Safe Spaces: Why Safety Isn't Just About Security in Schools

What do we really talk about when we talk about safety in schools? This is a question that lingers year after year as we take part in ensuring that our children grow up as young learners equipped for the challenges of the 21st century. From the school grounds to the playground equipment and student
transportation vehicles, every detail of  school's environment must be well-planned and established with the student community's safety in mind. Open spaces that increase and ease how students go from one point to another must be planned out with everyone in mind, including those with special needs like ramps and elevators for those on wheelchairs.

Far too often, safety is associated with the physical aspects, such, at certain points, we tend to
forget that the modern age has brought about new dangers for our children that we might not
expect. Bullying among school age children, for instance, has been a problem in school
settings, given the imbalance in terms of power relationships between students, and even
among teachers.

Cebuana Lhuillier Event: A Lovely Laughternoon with Mr. Winston Maxino and Pinoy Laughter Yogini Paolo Martin Trinidad


Laughternoon with Cebuana Lhuillier: An Inspiring Word from the Very First Happiest Pinoy Mr. Winston Maxino and the Benefits of Pinoy Laughter Yoga.

The Search for the Happiest Pinoy 2019  is on, and its intimate press conference I recently attended cannot be more inspiring and timely, as I have been doing a rather crazy amount of juggling lately. Work, chores, preparations for my son's upcoming a whole week of graduation rehearsals, the graduation itself, an awards banquet, and a very long checklist to tick off for his Philippine Science enrollment for Grade 7.

Cebuana Lhuillier's Happiest Pinoy Search will always be dear to my heart. It was in 2012 that The Grasyas was born. Coined from the room where I stayed with long time blogging mommy friends, Iris Acosta of, Iris Pulga of and Mauie Flores of stayed and where friendship beyond blogging was officially born!

How to Clean Your System for a Urine Drug Test


Hands, One, Medicinal Products, Medication, Drug

You might be searching the internet because you need to pass an upcoming drug test. Then, this article will guide you on what you can do especially if you are going to undergo a urine drug test.

How Do You Pass a Drug Test?

If you read the articles on the internet, you may have to do some things such as exercise regularly, eat fruits and vegetables, stop smoking weed, drink plenty of fluids, and a lot of other homemade solutions. These methods can detoxify your body if your drug test is 30 days away. However, if you are in a rush and want to know how to clean your system from drugs as soon as possible, then some of the methods will not work.

Flush Toxins in 24 Hours?

If you just have to live a healthy lifestyle for the next 24 hours, then the bad news is it’s not enough to flush out marijuana or cocaine from your system. You might have read tons of websites claiming that the drugs can leave your system in 24 hours if you drink their products.

Some of the Homemade Solutions That Can’t Flush Toxins in 24 Hours

1. Niacin
2. Diuretics
3. Gallons of Water
4. Creatine Pills
5. Certo Drugs
6. Vitamin B2 or B12 Only
7. Cranberry Juice
8. Vinegar
9. Zinc

A Word about Some of the Home Remedies

Food, Vinegar, Eat, Fruit, Healthy, Vitamins, Spicy

If you rely on cranberry juice to pass a drug test, then you are putting yourself at risk. Although cranberry has a lot of antioxidants and is a natural diuretic, it will still need at least one month for the entire THC to be flushed out from your system. Cranberry juice alone won’t make your entire system clean from drugs. You have to factor in daily exercise, a balanced diet, and quitting marijuana for at least a month. You can read more information about cranberry juice in this link here.

When it comes to vinegar, this homemade remedy can lower the pH levels of your urine. The test administrator might think that you have tampered with your urine and you might have to produce another sample under a watchful eye. In addition to this, drinking vinegar can give you unnecessary diarrhea if you are not careful.

Niacin has produced a lot of online buzzes because it is said to detoxify the liver from THC. However, there are not enough studies to support these claims. Therefore, relying on niacin to pass a drug test is a very risky business. Niacin does not necessarily break down the fat cells which contain THC metabolites. The primary job of niacin is to break down the fat that enters your body through the food that you eat.

The truth is that there’s no magic pill that can clean the toxins from your body in 24 hours. Marijuana contains a crystalline compound called Tetrahydrocannabinol or THC which is fat-soluble. This means the THC metabolites will combine with the fat from your body. You can remove the fats through excess sweating from exercise or through your urine. However, this is not advisable if you have a drug test coming up in 24 hours.

Your body will work at a certain rate and squeezing the toxins from your kidneys, cells, and liver is next to impossible. It is very possible to speed things up. However, if you have less than 7 days, you need something stronger. The detoxification process takes about 14 days. It can be longer if you are a heavy marijuana user.

You can also read a lot of online articles why zinc, Certo, a gallon of water, creatine pills, Vitamin B12 or B2, and diuretics alone won’t help you pass a drug test. What you need is an alternative that can give you a 100% guarantee that you will pass.

How Long Does Marijuana Stay in Your Body?

Generally, the cannabis’ detection time can be unpredictable and diverse. You can read more about cannabis on this website: There are certain factors that will determine how fast the THC levels are flushed from your system. These factors can include your overall health, your body type, weight, metabolism, the frequency of use, drug tolerance, and your diet.

The Following are the Detection Times Based on the Frequency of Your Weed Usage

    1 Time Use – Detectable for 5 to 8 Days
    2-4 Times a Month – Detectable for 11 to 18 Days
    2-4 Times a Week – Detectable for 23 to 35 Days
    5-6 Times a Week – Detectable for 33 to 48 Days
    7 Days a Week – Detectable for 49 to 63 Days

So, if you have taken weed in the past 24 hours, the great news is that there are stronger detox formulas that can help you pass your urine drug test. You can use a permanent detoxification program such as cleansing pills. These pills will enable you to remove weed from your system as fast as possible.

Other Alternatives

There are products in the market such as Toxin Rid and many other alternatives that can help you flush out THC metabolites from your system. You can also buy a detox kit to and make sample laboratory tests at home. This way, you will know if you will have a good idea of the results of the drug test after you take the detox formula. When it comes to Toxin Rid, you will get the benefits of three components such as the pre-rid capsules, detox liquid and dietary fiber that are very beneficial to your body. The capsules alone can contain herbs, vitamins, minerals, electrolytes, and diuretics that are strong enough to dilute the THC metabolites from your system.

If you want to know more information about how you can get hold of effective products that will enable you to pass a drug test, you just have to go to the right website. You can read a lot of positive reviews about strong detoxifying products that can make you healthier in the long run. You won’t have to risk going to jail or losing the job of your dreams because you can pass your test through these alternatives.

Cebuana Lhuillier Launches Micro Savings Product


Cebuana Lhuillier seeks financial inclusion through Micro Savings. 

Having worked in a financial institution for a few years, I know for a fact that it is not exactly easy to open a bank account for the regular Juan. Not only will you be asked for a minimum of two valid IDs, often times a minimum of P2,000 (for passbook account) is also asked for initial deposit and just about the same maintaining balance, for the most part. This truth makes it almost impossible for the masses to afford opening a savings account. Who would want to open an supposed savings account of which balance be eaten up by "below maintaining balance" charges?

And we know how it is when a person does not have a savings account, hand-to-mouth existence is just about the default. Truth be told, if a working person is able to save even just a minimum amount on a constant basis, it will be easier to be more prudent with one's resources, paving the way towards becoming wiser stewards of money.

The Reason Why Comfortable Helmets Are Safer

In most countries, you are required to wear a motorcycle helmet when you are taking a ride on a motorcycle. Wearing a helmet while riding a motorcycle increases your chance of survival in case there is an accident. Wearing a helmet can also greatly reduce the risk of fatal head injury that could lead to permanent injury to the brain or life threatening.

Accident statistics have shown that helmets do save lives. A large percent of motorists involved in fatal motorcycle accidents where those found not wearing helmets. Seasoned motorists know the importance of wearing a helmet whenever they are on their rides. It should be the responsibility of every motorist to wear a helmet whether it is mandatory or not in their country to protect their own lives. The helmets should meet the safety standards required by the Department of Transportation.

When a motorcyclist is involved in an accident, there is nothing to shield or protect his or her head from the impact of the fall or crash. Even a minor knock or blow on the head could cause concussion or a traumatic brain injury, resulting in permanent head injuries or even death. Wearing a helmet also helps to protect injuries to the eyes, teeth, and face. Helmets can protect you from flying particles such as dust particles, gravels, bugs, and other objects you could come in contact with while on your rides.
