Adam Smith

Adam Smith (baptised 16 June 1723 17 July 1790 [OS: 5 June 1723 17 July 1790]) was a Scottish moral philosopher and a pioneer of political economics. One of the key figures of the Scottish Enlightenment, Smith is the author of The Theory of Moral Sentiments and An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. The latter, usually abbreviated as The Wealth of Nations, is considered his magnum opus and the first modern work of economics. Smith is widely cited as the father of modern economics. Contributions: An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations is the masterpiece of the Scottish economist and moral philosopher Adam Smith. It was first published in 1776. It is an account of economics at the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, as well as a rhetorical piece written for the generally educated individual of the 18th century - advocating a free market economy as more productive and more beneficial to society. The book is often considered to have laid the basic groundwork for modern economic theory. Laissez-faire means allowing industry to be free from state intervention, especially restrictions in the form of tariffs and government monopolies.

Alcaraz, Arturo: was a leading member of a team that used steam produced from the heat of a volcano to produce electric power in 1967.

Banatao, Diosdado: introduced or developed accelerator chips that improved computer performance, helped make the internet possible by contributing to the development of the Ethernet controller chip, created the local bus concept for personal computers.

Campos, Paulo: wrote many papers in the field of nuclear medicine and was instrumental in building the first radioisotope lab in the Philippines.

Comiso, Josefino: the first person to discover a recurring area of open water in sea ice in the Cosmonaut Sea. Comiso was studying global warming at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.

Maramba, Felix: developed a profitable biogas system, building a power generator fuelled by coconut oil. Zara, Gregorio: discovered around 1930 the law of electrical kinetic resistance (Zara Effect). In 1955 he patented a two-way videophone. In the 1950s and 1960s he developed or improved alternate energy technologies. Amado Muriel Dr. Amado Muriel was recognized because of his important works and marvelous contributions to the field of theoretical physics, in particular, his advancement of theoretical apparatus to clarify turbulence. His new kinetic equation is valuable for discovering essential problems of non- equilibrium statistical procedure. Dr. Muriel discovered the accurate and estimated solutions for the performance of a two-level system, which were considered by his peers as a revolutionary contribution to a quantum Turing machine, now a rising field in quantum computing. Also, in his studies on stellar dynamics, he has recognized realistically that self-gravitation alone is adequate to create a hierarchy of structures in one dimension. He has unselfishly used up his own time and wealth in training many undergraduate and graduate students and researches at numerous universities in the country. Dr. Muriel has also extensively contributed to the progress of theoretical physics in the country. Dr. Muriel was born on November 24, 1939 and elected Academician in year 2003. Apolinario D. Nazarea Dr. Nazarea made significant role to the theories on biophysics and recombinant biotechnology

including his own conceptual framework on the structure of RNA/DNA investigation. Born on October 11, 1940. On the turning point of the country's technical course, his part in the expansion of biophysics and biotechnology is both essential and well timed. With his worldwide-cited systematic work and hypothetical expertise, he has laid the groundwork for the design of artificial vaccines on a sounder molecular beginning.
