Interconnected,interrelated, interwoven.

That is the Interweb. The Internet.

And within the Interweb, a whole world on its own, resides a distinct world, full of never-ending intertwined lives of people.

 

 

The Blogoshpere is space in the internet where one can connect with another. May it be someone from the west to east connecting with each other, the blogoshpere knows no bounds. The popular blogs, as of late, is what consists of the blogosphere. And the posts that people create, the comments they say, and the shares they make further expands the vast world of the blogosphere. The blogoshpere is a world full of strangers that you can communicate and share anything under the sun with. 

 

The blogosphere connects us all. It is a limitless world.

Starting up with Vic Sotto, Marian Rivera, and Rhyzza Mae Dizon as (most probably) the main cast, and end it with the director of photography, Lee Meily, and director Marlon Rivera, I can only see the bleak future of the Philippine film…

Declining Bats

Curious and Befuddled

The Secret Bataclysm: White Nose Syndrome and Extinction

We need bats; but our bats are dying. In Spring 2006, 6.5 million Little Brown Bats (Myotis lucifugus) lived in the Eastern US, making them America’s most common wild mammal species. Later that same year, thousands of little bodies were discovered strewn outside caves near New Albany, New York. Bats were dying in catastrophic numbers.

Eight years later, millions of bats have died, and still continue to die. Little Brown Bats are now listed as a “threatened species” in multiple states. This is “the most precipitous decline of North American wildlife in recorded history.” And yet, public outcry over the loss of bats has been strangely muted.

What’s the cause of these deaths? Read more here.
