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.

Bonifacio Global City Guards Arresting Two British Nationals

Image
This video shows that Bonifacio Global City (BGC) guards arresting two British Nationals. According to the report, the 2 Englishmen (Sam and Chris) where skateboarding along Fifth Avenue when two lady policewomen instructed them nicely that they could not skate there and told them to do it at the park, which they did.

According to the Englismen, while at the park, a lady marshal shown on 1:16 of the video stopped them rudely. They explained to the marshal that the policewomen told them they can skate there. The marshal called for backup and confiscated their skateboard. One of the Englishman (Sam) said he got scared and ran off. The marshals successfully caught him as shown in the video.


According to a comment by Julie on the When In Manilapage. She said,

I was there at the park when it started. A lady guard was asking them nicely to transfer since the park is not intended for skateboarders. The simple argument went wild when one of the foreigners went amok and hit the lady guard sever…

Man with Armalite Riding in Tandem

Image
You ever read about the news about how our politicians are trying to stop crimes being by criminals riding on motorcycles? You know, the ones where they say that riding in tandem is going to be banned. And how they also want to ban motorcyclist from wearing helmets so they can't hide their identity.

Well...what the hell do you want to call this?

This photo was taken along Abad Santos where a man was spotted riding a motorcycle, in tandem, carrying an armalite.





I guess they want to make a law banning riding in a motorcycle with an armalite next.

VP Binay's World Class Parking Building

Image
Vice President Jejomar Binay built a parking building for the city of Makati when he was the mayor. The building is now under investigation for being overpriced after being found to have cost P2.7B to build an 11 storey parking building.

Senators Trillanes IV and Koko Pimentel III conducted and ocular inspection of the building on Monday, Sept 1, 2014.

Obviously, the building is way overpriced. We can all understand if it is over budget, since most constructions do become over budget especially if it is done by the government. However, being over P1B over-budget (according to some estimates) is just outright robbery.

When grilled during a Senate hearing committe, Mayor Junjun Binay said the reason for the price is because the Makati City Hall 2 is a world-class.

Here are some of the reactions from the online community about the building


After the fierce reaction of the online community, Senator Nancy Binay argues what "world-class" means. She said that "beauty is in the…

Lito Lapid will KICK YOUR ASS!

Image
First of all, yes, this is the famous movie where Lito Lapid aimed his gun at the blade of the dagger and split the bullet killing two people with one shot. San Basilio is a 1981 Filipino action film directed by Joey del Rosario and Tony Cruz. Featuring the masked folk hero Julio Valiente, the film stars Lito Lapid, a farmer and altar boy who assumes the role of Valiente to save the town from the clutches of the evil landlord Señor Escobar. The henchmen of Señor Escobar (Johnny Delgado) prepare their weapons to ambush Julio Valiente. Elsewhere in the town of San Basilio, pregnant Dolor dela Cruz (Perla Bautista) is in the verge of giving birth. Valiente meets Escobar's group near the sugarcane fields and kills some of his men.

Traitorous gunmen, however, kill Valiente. Meanwhile, Dolor gives birth to a child named Estanislao, or Islaw for short. Escobar drags the body of Valiente to the churchyard in the town plaza. Upon reaching the place, he asserts that San Basilio has lost it…

The Imitation Game - Official UK Teaser Trailer

This looks like a good movie.

From the Youtube description.

The Imitation Game is a nail-biting race against time following Alan Turing (pioneer of modern-day computing and credited with cracking the German Enigma code) and his brilliant team at Britain's top-secret code-breaking centre, Bletchley Park, during the darkest days of World War II. Turing, whose contributions and genius significantly shortened the war, saving thousands of lives, was the eventual victim of an unenlightened British establishment, but his work and legacy live on.

THE IMITATION GAME stars Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness, TV's Sherlock) as Alan Turing and Keira Knightley (Atonement) as close friend and fellow code-breaker Joan Clarke, alongside a top notch cast including Matthew Goode (A Single Man), Mark Strong (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Rory Kinnear (Skyfall), Charles Dance (Gosford Park, TV's Game of Thrones), Allen Leech (In Fear, TV's Downton Abbey) and Matthew Beard (An Ed…

Why Are People Still Supporing Senator Bong Revilla?

Image
Senator Bong Revilla turned himself in at the Sandiganbayan on Friday amid shrieking fans and supporters. He was waving and smiling to his fans like it was a movie premiere.

As his mugshot was taken, he was also seen smiling like it was a pictorial.


Prior to that, he was seen wearing a T-shirt with the bible verse "The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: What can man do unto me? - Psalm 118:6".


Really? He really thinks that God supports him for stealing millions of funds from the people who are homeless and hungry because of him? Are we to believe that he is innocent that he hasn't stolen a single centavo from the Pork Barrel funds?

What appalls me is that even with all the evidence and knowledge that he stole money from the people. These people still support him.


Why do Filipinos do this? Is it because he's a movie star? Shouldn't the people be cursing him and spitting at him for ruining their lives? As long as we as a nation continue supporting politicians as …

Isang taon palang ako,

Grade 2 walong taon palang,

Grade 6 labing dalawa na ako,
kasing dami na ng pamilya ko.
Sabi mo pasensya na,
walang pera kaya magdrop out ka.

Ina ko sabi mo kami'y mahal nyo,
aray ko bat di kayo nagplano.
Sana di gutom at nag aaral pa,
alaga't malusog ang buong pamilya.

Propagating Herbs

Image
When I get into something, I tend to get obsessive about it. I read a lot of books and websites to learn as much as I can on something I want to do. Since starting my herb garden, I've read countless websites and borrowed a bunch of books from the library to learn more. I've never really did any successful gardening before. The strawberry plant I got a few years ago died in a few weeks when birds ate all the strawberries and it didn't survive in the summer.

Now, I learned some new techniques and I think learning to propagate (breed/spread) plants is a great way to expand what you have from one plants to several to have more success.

But the thing that I discovered that really helps is putting a cover on young plants. It's not a new idea, but I didn't really see any websites suggesting this. I got this idea more when I visited a greenhouse and saw how healthy the plants were. I thought I could simulate it on a small scale by putting covers in my plants.

Herb Garden

Image
I found a new hobby growing a herb garden. It kind of started when I was young when I heard the song Scarborough Fair by Simon and Garfunkel. I was kind of intrigue with the part of the lyrics where it says "parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme". I wondered what they were when I was young and learned they were herbs and I learned that herbs are used for medicine and cooking. We never actually used those herbs in Filipino food other than parsley when it's used mostly as a garnish.

Later, when I got older and learned how to cook. I learned that it's used mostly in Italian cooking. When I saw some TV show by Jamie Oliver called Jamie at Home where he shows one major ingredient per show and in some episodes, he shows his garden with potatoes, tomatoes and herbs which he uses for his cooking. It was a really interesting show and I really got interested in starting a herb garden of my own. Well, I don't have a garden, I just have a patio so I never really got anything sta…

Prison Inmates Welcome Cedric Lee

MANILA, Philippines – The Southern Police District (SPD) has received the warrants of arrest against businessman Cedric Lee, model Deniece Cornejo and several others over the serious illegal detention case filed against them by television host-actor Vhong Navarro, a radio report said.

SPD Director Chief Superintendent Jose Erwin Villacorte was quoted in the report as saying they received the warrants on Monday noon.

Police could not say for sure why the warrants do not yet include Cedric Lee’s sister Bernice and Jose Paolo Gregorio Calma.

The warrants of arrest were issued by the Taguig City Regional Trial Court Branch 271 against Lee, Cornejo and their co-accused Jed Fernandez, Simeon Raz and Ferdinand Guerrero, after they had been issued arrest warrants for a separate grave coercion case on April 16.

Cornejo and Fernandez have posted a P12,000 bail last Wednesday for the grave coercion case. Those who have yet to do so are Lee, his sister Bernice, Raz, Calma and Guerrero.

Computer History Museum Makes Historic MS-DOS and Word for Windows Source Code Available to the Public

Mountain View, Ca—March 25, 2014— The Computer History Museum (CHM) announced today that it has, with permission from Microsoft Corporation, made available original source code for two historic programs: MS-DOS, the 1982 "Disk Operating System" for IBM-compatible personal computers, and Word for Windows, the 1990 Windows-based version of their word processor.

IBM went outside the company for many hardware and software components of their 1981 personal computer. Though most vendors were kept in the dark about the project, code-named “Chess,” IBM developed a unique relationship between their Boca Raton-based team and Microsoft, then a small company based in Seattle.

Microsoft, which was providing the BASIC language interpreter, agreed to also supply an operating system. Without their own operating system already in place, they licensed a product from nearby Seattle Computer Products and worked closely with IBM to make the changes they wanted. It shipped as "PC-DOS" f…

Banco De Oro's Singit Queens

I saw this on my Facebook feed. I thought I'd share.



Photos of several “VIP” BDO employees taken around 7:30 in the morning on March 24, 2014 at the Quezon Ave shuttle terminal going to Ortigas.

What’s so special about them? Well, people who regularly take the shuttle to Ortigas at the Quezon Ave terminal call them “The Singit Queens”. And I can see why given the fact that I saw them in action numerous times.

My wife and I recently begun taking the shuttle going to our respective offices in Ortigas, and most the convenient terminal for us is the Quezon Ave terminal. The first few days were quite normal. The queue was long but not as long as with the other terminals. Then recently, my wife and I started noticing these BDO employees. At first there were only one of them in the queue, but after several minutes another will come and join the 1st one not minding the other people who waited for several minutes in line. Ok lang sana kung isa lang ang sisingit, but then, after several mo…

Netizens hits back at the government after the distasteful ad by the BIR against doctors.


BIR's Disgusting Ad Against Doctors

Image
The Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) in its effort to increase tax collection puts out ads and press release identifying sectors of society who they believe are not paying proper taxes. They do this by shaming people and business through these ads.

On their latest ad, they targeted doctors by showing them as burdens to society for not paying their share of taxes. The image is a doctor making over a million Pesos being carried on the shoulder of a lowly teacher making much less but paying full tax.


Based on this ad, the BIR is saying that the doctors and other professionals are the burden to society because they don't pay their taxes.

Apparently, the hundreds and thousands of pesos they spent learning their profession and countless hours of study and upgrading they do every year to save and improve people's lives are worth nothing.

Maybe there is a reason people don't like paying their taxes, because all they see is endless traffic, bad road, bad government and the only peo…
