Luck for Nurses who took NLE last December 07’

Kung Hei Fat Choi, yes we celebrate a new year again with our Chinese friends. And we welcome the year of the Earth Rat.

Our anxiety grew day by day of when will really be the release of the result for our exams. Anxiety fills my body every time I check my mail and sees a mail from one of those sites which I have subscribed for the results.

But here is the catch now. Do you believe in luck? Then this year is a good luck for all of us because the combination of Earth and Rat is extremely positive when it comes to achieving results. Rats tend to take a lot of risks, while Earth is associated with practicality and stability. Thus, this could create a balance and can lead to good profits, increased productivity and all sorts of accomplishments. And, under Earth's influence there could be fewer scandals (I hope no more Dejavu from the June 06’ Exam) than in other, Rat years.

The Rat is the first sign of the Chinese zodiac and this signifies a start of a new beginning. This year is thus an appropriate time to start new ventures, especially groundbreakings. This includes new ideas, directions, and ways of doing things. It is a time to experiment and put plans into action, as there will be plenty of opportunities to achieve success. Something to consider is that which is begun now is likely to have long term consequences, so choose wisely to enrich your life.

And in relation for us newly takers of the exam, this will signify a new beginning for us after passing the exam. Look at it; it is a time to start new ventures. Whew! Really after passing this exam it will really be a new venture for us all! Although not all will pass but still there will be new directions and ways that could lead you to achieving your dreams.

In spite of the hazards and being sick, we humans will come to the point that we will perform the sick role. No matter what position we stand on our family may it be the bread winner or just a child, we tend to seek care may it be in the hospital, clinic, or in care home

Sexual Intimacy for Longevity of Life

Let me share to you this article that I saw on Yahoo Health that was written by Dr. Maoshing Ni about the how sexual intimacy could enhance longevity of your own life.

From repressive societies to promiscuous indulgences, sex has been a subject of obsession throughout human history, and through many evolutions continues to intrigue us. The act of intercourse becomes much more than mere copulation when enacted in a healthy way. Keep reading to find out how it can affect your health and longevity.

An Active Sex Life for Longevity
Studies have shown that sexually active seniors are the happiest men and women of any age group. And no wonder: healthy sexual intimacy is nature's veritable fountain of youth. It can raise the levels of substances that lengthen your life span, including endorphins, DHEA, and growth hormone.

And it can lower those that shorten it, like the stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol. When sexuality is fulfilling, it not only improves the quality of your years, but also the quantity of your years!

3 Essential Principles to Healthy Sexuality
Chinese medicine has recognized for thousands of years the powerful effect of sexuality on health, spirituality and longevity. Here are the three principals to healthy sexuality:

1. Be aware of your body and needs
Communicate your needs to your partner and do not force the act if it does not feel natural, if you are feeling low-energy, or if conditions are not safe and conducive. Do not force, or use artificial means to arouse yourself if your energy is low or if the conditions are not safe or conducive.

2. Tune into the seasons
Do as the animals do! Observation suggests that animals tend to be more sexually active in the spring and summer
and less so during the autumn and winter. Also, frequency of sex is dependent on your state of health.

3. Be considerate
It is important to gauge your partner's mood, energy, and needs so that you may accommodate them. Satisfaction for both partners is the first step toward reaping the therapeutic benefits of sexuality.

Thanks Dr. Mao for this informative entry that you did.

This is article is good because we are on the month of love and Valentines Day is near. As we know sex is another way that you could show your love and intimacy to partner. But we surely state that you should do this if you are on the right age and responsible enough for the act. Well if you’re not on the right age you could show your love to your lover in other ways. But no sex if your not on your right age. And besides you’re still young you don’t need to think about longevity of your life already. Think of your parents. Enjoy but don’t sin. :)

Update on for Nursing Licensure Exam December 08'

Just this morning I received a text message from a friend of ours. It's about the Nursing Licensure Board Exam result for the December 1 and 2, 2008. The text goes:

"Good morning... According to Ma'am Baldago ... The release of the board exam will not be this week or next week... It may be on the last week of February or first week of March. But definitely, the oathtaking will be on March 17, 2008..."

Ma'am Baldago, by the way is the head of PRC in Iloilo City.

I don't know if this text message is really true. But for those who are longing to see the results (including us) all we have to do is wait and pray. I'll keep you update. Good luck to us!

Big Fuss on the NLE December 07

Many are making false reassurance that the results will be out on this day. Many are dazzled and puzzled to when really the results will come out. But to tell you honestly the fixed dates that the PRC has said was on the last week of January (which is finished already) and first week of February the results will come out. This ain't sure yet thou.

So I have subscribe myself to like more than 4 sites to have a copy of the passers to this exam. So rest assured as the results will come out I'll post it here on our site and its free to download. So stay in tune. And good luck takers (including us mr. sound n' mrs. sound).
