Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo – Annulled?



If rumors are to be believed in, the perfect couple, Judy Ann Santos and Ryan Agoncillo, are dead set on getting an annulment. It is alleged that Ryan has an extramarital affair with none other than the beautiful Isabelle Daza.

Judy Ann laughs at the issue,” Sobrang ok kami. Kumportable, relax lang at kalmado.” (“We’re ok. Comfortable, relaxed and calm.”)The award winning actress / TV-host also states how she feels bad for Daza who is just starting out with her career and is already confronted with intrigues left and right.

As further proof of their stronger-than-ever relationship, Santos shared their conversation about the issue: “Uy, annulled na daw tayo ha.” (“We’re already annulled, they say.)to which he quipped “Ibig sabihin, pwede na kitang pakasalan ulit.” (“Which means, I can marry you all over again.”)

So I guess this means that detractors will have to find other means to break this very sweet and devoted couple apart.

Free SSL Certificates – Pros & Cons

The concept of free SSL certificates is an interesting one. A free SSL certificate gives a business owner the security of Secure Socket Layers, without the added cost. The purpose of SSL is to provide encryption to guarantee the security of the website it’s installed on, meaning that any sensitive data transferred from the user’s web browser to the business’ web server will be encrypted and indecipherable. The aim of this encryption is to prevent third parties from accessing the information and using it maliciously, which is so easily done these days.

Quality SSL certificates, whether Standard, EV or Wildcard, cost an annual fee and are available from reputable Certificate Authorities, such as Symantec. For between £259 and £1299, you can secure your website with the utmost in SSL features.

Free SSL certificates are available, but because they don’t cost anything, don’t offer the same level of security as the paid-for ones. There are also more downfalls to a free SSL certificate but they can be handy if all the applicant wants it for is to verify their domain name and confirm who they are. However, they certainly aren’t recommended if you need more extensive protection, for example, if you’re expecting to complete online transactions or customer logins.

Free certificates aren’t as trusted by users because they pop-up on the site and you have to click through the pop up to access the site. Even the most honest of businesses will be questioned by a visitor if they have to jump through these hoops to visit the website. The perceived reliability factor is substantially lower and it generally isn’t recommended if you’re aiming to make something of your business.

If you are serious about expanding your business online and want to earn your customers’ trust, consider investing in a paid-for SSL certificate – it will pay for itself in no time.

How big brands use social media for customer care



What used to be the ‘word on the street’ is now the word on the web. Using social media for having a dialogue with your customers is a really effective tool for ensuring that they are happy, and for ironing out the issues that might need to be looked at with growing and maintaining a brand that wins every time. Some of the world’s biggest and best brands have worked out that the best way to engage with their customers is through showing that they are listening. There are a few interesting ways that big brands use social media for customer care, read on to learn how they are doing it.

Back in the day if someone wasn't happy with your product they would vent to their friends over coffee, but with social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook, they now have a much larger audience for their vent. If you are not listening, it will become very clear, very quickly to customers and could affect your business in a big way. Once the words are out on a social networking site it isn't long before other disgruntled customers add their own judgments of your brand, or how your customer care employees handle the situation and it creates a snowball effect. Social networking could be one of the best things to happen to your brand if you use it effectively and let your customers know that they are heard in the public forum of social media. Look for big brands such as Coke and Vistaprint on Twitter and see how effectively they handle their customer care.

4 Different Methods of Hair Removal for you to Consider

Hair removal can feel like a real chore, and some people have a harder time with it than others. People have fought with hair removal for thousands of years, and there are many techniques that can be used for hair removal. Some of these techniques are easier than others, and some of them are more permanent than others.

1. Electric or Manual Shaving

Electric and manual shaving is the most common method for the removal of unwanted hair. Electric shavers can be more expensive but last longer than manual razors. You can find a large range of electric razors in the latest shaver shop catalogue. Manual razors usually provide a closer shave than electric models, but wear out faster. Replaceable razor blades can be expensive, so they're often better to buy in bulk. The right shaving cream and shaving gels can greatly improve shaving for both men and women. Shaving usually needs to be done on a daily basis, but it's also one of the best ways to maintain a smooth and hairless appearance easily.

2. Waxing Or Plucking

Waxing can be used to remove large areas of hair and plucking can be used for smaller areas. Waxing can be done either cold or hot, with a waxy or sugary substance being poured and spread over the hair covered areas, and then a sheet being adhered to the substance. The sheet is then ripped off, and the hair comes with it. Waxing doesn't always take off all hair and it requires that the person doing it let their hair grow out for a few days so that the wax has something to stick to. Plucking, while tedious, is the most reliable way to get small patches of hair out. Plucked hairs take much longer to grow back than shaved hairs.

3. Hair Removal Creams

There are a few reliable hair removal creams on the market. These creams are spread across the hairy areas, and left to sit for a little while. Once the cream is wiped off, the hair should come out with it. Hair removal creams are often easy and effective, but they cannot be used with thicker or coarser hair. Those with sensitive skin may also develop rashes or other allergic reactions when using these creams, which are often very strong. Because of this it's very important to test hair removal creams on small areas of skin before committing to the process. Hair removal creams can also not be used on broken skin.

4. Laser Treatments

Laser treatments are the most final way to remove unwanted hair. With laser treatments, a laser is used to damage the hair follicle so that hair does not begin to grow again. Laser treatments will sometimes remove hair after one treatment, but some follicles may require multiple laser applications. Multiple laser treatments are often necessary to finish larger areas, and they're usually sold in packages. Laser treatments are expensive, but they also mean that you will never need to remove hair again from most areas. The more hair there is, the more expensive the treatments.
