Many Filipinos especially those in the remote areas of the country.   They can only avail of medical attention once in a blue moon through medical missions coming from non-government organizations (NGO's) and other health advocacy groups. Instances also happen where citizens, even at the heart of the city suffer illnesses and just succumb to their deaths without having treated due to expensive medications and hospitalization. Soon, all Filipinos will have access to free health services including the families of the overseas Filipino workers (OFW).   This situation is about to change as the new universal health bill was already approved and soon to be enacted as a law. The Senate passed on third and final reading a bill that seeks to provide adequate health care services to Filipinos. The senators unanimously voted for the approval of Senate Bill #1986 also known as the "Universal Health Care Bill."   President Rodrigo Duterte wanted it to be certified urgent and called for the proposed measure's passage at the Senate.       Ads     Sponsored Links     With this law being enacted, Filipinos will be given health care coverage and benefits under the National Health Security Program, which replaces the National Health Insurance Program or Philhealth.  Under the universal health care law, "contributors" or those who have the capacity to pay will have to pay for their premiums while the government will shoulder the contributions of non-contributors. Funds for the subsidy will be included in the annual General Appropriations Act as well as sin taxes from cigarettes will also be a major source of funding for the policy.  Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, who authored the bill when he was still a party-list representative, thanked the Senate for passing what he considers to be a "groundbreaking" law.  The House of Representative had previously passed a version of the bill (House Bill No 5784) in September 2017.     The President's move in certifying the bill as urgent shows the administration's "unrelenting commitment to provide the marginalized and disadvantaged with sufficient and better health care services," Roque said.

More often, families with overseas Filipino workers (OFW) rely on their OFW breadwinner in providing their needs and without doing any efforts to have extra income. They use the money they receive to pay their bills, rents, mortgages, etc. They tend to spend the remittances they receive and wait for the next remittance when the money is over without any savings. This is the reason why no matter how long the OFWs exhaust themselves working overseas, they are still coming home broke and without any savings.  Encouraging our spouse or anyone who is responsible for the remittances you send to save could be a great help and could guarantee a hassle-free retirement, much more if they placed this savings to a profitable investment.

They could also spend the remaining part of the budget after setting aside the savings.  No matter how small the savings, it could mean a lot after a period of time you regularly do it.    Use the credit card wisely or do not use it at all  Credit cards could be an advantage when purchasing but it can also lure the holder to spend more.

The best rule should be, do not spend the money you do not have.     Always make a list of important things to buy  Many OFW spouses tend to go on a shopping spree just after receiving the remittance and let their impulses lead in which items they like to buy at the very moment without putting their priorities on the things they really needed.  Encourage them to develop a habit and discipline of making a list of the things they need to prioritize during shopping and strictly follow what is on the list to avoid spending too much on the things that are not really important.    Live a lifestyle that suits your income  Many OFW spouses live like one day millionaire. after claiming the remittances you sent, they will go straight to the mall, eat at the fast-food chain of their choice, go on a shopping spree buying what they want without even thinking if they still have the money to go through the month until the next remittance.

More often, families with overseas Filipino workers (OFW) rely on their OFW breadwinner in providing their needs and without doing any efforts to have extra income.

How Much Damage Saudi Arabia Can Do to the Global Economy If Sanctioned by the US?



US President Donald Trump issues threats of "severe punishment" to Saudi Arabia if the Kingdom is responsible for the disappearance and suspected murder of Washington Post contributor Jamar Khashoggi.  Who is Jamar Khashoggi? Khashoggi is a writer of the Washington Post and a critic of Saudi Arabia, particularly of Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman. In his writing, Khashoggi often criticizes policies imposed by the prince such as the following;   Saudi Arabia's role in a war in Yemen Diplomatic Spat between Saudi Arabia and Canada Saudi Arabia's arrest of women rights activist after lifting the ban on women driving.  Khashoggi vanished on October 2 after visiting Saudi Consulates in Istanbul, Turkey. A report said, authorities in Turkey obtain audio and visual evidence that showed Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate. Turkish officials have said they fear a Saudi killed and dismembered Khashoggi.  Trump said the case of Jamal Khashoggi was "being looked at very, very strongly" and that his administration "would be very upset and angry" if it turned out that the Saudi government had ordered his killing. He also said that there would be "severe punishment" if the missing Saudi journalist was found to be murdered.  Saudi Arabia dismissed the accusation as "lies and baseless" and also rejects political and economic threats from the US. In a statement, the Kingdom said, it would respond to any punitive action "with bigger one". This is the warning of Saudi Arabia as top oil exporter of the world.  But what happens if the US imposes sanctions on Saudi Arabia and the Kingdom retaliates? How much damage it can cost to the global economy?   In his editorial, Turki Aldhakhil, general manager of Al Arabiya, official Saudi news channel, he said, Saudi Arabia will have a powerful hand to play if tensions with the US and the West escalates. According to him, Saudi Arabia enjoys a privileged position both in geopolitical and economic terms. It said that Saudi's most obvious advantage is its vast oil reserves — makes the Kingdom as world's largest oil exporter, pumping or shipping about 7 million barrels a day.   With this Riyadh has a very wide influence on the global economy because it has a power to dictate or push up prices. According to Aldhakhil, Riyadh is weighing up 30 measures designed to put pressure on the US if it will impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia over the disappearance and suspected murder of Jamal Khashoggi.   These would include an oil production cut that could drive prices from around $80 (£60) a barrel to more than $400, more than double the all-time high of $147.27 reached in 2008. This would have profound consequences globally, not just because motorists would pay more at the petrol pump, but because it would force up the cost of all goods that travel by road.  Saudi Arabia also supports thousands of US jobs via its arms purchases. It is the world’s second-largest arms importer. Saudi Arabia was the biggest arms customer last year, signing $17.5 billion worth of deals. If sanctioned by the US, it said thay Riyadh could simply switch its purchase to other major arms exporters such as Russia and China.  Aldakhil added that if the US sanctioned are imposed on Saudi Arabia, economic disaster would rock the entire world and Washington will stab its own economy to death even though it thinks that it is stabbing only Riyadh.

Bye, Skinny Days! Here Are Some Effective Ways To Gain Weight



While some find it hard to lose weight, there are also people who are having troubles in increasing their body mass.

According to the Natural Food Series, here are the some of the things that you can do to gain weight:


1. Eat regularly
Decide what time will you eat. Eating during the same hours each day decreases the risk of missing out on a meal due to lack of time or forgetfulness.

“One way to go about this could be to aim for six meals/day, including: (1) breakfast, (2) snack, (3) lunch, (4) snack, (5) dinner, and (6) snack. Eating accordingly, with a meal at every third hour, is an approach that works great for tons of people. Experiment and find a schedule that suits your needs and daily life,” it was noted.

2. Eat more calories

To gain weight, one of the first things you need to do is to create a positive energy balance. 

“This basically means that the energy you get from your food intake needs to be higher than the amount of energy that you burn (by moving and exercising),” it was explained. 

3. Add more fat to your diet
Fat is the most energy dense out of all nutrients, containing as much as nine calories per one gram. 

“In other words, eating more fat is a great way to boost your total caloric intake and thus, help you gain weight…. Start by topping your meals with olive oil. Use full-fat dairy products instead of the low-fat choices. Fill out your stews with seeds, nuts, or cheese. Other great fat sources are eggs, avocado, almonds, walnuts, peanut-butter, and yogurt – which also suits perfectly as snacks,” it was disclosed. 


4. Enjoy your meal
While eating, one must avoid stress or rushing.

“Take time to sit down and actually enjoy your food. Add different flavors and spices from what you normally use when you cook. Or get inspired by trying a completely new recipe. Another way to that could help you to gain weight is by eating in company with others,” it was advised.
