The Newest Gentle C-Section Is Now The Latest Birthing Trend

    Getting pregnant and giving birth is two of the most magical and amazing moments of being a woman and of becoming a mom. Although it seems to be the most remarkable stage or transition from being a woman to becoming a mother, not all women are lucky enough to have a normal delivery due to several reasons. Caesarean section is often performed when the mother has health issues that need to be taken care of first. It is also done when the baby is not in the right position to be delivered normally.

    Almost all women would like to have a normal delivery due to financial concerns and even health issues. A normal delivery is also much anticipated because the mother plays the most important role in giving birth to her child. It is also the reason why some mothers felt a bit less of the birthing process because they were put to sleep during the caesarean section. 


    However to address this issue the caesarean section now has a new process called the gentle C-section. Unlike the traditional C-section, this new process is a lot more interactive because the mother is actually awake and conscious during the entire process. It is also unique because the baby is given the chance to gently pop out of the mother’s tummy making his or her way to the world.

    This new birthing process just went quite viral and people are really amazed on how a baby could possibly gently come out of from the mother on its own. Of course the doctors are there to assist, but they let the baby to have its moment of coming out. After the delivery, the baby is then given to the mother for them to have a skin to skin bond which is actually very essential for the baby. It allows the baby’s body to adjust to the temperature of his or her new environment with the help of the warmth that he or she gets from his or her mom. Before, this could only happen during a normal delivery, however big thanks to science, even C-section moms will now have the chance to hold their babies right after giving birth.

    Out of convenience and with the idea of recycling, people tend to make use of their used plastic bottles as water containers. It is a common practice done by most of the people. It is handy compared to pitchers because you can either place it horizontal or vertical. It saves much of the space inside the fridge and you don’t have to deal with broken pieces if you drop it accidentally. But are these things worth the potential harm of using such materials?     Have you ever noticed or checked on the expiry date printed on every plastic water bottle being sold? Most of the people would believe that those numbers or dates indicate the expiration date of the water. But how come water expires? Water can be contaminated but it never expires. The thing is those number or dates were actually intended for the plastic bottle itself. Plastic containers actually have expiration dates. If you keep on using those plastic bottles as water container then you are potentially risking your health.     Although plastic bottles were manufactured under strict supervision making sure that it is free from contaminants and safe for use, it still has its expiration date. It takes about 500 to 1000 years for plastics to decompose. Thinking that since plastics are non-biodegradable therefore it is safe for long term use is a complete mistake. Plastics don’t expire or degrade but the chemicals used to process the product actually do. It is where the potential risk of cancer comes in. Just imagine the chemicals contaminating in your daily drink every single day.      Instead of using plastic bottles, it is safer to use water containers that were made purposely for daily use. There are variety of tumblers and water containers where you can choose according to your needs. It is more ideal to use tumblers that are made from rubber inside of plastic. Rubber is more reliable compared to plastics and it does not cause contamination. Some water containers are also made from metals suited for hot drinks such as coffee.      By using a proper and more suitable water container you are eliminating the risk of cancer and you can even help save the environment by using these containers rather than consuming water from plastic bottles every now and then. You can carry it with you and have it refilled instead of buying new bottled water, adding more trash to the environment. 
    The idea of Killer Clown in the Philippines spread like wildfire in Social Medias and people have very amusing responses to it. Instead of being afraid of these guys, Filipinos have indeed a different taste of humor and not a single clown can win over it. However where did this very unusual craze started? How did it end up in the Philippines? Is there a truth behind this idea or is it purely a sort of social media prank?     Before reaching the Philippines, this killer clown crave have already gotten to some parts of USA and even in UK. This group even has their own social media account and they often post something about their next target like a sort of warning. It is obvious that they wanted to perpetrate fear in all possible areas they could cover. According to reports, there were several sightings of clowns dressed in very horrific attire. They often target children in streets, malls, and even in schools. There were even reports that these clowns were carrying kitchen knives and they chase kids with it.      Although there have been no reported cases of actual murder made by these killer clowns, their peculiar taste of thrill have caused great fear to several children already. Clowns are instead symbol of happiness and joyous childhood; however these guys are trying to create chaos in the minds of the people. On the other hand it can be noted that there are indeed several films in which clowns were actually killers, such as Killer Clowns, Dead Clowns, Poltergeist, and even Stephen King’s famous book entitled It.     But how did this craze reached the borders of the Philippines, if this originated somewhere in US? The most probable reason is because it made several rounds in the internet particularly in social media. Remember the ice bucket challenge? Or the different dance step challenges, such as the Harlem shake? Well, this Killer Clown Craze is no different at all. It reached the Philippines because there are also some folks who would like to take the challenge and experience the idea of spreading terror to other people. This sounds sick right? If there are indeed Filipinos who would want to be part of this craze, then it only shows that those who started it were successful in creating a chaos and terror.      However unlike the western countries, pranks like these don’t actually work in the Philippines. In fact, in a satire blog, the first emergent of killer clowns were robbed and mobbed by rugby boys in Quezon City. Despite being satire, this only shows that Filipinos are indeed full of sense of humor. Instead of eliciting fear, Filipinos are even excited to face these pranksters and teach them a good lesson that they will never forget.
    There is an old saying by Socrates that goes like this: “When our feet hurt, we hurt all over.” Old Sox was not just on a philosophical high when he said this; he was literally on a hunch.     Reflexology is one of the most popular alternate therapies known to man today. It’s founded on the belief that the nerve endings found in our feet, hands and ears have connections to certain parts of our bodies and when stimulated properly, this could trigger our body’s natural healing processes.     Doctors in the past have not accepted the idea of reflexology because many of its mechanisms do not match with physiological principles and is thereby hard to scientifically prove. I, for one, believe that one of the reasons why the medical world wants to brush off reflexology is because it gives them a run for their money. Which would you prefer? Paying thousands of pesos worth of numerous visits to the doctor (not to mention the payment for prescriptions, etc.)? Or a meager fee for a trip to the spa that could help pinpoint and soothe the problem areas away?     The good news is, this notion is now slowly being dismissed due to numerous findings that have risen to prove this otherwise. Here are some conclusions to these studies and reasons why you should give your feet a good rubbing: 1.    You will feel more energized and relaxed. Feeling tired and poofed out? Looking for some way to give an added spring to your step? Reflexology has been known help increase your body’s metabolism and energy flow by realigning the functions of different organs and muscle systems. 2.    You will feel relaxed. Research has also shown that people who had a recent session are reported to have their blood pressure decreased; their anxieties and stress reduced and have a feeling of being thoroughly refreshed in general afterwards. Because of this, reflexology has also been known to be used to cure people who suffer from insomnia and other sleep disorders. 3.    Your bodily pains are reduced and relieved. Mainly, people resort to reflexology as a way to get rid of pain. A lot of studies have found that reflexology has proven to have reduced pain in people having migraines, headaches, chest pains, kidney stones, osteoarthritis, diabetes, and even AIDS. 4.    You heal more rapidly. With patients feeling much better after being relieved from bodily pains, combining this with their nerves actively stimulated and their body able to properly circulate blood and oxygen better into its systems, physical recovery has been intensely multiplied.   5.    Good for women who are either menstruating or are pregnant. Reflexology can do wonders for women who suffer from dysmenorrhea, as it helps soothe PMS and menstrual cramps. Women, especially those who underwent a lengthy time in giving birth, would benefit from this very greatly as they will heal faster.
Summer is almost here! With longer days and shorter nights, it’s a great time to have some fun in the sun with family and friends. It may be great for your mood but maybe not for your skin… This would seriously curb the fun factor. Here are 3 well-known skin problems you will most likely get in summer time and ways to treat them or much better, avoid them (as they say, “prevention is better than cure”, right?): 1.    Sunburn   How you get it: Hello sunburn, my old friend. It’s like being run over by a sun truck. Depending on your skin, staying out too long can make your skin red, hot to touch, and painful or itchy at best. In severe cases, you can run a high fever and get chills. How to prevent it: Invest in good quality sunscreen that would match your skin type. Don’t stay out too long in the sun but find shade. Wear the right gear as much as possible, like wide-brimmed hats, sunglasses, UPF clothing, etc. How to treat it: As soon as you feel your skin getting tingly or looks pinkish, get out of the sun immediately! For instant relief, place a cold compress, like a damp towel, on the skin. Drink lots and lots of water. Taking a cool shower would help tremendously as well; just gently pat the skin afterwards. For the face, splash cool water and gently pat with a soft towel. For skin and face, use moisturizer containing soy or aloe vera (pure ones would be awesome too). Stay away from lotions containing these: petroleum, benzocaine, lidocaine. 2.    Irritated Skin and Dry Hair   How you get it: Staying too long in the pool and sun can dry up your body’s natural oils. Chlorine from the swimming pool can leave your skin tight and itchy and your hair dry and giving it split ends. How to prevent it: Before swimming, protect your skin by applying water-proof sunscreen. For your hair, get it wet with clean water first and coat it with some hair conditioner so that it won’t absorb the chlorine once you dive in the pool. Time yourself and learn to know your limits. How to treat it: Because of the chlorine, it should’ve already got rid of any sweat and dirt on you so you don’t really need to scrub. Just some gentle bathing and rinsing with a mild soap would do the trick to remove the smell. 3.    Acne Break-out   How you get it: Because of the excess sweat and summer heat combined with surrounding dirt and your body’s natural oils, your pores will get clogged. This results into every teenager’s nightmare. How to prevent it: To avoid this perennial monstrosity, make sure to wipe away sweat with a clean towel and to take a shower if need be. Also, don’t forget to wash sweaty clothes before wearing them again. How to treat it: If the problem started because of clogged pores, the solution is simply the opposite. Unclog them by cleansing and exfoliating. One cannot go without the other. Cleansing will help stop buildup of bacteria in your pores. If you have oily skin, better wash your face first thing in the morning and before you go to sleep. Exfoliating, on the other hand, will get rid of the dead skin inside your pores. You should do this 2-3 times a week.
    The City of Cagayan de Oro is also the capital of Misamis Oriental. It is also the regional center of Northern Mindanao. Tourists and travelers from time to time flock the city. Because of this, it is titled as the city of golden friendship. Ironically, before the peace, it went through a tiresome war that made its mark in the history of the Philippines.     For 276 years the Spanish Colonizers dominated the Philippines. But on the 10th of December 1898 the Treaty of Paris was signed by the United States and Spain in Paris. In the treaty it was agreed that the country would handed over to the Americans in return for a payment. The amount paid to Spain by the Americans was 120,000,0000 dollars. In other words, Philippines was bought by the United States from Spain.     In Cagayan de Oro, the Americans’ arrival was much received with restiveness and hostility by the Kagay-anons. They did not agree to the occupation of the US. And so a revolutionary group called “ Tercios Revolucionarios” was created and organized by the people of Cagayan. Its main leaders were people who are prominent even in today’s times. These people included known names in Cagayan de Oro such as Apolinar Velez, Nicanor Capistrano, Roa Y. Racines, Tirso Neri, and Cayetano Pacana.     The prominent leaders of this organization purposefully trained and prepared the Kagay-anons mentally and physically. Their main goal was to resist and push back the Americans from entering their town. But there was a setback to their plans as they have realized. Their men had only bolos and some rifles as weapons to fight the Americans. But nevertheless, these were the men who fought in the famous April 7, 1900 battle and that of Macahambus.     The invasion of Cagayan de Oro by the Americans came on 31 March 1900. They first bombarded the town and burned the flag of Macabalan. The fighters of the Tercios Revolucionarios were already prepared and trained even before the invasion came. But they waited until April 7 to attack the Americans. Their army was headed by General Nicolas Capistrano. Originally, they were camped at Gagno plateau at Bukidnon which is located 9km from Cagayan.      The ringing of San Agustin Church’s bell was the go signal for them to attack the Americans when they arrived. The Revolucionarios attacked in a systematized wave. The first wave were men with bolos only as weapons. Then next to them were the riflemen. They were then followed by cavalrymen. Their main plan was to make a sneak attack on the American soldiers. But because some of the macheteros(men with bolos) shouted battle cries, their plan was foiled.     The Americans were quick to react to the battle cries of the natives carrying bolos and so there raged a battle between the well-armed Americans and the Revolucionarios. When Gen. Capistrano realized impending defeat, he ordered for a retreat. The most intense fighting happened in the town’s plaza, which is now called the Gaston Park. But the Kagay-anons stood no chance against the Americans. After an hour they were defeated and the remnants of the Revolucionarios were chased away from the city.     Even with so little hope of winning, the Revolucionarios fought with much valiance. But still they were defeated. When peace returned to Cagayan de Oro, Tirso Neri became its first Mayor. There he ordered the opening of Divisoria.

    Of all the popular places in the world, Japan seemed to hold the reputation of having bizarre things or practices that you could never imagine such as the proliferation of their porn industry.

Later on an anime or Hentai has been made to proliferate pornography and finally short video clips were created.     Although it seems legal in Japan, there are actually rules and provisions that the porn industries are currently following such as the censorship of the actor and actresses genitals. It is not limited to live action but as well as in anime and manga.
