Two days ago I posted a short story about the sad fate of the 2 year old girl in China who was ignored by a dozen passers-by after being hit and ran over by two vehicles. One hit and run is enough but twice is
supposedly too much for the conscience of humans yet you can see it from the involve people who never help the poor little girl who probably is losing too much blood resulting from the incident. The video is a little graphic and could be too much for faint hearted.
Watch and compare…!

I was watching CNN World Report today to get more information about how Moammar Gadhafi died because the reception in my car radio last night was not good and I can’t hear it clearly of how the rebels killed him. What I know last night is that the ruler of Libya for 42 years is gone and dead but how he ends up in the cold storage is another story since there have been conflicting reports coming out.
And on my way to work today, I turn on the radio again hoping to get a glimpse again of the real story of the death of Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi but I end up listening about the result of the World Series Game 2 with a dramatic win by the Texas Rangers. And they are heading home for the game 3 of World Series with the momentum on their bats.
Then comes the live report of the 2 year old girl, who was a hit and run victim in China has died in the hospital. Her death has torn the hearts of the hospital staff that took care of her after several people have ignored to stop to help her while lying on the street injured for several minutes. Her horrific death came from the two hit and run incident, yes two vehicles had ran over the fragile body of the toddler.

But what really captures my attention and made me think over and over is when Jim Clancy, the CNN anchor asked if the conjoined twins from Cameroon are two separate individuals. That if they have something in common in their minds or have different thoughts after all. This led me to think about those who were fused by their heads.
Could conjoined twins share a mind? Can they hear each other’s thoughts and see through each other’s eyes? Well, that’s just my mind tinkering with my thoughts.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Net10 for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Living abroad to work is a great deal for some workers who can’t afford to spend more airtime calling their love ones back home. And getting in touch with family members gives you more headaches due to the high prizes, hidden bills and most of it you are tied up with specific contracts. Sometime there are issues also with connection and reception of your calls. Having an affordable, flexible and dependable prepaid wireless service like Net10 is a big relief in your pocket. Imagine their 15 cents per minute charge.
Here’s why you’ll have a great deal with Net10, aside from having no contracts needed and no surprise bills, it won’t require any credit checks as well. It also offers great nationwide coverage and excellent reception so using the service is no hassle at all.
There are lots of reasons why you should become a Real NET10 customer and here are some that you probably can’t resist.
- The Easy Minutes Plus plan is an automatic minutes plan that starts at $15.00 for 200 minutes.
- With Pay-As-You-Go Plans, your minutes carry over with active service.

How Net10 works
Since there’s no contract need to sign up then you can buy and select any kind of cell phone you want from trusted brands that Net10 supports like LG, Motorola, Kyocera, Nokia and Samsung. There are also reasonable prices for the kind of features you’ll have on the phone you’ve selected. Once you’ve done that then activate your Net10 phone model on the website and you’re good to go. You can start using it right away or perhaps making a test call will do the trick if it’s activated already. You have the convenience of buying airtime minutes at your own comfort and because the amount of minutes left and the service end date are displayed on your phone then you don’t have any hassle of remembering them.

This is my entry to the Techie She Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways Week 19. This week’s prize is $10 paypal credits from Ruby of Postcard Enthusiast.
Last night our son and I went outside the house to water the plants and of course he’s again in his running time. Although he still has a little stuffy nose and post nasal drip but don’t have fever anymore and more so is back in his usual running form too. So does me following him wherever he goes. It took a few more falling down for him and a cry here and there before finally stopping and eventually just play with the garden hose.
This is when he gets cranky while trying to force him to eat when he was down with colds and fever.
And sometimes he will give you this kind of look. Or should I say that he is just posing for posterity sake?
Will you be angry or mad if he's going to give you this kind of smile?
Which of them is postcard perfect? I so love the first one or perhaps the last which I would say can melt your anger no matter what.

If you don't know who Steve Jobs is then you might not be an Apple owner and even if you are not, you should have known him for he have revolutionized and transformed the word apple into one of the most sought computer and mobile phone technologies. The maestro behind iPhone, iPad, iPod, iMac and iTunes died at the age of 56 but it wasn't revealed where and what causes his death. But it has been known that in recent years he had fought a rare form of pancreatic cancer and in fact he had a liver transplant.
He has been taking a leave of absence and I believe (if I am not mistaken) for about three times already since his battle with cancer started. Then last August he stepped down as Apple's CEO, handed it over to his hand-picked successor Tim Cook, the long time operations chief.
Apple's technology has been known for its minimalist design yet had a very influential character in the world of personal computing and mobile phone as we know it today. And perhaps, the most notable one is when the iPod was launched in the early 2000 that you can see everywhere and the thumb-dial control contraption seemed to be prominent than a wristwatch.

One of my favorite TV series is back for a sixth season with a startling twist, as if there isn’t any in the past seasons, but this time as I read in many articles and reviews, somewhat a whole lot different from the rest. So if you are Dexter lover and follower then this should be a season for you not to miss. And I think it’s been a year since the shocking and heartbreaking aftermath in the last season from the loss of his wife which I never expected such twists.
This time the Miami Metro blood spatter forensic is back in Dexter Season 6 to become religious. Does Dexter finally see the light? And eventually succumbed to the pressure of having a son and what trait he can pass on to his son? Will he not be back in his serial-killing ways?

This alone is already quite interesting and for sure a mind boggling season again but this one is a different story that hasn’t been explored yet. But the photo ad on the right says it all, how much more with the tag line “The Avenging Angel Returns”. And the serial killer who religiously follows a moral code is the only reason why I like this TV series. And I also like what Sgt. Batista said to Dexter when he asked of how we know if there really is a God.
And of course, Dexter won’t be complete without a love interest on his side. So that’s another thing to expect in season 6 and find out who is this attractive sister of… that’s for you to find out.

This is my entry to the Techie She Lucky Blogger Weekly Giveaways Week 20. This week’s prize is $10 from Swexie of Khakiness.
In the past few days it seems the day came by so slow and it seems the month was very long and hard to come to its end. Not that I am in a hurry, though I am, somehow in a way that I expect something to happen. And it did…!
Anyway, I have been longing to upgrade my PNS and every time when I am about to, it keeps getting on hold for various reasons that are far more important than my own. No regrets that it did not happen any sooner, in fact grateful, probably it has to come by in the right time when it is needed the most. So the baby is now a reality… Isn't that sweet...!
But before that, let me tell you something as a continuation of “Better (Almost) Late Than Never”. I got an assignment to write in my medical/health and safety blog from SponsoredReviews earlier this month that has to be completed and submitted after 7 days. I finished it in less than 2 days despite the many obligations at hand but it didn't go as smoothly as I expect it and that every time I had this kind of assignment there seems to be a snag that would happen.
I have followed all the required elements and requirements that the vendor asked. In fact, I made a second article for the same purpose just to make sure and trying to find where I went wrong but still it remains the same. Every time I submit it, there’s always an error that the links cannot be found. The brainstorming last until a day before D-Day when I thought that would be it and there’s nothing much I can do and I have already exhausted what I know.
But then an email came from my blog host that there was a transfer of server that occur within the time frame when I have submitted my assigned task. This probably the reason why my submission wasn’t captured in my clients system and it bounced back an error. I became so nervous already when D-Day came and I still don’t have any assurance from my web host that it is back to normal already yet I am very much grateful for the honesty she have shown. Although it would be a loss of monetary value and confidence towards the client if I wouldn’t make it but honesty to me just carries too much weight to be ignored.
At the end of the day and in the last minute, I tried submitting it for the last time that took for awhile to give a response but it did somehow. Voila…! It’s been accepted and I’m done with it in a better almost late than never fashion.
And ooh by the way, I was paid by SponsoredReviews after six (6) days.
