What Happened to Iphone7's Headphone Jack?

     It is again September and all eyes and ears are waiting for the release of Iphone’s latest member, the Iphone 7. So what are the new things that buyers should anticipate or expect for this device? Is it just similar to its predecessors or it has something very unique to offer? Much of these hunches, it seems like there are things that will totally surprise the people. The questions of will people be glad or mad about it, is surely something any interested buyer should take note.

     One thing that is remarkably new about this device is the loss or absence of the headphone jack. Iphone7 did drop off the historic headphone jack in exchange of the iphone earpods. Users should expect for a wireless lightning earpods that works through bluetooth connection. Choosing to go wireless has drawn so much controversy to the Apple Company, yet their Marketing Chief Phil Schiller, stood firm and proud of the dynamic change of the Iphone7. According to Schiller, they decided to get rid of the traditional analog type of headphones not due to superficial reasons or perhaps to elicit an elegant style, but because the traditional design is consuming too much space for the device’s new processor. They have to let go of it and had the courage to go wireless.

     However, although it’s for the device’s own good in order to optimize its capacity, these lightning earpods are actually sold separately. Yes, you heard it right. Unlike the usual package when you buy a new device, Iphone7’s lightning earpods are not for free. So what’s the deal if you opt only for the device and you find it too costly to go for the lightning earpods? Well, you can still use your old headphones but it will take a quite turn before you can use it. You need to use an adapter that you have to connect through the charging port and connect your headphones on that adapter.

     Which would look like this:

     It’s indeed quite a job and a bit hassle, especially when you choose to walk around with your headphones on. With this, one will surely decide to go for the lightning earpods, if and only if you have the budget for it.

    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. 
    Biologically, women have higher tolerance for pain unlike men. Women experience a lot of pain during giving birth and even due to dysmenorrhea. Dysmenorrhea is not a disease or an illness but is a medical term used to describe the severe pain in the form of cramps that women usually experience when they are having their monthly period. Sometimes this can occur before, during and even after every menstruation period. When a woman starts to have menstruation there is a high chance that she will experience dysmenorrhea, in fact 80% of women experienced dysmenorrhea since they started to have their monthly periods.      The severe pain that a woman experience is absolutely something that any man would never want to experience. It is an excruciating kind of pain that it can already affect a woman’s daily activities. Some women even experience nausea and vomiting. Once it starts to interrupt with a person’s activities it is important to find ways on how to handle and perhaps ease the pain that it brings.      Physiologically, dysmenorrhea occurs when the uterus starts to contract. The reason why women feel cramps is when the uterus starts to contract strongly and it starts to block blood vessels around the uterus. The insufficient supply of oxygen to the muscle is what triggers cramps in the form of dysmenorrhea. Since it has something to do with uterine contraction, it is important to find ways on how contraction can be lessen so that it won’t affect nearby blood vessels     Drink warm water or tea. Warm water can actually help ease the cramps as the warm temperature can actually relax and help the uterus expand. In such way enough oxygen can reach the muscles. A hot compress can also help. Use a hot pack or a bottle filled with hot water and place it near your abdomen. Taking rests is very important so that your body can recover faster.     Refrain from drinking pain reliever. This kind of medicine does not take the source of pain. It only works by masking or inhibiting your pain receptors, thus you will think that it was able to help, but when the effect of the medicine fades away, you will again eventually feel the pain. Dependence to pain relievers is not good because as you take one tablet after another, the dosage will also increase.        Go for an exercise. Although this may sound stupid because of the pain you are feeling, exercise cannot directly help relax the contraction of the uterus. However by doing an exercise your body produces endorphins that can help in boosting your mood and can make you forget about the pain that you are feeling.   
    One of the latest games being launched worldwide that has become dominantly popular these past few months is Pokémon Go. This game is originally inspired by the Anime Pokémon, and even the game in Nintendo which has different Pokémon Generations. It has gained a remarkable rating all over the world. People showed great interest to play this game especially that it works through smartphones. On its first few days of being available to selected countries only, it heightens the curiosity of the people to play this game. When it finally became available globally it was indeed a hit. However barely a month after it was launched, they immediately lost a significant number of users.      Users begun to lose interest in playing Pokémon go because of few reasons. One is when cheaters came in and dominated the gyms without even really trying hard to play the game. It discouraged some of those who are still starting to play. Second is because of its poor updates. Users have anticipated that they could actually play and experience the things that they saw in the Pokémon movie or the series.       Any Pokemon Go user would absolutely want to have these updates that will surely win back the interest of the people.      Battle with other Pokémon – although you can now actually battle Pokémon if you want to earn a rank in a gym, it is not what Pokémon users would want to happen. Battling should be as easy as having a friend who can be your opponent and start battling with each other. The more a Pokémon wins, the more XP or experience points it gains.     Trading of Pokemon – believe it or not, there are some areas that have variety of pokemons to collect but have few pokemon stops to restore pokeballs. And there are also areas particularly those near in cities that have a lot of poke stops yet have fewer variety of pokemon to catch. If trading of pokemon would be available, it can absolutely attract the users to catch more and trade in.

    Showing great concerns to animals is indeed one of the noblest ways to show someone’s compassion to nature and its creation. It is not always every day that you can help save an animal in need, but when you do, it will surely make a huge impact to everyone. You will even see how people unite and come up with a way to help regardless of the distance, time and complexity of a certain issue.     This has been proven by the people of Iligan City, Lanao del Norte, when one person saw a devastating thing. A guy with a Facebook name of Danielbadz Taniel, aired his concern in a certain facebook group known as Iligan Dog Society. On his post, he described how shocked he was when he saw a puppy being fed to a snake. He asked for the help of the other members of the group on how they can possibly help the remaining two puppies from the owner.      He posted in the group last May 3, 2017; however he saw the exact incident a night before. Some of the group members worried that the dogs might have been already dead. However others showed their concern by planning on what is the best thing to do in order to save those puppies. It was discussed in the group that they need first to go to the Barangay Office and report the incident. In this manner, they followed the right protocol by informing first the law enforcers. Mr. Danielbadz Taniel, together with Mr. Edwin agreed then agreed to meet to rescue the puppies.     When they reached the Barangay Office they were introduced to the Brgy. Kagawad whom they call by the name of Kagawad Cooper. In order to make sure that they are following the rules, they check on the Animal Welfare Act and see if a violation has been really made. It has been found that under the Animal Welfare Act of the Philippines, the owner has indeed made a violation under section 6 of the said law, which indicates that any torture of harm caused to animals is against the law.      After ensuring the intent to rescue the puppies, they went to the residence of Mr. Daniel Canoy at Purok 14, Barangay Canaway, Iligan City. According to Mr. Daniel, it is where he saw the incident. With the help of the barangay official, they saw two large snakes kept in unsecured cage together with two puppies. It was indeed true that the puppies were fed to the snakes as admitted by Mr. Daniel Canoy. According to him, the puppies were just given by a friend and he did not intend to raise them as house dogs. He also said that he wasn’t aware of the Animal Welfare Act and that he didn’t know that it was already a violation.     To make things worse, Mr. Canoy wasn’t able to show a permit as to why he is keeping a snake in his residence which is another unlawful act. The incident was then reported to the DENR office for the rescue of the puppies and to confiscate the snakes. However when two personnel from DENR went to get the snakes, they were not successful because the snakes were really huge and they weren’t expecting for such size. Born to be Wild, a local TV Show has been also tagged to help in rescuing the animals, and they responded well together with the DENR Cagayan de Oro.      As of the moment, the two rescued puppies are already adopted from the member of the Iligan Dog Society.
