Post by POKNAT on Sat Sep 24, 2011 4:42 am


The USA bought the Philippines, Puerto Rico and Guam from Spain in 1898.

The Filipino-American Independence War from 1898 to 1902 ensued, killing
4,234 Americans and killing how many Filipinos? 16,000 were killed in
action and 200,000 died from famine and pestilence. (The Philippines
lost and was colonized until 1946.)

Los Angeles, California was co-founded in 1781 by a Filipino named
Antonio Miranda Rodriguez, along with 43 Latinos from Mexico sent by the
Spanish government.

What antibiotic did ! Filipino doctor Abelardo Aguilar co-discover? Hint: Brand is Ilosone, named after Iloilo. Erythromycin.

The one-chip video camera was first made by Marc Loinaz a Filipino inventor from New Jersey.

The first ever international Grandmaster from Asia was Eugenio Torre who won at the Chess Olympiad in Nice, France in 1974.

This son of two Filipino physicians
scored over 700 on the verbal portion of the Standardized Achievement
Test (SAT) before age 13 - Kiwi Danao Camara of Punahou School,
Hawaii... Edward Sanchez, a Mensa member, bagged the grand prize in the
first Philippine Search for Product Excellence in Information
Technology.

Who was the Filipino-American dancer who scored a perfect 1600 on the SAT? Joyce Monteverde of California.

Who invented the fluorescent lamp? Thomas Edison discovered the electric light bulb and the fluorescent lighting was thought up by Nikola Tesla.
But the fluorescent lamp we use today was invented by Agapito Flores (a
Cebu man named Benigno Flores of Bantayan Island, according to the
Philippine Daily inquirer), a Filipino scientist. Americans helped
then-Philippine leader Ramon Magsaysay to develop it for worldwide
commerce.

(Yes! Many foreigners have noted that the Filipino population has Asia's
highest rates of inventors and international beauty queens.) Two
Filipina beauties, Gloria Diaz and Margie Moran, chosen as Miss Universe
