PNOY Rating Continues To Decline

President Benigno "Noynoy" S. Aquino's net satisfaction rating continues to decline. That is according to the latest survey released by the Social Weather Station (SWS) conducted this June 2011.

In November 2010, Aquino's rating is at +64. It plummeted to +51 in March 2011, then further declined to +46 this June.

The study also reveals that most of those dissatisfied with the President are women, those in Class D, NCR residents, and some parts of Luzon. He continues to enjoy high ratings in the Visayas and Mindanao Area.

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.
