This caravan of learning forums aims to empower Gen Zs by inviting young industry leaders to impart knowledge and motivation, and by providing them with a platform where they can share their thoughts about the things that matter to them.

 

Virtual Hangouts gave a sneak peek on what people can expect from Future Forward Summit through an online launch event last November 5 that also featured an interactive school fair platform complete with mini games and booths. Here, the Future Forward Preppers, or the first-class speakers for the summit, were revealed as well as the corresponding youth-oriented topics that they will discuss in their talks and masterclasses.

 

Globe Studios Head Quark Henares got the ball rolling last November 27 where he talked about the Future of Filmmaking and was followed by Crystal Gonzalez, CEO and Co-Founder of PICK.A.ROO, last December 5, where she shared her  insights on the Post College: Employee or Entrepreneur debate. Artist-designer Leeroy New also talked about Nurture Nature last December 10, and finally, JC Gallegos, Head and Co-Founder of Shoor, talked about The Future of Experience Economy last December 12.

There are also fun and educational experiences that will always await you on the Shoor platform such as a College Coffee Workshop that happened last December 5, Eco-Business last December 10, and even Singing Bee last December 12.

4 kitchen safety tips when using LPG

Always place your LPG cylinder in a well-ventilated area


4 kitchen safety tips when using LPG

As everyone continues to stay at home, people have been spending a lot of their time in the kitchen lately – from preparing daily meals and trying out new recipes, to cooking with the kids and of course, enjoying homecooked meals with the entire family. With this, kitchen safety is more important than ever, and it starts with securing all the tools and equipment, including making sure your LPG cylinders are safe and professionally installed.

Solane, a leading LPG provider in the country, offers these safety tips on the use of LPG to make cooking at home a safe and enjoyable experience.

Place the LPG cylinder in a well-ventilated area. When choosing a spot for your LPG cylinder, make sure that there is an opening, such as a window or a door, to ensure adequate ventilation. Make sure that LPG cylinders are also far away from other heat sources, electric outlets, and hazard-prone areas in the house to avoid ignition. Lastly, make sure that your LPG cylinder is in a secure and upright position.

Inspect the LPG cylinder. Upon delivery, carefully inspect your LPG tank to make sure that it is in good physical condition. First, check the cylinder for dents, cracks, corrosions, or other damages. Then, make sure that the safety cap and security seal are in place. If there seems to be a problem with any of the components, turn off the gas supply and have it replaced or repaired immediately. To make it easier, Solane offers customers a free 7-Point Safety Check. Through this extra precautionary step, Solane's well-trained riders help ensure that the tanks are safe and secure.

Use correct equipment and accessories. With LPG cylinders, ensure that you are using the correct hose by checking for the mark, "LPG Hose." Branded regulators,  such as RECA and TPA, are recommended because these are manufactured according to specific standards. When attaching the regulator, ensure that it is securely connected to the cylinder valve. The regulator knob should also be open to allow the outflow of gas from the holes. It’s also important to regularly check the condition of these two and replace them as needed. The hose should be replaced every 2 years while the regulator should be replaced every 5 years upon the date of manufacture.

Practice caution. Whether you are installing, using, or disconnecting your LPG cylinders, caution is a must. To avoid mishaps and injuries, you should also never attempt to fix, refill, or replace your cylinders without the help of authorized personnel. Don’t forget to turn off the cylinder valve or regulator and gas appliance when not in use. Follow the manufacturer's instructions regarding the use and maintenance of your gas appliance. In case of an emergency, try to eliminate all sources of sources of ignition and turn off the gas supply of the cylinder. If the leak is on the cylinder, cover the leaking portion with a wet rag.


Make sure your LPG is authentic. To help ensure the safety of your family, buy your LPG cylinders from authorized dealers only. In addition, when buying gas tanks, be sure to check for quality markings on the cylinders, such as the registered brand name and trademark of the manufacturer, standard used and test dates, the serial or code number, expiry date, tare weight and LPG content, and the “Made in the Philippines” mark.

For more information, visit https://www.solane.com.ph or follow @solane.ph on Facebook. To order Solane LPG, call 8887-5555 (Metro Manila) or text (0918) 887-5555 (nationwide).

Music Icons’ Stories on the True Meaning of Sharing this Season

 

Filipinos celebrate the longest Christmas season in the world. It comes with the age-old traditions, big family reunions, Kris Kringles with friends, extended shopping time for gifts, neighbourhood carols, and the nine nights of Simbang Gabi.

 

The present situation, with the pandemic and the natural calamities that have upended many lives, may have brought a feeling of uncertainty for many families. But there’s no stopping Christmas for the fun-loving and family-centered Filipinos. The indomitable spirit of the Filipino endures, and it is strongly affixed to traditional values of bayanihan and malasakit.

 

PLDT Home recently released its Christmas ad titled “Mine”, which highlights the joy of giving. It goes beyond than the mantra of ‘treating yourself’, to show that there is more satisfaction derived from treating others and sharing the spirit of the season, even more. The strong connection of PLDT Home enables Filipinos to extend help and give more hope to others through the different online platforms that are available.

 

Filipino music icons also expressed how the internet enables them to share their gifts and blessings this season of giving. National Artist for Music Maestro Ryan Cayabyab says that “The true meaning and joy of Christmas is sharing.” He adds, “For me, the joy of music and songs is what I can share this Christmas season.”

 

Powered by PLDT Home, sharing gifts and spending meaningful time with loved ones have become more convenient for families despite the social distance. Mr. Cayabyab notes, “With PLDT Home, we can all rediscover the joy of sharing this Christmas.”

 

Mr. Ryan Cayabyab: https://www.instagram.com/p/CIm0hm8HcDC/

 

For Asia’s songbird Regine Velasquez-Alcasid, what’s important is the happiness of her loved ones at home. She shares, “Nakakamiss din ang mamili ng pangregalo at panghanda para sa pasko. Bagamat iniisip ko din maging praktikal muna at magtipid bilang hindi natin alam hanggang kalian pa ito. Pero kasi tayong mga Pinoy kahit mahirap ang buhay, we are still able to celebrate Christmas. Bilang nanay gusto ko lang naman ay maging happy ang anak ko. Dahil ang pasko ay para naman talaga sa kanya.”

 

Ms. Regine Velasquez-Alcasid: https://www.instagram.com/p/CI7cYuYAwdI/

 

An artist and a father to three children, Franco Laurel says, “We are grateful this year that we are all together and safe at home.” He adds that for the family’s safety, their reunions and get-together with loved ones are now done virtually. He shares, “The great thing about doing all the Christmas parties virtual at home is the super high speed and reliable PLDT Home Fibr connection. Now it covers our whole house with fast internet connection.”

The true meaning of the season and its source of joy comes from caring for others and keeping the family together at home. This Christmas, it is time to rediscover the gift of sharing and re-establish the strong connections, not only to our family, but equally so, to the community.

P&G continues to be a force for good for communities this Christmas

 


P&G continues to be a force for good for communities this Christmas

 

MANILA PHILIPPINES – Procter & Gamble Philippines (P&G) is bringing comforts of home to communities by donating hygiene kits and products to thousands of families affected by Typhoons Rolly and Ulysses. The leading health and hygiene products manufacturer partnered with the Philippine Red Cross, World Vision Philippines, and the local governments of Marikina, Cabuyao and Taguig to bring relief to communities for Christmas.

 

“P&G has always believed in becoming a force for good and growth for the country, and this is especially true during the holiday season and after what the Philippines and the world have been through. For P&G, our hygiene brands are our main contribution to sharing comforts and experience of home to Filipino families this Christmas,” says Raffy Fajardo, President and General Manager of P&G Philippines.

 

P&G and its partners donated products to communities in Albay, Catanduanes, Cagayan, Isabela, and the cities of Marikina, Cabuyao, and Taguig. Philippine Red Cross will distribute 4,000 hygiene packs for families in Cagayan and Isabela, while World Vision hygiene gift packs will reach over 3,000 families in Albay and Catanduanes.

 

On top of providing relief for affected communities, P&G continues to extend this care for its employees, the company’s number one priority, amid the difficult times. The company launched the Alagang P&G program, which aims to care for its workforce. On top of ensuring their health and safety with various benefits, P&G’s Vibrant Living wellness program was redesigned to champion the new work-from-home lifestyle in the better normal. The program introduced online classes and programs on fitness, mental health, and even spiritual recollections.

 

For frontliners, P&G repurposed its manufacturing operations in Cabuyao, Laguna to fulfill its pledge with the DOH and partner health institutions to produce one million medical-grade face masks, which has now been doubled to benefit more medical frontliners who continue to need PPEs. The Safeguarding the Front-liners program gave hygiene kits to over 15,000 frontliners and 5,000 PPE suits to COVID-19 hospitals in Metro Manila and Laguna at the beginning of ECQ in March.

 

P&G also collaborated with the Department of Health (DOH) and the US Agency for International Development (USAID) to launch a nationwide education campaign for better health habits called BIDA Solusyon sa COVID-19 which has also won P&G three special awards from PANAta Awards by the Philippine Association of National Advertisers (PANA).

 

“Even before the pandemic, P&G has always been guided by our core principles of caring for our employees as our number one priority, serving our consumers with our trusted and essential health and hygiene brands and stepping up for communities in need. This is something we have strongly committed to and we will continue to do in the coming new year as a force for good and a force for growth for the country,” says Raffy.

Shop for gifts and reward yourself this holiday season with Robinsons Rewards

Despite how crazy the year has been, the arrival of the holidays is something that has been keeping Filipinos hopeful and excited. After all, ‘tis the season to be joyful and grateful for being able to stay safe with loved ones and overcoming the challenges brought by 2020. While Christmas celebrations are going to be different this year, many are still looking forward to doing their gift shopping for friends and family.

 

Here are some useful tips and reminders to help make holiday shopping safe and stress-free:

 

Plan and create a Christmas list

Just like how Santa has his own registry of names, shoppers can also make their own list of who to give presents to and what kinds of gifts they would like. Make it organized by grouping them into categories such as immediate family members, loved ones, friends, and even inaanak (godchildren). This makes it easier and saves time when browsing for gifts, and helps make sure that no one is left behind without any presents.

 

Add to online cart

People are still encouraged to stay safe indoors, especially that the threat of the pandemic is still looming around. While there may be items that can only be purchased in-store, it is wise to check online shopping sites to see if they carry what you are looking for.  It’s also convenient because there is the option of having the gift delivered straight to the receiver - just make sure that it’s not cash on delivery so they won’t be surprised! In Robinsons Rewards App, you can browse and shop for gift options and earn points from ecommerce sites like GoRobinsons, Shopwise, Toys”R”Us, Marketplace, and Robinsons Appliances.

 

Be on the lookout for sales and get online coupons

Another benefit of shopping online is that shoppers can save money by availing deals and discounts! Many brands are doing Christmas sales. If you’re looking for new devices such as phones, laptops, or tablets, you can check out the Aerophone discount promo for Robinsons Rewards members.


Redeem points from your rewards programs

And who says you should only give gifts to others? For an extra rewarding shopping experience, you can also treat yourself to a present that you deserve with Robinsons Rewards. Members who have earned enough points can use it to pay for any product that they want at Robinsons stores - whether it’s a new bag, another set of trendy shoes, or the latest fashionable clothing items.

 

Meanwhile, those who have yet to join the rewards program can start earning points through their purchases by downloading the Robinsons Rewards mobile app and signing up for free. They can also go to their nearest Robinsons store and buy a Robinsons Rewards Card at the Customer Service/Cashier for only Php 100.

 

To redeem or transact with points, just simply present your phone and scan the merchant QR code using the Robinsons Rewards app or scan barcode on the Robinsons Rewards Classic Card.

 

So what are you waiting for? It’s the perfect time to shop, earn, and use those hard-earned Robinsons Rewards points to treat yourself for a job well done this year. The Robinson Rewards app is available for free download via iOS App Store, Google Play Store, and Huawei App Gallery.
