Keeping Children and Teens Safe Online : Online Best Practices by Trend Micro

The power of the Internet is measured by its ability to allow users to exchange valuable information and connect people from all over the world. Through simple search engines, users can easily access the content they need. On the other hand, social networking sites, like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, enable users to communicate, meet new friends, and share information with others locally and across the globe.

Although these sites have their advantages, they also expose users—including more than half of all Filipino kids and teens who own their own computers and mobile devices—to several risks. According to a recent Trend Micro poll conducted among Filipino parents, most if not all of them acknowledge the importance of online security. However, less than half (44%) of the respondents are confident in their ability to secure their families from online threats.

The online poll, which surveyed 442 respondents from the Philippines, further revealed that parents’ top online safety concerns are computer viruses and malware (92%), malicious websites (90%), and sites with inappropriate content like graphic violence and pornography (84%). As precautions, Filipino parents said that they protect their kids and families by installing antivirus software on their computers and mobile devices as well as regularly updating their security software.

Owning your dream house proves to be a challenge these days.

TV5’s ‘Jasmine’ Goes Beyond Television

The highly-anticipated TV5 series, ‘Jasmine’, is ready to give audiences an exciting new way to enjoy TV. It premieres on Sunday, June 1, at 9:15PM.

Breaking away from the traditional romance/drama genre, ‘Jasmine’ is a show full of mystery and suspense that blurs the lines between reality and fiction. It stars Jasmine Curtis Smith, who plays a fictional version of herself: an indie actress who is on the verge of becoming a mainstream celebrity. She faces the usual challenges in the show biz industry: failed relationships, rivalries, the pressure to win awards, and unsuccessful auditions. Amidst all this, Jasmine begins to receive mysterious messages from Maskara, an obsessed fan who is willing to do anything to make her happy—even if it means hurting everyone around her.
A creation of award-winning advertising agency Ace Saatchi & Saatchi, in partnership with Unitel and TV5,‘Jasmine’ brings the story to life 24/7 by also making its characters exist online—and in person.
One example is how supporting character Wendell Bautista, a famous entertainment blogger and friend of Jasmine’s on the show, has an actual blogFacebook Page, and Twitter and Instagram accounts—all of which are regularly updated. Wendell has even appeared in blogger and fan events to support Jasmine’s endeavors.

Fun With Philip, now in GMA 7

Lifestyle is simply a life lived in style. There are many styles, choices and preferences. Philip Abadicio wants to make sure that we all have fun while living our different lifestyles in his latest TV show, “Fun with Philip,” on GMA News TV every Saturday and Sunday from 3:00 to 3:30 p.m. starting on June 14, 2014. 

He was meant to be a lifestyler. After finishing college in U.P. Diliman, Philip and his pals setup Wild Life, a clothing store catering to cool high school and college kids. They used the heartthrobs and sweethearts of the top schools and this marketing strategy gave them sales beyond their expectations. The lifestyle editor of the Manila Times took notice of Wild Life and invited Philip to be a contributor.

The initial half page that he had to fill up would eventually be extended into 2 pages with various lifestyle news—food, fashion, parties, beautiful people, travel. The job opened doors and several lifestyle experiences for Philip. “My network expanded and I realized I really loved lifestyle news and coverage,” he shares.

Philip also interacted closely with the PR’s and publicity industry. He learned how PR is done effectively and opened RPA & Communicate, a PR agency specializing in lifestyle and society clients. “In the 90s and 2000’s lifestyle was mostly for the affluent, done in English and always featuring high-end products and services,” he relates. Things have changed since then.

In the age of reality TV, lifestyle is no longer just for the rich and those who can afford it. “I’ve always maintained that lifestyle should not just be aspirational but more importantly, it should inspire people to live their lives in style, no matter what circumstance you are in,” he explains.

After 2 seasons each of “It’s More Fun with Philip” and “Philip Lifestyle Guy,” the objective of making sure lifestyle is understood and appreciated by a wider audience has been started. In the latest offering, “Fun with Philip,” the agenda to help and entertain is pushed even further. Chosen letter senders will experience the food, beauty treatments, fitness regimen, etc. that are featured on the show. More than this, contests both on-air and online via will give viewers more chances of enjoying the lifestyle features on the show.

“Fun with Philip” is a show made for lifestylers. As they say on the show, “mga Kapusong Lifestylers, we will give you the surprises for you to win the prizes!” A segment called Kwentuhang Kumot, where Philip interviews a celebrity under the sheets as he or she reveals untold secrets, will be there. Philip will also bring the occasional American tourist, Jeffrey Whitney, around the Philippines so he will be obliged to speak Filipino and try the various food, culture and lifestyles.

Philip will be joined by his FunKicks, the sidekicks who will help provide more fun. They are Lucky Mercado as the arrogant, macho man in “Lucky Strikes”, Madam Venus roaming the streets of Metro Manila and letting people try various lifestyle elements as she suddenly reads their fortunes in “Larangan ng Kapalaran”, Bryan Santos is a real fitness coach and will be the conscience of the show after too much eating as the “Exercise Expert”, and Hilda Ehrenberg will be  the ditzy female model “Bru-Hilda”.

“The show will be a lot of fun while you learn something new and you can apply it in your lives plus, you just might win prizes too,” Philip says. “Fun with Philip” will not have a formula, so expect the unexpected.

“Fun with Philip” is produced by The Lifestylers Media, directed by Tootoots Leyesa and written by Rod Divinagracia. It will air on GMA News TV every Saturday and Sunday, from 3:00 to 3:30 p.m. starting on June 14, 2014.
