TARLAC CITY—Senator Grace Poe and some of her senatorial bets returned to northern Luzon on Monday to campaign in Tarlac and Nueva Ecija provinces. They started their sortie in Tarlac City in the morning with a motorcade from Tarlac Cathedral to Diwa Convention Center, where they will hold a mini-rally. After the mini-rally, they will have lunch with Nationalist People’s Coalition leaders. In the afternoon, Poe and the senatorial bets will be in Nueva Ecija to attend a groundbreaking in Munoz and hold another motorcade to San Jose. They will hold two mini-rallies in the afternoon, one at West Central School in San Jose and another at the Guimba Municipal Gym.
President Benigno Aquino III visited the Iglesia ni Cristo (INC) headquarters on Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City on Monday morning. A well-placed source earlier confirmed to Inquirer that Aquino was in a closed-door meeting with INC Executive Minister Eduardo Manalo. Aquino, during an ambush interview after the meeting, said he thanked the INC for its support for his administration. He said he also shared with Manalo his vision for the Philippines after he steps down from office. Another source earlier told Inquirer that Aquino asked INC leaders to carefully weigh their endorsement because the future of the country is at stake. The visit is not included in the President’s schedule for the day, which was released to media on Sunday evening. Earlier reports said the INC is set to support election survey frontrunner Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte. Despite Aquino’s endorsement of former secretary Mar Roxas, there has been no talk of support for the Liberal Party’s standard bearer.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign stop at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, Sunday, May 1, 2016, in Fort Wayne, Ind. WASHINGTON—Donald Trump hit out hard at Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz Sunday, sounding unapologetic two days before a key primary in Indiana he says will decide the Republican presidential race.
A new poll ahead of the winner-take-all vote Tuesday put the Republican frontrunner far in front of Cruz, who is hoping the Midwestern state will act as a Trump firewall. The Vermont senator who calls himself a Democratic socialist wasn’t throwing in the towel, however. At a news conference in Washington, Sanders appealed to hundreds of so-called superdelegates in a bid to snatch the nomination.
The survey gave him 49 percent of likely Republican primary voters, followed by 34 percent for Cruz and 13 percent for the third-place candidate, Ohio Governor John Kasich.
Although Trump has beamed with confidence at his Indiana rallies, the GOP battle is going down to the wire. The debate over Trump is focused on whether he can win a majority of the 2,472 delegates who choose the nominee at the Republican convention in July.
Should he reach the magic number of 1,237, the nomination is his because nearly all delegates are bound to vote for their candidate in the first round.
If Trump falls short before the convention, Cruz hopes to snatch the nomination on a second ballot when most delegates become free to vote for whomever they choose.
Trump currently has 1,002 delegates, compared to 572 for Cruz and 157 for Kasich, according to a CNN tally. Cruz evaded questions about whether he would bow out of the Republican contest if he loses in Indiana. Several cars remain overturned after a CSX freight train derailed in Washington on Sunday, May 1, 2016.
Mayor Muriel Bowser said no trains will be running on the tracks Monday and CSX couldn’t say how long the cleanup might take. Sodium hydroxide, also known as corrosive lye, is a chemical that can irritate and burn the skin and eyes. Officials found that another derailed car had been leaking non-hazardous calcium chloride, CSX said. It was not immediately clear what caused the derailment of the train, which was heading to Hamlet, North Carolina, from Cumberland, Maryland. Crews were inspecting the tracks, which are used by CSX, the MARC commuter rail system and Amtrak.
MARC officials said commuters should expect major services disruptions on the Brunswick Line Monday. The Red Line’s Rhode Island Station was also closed and Metro was reporting delays along that line. Nellum said his girlfriend tried to leave the area and was told to stay put, but she eventually found a way out. The CSX train had three locomotives and 175 cars, including 94 that were loaded with mixed freight, and 81 that were empty. COTABATO CITY — A dentist from Cagayan de Oro City has refuted reports naming him as some sort of a dummy owner of properties linked by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV to the family of presidential candidate and Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte. MANILA — A jobless man ended behind bars after he pretended to be his uncle and attempted to fool a bank into issuing credit cards to him in his uncle’s name. Joseph Nicol Ong, 43, was arrested in an entrapment operation in Paranaque City after presenting fake IDs to claim the credit cards delivered to him but bearing the name of his uncle.
With the arrest of Ong, the Philippine National Police Anti-Cybercrime Group warned the public anew on identity theft, especially with the hacking and leak of data from the Commission on Elections website. Ong was arrested last Friday afternoon outside his uncle’s home in the Green Heights Subdivision after he waited for the bank messenger delivering the credit cards to him. His duplicity was busted by the Union Bank of the Philippines, which reported to the ACG an impostor who wanted to get access to the credit cards of their client, Ong’s uncle.
The impostor called the bank’s customer service and reported that he left his credit cards inside a cab.
The caller tried to pass himself off as his uncle, a businessman, during the positive identification procedure and even asked to update his contact information, such as his email address and cell phone number.
The bank, however, saw through the ruse and reported the attempt to the ACG, which set up an entrapment operation against the con artist. However, Ong was waiting outside his uncle’s house and claimed to be his uncle, presenting a driver’s license and voter’s ID, which bore his uncle’s data but the suspect’s own photograph. The suspect was arrested as he received the credit cards bearing his uncle’s name, Eleazar said.
Ong was charged for violating Republic Act 8484 or the Access Device Regulations Act, RA 10175 or the Cybercrime Prevention Act and the Revised Penal Code for falsifying documents. Eleazar pointed out that an individual or syndicate could gather a victim’s personal details, leaving the victim with a large debt, a negative credit history, and with legal implications. Internet users should be wary of e-mails claiming to be from financial institutions or other legitimate organizations, which ask the recipients to update their security details and password through a fake but authentic-looking website. Eleazar added that they have been coordinating with banks in beefing up their security systems and protocols to counter financial fraud. LOS ANGELES—Many Americans are taking to canvas and poster board this year to express their political thoughts through depictions—sometimes unflattering—of presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
Trump, the controversial billionaire who is leading the Republican Party nomination race and is known for his incendiary comments, has become the most popular subject among artists. New York artist Hansky unveiled in Manhattan one of the most blunt and critical depictions of the former reality TV star to date: Trump’s face incorporated into a pile of feces buzzed by flies. Known for disparaging remarks about Mexicans, Trump pinatas have been selling well for months both in the United States and Mexico. Other popular items in the Hispanic community are T-shirts and posters with the slogan “Donald eres un pendejo” (Donald you’re an asshole”) in large white letters on a black background along with a profile of Trump’s face.
The people behind “pendejo” art—popular in places like New York, Los Angeles and Miami—are Mexican businessmen who have been active in organizing anti-Trump rallies. Democratic Party front-runner Hillary Clinton’s depiction in popular art is likewise not positive. In one example, her face is printed on a cardboard pine freshener—the kind that dangles from the rear view mirror in cars—with the slogan “Hillary Stinks—Reeks of Scandal” can be found for sale in Los Angeles. WALK FOR MAR-LENI Presidential aspirant Mar Roxas greets his supporters after a unity walk for him and his running mate, Leni Robredo, on the Quezon City Hall parking grounds on Sunday. UNLESS Davao City Mayor Rodrigo “Digong” Duterte can explain how he earned his money and acquired his properties, the presumption under the law is his possessions are “ill-gotten wealth,” Liberal Party (LP) standard-bearer Mar Roxas said on Saturday.
Short of accusing his rival outright of corruption, the former interior secretary admonished the firebrand mayor for refusing to identify the source of his wealth. Duterte had P227.4 million in a joint account with daughter Sara at the Bank of Philippine Islands (BPI) branch on Julia Vargas Avenue in Pasig City in 2014, records of his bank transactions showed. On his 69th birthday on March 28, 2014, Duterte received seven deposits amounting to P193.7 million in his account at BPI Julia Vargas, according to Sen. Trillanes said the mayor did not declare the amount in his statement of assets and liabilities and net worth (SALN) for 2014, a ground for dismissal from government service. On Saturday, Duterte said he was willing to open his bank account transactions as far back as 20 years as he had nothing to hide, but on the condition that all his rivals would do the same. Shortly after arriving in Sorsogon City, the mayor was asked about Trillanes’ challenge for him to show the transaction history of his BPI accounts for the past nine years.
He also said he was willing to open “all transactions” in his account, adding it only contained about P17,000 and not P227.4 million as the senator claimed. Documents provided by Trillanes showed that transactions amounting to P2.4 billion in 17 accounts of Duterte in three banks, including the BPI Julia Vargas branch, were recorded from 2006 to 2015. Duterte first dismissed as mere fabrication Trillanes’ claim that he had P227.4 million at the BPI Julia Vargas branch. The mayor later said he had “less P200 million” in the BPI branch and that he did not declare it in his SALN because he had already spent it. The lawmaker is one of the prosecutors of the House of Representatives during the impeachment trial in 2012 of then Chief Justice Renato Corona. Also on Friday, Sara challenged Trillanes to file a case against her and her father so “we can answer properly.” She neither confirmed nor denied that she and her father had joint bank accounts. Roxas characterized the Davao mayor as a danger to the country’s well-being should he be elected President in May. Duterte’s popularity has surged in recent weeks in spite of being the target of attacks over a rape joke about an Australian missionary who was assaulted in a 1989 prison siege in Davao, as well as reports about his undeclared millions in hidden bank accounts.
President Aquino’s chosen presidential candidate implied that a Duterte presidency would be a step back to previous administrations whose leaders were embroiled in messy corruption scandals that sank the economy. THE PIONEER cohort of senior high school (SHS) students started enrollment nationwide today, a month earlier than the rest of the basic education students. Education Secretary  Armin Luistro, FSC, said the early enrollment would give his department time to make necessary adjustments should the number of Grade 11 students turn out much larger than the preregistration count in October last year.
All of their preparations, he said, have been based on the preregistration data, particularly those relating to school and track preferences of the students. The Inquirer ran the first part of this primer on Sunday to fill the gaps in information among parents, present and future SHS students, and the general public about the last two grades in the K-12 education reform. The SHS curriculum is made up of core subjects in eight learning areas that all SHS students will have to take, as well as applied and specialized track subjects which will be dictated by the track and the strand that a student chooses.
These are Oral Communication, Reading and Writing, Komunikasyon at Pananaliksik sa Wika at Kulturang Filipino, Pagbasa at Pagsusuri ng Iba’t Ibang Teksto Tungo sa Pananaliksik, 21st Century Literature from  the Philippines and the World, Contemporary Philippine Arts from the Regions, Media and Information Literacy, General Mathematics, Statistics and Probability, Earth and Life Science, Physical Science, Introduction to Philosophy of the Human Person, Physical Education and Health, Personal Development, and Understanding Culture, Society and Politics.  For the students under the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) strand, Earth Science replaces Earth and Life Science and Disaster Readiness and Risk Reduction replaces Physical Science. SHS tracks are specific areas of study much like college courses and they fall under four disciplines, namely, Academic, Technical-Vocational-Livelihood (TVL), Sports, and Arts & Design. The TVL track also has four strands: Home Economics (HE), Information and Communication Technology (ICT), Agri-Fishery Arts and Industrial Arts. Students should ask themselves this question: What do I want to do after high school graduation? The most flexible strand, according to Department of Education  (DepEd) Assistant Secretary Elvin T. Campaigns to encourage students to go into the STEM have not had salutary effects on incoming Grade 11 students.  Based on preregistration data, only 8 percent chose the STEM strand.
It is a misconception that the SHS curriculum is congested, according to  Uy.  Just like in Grades 1 to 6 and Grades 7 to 10,  there are eight subjects in Grades 11 and 12. Schools can only offer tracks where they can optimize their facilities and teaching resources as well as best meet the local community’s demands. The DepEd advises students and parents to weigh the possibilities and consider the consequences of changing tracks. The DepEd is hiring more than 36,000 teachers out of the 47,000 who applied to teach in SHS. For students with typical Filipino parents, the most compelling reason is that without the SHS diploma, they cannot be admitted to a university.
For students who must earn a living right after or even during SHS, more employment opportunities will await them for several reasons.
For students who are being groomed to run the family business or are interested in starting their own business, SHS offers an entrepreneurship subject that will give them the competencies to create a marketable product, design a business plan, understand manpower, materials and markets, among other things. WORKERS’ groups marked Labor Day on Sunday with marches and speeches lamenting poor wages, irregular jobs, risky workplaces, high cost of living, rising unemployment and inadequate social insurance.
Across the country, the call for a stop to the practice of contractualization or “endo” (end of contract) echoed. Amid the dire straits Filipino workers find themselves in,  Sentro ng mga Nagkakaisa at Progresibong Manggagawa warned against what it claimed to be the rise of a “new right” or neofascists in Philippine politics.
The group particularly voiced out its apprehension over front-runners Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte  and Sen. Malacanang quietly observed Labor Day, the last time under the term of President Aquino,  who steps down at the end of next month. Asked why the President did not hold any meeting with labor leaders on May 1 as he had done in the past, Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr.
At Rajah Sulayman Park in Manila’s Malate district, the Trade Union Congress of the Philippines (TUCP) said inclusive growth remained elusive for the labor sector because the mechanisms for it to flow down to the rank-and-file remained broken. Workers have complained that due to inflation, the purchasing power of the P481-daily minimum wage in Metro Manila has been reduced to P316, lower than the government’s estimate of P417 for food and nonfood needs. They also criticized the administration for rejecting income tax reduction, withdrawing government subsidy to the mass transport trains, vetoing an increase in social security pension, failing to stop the rising cost of electricity, and not doing enough to deal with the jobs-skills mismatch that has worsened unemployment and underemployment. Buhay na may Dignidad, also known as Dignidad, also called for an end to contract-only hiring.
From Quezon City, Dignidad ran up to Mendiola, bearing placards that urged the government to deal with issues besetting the labor force. By noon, the activists converged in Calamba for the rally for Calabarzon (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) workers. Led by the militant Pagkakaisa ng Manggagawa sa Timog Katagalugan-Kilusang Mayo Uno (Pamantik-KMU), the workers demanded higher minimum wages and an end to contractualization. On Panay Island, some 12,500 people joined the rallies, demanding jobs, higher wages, and an end to contractualization. Protesters in Iloilo, Aklan and Capiz provinces led by Bagong Alyansang Makabayan and  Kilusang Mayo Uno (KMU) challenged presidential candidates to ban contractualization if they get elected. In Iloilo City, about 5,000 people marched from four assembly points before converging at the Jaro District public plaza where a program was held. In Roxas City in Capiz, about 4,500 joined a rally at the provincial park and Plaza Bandstand.
In the capital town of Kalibo in Aklan, around 3,000 assembled from Crossing Banga and Numancia town before holding a rally at the Pastrana Park.
In Northern Mindanao, KMU led more than 2,000 workers, mostly from Misamis Oriental and Bukidnon, to a rally, calling on the government to give workers the right to security of tenure and wage increases. Tita Hadma, KMU regional spokesperson, said no one from the presidential candidates had committed to scrapping the contractualization. At the TUCP rally, Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas reiterated his commitment to put an end to endo. BURNING ISSUE Militants demanding higher wages and an end to labor contractualization burn President Aquino’s effigy during a Labor Day rally on Mendiola, Manila, on Sunday. Other presidential candidates also pledged to end the practice, aimed at avoiding paying workers benefits due them if they were regularized. Other labor groups said next week’s national and local elections could be an opportunity to find a way to solve the problems confronting the labor sector.
Mendoza said the TUCP and its allies in the Nagkaisa labor coalition were lobbying to make presidential candidates sign a contract detailing concrete steps in working out solutions to problems of Filipino workers and their families. The draft document calls for ending contractualization and enacting laws to boost security of tenure, across-the-board wage increase for all workers nationwide combined with appropriate tax reforms, subsidies and social transfers, and overhaul of the country’s wage-fixing mechanisms, beginning with the abolition of the regional wage boards to be subsumed under a national wage-setting office. The administration claim that it was successful in providing jobs to Filipinos was “all fiction,” said Leoncio Evasco Jr., national campaign manager of Duterte. Evasco said there were still some 11.2 million unemployed and underemployed Filipinos, a number that validated the lack of unemployment opportunities under the Aquino administration. But  Coloma said the workers were far better off under the Aquino administration than the previous one as it had created more jobs and granted them higher pay raises and tax benefits.
Daily minimum wages have increased to P228-P493 from P142-P414 in the previous administration, according to Coloma. The Philippine National Police said the country’s observance of Labor Day was generally peaceful.
A standoff between protesters and policemen was observed on Roxas Boulevard and United Nations Avenue, near the US Embassy. Those who joined the rallies in Ilocos Sur province and the cities of Cebu, General Santos, Baguio, Butuan and Masbate dispersed peacefully. THERE IS no denying that the economy posted unprecedented growth rates during the past six years of the Aquino administration. But we all know the downside: Economic growth has failed to trickle down to those sectors that need uplift the most.
The private sector has time and again reminded those in office, as well as those seeking the highest elective posts, what the economy needs to grow and how to make such growth benefit the low-income classes. The proposed roadmap, according to the PCCI, sums up what is needed to provide more jobs to Filipinos. Infrastructure—or the severe lack of it—will again be the foremost issue to be faced by the next administration. Agriculture, the sector that employs about a third of the population and where poverty incidence is highest, is another sector that has been neglected by both the present and past administrations. Manufacturing’s share in the economy also shrank in the past 30 years with the rise of cheap-labor countries like China. PCCI president George Barcelon observed, correctly, that all the presidentiables had the interest of the country at heart.
MY LAST column, “Six years in office, seven AFP chiefs,” triggered a number of phone calls to let me know that I had forgotten Gen. The next commander in chief must take a hard look at this situation and institute reforms that will provide fixed terms of office for the AFP chief of staff and the service commanders, and allow longer tours of duty for critical area commands. Last week, retired admiral Ramon Punzalan drove up to Purple Oven, a bakeshop on Temple Drive across from the Mormon Temple near Camp Aguinaldo. We need to amend the law so that the elderly can expect speedy action on their complaints as well as punishment for business firms not complying with the law. I have brought the matter to the attention of Foreign Affairs Undersecretary Rafael Seguis, who is in charge of overseas voting.
Father Junjun used to serve as parish priest at the National Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Quezon City.
A lot of folks were upset, unhappy, outraged and, among his supporters, saddened, by Davao Mayor Rodrigo Duterte’s brand of humor.
On Carly Fiorina, former CEO of Hewlett Packard, early contender for the GOP nomination and now the choice of his opponent Sen. On Megyn Kelly, Fox News talk show host—“She had blood coming out of her wherever” (a reference to the menstrual period) when she was grilling him on his history of insulting women.
It should come as no surprise that recent CNN polls show that 73 percent of American women have a negative view of Trump.  The same holds true for African-Americans, Latinos, and young voters. Cruz is hoping that Trump does not get the 1,237 delegate votes  needed to win the nomination outright. Incidentally, just last week former US House Speaker Dennis Hastert was sentenced to 15 months in prison for sexual abuse of minors under his care and responsibility during his stint as a high school athletic coach. How many of our government officials already convicted by the Sandiganbayan are serving time in jail?
IF Alan Cayetano and Francis Escudero really have the country’s interest at heart, they should ditch what is by now clearly unrealistic personal ambitions and agree to sacrifice for the public good by withdrawing in favor of Leni Robredo in the vice presidential race.
Both their fathers, Renato Cayetano and Salvador Escudero, were stalwarts and beneficiaries of the Marcos dictatorship. For good measure, a massive call should be mounted to convince Cayetano and Escudero supporters, the majority of whom are most likely anti-Marcos, to shift their votes to Robredo in order to prevent a historic tragedy from happening. Given the rankings of the vice presidential candidates at this late stage of the campaign, a vote for either Cayetano or Escudero will be a vote to put Ferdinand Marcos Jr.
All these were done by Rodrigo Duterte and still he emerged as the top choice to become the next president two weeks before Election Day.
In the latest Pulse Asia survey of April 19-24, Duterte is the favored presidential candidate of 33 percent of voters nationwide.
Even in the Social Weather Stations survey of April 18-20, Duterte got 33 percent, Poe 24 percent, Roxas 19 percent, and Binay 14 percent.
I am equally repulsed by and strongly condemn Duterte’s outrageous declarations, but the challenge is to understand why he is drawing huge and passionate support from all economic classes because there are very important lessons to be learned. Among the ABC class of voters, Duterte garnered 37 percent, Roxas 23 percent, Binay 16 percent, and Poe 12 percent. I think a hypothetical illustration will explain this: A rich man drives home from work where a juicy slab of steak awaits him for dinner. As our rich guy dines, he turns to the TV set and listens to Roxas, Poe and Duterte articulating their platforms.
During the last presidential debate on April 24, all the candidates presented similar promises, but the mere manner by which they delivered their messages explains why Duterte is winning the bulk of poor voters. In contrast, Duterte spoke in a manner that was so unlike the chatter of politicians associated with broken promises. Duterte is also helped by the cultivated image that his Davao City functions efficiently, largely free of crime and corruption, so unlike the reviled Metro Manila cities. This has sparked pseudolegal debates over presidentiable Mar Roxas’ bank secrecy waiver and Duterte’s previous promise to waive bank secrecy. Congratulations to Duterte’s celebrity lawyer Sal Panelo, my old University of the East colleague. From the Inquirer timeline: On March 11, Duterte signed a “pledge to open all our bank accounts” (not a waiver) and invited rivals to sign it. Thus, no matter what the waiver actually says, a self-respecting bank officer would ask Roxas to confirm it in writing and restate which accounts are covered. The late chief justice Renato Corona signed a waiver of bank secrecy during his impeachment trial. Second, a criminal with half a brain would know by now to hide ill-gotten gains in other people’s accounts, which his or her waivers cannot cover.
Again, this is an intellectual exercise aimed at asking whether we ask the right questions each time a piece of legal mumbo jumbo is waved on TV. The waivers are an admirable affirmation of transparency by Roxas and Robredo (and Poe, when hers comes).
Thus, when Robredo was accused of sleeping on a P700,000 bed, when Poe’s son was accused of wearing P100,000 sneakers, and the last time someone joked about Roxas’ family wealth, were you satisfied that the responses were immediate, direct and complete? Finally, we must internalize that these public waivers are enforced by voters, not lawyers. LAST APRIL 14, some 200 retired generals and colonels gathered in a restaurant in Greenbelt, Makati, for dinner with an honored guest, Sen. Only Fortunato Abat, Fidel Ramos, and the shadowy Jose Almonte remain as survivors of the Marcos apparatus. The retired officers present at the dinner were led by Benjamin Defensor of Iloilo, former commanding general of the Air Force and subsequent AFP chief of staff, ambassador on counterterrorism, and Apec chair.
The former Army Special Forces chief, Benjamin Samonte of Ilocos, was on hand with two T-shirts marked “2nd Lt Ferdinand R. As the creme de la creme of the officer corps, the retired officers rose through the ranks by sheer merit and dedication to duty. The camaraderie perturbed a martial memory from their hearts with the “Martial Law Citation Badge” they wore proudly on their uniform as junior officers, over the “February ’86 Revolution Ribbon” awarded by Corazon Aquino when they were senior officers 30 years ago. Utterly lacking a revolutionary program of political and social change, Edsa I deposed Ferdinand Marcos but restored oligarchic rule. Today, a generation of millennials confronts a modern state, with a high level of expectation to be at par with our regional neighbors. Benigno Aquino III fared no better—an accidental president because Cory died in an election year. Vice presidential candidate Bongbong Marcos spoke with the vigor of youth and the maturity of experience. It took a Bongbong to stop the proposed law from being bulldozed through Congress with a substitute bill: This nation cannot endure as one unless we reconcile the tribes to each other—Christian, non-Christian, Muslim or nonbeliever—and make them live as brothers under one roof. Bongbong concluded with a plea for national unity: The life and vitality of a nation lie not in its boundaries of geography or race, but in the consciousness of its citizens to share a common destiny.
The evening galvanized a fraternal bond for the mobilization of energies toward a national purpose, inspired by a competent and promising leadership.
WE ARE a group of very senior “ladies who lunch,” and very concerned to the point of agitation over the May 9 elections. The lone male and Benjamin, Francis Caluag Cruz, says he “hates the election period with its hypocrisy, mudslinging, garbage, even the obnoxious possibility of giving trapos a new foothold in government, or going for a candidate because he appeals to our hidden, darker nature. Glo Alcuaz advises to “choose wisely.” She feels it “an insult to be faced with a cast of candidates displaying huge doses of corruption, contempt for women, theft, lies. In her 85th year of living, Yit Natividad thought: “Everything was just dandy as I prepared myself for a peaceful and graceful exit.
We join in Marcia’s prayer: “In this crucial time of the elections, I ask you, Lord, to give us a president, whose love for his country is embedded in his heart. OUR MORALLY bankrupt way of doing things in politics is often marked by “its moments of intensity, its lapses, its extended periods of feverish agitations, and its fainting spells.” Morality determines who we are, but what we are as a people, given our immature democracy, is defined by political expediency.
There is a war out there, betrayals and harsh awakenings, “all against all,” as Thomas Hobbes would love to say. The suffering of poor Filipinos means that we carry with us the pain of the past, the irreversible disappointment of their present, and the undying hope for a miraculous future. Yet, it would be heartless and unreasonable to throw the moral weight of the profanity of our times on a suffering people. One of Walden Bello’s lasting insights is that the interest of the Filipino people will never become part of a neoliberal, capitalist economic agenda. Indeed, the truth these days seems to be a mere fabrication of fanatical and unending discussions. Christopher Ryan Maboloc is assistant professor of philosophy at Ateneo de Davao University. Today, we again find our country’s biggest liars, thieves and murderers lining up at the wide gates of opulent mansions of the block-vote “messiahs” for the latter’s coveted political endorsement. Still and all, through the narrow gate and along the path of teaching done well and seeds well-planted, true messiahs come to trust their followers to make the right choices for themselves.
TO ALL my friends who expressed “surprise” and “disappointment” about my choice of Rodrigo Duterte as president, here’s my reason: He is the only candidate who represents real change. While I support Grace Poe’s heart for the people, her lack of experience and over-reliance on a glib partner with questionable character are major concerns. Jejomar Binay’s executive skills are proven but with his questionable dealings and family, he carries too much baggage.
Miriam Defensor Santiago’s best years are behind her, though she still has her occasional flashes of brilliance from her good days. Mar Roxas undoubtedly has the pedigree, the education, the “talk” and the ideal “look” of a president.
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!
This book predicts the decline of today’s professions and describes the people and systems that will replace them. Based on the authors’ in-depth research of more than ten professions, and illustrated by numerous examples from each, this is the first book to assess and question the relevance of the professions in the 21st century. One of America’s most accomplished entrepreneurs—a pioneer who made the Internet part of everyday life and orchestrated the largest merger in the history of business—shares a roadmap for how anyone can succeed in a world of rapidly changing technology. In The Third Wave, which pays homage to the work of the futurist Alvin Toffler (from whom Case has borrowed the title, and whose work inspired him as a young man), Case takes us behind the scenes of some of the most consequential and riveting business decisions of our time while offering illuminating insights from decades of working as an entrepreneur, an investor, a philanthropist, and an advocate for sensible bipartisan policies. Blackout Wars is about the historically unprecedented threat to our electronic civilization from its dependence on the electric power grid. The rise of artificial intelligence has rekindled a long-standing debate regarding the impact of technology on employment. Drawing from nearly 600 years of technology history, Innovation and Its Enemies identifies the tension between the need for innovation and the pressure to maintain continuity, social order, and stability as one of today’s biggest policy challenges. A “rock star” (New York Times) of the computing world provides a radical new work on the meaning of human consciousness. While the program was a only a partial success, it laid the foundation for The Tides of Mind, a groundbreaking new exploration of the human psyche that shows us how the very purpose of the mind changes throughout the day.
In the great introspective tradition of Wilhelm Wundt and Rene Descartes, David Gelernter promises to not only revolutionize our understanding of what it means to be human but also to help answer many of our most fundamental questions about the origins of creativity, thought, and consciousness. With fifty-five peer reviewed chapters written by the leading authors in the field, The Blackwell Companion to Consciousness is the most extensive and comprehensive survey of the study of consciousness available today. Model Zero is a toolkit for reconstructing yourself as someone who can thrive in an environment that is changing at an exponential pace. Featuring numerous updates and enhancements, Science Fiction and Philosophy, 2nd Edition,  presents a collection of readings that utilize concepts developed from science fiction to explore a variety of classic and contemporary philosophical issues. Uses science fiction to address a series of classic and contemporary philosophical issues, including many raised by recent scientific developments.
Explores questions relating to transhumanism, brain enhancement, time travel, the nature of the self, and the ethics of artificial intelligence. Features numerous updates to the popular and highly acclaimed first edition, including new chapters addressing the cutting-edge topic of the technological Singularity.
Provides a gateway into classic philosophical puzzles and topics informed by the latest technology. Susan Schneider is an Associate Professor of Philosophy and Cognitive Science at the University of Connecticut and a faculty member in the technology and ethics group at Yale’s Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics.
A monumental work on the flow of time, from the universe’s creation to “now,” by the best-selling author of Physics for Future Presidents. With such compelling and provocative novels as Red Planet Blues, FlashForward and The WWW Trilogy, Robert J. Experimental psychologist Jim Marchuk has developed a flawless technique for identifying the previously undetected psychopaths lurking everywhere in society. Jim is reunited with Kayla Huron, his forgotten girlfriend from his lost period and now a quantum physicist who has made a stunning discovery about the nature of human consciousness. For General Michael Hayden, playing to the edge means playing so close to the line that you get chalk dust on your cleats. As Director of CIA in the last three years of the Bush administration,  Hayden had to deal with the rendition, detention and interrogation program as bequeathed to him by his predecessors. For 10 years, then, General Michael Hayden was a participant in some of the most telling events in the annals of American national security.
As he writes, “There is a story here that deserves to be told, without varnish and without spin. Train an em to do some job and copy it a million times: an army of workers is at your disposal.
Some say we can’t know the future, especially following such a disruptive new technology, but Professor Robin Hanson sets out to prove them wrong.
While human lives don’t change greatly in the em era, em lives are as different from ours as our lives are from those of our farmer and forager ancestors. Read about em mind speeds, body sizes, job training and career paths, energy use and cooling infrastructure, virtual reality, aging and retirement, death and immortality, security, wealth inequality, religion, teleportation, identity, cities, politics, law, war, status, friendship and love.
This book shows you just how strange your descendants may be, though ems are no stranger than we would appear to our ancestors.
This book illuminates the astonishing science behind his decision, and the transformative power of the patternist thinking that carried him to it.
Written with empathy, searing insight, and dark humour Frozen to Life is both cutting edge and bleeding heart: a postmodern experiment in falling in love with life while preparing for death, in ways we can change ourselves radically without losing our treasured humanity, and in coming to understand that neither life nor death is what we think it is.
Everyone would benefit from seeing further into the future, whether buying stocks, crafting policy, launching a new product, or simply planning the week’s meals. In Superforecasting, Tetlock and coauthor Dan Gardner offer a masterwork on prediction, drawing on decades of research and the results of a massive, government-funded forecasting tournament. In this groundbreaking and accessible book, Tetlock and Gardner show us how we can learn from this elite group.
The New York Times bestselling author of The Rational Optimist and Genome returns with a fascinating, brilliant argument for evolution that definitively dispels a dangerous, widespread myth: that we can command and control our world. The Evolution of Everything is about bottom-up order and its enemy, the top-down twitch—the endless fascination human beings have for design rather than evolution, for direction rather than emergence. As compelling as it is controversial, authoritative as it is ambitious, Ridley’s stunning perspective will revolutionize the way we think about our world and how it works.
In this brilliant exploration of our cosmic environment, the renowned particle physicist and New York Times bestselling author of Warped Passages and Knocking on Heaven’s Door uses her research into dark matter to illuminate the startling connections between the furthest reaches of space and life here on Earth. Sixty-six million years ago, an object the size of a city descended from space to crash into Earth, creating a devastating cataclysm that killed off the dinosaurs, along with three-quarters of the other species on the planet. Working through the background and consequences of this proposal, Randall shares with us the latest findings—established and speculative—regarding the nature and role of dark matter and the origin of the Universe, our galaxy, our Solar System, and life, along with the process by which scientists explore new concepts. Already internationally acclaimed for his elegant, lucid writing on the most challenging notions in modern physics, Sean Carroll is emerging as one of the greatest humanist thinkers of his generation as he brings his extraordinary intellect to bear not only on Higgs bosons and extra dimensions but now also on our deepest personal questions.
In short chapters filled with intriguing historical anecdotes, personal asides, and rigorous exposition, readers learn the difference between how the world works at the quantum level, the cosmic level, and the human level–and then how each connects to the other. Carroll shows how an avalanche of discoveries in the past few hundred years has changed our world and what really matters to us. The Big Picture is an unprecedented scientific worldview, a tour de force that will sit on shelves alongside the works of Stephen Hawking, Carl Sagan, Daniel Dennett, and E. Leading innovation expert Alec Ross explains what’s next for the world: the advances and stumbling blocks that will emerge in the next ten years, and how we can navigate them.
While Alec Ross was working as Senior Advisor for Innovation to the Secretary of State, he traveled to forty-one countries, exploring the latest advances coming out of every continent.
In The Industries of the Future, Ross shows us what changes are coming in the next ten years, highlighting the best opportunities for progress and explaining why countries thrive or sputter.
In each of these realms, Ross addresses the toughest questions: How will we adapt to the changing nature of work? Ross blends storytelling and economic analysis to give a vivid and informed perspective on how sweeping global trends are affecting the ways we live. Professor Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, has been at the centre of global affairs for over four decades. Visions of the Future is a collection of stories and essays including Nebula and Hugo award-winning works. But these literary works are more than just a reprisal of the classical elements of science fiction and futurism. This book, Visions of the Future, is not just a handy collection of pulp scifi adventures and articles. Bestselling author David Agus unveils the brave new world of medicine, one in which we can take control of our health like never before and doctors can fine-tune strategies and weapons to prevent illness. In his first bestseller, The End of Illness, David Agus revealed how to add vibrant years to your life by knowing the real facts of health. In Rationality: From AI to Zombies, Eliezer Yudkowsky explains the science underlying human irrationality with a mix of fables, argumentative essays, and personal vignettes. A decision theorist and researcher at the Machine Intelligence Research Institute, Yudkowsky published earlier drafts of his writings to the websites Overcoming Bias and Less Wrong. From wearable sensors, to improved point-of-care diagnostics to artificial intelligence and robotics, there are a great and growing number of breakthroughs in biomedical technology which are set to fundamentally change the way that patients interact with their healthcare providers. As part of EFF’s 25th Anniversary celebration, we’re releasing a Creative Commons-licensed anthology of short fiction! The authors in this collection explore the wonders and perils of technology over the next 25 years and beyond, imagining the consequences of everything from abusive intellectual property lawsuits to out-of-control viral marketing; from over-protective intelligent fridges to violently loyal cyber-pets. Imagination plays a significant role in our work to protect digital civil liberties, and we have met many fellow speculative fiction fans in our 25 years.
Seems either no one is talking about louis daguerre at this moment on GOOGLE-PLUS or the GOOGLE-PLUS service is congested.
Currently, Clinton has 2,176, including 510 superdelegates, while Sanders has 1,400, including 41 superdelegates, according to a CNN tally. Sunday near the Rhode Island Avenue Metro station and one of the cars leaked sodium hydroxide, which is used to produce various household products including paper, soap and detergents, CSX said. MARC said trains likely won’t operate past Silver Spring and urged residents to find an alternative way to get to work. Duterte said all his life he has never been a politician, and neither has he sought elective position, nor has he run for public office.
He owned up to the account only after certain individuals deposited P100 to P500 to it, proving its existence. The SHS curriculum has been integrated with some subjects in the College General Education curriculum with the approval of the Commission on Higher Education, which subjects will be deleted from the college curriculum so students may focus more on courses relevant to their degree programs.
These are the subjects that will give you the competencies and advanced skills required in college or tech-voc education, entrepreneurship, employment and, most important, life. Uy, is the GAS because it will allow students to try one or two subjects in the STEM, one or two in tech-voc, and other electives for which the SHS has the facilities and the teachers.
Students can have, for example, four core subjects plus three specialized subjects in one semester.
If their selected tracks are not available in the public school where they finished Grade 10, students can either go to another public SHS or use their vouchers to go to a private or non-DepEd school offering their tracks. To illustrate: A student who chooses the STEM takes up in the first semester four core subjects, an applied subject and a specialized subject, say, Basic Calculus. The department started accepting applications in October last year and, after screening, started hiring two months ago. For the Academic track, the DepEd is working with colleges and universities and centers of excellence. For one, partnerships with different companies for tech-voc courses will give students actual work experience that may lead to immediate hiring. Under the contractualization scheme, workers are hired for five months without security of tenure and benefits, and are terminated as their contracts expire but rehired under a new but similar deal. But that prosperity still remains in the hands of the elite few of our society,” said TUCP president Raymond Mendoza.
Farmers, who were among the demonstrators, demanded government assistance after their  crops were damaged by El Nino. Because of this, she said, the group was still undecided on whom to vote for President on May 9. As a result, he said benefits under collective bargaining agreements and productivity pay of P10,000, as well as clothing and uniform allowance, daily meal allowance and night differential pay, were paid in full and without taxes. Foreign multilateral financial institutions are all praises for the Philippines’ economic performance, which was capped by the first-ever investment-grade credit rating given by international debt watchers.
Decades-old problems linger and are seemingly unsolvable, the most pressing being poverty and lack of infrastructure. Last week, the Philippine Chamber of Commerce and Industry (PCCI), one of the oldest and biggest organizations in the country, announced that it would propose—yet again—to the next president an aggressive economic and governance reform roadmap summed up by the acronym “GIANT STEPS.” The objective is to sustain the economic momentum and, more importantly, create more jobs to address the poverty problem. GIANT STEPS stands for good governance, infrastructure, agriculture, new era of manufacturing, tourism, science, technology, education, people and skills. President Aquino was off to a good start in 2010 when he announced his flagship economic program—the public-private partnership (PPP) scheme. From a self-sufficient producer of rice, for instance, the Philippines has become one of the world’s biggest importers of the staple.
A classic example is the demise of the garments and textile industry, which was among the top dollar earners in the 1970s and early 1980s. But good governance should not only be about stamping out graft and corruption; it is as much about reducing bureaucracy and red tape, providing consistent rules and regulations (remember how policies are changed in the middle of the game, or how the courts interfere in purely business deals?) and reforming the tax system to make it competitive with our neighbors.
But it will take more than this to uplift an entire country and not just the few sectors that remain protected by law to the detriment of consumers. Hernando DCA Iriberri in my listing of Armed Forces chiefs of staff during P-Noy’s term as Commander in Chief.
If the lowly barangay captain has a fixed term of three years set by law, it is outrageous that the AFP chief of staff is replaced almost on a yearly basis. But if it will temper emotions, here are samplings of the insults and mudslinging going on in the US presidential race. Hastert is one of the highest, if not the highest, US government official to be sent to prison in recent years.
Often, motions for reconsideration and appeals keep them out of jail and, after a while, the cases are forgotten or maybe important documents get lost. Now is the time to demonstrate to the nation, in deed and not in mere words, that they have cut their umbilical cords to the Marcoses. He joked about not being first in line in the gang rape of an Australian missionary who was later murdered.
Detractors of Duterte who are avid supporters of Poe or Roxas are puzzled as to why he has enamored himself with the rich despite his street-thug ways and gutter language. To him, the message delivered by both Roxas and Poe is that they will increase the steak on his plate to two slabs per dinner.
Among the Class E voters, he obtained 31 percent, Poe 24 percent, Roxas 22 percent, and Binay 18 percent. Roxas, Poe and Binay might have been well-meaning in their promises to improve the lives of the poor. His candid manner of speaking and his propensity to mouth foul words to vent anger at society’s ills infuse sincerity and authenticity to his persona. But last week, he was accused of unexplained wealth because his bank account allegedly contained P211 million at one time.
Antonio Trillanes explaining how he knows there is allegedly P227 million in Duterte’s account with the Bank of the Philippine Islands, Julia Vargas branch, before he opens this account today. These debates underscore how our democracy narrowly views law as a game of technicalities and consistently misses real legal issues.
Presidentiable Jejomar Binay signed, on March 20, authorization for the Anti-Money Laundering Council to check his bank accounts (not a bank secrecy waiver). However, a person is generally free to waive his or her rights, and there is usually no prescribed format. As a practical point, to cut short the process, she would prefer a waiver that is addressed to the bank and specifies the accounts. We must focus on how a candidate actually responds to allegations of financial impropriety.
We must make it clear that we are firmly behind our idol, Ombudsman Morales, and what she wants, she must get.
Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., son of the strongman who proclaimed martial law with his officers led by Gen.
The other notables were Roy Cimatu of Ilocos, Alexander Yano of Zamboanga, Victor Ibrado of Negros, Paterno Labiano of Baguio, Jaime delos Santos of NCR, Reynaldo Mapagu of Cagayan, Reynaldo Gopilan of Bulacan, Robert Morales of Agusan, Josue Geverza of Iloilo, and undersecretary Antonio Santos.
Marcos Jr, Cl 21-A-1979.” At 21, Bongbong trained as a cadre in the jungle of Tanay bordering the Sierra Madre in Rizal.
Harangued to join Edsa I by Ramos and company, they dutifully shifted their allegiance to the political regime established by the people they passionately served. Its battlefield transcends land, sea and sky—the “battlespace” consists in winning the people’s allegiance to a government that truly represents them.
With paced diction and focused mind, he offered 20 years of public service to which none of his rivals can lay claim.
But Agfo’s impertinence exacted a heavy toll: The proposed increase in the retirement benefits of uniformed services was vetoed by P-Noy. Silvestre, former chief, Office of Strategic and Special Studies of the Armed Forces, a retired Army colonel, bemedalled officer and multiawarded writer, was teaching political science at UP Manila when called to active duty as first lieutenant in 1975. The majority was “undecided.” Alas, I could see from their nonplussed expressions that they didn’t know who Leni Robredo was. Our institutions have become the apparatus of dynasts and local tyrants, and the poor Filipino has simply become the willing specimen of the experiments of the ruling few. Our politics, with all the mudslinging, is nothing but a cacophony of the barbaric ways of old. Trade liberalization policies are often to the disadvantage of poor nations, who do not have the resources to be competitive.
The greatest paradox out there is the passion and hatred of millions of our young people who have shown their love for country through rants and online protests because they are disgusted with dishonest politicians.
Teach a man how to fish, you feed him for a lifetime” is a Taoist proverb often used by various religious leaders to define their task of teaching their flock how to be discerning. A true church of God is dedicated to making its followers effective fishers of men, who are themselves able to tell good fishes from bad. And I wonder in what circle of hell did these “evangelists,” “ministers,” and “appointed sons of God” find the gall to compel their flock to elect their choice of mostly corrupt candidates, never mind better judgment, thus turning God’s house into a den of thieves ad nauseam.
True messiahs will not dictate who to vote for, for they gladly trust the judgment of those who have learned how to fish. With his Wharton degree and background, he seems to be the best man to ensure that the economic gains of the current administration won’t be wasted. That’s why Transportation Secretary Joseph Emilio Abaya, despite the perennial public demand for his dismissal, because of his departmentEeeek! 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! In an Internet society, according to Richard Susskind and Daniel Susskind, we will neither need nor want doctors, teachers, accountants, architects, the clergy, consultants, lawyers, and many others, to work as they did in the 20th century.
They argue that our current professions are antiquated, opaque and no longer affordable, and that the expertise of their best is enjoyed only by a few. In an era when machines can out-perform human beings at most tasks, what are the prospects for employment, who should own and control online expertise, and what tasks should be reserved exclusively for people? The first wave saw AOL and other companies lay the foundation for consumers to connect to the Internet. With passion and clarity, Case explains the ways in which newly emerging technology companies (a growing number of which, he argues, will not be based in Silicon Valley) will have to rethink their relationships with customers, with competitors, and with governments; and offers advice for how entrepreneurs can make winning business decisions and strategies—and how all of us can make sense of this changing digital age. Most Americans have experienced temporary blackouts, and regard them as merely an inconvenience. This is just one of many areas where exponential advances in technology signal both hope and fear, leading to public controversy. It reveals the extent to which modern technological controversies grow out of distrust in public and private institutions. Indeed, as Gelernter explains, when we are at our most alert, when reasoning and creating new memories is our main mental business, the mind is a computer-like machine that keeps emotion on a short leash and attention on our surroundings. You keep constructing and sticking with increasingly obsolete ideas about the world, even though many of them were rather fictional to begin with. Some very basic operating principles of your mind, mental models and language pull you towards fiction. In this book, the Center for Curriculum Redesign (CCR) describes a framework built to address this question, so that curriculum is redesigned for versatility and adaptability, to thrive in our volatile present and uncertain future. Sawyer has proven himself to be “a writer of boundless confidence and bold scientific extrapolation” (New York Times). But while being cross-examined about his breakthrough in court, Jim is shocked to discover that he has lost his memories of six months of his life from twenty years previously—a dark time during which he himself committed heinous acts. As a rising tide of violence and hate sweeps across the globe, the psychologist and the physicist combine forces in a race against time to see if they can do the impossible—change human nature—before the entire world descends into darkness.
Otherwise, by playing back, you may protect yourself, but you will be less successful in protecting America.
What else was set in motion during this period that formed the backdrop for the infamous Snowden revelations in 2013? He also had to ramp up the agency to support its role in the targeted killing program that began to dramatically increase in July 2008. My view is my view, and others will certainly have different perspectives, but this view deserves to be told to create as complete a history as possible of these turbulent times.
When they can be made cheaply, within perhaps a century, ems will displace humans in most jobs.
Applying decades of expertise in physics, computer science, and economics, he uses standard theories to paint a detailed picture of a world dominated by ems. Ems make us question common assumptions of moral progress, because they reject many of the values we hold dear. From the initial confusion and isolation of his upbringing on the Scottish islands of Benbecula and Skye comes a curious inkling that collides with dominant religious dogmas and alters relationships: What am I? The Good Judgment Project involves tens of thousands of ordinary people—including a Brooklyn filmmaker, a retired pipe installer, and a former ballroom dancer—who set out to forecast global events. Weaving together stories of forecasting successes (the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound) and failures (the Bay of Pigs) and interviews with a range of high-level decision makers, from David Petraeus to Robert Rubin, they show that good forecasting doesn’t require powerful computers or arcane methods. Drawing on anecdotes from science, economics, history, politics and philosophy, Matt Ridley’s wide-ranging, highly opinionated opus demolishes conventional assumptions that major scientific and social imperatives are dictated by those on high, whether in government, business, academia, or morality.
The growth of technology, the sanitation-driven health revolution, the quadrupling of farm yields so that more land can be released for nature—these were largely emergent phenomena, as were the Internet, the mobile phone revolution, and the rise of Asia.
In Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, Randall tells a breathtaking story that weaves together the cosmos’ history and our own, illuminating the deep relationships that are critical to our world and the astonishing beauty inherent in the most familiar things.
Our lives are dwarfed like never before by the immensity of space and time, but they are redeemed by our capacity to comprehend it and give it meaning. From startup hubs in Kenya to R&D labs in South Korea, Ross has seen what the future holds.
He examines the specific fields that will most shape our economic future, including robotics, cybersecurity, the commercialization of genomics, the next step for big data, and the coming impact of digital technology on money and markets. Incorporating the insights of leaders ranging from tech moguls to defense experts, The Industries of the Future takes the intimidating, complex topics that many of us know to be important and boils them down into clear, plainspoken language.
He is convinced that the period of change we are living through is more significant, and the ramifications of the latest technological revolution more profound than any prior period of human history. In this anthology, you’ll find stories and essays about artificial intelligence, androids, faster-than-light travel, and the extension of human life. In this book, he builds on that theme by showing why this is the luckiest time yet to be alive, giving you the keys to the new kingdom of wellness. In the old world, you followed general principles and doctors treated you based on broad, one-size-fits all solutions. Comparing the development of cities and villages, advanced economies and underdeveloped countries, Colvile explores the opportunities that this faster communication and operation could bring and how we must adapt ourselves to cope with the constant need to disrupt and fracture ourselves to survive.
Misdiagnosed at age 16, she endured multiple surgeries and countless hospitalizations over the course of a decade before deciding to take charge of her own healthcare and changing her life overnight. I hope you are inspired by these stories and share them with anyone who may enjoy taking a brief trek into the future! Fire and EMS Deputy Chief John Donnelly said officials believe about half of the 15,500 gallon tanker leaked into the rail bed and ground before it was plugged, but no problems have been reported.


Duterte, in a statement released Sunday, also denied being a relative of Duterte.  He said he found it unfortunate that the senator had unnecessarily dragged his name into his series of media exposes on allegedly hidden properties and bank accounts of Mayor Duterte, the frontrunner in voter-preference surveys. The sad fact in all this is that past and present leaders knew the solutions, as evidenced by their campaign promises—promises that get forgotten once they are elected.
In 2015, 6,092 new workers were deployed overseas each day, rising from a little more than 5,000 in 2013-2014 and from over 4,000 in 2010-2012. It was welcomed by the local and international community as it had the potential to meet the country’s growing need for new airports, roads, ports, telecommunications, schools and irrigation facilities.
Tourism has also long been touted as a low-hanging fruit (which means there is little effort needed to promote this to attract visitors), yet there seems to be no overall blueprint on how to boost it. In 2003, or before the national elections the following year, the PCCI noted that many politicians, despite knowing the reforms needed to jump-start the economy, dared not bite the bullet because doing so would be politically unpalatable. When the bill came, he noted that the brownies cost P520 with a senior citizen discount of P10.
Unfortunately, he is intensely disliked by the GOP establishment, as seen from the comments of some leading members of his own party. Three Illinois governors were sent to prison for various offenses committed during their time in office.
He dared the United States and Australia to cut ties with the Philippines if he wins the presidency. And his emotional energy is drained when his wife unburdens herself of her fears that their son is hanging out with drug-dependent friends in the neighborhood, and shares the news that a friend’s house in the nearby subdivision has been robbed. In contrast, the message that emanates from Duterte is that traffic congestion will be solved, the drug menace will be licked, and rampant crime will be stopped, to enable our rich guy to savor his single-slab steak dinner. The Duterte supporters belonging to the rich class are sending the message that solving the traffic mess, the drug menace, and rampant crime will give them more life satisfaction than increasing the wealth they already have.
But their choice of words, the cadence of their sentences, and their overall manner of delivery were so reminiscent of politicians who made the same promises in the past, but who either disappeared after each election or went on to implement programs that never improved the lives of the poor. Listening to Duterte, one will not find it hard to imagine that the poor feel like they are listening to their approachable town mayor who immediately gives a remedy to their urgent needs, and who dispatches the police to quickly arrest the town bully minus complicated niceties.
Thus, when the Bureau of Internal Revenue tried to invoke the waiver, it no longer existed. Vested interests in land and commerce undermined public policy earlier enshrined for the common good. A feudal society with a democratic veneer, where the elite of 0.5 percent controls the national wealth, is simply untenable.
15, 2015, where their Association of Generals and Flag Officers (Agfo) warned the nation that the House of Representatives’ version of the Bangsamoro Basic Law was fraught with constitutional infirmities. But last week all of them knew who Leni was and practically cleaned me out of ballers, fans, stickers, and pocket calendars. Our politicians do not only thirst for power: They actually want absolute rule as monarchs!
The ordinary person, who is rendered docile, is forced into a network of experts, technocrats, and lawyers, all hired and fattened by the ruling class, in order to subjugate and render him or her politically inutile, and blind. Our laws do not give enough incentives for innovation, while the subsidies provided by Western governments to their farmers deny our own of any fighting chance.
He has trained in democracy and political party building in Germany under Konrad Adenauer Stiftung. Parents will do well to teach their children how to discern wisely and support themselves in time, instead of dictating upon and feeding them for life.
A flock regarded as unable or unworthy of discerning between good and bad fishes despite a lifetime’s worth of religious teaching is a telltale sign of a failed messiah or, worse, a false one.
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. In their place, they propose six new models for producing and distributing expertise in society. It took a decade for AOL to achieve mainstream success, and there were many near-death experiences and back-to-the-wall pivots. The second wave saw companies like Google and Facebook build on top of the Internet to create search and social networking capabilities, while apps like Snapchat and Instagram leverage the smartphone revolution. Some Americans have experienced more protracted local and regional blackouts, as in the aftermaths of Hurricanes Sandy and Katrina, and may be better able to imagine the consequences of a nationwide blackout lasting months or years, that plunges the entire United States into the dark. This book shows that many debates over new technologies are framed in the context of risks to moral values, human health, and environmental safety. Using detailed case studies of coffee, the printing press, margarine, farm mechanization, electricity, mechanical refrigeration, recorded music, transgenic crops, and transgenic animals, it shows how new technologies emerge, take root, and create new institutional ecologies that favor their establishment in the marketplace.
The way you interact with the world through mediating structures, ranging from electronic devices to words and mental models, creates an inertial force which leads you away from your goals.
The topics she has written about most recently include the software approach to the mind, A.I. The framework focuses on knowledge (what to know and understand), skills (how to use that knowledge), character (how to behave and engage in the world), and meta-learning (how to reflect on and adapt by continuing to learn and grow). This was a time of great crisis at CIA, and some agency veterans have credited Hayden with actually saving the agency.
As Wharton professor Philip Tetlock showed in a landmark 2005 study, even experts’ predictions are only slightly better than chance.
It involves gathering evidence from a variety of sources, thinking probabilistically, working in teams, keeping score, and being willing to admit error and change course.
Just as skeins of geese form Vs in the sky without meaning to, and termites build mud cathedrals without architects, so brains take shape without brain-makers, learning can happen without teaching and morality changes without a plan.
Ridley demolishes the arguments for design and effectively makes the case for evolution in the universe, morality, genes, the economy, culture, technology, the mind, personality, population, education, history, government, God, money, and the future. In Dark Matter and the Dinosaurs, Lisa Randall proposes it was a comet that was dislodged from its orbit as the Solar System passed through a disk of dark matter embedded in the Milky Way. How can the world’s rising nations hope to match Silicon Valley in creating their own innovation hotspots? This is an essential book for understanding how the world works—now and tomorrow—and a must-read for businesspeople in every sector, from every country.
How will we respond to androids, extraterrestrial life, and humans that have seemingly unlimited lifespan? Disch, in The Dreams Our Stuff Is Made Of, writes, “It is my contention that some of the most remarkable features of the present historical moment have their roots in a way of thinking that we have learned from science fiction.” Science fiction and futurism can be both predictive and prescriptive.
But even the ones that will get it wrong (and let’s be honest, most science fiction does) are still critical for us now.
In this new golden age, you’ll be able to take full advantage of the latest scientific findings and leverage the power of technology to customize your care.
The Great Acceleration is a vertiginous read, incredibly fast itself, and incredibly smart.
Real rationality, of the sort studied by psychologists, social scientists, and mathematicians.
Collectively, these sequences of linked essays serve as a rich and lively introduction to the science—and the art—of human rationality.
Since then, Robin has become an entrepreneur, and has worked on more than 10 early stage startups, including three as one of the Founders: The Organ Preservation Alliance, Exponential Medicine at Singularity University, and Morfit. These are allegations, and he has a chance to disprove these allegations,” said Farinas, who along with 21 of the 23 mayors in his province of Ilocos Norte expressed support for Roxas’ candidacy. What will happen is that the four core subjects will be credited but the Basic  Calculus will not be credited under Arts and Design, so in effect she will have one back subject.
For the Sports track, the  department has teamed up with Philippine Normal University, which has a good sports education program. Alas, after six years the PPP is saddled by delay after delay, and many of the more important projects have yet to be bid out. It said then that the country needed someone with tremendous political will, not just a mandate from the people, and that he or she must not be beholden to anyone but the people. If certain prisoners in the national penitentiary can enjoy all kinds of special privileges, it would not be surprising if former high-ranking government officials are also enjoying those privileges because of past favors and connections. The steak does not taste as delicious as it is because his taste buds are dulled by stress and fear. With the suspense, drama, song and dance, and circus performances, it’s going to be a wild ride all the way to Election Day. Human rights violations persisted with stronger force amid mass agitation for an equitable distribution of the good life. Public transport and railroads are a mess for daily commuters, labor policies are contractual, crime rates have dramatically risen, induced by poverty and lawlessness, and tanim-bala and laglag-kisame at the airport are a national shame, nourished by incompetence and chicanery.
The BBL created a substate; the republic was close to dismemberment and would be one of the victims of Mamasapano.
Pilate had asked: ‘Christ or Barabas?’ The response thundered, ‘Barabas!’ Are we all so desperate, so deceived? The emancipation of this nation from the fetters of oppression is still chained to a dark labyrinth.
Paid hacks and online trolls do not only cause the proliferation of errors, they, too, bastardize our democratic system. The state, with its massive bureaucracy, conspires with the elite in exploiting the people.
There’s something terribly fishy within a church or sect that teaches its flock to discern good from bad, but prevents that flock from practicing such discernment especially in the election of leaders who will govern our country.
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. AOL became the top performing company of the 1990s, and at its peak more than half of all consumer Internet traffic in the United States ran through the service. Now, Case argues, we’re entering the Third Wave: a period in which entrepreneurs will vastly transform major “real world” sectors like health, education, transportation, energy, and food—and in the process change the way we live our daily lives. But it argues that behind these legitimate concerns often lie deeper, but unacknowledged, socioeconomic considerations.
The book uses these lessons from history to contextualize contemporary debates surrounding technologies such as artificial intelligence, online learning, 3D printing, gene editing, robotics, drones, and renewable energy. By mastering these forces, you can evolve towards a mentally and physically greater being who inhabits a very different kind of reality. This book is essential for teachers, department heads, heads of schools, administrators, policymakers, standard setters, curriculum and assessment developers, and other thought leaders and influencers, who seek to develop a thorough understanding of the needs and challenges we all face, and to help devise innovative solutions.
He himself won’t go that far, but he freely acknowledges that CIA helped turn the American security establishment into the most effective killing machine in the history of armed conflict.
However, an important and underreported conclusion of that study was that some experts do have real foresight, and Tetlock has spent the past decade trying to figure out why.
Superforecasting offers the first demonstrably effective way to improve our ability to predict the future—whether in business, finance, politics, international affairs, or daily life—and is destined to become a modern classic.
Are our emotions, our beliefs, and our hopes and dreams ultimately meaningless out there in the void? Crowdsourcing ideas, insights and wisdom from the World Economic Forum’s global network of business, government, civil society and youth leaders, this book looks deeply at the future that is unfolding today and how we might take collective responsibility to ensure it is a positive one for all of us. If our relationship today with what is both new, unknown, and different is derived from fear, it’s not a far extrapolation to see that mentality carried forward. It’s difficult to overstate the significance of the practice of science fiction on shaping us today. Only those who know how to access and adapt to these breakthroughs—without being distracted by hyped ideas and bad medicine—will benefit. Luistro said they would welcome experts and practitioners to teach the specialized subjects part-time.
And for Arts and Design, the DepEd tapped the National Commission for Culture and the Arts.
Punzalan was entitled to 20-percent discount plus exemption from VAT, as called for in the Expanded Senior Citizen Act of 2010.
Ask yourself whether every document with a typo in the signatory’s printed name is not binding. Unbridled corruption betrayed the spirit of people power with its politics of expedience, popularity and deceit.
Our rule-makers, the gods of old and new, do not only steal money from us; they also steal the truth. Whether it is in our everyday experience or the virtual world of social media, reality has been unforgiving. The poor majority toils in this forsaken land, but it is the ruling class that divides the spoils. In the Holy Scriptures, Jesus Christ bared such yearning himself when he said, “Truly, I say to you, he who believes in me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do…” Since religious leaders are basically parents to their flock, they, too must have the same yearning—for their flock to mature and do greater works. It’s not God but an appetite for power that motivates religious leaders to decide for and dictate upon adequately mature and discerning followers who to vote for.
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. After Case engineered AOL’s merger with Time Warner and he became Chairman of the combined business, Case oversaw the biggest media and communications empire in the world.
But success in the Third Wave will require a different skill set, and Case outlines the path forward. Technological tensions are often heightened by perceptions that the benefits of new technologies will accrue only to small sections of society while the risks will be more widely distributed. It ultimately makes the case for shifting greater responsibility to public leaders to work with scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs to manage technological change, make associated institutional adjustments, and expand public engagement on scientific and technological matters. Self-awareness fades, reflection blinks out, and at last we are completely immersed in our own minds.
She is also a fellow with the Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies and the Center of Theological Inquiry in Princeton. They’ve even beaten the collective judgment of intelligence analysts with access to classified information. Here are vivid tales about possible tomorrows, from the keen eye and colorful pen of David Brin, a modern master of speculative fiction. Hugh Howey’s “The Automated Ones” projects current fear-based bigotry into our relationship with AI life. Swift’s Electric Rifle, referencing the pulp science fiction classic that gave inspiration to the modern-day inventor.
Through resilience and incredible fortune, the future may turn out far more marvelous than even the stories in this book could imagine. The most important aspect about explorations of the future is that they be written and be read. Imagine being able to get fit and lose weight without dieting, train your immune system to fight cancer, edit your DNA to avoid a certain fate, erase the risk of a heart attack, reverse aging, and know exactly which drugs to take to optimize health with zero side effects.
If there is no reasonable explanation for this, the presumption in the Anti-Graft and Corrupt Practices Act is this is ill-gotten wealth, isn’t it?” he said. If not, she might have to take it in the summer or it is possible her studies will be delayed. The internet, as a matter of fact, has since become the vehicle for lies masquerading as pious truth.
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. Similarly, innovations that threaten to alter cultural identities tend to generate intense social concern. The evidence of dramatic change is all around us and it’s happening at exponential speed.
Patterns of thought and belief that are thousands of years old still hold sway in shaping our reactions. Nicole Anderson’s “The Birth of the Dawn” shows a different relationship to human 2.0—one built on enthusiasm and wonder.
Beyond technological foresight, science fiction functions as a lab for thought experiments. 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. 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. Communications, transportation, industry, business and finance—all of the critical infrastructures that support modern civilization and the lives of the American people would be paralyzed by collapse of the electric power grid. As such, societies that exhibit great economic and political inequities are likely to experience heightened technological controversies.
What seemed to be obvious societal advances, in hindsight, were actually challenging battles. 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. 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. 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. Threats to the electric power grid are posed by cyber attack, sabotage, a geomagnetic super-storm, and electromagnetic pulse (EMP) from the high-altitude detonation of a nuclear weapon. Blackout Wars warns that terrorists and rogue states are developing a revolutionary new military strategy that could exploit all of these threats in combination, including exploiting the opportunity of severe weather or a geo-storm, to collapse the national electric grid and all the critical infrastructures.
On the other hand, might fantastically potent new beings emerge out of ourselves, as revealed in “Chrysalis”? So I reached out to him to express my fandom and whadayaknow, he's the nicest guy on earth! Featuring guest appearances by Gregory Benford, Jules Verne, and Galileo, this adventure takes you beyond the very singularity in “Stones of Significance,” pondering what could happen after humans are like gods. For the first time in history, the most dysfunctional societies, like North Korea that cannot even feed its own people, or even non-state actors like terrorists, could destroy the most successful societies on Earth—by means of a Blackout War. Attacking the electric grid enables an adversary to strike at the technological and societal Achilles Heel of U.S. Blackout Wars likens this new Revolution in Military Affairs to Nazi Germany’s Blitzkrieg strategy, secretly developed and tested in low-profile experiments during the 1930s, sprung upon the Allies in 1939-1941 in a series of surprise attacks that nearly enabled the Third Reich to win World War II.
