The ring which is believed to have evolved in the ancient Egypt; aside from being a symbol of wealth, also symbolizes a never ending devotion, an eternal love for a person. This is why whenever a man wants to be with someone for the rest of his life, he offers a ring to the woman to be his fiancee. During a wedding ceremony, the ring is the only piece of jewelry that is present as a symbol of faith and love life after life.

Since blue is the best-known color of Sapphire, this pink colored one is unique and is the right one for that one woman whom a man wants to be with him for the rest of his life.

Affiliates now have greater chances at earning more!

As part of TravelBook.ph’s plan to increase the number of affiliate partners and to provide them with better deals, the company has launched a new commission structure for its Affiliate Program that makes it easier for them to earn more.

For starters, with the new set of commission rates, affiliate partners only need to have more than five (5) completed transactions to increase their earnings from 40 to 45%. This is a huge improvement from the old structure, where affiliates need to have at least 50 completed transactions to get the 45% commission rate.

Getting the highest rate of 65% is also way easier with the new commission structure—from the requirement of 1,000 or more completed transactions, it is now down to just 51. The requirements of the other commission rates have also been greatly lessened.

This new commission structure from TravelBook.ph also offers better rates compared to other affiliate programs. Some hotel booking websites offer a minimum of just 25 to 35% commission rates (compared to 40% from TravelBook.ph) and a maximum of just 40 to 60% (compared to 65% from TravelBook.ph). In addition, the requirements are more difficult to achieve: affiliates need to have 500 to more than 1,000 completed transactions to reach the highest commission rate (compared to just 51 from TravelBook.ph).

Sign up now to be an affiliate partner by visiting http://affiliate.travelbook.ph. Aside from enjoying the best commission rates, you will also have exclusive perks such as free out of town trips, special promos, and trainings from digital marketing professionals!

Be ready to #EnterTheScienceCircus!

Science Circus: Step Right Up! is the 5th traveling exhibition of The Mind Museum,  supported in part by Mastercard, Limkaco Industries, Uratex, and Thompson Hardware and Lighting Center.

It showcases the amusing, the peculiar, and the extraordinary in our everyday experiences, in the form of interactive exhibits that deceive the senses and boggle the mind.

While the nearly 250-year history of the circus abounds with awe-inspiring demonstrations of physical skill – such as high-flying aerial artists, to death-defying daredevils – the Science Circus challenges our traditional notions of a circus by focusing on the mind’s “acrobatic” perceptual tricks.

A festive, colorful facade will welcome guests as they enter the exhibition, which sets the tone for the sights and sounds they are about to experience. These interactive exhibits are displayed simultaneously in three adjacent Rings. Guests can go in any of the Rings in the order they please.

Ring One, or Deception Perception is a menagerie of exhibits that will prompt you to question whether to see is to believe. Can you always trust your senses? Is what you see as real as it seems? Can your brain produce motion where there is none? Your first venture into the Circus will unveil the “blindness” of your mind’s eye.

Ring Two highlights Pieces of Incredible Engineering, where guests can engage their minds in puzzles and relish how math and art come together. This central area is animated by simple machines, and engages guests in activities that evoke their inner engineer.

Last but not least, Ring Three is Encounters with the Masters, where guests can interact with and learn the secrets of the Masters of Illusion. They can take on the challenges posed by each Master, and discover how our brains can be ensnared by smoke and mirrors.

Visit the Science Circus: Step Right Up! exhibition right now for another wonderful ride through the world of Science! To make it even more enticing, a special treat awaits!

The Science Circus: Step Right Up! exhibition vividly illustrates how our everyday experiences are full of delightful secrets that we can uncover, to discover more about ourselves and the world around us.

The Mind Museum’s traveling exhibition Science Circus will be on display in the Museum for a limited run, until January 31, 2017 only. The exhibition aims to travel to cities and provinces around the country as part of The Mind Museum’s mission to bring science closer to the general public.

From the ashes of its dirt-laden image, Ozamiz City is rising loud and proud with its latest crusade to crush bad elements in its territory.

On Wednesday (January 18), an estimated 30,000 Ozamiznons marched to a public venue beside the town’ historic structure famously known as Cotta. There was a public outcry to cleanse the city and eliminate once and for all the filthy stigma that has been since associated to Ozamiz City.

On that evening, the city government has declared Alsa Ozamiz, a local movement to rally all Ozamiznons to shrug off all bad elements that has been corrupting and ravaging the once stellar status of the city.

As described by the incumbent Mayor Reynaldo “Aldong” Parojinog, Sr., Alsa Ozamiz bears the same ideals just like his grandfather’s first and original Alsa Ozamiz movement back in the 50s to fight government insurgencies… except that this time, the fight is not against rebels, but to a more profound cause — that is to fight all negative elements in the Ozamiznon society, from illegal gambling down to illegal fishing and the like, with illegal drugs on top of the list.

In a press conference held prior to the evening’s Alza Ozamiz event, the city’s father-daughter tandem composed of Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog, Sr. and Vice Mayor Nova Princess Parojinog vented out their sentiments about the latest accusations to them.

Vice Mayor Parojinog cries foul on their critics’ claim that the city’s drugs situation is “rampant”. Vice Mayor Nova Princess said all these allegations are really unfair for all the drugs initiatives that they have implemented in the city long before DU30 came in to power.

“Dito sa Ozamiz City nuon pa man matagal na kaming nakipag-gyera sa ilegal na droga,” said Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog, Sr.

Mayor Parojinog, Sr. noted that they’ve been having this extensive fight against drugs however sadly, all these initiatives all went down the drain for nothing because apparently, their accomplishments just went under the radar of the then police chiefs for some unknown reasons.
On the press meeting, the Parojinogs presented a really thick book of the anti-drugs operations report that has been taking place since 2013, long before President Duterte’s massive national anti-drug campaign.

Vice Mayor Parojinog noted that the book contains all the reports on the drug raids, drugs suspects arrests and illegal drugs confiscations undertaken by the city hall with the PNP since 2013.
“Nuong kasagsagan ng campaign ko against drugs, madaming nagalit sa akin… kahit mga kamag anak ko,” added Mayor Aldong.
At one point the Mayor was teary-eyed as he said, “Taga-rito kami sa Ozamiz tapos sisirain namin ang lugar namin?”.

 Just recently, Mayor Parojinog, Sr. had a meeting with President Duterte who also met other city and town mayors in Malacanang Palace last January 11.
 Parojinog, Sr. described his meeting with Duterte in Manila as cordial, with the Chief Executive saying that the earlier pronouncement of Parojinog’s involvement in drugs was based on report from regional intelligence units.
“Mas lalo kaming maninindigan sa aming laban sa droga bilang suporta sa Pangulong Duterte na handang itaya ang buhay para sa bayan,” stated Mayor Aldong in front of the media team.

Of course, being included on DU30’s narco-politician list (from which Mayor Aldong’s case is currently under revalidation) and having this aggressive campaign called “Alsa Ozamiz”, Mayor Aldong Parojinog’s detractors would definitely raise their eyebrows with the coincidence.
Additionally, there were social media buzz that Alsa Ozamiz is the Parojinog’s strategy to sack the newly-assigned city police chief Espinido.

However, the courageous mayor gleefully revealed that Alsa Ozamiz is actually a joint effort of the PNP and the city hall. In fact, during the Alsa Ozamiz gathering that night at the Cotta, although not present, the new city police chief had a long VTR message for all Ozamiznons that affirms his support on this anti-drugs initiatives by Mayor Aldong and VM Nova Princess (and the rest of the Ozamiz City Hall).


Later that Wednesday evening Mayor Reynaldo Parojinog, Sr. led the formal launch of the ‘Alsa Ozamiz’ anti-crime program. ICMY, the Alsa Ozamiz program is an extensive program of the Ozamiz city hall that pushes civilian-barangay partnerships with government and non-government agencies to prevent “all that is illegal” in the city i.e. illegal drugs, gambling, fishing, logging, etc…
With illegal drugs on top of their list, the leading city officials stated that they have standby programs to support this city anti-drugs campaign. This includes the proposed private partnership with rehabs as part of the follow-up initiatives for “tokhang responders” and also the potent “reward system” when it comes to intelligence gathering, among others.


On the eve of the Alsa Ozamiz declaration and right after the press briefing, some 560 videokarera machines that were voluntarily surrendered to brgy captains were crushed altogether by a payloader right in front of the city hall grounds. These videokarera and fruitgame machines are allegedly being used habitually by drug addicts as a fond pastime most notably when they are high on drugs.

Last August, 2016, Sun Life Financial Asia studied the health trends in Asia through an Ipsos survey from around 4000 Asian respondents aged 25 to 60 and with middle class incomes. They came from Mainland China, Hong Kong, India,  Indonesia,  Malaysia,  the Philippines,  Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam and were interviewed online about their attitudes towards healthy and active living, their health concerns for the future and expectations on access to healthcare.

Last year's SUN Life Financial Asia Health Index reports revealed that from the respondents in the Philippines, who are from Manila, Cebu and Davao, 50% male & 50% female; 61% is not engaging in any regular activity and that made the Philippines on top of the list from Asia.

The study proved that "Generation O" still exists. This is the population that is composed of individuals who are struggling with their health goals, who are usually overworked,  overweight and overwhelmed individuals.

With today's busy lifestyle, Filipinos tend to forget their health goals. But what really are the barriers to a healthy living according to the respondents? 57% of Filipinos blamed it on their lack of time due to work, 47% admitted that they lack personal motivation, also 47% said it's "distraction of modern life" that stops them from engaging in physical activities. Other key barriers named were cost (45%) and the lack of accessible venues for sports and recreation (36%).

While the Asia Health Index showed negative results about Filipinos' lifestyle nowadays, it also showed how positive Filipinos are towards their health. The Philippines scored the highest in the recently conducted study, garnering a score of 89%. Respondents from the Philippines were the most positive in Asia when it comes to emotional health and physical health.

"With all the things that demand our time and attention, it's usually our health that suffers because it's relegated to the least of our priorities. However, this should not be the case," Sun Life President and CEO Riza Mantaring said.

While financial stability is an important aspect so does a healthy life. This is why Sun Life launched SUN Fit and Well, a new generation wellness product that offers comprehensive life and health protection from childhood all the way to the golden years. While most products offer benefits only when an illness strikes, SUN Fit and Well covers the needs from prevention, to diagnosis, to treatment and all the way to rehabilitation.

For prevention, SUN Fit and Well provides access to GoWell, Sun Life's wellness program where members can enjoy special privileges that will help them keep mind and body fit. This includes easy access to health and wellness information, fitness and wellness events, nutrition and health experts, and more.

"Sun Life remains committed to helping Filipinos face a brighter tomorrow by being in the best of health," Mantaring added. "The results of the Asia Health Index reiterate the need to promote a healthier lifestyle, and Sun Life wants to be Filipinos' partner in pursuing this journey."

Aster Clinic, the first outpatient clinic in the Philippines; marks a milestone being an ISO 9001:2015 certified from the reputable German company TUV Rheinland. This was coincidentally awarded at the turn of 30th global anniversary of its parent company, Aster DM Healthcare LLC based in UAE.

Joyce Alumno, Country Manager of Aster DM Healthcare Philippines, identified the company’s unwavering core values, world-class standards, excellent patient experience, and technological advances in patient care as the advantages that awarded them the newest quality management system certification. 

The ISO 9001:2015 is the most difficult certification process so far and TUV Rheinland is one of the most reputable certification firms that awards such. The newest certification requires a holistic, rigid procedure as it looks into how a company manages potential risks, aside from conforming to international standards and other crucial criteria for assessment. “It was not easy to pass the 9001:2015 commendations. We had to go through a tough process, which required us to document everything. However, with our existing international standards, we were given the TUV Rheinland approval after six months. Usually, assessments can go up to two years,” Alumno said. 

World-class standards as guiding principles for superiority Alumno said that Aster Clinic is guided by standards that have been around for 30 years. “Aster DM Healthcare established a certain level of quality as benchmarks for about 300 Aster units located around the globe. We are guided by six core values, including integrity, passion, respect, compassion, excellence and unity that we have ingrained in our system and culture since we started operating.” 

Although Aster Clinic is just one year old in the country, its foundation is based on the standards set by their international counterparts in different parts in the world. Excellence and as a core value of the trusted brand Among Aster Clinic’s core values, excellence is given emphasis as it highlights the quality and superiority of the company in patient care. 

“Excellence is our most important norm. As we aim to give the best service to our customers, we continue to improve our standards. We set the benchmarks and we further raise it.

Mosquitoes, mosquitoes everywhere! But it’s not only mosquitoes that we have to deal with, it’s not only mosquitoes that can spread diseases, bacteria and viruses. There are a lot of other insects that can do harm to the environment and to our health. Just like mosquitoes; flies and cockroaches can be as harmful. They can spread different diseases just by existing; even the slightest contact can be fatal.

Mosquitoes can carry:
Zika -  the infection, known as Zika fever, often causes no or only mild symptoms, similar to a very mild form of dengue fever and can spread from a pregnant woman to her fetus.
Dengue - a mosquito-borne tropical disease which symptoms include a high fever, headache, vomiting, muscle and joint paints and skin rashes.
Malaria - a disease that can affect human and other animals, severe cases can cause yellow skin, seizures, comma or even death.
Chikunggunya - virus carrier of this disease mainly bite during the day, symptoms can be mistaken for those of dengue and zika fever, virus is diagnosed by testing the blood.

Flies can carry:
Salmonella - the most common causes of food poisoning
E.Coli - most types are harmless but some can cause bloody diarrhea, severe anemia or kidney failure, which can lead to death.
Tuberculosis - an infestious disease that generally affects the lungs, but can also affect other parts of the body.
Malaria - a disease of the blood not only caused by mosquitoes, this can be life-threatening
Typhoid - acute illness associated with fever, wherein people become carriers of the bacteria afterwards
Cholera - an infection of the small intestine that causes severe watery diarrhea, which can lead to dehydration and even death if left untreated

Cockroaches can carry:
Diarrhea - can be related to a viral or bacterial infection that ranges from mild to severe and can be dangerous to children
Dysentery - an intestinal inflammation that results in diarrhea with blood
Cholera - an infectious disease that spreads through contaminated water
Leprosy - a long-term infection that causes severe, disfiguring skin sores and nerve damage in the arms and legs
Plague - an epidemic disease that can be spread in the air, by direct contact, or very rarely by contaminated undercooked food.
Typhoid fever -  spreads through contaminated food and water or through close contact with someone who's infected

In order to avoid all these, environmental management and chemical control must be taken into account. By observing good cleanliness and proper hygiene, mosquitoes, flies and cockroaches can be kept at bay. Also, by using powerful and effective insecticides, these pests can easily be controlled and avoided.
