    Nowadays it has been so common to buy stuff online. Online shopping has even become more prominent nowadays because of the convenience that it can offer. You can shop from different parts of the country without even going out. It becomes even more convenient knowing that you will just have to browse it online. Another reason also is because online items are somewhat cheaper than those sold in malls, online sellers would claim that it is because they don’t have to pay for a space at all. The only scary thing about it is its authenticity. How sure are you that you are buying authentic good on your first purchase?     Have you ever encountered products being sold online? They are remarkably intriguing because of super low prices. Sellers would often claim that these products came from large manufacturing companies and that the products have minimal packaging defects and were not able to pass the quality control assessment. These products are often used at home and some are even necessities. You can find shampoos, lotion, bath soap, baby powder and many more. Take note that these products are not brand less or those that don’t have packing stickers. In fact these products are known brands which is why it is quite hard to check its authenticity.     The best way to validate whether a product is fake or not is by analyzing its price. If it is 50% - 80% less than the regular price then it should alarm you already. You might also wish to ask whether they are legit company distributors. If they will just tell you that they got their supplies from certain supplier then it’s time to change your mind. Most of the time products delivered by a distributor came from a single company with various products. If the seller is selling different products with different brands then it is another warning signal you should never ignore.     You might be thinking of the money you can by buying these products online. However you are actually risking your health and even your family. Since it is hard to validate if the product is real, think of what chemicals it contains. Chemical products can potentially cause cancer and even poisoning. In a way your future medical bills will surely make you regret buying fake grocery products online.
    One of the most sophisticated cities of the sixteen cities that makes up Metro Manila is Makati City. It is called the Cosmopolitan City because of its diversity in culture. It is famous for a number of reasons. Aside from being the country’s financial center, it also hosts embassies which is why it is where some international affairs are held. Makati city is remarkable for its multicultural lifestyle. It is also reputed as the entertainment center as well as a center for all kinds of intercontinental matters. The city though is most known for its hotels, condominiums, financial hubs, entertainment hubs and shopping centers all scattered around it.     According to traditional accounts, the name Makati came from a misinterpretation by the Tagalog Filipino people of Governor General Miguel de Legazpi’s questions. In the story, he asked for the name of the land near the Pasig River, but the Filipinos replied the word “Makati” which refers to the ebbing tides of the river. It was on 02 January, 1995 that Makati through the 7854 Republic Act became an independent city. Then on 30 June, 1998 the City of Makati became divided into two districts.     The city is also famous for its prominent shopping malls like Greenbelt, Power Plant and the Glorietta Malls. Aside from that it is known as the home for one of the top schools in business known as the AIM or the Asian Institute of Management. This school is an internationally recognized school. Also, Makati is where the various Rockwell campus is located.     As for its culture, the city consists of art museums, historical churches and other recreations. It is where the Manila Polo Club and Manila Golf Club is found. It also has famous landmarks in sports such as the Mkati Coliseum and the Sports Club of Makati.      The city’s official seal represents its territory’s silhouette. Underneath the silhouette is a symbol of the Pasig River which in real life is found in the north borders of Makati. Also, in front of the silhouette is the Gudalupe Church which has been included because of it being the oldest church in the City. It also symbolizes influence from the Spanish early rulers. Aside from that, in front of the city’s silhouette are drawings of skyscrapers behind which are 33 lines of rays that represents Makati’s barangays.     According to history the city of Makati used to be a part of the Santa Ana de Sapa municipality and was used as a center for pilgrimage. In the year 1670 it became an independent municipality having the name of San Pedro de Macati after its patron Saint Peter. During that century until the 18th century Makati has been famous for being prosperous in pottery.     But the rapid growth of the town came after the 2nd World War. It gave rise to real estate prices, communities which are planned centrally, and became the commercial and financial capital of the Philippines. Makati City is home to famous shopping malls, hotels, condominiums, museums, embassies and churches. Its diversity in nature became the key to its success.
    Who would ever forget the day when a very unique kind of anime has been released to the public? People were greatly influenced with the freshness of the story’s plot and story. A live action movie has been made for the movie, however unlike its manga and anime version, the live action movie was not able to satisfy the audiences’ expectation. After almost three years of waiting, finally people now have glimpse of the second season. The trailer for the second season was released last February 9, 2017.     Although the manga is already far from its anime version, a lot of people are still looking forward and waiting for the release of the second season. The trailer has thrilled everyone and it has been shared for more than a hundred times from different users.      Despite the high rating given to this anime, people are a bit disappointed for its very slow update. However, the amazing thing is, the story is actually the first story ever published by the author. This is the main reason why it seems to be very fresh in terms of idea and representation. If you are looking for something new and something different then this anime is for you.      The reason why it seemed so different from the rest of the anime is that it is not about the usual things such as love, friendship, hope, revenge, and power. Although it still contains the following elements, but the focus of the story is mainly on how humanity can survive in a very disadvantage spot. When I say disadvantage, the difference it terms of power, number and ability is at stake. How are they going to fight the Titans or the giants using their equipment alone? Not to mention the mystery as to where these Titans came from and who made them and for what purpose do they serve?      Few episodes have been already released for the second season and it has absolutely impressed its viewers. It just keeps on getting better every single episode. If you haven’t watched this anime series yet, then you should start now. There are 25 episodes per season. A single episode is just 20 minutes long. So it’s absolutely shorter compared to the usual. You are even luckier if you will just start watching it at this point because you don’t have to wait for almost two years for you to watch its season 2.   
    The complex Taal Volcano is located in the Philippines at the island of Luzon 31miles south of Manila. It is found on an island right in the middle of the Taal Lake. In the prehistoric times between 140,000 to 5,380 BP, this volcano exploded in powerful eruptions which eventually resulted in the formation of Taal Caldera which is partially filled by the lake. The complex volcano when viewed from the Tagaytay ridge emanates one of the most picturesque attractions in the Philippines.     In the past the volcano has erupted several times claiming the lives of many people residing in the island. These losses of life were estimated to be about 5,000-6,000. It was labeled as a Decade Volcano due to its simultaneous eruptions and its proximity to areas which are populated. It is one of Philippines’ most active volcanoes and is also included in the Pacific ring of fire.     The Taal Volcano and Lake is found in the province of Batangas and is split into two. The northern half of it belongs to the town of Talisay while the southern half is for San Nicolas. The Taal Lake is also surrounded by the towns of Balete, Santa Teresita, Alitagtag, Talisay, Tanauan, Cuenca and MataasnaKahoy. The whole of Volcano Island was declared by the PHIVOLCS ( Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology) as a Permanent Danger Zone. They prohibited any settlement in the said island. But despite all of that, there are still are some people who are risking their lives by residing in the area. Most of these are poor families who make a living through fishing and farming in the volcano’s rich soil.     There are 33 eruptions of the Taal volcano recorded in the history of Philippines since 19572. The first was in 1572 when Augustinian friars established Taal town. The second was a mild eruption taking place in 1591 which featured great masses of smoke coming from the crater. But during 1605 to 1611 the volcano was having great activities. Out of fear Father Torna de Abreu erected a huge wooden cross on brink of its crater.     The center of activities transferred from the crater to other parts of the island itself between 1707 and 1731. In 1715 the eruptions ensued in the BinitiangMunti crater. Also minor eruptions occurred from this crater to the western end of the island in the years 1709 and 1729. On September 24, 1716, a very violent activity occurred destroying the whole southeastern parts of the crater located at the opposite of Mount Macolod. Another remarkable eruption was the 1731 activity where the explosion itself created an island at eastern side of the island. The greatest known eruption of Taal Volcano occurred in 1754. It lasted for 200 days from May 15 to December 1.     After the year 1754 the Taal remained silent for a period of 54 years. Although it had minor activities 1790, the volcano did not erupt violently until March 1808. This eruption was as great as the 1754 eruption. It dramatically changed the shape of the crater’s interior. It had widened the crater and reduced the pond inside it. The crater walls also has diminished due to this powerful eruption.     Recently, since 1977 the volcano has remained quiet again. But there have been signs of minor activities in 1991 presenting seismic and ground fracturing. There are also mud pots and geysers seen across the island taking formation. Because of this the PHIVOLCS has been issuing notices about seismic unrest warning the few people living in Taal.

Aside from the horrible outcome of what happened, the victims are now starting to become ill and are all afraid of what could happen to them if not given the proper care.     Unfortunately, the suspect is now nowhere to be found. The victims were not even aware of the suspect’s whereabouts.     According to the one who posted, a certain media will then cover the story of these women, to inform and especially warn those who would dare to undergo such procedure.

    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.
