Political Memes A Double-Edged Sword

6:50:00 PM

 

Its the official last day (yesterday) of the campaign period. As each candidates intensely throw their final blow of convincing the public, there are others who make the intensity a little light with the different memes. Yes, people have found their witty and fun side even in the heat of this year's election.

Naturally, we Filipinos are natural comedians and there is that usual phrase "ang taba ng utak" which means a healthy brain, or on a naughtier meaning a fatty, witty brain. We literally make fun of everything, it is not being bullish, but perhaps it is our coping mechanism in making hard work a little lighter. Experience wise having fun at work makes it a lot faster and lighter. But politically, it has two meanings or purposes.

Political memes are double-edged sword, it may sound funny and witty but its true intension is to promote a political candidate or to defame that political aspirant.

From local to national, we find different political memes some of these are created by supporters and some are simply created by individuals who love a good laugh. Even though these memes provide an avenue for the candidates to get the attention they wanted, as most PR people would say, "good or bad publicity is still publicity."

Now, will these political memes be as sharp as swords in slicing through the consciousness of the voters? Perhaps we can only see it after the final canvassing. So, to us, voters, good luck in making our final decision.

Are You Voting This Coming Election? Here's Our Tip!

8:18:00 PM

 

Are you voting this coming election? 


If you are that's great because you are exercising your right. We all need to vote, that is our duty as citizens of the country, and because that's the only way that we can help in deciding who will be the next President that will lead the country.


So, in just a few days you'll be going to your respective voting precincts, Here are a few of the tips that we can share for you to make your voting experience a little bit less hassle. 


  • 1. If you're a first-time voter check and remember your precinct number. You'll be using that number for the rest of your voting lives. In case you don't remember there's always the online verification of Comelec to check your precinct number. Thank you technology!
  • 2. If first time voter, check where your precinct number is located. It's much easier if you already knew where to go. If in case, you can always check it online or check the bulletin board where you're supposed to vote.
  • 3. Have a list of your candidates or much better memorize your list to avoid bringing unnecessary papers. Less hassle. 
  • 4. Always have your pen with you. That's for registering and signing only. They have the special pen for the ballot. 
  • 5. If you want to finish early visit your precinct early in the morning. Just make sure that you already know where to go. But if you don't want to join the influx of voters visit your precinct in the afternoon. Based on my experience it's much easier and faster.
  • 6. Check and make sure your name is correct and no signature or any mark on your name on their list.
  • 7. Make sure that the ballot given to you is unmarked. 
  • 8. Make sure that they'll put indelible ink on your finger.
  • 9. Lastly, and probably the most important of all bring your alcohol with you and don't forget to wear your face mask. We are still in the pandemic. Keep safe!

We do hope that these few tips can help you with your voting experience. 

SM PRIME fronts with Green Buildings for Sustainable Cityscapes

7:42:00 PM

 

Cities continue to shape the way we live our lives – from shifting to greener lifestyles choices to reducing overall carbon emissions to help save the planet. The successful shift to greener cityscapes begin with the construction of green buildings, providing smart innovations that work with the environment and promote the well-being of the people who use these spaces on a daily basis.

According to a study made by the US Green Building Council, green buildings can reduce carbon emissions by around 40% on average, water consumption by around 30% and waste generation by around 70%. Beyond the environmental benefits, green buildings also help meet social needs by enhancing spaces, protecting human health, empowering differently-abled members of the community to take active participation and ensuring access to basic services at reasonable rates. Economic benefits can be felt as well with green buildings commanding higher rent potentials, encouraging ‘greenovation’ and promoting cultural and recreational activities without harming the environment.

Committed to making every day living better, SM Prime has taken the lead in incorporating sustainability and resiliency in its designs, making each component work together as a fully-integrated city of the future.

“Constructing greener buildings provides holistic solutions not only reducing emissions but also promoting social well-being.” shares Hans T. Sy, SM Prime Holdings Chairman of the Executive Committee. “We see this in our developments which drives us to build greener and even retrofit our existing malls to meet green standards.”

Among SM’s developments, a number boast of receiving LEED Gold certification while others are in the process of certification such as the SM Baguio expansion, SM North EDSA BPO offices, SM Megamall Mega Tower and SM Retail Corporation, to name a few.

SM Aura

The iconic SM Aura at the Bonifacio Global City is a mixed-use development that incorporates retail, trade halls and a Grade A office tower. The LEED Gold Certified mall promotes resource efficiency, green mobility and green landscapes.

SM Aura Bicycle Racks
  • Green Mobility. Cycling is encouraged with accessible bicycle storage, cyclists’ shower rooms and convenient access to safe lanes to public transit.
SM Aura Premier Park
  • Green Landscapes. The SM Aura Premier Park covers over 55% of the building, uses recycled water and provides enough room for plants to grow while protecting the building and people from heat.
SM Aura LEED GOLD Certification
  • Resource Efficiency. SM Aura uses 16% less than conventional buildings through a high- performance building envelope that reduces solar heat while allowing sufficient sunlight. Through low flow water sensor and metering faucets, it also reduces 1/3rd of its potable water use. Only low emitting materials were used as paint, adhesive sealants and floor materials.

Conrad Manila

Known as a lifestyle center, Conrad Manila is LEED Gold Certified. The hotel is designed with a dramatically-formed angular structure that houses a stylish 347-room hotel, spa and function space while S Maison is home to a swathe of smaller, more bespoke outlets for brands.

Bicycle racks at the Conrad Manila

  • Luxury Means Green Mobility. Boasting of high-end luxury experience, Conrad Manila remains environmentally friend by providing preferred parking slots for low emitting fuel efficient vehicles, car-sharing vehicles and special parking spaces and facilities for cyclists.
  • Eco-Friendly Materials. Locally manufactured and recycled materials and products were used whenever possible with more than 80% of the project’s construction waste recycled. Filtration systems maintain a minimum efficiency rating of 90% to eliminate airborne particulates.
Conrad Manila LEED Gold Certification

  • Resource Efficiency. Conrad Manila is designed to reduce energy around 12% less than American energy standards. Its water heating system recovers heat from the chiller condensers to produce hot water while its ventilation system recovers the coolness from the exhaust air, returning that into the building. The hotel is outfitted with occupancy sensors, tinted with low emissivity insulated glass to keep heat and noise out,

Going beyond the LEED Certification, SM Engineering and Design Development, the mall's design and construction arm has implemented these sustainable design strategies on the following projects:

SM Baguio Sky Garden

SM Baguio brings outdoor and indoor as one space optimizing natural lighting and ventilation with the Sky Garden. It has a green roof system as well as a provision for an underground water reservoir for storage and reuse of rainwater with a capacity of 4,389 cubic meters.

SM Seaside Cebu

SM Seaside Cebu mall goers can enjoy an extensive green area, center courtyard and roof garden. Constructed with low glass and utilizes EchoStop for noise management, the building is designed to maximize natural light and ventilation.

SM Lanang Sky Garden

SM Lanang Premier showcases lush greens, a roof garden and green pavers that encourage filtration and allow stormwater back to the underground soil. It is equipped with a rain water catchment system and a water reservoir with a 546-cubic meter capacity based on 425mm per hour rainfall intensity. It also has a materials recovery facility which receives, segregates and prepares recyclable materials for marketing to end-user manufacturers.

SM Masinag Holding Tank

SM City Masinag helps communities avoid flood waters through its 15,033 cubic meter water catchment facility. It is designed with green screens to promote vertical plant growth and is constructed with Clerestory windows as a source of natural light.

SM North EDSA Solar Panels

SM North Edsa is one of the pioneers of the use of solar panels. It is also the first to have the Sky Garden and elevated parks.

The Mall of Asia

SM Mall of Asia is uniquely designed with a seawall to avert any damage from potential storm surges or seal level rise. Built on reclaimed land, it used an excavation method providing a greater degree of protection against liquefaction and seismic events. It is also elevated above the required building levels and is equipped with wave return and drainage channel to prevent flooding due to storm surges and high waves.

SM Marikina
sits on 246 stilts and is built 20 meters beyond the compliance for safety zone. At 20.5 meters above natural ground level, it serves as a first responder and a place of refuge for the residents of Marikina during times of calamities.

SM Marikina on stilts

Today, real estate investors, both for business and personal use, have grown to prefer spaces that support sustainability agendas of the growing population. Pursuing green building standards support the public’s aspiration for more sustainable communities that are designed for environmental and social well-being. SM Prime believes that it is important for developers to work with communities on addressing climate change and achieving shared aspirations – a greener, more sustainable cityscape for all to enjoy.

“Creating a more sustainable way of life requires a sustainable backdrop that supports the shift. At SM Prime, our passion is to create one that is sustainable and resilient for the life we want for today and the future,” Mr. Sy said.

Puerto Princesa: Paradise Regained

11:08:00 PM

 

The Royal Treatment at Puerto Princesa

With safety protocols firmly enforced, Puerto Princesa is poised to again welcome tourists with open arms. In recent years, the highly urbanized city and tourist haven has been paralyzed by the Covid-19 pandemic, then pummeled by Typhoon Odette. But it is now on the road to recovery---as spectacularly as its scenic, romantic and gastronomic attractions. “The tourism industry is the lifeblood of Puerto Princesa, along with agriculture. Almost 15,000 people directly or indirectly benefit from tourism. In varying degrees, most of the recent construction and development projects are related to tourism: hotel-building, parks, cruise-ship ports, street lights, roads, and many more. Unfortunately, some of these have been on hold since the onset of the pandemic,” discloses Demetrio “Toto” Alvior Jr., the city tourism officer.

The Royal Connection


Puerto Princesa, the capital of postcard-perfect Palawan, sprawls across 253,982 hectares of captivating coastlines stretched over 106 kilometers. Due to its strategic geographical location, it has sufficient depth to allow ships of all sizes to anchor, earning a reputation as a “Princess of Ports,” or in Spanish, “Puerto Princesa.” There’s no contention that Puerto Princesa is one of the country’s greatest pleasures. A holiday destination universally beloved by travelers, beach-combers, and trekkers; a bustling business center with a rural allure; a provincial vibe with modern amenities; and a clean and green city recognized for its lush forests, fresh air, and frontier character.

Rising Above Covid-19


The city of Puerto Princesa has been struggling to get to its feet since the outbreak of Covid-19 in early 2020. The lack of tourists, which is the main industry, has forced hundreds of tourism-related businesses to close, leaving thousands of tourism workers unemployed.

“The public-health crisis forced them to find alternative sources of income, which was made more difficult because of the restrictions of movement due to several lockdowns,” Mr. Alvior reveals. “One factor of low tourist arrivals is the fluctuating number of Covid cases, which in turn affects the determination of quarantine requirements and national government intervention policies.” Today, Puerto Princesa is experiencing record lows in terms of economic losses, losing around P5 billion a year for the past two years from potential tourist receipts.



“The City Tourism Department has been strengthening its social media campaigns to encourage local tourists to visit local attractions, in a bid to boost much-needed revenues to the ailing tourism sector,” a cautiously optimistic Mr. Alvior says. “We have one important wish in the City Tourism Department, and that is to prioritize the aids for the Typhoon Odette-affected tourism industry here.” The goal is to regain the city’s glory as an eco-tourism capital. “Our 2022 goals are the full restoration of all the tourist attractions affected by Typhoon Odette such as the completion of the construction of the cruise-ship port and other man-made tourist attractions. There will be wide, extensive, and aggressive promotions of Puerto Princesa to the local and international market.”

The Last Frontier


Puerto Princesa has a plethora of tourist spots. But many tourists who visit the city put the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, one of the New7Wonders of Nature, on top of their list. As the jump-off point for exploring the world-famous Tubbataha Reef, the city also hosts a fair share of adventurers.

“Since the Covid-19 outbreak, we have never ceased to hope that the future will be better. This year 2022 is no different. And while what we want is a full recovery, we cannot afford to be careless when taking big steps. As we begin to truly understand the gravity of the situation, we also come to realize that our moves must be consistent with the bigger picture such as the national situation,” Mr. Alvior says.

Since February 10, the city has been happily welcoming more visitors once again, hoping that the arrival numbers will soon be back to pre-pandemic levels. In this initiative, the tourism department shares the privilege with the private sector.



“While the government is the administrator of the State, the private sector is the bloodline. The government and the private sector are two inseparable factors for Puerto Princesa to prosper, and more importantly, to recover,” Mr. Alvior says. “The key to recovery is to enable and support the private sector to keep or resume their business operations. When it comes to the city’s biggest partners, apart from government agencies, it is the collective impact of small-business operations.”

Puerto Princesa may be “The Last Frontier,” but the City Tourism Department is confident that it will always be the first choice of every traveler.

ANJI TO BRING OUT RELATABLE ‘FEELS’ IN FIRST SOLO CONCERT ON APRIL 30

9:27:00 AM

 

Anji Salvacion is beaming with elation and gratitude as her “Feels: The Concert” is finally happening on April 30 (Saturday)—her first solo concert where she hopes to connect with her supporters.

“This is really very special and important to me because first of all I'll be sharing this beautiful moment with my supporters and that’s what I’m really looking forward to as well. I can't wait to share the bond between a performer and an audience,” Anji shared.

Though tight-lipped about the must-see performances she prepared for her digital concert, the former “Pinoy Big Brother: Kumunity Season 10” celebrity housemate assured that a full-on concert vibe is to be expected as well as lots of relatable ‘feels.’

During the “Feels The Concert” virtual media conference, Anji also shared her dream of incorporating a part of her hometown Siargao into the show.

“Siargao is where I grew up and doon bumuo ng family ‘yung parents ko. I wanted to bring my whole family sa concert ko and I wanted to sing with them all. I want to share it with them para mas special ‘yung moment,” she said.

Anji recently dropped her first self-written single “Dalampasigan,” which symbolizes her memories of spending time at the beach in Siargao as well as the comfort of spending her childhood with her father.

VIP and regular tickets for the ABS-CBN Events-led “Feels: The Concert” are still available for purchase at KTX.ph, which are priced at P399 and P199 respectively. The SVIP tickets, which include a behind-the-scenes documentary of the concert aside from access to a Zoom after-party and main concert link, have already sold out.

Let Anji bring you her sunshine in “Feels: The Concert,” streaming live on April 30 (Saturday), 8PM via KTX.ph. For updates, follow @ABSCBNPR on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and TikTok, or visit www.abs-cbn.com/newsroom.

Charo Santos-Concio Finds a Partner in Health

8:52:00 AM

 

“The whole idea that someone you dearly love is not well at the time of COVID-19 is really scary.” This was what Charo Santos-Concio had to say about her pandemic experience thus far. In the past year, she underwent one of her most trying challenges in her life because her husband, Cesar Rafael Concio, Jr. needed constant medical attention due to an existing health concern.

“I went through a roller coaster ride because my husband’s condition required us to make frequent hospital visits,” she recalls. “You really feel the anxiety, the worry, and the fear that you might get infected. However, it also strengthened my resolve to face these fears because my husband needs me.” Charo further shared that, despite the stresses, it was important to accept the circumstances, remain calm, and keep up with the flow. “Life goes on. We must all learn to adjust to the new normal. We cannot be paralyzed by our fears,” she says. “Kailangan nating harapin ‘yan. Tingnan natin nang mata sa mata. Hindi tayo puwedeng magpatalo.”

The experience also highlighted the importance of securing her and her family’s health. “We must never take health for granted,” Charo reiterates. “We must all live an active life and take very good care of ourselves. It is equally important to look after our mental well-being as part of living healthier.” And there’s also the importance of protecting one’s finances. Charo recognizes the importance of having a health protection plan to be financially secure should an illness strike. “Importante sa akin ang sense of security. Importante sa akin that whatever happens to me, I will not be a burden to my loved ones,” she says.

This was a lesson learned after the demise of her father, where the proceeds from his insurance policy allowed the family to financially cope after his passing. This experience taught her to be pragmatic and to embrace of the value of security and peace of mind that an insurance policy brings to the family. “Ayaw mong iwanan ang mga mahal mo sa buhay with uncertainty about their future,” Charo shares. “As we work hard for ourselves and our loved ones, we should also put our money to good use by investing it in insurance, health protection, and mutual funds.”

Today, Charo looks forward to living a full life with her loved ones. And while she has retired, she continues to take on interesting projects every now and then. With Sun Life as her partner in health, she is assured that no matter what happens, she and her loved ones are financially protected from life’s unexpected twists and turns. “Having a partner in health can indeed help you lead a brighter life,” she muses.

Just like Charo, you too can secure your future and be financially protected should an illness strike. Know more about Sun Life’s Partner in Health campaign by visiting https://sunlife.co/SLPIH.

“THE BROKEN PLAYLIST” TO SHOWCASE “THE BROKEN MARRIAGE VOW’S” MUSIC IN A VIRTUAL CONCERT

9:08:00 AM

 


Angeline Quinto, Fana, Gigi De Lana, Jona, Kyla, and Morissette are ready to bring all the heartbreaking emotions of the hit drama series “The Broken Marriage Vow” into a musical extravaganza dubbed “The Broken Playlist,” happening on Friday (April 29) at 8 pm on ktx.ph.

A joint production of Dreamscape Entertainment and ABS-CBN Events, “The Broken Playlist” is a celebration of the most-talked about ABS-CBN Entertainment series—the Philippine remake of “Doctor Foster”—for its riveting story about love, betrayal, and revenge.

Fans can expect to witness the special performances of the show’s official soundtrack, including Angeline’s “Walang Pagsisisi,” Jona’s “Tinatapos Ko Na,” Kyla’s “Init Sa Lamig,” and Morissette’s “Gusto Ko Nang Bumitaw.” Gigi and Fana are also performing the main and alternate versions of “Sa Dulo,” respectively.

Jona is thankful that her song is part of the concert repertoire. “I’m so grateful because this song ‘Tinatapos Ko Na’ came from Himig Handog 2018 then it became a theme song of the Philippine airing of the ‘The World of A Married Couple.’ And now, it’s part of ‘The Broken Marriage Vow,’ adding to the emotions and ‘gigil’ that the series brings out,” she said.

Meanwhile, “The Broken Marriage Vow” lead stars Jodi Sta. Maria, Sue Ramirez, Zaijian Jaranilla, and Zanjoe Marudo will be joining the concert’s afterparty to finally meet the show’s loyal fans with VIP access.

Aside from great music, Jodi revealed that viewers will get to see exclusive behind-the-scenes footages at the concert. “Not only will they get to see the performances of our singers, they will also get the chance to see never-before-seen footages, and isa pang exciting part is they will get to mingle with the cast and performers at the afterparty,” she said.

Tickets to the concert are still up for grabs on ktx.ph for only P499 for VIP access—with the main concert link and Zoom afterparty exclusive—and P199 for regular access to the concert.

Don’t miss “The Broken Playlist: The Broken Marriage Vow Digital Concert” this Friday (April 29) at 8 pm on ktx.ph.
