PBB 737 | Aila out of Pinoy Big Brother house, Bailey tops public vote in 2nd Eviction Night

13-year-old Muslim housemate Aila Antopina leaves the Pinoy Big Brother house as she got the lowest votes percentage among the five nominees for eviction.

The "Faithful Daughter ng Bacolod" received only 10.38% of the total. Bailey May got the highest percentage with 29.28% of votes, followed by Zonia Mejia (23.4%), Ylona Garcia (21.89%),  and Ryan Bacalla (15.04%).

Looks like Bailey is the hardest to beat, when it comes to voters support. The public's decision to save him once more means something, but the housemates' perception of him means another.

DONALD TRUMP ISSUE | Companies withdraw support, countries back out of Miss Universe pageant

Image Source: House
Looks like real estate tycoon and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has a lot to lose after his statement on Mexican immigrants beings sent to to US who "bring drugs and crime, and some are rapists."

Because of this statement, companies, organizations, and countries have withdrawn their support for the Miss Universe beauty pageant. The list is as follows:

On June 25, Univision said it won’t air the Miss USA pageant and will cut all business ties with Trump who owns the Miss Universe Organization.

On June 29, media giants NBC (US) and Televisa (Mexico) said it's ending its relationship with Trump and won't air any of his pageants - Miss USA and Miss Universe.

On June 30, TV company OraTV said it’s ending a project it was developing with Trump.

On July 1, clothing line Macy’s said it will stop carrying an exclusive line of Trump menswear.

Serta said it is winding down a licensing agreement for its Trump Home mattress collection and won’t renew the deal upon expiry on 2015.

US rapper Flo Rida, set to perform at the July 12 Miss USA pageant, dropped out. This meant all of the announced performers (plus hosts and some judges) have already quit.

On July 2, New York City officials said they are reviewing the city’s contracts with Trump in light of his comments. Cable and satellit TV networj Reelz said it will air the Miss USA pageant, however, Trump won’t make any money from it.

On July 3, auto-racing sports venture NASCAR said it won’t hold its season-ending awards ceremony at the Trump National Doral Miami.

On July 4, Panama joined several other Latin American countries who dropped out of the Miss Universe pageant.


On July 6,  Walt Disney's ESPN said it won’t hold its ESPN Celebrity Golf Classic at Trump National Golf Club in Los Angeles.

On July 7, clothing company PVH Corp said it’s winding down its licensing deal with Trump. The PGA of America said it is moving its Grand Slam of Golf from Trump’s Los Angeles course. 

On July 8, celebrity chef Jose Andres backed out of a plan to open a flagship restaurant in Donald Trump’s new hotel in Washington.

SMS | Send Text Messages for Free

A lot of Filipinos, from all levels of the Philippine society, are becoming more and more text savvy by using internet hot spots (free wifi areas in the offices, certain government agencies and institutions, and schools and malls) to log in on Facebook and chat with friends (that is, if they are online). Even entrepreneurs and businessmen would love to save that load for more important matters, rather than replying short responses on day-to-day questions.

The other alternative using these hot spots is to visit websites that offer free text (SMS) messaging services. So, in which websites can one send text messages for free?

Here is a list I compiled of the top sites that provide free text (SMS) messaging services in the Philippines. Just so everyone is on the same page, Alexa (which will be mentioned below) is a site that analyzes traffic (visits) to these websites and ranks them accordingly.

Image Courtesy: Chikka
1. Chikka - this one is probably the oldest free text messaging service provider in the Philippines. It's also one of the most visited sites in the country, with an Alexa rank of 365th in PH.

2. AFreeSMS - I only got to know about this today, while I was surfing the web. It actually offers quite an easy way to send messages (and again, for free). It has an Alexa rank in the Philippines of 502nd.

3. MagTxt.biz - I am very familiar with this because I use this every time I have no load (haha). It's really reliable and I can repeatedly reply to the same number if needed. MagTxt ranks at 611 in the country.


There are actually a lot of websites that offer free text messaging service, but these three are the ones I recommend. As you can see, their PH rankings in Alexa prove that Pinoys really make use (emphasis on take advantage) of these service providers in order not to shell out so much for load, all income from which are just divided between Globe and Smart.

Sending a text to anyone for free in the Philippines has never been this easy. It's free and convenient to use. All one needs to do is just connect to a wifi hot spot and boom, you're free to text! Others prefer to use Viber or whatever app is available in the market.

PBB 737 | Ailah, Bailey, Ryan, Ylona, Zonia now up for eviction

On Pinoy Big Brother 737's second nomination night, five housemates were chosen and are now up for eviction.

They are Ailah Antopina, Bailey Thomas May, Ryan Bacalla, Ylona Garcia and Zonia Mejia. Who will be saved by the public?
















Pinoy Big Brother, in its 737 edition, gave the five (5) nominee housemates the chance to be saved from eviction through a LigTask challenge; sadly, none of them were able to pass the challenge, as both Ylona and Ailah got two points.


Which housemate will go out next? It can be recalled that 16-year old Barbie Imperial from Legazpi was the first to exit the Pinoy Big Brother house when she garnered less than 40% of public votes, vs the majority share scooped by 2nd-time nominee Bailey May.

FEATURE | Haiyan Unity Bracelet

I took this opportunity to ask and interview the head of a social enterprise which is continuously helping shape the lives of Yolanda survivors.. This social enterprise, the Haiyan Unity Bracelet, enables Yolanda mothers in a Tacloban community to augment their income and support their families after the onslaught of Yolanda, internationally named Haiyan. 

In this interview, Danika Astilla-Magoncia provides key details about the Haiyan Unity Bracelet.


How it all began

It actually started around 10 years ago. The designer, Danika Astilla-Magoncia (me), just graduated college and started exploring the use of jewelry wire, and eventually felt at home with copper wire. 
Image Courtesy: Haiyan Unity Bracelet
Around 5 years after a long-time friend, Niña Bañez-Cerdiña, came home from the States and both started talking about how to make Tacloban City a better place with the help of arts & music. The idea of social enterprise was born and we spent 5 years being inspired and scared (at the same time) of the idea until Yolanda happened. A week after the storm Niña called and we decided to make a go at the social enterprise. 
We launched a crowdfunding campaign on gofundme.com and was able to raise Php 135,000 and was able to receive a grant from the Service Employees’ International Union (SEIU) and used the money to train partner-workers from Brgy. Palanog, a highly depressed community in Tacloban City. 

 Copper as an art of living


Image Courtesy: Haiyan Unity Bracelet
The products, which sell for Php 300 and up (custom-made pieces), are made of copper wire, and we sometimes use wood beads, textile beads, and freshwater pearls. Mothers from Brgy. Palanog make the pieces. Our pieces are highly sustainable because copper wire is one of the most reused/recycled metal in the world, and we use recycled flour sacks as packaging. 
It helps the community because the partner-workers earn living wages from the pieces they make, plus they share the profits among themselves (they actually own the business).


Helping improve lives

Before sales are made, our partner-workers are already paid for the labor they used to make the pieces. But even if there are weeks without work (we have a lot of product on hand), the profits for the month are split among the workers.  
Right now they are better than before. The money they get helps with their children’s schooling, and also their personal “womanly” needs.

How and where to find the bracelets
We accept orders though Haiyan Unity Bracelet, at our cell number 0927 538 7638, at our e-mail kinamot2014@gmail.com, and @KinamotNgaBuhat (Twitter & Instagram).  
Image Courtesy: Haiyan Unity Bracelet
Our official consignees are in Tacloban City (Café Lucia, Libro Books & Café, Giuseppe’s Ristorante, Ayo Café, Bukid Outdoor Shop, Mortal Outdoor Shop, Yellow Doors Hostel, and nail Express), Cebu City (Handuraw Pizza in Gorordo Ave. & The Chillage), Manila (Neil & Neil Surf Co. in Intramuros, Golden Salakot in Ermita and through Mariel Impoc), the USA (Paul Kimball from New York), and Australia (through Kristoffer Ryan Diocampo). 
We are also looking for resellers and bulk buyers too.

EDUCATE | Need a scholarship or sponsor?

If you're an excellent student (high school or college) residing in Manila (sorry Manila city na muna) who needs a scholarship or a sponsor to help you with your education, you might just be at the right place.

You landed on this page because you searched Google with "scholarship or sponsor." I think I can help you with that, but I can't assure you ca give you one asap. I am using Spotlight Philippines to contribute to progress by helping students like you finish school. :) This is the "Sponsor a Student" project.

In the meantime, while I'm still looking for sponsors, I'd like you to check out this list of scholarship providers from all over the globe! Enjoy!



TO MANILA STUDENTS IN NEED OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT:
Please take note that matching a sponsor to a corresponding student may take time.

Please send a Word (.doc) file to spotlightphilippines(at)yahoo(dot)com(dot)ph stating:
a. student profile
   i. name
   ii. age
   iii. level of education (high school), degree (if applicable)
   iv. contact details
b. reason why you need financial support
c. school
   i. name of school
   ii. proof of grades
   iii. tuition needed
   iv. other expenses (budget for food, etc)
d. note that additional proof may be asked in the future

EDUCATE | Sponsor, donate, help a student in Manila

It has been almost five years since I created this blog to freely express my passion for writing. It has gone through the highs and lows, has experienced quite a lot of good following, and has been shut down for some periods in time due to my unavailability.

And here I am though, wandering through this blog. It's always been a proud moment for me to have created at least 1000 posts here. With that high number of posts, I attempted to use Google Adsense to make money out of it but honestly, it's been quite inefficient probably because I didn't know how to optimize keywords haha.. But there's more to this than just being an income-generating blog ('cause clearly it's but more of a hobby). 

It's a blog I can use to extend help and influence people. There's a lot more I can do using Spotlight Philippines. 

A lot of students in the Philippines are in need of financial support. With this, Spotlight Philippines is looking for kind sponsors, local or foreign, who have more than enough to offer help to those who keep burning the midnight oil, just to reach their dreams (well, that including me). 

In fact, I also need a sponsor for my schooling. So I said to myself why not extend this post's reach to everyone who'd like to help those students in need?

If you landed on this page, by searching on Google as you went out looking for somebody to help, then you might just be at the right place.



TO PROSPECT SPONSORS:
Help fund a student. Sponsor a student in Manila (priority area). Kindly submit your proposal and your terms to spotlightphilippines(at)yahoo(dot)com. (Email address was written that way to prevent bots from spamming me hehe; please interpret the address accordingly.)

What will be done is to match your proposal to that of the student who fits your profile.

The Word file proposal (in .doc format) may include any of the following.
a. sponsor details
   i. name and sex
   ii. nationality and age
   iii. residence
   iv. contact number
b. qualifications of student
   i. sex (male or female)
   ii. age (must be above 13 years old - for high school and college students)
   iii. preferred residence or area where student is studying
c. number of student/s you wish to support
d. per student, financial support
   i. preferred sponsorship provision (either by quarter or semester)
   ii. amount you wish to shoulder
e. your other requirement/s (terms, whether you need to meet student for updates, maintaining grade, etc)
f. reason why you wish to help
g. source of funding

TO MANILA STUDENTS IN NEED OF FINANCIAL SUPPORT:
We'll start with Manila first. Please take note that matching a sponsor to a corresponding student may take time.

Please send a Word (.doc) file to spotlightphilippines(at)yahoo(dot)com(dot)ph. stating:
a. student profile
   i. name
   ii. age
   iii. level of education (high school), degree (if applicable)
   iv. contact details
b. reason why you need financial support
c. school
   i. name of school
   ii. proof of grades
   iii. tuition needed
   iv. other expenses (budget for food, etc)
d. note that additional proof may be asked in the future

Spotlight Philippines would like to clarify some points:
a. It does not nor will not seek or accept any fee or commission.
b. It serves to links prospect sponsors to student scholars for free.
c. It may take time to find you a sponsor or a scholar because I just started this today. :)
d. Rest assured that all personal details will be kept confidential.
e. People who are kindhearted enough and are interested to join me in establishing this soon-to-be foundation may email me through the address I mentioned above.

It's quite embedded in the Filipino culture to remain humble and down-to-earth despite the riches and accomplishments achieved in life. But there are still those who tend to be outliers and beyond imaginable (I could literally throw up).

Netizens online have been angered by a post of an alleged doctor who took advantage of a delivery boy by intentionally tagging him late just to get a 200 Php discount.

In his Facebook account, Jay Be bragged about being able to eat a Champ burger, Jolly spaghetti, fries and choco sundae by intentionally not answering the receptionist call (when the delivery has arrived on time).

In another screen shot which has been circulating online, Jay Bee's wrong doing was publicized which placed the delivery boy in a hardship because it's possible he'll be shouldering the 200 pesos charge that was supposedly for delivering it late (which in this case, isn't).

This maleficent, cruel, insensitive act must be condemned!

FUNNY | Nancy Binay gets owned by Grace Poe

A video posted on Youtube several months ago shows how Senator Grace Poe owned Senator Nancy Binay in one of Senatorial committee meetings.

In the video, Senator Binay is caught off guard after apparently not listening during the meeting.

She asked. "Can I just request USec. Garcia to submit to the body as to what is the extent of the help of the Americans with regards to this operation."

Poe bluntly stunned Binay. "Well, apparently there is none."

"None?", the confused Binay responded.

USec. Garcia supported Poe, saying "The DFA has no information on the US participation in this operation, as I said."
