Transcript of Arroyo's SONA, July 27, 2009

Thank you, ladies and gentlemen, good afternoon. Before I begin my report to the nation, please join me first in a moment of prayer for President Cory Aquino. Thank you, Speaker Nograles, Senate President Enrile, Senators, Representatives, Vice President de Castro, President Ramos, Chief Justice Puno, Ambassadors, friends: The past twelve months have been a year for the history books. Financial meltdown in the West spread throughout the world. Tens of millions lost their jobs; billions across the globe have been hurt-the poor always harder than the rich. No one was spared.. It has affected us already. But the story of the Philippines in 2008 is that the country weathered a succession of global crises in fuel, in food, then in finance and finally the economy in a global recession, never losing focus and with economic fundamentals intact. A few days ago, Moody's has just announced the upgrade of our credit rating, citing the resilience of our economy. The state of our nation is a str

Woman with A(H1N1) dies after giving birth to twins

A 25-year-old woman infected with influenza A(H1N1) died after giving birth to twin girls in a Baguio City hospital. Dr. Servando Liban II, medical director of the Saint Louis University (SLU) Hospital, said the woman was brought to them on Wednesday after manifesting flu-like symptoms. Liban said the woman was brought to the hospital's surgical intensive care unit to undergo caesarean operation and gave birth to premature twin girls the next day. She said the woman was infected with A(H1N1), but doctors have yet to determine the cause of her death. The doctor said throat swab samples have been taken from the twins. "We are still waiting for the result," Liban told ABS-CBN Baguio. Health officials said there are a total of 95confirmed cases of A(H1N1) in Baguio City, where a low-level community outbreak has been declared. The woman was the 6th A(H1N1) patient to have died in the Philippines. (via)

8 Harry Potter Tools For Relationships

In honor of the Potter nerd in all of us, we re-imagined eight magical objects from the Harry Potter world in the context of how they could benefit our not-always-magical love lives. 1. Polyjuice Potion:Imagine how fun role-playing could be with a vial of this elixir in your hands. Though it takes a month to make and tastes absolutely horrific, Polyjuice potion turns the imbiber into anyone they want for an hour-as long as you can obtain that person's hair for the potion, of course. Though the potion has mostly been used for spying and nefarious dealings in the books, we believe it could be put to good use during foreplay. Though, would it count as cheating? 2. Remembrall: Never forget a birthday or anniversary again with this smoke-filled orb that turns red when the user has forgotten something. Unfortunately, the Remeberall does not not specify exactly what you have forgotten-that part is up to you, as Neville Longbottom discovered when given one in the first book, Harry Potter a
