Thoughts about ISIS

I heard the news about ISIS few days ago. I didn’t mind it but it has been in the news everyday and got alarmed already. ISIS or Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant did brutal doings like killing of innocent civilian especially in Iraq and Syria. They are part of the terrorist and said to be the richest in all terrorist.  ISIS funds itself through oil and an extortion racket.

There’s a rumor that they already entered our country and recruiting Filipino to join their group. Usually they recruit out of school youth and mentioned places particularly in Mindanao. There are photos of young Filipinos posing in black flag, this black flag symbolizes ISIS. Although the genuinely of the photos are still questionable and didn’t confirm the legitimacy of the photos or might be these people are just inspired by ISIS.

There’s also news saying this ISIS plans to kill Pope Francis during his visit in the Philippines next year. This is very alarming and I hope our country is ready in this kind of situation. I heard the Presidential Security Group (PSG) would lead the security of Pope Francis. Well, whether it’s true or not that this group is already here in our country, I hope our government is ready so no innocent citizens would be suffered. It’s in my prayer that this ISIS group won’t operate here in the Philippines and all over the world. It would be alarming and frightening so we should be ready and alert at all times.

Internet Connection is Back

Thanks God the internet connection is back. Four days ago I can’t connect in our WIFI connection. I thought it’s because of the heavy rains happened last week. The other day I called PLDT hotline and talked to the operator. I was happy because I didn’t wait long to talk to the operator. After giving the details of our WIFI he helped me with some possible ways but none of them help. He told me to open the WIFI the whole night and they will check it in the server. So I let the modem open and checked immediately in the morning. Still the connection was failed. In the afternoon I called them again and the operator told me that the issue regarding my WIFI connection was already forward to the office of PLDT in our place. She said that anytime soon the technician will come to check our connection. No technician came yesterday. Though no technician came, I opened the net again this morning and surprisingly I was connected already. Thanks a lot because my source of income based online and it’s a waste of time and money renting computer. And besides I think its not safe to go online outside because of the password you are entering. They might copy the password so as much as possible I want to do my online tasks at home. Oh well, happy that the connection is back and hope it won’t happen again.

Tips for Your Long Distance Move

When you move within the city in which you live, it’s typically a very easy process. However, if you decide to move farther – across the country, for example, or to another country entirely – you are going to face a unique set of challenges. When considering a demenagement longue distance, use these tips to make life easier. 

First, cut back as much as possible on what you own. Identify what you really do not need – clothes that you have not worn in months, for example. Get rid of these items. You may also be wise to get rid of some large items and buy them again when you arrive. The biggest thing that makes the move easier is simply having less to move. 

Next, plan ahead and have a good schedule that allows for flexibility. For instance, if you have work on the first Monday of a month, try to move on the prior Monday. This gives you a week to move, unpack, and get settled. If you try to do it all the day before you are supposed to start work, it can be way more stressful. 

Finally, for long distance moving to New York, take a moment to get to know your new place before you arrive. Do you need to go up multiple flights of stairs? Is there going to be street parking or not? The more you know, the easier it is to plan out your day and to know what to ask the moving company.

What Does It Mean To Be Sex Positive?

As of late, there has been a considerable amount of talk about being “sex positive” in groups of sexual enthusiasts and those who work in the industry as sex educators and therapists. During a time where the open discussion about sex is becoming less taboo, many are becoming more curious about what being sex positive really means and how one can fit into the definition. So what exactly does it mean to be sex positive in today’s society? There are three parts to this answer:

Healthy Expression
Having a healthy expression of sexual energy and erotic desires is one of the base pillars of being sex positive. A healthy expression is defined, as anything that doesn’t harm one’s self or another. There are a variety of ways that a person can express his or her sexual energy. Some have extreme fetishes that may appear abnormal to some, but to that person it is a normal and healthy form of sexual expression. Some may like to have safe sex with multiple partners at a time, while others may enjoy having solo sex while others watch on in enjoyment. Having a healthy expression of sexual energy will be defined differently by each person and is the first step towards being sex positive.

Being Non-Judgmental
Being non-judgmental of another’s form of sexual expression is the second pillar of sex positivity. Each person will have a different opinion of what is healthy for him or her and being a sex positive person means to accept that person’s expression no matter how diverse it may be from one’s personal execution.

Open to Sexual Self-Exploration
Understanding of one’s sexual makeup and skill is rooted in his or her ability to explore self independently. Having sex solo through self-pleasuring, the use of sex toys, meditation and other activities similar are all ways a person can come in touch with their sex positive selves and enjoy a fulfilled sex life. Self-exploration grants a person the understanding he or she needs to become aware of how sexual energy feels and how it affects the body. Some men may decide to use sex toys during their self-exploration, and a sex positive person would look at this form of expression as healthy. Sexual exploration with self is vital for a complete sex life.

Being sex positive can be work in itself because it takes the breaking down of a conditioned mindset that views sexual expression as one way and one way only. One must learn as much as possible about how varied sexual experiences can be in order to have a mind that is fully sex positive, and by taking the learning process one step at a time a person can become sex positive faster than he or she thinks. Being sex positive isn’t just about being free in one’s sexuality; it’s also about embracing and accepting others as they are and developing healthy relationships that can change the world.
