francis_magalonaThe Philippine showbiz industry was surprised by the passing of one of its institutions, Master Rapper Francis Magalona. Also known as Kiko, Francis suffered from complications of leukemia and was suppose to undergo marrow transplant from her donating sister. The actor’s death was announced at Eat Bulaga where he is a mainstay host. Kiko was 44 and turning 45 this October 4. He left 8 kids (2 being step-kids) to her courageous wife Pia Arroyo-Magalona whom he met and married in 1985 through his friend Richard Gomez. They met in a disco house owned by the late film director Ishmael Bernal.

Kiko was a loyal man to his career and family as well. Unlike most of his batch mates and friends in the industry who have gone through broken marriages, he and his wife Pia had surpassed them all. His death was really unexpected but his family showed strong and intact in this hard time. A close friend and showbiz buddy, Vice-Mayor to Quezon City Herbert Bautista vowed to take care of the late master rapper kids until needed. Herbert is himself remained single all this time and this act is indeed humbling and stunning. All other friends and close showbiz buds extended help and aid in any way possible to Kiko’s bereaved family.

The late master rapper will continue to be an inspiration to the Filipino youth. In his time, he contributed so much to the industry. Some of which were:

Obama InaugurationThe newly sworn 44th President of the United States dances his first of the seven during the Neighborhood Ball with wife, Michelle. They danced sweetly in the tune of ‘At Last’ performed by Beyonce off-stage. The President is in white tie while the first lady graces a one-shoulder, floor-length shimmering white gown by New York designer Jason Wu. You could tell by the way they doted on each other how affectionate they are and what kind of unison they have. This ball they are attending is just one of the ten they pledge to go.
Obama Inauguration Home States Ball
The President, before started dancing, had even asked the celebrity and supporter attendeed how good his wife looks. That was typically Obama, always showing affection publicly to his wife by words or by action. There was even a time when he pulled the first lady closer, wrapped her with his arms, and locked his fingers together at the small of her back. At that time, it seems to the audience that they are violating some intimate moment but decided it was a lovely sight. A moment later, the President cut loose to Stevie Wonder’s ‘Sign, Sealed, Delivered’, a song played in the two years of his campaign across the USA. This song was performed by Shakira, Mary J. Blige, Faith Hill, and Mariah Carey together with its real performer.

All these are happening while at the Commander in Chief Ball, Vice President Joe Biden is saluting the nation’s men and women in the army. He addressed all those present in the ball that he is not looking forward for his moment in the spotlight. What he meant is that he is not dreaming of standing in the dance floor for a minute of dancing with all the people’s eye riveted on him and his wife.

Here are the top 10 phones for 2008 to 2010!
1 . Nokia 888 Communicator
Nokia definitely has the most interesting concept phones. Nokia 888 Communicator is a striking futuristic concept phone. The phone, which uses liquid batteries, speech recognition, flexible touchscreen and touch-sensitive body cover,is designed by Tamer Nakisci and won the Nokia Design Award

——————————————————————————–
2 . Nokia Aeon
Nokia Aeon was presented by Nokia on their website in the Research & Development section. What is so great about this phone is that it looks like it will actually go into production next February. Of course, its just a rumor, but still, makes us hope to actually see it someday in the GSM shop. All we know about it for now is that its a touchscreen phone and it looks fantastic.

——————————————————————————–
3 . Sky “Sleak n Slim”
“Sleek & Slim” from SKY is another concept based on touchscreen technology. The phone has a discretely glowing touchpad, hideaway keys and generally utterly-fashionable minimalist design.

——————————————————————————–
4 . Benq-Siemes “Snaked”
Benq designers thought of women too and presented Snaked. This is a “reptile” looking phone, creepy somehow, but still is very cool. The Snaked is a fashion phone for sport loving women, because it also has body monitoring sensors to help the ladies keep those fine shapes.

——————————————————————————–
5 . What You See is What You Get Concept
One thing is for sure about this concept phone they could’ve named it shorter. Designed by Pei-Hua Hang, the phone’s name comes from the fact that this concept no longer uses an LCD as viewfinder for the digital camera, instead it uses a transparent frame. And of course, interaction is made through a touchscreen

——————————————————————————–
6 . Retroxis By Dark Label
If most phones presented here will never be sold in store for sure, the Retroxis concept phone from Dark Label looks kinda human, and makes us hope we’ll be able to get one of these one day. Designed by Lim Sze Tat the phone is encased in high polished polycarbonate renowned for its lightweight and toughness and has an invisible OLED display that silently hides away when inactive.

——————————————————————————–
7 . Benq-Siemens “The Blackbox”
Black Box designed by Benq-Siemens uses a touch screen as its keypad and, depending on the fun ctions you are using, the touch screen changes the control layout immediately.

——————————————————————————–
8 . NEC Tag
Somehow similar to the Snaked concept, the NEC Tag is a flexible phone concept that can be , for example, hung from a belt or wrapped around the user’s arm. Interesting is that the phone has shape-memorizing material and sensors that allows the phone to change its shape according to the mode.

——————————————————————————–
9 . TripleWatch
Though the idea of a cellphone watch is not so new, the TripleWatch designed by Manon Maneenawa has an interesting triple flip technique that allows the user to transform the watch into a normal cellphone. When used as a wrist watch, the phone has a speaker button that allows the user to answer the phone and hang up while driving.

I have once seen a table about human organs and their function timing, which I have also posted in colourblind. I think this table is far better than that and I posted it in here because I believe that there are more readers who need to know about these facts. I really hope this will us all.

I am! Finally, WordPress gave me back the freedom to use my site after a month! Well, it was all my fault, I was supposed to follow the guidelines in publishing posts. But anyway, the good thing is that I already have my blog back. Now, I can again write and publish directly and without the ‘reviewing’ panel on my page. That was a real trouble! Imagine, I will write a post and after that, I cannot publish it directly! Instead of the publish button, a ‘review’ button is in place and I have to go through that. I really thought, I will forever lose this blog.

I just get it back and thanks to the many customer service people who patiently replied and helped me get my blog back. I cannot remember everyone but ANTHONY was the last one who made a suggestion and comment on how I can earn my blog back. Thank you, really! I hope you will continue helping other bloggers like me… THanks, thanks!

Early this morning, I woke up and immediately check my emails. And I didnt find what I was expect- the wordpress answer to my support issue. Late yesterday, my blog becomes inactive and that made me feel like–OMG! I really liked this domain and blog site and I hope that they wont terminate my account! So what I did was, I logged on to wordpress and to my account then click the support/ help button.Once again, i entered everything that is needed and send it to the administration. Well, good thing! They replied promptly!

I really do not want this account to go just like that. I think I want to host a domain but not this early, maybe later. I think I made the mistake of posting some paid posts on it, but I am willing to take it all off. I just cannot do it all at once so I am hoping that the admin will not just terminate it. Just give me some time please, and I am sure I will be able to take off all the paid posts.

Gee, I am to thank you of course should you let me have time for this issue. And please, once again, please do not terminate my account. I only need time to do whatever is needed to do.. Pleasee, pleaasseee, pleeaassseeee….
