Lyal Mackintosh

"Besang", a small Barangay at Malita, Davao Del Sur which is blessed with beautiful breaks conducive for surfing.
But have you ever wonder who was the first person to surf at Besang ?

Lyal Mackintosh was the first surf explorer to ever play surf at Besang surf breaks. in February 1986, he was accompanied by some local folks at said area and brought with him his longboard surfboard. At that time, he was the Chairman of Trade Developement Zone Authority in Darwin Northern Territory Australia. For short he is an "Aussie".

After his first visit, he already fell in love with the said place and its small community.
According to some of his closed friends at Besang, he was a generous person and donated medicines for the community, Clothing for the kids & he also donated school facilities at Besang elementary school.

On his later visit, he was planning to put-up a small rest house "surf shack" with some cottages near shoreline for him to have a house to stay with every time he visits there. he ask for some help at the locals for him to buy a small lot, but unfortunately it wasn't materialized.

His Last mail contact to his friends at Besang was on 1996. As I further research on his current whereabouts.

1801 :Johann Wilhelm Ritter of Germany discovers ultraviolet rays.

1820 : Englishman Everard Home determines that the melanin in darker skin absorbs heat and protects the skin.

1878 : Otto Veiel of Linz Austria, publishes one the first reports of a substance being used to protect skin from ultraviolet rays. He discovered that tannin protects skin from UV damage, but it also stains skin, so it isn't overly useful.

1928 : The first commercially available sunscreen appears in the United States.

1930 : Eugene Schueller, founder of L'Oreal, is credited as the inventor of modern sunscreen.

World War II : Soldiers use "red vet pet," a red jelly like substance that isn't the most effective and stains clothes. Its inventor Benjamin Greene, later develops a more practical formula & starts Coppertone.

Post WWII : Coppertone's early formula prevents sunburn & leads to more sun- bathing, but doesn't block UV radiation entirely. Skin cancer rates increase as a result.

1962 : SPF (Sun Protection Factor) was defined.

The Whale Warriors

I was fascinated by one of the books written by Peter Heller about saving the world's largest mammals. Sacrificing your own life to defend the lives of whales is truly a remarkable one. According to Peter, "Any day saving a whale is a good day to die."

It was 2005 : journalist Peter Heller arrives in Melbourne to join the Farley Mowat , a pirate ship hellbent on saving whales from hunters in Antarctica. On board Heller finds an uncompromising crew of eco-crusaders who fly the jolly Roger, operate a steel blade they call the 'can opener' to ram whaling fleets, and dismiss Greenpeace as 'Avon ladies'. Their leader, the irascible Paul Watson, patrols the seas, in search of his nemesis, the Nisshin Maru . Over the next two months this motley crew will plough through gale-force winds, monster swells and a monotonously vegan diet, as they chase the Japanese ship, and find themselves at the centre of an international whaling war, where the stakes are dangerously high and there is no turning back.

The Whale Warriors is a gripping adventure story set on the high seas.
