First Responder Training Program Batch 14

The Philippines, being considered as the most disaster prone country in the world has learned to cope up with the situation by setting up rescue and EMS groups in their locality to provide immediate life saving interventions. In Metro Manila, this is very evident with the prolification of Barangay-based rescue teams, various civic communications groups and volunteer fire brigades. Inspite of this, these groups have limited sources of life saving information and formal training. Although a number of Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) already are serving their respective EMS and rescue groups in the metropolis, a formal training for First Responders would complement the efforts of various institutions in providing trainings for the enhancement of would be emergency service providers.

Refreshing Pulpy Orange Juice With Real Goodness and No Preservatives

I just drank a bottle of Minute Maid Pulpy. They say it’s got ‘no preservatives added’. Aw, c’mon…It’s bottled juice. Is that even possible? So I thought maybe Minute Maid is choosing the best oranges and they produce freshly squeeze minute maid daily to maintain its freshness and its quality.

I didn’t believe it the first time I heard it’s got no preservatives added.  So I read the ingredients (even the fine print) and everything checked out! It really has NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED!  That means it doesn’t have ingredients that may turn out to be allergens, or worse...carcinogens!  Whew! Now that’s healthy goodness that tastes so good, I feel healtier and worry free for my health every time I drink minute maid, its fresh, healthy and refreshing

So okay, it’s got no preservatives added. That’s really good, right?  Not just because it doesn’t have those icky, harmful ingredients, but it also means that I don't have to buy expensive freshly squeeze orange jucie in the super market or I don't need to pick fresh orange in the market and squeeze oranges at home

So far anyone who still has a hard time believing that Minute Maid has got no preservatives added - meaning it's THAT natural, it's almost like it's plucked straight from the tree, it's just as Mother Nature wanted your orange juice to be, it's got nothing but the good stuff yes, none of those potentially toxic stuff that can harm your brain, kidneys, heart; cause tumors aargh- the list of preservatives' bad effects just go on!!! Anyway, just to prove a point on just how good Minute Maid Pulpy is 'cause it's got NO PRESERVATIVES ADDED, I'm gonna share my pulpy experience with all my friends and share this refreshing experience to everyone by posting this in my blog.

Feels good to know about the real pulpy deal, right? C’mon show me a smile on the comment box, and you might win yourself a Really Pulpy Deal! (That’s a chance to win a Minute Maid gift pack simply by commenting. Sweet! C'mon you just might be picked as the lucky 'commentor'!)

The Faster Way To Ease Clogged Nose

I consider cold as one of the difficult virus to have, cold is just like a trouble maker in our community. If you started to have a cold then flu will follow, head aches due to clogged nose, cough, and many more, they are all one gangsters, that brings difficulties in our life.

Every time I catch a cold, for sure I have this cold for a month. Every now and then I'll suffer from head aches, and most of the time hungry and sleepy due to medicine in take, thus affects my work, won't be able to work properly.and worst of all is having a flu, this time I wont be able to go to work, since my whole body feels weak.

Good thing my doctor prescribe me Drixine Nasal Spray, this gives me a fast relief every time I'm going to use it. unlike other oral decongestant. no more clogged nose thus stopping me to have a head ache, have a clearer way to breath and last is lesser tissue to waste. Because Drixine as my doctor said it controls excessive flow or build up of nasal secretion.

"Drixine Nasal Spray is a nasal decongestant that provides fast relief from clogged nose associated with hay fever, sinusitis, colds and other respiratory allergies in as little as 5 minuets. Drixine contains 0.05% Oxymetazoline a ingredient that was clinically proven to decrease the inflammation and swelling of the nasal passage faster compare to other oral decongestant and allowing air to pass through more freely.

For immediate relief from clogged nose, spray two to three time in into each clogged nostril, morning and evening and not to use more than three days"

• Starts acting in a few minutes
• Reduces swelling in nasal passages
• Controls excessive flow or build up of nasal secretions
• Acts fast for up to 12 hours
