 Survey: 80% of Pinoys consider fuel efficiency more important than power

Remember when buying a car was simple? Yeah, neither can we. Today, prospective car shoppers—even younger, less-diligent ones—have to consider everything: from the vehicle’s design and versatility, right down to the number of cupholders and USB ports it has. Yikes.
 

 

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.”

Ang Diyos ang tunay na yaman at kasiyahan

PASTOR JUNIE JOSUE - AGENT 777 | RUTH JOSUE

Kakatapos lamang ng Olympics 2016 sa Rio de Janeiro. Kagaya ng nakalipas na tatlong Olympics, ang tagumpay ni Michael Phelps ay muling kumuha ng atensyon ng bilyon bilyong tao sa buong mundo. Nakakuha siya ng 5 medalyang ginto at isang pilak. Siya ang may pinaka maraming medalya sa kasaysayan ng Olympics. Ngunit may pambihirang pangyayari sa buhay niya bago ang nakalipas na Olympics. Nalulong siya sa bisyo at na rehab. Ilang beses din siyang nahuli na nagmamaneho ng kotse na may alak sa kanyang katawan. Binalak din niyang magpakamatay dahil mababa ang kanyang pagtingin sa sarili at pakiramdam niya ay walang saysay ang kanyang buhay. Dito lamang pinapakita na kahit na ikaw na ang pinaka matagumpay na atleta sa Olympics ay hindi parin ito sapat para bigyan ng kasiyahan at kaganapan ang buhay. Mayroon na siyang 22 medalya ng mangyari ito sa kanya, maraming pera ng dahil sa endorsements at sikat na sikat, ngunit hindi pa rin ito sapat. Paano pa kaya ang mga ordinaryong tao na kagaya natin kung sa mga bagay sa mundo lamang tayo maghahanap ng kasiyahan at layunin?  Full Article...

YOU’RE saving and planning for your children’s future and you want what’s best for them. But what would happen if one of your children developed a serious illness?
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.
