Five Vietnamese were caught by the authorities in two separate operations in Butuan City after being caught with kilos of agarwood wedges from the Lapnisan tree which is illegally cut down.

It is strictly prohibited to cut down Lapnisan trees as they are already endangered or seriously at the risk of extinction.

The extract from the agarwood is used to make perfumes, incense, and a lot of other natural medicines for different types of illnesses.

In some instances, the high-quality agarwood could go as high as $100,000 per kilo.

The Vietnamese, who were caught in joint operations by the Police Regional Office in Caraga (PRO-13) and the region’s Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR-13), were in possession of over P1 million worth of Agarwood and around P5.8 million in cash.

All of them were arrested at the Grand Palace Hotel in Purok 1, Barangay Imadejas, Butuan City on the 25th of July near midnight.

Newborn Baby Went Permanently Blind After a Family Friend Took A Photo of Him 

A three-month-old baby, above, has been left blind after a family friend forgot to turn off the flash on a camera.

Babies are cute and adorable; we all know that. Just a bit curve of their lips gives us fulfillment and happiness after a tiring day.

Bearing irresistible cuteness, us adults had this urge to take pictures of them so that we could have something to look at when they grow. But little do we know that camera flash and innovative gadgets today inflict dangers to our babies?

Have you ever thought of the usual warning when visiting newborn babies? To turn off the camera flash when taking a picture of them? Probably some of us did. One newborn baby from China got his one eye blinded after a family friend took a picture of him. The so-called friend holds the phone ten inches away from the baby because he wants to take a closer photo of the baby.

Unfortunately, the family friend forgot to turn off the camera flash and capture the photo. In an instant, the parents of the baby noticed something unusual in regards to the baby’s vision right after the photo was taken. The story was featured at People’s Daily Online.

The strong flash has damaged cells on the macula, the part of the eye where incoming light rays are focused 

Worst, the left eye had reduced vision while the right eye got blinded permanently- such an unfortunate event for the innocent baby. According to the attending doctor, the camera flash caused permanent damage to the baby’s macula. When the kid reaches the age of four, the damage inflicted in the macula might cause damage to the central vision.

Warning to parents 

According to eye experts, babies are vulnerable to strong lights; hence keep in mind not only camera flash but strong lights from the bathroom during bath. There are no released statement from the parents if they will make a move to sue the family friend who caused heartbreaking unfortunate to their child.

The First Human Head Transplant Was Successful?

Admin 10:20:00 PM

If you had a head transplant, would you still be you?
This may sound like a hypothetical question, but it's not! It's not even a scene out of a science fiction movie.

A human head transplant is exactly what it sounds like taking one living head and putting it onto a new body. And this is what the Italian neurosurgeon Sergio Canavero and his colleague Xiaoping Ren's of China is planning to do.

In fact, they already performed a head transplant on a dead body.
But just how feasible is human head transplant?

A head transplant was considered the stuff of science fiction, until 2015.

This was when Dr. Canavero announced that he would perform a head transplant on a living individual. He even found a volunteer who was a 30-year-old Russian man Valey Spiridonov.

Viral ang isang Kasal sa Benguet na mga Gulay ang ginawang dekorasyon

Admin 12:58:00 AM

Sa halip kasi na mga bulaklak ang dekorasyon sa simbahan ay mga berdeng gulay ang ginamit.

Ang nilakaran ng bride, mga abay, ninong at ninang ay may mga gulay rin tulad ng repolyo, broccoli at cauliflower.

Ayon sa mag asawang sina Claver at Fleann Molot, idea raw ito ng kanilang tiyahin.
Hindi naman raw nila ito tinanggihan dahil bukod sa kakaiba ito ay pagsasaka rin ng gulay ang kanilang ikinabubuhay.

Masaya ang mag asawa dahil hindi nila akalaing mapapansin ang kanilang simpleng kasal hanggang sa mag viral ito sa social media.

Ayon pa sa mag asawa, hindi naman raw nasayang ang mga gulay na ginamit na dekorasyon dahil ipinamigay ito sa mga dumalo sa kasalan.

Malaki rin raw ang kanilang natipid dahil hindi na sila bumili ng iba pang palamuti.

BB Gandanghari will be a part of a show in Netflix - Glow

A familiar face caught the attention of Filipino fans of Netflix comedy series "Glow".
Transgender actress BB Gandanghari appeared in the eighth episode of the series' third season, portraying the role of "Patricia," a fortune teller.
In her appearance, Gandanghari, who is now based in the US, shared a scene with Alison Brie who plays Ruth "Zoya the Destroya" Wilder, one of the show's main characters.
Glow, which debuted in 2017, tells the story of a group of women performing for a wrestling organization in Los Angeles in the 80's.
On Instagram, the actress shared her excitement for her appearance in the Netflix series.
In September 2017, Gandanghari announced she has signed with The Brogan Agency, a California-based talent agency which represents film, television, commercial, print, and theater actors.
In 2016, Gandanghari officially became woman after her petition to change her name and gender was approved by a court in California, where she has been living for years.

An asteroid larger than some of the worlds tallest buildings will pass the Earth next month

Admin 11:52:00 PM

(CNN) — On September 14, an asteroid will pass by Earth that's larger than some of the tallest buildings on the planet.
Asteroid 2000 QW7 is estimated to be between 290 meters and 650 meters in diameter, or between 951 and 2,132 feet, according to NASA. The world's tallest building is the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, which reaches 2,717 feet tall. The second tallest building is the Shanghai Tower at 2,073 feet.

The asteroid will be traveling at 14,361 miles per hour when it passes within 3,312,944 miles of Earth at 7:54 p.m. ET.
Astronomers don't believe the asteroid poses any danger, but NASA's Center for Near Earth Object Studies is tracking it.
In June, astronomers showed that telescopes could provide enough warning to allow people to move away from an asteroid strike on Earth.
Astronomers at the University of Hawaii used the ATLAS and Pan-STARRS survey telescopes to detect a small asteroid before it entered Earth's atmosphere on the morning of June 22.
The asteroid, named 2019 MO, was 13 feet in diameter and 310,685 miles from Earth. The ATLAS facility observed it four times over 30 minutes around midnight in Hawaii.
Initially, the Scout impact analysis software at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory deemed the potential impact as a 2. For reference, 0 is "unlikely" and 4 is "likely." Davide Farnocchia, navigation engineer at JPL, requested additional observations because he noticed a detection near Puerto Rico 12 hours later.
The Pan-STARRS telescope was also operating and captured part of the sky where the asteroid could be seen.
The additional images from the Pan-STARRS telescope helped researchers better determine the entry path for the asteroid, which bumped the Scout rating to 4.
The calculation matched up, and weather radar in San Juan detected the asteroid as it burned up in our atmosphere. It entered the atmosphere over the ocean, 236 miles south of the city.
ATLAS, which is two telescopes 100 miles apart on the Big Island and Maui, scans the entire sky every two nights for asteroids that could impact Earth. It can spot small asteroids half a day before they arrive at Earth and could point to larger asteroids days before.
Although much of the knowledge of their capabilities and determinations about the asteroid was worked out after the fact, astronomers believe that ATLAS and Pan-STARRS could help predict more in the future.

SOGIE Bill advocate says that gender of new born babies should not be labeled on birth certificates

Admin 2:06:00 AM

An advocate of the SOGIE Bill said that parents should not assume the gender of the newborn baby because someday they might learn that their guess may be wrong.

During the Senate Committee hearing on the said bill, Lagalab LGBT Network President Naomi Fontanos showed a presentation to the lawmakers explaining the difference between gender identity and biological characteristics.

“Example, I identify myself as a transwoman, my gender identity is female, but I’m attracted to males for now… so currently I’m exclusively heterosexual identifying,” Fontanos said.
“But I have sisters or transwomen just like me who are attracted to other women,” she added.

She mentioned the case of Angelina Mead King who kept her relationship with her wife Joey Mead who’s a female despite coming out as a trans woman.
After the presentation, Senator Nancy Binay who was very curious about the topic asked Fontanos
Binay asked the difference between her as a person born as a female who’s attracted to male and other gender identities.

“Ma’am you were born a baby and you are assigned as female at birth, but your gender identity matches your gender assignment at birth,” Fontanos told Binay.

The Senator followed it up with a question asking Fontanos if she wants to stop labeling the gender of babies in their birth certificate after they were born.

The LGBTQ+ advocate answered it by saying that as much as possible people should not assume the baby’s gender by putting Male or Female on their birth certificates.

“In our case as trans people, as a transwoman, I was assigned male at birth. It was incorrect, it was just a guess and it was a wrong guess. gender assignment is predictive, it is not final,” 

Fontanos added that in some first world countries like New Zealand and Australia, the parents could now choose if they wanted to include the gender of their baby on their birth certificate.

According to her, some parents in the said countries may put “x” or “double dash” to the gender information of their baby to show that they’re not assuming the gender of their child.

The same system also applied to their passports so they could address their gender freely.
“Basta if the x or double dash is indicated, therefore they’re not male or female. So if they pass the immigration for example or having a business, then the people doing business with them have to ask ‘how would you like to be addressed, how would you like to be called?'” she said.

7 Lessons Entrepreneurs Can Learn From Manny Pacquiao

A fight between Pacquiao & Mayweather was a great example of strategy vs passion – and the fact that sometimes fighting the smart fight can get you to where you need to be.

While Mayweather’s technical fighting tactics might not have been uber-entertaining, (and certainly didn’t achieve the dramatic pinnacle of the 2012 fight between Pacquiao and Marquez) – he managed to keep Manny’s aggression at bay and control both the pace of the fight and the judges’ verdict

Manny said it best with this quote, “With experience in boxing, you learn how to be a scientific boxer and how to fight easy.”

As an entrepreneur – I know that playing it safe is not an option, that if I’m going to fight, then I’m going in for the KO, and that if I fail spectacularly, it will be an honourable failure in pursuit of the big win.

So for all the Pacquiao fans and entrepreneurs out there, here are 7 lessons we can learn from the indomitable spirit of Manny ‘Pacman’ Pacquiao:

1. Focus, focus, focus.
 “I don’t look ahead… I keep focused on my next opponent. I am looking forward to my next opponent, I don’t think past that point.”
2. Have immense self-belief (and faith in something more).
 “Only in death will I relinquish my belts.”
3. It’s not just about you.
 “I remember as a little boy I ate one meal a day and sometimes slept in the street. I will never forget that and it inspires me to fight hard, stay strong and remember all the people of my country, trying to achieve better for themselves.”

4. Let your team do their thing.
 “All those who are around me are the bridge to my success, so they are all important.”

5. Stay grounded. Always.
 “I was just doing my job in the ring and doing my best to make people happy.”

6. It’s about performance.
 “I thought I won the fight. He didn’t do nothing, he always runs”, Pacquiao said. “I got him many times with solid punches … I can handle his power.”
“Boxing is not about your feelings. It’s about performance”

7. Stay hungry and humble.
 “Don’t fear failure, in great attempts, it is glorious even to fail.” – Bruce Lee
