Meet the Spartans - Movie Review


The heroic Leonidas, armed with nothing by leather underwear and a cape, leads a ragtag group of 13--count ‘em, 13!--Spartans to defend their homeland against the invading Persians (whose ranks include Ghost Rider, Rocky Balboa, the Transformers, and a hunchbacked Paris Hilton--no one is safe when the Spartans take on the biggest icons in pop culture).

I'm dying to watch this movie, I hope it'll be the next picture in the movie house soon.

Dollar vs Phillippine Peso (PhP)

US Dollar (USD) vs Phillippine Peso (PhP)

US Dollar as we all know money used in the US. ahaha...obvious! US Dollar nga eh. This currency is used to buy anything in World Market you can't buy using peso also in the world wide web (www). Mostly dollar is credited in your credit cards when you purchase anything in the internet. The world market accepts only dollar.

Peso is the currency used here in our country Philippines. As of today January 28, 2008. The exchange rate is $1=PhP40.90. It is so hard for the Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) who earned Dollar because the last time I remember that was year 2005 the Dollar hit $1=PhP56.00, the dollar s strength is declining nowadays.

The bad thing there is dollar exchange gets smaller and the price commodities here in our country is increasing. Like the Gasoline.

BDO Kabayan Account

Banco de Oro

I've been a member of this bank since my girlfriend left and went abroad. She decided whenever she will send money to her family, she will send through bank. So I opened a bank account in Banco de Oro - Rizal Branch here in Davao City in my name. I am happy because it only took 5mins and I have my bank book and ready to use, but I choose an account with ATM Card. The ATM Card will be release after 1 week from the date of application. I opened an account to BDO Kabayan.
Banco de Oro has many branches :
• Cabanatuan • Pampanga
• Mountain Province • Quezon
Banco de Oro is expanding right now, they merge with the Equitable PCI Bank...

Motorola C119...

Motorola C119

I bought this cellphone last wednesday. I checked it if it function well, after I scrutinized this unit. I found out there are menus that doesn't work. example of this is the screen saver. Even if I choose the screen saver motorola batwing, ang waited for 1min for the delay. nothing happens its always the digital clock that appears in the screen.

It is a cheap phone. it has no MMS like the 3G phones in the market right now. All I want is to have a cellphone which I can use for communicating-the real essence of a mobile unit.

Those who have this kind of cellphones 'I hope there is' have you check the menus yet? or no?

Himalayan Goji juice

The World's Most Powerful Food

Did you know that in some remote places in this world, a life expectancy of more than 100 years is not uncommon?
Research has shown that many of the world's longest living people consume regular daily helpings of a tiny red fruit that may just be the world's most powerful food the goji berry.
FreeLife® is the first company to perfect a difficult and demanding proprietary extraction process and create the only standardized form of this incredible plant available in the world today:

K-Link 'Liquid Chlorophyll'

K-Liquid Chlorophyll’s three main benefits:
1. Cleansing - refers to detoxification and eliminating impurities from our body.
2. Regulating - balances the hormones, acid and alkaline in our body.
3. Nourishing - provides nutrients for healthy blood to increase the oxygen level and red blood count.

What is Chlorophyll?

Chlorophyll is life’s natural elixir contained in the green pigment of plants. In the process known as “photosynthesis”, chlorophyll in green plants traps and stores the energy of sunlight, together with carbon dioxide in the air, water and minerals from the soil to produce food. The energy is required to convert water and carbon dioxide into glucose – the chief source of energy for living organisms.



CMD is the most powerful, health-giving mineral and trace mineral food supplement formulated by nature for greater bio-electric health and body mineral balancing. In today's modern, fast-paced society, supplying our bodies with the minerals they require is difficult. Many of the food we eat are grown in mineral deficient soil. Added to this, modern food processing techniques further strip important minerals like magnesium, potassium and boron - minerals that play key roles in our health. The truth is we may be eating a perfectly balanced diet and still be deficient in minerals and trace minerals. Supplementing your diet with CMD can replenish your body with the important nutrients that it may be lacking.

City of the Future?

Dubai isn't just remaking its skyline, explains Lee Smith—it's becoming the Arab world's most ambitious social and economic experiment

From October 2004

By Lee Smith

In the past few years, Dubai—the most glamorous of the United Arab Emirates' seven sheikhdoms—has become famous for forward-thinking hotels such as the sail-shaped Burj Al Arab, and audacious building projects such as the Palm and the World, two massive collections of man-made islands that are taking shape offshore. On my recent visit to the emirate, people were buzzing about yet another new development, a $5 billion entertainment complex called Dubailand that will be built in the desert. Scheduled to open in 2007, Dubailand will include aquatic- and dinosaur-themed amusement parks, a space-age hotel, and the world's largest shopping center.

All this is part of ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum's plan to wean the local economy off its dependence on oil, in part through tourism. According to the World Tourism Organization, Dubai had the world's highest growth rate in tourism in 2002. Last year, the emirate attracted nearly 5 million visitors, 38 percent more than in 2001. Dubailand is expected to boost tourism to 20 percent of the emirate's GDP.

Dubai's diversified economy—with large investments in the technology and information industries as well as tourism—has made it an increasingly popular place for international companies to do business, but what struck me most in Dubai was how much the city's ongoing transformation is being debated. Locals are wondering what kind of future Dubai is building toward—and whether it's one they want.

"There has to be more to a place than doing business," Jihad Fakhreddine, an analyst at the Pan-Arab Research Center, told me one afternoon at his office. The 47-year-old Lebanese expatriate had recently returned from Iraq, where he'd conducted polling for Gallup International. "I felt more attracted and attached to Baghdad after forty days than I do to Dubai after thirteen years." Unlike Iraq, Dubai is stable and rich, but what concerns Fakhreddine is that the emirate's cultural com- placency may shape the future of the Arab world. "There is no interest here in forming a culture that would make this country unique," he said. "We aren't asking things like, 'What does it mean to be an Arab? Is Dubai even an Arab city at all?'"

That is a complicated question. With between 80 and 90 percent of Dubai's population made up of foreign workers, from Pakistani laborers to Western executives, the answer is: maybe not. "Dubai's fundamental issue is demographic," Abdelkhaleq Abdulla, an Emirati native who runs a political science think tank, told me a few days later. "How can locals accept that they're a minority in their own country? Yet the economy is tied to the presence of expats.

"There are a lot of locals who look to the past and think the old ways were best," Abdulla continued. "And there are also a lot of people worried about the future. They're afraid the bubble will burst and everyone will go home."

While there is concern that the Islamist insurgency in Saudi Arabia could cause problems throughout the Persian Gulf, it is precisely Dubai's building boom that may make Abdulla's nightmare scenario less plausible. Much of the emirate's pricey new real estate—a substantial portion of developments such as the Palm—is being purchased by non-Arab, non-Muslim foreigners, giving them a greater stake in the city's future.

It's not far-fetched to think that outsiders could someday play as important a part in Dubai's political life as they have in its economy. The emirate may be a model of openness in the region, but it still suffers from a democracy deficit. And since Westerners are accustomed to political participation in their homelands, one possible incentive to keep the expat labor force in Dubai could well be democracy. "Political participation is the next step for us," Abdulla told me. "It has to come."

The question remains whether a multi-ethnic, democratic society really is possible here. Of course, that's exactly what the 21st century was supposed to look like, before September 11 left many wondering if it would instead become a jet-age reprise of historic clashes. After visiting Dubai, I found it reassuring to find that this is, in fact, a place—in the Arab world, no less—still considering that once-shared vision of the future.
