Armstrong is said to be worth around $100 million, but most sponsors dropped him after USADA's scathing report—at the cost of tens of millions of dollars.

October marks not only breast cancer awareness month, but the equally important mental health month as well. In a recent study on the happiest countries, despite it being “more fun in the Philippines,” surprisingly (at least to me), the Philippines ranked 103 out of 155 countries in the 2012 World Happiness Report published by Columbia University.

Psychic surgery as a spiritual practice


By

I believe that any discussion about mystical and paranormal happenings in the Philippines will not be complete without mentioning the most sensational and controversial form of faith healing, which can only be found in the Philippines—namely, bare-handed psychic surgery.
