The Health Benefits Of Muscovado Sugar

Image
Muscovado Sugar tastes great with coffee and tea, I've been using it for it's health benefits because it is less processed. It is now making a comeback after a while especially for health conscious individuals who prefer organic sugar over cancer causing sugar alternatives or sweeteners.

Muscovado is from the Spanish word "mascabado" (unrefined). It was one of the export commodities of the Philippines, back in the 19th century until the late 1970s. It's also known as Barbados sugar. Check out the health benefits in this Livestrong article.

New Monitor Lizard Species found in the Philippines

Image
A new monitor lizard species was found in Sierra Madre, Philippines and is part of Top 10 New Species for 2011.

Each year the International Institute for Species Exploration (IISE) announces a list of the Top 10 New Species for the preceding calendar year. 1 of the Top 10 New Species listed was found in the Philippines, it's called the Northern Sierra Madre Forest monitor lizard and can grow up to 2 metres (6.6 ft) long! It's funny how scientists missed something this huge walking around in the forest. It also makes you wonder what else it out there waiting to be discovered.

Impossible Becomes Possible

There are somethings in this world that are just plain fun! One of them is magic, I like being entertained and surprised by things that very talented people can do. It's nice to try and figure out how it's actually done, and how the magician does his tricks. Yet in the end, it's nice to just be amazed!

In this video, we see some amazing feats of creativity, presentation, showmanship, and impeccable timing.

Level up farming - Using spiral growing tubes in compact spaces

Image
Take farming to the next level! I really like this idea from Whirligro a company which has products for vertical farming in compact spaces. Using spiral-shaped tubes to elevate food crops off the ground and greater yields like the ones in this picture.

Fast growing leafy crops are best used for the plastic tubes, and up to 30 plants can be squeezed into a one meter by one meter space. Watering can be done easily with a drip system.

PSI Seminars - Personal Success Institute

Image
What is PSI seminars? It is a personal success seminar from the US that a friend of mine recommended to me. After seeing the tremendous changes and improvements in his life, I decided to take a peek into this company. After attending an introduction, I learned a lot in their short presentation, and once I got a taste of what they were all about I craved for more and decided to sign-up.

After taking the PSI Basic Seminar in Manila, Philippines and Las Vegas, Nevada, I felt really optimistic and happier, there I met some really great people, made new friends and learned more about leadership, success and personal power.

In the USA their website is - PSI Seminars - Personal Success Institute There's also a website for the Philippines - PSI Seminars Manila Philippines.
