Ethanol Producers Push for Energy Research Institute

“The PERPI is connected with bioethanol because we are operating within the energy industry. The more data we get from the situation that abounds right now in the Philippines, the more we will be able to prosper as an industry. I hope that the effect of bioethanol on the environment is taken also into consideration because we don’t have good data on that. We are supporting research on the energy mix. We’re supporting research on the advantages of this biofuel, 10 to 15 years from now. Remember Brazil, is doing 100 percent, 85 percent at least of bioethanol for transportation. Why transportation, because it’s one of the largest sources of carbon. We wanted also to be carbon neutral. The alcohol industry also wants to be carbon neutral also. We wanted to fix our carbon footprint. I guess the PERPI would give us data or would reinforce the advantages of the bioethanol industry. We will be reading all those data. It’s a scientific approach. We have to take in technological advancement in the industry because that is continuous. ~Gerardo Tee, CARD Chairman

The Center for Alcohol Research and Development (CARD) expressed strong support to the Senate Bill No. 1574, also known as the Philippine Energy Research and Policy Institute (PERPI) Act of 2018 sponsored by Senator Sherwin Gatchalian as it will help grow the industry.
“More than ever, the Philippines needs to develop a stable, affordable, and sustainable energy supply, as this will be critical to meeting the country’s ambitious long term socio-economic goals. I firmly believe that the PERPI Act will empower us to meet these goals and help us build a stronger and more prosperous future for our nation.” ~Senator Sherwin Gatchalian
There is a need for more research and development to enable the bioethanol industry to cope with advancements in technology.

The bill aims to create a world-class think tank meant to bridge research and policy gaps in the Philippine energy sector, in hopes of fostering greater energy security, sustainability, and affordability in the country.

The Biofuels Law mandates a 10 percent blend of ethanol in gasoline but other countries such as Brazil have long imposed a higher blend to reduce their dependence on imported fuels for their transportation sector.

SB 1574 mandates the establishment of the Philippine Energy Research and Policy Institute at the University of the Philippines.

PERPI is inspired by similar international energy think tanks hosted by top American universities. It will be tasked to conduct multidisciplinary energy research, incubate and develop cutting edge technologies, and serve as the sparring partner for the government during the energy policy-making process.

According to Tee, PERPI will help the industry “on how best to improve our best practices.” 

Tee added that there are new development in alcohol manufacturing that are just developing now or may be feasible in the next few years and the industry should be ready to adopt to those technologies

Gatchalian is proposing that as a publicly-funded institute, PERPI will be in charge of ensuring that the results of its research and policy development activities are used to craft energy sector reforms for the benefit of the national economy and promote the welfare of the Filipino people.

The bill appropriates P200 million for the initial funding of the think tank. An Endowment Fund will also be established to further power the institute’s research.

Shell Bike Fair 2018 Gears Up for Epic Finale in Manila

“Shell Bike Fair 2018 is our way of solidifying our commitment to the Filipino bikers. Through this event, we hope to recognize the bike clubs’ positive contributions to the community. It’s their courage that inspires us at Shell. And it is the goal of Shell Advance to help our riders outride any obstacles they encounter by protecting their engines and helping improve the smoothness and responsiveness of their bikes.” ~Lorrie Ramirez, Shell Advance Brand Manager

After the very successful Baguio run, with this year’s theme, “Together We Ride Stronger,” Shell Bike Fair 2018 kicked off in Baguio last July with close to 3,000 bikers braving the rains to take part in the event held at the CAP John Hay Convention Center. The Shell Manila Bike Fair will have its epic finale on September 22, 2018 (Saturday) at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC). 

BIKE riders, club members, and enthusiasts are expected to pack the Philippine International Convention Center as Shell Bike Fair 2018 culminates in Manila on the 22nd of September.

One of the highlights of this much-awaited event is the search for the Shell Outriders Best Bike Club, a nationwide competition for groups that exemplify the values of a responsible and socially-active riding community.
“We recognize our bikers’ passion for driving and the challenges they face on the road every day. That’s why we at Shell continue to develop products designed to be their reliable companion on the road. Right alongside Shell Advance, we have the Shell V-Power fuels line designed to deliver both performance and efficiency for our customers to ride well.” ~Mark Malabanan, Shell V-Power Brand Manager
To qualify for the Shell Outriders Best Bike Club award, nominees should show passion for achieving their goals, exhibit personal and social courage that benefits the riding community, have the mindset to overcome social barriers and support a cause with a spirit of fun and youthfulness.

A screening committee will then evaluate entries and vote for representatives for each of these participating regions: NCR, Northern Luzon, Southern Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. Winners will be announced during the event in September with the grand prize being Php 100,000.00 cash plus Php 50,000.00 worth of fuel vouchers.

Now on its fourth year, Shell Bike Fair 2018 treated riders to a day full of exciting activities: with contests for helmet design and bike modification, on top of fun booth games and freebies sponsored by Shell V-Power, Shell Advance, and other sponsors. To top it off, five brand new motorcycles were given away in a raffle draw.

Celebrity guests like Daiana Menezes and Roxanne Barcelo also entertained the crowd while performances from Rico Blanco and other local bands rocked the night away. Certified motorcycle enthusiast and Shell’s newest brand ambassador Drew Arellano also shared his personal journey as a rider, the challenges that he encounters while on board his bike, safety riding techniques, and how Shell V-Power and Shell Advance served as his road partner throughout filming his travel show “Biyahe ni Drew.”

Be there for the culminating event of Shell Bike Fair 2018 this September 22 at the Philippine International Convention Center. This project is a joint venture of Shell Advance and Shell V-Power, dedicated to empowering solutions for making life’s journeys better and helping motorists outride anything.

Sergio Wielzen banking on ONE Super Series experience against newcomer Rodtang Jitmuangnon

“The promotion is amazing for sure. The way they treat you is at the highest level, so I was really happy. For me, it was a whole different ball game. It was the biggest show I’ve ever been on – and I’ve fought on big shows. I really felt the pressure. He’s been in big shows with big crowds in Thailand before, but he hasn’t been to ONE before. It is the next level. He’s really aggressive. Not so technical, but he pushes forward and tries to lay on the pressure, and he can take shots for sure. I know that I have more power than [Nasukawa] though, so if I can land the same shots, he won’t be able to stand there and take them, especially in the ONE (four-ounce) gloves. He has a style I like. He can come forward, and I will find something unexpected to do at that moment – to make an opening and try to put him down. I will not be fighting for points.” ~Sergio “Samurai” Wielzen, Surinamese Striking Star 

Surinamese striking star Sergio “Samurai” Wielzen is hoping to do much better in his second foray into the heavily-acclaimed ONE Super Series.

In his promotional debut this past May, Wielzen came up short in his bid for the ONE Super Series Muay Thai Flyweight World Championship.

While it did not go as he would have hoped, the Sityodtong Amsterdam-based talent was nothing short of elated for the experience of his maiden performance under the bright lights of ONE Championship.

With a martial arts resume that includes a 46-19-2 professional kickboxing record and two W5 Kickboxing World Championship reigns, Wielzen is definitely no stranger to performing on the big stages.

However, the 30-year-old stalwart admitted that competing on the ONE Super Series stage was unlike anything he has ever experienced in his professional career.

With the debut jitters now behind him, Wielzen hopes to emerge victorious in his return to ONE Super Series against debuting Muay Thai star Rodtang “The Iron Man” Jitmuangnon at ONE: CONQUEST OF HEROES on Saturday, 22 September in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Thailand’s Rodtang, who comes in with a remarkable 252-40-10 Muay Thai standing, may be the more experienced in terms of record, but Wielzen believes that his edge is having already gone through the ONE Super Series experience.

Furthermore, Wielzen knows the caliber of competition that he will be going up against at the Jakarta Convention Center.

Rodtang, after all, is a two-time Omnoi Stadium Muay Thai Champion with over 300 matches to his name.

Wielzen also referenced Rodtang’s most recent setback, a controversial decision against Japanese Muay Thai star Tenshin Nasukawa just this past June.

Looking to work his way back up to another shot at the ONE Super Series Muay Thai Flyweight World Championship, Wielzen made it clear that he will be looking to finish off Rodtang in their highly-anticipated matchup.

Mapúa students enjoy cashless convenience with RCBC MyWallet ID Card

“A big part of the unbanked and underserved market are the college students who do not have their own bank accounts or who are not yet qualified to get their own payment cards. We want to change that and teach them money management and good financial habits, starting with the RCBC MyWallet–Mapúa ID card.” ~Margarita Lopez, Digital Banking Group head

From meeting new friends to learning new things, students have a lot to look forward to as soon as they enter the university. However, much is also expected of this new generation.

As young adults who will soon help grow the country’s economy, it is important that these individuals are educated, empowered, and financially literate. And taking the lead to begin their financial journey, RCBC ties up with Mapúa University to introduce a dual purpose MyWallet–Mapúa ID to all its freshmen students for the upcoming academic year.

The Yuchengco-led bank innovates the typical school ID to double as a prepaid card that students can use to pay for everyday necessities and for transactions inside or outside of Mapúa. This new system will pave the way for both the RCBC and the university to build a digital ecosystem that includes the students. 

The RCBC MyWallet-Mapúa ID card both serves as the students’ admission to the school’s premises as it contains their identification details and as a prepaid card which can be used to pay for their tuition and other school-related purchases. The card also provides parents a more secure way to transfer their child’s allowances, and a means for students to store and build their savings. 

Other students can also enjoy the benefits of a MyWallet Visa Prepaid Card. They simply need to go to any RCBC branch nationwide and fill-out the enrollment form, present a valid ID and pay a P150 fee to start enjoying the convenience of cashless transactions in their school, online shopping and 24/7 online access via RCBC Online Banking.

4 startup entrepreneurs leadership principles

Dr. Marshall Goldsmith (center) joins executive coaches Serely Alcaraz and Dr. Peter Chee for a CEO, HR, and Senior Leaders conference in Manila on October 26, 2018.
The road to business success is one that can be lonely and dreary. The unrelenting passion of entrepreneurs and startup CEOs, while initially beneficial for the organization, can soon become a deterrent to the growth of the business and even its people. And with their current knowledge and skillset, it is inevitable for any startup entrepreneur to seek help in developing and running the business.

According to the world’s leading executive coach and best-selling author, Dr. Marshall Goldsmith, the organizational dysfunction starts when the leader makes all the decisions and everyone else merely accepts them. As much as it is not enabling and maximizing the full potential of the employees, it is also extremely taxing on the top honcho. But that shouldn’t be the case, according to Dr. Goldsmith.

Having trained a number of corporate leaders across the globe, Dr. Goldsmith believes there are certain leadership principles that entrepreneurial leaders and start-up CEOs must adopt for self-improvement and re-assessment towards creating a positive impact on an organization.
  1. Develop an exit strategy. “It is a good exercise to take and think of what you would want to achieve before you exit,” said Dr. Goldsmith. Drawing small and big finish lines help diffuse the pressure of success, especially for startup businesses. By celebrating both small and milestone wins, it motivates the individual to continue to reach for the bigger goal without just banking on the big one.
  2. Be a great client. “30 years ago, no CEO would have admitted wanting or needing to be coached. Coaching has come out of the closet and is something that people are no longer ashamed of,” said Dr. Goldsmith. It is important to understand that through coaching, entrepreneurial leaders are receiving mentoring which is hard to come by in the nature of the business. In the process, they are also creating a learning environment for themselves and their people.
  3. Don’t get lost in logic. “A lot of your suggestions are going to become orders even if you didn’t want them to. I really have to caution people about saying ‘have you thought of this?’ or ‘have you tried that?’ because once you start saying that, they just salute the flag and do it your way,” said. Dr. Goldsmith. He added that success is now defined as how much you can empower others and not how much you can do yourself.
  4. I know less than you do. Most startup businesses are created with intense passion from its founders – knowing the ins and outs of the business more than anyone else. However, as the business starts to grow, the game also changes as more people are hired who know more how to navigate the business landscape. When someone knows more than you do, it’s OK – that’s what the organization is for, it is about being able to lean on each other and working towards the same goals. “You can’t tell a knowledge worker what to do, you have to ask them what to do,” said Dr. Goldsmith.

Dr. Marshall Goldsmith will headline a two-city CEO, HR, and Senior Leaders conference in Asia this October, with Manila as his last stop on October 26, 2018. He will be joined by top coaching gun Dr. Peter Chee, and master trainer and chief coach Serely Alcaraz. The leadership conference is organized by ITD, the global leadership development expert.

Parkway Corporate Center: The Pinnacle of Success

Artist’s perspective of the Parkway Corporate Center, which is strategically located at the heart of Filinvest City, Alabang
Since its historic groundbreaking in 2015, the Parkway Corporate Center, the first office condominium that major developer Filinvest offers, has been steadily reshaping the burgeoning Filinvest City skyline, one level and glass curtain wall at a time. This year, investors and locators alike can finally look forward to the completion and turn-over of this remarkable corporate tower by the fourth quarter of 2018, with construction now almost complete.

This means that investors will soon reap healthy returns on their property investment, with the Parkway Corporate Center being one of the few office developments in the market to offer state-of-the-art units for sale. For locators, they can soon move into their office units—ranging from a flexible 36 square meters all the way to a full floor—as well as enjoy the features and amenities that can catapult your business to world-class status. Additionally, the Parkway Corporate Center, with its impressive design by H1 Architecture and Design, rises apart from the rest with its unrivaled location and cutting-edge facilities.

As a future-ready premium office tower, Parkway Corporate Center offers intelligent space planning and modern building facilities such as six high-speed elevators, 24-hour security with CCTV cameras in strategic areas, 100% back-up power, and an advanced fiber optic backbone. Of note as well as its variable refrigerant flow (VRF) Air-conditioning system, providing consistent cooling comfort, quiet operation, and utmost energy efficiency. Double-glazed low-e glass, on the other hand, helps protect against UV radiation and fading while reflecting heat back, thus ensuring that the interior temperature remains unaffected.

Coupled with this are the numerous standard amenities including an elegant main lobby, a retail plaza at the ground floor, a fully-equipped business center on the 7th level, a podium deck garden, pocket gardens every five levels, plus eight levels of secured parking—all providing convenience in the workplace.

Serving as the home of the Parkway Corporate Center, at the prestigious corner address of Corporate and Parkway Avenues, is Filinvest City, Alabang, a thriving, fully-integrated, and self-contained 244-hectare metropolis that harmonizes modern conveniences with nature—a genuine work-live-play environment that is quickly reinforcing its stature as the ultimate green city that’s in close proximity to the CALABRZON region and just 15 minutes from Makati and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).   

Indeed, the Parkway Corporate Center allows your business to grow with the city, as it is primed for continuous advancement in the Metro South.
