A Friendly Reminder from PSBank

Filipinos comprise one of the largest digital communities in the world. We thrive on increased connectivity and communication, primarily via social media. It has never been easier to share content online as it is today, from articles from our favorite sites to moments from our everyday lives. 


With increased sharing, however, comes a bigger target on your back, which cybercriminals will be happy to hit. They are always on the lookout for any bit of personal information that they could abuse. Your identity might get stolen, huge loans might get credited to your name without your knowledge, and your whereabouts can be traced, leaving you vulnerable to all sorts of crimes.

As such, PSBank reminds everyone that it is important to review the information that we share and post online. Moreover, the Bank says that it is also equally crucial to safe keep personal and financial records properly.

Phytosterol in Canola Oil Reduces the Risk of Coronary Heart Disease

Filipinos love fried food. They love the crispy-crunchy sound these make with every bite, but they like the delightful taste of fried food - whether it’s chicken, beef, pork or fish - even better. How can else can you explain why Filipino families are big fans of fast food chains that serve fried chicken, fried tapa, fried pork liempo, etc.?


This trend has raised the alarm among health advocates who associate frying with the liberal use of cooking oil, which is flagged as a product that is detrimental to one’s cardiovascular health.


Fortunately, not all cooking oils are the same, and not all of them are harmful to your body - not when you use the right one. 

Stay healthy during cough season with these five practical tips

For many of us, the rainy season offers relief from the long spell of oppressive heat and humidity we’ve just endured in the past months. While it’s true that wet weather banishes much of the discomforts wrought by a tropical summer, it also brings with it common ailments like colds and cough. 

Actor Ian Veneracion makes sure that he gets soothing relief from cough during the rainy season with the natural, safe, and effective Ascof Forte Menthol, his cough remedy of choice.

It doesn’t help that intermittent rains and sudden changes in temperature render us more vulnerable to bacteria and viruses. The inconveniences - flooding, heavy traffic, longer commutes - add to the stress of daily living, which, in turn, could weaken our immune systems.

Planning a DIY House Party the King Sue Way

Partying is fun with all the food and festive decors you get to share with family and friends. Hosting one at your own home - with the budget, menu, and motif to consider plus guests to entertain - could be both exciting and challenging, But if you have the knack for organizing events and if you want to personalize your get-togethers, parties will always come surprisingly easy. KING SUE believes that whatever the occasion you’re celebrating at home, parties should always be memorable. Here are some tips for home party planning 101 courtesy of King Sue:

The modern Juan paves the way for gender equality at home with Ariel’s #JuanWash

Perhaps no era has prompted a more dramatic shift in gender norms than this one; and these changes are most evident in one of the most basic facets of daily life - chores.  


Where household tasks were once viewed as “women’s work” decades prior, nowadays, a more equal division of tasks for cooking, cleaning, laundry duties, and the like in the new millennium is far from unusual. 


According to the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB), Filipino men are getting more and more involved in household work. In fact, statistics show that a significant increase was seen in the beginning of 2000s, with employed men allotting an average of 5 hours working on chores. This is a big jump, compared to the average of 1.87 hours from the numbers gathered on employed men from 1979.

What Makes a Winning Mentor at The X Factor UK?

Success isn’t always solely about talent or hard work. For aspiring singers at The X Factor UK, winning is also a matter of mentorship.

The X Factor UK Host Dermot O’Leary with Judges Sharon Osbourne, Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, and Louis Walsh

As mentors in their respective categories, judges play a huge part in guiding X Factor hopefuls from song selection to performance style - ultimately so contenders can play the game to their strengths and win the crowd.

The UK’s most talked-about talent show has given us judges who’ve not only brought excitement to audiences worldwide for the past 13 seasons, but have also raised contestants to the top of the competition. Here we list down some of the crucial factors that set a winning mentor apart from the rest of the judging panel.

Firm, honest criticism

The truth may hurt, but an X Factor mentor must be willing to evaluate singing performance without watering down facts: vocal weaknesses, poor song choices, lack of originality, and strengths that can be honed and exploited. A little kindheartedness is always appreciated, though it shouldn’t get in the way of good, honest feedback when it’s needed.

An artist by their own right

Being an accomplished performer is an advantage that can give X Factor judges an edge when it comes to mentoring. Whether it’s about singing technique or the choreography, a top-charting artist with plenty of experience on stage and on camera would definitely have much to contribute to creating a performance worthy of a standing ovation.

Years in the music industry

A winning mentor doesn’t always have to be a singer to know what makes or breaks a performance. Years of working with recording artists and entertainers would allow an X Factor judge to build a wealth of knowledge needed to assess talent and help aspirants flourish as performers. A background in music production is definitely a plus.

Unwavering support

In a contest that stirs a lot of nerves, emotional support goes a long way to helping X Factor hopefuls feel confident in their talent as well as the hard work they’ve put in to advance in the competition. Even the slightest encouragement from a mentor can inspire contestants to believe in themselves more and do their best even in the face of an enormous audience.

This Season 14, who among our judges - Simon Cowell, Nicole Scherzinger, Sharon Osbourne, and Louis Walsh - will bag the title of “winning mentor” and raise the next biggest artist to the top of the charts? Catch The X Factor Season 14 every Sunday and Monday at 10:30AM with primetime encore at 9:00PM, same day as the UK, first and exclusive on RTL CBS Entertainment.

RTL CBS Entertainment is available on SKYcable channels 53 (SD) and 196 (HD), SKYdirect channel 35, Destiny Cable channel 53 (Digital) and 89 (Analog), and Cablelink channels 37 (SD) and 313 (HD).
