More on online Tutorials

Top schools and those vying to be competitive often go for high academic standards. And their teachers appear to have a penchant for making the life of students even harder. Some teachers keep lectures and explanations short leaving students to fill in considerable gaps in understanding the subject matter. Tests are difficult and sometimes include topics not covered by their lectures. We often hear these complaints from students. Some of course are alibis for low grades. However I did experience these anomalies when I was a student in a state college.

I would say that a tutor is even more relevant to students now a days. To stay competitive or pass difficult subjects, tutors could help a lot. Fortunately there are online tutorial programs offered by some companies mostly for a fee. They can provide an online tutor to address one's tutorial needs promptly. Certainly online tutorial services is a big help to students.

It is wise to choose leading on line tutorial companies offeri…

Merry Christmass to All

Christmas is a spending season whether we like it or not. There are more than a hundred reasons not to mention the sales promotions being offered by malls, travel companies, air lines and even credit houses to entice people to spend more and part with their hard earned cash this season. For one Christmas is a season of giving and of traditional celebrations. So inevitably we have to part with our hard earned cash.
With the tight economy however, we can choose to be prudent in spending. Notice how much food and drinks are wasted during Noche Buena (midnight family gathering on Christmas eve) and new year's day? Maybe we can cut back a little on the menu and volume of food and drinks. For gifts, scour malls and retail stores for discounts and inexpensive give always. Instead of spending Christmas vacation somewhere, think of staying home this time. However activities to make Christmas at home more eventful and meaningful to family and love ones have to be carefully planned and e…

Surviving Economic Slowdowns

The recent and seemingly on-going economic slowdown of the US is a nagging concern to the rest of the world. When the world's richest and most powerful nation sneezes, the others have to hold their breath and brace for the worst. Hardest hit financially and psychologically are the ordinary citizens and even businessmen. The impact of an economy going sour is mostly felt by the common citizenry. Losing one's job or seeing friends losing theirs is a gut wrenching experience.

I do too worry what the future brings particularly to job security and ultimately to my pocket. I have bills and debts to pay. I have future must expenses. How to manage and meet all of these obligations given my limited financial resources and propensity to buy things on impulse is really daunting.

Unfortunately we have little or no influence on preventing job loses or business closures.
So as they say it, better use our resources and energy on factors we have control of. I do believe we can survive better e…

Filipino Nation Celebrates Pacquiao's Triumph

In the Philippines, everything seem to take a backseat activities everytime Pacquiao fights. Crime and even insurgent activities drastically drop. The recent Pacquiao-Margarito fight was no exception. Everybody it seems is watching the fight. Glued to their TV sets or theater screens, folks all over the nation were shown in news footages spontaneously erupting into cheers everytime Pacquiao hits Margarito. Though the expected knockout did not materialize, the Filipinos were ecstatic over Pacquiao's victory. Pacquiao not only convincingly won the fight but now possess the distinction of topping eight weight divisions. This is unprecendented in the boxing history - a record to beat for a long long time. Here is a fearless boxer who fought the top boxers of his time in different wight divisions and beat them all. Yet in all of these successes, Pacquaio remains humble and well mannered. No wonder he is a boxing icon not only in this nation but the world over.

I watched the fight on …

Relocating To Other Places

Relocating to other places or country is a tough act. Leaving familiar grounds, friends and one's home for several years is a very difficult decision. Moving to other locations however commonly happens to people anywhere. I myself have stayed in the same place for years but I have not discounted the possibility that I will do transfer residence in the near future. People relocate for various reasons- searching for greener pastures, career advancement, new job, health reasons, adventure and the like.

Because relocating always involves transporting things and prized possessions, such activity must be carefully planned. To avoid the usual hassles that go with this activity, it may be prudent to consider hiring reliable professional moving companies. The Texas Movers may be worth a try. Moving things over long distances appears to be their expertise. The Texas Moving Companies likewise offer helpful tips on proper packing of things, legal documents and the like. With its locational ad…

Remembering Our Loved Ones

Tomorrow November 2 is a very special day. People of all walks in lifewill go in droves to cemeteries to visit the graves of their loved ones. This is a day of remembering and praying for our departed parents, siblings, relatives and friends. This is also a day of reminiscing and reliving the past.Remembering and honoring the dead is a noble tradition that allliving should continue to commemorate without fail. We owe it tothe people who loved us, who dearly meant something to us, people who enriched our lives and contributed to who we are today.

On Car repairs and road trip

Suddenly my car airconditioning system conked out. On a hot season, a faulty airconditioning system can be unbearable. A nearby auto repair shop diagnosed that the the compressor had to be replaced which is quite costly. Doubtful and seeking for a second opinion, I went to another shop. The diagnosis-a busted fuse. What a relief. Sounds familiar? To avoid possible rip off, it is prudent that car owners find and patronize competent and trustworthy car repair shops. I wish that our locality have a concentration of several establishments organized like those of Dallas auto repair shops. Lower costs, better service and efficiency usually result with more competition. Knowing where you can have your car be reliably serviced and repaired can mean a lot particularly when you plan to take a long trip. There's nothing that can ruin your mood and schedule during a road trip than a malfunctioning car. Just like a typical car owner, a visit to my trusted repair shops is in order before an…

The Rescue of Chile's Miners

The recent successful rescue of the trapped 33 miners of San Jose Mine in Chile is truly an amazing feat- a triumph of engineering, crisis management and human endurance. That the 33 miners were alive and appears to be in good physical condition after being trapped almost half a kilometer down the dephts of the earth for more than 69 days is even a more greater achievement. The rescue as it unfolds was a gripping spectacle worth watching. I cannot help but mesmerized by the sight of the miners seemingly popping out. It is exhilarating to watch as the miners one by one emerged from the hole to the waiting arms of their loved ones and rescuers. The seemingly pure joy that shines on the faces of the miners and love ones after days of waiting and worries is contagious. You too will feel happy and light as you watched. The Chilean government deserves a pat on the back for transforming what could have been another worse mining disaster into a successful rescue event.

Online Tutoring for Difficult Subjects

My younger sister recently consulted me on certain topics on statistical analysis and Mathematics. She had a hard time understanding absorbing the lecture by her instructors and her reference textbooks were not very helpful. Unfortunately I am not well versed with the said topics and could not offer much to enlighten my dear sister. I passed the same subjects when I was a student but could no longer recall the details. Sounds familiar?

Fortunately online tutoring is available now a days for these difficult subjects.
As I find out,there is an on line tutoring specifically designed to help K-12 and college students. An online tutorial company for instance offers among others instant help on understanding concepts and solving problems related to statistics, mathematics and geometry. For probability related problems, this company developed a Probability calculator method. Tutorial for commonly encountered topics in mathematics like equivalent fractions and Prime Factorization and related…

Providing greater protection to our homes and and loved ones and valued possessions like cars is a goal parents should pursue consistently. And surveillance systems and tracking devices are integral to the total security systems be at home and businesses. Depending on your budget, it pays to priorize acquisitions of these gadgets depending on your need and what will give you greater sense of security and peace of mind.

And in todays computer era and cyberspace predators, the proper use of home computers by children left at home ranks the most. If you find the need to discretely check on what your children or household members are doing and transacting on your computer,at least I learned of one interesting gadget available on the market that may address your need.

One more on Floyd Mayweather, Jr.

I am a self confessed boxing fan.I have witnessed and read the antics and tantrums thrown by boxing supertars.But nothing beats the noise and rubish heaped by Floyd Mayweather Jr.on Manny Pacquaio.

The verbal taunts are below the belt and uncalled for. The rantings unfortunately speaks volume of a scared and a fame jealous fighter. Floyd may fool a few, but not the greater majority of boxing fans. It is clear Floyd is scared stiff to fight the Filipino boxing sensation Manny Pacquaio.

Gentleman Manny Pacquaio has nothing to prove. He has gone up several weigh divisions to fight bigger guys and convincingly whipped them all. If this is not bravery at the exreme then what it is? Looking through Pacquaio's and those of Mayweather Jr's recent fights, it is apparent why Floyd is scared. Floyd's performances on these fights were boring and calculatingly safe.Those of Pacqauiao's were outstanding and exciting to behold. The praises heaped by the veteran sports casters o…

THOUGHTS ON THE MANILA HOSTAGE CRISIS

My sympathy to the families of eight Hongkong nationals who perished in the recent Manila hostage crisis. It was a very sad incident. The casualties were part of a group of 25 tourists riding in bus when taken hostage by a former Manila policeman. Captain Rolando Mendoza, the hostage taker, was earlier dismissed from service due to a robbery extortion case filed against him.

Hostage taking can happen anywhere in the world with even much worse aftermath. However the kind of hostage rescue attempt done by the Manila’s SWAT team could happen only in the Philippines. It would be a pity if it would be duplicated elsewhere. I watched the live coverage of the hostage drama to the end.

Shots inside the bus were heard a few minutes after the brother of the hostage taker was seen on TV confronted and bodily hauled by the police because he was making a scene and uttering insinuations.

It was particularly agonizing to watch the botched rescue attempt. As the scenes unfolded, I could scarcely believe…

The Ubiquitous Mailbox

I find it difficult to think of a household without a mailbox. Be in the city or far flung areas, there it is fronting residence or located at the corner of the property. For as long as we have mail correspondence and magazine subscriptions, we will need this utility box and its importance is not diminished even in this computer age. There will always be mailboxes in residences and in commercial establishments as well. And we will always be visiting the mailboxes to check and collect mail and magazine deliveries. If so isn’t it about time to afford our mailboxes a little importance? In this age of identify thief and high incidence of thievery, it may be wise to consider to replacing our old mailboxes with more secure but affordable mailboxes consistent with the valuables that are expected to be deposited and temporarily stored in them.

Those building their new homes or commercial buildings particularly should consider mailboxes in their master plan. What type and where to locate the ma…

RECENT WEEK END BOXING - NOT SO IMPRESSIVE OVERALL PERFORMANCE OF FOUR FILIPINO BOXERS

The great exploits of the world’s top pound for pound boxer Manny Pacquiao a top the ring certainly boosted the stock of the Filipino (Pinoy) boxers in the world boxing arena particularly among Pinoy’s boxing fans. This appears to rub on the Filipino Boxers. The Pinoy boxers themselves exude pride and confidence whenever they are in a fight as was the case of the four boxers taking on separate foes the past weekend. The result however was not something to crow about though to the credit of the four boxers they gave their all. Of the four only two emerged victorious.

In July 11, 2010, three Pinoy pugs Flash Nonito Donaire, Eden Sonsona and Bernabe Conception took on world rated foes in Puerto Rico. Only Nonito Donaire got to celebrate. Nonito Donaire stopped Hernan Marquez of Mexico in the ninth round retaining his title – WBA Interim Super Flyweight Champion. Nonito Donaire proved too classy, elusive and powerful knocking down Marquez twice with precision and powerful shots. His two ot…

PINOY TRIUMPHS AT THE 2010 WORLD POOL CHAMPIONSHIP

Filipinos again have a reason to celebrate- the victory of Francisco “Django” Bustamante at the recent 2010 World Pool Championship held in Doha, Qatar. As reported in the major newspapers, Bustamante downed Kuo Po-cheng of Chinese Taipeh in the final match at a score of 13-7 finally capturing the crown which eluded him for years. For his effort, Bustamante pocketed the top prize of $ 36, 000.

The victory of Bustamante once again proved the dominance of Pinoys in the sport of Billiard. Bustamante joins four other earlier World Pool titlists- Efren Reyes, Ronnie Alcano, Alex Pagulayan and Rubilen Amit- the women’s 10-ball titlist.

Apparently, Billiard is a sport where height is not might. Filipinos are not known for height. Bustamante, Reyes, Pagulayan, Amit and many other Filipino world class cue artists are not tall players. Top billiard players from other countries like Ralf Souquet and Mika Immonen are not tall either.

Online Master of Arts in Teaching Degree

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of USC. All opinions are 100% mine.It is a given that educators and other people working in the academic world consider a master degree a vital step in attaining career advancement and professional growth. Yet many may have failed or postpone taking this important step in their career.

Precious Gold

Gold readily comes to mind when one thinks of precious metal. No one metal comes close to our consciousness and heart than gold. And most often, gold is associated with jewelries. Rightly so because gold is associated with the things we traditionally and personally value and treasure – gold jewelries, gold coin collections, gold plated watches to name few. Often these valuables are given to us as gifts and bequeaths handed to us from generation to generation. If so desired, the price of gold creations is not beyond reach for most of us. Many though buy them using their hard earned money to pamper themselves. Big gold medallions and necklaces can be seen displayed on the necks of returning overseas Filipino workers. The same are displayed by Indian women and even their men folk during important gatherings.

Gold in its pure form is soft and malleable. Metals like copper, silver, nickel and others have to be alloyed to make the gold perform its intended use. Alloys primarily make the …

Today, they need us the most. The best way to help them is to donate car to charity. Your car donations will help Vietnam War Veterans of America for their benefits that they deserve to have.

Support the freedom defenders of America and say "I will donate my car for the freedom that I am enjoying right now". Help them as they have helped you during those hard times.

World Cup 2010 News

The Swiss shocks the Spaniards in a score of 0:1. This is just like a knock-out punch thrown in boxing. The Spaniard's offense was overwhelming but still the Switzerland team did an amazing job of keeping Spain on their toe.

Life Lost at Winter Olympics

Sad lost for the life lost at Winter Olympics event, a competitor lost his life during his practice. He accidentally bump his head that caused his death. Considerably, we can assume whose fault it is but the fact that a life has been lost is a very sad thing to take it for granted. We should really act little step at a time to see the real causes of the sad event.

Sad day but the officials have said about the contest must go on. Hope the life that has been lost should be remembered always.

Raw Video of Walmart TV Smashed

A quick view of how people do get crazy and smash everything in his path. This wal-mart raw video of a man striking on televisions is alarming to establishments.

How can one stop this kind of act if his choice is really is to smash everything up.
