    The old proverb, “Laughter is the best medicine”, originally came from the Bible. Proverbs 17:22 says that, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” In literature, we can find numerous writers magnifying the powers of laughter. To name a few, E. E. Cummings wrote that, “The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.” An unknown joker wrote, “Take two jokes and call me in the morning.” A worthwhile and free prescription, if you ask me.     It’s no wonder; even modern day science has come to attest this phenomenon. Studies have been steadily on the rise in backing it up. Here are a few reasons why you should never let a day pass by without having a few minutes of a good old chuckle:   1.    Laughter is good for the heart. Maybe not for a specific ailment, but laughter does have healing properties, according to studies. A good belly laugh can cause your brain to release endorphins, our bodies’ “happy pill”. Endorphins are pleasure-inducing neurotransmitters that help increase blood flow and reduce cholesterol build-up. The Biblical proverb, “A merry heart doeth good like a medicine”, really does hold true, even in a medical sense. 2.    Laughter has numerous physical benefits. Research has found these powerful benefits in laughter therapy: •    Improves oxygen intake •    Steadies blood pressure •    Unwinds muscles •    Improves sleep •    Eases digestion or calms stomach aches •    Improve overall mood and attitude   3.    Laughter is a powerful cure to stress. A good laugh can do wonders in bringing balance to your mind and body. It helps lighten burdens, reduce pain, ease up pressure and as a whole, supports both physical and emotional health. 4.    Laughter is contagious and helps you build connections. You noticed how, when a person takes a picture of you, you’re not the only one smiling at the camera? Even the photographer is smiling with you. This isn’t just a way to bond or encourage you to smile, but is actually caused by “mirror neurons”. When you’re down on your lumps, sticking around with jokers would be a great way to lift that frown off your face. Not only that, when there’s relational tension and conflicts, laughter can help you reconnect, build rapport, and even release anger and aid you in forgiving more easily. 5.    Laughter makes you tough. People who persevere and resilient have been known to be happy people. People who know how to laugh at themselves tend to accept their mistakes more easily, thereby enabling them to acknowledge these mistakes, recognize what went wrong, and overall, learn to overcome them. And with the ability to endure, success will be within reach. 6.    Laughter can help burn calories. OK, so maybe not a whole afternoon of gym’s workout worth of calories. But one study noted that laughing for a good 10-15 minutes is the equivalent of 40 calories. Also, your body will be more in sync and filled with happy neurons that could help make going to the gym an overall better experience. It’s a win-win situation, really. 7.    Laughter is good therapy for patients. Laughter therapy is now being explored by researchers on its effect especially in cancer patients. With its ability to decrease stress-related hormones, it can distract them from the patients from pain and boost their immune system. I know, cancer is no laughing matter, but as hard as it may seem to be, laughing may induce physical changes in the body. It may not be the next cure to cancer but would be a tremendous help in the overall healing process.
     So what’s new with the present administration? If you are thinking of applying for a passport but you dread the idea of doing so because of the long queues that you need to experience, well now is actually the best time to apply. You will no longer experience hassle in transaction such as queuing for quite a number of hours. You can now set an appointment online at your most convenient date and time. You will be asked to provide a certain date, time and your preferred location for you to submit your passport application.      Although online appointment has been already used in previous years, the administration right now has already changed the system provider for the online appointment. If you are going to visit the DFA website you will see this flashing in your screen.      As part of transparency it has been indicated for public consumption the knowledge on who is currently operating the system or the name of the company provider.      Now what’s the difference? IF you are going to set an appointment right at this very moment you will surely notice the response speed of their website. You don’t have to wait for hours just to move on the next phase of booking an appointment online. Also, once you were able to finish setting up your appointment you will immediately receive and email that contains your confirmation code and direction on what you are going to do.      Despite the improvement the DFA personnel, headed by DFA Secretary, he is till asking the public to bear with the new system upgrade as they are still trying their best to provide the best services that they could give to the people.      Since it seems like there is no more problem with the agency in terms of appointment, it is now the responsibility of the person who wish to apply to prepare ALL the necessary documents to make the transaction smooth and hassle free.      Nonetheless, the DFA is reminding the public to be serious when it comes to setting an appointment. According to their database a lot of people are setting appointments but end up not showing at all. This can actually waste the agencies effort to provide quality service to the people. Thus DFA reminds their clients the option of cancelling their appointment date in case something happened or they are not available on the said date. They would still be able to set another transaction on a different time. Meanwhile those who are toying with the website are also reminded of being banned if they continue doing such unprofessional act towards the agency.

    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.
    As simple and as straight forward as its use is, towels are a basic necessity for everyday life. But as important as they are, not a lot of people think to change them often. But because of the fact that we usually use these on a daily basis gives us all the more reason to swap them as soon as possible. The question is: how often is it safe enough to change towels? Here are a few factors:   1.    Number of Uses Think of washing your towel not in the number of days you’ve used it but in the number of times. The reason for this is because we differ in how many times a day or week we use it. Some of us like to do so daily; others every other day. Others still like to use their towels more than once, especially on a hot summer day. Recommended: Generally speaking, after 3-4 times, best if you throw in the towel, buddy. 2.    The Environment of Your Home Moisture – one of the essential components necessary for life. Good news for us who want to keep well-moisturized skin, but bad news for your towel. Moisture equals turning your beloved towel into an evil breeding ground for bacteria and all sorts of yuck. So if you live in a place that’s on the damp side, this means your towel will be facing the dryer more often than it likes.   3.    Where You Dry Off Your Towels Towels, though basically designed for heavy use, may start getting smelly if you don’t dry them off completely. It’s best to dry them outside and ideally, under direct sunlight to kill off those icky germs and deodorize the smell. But if you don’t want to go through the hassle and keep them inside, or you live in a place where you’re unable to put them outside, you may have to replace your towels more frequently. 4.    Your Health and Lifestyle For people who have sensitive skin and are prone to breakouts, a filthy bathroom towel could be your worst nightmare. When you rub this on your skin, the excess dirt and grime can clog your pores and result to a breakout of unsightly blemishes. Not only that, friction from rubbing can cause acne. The recommended way to use your towel is to pat your skin dry, don’t rub! For people who have an active lifestyle, whether you’re a gym buff or have a physically demanding job, sweat would most likely make your towel smell. The moment your nasal faculties alert you of even the slightest hint of a stench, replace that thing ASAP.
