Rizal Day- December 30

December 30- Rizal day

Rizal Day is a Philippine national holiday commemorating the life and works of José Rizal, one of the Philippines' national heroes. It is celebrated every December 30, the day of Rizal's execution at Bagumbayan, now known as Rizal Park, in 1896.


Rizal Day was first instituted with a decree from President Emilio Aguinaldo issued December 20, 1898 and celebrated December 30, 1898 as a national day of mourning for Rizal in Malolos, Bulacan and all victims of the Spanish colonial rule of the Philippines. Daet, Camarines Norte was the first town to follow the decree, building a monument designed by Lt. Col. Antonio Sanz, led by Sanz and Lt. Col. Ildefonso Alegre, and financed by the townfolk at Camarines Norte and the rest of the Bicol Region. Finished on February 1899, the three-tiered stone pylon inscribing Rizal's novels Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo, and Morga, for Antonio de Morga, author of Sucesos de las islas Filipinas, a book about the early days of the Spanish colonization in the Philippines.

With the victory of the Americans against the Spaniards in the Spanish-American War, the Americans took control of the Philippines. In an effort to demonstrate that they were more pro-Filipino than the Spaniards, the American Governor-General William Howard Taft in 1901 named Rizal a Philippine national hero. A year later, on February 1, 1902, the Philippine Commission enacted Act No. 345, which made December 30 a public holiday.

To underscore the solemnity of the event, President Elpidio Quirino signed Republic Act No. 229 into law on June 9, 1948 that prohibits cockfighting, horse racing and jai-alai every December 30.

woman tries to trick her husband with a letter to see if he is cheating....

Woman Tries To Trick Her Husband With A Letter To See If He Is Cheating:

Many people feel insecurities in their relationships.  One day you might wonder why he is staying late, or if she is really out with her friends.  Whether you are suspicious or you are worried, one way to ease this anxiety is to simply talk about it.

While that is the mature and easiest way to figure things out, you can always come up with a more inventive solution.  In this fictional story, the wife is worried that her husband might not be as devoted to their relationship as she is, so she decides to give him a test.  She gets results, but it definitely wasn't what she expected.

The other day, a girl wanted to know how her hubby would react if she left without telling him where she had gone.  So she decided to write him a letter saying she is tired of him and didn't want to live with him anymore.  After writing it, she put the letter on the table in the bedroom and hid under the bed.

When her hubby came back home, he saw the letter and read it.  Then, he wrote his own message down and began to sing and dance while changing his clothes.  He took out his phone, dialed someone, then said: "Hey babe, I'm just changing clothes then I will join you. As for the other fool, it has finally dawned on her that I was fooling around behind her back so she left me.  See you soon, honey!" Then her hubby walked out of the room.

In tears, she got up from under the bed and decided to read what her hubby wrote on the letter. When she picked it up and read it, it said: "I could see your feet, you idiot.  I am going out to buy bread."

#hahaha what a story....

VETERANS DAY: November 11


Joseph Ambrose, an 86-year-old World War I veteran, attends the dedication day parade for the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in 1982, holding the flag that covered the casket of his son, who was killed in the Korean War.

Veterans Day is an official United States holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans. It is a federal holiday that is observed on November 11. It coincides with other holidays such as Armistice Day and Remembrance Day, which are celebrated in other parts of the world and also mark the anniversary of the end of World War I (major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918, when the Armistice with Germany went into effect). The United States also originally observed Armistice Day; it then evolved into the current Veterans Day holiday in 1954.

Veterans Day is not to be confused with Memorial Day; Veterans Day celebrates the service of all U.S. military veterans, while Memorial Day is a day of remembering the men and women who died while serving.[1]

Most sources spell Veterans as a simple plural without a possessive apostrophe (Veteran's or Veterans').

life is not that easy...

This Pregnant Wife Left Her Husband Forever... Sounds Bad But I'm Completely With Her

This Pregnant Wife Left Her Husband Forever... Sounds Bad But I'm Completely With Her

This is powerful. You've probably seen a lot of news recently about domestic abuse. A brave woman who will remain unnamed for her safety recently came out with her story. While every story of abuse is sad, her's really struck me and you'll see why. She writes:

''They say you repeat what you know and that was certainly true for me. I grew up in a violent home and I desperately wanted someone to love me, someone to care about me, someone to protect me. And when I was 19, I thought I met that man.

At first it was like a fairytale - everything was included, even the handsome prince. Lots of girls noticed him, but he was only interested in me. He told me I was beautiful and showered me with attention, but just as fast as it came, suddenly, it all stopped.

I didn't understand what went wrong, but he outlined the problems in our relationship. I was spending too much time working and going to school and not enough time with him, he told me through tears. So I quit college that week. Then I quit my part-time job.

From that point on, it was a matter of what didn't suit him and how I would prove my love. I allowed him to control what I wore, how I would conduct myself and with whom I would associate. Violations would be met swiftly at first with threatened breakups and accusations that I was pushing him into the arms of other women.

The arguments were loud and threatening, but later, when he decided that I had caused him to go too far, he'd hold me in his arms and sob, 'I don't want us to fight, but if you didn't (fill in the blank).' He made it seem like it was my fault. He made it sound like I deserved these consequences.

But at this point, the pain only came with words.

The pushing and shoving began after we married. I would walk around almost as silent as a Trappist Monk so as not to raise his ire, but you could feel the tension in the home begin to rise. He had no problem letting me know how stupid I was or how much prettier some strange woman was than me.

And he wouldn't stop there. He would pick an argument, which eventually led to pushing and shoving or banging me against the wall. He'd then storm out of the house to be with his friends or another woman, leaving me all alone.

When he'd come back, the 'Honeymoon Phase' was in full force. He'd return with flowers, tender words and promises to change. Love is blind and it left me wondering why we had ever fought over such 'petty' things. It was during one of these honeymoon periods I got pregnant with our son.

At first, he was excited about the pregnancy - but in quick order that changed. I came home from work one day to find another woman in my house and the next thing I knew, I was thrown to the floor and kicked over and over. My crime? It was yelling at her.

Afterward, I was hardly able to move and I almost miscarried. He wouldn't take me to the hospital and instead, threw our phone over the balcony. I left a few days later when I felt well enough to get around and headed to my Grandma's house.

He arrived later to let me know he would take my baby from me if I didn't come home. Days later, through tears, he told me he'd kill himself if I didn't come back. He begged for a chance to be the husband and father he knew he could be.

But like everything else, that didn't last long. When I went home, I was not allowed access to the phone yet he would talk to his girlfriend, insulting me while on the phone with her, degrading the woman who carried his child.

If I complained, he'd get in my face and tell me that I was 'crazy,' he'd tell me that there was 'no girlfriend'. He'd say I was 'stupid to think anyone else would want me'. And then reminded me that I was 'lucky' to have him.

My son was born prematurely and had to remain in the hospital following his birth. My ex-husband used this to his advantage: He told me he'd use my son's prematurity to get custody of him in court.

That, coupled with my postpartum blues, a baby that almost died during birth and the verbal abuse I took day in and day out, made me think about killing myself. I felt like a failure.

The night he almost killed me, we were putting our bed frame together. The phone rang and since I'd been allowed phone privileges again, I reached for the phone. It was his girlfriend. I said, 'Please stop calling here,' and I began to cry as I slammed the phone down.

He demanded to know who was on the phone and I snapped, 'Your girlfriend that doesn't exist.' That was it. All bets were off.

He pushed me into the wall and my head bounced back toward him. The fact that my head bounced back angered him, so he pushed me down again.

He stood over me, kicking me, sometimes in the head but more often than not, he connected with my stomach, still tender from the stitches following my C-section.

I tried to crawl away, but he kept kicking and yelling at me. Somehow, I got up and I made a dash for the door. He came after me, aiming a slat from the metal bed frame we were putting together at my head. I tripped - by some miracle - and it missed, connecting instead with the wall just above me.

I still have a photo - years later - of that hole in the wall with my head next to it. I wanted to remember how close I had come.

I screamed, 'Please don't kill me.' I was bruised and bleeding and I prayed that he would just make his last blow - the final blow - quick. Instead, he stepped over me. He walked out screaming at me, 'Why can't you f*cking see what you do to me? Why do you have to push me like you do?'

He took off before the police got there. Back then, cops would not make an arrest unless they saw the abuse happening. The next day, I got a friend to help me grab as much as I could and I took off.

I took photos and filed charges. I thought I would never look back, but it was only a matter of time before he found me.

I had a week of respite before he called, begging me to come back. I refused to speak to him. A week had taught me that I couldn't live like this. I couldn't put a baby through this. And I didn't want to.

So, I got the courage from deep down inside - a new maternal courage, a gift, I assume, from my son - and began taking the baby steps towards my future. I worked two jobs and got an education degree. Every step I took was a step away from him, a step away from what could have been - a step away from what might have been.

I learned that I was stronger than I ever knew, but I wouldn't have been able to do it without my faith, family and friends who stood by me and encouraged me.

I cried as I wrote certain parts of this story, remembering the girl I once was: the girl who held little worth in her abilities. Despite all that happened, I will always believe it was the strength of living through this experience - and being a survivor - that has made me into the strong woman I am today.''

I'm incredibly moved by her words. This is an honest and frank reality which she bravely shared with us. If you or someone you know is suffering from domestic abuse, please do not hesitate to get the help and safety you need. There are many resources online that are available, if you're in the US, this is a good starting point: http://www.thehotline.org/

No one should ever have to put up with domestic abuse. If you've been a victim of abuse, we want you to know you're not alone. There are people who love and support you and please remember that it's not your fault in any way.

We wish this woman all the best and we're thankful she's out of that abusive situation. Share her powerful words with your friends today.

7 ways stress can be good for you...

While chronic stress can damage your cognitive and physical health, these seven studies show how short-term or moderate stress can actually be healthy for your mind and body.

1. Lowers your risk of premature death — if you have the right attitude. A 2013 study found that participants who reported that they were under a lot of stress but didn’t feel that it affected their health had a lower risk for premature death than both those who perceived their stress as a health hazard, and those who felt barely any stress at all!

2. Boosts production of neurons that improve performance. In an animal study, putting mice under mild stress caused the release of stress hormones, which spurred the growth of new neurons. Two weeks later those new neurons appeared to improve the mice’s performance on learning tests.

3. Strengthens your immune system. Short bursts of stress cause the release of hormones which send a message to immune cells to go from a resting to a ready state — even before a wound or infection.

4. Makes you friendlier. In a 2012 study, participants were either put in a stressful or control situation and afterwards paired up to play a series of games. During game play, those who had recently been in the stressful situation showed more prosocial behaviors, like trust and sharing, than the control group.

5. Improves your ability to learn. After spending 60 seconds with their hands in a bucket of ice (a stressful condition), men performed better on learning tests than an unstressed group.

6. Improves your memory. Researchers found that the brains of rats put under a moderate amount of stress showed an increase in the neurotransmitter glutamine, which is known to improve working memory. In tests four hours later and one day later the stressed rats made fewer mistakes navigating a maze.

7. Gets you in touch with your instincts. A study required people to give a presentation, give a five minute interview and count backwards by 13 in front of a group of judges. The more stressed out participants reported being, the better they performed on a task where they had to ignore details and trust their instincts.

He's Suing His Bank For 1 Million Dollars And About To Win... Here's How He Did It!

He's Suing His Bank For 1 Million Dollars And About To Win... Here's How He Did It!

So risky but it's about to pay off! Dmitry Agarkov is a smart, smart man and he was sick of banks consistently sending him spam about credit card offers. He was also sick of the insanely high interest rates he would be charged for borrowing money so he decided to turn the whole banking game on it's head.

Instead of dumping the credit card offer in the bin, Dmitry decided to play a little trick on them... and try and get $1 million dollars! His incredible story is below. (Update: the story below states he's suing for $727,000, the updated amount is $917,000)

What a crazy genius! Technically he's completely right! I don't know if I'd want to take on a giant Russian bank but he's got the guts and I applaud him! Share this with your friends today.

His Son Catches His Cheating Mom In The Act And Hides... Then Dad Randomly Comes Home!

Wow... BIG oops! What seems to be a loving and committed family on the outside can often hide dark secrets on the inside. This mom was secretly having an affair while her husband was at work. Unfortunately for her, one day her son accidentally finds out and quickly hides in the cupboard as he doesn't know what to do. Suddenly though, dad comes home... you wouldn't be able to guess what happens next!

Nasty Woman Doesn't Let A Tired Soldier Sit... Until He Gets His Own Revenge!

Nasty Woman Doesn't Let A Tired Soldier Sit... Until He Gets His Own Revenge!

She was mean and nasty... but I laughed so hard afterwards! Soldiers deserve a lot of love and respect - they put their lives on the line to fight for our freedom and our causes. Even though we recognize the truly special soldiers are heroes, in my mind, every member who has served is a special hero to me.

Unfortunately not everyone feels the same way. When a tired soldier was wanting some rest after a tiring deployment, he was met with a mean and nasty lady on the train who shouted and berated him... wait till you see what happens!

This Guy Isn't Having Sex Tonight. The Reason Why Is Hilarious.

One evening last week, my girlfriend and I were getting into bed. Well, the passion starts to heat up, and she eventually says, 'I don't feel like it, I just want you to hold me.'

I said, 'WHAT??!! What was that?!'

So she says the words that every boyfriend on the planet dreads to hear...

'You're just not in touch with my emotional needs as a woman enough for me to satisfy your physical needs as a man.'

She responded to my puzzled look by saying, 'Can't you just love me for who I am and not what I do for you in the bedroom?'

Realizing that nothing was going to happen that night, I went to sleep.

The very next day I opted to take the day off of work to spend time with her. We went out to a nice lunch and then went shopping at a big, big unnamed department store. I walked around with her while she tried on several different very expensive outfits. She couldn't decide which one to take, so I told her we'd just buy them all. She wanted new shoes to compliment her new clothes, so I said, 'Lets get a pair for each outfit.'

We went on to the jewelry department where she picked out a pair of diamond earrings. Let me tell you... she was so excited. She must have thought I was one wave short of a shipwreck. I started to think she was testing me because she asked for a tennis bracelet when she doesn't even know how to play tennis.

I think I threw her for a loop when I said, 'That's fine, honey.' She was almost nearing sexual satisfaction from all of the excitement. Smiling with excited anticipation, she finally said, 'I think this is all dear, let's go to the cashier.'

I could hardly contain myself when I blurted out, 'No honey, I don't feel like it.'

Her face just went completely blank as her jaw dropped with a baffled, 'WHAT?'

I then said, 'Honey! I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while. You're just not in touch with my financial needs as a man enough for me to satisfy your shopping needs as a woman.'

And just when she had this look like she was going to kill me, I added, 'Why can't you just love me for who I am and not for the things I buy you?'

Apparently I'm not having sex tonight.

most unexpected taxi ride...

This Was The Most Unexpected Taxi Ride Ever... I've Got Goosebumps Everywhere Now

The cab driver was on his final customer... he didn't see this coming. When we think about life, oftentimes we think about OUR life. But we share this beautiful planet with 7.125 billion others meaning there are a LOT of other people in this world.

This cabbie in New York recently picked up a passenger at the end of his shift - things weren't going to plan at all... but it was perfect. You'll see why...

What a great reminder that life is not always about us... treasure every moment you have with your loved ones. Share this with your friends today - you never know who might need to see this.

Upset Mother Just Wrote A Letter To All Young Girls Posting Photos Online

This Upset Mother Just Wrote A Letter To All Young Girls Posting Photos Online. And It's Brilliant
Kimberly Hall noticed her son's female friends were posting very provocative photos so she recently wrote an eye-opening letter to them... she writes:

''Dear girls,

I have some information that might interest you. Last night, as we sometimes do, our family sat around the dining-room table and looked through the summer's social media photos.

We have teenage sons, and so naturally there are quite a few pictures of you lovely ladies to wade through. Wow - you sure took a bunch of selfies in your skimpy pj's this summer! Your bedrooms are so cute! Our eight-year-old daughter brought this to our attention, because with three older brothers who have rooms that smell like stinky cheese, she notices girly details like that.

I think the boys notice other things. For one, it appears that you are not wearing a bra.

I get it - you're in your room, so you're heading to bed, right? But then I can't help but notice the red carpet pose, the extra-arched back, and the sultry pout. What's up? None of these positions is one I naturally assume before sleep, this I know.

So, here's the bit that I think is important for you to realize. If you are friends with a Hall boy on Facebook or Instagram or Twitter, then you are friends with the whole Hall family.

Please know that we genuinely like staying connected with you this way. We enjoy seeing things through your unique and colorful lens. You are insightful, interesting, and often very, very funny - which is what makes your latest self-portrait so extremely unfortunate.

That post doesn't reflect who you are at all! We think you are lovely, and smart. But, we had to cringe and wonder what you were trying to do? Who are you trying to reach? What are you trying to say?

And now - big bummer - we have to block your posts. Because, the reason we have these (sometimes awkward) family conversations around the table is that we care about our sons, just as we know your parents care about you.

I know your family would not be thrilled at the thought of my teenage boys seeing you only in your towel. Did you know that once a male sees you in a state of undress, he can't quickly un-see it? You don't want the world to see you primarily in this sexual way, do you?

Neither do we: we're all more than that.

And so, in our house, there are no second chances with pics like that, ladies. We have a zero tolerance policy. I know, so lame. But, if you want to stay friendly with our sons online, you'll have to keep your clothes on, and your posts decent. If you post a sexy selfie (we all know the kind), or an inappropriate YouTube video - even once - it's curtains.

I know that sounds so old-school, but we are hoping to raise men with a strong moral compass, and men of integrity don't linger over pictures of scantily clad high-school girls.

Every day I pray for the women my boys will love. I hope they will be drawn to real beauties, the kind of women who will leave them better people in the end. I also pray that my sons will be worthy of this kind of woman, that they will be patient, and act honorably, while they wait for her.

Girls, it's not too late. If you think you've made an on-line mistake (we all do), run to your accounts and take down the closed-door bedroom selfies that makes it too easy for friends to see you in only one dimension.

Will you trust me? There are boys out there waiting and hoping for women of character. Some young men are fighting the daily uphill battle to keep their minds clear, and their thoughts praiseworthy - just like you.

You are growing into a real beauty, inside and out.

Act like her, speak like her, post like her.

Mrs. Hall''

Wow! This is powerful. Do you think Kimberly's views are correct or do you think she's overbearing on her kids' friendships? I know not everyone will agree with her but I do - women are so much more valuable than just for their bodies - it's time someone spoke up and I'm glad Kimberly did. You can see more of her writings at her website: http://givenbreath.com/

If you agree with her words today, please share them with your friends.

to all women...

To the women: just because a man likes it, doesn't mean that respects it. There's nothing honorable about 1000 likes from a flock of man who are staring at yout butt, breasts, thighs, duckfaces and tongue lashes; imagining what they'd do to you in bed. You're no longer a woman in their eyes, you're an object, a piece of meat, a vein imagination in the mind of a luster. You want to be sexy and feel beautiful, I get it. But being respected and loved should mean more. Beauty is in modesty and a man won't love a woman he can't respect. "DON'T BELIEVE THE LIKES" -anonymous

how to make a woman truly happy...

So This Is How To Make A Woman Happy? LOL!

I'm glad it's not only me! Relationships can be hard - they never seem like how they are in the movies. For most of us, it's a lot of work but usually very rewarding.

Men have tried to understand women since the dawn of time. Sometimes it's really a case of men are from Mars, women are from Venus. And you won't see a better example of it than in this story below!

If this gave you a good laugh today, don't forget to share it with your friends! :)

This guy is going places. When sending a resume or CV, most people spend a bit of time thinking of what to write to make themselves sound great.

They say honesty is the best policy, apparently it even applies to job applications - because he got the job! Read on to see his brilliant application!

Acupressure [from Latin acus "needle" (see acuity) + pressure (n.)] is an alternative medicine technique similar in principle to acupuncture. It is based on the concept of life energy which flows through "meridians" in the body.

5th of October: World TEACHERS' Day


In many countries, Teacher's Days (or Teachers Day) are intended to be special days for the appreciation of teachers, and may include celebrations to honour them for their special contributions in a particular field area, or the community in general. The date on which Teachers' day is celebrated varies from country to country. Teachers' days are distinct from World Teachers' Day which is officially celebrated across the world on October 5.

 The idea of celebrating Teachers' Day took ground in many countries during the 20th century; in most cases, they celebrate a local educator or an important milestone in education (for example, Argentina commemorates Domingo Faustino Sarmiento's death on September 11 since 1915, while India celebrates Dr. Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan's birthday on September 5 since 1962). This is the primary reason why countries celebrate this day on different dates, unlike many other International Days.


October 5

By Presidential Proclamation No. 479 to honour more than 500,000 teachers nationwide. However, in the Philippines Teachers' Day is actually celebrated in schools between the months of September and October (mainly elementary and secondary levels). Teachers are presented with orchid corsages by students. Groups of students representing various grade levels perform short skits or song and dance numbers, or read poetry for their teachers in front of fellow schoolmates in school-wide activities. These activities are planned by senior students in the Student Council who coordinate the activities well in advance.

For Filipino-Chinese schools, a program is usually organized by students for teachers on September 27, while September 28, considered as the actual Teachers' Day, is a school holiday where both teachers and students are allowed to rest. September 28 was chosen because it is known as the birthdate of famous Chinese philosopher Confucius.

October: Month of the Holy Rosary.

The month of October each year is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. The month of October each year is dedicated to the Most Holy Rosary. This is primarily due to the fact that the liturgical feast of Our Lady of the Rosary is celebrated annually on October 7th.
