The search of entertainment is already innate for a person. Most of the time people turn to games, books, and movies and may more to be entertained. With the help of the internet one can have a pool of choices for entertainment. Nowadays most of the people would prefer to watch movies or series at home rather than going out. It is much more convenient and you can even save more and feel really comfortable. One of the things that Filipinos nowadays enjoy doing is watching K-Dramas or Korean Dramas, but why? Filipinos seemed not to care about language barrier at all. As expected, Koreans are using their own native language on their films and Filipinos would then rely for English subtitles to be able to understand it. It actually appears tiring yet there are lots of self-confessed K-Drama fans after all. It’s a bit confusing but any Filipino K-Drama fan will give you some of these reasons why they are so hooked with it. 1. Unique Stories – maybe because Filipinos became tired of watching the same stories over and over again and that k-dramas became a really good alternative for it. In all fairness to the Korean Movie Industry, they are quite bold, experimental and they always dare to create something new for their viewers. 2. Few Number of Episodes – K-dramas usually have 16 to 18 episodes per series. This is roughly 3-6 months of airing time regardless of its rating. If you are going to compare it in the Philippines, as long as a particular soap opera is gaining high rating, producers and directors will somehow find ways on how to lengthen the story, like adding new characters having the same purpose of those who have been killed or a new lover etc. 3. Cinematography – Koreans really invest when it comes to production of movies and talents. They have high standards in making a story as ideal as it could be. 4. Plenty of great actors and actresses – the thing about Korean drama couples is that they hardly get paired to each other for another project. The producers and directors would always prefer to match new talents with one another. This strategy is quite effective though because it thrills the fans. It allows the actors to prove their individual charisma and talents instead of mainly relying on love teams to gain fandom. 5. The Korean Beauty – the difference when it comes to physical appearance have a great impact when it comes to movies. Although Koreans and Filipinos belong to Asia, the difference in terms of beauty is what makes Filipinos fond of Koreans. Koreans have a soft kind of beauty, a beauty that’s too welcoming and endearing to watch.
War is the most unwanted and feared event that could happen in any place. Last May 23, 2017, the Philippines was reportedly fighting against local terrorist groups who later turned out to be related to ISIS. ISIS has already managed to spread terror attacks in different countries all over the world. And unfortunately, Philippines just became one of its targets. It has been 18 days since the war erupted in Marawi City, Lanao del Sur. The Philippine soldiers are sacrificing their lives in order to save the future of their country and its people. It is a difficult battle for the soldiers because the rebel group or the terrorists are using high-powered guns and they appear to have a good number of ammunition supplies. As of the writing there are already more than 50 fallen soldiers who died defending the country. With the presence of RPG from terrorist fighters targeting military tanks, it was difficult for the soldiers to fight back. Most of the soldiers die while inside the tank due to the impact caused by the explosion. Tanks are easier target because of its size. With this in mind, the Filipino soldiers were able to come up with a great idea on how to counter this problem. In order to minimize the impact, the soldiers then put wood logs covering their tanks. The wood will help to lessen the impact of RPG explosion. Bullets will just stay on the thick wood without fully penetrating on the external surface of the vehicle. Truly Filipinos are very resourceful in any situation even during war. Some are even considering of taking into account the possible innovation of battle tanks to adopt the idea. Although it may appeared simple and old-school, it was effective and it did serve its purpose. It is also a proof that although the Philippines does not have enough and latest military artilleries, Filipinos are still blessed to have brave and resourceful soldiers that are ready to die for the country.
Birth order has been known to have a significant influence on a person’s personality. In fact a prominent and well known psychologist coined the theory about birth order. It was Alfred Adler’s work that lead other psychologists to consider how such event can partly affect and help in predicting a person’s overall personality. In his theory of birth order however, a specific position have shown great crisis in terms of dealing with the demands of that particular order. The middle child is considered to be someone who is in between the eldest and the youngest child being born. The middle child has an elder sibling to compete with in terms of achievement and trust from parents, as well as control over the other siblings. At the same time the middle child needs to face the unfortunate reality that although he or she had enjoyed a moment of being the youngest it did not last long prior to the birth of a sibling. Now the youngest child enjoys all the attention and care that was supposedly given to the middle child. It is quite a difficult task to stay on the middle. The eldest becomes busy with responsibilities entrusted by the parents, thus the eldest won’t mind not being their parents’ favorite because he or she was given a task or responsibility that needs to be fulfilled. In a way, the eldest child feels empowerment and develops control over his or her younger siblings. As a result, a middle child develop unique character traits in order to cope with the crisis of being caught in the middle. Commonly, they become secretive in nature. They naturally have high trust issues. The always strive to please everybody so that they can be noticed by their parents. By staying in the middle, the child becomes a good mediator. After all it is an advantage to be on the both sides. It is like being the best of both worlds. The term middle child syndrome was a sort of adaptation to the crisis that child who falls under that particular order has to face. It’s considered a syndrome for some because most of the time middle kids have the same sentiments with one another. Although Alfred Adler’s theory were postulated years ago it is still present up to this point. Certain modern psychologists have adopted his concept of birth order and how it pays a crucial role in the development of one’s personality.
Financial stability is something that you will encounter when you start working and earning money. Actually you need to face it whether you are employed or not. It is something that you can’t escape. However the earlier you try to handle it the better. If you are already earning it is best to save something out of your daily salary regardless of how small it is. It is always best to think of the future and be prepared for any emergencies. However saving money is not the only way to become financially stable. There are a lot of ways on how you can make use of your money and investment is just one of these. Sometimes it’s a bit hard to invest your money in banks with their investment programs because of the huge minimum amount that they require. Investing your money in a business can be a bit risky as well especially if you don’t have any knowledge or experience in running a business. But leaving your money in your savings account isn’t a good idea as well. One of the best ways to make use of your money without the risk of losing it is investment in things such as jewelries. The good thing jewelries is that you can eventually use it in times of emergency by having it pawned. You can get cash from it but you still have the chance to get it back. It is handy and you can even wear them. Also, the market price or the value of jewelries do not entirely depreciate. In history, the price of gold constantly goes up through the years. It is like a real estate investment. It doesn’t depreciate, rather its value increases as time pass by. However it is important to choose the type of jewelry that you wish to buy or invest your money with. Go for small pieces in a number of quantity. Do not invest all of your money on a very expensive piece because you will then find it difficult to get it back once it has been pawned. Also the value you can get will largely depend on the pawnshop. Pawnshops have different appraisal values and interests. Make sure to choose the one suitable to your current financial capability.
Dogs and humans are not just best of friends, both also share the same qualities and even unique traits and one of these is the eye color. There are just unique things that could happen and sometimes it can be treated as unusual ones. Having different eye color is just one of the unusual cases for dogs and humans. In dogs this phenomena is called Heterochromia. Although it may appear as an abnormality, there are few cases of Heterochromia that indicates illnesses. Dogs’ eye color depends on the level of melanin present in the iris, which is actually the same with humans. A high level of melanin could give a brown eye color or the usual color of dogs’ eyes. Meanwhile dogs with light blue or green indicates low level of melanin. The levels of melanin on each eye can be different with one another thus there are some dogs who don’t have the same eye color. One eye can be brown and the other one can be blue or green. Dogs that were born to have different eye colors fall in the congenital case. Heterochromia can actually be passed through generations. If you got a dog having such condition since it was a pup, the most probable reason is that its parents either have the condition or even both of them. However there are also cases when Heterochromia can be acquired. It can happen in an occurrence of a disease such as glaucoma, cataract, or even the failure of the optic nerve to develop. Heterochromia is much more common on dogs with lighter coat. It can again be explained due to the levels of melanin. The color of the dogs coat is still part of the melanin’s coverage. One of the most common dog breed to have a different eye color is Siberian husky. However it can still occur even to those who don’t have light coat.
There are several ways to determine a person’s capability. A person can be judged through educational attainment, amount of salary or savings that that person has and many more. But a person’s personality is something which makes that particular person different from any other. In general personality is the overall qualities of a person. It includes his or her coping mechanisms, attitude to a particular situation, beliefs, aspiration, his or her character and even temperament. But how does a person’s personality develop? Is it something inborn, or is personality made? According to Psychology there are several things that can affect and are responsible in shaping a person’s personality such as birth order. The relevance of birth order to personality was first proposed by Alfred Adler. According to him, birth order determines or guides a person’s personality because of a made up expectation to a child even before he or she learns to behave on things. Children are already expected to behave into a particular list things because it has been the norm of the society. The birth order theory includes the first born, second born, middle, and the last born or as the only child. According to Adler the following are the shaped personalities according to birth order: First Born – Tends to become achievers, controlling, and reliable, independent, perfectionist, structured and cautious. These traits are often associated with child rearing, since the first born are always entrusted or tasked to look after their younger siblings. And as the first born grows older, it will play a huge part in the development of personality. Middle Child – We often hear about middle child syndrome which describes the crisis of being in between an older and a younger sibling. The birth order triggers the middle child to feel less wanted because the first born is entrusted with the responsibility and then the youngest becomes the favorite. Middle children tend to become secretive, short tempered, and prone to become rebellious but are good when it comes to socializing with other people. Youngest – The youngest child in the family is considered to be the favorite of all. Although parents would try to give equal treatment to their children, it is the youngest child who will get all the attention and care. With the abundance of love and attention the youngest kids can become manipulative, self-centered, dependent, attention seeker but at the same time they are outgoing, they are good in dealing emotions and are often relaxed.
Since it has been launched and introduced by NOKIA, people were extremely excited for the most memorable cellular phone in history which is the NOKIA 3310. It became formally available in the Philippines just this May 2017. However even before its formal release several people were already selling it online. Aside from the unexpected date of release, they are even selling it more than half the price of the introductory price. Well, these sellers are actually selling the clone ones and not the original. In the online shopping world, when someone claims a product as clone it means that the product were assembled or created by a different company. It is not the official item being released and in the simplest form it can be fake. Although it is quite disappointing that the clone ones were first to become available compared to the original one, a number of people were actually interested to buy despite the fact that it can be fake. The NOKIA 3310, is priced at P2490 in the Philippines. Meanwhile the clone ones can be bought at around P650 - P800 depending on the supplier. A huge difference of P1600 is absolutely big. No wonder a lot of people became interested to purchase one. However is it really worth your money? Because of social trend and social pressure people impulsively buy things because they wanted to be part of the trend and so they settle for the substandard ones. With the big price difference, you can expect for a huge difference also in terms of quality, battery life, software interphase and durability. Since Nokia has been much known for creating sturdy phones that are absolutely shockproof, you should not be surprised if your clone NOKIA 3310 won’t last as expected. Clones are copycats of the original. However the similarity of the products is limited to its appearance only. They might look the same from the outside, but never in the inside. Even the software would surely matter between the two. As of the moment there are already variations of NOKIA 3310 clones. Some were said to be made in Taiwan and US. If you really want to re-experience the thrill and the amazement of having a NOKIA phone, you better stay with the original because after all, it is for this reason that it became really popular and even become legendary.
Even before the end of the season and when it already became really popular, several people have already feared the after effect of the most controversial story 13 Reasons Why. Although the main purpose of the series is to raise awareness when it comes to suicide, it came to the point that it was somewhat being justified and encouraged instead of condemning the act. Several group have already showed disapproval with the series yet it has been neglected and then someone just committed a suicide in the same manner as what Hannah Baker did. A guy whose identity being kept confidential committed suicide by jumping off from the fourth floor of their apartment in Peru. He was just 23 years old and his mother was even there when the incident happened. The odd thing here is that just like the series, the guy left two suicide notes. The first note was intended for a girl that he likes and the other one is a list of people that he consider as the reasons why he could no longer take it anymore. He also left recorded tapes along with the note just exactly how the series went through. Although nobody wanted this to happen, but the makers of the series failed to act upon their social responsibility in preserving life. It is somewhat they were confident when they tried to justify suicide given the fact that it was just a TV series. But what happens now that it actually occurred in real life? What will happen to those who became part of the list? They were forced to feel guilty of something that they never wished to happen. Issues like suicide must not be taken lightly especially now that media has a huge impact on its viewers. This is not the first time that a disastrous thing like this happened. There are also cases of death related to movies such as 50 Shades of Grey.
