7 Poses That A Travel Blogger Does

Speaking of traveling, these photos were taken 6 years ago. It was an experiment travel, spending less while enjoying much. I thought it won’t work but it was successful.

Poses being done were all accompanied with fun. The thing I learned in travel blogging is for the blogger to continue exploring and capture every noteworthy moment along the adventure.

How to live in a townhouse with pets

Owning pets in a townhouse might sound exasperating for you should have a yard to have furr companion. However, once you’re determined enough in opening your doors to these loving creatures then it would really work as it works well for me having 15 – 20 heads, a mix of dogs and cats. My new house is only 50 square meters ground floor area and another 50 on its second floor with extra 10 meters of a front yard.

Others might think the house would be a total chaos, smelly, or whatsoever. To the contrary, if only you know how to make everything in order, then it’s not impossible to make your townhouse tidy while with pet/s.

Here are some tips:

  1. Invest in good quality house cleaning tools like a broom, mop, brush, water hose, and pail.
  2. Hire some helper if you have a full-time job so somebody can take charge of your pet/s while you’re away.
  3. Learn to know where’s the favorite spot of your pet in your house. That is if you’re letting your pet roam around, inside/out of your house. That spot is where your pet will do his smelly stuff.
  4. Invest a cage. Whether your pet roams freely in your house or in leash, a cage still serves best especially during occasions or whenever you have some visitors who are not animal lovers.
  5. Spend time for your pet’s exercise for them not to get bored being trap in the walls of your house whole day.
  6. Be responsible for disposing of your garbage properly.
  7. Be friendly with your neighbors. It’s expected that your pet will create some noise and your first adversary would surely be your neighbor. However, if you’re friends with them then they wouldn’t tend to have a conflict with you.
  8. Extend your patience and consider your pets as your part of the family.

It’s not easy to own a pet but if only all pet owners love their pets unconditionally and a truly animal lover, then there’s no point in having pets being abandoned.  Tips above works best on my pets, mentioning that I own 15 dogs and 1 cat now.

All About Dams | How It Exist

What is a Dam?

By definition, a dam is a barrier that stops or restricts the flow of water or underground streams. Reservoirs created by dams not only suppress floods but also provide water for activities such as irrigation, human consumption, industrial use, aquaculture, and navigability. Hydro-power is often used in conjunction with dams to generate electricity. A dam can also be used to collect water or for storage of water which can be evenly distributed between locations.

1024px-ThreeGorgesDam-China2009
The Three Gorges Dam, in China, is the world’s largest power station in terms of installed capacity (22,500 MW).

Classification (Types) of Dams Based on Purpose

1. Storage dam or Impounding dam

It is constructed to create a reservoir to store water during periods when there is huge flow in the river (in excess of demand) for utilization later during periods of low flow (demand exceeds flow in the river). Water stored in the reservoir is used for irrigation, power generation, water supply etc. By suitable operation, it can also serve as a detention dam.

2. Detention dam

It is primarily constructed to temporarily detain all or part of the flood water in a river and to gradually release the stored water later at controlled rates so that the entire region on the downstream side of the dam is protected from possible damage due to floods. It may also be used as a storage dam.

3. Diversion dam

It is constructed to divert part of or all the water from a river into a conduit or a channel. For diverting water from a river into an irrigation canal, mostly a diversion weir is constructed across the river.

4. Coffer dam

It is a temporary dam constructed to exclude water from a specific area. It is constructed on the u/s side of the site where a dam is to be constructed so that the site is dry. In this case, it behaves like a diversion dam.

5. Debris dam

It is constructed to catch and retain debris flowing in a river.

Types of Dams Based on Hydraulic Design

1. Overflow dam or Over-fall dam

It is constructed with a crest to permit overflow of surplus water that cannot be retained in the reservoir. Generally dams are not designed as overflow dams for its entire length. Diversion weirs of small height may be designed to permit overflow over its entire length.

2. Non-overflow dam

It is constructed such that water is not allowed to overflow over its crest.

In most cases, dams are so designed that part of its length is designed as an overflow dam (this part is called the spillway) while the rest of its length is designed as a non-overflow dam. In some cases, these two sections are not combined.

Types of Dams Based on Material Construction

1. Rigid Dam

It is constructed with rigid material such as stone, masonry, concrete, steel, or timber. Steel dams (steel plates supported on inclined struts) and timber dams (wooden planks supported on a wooden framework) are constructed only for small heights (rarely).

2. Non-rigid Dam (Embankment Dams)

It is constructed with non-rigid material such as earth, tailings, rockfill etc.

    • Earthen dam – gravel, sand, silt, clay etc
    • Tailings dam – waste or refuse obtained from mines
    • Rockfill dam – rock material supporting a water tight material on the u/s face
    • Rockfill composite dam – Rockfill on the d/s side and earth fill on the u/s side
    • Earthen dams are provided with a stone masonry or concrete overflow (spillway) section. Such dams are called composite dams.

In some cases, part of the length of the dam is constructed as earth dam and the rest (excluding the spillway) as a masonry dam. Such dams are called masonry cum earthen dams.

Types of Dams Based on Structural Behavior

1. Gravity Dam

It is a masonry or concrete dam which resists the forces acting on it by its own weight. Its c/s is approximately triangular in shape.

Straight gravity dam – A gravity dam that is straight in plan.

Curved gravity plan – A gravity dam that is curved in plan.

Curved gravity dam (Arch gravity dam) – It resists the forces acting on it by combined gravity action (its own weight) and arch action.

Solid gravity dam – Its body consists of a solid mass of masonry or concrete

Hollow gravity dam – It has hollow spaces within its body.

Most gravity dams are straight solid gravity dams.

Concrete Gravity Dams

2. Arch Dam

It is a curved masonry or concrete dam, convex upstream, which resists the forces acting on it by arch action.

The only arch dam in India – Idukki dam (double curvature in plan) – concrete arch dam.

3. Buttress Dam

It consists of water retaining sloping membrane or deck on the u/s which is supported by a series of buttresses. These buttresses are in the form of equally spaced triangular masonry or reinforced concrete walls or counter-forts. The sloping membrane is usually a reinforced concrete slab. In some cases, the u/s slab is replaced by multiple arches supported on buttresses (multiple arch buttress dam) or by flaring the u/s edge of the buttresses to span the distance between the buttresses (bulkhead buttress dam or massive head buttress dam). In general, the structural behavior of a buttress dam is similar to that of a gravity dam.

4. Embankment Dam

It is a non-rigid dam which resists the forces acting on it by its shear strength and to some extent also by its own weight (gravity). Its structural behaviour is in many ways different from that of a gravity dam.

    • Earth or rock
    • Weight or rock

Steps in Dam Construction

Preparation of Foundation

Sometimes, areas of weaker soils or rocks are found below the planned foundation level and these have to be removed and replaced with stronger materials

Step 1

To build a Dam the engineers must first de-water the part of the river valley in which they wish to place the dam.

This is usually achieved by diverting the river through a tunnel.
The tunnel is built through one side of the valley around the planned construction area.

A series of holes is drilled in the rock. Explosives are placed in the drill holes, blasting takes place and broken rock is then removed. This procedure is repeated many times until the tunnel is completed. Diversion tunnels are often lined with concrete.

Step 2

Work on diverting the river starts in summer when river levels are low. Earth-moving equipment is used to build a small dam (called a cofferdam) upstream of the main construction area. This acts as a barrier to the river and causes it to flow through the diversion tunnel.

Another cofferdam is built downstream of the main dam site to prevent water flowing back into the construction area.

Pumps are used to remove any water that seeps through the cofferdams.
Diversion tunnels are not always necessary when concrete dams are being built. The river can sometimes be channeled through a large pipe and the dam constructed around it.

Step 3

The construction methods used in building a dam depend on the type of dam being built. The first stage normally involves the removal of loose rock and rubble from the valley walls and river bed.

Concrete-faced rock-fill dams require a footing (or plinth) to be constructed around their upstream edge.

The plinth is made from concrete and serves as a foundation or connection
between the dam and the valley walls and floor.

It has an important role in preventing water leakage around the edges of the dam. The area under the plinth is waterproofed by drilling holes and pumping cement grout into cracks in the rock.

The thin concrete face on the upstream side of the dam is connected to the plinth via stainless steel and rubber seals called waterstops.

Step 4

During dam construction the associated power station and intake works are also being built.

When the dam is completed the diversion tunnel is closed and the lake begins to fill. The closure of the diversion tunnel has two phases.

During low flow a large re-usable steel gate is lowered across the entrance.
The diversion tunnel is then permanently blocked off by the construction of a concrete plug.

In some instances dewatering outlets are built into the plugs so water can be released during an emergency.

I’m So Blessed To Rescue These Expensive Dogs | Know Their Real Breed

Out of the many clicks, finally, I got their perfect fierce pose the way I want them to. These are Zia (Doberman Pinscher White mixed) and Corgi (Rat Terrier Brindle mixed), two out of my many rescued pets. They came from different places out of different risky situations that are the reason why I rescued and adopted them which now gave them different success stories of how they got a life like human children under my enduring care and everlasting love.

ZiaCorgi

The problem with the mentality of some individuals is the fact that they only stick to what’s typical. Since it’s typical to appreciate and own a pet dog with a commonly known breed of high standards, then they easily identify street dogs in the country as Askal. Yes, it’s true as Askal stands for “Asong Kalye” which means street dogs. However, to define, Askal is not a breed. Hence, never give less of a value to every street dogs you’ve found anywhere as they have their own distinctive breeds higher than what you can think of.

Why these dogs are superbly incomparable?

I totally dislike talking to anybody who would take a street dog for granted thinking that they are not comparable with what are commonly high valued breeds in our locality. Nevertheless, I thoroughly agree that we cannot compare Askal to breeds like Siberian Husky, Bulldog, German Shepherd, Pug, Japanese Spitz, Chow-chow, Rottweiler, Labrador, Retriever, Doberman, Beagle, etc. since Askal or the street dogs in our community is superbly incomparable to these typically popular dog breeds with a price tag. Why incomparable? Incomparable in a sense that their distinct breed is way more strenuous to find which made them a one of kind but once identified, it would really be an exquisite veracity and a humble slap in the face to those who devalued them.

If I have to buy, I can’t afford my rescued pet dogs

Just like my Zia and Corgi. On the viewpoint of the many, they are just Askal but the breeds of this Asong Kalye have now been identified and to my surprise, I’m so blessed to own pets of as expensive as them as, to be honest, I cannot afford buying a White Doberman Pinscher which has a US worth of ₱25,000 to ₱50,000 nor a Brindle Rat Terrier which has a US worth of ₱20,000 to ₱40,000.

As for Zia, the White Doberman Pinscher mixed, she belongs to a working dog group who has a great deal of energy and needs a lot of exercises standing up to 26 inches tall and weighing up to 80 pounds. She has the temperament of being obedient, fearless, intelligent, alert, energetic, loyal, and confident. While Corgi, the Brindle Rat Terrier mix, she has the personality of being friendly, lovable, inquisitive, and a fearlessly game for just about anything having a very active energy level. She is a miniature type standing up to only 13 inches tall and weighing up to 25 pounds.

Askal no more here comes Aspin

Now, who says they are Askal? Oh, before I forgot, since Asong Kalye (Askal) is just so broad that can stand for street dogs in another country, instead of saying Askal, why not generalize our street dogs as Aspin? Aspin stands for Asong Pinoy. This way, we now have the authority to claim the general name of our one of a kind street dogs which, at the same time, boost their typical value while their real breed still has to be identified.

What’s your pet dog breed then? Submit us a photo and we will identify it.

NOPH New Building Tsada | Ubang Empleyado Kulang sa Disiplina

Kini nga sinulat mahitungod sa Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital (NOPH) dili binayran ug walay gi dapigan. Usa lamang kini ka tinud-anay nga pahayag basi sa nasinati sa usa ka pasyente sa maong ospital nga naadmit niadtong June 22-24, 2017.

(This article about Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital (NOPH) is neither a paid propaganda nor a biased publicity. It is simply the honest confession based on real incident experienced by a patient who was admitted last June 22-24, 2017).

1

Ang pasyente nga nagsaysay niining maong hitabo usa ka mabdos nga nanganak ug usa ka himsog nga batang babaye niadtong kadlawon  sa June 23, 2017 sa maong naasoy nga ospital, siya kasamtangang lumulupyo sa Cangmating, Sibulan, Negros Oriental. Natumbok ang maong kakulangan sa disiplina sa ubang emplyedo sa Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital tungod sa mga panghitabo nga gisaysay ning mosunod:

(The patient telling this incident was a pregnant woman who delivered a healthy baby girl in the dawn of June 23, 2017 in the said hospital, she is currently living in Cangmating, Sibulan, Negros Oriental. The lack of discipline on some NOPH employees has been identified due to the following situations as iterated):

Situation #1:

2

June 23, 2017 sa mga alas 10 kapin sa buntag ang takna, ang naasoy nga pasyente nga bag-ong nanganak kalit-kalit nga gipabalhin sa usa ka Nursing Aide sa NOPH new building gikan sa semi-private nga lawak padulong sa ward sa rason nga kuno ang pasyente dli makabayad sa mahalon nga kwarto. Miasoy ang pasyente kuyog sa iyang mga saksi nga kauban usab niya nga pasyente, ang maong Nursing Aide misulod sa ilang kwarto, isog ang tuno sa tingog ug mipahamtang ug mga sakit nga storya, “Diba wala mankay PhilHealth? Nganong gapatuga-tuga manmog kuha aning semi-private nga kwarto nga mahalon mani? Unsaon ninyo pagbayad kung ang inyong bill maabot ug Php10,000?”

(June 23, 2017 around 10+ in the morning, the said patient who just recently delivered a child was forcibly transferred by one of the Nursing Aide of NOPH new building from semi-private room to ward station for an unjust reason stating that the patient cannot afford paying the air-conditioned room. The patient added, along with her witnesses who are also patients of the said hospital, the said Nursing Aide entered the room, with aggressive toned of voice throw hurtful words against the patient, “You’re not a PhilHealth member, right? Then why did you choose to get a semi-private room which is expensive? How can you afford to pay it if your bill will cost Php10,000?”)

Tungod kay ang pasyente dili kabalo manubag ug nagkulang sa kaalam kung unsay angay niyang itubag sa maong linya sa natumbok nga Nursing Aide, samtang ang gabantay niini aduna pay importanteng gilakaw gawas sa ospital, gipugos gayod pagbalhin nila ang pasyente padulong ngadto sa ward, laing kwarto nga daghang mga pasyente, nga mas barato ang bayad sa walay igong pagpananghid sa guardian o gabantay niini nga bisan aduna pay gilakaw, unta naa man kini record nga pwedeng matawagan ang iyang phone number.

(Since the patient lacks knowledge and awareness on what to respond to the statement of identified Nursing Aide, while the patient’s watcher is still out of the hospital for an important errand, they really transferred the patient to the ward station, a cheaper room with a number of patients without the consent of the patient’s guardian/watcher, where in fact, even if the guardian is out, a contact number can be found on the hospital records during admission if the action is really necessary and needs to be done immediately.)

Nakalitan pag-ayo ang gabantay niini sa dihang pagkabalo niya. Usa ka rason nga mipili ang guardian sa maong pasyente ug semi-private nga kwarto mga 9 ka oras sa wala pa mahitabo ang pagpanghilabot sa Nursing Aide kay okay ra unta sila kung baratuhon nga kwarto apan tungod lage kuno sa kadaghan sa pasyente, ang bag-ong nanganak gihatagan lang ug teheras, katre nga piko-piko pareha sa barko. Tungod kay dili ma comportable ang pasyente kung pahigdaon sa teheras, ang guardian mismo ang mipili ug semi-private room, bahalag medyo mas taas ang kantidad sa kwarto, pero kini gihunahuna pag-ayo sa guardian nga makaya rapud nila kini pagbayad.

(The incident shocked the watcher after the info reached to her. One of the reasons why the guardian chose the semi-private room for her patient 9 hours prior to the injustice act done by the said Nursing Aide is due to the fact that while they were asked by the assigned Nurse (not the Nursing Aide) regarding on what room to choose, the Nurse told the guardian that if they choose the room in the ward station, the only available bed is a collapsible cot which is unstable and uncomfortable enough for a patient who just recently delivered a child. The guardian itself chooses the semi-private room, though it costs a bit higher, yet she is sure enough that they can afford to pay it.)

Ang pangutana:

  1. Tungod ba kay dili datu ug pamorma ang maong pasyente, daug-daugon ug e underestimate lang ang pasyente, singhagan ug kuhaan sa ilang katungod isip pasyente sa Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital (NOPH) new building?
  2. Ang pasyente wala pay 12 ka oras gikan sa pagpanganak, kini gipalakaw para lang gyud mabalhin sa laing kwarto, dili ba kini makadaot kaniya?
  3. Inaani ba gayod ang batasan isip usa ka Nursing Aide o Nurse ba nuon sa ospital nga dli atimanon ug tarong ang pasyente, nuon kini singhagan o kasab-an abi kay kasagaran nga maadmit sa NOPH mga pobre o taga bukid?

(Questions:

  1. Is it because the patient weren’t neatly dressed in wealth, employees of Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital will just mock and underestimate her, scold and remove her right as a patient?
  2. It was still less than 12 hours when the patient delivered her child, she was forcibly transferred to another room by letting her walk on the hospital aisle, can’t it stressed out the patient?
  3. Is it really the nature of the character of a Nursing Aide or Nurse in a hospital not to treat and care the patient in a nice way, instead will rebuke and criticize perhaps for the fact that most patients in NOPH are poor or came from rural areas?)

Situation #2:

3

Walay insaktong instruction ang mga ga duty nga empleyado sa maong ospital alang sa ilang mga pasyente mahitungod sa proseso unsaon pagbayad sa mga balayranan sa ospital aron makagawas ang pasyente. Tungod niini, mahitabo nga:

  1. Malangay ang pagawas sapasyente hangdtod maabtan na kini ug tingsira sa opisina, mas labaw pa kung matunong ug holiday sa sunod adlaw. Sa kalangay, makabayad na nuon ug dugang balayran ang pasyente tungod sa kahinay ug ka walay klaro nga paglihok sa mga empleyado sa NOPH.
  2. Magbalik-balik pagsaka ug kanaog ang watcher sa pasyente nga gaproseso sa mga papeles, nga diin kapoy raba gayod tuyok-tuyukan ang NOPH new buiding tungod kay wala pa kini kompletong mahuman gikan sa old building.
  3. Maghulat ug dugay ang pasyente o ang watcher sa pasyente sa pasangil nga kuno sila isip mga empleyado sa Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital busy kayo sa ilang mga trabaho. Tinuod nga ma busy ang usa ka empleyado pero dili pud siguro maayo nga pahulaton kag pila ka oras human ingnon lang ka ug “nganong karon pamaning papilla gidala diri nga sirado naman mi?”

Kining maong sitwasyon nahitabo tungod kay nagkulang ug insaktong instruction ang NOPH new building nurse station sa third floor padulong sa ilang business and finance office.

Situation #3:

4

Sa delivery room, June 22, 201 sa gabii padulong sa June 23, 2017 sa kadlawon, miingon ang mangalanakay nga pasyente sa assigned Nurse, “ma’am murag kagawsonon na gyud ang bata, pwede nakong mo utong?” Mitubag ang Nurse, “Utong diha, unsay labot nako.”

Ang naasoy sa taas usa lamang sa mga sakit nga linya gikan sa pamaba sa ubang Nurse sa NOPH batok sa ilang mga pasyente.

Ang pangutana:

  1. Kung sa mga private nga ospital sama sa SUMC o Holy Child Dumaguete, nganong ilang mga Nurse dili man inaani kasakit manulti sa ilang mga pasyente? Kini tungod ba kay ang NOPH us aka Provincial Hospital, pero dili ba mas atimanon unta ug maayo ang mga pasyente diri tungod kay kini ospital man sa gobyerno u gang sweldo sa mga empleyado niini gagikan man sa mga buhis sa katawhan nga mao rasay mahimong mga pasyente sa maong ospital? Abi kay pobre, sika-sikaon lang?

Situation #4:

Gihatagan ug advise ang pasyente nga sa dili pa mopauli, paghuman ug bayad sa tanang balayran, kinahanglan kining magpa Internal Examine (IE). Tuod mituman ang pasyente niini. Sa wala pa niadto ang pasyente, samtang aduna pay gisubay ang watcher sa pasyente sa Nurse Station, mikalit pagsagbat ang laing Nurse nga dili maoy kaistorya sa watcher, “dili man gud sa Business and Finance building magpa IE ang pasyente, adto man sa Delivery Room.” Nainsulto ang watcher nga usa usab ka professional kay kini sarcastic kaayong giistorya sa maong Nurse nga unta nakahibalo man pud ang watcher kung asa magpa IE dapat ang pasyente tungod kay dili man kini ignorante.

Samtang ang pasyente didto sa Delivery Room, gatalay ang 3 ka pasyente nga magpa IE kay mogawasay na. Mga 30 ka minute ang milabay, nangutana ang watcher kung kanus-a sila ma IE, mitubag ang Nurse nga hulat lang kay busy pa ang Doctor tungod kay daghang nanganak. Gisabot kini sa watcher. Pila napud ka minute ang milabay, hapit na us aka oras, nangutana pag-usab ang watcher sa Nurse, mitubag ang Nurse, “Hulat lnggud m okay kamo tanan gusting mauna pero busy mi kayo.” Milili ang watcher sa glass window sa Delivery Room, nakita niya nga kung tinud-anay lang silang mo serbisyo sa mga pobreng pasyente, ma IE raman dayon tong 3 nga ga talay kay dili man mismo ang Doctor ang mo IE, Nurse lang man, unya dili man usa r aka Nurse ang naa didto. Nangutana ang watcher sa lainng pasyente nga gatalay para IE ug tuod kini iyang nasayran nga 4 na diay sila ka oras gahulat didto para lang magpa IE. Basis a obserbasyon, pwede man unta nilang maplastar ug tarong ilang schedule ug assignment each Nurse per patient nga dili inaato ka dugay maghulat ang pasyente para lang sukdon ang atubangan sa pasyente, ang ka dugayon nga 4 ka oras mura man pud ug nangank usob ang pasyente aron.

Ang pangutana:

  1. Inaana ba diay mo atiman ang ospital sa obyerno para sa ilang mga pasyente, unya-unyaon?

Conclusion

Regardless of what happened, we are still thankful to one of NOPH new building Nurse in position who entertained all our concerns in the person of “Baring.” She treated us nicely unlike some of the other Nurses there. May all the other Nurses, Nursing Aides, and other employees will be like her who knew the correct ethics on how to treat their patients the best and proper way.

  • To the rest who typically underestimate, criticise, or rebuke Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital (NOPH) patients, may you seek proper training for if not, this incident will still happen over and over again which might result in not just a negative feedback against the hospital and its administration but could result in a more worse action against the employees.
  • To the admin of NOPH, a government hospital in Dumaguete City, may this serve as a lesson for you to correct the behavior of your employees as what they are serving are patients who deserve to be treated and cared the kind and proper way.
