Christopher Cross



Christopher Cross (born Christopher Geppert on May 3, 1951) is an American singer-songwriter from San Antonio, Texas. His debut album earned him all of the "Big Four" Grammy Awards in one year, a feat that is yet to be equalled. He also received an Oscar and a Golden Globe relating to his work with music in hit films.

He is best known by most for his Top Ten hit songs, "Sailing", "Ride Like the Wind", and "Arthur's Theme (Best That You Can Do)," the latter of which he performed for the film Arthur starring Dudley Moore and Liza Minnelli. "Sailing" earned three awards at the 1981 Grammy Awards Ceremony, while "Arthur's Theme" won the Oscar for Best Original Song in 1981 (with co-composers Burt Bacharach, Carole Bayer Sager and Peter Allen.)

Cross first played with a San Antonio based cover band named Flash before signing a solo contract with Warner Bros. Cross released his self-titled debut album, Christopher Cross in 1979, which garnered him five Grammy Awards. He is the first and only artist to personally receive all of the "Big Four" Grammy Awards (Best Record, Song, Album, and New Artist) in the same year. Although Norah Jones' debut album Come Away with Me and song "Don't Know Why" won the same four awards in 2003, she did not personally receive the Song of the Year Grammy because it is a songwriter's award. Hits from this album included "Sailing", "Ride Like the Wind" (featuring backing vocals by Michael McDonald) and "Never Be the Same".

His second album, Another Page, which came out in 1983, included the hit songs "Think of Laura", "No Time For Talk", and "All Right." "All Right" was used by CBS Sports for its highlights montage following the 1983 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, won in an upset by North Carolina State, which defeated the University of Houston in the championship game, 54-52. Although Another Page sold respectably, it did not nearly live up to the high expectations set by his debut album.

Cross released his third album Every Turn of the World in 1985. However, the album failed to produce any top 40 hits, and did not sell well. He went on to make three more albums in the 90's and although some of his releases have gained critical response, he has failed to catch the mass audience he once enjoyed. Many think this has been due to his inability to transition to the music video format. Simply said, Cross' on-screen persona did not come across very well in the mid 1980s, when many bands like Duran Duran instead maintained an air of androgynous sexuality for their music videos. After his decline in the mid-1980s, Cross has toured and opened for various acts since the 90's and releasing his second Greatest Hits package in 2002.

Cross completed a new Christmas album and on November 15, 2007, which was released exclusively on iTunes. He is working on a new studio album that is expected to be released in 2008. Today, he does about 100 live performances a year. Cross performed on November 6, 2007 at Flemington Racecourse, singing "Ride Like the Wind" as part of the pre-race entertainment for the 2007 Melbourne Cup.

In recent years, his daughter, Madison has become a singer and actress.

Most Expensive Computer in the World

The Japanese government estimates the Earth Simulator cost $400,000,000, making it the most expensive computer ever built. The budget for the Earth Simulator project was authorized for the National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA) and the Power Reactor and Nuclear Fuel Development Corporation (PNC) in 1997, and NEC Corporation made the winning bid for the Japanese project.

By May 2002, the 640 processor node supercomputer was benchmarked with Linpack as having 35.86 TFlop/s performance. This gave it the top spot on the TOP500 Supercomputer Sites list until 2004 when IBM’s BlueGene/L supercomputer took its place using an architecture that cost less than half as much to implement.

Each processor node in the Earth Simulator contains 8 vector processors running at 500MHz with 16GB of shared memory, and the total main memory in the machine is 10 terabytes. The operating system running on the supercomputer is NEC’s UNIX-based OS called “SUPER-UX” which is used on NEC’s SX Series of supercomputers.

This expensive computer is used for a wide variety of international projects, most of which are related to atmospheric, climate, and oceanographic simulation.

Windows XP Already Phase-out?



A newsletter arrived from my e-mail yesterday, stated the following information:

============================================================

After months of rumors that Microsoft might rethink its decision to pull the plug on Windows XP, the official word is out: XP is on its way out.

Microsoft is sticking to its plan to cease providing PC makers with XP to preload on new PCs after June 30, as Microsoft is now letting customers know via a letter it has posted to its Windows XP and Windows Vista Web sites.

The June 23 letter, entitled “An Update on the Windows Roadmap,” from Bill Veghte, Senior Vice President, Online Services & Windows Business Group, reiterated that PC makers won’t be getting more copies of Windows XP to load on new machines after June 30, 2008. (There are two exceptions to this rule: “white box” system builders and makers of ultra-low-cost PCs are allowed to continue to preload XP through 2009 and 2010, repectively.)

Microsoft support for XP doesn’t end on June 30; free Microsoft-provided support for XP continues through April 2009. Microsoft “Extended” support — for which users must pay (other than for security-specific hot fixes and various self-help tools, which are free) — lasts through 2014.

There is no new information about the Windows roadmap in Veghte’s letter. Veghte acknowledged that Vista — especially in its initial release — was not an easy Windows release for many customers to swallow. From his letter:

“The architectural changes that improved security and resilience in Windows Vista led to compatibility issues with existing hardware and applications. Many hardware drivers and applications needed to be updated, and while the majority worked well when we launched Windows Vista, some key applications and drivers were not yet available. Since then, Microsoft and its industry partners have been hard at work to address compatibility issues and now the situation is fundamentally different.”

Windows 7 is coming three years after Windows XP’s Vista’s release, Veghte reminded users. (Microsoft officials have been saying lately on the record that the company is shooting for a late 2009 release for Windows 7.)

What’s your take? Should Microsoft have extended XP’s end-of-life date one more time? Or is the company right in not wanting to send mixed messages to the public about whether Vista is really (finally) ready for prime time?

Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit (PlayStation 3)



If you've managed to steer clear of the popular Dragon Ball Z anime for this long, you can be forgiven for thinking that Burst Limit is a game best ignored. Nevertheless, you'd be wrong. Though this 3D fighter is full of references for the fans, it's a good game in its own right and can serve as an easy point of entry into the DBZ universe.

Burst Limit goes out of its way to be accessible to newcomers with a thorough tutorial that walks you through all of the controls while introducing you to a handful of the characters that make up the game's roster. The fact that all of the PlayStation 3 controller's face and shoulder buttons have multiple uses can be daunting initially, but there are no complex combos or character-specific special attacks to memorize, and even the craziest-looking moves aren't much more difficult to perform than a straightforward punch to the face. You'll need some semblance of skill to time your attacks and to block those of your opponents, but after spending half an hour with the tutorial, you should have little trouble holding your own in a fight, regardless of which character you choose.

Even spectacular-looking attacks can be performed with a minimum of effort.

Only three combatants are available at the outset, but as you progress through the lengthy Z-Chronicles story mode, you'll unlock the rest of the roster for a total of 21. In Z-Chronicles mode, you get to play through three of the five Japanese Dragon Ball Z sagas, and you experience some of their most memorable battles from the perspectives of both good and evil characters. The Saiyan, Frieza, and Cell sagas as they're told here represent only a tiny fraction of the anime material, but there's generally enough dialog between characters to at least let you know why they're fighting, and that's all you need.

As you play through the 50-plus battles of Z-Chronicles mode for the first time, you'll inevitably unlock most of what Burst Limit has to offer, including a good number of the game's "drama pieces." These brief cutscenes are triggered by events during a fight and invariably benefit the character to which they're relevant in some way. For example, drama pieces can increase one or more of your attributes for a short time, restore some health, or call upon a partner to get you out of trouble. Drama pieces also go a long way toward making Burst Limit feel more like the anime that it's based on by employing quick camera cuts and dramatic close-ups that wouldn't be practical during normal gameplay. By unlocking and subsequently equipping up to three different drama pieces, you can customize a character to suit your play style, and to unlock all of them you need to play through the Z-Chronicles several times. New partners, attacks, and character transformations can also be unlocked in this mode, so you'll probably want to beat it at least once before venturing online to really put your skills to the test.

Students' Characteristics

It is now on my second week of teaching computer and internet subjects for the 3rd and 4th year students here in Holy Cross Academy, as my relationship toward the students is getting better, I can now determined what are their characteristics, even on the first day of our laboratory activities. I am currently teaching 8 sections in this school, 4 for the 3rd year level and also 4 sections for seniors, averaging 45 students per section. During our first meeting,
I presented to them my requirements for the subjects; I am going to teach them how to create a static website using both note pad and Dreamweaver and and graphic application such as fireworks for the third year and Dynamic website, Animation using Flash Application and Simple database using MS Access for the 4th year level. I came out to this Idea after consulted them of what computer software they use during their previous year, After I found out that they are almost the same in response (both 4th year and 3rd year), They are only knew how to use MS office application, even though they have a textbooks for their computer subject but their teacher did not use it. This is one of the reasons why so many parents reacted very much about their computer subjects. Now, they are on the 3rd exercises for their laboratory works, and I can see their faces their interest of this subjects.

As the second week of the classes starts, Our Academic Coordinator reminds me that I have to teach two sections from the second year level. Wtf! another lesson plan reparation come first in my mind.

First Day High!

Today marks the first day of classes for school year 2008-2009. It’s my first day of teaching in high school students in a private school. During our flag ceremony, as I looked at all the 3rd year and 4th year students, I feel nervous though excited, I will teach computer and internet subjects in 7 sections which averaging 50 students per class. I know it is not an easy task, my students’ capacity on the fields of information technology after they graduate in high school will be based on what I had taught them. I know it is not an easy job dealing with high school students, all kinds of character can be found, students who are very noisy, “pasaway”, KSP, troublemaker, super genius, etc. I have to be careful, every move I make, regardless of knowledge, I’m confident enough, I already prepared my lessons, the only things I need to them is their attention and focus of this subjects.

Pinoy's Pride!


The Philippines entries for the search for the New 7 Wonders of Nature dominates in top 10 among other entries around the globe. the Tubbataha Reef is in rank 3, while the Chocolate Hills in rank 4, Puerto Princesa Subtteranean River National Park in rank 6, and now the Mayon Volcano in rank 10. It is a very wonderful news for every Filipino because these entries brings the honor in our country. Let us continue vote for our nation's pride!

ASUS R700t

The Asus R700t portable navigation system features a slim design and has an integrated traffic receiver. You also get a complimentary subscription to the traffic services, integrated Bluetooth, and 3D building renderings.

While best known for its computer components and motherboards, Asus is branching out to all sorts of consumer electronics, including GPS. The Asus R700t is one of its first portable navigation devices, and we must admit we're pleasantly surprised. The slim device is easy to use and features some great navigation tools that aren't commonly found in other PNDs. For example, the R700t shows 3D building renderings on its maps, and it has an embedded traffic receiver. In addition, you get a free lifetime subscription to the Traffic Message Channel. Given all these great features, we were shocked and ultimately disappointed that the system lacked text-to-speech functionality. If Asus adds this technology and fixes some of the performance glitches we experienced during our test period, the company could compete well in this space. The Asus R700t is available now for $325.

Design
At just 3.1 inches high by 5 inches wide by 3.1 inches high by 0.5 inch deep and weighing 7 ounces, the Asus R700t is one of the slimmest portable navigation systems we've seen in a while--quite a feat considering the number of features that are crammed into the device. On front, there's a 4.3-inch touch screen that shows off 65,000 colors at a 480x272-pixel resolution. The display has a light-sensing technology that will automatically optimize the backlighting for your current environment. During our test drives, we didn't have any problems viewing maps and the touch screen was responsive.

Features
The Asus R700t has an impressive feature list, though there's one omission that perplexes us (more on this later). To start, the R700t is equipped with a SiRFstarIII GPS receiver and comes preloaded with TeleAtlas maps of North America, including Hawaii, Puerto Rico, and Canada. Planning a trip can start several ways. You can enter a specific address, coordinates if you know them, select a point of interest, or choose a location from your Favorites or History list.

Performance
As far as general performance, the Asus R700t could be sluggish at times, despite having a 400MHz processor. It takes several minutes for the Navigation application to start up, so don't freak out if you don't see anything happening for a while. Also, there were a couple of times where we had to reset the device after the system froze on us. It only happened twice but still, a little cause for worry.

Request Approved!

I'm so happy that my proposal for the renovation of computer lab. in the school has been approved by our school principal. Being a comlab in-charge and at the same time teaching computer and internet class for all 3rd and 4th year HS students is my great responsibility how to give a quality education to our students. Currently, our school computer laboratory consisting only of 32 fully functioned computer units, that's after I fixed all the defective parts, knowing that there are 50 students/class, our current units of computers is not enough to cater all the students, and also the current set up, cannot accommodate to add more units. That's is why I make a proposal to change its lay out and also request to add 20 more units of computer to make it 50 units for the class and 2 units for file servers. As our principal review my proposal, she is amazed and approved my proposal. I want to teach my students the best that I can, teaching the latest trends of technology to help them be aware of its impact for them being belong to the modern generation.

As of now, my adsense revenue is already in $ 87.61 and when it reach $100, I can claim my first adsense income.

Tips on how to boost your income in adsense; use other computer such as in the internet, click your adsense in your blog, (do not log in to your google account, google will trace you), click every sponsored product in you adsense, use adsense for search rather than adsense for click.

I posted here some our pics during blogging session last night at one of the café here in digos. Working hard for our future, D:

Wala lng! ganahan lng ko mag butang ani, jejeje!Ang babae nga maoy dahilan sa akong pag kugi...jejeje!

Who is Japan's richest man?

At $7.8 billion, which Japanese businessman has the country's highest net worth? A gambling kingpin? A Warren Buffet-style investor? A new-economy entrepreneur?

Nope. According to Forbes, it's 80-year-old Hiroshi Yamauchi, former president of Nintendo and the man credited with turning the company from a small-time playing card manufacturer into the video games giant now dominating the console market.

Yamauchi stepped down in 2005 after 55 years at Nintendo, but still owns significant stock in the Japanese company, propelling him to an impressive $2.5 billion in income. Not bad for a retiree, eh? Yamauchi even felt sufficiently secure that he refused a multi-million dollar pension, reportedly stating that the company could put it to better use.

Of course, if we're looking at the comparative wealth of games company execs, Yamauchi has a little way to go before he reaches the top spot: Bill Gates, chairman of Microsoft and the world's third richest man, has a net worth almost eight times greater, at $58 billion.

Nokia Bluetooth Speakers MD-7W

One of the best things about reviewing gadgets is the chance to play with something you've never played with before. This time we're not talking about a particularly groundbreaking technology, but even so it's still pretty cool.

Though we've reviewed quite a few cell phone speakers, all of the models that we've examined have used a wired connection to the phone. So, we now turn our attention to the Nokia Bluetooth Speakers MD-7W. Simple in form and function, the MD-7W speakers are portable, easy to use, and offer decent audio quality to boost. At $179 they won't come cheap, but we couldn't help but like them.

As cell phone speakers go, the MD-7W speakers are on the larger side. Each speaker measures 4.13 inches by 2.6 inches by 2.04 inches and weighs 5.6 ounces. That means they won't slip into your pocket, but you shouldn't have any problem carrying them in a bag or purse. Thanks to magnets in each speaker, you can clasp them together in a single cube for even easier portability. Also, Nokia includes a carrying pouch for added protection.

Setup is beyond easy. The connecting cable is 15.7 inches, so you're given a fair amount of room to separate each speaker. Yet, we noticed that the speakers were the slightest bit wobbly. You can tip them backward with a gentle push so we recommend that you place them on an even surface.

The only controls are on the right side of the right speaker. There's a volume rocker, a power/pairing button, and a control that activates the 3D stereo-widening sound feature. All of the buttons are large and tactile. Below them are a charger port and a 3.5mm audio jack for the included line-in cable. You can use the cable with a non-Bluetooth phone or a Bluetooth phone that doesn't have a stereo A2DP profile.

To pair the speakers with a phone, you'll need to hold down the power button until the light behind the right speaker grille blinks rapidly. We took just a few seconds to connect our Nokia 5300 Xpress Music, and we were ready to go. The light will continue to blink slowly when music when music is playing; it will flash red when you're turning the power off.

When listening to music, you can adjust the volume both on the phone and on the speakers. The stereo-widening feature didn't make a noticeable difference, but it's a nice feature just the same. When using the line-in cable as an antenna, you also can use the speakers to listen to your phone's FM radio.

When testing with our 5300 Xpress Music, sound quality was quite satisfying overall. The audio was a bit bass-deficient, as is common on speakers of this sort, but our tracks were remarkably sharp and clear. What's more, the audio has a lot of warmth and was without any tinny effects. Besides the 5300, the Nokia Bluetooth Speakers MD-7W are compatible with other Nokia phones or most other handsets with a stereo Bluetooth profile. As mentioned earlier, you can use other phones with the speakers, but then you're not really getting your money's worth.

The MD-7W speakers run on four AA batteries (two in each speaker). If you're near an electrical outlet and want to save battery life, you also can power them with the included wall charger. Just be aware that the charger will not power rechargeable batteries that are in the speakers. That would be a nice, though not necessary, feature to have.

Enemy Territory: Quake Wars (Xbox 360)


Serving as the prequel to id Software's legendary Quake II, Enemy Territory: Quake Wars is the ultimate online team and objective-based experience, delivering a new depth of multiplayer action to next generation consoles. Set within the epic Quake universe in the year 2065, the game pits the Allied troops of the Global Defense Force (GDF) against a sinister new Axis – the marauding, technologically advanced Strogg - during their initial invasion of Earth.

Brand new to the console environment, gamers choose to play offline or online modes as Human or Strogg in one of five unique character classes. Employing an arsenal of weapons, vehicles and deployable armaments, players engage in an action-packed test of skill and coordinated teamwork through a series of combat objectives. Persistent character growth and achievements reward players for teamwork, while clearly defined mission and class objectives guide new players to meaningful contributions on the battlefield.

Based on the critically-acclaimed PC game developed by Splash Damage, Nerve Software and Underground have collaborated with id Software to optimize Enemy Territory: Quake Wars for the console environment (Xbox 360 and PS3), creating an intuitive experience that allows console players of every skill level to jump into a match and make a valuable contribution to the overall mission. Enemy Territory: Quake Wars brings id Software's new MegaTexture graphics technology to consoles for the first time, delivering large outdoor battlefields of unrivaled detail.

Thanks God It's Friday!

I’m done with my first week of my work in Computer lab In HCAD. And give all my powers just to fix every unit, and luckily, almost 95% of computers are working. And among the 12 system units junk by the previous in-charge, I recovered 8 of them. No works tomorrow and it means, I’m free the whole day long!

Assault Heroes 2 (Xbox 360)


Assault Heroes 2 follows the stereotypical path of the sequel to a tee. The additions read like a veritable checklist of expected upgrades--bigger levels, new vehicles, and different weapons--without implementing any drastic changes that would mess with the tried-and-true game design of the first. Not that this is necessarily a bad thing. While people sick of the seemingly endless stream of dual-stick shooters on Xbox Live Arcade still won't find anything here to change their minds, fans of the genre will be happy that developer Wanako Studios improved every aspect of the first game without sacrificing the hardcore appeal. Despite the lack of innovation, this is one of the best shooters on the service, an eminently enjoyable old-school romp. Shooting dinosaurs is always fun.

Once again, the very real threat of alien forces occupying our beloved planet rears its ugly head, and it's up to you (along with a friend) to finally vanquish these vicious imperialists. The story is summed up in a mere paragraph before the start of the first level, but that's all the motivation you need to start shooting. And you'll be doing a lot of shooting. Puzzles, exploration, and anything else that could conceivably stem the flow of bullets has been thankfully left out, leaving you to focus on using unrelenting force to save Earth.

The game excels despite the presence of any jaw-dropping new features because the core mechanics are almost flawless. Aside from a few levels late in the game, the controls are ultraprecise. It's not only possible to navigate the terrain while shooting your enemies with pinpoint accuracy, it's expected. Whereas so many games in this genre are heralding an unforgiving and oftentimes quite cheap difficulty level, AH2 doesn't resort to any trickery to kill you. The bullets stand out strongly against the background, and your maneuverability is never compromised. If you're hit, it's your fault. Even the on-foot missions--a painful thorn in the original game--have been drastically improved here. You can now roll away from attacks. This completely removes the unfair deaths from the original--where it was nigh impossible to avoid enemy fire--and makes the experience far less frustrating.

The most notable new feature is the inclusion of four unique vehicles. While you'll still control the versatile jeep for the vast majority of the game, you can now hijack other vehicles to mix up the action. Don't expect Grand Theft Auto levels of thievery here--instead of forcibly taking the vehicle of your choosing from the enemy, you are limited to unoccupied vehicles with the keys already in the ignition. Unfortunately, though these vehicles do inject a little diversity in the action, they aren't as useful as the standard jeep. The assault chopper is fast but weak, the light walker can regenerate health but is slower than frozen tar, and the medium tank is extremely powerful...but extremely sluggish as well. And though your jeep has four different mounted guns, the extra vehicles are limited to just the standard minigun (though the tank can also use its turret). They are still fun to command in brief bursts, but it's a welcome treat returning to the lovable jeep.

The only major misstep in this sequel is the fourth new vehicle: a spaceship. During certain levels, you'll have to leave your jeep on the ground while you battle enemies in space. Most of these levels are standard Assault Heroes' action that happens to take place above Earth's atmosphere. But for some inexplicable reason, the top-down view is sometimes thrown to the wayside to make way for tedious, behind-the-ship space fights. The tight controls and frustration-free fights that usually make Assault Heroes 2 so enjoyable are forgotten here. Obstacles and ships appear directly in front of you with no chance of dodging them, movement feels erratic, and blowing up enemies just isn't satisfying. This unfortunate design choice only appears in three of the 30 areas, but its taint mars an otherwise solid experience.

The new features may be small, but they do a good job nonetheless of separating the sequel from its predecessor. In addition to the all-purpose minigun, slow-but-powerful flak cannon, and infantry-melting flame thrower, you can now freeze enemies with an ice gun. This little gun actually adds a lot to the action. Though it essentially serves the same function as the flak cannon (you can freeze heavily armored vehicles with ease), it's quite fantastic to freeze flying copters and watch them fall to the earth or make infantry-flavored popsicles and shatter them with your jeep's tires. It's disappointing that only one new weapon is included in your standard arsenal, but its functionality makes up for the lack of variety.

The only other drawback in Assault Heroes 2 is a lack of options. Though you can play cooperatively either locally or across Xbox Live, you can't tinker around with any other modes. The only difference between Co-op Campaign and Co-op Zone Battle is how far you can progress. The former lets you play through the whole game, while the latter limits the experience to one section. An extra mode with a different take on the classic gameplay would have added more value to the product.

Assault Heroes 2 is a great pickup for anyone craving more top-down, co-op action. It may not push the genre to previously unheard of levels and it's a bit short on variety, but Assault Heroes 2 is still a well-designed arcade experience. And if the abrupt end to the first Assault Heroes makes you apprehensive about dropping another $10, don't worry: AH2 is a long game. With 30 areas (the first only had 17), it'll take 10 hours to play through single-player, and then you'll still be ready for another round in co-op.

Everything New

New Place, New Room (Boarding House), New Work, New laboratory, New environment, New people, New companion, Everything is New! As I start my new work, it seems everything is unfamiliar, the laboratory is small, with only 45 working PCs, the area is closed, no transparent glass walls. I remembered and missed ITRZ. But I love this work! It is so challenging for me, teaching 3rd year and 4th year high school students is the first time in life. I have pay 500 /month for my boarding house, I have to cook for my own food. As I wait for the opening of the class, I am excited at the time, nervous.

Quid Pro Quo (2008)



Public Radio investigative reporter Isaac Knott just happens to be confined to a wheel chair. In the course of doing a story about disability wanna-be's, Isaac traverses a surreal world of fetishism and transgressive eroticism that recalls the unique perspectives of Luis Bunuel and Alfred Hitchcock. In the course of Isaac's investigation, he finds Fiona--or she finds him--and she offers him a window into a dark place that exists somewhere between reality and dreams. Her life's aspiration is to be crippled, or at least perceived as such. She's beautiful and successful, yet she longs to be physically destroyed to regain some spiritual transcendence in her life. Her complexity, along with her erotic compulsions, prove irresistible to Isaac. Isaac is drawn to Fiona's dark side because somewhere in the strata of her perversion lies an underlying truth about himself. He is confined to a wheelchair because of an accident. What can he possibly learn about himself from Fiona's desire to be like him? The answer of course is everything.

Financial Needs



Yesterday I pawned my N6630 cellphone, as I promise to my mother that I will give P 2000 once I back in Davao, after two days of vacation in our place, I really feel the crisis. Due to financial needs of my family, I have to sacrifice myself; I’ll start my work on Monday and probably my first salary will on June. I really want to have a source of income for my mother, my family and also for my future. I ask some information on my co-worker about payday cash loans in our school where I currently working and she said it will be granted for me after I reach 6 months of working in this institution, actually I can have a cash advance once I start.

I know, not just my family who feel and suffered crisis today, most of the Filipino peoples today suffered economic crisis today due to the arising prices of oil, and other primary needs, particularly in rice. And most Filipinos are unemployed, I’m glad I’m not one of those.

Talking of payday cash loans, there are companies who offered this kind of services, especially the First Class Cash Advance they are here to assist you with all of your cash advance needs.

Yahoo Teams with McAfee on Secure Search

SAN FRANCISCO - Yahoo Inc. and McAfee Inc. are joining to offer alerts about potentially dangerous Web sites alongside search results generated at Yahoo.com.

With the new security feature — slated to take effect Tuesday — people who search the Internet using Yahoo will see a red exclamation point and a warning next to links McAfee has identified as serving dangerous downloads or using visitors' e-mail addresses to send out spam.

Dangerous downloads can include "adware," which shows unwanted advertisements; "spyware," which secretly tracks users' keystrokes and other actions; and other malicious programs that can give criminals control over users' computers.

Yahoo and McAfee hope the move will quell users' anxiety about accidentally clicking on malicious links.

"Yahoo users have clearly told us that among the most important concerns for them are all these lurking threats on the Internet," said Priyank Garg, director of product management for Yahoo's search division. "They know the damage they can do but they don't know how to protect themselves."

Yahoo has decided to simply nuke the worst offenders — sites that attempt "drive-by downloads," or trying to automatically install malicious code on visitors' computers by exploiting coding flaws in their Web browsers.

If McAfee has identified a site as having employed such tactics, Yahoo users won't see the link at all.

"When a user gets a set of search results, there's really no indication of who's a good guy and who's a bad guy," said Tim Dowling, vice president of McAfee's Web Security Group. "You're really leaping off a platform of faith that you're clicking on a site that's safe and not one that's bad. And the bad guys really try hard to look good."

The companies declined to reveal the financial terms of the partnership.

The deal represents the latest attempt by Sunnyvale-based Yahoo to lure more search requests, snap out of its recent financial funk and steal advertising dollars from search leader Google Inc. as it tries to justify its rebuff of Microsoft Corp.'s $47.5 billion (€30.72 billion) takeover bid.

Yahoo shares fell 15 percent Monday after Microsoft pulled out of merger talks over the weekend.

After Google, Yahoo operates the second most popular search engine among US users, with 21 percent market share compared to Google's nearly 60 percent, according to data for March, the latest available, from comScore Inc.

The deal gives Santa Clara-based McAfee a way to expose more Internet users to its security software and tempt them to upgrade to premium versions.

McAfee also benefits from teaming with Yahoo because it can use Yahoo's search data to identify sites to examine for security holes and include within its products, McAfee's Dowling said.

The McAfee technology being used on Yahoo's site is a stripped-down version of McAfee's full SiteAdvisor technology that also is available for free directly from McAfee. It uses red, yellow and green icons to label safe and harmful sites. A premium version adds other features.

Billions of sites have harmful content, and the criminal hackers behind them try relentlessly to manipulate search rankings to boost their links and ensnare more victims.

Yahoo's Garg said the company was doing experiments to identify malicious sites and bar them from search results.

But he said "security is not Yahoo's forte" and McAfee's technology gives Yahoo the breadth and depth "many orders of magnitude greater than what we had before." - AP

I Gonna Miss This Place

There's only 3 days left before I will leave this place, as I leave on Thursday, all my things were all set, some of them are already on my bag. I love being here always, my 3 long years of staying here being an student assistant, took a lot of experience. helping students for their projects, help them fixed their troubled PC, teach them some codes, ideas, everything! As my career being a student assistant ends, and facing my future as a professional, this experience will really helps me. My day by day experience here will still be in my heart. I gonna miss this place, being here for 3 years, made me become an expert IT graduate; from software and hardware troubleshooting, computer programming using various programming languages such as, VB, C++, C#,.net, coldfusion, ASP, and also for graphic designing photoshop, fireworks, and photo impact.
As I leave this place, all things I learned from here will always stays in my heart. Wherever I may be, being an SA.

Instant Teacher

Now I slowly feel what's the feeling of being a teacher, the feeling of 'love to teach'. Earlier, while doing my pending jobs, I have been called by Maam Nelia, our Program Secretary to assist the students (It is a Sunday class for SPED students ) because their teacher will be coming late and she's also coming late. It is the first session in the morning which is usually starts exactly @ 8:00 am, 1 hour and 20 minutes later still they didn't come, 35 minutes left before the first session end, maam Nelia arrived. She ask me what are the lesson I taught to the students, I was surprised and said "Ha?! n-nothing! I just let them in inside the laboratory and let them explore anything in the computer," then she said; Nald, teach them Basic Adobe Photoshop, their teacher will not come.

I check the PC and found out that there's no photoshop software installed in it. I suggested her that I will teach them making webpage instead of photoshop since it is easier for them. And then again, i found out that no dreamweaver or frontpage installed in every PC. (wtf). Last 30 minutes remaining for their session, I decided to teach them making webpage using notepad. I teach the basic tags of HTML , some basic formatting of text and background, putting images and lastly, animating texts using marquee. After they run the code, as I look their faces, they were amazed and I told them to back to notepad and put everything they for their first webpage.
I am happy for the result, as I never expected to become an instant teacher, I feel the happiness of being a teacher. Well, maybe it serves me as a dry run for my coming job. As hired as a computer teacher for private high school it really helps me a lot how to deliver, how to them. As I promise myself. I will do everything I can for my new job.

Lost Security Code Problem? Let's Solved

I have my N6630 cellphone which I lost my security code for more than 2 years, according to the Nokia Service center, if this kind of phone losses its security code, the only thing to solve it is to upgrade it or to reformat, and P560.00 is hard to find specially for the jobless professional like me. I suffer this problem for more than 2 years since it lost its security code, I can't change other SIM, I can't delete log details, and most of all, it will not accepted in all pawnshops, lol. Yesterday I tried to search the answers for this problem, and thanks God, by the help of the powerful spider of google, I've got the answers. I have the software that can identify the phone's security code. I'm so happy after installing it, after few seconds it tells what are my security code. Now I can change my old SIM, and I can use other network SIM also. I'm glad that technology is always changing, it solves day by day problem. I know I'm not the one having a problem like this, so if you want to retrieve your lost security code, just PM me.

My Blogs' Good and Bad News

Last April 29, google updates, the good news happened was, my other blog, My Music got the PR of 3/10. I never expected it got PR3, I never updated it everyday, although it reach 183 posts since I created it last February and imported my posts from my main blog, I never changed its design nor put it some widgets but still i got PR 3. The bad news is..my main blog which is updated everyday posted 2 to 3 topics everyday, with so many widgets, borloloy, but still got zero rank, since April 14 when its rank down to zero from 1, until now, still zeroooooooooo, that's why I deleted most of the paid to click widgets, I think this is the reason why. Well, I still hope this coming days, i gain back my PR, its so hard to earn money from blog when your blog has zero rank...

New 7 Wonders of Nature Update: Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park - Currently Rank 53


Good news my dear countrymen, our entry for the ongoing search for the New 7 wonders of nature, The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, also known as The Underground River is now on rank 53 from yesterday's rank 61, and last week's rank 99. It is an indication that more and more supporters who vote for our country's pride. Main while, our other entry the Tubbataha Reef is currently Rank 8 which is rank 7 from previous days. Please, let us support for our country's entries for this worldwide event.
=============================================================
The Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is located about 50 km north of the city of Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines. It features a limestone karst mountain landscape with an 8.2 km. navigable underground river. A distinguishing feature of the river is that it winds through a cave before flowing directly into the South China Sea. It includes major formations of stalactites and stalagmites, and several large chambers. The lower portion of the river is subject to tidal influences. The underground river is reputed to be the world's longest. At the mouth of the cave, a clear lagoon is framed by ancient trees growing right to the water's edge. Monkeys, large monitor lizards, and squirrels find their niche on the beach near the cave.

Upcoming Movie: Iron Man - May 2

Based on the long-running Marvel comic book series, "Iron Man" tells the story of Tony Stark, the enigmatic heir to the Stark Enterprises fortune. A driven inventor and executive who seems to have it all, Tony is haunted by his dark side. Though he commands his empire by day, by night he secretly becomes "Iron Man," the living embodiment of decades of defense spending and innovation. Strapping on billions of dollars worth of state-of-the-art armor and weaponry each night to fight crime, terrorism and corporate espionage, Tony begins to crack under the strain of his fractured lifestyle and must ultimately confront the one enemy he can never beat - himself - "Iron Man."

Son Of Rambow

"Son of Rambow" is an inventive valentine to an era where, for the first time in history, young minds had access to technology that allowed them to create their own stories while paying homage to their larger-than-life heroes from the movies that inspired them.

Will, who isn't allowed to watch TV or go to the movies, expresses himself through his drawings and illustrations until he finds himself caught up in the extraordinary world of Lee Carter, the school terror and crafter of bizarre home movies. Carter exposes Will to a pirated copy of the first Rambo film, "First Blood," which blows his mind wide open. Against his family's orders, his imaginative little brain begins to flower in the world of filmmaking. Will and Lee become popular at school through their films, but when a French exchange student, Didier Revol, arrives on the scene, their unique friendship and precious film are pushed to the breaking point.

"Son Of Rambow" writer and director Garth Jennings utilize a vast array of visual techniques to perfectly capture the moment in time when anything was possible and dreams could be recreated with a home video camera, a few props, and a ton of imagination.

The 7 Wonders of the World

I have here the collection of the New Wonders of the World taken from their official website; www.new7wonders.com
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Pyramid at Chichén Itzá (before 800 A.D.) Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico

Chichén Itzá, the most famous Mayan temple city, served as the political and economic center of the Mayan civilization. Its various structures - the pyramid of Kukulkan, the Temple of Chac Mool, the Hall of the Thousand Pillars, and the Playing Field of the Prisoners – can still be seen today and are demonstrative of an extraordinary commitment to architectural space and composition. The pyramid itself was the last, and arguably the greatest, of all Mayan temples.

The Taj Mahal (1630 A.D.) Agra, India

This immense mausoleum was built on the orders of Shah Jahan, the fifth Muslim Mogul emperor, to honor the memory of his beloved late wife. Built out of white marble and standing in formally laid-out walled gardens, the Taj Mahal is regarded as the most perfect jewel of Muslim art in India. The emperor was consequently jailed and, it is said, could then only see the Taj Mahal out of his small cell window.

Petra (9 B.C. - 40 A.D.), Jordan

On the edge of the Arabian Desert, Petra was the glittering capital of the Nabataean empire of King Aretas IV (9 B.C. to 40 A.D.). Masters of water technology, the Nabataeans provided their city with great tunnel constructions and water chambers. A theater, modelled on Greek-Roman prototypes, had space for an audience of 4,000. Today, the Palace Tombs of Petra, with the 42-meter-high Hellenistic temple facade on the El-Deir Monastery, are impressive examples of Middle Eastern culture.

Christ Redeemer (1931) Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

This statue of Jesus stands some 38 meters tall, atop the Corcovado mountain overlooking Rio de Janeiro. Designed by Brazilian Heitor da Silva Costa and created by French sculptor Paul Landowski, it is one of the world’s best-known monuments. The statue took five years to construct and was inaugurated on October 12, 1931. It has become a symbol of the city and of the warmth of the Brazilian people, who receive visitors with open arms.

The Roman Colosseum (70 - 82 A.D.) Rome, Italy

This great amphitheater in the centre of Rome was built to give favors to successful legionnaires and to celebrate the glory of the Roman Empire. Its design concept still stands to this very day, and virtually every modern sports stadium some 2,000 years later still bears the irresistible imprint of the Colosseum’s original design. Today, through films and history books, we are even more aware of the cruel fights and games that took place in this arena, all for the joy of the spectators.

The Great Wall of China (220 B.C and 1368 - 1644 A.D.) China

The Great Wall of China was built to link existing fortifications into a united defense system and better keep invading Mongol tribes out of China. It is the largest man-made monument ever to have been built and it is disputed that it is the only one visible from space. Many thousands of people must have given their lives to build this colossal construction.


Machu Picchu (1460-1470), Peru

In the 15th century, the Incan Emperor Pachacútec built a city in the clouds on the mountain known as Machu Picchu ("old mountain"). This extraordinary settlement lies halfway up the Andes Plateau, deep in the Amazon jungle and above the Urubamba River. It was probably abandoned by the Incas because of a smallpox outbreak and, after the Spanish defeated the Incan Empire, the city remained 'lost' for over three centuries. It was rediscovered by Hiram Bingham in 1911.
