The National Nutrition Council launches “10 Kumainments” for Pinoys’ healthy lifestyle

Now, Filipinos from every walk of life can find ways to get healthy and be nutritionally well by following very simple guidelines drawn up by the National Nutrition Council (NNC) of the Department of Health (DOH).

The “10 Kumainments” -- a campaign to promote the Nutritional Guidelines for Filipinos -- was launched by the NNC at the “3rd National Conference of Nutrition Action Officers" held at the SMX Convention Center in Pasay City on October 23, 2014.

The 10 Kumainments are the popularized versions of the Nutritional Guidelines for Filipinos (NGF) approved by the NNC Governing Board to promote a healthy lifestyle among Pinoys. The nutritional guidelines aim to address and prevent malnutrition and diet-related non-communicable diseases such as cancer, diabetes and cardiovascular diseases.

Real life pals star in buddy comedy "Let's be Cops"

A wrongheaded visit to a masquerade party changes everything for best friends Justin and Ryan in “Let’s Be Cops.”  Thinking it is a costume bash, Justin and Ryan sport LAPD uniforms Justin had used in his recent video game pitch. After being laughed out of the black tie party, they notice something has changed as they walk down the streets of Hollywood: women swarm them, bad guys follow their every command and bartenders give them drinks on the house, all because they are mistaken for cops.

Noomi Rapace: Wounded soul in "The Drop"

Tom Hardy heads up a phenomenal cast along with actress Noomi Rapace, the late James Gandolfini and Matthias Shoenaerts in “The Drop,” a gripping tale of crime and passion where Bob (Hardy) works as a bartender at his cousin Marv’s (Gandolfini) bar and crosses paths with Nadia (Rapace) that unearths the depth of human frailties leading to an explosive, emotional turns never before bared.

Acclaimed director Michaël Roskam assembled an international cast for his American film debut,  he says was not specifically looking for European actors to headline this film. “But when I found them, it made sense. New York is a city full of nomads. It’s a gateway to the rest of the world. There are so many nationalities represented here. Probably 40 percent of the people I met during location scouting spoke with an accent that wasn’t purely Brooklyn.”

Wannabes undergo Police training in “LET’S BE COPS”

“Let’s Be Cops” trails down-on-luck best buddies Justin Miller (Damon Wayans, Jr.) and Ryan O’Malley (Jake Johnson) have been languishing since their school days ended. Justin toils at a videogame company, where his bosses prefer zombie antics instead of Justin’s recent game proposal that features real-life cops. Ryan, still reveling in his glory days as a college quarterback, bounces from job to job – his appearance in a herpes drug commercial was a career highlight – without success.  Until a wrong turn at a masquerade party where they dressed as cops turn out to be their best night ever.

“The two lead characters have no money and their self-worth is gone,” says director/co-writer Luke Greenfield. “Then, all of a sudden, they are street heroes. Their fun masquerade escalates to the point where it starts getting dangerous and they mess with the wrong people.”
The first thing the filmmakers did after getting the production green light was cast the lead characters, Justin and Ryan. They chose two comic actors who were actually close pals.

KD7 On the Road: It’s a Journey

Kevin Durant’s journey on the road has brought him around the world and back multiple times as he enters his eighth year in the pros. Durant has logged roughly 225 hours of playing time in away games since entering the league, which has prepared him well for the demands of road trips. 
As reigning MVP on one of the league’s most successful road teams, Durant has faced a fair share of opposing crowds. The pressure builds character, and Durant has welcomed the pressure with open arms. 

“Success is not a destination, it's a journey,” said Durant. “I approach each road game like a business trip where we have a job to do — this is part of the journey.”

Money hardly ever stays in place in the much-anticipated crime thriller “The Drop” where an unusual love story is set in the midst of an organized crime’s unbreakable grip on small pubs and taverns used as money-laundering “drops.”

When it came to casting the new fantasy-adventure “The Book of Life,” director Jorge Gutierrez and producer Guillermo del Toro knew they would need a specific voice for the role of the town hero Joaquin. As the male counterpoint to the soulful Manolo (voiced by Diego Luna), he is both the best friend and romantic rival for the heart of Maria (voiced by Zoë Saldana). The two roles not only put a new spin to the classic “Prince Charming” type, they also represent the two sides of what it is to be a hero: the poet and the muscle.

Channing Tatum’s ascent to stardom has been built on roles that offered both archetypes at once, a key reason why he was sought for the character of Joaquin. With “The Book of Life,” Tatum was thrilled to finally enter the arena of animation in a lead role.  And, when the role was pitched to the actor by Gutierrez, Tatum responded eagerly to the director’s impassioned telling of “The Book of Life.”  “When we pitched Channing the movie, he loved it and was laughing the entire time,” says Gutierrez.  “And then he took me aside and said, ‘You know I’m not Mexican, right?’  We had a big laugh, and Channing just jumped in and made Joaquin his own.”  Tatum further shares in the following q&a the fun and unforgettable experience in voicing Joaquin.
