Action-Packed Weekend with the Philippine Punishers!

Who would've thought that with a record of 6 wins and 1 loss, they have already earned themselves a reputation across Asia. Nah, I'm not talking about some basketball team or soccer team here, I am simply talking about the team that making its way to the international sports scene. And yes, they are tough, clad like warrior titans and fight for every inch of dirt in their teams - and they call themselves the Philippine Punishers!

Tim Beasley, head coach of the Philippine Punishers, the country’s internationally competitive American football team, gathered his boys yesterday at the Army Support Command (ASCOM) at Fort Bonifacio, Taguig City to practice and to seek support from the growing fans of American Football.

I honestly didn't know that I'm about to witness this kind of football yesterday, for I never thought it exist in the country. I'm not a fan of the sports for I find it too physical, but seeing the way these guys practice and battle it out among their team members to prove that we, Filipinos, are ready for this kind of sports, well, they somehow got my attention and support.

Meet The Medical City's TMC Partner Link

In its continues effort of giving the easiest and fastest-way possible kind of service, The Medical City (TMC) launched recently an innovative service that is set to provide its patient-partners an easy and secure access to their medical records via the Internet - and guess what, its all free-of-charge. Meet The Medical City's TMC Partner Link.

An on-line facility that allows patients to view their laboratory and radiology diagnostic results, as well as their discharge summaries wherever they are, TMC Partner Link, also features various health trackers that enable patients to monitor their vital signs via a graphic interface. Though, it does not provide medical advice,  TMC Partner Link is certainly unique according to Dr. Mike Muin, Health IT Head of The Medical City, because it is integrated with the hospital Electronic Medical Records, and allow doctors to monitor their patients without frequent hospital visits. 

For now, TMC Partner Link can share blood pressure, heart rate, blood sugar and weight, but eventually as it fully embraces the concept of patient-partnership, TMC Partner Link is set to change the hospital setup in the country.

Alaska Nutribuild 345: Your Child's Much-Needed Nourishment

When schools open their doors in a few weeks, there is only one question that mothers would ask themselves:  “Is my child ready?”

This question weighs heavily on mommies with children in the pre-school ages of 3, 4 and 5. Perhaps the most interesting, and maybe even the most mishap-prone period, the 3-4-5 stage is when the vital years of developmental milestones of a child are achieved.   

This is the period when every moment becomes snapshots of discovery.  They simply burst onto a scene with unbounded enthusiasm, trying out new activities and exploring the world around them. At this time also, confidence building in terms of achievement of their developmental milestones is essential.  Thus, proper nutrition and guidance are the key elements.

“The school is a "new world" for the child – a new environment where he or she can explore, try new things, test their limits, and create new relationships. It is best that they're equipped with nutrients to support their brain and body development so that they can do these things.  Proper diet enhanced by milk that is most appropriate for their age would help them cope, adjust and succeed in that unfamiliar and exciting setting,” said resident nutritionist and dietitian for Alaska Nutribuild 345,  Tiffany Anne Santuyo.

Alaska Milk to hone Future Azkal Players

As of June 4, the Azkals had again set forth to take on a number of international challenges in the football arena. Starting with a win at a pitch in Hong Kong, they continue their journey in fulfilling the grandest achievement in the history of the sport – to compete against and level with the best football teams all over the world, as they carry the nation’s flag.

And like any other champion football club, making a mark internationally is the biggest challenge for the Azkals. “It took a while until the Filipinos caught on the Azkals’ potentials. But motivation and passion are contagious feelings. The team owes its achievements to having a common goal. Staying focused on a common vision takes a lot of team discipline. Determination to follow through to reach that goal requires hard-work, lots of practice, coaching and guidance,” said Azkals Team Manager, Dan Palami.

And today so as to share the Azkals vision of championing Philippine Football, Alaska Milk Corporation supports young, aspiring players who are out to become the best players in the country.  Through-out the years, even when there was little enthusiasm for football, Alaska has carried through in fostering and preparing young athletes for the triumphs of this game.

In a recent press conference of JobStreet.com and POEA, held at POEA PST Hall last June 5, a resounding  pledge “Matalino ako! Hindi ako magpapaloko!” echoed all over the place as they launched their latest battle against illegal recruiters in the land.

POEA Administrator Atty. Hans Cacdac discussed to us the series of co-branded educational resources  that will empower 2013 Anti-Illegal Recruitment and let everyone knows the do's and don't's in overseas employment.
