Vibal joins digitization project aiming to preserve Muslim history

Natural calamities like earthquakes and man-made disasters such as armed conflicts are not only taking a toll on the present lives of the people living in Mindanao, but also on its rich historical past. One example of these unfortunate events in recent memory is the Marawi crisis, a five-month long battle between the Philippine government and terrorist elements that took place in 2017. "Most of the madrasas or Islamic schools in Marawi contain libraries that had manuscripts. When we were in the discovery phase last May, we learned that one scholar who translated the whole Quran into the Maranao language that all of his works and the books that he used dating from around the 19th century were all burned inside a madrasa," said Jason Cristobal, the project coordinator of the digitization project of 17th to early 20th century Maranao manuscripts of the Lake Lanao region. "We were given the idea that most of the works of the Maranao scholars who had their libraries in that area were alre

Nature'Z-C: The 'FOURmula' for proper nutrition and good health

A few years ago, the Philippine government launched a campaign to promote proper nutrition on a per-meal basis. Dubbed Pinggang Pinoy, its aim is to be an “easy to understand food guide that uses a familiar food plate model” to give Filipinos an idea of what a healthy meal is. However, not all Filipinos have immediate access to meals that meet the recommended servings of Pinggang Pinoy. Because of this, they may not be able to supply their bodies with the right amount of essential nutrients. This in turn can lead to low energy levels, a weaker immune system, and poor daily performance, just to name a few. In line with the National Nutrition Month, New Marketlink Pharmaceutical Corporation (NMPC) offers Nature’Z-C, a dietary supplement that combines the power of four essential vitamins and minerals in one capsule to help Filipinos meet their recommended energy and nutrient requirements per meal. Just one capsule of Nature’Z-C a day provides all the necessary vitamins and minerals nee
