Unbelievable Volcanic Event On Iceland


I cant believe it myself when I heard that airline transport for the United Kingdom from all over the world was suspended due to the eruption of a volcano in Iceland, Europe. The airlines canceled all flights for fear that the volcanic ash from the volcano would affect aircraft engines.

Eyjafjallajoekull, a volcano in Iceland, erupted on Thursday April 15, 2010, covered Britain with huge amount of ashes. 






The Volcano in Iceland really has a very unusual name, anybody would find it hard to pronounce. Eyjafjallajoekull which means "island-mountains glacier". By fact, its a volcano under the glaciers of ice. Its not really the name of the volcano, however people will refer to Eyjafjallajoekull as the volcano. This volcano has been dormant for more than 200 years. Its last eruption was on 1821. Only by December of 2009 that seismologist recorded seismic activity on the dormant volcano. Eyjafjallajoekull is only one of the 130 volcanic mountains of Iceland.

Cory Aquino Died - Cause Colon Cancer

cory aquino dead
Cory Aquino, 76 years of age, died Saturday morning at 3:18 am. The cause of death was advanced colon cancer. Diagnosed last year and now her long fight against her colon cancer finally ended. Cory Aquino then went on a cardiac arrest which ended her life. The mother of Philippine democracy, the icon of Philippine freedom, the women who ousted a powerful dictator of her time, finally rested in peace. It was for the first time in the world that the civilian people were called to defend the military against an oppressor.
corazon aquino is dead

Our prayers are always with you as you journey into a higher life, in heaven. Just yesterday I thought of sending you a letter, just as many thousand people who have did, especially the youth. But this morning I was too late.

I always remember her, as I was watching the news, with her yellow dress on, a trademark that she alway
s carries.
I was still young then,
but I can still recall how she led a nation. She went to office as the first Filipina to have a seat in Malacañang Palace. Driven by the force of the people, a hope of an entire nation, who before her was a nation of unrest. Before her seat as President, turmoil was evident and even during her time, during the Quo, she stood firm, and with the strength of God and the people on her side, she succeeded.
cory aquino died

Not only in the Philippines, but also to the entire world, she showed the capacity of a woman. She embraced all fear and all doubts after the death of her good husband Ninoy Aquino. She is a Philippine beloved and a lover of our nation, a true Filipina Heroine.

“She was headstrong and single-minded in one goal, and that was to remove all vestiges of an entrenched dictatorship," Raul C. Pangalangan, former dean of the Law School at the University of the Philippines, said in 2009. "We all owe her in a big way."

Because of her, we the Filipino people learned the true meaning of freedom. Since then, many changed. We became more aware and more conscious about the true duty of a Government official or agency, the importance of press freedom, the people’s rights, and many more important aspects that we all share the same today.

And it was only in her Presidency that I have seen what should all presidents be, free from corruption. Maria Corazon Cojuangco Aquino was a woman of good faith in God, God fearing, and a lover of all people.

Our prayers will always be with you as you embark on your new journey in life, a life of light, peace, and joy. It is a life much more different from the life that was offered to you while you were in Earth. Rest in peace President Corazon Aquino.

Michael Jackson Died - Passed Away

Dead Michael JacksonMichael Jackson at the age of 50 died yesterday, the cause of death was cardiac arrest. I was in shock when I found it out on Facebook thru a friend about this tragic loss of a great artist.

Michael Jackson contributed greatly in the music industry and entertainment. His influence spread throughout the world, transforming many areas of music, particularly influencing, Dance, Hip Hop and R&B. Being dubbed as the “King of Pop”, Michael Jackson showed the world his concert styles entertaining huge number of crowds. Doing the “Robot Dance” and “Moon Walk”. His audiences and fans come in many ages, from teen to adults; even my mother liked his songs. My personal favorite was “I’ll be there” a 70’s hit when Michael Jackson was still with the band called Jackson 5 together with his brother. And now was revised by Mariah Carey and American R&B singer Trey Lorenz.

During his career Michael Jackson faced many controversial issues that includes a child abuse accusation by a 13-year-old child named Jordan Chandler and his father Evan Chandler. Also rumors of health problems such as Vitiligo and Lupus. Michael Jackson in an interview with Oprah, admitted he has Vitiligo, a very rare skin disease that affects only 1% to 2% of the population. Vitiligo is a skin disease that causes the skin or other parts of the body to loose its pigment therefore loosing its color and making the eyes sensitive to light. The treatments he uses for his condition further lighten his skin tone, and, with the application of makeup to even out blotches, he could appear very pale.

Playboy in the Philippines - A change in the Philippines' image

Playboy, an American adult magazine company, has just launched its Philippine copies. This would be a mark of another change in the image of the Philippines as a nation. Although indirectly, but I’m sure it will receive many criticisms and may even trigger protests. Not to mention the would-be reaction from the Catholic Church and the women societies.

Things do change in time. Launchings like these would have not been permitted if this had happened 10 years before our time.

The Philippine issues, however, wont show full frontal nudity as promised by its editors, “We’re adjusting it to local conditions” says Editor-In-Chief Beting Laygo Dolor. As Playboy had already ran into difficulties way back April 2006 on Indonesia, when their operations were temporarily suspended because of Muslim Protest against their magazines.

With Playboy’s brand name on the market, surely many readers would be already lining up for a copy. Not only for the Masculine Minded individual but I am sure many curious minds would grab one at least.

Where is the bunny?

Scam exposed by blogging (Edited due to legal reasons)

I have just watched a news on our local TV network ABS CBN Tv Patrol about an Australian guy. He wrote on his blog, about him being victimized by a Filipino socialite. In his blog he wrote on how he desperately wants his money back after selling his estate on Australia just to send it to his boyfriend. The $70,000 money was intended to open a restaurant and a travel agency in the Philippines. Only to know in the end that he was victimized by his boyfriend and is nowhere to be found, running away with his money. He also named a number of personalities that are connected with his ex-boyfriend, also addressing the issue to a local newspaper, wherein his boyfriend used to work, even sending letters to its president.

Included in his blog was how his boyfried satisfied his cocaine dependency using his money and getting large amounts of credits from other people, who his boyfriend was unable to pay. The turn of events on how he lost his money. How he handled the situation and how he handled himself in the situation.

I don’t want to comment much about this issue cause, I myself don’t know each side’s story. All I can say is it is a lesson that we should put in our minds. Everyone should think that the Internet is not a safe place, especially if money is involved.

Furthermore, because of blogging and using blogs as our tool, we can raise the awareness for these kinds of exploitations. It is amazing how powerful a blog could be used as a tool and influence people, in a good way.

Half Cup Less - Philippine Rice Shortage

As of the moment, in disbelief I wondered how did this happen? I’m hearing about a rice shortage? My goodness. The Philippines is a rice eating country. Although we don’t export rice, the Philippines is considered one of the biggest rice producers in the world. And it is so ironic that the people now are advised to eat half of the rice they used to eat, which is, a bad thing. Considering Philippines supposedly has an agricultural economic set-up. Our lands are fertile and we have farmers. Maybe it is the price we pay for neglecting our agricultural necessities. The government is too complacent about putting enough focus on agrarian reforms, additional research and machineries, farmer support, etc. Now we have come to a point wherein everyone is affected. And the people who suffer the most are the poor who rely on rice. That includes my family, friends and me.

PROMDI - Probinsya Muna Development Initiative

If PROMDI or Probinsya Muna Development Initiative by Lito Osmeña have been pushed thru and implemented we might have avoided this scenario. If there was only a person who embodied this ideal about concentrating on the development on the outskirts or in the provinces by creating projects that would develop and utilize resources effectively and in a cost efficient way. Things like better road access, financial supports, additional training, community programs, or the Philippines could ask large business institutions to adapt-a-rice-field of some sort and giving them tax excemption benefits. Sounds crazy but any nice idea would do.

Eating Noodles

Eating instant noodles instead of rice, that is what the higher officials in the government are advising. This is a funny thing. Maybe they don’t know that we, the poor people, pair rice with noodles! Especially in the morning. Not just because it is easy to prepare but also because it is affordable. Everytime we need a soup to sip we always buy noodles. It also gives a feeling of being full in the stomach eventhough what was eaten was not nutritionally adviceable.

All I can say is, the government should take the necessary initiative. Study the agircultural system of the top rice exporting countries such as Thailand, Vietnam, India, Pakistan, and even the U. S. A.

Oh, im sad, naiiyak na ako sa pinas. The Philippines makes me wanna cry.
