A Primer on Solar: Harness the Sun for Power Savings

Here's another informative issue for all of us. The awareness and push to go green has been greater than ever, thanks to the concentrated efforts of corporations, organizations, and the media. From recycling to using earth-friendly materials to efficient energy consumption, there are now myriad of ways to minimize one’s carbon footprint and save money in the long run.

To do both, one of the more efficient and effective ways is through the use of solar power technology, or photovoltaic panels also called PVs. The said system collects energy from the sun to generate electricity, which can then be used to power a portion of a home or office’s electrical needs.

Solar energy reduces the amount of fossil fuel that is burned, which subsequently reduces the pollutants and CO² that make it to the atmosphere. Depending on the type of system, a complete home or office set-up normally powers select appliances such as lights, air-conditioners, and certain electrical outlets. 

Typically installed on rooftops, solar panels collect DC power and send it to an inverter which then converts it into AC (alternating current) power. The AC power goes from the inverter to the electrical panel, where it now becomes ready to use. Once the solar system produces more power than needed, the meter actually spins backwards. A home or office is still, of course, connected to the utility grid so it can get as much power as it needs outside of what the solar system produces.

Whether for a home or office, the solar system you need must be customized in order to get the best possible performance, which subsequently will bring about the best cost and energy savings as well.

Green Heat (GH), a locally-owned business engaged in the design, installation, and maintenance of solar PV systems, has the right technology, expertise as well as experience to do the job right. Green Heat has been part of numerous large scale projects such as the ADB solar power plant, the Rural Electrification of the Philippine government, and other private installations.

Green Heat uses silicon-powered technology: the world's most dependable solar technology. With over 40 years of demonstrated field performance, silicon modules have continued to outlast and outperform other solar technologies.

Since roofs have limited space for solar modules, GreenHeat’s panels have higher module efficiencies. This means each panel works better in absorbing energy. Moreover, GH’s panels have “Enhanced weak light performance,” where the solar glass ensure that the panels perform well under real world, low light conditions.

GH’s panels are also low-maintenance since they have “self cleaning” technology where a
 special layer in the high quality solar glass of the modules causes water to run off more quickly, thereby enabling the glass to clean itself of dust and dirt.

Solar PV panels are, of course, just a part of the entire system. As the saying goes, “You’re only as strong as your weakest link.” In solar PV technology, the rest of the system has to be just as efficient and reliable; otherwise the best panels won’t give you the ideal return of investment.

This is something that Green Heat can do for its customers. By providing a turn-key service, Green Heat provides clients a complete assessment of their solar energy requirements during the proposal stage that cover system design and cost. Once the go signal is given by the client, GH executes the design plan and turns over the system after a series of tests. With a one-year after sales warranty, clients can be assured that their solar PV set-up will be a reliable one.

So if you’re looking to the future of energy, start today with solar PV technology. It’s an investment that goes a long way in saving you money, and the environment.

A celebration of renewal from Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre!!!

Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre celebrates the personal battles won and healthier lifestyle gained by the Cohen graduates with Re: New Me 2012.

Carrying the theme “Fit for the Red Carpet”, the event celebrates the successful transformation of the Cohen Program graduates through a fashion show and photo exhibit that showcase their new fit and slimmer bodies as well as their renewed, healthier lifestyle. Likewise, the event brings together the entire Cohen community– from graduates, non-graduates, medical professionals, and health and wellness advocates alike. 

     According to Barbara Young, CEO of Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre, the fashion-inspired event is dedicated to the graduates of the Cohen program. “These incredible men and women have successfully lost weight, which may be impossible to some. This achievement is worth recognizing because they not only gained confidence from having bodies worthy of being seen in the red carpet, but more importantly, they acquired new outlooks in life after overcoming their weight and health issues. This is their time to shine,” say Young.

     The Cohen Program was formulated by Dr. Rami Cohen, MD, a specialist renowned for his research on hormones involved in obesity and weight loss. It is based on internationally-accepted medical research with thousands of success stories worldwide. 

With the Cohen Program, Dr. Cohen personally develops individually-tailored Eating Plan. Each plan is based on a person’s unique body chemistry. This personalized eating plan is designed to trigger the body’s natural ability to shed off fat rapidly and safely and bring their hormones back in balance.

No two Eating Plans are the same. The essential formula is the specific quantity and combination of food unique to each person. And only by following the program precisely can one allow their body to correct its chemical imbalance naturally.

Another unique offer of Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre is the establishment of a Cohen Community– graduates who have successfully completed the Cohen Program and non-graduates who are still on the journey to healthier body and lifestyle. Both share a similar experience of what it feels like having gone through a challenging ordeal. Hence, they build a support system that encourages and inspires each other to persevere and stay on the program.

     “Completing the Cohen program requires discipline and patience. This is why we established the Cohen Community– to provide our clients who are undergoing the program the support and encouragement from people who have gone through the same program and understand the challenges that they face,” adds Young.

Re: New Me 2012 is presented by Splenda and sponsored by Mosvit, Other sponsors include Ayala Land Premier, Lady’s Choice MayoLite, Pond’s, Pioneer Life Insurance, and Bulla Lite n’ Healthy Yogurt.

The Cohen program is exclusively offered in the Philippines at the Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre. To know more, visit the Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre Philippines at Suite 1006, 10th Floor Medical Plaza Makati Building, Amorsolo cor. de la Rosa Streets, Legaspi Village, Makati City.  You may also log on to or email or call 502-1090, 501-5237.

Alden Richard’s best look!!!

After the hits teleserye One True Love, GMA Artist Center talent Alden Richards now takes on a new challenge. He was recently part of the Cosmopolitan Bachelor Bash 2012. But along with his boyish good looks came a lot of hard work and preparation. Because as we all know, failure to prepare is preparing to fail.

Physically, his aim was to be the best-looking Alden Richards his fans could be truly proud of. His trainer’s goal for him was to lose excess fat, beef up his upper body, and maintain good posture. This was achieved through a rigorous daily routine of 15-20 minutes of jumping rope as often as he can, even in-between taping schedules.

Aside from that, he made sure to incorporate 20-30 minutes of running in his routine for additional cardio. To develop core strength and fitness, Alden supplemented his workout routine with abdominal exercises. This includes 20-30 reps of hanging leg raises, abdominal rollers, ball crunches, planks, pikes and side bends. 

Months prior to the event, his personal trainer and nutritionist limited Alden to a calorie intake of only 3,100 kCal per day. This meant that he had to eat 5-6 small meals per day, spread out over 2-3 hour intervals. This diet was not only about losing weight but also being healthy. A complete balance of protein, carbohydrates, fruits and fiber was recommended, while at the same time avoiding soda, ice tea, and salty chips. This diet also required him to stay hydrated throughout the day. But to make things fun, he was allowed one “cheat day” to eat anything he wanted. Because he wanted to stick to his new lifestyle, he made a conscious effort to stick to only one cheat day per week. This was quite a sacrifice for the young actor, but he discovered that it was well worth it when droves of fans cheered for him at the Cosmo Bachelor Bash.

Alden is committed, passionate, and disciplined in anything that he does. It not only shows through his breakthrough roles and performances, but in every aspect of his life.

Catch more of Alden Richards in GMA’s upcoming teleseryes, Party Pilipinas, and follow his tweets @aldenrichards02.

“BIKTIMA” on September 19 na!!!

Two of Philippine’s cinema most reliable Cesar Montano and Angel Aquino combine forces with a young and passionate director, RD Alba in a movie that you should not miss. “Biktima”, a dramatic thriller movie that will hits theater on September 19.

Shot entirely in picturesque yet perilous Bohol – which also happens to be the male lead‘s hometown, Biktima zeroes in on the travails of a female TV reporter  (Angel Aquino) who wants to make something else outside of her being a wife and mother. As a news journalist for a local TV channel, Alice de la Cruz (Angel’s character) sets off on a dangerous trek to the island of Kamandao in Bohol against her husband Mark’s (Cesar Montano) warning.

From left; Direk RD Alba, Cesar Montano, Angel Aquino, Mercedes Cabral and Philip Anthony.

In the midst of an attack by insurgents, Alice is believed to have died in the ambush with her fellow reporters. Devastated and left to care for their son, Alice’s husband Mark turns to the former’s best friend Sandra (Mercedes Cabral) for solace and love.
Things seem to have gone back to normal for Mark and Sandra until Alice is found alive after six months, her memory almost totally erased. Husband and wife get back together but then the missing pieces of what happened in the months that she disappeared fall into place and this triggers psychological scars to unravel and gradually erupt into an explosive crescendo.

Cesar, who has worked earlier with Biktima’s director RD Alba in the much awarded Panaghoy sa Suba (2004) which the actor himself headlined and helmed (RD was credited as associate producer of Panaghoy), welcomes the chance to work with his old friend. “He knows what he is doing. He is sure about his vision for the movie and masarap siyang katrabaho,” says Cesar of Direk RD who with Biktima gets to direct his first full-length feature film. And it was distributed by Star Cinema, Production.

Direk RD is just as honored to be working with such an intense and commited performer as Cesar who waived his talent fee for Biktima. “Cesar has always been a generous actor, a creative worker, a true-blue artist.” says Direk RD who is just as awed by his lead actress Angel (Aquino). “She is amazing in this movie,” adds Direk RD. “She has a difficult part and she really gave it her all.”

In an age when psychological thrillers come few and far in between, Biktima is one film event that should not be missed. Also lending gravitas to the story of love and marriage at a time of rebellion are Cesar’s real-life wife Sunshine Cruz, actor-director Ricky Davao and British-born actor Philip Anthony.

More life with Watsons

Meet the newest Watsons ambassadors and they share what they value & how they found great value in Watsons.

A Mother’s Unconditional Love

Christine Jacob-Sandejas quips, “My family is really my life. It gives me joy to take care of my husband and five kids – keeping all of us healthy is a top priority. It’s a reality though that healthcare is rather expensive especially with a fairly big family such as ours. It’s good to know that we now have more choices when it comes to branded and generic medicines like what Watsons is offering.”

When it’s My Turn to Take Care of My Parents

As Venus Raj, Miss Universe 2010 runner-up recalls “We were really hard up before. When we were kids my mom would do multiple jobs to support our family. And Nanay has been there for us all the time - raising us and keeping us in good health. Pipilitin nya kami to drink our medicines as required - on time and after meals.  Now that I am able to provide for her, I make sure she gets the best care possible especially with her maintenance medications. I value my mom’s health that’s why I want her to live a longer life and have more time with our family. Ako naman ang mag-aalaga sa kanya.”

Love for Myself

Since becoming a runner-up at the Miss Universe 2010, Venus Raj’s has become very occupied with the many facets of her new life - a beauty queen, a morning show host, an endorser and a daughter. And when the time to rest comes, she makes sure she gets to do the things she loves, too, like pampering herself with wellness activities.

Busy as a bee, Venus says, “Since I became Ms. Universe runner-up, life has never been the same. I got more than what I prayed and worked hard for.  And now sabi ko sa sarili ko, no matter what I do, I would still think that there is no limit to what I can achieve. And dami ko pang gustong gawin at ma-achieve for me and my family kaya I really have to take care of myself.”

For the One Who Means the World To Me

As head of every family and home, husbands and fathers are partners in home building and not just providers. Behind every man’s success is a woman who encourages and inspires. She is every man’s partner in the shaping of a happy home where dreams see fruition.

“To a woman like my wife (Christine Jacob-Sandejas), only the best lang talaga. We’ve been married for 12 years – Christine has supported me in all the ups and downs, and gave birth to our five great kids. In turn, of course I want to make sure that she is in top shape. It really amazes me how she is always ready to do different activities with me & the kids everyday! Christine takes care of everyone so I take care of her naman. She means the world to me,” gushed Paco Sandejas, loving husband to celebrity mom, Christine Jacob-Sandejas.
