Family Malfunction?

It may be true that there are crime syndicates masterminding the abduction of children in Manila for some gruesome reasons – but they will not be that successful if some Filipinos have not lost their family values. Yes, we can blame it to poverty but note that, it happens because of our own doings! Why make more babies when you can’t even take care of one? The RH bill was passed to educate people on family planning methods but a major religious group took it as anti Christ and senators who voted for this policy have been named Team Patay or Death Team! We’ll this case is a solid proof of ignorance despite living during the computer era:

Good Samaritans return lost QC boy

By: 

John Gabriel was the latest on the growing list of young children who had been reported missing—some allegedly abducted—in the metropolis over the past few weeks, prompting speculations that a human trafficking or an “organ-harvesting” syndicate was prowling the streets. Police have allayed such fears but nevertheless formed Task Force Sagip Angel to intensify the search and look for any pattern. http://newsinfo.inquirer.net/389411/good-samaritans-return-lost-qc-boy



Prior to this, another young boy was found dead after disappearing for more than 2 weeks just beneath the creek of the nearby property. At 4 years old, he could have easily fall off from the elevated land down to the bottom of the creek fracturing his skull. Now, after discovering the decomposing body separated from its extremities by neighbors, his aunt who happened to burn the trash near the location – was suspected by some of the family members to have something to do with the killing. When will we realize that it is a clear sign of ailing parental abilities instead of looking for someone to blame for our misfortunes?. It is a huge social problem when there are parents who have no choice but to leave their fragile offspring in the care of aging grand parents that cannot cope with the energy of the child – thus leaving him prone to accidents!

Social Media Preparation After Death

English: YOKOSUKA, Japan (Nov. 24, 2009) Chief Mass Communication Specialist Palmer Pinckney makes updates to the official U.S. 7th Fleet Facebook social media site. U.S. 7th Fleet began using social media in the Spring of 2009 to promote interaction with the people who have an interest in the U.S. Navy.

I’m sure, like me you also have some friends who recently died or passed away in the past. We are so used to getting their Facebook updates everyday that you can’t help but wondering what will happen to their social media accounts when they’re gone – or what will happen to ours when our time has come? Here’s what Google has in store for that dilemma:

Google Death: A Tool to Take Care of Your Gmail When You’re Gone

By: Rebecca J. Rosen

But for future generations, those quotidian texts won’t exist in a physical form but in digital files — emails, electronic calendars, even maybe some grocery or party-lists filed away in Google Drive. The question isn’t so much whether we are creating these records but whether anyone in the future will have access to them, locked away behind our passwords (and perhaps our 2-step notification process too). http://www.theatlantic.com/technology/archive/2013/04/google-death-a-tool-to-take-care-of-your-gmail-when-youre-gone/274934/



Let’s face it – we will all die and it is a good thing that our loved ones whom we trust can dig some parts of our precious lives through these digital files. I am sure this would console the surviving friends and relatives in a very personal way despite the technological assistance in making this possible. I bet, this is just as therapeutic as going through all the belongings left behind. So, you know what to do!

Margaret Thatcher Did Not Please Everybody

The Iron Lady’s recent death from stroke triggered some mixed feelings contrary to the usual overall mourning when a popular former leader dies. Margaret Thatcher – who was also known to the world as the first ever woman Prime Minister certainly did not please everybody. Although she has led Great Britain well according to Conservative Prime Minister Cameron – a liberty and freedom champion said, Barrack Obama, President of the United States various groups are actually celebrating her death – and marked her demise as the end of a tyrant ex-head. Like the street parties based on this announcement:

Woman behind street parties to ‘celebrate’ death of Margaret Thatcher named

 

By: Josie Ensor, and Claire Carter

Ms Blythe has been rallying fellow protesters through a group on Facebook she has set up called The Witch is Dead, which has more than 5,000 members and calls for “demonstrations of disapproval” across the country. A number of places listed on the site were locations of riots and demonstrations that took place on Monday, including Bristol city centre and George Square in Glasgow. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/margaret-thatcher/9984646/Woman-behind-street-parties-to-celebrate-death-of-Margaret-Thatcher-named.html



Despite what other people might think, Margaret Thatcher would go down to history as the very effective peacetime Prime Minister of her country and a great contributor to the world’s welfare. She is already a legend in her own rights with a very long list of achievements -whether they like it or not. However, they are free to show their sentiments despite being so bitter about her. Hoping that someday, they will learn to forgive in their hearts if she happened to hurt them because of the way she was. At least, she has done exceptional things for the majority of her people. May she rest in peace…

Why Use Online Bill Pay?

By: TopTenReviews Contributor

In 2004, less than 20% of Internet users were accessing online banking services. That percentage was expected to grow to at least 33% by this year—still only a fraction of all U.S. Internet users. Nevertheless, people are catching on. The Bank of America has tripled its business customers using online banking since 2002, and with the increased promotion of online banking services by banks themselves, online banking is gaining momentum. http://bill-paying-services-review.toptenreviews.com/why-use-online-bill-pay.html

You can actually make sure that you are always up to date when paying your bills when you enroll them to the online services provided by the suppliers. Even if you are working abroad, you can still manage your finances back home by using this method. This will also ensure that you are not a burden to others and safe from disputes when the trusted person appointed for this purpose does not do his or her part as agreed with you.  Cut out the stress – do it online!

How Should the World Treat the North Korean Crisis?

War break outs seem to be rampant these days – but the most serious move against the United States and South Korea is North Korea’s nuclear threat. Despite being directed to the two countries only, the world will be affected because its radiation effects are airborne – so, the damages can reach other neighboring countries and beyond. People will be killed, birth defects can ruin the whole generation and physical damages will be immeasurable. This should not be taken lightly although aggressiveness can only trigger the anger of North Korea. UK’s Foreign Secretary Hague has this to say:

North Korea: UK’s Hague calls for calm amid tensions

By: BBC News

British Foreign Secretary William Hague has called for calm over the North Korean crisis. Despite the “paranoid rhetoric” from Pyongyang, it was important to remain “firm and united,” he, said warning of the dangers of a “miscalculation” by North Korea. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-22056797



Every leaders of relevant countries must be united so as to prevent making the wrong move. Damages can never be undone – so, this is the right time to call on the experts in war as well as the peace makers and see if North Korea can be pacified and get into serious talks as per their intentions or quest for that matter. No country will go for war if they are not taken for granted. What could they be fighting for?
