This is How Bongbong Marcos Understands Mobile Gaming Values

Mobile Gaming

By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos may understand the mobile gaming industry but he admits that he is not keen on playing with it. Games are like digital books that people can learn from. It is understandable that parents can be worried about children spending too much time on them. However, if they know the values of those video games, they would rethink their views otherwise. The key is in the physical and mental balance. If a gamer retains a healthy lifestyle despite the passion for gaming, then it’s a win-win situation. Some Senators may want to eliminate MP or Multiplayer games but it would be hard because of the strong public patronage.

Responding to Comments

Here are just a few of the many really interesting, smart, provocative comments you’ve sent! Keep them coming, Marcos urges his fans on his vlogs.

The Achievements of Former President Ferdinand Marcos

Former Senator Bongbong Marcos also said to Francis Ian Q. Meneses that humility aside, the late President Ferdinand Marcos has lots of achievements that it is difficult for him to feature all the good works of his father on his video blog. It is known that the intentions of the older Marcos were laudable. To improve the economy by increasing agricultural productivity and to dismantle the oligarchy that had dominated the nation were his priorities. His greatest achievements were in the areas of infrastructure development, safeguarding the country against communism, and international diplomacy.

The Love Bus

In another comment in the vlog, Amajble Adams inquires about the solutions to the bad traffic in EDSA. BBM explains that there should be an efficient transport system so that there will be lesser cars. During the time of PFM, there was the Love bus. It was a comfortable bus system with handy terminals. The Love Bus is one of the first air-conditioned buses in the country. The former First Lady Imelda R. Marcos who was a Metro Manila Governor back then spearheaded it. It was a revolutionary vehicle when it was first launched. The blue paint and with ‘no standing on the aisle’ policy were distinctive. The first terminal of the Love Bus was in Escolta, Manila. From there, the bus goes to Philcoa. It then makes a U-Turn towards East Avenue and Ali Mall terminal. There was also a route from Cubao to Rustan’s Makati and then back to Escolta.

Bongbong Marcos Warns Parents Not to Kill a Child’s Creativity by Imposing a No Internet Games Rule

By: Elena Grace Flores

In this video of Bongbong Marcos, he has a contrasting opinion on a no internet games rule for the children in the family. Instead, he warns parents to be vigilant by understanding their child’s activities online. This is because the skills needed in industries right now are also going digital. Mobile gaming now is not just a form of entertainment but a way of training to enhance creativity. Parents could be killing a child’s potential as an app creator that pays a lot of money. Like one educator said; Why force a child to go to school when he or she wants to do something else? Let the young ones fail so that they can learn, he added.

No Internet Games? Play Offline

Game consoles like Boc, PS4, and Nintendo are now phasing out. It just takes a smartphone with IoS or Android programs to run a mobile game. Once the app is downloaded, you go into a no internet games zone. The following mobile games can be played offline: Alto’s
Odyssey.
Bloons TD 6.
Crashlands.
Crossy Road.
Eternium.
A few Square Enix games.
Friday the 13th.
Hooky Crook.

Online Jobs Require Creativity and Diligence

Like any other online jobs, creativity, and diligence are needed to become a mobile gaming developer or even just a mere star player. Creating a mobile game app or performing well need concentration. Nagging children about staying away from their phones can only frustrate them. You must have a more interesting alternative if you wish your son or daughter to do something else.

Raising a Millionaire

Marcos reminds adults to be aware if you are raising a future millionaire. Brian Wong In 2010 with friends, Courtney Guertin and Amadeus Demarzi, founded Kiip. It is a mobile app rewards platform that allows companies and brands to give real-world rewards for in-game achievements. Kiip is active on more than 1,100 apps. It is installed on 75 million devices. These kids are just a few successful individuals. Simply because they are passionate with what they’re doing. Nurturing parents can enhance the talents of their offsprings.

A Degree Does Not Guarantee a Good-Paying Job

In the Philippines, there are many university degree holders who are still minimum wagers after many years of working in a company. These are people who are contented with routine jobs. Their biggest fear is the penetration of AI in businesses. All systematic tasks can soon be handled by it thus, eliminating the need for hiring people for these positions. However, a robot can never replace creativity, passion, and talent. So, time to make adjustments on parenthood strategies to mold happy and successful future people in the workforce.

BBM on Mobile Gaming: No Internet Games Policy is Now Taboo

By: Elena Grace Flores

Bongbong Marcos realizes that gone are the days when the no internet games policy is a must in every Filipino household. The world now shifts to the positive side of mobile gaming. This is definitely not about earning lots of money online. Supporting a child’s talent is the most crucial way towards a family’s happiness. Like one educator said; Why force a child to go to school when he or she wants to do something else? Let the young ones fail so that they can learn, he added.

Game Consoles Not Needed

Boc, PS4 and Nintendo game consoles are not necessary anymore. A smartphone with IoS or Android programs can already run a mobile game. Once the app is downloaded, no internet games are possible to play with. The following mobile games can be played offline: Alto’s
Odyssey.
Bloons TD 6.
Crashlands.
Crossy Road.
Eternium.
A few Square Enix games.
Friday the 13th.
Hooky Crook.

Creativity and Diligence

Like any other online jobs, creativity, and diligence are a must. A self-starter already has many challenges by achieving his or her goal in creating a mobile game app or in merely performing well. Discouraging parents can only kill the spirit.

Young Millionaires

Brian Wong In 2010 along with his colleagues Courtney Guertin and Amadeus Demarzi, founded Kiip. It is a mobile app rewards platform that lets companies and brands give real-world rewards for in-game achievements. Kiip is active on more than 1,100 apps and on 75 million devices. These kids are just a few examples of the many success stories. Simply because they have the support in achieving their aspirations in life.

Unconventional Parenthood

In the Philippines, it is always the aim of most parents for their children to have a university degree. Sometimes, they are not mindful of what career can make them happy. It is found that people who love their work are the happiest people on earth. So, perhaps parents must change along with these innovative developments.

LTFRB-7’s PUV Modernization Pushes Through Despite the Euro 4 Concern of Imee Marcos

PUV Modernization

By: Elena Grace Flores

Senator Imee Marcos expresses earlier her apprehension about the Euro 4 requirement of the PUV Modernization program because there is “no such thing” in the country. She asks the transport agency to reconsider this requirement. Under the program, jeepneys are to be replaced with units powered by Euro 4 engines or electrically-powered engines with solar panels for roofs. DOTr Secretary Arthur Tugade defends the Euro4. He says that it is the internationally-accepted standard for carbon emissions. Sure enough, Rey Elnar, the Land Transportation, Franchising and Regulatory Board in Central Visayas (LTFRB-7) Assistant Director recently announces its progress.

LTFRB’s Rey Elnar Highlights PUV Modernization
Region 7 LTFRB Central Visayas Assistant Director, Rey Elnar answers questions on PUV modernization at the 888 News Forum, Marco Polo Hotel, Cebu.

PUV Modernization Updates

Elnar said that their timeline from March 18, 2018, gears to June 2020 completion. The original deadline for the transition period in Manila is July 2020, but Tugade says they are open to extending it if needed. This is to accommodate those operators who are not yet ready. They have given their franchises enough time to comply and positive that the up to 9 months leeway is sufficient.

Considerations to the the Euro 4 Requirement

The Euro 4 may be the ideal environmentally-friendly engine but Elnar discloses that some units will run on a hybrid system first. They can immediately switch to Euro 4 when their system is ready. It marks a significant reduction in the permissible limits for particulates and nitrogen oxides in diesel engines. The installation of particulate filters is the start of the clean-up process.

Airconditioned with WiFi

The hybrid system raises concerns over the media panel because this does not meet the purpose of generating acceptable emissions of air pollutants. However, the airconditioned units with the WiFi provisions at least lessen the passengers’ exposure to the harmful pollution while on the road.

Goodbye to the Jeepneys

There are a series of protests against the PUV modernization plan from the start. However, the big change is essential for mother earth and it may be time to say goodbye to the jeepneys. The cheapest unit would be available for P900,000. A P500 amortization rate per day is an affordable offer. Bigger units would charge a P1,000 amortization rate per day. The loaning system allows drivers to pay daily.

Samsung’s Latest Smartphones In 2017; Samsung Galaxy A3 And A5 Specs, Price And Release Date

Samsung Galaxy





By: Danilo Flores II

The controversy on Samsung’s alleged exploding phones is now over. It finally recovers after the discovery of cheap imitations. Samsung is slowly gaining their momentum towards supremacy when it comes to smartphones with its Samsung Galaxy series.






Youtube video by; Waqar Khan
[VIDEO]: Hey guys in this video i am going to show you Galaxy A3, A5, A7 (2017) – Official Specs & Features…



Samsung’s Latest Smartphones

To invade the global market this 2017 are Samsung Galaxy A3 and Samsung Galaxy A5. These smartphones are now available for pre-order and will soon be out for the public. These latest Samsung smartphones are expected to be as successful as it’s the latest release of Galaxy S7 Edge.




Samsung Galaxy A3 And A5 Specs

Samsung Galaxy A3 has a 4.7-inch screen and Samsung Galaxy A5 has a 5.2-inch display. Both of these displays include always-on technology allowing users to check for key notifications without waking up the device and wasting precious battery life.

The same with Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, the new A series are rated IP68 which means they can cope with a dip in water and are resistant to dust. An enhanced rear-facing camera and taking selfies feature has been made much easier for the user with the ability to touch anywhere on the screen to snap a high-resolution snap of your face.

The low light slot would no longer be a problem because Samsung Galaxy A3 & A5 uses the display as a front flash. Samsung says it’s trying to make smartphone photography less complicated on the A series with quick access to shot modes and instant filters which add effects to pictures.

Users can also use specific modes such as Food Mode to optimize and enhance the color and contrast of selected shots. There are no official specs on battery life but Samsung is boasting a long-lasting performance and fast charging via a USB Type-C port.

Samsung Galaxy A3 And A5 Price

While it has been an issue for the high-priced Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy A3 & A5 can be availed at a low cost. Galaxy A3 & A5 prices start at £279 or $348 dollars only. An obvious deviation from the price of Galaxy S7 Edge.

Phone Protection: NQ Mobile Security 2 years or NQ Mobile Security 1 year

Samsung Galaxy A3 And A5 Release Date

The news of these latest devices hitting the shops comes as Samsung has revealed its next flagship Galaxy S8 won’t get its usual February release date. The highly-anticipated smartphones will be announced at a later date.

For the last three years, Samsung has used the popular MWC trade show to announce the latest iteration of its flagship Galaxy S series. But that won’t be the case this year, with fans forced to wait longer than expected before the chance to upgrade their device.
