The epic third and final installment of Christopher Nolan's Batman movie series entitled "The Dark Knight Rises" is now showing in theaters here in the Philippines.

The movie will showcase the performances of stars from the previous two films of the series namely Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne (Batman), Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Batman's trusted assistant, Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, Batman's armorer, and Gary Oldman as Commissioner James Gordon, the honest police officer of Gotham City. There are also new faces in this sequel. They are Tom Hardy playing the role of Bane, the movie's prime antagonist and Anne Hathaway as Selena Kyle (a.k.a. Catwoman).

The film will continue from where the story left in the 2008 The Dark Knight movie where Batman convinced Commissioner Gordon to charge him of all the bad things that happened because of the hero-turned-villain Two-Face. We can remember then that he ran out as fugitive and his hi-tech base was destroyed. But now that a new villain arises (Bane), will Batman come back and once again be Gotham City's hero?

Controversy Over Rotten Tomatoes Review
Although holding an impressive 87% positive mark in the popular film review and ranking company Rotten Tomatoes, the movie met a controversy after Rotten Tomatoes suspended the user comments for the film's review. The suspension came after series of negative, harsh and other offensive comments from the users on those reviewers who judged the movie as "rotten.

2008 Dark Knight is Hard to Match, Even to Surpass
Well, the 2008 epic movie, the second installment of this Batman series is a huge challenge for The Dark Knight Rises. The Dark Knight is a huge success back then grossing over 1 Billion US Dollars worldwide and obtaining critical acclaim from the movie critics. The performance of the late Heath Ledger as the psychotic villain Joker was consistently praised and eventually landed him a posthumous Academy Award. For this film, let us see how Nolan will try continue the already heated story of our favorite hero.

So, see you in theaters then.

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment. Section G-2 of the SSS Loan Terms and Conditions (at the back of the loan application form) explicitly says the following: "The employer shall deduct the total balance of the loan from any benefit/s due to the employee and shall remit the same in full to SSS, in case the member-borrower is separated voluntarily (e.g., retirement or resignation) or involuntarily (e.g., termination of employment or cessation of operations of the company)." In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast," wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information, this technique of adding contrast is known as  Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure, but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

We got it in  i-Scan Healthcare Inc.  here in Quezon City. The cost is  13000 Pesos . Please take note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
