Adidas unveils lightest ever National Team Kits to inspire "All in or nothing" performance at Brazil 2014

New national kits inspired by pride, passion and the vision of next generation football fans Federation kits 40% lighter than any previous adidas kit Herzogenaurach.

Adidas launched the 2014 FIFA World Cup kits of seven leading national football federations, encouraging fans to “show your colours or fade away”.   The kits of Argentina, Colombia, Germany, Japan, Mexico, Russia and Spain have been unveiled with technological advances, producing the lightest kits adidas has ever created. The players’ uniforms will also feature eye-catching designs, inspired by the next generation of football fans.

The national kits have been created using adizero technology, producing lighter kits and an improved fit, enabling players to be faster and more comfortable on the pitch.

The 2014 FIFA World Cup federation kits are over 40% lighter than equivalent 2012 kits, weighing in as the lightest kits ever produced by adidas. Due to technological advances weight has been removed from the main jersey, collars and sleeve cuffs, as well as the national federation crests and even the iconic adidas three stripes. The shorts are now also made with a new woven lightweight fabric for increased breathability and a lighter waistband.  These innovations will give the world’s best players extra freedom of movement and comfort, while retaining resilience and durability on pitch in Brazil.

The design of the kits are based on interviews with the next generation of each nation, with adidas asking young people to express what made them proud of their country. This feedback gave strong feelings of national pride, history and hope, which were in turn translated into stunning kit designs, set to ignite the patriotism and passion of each country. The process was mirrored across each federation, creating seven individual stories and design themes; from the inspirational feats of Russian cosmonauts in the 1960s, to Mexican artistry and the independence of Argentina.

Team Members of Aboitiz Group initiate a Wall of Hope for Super Typhoon Yolanda Survivors

Aboitiz Group initiate 
a Wall of Hope for Yolanda Survivors

Team members at the Aboitiz Group’s Manila Headquarters have decided to send more than relief goods to survivors of super typhoon Yolanda. They have set up a “Wall of Hope” to encourage and inspire the survivors who are still trying to recover and start anew.

Beginning last November 13, everyone who goes to the cafeteria is greeted by a wall filled with colorful envelopes where they could insert a note of hope and encouragement for a typhoon survivor.  

Each time the wall is filled up with notes, the envelopes are gathered and sent to the command center in Cebu, where they are inserted inside relief packs that are distributed to the survivors.  A looped video beside the wall also shows photos of the destruction in Northern Cebu and Leyte , as well as ways that team members can help- whether by donating in cash or in kind, or by volunteering.

Intel transforms local classrooms into interactive learning hubs

 Education tablets deployed in Davao and Makati public schools

Intel Philippines today announced that it has partnered with leading education technology solutions provider FELTA Multi-Media Inc. to enable an education transformation initiative in local public schools through Intel Education Solutions (IES). Earlier this year, Intel helped transform local classrooms in Davao into interactive learning environments by training teachers and donating 25 Intel Education Tablets and solar power equipment to the Marilog Central Elementary School (MCES). Intel is now able to engage more schools in tablet-assisted education with the recent acquisition of 750 tablets by the Department of Education in Makati.

As the Philippines is projected to become one of the fastest-growing economies in ASEAN, education plays an even more important role in producing a high-quality workforce for future jobs. “We feel that this initiative is very timely, given the urgent call for engaging and interactive education in the country. We are optimistic that our investment in the Intel Education Tablet will help equip these students – who make up the next generation of the Filipino workforce – for the increasingly digital future and workplace,” said Dr. Dominico Idanan, Superintendent, Department of Education, Makati.

DigitalGlobe Opens Imagery Access to Yolanda-Damaged Areas

Typhoon Haiyan, locally known as Super Typhoon Yolanda, left the Philippines in a national state of calamity with at least 2 million families in 44 provinces gravely affected, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC). 

The world has united to help victims of the disaster wrought by one of the strongest storms ever recorded. Various relief efforts are helping to alleviate the dire situation. But long-term strategies involving strategic mapping of urban and rural developments are needed more than ever. Learning where and how to adapt to future storms, including surges, in order to minimize the impact of such weather disturbances is key to rebuilding lives, property and infrastructure in the damaged areas.

Music Museum’s Christmas lights ceremony sets Theater Mall and Promenade areas ablaze

 Lights up at Theatre Mall and Promenade

The tradition of lighting Christmas trees dates back to the XVIIth century. Candles were used to light The Tree, until the first Christmas tree lit by electric lights went up in New York City in 1882 with just 80 small electric light bulbs. It was Edward Johnson who created the first string of electric lights that became popular in the 1900s to light up Christmas homes.

Today, Christmas lights and Christmas displays have come a long way. Thousands of lights with various effects make Christmases bright everywhere. Catch the dazzling Christmas lights display at the Theater Mall and the Promenade at Greenhills Shopping Center that were turned on in an equally dazzling ceremony last November 15. 

Music Museum Group, Inc. President Precy M. Florentino (fifth from left) and German “Kuya Germs” Moreno (fourth from left) led the “Lights On” ritual in the company of young Kapuso stars (L-R) Teejay Marquez, Sharmaine Santiago, Hiro Peralta, Louise de los Reyes, Jake Vargas and Sanya Lopez at the New Promenade lobby. One click on the light switch set the entire Music Museum, Theater Mall, Promenade and Teatrino complex ablaze.

Sundance Film Festival Winner "Afternoon Delight"

Fresh from her remarkable hilarious role in the movie “We’re The Millers” with Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Hahn’s  talent shines through in her first starring role in “Afternoon Delight” about a stay at home mom whose sexual awakening came in her 30s when everything looks just perfect.  

Hahn plays Rachel, a quick-witted and lovable yet tightly coiled woman living within the affluent Silver Lake neighborhood.  At first glance, with their chic modern home, successful husband, adorable child and a hipster wardrobe, you’d think Rachel is living in full bliss until she felt the stabbing reality of emptiness when left alone at home and ponders on her lackluster sex life.

Korea's Horror Stories 2 showing in Manila on Nov. 27


Asia’s culture probably holds the creepiest of ghostly encounters based on true events due to the people’s dire need to connect with the spirits of their loved ones or someone who might reveal truths of unsolved mysteries. 
In the upcoming Korean movie “Horror Stories 2,” parallel to the country’s “Shake, Rattle and Roll” ghost stories, three stories of spirits come to life in an insurance company wherein they connect with the dead to find answers to fraudulent claims. But as each case is reopened, a dark shadow surges over them and grows stronger as the memories of the dead come to life.      
The movie starts to reveal dark spirits in the basement of an insurance company where an employee and her boss goes through old files for review.  The company’s manager named Park (played by Park Sung-Wong) discovers that his eccentric new employee Se-Young (Lee Se-Young) has an extraordinary ability to see past events that happened by connecting to any personal belongings  of the dead.  Park then uses Se-Young’s gift to unravel mysteries in their past insurance cases that were left unanswered.
The first of “Horror Stories 2” files entitled “Cliff” focuses on two friends who got stuck on a cliff for days until one of them fell of the cliff.  Days later, the real story behind the fall begins to surface as the survivor sees and hears horrifying images of his dead friend.
A car accident happens along the way in the episode “The Pain of Death” when three friends decide to go on a road trip heading to the mountains drunk after they failed on their teacher certification needed to apply for a job.   Along the way, the girls crashed in the dark isolated part of a sleepy town going to the mountains.  When they try to go back on the road bruised and bloodied, they find themselves in a place where they try to escape death waiting for them.
A trainee teacher tries to “Escape” from the shame caused by his students on his first day in school.  Brought about by mischievous students, Byeong-Shin (played by Ko Gyung-Pyo) finds himself in a series of humiliating situation that he cannot control.  In his desire to forget what happened, he is then transported to another dimension through black magic being practiced by one of his students.  But he soon finds out that he has stepped into a realm where no one has escaped before.
As the hidden stories are revealed from the files they thought to be fraudulent, Se-young notices that the dark shadows of the spirits sweeping through the room slowly casts over them but Mr. Park is too preoccupied to listen to Se-young’s warnings.
Rated R16, “Horror Stories 2” will open in cinemas on November 27 from Axinite Digicinema, Inc.

Life is all about moments and who you share it with. Adventures instantly become memorable because of the people involved, not really the activity done. Our barkada is often present in all of our take the plunge moments. Next to family, we share most of our time with members of barkada. Each group has different characters, often friends from childhood or school. Our barkadas are always fun to bring along to adventures simply because of the different personalities they bring to the table.

These personalities are what make each barkada distinct. While each group has identifying characteristics, each member has individual traits that contribute to the group dynamic.

Probably this year’s jaw-dropping crime thriller so far, “The Counselor” is both an amazing and devastating cautionary tale about greed helmed by no less than Academy-Award nominee director/producer Ridley Scott (“Alien,” Black Hawk Down,” “Prometheus,” “Hannibal”) and written by Pulitzer-Prize winner Cormac McCarthy who recent novels “All The Pretty Horses,” “No Country for Old Men,” “The Road” and “Child of God” have all been made into acclaimed major motion pictures.  

Filled with a sterling cast headed by Michael Fassbender in the titular role, “The Counselor”  also stars Academy-Award winning couple Javier Bardem and Penelope Cruz along with acclaimed blockbuster stars Brad Pitt and Cameron Diaz.
