HIV - from death sentence to chronic disease

Image
A record 204 new  cases of HIV were reported last month. This is the highest number of cases ever, with approximately seven new cases a day. This is in contrast to one new case every three days in the year 2000. This unpredecented increase in incidence has led to the declaration of an AIDS epidemic last year.

The Philippines is one of only seven countries in the world to have seen a significant increase in cases in the last eight years. While most countries in the world are reporting steady or even decreasing case numbers, HIV infections in the Philippines are up more than 80%. While just over 7,000 cases have been reported since 1984, more than half of these were diagnosed only in the last four years.



And yet, not all news is bad. While no practical cure exists currently, modern treatment for HIV, termed highly active antiretroviral treatment, or HAART, has been shown to restore life expectancy if it is started early enough. On top of this finding, starting HAART early in HIV-infected …

Red Hot Chili Peppers performed in Hong Kong last August 9 at AsiaWorldArena with Special Guest, The Mars Volta. Definitely one of the hottest and biggest band, a first night in Asia promoting their 10th album, I'm With You.

What made it so memorable is when they dedicated one song for the Filipinos. Luckily, the band is a big fan of Manny Pacquiao. Rico Blanco went to Hong Kong and interviewed the band members. Fortunately, we got a copy of the whole article.

On the video we have seen at Warner Music Philippines; the band talked about the preparations they've made on the latest album.

Blogging And Big Businesses

As the internet continues to grow, more and more companies have ben taking to cyberspace to reach more people. And in here, the battle to become the first one to be seen by the web browsing public has also become even more intense. Thus, blogging has become the latest buzz among those in the online marketing scene same goes with Social Networking Sites like Facebook and Twitter.



However, as it turns out, many of the larger companies today are actually still pretty much scratching their heads as to what blogging really is. While they are spending millions of dollars on online adverthing and promotions, they are, in fact, still in the dark as to what the whole thing does. Thus, many of them make rather costly mistakes and don't get the results they want.

One of the most common points that many big business heads don't clearly understand is what really is the purpose of blogging. Many of them often only think that optimization is only all about getting your site on to the top of th…

Bamboo's First Single - Questions #bamboomusiclive

Bamboo Knows "No water no moon"

I am so happy that Bamboo has new single entitled "Questions" which premiere worldwide through radio and on his official website. Yes, that is right - you can hear his new single online by visiting his site at http://www.bamboomusiclive.com/



From one spin of the most anticipated album in OPM rock this year, "No water, No Moon", Bamboo Manalac's first solo release under Polyeast Records is obvious that for him there would be life beyond his career as a frontman. Teamed with the top players in the music industry, he presents his musical visions that go beyond his craft and said "Nothing's changed. It's the same pressure that I've always put on myself. Whether in a band or going out on my own, or whatever I do. Just wanting to push, claw and climb."

In one way, Manalac is getting back to his jazz roots, and in another way he's heading toward to what he's known for-mainstream pop genre. Featuring …

Surprisingly, Many reacted on the New Facebook Changes

Image
It was the other day when people were confused and discovered the new changes of their Facebook page and hated it for a while. I'm quite suprised when I saw the news feed and the ticker which made me think if my account is still controllable.

Until Facebook announced the changes they've made, and said:
When you pick up a newspaper after not reading it for a week, the front page quickly clues you into the most interesting stories. In the past, News Feed hasn't worked like that. Updates slide down in chronological order so it's tough to zero in on what matters most.

Now, News Feed will act more like your own personal newspaper. You won't have to worry about missing important stuff. All your news will be in a single stream with the most interesting stories featured at the top. If you haven't visited Facebook for a while, the first things you'll see are top photos and statuses posted while you've been away. They're marked with an easy-to-spot blue corner.

It was December 2010 last year when I first experience eating at Bon Chon in Ayala Triangle in Makati. We have tried Bon Chon's special chicken recipe: spicy, sweet and soy garlic. Bon Chon is an international franchise whose specialty is Korean chicken wings. Since then, it was also tagged as the best chicken in America quoted from the New York Times, Esquire, GQ Magazine and now finally it invaded Manila.

What's the secret recipe? Yes, it was really addicting eating those pieces of chicken wings on our plate and we keep on asking for more. Its natural ingredients and the way it was being prepared; is the most special part of how it is being cooked to produce a healthy-yet-tasty chicken for all ages.
