SOLANE PROMOTES FILIPINO VALUES - DAPAT LANG!

Since i was born and even if i wasn't been born one of Filipino's means of cooking is Solane from then on to up to now. For me whats important when looking for a gas to use in our home is of course good quality, safe and health wise. There are a lot that promisses different things but sometimes you really have to look for something that you can say "Dapat Lang" because it's your choice..

The country’s leading LPG provider has launched a campaign that advocates positive Filipino values and emphasizes the importance of family. 
“As we prepare for the many changes happening in our environment, we at ISLA LPG would like to remind everyone of the Filipino values that define us as a people and to put importance on the family, being a good neighbor and a valuable member of society. Our new campaign reminds all of us our consumers, employees, and business partners to do the right thing in everything we do, all the time, wherever we are, in order to truly bring out positive change in all of us. We value our consumers’ safety and we ensure that it is our key priority. We also value our customers’ trust by providing excellent products and services that are well worth their family’s hard-earned money.
~Ruben Domingo, ILC-CEO 

A the country gears up for change, ISLA LPG Corporation (lLC), the leading LPG solutions company and owner of the brand Solane, launches an advocacy campaign that aims to remind consumers of the importance of family and positive Filipino values. Drawing inspiration from the popular Filipino expression, which in English means, “That’s how it should be... Rightly so,” ISLA LPG launches the "DAPAT LANG" campaign a program that emphasizes the importance of doing the right thing, for the family, for others and society as a whole. The campaign also touches on the importance of bringing back traditional Filipino values which have somehow been misplaced in our high-technology, fast—paced, modern setting. These values include commitment to the family, honesty, hard work, respect for others, and integrity. 

The advocacy campaign will be communicated with various mediums print and radio ads, social media, and online videos, showcasing a mom cooking the best dishes for her family, an employee putting in ample time at work, a chef preparing high-quality ingredients for his customers, a manager catering to the needs of the client, the Solane Hatid Bahay rider ensuring that LPG delivery is safe and on time. 

As part of the Dapat Lang campaign, ISLA LPG is also launching a new website, which outlines the various ways with which Solane stakeholders can live out the new Campaign principle in their everyday lives. The newly revamped site also features ablog thatwill serve‘as a way for ISLA LPG to communicate directly with its consumers, especially moms. The blog will feature quick and easy recipes and helpful and time saving tips on cooking for the family, keeping a safe environment at work and home, and more.
For its part, ISLA LPG lives out the Dapat Lang campaign by doing what it does best since the brand Solane was launched almost five years ago — provide consumers with high-quality, safe, reliable LPG products.   

Moreover, ISLA LPG offers Solane Hatid-Bahay Service, an exclusive service provided to Solane LPG residential customers.  ISLA LPG’s well-trained riders conduct a Weight Check in front of customers using calibrated portable weighing scales, assuring households of value for their money. The Solane Hatid-Bahay riders also perform the 7-Point Safety Check free of charge to help ensure ensure the safety of consumers and their families. This includes checking the surroundings, o-ring, regulator, regulator and valve connection, hose, hose connection, and flame quality.

Furthermore, ISLA LPG holds regular safety seminars for its customers as well as to various communities nationwide. The company’s employees and contractors follow strict compliance of safe LPG handling and fire safety. Through this, ISLA LPG has achieved a significant milestone of 13 million man hours without lost time injury.

This commitment to provide the best and safe product and service is, needless to say, reinforced with the launch of the company’s new advocacy campaign because as they say, Kapag LPG, Dapat Lang Solane!

Dealing with Debt and its purpose in our life

A lot of us take advantage of the use of "Debt" we even overuse it and forgetting that dealing with money issues can sometimes be unrewarding after it is has been used... the next thing we know we are in deep debt.

I had my fare share of debt moments actually up to now i have a small amount of debt, may it be a small amount of big one it's still debt.

I'm in my mid 30's and of course I expected to have my own house, business and a good bank account... BUT, I am not happy about it at this moment of my life yet. I am such an ambitious and realistic person at my age but during my 20's i am just a dreamer. 

I once borrowed money for a certain "Networking" business and yes it did not work. What had worked is my debt that continues to add up % to the actual amount i borrowed, it took me a few months to finally settle it and can breathe freely. But i did not regret borrowing money and be in debt because i know for once i used the borrowed money for business and it's not my debts fault if it did not prosper.  

Money is a taboo. Just like what Sir Araya said, debt has its own good and bad. Before you borrow money, it's important to make sure you will be able to repayment, otherwise you could end up in a hard debt that could lead you to sell your properties and investment and worse it could put you in jail. Borrow only what you can pay and it should be in a useful purpose. I'm the type of person who spend less than what i earn, being the eldest because id rather prepare for emergency needs and unexpected needs in the house. I don't indulge myself to fancy jewelries or bags and shoes, I don't even buy expensive gadgets and eat on a fancy restaurants. I know how hard earning money is that's why i had this attitude of i should spend it wisely and useful.
“You must gain control over your money or the lack of it will forever control you.” ~Dave Ramsey
I had also let someone borrowed money from me for a friend whose in badly need, I know the feeling of borrowing the felling of being ashamed of how to say the word "Pautang" because the person I'm borrowing from will automatically ask "Kelan ka magbabayad"? So from the experience alone i am easily convinced of the reason why a person is borrowing, however the question really relies from is the reason true and when will that person repay me. Because the hardest part is when I need the money already I'm having hard time getting it back.

If i could borrow money again I would want to make good use of it for business purpose so that i can have means to repay it. I want to encourage myself in paying my debt whenever i borrow and recognize the importance of saving money for my future.
What can be added to the happiness of a man who is in health, out of debt, and has a clear conscience? ~Adam Smith
Take action on your debt problems today and take away the stress and worry it gives you thinking and carrying it.

UNMASKING YOUR THYROID

To raise awareness of thyroid disorder, Merck Inc. 
held a bloggers event at the Holiday Inn Makati.

Makati City, Philippines, 21 September 2016 - Did you know that according to a study by the Philippine Society of Endocrinology, Diabetes and Metabolism in 2012, one in 11 Filipino adults has goiter, and around one in 12 Filipino adults suffers from some form of thyroid disorders?
It was a great opportunity to be invited on the event because i get to understand and had more knowledge about Thyroid. A very helpful talk since i knew only few about thyroid because i was once told the last time i had a check up concerning my reflux that if I wont take precautions i might have a thyroid, I'm glad i asked Dr. Nemecio Nicodemus, Jr. about it and he said NO it isn't true. Wow that feeling of scaredness made me breathe and be at peace.

Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located in your neck—below and behind your Adam's apple. A healthy thyroid typically weighs about one ounce. The thyroid's function is to produce thyroid hormone which is essential for all your body's functions.

Your thyroid gland is the main organ in the body that can absorb iodine. The thyroid takes iodine from your diet and converts it into thyroid hormones.

Dr. Nemencio Nicodemus, Jr., who is the President of the Philippine Society of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism, as well as a Professor in the UP College of Medicine and the Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health, gave an informative talk on what the thyroid is, as well as the symptoms of thyroid disease.
Thyroid disease is one of the most common, yet misunderstood and overlooked condition. Women make up the majority of thyroid patients. And unfortunately, people who have a thyroid problem but are not yet diagnosed make up the majority of thyroid patients.
Millions of Filipinos are affected by problems with their thyroid, yet awareness of this disease is very low. The symptoms of thyroid disorders are often mistaken for other diseases, or worse, are ignored by patients with the disease.

Different Thyroid Conditions

Hypothyroidism
The most common thyroid condition is hypothyroidism, which refers to a condition where you do not have enough thyroid hormone. It has a number of causes:
  • Hashimoto's thyroiditis - an autoimmune condition that causes impairment or destruction of the thyroid gland.
  • Post-surgical hypothyroidism - after all or part of the thyroid gland has been surgically removed.
  • Post-ablation hypothyroidism - results after radioactive iodine treatment (RAI) used for thyroid cancer, Graves' disease, and in some cases of hypothyroidism and nodules.
  • Congenital hypothyroidism - when a baby is born without a thyroid gland or with a malformed gland that is not capable of producing enough thyroid hormone.
  • Iodine-deficiency hypothyroidism - due to a deficiency of iodine in the diet.
  • Drug and supplement-induced hypothyroidism - prescription medications and supplements that have the ability to cause hypothyroidism.
  • Goitrogen-induced hypothyroidism - very high consumption of raw goitrogens—foods that have chemicals in them that slow the thyroid. 
  • Secondary/central hypothyroidism - due to a defect in the functioning/communications of the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus.
  • Traumatic hypothyroidism - serious trauma to the neck, such as whiplash or breaking the neck, has been linked to the onset of hypothyroidism.
  • Hypothyroidism of unknown origin/idiopathic hypothyroidism - there are cases where the thyroid becomes underactive and no other underlying causes or diseases have been identified.

Hyperthyroidism
This refers to a condition where the thyroid gland is overproducing thyroid hormone. It also has a number of causes:
  • Autoimmune Graves' disease - the most common cause of hyperthyroidism.
  • Autoimmune Hashimoto's disease - sometimes causes periods of temporary hyperthyroidism.
  • Iodine-excess hyperthyroidism - results from overexposure or overconsumption of iodine.
  • Drug and supplement-induced hyperthyroidism - results from several prescription drugs as well as certain over-the-counter supplements.
  • Toxic multinodular disease - a condition that frequently causes overproduction of thyroid hormone.
  • Thyroiditis - certain forms can cause periods of hyperthyroidism.
  • Pituitary-induced hyperthyroidism - where the thyroid gland can become overstimulated by the pituitary gland and produce excessive amounts of thyroid hormone.
  • Thyroid nodules - in some cases they can trigger overactivity of the surrounding thyroid gland, causing hyperthyroidism. They can also, on their own, produce thyroid hormone.


The key risk factors for thyroid disease include:
Iodine deficiency or excess
Exposure to radioactivity or radioactive fallout 
Overconsumption of soy and goitrogenic foods 
Surgery or trauma to the neck area 
Pregnancy or recent childbirth 
Female gender
Personal or family history of autoimmune disease 
Cigarette smoking

Patients with hypothyroidism, or too little thyroid hormone, tend to have slower metabolism: they gain weight despite not eating much, move and speak slowly, feel tired and have depressed thoughts, cannot tolerate cold, and have irregular menstrual periods. On the other hand, patients with hyperthyroidism, or too much thyroid hormone, will have hyperactive metabolism: they lose weight despite having good appetite, have heart palpitations, irritable thoughts and insomnia, have sweating and heat intolerance, and can have tremors in their hands.

More information can be found online in the website www.thyroid.ph. This is an online repository of information where people can learn more about thyroid disorders. The website also contains useful guides which can help people check themselves for symptoms of thyroid disorders, such as goiter, hyperthyroidism, or hypothyroidism.

It combines the amino acid tyrosine and iodine to make the thyroid hormone. The two key hormones produced by the thyroid are thyroxine—known as T4—and triiodothyronine—known as T3. These hormones' key purpose is to regulate how your cells, organs, tissues, and glands use oxygen and energy.

Everything in your body relies on thyroid hormone—including digestion, the growth of your hair and nails, your sex drive, and the function of your organs and glands. Your brain, heart, and metabolism are especially dependent on the right levels of thyroid hormone to function properly and well.

The thyroid operates in a feedback loop with your pituitary gland.

There are a lot of people who may have thyroid disorders, but aren’t even aware until it is too late. It is important to have one’s thyroid checked as early as possible, especially if there is family history of the disease, or during pregnancy. Prevention, proper information and early detection will always be better than cure that comes too late.

If you're diagnosed with a chronic health problem, it can be confusing and frightening. One of the key elements of being a thyroid patient is staying informed. That means reading and researching about it, and connecting with others who can share their advice. Even if you feel like you're fighting with thyroid cancer or so, don't give up! Millions of people are living well with thyroid conditions and you too can be one of those success stories. With the help of the Lord there's no powerful cure than his mercy.
