We are all different but despite of that simple truth, people can co-exist with each other in a very harmonious way. Gays are noted to add excitement and fun to a group but it’s not enough to just laugh with them. They need to live with their own rights, be protected just like any other man or woman and be accepted to a community as they are. Out and Proud is definitely a good educational medium for the society to learn about this exceptional gender! GMA is so brave to initiate this.

UN Campaigned for Cost-Effective Healthy Diet

 
welcome By: Elena Grace Flores
The United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization or FAO is advocating on promoting healthy diet utilizing natural produce that can’t do any harm to humans and the environment when utilizing and processing them. However, it is common perception that it’s expensive to eat well – but it’s really not the case. It’s just a matter of educating people that that healthy stuff even found in our own backyard can look and taste good.

Since fast food advertisements are rampant these days, advocates must use visual strategies promoting healthy eating. Salads should look good to entice for example. Mixed of vegetables with bits of lean meat should be appetizing to see just like the crunchy fried chicken on TV. If the mentality of the general public changes for the better, spending on diet-related ailments which is 75% of the overall healthcare expenses will be minimized according to CDC. Not only that, greenhouses gasses contributors will be 24% less without the destructive farming techniques.

In 2050 when the world population is predicted to reach 9.3 billion by the United Nations, at least 3 billion more people will be competing with the resources available since the world population currently is at 7 billion. Therefore, further campaigns are needed for this project. If each responsible individual helps in advocating for this health cause – educating the rest of the population on healthy eating, this will not be a problem. On that note, we leave you with this question. In your own capacity, how can you promote cost-effective healthy diet that is not only sustainable for a long period of time but also environmentally-friendly?

Sometimes ignorance can really put us in big trouble – despite thinking that we are right. Take note of this owner who demanded for a DENR permit to cut her ornamental trees upon the petition of the village’s homeowners’ association – since she planted the trees many years back on the foot path itself and within reach to the electricity cables. She should be advised that planting trees on these utility areas are allowed only if the garden is 3 feet away from them. Read this legal document:
