PUBLIC NOTICE DON’T BE JUDGMENTAL (NO HATERS PLEASE!!!)


▪️Kung nagpo-post sya nang mga rants or hinanakit nya sa buhay, hayaan mo sya kesa ma-depress yan. Kanya-kanya tayo ng outlet sa buhay e. Bakit hindi mo hayaan maglabas nang sama nang loob at least may mga makakausap sya at may matutunan din ang iba. Hindi mo alam ang pinagdadaanan nya.
▪️Kung nagpo-post sila ng masarap na food at kumakain sila hayaan mo sila maging masaya dahil busog sila, e di kumain ka din. Hindi mo alam- baka un lang ang afford nila na pampasaya. 😂😂😂
▪️Kung pala-upload sila nang picture/selfies nila hayaan mo sila kaya nga FACEBOOK NYA UN eh. HINDI nila kasalanan na ayaw mo mag-selfie. HINDI din mentally disturbed at mababaw ang mga nagse-selfie tulad ng paniniwala mo. 😂😂😂😂
▪️Kung nagpo-post sya ng benta nya sa fb, hayaan mo sya, gusto nya mag hanapbuhay-ng marangal kaysa mabaon pa sa utang.
▪️Isa pa kung nag-uupload sila ng mga achievements nila sa buhay hayaan mo na lang. Proud lang sila sa sarili nila wag tayong maiinggit bagkus gawin natin inspirasyon. Be happy for them walang mawawala sayo. At wag mo naman hilingin na PULUTIN SILA SA KANGKUNGAN. 😊
▪️Kung nagsi-share sila ng words of God/ Bible Verses o quotes – hayaan mo sila, hindi ka pinatatamaan, instead they want to encourage and lift you up. And it does not mean na pa-Holy, religious o poetic. Tandaan ang Diyos lang ang nakakaalam kung anong laman ng puso at isipan mo.
I-share mo na lang din para happy.
▪️At kung nakakabili sila ng mga bagay na di mo nabibili pabayaan mo sila pinaghirapan nila yun kaya gusto nila ipagmalaki bagkus gawin mo ulit inspirasyon na kung nabili nila bakit di mo kayang bilhin. At kung kaya mo naman bilhin pero ayaw mo lang i-post-choice mo yan- still pabayaan mo na lang sila sa kaligayahan nila 😊
▪️At kung nakaka-travel sila pabayaan mo baka gusto lang nilang mag unwind para kahit papano mabawasan mga hinanakit nila sa buhay. Makapagliwaliw pantanggal stress and to create happy memories with their family or friends.
▪️At kung nagpo-post sila ng pictures ng happy family , happy couples at happy relationships, pinaghirapan nila to achieve those happiness. Di mo alam pinagdaanan nila sa likod ng bawat happy picture they post. Mga iniyak nila sa bawat ngiti at halakhak.
✔️Sana, wag tayong masyadong pakialamero, apektado o judgmental sa posts ng iba at sa buhay nang ibang tao, para di tayo mag mukhang bitter at inggitera. As long as di ka nila natatapakan o sinasaktan, let them be. Hindi lahat kelangan naaayon sa gusto mo.
✔️At pinaka-importante-HINDI mo yan account, account nila yan.😆
Copy then paste, ni-repost lang din 😊

Peace&Love

WHO’s standard recommendations for the general public to reduce exposure and transmission of a range of illnesses

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” -Stitch in time saves nine”

“FOR NOVEL CORONA VIRUS PREVENTION IS BETTER BECAUSE THERE IS NO CURE” A little precaution before a crisis occurs is preferable to a lot of fixing up afterward.

WHO’s standard recommendations for the general public to reduce exposure to and transmission of a range of illnesses are as follows, which include hand and respiratory hygiene, and safe food practices:

  • Frequently clean hands by using alcohol-based hand rub or soap and water;
  • When coughing and sneezing cover mouth and nose with flexed elbow or tissue – throw tissue away immediately and wash hands;
  • Avoid close contact with anyone who has fever and cough;
  • If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing seek medical care early and share previous travel history with your health care provider;
  • When visiting live markets in areas currently experiencing cases of novel coronavirus, avoid direct unprotected contact with live animals and surfaces in contact with animals;
  • The consumption of raw or undercooked animal products should be avoided. Raw meat, milk or animal organs should be handled with care, to avoid cross-contamination with uncooked foods, as per good food safety practices.
    • Protect yourself and others from getting sick

RECOMMENDATIONS AND ADVICE

During previous outbreaks due to other coronavirus (Middle-East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS)), human to human transmission occurred through droplets, contact and fomites, suggesting that the transmission mode of the 2019-nCoV can be similar. The basic principles to reduce the general risk of transmission of acute respiratory infections include the following:

• Avoiding close contact with people suffering from acute respiratory infections.
• Frequent hand-washing, especially after direct contact with ill people or their environment.
• Avoiding unprotected contact with farm or wild animals.
• People with symptoms of acute respiratory infection should practice cough etiquette (maintain distance, cover
coughs and sneezes with disposable tissues or clothing, and wash hands).
• Within healthcare facilities, enhance standard infection prevention and control practices in hospitals, especially in
emergency departments.
WHO does not recommend any specific health measures for travellers. In case of symptoms suggestive of respiratory illness either during or after travel, the travellers are encouraged to seek medical attention and share their travel history with their health care provider. Travel guidance was updated on 24 January.

STAY HEALTHY WHILE TRAVELLING

Doctor’s advice about Novel Coronavirus:

1. It is pretty large in size (cell is about 400-500nm diameter), so any normal mask (not just the N95 feature) should be able to filter it out. However, when someone who’s infected sneezes in front of you, it will take a great 3 meters (about 10 feet) before it drops to the ground and is no longer airborne.

2. When the virus drops on metal surface, it will live for at least 12 hours. So remember if you come in contact with any metal surface, wash your hands with soap thoroughly.

3. The virus can remain active on fabric for 6-12 hours. Normal laundry detergent should kill the virus. For winter clothing that does not require daily washing, you can put it out under the sun to kill the virus.

About the symptoms of the pneumonia caused by Coronavirus:

1. It will first infect the throat, so the throat will have the dry sore throat feeling which will last for 3 to 4 days

2. Then the virus will blend into the nasal fluid and drips into the trachea and enter the lungs, causing pneumonia. This process will take 5 to 6 days.

3. With pneumonia, comes high fever and difficulty in breathing. The nasal congestion is not like the normal kind. You will feel like you are drowning in water. It’s important to go seek immediate medical attention if you feel like this.

About prevention:

1. The most common way of getting infected is by touching things in public, so you must wash your hands frequently. The virus can only live on your hands for 5-10 mins, but a lot can happen in those 5-10 mins (you can rub your eyes or pick your nose unwittingly).

2. Aside from washing your hands frequently, you can gargle with strong mouthwash to eliminate or minimize the germs while they are still in your throat (before dripping down to your lungs).

Folks, take extra care and drink plenty of water

How to stay Healthy in the Call Center Industry

(Philippines) Recently health officials reminded workers in Cebu’s business process outsourcing (BPO) sector to be more mindful of their lifestyle choices following the release of a study that shows call center agents may be exposed to more health risks due to the nature of their work. However, this wake-up call is not only intended for Cebu’s BPO call agent only it’s intended for all Call Center agents all over the Philippines.

With the rapidly increasing call center industry, more and more people are engaged in countless hours of grueling training and practicing on how to handle calls, file reports, schedule personnel and inventory checks, and more. With globalization, the different call centers required shifts even during the graveyard time frame, which means that call center agents would have to endure the normal sleeping hours working just to accommodate transaction calls from halfway around the world. Staying healthy in the call center industry is simple and defined into four simple keywords: coffee, cigarette, alcohol, and sex.

Coffee

With the long continuous and tedious hours in which the agent endures sitting idly talking to a headset, it would definitely cause the body to slow down and lessen the person’s capability to circulate the blood within. This causes a reflex action of yawning, which signifies a greater need for oxygen in the respiratory – cardiovascular area. It would also manifest a sense of sleepiness.

As a result of this common phenomenon, coffee has been one of the mainstays of the call center agents, and personnel’s alike to combat sleepiness and degradation of competent performance. Even if the direct effect of coffee on the body is to keep us awake, there are detrimental effects of too much coffee such as possible kidney complications and dehydration.

Lessening the amount of coffee per day would also lessen the amount of urged moments for the agent to go to the bathroom. Furthermore, lessening of bone density has been found on chronic coffee drinkers.

Cigarette:

Another avenue for stress release of agents in the call center industry is by lighting up a cigarette or two during break time or lunch hour. Many of these agents claim that the habit of lighting up a cigarette during a free time not only increases their social sphere but also lessens their anxiety and work-related stressors.

However, we all know the negative effects of cigarettes on the lungs and body of a smoker. For one, the smoke coming from the cigarettes passes through our respiratory system. This smoke is a combination of impure particles which we allow to reach our lungs and attach to our bronchioles. A gradual and significant blocking of the smoke in the linings of the bronchioles would lessen the amount of oxygen exchanged between, which causes us to have difficulty in breathing.

Alcohol

After work shift hours, one of the usual stress release methods of agents is to go to the local hangout place and have a round or two of alcoholic drinks. This happens especially when salaries have been doled out. However, when alcohol is excessively ingested, could damage the liver. The liver is man’s natural fat and alcohol synthesizer. An excessive alcohol load on the liver to synthesize in frequency may cause the liver to a malfunction or lead to alcohol-induced cirrhosis.

Sex

The dramatic increase in the number of Human Immuno-deficiency Virus/Acquired Immuno-deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) cases rose from 528 in 2008 to an alarming 709 cases last year. Lack of HIV awareness and “risky behavior” may be the common reasons for contracting HIV. Their behavior in having sex with multiple partners, engaging in unprotected sex, sharing of syringes, having sex with the same sex and engaging in casual sex is considered one of the reasons call center agent is included in the list of majority HIV infected individuals.

These four things are the main culprits in lessening the health status of call center agents. Staying healthy in this concept would entail being able to say no or lessen these four culprits. Staying in the call center industry is technically a tedious and health taxing job to undergo, especially due to the high demand for work. Nevertheless, substitutes for these may come in the form of healthy fruit juice, or eat healthy foods; healthy lifestyle and regular exercise. It is a matter of initiative and choice for one to stay healthy when faced with a situation, and lastly, abstinence is the best way not to acquire the AIDS virus. If abstinence is hard, then stick to partners that you personally know and practice same-sex. High ethical sensibility is also significant to get rid of the temptations. Finally, one has to have the common sense to regulate his lifestyle even in an irregular situation.

SWOT Analysis for Process Improvement.


SWOT analysis consists of four components: Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities & Threats.

Strengths: characteristics of the business or project that give it an advantage over others.
Weaknesses: characteristics of the business that place the business or project at a disadvantage relative to others.
Opportunities: elements in the environment that the business or project could exploit to its advantage.
Threats: elements in the environment that could cause trouble for the business or project.

The first step is to identify the strengths of the process, people and products as it relates to the improvement initiative. Identify both tangible and intangible factors; not situational strengths but rather factors over which you can control. The key here is ‘control’ and means internal factors. It usually means internal to the organization but when improving processes, it can be internal to a business unit, department, geographic location, etc.

Second step is and in a similar fashion, look at the weaknesses of process, people and products. Weaknesses are factors that are within your control that detract from delivering value without significant waste. Ask: why are we doing this project?

Third steps is to switch to the opportunities. What is the targeted improvement? What opportunity are you trying to seize? Why are you doing this now? These questions will help identify the key opportunities. In the traditional SWOT, the opportunities portion of the analysis usually refers to external opportunities. In process improvement initiatives, it can be this or internal opportunities as well.


And last . . . address the threats. Ask: what will happen if this process (or product) is not improved. What will be, or has been, the consequences of not improving the situation. Be specific and as detailed as possible. This also is traditionally external threats but as with the opportunities, it can be this or internal threats to the organization.


SWOT analysis aims to identify the key internal and external factors seen as important to achieving an objective. SWOT analysis groups key pieces of information into two main categories:

  1. Internal factors — the strengths and weaknesses internal to the organization
  2. External factors — the opportunities and threats presented by the environment external to the organization

The organization can only act on strengths and weaknesses. The ultimate goal of the SWOT Matrix is to determine exactly how best to utilize your strengths to maximize opportunities and get rid of threats. On the other hand, it serves to determine actions so that your weaknesses do not destroy the opportunities or, worst, become even more destructive threats.

Try to avoid complexity and don’t over analyze things. It’s good to keep your SWOT analysis short and simple. Definitely build different strategies and options based on your SWOT analysis.

Quote to live by:
It is important to know the art of strengthening your strengths
which would enable to weaken your weaknesses
and also lay the foundation for availing the opportunities
and negating the threats that come your way. V Munsif.

Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.

Proverbs 3:5-6:“Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.”

We all want God to answer our prayers. We believe in the power of prayer, but when it comes down to our own individual lives and problems, we often don’t have the faith to believe that God will answer. Unbelief and independence trap us. But God wants to enlarge our territory and bless us with increase, because His nature is to bless. Our lack of faith and our fear of stepping out in dependence on Him are what get in the way. The truth is that the things we do for God should be outside of our own abilities; they should be evidence that we are trusting in His supernatural ability.

When we back away from dependence, we are not living by faith. We need to be willing to attempt things big enough that unless God steps in, we are sure to fail. Faith is like jumping out of an airplane at fifteen thousand feet. If God doesn’t catch you, you will fall and crash. But how do you know unless you jump? This is the kind of faith and dependence He is looking for in our lives. Remember the prayer of Jabez in 1 Chronicles 4:10:
“Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, ‘Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from harm so that I will be free from pain.’ And God granted his request.”

Jabez cried out to God to enlarge his territory and bless him. He cried out for God’s hand to be with him. Jabez was greatly blessed by God because he didn’t let obstacles become larger than his faith. He knew the character of God and that He loved to bless. We, too, are made for destiny. We have a God-inspired desire to impact our world. Created for something bigger than ourselves, we are designed to touch a lost world. We long to make an impact on our land for eternity, whether it is where we work, live or minister.

But in reality most of us are afraid to step out by faith.

What step of faith is God asking you to take today? Will you put everything into His almighty hands, adjust your life to what you are praying for, and step out by faith in whatever way He leads? When you do this, you become dependent in His dependable hands. He is waiting for your invitation to enlarge your faith.

Gracious Father, as we begin a new day, help us to engage your will with a reckless faith. Teach us to trust in you, and help us grow in righteousness. Heavenly Lord, give us the courage to step out in faith this day. Fill our hearts with your spirit, and let us speak your words with pride.

Twisted

If something happens by a twist of fate, it happens by chance, and it is strange, interesting, or unfortunate in some way. >>> In nature, we rarely see straight lines. Organic materials tend to have natural curves to them, a natural movement to their form. Snail shells, like the one pictured below, twist as they grow. The center tip of the spiral — the apex — is composed of the snail’s original, baby shell. I find this to be delightfully symbolic of life itself — the path and process of growth being anything but straight and direct.

This week, show us something that doesn’t maintain a straight line.

Five Sci-Fi Books That Are More Relevant Now Than Ever

There’s an old saying that I’m certain you’ve heard before: “May you live in interesting times.” The phrase is a translation of a Chinese curse, because peace, harmony, all those niceties make for a dull existence.

Another Good Deed Goes Noticed — notquiteold

I stopped for gas a few days ago at one of the busiest gas stations near my home. So, yes, it was a Cumberland Farms. I don’t really know if these convenience stores exist all over the country or just in New England, but if you aren’t familiar with Cumby’s, let me just say that […]
