Before you Trust!!!

hello everybody i miss blogging, just don't have enough time but i will try again to give time and share whats in my mind.

Life in states or i will say abroad is much different than at home. To remind each and everyone before we trust, we need to know the person well and be careful to all the words that we say. We don't know or assume every individuals attitude or character not unless we know them for years, but even though you think you know them sometimes we are still wrong. Sad to say we can't please everybody.

For us not to feel bad and be hurt by other people we think we can trust... We must think and always be careful...

Call from the future!!!

Did you experienced a call from the future? It's really strange to received misscalls from the future. Not only once but twice! The first misscall was dated May 2, 2009 and its call time is 7:45 PM. The second misscall I received was dated May 2, 2009 and time was 6:30 PM. The number that calls me was my husband's office phone. Actually the date was my Mama's birthday. Do you have any idea what the calls means. I'm just curious to know. Hoping somebody can tell me the meaning of this call from the future.

3. Drop on hands and knees and crawl to the nearest exit.

4. Go the meeting place that you and your family have planned. (Establish a safe meeting place away from the house. It prevents family members from searching for one another or re-entering the building.)

5. Study exits before a fire strikes. (Explore the building beforehand so that every exit is familiar. If a hallway becomes smoke-filled, memory can help in finding the exits.)

Fire Safety Tips For Your Home

Every household needs a smoke detector outside of each sleeping area and also on every level of the house, including the basement. Test smoke detectors once a month -- always keep new batteries on hand and replace them once a year, even if it isn't necessary. Teach your children about smoke detectors. Let them help test the detectors, so they recognize the alarm. Follow up by practicing your escape route.

Teach children that if they find matches, they should tell an adult the location right away.

Make sure a household member is trained to use the fire extinguisher -- the ideal place for the extinguisher is in the kitchen.

Draw a simple picture of your home. Plan at least two escape routes from your home and two ways to get out of every room. Decide who will take charge of each child. Show children who live in high-rise buildings the shortest route to a safe exit. Warn them not to use the elevator.

Pick a safe place outside to meet family members after escaping from a fire -- remember, get out and call 911 -- do not try to put out the fire yourself and do not go back inside for any reason. Conduct a home fire drill at least twice a year, and do it at night, when most deadly fires occur.

Do you have a number on the front of your house? Can the number be seen easily from the street during the day and night? This is very important in case the driver of a fire truck or ambulance needs to find your house quickly. House numbers can be purchased at a low cost from a hardware store.

Real fires are FAST. In a few minutes your whole house could be on fire. Temperatures can be more than 600 degrees. You may not be able to breathe or see anything.

Each year, fires and burns kill hundreds of children and permanently scar thousands, yet more fire victims die from the smoke than flames. Smoke can overwhelm a child or adult in minutes.

Get out fast; seconds count. Phone for help from a neighbor's home, not from inside a burning building. Cover your mouth and nose. Crawl low under the smoke to the nearest exit.

Test the door before opening it. If it's hot or there's smoke, use another way out.

Once out, stay out. There's nothing more important in your home than you. If someone is missing, tell a firefighter immediately. Gather at your designated meeting place, and NEVER go back into a burning building.

If your clothing catches on fire, STOP. Running fans the flames, making fire burn faster. Shout for help. Don't run for help. Drop to the floor and cover your face. Roll back and forth to put out flames. Cool a burn with cool water.

Crab Mentality

The term “crab mentality” is used to describe a kind of selfish, short-sighted thinking which runs along the lines of “if I can't have it, neither can you.” This term is especially widely used among Filipinos, who use it specifically to refer to people who pull other people down, denigrating them rather than letting them get ahead or pursue their dreams. As a general rule, an accusation of having a crab mentality is a poor reflection on someone's personality.

This concept references an interesting phenomenon which occurs in buckets of crabs. If one crab attempts to escape from a bucket of live crabs, the other crabs will pull it back down, rather than allowing it to get free. Sometimes, the crabs seem almost malicious, waiting until the crab has almost escaped before yanking it back into the pot. All of the crabs are undoubtedly aware of the fact that their fate is probably not going to be very pleasurable, so people are led to wonder why they pull each other back into the bucket, instead of congratulating the clever escape artist.

This term is broadly associated with short-sighted, non-constructive thinking rather than a unified, long-term, constructive mentality. It is also often used colloquially in reference to individuals or communities attempting to "escape" a so-called "underprivileged life", but kept from doing so by those others of the same community or nation attempting to ride upon their coat-tails or who simply resent their success.

For Filipinos, crab mentality is the tendency to "outdo another at the other's expense"or to "pull down those who strive to be better."An overzealous leader becomes morally shamed.It "became a call for community leaders to acknowledge indebtedness to others and to work for the good of the entire community and not just for themselves."
Sad to say other people doesn't think of the challenges of that person experiences to have that success. They just think of their selfish reason. Just a little advice: learning to recognize the crab mentality in others is a very good idea. Early as posibble learn to be aware of that attitude especially if you work or live in a highly competitive environment.
