Bacolod City recently ranked no. 1 in a survey by MoneySense Magazine as the “Best Place to Live in the Philippines”. Bacolod ranks 3rd among the top ten “Next Wave Cities” of the Philippines for the best location for business process outsourcing[38] and offshoring[39] according to the 2010 report of the Commission on Information and Communications Technology.

Etymology

Baclod (), is derived from baklod[40] (Old Spelling: baclod), the Old Hiligaynon or Old Ilonggo (Old Spelling: Ylongo and Ilongo) word for a “hill, mound, rise, hillock, down, any small eminence or elevation”, since the resettlement was founded on a stony, hilly area, now the barangay of Granada. It was officially called Ciudad de Baclod (City of Bacolod) when Municipalidad de Baclod (Municipality of Bacolod) was converted into a city in 1938.

History

Spanish colonial period

Historical church accounts provide a glimpse of the early years of Bacolod as a mere small settlement by the riverbank known as Magsungay (English: Magsungay). When the neighboring settlement of Bago was elevated into the status of a small town in 1575, it had several religious dependencies and one of which was the village of Magsungay. The early missionaries placed the village under the care and protection of San Sebastin ( ) sometime in the middle of the 18th century. A corregidor () by the name of Luis Fernando de Luna, donated a relic of San Sebastin for the growing mission, and since then, the village came to be known as San Sebastin de Magsungay.

Bacolod was not established as a town until 1755 or 1756, after the inhabitants of the coastal settlement of San Sebastin de Magsungay, were attacked by forces[49] under Datu[50] Bantlan[51] of Sulu[52] on July 14, 1755 and the villagers transferred from the coast to a hilly area called Baclod. Bernardino de los Santos became the first gobernadorcillo[53] ( ). The town of Bacolod was constituted as a parroquia () in 1788 under the secular clergy[54], but did not have a resident priest[55] until 1802, as the town was served by the priest from Bago[56], and later Binalbagan[57]. By 1790, slave raids on Bacolod by Moro[58] pirates[59] had ceased.

On 11 February 1802, Fr. Eusebio Laurencio became acting parish priest of Bacolod. In September 1806, Fr. Len Pedro was appointed interim[60] parish priest and the following year became the first regular parish priest.

In September 1817, Fray () Julin Gonzaga from Barcelona[61] was appointed as the parish priest. He encouraged the people to settle once again near the sea. He also encouraged migration to Bacolod and the opening of lands to agriculture and industry.

In 1846, upon the request of Msgr[62]. Romualdo Jimeno, bishop[63] of Cebu[64] and Negros[65] at that time, Gobernador General () Narciso Clavera y Zalda sent to Negros a team of Recollect[66] missionaries headed by Fr. Fernando Cuenca. A decree of 20 June 1848 by Gobernador General Clavera ordered the restructuring of Negros politically and religiously. The following year (1849), Negros Island[67] Gobernadorcillo Manuel Valdevieso y Morquecho transferred the capital of the Province of Negros[68] from Himamaylan[69] to Bacolod and the Augustinian[70] Recollects were asked to assume spiritual administration of Negros, which they did that same year. Transfer of Bacolod to the Recollects, however, took place only in 1871. Fray Mauricio Ferrero became the first Augustinian Recollect parish priest of Bacolod and successor to the secular priest[71], Fr. Mariano vila. In 1863, a compulsory primary public school system was set up.

In 1889, Bacolod became the capital of Occidental Negros when the Province of Negros was politically divided into the separate provinces of Occidental Negros (Spanish[72]: Negros Occidental) and Oriental Negros (Spanish[73]: Negros Oriental[74]).

Negros Revolution

The success of the uprising in Bacolod was attributed to the low morale of the local Spanish detachment, due to its defeat in Panay[75] and Luzon[76] and to the psychological warfare waged by Generals Aniceto Lacson[77] and Juan Araneta[78]. In 1897, a battle in Bacolod was fought at Matab-ang River. A year later, on November 5, 1898, the Negrense Revolucionarios (), armed with knives, bolos[79], spears, and rifle-like nipa palm[80] stems, and pieces of sawali[81] or amakan mounted on carts, captured the convento (), presently Palacio Episcopal (), where Coronel ( ) Isidro de Castro y Cisneros, well-armed cazadores () and platoon[82]s of Guardias Civiles (), surrendered.

Cantonal Republic of Negros

On 7 November 1898, most of the revolutionary army gathered together to establish a provisional junta and to confirm the elections of Aniceto Lacson[83] as president, Juan Araneta[84] as war-delegate, as well as the other officials. For a brief moment, the provinces of Occidental Negros and Oriental Negros were reunited under the cantonal government of the Negrense Revolucionarios, from 6 November 1898 to the end of February 1899, making Bacolod the capital. On March 1899, the American forces[85] led by Colonel[86] James G. Smith occupied Bacolod, the revolutionary capital of Repblica Cantonal de Negros ().

American colonial period

Repblica de Negros became a U.S. territory[87] on April 30, 1901. Negros[88] was once again separated, reverting Bacolod to its status as the capital of Occidental Negros.

The public school of Instituto Rizal ( ) opened its doors to students on 1 July 1902. Colegio de Nuestra Seora de la Consolacin (), the first private institution in the province of Negros Occidental, was established in Bacolod by the Augustinian[89] sisters[90] on March 11, 1919 and opened in July 1919.

A historic event took place in 1938 when Municipality[91] of Bacolod was elevated into a city through Commonwealth Act[92] No. 326 passed by the 1st National Assembly of the Philippines[93] creating the City of Bacolod. Assemblyman Pedro C. Hernaez of the second district[94] of Negros Occidental sponsored the bill. The law was passed on June 18, 1938. Bacolod was formally inaugurated as a chartered city[95] on October 19, 1938 by virtue of Commonwealth Act No. 404, highlighted by the visit of Commonwealth[96] President[97] Manuel L. Quezn[98]. President Quezn appointed Alfredo Montelbano, Sr.[99] as the first city mayor of Bacolod.

Japanese occupation and Allied liberation

In World War II[100], Bacolod City was occupied by the Japanese forces[101] on May 21, 1942. Lieutenant General Takeshi Kono, the Japanese commanding officer[102] of the 77th Infantry Brigade, 102nd Division, seized the home of Don[103] ( ) Mariano Ramos, the first appointed Presidente Municipal () of Bacolod, which served as the seat of power and the watchtower of the city. The city was liberated by joint Filipino[104] and American forces on May 29, 1945. It took time to rebuild the city after liberation.

The local military built and established of the general headquarters and camp bases of the Philippine Commonwealth Army was active on 1942 to 1946 and the 7th Infantry Regiment of the Philippine Constabulary was active on 1944 to 1946 and they stationed and located in Bacolod City during World War II.

Independent Philippines

When the country finally gained complete independence from the United States, the city’s public markets and slaughterhouses were rebuilt during the administration of former mayor Vicente Remiti from 1947 to 1949. In 1948, a fire razed a portion of the records section of the old city hall that consumed the rear end of the building and with it, numerous priceless documents of the city. When Batas Pambansa[106] Blg. 51 was approved on December 22, 1979 and came into effect in 1980, the chartered City of Bacolod was converted into a highly urbanized city. The political relations with Negros Occidental were severed and the residents effectively lost their eligibility to vote for provincial officials because of this new status. In January 1985, the original hardwood and coral structure of Palacio Episcopal was almost entirely destroyed by a fire. Among the damage of the raging fire were items of significant historical value. The reconstruction of Palacio which took more than two years, was completed in 1990.

The Plaza was constructed back in 1927 as a place for recreation, political, spiritual and cultural activities; it seems to be quite a popular site for outdoor picnic and concerts. The gazeebo/bandstand is often where the stage is located and this is quite apt since inscribed along the sides of the roofing are the names of Western musical composers like Beethoven, Wagner, Haydn, and Mozart.

6 Responses to “Jam Step Not About Numbers Its About Advocacy Of Healthy Lifestyle"”

  1. Healthy Lifestyle? I usually go on a medium intensity run for 60 minutes a day, four to five days a week. In addition, I do a total of at least 150 push ups and sit ups in each work out. I don’t consume more than 1500-1600 calories a day. I eat little to no junk food, and take my vitamins. I’m 18, male, and weigh about 164, around 14 to 15 percent body fat. Do I lead a healthy lifestyle? If there are ways to improve, let me know.

      The computer is not a healthy lifestyle for people. It programs us to thinking we can find everything on here. Jobs, pay bills, shop, everything! We can do that ourselves and it seems technology is taking the chores away from us, that can be easily done by human themself. The computer can help us though when we need to find information, imformation fast. Websites help us retain information, advertisements are just like commericals there just trying to sell or maniupulate us to buy whatever their advertising. The computer is not improving our healthy lifestyle. Peoples eyes can go out of sight and hurt very badly(like mine and i’m only 15 years old.) from years and years staring at the computer. The worst thing to stare at is a computer screen — I don’t know why I still do it for hours at end, but I do. The computer will never promote the quality of healthy lifestyle, its just not possible. The computer can convince people to stop drugs and alcohol but if you think about it would you rather have an obsession over the computer for hours at the day, you have to be near the computer you have to be on it then doing drugs or alcohol? The computer is just as bad addiction as alcohol and drugs. The computer cannot HELP us other then give us fast information when we need it. The computer although has so much information and so many untrusted sites you never know if what your reading is a lie. And I hope I get 10 points because I just wasted my time answering this long question, I hope you weren’t just asking this for the heck of this — I hope it was for some essay lol.

      Take care bye
