The Bane of Technology

Technology plays an important part of our daily lives. In communication, travel, education, business, lifestyle, games, automotive, etc., technology gives us an edge over others. To be part of this fast-pacing world, we learned to accept technology and it becomes a vital part of our life. Behind all the good things technology has to offer, we should not forget the dangers posed by those technologies to our lives - the bane of technology.

Hostile Entertainment (3-D or 4-D)

The same children's movie franchise that helped steer 3-D films into the mainstream media is kicking it up a notch for their latest installment. "Spy Kids: All the Time in the World" will be released in 4-D. Using an aromascope, technology previously relegated to theme parks and John Waters' 1980s film "Polyester," audience members will be able to smell what the characters are smelling by wiping their fingers across a card and taking a sniff.

Anivia Wallpapers | The Cryophoenix, HD Wallpapers, Desktop Backgrounds

Seeing the imbalance and injustice on Runeterra, a world lacking elemental protectors, Anivia took residence at the League of Legends.

Anivia is an immortal being of intense power. She can instantly freeze a path in front of her, covering all in its wake with thick frost – she can even force the cold to violently explode, throwing razor sharp ice shards in every direction. She can also concentrate this ability on a single enemy, riddling his flesh with deep frostbite. The cryophoenix can also summon a glacial storm, a blizzard of terrible fury that both harms and slows those within. When defense is needed, Anivia can create an impassible barrier of ice. Furthermore, Anivia can never die. Whenever she is killed, she simply transforms into an egg, waiting to be reborn.

Pagerank Update June 2011

If you owned many blogs or websites, you will certainly notice that Pagerank has updated. Yes! The confirmed latest PR update is June 27, 2011. This time, it brings good news to my blog because Scolex Portal is now at PR2.

During the January 2011 PR update, i was very frustrated because I've expected my blog will reach PR2 or PR3 but sad to note it was glued at PR0. The minor updates happened during April did not affect my PR.

I heard a lot of websites and blogs have been affected by this Google Toolbar Pagerank update. Some websites gain PR while others have been affected adversely. Minus 1, 2 or the worst minus 3.

Ocarina of Time 3D Review | The Legends of Zelda

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D by Nintendo is a remake of the Nintendo 64 classic The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. This will be the first 3D title in the Legend of Zelda series.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D Review:

I'll admit, the facelift has a lot to do with it. I thought that the original looked muddy to begin with, and recent advances in audio-visual technology have done little to help its cause. Admittedly, they didn't torpedo the entire game, but they did exacerbate the fact that the story doesn't really get moving until Link is an adult.

Ocarina of Time 3D fixes those issues with higher-resolution textures and a few other effects; and while they don't quite bring it to the level of Twilight Princess (or even Wind Waker), they sure do look nice. Castle Town, for instance, is no longer just a blurry mass of color, but an actual city with recognizable storefront. It also helps that Ocarina really nails the 3D effect, giving them a pop that w…

College Life: Trials and Challenges

Too much pressure will lead to anxiety in learning. This is the common problem especially to college students wherein some of them failed to overcome the trials and challenges in college life. This is where also students have woes about the pressure they had encountered in their journey.

College life is where students find it difficult and the worst is the terrorism of the instructors. The subjects were difficult to pass and added by the instructors’ terrorism hard to ride on. I do believe that all students had suffered in their college endeavor. The role of the teacher is to help learners to learn and should bring them into the world of learning but in some cases, the teacher failed to help the learners instead brought them too much pressure. Giving lots of requirements not considering the time, giving cover to cover exam, and the most painful thing is receiving with a grade of 5; are the top woes of the students. It’s very frustrating knowing you have done your efforts to accompli…

Education: The Outcome of Learning

Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance”. To establish learning, one should be educated. It is the education that makes a man complete. One individual will cease to grow and it is part of growing up to have learning and understanding about our surroundings and to attain education.

The Importance of Marriage

One way of proving love is to offer marriage; a lifetime commitment in which two people are tied together to share lasting and enduring relationship that is fully backed by the society but in today’s situation, marriage will never become an assurance to sustain lifetime commitment and even lead to a broken vow.

The only institution that allows two people to establish lasting and enduring love is marriage. This is a vow made by man and a woman to live lifetime as husband and wife in which contract is present as evidence of their vows.

We Filipinos are being taught about the importance of marriage. It is being taught that marriage first before engaging sex; the God’s law. It is important because it is somehow following God’s commandments. “TRUE LOVE WAITS”, the common quotation that is being addressed among us. Looking back during 1960s, this was being practiced among people for they believed Christianity as conservative one. The question is… is this practiced nowadays?
