General Topic / SPARE A HUG FOR TODAY’S NEANDERTHALS
« on: May 18, 2010, 12:22:41 AM »
Reg Henry
Las Vegas Revenue Journal



The recent study in the journal science that suggest some early humans mated with Neanderthals should come as a surprise to no one. Although the  Neanderthals became extinct 30000 years ago it seems the their DNA lives on in people today, evidently in some more than others.

Indeed most women today will tell you they have dated a Neanderthal at some time in their lives. They do not mean this as a compliment.

That cultural bias needs to be put aside. My inner Neanderthal pleads for understanding. It is no crime to resist change or to have a big brain but not think much. (today we have TV and talk radio and to be properly enjoyed, both demand blankness of mind.) There’s also nothing wrong with having hair all over your body, although those of us whose hair stopped short of covering our heads think it is a cruel joke that nature has played.

I have lately leant red that when I write, I grunt- some say growl- and everybody in the office knows this, even the people  nest department over partition, and nobody ever said anything about it to unknowing me. Grrrr! Sensitive to all this, I am thinking of getting a bumper sticker: “Hug a Neanderthal Today”.

As one who sits in an editorial department cave and grunts through the medium of the newspaper and Internet, it is my fate to come into contact with my other people of obvious Neanderthal ancestry who could do with a hug.

These correspondents may not like me--judging by their angry, territorial noises, many do not- but appears they recognize a shared kinship to that distant time when we were Neanderthals all, back in our limestone lairs with no government to restrict our freedom. What a wonderful  life it must have been, marred only  the attacks of wild beast and the scolding  primitive liberals.

Of course, my dear mother would not approve of me lining our family tree to that of Neanderthals. She would insist that it was all on my father’s side and want me to make that distinction clear in her honor. Dad, however, would have been amused.

A sense if humor is surely a Neanderthal trait. If you looked like they did, all hairy with brutish features, you would have developed a sense of humor, too, In order to get a date, the nights were dark back then but not so dark as to hide romantics shortcomings.

No, a young Neanderthal had to develop a joke or two if he hoped to attract one of those highfalutin Homo sapien girls always going on about how their family used superior tools and had better cave painting of elk.

Still, the scientist believe a few Neanderthals got lucky, and one can only imagine the tense scene when the girl introduced the social hairy friend to her parents. “So, son, tell me about your career. Is there a prospect of you being transferred to the main cave?” Of course, it could have been the girl who made the first advances. Since time immemorial, certain women have always had a talent for making bad choices in men, and speaking for many men, let me jus say we are very grateful.

This physical attraction isn’t as absurd as it seems, yes, the Neanderthals were not fashion plates, but they were strong and muscular. The males would lift huge boulders and move them from one side of the cave to the other then repeat the process. They didn’t think enough to ever question why they did this, but in their defense it helped fill in the time until couches, beer and sports on TV could be invented.

Interestingly, wives to this day tell their husbands to move furniture from one side of the house to the other and the husbands, following the commands of their archaic DNA, do it without comprehending why.

I worry about my fellow Neanderthals today. Our distant cousins died out because they refused to evolve intellectually. They had big heads but little thoughts. The same old tools were always good enough for them. Likewise the same old attitudes. “Fight or Flight? We fight, ooh, ooh, ooh! Flight is like cut and run.”

The ancient ones kept telling the same one or two jokes, until their mates could not stand it anymore, “If I hear the one about the mammoth who sat on the caveman just once more, you snooze outside with the saber tooths.” Now some of the modern ones say, “Did you hear that Obama thinks there are 57 states, ha ha ha!” Hug a Neanderthal today. Some of us just don’t know when are we grunting ourselves to extinction.

Introduce Yourself / Welcome to Tubag Bohol, ILOVEBOHOL
« on: May 03, 2010, 12:35:36 PM »
...and thank you for your support! Enjoy!!!

23
Here is the letter made by Wolfpack; we need your names whoever wants to support it so we could have it printed at Bohol Chronicle...you dont need to post your comments, if you want to make your comments, post it at the Letter To Guindulman Part I.

All you have to do is modify this topic and write your name. Dont be afraid to write your name, lets show to Bohol that we who are not politicians can  also make a CHANGE!


 A Letter to the Municipality of Guindulman

We, the concerned Boholanos residing in the Philippines and overseas, strongly condemn the senseless cutting of century-old acacia trees in the historic town of Guindulman, Bohol.  We strongly believe that such acts of the local officials are unforgivable.

The acacia trees are not only part of the life and culture of the people, those trees stood witness of the town’s struggles, trials and triumphs. Those trees also show-cased the cultural heritage of the municipality, therefore, the aesthetic values of those  trees cannot be at par or compromised with any development project Guindulman undertakes.

We believe that persons in authority should be held accountable for their actions. What they did is a total disregard of all environmental efforts in preserving the Mother Nature, not withstanding, the insult they inflicted to the entire generation of Guindulmanons, the Bohol population and the Philippines as a whole. It is a total gross negligence leading us to believe that the incumbent mayor and the members of Sangguniang Bayan apparently abuse their powers and authorities.

The Honorable Ma. Fe Piezas, the incumbent mayor’s defense for her irresponsible acts which is for the safety of the public is a total lie. The Pacific Consultant International  (PCI), consultants of the Bohol Circumferential Road Improvement Project (BCRIP-2) did not recommend the cutting of the trees when the national highway road was built in 2006. It was indeed illogical that the trees became a hazard three years after the Japanese environmental and structural experts deemed the trees safe and part of the scenic sights along the national highways. It is highly unacceptable that the main purpose for cutting the trees is to give a prominent view of the building claimed by the municipal administration as its major accomplishment or pet project. The damages are irreparable.

The Community Environment and Natural Resources Office who issued the special permit  is also equally liable with the local officials. No matter how sick and old those trees were, concerned officials must exhaust every possible means to save them. On this aspect, they failed us.

It is therefore, our moral obligation to see to it that the perpetrators of this ecological massacre in Guindulman will answer for what they did. The pitiful trees cannot cry or beg for mercy, but we the people can seek justice on their behalf. We should always remember that we did not inherit the environment, we borrow this from our children. More than anything else, on this particular situation, we shall see to it that justice will be served.

Moreso, we urge the Department of Environment and Natural Resources to conduct an investigation on this issue, not only in this Guinldulman case, but in all future applications to avoid repetition of committing the same grievous mistakes.

Respectfully,

 Share  Comments 9 BUFFALO, N.Y. — A 100-year-old pedophile who violated his parole by skipping sex offender classes is back behind bars in upstate New York.

Theodore Sypnier was released to a Buffalo halfway house last fall after serving 18 months in prison for the same type of parole violation. The state Parole Board announced Friday that he had been ordered to serve two more years behind bars.

Authorities say Sypnier sexually molested children as young as 4 years old for decades in Buffalo and later in the Town of Tonawanda. He was released from prison in 2008, after serving time on a 1999 conviction for molesting two young sisters.

His 58-year-old daughter says Sypnier molested her and other neighborhood girls when she was young, and pedophiles never change no matter how old they get.

Love Talk / 8 Dating Mistakes Even Smart Women Make
« on: April 19, 2010, 07:19:01 AM »
Dating Mistake #1: Being Too Available
We’re not suggesting you play games, but we are telling you to indulge your passions and resist the urge to abandon your social circle every time your new man sends an invitation. Take Sebastian, 34, from Chicago, for example: “When I was single, there were women I initially liked who seemed to be waiting by the phone for me to call, which let me know if I didn’t meet someone else I wanted to date, I had a standby. There just wasn’t anything to work for, and that turned me off,” he says. The more you engage in and enjoy your life, the more he’ll work to be a part of it.


Dating Mistake #2: Trying to Rehabilitate a Bad Boy

Ending a relationship is rarely easy, and though flying solo might not be your long-term goal, being on your own is better than feeling alone in a relationship with someone who treats you poorly. Even when it might be tempting to give a toxic romance one more try, knowing when to cut your losses and move on leaves you available and baggage-free when the right guy comes along.


Dating Mistake #3: Looking for Perfection
Encouraging you to settle isn’t our style, but separating your desires from your deal-breakers can give your love life a major upgrade. “There are some qualities that your mate must have—being honest, for example—and others, such as movie-star looks, that should be thrown in the would-be-nice category,” says Elizabeth R. Lombardo, Ph.D., author of A Happy You: Your Ultimate Prescription for Happiness. “Sit down and realistically figure out what characteristics are nonnegotiable and then be open-minded about the rest.”


Dating Mistake #4: Feeling Sorry for Yourself
Resist the urge to bemoan your single status (which will only make him wonder why you find yourself such terrible company) and use this time to date yourself. Taking a dance class at the local studio, hitting up the exhibit you have been aching to see and trying out the new wine bar on the corner will not only offer you the chance to have more fun but will also leave you more likely to meet someone who shares your interests. So much better than sitting in your apartment waiting for someone to “wink” at your online profile picture, isn’t it? Another bonus? You’ll have far more interesting things to talk about over dinner than what your boss made you do on your lunch break last Friday.



Dating Mistake #5: Knowing His Thread-Count Before You Know His Phone Number

Getting it on with a sexy stranger is your natural-born right, but according to many guys, it can be the wrong move if you’re looking for long-term love.

Follow the advice of super-sexy leading man Gilles Marini (he was Samantha’s sexy neighbor in Sex and the City: The Movie): “Men love women who respect themselves and who do not rush into bed with them but instead go on a few dates, where they can start to gain an understanding of each other and then decide whether or not to take things further. Women need to know that taking it slow and getting to know one another is the best way to get into a good relationship,” he says.


Dating Mistake #6: Being Too Selfish in Your Relationship

One of the downsides of being independent is that it can lead to some self-absorbed tendencies—a huge turnoff for men looking for a serious relationship, says Ming Gregory, a professional matchmaker at Color Blind International Dating Service. So make sure you’re giving as much as you’re receiving in your next relationship. “A partnership involves two people who share mutual interests and mutually benefit one another,” she says. “It’s not just about what being with him can provide you; it’s about how you can come together to complement each other.”



Dating Mistake #7: Believing in The One“A lot of women make dating more difficult by placing so much pressure on themselves to find the one-and-only-man-in-a-billion they believe is right for them,” says Ali, 35, from Gaithersburg, Maryland.

Instead of convincing yourself the ex you dumped was your soul mate or that perfect-but-married co-worker was your one that got away, take a cue from our male counterparts and approach the dating scene with the idea that there are plenty of men who are capable of making you laugh, sharing your values and melting your heart, and you’re going to have fun with several of them until you find one worthy of your commitment.

Dating Mistake #8: Forgetting Your Manners
We can’t imagine this is something you’d ever do, but a little reminder never hurts: Say thank you.

“Good manners have become so old-fashioned that men now wait for the thank-you at the end of the date as a way to see if she’s worth seeing again,” says Brian, 30, from New York City. “I don’t care if the woman looks like Kate Beckinsale and has a Ph.D.; if she can’t be bothered to utter those two little words, I am never calling her again.”

Health and Food / 8 Old Wives Tales: Which Should You Believe?
« on: April 06, 2010, 10:26:35 AM »
Just like your mom didn't need a thermometer to know if you had a fever, we bet your grandmother or other homegrown expert didn’t let the lack of a medical degree stop her from issuing health directives. But which of them are worth following?



1. Grandma's wisdom: Ginger is good for upset stomachs.
Science says: Yes. Good evidence shows ginger reduces nausea.

2. Grandma's wisdom: An apple a day keeps the doctor away.
Science says: Granny's overstating this fruit's potency. Still, the peel is a good source of quercetin, an important antioxidant that, studies suggest, helps lower blood pressure, fight asthma and allergies, and prevent heart attacks.

3. Grandma's wisdom: Honey speeds healing.
Science says: Yes. Mild to moderate burns (but not other types of wounds) heal faster if you spread honey on them -- maybe because it creates a moist, antibacterial environment that promotes tissue growth.


4. Grandma's wisdom: Put butter on a burn.

Science says: No. There's no evidence of a benefit from butter.

5. Grandma's wisdom: Sleeping in air-conditioning can give you a chill.
Science says: She may be onto something. Air conditioners dry out the protective layer of mucus along nasal passages, which likely allows viruses to infect you more easily. Viruses reproduce faster inside a cold nose too.

6. Grandma's wisdom: If you go out with wet hair, you'll catch a cold.
Science says: Maybe. Some research indicates (but doesn't prove) that a wet head helps cold viruses take hold, by tightening blood vessels in the nose and making it harder for white blood cells to reach the viruses and fight them off.



7. Grandma's wisdom: Swimming after eating can lead to cramps and drowning.

Science says: Not exactly, but not completely wrong either. After you eat, blood gets shunted to your digestive tract and away from exercising muscles. That can lead to a buildup of lactic acid in your muscles, so swimming a few laps too soon after lunch could cause a sudden (though not fatal) cramp.

8. Grandma's wisdom: Chocolate gives you pimples.
Science says: Not quite. Chocolate bars might trigger an acne flare-up, but if so, the culprit is probably the sugar, milk, and gooey fillings, not the cocoa.

« on: April 05, 2010, 09:34:53 AM »
ORIGINAL POST FROM GINTONIC


A.   What were the accomplishments of Edgar Chatto while serving as Vice Governor of Bohol between 1995 – 2001 (6 years of service)
Various Significant Local Legislative Contributions and Projects: (taken from the BioData of Atty. Edgar Chatto)

a.   the MADAC (municipal),

c.   BADAC (barangay)
2.   Authored and published the “KATARUNGANG PAMBARANGAY SIMPLIFIED HANDBOOK” distributed and used by the Lupon Members in the barangays

9.   Legislated the PROVINCIAL REVENUE CODE
10.   Legislative the ADMINISTRATIVE CODE
11.   Legislated the BOHOL ENVIRONMENT CODE which is the Model Environment Code of numerous provinces and cities in the Philippines today
12.   Established the BOHOL ENVIRONMENT MANAGEMENT OFFICE (BEMO)
13.   Created the SPECIAL PROJECTS UNIT (SPU), a legislative research arm of the SANGGUNIANG PANLALAWIGAN

20.   MOST OUTSTANDING VICE GOVERNOR, (1997)
21.   Awardee of the NATIONAL CENTENNIAL LINGKOD BAYAN FOR OUTSTANDING WORK PERFORMANCE BY THE CIVIL SERVICE COMMISSION (CSC), 2000 and received the salary equivalent to that of a GOVERNOR while serving as Vice Governor of the Province


B.   What are the accomplishments of Julius Herrera while serving as Vice Governor of Bohol between 2001 -2010 (9 years of service)
Legislations and Projects (taken from the Website of juliusherrera.com)
1.   Established a Secretariat for each SP Committee
2.   Training on Barangay Legislation (TBL)
3.   Agriculture: Distribution of Seeds and Seedlings:
a.   Utanon Alang sa Mahimsog nga Bol-anon, Distribution of Vegetable Seeds,

c.   Rice Seeds Assistance, Distribution of Certified Rice Seeds
4.   Distribution of Barangay Tanod kits
5.   Distribution of BHW kits
6.   Overseas Workers Helpline, Assistance of OFWs, Libreng Tawag sa Middle East Program



Comments:
1.   So, who best served as Vice Governor of Bohol?  Facts don’t lie.  Notice that most of the projects Herrera did in his term were copied from  Chatto’s time, such as:
a.   Distribution of Kits to BALA
b.   Distribution of Kits to the OFWs
c.   OFW Assistance Desk
d.   Training on Barangay Legislation copied from Chatto’s Katarungang Pambarangay Institutional Capacity Program
2.   Chatto had 21 accomplishments in only 6 years as Vice Governor, while Herrera has only 6 while serving for 9 years.
3.   So, who is a better leader for Bohol?
4.   You can not become a “good leader” by simply claiming that you are.  Your track record will speak for you and other people will say it to the public.  Chatto’s track record of accomplishments and Awards even as Vice Governor and now as Congressman will speak for himself that he is a “good leader” able to become the next Governor of Bohol which the people will elect on May 10.
5. DI BA LAIN?


Gintonic would you refrain posting this in all the political thread??? i will remove it right away or you cant log in anymore.

Florida urologist Jack Cassell posted a sign on his office door reading, "If you voted for Obama ... seek urologic care elsewhere. Changes to your health care begin right now, not in four years."

Cassell, a registered Republican, quickly backpedaled in an interview with the Orlando Sentinel, but said he's perfectly happy to lose business over the sign. "I'm not turning anybody away, that would be unethical," he told the Sentinel. "But if they read the sign and turn the other way, so be it."

Patients who continue past the sign on Cassell's door find a waiting room stacked with Republican pamphlets opposing health care reform, underneath a sign reading, "This is what the morons in Washington have done to your health care. Take one, read it and vote out anyone who voted for it."

Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) told the Sentinel he was "disgusted" by Cassell's behavior.

"Maybe he thinks the Hippocratic Oath says, 'Do no good'," Grayson said. "If this is the face of the right wing in America, it's the face of cruelty. ... Why don't they change the name of the Republican Party to the Sore Loser Party?"
