At this point of time it is much easier to influence other people without revealing your real identity. It is also the main reason why people who do and discuss unlawful acts are brave and confident in tempting others. Primarily because they know they won’t be held liable for their words and actions. And most of these unlawful acts involve things that shouldn’t be encouraged such as ways to commit sexual assault. Despite the campaign to end violence and to promote gender equality, there is this very odd and disturbing act surfacing in the internet that has caught the attention of the majority of people particularly those who are using the social media. Several groups around the world are now showing their great concern for this act to be considered as a form of sexual assault. Stealthing is the act of removing one’s condom in the middle of a sexual activity without the knowledge of his partner. The term actually came from the root word “stealth” which means being sneaky or doing something without making others aware of it. It actually represents its exact definition; however this became a very controversial issue because this could be considered as a form of sexual assault and a serious matter to deal with. Condoms are primarily used as a form of birth control; even more it also protects you from sexually transmitted disease such as AIDS, and many more. By using condoms, both partners gained the confidence and assurance of being safe from diseases and conception. However some twisted and perverted individuals came up with the idea of stealthing. According to them condoms take away men’s control and dominance over his partner. Thus, by performing stealthing they could regain their control and dominate their partner without their knowledge. Stealthing can be considered as a sexual assault because the other person or the partner is not aware of what his or her partner is doing, thus no consent was given at all. Although it happens without applying force, it is still an assault because only one person is benefited and other is harmed. Individuals or victims who experienced this activity said they were traumatized and became depressed because of the threat of being infected by sexually transmitted diseases and unplanned pregnancies. It was hard for them to move on especially for those who engaged in casual sex. These victims are warning the public to be very careful in picking or choosing their partners as stealthing triggered several individuals’ curiosity to try it despite of the depressing result.

Finally you decided to apply for a passport because you want to go on a trip outside the country. Or you would just want to avail of the privilege that the government offers to its people. Nonetheless whatever reasons you got, you need to prepare the following documents for you to surely have your passport. The DFA announced that it takes 20 days for the normal processing of passport documents; meanwhile a person has the option if he or she wants it to be rushed but with additional fee and it will only take 10 days for it to be released. The normal processing requires you to pay P950.00, meanwhile rush job is at P1200.00. If you already booked a plane ticket (which is actually not advisable not unless you have already your passport approved) it is better to choose the rush option. First things first, you have to set an appointment online if you wish for a hassle-free processing of your application. Visit the DFA website and follow the instructions given. Another tip, as much as possible be consistent in filling the information being asked. All of the information in your online application should match the details in your birth certificate, such as your father’s middle name and your mother’s maiden name. There are instances wherein you know that some of the details in your birth certificate were misspelled or written incorrectly, however you never tried to have it fixed, then you should leave it as it is in filling up your application form. Below are actually the things or documents that you need to prepare and present during your personal appearance at the DFA office. • A lot of people got confused with the requirements because some of the needed supporting documents were not specified at all. These are actually what they meant by SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS: • You need to bring any 2 of these SUPPORTING documents during your appearance in the DFA office. (DFA specified to bring at least 1 valid ID, however when I personally tried to apply, they required me to give two (2) government issued ids) Although it has been stated that you just have to choose any of the two, it is better to be prepared and secure all possible documents in case of any problem in the future. Lastly, how about the passport size picture? The answer is NO. You actually don’t need to provide a passport size picture because your photo will be taken during your appearance at the DFA office. You might want to wear something with collar because if not, you have to wear something like a top that has a collar on it provided by the DFA office. It is actually the last step of your application.
If you are reading this then you are most likely a middle child who is looking for confirmation that you really feel special because of your controversial birth order. Although less attention is given to middle children during child rearing, middle children became an interesting target for research because of their complicated situation. Children who were born on such order have great qualities especially when it comes to coping and socialization. But what are the most common traits that makes up a middle child? Here is the list: 1. A part of you will always feel that nobody cares about you – it is the most fundamental feeling that the middle children share. It starts when you just don’t know who or what you should be. The parents are busy making your older sibling responsible and at the same time they are busy looking after and enjoying your younger sibling. 2. You were used to being alone but you are not even sad about it – although not all middle children are introverts, there is a strong force that pushes a middle child to enjoy a moment of himself or herself to meditate or to think of plans especially when a decision has to be made. 3. You talk to yourself vocally – although it wasn’t intentional, most middle kids were not given the chance to voice out their opinion because it is the job of the older sibling and such decisions are actually made for the benefit of the youngest child. In a way, middle children have been used to voice out their thoughts to their selves alone. They do it because they actually value listening to opinion since they weren’t given that chance when they were young. 4. You always think that you are not your parents’ favorite – parental biases will always take place no matter how many times parents say that they don’t have favoritism among their children. Meanwhile, the middles would voluntarily take the place of not being the favorite child or the less appreciated one because they have been used to sacrifice ever since they became a middle child. 5. It always comes to you to consider other people’s feelings before you make any decision – although this may sound too kind this is actually true for almost all middle kids. Since they were used to get caught in the middle they learned how it feels to be on top of someone and at the same time find themselves in the bottom. 6. You feel a bit distant and secretive to your own family – this is a thing that only middle children could understand. It may sound rebellious but it is not. Since they were used being left behind or that their opinions don’t really matter at all, they become cautious in opening up or trusting a family member.
Last April 12, 2017, the internet was stormed by viral videos of a certain passenger being violently dragged down from his seat. It was absolutely a very awful scene not only for the victim but as well as the passengers. Several passengers of the same flight took pictures and videos of it and instantly upload it to social media. It wasn’t long enough that almost the entire world became aware of what the Airline Company just did to one of its passengers. According to the United Airlines, the dragging off of the passenger was a result of overbooking. Basically airline companies are actually allowed to overbook provided the possibility of passengers who failed to show up during their flights. However flight 3411 bound to Louisville Kentucky turned out to be fully booked, with all seats being occupied already by its passengers. It could have been a usual flight for everyone; however there were crews from the said airline who needed to be onboard as well because they need to be transferred to the next station. At this point, The United Airlines, decided to prioritize their cabin crews instead of their passengers who were already occupying their seats. At first they offered a certain amount to compensate those who will voluntarily give up their seats, to give way for the four cabin crews. However no one actually volunteered to exit the plane, roughly because the soonest flight to avail will be on the next day. United Airline actually became disappointed with its passengers’ reaction as if they find their offer a great one and so they decided to pick on passengers who will need to deplane the aircraft whether they like it or not. One of these passengers refused to the airline’s decision and explained that he needs to go home at that moment and that he cannot miss that flight because he is a doctor and his patients and family are all waiting for him. However instead of convincing the passenger, one of the police officers who happened to be respond to the airline’s request, forcefully removed the man from his seat. The incident caused the man to bump his head unto the armchair leaving him to lose his two front teeth and a broken nose. The man was actually bleeding as he was being dragged down the aisle while all the passengers are taking pictures of him, questioning what the airline just did. It was absolutely an event that nobody could ever deny that it was the airline’s greatest mistake. In fact United Airlines just experienced a remarkable drop in their shares following the said event. People are now actually campaigning to boycott them which is something any company wouldn’t want to experience. The CEO even tried to consider the event as an unfortunate one when in fact it was horrendous and a morbid scene for all the people who saw what really happened inside. As of the moment, Dr David Dao, who has been identified as a Vietnamese-American, is now consulting his lawyers in filing a lawsuit against United Airlines. It only means it’s payback time, literally and figuratively.
It is a bizarre geological formation which consists of at least 1,260 hills. Each hill is covered with green grass which turns to brown in the dry season making it look like chocolates. The images of these hills are marked in Bohol’s provincial flag and seal as a symbol of prosperity. Because of its fame among tourists, the Chocolate Hills were added in the list of Philippine Tourism Authority’s tourist destinations. It is also considered as the third National Geological Monument of the Philippines. The Chocolate hills are all dome-shaped and symmetrical in shape. They differ in sizes some from 30-50 meters high. Each of these hills is made of limestone covered by grass. It is also estimated to have 1,268 up to 1,776 mounds making up the whole group of hills which are scattered in Carmen, Sagbayan and Batuan towns. The hills got its name from the color it turns to during dry seasons-chocolate brown. This is due to the drying leaves of the grass covering it. The Chocolate hills would look like endless giant dome chocolates lined up as far as the eye can see during the summer. The Imperata cylindrica, Saccharum spontaneum, and Compositae are the species of grass which grows on these hills. Groups of ferns can also be found covering the layers. The cultivation of rice is mainly found in between each hill. Because of quarrying activities, these vegetations are now threatened. The Chocolate Hills has some legends explaining the origin of the Chocolate Hills. The first one explains that there used to be two giants who fought and hurled rocks and giant boulders at each other. When they grew tired they reconciled and left the place forgetting to clean up. Another legend has it that a giant called Arogo cried so much for the death of a beloved mortal so much that the Chocolate Hills were formed. The third legend claims that it was a giant carabao eating all of the town’s crops. The townsfolk planned and fed the giant with spoiled food and so it has defecated large mounds. These mounds then dried up turning into the Chocolate Hills. But whatever the legends say, a more scientific explanation could be found and read at a viewing deck located in Carmen, Bohol. The plaque explains that the hills were originally marine limestone underneath which is hardened clay. The shapes turned into what it is today due to constant rain, erosion and coral uplifting. Because of its special characteristics in terms of science and tourism, the chocolate hills were declared as a National Geological Monument in June 18, 1988 by the National Committee on Geological Sciences. And on July 1, 1997 President Fidel Ramos signed the Proclamation No.1037 which gave more protection to the site. This proclamation established the need to preserve and maintain the chocolate hills. It also established strategies to avoid illegal exploitations of the tourist landmark. At present there are two ways to view the Hills of Bohol. One is to go to the “Chocolate Hills Complex” and another is at the “Sagbayan Peak”.
Have you been mistaken for your age because of those heavy bags under your eyes? This happens most of the time because eye bags can really affect your face and your aura. If you have been watching make up tutorials, one of the most important areas in your face that needs a great concealer are your eye bags. People who have heavy and dark eye bags are usually judged to have stressful lives and are on the brink of their career and that they are slowly deteriorating. It is hard to appear fresh and lively if you have those bags with you and no matter what you do they seemed to stay with you for the rest of time. You might be wondering what you have been doing wrong all this time to have those ugly things with you. Here are the lists of common mistakes that often result to huge, dark and ugly eye bags. 1. Too much consumption of salt. Salt is a compound primarily composed of sodium. A food which is high in salt can trigger your kidneys to release signals to normalize the amount of sodium in your body. The only way to buffer and balance the amount of sodium is through water. Your body sends water on areas which has low water content such as the area under your eyes. Since you have thin skin on this area, bloating is highly noticeable. This often results to puffy eyes but more people prefer to call it eye bags. 2. Swollen eye bags can be caused by allergies. When a person experience an allergic reaction one of the most common indicator is through unending sneezing. Since the areas where your eyes bags are located are near the sinuses it is also affected by the allergic reaction. 3. Your sleeping position can be the culprit as well. People may think your sleeping position does not affect your eyes at all. However by sleeping in a relaxed position, which means by sleeping with your back against the bed you are actually preventing the flow of fluid underneath your eyes 4. Sleeping with your make up. When you have been through a rough day, all you want to do is to rest and sleep soundly. However it is important to remove those make up first before hitting your bed. Sleeping with your make up on can actually make your eyes dry. In order to reinforce the dryness your body sends signals and direct water to flush your eye bags . 5. Too much consumption of alcohol. Alcohol can remove the water from your eyes because of its diuretic nature. When this happens, again your body will send signals in order for water to stay where it is needed. This is the reason why you’ll end up with very puffy eyes the next day. 6. Lack of sleep. It is often the most common reason why a person can have dark circles under the eyes. However staying up late isn’t the main reason. Staying awake for more hours than usual can actually drain the liquid under your eyes. Aside from dehydration, the dark circles indicate fatigue as well. This occurs when the body has worked for hours without having the chance to rest.
Have you ever thought of having a child and a dog at the same time? Although it may seemed a bit of work because raising a child and a dog could be too much to handle and a lot of work is needed don’t you know that there are actually dog breeds that can act as good nannies to your kids? Letting your child grow with a furry buddy is actually a good idea. At an early age your child will learn the concept and importance of being good to animals. There is a unique bond between humans and dogs, and if you can make it happen even during their early years why not? Parents however should take note that although some dogs are great for kids, they must first consider the attitude or temperament of their dogs before trying this option. When dogs are raised properly and trained well they can be great pals even to kids. Most of the common breeds that are known to be gentle with kids are Golden Retrievers, Labrador Retrievers, Beagles, and Even Bulldogs. Golden Retrievers however tops the list because of their gentle nature. They were named retrievers for a reason. They can retrieve things and even live animals such as ducks, birds, bunnies, and many more without causing or inflicting injury to it. Such dog breeds can be good with kids because they have moderate to low energy level. Hyperactive dogs are not suitable for very young kids because their energy level sometimes goes out of control. Unlike large breeds, they are calm most of the time. Although they have low energy level it is always best to make sure that your dogs are also prepared to be nannies to your kids. It is important to know if they can be reliable for kids or not by slowly introducing them to other kids. Dogs are known to be of great companion to humans, however it is still the responsibility of the owner to make sure that their kids and dogs are both safe with one another. Although it maybe tiresome at the beginning, you will eventually appreciate how a four legged creature can inspire and give joy to your child and become a genuine friend to them.
Controversial photos of a huge fish with alleged tattoos on its body circulated over social media. It was first reported by GMA News. According to the report the fisherman caught the fish and he was stunned after seeing it with unusual markings. It is as if the fish has tattoos on its body. The designs were uniquely done and it was hard for the people in the village to explain how it happened when the other fish of the same type doesn’t have any of those markings at all. Since it was posted in the social media, people swarmed the comment section and gave their unsolicited explanation as to where did the fish got its markings. Some were pretty hilarious that are worth sharing. There are also some that could be quite convincing and could actually answer how, but the reason behind why the fish has tattoos on its body is still unknown at this point. To note, there were no other cases yet of the same incident at all. It is the first time that a fish was caught with complex designs painted on its body. 1. The fish could be Maui from the movie Moana. He wasn’t able to fully transform and end up dead with the fisherman’s fishing net. 2. The fish was a drug addict and was part of the operation TOKHANG led by the government enforces as a way of eliminating the use of illegal drugs in the country. 3. The fish stumbled on plastics or papers with prints and it transferred to its body. 4. The fish accidentally got its tattoos from a materials used in hydrographic paint. However to put an end to all the hilarious speculations made Filipinos over the internet, it has been validated that the fish actually got its markings from a t-shirt. It could be that the print transferred on the fish’s skin since the image appears to be inverted.
If you are an animal lover you have surely subscribed and followed pages related to saving animals and giving them second chances. Most of the videos you might have seen are those from foreign countries. There are only very few videos of cases of rescued dogs and cats in the Philippines. However the main reason why these videos seem to be inexistent is because this country is still on the process of informing the people regarding the animal cruelty act. It is also quite obvious that the Philippines is still a developing country and has given less emphasis on the welfare of animals. However it is great to know that there are already non-profitable organizations that are ready to give help to any animal who needs it regardless of the current situation. One of these organizations is the Philippine Animal Rescue Team (P.A.R.T). Although they have already existed for quite a while, it is just now that the public became aware of their existence and the good deed that they are doing. Basically, they rescue animals like dogs, cats, pigs, and many more despite of the insufficiency of their resources. Since PART is a non-profit organization, they mainly rely on donations made by those who also support their goals. PART is proud to be a no-kill sanctuary for all rescued animals. They are also doing their best to find these animals a new home that will give them the joy and the love that they deserve. Every now and then they are working to help those animals in need. One of the most remarkable rescues they have ever done is with Macie. According to their facebook post, although they were used to encounter dogs in severe conditions, they were not actually prepared to witness Macie’s case. (photo uploaded by: https://www.facebook.com/PhilAnimalRescueTeam/) When Macie was brought to them, she was really in a very bad shape. Her entire body contains wounds that are like tumors in sizes. She was positive for distemper and erlichia and she needs to undergo chemotherapy in order for her to survive. Despite her condition Macie was reportedly a strong dog who had a strong will to survive. (photo uploaded by: https://www.facebook.com/PhilAnimalRescueTeam/) Macie’s rescuer narrated that before they went to P.A.R.T, she tried to bring Macie to the nearest clinic possible in order to give Macie an immediate care, however all the clinics where she went suggested to euthanize Macie rather than give her a second chance because of her condition and the amount of money needed in order for her to survive. This girl is so lucky that her rescuer was able to bring her to P.A.R.T. (photo uploaded by: https://www.facebook.com/PhilAnimalRescueTeam/) Considering Macie’s case, a huge amount of money is needed in order to give her all the medications that she needs. Chemotherapy in dogs is also costly and she needs to undergo several chemo sessions to get rid of those wounds and to become fully well. P.A.R.T has already expressed their sincere determination to help Macie overcome this ordeal and they will do and give their best to save this pooch. However they also need the support of those who also believe in them in continuing their goal of saving more animals as much as they could. If you would like to be part of Macie’s fight to survive you may visit their facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/PhilAnimalRescueTeam/ or visit their website @philanimalrescue.org You will see details and updates on how you can help save one furry friend.
