The German Japanese Blogger is back!

Hey guys! I’m back! It has been a while since I last posted in this blog. I’ve been very busy during the past few years managing our family business here in Maharashtra, India. My last post in this blog was last year 2009, about the Davone Rithm.

Oh boy. That was a long long time ago. Good thing I still remembered this blog and my domain hasn’t expired yet. I even guessed my password right and I didn’t even bother to click the “Forgot Password” link in the login page. Whoa! This is amazing! My blog is still alive. From WordPress 2.7, I have successfully upgraded my blog to WordPress 3.2. I encountered a slight error known as “Cannot redeclare pclziputilpathreduction()“. Anyway, thanks to the post made by Bryan Veloso, I was able to fix the error in no time!

Ok so what now? I’ll be blogging more often and I promise to update this blog as often as I can. Maybe I’ll write about my life here in India and I’ll share some cool places to visit here in India. I will also be posting pictures about everything in Maharashtra. This place is just awesome!

I’ll be visiting Germany next month, and Japan on November. I will also drop by Singapore to see the roof top pool in Marina Bay Sands. My work mates went there last February 2011, and I haven’t had a chance to come with them.

Anyway, that’s all that I can share for now. I’ll be updating this blog again soon! Thank to all of you who are still reading this humble blog of mine. Alvida!

Glad To Be Back!

It’s been a while since a become idle or silent perhaps in my blogging life. I’ve been busy with a lot of offline activities that’s why I wasn’t able to get online and blog! I really really missed the Philippine Blog sphere and my online friends. I will be posting more updates, pictures and other things that is interesting. So stay tuned for more updates here at hushburn.com!

I’ll be working with my feedburner, pages on this websites, contact form, gallery, and many other important features that a blog should have.

House committee moves to ban in-flight cell phone use

A House of Representatives committee threw another hurdle into the path of in-flight cell phone use Thursday, when it voted to ban the use permanently. By a voice vote, the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee passed the Halting Airplane Noise to Give Us Peace–or Hang Up–Act, which was introduced earlier this year by Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.).

The legislation, which now moves to the full House for consideration, would prohibit “voice communications using communications devices on scheduled flights,” with exceptions for flight crew members and a federal law enforcement officer acting in an official capacity. In-flight texting, Wi-Fi, and e-mail on airplanes would not be affected.

In a statement, DeFazio said that not only is cell phone use aloft an annoyance, but also that airlines should be stopped from using in-flight talking as a potential revenue source. “With airline customer satisfaction at an all time low, this is not the time to consider making airplane travel even more torturous,” he said. “Polls show the public overwhelmingly doesn’t want to be subjected to people talking on their cell phones on increasingly over-packed airplanes.” During the hearing Rep. John Mica (R-Fla.) lodged a dissenting voice, saying, “You are trying to legislate courtesy, folks, and that just doesn’t work.”
