A visit to Holistic Integrative Care Center widens one's outlook on the integration of conventional medicine and ancient healing capabilities of natural medicine. It adheres to Hippocrates " Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food."

HICC is " Healing that Cares " The 8 greatest doctors are: NUTRITION - which should be practice everyday. EXERCISE. WATER since our body is compose of 70% of it. SUNLIGHT- which sustain the cycle of living things. TEMPERANCE - using good things in moderation. AIR - proper breathing and fresh air. REST - it allows the regeneration of body cells and trust in DIVINE POWER that is connected to wellness.

NUTRIMENT is the department of HICC that promotes healing through food nutrition. A journey with Chef Arlene A. Clemente a holistic chef in a workshop of food preparation of plant based diet.

Green Smoothie was prepared for the attendees it is a concoction of kangkong, pechay, saba, ginger, turmeric, water snd sweet pineapple blended together. Such an energizing full pack meal drink should be taken right away to avoid oxidation.

Different dishes was prepared with organic vegetables and fruits. Soaking the vegetables in water with 2 tbsp of apple cider vinegar or salt for 10-15 minutes then rinse and drain is also recommended.

Asian Seaweed Salad was my favorite the mixture of fresh bell pepper, onion leeks, carrot, purple cabbage, pumpkin seeds, seaweeds and vinegrette burst your taste buds to the nutitious and delicious servings.

The miso soup was just right to the taking since it is not salty at all, with the ready to eat tofu added with seaweeds.

Our last dish was Futo Maki wherein Chef
emphasized how to roll the maki, so it will be firm when you cut it up, and not to tight so as not to squeeched the soft mango.

After her demo of the Futo Maki, it was our turn to do the Futo Maki. We were given each our own working place , knife and all. Chef's tip is to use whatever ingredients that is available and which is to our liking, and of course to be careful not to cut our fingers.

I created my Maki Futo with mango, zucchini, bell pepper, carrot, purple cabbage and dipping it in wasabi sauce with calamansi and bragg liquid aminos was superb.

It was indeed a day full of new ideas for the preparation of healthier and tastier plant based diet for our everyday meal.

So let's Go for raw and plant based diet.

The Road Safety Idea Hack welcomes people from diverse backgrounds, whether in app development, digital media, social sciences, data sciences, road safety advocacy and all who are excited and interested to learn more about open data and road safety.

Interested participants will form teams to produce ideas, analyses, methologies, digital media, advocacy campaigns and app prototypes to improve road safety in the Phils., using Open Traffic data provided by Grab, road crash data aggregated by the DOTr, and other datasets, such as jeepney routes and school locations.

" The DOTr, led by Sec. Art Tugade, is strongly committed to address the country's challenges in road safety and improve the country's transportation. Accurate and reliable data on road crashes and multi-sectoral collaboration are crucial to achieve these goals. Through this initiative, we plan to tap the country's ICT talents and road safety community to develop innovative solutions," DOTr Assistant Secretary for Land Transportation and infrastructure Mark de Leon said.

The DOTr will also be launching a new platform called Data for Road Incident Visualization Evaluation and Reporting  (DRIVER ), a web-based and open-source national system for geospatially recording and analyzing road crashes.

Light Network goes Digital

  Light Network channel 33 is achieving greater innovation as it begins its official broadcast on Digital Television this coming March 2017! Through this exciting breakthrough, viewers in Mega Manila will soon be able to experience a clearer and highly-improved video and sound quality of Light Network in their televisions. Once official broadcast begins, people can now watch Light Network anytime and anywhere because not only will the channel be available on digital boxes and digital-ready televisions, but it could also be accessed through handheld devices such as tablets, smartphones and other gadgets.

The “digitalization” is the process of converting our current Analog Television broadcasting into Digital Terrestrial Television (DTT), which simply means that our existing television technology will be transformed into an upgraded, higher quality of broadcast system. Through this digital improvement, Light Network will soon be available on multiple digital viewing platforms—broadening its horizon among the television programming sphere.

In an interview with Engr. Antonio Soriano, the Vice President of Technical Operations for Light Network, he said that he is excited for the upcoming Digitalization of Light Network, because the channel had long since been prepared for this huge digital switchover. “Tayo ang unang nag-convert from Analog to Digital transmitter. Wala nang test -broadcast. Official broadcast na agad.” He also said that not all channels are ready to make the digital “switch”, making Light Network the first channel in the Philippines to migrate to the exciting domain of Digital TV, while maintaining its frequency on Channel 33.

According to the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC), once the innovative technology of Digitalization is fully implemented, it would not only deliver better image and sound quality to our television channels, but it would also be able to provide features such as datacasting, multi-channel platform, One Seg, and most importantly, the Emergency Warning Broadcast System (EWBS), which is used to transmit nationwide warning announcements in times of earthquakes, tsunamis, or other high-alert disasters.

Engr. Antonio Soriano further stated that these features are just few of the many benefits of Digital TV. According to him, through the other upcoming advancements in Digitalization, television will finally regain its essential standing in the lives of people, as compared to the rising media usage for mobile devices. “Yes. Maibabalik ang TV bilang prime Media tool,” he concluded.
