The Emergency Preparedness Forum aims to empower the most vulnerable groups in the community be more prepared during emergencies 

As a country that is vulnerable to natural calamities due to its geographic  location, SM Cares knows the importance of empowering Filipinos to become better prepared for these unforeseen events, especially senior citizens and PWDs, which is why SM Cares has programs like the Emergency Preparedness Forum which are aimed towards these sectors. As part of its activities in line with National Disaster Resilience Month this July, SM Cares recently held the third leg of the 2024 Emergency Preparedness Forum in the City of Marikina to help senior citizens and persons with disabilities become more prepared for disasters and emergencies.

Rex Orange County announces his new album The Alexander Technique for release on September 6th via RCA Records. The album was produced entirely by Rex himself alongside Teo Halm (Rosalía, SZA, Beyoncé) and Jim Reed, the latter a member of the Rex Orange County touring band since its inception, in addition to James Blake who produced and features on “Look Me In The Eyes.”

To coincide with the announcement, Rex is sharing two new singles with accompanying music videos, “Alexander” and “Guitar Song,” that showcase two distinctly different sides of the album. Album opener “Alexander” arrives with a Nick Walker-directed music video that introduces the inspiration for the album’s title while the video for “Guitar Song” features footage of Rex filmed by Alexandra Waespi at Decoy Studios in England during the album’s creation.

The Alexander Technique is named for a therapeutic practice in which back pain is treated in order to address deeper health problems, and it’s an apt name for Rex’s most raw album to date: what may have begun as a simple exercise in changing the purview of his writing ended up becoming his most confessional, open-hearted album. Stripping back his sound to a skeletal mixture of stream-of-consciousness R&B and indie-folk, while retaining the orchestral lushness that’s become his trademark, The Alexander Technique marks the beginning of Act Two of Rex Orange County’s career: a new chapter on which he lays everything bare, no matter how painful that might be.

The Alexander Technique is very much a look into my own brain and experiences over the last few years – it’s almost a diary,” he says. Longer than any project he’s ever made and more musically varied, The Alexander Technique was made over a matter of years, started before and finished after 2022’s WHO CARES?; listening to it feels like watching an artist grow in real-time, and face all the attending growing pains that come alongside. “I’ve made a lot of love songs over the years, and I feel as though this is the first time I’m trying to make a project about everything in life. In my mind, it’s exactly what I’ve always wanted to make.”

Listen to and watch “Alexander” and “Guitar Song” above now and see below for all The Alexander Technique information.

The P-Pop solo act stars in the music video, along with Nicole Omillio of One More Chance stage adaptation and RJ Cruz of The Juans

 

 

Justin delivers another track with an unfiltered creative pulse.

The promising P-Pop star releases “kaibigan,” an anthemic track that finds the sweet spot most solo artists only dream of: staying true to their roots while harnessing their fully realized potential.

The song channels the agony and frustration of expressing one’s true feelings to a friend—a familiar premise that ends with an intriguing twist to its own brand of storytelling.

To be honest, there’s no actual or specific inspiration behind the song,” Justin reveals. “I wrote this tune from the perspective of an observer and wanderer: a person who enjoys movies with coming-of-age slant.”

Radkidz collab

Layered with sonic complexities and refreshing builds, “kaibigan” simply defies expectations by giving Justin more room to experiment. Credit goes to Filipino production duo Radkidz (SB19’s Pablo and his brother, Josue), who reconciled Justin’s pop sensibilities with their envelope-pushing ideas. Both Pablo and Josue worked with Justin on his previously released solo tracks, “surreal” and “sunday morning.”

Similar to surreal, I let them hear my demo in its ukulele version,” Justin shares the production process behind his new track. “At first, it was more of a solemn and calm song, but as we navigated deeper through the collaboration and explored the material and its story, we came up with something that ripped out the emotional layers in the latter part.”

The charismatic member of SB19 specifically praised Radkidz for guiding him towards honing his sonic instincts while sticking to the brief.

They added some interesting builds on the bridge, and made me even scream towards the end. I personally don’t see myself doing that, but there’s always total payoff in accepting the challenge without giving in to your sense of inhibition. I’m actually thrilled with the final output.”

About the music video

 



 

SB19’s Justin himself conceptualized the visual narrative that accompanies the track’s releaseWhile he is responsible for the flow, the talented multi-hyphenate doesn’t want to take all the credit for the MV, as he takes pride in the collaborative nature of filmmaking. He shares captainship with his team, particularly in coming up with the storyboard and the shot list.

For the direction of the MV, other than the rough storyboard, we make sure the producer knows the story behind it and what feeling we want to convey. I even sent movies and not just music video pegs for them to really understand what we wanted to achieve,” the 1Z Entertainment act adds.

 

The music video for “kaibigan” stars theater actress Nicole Omillio, who recently made headlines as Basha on the stage adaptation of the hit movie One More Chance, and RJ Cruz of alternative pop band The Juans.

The concept of the MV captures the complexities of human connection. As the team puts it, the newest single from justin is a reminder that some things are better left unsaid: “kaibigan is an embrace for the unrequited.”

Justin admits, “To be honest, the music video is very easy to digest. And that’s what I want: for people to relate to it and feel the story of the music and the music video.”

Justin’s “kaibigan” is out now on all digital music platforms worldwide via Sony Music Entertainment. Watch the music video here.

Baguio20Tree Planting

 PLOGGING, PLANTING FOR PARK LOVE. Foundever™ associates in Baguio City jogged, picked up litter, and planted trees in two of the city’s beloved public parks—Burnham and Rizal Parks. The tasks were part of their “missions” during the company-sponsored “Amazing Race”-like event over four days. The park jogging-and-cleanup activity was done in cooperation with the Baguio City LGU as part of the city government-private sector program, “Adopt-a-Park”. Foundever, a global leader in the customer experience (CX) industry, held the event to create a trifecta of fun, fitness, and environment advocacy for its employees.

MANILA – Baguio associates of Foundever, a global leader in the customer experience (CX) industry, combined fun, fitness, and environment advocacy through a plogging and tree-planting activity at Burnham and Rizal Public Parks. The event was a trifecta that enhanced the associates’ camaraderie, and physical and mental health, while also benefiting the city’s parks. 

Plogging” is an exercise trend that combines running/jogging with picking up litter along the streets. The trend began in Sweden back in 2016 and the name combines the Swedish verbs “plocka upp” (meaning, “to pick up”) and “jogga” (meaning, “to jog”). Since then, the trend has spread worldwide as runners/joggers do their part in keeping city streets cleaner while also helping protect the environment. 

The event was organized in partnership with the Baguio City government as part of the city’s ‘Adopt-a-Park Program’ that brings together efforts of the LGU and private companies to care for and maintain public parks,” said Site Director Vida Haboc.

The Foundever in Baguio associates who participated in the event also planted 60 trees. These tasks were part of a four-day “amazing race-inspired” program that challenged the participants in a friendly, bonding competition that tested their skills for quick thinking, strategy, and teamwork. The plogging and tree-planting activities were part of the participants’ missions.

Aside from Vida Haboc, other Foundever leaders present at the event were Senior Operations Manager KC Pulido, Operations Manager Bryan Corpuz, and Workforce Experience Manager Mark Caniedo.

GCash CICC20GCash20nagbabala20ukol20sa20mga20fake20messages photo

 

Nagbabala sa publiko ang nangungunang finance super app na GCash, kaisa ng Cybercrime Investigation and Coordinating Center (CICC), ukol sa nagkalat na pekeng social media channels na nagpapanggap na GCash. Kaugnay sa mga fake social media page o group na ito ay mga followers na magkakalat ng mga phishing links na magiging sanhi ng account takeover o pagnanakaw sa kanilang mga account.

Kadalasang gambling o gaming ang mga fraudulent accounts na ito at may mga pangalang tulad ng “GCash88 Media”, “GCash Update”, at kung anu-ano pang mga mapanlinlang na pangalan.

We always advise the public to avoid clicking any links from unknown or suspicious senders.” (“Lagi naming pinapayuhan ang publiko na iwasang mag-click sa anumang link mula sa hindi kilala o kahina-hinalang mga nagpadala ng mensahe online,”) pahayag ni CICC executive Director Alexander K. Ramos. “Scammers used to send such links through SMS, but now they have found another platform.” (“Dati ang mga scammer ay nagpapadala ng mga link sa pamamagitan ng SMS, ngunit ngayon ay nakahanap na sila ng ibang platform,”) dagdag niya.

Nagpahayag din ng patuloy na suporta si Ramos para sa kaligtasan ng digital ecosystem sa bansa. “Our combined resources with our fellow law enforcement agencies have already traced many suspects behind these social media pages and arrested them in law enforcement operations. Let this be a stern warning to other cybercriminals out there, you will be pursued, you will be found, and you will be apprehended.” (Ang aming pinasagsamang pwersa kasama ang iba pang law enforcement agencies ang naging daan para matukoy at matunton ang mga suspek sa likod ng mga social media pages na ito. Magsilbi sana itong babala sa mga nagkalat na cybercriminals, kayo ay matutukoy at mahahanap, at kayo ay mahuhuli ng mga awtoridad,”) aniya.

Samantala, muling nagpaalala si GCash Vice President and Head of Corporate Communications Gilda Maquilan na iisa lamang ang social media page ng e-wallet.  “GCash’s official pages are @gcashofficial, which is where we come out with our promos, and @wearegcash, the official corporate page of GCash, nothing else.” We believe that social media platforms are still the best means to engage our users. However, we strongly warn our users that any other profile or username is fraudulent and should be avoided.”(“Ang mga official Facebook page ng GCash ay ang @gcashofficial, kung saan kami naglalabas ng mga promo at ang  @wearegcash, na siyang official corporate page ng GCash,  wala nang iba pa. Naniniwala pa rin ang GCash na ang social media ay mananatiling pinaka epektibong paraan para makipag ugnayan sa aming mga users. Binabalaan po namin ang mga users na iwasan ang mga naiibang social media profiles at usernames na nagpapanggap na GCash,”) pahayag ni Maquilan.

Upang higit pang maprotektahan ang mga user laban sa mga online scam, patuloy ding nakikipagtulungan ang GCash sa mga awtoridad kabilang ang National Bureau of Investigation (NBI), Philippine National Police-Anti Cybercrime Group (PNP-ACG). Bilang resulta, nasa mahigit apat na milyon mga fraudulent ang naipasara nito, habang nasa 810 phishing sites at 45,000 malisyosong mga post at account sa social media naman ang na-block ng awtoridad noong 2023 sa tulong ng GCash.

“We will continue to work closely with our partners from law enforcement agencies, including the PNP, NBI, CICC, and others, in tracking down scammers behind these deceptive online channels and ensuring they are pursued by the authorities.” (“Kami ay patuloy na makikipagtulungan sa aming mga partners mula sa gobyerno kabilang ang PNP, NBI, CICC, at iba pa, sa pagsubaybay sa mga scammers sa likod ng mga mapanlinlang na online channels at pagtiyak na sila ay matutugis ng mga awtoridad,”) dagdag ni Maquilan.

Muling nagpaalala ang GCash sa mga users na huwag kailanman ibahagi ang MPIN o OTP kaninuman at iwasang mag click sa mga hindi kilalang websites, emails, at messaging apps.

Para sa tulong, maaaring makipag-ugnayan sa PNP-ACG sa kanilang hotlines sa (02) 8414-1560 at sa 0998-598-8116, o sa email na acg@pnp.gov.ph.

Para isumbong ang mga scams at iba pang ilegal na gawain, maaaring ring bisitahin ng mga users ang official GCash Help Center sa help.gcash.com, o mag message kay Gigi, at i-type ang “I want to report a scam.” Pwede ring tumawag sa GCash hotline na 2882 para sa anumang katanungan at concerns.

LMP20key20visual




Linggo Ng Musikang Pilipino (LMP) marks its highly anticipated celebration this year with a series of music events that aim to foster deeper awareness and appreciation for Pinoy music.

The week-long festivity, which takes place in various music venues and stages across Metro Manila from July 5 to 31, continues its commitment to promoting established and new homegrown music acts whose work has provided inspiration to the Filipino people or contributed to the advancement of the local economy and the arts.

LMP20photo203

What makes LMP 2024 different from the previous celebrations is that it has a more ‘back-to-basics’ vibe and ‘keeping-it-simple’ feel,” Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM) Board member and Vice President for Special Projects Christian Bautista explains. “The focus and emphasis are really on listening to and appreciating different artists sharing their music and their stories in intimate settings. Our LMP this year is not really focused on the spectacle but rather more on highlighting the artist and the song.”

This year’s LMP chronicles a decade of celebrating Linggo ng Musikang Pilipino in accordance with Proclamation No. 933, signed by late President Benigno Aquino III on December 19, 2014.

Returning on its tenth year with the goal of reintroducing its mandate to highlight Filipino singer and to showcase the richness and diversity of Filipino music, Linggo Ng Musikang Pilipino aims to be more proactive in supporting Pinoy artists and ensuring that they are given a platform to present their work and their story to a global modern audience.

The commemoration of LMP is slated to take place in several areas with multiple dates and will feature more than 30 artists from OPM’s roster and network of artists.

OPM Spotlight: LMP Nightwhich has championed some of the biggest and brightest local artists in recent years, will host performances and shows for the rest of the month at Kubo Bar in Kalayaan, Quezon City. Some of the headliners include Johnoy DanaoSugarcanejikamarieColor It Red,, Mint Magic and many more from the OPM slate.

Other remote celebrations include OPM Spotlight: Rockwell LMP Series on July 24, 25, 26, and 28 at the Power Plant Mall in Makati City, and LMP24: PhilPop Night on July 31, 2024 at Kubo Bar. The latter puts a spotlight on select winners and participants from the prestigious annual songwriting competition, including Noah Alejandre, PhilPop 2020 Grand Champion; Davey Langit, PhilPop 2015 Top 3 Finalist and PhilPop 2013 Finalist; Kulas Basilonia, PhilPop 2020 Finalist; Hazel Faith, PhilPop North Luzon Boot Camp 2019 Fellow; and dwta, PhilPop 2021 DigiCamp Fellow. Ayala Land and Make It Makati will also be having a series of acoustic shows in partnership with OPM along with other activities related to the Linggo ng Musikang Pilipino celebration from July 21 to 28.

Expect beautiful music and heartfelt performances from the artists,” Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM) President Ogie Alcasid shares. “We hope that through this humble series of shows that we’re doing, the Filipino audience will continue to love and support Filipino artists and Filipino music even after LMP.”

LMP20photo201

OPM Officer in Charge Gab Cabangon emphasizes that the goal of this year’s LMP has never changed. “It’s always been about the celebration and promotion of Filipino artists and Filipino music. That has always been our advocacy, to which we are fully committed as an organization. I guess what we could add to that is that this LMP celebration is also OPM’s way to reintroduce itself to the general public and grow its community.”

The Linggo Ng Musikang Pilipino was established under Proclamation No. 933, signed in 2014, with the initiative to celebrate Filipino music during the last week of July every year.

Here’s the schedule this year:
