LeBron James to become free agent, near-certain to stay with Cavs

For the third offseason in a row, LeBron James will be a free agent. For the second offseason in a row, there’s little doubt about where he’ll sign.
The 2016 NBA Finals MVP has decided not to exercise his player option for the 2016-17 season, thereby putting him on the open market when free agency begins July 1. However, this move was considered highly likely and does not jeopardize LeBron’s promised return to Cleveland following the franchise’s first championship. It is almost entirely a financial decision. Full story...

World Book Day – NanieGuanlao and his free library in Manila

In the Makati district of Manila in the Phili‚Äčppines, there’s a large sign outside the front of an otherwise unassuming house stating “free reading to the public”. Over the last fifteen years, Ernando ‘Nanie’ Guanlao has transformed his home into a library, open to anyone and everyone.

Starting with only 100 books, the 63 year-old former accountant has spent the last years collecting books for the library. He now piles up more than 1,000 books every year.

“My home, my library. It’s free, for everybody. You’re welcome to drop in, to talk to me, to see me, enjoy my place”, Nanie says, “books are my mission, they are here simply to make people happy.”


The WorldRemit app helps people support initiatives like this back home by letting them send money straight from their smartphone, instead of having to travel to a money transfer agent. Those receiving money– often in developing countries - can collect the funds as mobile money, bank transfer, for cash pickup or as a mobile airtime top-up.

WorldRemit’s service is available to senders in 50 countries. It offers transfers to more than 125 destinations across Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia and the Americas. WorldRemit customers send 400,000 transfers every month.

Huwag Pasaway sa Diyos

ng hindi mapasama


Ang lahat ng tao ay naghahangad ng kapayapaan. Ngunit saan nga ba natin ito makukuha? Ang tunay na kapayapaan ay nanggagaling sa ating desisyong mabuhay nang ayon sa disenyo ng Diyos sa ating pagkakalikha at ng buhay na tinalaga niya para sa atin. Kaguluhan, kapahamakan at samu’t saring mga problema na maaring maiwasan ang mararanasan ng mga taong namumuhay na salungat sa plano ng Diyos. Mula ng nagkasala sina Adan at Eba, likas na sa tao ang magrebelde at sumuway sa Diyos, na nagsasanhi ng mga mapapait na pangyayari. May dalawang anak na lalaki sina Adan at Eba, na sina Cain at Abel. Parehas na nagalay ng handog ang magkapatid sa Diyos. Si Abel ay nagalay ng hayop na sinunog na naging katanggap tanggap sa Diyos. Si Cain ay nag alay ng kanyang mga pananim na hindi naging katanggap tanggap sa Diyos. Dahil dito ay nagalit si Cain. Hindi malinaw kung bakit tinaggap ang kay Abel at hindi ang kay Cain. Ngunit malinaw na imbis na magsisi si Cain at gawin ang nararapat ay nagalit siya at pinabayaang maghari ito sa kanyang puso at magbunga ng mas lalong hindi katanggap tanggap na bagay sa Diyos. Napatay niya ang kapatid na si Abel. Full Article...

Thankfully, medical advancements mean better treatments and outcomes for serious illnesses. That said, health-care costs continue to rise and we can expect that we’ll have to pay more of those costs.  Recovery from an illness can be stressful and expensive.
