Jaysee blabs about the power of change

The world is going to end as we know it and it scares a lot of people lately.Floods, earthquakes, abrupt climate change and unexplainable natural calamities that have been caused by harsh human activities have come abound here and there.

How we protect ourselves is a priority not just for our government but for each of us individually because it is not what our country can do for us but what we can do for it.

Solutions doesn't come by mind setting alone but it has to be coupled with a series of actions that works toward a common goaland that is positive change through the little actions we make that will impact greatly when the time comes.

Alter Space: Amazing Pinoy Facebook Game Ever!

Image
Aboitiz leads once again and this time putting our country in the global map as they have developed the first Filipino Facebook game. We are becoming that awesome. 


Through the resources of their subsidiary, the AboitizPower, the Facebook game is supposed to teach us about the ends of what we are doing on Earth that upsets the whole ecosystem. 

The environmental advocacy that the game entails should be enough to raise enough awareness while at the same time prove that we can level up with game publishers abroad.I first heard about the game titled “Alter Space”when it was introduced to us by the executives of Aboitiz Equity Ventures in a party hosted here in Cebu.

About Alter SpaceAlter Space is a Facebook game developed by Cleanergy.

In Alter Space, players are tasked to take care of their own planet. Players progress by adding points to their Happiness, Current-cy, and Experience levels—while keeping their carbon footprint level in check, otherwise their planet and their avatar will per…

What you may not know about your PC

Notes from the Intel Blogger Workshop.
photo by Tony MaroUNDERSTANDING THE BASICSDon’t compare computers based on clock speeds unless they use processors from the same family such as Core, Celeron, Pentium and Core 2 Duo and have the same number of processing cores. Processors of different brands should not be compared using clock speed as their designs vary radically. 2GB of RAM is ideal for everyday users. Memory can be easily upgraded at a later point. If you need more capacity at a later stage, a cost effective DIY solution is to purchase an external USB 2.0 hard drive. Consider using Solid State Drives (SSD) because it has the capacity of 160GB and unlike traditional hard drives, there is no moving parts. This means quiet, more rugged, energy-efficient and faster system responsiveness. Only the computers with the most powerful processors can make full use of discrete graphics. THE HOURGLASS SYNDROMEWhat is it?Intel describes it as “the stress and frustration that we feel when we …

He also dislikes children but thing is, he is friendly.First stop after buying their home was to go fishing and tour the Landgraab Industries Science Facility…

Reasons Why I Will Vote Gibo and the Sims 2 “Lipad” Ad I made for him

Image
POSITIVE CAMPAIGNING
speaks of RECONCILIATION and UNITY.
offers realistic solutions.
He is NOT tainted with corruption or any scandal.
has most KNOWLEDGE on REGION SPECIFIC PROBLEMS
possessed: INTEGRITY, COMPETENCE and CHARACTER.
has the POLITICAL WILL
I loved him so much that I decided to create a music video/campaign for him using my favorite computer game, The Sims 2. With the inspiring song “Lipad” by Rivermaya, I decided to incorporate elements of the plane, him interacting with the commoners, and adding his strongest points as subtitles all throughout, I proudly present to you the

Lipad – Sims 2 Gibo Music Video.


Because he could really need a little more exposure.
Even my own brother has told me to stop campaigning for him because the odds are that he will lose, given the figures that the surveys show and the fact that the voting public is mostly made up of people that (let’s just say) don’t belong to the thinking class and who only depends on the mainstr…
