NASA Replied To This 4th Grader "Guardian of the Galaxy"

At NASA, they take things seriously as their projects are worth million of dollars and involves the best minds in the planet. And they get a lot of mails everyday with applications and inquiries, and sometimes they also get the most interesting letters which would come from youngsters.

Recently, they got a letter from the 4th grader Jack Davis who claims to be the "Guardian of the Galaxy". Other Companies or even Santa Claus would rarely write back just to attend to a request of a child.  But they actually made an official letter replying to Jack Davis looking forward for him visit NASA soon. 

This touching letter maybe taken lightly by many but it would mean so much for this kid as well as his passion for outer space which inspired many to be scientists, engineers and astronauts.

Good job NASA!

4 reasons the ASUS Zenfone is for the explorer in you

Since the release of its first model in the country, the ASUS Zenfones have captured the attention of many Filipinos as a smartphone that goes beyond expectations. From its remarkable front camera to its impressive battery life, the Zenfone is the perfect device for all kinds of adventures. Here are four reasons this little wonder from ASUS is a cut above the rest:

A superior battery life that keeps up with you

Imagine being in the beautiful shores that Bantayan Island, and soaking up all the beauty that it has to offer. You grab your phone to capture this spectacular sight, only to find your battery dying at the last minute. It’s a nightmare, we know. Your bucket list moments shouldn’t be left uncaptured because of poor battery. The Zenfone, with its undeniably impressive battery capacity that can go up to 5,000 mAh (milliamp Hour) mixed with energy-efficient processors, knows this struggle. Now you can keep on shooting your picture-perfect adventures, and even keep up with your day-to-day activities such as surfing the web, playing mobile games, or just checking your social media accounts!

Why Is TV Not Showing Science-Oriented Shows?!

Drama, K-Drama, Variety, and Entertainment- these are the shows that dominate local TV and is watched by majority of the viewing public. I have also been to many of the presscons and launch parties of  TV networks for their upcoming shows but I always find the topic of science and technology missing.

Back in the 90's there was Sineskwela, Beakman's World and many other science-oriented shows which sparked my interest and made me want to be a scientist (inventor) back then. In today's TV, there is probably one or two from the big networks (Matanglawin, Oyayi, and AHA!) but they are only shown once a week compared to the daily shows which are shown just in time for morning kids to catch them.

Though I have nothing against entertainment shows, however it is a wasted opportunity to help the youth in being exposed to the sciences. There were reports and studies on the competitiveness of Filipinos in Science and Technology which the Philippines does not fair well (Check out the worldwide competitive ranking report by the DOST and PH Schools performance to the world stage). What we excel on nowadays are social media engagement, political and social ramblings, and a growing internet population with high demands for mobile connectivity. But Science was probably the option of many as we may look at it as "too intellectual" or "para sa mayaman lang yan".
