CYBERSEX

Many find justifications for cybersex like; it can satisfy some sexual
desires without the risk of a sexually transmitted disease (STD) or
pregnancy, and it allows real-life partners who are physically separated to
continue to be sexually intimate. However, it is used by large sites on
making money by selling under-age females from poor countries. Sadly, this
issue has not yet been resolved up until now despite the police raids and
online security. Foreign sites have been funding some of the Filipinos so they
can continue to find and hire young girls who would willingly go naked in
exchange for money, some for just food.
Cyber-sex will also always be associated with privacy concerns. Many record
the whole conversation including the person doing sexual acts without their
concern and used to threaten them and ask for money. Also, social
networking accounts can be hacked and the whole conversation can be read
by other people. I do not recommend engaging in sexual acts online.

PSYCHOLOGY ACROSS GENERATION
The photo above shows the summary of evolution that occurred among
different generations. This explains why parents and elders must not really
compare themselves to young people of today. They have lived in a culture
and way of life different from what we have now. Back then, distractions are
very minimal but now, they are everywhere. Not a single Millenial or iGen
can be seen with no smartphone on hand. We are the ones going crazy for
likes, followers, selfies, snapchats, filters, everything. Also, every generation
develops new slang, but with the development of technology, understanding
gaps have widened between the older and younger generations. "The term
'communication skills,' for example, might mean formal writing and
speaking abilities to an older worker. But it might mean e-mail and instant-
messenger savvy to a twenty something." People often have private
conversations in secret in a crowded room in todays age due to the
advances of mobile phones and text messaging. Among texters a form of
slang or texting lingo has developed, often keeping those not as tech savvy
out of the loop. Children increasingly rely on personal technological devices
like cell phones to define themselves and create social circles apart from
their families, changing the way they communicate with their parents. Cell
phones, instant messaging, e-mail and the like have encouraged younger
users to create their own inventive, quirky and very private written
language. That has given them the opportunity to essentially hide in plain
sight. They are more connected than ever, but also far more independent.

Good thing is that Baby Boomers and Gen-x are capable of adopting
todays trend. Many elders also own Facebook Accounts and post their
selfies online. The only thing that is permanent in this world is change. Let
us admit it. The key is to help ourselves adapt to it.

EARLY ONSET OF ALZHEIMERS DISEASE


Many people are uncomfortable talking about
Alzheimer's disease and dementia. Even
doctors sometimes are reluctant to discuss this
situation. That is understandable, but not talking
about the illness can make the person with
Alzheimer's feel even more isolated, sad and
frustrated. Caregivers need to talk with
others about what they are going through,
too. Whether reaching out to friends and family or
through a support group.
An early diagnosis of early stage Alzheimers disease
doesnt just affect those with the disease; it affects everyone who loves and
cares about them. The role of a care partner is not limited to spouses,
partners or close family members. Care partners may include "families of
choice" such as friends, neighbors or long-distance relatives.
Caring for someone with Alzheimer's could be the toughest job someone
may ever have. It's important that they stay physically and emotionally
healthy when they are providing care.
Facing stigma is often a primary concern of people living with Alzheimer's
and their care partners. Those with the disease report being misunderstood
because of the myths and misconceptions others have about the disease.
Stigma is the use of negative labels to identify a person with a disability or
illness. Stigma around Alzheimer's disease exists, in part, due to the lack of
public awareness and understanding of the disease, preventing people from
seeking medical treatment when symptoms are present, receiving an early
diagnosis or any diagnosis at all, benefiting from available treatments, and
developing a support system.
Stigma and stereotypes are a significant obstacle to well-being and quality
of life for those with dementia and their families.

Persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD) is a newly


recognized condition, where the sufferer complains of
long periods of genital arousal that are not associated
with sexual desire.
PGAD sufferers experience intrusive, unsolicited and
spontaneous genital arousal that can be unrelenting.
This arousal can persist for hours, days or even
longer.
This can be highly distressing for a woman and despite
attempts to relieve it with sexual activity or orgasm,
this often doesn't help or can worsen the symptoms.
Sufferers of PGAD can feel constantly on the brink of
an orgasm. One thing they all share is pain, and
distress.
I cannot believe the fact that this kind of disorder is
present to some people. I feel sad for them, especially during the documentary video
was being played. Their faces actually reflect their agony for having such disorder. I
think it will be a good idea if people with this kind of disorder will have a support group
or self-help group. People with PGAD need to have someone who understands them and
these persons may also think of coping strategies that may help them.

WHO IS MORE CREATIVE? INTROVERT,
EXTROVERT, OR AMBIVERT?

Introverts tend to recharge by spending time alone. They lose energy


from being around people for long periods of time, particularly large
crowds.
Extroverts, on the other hand, gain energy from other people. Extroverts
actually find their energy is sapped when they spend too much time
alone. They recharge by being social.
Since introverts and extroverts are the extremes of the scale, the rest of
us fall somewhere in the middle. Many of us lean one way or the other,
but there are some who are quite balanced between the two tendencies.
These people are called ambiverts.
I am an ambivert, the last time I took a personality test, I am a 53%
introvert and 47% extrovert.
Ambiverts like me exhibit both extroverted and introverted tendencies.
This means that we generally enjoy being around people, but after a
long time this will start to drain us. Similarly, we enjoy solitude and
quiet, but not for too long. We recharge our energy levels with a mixture
of social interaction and alone time.
According to researcher Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi: "If there is one word
that makes creative people different from others, it is the word
complexity. Instead of being an individual, they are a multitude."
Creative people are both introverted and extroverted, but at different
times. They need and use the companion of other people to build better
ideas, but they also use solitude to let ideas incubate, and the use
triggering activities (even dangerous ones) to force combination of
those incubated ideas.

TEENAGE PREGNANCY
This can cause a lot of endless
problems in the life of the teen and
the newborn child. There are a lot of
things that can cause an unplanned
teen pregnancy, such as teens
experimenting with sexual encounters
at a young age. Another major cause is
the lack of guidance due to guardians
that are blind or do not want to
believe in such activities. These causes
can have devastating effects on the
teen and the newborn in the
household. Some effects of early
pregnancy will include an unexpected
rise of responsibility for the teen and
can cause many health concerns for
both teen and newborn child.
I think teen pregnancy is getting out of
hand. Kids are having sex way too
young, they are not even ready to raise a child. I am tired of seeing
grandmothers raising their children's children. Also, the media needs to
stop making shows glorifying teen pregnancy because this makes
children feel these type of things are okay.
If you are mentally matured, truly wants to become a parent for a
serious reason and understands the responsibilities and have assessed
the financial and social well-being of you and your partner, by all means
go for the gold. But if you are not in the above, don't have a child.
TEENAGERS ARE SUPPOSED TO BE CHANGING THE WORLD, NOT
CHANGING DIAPERS.
Sex education can reach teenagers through many different ways, one of
which is through schools. The government can make it compulsory for
school students to undergo at least a certain number of hours of sex
education. Instead of focusing on the dangers and consequences of
teenage pregnancy, schools can also educate teenagers on the
advantages of not having a baby when they are unprepared so that
students may be able to weigh out the pros and the cons. This can be
enforced by getting students to attend service learning trips and having
them be exposed to the real world of teenage pregnancy.
Another way that teenagers can be educated about sex is through
their parents but in order for this to work, there must be a strong
relationship between the child and the parent. Also with a strong
relationship, parents can have more influence in their childs sex
decisions and may be able to direct their decisions in the right way. So in
other words, having a good parent-child relationship can help to
decrease the affected population.

PRESIDENCY OF DONALD TRUMPS IMPACT


ON PH
If Trump is elected president, Philippine tourists may be barred from
entering the US even for those with US relatives who are diehard
Republicans who voted for Trump. Filipinos dont even have to be Muslim
to be barred from entry as long as the Philippines is deemed a country
compromised by terrorism.
As Trump would say, Its their fault, theyve allowed (Muslims) over the
years to come into their territory. Of course, Muslims have lived in the
Philippines since before the Spaniards came. In fact, Manila was a
Muslim settlement under Rajah Soliman (Suleyman) when the Spaniards
invaded it in 1565.
The Philippines faces risks because of possible immigration restrictions.
The U.S. is host to 35 percent of the total number of Filipinos working
abroad, and Nomura estimates they account for about 31 percent of
total worker remittances, a key source of foreign inflows for the local
economy.
Trump has vowed to deport an estimated 11.3 million illegal
immigrants in the US. Many believe the actual number to be much
higher, at least 15 million. Although the emphasis in the media has
focused mostly on Latinos who crossed the border from Mexico, the list
includes probably 500,000 Filipinos, those affectionately called TNTs
(tago nang tago always hiding).
