The Top Ten Unexplained Phenomena
Science seems to have it all but it cannot explain all phenomena. Here is a list of the top ten from Live Science:#10 The Body/Mind ConnectionMedical science is only beginning to understand the ways in which the mind influences the body. The placebo effect, for example, demonstrates that people can at times cause a relief in medical symptoms or suffering by believing the cures to be effective - whether they actually are or not. Using processes only poorly understood, the body's ability to heal itself is far more amazing than anything modern medicine could create.#9 Psychic powers and ESPPsychic powers and extra-sensory perception (ESP) rank among the top ten unexplained phenomena if for no other reason than that belief in them is so widespread. Many people believe that intuition (see #3) is a form of psychic power, a way of accessing arcane or special knowledge about the world or the future. Researchers have tested people who claim to have psychic powers, though the results under ...

Communism is Ideal for China
Could you imagine 1.3 billion people living in democracy? I remember playing the game civilization wherein if you don't have the absolute resources and hundreds of billions to spend on people you cannot afford a democratic government wherein there are varying needs and rants that needs to be addressed. 1.3 billion people means 1.3 billion different aspirations, personal ambitions and views. A scenario which could be very costly in a democratic government.Communism assures that the general welfare of the state is protected and the needs of the citizens are addressed without actually adhering to every sectors demand at the same time. Competing needs and personal ambitions are checked by the state where otherwise it could lead to disaster and instability.I am not a fan of Chinese Communism for I believe that it is not the real communism in its concept. I am in favor of real democracy which is in fact a blend of communism and socialism. Democracy puts port collective effort and w...

A Prediction of the End of Days or Doomsday on December 2012
During my lifetime since I was in Elementary the prediction of the End of the World had been repeated many times. Back in 8-8-88 or August 8, 1988 there was a prediction that there will be a three days of darkness and doomsday but none of that happened. Before the year 2000 which was called the Millennium there was also a doomsday prediction but it did not happen.Now there is another prediction and theory which is shown in various uploaded videos in YouTube wherein a prediction that the current age in which we are in will end on December 2012. This was predicted by the Mayan, Inca, Aztec, and Egyptian civilization. In 2012 it is said that we will pass through the Galactic Equinox and major repercussions will occur. Below are a series of video regarding this.. and you be the judge.What do you think? Comments are welcome.

The Democratic Contest Favors McCain
Barrack Obama looses the Pennsylvania primary to rival Hilary Clinton. As this develops we are assured of a longer and fierce battle among the two. We might see more dirts thrown on each other. Each calling one another unfit to lead the country. More damaging among the two techniques was that of Hilary Clinton however. Her accusations on Obama seems to have serious repercussions against him if he indeed becomes the Democrat nominee.Who will be favored by a damage candidate among the two candidates? That would of course be the Republican nominee in waiting John McCain. McCain now focuses in unifying the Republicans as well as preparing for the general elections in November while the two is still in the mud pool.I highly recommend and suggest that either one of them step aside and let the other become the nominee before they destroy each other. Considering all the current data and statistics Hilary Clinton should be the one to drop out of the race and instead support Barrack O...

Warren Jeffs' Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 3
Although the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is not the only religion which has plural marriages because other religions like Islam also practices this but the thing is they have really gone overboard on this. Marriages with fathers and daughter was really outrageous and horrfying. How could someone even think about that.This church and the founder of this church should really be penalized. They are even giving damage to the original teachings of the Mormon Church.Now we continue with the story behind this religious sect sourced from GMA News...As the months passed without incident, the townspeople's' fear of the group morphed first into a generalized disgust of the sect's polygamous practices, then a morbid curiosity with the now-finished, gleaming white temple (which had 4-foot-thick outer walls of poured concrete), and its priesthood rites, marriage ceremonies and secretive ordinations.When Jeffs, the self-styled prophet, predicted Armageddon in 2...

Warren Jeffs' Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 2
Religion is said to be fundamental in man's existence. It is said that it gives him a sense of purpose. But what if that religion and sense of purpose is distorted by someone. In the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints which is one of the largest Mormon fundamentalist denominations and one of America's largest practitioners of plural marriages this had been the case.The FLDS Church teaches the doctrine of plural marriage, which states that a man having multiple wives is ordained by God and is a requirement for a man to receive the highest form of salvation. It is generally believed in the church that a man should have a minimum of three wives to fulfill this requirement. Connected with this doctrine is the concept that wives are required to be subordinate to their husbands.The church currently practices the law of placing, whereby a young woman of marriageable age is assigned a husband by revelation from God to the leader of the church, who is regarded as...

Warren Jeffs' Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints 1
I decided to divide this posting in order to properly expose and show the story of this religious cult who preached polygamy and many acts which are fundamentalism at its higher level. It is a religion so fundamentalist that you will never believe that someone like this could exist.Below is an audio-video of Warren Jeffs teachings of celestial laws of polygamy offered to young female students. This is #7 of the same audio tape in sequence, from a Home Economics class from 1997, of Warren Jeffs voice.The Mormon fundamentalist polygamist sect was founded by Warren Steed Jeffs (born December 3, 1955, in San Francisco, California) known as the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (FLDS Church) from 2002 to 2007. Jeffs' position in this organization was reportedly that of absolute ruler.Here is another video of him explaining polygamy...Now here is a background story sourced from GMA News...ELDORADO, Texas - The guy didn't look much like a hunter.

The Inside Story of Warren Jeffs' Polygamist Cult "Banking on Heaven"
The latest story and shock found out in Texas about a ranch who is the home to a polygamous cult was really shocking and terrfying. How can a religion believe about things which are totally unethical and immoral. It is scary enough way back in the 90's when David Koresh's Davidian's claimed lives by committing mass suicide. Now here is another religion who uses faith to breed hatred, racism and fundamentalism."The Inside Story of Warren Jeffs' Polygamist Cult BANKING ON HEAVEN is the inside story of the largest polygamous enclave in the United States, written, produced, and narrated by Laurie Allen, who escaped a similar polygamous sect at age sixteen.

Information is Vital in Choosing Your Credit Card
I am sure that most of the teenagers out there wanted to have a credit card. Why? The simple reason is that there are many offers currently in the market that puts advantage on credit card owners to take the purchase. High end gadgets are now available to credit card owners at almost zero percent interest in installment and that makes it a lot more affordable than paying it in cash. But before you get that offer you should have a credit card and before going for a credit card you should background check and research on the most viable credit cards.So how do you screen out credit cards and how do you choose? Well first and foremost the credit card company should have at least established a name in the industry. You should not just go and jump on a company who offers very small interest but is relatively new. After that, the next thing in consideration is its acceptance. Is it accepted in majority of stores? How many accepts this card?When you are done with that, then comes i...

Victim of Vicente Sotto Scandal Speaks...
I have stumbled upon Aking Mundo blog and found the posting about an article from Cebu News Daily wherein Danilo, the person in the taped video scandal narrated accounts of his trauma. Apparently he was either bisexual or gay and based on what he said it was not intentional to have the canister in his anus but was a result of revenge by a man he had casual sex with.This should serve as a warning to those who are having casual sex to be very careful and know the person first before giving it and of course please have decency. I could not imagine that Danilo accepted having sex for just a hundred pesos. For me he is also part to blame for his demise.Story follows...Video scandal grips Cebu hospitalMan’s surgery posted on YouTubeBy Carine M.

Vicente Sotto Hospital Management Takes Inept Actions Amidst Video Scandal
I say that the Vicente Sotto Hospital Management has taken a very mild action against those who perpetrated the video taking and abuse of the patient who was seen in a video with a canister being removed from his anus. See video of the management's press conference and actions...My take read on plus another inept explanation video...More action should have been taken and for me disbarring them and banning them on the medical profession is the right action. Majority of hospitals and doctors in the Philippines are not like this. They are a disgrace to the profession and to their fellow professionals.

Amega Neodymium Magnetic Bracelets Helps in Having a Good Night Sleep
Neodymium magnetic bracelets really works in some way. Since I got this bracelet from Amega Global I am still skeptic about how it can help increase someone's health and other physical factors. Not until I tested it in order to help me in my sleeping problems and it did work. From then on whenever I sleep very early in the morning I would immediately look for my bracelet and wear it since my wife is the one regularly wearing it.Since I had tons of work to do including blogging, maintaining our organizations website and other I usually sleep very early in the morning around 3:00am to 4:00am. I will usually drink SanMig extra strong coffee so that I will not be sleepy. When I do sleep, I just can't sleep for about an hour or so because I would begin dreaming and seeing things and also have slight shiver. Maybe it's because of the coffee.That was what I usually experience. When the time I have the bracelet I decided to put it into a test. Immediately after wearing it I would...
