YKK 2018 brings back Real Madrid coaches to teach football to Filipino kids


June 23, 2018. MULTI-TITLED Spanish football club Real Madrid together with YKK Holding Asia PTE. Ltd. (YHA) and YKK Philippines, Inc. pays it forward to young Filipino football players as the YKK Asia Group Kids Football Clinic kicks off today at the McKinley Hill Stadium.

Real Madrid Foundation coaches Pablo Gomez Revenga, Santiago Sanchez Martin and Hector Vicente trained 30 local football coaches immediately after the Press Conference held at Shangri-La at the Fort on June 22 to prepare for a two-day clinic for kids aged 8-15 on June 23 and 24. The Real Madrid coaches from the most multi-titled La Liga team in history with 33 Championship titles to its name, shared and demonstrated world-class training methodologies and training techniques to the local coaches, who will in turn assist the Spanish coaches in the Saturday and Sunday kids clinics.

300 underprivileged children from three NGOs – Child Hope Asia, Gawad Kalinga and a community in Batangas -- will learn football over two days of fun and interactive training sessions from the three RMF coaches who will also share footballing tips, techniques and basic fundamentals with the young athletes. The clinics have morning (8:30 a.m.) and afternoon (1:30 p.m.) sessions at the McKinley Hill Stadium. 
Local football coaches are trained by Real Madrid Foundation coaches at the YKK Asia Group Kids Football Clinic at McKinley Hill Stadium.


The YKK football clinic was first held in the Philippines in 2012, and this second installment once again gives more local kids and coaches an avenue to experience world-class football from the international coaches.

"Our objective is to give the underprivileged the chance to be part of this football clinic. YKK's presence in the Philippines dates back since 1978, and our growth and success during these 40 years owes a great deal to the local society which our customers and employees also form part of. It is a great opportunity and pleasure for us to give back and help create the initial spark of encouragement for children who do not normally experience big name events due to its exclusivity. This time, it’s their turn to experience greatness," said President of YKK Philippines, Inc., Mr Tadashi Koshio.

The clinics draw on YKK’s corporate philosophy of the “Cycle of Goodness”, which states that “No one prospers without rendering benefit to others,” said Mr. Kosuke Miimi, YHA President. “AKFC is an integral program that not only values children but the community as well. This event gives opportunities to those who normally have lesser chances at sports and brings the community together to celebrate the love of football. We believe that football is a common language that everyone can enjoy regardless of culture, nationality or religion.”

"We hope this clinic will develop more players and inspire other players," said Philippine Football Federation General Secretary Ed Gastanes during yesterday's press conference at the Shangri-La at the Fort in Taguig City. “We are always pleased that the Real Madrid Foundation is bringing their style of play and style of coaching here. We are happy that YKK Asia Group and YKK Philippines have partnered with Real Madrid Foundation for another meaningful and significant clinic," he added.

"Watching local coaches and children engage and participate in a sport which knows no language or social barriers is the ultimate reward," added Revenga, who is Real Madrid Foundation's technical management clinics and international technical schools director.

Each participant in the clinic receives a full set of YKK/Real Madrid Foundation football jersey kit which includes football boots, a cap, socks, and a certificate of participation. Other sporting equipment such as footballs, sports bibs and training cones will also be provided by YKK over the three-day event. Furthermore, YKK will donate all footballs and training equipment after the event to the invited NGO.

Land Registration Authority’s Anywhere-to-Anywhere Program!

Less Hassle, More Hustle
Land Registration Authority’s
Anywhere-to-Anywhere Program makes the process easy for landowners
Before, getting Certified True Copies (CTCs) of land titles is seen as a challenge by landowners. One of their main concerns is the complicated process that takes a lot of back and forth, often leaving them with no choice but to dedicate a set number of hours or days just to secure a copy of their title. It’s especially more disadvantageous to those whose lands are situated in far-flung areas due to the time and money that they have to spend to acquire the document.
The Land Registration Authority (LRA), thankfully, gracefully rose to the challenge of providing a solution to this dilemma with the launch of its Anywhere-to-Anywhere (A2A) Program back in 2012. The project’s main aim is to provide convenience to landowners by enabling them to request for their CTC titles wherever they are in the Philippines, and claim them at LRA’s Registration of Deeds offices nationwide.
 
 
The effort has made a significant improvement in the overall efficiency of the Agency, as well as the experience of property holders. Now, landowners no longer need to make space on their daily routines just to apply for a CTC of property title because the request and collection for one can already be made on a Registry of Deeds office near them.
Before, some landowners even had to visit provinces where the title of their properties are kept just to obtain a CTC. With the launch of the A2A service, however, they can now wisely spend the time visiting and reconnecting with their family there instead. Moreover, the program takes out the factors of wasted time and money off the equation. With the help of the program, individuals can now use their time and budget to enjoy the north and south of a vacation break and not waste their leaves taking care of the official document. There’s also no need to leave family members for a trip since the LRA has brought the service closer to its stakeholders.
 

The A2A service is a good example of simplifying a process while providing more to its stakeholders. It organizes land deeds into a computerized registry, making the system more centralized and accessible to both the agency and landowners. The digital move minimizes the hassle of application, enabling landowners to have more time doing other important activities.

 
At present, the LRA has 164 Registry of Deeds offices nationwide, 159 of which are ready to accommodate A2A requests. Other digital projects that are in the pipeline of the agency include the Title Trace Back Service, Geo-Spatial Services, and Parcel Verification Service. Property holders can get more information about the A2A service by visiting LRA’s website here. For a list of Registry of Deeds offices nationwide, head to this link here.

Manila Mini Maker Faire at The Mind Museum


MANILA, Philippines - June 2018 - For the second year in a row, the Philippines will be in the global maker map again as The Mind Museum, Make Magazine, and co-presenter 3M


The Philippines, organize this year's Manila Mini Maker Faire (MMMF) on June 23-24, 2018 at The Mind Museum. The entrance to this event is free to the public.


A Maker Faire is "a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. It's a venue for makers to show examples of their work and interact with others about it. Many makers say they have no other place to share what they do. DIY (Do It-Yourself) is often invisible in our communities, taking place in shops, garages and on kitchen tables. It's typically out of the spotlight of traditional art or science or craft events. Maker Faire makes visible these projects and ideas that we don't encounter every day."


Local Ingenuity Shines 

The Manila Mini Maker Faire 2018 will have over 70 Makers from all over the Philippines,' including Visayas and Mindanao. Projects like paper crafts, upcycled furniture, electronic beatboxes, and a lightweight car body made from abaca will be showcased together with the usual favorites like robots, 3D printing, STEAM education, and so much more! Attendees can also sign up for a variety of free and ticketed workshops. Workshops such as paper engineering, day and pottery-making, 3D design, and more will be available for everyone interested to learn new things.

This year's MMMF also aims to establish a stronger maker community through networking and collaboration with makers from different parts of the country. A special innovation tour, hosted by 3M Philippines, will be held before the faire to help inspire makers to continue making. This will be followed by a Maker's Networking Night to give an extraordinary chance for participants to interact with their fellow makers.

Linking Science and Art 

What is game-changing about the Manila Mini Maker Faire and the Maker movement, in general, is that they actively explore the cross-overs among the fields of science, engineering, art, performance, and craft. It is no longer about isolated crafts or guilds but about how one field can inform the other and produce innovative things! The technologies that are birthed in these junctions are extremely interesting and many of them could become breakthroughs. The key is experimentation and collaboration not just with the specialists in your field but with others working on other kinds of materials, processes, and knowledge.

"The Mind Museum continues to push for the Filipino public to be part not just of the conversations in science and engineering around the world but also in making and doing. This second MMMF in a row that The Mind Museum is hosting is a salute to the makers in our local community who not only affirms but persist, despite the odds, to breed and raise the bar of creativity in the way technology can be at the service of human lives," says Maribel Garcia, curator of The Mind Museum.

"3M Philippines has been behind The Mind Museum since its beginning as a founding donor. We are pleased to support the Manila Mini Maker Faire on its second run this 2018. Innovation is at the heart of 3M. We never stop being curious because there is a value in asking what if. In wondering. Wonder leads to improving the world around us," shares Ariel Lacsamana, President & Managing Director of 3M Philippines.

The original Maker Faire event was held in San Mateo, CA in 2006 and in 2017 celebrated its twelfth annual show with some 1,250 makers and 150,000 people in attendance. World Maker Faire New York, the other flagship event, has grown in five years to 900+ makers and 90,000 attendees. Twenty-three other larger scale Maker Faires occur in cities around the world— Detroit, Atlanta, Berlin, Paris, Rome, Tokyo, and Shenzhen to name a few— and over 120 community-driven, independently organized Mini Maker Faires are now being produced around the world.

The Manila Mini Maker Faire is made possible by 3M Philippines and also supported by Norde

International Distributors, PCBWay, and Lush.

Visit The Mind Museum on June 23-24, 2018, and personally experience just what local passion and ingenuity can conjure up. Drop by, and be inspired by the various Filipino makers that manage to make their mark through DIY!

THE launch of BRAND PILIPINAS Choosing Homegrown brands


It is a high time that every Filipinos must come together and support this movement. In the end, everyone will get benefited with this campaign. 

Let's start with the smallest unit of the society our "family". We must first teach our children the spirit of patriotism. Loving your own first, rather than the foreign one. I strongly believe the products we have is highly competitive and some of them are being imported to the different country.

I have worked abroad 10 years ago, and I saw a product sold there. I was amazed and proud that our products reach that country. It only means our goods and even services are globally recognized by other people and nation. Let's be proud we are Filipinos and I am proud of being Filipino. 


June 21, 2018 - Top Filipino brands and organizations have come together to launch a movement that hopes to propel the single most important brand for all Filipinos—Brand Pilipinas.

Brand Pilipinas hopes the movement will influence Filipinos to adopt a “Filipino-first” mentality by choosing homegrown brands over the more popular and highly-commercial international brands.

The launch, held at the Green Sun Hotel in Makati City, gathered more than a hundred top local brands who signed up to be partners in the Brand Pilipinas advocacy which aims to valorize local brands, locally made products and our homegrown artisans.

“The challenge for most Filipino brands is how to conquer that long-standing perception among that product made in the Philippines is sub-par. It’s time we had a paradigm-shift because this kind of mentality not only hurts local businesses but the economic reputation of the Philippines as a whole,” Brad Geiser, co-convenor of the Brand Pilipinas movement said.
 

David Lim, Founder of Brown & Proud Movement stressed that it is high time for Filipino brands to take center stage. “Be brown and proud! Let’s show our love for local products by supporting local enterprises,” he said.

United Neon Advertising COO Freddie Arlantico also points out: “We are a country that's richly blessed with the best resources -- our people. Put together the Filipinos' creativity, skills, innovative ideas with the new technologies that are easily accessible by everyone and you have a formula for global excellence.”

The full-day event featured inspiring talks on Why Local B2B Brands are Slaying It, The Search for Origins - The Quest for Relevance in Food, Emerging Social Enterprises, Local is the New Premium Brand Pilipinas- The Arts, and finally, Why the Philippines is Poised to be the Next Tech Hub.


Apart from local brands, the movement also saw the participation of individuals and private businesses from various industries.

Brand Pililpinas Movement Co-Convenor actor  and Founder of Liwanag ng Kapayapaan Foundation Robin Padilla said: “Ngayon ang oras para ipakita natin sa buong mundo ang ating dangal bilang Pilipino. Matapang, magaling, malikhain, mapagmahal sa bayan. Yan ang tatak ng tunay na Pilipino na kinakatawan ng Brand Pilipinas.”
 

“We want Brand Pilipinas to be the brand we wear, the brand we eat, the brand we use, the brand of which we could all be proud of,” Group of Five Creative Concepts Founder and CEO George Royeca, saying the movement hopes to see this vision become a reality very soon.

Guests were also treated to local performances from Dulaang UP and Pilipinas Got Talent star Jade Riccio. The event also featured a fashion show by noted Filipino weave designer Joseph Aloysius Montelibano, a perfect tribute to our Filipino artists.

The Brand Pilipinas Conference is organized and supported by the following partners: Brown & Proud Movement, GeiserMaclang Marketing Communications, Group of Five Creative Concepts, IPG Mediabrands, Liwanag ng Kapayaan Foundation, Robin Padilla, United Neon Advertising, and Vidanes Celebrity Management.
