Over 2,000 stores of the Jollibee Group join Earth Hour 2022

Jollibee Group brands participate annually in the Earth Hour initiative that aims to raise awareness on the need for collective action to protect the environment.

Over 2,000 stores nationwide from the different brands of the Jollibee Group participated in this year’s Earth Hour, the world’s largest movement that promotes carbon footprint reduction to stop climate change.

Participating stores of Jollibee, Mang Inasal, Red Ribbon, and Greenwich turned off the lights in their stores and signages for an hour. Billboards and other out-of-home ads of Jollibee Group brands were also switched off for an hour during this period.

“Participating annually in the Earth Hour is part of our efforts in the Jollibee Group to demonstrate the commitment to helping protect the planet as an organization. Efforts like Earth Hour are important in raising more awareness among our people, our customers, and the public on the realities of climate change and the need for individual and collective action to protect the environment,” said Pepot Miñana, Chief Sustainability and Public Affairs Officer of the Jollibee Group.

First started by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in 2007, Earth Hour has grown into one of the world’s largest grassroots movements for the environment today. Held every year, on the last Saturday of March, the movement engages around 190 countries and territories, all acting in ensuring a sustainable future for the planet and its people.

Puerto Princesa: Paradise Regained

The Royal Treatment at Puerto Princesa

With safety protocols firmly enforced, Puerto Princesa is poised to again welcome tourists with open arms. In recent years, the highly urbanized city and tourist haven has been paralyzed by the Covid-19 pandemic, then pummeled by Typhoon Odette. But it is now on the road to recovery—as spectacularly as its scenic, romantic and gastronomic attractions.

“The tourism industry is the lifeblood of Puerto Princesa, along with agriculture. Almost 15,000 people directly or indirectly benefit from tourism. In varying degrees, most of the recent construction and development projects are related to tourism: hotel-building, parks, cruise-ship ports, street lights, roads and many more. Unfortunately, some of these have been on hold since the onset of the pandemic,” discloses Demetrio “Toto” Alvior Jr., the city tourism officer.

The Royal Connection

Puerto Princesa, the capital of postcard-perfect Palawan, sprawls across 253,982 hectares of captivating coastlines stretched over 106 kilometers. Due to its strategic geographical location, it has sufficient depth to allow ships of all sizes to anchor, earning a reputation as a “Princess of Ports,” or in Spanish, “Puerto Princesa.”

There’s no contention that Puerto Princesa is one of the country’s greatest pleasures. A holiday destination universally beloved by travelers, beach-combers and trekkers; a bustling business center with a rural allure; a provincial vibe with modern amenities; and a clean and green city recognized for its lush forests, fresh air and frontier character.

Rising Above Covid-19

The city of Puerto Princesa has been struggling to get to its feet since the outbreak of Covid-19 in early 2020. The lack of tourists, which is the main industry, has forced hundreds of tourism-related businesses to close, leaving thousands of tourism workers unemployed.

“The public-health crisis forced them to find alternative sources of income, which was made more difficult because of the restrictions of movement due to several lockdowns,” Mr. Alvior reveals. “One factor of low tourist arrivals is the fluctuating number of Covid cases, which in turn affects the determination of quarantine requirements and national government intervention policies.”

Today, Puerto Princesa is experiencing record lows in terms of economic losses, losing around P5 billion a year for the past two years from potential tourist receipts.

“The City Tourism Department has been strengthening its social media campaigns to encourage local tourists to visit local attractions, in a bid to boost much-needed revenues to the ailing tourism sector,” a cautiously optimistic Mr. Alvior says. “We have one important wish in the City Tourism Department, and that is to prioritize the aids for the Typhoon Odette-affected tourism industry here.”

The goal is to regain the city’s glory as an eco-tourism capital. “Our 2022 goals are full restoration of all the tourist attractions affected by Typhoon Odette such as the completion of the construction of the cruise-ship port and other man-made tourist attractions. There will be wide, extensive and aggressive promotions of Puerto Princesa to the local and international market.”

The Last Frontier

Puerto Princesa has a plethora of tourist spots. But many tourists who visit the city put the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, one of the New7Wonders of Nature, on top of their list. As the jump-off point for exploring the world-famous Tubbataha Reef, the city also hosts a fair share of adventurers.

“Since the Covid-19 outbreak, we have never ceased to hope that the future will be better. This year 2022 is no different. And while what we want is a full recovery, we cannot afford to be careless when taking big steps. As we begin to truly understand the gravity of the situation, we also come to realize that our moves must be consistent with the bigger picture such as the national situation,” Mr. Alvior says.

Since February 10, the city has been happily welcoming more visitors once again, hoping that the arrival numbers will soon be back to pre-pandemic levels. In this initiative, the tourism department shares the privilege on with the private sector.

“While the government is the administrator of the State, the private sector is the bloodline. The government and the private sector are two inseparable factors for Puerto Princesa to prosper, and more importantly, to recover,” Mr. Alvior says. “The key to recovery is to enable and support the private sector to keep or resume their business operations. When it comes to the city’s biggest partners, apart from government agencies, it is the collective impact of small-business operations.”

Puerto Princesa may be “The Last Frontier,” but the City Tourism Department is confident that it will always be the first choice of every traveler.

Huawei: Digital Innovation Never Stop for a Greener Intelligent World

Huawei plans to boost investment in innovation to build new products, to enhance and accelerate new technologies. The company held its 19th annual Global Analyst Summit in Shenzhen from April 26 to 27.

Ken Hu, Huawei’s Rotating Chairman, speaking at HAS 2022

For more than 30 years, Huawei have been innovating nonstop to create value for our customers and society. Innovation has become a core part of Huawei’s DNA. Despite considerable operational challenges over the past few years, we have continued to steadily increase our investment in R&D. For nearly a decade, our strategy has been to re-invest at least 10% of our annual revenue back into R&D. Last year, we invested 22%. Huawei’s Rotating Chairman Ken Hu said during the event.

Hu went on to discuss the specific initiatives that Huawei is working on to realize its vision for the future. “We are currently focusing on three areas: strengthening our approach to innovation, equipping all industries with the tools and knowledge they need to go digital, and helping build a low-carbon world.”

According to him, Huawei sees two major trends: all industries are going digital, and the world is setting its sights on low-carbon development. “Needless to say, no organizations these days are asking themselves whether or not they ought to go digital. They’re more concerned about how to go digital and how to do it well.” Said Hu.

In Huawei’ view, the ICT and finance industries were first-movers, so their transformation goes deep – all the way down to their core production systems. Industries like electric power, fuel, and manufacturing are using digital technology to solve production challenges, whereas the digital journey of industries like real-estate, construction, and agriculture has only just begun. Because these industries are at different stages of the transformation process, they naturally have different concerns.

For the past 10 years, we’ve been going through our own digital transformation. We’ve gained a lot of valuable experience along the way, Hu said.

Moving forward, Huawei is taking active steps to boost its business resilience and ensure steady development. “We have to keep the ball rolling through nonstop innovation, creating value for customers and society,” said Ken Hu. “We look forward to working more closely with our customers and partners to build a greener intelligent world.”

Huawei: Attracting world-class talent with world-class challenges

Huawei kicked off its 19th annual Global Analyst Summit in Shenzhen. Huawei’s Rotating Chairman Ken Hu said that the company will continue to boost investment in innovation to build new products and enhance and accelerate new technologies.

“At Huawei, when we talk about innovation, the first thing we think is people. We hope to attract world-class talent with world-class challenges, and work together to push the limits of science and technology,” said Hu, referring to the Top Minds recruitment program that the company launched on its website.

Huawei’s Rotating Chairman Ken Hu

“We don’t care where you’re from, where you graduated, or what you studied,” he continued. “As long as you have a dream for the future and believe you can make it happen, we want you to come and join us. We provide world-class challenges, a powerful platform, and all the resources you need to explore the unknown.”

Moving forward, Huawei is taking active steps to boost its business resilience and ensure steady development. “We have to keep the ball rolling through nonstop innovation, creating value for customers and society,” said Ken Hu. “We look forward to working more closely with our customers and partners to build a greener intelligent world.”

Dr. Zhou Hong, President of Huawei’s Institute of Strategic Research, said that “everything we imagine today is very likely to be too conservative – too little – for tomorrow. We have to meet the future with bold hypotheses and a bold vision, and throw caution to the wind as we push to break through bottlenecks in theory and technology. This is the only way forward.” He outlined ten challenges that Huawei hopes to address moving forward.

Two scientific questions:

  • How do machines perceive the world, and can we build models that teach machines how to understand the world?
  • How can we better understand the physiological mechanisms of the human body, including how the eight systems of the body work, as well as human intent and intelligence?

Eight tech challenges:

  • New sensing and control capabilities, e.g., brain-computer interfaces, muscle-computer interfaces, 3D displays, virtual touch, virtual smell, and virtual taste
  • Real-time, unobtrusive blood pressure, blood sugar, and heart monitoring, and strong AI-assisted discoveries in chemical pharmaceuticals, biopharmaceuticals, and vaccines
  • Application-centric, efficient, automated, and intelligent software for greater value and better experience
  • Reaching and circumventing Shannon’s limit to enable efficient, high-performance connectivity both regionally and globally
  • Adaptive and efficient computing models, non-Von Neumann architectures, unconventional components, and explainable and debuggable AI
  • Inventing new molecules, catalysts, and components with intelligent computing
  • Developing new processes that surpass CMOS, cost less, and are more efficient
  • Safe, efficient energy conversion and storage, as well as on-demand services

Huawei said, most Asia Pacific countries have very clear and forward-looking digital strategies. As the Asia Pacific region goes digital, a skilled ICT workforce will be critical. The region has a unique advantage in this area because it has a younger population than the US or Europe. Accelerating the development of ICT talent in the region will require concerted efforts from governments, businesses, and people from all walks of life.

In the Philippines, Huawei also had several programs for cultivating the local ICT talents, such as ICT Academy, Seeds for the Future, covered the Philippines for years, benefited over 9000 ICT students, according to Daniel Guo, the Vice President of Huawei Philippines.

THE “LA JEUNESSE” EXPERIENCE

We were all born with beautiful, supple and wrinkle free skin, but with the ravages of time, unhealthy lifestyle and modern living, our skin has taken its toll.  Skin is the largest organ in our body and it requires constant care and nourishment to stay healthy.  Our skin is the mirror of what we are. That is the reason why we combine skin care treatments with detox for cleansing and weight loss management and wellness program.

The La Jeunesse Team believes that beauty is not just skin deep.  This belief paved the way for the inception of a new Luxury Aesthetic Lifestyle Center that provides total, multi-dimensional services under a new Holistic approach.

From the French word “JEUNESSE” meaning YOUTH, “La Jeunesse is a promise of constantly evolving and medically and scientifically advances techniques and breakthroughs to youthfulness and beauty.

The team will help you create that significant change.  Our highly experienced and skilled medical staff consists of 3 aesthetic doctors, 10 registered nurses, 5 wellness consultants, a nutritionist, a life coach and a medical director.   You will not only enjoy a professional and credible medical service and treatment, but also the support and guidance of lifestyle experts who can lead you to what you can do and achieve every single day to feel and look better than you have your whole life.

Owner, Ms. Naicie Lee Salamagos

Ms. Naicie Lee Salamagos has an extensive knowledge and exposure gained from working with aesthetic, life style and fitness, quips “that this approach make people realize that being beautiful is being healthy inside out.”   She has worked with hundreds of clients seeking youthful and healthy skin, and seen them comeback with acne breakouts or regain the weight after an expensive fat-reducing treatment because of crash dieting or stress eating.  Having realized that for a long term, effective result, and not just a quick aesthetic fix, what they needed is an inner transformation, a lifestyle change.

La Jeunesse combines the latest skin care treatments with weight loss systems in a complete tranquility and pampering that clients could expect from a wellness spa. The center feels very private, luxurious, and relaxing: blue and white color scheme, sleek minimalist look with European touches.  This ambience is created to impart a relaxed and comfortable feeling the moment a client walks in. “I want clients to feel and believe they are in a place where they can attain a transformation,” says Salamagos.  “You walk in, lie down and when you get out it’s a NEW You.”

We help create this new you by offering a full array of skincare services that includes deep cleansing facials to anti-aging and whitening programs such as fractional needling, platelet rich plasma, V lifts, laser rejuvenation treatments, and more. “You can feel more beautiful and sexier in as fast as an hour.  It is more accessible to everyone because treatments are quick and effective,” says Salamagos

Second, our weight management programs are integrated with breakthrough technology such as-  -intravenous L-carnitine, mesotherapy, lipocavitation, lypocryoporation, and tripollar radio frequency, aqualyx with meal plan and life coaching.  Our nutritionists design meal plans that help maintain weight loss without the hunger or deprivation.  Life coaches help identify the cause of emotional eating, and extend that essential assistance needed to transform unhealthy habits.  This vital endeavor is not only a tool for a successful metamorphosis but as a vehicle to create a healthy way of living.

Third, the syntheses of technology and the care of professionals of the La Jeunesse team ensures a healthier client.  A healthy meal plan is the foundation of a youthful skin and a sound body that enables a client to withstand the pressure of everyday life.   A stress management program identifies the cause of emotional eating and help the client break it’s cycle thus imparting a sense of triumph and accomplishment in him.  This in turn would give the client a sense of confidence and assert control in his life.  The transformation then is felt and visible in his outer appearance.  The quality of life is changed for the better- – stronger willed, confident, healthy and a change of perspective of living.

We serve a lifestyle need, not just a one-time beauty and a wellness experience. We work with short and long-term programs with a long-lasting health benefits,” says Salamagos. It is the La Jeunesse Metamorphosis, and as you can see, it goes far deeper than just beautiful skin.”

II.  SKIN HEALTH

Warts Removal

Warts are small, self-limited tumors caused by Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Although warts are considered contagious, it is not uncommon for just one family member to have them. In addition, they often affect just one part of the body but they can be spread by picking them. For the removal of the wart C02 Laser is a tool of first choice, a device that emits high energy laser light which produces coagulation of the blood vessels & necrosis of the wart without damage to the surrounding tissue & optimizing the recovery of the treated area, while reducing the risk of bleeding & infection. The resulting scabs clear in 2 to 3 days.

Syringoma Removal

Syringoma is a non-cancerous bump or clusters of bumps that is caused by an overgrowth of cells within the sweat glands (eccrine), can be inherited and often runs in families. Treatment of Periorbital Syringoma involves the removal of lesions by C02 laser, with minimal scarring and prevention of recurrence. As the skin is very thin around the eyes, the treatment is done very carefully and gradually, usually in two sessions. The first session is to clear most or all of the lumps, and the 2nd is to make sure that the small fractions and deep part of the gland that resurfaced are eliminated.

Milia Removal

When the skin cells are not completely shed, keratin builds up beneath the epidermis forming a wall that is 1 to 3 millimeters in diameter. The rounded bump is referred to as milium (plural, milia) and often appears around the eyes & cheeks as raised bumps that are sometimes mistaken for white heads. Milia seed removal by C02 laser is the easiest and fastest without scarring. Some milia may need 2 or 3 treatment sessions, spaced 1 month apart.

Acne Treatment Program

Acne may be attributed to genetics or hormonal imbalance. Contributing factors, or acne triggers, include lifestyle choices, such as diet, sleep pattern, hygiene, or stress. When skin does not exfoliate as it should, dead cells build up on the skin surface and inside the pore. Dead cells mix with trapped oil and pores become clogged, resulting in blackheads and whiteheads. All cases of acne are not created equal, and neither are all acne treatments.

Although all acne has its roots in the same process, not all acne is equally severe and not all cases of acne will respond to the same types of treatment. A recommendation then for acne skin care is a combination of oral medication, topical medicines and treatments that prevent acne infections and scarring. A less inflammatory and toxic diet is highly recommended.

Deep Cleansing Facials

Deep pore facial treatments are tailored to each client’s need. There are a variety of skin care conditions and needs and certain products benefit different skin conditions. Facial cleansing begins with either a facial scrub, or a gentle cleanser that contain AHAs. Once the skin is cleansed, the Aesthetician begins the exfoliation process which dissolves the top layer of the skin cells.

Enzymes that are common in facial exfoliation are activated by steam. Steam helps to open the pores and relax the client as well, once the skin is exfoliated and the pores are open, the Aesthetician will begin Extractions of comedones from the pores. To complete the facial service, a facial mask is applied. Facial masks come in many different varieties and specify in different skin care concerns. A moisturizer or sun block then is applied after the mask is removed. It is important to maintain this regimen every 6-8 weeks for optimal results.

III. WEIGHT MANAGEMENT

Meal Planning

Meal planning is a huge part of the fat loss equation, it is the backbone. It is an awareness of the various nutrients in food, their functions, and requirement in the body. It is essential to make sure that you are eating the right food in the right quantities, without starvation. By guiding clients to make healthy dietary changes that ensures nutritional adequacy of the food they eat everyday that provide weight loss without depriving the body of nutrients. The knowledge of recommended dietary allowances and composition of food is necessary for the selection of a sufficient diet by translating the nutritional needs into kinds and amounts of food that we should eat. Weight loss is 70% what we eat and 30% what we do.

Life and Wellness Coaching Just about everyone has a vision of his/her ideal weight and health; it is quite difficult to make it a reality for some. Then what you need is a wellness coach. Just like the people who push athletes to greatness in sports, life and wellness coaches push their clients to find satisfaction from their lifestyle. Helping clients understand themselves and making them analyze the factors that contribute to their weight gain through

self awareness. We then guide our clients find the motivation and tools to get to their physical health goals.

  • Those goals include:
  • Lose unwanted pounds
  • Eat healthy and better food
  • Maintain weight loss and healthy youthful skin

Intravenous-L-Carnitine

L-Carnitine is a naturally occurring amino acid which plays a vital role in the metabolism of the fat. It functions as a transporter of fatty acids into the mitochondria, the metabolic furnace of the cell. Some people, however, may not have enough carnitine because their bodies cannot make enough or can’t transport it into tissues so it can be used. L-Carnitine can be taken intravenously either by normal injection or using a butterfly. It enhances the body’s ability to metabolize fat thereby enhancing energy levels. This means faster muscle building and fat burning resulting in weight loss. It also improves heart, brain function, and muscular coordination. It is a powerful anti-oxidant that helps our bodies to get rid of toxins.

Mesotherapy

The French-imported medical technique developed in 1952 by Dr. Michell Pistore, involves the injection of small amounts of various medication into the mesoderm, the layer of fat and connective tissue under the skin. When those small amounts of medication are injected into the mesoderm, underlying fat is melted.  Mesotherapy treatment is a non-surgical cosmetic solution aimed at diminishing problem areas in the body such as cellulite, excess weight, body contouring, and face/neck rejuvenation. It is administered via numerous injections containing various types of FDA approved medicines, vitamins, and minerals. Mesotherapy is painless, causes virtually no scarring, although swelling and bruising may appear in the area for a few days.

Benefits of Mesotherapy

  • Fat reduction/ Weight loss
  • Cellulite reduction
  • Lower blepharoplasty
  • Facial rejuvenation

ULTRASCULPT (Lipocavitation)

Lipo Cavitation involves the delivery of ultra sonic waves that “separate” fat cells for removal. Medical literatures indicate that ultrasonic waves in effective cavitation treatments lead to “bursting” of fat cells.

It is a non-invasive treatment which aids in the reduction of localized fat deposits. By using leading technology it converts fat cells into liquid which can then be naturally drained by the body’s own natural filtration system. Generally, one fat cavitation treatment lasts 25-30mins where a single part of the body is treated.

Cavitation is not a method to lose weight but to reshape the body. It is particularly indicated for the reduction of adiposity, the famous “love handles” that won’t go away with diet and exercise.

Lipo Cryoporation

Reduce local adiposities by means of a combined, regulated, and controlled heat extraction and vacuum in a single therapy known as Lipocryolysis. It reduces the epidermic temperature up to 3, 1 ℃ an absolute safe temperature that takes care of epidermal, dermal, and every surrounding tissue. With the 3, 1 ℃, in epidermis during the 25 minutes or more, an intra-adipositary temperature below 10, 2 ℃ will be achieved. At these temperatures crystallization of saturated fatty acids inside adipocytes is achieved. And these unleash the apoptic stimuli that will finally destroy the fat cell in the incoming days or weeks. A typical fat loss in the treated area is 20%-40%. This treatment is best suited to pockets of fat, such as “love handles”.

CONTEUR ADVANCE (Tripolar RF)

Tripollar technology painlessly delivers focused and optimal radio-frequency (RF) energy to the skin surface and to sub-cutaneous fat layers. Tripollar works by emitting controlled radio frequency energy via electrodes directly onto the skin surface of the treated area as well as the subcutaneous fat layers beneath it.

The required energy can be accurately applied on the facial and body areas and penetrate deeply as needed so as to remove excess fat without harming nearby tissues. The stimulation of collagen rebirth results in the shrinking of fat cells, thus reducing the appearance of cellulite. Tripoli RF for skin tightening and cellulite reduction can be achieved in one treatment. It penetrates the skin layers to selectively heat the skin tissue and the extra-cellular matrix (ECM) where the collagen fibers are embedded.

IV. SKIN LIGTHENING  & REJUVENATION

Collagen Treatment

Collagen is found naturally in human skin layer for scaffolding our skin structures. It provides support, and gives the young, firm, smooth skin. With age, the skin loses the ability to produce more collagen and hence lost of elasticity, appearance of wrinkles and fine lines occurred. The benefits derived from injectable collagen are;

  • To smooth out wrinkles and fine lines around the area of eyes, face, chin & body skin.
  • To increase volume of lips
  • To elevate scars and depression
  • Smoothens and firms skin
  • Increase body immune system
  • Brighter complexion, prevents scurvy
  • Fade away scars & dark spots
  •  Reduces facial and skin fine lines or wrinkles

Mechanical Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion is skin resurfacing procedure that uses a rapidly rotating device to sand the outer layers of the skin. It produces substantial changes in the appearance of the skin by carefully controlling the depth of skin damage. This produces a wound that heals in a manner that is cosmetically superior to the previous state of the skin.  Dermabrasion is best for; Acne scarring, Traumatic Scars, Keloids, Wrinkles, Tattoo Removal. This procedure makes way for a new, smoother layer of skin to replace the skin that’s been treated.

Micro Dermabrasion

Micro dermabrasion works on all skin types and tones. it makes subtle changes, causing no skin color change or scarring. It is not suited for deeper problems such as scars, stretch marks, wrinkles or deep acne scars. With micro dermabrasion, there is less downtime and it does not require surgery or anesthetics. Tiny crystals are sprayed onto the skin to gently remove the outer layer of the sin. It is basically an exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that leaves skin looking softer and brighter.

CELANU (Fractional Needling)

Sagging cheeks, fine lines on the face, hard and tough scars, acne pits, enlarged pores and stretch marks can be minimized quickly and easily through fractional needling. The method takes seconds to make hundreds of tiny puncture wounds in the skin. Bio-Active hyaluronic acid or another active agent is then injected through these punctures. It stimulates the skin’s own regenerative properties while using fractional cartridge to actively inject hyaluronic acid into the skin. The Fractional Needle is most effective in treating;

  • Fine lines around the mouth, cheeks, neck & cleavage area
  • Scars
  • Wrinkles & light pigmentation

The fractional technique is more effective in treating poor circulation tissue structure. It powerfully stimulates the circulation, often causing the minute punctured wounds they create to immediately fill up with blood. The introduction of blood back into the tissue ensures the formation of essential skin structures during the healing process, such as capillaries and pores. As a consequence, the epidermis returns to proper functioning, with color returning as a result of renewed pigment production.

ND YAG Laser

ND YAG Laser work by emitting a wavelength of high energy light, which when focused on a certain skin condition will create heat and destroy diseased cells. The following skin disorders can be treated with ND Yag Laser beams.

Vascular Lesions;

  • Spider and thread veins in the face and legs
  • Capillary vascular malformations (vascular birth marks)
  • Varicose veins and facial veins
  • Hemangioma’s

Pigmented Lesions;

  • Brown age spots, Freckles Mongolian Spots
  • Naevus of OTA, Naevus of ITO Hori
  • Naevus and Cafe-au-a-lait-macules
  • Light pulses target melanin at variable depth on or on the skin. Hair Removal (effective for dark, brown, black hair)
  • Tattoo Removal
  • Ony Chomycosis
  • Wrinkles in photo-aged skin
  • Treatment of Active Acne Infections
  • Acne Scars
