1. Neri Naig shares secret to getting pregnant!
Neri Naig shared on her blog her doctor's tip to getting pregnant. She wrote that her doctor instructed them to time their sexual contact during her ovulation period, and that "once a day lang gagawin para mas makapuno ng sperm ang husband mo. At kailangan na well rested kayo. Hindi dapat puyat, hindi dapat stressed, as much as possible sa bahay lang kayo," she wrote. Neri says the technique worked for them twice, although she suffered a miscarriage the first time. While she acknowledged that it may not work for all women, she stressed the importance of getting a reproductive health checkup often, even before trying for a baby. When Neri and Chito decided to get pregnant, her doctor was able to give her folic acid and vitamin C to prepare her body for pregnancy. It's also important, she says, to have your partner with you during a checkup, especially after undergoing a miscarriage.
2. President Duterte urged to stop casino project near Museo Pambata
Through a petition on the website Change.org, Museo Pambata is seeking 1,000 signatures to stop the proposed construction of the casino beside their building, the Luneta Park, and the Army Navy Heritage Building. It is also calling on President Rodrigo Duterte to intervene and cancel the casino's PAGCOR contract. According to Museo Pambata, "The construction of the said building is a threat to our historical and cultural heritage, and endangers the morality and development of our children. Furthermore, it violates R.A. No. 979, amended by R.A. No. 1224, which prohibits the establishment of a casino within a radius of fifty (50) lineal meters from any public building, school, hospital, or church." As of this writing, the petition already has more than 600 signatures. (abs-cbn.com)

If the first trailer for the new Disney movie Moana was more about the demigod Maui (voiced by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson), this one puts the spotlight on Moana--adorably oh-so-cute little baby Moana, voiced by Auli'i Cravalho. The trailer focuses on her bond with the ocean and it's just lovely. She seems to be "friends" with the ocean before the sequence cuts to her teenager self still clutching the seashell she found when she was little. Moana and Maui travel the open ocean to search for a fabled island. On their incredible journey, they encounter enormous sea creatures, breathtaking underworlds and ancient folklore. Moana opens in theaters in November. (screencrush.com)

5. Parents could be charged if child becomes addicted to drugs
According to Malabon City Social Welfare officer Patricia Agcaoili in a report on GMA 7's Balitanghali, parents could be charged with parental negligence if their minor children becomes dependent and addicted to illegal drugs and refuse to send them to rehab despite knowing about it. "Ito 'yung ginagamit namin sa mga magulang para i-subject for rehab ang mga anak nila," she said. Data from the Philippine National Police (PNP) shows 288 minors nationwide were nabbed for illegal drug activities last year. These kids turn to drugs because of family problems, negligence, and peer pressure. The Department of Social Welfare and Development stressed the importance of a family's strong foundation in keeping kids drug-free. (gmanetwork.com)ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
