Defying Orders

What does it mean, and how it can be considered as one? Many times or most of the time some people never really take seriously some instructions or  orders of others. They have the right reason to do so and occasionally to some, they just ignore it. Then how it can be avoided, is it something we can just pass on or nothing to be worry about? That depends on the  … ehem.. uhhmmnnn,, who is on the other side of the communication end.

They can be a person in authority to discharge whatever institutional power vested upon them. A coach, adviser , you name it. The next thing is how somebody felt neglected, ignored or disregarded.

Everyone’s have their own time in either position of  neglect. Intentional or not. Acceptable or not acceptable. Whatever it is, once you neglect it they’ll considered it defies their order.

No one wanted it but everyone’s waiting of it. – Paquito

The Climate has Really Changed

How many super typhoons we needed to bear for us to act and seriously face the whole fact of mitigating the ill effects of this phenomenon. Is it really doable? does cutting carbon emission foot print somehow help the planet to lessen and create an impact to reverse the extreme weather pattern we are currently having right now? As i was watching the final debate between Sec. Hillary Clinton and Billionaire Donald Trump, they’re both seemed unprepared with the potential program intended for the climate disastrous effect not only in their states but for the global cooperation as well. Look around and see and feel for yourself, aren’t it supposed to be wet season and yet we are under a scorching heat of the sun. Truly the climate has change and will keep on changing once there is no cooperative participation of putting our acts together. I hope its not yet too late and for the next generation to have a better habitable planet in their time.

And with the holiday season fast approaching, try to give or share a waste-free gift as we are throwing more than 25% of trash during these season, don’t purchase an item of dubious quality that may have been manufactured under unfair conditions and transported thousands of miles to the store at the cost of burning fuel, concentrate on giving people experiences like tickets to music, theater or sporting events and even voucher for meals at restaurants that support local resources and use organic ingredients or lessons to help discover hobbies or further existing ones are just  few suggestion of gifts that wont get sent directly to the landfill along with the heap of wrapping papers.

Our oceans are literally littered with trash that has been slowly killing the natural habitats of the sea, mangroves and even seabeds are suffering from the human consumption’s and disposal of food tailing and wrappers. Let us stop and holistically veered away in doing so. As the people change the way he lives the same the climate have parallel of change in response to humanity.

Learn the bearings and shattering effect of phenomenal disaster by cutting down the wastes we produce in our everyday lives. – Paquito

Paquito Quote for the Day 08

Climate Change is real. To those who are not subscribing to the idea, you better think twice as the way it has been wrecking havoc to places that has been unable to experience extreme weather conditions for more than a century are the walking proof of how things especially climate patterns have change. Hurricane Matthew is currently flexing its muscles of devastation on the other part of the globe while i’m writing this article and i cannot help but remember the parable of “the boy who cried wolf” as the extreme change which is obviously felt and seen in almost the entire planet is being regard as a hoax or something the we shouldn’t take seriously at all.

How many lives are needed to be sacrifice before we put our acts together ? Industrial revolution is nothing if there are no people to benefit from it, the time to revisit the phases of technological advancement is now knocking our doors of conscientious heart and soul.  Let’s start small, by picking a piece of candy wrapper, it is a big help to eradicate garbage problem in a city or a country. How do you imagine a ten billion people picking up trash at the same time? that is a small but a huge impact stance we can effortlessly do to our mother earth and it doesn’t even eat up a minute of our lifetime isn’t it? Let us not  be like the boy who cried wolf and watch helplessly the earth vanished right in our sight.

Does a Shared Public Restroom can be Considered Green ? 

Philippines, Shangrila Mall EDSA Mandaluyong – In my previous article I’ve tackle the need for an improved facilities especially when a public place is dealing with today’s women. A better and larger physical set up somehow became a timely requirement for any places where queens of our lives roam and mingles.

I was having my favorite brewed coffee in one of the famous coffee places in the metropolis serving hot and cold coffee based drinks and has the best facilities when it comes to being socially and environmentally conscious and compliant through the so called green architecture or green certified facility which means the house was built using finest materials that were produced with so little carbon dioxide utilization or an almost zero carbon footprint. But it is also pretty obvious that they’re offering to their loyal customers a “shared restroom” which has its pros and cons to its users. And at that scene of a long queuing line of both men and women towards the he/she restroom gives me the question of “does a shared restroom can be considered green?”

What do you think my dear colleagues and readers from all parts of the world, please share your thoughts and let’s put a better understanding on the green built environment with a sound convenience to every people patronizing it.

Criteria are parameters, convenience is the measurement of a good form follows function ideology.-Paquito
