Michael Jackson and A(H1N1) Virus

What do this two names have in common?, (No, Michael Jackson didn't die of h1n1 virus). They are one(two) of the most popular names/terms in the world today. Unfortunately, it is also a cause of grief for everyone (fans or not fans alike). This post is a tribute of the late "King of Pop".

Since the news spread, every time I passed by a store or a watch a show in television. Almost all send a message of tribute to Michael Jackson , I mean who can blame them, He is one or probably the most influential person in the world. I often hear his song played in houses, radios and the internet . I even saw a flash game in tribute to him. Most searches around the world wide web and the search engines type only his name as of today.

Even downloads of his songs over the net are hit as though it is a new album or composed song is released. yeah, it was sudden. I admit I may not be a fanatic fan of Michael Jackson but just asking if you know that person, only a counted individuals doesn't know him (unless they have no radio ,television and live on caves).

This event will just be a reminder that people will remember only good things(legacy) for a person even if he/she has not been on a really right track(direction) of his/her life till his time had come.

Michael Jackson is Dead

At age 50, the "King of Pop" Michael Jackson died at a hospital in UCLA Medical Center in Los Angeles.

The circumstances of Jackson's death were not immediately clear. Jackson was not breathing when Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to a call at his Los Angeles home about 12:30 p.m.,

So many people wanted to verify the early reports of Jackson's death that the computers running Google's news section interpreted the fusillade of "Michael Jackson" requests as an automated attack for about half an hour Thursday evening.


Comeback had been planned
Jackson was preparing for what was to be his greatest comeback: He was scheduled for an unprecedented 50 shows at a London arena, with the first set for July 13. He was in rehearsals in Los Angeles for the concert, an extravaganza that was to capture the classic Jackson magic: showstopping dance moves, elaborate staging and throbbing dance beats.

Hundreds of people gathered outside the hospital as word of his death spread. The emergency entrance at the UCLA Medical Center, which is near Jackson’s rented home, was roped off with police tape.

“Ladies and gentlemen, Michael Jackson has just died,” a woman boarding a Manhattan bus called out shortly after the news was announced. Immediately many riders reached for their cell phones.

Javascript: How to String/Characters to any special characters using javascript

This is the reversal part of my previous post

Convert string to special characters you want using replace() function in javascript. Useful when converting characters to be saved in the database or passed as a parameter in a url.



function convertSC(oldstring)
{

oldstring = oldstring.replace(/_DQ_/g, "\"");
oldstring = oldstring.replace(/_SQ_/g, "'");
oldstring = oldstring.replace(/_@_/g, "&");
oldstring = oldstring.replace(/_AND_/g, "&");
oldstring = oldstring.replace(/_LT_/g, "<");
oldstring = oldstring.replace(/_GT_/g, ">");
oldstring = oldstring.replace(/_PC_/g, "%");
oldstring = oldstring.replace(/_DQ_/g, "\"");

return oldstring;
}

Example:
var convertme = convertSC("Total is 100_PC_");
alert(converme);

Output:
Total is 100%

Searching a Web Host

Recently, I have been searching all over the web about web hosting companies. Since my blog has been around for more than a year now, and I have purchased a domain for it. I think it is time for me to move to hosting my own site, I have been using free blogging services which is not that bad if you are just starting a blog or a blogsite. Also, having your own webhost has its advantage, you can control everything in your site from the designs and the layout without any restrictions. Having your own host also will help your site look professional and has a higher presence when it comes to search engines or SEO.

Finding the right webhost is easier said than done, from my research on the internet. I have visited different reviews, each with their own picks(webhost) and their own rankings, first I am pessimistic about some of the review, it seems that some are just advertising their own choices and not really look carefully about which is the right hosting for everybody.

I have read many web hosting reviews and I found a site which for me offers the best reviews and comparisons for my webhosting needs. I have read their blog about finding the right web host and I am very satisfied with the results. I find their reviews unbiased and doesn't post the reviews to advertise but to give the right description of a certain web host site.



The site offers variety of hosting options for those who want to purchase a web host. They categorized their options for users to choose which to choose depending on their specialties. They also have the hosting awards for the best in their respective categories or the web host main strength. For those who want to have information about web host and which one to choose. Visit the site for more information.

You think you have family problems?


Two men met at a bus stop and struck up a conversation.



One of them kept complaining of family problems.



Finally, the other man said: "You think you have family problems? Listen
to my situation."



"A few years ago, I met a young widow with a grown-up daughter. We got
married and I got myself a stepdaughter. Later, my father married my
stepdaughter. That made my stepdaughter, my step-mother.



And my father became my stepson. Also, my wife became mother-in-law of
her father-in-law."



"Much later the daughter of my wife, my stepmother, had a son.

This boy was my half-brother because he was my father's son. But he was
also the son of my wife's daughter which made him my wife's grand-son.
That made me the grand-father of my half-brother."



"This was nothing until my wife and I had a son. Now the half-sister of
my son, my stepmother, is also the Grandmother. This makes my father,
the brother-in-law of my child, whose stepsister is my father's wife, I am
my stepmother's brother-in-law, my wife is her own child's aunt, my son
is my father's nephew & I am my OWN GRANDFATHER!"



"And you think you have FAMILY PROBLEMS!?"

Diesel Parts Pros

Getting stuck in the street during rush hours is one of the most annoying things that could happen anytime, not to mention the heavy traffic and the hot heads for everyone around, when going to work , school, or other important matters. I just got caught up in a traffic jam this morning, knowing the cause was engine trouble of an another car. It really happens particularly in the busy streets where the temperature is hot especially in summer.

In a taxi cab, it could get very warm and discomforting. There diesel parts that offers a solution to most of auto problems. For example the discount compressor, it is your source for automotive ac compressor and much more. We offer the lowest price on a/c compressor, condenser, drier, air conditioning compressor and more. The auto air conditioning compressor is an important part of the car and we have you covered.

Getting to know your vehicle is important because it you can determine if ever there is an engine trouble and know which part need repairs. You cannot always rely on someone to check up with your car over and over again, also to avoid extra cost in repairs. It is really tough purchasing a new vehicle in this time of global economic crisis. You might as well do the works in your vehicle rather that paying huge amount of bucks for extra service.

It is advisable to do a maintenance check of you cars and regular check up to make sure it will not get stuck in the streets and promote safety to yourself as well as public.

Roger Federer : New French Open 2009 (Roland Garros) Champion


Robin Soderling----------------------------Roger Federer

I just finished watching the French Open 2009 Tennis finals between Roger Federer and Robin Soderling and after the long wait and 4th consecutive Roland Garros Final, Roger Federer finally claimed his first French Open Title defeating Soderling in a 6-1 7-6 6-4 scoreline. Roger Federer dominated from the start of the match with a 6-1 win in the first set, then a tie break in the second which is the most tight part of the match and a nerve wracking third set.


As I watch in the final set and Roger Federer was serving for the match leading 5-4 in the third set. Roger just feel the tension and not serving at his best. Almost lost his serve but the Swiss hold on to his nerves and claim the title he has been chasing in his career. Not only he completed the 4 Grand Slam Titles, he equaled Pete Sampras' 14 Grand Slam Record Title which for me considered Federer the greatest Tennis Player of all time.

What's more is that there is the DirectTV Satellite where you can watch with a variety of channels from its satellite dish, Direct TV offers great digital quality and experience with affordable pricing with its packages, the Directv Satellite TV installation is free and offers a variety of packages that suits its subscribers. I wish there is a Satellite TV in house and given the opportunity to watch high quality movies and shows direct from home.


The good thing about Satellite TV is that compared to other cable providers that uses fiber optic cable, the range of the satellite dish is wider and even though the place is secluded or somewhere in the urban areas, the reception is still clear.
