Vampire Diaries Season Two Finale

May 23, 2011
~Spoiler Alert~
I’m sure many were sad to see Vampire Diaries season two come to an end.  Whatever shall we all do on Thursday evenings this summer?  As expected, the season finale was far from dull and ended with several “twists” that left many of us with our mouths agape.   The return of Vicky and Anna was indeed an exciting and unexpected turn of events.  Also, Stefan’s sacrifice to save Damon and Elijah’s double crossing at the most crucial moment, all these have left us hungry for more Vampire Diaries.   We certainly can’t wait to see what season three will bring and can’t but speculate on several scenarios; For example now that Stefan is gone, does this mean that Elena and Damon will finally develop a more than “friends” relationship?  And now that Anna and Vicky are back would this mean that there is a possibility that aunt Jenna who died may be able to return?  Will Katherine use this opportunity to get back the love of her life, Stefan? Are we going to see his bad-boy-vamp side?  Also, let’s not overlook Caroline’s relationship with Tyler and Matt, which seems to lead to yet another possible love triangle.  Overall, Vampire Diaries season two definitely ended with a big “bang” and certainly hints at a very exciting and interesting season three.  We can’t wait!

 

Rapture or Dilusion?

May 20, 2011
Although many Christians believe the "rapture" will happen one day, with all saved Christians leaving Earth and rising to heaven, no one really knows when this said event will occur.  However, religious broadcaster Harold Camping believes he has pinpointed the exact day through studies and calculations : May 21, 2011.

According to familyradio.com, on Saturday an earthquake will open all graves, allowing believers to be "transformed into glorified spiritual bodies to be forever with God."  The ...

Animated Vampire Stories "Shiki"

May 10, 2011
As we patiently continue to await for some of the upcoming vampire movies to come out, like Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Fright Night, Dark Shadows etc, we were pleasantly surprised to find interesting vampire fare in other avenues.  We happily stumbled across a delectable dark tale about vampires in the manga & anime space and just had to share it.  The story begins with the introduction of Natsuno Yuuki a young teenager who moves away from the city and into a sleepy town called Sotoba.   T...

Blood-thirsty App

May 2, 2011
Ok, I understand that today’s generation is obsessed with getting the latest “apps” for their mobile devices and what not but while some of the apps may appear to be cool and useful there are others that are just outrageous.  Take for instance the latest Google Android app "Dog Wars" -- a game that trains people in dog fighting, a murderous sport connected not just with cruelty to animals but also in some cases to drugs, guns and murder. The app is a virtual training camp for dog fighti...

Royal Wedding: The event of the century

April 28, 2011
I really debated whether to write about what many are hailing to be the event of the century.  The royal wedding will captivate the eyes of millions of people, possibly the most viewers ever in history for any televised event.  When one considers how mobile technology today will facilitate the streaming and distribution outlets, it’s no wonder.  Though this event does not happen every year, I can’t help but wonder if we don’t have better things to do or worry about than watch two young ...

Sick and Tired

April 26, 2011
Today I’m going to rant a little about something that has been irking me for a long time and I just can’t take it anymore.  I’m thinking that there are many out there who would agree that they are sick and tired of seeing celebrities make the news due to exhibiting embarrassing or stupid behavior.  Why I ask you must the media today even waste air time covering this news?  The latest celebrity to make the gossip circuit is a very talented actor that I really respected a lot for a...

Adding Insult To Injury

April 20, 2011
After celebrating its one year anniversary since the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, we can’t help but ask ourselves; Is BP adding insult to injury by failing to meet their obligation to compensate those affected by the spill?  While BP made the world news and was voted the worst company the nation it eventually exited the limelight and continues to run business- as-usual; drilling is still running 24/7.  Apparently, their agreement to set aside a $20 billion compensation fund to be use...

Shared Sacrifice

April 14, 2011
With the looming threat of a government shutdown averted, Americans certainly dodged the bullet last Friday at around 11:30 pm when government finally reached an agreement on the budget.  The fact that a disagreement between both parties on what amounted to .008% of the nation's budget allocated to Planned Parenthood is indeed a scary sign of the obvious dissent in Washington.  While both parties may have felt a sense of victory we can hardly share their enthusiasm as now we have another seri...

The Vampire Diaries Is Back!

April 12, 2011
After what to some of us seemed to be too long a hiatus, finally the first episode of The Vampire Diaries graced the living rooms of countless fans.  Those who were more than ready to take another peek at both Salvatore brothers were definitely not disappointed as once again we were able get a glimpse of Damon Salvatore sans-shirt.  As expected the show picked up right where it left off and quickly gave us a good run through of what to expect during the next episodes.  In this content packed ...

Are patients expecting too much from hospitals?

April 11, 2011
As health care costs continue to rise and our population continues to age; a question that I can’t help to ponder on is will hospitals be able to provide the right care for these patients?  The reason why I’m suddenly wondering about this issue, despite the fact that I’m a healthy individual and have only been to been hospitalized once in my entire life is due to an incident that took place this week.  My best friend’s husband who just turned fifty suffered from appendicitis and had t...
