HISTORY OF MY BEING BLOCKED BY FACEBOOK – Updated = January 13, 2019

I was again blocked by Facebook in my first Timeline for 30 days started January 11, 2019 for posting my old picture in swimming trunk exposing my chest and nipples (it considers this nudity) and it retrieved my old post on circumcision showing surgery on the penis which was posted about 3 years ago (again, nudity).

Thus, this will be FIFTH time that I am blocked by Facebook. Duration: 30 days from January 11, 2019. So the block will last until February 10 or 11, 2019. “Blocked” means I cannot post anything on my first timeline and pages and groups. I cannot also post messages in Messenger nor respond to messages. However, I can see posts and notifications from friends.

HISTORY OF MY BEING BLOCKED BY FACEBOOK – as of October 2018

First time – In July 2017, I posted a photo of far-advanced breast cancer as part of my breast cancer awareness. I was blocked for one day despite my explanation it was educational and part of my breast cancer awareness program. FB insisted it was against its Community Standards.

Second time – In November 2017, I posted a photo of a breast with needle aspiration of macrocyst. Again, part of my educational posts but against Community Standards of Facebook. I was blocked for 3 days.

Since then, I refrained from posting breasts pictures again on Facebook or anything that is considered nudity by Facebook. However, I was shocked when Facebook for the third time and fourth time blocked me without giving me a chance to explain. They blocked me for my older posts.

Third time – in August 23, 2018, I was blocked again. The video on How to Do Breast Self-examination has been posted in Facebook since 2015 and I have been reposting it every month as a reminder to my readers. With no objection from Facebook, I thought it was acceptable under the exception (breast cancer awareness). I was surprised on August 23, 2018 when Facebook decided to remove it and punished me with a 7-day block.

Fourth time – in September 13, 2018, I was blocked again for an anti-circumcision picture which was posted in 2017. I was blocked for 30 days – from September 13, 2018 to October 13, 2018.

Since November 2017, as mentioned above, I have refrained from posting medical pictures which are against the Community Standards of Facebook. However, I am still being blocked for old pictures that I posted before. This means that I have to look at my old posts from 2011 to 2018 and delete every pictures that are against the Community Standards of Facebook. Otherwise, If not, I will be blocked again, longer, and Facebook may delete my account.

What a hassle!

I hope Facebook will be more understanding to the objectives of my Facebook Project.

Preparing for the Death of a Loved One

Preparing for the death of a loved one – ROJoson’s notes

All persons will die one day.  Scientists have studied that the upper limit of longevity of human beings is at best 125 years, however, the odds is 1 in 10,000.  Age at death of the world’s oldest person has not increased since the 1990s.  The oldest human being on record is Jeanne Louise Calment,  who died at age 122 in 1997.

Evidence for a limit to human lifespan

Xiao Dong, Brandon Milholland, Jan Vijg

Nature volume538pages257–259 (13 October 2016)

Let us all prepared for death so that we can help ourself and our loved ones.

Here are some notes that I collected from the Net – preparing for death of a loved one. I also included how to prepare death for ourselves.

How to Prepare for the Death of a Loved One

How to Prepare for Death in Your Own Home

https://www.verywellhealth.com/preparing-for-death-1132516

No one wants to face death, yet no one can escape it.  What we can do is hope our own death is comfortable, peaceful, and meaningful.

Preparing for death should start before you even receive a terminal diagnosis.

Review Your Life

One of the most important things you will do as you prepare for death is reviewed your life.  This is the step most people talk about when they discuss regrets, accomplishments, hopes, and dreams.  Doing a life review is a way to bring closure to a dying individual.  It can also serve as a legacy of life to the dying individual’s loved ones.

Whether you decide to do an internal life review or record your life story for loved ones, reviewing your life is an important step to take as you prepare for death

 



The Art of Dying Well

Living Well – Dying Well
Dying Well – Living Well
Art of Living Well – Art of Dying Well
Art of Dying Well – Art of Living Well
Learning to Die – Learning to Live
Learning to Live – Learning to Die



Since we have born, we have to die one day.

There are three things sure about death.

  1. One day we will die.
  2. No one knows the exact time of death.
  3. No one knows how we will die.

Death is something that we all have to face sooner or later.

The best way to prepare for death is to live every day as if it is the last. Have no regrets.

Date and Time Format – Standardization – Revisit

January 1, 2019

Today is the first day of the year 2019.  I have to get used to indicating 2019 now in my date recording.  Especially, on the first month of a new year, I usually carry over the past year in my date recording.  A potential glitch that I have to be vigilant on.

While thinking of this challenge, I thought of revisiting what I wrote in 2013 regarding standardization of date and time notation format.  [see links below.]  Up to the present, 2019, I still see a lot of people and countries not using the standardized date and time notation format as recommended by ISO 8601.

Old habits die hard.  As an educator, I just have to be perseverent in reminding everybody of the standardized notation format of date and time as recommended by ISO 8601.  We live in an age of globalization. We should have a common date and time notation format to facilitate international, national, and institutional communication and to avoid misunderstanding which may lead to hitches in quality and safe services (particularly in the field of medical services – my profession).  It helps cut out the uncertainty and confusion when communicating internationally, nationally, and locally in institutions.

The standardized format for DATE as recommended by ISO 8601:

yyyy-mm-dd

Examples:

2008-09-15  – means September 15, 2008

2019-01-01 – means January 1, 2019

2019-01-11 – means January 11, 2019 and not to November 1, 2019


 

The standardized format for TIME as recommended by ISO 8601:

hh:mm:ss or just hh:mm

Examples:

15:53:00 – means 3 o’clock in the afternoon and 53 minutes

01:01:00 – means 1 o’clock in the morning and 1 minute

12:30 – means 12 0’clock noon and 30 minutes

24:00 – means midnight

24:10 – 10 minutes past midnight

Texts from ROJoson (2013 posts):

What is ISO 8601?

ISO 8601 describes an internationally accepted way to represent dates and times using numbers.

DATES:

When dates are represented with numbers they can be interpreted in different ways. For example, 01/05/12 could mean January 5, 2012, or May 1, 2012. On an individual level this uncertainty can be very frustrating, in a business context it can be very expensive. Organizing meetings and deliveries, writing contracts and buying airplane tickets can be very difficult when the date is unclear.

ISO 8601 tackles this uncertainty by setting out an internationally agreed way to represent dates:

YYYY-MM-DD

For example, September 27, 2012 is represented as 2012-09-27.

http://www.iso.org/iso/home/standards/iso8601.htm

ROJoson’s Recommendation (2013-07-03):

From now on, if you want to indicate dates with number, use the YYYY-MM-DD format.

 

TIMES:

ISO 8601 uses the 24-hour clock system. The basic format is [hh][mm][ss] and the extended format is [hh]:[mm]:[ss].

  • [hh] refers to a zero-padded hour between 00 and 24 (where 24 is only used to notate midnight at the end of a calendar day).
  • [mm] refers to a zero-padded minute between 00 and 59.
  • [ss] refers to a zero-padded second between 00 and 60 (where 60 is only used to notate an added leap second).

So a time might appear as either “134730” in the basic format or “13:47:30” in the extended format.

Or 1330 and 13:30 without the seconds.

http://www.iso.org/iso/home/standards/iso8601.htm

ROJoson’s Recommendations (2013-07-03):

From now on, if you want to indicate dates with number, use the YYYY-MM-DD format.

For time, [hh][mm][ss] or [hh]:[mm]:[ss] or [hh][mm] or [hh]:[mm].



ROJOSON’S SIDE NOTES:

In my blogs and in my Facebook, whenever I put a date notation, I use the ISO 8601 format.  Examples: 19jan1; 18dec30; etc.

In creating a file name for my digital documents, I usually put a date notation.  Again, I use the ISO 8601 format.  Examples: roj_cv_roj_18dec31; art_assisting_opn_18nov3; etc.

Whatever you place in the Net, you are being tracked

Take note: whatever you place in the Net in the free sites (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google Sites, WordPress.com, YouTube, Slideshare, Scribd, etc), you are being tracked for business purposes (by advertisers) and scam purposes (by hackers).

Make sure you don’t put anything that you don’t like to be tracked, particularly financial matters and other strictly confidential matters.  You decide what not to put and to put.

Make sure to protect your free sites with strong passwords so as to prevent hacking.  Also, make sure to log out particularly when you use public computers or other people’s computers (safest is not to use public computers or other people’s computers).

A personal advice.

Re-set, re-adjust, re-start, re-focus, as many times as you need to

As-many-times-as-you-need.-640x640

Reminded me of my slogan: Fall-Falter; Rise- Regain (2012)

https://rojosonfacebooknotes.wordpress.com/2014/03/15/after-a-fall-falter-rise-regain-a-revisit-2014/

https://rojosonfacebooknotes.wordpress.com/category/fall-falter-rise-regain/


In July 31, 2012, I coined this slogan for myself – “Fall-Falter, Rise and Regain!”

This is just one of the slogans that I have been using to help me go on in my life journey, specifically in implementing my life plan.   Some of the other slogans I use are: “It will come to pass!”; “Only do what matters most!”; “Live by the Day, by the Moment”; “You cannot do everything!”; etc.

I admit that I am not perfect.  Sometimes, or most of the times, at the frequency of at least once every 3 days, I usually feel I am going off-track in my life plans, in my daily, weekly, monthly things-t0-do plans.

What I will do is to tell myself, “fall-falter, rise and regain.”  I usually choose special days or occasions within the month to rise and regain.  The days of the month that I usually choose are the first day or 15th day of the month.  Sometimes, I use special occasions to rise and regain, such as Gregorian New Year; Lunar New Year; Easter Sunday; my Birthday; Philippine Independence Day; etc.  I also use beautiful dates to rise and regain, such as October 10; December 12, 2012 (12-12-12); etc.

Just like today, March 15, 2014, this is the middle of the month, I will rise and regain since I already felt as of yesterday that I am falling and faltering in my things-to-do plans.

“Fall-falter, rise and regain” has been very helpful to keep me on track and to help me accomplish my life plan.  Although I only officially coined the slogan in July 31, 2012, I have been practicing the principle since 1970 after my college days in UP Diliman.  At that time, I already started a habit of formulating and writing my life plan on papers.
