Light Network goes Digital!

By: Dyan Delos Reyes

Light Network channel 33 is achieving greater innovation as it begins its official broadcast on Digital Television this coming March 2017! Through this exciting breakthrough, viewers in Mega Manila will soon be able to experience a clearer and highly-improved video and sound quality of Light Network in their televisions. Once official broadcast begins, people can now watch Light Network anytime and anywhere because not only will the channel be available on digital boxes and digital-ready televisions, but it could also be accessed through handheld devices such as tablets, smartphones and other gadgets.

The “digitalization” is the process of converting our current Analog Television broadcasting into Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), which simply means that our existing television technology will be transformed into an upgraded, higher quality of broadcast system. Through this digital improvement, Light Network will soon be available on multiple digital viewing platforms—broadening its horizon among the television programming sphere.

In an interview with Engr. Antonio Soriano, the Vice President of Technical Operations for Light Network, he said that he is excited for the upcoming Digitalization of Light Network, because the channel had long since been prepared for this huge digital switchover. “Tayo ang unang nag-convert from Analog to Digital transmitter. Wala nang test -broadcast. Official broadcast na agad.” He also said that not all channels are ready to make the digital “switch”, making Light Network the first channel in the Philippines to migrate to the exciting domain of Digital TV, while maintaining its frequency on Channel 33.

According to the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), once the innovative technology of Digitalization is fully implemented, it would not only deliver better image and sound quality to our television channels, but it would also be able to provide features such as datacasting, multi-channel platform, One Seg, and most importantly, the Emergency Warning Broadcast System (EWBS), which is used to transmit nationwide warning announcements in times of earthquakes, tsunamis, or other high-alert disasters.

Engr. Antonio Soriano further stated that these features are just few of the many benefits of Digital TV. According to him, through the other upcoming advancements in Digitalization, television will finally regain its essential standing in the lives of people, as compared to the rising media usage for mobile devices. “Yes. Maibabalik ang TV bilang prime Media tool,” he concluded.

Light Network, nasa Digital TV na!

Ang Light Network Channel 33 ay mas pinalaki at pinalawak dahil mapanood na ito sa Digital TV magmula Marso 2017! Kapana-panabik ang pagbabagong ito dahil ang mga viewers ng Mega Manila ay makakaranas ng mas pinalinaw at mas pina-husay na kalidad ng video at audio ng Light Network sa kanilang mga TV. Sa simula ng pag-digital broadcast nito, mapapanood na ang Light Network kahit saan at kahit kailan dahil magiging available na ang channel sa digital boxes, digital-ready TV, at pati na rin sa mga handheld devices kagaya ng tablets, smartphones, at iba pang gadgets.

Ang “digitalization” ay ang proseso kung saan cino-convert ang Analog TV para maging Digital Terrestrial Television(DTT). Sa madaling salita, ang kasalukuyang TV technology na meron tayo sa Pilipinas ay binabago at at pinapahusay upang maging mas malawak, mas malinaw, at mas maganda ang kalidad ng mga channel. Sa pamamagitan ng transpormasyon na ito, ang Light Network ay magiging available na sa mas maraming platforms—at tunay na mapapalawak ang saklaw nito sa mundo ng television programming.

Sa isang panayam kay Engr. Antonio Soriano, ang Bise Presidente ng Technical Operations para sa Light Network, sinabi nyang nagagalak sya sa papalapit na Digitalization ng Light Network, sapagkat matagal na itong napaghandaan ng channel. “Tayo ang unang nag-convert from Analog to Digital transmitter. Wala nang test -broadcast. Official broadcast na agad.” Sinabi rin nya na hindi pa lahat ng TV network ay handa sa pagbabagong ilulunsad ng Digitalization, kaya ang Light Network ay ang naunang channel na makakaranas ng kapana-panabik na migrasyon sa Digital TV, at sa Channel 33 pa rin mananatili ang frequency nito.

Ayon sa National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), sa pamamagitan ng bagong teknolohiya ng Digitalization, hindi lang gaganda ang kalidad ng mga channel na mapapanood natin sa TV, kundi ito rin ay maghahandog ng ibang features kagaya ng datacasting, multi-channel platform, One Seg, at ang importanteng Emergency Warning Broadcast System(EWBS), na ginagamit upang alertuhin ang bansa kapag mayroong sakuna kagaya ng mga tsunami, lindol, bagyo at iba pa.

Ipinahayag ni Engr. Antonio Soirano na ilan lang ang mga ito sa marami pang parating na benepisyo ng Digital TV. Ayon sa kanya, dahil sa kagandahang ilulunsad ng Digitalization sa bansa, muling mapapahalagahan ang silbi ng telebisyon sa buhay ng mga Pilipino, kumpara sa kanilang paggamit sa mga handheld devices. “Yes. Maibabalik ang TV bilang prime Media tool,” ani nya.

A Stylish Destination for the Male Grooming Generation

With pompadours on the rise, man-buns making its way on the street, perfectly trimmed beards and facial hair making an appearance…it’s safe to say that male grooming is finally getting the attention it deserves.

But while men will admittedly make more effort by way of aesthetics, the process of getting the right look still prompts them to demand the simplicity and straightforwardness of traditional barbershops.

“Most women like being whisked away to a secluded world of pampering for their beauty treatments; most men will expect an efficient and clear-cut service—but not at the expense of style,” explains Ramon De Ubago III, CEO of Sports Barbers.

This gave way to a new breed of barbershops—one that delivers the kind of service that they expect that essentially gives a modern take on an old classic. And while there have been a few cropping up here and there, none have been more accessible or as successful in providing the stylish sense that today’s grooming generation seeks than Sports Barbers.

With 12 branches nationwide, it recently unveiled another milestone as it opened its 12th branch in SM North Edsa last December 2016. This place recreates the traditional concept of your go-to neighborhood barbershop and offers a destination.

Its ambience and service, strongly anchored on its team’s ability to provide everything from on-trend cuts to classic styles, is a compelling reminder of inherent masculine values—adventure, straightforwardness, humor and at the end of the day, natural good looks (as opposed to self-conscious preening).

Image may contain: text

The entire concept of Sports Barbers is to deliver the best cuts for clients, inspired by traditional hairstyles and the most stylish men. The brand’s crop of barber-stylists, a term derived from the fusion of Vidal Sassoon trained cutting and styling mixed with the efficient sensibilities of old-school barbers, mean clients can confidently step into any branch and emerge looking as dapper as they can be.

“The idea is to create a go-to destination for men where they can expect the reliable, time-honored techniques of traditional barbering and yet know they are in the hand of people who will be able to tell the difference between a short sides with brush top versus buzz crop or a pompadour versus a slick back,” ends De Ubago.

Evia Lifestyle Center, the south’s premiere lifestyle shopping and dining mecca, just added a new dimension to its approach to modern mall-going by opening an exciting new hub for inventive breakthroughs and learning – The University of the Philippines @LabInnovation Hub.

The family of Vista Land Chairman Manny Villar and Senator Cynthia Villar, along with officers from the University of the Philippines (UP) recently launched this new Innovation Zone as the first phase of development for the upcoming UP Alabang Campus in Vista Alabang. 

Evia Lifestyle Center currently houses this groundbreaking Innovation Zone and Incubator Hub that will, in the words of former Senate President Villar, assert UP’s role as “the most dynamic University and the leader in education in the country”. The hub, nicknamed UP @Lab (a play on words that simultaneously mean “ablaze <alab>, a futuristic hub <@Lab> and its location <ALABang>) is designed to be the first spark that will initiate the academe and industry partnerships that UP aims to create by putting up a campus in Alabang. 

“UP @Lab is a dream brought to life by the Villars for UP’s student-locators because it brings us closer to accessing industry funding that makes our inventions and ideas a reality”, said Dr. Luis Sison, Project Leader of Diliman-based DOST-UP Enterprise and Innovation Hub.

“This first building block of UP Alabang allows us to solve issues that plague fledging start-ups, such as limited access to industry and business expertise that have hindered the progress of technology innovation and development in the country”, said Dr. Aura Matias, former Dean of the UP College of Engineering. “True to its name, UP @Lab shines as a beacon of hope for technology development in our country”, she added. 

UP @Lab is located in Level B1 of the Evia Lifestyle Center. It is a fully-equipped innovation hub complete with four start-up offices, two meeting rooms, and an open workspace area for visiting locators. The hub will be run by the same team behind UP Diliman’s DOST-UP Enterprise Center as a starting point for eventual operations in UP

The new UP Alabang campus in Vista Alabang’s upcoming University Town, will house two new tech-driven centers for innovation for the country’s premier university – the UP School of Technology Entrepreneurship, and the UP Alabang Enterprise Center. The campus complex will be co-developed by UP and Vista Land as part of a donation and development agreement signed last June by university officials and the Villar Family. The Villars donated five hectares of land in the upcoming University Town of Vista Land’s “communicity” development Vista Alabang in Daang Hari. The agreement also includes a donation of PHP 300M worth of buildings and equipment to be used in the creation of the campus. 

Aside from becoming the latest education hub, Evia Lifestyle Center continues to provide an impressive array of choices for shopping at Vista Group’s concept stores – AllElectrics and AllToys, global fashion brands like H&M and Uniqlo, local favorite go-to stores like Bench and Bayo and shoe stores such as Res Toe Run and Payless ShoeSource. Various dining options are also available at favorite resto brands located at the Piazza like Mama Lou’s, Merlion Cuisine, Mesa, and TGI Fridays. Shoppers can also enjoy a unique dining experience at Another Story, a place that transports one to the realm of imagination and make-believe. Evia Lifestyle Center is also home to Vista Cinemas, which boasts of its MX4D and Dolby ATMOS technologies, and its state-of-the-art VIP Theater.

White Chicken…

Posted: 02/08/2017 in LifeStyle

Have you tried white cut chicken?

 

Filipinos are chicken lovers with all the lechon manok stalls, inasal restaurants and breaded fried chicken offered in burger fastfoods here and there. But other than these brown coated meat usually eaten with gravy or sauce, there is also the so-called white cut chicken commonly served in traditional Chinese restaurants. And they are as mouth-watering as the roast or fried versions.

The difference between white cut chicken and other chicken recipes is obviously the color. White cut chicken got its name from its white chicken skin produced through a different but easy cooking method. A whole dressed chicken is marinated in salt and dipped in hot water for 30 minutes to cook. To make it, water is heated and then the fire is turned off when it starts to boil.

Such cooking process leaves the chicken’s skin light-colored or white and its meat tender, moist and flavorful. The whole chicken is then sliced and served with garnish like cilantro, leeks or ginger and a sauce of mixed minced ginger, green onion, salt and hot peanut oil. It can also be dipped in soy sauce, oyster sauce, or chili pepper sauce. The different Chinese restaurants have their own style of serving this tasty dish.
