Tsunami - Predicted to HIT on 22nd

I just wanted 2 let you know that please stay away from the beaches all around in the month of July.. There is a prediction that there will be another tsunami or earthquake hitting on July 22nd. It is also when there will be sun eclipse.
Predicted that it is going 2 be really bad and countries like Malaysia (Sabah & Sarawak), Singapore, Maldives, Australia, Mauritius, Si Lanka, India, Indonesia , Philippines are going 2 be badly hit. Please try and stay away from the beaches in July. Better 2 be safe than sorry. Please pass the word around. Please also pray for all beings.

Initially I didn’t believe when I received the email about the warning. Thought to be some rumours,; But when I went into the topic, I got the very genuine result from a very genuine people: NASA. Although it is not connecting with the predicted quake, it warns about the influence of Total Eclipse in July 22nd. NASA in their website, warns about the Total Eclipse for July 22nd 2009.

Report from
NASA: On Wednesday, 2009 July
22, a total eclipse of the Sun is visible from within a narrow corridor that traverses half of Earth. The path of the Moon’s umbral shadow begins in India and crosses through Nepal , Bangladesh , Bhutan , Myanmar and China . After leaving mainland Asia, the path crosses Japan’s Ryukyu Islands and curves southeast through the Pacific Ocean where the maximum duration of totality reaches 6 min 39 s. A partial eclipse is seen within the much broader path of the Moon’s penumbral shadow, which includes most of eastern Asia, Indonesia , and the Pacific Ocean.

The eclipse quake theory is as follows: When the gravitational force of the sun and moon are both pulling on a plate that has not had series of recent earth quakes, the
extra pull is all that is needed to “Pop the seam” and cause a major quake.

Japans Tectonic
Plates
6+ Magnitude Quake
on July 22 2009 at 3:00PM Local Japanese time. This will be follower by two level 5+ Earthquakes and a Tsunami between 5:00PM and 7:00PM. The tsunami will start out in the pacfic ocean (to the South East of Japan … Along the fault line) and hit all the islands to the south west of Japan , Indonesia and even reach New Zealand . The major quakes will actually be along the fault lines in the Ocean.

Zones

The Theory says that the gravitational pull of the Sun and Moon pulling together will do the following things:
1. Lift the Tectonic Plates
2. Cause the Tide to rise more than usual
3. Cause an Underground Molten Magma tide to dip and raise the plates following the water tide.

Taken all the time data from the Nasa eclipse site into consideration, the four tectonic plates in the region, it is assumed as an hour delay for each event following the lunar eclipse will be there. I assumed that the events would
last longer for the fluids, water and molten magma than for dry land.

The blue path above shows the lunar path that will achieve the full solar eclipse at around 11:30 AM to 12:30 PM. Red dots show where the solar eclipse will be full.

After reading, all that is mentioned above there is a contradiction for what is
stated above:

Professor Kerry Sieh, Di rector, Earth Observatory of Singapore, said: “In the last 110 years or so, there have been about 85 really big earthquakes — 8 (on the Richter magnitude scale) or greater. And only two of those occurred on the same day as an eclipse. And even those were a partial eclipse, and happened in a different place from where the eclipse happened.” While the professor does not think the email is true, he warns that the research does show that parts of Asia facing the Pacific Ocean could be hit by a Tsunami. He said the impact on Singapore will be minimal, but not so for cities further up north. “It turns out that by the time the wave produced by the underwater disturbance got to Singapore , it would be only about a metre high. But in Macau and Hong Kong , it would about 10 to 15 metres high,” said
Professor Sieh. He said more work needs to be done to determine if the fault lines along the Pacific Ocean floor will break in such a way that could see a repeat of the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004.

Lets see, what is gonna happen on July 22nd, 2009 and lets pray to almighty that nothing wrong happens. Also, lets be away from Beaches on that day, as why do we have to take a RISK??

Death of Michael Jackson

I'm not a loyal fan of Michael Jackson but I do have copies of his CD and VCD. I also have a lot of favorites from his singles.

His death did shock me and more so on the cause of his death. We really can't say when our time will end

Problem with my current maid

Hindi pa nga nakakabalik ang ate for work, may panibagong problem na naman ako sa bago kong maid na kakapasok lang nung linggo. Mukha hindi sila magkasundo ng mother-in-law ko. Kahit yung dati naming all around help na pansamantalang nag aalaga kay JM e hindi gusto ang ugali nya. Sumasakit na tuloy ang ulo ko. Hindi rin daw sya magandang manamit sabi ng karamihan at mahilig daw magdabog pag pinagsasabihan.

Hindi ko pa sya nakakausap kaya ayaw ko pang mag comment. Pero bukas ng umaga plano ko na syang kausapin. Hay sana naman makinig sya ng ayos pag pinagsabihan ko

The peace we knew, before progress set in

POSTSCRIPT By Federico D. Pascual Jr.
Thursday, January 10, 2008
(Grabbed from the Internet, author unknown, edited a bit, forwarded with impunity.)

SI NANAY ay nasa bahay pag-uwi namin galing sa iskwela. Walang mga bakod at gate ang magkakapit-bahay. Kung meron, gumamela lang. Diyes sentimos lang ang baon — singko sa umaga, singko sa hapon.

Merong “free” ang mga stick ng ice drop, buko man o munggo. Mataas ang paggalang sa mga guro at ang tawag sa kanila ay maestro/a.

Di binibili ang tubig, pwedeng maki-inom sa di mo kakilala. Malaking bagay na ang pumunta sa ilog para mag-picnic, o kaya sa tumana.

Pwedeng iwan ang sasakyan at ibilin sa mga nasa tabing kalye — wala namang lock ang mga Willy’s jeep noon.

* * *

SIMPLE lang ang pangarap noon — makatapos, makapag-asawa, mapagtapos ang mga anak.
Bago magkaroon ng Internet, computer at cellphone. Noong wala pang mga drugs at malls. Bago pa nauso ang Counter Strike at mga Game Boy.

Meron kaming mga laruan na gawa lang namin — trak-trakan (Rosebowl ang katawan at Darigold na maliit ang mga gulong), “sketeng” (scooter) na bearing na maingay ang mga gulong at de-sinkong pako para sa preno. Patining na pinitpit na tansan lang na may dalawang butas sa gitna para suotan ng sinulid (pwede pang makipag-lagutan); sumpak, pilatok, boca-boca, borador, atbp.

Maraming usong laro — laste, gagamba, turumpo, tatsing ng lata. Pera namin ay kaha ng Philip Morris, Marlboro, Champion (kahon-kahon yon!)

* * *

NATATANDAAN mo ba ang pagtatakip mo ng mata pero nakasilip sa pagitan ng mga daliri pag nanonood ng nakakatakot sa “Mga Aninong Gumagalaw”?

Karera sa takbuhan hanggang maubos ang hininga; pagtawa hanggang sumakit ang tiyan. Meron pa bang himbabao, kulitis at pongapong? O kaya ang lukaok, susuwi at espada? O harang taga o tumbang preso kapag maliwanag ang buwan?

May dagta ang dulo ng tinting na hawak mo para makahuli ng tutubi, nandadakma ka ng palakang tetot, pero ingat ka sa palakang saging dahil sa kulugo.

Butas na ang sakong ng Spartan mong tsinelas, suot mo pa rin. Namumugalgal ang pundiya ng karsonsilyo mo kasi nakasalampak ka sa lupa.

Pag-akyat natin sa mga puno; pagkakabit ng kulambo, lundagan sa kama. Pagtikwas o pagtitimba sa poso; pingga ang pang-igib ng lalake at may dikin naman ang ulo ng babae.

* * *

SA MODERNONG buhay at sa lahat ng kasaganaan sa high technology, di ba minsan nangarap ka na rin... mas masaya noong araw!

Takot tayo ngayon sa buhay. Kasi maraming napapatay, nakikidnap, maraming addict at masasamang loob.

Noon takot lang tayo sa ating mga magulang at mga lolo at lola. (Pero ngayon, alam na natin na mahal pala nila tayo kaya’t ayaw tayong mapahamak o mapariwara… na una silang nasasaktan pag pinapalo nila tayo.)

Nginig na tayo pag lumabas na ang yantok-mindoro o buntot-page. Naglagay ka ba ng karton sa pwet para hindi masakit ang tsinelas o sinturon?

Nakaranas ka rin ba ng pamimili ng bato sa bigas, tinda-tindahan na puro dahon naman, bahay-bahayan na puro kahon? Naglako ka ba ng ice candy o pandesal noong araw?
“Susmaryosep” ang nadidinig mo pag nagpapaligo ng bata, “Estigo santo” kapag nagmamano.

* * *

GRABE na ang kaso pag napatawag ka sa Principal’s Office. At malaking kahihiyan kapag bagsak ka sa exams.

Unahan tayong sumagot sa multiplication table na kabisado natin, kasi wala namang calculator.

Pag recess, mamimili ka sa garapon ng tinapay-alembong, taeng-kabayo o biscocho. Pwede ring ang sukli ay kending Vicks (meron pang libreng singsing) o kaya nougat o caramel. Kung gusto mo naman, pakumbo o kaya kariba, mas masaya kung inuyat.
Masarap ang kamatis na piniga sa kamay para sa sawsawan; ang palutong pag isawsaw sa sukang may siling labuyo; ang duhat kapag inalog sa asin; ang isa-isang isubo ang daliri kasi puno na ng kanin; halo-halo na yelo, asukal at gatas lang ang sahog.
Tuwang-tuwa kami pag tinalo ang tinale ni Itay kasi may tinola!

Purico ang mantika, at mauling na ang mukha at ubos na ang hininga mo sa ihip kasi mahirap magparikit ng apoy.

* * *

SAKANG ang lakad mo at nakasaya ka kasi bagong tuli ka. O naghahanap ka ng chalk kasi tinagusan ang palda mo sa eskwelahan. Lipstick mo ay papel de hapon.

May program at flag-raising kapag Lunes sa paaralan. May pakiling kang dala kung Biyernes kasi magi-isis ka ng desk.

Presidente ng klase ay ang pinakamagaling, hindi ang pinakamayaman.
Yung crush mo — ano na kayang nangyari sa kanya?

Naglululon ka ng banig pagkagising; matigas sa almirol ang mga punda at kumot; madumi ang manggas ng damit mo kasi doon ka nagpapahid ng sipon… pwede rin sa laylayan.

Ang kanta: Penpen de serapen, de kutsilyo, de almasen, how how da carabao batuten....

* * *

MASAYA na tayo basta sama-sama kahit hati-hati sa kokonti. May oras tayo sa isa’t-isa.

Naaasar ka kapag marami kang sunog sa sungka, kapag buro ka sa pitik-bulag o matagal ka ng taya sa holen.

Yung matatandang kapatid ang pinaka-ayaw natin, pero sila ang tinatawag natin pag napapa-trouble tayo.

Di natutulog si Inay, nagbabantay pag may trangkaso tayo. Meron tayong Skyflakes at Royal sa tabi at pahihigupin ng mainit na Royco.

Di ba masaya? Wala nang sasaya at gaganda pa sa panahong yon. Masaya noon at masaya pa rin tayo ngayon habang ina-alaala iyong mga araw na may kapayapaan pa.

Dark or Overexposed Photos

1. Open the photo in Photoshop.

2. Try the “Autolevels” command first.

3. Made a mistake? Use the “undo” command.

4. You can stop here, but if you’d like to enhance the photo further, use the “Layers” palette. Can’t find it? Left click on “Window” ad select “Layers.”

5. Drag the background to the new layer button on the layer palette to duplicate it.

6. Change the blend mode for the duplicate layer to Screen.

7. If the results are too light, lower the opacity of the layer.

8. If the photo is still too dark, drag the copy to the new layer button to duplicate it again. Adjust opacity as needed.

9. Save.

Red Eye

1. Look for “Toolbox” and click on the “Zoom Tool.” The arrow icon turns into a magnifying glass with a plus sign in the center.

2. Maneuver the mouse to the red eye on your photo, and click. The screen zooms in, making the eye larger and easier to fix.

3. Go back to the Toolbox and right click on the Spot Healing Brush Tool. Left click the Red Eye tool. The arrow of your mouse changes into a crosshair (+).

4. Now back to your photo. Click and drag the mouse to select the red eye.

5. Release the mouse key. The red eye is adjusted.

6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until all the red eye is removed.

7. Save.

Too Many Shadows on the Subject

1. This is a typical problem of photos taken in the summer: the ocean (or other landscape) looks bright, but the person standing in front is cloaked in shadows.

2. Click on Photoshop’s “Shadow/Highlight” tool.

3. Left click “image” and move mouse pointer to “Adjustments.”

4. Left click “shadow/highlight.” Drag the Shadows slider to the right to reveal the detail hidden in the shadows.

5. Save.

Washed Out or Overexposed

1. Open the photo in Photoshop.

2. Left click on “Image” to show the drop down menu.

3. Move mouse pointer to “Adjustments.” Left click the “Autolevels” command.

4. If you think you’ve overdone it, click “Edit” and select the “Undo” command.

5. You can stop here if you’re happy with the results, but if you want an extra boost, go to the “Layer” palette. (Can’t find it? Left click on “Window” and select “Layers.”)

6. Drag the background to the new layer button on the layer palette to duplicate it.

7. Change the blend mode for the duplicate layer to “Soft Light.”

8. If the results are too dark, lower the layer’s opacity.

9. If the photo is still too light, drag the copy to the new layer button to duplicate it again. Adjust opacity as needed.

10. Save.

Cropping Photos

1. Cropping a busy or cluttered background changes the focus of an image. This helps you to zero in on the subject.

2. From the Toolbox, select the “Crop” Tool.

3. If you already know how large you want your photo prints to be, select the cropping size: 4x6 inches for 4R and 5x7 inches for 5R. You can also experiment with different values for height and width.

4. Set the cropping resolution to 300 pixels/inch.

5. Position the mouse over the area of the photo you wish to crop. Click, hold and draw a quick selection around the image. When you release the mouse button the non-selected area will gray out.

6. Happy with the selected area? Press “Enter” or right-click and select “Crop”.

7. Made a mistake? Press “ESC” or right-click and select “Cancel” and repeat step 5.

8. Always save under a different file name.

Dr. Jose P. Rizal's Birthday

It's holiday today here in our place since I live and work in our national hero's hometown. I was supposed to report for work but a lot of things happened today. First, JM woke-up 2am and did not sleep until 3:30am which means I also need to stay awake until he sleeps again. He poops after he finish his milk but after an hour he vomits most of the milk he drink. When I was about to sleep na rin my ate who takes care of JM send me a text message saying the she was in Lucena Doctor's Hospital for he's eldest brother. Kuya Marciano was confined and was declared comatose, he's bp was 220/180 and it was seen in the ctscan na may ugat na pumutok sa kaliwang part ng utak nya =(. So I thought ate glo will not be able to come back na, and texted my boss that I will not be able to report for work na. But ate came back before 8am but I was already late for the service na. I just took the opportunity to settle everyhting na lang. While I was out, ate glo texted me that she was asked to go back to Lucena and she cried when I came back, she wanted to know the status of kuya so I called my ate eve to check. She told me that it's only the machine who keeps our kuya from breathing and they decided to discharged him na lang to save on cost.

Grabe, masyadong maraming nangyari sa araw na to. While the other people are enjoying the parade in celebration for Rizal's birthday, ate's family naman is facing a major problem.

Update on JM's diaper rash

Last night we tried to use disposable diaper on JM to make sure that he sleeps un-disturbed. But this morning we saw that he's balls becomes reddesh in color which is almost dry last night. Tonight we will try not to use disposable diaper until the diaper rash healed. I just hope na hindi kami mapuyat pareho ni baby.

Diaper Rash

My Ate who’s in-charge of taking care of JM texted me and asked if I noticed something on my son’s balls when I changed his diaper this morning she noticed daw kasi that my son balls is somehow red in color. We’re using cloth diaper in the morning kasi when he woke up which is normally around 5:30-6:30am and change it to disposal diaper after he took a bath so he can sleep without worrying of getting wet.

She think it’s a diaper rash since there’s no sign of “pantal” in case nakagat ng langgam. She also noticed na parang may gasgas yung balls ni JM.

Parang gusto ko na tuloy agad umuwi at dalhin sa pedia si JM para malaman kung ano talaga ang problem. But the problem is I don’t have a driver so I can’t bring JM to his pedia, so I will visit his pedia na lang to seek an advise and to ask for an ointment for the rashes.

Ganon pala yung feeling na parang biglang nawawala ka sa focus sa work when you learned that your child has a problem. Which in my case mas kami ng ate ko ang namomoroblema, according to my ate wala naman daw sign of irritation sa part ni JM, parang kami lang 2 ang na iirita sa rashes nya. Ha ha ha

Sana bumilis na agad ang takbo ng oras para makauwi na ako.

I have a lot to blog about but can't find time to write.

Masyado yata akong nawiwili sa pag aalaga kay JM kaya kahit tulog sya hindi ko pa rin maisingit ang pag blog.

I hope na makabawi na ako soon....
