A Guide in Traveling to Sagada A Guide in Traveling to Sagada I always wanted to go to Baguio from primary school, but my mother would not let me go because of the historic earthquake that happened there when I was in my mother's womb. The quake struck when my mother was traveling back to Manila from Baguio. And now I’m 26, I haven’t been there yet. Longing for a cool place in the mountains, my friend invited me on an adventure. Not in Baguio rather, in Sagada. One of the coldest places in the country. A place of peace and relaxation. It’s like a place of escape from the city and reality. And from the famous movie "That Thing Called Tadhana," it's a place where broken hearts go. Traveling to Sagada is good for family, friends, a couple, or even a soloist. Although o...

Is the Craft Beer Rocket Ride Fizzling Out? Is the Craft Beer Rocket Ride Fizzling Out? Craft beer is still growing as part of the total beer industry. Like wineries, there is a craft beer brewery in all 50 states. As a class in the alcoholic beverages industry, craft-making has only been around for four decades; however, there is no specific incident to characterize the official origin of the industry. In 1859, Anchor Brewing Company of San Francisco started a brewing operation. Unfortunately, until 1965 the company had a bad history of financial failures in making good beer. However, it has had a stellar record of success since 1965 and is now recognized as America's first craft beer brewer. Is the Craft Beer Rocket Ride Fizzling Out? Despite the growth of the breweri...

If Certain Things Did Not Restrain Me If Certain Things Did Not Restrain Me - 'Ewepu-Ihe-Anaso' I Would Have: A Short Story At the end of his fifteen -minute session, JD emerged from the thick snow forest behind the two -story family home. It was past midnight, and the moon was as bright as the rest of the moon. Looking around, JD wondered why he had so many thoughts in his head.

Clear the Air Please! Clear the Air, Please! A new public health hazard is going on in malls, live vendor shows, markets, workplaces, and in a variety of public places where children are present. What is this practice? Persons encouraged by their up-lines to spew fragrance particulates into the air infiltrating those in close proximity, without their permission. I have asked those partaking in fragrance spewing, not to spew fragrances through a plugged-in device. I asked them to keep a lid on their products. They become defensive and state that they are spewing it anyway. I have noticed that many craft shows and flea markets are now prohibiting this practice due to complaints. Clear the Air, Please! My last asthma medicine cost sixty-one dollars for an emergency inha...

For a graduate student who had money problems, How to Make Wine was a plan for a continuous flow of cheap nectar of the gods. How difficult can it be? After all, a Neolithic man-made wine without the help of a recipe from an antiquarian. With a little study and training, I could achieve the same results as the illiterate ancient cave dwellers. I read the book twice. The "C" in high school chemistry reinforced the need for a careful understanding of the process. At the end of the second reading, I was convinced that this winemaking matter was fading compared to understanding Avogadro's number, the method for measuring the number of molecules in gases.
