Award-winning actors Charlize Theron and Javier Bardem in “THE LAST FACE” – opens Sept. 13 exclusive at Ayala Malls Cinemas

For decades politics, power and corrupt governments scrambling for mineral rich territories, have given rise to civil war in Africa and created conflict zones where the scale of destruction is now unimaginable.

Hundreds and thousands of people have been slaughtered in military coups, are emotionally destroyed through rape and gender-based violence, and have been victims of unspeakable human rights violations. The civilians who have managed to survive the decimation have been forced to flee to safety from rebels sewing terror in their regions, making up more than 9 million refugees and internally displaced people without resources to form a new life. It is a suffering that knows no end. The motion picture “The Last Face” is brought to the screen by a group of filmmakers and actors who coincidentally all happen to be humanitarians in their own right and unquestionably this resonance was their motivation to work with very the difficult material.

The modern Juan paves the way for gender equality at home with Ariel’s #JuanWash

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.  

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.

Cloudfone Barges Into The Top 5 And Earns A Seat At The Big Boys Table

Amidst tough competition from foreign brands, smartphone and technology provider Cloudfone made it into the coveted Top 5 biggest smartphone brands in the country. This is according to market intelligence firm IDC (International Data Corporation), which this week released its much-awaited Asia/Pacific Quarterly Mobile Phone Tracker report for Q2 2017. Cloudfone now owns the 4th spot in the list of leading smartphone brands in the Philippines, keeping pace with global brands Samsung, Oppo and Vivo, as well as the incumbent local brand, Cherry Mobile.

By bringing advanced camera features, striking design and quality device performance to their products, Cloudfone has now become the phone of the millennials, giving them the best bang for their hard-earned money. IDC’s results validate that local brands can, through innovation and consumer understanding, compete against international giants with deep marketing pockets.
The IDC attributes Cloudfone’s growth to its marketing and promotion efforts “focused on sports events given its partnerships with NBA and PBA." The brand’s awesome come-from-behind performance shows that Filipinos appreciate good quality when they see it, especially if it’s from one of their own. Not only does Cloudfone make great technology available to everyone, but they also bring big global brands to the people as well by partnering and collaborating with the likes of the NBA, Microsoft, Google, Star Wars, Marvel, and Disney. Now, the average consumer can get a taste of these big global brands lifestyle at an affordable price. These efforts have allowed Cloudfone to successfully cross over from consumer electronics into the lifestyle space.
“We have always believed that Filipinos are discerning of real value. That is the driving force behind our motivation to offer premium features and high quality without the hefty price tag usually associated with high-end smartphones," says CellPrime CEO Eric Yu. 
Aside from ranking 4th place in the latest IDC Report, the GFK report also shows that Cloudfone recorded a 39-percent revenue growth and a 21-percent market share (in their target price band) from January to April 2017 as compared to the same period last year.

“These 3rd party reports show we are on track in our aim to make Cloudfone the leading local mobile-phone brand in the Philippines in 3 years’ time. We are inspired to use this momentum to positively disrupt the market with our new phone line-up with superior features comparable to other brands, delivering quality and durability without breaking the bank,” says Mr. Yu.
Even though Cloudfone may have already reached the winner’s circle, it seems they are not showing any signs of slowing down and won’t stop until the unexpected becomes the champ.
