Load cells play numerous vital roles within the automotive spectrum. Load cells help to keep passengers safe, and they help to ensure that the vehicle performs at its maximum abilities.
I haven’t been posting much lately. It’s because I have been busy helping mount two tech-related events since early October.
Last month, my friends Andrew, Chattee, Mark, Renz, Anj, Brendel and I organized WordCamp Philippines 2012 which was held at the Asian Institute of Management in Makati City.
Two weeks later, Andrew, Brendel and I joined Dulce, Eric, Gay, and Angel in organizing the first Startup Weekend in Mindanao. Davao City proved to be fertile grounds for talented designers and skilled developers.
Globe Telecom, through its Corporate Social Responsibility arm Globe Bridging Communities, is joining the Philippine Eagle Foundation (PEF) in its effort to reforest the natural habitat of the critically-endangered Philippine Eagle in Arakan, North Cotabato by launching the Globe Arakan XC biking challenge.
The 60-kilometer biking challenge aims to raise funds to support Philippine Eagle Foundation’s Forest Corridor Development Program as well as create public awareness and understanding of wildlife conservation issues.
After more than a decade since it first opened a mall in the city, the biggest mall chain in the country will be launching its second mall in Davao City on September 28, 2012.
Brendel and I see eye to eye on many things except on coffee and donuts. She’s a coffee addict. I, on the other hand, don’t like coffee as it makes me sleepy. I also think coffee smells a lot like puppy breath.
On the subject of donuts, I loved it when I was younger but my palate eventually outgrew my fondness for anything sweet. Meanwhile, my coffee-drinking girlfriend can’t get enough of Go Nuts Donut’s pastillas de leche with her brew.
The Kinect for Xbox 360 is a motion-sensing device developed by Microsoft. Officially launched in November 2010, the Kinect for Xbox 360 enables users to engage in full body interactive gameplay.
The great thing about the Kinect for Xbox 360 is that it allows you to control the Xbox with hand gestures and voice commands. This means you can play your favorite games, listen to music, and watch movies on the Xbox without the need for a controller.
Aside from providing a controller-free entertainment, what’s wonderful about the Kinect is that you can play and have fun with it even if you are not a serious gamer. It was designed to provide full entertainment for everyone so rest assured you’ll never run out of awesome Kinect games to play.
Four blogger teams embarked on an epic journey to 28 destinations around Davao City. Follow their adventures below.
Close to a hundred students from various colleges and universities in Davao city will be participating in a three-day leadership camp beginning today until June 29th.
Initiated by the Ayala Foundation, Inc. (AFI) in partnership with Globe Telecom, the Leadership Communities (LeadCom) Program aims to hone and empower students into becoming future leaders through skills and competencies training.
Davao Bloggers Dulce Rose Lada, Ria Abella Jose, Kaiser Mangampo and this blogger attended a two-day seminar entitled “Generation Change Project.”
It is a youth-led global network dedicated to empowering the next generation of innovators and leaders. It provides a platform for the free exchange of ideas across borders and cultures, and a community of peers and mentors who use their collective resources to positively impact communities locally and globally.
Generation Change conferences are being held in the United States and around the world, and this conference is designed to link the Philippines to the global project.
The Davao seminar was organized by Ateneo de Davao University in partnership with the U.S. Embassy Manila.
Much has been written about the spectacle between Senator Judge Miriam Defensor-Santiago and Private Prosecutor Vitaliano Aguirre.
The Senate, acting as an impeachment court, has cited the Private Prosecutor in contempt of court. Last I read, the Senators are mulling a penalty of 24-hour imprisonment. Some Senators are “playfully” suggesting an additional punishment of forcing Aguirre to listen to tapes of the feisty Senator’s speeches.
In citing Aguirre for contempt, Senator Juan Ponce Enrile reiterated the importance of respect. He added that any sign of disrespect to the court or to any of its members, “can’t be allowed to pass and must be dealt with according to the rules.”
Aguirre’s behavior is indeed contemptuous. However, the rules should apply equally to all parties involved.
