Joy is one of the dishwashing liquid effective home disinfectant

COVID-19 Update: Newfound discovery makes some dishwashing liquids effective home disinfectant. Joy PH is one of them.


In response to the global coronavirus pandemic, Japan Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry (METI) commissioned the National Institute of Technology and Evaluation (NITE) to look into other options for disinfecting homes and workplaces, to cope with the sudden surge in demands of alcohol disinfectant. Their lab studies have proven that some cleaning actives are also known as surfactants, when used at the right levels, have ingredients that make it effective against SARS-CoV-2 which causes COVID-19.


Test findings by Japan’s NITE have confirmed that there is a significant reduction in the virus count on items or surfaces that are exposed to a surfactant diluted to 0.05%-0.2% for twenty seconds to five minutes.

According to the review committee of experts, these seven types of surfactants are commonly found in household products like dishwashing liquids. 
  • Sodium linear alkylbenzene sulfonate (0.1% or more);
  • Alkyl glycoside (0.1% or more);
  • Alkylamine oxide (0.05% or more);
  • Benzalkonium chloride (0.05% or more);
  • Benzethonium chloride (0.05% or more) (newly added on May 28, 2020);
  • Dialkyldimethyl ammonium chloride (0.01% or more) (newly added on May 28, 2020);
  • Polyoxyethylene alkylether (0.2% or more)

With this research confirming more accessible ways to disinfect your homes and workplaces, 
dishwashing liquids containing these ingredients can benefit Filipinos and serve as a reliable substitute for alcohol-based disinfectants. This would mean convenience and better value for money given the product’s multi-purpose use of disinfecting various items, not just in the kitchen but other household items as well.

New solution to disinfecting against SARS-CoV-2
Japan METI/NITE recommends the solution ratio of one teaspoon of dishwashing liquid mixed in 500ml water. To sanitize, wipe all items or surfaces with a cloth soaked in this solution. Ensure to squeeze excess liquid out of the cloth to prevent the liquid from dripping. Wipe firmly in one direction to prevent spreading dirt and virus. Leave the items or surfaces to rest with the mixture for about five minutes. Then, wipe off the soap solution with a cloth soaked in water. Finally, wipe dry all items and surfaces with another clean cloth.

Grab Celebrates 8th Anniversary by Fulfilling 120 Requests and Wishes of Filipinos During the Pandemic


Grab celebrated its 8th anniversary last June by launching the "Sagot Kita" campaign wherein the company fulfilled requests of Filipinos to help them adapt to the new normal. Grab continues to be Filipinos’ partner during these trying times by providing safe and convenient access to everyday essentials.

Throughout the month of June, Grab granted over 100 requests and wishes of things and experiences Filipinos miss most during the pandemic; from requests as a means to help others— like Jellie Tiu who wished for milk and baby supplies for her friend Jan who lost her job as an OFW— to giving experiences that Filipinos missed, like Grab delivery partner Julie Vega who wished to satisfy the craving for her favorite food. To these small, big wishes and requests, Grab says, "Sagot Kita." 


Grab, Southeast Asia’s leading everyday app celebrated its 8th anniversary in June by giving back and helping fulfill the requests of Filipinos to help them adapt to the new normal.  Throughout the years, Grab has expanded its services to continuously provide safe and convenient access to everyday necessities. Today, GrabCar, GrabFood, GrabExpress, GrabPay, and GrabMart continue to give Filipinos access to their essential needs despite the limitations that the country will continue to face as we transition to the new normal. 

As a means of giving back, and reminding Filipinos that Grab has their backs, the company partnered with:
  • Nestle
  • Pringles
  • Kellogg’s
  • San Miguel Brewery
  • Ginebra San Miguel
  • San Miguel Foods
  • Lazada
  • Heineken
  • Unilever
  • P&G

Launched its Sagot Kita campaign, showing how Grab now— more than ever— proves to be Filipinos’ partner in navigating through life in the new normal. Throughout the month of June, Grab granted over 100 wishes, big and small, of things Filipinos miss the most and surprising them with experiences they wish for— from snacks that used to be part of their daily routines to milestones and occasions they missed celebrating, or even requests that extend help to others.

Using Grab as a means to help others
Filipinos prove that the spirit of helping takes center stage when the opportunity arises. Instead of satisfying personal whims, many wishes were made for others— family, friends, or neighbors that need a little bit of help to get by during these trying times. 


Jan de los Reyes has found a true friend in Jellie Tiu. When Jellie heard about Grab’s campaign, she used the opportunity to help her friend and her 10-month old daughter. Losing her job as an OFW after the lockdown, Jan is left scrambling for ways to keep providing for her child. With the help of Grab, baby supplies and milk were delivered safely via GrabExpress. 

Through thick or thin, Lony Marvillo stands by her husband's side. She provides for them both by operating a small sari-sari store, as her husband is no longer fit to work and is in need of dialysis. Instead of wishing for financial assistance, Lony instead wished for more supplies to sell in her store to sustain their livelihood. Her small sari-sari store waa replenished with the help of GrabMart. 


Having a soft spot for animals, Manila Santos went ahead and wished for supplies for the staff and animals of PAWS. Some of the staff were locked in the shelter during quarantine, and were in need of supplies. Animal food donation also dwindled, and a little help would go a long way. Delivered by GrabExpress, PAWS was able to receive groceries for the staff, and food for the animals. 

Grab brings back experiences Filipinos missed the most
So many restrictions brought us realizations that there are experiences we can no longer do like before. To bring delight to this mood-dampening thought, Grab made ways for people to bring back these experiences one way or another. 

Social distancing doesn’t allow much for close contact, and Greg Cendana expressed that he misses eating out with his girlfriend Iyrelle Mauricio. Granting his wish through GrabFood, a virtual pizza date was set up to make up for the distance.


Mary Ann Mangalindan’s weekend routine with her husband was to stop by Max’s after a grocery run. Bringing back that favorite weekend experience, GrabFood says "Sagot Kita" by sending over their favorite Max’s items for her and her husband to share.  


Julie Vega is a Grab delivery partner who is an independent parent to her only daughter. With her income just enough for their daily needs, they don’t often get the chance to enjoy their favorite food. But thanks to GrabFood, mother and child enjoyed a sumptuous meal of lechon and pancit palabok. 

Life as we know it may not return to how it was for a long time. But with the help of Grab, adjusting to the new normal is made easier and safer with its services:
  • GrabCar that ensures safe transport from one location to another
  • GrabPay that enables contactless and cashless transactions
  • GrabExpress that helps individuals and merchants deliver goods to others
  • GrabMart that allows customers to conveniently purchase essentials without the need to go out and, 
  • GrabFood that delivers meals to customers in the safety of their homes

Experience what Grab has to offer and avail of over 100 promos in celebration of its 8th anniversary. Make life in the new normal a little bit better with the help of Grab. Kami muna ang bahala

The Country’s Biggest Content Creators Unite to Help Medical Frontliners

“We are all influencers in our own way. As influencers, we actually possess the power to get people to support a good cause. There’s no better time to make good use of our influence than this critical juncture when our medical frontliners need our support.” ~Jim Guzman, CICP President

With the global pandemic that the Philippines is facing, it has come to our senses that the only way we will be able to defeat this is by listening to our authorities and most importantly, by helping and lifting each other up. It's been three months since the Philippines has been placed under quarantine due to COVID-19, which means our medical front liners have been sacrificing for three months for all of us.

The fight is far from over but we can win this together. We need to unite. Some of the country's creators and influencers have gathered for #CreatorsUnitedPH. an effort that seeks to raise funds to procure DOH-approved medical-grade PPEs for our medical front liners.

With the continuing rise of positive cases in the country, the Creator and Influencer Council of the Philippines (CICP) recognizes its pivotal role in dealing with the pandemic by drawing on the collective power of creators and influencers, all of who can draw support for a cause.
“No donation is too small. When we come together, we are able to achieve much, much more. Pooled together, these funds will be of tremendous help to our medical frontliners. We should never underestimate our capacity to do good, because together, we can help make a difference in the ongoing battle against the virus.” ~Erwan Heussaff, Public Relations Officer (PRO) of CICP
In this light, CICP is organizing #CreatorsUnitedPH, a fundraising effort by the creator and influencer industry for the procurement of DOH-approved, medical-grade Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our medical frontliners. Currently, a single hospital uses almost 500 PPEs every day. While donated alternative PPEs are helpful, many of these are left unused due to its inability to fully protect the frontliners.

To further amplify the initiative, the country’s biggest creators from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao are uniting through a video to bring awareness to their audience. These creators are:
  • Erwan Heussaff
  • Mikey Bustos
  • Wil Dasovich
  • Mimiyuuuh
  • Rei Germar
  • Rozel Basilio
  • Ranz and Niana Guerrero
  • Kimpoy Feliciano
  • Jako de Leon
  • Carlo Ople
  • Hazel Quing
  • Haidee Quing
  • Malaya Macaraeg
  • Alem Garcia
  • Issa Perez
  • Rigel Thomas

#CreatorsUnitedPH aims to raise Php 1,000,000 to purchase 1,000 pieces of DOH-approved, medical-grade PPEs worth P 1,000 each. These PPEs will be coursed through the Department of Health to be distributed to hospitals and medical facilities across the country, including:
  • The Philippine General Hospital
  • Dr. Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital
  • Lung Center of the Philippines
  • Fe del Mundo Medical Center
  • San Lazaro Hospital
  • Tarlac Provincial Hospital
  • Kainomayan Primary Hospital
  • General Cailles Memorial District Hospital
  • Casiguran District Hospital
  • Vicente Sotto Medical Center Cebu

In light of this, #CreatorsUnitedPH is knocking on your hearts to help provide their front liners and health workers with DOH-approved medical-grade PPE's. Any amount is greatly appreciated. You may send your donations through Go Get Funding. DONATE AT LEAST P100 and it will go a long way in helping us raise P1,000,000 to provide 1,000 PPE's to our frontliners!

Vivo V19 Neo's large-capacity 4500mAh Li-Po battery

The latest V19 Neo is powered by a 4500mAh lithium-polymer (Li-Po) battery, one of the largest capacities in its price range, to keep Vivo's flagship midrange smartphone running in optimum performance, longer.

With its long-lasting Li-Po power source, the V19 Neo can accommodate Google, Gmail, Facebook, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Tiktok, and other heavily used applications that can typically drain a standard battery.

The 4500mAh battery can also smoothly run the V19 Neo’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 AIE octa-core processor with 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM, making for fast app launches, better navigation and multi-tasking; and enabling users to play their favorite graphics-heavy mobile games for hours.

Nowadays, with people spending most of their time online, some have become dependent on electronic devices, especially smartphones, to keep them connected with friends and loved ones, and to conveniently pursue and enjoy their lifestyles.

And with different activities—messaging on various platforms, posting on social media, surfing the internet, buying from online stores, listening to music, watching movies and videos, and playing online games—keeping people busy on their smartphones wherever they may be, it would truly be disappointing to get a low battery warning, or the handset going “dead”.

Thankfully, the latest V19 Neo is powered by a 4500mAh lithium-polymer (Li-Po) battery, one of the largest capacities in its price range, to keep Vivo's flagship midrange smartphone running in optimum performance, longer.

With its long-lasting Li-Po power source, the V19 Neo can accommodate Google, Gmail, Facebook, WhatsApp, and Facebook Messenger, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Tiktok, and other heavily used applications that can typically drain a standard battery.

The 4500mAh battery can also smoothly run the V19 Neo’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 675 AIE octa-core processor with 8GB RAM and 128GB ROM, making for fast app launches, better navigation and multi-tasking; and enabling users to play their favorite graphics-heavy mobile games for hours.

The handset is also equipped with AI Turbo, Center Turbo, Game Turbo, Net Turbo, Cooling Turbo, and ART++ Turbo. These multi-turbo functions offer an elevated and exciting gaming experience especially when playing PUBG Mobile, NBA 2K, Mobile Legends, Fortnite, or other favorite RPGs, shooters, SIMS, puzzle, strategy, racing, sports, and augmented reality games that will keep gamers up all night.

With a battery that powers up hours of game time, the V19 Neo also features an Ultra Game Mode which makes for totally undisturbed playing, blocking messages and alerts, so one can be fully immersed and engaged with the game.

And when the battery is about to be depleted, users can rely on the V19 Neo’s 18W dual-engine fast charging technology to juice up the 4500mAh power source in a flash, so they can quickly get back to winning their game.

Aside from its high-capacity battery and fast-charging technology, quad-core processor, and game modes, Vivo's flagship midrange smartphone also boasts of an Ultra O AMOLED capacitive touchscreen which makes the gaming experience even more thrilling.

The 6.44-inch FHD+ screen brings out the games’ vibrant and authentic colors without causing unnecessary eyestrain. Its low brightness anti-flicker technology also provides added protection for the eyes, especially when playing in low-light and dark conditions.

The V19 Neo is available in Crystal White and Admiral Blue colorways, for only P17,999 at authorized Vivo stores nationwide. To know more about the Vivo V19 Neo, visit  https://www.vivo.com/ph/products/v19neo or https://www.vivoglobal.ph/.

Pexels updates search algorithm to increase visibility for LGBTQ+ community

“As one of the premier free photo and video libraries, we understand the power a photo or video can have. Media has the power to make or break ideologies, challenge the status quo and humanize experiences. Images fuel stories and create movements, and it’s our responsibility as a global platform to act as a force for good; a force that helps power progress. This is why we’re improving our learning algorithm. The next time someone searches for “couple” or “love” they will find refreshing content that reflects life as it really is around us—straight couples, same-sex couples, interracial couples, non-binary folks, and more.” ~Monica Silvestre, Head of Community at Pexels
Searching for the term ‘couple’ on Pexels returns images representing all races, genders, and identities
Pexels’ algorithm update gives LGBTQ+ couples equal presence, another step in strengthening its overall quest to improve representation for marginalized communities.

Pexels, the multimedia library dedicated to sharing diverse, free stock photos and videos, announced that it has made a major update to its algorithm to increase the visibility of content that celebrates the LGBTQ+ community. This announcement follows Pexels’ previous partnership with Nappy in March of 2018 to highlight photos representative of diverse cultures and races. A company that values inclusivity at its core, Pexels has been on a mission to improve its search results to provide more well-rounded offerings since it launched in 2014 and was later acquired by Canva in 2018. Now, in light of Pride month, Pexels is permanently adjusting its algorithm for all relationship-based search keywords to deliver more diversity across genders and sexualities, giving presence to all types of relationships.

Pexels shows photos of families with straight couples, same-sex couples, and interracial couples when you search for the term ‘family’
Pexels sets itself apart from its competitors with its artful, high-quality, and curated library that offers over two million photos and videos for free. Additionally, Pexels’ library is the first truly inclusive collection focused on diversity across cultures, ethnicities, and genders. While other stock photo sites do have images to reflect the diversity, these do not naturally surface in the search results.

To find these photos, users must use search terms that clearly indicate whether they want a photo of a straight or a same-sex couple. Pexels’ algorithm update is focused on inclusivity and prioritizing LGBTQ+ imagery, democratizing all images, not requiring a user to delineate between same-sex or other descriptors. Search terms like ‘couple’ or ‘holding hands,’ that typically only return images of heterosexual couples, now yield photos representing all races, genders, and identities, increasing visibility and encouraging mainstream use. In a space that is crowded with cisgender, heteronormative, and white-washed content, Pexels continues to be a pioneer in supporting underrepresented communities. The company hopes to empower its own community to tell better stories and inspire other stock photo sites to do the same.


In addition to the algorithm update, Pexels has amped up its efforts to partner with creators and companies that prioritize images and videos that challenge relationship norms and offer LGBTQ+ perspectives. The team will continue to adjust how its algorithm learns, making it intentionally calculate equal representation in order to offer its users choices they might not have previously considered. Pexels also employs a team of curators to specifically view, tag and boost submitted images to ensure the highest level of diversity and equality across the platform. Pexels encourages all photographers and creators to upload their LGBTQ+ photography to the platform.
