Jaysee goes to Visayas Blogging Summit 2010

Image
Gathering blogging enthusiasts from all over Visayas, the Visayas Blogging Summit (VBS 2010) became the perfect venue to learn more about this whole new industry.


So I had this brouhaha with CebuPacific but then I made a decision to fly all the way to Ilo-ilo to not only attend VBS 2010 but as well as the Philippine Blog Awards and the Ilo-ilo Heritage Tour for a three day two night stay.



Upon arrival at the Ilo-ilo International Airport, I immediately rode a shuttle to SM City Ilo-ilo to attend the summit. I got my summit kit and some other freebies upon registration which was kinda cool. The event staff was very much helpful with the whole process as I pretty much have my hands full. After scanning the theater, I spotted my fellow members from the Cebu Bloggers Society Inc.


The VBS 2010 covered topics from using it as a medium to promote advocacy, to ways of earning through blogging, the VBS 2010 has got to be one of the biggest blogging event I’ve attended to in terms of education…

Paint Roofs White and Fight Climate Change

Image
Did you ever wonder why wearing dark clothes are advisable to be worn on cold days?Dark colors absorb light better.
Dark colors radiate heat better. That is why white roofing is the in thing when you want a cooler home. But this is nothing new as homes in Greece follow this method of insulation for more than four thousand years now. White roofing actually reflects 80% of the sunlight while existing roofs in dark red or dark brown reflect only 10% to 20% on the other hand.* Less absorbed light radiation reduces heat significantly.What does this mean to you?Improves comfort and lowers demand for cooling Increases life cycle of roof Reduces urban heat This is advocated by Dr. Glen Martin Green and graduate student Mehdi Asadi.

What you may not know about your PC

Notes from the Intel Blogger Workshop.
photo by Tony MaroUNDERSTANDING THE BASICSDon’t compare computers based on clock speeds unless they use processors from the same family such as Core, Celeron, Pentium and Core 2 Duo and have the same number of processing cores. Processors of different brands should not be compared using clock speed as their designs vary radically. 2GB of RAM is ideal for everyday users. Memory can be easily upgraded at a later point. If you need more capacity at a later stage, a cost effective DIY solution is to purchase an external USB 2.0 hard drive. Consider using Solid State Drives (SSD) because it has the capacity of 160GB and unlike traditional hard drives, there is no moving parts. This means quiet, more rugged, energy-efficient and faster system responsiveness. Only the computers with the most powerful processors can make full use of discrete graphics. THE HOURGLASS SYNDROMEWhat is it?Intel describes it as “the stress and frustration that we feel when we …

What you can do to improve your life! Part 4/4

All of us have major major problems and most of it involves money and people. It takes skills and perseverance to excel in what you do. There was so much to take in from Mr. Anthony Pangilinan when I was invited to cover the Plantersbank SME Speaker Series the other day.




The fifth and final struggle that SMEs face is
ACCOUNTING FOR OUR DECISIONS AND ACTIONS
All of us have the ability to take on responsibility.

Mr. Pangilinan assures, “I will not doubt that you will succeed.”

He also advises:
Don’t ask what is important: the left or the right wing?

Legacy is about what you’ll leave behind. Grand exit if you must say. Maybe we should also thought of a grand entrance just as well.




ACRONYMS Mr. Pangilinan also introduced to us to two new acronyms in life:


This means if you want
everybody to be ethical,
you must be enthusiastic.




Lead by example, practice what you preach, and live life.

We have all eternity to celebrate our victories,we only have sundown to win them all.
He als…

STUGGLE # 1 was about assessing what we should stand for. Then…
STRUGGLE # 2: Align with your organization and community. Now…
STRUGGLE #3 Accept the fact even now we greatly influence those around us! Even when doing nothing you are affecting people around you. “Just try to sneeze,” Mr. Pangilinan dares us.

It all comes down to not just affecting people around you,
you should also bring them in the right direction.


His friend, an HR of one of the biggest global banks, shared a story to him. After playing golf, the man heard his son say, “This is the first time you spent time with me alone.” It nearly broke his heart.

Another friend, Anthony says, belongs to one of the richest family in the country. This friend confides to him about how his marriage is failing.

The point of all the anecdotes above is
how we manage our life
affects those around us,

especially those we care so much about.

STUGGLE # 1 was about assessing what we should stand for.

Now…
STRUGGLE # 2 Align with your organization and community His uncle, Mr. Manny Pangilinan, CEO of PLDT told about his roots with the company. Mr. Manny was given a commission by the company on his second day on the job. He was able to close a very huge deal. He told his staff to take all the money on his desk and bring it back to the treasury. He claims it should belong with the company; an affable gesture indeed.

Mr. Manny was also given 60 cars for personal, family and friend’s use. He returned all but one back and says he doesn’t need the others.

Now, PLDT stands as one of the companies who underwent a great corporate transformation. From a losing one to the most profitable business there is.

“Leadership defines corporate culture,” adds Anthony.
He also says that there are times when all it takes for you to learn more is to listen to your daughter. One of the most difficult things to hear is when Ella says, “But d…

All of us have major problems and a large chunk of it involves money and people. It takes skills and perseverance to excel in what you do. I learned a lot from Mr. Anthony Pangilinan when I was invited to cover the Plantersbank SME Speaker Series.
AS A SPEAKER Mr. Pangilinan can hold on to your interest for the rest of the afternoon. The coursework itself was well-defined and delivered exceptionally. All the information he gave was practical and we’re breaking it down later. He presented it in a manner that was effective enough to put his message across. He used learning devices like personal anecdotes, bullets, surveys, jokes, videos and basically shared everything else he knows that his sincerity to educate just emanates through.
THEME The theme was actually universal in all sense. His talk was about the five struggles businesses face and how you can solve it can be very much applied to personal life situations. Everyone can relate to this since we are in the modern society where…

Why You Should Be Careful With Using the Word “Busy”?

Satan called a worldwide convention of demons. In his opening address he said:
“We can’t keep Christians from turning against God but we can distract them from God. Let them go to church, but let us steal their time so they don’t have time to develop a relationship with Jesus Christ… …This is what I want you to do,” said the devil: “Distract them from maintaining that vital connection with Jesus throughout their day!”
“How shall we do this?” his demons asked.
“Keep them busy in the non-essentials of life and invent innumerable schemes to occupy their minds,” he answered.
Over-stimulate their minds so that they cannot hear the still, small voice of God. Entice them to play the radio or iPod whenever they drive, to keep the TV, DVD, CDs and their PCs going constantly in their home. This will jam their minds and break that union with Christ. Pound their minds with the news 24 hours a day. Flood their mailboxes with junk mail, mail order catalogs, and every kind of newsletter and promotio…

Smith, Robinson, and Jones brain teaser

For our English class, our teacher made us answer this test for 30 minutes and man did it take a toll on all of our educationally stagnant AMA brains. Here’s the problem:On a train, Smith, Robinson, and Jones are the fireman, brakeman, and the engineer, but NOT respectively. Also aboard the train are three businessmen who have the same names: a Mr. Smith, a Mr. Robinson, and a Mr. Jones. Using the clues below, can you determine the identity of the Engineer? 1. Mr. Robinson lives in Detroit.
2. The brakeman lives exactly halfway between Chicago and Detroit
3. Mr. Jones earns exactly $20,000 per year.
4. The brakeman's nearest neighbor, one of the passengers, earns exactly three times as much as the brakeman.
5. Smith beats the fireman in billiards.
6. The passenger whose name is the same as the brakeman's lives in Chicago. Thankfully, after thorough discussion with my classmates and a good friend’s good judgement (Thanks Nido) I was able to answer that it was Smith. Bu…
