Holiday? Palace may suspend work, classes in selected areas for November 10-14, 2017 ASEAN Summit



MANILA, Philippines — For the past days, netizens were abuzzed by the alleged memorandum circular, claiming the suspension of classes and work in Metro Manila on November 13-15 for the 31st ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) Summit. However, the Malacañang Palace clarified there's no official declaration of non-working holidays yet.

“On ASEAN holiday. No official issuance yet. Will post once provided,” Palace told reporters.

31st ASEAN Summit 2017 Clark, Philippines

On November 10- 14, 2017, the Philippines is set to host the ASEAN Summit and Related Meetings at the Clark Field, Pampanga. This will be the second leg of the semi-annual event after the successful chairmanship in April 2017, which was held in Manila.

The chosen venue would be strategic to avoid heavy traffic and other security concerns on the activities directly connected with the Philippine hosting of the summit.

In April this year, the suspension of classes and work (government and private) in some parts of Metro Manila was recommended by the ASEAN 2017 Organizing Council based on the security, traffic management plan and venue of the meetings.

For the November 2017 ASEAN Summit, those awaiting for the memorandum may expect declaration of class and work suspensions for selected areas near Clark Field, Angeles City in Pampanga, northern part of Metro Manila and or areas directly affected by the event.

UPDATE: #WalangPasok: November 13-15, 2017 non-working days in NCR, Pampanga, Bulacan

Same with previous hosting in Manila, we may also expect that suspension of work in the private sector and in places other than those that will be announced will be left to the discretion of their respective local government units and or employers based on assessment of the scheduled activities on November 10-14.

President Trump to visit Manila

As confirmed today, Presidential Spokesperson Ernie Abella said US President Donald Trump will visit the Philippines this November. Trump's visit underscores the improving PH-US ties and President Duterte is looking forward to welcoming the US President in Manila.

Trump will join other world leaders who will attend the ASEAN / East Asian Summit.

"As host country, we hope to make the event productive and pleasant to our foreign guests. We will let them experience our world-famous Filipino hospitality to make sure they would have good memories of their stay in the Philippines," Palace said in a statement.

In the November 2017 ASEAN Summit having the theme “Partnering for Change, Engaging the World,” leaders will discuss the political-security, economic, and socio-cultural development of the ASEAN Community.

The Philippines’ year-long and third ASEAN Chairmanship in 2017 coincides with the regional bloc’s 50th founding anniversary.

It will be held together with ASEAN dialogue partners Australia, Canada, China, the European union, India, Japan, New Zealand, Russia, South Korea and the United States.

‘Last Night’ Movie Review: A Dark Take On A Rather Feel-Good Love Story



*Minor Spoilers Ahead*

Piolo Pascual and Toni Gonzaga reunite for a brand new film, this time under the tutelage of Bb. Joyce Bernal titled, “Last Night.” Added crowd draw that the film’s treatment is Bella Padilla’s debut work as a screenwriter. A seemingly familiar romantic comedy film on the surface, the movie takes a darker and interesting spin with the introduction of the thriller and paranormal genre kicking of with Mark (Pascual) and Carmina’s (Gonzaga) supposed chance meeting while both are on the midst of committing suicide. The meet-cute in itself is pretty different and a great springboard for the two’s whirlwind romance.

First and foremost, the film is shot beautifully. Its various backlighting and scenic locations around old Manila definitely added to the overall viewing experience of watching “Last Night.” The street lamps and old architecture are charming backdrops which made it easy to believe how effortless it is to fall in love and get attached to someone whom you had just met -- especially when there’s already a brewing connection between the two of you. It heightens emotions and definitely pays tribute to the love story that the movie is always meant to be.

Arguably a departure from their last project together in “Starting All Over Again,” Gonzaga and Pascual once again proved that they can do just about any genre flawlessly work, thanks to their palpable chemistry and individual good acting. The two plays off of each other’s acting chops really well, making their characters believable and easy to relate to.

While the movie boldly lunges on a different spin at the romantic genre, its plot execution feels too stretched out at times. All throughout the movie, hints of a possible time-lapse are dropped with several newspaper clippings notable from the Martial Law era to the various changes in mood lighting and small details at the background that teases the plot twist. However, the reveal does not come until the third act, which by then, has lost its appeal and intrigue. We already know that a big surprise is coming and we know that it will change the way the whole film is initially perceived, but its prolonged wait time significantly diminishes the element of shock that is meant to go alongside it.

Additionally, the paranormal side of the narrative does not seem to be as well honed as it could possibly. Carmina’s entrapment in the “middle world” and her supposed role of saving other people from committing the same mistake of committing suicide does not do anything really revolutionary to the story.

Although it’s not a perfect melding of genres, “Last Night” is still a good romantic flick. The film has all the running tropes needed for a love story -- from its fun dialogue to its tended moments. Its thriller component, however, just lacked the narrative establishment that could be fixed with any additional bits that will help further establish Carmina’s premise more effectively.

The Future of Energy: Nanotechnology



Renewable energy resources are very important when it comes to the protecting our future. Across many industries, finding alternative energy sources is incredibly important as a way to stand out against non-environmentally-conscious competitors. With benefits for both businesses and the environment, striving for energy efficiency has never been so prevalent.

Nanotechnology has played a large part in the recent developments of alternative energy sources. The nanotech industry is still in its infancy, but the results are already looking to revolutionize how we can get energy from everyday occurrences.

Here are some of most recent, innovative energy sources enhanced by nanotechnology that experts have found.

Body Movement

One of the biggest complaints and areas of development in mobile technology is the quest for better battery life. Users want a longer lasting battery, but experts and engineers feel the pressure to find alternative and greener ways of sourcing that energy. Because of the demand in mobile computing, researchers have built a system designed to harvest energy from body movement.

Body Movement

Using paper-thin nanogenerators in items of clothing, the sensors can convert both mechanical (movement) and thermal (heat) energies from the body into electric current. The energy can be stored in a self-charging power unit, which requires fall-wave bridge rectifiers to convert the energy.

Alongside the developments in nanotechnology, the decreasing prices of electrical features, like bridge rectifiers, are enabling the search for alternative energy sources to expand. The use of sensors and conductors are widening thanks to them being universally available – such as the bridge rectifiers online at RS Components.

The affordable bridge rectifiers, and various electrical components, provide researchers with the extra resources to create systems like the body-movement nanogenerators. These generators could power electronic textiles, mobile devices, handsets, wearable technology and more.

Air Pollution

Using hydrogen as an alternative energy source has been championed for some time. This is because burning hydrogen with oxygen produces no air polluting waste products, such as carbon dioxide so it’s better for the environment. However, the energy used to produce pure hydrogen often outweighs the yield and uses unsustainable fuel sources, making it a less efficient way of harvesting energy.

Academic researchers in America have created a device that uses an alternative way of producing hydrogen. The device is made up of two compartments, separated by nano-materials. In the one compartment, air pollutants are broken down and the end product passes through the nano-material. This nanotechnology-engineered membrane extracts hydrogen and stores it in the second compartment. The device is powered by solar energy, which makes it entirely self-sustaining and a much greener way of sourcing hydrogen - all thanks to nanotechnology.

With air pollution one of the biggest environmental problems in big cities, the hydrogen extracting technology could turn one of the most harmful by-products of fossil fuels into useful, clean energy.

Solar Energy

Solar energy is one of the most common and commercial forms of alternative energy sources. Solar panels can be found on buildings and appliances across the world. Although its popularity is unwavering, it isn’t the most efficient form of harvesting energy from solar rays. Often, only a small amount of the solar radiation is absorbed, with the rest lost as heat and light.

Solar Energy

Using nanotechnology, researchers have designed a solar panel that absorbs more solar energy. Current solar models use silicon crystals to convert the sunlight into electrical currents, but by using nanostructured silicon instead of crystalline silicon the amount of solar energy absorbed will be dramatically increased.

If this design becomes commonplace in commercial solar panels, homes, and buildings, and business will be able to drastically cut back on energy bills.

Nanotechnology: What does this mean for alternative energy?

Nanotechnology allows scientists to manipulate matter to a scale of nanometers. This intricate ability finds new properties and results from processes that are already in place to source new forms of energy.

Although the nanotechnology industry is still young, the results of working in nano-scale have already had a huge impact on not just renewable energy, but various areas of research.

The results of nanotechnology are clear; to find alternative, cheaper and efficient solutions to problems that effect both businesses and the wider world around it.

MANILA, Philippines — Some local government units and schools announced the suspension of classes on Monday, September 25, 2017 due to the scheduled transport strike against the government's plan to phaseout old jeepney units.

#WalangPasok: Class suspensions on Monday, September 25, 2017

In a report, the Samahan ng Tsuper at Operators ng Pilipinas Genuine Organization (Stop and Go) said it would hold a two-day transport holiday on September 25 and 26.

Stop and Go Transport Coalition President Jun Magno told the press the participation of at least 90 percent of their 74,000 member-operators nationwide.

As of 9:50 p.m., here's the list of areas where classes have been cancelled for Monday, September 25, 2017 #WalangPasok (refresh page for the updates)

LUZON

METRO MANILA

  • Malabon — all levels, public and private


SCHOOLS/UNIVERSITIES


In the past months, jeepney operators had protested against the modernization program of the Department of Transportation (DOTr) in which public utility vehicles (PUVs) that are more than 15 years old will be banned from the road, and will be replaced by vehicles with "low-carbon and low-emission technology."

Magno added that drivers and operators could not shoulder the P1.6-million loan for new jeepney units and daily amortization of P800.

The group proposed for the rehabilitation of old jeepneys instead of acquiring new units.

Modern Juan paves the way for gender equality at home



MANILA, Philippines  — Perhaps no era has prompted a more dramatic shift in gender norms than this one; and these changes are most evident in one of the most basic facets of daily life — chores.

Modern Juan paves the way for gender equality at home

Where household tasks were once viewed as “women’s work” decades prior, nowadays, a more equal division of tasks for cooking, cleaning, laundry duties, and the like in the new millennium is far from unusual.

According to the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB), Filipino men are getting more and more involved in household work. In fact, statistics show that a significant increase was seen in the beginning of 2000s, with employed men allotting an average of 5 hours working on chores. This is a big jump, compared to the average of 1.87 hours from the numbers gathered on employed men from 1979.

With these findings, it’s exciting to see how this would continue to take off to new heights. A contemporary and fresh perspective on equality always starts from the core of the community, the family, and this is precisely why laundry detergent brand Ariel wants to keep the conversation going for every Juan.

As an homage to the men who show their support with the simple yet powerful act of contributing to housework, Ariel’s #JuanWash campaign seeks to inspire men to embrace one of the crucial roles in making a house a home by simply chipping in on the laundry. On September 1, 2017, Ariel launched the campaign online as a thank you to the Juan Washers, or the men who confidently help with the laundry. In partnership with Eat Bulaga, Ariel will be scouring through many different barangays in Metro Manila to find Juan Washers every Friday.

“For a long time, it has been common for women to have a bigger share in terms of household chores. With the rise of double-income homes and a more open-minded cultural landscape, men are now much more accepting of the idea of contributing to the housework,” explains Luisito Morante, Regional Brand Communications for Procter & Gamble, ASEAN Fabric & Home Care.

Many homes have their laundry washed twice a week. If the men of the household were to set aside one day for laundry, this can mean a world of difference for the family as a whole. As a convenient reminder of how each week gives men an opportune moment to show their support, Ariel is looking to dedicate Fridays as #JuanWash days. With this slight addition to their weekly routine, the men of the household can be a New Man as an expert in laundry.

By celebrating the men who take a stand for equality through #JuanWash, Ariel continues to break barriers after coming from the successful launch of #AhonPinay – a project in partnership with TESDA (Technical Education and Skills Development Authority) that sought to provide women with more work opportunities by training them in commonly male-dominated jobs. Through #JuanWash, Ariel further emphasizes the advocacy of empowering Filipinos by showcasing the modern Juan’s role in laundry chores as a critical step towards welcoming the change to lead. Because someone who is man enough to do laundry, is someone who cares enough to let the women in their lives have the same opportunity to progress even more.
