Move Over Selfie Sticks, Here Come Selfie Shoes!

SAN JOSE, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Jose Headquarters) – In 2014, The Adobo Chronicles broke the story that the American Psychiatric Association (APA) has officially declared the taking of selfies as a mental disorder called “selfitis.”

Since then, entrepreneurs have capitalized on the disorder to venture into selfie accessories, not the least of which is the telescopic selfie stick.

But it’s 2019. Move over, selfie sticks. A new, fashionable selfie accessory has hit the international market. It’s called the Selfie Shoes.

For now, the shoe designs are meant for women, but designs for men are in the pipeline and will be launched soon.

After all, a selfie knows no gender.

Filipina Nurses To Washington State Senator: We Don’t Play Cards, We Play Online Sudoku

D52D4C82-B74A-4722-AEB5-4F7DCDCC7169SEATTLE, Washington (The Adobo Chronicles, Seattle Bureau) – Washington State Senator Maureen Walsh (R) infuriated healthcare workers nationwide after making outrageous comments about nurses who “play cards” on their shift.

The Senator’s remarks came during a heated debate in the Washington State Senate over SHB 1155, a new law that would establish mandatory meal and rest breaks for nurses. Walsh argued for an amendment to the bill that would exclude smaller hospitals from the requirement, suggesting most nurses sit around idly at work playing games.

Reacting to the Senator’s remarks, members of the Filipino American Nurses Association said they were deeply hurt and insulted, saying they never play cards during their work shift.

”Playing cards is so passé. This is the age of modern technology and the Internet. Most of us play online Sudoku on our smart phones,” an association spokesperson told The Adobo Chronicles.
