Is a Web Development Course for You?

Friday, December 23, 2022

     As parents, one of the things that we look forward to when it comes to our son's education is the tertiary level. Aside from the career path that he will choose, we also consider other factors like the location of the school and the expenses that will incur. That's why choosing a course that is in demand and relevant five or ten years from now will always be at top of the list. Living in a modern world, surrounded by computers and gadgets, we need skilled individuals who are well-versed in the field of computers and technology. 

     If my memory serves me right, the in-demand course when I graduated from secondary school was B.S. Computer Science and twenty years later, computer-related courses are the most sought courses in college. Fast forward to today, Bachelor of Science in Information Technology with a specialization in Web Development provides students with the technical and design-related skills needed for a career in the web, software development, and computer science industries. Why take up BS in IT with a specialization in web development? Click continue to read more.

Monday, December 19, 2022

     Where your child goes to school is a big decision and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Given how their education can impact their future, you might be tempted to take control and decide for them. However, you might be doing more damage than helping them in the long run.

Here are helpful ways you can help determine the best school for your child without going overboard:

Rex Education Launches “Little Explorers” to Educate and Empower Homes on Early Childhood Education

Sunday, December 11, 2022

     Scientific studies have shown that 90% of a child’s brain development happens before the age of five. From 1 to 2 years old, babies begin to explore and discover things. At 2.5 to 3 years old, toddlers start to develop their personality and expand their vocabulary. When they turn 3.5 years old, they start to interact with other kids and adults.

     This underscores how vital early childhood education (ECE) is for every child’s lifelong learning development. In fact, a 2019 study published by Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS) found that learners who were reported to perform early literacy and numeracy tasks very well scored over one standard deviation higher than their peers who could not do these tasks well. This is proof that the urgency of calling attention to ECE is not just a local conversation, but something that is being championed in the international scene.

Let's Play and Learn Online

Monday, October 31, 2022

     Kids these days are always online that's why instead of worrying about the negative effects, take advantage of the positive ones. I'm thankful that technology has brought a lot of favorable things into our daily life and being online has helped me teach my son some of his school subjects, especially math. We all know that some kids fear math. They find numbers overwhelming and solving problems confusing. 

     I was surfing the internet months ago to look for resources and I stumbled upon a website named Calculators.org. At first, I thought it was a website about calculators but lo and behold, it's a math and educational website. I browsed the page and saw that aside from math and numbers, the gaming section of their site has some of the board games that I usually play when I was a child. It's nice to know that they offer a variety of other fun games for kids & people like me who are fond of playing these games during our childhood days.

Doubling your Child’s Immunity from the Lens of the #Promil4iShine Masters

Friday, April 01, 2022

     Does your daughter sing in tune after hearing a song play just a couple of times? Or does your son perform a Tiktok dance routine flawlessly after watching the steps on your mobile phone? Children are gifted in their own ways, and these normally manifest at an early age. Parents who spot these gifts early on can nurture them to help them reach their full potential.

     There are a lot of ways in which parents can support and nurture their gifts, but the most basic and important way to help them nowadays is to ensure they have fewer sick days and more healthy days, more opportunities to practice, rehearse and give their full commitment.

Wednesday, October 20, 2021

     Papa Sweet Sarap Banana Ketchup is here to bring an innovative new ketchup formula to the classic sweet sarap taste Filipino kids know and love. The new Papa Sweet Sarap Banana Ketchup contains vitamins B1 (thiamine), B2 (riboflavin), and B6 (pyridoxine), part of the B-complex of vitamins that perform vital tasks in the body. B1 helps release energy from the food we eat, making it extremely important for active kids. B2 is also essential in giving the body energy as it converts the food we eat into glucose to give us energy, and B6, a vitamin that is essential for the healthy functioning of the nervous system, boosts kids’ immune systems, protecting them from common childhood ailments and other health issues.

     This is especially important, as some Filipino kids still suffer from malnutrition and nutrient deficiencies in Vitamins B1, B2, and B6 – the same vitamins Papa is proud to fortify their new ketchup formula with.

6 Fun Activities for Children at Home

Monday, October 04, 2021

    Up until lately, there has been a severe bone of contention on when art started. Some art historians argued that the first art pieces’ date back to around 35,000 and 10,000 BCE. However, archaeological investigation in Blombos cave, South Africa, proves otherwise. In truth, the discovery of 70,000 old ochre art pieces indicates that art started way before cave paintings.

     Based on this information, it is evident that art has been an integral part of human life for the longest time. A recent study suggests that exposure to art activities stimulates the brain and helps in self-expression, problem-solving, concentration, and memory.

Feature: Wonderhome Naturals

Friday, June 11, 2021

     I’m a self-confessed clean freak and my husband calls me ‘foreign contaminant’ (one of the robots in Wall-E) every time he sees me cleaning non-stop at home that's why I'm so happy when receiving cleaning products for home care, personal care, and lifestyle use. Ironically, some of the cleaning products we use at home though formulated to kill dangerous germs, contain ingredients that, even with short-term use, can irritate the eyes, skin, and throat, and cause headaches, dizziness, vomiting, and trigger asthma with their strong, chemical scents. 

     Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC), gases emitted from cleaning supplies and pesticides, also pose a huge threat to our health. Long-term exposure and inhalation could lead to cancer, kidney and liver damage, as well as damage to the central nervous system. Having that said, this promising brand is leading a clean revolution and making waves of changes, not waste! Introducing Wonderhome Naturals, a proudly Filipino brand that brings home and personal care products powered by plant probiotics. More about the brand and the products they sent me below.

Herbalife Nutrition E-Wellness Tour on Inner and Outer Nutrition

Saturday, May 29, 2021

     Have you ever wondered why you easily get tired as the years go by? I think it's common for both men and women in their late 30's to experience changes in the biological functions of the body. When I was in my 20's I feel so energized even if I only have less than six hours of sleep. I can think normally and don't feel exhausted doing hour chores from day til night. Fast forward today, I'll be turning 40 soon and even if I have a restful sleep at night, my body tells me to take a nap mid-afternoon or when it's dinner time. I also noticed that my appetite goes up and down depending on my hormonal cycle.

     As the body ages, it undergoes many changes and so does the nutrition it needs. While a balanced diet and an active lifestyle are important at any age, there are challenges specific for each age that need to be addressed. In the most recent Herbalife Nutrition E-Wellness Tour, Susan Bowerman, Senior Director, Worldwide Nutrition, Education and Training of Herbalife Nutrition, and Laura Chacon-Garbato, Chairwoman of the Outer Nutrition Advisory Board of Herbalife Nutrition, shared how eating habits and lifestyle choices can affect our body and skin.

However, fruits and vegetables start to lose vitamin content from the moment they are harvested up to the time they are consumed. These vitamins are key for boosting the immune system, promoting a healthier heart, supporting healthy cognitive brain function and providing natural antioxidants to protect the body from disease.
