I guess everyone agrees that Michael Jordan is considered one of the greatest athletes or greatest all time player in the history of basketball and perhaps in the history of sports. Jordan won six titles with the Chicago Bulls. One of those winning seasons is recently featured in the  ESPN documentary The Last Dance.  This is a ten part docuseries starts with  Netflix on July 19, whih covers the Bulls’ historic 1997-8 season. The show that perhaps explains why Michael Jordan is a living legend.

From the estimate of Forbes website, Jordan is worth around $2.1 billion which makes him the first every billion dollar athlete. But many do not know that the multi talented player earned more in his post career compared to the time while he was still playing basketball. Based on Business Insider, he earned a total of $90 million of which $63 million coming from the final two seasons with the Bulls, but he earned around $1.7 billion (before taxes) from corporate partners..

To name a few, Michael was known for his shoe deal with Nike, other than that he also had sponsorhip deals with Gatorade and Hanes. You might also consider that Jordan bought a majority stake in the Charlotte Hornets in 2010 for a grossed-up value of $175 million and he agreed to sell a minority stake in the Hornets in September 2019 in a deal that valued the team at $1.5 billion.

Ice Cream Day In America July 21

National Ice Cream Day! This is what America is celebrating today. A good excuse to dig in to their favorite cool dessert.

History….

Thousands of years ago, people around the world figured out that cold and sweet would be a good a delicious combo. So our love for ice cream goes way back then.

Roman Emperor Nero all the way up to Alexander the Great based on history and even King Solomon was fond of cooled drink at harvest based on some Bible translations.

According to historian, the ancient Chinese were the first to develop a cool, creamy treat that resembles what we enjoy today. In the 1500s, ice cream started to spread through Europe, though at first only aristocrats could afford it.

No one knows for sure when ice cream made its way to the US, but at least a few Founding Fathers were fans.

Thomas Jefferson wrote down 18-step instructions, the first known ice cream recipe recorded by an American. And George Washington reportedly dished out $200 in a single summer to get his frosty fix. In today’s dollars, that’s a lot of money.

When Prohibition banned alcohol sales, Americans turned to ice cream as a fun alternative.

The timing couldn’t have been more perfect, as new technologies made it easier than ever to manufacture and cool ice cream — and send its popularity soaring.

Frosty ice cream was enjoyed by all types of people throughout the country. In fact, it was served to new immigrants on Ellis Island and even US soldiers during World War II.

The Law

President Ronald Reagan was responsible in making the National Ice Cream Day legit.

In 1984, he signed a proclamation that declared July to be National Ice Cream Month. The third Sunday of that month, which this year falls on July 21, became officially known as National Ice Cream Day.

The proclamation — No. 5219, to be exact — describes “a nutritious and wholesome food, enjoyed by over 90 percent of the people in the United States.”

Although we can’t vouch for his stats, it does sound pretty accurate. Right?

Consumption

Today, the average American consumes more than 20 pounds of ice cream each year, according to the International Dairy Foods Association.

If you think that’s a lot, multiply it by 329 million Americans.

Most Popular Flavor

From Neapolitan to chocolate chip cookie dough, there’s no shortage of flavors.

That’s not all. You can also get it nitrogen-blasted, hand-rolled, or charcoal-infused.

Ice cream can even be made without the help of cows. Biotech company Perfect Day debuted a lab-grown dairy ice cream that uses genetic engineering to recreate the proteins usually found in cow’s milk.

Still, the top flavor in the US is vanilla, data from the International Dairy Foods Association.

So, this weekend, don’t think of your sweet tooth as a guilty pleasure, but as a patriotic duty.

Firs aid and Basic Life Support Jan 6-7, 2017




Happy New Year everyone! We are looking forward to another year of teaching people the art of saving lives. Our training this year started with First aid and BLS seminar requested by Don Bosco Technical School for their grade 10 students.

This is actually the second batch or group of grade 10 students, the first batch of which was trained December last year.



The program was done in 2 days and the first day was devoted for objective discussions for first aid ranging from bleeding and wounds to common medical emergencies such as fainting and hypertension.

The 2nd day was for BLS- Basic Life Support discussions including the practical aspects as well demonstration and return demonstration of bandaging and splinting.

 

 

 

 

 

We look forward to another fruitful year for the training and wishing the students more learning to come. We hope that with the training will prepare them for emergencies that hopefully we pray that will never happen. But should it happen, perhaps the training will help them in providing the right care and eventually save a life or limb.

First aid Basic Life Support St. Paul College, Cebu City




Once again we were invited by St. Paul college Foundation Inc. to conduct training for their students. We have been conducting First aid and Basic Life Support training for the school for the last five years for their students who are taking nursing, midwifery, practical nursing, nursing aid.

The school was founded as St. Paul Academy in 1985 by Dr. Lourdes Libres Rosaroso, a distinguished educator known for her varied intellectual prowess and very brilliant academic visions.

St. Paul Academy became Cebu St. Paul College in the School Year 1988-1989. The Two-Year Midwifery Course was then offered with 87 pioneer students. Understanding the demands for a good learning institution in the southern part of Cebu, the founder built bigger and higher buildings in Bulacao which accommodated the increasing number of students and officially made it the main campus.




In 1993, the school was officially recognized as a foundation. Branching out to widen its influences in the academic community, that same year, the school opened another college – the College of Nursing. And in 1995, the High School Department was also opened. Other courses like Bachelor of Science in Computer Science, Bachelor of Science in Criminology and Bachelor in Secondary Education were opened in succeeding years and produced the pioneer graduates in 2001. There were twenty (20) competent and fully-trained graduates of BS Criminology; however, the President discontinued offering the Criminology course due to her intense desire to focus on health care service courses since she was a medical practitioner.

A total of 47 students joined the training, all of them taking practical nursing and in preparation for their assessment exam. The two day training involves discussions on different kinds of emergencies from bleeding, burns, fractures as well as providing care to common emergencies.

Each of them applied bandaging from head to foot. They were then divided into group to apply a splint on fractured extremities.

The training ended with a one on one return demonstration on CPR.
