Is Facebook Safe?

According to research studies, Filipinos are known to be one of the most active Facebook users in the world. In fact, we are not only active users, but we are one of the most active in terms of uploading pictures and videos.

While many people get hooked on using social networking sites as a way of interacting to others, finding long lost friends, and sharing their thoughts, it is also quite alarming that the number of social network-related crimes and violence is rising.

Recently, a Filipino actor-director, Ricky Rivero, has been stabbed a couple of times by someone whom he only got acquainted with in Facebook. This, along with other "unheard" stories, make up a long list of the bad effects of Social Networking Sites, especially to the kids and the young people.

While we can't really stop people from registering on these sites, may we take heed of the below basic precautions:

• Never post important personal details that you don't normally give to everyone (Bank Details, Cellphone Numbers, Credit Card Numbers)

• Accept only Friend Requests that you personally know. Do not accept friend requests just because you have a common friend.

• Do not just click forwarded links.

• As much as possible, persons allowed to view your profile/page should only be those people listed on your friends list.

• Never chat with someone whom you do not personally know.

These are just some of those basic but helpful tips we can follow to avoid, if not minimize the harms done by social networking sites to users.

Purchasing Medical Uniforms and Scrubs

For at least more than fire years now, Nursing has become one of the most (if not the most) sought-after courses by the Filipino youth.

While some really has inclination to medicine and science courses, most of the students prefer Nursing because they think that this is their passport to migrate to other countries such as Singapore, Canada, the United States and United Kingdom. This is because in the early 2000s, many of our nurses were given the opportunity to work in these countries, and when they got back to the Philippines, they were able to acquire houses, lands and other properties. Needless to say, the salary/pay in other countries are much much bigger as compared to what they could have been receiving domestically.

On this thought, the young, after graduating from High School, are enticed to enroll in colleges and universities that offer Nursing and/or Pre-medicine courses.

With the increase in number of nursing students, graduates and professional nurses, nursing equipments, uniform and gadgets also increased. Typically, you can find stores that offer medical supplies, equipments and uniforms near colleges, universities, and hospitals. There are also specific areas in the Metropolis where these supplies and uniforms are sold in cheaper prices. The area of Bambang in Manila is well-known for stores that sell medical equipments at lower prices, while in Divisoria, you can purchase nursing scrubs and hospital uniforms.

While some students and nurses prefer to purchase at low costs in these stores and location, others, especially those who have busy schedules, are buying uniforms via the internet. However, as there are a lot of fake online stores, it is very important to purchase on online stores that are proven to sell nursing uniforms at the best quality. One of those authentic online stores is may be found in this link: http://www.blueskyscrubs.com/categories/Scrubs/Scrubs-for-Women/ .

There are other online stores that offer quality nursing scrubs and medical uniforms and I shall be very glad to update the links for you in the coming days.

Fashionable Nursing Scrubs

Being a complete novice with regards to surgical and medical terms, I was a bit confused when my brother, who is based in the United Kingdom, has emailed me and asked me where he could buy nursing scrubs. Though the hospital where he is currently employed provides one, he said that it is always good that he has an alternate scrub on his own.

He went on to explain that nursing scrubs, together with cotton surgical scrubs, are those suits that medical practicioners, particularly nurses and nursing assistants, wear while on duty. Needless to say, they should always look neat and nice whenever assisting patients- but then, neat and nice should not mean you could not be fashionable.

These days, there are nursing scrubs that are trendy and cool to wear. There are also cotton surgical scrubs that have nice prints and can fit the character of the one wearing them.

I told my brother that there will definitely be cheap scrubs for men that are sold here in the local market, however, I am not so sure if these are authentic.

I searched for the web and found out that there are online shops that offer comfortable and quality (yet trendy!) nursing scrubs. Maybe, I will just ask my brother to purchase online rather than let me buy for him. This makes it more beneficial for him because he'll get to chose the one trendy and fashionable scrub that he likes to wear at work.
