"Never forget the roots of your family"

A little serious of our mind:

 Try to imagine, that your grandchildren can´t speak with you in your language......

Learn your family the language of the roots, so your family - children can speak their language from childhood!

Learn your family the culture of the roots, so your family understand and respect the roots e.g. Mano Po!

Jay explained about Globe warns of new text scam

MANILA, Philippines - Published on Jan 31, 2013 Globe Telecom, Inc. on Tuesday advised postpaid subscribers to be cautious of text scams which entice people by telling them they can get discounts or rebates on their monthly bills. "Subscribers are requested to validate unusual texts and calls especially if they do not come from official four-digit Globe numbers," the telco firm said in a statement. "Texts and calls of this nature have a primary motive of asking for personal information, soliciting money or prepaid load, or using your account to purchase items online." One of those circulating "promo" messages reads: GLOBE Postpaid: Congrats! You're the one selected postpaid plan given P150 discount billing, to get your P150 discount billing just text 150 send to 2916XXXXXXX. Globe stressed that adding a "2" before the 10-digit mobile number of the recipient results in a Share-A-Load transaction, which means the victim would have transferred the amount to the scammer after pressing the "Send" button. "It is best not to respond, and immediately report suspicious texts or calls to authorized Globe customer service channels," the firm said.

Short Message Service (SMS)

Text messaging, or texting, is the act of typing and sending a brief, electronic message between two or more mobile phones or fixed or portable devices over a phone network. While the original term was derived from referring to messages sent using the Short Message Service (SMS) originated from Radio Telegraphy, it has since been extended to include messages containing image, video, and sound content (known as MMS messages). The sender of a text message is known as a texter, while the service itself has different colloquialisms depending on the region: it may simply be referred to as a text in North America, Australia, the Philippines and the United Kingdom, an SMS in most of mainland Europe, and a TMS or SMS in the Middle East and Asia.

SMS for the Blind

Philippines students develope a program allowing the visually impaired to read text messages.

Thanks to a new invention by university students in the Philippines, blind people may be able to use mobile phones with much more ease. Engineering students created a mobile phone for the visually impaired by putting a braille pad on the console to help them read and send text messages. One of the country's largest mobile phone networks is now looking into developing and distributing the braille units at an affordable price.
