Why You Should Not Use Your Full Name On Facebook

Majority of the people nowadays have social media account. An average person even has two or three social media accounts from different sites or apps. This is now how things are done.

    However this convenience may also risk your own security if you fail to secure your identity and leave your privacy settings in public. It is important that you know how to change and secure your personal details on social media because you might just be a victim of identity theft. Since it’s now very much easy to let people know about yourself and the things you do, others might just take advantage of it without you noticing it. There are individuals who would want to fish on details about yourself such as your complete name.

    Although using your complete name in any account that you use, allows your friends to recognize you easier, you are also giving the bad guys the chance to make use of it. By just having your complete name they can create fake accounts and do unlawful business while using your name. These guys will not be held liable on possible crimes that they do because they hide under our name. Although you are truly innocent, still you need to present or submit yourself to authorities. This could be very stressful for anyone and for sure nobody wants to experience such ordeal.

    It is indeed flattering to have hundreds of followers but this could only happen if you set your privacy settings into public. By choosing to have a public profile you are putting your identity in a great risk. Does an unknown follower really matter? It is better to have few friends on your list as long as you know all of them and you don’t have to worry about your privacy. The things you share in your social media account are all personal, so why share it to someone you barely know?

    Until the discovery of the Callao Man, archaeologists used to believe that it was the Tabon Man who was the oldest and earliest man to have lived in the Philippines. The fossils of the Callao’s remains was discovered in Cagayan in Penablanca in the Callao Caves. It was found by Armand Salvador Mijares in the year 2007.      The discovery has produced a metatarsal, a group of bones which are located in mid and hind foot and somewhere near the toes. This metatarsus was about Sixty millimeters long. The find was dated through the use of a uranium series ablation, the most accurate dating method used by archaeologists. The results of the uranium shows that the bones were about 60-67,000 years old. If they were to prove the bones to belong to the Homo Sapiens then it would beat the Tabon Man and earn its place in the list as the earliest remains of man to be found in the Philippines. It also has the chance of being the oldest not only in the country but in the whole of Asia Pacific. Researchers has noted that the Callao Man had an average height of 4ft tall.      Researchers also believe that their descendants could be the Aetas who live in the mountains in the present in the Philippines. This is because of the possible features that emanate from their study of the metatarsal which suggests short height, curly hair and dark skin.      But the classification in terms of the biological of the Callao man became uncertain in July of 2010. This is because the metatarsal that was discovered was found out by researchers as belonging to the Homo genus species. These researchers speculate that Callao Man could either belong to the Homo florsiensis or the Homo Sapiens. Homo florsiensis are species which are distinct from men that is usually short in height and resides mostly on the islands of Indonesia. On the other hand, the Homo Sapiens are what is now known as the modern type of men. The researchers were becoming unsure of the genus of the bones due to the fact that they haven’t yet discovered a skull to fit the metatarsal. But Mijares was able to stress that the Callao Man was most probably an individual that has a small body.     Theories show that the Callao Man and his group of humans originated from the country of Indonesia and came to Luzon by way of a raft. The researchers have noted that this theory fits to dated existence of the Callao Man when humans were not yet capable of travelling long distances and voyages.      This glaciations created isthmuses or land bridges that connected islands from other islands. According to the theory during the times of the Callao Man there were isthmuses that connected Philippines to all of Southeast Asia.  In the present day, there have been no other researchers to find more on the bones of the Callao Man except those of Mijares’ group from the University of the Philippines.
    Once you decide to get yourself a pet be it a cat or a dog, you would always want to know the dos and don’ts so that you make yourself a responsible owner. If you have been one, for sure you came across with the warning not to feed your cat or dog seafood such as shrimps, crabs, shells and more.  When you ask those who told you not to, you’ll get a reply that because they are allergic to those foods, but why?     What makes cats and dogs allergic to these foods when in fact they don’t get allergies from eating fish? The fish belongs to a seafood family because it came from the same place, but it doesn’t give dogs and cats’ negative effects at all. Fish oil is even recommended not only on cats but also on dogs because it can enhance their coat and fur. But shrimps are often considered as a no-no by most of the people. Shrimps are not for your canine and feline friends so you should never include it on their diet. But what’s the real score abut shrimps that it could potentially harm your pets?     Shrimps belong to the crustacean family. They have soft shell that serves as their outer covering. Shrimps may vary in terms of sizes depending on its type. Shrimps are known to be part of a lot of human delicacies. It can be grilled, stir fried, and even served in soups and other salads. It is even in demand I the market because of its unique taste and texture. But what makes shrimps dangerous for your pets?     Shrimps are actually high in protein. If protein is the only thing to consider, it can be good for cats and dogs because they primarily need protein in order to stay healthy and alert. However shrimps contain a special kind of protein which is known as the Tropomyosin. It is different from the proteins found in meat and eggs. Since our feline and canine friends have different stomach compared to humans, their body reacts on proteins found in shrimps. Their immune system fails to recognize it as an ordinary substance and alerts the immune system to signal the body of a possible threat. The signal that follows may then come out as itching and skin rash.

According to comparisons made on the sexes of these birds, it is said that the male is 10% tinier than the female eagle. One characteristic of the Philippine Eagle is its loud and high-pitched whistles.     It was John Whitehead with his servant Juan was the person who discovered the bird in 1896.

Nowadays there are lots of dog foods to choose from such as the dry dog food or kibbles and wet dog foods that are usually canned. Other pet owners would also prefer to give their dogs table foods or those that are homemade.      The number one thing to ensure in giving food is the nutritional value that it could offer. Most of the people are convinced that dog foods are safe and complete enough to give the nutritional value that their dogs need. However are dog foods really healthy enough for your pet?     Other people would prefer to give kibble foods to their pets due to convenience. Accept it or not, giving dog foods is a lot easier than preparing a homemade food for your dog. Also, you don’t have to deal with the mess that it brings afterwards. Storing dry dog food is a lot easier as well. All you have to do is secure a dry container with a cover that is safe from pests and rodents. You can give your pet as much as they need without worrying of spoilage unlike table foods.     Dogs in particular are born carnivorous. This means that their diet should contain more meat to supplement their diet. They need a high level of protein in order for them to grow well and become healthy. So if you are thinking of giving them dry dog foods you need to see to it that it contains more protein than starch.      The selection of dog food will also depend on the type of dog you have. There are specific dog foods designed or intended for working dogs and for the small breeds as well. There are also made for puppies and for adult ones to ensure that your dog gets the right amount of nutrition that it needs.

    When you don’t have sweet tooth it is hard to find snacks that can match your low tolerance for sugar. Almost all snacks were made out of sugar, chocolates and other forms of sweeteners. It is the main reason why Skittles stands out from the rest of the group. It is a sweet yet sour candy that comes in a bright rainbow colors. But all of a sudden Skittles became really dull and lost all that rainbow colors.     In an official stamen made by Skittles, they decided to have a different packaging for intended for the entire month of June. As practiced June is the month dedicated for the LGBT community. The LGBT community has the rainbow to represent them because they acknowledged that they are composed of different genders thus constitutes not just a single color but of different colors.      Since the Skittles and the LGBT community share the same kind of color representation, Skittles gladly gave way to the LGBT community. According to them, although the share the same symbol, one has to stand out and celebrate their existence and they give it whole heartedly to the LGBT group.      This is such a remarkable and thoughtful move for Skittles. Although they were branded and known because of their color, they were not afraid to give way to celebrate a significant event for some people. Consumers in return have shown appreciation to what the company did. Their customers admired their sensitive and immediate decision to honor the LGBT community.     Changing brand packaging is a bit risky when it comes to sales and market. Well known and established companies see to it that when they have to change or modify their packaging it needs to be somehow close to the previous design. It is because people shop out of familiarity. When you change your packaging into a totally different concept, chances are your consumers will not be able to recognize your products anymore.      However it is different with the case of Skittles. They dared to risk their sales and their brand in order to commemorate an event. With this making rounds in the internet, Skittles is rest assured that their customers would still remain loyal to them.
