Meet Pietro Boselli, the world's hottest maths teacher

Pietro Boselli, 26, originally from Negrar Italy, was a former lecturer at University College London teaching mechanical engineering class. He was branded the "world's hottest maths teacher" after his students found out that he is also a top fashion model who loves going to the gym.

One of Boselli's students tried a simple search for his name on Google. After discovering his 6 feet 1 lecturer's Instagram with more than 46,000 followers, Arief Azli tweeted: 'That moment when you realize your maths lecturer is a top designer model.'

He posted a picture of his lecturer scribbling equations on the whiteboard next to one of him shirtless with the caption: 'Only at UCL‬ ‪#‎MechanicalEngineers‬ ‪#‎ModellingandAnalysis ‪#‎Bromance‬.'

Other students soon followed suit and posted pictures of him taking classes, with one saying: 'This is why I never miss a class'.

If you're a student of Boselli who has a PhD in Mechanical Engineering and was crowned the European Fitness Model Champion in 2014, would you miss the class?

Top 5 Bar passer gets new car from university

After enduring several sleepless nights and going through thick books of different cases, luck decided to show itself to the top Bar passers of the Philippines. For one, their names were scattered recently on different big newspaper companies, websites, blogs and on TV as topnotchers of the 2014 Bar Examination. In fact some were also invited to appear in a local tv show - an experience others like me won't be able to achieve anytime soon. Then of course there is a very bright future waiting for them. Law firms and companies are now showing their interest to these new lawyers of our country.

But it seems luck is not yet done in making them a lot happier. One in particular is fifth placer Michelle Liao, who is set to get a brand new car from her school, the University of Cebu.

A white Toyota Vios was seen at the quadrangle of the university, ready to be turned over to Liao, who garnered a Bar score of 84.50%.
The University of Cebu had promised Bar takers that whoever gets to be included in the top 10 will receive a brand new car.

"We really want them to do well. The car is our way of encouraging them to excel," Candice Gotianuy, chancellor of the university, had said.

“It's both an incentive and reward for our students,” the chancellor also said on her Facebook account.

How to Survive an Airplane Crash

Some of us fly more than once, twice, thrice or perhaps even four times a year especially to the Philippines whenever our finances and time permit us to. Let me take that back. Once or twice is possible. I find it unlikely though that someone can go home or to any country for that matter more than twice per year without causing trouble to his/her school or company.

Anyway, since we all fly back home I'm assuming that some of us know pretty much everything about airline safety. But do we really know everything?

In the unlikely event you're ever in a place crash, these tips will dramatically improve your odds of walking away from it alive.

How to get extra classes the easiest way?

Looking back to the time I first arrived in Thailand I was a struggling individual searching for work. Because I refused to work with schools offering 15,000 a month salary, I ended up accepting my friend's offer for experience sake. And since I was also running out of "ammunition" for my food and fare, I thought it was a good idea to earn a few baht on the side while waiting for my big break.

Before Rajabaht my first ever job in Thailand was in a language school in Nonthaburi. If my memory serves me correctly I was given two hours on Saturday and three hours on Sunday. I taught an English conversation course for two months during the weekend and was only earning 200 baht an hour. I felt so down because after refusing a full time job from schools offering 15k, I ended up having a part time job that paid much less. It was like a nightmare. If you'd like to know how I managed to climb the ladder, click the blue link below.

I would say that I enjoyed working with the man running the center. He was nice and easy-going. He was the one starting a conversation everyday. But since he cannot provide documents needed for a non immigrant B visa so I could stay longer in Thailand and cannot pay me with the amount I asked him to, I left them. I didn't leave them hanging though. They knew it was coming.

Then I knocked on Rajabaht's door and good thing they let me in. At that time I've got a not so busy schedule and I used it to expand my network. I spoke to the people in my neighborhood and offered them my services. I made some flyers and paid shops nearby a visit so I could hand them the flyers personally. Only a few students made it to my home, though.

But I didn't stop. I made learning fun and easy for my students who came to my house. I introduced interactive and fun games I found online. I befriended them. I let them feel that I'm always around whenever they need help in their lesson. I also did the same thing to my students at the university and became close to my colleagues. I found out that those flyers I gave, those visits to shops meant nothing. Word of mouth is the key. Once the students enjoyed learning with you, they're the ones who are going to spread the word to others. Keep everything simple yet fun. 

From 200 baht per hour a few years back, I am now getting a quite handsome rate per hour. I'm still not rich. I wish to be one, though. But teaching in Thailand won't make us rich. However, I'm proud to say that I'm no longer struggling. Also, I don't look for part jobs anymore. They now look for me. LoL

On a serious note, I hope this post will serve as a motivation to continue your fight. Don't give up just yet. I believe you won't be struggling forever. There's always a rainbow after the rain. 

[Video] Mass cheating caught on cam

Thinking of giving up because your students cheat big time? Don't quit just yet. 

In the Indian state of Bihar, parents and relatives risk their lives as they climb school walls to pass notes to their children who are taking the board exam.

Thai model Duangjai Phichitamphon seriously PISSED at Mainland China's tourists at Korean Airport

I'm lost for words. I'm speechless. Not because I'm fond of what I saw. 

Watch the video and you be the judge.

Yes, there are pain in the ass people like the ones in the video. But these group of unruly Chinese tourists don't represent the Chinese people as a whole. With over a billion people, there are good ones out there :)

Sadly, reports of Chinese tourists misbehaving especially here in Thailand are piling up.

Visa runs made easy with AEC Educational Services Co. Ltd

Filipino tourists in Thailand are given a 30-day stamp on their passport upon arrival. Those who wish to continue their stay in the Kingdom after 30 days have to go to neighboring Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Malaysia to get another two or sometimes four-month tourist visa - depending whether it is a single or a double entry visa. I could be wrong since the Thai immigration normally change their rules every other day. LoL. 

I am speaking how things were seven years ago when I first landed in Bangkok and later extended my stay and procured a non immigrant B visa in Laos. There might be some big changes now but I'm sure the concept is just the same.

So, if you wish to extend your stay, say for instance in Laos or Cambodia, there are two ways to do that. The first one is to travel on your own which could be fun if you're into a more adventure like trip albeit with lots of rides along the way (changing buses or vans). Or partner with an agency that will help you have a nice and comfy ride without the need to change your transportation. Either way you'll still have to endure longs hours on the road but with a guaranteed number of stay again when you come back. 

There are already agencies that operate for quite some time. However, if you're thinking of doing your visa run with an agency, I personally recommend AEC Educational Services Co. Ltd. I haven't tried them yet but I heard good stories from people who already used their services. Apart from that there is also this guy named Jezreel, a Filipino whom you can ask about your status. And of course, they have a Thai lawyer that will assist you in your trip. That's the plus factor I'm sure everyone will agree.
