Do you know if you are being lied to?

Man if we could only tell if we are being lied to. Can you imagine how much safer all of our lives would be.

I was watching a television show the other day called "Lie To Me". Since I am not reviewing the show itself and only discussing the subject matter, I will not be going into who stars in the show and its specific story lines. That being said, the show is basically about a group of "investigators" (if you will) that specialize in interpreting facial expressions and body language to solve crimes. Very intriguing stuff.

In my profession I use the body language of people that I am observing to identify potential threats. People that are planning on taking some kind of action against you always have certain "tells" that give away in a physical manner what their minds are thinking. We all have these tells. When it comes to lying, courtship, professional relationships, even how we deal with our children, we can all be read like an open book for those that understand how to read it. People that have this ability have achieved it through training and life's experience itself. Police are prime examples of how training can give you this ability. Poker players as well. Ever ask yourself why it is the same faces that turn up at World Poker Championships year after year if poker is supposedly a game based on luck?

If this topic intrigues you there is a fantastic book that can give you a clear and easy to understand introduction into the world of "Non-Verbal Communication". It is called "Crime Signals". Crime Signals is written by David Givens PH.D. and published by St. Martin's Griffin. Dr. Griffin is the director of the Center for Nonverbal Studies. He is a former contractor for the Department of Defense and has given seminars on the subject to "countless" law enforcement agencies. This book is easy to read and understand. It covers everything from uncovering lies to discovering con-artists to recognizing sexual predators and pedophiles.

Awareness is one of our greatest tools. We all have the ability to watch everything around us on a daily basis, but how much of it do we actually see? I always talk about bettering ourselves so that we can better protect those that we hold near and dear to our hearts. This is one way to start today. I will be posting more about non-verbal communication in the coming weeks. If this interests you, please do not hesitate to let me know to help me decide just how much time to spend on it and how in-depth I will go.

As always, take care my friends and keep your heads up and your eyes open. ;o)

I want you all to meet Mr Chuckles M. McNuckles ;o)

I know what you are thinking, this creature has to be an Ewok. ;o)

In homage to all my friends that have sites dedicated to their pets and animals in general, I thought I would introduce you all to a very spoiled brat. My Shitzu. ;o)

Here is a fact that many of you may not know about this breed of dog, they think that they can fly. You have to be very careful to leave a shitzu on anything more than a foot high because no matter how high it is these dogs think that they can jump off and survive the fall. Chuck proved this the other day when he jumped off of my kids bunk bed. The most common injury to this breed of dog is a broken jaw and just for this very reason.

Pets can bring so much happiness to a home. The positivism that animals can bring to us all is invaluable. Unconditional love usually is. Pets are also a great responsibility. Study the kind of pet that you are thinking about getting before you actually purchase one. You want to be sure that you know what you are getting into. Some pets require more care than we are sometimes able to provide.

Why Manny Villar should be President...and Personal Notes to Noynoy, Erap, and Gibo

Let’s take a closer look at Senator Manny Villar. At age 60, he has three children and is still married to his first and only wife Congresswoman Cynthia A. Villar. His three children on their own have impressive credentials, two of which having graduated from Wharton, an Ivy League University in the United States, and one still studying at Ateneo de Manila University.

Senator Villar himself holds both a Masters Degree and a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the prestigious University of the Philippines at Diliman in Quezon City and also holds several Honoris Causa Doctorate Degrees such as; Doctor of Science, Doctor of Humanities, Doctor of Development Management, Doctor of Business Administration, Doctor of Entrepreneurial Management, and Doctor of Public Administration as awarded by virtually every major educational institution in the Philippines such as; ADU, BPSC, BSU, CSU, CLSU, FU, LSPC, PSU, NEUST, RMTU, RSC, TSU, WUP, and WVCST, and has received awards for being the Most Outstanding Alumnus in 1991 and the Most Distinguished Alumnus in 2004 by the University of the Philippines.

Entering into business, Manny was always bolstered by the idea that it was better to be a business owner than it was to be an employee. He first tried his hand at supplying seafood to restaurants. After all, he had learned quite a bit about the business after helping his mother hawk fish in Quiapo. Sales were great but unfortunately his customers were not paying their bills on time if at all so he had to close the doors to this business and go back to work as an employee. Not wanting to stay an employee for long Manny went back to those restaurant owners that owed him money; he made arrangements with them to be able to sell meals in their restaurants for the amounts that they owed him. He then sold these meals to who ever would buy them. The proceeds of these sales he used to start his next venture. Long story short Manny later started supplying building materials like gravel and sand to construction companies. Soon he was himself building houses. After years of work Manny turned his company into one of the biggest home builders not just in the Philippines but in the whole of Asia. You must remember that the bulk of the houses that Manny Villar builds are for people just like you and me, the regular folk who might never have had the chance to own their own home otherwise.

Manny Villar has had a prolific career as a Public Servant. He has served the Filipino People as the Congressman from Las Pinas and Muntinlupa in the 9th, 10th, and 11th congresses ultimately serving as the Speaker of the House during his 3rd and final term as a Congressman. During the 9th Congress Manny was the House of Representatives Representative to the IMF which demonstrated his colleagues respect for his ability and expertise with regards to all things economic in nature. He is after all a qualified CPA.

Not being satisfied with what he had accomplished for the Philippines as a Congressman he set his sights on the Senate. Running on a platform of accomplishment and vision, Manny was easily elected into a Senatorial position for the 12th congress and has remained there to this day through the 13th and now 14th congresses. Just like during his time as a Congressman, Manny Villar lived up to his well known slogan, “Sipag at Tiyaga” and was able to attain the position of Senate President Pro Tempore during the 12th congress before progressing to the position of Senate President for both the 13th and 14th congresses. He was also able to Vice-Chair both the committee on Foreign Relations and the committee on Agriculture and Food as well as Chair both the committee on Finance and the committee on Public Order during the 13th congress.

It can be argued that the performance and quality of a legislator can be judged by what he has actually been able to accomplish while holding the position. Presidential Candidate Manny Villar continued his stellar performance by displaying his awareness of what the Filipino’s needs are and acting on this knowledge by crafting legislation designed to improve the lives of those that he has sworn and dedicated his adult life to serve. After 18 years as a legislator Senator Manny Villar has authored an astounding 740 Senate bills 44 of which have become law and 880 house bills 14 of which have become law. Among those laws are RA 8289 New Magna Carta for Small and Medium Enterprise, RA 9178 Barangay Micro Businesses Enterprise Act, RA 9189 Overseas Absentee Voting Act, RA 9208 Anti-Trafficking of Persons Act, RA 9257 An Act Granting Additional Benefits and Privileges to Senior Citizens, RA 9262 Anti-Violence Against Women and Children, Retail Trade Liberization Act, New Central Bank Act, New Securities Code, and the New Banking Act. Senator Villar in both his personal and political life has also understandably won numerous awards but let us just focus on his concrete personal accomplishments, those kinds of things that are recorded in history and have benefited others. Ribbons, plaques, magazine covers, and trophies are largely a result of good public relations; and the servicing of various agendas.

The Holy Bible speaks of Feast and Famine. Scripture speaks of charity and kindness to your fellow man. All things considered, what would you value more, a man who gave you a fish to eat or a man that taught you how to fish? Let’s take a closer look at some of the other activities that Manny Villar has been keeping himself busy with through the years. There is the “Sipag at Tiyaga Kaalaman” program, “Sagip-Bukas” Drug Prevention Program, “Manpower on Wheels” program, OFW Helpline, Sagip Ilog, Community Mortgage Program, Depressed Area Electrification Program, Pagtatanim sa Kinabukasan program, and the Tulong Kalusugan sa Kapwa programs. Manny Villar has demonstrated that he truly cares for his fellow Filipino and has heeded the call from within his own heart and soul to take up the yoke of public service. He has followed a well developed road-map to the position he is asking us to entrust him with. Manny Villar has completed, in an exemplary manner, all tasks put before him and is only seeking to complete his life’s work as a public servant in the next logical position for a man that has done what this man has for this Nation. Wouldn’t you want this position to go to a person that truly wants it and has programmed his life to the attainment of it or to a man that has never aspired toward much of anything? If you were to send your child to a martial arts school to learn self defense what kind of teacher would you want for your child? Bruce Lee or Tigger? (You must forgive me for the martial art correlations. I am after all a martial artist)

Speaking of Bruce Lee, ask yourself why all the other candidates are attacking Senator Manny Villar. Listen to what they say then take note of who said it and when it was said. I think you will find that those that are the loudest have something to gain by their actions; they are frequently paid hacks or political or business rivals and their supporters. Take Enrile for example. He is very quick to attack Manny. What does he have to gain? Well for starters Enrile is a re-electionist Senator, he also happens to be an Erap crony. Let’s not forget that Erap is not only a rival presidential candidate but, if you remember, Manny was also instrumental in his ouster during his previous failed stint as president. No grudges there? Hmmmm. We must also look at how Senator Lacson attacked Manny with the unfounded C5 Double Insertion allegations. (At the time Lacson himself was a presidential candidate) Interesting how not long after he made these allegations against Senator Villar did Mar Roxas testify on behalf of Lacson during a hearing regarding the Dacer/Corbito murder investigation. (Here again, do not forget that at this point in time Mar Roxas was himself as presidential aspirant) For some reason I think that Lacson will suddenly come back to the Philippines if Noynoy and Mar were to by some miracle win on May 10. To Manny Villar’s credit he has said that he does not mind all the negative media that has surrounded his candidacy. He realizes that Black propaganda is the norm in Philippine Politics especially when seen through the eyes of a media machine that is largely beholding to a particular candidate for various quite obvious reasons. It is this bias that he laments, “Why do the media mention certain issues about other candidates then immediately discredit these issues as black propaganda but when it comes to me they present it as the truth or some kind of expose.” Why would big media do this? What would they have to gain? Let us not look at what they have to gain but what they have gained already. History will tell us that the Lopez’ media holdings that had been sequestered by Ferdinand Marcos had been returned to them by Cory Aquino during her stay in Malacanang. Interesting right? I still remember the Inquirer the morning after Ondoy hit the Philippines. The huge picture on the front page showed Noynoy and Mar Roxas smiling and flashing the Laban gang sign while campaigning in the south of the Philippines. This huge picture sat next to a small side bar story about 40 plus people being killed in the storm. (We later learned that so many more than 40 people died during that natural disaster.) Sad right?

Look at the kinds of things that are being mentioned with regards to Villar. There is the C5 road issue, the he is not really from a poor background issue, spending too much money on the campaign issue, among other nonsense trivial issues. (Funny that nobody accuses Villar of being incompetent or that he wasted the votes given to him to make him a Senator or Congressman or that he is a drunk or a womanizer) Ask anybody that actually uses the “useless” road if they do not value its existence. Ask most of these other candidates if they have ever truly experienced the life of a person that lives life hand to mouth everyday? Many of us would not be able to pay our rent next month if we missed a week of work this month much less had a close relative fall ill. All the serious candidates have spent near the 1billion peso mark and more at this point in the campaign, ask yourself who can actually afford it without owing to large special interest donors. Sometimes we do not appreciate the grandeur of things. We must remember that Manny Villar is a BILLIONAIRE. Let us assume that he makes 10% interest (to make the math easy) on 1,000,000,000.00 per year. That would be 100,000,000.00 per year or 8,333,333.33 a month. Don’t forget that his business interests are still pumping funds into the bank on a daily basis in addition to whatever interest his money earns. Let’s face it; Manny Villar does not need to become President to become wealthy or powerful. In fact, judging by his past performance, he has never rested on his laurels but has worked as hard at serving the Filipino people as he has in building his personal empire. There are after all certain people in the Senate that have personally authored pitifully few bills, let alone have actually had legislation enacted into law, in fact, NONE of the other so called “Presidentiables” has the legislative track record that Manny Villar has and at least three of them have never even been legislators. Sad to say that there are at least two presidential candidates that have almost criminally wasted the mandate afforded to them by the people that voted them into office. You can see for yourself HERE. Senator Villar truly believes that he can do for the Philippines what he has accomplished in his own life if given the position and the responsibility to do so. Manny Villar has never squandered a single vote entrusted to him by the voting community in any of his elected positions. It is unlikely that he will start now in this most crucial of times in Philippine history considering the position he is asking that you entrust him with. Many great men have aspired to awesome things but have been dragged back down into the mud with those that could not dream as big. It appears that the CRAB is alive and well even today in our country. For once let’s just eat the CRAB and lift Manny Villar to the presidency so that he can reach out and pull us one by one out of the mud into the sunlight where we too can dream big.

“Nothing ventured nothing gained”. Have you heard this before? Whether in politics, business, or just run of the mill life, if you never try anything you will never accomplish anything. I remember being told by a mentor of mine that a big bruise that I had just gotten on the outside of my thigh was a badge of distinction. You see I got the bruise attempting a kind of martial arts kick that I had never tried before. My mentor told me that the bruise showed that I actually did something and was trying to make myself better. Sometimes you have to take the good with the bad. In the end you come out ahead. I could eventually do that kick quite well. There are other kinds of bruises that I got growing up that did not end up as I would have liked but I benefited just the same. I have gotten my heart broken more than once by childhood crushes but I now have a great wife and wonderful children. Nobody attains what Manny Villar has without both getting bruised and causing a few bruises himself. In the end he has become what he is today. They say that there are three kinds of people in the world. Those that make things happen, the kind that watches things happen, and the kind that does not know what the hell just happened. Manny Villar is a man that does and will always make things happen. He has never been a watcher, and most certainly has never been the man who asked, “What the hell just happened”.

There are other candidates of course. Each with his own set of accomplishments. If you sat down and wrote down all those accomplishments and then placed them side by side on a sheet of paper, (just happened to have that info right HERE) it is very clear that Manny Villar is the right man for the job TODAY. When President Manny Villar leaves office in 2016 I believe that GIBO TEODORO will be the right man to continue what was started by Manny during his 6 years in office, but only if he serves the people first as a senator and shows us that he is indeed his own man and can legislate as effectively as he talks.

For the most part the other candidates all bring something to the table. Like I stated earlier, each candidate has their own accomplishments which tread the line of their respective strengths. Fortunately for us, the Office of the President is not run by committee. There can be only one. (To borrow a line from Highlander) That person must embody the most qualities expected of a world leader. These others, while very capable, fall short when all the required qualifications are being considered, but as a group, have some undeniable character and potential. So to Gordon, Villanueva, Perlas, and DelosReyes, if I could scrunch you all into one person I could quite possibly put you into the position that I placed Gibo. I would dub you Gordonueva Perlosreyes. (Has a nice ring to it actually. Sounds like a Spanish soap star.)

Erap I respect you for the candid answers that you so freely throw out when asked some admittedly tricky questions. When asked about “other women” you freely admit “of course”. When asked about gambling you talk about legalizing jueteng as being one of your first acts if elected president. These do not strike me as the statements of a role model for our countries youth. I have trouble with statements from you like; “I want my power back” and “I want to be king again”. Erap, the fact is that you quite freely and openly spent hundreds of millions of your “share” of illegal gambling proceeds. The mess that exists with regards to the abuses in Customs is a direct result of your own meddling with that proverbial cash cow. The fact remains that you were removed as president once. If you “got off” it was due to technicalities and agenda. The highest office in the land is a yolk of service to the people not a throne of personal glory and vindication. The promises of public service that you spoke of when you were given your pardon should have remained the focus of your intentions. Let it go and be free.

Jamby, Jamby, Jamby......................................................Jamby.

Finally Noynoy, I want to reserve the deepest of what I would like to say to you, for the most part I consider you a VICTIM. Frequently I speak of agenda. You are a victim of that word. The Liberal party saw in your mother’s death an opportunity, an opportunity to place somebody in the Presidents Office. I actually believe that the spark of the idea that you could be president was actually hashed before Cory’s death. Certain vile individuals knowing that she would pass on due to her failing health had to consider what their options were. They knew that the battle for the presidency was not in the bag. Senator Villar, New Money, and not a member of the club, had already thrown in is hat by announcing that he was running. The thorn in their side was that they did not know when she would die. Mar was the logical and better choice for them. Once Cory died, and since Mar was not as strong in the polls, as they would have liked him to be, they hashed the plan to use what was left of Cory magic to place a ringer as the President of the Philippines. They just needed proof that the magic still lived. Cory’s funeral provided that proof and now here you are. Think about it Noynoy, your camp is already fighting over 2016 and you have not even been elected yet. The facts speak for themselves; you have repeatedly wasted the mandate given you by your voters each time you have been placed into office. Your record speaks loudly and it speaks clearly, but I am not able to blame even this squarely on your shoulders. I am not sure you are actually capable of accomplishing more than you have with your life. You might well be functioning at the outer limits of your capacity. I am sure your intellect is off the charts. I can see a quiet brilliance buried deep within your eyes. It is just that within those same eyes there seems to be a raging battle for control. What are you fighting with? Noynoy you must remember that it is impossible to fight FOR anything if you are in a battle WITH yourself. How can you serve the Filipino people if you are struggling with some secret inner Demon? I see you as a babe in the woods with a pack of wolves leading you back to their den. I hope you know plenty of tricks for their entertainment because as soon as they get bored with you I shudder to think what will happen. I sincerely wish the best for you…but not as the president of this fine nation.

What does a Train Wreck, Jesse James, and Tiger Woods have in common?

I find it interesting how we all really enjoy a good train wreck, the more gruesome the better. Two very recent train wrecks we have all basked in have been the ruining of the marriages of Tiger Woods and Jesse James.

We have all heard the sordid details of sexual escapades involving these men and some very questionable women. I find it funny how many people commented on how they could not believe what bad taste these guys had as opposed to the cheating in and of it self.

In a recent People Magazine article it discloses not only the fact that Sandra Bullock has indeed filed for a divorce but apparently had already been secretly in the process of adopting a 31/2 month old baby boy. It appears that before the infidelity bomb exploded Sandra wanted to add another child to the family roster already consisting of three of Jesse’s children from a previous relationship.

Train wrecks being what they are, I must ask just what have we learned, if anything, from all this? Men are pigs? Women should take better care of their pigs? Is a little money a dangerous thing when melting a hole in a guy’s pocket? Yes, I am trying to shed a little humor on a potentially heavy subject but I think that we can get something real out of these displays of public laundry washing.

Lets take a close look at our own relationships. How healthy are they? Do not ask “What have you done for me lately?” instead ask “What have I done for you lately?” If you are not happy with the level of intimacy that you have been receiving a quick look in the mirror should be your first option before going on the attack. How intimate have you been? How emotionally available have you made yourself? Have you taken care of yourself and remained as desirable to your mate as you were when you first met? DO you listen? Do you complain incessantly? Sometimes it is us who create the beast that we live with.

Congratulations Psyche for winning the Miss Philippines Earth Title!!

A very good friend of mine recently won the Title of Miss Philippines Earth. She will be heading to Vietnam soon to compete for the Miss Earth title. This young woman is truly deserving of this crown because she is a very kind, considerate, very intelligent, and of course beautiful person. From the time that I first met Psyche I have always seen her as a driven individual with definite opinions about the world around her.

She is not a child of comfort and convenience and has worked for hard for most of the opportunities that have come her way. It is because of this that I want to spotlight her accomplishment.

It takes a certain self confidence to stand before a panel of judges who are going to be critical of every aspect of your being. Dealing with the other candidates in a highly competitive environment also offers up its own set of challenges. By believing in herself and making the decision to do the very best that she could, Psyche stepped up to the plate and hit herself a life changing home run.

Lets all follow her in the coming year to see how she blossoms into the life of a celebrity beauty queen. ;o)

Thank you Big Daddy Richards of Traders Hub ;o)

I remember when I first started my blog. I was full of ideals and ideas. I had a message to deliver. I wanted to say something and I
wanted people to listen. I…I…I…I……

After having been a blogger for a relatively short period of time the realization has set in that a successful blog cannot be attained by “I”. I cannot after all be the only one reading my own posts. I cannot just sit in front of my computer agreeing with myself and wondering who this brilliant guy is writing all this deep and life changing stuff. (;o))

I have said from the beginning that my goal was to “build a community of like minded people”. Where there are numbers there is power. That was, and still is, my vision. Reality says that not everyone will agree with what I have to say. My argument is that disagreement breed’s discussion and when you discuss things with an open mind, every person in that conversation comes out of it a better person thus accomplishing another one of my stated goals which is to help people “be the best that they can be so that they can better take care of those that they love and care for”.

I have joined several communities of blog authors whose intent is to promote their sites via interaction with other site authors. One of these is Entrecard. I have found Entrecard to be an excellent platform to promote SFI and at the same time build friendships.

Basically Entrecard allows you to advertise your site on other sites by displaying a small banner ad someplace on the other site. (Hopefully at the top of the fold and not at the bottom of the page where you have to go searching for it…oh ahem excuse me…that is another post (;o)) You have to submit your site to the site you want to advertise on for that site’s approval to allow your site to be displayed. Believe it or not, my wholesome “G” rated site has been declined two times since being at Entrecard. Such is Democracy right?

Thus we come to the point of this post. While I respect the right of those sites to decline my site being advertised on theirs, I cannot help but wonder what it was about my site they disliked or did not agree with. I personally approve all sites that want to advertise their banners on my site.

Case in point: In the Philippines there is a Presidential election looming on the horizon. The lines have been drawn in the sand and it appears that it has come down to a struggle between two candidates; Senator Manny Villar and Senator Noynoy Aquino. There is a site called Traders Hub authored by no other than Big Daddy Richards. He is without a doubt a staunch supporter of Noynoy. His site’s banner is Noynoy and he devotes a good number of his site’s posts to Noynoy via negative posts about Manny. I on the other hand believe that Manny Villar is the man for the job. 

President Manny Villar
One day I find that Traders Hub advertised on my site. This would mean that his “Noynoy for President” political banner would appear on my site. What should I have done? Well, I did not have a problem with it. Why might you ask? It is because I am a member of a community of people that all do what they do because they want others to hear what they have to say, have ideals and ideas, and messages for their fellow man. Entrecard does not allow porn sites so what do I have to be worried about, right?

It is with this post that I want to thank Big Daddy Richards. I mentioned earlier that he posts, what I consider, attacks against Senator Manny Villar. I have on 2 occasions left comments on his site regarding topics he decided to pursue against Manny. My comments were in direct contrast to what he had to say. My comments were as much against his candidate as his posts were against mine. When I pushed “submit comment” I was not sure my comments would see the light of day, but to Big Daddy Richards credit, he published both comments in their entirety.

I applaud this and believe that he deserves a pat on the back. We can be political polar opposites and still be blogging friends. I appear on his Entrecard drop list and I have his drop list on my site. I think that we are both better people for this and as such, I am accomplishing my goals pertaining to why I became a blog author in he first place.

Do your kids have a "Right" to privacy?

We all demand a right to our privacy. There is a valid concern for who knows what about you. Everything from financial information to that brown shoe box that you keep stashed on the top shelf in the back of your closet. Lives, relationships, businesses, and even governments have been toppled because some piece of privileged information has fallen into the wrong hands.

What I would like to know is what you think about your child's right to privacy. When he/she is old enough to want to keep her/his bedroom door locked. Cell phones, internet, who their friends are, and where they go when they leave the house. What is your stand? Do you have a right to know? Do you think you should know?

For me, I want to know everything about my children. Where they go, what they do, who they know. I do not allow them to lock doors in the house. I have access to cell phones and internet accounts. I know their friends parents. Do I always exercise my right to "invade" all of these areas of their developing lives? I do occasionally with no rhyme or reason. With no malice of forethought, it is just something I do. It is something they expect. They do not mind either because it has always been that way.

We need to know everything about our children and their lives. This lessens the possibility of ever having to say, "I wish I knew".

P.S. My good friend over at fledgling blogger is celebrating his 100th post. In connection with this momentous occasion he is holding 2 contests to help spread some happiness to his readers as well. Click HERE to check out his site and how to enter both contests. GOOD LUCK! ;o)

New look for SFI ;o)

Thanks for the comments regarding the new look of SFI. I have always loved the layouts with multiple sidebars. I really enjoy checking out all the interesting things that people decide to place on them. My problem is that I am just not that tech savvy and am learning this stuff as I go along. I was really happy to hear about the Blogger Template Designer. This new Blogger feature makes it very easy to create a new design for your site with an abundance of layouts and looks to suit most every taste and need.

I will be adding some new things and getting rid of some old things in an effort to make your visits interesting as well as rewarding for those that actually participate. For my Entrecard friends one of the things that I have added is a "My Top Droppers" blogroll, so if you drop often your site will get an automatic link on my site. I am also working on a simple drop list. The websites that will appear on the list will not only be regular droppers but also post new articles regularly thus making it a more interesting surfing session for all involved. This will be some time in the making though. (If you post regularly, at least once every 7 days, and your Entrecard Widget is at the "TOP" of your site, please leave a comment below and I will check your site for inclusion on the list.)

Thanks to all and take care. ;o)

Earth Hour! Let's join the party ;o)

I think the poster says it all. Amazing how easy it will be for us to show some solidarity for the desire to save our planet. This planet after all is the only one we have. Unless Tom Cruise has some information that we don't have. ;o) (A friend at http://lakbaydiva.com/ posted about this. I agree that this is something worth spreading.)

Check out my new BLOG!! ;o)

I am so excited to tell you about my new site. It is called “Dads Against Pornography”. I know there will be a lot of mixed reactions out there but before you make any judgment calls please visit the site and read my opening post explaining the reasoning behind the creation of my new blog.

My hope is that many of you will identify with what the site is trying to do and in some way participate. All participation is and always will be appreciated and reciprocated.

The reason why this post is so short is so that you can head over to the new site and check it out. ;o) For all of my Entrecard friends, I will be placing the Entrecard widget on the site as soon as I have five posts on board.

Thank you all and take care. ;o)

Just thought I would share this with you. ;o)

Manny Pacquiao is a giant among men today. One of the greatest boxers living today, arguably one of the greatest boxers that has ever lived. This weekend he will be fighting Joshua Clottey who is himself amazed that he is going to be fighting the Pacman.

Both of these men come from simple backgrounds and through hard work and determination worked their way into the spotlight. Manny Pacquiao is nearing the end of his boxing career not because of age but because he has already accomplished more than any other boxer in history. If anything, after this fight, he has only one more thorn in his side; Floyd Mayweather Jr. who had previously retired as the best "Pound for Pound" fighter in the world. Joshua Clottey is himself no new comer to the ring but he readily admits that this fight is the biggest of his career.

People from every nation around the globe will be watching this fight. Just remember that while you are admiring the skill and determination on the screen in front of you, there is only your own determination or intent keeping you from attaining your goals in life. Remember to always live your life and don't let it live you. ;o)

The World is Coming to an END!!...now that I have your attention ;o)

The recent earthquake in Chile has had an effect on the Earth's axis. This according to a report by scientists from NASA. Due to the severity of the earthquake the length of our days have been shortened and the axis on which the earth rotates has been moved by about 3 inches.

The 9.1 Sumatran earthquake that created the Indian Ocean Tsunami shortened our day by 6.8 microseconds and moved the earth off its axis by about the same amount as the Chile shaker.

What were the long term effect of that earthquake and how were they exacerbated by this more recent event?

The weather being what it has been, world politics, wars, famine, disease, drought, earthquakes, and other natural and man-made disasters might have you asking questions. The Mayans predicted an end to the earth in the year 2012, Nostradamus has made similar predictions. The Bible even describes the world that we live in
today as being the "Last Days".

What do you think? Does the idea of this disturb you? Will it change how you live your life? How about how you look at the future of your children? Do you still want children if you do not yet have any?

Regardless of what happens to the earth as a whole we must all never forget that the gift of life is as fleeting as the wind and can be just as ethereal. Tomorrow is another day, this minute is what you can control and you should strive to do just that. Live your life, do not let it live you.

That being said, do you know how to start a fire using a shoelace or the bottom of a soda can? Good skills to have...

Take care my friends. ;o)

Entrecard Marketplace now it's own site. ;o)

Entrecard marketplace just went "Craigslist". Well they are not acutally craigslist but did use the famous marketplace site's name to describe what it's new Marketplace site looks like.

As a kicker they even offered 2,000 EC to the first 50 people to place an ad and post about it on their site. First you must place an ad which might look something like this.

After placing your ad you must post about it on your site which might amazingly enough look something like what you are reading now. ;o) Finally, just email Entrecard at support@entrecard.com and advise them of your site's URL and EC user profile then if you are one of the first 50 people to complete the task you will be given the 2,000 EC.

If you "Drop" visit a friend of mine ;o)

With the recent hullabaloo over at Entrecard regarding the use of the dastardly and dreaded "Ghost Droppers" lists out there, I want to introduce you to a friend of SFI that feels he has developed the answer to the dilemma facing both groups. One side abhorring the idea of a "ghost list" because the person using it does not actually visit your site yet will still get credit for clicking on your Entrecard Widget. (Which by the way; as the clicked site you still received your credit as well for the visit.) The real harm in this was that if you "regularly" updated your blogposts, your hard work would not be read by the person using the ghost list because they were not actually visiting your site. The other side of the coin were the people using these lists. I believe that the list was used as primarily a time saver. Dropping 300 cards a day can take a long, long, long, time.

The site I am writing this post about is called, Dropzone. You can find it via the following widget;


When you arrive at this site, you will be lead to a series of thirty buttons. The author of this site says that "You will save 270 clicks per day and avoid carpal tunnel syndrome". Who can argue with that logic? ;o) When you click on a button, a total of ten sites will open on your browser (Firefox is the recommended browser) and you will be able to visit and see the most recent post on each site. If your internet connection is good this can be accomplished very quickly using this system. Another thing that I really like about this service is that the sites he includes on is list all place the Entrecard widget "Above the fold" mostly right below the header. No Fuss No Muss.

If I could give some unsolicited advice to this site, it would be to monitor the sites on the list to make sure that the included sites post regularly. In this way, the users of this list will be sure that they are dropping on the sites of active authors who will be interested in participating in the Entrecard program the way it was envisioned by delivering quality traffic to our sites that participate by commenting and dropping. Take care my friends. ;o)

Martin of Cornyman Apologizes. This is a Good thing ;o)

Martin of Cornymans Money-Blog has apologized and removed the cards of those Entrecard Members from his blog thus ending once and for all the unfair indictment of those he labeled as "scammers" and "cheats". Following is the comment I left on his site regarding his apology;

Please accept my heartfelt concern for your child. Having personally experienced having a child being hospitalized for an extended period of time I full understand the stress that you had and may well still be enduring. I sincerely look forward to your child’s full recovery.

Regarding your apology, I want to say thank you for doing the right thing by making a public apology and by removing the cards which publicly indicted as “cheaters” and “scammers” those concerned from your site. It is obvious, even within your apology, that you still feel there are some out there whose sole intent it is to scam Entrecard and its members, I respect your right to hold that opinion.

It is unfortunate though that a certain few of those felt the need to remove their sites from Entrecard as a result of your post. Whether your post was the straw that broke the camels back or the primary reason makes no difference. I hope that they see fit to return to Entrecard once they see your apology and know that Entrecard appreciated your efforts but did not agree with labeling any of its members as cheaters.

We all have concerns or input about how Entrecard, “shoulda, coulda, woulda”. It is for us to convey these thoughts to Entrecard via whatever channels of communication might exist. It is for Entrecard to implement, censure, or further discuss any items they feel will benefit the greater good of its members at which time the members must decide if Entrecard still serves it needs.

With or without Entrecard we all still must remember that it is not the Entrecard Widget that engenders comments or interaction with our sites, it is good content and an aesthetically pleasing site that will get them to stop and take the time to let you know what they think.

Now that this is all behind us, I look forward to moving on and all of us being friends again. ;o) I will post this comment on my site as well as a link to your apology.

There will be those of you out there that will feel that the damage has been done and that the apology was not an open release of his unjust indictment. Just as with Martin having a right to his opinion, you too have a right to yours. Regarding the damage done, I agree it is impossible to retrieve a bullet once it has been fired. What we can learn from this is that we should all endeavor to be more careful in our dealings with others because we can all say or do something that we may someday regret. This lesson alone will make us all better husbands, wives, friends, etc.

Regarding the Cornyman "Scam" expose. Pahleeezzz!! ;op

Today I am posting about;

“Cornymans Money-Blog”
All you want to know about being financial independent... Saving, investing, earning money worldwide opportunities for your personal finances!

The previous being his blog title and by-line respectively.

On Wednesday February 13, 2010, Mr. Corny posted what he felt was an expose ala Heraldo Rivera about certain people “scamming” Entrecard members. An accusation he stated he unearthed via a “secret” test he conducted on the 8th and 9th of February.

Mr. Corny apparently removed the Entrecard widget from his site to see if his account would still reflect the cards of other sites being dropped on his account. Lo and behold to his “shocking” surprise, there were more than “65” despicable scammers out there in the vast wild territory called the internet.

What you need to know about this is that nowhere in the Entrecard system was Dropping Cards in this or similar manner referred to as a “SCAM” or “CHEATING”. The particular method of dropping cards which Mr. Corny referred to as, “A Ghost dropper list or a program that is dropping only on the yellow drop box”. These lists were openly marketed on sites right below the Entrecard Widget via their own widget usually titled something like “300 drops in minutes”. Every dropper has seen them and more than a few have clicked them to see what it was about. When you arrived at a site that offered the so called “ghost list” you were not greeted by a smoke filled dimly lit gritty room but a normal site who believed this to be a service for its fellow Entrecard members. You did not need some secret invite or password to enter this supposed covert world of Entrecard Scammery. If there was some negativity involved, I guess you could accuse the owners of the sites that offered these lists as trying to increase visitors to their sites who in turn would visit several pages and spend a longer period of time on each. I think that we would all like that particular benefit. I know one particular owner of one of these “ghost lists” that placed two of his own sites as the first and second one clicked. I guess he wanted to “scam” himself as well.

The primary concern for this manner of dropping would be that the people that use these lists do not see your current postings unless they make an effort to visit your site outside of dropping on one of these lists. I agree that if somebody did use one of these lists they should only use it at times when there were some issues with download speeds and when time issues prevented them from investing the time visiting upwards of 300 sites a day. Otherwise every other benefit of dropping and being dropped on is being enjoyed by both parties. The dropper shows his support for those on his list by dropping a card on their site thereby elevating that sites popularity score in Entrecard as well as getting the credits needed to place ads on other sites. Where else will these credits end up if not eventually used to buy advertising on Entrecard itself? Is there some syndicate I am not familiar with that trades in Entrecard Credits for the benefit of some terrorist organization?

I sent a message to the Administration of Entrecard about Mr. Corny’s post. Their response was as follows;

Hi David,
We are not affiliated with Cornyman and while we appreciate his investigation, Entrecard does not believe the users he listed are cheaters. We stand by our users.

Feedback received from user 13192 ( http://entrecard.com/user_details/13192 philippinepanda@aol.com ):

Following is the message that I sent the Entrecard Administration:

I visited a site called "CORNYMAN" (I think that is correct.) His recent post displayed the cards of several Entrecard members describing them as "Cheaters" and "scammers". My card was among them. I would just like to clarify a few things;

1. While faithfully dropping on sites, I frequently came upon a widget that looked just like the Entrecard widget which was placed just below the actual Entrecard widget. This widget stated, "300 drops in minutes". I never did click this widget. This widget was obviously out in the open for every Entrecard user to see including Mr. Cornyman. He did not have to undertake some secret experiment of deleting the Entrecard widget from his site to see if "ghost clicks" would appear.
2. One day I received a thank you message from a site the I had commented on; (See Attached)

Many thanks for such comments. They are meaningful and full of insights.

Just a thought...maybe there are days you are so busy and have little time to complete dropping 300 ECs in a day...I would like to share with you my personal EC Quickie Dropper (http://hereanythinggoes.info/ec-quick-dropper/) ...this system is free ... you may finish dropping 300 ECs in around 3 to 6 minutes per day...


This site is called "Here I am" and you can check my message in box to verify this message. Again, this "quick dropper" was not a secret and open for anybody visiting this site to see.
3. I have never seen anything on Entrecard telling its members not to use this type of system. The widget was clearly displayed on a lot of sites openly offering this service to all Entrecard members. The widget displayed on this sites list looked exactly like the Entrecard Widget with the "Drop" on it.
4. The sites that were on this system were by and large sites that I had already been dropping on. I did not use this system daily but only during those times that I was short on time and wanted to fulfill the commitment that I had made to Entrecard to drop as many cards as possible. I still commented and visited these sites frequently.
There was no malice in my heart using this system those times that I did. I was not aware that using this system was not allowed by Entrecard seeing as how it was so openly "marketed" even here at Entrecard. I take it as a personal insult and slander to be called a "cheater". This person even ranted on about how "these cheaters" should not be dropped on, etc.
I want to know what Entrecard’s position is on my situation. I do not feel that there should have been this blanket statement without knowing the specific circumstance of each individual involved.
I have fully supported Entrecard by giving it top of the fold placement as required by your rules not like many sites that bury the widget at the bottom of the page. I market the site to try to build referrals. Check your system to see how many times the Entrecard widget with my referral id was displayed.
Please respond to me as soon as possible. I really do value my name and the reputation of my site to much to allow it to be besmirched by this part time wanna be private eye who does not ask questions before shooting.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Entrecard Support

I appreciate the quick response from Entrecard and its subsequent defense of those on this list of alleged “scammers” to which I have been included.

I believe that Mr. Corny owes those sites he defamed by outwardly calling them “scammers” and publicly humiliating them an apology and a retraction of his post or removal of specific sites and their corresponding images from his site and the defamatory post. He has a right to his own personal opinion of the issue but he does not have the right to slander others and convict them as “scammers” without any type of due process hearkening to “shoot first and ask questions later”.

In closing, please visit Mr. Corny’s site. He apparently needs the visitors badly. I hope that you will also comment on his posts and tell him how brilliant he is because I believe that all of this was about a small man that needs to be puffed up. There was a better more “educated” way to approach this subject. I just wish that Mr. Corny himself can open up his evidently vast consciousness to this reality.

Add your site to my Mcklinky list and state your opinion as well. Take care. ;o)

Part 4 of "Belief" Let's discuss it. ;o)

This is part 4 of the "Belief" series. I hope that you enjoy it. ;o)

....The fantastic thing about all this is that you just have to decide that you believe in whatever it is that you want. Initially you may need certain things to help you focus the will of your intent. Meditation, religion, philosophy, education, lucky rock, rabbit’s foot, crucifix, dream board, self help books, crystals, and seminars; whatever. Intent is a power in and of itself, and just like a bolt of lightning; it can be harnessed and focused towards the accomplishment of any goal. As more and more positive opportunities come your way and you are able to take advantage of them, the easier it will be for you to accept the reality of the fact that it really is not that hard to create your own universe. You have to decide that this course of action is not only what you want, but that you are going to actually start living the life that you want for yourself. Yes, it is that easy. It is if you BELIEVE it is. Nike says, “Just do it” I like to say, “Just LIVE it”. Is Warren Buffet any more brilliant than any other mega investor in the world? Arguably yes he may well be, but I believe that he is so successful not only because of his brilliance in and of itself but also because he believes that he is the best and as such will make decisions based on entirely his own interpretation of whatever information he is given to the exclusion of the advice of many others who would have never made the same investment. Every time that he is right, this bolsters his self belief and thus makes him even more powerful. He just simply wills things into existence. Cool right?

The fantastic thing about all this is that you just have to decide that you believe in whatever it is that you want. Initially you may need certain things to help you focus the will of your intent. Meditation, religion, philosophy, Are we talking about magic or some arcane telepathic power? Well if these thoughts make it easier for you to grasp the ideology, why not, but in fact; no we are not talking about magic or anything of the kind. Just like anything worth having in life, you have to work for it and have patience in the realization of its fulfillment. If you plant a watermelon seed today, will you wake up tomorrow to giant sweet watermelons the next morning?....

Sometime soon I will be posting part 5 of "Belief". Take care my friends. Please comment or ask questions. ;o)

Is your site GOOD or EVIL?

In the course of my internet journeys I happened upon a site that had a widget which displayed how "evil" (yes I said EVIL) that site was. It actually quoted a percentage amount in a widget located on that sites side-bar. Of course I was immediately intrigued by this. I mean I pride myself for having a positive site geared towards helping and creating good will and peace through self security. Well as you can see by the results below, my site is not perfectly benevolent after all...;o)

This site is certified 74% GOOD by the Gematriculator

This site is certified 26% EVIL by the Gematriculator

The following is an explanation of how this site comes up with its numbers...

"The Gematriculator is a service that uses the infallible methods of Gematria developed by Mr. Ivan Panin to determine how good or evil a web site or a text passage is.

Basically, Gematria is searching for different patterns through the text, such as the amount of words beginning with a vowel. If the amount of these matches is divisible by a certain number, such as 7 (which is said to be God's number), there is an incontestable argument that the Spirit of God is ever present in the text. Another important aspect in gematria are the numerical values of letters: A=1, B=2 ... I=9, J=10, K=20 and so on. The Gematriculator uses Finnish alphabet, in which Y is a vowel.

Experts consider the mathematical patterns in the text of the Holy Bible as God's watermark of authenticity. Thus, the Gematriculator provides only results that are absolutely correct."

It actually gives you a full breakdown of every word in your site and all the commensurate values it gives to each. If you have a site try inputting your site to see what score it gets. If you do not have a site, you can input any site's address. Let me know via the Mcklinky. (Might as well get a little link love for participating) (Links not giving a score from the above source will not be kept in the Mcklinky.) This is just something interesting I found along the way. Have some fun with it. I am not endorsing nor am I bashing any belief in numerology or any other similar idea or belief. (Just read my "Belief" posts.) Take care. ;o)

Do you have a child, senior, wife, or husband whose safety is your concern?

There is a great little gadget that I found the other day while surfing the internet. It is a pocket sized GPS or Global Positioning System unit. This device is small enough to fit into a pocket, briefcase, computer bag, or backpack.

The idea behind this little James Bondish piece of technology is that its location can be followed via satellite. The unit itself can send you real time updates by sending you text messages notifying you of its current location; even opening a communications line allowing you to hear any sounds or conversations around the unit. Following the location of the unit is also possible by internet.

The unit has a “Panic Button” that when activated will notify pre-programmed contacts of an “emergency” situation. There is even a “Geofencing” alert which will notify the same pre-programmed contacts if the unit is moved more than 500 meters from a preset position. It works via GPS and GSM cell networks (Cingular & T-Mobile) meaning that you only have to insert a SIM from your existing telephone network for the unit to work. No monitoring fees from the manufacturer of the unit itself.

If you are a parent, this is a wonderful way to keep track of your child. By discreetly placing the unit inside the pocket or jacket of your child then programming into the unit the schools location or that of your home, the unit can notify you if the child has been moved from that location without your permission.

This unit can be easily placed on the visor of a car, in your lap-top carrier, or pretty much anything you would want to find again if stolen.

One of the worst things that can happen to a person of any age is abduction. A woman wrestled into a dark hallway in a parking structure can activate the “panic” button thus notifying a loved one the she needs help. A senior citizen has a major medical problem either at home or while shopping. The unit can let loved ones know that something happened then assist them in finding that person whether he/she is conscious or not.

Of course the best defense is living a life that does not put you or loved ones into situations where there might be increased risk but sometimes things can go very wrong very quickly through no fault of our own. It is for these times that “chance favors the prepared”. Take care my friends. ;o)

(This is not a paid endorsement of any device or service.)

Guns? What do you think?

Photo from: http://fun-pics.com/guns.html
Here in the Philippines it is election season. The people of this proud nation will soon be electing a new president. As a result of the elections and the preceding campaign period, a nationwide gun ban has been implemented with the intent of minimizing or eliminating gun related violence.

Violence has been a part of Philippine politics for a very long time. Armed factions have sought to change the political landscape of this country for generations. The tampering of ballots, outright threat, and as witnessed by the recent Maguindanao massacre; murder.

It can be argued that by eliminating firearms totally, it would stand to reason; the use of firearms would definitely be controlled. Political thugs and their ilk would have to resort to using clubs and knives to do their dirty work. Would then the call to ban all sticks and knives be made for the same reason? Just asking.

In the United States police officers are allowed and often expected to carry their firearms while off duty and out of official uniform. The current gun ban, as executed here, will land an off duty police officer carrying his firearm in jail, what more any regular law abiding citizen who has a licensed firearm and a legally obtained permit to carry? If a fully trained and commissioned police officer cannot be trusted, Would it be logical to assume that a civilian with no criminal intent could not be trusted with this privilege either? Should either parties ability to defend themselves or their loved ones be taken away?

What about criminals themselves? Can they be trusted to follow the gun ban? Do we believe that they have obtained their firearms through legal means? In a country with thousands of islands and teetering on a population of nearly 100 million people, can we expect a severely undermanned police force to provide its citizenry the protection it truly needs?

Photo from: http://fun-pics.com/guns.html
Of course we are just talking about a ban on the carrying of firearms and not the ownership of firearms in general. Although, admittedly there are those truly idiotic individuals out there who do not deserve the privilege of owning a gun. I speak of the college administrators who threaten gas station attendants and the Jason Ivlers who kill people due to minor traffic altercations. In fairness of course to the good guys, these aforementioned morally challenged individuals changed sides to the bad guys and cannot be used as part of any arguments meant to take away the rights of us good guys.

Just to clarify my own opinion. I believe that law abiding citizens should have the right to own a legally obtained firearm. I believe that law abiding citizens should be required to take a psychiatric test and undergo a background investigation to provide a legal baseline that the citizen in question is in fact, “law abiding”. I believe that every gun owner should undergo a rigorous training program and be tested and retested upon renewal of any permit or license to demonstrate a minimum proficiency with regards to the handling and firing of any firearm. Finally, I believe that there should be stiff penalties for all gun related crime.

I want to know what you think. There is no right or wrong opinion. You have a right to state your belief here and have it heard and reacted to by others who will in turn have their own opinion. I sincerely hope to hear what you have to say.

Who and Why? Choose Carefully

If you had to vote for the next President of the Philippines today, who would you vote for and why? I have always wondered who responded to these surveys that get so much attention. Now is your chance to speak up and give your opinion. The upcoming elections are so very important for the Philippines. Take a long hard look at each of the candidates and decide who you think will give you and your loved ones a better future.
