On the move

first_imgLATEST STORIES A few minutes into the presentation, the company’s vision are flashed on the screen: F2 Logistics wants to be faster. Better. Stronger. If that sounds familiar, it’s because it wings at the Olympic credo. And it figures. Uy, the company’s president and CEO is a sportsman.“I’ve always been involved in sports; I was an athlete when I was younger,” said Uy.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutAnd outside the business circles, inside the sporting arena, F2 Logistics is proving to be faster, better and stronger than the rest of the field in the Philippine Superliga.With already two titles in their trophy case, the Cargo Movers are more than equipped to defend their Grand Prix crown despite a bulk of their stars struck out of the roster while they’re on duty for La Salle in the UAAP. Families in US enclave in north Mexico hold sad Thanksgiving And the inspiration goes a long way in an industry that bleeds the clock dry with its nonstop activity. Whether it’s delivering life-saving medicines on time to where it is needed to keeping supermarkets stocked with fresh produce, logistics and cargo giant, F2 Logistics delivers to the Filipino public providing them with their needs on a daily basis.But the Cargo Movers have done their share of pumping up the energy of the workforce with their smashing victories on court. And they provide inspiration elsewhere too.“Believe it or not, these girls volunteer for a lot of our outreach programs,” Uy revealed. “A lot of our players know what it is like to grow up amid hardships so some of the girls, like Abby and Cha, they really want to open doors for others and volunteer to do clinics for us for free.”In a way, the Cargo Movers are a perfect reflection of the company they represent. From its humble southern roots “where we started with three branches and just a handful of trucks,” F2 Logistics has grown to more than a thousand trucks nationwide, providing world class warehousing and logistics services.The Cargo Movers traced more or less the same route in the PSL. They began “just wanting to be competitive,” said Uy, hiring such standouts as Cha Cruz, Aby Marano and Paneng Mercado to lead the young team.But after a third-place finish in their first year, Uy felt he needed “to beef up the roster.” While shopping for added talents, Uy made a partnership the De La Salle volleyball squad, which did not have a company to back them up yet; “with an already established team and led by one of the best coaches in the Philippine scene, we always aim to be the best ” said Uy.And the rest is history. The partnership has resulted in not just two PSL titles, but a championship for La Salle as well in the UAAP—the Lady Spikers are also backed by F2 Logistics in the collegiate league.With the PSL now in full swing, the Cargo Movers are now chasing for more success in a season that holds a lot of promise for the squad. Lee waxes hot for Hotshots Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH MOST READ “We will lack some key players, but we will be fine,” said head coach Ramil de Jesus.Uy brims with the same amount of confidence, pinning his hopes on former La Salle stars Aby Marano, skipper Cha Cruz, peerless setter Kim Fajardo and the ultra talented Ara Galang as the Cargo Movers hope for a repeat of their dramatic conquest of Petron in last year’s Finals.“That was such a memorable win,” said Uy. “We were already behind in Game 2, 0-9, and I remember some fans were already readying banners but we fought back and forced a fifth set. And then we won that fifth set and the momentum had already shifted to our side in Game 3.”More than the victory itself, Uy is appreciative of what the Cargo Movers have done for F2 Logistics as a company.“You know, after that win, people in the office started using that victory as an inspiration,” he said. “They keep telling themselves that if [the Cargo Movers] can do it, then nothing is impossible in work.”ADVERTISEMENT AFP official booed out of forum Efren Uy leans back on his chair and stares at a projector screen inside the F2 Logistics office boardroom.

COPY LINKAD Loading … Testing the ASAT today, India showed its military might in space as it became the 4th country to become a part of the elite space power club.Representative imageFor the second time in a week, Pentagon has come out strongly in support of India’s Anti-Satellite (A-SAT) missile test saying that Mission Shakti was imperative considering the threat from space. Pentagon had earlier rubbished the claims of National Aeronautical Space Agency (NASA) of A-SAT test being terrible and disturbing the space order. It was claimed that the test created 400 odd pieces of orbital debris and posed a danger to the International Space Station (ISS).On March 27, when Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced the launch of the ground to space missile that destroyed a satellite, the nation had joined the elite group of space powers that include the United States, China and Russia.US Strategic Command Commander General John E Hyten told members of the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee on Thursday that the key points from India’s A-SAT test were that India did the test to defend itself from the threats in space. Gen. Hyten was responding to the US Senator’s queries on why India conducted the ASA-T test.”The first lesson from the Indian ASAT is just the simple question of why did they do that. And the answer should be, I think to all the committee looking at it, is that they did that because they are concerned about threats to their nation from space,” he said.The US Senators raised the alarm after NASA chief Jim Bridenstine said that the test was a “terrible thing” that endangered the ISS and created 40 pieces of orbital debris. The premier space agency claimed that it had tracked nearly 60 orbital debris and that 24 were going above the apogee of ISS.Pentagon, standing firmly in support of India, said that such incidences had happened in the past as well when China sent 100,000 pieces of debris in 2007 during its anti-satellite test.In 2009, a satellite collision took place between the US and an old Russian satellite that also resulted in debris in the space.Gen. Hyten observed that in such challenging times when four countries have acquired A-SAT capabilities, there was a dire need to introduce safe environmental norms in the space. He advocated for the development of some kind of international norms of behaviour in space.”And where those norms of behaviour should begin, from my opinion, is with debris, because as the combatant commander responsible for space today, I don’t want more debris,” he added.center_img ‘Terrible, terrible thing’, created 400 pieces of debris: NASA Chief on India’s ASAT testlast_img read more

Survivor recounts how he got new life

first_imgUS Bangla plane crash survivor Keshav Pandey. Photo: Kathmandu PostA survivor of Bangladeshi airline US Bangla plane crash said that he has got a new life. Neapli national Keshav Pandey, said that he thinks he is fortunate to be alive.Keshav, who is travel agency operator, spoke to local newspaper Kathmandu Post from a hospital in Nepal.At least 51 people were killed when a Kathmandu US Bangla airliner crashed at Tribhuvan International Airport (TIA) in Kathmandu on Monday. Some of the survivors are still in critical condition.The aircraft was carrying 67 passengers – 32 from Bangladesh, 33 from Nepal and one each from China and the Maldives.Keshav is receiving treatment at the Medicity Hospital Nakhu, Lalitpur. He told the local newspaper that he came to Bangladesh along with 11 travel agency operators and two representatives of US-Bangla aircraft to participate in the Customer Success Summit on 9 March.He told the newspaper that they were supposed to return to home after the programme at Cox’s Bazar but they decided to stay one more dayHe told the newspaper that the flight took off on time on Monday. He said that they sat on the front seats.  He said that when the plane entered Kathmandu Valley the aircraft was supposed to take the route of Koteshwor while landing but it took another route and missed the airport.“We thought the pilot was following the instruction from air-traffic control tower,” Keshav said.He said that the pilot was flying the plane above the hills of Budhanilkantha and Bouddha areas while making the turn to the airport. The plane was flying close to houses and trees.“That left all the passengers panic-stricken,” he said.Keshav said that this is the time they felt that their lives were at risk.“When the pilot turned the plane and approached the airport out of nowhere we thought we will survive,” he said.He said that the passengers became hopeful two minutes before the landing.“Shortly after, the plane touched down violently with a bang sound. That’s what I remember. Then after all I can recollect is how I was struggling to save myself. A stream of petrol was oozing out and the plane was emitting smoke. I was trying to come out of the crashed aircraft but couldn’t due to my leg injuries. In the meantime, Nepal Army personnel saw me crawling out of the plane”, Keshav recalled.He said that he was rescued and taken to the Sinamangal-based Kathmandu Medical College.“My family members later took me to the Medicity Hospital for treatment,” he added.He said that he is sad that he lost many friends.“I have got a new life by losing many friends,” he said.last_img read more

Easy tips for smudge free makeup

first_imgFor flawless make-up, moisturise your skin well before applying the products and use fixtures to get a refreshed look. Here are some tips by make-up artist Kanikka Gauraav Tandon for keeping your make-up perfect, always:Moisturise: Moisturise your skin before applying make-up, but be sure that the moisturiser is oil-free to make the make-up stick to its place. Besides that, use a primer. Go for mineral powder foundation which works great for oily skin. Apply it with foundation applicator brush. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Eyes: Before applying eyeliner to your bottom lashes, dust a brush over some baby powder and apply it on the lower lash line which will soak the extra moisture from the area, making it easier for the eyeliner to stay in place for longer. Also, avoid putting eye cream directly on your lids and apply primer specifically made for your eyes.Lips: Try to get rid of extra skin from your lips with the help of sugar scrub. Apply foundation to your lips to make your lipstick last longer. Line and fill the lip with neutral lip pencil. Apply one coat of lipstick and then blot, and finish with a light layer lip gloss.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixBlush: Use powdered blush-on in natural earthy shades or apply the blush on in a dotted format on your cheeks and rub it gently with your ring finger.

For blush-on, you can use colours like ruby, strawberry, orchid lilac colours.Refresh your make-up: Fixtures are generally used to give your make-up a refreshed look. It is basically a misty spray which is sprayed on the face. After spraying it let it settle for approximately six to seven seconds. Get ready with a fresh face on a hot and sweaty day.last_img read more

Why Silicon Valley Uses Multiple Computer Displays and Why You Should Too

first_img Register Now » Walk into any fast-paced startup or high-powered tech company in Silicon Valley and you’ll see a lot of things that might not be traditional for a workplace. Unorthodox decorations, strange lighting and open floor plans will be the order of the day. Yet while tech company environments may be one-of-a-kind when it comes to snack bars and ping pong tables, one thing all seem to share are multiple computer displays for their computing needs.Related: Why Two Monitors Are More Productive Than OneUsing more than one monitor, in this way, has a long history. Banks of displays have their role everywhere from business to the realms of science fiction. It’s only relatively recently, however, that home and business computing has reached a point where it’s cheap enough — and computers are powerful enough — to run multiple monitors without extra internal hardware.Take a tour of any high-powered tech company, and other businesses, and you’ll see monitors everywhere. Microsoft workstations have two to three screens on average, and, often, large projectors. Even small, agile startups have docks for netbooks with additional monitors.So, what’s significant about that? you might ask. Well, using more than one display benefits anyone with a lot of work to do (read: entrepreneurs). Sure, this scenario might not be ideal for everyone, but it’s worth trying out for the following reasons:Convenient data accessOne of the best benefits to using more than one monitor at a time is having the screen real estate necessary to show you everything you need to see at once. When you’re writing a blog post, you can have a word processor and two to three browser windows open to access research, tools and references all at once. You don’t have to waste time tabbing and scrolling, trying to remember where a particular detail is. You just have them all on hand!The same goes for other forms of data access. Someone in a programming field can could have code references up in one window, the current project in another, a database query result in another and the tools necessary to compile whatever’s needed squirreled away in a corner. Nothing is buried, nothing is hidden; it’s all right there and easy to access.Part and parcel with data access is a reduction in errors. It’s easy to mix up numbers or introduce typos when translating data from one window to another, but when both are visible on screen at the same time, verification becomes easier.Active monitoringSome of us work in positions where a quick response time is crucial. A customer service or sales rep might want to jump on the chance to follow up on a new contact, so having an email window open at one end of a screen is a great benefit.  An IT worker might want server-health monitors or other displays visible, to spot a sporadic problem while at work on another task.What a second monitor — or a third, in some cases — provides is awareness. One screen can be devoted to a primary task, while a secondary screen to the side or above can serve as a window into information.  You can simply glance up or over to see how everything looks, rather than taking several moments to tab over or open an analytics window to check.You can also use part of a second monitor for certain productivity apps. Pomodoro timers and similar task-management aids are great for this; you won’t necessarily be as startled by a sudden alarm when a timer starts counting down.Task prioritizationOne great benefit few people mention is the ability to prioritize tasks while using multiple monitors. It takes some self-discipline, but we all inherently choose one monitor, or even one position on a large monitor, as a primary location. Your current active task goes right in the middle, surrounded by additional windows necessary to perform that task, while the next item or two oin your to-do list takes up tertiary positions on other screens.Related: We Test It: The Portable LED MonitorSome people might find this distracting or feel they need to multitask on each visible project simultaneously. Personally, I find I can focus on one task while the next one percolates in the back of my mind.  Once I finish the primary task, my subconscious has already formulated a few ideas for getting started on the next one.Jon Peddie Research has performed studies in 2002, 2012, and 2017 about the productivity increases involved with multiple monitor usage. It’s found that usage has steadily increased, and that productivity among multi-monitor users is on average 42 percent higher than single monitor users.AlternativesUsing more than one monitor isn’t necessarily required to gain the above benefits. There are an increasing number of ultra-wide monitors hitting the market. One ultra-wide monitor can be more useful than multiple standard monitors. For one thing, there’s no gap between them: You can spread out your windows however you like. They’re also often curved, for a more natural display and reduced stain on the neck and the eyes.One drawback to an ultra-wide monitor is that most programs and websites are not designed with a huge horizontal distance in mind. This leads to a lot of fiddling with window- and app-positioning, and resizing. As an alternative, to skip this, use virtual desktops. You can organize different virtualized desktops for different tasks, and switch between them quickly and easily.DrawbacksUsing multiple monitors isn’t for everyone. It’s not a perfect system, and there are some people today switching back to single screens.  Admittedly, you do require a certain level of discipline to avoid distractions while using two or more screens. They can be a pain in the neck — literally — if they aren’t positioned properly. They do require an appropriate amount of space on a desk or in a cubicle; and getting a setup that’s comfortable is a matter of trial and error. There’s also an adjustment necessary if you frequently work with a laptop or tablet on the road, and dock it, or use a multi-screen setup in the office or at home.Related: Apple Is Reportedly Trying to Make its Own DisplaysEven so, I still highly recommend giving multiple screens a try. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
