The award-winning Filipino girl group 4th Impact joins SB19 and KAIA as part of Sony Music and ShowBT family

It’s an answered prayer for us. We once prayed for a management who will really take care of us and believe in what we can do. We feel ShowBT and Sony Music are the right companies to help us reach more of our dreams. And it is such a great honor to be part of their roster and be lined up with the P-Pop Kings: SB19. We wanted it to be a new anthem. It’s an empowering song that aims to celebrate Filipinas all around the world, and how they’ve shown grace and excellence amidst troubling times. We wanted to empower everyone, especially Filipino women, to believe in themselves and hold on to their dreams. Everything is possible if we just work together as one.” ~4th Impact

It’s official: 4th Impact is the newest addition to Sony Music Philippines and ShowBT Philippines’ roster of music talents, which include P-Pop kings SB19 and five-member girl group KAIA.

No stranger to conquering the international music scene, 4th Impact made waves in the UK after finishing fifth on the British singing contest, The X Factor and peaking at No. 10 on iTunes Brazil with their 2020 single “K(NO)W MORE.” Late last year, the award-winning girl group co-headlined the crossover orchestra concert, Forte with SB19, which received glowing reviews for its exemplary fusion of classical and Pinoy pop music on a live stage format. 

After being officially welcomed by Sony Music Philippines and ShowBT Philippines as part of the family, 4th Impact expressed gratitude for the interesting developments in their career. 

To mark the beginning of this eventful partnership, 4th Impact has released their new single “Here We Go,” which was produced by Choi YoungHo (Handsome People) and Zrademusic (Adrian K, Methuselah K.). With a masterful blend of R&B diva chops, hip-hop sass, and stadium-sized energy, the upbeat track positions 4th Impact as a vocal powerhouse deserving of global acclaim.

4th Impact revealed that it’s their first time writing a song, and that their own life story is the main inspiration behind the lyrics.

Jollibee Group Foundation grants scholarship to young farmers

“I want to be a farmer because I want to help my father, who is a farmer. Thanks to the scholarship, I have learned how to improve our farm and turn it into a sustainable business that provides more income to our family.” ~Sean Kelly T. Dagusen, Youth Farmer and Agro-entrepreneurship Scholar
Sean Kelly Dagusen is one of the 50 agro-entrepreneurship scholars of the Jollibee Group Foundation for 2022. As part of its commitment to promote agriculture to the youth, the JGF has already provided agriculture technical-vocational skills training scholarships to 380 underprivileged youth since 2020.

The Philippines’ farming population is growing older, raising concerns on who will carry out this critical task in the coming years. The country’s Department of Agriculture cites that the average age of the Filipino farmer is 53 years old and puts the sustainability of the country’s agriculture sector at risk. 

To continue encouraging the youth to be engaged and employed in the agriculture sector, the Jollibee Group Foundation (JGF) provides scholarships to agro-enterprise courses for young farmers. These scholarships are in support of JGF’s Farmer Entrepreneurship Program (FEP), which trains smallholder farmer groups on agro-entrepreneurship, business, and leadership to build their capacities to collectively supply vegetables that meet the standards and requirements of corporate buyers, while ensuring profit.

The Foundation has provided some 380 youth with agriculture technical-vocational skills training scholarships. In 2021, JGF beefed up this initiative by launching one of the country’s first Agro-enterprise National Certificate II Technical-Vocational Course. This was co-developed with Don Bosco and accredited by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA). Fifty underprivileged youth were provided with scholarships to participate in the said course, 25 of whom were trained by Don Bosco Training Center in Mati City, the other half is provided through the Sacred Heart Savings Cooperative community-based training center in Galimuyod, Ilocos Sur.

“Since its launch in 2008, we continue to expand the Farmer Entrepreneurship Program's reach to more farmers, partners, and the youth to help steer the agriculture sector toward sustainability. We want to show the youth that there are fulfilling opportunities in the farming sector, especially as agro-entrepreneurs. We want to help farmers earn more by engaging them not only in production, but also in collective marketing. Farmers, especially the young ones, need partners who can journey with them in envisioning and building their agro-enterprises.” ~Gisela Tiongson, JGF Executive Director

This year, JGF will expand the coverage of scholarships through other centers, including community centers and other technical-vocational schools.

The Jollibee Group Foundation’s agro-enterprise scholarships help young farmers sharpen their technical skills and business acumen so that they can become agro-entrepreneurs capable of supplying institutional buyers such as the Jollibee Group.

“While we address the problems caused by the pandemic, it is imperative for us in the development sector to continue our efforts in equipping our farmers with new concepts of agriculture and business. Through this, we can maximize our production and access to the value chain despite the looming threat on the shortage of farmers.” ~Jaime D. Galanta, Sacred Heart Savings Cooperative Chief Executive Officer

To date, FEP farmers have delivered close to 9 million kilos of vegetables to the Jollibee Group, equivalent to more than USD7 million worth of sales. As of 2021, nearly 20% of the close to 600 FEP farmers from 17 farmer groups directly supplying vegetables to the Jollibee Group belong to the youth sector.

Singlife’s Cash for Income Loss, a must have for every breadwinner

“We offer the middle-income class in the Philippines solutions that have been exclusively available to the top 10% in the past. Protection for income loss is however especially valuable to normal people. People that work hard every day to provide their families a good life and have the aspiration for a better future for their kids and themselves. Our products support them to be financially protected, whatever happens, and we do that without breaking their budget.” ~Rien Hermans, Singlife’s CEO
Need to protect yourself and your loved ones from possible income loss? Singlife’s Cash for Income Loss has you covered, FREE P100k accidents cover for 3 months.

Your salary empowers you to pay for housing, food and all the niceties in life for yourself and your loved ones. Money makes the world go round, as they say. But does your family’s world stop when disability, or even death, strike, and the salary you’ve gotten used to is no longer being paid?

Most homes have one or two breadwinners, those that bring in the money to live the life you have been living. And as most of us experience, adjusting your spending when the money coming in increases goes without a problem. Having that special lunch in your favorite place every week, sending the kids to a more expensive school, or buying that extra pair of shoes makes living life more enjoyable.  

It is another story when the money that is available for spending decreases, as the salary we were used to is no longer something we can count on. Disability and even death are realities, and after just coming from a pandemic we all know very well that bad luck can happen to anyone.  

Apart from the unfortunate direct effects, it all becomes a lot worse if there is also a significant financial impact. Just imagine being disabled and having to move out of the house as you can’t afford it anymore, and sending your kids to a new public school, and struggling to even get enough money for food on the table so that the kids grow up healthy.  

Of course, chances are that you will never experience this, and we certainly wish you the best, but how much better would it feel if you could be prepared?

Singlife’s Cash for Income Loss is the perfect product for this and for around only Php 280 per month, you can already ensure that you or your loved ones will receive a replacement income of Php 30,000 per month for 3 full years. That’s more than a million to get your life back on track, for the price of two packs of cigarettes per month.  

Singlife’s Cash for Income loss is available in GCash, where you can choose your preferred cover by answering a few questions, get insured, and receive your policy in just a few minutes.  

FREE P100k Accidents Insurance for 3 months

The threat of the new COVID-19 variant BA.2 is making rounds on the news which means that we need to put our guards up once again to protect ourselves from getting sick, especially with flu.

At the onset of flu symptoms, it is mandatory that we address them right away with the right steps and the right medication, so you can get back on track.

Flu is definitely bad news, especially when you have to worry about the ongoing pandemic along with it. There is always the possibility that the symptoms you are feeling could be signs of COVID-19. 
This only means one thing: When you are experiencing flu symptoms, you need to address them right away with the right steps and the right medication, so you can get back on track.
The flu is a contagious infection caused by the influenza virus. It is usually accompanied by a cough or cold, and its symptoms could last from two to three days to about a week. These symptoms include clogged nose, sneezing, runny nose, headaches and body aches, fever. Having the flu can leave you feeling tired and restless the whole day, if not for several days. When you have the flu, it’s likely that you will need bed to alleviate its symptoms. 

Leaving your flu untreated could lead to more severe symptoms and a longer recovery time from the illness.  
To recover from the flu immediately, you will need to stay home and rest until your symptoms are better. This also prevents you from spreading it; it is important to stay away from children and the elderly as they are more susceptible to the flu’s more severe symptoms.
Constant hydration is also the key to recovering from the flu. You will also need to eat healthy foods during your bout with the illness, even if you have no appetite for it because of your condition.
Taking the right medication to treat your flu can also fast-track your way to recovery—like Phenylephrine HCl Chlorphenamine Maleate Paracetamol (BIOFLU), a multi-benefit solution to flu symptoms.

It is also formulated to relieve symptoms of other related ailments such as sinusitis and allergic rhinitis. This makes the product a valuable multi-purpose medication for every Filipino household.

Phenylephrine HCl Chlorphenamine Maleate Paracetamol (BIOFLU) can also be taken to relieve side effects brought about by the COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots.
