« Last post by MIKELIGALIG.com on Today at 02:37:57 AM »

12th Asia Pacific Wellness Tour to encourage healthy, active living among
consumers, with a focus on healthy aging. Featuring a series of talks, training sessions and webinars in 15 cities across Australia, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Japan, Macau, the Philippines, Taiwan and Thailand, the latest Herbalife Nutrition Asia Pacific Wellness Tour aims to equip consumers with practical nutrition knowledge and positive lifestyle habits to help kickstart their healthy aging journeys.

According to the Asia Pacific Risk Center(
https://www.mmc.com/content/dam/mmc-web/Files/APRC/APRC%20Ageing%20report%20FULL.pdf),
Asia Pacific is the fastest aging region in the world with over 200 million
people expected to move into the ranks of the elderly (aged 65 years and above)
between 2016 and 2030. In addition, the United Nations World Population Age
Report 2017 (
https://www.un.org/en/development/desa/population/publications/pdf/ageing/WPA2017_Highlights.pdf)
estimated that by 2050, older persons aged 60 and above will make up 24 percent
of the population in Asia, outnumbering adolescents and youths between the ages of 10 to 24 by 2.1 billion to 2.0 billion.

With rapidly aging populations bringing unprecedented socio-economic
challenges, Herbalife Nutrition recognized the need for Asia Pacific consumers to start taking urgent steps towards healthy aging. Based on findings from the Herbalife Nutrition 2018 Asia Pacific Healthy Aging Survey, 92 percent of respondents in Asia Pacific believe that active steps can be taken to help them age healthily. Among this group, 81 percent believe they can age healthily by
making better nutrition choices, and 75 percent said this can be achieved
through regular physical activity.

"While growing older is inevitable, the increased discomfort that comes with
aging is not. With advancements in science and nutrition, we hope to help
consumers understand that reductions in bodily functions and mobility as a
result of aging can be delayed by making positive lifestyle changes earlier on in life. This latest Asia Pacific Wellness Tour not only brings some of our best nutrition experts to the region, it also provides an empowering platform for them to share best practices in nutrition and lifestyle habits with consumers, to support their healthy aging journeys," said Stephen Conchie, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, Asia Pacific, Herbalife Nutrition.

During the Tour, Herbalife Nutrition experts and members of the Herbalife
Nutrition Advisory Board (NAB) will share healthy living habits with consumers across Asia Pacific. With a focus on fostering digestive health, heart health, bone health, joint health and brain health through making simple nutrition and lifestyle changes, the experts will be sharing principles on cellular science and personalized nutrition to help consumers age healthily for the long term.

Asia | Middle East / Beating Liquor Foam
« Last post by MIKELIGALIG.com on Today at 02:34:45 AM »

"With just a stainless steel container and some water, by observing the foaming of the tumbling liquor, the liquor maker can accurately judge its alcoholic strength within an error margin of less than 0.1% v/v. This is amazing," said Mr. Sin, chief China correspondent with the Korean Central News Agency as he was watching the "beating liquor foam" performance at Shaanxi Xifeng Liquor on
October 15.

This event, dubbed 70 Years of Great Progress -- Overseas Media Representatives Visit Shaanxi in 2019, with its primary purpose being to facilitate the visit and interviews with personnel from the Shaanxi Xifeng Liquor Group, was hosted by the Shaanxi Provincial Government Information Office. The media interview group, made up of 12 journalists from nine countries, observed the Xifeng Liquor production process, looked over the Xifeng Liquor Cultural Center, and inspected the large Xifeng Liquor containers. They formed an understanding of the unique Xifeng Liquor distilling process and learned about the long-established Xifeng Liquor culture.

In the Xifeng Liquor Storage and Blending Workshop, the journalists were intrigued by the rows of unusual large liquor containers and they scrambled to learn about the production process and storage protocols. Xifeng Liquor has a
long history and it represents a highly-developed culture. It is an important carrier for China to continue on with its rich liquor culture. The Xifeng Liquor Group is located in Liulin Town, Baoji, Shaanxi Province. It is the
largest liquor manufacturer in Northwest China and ranks 4th on the Value Ranking List of Chinese Liquor Brands.

"Xifeng Liquor is distilled from selected high-quality raw grain, using a
complicated ancient method and a single production cycle that takes one year.

The freshly-distilled liquor must then be stored for at least three more years
before it can be used in the final product," said Jia Zhiyong, vice chairman and general manager of the Xifeng Liquor Group. "I hope that people from other countries can really get a feel for the unique charm of Xifeng Liquor by experiencing the distilling and blending processes and tasting the liquor while they are here. I hope they will add Xifeng Liquor to their imbibing habits which will bring more relaxation and contentedness to the lives of people around the world."

Travel and Tours / Argentina Before Columbus
« Last post by MIKELIGALIG.com on Today at 02:11:37 AM »
Pre-Columbian Argentina
Of all South American countries, superficially, at least, Argentina has
the least marked pre-colonial culture
. During the nineteenth century in
particular, whole indigenous peoples were wiped out by various waves
of newcomers, their superior weapons and their deadly diseases. Yet drinking mate – now a quintessentially Argentine custom – was learned from the native peoples, while a good many traditional festivals and prevailing superstitious beliefs were inherited from those who lived on Argentine soil long before the Europeans arrived. Though no Machu Picchu, the pre-Columbian – and mostly pre-Inca – ruins at Quilmes, Tilcara and Shinkal are nevertheless marvellous archeological sites,
while fine rock drawings can be admired at accessible locations across the country.

Inspiration & Hope / Where you draw your strength
« Last post by MIKELIGALIG.com on Today at 02:06:21 AM »
Reppsted from FB
Dear Men..

Sometimes I wonder where you draw your strength from.

You stay for months without buying clothes for yourself all because you want to put food on the table...

You stay hungry just so your family can eat and survive..

You get dressed and leave the house without direction, but you come back home  with money after toiling day and night..

Some of you have been embarrassed, disgraced and abused because you can't afford to get a decent job and when you bring home peanuts, they throw it right back in your face..

I know how you have deprived yourself of basic education just so your children can eat..

Most times you are insulted, abused by people you are older than, but you take the insults all because of your wife and kids..

Your parents look up to you for survival and they don't even care if you have a job or not, you just have to provide for the family..

You pay huge bride prices just to marry the woman you love and you end up taking care of her family, take care of her siblings and even train some of them..

How you do all these amazes me and I pray the good lord to bless your hustle.. AMEN!

Stay alive for your mother, your wife and your kids!! , and your loved ones in general.

I pray God should continue blessing you for your unconditional love and sacrifices for your family.

ENTREPRENEURIAL SHIFTS IN THE DIGITAL AGE
BY LUCELL LARAWAN, THE DAILY GUARDIAN AND BOHOL TRIBUNE

If we look at the most valuable companies in the world, they foster innovation that expands their reach beyond traditional boundaries. This is true to Google and Facebook—the new unicorns that have replaced manufacturing companies in the past decades. Entrepreneurship has taken a new step forward.

In today’s era, business models mostly become meaningless without an online presence, the reason some of the biggest companies are doing all their transactions on the web. On the other hand, overcoming challenges among start-up businesses are now easier to overcome compared before. One can create a video on YouTube and ask donations to finance his or her ventures—bypassing the hard knots and risks in acquiring bank loans. Digitalization has redefined today’s entrepreneurship.

I should define digital entrepreneurship based on Davidson and Vaast’s (2010) definition taken from Proceedings of the 43rd Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences: the pursuit of “new venture opportunities presented by new media and internet technologies”. The measure of success of a new digital business is market orientation based on three determinants which are: technological skills, tools for managing a business environment and knowledge of the marketplace. Mastering the technology is no small task. Ignoring the tastes and preferences of the target market can make a business a house of cards. The decision of whether to adopt a new technology is not just the technician’s decision.

Digital entrepreneurship creates economic opportunities for the unemployed and underemployed and improves a community’s living conditions, according to Jackson (2009) who authored the article in a journal, “Capitalizing on digital entrepreneurship for low-income residents…”. This phenomenon should move local government units to prioritize their constituents’ accessibility to the internet. Moreover, they should give more training programs related to the digital business and digital marketing that has generated many income opportunities. It means a slow shift to the digital age from an agricultural economy that may already lose leverage in this 21st century. (I am not advocating a halt for our rice and fish industry.) I am talking about giving leverage for many people in this digital age.

This leverage is seen in the advancements in internet technology enabling Indian entrepreneurs to use new business models to achieve scale and scope as they begin to compete globally. From a practitioner’s and a researcher’s view, understanding how these Indian entrepreneurs grow successfully with a rapid expansion, is critical.

To give practical advice, I found Dr. Rupa Rathee’s tips helpful in ensuring success in the digital age:

1) Make use of co-working space. Without an office, a co-working space gives a place where people can easily collaborate, changing the pace of starting businesses and iterating quickly because of great resources.
2) Give freebies. This means giving some free services to promote businesses—a business model becoming more common nowadays. Examples are sites that help anyone monetize their skills online such as TaskRabbit and ModCloth.
3) Leverage by crowdfunding. This is about using a platform that gives one’s product a global stage and allows the world to fund his project. Crowdfunding keeps your equity and control of one’s business. As an entrepreneur may encounter difficulty in scaling and getting investors, which gives away his equity through traditional methods of fund raising, is not an option.
4) Invest in the mobile market. Entrepreneurs should contemplate a global market as mobile devices become more personable and smarter. 
5) Create a climate for open innovation. Hire great talents who can innovate and give them access to the higher levels of decision makers.
6) Hire influencers. Social marketing is becoming the trend. If one shares to his or her friend a product that he or she likes, it can spread like wildfire. This is a more effective promotion strategy compared to other media. 
7) Use data in decision making. Feelings cannot substitute data. Entrepreneurs should be data-driven to find out what works best.       

Digital entrepreneurship, like the traditional entrepreneurship, purposefully generates profit and is “directly inscribed into the economic realm” (Davidson and Vaast, 2010), such as the creation of a new firm or the commercialization of innovation. But unlike the traditional business, digital ventures have greater connectivity; thus, they give more market opportunities. Focusing on the market is still very critical, whether we are dealing with digital or traditional formats.
