On Jan. 8, 2012, I posted a query in my Facebook account : "is the fine applicable for FB? FB is a US-based institution and not from German state. Though it has global accessibility but it has its rules and policies too for those who wanted to use its apps and features."
This question is in relation to the story, I read, "Zuckerberg faces €20,000 fine over Facebook's anonymous accounts ban" published in ZDNet written by Jo Best.
On the dawntime of Jan. 9th, 2013 (3:30 am/ Phil. Time), I reviewed my blog and assessed the records of viewers on site, including the statistics of browsers. My interest is drawn to the link http://blog-zug.com/?frame=violetagloria.blogspot.de.
Figure 1. Tracked.
I tracked that this blog, http://violetagloria.blogspot.com is being framed and syndicated to http://www.violetagloria.blogspot.de . The latter contain the entire content of my original blog.
Figure 2. Photo of my original blog site address.
Figure 3. Photo of my syndicated site done by unscrupulous IT person. See how my blog site was copied at [ .de ] domain.
This is to officially denounce the syndication of my original blog to http://www.violetagloria.blogspot.de without my consent. The blog I created under blogspot is http://violetagloria.blogspot.com. I suspected that an unscrupulous person syndicated my entire blog and copied it all, including my name and links and put my entire site at [.de ] domain. Wikipedia explained that .de is the country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the Federal Republic of Germany.
With due respect, I have not authorized anyone to syndicate my blog and publish it under .de site. I made this an open claim to renounce anyone who will copy and have copied my site and used its as link to another site without my free, prior and informed consent. Anyone who did it is liable for such immoral and unconscionable act. I strongly condemn you for being a lousy IT person whose intention is reproachable at a highest degree!
I demand from blogspot admin to look into cases like this and to secure bloggers from blog pirates and online syndicates.
A quick search using Google to track the link http://blog-zug.com/?frame=violetagloria.blogspot.de will reveal this
This explication constitute an announcement to the whole world that someone pirated my blog to that .de domain. Such was done without my consent and such is obviously a gross violation to the ethical standards required for online bloggers.

I love this song from the 80s. I was singing this the whole day and felt that the lyrics seemed odd in this times when most lovers are situated in a context of repression with systematic imposition of policies that can be used against the fundamental right of expression.
I appreciate that the Center for Media Freedom and Responsibility (CMFR) posted photos on Facebook about the movement demanding government to approve FOI. Their photos expressed the continuing assertion of media workers for freedom of information.

This is my first animation video with this song originally sang by Adam Sandler.
I am still honing my skills and creativity hoping to provide some sense of what is lofty and beautiful. The song is good background music while working. This video is for lovers. The video is available in Youtube and in my Facebook account too.

I am in my third week now as a student of Stanford University through Coursera.org.
Yes, I am enrolled to a university far from my residence in the Philippines and am scholarly enjoying it, albeit coping with time and other pressures. It felt really inspiring to be in school again.
I enrolled in many subjects but for these months (until December 2012), I focused on Organizational Analysis and another crash course on Creativity. My other courses will commence its classes by next year, 2013, and will be attended online although in another foreign prominent university. Neuroethics and Philosophy will pre-occupy my thoughts in the first quarter next year.
Our professor in OA course handle the discussion via video lectures and interactive discourse. Through this, distance is no longer a problem and attending the class can be flexibly adapted within my comfort zones. I could listen to lectures with much ease at home, even if I am sprawled on bed. Despite the given resources for readings, I also read other related documents and take notes, too.
Reflection on experiences is much significant above all when theories are applied and we, students, could only relate it with our personal historic accounts specially on matters that touched us the most.
This week, after taking my quizzes, I am seriously considering the question posted by our professor for discussion relating to Coalition. Since it interests me a lot, I thought of sharing it here, too, for keeps. My essay (which I posted in our forum is italized below).
