Category: article reposted from other blogs



I came across this blog a few mins ago.. and it kept me wondering.. how many times have these words been used on me? LOL!  Found it funny, ‘coz I used to get all these a lot.. way a lot of times.. haha!

 

Oh well, so i’m reposting them.  For all those guys or not guys out there who’s kinda insensitive like me, well.. When you get these from a girl, it’s better that ur aware of what it really means, rather than being so naive leading to an endless argument.  Haha! Take it from me!  Enjoy reading!

 

 

1. Fine = This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

 

2. Five Minutes = If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

 

3. Nothing = This is the calm before the storm. This means something, and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with “nothing” usually end in “fine”.

 

4. Go Ahead = This is a dare, not permission. So, DON’T DO IT!

 

5. Loud Sigh = This is actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A loud sigh means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you about nothing. (Refer back to # 3 for the meaning of nothing.)

 

6. That’s Okay = This is one of the most dangerous statements a women can make to a man. That’s okay means she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

 

7. Thanks = A woman is thanking you, do not question, or faint. Just say you’re welcome. (I want to add in a clause here – This is true, unless she says ‘Thanks a lot’ – that is PURE sarcasm and she is not thanking you at all. DO NOT say “you’re welcome”. that will bring on a “whatever”).

 

8. Whatever = Is a woman’s way of saying F– YOU or EWAN KO SA’YO!!!

 

9. Don’t worry about it, I got it = Another dangerous statement, meaning this is something that a woman has told a man to do several times, but is now doing it herself. This will later result in a man asking “What’s wrong?” For the woman’s response refer to #3.


I was just surfing the net as usual when I came across this FACEBOOK acct/FANPage acct of MS. ANGEL LOCSIN.

 

While I was reading the posts, it came by surprise seeing a familiar article about MOSBEAU Philippines.  So I kept reading.  When I was half way through, I noticed that the author and I had a similar way of writing.  As I went on, I immediately recalled a similar article which I posted, stating of Angel’s endorsement for Mosbeau.

 

I dropped by my site to check.. It hit me by surprise when I noticed my WHOLE ARTICLE was copied onto the said FACEBOOK acct.  I searched around the note to confirm whether there were any credits mentioned.  Unfortunately, I didn’t see any.  My name wasn’t even mentioned in the said article.  (oh yeah, coz i didn’t mention my name in my articles anyway.  Since that fella copied my posts –word-per-word!)

 

Here is the Link to Ms. Angel Locsin’s FACEBOOK: ANGEL LOCSIN

And here are the links to two of my blogs which was obviously copied:  tried and tested by ANGEL , to be expected..


I have nothing against to whoever handles Angel’s site.  I just felt bad because NO credits were placed about my blog.
Don’t get me wrong.  This is where PLAGIARISM comes in.

 

The word plagiarism comes from a Latin word which means kidnapping.  Kidnapping is basically stealing a person. Well, plagiarism is similar to that.  It is merely stealing a person’s ideas or writing.  Someone’s words and thoughts are personal property too you know.

 

Within academia, plagiarism by students, professors, or researchers is considered academic dishonesty or academic fraud and offenders are subject to academic censure. In journalism, plagiarism is considered a breach of journalistic ethics, and reporters caught plagiarizing typically face disciplinary measures ranging from suspension to termination. Some individuals caught plagiarizing in academic or journalistic contexts claim that they plagiarized unintentionally, by failing to include quotations or give the appropriate citation. While plagiarism in scholarship and journalism has a centuries-old history, the development of the Internet, where articles appear as electronic text, has made the physical act of copying the work of others much easier, simply by copying and pasting text from one web page to another.

Plagiarism is different from copyright infringement. While both terms may apply to a particular act, they emphasize different aspects of the transgression. Copyright infringement is a violation of the rights of the copyright holder, when material is used without the copyright holder’s consent. On the other hand, plagiarism is concerned with the unearned increment to the plagiarizing author’s reputation that is achieved through false claims of authorship.Online plagiarism
Since it is very easy to steal content from the web by simply copying and pasting, the problem of online plagiarism is growing. This phenomenon, also known as content scraping, is affecting both established sites [3] and blogs [4]. The motivation is often to attract away part or all of the original site’s search engine-generated web traffic and to convert these stolen visitors into revenue through the use of online ads.

Plagiarism is quickly becoming part of our educational culture. More and more students are turning to the internet for quick “shortcuts” around the time-consuming work of writing research papers.

Free online tools are becoming available to detect and prevent plagiarism [5], and there are a range of approaches that attempt to limit online copying, such as disabling right clicking and placing warning banners against plagiarism on web pages. Once identified, instances of plagiarism are commonly addressed by the rightful content owners sending a DMCA removal notice to the offending site-owner, or to the ISP that is hosting the offending site.

Other contexts
Generally, although plagiarism is often loosely referred to as theft or stealing, it has not been set as a criminal matter in the courts.[6] Likewise, plagiarism has no standing as a criminal offense in the common law. Instead, claims of plagiarism are a civil law matter, which an aggrieved person can resolve by launching a lawsuit. Acts that may constitute plagiarism are in some instances treated as copyright infringement, unfair competition, or a violation of the doctrine of moral rights. The increased availability of intellectual property due to a rise in technology has furthered the debate as to whether copyright offences are criminal.

With this, it is OBVIOUS that I HAVE ALL THE RIGHT to file for a lawsuit to demand for royalties since my work has been used without my consent or permission.

 


OSU-autumn

I was just browsing around to check of what are the news around the globe.. then I was caught with the title: “Two women in same OSU office ill with a fungal disease that attacks the lungs – histoplasmosis“.  The article was basically about 2 professors at the Ohio State University who was diagnosed to be positive with HISTOPLASMOSIS.  A fungus that causes histoplasmosis grows in bat and bird droppings.

Histoplasmosis is a common fungal infection endemic in many regions of America, Asia, India and Africa, with sporadic cases also occurring throughout the world. The usual manifestation of histoplasmosis is in the form of respiratory illness.  The disease presents itself in many ways. The commonest route of infection is by inhalation and the commonest presentation is as a mild respiratory illness similar to a cold or influenza. However this infection affects the skin and bones may times presenting as a tumour. Histology usually settles the dilemma.
