It’s been over a week now since the collapse of Ayala Center Cebu Cinema 5 but its traumatic experience last June 15 still lingers especially among the Cebuanos. As reported, among the 350 who attended the launching and team building event by Dreamscape Networks – at least 6 got hurt in the incident where 1 was brought to the hospital and another treated for hyperventilation when the ceiling overflowing with water collapsed..
Oh my, it must have really been scary, huh? Yes, even for those outside the theatre who heard the news might have even thanked all the saints for saving them from the accident.
What happened then? The cinema, in fact, was said to be the newest among the Ayala cinemas as it opened just last December 2013. So?
Well, just looking at the video alone, we could only speculate. Could there have been some roof cracks that when it rained hard the water leaked to the ceiling? Or were there cracks in the pipes? Or maybe some air-conditioning problems perhaps? What?!? Well, we got to turn all stones you know.
But the bottomline is still.. Obviously, the cinema was poorly constructed. Otherwise, maintenance was just not in sync – ’cause how could such a thing happen? Should we now worry that other Ayala cinemas or even those within Cebu could be poorly constructed as well? How about the malls itself, don’t you think the Ayala administration should also start checking their structures?
Careful people. Even “popular” malls no longer seem safe.
Maybe it’s time for the city government to review those permits and penalize those responsible for its issuance and all.. hmm… Should you start by looking at the mirror? Oh well..
If you recall Iron Man, who wouldn’t, you’d notice a striking similarity in its technology and our feature today – RealSense Technology by Intel.
Really. See the video..
It’s hologram! This means, it recognizes hand gestures allowing users to navigate the computer without really touching it. RealSense enables PC sensors to see objects in 3D; and as Intel says, soon this would be a fixture in laptops and tablets.
More so, on the gaming side, you could now have that real game experience – like, you could actually put yourself inside of games.
Just wished we could also have that real “anything” experience. Like, how about getting “full” without physically eating?! Hahh!! Know what I mean?
Are you ready for the next-generation mobile gesture control? That’s right, swiping on your smartphones and tablets would inevitably be a thing of the past – what with “gesture recognition”!
As we can see, there would be no need for us to really touch our screens anymore, thanks to Elliptic Labs’ Multi Layer Interaction Technology. From navigating maps to watching videos to playing games – to even turning on/off your smartphone’s power control – everything becomes easier with just a wave of your fingers.
Simply hot stuff, eh?!!
Just wondering how are we gonna control our texting now? Ooops!
With the cure for Ebola still murky and a couple of “missionaries” as in those trying to lend their medical expertise in Africa contracting the disease and.. forced to go home – many have naturally feared the possibility that the virus could actually infect beyond borders.
Yeah.. Through air travel that is. After all, passengers including the patient breathes the same air in a plane.
Yet according to studies, although we maybe wary of infection, the probability is in fact very low. For one, aside from the fact that air is filtered, it takes 21 days for the virus to incubate. This means, the patient has long gone home in isolation before he could really infect others.
Oh, really? That’s a relief.
Well, Ebola doesn’t really infect through air; but is spread through saliva, vomit or blood penetrating orifices like the nose, mouth or wounds. So if you got family trying to clean some infected mess, he could be in danger. Reminds us of the game Plague where you are to try to wipe out humanity.
Hey, Ebola is no joke. And it’s certainly not a game, but this time, we are facing a reality that humanity could indeed be threatened if we don’t take the necessary steps. Not just quarantine and “spread control” but finding that ultimate cure.
Plague gave us an idea that the worse could happen to mankind. Then again with urgent and concerted effort, we will overcome.
