Trump Jr meets Russian lawyer

This is a hot news item in CNN. I wonder why it's such a big news about the secret meeting of Donald Trump, Jr. with the Russian lawyer. And now the name of Jared Kushner is being included in the rap sheet because Kushner is a senior adviser of the president? Yeah, Kushner is the president' son-in-l...

Re: How often do you go to the movies?

Movie tickets are getting expensive in this part of the world. It used to be a hundred pesos but now it’s more than 200, that’s about $5 for one movie ticket. A family of 4 would have to shell $20 just for the tickets and that’s a pretty big amount especially for the regular wager earner. The other ...

Re: Do you prefer cars, trucks, jeeps, motorcycles, or SUVs?

Our first brand new vehicle is an SUV. Far from our previous car, the SUV is more comfortable because the seat is upright unlike the car where the seat makes me slouch. The view is better because the SUV is higher. But the best aspect is its power. It responds quicker than the car. The downside is t...

Dandruff control

I get a visit by the dandruff every time the cold season comes in. As per my research, the scalp gets so dry when it is cold hence the surface gets flaky that results in dandruff which is very itchy at times. It was an accident when I discovered that coconut oil is a good medium in controlling dandr...

Re: How many hours on the internet..

In normal times, I spent about 2 hours a day in the internet that’s mostly for earning money. With my leisure time in the social media, I try to cut it down to 30 minutes at the most per day because I don’t want to waste time. Social media is for socializing but most of the posts there are nonsense....

SSD – solid state drive

I am researching about the SSD (solid state drive) as a competition of the more common HDD (hard disk drive). The advantage in SSD is that it has no moving parts hence the wear and tear is not much of an issue unlike the HDD which has a motor that spins the disk when accessed. However, the HDD is al...

Where is the 3D printer going?

I have read in one article that the 3D printer was used to make a gun by an ordinary boy. He just printed the photo of a gun and the 3D printer came up with an entire shape of the gun. And although the 3D printer’s output is plastic, it is already the mold and can be copied into the metal. That mean...

Re: World War 3

When I was in high school, that was the era of the cold war and the prospect of World War 3 between the US and its allies against the USSR (Union of Soviet Socialist Russia). But the anticpated war did not materialize. As I see it now, a World War 3 can happen between US and China that would also in...

Climate Change

I have been reading articles and columns in the newspaper that the climate change issue is just a hype to get attention and funding. There is no climate change according to one respectable newspaper columnist here. What about Al Gore’s pronouncement, was it meant to just make him popular again? They...
