PHINLA holds National Stakeholders Conference, calls for joint effort to continue improving solid waste management in the Philippines

Waste is a problem that has an impact on economics, the environment, and people's lives and livelihoods. Because a huge amount of garbage is openly disposed of or burnt in low-income nations, the poor and most vulnerable people suffer disproportionately.

Under the rapidly expanding urbanization, the solid waste management industry in emerging nations will experience rising strain. The pursuit for progress and economic growth by developing countries like the Philippines has resulted in the manufacture, distribution and use of products and generation of waste, more than half of which is openly dumped in landfill sites. This contributes to environmental degradation and poses negative implications to health and prosperity. 

In response, World Vision Development Foundation and EcoWaste Coalition, with funding from the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Global Development (BMZ), are implementing the PHINLA Project, a global program to develop livelihood for poverty affected population through a multi-sectoral established and monitored waste management system. PHINLA (an acronym for Philippines, Indonesia, and Sri Lanka where the program is being implemented) aims to assist the government in the implementation of the Ecological Solid Waste Management Act of 2000 and the National Framework Plan for the Informal Waste Sector in the Philippines, specifically in three pilot barangays in the country: Bagong Silangan in Quezon City; Cugman in Cagayan De Oro City; and Mintal in Davao City.

ChatGPT: Can it help AI-led cyberattacks?

Science, technology and all its components have strongly benefited the human race over generations. By definition, it is the search for new knowledge to improve the quality of life.  However, everything has the potential of being good or bad depending on the people who are behind it.

The relentless quest to mimic and decipher the human mind has ushered an era of Artificial Intelligence. ChatGPT, a text-based artificial intelligence (AI) bot has made headlines for its use of advanced AI. From accurately fixing a coding bug, generating cooking recipes, creating 3D animations, to composing entire songs, ChatGPT has showcased the mindblowing power of AI to unlock a world of incredible new possibilities and new risks.

Sony continues to revolutionize the industry with its new camera lens line-up

The Sony FE 20-70mm F4 G (SEL2070G)

Sony is redefining the standard zoom category of lenses with the introduction of the FE 20-70mm F4 G, known as the SEL2070G that boasts an ultra-wide 20-70mm zoom range in a remarkably compact, lightweight full-frame lens, with a constant F4 aperture throughout the zoom range.

With impressive G LensTM image quality, high-speed accuracy and tracking AF, and a smart design for maximum mobility and operability, this new lens is designed for a wide range of creators. The FE 20-70mm F4 G is the perfect choice for vlogging, movie production, and still portrait and landscape shots.

According to professional photographer and Sony Philippines Product Expert Nicco Valenzuela, the FE 20-70mm F4 G is comparably lighter and more compact than most standard zoom lenses with a constant aperture. As a photographer himself, this lens will be of significant help when packing camera equipment for shoots. There are also instances when photographers do not want to carry a separate ultra-wide angle lens with them, so the capability of the FE 20-70mm F4 G to go all the way to 20mm wide is really handy and offers significant versatility.

WATERWALK RECORDS releases “MANLILIKHARI,” the first single off 10-song series project, Sambahan

WATERWALK RECORDS announces the release of Sambahan, a 10-song series project that contains worship songs from grassroots, church-based songwriters who connected and collaborated through an unconventional ‘lab’ setting via the synergetic fellowship, KONEKOLAB.

Its first single, “MANLILIKHARI,” is a portmanteau of two words, which interestingly allude to that one Being who assumes both roles of a Manlilikha (Creator) and a Hari (King). As WATERWALK RECORDS A&R Jungee Marcelo puts it, “MANLILIKHARI” qualifies God’s sovereignty “over all creation, over everything, over you and me. It’s worthy of worship and adoration.”

Marcelo adds, “The word ‘create’ is very dear to us, and with this song we offer our highest praises to the true Creator, King of everything. “Konekolab Worship aims to cater to the needs of local church congregations for singable worship songs in the local vernacular. Who better to concoct these original worship songs than the very church people in the community. The hope is for each of these songs to become a staple in the church music lineup, as well as in personal times of devotion and prayer.”

Clara Benin opens 2023 with the release of When Harry Met Sally-inspired track “different…”

The acclaimed singer-songwriter takes rom-com to an entirely different level as she revels in the idea of ‘what-ifs’

2022 has been a great year for Clara Benin. Aside from getting featured on a Times Square billboard in New York ahead of the International Women’s Day, the folk darling received two nominations at the recently concluded 8th Wish Music Awards and collaborated with international artists such as British singer-songwriter Lowswimmer. On top of her achievements, Benin also dropped a song called "Affable Dork," which garnered rave reviews for "adopting a jazz-pop approach."

This year is no different for the prolific act, as she continues to delight Clarafied (her official fans club) with her remarkable consistency. Benin opens 2023 with a soothing tune that revels in the idea of ‘what ifs' and how it often sparks curiosity and wonder. Her new single, "different…" draws inspiration from a rom-com classic, a common theme among her last few releases.

"I wrote this song after being inspired by the movie, When Harry Met Sally," Benin admits. "My song "different…" is about having a really good friendship with someone and wondering if you two could take that relationship somewhere different."
