It's been a long time since I posted about making money online topics, though many are already posting about their ways of making money online. It is not uncommon to see many who started blogging or owning a website having a goal to somehow earn online(we all have bills to pay you know).
Though my post today is not a paid post , I just got to share this to everyone. This program really helped me earn online. Honestly though this will not entirely replace my current salary, it still nice to earn some by posting articles. Their program really pays(that's for sure) and if you have a good blog content and like writing(you don't need to be a perfect writer) then you can join the program.
Registration is free and you really got nothing to lose in joining the program.

Another Filipino shows the world that we are not only good and popular in sports(boxing that is) but in humanitarian work as well. If you have seen the news urging us (Filipinos) to vote online for the CNN hero of the Year to the Filipino Efren Peñaflorida Jr for his contributions to the community through a brand of mobile education, or the "pushcart classroom," for urban poor youth.
Peñaflorida, fondly called "Kuya F," was named 2009 CNN Hero of the Year. In his acceptance speech, he said: "Each person has a hidden hero within, you just have to look inside you and search it in your heart, and be the hero to the next one in need." Sophia Dedace file photo "Efren Peñaflorida, who started a ‘pushcart classroom’ in the Philippines to bring education to poor children as an alternative to gang membership, has been named the 2009 CNN Hero of the Year," the world-renowned Cable News Network said in an article posted on its Web site.
The 28-year-old Peñaflorida will receive $100,000 from CNN. The network's top anchor Anderson Cooper announced the winner at the conclusion of the annual awards ceremony.
Earlier, Peñaflorida told GMANews.TV that should he win, he would pledge the prize money to the children that his group, the Dynamic Teen Company, is helping.
In his acceptance speech at the Kodak Theatre in Hollywood, CNN quoted him as saying: "Serve, serve well, serve others above yourself and be happy to serve. As I always tell my co-volunteers... you are the change that you dream as I am the change that I dream and collectively we are the change that this world needs to be."
The taped event will be aired on November 26, CNN said.
Peñaflorida won over nine other "CNN heroes," seven of whom were American. One of them, 20-year-old Jordan Thomas, lost both his legs in a boating accident and set up a foundation that provides prosthetics to poor children who have also lost limbs.
News of Peñaflorida's selection spread briskly among Filipinos through the Internet. One Facebook user, Kristine Fonacier, had recently spent a year as a volunteer in Guyana. "We need all the hope that we can get from our Manny Pacquiaos," Fonacier wrote. "But here Efren Penaflorida has made a name for himself on the global stage not because he's enormously successful or fabulously wealthy, but because he's given his time to 'helping others.' It's such a simple but world-changing idea, and it's high time we Filipinos get behind it."
Last October, CNN opened the online voting for its Top 10 Heroes. Peñaflorida said that being included in the top 10 alone was already an honor. Still, he refused to take credit for the recognition. "If the people vote for me, they are actually voting for the poor kids DTC is teaching and the dedicated volunteers behind this work," he earlier said.
CNN said more than 2.75 million votes were cast during the seven-week online voting. The network, however, did not indicate how many votes Peñaflorida got.
Peñaflorida, who hails from Cavite City in Cavite province Philippines, started the Dynamic Teen Company in 1997.
His group used “Kariton Klassrooms" or mobile pushcarts to reach out and teach underprivileged children [See: A CNN hero started with a pushcart full of hopes].
The DTC has now over 2,000 members teaching basic reading and writing, and even personal hygiene to marginalized children in slum areas in Cavite using pushcarts filled with books, pens, tables and chairs.

I don't if everyone seen and heard the news about the record breaking 7th weight division win by the pambansang kamao Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao, expecting that it would be a smooth sailing until the recent video that is circulating the internet by storm. It is seen that Manny Pacquiao was spotted in his car with an unknown woman(or should I say someone already mention by other sites) after guesting in the Jimmy Kimmel Live. And is getting really obvious after seeing Jinky Pacquiao cried in the mass when the priest preached about love and family.
Well, if it isn't what most people want to see, it is not only in the Philippines that the issue/scandal is rampant but also in other countries as well. It is just to show that Manny Pacquiao is a international icon and known not only in the Philippines but in the whole world.
I wonder what would the other people would say about the issue, especially with the boxers whom he defeater, I know it's non of our business but hey, someone has got to say something. Maybe someone would say it is karma, or just a midlife crisis thing, well that what makes it interesting and also a good topic to talk(not really respectful anyway) but that's what keeps it interesting not only in the ring but the outside as well.

It still amazes me until now how unexpected things are happening and still doesn't really stop at one point or another in our lives. Things you thought that you know already and conditions that you are not aware of until recently. right.. that's what happened a couple of weeks ago.
Thinking that it was an ordinary day in the medical examination, after the annual medical examination I was told by my HR to go back and take the x-ray again because they didn't get a clear result.so, I wasn't really expecting anything wrong, so I went back the other week, then there when while I was in the waiting area for the x-ray, the doctor asked me if I have a "dextrocardia"(I still have no idea what it was), then the I remembered they mention of having one in my previous x-ray results but it was this time they made it clear about the condition.
Dextrocardia is a congenital defect in which the heart is situated on the right side of the body
Dextrocardia situs inversus refers to the heart being a mirror image situated on the right side. For all visceral organs to be mirrored, the correct term is dextrocardia situs inversus totalis.
Dextrocardia is believed to occur in approximately 1 in 12,000 people, while one of 30 of these will have situs inversus. Totalis occurs in approximately 1 in 5,000 of dextrocardia situs inversus.
I immediately asked the doctor."Is it normal", she said "no, your abnormal(in a not serious tone), your unique, in fact your a mutant,joke only(smiles)". In fact I wasn't really smiling at that time knowing that I have this type of condition, I was thinking how could this happen and not knowing it all this time. Though the doctor said that I am normal in all aspects, its just that it is really a rare condition, In fact, I am the first patient in the clinic to have one said by the radiologist technician(don't know if its the right term).
Though I am still amaze really to have this condition I mean having a mirror image of heart does mean something, or is it really sign or symbol..it really doesn't matter, the thing is that I am still glad to live a normal as it is and having this type of condition of living my life to the fullest.
