Niagara falls

There are many water falls in the world and one of the most popular is Niagara falls located right on the border between Canada and America.  Both surrounded by twin cities, Niagara Falls, Ontario and Niagara Falls New York.  Declared to be a favorite and famous tourist attraction in the world and honeymoon destination.  Geologist believed that the falls formed through erosion from Niagara River, exposed old marine rocks from many years ago including melted glaciers.  It has three separate waterfalls the Horseshoe Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and American falls.  Six million cubic feet of water spill over the falls every minute, majority coming from Horseshoe Falls.  Water falls from high up to 170 ft.

Tinuy-an Falls

In the Philippines there are also known waterfalls.  One is the Tinuy-and falls, in fact it was advertised as Niagara Falls in the Philippines.  It is the main tourist attraction in the Booming city by the bay, Bislig city, Surigao Del Sur.  Tinuy-an falls is one of the best waterfalls in the Philippines just like Niagara Falls the water also flows from three different levels.  It is 55 meters or 180 ft high 95meters wide.  Rainbow is known to appear every morning from 9:0o am to 11:00 am.

Nice falls isn’t it? I’ve never been to this place although I have seen most of it on TV and ads. I am hoping to get there anytime soon.  The water seems so cool and clean.  I always like rainbow too ever since, it is nice to look at and soothing to the eyes…there is a feeling of relief every time i see a rainbow. I guess it would be a different feeling watching rainbow in a cool morning beside a waterfalls.

Live Life To The Fullest: Eat Less Sugar

Sugar is used to add sweetness to foods or drinks. We love sweets even if we don’t have sweet tooth.  But, too much sugar is bad for our health.

How much sugar should I consume each day?  There are three different types of carbohydrate: fiber, starch and sugar.  According to experts there is no required consumption for sugar but there is a minimum needed carbohydrate in our body which is 130 grams each day for male and female including adults and children.  But majority consumed more than the minimum requirement.

Sugar has a stimulating taste and too much intake of it promotes overeating.  Too much calorie intake (calorie comes from eating food high in sugar content) may lead to diabetes, obesity which may cause health risk and other problems like heart disease and certain types of cancer mainly pancreatic cancer.

However, everything can be eaten moderately.  There are also available alternatives for sugar in your diet.  The naturally occurring sugars from fruits and vegetables also are a great source of carbohydrate and enough to meet the needed carbohydrate supply in the body.  Don’t starve yourself by not eating anymore your favorite goodies.   If you always love coffee, brew your morning coffee with a cinnamon stick which can be found in groceries and supermarkets.  For pancakes, waffles and oatmeal you can add fresh fruit or fruit purees.  On your favorite baked foods like cakes, cookies and macaroons try with a little less of the sweet stuff by cutting the amount of sugar.

As usual it’s all about balance.  Inspire yourself to reach your health goals.  Choose the right food and exercise regularly. Everyday is a great day to live life to the fullest!

Beware of them.   Here are some tips to know if those websites are scam sites.

Search about the website preferably in Google. Type the website domain name and space then the word scam example:  “money.com scam fraud”, you will know immediately the site’s activities.  Check if the site runs an active forum where issues related to site’s activities are discussed.  You will get an idea from the forum itself based on experiences of members.  Another tip to detect if the site is scam is to know if they run an active support system.  If you find one try to ask questions and inquiries and see if they respond quickly.  You will know if it is a scam if they don’t respond to support ticket submitted.  When making a payment on any form be sure the website starts with https://” and not http:// and has a security certificate.

Lastly, go to website “siteadvisor.com” provided by MacAfee. Paste the website address ex.

Helping Others realized The Benefits of Dark Chocolates

Chocolates is very popular and a favorite present especially for lovers and soon to be sweethearts. When we mentioned chocolate first thing that comes in mind is it is “sweet” and should be eaten moderately because it contains high calorie and a high fat food.  Although some fat in dark chocolate don’t have bearing in your cholesterol.  I love chocolates in fact I have my own favorites, but I go for Dark chocolates. Dark chocolate is a chocolate without milk solids and this kind of chocolate is susceptible to dry, it has chalky texture and has both sweet and bitter taste.  The key ingredients in dark chocolate are cacao beans, sugar and lecithin, this components help to retain its quality.  Dark chocolates can be classified according to their cocoa solid content in a bar.  Usually commercial dark chocolate bars contains 30%, 70% and 75%% respectively or 80% above for extremely dark chocolates.  It is also known as bittersweet chocolate, semi-sweet chocolate and sweet dark chocolate.

Eating a small bar of dark chocolate everyday can help keep your heart running well.  It can reduce blood pressure and lower cholesterol as well.   If you eat half bar of dark chocolate in a day you must refrain from eating other sweets, instead, eat less of something else to maintain your calorie.  You should know that chocolates have 300 compounds and chemicals in every bite so, better take time and enjoy the taste.  It has higher antioxidants compared to milk chocolates. When buying dark chocolate choose pure dark chocolates or with nuts, orange peel and other flavorings except with caramel, nougat etc. they just added sugar and fat in it.  Avoid milk after eating dark chocolate for it will prevent the proper absorption of antioxidants in your body.

What You Need To Know About Facebook

Filed under: Social Media — analuz @ 4:18 PM

People now have greater access to the internet.  Besides, Social networking is growing and gaining more popularity among users.  Instead of sending text messages they turn to this channel to send greetings to their loved ones, friends, and families here and abroad.  Why people are using Facebook?  I guess people might just want to have their own place to upload photos so that they can share it with their friends.   Might want to open a business and use it as their online store. For politically motivated person they use Facebook to spark interest in their bids for election.  Some would like to speak with others who share their interest. No matter what the reasons maybe with its growing popularity and usage no wonder Facebook has become one of the top among Social Networking sites today.  Users take advantage of the phenomenal growth of this technology and you seem to be out of this world if you don’t have an FB account.

FB was founded in 2004 by Mark Zuckerberg together with his fellow computer science students and college roommates.  It is a Social network service to help people grasp what’s going on in their world.  Likewise, the author also wanted to create an environment where people could share information but, also have control over such information they shared.  I am pretty sure all of us have notice the Privacy settings as one of the features in Facebook.  In this feature, you have the option of whom to share your information with. It’s very clear, right? But some users missed this point. Undeniably, there are crimes and tragedy linking to Facebook. Some were even attacked by harsh and degrading statements. We should be careful in what information we share and invite as friends in order to avoid circumstances that would harm us.

There’s nothing wrong with Facebook in fact I find it useful… let’s just be careful. For people who are planning to have FB account, setting a Facebook is easy.   You just need to have an email address and of course a password.   Always remember never ever share your password to anyone. Welcome to Facebook!
