All these years, I have never joined any social networking sites. Only for the past 3 to 4 months, I step into this virtual world and discovered there are so many different social networking sites. Initially I thought social networking site is for people to make friends. But after involves deeper, I found that people using this as a marketing & promotion tools. It awesome!!! Guess the marketing world already conquer onto the social networking sites.

The first social networking site I joined is FACEBOOK. I used to play all kind of cool & fun applications with my friends and challenging each others scored.

 Then one day, during my search. I discovered another social networking site called Yuwie. I can’t believe what I read… this social site paid their member for using the site. Wow… Social Networking site that PAID?  Okay, will try it out to see how true it is. To my surprise, my 1st month earning shown I have $0.19. That awesome!!! I didn’t do much in the 1st month and I got paid by chating with my friends. Wow! Another bonus point to add is that people in yuwie are very friendly, they loves to help each others.

I hate to hear the news on gun violence in US schools again.

Although am not staying in US, but this on-going gun shootings really annoys me. Take a look at the history of gun violence in US schools below (extracted from BBC news website):

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/americas/4371403.stm:
 

The BBC News website charts the history of gun violence in US schools.

  • December 1997: Fourteen-year-old boy kills three students in Kentucky
  • October 1997: Sixteen-year-old boy stabs mother, then shoots dead two students at school in Mississippi, injuring several others. 

Plus the recent gun violence in NIU really triggers my nerves and anger.

I just wonder what wrong with our society now.

What had happened to all these school children now a day, unable to control their emotion (EQ) and stress level?

All these are innocent kids & children. Why such a sad tragedy happened on them?

Do welcome to write your comment, thought and suggestion on how to stop the US School shootings. One of my US friend is going to compile all these good suggestions and submit a proposal to US on how to stop this tradegy.

If you would like to send your prayer to those suffer from the tradegy, you may send your prayer here. Thank You. 

 God bless! Take good care of your children and family.



GOD BLESS!
