Got A New Cellphone - MyPhone B88 Duo

Yes, earlier this afternoon, while my husband, our daughter and I were strolling inside the mall, out of nowhere, we decided, actually, I decided to get a new "functional" cellphone that is much cheaper but considerately durable.

After some dilly dallying, I decided to buy the cheap Myphone B88 Duo. This functional phone costs only P888.00 and is already a dual sim/dual standby phone, which I certainly needed. You know, I have been complaining lately about my

A Tiring But Fulfilling Way To End My Summer

Summer time has officially ended, at least here in the Philippines. I guess most of you is still wishing that it hasn't yet and that the rain will stop, especially that a Typhoon has now entered the Philippine Area of Responsibility. Wait, I'm not here to talk about the weather, I'm here to share about the way my summer has ended.

In my other blog, I have posted about my Memorable Summer Time, last May 23rd. I guess if you have read it, you'll know why it was memorable. Now, since it's 2nd of June, I would like to share how I spent the last week of my summer vacation.

Last Monday and Tuesday, May 28-29, 2012, I was in Iloilo City for a

Phillip Phillips: White Guy With Guitar

"American Idol" Phillip Phillips is the new White Guy With Guitar (WGWG). The Americal Idol Season 11 Grand Champion, Phillip Phillips has been the talk of the town since it was announced earlier today that he won the AI (American Idol) while Jessica Sanchez got the 2nd place.

New terms or words have sprouted just like this WGWG thing. At first, when I encountered this acronym, I got confused and curious at the same time of what does it really mean. I was trying to searched for the meaning online when I heard over from a news in the TV the term, which means, White Guy With Guitar. 

WGWG came because previous winners of American Idol are also male and they, too plays guitar, just like Kris Allem and Adam Lambert.

Anyway, I miss watching Chaka Khan perform during the season finale as many have said that she performed well and that her voice is still as powerful as ever.

I'm Glad I'm a Blogger!

Last first week of April, an online friend told me that a certain online company is giving away free eye glasses (prescription and reading) and sunglasses to all qualified bloggers. At first, I doubted it to be true because online scam has been everywhere lately. I asked my friend if she has tried it and she said she's also planning to and added that some of her friends, who are also bloggers, like us, have applied and they have received their eyeglasses, absolutely FREE!

I asked for the link of that company to check and yes, indeed, they are having that campaign. In exchange for the free prescription/rx, reading or sunglasses, bloggers are requested to

A Fresh Scoop About Me

Wohoo! Finally, after almost six (6) years, I am now a permanent employee not to mention that I was promoted from Instructor 1 to Associate Professor! Aside from the monetary equivalents of these good news, I am definitely happy and thankful that my sacrifices have all been paid off!

I have experienced several heartaches, hard feelings, conflicts and other negative issues that made me consider to transfer to other schools that tried to "pirate" me and offered me salaries and incentives that are hard to resist. I'm just thankful that, although hard to believe, I did not put money in my top priorities, instead, I was and I am mindful of the students' future if ever I leave them.

Anyway, since I'm "here" now, I will just try to continue what I have done and is still doing, which is to give all my best to help the students graduate, pass the board exam and find a good-paying job. For this is the best reward that I can receive - seeing them succeed in their chosen path.

My New Outlet For Rantings

I would just like to announce that this blog will shift from solely blogging about the latest news to my new outlet for personal rantings. Of course, from time to time, I will post here the latest news, gossips and other interesting scoops that might be of interest to you, too, my dear readers.

Although, I already have my own personal blog, Praning's Shoutout, I still want to express some of my rantings here, since only a few are aware that this blog is also mine, thus, I can express my feelings here without holding back (hopefully), because I don't have to worry that someone close to me will be able to read this.

So in my future posts, please don't be surprised if I'm talking about my personal dilemmas, issues and that sort of things, ok?

Zuckerberg Plays Host in New Facebook IPO

Mark Zuckerberg,  the CEO of  the famous social network, Facebook, now serves as the company's staple in a new video that Facebook posted in the run-up to its initial public offering (IPO).
According to PCMag.com, "The video is part of Facebook's IPO road show, a traditional pre-IPO presentation a company offers potential investors to tell the company's story and explain why it is a good investment. The 30-minute video starts out with Facebook CFO David Ebersman, who then introduces our host, Zuckerberg, who in turn passes the video baton to other company leaders such as Chris Cox, vice president of product, and COO Sheryl Sandberg.
Sitting in the company's Silicon Valley offices and speaking over the kind of optimistic, folksy music score we've become accustomed to in Apple and Google product videos, Zuckerberg describes the beginning of Facebook, from the early idea of photo uploads to the more recent Timeline feature."

Can You Get Mad Cow Disease From Milk?

Many people is still not aware of what is really a mad cow disease or are asking if we can get mad cow disease from a cow's milk. To give some information about mad cow disease, here's an article from www.motherjones.com:
USDA- authority mandated testing turned up a downed California dairy cow that was infected with bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE), also known as mad cow disease, the agency announced Tuesday. According to an exec with the rendering plant where the poor beast ended up, it was chosen for testing completely at random, having shown "no signs" of disease.
The scenario suggests that relatively recently, a BSE-infected cow was producing milk for public consumption. According to the USDA, there's nothing to worry about. The agency's chief veterinary officer, John Clifford, released a statement Tuesday declaring that the the the cow in question had "atypical BSE, a very rare form of the disease not generally associated with an animal consuming infected feed." He added that "milk does not transmit BSE."
