Ten Tips To Avoid A Heart Attack

A heart attack is known as a myocardial infarction. This occurs when the heart muscle is damaged or does not receive enough oxygen. Many cardiac related problems occur due to blockages in arteries that carry purified blood away from the heart to different parts of the body. Another cause is the formation of blood clots.

Very often, it is quite difficult to differentiate between a heart attack and heartburn. The common signs of a heart attack are a tightness, pain, or discomfort in the chest. Sweating, nausea, and vomiting that are accompanied by intense pressure in the chest. A radiating and intense pain in the chest that extends from the chest to the left arm. A shortness of breath for more than a few minutes. If you have any of the above you must consult the doctor or go to the emergency rooms.

If you even think you are having a heart attack you must call for a cardiac care ambulance, and put under your tongue a sorbitrate or chew an aspirin. If you are allergic to aspirin don’t take one. At the hospital care will include rapid thrombolysis, cardiac catheterization, and angioplasty. They will also administer intravenously clot busting medications.

The risk factors for a heart attack include: smoking, diabetes, high levels of cholesterol, hypertension, family history of heart diseases, atherosclerosis, lack of exercise, obesity, and fast foods.

Reduce the risks of a heart attack by:

1. Quitting smoking.

2. Eating healthy. Avoid fatty foods, excess salt, and red meats.

3. Controlling high blood pressure and diabetes.

4. Ensuring regular exercise at least 30 minutes a day. Walking is most beneficial.

5. Preventing obesity. Doing all you can to maintain weight.

6. Choosing to live a healthy lifestyle.

7. Practicing meditation.

8. Doing regular relaxation and breathing exercises.

9. Undergoing periodic cardiac evaluations.

10. Including foods that are rich in anti-oxidants in your diet.

A killer disease, according to the American Heart Association approximately 58.8 million people in the US suffer from heart diseases. And, about 950,000 Americans die of heart ailments each year. Heart diseases and death from it can be prevented by maintaining your health. Find a balance in life between work and other activities, abandon the couch for the outdoors, don’t watch sports on television play sports instead and you can hope to live a long and fulfilled life.

How To Stay Feeling Young

1. Throw out nonessential numbers and factors.
This includes age, height, eye and skin color, who your parents
are, past stuff and present stuff that you can’t change.
Don’t worry about what you cannot change.

2. Keep only cheerful friends. The grouches pull you down.
Who you are attached to will bless you up or mess you up.
Make sure that YOU are a cheerful friend and not a grouch.

3. Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts,
gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle. ‘An idle mind is
the devil’s workshop.’ And the devil’s name is Alzheimer’s.

4. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath.

5. Enjoy the simple things. Breath is one of the simple things.

6. The tears happen. Endure, grieve, and move on. Don’t blame
others for your situation. The only person, who is with us our
entire life, is ourselves. Be ALIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love, whether it’s family,
pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever. Your home is
your refuge.

8. Cherish your health: If it is good, preserve it. If it is
unstable, improve it. If it is beyond what you can improve, get
help. Your body is the most important vehicle you will ever own.

9. Don’t take guilt trips. Take a trip to the mall, even to the
next county; to a foreign country but NOT to where the guilt is.

10. Tell the people you love that you love them, at every

Feel young and live life to its fullest each day!

OFWs propose reprimand

OFWs propose reprimand
Manila Bulletin – Manila,Philippines

An alliance of overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) Saturday proposed a reprimand for unscrupulous recruitment agencies compelling OFWs for new passports even if they are still not expired.

Migrante said the Philippine Overseas Employment Administration (POEA) and the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFA) should look into the increasing number of complaints on devious agencies to stop harassment of OFWs in the Middle East and in the Philippines.

“We are calling on POEA Administrator Jennifer Manalili to reprimand or even suspend agencies requiring OFWs and would-be OFWs to renew their un-expired passport, which is in gross violation of the green-passport-validity policy of the DFA,’’ said John Leonard Monterona, regional coordinator of Migrante Middle East.

Life Story of A Champion Manny Pacquiao

The Life Story of a Champion….
(A funny tribute to Manny Pacquiao)





Manny Pacquiao was born
in General Santos City.



At an early age ,
Manny is already showing
signs of athleticism.



Manny came from a poor family.
So most of the time , he ‘ s on the street begging.



Because of his determination , Manny was able to finish Elementary.



Unfortunately because of poverty ,
he ‘ s not lucky enough to finish High School.



At the age of 15 ,
he already showed his inclination
on different sports like….

Sumo Wrestling


and Basketball




However , sad to say Manny
failed on those sports…

That ‘ s why Manny became very depressed.

So depressed…



Until Freddie Roach came to the rescue



and the rest is history….


At present , Manny holds the distinction of being
a seven time world champion in 7 different weight division.

Because of his popularity in the boxing world….
Manny became an International Celebrity.

He already made international
and local films like….

“Super Pac-Man”


“Dragon Ball Z”


“Saving Sergeant Pacquiao”


“Star Wars”


“Lord of the Rings”


and “Twilight”


Because of the success of Twilight
a local sequel was produced and
it was entitled….



Other Local Films made by Manny are….



“Tora-Tora Bang-Bang”


and the top grossing “Tao ba Ako Inay?”


He also made top rating Teleserye like….





and “Meteor Rain”


Because of Manny ‘ s popularity ,
his mother Aling Dionisia also
became an instant celebrity.

Just like Manny , Aling Dionisia
also made top rating Teleserye like…



and “Katursi”


Manny was not really happy about the
idea of his mother joining showbiz ,
because in short span of time
Aling Dionisia got involved
in various sex scandals like….

Careless Whisper Scandal


and Web Cam Scandal


Despite the intrigues ,
Manny is continuously receiving
medals and awards because of the
honor he has given to our country.


For all of us…..he ‘ s a Hero!!!


Actually , there ‘ s a proposal in Congress
to print Manny Pacquiao ‘ s face
in the Five Peso Bill.


We can never tell….in the near future
because of Fame and Fortune ,
Manny Pacquiao could become
the next Philippine President.


WOW! what a Cinderella story……
hahahaha…. it was so touching!

Definitely we are not laughing at Manny Pacquiao ,
neither we are laughing at Mommy Dionisia.
We are laughing at the pictures depicting both of them.

Who will laugh at Manny Pacquiao….

Our world stops every time he ‘ s on the ring ,
the crime rate goes down and you can feel the
unity among Filipinos.

He ‘ s an inspiration to all of us.

He ‘ s the best pound for pound boxer in world
right now and nobody can dispute that.

Just recently he gave another honor to our country
by becoming the cover of Time Magazine.


Last November 14 , Manny Pacquiao set
a new world record as the 1st boxer
to become a “Seven time Champion of the World”
in as many different weight divisions.

What a Feat!!!……..
