Why you should save thresher sharks

DESPITE classifying a certain animal as an endangered specie, illegal trades continue to be rampant, further harming the said specie.

The thresher shark is one of them.

Because of their fins, fishing for thresher sharks has been very frequent in most parts of the planet.

One of the only places where the said sharks are considered "sacred" is the Monad Shoal in Cebu, where the residents of the nearby Malapascua Island have been continuously doing efforts in conserving them, eventually turning the spot into a diving haven.

However, that's just one side of the story.

The road to bringing back thresher sharks to life is long, but a new proposal will help in further saving the sharks.

The said proposal will regulate the fishing for the thresher sharks, and WE want you to support it.

I have been an advocate of saving the endangered species, and I believe the yes vote to this proposal, which will be presented at the Conference of Parties next week, is beneficial for our Cebuano friends.

Why? Aside from environmental factors, the Monad Shoal is responsible for 80 percent of the Malapascua Island residents' source of income, and for a group of people who have quickly moved on from the wrath of Typhoon Yolanda in 2013, your yes vote will further motivate them in conserving the sharks.

Meanwhile, a no vote could mean opening the doors of Malapascua to unsustainable thresher shark fishing, further sending the sharks close to extinction.

We should send a strong message to the Philippine delegation to the COP that we want thresher shark fishing regulated.

For now, here are some tips to help save the sharks.

Change the way you see happiness

WHEN I started this travel and lifestyle blog, all I do is to post my happy moments inside theme parks, hotels, vacation places, and various events.

But when I activate my alter ego (my sportswriter self, that is), it's all sports in my news site.

However, there are times that my photographers want to take a day off, and I am in my lonesome and being forced to take photos... using my phone!

So, with all the photos I took on my mobile device, the photo below is the most memorable one.
This is a photo of one of the scheduled games during the 2015 UFL All-Star Saturday. One hundred kids from the UFL Youth League took on 11 players from the seniors. It was a cute moment to see the next generation soccer stars playing with their heroes. Everyone went home with smiles.

It may not be as beautiful as you think (my phone is kinda low-end), but it's simply memorable, and it changed the way I see happiness.

The 100 vs. 11 picture changed the way I see mobile photography, just like the Huawei P9.

Its camera is co-engineered with Leica. It has dual lenses that produces high quality photos and allow users to take amazing monochrome, slo-mo, colored, light painting photos among others.

So get ready for a revolution in mobile photography with Huawei P9.

HEAD TURNER | How to be a #SelfieExpert

AT a time where selfies rule Instagram (or actually ever since IG existed), many wonder, "How come these 'selfie lords' have become some of the top Instagram influencers?"

For my friends and followers, you would also notice me posting selfies on IG as auto-posted on Facebook, from posing with some sports stars (I'm a sportswriter, by the way)...
That's me with former senator and PBA legend Robert Jaworski before I put on braces.
...actually, I've "retired" from that crap since I want to dedicate further on my job, but when Michael Carter-Williams came to town, I have to defer it...
...to posting "selfies" to prove that I'm watching a historic event like Eat Bulaga's de facto 37th anniversary special aka "Tamang Panahon"...
I even had to leave my sports coverage for this.
...to even posting rarities like me wearing a formal outfit (I love street clothes)...
...not to mention funny ones like me pulling off a "hugot" out of an overworked foot.
So, how did I become a "selfie lord" then? The answer: being myself!

Yes, the effect of my braces to my teeth when I took them off for good is somewhat minimal (I will put them back soon), but it did not stop me from posing smiles on the cam in selfie mode.

Just be at your goofiest, happiest self, and your selfies will shine bright. Voila! You're now a #SelfieExpert.

One good help for you to become a selfie expert is the new #OppoF1S, which is now available at your favorite stores.

How I make worklife easier

I recently covered the FIBA OQT, which ended at around 11 p.m. every game day.
AS a sportswriter and a travel and lifestyle blogger, I have to be engaged to hard typing work that sometimes I need to finish articles overnight.

At one point, in fact, I called it a (yester)day after I published my last write-up at around 6 a.m... with a bunch of backlogs left!
One time ago, I went straight to our prayer meeting from my work without any sleep.
Not to mention that I still don't have a laptop and my tablet is still being fixed, that is, I'm doing my reports in a computer shop surrounded by the noise of gamers who trash talk their opponents.

Despite all of the things that contribute to the hardships of my work, I feel relieved every time I'm done with my job, but there are also times that I still feel the stress and the hassle in spite of the relief.

What I do to cope up with stress and hassle is that I get a long sleep (i.e., a full eight-hour or sometimes longer hibernation), eat chicken skin (fats help in decreasing stress), and eat much food. Bonding with my churchmates is also a help.
Pigging out with my churchmates is also a good help. Siege Camba
However, it also helps to take vitamin supplements like FERN-C. While it only makes the stress more bearable, FERN-C, along with the other things I do to lessen the stress, is very effective in still being myself despite the hard work.

I tried FERN-C, and it actually worked especially in boosting my immune system. Talagang "Subok na" siya!

So add FERN-C to your everyday stress relief, so that your "Worklife ay easy with Fern-C."

For more, go to FERN-C's website and check out its social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Victoria Court unveils new out-of-this-world room

VICTORIA Court, one of the leading hotel chains nationwide, launched their new themed room on Thursday night at their Pasig hotel.

Inspired by the Star Wars saga, the said room, aptly named "Space Wars", features a spaceship cockpit with light switches, pilot flight controllers, and sound effects so that the guests can play simulations of spaceship battles.

Also, guests can channel their inner cosplayers as costumes and weapons can be seen in the room as well.
The dishes to be served at the Space Wars room, which like the other rooms can be used for gatherings, are also Star Wars-inspired, like the black-bun Dark Side Burger, Panatrooper (Victoria Court's own take on Panna Cotta), and Jar Jar Drinks.

ADC helps you have better driveway

AS a homeowner, you should always take pride in how your driveway looks. Does your current driveway have some unsightly cracks in it? Are those cracks getting bigger with each passing year? If this is the case, you need to take steps to make your driveway look as good as new. This means you will need to hire the services of a contractor who is experienced at repairing driveways. You should not simply hire the first contractor that you see listed in the phone book. This is a decision that should not be rushed. Here are some ideas you can use to go about hiring a driveway repair contractor.

1. Have they been in your town long? It is always a good idea to carefully look into the background and work history of any contractor you are thinking about hiring to repair your driveway. You should start by looking into how long they have been working in your area. Do they have an established track record in your community with lots of former clients who live in your city? Does the contractor have an office? You want to avoid some of the dishonest contractors who travel to different towns and perform inferior work right before they disappear and go to a new city. A contractor who has an office is a person you can trust because you know the person will still be around long after the job is done. He will be easy to find if you need him to fix any problems that might arise with the work he performs.

2. How soon can it be repaired? Some contractors move much more slowly than others. You want to avoid hiring a contractor who does not have a sense of urgency to complete the job as quickly as possible. Therefore, find out how long it will take the contractor to finish the project. Do this for every contractor you talk to. Use this information to help you decide who to hire. You can find out about the services of very skilled and experienced asphalt driveway contractors when you check out Asphalt Driveway Contractors.

3. License and insurance Any contractor you hire to perform construction work on your property needs to be licensed by the state you are living in. Ask to see their license and make sure it is valid. You also must see proof of a current insurance policy to make sure any damage caused by the contractor is covered.
