Best Endorsers

As I puff on my macanudo cigar, I wonder what it would be like for tobacco companies to have Fidel Castro or Che Guevarra as endorsers. The two names are so closely associated with cigars that having them to pose for any company’s ad is a surefire way to send sales and profits going up the roof or even beyond. Unfortunately, that may never happen anymore.

International Language

The Chinese in all its arrogance, continuously sent ships in the disputed islands and harassed the Philippine fishermen and inferior Navy. However, as soon as the American vessels came, they all left. Diplomacy, perhaps, is not the language that everyone understands. The correct language, I think, is force.

It never fails to get things done.


Ableton Live!

I have a lawyer friend who was talking about some of his musical compositions. I found his profession and talent for music quite difficult to reconcile until I found out that there’s this software called ableton live 8 that allows people to create, produce and perform music. Because of that, one need not be skilled in any instrument and still be able to create entire compositions.



Yes, it's almost a large scale outbreak with more than 100 people in China getting infected and a handful of deaths. I don't really know how an outbreak is officially defined but I am almost sure that the word is something that most governments would use only at the last moment.

Why? It is because an outbreak or an epidemic would mean close scrutiny of people traveling in and out of the infected area. In extreme cases, an epidemic or outbreak also means a quarantine which would surely have a negative effect on the economy.


Why watch at all?

I was watching reruns of horror movies like “The Ring” when my daughter asked me if I have rechargeable batteries for my flashlight. I wondered why she asked that question but she reminded me that though she likes watching scary films, she actually ends up being afraid of her own shadow for a few days after watching a good one. 

This seems like a funny sequel to a horror movie. Ha Ha Ha!

Kim Jung Ohn?

"Mr. Krushchev said we will bury you I don't subscribe to this point of view It would be such an ignorant thing to do If the Russians love their children too." 

 It used to be the US of A against the Russians in the world stage. Now, there's this NoKor leader who seems to have replaced the rhetorical soviets. The guy has just threatened to envelope a SoKor village in a sea of flames and the South Korean leadership is not taking the threat lightly. Let's see what will happen.


Protect your mobile phones

One good way for citizens to protect themselves from domestic terrorists is to install ESET Mobile Security made easy to their mobile phones. Potential kidnappers and internet thieves will find it very difficult if not impossible to hack passwords and pins to people’s ATM cards when such kind of protection is installed. I think the price of the protection software is reasonable considering the value that it gives to the customers.

Ransoms Finance Terrorism

From the Abu Sayaff to the Al Qaeda, ransoms that ran up to hundreds of millions of dollars are financing bigger and better terrorism activities. In the Philippines, authorities once seized terrorist speedboats that could outrun any of the Philippine Coast Guards vessels. In Mali, a former US diplomat claims that $15 million in ransom paid by France finances Al Qaeda's current activity. The terror group became so powerful that it took the intervention of France and neighboring countries to save the country from getting overrun.

Don't pay ransoms-- NEVER!


Ibanez Guitars

I want my daughter to get an ibanez from guitar center so that she can start learning how to play the instrument. She has some basic piano skills already but now, she wants to transition into the guitar. Of course, the guitar is a very classy instrument and very handy compared to the piano. I therefore think that she should study the instrument and become good at it.

Another Bus rape in India

In India, it seems that at least a few men have not heard the outcry over the gang rape of a young woman who later died. That is because the same modus operandi was repeated by the same number of people. A lady by her lonesome, boarded a bus at night and the driver and conductor drove her to an abandoned building where they were joined by 4 more men. The lady was gang raped repeatedly and was let off the following morning.

Like the prior rape incident, the rapists were caught and I hope that they too will suffer the backlash brought about by the first case.

Diet Plates

Those of us who are on diet can benefit a lot from the use of portion control plates. The beautifully decorated plates informs people just exactly how much food they are about to eat or have just consumed. Of course, the use of the plates will not guarantee a weight loss. The plates will not stop people from getting 2nd, 3rd or 4th servings!

France on Alert!

The French military launched a rescue mission in Somalia and the president has admitted its failure. Jets bombarded Somalian pirate positions while commandos stormed the pirates' lair. Official accounts say that the hostage died together with a commando while another soldier is missing.

The French military also attacked Islamic rebels in Mali to help the government. As a a result, the police is ever vigilant back home due to fears of suicide bombings.
