Enervon Prime Gives Seniors the Chance to Live Stronger For Longer this New Year

The beginning of a New Year is a great time to start being healthy and active especially as we grow older. As we age, gradual changes in our body occur especially when it comes to strength.  Daily tasks like getting up from the bed or climbing up the stairs can become difficult. This is because part of the aging process is a condition called Sarcopenia, the natural decline in muscle mass, strength, and functionality.

Though we cannot control all the physical changes that we encounter as we age, continuing to live a healthy and active lifestyle is something we can choose to do to manage these conditions. Apart from walking and other cardio activities, our muscles need to be exercised to maintain its strength.  Simple lifting of manageable objects like bottled water and lunges can already go a long way. Supplementation of protein and Vitamind D can also help delay Sarcopenia.

#PopeFrancisPH: 5 Life Lessons from the Papal Visit 2015

To some, it was the most amazing unexpected holiday, but to millions of Roman Catholics like me, this holiday is the most life-enriching one. Despite of the threat from the number of people along the streets where Pope will pass-by; despite of the tons of barricades and policemen controlling every corner of the metropolis; and despite of the nonstop rain last Sunday, seeing a Pope in person (for the first time) was truly a blessed holiday weekend that I would love to do again and again. I mean, come on, how many times in your life that you get a chance to see a Pope in person, huh? 

The memorable and heartwarming visit of Pope Francis just ended, and albeit the heavy heart that we have to say goodbye to him, I'm pretty sure that we learned a lot from his 5-day Papal visit here in the Philippines. I listed down 5 of the life lessons that I learned over the weekend, and I hope you could share some of yours too. Feel free to post them on the comment box below.

Are you Ready for the Art Fair Philippines 2015?

Undoubtedly, the Philippines is an untapped resource for modern and contemporary art. A lot of Filipino artists today are moving towards the genre after all. One only needs to head to the city that makes it all happen, Makati, to view such masterful creations.

This 2015, Makati will once again play host to the much anticipated Art Fair Philippines, organized by Philippine Art Events Inc. To make this year's fair more exciting and to encourage participation from the international community, the Art Fair welcomes artists from other Southeast Asian countries to join the exhibition on February 5 to 8 at The Link, Ayala Center.

Among the participants include Roberto Feleo, professor, and mentor to a generation of artists. He takes over the central exhibit space in The Link’s sixth level to debut life-sized pieces that delve into a pivotal point in Philippine history. In consultation with Dr. Patrick Flores, curator of the Philippine Pavilion to the 56th Venice Biennale, a portion of the car park’s seventh level will highlight pieces by PoklongAnading, Annie Cabigting, BuenCalubayan, Mariano Ching and Yasmin Sison, Kawayan de Guia, Alfredo Esquillo Jr., Geraldine Javier, and Maria Taniguchi. These special exhibits showcase works conceptualized for Art Fair Philippines 2015. Mike Adrao’s highly detailed drawings imbue the fair’s reception area with a socio-political gothic vibe.

WD Presents the World’s Fastest 4 TB Hybrid Drive at Storage Visions 2015

WD®, a Western Digital (NASDAQ: WDC) company and world leader in storage solutions, demonstrated the world’s fastest 4 TB hybrid drive at the SATA-IO booth (#205) at Storage Visions 2015 last January 4 and 5 in Las Vegas, Nevada. WD’s prototype drive utilized the SATA Express PCI-e interface, 4 TB  3.5-inch hybrid hard drive, and up to 128 GB solid state drive to deliver compelling performance and GB-per-dollar solutions for desktop and gaming applications.

The two WD SATA Express interface demonstrations at Storage Visions 2015 included commercially available motherboards from WD partners ASRock and Gigabyte. These systems demonstrated cabled SATA Express PCI-e interconnect flexibility and configuration options for single-volume caching and RAID.

Heavy desktop usage scenarios will benefit from larger cache sizes (64 GB will be demonstrated) by enabling retention of key hot data across multiple applications, which improves overall performance. In WD’s labs, WD’s SATA Express 4 TB drive with 64 GB cache achieved a PCMark8 benchmark score of 4459, demonstrating near-SSD performance at an optimized GB-per-dollar value.

Feel the love this Valentine’s Day with Michael Bublé

There is no doubt that critically-acclaimed singer-songwriter Michael Bublé always gives his audience a night they will never forget. With his unsurpassed charm, splendid stage presence, and enchanting vocals, he transforms his concert into a date with his fans. During his full house show in Value City Arena in Ohio, Bublé mentioned that he didn't want it to be treated like an ordinary concert. He added, “It’s more like a first date. I start nice and slow, because I know some of you haven’t seen me before.”

Bublé’s electrifying performance is complemented by his natural ability to please the crowd. The Telegraph writes, “On [Bublé’s] first concert of a 10-night run at London's 02 Arena, part of the Canadian singer’s 2013 To Be Loved worldwide tour, he high-fived male fans, blew kisses to adoring women and stood atop a 20-foot structure while blasting out jazzy takes on the old standards.” The Canadian crooner, donning a full tuxedo and shiny shoes, had sold out the O2 Arena on those 10 nights. He was backed by a full orchestral band which he grandiosely introduced as their information such as their respective hometowns, colleges, and draft dates were flashed on screen. He rendered the crowd astonished with his versions of classics, but it was his chart-topping hits “Hold On” and “Haven’t Met You Yet” that got the crowd on their feet.
