Triple O’s Latest Branch Now Open At At SM Aura

  With Triple O’s latest branch opening at SM Aura Primier. Filipinos now have a chance to experience what makes Triple O’s a must-visit food stop in the Taguig area.

    After its hugely successful launch in SM Megamall, the iconic Canadian Fast food Restaurant Triple Os recently opened its second branch at the food court of SM Aura Premier. For anyone who has been to Canada. Triple O's by White Spot will be instantly recognizable.

  Established by Nat Bailey in 1928 as the first drive in restaurant ever. Triple O's took an uncompromising stance on quality and flavor. propelling the brand into the powerhouse that it is today. it can also be said that Triple O’s huge success is due to the legendary Triple O’s Burger, which continues to make waves among customers who simple can’t get enough of.

  “Triple O” came from the shorthand language of the drive-in service attendant- otherwise known as “carhops – manning the immensely popular Canadian restaurant. As drive-in guest chose from mayonnaise and relish, their order slips were printed with X’s and O’s on the slip meant plenty of everything, and that’s exactly what Triple O’s by White Spot serves on the menu
   Triple O’s  proclamation of having the sauciest, juiciest, tastiest, best burgers around, may sound like a tagline, but the 100% Canadian organic beef patty that goes into every burger is a convincing reason to back up the dialogue. Alongside its inimitable burgers,  which are perfectly grilled to t a  crunchy, flavorful crisp, as well as a selection of other main course, such as chicken, pasta and fish dishes.
   In Manila, we have also become known as the place that serves the best milkshakes in town,which have developed quite a loyal following.

TB DOTS Clap for a TB-Free Philippines

    Recently, the TB or Not TB Team visited two schools in Quezon City for its #TBDay school tour—San Vicente Elementary School (September 8) and North Fairview Elementary School (September 22).

As part of the Department of Health’s (DOH) campaign to raise awareness on tuberculosis (TB), the students participated in fun and educational activities, which centered on fighting the stigma and debunking the myths and misconceptions about the disease.

Moreover, the highlight of the #TBDay school tour was the teaching of a children’s clap game.   Called “TB DOTS Clap Game,” it aims to educate students about TB DOTS (Directly Observed Treatment, Short-Course), an effective method recommended by the World Health Organization (WHO) to cure TB and stop its spread in communities. In the Philippines, TB DOTS is offered for free thru accredited DOTS Centers.

TB DOTS Clap Game
Sa tuwing umuubo ang tatay ko
Natatakot ako baka TB na ito
Pero wag ka, wag ka
TB ay nagagamot
Kapag kumukonsulta ka
Di dapat mahiya kung may TB ka
Matanda man o bata
May ngipin o wala
Mahirap, mayaman
Bariles, payat o seksi pa
TB ay tatama kung mahina ka
Let’s play the TB DOTS Clap for a TB-Free Philippines!

Take A Free Tour At The Most Most Modern Bread Factory In The Country

Who knew that one of the country’s leading educational tours takes place in a…bakery
With more than 2.5 million visitors in the last 10 years, majority of whom are students from 15,000 different schools, this obviously isn’t your run-of-the-mill neighborhood panaderia.

   State-of-the-art plant that can produce 650,000 loaves and buns daily Gardenia’s plant in BiƱan, Laguna has been one of the top educational field trip destinations in the country since it opens the factory for free plant visits. The company showcases its world-class bread manufacturing facility that is ISO and HACCP certified, giving consumers the assurance of product quality and food safety in a well-sanitized bakery environment.
It is the company’s pride and joy where, each day, 650,000 loaves of bread and snack items are produced in a fully automated facility, untouched by human hands. Gardenia’s plant in Laguna is toured by as much as 3,000 to 8,000 visitors a day.

  Baking breads untouched by human hands
The plant tour aims to impart to the students the knowledge about modern bread production that is untouched by human hands. Additionally, it promotes the importance of proper nutrition and sanitation practices as foundations to a healthy mind and body, and as well values education.

   While Gardenia’s secrets to success will be shared to visitors via an audio-visual presentation (AVP), the most exciting part of the program is the actual catwalk tour of the visitors as they enjoy viewing the complete plant facility and step-by-step process of baking breads, the Gardenia way. Nobody leaves the factory without taking their good poses with a bread sample at the photo opportunity areas. No wonder they cannot forget their unusual field trip, baking breads untouched by human hands!
Making bread the Gardenia way is fascinating and educational for kids and adults alike - to see how staple food, like bread, is made on such a massive scale.

The NBSH Championship Finale Hits The Mark

After undergoing a tough and gruelling three-stage sandwich-making competition, Gardenia’s the “Next Big Sandwich Hit (NBSH)” event has finally come to an end with a literally delicious bang! All the ten teams battled tooth and nail to get the top prize and really made life difficult for the judges who had to choose the grand winner in this year’s competition.

“It was really difficult to be one of the judges in this year’s Next Big Sandwich Hit competition.  Not only were all the sandwiches delicious but they were all works of art!  From the preparation of the ingredients all the way to the plating, you can really see each teams’ creativity, passion, dedication, and drive to win.  From start to finish, all the ten teams really gave it their all and I have to give my commendation to them.  I know how hard they all worked and in my book they are all winners,” said Chef Jeremy Favia, one of the judges in the NBSH competition Championship Finale.

What is the future of your brain? Will technology help?

   You may be surprised at how quickly the future is coming, in brain science and in wearable computers. Imagine a time when you can send a text message to someone just by thinking their name, or know when you will get a headache or fall asleep or have a seizure – an hour ahead of time, when you can decode what a baby is saying or thinking by listening with special headphones, when a doctor can log in to your mind and diagnose a problem or an injury, when a person’s guilt or innocence can be quantified scientifically, when a company can know precisely what its customers want – even before they do, when you can think a question and have Google answer it – directly into your mind! This Executive Talks will show that this time is coming, in the living future, and for this we can thank innovations in technology and in neuroscience.

Technology will unlock the power of the brain – to make the sick healthy, and the healthy superhuman.

Empowering Workers And Sustaining Enterprises Is Key Theme Of Biennial 2014 National Productivity Convention

Press Release

   Empowering Filipino workers and sustaining the country's enterprises through productivity and innovation will be the key buzzwords that participants will hear and discuss in the 2014 National Productivity Convention that will take place on Wednesday, 16 October, at the Heritage Hotel in Manila.

    "We look forward to the 2014 National Productivity Convention for it will offer us the opportunity to engage micro, small, and medium enterprises--the backbone of the Philippine economy--on the important issue of productivity and innovation which is key to empowering our workers and sustaining the growth of our enterprises towards regional and global competitiveness," said Baldoz as she primes up publicity for the biennial event.

     "This Convention is our contribution to the celebration of October as the National Quality and Productivity Month," she added.

      Secretary Baldoz will deliver a keynote address at the Convention.

      This is the third National Productivity Convention since it was first held six years ago.

      The National Wages and Productivity Commission, which is organizing and hosting the event, said it had chosen the theme, “Productivity, Innovation, and Enterprise Development: Empowering Workers, Sustaining Enterprises”, as fitting to the thrust of the DOLE of putting productivity and innovation to the fore of its roadmap to decent work that will contribute to the national goal of massive employment generation and substantial poverty reduction.

Compact without the compromise High performance Dyson vacuum technology: Concentrated

Rising populations, urban living, and less space have all lead to us living in more compact spaces. Making the most of every inch is key to compact living. It’s not just about how you furnish your pocket-sized apartment; keeping a small space clean and tidy can help to create a more welcoming environment.

For British technology company Dyson, developing solutions for smaller spaces is a core part of their £1.5m a week research and development programme. Fitting on an A4 sized piece of paper, DC48 is engineered to be Dyson’s smallest, quietest Ball™ vacuum cleaner yet.

James Dyson, Company founder and inventor of the bagless vacuum cleaner and bladeless fan, notes that “globally attitudes to technology are starting to design. People want better technology. Technology that makes their lives easier, and all in more compact, energy efficient forms.” The technology entrepreneur challenged his 1500 strong engineering team to find a solution.

The secret behind the DC48 is the Dyson digital motor - half the size of conventional motors with twice the power. It’s controlled by a microprocessor that makes 6000 decisions a second in order to optimise performance. This is a miniature revolution. With the tiny motor, the machine weighs in at just 2.7kg.

Powerful but quiet: Engineers were challenged to develop a powerful yet quiet vacuum cleaner. Acoustic engineers developed simplified airways in the floor tools, funnelling the turbulent air downwards to dampen the sound. They adjusted the motor’s orientation, and smoothed the airflow inside the vortex fingers of the cyclone to reduce sound from the machine.

Ball™ technology: The machine is light to pull, can pivot on the spot, and follows obediently without snagging on corners. It has a low centre of gravity for negotiating tight turns and getting around furniture. There are over 100 components arranged in the ball including the motor, ducting and 5 metres of cable.

Improved floor tools: These have been re-engineered to improve pick-up and sound quality, and reduce weight. Simplified airways decrease noise levels and a self-tightening mechanism keeps the brush bar stable. A dust capture channel prevents dirt from escaping back to the floor, increasing pick-up. The new configuration of carbon fibre filaments and nylon brushes removes fine dust from hard floors and ground-in dirt from carpets.

Duman Duman! Get Some Before It's All Gone At Sugarleaf Makati

Imagine a variety of grain that is planted only in a couple of weeks in select rice paddies in only a couple towns in Pampanga then harvested as the cool breeze of the holiday months sweep the rice fields. Processing this grain is a colourful undertaking in itself–from harvesting in early dawn, to winnowing, toasting and pounding to remove the chaff.  For every hectare planted with this special variety yields a mere 4.5 cavans of grain while a harvest of the normal variety of rice yields up to 300 cavans.
Due to the limited harvest quantity, which was fortunately spared by the typhoons that hit Central Luzon this year, the demand for duman is much greater than the supply.  However, despite its rather steep price, those who’ve enjoyed it vouch that it is worth every grain. It may be consumed by itself, rather like breakfast cereal, or taken with steaming gatas damulag (carabao milk) or tsokolate de batirol (frothy native chocolate).
Sugarleaf Makati shares this prized delicacy in limited quantities to residents of the metropolis. Together with La Moderna’s artisan bakery products as well as other carefully selected healthyummy food and non-food products
