I mean it’s common but how do you get rid of mosquitoes easy and fast? Well I have used different
mosquito killers but it’s always either too strong or too useless. I’m so tired of wasting my money on
these insect repellents that do not actually work for me! But good thing there’s a mosquito repellent

          Aside from that, it has a refreshing orange scent, has very low toxicity, and is definitely eco- friendly which means it does not contain a harmful substance called CFC or Chlorofluorocarbon that is harmful and hazardous to human health, pets, plants and the environment. More importantly its quality can level with other international brands as it was developed in an impeccable technology, but amidst all these, it is affordable and budget friendly compared to other brands.

Multi-sectoral network vs lowering of MACR calls for responsive policies to address poverty, child offending

Wednesday, January 25, 2017
As the House of Representatives Committee on Justice hold a closed-door executive session to discuss the legislative move of lowering the minimum age of criminal responsibility of children in conflict with the law, SALINLAHI Alliance for Children’s Concerns led the launching of UNCHAIN Children (Unity of Child Rights Advocates Against Inhumane Treatment and Neglect of Children), a network composed of multi-stakeholders who are against the proposed legislation.
‘Different stakeholders are gathered today to register the analysis and stand that it is indeed the entrenched poverty in the country that gives way to children getting into conflict with the law,’ said Salinlahi spokesperson Kharlo Manano during the network launching in Quezon City earlier today.
‘We believe that the government should not regard juvenile offenders as criminals, they are victims of poverty and state neglect. The profile of CICL is enough to convince us that these poor children have been condemned miserably in a condition where they need to commit crimes in order to survive,’ Manano stressed, referring to DSWD data saying that most CICL belong to low-earning families of six members on the average, has stopped schooling and were charged with property-related crimes.
According to Manano, House Speaker Alvarez and the members of the House Committee on Justice should give weight on the clamor of the public opposing such proposal. “Jailing children, as young as 9 years old, will not address the problem of child offending. Instead, the government should prioritize crafting responsive programs and policies that will address poverty which should include job generation for poor families, genuine land reform for farmers and access to free basic social services such as health and education.”
The launching was attended by representatives of various child rights institutions, women’s advocates, youth organizations, urban poor sector, members of the academe, legislators and faith-based groups, who signified their unity and commitment to oppose the lowering of MACR by signing a manifesto.
Manano added that the objective of the UNCHAIN Children is to unify the call of different stakeholders in opposing the move to lower the MACR and strengthen their initiatives in pushing the government to address the problem of child offending. ‘We believe that the government is primarily responsible in ensuring the welfare of our children, especially those in the margins of our society,’ Manano emphasized.
Aside from holding awareness-raising efforts at the ground level, the network will become active in holding events opposing the proposed legislation including protest actions, lobbying with local government units as well as proposing and recommending programs and policies in order to promote children’s rights and welfare.
Before the network launch, Salinlahi representatives also participated in a protest action of different child rights groups held outside the Batasan Complex to signify their strong opposition against the railroading of the said anti-children and anti-poor legislation.###

Filipinos are on the top of the Asian list for lacking in exercise: Sun Life Asia Health Index

Tuesday, January 24, 2017


This year's Sun Life Financial Asia Health Index shows that the Philippines dominates the list of Asian countries when it comes to not exercising regularly.


Upon probing, the barriers for a healthy living is blamed on lack of time due to work(57%), lacking of personal motivation and being distracted from the complexities of modern living (47%), cost (45%), and lacking of accessible venues to engage in sports and recreation (45%). Thailand and Malaysia tied with Philippines in the list.


Apparently, Generation O still exists today: O representing Overworked, overweight, and overwhelmed individuals who are still struggling with their health goals.

Not surprisingly, Filipinos are optimistic about the state of their health. In fact, the Asia Health Index showed that the Philippines has the highest score of all the markets surveyed with a score of 89. When it comes to status of emotional health, respondents from the Philippines say that it is good or extremely good. The Philippines rank 2nd to the most positive in the region regarding physical health. Filipinos are always known to be very positive all the time.

“With all the things that demand our time and attention, it’s usually our health that suffers because it’s relegated to the least of our priorities. However, this should not be the case,” Sun Life President and CEO Riza Mantaring said. “This is why we at Sun Life have been boosting our suite of wellness products and mounting events that would help Filipinos to pursue their health goals.”

Good news! There is a new generation wellness product launched by Sun Life; SUN Fit and Well offers comprehensive life and health protection from childhood all the way to the golden years. SUN Fit and Well covers our needs from prevention, to diagnosis, to treatment, and all the way to rehabilitation. Other products offer benefits only when an illness strikes. 


For prevention, SUN Fit and Well provides access to their website >>GoWell, Sun Life’s wellness program where members can enjoy special privileges that will help them keep mind and body fit. This includes easy access to health and wellness information, fitness and wellness events, nutrition and health experts, and more.

“Sun Life remains committed to helping Filipinos face a brighter tomorrow by being in the best of health,” Mantaring said. “The results of the Asia Health Index reiterate the need to promote a healthier lifestyle, and Sun Life wants to be the Filipinos’ partner in pursuing this journey.”

The Sun Life Financial Asia Health Index is a periodic study of health trends in Asia that was launched in 2014. The research is based on the findings of an Ipsos survey conducted In August 2016. A sample of just under 4,000 Asians from 25 to 60 years of age and with middle class incomes was interviewed online from Mainland China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. The survey questioned respondents on their attitudes towards healthy and active living, their health concerns for the future and expectations on access to healthcare.
