PHILIPPINE National Police (PNP) Chief General Benjamin Acorda Jr. has ordered the crafting of guidelines aimed to strengthen its operations against the illegal sale of e-cigarettes, commonly known as vape, especially to minors.On Thursday, March 7, 2024, Acorda met with Health Secretary Ted Herbosa, who sought the PNP’s assistance to ensure that individuals 17 years old and below will have no access to vape products.Herbosa noted the urgent threat posed by the widespread use of these products to the physical health and overall well-being of the nation’s youth.In response, Acorda presented a comprehensive strategy to address the growing issue, particularly to apprehend vape sellers who are violating provision under Republic Act 11900, or the “The Vaporized Nicotine and Non-nicotine Products Regulation Act.”“Our law enforcement agencies will work hand in hand with the Department of Health to ensure the strict enforcement of existing laws, holding vendors and retailers accountable for compliance with age restrictions and imposing penalties for any violations,” said Acorda.“The PNP, in partnership with the DOH and DTI (Department of Trade and Industry), remains dedicated to safeguarding the well-being of the youth and the general public. These proactive measures are designed to address the current surge in youth vaping and shield future generations from the detrimental effects of these harmful products,” he added.The top cop said the Directorate for Police Community Relations (DPCR) was tasked to conduct an awareness campaign to educate the public, particularly the youth, about the harmful effects of vaping.Acorda also called on media organizations to utilize their platforms to raise awareness about the negative consequences of vaping for both users and sellers, highlighting the health risks posed to children.Under the law, the legal age for purchasing vape products is stipulated at 18 years old and above, with a strict ban on vape sales within a 100-meter radius of educational institutions, playgrounds, and other areas frequented by minors.It also urges establishments to designate specific vaping areas for their patrons, promoting responsible and regulated usage.Similar to traditional cigarettes, vaping also carries second-hand and third-hand effects due to the presence of harmful substances in vape products, emphasizing the severe health risks, particularly for minors, the DOH said. (TPM/SunStar Philippines) Okada Online Casino Philippines [UPDATED] TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Taiwan's strongest earthquake in a quarter century rocked the island during the morning rush hour Wednesday, April 3, 2024, damaging buildings and highways and leaving nine people dead.In the capital, Taipei, tiles fell from older buildings as the earthquake shook the city, and schools evacuated their students to sports fields, equipping them with yellow safety helmets.Some children covered themselves with textbooks to guard against falling objects as aftershocks continued. Afterward, a five-story building in Hualien County, near the offshore epicenter, was left leaning at a 45-degree angle, with its first floor collapsed.Taiwan's national fire agency said nine people died in the quake, which struck just before 8 a.m.The local United Daily News reported three hikers died in rockslides in Taroko National Park and a van driver died in the same area after boulders hit the vehicle.The agency said authorities have lost contact with 50 people in minibuses after the quake downed phone networks. More than 70 other people are trapped, but believed to be alive, including some in a coal mine. Another 882 have been injured.Taiwan’s earthquake monitoring agency said the quake was 7.2 magnitude while the US Geological Survey put it at 7.4. It struck about 18 kilometers (11.1 miles) south-southwest of Hualien and was about 35 kilometers (21 miles) deep.Multiple aftershocks followed, and the USGS said one of the subsequent quakes was 6.5 magnitude and 11.8 kilometers (7 miles) deep.Shallower quakes tend to cause more surface damage.The earthquake triggered a tsunami warning that was later lifted.Authorities said they had expected a relatively mild quake of magnitude 4 and accordingly did not send out alerts. Still, the earthquake was strong enough to scare people who are used to such shaking.“Earthquakes are a common occurrence, and I’ve grown accustomed to them. But today was the first time I was scared to tears by an earthquake,” said Hsien-hsuen Keng, a resident who lives in a fifth-floor apartment in Taipei. ”I was awakened by the earthquake. I had never felt such intense shaking before.”Television images showed neighbors and rescue workers lifting residents, including a toddler, through windows and onto the street. All appeared mobile, in shock but without serious injuries. Doors had been fused shut by the pressure of the tilt.The national legislature, a converted school built before World War II, and sections of the main airport in Taoyuan, just south of Taipei, also saw minor damage.Traffic along the east coast was at a virtual standstill after the earthquake, with landslides and falling debris hitting tunnels and highways in the mountainous region. Train service was suspended across the island of 23 million people, as was subway service in the capital, Taipei, where a newly constructed above-ground line partially separated.The Japan Meteorological Agency said a tsunami wave of 30 centimeters (about 1 foot) was detected on the coast of Yonaguni island about 15 minutes after the quake struck. Smaller waves were measured in Ishigaki and Miyako islands.The earthquake was felt in Shanghai and several provinces along China’s southeastern coast, according to Chinese media. China and Taiwan are about 160 kilometers (100 miles) apart. China issued no tsunami warnings for the Chinese mainland and all such alerts in the region had been lifted by Wednesday afternoon.The initial panic after the earthquake quickly faded on the island, which is regularly rocked by temblors and prepares for them with drills at schools and notices issued via public media and mobile phone.By noon, the metro station in the busy northern Taipei suburb of Beitou was again buzzing with people commuting to jobs and seniors arriving to visit the hot springs or travel the mountain paths at the base of an extinct volcano.Stephen Gao, a seismologist and professor at Missouri University of Science and Technology, said Taiwan’s earthquake preparedness is among the most advanced in the world, featuring strict building codes, a world-class seismological network, and widespread public education campaigns on earthquake safety.Hualien was last struck by a deadly quake in 2018 that collapsed a historic hotel and other buildings. Taiwan's worst quake in recent years struck on September 21, 1999, with a magnitude of 7.7, causing 2,400 deaths, injuring around 100,000 and destroying thousands of buildings.Taiwan lies along the Pacific “Ring of Fire,” the line of seismic faults encircling the Pacific Ocean where most of the world's earthquakes occur.The economic fallout from the quake has yet to be calculated, but Taiwan is the leading manufacturer of the world's most sophisticated computer chips and other high-technology items that are highly sensitive to seismic events. Parts of the electricity grid were also shut down, possibly leading to disruptions in the supply chain and financial losses.Taiwanese chipmaker TSMC, which supplies semiconductors to companies such as Apple, said it evacuated employees from some of its factories in Hsinchu, southwest of Taipei. Hsinchu authorities said water and electricity supplies for all the factories in the city’s science park were functioning as normal.The Taiwan stock exchange opened as usual on Wednesday, with the index wavering between losses and gains.

(AP) When is BingoPlus Everytime you are available HAVING contributed billions of pesos to the economy of Cebu City, the City Council moves to honor the Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) industry.On Wednesday, March 6, 2024, a public consultation was held at the Doña Eva Macaraeg Macapagal Hall at the City Hall for the proposed “Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) Industry Day Ordinance of 2023” authored by City Councilor Pancrasio Esparis. In his speech, Esparis said the industry has pulled the city’s economy from faltering during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. He said the industry remained operational through a work-from-home (WFH) setup when the majority of business and commercial establishments were closed. Until today, he said, the industry employs thousands of Cebuanos and continuously contributes to the City’s coffers, therefore it has to be recognized. “Dili na ma-ihap ang mga ekonomikanhon kinabuhi ang nausab tungod sa BPO industry,” Esparis said. (Countless economic lives have been changed because of it.)Under the proposed ordinance, Cebu City will commemorate the celebration of BPO Day on April 1, citing that it was the day when the National Government allowed workers to return to work on-site despite health restrictions due to the pandemic back in 2020. The celebration shall be organized by the Department of Manpower Development and Placement. During the public hearing, Hazel Aguisanda, Concentrix Philippines executive director, said that in her 20 years of stay in Cebu, it was the first time the Cebu City Government recognized their industry. She said Concentrix employs around 10,000 employees in Cebu alone. She said the recognition will open up more collaborative initiatives between the industry and the City Government, including adjacent towns and cities, to contribute more to the growing economy of Cebu. “We are privileged and grateful for the formal recognition that the council has afforded. So look forward to more productive years,” Aguisanda said. However, Cebu Information Technology and Business Process Management (IT-BPM) Organization vice president Darwin John Moises suggested celebrating BPO Day on March 28 instead, which was the first day the lockdown, or the enhanced community quarantine, was implemented.On that day, the industry shifted to a WFH setup that allowed its workers to continue their operations, he said.He also suggested naming the celebration as the IT-BPM Day.He said the industry has evolved to various services and processes, aside from the usual call or contact centers at the Cebu IT Park in Barangay Apas, Cebu City. “Just for the numbers, there are over 300 companies already in the IT-BPM space, employing around 200,000 people, and if we are to include in the measure for indirect employment that is about 550,000 people,” Moises said. The proposed ordinance has not yet passed its third and final reading to become an official ordinance. The Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines, the trade body and advocacy group for the IT-BPM industry, emphasized the importance of continued investment in various areas to achieve the country’s target of 2.5 million full-time workers and US$59 billion in revenue by 2028. These investments must be made in real estate, infrastructure, reliable network connectivity and stable baseload power supply. Stakeholders also advocate for increased investments in road, rail and air connectivity to facilitate seamless logistics operations. With an increasing number of businesses adopting hybrid work models, the roadmap emphasizes the importance of reliable and affordable network connectivity in residential areas. / EHP

[UPDATED] TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Taiwan's strongest earthquake in a quarter century rocked the island during the morning rush hour Wednesday, April 3, 2024, damaging buildings and highways and leaving nine people dead.In the capital, Taipei, tiles fell from older buildings as the earthquake shook the city, and schools evacuated their students to sports fields, equipping them with yellow safety helmets.Some children covered themselves with textbooks to guard against falling objects as aftershocks continued. Afterward, a five-story building in Hualien County, near the offshore epicenter, was left leaning at a 45-degree angle, with its first floor collapsed.Taiwan's national fire agency said nine people died in the quake, which struck just before 8 a.m.The local United Daily News reported three hikers died in rockslides in Taroko National Park and a van driver died in the same area after boulders hit the vehicle.The agency said authorities have lost contact with 50 people in minibuses after the quake downed phone networks. More than 70 other people are trapped, but believed to be alive, including some in a coal mine. Another 882 have been injured.Taiwan’s earthquake monitoring agency said the quake was 7.2 magnitude while the US Geological Survey put it at 7.4. It struck about 18 kilometers (11.1 miles) south-southwest of Hualien and was about 35 kilometers (21 miles) deep.Multiple aftershocks followed, and the USGS said one of the subsequent quakes was 6.5 magnitude and 11.8 kilometers (7 miles) deep.Shallower quakes tend to cause more surface damage.The earthquake triggered a tsunami warning that was later lifted.Authorities said they had expected a relatively mild quake of magnitude 4 and accordingly did not send out alerts. Still, the earthquake was strong enough to scare people who are used to such shaking.“Earthquakes are a common occurrence, and I’ve grown accustomed to them.

Doors had been fused shut by the pressure of the tilt.The national legislature, a converted school built before World War II, and sections of the main airport in Taoyuan, just south of Taipei, also saw minor damage.Traffic along the east coast was at a virtual standstill after the earthquake, with landslides and falling debris hitting tunnels and highways in the mountainous region. Train service was suspended across the island of 23 million people, as was subway service in the capital, Taipei, where a newly constructed above-ground line partially separated.The Japan Meteorological Agency said a tsunami wave of 30 centimeters (about 1 foot) was detected on the coast of Yonaguni island about 15 minutes after the quake struck. Smaller waves were measured in Ishigaki and Miyako islands.The earthquake was felt in Shanghai and several provinces along China’s southeastern coast, according to Chinese media.

(AP) licensed online casinos HAVING contributed billions of pesos to the economy of Cebu City, the City Council moves to honor the Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) industry.On Wednesday, March 6, 2024, a public consultation was held at the Doña Eva Macaraeg Macapagal Hall at the City Hall for the proposed “Business Processing Outsourcing (BPO) Industry Day Ordinance of 2023” authored by City Councilor Pancrasio Esparis. In his speech, Esparis said the industry has pulled the city’s economy from faltering during the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. He said the industry remained operational through a work-from-home (WFH) setup when the majority of business and commercial establishments were closed. Until today, he said, the industry employs thousands of Cebuanos and continuously contributes to the City’s coffers, therefore it has to be recognized. “Dili na ma-ihap ang mga ekonomikanhon kinabuhi ang nausab tungod sa BPO industry,” Esparis said. (Countless economic lives have been changed because of it.)Under the proposed ordinance, Cebu City will commemorate the celebration of BPO Day on April 1, citing that it was the day when the National Government allowed workers to return to work on-site despite health restrictions due to the pandemic back in 2020. The celebration shall be organized by the Department of Manpower Development and Placement. During the public hearing, Hazel Aguisanda, Concentrix Philippines executive director, said that in her 20 years of stay in Cebu, it was the first time the Cebu City Government recognized their industry. She said Concentrix employs around 10,000 employees in Cebu alone. She said the recognition will open up more collaborative initiatives between the industry and the City Government, including adjacent towns and cities, to contribute more to the growing economy of Cebu. “We are privileged and grateful for the formal recognition that the council has afforded. So look forward to more productive years,” Aguisanda said. However, Cebu Information Technology and Business Process Management (IT-BPM) Organization vice president Darwin John Moises suggested celebrating BPO Day on March 28 instead, which was the first day the lockdown, or the enhanced community quarantine, was implemented.On that day, the industry shifted to a WFH setup that allowed its workers to continue their operations, he said.He also suggested naming the celebration as the IT-BPM Day.He said the industry has evolved to various services and processes, aside from the usual call or contact centers at the Cebu IT Park in Barangay Apas, Cebu City. “Just for the numbers, there are over 300 companies already in the IT-BPM space, employing around 200,000 people, and if we are to include in the measure for indirect employment that is about 550,000 people,” Moises said. The proposed ordinance has not yet passed its third and final reading to become an official ordinance. The Information Technology and Business Process Association of the Philippines, the trade body and advocacy group for the IT-BPM industry, emphasized the importance of continued investment in various areas to achieve the country’s target of 2.5 million full-time workers and US$59 billion in revenue by 2028. These investments must be made in real estate, infrastructure, reliable network connectivity and stable baseload power supply. Stakeholders also advocate for increased investments in road, rail and air connectivity to facilitate seamless logistics operations. With an increasing number of businesses adopting hybrid work models, the roadmap emphasizes the importance of reliable and affordable network connectivity in residential areas. / EHP
