Australia-Philippines FIBA Verdict

Oh boy, the father just handed its verdict. The drama and violence has now taken a back seat as the FIBA officials from Switzerland handed down the result of their own investigation. Violence has no place nor included in the game of basketball contrasting the way it is being played, a lot contacts and denials. Height against heft, speed versus wall of wide bodied players. A lot has been been change and most have made change into their programs and representations from acquisition of foreign born players to beefed up the rosters and widened the chance to make it in the elusive Olympic dream. Then the introduction of what they call “Home and Away” where the games are played into one team’s home-court and the other to the opponents court and of course to make it economically viable FIBA made some major changes in terms of bracketing that pitches those teams against other opponents they’ve never used to play before. And the results was overwhelming.

Many are shocked with the outcome and heavy penalties imposed upon those the FIBA body thinks have made it worst. Will those stiff fines guarantees that such fracas will not happen again in the future with other teams?

I suggest FIBA officials go back to the drawing board and map-out again where and what in particular that needs attention to detail in terms of handling a cross-country competition. Is it still effective bringing in referees from other countries where basketball is not that popular or in the infancy period? Did the site inspection of the proposed venues really meet the prescribed standards with respect to security, safety of the players and its committee? Finally, does the home and away thing really bring in the planned higher competition level or will just boost the ego’s of those team that still trapped under the sheets of racial discrimination. While every country wanted to promote camaraderie and boundless love for the sports, it’s undeniable that racism still exists in the halls of sports venues, and even in workplaces. It’s high time that a psychological exams be given in every participating members of FIBA sanctioned tournament.

Natural Disasters – How It Shape the Earth and the Humankind

Hello my dear readers and fellow bloggers! What is your take with the way natural disasters are engulfing the planet, can the best scientific invention do something about it and save millions of lives and properties.? …

Life cycle is a must for an organism to fulfill its formal process and endless possibilities to stay in the entire coexistence with the planet earth.

Billion years ago, according to historians there were large birds, mammals and even sea creatures have once roamed the planet. They were vanished according to records when an asteroid hit the earth that rain of fireballs after fireballs have caught them unaware and ended their period. Microorganism brought by through the minerals of alien rock that emerged and coexist with the host minerals.

Have you ever wonder. What in particular were the reason behind these natural phenomena such as earthquake, volcano eruptions has in store for the mankind? Why it has to happen? And the intervals, though what man have in records are the occurrence and dates of repetition a certain active volcano or earthquakes path had on a certain magnitude and depth. As to why it has to happen, there was no proof of records one can produce to say that very reason behind. We are still at loss, is this the limitations our creator have put on in all of us that separates us human from divine.

As long as the earth revolves in a journey we all have to take, we all like a tiny dot clinging to the mercy of weather patterns, ground shaking and water surging from the vast oceans and no other way man can do to beat it but to live with it.

In disaster we must exist, in disaster we will vanished. – Paquito

Paquito Quote for the Day 49

Champions are born with high awareness to greatness in their genes.

Emmanuel “Manny” “Pacman” Pacquiao knew it. His high desire to finish strong, to leave the stage with the beaming lights of fame running is not only his dream but of all those athletes out there. Legacy, as you may want to call it. Greatest, as some wanna brand it., and humblest in all the race as we may fit see it.

Time will passed, records broken and a new one better in besting the record any great athletes have are just written testaments of how the generation have handled such fete and how people reacted and enjoyed every bit of fame rubbed with it.

Congratulations Manny Pacman Pacquiao! Mabuhay ka! – Paquito

Urbanism, How Often It (must) Change?

Hello my fellow bloggers and avid followers! Now is your time to engage and shine with your unique thoughts and crazy ideas regarding your place where you belong at, from Asia to Africa and to the Americas and Europe up to Antarctica down to South pole regions. And with the impending melting of glaciers and receding shorelines how will it affect as to what extent it will gonna make man adapt to it with help of modern technology and smarter policies?

Civilization started when life on earth started and kept growing until what it is now. My question is, how often must man change his places, the network of roads, the highway of the seas and the aerial corridors we need to maintain and sustain proper and progressive movement or transfer of goods for man to live and survive.

Damn if You Do , Damn if You Don’t

What a great day to celebrate life, especially for the team of cave divers who’ve spent their entire expertise for that very successful search and rescue mission in a landscape of unimaginable surroundings of underwater darkness…. to keep my curiosity on check, I tried to spend a 10 minutes of darkness inside a room without light, with thin air and eerie sounding space. Nothing is there to be honest, swift disorientation in terms of whats happening outside creeps in. And i told myself that those twelve young boys and their coach have the greatest experience of their lives. A story of err and success! Thailand cave rescue: First footage emerges of boys in hospital

Today’s article is far different, difference in terms of where you are standing at… still the essence of curiosity is at play and the grittiest display of cerebral celebration are manifested. Want to share your ideas, follow or subscribe to this blog. Thank you

Many times we hear the phrase uttered by people that supposedly don’t… damn if they do!

So what’s in the phrase, is this a normal pick up word being appropriately leveled to people without any proof to curtail the reasons behind every reasons of winnings or default nobody wanted? Rumor mongering has led many countries, tribes and groups to war. That instead of proactively sort the source to prove its merit, in the first place why, what agenda they have… habitually it’s the other way around. Everyone’s child like tantrum is visible in their acts, words, stance, poor acceptance and deceitful no-brainy decision that blind-fully housed their distorted and young mind.

Does the blaming game the new hashtag of the current generation? Does the me-first mentality that started way back nomadic age still exists? Life is just like that, to be or not to be still part of the odd and even choices they used. What does it brings on the four corners of the any man’s world is a limiting forces to expound, to analyze and to absorb things outcome.

Damn things bites back! And it bites faster than any scientific formulae that’s been use in tracing the speed of light. Karmic things sleeping above everyone’s nape could engulfed you faster than before you can finish thinking of its results. Ruining people’s career lives and those he’s been a hero should be a thing of the past. Man has to be born to a journey to start, survival game is taught as early as infancy period inside the mothers womb, nurtured with everything whatever is within the mothers reach… the society she belongs to, the passion she cared about and the odd things she’ll be longing for just to complete the flesh of humanity.

Will you blame someone for your ineptness, for being unable to grasp things happening before your eyes? You got brains that’s wired just anybody else… but the ability to compensate those trickles of solid discharge of decisions are too heavy for your kind to deal with… is it because of a young age? Maybe due to inexperience. While to some it’s about respect, you cannot demand it because you gotta earn it. But who cares about your thoughts if you’re not willing to share it? Who cares about your weaknesses if you’re not ready to face it and nobody will care once you close the path to learning.

It’s so easy to be damned yet easier to be dumber. – Paquito

Your Health at Stake in the Age of Tech-Commercialism

First we must have to understand the million reasons we try to listen to… They started it with credit cards freebies through an incentivized sort of thing and it’s now the opposite, where the multiple use of your card are baited with rewards and point system that makes the buying a bit handy and tricky. As we try to look back how merchandise were being sold in an enclosed and chill cooled stores it’ll soon be a thing of the past! Have you notice the flourishing demand for cold storage, logistics hub and motorized racking systems these are offering to big shots in the areas of clothing, shoes, hardwares you name it and it’s all in there! All you gotta do is to create an account in their portal or virtual stores anchored to your banking service providers and voila you’re off to a good start., buying and selling online at the convenience of your comfy couch and anywhere you want.

Since the industrialization started,.. most of the people’s orientation towards anything basic have been liberalized with the counting inevitable change in our society. From transportation to hobbies and the way this new generation been living is somehow reflective of our acceptance to new discoveries, inventions and to some they call it technology.

Having a power supply then was a big deal that nobody have predicted the way how fast people are discharging duties, works, jobs and board room decisions and medical practice taking out the distance constraint out of the picture to achieve successful operational surgical procedures with the real response time logical chips they can rely on .

Let’s set our focus on how the present generation are maximizing the utilization of the modern technology for their own daily use. Starting from food, work and shelter these basics can be done in a click of every keystrokes that’s within their reach, smartphones and all types of tech products they’re also exposed at.

What does these really brings us as a member of a civilized society? Why do we subscribed to it that we’re almost relying with it in every decisions we make? Does being AI create a realm of intelligent civilization? But wait a minute, isn’t it indulging us to move less than we used to? traveling anywhere outside your door requires motion, vital to our well being…. obesity, the number one result of these tech change has triple up if not quadruple the figures experiencing past the normal fat mass percentage due to a lesser physical movement, interaction and exercises!

Still, with fast growing lifestyles of every people dictates our reaction to it. They say that traffic is a sign of growing economies, agree? If you agree with this then you might want to consider doing purchases through those on line portals for your daily needs! , with this you are free of traffic and spend your precious time to other agenda you got in mind. Rising fuel prices is parallel to rising plane tickets, right?… then again you’re back to your smartphone and laptops unlocking yourself through a hundred of social media links to connect to your friends and relatives in the other continent that saves you both monies and time and your security  were somehow  check and assured.

With all these basic supplies and needs rising to an infinite and unbelievable prices due to the so called “trade war” initiated by men in suits sitting in a large boardroom, everything that we used to enjoy for the benefit of our own basic existence has become a hostage of technological commercialism that man have started. It’s a life cycle we’ll soon burst and turn back to basics.

Your choice, your life, your future. – Paquito
