This graphic was created by information designer Anna Vital, read herfull article here.
Step by Step: How Elon Musk Built His Empire (by Anna Vital)“The next Bill Gates will not build an operating system. The next Larry Page or Sergey Brin won’t make a search engine. Tomorrow’s champions will not win by competing ruthlessly in today’s marketplace. They will escape competition altogether, because their businesses will be unique.”– Peter Thiel in “Zero to One” In the bookZero to One, prominent entrepreneur and investor Peter Thiel shares his vision on what it takes to create an extraordinary company. Specifically, Thiel believes that instead of making incremental upgrades to an existing product or service, a company must aim to do something completely new to avoid ruthless competition. While Thiel has worked with many impressive people over the years, Thiel points to Elon Musk as a particularlysuccessful memberof the Paypal Mafia that has gone “zero to one” many times.

From Pinas Dekada 80's


Tara,Sariwain natin muli ang ating kabataan tuwing sasapit ang PASKO! Isa ka ba sa mga bata sa Dekada 80 na nakaranas mag KAROLING? :)

Sa Pilipinas, ipinagdiriwang ng mga kabataan ang pasko sa tradisyonal na Kantang Pamasko – pumupunta sa iba’t ibang bahay at kumakanta ng kantang pasko. Remedyo na mga instrumento tulad ng mga tamborines na gawa ng mga tansan na nasa isang wire. Kasama ang tradisyonal na awit ng “Namamasko po!”, ang mga kabataan o umaawit ay nag-aantabay sa nagmamay-ari ng bahay na bigyan ng pabuya tulad ng barya. Pagkatapos na mabigyan ng barya, ang mga kabataan o mga umawit ay nagpapasalamat sabay kumanta ng...
“Thank you, thank you, ang babait ninyo, thank you!” ♥
Isang halimbawa ng paskong awit ay ang “Sa may bahay ang aming bati”

Sa may báhay ang áming báti:
"Merry Christmas na maluwalháti!"
Ang pag-íbig, pag siyàng naghári,
Aràw-áraw ay mágiging Paskó lagí!
Chorus:
Ang sanhî po ng pagparíto,
Ay híhingi po ng áginaldo.

The Last Stand Trailer Official

Image
Action icon Arnold Schwarzenegger makes his much-anticipated return to the big screen in Korean director Kim Jee-woon's hard-hitting US directorial debut, THE LAST STAND.

After leaving his LAPD narcotics post following a bungled operation that left him wracked with remorse and regret, Sheriff Ray Owens (Schwarzenegger) moved out of Los Angeles and settled into a life fighting what little crime takes place in sleepy border town Sommerton Junction. But that peaceful existence is shattered when Gabriel Cortez (Eduardo Noriega), the most notorious, wanted drug kingpin in the western hemisphere, makes a deadly yet spectacular escape from an FBI prisoner convoy.

Miss Philippines Is 1st Runner Up In the Miss Universe Pageant

Image
From the Janine Tugonon Facebook Page.

MANILA, Philippines - Shortly after her first runner-up finish in this year's Miss Universe pageant, Miss Philippines Janine Tugonon shared her thoughts about the final seconds of the competition.

In an interview on ANC on Thursday, Tugonon said she honestly thought that she could be the third Filipina to get the Miss Universe crown.

"I want to be honest na siyempre, oo naman, naisip ko na 'yun, may pag-asa ang Pilipinas. Pero siyempre, inihanda ko na rin ang sarili ko [na matalo]," she said.

"Dapat mag-expect ka ng best pero at the same time, maging humble ka na rin to accept na hindi ka rin mananalo. Parang ganoon," she added.

Tugonon placed second in the 61st Miss Universe pageant, losing to Olivia Culpo of the United States.

The Filipina beauty said she felt nervous yet happy that she made it to the Top 2.

"Nagpra-pray lang ako noon. Sabi ko 'Lord, thank you. Thank you talaga,'" she said.

Christmas - More Fun in the Philippines

Image
I saw this on Magic 89.9's Facebook Page.


I must agree, Christmas is more fun in the Philippines. The lights, the atmosphere, the endless shopping, the food, the parties and people enjoying the Christmas spirit.

If you've never been to the Philippines, one of the best times to visit is Christmas. Sure, you might experience endless traffic because everybody seems to be out shopping, but that's a small inconvenience compared to what you will experience this time of year. Nobody enjoys Christmas as much as Filipinos do.

Make sure you stay until New Year where you'll have people lighting fireworks and making lots of noise.

Oh, and make sure you bring loose pants because you'll surely be eating lots of food for days.

Bishop Compares Pres. Aquino to Connecticut Shooter

From Philstar.com

MANILA, Philippines - The fight against the controversial Reproductive Health (RH) bill is the biggest challenge the Catholic Church is facing this Christmas season, an official of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) said yesterday.

Batangas Archbishop Ramon Arguelles yesterday said that while a 20-year-old gunman killed 20 children in the US, President Aquino would be killing millions of children with a stroke of a pen if he signs the RH bill into law.

“Our President intends to kill 20 million children with a fountain pen…to sign the RH bill into law,” he said.

He said that if this happens, the womb of the mother would no longer be the safest place.

“The RH bill is against life (and) so much young blood (would be) shed. May our leaders not give the Divine Child the same Herodian gift of 2,000 years ago: death of the innocents,” said the Batangas prelate.


What an asshole.

Top 10 Worst Reasons For Voting No To The RH Bill

After 14 years, the RH Bill has finally passed the second reading. Here are the top 10 reason for those congressmen who voted "no" to the bill.

Credit goes to John Dy. Here's a note on the photo above.

The ranking is subjective of course. So feel free to rank them yourselves. Let's see who will emerge number 1. :D

CLARIFICATION: #9-10 is not a direct quote. My mistake for putting the quotation marks. The "and you know the rest" is added by me because he recited the entire prayer and I couldn't put the whole thing in the space.

A Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III - Official Trailer

Image
Set in a stylized Los Angeles, A GLIMPSE INSIDE THE MIND OF CHARLES SWAN III is a playful comedy of lost love, friendship, revenge fantasies, and Brandy Alexanders. Charles (Charlie Sheen) is a successful graphic designer whose fame, money and charm have provided him with a seemingly perfect life. When his true love, a perplexing beauty named Ivana, suddenly breaks off their relationship, Charles' life falls apart, and he swirls into a downward spiral of doubt, confusion and reflection. With the support of his loyal intimates—Kirby (Jason Schwartzman), Saul (Bill Murray), and his sister, Izzy (Patricia Arquette)—he begins the hard road of self-evaluation to come to terms with a life without Ivana. The film begs the question: Is it possible to love and hate someone at the same time?

House passes RH bill on second reading

From the Inquirer.

MANILA, Philippines—After fourteen years of being stuck in Congress, legislators finally put to a historic vote and passed the Reproductive Health Bill before dawn Thursday.

With 113 votes on affirmative, 104 negative and three abstention, the RH Bill was approved on second reading, the most critical voting period for a legislation.

The lawmakers went on a lengthy nominal voting, in which each lawmaker had three minutes each to explain his or her vote, after doubts were expressed about the voice vote earlier done on the bill. The tally of the votes was announced at about 2 a.m. Thursday.

The reproductive health bill gives the national government the mandate to make reproductive health services accessible to poor families through information and education and the provision of free contraceptives.

Unlike his earlier statement that the closing of the amendment period would be initiated by the opposition, House majority leader Neptali Gonzales II moved to terminate …

Justin Bieber mocks Manny Pacquiao on Instagram, draws ire of boxer’s fans

Image
Justin Bieber mocked Manny Pacquiao in a series of posts on Instagram on Sunday, triggering a tidal wave of verbal abuse from fans of the Filipino boxing superstar.

The Canadian singer — an associate of brash American boxing champion Floyd Mayweather – posted three pictures on his Instagram account that made fun of Pacquiao’s knockout defeat to Juan Manuel Marquez in their fourth fight held in Las Vegas on Saturday.

The first photo shows the knockdown Mayweather scored against Marquez during their 2009 fight in which Mayweather scored a dominant decision victory.

The photo bore the hashtag “No Competition”, implying that Mayweather is clearly superior to Pacquiao based on their respective performances against Marquez.


The second photo has Pacquiao’s prone knocked-out figure grafted diagonally into a photo of Michael Jackson and two backup dancers performing a gravity-defying dance move. It was captioned “ ”pacquiao doing the lean with MJ… Classic moment”.

Together with countless Filipinos around the globe, the family of Philippine boxing icon and Saranggani Rep. Manny Pacquiao, especially his wife Jinkee, who was at the fight ringside, could not help but cry when he lost by knockout to Mexican boxer Juan Manuel Marquez on Sunday.

"Daddy, Mommy, don't cry," Pacquiao's youngest child, Queenie told her parents during an interview on Unang Hirit on December 10. Queenie along with her siblings Jimuel, Michael, and Princess were interviewed at their home, while their parents were being interviewed in Las Vegas.

Both Pacquiao and his wife, Jinkee, were unable to hold back tears as they recalled the loss.

Jinkee recalled her fear upon seeing her husband unable to get up. "Takot na nanginginig ako na hindi ko alam kung anong nangyari. Kasi nga, first time siya na nakita ko siyang ganun na medyo matagal na nakabangon. Siyempre 'pag boksingero, siyempre buhay yung nakataya sa kanila," Jinkee said.

Thank You All For Your Educational E-mails

Got this from a friend.

=======================

I want to thank you all for your educational e-mails over the past year.
I am totally messed up now and have little chance of recovery.

I can no longer open a bathroom door without using a paper towel,
Nor let the waitress put lemon slices in my ice water without worrying
About the bacteria on the lemon peel.

I can't sit down on a hotel bedspread because I can only imagine
What has happened on it since it was last washed.

I have trouble shaking hands with someone who has been driving
Because the number one pastime while driving alone is picking one's nose.

Eating a little snack sends me on a guilt trip because I can only
Imagine how many gallons of Trans fats I have consumed over the years.

I can't touch any woman's handbag for fear she has placed it on
The floor of a public toilet.

I must send my special thanks for the email about rat poo
In the glue on envelopes because I now have to use a wet sponge with

In this age of cellphone cameras, whatever you do in public can easily be shared to the world. Unfortunately, it's always the bad things that happens that gets highlighted.

Ms. Amalayer

I saw this video being posted on Facebook. The story is this, this lady passenger on the LRT was apparently was told by the lady guard to go to the other line since she was on the wrong line. She apparently got mad and started yelling at the guard.

A bystander took a video of the event and it's now trending.

Here's the video.


The lady is now being called Ms. Amalayer (I'm a liar) because of her repeated use of the word.

Of course, Filipinos, being the ingenious people that they are have created a parody of the incident.


And of course, there's a Manga made of her.

Sotto apologizes to Kennedy family but denies plagiarizing speeches

From GMA News.

Senate Majority Floor Leader Vicente Sotto III on Tuesday apologized for upsetting the Kennedy family but maintained that he did not plagiarize parts of his speeches.

In a privilege speech on Tuesday, Sotto answered the allegations made against him by 37 individuals who filed an ethics complaint against him earlier in the day for alleged plagiarism.

He reiterated that he never claimed parts of his speech as his own and that he always said he got them from other sources.

"Wala po akong inangkin so papaano po ako mag-a-apologize ng plagiarism eh wala po akong plinagiarize... sinabi ko ngang hindi akin... para hong pinagpiplead guilty ako sa murder eh ang dapat charge physical injuries," he said.

Sotto said his accusers are still basing their allegation on the draft copy of his speech where his blanket attribution was not yet included.

MANILA, Philippines - Long is the saga of Sottogate, yet allegations against Senator Tito Sotto continue.

Now 4 US copyright holders have spoken out, including the president of the Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights: RFK’s daughter, Kerry Kennedy.

All this began again the other day, when Sarah Pope, Janice Formichella, and Peter Engelman issued a joint statement alleging that Sotto had “infringed on our intellectual property rights and plagiarized.”

Their protest was swiftly dismissed by Sotto and his staff, who, according to GMA News, “questioned its authenticity, pointing out that it did not even have an official letterhead.”

This, after Sotto’s chief of staff, Hector Villacorta, reportedly said they would address the issue only after the aggrieved parties complained.

Complain they have, in no uncertain terms. Yet when Formichella wrote about the issue in Ms. Magazine, Sotto churlishly said: “She is pathetic. She is just riding on to get famous.”

I found this wonderful short animation by Pixar called La Luna. It's has great story like one you'll get from a children's book. The number one reason Pixar is so good is not because of their 3D animation, but their storyline.

Steve Jobs' Yacht Venus Unveiled in Aalsmeer, The Netherlands

Image
On October 28th Steve Jobs' envisioned yacht Venus was unveiled in Aalsmeer, The Netherlands.

According to reports, the roughly 80-meter long hull of the ship is made completely of aluminum, while huge plate windows adorn the wheelhouse, saloon and main deck entrances, giving the ship a clean, open appearance. Continuing the spartan styling inside, the wheelhouse uses seven 27-inch iMacs running navigation, systems control and other seafaring software to assist in operating Venus.

Green Screen Technology

Image
Ever wonder how your favorite TV shows can afford to shoot on locations all around the world? Do they look for a place nearby that looks similar to where they want to shoot? For example, Downtown Toronto looks similar to New York, but it's cheaper to shoot there than in New York so some TV shows that are set in New York actually shoot in Toronto.

For example, the TV show X Files if any of you remember was shot entirely in Vancouver, Canada and around Vancouver even though the scenes where supposed to be all over the United States.

However, TV shows now shoots are set at all around the world specially action or spy series like "24". So how can they afford to shoot on location and still keep the series schedule? Well, the answer is, they shoot a lot of green screen.

I found this video showing how they use it on your favorite shows. It's really interesting to learn.

Fra Lippo Lippi

Image
Fra Lippo Lippi was a popular band in the Philippines in the late 1980s. According to Wikipedia "The band's popularity in the Philippines prompted them to tour the country in 1988. In Manila, their shows sold out six times over two weekends."

Here are some of their most popular songs and a couple that I like that were not as popular.

Brings back memories...

Ferdinand Marcos Compared to Other Presidents

Image
I saw this on the Pres. Ferdinand Emmanuel E. Marcos' Facebook Page.

It shows the academic achievement of former President Marcos in scoring the highest grade ever achieved in the Bar Exams with a 98.01% average.

It also shows the budget of Marcos over 20 years compared to the budget of President Cory Aquino and President Fidel Ramos according to a report by the National Statistic's Office.

I'm not sure if those numbers were adjusted for inflation and devaluation, so I won't really put much faith on those number. But it is interesting to know.

Cranky Old Man

Saw this article on Google+ under Compassion.

When an old man died in the geriatric ward of a nursing home in an Australian country town, it was believed that he had nothing left of any value.

Later, when the nurses were going through his meager possessions, They found this poem. Its quality and content so impressed the staff that copies were made and distributed to every nurse in the hospital.

One nurse took her copy to Melbourne. The old man's sole bequest to posterity has since appeared in the Christmas editions of magazines around the country and appearing in mags for Mental Health. A slide presentation has also been made based on his simple, but eloquent, poem.

And this old man, with nothing left to give to the world, is now the author of this 'anonymous' poem winging across the Internet.

Cranky Old Man

What do you see nurses? . . .. . .What do you see?
What are you thinking .. . when you're looking at me?

This is the unhappy truth about soda: http://therealbears.org

It wasn't so bad when soft drinks were the occasional treat. But now sugary drinks are the number one source of calories in the American diet. With one third of America overweight and another third obese, it's a wonder anyone is still swallowing what the soda companies are selling.

Big soda companies have billions of dollars to tell their story, but we have each other. Oh, and we have the truth. Help The Real Bears spread the truth about soda by sharing the film.

Grandma Still Drives

Got this from an e-mail.


Grandma is eighty-eight years old and still drives her own car. She writes:

Dear Granddaughter,

The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker.

I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting.

So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.

Boy, am I glad I did! What an uplifting experience followed.

I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed.

It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed.

I found that lots of people love Jesus!
While I was sitting there, the guy behind me started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!'

'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!'…

Felix Baumgartner's Supersonic Freefall From 128k Feet

Image
After flying to an altitude of 39,045 meters (128,100 feet) in a helium-filled balloon, Felix Baumgartner completed a record breaking jump for the ages from the edge of space, exactly 65 years after Chuck Yeager first broke the sound barrier flying in an experimental rocket-powered airplane. Felix reached a maximum of speed of 1,342.8 km/h (833mph) through the near vacuum of the stratosphere before being slowed by the atmosphere later during his 4:20 minute long freefall. The 43-year-old Austrian skydiving expert also broke two other world records (highest freefall, highest manned balloon flight), leaving the one for the longest freefall to project mentor Col. Joe Kittinger.


Here's the video on the test jump.
