How to Find Free Driving Directions Online

This article is dedicated to telling every location in Filipino. Please be informed that before every word listed below, the speakers add the word sa which marks the next word as an adverb of place. It is very similar in use to the English word in. In English, we always encounter the word the after the in (in the...). In Filipino, the word ang is the equivalent of the, but it is not used in this way. Ang is used for the subjects and the objects in the sentences and not in adverbs of place.

Four cardinal points in Filipino

Below, we have here enumerated the four basic cardinal points. However, since the Philippines have several provinces which have Spanish names (along with are the words like norte and sur), I will include these Spanish terms for directions in this article. Notice that I did not add the Spanish for east and west. This is because they are not used in the Philippines. Instead, there are words oriental which is eastern or the orient and occidental which means western used in Philippine provinces.

Hilaga/Norte - North

Timog/Sur - South

Silangan - East

Kanluran - West

The in betweens (cardinal points)

The point that we will be discussing in this next group of directions are the variations in southern areas. Katimugang is derived from timog which we already know as south. The affixes ka and an (note that the g attached is used as modifier) are used to mean a certain place. Remember that there are some words which do not have ka in the end to mean a place and just have an alone is attached. As for the timug, Filipino tends to change sounds depending on the nearby sound for better blending.

Hilagang silangan - Northeast

Hilagang kanluran - Northwest

Timog silangan - Southeast

Timog kanluran - Southwest

Katimugang silangan - Variation of southeast

Katimugang kanluran - Variation of southwest

More specific directions (cardinal points)

About this next group, it is common to hear this in weather news in the local media.

Hilaga hilagang silangan - NNE

Silangan hilagang silangan - ENE

Hilaga hilagang kanluran - NNW

Kanluran hilagang kanluran - WNW

Timog timog silangan - SSE

Silangan timog silangan - ESE

Timog timog kanluran - SSW

Kanluran timog kanluran - WSW

Different locations in Filipino

Below are some of the words indicating locations in Filipino. I further sort them to clarify that there are root words that are used in adverbs of place without having affixes attached (like the basic cardinal points).

Taas - Up

Baba - Down

Labas - Outside

Loob - Inside

Gilid - Side

Tabi - Beside

Sunod - Next

Kanan - Right

Kaliwa - Left

Gitna - Center or Middle

Harap - Front

Likod - Rear or Back

Below are some of the words indicating locations in Filipino which have affixes to it. Look at the words above and below. They are derived from the words up and down which are listed above. The prefix i is attached. These two are also used as imperative verbs (raise/lift and put down/under). To avoid confusion, please remember that verbs in Filipino are usually in the beginning of the sentence and the adverbs of place always have the word sa before it. Itaas mo ang bandila natin. - Raise our flag (itaas is used as verb). Sa itaas, nakatulog ako - Upstairs, I fell asleep (itaas is used as adverb of place). Look at the word for below and beneath in my list below. They are derived from root words babaw which means superficial and lalim depths. Now, let us go to the words for beside and flanking. The prefix used here is ka. If you remember, I said earlier that there are words which do not have ka but instead retain an as its suffix. There are words which do not have an as suffix but retain ka as prefix. Katabi and kasunod are the examples of it.

Itaas - Above

Ibaba - Below

Ibabaw - Top

Ilalim - Beneath

Katabi - Beside

Kasunod - Flanking

Pagitan - Between

Simple Guide on Selecting GPS Navigation System for Your Car

Are you wanting to switch careers or explore new job options? Perhaps you are unhappy with your current career, but unsure of what your options are. Maybe you have so many options that you feel overwhelmed. Whatever your situation, taking some time out for a self-evaluation prior to making any big change is a smart move. It's probably been a while since you last thought about your natural talents and abilities! Career coaching can help you uncover and identify those talents and abilities that, once realized, can lead you on a journey to greater career fulfillment.

Try the following brainstorming exercise, meant to help you pull out the best parts of your professional personality. All you need is a pen and paper or your computer, and some quiet time to reflect. There are no right or wrong answers here. Just be honest with yourself. When we're reasonable about what we can achieve, we're better matched to a future position, one that satisfies us because we're already inclined to perform that particular role and do it well.

1. As a child, what types of leisure activities did you enjoy most?

(Were you handy with tools? Good at making crafts? Did you write stories, enjoy brain teasers? What about sports or outdoor exploration? Were you a budding entrepreneur, with lemonade stands, a paper route, or other lucrative childhood pursuits? What about science projects or caring for and spending time with pets?)

2. When asked to volunteer for a group project, whether it's on the job, with your church, school, or another place, in which areas do you typically offer your assistance?

3. Which electives did you sign up to take in high school, college, or other training school? Out of those, which classes stand out in your mind as being the easiest and most enjoyable for you? Which ones did you get the best grades in, and for what types of assignments or projects?

4. What extracurricular activities did you participate in at your high school and/or college?

(To which groups did you belong, and what areas did you sign up to offer your contributions? Were you on the school paper or yearbook committee? Did you enjoy building stage sets for the theater group or work as a deejay for your school radio program? Were you a sports team member or assistant coach? Computer or math club?)

5. Think back to all the memorable moments in your life where you were congratulated or acknowledged for your efforts. What did you do at that time to warrant recognition? If you can think back to notes of thanks, testimonials or other expressions of appreciation, what messages did people have to say about your best qualities?

6. When asked to write your performance reviews for previous jobs, which areas did you most excel at, and in what ways? Take some time to explain, citing examples of moments where you exhibited stellar performance on the job.

When you're finished writing out the answers to the above questions, go back and re-read your answers. What personal attributes can you see popping up repeatedly over the course of your life? Can you think of different types of jobs where you'd be able to best utilize these skills and personal strengths?

The "Mapquest" to Heaven

Every time I have to travel to a place where I've never been or I've not been there lately my favorite place find directions is mapquest. Everything looks so easy, you just key in your location and your destination and with one click you get the precious directions. You get the shortest way, the fastest way, the mileage and the time of traveling.

Sounds great no? Yes, it makes all so easy... But traveling isn't that easy and when you start to travel you find out that there are certain unpredicted things like a traffic jam, an accident and sometimes...the wrong directions. Most of the times mapquest is giving you good directions, but sometimes you get some wrong directions too.

I remember traveling to Georgia and right at the end of the travel I got lost. I was lucky to have my cell phone with me and I've called my friend who gave me the right directions. The reason this is happening is because new roads are made every year and sometimes mapquest is not yet updated.

For example I live for more than 2 years in the same place and mapquest still can't find my address. It's true that is taking me very close, but not to the right place.

Everybody need directions in life and not only directions, but the best directions. You want to take the best decisions for you, and never miss your opportunities and reach your full potential. But let me ask you a question: Have you always taken the right decisions? Have you always got the perfect directions?

Few years ago USA designed a peace plan for Middle East, it was called "The road map". They were determined to follow it and to bring peace in that troubled area. I don't know if that plan worked or not, but I know is not peace in that area now.

The truth is that we are not getting always the best directions and we have them we fail to follow them. The Bible says that "There is a way that seems right to a man, But its end is the way of death." (Prov 14:12) or other version says "That many ways seem right to a man" . Yes it is true so many ideas we have, advice we receive from others, teachings we listen, education we receive, all of them seem to be the answer to our problem. It's only when we start the travel following them we find out that they aren't perfect and our soul is still empty and restless.

We have such a great responsibility on our shoulders, our decisions will not only influence our present and future on this earth, but will influence our eternity. We have a mortal body, but an immortal soul and Jesus says that our soul is more valuable than the whole world "For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?" (Mt.16:26).

Where do you look for answers? Where do you look for directions? Where do you look for advice?

I personally know where is the best mapquest to find directions to Heaven. Jesus Himself is the one who came from there and went to prepare us a mansion in Heaven. He is the ONLY WAY to Heaven. That's why I look for direction in His Word, the Holy Bible which has never failed to give me the best answers, the best solutions and the best directions in my life travel.

Why don't you try it? You'll find peace and joy on the travel and also an amazing welcome at the end of your travel. As long as you follow Bible's directions you'll never get lost and you're never alone. Jesus Himself said: "and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." Amen." (Mt. 28:20b)

The Laws of Physics and How They Affect Driving

Parking lots are convenient, but they are also dangerous -- accidents waiting to happen. Grocery store lots are especially dangerous when people are getting off work and rushing to buy food for dinner.
Unpredictable drivers also contribute to parking lot accidents and you have seen them all.

Cross country drivers -- the ones who drive diagonally across the rows -- are one danger. They often drive across several rows before coming to a stop. Some are so intent on getting the space they want they reverse directions. You can hardly tell where they are headed next.

The "ignore the lines" drivers are not much better. These drivers park across the white lines and take up two, sometimes three, parking spaces. Park next to these drivers and you take a chance that your car will be dinged.

Then there are the "ignore the rules" folks. Though they are not handicapped these drivers make a bee-line for handicapped spaces. What's more, they are not the least bit embarrassed about it. Ignore the rules drivers think they are entitled to these spaces.

"Not looking behind" drivers are really dangerous. They are in such a hurry they forget to look behind them before backing out. Collisions and near-misses are part of their day. Unfortunately, they endanger careful drivers like you and me.

I was only in the grocery store for 20 minutes. In that time a driver hit my car door. The dent was small, and it was also costly, $500 to be exact. When I reported the accident to my insurance company the agent said, "We hear this story all the time." How can you steer clear of parking lot accidents?

1. Use your defensive driving skills. Drive as if everyone else is crazy.

2. Turn on your car lights for safety.

3. Circle the lot first and and look for empty spaces.

4. Drive slowly.

5. Watch for rolling carts, running kids, and parents with strollers.

6. Obey all stop, one way, and yield signs.

7. Park at the rear of the lot where there are usually fewer cars.

8. Choose a spot that is far from tent sales, garden sales, and high school car washes.

9. Park beneath a light.

10. Center your car between the white lines.

11. Before you back out look behind you and in both directions.

12. Go forward to the next row so you do not have to back out.

Share these tips with teenage drivers. The tips do not guarantee that you and your teens will be accident-free, but they stack the odds in your favor.
