Responsible and ethical journalism. This is something that is often talked about within the industries of social and traditional media. It simply means that as a journalist – whether online, on air, or on print – there is always a responsibility and a duty to make sure that whatever information is being let out in public is factual and true. This holds true regardless if you are writing about current events or simply stating a personal opinion.
In an ideal world, bloggers would strictly abide by this important tenet – not only because one cares for his/her integrity but also because it is the right thing to do. Readers deserve accurate reporting.
Unfortunately, we don’t live in an ideal world. Far from it, sad to say. And as much as most of us who own and maintain blogs strive hard to uplift the image and integrity of the blogging community, there remains a significant number of irresponsible jerks who write with reckless abandon and with no sense of responsibility – all for the sake of being controversial and coming out with the juiciest news first.
Sleeplessness or lack of sleep. Whichever of these two keeps you company at night, the negative effects to one’s body are the same such as advanced ageing and a weak immune system.
In my line of work, whether blogging until the wee hours of the morning, staying up from morning till next morning for a taping of a TV series episode, or traveling locally or out of the country with a tight itinerary, lack of sleep is a common (and very frequent) thing.
And as much as regular exercise and having an active lifestyle is important, it is critical to have enough sleep as well.
As much as I’d like to get ample rest in order to recover from a stressful and hectic day, sometimes that just isn’t possible. I’m sure a lot of you can relate – especially those who work late nights employed at call centers or BPOs. Some of you have probably even resorted to snacking on junk food and coffee, or worse, smoking, during the very late hours just to stay awake and alert.
Here’s the thing… I found out that the body’s immune system undergoes a natural cycle of rest and repair from 10pm-3am. This corresponds to the natural sleeping hours of the day. However, the nature of my work and probably yours, too, does not allow for much rest during these hours.
It doesn’t take a genius to know that a weak immune system easily leads to sickness.
Who says that escaping the hustle and bustle of daily life should always include an out of town getaway? There are so many options and ways to relax and destress even without leaving the metro.
One great place to spend that much needed escape is at the brand spankin’ new Golden Phoenix Hotel Manila.
Although Golden Phoenix Hotel Manila is a new establishment located just a stone’s throw away from the SM Mall of Asia, they aren’t really new players in the hospitality business. Their very own Boracay branch has been in business for a good while now.
Recently, I visited a fairly well known restaurant located right smack in the heart of Rockwell, Makati, known for its delicious and impressive Negrense cuisine – “Kafe Batwan”.
This cool and very homey establishment is owned by celebrity chef and fellow kababayan JP Anglo.
The reason for visiting wasn’t mainly because I wanted to try out Chef JP Anglo’s dishes (although I did get to sample a good number of ‘em during that day). I was there to witness Chef JP being launched as the newest Globe Platinum ambassador.
Health & Fitness
I’m a sucker for food. I love eating although it doesn’t quite show now because of the drastic diet and fitness regimen that I had to go through 2 years ago wherein I lost 50lbs in roughly 4 months (185lbs. down to 135lbs.) It takes a substantial amount of effort to stay fit. In fact, […]
What is great food exactly? It’s a pretty tough question if you really think about it. Of course, it has to taste great, no doubt. But great food is also somewhat relative. For example… ampalaya dishes aren’t appealing to me at all, but my wife and my father adores food cooked with this vegetable. So, […]
I’d like to invite everyone to attend Social Media Weekend 2013 this Saturday (June 29) at the Glorietta Activity Center, Makati City. The theme for this year is “Let’s move #fwdPH”. Just like Social Media Day 2012, this year’s event will be packed with activities and fun. “Let’s move #fwdPH” means being a good citizen […]
Last May 28, 2013, the first gathering ever for members of Globe Community was held at SKYE Lounge at Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. The meetup was the perfect opportunity for people in Globe Community to actually meet other members in person and to bond with one another.
