I've been covering technology in fitness, fashion and health over the last 5 months and I really hope you enjoy these trend reports.
Like I say in the video, we're picking 3 winners per prize category, so you have an excellent chance of winning. In all aspects of life, I'm drawn to women who take a stand on issues, don't care about being labeled a freak and just come out and say whatever it is they feel needs to be said.
Even when I'm home alone and hungry, I can cook a HelloFresh meal and save the 2nd portion for my lunch or dinner the next day. The concept of the beautifully captured campaign was that an exciting adventure could be as close as your backyard. Every trainer I got was just going through the motions, fully knowing I'd disappear on him or her once my free sessions were up.
The day I went to film at KryoLife, owned and operated by Joanna Fryben,  I was actually feeling significant shoulder pain.
Cryotherapy is hailed as a cure-all and people are using it to get rid of all kinds of things like acne, cellulite, unwanted weight, inflammation, depression, libido problems, and body injuries.
To be perfectly honest, the TomTom Spark Cardio + Music frustrated me at first because therea€™s a bit of set up involved. I refer to my life as a juggling act because there are so many facets of what I do that need to be in constant motion. In fact, I have more than a few waist trainers that I've been using for over a year since becoming curious about the waist training trend. As a Latina (my mother is Honduran), I'm feeling the need to spice up Thanksgiving with some Latin peppers.
What follows are my favorite photographs from the day I conquered my fears with the Special Olympics of Missouri. You might think that living in downtown Manhattan, I already see it all when it comes to high style.
If you haven't been to any of Serene Social's wellness events yet, you're missing out and should definitely go to the one happening tomorrow in NYC at the launch of New York's Fashion Week.
I will be there and looking forward to some heart opening rooftop yoga atop the James Hotel in Soho. So here's my Flat Stanley Skincare Secret: I seek out skincare that's packaged flat and in single servings. One of the best parts of going on a road trip adventure is everything that you see along your drive.
This trip will take us to some pretty amazing places where nature makes you feel empowered and free.
Barre classes first came about in a big way in the 1950's on account of ballerina Lotte Berk. Barre fitness is all about using small movements to work trouble spots and tone every inch of your body by working multiple muscles in unison. It beats being ohm-ing indoors, especially with the cool breeze off the harbor blowing through your hair.
Earlier this summer, I spent one of the most amazing and healthiest travel weekends of my life at the Four Seasons Baltimore. I first saw a pair of Vira Suns on my yoga-instructor-friend, Lauren Imparato, during a yoga class in the middle of Times Square. What sets this year's event apart from the last few, aside from the bearably cooler weather, was yoga-preneur Lauren Imparato leading the highly publicized morning class.
After years of dealing with this issue called a€?sleevage,a€? Ia€™ve concluded that most bras Ia€™ve worn are actually the real culprits. Before you give a listen though, I want to share my thoughts on what Katya Meyers is doing.
I got in touch with the designer, Geneva Peschka from SunandDaughtersCo on Etsy, to find out more about the inspiration behind the shirt.
Geneva bravely decided to act on the lessons she learned through these books and noticed her life change drastically for the better. The new Lotus Print collection by adidas Originals is urban, striking and feminine in a cool, unapologetic way. If you're a Zumba fanatic, you should know that the cruise doesn't set sail for another 7 months from Fort Lauderdale, Florida but at least you have some time to plan, right?
And just in case you stop dancing to see where the hell you're going, the cruise will be sailing to Falmouth, Jamaica with a stop in Labadee, Haiti for a private live concert featuring the hottest Caribbean artists. While the entire Team SCA crew was not on board, 2 of its sailors were there to answer all my questions. Their sail, while impressive in it's own right, represents something far greater for women.
From your clothes to accessories and gadgets, don't take a risk by wearing it for the first time on race day!
FOR an exclusive womena€™s fitness class combining Surfset Fitness (the NEW surf-fitness trend) and Real Ryder Spinning (35 minutes of each). I picked out some rather loud styles for our shoot but once I got comfortable in them, I had no qualms wearing them "off-set". Short girls are always getting brainwashed into thinking we can't pull off more eccentric looks or fashion trends that taller girls can get away with. Leave a comment below telling me which fitness myth gets under your skin and why it's soooo untrue.
If there's something you should know about me it's that I avoid tourist traps at all costs!
For the sake of being accurate, let's call these dangerous deodorants what they really are, which is antiperspirants. It's totally blowing my mind but at the same time I keep asking myself: why should this feel surreal?
I typically only share my press features on my press page, but today I'm expecially THANKFUL because this issue of People Style Watch marks the 12th time I've been quoted in their magazine.
One of the most classic New Year's resolutions is to start going to the gym more, which is exactly why gyms start hiking up their enrollment fees around this time.
I was there to buy an assortment of chocolates for my Aunt as a combined birthday and Valentine's Day gift. I make yoga dates with my girlfriends constantly because I feel like I get the most quality time with them during this workout than any other. This is Nicola Yvette, my longtime friend who teaches yoga & pilates (check her out here). Last night we went on yoga date to Laughing Lotus Yoga NYC and it was pretty awesome to experience her energy and soulfulness right beside me. People dona€™t just show up to classa€¦they show up wearing designer sportswear and the latest in tracking accessories. If you're looking to visit NYC or take a staycation yourself, keep reading for details about the GIVEAWAY I'm offering with Dream Hotels.
When I entered my room at the Dream Hotel Midtown, this was the first thing I saw: a framed picture of my 2 puggles, a bottle of champagne and a gluten-free birthday cake! MANILA — The Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church of Christ) issued a circular to its flock on Wednesday, reminding them to vote as one in the May 9 elections as an exercise of their faith.
In a circular read after worship services on Wednesday, INC executive minister Eduardo Manalo emphasized to INC members the importance of their bloc vote by citing biblical passages. He said the names of the candidates for national and local positions the INC members would be united in voting for on Mondaywould be given to the members through sample ballots that would be sent to them. Escudero, erstwhile front-runner in the vice presidential race, was trailing behind his rivals Rep. In the latest Pulse Asia survey commissioned by ABS-CBN, Roxas edged out Poe by one percentage point, for a virtual tie in second place.
But Escudero answered “no” when asked if he thinks President Benigno Aquino III and his anointed candidate will allow cheating on May 9. CEBU CITY— A supporter of a reelectionist mayor in a Cebu town was shot dead in a noon ambush on Wednesday in the municipality. The victim, 48-year-old Rene Cangmaong, a supporter of Mayor Aljun Diamante of Tubran town, Cebu, was killed on Wednesday noon, at the municipality’s upland area in Sitio Sambag, Barangay Mag-antoy. Cangmaong, a former member of the New People’s Army (NPA) based in Tuburan, was a job order employee of Tuburan, working as a market guard. SPO1 John Philip Acaso, investigator of the Tuburan police, said  that Cangmaong was with six men on board three motorcycles when they were waylaid by at least three unidentified armed men. Acaso said the armed men might have waited on a hill top as the victims, including Cagmaong, were making their way to an uphill road.
While his companions scampered away, Cangmaong was left, slumped on the ground and he was allegedly shot several times. Acaso said the five other survivors claimed that they came from the house of Diamante in Barangay Cogon.
They were on their way to Barangay Kabangkalan, some 25 kilometers from the town proper, to attend a fiesta celebration when they were attacked. He said the survivors’ description of the attackers were still sketchy and they  could not say exactly how many assailants took part in the ambush. Acaso said Labador, who sustained a gunshot wound on one of his legs, left with a certain Pepe to seek treatment. MOSCOW — British actor Orlando Bloom, in a more serious role as goodwill ambassador for Unicef, has visited schools in eastern Ukraine to raise awareness of how the conflict there has hurt children.
In video and photos released Wednesday by Unicef, Bloom plays games with children, talks to their parents and teachers and goes down into a basement that serves as a bomb shelter. The school Bloom visited in late April in Slovyansk was among the first hit by shelling when fighting broke out two years ago between Russia-backed separatists and Ukrainian troops. UNICEF estimates that about 300,000 children in the conflict zone are still in need of assistance to continue their education. Romualdez, who is also the president of the Philippine Constitution Association, said Duterte’s tough talk and style of leadership in Davao were well-received by most Filipinos. The feisty mayor was known for his profanity-laced speeches and remarks, including public admissions of killing, dumping of criminals at the Manila Bay, cursing the Pope, joking about the rape of an Australian missionary and talking about his penis in front of businessmen.
Duterte continues to enjoy a double-digit lead over his rivals in the presidential race, securing at least 30 percent of voter preference.
MANILA — In an attempt to disprove the accusations Senator Antonio Trillanes IV, has leveled against him, presidential hopeful Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte came up on Wednesday, with his 11 passbooks, only to allow the media to take a peek at some of his bank transaction history.
In a press conference in Manila on Wednesday, the trash-talking mayor, did not show all and merely presented selected contents of his bank accounts.
He presented the bank statements for the questionable dollar and peso accounts at the Bank of the Philippine Islands on Julia Vargas Avenue. One bank certificate issued by the BPI on March 3, 2016 certified that the joint account of Duterte and his daughter, Sara Z. According to another a bank certificate, this account only had P17,816.98 as of March 31, 2014, three days after Duterte was supposed to have accepted P197 million as alleged by Trillanes. Duterte showed the bank statements for his dollar account, whose existence his rival, Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas, earlier tried to prove by depositing $10. The Davao mayor showed a transaction history of his dollar account, which as of April 30, 2016, contained a balance of $5, 065.33, including the $10 deposit that a staff member of Roxas had made. But the mayor had only presented documents, which covered transaction history beginning March 31, 2014. Trillanes accused Duterte of accepting eight cash deposits totaling P197 million, which were credited to Duterte’s bank account at the BPI Julia Vargas branch on his 69th birthday on March 28, 2014. Duterte dodged the question on why he would not present a transaction history earlier than March 31, 2014, saying the BPI had refused to issue a certification. Duterte said the BSP and the AMLC never investigated his accounts for the billions of pesos going through his bank accounts as claimed by Trillanes. The Davao mayor claimed the pastor has been his friend ever since he was a state prosecutor. He told reporters he would never accept gifts from other people except Quiboloy, owner and operator of a media outfit, a school, and other properties in Davao.
Under the Republic Act 3019, or the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act, government officers are prohibited from accepting gifts of significant value from a person other than a member of the public officer’s immediate family. COTABATO CITY — Another transmission tower in Lanao del Sur was bombed and toppled Tuesday night, just as the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) announced the restoration of the Agus 2 hydropower plant to the power grid. Cynthia Perez-Alabanza, NGCP spokesperson and head of Corporate Communications and Public Affairs, said Tower 25 in the village of Linamon in Ramain town was bombed at past 11 p.m. The same tower was bombed on Christmas Eve and it took more than three months for the NGCP to repair the structure due to right of way claim issues. Tower 25 was part of the transmission towers that transmitted 138-kilovolt Agus 2-Kibawe line. Repair works for Tower 25 was delayed early this year due to the refusal of lot owner, the Sanbitory family, to allow NGCP field workers to restore the structure. Another example of a toppled power transmission tower in Mindanao, this time in Kabacan, North Cotabato.
The military under the 103rd Infantry Brigade of the Philippine Army deployed troops from 65th Infantry Battalion to secure the area for the restoration work. Elizabeth Ladaga, an NGCP corporate communications officer, said that as of May 4, NGCP had an 80-megawatt deficiency, and that the bombing on the tower caused power outage in some areas in Mindanao.
Asked about the performance of former Interior Secretary Mar Roxas in the aftermath of Supertyphoon “Yolanda,” senatorial candidate and Leyte Rep. In an INQLive interview, Romualdez said no preparations could have been sufficient for what was dubbed the strongest typhoon to ever hit land in history. Romualdez is a cousin of Tacloban City Mayor Alfred Romualdez, who has widely criticized the Aquino administration for alleged politicking amid rehabilitation efforts. Senatorial aspirant and Leyte Representative Martin Romualdez on Wednesday said it would be appropriate for the country to adopt a two-party system to prevent disorder brought by shifting alliances especially during election season. Romualdez is seeking a Senate seat as an independent candidate, but disclosed he was considered to be in the slate of presidential aspirants Miriam Santiago, Rodrigo Duterte, Jejomar Binay and Grace Poe. In an INQLive interview on Wednesday, Romualdez said he wanted the Eastern Visayas region to have a representative in the Senate so that the constituents’ needs can be more attended to. The lawmaker also reiterated his proposal to create a department solely for disaster response that will have its own budget and head. The release last Sunday of 10 Indonesian seafarers held hostage by the Abu Sayyaf bandit group was good news, but the kind that underlined the bad: Four more Indonesians remain in captivity, at least seven other foreigners have been abducted, and it is likely that the release was facilitated by the payment of ransom.
Armed Forces of the Philippines officials also denied that any ransom had been paid to the notorious kidnap group. The Indonesians were brought to the house of the Sulu governor on Sunday, and returned by private plane to a military base in Jakarta by early Monday. Another source asserted that the shipping company that employed the Indonesians, Patria Maritime Lines, paid the P50 million that the kidnappers were demanding.
Some may argue that paying up is the only effective way to save hostages; military action in the dense terrain of Basilan and Sulu is difficult, and not a guarantee of success. Sorry experience tells us it isn’t only private parties who end up paying ransom; some governments have been known to look the other way or even actively facilitate ransom payments to effect the release of their citizens. But the grimmer reality is that ransom payments tighten the Abu Sayyaf hold on the areas it controls. The problem becomes worse when considered in view of the new reputation that part of southern Philippines is gaining: A possible “new Somalia,” treacherous waters where unsuspecting travellers and sailors are abducted at gunpoint and held for ransom.
Tomorrow, diplomats and military officials from the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia will meet to discuss the possibility of conducting joint naval patrols in the area. Last Saturday, Smart Araneta Coliseum was packed to the rafters with fans from Ateneo and La Salle, but wait, this was not a basketball game. The turnout, and the wild cheering, tell me volleyball, or at least women’s volleyball, is coming of age in the Philippines and, as sports go, taking on its own Filipino characteristics. In previous UAAP seasons the volleyball competitions were held in the Filoil Stadium in San Juan.
Also, incredibly, there were people who just wanted to watch the game, rooting for particular schools but not necessarily coming from those institutions. Volleyball was “invented” in the United States almost around the same time as basketball—in the late 19th century.  Both sports were intended as an indoor alternative to keep athletes fit.
The game’s fast pace, balls forcefully flying from one court to another, led to its new name, and the game spread quickly not just in America but throughout the world.  We got the game from the Americans and there is a curious mention in Wikipedia about how quickly the rules evolved, including “set and spike” moves already in place in 1916 in the Philippines.
The rules are amazingly complicated and I have to confess that until last Saturday I was happy just watching the game.  But at the championship, I had my eldest daughter, a volleyball player herself, with me and she explained—don’t laugh—why we have five sets, and why there’s no timer on when the sets are about to end. When I did check the Internet for descriptions of different types of serves, my anthropological interest perked up after reading about a move in Brazil called the jornada nas estrellas, “star trek,” known in English as the sky ball serve.  As the name suggests, the ball goes high, high up in the air. I suspect the appeal of volleyball to Filipinos comes in part with its speed.  Points build up quickly, even more quickly than basketball and that allows for a lot of cheering and applause. Besides the speed, we admire the stamina, admiring the athletes even after one gruelling set. This is a game that has to be watched live with all its split-second mysteries: Did the ball make it within the boundary, which means the receiving team loses a point? Notice, too, how fortunate women volleyball players are able to express their feelings much more openly, and theatrically, than men can. Then there were the simple hugs and squealing.  Can you imagine basketball players doing the wiggle-bump and hugging? I’m wondering if, with time, we’ll adopt a new development, that of the “libero player,” each team having one such player specializing in defensive skills and wearing a different jersey color. Volleyball will fly high in the Philippines, drawing larger crowds each year and, I hope, it will spill over to make us more internationally competitive. Meanwhile, can I call on UP supporters to cheer our teams on this Thursday in the championship round? Many may be familiar with the “kikay kits” or make-up bags, since expanded to include coin purses, passport holders, document folders and even handbags made out of leatherette with covers woven out of cloth scraps more commonly used for doormats. These are products of an innovative social enterprise known as Rags2Riches (R2R) that sought to change the lives of women (and men) living in the urban poor community of Payatas, though it has since expanded to other communities around the country. To celebrate the opening of this store and also on the occasion of Labor Day, R2R also held a sale in all their stores (the others are in Glorietta 3, Power Plant, Podium and TriNoma) with a 20-percent discount given on items worth P600 or more. I visited the R2R store at the UP Town Center over the weekend and found a variety of products that have certainly gone a long way from the simple purses that made up the initial line. Products bear a card that carries not only the name of the artisan that handcrafted the item, but also a “back story” that tells of R2R’s beginnings and philosophy. Proudly, R2R says that “We don’t just love seeing transformation, we love being a big part of it! Most of us are now caught up in election fever, pondering our choices and even, at times, letting the fevered loyalties triggered by candidates and political parties to strain (if not break entirely) personal ties and friendships. She bases her belief, she said, in the massive showing of Roxas supporters when he arrived in Dagupan City for the last of the three presidential debates.
Later, during the debate, some 6,000 Ro-Ro supporters gathered in two viewing venues to cheer on their candidate.
Despite his populist stances, Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte does not really have the welfare of the poor, especially of farmers, in mind.
In his speech before the Makati Business Club, Duterte, in the course of his rambling declarations, announced that he would abolish the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) because it has not done the farmers or landowners any good. Speaking in Filipino, Mora pointed out that agrarian reform is one of the core principles of development.
While Filipino historians need to go abroad to dig up primary-source materials for their work, their task is made easier these days because of the Internet.
These past few years I strayed from my Rizal and 19th-century comfort zone to explore relations with 17th-century Japan. The materials made available to researchers are fascinating because they give us the US view on Philippine political life. The above memo may be ancient history to millennials, but it tells us there is much in Philippine elections that has not changed since the time of Manuel Quezon.
One doesn’t have to suspend reason and disbelief to understand the phenomenon of Rodrigo Duterte. Although Duterte softens his caveman persona by disarming people with clever banter and funny jokes, thus managing to appear variously as menacing, entertaining and folksy, make no mistake: It’s his dark side that attracts people. Not surprisingly, his rising support comes not only from the poor and wretched of the earth but also from a big chunk of a frustrated and disenchanted middle class—lodged between the impoverished masses into which it fears sliding and the power elite to which it aspires to belong, with both classes impatiently clamoring for change and reform.
Duterte’s incredible popularity, despite his crude blunders—such as cursing the Pope and his infamous “rape joke” made at the expense of a long dead Australian missionary—is evidently being fueled by an atavistic, primal instinct among our people who crave order and a better life under the strong arm of a man with a seeming license to kill. By now it is crystal-clear that nothing he does to insult and mock the powers that be, our cherished institutions, and our basic sensibilities can dent his thick armor of earthy, macho one-liners and vigilante image reminiscent of Clint Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry” films, which are actually variations on the theme of Fernando Poe Jr.’s action movies, where the bad guys always end up at the receiving end of swift, avenging, extrajudicial justice. Movie fans were thrilled by how those cinema heroes dispensed justice, street-style, thus bypassing the gridlock of US and Philippine courts and the usual conniving corrupt politicians and smart lawyers hired by criminals.
Perhaps we should peer deeply in the mirror late tonight, alone and in silence, to see another side of ourselves: a brutish, lawless, immoral side lying just beneath the civilized, law-abiding, moral selves that we display to the world. On second thought, we don’t really have to go to a mirror to acknowledge that savage side lurking in all of us. Let’s admit it: In the safety of our Freudian thoughts, all of us have boiled alive corrupt politicians and other oppressors, and tarred and feathered our lesser enemies. Like moths inescapably drawn to a flame, it is the alleged cold-blooded killing of criminals that attracts Filipinos of almost all stripes to Duterte. Repudiating the spirit and gains of Edsa I, if he makes good on his promise to allow a hero’s burial for the dictator Ferdinand Marcos.
Governing through fear and violence, which will trigger more violence of retaliation from those harmed by it. Honoring his pledge to stamp out crime in six months by executing thousands of suspected criminals or to abolish Congress if it interferes in his fight against criminality. Having been a foundling, she defends the rights of children, especially orphans and the poor.
I am for Poe because she epitomizes the strengths of a woman: decisive and firm, holistic and nurturing, open-minded and hardworking, responsible and reliable. Not only do we need a president who can unify our people, our next leader should also be able to iron out wrinkles in our foreign relations. Our next president must have credibility and respectability to strengthen our goodwill with other countries. Poe was received by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the Istana, and by then Foreign Affairs and Law Minister Kasiviswanathan Shanmugam. The visit to Singapore provided Poe with additional ideas for educational and governance reform.
In 2013, Christian prolife groups nationwide declared war on candidates who supported the Reproductive Health (RH) Law. This campaign season, to patronage and popularity has been added profanity—a powerful new currency, judging by the lead presidential aspirant Rodrigo Duterte has been able to keep these last few weeks.
Much has been said about his remark on murder-rape victim Jacqueline Hamill; not enough about his claim to have shot a law school classmate whom he said was a bully.
By bragging about this act, Duterte tells Filipinos it is well to take the law violently into one’s own hands. There is an even darker side to Duterte than speech that glorifies violence: the Davao Death Squad. Duterte’s candidacy seems to be a prime opportunity for prolife advocates to educate the faithful and the secular public on the sacredness of life. Falu posts lists of candidates who voted for the RH Law in 2012, asking prolifers not to vote for them.
Prolife advocates have only days left before the elections to join human rights and women’s rights advocates (some of whom they may think to be in need of exorcism) in raising the alarm against Duterte and picking away the votes that might make him our next president.
The tipping point (in addition to the sexual remark he made on the Australian missionary Jacqueline Hamill, who was killed while ministering to “the least of My brethren,” which caused me many sleepless nights) was not Sen. To me, more than the staggering amount involved was the cavalier attitude he showed when he made those declarations.
Lastly, let’s vote not on the basis of a candidates’ winnability and popularity but on the basis of our personal convictions. Although I don’t concur with retired chief justice Artemio Panganiban’s views at times, it’s always a pleasure reading his column, “With Due Respect” in the Inquirer. Panganiban wrote: “As for me, anyone can challenge Poe’s qualifications in case she wins, in the same manner that anyone can contest the eligibility of, say, Rodrigo Duterte whose disqualification suit is still pending in the Comelec, or of Jejomar Binay, who may be sued for alleged corruption, or of Mar Roxas in the same way he filed a protest against Binay’s vice presidential victory in 2010. Let me add my own observation, and I wish to singularly address this to the Commission on Elections and the contending parties.
Hence the high tribunal expounded on the matter at hand pointblank and as best as it could.
Apparently this pestering “pandemonium” couldn’t be anything legal, but just everything political.
My family lives in an un-gated and unguarded mini-residential subdivision along Mindanao Avenue in Barangay Bahay Toro, Quezon City.
The front of our house has practically transmogrified into a “terminal” for tricycles, many of which have exhaust pipes that belch out toxic smoke and make ear-splitting, roaring sounds. Worse, at the back of our house hemmed in by other houses, is an abandoned, illegally constructed, unfinished 10-story hospital building. Lately, we learned that a criminal complaint was filed in court by the building official against the hospital building owner and contractor for violation of the National Building Code and the Quezon City zoning ordinance. These problems confronting our community may be the same problems being experienced by other communities located nearby or in-between a super highway and an informal settlement. The key to economic growth in the Philippines rests heavily upon micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs), which comprise 99.6 percent of all businesses registered in the country.
On its third year, TechIsland is an initiative by PLDT Smart SME Nation that seeks to open the eyes of the entrepreneur to the potentials of harnessing the power of digital tools and platforms for business use, technologies that can help MSMEs grow their markets, reach more customers, empower their business processes, and, ultimately, become more profitable. The stage was set last April 22 at the Harbour Tent of the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Manila to bring together representatives of over 1400 SMEs to listen to and interact with the country’s most dynamic leaders in the ICT field. With the battlecry of “Challenge, change and conquer,” the plenary session was opened by Eric R. First guest speaker was Winston Damarillo, PLDT’s Chief Strategy Officer and CEO of the PLDT Group’s big data arm, Talas. Laurence Cua, General Manager of Uber Philippines took to the stage talking about how traffic was costing the Philippine economy some PhP2.4 billion per day, a problem that can be mitigated by getting more cars and drivers off the road. Representing Facebook Philippines was its Interim Country Director and Group Director of Global Marketing Solutions Alfredo Tan. Following the morning plenary, the afternoon’s breakout sessions were divided into four tracks, targeting specific roles in an organization. The Captain track included CEOs and owners, with speakers giving a more macro perspective on digital strategies. To celebrate and cap the event, TechIsland 3.0 culminated in a convention party, which allowed its delegates and speakers to mingle with each other and network against a backdrop of entertainment and festivity. While this year’s TechIsland has officially come to a close, the new directions it has presented to MSME entrepreneurs means that the actual work is just starting.
SINGAPORE, Singapore—Oil prices extended losses in Asia Wednesday, with the US benchmark below $44 a barrel owing to a pick-up in the dollar and as Iran ramps up production, while traders await the release of inventories later in the day. Crude closed lower for the third straight session Tuesday on renewed worries about a global supply glut as the United States and China released disappointing manufacturing data indicating ongoing weakensses in the economic giants.
Traders are waiting for the release later Wednesday of the weekly stockpiles data, which is used as a gauge for demand in the world’s biggest oil consumer. Prices have surged over the past month, hitting 2016 highs last week, on signs of a pick-up in China, a weaker dollar and hopes that stalled talks on limiting output could be revived. However, the greenback rallied on Wednesday after two regional officials of the Federal Reserve said an interest-rate increase could be considered next month at a meeting of US central bank policymakers. A stronger greenback makes oil, which is priced in dollars, more expensive for customers using other currencies. Tehran has been ramping up production after Western sanctions linked to its nuclear programme were lifted in January, further adding to the oversupplied market.
The Philippines would sustain its robust economic growth this year given its strong and resilient domestic demand, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) said Tuesday.
In the next two years, “domestic demand will benefit from higher public consumption and investment growth, but private demand is also expected to remain buoyant, helped by low unemployment, low oil prices and higher workers’ remittances,” according to the IMF. The rollout of public-private partnership or PPP projects to address the lack of public infrastructure in the country would bolster private investments as well, the IMF added.
Net exports or external trade as a whole would remain subdued in the near term, although the Philippines was seen being impacted minimally by the slowdown in the Chinese economy, the lender said.
It noted that last year, despite the impact of lower net exports, real GDP growth remained robust in the Philippines, with domestic demand benefiting from favorable terms of trade. In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange Tuesday, BPI attributed the marginal profit hike from last year’s level of P4.92 billion to the performance of its core lending business, non-interest income as well securities trading. Business leaders have called on the next administration to set a “clear” energy mix policy to guide investors on what energy and power infrastructure would best support the country’s economic growth. In a forum hosted jointly by the Economic Journalists Association of the Philippines (Ejap) and ING Bank, Phinma Corp.
The business community has made it very clear that as far as the energy side was concerned, the Philippines needed quality power supply at competitive rates, European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) vice president Henry Schumacher told reporters on the sidelines of the forum. The Department of Energy (DOE) had often said it was encouraging “balanced” energy investments that would result in coal-fired power plants supplying 30 percent of the country, RE contributing another 30 percent, LNG another 30 percent and the rest by other technologies.
The property business—through its unit SM Prime Holdings Inc.—accounted for  the lion’s share of earnings, or 43 percent of the company’s consolidated net income. At end-March 2016, SM Retail had a total of 314 stores comprising 53 The SM Stores, 45 SM Supermarkets, 44 SM Hypermarkets, 140 Savemore and 32 WalterMart stores.


BDO Unibank, for its part, posted a net income of P5.5 billion as core lending, deposit-taking and fee-generating businesses delivered solid numbers. SM Prime reported a recurring net income growth of 12 percent in the first quarter to P5.8 billion. Rental revenues from malls and commercial spaces, which accounted for 59 percent of the total, grew 14 percent to P10.8 billion. Q: I have read some commentaries in the news that the reason why the market has been falling lately was because investors are nervous that one presidential candidate who is currently leading in the surveys may win in next week’s elections?
The stock market based on historical experience from the past four presidential elections has shown that it has always performed positively during the election year regardless of who wins the presidency. Two months ago, I wrote in this column “How do presidential elections affect the stock market?” that the market tends to rise by an average of 5.9 percent from the start of the campaign period up to Election Day. So far, the market has already gained as much as 9.5 percent at 7,412 since the campaign period started and is currently entering correction mode.
But could there be any possibility that current weakness in the market be attributed to a particular presidential candidate?
If we are going to look at the historical patterns from the past elections, the market has always trended lower one week before Election Day. The market is expected to slow down during this period because investors are concerned on how credible the election process will be conducted. Depending on how the events in the coming days will turn out, political uncertainties tend to raise the equity risk premium. The reason I find them so relevant is because by 2020, wearable technology alone with generate over 20 billion dollars in revenue. Last night I made HelloFresh's Carmelized Onion Burger but instead of fries, the recipe included a roasted cauliflower side. It was supposed to wet your appetite for personal training and help you ease into your new gym-life. People are investing more of their paycheck in health & wellness, and seem to be more committed to their workouts than ever. But if you want the benefits of the treatment, it's worth enduring the very looooong 3 minutes. So I was genuinely hoping to reap the benefits of whole body cryo and report back to you on how quickly it worked. Most of the ones Ia€™ve purchased or have been sent to review bite the dust in my gadget drawer at Mizzfit Headquarters. I have what seems like a billion projects going on at once, and if I ignore one of thema€”well, you know what happensa€”the balls, the chainsaws and flaming sticks come toppling down on you and scatter.
Like many of you, I saw Kim Kardashian's selfie that she took in her trainer and wondered what's this? One of my recipes is an appetizer and the other is a side dish to accompany your turkey dinner.
Look for them in the canned and jar food aisle where you'd find things like stewed tomatoes, pasta sauces, etc. I'm pretty sure it was a combination of the perm's harsh chemicals (it was the early 90's afterall) and my onset of puberty.
There's an amazing event called Over The Edge that happens nationwide through the Special Olympics, and I decided to do it in St. In addition to raising awareness for this extraordinary event, I raised money to support it.
To some extent that's true because of the amazing and innovative fashion sense people have here.
Serene Social has teamed up with Lululemon and Suja for this gathering to kick off the calamity of fashion energy that's about to overtake the city.
By the time his photographs started getting noticed through social media, it was already a passion project.
I've talked a lot about Haute Athletics this summer and love that they carry stuff you won't find elsewhere. Since there are women rockin' this style and attitude in their everyday clothing, clearly there should be activewear that expresses the same vibe!
Her prodigees went on to turn barre fitness into a successful business of popular, packed classes.
Quite honestly, I felt like I was hiding out, as if I had taken off for an exotic and faraway retreat.
But the real highlight was scoring my room at the Four Seasons for their celebration of Global Wellness Day, which was served up as a full week of fit & healthy activities. Men don't like to be kept in the dark, because they know whatever you give them they'll have to top when it's time to shop for you.
I knew this year for Father's Day I was going to give my dad a travel bag that would help him do this. Here's the link again on Lucy's Blog :)]]>On June 21st, Athleta was the headlining sponsor of Solstice in Times Square put on by Times Square Alliance for it's 13th year. When Katya first reached out to me and shared a bit of her life with me, I was really impressed with her background and how she left a traditional career path to pursue an endeavor her heart was stuck on (racing).
She told me that over the last few years she's been doing a lot of self work and stumbled across Spirit Junkie by Gabrielle Bernstein. During my little photoshoot in NYC's Meatpacking District, locals and tourists alike kept pointing out my gear to their group.
She works out with me, attends my events and has modeled for print ads (like the one above which actually never ran) and in magazines with me.
After writing about Team SCA and their amazing adventure racing around the world, I was invited on a press trip to sail with them.
Just to clarify, the Volvo Ocean Race is ongoing and was in full effect while I was on this press trip, but a few crew members at a time are allowed to come off the boat for a leg of the race and rest up. As I write this, there are some incredibly athletic and brave women sailing around the world as part of Team SCA.
It stops in nine countries around the world before finishing in Gothenburg, Sweden this June of 2015. Test everything you plan on wearing for the official half marathon race day during your last few training runs. Now that crazy party church is home to David Barton Gym and LimeLight shops where health and fashion are king and "queen" (it's in Chelsea, so I had to).
And if anyone has ever told you that knee highs only look good on girls with skinny legs, well, that's just NOT TRUE. Personally, I just think it's a matter of choosing a pattern, color or length that best suit your legs. I like to uncover the healthiest and most active things going on in the places I travel to, and I always prefer to go off the beaten path.
As I get older, I find I need to do more to preserve the firmness, the lift and glow factor of my skin. I'm feeling really grateful for 2.5 years of working with them to report on the hottest fitness trends happening nation-wide. To be honest, I have more health goals than I can count on 5 sets of hands, so I'll keep it short and sweet.
Since she's a fashion designer, I knew she'd love chocolates from the most stylish and talked about chocolatier in town (the owners used to work at Per Se). As a fitness trend expert, Ia€™m thrilled to see this movement thrive, but I go crazy when I cana€™t sign up for a class because it's completely SOLD OUT! Francis “Chiz” Escudero on Wednesday said only the administration was capable of cheating in the May 9 polls.
Walang iba,” Escudero said in a forum in Quezon City, when asked if Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas was capable of cheating in the elections. 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards Post-Party at The Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 10, 2016 in Beverly Hills, California. It is one of 57 that the United Nations Children’s Fund has helped to repair and refurbish.
Martin Romualdez has weighed in on the popularity of presidential aspirant Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, who has been leading preference polls less than a week before the elections. In this 2016 photo, workers from the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines and soldiers guard one tower in Lanao del Norte.
Martin Romualdez on Wednesday said the public should veer away from pointing out shortcomings.
The mayor, a nephew of former First Lady Imelda Marcos, had a spat with Roxas during a meeting after the Yolanda onslaught, which was caught in a viral video. The lawmaker issued the statement in April when the Liberal Party ticket campaigned in his province, particularly in the areas struck by the typhoon. In the first place, it is highly unusual for Abu Sayyaf hostages to regain freedom without ransom payments. Mayor Hussin Amin of Jolo, Sulu, said he did not know if ransom was paid for the 10 Indonesian hostages. This was the championship game for the women’s volleyball of the University Athletic Association of the Philippines (UAAP).
The competing schools’ students accounted for many of the spectators, but volleyball seems to have gained favor as well as a family sport.
I was particularly touched during a women’s semifinals game when UP played against Ateneo, and I noticed boxes of fried chicken. I think, too, the teams being more or less stationary on either side of the court makes the game easier to follow, but still with many moments of high suspense. Yes, there’s a gender element here, the sport being stereotyped as the domain of women and male gays; and rather than countering the latter, I’d say, and why not?  Perhaps volleyball requires a certain grace, an elan that’s hard for macho athletes to master. There were so many celebratory movements, dances actually, like team members breaking out into a can-can routine (kicking one leg upwards, in a synchronized move).
My daughter and I were sitting behind three ebullient macho La Sallites who would do a Green Archer move (pretending to shoot an arrow with a bow) every time their team scored. It’s a game where all we do has elements of performance and exhibition.  It wasn’t surprising too that beach volleyball would develop, or that the sport is popular in “naturist” camps in Europe. She is not allowed to serve and there are all kinds of rules on how she works on the defense. Several of the star volleyball players are graduating, but I am certain we will continue to hear of them, if not cheer them on in many more competitions. This was done by tapping the already existing skills of the women, which they used only for weaving doormats out of cloth scraps that were then sold in markets or by door-to-door peddlers, and upgrading these into more marketable products. I know her mainly as a sister in Towns (The Outstanding Women in the Nation’s Service), who eight years ago began working with “artisans to create beautiful products that could also lift them out of poverty.” This Reese did by working with noted designers like Rajo Laurel and Amina Alunan to come up with stylish items out of such humble materials like woven cloth scraps.
Indeed, Roxas-Robredo supporters gave him a “yellow carpet” welcome, escorted him to the venue by hundreds of bikers while thousands of yellow-garbed supporters lined up both sides of the streets, waving yellow flaglets and showering him with yellow confetti as he entered the Phinma University of Pangasinan auditorium. Hundreds of other supporters also watched the debate live at the Rizal Park in a spontaneous gathering that gave lie to the “snapshots” presented by the survey firms, holding up hope that in the last few days leading up to election day, a miracle could still occur or, rather, that the true will of the people would prevail. Much of the preliminary bibliographic spadework can be done online, saving a lot of time and money, although there is a romantic thrill in personally discovering a relevant document amid a mountain of related documents.
I dipped into the Second World War while researching on Jorge Vargas and the Philippine Embassy in Tokyo, then I have been learning about figures from the Ilocos: from the people involved in the Basi Revolt of 1807, to Artemio Ricarte aka Vibora (Viper), to Elpidio Quirino and Ferdinand Marcos. For example, a memorandum from a deputy assistant secretary of state for Far Eastern Affairs to the US secretary of state on Nov. Given the prevalently low standard of living in the Philippines, and the fact that the NP will be in power for two more years, this practical reaction to the democratic process could be anticipated.
Both the 1957 election and this one show that while rural voters will generally follow local political leadership they will no longer accept blindly candidates who are notoriously objectionable either for personal reasons or from the standpoint of clean and effective government. And the details can provide context to our present elections and make us realize that things don’t have to be the way they are. In the perspective of Philippine politics, he stands out, sui generis, as the morphed, archetypal denizen of a long gone age: the time of brutish, club-wielding, Neanderthal man who anthropologists say killed his enemies and predatory beasts quickly and fearlessly. Thus, just as power corrupts, so does its absence, as those deprived of it seek quick vengeance and redemption in a new social order. Many books on human behavior have explored that dark, violent, sexual and unpredictable aspect of our being. In truth, we often covertly express that side during heated arguments (“Oh, how I want to kill this bastard!”) and numerous daily events such as navigating through Manila’s maddening traffic where, in our all-too-vivid imagination, we zap all the wayward motorists and jaywalkers who cross our path, including the cop who gave us a ticket for jumping lanes. In contrast, Duterte’s world appears to have no dividing line between thought and action: They are one and the same, if we are to believe Amnesty International and Duterte’s own boasts that he restored order in Davao over the bodies of more than a thousand extrajudicial killings, and that he killed all the hostage takers in that terror-filled  prison riot in Davao City in 1989, during which the Australian missionary and other women hostages were gang-raped and murdered.
Antonio Trillanes IV, a vice presidential contender, when he related to reporters what Duterte had supposedly admitted: that he personally executed criminals at pointblank range, close enough for their brains to splatter on his pants. Fed up with their unfulfilled lives in the destabilizing world of  excessive competition, inadequate pay, crass consumerism, dehumanizing traffic gridlock, pervasive corruption, mass poverty and unchecked lawlessness, many Filipinos have, in desperation, come to see Duterte as the  savior and solution to the nation’s problems. While it’s true that Filipino millennials have no memory of the massive plunder and destroyed lives during martial law, there are millions alive who do. The history of violence from ancient to modern times comprises a lethal trajectory of blood and gore, at the cost of mostly innocent lives. That’s doable only if he turns the nation into a garrison state and every barangay into an extension of Davao’s vigilante justice system.
She has the equanimity and proven discernment to negotiate for peace in Mindanao and to enhance relations with our neighbors in the region. She respects democratic institutions and the rule of law, and is committed to combating crime and corruption, even as she values civil rights and due process. The participants committed “to advance equality in rights, status and opportunity among the country’s diverse peoples, and to eliminate what stands in the way of realizing this goal.” With the Magna Carta of Women as the overarching framework, they pledged to review and improve existing laws and proposed legislations on women’s rights. She delivered speeches and was invited by different ministries to be briefed on foreign affairs, education, law and social development.
She has been committed to inclusive growth, promotion of moral values in schools, and increasing the size of the middle class. Their focus on the law as a litmus test for a Christian vote might have left little room for reflective discernment on the nation’s complex choices. His foul mouth has slashed open a vein of malevolence running through a segment of his supporters, who have been spewing bloody insult and obscenity all over the Internet at other presidential candidates and at his critics.
Amado Picardal, executive secretary of the Committee on Basic Ecclesial Communities of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines, the DDS is said to have killed 1,424 people in Duterte’s paradigmatic peace-and-order paradise, Davao City, since 1998.
In March 2015, the Pope wrote the president of the International Commission Against the Death Penalty that “capital punishment,” whether sanctioned by law or in the form of DDS-style extrajudicial executions, “is unacceptable, however serious the condemned’s crime may have been. But an Internet search of some of the nation’s main prolife websites has yielded little to indicate that prolife groups were using this opportunity. Eric Manalang criticizes Duterte’s disrespect for the Pope, his womanizing and his support of gay marriage, but he does not mention the DDS.
Duterte is not listed; he was not a lawmaker in 2012 (although a 2015 Rappler article states he has given Davaoenos cash incentives for having vasectomies and ligations).
But there is yet time for them to move on from the RH Law (for now), and to confront the greater challenge posed by a Duterte presidency to life, to democracy, and to our national soul.
Who are we at this time to compel the Court to decide immediately on the merit or demerit of Poe’s citizenship and residency?
Originally from Cabanatuan City, my wife and I, both public school teachers, migrated to Quezon City in 1971 in search of the proverbial greener pasture. The place now also hosts an overpopulated informal settlement that blares out on-and-off nuisance music, er, noise.
It behooves the Quezon City’s incoming and succeeding administrations to attend to and address the problems and concerns of these and other similarly situated communities and give them back the peaceful and orderly environment, thereby making them wholesome and more livable. Only a small slice of that, however, leverages on the power of digital to invigorate and drive their businesses.
By helping usher more of these businesses into the digital age, TechIsland hopes for a healthy and sustainable economic growth for the country. This would mark the first time that TechIsland would be open to the general public, instead of a strictly invitational affair. Alberto, PLDT EVP, Head of Enterprise and International and Carrier Business (EICB) and ePLDT CEO, who introduced the key speakers of the event.
Damarillo presented MarketBuilder, a marketing tool that harnesses big data to let businesses connect to their customers in a more relevant way. Jayme is the Chairman – make that “Chairmom” – and CEO of advertising agency DENTSU Jayme Syfu. Uber presents itself as a solution that gets more cars and drivers off the road, allowing its users to reclaim lost productivity and time instead of being stuck in traffic. Tan spoke about the power of discovery in a feed economy and the importance of a message to have “thumbstopping” power. This would be the first time that the convention went beyond speaking to an organization’s IT practitioners and be inclusive of other departments. The Navigator track focused on marketers, highlighting digital trends and effective cases of marketing activations. Nothing like a good send-off to the entrepreneurs with newfound tools and knowledge to grow and empower their businesses.
As more micro, small and medium enterprises take their business digital, PLDT Smart SME Nation will continue to help nurture and support what is the undisputed backbone of the country’s economy, a noble effort and tradition that wants to see this country’s businesses truly challenge, change and conquer. For natural gas, we have six power plants that need to be fed so do we have a policy on liquefied natural gas (LNG) and so on? However, no DOE secretary has set a firm energy mix policy or expressed categorically how much of each technology would be accommodated for future built-outs through the granting of permits or incentives. Following historical tendencies, the market should find some support near 7,000 level as election nears. Can a presidential candidate cause the market to fall because investors are jittery on how the new president will handle the economy? Three out of the past four presidential elections showed that the market has lost an average of 3.6 percent one week prior to elections.
There are also many political uncertainties that can happen from Election Day up to the proclamation of the new President. When risk premium is high, the required rate of return on investments in stocks will also be high, which could depress share prices. Yes, it's going through it's "boutique salon" stage right now, but people have been "floating" and even installing floating chambers in their homes for the last 20 years. But seriously, it's hard to decide which one is my favorite prize because quite frankly, I own them all.
We often take for granted the wonderful parks and historical sights within the region we live in. A few years ago The New York Times reported that some women were studio-hopping, taking more than 1 class a day to get their fix. It wasn't an overnight kind of relief, but the pain did completely go away about a day and half later.
I know youa€™ve probably heard of many fitness trackers already but this one is the tracker of all trackers. 8 years ago I left a career in corporate advertising to pursue my dream of reporting on health & fitness.
Ita€™s risky business juggling a lot in your life, but for me personally, I live for the thrill! I reached out to Hourglass Angel (the most well-known waist training seller online) to see if I could try their products and, of course, come to my own conclusion.
Again, not complaining as worse things have happened in my life, but as all wavy and curly-haired girls know, learning how to style curls is freakin' hard! Louis at The Arch so that Special Olympics athletes from my hometown can train, compete and enjoy a lifetime of their own thrills. BUT, I'm never as exposed to the world of fashion and the mind-blowing creations debuting on runways as I am during NYFW. She presented her "Search Don't Rescue" collection, which really appealed to me because I'm a huge fan of monochromatic, flowy dresses and pairings. Graffiti Beasts leggings feature the art of real street artists whose art can be seen on the streets of Lisbon, Barcelona, Milan, New York City and many more cities across the world. Michelle Austin, founder of the Fluidity Barre, was one of her students among others like Exhale founder Fred Devito, who I interviewed HERE. You will most likely discover parts of your body that you never knew were possible to work out or even move.
They have a wayfarer style (which is so classic that they're always IN) and they're made with polarized, UV400 protection lenses.
If you set a level of expectation, they will ALWAYS look forward to your gifts and rave about them in conversation. Let me guess, you know how to break a sweat but you also look forward to showing off how well you clean up and glow like a pro.
Check it out because I go into detail about why these skincare products should be in your summer gym bag STAT! This is the yearly event where yogis come together right smack in the middle of Times Square to celebrate the day the sun is at its highest position in the sky for the longest period of time. The tracker itself is a black shiny oval shaped piece that clips into a metal slip-on bracelet. But what you're paying for is great technology, an app that doesn't baffle you but inspires you and a piece of jewelry that looks good with anything you wear. A really astounding young lady and go-getter herself, Katya Meyers, created the interview series to share what happens behind the scenes in the lives of successful health & wellness oriented professionals. Spirit Junkie and the book A Return To Love by Marianne Williamson really helped open her mind and heart to all the amazing possibilities that can happen when someone chooses love over fear. If you know of a case that shoud be on this list, please add it to the comments section below with a direct link. It's a 5 day adventure and my sources are telling me that there will be 130 of the most famous Zumba instructors onboard including Beto Perez himself. I used to think of her as just my mom without fully worshipping everything she's accomplished. They're competing in the Volvo Ocean Race, which is considered to be the toughest sailing race in the world. It's a long trip (9 months at sea!) and it's a tremendous challenge for these women, requiring massive teamwork and goal-setting. Of course, you have to train consistently, eat right and get plenty of sleep and hydration. I teamed up with Chrissy's and my bestie, Michelle from YoGoGirls, to bring you these playful and sporty looks.
I'm 5'2" with muscular legs and I loved the way these Polka Dot Socks almost seemed to lengthen my legs.
Aging lines, sun damage and sagging are major concerns of mine, and I'd like to do the most I can to prevent the visible aging process from coming on faster than it needs to. Because aluminum prevents our underarms from stinking by blocking sweat from escaping through our pores onto the surface of the skin. Since May of 2009, I've been on a mission to take everything I learned and experienced from my advertising career and turn into something truly positive that will help women embrace health & wellness. I also wanted to take a moment to tell all of you that I'm always here to answer your questions about health & wellness so feel free to contact me.
Speaking of sweet, Valentine's Day reared its rosy head and lured me into a chocolate shop last week.
As I admired the glossy bonbons (they're literally lacquered with a sugary coating and some are topped with edible gold leaf) my mouth was watering insatiably. Yoga's the one activity where even though you're not talking, you're still connecting with each other while on your mats. Ang tao tataya sa kung sino talaga ang kursonada nila, hindi kung sino lang ang nagkataong llamado o dehado sa particular na pagkakataon ng halalan,” Escudero added. The company stresses that the bombings only serve to increase the burden of the public, which must suffer through service interruptions when towers are bombed,” Alabanza said in a statement. There have been a few genuine escapes, and unrelenting military pressure has been proven to loosen the group’s grip on some of its captives. Holding the UAAP volleyball competitions at the Mall of Asia and Araneta is a calculated risk considering that you need at least 15,000 spectators to say the event was well attended.  I was told we hit 22,000 at the championship volleyball game last Saturday.
Entire clans trooped in to watch—from grandparents to young kids, everybody trying to outdo each other with their cheering antics. One of UP’s faculty members told me that a woman from Nueva Ecija had ordered fried chicken take-aways for all our team members.
I like the way volleyballs fly upwards, staying a split of a second in the air then making a slow descent where everyone holds their breath, wondering which player will catch and serve. And men can only do the fist bump, but at last Saturday’s game, I saw two of the women players jumping into the air, then wiggling their hips, followed by a bump, and not with their fists. As the game built up, they would wiggle too, but not bump—and, yes, they did hug each other when the game ended in victory for them. This was done with the use of improved designs for more upscale bags and purses whose profits would give the communities greater profit margins for their labor. She then organized the artisans and began marketing the products first by word of mouth and then through stand-alone stores. But even if certain “unpalatables” win the vote, hope remains, and one such manifestation is the existence and flourishing of enterprises like R2R that prove joy and glory can survive even the most sorrowful mysteries.
While historians lament the loss of the many rare books and archival documents that perished with the libraries and archives in Intramuros during the Battle of Manila in 1945, more traces of our history await the diligent researcher in Spain, Mexico, the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Japan and many other places that conserve Philippine historical and ethnographic material. With Marcos I have spent many nights surfing the website of the historian of the US Department of State for declassified documents that comprise the US Foreign Relations Series. 20, 1959 provides an assessment of the 1959 midterm elections where eight Senate seats and positions in 54 provinces and 31 chartered cities were contested. However, it is apparent that the voters, doubtless including many who accepted NP favors, cast their ballots for the NP man only when they felt he was not identified with Garcia. Together, this ABC mass of seething humanity is building up into an unstoppable tsunami—unless it self-destructs before Election Day. Poe’s Gobyernong May Puso affirms that gender equality is a critical driver of development. In November 2014, the Singapore government awarded her the prestigious Lee Kuan Yew Exchange Fellowship “for her track record and extraordinary potential to contribute to the development of the Philippines.” It is notable that the Asean country known worldwide for its law and order and one of the cleanest and most competent governments in the world has recognized Poe for her leadership.
She also visited the Corruption Prevention and Investigation Bureau, Central Narcotics Bureau, Housing Development Board, as well as a primary school and the Institute of Technical Education College. A member of the 1986 Constitutional Commission, he sponsored the provisions on education and children’s rights and cosponsored the rights of women, social justice and human rights, right to information, and an independent foreign policy. But at least they advanced a politics of principle in a political culture based on patronage and popularity. This contradiction is lost on Duterte’s most devoted supporters, particularly those who believe so fervently in his promised land of peace and order—such that they are willing to wish rape and death upon his critics.
Just focus on his promise to get rid of the criminals and the drug problem in the country the way he did it in Davao?
Meanwhile, I will focus in helping Leni Robredo, the only one whom I believe has the servant heart among all the other candidates for vice president. Grace Poe is a political issue especially in this season of elections, given the fact that the issue popped up only when Poe was topping the list of presidentiables in every survey on voter preferences. In the first place, the independent Senate Electoral Tribunal, which is the proper venue for the complaint, had earlier decided in favor of Poe. At the time, our place was very peaceful and orderly; it was then a vast grassy savannah where carabaos, cows, goats and other grass-eating animals loved to graze and loiter. Unruly children, and idle teenagers sometimes engage in a rumble with outsiders, including stray dogs from the cramped settlement, thus disturbing the tranquility of our place and defiling the environment.
Because of the continuing cloud of dust from gravel and sand and other debris that damaged our houses, the affected residents filed a complaint against the building owner, the contractor and certain officials of the concerned City Hall department. Then and only then, can we give meaning and credence to the following words of the late President Manuel L.
Alberto emphasized that PLDT has evolved from being a long distance telephone provider and is now well on its way to becoming the biggest tech company in the country.
The solution drills deep into customer demographics, behavior and geolocation to deliver a message to the people who would be most responsive.
Jayme spoke about how technology and innovation can help create messages that speak to the heart and provide genuine relevance to the lives of everyday people. Each track would be powered by digital business solutions presented by PLDT Smart SME Nation and its partners. The Trader sessions spoke to people in finance and procurement, including talks on new fintech solutions. Consunji said that deregulation worked for the energy industry and the government must set what the future direction was going to be. If the law of averages were to be followed, the market must be trading at least at 7,028 level by next week.
Such market behavior could not be due to any presidential personality but a normal market course as investors take a wait-and-see mode pending the outcome of the elections. This kind of uncertainties represents risks to the investor because it can affect market confidence, which may hurt stock prices later on. The category continues to evolve and expand beyond the fitness tracker we're all familiar with. The prizes I pick for each Booya Fitness challenge are based on my favorite products and gear that I've personally test out for you. I only ate half the bun and the wonderful part about the meal is that the portions are JUST RIGHT.


I already have enough gadgets and gizmos in my life that if I'm going to add something to the mix, it better do something spectacular. Let's just say I ended up falling in love with waist training, which is something I really didn't expect. I made some amazing stopsa€”this one was my favoritea€”and had a lot of time to think along the way. You essentially have to ask yourself whata€™s next in my lifea€¦what road will I take and where do I hope it will lead me? As a fitness trend expert, I never limit myself to just fitness events because EVERYTHING is fusing together these days. But yes, I have a FLAT approach to skincare that I want to share with you today that literally saves my life every time I travel.
Fact of my life: my toiletry bag + makeup bag + hair dryer and roundbrushes = most of the weight in my suitcase.
Ia€™m discovering new spots to work out, sharing my favorite places to unwind and scoring face-time with friends. Not only do they keep you from squinting but they'll save those precious eye corners of yours from sun damage. The 2 pieces together are minimal and sleek in away that far out-styles FitBit, UP by Jawbone, Nike+ Fuelband and similar black band trackers. The 2 metal bracelet finishes--Midnight Purple and Brushed Gold--blend exceptionally well with silver and gold tone jewelry. I'm honored to be a part of her series and my interview is LIVE and ready to be heard by clicking RIGHT HERE.
My mom and I don't always agree on everything but she's been very supportive of my life choices and has taken great care of me throughout my life. It's going to be a fun springtime evening social, if you will, and a great chance to check out the evolution of LimeLight! Come join our healthy party with cocktails from SkinnyGirl and Juice Press, and wine sorbet from Frosae Wine Sorbae, which is basically FROZEN WINE! So I've put a little something together with a posh studio that's new to the area called Core3 Fitness. Hopefully they'll inspire you to get creative with something as simple and inexpensive as a pair of socks.
So, I did for a little bit but then over time I became empowered by how great my mid-30's felt. I can't perform magic tricks but I can wear Altchek MD's Daily Moisturizer made with SPF30, Ester C and Vitamin E.
The plus side is less sweat and stink but the downside is that antiperspirants prevent the human body from doing it's job, which is to rid itself of toxins. I thought I'd share with you what I've got on my desk today: the March issue of People Style Watch Magazine and my new favorite toy, a Ball Wide Mouth Mason Jar with a fruit infuser lid! It's one of the easiest invitations to extend because no one has time--including me--to workout and see their friends unless it's happening simultaneously. In this case, it's imperative that your mats are side by side so you can visually bond with your friend. The elections were seen both as an indicator of the power of the Garcia administration and the Nacionalista Party (NP) against the Liberal Party (LP), the splinter group led by Claro M.
She has the dignity and eloquence, as well as the global exposure, to represent our country in international conferences and state visits.
Good advice, but not the prophetic denunciation we might expect from one who once tried to exorcise Satan from an RH advocate. Her clear position that she’d prefer new faces in the next administration, regardless of party affiliation, is the kind of change our country needs.
The covert and true intention is not to question Poe’s citizenship and residency, but to stop her from running for president. The Engineer sessions dealt with the realities of software security in a threat-filled landscape. It's drastically changing these industries with more advanced fabrics, lighter and more funtional parts, more accurate tracking and motion sensors, and overall cooler customization.
Whether it's my boyfriend coming over to cook with me, my mom visiting from Missouri or my best friend coming to spend the weekend with me to play in New York City, I literally ALWAYS have a meal in the fridge for 2 that only takes 30-45 minutes to whip up. And can you blame them for not caring when they know new members are taking them for joyride? Since I'm the healthy one in my familia, they count on me to contribute an interesting veggie concoction that wows their taste buds. I caught the flu somewhere between rushing to shows and shaking hands with and hugging everyone.
I've been to a few of their events, but this year's New York Fashion Week 2015 showcase was one of my favorites. Fashion is going sporty on NYFW catwalks and tech is catering more than ever to wellness conscious users. Ia€™m doing it all in a 2015 Ford Explorer to celebrate Tri-State Forda€™s a€?Where To Now?a€? adventure and summer sweepstakes!
My products have to be effective, easy to apply, fast working and light (on my shoulder, not just my face!). It's challenging, modern, music-oriented, and doesn't follow all the yoga rules you're used to.
Most people won't even notice you're wearing a tracker because it looks like a fancy bangle.
The lotus flower is now bold, proud and sharp looking, which I personally think translates better to fitness and sport. I learned a lot from them about Team SCA's voyage, race conditions and day to day life at sea during this gorgeous afternoon spent sailing on the Hudson River. I've been running long distances since highschool and to this day I'm still discovering new tricks for a smoother run.
Going to the Big Island this past February was my 3rd time back to the wonderous state and I used a new online travel guide service called Localfu to navigate my way around like a local. Even my hunky Australian officemate who is the epitome of a guy's guy goes to SoulCycle and has a ClassPass acount.
Recto, and the Grand Alliance (GA) formed by people allied with the late President Ramon Magsaysay. She has been an erudite and principled stateswoman in the Senate and has been an advocate of protection of women’s rights, universal access to quality education, skills development and gainful employment for workers, expanding our middle class, freedom of information, and good governance. In this age of advanced military technology, a single missile is enough to decimate the entire population of a small country like ours.
Ironically, like the horrendous traffic gridlock bedeviling motorists on Edsa, the unwelcome development in our place was brought about by “unbridled population growth and progress,” as an observer puts it. The whole energy pie, so to speak, could grow further if the government would set signals on what technologies it would support, he said. As I get older, I realize how important it is to poke around and get the inside scoop instead of just taking things at face value. It's really amazing to see all the companies being born out of these kind of technological advancements. It's been a whirlwind of a month but I'm finally back at Mizzfit headquarters blogging about all my exciting Fall adventures.
Ia€™ve worked really hard to get where I am, but if you had asked me years ago whether Ia€™d be in the drivera€™s seat of my own business and reporting on womena€™s health, Ia€™d think you were nuts. I worry that I won't have what I need and as a frugalista, I don't want to buy what I already own while away from home.
Most importantly they have to feel good on and revitalize my skin, whether Ia€™m running to a workout or freshening up right after one.
It's simply amazing, so I was thrilled to see her join what has become a yogi cult favorite summer event. But when it comes to fitness--my area of expertise--there's no fooling me or anyone else for that matter. She told me to choose my deodorant wisely because many popular brands pose health risks, especially to women. Check me out in Lacroix Sparkling Water's new campaign called "Start A Healthy Relationship", which can be seen on the Lacroix website and in several fitness & health publications like Oxygen Magazine. Grace Poe was also lagging behind Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, who maintained a double-digit lead over rivals for the presidency. She does her homework, has demonstrated a fresh outlook and good judgment, and has no political baggage.
So I've whipped out a larger magnifying glass (aka camera and corresponding film team) and started doing a lot more poking around than usual. I take a lot of criticism for being an outspoken Republican (I'm NOT anti-gay marriage or pro-life though), for wearing waist trainers and even for making a living off of social media. That being said, I was pretty excited to see which brands would be making their debut at TechStyleNYC!
If you live on the West Coast, keep reading because I have details on an amazing fit event happening out there as well.
They either burnt out or broke after 1 drop and then it was back to the Apple store for a new one.
Find out what's in store for you and please check out this Facebook Invitation (where I'd love for you to RSVP). I want you to be informed on all the possibilities of fitness instead of believing bogus stories that discourage you.
My aunt is no stranger to disease as a survivor of Melanoma tumors and having recently lost her beloved husband to Esophageal cancer, so I decided to take heed and do a little research of my own.
Had the order been issued earlier or, better still, at the start of the construction, the damage to our homes could have been avoided and so with our fear engendered by the presence of that monster building in our surroundings. Even if it doesn't (and if so, I'm jealous that you've mastered being a sane packer), I think this tip might come in handy. Many thanks to Altchek MD for all the attention and for making my skin look so great at 36 years old.
I'm a hustler and a dreamer, which means I'm constantly working to grow my company and my career as a TV host.
I brought him to Your disciples, but they couldna€™t heal him.a€?A  Jesus replied, a€?You unbelieving and rebellious generation!
THESE VERY SAME ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES, WHO HAVE SWORN TO PROTECT AND SERVE, OUR COUNTRY, AND CITIZENS ,ARE BUT SOME, OF THE CORRUPT,GREEDY TRAITORS .ENGAGED IN THE TYRANNY AND TORTURE.
People are always judging but that's OK, I enjoy the path less traveled if it sparks my curiosity. Around the time I turned 12, my dad took me to get a "Mariah Carey" perm because I wanted Mariah's exact hair from her music video Someday. You'll eventually find yourself clicking on every square on his instagram profile much like I did. Ia€™m a sleeveless-outfit-kind-of-girl and my issue is finding a bra that makes the area where my underarm and side boob meet look shapely.
Ita€™s frustrating when you work out as much as I do to maintain an athletic physique, to look in the mirror and spot a bulge protruding from under your arm! I discovered there's a lot out there in the world of iPhone cases, and with a brand new iPhone 6 on my hands, I began to test.
Bring him here to Me.a€? Then Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him, and from that moment the boy was healed. So I reached out to him to express my fandom and whadayaknow, he's the nicest guy on earth!
Then the disciples approached Jesus privately and said, a€?Why couldna€™t we drive it out?a€? a€?Because of your little faith,a€? He told them.
However, this kind does not come out except by prayer and fasting.a€?This same story is repeated in Mark Chapter 9, vs. I was there for forty days and forty nights, all that time I ate no food and drank no water. The Lord gave me the two tablets on which God had written with his own finger all the words he had spoken to you from the heart of the fire when you were assembled at the mountain. At the end of the forty days and nights, the Lord handed me the two stone tablets inscribed with the words of the covenant.Matthew Chapter 4, vs. 1-2 (NLT): Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil.
16-18 (NLT): And when you fast, dona€™t make it obvious, as the hypocrites do, for they try to look miserable and disheveled so people will admire them for their fasting.
Then no one will notice that you are fasting, except your Father, who knows what you do in private. As you can see above: Demons are cast out, the Holy Spirit speaks, Moses received the Ten Commandments, and Jesus had the strength to overcome Satana€™s temptations.
It can strengthen our faith and get difficult prayers answered.There are different types of fasting. We are trying this for 21 days to achieve some answers from God and help get some desperate and difficult prayers answered. The school district has moved to a biometric identification program, saying students will no longer have to use an ID card to buy lunch.A  BIOMETRICS TO TRACK YOUR KIDS!!!!!i»?i»?A TARGETED INDIVIDUALS, THE GREEDY CRIMINALS ARE NOW CONDONING THEIR TECH! Fasting, praying, and special giving during the first month of the year sets the tone for the rest of the year. Fasting should be done in combination with things that can increase your faith, wisdom, and hearing from the Lord.
Read a good Christian book, read Goda€™s Word in the Bible, listen with praise and worship to Christian music, and of course pray. Thought for the week:A  For more advice and understanding read a€“ a€?Fastinga€? by Jentezen Franklin. 22-24: The Lord God used the rib of the man to make a woman, and then he brought the woman to the man. And the man said, a€?Now, this is someone whose bones came from my bones, whose body came from my body. 13: If a man has sexual relations with another man as a man does with a woman, these two men have done a hateful sin. Most are basically good people that give to charities, help with the homeless, do good deeds and are friendly and nice to people.
There are gay celebrities on TV that do wonderful works of mercy and charity for other people. However, if you are gay and dona€™t turn from your present life style and accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior you will go to the pool of fire (Hell). Yes, there is such a place and it is for eternity.A  If you intend to do it a€?somedaya€™, I hope you dona€™t get hit by a car and die before that happens. He wrote the rule book (the Bible) and it is expressed in it several times that he feels the punishment for this is death. We are all sinners in one way or another and must try hard to turn from our former self before we knew Jesus as our Lord. To the ones who say it is genetic or upbringing, I offer this: Alcoholism can be passed down through genes and wife-beating can be passed down through upbringing. God is the highest authority, how do you think he will judge according to the Ten Commandments and his Word in the Bible? Paul Weindling, history of medicine professor at Oxford Brookes University, describes his search for the lost victims of Nazi experiments. Hook up with a good faith based organization like a€?Food for the Poora€? or a€?World Visiona€? and help these people out. The chairman of the board at ESL a€” then proprietor of the desert wasteland in Nevada known as a€?Area 51a€? a€” was William Perry, who would be appointed secretary of defense several years later. God Bless.====================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 1-21-2010. EUCACH.ORG PanelIn a 2-hour wide-ranging Panel with Alfred Lambremont Webre on the Transhumanist Agenda, Magnus Olsson, Dr. Henning Witte, and Melanie Vritschan, three experts from the European Coalition Against Covert Harassment, revealed recent technological advances in human robotization and nano implant technologies, and an acceleration of what Melanie Vritschan characterized as a a€?global enslavement programa€?.Shift from electromagnetic to scalar wavesThese technologies have now shifted from electromagnetic wave to scalar waves and use super quantum computers in the quantum cloud to control a€?pipesa€? a reference to the brains of humans that have been taken over via DNA, via implants that can be breathed can breach the blood-brain barrier and then controlled via scalar waved on a super-grid. We run the risk of becoming weaker when we stay at home, so gradually we wona€™t even notice. Eventually, such 'subvocal speech' systems could be used in spacesuits, in noisy places like airport towers to capture air-traffic controller commands, or even in traditional voice-recognition programs to increase accuracy, according to NASA scientists."What is analyzed is silent, or sub auditory, speech, such as when a person silently reads or talks to himself," said Chuck Jorgensen, a scientist whose team is developing silent, subvocal speech recognition at NASA Ames Research Center in California's Silicon Valley. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.a€? Notice it says he is looking for someone, like a lion does. We numbered the columns and rows, and we could identify each letter with a pair of single-digit numbers," Jorgensen said. People in noisy conditions could use the system when privacy is needed, such as during telephone conversations on buses or trains, according to scientists."An expanded muscle-control system could help injured astronauts control machines. If an astronaut is suffering from muscle weakness due to a long stint in microgravity, the astronaut could send signals to software that would assist with landings on Mars or the Earth, for example," Jorgensen explained. These are processed to remove noise, and then we process them to see useful parts of the signals to show one word from another," Jorgensen said.After the signals are amplified, computer software 'reads' the signals to recognize each word and sound.
They need Christian friends and other Christian adults if they are to survive in this world. Persevere in them, because if you do, you will save both yourself and your hearers.a€?7 Because we need the help of good people.
Pastors cannot serve full-time, a building cannot be purchased, missionaries will not be sent out, ministries to the community wona€™t be fulfilled, and the lost wona€™t be saved. And how can they preach unless they are sent?a€?10 Because God says we should go to church regularly. Our Research and Development Division has been in contact with the Federal Bureau of Prisons, the California Department of Corrections, the Texas Department of Public Safety, and the Massachusetts Department of Correction to run limited trials of the 2020 neural chip implant. We have established representatives of our interests in both management and institutional level positions within these departments.
Federal regulations do not yet permit testing of implants on prisoners, but we have entered nto contractual agreements with privatized health care professionals and specified correctional personnel to do limited testing of our products. We need, however, to expand our testing to research how effective the 2020 neural chip implant performs in those identified as the most aggressive in our society. In California, several prisoners were identified as members of the security threat group, EME, or Mexican Mafia. They were brought to the health services unit at Pelican Bay and tranquilized with advanced sedatives developed by our Cambridge,Massachussetts laboratories.
The results of implants on 8 prisoners yielded the following results: a€?Implants served as surveillance monitoring device for threat group activity. 30-31: And then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will morn, and they will see the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. And he will send out his angels with a trumpet blast, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other. 10: But the day of the Lord will come like a thief, and then the heavens will pass away with a mighty roar and the elements will be dissolved by fire, and the earth and every thing done on it will be found out. However, during that period substantial data was gathered by our research and development team which suggests that the implants exceed expected results. One of the major concerns of Security and the R & D team was that the test subject would discover the chemial imbalance during the initial adjustment period and the test would have to be scurbbed.
However, due to advanced technological developments in the sedatives administered, the 48 hour adjustment period can be attributed t prescription medication given to the test subjects after the implant procedure. One of the concerns raised by R & D was the cause of the bleeding and how to eliminate that problem. Unexplained bleeding might cause the subject to inquire further about his "routine" visit to the infirmary or health care facility. 36-43: But of that day and hour no one knows, neither the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but the Father alone. Security officials now know several strategies employed by the EME that facilitate the transmission of illegal drugs and weapons into their correctional facilities.
One intelligence officier remarked that while they cannot use the informaiton that have in a court of law that they now know who to watch and what outside "connections" they have. In (those) days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, up to the day that Noah entered the ark.
The prison at Soledad is now considering transferring three subjects to Vacaville wher we have ongoing implant reserach. Our technicians have promised that they can do three 2020 neural chip implants in less than an hour.
Soledad officials hope to collect information from the trio to bring a 14 month investigation into drug trafficking by correctional officers to a close.
Essentially, the implants make the unsuspecting prisoner a walking-talking recorder of every event he comes into contact with. There are only five intelligence officers and the Commisoner of Corrections who actually know the full scope of the implant testing. In Massachusetts, the Department of Corrections has already entered into high level discussion about releasing certain offenders to the community with the 2020 neural chip implants. Our people are not altogether against the idea, however, attorneys for Intelli-Connection have advised against implant technology outside strick control settings.
Be sure of this: if the master of the house had known the hour of the night when the thief was coming, he would have stayed awake and not let his house be broken into.
So too you also must be prepared, for at an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come. While we have a strong lobby in the Congress and various state legislatures favoring our product, we must proceed with the utmost caution on uncontrolled use of the 2020 neural chip. If the chip were discovered in use not authorized by law and the procedure traced to us we could not endure for long the resulting publicity and liability payments.
Massachusetts officials have developed an intelligence branch from their Fugitive Task Force Squad that would do limited test runs under tight controls with the pre-release subjects.
Correctons officials have dubbed these poetnetial test subjects "the insurance group." (the name derives from the concept that the 2020 implant insures compliance with the law and allows officials to detect misconduct or violations without question) A retired police detective from Charlestown, Massachusetts, now with the intelligence unit has asked us to consider using the 2020 neural chip on hard core felons suspected of bank and armored car robbery.
He stated, "Charlestown would never be the same, we'd finally know what was happening before they knew what was happening." We will continue to explore community uses of the 2020 chip, but our company rep will be attached to all law enforcement operations with an extraction crrew that can be on-site in 2 hours from anywhere at anytime.
Pilots vanish, drivers vanish, wives vanish, neighbors vanish, and it is a world wide supernatural event that happens at the exact same time. We have an Intelli-Connection discussion group who is meeting with the Director of Security at Florence, Colorado's federal super maximum security unit. The initial discussions with the Director have been promising and we hope to have an R & D unit at this important facilitly within the next six months. There are no second chances of dropping to your knees and asking for forgiveness because it comes and goes in a blink of an eye. Wars, Nation against Nation, famines, earthquakes, natural disasters, and a sin loving generation.
I always interpreted the a€?He will come like a thief in the nighta€? as have a duel meaning.
Some people know in advance when they will die and they, believe it or not, are the lucky ones. Napolitano insisted that the department was not planning on engaging in any form of ideological profiling.
Hint: It is hot, miserable, people are gnashing their teeth and screaming, and your caretaker has horns --------- hhmmmmmm.
However, if you have accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior and turned your life around you will be going somewhere that is truly pure love. If I am wrong, then worms get me just like you but if I am right I live in love and you dona€™t. I just dona€™t know where people get their ideas from because the Bible tells it like I do. Also, it is also true that before Jesus came to the earth as a man, that all the pagan nations were defeated by Goda€™s people the Israelites. Why ---- because the Israelites worshiped the only God there is and the pagans worshiped false ones. A PS:A  Hope youa€™re not on one of those planes where the Pilot is a follower of Christ when the Rapture comes.
I will tell him face-to-face that we honor veterans at DHS and employ thousands across the department, up to and including the Deputy Secretary," Ms. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Steve Buyer of Indiana, the ranking Republican on the House Committee on Veterans' Affairs, called it "inconceivable" that the Obama administration would categorize veterans as a potential threat. I was impressed by the many many friends who came to offer condolences and said kind things about her. To go through life with so many people that call themselves your family around you is a tribute to the love that is shown and radiates from you. Some are acquaintances, some good acquaintances, others are friends and still others are good friends.
I think I need to add a new one that shows love beyond that of the latter a€“ it is family. Thought for the week:A  Happy Valentines Day !!!!!=============================================================================Pastor Pop-Pop 2-22-2010.
You see the fire trucks pull up and the fire men run from the trucks, get their ladders, hook up the hoses and then ------- sit down and take a coffee break.
Your company is told that there is a mother and two children screaming for help from the third floor and they are close to being consumed by the flames. You and your men run over to see what instructions he has but he presents all of you with some Coffee and doughnuts. All of us know of people, friends, and family that have not accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior and are not saved. They are like the family in the house.A  Because of pride, fear, or some other human emotion, we either do not share the Word with them or are not persistent with it to get them saved. The people we know then end up dying either naturally or prematurely in an accident and end up burning in the ever lasting flames of Hell. 18-20: And Jesus came and said to them, a€?All authority on heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.
There were actually two letters that I have combined and edited to eliminate the womana€™s identity.
It is offered here as another a€?building blocka€? about evangelizing and spreading Goda€™s will. I agree that we are all called to share the gospel with others and that we often fall short of that. The Holy Spirit is the one who draws them, ("No one can come to me unless the Father who sent Me draws him" John 6:44) convicts them and makes them see that they are sinners.
People are drawn to God in us when they see something about us that they dona€™t have and they are made thirsty for. But they all have heard the truth many times and they refuse to acknowledge that they are sinners in need of a rescue. My part is to pray for them, live my life for Jesus (let my light shine) and share the truths of the gospel when there is an opening to do so. It took many years, but I am at peace knowing that if they die without knowing Jesus therefore spending eternity in hell, that it was their choice. Another interesting fact is that we have different witnessing styles and people respond to different styles of witnessing. But perfect love casts out fear" 1 John 4:18) To love others more than yourself and to know that without Christ they will spend all eternity separated from Him.
When I go on mission trips, I pray for the hearts of the people that God is going to put onto my path and I pray that God would give me His eyes to see them as He sees them and His heart to love them as He loves them, and His words to speak to them. Although it is debated if they are actually God speaking, they are recognized by most as books that are still good to teach from. Still others like the book of Sirach which is used a lot by the Catholic church brings question into mind that it may have been eliminated by Martin Luther just as a statement to his rebellious nature within that church. He even wanted to eliminate other books including the book of Revelation but, as history records, -- cooler minds prevailed. 60: Then all the people shouted and praised God, who saves those who put their trust in Him. Someone had a dream that as the soldier drew back to hit Christ that he grabbed the soldiers arm.
As they talked and discussed, Jesus himself drew near and walked along with them;Mark 16, vs.
The doors were locked, but Jesus came and stood among them and said, a€?Pease be with youa€?. A Jesus also appeared to 500 others, Saul (whom later became Paul), and to his disciples again when he rose up and ascended into Heaven. Since Biblical times the tradition that the Roman Emperor Domitian ordered that the Apostle John be executed by throwing him into a cauldron of boiling oil has been widely held.
