Ice Seguerra Releases New Single "Angel Sa Lupa" Under Universal Records

Multi-platinum recording artist Ice Seguerra (artist formerly known as artist Aiza Seguerra) is back with "Anghel Sa Lupa," his first single after the release of Gold certified album "Araw Gabi: Mga Awit ni Maestro Ryan" in 2015.

Ice rose to prominence being a former child star, appearing in over thirty films since his debut in Vic Sotto's Okey Ka Fairy Ko. From there, he has become one of the country's most respected singer-songwriters, with hits such as 'Pagdating Ng Panahon" and "Pakisabi Na Lang," among many others.

Known for his more "hugot" and melodramatic songs, Ice changes pace with this new single, a fresh acoustic tune that perfectly encapsulates the inexplicable feeling of being in love with someone. Though it gives more of a light-hearted feel than his previous songs, Ice still manages to deliver his signature vocals prominent in his well-loved body of work.

Asian Americans Call for a Movement To Represent in Hollywood

“I feel sometimes so frustrated because it’s like the rest of America is more advanced than what we see on our screen.” – Veena Sud

The statement as reported by Variety from Veena Sud, the creator of the AMC American crime drama TV series, “The Killing”, whose premiere ranked as the second-highest original series premiere for AMC, was as realistic as it could get:

“As a showrunner, I can pitch any story, but if it doesn’t sell it doesn’t get on the air. So I can go ahead and pitch every Filipino [or] Indian story known on the face of the Earth, but if it doesn’t sell, it doesn’t matter. And so there is a radical sea-change necessary, not only in our group represented here but in the entire industry,” Sud said.

Book Club - When Old Ladies Discover Fifty Shades

Books may not be popular today but friendship and family does. But what happens when you bring together four elderly women meeting regularly then they came across 50 Shades Of Grey as their book of the week? We have a interesting yet small Book Club that will release their inner goddesses and will try to change their lives. 

The film cast includes four Oscar winners: Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda, Mary Steenburgen, and Richard Dreyfuss; and two Oscar nominees: Candice Bergen and Andy Garcia. Thus it can be expected that they won't disappoint in their roles.  Interestingly many of the actors have worked together in many projects yet after years of decades, they found themselves working together again, example of which are Andy Garcia and Diane Keaton were part of The Godfather.

The film takes on a sexy-comedy at some parts yet it does not follow the pattern of exaggeration done by other films. This brings realism to the movie and makes them similar to real life women of their age. It's like a family movie, with some parts not for kids. This is most likely perfect for Titas or Lolas who will relate to some of its throwback joke references.

1. Over 20-MP front cameras  
Taking better selfies and photos has never been easier with Vivo phones. 
The world has been obsessed with taking selfies to document one’s everyday life or the most cherished moments. But for years, not all smartphone brands took a special interest in developing their front cameras.

Solo: A Star Wars Story - Han's History Finally Revealed!

Like the Avengers, A solo Solo movie (pun intended) has been long been awaited and 2018 was indeed the year of patience with the most favorite space smuggler/pilot finally reveals his origins. Solo: A Star Wars Story may be in between episode VIII and IX, yet it is a good filler while we await the next installment of the space opera.

Casting Han was probably the hardesr task for the creative team to do as it should pass the taste of fans as well to really portray the young Han Solo originally played by Harrison Ford. Initially there were rumors of having Scott Eastwood but it was given to Alden Ehrenreich (Hail!, Ceasar!) which many at first were very hesitant.

But along Alden, they also made interesting casting like Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Donald Glover (The Martian), Woody Harrelson (The Hunger Games) and they even have Paul Bettany (Avengers Infinity War) too! They play Qi'ra, Lando Carlissian, Tobias Beckett and Dryden Vos respectively. I also find the new droid L3-37 as a fun droid voiced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge.

The Advantage of a Human Resource Expert in Recruitment’s Digitized Ecosystem

In recent years, the human resource function in organizations has undergone many changes, from the recruitment processes to employee retention efforts and performance management systems.

Most management teams have started to use technology for human resource acquisition and retention with chatbots, AI and machine learning making it easier for both the job applicant and employer to find the right match as cited by Jake Go, CEO and co-founder of pioneering recruitment firm Springboard Philippines.

Bucking the Trend in Digitization

Recruitment’s screening process alone has significantly improved through technological advances such as automated systems that are starting to imitate Google’s way of tailor fitting ads using a person’s user data to learn that person’s interests and needs. Most also use systems that narrow job candidates by using specific keyword searches that allow HR managers to scan resumes in a matter of seconds. Some of these tools include Entelo and TalentBin, which both use artificial intelligence to search for and pick the best fit among the candidates online. Job portals like Jobstreet, Kalibrr, and Bestjobs now provide job seekers and companies a more convenient way of interacting through digital platforms.

Young Cast Shares Dark Secrets, Deep Fears in "Truth or Dare"

Joining Lucy Hale and Tyler Posey in Universal Pictures’ terrifying new supernatural thriller Truth or Dare are five young actors on the cusp of stardom -- Violett Beane, Nolan Gerard Funk, Sophia Taylor Ali, Hayden Szeto and Landon Liboiron.

In Truth or Dare, a group of college friends heads to Mexico for one last getaway before they begin their post-grad lives and head their separate ways.  As with any core crew, long-brewing romances and allegedly buried conflicts begin to emerge as they prepare to say goodbye.  When a handsome stranger cons Olivia (Lucy Hale) into getting her friends to play a supposedly silly game of “Truth or Dare,” they awaken a trickster demon that is hell-bent on getting them to share their darkest secrets or confront their deepest fear…and if they don’t, they’ll pay the ultimate price.
