MSC Origins Part IV – Start of 2 year courses at A. Flores St.
In 1991, MSC got the necessary permit to offer two-year courses in Office Management (OMC) and Computer Technology (CTC). In June of that year, classes for the two courses started with fifty (50) OMC and twenty-six (26) CTC students.
MSC at that time was occupying the second floor of the Jesusa building (on the first floor was Monte de Piedad Savings Bank) along A. Flores St. Its two classrooms had a capacity of 50 students only. MSC had to set morning and afternoon sessions to accommodate the new two-year course students totaling more than 70. Schedule for the short term course students were also set strategically so that there will be a classroom for each class. Saturday and evening classes were conducted.
Converting Kilograms to Pounds and Pounds to Kilograms
A Kilogram is 2.204622622 pounds. But for practical purposes we can consider 1 kilo = 2.2 pound conversion. So we can convert kilos to pound by multiplying by 2 then by 1.1or by 11 then by 0.2 depending on which is easier.
The Yellow Lep
by the Busybee
It was drizzling so I had to head back to the office. On my way to the office, I saw a brightly colored creature fly. “I’ve never seen that bird before. Now, where did it go?” I scanned the branches of the trees and looked for movement but found no such bird. Something yellow caught my eye. Flutterby, I meant, butterfly! There’s a bright yellow butterfly sipping nectar from the white flowers, I thought.
Because of my height and the relative position of the lepidopteran, I can only see parts of it. The body is like that of a bumblebee, yellow with black bands. The lepidopteran is dominantly yellow. The basal part of the forewings and the hind wings are yellow with black markings. The top/ upper half of the forewings are mainly black with white markings.
Featured batch: MSC CTC first batch – class of 1993
The first batch of two year course students of MSC was initially composed of fifty (50) students for the Office Management Course (OMC) and twenty-six (26) Computer Technology Course (CTC) students.
During the first semester of school year 1991-92, classes were held at the second floor of the Monte de Piedad Savings Bank along A. Flores St. By the second semester of that school year MSC has transferred to its new site at M. Paulino St. and this became the students second home for the rest of their stay at MSC.
MSC 9 – Dividing by 5, 50, 0.5, etc.
Five (5) is ten divided by two ( 10 / 2 ), so to divide a number by 10/2, we
- multiply it by 2, then
- divide by 10.
Since dividing by 10 only involves moving the decimal point one place to the left, we can easily divide by 5 by just using doubling or multiplication by 2.

MSC on its 25th year held its annual acquaintance day celebration, last June 20, 2014, Friday, with its actively participating faculty, staff and students.
Yells and shouts filled the hall in the afternoon with the games presented by each group with the winners receiving prizes.
