USING MATHEMATICS IN OUR EVERYDAY LIFE




I wonder on how we can apply all those we have learned in high school and college about mathematics especially algebra and trigonometry.

One of the good things in the country like Philippines is that as a customer in a public market you can haggle with the price down for some commodities being sold by the vendors. So aside from having a low cost of living in the said country you could still save money using your skills in making the vendor broke! LOL!

Consider the scenario on how you can apply algebra and trigonometry:

In public market:

Vendor: How many apple?

John: Give me 3x-5 when x=6

Vendor: So, here are your 13 apples sir!

John: How much all?

Vendor: It’s only 5sin90 a piece.

John: Please convert it using arc tangent.

Vendor: I just finished high school I can’t carry it. Just use 5tan45 instead then apply reduction formula.

John: Ok no problem, here’s my payment (x?2-4x+3)/sin3x where x=7, keep the change!

My Little Dudu Bear!

They were saying that teddy bears and dolls are really not meant for guys and my mama told me that they're not toys for the big boys!

When I was young I used to play toy guns but recently I developed my interest with teddy bears. I must admit that I am one of the straight guys and my hanging question is .... anybody here who has an interest with stuffed toys like me especially guys? Something wrong with me?


One of my favorite bears is Little Dudu. Actually I have a blog about this cute little girl and you can follow a link here to see her company.


The issue here is not anymore about gender it's about my age, I'm 31 and I guess I am too old for this "stuffed"!

Please do not make fun of the picture that's not Taylor Lautner neither Jacob Black in New Moon Saga!

Year of the Tiger No More!

I do not think 2010 is the year for Tiger Woods after admitting an illicit affair with another woman. He has lost billions of dollar endorsements which comparatively higher than what he’s getting from his profession. This is the lost of the Tiger but I do not mean the lost in opportunities as one of the highest-paid commercial endorsers of our time but rather the lost of his integrity as a respected player. What can you ask for if you have a life like a tiger? Sometimes I would like to make myself believe from the saying, “For every man’s failure there’s a woman behind”. In my own understanding it is not really about the woman. The term woman symbolizes one’s weakest part that could affect to reach our success in life so ladies out there do not get mad at me. Certainly Tiger has achieved his success in golf but not in relationship.

He is just a man after all and he is not a saint to be excused from getting horny to other woman. Everybody deserves a second chance to have one more time affair, I mean a chance to recover where he slipped. I really believe that those lucky bastard professionals (not in golf but in extramarital relationship) might be disappointed why Tiger admits his extra-curricular activities. I have a friend telling me that if he was in the shoes of Tiger he will never tell the truth even if they crush his balls. But really, what I admire from Tiger is the admittance of his transgressions. You cannot hide the truth even a smelly fish you placed into a container surrounded by concrete cement it will be discovered eventually. So those hubbies out there reading this post better to make confession with your wife before somebody else will..hahaha! Me? I would prefer to be a lucky bastard!

What can I say? Well, I hope in the end they will still be together living in harmony. His spouse, Elin Nordegren has turned 30 last January 1…so happy New Year Elin! I hope you did enjoy the celebration despite of the scandal.

The good thing if you look at the bright side of Tiger, he proved that he is really a man. It might become even worse if we found out that he has an affair with Adam Lambert or Elton John, don’t you think? Kidding aside, despite of the scandal I still admire him for being true to himself and his courage to disclose to public about his love affair with another woman. I think that prior to his admittance he readied himself to lose commercial endorsements and the possibility of losing his own beautiful Swedish-American wife. Surely he will miss Swedish massage!
