Samsung Makes BIG BANG ALIVE


Samsung Makes BIG BANG ALIVE
 
Earth's richest materials is the inspiration to Samsung Galaxy III and fits the 빅뱅 BIG BANG band members personality.
 
Big Bang is a South Korean male band under the management of YG Entertainment. Formed in 2006, Big Bang has grown to become one of the most successful Asian acts in the world.
The group consists of the following:

  • Tae Yang  
  • Dae Sung 
  • G-Dragon 
  • Seungri
  • T.O.P


Sapphire Black  

The black version suggests of the stones used by the ancient people of India and Persia for protection, with the belief they strengthened one's willpower. 
 
Tae Yang has so much willpower so this galaxy III color fits Tae Yang very well.

Titanium gray

Gray, is a symbol for "intelligence, insight, and curiosity," and the new color option brings a "futuristic element" to the handset.
 

I think the most talented among the Big Bang Members is G-Dragon so Gray fits him well.



Garnet Red

The red model is the color of garnet, which "was worn as an amulet by the ancient Egyptians who believed the stone contained protective powers."
 
Dae Sung's personality seems to be so protected. So, the Red Galaxy III fits him so well.

Amber Brown  

The brown model was inspired by amber, an organic gemstone sometimes containing fossils that "was believed to sustain the secrets of the earth inside it.

For me Seungri is very secretive and very down to earth. So the Samsung Galaxy III color that fits him is the earth color brown. He doesn't have the star complex.
 
Pink is the color of passion. Pink Evokes Innocence.Pink is the color of universal love. Pink is a quiet color. Lovers of beauty favor pink. A pink carnation means "I will never forget you". Pink looks cool in men. Women loves guys in Pink.


TOP likes the color pink and his room is pink too!  The Samsung Galaxy III color that  fits TOP is the color Pink because he is dynamic and full of optimism. It fits TOP to a T!




Pebble Blue and marble white remains classic.

VIDEO: My Story, Struggling, Bullying, Suicide and Self harm


VIDEO: My Story, Struggling, Bullying, Suicide and Self harm

 “No one deserves to be bullied. No one earns it. No one asks for it. It is not a rite of passage."

“Bullying has to stop.”


I feel there is a need to expose Cyberbullies! It is really sad to know, that some people can be so mean.


I hope God touches your heart so you bullies will stop saying bad things about other people. And for the witness out there please don't be a silent witness. Emphatize with the one being talked about. If you know that there was no truth to what they were saying make a stand and defend the person being talked about.

Around supper time last Wednesday, October 10, 2012, Amanda took her own life. The picture below is Amanda Todd, 15 year-old.
Last Wednesday night this beautiful girl committed suicide. I don’t know her. It is very sad to know that her cry for help was not address when she was still alive. After her cry for help when she posted her video on you tube last September 7, 2012 she still got bullied. Some bullies are really sick, and it’s very wrong. No matter how much you tell people to stop bullying, the majority of them won’t...until it’s too late .
To support Amanda, lots of people are going to be wearing hot pink on October 15, 2012.
R.I.P. Amanda you’re in a better place now.  I hope a full investigation will be launch to look into the circumstances that led to this ridiculous bullying.


Here is her story from Vancouver Sun:

A teenager posted a heartbreaking video on YouTube chronicling years of bullying in school and online, cutting and humiliation up until she died this week.


Amanda Todd, 15, posted the video called "My story: Struggling, bullying, suicide, self harm" on Sept. 7 and was found dead in her home town of Port Coquitlam, British Columbia, just this week.


Amanda was the victim of unrelenting blackmail. And the cyberspace stalker was aided by people in Amanda’s real-world life — kids who would share the photos on their cellphones, kids who would gang up to hurl first verbal abuse and then fists at her.


"Everything she said in the video happened over the past two years," said Carol (Amanda's Mother). "It was horrendous. I think about it now and I think, Oh my God. How did she survive this long with the pain?"


The end, when it came, was a shock. Despite Amanda's earlier suicide attempts, Carol said in recent days and weeks she was getting much better. She spent time in hospital in September, getting treatment and counselling. Her life was starting to return to normal, which it hadn't been since grade 8. "She felt like a normal teenager, she was so proud of herself," said Carol. "She went out with friends, she went to the mall, she said to me, Mom, this is the first time that I feel normal again. I have had the best day ever."


Carol doesn't know what caused her daughter’s setback, but Amanda may have given Carol an answer in a private video. "She left me a video message on her phone. I'm not ready to look at it yet," said Carol. "The coroner has told me it will provide closure for me but I can’t look at it yet."


Carol doesn't know what happened, but sometime earlier this week — before Amanda killed herself late Wednesday afternoon — something happened to shatter that fragile recovery. 


Here is the original video posted by the late Amanda Todd:

I'm struggling to stay in this world, because everything just touches me so deeply. I'm not doing this for attention. I'm doing this to be an inspiration and to show that I can be strong. I did things to myself to make pain go away, because I'd rather hurt myself then someone else. Haters are haters but please don't hate, although im sure I'll get them. I hope I can show you guys that everyone has a story, and everyones future will be bright one day, you just gotta pull through. I'm still here aren't I ?


-AmandaTodd



To all bullies out there, rumormongers, sawsawero, sawsawera, If you want change then be the change that you want. 

Don't bully other people. 

Don't jump into conclusion. 

Don't blog other people as a blind item. Especially if you have not verified your facts! If you have a problem with them tell them directly and resolve the problem. Spreading false rumors won't solve the problem. Plus you are violating one of the ten commandments of GOD- Thou shall not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

Be good. Spread happiness not sadness.


DARK NIGHT COMIC CREATOR'S GF SUED BY DINDI GALLARDO


DARK NIGHT COMIC CREATOR'S GF SUED BY DINDI GALLARDO
 

This is dark — even for The Dark Knight. A woman who worked for legendary comic-book writer Frank Miller says she was put through hell by the "Batman" scribe's gal pal.

 
That’s the subhead of a news item that came out in New York Post. The woman being referred to in the story is Joanna Gallardo-Mills, who happened to be a 1993 Bb. Pilipinas-Universe. She used to go by the screen name Dindi Gallardo. Dindi’s real married name is Joanna Gallardo-Mills. Dindi Gallardo filed a case against the Dark Knight creator and his girlfriend “for hostile work environment.” 

Here is the full story as posted by the New York Post:

In a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit, Joanna Gallardo-Mills, 41, says Miller's the "Sin City" creator's girlfriend, Kimberly Cox, smeared her work area with feces, destroyed her printer with a hammer, threw phones at her, and even left a used feminine hygiene pad by her desk. "Nobody should have to work under those conditions," said her lawyer, high-powered employment attorney Matthew Blit.

Gallardo-Mills claims she was canned for complaining about how Cox was treating her. The suit says Gallardo-Mills went to work for Miller — whose 1986 Batman comic series "The Dark Knight Returns" is considered revolutionary — as an executive coordinator in November 2008.


The Philippines native said it wasn't long before there were problems with Cox, Miller's much-younger actress girlfriend. Cox soon made it clear she had issues with Gallardo-Mills, yelling things like, "I can't understand your funky accent. Speak f--king English," the suit says.


The suit notes Gallardo-Mills "has lived in the United States for over 20 years, is fully fluent in English, and only spoke English in her professional capacity" with Miller. Cox yesterday said she was 'shocked' by the suit. "We didn't know this was going forward because she was offered a very heavy settlement and declined," she said.




Gallardo-Mills' work situation went in the toilet In July 2010, when Cox allegedly threw a phone and chair at Gallardo-Mills — and "smeared human feces" on a countertop in her work area in the Hell's Kitchen living/work space that Miller and Cox shared, the suit says.


A year later, Cox went on another rampage, the suit says, scattering all of Gallardo-Mills’ files across the floor and destroying her printer "with a hammer," the suit says. Then, Cox left her filthy underwear and "used menstrual pad" in her work space, the suit says.


After Gallardo-Mills complained, Miller eventually agreed to let her work out of her home to keep her away from Cox. She's seeking unspecified money damages from Miller and Cox for discrimination and "mental anguish."


A representative for Miller did not return a call for comment. 


Here are some excerpts from the interview written by Cristina Pastor of The FilAm last May 2012 :

Q. Your boss didn’t know you were an actress?

A. I don’t talk about that. If they know you’re an actress chances are they’re not going to hire you because they’d think you just want to be in this industry. Double life talaga. Well, now he knows.

Q. Ten years in New York. What’s that like?

A. I love New York. I love my job. I can’t get into major details. My boss—he’s pretty big. I’m like his right-hand person. I work with his team of lawyers, agents, accountants. I’ve been with him 3.5 years.

Q. How did you land this current position with this artist?

A. I quit Buchwald to get another job with a bigger production company. But it didn’t happen. I was really upset. Then boom, this job fell on my lap. I didn’t even know who (my future boss) was. We clicked so well. I got promoted two times. We’re about to film a big, big film with a full cast.

Q. Have you experienced being racially discriminated in New York?

A. Oh yes. In one of the companies I worked for, my boss wanted me to work on Thanksgiving and this person said, why should you get a holiday? You don’t celebrate Thanksgiving in the Philippines.

Best Outdoor Destinations for Honeymooners


Best Outdoor Destinations for Honeymooners
Your big day is just around the corner and now it is time to plan your honeymoon, but the two of you are not your average couple. The two of you consider traveling around the globe, camping and backpacking much more romantic than spending thousands to stay in a "luxury resort."  For outdoor folks like yourself, here are some great outdoor honeymoon destinations.


Las Vegas
We know what you are thinking.  Las Vegas does not seem like a destination for outdoor people.  While it is true that Vegas is known more for poker games and blackjack than outdoor activities, the city is located close to numerous outdoor options. 
The Grand Canyon is just a short trip from Las Vegas and as one of the natural wonders of the world offer a great opportunity for outdoor enthusiasts.  Just 35 miles from Vegas is Mt. Charleston, a natural habitat nestled right on the outskirts of the Vegas desert.  Hiking, camping, horseback riding, and skiing are all available on Mt. Charleston.  Be sure to get all your supplies before you head up as the Mountain does not have any gas stations or grocery stories once you head up.


Colorado
Outdoor enthusiasts looking for a prime spot in the United States to honeymoon at should consider the state of Colorado.  Couples are surrounded by views of both the Rockies and the San Juan Mountains and the natural beauty makes it one of the most scenic states in the US.


Whether you choose to honeymoon in Aspen, Crested Butte, Breckenridge, or Vail, you will find plenty of things to do outdoors such as hiking, biking, rafting, horseback riding, and some of the best skiing destinations in the world.


Jamaica


The natural beauty of Jamaica draws newlyweds from around the world to this island paradise.  Jamaica's scenic beaches are obviously a huge draw, but there are many water activities that couples can try together such as bamboo rafting trips, exploring the many caves of Jamaica, snorkeling, and more.


Yosemite
If a camping honeymoon is more to your liking, consider Yosemite National Park in California. With several campgrounds open year round and even at night, you can find something here for whenever you want to honeymoon.  Amazing waterfalls, beautiful meadows, majestic mountains, forests of giant sequoia trees, as well as the Merced River are all highlights of this trip.  Be sure to reserve your spot well in advance as this is a very popular destination for tourists.

GLOBE: All-unlimited Roaming For Postpaid Subscribers


GLOBE: All-unlimited Roaming For Postpaid Subscribers

 
My friend related to me how she was billed P74,000 by a telecom company when she went abroad early this year. That's a huge amount, even if you are rich it is not practical to pay that much especially if you have not really use that service right? 

This bill shock problem that we all encounter is really a pain in the ^*%. I am glad that I was invited to a press conference yesterday by Telecommunications giant Globe Telecom where they unveiled one of the world’s first-ever all-unlimited roaming service covering calls, texts and mobile Internet, protecting its roaming subscribers from bill shock, or the high surge of charges on a postpaid bill.

The new product launched by Globe was dubbed All-Unli Roam. This product is a perfect solution to Filipino jet setter/ travel addicts/ Byahera like my friend.


So, without further ado, here is the mechanics:

From Oct. 11 to Nov. 12, 2012, Globe postpaid subscribers visiting Thailand can register to any of the roaming combos available. 

Postpaid subscribers on roaming can subscribe to any of these unlimited roaming combo services to enjoy worry-free mobile connection:
  • $10 for the one-day variant for the Unlimited roaming mobile Internet is available.
  • $27 for the three-day variant. 
  • $30 for the one-day variant for the unlimited roaming calls and mobile Internet combo.
  • $90 for the three-day variant. 
  • $40 for the one-day variant for the unlimited roaming calls, texts, and mobile Internet combo
  • $120 for the three-day variant for the unlimited roaming calls, texts, and mobile Internet combo.
The all-unlimited roaming services will cover Globe postpaid subscribers on roaming in Thailand, covering all roaming partners in the country such as:
  • Advanced Info Service Public (AIS)
  • Total Access Communication (DTAC) 
  • True Move Co. Ltd. 
This will benefit subscribers as they don’t have to manually latch on to a specific partner-operator because the promo covers all local operators in Thailand.

According to Globe's International Business Group Head, Ms. Rizza Maniego-Eala, Globe already has the world widest roaming coverage with partnerships spanning across 200 countries and with more than 600 mobile operators across the globe. 

She further explain that they also have the widest range of roaming offers and promos, with their unlimited roaming Internet promo available in 19 countries, and their PowerRoam offer which is fully consumable with up to 75 percent discount on roaming rates available in 16 destinations.
“We always strive harder to provide our subscribers, no matter where they are, with relevant and value-for-money offers that give them seamless and hassle-free connectivity across the world, allowing them to stay connected with people who matter most to them. Globe All-Unli Roam testifies to this commitment. With this pilot promo, Globe is gearing up to offer more innovative solutions covering more destinations in the future, as we continue to proactively address the needs of our traveler segment,” quips Rizza Maniego-Eala, head for International Business Group at Globe.

Thank you so much to Globe and Ms. Rizza for this innovative product. It was nice meeting you Madam.
