/ No Comments
In today’s technology computers plays an important role in our daily life whether it’s for personal use or for business purposes? But if your computer you used is giving you trouble in their performances like slow performances, too much log, too much error or a sudden shutdown in your desktop or laptop? Maybe it’s time to fix or installed a newly and clean installation of operating system.


There are several options of computer operating system that are now used in today’s technology, you can either choose Windows XP, Mac OS, Windows 7, Windows 8 or Windows 10? But be sure that your computer is supported by those operating system?

Here’s how to have a clean Installation of newly formatted Desktop or Laptop

1. Select you preferred operating system that you will use and that supports your computer specifications.

2. Go to Bios setup: in this option entering a key or pressing a key tab to enter the bios setup may be different to other brand of computer motherboard? F2 is the most common key tab to enter the bios.

3. Select the proper boot device: If you are using DVD rom, select DVD rom for the first boot device, so that it will read OS disc when you start the format procedure or you can also use USB bootable device.

4. When the setup started press any key to proceed from booting of the Operating System.

5. Upon reaching the disk options, you have an option if you want to create a disk partition? In creating partition you have to divide local disk c, to have local disk d? or simply format local disk c to proceed without partition.

6. Now format the local disk c: In this options you can either choose format quick or format normally.

7. Wait for 30 minutes or so to finish the windows installation

8. After the installation is finish, the windows will open.

9. Now that a new and fresh windows is installed, it’s time to install the necessary driver needed to fully use the computer. For desktop user: VGA, Sounds and Ethernet Driver must be installed and for Laptop user sometimes all drivers are already installed.

10. Now if everything was installed successfully you can check the device manager to see to it if there are error or question mark that show if not? Then your computers driver are all installed properly? But if not kindly check the mark errors and try to resolve it?

11. Now install all the program that you will need for your computer and also avoid installing program that you don’t need? It can also lessen the performances of computer of those unwanted programs.

12. Finally if all set and done as much as possible installed a security program such as Anti-Virus, to prevent virus infection on attacking your computer or you can use Deefreeze to avoid any changes on your computer once you restated the system

These is just my own personal experience on how to format my own personal computers, others setup may be different for some expert on how to format their own computers.

Cavs versus Warriors on MLK Day!

/ No Comments
On Martin Luther King Day, the Golden State Warriors host the Cleveland Cavaliers in their final NBA Regular Season match at Oracle Arena. The warriors are trying to end their 4 consecutive losing skid at the hands of the Cavaliers, while the Cavs are trying to extend their winning streak against the Dubs which dated back at 2015 – 2016 NBA Finals.


The last time that these two teams met when into a controversial officiating by the referee, where Kevin Durant stumble down the floor after Richard Jefferson steps on Durant’s feet that eventually caused the Warriors to lose the game in an exciting down the wire where the Cavaliers prevail.

Currently , both teams are leading their different conferences, the Warriors lead the west in standing with 34 wins and 6 loss, while the Cavs in the east has 29 wins and 10 losses. The Dubs are on a 3 game winning streak while the Cavs finally won a game against the Sacramento Kings after losing back to back games in Utah and Portland.

For the Warriors to win, the reigning 2 time MVP Stephen Curry must step up and shows that he is still the best player in today’s NBA? And Kevin Durant must show from start to finish unlike his very first meeting with the Cavs where Durant fade away in the 4th quarter.

And for the Cavaliers to win, LeBron James must continue his facilitator with his team, efficient 3 point shooting of the team, especially with the new addition of Kyle Korver that match the 3 point shooting of the Warriors and lastly Kyrie Irving presence in the game especially if the game goes down the wire, Irving has been the kryptonite of the Golden State Warriors.

Who do you think will win in their final match in 2016 -2017 NBA Regular Season? Will the Cavaliers extend their win to 5 straight against the Warriors or the Warriors finally beat the Cavs?

Cavaliers small forward Kyle Korver posted 18 Points in a 4 out 6 shooting in the 3 point area helping the Cavs to end their 2 game losing skid in a win against Sacramento Kings 120 – 108 at Golden 1 Center. The Cavs improve their standings to 29 wins and 10 loss maintaining the number 1 spot in the Eastern Conference.


Kyle Korver who debuted in Cavs uniform finally happen at Vivint Smart Home Arena against one of his former team the Utah Jazz, Korver scores only 2 points in a losing team. On his second game the Cavaliers played Portland Trailblazer at Moda Center, Korver scores only 2 points and again in a losing effort.

Finally on his third game with the Cavaliers, the Kyle Korver that we know finally shows up, shooting dead shots and making the right play for him. As expected he will be a great addition to the already a great 3 point shooting team which is currently the second best 3 point shooting in the current 2016 – 2017 NBA Season.

Many sports analyst think that the addition of Kyle Korver with the Cavaliers improved their chances of winning back to back NBA Championship and at the same time Korver has a great resemble to NBA retired and future Hall of Famer Ray Allen, one of the greatest shooter in NBA History. Korver might be the best shooter in Cavs rooster until he finally fit in with the team like he show’s on tonight’s game.

Meanwhile, on January 16 (US Time), Kyle Korver will be tested against Golden State Warrior, he will be a good potential match up against another 3 point shooting team with the likes of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson. The game between the Cavs and GSW could be a potential preview of 2016-2017 NBA Finals Match?

1k SSS Pension Hike Starts on February 2017

/ No Comments
Philippines – President Rodrigo Duterte has finally come to a decision that give all members of Social Security System (SSS) pensioner a monthly increase in their monthly pension amounting to Php 1,000. The long awaited SSS Pension Hike took several controversies and debates but after a long thorough study of the president economic adviser, the decision was finally sealed.


The increase in SSS pension hike will begin next month or February of this year, due to SSS government agency request of 1 month extension of re-computations. So, the good news is starting February 2017 all SSS pensioner will finally receive their Php 1,000 increases in their monthly pensions.

On the other hand, the replacement for SSS pension hike for SSS pensioner is to increase the monthly contribution of all SSS active members that automatically deducted from their salaries and being remitted by their employers and including the proportion of employer premiums.

It is remembered that the original pension hike filed in the House of Representative was Php 2,000 during the last administration but eventually denied by the former President Noynoy Aquino due to the concerns that Social Security System might lead to bankruptcy in the near future?

Meanwhile, then Mayor Duterte of Davao City, strongly pushed the SSS pension increase if elected President of the country during the 2016 Philippines National Election Campaign but when elected president it did not immediately push through the said SSS Pension Hike bill and instead the president lowered the said SSS pension hike into Php 1,000 after consulting his economic advisers.

Kyle Korver Joins Cleveland Cavaliers in a Trade Agreement with Atlanta Hawks

/ No Comments
NBA Trade – On January 7, 2017, The Cleveland Cavaliers acquire sharp shooting and 3 point specialist Kyle Korver, from the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for Mike Dunleavy, Mo Williams and a protected future first round pick in the NBA Draft. 

With the addition of Kyle Korver in the Cavaliers team it will strengthen more the perimeter area of the team, especially the 3 point area where the Cavaliers team is already the second best shooting team in the NBA this 2016 – 2017 NBA Season next to number one shooting team Houston Rockets.



Also, Kyle Korver will be a very good replacement to the injured 3 point specialist JR Smith, who suffered a broken thumb and will be out for approximately until March of this year. Korver will be joining fellow 3 point specialist Channing Fry, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, James Jones, Iman Shumpert, Richard Jefferson and even LeBron James, who’s having the best percentage of his career when it comes with 3 point shooting this year.

The 35-year-old and 14th year NBA veteran Klyle Korver, is earning $5.2 million this season in the final year of his current contract, he is averaging 9.5 points per game and shooting 40.9 percent in 3-pointers this year. He holds the best record in 3 point shooting accuracy NBA History and currently ninth place on the all-time list for three-pointers made. Carver was also an All-Star in 2015.

Meanwhile, some NBA sports analyst thinks with the addition of Kyle Korver in the CAVS team will give more chance of beating the Golden State Warriors in a possible third NBA match up for the 2016 - 2017 NBA Championship? Korver’s talent of knocking down threes will be a good matchup against GSW very own three point specialist.

Not that we’re saying that there were some sparks… but…

Make Christmas even merrier with these smartphones

/ No Comments
There’s no denying how important the smartphone has become in our daily lives, but the role it plays has most certainly gone beyond just utility. In an age where online aesthetic is actually an extension of one’s personality, and Instagram, Snapchat, and Facebook are the tools of the trade, a smartphone with good photography features isn’t just an extravagance anymore—it’s a necessity.
This holiday season, it’s time to up your social media game with a smartphone that easily gives you flawless travel photos, OOTD shots, and, of course, selfies—no #vsco needed.


Here are three smartphones that we think should definitely belong on your holiday wishlist:

1. The iPhone 7
The iPhone has been a long-time contender in smartphone photography, and the iPhone 7 boasts a faster 12 megapixel lens with an aperture of f/1.8. It also offers optical image stabilization, which when combined with the faster lens, gives you clear pictures in low light—perfect for capturing moments from concerts or spontaneous midnight road trips.
Apple’s claims of improved battery life in the iPhone 7 versus the iPhone 6 isn’t as noticeable, but with the inclusion of the A10 Fusion Chip, the iPhone 7 is lightning fast—meaning you can take pictures and navigate between your social media apps with ease. Also, it charges relatively quickly.
The iPhone 7 is available in 4.7 inch models, and comes in Apple’s signature silver, gold, and rose gold, as well as a stunning, new black matte finish.
Apple’s after-sales service is generally well-recommended. Although taking units to Apple’s service centers may require a bit of your time, they go so far as giving you temporary units while yours gets fixed. For more information, you can call their customer support hotline at 1-800-1441-0234 or 1-800-8908-8277.

The Huawei P9 is known for its defined bokeh feature and crisp monochrome setting. Likewise, its focus and capacity for flare effects make it a good camera for vivid color representation and low-light shooting.

Smaller than the iPhone 7, the Huawei P9 comes in classic metallic colors—haze gold, ceramic white, and titanium grey.
Huawei’s after-sales service challenges the norm by offering courier services.
