    3. Globe to provide Wi-fi at MRT stations
    You can soon connect to the internet when you’re in an MRT station. Globe Telecom, Inc. and the Department of Transportation and Communication (DOTC) Metro Railway Transit (MRT 3) signed an agreement to provide commuters Wi-fi service, as it will be using train stations to host network infrastructure. The collboration aims to improve the experience of the public commuters and address mobile signals along the city's main thoroughway, especially during rush hours. We’d have to wait five years, though, for the infrastructure to be built. The service is free for the first 30 minutes of use. (gmanetwork.com)


    4. New Periodic Table elements now have names
    But don't get attached to them yet. The new Periodic Table elements are given the names Nihonium (Nh), Moscovium (Mc), Tennessine (Ts) and Oganesson (Og), for element numbers 113, 115, 117, and 118  respectively, but these are on a five-month probation period. The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) had the discoverers suggest names, but now asks for comments and feedback. Periodic elements should be named after a mythological concept or character, or an astronomical object, a mineral or similar substance, a place or geographical region, a property of the element or a scientist, and they must end in "-ium," "-ine," or "-on" depending on the grouping of elements they belong to.

    5. Crocs could give you foot problems
    According to the American Academy of Podiatric Sports Medicine president Dr. Alex Kor, this is because Crocs do not adequately secure the heel and can result in tendinitis, worsening of toe deformities, nail problems, corns and calluses when used for a long period of time. "The only two types of patients that may benefit from wearing Crocs are patients that have a very high arch, or those who suffer from excessive edema of their legs and ankle. But, under no circumstances can I suggest wearing Crocs 8 to 10 hours per day," he advised. (huffingtonpost.com
