After weeks of monitoring the latest news about Gina Carano, MMAWeekly.com was able to do an interview with her during the Fight Expo last week. Since the Strikeforce's acquisition of EliteXC's prized fighters, I have been waiting for the Carano versus Cyborg match this April 11. Too bad or perhaps good as well, Gina has to go through some detoxification or in my own understanding, refocusing on her goals while re-energizing mind and spirit. Even tough fighters need time to think and rest. Nonetheless, Gina won't be missed for that long since she mentioned that next on her big plans is definitely having a fight. Gina Carano is not just a unique special MMA fighter but a special person as well.

It was around 1995 when I almost did a successful attempt to play lotto. But too bad, I was 13 years old way back. The lady in the counter foiled my attempt. Way back, it was only 6/42. Now it has evolved into many varieties like 6/45, 6/49, tres pares, swertes and others.
This video shows the difference between working for money and using a leverage to earn money. Simple yet realistic presentation. Bruno symbolizes most of the people who are engaged in some form of employment. The amount of working time is directly proportional with the amount of income. On the other hand, Pablo is more of an investor or business person who doesn't have to exchange time with income. Of course, there have been a tremendous effort at the start to build the leverage (pipeline).

My two and a half-year old laptop is partitioned into two operating system: Window$ XP and Ubuntu 8.04. Majority of the programming and development work will be done the Ubuntu partition while Windows is for multimedia (flash, audio ripping) and image manipulation (paintshop pro). It was only today that I was able to make the Broadcom B43 WLAN worked under Ubuntu. Thanks to Ubuntu's warning messages. It led me to linuxwireless.Org
Parte na ng kulturang pinoy ang magtataho. Sino bang bata ang hindi lumaki na nakarinig ng mamang sumisigaw ng "taho!!!" bawat umaga. Depressed areas or subdivision ng mga elitista, malamang ay nalibot na ng mamang magtataho. Dumating iyong panahon na halos ang kinanakain namin ay taho tuwing almusal dahil walang nagluluto sa umaga. Sa lakas ba namang sumigaw ng magtataho sa amin, hindi maaring ma-miss ang kanyang paninda. Physically fit at may operatic voice ang mga magtataho for sure!
PDIC has recently announced the initial liquidation of funds to the depositors of the bankrupted Legacy Group rural bank. Lots of speculations as to whether PDIC can sustain the release of funds amounting to billions of pesos. The amount is greater than the Fertilizer scam that involves former DA undersecretary Jocjoc Bolante. Add the fact that the trails of the real culprit of Legacy's failure have been carefully tainted, the curtain for a bigger showdown between the depositors and Celso Delos Angeles and his cohorts. Even some former managers of Legacy are going up against Mr. Delos Angeles.
March 9, 2 AM. After two and a half months of reading, I finally made it to the last chapter of The Start-Up Entrepreneur book. James R. Cook, the author of the book, provides out-of-experience insights for aspiring entrepreneurs in starting, managing, diversifying up to selling business ventures. Being a serial entrepreneur himself, Cook shares his experiences while relating the events to the principles of many American entrepreneurs like Andrew Carnegie, Henry Ford, Napoleon Hill and Thomas Watson.
We were at the National Bookstore yesterday and I got the chance to read Francisco Colayco's Wealth within your Reach book. Due to self-imposed budget tightening rule, I decided to just kill the time by reading a few chapters. One of the chapters talks about a couple who are earning big buck in the 1980's. Lavish lifestyle, unexpected circumstances (i.e. husband was downsized from work) and uncontrollable debts, their financial status have suffered and fallen. The chapter shows one important lesson, live within your means.

The premier master rapper of the Philippine music scene has joined the Almighty Creator today, March 6. Francis Magalona (Kiko, the Man from Manila) started a rap genre, a genre that is very famous in the US. Yet,FrancisM was able to infused the craft with nationalistic and patriotic messages. His song, Mga Kababayan Ko, has taken the country by storm. I still do memorized this song. My favorite song (and my all-time fave OPM) among his creation is Kaleidoscope World.
It was March of 1999 when Mrs San Miguel, our highschool coordinator, approached me to show a page in inquirer bearing my name as one of the "lucky" passers of DOST RA 7687 scholarship program. Two of us in the school made it. Without thinking twice, I signed the contract. I am not concerned about the lack of research and development (RND) personnel in the Philippines, the main rationale of the government's S&T scholarship program. The thought of having an absolutely free college tuition and a regular monthly stipend overshadows any form of doubt. Snippets of events of being a DOST scholarship recipient:
