NatGeo premieres first-ever fully scripted series GENIUS tonight at 8PM

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PREMIERES FIRST-EVER FULLY SCRIPTED SERIES GENIUS​

FOX and National Geographic bring history to life with the launch of an original, fully scripted mini-series event exploring the 'man behind the mind' – Albert Einstein.

Genius premieres in the Philippines on Wednesday, April 26 at 8 p.m. on National Geographic​

Although his scientific achievements still inspire awe,
few know the full story of the 20th century's most brilliant icon Albert Einstein. National Geographic's new 10-part series GENIUS – the channel's first fully scripted series – explores Einstein's extraordinary professional achievements along with his passionate and complex personal relationships. The mini-series arrives in the Philippines, premiering on National Geographic on Wednesday, April 26, in the Philippines at 8 p.m.

With GENIUS, National Geographic is taking a revolutionary step to becoming an original content creator, ready for battle on the scripted TV landscape. GENIUS follows Einstein's journey from an imaginative thinker of humble origins, to fleeing the Nazis during World War II, to attaining global celebrity status for his scientific endeavors. National Geographic's first-ever fully scripted series reveals the untold story of the man behind the mind, delving into Einstein's happiness and heartbreak as he struggles to be a husband, a father, and a man of principle. Entertaining as well as educational, GENIUS will help viewers learn more about how Einstein unlocked the mysteries of the cosmos in a significant historical era spanning two World Wars.

A start-studded cast and behind-the-camera team join GENIUS. The fully scripted series stars world-famous Oscar-winner Geoffrey Rush (The King's Speech, Pirates of the Caribbean) as Einstein, while prestigious English actress Emily Watson (War Horse, The Theory of Everything) plays Einstein's second wife. The GENIUS executive production team includes the multi Oscar-winning team of Ron Howard and Brian Grazer; and Howard also makes his scripted television directorial debut with the first episode of GENIUS. Other GENIUS stars include familiar faces from Game of Thrones, Grey's Anatomy, Mad Men and more.

 The series begins in Einstein's teenage years, when he argues with his father and drops out of school in Germany to go to University in Switzerland. Einstein encounters romance, political drama and unexpected personal struggles, but he manages to make a name for himself as a rising scientific mind. As relief at the end of World War I turns to fear at Europe's rising tide of anti-Semitism, Einstein seeks sanctuary in the United States. Here, he struggles to balance his identity as a lifelong pacifist and a remarkably talented scientist who is the only one in the world potentially capable of stopping the rise of Hitler.

Lucien Harrington, SVP of Marketing & Communications for FOX Networks Group in Asia, says, "GENIUS is an evolution of National Geographic programing. Already the global leader in premium science, adventure and exploration programing, National Geographic is now firmly establishing itself as an original content creator bringing the best in education and entertainment to audiences in Asia and around the globe. We are delivering on the National Geographic renewed vision to take people one step to the edge of impossible and then, further. GENIUS is not only a global mini-series entertainment event – it is also a brand new way for National Geographic audiences to explore the past and learn the truth behind the legend of famous historical figures like Albert Einstein."

 

The "Everyday Genius" Contest

"I have no special talents, I am only passionately curious." – Albert Einstein

 Are geniuses born or made? Was Einstein destined from birth to become a brilliant scientist, or was his genius all down to hard work? To commemorate the launch of GENIUS, National Geographic is challenging viewers across Asia to harness the power of their minds and accelerate their genius.

 Join the "Everyday Genius" contest by submitting your brilliant ideas – the ones that could solve an everyday problem, and the ones that could change the world – for your chance to win exclusive access to the National Geographic Explorers Festival in Washington D.C across June 15-18, 2017. This exciting annual event brings together the world's most fascinating and innovative scientists, conservationists, explorers, and storytellers together in one place to share their latest discoveries and ideas.

 Find inspiration for your entry in the long history of innovation in Asia; from silk cloth, to the umbrella, to the magnetic compass, to gunpowder and more. Visit www.everydaygenius.asia for more information and to submit your ideas from now till May 7, 2017. Vote on who you think should be named Asia's "Everyday Genius" from May 12, 2017.

 GENIUS is a National Geographic original scripted series produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, Imagine Television and OddLot Entertainment. National Geographic is also partnering with the SNOW app, where users can use the face filter to look like Einstein.

 In the Philippines, the series will premiere at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, April 26.

Big Dome lights blue for autism awareness

Just like the Empire State Building in New York, the CN Tower in Canada, the Sydney Opera House in Australia, and even Niagara Falls, the Philippines' iconic entertainment and sports landmark fondly called the Big Dome has been lit up blue for a good cause.

On April 3, the Smart Araneta Coliseum's main gate was lit blue in line with the global campaign to support World Autism Awareness Day (April 2 in the US), declared by the United Nations. With April being the World Autism Awareness Month, the "Big Dome Lights Blue" project supports the global autism community – a symbolic gesture behind a bigger aim to promote awareness, acceptance and inclusion of people with autism. 

"Big Dome Lights Blue" was a joint effort of the Araneta Center, Inc., the Smart Araneta Coliseum, and the J. Amado Araneta Foundation, Inc. (JAAF), in partnership with the Philippine Associate for Citizens with Developmental and Learning Disabilities, Inc. (PACDLD). Prior to the ceremonial lighting of the Big Dome's main gate, PACDLD held its first-ever Autism Advocate Awards at the Gateway Gallery on the 5th level of Gateway Tower, in recognition of several medical professionals and parents that have made advances and contributions to Autism Awareness and Advocacy in the Philippines.

A short program followed at the gate of the Smart Araneta Coliseum. PACDLD co-founder Ms. Felicite Jean Gonzales said a few words, and introduced special guest Mr. Rizalio Sanchesz, the Chief of Information, Education and Communications Division of the National Council on Disability Affairs, who also delivered a message of gratitude for the "Big Dome Lights Blue" effort. 
Before the Big Dome was bathed in blue lights, a handful of children with autism and other learning disabilities, collectively called Kontra Gapi Plus, performed using Filipino ethnic instruments. Trained in art and performance by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), the wonderful kids showed the audience that no disabilities could hamper their leading productive and creative lives. Their joyful performance and demeanor onstage proved an inspiration to all. 

"We are proud to support this global awareness movement and the advocacy of acceptance of people living with autism," noted Ms. Diane Romero, the Executive Director of JAAF, in her speech during the event. "Our founder, Don Amado Araneta, has always envisioned the Center to be a place that welcomes all, and our participation here signifies our commitment to his vision. Today, we light up the main entrance of the Big Dome blue to signify our belief that we can be partners to tireless groups like the PACDLD  and the Autism Advocate Awardees in the movement towards acceptance, appreciation and protection of children and individuals living with autism and other learning disabilities."
 "Big Dome Lights Blue" is just one of the CSR activities of the Araneta Group in support of autism awareness. Future plans include activities in partnership with groups like PACDLD in disseminating information on autism, holding art and crafts workshops for kids with autism, and training frontliners in recognizing and giving proper response to people with autism. 


The 1st AUTISM ADVOCATE AWARDS, April 3, 2017 PACDLD gives recognition to several medical professionals and parents that have made advances and contributions to Autism Awareness and Advocacy in the Philippines. In the Professional Category, awardees included Dr. Cornelio Banaag Sr., MD, known as the country's "Father of Child Psychology"; Dr. Lourdes Carandang, PhD, one of the country's foremost clinical psychologists; and Dr. Mutya San Agustin, MD, the founding president of the Philippine Ambulatory Pediatric Association; among others. In the Parents Category, among the recipients were Leticia Buhay, founder of the Maria Lena Buhay Memorial Foundation; and the late Benjamin De Ocampo, who spearheaded the Special Olympics for children with autism and other disabilities that began in 1984.

Finally, I got the time to write about my annual visit at the Philippine Hot Air Balloon Fiesta, this year 2017, they are on its 21st year,  grabe sobra tagal na nila, there were a lot of rumors that this year might be the last event, but I did some research and there's a news write up and said that they will transfer to a new venue, in order to give way to the construction of a new hangar from the old venue, there are also news that the event is causing delays of some flights in Clark airport, but the news report says that according to an interview from the organizers that there are no ongoing flights whenever there are scheduled hot air balloon flights in the morning. So its impossible to say that the event is causing delays of any commercial flights.

MANG INASAL: What do Chefs Sandy Daza, Boy Logro and Rosebud Benitez have in common?

Wow! my cooking masters are in one pic!

Leave it to chefs to know what's really good and delicious.

When it comes to Filipinos' beloved halo-halo, Chefs Sandy Daza, Boy Logro and Rosebud Benitez can agree on one thing: they love Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo-Halo.

The three celebrated chefs had the special opportunity to taste the popular and well-loved Mang Inasal Pinoy Halo-Halo which is known for its creamy sarap goodness.

The verdict? Expert-approved.

The 'secret' is in the creamy milk made especially for Mang Inasal. It's not too sweet and definitely not bland too. It has the right level of creaminess which deliciously brings together all the ingredients so each spoonful of halo-halo just hits the spot.

Watch this video - https://www.facebook.com/MangInasalPhilippines/videos/1705340526146435/
