And yes, men can dance, too.

Dance, as an art form and a concept, does not have gender requirements of who performs on stage. Whether dance is ballet, folk, hip-hop, or modern, both men and women, regardless of their genders and sexual preferences, are just fine.

This narrative is a reminder that no people must judge who can dance on stage. For ballet, both boys and girls, as well as men and women, can dance. Lara Spencer, who is a co-anchor of Good Morning America on ABC, apologizes twice on air for mocking Prince George on his interest in ballet.

Although Lara Spencer makes a public apology on TV, the message of her action is riveting and strange. Her limited perceptions of realities based on cultural and gender biases allow her to provide details so poignant that she faces public uproar. The message is simple. She laughs when she knows that Britain’s Prince George takes his ballet lessons at six years old.

 

Rudolf Nureyev, a Russian male dancer from Irkutsk, Russia, proves to be the presence of a male ballet dancer. Dubbed as the greatest male dancer of all time, Rudolf Nureyev becomes the Lord of the Dance because of his endowing appearance to all-male dancers.

Of course, the comment of Lara Spencer has something to do with gender biases. Many people think that dance is for women. Some of them believe that dancing has specific gender requirements. However, it is ill-advised, as well as inattentive, to consider such a statement. Spencer’s biting commentary seems incorrect, but she expresses her regret she says it.

Moreover, boys and men can show their interests in the dance, too. Regardless of the dance styles and techniques, boys and men can join in the club or league of dancers since dance does not require any specific gender. So, what are you waiting for? Are you still afraid of stereotyping and what-not? No, you do not have to worry about anything. Just dance! Boys can dance, too.

Finally, boys and men can learn to dance, too. They can take lessons from the following schools if they want to learn ballet:

    • Paris Opera Ballet School – France
    • Vaganova School – St Petersburg – Russia
    • The Royal Ballet School – London – England
    • Juilliard School of Dance – New York
    • Sunhwa Arts High School – Seoul – South Korea
    • University of North Carolina School of Arts – Winston-Salem
    • New York University – New York
    • and more…

Snak Hub-Hab: A delightful food network in Tagoloan

It was Monday afternoon in March. The sun could not hold its blistering flames as if it were so mad to cast its rage into the atmosphere. The hotness of the sun made people hide from its damaging ultraviolet rays. I did not know how high the temperature was; however, I was certain that sun rays could burn and darken my skin. And yet, that afternoon made me discover a new place to hang out with friends, family members, and loved ones. 

Then, I waited a few moments at the pharmacy. A few people wearing face masks and face shields stood under the canopies of some stores. While I was hiding from the rays of the sun under the pharmacy building, I took a moment to see where to go next. Eventually, I decided to go to a place to cool me down just a little bit. So, from where I stood, I composed myself and had to get myself ready to go to the private school for children. Indeed, I had to be at the private school so that I could cross the street at the pedestrian lane. To be honest, I did not want to jaywalk.

Out of breath after walking in hot broad daylight, I reached the private school for kids. I could not complain; however, I could hardly breathe due to the use of a face mask and face shield. I was upset. Since there was nothing to do, I tried even harder to follow the COVID-19 protocol.

This time, I had to cross the street. Just as I stepped on the first white mark on the pedestrian lane, a car swerved along the street so fast that I took my steps back. A heavy traffic flow caught much of my attention. As I had to wait for a few minutes to let the traffic subside, I kept thinking about where to go next. At this point, I needed to cross the street.

And yes, I succeeded in crossing the street. I just rolled my eyes to see any signs of food outlets, food stores, and other food channels nearby. I had to look for the best place to stay and sip some cold fruit juices. However, I noticed a distinctive food store a few steps from me. Out of my curiosity, I headed toward the store and swung the door open.

“Hi. I need a cup of hot chocolate and six pieces of ‘siomai,’ please.” I said.

“Okay, Sir. Coming right up!” The person at the food counter replied. I never thought she was the owner.

So, I waited for a few seconds. I rolled my eyes again. I sighted the store from corner to corner and found it a perfect venue to hang out with great people. The store had plenty of customers mostly students and professionals, as well as groups of locals. To tell all my readers about this place appeared to be the best thing I could do. The place has been magic, for me, from the entrance to the counter of the store. The grass-like carpet, or at least I described it that way, was fantastic. It was outstanding. I forgot to ask what that was. I just lost my focus on ordering cold fruit juices due to the venue itself. It was lovely. From the internal decorations to the positions of the chairs and tables, it was like one of the coffee shops in Safwa, Dammam, Saudi Arabia. I knew what I said because I was there. Well, the unique name of the store, too, is Snak Hub-Hab. I did not know the meaning of the name; however, I was sure that the name of the food store did catch my attention.

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your beef shawarma, ice tea, milk tea, fruity shakes, variants of coffee, dim-sum food, siopao and siomai, and more. You can visit the place now as it is easy to get there.

If you are in Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental, you can stop right there Snak Hub-Hab alongside LBC and Goldilocks. Again, Snak Hub-Hab is at Zone 11 National Highway, Tagoloan, Misamis Oriental.

From the Era of Viruses to the Flight to Mars

The world, surely at present, is in shock. To consider the longstanding COVID-19 pandemic, we are certain that we get panicked. We are in danger of acquiring, time and again, some diseases, such as Ebola, smallpox, measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, shingles, hepatitis, herpes, and cold sores, polio, rabies, and Hanta fever that can affect us. The recurrence of African swine fever (ASF) and variants of viruses, as well, generates horrors in the world. It even leaves us to suffer from extreme poverty and what-not. As this era of viruses destroys the economy, we only face the dangers that we ourselves master of our own extinction. Or else, we force ourselves to leave Earth.  

Viruses are real. They come from these mysterious elements that surely affect us. If no people create and design the viruses, then many of us think that these viruses occur due to extreme ecological conditions, such as air pollution and other accumulated toxic materials from the inner and outer space. We know of the various factories, such as petroleum, plastic, and others that endanger lives. However, we do not take precautionary measures. We only speculate the reasons behind this economic and political melodrama. What we know is that air pollution, as well as other ecological problems, is present. The contributing factors of air pollution, such as airplanes, cars, and trains, as well as factories, prove to be the sources of air pollution. Of course, we do not want to be scientific; however, we can say that air pollution because of airplanes, cars, and trains is feasible. So, viruses exist elsewhere.

However, this statement is only an opinion. The idea of this writing does not wish to influence readers. It only asks other factors that contribute to the presence of the viruses, such as COVID-19 and ASF. Besides, numerous people grow agitated at this time due to the emergence of different viruses elsewhere one after another. As the growth and the problem of the viruses continue to expand, are we ready to depart, move, and take some month-long trips to Mars?

Conversely, billionaire Elon Musk serves as the only person who wants to save humanity from the impending destruction. He breaks the limits of science and technology and works hard to cross the edges and rims of human intelligence. As he spearheads TESLA, SpaceX, and Boring Company, he only proves that he can preserve humanity at best while leaving those who cannot afford to make trips to Mars.

Furthermore, people may ask why the viruses have become prominent now and why Elon Musk has announced his plan to go to Mars in 2024. It may be a coincidence though to think; however, it proves a point that the world is not safe anymore. Are people safe from deceit, greed, and lawlessness? Of course, people are not safe anymore. In other words, the world is no longer safe from corruption, dishonesty, falsehood, greed, political drama, and propaganda.

In the end, people need to consider the possibilities of change. Are all these things that are happening now real? Are COVID-19, ASF, and more tangible than we think? People die of hunger and other health complications because they are afraid of going to hospitals and malls. How close are we or how far are we from the truth? We just do not know. What we do not know is that someone must take a stand to solve these problems. We need a more realistic solution – answer without lies. If people continue to lie for the sake of their personal interests and political agenda, we better take some excursions to Mars.

Duka Bay Resort: A love to find in Misamis Oriental

Life, as it seems, will never be the same again. It is sad to say that we can never turn back times.

Maka-Survive Ba ang Minyo nga Lalaki sa Sweldo Nga ₱365.00 A Day?

Sakto na ba ang ₱365.00 na sweldo kada adlaw sa Region 10 sa Mindanao, Philippines? Is ₱365.00 enough for a married man to feed himself and his family? Is it enough for him to survive? To answer these questions, it is proper to consider discussing this paralysis of dreams and reviewing how a married man with one child struggles to survive daily.

Ang Kita Nga 365.00

And yes, you are a married man, and you do have a job. You earn ₱365.00 a day. However, you cannot feed your wife and your daughter as you struggle to feed them. This condition is what you call extreme poverty. Di ba kulang siya ang 365?. Nakita na ba kini sa gobyerno? Ug sa karon nga pandemic, unsa na kaha ang kaonon ani nga mga tao. Ang kilo sa karneng baboy ay ₱400.00; sa karneng manok ay ₱200.00; sa karneng baka ay ₱350.00. Daw bi, unsa na ba ang presyo sa mga gulay? Let us see sa Table 1 kung unsa ang magasto sa usa ka amahan sa pamilya. Don’t mention that he has to go on a diet or that he has to tighten his meal expenses a bit. Ang ₱25.00 nga sud-an sa merkado ay usa lang ka gulay ug gamay kaayong hiwa sa karne.

Dawbi Kung Walay Trabaho

Ang mga walay trabaho, mag-nganga sila. Daw bi ang kita sa uban nga ₱25.00 a day? Kausa na lang lugar sila mukaon. Okay lang lugar na nimo nga sila gigutom, tapos daghan imong kwarta sa graft and corruption… Dili na lang nako i-mention ang ahensya kay dilikado. Dili ko sure kung kinsa ang gabuhat sa sakto. Tarong man kuno pud sila?

Basta, don’t blame those poor Filipino people. Blame those people nga nadato ug kalit ug daghan ang mga sakyanan sa easy money lang nga gikan sa mga modus operandi nila and those politicians nga nakadawat daw ug Standard Operating Procedure (SOP). Unsa kaha ning SOP? Basta, don’t blame the poor people. Basin wala siguro sila naabot sa programa sa family planning. Kung naabot man, unsay nahitabo kaha sa implementasyon. So, wala silay knowledge sa birth control. Kung mutukar ilang gana; mag-kuan pud na sila. Mao pud managhan sila. Aduna bay programa ang gobyerno para ana. I don’t know. As well, I don’t want to comment sa implementation sa family planning program.

Andito na tayo. We are here to witness the outcome of the actions of those people who do so and so and such and such. Daghan ang kwarta sa gobyerno. Daghan ang kwarta sa mga ahensya. Dili na lang ko mag-mention ug mga ahensya. Basta, the government has plenty of financial resources.

Unsay Sakto Lang Na Sweldo

Sana ang basic pay sa lahat ng rehiyon ay dapat nasa ₱1,000.00. Don’t sue me ha. Opinion ko lang ito. Then, calculate ₱1,000.00 a day times 26 days kasi may day off for one month salary. A married man can have ₱26,000.00. Aba, parang okay na ito. Hindi pa kasi kasali sa gastusin ang education, healthcare and medicine, fare and snacks sa mga, at iba. Kunti pa nga ito; pero parang medyo nakakakain na ng tama ang isang pamilya. Iyong mga professionals, syempre kikita sila ng malaki ng kaunti.

Sa huli, sa sobrang mahal ng bilihin at sa daming babayarin, it became a paralysis of dreams. Hindi “Build, Build, and Build” ang nangyayari, parang “Bill, Bill, and Bill” na ang dating.

Canoeing and Kayaking at Dakak Park and Beach Resort

Dakak Park and Beach Resort, positioned in the southern part of the Philippines, gives a new record as one of the tourist attractions and destinations in the country. Surrounded by several mountains in its west, Dakak Park and Beach Resort can charm visitors from all walks of life. It fascinates guests and visitors and gives them some sense of excitement and fun.

At Dakak Park and Beach Resort, guests and visitors can canoe or kayak. What are these sports by the way? Well, canoeing makes use of an open vessel. The paddler who sits or kneels inside the canoe will use a single-bladed paddle. He or she uses the paddle to push the craft through the water. Conversely, the paddler in kayaking makes use of an enclosed vessel. The paddler, who sits inside the kayak with extended legs, makes use of a double-bladed paddle.

Moreover, paddlers prefer canoeing more than kayaking. Generally, canoes are more stable than kayaks. It happens because of the width of the vessel. Paddlers say that they find it easier to enter and exit in the vessels in canoeing than they do in kayaking. As well, paddlers can load many stuff materials in canoeing compared to kayaking. In other words, they can bring several gears. Finally, paddlers can watch pleasant views of their surroundings while canoeing better than kayaking.

Indeed, the main difference between kayaking and canoeing falls under the use of the paddle. The paddler is canoeing uses a single-bladed paddle; whereas, the paddler in kayaking uses a double-bladed paddle. Of course, the obvious difference between the two sports falls on the paddling technique.
