Meal Service

Finally, you have come to the most enjoyable part of your meal management . . . "taste and see".

The foods that you will arrange on the table for the enjoyment of everyone can still be made more enticing through what is known as table setting.

Table Setting

A table setting creates a certain atmosphere that adds to the enjoyment of meals served. The flatware, dishes, liners and centerpiece are included in a table setting. They are known as table appointments.

An individual place setting is called a cover and would need width of 50-61 cm and a depth of approximately 30 1/2 to 40 1/2 cm. The area of a cover is also determined by site of the table or the placemat, if used. The flatware to be placed in a table setting is determined by the kinds of the service being used - formal or informal.

Sample table setting for breakfast, lunch and dinner were illustrated. Let us have a review of these settings again tomorrow.

Make room for humour

Hello guy's and friends! did you know that laughter can helps clear mind, yes guy's and creative problem solving becomes easier when done with a clear mind. Try it and take it easy.

Creative thinking comes from learning other things, back when paper was made from cloth, someone noticed that wasp nests had a paper-like composition. It led to the realization that paper could also be made from wood. hmmmm. parang malalim ata na words to ah ...parang di ko rin maget hehehehe....

Room Coloration

Room coloration can also be affected by housekeeping problems. In the cities, there is so much smoke, dust and dirt that makes cleaning harder than in less crowded provinces and towns.
Ages of family members should also be considered when choosing colors for the home. Children play outdoors, and when they do, they are likely to bring home with them dust, dirt and mud.
To avoid housekeeping problems, a wise homemaker always considers colorfastness to sun and water when buying household fabrics. Easy care and maintenance should also be given consideration.

Gods smiles on Anacleto

The wonders of science were almost beyond reach of the common masses during the Spanish rule. Few of them ever had the benefit of the collage education. Hence, they were prone to superstitions. Anacleto del Rosario, who came from the ranks of the poor, was a shining beacon. He rose to become the Prince of the Filipino Chemist despite poverty and the limitations of a Spanish-imposed curriculum.

Anacleto was born in 1860 to a humble rope-maker Eugenio del Rosario, and a fruit vendor, Casimira Sales. He was well-loved since he was the only survivor of eleven children of the poor couple.

During his early boyhood, he studied under private tutors, one of whom was a lawyer-uncle. At the age of seven, he mastered the alphabet and learned elementary Spanish. He was such a bright boy that his hardworking parents entertained glowing illusions of his golden future.

Unfortunately, misfortune struck the family in 1872, when Anacleto was barely eleven years old. His father died and his mother became an invalid. Despite his extreme youth and weak body, Anacleto did a man's job to support his sick mother and had to quit his studies. He sold fruits and vegetable in the streets like his mother; he made ropes like his later father; and, later, he worked as a laborer at the electric company in Manila.

Though tired and wavy from the day's work, Anacleto attended to his mother's needs cheerfully. Not even once did he complain the misery and hopelessness. He knew that someday the Lord will send an angel of mercy to help him and his mother in their sad state. His prayers were answered when a rich and kind relative came to their rescue. In 1873, he enrolled Anacleto, then eleven years old, in the secondary course under private tutors, in the Ateneo de Manila. From then on, it was smooth sailing. He passed the trials and God was obviously pleased with him.

Life Insurance as an Inventment?

There's a good deal of controversy about the value of insurance as an investment.Whole life policies,with their fixed premiums and cash value that grows over the course of the year (that can be collected when you decide to terminate the policy or borrowed against up to the current value of the policy),are considered by many to be an effected way to protect a family financially and invest wisely.Term insurance,on the other hand,is a much less expensive type of insurance,and achieves much the same purpose as whole life (of course,only during the "term" of its existence).But there is no cash surrender value or borrowing privilege.Since both current protection and a good future investment are necessary,the consumer must carefully weigh the advantages of life insurance before making a purchase.

How to Read a life Insurance Policy

All life insurance policies,regardless of type,can be divided into 3 parts:

1.Summary-This is the basic agreement of the insured,the face amount of the policy,the beneficiary's name,and premium amount, as well as the type of policy,any riders (additions to the policy you might have bought),and weather or not the cost of the insurance has been figured on a guaranteed basic or a participating basic.

2.Details-Approximately 10 clauses giving the specifics of the policy's operation,such as due date of premium,value of the policy when you surrender it for either cash or a loan,the amount paid at the time of your death,and options for how your beneficiary can receive that money are included.

3.Application-This is a two-fold section that gives personal information about you and lets you make some decisions about how the policy will work.Among typical items covered are what happens in the event of your suicide,whether you engage in dangerous sports or occupations,what tour rights are under the policy,etc.

As with any legal document,it is important to read and understand what you are purchasing.If you need further information,a good source is the America Council of Insurance,1850 K. St.N.W.,Washington,DC 20006.

The Acropolis of Athens, Greece

In the City of Athens, Greece, stands a hill 160 meters high. The hill is the Acropolis. The word ''Acropolis''means ''upper city''.The ancient Greeks used hills as forts, because fighting uphill was hard for their enemies. Handsome temples were built on this hills to honor the gods and goddesses of the Greeks. Many cities in ancient Greece had an acropolis, but the most famous one is Athens.

Over 400 years before Christ, several magnificent marble temples were built on the Acropolis of Athens in Honor of the goddess Athena. The great gatehouse of the Acropolis, called the Propylaea,was the Athenians Favorite building.

The most famous temple is the Parthenon, design by Phidias, one of the most noted architects of all time. Most people think that the Parthenon is one of the most beautiful buildings ever built. But the statue was lost long ago.

Another temple, the Erechtheum, is known for its''Porch of the Maidens''. The six'' Maidens'' are pillars that are statues of woman. The pillars hold up the roof of the porch.
Many parts of the Acropolis temples were destroyed by time and war. But some of them have now rebuilt. People from all over the world go to see the Acropolis.

Meal Planning For The Family

Mealtimes are not only occasions to get the essential nutrients the body needs. It is also an opportunity for families to enjoy each other's company. Today, family members seldom get as much chance to be with each other as they used to. This setup is bought about by the fact that family members have to go to work or attend school during the day such that the evening meal becomes one of the rare times for them to be together. Conversing, sharing one's experiences or events that took place in their own places of work or in school over a well-prepared nutritious meal is an important event that should be shared by the family members. It is therefore necessary to plan meals that are nutritionally adequate and enticingly prepared and served.

Furniture Arrangement

When you decide on a furniture arrangement, always keep in mind your activities and the space available for these furniture. A well furnished room gives a feeling of balance. This can be achieved successfully by alternating sizes. A tall furniture when grouped with a low furniture gives a more pleasing effect than when all tall or all low furniture are grouped together.

IF all furniture are low, choose one furniture and make it appear tall by putting a tall vase of flowers, a picture frame, or a mirror on top. Distribute large items around the room. Avoid concentrating them in one area. There should be balance between the amount of space occupied by the furniture and the space for movement. See to it that the room is well lighted by distributing the lamps (if there is more than one) around the room instead of concentrating them in one area. It is also important to consider the architecture of the room especially when deciding which part will be used as the focal point. A group of furniture, a work of art, a doorway or window may be used as focal point or center of interest.

Large cabinets, chests or drawers should be placed against the walls of the room. This is the reason why there are unfinished at the back. Group furniture for different activities - a sofa and a chair for conversation; a sofa, a snack table, and a TV set for watching television; a desk, a computer, a lamp, a bookshelf for reading and studying etc.

In furniture arrangement, always provide enough space for movement. The room look crowded and cluttered if furniture are arranged very closed together without consideration for easy movement.

In a bedroom, place the bed in such a way that it will receive enough sunlight and air for sanitation purposes. Keep traffic lanes open. Place the head of the bed against the wall or at the center of the room.

Values, Attitudes and Interests

Values, attitudes and interests affect as you grow and change and make choices for your future. Your individuality is reflected on the values you esteem, the attitudes you express, and the things that intrigue you.

Values are learned from one's culture, environment, family, friends and individual experiences. The church, print media and television also play an important role in the formation of individual groups or familial value patterns. Some values are seen held high by a culture. Take the Filipino family as an example. It gives so much importance to education as a liberating factor from poverty.

The home enables us to have some privacy from the outside world with walls that protect us from physical, visual and auditory interference. They are built and furnished in a manner that will provide people living in it some sort of flexibility between total isolation from and total exposure to the outside world.

Each individual occupies an area called "bubble" or personal space. This personal space may be big or small depending on individual needs and circumstances such as: personality, age and cultural background. Any interference into one's invisible space may be viewed as a threat to one's right for privacy.

The History of both Russia and Okraine

These country began with the establishment of a state at Kiev in the A>D> 800's. Kiev was an important trading center on the Dnepr's River.It became the first state of Russia.

Poland conquered the western part of the Ukraine during the 1400's. During this time, the region became known as the Ukraine, meaning frontier. Many men of the region do not want to be ruled by the poles. They fled east and form a group of soldier- outlaws called Cossacks. The Cossacks fought the Poles many times, but they were unable to free the Ukraine from Polish rule.

For the next three hundred years, Poland, Russia, and Turkey fought for control of the Ukraine. During the 1700's, most of the Ukraine came under Russian rule in spite of strong Ukrainian opposition.

In 1917, near the end of the world war 1, the Ukrainians set up their own government at Kiev. But by 1921, Russia had restored its control over the Ukraine. The region became one of the original republics when t6he Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was formed in1922.In 1945, after World War11, Russia took over parts of the Ukraine that belong to Czechoslovakia and Poland. Underground opposition to Russian rule continued for several years after the War. Many Ukrainians still oppose Russian rule.

10 Smart Packing Tip

Smart is more important than ever to ensure that each and every trip will be hassle-free, at least regarding to your luggage.

1. Plan Ahead- Know what weather to expect and your activities might be, then pack the right clothes for the climate and your events. Ignore the urges to add" but what if..... items.

2. Pack Less-Pack only 3 pairs of quick drying underwear that can be washed out and dried overnight" one to wear and to wash, and a spare. Expect to wear each outer clothes item more than one. Choose versatile pieces than can be worn in different combination.

3. Pack a go Anywhere wardrobe- Bring clothes that blend in with the local population and provide safety from those who target tourists. For example modest necklines for women, long pants, or skirts, and shirts with a collar and sleeves.

4. Take Comfortable Shoe You will not have a good time of your feet hurt. Three pairs of shoes are the maximum for most trips one to wear and two to pack.

5. Choose the right back for the trip- Structures bags with wheels protect the contents and offer independence in air parts, while structured bags without wheels are generally easier to squish into a small places, like a trunk of a car.

6.Know the current Airline Rules- To avoid additional fees and confusion at the airport. Understand how many pieces of luggage may be check plus the maximum dimensions and allowable weight for each bag. Call your airline for the latest information.

7.Pack Smart- Use smart packing tricks to fit items into your luggage in the most space-efficient way. And to provide easy visibility during security checks.

8. Group small items in see-through containers or in self-sealing plastic bags. Pack less to speed the security check process-an over packed bags takes longer to manually expect and is more difficult to repack.

9. Travel light- Two smaller bag are usually easier to manage than one larger bag. Wheels are great on smooth terrain,but you must still be able to carry your bag on rough streets and up steep flights of stairs.

10. Take a lock- Today's airport security requires luggage to be unlocked, but pack a lock so you can secure your bag at your destination.

At The Time of Typhoon Ondoy

Until now my family don't forget the way when typhoon Ondoy was attack in our country. We are really traumatized with it Specially my 2 childrens. At the preseason  peak of Typhoon Ondoy last Saturday night Sept.26, there was a wide flooding around metro manila areas including Valenzuela City were we live. The sorroundings are very dark ,no electricity , and the water inside our rented house was untill our thighs and outside was over our head.When Me and my husband decide to left our rented home the water outside was until our head. My 2 childrens was crying because they don't know how to swim. They afraid that we would be die. The force of flowing water  was really frightening us. We don't see any rescuer to rescued us. But we need to evacuate because the flow of the water was keep on rising, that was around 1:00 in the dawn or madaling araw in tagalog. I told my children they must have strenghten their own if not we all die. And thanks God We reached to the police station, upstairs  was a temporary evacuation center. We stayed their for 2 nights and 1 day.  At the 2nd day , the water was till our breast outside but we need to go back home to see if our home has no water anymore,  so that we can back home as soon as possible. Thanks God our home was no water anymore but outside still deep. And at early in the morning on the same day we clean our house. At last were back home again. By the help and guidance of our Lord Jesus Christ were save and were at home now. Even though some of our important thing was down to flood We don't mind it ,the most important is were save, and still alive untill now . Praise God He's so Wonderful, and merciful. Thank You- Thank You Lord forsaken and saving my family in times of calamity and disaster.

But this experienced was led to us specially my childrens they really traumatized. I hope God's will Healed us. And also hoping that we can save more money again to buy again something that was lost us.

Not only my family are the victims of the rare typhoon many Filipinos are really affected and others are died when saving their nieghbors, and when their house was took by the flowing water. And many are victims of flash floods and landslides. To those who are generous help, and donated cash or in kind thank you very-very much.  Hope you continued helping others thats in need.

Helping Families

Let face the truth. Filipino enter the Nursing Profession not necessarily because of their inherent calling to serve the sick and the injured, but primarily to work in the United States. Unpatriotic as it may sound, the Filipino Nurses quest to work is unselfishly premised on helping their families.

That's the truth that we all know. Isn't it?

Writing News Report

You know that a newspaper report contains news stories or reports about a variety of subjects. It tells about recent events of interest and importance. It provides accurate fact's and seldom the writer's opinion. Most importantly, it answers the Ws and S question- Who was involved? What happened? When did it happen? Where did it happen? Why did it happen? How did it happen?

As a child grows into a young teenager, more changes occur. The teen years dubbed as the most difficult period for an individual because of many adjustment that have to be done.

Marriage Life

The birth of a new baby is only one example of a family member. When older brothers and sister marry, they may bring their wives and husbands to live with the family. Relatives, a cousin, or a grandparent, may come to live with the family.

This will require the old and new members to make some adjustments. New division of household work, new routines, new schedule. These adjustments are necessary to make things for both parties a lot easier.

Adjusting to a new member is no easy to job, but once you get used to being with the new member, you will realize that having fun and interesting.
