Wazzup Pilipinas!

Online dates have become common in the contemporary world. With the attack of a global pandemic, the concept of online dates has taken shape. People  have started to look forward to their mobile and computer screens to find a companion worth enjoyment, friendship, romance, and love.

But beginners can get anxious with the concept of online dating and its variables. This article will help you set up a splendid online date in five easy steps and get you started with finding a companion.

Step 1- Set up the time

You might be a night owl with pending works to cover. Your partner may be a 9-5 worker. These odd timings of availability can make it challenging to choose a perfect time to date. But if there’s a will, there’s a way. Ask your partner about the perfect time to set up the date. 

Once confirmed, set up your date on a reliable video chat website. Make sure to check if the website demands to pre-book meeting timings. Do the needful that ensures a smooth online date.

Step 2- Get ready for the date

Online dates are easy because you can do them in the comfort of your home. But this facility doesn’t imply that you will not dress up for your date. Whether an online date or a real date, it is important to dress up and look smart and attractive. Once the date and timings have been decided, you must decide the attire for the evening. Choose your best outfit and get a makeover.

Remember, beauty lies within, so there’s no need to put too much effort into making your outfit or makeover great. Be yourself.

Step 3- Set up the camera

The camera plays a crucial role in online dating. You must take special care of your camera that you intend to use for video chat. Before you tune in to the meeting, check if your camera is working correctly. Sit in front of the camera and take a look if everything is perfect.

If you do not want your background to be visible to your date, choose a different and suitable background. You can remove things from your background that you don’t want your date to see.

Step 4- Create a romantic ambiance

As you are not sitting in a restaurant or cafe, you must create an ambiance for the date. You can put up fairy lights or candles to enhance the ambiance. You can also decorate your visible backgrounds with paintings, home decors, wine glasses, etc. 

Putting efforts into making your date special shows your passion for your partner. This simple step can make your partner perceive a fair idea of your personality and feelings.

Step 5- Tune in to your splendid online date

After you are satisfied with your pre-date efforts, it’s time to make the call. Be patient till your partner gets connected with the call. You can begin your date by complimenting your partner and slowly take it up to an exciting level.

Brandon Vera Back in Philippines, Has Close Eye on Potential Heavyweight Contenders



Wazzup Pilipinas!


Reigning ONE Heavyweight World Champion Brandon “The Truth” Vera recently flew from his home in Guam back to the Philippines to wrap up a few commercial obligations, visit family, and just simply check out what he missed.

Vera and wife Jessica welcomed their first child together, Atreyu Timothy Craven Vera, last year in the US territory, and have remained there to ride out the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the first time Vera has returned to the Philippines since.

“We’re back here in the Philippines to come home for a second, finish filming our movie we started about a virus, before the real virus, and a couple of endorsement commercials,” said Vera.

One thing Vera will be doing this week is keeping a close eye on a couple of particular heavyweight matchups at ONE: UNBREAKABLE II.

ONE: UNBREAKABLE II, a previously recorded event from the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore, scheduled for global broadcast this Friday, 29 January features former ONE Heavyweight World Title challenger Mauro "The Hammer" Cerilli of Italy who takes on Russia's Abdulbasir "Dagestan Machine" Vagabov. 


Also scheduled for action is four-time Muay Thai and Kickboxing Heavyweight World Champion Alain "The Panther" Ngalani of Hong Kong, who will face Senegalese sensation "Reug Reug" Oumar Kane.

The four men are highly regarded heavyweights, and are all trying to fight their way into a shot at Vera’s ONE Heavyweight World Title.

The 43-year-old Filipino-American combat sports veteran has held the title since winning the inaugural belt in 2015, and reiterates that he’s more than willing to put it on the line against a worthy challenger.

“These guys are amazing heavyweights, each with their own attributes to solve and figure out. I’m excited to see this event, and even more excited to watch and learn. I’m beyond hyped for all the recent signings of world-class heavyweight talent. It makes me nervous, which in turn, makes me train even harder,” said Vera.

“All of them are future opponents. Everyone is when you’re the champ.”

In a recent Global Conference Call with ONE Championship Chairman and CEO Chatri Sityodtong, ONE Championship announced its latest renewed partnership with Turner Sports in the United States. On the call, Sityodtong fielded questions from media from all over the world, who asked about a wide range of topics, including the status of the heavyweight division and when Vera can expect to be back in action.

The promotion stated that logistics and contracts were still being figured out, but that fans would not have to wait long to see “The Truth” return to the Circle.


Currently, Vera is expected to face rising star Arjan “Singh” Bhullar of India in his next world title defense, although nothing has been finalized yet and a date has yet to be confirmed. Vera did, however, teased his impending return.


“I would say abangan ‘nyo (wait for it) for the first half of the year,” Vera said.

More People Are Likely to Try Out Esports Betting During the Pandemic



Wazzup Pilipinas!

It may go against all believes and logic to say that any type of gambling would increase during times where a lot of people are suffering economically. I will, however, make the claim that what’s happening right now is actually beneficial for the eSports betting industry. 


Not everyone will gain from the pandemic though

As you may or may not know, eSports betting in the Philippines is highly popular, though once the pandemic is over only a portion of the industry may be left, if any at all. The country’s online gambling industry has already faced concerns about tax increases and even threats about being banned completely.

With lockdowns happening as a result of the covid-19 pandemic, several online gambling offices have been forced to shut their doors as the government have considered their businesses unessential. Reports have told us that many operators are gone for good and that expansion plans have been cancelled.

What’s happening may even be the tipping point for the suggested ban to take place in the country. In other words, it’s not looking great for the Philippines. 


But other markets aren’t having the same issues

Malta is widely known for its online gambling with hundreds of casino and sports betting companies having their headquarters on this tiny Island which is one of the world’s smallest countries. Here, the pandemic is yet to strike as hard as the country relies on its gambling businesses. People still go to work as usual, unless they work from home which has become quite a common thing.

But just because businesses aren’t shutting down, how could this ever mean that eSports betting is increasing during the pandemic, which is what I am claiming? 


It all boils down to the fact that people will watch more eSports

It is already known that more and more people are getting interested in eSports, which is due to increased media attention, Twitch streams and an overall increased interest in gaming. With the pandemic many people are either working less than they used to or working from home, which frees up a lot of time either way. This translates to time that can be spent on gaming and watching streams.

Of course, not everyone will magically get into the world of eSports, but those who are already interested in gaming (which is a lot of people!) and are locked inside have limited things to do. This will naturally lead to an increasing number of people finding their way to competitive gaming and we already know that people love to bet on sports whether it’s soccer, basket or games.

Adding one plus one together and we get the reasoning behind my thoughts of people being more likely to bet on eSports during the pandemic. 

 
But aren’t people less likely to spend money during these times?

Those who have lost their jobs probably are. However, gambling is one of those things that actually do quite well during recessions. Research shows that casino gambling stagnates during economic crisis, while lottery gambling remains intact or even increases (which happened in Iceland in 2008 when three major banks went bankrupt).

As eSports betting is quite a new phenomenon, we don’t know a lot about how it behaves during recessions. However, my belief is that it will increase due to the fact that people have more time to spend in the gaming vertical and the fact that eSport tournaments continue to be hosted as they do not have to be held live.

PNR’s new trains from Indonesia start operations



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Train commuters can now experience smoother and more convenient rides with the inaugural run today, 28 January 2021, of the Philippine National Railway’s (PNR) three new Diesel Hydraulic Locomotives (DHL) with 15 passenger coaches that were built in Indonesia.

Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur Tugade, PNR General Manager Junn Magno, other transport officials, representatives from the Republic of Indonesia Embassy in Manila, and representatives from PT Industri Kereta Api (PT-INKA) the firm that made the train sets, graced the ceremonial class assignment and inaugural run from the PNR Dela Rosa Station in Makati to the Manila Tutuban Station.

The new train sets will serve commuters on the PNR's Metro Commuter Line which runs from the Tutuban Station in Manila to Los Baรฑos in Laguna. With the addition of the new train sets, the PNR Metro Commuter Line now targets to serve a total of 140,000 passengers daily doubling its existing capacity from 48,000 to 60,000 per day.





Secretary Tugade said the inaugural run of the new PNR train sets assures the riding public of safe, convenient, and comfortable travels.

“Nakaumang na ‘yung tren, darating na ‘yung tren, sasakay na tayo ng tren upang sa ganoon ay maramdaman natin ang katanungan ng mga tao noong tayo ay nagsimula: ‘Kailan mababago ang PNR?’ Ngayon po, patuloy na binabago natin ang PNR. ‘Kailan darating ang bagong tren?’ Ngayon po, dumating na ang bagong tren. At ‘Kailan naman natin masasakyan ang bagong tren?’ Ngayon po, pasisinayaan at sasakyan natin ang mga bagong tren,” Secretary Tugade said.

The Transportation Chief also commended the men and women of the PNR for their relentless work in transforming the rail network and for developing the country’s railway system. Secretary Tugade specifically noted that PNR stations have increased from 25 to the present 34.

“For you to have an improved rail movement, you must have the facility, and the rails. You must have the trains and the coaches, and you must have the people. The three are being done by Junn Magno and the PNR.”

Secretary Tugade also thanked PT INKA and the Indonesian Embassy in Manila for their support in realizing the development projects of the country, especially in the rail sector.

For his part, PNR GM Junn Magno pointed out that the last class assignment for trains was done way back in 2008. However, under the Duterte administration, there have already been four class assignments, along with the implementation of other railway projects.

“This administration has implemented more railway projects, has assigned more classes, has introduced new innovations, has introduced new generations of rolling stocks classes than any other administrations combined. And that is through the leadership of Secretary Tugade. This is his legacy,” GM Magno said.

The new train sets are part of the PNR Management Re-fleeting Strategy which involves the delivery of train sets composed of 37 cars and three locomotives procured in 2018.

The re-fleeting project aims to increase the PNR's capacity to accommodate 1,330 passengers per set in a single trip.

The train sets have a maximum design speed of 120 kilometers per hour, with high clearance for flooded tracks. Each train set features an interior access to the engine room, the first of its kind for the PNR fleet. The train sets are also equipped with 36,000 kilocalories per hour of air conditioning in each coach that is suitable for tropical countries like the Philippines.

Japan-financed Light Rail Vehicles manufactured in Spain for LRT-1, Extension Project unveiled



Wazzup Pilipinas!


The first set of the 4th generation light rail vehicles (LRVs) to be used for the LRT-1 and its extension line - the much-awaited LRT-1 Cavite Extension Project was unveiled on 26 January 2020.

In the arrival ceremony held at the Manila Harbor, transport officials led by Department of Transportation (DOTr) Secretary Arthur P. Tugade, graced the event, together with officials of the Light Rail Transit Authority (LRTA), the Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC), and members of the diplomatic corps.

The first set and second set of 4th generation LRVs were manufactured in Spain. The 2nd to 4th train set are already en route to Philippines, while the remaining LRV train sets (5th to 30th) are being manufactured and tested in Mexico. Deliveries are scheduled until 2022.

Secretary Tugade said the arrival of the first set of the 4th generation LRVs in the country will be a big boost to the realization of the LRT-1 Cavite Extension Project, which has been delayed for almost two (2) decades. The transportation chief also reiterated the need to hasten the project's completion for partial operability before the year ends.

"As we inaugurate the unveiling and the acceptance of the 4th generation of cars and trains, I remember distinctly well that 19 years ago, this project (LRT-1 Cavite Extension) was started," Secretary Tugade said.

"Under the Duterte Administration, we pushed and pushed hard. That is why today, we see the steps of the whole realization of this project--partial operability within this year, by accepting the trains and the cars," he added.

Meanwhile, Japan Ambassador Kazuhiko Koshikawa and JICA Senior Representative Kiyo Kawabuchi expressed their full support for the projects and programs of the government, especially in providing Filipinos with an efficient transportation system.

“I served JICA as an Executive Senior Vice President for four years, so I share this same ardent passion with the DOTr leadership. Now, I am here in this country, I am completely committed to work closely with our friends from the Philippine government to achieve these infrastructure goals, together with JICA,” Ambassador Koshikawa said.

"We are confident that this new addition to the existing fleet of coaches shall further improve the service of LRT line 1 with the involvement of private sector, LRMC, for the operations and maintenance. And therefore, provide the commuting public with a more efficient, faster, reliable, and safer mass transport system to improve their daily commuting experience and quality of life," Kawabuchi meanwhile added.

The new 4th generation LRV trainsets consume less energy and are equipped with new operational features, improved cooling system, and are more PWD-friendly compared to previous LRV generations.

The acquisition of new trains for the LRT-1 line is part of the massive expansion now being taken by the country's rail sector to the train fleet from a total of 224 train cars in 2016 to 1,381 ordered, under production, delivered, and operational train cars by 2022.

Pinoy-Made Vietnam War Game Gets Expansion



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Following the success of Vietnam War RTS game The Nam: Vietnam Combat Operations, Pinoy game developer Tiger Yan has just released a freely-downloadable expansion pack called Wider War.

“Wider War expands the coverage of the game from just Vietnam, to the neighboring countries affected by the war, such as Laos and Cambodia. It also covers the wars Vietnam fought with China and Cambodia,” explains Yan.

As well as introducing dozens of new units, the expansion includes seven new maps – covering Laos, Cambodia, North and South Vietnam.








South Vietnam Finally Honored

“No side lost more than the South Vietnamese, many of whom emigrated to America and other countries after Saigon was taken by North Vietnamese forces in April 1975,” explains Yan, who met many former soldiers of the now-defunct Army of the Republic of Vietnam (ARVN), South Vietnam’s much maligned army. “Not only did they lose the war. They lost their country and were forced to assimilate into either new countries or the new Vietnam.”

Often portrayed as inept, corrupt and cowardly, the ARVN actually fought well until their final defeat in 1975, even repelling a full-scale North Vietnamese invasion in 1972. Their courage was best exemplified by the Battle of Xuan Loc, where ARVN Brigadier General Le Minh Dao’s 18th Division stopped North Vietnam for two full weeks before finally being overwhelmed. The map allows players to command regular and elite ARVN forces – including Marines, rangers, paratroopers and even Dao himself. Xuan Loc’s fall heralded the end for the US-backed nation of South Vietnam. 




The Killing Fields of Cambodia

The supposedly neutral country of Cambodia was long used by North Vietnam as a base of operations for operations in South Vietnam, who invaded Cambodia with the Americans in 1970. After Vietnam was unified in 1975, dissident Khmer Rouge forces started raiding and massacring Vietnamese villages across the border, igniting a war with Vietnam, who rightfully crushed the Khmer Rouge and freed the vast majority of Cambodians from the nightmarish Pol Pot regime – all within two weeks.

Unfortunately for Vietnam, the Khmer Rouge started adopting the same guerilla tactics that worked so well for them during their war with the Americans. By the end of the Cambodian-Vietnamese War 10 years later, nearly 30,000 Vietnamese had died. This period has since been termed ‘Vietnam’s Vietnam’ and has largely been forgotten even by the Vietnamese government.

Players can now command the fanatical Khmer Rouge, including forcefully conscripted child soldiers, to ward off American attacks or Vietnamese invaders. “As the Khmer Rouge had similar weapons to Vietnam, it’s the only map in the game where Vietnamese can play against Vietnamese and still be relatively historically accurate,” adds Yan. The map features not just beautiful Khmer temples and Cambodian villages, but the grim reality of child soldiers and Cambodia’s killing fields. “I personally walked through the Killing Fields and saw bones, clothes and teeth. I wanted to pull no punches and show what the Khmer Rouge really did there.”



Laos and Lima Site 85

Laos, another supposedly neutral country, hosted vast tracts of the Ho Chi Minh Trail, which supplied North Vietnamese and Vietcong troops with men and material during the Vietnam War. The game includes a section of the Ho Chi Minh trail which passed through the misty dirt roads of the Truong Son Mountain Range. Though repeatedly attacked by American aircraft, the trail was never cut. South Vietnam launched an immense raid called ‘Lam Son 719’ to destroy North Vietnamese basecamps in Laos, but was repulsed with heavy losses.

One of the little-known battles of the Vietnam War was the battle for Lima Site 85, where a top-secret US Air Force radar site was destroyed by North Vietnamese commandos. The battle would remain veiled in secrecy until details were revealed decades after the war ended. “The Lima Site, manned by CIA and air force personnel and Hmong troops, can be controlled in the game, which also shows Laos brimming with undetonated American bombs.” Laos remains the most heavily-bombed country on Earth.

America’s air war over North Vietnam is also covered via a scenario called Rolling Thunder, where the full might of America’s warplanes went head-to-head against North Vietnam’s air defenses, reputedly the toughest in the world in the 60s and 70s.



The Sino-Vietnamese War

China invaded Vietnam briefly in 1979 in a short but bloody war. In February 1979, 200,000 Chinese troops backed by 500 tanks attacked the northernmost provinces of Vietnam. Though they succeeded in taking the towns of Lang Son, Cao Bang and Lao Cai, they suffered disproportionately huge casualties against the better-trained and well-prepared Vietnamese. The game puts players in either the boots of the Chinese invaders or Vietnamese defenders.

Vietnam Combat Operations Wider War also showcases revamped maps and units, adding layers of detail to the original game, which was released publicly in September 2020. “For example, Saigon now features the US Embassy, National Radio Station, Tan Son Nhut Airbase and even a city jail which you can capture to get armed prisoners and a few flustered medical doctors,” says Yan. “The new Long Tan map allows you to train ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand) troops, who famously won the 1966 Battle of Long Tan against the Vietcong. There’s a lot we did to make the maps and units better.”

The expansion pack is the culmination of an 18-year old project Yan began in 2003. “Vietnam Combat Operations uses the Command and Conquer Tiberian Sun engine to bring the Vietnam War to life. It’s a nonprofit educational game for people to experience and overcome the many challenges of jungle-based guerilla warfare, from not seeing your enemies to approaching and controlling potentially hostile towns and villages. Unlike most Vietnam War games which tend to glorify Americans, all sides are portrayed as heroes fighting for their own causes.”

The game has received good reviews and though it can be downloaded online for free, Yan urges gamers to make a donation to APOPO, a nonprofit organization working to clear deadly landmines in Cambodia. “In reality, the Vietnam War wrought great misery for the people of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia. If this game can spur at least one good donation, then it would have been worth it,” concludes Yan.

Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana in Spencer



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Here's a first look at Kristen Stewart as Princess Diana in Spencer, Pablo Larraรญn's imagining of the weekend Princess Diana decides to leave her marriage to Prince Charles.

Is this another demolition job and character assassination on Prince Charles and the royal family? Did they assassinate their characters all by themselves? The entire family is embroiled in scandal after scandal. They don't need movies and biographies to tarnish an already spiked reputation.

However, people are so quick to believe tabloid’s rumors. Personally, I prefer my history to be accurate. Princess Diana seemed lovely, but just like all of us she had her flaws and insecurities. Demonizing Prince Charles will not change that.

Um, maybe Charles did that all by himself. That's some misogynistic gaslighting by saying telling the story is a hit job.

How will those poor royals live? Maybe they can cry in their castles and continue to protect the brother who has connections to Epstein.


Also, are they gonna use a stunt double for the scenes of Diana laughing/smiling? Well, scandals are not necessarily factual isn’t? What more are the smiles and laughs if sincere or forced.

The nerve of some people saying she’s a bad actress when they’ve only see one of her films and that was twilight. Stop judging before you have even seen it.

There are many actors who are in some big films but aren’t phenomenal or have much range. Chris Hemsworth is not exactly outstanding but people love him. Not every actor has to be Oscar worthy. Acting is subjective from an audiences perspective, like any art form. Acting is subjective but I guess that only matters when people agree with you.

Though People love Chris Hemsworth because he is likeable and funny. Kirsten Stewart doesn’t come across as likeable to me.

Remember Men in Black with Chris Hemsworth and Tessa. They ditched the franchise, like the last Charlie's Angels with Kristen. Maybe it also depends on the correct presentation. But sometimes an actor, even in a bad film, still shows himself. It means something is missing

Perhaps Hemsworth doesn't bit his lip enough for her?

I'm still burnt that Adventureland couldn't land anyone better for her part. I wanted to like it so much.

It doesn’t matter which review you read, they all say the exact same thing: Bad movie, Kristen Stewart is the only good thing about it.

That’s because the roles she plays always fit the gloomy girl. Whereas people like Seth Rogan fit the stoner, funny guy. She’s a good actress y’all just hate to see it.


I’ve seen her in multiple other movies ...she’s bad I loved her in my Twilight days but as I grew I realized how bad she was ..Kristen Stewart looks as if she’s constipated and struggling to find words in every movie she’s in .. while it worked as the Awkward teen it lost its luster.

Twilight films (cheers to my ex wife) , Snow White and the Huntsman (cheers kids), Underwater, Zathura, Seberg, Into The Wild, The Messengers, American Ultra, On The Road and Jumper. To be honest, bless her, a wooden spoon has greater range. Fair play though, she's made money.

But seriously, aside from the Twilight movies, I have seen her in other films actually! She just always strikes me as incredibly bland.

She had to play a blank canvas girl so what do peeps expect? She did okay. The material sucked, not her. Look at her in Adventureland, I liked her. I would sooner see her than one-trick Eisenberg. I am looking forward to Diana. After all, can't be worse than the Naomi Watts one!

Well, they managed to make her look the part. She looks spot on! However, the accent will probably be butchered. She’s done a few accents in different movies and always gets them spot on so hopefully her English accent will be just as good.

I’m just not confident she will mirror Diana’s warmth or grace. she can barely act as it is, with less daunting material. I'm sure they'll have her work with a coach. They seem very focused on getting it right.

I should add, they're clearly focused on getting the costumes and accents right...as for the truth, well they are taking some liberties with that!

"People have decided how they are going to perceive her. No matter how many times she smiles, they’ll put in the one picture where she’s not smiling.”

I've seen absolutely loads of her films. I still think she's terrible., Pablo Larraรญn's imagining of the weekend Princess Diana decides to leave her marriage to Prince Charles.

I should add, they're clearly focused on getting the costumes and accents right...as for the truth, well they are taking some liberties with that!

"People have decided how they are going to perceive her. No matter how many times she smiles, they’ll put in the one picture where she’s not smiling.”

I've seen absolutely loads of her films. I still think she's terrible.

Top-Ranked Female Atomweight Denice Zamboanga Responds to Meng Bo Call Out



Wazzup Pilipinas!

First-ranked ONE Championship female mixed martial arts atomweight Denice “The Menace” Zamboanga of the Philippines didn’t take kindly to Meng Bo’s recent comments about her.

Meng is fresh off an impressive performance against former ONE World Title challenger Samara Santos at ONE: UNBREAKABLE last Friday night, winning by unanimous decision after three close rounds.

Following the contest, Meng laid into Zamboanga, taking a dig at the Filipina fighter’s skills and promising she would knock the #1-ranked atomweight out should they ever meet in the ONE Circle.

Zamboanga, who is currently based out of Thailand, responded to Meng’s call out. The 24-year-old rising star took a subtle swipe at the Chinese fighter’s performance, but also welcomed a possible showdown.

“I was actually expecting her to finish her unranked opponent, but it didn't happen. I enjoyed watching it,” Zamboanga criticized Meng’s performance.

“Of course, I'm always open to facing anyone they put me in the Circle with. Meng Bo is the #2-ranked atomweight, so we will meet sooner or later. I know at some point, whether it's in the tournament, or outside of it, we will fight.”


Zamboanga maintains that she is in constant training at their new gym in Bangkok -- Marrok Force -- where she continues to hone her skills alongside older brother Drex “T-Rex” Zamboanga and teammate Fritz Biagtan.

The top-billed Filipina mixed martial arts star is preparing herself for a possible entry into the much-talked about ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix. Both Zamboanga and Meng are expected to be among eight participants in the said tournament, with the winner earning the right to challenge reigning ONE Women’s Atomweight World Champion Angela Lee when she returns from giving birth to her first child later this year.

Zamboanga says her training is coming along just fine and that her goal remains to bring the ONE World Title home to the Philippines before the year ends.


“Right now I'm just enjoying my time here training with my new team here at Marrok Force. It's good to have this solid support system by me all the time. We help each other get better and improve, and we're always in shape because that fight offer could come at any time,” Zamboanga said.


“I'm excited this year because there are a lot of possibilities. I'm really motivated to take my career to the next level. To all my fans in the Philippines, thank you for the love and support. I appreciate it and I promise I will do my best in every fight. Let's get that world title this year!"


ONE Championship returns with ONE: UNBREAKABLE II, a previously recorded event scheduled for broadcast on Friday, 29 January.


In the main event, former ONE Heavyweight World Title challenger Mauro "The Hammer" Cerilli of Italy will take on Russia's Abdulbasir "Dagestan Machine" Vagabov. Also scheduled for action is four-time Heavyweight Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Champion Alain "The Panther" Ngalani of Hong Kong, who will face Senegalese sensation "Reug Reug" Oumar Kane.

WWF-PH appoints Katherine Custodio as new Executive Director



Wazzup Pilipinas!

The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) Philippines has named Katherine ‘Trin’ Custodio as its new Executive Director effective January 2021, succeeding Jose Angelito Palma.

Custodio has been with WWF for a decade. Prior to her appointment as WWF-PH Executive Director, she served as the Director of the WWF Asia Pacific Growth Strategy, a regional growth and investment program covering twenty-three Asia Pacific countries. Under her watch, WWF entered new markets in the Asia Pacific, grew its partnerships and supporter base, and more than doubled the level of funds going into conservation programs.

Custodio shared her excitement to return to WWF-PH, which she first joined in 2008.

“This is a homecoming of sorts and an extraordinary opportunity to bring to WWF-Philippines what I have learned from other WWF offices in the Asia Pacific region. Ultimately, it is the chance to make a bigger contribution to the country and to be of greater service to the organization’s objectives that convinced me to take the role. We have a wonderful team, a supportive board, great partners, and wins to build on. When one’s advocacy lines up with what one does for a living, the work is just so much more fulfilling. I do count myself lucky to have this chance. And I will be happy to talk for days with anyone about our work because it isn’t just ‘work’.” she said.

“As a new Executive Director, my challenge is to scale up the organization’s impact and drive the kind of change we need, to put nature in the Philippines on the path to recovery. We need to engage millions more Filipinos to be voices for nature, and to work with all sectors to make the way we produce and consume more sustainable. I am inspired by nature, especially the ocean and everything undersea. But beyond love for nature, our work is really about making all people benefit from the natural environment now and into the future, and most especially by those in poverty who are disproportionately impacted by climate change and environmental degradation. There is a hashtag I like and which expresses how I feel about this: #SanaAll.”

“I see our team at WWF as enablers, making a more sustainable lifestyle possible for all Filipinos. I urge people who can drive change to join us in facing the challenge because we have no time to lose. As a science-based organization, WWF provides the ecological perspective, and can bring together various players who need to be part of the solution. There is a lot of innovation in the environmental space, which is super exciting, and which needs help to scale. We have some really good work on fisheries that are helping communities in Lagonoy, Mindoro, and Palawan become globally-competitive whilst keeping fisheries sustainable. And momentum has been built on the work on water, food, energy and plastics. Donsol is a success story of eco-tourism, but the pandemic has been a setback to the industry. For the entrepreneurs out there, I want you to know that now is the time to do what you do best, which is to seize opportunities and answer a need in the market – to benefit people and environment alike. The policy environment is shifting in the right direction in some areas such as energy efficiency and plastics, and market forces can really help bring to life the benefits from those. I would love for us to work in partnership.”

“What underpins all our work are not new-fangled ideas, but values consistent with those we grew up with, like courage, respect, cooperation and very Pinoy values too, like malasakit and bayanihan. Young kids know that it is good to care for the home, to keep things clean, and that it is wrong to be wasteful and greedy. We teach our kids to share with those who have less and to speak up when something isn’t right. Our work on environment is an expression of these.”

No single sector or organization or country can succeed in reversing the decline of our natural capital on which we all depend. For us to have a shot, we need to move together and with urgency to #ChangeTheEnding to a better normal.

Intelegencia ends 2020 with incredible growth inspite of the pandemic

Wazzup Pilipinas!

 

After facing its most eventful and tough year yet, Intelegencia BPO surprisingly celebrated during the year end with its employees and partners.

 

The global pandemic, along with the corresponding GCQ, MECQ, and whatever quarantines or lockdown terms they called it that followed was truly challenging for the company because it brought numerous struggles since March 2020. The shutdown crippled both public and private transportation due to limitation in commuting and travelling, client business woes were plenty, and the restrictive “new normal” guidelines were some of the challenges that threatened to disrupt the productivity of the organization. 


The HR outsourcing service provider proudly went through all these hurdles by creating admirable solutions one challenge at a time. 

The BPO implemented a work-from-home arrangement and offered shuttle services to its work force after public transportation became unavailable due to the nationwide quarantines strictly implemented by the government. It went a further notch up by also investing in its very own shuttle vehicles. 

 

Aside from the Year-End Party, Intelegencia also made the extra effort to create a happy environment for its employees through engagement activities designed to enhance and motivate their members' personal well-being. Some of this year’s projects include the Fitness Challenge, INTG Superheroes Contest, and the Music Icons Quiz Night.


Pandemic or not, it was still business as usual for the members of the company that offers international hr consulting services as we can't really afford to shutdown the world seemingly because of its global clients. Everyone in the team offered uninterrupted exemplified service to eventually churn out impressive results earning a client growth of 62 percent. The Intelegencia team even grew from 300 to 500 members by the end of this year. The onboarding of new partners, coupled with the trust given by their existing accounts, allowed this growth to happen proving that productivity comes naturally when the team members are given convenience and importance.


Donation drives to various communities affected by COVID19 situation and the recent typhoon disasters through the “Sharing Is Caring” program were also among the company's projects designed to help alleviate our kababayans sufferings.

 

2021 is hopefully the start of another productive new year for Intelegencia regardless of the continuing pandemic. Its management gives most of the credit to its notable success to its hardworking members. Founder and CEO Perry Chaturvedi was quoted saying “I didn’t know if we were going to survive as a company [and] as a group. But thankfully, Intelegencia globally survived. Intelegencia Philippines did outstanding this year.”

 

With that statement in mind, plus armed with fresh ideas and a newfound determination, the Intelegencia team is driven to face 2021 aiming to achieve even bigger goals.

 


CytoDyn Inc.’s Vyrologix (leronlimab-Vyrologix) shows impressive results in critically ill COVID-19 patients



Wazzup Pilipinas!

CytoDyn Inc., a late-stage biotechnology company developing CCR5 inhibiting drug leronlimab- Vyrologix, showed impressive results in improving the immune function of critically ill COVID-19 patients in the United States.

Leronlimab- Vyrologix is a humanized monoclonal antibody drug used to treat HIV patients. The drug is a C-C chemokine receptor type 5 (CCR5) antagonist that protects healthy T cells from viral infection. The CCR5 receptor plays a crucial role in modulating immune cell trafficking to sites of inflammation.[1] Because of the drug’s ability to mitigate the cytokine storm which is common in COVID-19 fatalities,[2] it has become the basis for its study as a potential COVID-19 treatment.[3]

Leronlimab- Vyrologix appears to be a powerful treatment with hardly any drug related serious adverse events. CytoDyn’s recent treatment of patients under eIND (Emergency Investigational New Drug) with leronlimab for COVID-19 infection have shown impressive results as the drug reduced the plasma viral load and restored the immune function by day 7.5, [4]

CytoDyn has already completed its Phase 2 clinical trial for COVID-19, a double-blinded, randomized clinical trial for mild-to-moderate COVID-19 patients in the U.S. The company has also recently announced that they have completed the enrollment of 394 patients in its Phase 2b/3 randomized clinical trial for the severe-to-critically ill COVID-19 population.

Cytodyn has appointed Chiral Pharma, a subsidiary of New Marketlink Pharmaceutical Corporation (NMPC) as its authorized partner for the distribution of Leronlimab-Vyrologix to the Philippines subject to registration approval of Philippine Food and Drug Administration. Through the partnership, the companies are working to register Leronlimab under a licensed physician’s request for Compassionate Special Permit (CSP). It is the desire of Cytodyn and Chiral Pharma to make Leronlimab immediately available to patients with Covid-19.

Tim Yap and his birthday party in Baguio city amidst the pandemic



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Media personality Tim Yap on Baguio event:

"I wanted to assure the public that we really followed all the LGU protocols bago kami umakyat ng Baguio. Alam po natin na ang Baguio is napaka-strict sa kanilang protocols and they will not allow anyone na umakyat ng Baguio na positive.

Lahat ng mga tao, bago umakyat ng tao, kailangan maka-secure ng negative na test. We ensured all the protocols were in place. Itong mga kasama ko, mga kaibigan ko, were also tested negative.

Lahat ng mga tao, mayroon silang mga mask. That time papunta na yung mga tao sa buffet table. Pagkatapos noon, kakain na sila so tinanggal nila maskara nila. Pagkatapos noon, pumasok yung mga dancers na mag-community dancing so hindi nila nasuot mask nila na sumayaw sila.

Ako po yung nag-organize noon. Ang pakay po noon is to promote Baguio as a destination parang local tourism. Sa akin, yun ang hangarin ko talaga. Para mag-push ng local tourism. Kung makikita mo social media ko, lahat talaga yun ang ginagawa ko for the past few months.

We made sure that we secured all necessary permits para matuloy ito dahil ang talagang goal namin, ang aim namin is to help restart the economy, reopen the economy at ma-promote ang local tourism.

I am fully cooperative po sa atin gobyerno at sa ating community kung ano kailangan gawin, nandito ako para mag-cooperate.

It was never my intention to offend anyone. I would never do anything na makaka-endanger kahit sinuman. We are all responsible citizens of this country and all we want to do is really is to help restart the economy and the push for local tourism."


Tim Yap missed all the points. *hyperventilates in ‘SANAOL PRIVILEGED’* 

Cordillera region is going to be on a lockdown on Feb 1-15 because of the new COVID variant tapos makikita ko sa trending topics yung party ni Tim Yap.

This is why I have too little respect for some tourists who visit our region. They disrespect our hospitality.

The cheek, the nerve, the gall, the audacity and the gumption of Tim Yap to use local tourism as an excuse for the insensitivity and  callousness.

Tim Yap is a perfect example on how the privileged people never understand how hard this pandemic is to the rest of the world! 

What I learned today: 'Pag mahirap ang nag-party - pasaway. 

'Pag mayayaman, promoting tourism. 

Baguio needs promoting as tourist destination? I don't think so. Also, who gets Tim Yap as influencer these days? The oldies of tourism who remember him from his Embassy days?

Tim Yap using the lame excuse of “promoting” Baguio and “boosting” its local tourism. In this time of the pandemic? 

Baguio doesn't need someone like Tim Yap and friends to promote tourism, especially if they can't even show how to be a responsible tourists. 

Tim Yap's brand of confidence to think that Baguio needs him to place the town on the map. LGU strategy of inviting him to throw a birthday party for his friends is so effective. Maybe advertise lots at the cemetery so when you visit Baguio you can stay forever. 

Taking COVID tests doesn’t mean you’re allowed to violate protocols.

And they think “negative” results from swab tests or other tests “shield them from contracting the virus somehow or at least through the duration of their party. Vaccine po yun!




All sorts of excuses.   Clearly it was not just during the “buffet” that they were not wearing masks.

Granted they tested negative. is Baguio zero covid cases now? What if it's the other way around & sila yung nahawa from an infected na baguio resident? Is it really that worth it ang magpa "party" in this time of pandemic?

Assuming na negative sila, allowed ang ganoong kadaming tao sa event? Walang nagsuot ng face mask or shield? Allowed yun sa Baguio?  Walang protocol  ang management sa guests?

Doesn't mean if you do a COVID-19 test and turn out negative, you can just party like this and disregard health protocols. You can safely gather but not like this which reeks of privilege and carelessness. Tim Yap and influencer friends are clearly another *breed*

The DOT Cordillera Administrative Region earlier launched a probe into the reported "party" organized by Yap at The Manor in Baguio City.  A Notice to Explain has already been issued to the establishment.

Unfortunately, either because of being largely Catholic, or an innate desire to be middle/upper class, we Filipinos have a tendency to give celebrities/politicians/anyone popular or powerful enough, a free pass to almost anything.

Alam nyo kung ano ang kalokohan? Baguio residents sacrificed not to visit family & relatives during the holidays dahil bawal ang gathering, but some "privileged" were busy partying somewhere in Baguio. 

This was done in poor taste, very insenstive sa part ni Tim Yap. When people in Baguio are struggling because of another quarantine, we’ll hear this news. Nakaka******* lang!


Kaya di mapagalitan ni mayor ang nangyaring party, kasi nga... kasama si mayor... 

So ironic that Mayor Magalong was the one that announced CAR to be placed under GCQ yet he was there at Tim Yap's birthday party.

Dear Cat Arambulo, are you also going to ask why don't these motherfuckers stay at home?
- Tim Yap
- Apples Aberin
- KC Concepcion
- Raymond Gutierrez

How about we fine people for violating social distancing restrictions & make it proportional to their income.

Don't penalise the poor who are trying to make ends meet during the pandemic, but charge reckless rich people like Mond Gutierrez & Tim Yap MILLIONS for what they did.

Siguro nakakainis lang din na people from La Trinidad and other neighbors of Baguio have to undergo strict health protocols for their livelihood but I guess Tim Yap can have his birthday party with all his guests.

Yep, Tim Yap was a fuckup for his Baguio party. But didn't Harry Roque go there too while Cagayan and Isabela were submerged in floodwater? Let's not forget about that other bitch. Nail them both.

Wink Hotels is Vietnam’s first homegrown, international-standard hotel group that directly appeals to a dynamic generation emerging throughout Indochina, catering to their fast-paced lifestyle and immersing them in each destination. Distinctively Vietnamese, Wink Hotels is differentiated by its contemporary ethos of chic and creative design, deep functionality and traditional Vietnamese values. Quรก ฤ‘แป‰nh!

Architecture Workshop (AW2), led by partner architects Reda Amalou and Stรฉphanie Ledoux, have designed every element, from the architectural concept through to interior design and furniture. For the Wink brand, AW2 created a specific locally-inspired colour palette deployed throughout the hotel, from the bespoke sunshades on the faรงade down to the cushion fabrics. The bold and vibrant exterior design attracts attention from the outside, acting as a beacon for the wider neighbourhood.

Each Wink hotel brings Vietnamese street food culture to the comfort of a hotel environment with its signature Wink Carts for easy, quick breakfasts and lunches while the team of Wink Guides give you the best intel on the neighbourhood and the city.

Meng Bo Calls Out Denice Zamboanga, Wants Her Spot in Rankings



Wazzup Pilipinas!

Fresh off a hard-earned unanimous decision victory over Samara Santos at ONE: UNBREAKABLE on 22 January, #2-ranked women’s atomweight mixed martial arts contender Meng Bo already has her sights set on a possible next opponent.

The 24-year-old fighter from Changsha, China -- currently unbeaten in the ONE Circle -- is calling for a showdown with the #1-ranked Denice “The Menace” Zamboanga of the Philippines. Meng wasted absolutely no time, making her desire to face Zamboanga and take her spot in the official athlete rankings known immediately after her impressive performance last Friday night.

“We were supposed to fight last year, but COVID happened and it was cancelled. I couldn’t fly to Singapore at that time,” Meng revealed, before laying into Zamboanga with a scalding prediction.

“But I must say, Denice was lucky that fight got cancelled. If we were in the ring together, without a shadow of doubt, I would beat her up and take her spot as the #1 ranked atomweight in the division.”





Meng is today one of the hottest fighters in the atomweight division. Famous for being the only woman to have defeated UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion “Magnum” Zhang Weili, Meng has knocked out two of her last three opponents, both in the first round.

Meanwhile, Zamboanga’s resounding victories over top-ranked Jihin Radzuan and Mei Yamaguchi since joining ONE Championship in 2019 earned her pole position in the rankings. She currently sports an unblemished 5-0 record.

Meng, however, is hardly impressed by what “The Menace” has accomplished so far in the world’s largest martial arts organization. The 24-year-old Chinese standout feels she is a far better fighter, and wants to knock Zamboanga off her lofty perch.

“Denice is a stubborn and tough fighter. But if I was to identify her strength, she’s only good at punching, nothing else,” said Meng.

“(As for me) I learned a lot in the Samara Santos fight. One weak area I’ve discovered is my ground fighting skills. I need to improve my ground control and strength. My goal is to master all combat sports skills and become the most dangerous MMA fighter in ONE Championship.”

Both Meng and Zamboanga are expected to be participants in the much anticipated ONE Atomweight World Grand Prix, slated to commence some time later this year. Meng wants Zamboanga in a bad way, regardless. Without a doubt, both Meng and Zamboanga are on a collision course.

If it were up to the Chinese star, she wants to face Zamboanga in the Circle sooner rather than later, tournament or not.

“I think my stand up fighting techniques will be enough to give me the victory. I’m pretty confident that I can finish Denice with a flurry of punches and knock her out within two rounds,” said Meng.

“That would be more than enough to earn a shot at the World Title. Once I get Denice in the Circle and beat her, I will be ranked #1 in my division, and I’ll be next in line to fight the champion.”

ONE Championship returns with ONE: UNBREAKABLE II, a previously recorded event scheduled for broadcast on Friday, 29 January.


In the main event, former ONE Heavyweight World Title challenger Mauro "The Hammer" Cerilli of Italy will take on Russia's Abdulbasir "Dagestan Machine" Vagabov. Also scheduled for action is four-time Heavyweight Muay Thai and Kickboxing World Champion Alain "The Panther" Ngalani of Hong Kong, who will face Senegalese sensation "Reug Reug" Oumar Kane.
