Movie Review: Cloud Atlas

Cloud Atlas Movie

Based on a novel of the same title written by British author David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas is a drama and sci-fi movie. It’s an exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future, as one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, and an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution. The independent film was directed by Lana Wachowski, Tom Tykwer and Andy Wachowski and is top billed by Tom Hanks and Halle Berry. I haven’t read the book but I would like to believe that the movie is faithful to its content. Cloud Atlas consists of six nested stories set from the nineteenth century and then crosses to a distant future, and back. As the movie evolves, then you’ll understand the tagline “Everything is connected.” I love the storytelling. It’s like a tapestry, perfectly woven together ...

Create Websites Easily with IM-Creator

IM-Creator Features

One of the challenges I encountered when I decided to put up my own blog and website for my business was creating my own website. Sure, there are countless services that I can sign up for, but my initial challenge was in getting started. Now everyone can create websites easily with IM-Creator – a service I came across recently.  I’m not sure if they existed at the time when I was just starting. I sure wish I had them before when I was in search for a web maker online. One can choose from a variety of categories to use a template from. What I like is that each template has it’s own character and they’re all well-made. Plus, it’s customizable. I remember my first blog looking like the same with the rest of the bloggers. I had to try to learn some HTML just to make it a little ...

Solar Panels on ADB Rooftop Installed by Green Heat

This is a very timely development since the need to protect the environment is ever increasing, not only in our country, but in the whole world. As a tropical country, we will definitely benefit from solar power technology, not only in terms of minimizing carbon footprint but also in saving money along the way. Using photovoltaic panels or PVs, the system stores the energy from the sun to generate electric power. The electricity can be used in homes and offices to power equipment and/or appliances. Green Heat (GH), a locally-owned company involved in the design, installation, and maintenance of solar PV systems, offers this technology now.
