Glaiza, may limitasyon ang pagbibigay ng producer

IBANG kulay ang buhok ni Glaiza de Castro ang makikita sa kanya sa concert niya sa Music Museum on October 27, ang Kun(G)diman. Mala-pink ang kulay ng buhok ni Glaiza ngayon. Dahil pangunahing genre ng awitin ni Glaiza ay rock, panauhin niya ang local icon sa ganitong  music, Mike Hanopol.  Special guest din ang premyadong local rapper na si Gloc-9.
    
 Ani Glaiza: “Matagal ko nang  balak kulayan ang buhok ko bago pa man ako nagbakasyon sa South Korea noon. Nanggaling ako ng South Korea para mapanood ang lahat ng paborito kong K-Pop. Alam ko na –influence ako ng Korean pop culture dahil sobra akong belib sa mga artist nila. Well disciplined sila. Gusto ko ganoon din ako.
    
“Pero ang kulay ng buhok ko ngayon ay hanggang three months lang. Pinagbinigyan lang ako ng producer ng soap opera ko hanggang  January 2018.”
    
Sa halip na ordinaryong launching ng bagong album ni Glaiza entitled Magandang Simulain, distributed by PolyEast Records, ginawa nilang special concert ito para mas maraming fans ang makapanood.
    
Tribute ito ni Glaiza  sa lahat ng musicians all the way back thru the 70s ang concert  kaya naging title ang  Kun(G)diman.
    
Ani Glaiza: :”Sa panahon kasi ngayon all of us have our own issues to think about, sometimes we forget how truly blessed we are. So through my songs I want our elders to remember what it felt like noong  bata pa sila. ‘Yung pakiramdam ng walang problema at umasa sa mga kabataan.”
    
Ang Kun(G)diman concept  ay inspired sa traditional Filipino love songs, ang kundiman. Samantalang ang  bagong album ni Glaiza ay ipinakikita niya ang kakaibang jazzy, pero may pagka-folk ang vocals na mapapansin sa first single titled Sinta.
    
Kabilang  pa sa eight songs  ang apat na originals at limang paboritong awiting actress-singer. Ang iba pang awitin sa album na Magandang Simulain: London, Ganti, at Magandang Simulain (tatlong original songs bukod sa Sinta). Ang iba pang awitin:   Itanong Mo Sa Mga Bata (Asin), Dukha (Aegis), Ang Himig Nating (Juan dela Cruz band), at Bato Sa Buhangin (Cinderella).

Jak, over-protective kay Sanya  
    
KINA-CAREER  na ni Jak Roberto ang pagsubaybay sa Haplos. Ang dahilan, bantay sarado siya sa mga sexy scenes ng kapatid na si Sanya Lopez. Kinabahan si Jak sa swimming pool scene ni Sanya, pero mas ikinawindang niya ang sexy dance number ng kapatid. Feeling daw ni Jak ay nagiging masyadong daring na si Sanya.
    
Sa Instagram video ni Jak, pabiro nitong dinampot ang mga arnis na tila ipamamalo niya kay Sanya. Di naman masisisi si Jak na maging protective sa kapatid. Katungkulan niya ito pero hindi naman siya nakikialam sa career nito.
    
Xyrus, pinagsasabay ang dalawang hilig

SA kabila ng pagiging busy bilang Kapuso actor, tuloy pa rin ang training ni Xyrus Cruz bilang athlete ng Philippine Sports Commission para sa Team Karatedo. Iginugugol ni Xyrus ang umaga ng Monday, Tuesday at Friday sa training sa Karatedo sa ULTRA. Pinaghahandaan niya ang pagsali sa series of international tournaments sa abroad bago  dumating ang Asian Games sa Jakarta, Indonesia  next year.
    
Sa ngayon,   tuluy-tuloy  pa rin ang pag-attend niya  ng series of workshops under GMA Artist Center para sa mga katulad niyang baguhan sa network.  Bukod sa acting,  dadaan din siya  sa voice lessons, dancing at hosting workshops. May personality development workshops ding pagdadaanan ang actor. Ang schedule ni Xyrus ngayon ay naka-program sa dalawang pinagkakaabalahan niya: acting and sports.
    
Recently, lumabas si Xyrus  bilang isa sa anak ni Ai Ai delas Alas sa episode ng Magpakailanman kung saan kinakitaan siya g potential sa . drama.

Speedtest Global: PH internet improves in Sept

TO further improve internet service in the country, net providers appealed to the government to help fulfill the mission of telcos to have the Philippines included in the so-called “top performing countries.”

Last September, the Philippines was listed as one of the countries that improved their internet services.

According to the latest information released by popular internet speed test site Speedtest Global, internet speeds for both mobile and fixed broadband in the Philippines improved in September.

Average download speed for mobile rose to 11.95 Mbps in September from 10.47 Mbps in August and 8.18 Mbps in September last year, improving the country’s world ranking to 94th from 99th.

For fixed broadband, average download speed picked up to 13.41 Mbps in September from 13.29 Mbps in the previous month and 8.76 Mbps during the same period in 2016. This brought the Philippines world ranking to 88th from 91st.
    
“At these speeds, consumers can download a 1-hour and 40-minute long movie in less than 10 minutes,” Speedtest Global said.
    
As this developed, telcos urged the government to actively participate in improving the internet speed to finally place the Philippines in the list of the countries which have laudable service in the global net market.
    
They particularly cited the accountability of the government in their efforts to provide the Filipinos efficient and faster internet, especially the business sector which contributes much to the economic growth of the country.
    
Telcos admitted their infrastructure on thousands of islands in the country is not enough that’s why they are calling on the government to invest as support in the inadequacy of private investors.
    
“Higit sa lahat ay kailangan ang investment ng gobyerno sa pangangasiwa ng Information Technology tulad ng pagpasa ng mga batas upang mapagaan at mapabilis ang proseso ng paghahatid ng internet services sa mga pamayanan,” they said.
    
They stressed that at present, it takes about 25 permits spanning a period of eight months to get an approval to build one cell site from local government units.
    
“Pilipinas lang ang bansa na walang investment sa telco industry,” they added.

Illegal recruiters

ILLEGAL recruiters, like other evils of Philippine society – drug pushers, corrupt public servants, voter-buyers and other lawless elements – continue to worry well-meaning government officials and the Filipino people.

It is no wonder, therefore, that President Rodrigo R. Duterte has ordered the National Bureau of Investigation (NBI) and the Philippine National Police (PNP) to launch a massive crackdown against illegal recruiters.

“Human trafficking is a serious problem that transcends borders,” said the hard-hitting Duterte, adding that all Filipinos, including the ordinary people, “have a responsibility in making sure that this battle is won.”

He issued the directive during the simultaneous celebration of the anniversary of a public service TV program and the launch of the Anti-Trafficking OFW Movement in Pasay City Wednesday night.

The first Mindanaoan to occupy the top political post of the land, Duterte also claimed that when he was mayor of Davao City, he once issued a shoot-to-kill order against illegal recruiters.

“I cannot imagine human beings…being sold to the slave markets elsewhere and they are tied to the bondage of slavery for all of their lives – no longer connected with their families, totally lost,” he said.
    
At the same time, Duterte warned overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) to follow their host countries’ laws, rules and regulations.
    
He particularly cited illegal drug cases. “Sumunod kayo because kapag nasabit kayo ng mga ganun, hindi talaga ako makatulong (sa inyo). If at all, it would take time,” said Duterte.
    
Likewise, some quarters want the Duterte administration, which ends at 12 noon on June 30, 2022, to hit hard at vote-buying candidates, many of them local politicians, during elections.
    
It is public knowledge that the Philippines is teeming with corrupt, lazy, abusive, non-performing and incompetent local and barangay officials because of vote-buying.
    
Kagaya ng drug pushers at drug users, panahon na para i-tokhang na rin ang mga illegal recruiter at vote-buyer.

Justin Bieber fans harass rumored GF Paola Paulin

JUSTIN Bieber’s fans have a reason to say "Sorry."

The 23-year-old heartthrob is known to have one of the most passionate fan bases on social media, but the Beliebers are setting their sights on Justin’s rumored new girlfriend, actress Paola Paulin.

After being photographed leaving church with the Biebs last week, the "Ballers" actress' Instagram account has been flooded with hateful comments from over protective fans.

"I'm mad because my husband Justin is dating another girl. He is mine and I hate this girl," one fan wrote.

Others went on to comment on her posts with snake emojis and other derogatory words.

The Biebs is reportedly "smitten" with 26-year-old beauty Paola, and their romance got off to a quick start.
    
After meeting the Latina bombshell on Sept. 27, US Weekly reported he invited her to attend church with him later that day. They have allegedly gone on multiple "intimate" dinner dates since, including Hollywood hotspot Soho House, a source confirmed to Access Hollywood.
    
Despite the flurry of negative comments, Paola refuses to pay the haters any attention. Her latest Instagram post was this adorable selfie with A-list “Ballers” co-stars Dwayne Johnson and Karlee Eldridge.
    
This isn't the first time Justin’s fans have attacked one of his girlfriends on social media.
    
In August 2016, the "Purpose" singer threatened to privatize his Instagram account—and later deactivated it—after fans lashed out at then-girlfriend Sofia Richie.
    
"I'm gonna make my Instagram private if you guys don't stop the hate this is getting out of hand," he wrote after sharing a series of black-and-white photos with Sofia. "If you guys are really fans you wouldn't be so mean to people that I like."
