Please don’t have a copying spree :-)

Wikipedia says that: Plagiarism is defined in dictionaries as the “wrongful appropriation,” “close imitation,” or “purloining and publication” of another author‘s “language, thoughts, ideas, or expressions,” and the representation of them as one’s own original work,[1][2] but the notion remains problematic with nebulous boundaries. Wikipedia also says “Content scraping is copying and pasting from websites[59] and blogs.[60]“ Recently, I encountered…

The Pacquiao fight and Facebook

It wasn’t a sure decision until it was announced; and even then people were questioning it. The much anticipated Pacquiao-Marquez fight just ended.  From the looks of it, Marquez dominated the game.  The people watching were not given the usual Pacquiao magic.

And the princes, governors, and captains, and the king’s counsellors, being gathered together, saw these men, upon whose bodies the fire had no power, nor was an hair of their head singed, neither were their coats changed, nor the smell of fire had passed on them. – Daniel 3:27 This was the story of God’s…

Me? Coach of the year?

To God be the glory, honor, power and praise. When the new set of rewards and recognition were introduced to us Manila Service Center, I can’t help but say out loud that I want the Coach of the Year award.  I was thinking it would be good to win that next year. Then, to everyone’s…

On mentors

A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could… I have been seeing this quote in my desk for days now.  The quote is in the Mentoring calendar given to every employee in MSC.  I don’t know why is it in that page but I love…

Putting first things first and personal choices

Being in payroll means that every month is a feat and a challenge for me and my team. Especially in the JAS months where most of the transfers happen. But this August would be especially challenging due to a lot of events happening at work and at the same time my personal life that require…

Meetings pet peeves

In the five years that I have been working, I have had my share of crazy meeting experiences – shouting matches, walk outs, crying moments etc. But this is not going to be about that. I just realized that there are things that can happen in meetings that puts me off at times. I also…
