There is no silver bullet policy

Hopefully the Philippines fisheries stakeholders will learn from their experiences. And once again, policy shd also take into consideration the life history and realistic fisheries characteristics. There is no such thing as heaven sent, silver bullet, solution to all.

This is an article from entrepreneur magazine and the points the author raised are very useful. I thought of summarizing it but decided not for an appreciation of the whole article.

My soapmaking adventure

I started with soapmaking ten years ago. I immediately got attached to the cold process method and have been into it since. However, the grind of daily job had been a convenient excuse of not putting more spices into the adventure. Until just one day, last year, I know I just need to listen to that calling. Daily work still gets most of my attention but soapmaking has become the first space I go to when I need rest and comforting.

Improving on my recipes from the past, I am now producing vegetables and healthy spices-infused body and hair soaps. I want to be all natural (food-based) ingredients and will pursue that path more and more.

In the photo above, is a turmeric infused soaps, the one in the center is with dried rosemary herb.

Ignorance – a choice

“In the age of information, ignorance is a choice.” – Donny Miller

I choose to be ignorant in matters not so useful to me like gossips, celebrities, politicians, and other issues that I care not at all. Do not bother therefore to ask me anything about those, because you only get a blank stupid face from me.

I choose to be informed in facts and new development relevant to climate change, ocean environment and its resources, land environment and its resources, better management, innovative solutions and technological inventions.
