How to Live Life in the Context of Health – Additional Tagline – March 6, 2019 – ROJoson Facebook

March 6, 2019

I edited the cover photo of my two timelines. I added (How to Live Life in the Context of Health) under Education for Health Development in the Philippines.

Reasons:

From 2019 – 2024 (at least, for the next 5 years), as part of my next 5-year intentional life plan, one of my focused programs or projects is to teach people on how to live life to the fullest and how to live a meaningful life.

Last January 31, 2019 (upon reaching 70 years old), I have shown a clear and live example on how to live life to the fullest and how to live a meaningful life up to age 70 using myself as the prototype.  After that day, starting February 1, 2019, I feel I can now serve as a full-blooded role model and am fully qualified to teach people on how to live life to the fullest and how to live a meaningful life in the context of health.

Also, when I started using the Facebook for educational purpose in June 16, 2011, one of the topics that I intentionally included is Living Life.  In 2014 and 2016, when I made a survey from my Facebook Friends on what topics they wanted me to continue to post, Living Life was on top the list on both years.

2014 Survey

2016 Survey

The topics they liked me to post on my Facebook: Medicine; Hospital Administration; Medical Education; and Life.  The following specific topics they also liked me to include: Breast Wellness; Thyroid Wellness; Hospital Quality Management  System; Hospital Safety Promotion and Disaster Preparedness Program; and Problem-based Learning in Medicine and Surgery.

HOW TO LIVE LIFE IN THE CONTEXT OF HEALTH

This will be operational defined as how to live life in such a way as to 

  • Avoid a premature death as much as possible (before 70 years old – as of 2019);
  • have a physical and mental well-being;
  • have a productive and meaningful life; and
  • have contentment every day and at end of life.

Clutter Management – IPAD

IPAD
As part of my clutter management, last year 2018, I gave this first edition of IPAD (given to me by Gigi Alvarez long time ago- circa 2011) to my nephew and other people for whatever use they may have as it is still functioning except no camera and no word processing. They did not like to use it as it is old na daw. I decided to use it again. I will use it for showing teaching pictures and slides to my patients and students (preceptorials – small group). I used it today to show the pictures and slides to my fraternity brothers in a restaurant gathering. I have to get back to Dropbox to be able to download the pictures and slides to my IPAD.

Hassle to write checks nowadays – ROJoson – February 2019

It is really a hassle to write a bank check nowadays.

We have to conform to the stringent rules set in 2016:

All banks in the Philippines are no longer accepting “checks bearing erasures or alterations on any information on date, name of payee, amount in figures, amount in words, signatures, account name and number and check number.”

With the new ruling, every time I issue a check, I have been very anxious of wrong spelling, erasures, etc. as any violation will cause my check not to be accepted and re-issuing costs P5 per check.  Also, I heard if the check is initially accepted and later rejected, there is a penalty to the issuer.  I heard the amount costs hundreds of pesos.

Most recently,  I encountered another bad experience.

I had a bad experience before in which my issued check was not accepted because of I put a coma after “PLDT” before the “Inc.” and I was told a word., “seven.” had some alteration.

44290426_10155573163155800_3608394010407731200_n

 

Early February, 2019, I issued two checks for Meralco.  My checks were not accepted by both the bank and Meralco.

Here are my two issued checks.  Scrutinize first what were the alleged violations before I tell you the full story.  Don’t look at the erasures on the signatures that I did for purpose of this publication on the Net.  Just look at the other handwritten entries.

checks-0012a

checks-0011a

 

 

Honestly, do you notice any violation? There was no erasure or alterations with correct spelling.

Guess what.

checks-0012ad

checks-0011ab

I was surprised and reacted negatively when I was told the symbol for “and” (see the encircled part in red) was the cause for rejecting my hand-written checks.  They said it looked like the number two (2).  Thus, the rejection.  I was forced to re-issue the two checks, this time using no symbol for “and.” I spelled out the “and.”

 

 

I have been using this symbol for “and” for the past 35 years or so.   It is an accepted symbol for “and.”  I searched the Internet and it shows the acceptable symbols for “and.”

Beside, in the previous checks that I issued with the same symbol for “and,” they were not questioned.

In the 2016 memo of Philippine Clearing House Corporation, there was no mention of non-usage of symbols and abbreviations.

What a hassle really in writing checks nowadays.

At the rate the banks and companies are scrutinizing the written checks, they should be issuing detailed primers to teach people how to write checks.

Facebook Community Standards – ROJoson

FACEBOOK COMMUNITY STANDARDS
THAT HAVE BEEN BEHIND THE BLOCKING OF MY ORIGINAL FACEBOOK ACCOUNT AND WHICH I SHOULD STUDY AND BE ON GUARD FROM HEREON:

14. Adult Nudity and Sexual Activity

Policy Rationale

We restrict the display of nudity or sexual activity because some people in our community may be sensitive to this type of content. Additionally, we default to removing sexual imagery to prevent the sharing of non-consensual or underage content. Restrictions on the display of sexual activity also apply to digitally created content unless it is posted for educational, humorous, or satirical purposes.

Our nudity policies have become more nuanced over time. We understand that nudity can be shared for a variety of reasons, including as a form of protest, to raise awareness about a cause, or for educational or medical reasons. Where such intent is clear, we make allowances for the content. For example, while we restrict some images of female breasts that include the nipple, we allow other images, including those depicting acts of protest, women actively engaged in breast-feeding, and photos of post-mastectomy scarring. We also allow photographs of paintings, sculptures, and other art that depicts nude figures.

Do not post:
Images of real nude adults, where nudity is defined as

-Visible genitalia except in the context of birth giving and after-birth moments or health-related situations (for example, gender confirmation surgery, genitalia self-examination for cancer or disease prevention/assessment)

-Visible anus and/or fully nude close-ups of buttocks unless photoshopped on a public figure

-Uncovered female nipples except in the context of breastfeeding, birth giving and after-birth moments, health-related situations (for example, post-mastectomy, breast cancer awareness or gender confirmation surgery) or an act of protest.

ROJOSON’S NOTES:

I thought my past posts on breast and anti-circumcision issues are within these exceptions but FB still blocks me, three times already.

“Our nudity policies have become more nuanced over time.

At any rate, my resolution on September 15, 2018 is that I will delete all my old posts in my original FACEBOOK account from 2011 to 2018 that I think will go against FB Community Standards. I started yesterday, September 15, 2018. I have deleted about 50 posts already using my Activity Log as a filter (keywords: breast; circumcision). I hope I will not miss anything. I hope FB will not block me again.

ROJ’s Renewal of Resolutions on Computering to Avoid Stressed Eyes – February 8, 2019

After watching the Mu Sigma Phi Sorority’s Webinar on Dry Eye today, February 8, 2019, I was reminded of the resolutions that I made in 2011 and 2012.  I confessed that I have not been fulfilling my resolutions to the letter.

I will start again.  I reviewed my 2011 and 2012 resolutions.

I will not do computering for more than 6 hours a day.   I will keep track of the number of hours.

I will try to apply the 20-20-20 rule: every 20 minutes spent using a screen, I should try to look away at something that is 20 feet away from me for a total of 20 seconds. Or if I forget this, I will close and massage my eyes or look at a distant object for at least one (1) minute, at least once, during each hour of computing.

I will take a break after one hour of computering. I will get up and walk around for at least 5 minutes.

I will use the alarm or timer of my cellphone to remind me of the breaks that I have to take.   

I resolve to do the above starting now for the sake of my eyes!

Family, A Place of Forgiveness – Pope Francis – 2017

FAMILY, A PLACE OF FORGIVENESS
“There is no perfect family. We do not have perfect parents, we are not perfect, we do not marry a perfect person or have perfect children. We have complaints from each other. We disappoint each other. So there is no healthy marriage or healthy family without the exercise of forgiveness.
Forgiveness is vital to our emotional health and spiritual survival. Without forgiveness the family becomes an arena of conflict and a stronghold of hurt. Without forgiveness, the family becomes ill.
Whoever does not forgive does not have peace in the soul nor communion with God.
Those who do not forgive are physically, emotionally and spiritually ill.”
ROJOSON’S NOTES:

YES, MY FAMILY IS NOT PERFECT. AT LEAST UP TO THE PRESENT, 2019, WE MEMBERS OF THE ROJOSON’S FAMILY EXERCISE FORGIVENESS TO EACH OTHER’S IMPERFECTIONS. THANKS, POPE FOR THE HOMILY.
