PN Secretary General celebrates birthday with blood donation

The Nationalist Party’s Secretary General Michael Piccinino celebrate his birthday by donating blood, saying that he decided to give back on this special day. 

Piccinino also urged others to donate blood if they can as urgent calls for more blood donation supplies are always needed. In recent days however, an uptick in need for blood was announced by medical workers in the field. 

Last month, urgent calls for Type 0 positive blood were issued due to several road accidents leading to a massive shortage. Blood donations are always welcomed by anyone who can provide as it would immensely help the community in times of crisis or other specific needs.

Meta employees have nicknamed Mark Zuckerberg ‘Eye of Sauron’

Meta employees have nicknamed Mark Zuckerberg ‘Eye of Sauron’

Facebook and META CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealed that his employees have ‘lovingly’ nicknamed him the Eye of Sauron. Workplace nicknames are very common, but the one given to the tech billionaire has raised some eyebrows… or maybe, one giant flaming eyebrow. 

Essentially, Zuckerberg is being compared to the biggest villain in The Lord of the Rings, but the CEO said that the nickname was a term of endearment. ‘Some of the folks I work with at the company – they say this lovingly – but I think they sometimes refer to my attention as the Eye of Sauron’ he said on The Tim Ferris Show. 

It essentially has something to do with his attention, as the employees describe Zuckerberg having an unlimited amount of energy which he directs at groups and projects. 

The CEO doesn’t seem to mind the comparison to the symbol of the literal dark lord himself. Zuckerberg admitted he doesn’t know how to chill out at work, which makes sense considering the massive business he runs. Zuckerberg does run quite an empire, albeit not a fiery Mordor filled with orcs. He is currently the 15th richest man in the world according to Forbes, with a net worth of $67.3 billion.
