HERSTORY


Origin of OCTOBER


Middle English Octobre, from Old English & Anglo-French; Old English October,
from Latin, 8th month of the early Roman calendar, from octo; Anglo-French,
from Latin October, First Known Use: before 12th century.

October is the tenth month of the year in the Julian and Gregorian Calendars and one of seven months with a length of 31 days. The eighth month in the old Roman calendar, October retained its name (from the Greek "οκτώ" meaning "eight") after January and February were inserted into the calendar that had originally been created by the Romans.
It is commonly associated with the season of autumn in the Northern hemisphere and spring in the Southern hemisphere, where it is the seasonal equivalent to April in the Northern hemisphere and vice versa. In the Western world, October is also commonly associated with Hallowe'en (All Hallows Eve), which initiates the season of Allhallowtide.

In our language we use Oktobre to refer to October. When this month comes, I remember that All Soul's day and All Saint's day is soon to arrive. It is celebrated in November 1 and 2, respectively, the so called trick or treat day ~ The Halloween. On the evening of last day of October, It has been our custom to go to the Cemetery where our loved ones were buried and it is like a family reunion at the same time because everyone join the vigil. Prayers are made for the eternal rest of the soul of our dearly departed ones then we talk about the memories and happy moments spent with the loved ones. We bring foods and tents. It has always been our experience that we get a sudden rain in the evening of November 1st no matter how the sun was so bright during the day. The tents did server a good purpose.

Some of the Important Days of October

World Animal Day – October 4
International World Teachers' day – October 5
Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day - October 15
World Food Day – October 16
Spirit Day – October 20
Hallowe'en (All Hallows Eve) – October 31

If someone is heavily into ego-gratification, or invested in blaming, punishing or misunderstanding you, there is little you can do at the conscious level to change their mind. Instead, speak to their soul in the light of love and forgiveness. Release the situation and move on. Those who are deeply entrenched in the ego and feeding off the short-lived power of punishing may continue to milk this past situation but when you disable it by moving on, their power fades.

Be Gentle, Loving and Forgiving of Yourself and Others

Another New Specie???

Watch as a Monster leech swallows giant worm Click here


WATCH: Worm-eating leech feeds in world-first footage
BEC CREW
MONDAY, 29 SEPTEMBER 2014
For the first time, the feeding activity of one of the world's biggest leeches has been caught on film, and it's just as disgusting as you might expect.
The species is not yet known to science but it's one of the biggest, reddest leeches in the world . Spotted recently in the forest of Mount Kinabalu, the biggest mountain in Borneo, it's been granted the rather apt nickname, the Giant Red Leech. Here it is, filmed for the first time by a BBC film crew, hoovering down a worm for the new documentary called Wonders of the Monsoon.
The leech is a whopping 30 centimetres long, but experts suggest the species probably grows even larger than that. Because of its huge size, the leech bypasses the blood-sucking feeding behaviour of its smaller relatives and simply swallows its prey whole - seen here sucking down a worm that's almost 80 centimetres long.
The leech seeks out its worm prey by picking up on its scent and figuring out which end to start chowing down on. "It was either searching for an end to grab, or was working out whether it was too big to eat, documentary director Paul Williams told Sarah Knapton at The Telegraph. "When it found an end, it started to suck. It was incredible. The result is that we could confirm the predatory behaviour of a rarely-seen and unidentified species for the first time.

Hi YOR, One More Post!
A friend taught me a long time ago that the yellow rose was a symbol for friendship.

So here is to all of my good blogger friends! Happy Last Day of September!





Still not the rose show - a rose that I found in a beautiful streetside garden this am.

The lava has gone up as high as that of a four story building and anytime soon this one is going to have a big one.

There are comments in facebook about this photo. They said they could see something that looks like a face of an old man with a long beard looking up.

at first I could not see it but when i looked at it by tilting my head to the right, I saw the shape. some of us Filipinos are superstitious they believe there is an entity watching the volcano and every volcano has a legend. What do you think?

Journey to the lovely beauty ~ Venus Goddess of Love

I will look down on you
You can look up to me
I will not be waving
For you are the reason I am leaving

You can shout and yell
But I have nothing to tell

Nobody might have loved me here
I will be full of love up there
For the Goddess of love
Has so much love to give

Have you forgotten I exist?
Go on forget about me still
For upon the day you remember
You will wonder if I am still up here

The fool on the hill knows
You are playing around
Turning round and round
But this fool sees the sun
Shining down with a guiding ray
Like a beacon light
Showing the way
To the one

One greatest love
Shining down
Illuminating on everyone
Yet nobody knows the exit
But the fool on the hill
Turning round and round

Light shining bright
Hugged this fool all night
While in deep slumber
This fool walked in the light

Will everyone remember
A fool long time forgotten
Will someone notice
As the fool ceased to exist

Venus
Is all that I have
Nobody would understand
What is at hand

But the Goddess of love
Has lots of love to give
With her by the side
This fool will live
This fool will survive
(itea Sept. 22, 2014)

Quoting 50. BriarCraft:

So good to hear that you are fine, but the water went into your sister's house. I hope nothing was ruined and that it will be okay once things dry out. Also, I hope that your house in the mountains is okay. From what you say, it appears that the water drained away quickly. If so, that is good and people can get on with the business of putting their lives back together.

Hi BC,
My sister's house have everything in elevation including the refrigerator . the water than went in was not deep but it did cause them to wear boots inside their house.
I think Mother earth had to sneeze the garbage that people throw everywhere. It is a shame really that when it was flooding all we see are debris and garbage. With the population soaring high, each has their own garbage each day, there is not just enough space to put these garbage or how ever they are to be dealt with and the landfill getting full and no other landfill to use. I think this is also a problem of other heavily populated country as well. It feels so sad for those who see what others does not see. So sad how the earth is choking and heavily laden and then something like this happens and it feels like it is better that some die than everyone dies.
I miss those times where we see greens and we see clear rain water rushing down from small canals to the river. I used to watch leaves float on a clear rain water . Today we see muddy water and garbage rushing down. Also waterways have been blocked by constructing houses so the water has no where to run but like a blind mice running everywhere . I hope the people would wake up and change their ways as they have seen what has happened. makes me sad . T_T

Our brains can make decisions while we're sleeping
SCIENCEALERT STAFf - FRIDAY, 19 SEPTEMBER 2014

Your brain doesnt shut down when you go to sleep, in fact, a recent study has shown that it remains quietly active, and can process information to help you make decisions, just like when you're awake

A new study led by senior research scientist Sid Kouider and PhD student Thomas Andrillon at the Ecole Normale Suprieure de Paris in France has investigated how active our brains are when were asleep, and the results could have implications for the Holy Grail of humanity's quest to become ever-smarter - learning in our sleep.

Previous studies have shown that rather than switching off from our environment when we sleep, our brains keep one eye open, so they can catch important information that's relevent to us. This means were more likely to wake up when we hear someone say our names, or when our alarms go off in the morning, than to the less-pressing sounds of an ally cat scratching around the bins outside, cars driving past, or the periodic chime of a cuckoo clock.

Kouider and Andrillon wanted to take this finding a step further and found that complex stimuli from our environment can not only be processed by our brains when we sleep, but can actually be used to make decisions. It's just like what's going on in your brain when you're driving your car home every day - you have to process so much information all at once and very quickly in order to safely operate your vehicle, but youre so used to it, you barely even notice it happening. The same concept appears to apply to our decision-making processes when we're asleep.

Of course, the parts in our brain associated with paying attention to and following instructions are shut down when we sleep, so we cant start performing a new task, but what Kouider and Andrillon wanted to find out is if a task was implemented right before sleep, would the brain continue working on it even after the participant dozed off?

They explained their experiment at the Conversation:

"To do this, we carried out experiments in which we got participants to categorise spoken words that were separated into two categories: words that referred to animals or objects, for example cat or Chat in a first experiment; then real words like Chammer versus pseudo-words (words that can be pronounced but are found nowhere in the dictionary) like fabu in a second one.

Participants were asked to indicate the category of the word that they heard by pressing a left or right button. Once the task became more automatic, we asked them to continue to respond to the words but they were also allowed to fall asleep. Since they were lying down in a dark room, most of them fell asleep while words were being played.

At the same time we monitored their state of vigilance thanks to EEG electrodes placed on their head. Once they were asleep, and without disturbing the flow of words they were hearing, we gave our participants new items from the same categories. The idea here was to force them to extract the meaning of the word (in the first experiment) or to check whether a word was part of the lexicon (in the second experiment) in order to be able to respond.

Once they dozed off, the participants stopped pressing the buttons. But when the researchers looked at their brain activity, they found that the participants were still planning to press a button, and had a preference for either the right or left side, depending on the words that were being played to them. This means that even when they were sleeping, the participants brains continued to prepare a response for when they were to resume the task the next day.

When the participants woke up the next day, they didn't remember anything about the words they responded to in their sleep, which means "not only did they process complex information while being completely asleep, but they did it unconsciously", say Kouider and Andrillon at the Conversation.

So what does this mean for all of us who dream about learning new things even as we sleep? It's known that sleep consolidates previously learned information, but introducing new information to us when we're sleeping is a whole other story. And what sacrifices would the brain have to make in order to achieve this? Would our dreams start interfering with our learning? For a phenomenon that's crucial to the existence of every animal on the planet, we've still got a lot to learn about the science of slumber.

Hi Briar,
Yes last Thursday, we woke up to see outside was flooded due to all night heavy rain. The water went inside my sister's house. i had to wear boots on my way to the office. The neighbor's houses were also flooded. When I arrived in the office it was like a ghost town. People were unable to pass by the deep water so they had to let it subside first so they arrived about 11 am. Many of them had their houses inundated and one was totally underwater and all his things were wet including books of his children. I could imagine why the 40 days and 40 nights of rain during the time of noah covered all the land. With just 24 hours here of rain, flooding everywhere. Also at the same time a tornado hit a school in downtown Cebu good thing nobody died. There was hale in Makati City in manila a day or two before the typhoon hit.
I am yet to visit my neighbors in the house i bought in the mountain which is near a river bank because I heard the water was so high and on the next town a huge rock fell as the rock loosened. Maybe will go there next week end.
Thank you for visiting. Have a happy Sunday.

I just read about Typhoon Fung-Wong on BBC News, where it has photos and also said, "The storm also lashed Cebu City in central Philippines, leaving parts of it 2m (6ft) underwater."

I remember Cebu City is where you are. I hope you and your loved ones are safe and dry!

In looking at my photos, I discovered another pot that was similar but appears to be a man. It is out by her little cottage in the backyard. I have not posted that photo as yet but have posted photos of the cottage earlier this summer. I did not even see the pot but yet it is in the photo from the summer as well.

You survived Run for a Cause and helped Bohol to Rise. I read in the fine print on that t-shirt the the goal is to rebuild Santa Cruz Chapel. What happened to the original? Was it destroyed by a typhoon or tsunami or by the ravages of time?

5 km is almost exactly the same as 3 miles, which is what I just barely managed to walk when I visited the Nisqually Wildlife Refuge last Thursday. Good for you!

Last night i had another weird dream. I dreamed there was a big snake behind me and i faced it while I was holding something.Then I saw a lot of people - some i know, some familiar faces and others were someone i just saw the first time. When I woke up, i was really thinking what could that dream mean. You see some superstitious people believe that when we dream of a snake someone is going to back bite us or stab us at the back. I thought maybe those familiar faces would.
Then I thought It could have been because before i went to bed, I was looking at the snake photo in the CC group. She was pretty yet i still felt the fear while looking at it.

When I went to the Office, I told my Office mates about the dream.
and they commented - Yeah maybe someone is going to stab you at the back.

When I arrived home, I spent time with my mama when suddenly Lucas was barking very loud and nervously. When the helper checked. She called me and said there is a snakeeee outside!... so i got a pole and something i could use to frighten the snake or to defend me in case it attacks. It was hiding behind the pot and when i tapped the pot, it crawled fast as it could! and then 3 cats were facing it. i was holding a big stick while watching them snake and cats fight. I was 10 feet away.(and of course holding my cellphone coz I thought it was a good creepy challenge piece) Then the helper called me.. there was another snake about 5 feet from me (and behind me) it was a smaller one about 2 inches round in diameter. I then realized There were two snakes on that pot and only the bigger one crawled to its safety. so i had to stand up and let the cats deal with the bigger one and faced the smaller one. pulling the plants away and tapping pots and each time i tap the pot where it was hiding, the poor thing crawled fast to escape. I asked the helper to crush garlic and scatter it around steel gate so the snake would not come back because they said snakes hates the smell of the garlic. Now that I am sitting here in front of my PC and updating this blog, I remembered my dream .. the dream.. I was facing the snake, before it happened.. I saw it while I was asleep.
Today being my "I am weird day today", I tried to make something that sounds like a poem .

SING
Today I sing a song or two
Each day a song for you
I may not sing well
Yet listen again and again
for in each Song - a story to tell

Listen and Remember this voice
for one day there will be no other choice
Separation of the Body and the Soul
as we answer the call

For you a song each day from heaven
When you hear it ..listen and smile
Wave and Say goodbye.

Posted on Saturday, 3:58 PM Philippine time -
Since Last Night, we been having gentle rain and once in a while strong winds. comes on goes. Wind was stronger than last night which started this morning.
ummm suddenly as I was typing this post I heard the birds outside and they were loud! could it be they are talking about the weather and it is going to be going better soon? or they are alarmed and telling everyone to brace and get ready? This one is not a strong typhoon and I hope it is not going to be damaging. I always believe them birds could tell when there is a strong wind is about to come.

Luis is expected to visit tomorrow and even if we are not directly hit, It was announced that we could feel its effect.

That means......... I need to bring a raincoat my Sunday dawn (which is tomorrow) as I join the 5k run ^_6.

Kalmaegi Potential Impacts

Landfall is expected in eastern Luzon on Sunday as the equivalent of a Category 1 hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson scale.

Heavy rain will begin to fall in the Philippines late Saturday, as Kalmaegi approaches, bringing the threat of flooding and mudslides. Damaging winds gusts and coastal flooding are also possible near where Kalmaegi makes landfall.

The Fusion Cooking Club came up with some strange concoctions. Mexican Lasagna caught my eye. At first, I was thinking very strange indeed, but then I read the recipe more carefully and I realize that this is not so much different from something we occasionally eat. Sometimes when I make a big pot of chili, using dried pinto beans, for a little variety, I will boil some macaroni and shred some cheese and mix it all together. So this is very similar, except that the pasta is a different shape and it is baked.

Tomorrow, I go at low tide to a wildlife refuge about 60 miles north of home. I hope to see some interesting shore birds to photograph.

Then I will go to the big farmers in Olympia and bring home lots of fresh corn. The corn I planted this year did not grow very well, so I have to buy corn. At home, I will boil the corn for 4 minutes, then cool it and cut the kernels off the cob and freeze it to enjoy this winter. It is true with corn and I think most vegetables and fruits that locally grown produce is tastier.

CNN) -- A huge relief operation is continuing across northern India and into Pakistan amid devastating floods that have killed hundreds of people and left tens of thousands more stranded.
Authorities in Pakistan, anticipating further rainfall and the passage of floodwater to more populous areas, have warned that the worst is yet to come.
The death toll is more than 400. Pakistan reported 257 killed, and India has reported at least 150.
Hundreds more in each country have been injured.
The count is expected to rise as rescuers regain access to areas cut off by floodwater.

The capital of Indian-administered Kashmir, Srinagar, was also deluged, with residents perched on rooftops and other high ground awaiting rescue. Many buildings in the old part of the city have collapsed, local media report.
Key infrastructure, such as bridges and roads, has been destroyed, hampering the army's relief efforts.
