A week has passed since the PNs of St. Augustine school of Nursing had finished their lay out of Nursing Care Plan. It was a success then, many had received such good remarks and many, too, had incurred that shameful point out. Their presentation is simillar that of a BSNurse, but the difference was that they took it in just their freshmen days! Some people commented that was rather too advance and students may not seem to understand well the complexity of the process and in addition to that, educatee are not yet versed in doing Nursing Care Plan,  so the outcome of the panelled presentation is a bit complimentary, since the jury must comprehend that they are just 1st year students, so they must know that this guys are not that knowledgeable with this NCP. So what they did is just really a compliment for the capabilities of the students.

BEING a star means that you need to have equal amounts of talent and personality. The former becomes evident during performances, while the latter is something that comes naturally, on- and off-stage.

This is why veteran beauty expert Tony Galvez believes that in as much as celebrities constantly honing their skills; they should highlight their personalities as well. “Sadly here in our country, we often sell a celebrity’s ‘face’ and not highlight his or her personality,” he says.

Estrada wants complete pardon                              

Former President Joseph Estrada said he would not consider a deal from President Gloria Arroyo, demanding an unconditional pardon from his archrival after his corruption conviction.

In a telephone interview with Agence France-Presse on Wednesday, Estrada again insisted he was innocent and said he would soon file an appeal. Last week, Sandiganbayan sentenced the 70-year-old former president to life in prison on two counts of plunder.

“I will accept an absolute or unconditional pardon,” Estrada said from his villa in Tanay, Rizal, where he is under house arrest.

“I will never admit I am guilty. I have been in detention for six years and went to the court. I could have left the country, but I did not.” Continue reading

Filed under: Movies & Entertainment

he gap between actress Angel Locsin and GMA Network gets wider and uglier. Over the weekend, Angel, who is now in London for a crash course in fashion designing, was given a harsh beating in GMA 7’s showbiz-oriented shows, “Startalk” and “Showbiz Central.”

Angel, who is being branded as an “ingrata” for her impending transfer to ABS-CBN after years of being built up and supported by GMA 7, should have real apprehension about how the public will accept her from hereon.

Google’s YouTube Debuts Copyright Enforcement System

The technology is designed to let content owners prevent YouTube users from uploading copies of their videos, or they can have the choice of monetizing unauthorized uploads with ads.

Seven months ago, Viacom (VIAB) filed a copyright infringement lawsuit demanding $1 billion from Google and YouTube and charging the companies with “brazen disregard” for intellectual property laws and threatening “the economic underpinnings of one of the most important sectors of the United States economy.” On Tuesday, YouTube finally launched a content identification system, YouTube Video Identification, to give copyright owners some measure of control over the presence of their content on the site.The new service requires that content owners upload videos they wish to protect so that a “hash” — a numeric fingerprint of sorts — can be created. That done, content owners will be able to prevent YouTube users from uploading copies of their videos; they will also have the choice of monetizing unauthorized uploads with ads.

“Video Identification goes above and beyond our legal responsibilities,” said David King, YouTube Product Manager, in a blog post. “It will help copyright holders identify their works on YouTube, and choose what they want done with their videos: whether to block, promote, or even — if a copyright holder chooses to license their content to appear on the site — monetize their videos.”

YouTube’s and Google (NSDQ: GOOG)’s legal responsibilities are at issue in Viacom’s copyright lawsuit.

Under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act, Google, as an Internet service provider, escapes liability for copyright infringement by its users if it responds quickly to notifications of copyright infringement.

Viacom claims that Google and YouTube “actively engage in, promote and induce this infringement,” and thus shouldn’t qualify for safe harbor protection.

It’s not yet clear whether YouTube’s new technology will prompt Viacom to drop its copyright claim. When the lawsuit was first filed, pundits observed that the lawsuit was a negotiating tactic to force concessions of some sort from Google.

In April, at the Web 2.0 Expo in San Francisco, Calif., Google CEO Eric Schmidt predicted that as Google rolls out its content protection system, “the issues in Viacom become moot.”

Yet, 64 legal filings later, the case chugs along, with Viacom still apparently set on a $1 billion pay day.

In his post, King pointed out that Google already has a number of content policies and tools in place to help copyright owners. These include account terminations for repeat infringers, technical measures to prevent videos that have been removed from being re-uploaded, a 10-minute limit on the length of uploaded content, an electronic notice and takedown tool, and prominent copyright compliance tips for users.
