Believeing that spreading accurate , up-to-date information for the people to be duly armed against disease is a key area in the shared goal by PAE and Green Gross. To clarify, if not outright debunk, misconception about how the disease spreads and affects its victim is the first step taken by PAE and Green Cross.
The Philippine Association of Entomologists Inc. (PAE), the leading organization of insect experts in the country, has once again partnered with Green Cross, makers of Green Cross Insect Repellent Lotion, in disseminating information and promoting preventive measures to avoid the dreaded dengue disease. This mosquito-borne virus, an alarming health issue with a nationwide scale, has been an endemic presence in tropical countries such as the Philippines.
My children having a fever before was just an ordinary situation, but now a days; it’s a different story. When my children would have a fever, the first thing I would do was to have them test for dengue.Together with the common flu, typhoid, hepatitis, among others, dengue is up there in the list as one of the most dreaded diseases that moms worry their kids may contract. Unlike the other illnesses mentioned, dengue doesn’t have a vaccine that can provide immediate protection.
Prevalent in tropical countries such as the Philippines, dengue affects people differently. While others may stop at having flu-like symptoms such as high fever and muscle-and-joint pains and rash, others suffer life-threatening complications. A few succumb to Dengue Shock Syndrome, in which the patient’s white blood cells drop to a dangerous level, leading to internal bleeding. In some of these cases, dengue becomes fatal.
While it is true that all people, regardless of age, can be infected with dengue, statistics from the Department of Health’s National Epidemiology Center show that it is children and adolescents who are hit the hardest. Almost half of the dengue cases last year were from 5 to 14 years old age range.
Together with the women drivers in Las Piñas, we were given an education session in safer driving and car maintenance recently as part of a series of Goodyear Women With Drive workshops making their way around the Philippines to promote road safety. The event happened at the Goodyear Hi-Performance Center in Alabang last Oct. 1, 2013
The Goodyear Hi-Performance Center in Alabang played host to some two dozen female motorists who learned the basics of vehicle and tire care along with tips on responsible driving from the TRS Defensive Driving Academy. The session began with a discussion of vehicle parts that included fluids, electricals, belts, hoses, wipers and tires. A module on driving techniques for wet and dry weather and car maintenance basics then preceded a more practical session which found participants identifying under body parts, observing how engines work and changing tires.
After an exhaustive nationwide search that involved scouring hundreds of performance venues, visiting thousands of band sites and YouTube channels and immersing into the alternative music scene, five bands have been chosen from key regions of the country to battle it out for Converse Philippines’ “Get Loud.” A press con was held today at the FLARE Bar in Metrowalk Ortigas.
The Converse Get Loud campaign is a celebration of music, creativity and the talented Pinoy artists. Converse and music are inseparable. Converse, especially its iconic sneaker the Chuck Taylor All Star, has always been the sneaker of choice for many musicians as it is a badge of self-expression.
