Novuhair Supports Alopecia Areata Awareness in Celebrating Inner Strength
September marks the month-long commemoration of Alopeci((**a Areata awareness worldwide.

Alopecia areata is a condition when hair loss occur due to faults in the immune system attacking the hair follicles which results in partial or total loss of hair on the head and other parts of the body.

Leading this year’s celebration in the country is Alopecia Philippines, a group founded by singer and songwriter Abby Asistio in 2012. She has been championing the cause of empowering citizens with this condition.

Abby is no stranger to alopecia, having been diagnosed with alopecia areata since she was four years old. Abby’s decision to come out in public with her condition was a major turning point in her life.

It quickly caught on and Abby was overwhelmed by the response from netizens, with over a thousand photo contributions to date.

This paved the way for the beginnings of Alopecia Philippines. It aims to raise awareness about alopecia and correct common misconceptions and perceptions about it, provide encouragement to people afflicted with it, and create an online support community for them.

Inspired by Abby’s honesty and courage, men and women, kids and teens from different walks of life began sharing their own stories and struggles living with alopecia. What started out as a group of ten is now more than 300 members strong and its Facebook page – Alopecia Areata Awareness, draws followers from all over the world.

History of Papa John’s:

“In 1984, I gave up my prized ‘72 Z28 Camaro to pursue my dream of opening my own pizza restaurant.”

1991 – The 100th restaurant was opened in Clarksville, Tennessee.

Massive Growth

1994 – Papa John’s opened its 500th restaurant.

1999 – The 2000th restaurant opened and the company topped $1billion in system wide restaurant sales.

Where we are Today

Promoting reform in Philippine tennis, Mr. Randy Villanueva, PHILTA’s acting president, organized the Philippine Tennis Summit that gathered local stakeholders of tennis to discuss the present state of the industry and identified action plans towards its improvement.

Acting PhilTA President…

During the Philippine Tennis Summit on Tuesday morning, stakeholders, including tennis coaches, players, parents, sponsors, regional representatives and PhilTA officials, among others, along with members of the media, gathered at the Makati Sports Club where issues on Philippine tennis were brought forth. Villanueva, one of the individuals who spearheaded the gathering, presented the current state of Philippine tennis, citing the need to improve the country’s standing in international competitions, increase the number of tennis players in the country, and attract them to become members of the national tennis association that represents the International Tennis Federation in the Philippines, among others.

Mr. Villanueva laid down the plans for Philippine tennis, identifying a strategy that starts with changes within the existing organization, followed by milestones that will create funding and resources, enable extensive training programs, and make way for a consistent supply of high-caliber Filipino tennis players before reaching the ultimate goal of becoming a world-class tennis association. He elaborated that for him to consider the vision of becoming a world-class tennis association, the country should have at least two Olympians, at least two players in the top 100 of the ATP & WTA rankings, four junior players in the Top 100 of the ITF boys’ and girls’ categories, qualify for the Fed Cup World Group, and qualify for the Davis Cup World, all by 2024. 

Mr. Villanueva stressed that to be able to achieve all of these, there’s a need to change the current set-up of the current national tennis association to make way for positive changes specifically in making Philippine tennis inclusive to many. This will pave the way for more active memberships from tennis players, increase in pool of talents, and make the association more sustainable in terms of funding.

“There’s really a need to amend the organization if we are to become a world-class association. The association right now is being run by just 12 people who do not represent any Philippine tennis stakeholders, region or clubs. I think it’s very important that we make it more inclusive to everyone and encourage more participation from the whole Philippine tennis community,” said Villanueva.

One of those elated to hear Villanueva’s vision for Philippine tennis is sports patron and PhilTA chairman of the board, Jean Henri Lhuillier.

“It’s refreshing to have this Philippine Tennis Summit and hear the great plans of Villanueva to move forward Philippine tennis. As always, I’ll be here to support in whatever capacity I can to bring to fruition PhilTA’s plans,” said Lhuillier.

During the summit, Villanueva also advised that he initiated the event in an effort to uplift Philippine tennis and clarifies that he does not have any plans to run for the presidency in the organization’s next election and is just happy to be able to lay down the work for whoever will succeed him.

Verdict:

Been playing Tennis since I was High School back then and I can say that it’s a good sports everyone and specially for the kids who want’s  to have different kind of sports, but as you can see here in our beloved country  you have to prove yourself  by your own expense and if you are doing good in the kind of sport you have chosen and won a few medal then maybe the government will qualify you as a Philippine athlete otherwise you a re on your own.

I was surprise that the tennis has almost gone, but when you go to picc there are a lot of kids that playing tennis and even a instructor to instruct you on how to play tennis. Since this is the kind of sport that I have since high school and college there where also a time that I became an instructor to this sports and one of my students was a high school students and teachers in PNU. Other than that we keep on playing at PICC.

I can see bitterness to previous president than the acting president of PhilTA, since we are on the process of CHANGE it’s about time to accept that there will always be a better person or administration than before and we need to accept the fact that we do NEED change for a better  and brighter future to each and everyone of us.

I believe so, that there will always be sunshine after the dark storm, let us unite to bring back on what we believe in change.

GO GO GO PhilTA for a brighter future…

RALLYE DEUTSCHLAND (WRC): SÉBASTIEN OGIER’S 35TH WRC VICTORY

EXACTLY 189 DAYS SINCE HIS LAST SUCCESS IN SWEDEN, SÉBASTIEN OGIER (VW/MICHELIN) RETURNED TO THE TOP STEP OF A WRC PODIUM AFTER COLLECTING HIS SECOND STRAIGHT VICTORY IN GERMANY. HYUNDAI/MICHELIN’S DANI SORDO AND THIERRY NEUVILLE WERE SECOND AND THIRD, WHILE MICHELIN SCORED A ONE-TWO FINISH IN WRC2 WITH SKODA FACTORY DRIVERS LAPPI AND KOPECKY.

111

The ADAC Rallye Deutschland is sometimes referred to as the summer’s Rallye Monte-Carlo due to the complex tyre choices it frequently necessitates, and this year was no exception.

Tyre calls notably played a decisive role on Saturday when crews visited the narrow stages of Germany’s Saarland region and the notorious asphalt/concrete tracks of the Baumholder army ranges. Michelin’s crews ran every imaginable permutation of the H5 (hard) and S5 (soft) versions of the Pilot Sport in the changeable weather conditions.

Ogier (VW/Michelin) laid the foundations for his second Rallye Deutschland triumph on the Panzerplatte stages for which he chose a combination of S5s and H5s for the first visit, then S5s all-round for the afternoon’s repeat. The three-time world champion won both attempts at Panzerplatte Lange (40.80km) to conclude Day 2 with a safety margin of 33.4 seconds.

Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia went on to pocket their 35th world class victory and their third of the year to extend their lead at the top of the provisional points table. Meanwhile, the Volkswagen Polo R WRC (39 victories) has become the most successful car on Michelin rubber in the history of the FIA WRC.

The weekend produced a thrilling fight for second, third and fourth places. Early pace-setter Andreas Mikkelsen (VW/Michelin), Dani Sordo (Hyundai/Michelin) and Thierry Neuville (Hyundai/Michelin) were covered by just four seconds ahead of Sunday’s 60 kilometres of competitive action. The fastest time on SS15 promoted Sordo to second spot, while Neuville won SS16.

SS17 was cancelled, so the outcome was settled on the Power Stage (14.84km). Neuville was quickest again but his attempt to pass his Spanish team-mate failed by one-tenth of a second. Mikkelsen ended up fourth overall.

Ott Tanak’s late retirement on Saturday (Ford, alternator) handed fifth place to Hayden Paddon (Hyundai/Michelin) who was delayed by several errors early on. Mads Ostberg (Ford/Michelin) was sixth, ahead of WRC2 winner Esapekka Lappi who headed a one-two finish for Skoda Motorsport and Michelin. Jan Kopecky was second in the class, ahead of local hero Armin Kremer (Skoda) who was taking part in the event for the 16th time.

The first ‘clear’ asphalt round of the year claimed a number of victims. Jari-Matti Latvala (VW/Michelin, gearbox) and Eric Camilli (Ford/Michelin, accident) both lost big chunks of time, while Stéphane Lefebvre (Citroën/Michelin) had a big crash. Everyone at Michelin Motorsport wishes the Frenchman and his co-driver Gabin a speedy recovery.

WORLD-RENOWNED CALISTHENICS GURU HIT RICHARDS

WANTS TO INTRODUCE MORE FILIPINOS TO CALISTHENICS

CALISTHENICS OFFERS A COST-EFFECTIVE WAY OF TRAINING ATHLETES AND NON-ATHLETES ALIKE

clip_image002H

7 SEPTEMBER 2016 – MANILA: World-renowned calisthenics guru and celebrity trainer Hit Richards, who hails from New York City, wants to introduce more Filipinos to calisthenics. Calisthenics, an intense workout wherein one uses bodyweight and bodyweight movements, is currently very popular in other countries.

Hit Richards, who trains and handles clients from various cities such as New York, Paris and Moscow says, “I’ve been hearing good things about the Philippines, specially about its athletes. I’ve also read about the Olympic Silver medalist (Hidlyn Diaz). In my humble opinion, it is good to encourage young people to get into sports; and calisthenics in particular is one sport wherein you don’t need a lot of money to be fit. You also don’t need expensive equipment nor a gym membership. You can do calisthenics anywhere, in parks, your homes, gyms, etc. It is also one sport which can complement your training if you’re an athlete. So I want to bring calisthenics to the Philippines one of these days and encourage Filipinos to love the sport as much as I do.”

“I’ve also read somewhere that some athletes have difficulty training because of the lack of equipment. Maybe calisthenics can help, because all you need is to use your bodyweight to be able to get the results you want,” he says.

Richards, who has 15 international certifications from the International Fitness Professionals Association (IFPA) for personal training, started his business Calisthenics Kingz in 2007, way before the sport became popular in other countries. He counts among his list of prominent clients musician Busta Rhymes, NFL players such as Chad Ochocinco, and other A-list Hollywood actors.

“I’d like to bring the sport to the Philippines first and then to other parts of Asia as well. I do believe that given the climate and ease of training for calisthenics, that it is very easy for Filipinos to get to know this sport and eventually love this sport,” Richards said.

Hit Richards has also been featured in TV shows such as Inside Edition, and magazines such as Muscle & Fitness.

“The Philippines is my next big project where I plan to bring calisthenics. Given the opportunity, I would like to give trainings and certification classes so it can be taught to more people. It is simply the most practical way of staying fit,” he said.
