Facebook's "25 Random Things About Me" Craze and Its Implications

If you're a Facebook user, chances are, you've done it. The social network's "25 Random Things About me" has spread like wildfire online, with millions of people publishing the 25 random facts their friends may or may not know about them. In the spirit of friendship, this is beneficial. But if we will look at it from a different perspective, it may be a cause of concern.

facebook and millions of users, social networking

Boredom,peer pressure, popularity and a sense of obligation are just some fo the factors that have pushed people to respond to the "chain letter." Admittedly,the response was overwhelming and some members of the media even thought about it negatively. They said people has become too narcissistic.

Exposing every little detail about yourself for the world to know can be dangerous. But then, in this time and age, who can vouch that there's still privacy? And besides, a tag like that can give people a respite from their busy or (un)busy lives.

Obama Cartoon in the February 18, 2009 Issue of New York Post

Obama Cartoon. This must be the topic of conversations of most Americans yesterday. Apparently, an editorial cartoon published on the February 18th issue of New York Post presents US President Barack Obama as a monkey. View image below and see for yourself. Isn't it a blatant show of disrespect?

obama cartoon, discrimination, attack against black people

The caption reads: “They’ll have to find someone else to write the next stimulus bill.” Definitely, this satire from the New York Post is disturbing considering the historic racist attacks against African-Americans linking them to monkeys.I won't be surprised if I see more of this in the future from anti-Obama groups.

Nicole Scherzinger Nipple Slip Video Online | Nicole Scherzinger Wardrobe Malfunction during an Amsterdam Concert

Nicole Scherzinger has had an accidental nipple slip during her performance at a concert in Amsterdam recently. The Fil-Am singer was singing Hush Hush (from the latest album of her group Pussy Cat Dolls) when the embarrassing incident happened. As expected, videos of the nipple slip spread to the internet in no time.

Incidents like this are quite common these days. Janet Jackson, Miley Cyrus and others have experienced that while at work. Even our very own Marian Rivera had one during a dance and song number at SOP, a local variety show from the Kapuso channel.Girls, be very very careful with your clothes always.

Joana Pacitti is No Longer Part of American Idol Top 36 Official List

Yes, that's right. She was recently booted out from the contest because she was "ineligible to continue." No exact reason was provided by the American Idol Management, though. She was replaced immediately by Felicia Barton, a married mom from Philadelphia. People are speculating that the reason for the disqualification of Pacitti is that she is already a polished artist, having released an album in 2006 under Geffen Records that sold around 16,000 copies. Pacitti has not yet commented on the issue at the moment.

If the reports were true, then there's no point to appeal the disqualification of Pacitti. American Idol, as we all know, looks for raw talents to polish and not the other way around. :)

Salma Hayek Video Breastfeeding an African Baby

Not all mothers share their milk. But in the case of Hollywood star Salma Hayek, a visit to war-torn Sierra Leone in West Africa made her breastfeed a stranger's baby. The Wild, Wild West star and UNICEF Spokesperson revealed to the press that aside from feeling a bond with the baby, she was inspired by her grandmother who has done the same act before in a Mexican village.

'The baby was perfectly healthy, but the mother did not have any milk," Hayek said. And so, she did the right thing of sharing her milk to the impoverished infant who happens to be sharing the same birth date with her daughter Valentina. Now if only all mothers are as selfless as Hayek, then there will be no unhealthy child in this world.

Disney is releasing the movie in theaters on February 13, 2009. In the Philippines, however, the movie will be hitting the cinemas starting February 18, 2009.

I can't wait to see this movie directed by P.J. Hogan (My Bestfriend's Wedding, Peter Pan). I hope Fisher gives justice to the role of Rebecca Bloomwood whom I loved so much during and after college.

President Gloria Arroyo Attends 57th National Prayer Breakfast | Obama Speaks at the 2009 National Prayer Breakfast in Washington

Before returning to Manila from her first official travel for 2009, President Arroyo attended the 57th National Prayer Breakfast upon invitation by the US House of Congress.The National Prayer Breakfast is a yearly event held in Washington, D.C. every first Thursday of February. This year, US President Barack Obama is one of the guest speakers.

There were reports that PGMA wanted to meet Obama at the event but I found out later on through the news that she wasn't able to talk to him. What she managed to do is look at him from a distance. Well, better luck next time. I'm sure there are lots of other opportunities in the future where PGMA could talk with Obama face to face.

Global financial crisis is the concern of almost everyone this 2009. For a fact, more and more businesses are shutting down their operations, mostly because of inability to achieve their productivity targets. Add to the growing list is Elephant Pharmacy that has gone out of business the other day.


"The Berkeley-based retailer has filed for chapter 7 bankruptcy and has already closed its three stores in Berkeley, San Rafael and Walnut Creek. No details were available on when or how the six-year-old company planned to liquidate its inventories, but at the Walnut Creek store, many products have been out of stock for some time."

BusinessesElephant Pharmacy is not that big and strong like an elephant, after all.
