To Upcoming Law Students ...

.
0 comments

Hello prospective law students. As I stand before this group today, you and I have something in common. We have all made a poor life decision, the decision to attend law school. But unlike you, I, as a 3L, am too close to the end to rectify my situation, but you all are not. Come Monday, you will step foot into this building and you will officially become a law student. If I were you, I would do some heavy soul searching this weekend and decide if you really want to do that. Take it from me, you do not.

But if you must see for yourself, I suggest you just come to class for two weeks and see how you like it. You can still get a full tuition refund after two weeks. Treat those two weeks as a test drive. You can do the reading for classes if you want, but I wouldn't recommend it. If you are called on, just tell the professor you are taking a test drive. After all, no one expects you to put gas in a car during a test drive. But give it two weeks, and if you really want to be here...well, don't say I didn't warn you.

I know some of you are scoffing at me right now. You see a big firm in your future, with a six-figure salary and a comfortable lifestyle. But ask yourself, do you really want it? Sure, the money is great, but do you really want to put in 80+ hours weeks of high stress legal work? Do you want to develop an ulcer and a drinking problem? Do you want to cheat on your loving significant other with a skanky paralegal because you are in such need of validation, her menthol and perfume odor is as sweet as a bed of roses? Because the life of a big firm associate is not easy. You won't have time to enjoy that big salary because you will spend all your time at the office. Your senses will be numbed by endless hours toiling in front of law books. You will become so devoid of feeling that you will have to resort to hardcore S&M just to get sexual gratification, because that will be the only way you can even feel anymore.

And if you are one of the "lucky" ones to make it as a partner, are you prepared for that? Are your prepared to go thorough a messy divorce from your formerly loving significant other, and lose most of the stuff you accumulated through your endless toil as an associate? Are you prepared to become a souless bastard who's life revolves around arcane statutes and pain and suffering of others? Are you prepared to look at your daughter's face after you missed her piano recital because "Daddy had to file for another continuance, because Daddy is trying to get as much money from the client as he can before the client realizes he has no case"? Are you prepared to live an isolated existence, so consumed by your own greed and desire that you end up dying alone and miserable? And when you die, are you prepared to be dragged to hell by creepy little ghouls, like in the movie Ghost, when the bad guy got impaled by that giant shard of glass?

If you can answer yes to all of these questions, you will do just fine. Thank you, and best of luck with law school.

Story of a Fatherless Daughter :((

.
0 comments

Excerpted from my entry to Mommy Fleur's Father's day Promo ..

So where do I begin... It's actually gonna be another FATHERLESS DAY FOR ME so at first I was hesitant to join here coz this PROMO requires a touching Father and Daughter moment . But here I am ... trying :)) It's been 20 years since my Dad left us and I'm 20 now. You got it! I've never seen my dad since I was a child (what a cry baby) I don't know the reason why he left us. I always ask my Mom but I always leave her speechless. It has been my dream to meet my Dad and I told myself, I'm going to look for him the moment I graduated high school and show him all my achievements! (bet, he's gonna be really proud of me) I finished high school and now College and still no father with me. I thought I can use the power of technology that we have nowadays but I was wrong! Well, there was an incident wherein I looked for his name "Joel Feliciano" on Facebook last year and voila ! There was a match not only that we have common friends on FB and he's been to lived in Tatalon !!! He must be the one ! I added him .. He accepted my request and right there and then I took all the chance to break the ice. I open the chat box.. there's his name! so, I typed some words .. He replied and we got comfortable with each other I then popped some unexpected questions.

Me: Tumira po kayo sa Tatalon di ba?
Him: Ah Oo
Me: My kilala po kayong Cora? Cora Dela Cruz po
Him: Si ate Cora yung matarey?
Me: Sya nga po.
Him: Bihira ko lang syang makita kasi nta masungit yun eh

(Bihira pero nakabuo kayo ng bata)

Me: Hmmm... Mama ko po kasi sya.
Him: Ay ganun! Pasensya na sa pagdedescribe ko.. Pero masungit tlaga sya di ba?
Me: Opo .. hndi mapagkakaila

......

Him: di ka na nagreply? Bat mo nga pla ko natanong?
Me: (My heart was pounding) Alam nyo po, hndi ko po kasi nakikita tatay ko mula pagkabata eh.. Nung tinanong ko po c mama kung ano pangalan ng tatay ko sabi nya Joel Feliciano daw po. Hinanap ko po sa FB tapos nag-appear kayo .. may mga common friends din po tayo at tumira kayo sa Tatalon kaya inisip ko ... Kayo po siguro tatay ko :'( Pareho pa tayong singkit..

.....................

Me: Kayo po ba ang tatay ko?
Him: Imposible... Sabi mo 20 kna db? Eh 36 plang ako eh saka hndi ko tlaga nakasama mama mo , nkakasalubong lang pero hndi kami magkakilalang talaga.. Bka naman kapangalan ko lang?
Me: (Bumabaha ng ng luha sa eksenang ito) Hndi ko po guguluhin pamilya nyo... Gusto ko lang po mabuo pagkatao ko. Kapangalan? Lahat po tumutugma sa inyo pano nangyari un? Jr. po ba kau ? Baka yung tatay nyo (Sr.) ang tatay ko? (At nakuha ko pang mag-joke)
Him: Imposible tlaga...
Me: Hndi ko po kayo pipilitin pero nakakaiyak lang pong isipin kc nagexpect ako na ito na.. ito na ung buong buhay kong hinihintay na chance... hndi pla :'(((
Him: Ang ganda ganda mo para maging anak ko.. cguro pag nagkita kayo ng tatay mo magsisisi sya at iniwan ka. Mag-aral kang mabuti at wag kang sumuko na hanapin tatay mo ha!
Me: Salamat po.. Nakakahiya naman tong ginawa ko. Pasensya na po kayo sa abala ah .. baka mamaya makasira pa ko ng pamilya... sorry po ulit...

** Hindi ko alam kung ayaw nya lang ba tlaga akong akuin kc nga may pamilya na sya o biktima lang sya kc ibang pangalan binigay ni mama... pinakita ko kay mama ung mga pictures nya sa FB .. sabi nya hndi daw un tatay ko kc kamukha daw nun c Lito Lapid. Ang lupit maglaro ng pagkakataon noh? Parang nung time na yun pakiramdam ko pinaglalaruan ng mundo ung nararamdaman ko.

Marami pa kong madramang nobela .. Pag nagkita tayo, isshare ko sayo ang kabuuan. Pprintsceen ko rin ung conversation namin sa FB :)) (Inassume ko na tlaga na ako mapipili eh no) By the way, I always read your blog and I'm planning to send a picture of my cute niece to join your "This kid is it"

Poem From a Fatherless Daughter

.
0 comments



When Fathers Day comes around
I just stare at the ground
While everyone talks about their Dads
I begin to wish I had
A chance to join their conversation
But I have no reason to celebrate this occasion,
Not because I don’t have a dad
But because you wish you never had
That night when you met my mom
And soon had a little-one
You denied me every chance you had,
Saying that the women was mad,
Now 20 years later
You have become nothing but a sperm donator,
With several different kids,
Who of course are said to be not his,
But not so lucky for you,
You were proved wrong,
And this is why I say my tone sing-song
Thanks for making time in your busy life
To drag me and my siblings
Around not even over night,
You sit and talk on your phone
Anticipating the time we go home;
So here is your “Fathers” day card,
Complete with a poem
To appreciate how you have worked so hard…
oh wait, it says to dad, sorry
But anyone can be a father,
But it takes a special person to be a dad…..
and your qualifications are a little too bad.

LIFE WITHOUT FATHER

.
0 comments



Excerpted from the book, Life Without Father by David Popenoe

Growing up without a father may be a root cause of many social ills—from crime to academic failure.
The decline of fatherhood is one of the most basic, unexpected and extraordinary trends of our time. Its dimensions can be captured in a single statistic: In just three decades, between 1960 and 1990, the percentage of children living apart from their biological fathers more than doubled, from 17 percent to 36 percent. By the turn of the century, nearly 50 percent of American children may be going to sleep each evening without being able to say good night to their dads.
No one predicted this trend; few researchers or government agencies have monitored it; and it is not widely discussed, even today. But the decline of fatherhood is a major force behind many of the most disturbing problems that plague American society: crime; premature sexuality and out-of-wedlock births to teenagers; deteriorating educational achievement; depression, substance abuse and alienation among adolescents; and the growing number of women and children in poverty.
Even as this calamity unfolds, our cultural view of fatherhood, itself, is changing. Few people doubt the fundamental importance of mothers. But fathers? More and more, the question of whether fathers are really necessary is being raised. Many would answer no, or maybe not. And to the degree that fathers are still thought necessary, fatherhood is said by many to be merely a social role that others can play: mothers, partners, stepfathers, uncles and aunts, grandparents. Perhaps the script can even be rewritten and the role changed—or dropped.
There was a time in the past when fatherlessness was far more common than it is today, but death was to blame, not divorce, desertion and out-of-wedlock births. Almost all of today's fatherless children have fathers who are alive, well, and perfectly capable of shouldering the responsibilities of fatherhood. Who would ever have thought that so many men would choose to relinquish them. Not so long ago, the change in the cause of fatherlessness was dismissed as irrelevant in many quarters, including among social scientists. Children, it was said, are merely losing their parents in a different way than they used to. You don't hear that very much anymore. A surprising finding of recent social science research is that it is decidedly worse for a child to lose a father in the modern, voluntary way than through death. The children of divorced and never-married mothers are less successful in life by almost every measure than the children of widowed mothers. The replacement of death by divorce as the prime Cause of fatherlessness, then is a monumental setback in the history of childhood.
Until the 1960s, the falling death rate and the rising divorce rate neutralized each other. In 1900, the percentage of all American children living in single-parent families was 8.5 percent. By 1960, it had increased to just 9.1 percent.
But then the decline in the death rate slowed, and the divorce rate skyrocketed. "The scale of marital breakdowns in the West since 1960 has no historical precedent that I know of, and seems unique," says Lawrence Stone, the noted Princeton University family historian. "There has been nothing like it for the last 2,000 years, and probably longer."
Consider what has happened to children. Most estimates are that only about 50 percent of the children born during the 1970 84 "baby bust" period will still live with their natural parents by age 17—a staggering drop from nearly 80 percent.
In theory, divorce need not mean disconnection. In reality, it often does. One large survey in the late 1980s found that about one in five divorced fathers had not seen his children in the past year, and less than half of divorced fathers saw their children more than several times a year. A 1981 survey of adolescents who were living apart from their fathers found that 52 percent had not seen them at all in more than a year; only 16 percent saw their fathers as often as once a week.
The picture grows worse. Just as divorce has overtaken death as the leading cause of fatherlessness, out-of-wedlock births are expected to surpass divorce later in the 1990s.
Across time and cultures, fathers have always been considered essential—and not just for their sperm. Marriage and the nuclear family— mother, father and children—are the most universal social institutions in existence. In no society has the birth of children out of wedlock been the cultures norm. To the contrary, a concern for the legitimacy of children is nearly universal.
At the same time, being a father is universally problematic for men. While mothers the world over bear and nurture their young with an intrinsic acknowledgment and, most commonly, acceptance of their role the process of taking on the role of father is often filled with conflict and doubt.
The source of this sex-role difference can be plainly stated. Men are not biologically as attuned to being committed fathers as women are to being committed mothers. The evolutionary logic is clear. Women, who can bear only a limited number of children, have a great incentive to invest their energy in rearing children, while men, who can father many offspring, do not. Left culturally unregulated, men's sexual behavior can be promiscuous, their paternity casual, their commitment to families weak.
This is not to say that the role of father is foreign to male nature. Far from it. Evolutionary scientists tell us that the development of the fathering capacity and high paternal investments in offspring—features not common among our primate relatives—have been sources of enormous evolutionary advantage for human beings.
In recognition of the fatherhood problem, human cultures have used sanctions to bind men to their children, and of course the institution of marriage has been culture's chief vehicle.
In my many years as a sociologist I have found few other bodies of evidence that lean so much in one direction as this one: On the whole two parents—a father and a mother—are better for a child than one parent. There are, to be sure, many factors that complicate this simple proposition. We all know of a two-parent family that is truly dysfunctional—the proverbial family from hell. A child can certainly be raised to a fulfilling adulthood by one loving parent who is wholly devoted to the child's well-being. But such exceptions do not invalidate the rule.
The collapse of children's well being in the United States has reached breathtaking proportions. Juvenile violent crime has increased sixfold, from 16,000 arrests in 1960 to 96,000 in 1992. Eating disorders and rates of depression have soared among adolescent girls.
Teen suicide has tripled. Alcohol and drug abuse among teen-agers, although it has leveled off in recent years, continues at a very high rate. Poverty has shifted from the elderly to the young.
One can think of many explanations for these unhappy developments: the growth of commercialism and consumerism, the influence of television and the mass media, the decline of religion, the widespread availability of guns and addictive drugs, and the decay of social order and neighborhood relationships. None of these causes should be dismissed. But the evidence is now strong that the absence of fathers from the lives of children is one of the most important causes.
The most tangible and immediate consequence of fatherlessness for children is the loss of economic resources. By the best recent estimates, the income of the household in which a child remains after a divorce instantly declines by about 21 percent per capita on average, while expenses tend to go up.
What do fathers do? Much of what they contribute to the growth of their children, of course, is simply the result of being a second adult in the home. Bringing up children is demanding, stressful and often exhausting. Two adults cannot only support and spell each other-they can offset each other's deficiencies and build on each others strengths.
Recent research has given us much deeper—and more surprising—insights into the father's role in child rearing. It shows that in almost all of their interactions with children, fathers do things a little differently from mothers. What fathers do—their special parenting style—is not only highly complementary to what mothers do but is by all indications important in its own right for optimum child rearing.
For example, an often-overlooked dimension of fathering is play. From their children's birth through adolescence, fathers tend to emphasize play more than caretaking. The father's style of play seems to have unusual significance. It is likely to be both physically stimulating and exciting. With older children it involves more physical games and teamwork requiring the competitive testing of physical and mental skills.
Mothers tend to spend more time playing with their children, but theirs is a different kind of play. Mothers' play tends to take place more at the child's level. Mothers provide the child with the opportunity to direct the play, to be in charge, to proceed at the child's own pace.
At play and in other realms fathers tend to stress competition challenge, initiative, risk-taking and independence.
Mothers, as caretakers, stress emotional security and personal safety. Becoming a mature and competent adult involves the integration of two often-contradictory human desires: for communion, or the feeling of being included, connected, and related, and for agency, which entails independence, individuality, and self-fulfillment. One without the other is a denuded and impaired humanity, an incomplete realization of human potential.
Just as cultural forms can be discarded, dismantled and declared obsolete, so can they be reinvented. In order to restore marriage and reinstate fathers in the lives of their children, we are somehow going to have to undo he cultural shift of the past few decades toward radical individualism.
Marriage must be re-established as a strong social institution. The father's role must also be redefined in a way that neglects neither historical models nor the unique attributes of modern societies, the new roles for women, and the special qualities that men bring to child rearing.
AT RISK
Many people believe that fatherlessness is related to delinquency and violence, and the weight of research evidence supports this belief.
Having a father at home is no guarantee that a youngster won't commit a crime, but it appears to be an excellent form of prevention.
Research shows that:
• 60 percent of America's rapists came from fatherless homes.
• 72 percent of adolescent murderers grew up without a father.
• 70 percent of long-term prison inmates are fatherless.

Chasing Pavements

.
0 comments




I've made up my mind
Don't need to think it over
If I'm wrong I am right
Don't need to look no further,
This ain't lustI know this is love
But, if I tell the worldI'll never say enough
'cause it was not said to you
And that's exactly what I need to doIf I end up with you

[Chorus]
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasin' pavements?
Even if it leads nowhere
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place
Should I leave it there
Should I give up,
Or should I just keep chasin' pavements
Even if it leads nowhere

I build myself up
And fly around in circles
Waitin' as my heart drops
And my back begins to tingle
Finally, could this be it

[Chorus]
Or should I give up
Or should I just keep chasin' pavements
Even if it leads nowhere
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place
Should I leave it there

Should I give up
Or should I just keep chasin' pavements
Even if it leads nowhere
Or would it be a waste
Even if I knew my place should I leave it there
Should I give up
Or should I just keep on chasin' pavements
Should I just keep on chasin' pavements
Ohh oh

[Chorus x2]

Disney Fairy Tales ... Twisted !

.
3 comments




Little Red Riding Hood

The version of this tale that most of us are familiar with ends with Riding Hood being saved by the woodsman who kills the wicked wolf. But in fact, the original French version (by Charles Perrault) of the tale was not quite so nice. In this version, the little girl is a well bred young lady who is given false instructions by the wolf when she asks the way to her grandmothers. Foolishly riding hood takes the advice of the wolf and ends up being eaten. And here the story ends. There is no woodsman – no grandmother – just a fat wolf and a dead Red Riding Hood. The moral to this story is to not take advice from strangers.


The Little Mermaid

The 1989 version of the Little Mermaid might be
better known as “The big whopper!” In the Disney version, the film ends with Ariel the mermaid being changed into a human so she can marry Eric. They marry in a wonderful wedding attended by humans and merpeople. But, in the very first version by Hans Christian Andersen, the mermaid sees the Prince marry a princess and she despairs. She is offered a knife with which to stab the prince to death, but rather than do that she jumps into the sea and dies by turning to froth. Hans Christian Andersen modified the ending slightly to make it more pleasant. In his new ending, instead of dying when turned to froth, she becomes a “daughter of the air” waiting to go to heaven – so, frankly, she is still dead for all intents and purposes


Sleeping Beauty

In the original sleeping beauty, the lovely princess is put to sleep when she pricks her finger on a spindle. She sleeps for one hundred years when a prince finally arrives, kisses her, and awakens her. They fall in love, marry, and (surprise surprise) live happily ever after. But alas, the original tale is not so sweet (in fact, you have to read this to believe it.) In the original, the young woman is put to sleep because of a prophesy, rather than a curse. And it isn’t the kiss of a prince which wakes her up: the king seeing her asleep, and rather fancying having a bit, rapes her. After nine months she gives birth to two children (while she is still asleep). One of the children sucks her finger which removes the piece of flax which was keeping her asleep. She wakes up to find herself raped and the mother of two kids.


Hansel and Gretel

In the widely known version of Hansel and Gretel, we hear of two little children who become lost in the forest, eventually finding their way to a gingerbread house which belongs to a wicked witch. The children end up enslaved for a time as the witch prepares them for eating. They figure their way out and throw the witch in a fire and escape. In an earlier French version of this tale (called The Lost Children), instead of a witch we have a devil. Now the wicked old devil is tricked by the children (in much the same way as Hansel and Gretel) but he works it out and puts together a sawhorse to put one of the children on to bleed (that isn’t an error – he really does). The children pretend not to know how to get on the sawhorse so the devil’s wife demonstrates. While she is lying down the kids slash her throat and escape.


Goldilocks and the Three Bear

In this heart warming tale, we hear of pretty little goldilocks who finds the house of the three bears. She sneaks inside and eats their food, sits in their chairs, and finally falls asleep on the bed of the littlest bear. When the bears return home they find her asleep – she awakens and escapes out the window in terror. The original tale (which actually only dates to 1837) has two possible variations. In the first, the bears find Goldilocks and rip her apart and eat her. In the second, Goldilocks is actually an old hag who (like the sanitized version) jumps out of a window when the bears wake her up. The story ends by telling us that she either broke her neck in the fall, or was arrested for vagrancy and sent to the “House of Correction”.


Snow White

In the tale of snow white that we are all familiar with, the Queen asks a huntsman to kill her and bring her heart back as proof. Instead, the huntsman can’t bring himself to do it and returns with the heart of a boar. Now, fortunately disney hasn’t done too much damage to this tale, but they did leave out one important original element: in the original tale, the Queen actually asks for Snow White’s liver and lungs – which are to be served for dinner that night! Also in the original, Snow White wakes up when she is jostled by the prince’s horse as he carries her back to his castle – not from a magical kiss. What the prince wanted to do with a dead girl’s body I will leave to your imagination. Oh – in the Grimm version, the tale ends with the Queen being forced to dance to death in red hot iron shoes.


Cinderella

In the modern Cinderella fairy tale we have the beautiful Cinderella swept off her feet by the prince and her wicked step sisters marrying two lords – with everyone living happily ever after. The fairy tale has its origins way back in the 1st century BC where Strabo’s heroine was actually called Rhodopis, not Cinderella. The story was very similar to the modern one with the exception of the glass slippers and pumpkin coach. But, lurking behind the pretty tale is a more sinister variation by the Grimm brothers: in this version, the nasty step-sisters cut off parts of their own feet in order to fit them into the glass slipper – hoping to fool the prince. The prince is alerted to the trickery by two pigeons who peck out the step sister’s eyes. They end up spending the rest of their lives as blind beggars while Cinderella gets to lounge about in luxury at the prince’s castle.

I was so disappointed with the result yesterday ..
I guess , we, Filipinos feel the same way !
It's been such a long time since Manny received his last defeat against Marquez in 2005 and just like the same , it was a split decision !

I think there's something beyond the game !
It's pretty obvious that Manny won the fight against Bradley from the punches he throw
I am determined !

But there was a big twist ..
Maybe they let bradley win the game so there would be a re-match .
If there would be a re-match they said on November 10 I'm not sure ,
they will receive bigger bags of money ..
Now that's something ! 


take that you #!#@@$% FUUUUU !!


really huh ?! then why ?!!


Good thing Manny is a professional person ..

********************************************

Hey Bradley !
Take that belt away from you .. what are you ??

.........

Hey Manny !
without that belt what are you ?

A billioner , congressman, philanthropist, preacher and a good person .

10 Things You Should Know Before Blogging

.
0 comments

You want to become a professional blogger, make loads of money and have the good life. All these guys do is write for a living, right? They spend a couple hours a week to put up a few blog posts and their readers are just itching for more. These bloggers are following the ten blogging commandments.

1. Have passion about your topic

You want to write something that you would read. If you're constantly reading about sports, why not make a sports blog? The right topic is one that you are passionate about. Readers always have room for one more blog if it's well written and from the heart.

2. Be consistent with your topic

You are drawing on a canvas when you write new posts. If you are painting with subdued blues and greens, it is jarring to suddenly switch over to fluorescent fuchsia. Likewise is you suddenly talk about religion on your weight loss journal.

3. Respond to comments

Comments provide that extra personalization to the blog. They can sometimes expound upon the topic. They can provide the forum for some great discussions and further blog posts. Give them a response and be thankful that people are reading.

4. Search for blogs you like

Chances are, there are blogs that you have been keeping up with for ages. What keeps you going back? Is it the writer's style and ego? Is it the way that the blogger loves peaches just like you? Place your own spin on the things you like about these sites.

5. Have an ironclad ego

You can't take comments personally. You wanted your blog to inspire passion, and it has. Remember that the angry commenters may be having a bad day and want to take it out anonymously on those around them.

6. Be a stickler for your posting schedule

Following a posting schedule is paramount to retaining readers. It's better if you write it in your profile 'Every Tuesday and Friday, … brings us into the world of great cheese,' but it should be followed. Essentially, you do not want to give your readers any reasons to stray.

7. Invest in a good design

You have about thirty seconds to make a great impression on a reader who is cruising for new blogs. Anything that makes a blog harder to read, from loud wallpapers to busy animations, drives visitors away instead of attracting them.

8. Be the one in charge

When it comes down to it, you're the one who's writing. You are the one in charge, not the commenters. They may be the ones who offer advice, but you're steering the ship.

9. Market your blog

You would read your blog because it offers the best advice in your favorite topic. Why not let other people know about it through advertising?

10. Invest a lot of time in your blog

Everything you do to improve your blog takes time. You need to do research into the new trends. You need to look into the new marketing techniques. You need to brush up on comma usage. A great blog takes time and does not come out of thin air.

I wish that I had these commandments when I first started blogging. I wish that I'd known how much time it takes to do research and keep up with marketing. I wish that I had known I'd be in charge of the marketing, because I thought that there was a magic visitor button to make traffic run to my site. Following these tips will help you incrementally improve traffic to your blog, and that is how real success is born.

 Jenga Shot Glasses

Jenga Shot Glasses
The Drunken Tower Shot Glass Game is a game of steady hands, big laughs and seeing double! We have all played the famous block stacking game "jenga" before; this is the same concept with a wild twist!

Each of the 60 wooden blocks has one of 15 challenging commands printed on it. Upon removing the block the person must read the block and the table or player must follow that command. After that challenge has been completed they put the block back on top of the pile and repeat until the tower falls down. (Link)
