Health Care professionals

I guess ¼ of our clan have graduated with a course in line with medicine. Mom and older sis are midwives, my other sis a nurse and I graduated as Medical Technology. I also have aunts that are doctors, nurses and other cousins are nurses as well. Some have become very successful in their chosen career and are still working in big hospitals here, Middle East and in the US. An aunt of mine even became the head of a cancer department in a hospital in the US and just recently she’s also giving lectures and seminars to medical professionals.

There’s a great demand of medical professionals anywhere, for giving medical care to patients are a must. There are various fields that you can opt to choose, nursing, midwifery, doctor of medicine, medical technology, x-ray tech, and lots more. If you love giving special care to patients and wanted to expand your learning in the medical field, getting a medical course can fulfill your passion. I also remember there’s a number of caregivers that are needed on elderly homes and some of my relatives took a course just to be qualified on that field.

Hospitals and other medical care facilities will always be in need of medical staff and to augment that need.

After giving my dog Sophie a bath this morning, I lso gave our living room a little clean up since we had a small pre-birthday celebration of my mom yesterday. It was a lot of fun but left the house a little bit messy. While during some photo albums on the center table, my eyes were glued to my college photos where we are wearing our white medical uniforms with our matching custom name tags, I can't help but to reminisce my college days.

Almost all of my friends are already doctors now while others are still in the medical field like Med. Tech, Medical representative and more. I’m on a different field right now and there are times that I’m wishing I’m working at the laboratory like them so that I can use the profession that I used to love. But, things and priorities change so I’m also happy on where I am now.

3-Day Mall Wide Sale at Malls Oct. 14-16

The 3-Day sale at malls particularly at SM and Robinson's Department stores started yesterday till Sunday (16th). I was there yesterday and I have witnessed how people became crazy over the huge sale that many stores are offering. How can you not resist items with 10 and up to 70% off on most of the items. I saw some women hoarding some stuff that were on sale and I bet they'll give them as presents this Christmas.

Every time there is a 3-day sale at malls esp. at the big ones, people hurry themselves to go to the malls to take advantage of the sale items. Since it is also payday, there's no wonder why there are tons of shoppers came in. I end up just buying a Tefal frying pan that has only 10% off. I did stroll different malls but bought nothing as I don;t want to buy only on impulse. Thankfully, I was able to control myself from buying shoes or bags that I don't actually need anymore.

Speaking of discounts, not only at the local malls have sale but also online. Many have been looking forward to get good deals at their fave online stores as well for they have January Clearance sale, end of season sale or holiday sale as well. Online is another great venue where we can get good discounts.

Anyway, after having experienced the mall wide sale at Megamall yesterday, I don’t think I will come shopping again if there is a sale. The lines to the counters are just way too crazy. lol

79 soon

It's going to be another fun-filled weekend for all of us come next week for my mom will be celebrating her 79th birthday. Her birthday on Oct. 18th will fall on a Tuesday but we're having a small family celebration on the 16th (Sunday) so that everyone will be there ( I hope). For sure, there'll be bbq since we all love pork and chicken barbeque plus some other dishes.

Actually, I'll be talking to my sister in laws to know what menu we'll be having. For sure, our all time favorite buko fruit salad will be served plus I'll be ordering cake for my mom. It's going to be just a family affair for we just intend of having a big party when she'll turn 80 next year in God's grace. One thing is for sure, she'll be receiving lots of greetings from all of us and that what matters most.

I’m just wishing and praying for mom’s good health because she’s been under the weather lately. Her gallstones still need to be addressed and we all hope that medicines can dissolve those stones so that surgery will not be done.

It’s Never Too Early to Start Thinking About Christmas

Wow, I just learned that it's only 78 more days and it's gonna be Christmas once again! It's just like a month ago when we celebrated it, time sure flies so fast. It may sound weird for some but here in our neck of the woods, Christmas starts really early. What I mean is that, radio play Christmas songs, TV shows having their countdown and Christmas decors already in their studios as soon as the BER months begin in September. Some malls have already started bridging out their Christmas stuff that will be for sale and that w ill definitely entice people to buy their Christmas gifts or to decorate their homes early too.

Personally, we decorate around 1st week of December and this year I planned on changing the color theme of our Christmas tree. It was orange and gold last year and I'm not sure if I'll go for violet and silver this year.

Mom and I will also get new Christmas lights that we'll install in our garage and we are thinking of getting solar type. A friend of mine had it outdoors and we are encouraged to buy as we don't even need to light them each night for they will light on it's on. Sis who is in Sydney even mentioned to us that she'll send us some. She found a lot of Solar christmas lights over at Deals Direct's website and if she can get them at a good deal, she'll include them at the big box she'll send to us soon. About 2 years ago, she sent us a tall Christmas tree and heaps of Christmas decors because after the holidays, many shops there put all the Christmas items at half to 70% off. My sis definitely hoard some and just saved them for the next holiday season. A good chance to save.

I’m sure many will be excited and looking forward for Christmas for it is the time to give and share our blessings.

Hello October!

Wow, time really flies so very fast and the 1st week of Oct. is so to end. I'm looking forward to my mini-vacation soon with some friends and I'm just praying that there;s no typhoon on that time so I can enjoy. I need a break from work and life's busy life and a vacation is a good reward or gift to myself.

There are so many things that I’m looking forward till the end of this year and one of those is the much awaited wedding of my distant cousin come early next year. I could feel her excitement as the wedding day nears. In fact, they are already on their preparation stage like looking for wedding rings,  bridal rings, gown, souvenirs, photographer and other wedding stuff.

Right now, I hope October will be a good one for me work and health wise.

How OSHA trainings can increase your ability to get a job

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) was created under the United States Department of Labor in 1970. The objective of this government agency was to provide regulations that would prevent work-related illnesses, injuries and other occupational fatalities. These measures would be enforced on the concerned businesses requiring them to follow predefined standards for workplace health and safety.

They also conduct sever al osha training programs and safety training programs for the workers of general and construction companies.

Employers will be able to save a lot of money in the long run if they over continuous OSHA training programs to their employees. If management creates an atmosphere of safety-minded safety conscious workers and workplace environments, their business will run more smoothly and there will be fewer claims to liabilities and fatalities.
OSHA safety training seminars and programs teach safety measures for the workers that are easy to understand. It is open for all and it does not need any pre requisites. The people who are not working with construction or general company can also take the training and help others by the skills and techniques of safety at work.

Here are some of the advantages of undergoing OSHA trainings:

• Workers are made aware of the safety procedures that need to be practiced at the workplace.
• Workers are taught ways to prevent any hazardous conditions in the workplace.
• Essentially, these training programs save the workers’ lives!
• OSHA safety also helps the employers and the workplace industry as it reduces extra expenses that occur from hazards like accidents, injuries and chemical related illness.
• OSHA safety training enhances the environment of the working site.

If you are looking into getting employed, getting certification from a specific OSHA safety training program (example: OSHA forklift certification training course) will increase your chances in getting a job or being chosen among possible job candidates. Employers would no longer need to orient you on the safety practices and the operations of their machinery. To get OSHA certification, you must first pass the level one exam and receive a temporary OSHA Card. This card can be used when you apply for jobs. Getting certified is similar to most other workplace training courses and involves formal education through videos and written materials, hands-on training and testing of both theoretical and practical knowledge. In the OSHA forklift certification training course, separate certification is available for sit-down and stand-up forklifts. Certification must be renewed every two years.

Employers also do not need to worry about the time it will take to complete a course since OSHA training courses are either 10 or 30 hours long, and there are companies like ClickSafety Inc. who conducts online classes. By doing this course online, you enjoy the additional advantages of learning from the convenience of your own home at a time that is perfect for you.
Why is it important to take part in OSHA Training Courses:
The OSHA guidelines tackled in these programs are applicable under all working conditions. For instance, following OSHA guidelines in working conditions that require the use of heavy duty equipment and machines will help the employees work more efficiently under strenuous conditions. Once qualified, all employees will have the best knowledge to operate their machinery. This will also help develop a sense of leadership as all of them will have the full knowledge to handle any adverse situation. With the training and information from these courses, employees are provided with a sense of awareness and understanding, which in turn will help them lead safer working hours. When employers give and encourage these courses to their employees, it proves their commitment towards safety in their workplace.
