  • Fighting Nostalgia

    It’s been more than a week now since the last time I blogged. I was interrupted by some social events in the workplace and by some activities at home. I also noticed that I easily get tired lately that I felt the need breath out and rest so I was asleep most of the time. And during my spare time, I can’t help but to watch television these past few days, and it seems to be that it is becoming a part of my routine before I get to bed or after coming from work. That could be a sign of homesickness, a separation anxiety that anyone who’s away from home has to deal with.Image Source: http://thepleat.com/

    From Technorati, only then I came across with Blogcritics which from my research, is an online magazine which offers writing reviews in all aspects covering all the contemporary culture and society with more than 3600 registered writers. Image Source: http://www.ryjennings.com

    The first time Friendster was introduced was the actual hallmark or the beginning of the interactive social media connection and "Friendster" being the pioneer was considered as the original and even the "father" of all social networks. Image Source: http://atothepandm.files.wordpress.com

  • Technorati: verifying the Claim Token

    In order to optimize my blog, I need Technorati to have my blog become more visible in search engine. Unlike here in Blogger.com, in Wordpress.com, blogs can be automatically visible from search engines by adjusting the setting without making too much effort to increase traffic, but since I migrated here, I had to register and claim authorization on my blog.

  • World Press Freedom Day

    What could have been with a world without freedom to express? It could have been a diversity of prisoners in detentions with no chance to claim the rights to be heard. It could have been a place where there is no room to break the silence and the use of mouth to speak is not possible in which the chain and the mode of communication seems to be weak and built without advocacy.

Japan: The Momentous Tragic Event

While Middle East is on the verge of tremor due to series of revolts that preceded violence causing the death of many activists for a rally of anti-government movement, the world fixed eyes suddenly was interrupted by a momentous tragic event in north-eastern Asia when Japan was hit by a sequence of earthquakes with an 8.9 magnitude at its maximum while generating a 30 feet big waves of tsunami.

Instead of a terrorized “Day of Rage” awaited current event, I was stunned with disastrous happening going on in Japan as I turned on the television to watch news updates. Witnessed how the big tidal waves enveloped the land space of the country on the videos presented, made real goose bumps. 

I never had a second thought when I contacted my family in the Philippines as I heard that the entire Pacific had been put on alert as well for an aftershock effects without even verifying in which specific area first just to check on them and to inform them as well that I am safe that the demonstration here in Riyadh had failed to materialize.

Status updates on facebook and twitter, blogs, comments from other social networking sites really struck me as well and made me asked “what the hell is going on?!” The environmental catastrophic event seemed to be more alarming than terrorists’ attack or activists’ revolution. 

Would it be a way of the environment to get even with its inhabitants? Or just the nature’s way to balance itself through changing its formation. Moreover, this natural disaster had taken away thousands people’s lives and had caused serious damaged to infrastructures and other properties. 

Meanwhile, the United States, Philippines and other countries extended their assistance including other organization like Red Cross, and though, Japan being one of the richest countries would definitely have a hard time getting up after being hit by this disastrous calamity.
