Every new year calls for a life-changing invites. If the past years has brought you more turmoil in your attitude that you did something bad or unlucky, then I am sure you are thinking of making lists of change as your New Year's Resolution.

New Year's Resolution as what I view it is a source of evaluation to further make progress out from the past bad experience or actions that you did that you promise not to do it again. If that is a regretful chances of not making such choice the last year, you make resolution that you can make it this coming 2013.

New Year's Resolution are/is:

An assessment of your attitude
If you are not in modulate tone for the last years, then it is best to keep the record of keeping a promise to assess yourself in changing the bad habit that you have. In the like manner while you are assessing yourself, you will keep the place of gaining people's trust and friendship again. In this manner, it will heighten the relationship more towards others.

An evaluation of how you behave
Different situation calls for various reactions. That is of course, natural. But what is unnatural is when you hurt someone. Evaluating oneself for progress and development of making that promise to change for the better and achieve more in 2013 is a good start of the year. In this manner, you know where to place yourself in the space of life. You will be able to side which are you going to cling to and to where are you going to step out of the way. It gives you the right directions as you make intelligible answers to every situations that needs thorough actions.

A direction for a better life
Though the kind of promise that you have to personally met in the coming year, you are giving direction and focus of your success. You are the ones formulating the kind of agenda in your life that leads to good aura. It makes you positive and hopeful in the end. It will not make you stagnant and left behind. Through the kind of direction that you set in for you life, it will further give meaning to what you really aspire to do in life. You will be traveling to the right choices and disciplining yourself to neglect the unhelpful ones.

A promise to do
Having New Year's Resolution is like a promise to do. It is not faking nor just joking around. It is a set of truths that you will need to do and stand for it because you are the ones wanting to make a positive chance in your life. If the past year has brought you turmoil and so many mistake in your choice of actions, then, through your resolution, you are making trust to yourself and building them in a way of standing and making clear to do what you intend to do and promise. It is not just for words and merely words alone. It is a promise that needs to be realized not just in mouths but in deeds.

A measure to have a positive outlook in life
The kind of evaluation that you can get out from having New Year's resolution in your hands and the truth that you do with it makes you point yourself into a positive looks at any angles of life. You will face the world light and when there are challenges, you will not fear nor worry about them because you are feeling true in yourself that you can have all the right truth out from what you really want to do. And there is the kind of inner trust that makes you positively achieve more and if not, make things in the right way and right choices out from the regrets that you have last year.

New Year's resolution stores lots for many and this list of yourself is a kind of a way that defines the meaning of your life. It takes discipline, truthfulness and hope to do them.

People react differently to situations and when it comes to questioning, they do have various ways of answering them.

Today, I have learned something which adds up to my maturity - "How to answer questions wonderfully." Indeed, there are numerous questions that people are asking everyday. In this manner, it is so because only when we ask, we know. And it is a good attitude of asking questions in the right manner and right time and when the act is so necessary to do.

I was in quite guilt because I do know that I should directly get into the right answer when my friend ask me about something. Then, it leads me thinking when she does answer her question and I was like, "Oh! That is what I am thinking about that should come out from my mouth."  I was just so meticulously watching that if I say it frankly out from what she is questioning me about, maybe I will hurt her or maybe when I answer her directly in that matter, maybe she will feel bad about me.

There are some instances when attacking to answer questions we need to pose and think more deeply that when we say what we mean, maybe it will be the cause of arguments or misunderstanding among friends or people. That is why, I am careful about answering questions especially when the case seem so serious and the ones questioning is asking a very deep kind of question that he needs to wait for serous answer that is coming from the real fact. The only case is, when the fact really hurts. Now, it is going to be her case to analyze and deeply understand the situation if that is the case maybe.

I am like looking to what it means when one is asking. I will not directly bump into attacking answers that might pose neglect, pose reject or leave scars in every heart. I always look into the person and when I feel that he is deserving to have my answer, than that is the time that I pose to have my piece.

Various individuals from all races of life display numerous attitudes and the only way to dwell in their personalities is how you should deal dealing them.

Every special occasion, I get too emotional. I can't stop myself feeling the season's invite of deeply empathizing the rhythm of the occasion.

This season reminds me of this song which I always repeat playing. It is from Faith Hill.
 
 "Where Are You Christmas"

Where are you Christmas
Why can't I find you
Why have you gone away
Where is the laughter
You used to bring me
Why can't I hear music play

My world is changing
I'm rearranging
Does that mean Christmas changes too

Where are you Christmas
Do you remember
The one you used to know
I'm not the same one
See what the time's done
Is that why you have let me go

Christmas is here
Everywhere, oh
Christmas is here
If you care, oh

If there is love in your heart and your mind
You will feel like Christmas all the time

I feel you Christmas
I know I've found you
You never fade away
The joy of Christmas
Stays here inside us
Fills each and every heart with love

Where are you Christmas
Fill your heart with love

The spirit of Christmas circles on giving. As most of the people said that Christmas is the time to share our love and one way of showing the spirit of giving is through surprising everyone with a gift.

Indeed, Christmas calls for gift-giving. Gifts don't mean physically a thing, but rather it means more than a thing, the attitude of sharing one's love not just in physically seeing the material, but it can be felt in the heart.

There are ways for showing how much you really care giving your gift of love and it is not just in Christmas but it can be shared all throughout your entire life.

Through the heart that surely doesn't measure a thing, one can embrace to spread love out from what the heart says. It is boundless. It is ever-giving and when the heart shares, it is lifetime and meaningful. But mostly, when Christmas comes, physical presence of materials is the dominant manifestation of expressing how much one gives and to whom that thing shall be given.

But you know, the true meaning of Christmas lies in every heart. That is why, it is very necessary to give gifts during Christmas. Remember, everyday is a Christmas day and everyday needs you to give the kind of gift what your heart desires.

Is this the revelation that people are not having faith in God.

It is quite awkward to think that many are worried about this day for it is the end of the world. If this day is the end, is it really to be worried of?

There is no one who can exactly tell when is the end of the world except the Father. Even Jesus Christ doesn't know when is the Judgement Day. It is only God the Father knows when the world is going to terminate.

How weird people think that this day is the end of the world. Do they don't have God in their hearts? Are they that kind of persons right now who doesn't have faith?

For me, I offer my life to God and I know even when the coming of the end of the world, I cling to His side in prayer and trust. God will never leave the people in misery and He will never inflict pain in every spirit. He is a good God and a merciful One.

And He is the only one who knows!

In every profession nor at all actions, ethics guards to keep one's behavior in a modulate, proper way of dealing with the limits and the appropriate actions one is expected to show to the public.

Why study Ethics?

The most that keeps the moral of one's action is safeguarded with the spirit that Ethics do share to each and everyone. Of course, people are not aware of what to do when dealing with the right conduct and decorum at all times in handling with people and how one keeps to preserve moral actions. Because of ethics, people are enlighten of their roles and responsibilities as what profession they belong, what people should think of their actions and how they are going to deal with situations that would not supersede going into the wrong path. The kind of life that people will surely absorb to do is to keep that Ethics forms a person with dignity, pride and respect. If these three important elements of a person is discarded, then we can say that there is definitely something wrong.

Ethics leads a life with direction. It doesn't lead one to go through the wrong path for Ethics always adheres to embrace the value of a person. It doesn't make a person in shame nor it doesn't ruin the person's future. All it does is for the betterment of the lives of the people that they should vest to bring and uphold to instill in their personalities the kind of person that Ethics molds them to be.

We can't deny the fact that there are people who doesn't know the proper Ethics. Even if they are professional, some can't remember to implant in themselves what really is the meaning of their personality in the field of their lives, in the field of their profession.

Now, Ethics changes the wrongdoings into a possibility that transform lives to the right, moral way. In every action, a person is aware and is reminded that what he should always think and do is for the betterment of everyone, his family, the others, his country and for himself. A person who doesn't try to keep one's value through his ethics is a person who never want to make a difference out of his life. Sometimes pride would always demands to make our intentions inappropriate, but the power of Ethics always knocks one's conscience to do what is morally good and neglect to inflict pain towards other people.

It is injustice! That is what I have felt now.

I have been writing online for all my life since 2008 and now, there is a lot of works that I have accomplished from the well-known paying site that I "trust", (but not I don't).

The company should see how my efforts in working with those write-ups are and how I devote my hectic time to insert the task in order that I could accomplished them. How could I expect them to depart that way?

Before, I gain a good pay. They paid on-time and even promptly. That I enjoy for 3 years. But now, what happen? It seems that they are such a big mess!

Those that they should be paid for, those assignments that I have accomplished are reaching the overdue of payments. They should pay me last September! Oh my! They just don't know that I find extra efforts to work online in order to at least help the needs here at home. That even with a little amount that they are paying, it can already help sustain the needs somehow.

I would like to say the site but I am pitiful to them. I hope that they will be able to understand and realize that all of those who are working online are working so hard to earn with just a little amount because everyone has a purpose why they need to have to.

Times like this especially during the All Soul's Day, I always think about my mother.

I miss her so much. Going to the cemetery to visit her tomb is such a wonderful thing to do because I am like being with her in the actual place where she is buried and I know that she is really there. I can feel like the wind is reflecting me to feel that she is just really there.

I miss my mother so much! She died last June 24, 2004 of a cancer. It was such a tragic experience for me to have lost such a very beautiful and wonderful person in my life, but I know that she is already happy in Heaven with the Lord. It is just that in times like this, it always brings me back to the memories of her in my past when she was still alive.

I miss you Mama!

It is really a tragic experience for all of us here in America even though we are far from the part of New York and its surrounding areas where "Sandy" blew its inflictions. I know that in times like this, it is so hard to think that the damage that "Sandy" brought has turned many lives at stake. It seems that it is so hard to stand again and rebuild the lost possessions that the people are building.

I have seen on television how extremely the storm blows everything. It caused a lot of distraction and I was on one corner praying and always hoping that everyone will be okay. I can't imagine how it really caused lots of distractions. I have seen people struggling to find better shelter and left their beautiful houses and then in all of a sudden it was all shattered and devastated. It pains me a lot to have felt them being like that.

There is no surest way to stop everything when natural disasters come to a country for no human beings can impede to cease its infliction. But the after-cause that left the people behind. It is so tragically demoralizing. Everything is really a big mess!

But nevertheless, I know that God always blesses America. I know that for sure that in every struggle, I know the Lord will always provide. Help will come and regaining to rebuild their houses and put back their shattered lives and turn everything fine, I know that it will seek its way out.

God will always bless America!

Art Work

I have seen the art works of students who are joining the art work competition and I tell you, the crafts that they are making are indeed extraordinarily wonderful and amazing. I have seen this art work in a glass that was stocked together. It was form like a mountain with the formation of the glass with the others tall and short. It is finely surrounded like a fence using the indigenous materials.


I am thinking of sharing this to the crowds so that whenever you want to make out your mind in exploring to go beyond the limits of your imagination and would like to portray a kind of craft that extraordinarily lifts you to decide to make one, then this idea is a best example. You may as well enhance or modify the kind of structure in your own way but the good thing is that glasses can be made wonderfully in variety of art works. This one is just another example out of it.

            Who are we? Why were we here? Why do we exist? Why were we created? What are God’s plans why he created man?
            These are some of the questions which search me to look for answers based on God’s purpose of creating man on Earth. I can view my explanation based on the following:

1. Man as a steward over God’s creation.
            In Genesis 1:26, it was clearly stated that God made man in His image and likeness to let him rule over his creations on earth. One of the purpose of man is to be a good steward of all things that are created by God, those things both living and non-living. The kind of task that God sets on man are regarded him as superior in rank because to “take over” means that man has the capacity to rule. He is a leader. He has a distinct characteristic which is not present in animals, the kind of power that dominates to lead. In this sense, God puts responsibility in him. Man’s works are always paired with responsibility and accountability, a unique trust that is always imprinted in man’s spirit as human beings which God put man the center of his creation in order to be the steward of all things that he has created. 

2. God created man in His image and likeness, He created him: male and female. (Gen. 1: 26-27)
            God made man to be like Him. In fact, man is the most important creature among all the creatures that God made for only the man was created in the image of God. The other living creatures like the dog, cat, rabbit, microbes, etc. are not the replica of God’s image. Humans are specially crafted the way God wanted it to be. God and man are of the same image that is God should look like us. Because man is created “in His image”, it clearly means that God created the soul of man in His image. Here, the physical form of man is not what has given more emphasis of His image but rather the soul of man which reflects God’s image. In this manner, man was made by God and not by himself.

3. God’s purpose of the creation of man is to serve the Lord with gladness. 

            It was stated in 1 Cor. 15:32, “Serve the Lord with gladness; Come before His presence with singing. Know that the Lord, He is God. It is He who has made us, and not we ourselves. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture.”
            Man is not created not for the sake to eat, drink and be merry. He serves the Lord in worship, to acknowledge Him that the Lord is God. In the clear view, man was created by God to adore and worship Him, for man to know that it was God who made him in like manner it fulfills the very purpose of man’s existence – to know and adore God. Thus, as God became man, He sets an example for us to follow. Knowing God, knowing who we are and understanding our relationship with God will make us realize our obligation to serve Him. This is our responsibility.

4. Man inherits the kingdom.
            In the teaching of Luke 12: 32, it says, “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the Kingdom.”
            Man has given by God all the chances to be rich by becoming God’s joint-heir in all His creations. God made the earth not completely furnished but God lets the people creatively work in order to fill, improve and to make beautiful man’s creations out from His land. On the other hand, God is choosing groups of people, making them righteous and holy so that they can live with Him forever. All of them will inherit the kingdom of God. 

5. Man has a body. God created the body from the dust to the earth and it will return to the dust.
            Gen. 2: 7 says, “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground.” When man’s life ends and of course, that is the end of the body and we are dead. But because man has a body, man’s soul continues to live and will never die. But when man dies, he will return to the dust.
5. God made the world so that there could be a space where He might communicate His love, and from which the response of love might come back to him.
            In order for God to communicate His love, He made some beings capable of loving in return had to exist. They were invited to respond other wise if there could not respond, there could be no true and free love. Thus, the persons are made by God with intelligence, will and a space which to decide what he will be. 

6. God created man to take dominion over His creations.
            I can connote this of the existence of Adam and Eve. Adam was to rule, Eve had to rule with Him. Both had to rule together. Dominating the earth needs Adam and Eve. Eve, because she was a part of Adam’s very being, completed Adam which in the like manner, both should take dominion over God’s creation. 

7. God gave man a mind (spirit), heart (emotions) and will (freedom of choice).
            God gave man a mind capable of knowing God and thinking as God thinks. God gave man such a powerful mind because He planned for man is to have close fellowship with Him. God has given to man a spirit that has the possibility of enjoying a meaningful relationship with the Living God.
            God placed a heart in the soul of man when He created him in His image. God gave man a heart so that he could love God. God gave the first man the capacity to feel the emotions that God Himself feels.
            God gave the man free choices to choose between right and wrong. The very purpose why He lets this so because of His great love to man that He understands to respect man’s decision, to love with it or learn from them. 

8. God made man to subdue the earth and multiply.
            God made man in order to fill the earth filled with humans. Through marriage, reproduction and love, the creation of human beings spread around the world. The existence of millions of people here on earth is manifestation of God’s purpose of creating man numerously. This freely indicates that God’s love is overflowing. 

9. God made man to keep His promise of love and forgiveness.
            God died in the cross not for something else, not for a sort of nothingness but for a great sacrifice of saving man’s sinfulness and free them from punishments. God made this in order to fulfill His promise of great love for man to realize that He is God. The way He lets Himself be crucified is His way of love in order to make known His big forgiveness. 

10. God made Himself man.
            God made man in His image and likeness and in order to manifest Himself as one of us, He was born into the world with Joseph, His father and Mary, His mother through the Holy Spirit. In this manner, the very purpose why God lets man to live is in order to manifest and make His existence in the purpose of dwelling into this world. He, made Himself presence in the world full of man in order to mean the purpose of man’s being.

I thought at first that it is just a sort of a mosquito bite, but I was wrong. It turned out to be a very dangerous site for the spread of a kind of skin infection.

Seeing David suffering from boil pains me a lot as a mother. It is growing. It produces a lot of pus and I was always worried about his condition because he is sick. I went to the doctor just this morning and the physician told me that he got it from a kind of bacteria which can be found anywhere in a dirty place.

Our house is not dirty. I can assure of that. But maybe the environment cause transmission of the disease because he is schooling and I don't know if the place in school is safe for him. What I do know is that the school provides them with the materials, all complete. I just can't expect that he is having boil.

It all started with a scratch of the part which marks the bite of the mosquito. And I was totally in shocked because the small part grows bigger and has liquid part on it. There is something like an "eye" that is the port of entry of the bacteria and they said that when it ruptures, all those pus will go away from the said "eye" part.

I am totally worried because David has a high fever. Even though he eats a lot but the main thing that concerns me is that when that pus will burst out from his skin.

I pity a lot my son. I hope that the Lord will heal him.

My professor posed this question on his quiz last week and here is my explanation regarding the quote:

It was stated in the Bible that people die and not all can take after-life in Heaven during the Judgement Day of God. There are those who will be thrown in Hell and suffer the never-ending fire of death and there are those who will be happily in the Paradise that God has set for them in Heaven and there are those people who live an everlasting life. The way people shape his wealth for Heaven depends on the good acts he makes for others. Everyone calls to live but there are those who chooses to die.

"How does the concept of Pope Benedict XVI about Eros and Agape grounded on man's substantial union?"

This question was part of our quiz in whom our professor in Philosophy of Human Person (subject) convey to us. Here is my answer:

If Eros, its physicality and Agape, its spirituality are not represented in man, thus they can't never be specified. Man is both body and soul. Man's body is represented by Eros and man's soul is represented by Agape (spirituality). Thus, man is both composed of these two dimensions, Eros and Agape which can never be separated. The union of these two dimensions defines the true nature of man. Eros can't live without Agape and Agape can't live without Eros. They are co-dependent with each other. That is why, marriage is saturated because of the marriage of both body and soul in man.

Once-in-a-lifetime events should not be harsh. They should be celebrated with love and happiness. Just like wedding celebrations that surely always embrace the spirit of how two lovers come to decide to put their greatest love to a vow before God and the people in front of a ceremonial blessing. Of course, with this kind of setting, it takes a sophisticated and quality wedding decorations for first impressions always last not just for the success of the celebration but for the visitors and invited very important persons to feel the rhythm of the wedding celebration.

Indeed, there is nothing more happier and the ever happiest moment in one's life of two lovers falling for love to unite into one. It does clearly proves that in life, there are some events that only marriage that through wedding celebrations can clearly be explained.

With all that has been set up and everyone is ready for the once-in-a-lifetime wedding celebration, then it always calls for the unique, elegant and ever manifested in creative crafts, wedding decorations. This adds more to the kind of celebration that spells like no other.

It has been almost a year now that I stop teaching and I admit that I miss the kind of vocation that I have. Being a teacher is indeed the noblest among all the professions in the world.

Going back to school is another adventure and a discovery. I have meet new faces, new friends, new atmosphere and of course, new teachers in whom I got all the new information in learning about the second course that I take now, Nursing.

It is quite not a familiar type of going inside the room and then, sitting in the corner, waiting for the teacher and in discussions, listen and take down notes. These things I remember doing when I was still in my college years the most. But now, I am not the teacher anymore. I am now the student.

Of spending time to capture all the vital information that I should know about Nursing, I have come to realize that being a student is not easy. Aside from the many assignments, researches, reportings and exam, the 75% quizzes display a huge impact on my grades, and so, I always take time to make it a point that I will not miss to study any of my subjects. Sleepless nights and long hours of study, I lay almost everyday. That is why, pimples are scattering everywhere on my face. Indeed, I can say that I am a student, a real student.

These things that apt me to do because I don't have a choice makes me to really do and exert more efforts everyday. I am aiming to be the best. I don't want to be half-cooked in my learning and knowledge. Nursing has always been my choice of a course and a profession someday that will lead me to love it and be my vocation. That is why, I devote more time to really burn the evening candle just to make sure that I have a good grades and I do pretty well understand what my teachers taught me.

Indeed, school is a lot of fun!

Philosophy is a humorous and fun subject for me because I was able to understand life and everything that defines about man and life. It is an in-depth knowledge that I have because our professor is really an expert in explaining every topic that makes me atone to get to be more interested in his discussion everytime we have my Philosophy class.

"To exist is to stand out."

Man is a being in the world. He is fundamentally related to his body. Man exists both body and soul which makes it fundamental. Through his body, he is exposed to his own existence as a human being.

In this manner, our physicality makes it dominantly the reason that we all exists with body and paired with spirit or soul. This makes us all stand out among any other creatures in this world, making humans the highest regard of man's existence in this world.

The only sure way to build understanding in everything that you read is to go over the most important thing - Getting the Main Idea. It does not take an expert to do this but it all boils to the kind of determination and technique in determining which is the main idea.

Before, I am not like good in school for my study habits are that poor. I always get a very low score and I am oftentimes in the lowest rank in school ranking of students. But I am having that chance to improve as I have realized to help myself attain a higher grades in doing the right job in anything that I do, and I find it in Getting the Main Idea.

When you read an article, story or anything that leads your interest in reading, comprehension or to understand is very important so that you will know and learn the most vital information and go over them while not that sure neglecting the flowering part but let them stay as is.

In getting the main idea, you should first read the whole text. And while you have your second reading, jot down the most important thing that talks about the central point of what you have read. You have to go over the topic sentence or the topic alone and them from the topic or topic sentence, stems down the roots of that stem.

You don't have to consider the flowering parts since it will not lead you to a more comprehensive ideas but it will just surely gives you an added information that will not give the most focus point. Try discarding the flowering parts or the unimportant ones. Concentrate more on what is the best and the most vital, the central topic that leads to the main thought of the article.

You will then find out that you have just have the short notes out from what you have gathered. You will then realized that in getting the main idea, you will have a good study habit that perfectly leads you to a high mark. Positively, this technique has helped me a lot in many ways and I don't find it regretful. I was successful because of the strategy and the technique in gettting the most important thing in note taking.

Our teacher in Chemistry told us to think about a kind of Investigatory Project that would help people know about new discoveries that will serve as a big benefit for them. I have come up with the idea of making a useful soap out form a guava plant for people who are prone to acne and other skin problem. Here is the short overview of my study:

Background of the Study
It has been viewed that nowadays people are focusing in herbal plants for natural treatment of any forms of health problems. One of the examples is the guava plant (Psidium Guava Linn). Based on research this plant is good for healing and treating wounds and other skin infections especially acne. For this main reason, the group wants to make soap out of it for we know that it is very effective. Our study refers to a plant that can be made into a bathing soap. We want the people to find treatment on acne that is regarded as the common skin problem especially among young adults.

Statement of the Problem
Guava extract is good for skin. It gives beneficial effect that boils to the answers of the following questions:
What components of guava that makes fight acne?
How effective are these components that it can treat acne?
How this component does work in order to give people’s acne problem a solution?

Hypothesis
Guava leaves is a good treatment for acne.
The guava components are good for skin problem especially for acne.

Significance of the Study
One can make a bathing soap with guava leaves extract for acne. This plant is common to our environment that it is as available as it is also easy to cultivate. It contains many healing components that are good for treating acne.

Scope and Limitation
The study of guava leaves and their extract is very useful. It has the ability to treat, cure, disinfect skin problems and is a capable plant for acne.

Methodology
Materials:
Platform Beam Balance
Beaker
Molder
NaOh (Sodium Hydroxide) 150 ml Solution
800 g of guava leaves
Oil
Water
Stirring Rod
Pot

Decoction of Guava Leaves
You should prepare the 800g leaves of guava. Put it in a basin for washing to remove the dust and some small insects found in leaves. Prepare the pot and pour it with water, then boil it within 15 minutes to get more extract. Get the extract and put it in a beaker. You must get 400 ml of guava leaves extract.

Making of the Soap
Prepare the NaOH 150 ml solution and the oil. The guava leaves extract is also prepared. Mix it with NaOH, oil and the extract between 2-3 minutes by continuous stirring until foamy emulsions will produce and transfer it to the molder. Just be sure that you will not inhale the fumes. Do not touch the NaOH and do not surprise in tremendous heat produce.After placing to the molder, cover it with cloth. Demolding the cloth will be 3 days after.
Applying to Acne:There will be volunteers. Soap the acne, leave it within 3 minutes. Rinse it with water and dry it with a soft towel. Use it within 1 week or 7 days. Observe for skin improvement especially on the disappearance of acne within that week.

Part of the quiz that I had with my Philosophy of Human Person subject is to discuss briefly about what I know about Aristotle's Doctrine of the Mean. Here is my answer:

Aristotle's Doctrine of the Mean simply emphasizes to live life with or in moderation. That one should clearly give love or live life not to the extreme. That persons need to reserve a portion of himself to God. But there is a great question about Aristotle's concept of idea because no one can ever share in moderation especially in loving God, family or friends. That, in this case, we have to rely on the provision of the natural law when we do things. We should do an activity which is in accord to perfect virtue that every human activity is filled with various happiness that defines his absolute being.

Based from what I have taken down during our discussion of our Pharmacology in Nursing class, here are vital information about anti-infective agents that I would like to share.

Anti-infective Agents are drugs that are desinged to act selectively on foreign organisms that have invaded and infected the body of a human host.

Antiobiotics treat bacterial infections.
Antivirals, antifungals and antiprotozoals treat infection caused by protozoa including malaria
Antihelmintics treat infections caused by worms.
Antineoplastics treat cancer disease caused by abnormal cells.

In 1920s the discover of the use of first drug to treat infection was discovered including penicillin.
Paul Ehrlich is a scientist to develop a synthetic chemical effective only against infection, causing the cells not human cells.
In 1935, sulfonamdes was discovered and introduced.

Those anti-infectives which interfere with the biosynthesis of the bacterial cell wall without interfering the host are the penicillin.

Sulfonamides, antimycobacterial and trimethoprim drugs are anti-infectives that prevents the growth and develepment of the bacteria.

Aminoglycosides, macrolides and chloramphenicol are anti-infectives that interfere with the steps involve in protein synthesis.

Fluoroquinolones are anti-infectives that interfere with the DNA synthesis in the cells.
Antifungals and antiprotozoals are anti-infectives that alter the permeability of the cell membrane, allow to leak out, causing the death of cells.

Drugs needs to be checked before it is to be released to the market for people's use. But there are those what we call Controlled Substances which this drugs are with abuse potential which can trigger the health of the people when used.

That is why, Controlled Substances Act of 1970 emphasizes that:
Schedule I (C-I): High abuse potential and no accepted medical use like the heroin, marijuana and LSD.

Schedule II (C-II): High abuse potential with severe dependence liability like the narcotics, amphetamines and barbiturates.

Schedule III (C-III): Less abuse potential than schedule II drugs and moderate dependence liability like the non-barbiturates sedatives, non-amphetamine stimulants and limited amounts of certain narcotics.

Schedule IV (C-IV): Less abuse potential than schedule III and limited dependence liability like some sedatives, anti-anxiety agents and non-narcotics analgesics.

Schedule V (C-V): Limited abuse potential like the narcotics for antitussives or antidiarrheals.

I love Chemistry and I love my professor everytime she teaches us this subject. Before, it doesn't give me much interest learning the lesson but as time goes by, I have learned that Chemistry is an interesting subject. That is why, I will share to you on the things that makes me love most of Chemistry.

Atomic Number
Atoms are composed of identical protons, neutrons and electrons. How then are atoms of one element different from another element? Element are different because they contain different numbers of protons. The "atomic number" of an electron is the number of protons in the nucleus. The number of protons in an atom is equal to the number of electrons. Atomic Number (Z) of an element is the number of protons in the nucleus of each atom of the element.

Mass Number  is the number of protons and neutrons in the nucleus of an isotope.
Complete Symbol of the element, the mass number and the atomic number.

Isotopes
Dalton was wrong about all elements of the same type being identical. Atoms of the same element can have different numbers of neutrons. Thus, different mass numbers. These are called isotopes.

Frederick Soddy (187719) proposed the idea of isotopes in 1912. Isotopes are atoms of the same element having different masses, due to varying numbers of neutrons. Soddy won the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1921 for his work with isotopes and radioactive materials.

Measuring Atomic Mass
Instead of grams, the unit we use is the Atomic Mass Unit (amu). It is defined as 1/12 the mass of carbon 12 atom. Each isotope has its own atomic mass, thus we determine the average from percent abundance.

To Calculate the Average Mass
Multiply the atomic mass of each isotope by its percent abundance, then add the results. If not told otherwise,  the mass of the isotope is expressed in atomic mass units (amu).

My professor in Philosophy had already discussed some parts of the topic, "Freedom". Here are some that I would also like to share based from what I have taken down notes.

Freedom - exquisite part of human existence.
1. Knowledge is the verdant of human acts.
2. Freedom is the natural gift.
3. Voluntariness is the principle that follows after knowledge and freedom.

One can't exercise full freedom without knowledge and vice versa. Voluntariness can't be unless there is knowledge and freedom.

Knowledge is categorized as:
1. What is invincible - He knows that he doesn't know.
2. What is visible - He knows that he is ignorant.
3. What is crass or pretended ignorance - Projects he is ignorant because he wants to make excuses from liabilities and responsibilities.

Freedom is not possession. It is inherent of man as person. It is a tool to create a moral person. It signifies man's reality of his existence. He is a responsible of what he does. Animals are not free. Freedom distinguishes of a person from the other animals because it is a gift, a priceless gift that comes from our Creator. It can't be stolen. It can't be given away because it is inherent in man's nature.

It is dehumanizing when freedom is taken from you. When the person is wrong, he is not entitled to his own opinion. Freedom is not something to be abused. It is not a license to do wrong, rather it is a license to do better.

Freedom has some restrictions. You should not destroy the freedom of others even though you have the right. The purpose of man is to perfect his existence.

In our school, the use of the drinking fountains are the main source which we, the students find it very nourishing because it quenches all our thirst from the excessive hotness or the state of condition that the call for drinking water is very much important. But here are some of the suggested solutions that we donate in order to get rid of the problem regarding the use of the drinking fountain.

1. Consult the dean about the said problem.
2. Place any notice if the drinking fountain is not functioning well or if it undergoes repair.
3. Always inspect the equipment if there is any damage or leak of its system.
4. Put some signages, letting the students be aware of not making the drinking fountain as their washing area or garbage area.
5. Clean the surface of its area to maintain its cleanliness.
6. Check if it is functioning well - keeping the plug always "on" in order to give fresh cold water for students to drink.
7. Put friendly instruction on how to properly use the drinking fountain.

Cosmocentrism relates to cosmos or the universe which makes as the centerpoint in any philosophical inquiry. In the cosmos, the presence of man and women who in the first place are created by God lives in the so-called universe. In fact, it is by the presence of man that makes them the center of the cosmos. It's existence makes it more clear which drives the universe to be the point of study from everything. Furthermore, in the cosmos, with the presence of man also lies the elements or the presence of fire, water, land and air that emanates its existence. Due toe these things, the cosmos in such a ways is regarded as the main point of study.

This question was being given to us by our professor in our second quiz. And this is my answer:

At first from the beginning of God's creation, He made man on the 7th day, but because God finds man alone and lonely, God thinks that he needs a companion. And thus, God formed Eve, a woman to be his companion in life. In this sense, I can say that man is not an island. He is a social being molded to communicate, interact, socialize and deal with his like.

Man is capable to feel. He has given his free will and rights so that he could fully exercise what he thinks he wants to relate well with. He is endowed with dignity and worth to be able to relate well with others. He is indulged with senses and rational thinking which makes him dominant over all in God's creation. Man is made for all.

I could remember that my first day in school is such an exciting day for me. I am excited to go to school. I even woke up early in the morning so that I could be able to attend the class on time and so I could be able to see my new classmates. It is such an exciting day for me. 

Our teacher is very good and lenient. She is so kind and very approachable. She is understanding and always take things easier for us. When we have our quiz, she will tell us clues when we are finding it hard to identify the problem. Believe me, she is so super, extra kind. 

But as days passed. When we had our class, I suddenly have noticed that she is transforming herself in a strict manner. Then, I thought what made her so?

Observing her, I can conceptualized things which lead me to think that she is in the right track of being so super, extra strict. But don't get me wrong, she is not into corporal punishment. Not like that. 

She is transforming her aura in teaching into a more discipline and command. That, I like the style. 

Teachers as I view it, needs to be strict. For I believe that a teacher who is strict at times, can be respected by the students. 

Teachers need to be strict so that...
1. They can't be underestimate by their students. 
2. They can impose more stiff discipline.
3. They can teach the students what is the proper way.
4. They can direct with great focus to what they want to instill to their students.
5. They don't like to be neglected, but instead, they want to be heard. 
6. They are dignified. 
7. They want alertness and lively classroom atmosphere. 
8. They challenge the students in some ways. 
9. They make every learning experience with purpose and goal to attain to. 
10. They make things in a justified way. 

If I were to ask, I want a strict teacher because I can easily understand and I have seen that he is having that much concern to his students.

"Humba", this is all pork and normally oily. It is very delicious. The meat is so tender. 

I have tasted back again this "Humba" at my friend's house here in the US when we had our party last week. It tastes so yummy. At first when I had a look at this viand, my mouth is like watery and I can't help myself but to take a big bite of it. 
This viand is one of the Filipino's favorite. It is much best to eat when you paired it with rice.

Based on this question, I posted for awhile thinking that I exist with purpose. I do think that my existence of knowing what nature should man poses makes me atone to this search.

To be a man is to be a man for everyone. He calls to care for the family. He works hard to sustain his life and the life of his family. He has the freedom to express how he feels, do hard labor and works. He is entitled to enjoy and exercise his rights and to follow rules and regulations. He is entitled not to harm others, instead he is ruled by laws and policies that he is expected to obey and follow them. He is a leader in some ways. He can bring and inflict influences to the people to go in the right direction. He can be a professional, an ordinary citizen or merely a person who lives a simple life. He is tasked to live in a life according to morals and standards. He is endowed with freedom and choices to decide what is best to do for his lfie.

He is expected to react and to live in a modest life and that if he is a problem to the society, he will have more problems to face. He is not satisfied by mere choice but he seeks to make certain his purpose.

He is ambitious. He never finds satisfaction in all the times. He is always in the quest for everything that sometimes because of power, he becomes greedy.

He is the person whom he wants to become.

I really like this song from my all-time favorite singer, Adele. "Make You Feel My Love" is a song that reminds us of sharing our love to the one we truly love and let him or her feel how much we treasure them in our life.

This song is a sort of an anthem in my every morning. The lyrics and the song are just so perfect. I really love this song. 


When the rain
Is blowing in your face
And the whole world
Is on your case
I could offer you
A warm embrace
To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows
And the stars appear
And there is no - one there
To dry your tears
I could hold you
For a million years
To make you feel my love

I know you
Haven't made
Your mind up yet
But I would never
Do you wrong
I've known it
From the moment
That we met
No doubt in my mind
Where you belong


I'd go hungry
I'd go black and blue
I'd go crawling
Down the avenue
Know there's nothing
That I wouldn't do
To make you feel my love

The storms are raging
On the rolling sea
And on the highway of regret
The winds of change
Are blowing wild and free
You ain't seen nothing
Like me yet

I could make you happy
Make your dreams come true
Nothing that I wouldn't do
Go to the ends
Of the Earth for you
To make you feel my love, To make you feel my love

I really have a total bad day today because of my wounded hand. I was able to prepare for breakfast and my plan of making a super delicious meal for my family ended up with just bread and egg. 

I sliced the meat so hard that I didn't know that the sharp knife gets into the skin and it turns out that I feel no pain at first. As water dipped down on the portion of the wounded part, then I started ouching. It was really painful. 

I hurriedly ran to look for the alcohol and find myself do the first aid. It is a horrible experience I had this morning. I was totally in pain. And our breakfast is just the other ordinary day with no spark of delicious food.

There are lots of things that my baby and I have spent here in the Philippines. We are having our vacation here and the thing that makes me so much happy is the kind of bond in experiencing to cherish the moment that only simple things as like these two pictures can tell. 

We are riding in the so-called "trisikad" as we went home from a distant walk. David, my baby seem so curious about the ride and he is always looking from here to there. He seems to see and feel what it is like to ride in such a transportation that is so open and he can see lots of people walking along the way. 

Riding a "trisikad" is so cheap. It just costs a cent or like P5.00 because we are just riding for a shorter mile. I am so blessed to have gained lots of simple experience and this vibrant moment is the one that I can also tell for my baby when he grows up.

The news of a fan of Brandon Jacobs named Joe, 6-year old, melts my heart today with a touch of this inspiring story. 

The news said that after reports have known by the little boy fan named Joe heard about Jacobs not anymore in the Giant team (football), this little kid made a letter and even would give an amount of money from his piggy bank, $3.36 for Jacobs not to leave the team. What a ever-touching story from a fan.

Football is a job. It is a business that surely would help and need the player's to fully explore and do their best for their winning. And Jacobs does so many winnings as part of Giant team. For the main reason that this is all about business (of course, that involves money), we can't really keep to think that all are in its permanence. Jacobs decision being in another team is from his own will. 

I am just like a quite sad about this little young kid who is that an avid fan of Jacobs and seeing Jacobs not in the Giant team anymore leaves a negative imprints of his growth, that would affect part of  his happiness. But life displays a portion and many of that kind of portions as like this to happen. We don't really know about what is going to happen next. 

Jacobs, according to the news, was in tears upon knowing the dedication that this boy shown to him. I hope that he will surely visit the boy and try to explain things that even though if he is going to transfer to another team, he will still love the Giant. 

This side of story is all about love and how to move on with the reality of life. But in the eyes of a 6-year old kid, it needs thorough explanation that would not leave a negative impact in his little views.
