SG Hassan Pasco receives a Plaque of Recognition from CDRRMO



City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office awards SM City San Pablo guard SG Hassan Pasco a plaque of recognition for his selflessness and courageous efforts in saving a life during a critical and life-threatening situation on June 25, 2023.

While conducting his regular rounds, SG Pasco noticed a 74-year-old customer experiencing difficulty breathing due to something stuck in his throat. Fortunately, as a trained guard in first aid rescue techniques, he performed the Heimlich maneuver (Abdominal Thrusts) right away, and that saved the customer.

SG Pasco is trained in first aid rescue techniques and regularly undergoes refresher courses with the assistance of a Certified First Aid Trainer from the Philippine Red Cross. These training sessions are conducted every morning before the mall opens.

CDRRMO Management Council in San Pablo, Laguna said that his quick thinking, decisive action, compassion, and unwavering dedication to the preservation of human life have made a remarkable impact on the community. SG Pasco also received P10,000 from the city Administration Office.

 

 

 

 

Into the Mind of a Champion

 


Being a champion is not merely defined by winning competitions; it is an embodiment of resilience, unwavering determination, and hard work. Manny Pacquiao and Hidilyn Diaz stand as the epitomes of true champions in the Philippines, showcasing the indomitable Filipino spirit despite many challenges in their lives and careers.

Diaz and Pacquiao together with Ibuprofen Paracetamol (Alaxan FR), a pain medicine trusted by Filipinos for decades, is encouraging countless individuals to continue being a champion without compromising overall well-being. Here are tips from the actual experience of these historic sports icons on how to attain a winning mindset:

Being a champion takes discipline

Attaining any goal requires relentless focus, entailing a mindset that stays committed even when faced with hurdles. At the young age of 11, Diaz already displayed potential to become a strong weightlifter. Despite encountering setbacks and failures throughout her weightlifting journey, she remained undeterred. Through years of training and more than a decade of competing, a once-dreamer is now one of the giants of Philippine sports, bagging the Philippines' first-ever Olympic gold medal at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

"Okay mangarap, but you really have to work hard at kailangan may disiplina. Minsan natatalo ka, minsan nananalo ka." Diaz expressed the reality that being a champion takes time and does not come in an instant. "As long as hindi ka nag-gi-give up, kayang kaya mo ‘yan, laban lang," she added.

[It’s okay to dream, but you really have to work hard and be disciplined. Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win. As long as you don’t give up, you can definitely do it. Just keep fighting.]

No pain, no gain

As cliché as it may sound, no pain without gain is truly a part of every journey toward greatness. But the game changer is knowing how to bounce back from pain quickly.  In Pacquiao’s case as a boxer, pain is a constant from training to the actual fight and even after every game. The force and power of punches to different parts of the body can hurt, which is why Pacquiao emphasizes the importance of having a trusted companion to get through the pain.

"Minsan hindi ako makalakad, hindi ako makatayo. Pati daliri ko masakit pero ‘yun yung sinisigurado ko mula noon hanggang ngayon, kasama ko ang Alaxan sa tagumpay—during, after training, and every fight," Pacquiao testified. "Pagkatapos ng fight, masakit katawan ko, pag-inom ko ng Alaxan, pag-tulog at pag-gising ko sa umaga, wala na.”

[There are times when I can’t walk, I can’t stand up. Even my fingers hurt but one thing I’ve always made sure of from then until now is that Alaxan is with me—during, after training, and every fight. After the fight, my body aches, but when I take Alaxan, by the time I sleep and wake up in the morning, the pain is gone.]

Take care of your health

Apart from strengthening and conditioning, overall well-being is important to function properly and become prepared for any competition. With this, Diaz and Pacquiao highlight the importance of being disciplined and cautious in terms of lifestyle habits, including diet regimens and taking medications as necessary

“Pagdating sa diet, more on fish, chicken at gulay. Mula nung bata ako maingat ako masyado sa mga pagkain,” Pacquiao shared. “Pag lumalaban ako lagi ako may dalang Alaxan, more than 20 years ko ginagamit at wala namang adverse effects sa akin.

[When it comes to diet, I prefer fish, chicken, and vegetables. Ever since I was a child, I have been very careful with the food I eat. I always bring Alaxan with me whenever I fight. I’ve been using it for more than 20 years, and I haven’t experienced any adverse effects.]

Alaxan is a synergistic combination of Ibuprofen+Paracetamol that was found to have the highest success rate among OTC pain medicines tested, according to a 2015 scientific review by Cochrane, a world-renowned independent research institution.  Scientific reviews also show that Ibuprofen+Paracetamol is not likely to cause serious harmful effects on our body when used at the recommended dose.

Have a support group

According to Diaz, it takes a team to win and succeed. Athletes such as herself and Pacquiao benefit from the professional support provided by their group of coaches and nutritionists. Similarly for ordinary workers, a support system comprising a superior and colleagues is crucial, especially in the early stages of their career. Surrounding oneself with reliable individuals is instrumental not only in acquiring essential skills but also in fostering the right mindset and attitude required to excel in one's life.

Stay humble

Being a world champion comes with fame, recognition, and wealth. Achieving extraordinary accomplishments may give a sense of fulfillment and cloud judgment, but this is never the case for Pacquiao. He reiterates how humility is a virtue that allows him to remain grounded and always remember to look back at where he came from. He shared that helping and giving back to the community is how you really leave a mark in this world.

Sony Philippines Marks World Nature Conservation Day with Sustainability Initiatives

 


Known worldwide for its groundbreaking innovations, Sony is not only pushing the boundaries of technology, but is also leading the charge in supporting sustainability and conservation efforts. In the Philippines, Sony takes great pride in its initiatives that aim to inspire others to be conscious of their impact on the environment.

 

Sony is deeply aware of the significant responsibility it bears as an environmental steward. The company stands at the forefront of environmental conservation efforts, consistently taking proactive measures to reduce its ecological footprint and safeguard precious natural resources. The passion for environmental conservation also runs deep among Sony Philippines’ employees, who actively engage in diverse initiatives that drive positive change for the planet.

 

In recent months, Sony Philippines has partnered with several communities and organizations to kickstart impactful environmental efforts like their tree-planting activity at the Masungi Georeserve, and their conservation and sustainability activities such as ocean clean up, mangrove planting, and donations in Santiago Island in Bolinao Pangasinan, to name a few.

To preserve biodiversity and help care for the area, Sony Philippines’ volunteer employees went on a hike on Masungi Georeserve’s Legacy Trail and planted fruit bearing trees. This activity aims to help combat the effects of greenhouse gas, reduce soil erosion, and lessen the ozone layer pollution, among others.

 

Meanwhile, Sony Philippines also conducted a comprehensive conservation effort in Bolinao Pangasinan in partnership with Hands on Manila and the Samahan ng Maliliit na Mangingisda ng Brgy. Victory (SMMV). Through this initiative, 70 sacks of non-biodegradable waste were collected through the coastal clean-up activity, while 3125 mangrove propagules were thoughtfully planted along the shoreline of Brgy. Victory, Santiago Island, promoting coastal restoration and protection. Sony also donated community kits containing rechargeable headlamps, aqua shoes, whistles and goggles.




In line with the World Conservation Day, Sony Philippines aims to be at the forefront of sustainability and environmental responsibility, and aims to continue its unwavering commitment to make the planet a better place. By engaging its employees and partnering with local communities, the company aims to set an inspiring example for everyone to practice in their personal lives and hopefully, extend the ripple to each volunteer’s home.

Takeda and Cancer Warriors Foundation unite for better cancer care access




Takeda Healthcare Philippines Inc. (“Takeda Philippines”) recently partnered with Cancer Warriors Foundation Inc., a patient support organization for families of children with childhood cancer, strengthening calls for wider access to cancer care in rural and peri-urban communities in the country.  

 

Through this partnership, Takeda will provide a grant with the goal of supporting the group’s efforts in localizing the National Integrated Cancer Control Act (NICCA) through the establishment of  InterlocalHealth Zones, which are systemized zones made up of different local health facilities, dedicated to cancer care. 

 

NICAA was signed into law in 2019, with the aim to ensure improved access, better quality care, and in the process, increased survivorship of cancer patients. The act also seeks to reduce the financial burden experienced by cancer patients and their families. 

 

The challenge continues

 

Cancer continues to be one of the leading causes of mortality in the Philippines. With the rising number of cancer cases, access to care continues to be a challenge for several Filipinos, particularly for those residing in rural and peri-urban communities. Access to cancer information, services, support providers, and even clinical trials have been very limited. Given this, patients in these areas often present with advanced or late-stage cancers, and a significant number may go undiagnosed and unseen by medical practitioners. 

 

To improve cancer care, increase curability, and create healthier communities, it is crucial to establish alliances across stakeholders and sectors. These collaborations will be instrumental in addressing the current gaps in cancer care delivery. 

 

“NICCA not only focuses on basic integrated care, but also holistic care. Care should go beyond just the medical aspect, but also to the psychosocial aspect as well, including patients who survive cancer. Hence, it is crucial to form alliances with LGUs and other sectors to underline the importance of NICCA’s integrated and holistic approach to cancer care,” shared Carmen “Menchie” Auste, Chief Executive Officer of Cancer Warriors Foundation Inc. 

 

A uniting voice for localizing NICAA

 

Takeda has been a longstanding advocate of broadening access to medicines and supporting the Philippine government in strengthening the healthcare system. Through partnerships with non-profit organizations, patient groups, and key entities, Takeda engages in disease-awareness campaigns, policy advocacy, and advocacy network building, among other initiatives.

 

“Takeda looks forward to collaborating with Cancer Warriors Foundation in ensuring that NICCA becomes fully realized, which will help provide access to healthcare for cancer patients, their carers, and the general public, beginning with the establishment of Interlocal Health Zones,” Takeda Philippines Country Manager Loreann Villanueva shared.  

 

The Cancer Warriors Foundation Inc., a non-profit organization dedicated to uniting parents against pediatric cancer, has long sustained calls for making cancer care accessible especially to patients and their families who take care and look after them. 

 

“We hope that this partnership will zero-in on the implementation of the interlocal health zone, which will be a model of a how a primary health care system can be strengthened all the way up to the district level, essentially localizing the goal of NICAA to improve nationwide cancer healthcare,” Carmen “Menchie” Auste added. The first Interlocal Health Zone will be in CALABARZON Region, which the group sees as one of the priority regions for cancer care.

SM Supermalls, Mesa ni Misis team up for the healthiest SuperMoms Meetup

 


Just in time for Nutrition Month, SM Supermalls partnered with Mesa ni Misis to celebrate the healthiest SuperMoms Meetup at the SM Megamall Event Atrium on July 22, Saturday.

 

SuperMoms gathered once again for the biggest and grandest super momma convention, which also marked the launch of Juana’s Table, the newest recipe book by Mesa ni Misis’ Juana Manahan Yupangco.

 


“We SuperMoms hold the power to shape the future of our children's health. By embracing a plant-based diet and introducing it to our families, we can ensure that our little ones grow up strong, vibrant, and armed with the necessary tools to lead a healthy and fulfilled life.” said Grace Magno, SM Supermalls Vice President for Corporate Marketing.

 

SM Supermalls and Mesa ni Misis, through the recipe book, aimed to educate moms on the importance of healthy and sustainable eating. Written by Yupangco herself, who is a food security champion and advocate for local produce and farmers, the book is filled with healthy and affordable meal options that moms can easily create in their kitchen using the freshest produce found at the SM Sunday Market.

 


During the event, participants were treated to a cooking demo by Yupangco, who was then joined by celebrities and certified SuperMoms, Dimples Romana and Patti Grandidge Herrera who whipped up a veggie gimbap using fresh, local ingredients. They showcased how easily one can create a delicious and healthy meal for the whole family using one of the many recipes found in the book. Also, moms got the chance to discover how to practice sustainability in the household through cooking.

 


The meetup featured on-ground activities for moms such as the SuperMoms Club Photo wall where SuperMoms got to take photos with their goodie bags and a raffle draw where lucky SuperMoms won special prizes and other awesome surprises from partners and sponsors.

 

Started in 2018, SM Supermalls’ SuperMoms Club is the Philippines’ largest mommy community on Facebook. Its on-ground event, the SuperMoms Meetup, has become an avenue to further build a stronger community of inspiring women and super mommas who uplift, support, and encourage each other.

 


“This meetup was designed with your well-being in mind. We want to make you feel valued and cared for, and at the same time, we want to give you a voice to be heard at home, in the workplace, and in your community. Your SM Supermalls family will always be here for you, listening to you and understanding your needs and helping you throughout your motherhood journey,” said Juana Manahan Yupangco.

 

The healthiest SuperMoms Club meetup in the metro was supported by SM Markets, SM Store, Fully Booked,Viu, NutriAsia, UnMeat, Téviant, Skin Poem, Designer Blooms and Blims Furniture.
