JBLCF: Bringing history back to life
Our past defines our future. History tells us the way of life of our ancestors. It links us to the era of evolution and revolution. By scanning through the pages of our existence, we've discovered thousands of things that liberated our curiosity. We begin asking ourselves question that never seemed to end. Fortunately, archaeologists exist. It was because of them that we were able to uncover the secrets of the past. Luckily, Ilonggos don't need to spend 24-hours-a-day and seven-days-a-week of our busy life excavating pieces of the ancient times to reveal history.

Once a doctor in our Neurology class mentioned that only 1% of our brain is used throughout the lifetime. Does it mean that Einstein and Newton consumed 1.99% or more? Or maybe their prefontal cortex were grotesquely huge? The rationale is unknown. The only definite fact is that amidst the present economic pandemonium there are hundreds of young geniuses who are deprived of the opportunity to excel. Sadly, these young generation is our future.
