Get Free Skills Certifications at Brainbench

In the post I wrote recently entitled 5 Tips to Get Hired Doing Online Jobs at oDesk and, I emphasized the importance of taking tests and certifications relevant to your skills on your profile so that potential employers can assess if you're fit for their job opening and you might end up getting more job offers. One website that you should know about concerning this is Brainbench.

Brainbench is a program which gives people the opportunity to get 600+ certifications for skills which they can use to enhance their resume or CV. Whether you are a professional or not, freelancer, part-time or full-time career person, working in fields like computer programming, web designing, business accounting, engineering, medical transcription, writing, etc, you can find a certification for you here.

Registering to the site is free and there are a dozen free skills tests available but most require a payment of $49.95 or member subscription. If you join for free, you can take free tests, but you will not get certificates for tests taken. You can pay for a certificate to be issued to you. You also can compare your score with other takers and you also get listed in Brainbench's candidate database which is searched by potential employers.

So, if you're looking to build your online transcript, why not join Brainbench now? Tell also your friends about it.

Oh, I missed the free event! :(

I opened an account with Odesk to accommodate a client request. So far, I'm having fun with the free tests.

Maybe next time, I'll be luckier and in a better loop for Brainbench certification.... Congratulations again on your special award, Chin!

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working. Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time. We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice. The life cycle of head lice.

Sisa Monologue Script in English

Last second quarter, my Grade 8 daughter's English class teacher asked them to present a Monologue in class. The teacher asked the students to choose a character on whom they want to base their monologue. My daughter chose Sisa of Noli Me Tangere. The problem is that most of the Sisa monologue Script that can be found on the internet are in Filipino or Tagalog. You can't find one in English. Well, there's one but it was very, very short, just one paragraph, I think. And so, we had no choice but to make a Sisa monologue script in English. It's not required for the students to make their own script and so I helped my daughter produce one. I just looked up a good Sisa script in Tagalog online and translated it. Thank God for Google Translate as it helped me do 50% of the work. The Google translation was not 100% accurate, so I still had to edit it. Here's the final script (515 words), which I want to share with you (and other people looking for Sisa monologue
