Science Circus: Step Right Up! is the 5th traveling exhibition of The Mind Museum,  supported in part by Mastercard, Limkaco Industries, Uratex, and Thompson Hardware and Lighting Center.

The Science Circus: Step Right Up! showcases the amusing, the peculiar, and the extraordinary in our everyday experiences, in the form of interactive exhibits that deceive the senses and boggle the mind.

04-automata-circus-performers

 

While the nearly 250-year history of the circus abounds with awe-inspiring demonstrations of physical skill – such as high-flying aerial artists, to death-defying daredevils – the Science Circus challenges our traditional notions of a circus by focusing on the mind’s “acrobatic” perceptual tricks.  

As the guests enter the exhibition, they are welcomed by a festive, colorful façade which sets the tone for the sights and sounds they are about to experience. These interactive exhibits are displayed simultaneously in three adjacent Rings. Guests can go in any of the Rings in the order they please.

10_The 3 Rings of the Science Circus.JPG

Ring One, or Deception Perception is a menagerie of exhibits that will prompt you to question whether to see is to believe. Can you always trust your senses? Is what you see as real as it seems? Can your brain produce motion where there is none? Your first venture into the Circus will unveil the “blindness” of your mind’s eye.

Ring Two highlights Pieces of Incredible Engineering, where guests can engage their minds in puzzles and relish how math and art come together. This central area is animated by simple machines, and engages guests in activities that evoke their inner engineer.

Last but not least, Ring Three is Encounters with the Masters, where guests can interact with and learn the secrets of the Masters of Illusion. They can take on the challenges posed by each Master, and discover how our brains can be ensnared by smoke and mirrors.

Visit the Science Circus: Step Right Up! exhibition right now for another wonderful ride through the world of Science! To make it even more enticing, a special treat awaits!

Together with Mastercard, The Mind Museum offers something enticing for visitors! Use your Mastercard and avail of a 3+1 treat to any admission ticket to the Museum or its special exhibitions. See posters for full details. Until December 30, 2016 only. 

The Science Circus: Step Right Up! exhibition vividly illustrates how our everyday experiences are full of delightful secrets that we can uncover, to discover more about ourselves and the world around us.  Let’s all have fun together! See you there!

Sleep Your Way to Good Health

received_10208724043353770

Sleep is the most underestimated activity. Most of us see sleep only as a means to rest and would easily give up sleep in order to stretch our day. In fact sleep is vital in achieving good health.

Understanding the importance of sleep, LifeScience Center for Health and Wellness introduces its signature Sleep Analysis and Consultation. The analysis and consultation is geared towards helping individuals sleep their way to good health.
“Most of us take sleep for granted and don’t fully realize how sleep impacts our well-being,” says Dr. Denise Lavilles of LifeScience Center for Health and Wellness. “Beyond getting our body to rest and regain physical strength, quality sleep supports mental and physical health, and affects quality of life. How we feel and perform throughout the day is affected by how well we slept. It is during sleep when our body is working to support vital functions of the brain and organs. Sleep also helps our cells regenerate,” added Lavilles.

Sleep deprivation affects us physically and mentally. Lack of quality sleep makes us feel constantly tired, less productive, moody, react slower, making us prone to mistakes and accidents. Mentally, it affects our cognitive function, making us unable to properly focus and retain information. Our risk for chronic disease also increases with chronic sleep deprivation.

“Because of being constantly sleep deprived, having a restful sleep eventually becomes a challenge and may lead to unhealthy habits and dependency on sleeping pills. But sleep issues can be addressed.” says Lavilles.
The LifeScience Sleep Analysis and Consultation tackles sleep issues through a multi-disciplinary, scientific and proactive approach. “It is vital to recognize the basic underlying factors affecting and causing sleep problems, in order to determine the appropriate steps needed to sleep better. We cannot simply just keep treating the symptoms. Sleeping pills, for example, may help for a brief period of time and under a doctor’s supervision. However, insomnia cannot be cured with sleeping pills alone. They can actually make insomnia worse in the long run. Sleep is such a dynamic and relational process – it has to be understood in relation to everything else.”

“As unique individuals, sleep issues can be caused by so many things, such as occupational and lifestyle factors, as well as physiologic and biologic alterations, like hormone changes and nutrient deficiencies. Because of the varying influences and types of sleep disorders, a personalized and comprehensive approach is key in addressing sleep issues down to root cause,” stressed Lavilles.

The first step is to find out more about the individual during and beyond his sleep through traditional and advanced methods such as comprehensive history taking, actigraphy, heart rate variability, 24-hour salivary cortisol/melatonin, nutrient and metabolic profiling. Once this information is available, your Physician will map-out a treatment plan that lets you fully understand what issues affect your sleep. A more thorough understanding of how your body works empowers you to be more involved in getting your restful sleep back.

Mekeni: 30 Years of Uplifting Filipino Lives

“A person’s measurement of success is not by how much money he has but by how much the same success affects other people. You cannot only look at your own success but also see that others around you succeed too. Then you can say that you have succeeded in life.” These are the words of Tatay Felix Garcia, founder of Mekeni Food Corporation.

For those who have seen the havoc wreaked upon by the eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in 1991 it was devastatingly clear how Porac, Pampanga was almost wiped off the Philippine map. So creating jobs in the lahar-stricken town seemed like a crazy idea to most people. But Tatay Felix and Imang Meding Garcia weren’t most people. They believed in sharing hope and creating a spark in the darkest moment of their lives. That spark ignited a light for the people of barrio Balubad, and transformed what was then an ashen ghost town into the thriving community that it is today. What they started 30 years ago is now being continued by their children and grandchildren.

More than producing world-class quality food products that continues to bring honor to the country, Mekeni Food Corporation is remembered and recognized as a Filipino family-oriented company that offered employment opportunities to the lesser privileged which contributed in building a happy, committed and productive community despite the major calamity.

Mekeni lives up to its name of always being open and welcoming. Through the years, they have gladly welcomed both challenges and opportunities, relying on their faith in their people and an even stronger faith in God. So whenever awards and recognitions are accorded to Mekeni, it is not only the company that takes pride in its own achievements but also the whole community shares in the joy and honor given. Because Mekeni believes that their best asset are the people who stick with them through thick and thin.

Now celebrating their 30th Year with the theme “30 Years of Uplifting Filipino Lives”, Mekeni continues its mission to provide employment opportunities and contribute to the improvement of life within and beyond the community.

In their recent thanksgiving celebration, Mekeni did not only celebrate their milestones, but also celebrated their employees’ achievements. Promoting the value of the 5Rs in their people (Relationship, Respect, Result, Rewards and Recognition), they gave their outstanding employees awards and recognition for their excellent service to the company. Amazingly, some even beyond the call of duty! Group awards and recognition were given for the Best Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Best 5S Practitioners, HACCP/Food Safety Management System Team, Internal Audit Team, Safety & Health Committee, HR Point persons Team, Emergency Preparedness & Response team, 5S team, Mekeni Dancers, MFC Chorale, Best Delivery Team National Category, and Outstanding Factory Outlet Team. Individual awards and recognition were also given to the Most Outstanding Admin Personnel, Best Account Analyst, Perfect Attendance, Outstanding CSLM Support Personnel, Best Delivery Crew/Helper, Best Lead Delivery Crew/Helper, Best Delivery Driver, Best Cash & Goods Model, Service Excellence, and Loyalty Award for those who have been with the company for 10 years or more.

This is what makes Mekeni successful, they value their people and their contributions; showing them that they and their family are always part of Mekeni. In the same way, this is why the employees are happy to stay on, because they are all treated as valuable assets of the company.

In keeping with their thanksgiving party tradition, Mekeni did not let any of their employees to go home empty-handed. Everyone took home a sack of rice, assorted grocery items, and a pack of their Picnic Super Jumbo hotdog, all courtesy of the management. After many decades, Mekeni is still grateful for all the blessings that let the company continue this practice.

Lastly, Mekeni thanks all their valued customers in the Philippines and throughout the world where every Filipino have been served their delicious world-class quality products. It is through them that Mekeni continues to grow not only as a company but also as a community builder that will continue to provide opportunities and uplift poverty in the community that they serve. Truly, Mekeni is committed to be a partner of growth not only in the province where they built their reputable company, but also in the entire country where they have been happily and productively working with their dealers and distributors nationwide.

With their commitment to build people, Mekeni hopes and prays that they would sustain their passion, commitment, loyalty and pride in both triumph and challenges. It is their faith in their people and most of all their faith in God that makes them what they are now, 30 years of world-class quality food products and dedicated people.

One2Shop: Making e-Commerce Fast and Easy for Today’s Market

Manila, Philippines – Contrary to what you might have read or heard, the oldest profession in the world is none other than trading. And thanks to the Internet, its impact on our lives only gets bigger and bolder every year. There are a lot of e-commerce websites that now cater to the needs of online shoppers everywhere. Surprisingly, there are none that cater specifically to the tastes and wants of Filipinos.

Enter One2Shop, the newest e-commerce destination for Filipino online shoppers located all over the Philippines. Up until now, the bulk of the “online shopping malls” available in the country have been mostly foreign. But with One2Shop, these e-commerce websites will finally have the much-needed local touch that users will love.

According to a recent research conducted by Google, more than half of the population in the Asia Pacific region prefer to shop through mobile apps. Meanwhile, over 40% like to use their browser to visit their preferred e-commerce web sites. This is also very reflective of the recent Black Friday shopping spree where 40% of the purchases were all done online.

The opportunity to capture a meaningful portion of the market is definitely hard to pass on, especially since the coverage of shopping sites just keeps on growing.

One2Shop aims to grow right alongside the growing e-commerce market, harnessing the power of both the web and various social media channels to better engage its target audience.

One2Shop’s advantage over competing digital platforms is its use of the latest high-tech solutions available for e-commerce websites. Its back-end is built on top of Amazon Web Services, and it relies on various social media channels and advertising networks to deliver its content and offerings to its users.

One2Shop will first be available through its official web site, one2shop.com, and then through the One2Shop mobile app for Android.
