SMOKE-FREE PHILIPPINES is to RAISE TOBACCO TAX



The speakers: Kaloi Garcia, Jo-Ann Latuja Diosana, Yasmin Mapua-Tang and Antonio Dans

To encourage more tobacco users to quit the government should implement high tobacco taxes. Same thing with the Smoke-Free Philippines coalition groups aim is to raise awareness about the tobacco tax and to increase cigarette taxes.



I just read last year that, according to the Global Adult Tobacco Survey, the Philippines (GATS), more than 17 million adult Filipinos smoke cigarettes. Almost half of adult males and 9 percent (2.8 million) of adult females are current smokers. Moreover, 23 percent of Filipino adults - 38 percent of men and 7 percent of women - are daily tobacco smokers. The Tobacco Atlas notes that tobacco causes 19.6 percent of adult male deaths and 9.4 percent of adult female deaths – higher than the average in other middle-income countries. It is estimated that more than 71,850 Filipinos - eight people every hour - are killed by tobacco-related diseases every year. The Philippine Cancer Society estimates that around 3,000 non-smoking adult Filipinos die every year of lung cancer as a result of inhaling second-hand smoke.


When cigarettes are taxed at different rates based upon the size of the stick, the formulation of the product, or whether the producer is local or multinational, the tobacco industry can employ tactics to promote the continued use of existing products or to encourage people to switch to lower taxed products. The industry’s only goal is to sustain tobacco consumption and protect its profits, in opposition to governmental goals of reducing smoking prevalence and improving health.



If you want to protect your family, you should stop smoking. To know more about Smoke-Free Philippines follow their link to website: http://smokefree.ph/ and facebook: SmokeFreePh

TIPS ON HOW TO STYLE UP ATHLEISURE GAME THESE HOLIDAYS


Christmas  is here again and as early as now, I already schedule my jam-packed activities like holiday shopping, reunions, attending different events, and Christmas parties. Despite the busy days ahead, I will  make sure that my OOTD is still on point.  Now, if you want to look on-trend and be comfy at the same time, your best bet is to go with the athleisure look. Below, we’ve  rounded up some fresh tips on how to style up your athleisure game these holidays based on the hottest trends out there.

1) Do some color blocking

Womens – Bob Squad Double Dare (Php3590)

Mens – Go run 600 (Php 3995)

One thing that you should remember about color blocking is that you should never overdo it. Select two to three hues that you’ll work on and that’s it! Best to pick solid colored track pants to make you look sporty in a snap. Pair with the pants a solid colored top as well. Don’t forget to make the look sportier by donning a pair of Skechers Sport GORun or BOBS Squad Double Dare—chic from the gym to the streets, both are made from lightweight, flexible materials to keep you looking and feeling awesome.

2) Throw it back to the ‘90s with a windbreaker or cropped sweatshirt
 
Mens – Elite Flex Hartnell (Php 3795), Womens – Bob Squad Double Dare (Php 3590)
Nothing says retro sport style quite like the windbreakers and sweatshirts from the ‘90s. And now that ‘90s trends have made a resurgence, you can get that vintage stuff out of the closet and wear it loud and proud. Of course, these athletic-inspired items are best paired with equally sporty shoes. For the gents, we suggest you go for the Skechers Elite Flex Hartnell. Meanwhile, for the ladies, choose the BOBS Sport Squad that are minimalist enough to pair easily with a variety pieces.

3) Don’t be afraid to mix gym clothes with your favorite casual pieces
 
Go Run Mojo (Php 3995)

The easiest way to style up and add interest to your athletic wear is to mix and match it with your favorite casual pieces. For example, you can pair your track pants or leggings with dressier items such as a midriff-baring top for the ladies, and a denim jacket for the gents. Maintain the athleisure vibe by wearing your fave Skechers Sports Pair: a sleek GORun Mojo or the knitted Elite Flex Hartnell. Both pairs feature a well-cushioned, lightweight feel that will get you  from a quick cardio session to chill dinner, to  a night of dancing!
