Rule Yourself This Season with Under Armour’s
Pioneer CoolSwitch Technology in New Spring/Summer 2016 Collection



U.S. high performance label Under Armour’s unprecedented cooling technology cools you down to empower you to perform better and longer
                                                  







UA CoolSwitch Compression shirt; UA Women CoolSwitch Capri Tights; UA CoolSwitch Run Short Sleeve T-shirt – specially created with Under Armour’s CoolSwitch technology to empower you to perform longer


MANILA, PHILIPPINES – A leader in the innovation of high-performance sportswear apparel, Under Armour brings sporting professionals and aspiring athletes a step closer to ruling oneself. An unprecedented edge to the fitness world, Under Armour’s CoolSwitch technology is unveiled in the new Spring/Summer 2016 Collection, hitting stores in mid-February.

With the tagline “You are the sum of all your training”, Under Armour’s Rule Yourself campaign represents athletes’ and fitness enthusiasts’ willpower to never give up, and the constant push to better themselves. Under Armour constantly researches and innovates its sportswear apparel technology to aid athletes to take that extra leap, steel their willpower and be the best they can be. With the pioneering CoolSwitch technology, an exciting and highly anticipated innovation in the new Spring/Summer 2016 Collection, you are guaranteed to have an edge over others to excel in your personal fitness journey.

CoolSwitch Technology
             
CoolSwitch does exactly what its name states - it cools your body and skin when you start to heat up and sweat. The technology blends three unique active cooling agents, integrated for the first time ever in an apparel application, with each of these ingredients delivering a specific benefit over the course of a workout to help athletes stay cool.
  
The first ingredient serves to pull heat energy away from the skin, providing an instant cooling sensation, while the second is activated by sweat – as an athlete begins to sweat, it kicks in to supercharge the body’s natural cooling mechanism. On top of aesthetics purposes, the ‘crystal’ print that characterises CoolSwitch apparel also plays a functional role. The final ingredient is the same technology of that used in NASA spacesuits. In the process of changing phases from solid to liquid, this special material absorbs and stores heat energy within the binding agents in the ‘crystal’ print.

While each ingredient performs a specific function, it is the unique combination of these active ingredients that gives rise to Under Armour CoolSwitch’s unprecedented active cooling capability.  As a result, during a workout, CoolSwitch wearers feel cooler, less physically taxed and their skin temperature stays lower, allowing them to exercise longer. With Under Armour’s CoolSwitch technology, it is a leap forward for athletes and fitness enthusiasts everywhere to maintain and further their fitness and wellness journey.

Crizal Eyezen by Essilor

Keep your eyes glued to the world with Crizal Eyezen: Keeping your eyes protected while you remain connected

In this day and age of internet, it’s a must for people to keep their eyes glued to the world using their digital devices — be it a smartphone, gadget or tablet. It is a fact that being digitally connected has become a lifestyle. However, being online 24/7 can strain and, even, damage your eyes. With the constant exposure to blue light emitted from digital devices, your eyes need protection.

Multi-screening

With the abundance of digital devices, people are now engaging in a digital behavior called “multi-screening”. It is a behavior where an individual uses multiple digital screens simultaneously, on average four (4) different devices are used—either for work, education, socializing or leisure.

A typical multi-screen user spends 7 hours and 24 minutes of screen media per day. Of that time, 34% is spent on smartphones; 33% on TV; 23% on laptops; and 10% on tablets. This longer time in front of bright digital screens and versatility between devices are challenges for the human eye, and many people are describing specific symptoms linked to their new behavior.

With this in mind, Essilor, the global leader in ophthalmic lenses, introduces Crizal Eyezen, a new range of lenses designed to keep your eyes protected while staying connected to the digital world.

Crizal Eyezen™ lenses are designed to replace ordinary prescription lenses or to assist occasionally the ones who usually do not need glasses, when viewing their digital devices. They exist in three (3) different optimizations according to the type of screen most used and the age of the patient. It features three revolutionary technologies—Eyezen Focus, Light Scan™ and W.A.V.E Technology that work in sync to relax the eyes from all digital stress and protect against harmful blue light.

Eyezen Focus Technology helps relieve the eye’s focus when using digital devices and reduces eye strain in ultra-near distances or for reading small characters by giving an extra power in the lower portion of the ophthalmic lens.

Light Scan™ Technology is a unique light filtering technology which protects eyes from the harmful blue-violet light emitted by digital screens. W.A.V.E Technology, on the other hand, eliminates lens distortion for sharper, clearer vision at every distance and better vision even in low light.


“Crizal Eyezen enhances the digitally connected lifestyle of the millennial generation” says Essilor Philippines general manager Dr. Emelita Roleda. “While ordinary glasses help you see the world, Eyezen enhance the way you live in it. With clearer, sharper vision, you can connect to the digital world better, while getting protection for your eyes at the same time.”

Crizal Eyezen is just one of the many technological innovations of Essilor.  As technology continues to advance, people’s visual needs will change at the same time. Essilor makes sure that people’s visual needs are always complemented through its constant technological innovations, innovations that aim for people to see the world better.



Crizal Eyezen lenses are available in clear and Crizal Transitions at leading optical shops nationwide. For more information, visit the Crizal Eyezen Facebook page, www.facebook.com/crizaleyezenph.

ALASKA For Breakfast

Wednesday, January 13, 2016 Aci Girl 0 Comments


Radio stations Jam 88.3, Mellow 94.7 and Wave 89.1 together Alaska Powdered Milk Drink, Alaska Sweetened Condensed Milk and Alaska Evaporated Filled Milk started the day right when they visited 8 offices in Metro Manila to give their employees the most important meal of the day - breakfast - with milk that provides 20+ nutriets, absolutely free!


Listeners of these partner radio stations just downloaded a form from the respective radio station website and answered the question, "Why do you think you and your officemates deserve to have FREE breakfast from Alaska, ang Gatas for Breakfast?"


During the office tour, nutritious Pinoy treats such as chicken sopas, champorado, biko and pandesal were served, all enhanced with one special ingredient - the Alaska Milk.


I want my Champorado this way (^.^,)






This campaign by Alaska could never have been more timely as it sends a message to our busy office workers that breakfast is the most important meal of the day and that the best way to jumpstart each working day is not to skip it but to have a filling and healthy meal.






Aside from the free breakfast, a gift pack was given to the lucky listener and his/her officemates were given Alaska products as treats. Surely, it was one nutritious and fun breakfast bonding moment at the office courtesy of Alaska, ang Gatas for Breakfast.
