New Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for the Ferrari 458 Speciale

New MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires
to exclusively equip the new Ferrari 458 Speciale

MICHELIN Philippines Chief Representative Michael Nunag announced today that MICHELIN continues to be the exclusive worldwide supplier of tires for the new Ferrari 458 Speciale.

In developing the alliance between the new MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 tire and the new Ferrari sports car, the tire manufacturer and the carmaker pooled their cutting-edge engineering resources, wheel assembly expertise, passion for performance, measuring technology and the skills and analytical capabilities of their developers and test drivers.

The simultaneous co-development of the tire and the car, through tests on both the simulator and the track, led to superior performance in three specific areas that were identified prior to the start of the project: faster lap time on dry asphalt, consistent performance lap after lap and optimal grip on wet roads.

In short, the MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 tire is an integral part of the new Ferrari 458 Speciale and a key component of its exceptional performance.

Tire sizes for the new Ferrari 458 Speciale:

MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2

245/35 ZR 20 91 Y in the front

305/30 ZR 20 103 Y in the rear

Languido returns, takes MILO Marathon CDO crown from Sotto

Languido returns, takes MILO Marathon 
CDO crown from Sotto
36 runners qualify for season finale in December

Despite the heavy downpour mid-race, veteran runner Juneil Languido persevered and dethroned last year’s local 21K top placer Jeffrey Sotto Sunday at the 37th National MILO Marathon Cagayan de Oro qualifying race. Local bet Cresabel Cadion, who placed first in 2011, also forged a victory against her closest pursuers and managed to take back the CDO crown that was once hers. A total of 11,785 runners, including Region X Governor Bambi Emano who ran 5K, graced the tenth qualifying leg of the prestigious nationwide race, marking not only a higher headcount in the regional competition but also the continued support of the local government.

Languido and Cadion each received the Php 10,000 top purse for their respective victories, and are set to lead 34 other 21K qualifiers to the finale in December. This is Languido’s fourth trip to the MILO Marathon National Finals, following a seventh place finish in the finale last year.  As an added incentive to this year’s winnings, MILO will be sending this season’s MILO Marathon King and Queen to the 2014 Paris Marathon to compete with the world’s finest athletes.

Ben Affleck plays online gambling kingpin in "RUNNER RUNNER"

Ben Affleck in Runner Runner

Despite the risks – statistical and criminal – online gambling holds innumerable attractions.   In today's post-economic-meltdown world, young people have fewer job options than ever before. But that hasn't done anything to affect their desire to get-rich-quickly.  This generation – consumers from early childhood – is used to getting what they want, when they want it, with the click of a mouse.

“Runner Runner” depicts the risks of this reality starring Ben Affleck, Justin Timberlake and Gemma Arterton where Timberlake plays Princeton grad and former Wall Street star Richie Furst, who believes he’s been swindled by an online poker organization based in Costa Rica. He decides to head to Central America to confront the owner, Affleck’s Ivan Block, and is soon seduced by the promise of immense wealth. As Block’s right-hand man he uncovers more than he bargains for, and is soon juggling loyalties and trying to stay alive.

Keep your car safe in rainy weather with Michelin

Michelin, the tires for you

Flash floods, zero visibility, cold starts, loose brakes, rusted parts. These are the bane that the rainy season brings to car owners and motorists.

Filipino drivers have no choice but to deal with these challenges because of the number and frequency of typhoons and monsoon rains for the large part of the year. Because vehicles are made of metal, they suffer the most during this wet, wild and rust-producing season.

Vettel in absolute control in Italy; all set for Singapore

Sebastian Vettel sped into his third straight win in Monza

Italy, September 8 – Over in Monza, Sebastian Vettel was blessed with another perfect weekend, scoring two 40’s. It puts him 25 less than Ayrton Senna’s career poles, and 28 short of Michael Schumacher, but at just 26 years old, it’s likely just a matter of time for him to match those achievements.

Vettel made good use of his pole position, launching off the line flawlessly and employing a one-stop strategy to distance himself from the pack. Despite Fernando Alonso’s best efforts, he couldn’t stop the young German, having to settle for second, just ahead of Red Bull’s Mark Webber. This victory marks the fortieth for the Red Bull team.

Intel sees Humans as the Ultimate Mobile Platform

Humans the Ultimate Mobile Platform

There is not one mobile future, but 7 billion futures, said Intel Fellow and anthropologist Dr. Genevieve Bell at the Intel Developer Forum today. Describing how the human being has always been,and will continue to be, the ultimate mobile platform, Bell illustrated how mobile technology has historically been used to extend our bodies and physical reach, augment our deficienciesand increase our capacity to get things done. 

“Mobility technology has been transforming human society forcenturies. Its future will be influenced not only by the shrinking size of computing technologydue to Moore’s Law, but also by global population growth,”Bell said.“Our inspiration should come not only from the invention of new technology ingredients, but alsofrom the needs and desires of human beings. It’s not one future we are shaping – it’s 7 billion futures, and counting.”

Gemma Arterton stars alongside Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake in “Runner Runner” wherein her role as Rebecca Shafran is entangled in the cutthroat world of online gambling.
“Runner Runner” explores the multi-billion dollar industry of online gambling where all players are supposed to have their share, in any which way possible.  Affleck takes on the role of gambling kingpin Ivan Block while Timberlake is Richie Furst, a brilliant Princeton grad student on his way to finishing his masters.  Furst, in order to further finance his studies takes commissions from online gambling operators and risks playing online too for additional money.  When Richie betted all of his savings and lost it to Block’s operations, he soon finds out that he’s been tricked.  Determined to recollect his tuition money, he heads to Costa Rica to confront Block about his malicious online practices.  Soon thereafter, Richie falls for Block’s associate –sophisticated COO Rebecca Shafran (Gemma Arterton) – and he embraces a world that sees all of his fantasies come to life.  But Richie soon learns that Block is wanted for racketeering, extortion and bribery, and that FBI Special Agent Shavers (Anthony Mackie) is obsessed with bringing Block and his associates to justice.
