Danger: Distracted Driving

How many lives lost on road accidents? The number is staggering and alarming. Why? Accidents happen because of irresponsible drivers driving while having conversation on the phone. Some drivers are texting while driving which is the worst distraction of all! Here in Florida, 9 out of 10 are talking on the phone while driving. There is always danger on the road if most drivers are distracted with gadgets. I wish Florida will have a law that prohibits the driver from using the phone while they are driving. How about in your place? Check out the infographic below for information about Distracted Driving.

Ashers Chocolates

About a month ago, my wife started writing to companies stating her desire to review their products. I really didn't know about this trend in online marketing but, companies had this for a long time now. I was amazed that my wife had 100% response. I look forward to see the mailman everyday as well as the FedEx delivery guy because for sure, we have a package.... good for me I guess LOL.
This is a chocolate coated and white chocolate coated pretzels from Asher's, my wife's favorite.

Every Christmas, I like to eat chocolate coated cherries. When my wife selected the free products from Asher's, she got me this Sugar Free Milk Cordial Cherries. This is really good.

Bridgeway: Learning Style Assessment

Parents wanted nothing but the best for their children. That is the main reason why parents work hard for the family. Responsible parents wanted to provide them with the best of everything and that includes education.

When our child reached the right age to start schooling, we have butterflies in our stomach. The separation anxiety hit us good and then, doubts started to develop in our minds. Would she ever survive a day in school without me by her side? Would she eat her lunch without me assisting her? Would she be able to make friends with her classmates? These are typical queries that often we asked ourselves right? 

Bridgeway Free Learning Style Assessment is here to help the parents who are on the edge in decision making for their beloved child's education preference. If you are not comfortable to send your child to a school then; you might like the option of homeschooling.

Bridgeway Academy offers Programs from Kindergarten to High School. They are duly accredited and their programs are leaning to develop the child's value, intellect and character.

Department of Neurology at Beth Israel Medical Center in New York

"Good health is wealth. It is more valuable than having material wealth."

I read a story about a young successful man who became a millionaire because of his brilliance, profession and wit. He has everything that he wished to have from luxury cars, dream home, elite friends and money. He thought, happiness is having those good things in life. One day, he was diagnosed of having a cancer and might live for few months. The bad news swallowed him whole. Not him ... at the prime of his life, he said. Before he passed away, he shared the statements above to his friends and family. 

He is indeed right! Health is wealth.

People who are very sick is at the mercy of  the doctors. At least, the medication prescribed by the doctor helps the pain go away for a period of time. Surgeons are expert in their own chosen field and they are trying their best to cure the sick.

Plastic and Spin Welding

I was watching a Filipino Channel and it was a game show where some of their entertainers visit to some places. It is their way of reaching out to their viewers. They will have games and participants are required to bring plastic bottles. I was wondering why they did that and later on, they showed plastic chairs. The more they collected plastic bottles, the greater number of plastic chairs that they can provide to hinterland schools. It was really impressive.

When they collect those garbage plastic bottles, they actually prevent waste of potentially useful materials. What are these useful materials?  Plastics, plastic bottles, newspapers, glass as well as metal and soda cans. People just throw them away and it goes to the landfill if they don't recycle. By collecting these useful materials, it will reduce air pollution and water pollution for sure. It will not clog the drainage therefore, flooding will be preventive too.

In the US, we segregate our garbage right? We have recycle bins. I was watching a documentary about plastic bottles and what material can be made out of it. A polyester clothing out of garbage, would it be possible? Oh yeah! I saw a video and they shredded the plastic bottles and export it to other countries. There are demands of plastic bottles in the textile industry. I saw how they used heavy machinery to make polyester clothing from the shredded plastic bottles.

Well, without the innovation of this unbelievable machine, plastic bottles are impossible to make clothing. It will take years to make a thread. Machines such as plastic welding and spin welding are innovations that are essential to make the job done fast and easy. The spin welding is used because the frictional heat joins the two parts together. Have you noticed that some plastic container has nice upper part? Spin welding was used to it and you can't tell the difference. The plastic at the top is spun at high speeds against the plastic at the bottom. Innovations are great isn't it?

Church Volunteer

My wife took the time to fill up the Volunteer Form in our church. She really wanted to join the choir so; she signed for it. Back in her Elementary and High School years, she belongs to a church choir and she's an "Alto". She told me that she enjoyed the practice and serving during masses. Her favorite season is during Christmas. She loves carolling and they gave out letters to some parishioners and when they are welcome in the household, they provide an envelope for donation as well as the schedule and they sang Christmas Carols.

When she was in college in Xavier University, she auditioned for the Glee Club and she was in. Though the Glees are not singing in masses, she enjoyed being a member of the group. They traveled to different cities and did series of concerts. On Christmas Season, before the school breaks for the holiday, the Glee Club presents a Christmas Concert in the University. Those are her cherished memories and I can see her eyes twinkle when she shared those happy thoughts to me.

She traveled halfway around the globe and her heart yearn to serve in the church so; she volunteered and I tag along. Actually, for Tuesdays, we both volunteered to help the B-I-N-G-O initiated by the parishioners in the church. 

Oh, we had fun. Two volunteers did not show up today. They told us to sit on the table and sell cards. We were 7 manning the selling of different cards and we were able to adjust and get the flow very quickly. I enjoyed it and we met interesting people. Most of the frequent players knew everyone so; they said ... we are newbies and they welcome us. Next week, we will be there again.

Specialty Bulb Company Inc

Have you been to the dental room or operating room in the hospital? The lamps they used are different. The halogen lamp, CFL, and LED are common lamps in the household. In medical and dental facilities, they are using scientific lighting called Deuterium Lamps. 

Most of us are familiar with CFL or Compact Fluorescent Lamps and we are using CFL lamp because it is energy efficient and cost-effective. There are other types of lamps such as sealed beam lamps, aviation lamps, railroad and railway lamps, ultraviolet lamps and many more.


Two Weeks After Hurricane Sandy

Florida is just lucky that Hurricane Sandy passes away from our state. Despite all that, our shoreline experienced the harsh blow of giant waves ... up to 12 ft high. We went to Mai Tiki Bar located at the end part (800 ft) of Cocoa Beach Pier just to witness the big waves as reported in the local news channel. We went all the way at the back of Mai Tiki Bar and as the waves slammed the pillars beneath the Pier, I could feel the place we stood at shaking. We stayed for 20 minutes and we were about more than 15 at the bar. It was raining when we left Mai Tai. Storm Sandy was nowhere near us. It was indeed a monstrous storm. 

We live 5 minutes away from Indian River and about 25 minutes away from the shoreline of Atlantic. If there is a storm like Sandy in the future, we will evacuate for sure. It's been 2 weeks since Sandy hit Staten Island New York and up to today, thousands still in the dark and no power. I pray that God will give them strength to hurdle this unfortunate event. I also hope that the local officials and the government will speed up the HELP that these people need.
