Microsoft Cloud Summit Helps ISV Partners Bring Innovative and Disruptive Solutions to the Philippine Market


Wazzup Pilipinas!

As businesses in the Philippines are embracing the cloud to make them highly competitive, Microsoft and its independent software vendor (ISV) partners have staged cloud application solutions for various industries during the Cloud Solutions Summit at the Blue Leaf Filipinas, Parañaque City.

The Cloud Solutions Summit has helped executives and business owners discover how embracing the hybrid cloud model can help IT manage increasing security and complexity in line with changing business needs. This event followed Microsoft’s recent general availability of Windows Server 2016 and System Center 2016 in the Philippines, which are directed at helping enterprises accelerate moves to the highly secure hybrid cloud.

At the event, Microsoft and its ISV partners showcased cloud application solutions for manufacturing, retail, banking, healthcare and small & medium enterprise (SME) sectors for businesses to jumpstart their digital transformation journey. Participating ISVs presented their cloud app pitches similar to the “Shark Tank” reality TV show, with My-Checkpoints emerging as winner. My-Checkpoints (https://www.my-checkpoints.com/help/aboutus.html) is a performance and rewards platform developed for BPO companies designed to provide fun incentives and rewards to their employees.

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Akbayan Senator Risa Hontiveros’ explanation of vote on the Philippines’ ratification of membership to the China-led Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB)
"Mr. President, I have refused to sign the resolution ratifying the Philippines’ accession to the Articles of Agreement of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank.

This is because, before becoming a member of another international financial institution, we should put our house in order by verifying whether the loan agreements our country has entered into with these institutions are in accordance with the principles on responsible sovereign lending and borrowing published by the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development.

Among others, these principles make lenders responsible for making realistic assessments of the sovereign borrower’s capacity to service a loan based on the best available information and following objective and agreed technical rules on due diligence and national accounts.

Lenders are also made responsible for performing their own ex ante investigation into and, when applicable, post-disbursement monitoring of, the likely effects of the project, including its financial, operational, civil, social, cultural, and environmental implications.

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The stars came out to sparkle and shine at the Promenade and Theater Mall on Tuesday, November 15.

Over a thousand small and big lanterns lit up one by one at the traditional Christmas Lighting Ceremony of Greenhills Promenade and Theater Mall, and this year, a star-studded cast participated in the countdown.

Encantadia star Sanya Lopez, Destiny Rose star Ken Chan, heartthrob Hiro Peralta, hunk Jak Roberto, model Mac Manicad, and veteran stars Tirso Cruz III, Carla Martinez, Donita Rose and Director Gina Alajar were on hand to press the button that would turn on the Christmas lights and lanterns. John Nite, co-star of the late German “Kuya Germs” Moreno in his Saturday show “Walang Tulugan”, merrily played event host for the night.

In the past, German “Kuya Germs” Moreno made it a point to glam up the Promenade Greenhills Christmas ritual by bringing along showbiz friends and alagas like Gloria Romero, Barbie Forteza, Jake Vargas, Bea Binene and others. This year, his “alagas” carried on the tradition on his behalf.

Pedestrian Bridge sa Terminal 3 Malaking Maitutulong sa Trapiko at Pasahero sa NAIA T3


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Ikinatuwa ng Department of Transportation ang pag-usad ng proyektong “pedestrian bridge” na magdudugtong sa NAIA Terminal 3 at Newport City.

Sa pamamagitan ng tulay na ito, maari nang bumaba sa Newport City ang isang pasaherong may biyahe sa Terminal 3 at gamitin ang pedestrian bridge sa halip na umikot ang sasakyan sa rotunda sa dulo ng Andrews Avenue.

Maari itong makabawas ng sasakyan sa Andrews Avenue.

May elevator mula sa baba na kakabit sa Newport mall patungo sa pedestrian bridge.

Airconditioned ang pedestrian bridge at may walkalator ito sa kabuuang 220 metro.

Ayon sa Travellers International Hotel Group na syang gumawa ng proyekto, ang kapasidad ng pedestrian bridge ay 2-libo katao. Sa isang araw kaya nitong mag lipat ng 216-libong katao (216,000 people).

Kapag nabuksan na sa Abril 2017, ito ay libre sa publiko, at bukas 24 oras, 7 araw kada linggo.

Sa inspeksyon ni DOTr Sec Art Tugade at DPWH Sec Mark Villar kanina, idiniin nila ang kahalagahan ng kaligtasan sa paggawa at siguraduhing hindi makaka-antala sa trapiko ang konstruksyon.

Philippines: Parul & Maggie Aim to Stay in the Game


Wazzup Pilipinas!

It’s the eighth leg of The Amazing Race Asia and teams must depart Singapore and head to Yogyakarta, Indonesia where they must make their way to Jomblang Cave to retrieve their next clue. The first team that reaches the Garuda Indonesia check-in counter in Singapore gets special access to the Garuda lounge.

JK & Mike are first to reach the airport and they decide to gift the special access to the other teams via a simple lucky draw. Rona & Eric win the pick of the draw and they gleefully make full use of the lounge.

“What a bunch of sweethearts!” exclaimed Eric, touched by their action.

At Yogyakarta, the teams rush out to grab a taxi to Jomblang Cave. Drama ensues as Treasuri & Louisa squeeze through the other teams and forcefully get their tickets first. The other teams look on with disdain and shock.

“We have a pact with Eric and Rona, and that’s to get rid of Treasuri and Louisa. That’s the goal,” says Parul and Maggie revealing their strategy.

While the other teams make their way to Jomblang Cave, Eric & Rona have to perform their Speed Bump penalty to make up for the last leg’s non-elimination. At this Speed Bump, Eric & Rona have to drink a traditional Indonesian herbal concoction while being blindfolded and guess which one it is. The duo bravely down the concoction and using its bitter taste as a gauge, they manage to guess the correct bottle in just a few minutes. 

Another Top Podium Finish for Team Suzuki Pilipinas as the SAC Concludes


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Team Suzuki Pilipinas once again made the country proud as they conclude the Race 2 of the last leg of the Suzuki Asian Challenge (SAC) at the top spot. The Philippine national anthem was played for the first time at the Chang International Circuit in Buriram, Thailand as Mario Borbon gave the Philippines its very first win in motor sports at the said track. This is also Team Suzuki Pilipinas’ 2nd championship title at the SAC this season. 

Team Suzuki Pilipinas’ performances have improved greatly over the months. With a podium win at every leg of the race, they proved to be a strong force to reckon with. Held last December 2 to 4, 2016, the team showed an overall impressive race. 

30 year-old Mario Borbon proved that his years of experience and perseverance at the race track will one day bring him his 1st top position at the SAC podium finishing with a time of 2:16.781. Coming from behind during the practice race, the Visayas rider showed his improvement during Race 1 as he led the pack in one of the laps of the race. More hopeful on the second and final round, he was able to maintain a good position during the race together with EJ Sobretodo who was also leading during the 5th and 6th lap. However, Sobretodo crashed due to a collision with a Sri Lankan rider during his last turn leaving Borbon to lead the remaining of the race. 

Meanwhile, the very strong Mindanao rider April King Mascardo managed to stay at the 6th Place. Sobretoto, Mascardo and Borbon’s final standing is at 5th, 6th and 7th place respectively. The final round of the SAC ended gloriously for Team Suzuki Pilipinas with a sweet victory for our fellow Filipinos. -

Okay na si Lolo: Coca-Cola Agos Program Brings Renewed Hope to War Survivor


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Japanese airplanes were dropping bombs across Pili, Camarines Sur. People in the city fled the plains and went to different areas to save themselves, to save their families. Some ran to the fields, while the others decided to settle and create homes near or at the mountains. However, the safety of one’s life had a price to pay: there was no water.

Barangay Del Pilar is one of the communities that cradled the families who escaped the horrors of those bombings. Located at the upper section of the mountain in Baao, Camarines Sur, it is divided into three zones. As of 2014, it has become home to a total of 75 households, with a population of 384.

Among the residents is Cenederio Lopez. He is 74 years old, lives alone, and has never left Del Pilar since he was born. More than knowing the barangay like the back of an old friend’s hand, he never imagined in his lifetime that water would someday become easily available to them.

“It was really a sacrifice just to fetch water,” Lolo Cenederio shares. He recalls that it was a daily dilemma for most of his life, rooting back to when he was still a child. Whenever his family would run out of water, his father and older brothers would be up before the crack of dawn to fetch water with their containers and a carabao. Years later, it was still a problem, and it became part of the routine that Lolo Cenderio became accustomed to.

Because of his old age, he could no longer hike the way he did when he was younger. What he would do is to buy a water container worth PhP20 from his neighbors, however, this exchange came with a price, he still needed to do an hour’s worth of walking. The situation was simple: he either walked and carried the containers on his shoulders, or there would be no water at all.

An Abusive and Toxic Relationship


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Akbayan Senator Risa Hontiveros' statement on VP Robredo's decision to resign as HUDCC Chair

I fully support Vice President Leni Robredo's decision to resign from President Rodrigo Duterte's cabinet. It was an abusive and toxic relationship, after all.

From the start, Vice President Robredo was not given enough support to fully exercise her task as the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council (HUDCC) Chairperson. As if by design, she was intended to fail. Worse, as a woman, she was disrespected and objectified on many occasions, by no less than the President himself. Her way of dressing was made object of sexist remarks, she was subjected to inappropriate advances and was even reduced to well-rounded knees.

Even the manner on how the Vice President was ordered not to attend future Cabinet meetings was intolerably disrespectful of the position she holds. It was cavalier and reeked of machismo. It was meant to denigrate Vice President Robredo one last time. It was meant to show that she is unworthy of the Chief Executive's time and any serious consideration.

Of course President Duterte has all the right to remove people from his Cabinet whom he thinks are incapable of implementing his brand of governance. The President and Vice President's "irreconcilable differences" are plain enough.

Yet, while others were removed for their inadequacies, Vice President Robredo was barred from future cabinet meetings because she dared oppose the burial of former President Ferdinand Marcos in the Libingan ng mga Bayani, extra-judicial killings, reimposition of death penalty, lowering the age of criminal liability, and misogynistic attacks against women. She was punished for doing the right things.

I also worry that a Cabinet where a healthy divergence of opinion is not allowed is just an old boys’ club. This demonstrates once more President Duterte's intolerance for dissent.

I stand with Vice President Robredo in her fight to defend human rights, freedom and democracy. I also join her in safeguarding the will of the people from dark forces that want to steal the Vice Presidency, rewrite history and restore a corrupt and authoritarian past.

I am confident that the public is behind the Vice President too. The people will more than make up for the support President Duterte and his Cabinet failed to give her. Vice President Robredo has fallen from the Cabinet into the arms of the people.

Rara: Art and Tradition of Mat Weaving in the Philippines Book Launch



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Pateros, the little municipality situated in the middle of three big and flourishing cities - Pasig, Taguig and Makati. As what Elmer Nocheseda jokingly said during his talk at his Rara book launch held on November 30, 2016 at Villa Monica in Pateros, we may have a hard time finding certain establishments within the municipality using the Waze app.

The Rara book launch was a celebration not only to announce to the public the availability of the new book, but also to honor and pay tribute to the book author and historian who neatly documented the facts about mat weaving in the country.

The Philippines is so full of creatively talented individuals that has contributed in putting us in the global map - meaning, we have become synonymous to where achievers and leaders mostly originate. It is not only in boxers or beauty queens that has made us famous in the yes of the world, but also with the presence of artists like painters, sculptors, theater actors, writers, and a lot more. The Philippines has a lot more to offer than Pinoy teleseryes or blockbuster mainstream movies with rehashed and repetitive plots.

Elmer Nocheseda, or you may know him as Elmer Gragera-Ibañez Hernandez-Nocheseda on Facebook, is a mat cognoscente and an inveterate researcher. He has recently released his third book entitled Rara: Art and Tradition of Mat Weaving in the Philippines.

Tech Tips to Help Students Study Smarter


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Technology is rapidly developing, and it is used pretty much everywhere. It helps us extensively with our work, studies, and entertainment. Difficult to imagine modern life without gadgets.

The concept of education has received some alterations as well, with online courses gaining more popularity as the choice method of accumulating more knowledge.

Studying habits have to adapt to keep up with the times as well. Having a laptop or a tablet is a tremendous asset to college and university students, since compiling and reviewing massive amounts of information is not an easy task. Especially if done manually. The internet helps with that aspect immensely, but it can also prove to be a common distraction.

Some of these developments prompted educational institutions to perform changes of their owns; with libraries being switched over to digital formats. The need to visit a traditional library is gone, no longer are you required to rummage through countless books and carry them around like dead weight. A perk of the digital age! You can go online and find what you need without any hassle whatsoever; it is very convenient.

You are given these tools and options, and they are great if you intend to study harder. But, studying harder does not always mean becoming smarter as a result.

So, how does one study "smarter?"

The main crux of it is to ease the life of a student by using technology and cool, creative, yet simple techniques.

How to Crush it on CouchSurfing


Wazzup Pilipinas!

Traveling is one of the most life-affirming activities ever to exist. It can truly be a rush, adapting to a new setting and circumstances. There is no better substitute if you wish to broaden your horizons, learn about distant cultures and meet new people.

We gravitate towards new experiences, and couch surfing allows to do just that.

Ever since the dawn of time, hotels existed for a reason — to provide lodging for weary travelers and to become a financial burden for tourists. Hotels are expensive, especially when the vacation season is in full swing.


You have friends all over the world. You just haven't met them yet.

And it all starts by finding a couch. In a different country. That belongs to a perfect stranger.

CouchSurfing aims to provide an alternative to expensive accommodations. It is a system, a tool and an app that allows users to organize and provide "surfing" or homestay options to like-minded people all around the world. It is both a social media site and an accommodation sharing service.

Every single user is encouraged to complete their profile page and provide useful information about themselves. This, in turn, creates a database that allows guests to browse it and find a suitable host who will provide short-term bedding.

The biggest difference that separates CouchSurfing from other accommodation services like Airbnb is that CouchSurfing is free of charge. Guests are not required to compensate hosts for the lodging; homestay is provided at no cost.
But in some cases, it doesn't stop people with relentless entrepreneurial spirits.
I'll provide more details on the topic of dangers, nuances, and peculiarities, but a bit later.


What is CouchSurfing good for?

CouchSurfing fills a particular niche, like those services which provide an answer to common plights like "Help me write my essay." Reduced strain on your pockets means that you will get to enjoy both the social and the traveling aspect a bit more freely.

A refreshing development, since many capitals of the world aren't regarded as being cheap, but their allure is sometimes too strong to deny. Some of them are vital to visit at least once in a lifetime. In any case, you can't put a price on cultural exchange and enjoyable experiences.

Since getting the complete picture of the service at a cursory glance is nearly impossible, here are a few pointers you need to keep in mind if you intend to become a guest or a host. This article aims to shed light on the exciting topic of CouchSurfing.
You won't be spending a small fortune to stay at the hotel, so CouchSurfing is ideal for students and young adults.



So what does it do?

You gain the ability to find a host from a functionality standpoint easily.

You can use the service to contact the host and ask them to provide a short-term homestay. That is how the site functions, you will be staying with locals who will graciously offer you a room or an apartment.

Great so far, since you get to meet new people and make friends. On top of that, you will gain additional insight and understand more about the place you're staying at.

But there may be a downside to that, by co-living in a house or an apartment of your host, you become more reliant on them and their daily routine.
You will, most certainly, have to adapt your sleeping and other habits to fit their regime. Won't be a problem if you share interests with them, however.

Even though finding a place to stay can be easy from a technical standpoint, you may need to spend an inordinate amount of time to find a "perfect" host. It doesn't matter if it's a major city or a more modest one in scale, this concept applies either way.


Some Apartments Can Be Misrepresented

Even though hosts usually provide detailed information on the state of their apartment or a house, some people tend to omit this. The state of rooms can vary widely. Some hosts may even think that having a small hammock for a bed is sufficient enough. Be sure to examine photos before deciding on a host.

Continuing on the topic of habits and culture differences, some hosts may have a tendency to do something out of the ordinary. A difference of culture, eccentricity or a wicked sense of humor — you decide. But be prepared that they will walk around scantily clad, drinking and swearing. It may not even be a significant disadvantage, but be ready for hilarious interactions in any case. And potential harassment, but this mostly applies to unaccompanied females.


What is essential to keep in mind?

Before you start using the service and get all the benefits of surfing couches, you are required to register on the website.
Millions of people have already provided their details to participate in the system.
But like any other system, there are rules and regulations. To get the most out of CouchSurfing, you may need to put in some additional effort. Here are a few defining details for hosts and guests alike.

1) Feedback
Recommendations, reviews, feedback and responses build a foundation on how the guest perceives a host.
Misrepresentation is always a risk, but a person with no feedback can be just as charming and entertaining as people with countless reviews.
Minimize your risks by actually reading up on the person. 

2) Fill in Additional Details
If you want to become a host, it is vital to input personal information like gender, age, etc. Photos of yourself and your apartment will help greatly. Try putting some personality in your photos, that way other potential guests can see that you're a person just like everyone else.

3) Reply Rate and Reply Time
Reply rate is displayed as a percentage, it tells how good the host is at responding to requests, and response time tells how long it usually takes.

Don't draw premature conclusions just yet; those numbers depend on the location of the host. If it's a major tourist destination, they physically may not be able to respond promptly.

4) Languages
There are many languages spoken all over the world. But when it comes to Couchsurfing, your main means of communication will most certainly be English. If the host doesn't share a language with you, there may be alarge barrier in communication. Make sure that your host/guest speaks your language, it a prerequisite for an enjoyable stay.

5) Personal Approach
Requests are usually sent in by guests a few days before departure. If you end up sending it a couple of months in advance, you may be met with an indefinite "I don't know."

Since you will be spending time with a person you barely know, why not find out some relevant details about them in your request?

Mass produced requests have a high rejection rate. So make sure to personalize your emails. Be polite, respectful and speak to your host on a first name basis.

Tell a bit about yourself; it will be a huge bonus if you share interests with them. And always remember about etiquette.
Leaving and receiving references is a huge part of the process.

So, in summary, if you like to travel, meet people and enjoy authentic local lifestyles. CouchSurfing may just be the thing for you. No matter the capacity you want to fill on CouchSurfing, by being a guest or a host, remember to represent yourself adequately. Exercise caution and safety in everything you do. Have fun!

Air Travel - Advantages and Disadvantages



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Humanity never lost its ability to dream and always wanted to achieve that which was impossible at first. Flight is one such thing. Countless myths and legends are based around the idea of flying - like that of Daedelus and Icarus. History of flight is extensive and filled with incredible mishaps and breakthroughs. From initial efforts in ancient China to Leonardo Da Vinci's flying machine and to the legacy of Wright brothers - who are known for the first recorded flight in 1903. All of these developments are significant in illustrating the strong desire humankind had, the urge to stop being bound to the ground and explore unseen heights.

Ever since humanity learned to fly air transport improved by leaps and bounds, in massive increments.

Aerial vehicles have particular uses now — military and transportation.

Many varieties if air transport were developed over the years — helicopters, planes that range from small ones like Cessnas to huge airliners like the Airbus and to military marvels like the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird (it holds the record as the fastest aircraft for about 40 years at this point).

The less conventional ones – hang gliders, hot air balloons, zeppelins, blimps, and parachutes - can also be used as a means of transportation, but for the sake of this article their characteristics will not be included in the advantage/disadvantage rundown.

When it comes to traveling, every kind of transport comes with its set of pros and cons. 


What are the advantages of air transport?

Speed, Mobility, and Punctuality

Airliners are not balloons or blimps. The have a streamlined design, and powerful jet engines allow them to reach tremendous speeds. Cruise liners travel at around 80% of Mach 1 (M1 is the speed of sound – 1,236 km/h; 768 mph).

No land vehicle can come close to air transport regarding sheer speed and consistency.

Maglev (magnetic levitation) trains and railways can get very fast, but they're still not there yet and won't be for quite some time.

Speed is a factor not only due to jet engines, but there are also no roads or limiting factors in terms of mobility. The route is a direct line from point A to point B. There is no delay in procuring clearance, and there is no concept of traffic. No railways, no roads, no additional construction of any kind is required, apart from the airstrips.

On the other side of mobility spectrum, there are helicopters. They only need a small landing pad to take off as do some VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) vehicles like Harrier jets.

Planes and helicopters are used in agricultural applications (spreading pesticides or other pest deterrents to save a harvest of crops) and to combat raging forest fires.

Air transport is a prompt and convenient way to travel and transport goods.

The Future of Education is Online


Wazzup Pilipinas!

We live at a wondrous time. As technology spreads, connectivity does so in accordance as well. Stable Wi-Fi hotspots, broadband and fiber-optic connections have made it much easier to browse the world wide web at own leisure and learn a thing a two in the process.

The Internet is the biggest source of information, readily available to everyone. A recent surge in the popularity of online courses paints an intriguing picture for the future of education as a whole. There are countless benefits to online courses, although there are significant difficulties the idea still needs to overcome. Many challenges remain before distance learning can enter a period of maturity. The move away from personal tuition will be lengthy, but exciting.


What is an online course and how does it differ from a traditional one?


An online course delivers most of its educational content via the web, unsurprisingly. The proportion doesn't entirely have to be a flat 100%; three-quarters is usually enough to quantify a course as an online one.

There are three other types of courses — traditional (no online delivery), web optimized/enhanced (roughly a quarter of content is delivered via the internet) and a hybrid (mixed approach, falls between web-optimized and fully online regarding the proportion of its delivery). Percentages may vary, but the main idea still stands, the bulk of an online course is delivered directly to the student without any delay or overhead with the help of the internet.

An online course is a very directed learning experience, designed to be accessed at any time, any place.
