Did you tie yellow ribbons on the old oak trees yet?

Me? I didn’t!

Actually, and honestly, since I graduated college, three years ago, I’ve been passive in almost but not all political things and events in the country. Obviously, I can’t feel the essence of celebrating the EDSA revolution 25th anniversary today. Do you? Smiley

Together, let’s just sing this song, Tie a Yellow Ribbon on Old Oak Tree by Tonie Christie. Smiley

Sinulog 2012 — FREE WiFi in Cebu City

Days before the Sinulog 2012 grand parade, I’ve already read a post from a Cebu-based blogger friend regarding the Free WiFi access in Cebu City.

Sinulog 2012 -- FREE Wifi in Cebu CitySinulog 2012 — FREE WiFi in Cebu City

Indeed, there were areas in Cebu City during the grand parade and the celebration of Sinulog 2012 where WiFi access was free. These areas were Gorordo to Fuente Osmeña Circle, General Maxilom Avenue, Osmeña Boulevard, selected areas in North Bacalso Avenue and P. del Rosario, Cebu City Hall, Provincial Capitol, the Cebu City Sports Center, Magellan’s Cross and Plaza Independencia.

According to PLDT, the WiFi provider, this is yet the first outdoor FREE WiFi access made available.

Stanchions and Barricades

In this holiday season, public places such as shopping malls, parks and banks are the most heavily numbered in terms of people. Shopping — doing the groceries and other basic necessities for home and parties are being prepared for. Other things which make people busy these days are personal transactions like bank withdrawals in banks, attending parties and other events and sight-seeing and strolling in parks. But have you noticed that even how crowded these places become, things are yet still well-managed?

Crowd control stanchions and barricades are the most fitted materials and basic things which are commonly used in the above mentioned places.

Stanchions are made of steel or plastic stuff used as poles to connect chains and velvet ropes which can be seen in payment counters in malls and banks to direct costumers in making a line — making them more organized in doing their shopping and bank transactions.

On the other hand, barricades are usually for bigger number of people than in malls and banks like in parks or any recreational halls and outdoor venues holding and covering concerts and gatherings. Barricades can also be used in traffic control too. These barricades are basically for privacy and crowd control and security as well.

Google Doodles Pierre de Fermat’s ‘Last Theorem’ On His 410th Birthday

Seems like Google is getting arithmetically-inclined today.

If you happen to see the Google homepage today, mathematical figures are shown on it.It, actually, is related to Pierre de Fermat because today is  Fermat’s 410th birthday celebration.

According to wikipedia,

In number theory, Fermat’s Last Theorem states that no three positive integers a, b, and c can satisfy the equation an + bn = cn for any integer value of n greater than two, as long as a, b, and c are not equal. This theorem was first conjectured by Pierre de Fermat in 1637, famously in the margin of a copy of Arithmetica where he claimed he had a proof that was too large to fit in the margin. No successful proof was published until 1995 despite the efforts of countless mathematicians during the 358 intervening years. The unsolved problem stimulated the development of algebraic number theory in the 19th century and the proof of the modularity theorem in the 20th. It is among the most famous theorems in the history of mathematics and prior to its 1995 proof was in the Guinness Book of World Records for “most difficult maths problem”.

Just so today, I have learned about the number theory. Thanks to Pierre de Fermat for his brilliant minds!

Google Doodles Gregor Mendel’s 189th Birthday

The study of genetics is one of the most amazing topics in the study of life that I was fascinated to learn at when I was in college. Amazing and exciting are the most appropriate words to describe studying genetics in a way that even the smallest thing in the living organism that could possibly be inherited to its daughter offspring are revealed.

Today, with Google, let’s all celebrate the 189th birthday of the father of genetics, Gregor Mendel.

Gregor Johann Mendel was born on July 20, 1822. He is a Czech-German.

As far as I learned, remembered from my previous lessons, but just correct me if I am wrong, he studied the inheritance of traits of the pea plants. Upon doing such, he postulated the Mendelian Law of Genetics which basically explains the heritable genes children of any living organism acquired from their respective parents.
