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.

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.
