Do You Fall Into #MalnutritionTraps?



The country has been facing a rise in the number of underweight and overweight Filipinos for more than 20 years. The World Health Organization (WHO) defined this phenomenon as the “Double Burden of Malnutrition” or the “prevalence of both undernutrition and overweight in the same community, nation, or region.”

To address this problem, our government launched the Pinggang Pinoy® campaign in 2014. Pinggang Pinoy® is an easy-to-understand food guide showing proper food group portioning on a per-meal basis. This reflects the principles of MOderation, VAriety, and BAlance (MOVABA) to promote healthier eating habits.

Solving the Philippines’ Double Burden of Malnutrition should be a collaborative effort between the public and private sectors as it is not an easy feat. With this, Ajinomoto Philippines Corporation partnered with government agencies to conduct education programs to raise awareness and promote the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® in malnutrition hotspots, where incidences of Double Burden Malnutrition are high. This training was given to homemakers/mothers who have malnourished (underweight, stunting, wasting, overweight and obese) school-aged children.

The pilot run resulted in improvements in the knowledge & attitudes of households related to the practice of Pinggang Pinoy® within target areas. However, behavior changes towards healthier eating habits remain to be a challenge. The program uncovered a number #MalnutritionTraps that some Pinoy households easily fall into. The following #MalnutritionTraps provide a picture of how unhealthy eating habits may lead to Double Burden of Malnutrition:

1. Overconsumption of carbohydrates: Voracious rice eaters can easily fill half of their plates with rice. Others have pandesal & noodles as regular meal deprived of other nutrients derived from a well-balanced meal.

2. Underconsumption of vegetables and/fruits: It is common for some to be content with rice & meat to satisfy their hunger and skip/take an insufficient amount of vegetables/fruits. Fact is, the variety of colors found in Glow foods are important sources of vitamins & minerals to sustain our energy & keep us from getting sick.

3. Overconsumption of protein: Typical Filipino “SILOG” meals include a double serving of proteins (e.g. Tapa+Itlog, Tocino+Itlog, Longanisa+Itlog, Bangus+Itlog). Eating different kinds of protein is fine for as long as they are taken in moderation. We must also avoid protein dishes served high in fat, cholesterol, and sodium.

More stories about #MalnutritionTraps can be referenced from these documentary videos:


“Puro Carbs”

“Breakfast Skipper”

“Kulang sa Protina”

“Pamilya Unlirice"

To help Filipinos break free from #MalnutritionTraps, Ajinomoto’s Culinary Nutrition Team prepared Healthy & Delicious Pinggang Pinoy® Recipes, downloadable through https://bit.ly/2HIsfkj. Busy and budget-restricted homemakers will also find these Pinggang Pinoy® recipes useful because all are easy-to-do and affordable (P250/day for a family of 5).

10 Reasons Why We Should Allow Children To Fail

https://www.facebook.com/TheTeacherTrainers/

This illustration popped in my Facebook newsfeed and it was from The Teachers Trainer page. Having a teenager who is very active in school, academically and even in extra-curricular activities. She has been a consistent honor student since she was in kindergarten. As a working Mom, my time to assist her with school works and other school-related stuff are sometimes limited. Encouragement and being there with her as much as I can are my keys to show her and let her feel that I support her. Now that she's in Grade 8, ranked first in the last grading period and also got the academic awards in some of her subjects, I saw how she became eager and pressured to retain her ranking. I heard her one time uttering the words "I need to do more so I can retain my grades and ranking, I am pressured, Mom!" I told not to be and also it is a normal feeling to be pressured but she can do better, just remain focus and never be complacent. The only worry she needs to handle is her self. I guess this is the failure side of what she is experiencing right now. The fear of failing and losing the academic rank she has right now. 

Failure is a big part of a human being existence, I don't know anyone who never experiences failure in life. The degree of failure depends on the current situation of the person. 

Failure in life, work, business, relationship, friendship and a lot more to categorize with. Through this failure, lessons can be learned. This lessons can hone you on what kind of person you will become in the years to come. Failure can start as early as when you were born. Should we allow ourselves to experience failure? Should we let failure sets in and embrace it? From the image above, what are the 10 reasons why we should allow children to fail?

  1. Failure helps children to learn from mistakes and improve for next time.
  2. Failure helps build character and helps us to be more courageous.
  3. Failure is an important learning experience for children to go through.
  4. Failure promotes problem-solving skills.
  5. Failure teaches children how to be more resilient.
  6. Failure can help children to develop competence and autonomy in the future. 
  7. Failure encourages improvement and critical thinking skills.
  8. Failure encourages children to develop coping skills.
  9. Failure teaches the children the importance of hard work and perseverance.
  10. It helps children to push themselves out of their comfort zone.

As a parent, how do you cope with your children when dealing with failure in any aspect of their lives? 

Do you agree on what and how failure can be embraced with open arms?

Press Release: “M. BUTTERFLY” NATIONAL TOUR 2019 ALL SET FOR SIX- CITY RUN FROM FEBRUARY TO JUNE

PRESS RELEASE
The M. BUTTERFLY National Tour 2019 is all set to spread its wings even wider to reach major cities namely Iloilo, Dumaguete, Cebu, Davao, Manila, and Baguio.
Presented by Tony and Grammy award-winning producer Jhett Tolentino and FRONTROW Entertainment (producer of highly-acclaimed independent films Bhoy Intsik and Bwaya), the M. BUTTERFLY National Tour 2019 was decided upon by the producers to bring this world-class masterpiece to those who did not have the opportunity to catch its 2018 Manila run. After all, the location should not limit one’s exposure to the arts and culture.
Most theater companies in our country whose successful productions in Manila are often hindered from bringing their projects to other key cities because of the many challenges and technical details involved. And this is why Jhett Tolentino and FRONTROW Entertainment are taking this bolder step to carry on their mission and advocacy in the performing arts and to further enhance audience development throughout the Philippine archipelago.
This revival production of David Henry Hwang’s M. BUTTERFLY is the winner of the 2018 ALIW AWARDS for Best Play, Best Actor and Best Director. It was also nominated for two Best Featured Actresses in a Play and Best Ensemble.
M. Butterfly, which tells the story originally premiered on Broadway in 1998 and won 3 Tony Awards for Best Play, Best Featured Actor and Best Director.
Synopsis: René Gallimard is a member of the French embassy in China. René is mild-mannered and considers himself to be poor with women. He meets and falls in love with Chinese opera star Song Liling, a woman whom he considers to be the embodiment of the perfect woman, Madame Butterfly. But when West meets East, everything is not what it seems….
Targeting audiences between ages 18 and beyond, the producers are hoping that this classic drama, inspired by Giaccomo Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly’, will likewise resonate to theater audiences from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao that “ love, power, and deception holds no boundaries – whether this be in a rural or urban setting.”
RS FRANCISCO, the 2018 Aliw Awards Best Actor for M. Butterfly shall reprise his iconic portrayal of Song Liling, the Chinese opera singer who is Gallimard’s object of affection and seduces him through his biases of the East then exploits their intimacy to collect classified information for agents of the Chinese Communist Party.
RS first essayed this role in May 1990 for Dulaang UP, opposite veteran actor, writer, and critic Behn Cervantes. On its debut, M. Butterfly immediately rose to critical acclaim with packed houses and box office success in over 100 performances throughout the Philippines.
In the many years thereafter, RS Francisco’s theater credits in numerous productions and variety of roles continued to hone his craft as a complete artist. In films, his most recent awards include the SINAG MAYNILA Best Actor, the STAR AWARDS Movie Actor of the Year and the SUBIC BAY INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL Best Actor.
When M. BUTTERFLY was revived recently on Broadway, RS had thought of bringing it to life once again to the new theater audiences of today. After all, this is the only ‘one’ role that continues to remain as closest to his heart.
To add a diverse twist to the M. Butterfly National Tour 2019, young actor AIRA IGARTA will step into the role of Song Liling as alternate in certain performances. As an original member of the Kurogo ensemble of the play’s 2018 Manila run, Aira is a stage and film actor from the Theatre Arts Program of UP Diliman where he took part in several Dulaang UP and Dulaang Labortoryo productions. Trained by the likes of Tony Fabella and Luther Perez, Aira was originally a dance and voice scholar at Quezon City Performing Arts Foundation (QCPADFI).
French actor OLIVIER BORTEN shall essay the role of Rene Gallimard, a former French diplomat, who relates the story of his passionate, disastrous affair with Song Liling from his cell in a Paris prison, where he is serving a long sentence for treason.
Philippine theater royalty JENINE DESIDERIO, who among many other theater, film, television and recording credits, assumed the lead role as Kim in the West End’s original Miss Saigon, will portray Gallimard’s wife – Helga. The pair married as a matter of convenience; Helga’s father had diplomatic connections that helped Gallimard ascend in his career.
After 25 years of stage acting experience in the United Kingdom, Scottish NORM MCLEOD has stepped in the Philippine stage as Manuel Toulon, the French Ambassador to China who also happens to be the dominant and strong-willed superior of Gallimard at the embassy in Beijing. Toulon promotes Gallimard to vice-consul and charges him with collecting information to aid the American war in Vietnam.
Trilingual American actor LEE O’BRIAN will once more personify Marc, the sexually unapologetic best friend of Gallimard. He encourages Gallimard to take sexual advantage of the women around him without regard for their feelings or even their consent. Although M. Butterfly was Lee’s first theatrical endeavor, his acting skills have already been tried and tested in international films Edsa Woolworth and Forgive Me Father. O’Brian also portrays Sharpless in M. Butterfly for a brief while.
Portraying the different roles of Suzuki, Comrade Chin, and Shu Fang is powerful and well-rounded artist MAYEN ESTAÑERO. Her impressive performance in the 2018 run of M. Butterfly landed her an Aliw Awards nomination for Best Featured Actress. Mayen’s previous theater credits include Dalanghita Production’s Corazon Negro, An Operetta as Maestra, Virgin Labfest’s Mula sa Kulimliman as Leila and Sugid Production’s Buwan at Baril as Asawa. Comrade Chin is a member of the Red Guards, a paramilitary arm of the Communist Party in China. Song communicates with Comrade Chin often, to pass on the classified information he gathers from Gallimard.
Twice a finalist as Best Actress for the Aliw Awards, MAYA ENCILA receives her third nomination as Best Featured Actress for her unique characterization of Renee and Pin-Up Girl in M. Butterfly. The stunning Arizona native plays a young, sexually liberated Danish woman with whom Gallimard has an affair. Renee’s boldness presents a stark contrast to Song’s modesty, which Gallimard finds both exciting and obnoxious. A true expert in performing arts, Maya has taken the stage countless times as Mary Lennox for The Secret Garden, as Belle for Repertory Philippines’ Beauty and the Beast musical and as Lara for Philippine Stagers’ KATIPS, to name a few.
Rising soprano star JASMIN SALVO will be the new Opera Singer for the national tour.
The members of the ensemble playing the role of Kurogo are as follows: PHEITH IENA BALLUG, ULLYSES BASA, SASA CABALQUINTO, FRANCO FERRER and JOHN PAUL ORTENERO.
The artistic team of M. Butterfly is as follows: Jhett Tolentino and RS Francisco (Producers), Ohm David (Set), Eric Pineda (Costume), John Batalla (Lighting), Jethro Joaquin (Sound), Joed Balsamo (Music) and Carissa Adea (Choreography).
The M. BUTTERFLY NATIONAL TOUR 2019 will benefit 10 charitable institutions namely: Iloilo Prima Galaw, Philippine National Red Cross Iloilo Chapter, The Children of Cebu Foundation, Silliman University Culture and Arts Council, the Arts Council of Cebu Foundation, Love the Children Foundation, House of Hope Foundation, Halfway Home for the Boys and St. Louis University Culture and Arts Center.

How will technology impact the future of medicine




Press Release
***image from Quartzclinical.com

Technology and medicine consequently come along the way when it comes to changes and updates. With this clinical studies can be done using a specific type of technology for better, easier, and faster results leaving minimal room for errors. The progress of determining and elevating on how a patient can be treated can be monitored with less human intervention- to more precise analysis, compared to earlier times when a manual technique is applied just to attain certain medical result to use for future reference. The kind of manual medical technique can never be set aside because it was the foundation and guide for the current scenario in hospital, clinical, and a wider setting as laboratory facilities. 

In a hospital-based setting where medical staff is scheduled to monitor patients from their medication and any medical intervention needed, this is the so-called traditional way of attending to patient's needs except hospital interventions when physical management is required. Today, providing health can be done using any medical technology which is hooked and connected online. From prescribed medicine, updating of scheduled surgery, follow-up appointments, availability of the physicians and other medical interventions needed by a patient. 

Due to the evolvement of technology, machine learning can be additional medical techniques that can be used in this present time. This is somehow considered artificial intelligence using information through data gathering of a certain patient to a specific mode of medical action. 

A company such as Quartzclinical is an online platform that provides technology-based, safe, cost-effective, healthcare to patients, as they claimed.

Can we welcome such modifications and improvements? I believe so, it can gather a massive amount of information in a given time which means the future of technology in the field of medicine.
