“I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious,” said Albert Einstein. The same can be said about Aiza Diuco, founder and CEO of Age Defying Solutions. Not that she has no special talent, far from it, but that she is and has always been passionately curious.

Traveling with diabetes is a bit tricky. There are certain measures to be followed in order to achieve a safe and joyful adventure. And, you should never, ever disregard them because it’s your health that is at risk. As the saying goes, “Better be safe than sorry.” That’s why I listed some useful tips to help you determine what you should and shouldn’t do when traveling.

One of the top Filipina prides is our naturally tanned skin or what is called morena. This feature has been a dream of some Westerners, and I believe it contributes to the beauty that every Filipina holds. However, many of us still long to have that radiating white skin, and I think that’s okay. Everyone has different preferences, and what makes you happy makes you happy—so do it.

I have always dreamt of living in New York. I long to walk along the urban streets under skyscrapers, hearing the noisy raging honks of cars queued in traffic jams. Silently read a book at a coffee place that isn't the phenomenal Starbucks in 5th Avenue. Maybe experience either the amusing or horrendous night life with foreign strangers in Manhattan or just chill in a pub that resembles McLaren's in Brooklyn. I want to see the Big Apple turns white, as it gets covered with frosty snow on Christmas day. Or visit the Times Square and look at hundreds of people I might never see again. And if I'm lucky enough, maybe bump into Taylor Swift or Harry Styles because why not, right? I'ts New York City, after all. Anyone could be anywhere at anytime. I want to leave this deadbeat town and move to a place where people would be less judgmental of what I'm wearing; where I can actually rock clothes made for winter season or ones that are revealing my flawed skin, and not one eye would follow my tracks. New York City is the dream, or so movies make it to be.

Poor grammar means poor communication. Having a proper grammar and unique content is crucial for a blogger and magazine writer like me. People read my writings, and to keep them that way, I must make sure that my words are precise and comprehensible. That’s why I always turn to this user-friendly proofreading tool called Grammarly.

Grammarly was introduced to me by my thesis adviser in college. Aside from hiring a professional proofreader, we had to use the app in order be certain that our paper was free of copyright infringement. He lent us a premium account, so I was able to try its unique features, and that's when I realized that Grammarly is an essential for every journalist out there.

Not only it offers an application, but Grammarly also has a browser extension which is very helpful for online content writers. I admit that my blog has had a series of grammar mistakes and silly spellings because of my unwariness, and most of the time, I had had to recheck the published ones before I realized that there were several errors in my post. Well, that was a bummer until I decided to use Grammarly not just for my research paper but also for my blog.

As you can see here, the app highlights the incorrect use of grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Additionally, if you hover over the mistake listed on the right, you just need to click it, and Grammarly will then correct it for you. This feature is particularly useful for people who are in a rush and need to be done with their writing as soon as possible.

The plagiarism feature has been beneficial for me, especially during the time when we were working on our thesis. The app highlights the part that contains similar content with other web pages and indicates the link. It also includes a percentage of the copied texts, so you’ll quickly know how much of your ideas are unoriginal. This way, you can easily paraphrase and provide proper citation. You can then download a detailed report of your work that shows the overall score and plagiarism percentage. However, this feature is not included in the free subscription.
