The 5 Commandments of Sharing an Office Space

It's spacious and at the same time it's a nice space to work peacefully without the hustle of a lot of people passing by and having a shower area makes it all different among all the coworker space in Ortigas.

Coworking spaces can be a truly magical place. You get your work done and let your hair down in an open, collaborative, and supportive environment where you share a space with people who likewise share your values or even your goals. But sometimes, all it takes is one person talking a little too loudly or carrying on a little too comfortably, and that magic disappears into thin smoke.

Coworking is based on the principle of sharing a space with others. And for all that coworking offices are all about giving you independence and freedom in your work, this doesn’t mean independence and freedom from basic human decency. So to help keep you from being that guy, we’ve rounded up the 5 rules of sharing office space to ensure your coworking life is a smooth-sailing journey.

I. Thou Shall Use Thy Phone Voice

We all have a phone voice. It’s the voice you unwittingly use when a recruiter calls you and interviews you over the phone, or when your bank rings you to remind you of a missed due date. It’s a soft-spoken, well-modulated voice that says: I’m a professional!
And it’s precisely the kind of voice that you should have when inside coworking spaces. This isn’t to say that you have to treat every conversation like a job interview or an assurance that yes, you’ll be paying your overdrafts as soon as possible, thank you so much for understanding, you’re too kind, but it does help to remember that you’re still in a professional setting and, therefore, expect to act with more than a modicum of professionalism. One of the surest signs that a person is getting too comfortable in their environment is when they start to use their outdoor voice indoors, so just be aware of how loud and rowdy you can sound.

Don’t forget that before anything else, you’re all there to work, so save the shouty, excited chatter for when you and your office friends are not at work

Long story short, you’re sharing an office, you are not the only one there, so keep it down.

II. Thou Shan’t Stink Up The Premises

Look–we totally understand what it’s like to emerge victorious from the apocalypse that is Metro Manila traffic, and we don’t hold it against anyone who happens to carry the scent of that battle with them.

And while it’s completely understandable that you’d want to freshen up before you start your day, be mindful of how scent can carry in an enclosed, air-conditioned space. Have care when you use your perfume or fragrances–or pretty much anything with a strong scent.

That being said, your baon can also be the office’s public enemy number one. No matter what you think, you’re not the only getting a whiff of your grandma’s binagoongan or the karenderya’s adobo. No one wants to smell like a high school cafeteria, and, really, you shouldn’t be eating at your desk anyway. You’re not just leaving behind a strong scent, you’re also leaving crumbs and foodstuffs in your workstation, and a dinner party for the resident vermins. Gross.

III. Thou Shall Take Care of the Amenities

The entire point of coworking spaces like WeRemote is to provide you with a convenient place to work, where all your basic professional needs–and more–are readily met. Workstations are fully-furnished, and supplementary amenities like printers, phones, and other equipment are available for anyone who needs them. The operative term here being anyone who needs them–not just you.

Respect office amenities; don’t hog them for yourself and especially don’t damage them. If you find that you will need certain facilities for a prolonged period of time–say, you need the phone booth for two days for an important meeting–let management know ahead of time so that they can set up a schedule where you can use it for as long as you need, without inconveniencing anyone. Cleaning up as you go is a big factor to consider too since you are using a shared space. Always return things the way you found them.

This applies to every little thing like putting markers back where you found them, returning the chairs to their rightful place, turning off the air conditioning when it’s not being used, or asking around if people are okay with the room temperature being changed.

And if you find that a piece of equipment is damaged, be sure to tell management immediately so that it can be addressed at once. No one signed up for jammed printers and disconnected telephone lines, after all, so it’s everyone’s duty to make sure everything is in working order.

As a good rule of thumb: If you use it, WASH IT, If you spill it, WIPE IT, If you drop it, PICK IT UP! Those coffee mugs ain’t gonna wash, and it’s not fair to people.

These sort of things makes you a decent human being.

IV. Thou Shall Respect Boundaries

Coworking spaces are much more informal than traditional office spaces, and while this is, of course, the entire point of these innovative work areas, sometimes it can lead people to let their guards down just a little bit too much.

The space might be painted in playful colors and murals, and there might be a game room that invites to you to play and not just work, but don’t forget that it is still a workplace, first and foremost. Maintain professional boundaries, even with your closest work friends, while inside the premises. Don’t horse around, or engage in antics that would bother the other workers sharing the space. This means no The Office level pranks, and definitely no harmful jokes and horseplay.

And boundaries aren’t limited to physical boundaries. Emotional and mental boundaries are also in full effect inside office premises. Do not make offensive jokes or comments. Don’t willfully act in a way that makes people uncomfortable, and treat everyone with kindness, or, at the very least, civility.

And if you or anyone you know have encountered harassment or offensive behavior of any kind while in the premises, do not hesitate to report the situation to management. WeRemote has a well-trained staff and HR personnel prepared to deal with complications such as these, and we are committed to ensuring you work safe and feel safe in our environment. Approach any member of the staff, or head straight to reception so we can address situations like these as soon as possible.

V. Thou Just Be Mindful

At the end of the day, the best thing you can do to ensure a harmonious work life in a coworking space is to just be mindful. Be aware of how loud you can be when you speak, and remember to use your indoor voice. Be aware of the scents you carry. Be mindful of shared spaces and amenities, have care with how you use them. Be mindful of how you treat others, and remember to respect boundaries and limitations.

Be aware of what you do and the space you occupy, so that you don’t trod on others. Courtesy is a simple matter of just not being rude, and it starts by being mindful of yourself and your actions.

Coworking can be an incredible experience and opportunity, and all it takes is a few, simple courtesies to ensure that everyone has a great time. It is not actually unheard of to get voted out of a coworking space for being too much! So the next time you work in a coworking space, don’t forget to follow these basic commandments, and you should be good to go.

“Be the person you want to work with”

Idzenga helped set up the Alternative Indigenous Development Foundation, Inc. (AIDFI) in 1992, a non-governmental organization, to address the challenges in agrarian reform areas. He developed and promoted the hydraulic ram pump technology that now provides clean, affordable water to many of these upland communities.

At the forefront of technology with Taiwan Excellence

"Products selected for the Taiwan Excellence Awards serve as shining examples for the domestic industry. Apart from the distinction, these products, and brands are also promoted by the Taiwanese government on many international stages. Taiwan Excellence works to connect people through innovation and excellence, which they can feel in their lives every day." ~Tony Lin, deputy director of the Strategic Marketing Department of the Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA)

With so much innovation to offer, Taiwan, with the help of Taiwan Excellence, is improving lives all over the world. Under its umbrella are companies and brands that provide concrete solutions to real world problems, effectively transforming the dreams of a smart future into reality.

Dubbed as the heart of Asia, Taiwan beats with a fiery passion that attracts many Filipinos. In fact, the number of Filipinos who visited the island republic increased in 2018 by 44.13% from 2017. For some, Taiwan is a food destination and picturesque views. To many others, it is the home of cutting-edge technologies and life-changing innovations. 

Over the past year, Taiwan has grown into a global leader in innovation by supplying solutions to our modern problems. The value they provide is so gigantic that the Taiwanese economy lists global powerhouses such as Google, Apple, Microsoft, and IBM as part of its clientele. It's easy to get lost at the rate Taiwan churns out game-changing products. So, for those who are looking to get the best Taiwan can offer, look for the seal of the Taiwan Excellence Award. 

The Taiwan Excellence Awards covers different products that are used in various sectors such as manufacturing, education, healthcare, transportation, e-commerce, smart living, green energy, and public service.  

Real world innovations
Under its umbrella are companies and brands that provide concrete solutions to real world problems, effectively transforming the dreams of a smart future into reality. 

For one, tech giant Acer has been developing a self-driving car that will usher in a new age in smart transportation. During the project, they partnered with Yulon Group, one of Taiwan's top carmakers. 

In the realm of robotics, there is the TTRobotix's SeaDragon XLR, a remote-controlled robot, and submarine, that can dive 300 meters deep to aid in surveillance, rescue, or marine research. 

Also updating the way we learn in the classroom, Everest Display Inc. boasts its Cloud Touch Projector. Unlike traditional projectors, the device can be used independently with its built-in Android system and a range of unique functions and features. 

Revolutionizing personal hygiene is the Eleclean disinfectant spray, made of 100% pure water with no chemical additives. Housed in a compact device, the water is electrolyzed to create reactive oxygen species that are strong enough to kill most disorder-causing microorganisms, while remaining gentle so that it doesn't cause skin irritation. 

To help people adjust to rising air pollution rates, Edimax created EdiGreen Airbox, a smart air quality detector with temperature and humidity sensors. It accurately measures the levels of harmful miniscule particulate matter present in the air. 

A triumph in the field of smart healthcare is being developed by AmCad Biomed. Their AmCadUT Thyroid Cancer detection machine uses the power of algorithms to automatically classify thyroid tumors. According to Peter Wu, president of AmCad, the machine can analyze whether a tumor is benign or malignant. In addition, it has an average accuracy of 90 percent, 15 to 25 percent higher than that of the most superior experts. 

Unparalleled excellence for the world
With so much innovation to offer, Taiwan, with the help of Taiwan Excellence, is improving lives all over the world. Later this year, Taiwan Excellence will showcase some of its great products for Filipinos to enjoy. 

To experience many other wondrous innovations, Taiwan Excellence is inviting everyone to the Taiwan Expo, which will highlight Taiwan's experience and expertise in various industries such as technology, agriculture, design, medical care, education, and tourism on November 8-9 at the SMX Convention Center, Davao.

OPPO Introduces the Reno2 Series that Helps Redefine Storytelling in the Era of Phoneography

Anyone Is a Storymaker with OPPO’s Videography Powerhouse, the Reno2, and Reno2 F

World-leading smartphone brand OPPO will soon unveil its Reno2 Series in the Philippines, which includes the Reno2 and the Reno2 F, promising to reimagine the limits of users’ creativity by allowing everyone to be a storymaker with ease. The latest iteration of OPPO’s successful Reno series is equipped with a slew of video shoot-enhancing features, including a 48MP quad-camera setup, 20x digital zoom, Ultra Dark Mode feature allowing users to enjoy ultra-clear night shots, and the Ultra Steady Video that lets users take exceptionally clear and smooth videos.

Reno Series Driving Creativity
The OPPO Reno story began with the release of the first Reno Series early this year. The series is tailor-made to empower young creative pioneers who break boundaries to express themselves. To bring that to life, the Reno Collective was formed to inspire budding Filipino artists from different facets of art to create more. The first Reno Collective headliners were composed of Treb Monteras II and Dex Fernandez for visual arts, Daryl & Andre Chang for fashion, and IV of Spades for music.

The upcoming OPPO Reno2 Series will take the vision a step further as it welcomes the emergence of videos becoming the new photos. The new OPPO Reno2 series focuses on the field of phoneography, enabling everyone to be a storymaker as it allows them to share a slice of their daily life creatively. With the Reno2 series, everyone is empowered to tell their own stories with more depth as the new series delivers stellar phoneography features.

Anyone is a Storymaker with the OPPO Reno2 Series
OPPO has always been widely known for being a leader in mobile photography. This time it introduces yet another innovation as it elevates the smartphone phoneography experience with its latest Reno2 series offering. The new Reno2 series will also be the brand’s first-ever handset to feature a quad camera setup. With this innovation, it provides a powerful toolkit for seeing things differently from all viewpoints allowing users to capture remarkable moments in both photos and videos.

The quad camera provides a full focal length imaging system, offering a 20x Digital Zoom, ultra-wide-angle lens, and more. Three lenses of varying focal lengths will work in unison to create a unique 5x Hybrid Zoom effect from ultra-wide angle to telephoto, which will fuse image technology to ensure a smooth and seamless zoom transition. The ultra-wide angle lens will provide an impressive 116° perspective, for a bigger canvas to better express yourself. Additionally, the Reno2 also offers 20x digital zoom - a first in smartphone phoneography; enabling users to capture what’s beyond the unimaginable distance.

The Reno2’s Ultra Dark Mode and Reno2 F’s Ultra Dark Mode 2.0 covers an entire range of different night scenes, including bright city districts and dimly lit country nights to name a few. Even if light levels measure below 1 lux, it can elevate your photos through hardware network-optimized AI noise reduction.

As one of the leaders in Hybrid Image Stabilization technology, the Reno2 Series’ Ultra Steady Video brings exceptionally clear and smooth video shots. Approaching the quality level of purpose-built action camera, the Reno2 Series is able to keep up in capturing moments even in exciting and high-action situations.

Reno2 F on the other hand promises equally stellar photography and phoneography experience with a quad camera that’s equipped with a 48MP Main + 8MP Wide + 2MP Filter + 16MP Front Camera.

The Reno2 is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 730G that guarantees smoother performance that is even boosted with its 8GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage. While the Reno2 F is powered by MediaTek Helio P70 that gives the user a superior smartphone performance that seamlessly work greater with its 8GB of RAM and 128GB of internal capacity. Both units are enhanced with the VOOC 3.0 technology that ensures faster charging time yet longer-lasting use with its 4,000 mAh battery capacity.

OPPO Introduces the OPPO ENCO Q1
Innovation continues as OPPO is also set to unveil its first wireless noise canceling headphones, the OPPO ENCO Q1, together with the Reno2 Series smartphones in the Philippines. The latest addition to the OPPO portfolio takes a bigger leap on technology advancement beyond the handsets.

OPPO ENCO Q1 will enable you to enter into the world of quiet. The noise reduction technology designed by the OPPO acoustics team cancels out all external noise for an uninterrupted listening experience. 3 types of immersive audio effects and up to 22-hour standby time will deliver a full immersive entertainment experience that’s truly unmatched.

The newest Reno2 series and the first-ever OPPO ENCO Q1 will be launched in the Philippines on Oct. 17 and will officially be available in the same month. Further information will be released soon on the price and availability of these products.

Healthy Eating Habits to Develop to Live More and Do More

In reality, people have tendencies to veer away from what's most important to them, and would rather waste money and time on what causes them heavier risks. But then again what could be that is most essential yet difficult to achieve? Body Conditioning is key. Sante as everyone's partner in health provides you ways on how you can fully achieve a healthy lifestyle. 

As the saying goes, health is wealth. For most of us, however, leading a healthier lifestyle can be a challenge, especially in keeping track of diets and developing healthy eating habits that will allow us to live a vigorous and fuller life.

Studies show that Filipinos fail to take the right amount of some nutrients, leading to a greater risk of acquiring chronic diseases, such as arthritis, cardiovascular illnesses like heart attacks and stroke, breast and colon cancer, diabetes, obesity, as well as oral health problems.

A Food and Nutrition Research Institute (FNRI) data revealed that obesity and overweight cases have increased in recent years. Among adults, the prevalence has almost doubled from 16.6 percent in 1993 to 31.1 percent in 2013.

Among preschool children, the prevalence gradually increased to 4.9 percent in 2013 from below 2 percent from 1989 to 1998. In a similar case, the prevalence of obesity among 10 to 19 years old has increased to 8.3 percent in 2003 from 5.8 in 2003.

The consumption of fruits and vegetables has also declined, with an increased intake of meat, eggs, and dairy, which is one of the Top 10 selected indicators for mortality according to the World Health Organization.

To better guide Filipino families in developing healthy food choices, Santé, a provider of premier organic health and wellness products and services, listed down some habits in choosing foods that will benefit our health and well-being—with the prime goal of helping you live more so, you can do more.

  • Consume More Fruits and Vegetables

Most children and a few young at hearts complain about consuming green, leafy vegetables, as well as fruits. But these foods are rich sources of vitamins, minerals, and anti-oxidants. They are also naturally low in fat and, provides a variety of meal palettes.

While some may not enjoy their taste, they provide vital nutrients to our body. Our leafy, yellow, orange, red, and green vegetables can spike our nutrition intake and provide balance to our systems, so it is never too late to include them on your meals. Broccoli, lettuce, tomatoes, and other leafy veggies can also make your health go on a positive turnout.

  • Cut Back on Some Foods

These foods pertain to those often considered as “treats” or “sweets.” They are, mostly, in the form of pleasure foods you are fond of eating, such as cakes, cookies, candies, and ice cream, among others. They can also be attributed to fatty and oily foods, such as ribs, bacon, and hotdogs.

While we enjoy eating these treats, they are usually loaded with oil, fat, and sodium. They are also packed with preservatives, which reduces our chance to absorb the nutrients needed by our bodies.

Take these foods in moderation or better yet, consume them sparingly or occasionally, so as not to indulge yourself in the process and, prevent further health risks.

  • Take More Organic Products

How your food is grown or raised can have a major impact not just on your mental and emotional health, but also to the environment. Organic foods have more beneficial nutrients, such as antioxidants than their conventionally-grown counterparts. If you have allergies to foods, chemicals, and preservatives, consuming organic foods may also help in lessening its symptoms or even going away with them.

Organic vitamins and food supplements can also be an excellent choice for ensuring a healthier lifestyle. For instance, Santé’s products are made, specifically, with organic pure barley from farms, as certified by BioGro, New Zealand’s leading organic certification agency.

Santé offers products that improve the quality of life of people around the world. The company has been providing premier organic health and wellness products and services with Santé Barley at its core. Barley grass is an effective antioxidant, rich with vitamins and minerals that not only detoxifies the body but also, aids in digestive health.

By incorporating healthy food choices into our households, there are more chances of adopting a healthier lifestyle that can benefit your family and loved ones on a long term basis. Not only it will create a ripple of consciousness, but it will also allow them to be active to live more and do more.
