Types of Lies!

What is a lie? A lie is to say something that one knows to be false or that one has not reasonably ascertained to be true with the intention that it be taken for the truth by oneself or someone else.

Types of lies are:

Fabrication-
A fabrication is a lie told when someone submits a statement as truth, without knowing for certain whether or not it actually is true. Although the statement may be possible or plausible, it is not based on fact. Rather, it is something made up, or it is a misrepresentation of the truth.

Lying by omission-
One lies by omission by omitting an important fact, deliberately leaving another person with a misconception. Lying by omission includes failures to correct pre-existing misconceptions.

Noble lie-
A noble lie is one which would normally cause discord if it were uncovered, but which offers some benefit to the liar and assists in an orderly society, therefore potentially beneficial to others. It is often told to maintain law, order and safety.
Bold-face lie-
A bold-faced often also referred to as bare-faced or bald-faced, although all three have slightly different meanings, lie is one which is told when it is obvious to all concerned that it is a lie.

Emergency lie-
An emergency lie is a strategic lie told when the truth may not be told because, for example, harm to a third party would result.

White lie-
A white lie would cause only relatively minor discord if it were uncovered, and typically offers some benefit to the hearer. White lies are often used to avoid offense, such as complimenting something one finds unattractive. In this case, the lie is told to avoid the harmful realistic implications of the truth. As a concept, it is largely defined by local custom and cannot be clearly separated from other lies with any authority.
Bluffing-
To bluff is to pretend to have a capability or intention which one does not actually possess.Bluffing is an act of deception which is rarely seen as immoral, because it takes place in the context of a game where this kind of deception is consented to in advance by the players.

Exaggeration-
Occurs when the most fundamental aspects of a statement are true, but only to a certain degree. It is also seen as "stretching the truth" or making something appear more powerful, meaningful, or real than it actually is.

Lying in Trade-
The seller of a product or service may advertise untrue facts about the product or service in order to gain sales, especially by competitive advantage.
Puffery-
Is an exaggerated claim typically found in advertising and publicity announcements, such as "the highest quality at the lowest price," or "always votes in the best interest of all the people," or "even a jeweler cannot tell it from a genuine diamond."

Contextual lies-
One can state part of the truth out of context, knowing that without complete information, it gives a false impression.
Misleading/Dissembling-
statement is one where there is no outright lie, but still retains the purpose of getting someone to believe in an untruth. "Dissembling" likewise implies presenting facts in a way that is literally true, but intentionally misleading.


Jocose lies-
Jocose lies are those which are meant in jest, and are usually understood as such by all present parties. Teasing and sarcasms are examples.

Lie-to-children-
often a platitude which may use euphemism, which is told to make an adult subject acceptable to children.

Perjury-
Is the act of lying or making verifiability false statements on a material matter under oath or affirmation in a court of law, or in any of various sworn statements in writing.

White Lie?

I just arrived from my night shift job and it was very interesting because one of my worker was caught lying to everyone. She was supposed to work with us for the night shift but then she called in around 4 o'clock in the afternoon telling our boss that she can't come to work because her sister was in the hospital due to some allergic reaction. Her reason was that she needs to watch her sister's children while her sister will be confine in the hospital.

My boss was kind of upset but he was considerate enough to tell her not to come because of the family emergency. Guess what happened? One of my co-worker's cousins who also work for us told her cousin Mr. C that Miss Y is with them and they are at the carnival.

Everyone was pissed because we have to cover her shift and we have to do double work because we don't have enough people to work for the evening shift. When our big boss found out that she lied to him then he was really upset and will give Miss Y a two week suspension from work.

Thunder and Lightning

We are experiencing heavy rains at this moment. We also have strays of thunderstorm and lightning. I bet my husband's step mother is very happy because it rains. She likes it when it rains because she doesn't have to water her plants.

Hopefully, the rain will stop before my husband arrives from work. We are planning to go watch a movie tonight at the movie theater. I actually need to get ready but I am hook up on the computer. I am excited to watch the "Night at the Museum" Battle of the Smithsonian" with Ben Stiller.

Sense of Self- Worth

There are times that we might feel that we are worthless but always remember that we are all children of God and we are all worthy in His sight. When you are unhappy or depress there are things that will help you change your views. We can look beyond ourselves by:

1. Shifting your attention to others- Instead of dwelling on your weaknesses, look for the good in those around you. Point out those good things to them.

2. Listen to others- Listen to understand, not just so you can prepare a response.

3. Remember: the people around you are probably just as insecure as you are; they are all painfully aware of their weaknesses. So don’t, for a second, think that yours are necessarily worse than anyone else.

This is an article I read from one of my favorite church magazine the" Liahona".

Mosquito Free Summer

One of the many things I love about summer is that we can do cook-outs; we can just sit around or go swimming in the pool and much more. I love to invite my family and friends to visit us in the apartment and have some fun.

There is only one thing that can ruin our summer fun at that is the mosquitoes. I really hate mosquitoes because they are bringing diseases that will make you sick. A mosquito carries the West Nile Virus, Malaria and they can give you Dengue Fever. The good news is that, you can now put mosquito traps while you are outside. When you put the mosquito traps correctly outside your house, the mosquitoes will be drawn to the mosquito traps instead of biting you.

Look Slim With Your Summer Clothes

Start wearing colorful prints in the summer or you can choose knits with stretch so they smooth over curves instead of clinging them.

1. Look leaner and taller in mid-rise pants with slightly flared leg.

2. Slim down your face with a necklace that ends right below your chest, instead of a choker, to give you a longer neckline.

3. Slip on tank even if you have large chest. Just look for one with a built in bra.

4. Cinch your waist in a wrap top tied at the smallest part of your torso.

5. Give your height a boost by wearing sandals that have a slight heels and that match the color of your pants.

Heartburn

Heartburn is a burning sensation that’s usually located behind the breastbone. The pain often rises in your chest and may radiate to your neck or throat. When food or liquid enters your stomach, a band of muscle at the end of your esophagus (called the lower esophageal sphincter or LES) closes off the esophagus. If this muscle fails to close tightly enough, stomach contents can back up (reflux) into the esophagus. This partially digested material is usually acidic and can irritate the esophagus, causing heartburn and other symptoms.

Avoiding Heartburn by:

1. Avoiding Alcohol
2. Avoiding caffeine carbonated beverages
3. Avoiding chocolates
4. Avoiding citrus fruits and juices
5. Avoiding tomatoes and tomato juice
6. Avoiding spicy or fatty acids
7. Avoiding spearmint or peppermint

Do You Shop at The Dollar Store?

Things You Should Buy at the Dollar Store are:

1. Shampoo- The good news about shampoos and conditioners is that there is no difference in quality between the cheap ones and pricier versions.

2. Spices-The article mentioned that a jar of paprika costs almost $4.50 at the supermarket, but at a dollar store, you could get the same amount of paprika for only 99 cents – it was just a different brand. If you’re worried about buying non-name-brand spices, know this: ALL single-ingredient items "must" follow strict government regulations.

Things You Should Not Buy at the Dollar Store:

1.
Batteries- Many dollar-store batteries are the carbon-zinc variety, which drain more quickly and are more sensitive to heat and cold than traditional alkaline batteries.

2.
Vinyl lunchboxes and jewelry- They’ve been recalled from dollar stores as dangerous sources of lead. Even though there are new regulations in place, it’s best to be cautious and buy them elsewhere.

3. Electrical products-They may not be wired to handle the current they receive. Some also have shoddy insulation around the wiring, which can pose a fire risk.

4. Toothpaste- In 2007, the Food and Drug Administration warned consumers that many brands of toothpaste found at dollar stores carried a poisonous chemical found in antifreeze! Although recalls were issued, some of these products could still be on shelves. So, it's probably best to steer clear.

This is an article I read at MSN Money.

When To Throw Out Your Makeup



Be careful! Most beauty products don't have an expiration date, but they do go bad. Periodically purge your medicine cabinet, your bag or wherever else you have makeup tucked away. Here's when to can it:

Mascara

Can it after 3-6 months

It's especially important to change mascara often (even if you have some left). Air can push bacteria into the tube and cause an eye infection.

Eyeliner

Can it after 6 months

Even if you sharpen your eyeliner every week to keep it fresh, bacteria can still grow around the tip. You'll know it's there when the pencil starts to crumble as you're sharpening it.

Foundation

Can it after 6 months

Water-based formulas last a few weeks longer than oil-based ones.

Eye Shadow

Can it after 9-12 months

Old shadows get chalky and difficult to apply.

Blush

Can it after 1-2 years

If your blush breaks, throw it out right away -- and don't salvage the chunks -- they'll be difficult to blend and will look caked on.

Lip Color

Can it after 2 years

Replace lipsticks earlier if you notice oil beads on the side or the color looks different when you apply.

Facts About Hernia

I was talking to my co-worker today and she was telling me that her baby who is only 9 months old have hernia. The baby have to undergo a surgery to remove and repair the location of the hernia. I feel really bad because of the pain that the baby will experience during and after the surgery. So I decided to research about Hernia and this what I found out.

Hernia- is the protrusion of organs, such as intestines, through a weakened section of the abdominal wall. If left untreated, the split in the muscle widens and greater amounts of tissue or organs are pushed through the opening, forming a sac. This visible lump or bulge is one of the key characteristics of a hernia.

Symptoms
The symptoms of a hernia can vary depending on the location and severity, but may include:
  • A visible lump or a swollen area
  • A heavy or uncomfortable feeling in the gut, particularly when bending over
  • Pain or aching, particularly on exertion (such as lifting or carrying heavy objects)
  • Digestive upsets, such as constipation
  • The lump disappears when the person is lying down
  • The lump enlarges upon coughing, straining or standing up.
Different types of hernias include:
  • Inguinal – occurring in the groin. This is the most common form, accounting for more than nine out of 10 hernias. A loop of intestine pushes against the small ring of muscle in the groin, eventually splitting the muscle fibres apart. Inguinal hernias affect more men than women and are particularly common in middle age.
  • Femoral – occurring high on the thigh, where the leg joins the body. Similar to the events that cause an inguinal hernia, intestines force their way through the weak muscle ring at the femoral canal until they protrude. This herniated section of bowel is at risk of strangulation, which is a serious complication requiring urgent medical attention. Femoral hernias are more common in women.
  • Umbilical – a portion of the gut pushes through a muscular weakness near the navel, or belly button. This type of hernia is more common in newborns. Overweight women, or those who have had several pregnancies, are also at increased risk.
  • Incisional – after abdominal surgery, the site of repair will always be structurally weaker. Sometimes, the intestines can push through the closed incision, causing a hernia.

Greatest Gift of All

Mother's Day had passed but you can still give the most wonderful and unique gift you could possibly give to all the mothers out there or all of the mothers to be. Did you know that Cryo-Cell U-Cord has been helping thousands of families across the globe by preserving their newborn baby's umbilical cord blood since 1992? It has been proven that newborn baby's umbilical cord can be used to prevent many kind of diseases. Cryo-Cell Blood Banking is also a pioneer in research for the sole purpose of preserving newborn baby's umbilical cord.


It has been proven that a newborn baby's umbilical cord can cure up to 75 kinds of diseases. Likewise, the newborn baby's umbilical cord has been used in up to 10, 000 transplants across the continent.

Check Greg Pritchard of Britain's Got Talent

I was shock after I hear Greg Pritchard singing Nessum Dorma at Britain's Got Talent. He has the voice of a male soprano. He really possessed a very high pitch tone when he sang. I was stunned because I wasn't expecting that his voice will be like that. His talent is very surreal I could not even believe it until now. Simon always says that they are looking for the most unique talent across the globe I bet this is one of the many craziest talents they ever had.

Furniture Design



I always love rustic furniture because it reminds me of childhood memories in the Philippines. I remember that most of our furniture before and even until now is made of wood. All rustic furniture has its own unique design which is carefully carved to achieve that amazing look. One of my favorite rustic furniture is a 6 foot living room sofa. I attach a picture above so you will see the detailed design and craftsmanship. When you click the link above you will able to choose any fabric that matches your taste. Remember each design is individually hand crafted. You can choose many of the upholstery design that they offer.

Man Eater Fish




I was watching the show River Monster at Discovery Channel last night and I was quite disturbed by the picture they show of a Catfish called "Piraiba" who ate a full- grown fisherman. Piraiba is the largest catfish in the Amazon River and known to be a man eater. The maximum weight of a Piraiba can reached up to 500 pounds and its length is up to 9 and 1/2 feet. They are known for biting off more than it can actually chew or swallow.

You can see the host of River Monster Jeremy Wade holding a fresh caught Piraiba of the Amazon River.

Hawaii Here We Come

Picture_2


My husband's whole family is inviting us to join them for their upcoming vacation in Hawaii this summer. I am very thrilled because I have never been to Hawaii but my hubby's family has been there a couple of times. When I think about Hawaii I always imagine the white sandy beaches where you can walk bare footed, the beautiful weather, the exotic food and many more.

Ka'anapali Beach Resort is part of the Maui Resort in the beautiful state of Hawaii. Ka' anapali Beach Resort hotel is known for its world class amenities. After taking a virtual tour on their website I am very excited to tell and recommend to my husband's family to take our vacation at Ka'anapali Beach Resort in the island of Maui in Hawaii. I know that we will have the most breathtaking experience if we spend our vacation in Ka'anapali Beach resort. There first class amenities include two restaurants where you can eat the many delicious food at a reasonable price and you can also pamper yourself by going to the Spa Salon. I would like to try to do snorkeling and surfing while in Hawaii.

You can also have your perfect Maui Weddings in the beautiful island of Maui and have your dream wedding honeymoon at Ka'anapali Beach Resort. Maybe in the future I will have my wedding vows renew in these romantic island of Maui.

Reducing Clutter In Your Home

1. The first rule is actually a reality check-..If you can't find what you need within 5 minutes, no matter what you think, yes, your house is cluttered.

2. Get everyone in your family on the declutter, organization bandwagon. Have everybody in the house pick 5 personal items that can be thrown away or given to charity.

3. If the counter top or table surface isn't visible, take action ASAP.

4. Establish a specific place for the things you use every day especially in the entryway or kitchen--hooks for keys, a basket for the mail, hooks for coats, a basket for shoes left by the door.

5. Always give the living room a quick pickup before bedtime. Be relentless in tossing out papers, newspapers, magazines, and junk mail.

6. The sixth rule for reducing clutter: Every time you bring something new into the house, try to make sure something old goes out.

7. And the final rule: If you aren't using it--or haven't used it in a year, get rid of it.

This is a friendly reminder from DJ Tesh of KSII-FM 93.1 FM El Paso, Texas

What is ATM Skimming?

ATM's - a skimmer is basically a card reader but it’s hard-to-spot. Then, as you swipe your card, the skimmer steals your information off your card’s magnetic strip. Crooks can also use hidden cameras to record victims typing in their PIN codes. Or place devices on top of the keypad that transmit a person’s PIN to a nearby laptop. Obviously, once a crook has this information, they can drain your bank account.

This are the following tips to protect your ATM card:

1. Be aware of your surroundings- Be extra careful of machines in dark areas or in places that don’t look well guarded and monitored.

2. Cover your hand as you type in your PIN- This will make it harder for a hidden camera to record your PIN number.

3. Be careful when you type in your PIN code- If it’s difficult to punch the keys or you feel resistance, it could mean a device was placed on top of the ATM’s keypad.

4. Pay attention to the FRONT of machines- If it looks different from others in the area, use a different machine. Also, be careful if the ATM has sticky residue on it – this could be a sign there’s a device attached to it.

Run or Walk For a Cause

Being healthy is one of the many important things you can do to have a longer life. I have a lot of challenges maintaining a healthy and fit body. I haven't been running for awhile now due to the fact that I am busy with work and other things. One of my weaknesses is that I really love junk food. It is very hard to resist the urge to eat especially if the food looks tasty and delicious. I always tend to over eat when I am hungry and when I don't eat on time. I also do not like to go to the gym to exercise or walk very far distances.

But I am ready to make changes in my health lifestyle. My husband and I agreed to get back in shape again to prevent health issues in the future. BeeWell Miles is a program where you can ask questions to a live coach on what approach you wish to undergo in order to live a healthy life. You can also sign in at Bee Well Miles website and make an account in order to keep track of how many miles you walk or run every day and how many calories you intake each time you eat. It is very important for all members to log in at Bee Well Miles because every mile you walk or run is worth 15 cents to help support the Breast Cancer Network of Strength.

I am excited to share this with my family and friends because my mother-in-law died of cancer almost four years ago. You will also be eligible to win one of 15, 000 prizes every time you logged in your miles or game codes at Bee Well Miles website.

I Went Swimming Yesterday

Yesterday we went to the Parks and Recreation Center here in El Paso, Texas. We went there to go swimming since the swimming pool here in our apartment is still close. My husband and I have a great time swimming together; it was very nice because it is an indoor pool and I don't have to worry about getting sunburn. The entrance was only $2 per person so it wasn't too bad. We stay there for an hour and after that we came home, took a shower and went to a Mexican Grill Restaurant. Although both of us are busy with work and school but we make sure that we still have time for each other.

Goodbye Page Rank

I was very surprise today after I found out that I lost my page rank. I've been so busy lately that I never took time to visit other blog site that much. I drop entre cards but not as much as I use to do before. The funny thing is that when I check my page rank on the Google checker it says that I still have PR 2; but when I go to triple P it says that I have zero PR. Anyways, I guess I have to be back in the game again. Hopefully, I'll be able to have it again.
