Presentation at the 2013 ASEP Wind and Earthquake Engineering Seminar, Cagayan de Oro City

The 2013 ASEP Wind and Earthquake Engineering Seminar was held on August 16 to 17, 2013 in Cagayan de Oro City.

Because of work, I took a 7:00 am flight from Manila, arrived at the CDO airport by 8:30 am, took an hour long taxi that cost P450, and arrived at the hotel venue just in time for my 9:30 am presentation! Incidentally, at around 12:30 pm, it took me about P550 of taxi to get back to the airport in time for my 2:30 pm flight back to Manila. Including my breakfast meals, parking, and transpo from my home to the airport, I spent P1,500 for this trip (airfare was c/o ASEP) but I was given an honorarium of P1,500. Nothing earned, but also nothing lost, except the time I spent. But I hope it was worth it -- i.e. if only the participants learned from my presentation, I can't be any happier.

Anyway, all that for just an hour long presentation, but my video camera unfortunately stopped recording at around the 45-minute mark. If you're interested, this is actually almost the same presentation I made during the 2013 PICE National Midyear Convention. I did discuss a few more things including some engineering misconceptions about return periods and more -- which you can read about in this blog, if you're interested, via this link:
Here's the video. Please note that the presentation is in Filipino/Tagalog.
