“Penguins of Madagascar" Cast at Comic Con - Hilarious in animation and in live action

The participation of the cast and filmmakers of DreamWorks Animation’s “Penguins of Madagascar” at the recently concluded San Diego Comic Con is one of the highlights for the fans this year.  Benedict Cumberbatch who voices an suave dapper wolf known as Agent Classified enlivened the event with his fellow cast members including Tom McGrath who voices Skipper and John Malkovich who voices the movie’s villain named Dr. Octavius aka Dave whose ties with the penguins in the past brings up hilarious consequences in the present.

Apple updates MacBook Pro Retina model line-up!

Hot off the Apple desk!  Apple today announced the updated versions of the MacBook Pro Retina 13 and 15 inch models. 

All 13-inch models received a speed bump of another 200mhz previously from 2.4Ghz to the standard 2.6Ghz and 2.8Ghz for the high-end model on Intel Haswell processors and a uniform 8GB ram on all models with Intel Iris graphics.  And good news to us is the slash price of P3,000 per unit.
As for the MacBook Pro Retina 15-inch models, there is also a speed bump of 200mhz now up to 2.2Ghz from 2.0Ghz and 2.5Ghz from the previous 2.3Ghz for the high-end model.  Memory of 16GB RAM comes standard on the 15-inch models with the higher end model sporting a NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M with 2GB GDDR5 memory.  Most notably a price cut of P3,000 for the base model and P6,000 for the high-end model.

If you ask for my opinion, if you do still find some of the just EOL models around the market, which will definitely have a sharp price drop due to the current Apple updates, it will definitely still be a good buy, so I suggest you settle for those instead, but still if you have the budget, by all means go for it.

Now is definitely the best time to buy or update your old machine to a brand spanking new one.  Head to Beyond the Box, Apple premium reseller stores and go get your Mac.

9 out of 10 Filipinos Plagued With Cavities

9 out of 10 Filipinos Plagued With Cavities
Lack of knowledge a primary cause

Filipinos, regardless of age or socio-economic status, have all suffered from a cavity[1]. Figures released by the Department of Health revealed that nine out of ten Filipinos suffer from cavities or tooth decay.[2] Your child could be one of them.

Tooth decay or cavities is the top chronic health concern for children all over the world[3], which, when left untreated, can compromise a child’s eating and sleeping habits, as well as affect their self-confidence. A child suffering from severe cavities may experience difficulty in concentrating on school work, speaking, and even sleeping. Gerlie, a mother of two, shares, “I wasn’t aware that my child was suffering from cavities until one day he cried because of his very painful toothache. He couldn’t move and wasn’t able to do much else until the pain  went away. He didn’t even have the appetite to eat or the energy to go to school.”  These result in increasingly escalating detrimental effects on health, school and work performance, and even self-esteem[4]. Aside from compromising a child’s eating habits, severe decay in baby teeth can have serious consequences for a child’s speech and jaw development.[5]

Notorious writer Bret Easton Ellis (“American Psycho”) and acclaimed director Paul Schrader (writer of “Taxi Driver” and director of “American Gigolo”) join forces for this explicitly erotic thriller about youth, glamour, sex and surveillance. Manipulative and scheming young movie producer Christian (adult film star James Deen) makes films to keep his trust fund intact, while his actress girlfriend and bored plaything, Tara (Lindsay Lohan), hides a passionate affair with an actor from her past. When Christian becomes aware of Tara's infidelity, the young Angelenos are thrust into a violent, sexually-charged tour through the dark side of human nature.
“The Canyons” is a contemporary LA noir film about the dangers of sexual obsession and ambition, both personally and professionally.  One chance encounter among a group of people in their twenties sets in motion a series of events, resulting in deceit, paranoia, cruel mind games and violence.
From Crystalsky Multimedia, “The Canyons” opens very soon this August 13 in cinemas nationwide.
