Join the BiotechTOONS contest

Professional and amateur Filipino cartoonists are urged to take part in “BiotechTOONS: A Contest for Cartoonists on Biotechnology” organized by the International Service for the Acquisition of Agri-biotech Applications (ISAAA) and the Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture – Biotechnology Information Center (SEARCA BIC) in collaboration with the Philippine International Cartoons, Comics, and Animation (PICCA), Inc.

BiotechTOONS centers on the theme “The Benefits and Potentials of Crop Biotechnology”. Cartoonist-participants are to portray the scientifically documented benefits of modern biotechnology in original, hand-drawn editorial cartoons. The entries may also be based on existing studies about the potential benefits, products and impact of applying modern biotechnology in agriculture. In the Philippines, the promising technologies nearing commercialization for farmers are the fruit and shoot borer resistant Bt eggplant, delayed ripening virus resistant papaya, vitamin-A enriched rice, and Bt cotton.

The contest has two categories: professional and amateur. Professional cartoonists are practicing cartoonists who may be affiliated with media networks and/or any professional organizations. Amateur cartoonists could be students, non-professionals or professionals who consider the art of creating cartoons as a hobby. The contestant will choose the category that he or she will enter.

Entries will be accepted on or before November 7, 2011. The winning and selected artworks will be displayed on November 21-26, 2011 as part of the exhibit of the 7th National Biotechnology Week at the Department of Environment and Natural Resources, Quezon City.

Plaques and cash prizes of Php 50,000, Php 30,000, and Php 20,000 await the top three winners for the professional level. First, second, and third placers for the amateur level will receive corresponding cash prizes of Php25,000, Php15,000, and Php10,000.

Bourgy D. Langit, the kid DJ in Pinas FM95.5

An awesome kid named Bourgy Langit amazed me with his wit, talent and spontaneity as a youngster disc jockey.  He is now making waves in the musical industry as the voice of “Bulilit ng Pinas” in one of the recognized FM radio stations in Metro Manila – PINAS FM95.5!
DJ Bourgy and mentor DJ Raymond Stone in the premier night of Dolphin Tale
When I first heard him, I asked whose child is that. He seemed to be studying in International School or in a private school with his diction, pronunciation and talent in his impromptu discussion with his mentor DJ Raymond Stone live on-air.

DJ Bourgy has no regular schedule in the station but appear when he is available on either Saturday or Sunday. Education is still his top priority! According to him, he loves to greet someone on-air to make the listeners happy so that their heart will be good or healthy. How sweet to know that a Grade III child in his elementary years at New Era Public School would love to become a DJ for a simple reason of making people happy! That sounds to me a manifestation of a great heart and mind of a boy like him.

I can sense also his natural appreciation for music, hosting and even in promoting tourism in the Philippines. The way he lively sang together with DJ Raymond Stone; and sang enjoyably in his seat while the guest performer Mike Chan sang out loud live the “21 Guns” was so enjoyable to see and hear!
Deliberately, Bourgy smiled to me and encouraged foreigners and balikbayans to visit Philippines because of the many tourist spots and landmarks like:
  • Underground River in Palawan
  • The Shipwreck and several diving sites in Palawan specially in Coron
  • Banol Beach
  • Coron Island, the Sleeping Giant
  • Hundred Islands in Pangasinan
  • Calauit Island Safari
  • Ocean Park in Manila
  • Luneta where you can see Jose Rizal’s Monument
By the way, Bourgy’s father is an Overseas Filipino working in Singapore and his mother Lenny is a native of Coron, Palawan and so the child’s positive reception to these travel sites can be felt. Bourgy is also a loving little brother of Tara who he always addressed on air as “Tara, the writer.”

    “Mr DJ, can I make a request?
    Puwede ba 'yung love song ko?
    Mr DJ, para sa 'kin ito
    Sana ay okay sa iyo

    Hihintayin ko
    Na patugtugin mo
    Thank you ulit sa iyo

    Kahit luma na ang aming awit
    Nais pa ring marinig
    Kahit man lang sa aking alaala
    Ay makasama ko siya

    Feel your Pinoy Music @ Pinas FM95.5

    “If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. 
    I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.”   
                                                        - Albert Einstein

    If Einstein thought this way, for me, life without music  is like a journey of no existence.

    In this note, did you ever miss the Philippines radio station with the slogan “Feel Your Music!”?
    Pinas FM 95.5 logo

    The classic and original FM radio station formerly known as DWDM is back in the airwaves with the new brand “PINAS FM 95.5" (pronounced as ninety five five), ang Pambansang FM (The national FM) with adult contemporary, Original Pilipino Music (OPM) and Folk Rock and Country (FRC) music format.

    Excited with Pinas FM 95.5 return, I followed their soft launch this year on May 16 and grand blast-off on August 6.

    The disc jockeys go live with their great voice, varied genre of music as scheduled, plus their jokes and multitude of stories coupled with good values of Filipinos today. The radio frequency is 95.5 MHz, a channel where you can feel your Pinoy songs because they consistently play OPMs especially in their Saturday‘s Halo-halo program.  This station is well supported by Pinoy artists.

    On June this year, the station was awarded with a Plaque of Recognition and Commendation by the Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit for constantly promoting OPM and faithful patronage of Executive Order No. 255. This EO was promulgated since July 25, 1987 as a directive of late President Corazon Aquino mandating all radio stations with musical format programs to broadcast a minimum of four original Pilipino musical compositions in every clock hour. This is to ensure the growth of the local music among other significant objectives. The organization of Pinoy musical artists is headed by Ogie Alcasid and continues to encourage all radio stations to follow this mandate.

    Pinas FM 95.5 is the flagship and commercial FM radio station of Eagle Broadcasting Corporation. The station’s studio is located at #9 Central Avenue, Barangay New Era, Quezon City, Philippines and its transmitter location at Commonwealth Avenue, Quezon City.
