Spider Gets Viral

Spiders are air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs and chelicerae with fangs that inject venom. They are the largest order of arachnids and rank seventh in total species diversity among all other groups of organisms. Spiders are found worldwide on every continent except for Antarctica.

There are many thousand different kinds of spiders. All spiders have eight legs. Most spiders have eight eyes but some have fewer than eight. They don't have ears, they feel the sound vibrations with tiny hairs on their legs. Their bodies have two parts, the head and the abdomen. The abdomen is plump. Spider blood is light blue. Blood fills up all the empty space in the spider's body, it helps to keep the legs stiff so the spider can walk. Spiders breathe, too. As spiders grow, they molt. That means they shed their old skin and grow a new one. They molt many times before they become adults. Many spiders live for only one year but some, like tarantulas can live much longer. Spiders come in different sizes. Some are fuzzy and others are smooth, and they come in many different colors. Spiders live in many different kinds of places, water, gardens, houses, and the ground. They live where it is hot and where it is cold. They live where it is wet and where it is dry. Some are poisonous and others are not. They all eat insects and some other animals.

But , here’s a funny (at least for me it’s funny & cute) story about the spider that gets viral in the internet world lately and I can’t help but share it..

Hope you enjoy watching!!

17 Ways to Crank Up Your Sexual Energy

Bringing your erotic side to the surface when you're out of bed is the key to being more turned on when you do go skin-to-skin.Here, 17 ways to unleash it.- by Anna Davies-

 1. Do your makeup and hair sans clothing. Some good naked time gets you in tune with your body first thing, so you're more aware of the sensations you feel throughout the next 12 hours.

2. Put on a racy bra-and-pantie set to wear to work. Knowing you have a sexy secret switches on the sultry side of your brain.

3. Spray on a perfume you usually wear when you go out with your guy (scent is connected to emotions, so a whiff can bring back memories of hot nights with him).

4. Wear your hair down. Feeling the strands against your face puts you in a more flirtatious than when your hair is pulled into a low-key pony.

5. Have a lust-packed lunch. Magnesium is a lust boosting nutrient; find it in basil, spinach and chocolate.

6. Get a quickie massage at the nail salon. It'll prime your skin for bliss.

7. Listen to an erotic podcast. Hearing sex describe releases a cocktail of hormones in the brain, causing your libido to sky rocket.

8. They may seem like a cheesy office-grab-bag gift,but get one of those wire head massage tools. The scalp is an erogenous zone, so indulge in a scratch session.

9. Stretch yourself-yoga can ignite your sex drive. A pose to try:the Bound Angle. While setting on the ground, place the soles of your feet together, rest your hands on your ankles, lean forward and allow your knees to drop. It opens your hips and gets you focusing on your nether direction.

10. Take a bath using cucumber-scented gel- the scent is aphrodisiac.

11. Steal one of his already-worn sweat -shirts and wear it to and from the gym or just bumming around the house. Research  found that just a whiff of his sweat may rev up arousal.

12. Take a spinning class. Sit in thr front, and really go for it-competition raises testosterone in women, meaning you'll be more than ready for a sweaty romp in the sack later.

13 Sport a red cami under a blazer, spring for a pair of cherry-colored skinnies, or get a crimson pedi. According to research, wearing crimson hue can make you feel foxier.

14. While putting on hand cream, press the point on your wrist just below your pinkie for 30 seconds or so. In acupressure, this spot is linked to sexual response.

15. When you get home, light scented candles and have a glass of red wine. Not only does giving your room a lounge-y look add to the atmosphere, but some studies show that the vino may increase blood flow, which would include to the below-the-belt region.

16. While you're at it, order a spicy dish, like thai or Indian, for dinner-another delicious way to get even more in the mood.

17. Sleep nude. To be even more aware of your body, turn off the airconditioner, open the windows, and feel the breeze on your skin..

Thanks for Cosmo, reading magazine really inspires and helps me in (fashion, personality, career, sex issues and more).  and ohhh... FYI even talking about sex can turn you on;)

Confession of a Sociopath

Sociopathy in common usage, refers to condition similar to or synonymous with the conditions of Psychopathy, Antisocial Personality Disorder & Dissocial Personality Disorder.

Psychopathy is a personality or mental disorder characterized partly by antisocial behavior, a diminished capacity of remorse and poor behavioral controls.

Antisocial Personality Disorder however, is characterized by a pervasive pattern of disregard for, and violation of, the rights of others that begins in childhood or early adolescence that continues into adulthood.

Dissocial Personality Disorder on the other hand is defined as a conceptually similar disorder to Antisocial personality disorder.

As i was reading an article of Diagnosed sociopath M.E. Thomas is an author, law professor and founder of sociopath.com, i can't help but wanted to share it, i was surprise and horrified with the confession's, Bless there heart my prayer's are for them, here's what i read:

She's a successful law professor and a Sunday school teacher, with a host of family and friends. But there interpersonal calculus centers on how to manipulate and outmaneuver the many people in her life. Welcome to a world of ruthless cost-benefit analysis, charm and grandiosity.

 I have never killed anyone, but i have certainly wanted to. I may have disorder, but i am not crazy. In a world filled with gloomy, mediocre nothings populating a go-nowhere rat race, people are attracted to my exceptionalism like months to a flame. This is my story.

Once while visiting Washington, D.C., I used an escalator that was closed, and a Metro worker tried to shame me about it.

Him: "Didn't you see the yellow gate?"
Me: "Yellow gate?"
Him: "I just put the gate up, and you were supposed to walk around it!"
Me: [Silence. My face was blank.]
Him: "That's trespassing! It's wrong to trespass! The escalator is closed, you broke the law!"
Me: [I stare at him silently.]
Him: [Visibly rattled by my lack of reaction] "Well, next time, you don't trespass okay?"

It was not okay. In explaining their horrible actions, people often say that they "just snapped." I know that feeling. I stood there for a moment, letting my rage reach that decision-making part of my brain, and i suddenly became filled with a sense of calm purpose. I blinked my eyes and set my jaw. I started following him. Adrenaline started flowing; my mouth tasted metallic. I fought to keep my peripheral vision in focus, hyperaware of everything around me, trying to predict the movement of the crowd. I was hoping that he would walk into a deserted hallway where i would find him alone. I felt so sure of myself, so focused on this one thing I had to do. An image sprang to mind: my hands wrapped around his neck, my thumbs digging deep into his throat, his life slipping away under my unrelenting grasp. How right that would feel. But i know I had been in a megalomaniacal fantasy. And in the end it didn't matter; I lost sight of him.

Mosquitoes a Blood Sucking Vampire

This summer, a mosquito bite maybe a lot worse than annoying. Thanks in part of Climate change helping this bugs breed among us in record numbers. Their itchy, irritating bites and nearly ubiquitous presence can ruin a backyard barbecue or a hike in the woods. They have an uncanny ability to sense our murderous intentions, taking flight and disappearing milliseconds before a fatal swat. 
Beyond the nuisance factor, mosquitoes are carriers, or vectors, for some of humanity’s most deadly illnesses, and they are public enemy number one in the fight against global infectious disease, the disease that cause millions of  death world wide every year. Here's a look at four diseases that mosquitoes been spreading and that's going viral:

1. Dengue Fever or some called it the "breakbone" fever because it can cause severe joint pain, dengue comes with high fever and headaches, eye pain, rashes and bleeding

2. West Nile - It comes with high fever, headache, abdominal pain, diarrhea, nausea, convulsions, muscle aches rash and vision loss. Worst thing will happen is that the neurological effects may be permanent. 

3. Chikungunya - It has been spreading in Italy and France and will probably come soon to the East Coast, chikungunya causes debilitating fever, headache, fatigue, vomiting, muscle pain, rash and joint pain.

4. Rift Valley Fever - It bring s fever, headache, muscle pain, dizziness, vision loss, and encephalitis (inflamation of the brain, which can lead to coma and seizures).

Prevention primarily means buying fitted screens for your windows and doors, cleaning the surroundings and stocking up on DEET.

Body Odor

Body Odor is not exactly a topic of polite conversation, but it doesn't have to be. If you got it, you know it. You probably eager to get rid of it.

In some cultures and countries, intense body odor is considered to be a desirable characteristic, signifying sexual attractiveness and potency. 

Body odor begins with sweat. The body has two types of sweat glands, both of which produce sweat that is made up largely of water. The eccrine glands, which are located on almost every part of the body and the apocrine glands which are located in the armpits, around the nipples and in the groin produce sweat whose function is unclear, it contains a substantial amount of oil, which provides food for bacteria. It's this bacterial feeding frenzy that causes unwelcome odor.

Here are 5 deodorizing tips that may help:

* Wash problem areas frequently - at least once a day.
* Wash your clothing after each wearing.
* Try a deodorant. If that doesn't seem to eliminate the problem, buy some antiperspirant.
* If antiperspirants and deodorants irritate your skin, try using an antibacterial soap, antibiotic ointment, baking soda or talcum powder.
* Eliminate sweat-and-odor producing foods from your diet such as spicy food etc..

Infant Eczema

I was horrified when i first saw my baby's face filled with  red bumps that look like pimples its on his cheeks, forehead and temples, i went to the doctor right away when i found it get worst it covers all over his face, but the doctor said its eczema and there is no treatment  needed for infant eczema, it will come and go, just wash it with water two or three time daily, pat it dry, and it will clear within a few weeks or month.
True enough it clears up within a few weeks, but it did came back a month after and it was bigger this time and it tends to get worst when his fussy or crying or maybe his fussy and crying because its itchy i can tell it is itchy he keep scratching his face and his stomach this time its covers his body too and it looks so alarming and then again i went to his doctor and ask if there's anything we can do about it because he can't no longer sleep good.

Finally the doctor gave us prescription it was 1% hydrocortisone (Aveeno) and advise us not to gave baby a bath everyday for the soap can make his skin dries up even of its a baby soap and so i did and finally its clears up although sometimes the roughness is still there.

I learned that the reason for that is the mothers hormones  that still circulating in the baby's system and also the pores of newborns aren't completely develop, making them easy targets for infiltration by dirt and the resultant blossoming of blemishes.

Pregnancy and Risk

My journey to motherhood was an overwhelming feeling yet scary, good thing i doesn't have morning sickness, craving and aversions as people keep on asking me about, or not yet:) i just enjoyed my pregnancy ate right, sleep right, periodic visit of my ob gynecologist & trying to stay fit. Sounds easy isn't it?:)

But not until my second trimester that i have to get up from bed so late at night and again too early in the morning to just to pee (frequent urination), my tummy gets bigger and gets tighter and noticeably heavy that i can feel the real pregnancy (As much as i want to share my before and after baby bump pictures, id decided not to even i think its cute but it might be looks gross for some!!:)), this time the gender of the baby is being revealed and yes, we have a baby boy on his way, and i can already feel his kicks God knows how those little kicks makes me happy, although i am still grateful i haven't had those morning sickness, nauseous or any of those crazy cravings like asking for a sweet salt!!! lol

Third Trimester is indeed a very remarkable experience to me, all the emotions, discomforts specially swelling,  baby's kicking is getting harder and it hurts, heartburn and indigestion & contractions., added to it was my being anxious about where will i gave birth, i was live in Cebu at that time because my work was there but most of my Family are in Davao yet i am in Manila for my embassy interview and was hoping to get the visa before my due. 

All are being cleared out during the 8th month when finally im already here in the US that i know i will deliver my baby here but one thing i didn't know and anticipate is the possibility of the pre-eclampsia, even though i remember my OB Gynecologist in Cebu mentioned it to me but i didn't bother to study and think about it that much because i was thinking i was healthy and as long as i ate good and watch my diet and follow doctors advises i will be ok but the truth is its not and pregnant woman should not ignore it for it can lead to organ failure and death..

Here's what i learn about pre-eclampsia:

            Preeclampsia is an abnormal pregnancy condition characterized by high blood pressure. This condition also can include protein in the urine and swelling. Lack of treatment can lead to organ failure and death. The only cure for this condition is delivery of the child.

             Preeclampsia occurs when a pregnant woman has high blood pressure and protein in her urine at any point after her 20th week of pregnancy. This condition is also called toxemia or pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH). It only occurs during pregnancy, although in some cases, it can occur earlier than the 20th week.

That is what happen to me and the reason why my OB Gynecologist advice me to have me induce and deliver my baby right after she check me up. Now my baby and i are both healthy even i deliver him 3 weeks earlier than his due.
