AmiananPop Champions North Luzon Pop Music with First Edition of its Songwriting Festival

 

The movement aims to secure regional music’s place in the contemporary music canon

In an effort to foster a better understanding of the North Luzon culture and identity through contemporary music, AmiananPop Music Inc. is officially launching the maiden edition of its songwriting festival, which will take place online this December 4, 2021.

Taking a page from fellow contemporaries, Visayan Pop Music Festival (Vispop) and Mindanao Popular Music Festival (MinPop), the newly formed institution puts a spotlight on a new breed of composers, interpreters, musicians, and producers representing the Ilocos, Cordillera, and Cagayan region, as well as some non-Tagalog speaking areas in Central Luzon. 

Through AmiananPop Songwriting Festival 2021, artists from the North are encouraged to write, record, and produce songs in their own language as a way to present one’s individuality and debunk misconceptions about non-Manileño Filipino cultures. “Every language and/or dialect is unique, and so are the stories and nuances that come with it, and that is why this is the ultimate goal of the movement, to create a community of storytellers that will represent the NOW generation of Northern singer/songwriters,” says AmiananPop Co-Founder and Chairman Davey Langit.


The annual competition is committed to bringing modern regional pop music at the forefront of mainstream consciousness by making sure that the songs are well-produced and could compete on a global level. As Ebe Dancel, Co-Founder and President of AmiananPop sums it up, “All the finalists have excellently-written and arranged songs, and the melodies are great. How do we bridge the gap? We make sure that the songs are well-produced, so that when people not familiar with the language hear them, they will be encouraged to look for the translation of all songs.”

Going all out on its debut edition, AmiananPop aims to secure its place on the Philippine music map with its insistence to subvert old practices and embrace new forms of music-making that is at par with the professional level in highly urbanized areas such as Metro Manila. Using the tagline Sikamimet!, which is an Ilocano word for ‘it’s our turn,” the regional songwriting event is keen on igniting a new music movement from North Luzon that turns the resounding battle cry into a marker of an evolving and dynamically growing scene.



“We have to bring it to the fore and show the people that we have an evolving culture, particularly, in music,” Co-Founder and Board Member Noel Cabangon explains the basis behind AmiananPop’s vision. “The songs that we know are already traditional songs. What about the stories and song of the new generation? That’s how important cultural evolution is. Dapat kasabay ng pag-evolve ng panahon ang kultura.”

This year’s finalists have shown promise in making generation-defining anthems that not only assert cultural identity in a compelling way, but also reflect the social conditions of their immediate environment and the community that shaped their individuality. The North Luzon artists that impressed the adjudicators in the preliminary rounds include:

  1. Angelic Mateo, SUNGBAT
  2. Harold Lumandaz, URAYEN KA
  3. Jomabel Trapse, BISIKLETA
  4. Fernan Castro Estrada (Composer) & Melchor Orpilla (Lyricicst), LAINËNG ONAN ARO
  5. Ryan Madrid (Composer) & Kimberly Collado (Lyricist), PUDNO NGA AYAT
  6. Ruth Lee Resuello, AGKA MAPAGA
  7. Ruth Lee Resuello, ANTO KASI NGARAN TU MAN
  8. Rivah-Anne Singson & Remedios Singson, NAPACURUG NGA AYA
  9. Red Gumayagay, ARAPAAP
  10. Patrick Visto, LAB STORY

The selection went through rigorous process of adjudication led by Chairman Davey Langit, President Ebe Dancel, as well as Foundation Board Members Maestro Ryan Cayabyab, Noel Cabangon, Gary Granada, Ma. Cristina Joy Balajadia, Melvin Morallos, Christopher Donaal, and Agat Morallos.

According to Co-Founder Noel Cabangon, the finalists are selected based on musicality, lyrics, creativity and new sound. “We determine entries not on their winnability but how the songs are creatively crafted,” the award-winning and critically acclaimed singer-songwriter adds.

AmiananPop Songwriting Festival 2021 is the first project of AmiananPop Music Inc., a non-stock, non-profit organization that aims to champion the beauty and diversity of contemporary pop music in North Luzon and its peripheral regions. This year’s festival is co-presented by official partners and sponsors: PhilPop, FILSCAP, NLEX-SCREX, PotenCee, Office of Senator Risa Hontiveros, Office of Cong. Kristine Singson, Office of Cong. Christopher de Venecia, Mansho, and Island Living.

Shift in Mindset: Working Filipinos Today Less Anxious Compared to Start of Pandemic



A year and a half into the COVID-19 pandemic and months into the rollout of the vaccines to counter the diseases, more working Filipinos have become less anxious of going out to attend to their necessities. 

 

Respondents of the 2021 PhilCare Wellness Index: The Philippine Roadmap to the Next Normal say they are more comfortable to go to the hospital now compared to the start of the pandemic, with a mean score of 3.05 (“neither”) from a score of 3.93 (“disagree”) in the 2020 PhilCare CQ Wellness Index

 

For this year’s study, a total of 1,500 respondents nationwide were asked to rate themselves from a five-point scale. With regard to degrees of agreement, scores ranging from 1-1.80 represented “strongly agree,” 1.81-2.60 as “agree,” 2.61-3.40 as “neither,” 3.41-4.20 as “disagree,” and 4.21-5 as “strongly disagree.” Meanwhile, a total of 505 working Filipinos were interviewed for the 2020 PhilCare CQ Wellness Index.

 

Interestingly, workers have also become more comfortable in going to the supermarket, with the score jumping from 2.85 (“neither”) to 2.46 (“agree”). 

While working Filipinos still “strongly agree” about washing hands properly, with a score of 1.43, this significantly lower than the 1.15 score for the same behavior last year. The same goes for disinfecting items bought outside before bringing them into the house, which also declined from 1.49 to 1.67. 

 

“With the study, we get a better picture of how Filipino workers have adjusted after more than a year into the pandemic and how going through the new normal affects their health and wellness,” said Dr. Fernando Paragas, lead researcher of the 2021 PhilCare Wellness Index and a professor at the College of Mass Communication at the University of the Philippines-Diliman.

 

The Philippine Roadmap To The Next Normal is the fourth PhilCare Wellness Index national survey since it was first done in 2014. This year’s study was conducted via a nationwide telephone survey from September 4-20, 2021.

 

“We found it very important to conduct this very relevant study at a time when people are raring to return to their workplaces while conducting them in a safe manner since the virus. At the end of the day, we want to help the economy and our fellow Filipinos move past our current situation into a healthier and safer next normal,” said Dr. Enrique Ona, Chairman of the 2021 PhilCare Wellness Index and former Health Secretary.

 

PhilCare President and CEO Jaeger L. Tanco said the study was undertaken to determine the state of health and wellness of employed Filipino workers who are at the center of concerted efforts to reopen the economy and reinvigorate business and industry. 

“People obviously play a very key role in the effort of businesses - and the country in general - to recover from the effects of the pandemic. This study was developed and implemented with the goal of finding out how prepared employees are as they navigate the transition between the COVID-19 new normal and the prospective next normal,” he said. 

“Understanding the employees gives a very clear guide on how we can all get back on our feet,” he added.  

The respondents were randomly selected from Metro Manila and over 60 provinces across the country, who are currently employed mostly in the services sector (81.9%), followed by those in the industrial (16%) and agricultural sectors (2.1%).

 


Demographic representation

 

Services and sales workers comprised the biggest group of respondents (45.9%), followed by technicians and associate professionals (15.8%), and professionals (14.7%).

Almost two-thirds of respondents (64.5%) worked for the private sector, while another 10.4% worked for the government. The rest worked as either employer in their own family-operated farm or business (7.9%), were self-employed without any paid employee (7.5%), worked for a private household (6.6%), worked with pay in their own family-operated farm or business (2.1%), or worked with pay in the same business set-up (1%).


COVID-19 and vaccination

Surprisingly, only 7.6% of respondents said they do not want to be vaccinated. 

In addition, half (49.1%) have not been vaccinated, with 34.7% expressing willingness to get a shot and 14.4% having a vaccination schedule already at the time the survey was done.

A quarter of respondents (26.2%) have been fully-vaccinated, while one in five (17.1%) have gotten their first of two shots.

Four out of five respondents (82%) are confident with the COVID-19 vaccinations, having a composite score of 1.93 (“agree”). They trust the vaccines’ efficacy (1.83) and safety (1.85). Filipino workers also trust the health services that administer the vaccines (1.92), that the vaccines can end the pandemic (1.92), and the policymakers that decide on the vaccination program’s rollout (2.13).

Many Filipino workers also “strongly agree” about their right to get vaccinated (1.66), that COVID-19 is a serious risk to their health (1.69), seeking information on the vaccines (1.75), and that getting vaccinated is a way to protect others against the disease (1.77).

Almost half (46.6%) of respondents said they personally knew someone who had COVID-19. In addition, over a third (36.6%) said they personally knew of someone who died from the disease.


Healthcare as among most valued in workplace

 

Compared to pre-pandemic days, Filipino workers now see healthcare as among the top three things they value in their workplace, alongside good salary and financial stability of the company. 

 

Having a healthcare program in the office ranks third with a score of 1.46, with salary as first (1.43) and financial stability of the employer (1.45). Healthcare even ranks higher than the usual worker values, such as appreciation among peers, 
good relationships with colleagues, work-home balance, having a good boss, career growth, and skills training.

 

With regard to change in importance, scores ranging from 1-1.80 represented “much more important,” 1.81-2.60 as “more important,” 2.61-3.40 as “the same,” 3.41-4.20 as “less important,” and 4.21-5 as “much less important.”

 

In terms of percentages, around six out of ten respondents (56.9%) say that having a healthcare program in the office is “much more important” now than before the pandemic. This ranks fourth compared to those who said the same for salary (62%), financial stability of their employer (58.1%), and appreciation for their work (57.4%).

 

“The pandemic brought us to our senses in many ways, but in the end, it’s all about going back to basics -- taking care of the human person’s basic needs, including health. This is why I believe that employers should view spending for healthcare as an investment rather than an expense. After all, having good health is a basic right,” said Dr. Ona. 

 

“As for workers, they should understand that achieving good health in the workplace is a partnership with their respective employers. It is, in fact, a personal responsibility, which means they still must practice proper nutrition, exercise, and avoid vices as much as possible,” he added.

 


Health and wellness

Overall, even with the threat of COVID-19,  respondents said they perceive their overall state of health and wellness during the pandemic was “very good” with a score of 1.57 (score of one, being the highest), which was surprising because in 2019, prior to the pandemic, respondents rated their wellness as “good” with a score of 1.82. 

Among the factors of wellness that saw biggest jumps in score are sense of satisfaction (“All things considered, I am satisfied with my life”) which rose from a score of 3.56 in 2019 to 1.76; self-rated health (“Overall I am in good health”) from 3.07 to 1.55, and sense of respect (“People respect me”) from 2.76 to 1.52. 


Work set-up

Half (49.9%) of all respondents said they worked entirely in their respective work sites, while two-fifths (36.2%) work both at home and on-site. The rest (13.9%) work entirely at home.

But given a choice of their preferred work arrangements, roughly half (48.7%) are willing to take on the hybrid work set-up in the next six months. Around a third (35%) would continue going to their respective places of work, while the rest (16.3%) would work entirely in their homes.

Respondents agreed that their workplace was adapting well to the pandemic, especially in the following terms: having a clear strategy to respond to the economic impact of the pandemic (87.2%); having a good system in place to ensure their safety as employees during the pandemic (86.7%); and having a program for promoting their health and wellness as employees (85.3%).

 

However, despite the high marks given for the pandemic preparedness in the workplace, respondents “strongly agree” they are stressed at the thought of being exposed to COVID-19 (1.73) and taking care of personal and family needs while working (1.78).


Takeaway for businesses

"For this year’s study, we wanted to bring attention to our workers and their health and well-being. Our employees are the lifeblood of our companies, which power the economy. Simply said, taking care of our workforce is also taking care of our economy,” said PhilCare Chairman Monico V. Jacob.

 

“In our desire to become a more responsible HMO amid this continuing health crisis, we intend to launch new programs and services that would enable employers to address the needs of their employees to keep their enterprises going. In fact, we have already launched services catering to mental health concerns since many of these came out during the pandemic,” Tanco said.

 

###

 

PhilhealthCare, Inc. (PhilCare) is among the top two most preferred HMOs in the country today. It distinguishes itself from other health maintenance organizations (HMO) in the Philippines by advocating wellness as a more holistic approach to health.

 

This is achieved through PhilCare’s sustainable health plans, PhilCare 360, and its technology-enabled customer experience. PhilCare offers a wide range of health care plans to serve the different requirements of individuals, group, and enterprise accounts.

 

PhilCare pioneered the country’s first Wellness Index in 2014.  Based on the findings of that study, PhilCare introduced the very first prepaid health plans in the country.  From prepaid to comprehensive coverage, PhilCare’s extensive line of products covers hospitalization, out-patient, and emergency healthcare needs across a nationwide network of hospitals, clinics, and physicians.

 

PhilCare 360, on the other hand, provides members with updates about health information, preventive measures against diseases and illnesses, and lifestyle trends that promote health and wellness. Meanwhile, PhilCare’s tech-enabled customer service efforts involve their accessible website and e-commerce, their call center that’s available 24/7, and its HeyPhil App where members can ask queries and requests for a Letter of Authorization (LOA).

 

PhilCare’s commitment to promoting wellness among Filipinos makes it an essential pillar of Maestro Holdings, a grand concord of four of the biggest and respected financial companies in the Philippines. Under the Maestro’s baton, PhilCare joins four of the most recognizable names in their respective industries: PhilsFirst, the first domestic non-life insurance company in the country; PhilLife, one of the most trusted insurance providers in the Philippines; PhilPlans, one of the leading financial solutions companies providing pension, education, and memorial programs.

Make Gardening Easier and More Convenient Using Garden Hose Reel

Do you enjoy working in the garden? In a day, how much time do you spend repairing and watering your plants? 

If you enjoy gardening and want to make your life easier, a hose reel is a solution to your clutter, knotted, and hoses stacked up by the tap!

If you're in your later years of life, you'll appreciate the convenience of automatic retractable reels because you won't have to carry or physically spin those hoses back into place. The length of the hose, the water pressure rating, and the rewind mechanism are used to classify these systems.

Garden hose reels come in a variety of styles, each of which is tailored to your hose materials and intended use.




The wall mount hose reel is one of the good alternatives for many households. You won't have to worry about weight because the device is attached to your home or wall, so you can get a bigger diameter reel and utilize long hoses to reach the furthest corners of your yard or garden. When it comes to durability and materials that will last long you can go for this model because the metal pieces are of good quality can last for many years. Manufacturers offer product warranties for this type. If you're willing to pay a little extra, look into automatic retractable systems, which eliminate the need to manually wind up the hose after use- it's the best hose reels for the money

portable hose reel is typically less priced and incredibly convenient for individuals on the go. These units may be stored in the garage or in the back of your truck and provide a convenient alternative to hauling a floppy hose around with you every time you need one. These systems are typically lightweight, have built-in handles, retract the hose with manual cranks, and can carry hoses up to 50-60 feet in length. If these descriptions are what you looking for, a portable hose reel is the best solution for you.





Between wall-mounted devices and hand-held portable hose reels, the hose reel cart bridges the gap. These units are constructed onto a movable cart and can accommodate longer hoses than other portable units, allowing you to reach the farthest reaches of your land. High-quality units have larger, more durable frames, braking systems, are exceptionally stable and tip-resistant, raise to greater back-saving positions and have comfortable grips to make moving them around easier. These units can also be stowed in the back of your truck to tackle assignments in outlying areas.

Choose the appropriate hose reel for your needs from the available options, and use your garden hose reels to make gardening and water activities simple and convenient!

3 Tips for Choosing a Home Inspector

Canada has some of the most beautiful and scenic landscapes in the world. The opportunity for outdoor recreation is abundant, from hiking and biking to skiing and fishing, kayaking and sailing. Canadians have a worldwide reputation for being polite, kind and welcoming. Canada now boasts the world’s 10th largest economy. The housing market is hotter than ever - Whistler homes for sale are selling at record rates, prices are escalating to record highs, driven by investor activity and solid demand from first-time buyers.




Before you buy a home, it’s always a good idea to get a professional home inspection. In most cases, you can make your purchase contract contingent on the inspection. That means if something major comes up during the inspection, you can cancel the contract, get your deposit back and walk away from the deal. Or you can negotiate with the seller to cut the price or make repairs to problem areas uncovered during the inspection. Below are 3 tips for choosing a home inspector.
  1. Get a reference from your real estate agent

Obviously your agent will have experience with many more home inspectors than you will - get a few references from your agent. Your agent should want the best for you and know what inspectors will give the most accurate inspection. Your agent should not worry about a ‘bad inspection’ causing a sale to fall apart. A good home inspector will not only be thorough with his/her inspection - but he/she will take the time to explain any issues he/she found. If the problem they have found is a common one and not something to be genuinely concerned about, they should explain this to you. 

  1. Can you be present with the inspector

It is recommended that you (the buyer) be present during the home inspection. Walk around the home with the inspector, this will allow you to ask questions. An added benefit is this will 

help you better understand the inspection report — which can feel pretty intense, especially if you're a first-time home buyer — and learn more about your potential new home. 

  1. Compare costs

Buying a house is expensive. From the down payment, appraisal fee, taxes, closing fee…these fees can easily add up to several thousands of dollars. Oftentimes buyers start looking for ways to cut costs. Do not cut costs with home inspection. There is nothing wrong with wanting to save money and find a good deal. In fact, we recommend that you talk to 3-5 inspectors and compare costs.


Buying a home is likely one of the most expensive purchases you will make in your lifetime. It makes sense to hire the best home inspector possible. The extra money you spend getting a top home inspector will be well worth it in the end.



How to differentiate Computer Glasses from Regular Eyeglasses

As the number of people working from home grows, so does the amount of time spent working remotely at a computer screen. As a result, the number of people wearing eyeglasses is increasing, as is the need for them.
Eyeglasses come in a variety of styles and varieties, depending on the needs of your eyes. 

Regular eyeglasses are prescription glasses that are worn to improve vision. They improve the clarity of text and images. Because these glasses are not usually coated with an anti-reflective coating, they do not shield from the harmful radiations emitted by computers.


Eyewear with anti-radiation lenses is known as computer glasses. While working on a computer, these lenses prevent harmful radiation and reduce glare, allowing for better eyesight and focus. These glasses are suitable for people of all ages and do not have any negative effects on the eyes. 

These glasses also minimize glare/reflection generated by water, direct sunshine, and other flat surfaces, in addition to computer radiation. They improve driving, motorcycling, and other outdoor activities by minimizing glare. These glasses are also suitable for those with perfect vision who prefer outdoor activities over computers or other gadgets.

How to Treat Your Talent So That They Want to Come Back

When you’re booking entertainment for a wedding, company party, or some other event big or small, it’s important always to make your performers feel that they are part of the proceedings rather than just service providers.

It can almost be tempting to think of the live talent as just someone who works for you, when in reality, your talent works for themselves. If you run a business and need to get performers in your doors every Friday and Saturday night, then you should take note of how these people like to be treated and make sure you adhere to that in the future.


Consider Paying Them As They Like

Your bar or restaurant may have a policy dictating how live performers are to be paid. Perhaps you pay half before the performance and the other half only afterward. Maybe you withhold it all until another week. Your cash can flow in all kinds of ways, so nothing is really unheard of today.


But if you want to encourage these artists to return to you and entertain your patrons, consider paying them according to their preferences. If it’s easier for them to take cash the day of the show, why not do it if it means you can establish a good relationship with the person? It could pay off for you eventually.



Offer Them Perks

Your live talent brings customers into your establishment. They provide you with a service while providing entertainment to the masses. So why not offer them something for their troubles, something more than just exposure?


For example, free drinks are a nice perk to offer to a singer, especially one who comes around all the time and who you know is reliable. Or you could even go so far as free food. The costs of these supplies should be offset by the increased volume of people you’re serving, and it will help to create a better relationship with the entertainer.

Help Them Market

You’re in business for you, to make money. But it takes all kinds of people to run a successful business, from your cooks all the way to the live entertainment that comes in on the weekends.


If you want everyone to do well, consider helping the performer to market upcoming shows there. You can drum up business for the singer’s performance at your establishment, and that in turn will help you to attract more business. It’s a mutually beneficial agreement, so why not go for this one?


In the end, if your live entertainment does well, you should do well, too. Treat your performers well, and they should continue making returns for you.
