NOVUHAIR SUMMER HAIR CARE TIPS

Heading to the beach may be the most exciting part of summer. It is almost always part of the itinerary this season for most people. Others prefer to give in to their adrenaline rush climbing that mountain slope or just about anything that gets you that summer tan to fit in the crowd.
Did you know that spending extended hours under the extreme summer sun can pose serious danger to your hair and scalp? The same UV rays that brings damage to your skin without proper protection can equally hurt your hair and scalp.
Below are some of the problems your hair can encounter during the season:
·         Split-Ends - UV rays and extreme high temperature can take their toll on your strands. The heat drains the moisture of your hair out causing breakage.
·         Double Trouble – Rebonded or permed hair needs extra attention as high temperature well as humidity disrupts the cuticle breaking some of the chemical bonds that keep the hair straight or curls and roughing up the cuticle, taking away shine and smoothness.
·         Scalp problem – Scalp may also get sun-burned if you don’t use cover-ups for your head.
·         Grease problem – Summer sun and humidity can bring extra grease on your hair, leaving it vulnerable to damage.
·         Chlorine Stress – Swimming in the pool subjects your hair to chlorine.  The outer layers of the cuticle of the hair opens up when you swim and chlorinated water seeps into the center of the hair thus making your hair more brittle.
·         Excessive Salt Water – Salt water can cause the same damage as chlorinated ones. Salt water dries on the hair it creates a high-saline solution which can build up and cause hair to feel dry, weighed down and hard to manage.
All these problem can be addressed by keeping your hair clean and showered after each activities. Take vitamin supplements that benefits you hair such as Vitamin C and Biotin. Getting your hair pampered will also give respite to the sun and chemical abuse.

 
Novuhair, nature’s answer to hair loss is composed of 19 Natural ingredients with some of the known medicinal plants such as Ginger, Pennywort and Ginseng blended with natural essences of rosemary and peppermint.
Novuhair nourishes the scalp and hair by increasing the flow of nutrients and improving blood circulation to the scalp which is very important after subjecting your hair from all your summer activities.  Novuhair also helps hydrate the scalp, maintain the hair’s natural luster and prevent early hair graying, hair dryness and itching.

G.A.O.C opens it latest branch at S Maison Conrad Hotel




GAOC opens latest branch at the exclusive S Maison, Conrad Manila Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center or GAOC, arguably one of the best in dental services, not just in the country, but in Southeast Asia, opens its newest clinic at the exclusive S Maison, Conrad Manila at the Mall of Asia Complex in Pasay City.

GAOC was founded in 2001 by world-renowned dental surgeon Steve Mark G. Gan D.M.D, who took his Residency in Advanced Prosthodontics in the prestigious University of Southern California-School of Dentistry and Prosthodontic Osseointegrated Implants at University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) and is a member of both the American Society of Osseointegration and the American College of Oral Implantology. He is also a former board member of Professional Regulation Commission (PRC) Board of Dentistry, and is presently a visiting Professor at the University of Genoa, Genova, Italy.

Dr. Gan is one who never rest on his laurels. His insatiable drive to teach and learn often brings him abroad to attend and participate in dental conferences and symposia, time and again establishing the benchmark in the industry.

“We’re proud to bring GAOC’s brand of superior quality dental care to this part of Metro Manila, and at such a fine location,” declares Dr. Gan. “As with all our other branches, you can be assured of the best dental services available, from top-notch, internationally-trained dentists, and with state-of-the-art equipment –all housed in a clinic that can only be described as impressive.”

Consistently raising the standards of dental practice in the Philippines, and living up to Dr. Gan’s singular vision of introducing world-class, state-of-the-art dental services to the country, GAOC employs a highly regarded team of dentists — caring, gentle, professional — all of whom regularly undertake training programs both here and abroad to keep abreast of the latest technology, trends and best practices in dental medicine. 

 The innovator is in: Dr. Steve Mark Gan of GAOC

Dr. Steve Mark Gan, founder of Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center or GAOC, the leading dental center in the Philippines and in his over 16 years of illustrious dental practice in the country, has constantly raised the bar and blazed trails in the field. But his path to success, his rise to the top, was never an easy one, and is as much a product of hard work, dedication, and unrelenting desire to innovate and learn.
After graduating from the University of the East-College of Dentistry in 1993, and following subsequent residencies in Advanced Prosthodontics and Prosthodontic Osseointegrated Implants at the University of Southern California-School of Dentistry and University of California-Los Angeles (UCLA) respectively, Dr. Gan made the conscious decision to return to Philippines, with the noble and selfless desire to not only make a difference in the lives of others, but to bring the local dental practice – in particular dental implant surgery – to world-class standards.

Thus, from his humble clinic in Binondo with its antiquated dental chair that he inherited from his grandfather, Dr. Gan took the big, daring leap by opening a state-of-the-art clinic at the Medical Plaza Makati, then considered the premier address for medical practioners. With that bold move – not a few skeptics considered it a foolhardy endeavor – and by investing in only latest equipment and technologies, Gan Advanced Osseointegration Center or GAOC was born, which today boasts of seven state-of-the art branches, the latest being at the SM Seaside Cebu and at S Maison, Conrad Hotel.

From then on forward – there was simply was no turning back for the inimitable pioneer that is Dr. Gan — GAOC, through its consistent culture of excellence and innovation, earned its place as the dentist to the stars, with a steady stream of celebrities turning to, and placing their trust in, Dr. Gan and his outstanding team for their dental requirements. But Dr. Gan himself, never one to rest on his laurels, would continue to further himself by attending seminars abroad, thereby keeping himself abreast with the latest technologies, trends and best practices in dental medicine. This he has passed on to his ever growing team of dentists who are also made to attend seminars here and abroad on regular basis.

This continuous passion to learn and pass on to others led him to serve as Former Chairman and Member of the Board of Dentistry, Philippine Regulation Commission, from 2010 to 2016; and as  Executive Vice President, Philippine Association of Professional Regulatory Board, from  2014 to 2016. He is also a proud a member of both the American Society of Osseointegration and the American College of Oral Implantology, among other prestigious professional organizations.

And with Prosthodontics as his specialty; that is, one that deals with the treatment and rehabilitation of oral function and appearance of patients suffering from deficient teeth or even disfigurement, Dr. Gan plays a crucial role in rebuilding a person’s self-esteem and self-confidence. He sub-specializes as well in oral implantology and maxillofacial surgery, the only sub-specialty recognized by the American Dental Association for treating deformities in the head and neck region. 

No doubt, Dr. Steve Mark Gan is nothing if not an innovator and a moving force in the dental practice today.  Driven by his goal to put the whole Philippine dental industry on the global map – with dental practitioners who are at par with world standards – Filipinos can now put on a smile, confident in the knowledge that there’s an approachable, affable, and highly-skilled dentist they can turn to for all their oral health needs.


Complimenting GAOC’s team of experts are the most advanced diagnostic technology and dental equipment available. Its clinics and treatment facilities are sleek, immaculate, modern in look, yet are. 

















GAOC’s other branches are located at the Medical Plaza, Makati; St. Luke’s Medical Center Global City, Taguig; The Residences at Greenbelt, Makati; Trinoma Mall, Quezon City; Robinsons Magnolia, Quezon City; SM Seaside Cebu City, and Asian Residences Condotel Civic Place Alabang.

Century Tuna launches My Recipe to Sexy



In this media event I learn three varieties of recipe to enjoy Century Tuna.

I love to eat fish since I was a kid. We were raised in a community surrounded by water and at a young age I learned how to catch fish in the flood or river and cook it for our meal. Until now, the love for fish is not changing even with canned goods like century tuna. It's the best canned tuna we love buying from the market.

We all know Century Tuna as the choice of health and fitness buffs, but it is also the favorite of many foodies out there as it’s a great, delicious addition to any dish. So why not have three of the most popular male actors share their favorite, easy-to-prepare and oh-so delicious Century Tuna recipes?

So what brings these 3 fit and sexy gentlemen together this scorching summer, you ask? They’re the latest faces – and hot bods – in the Century Tuna’s newest summer TVC, one that spells fun and fitness by way of its “My Recipe to Sexy” campaign!  For those who’ve not seen the ad which is now airing on primetime TV, it features the trio as “hot cooks” as they respectively present their favorite recipes to a sexy, healthy bod: Tuna Egg Salad Sandwich ala Matteo; Tuna Pancit Canton ala Paulo; and Tuna Silog ala Gerald. All nutritious, delicious, and most of all easy to prepare!

“Like Gerald, Mateo and Paulo, Century Tuna is very versatile,” relates Greg Banzon, Century Pacific Food, Inc. VP & General Manager. ”You can use it in different dishes, allowing you to be creative in creating your own recipe to sexy!”


“Breakfast for me is very important,” Gerald shares. “And I wanted a dish that’s a healthier take on the typical Pinoy breakfast so I came up with this super delicious Tuna Silog. “
“I’m always on the go,” Matteo reveals. “I love having a lean sandwich because it’s easy to prepare. Just like my Tuna Egg Salad Sandwich on wheat bread which is healthy yet very satisfying!”

“Tuna Pancit Canton is the ultimate, yummy comfort food – something you can make in a jiffy!” Paulo declares.

In other words, as summer equals frolic and fun under the sun, it doesn’t mean you have to deprive yourself just to stay fit and sexy. Thanks to Century Tuna, which is lean and adaptable, you can easily prepare and enjoy a myriad of irresistible meals. And if you can have these hot cooks as fitsperation, even better!

USAID forum showcases Coca-Cola


The Coca-Cola Company in the ASEAN has become an industry model on how private entities can contribute in the global campaign for water security and in mitigating the impact of climate change.
 
During the Media Forum on Water Security and Climate Change hosted by the United States Agency International Development (USAID), Coca-Cola ASEAN Quality Safety and Environment Director Arnel Cabungcal shared the experiences of the beverage company’s Replenish Program in its regional operations.

The forum was organized to provide an overview and increase the awareness of media on the current water surety and climate change challenges in the Philippines; and to encourage media and journalists to take a more active role in reporting issues and solutions on water.

The various water stewardship programs of Coca-Cola in the ASEAN were handpicked by USAID to be showcased alongside the projects and experiences of the local government of Zamboanga City, the Cagayan de Oro Water District, and the Central Philippine University in Iloilo.
 
Under the Be Secure Program, USAID and Coca-Cola worked with various governments to build capacity for long-term water security, improved access to water, and the development of more resilient communities.
 
“Our goal is to give back an amount of water equivalent to what we use in all of our products and their production by 2020. We work with external experts to quantify the impact of our community water partnership projects. And we continue to replenish more today and in the years to come,” said Cabungcal.
 
Coca-Cola operations in Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia are all water neutral, which means that they are able to return to nature and the communities every drop of water used in their beverage production. Other countries in the ASEAN region, including the Philippines, are all progressing with local community water programs to achieve country-level water neutrality while engaging with stakeholders and consumers to share their water partnership story.
 
Globally, Coca-Cola has already achieved water neutrality in their beverage production since August 2016 through 248 community partnership projects in 71 countries.
 
In the ASEAN, Coca-Cola also strongly supports watershed protection with 11 projects including the conservation of Thailand’s KlongYan watershed, the Plain of Reeds in Vietnam’s Mekong River, and a five-year partnership with WWF for the conservation of the Philippines’ Ipo Watershed.
 
The water replenishment program of Coca-Cola in the ASEAN centers on safe water access and sanitation to rural communities in more established markets like the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and Vietnam, while countries like Laos and Myanmar are providing water access to communities around their bottling facilities.
 
In every ASEAN country, Coca-Cola has continuously partnered with governments and non-government organizations, following the golden triangle rule – a synergy of cohesive action plan among the private sector, government, and NGOs that will directly benefit the communities.
 
In the Philippines, hydraulic ram pumps transport fresh water to upland communities without using electricity or fossil fuel.  More than 60,000 people have been impacted by 129 ram pump sites across the country.
 
In Malaysia, Coca-Cola has partnered with Raleigh International since 2006 to bring clean water to over 8,447 villagers in Borneo Island through gravity-fed water supply systems. Since 2015, Coca-Cola has been working with EKOCENTER to provide clean water, solar power and community centers to villages in Vietnam. The Company has also partnered with WWF since 2008 on watershed conservation activities.
 
A partnership with USAID’s Indonesia Urban Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (IUWASH) project has enabled Coca-Cola to construct rainwater absorption wells in upstream areas that has benefitted 54,744 villagers. The Company is also working with PACT to bring safe drinking water and basic sanitation infrastructure to more than 12,500 villagers in Myanmar.

Coca-Cola has also partnered with Cambodian Women for Peace and Development since 2013 to provide water access to 6,810 people in Phsar Chhang and Kompong through water pipe connections. In Laos, The Company has provided a rainwater harvesting system for 450 rural households using 1,200 large (2,000 liter) rainwater harvesting jars.
 
In Thailand, Coca-Cola has been working with Utokapat Foundation, HAII, Population and Community Development Association and others since 2007 to enable the RAKNAM platform to reach over 1 million residents.
 
“While we’re proud of our progress in achieving water neutrality, we can and will do more as we help to change the lives of people in underserved communities across ASEAN,” said Cabungcal.
