Appointments in the New Normal: Why Safety Protocols are Important

0

MANILA, Philippines – With governments around the world lifting quarantine restrictions, people everywhere are beginning to adjust to a world that has been significantly affected by COVID-19. As researchers continue to develop life-saving solutions to a global pandemic, civilians and businesses are looking at new alternatives that can safely fulfill consumer needs while stimulating the Philippine economy.

“Unfortunately, this COVID-19 health crisis will extend itself into a slowdown in the economy. Output, jobs, and incomes will be adversely affected,” says Anna Moncupa, founder of Keepr Storage PH.  “Negative growth typically happens during an economic downturn and this will cause consumers to curtail their expenses to conserve cash. Income is affected. Non-essential goods will not be bought and some may have difficulty paying bills. Consumers are adjusting to save money. We’re already seeing tenants leaving prime commercial spaces to keep their businesses afloat, even in the midst of the community quarantine.”

Understanding the Impact of COVID-19 on the Philippine Economy

The Philippines has seen tremendous growth in recent years, with many analysts regarding the country as having the fastest-growing economy in Southeast Asia. However, due to the effects of the coronavirus, economists are projecting a significant decline in our gross domestic product (GDP) at the end of 2020. This has led many experts to look at locally-owned businesses as a means of stabilizing the economy in the years to come. 

No Contact: How Local Businesses Can Stimulate Economic Growth in the New Normal

Since the start of Enhanced Community Quarantine, Filipinos within Metro Manila have complied with the rules established by the government. This has compelled numerous businesses to adapt to government mandate and consumer behavior through a no-contact policy that allows staff and essential personnel to safely interact with consumers. 

“We as consumers value our health more than anything during these times,” says Moncupa. “Having certain protocols in place has helped our business meet our customers’ demands and needs, without having to sacrifice our commitment to our clients. We are still able to deliver the same exceptional service. Already, we are seeing more and more businesses pivot to distance-enabled transactions, and we expect this to continue for quite a while, or at least until we have beaten the virus. I do hope that other businesses make it sustainable for both their employees and customers.”

Moncupa’s team at Keepr Storage PH regularly practices no-contact transactions through the implementation of basic guidelines:
  • Placement of delivery items in a dedicated space accessible to Storage Specialists to ensure proper social distancing.
  • The use of in-house bins that are custom designed to store and transport your possessions.
  • The use of facemasks and PPEs during pick-ups between customers and personnel.
  • The acquisition of the necessary permits from your local homeowner’s association or the building management. 
  •  Photographic documentation of your items before pick-up.

“Our current policies are not only centered on safety, it was structured with limited resources in mind,” adds Anna Moncupa. “With limited public transportation, Metro Manila has minimal workforce available at the moment. Having these contactless procedures when offering moving and storage gives our customers cost-efficient alternatives without them having to look for more manpower. They are able to move their items and solve space issues without having to be physically present during the quarantine period. Our system allows our customers to do everything they need to do, all via mobile app or web.”

The New Normal/GCQ: DOTr Released The Guidelines for Road Public Transport

0

As various areas in the country prepares to shift from Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) to General Community Quarantine (GCQ), the ‘NEW NORMAL’ DOTr has released the updated Public Transport Guidelines and Protocols. 

For public transportation in areas under GCQ, stringent sanitary measures have been set, and will be strictly enforced, such as:

. Wearing of face masks at all times

. Implementation of no-contact measures such as cashless payments. 

. Use of thermal scanners

. Availability of alcohol and sanitizers in Public Utility Vehicles (PUVs) 

. Disinfection of high-touch surfaces of vehicles

. Establishment of disinfection facilities in various public transport terminals

. Contact Tracing

There will be two phases to be executed for allowing the operation of the different modes of public transportation.

For the Phase 1 (covering June 1 to 21)

. Trains and bus augmentation, taxis, TNVS, shuttle services, Point-to-Point buses, and bicycles will be allowed to operate, with LIMITED PASSENGER CAPACITY.

. NO provincial buses will be allowed to enter Metro Manila.

. Tricycles will also be allowed, subject to the prior approval of the concerned LGU. 

For Phase 2 (covering June 22 to 30)

. Public Utility Buses (PUBs), Modern PUVs, and UV Express will already be allowed to operate, also with limited passenger capacity, along with the initial set of transport modes that were allowed to operate during Phase 1. 

The 1-meter social distance rule between persons will be strictly enforced inside ALL the PUVs and mass transport units, in adherence to health protocols. Just to ensure and monitor the limited capacity and passenger load of all the public transport vehicles.

The Use of Technology

The Modernization Initiatives will be implemented including an automatic fare collection system (AFCS) for cashless payment transactions, electronic toll collection, and GNSS/GPS. The DOTr will likewise vigorously pursue and promote online transactions in licensing, registration and other documentary requirements. 

This is set to be run in NCR starting on June 1,2020,Developed by Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board that will be adopted is the Public Transport Online Processing System. This system will allow transactions to be made online, except the publication and hearing of cases—which will make LTFRB services faster and accessible for all its stakeholders.

Other institutional changes which the DOTr will implement in the ‘NEW NORMAL’ transition, and they are as follows:

. Routes Rationalization for a more effective traffic management;

. Industry Consolidation, to make it more efficient and financially tenable for stakeholders;

. The use of shuttle services to prevent students and employees from contracting the virus, will also be encouraged;

. Promotion of the use of non-motorized transport or use of bicycles, to maintain physical distancing, provide environmental and health benefits and promote efficient road space use

In a GCQ setting, the DOTr is also set to adopt a system in EDSA where dedicated lanes will be set forth for buses. In addition, the transformation of EDSA will include designated lanes for Bikes, as well as the putting up of Pedestrian Crossing and Bus Boarding Areas in strategic places.

Home Workout Essentials as Following

0

Really want to work out? Your home can be your gym too!

You should not forget that ‘Health is Wealth’ So we have to take good care ourselves by doing workout and ofcourse eat healthy foods.

These list of gym equipments will help you sweat it out at your home- free of membership charge! Choose from these gears ( Dumbbells, Barbells, Yoga Mats, Pull Up Bar, Rings, Medicine Ball, Jump Rope, Kettle bells, and Plyo box ) in order for you to make a gym room at your comfort zone.

Home Workout Starter Pack

Essentials as following:

1. Dumbbells

Dumbbells can be used for weight training as well as full-body fitness. Using dumbbells can be a great way to workout at home or at the gym. … Dumbbells are especially effective, because as well as working the main muscles, they also require numerous stabilizing muscles to help out.

2. Yoga Mat

Photo by: google

Yoga mats (also called sticky mats) are used in most yoga classes to provide cushioning and traction. While you can usually rent a mat at a yoga studio, it’s a good idea to buy your own. It will pay for itself pretty quickly so you don’t have to wait and see if this yoga thing sticks before taking the plunge into mat ownership.

3. Resistance Band

A resistance band is an elastic band used for strength training. They are also commonly used in physical therapy, specifically by convalescents of muscular injuries, including cardiac rehab patients to allow slow rebuilding of strength.

4. Kettle Bell

Photo by: google

In most situations, kettlebells are used for increasing grip strength, or for performing specific movements that are designed to build strength and endurance in the lower back, legs, and shoulders. These movements include full body exercises like the swing, snatch, and the clean and jerk.

5. Bench Press 7-1

The bench press is a core fundamental exercise for developing upper body strength. You’re not only working your pectorals (chest), you are also working your anterior deltoids (front shoulders), triceps brachii, and latissimus dorsi (back).

6. Barbells

Photo by google

The barbell is the longer version of the dumbbell which is used for free weight training and competitive sports, such as powerlifting, Olympic weight lifting, and CrossFit. Many exercises can be done using the barbell, such as bicep curl, bench press, Olympic weightlifting, over head press, deadlift, and squat. Standard barbells are usually an estimated weight of 20 kilograms (44 lb). Many fitness categories use the barbell for different reasons, for example powerlifters use the barbell to perform compound exercise movements.

7. Pull Up Bar

The pull-up bar is completely free standing and has practically no give when completing pull-ups or chin-ups. One of the biggest advantages to building a freestanding pull-up bar like this one is that you can build it to whatever height you like. Also, unlike most gym equipment, it can easily disassembled and reassembled.

8. Rings

Designed specifically for strength and fitness workouts, each pair of Fitstream Rings comes with two extra-long straps, allowing you to hang the rings up to 8 feet below the attachment point.

9. Medicine Ball

Medicine balls develop coordination and balanceDoing exercises when off-balance helps to work deeper muscles, the ones that are vital to maintaining good posture. … This will develop your intermuscular coordination, build up your abs and lower back muscles, and burn more calories through using more muscle mass.

10. Jump Rope

What is jump rope good for? Jumping rope is a great calorie-burner. You’d have to run an eight-minute mile to work off more calories than you’d burn jumping rope. … “It strengthens the upper and lower body and burns a lot of calories in a short time, but other considerations will determine if it’s appropriate for an individual.”

11. Plyo Box

Beginners up to advanced exercisers benefit from these Life Fitness plyo boxes because they’re an excellent way to perform box jumps, box squats, squat lunges, incline and decline pushups without any hard edges or intimidating heights.

Where can you buy these gym equipments?

Good thing is! You can still buy a gym equipments for your home during the quarantine.

Many people now adays starting to build a small businesses like selling gym equipments thru online. You will see posts in different platforms in social media.

While building your own gym at home you are helping them at the same time by buying these gears thru their online business.

Myth busters

There are currently no drugs licensed for the treatment or prevention of COVID-19

Adding pepper to your soup or other meals DOES NOT prevent or cure COVID-19

COVID-19 IS NOT transmitted through houseflies

Spraying and introducing bleach or another disinfectant into your body WILL NOT protect you against COVID-19 and can be dangerous

Drinking methanol, ethanol or bleach DOES NOT prevent or cure COVID-19 and can be extremely dangerous

5G mobile networks DO NOT spread COVID-19

Exposing yourself to the sun or to temperatures higher than 25C degrees DOES NOT prevent the coronavirus disease (COVID-19)

You can recover from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19). Catching the new coronavirus DOES NOT mean you will have it for life. Most of the people who catch COVID-19 can recover and eliminate the virus from their bodies. If you catch the disease, make sure you treat your symptoms. If you have cough, fever, and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early – but call your health facility by telephone first. Most patients recover thanks to supportive care.

Being able to hold your breath for 10 seconds or more without coughing or feeling discomfort DOES NOT mean you are free from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) or any other lung disease.

Drinking alcohol does not protect you against COVID-19 and can be dangerous Frequent or excessive alcohol consumption can increase your risk of health problems. 

COVID-19 virus can be transmitted in areas with hot and humid climates

Cold weather and snow CANNOT kill the new coronavirus.

Taking a hot bath does not prevent the new coronavirus disease

The new coronavirus CANNOT be transmitted through mosquito bites.

Are hand dryers effective in killing the new coronavirus?

Ultra-violet (UV) lamps should not be used to disinfect hands or other areas of your skin

Thermal scanners CANNOT detect COVID-19. Thermal scanners are effective in detecting people who have a fever (i.e. have a higher than normal body temperature). They cannot detect people who are infected with COVID-19. There are many causes of fever. Call your healthcare provider if you need assistance or seek immediate medical care if you have fever and live in an area with malaria or dengue.

Do vaccines against pneumonia protect you against the new coronavirus?

Can regularly rinsing your nose with saline help prevent infection with the new coronavirus?

Can eating garlic help prevent infection with the new coronavirus?

Does the new coronavirus affect older people, or are younger people also susceptible?

Are antibiotics effective in preventing and treating the new coronavirus?

Are there any specific medicines to prevent or treat the new coronavirus?

Maxi-Peel Encourages the Community to ‘Keep Fighting’ As a Beautiful Tomorrow Awaits

0

Everyday, we battle with different challenges that life throws at us. This time, the battle is not one of those daily stumbling blocks, rather, a global health crisis that has altered life’s normalcy. During these challenging times, a call for encouragement and a message of gratitude may come a long way, especially to those who work in health care, food, freight, and finance services among many other industries. These frontline workers risk their lives to keep the community going and functional amid the pandemic. This time, the fight they’re trying to overcome is for the common and greater good, in order to wake up to a beautiful tomorrow, not only for themselves and their families but for the whole country.

With a mission to boost the morale of our frontline workers, Maxi-Peel took on the initiative to become the bridge between our modern heroes and their loved ones who they might not have seen over the past weeks or maybe even months. With an online video with a title that sheds hope on its own – “Gaganda Muli Ang Bukas” – they were able to reach individuals whose moms, dads, aunts, and even friends are continuously fighting for a better tomorrow through their unwavering commitment and service as frontliners. This offered an opportunity for these people, who are close to the hearts of our frontliners, to send them messages and reminders to take a rest when they can, to also look out for themselves, and also to express how much they are missed. But moreover, through a short speech, these loved ones were able to share the pride and happiness of knowing that their family member is able to help a significant amount of those who are in need.

Hope has always been something that Maxi-Peel believed in, and just like our brave frontline workers and their families who remain strong as they keep fighting, Maxi-Peel also urges us to not give up, reminding us na dapat #WagMongIsukoAngLaban, a message they stand for that has inspired women across the Philippines, which now they hope inspires the entire country. They understand that a simple push for encouragement may affect the lives of many in a positive way and they have taken this chance to cheer on every single one of us facing this battle to continue to fight, as we, as a nation come together to rise above the situation and welcome a beautiful tomorrow that awaits.

Santé Barley TriTeam Represents Biggest Philippine Team Contingent at Vega IRONMAN World Championship

0

Pasig City, Philippines—May 4,2020— Santé Barley TriTeam, the official triathlon team of Santé, takes on another exciting challenge as its members officially qualify for this year’s Vega IRONMAN World Championship in Kona, Hawaii, USA, slated on October 10. 

The Santé Barley Tri-Team is one of the Philippines’ biggest team contingent with four qualifiers. The team will be composed of kick-ass triathletes, Team Captain Robert Jonah Rivera, David Richmond, Jethro Karl Ramos, and Retzel Orquiza—all are not neophytes in triathlon and IRONMAN races. 

“Races like the IRONMAN World Championships are the reason why we train hard. We are proud to represent Santé Barley TriTeam in such a prestigious race. We will give our all to bring honor not just for the team but also for our country,” Robert Rivera said, team captain of Santé Barley Tri-Team said.

The team has recently won top awards at two major triathlon races in the country, the National Age Group Triathlon Race 2020 last January and the Apollo Petroleum Jelly TRI 2020 last February, both held at Subic Bay, Olongapo. The international scene, on the other hand, would be different, especially that the Vega IRONMAN World Championship is considered as one of the most challenging triathlons across the globe. 

The IRONMAN World Championship centers on the dedication and courage exhibited by participants who demonstrate the IRONMAN mantra that “anything is possible.” It is originally held in Waikiki before moving to Kona on the island of Hawaii. 

On October 10th, over 2,000 athletes will embark on a 140.6-mile journey that presents the ultimate test of body, mind, and spirit to earn the title of IRONMAN. It will test triathletes to race through a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike, then a 26.2-mile marathon, while on the black lava rocks dominating the panorama, battling the 45mph, 95-degree “ho’omumuku” crosswinds, and the scorching sun.

“Santé Barley TriTeam is given another opportunity to showcase its members’ abilities in an international race. We are proud of this another achievement. The whole Santé family is ready to show our support to the qualifiers as they take on this challenge,” Joey Marcelo, Chief Executive Officer of Santé, and Santé Barley team owner, said.

Marcelo, a triathlon enthusiast and an IRONMAN finisher himself, created the Santé Barley TriTeam in 2012 in line with the company’s mission to help people lead healthier lives so they can live more and do more. To date, Santé Barley Tri-team is comprised of over 30 competitive triathletes.
