Visit Senior Chat Rooms

Since I have been in the online bloggosphere for sometime now, being involved in social networking services is not really my thing, I mean not that I don't want to join the hype with almost everyone in the social networking, it's just that my time is really limited in those kinds of things, I haven't updated my friendster for some time, I really haven't been active even if I really wanted to. There are other options like chatting online, and since most of the time I am online, I can still communicate with my peers or some colleagues, just keeping in touch with some old friends.

In fact chatting is a very good way to gather online friends and even invite them to your social networking account, there are many chatrooms out there that offer these services and can really increase your presence online, like Senior Chat Rooms, it is not only for the seniors but anyone of all ages, even the middle age individuals can keep in touch with their past, keep in touch with friends from different country and able to create a culture, that's what online chatting is and it can never be replaced with other methods of networking, since we can interact with other people in real time and respond and the same time by chatting. So it is still your choice of what method to use and just remember to be always to chat smart and safe.

Thats what Senior Chat Rooms is all about, visit the site and you can experience the virtual world for seniors, If you know someone who is into chatting, better go to the site and sign up, the best part is it is free so what are you waiting for, sign up now

Pizza Anyone?

It's been a long day at work, what better way to relieve some of the stress than to eat about it. I have been to many pizzerias here in Cebu, I have noticed that more and more people are going into pizzerias more often, also many establishments and franchise are sprouting around like mushrooms, yes, pizzas are becoming one of our favorite food especially to professionals and office workers. Not only that it is delicious, it is easier to order and offers delivery services which is very comfortable especially who works in the office and doesn't have that luxury time to go to the exact pizzeria store/restaurant.

Though I just recently blog about an pizza scandal which is not a good sign but doesn't really stop people from consuming another slice.

I just ate at a pizzeria restaurant in Talamban (near San Carlos), the Caldas Pizza, We went there as many said that they have very good pizzas and they are affordable. I know it was still new there because I never saw a pizzeria there when I was in college and is also a new franchise from their main store which is located in Lahug.

Anyways, we were there and were not disappointed with the result, their pizzas were very good, the place was good (though its near the streets), I recommend this to anyone who loves pizza at the same time tight with their budget.

It's almost 2am, and a little dizzy..better fly now

Finding A Webhost

It has been a long time since I started blogging the net, though I have more than one blogs to maintain, it is not that easy since I have limited control over my files and even the layouts. Though most free blog provider does an excellent job in providing us users and bloggers a tool to use for blogging and for free.

Of course, before purchasing a hosting plan, you must first know the basics, One is to know the company of the hosting provider, I have been searching for reliable reviews for hosting company and its package. Finding the right hosting review is not easy especially to many sites offering many sources and information with comments from other users.I have started reading blogs of different hosting reviews. In fact, I have visited some of their links and featured host company and I have learned a lot about how webhosting works, I also found many articles and relates about web advice and other advice like making money online, it is definitely a greate visit for the hosting review. In this financial crisis, we must be really wise in how we spend our resources and that includes in choosing the right hosting company by reading reliable reviews and information.

I have read their reviews especially the top hosting sites and I learned a lot from their reviews, including how it works, packages, links and reliable reviews. Now that I have the list of hosting providers, I would definitely can choose the right host for me and for you too.

Its Friday the 13th Again!

Second time for this year the friday the 13th has pop up in the calendars of 2009.

I found this interesting article about Friday the 13th, enjoy

If Friday the 13th is unlucky, then 2009 is an unusually unlucky year. This week's Friday the 13th is one of three to endure this year.

The first came last month. The next is in November. Such a rare triple-threat occurs only once every 11 years.

The origin of the link between bad luck and Friday the 13th is murky. The whole thing might date to Biblical times (the 13th guest at the Last Supper betrayed Jesus). By the Middle Ages, both Friday and 13 were considered bearers of bad fortune. In modern times, the superstition permeates society.

Here are five of our favorite Friday-the-13th facts:

1. Fear of Friday the 13th — one of the most popular myths in science — is called paraskavedekatriaphobia as well as friggatriskaidekaphobia. Triskaidekaphobia is fear of the number 13.

2. Many hospitals have no room 13, while some tall buildings skip the 13th floor and some airline terminals omit Gate 13.

3. President Franklin D. Roosevelt would not travel on the 13th day of any month and would never host 13 guests at a meal. Napoleon and President Herbert Hoover were also triskaidekaphobic, with an abnormal fear of the number 13.

4. Mark Twain once was the 13th guest at a dinner party. A friend warned him not to go. "It was bad luck," Twain later told the friend. "They only had food for 12." Superstitious diners in Paris can hire a quatorzieme, or professional 14th guest.

5. The number 13 suffers from its position after 12, according to numerologists who consider the latter to be a complete number — 12 months in a year, 12 signs of the zodiac, 12 gods of Olympus, 12 labors of Hercules, 12 tribes of Israel, 12 apostles of Jesus, 12 days of Christmas and 12 eggs in a dozen.

Pythagorean legacy

Meanwhile the belief that numbers are connected to life and physical things — called numerology — has a long history.

"You can trace it all the way from the followers of Pythagoras, whose maxim to describe the universe was 'all is number,'" says Mario Livio, an astrophysicist and author of "The Equation That Couldn't Be Solved" (Simon & Schuster, 2005). Thinkers who studied under the famous Greek mathematician combined numbers in different ways to explain everything around them, Livio said.

In modern times, numerology has become a type of para-science, much like the meaningless predictions of astrology, scientists say.

"People are subconsciously drawn towards specific numbers because they know that they need the experiences, attributes or lessons associated with them, that are contained within their potential," says professional numerologist Sonia Ducie. "Numerology can 'make sense' of an individual's life (health, career, relationships, situations and issues) by recognizing which number cycle they are in, and by giving them clarity."

However, mathematicians dismiss numerology, saying it lacks any scientific merit.

"I don't endorse this at all," Livio said, when asked to comment on the popularity of commercial numerology. Seemingly coincidental connections between numbers will always appear if you look hard enough, he said.

Prosti Passenger

If you are living in Philippines particularly in urban areas, Jeepneys are the main mode of transporation, it is affordable , fast(if no traffict) and most fun if you ride with your friends. Many things can happen a jeepney, when travelling you can see different types of people, from young to old, students to professionals, rich or poor(true especially in this crisis) and people from all walks of life. Just as interesting as it is, many things could happen in a jeepney like quarelling, gossips, fonding(careful ladies), caught by CITOM, students expression when they know they will be late for class/work(including yours truly).

Anyways, yesterday noon, on my way home from a mall, I rode a jeepney which I am only the passenger at that time, later, an old man rode the jeepney a sitted across my position, then a very young sexy lady rode sitting beside the old man (not that I wonder why she sitted beside him), so after about a block away, a middle age lady rode and sitted at my side, so we are 4 in all. At first I thought that they are a father and daughter until I notice that they started whispering to each other, At first wonder why they are whispering when they talk, I though it was just nothing, I eventually hear there conversation (not that I eavesdrop of something, I just heard it) about monetary words(money that is), just as before they get off the jeepney the girl went down first and said to the old man (translated from bisaya)"I will be going now SIR", (what the??) I thought she is the daughter and after a meters away, the old man get off the jeepney, I was still wondering at that time until the middle age lady said "They will eventually meet at the same place... at the motel located between where the young lady and old man stop".I followed by sight as to where the old man is heading and she is right .I was then like. woah really?.. and she said that the lady is still very young, maybe in her 20's or something.

Though I know things like this is happening for a long time now, but still seeing it personally is just not right, I know I could not do much anything about it but I really can't stand to see if that happens to someone I knew (perhaps my relatives or my future daughter), Though society really has to blame this and a lot of wrong perspective in life.

To BackOrder a domain

Since I already made up my mind on having my own webhost and a website, having my own domain name is also very essential. I did inquire online about my domain name (eg. Only to find out that it is already taken. I have searched about it and they say that the domain will expire this month, I hope I can get that domain name to start my plans. But I know it's not easy as the owner of that particular domain name is a domain broker, which means that it is privately owned by a company to uses domain names as a business of buy and sell.

Knowing all of these my chance of getting the domain name is slim and if ever I will still pursue of acquiring it, I will be bidding for the domain name in the auction which costs a lot bigger than ordering an ordinary domain. Internet sources say that it will take a 75 days after the the start of the expiration date before it will be available to the open market which is really not good for me. Anyways, there are a lot of domain names out there to think about, just crossing my fingers right now and wish the domain owner will not renew anymore the domain I wanted.

Bullies in the Office | Workplace

I found this article somewhere and find it interesting..enjoy

The office might be far from the playground, but it’s not off limits to bullies. From a screaming boss to snubbing colleagues, bullies can create a “war zone” in the workplace.

In a recent study, bullied employees likened their experiences to a battle, water torture, a nightmare or a noxious substance. Understanding the seriousness of workplace bullying and what it feels like to get bullied could help managers put the brakes on the behavior, shown to afflict 25 to 30 percent of employees sometime during their careers.

“Many Americans are familiar with sexual and racial harassment, but not generalized workplace bullying,” said study team member Sarah Tracy of Arizona State University. Bullying can lead to higher company costs including increased employee illness, use of sick days, and medical costs, ultimately affecting productivity, she added.

Workplace bullying can include “screaming, cursing, spreading vicious rumors, destroying the target’s property or work product, excessive criticism, and sometimes hitting, slapping, and shoving.” Subtle behaviors, such as silent treatment, disregard of requests and exclusion from meetings, count as bullying.

Bully icons

The scientists interviewed 17 women and 10 men ranging from 26 to 72 years old, who had experienced bullying. Often, people have trouble putting into words their emotions surrounding bully behavior. So the researchers analyzed the metaphors found throughout the participants’ descriptions of bullying.

More than any other metaphor, participants characterized bullying as a contest or battle, with a female religious educator saying, “I have been maimed. ... I’ve been character assassinated.” Others expressed feeling “beaten, abused, ripped, broken, scared and eviscerated,” the researchers stated in the upcoming issue of the journal Management Communication Quarterly.

The bullies were described as two-faced actors, narcissistic dictators and devils, leading workers to feel like vulnerable children, slaves and prisoners in these situations. As one employee explained, "I feel like I have 'kick me' tattooed on my forehead."

Bully-proof office

How can you take the bite out of a bully-fied office? “An important first step of changing workplace bullying, is helping people to understand that it's more than just kid stuff,” Tracy told LiveScience.

Early intervention can nip bullying in the bud before it escalates into an established pattern, one resulting in high company costs. The problem is that most bully victims keep their mouths shut, whispering their horrid experiences to close friends rather than higher-ups. The use of metaphors, the researchers suggested, is more subtle and more likely to seep into conversations both public and private.

Alberto's Pizza Scandal

If you read this post and expect to see some pron pics or videos here, sorry to disappoint you, there are absolutely no pron here, I can't really think a better title for this post to attract readers( but its somehow effective since you are reading this right now(haha).

It is really a disturbing news here recently, I've seen in the online news that students and a teacher were rushed to the hospital hours after they dine at Albertos Pizza, so before anything else, I would say that this is really a very unfortunate happening for the store, I mean personally, I really like their pizzas and have ordered several times there. They are becoming popular for the masses here in cebu. The pizza taste good at affordable prices, they even expand their franchise (total of 4 I think). But anyways, the students suffer diarrhea and stomach pains.

And the owner admitted that there are findings of spoiled ground beef( What the??!), It is sad really knowing the company is getting popular amongs consumers and it is really difficult to say that the incident was a frame up or just a frantic show to destroy the name of the store since most victims are students and an instructor which is really a strong case for them, anyways, not that I warned everyone (or myself) for eating at the store. I hope this is only a isolated incident.

Future Moms

I saw a young woman in the mall probably in her early 20's, it is really amazing to see even though she is pregnant, she still has that beauty in her, everytime I look at her, It seems that she is not pregnant, it's just that I was thinking how she maintained her outlook that seems very rare to find. That glowing outlook appearance which is also reflective in her physical appearance. Looking at her feels like she's enjoying life and with the unborn baby she is carrying, and having that attitude can really can help the development of the baby in the future. Though I am a guy, I know it's not easy to be pregnant just what my sister said.

If you have watch movies like greys anatomy, their celebrity even though pregnant still has that glowing in support with their makeup. For women who are pregnant, finding beauty products that are safe for both mother and fetus is essential. Beaute de Maman is a unique line of health and beauty products developed by a board-certified obstetrician to treat problems specifically related to the physiological and hormonal changes experienced by women during pregnancy. Infact, Beaute de Maman products have made it into the hands of such Hollywood celebrity moms-to-be.

So even though you are pregnant. You can still maintain that light feeling as seems that your are not pregnant at all. It is nice to look at those ladies, and I would like that to see also to be my future wife. This product is really amazing.

Friendster Not Updated

Another quiet night for posting a blog entry, It has been really busy these days and so as my blogs, it seems that in the midst of everything. I still have the time for blogging, well.. that is only my blogs. I almost forgot I have a friendster account. It seems I have been ignoring my account these past months or even years. I've just been thinking that with all the my internet presence, I became lazy in my social networking accounts. Not that I don't want to invite or being invited, really do like to get involve though, it's not that I don't have anything to post (pictures, blog, etc).

Not that I don't care (sometimes...haha) to what other people are doing or posting. I mean there comes a time when of course we want to post and show pictures of our outings, experiences, events, circle of friends, even their gf/bf, wife/husbands( wives or husbands..hehehe). Anyways, its really great to know and see the smiles in their faces knowing that they are happy in their pictures posted.

I was once a very active with active with my friendster account, at that time social networking is not yet that popular unlike now. I remember when I was still a high school student at that time. Friendster is not very popular at that time, there are only few members including yours truly. I already have many online friends at that time, large percentage of it are those I haven't meet in person..hehe..

So it just happen that I wasn't able to access my account for three months (I think) and as a result they deactivated my account without informing or sending me a notice (those jerks!)..anyways, they send me an option to activate my account again which I did and (woosshh) my account has restarted to its time I registered to a new account meaning all my contacts are all erased!!! So that's the story about it and I think that's one of the reasons(subconsciously) why I haven't update or just too lazy to update my account.

Well, that's reality. But since I started blogging, I have been addicted to it (slightly), but its fun really I can post my opinions though I don't have pictures in this particular post, you already got the message...
