Piolo Pascual Joins Bea Alonzo and Heart Evangelista in the Poten-Cee Family

Multi-awarded actor, singer, and health enthusiast Piolo Pascual joins Poten-Cee Vitamin C’s family of A-list brand ambassadors as the latest endorser of Poten-Cee + ZN and Poten-Cee + Zn Advance, the brand’s newest variants.

It is an endorsement that has long been waiting to happen, what with Piolo sharing a surname with the company’s founders and owners. While there is no relation, Pascual and the PascualLab Family share one thing in common – a love for life and passion for health.

Pascual, one of the Philippine entertainment industry’s eminent actors who has become one of the most recognized names since he first entered the industry in 1990, has proven himself a formidable force, giving life into and doing his best in whatever he dabbles in.

A well-known health and badminton enthusiast, Pascual puts a premium on his health, all the more proving that he is the easy choice to endorse Poten-Cee + ZN and Poten-Cee + ZN Advance.

Poten-Cee + ZN and Poten-Cee + ZN Advance are the newest additions to Poten-Cee’s family of adult variants that include Sugar-Coated, Sugar-Free, Forte, Non-Acidic, and Chewable. Poten-Cee + ZN helps augment our body’s defenses through the addition of Zinc, while Poten-Cee + ZN Advance not only contains Zinc but is fortified with Vitamin D3 to further enhance our immune response.

Zinc helps the body take the defensive stance by preventing the entry and multiplication of viruses² while Vitamin D works on the offense, activating the body’s immune system to better attack viral invaders.

Pascual believes that for life to go on in this pandemic, it is critical to both be cautious and forward-thinking. He commented, “We are still in a pandemic and so when it comes to health, we should not let our guard down, but instead, step up. Poten-Cee's newest variants offer that added immunity to shield us further from the viruses while supporting our overall health so that we can carry out our responsibilities and be there for the important people in our lives.”

And just like Pascual, when people think he has already given his all, he seems a step ahead in his game and continues to level it up, especially with his health.

Pascual joins Poten-Cee’s powerhouse endorsers led by multi-awarded actress, brand endorser, and philanthropist Bea Alonzo and just last year, by multi-faceted artist, fashion icon, and philanthropist Heart Evangelista.

Donny Pangilinan and Jeremiah Lisbo Fight for Belle Mariano's Heart

The rivalry between Deib (Donny Pangilinan) and RJ (Jeremiah Lisbo) becomes even fiercer as they clash at the basketball championship between their schools while trying to win Max’s (Belle Mariano) heart, in the awaited finale of the top trending series “He’s Into Her,” which will stream on iWantTFC this Friday (July 29), and air on Kapamilya Channel and A2Z this Sunday (July 31).

At a chance meeting outside the school, RJ assured Max that he would never leave her again, especially now that not everything is going well with her new family and she continues to entertain the idea of going back to her old peaceful life in the province.

Meanwhile, as Deib found the two together, he now feels even more threatened because the girl he loves is back to being friends with his rival, and despite her reassurance that Deib has already become special to her.

Back at home, Max continues to harbor feelings of guilt and offered to go back to Mindoro as her stepmother Macy (Issa Litton) and stepsister Elle (Melizza Jimenez) have shown no signs of returning soon after leaving when her dad (Richard Quan) insisted that Elle be punished for being secretly involved in the physical attack on Max in school.

As Deib becomes more determined to take the championship back from the Southbay Sharks under RJ's leadership, will he also win Max’s heart? Watch out for “He’s Into Her” on iWantTFC this Friday and on Kapamilya Channel, A2Z and on Kapamilya Online Live via the YouTube channel and Facebook page of ABS-CBN Entertainment this Sunday.

ABS-CBN News Senior Correspondent Don Tagala Wins at the 2021 New York Press Club Journalism Awards

The New York Press Club recently announced the winners of the 2021 New York Press Club Journalism Awards and ABS-CBN News Senior Correspondent Don Tagala won for Community Coverage.

An enduring tradition in New York media, the annual New York Press Club Awards for Journalism honor excellence by writers, reporters, editors, producers, photographers, and multi-media journalists. Entries this year were judged in 30 categories, including sub-categories for print, broadcast, and the Internet.

Tagala’s multi-media report, “Filipino ‘Superheroes’ at the Frontlines of COVID-19 Wear Scrubs, Not Capes,” was a stirring, yet honest look at how these warriors faced the daily risk of combating the deadly, yet invisible coronavirus at the height of the pandemic last year.

Tagala shares that “covering the Filipino community during the early part of the pandemic was tough because at that time we didn't know a whole lot about the virus, how it’s transmitted, who gets infected, who dies and who lives.”

For many, it seemed that the best way to survive the pandemic was to stay away from the rest of the world and hunker down at home. But as Tagala got to speak with Filipino nurses and other healthcare workers, he realized that “they were putting their own lives on the line, as well as the lives of their family members who live with them.”

He shares that “there were nurses who told me that while many of their non-Filipino coworkers quit their jobs to save themselves and their families, these Filipino nurses even volunteered and believed it was their duty to stay and keep saving more lives even if it meant putting themselves in harm’s way.”

Many of them lost their lives to COVID while saving others. Some lost family members who braved the isolation rooms to resuscitate patients who are code blue. And then there were several survivors who lived to tell their stories. Tagala reveals that it was cathartic for him to hear their stories of struggle and isolation. He states that “some were on the verge of giving up, ready to die, but many fought to stay alive.”

According to Tagala, “community stories like these are sometimes not on the radar of mainstream media, that is why it is important for ethnic media outlets like ABS-CBN News, through TFC News, to carry these stories and bring these stories to a larger audience while doing so.”

ABS-CBN News North America Bureau Chief TJ Manotoc underlines the importance of ethnic media. “It’s a great honor for the team to be seen alongside such big names in journalism. As we are part of a small but significant group of ethnic media in the US, we are grateful to the NYPC for giving attention to community stories which we feel is where ethnic media truly shines and can tell the stories on the ground in the most authentic way

Manotoc states that “a recognition like this make us prouder of our work and inspires our team to strive harder to tell the stories of our community, that in the end inspires us all to be better for one another.”

“Filipino ‘Superheroes’ at the Frontlines of COVID-19 Wear Scrubs, Not Capes” was part of the COVID-19 Reporting Fellowship project with the New Jersey ethnic and community media from the Center for Cooperative Media at Montclair State University.

CBS News is the major winner, with Norah O’Donnell Investigates: Sexual Assault in the Military bagging the 2021 Gold Keyboard Award, the competition’s highest honor. CBS News and The New York Times were the top award winners with nine and eight respectively.

Additional winners in 30 categories were selected from almost 600 entries submitted by TV, radio, newspapers, websites, magazines, and newswires in New York City and around the U.S. Awards will be presented later this summer during an online event.

New York Press Club President Debra Toppeta applauded all the award recipients and added that the level of entries attests to the continued good health of journalism and the wonderful work journalists do. "We had a record number of contestants this year, all from stand-out reporters, editors and producers," said Toppeta. "During a difficult year with numerous challenges, the work of journalists continued at a high level, a testament to their dedication to the profession."
