Robredo: Marcos should stop using poll protest case for publicity (philstar.com) - July 10, 2018 - 5:08pm MANILA, Philippines — Vice President Leni Robredo called out former Sen.

MANILA, Philippines — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony before the US Senate on April 4 and 5 drew global attention and brought on a global media frenzy, and understandably so. The social media behemoth has 2.2 billion users globally, more than half of the world’s 4 billion Internet users and nearly three-fourths of the world’s 3.1 billion active social media users. The landmark hearing on Capitol Hill was investigating serious issues: data privacy, consumer protection, use and abuse of people’s information for political targeting. As Sen. John Thune, chairman of the commerce committee, said, the incident that prompted the investigation was a quiz app used by approximately 300,000 people that led to information about 87 million Facebook users being obtained by a company and used for political targeting. “And it is not likely an isolated incident,” he said. But why should the Philippines care about issues half a world away, mainly about … [Read more...] about Why should I care about Facebook Privacy?
What you should really fear about FOMO (Shift from YOLO to YAGO) FOMO is a millennial term that stands for Fear Of Missing Out. It is a form of social anxiety, a compulsive concern that one might miss an opportunity or satisfying event, often aroused by posts seen on social media. Because of the prevalent use of social media, both children and adults have become prone to comparing what others have to what they have – “My friends are all vacationing in nice places this summer.” “She always looks so glamorous in her signature outfits.” “Wow! He already has that gadget even if it’s not yet available here.” “Aww… she just got engaged and what a big rock she has on her finger!” No one is immune from the danger of feeling the pressure of unnecessary comparison, “Am I missing out on the fun? Does my life suck, compared to those of my friends? Poor me!” The effect of feeling sorry for … [Read more...] about What you should really fear about FOMO (Shift from YOLO to YAGO)

Over the last year he’s been declining in our sex life to about twice a month. He’s told me he has absolutely no sex drive or desire. He constantly says how pretty I am, but won’t touch me.

Tax Day falls on April 17 this year, but you can file your taxes as soon as you have the correct forms from your employer. The IRS recommends filing your taxes online and requesting direct deposit for your tax refund. H&R Block and TurboTax both offer free tax filing if you made less than $66,000 in 2017. It’s mid-February – a full two months before tax day – and I’ve already filed my taxes using H&R Block. It feels great to have checked that daunting task off my to-do list, especially since I’ve already received my state tax refund via direct deposit and should be getting my federal tax refund any day now.

Last year, I was waiting for my tax refund to come in the mail for about two months before I realized … [Read more...] about Last year my tax refund was stolen — here’s what you should do so it doesn’t happen to you
