On BIR advertisement describing physician as tax evaders

A teacher carries a doctor – when that TV ad went viral, BIR commissioner Kim Henares,  was quoted in media saying a BIR advertisement describes physician as tax cheats.

Senator Nancy Binay  called for a Senate probe on the controversial Bureau of Internal Revenue print ad depicting doctors as tax evaders.

In a statement via GMA News, Binay questioned the BIR’s decision to use doctors to depict tax cheats in the agency’s scare and shame campaign.

In a separate issue regarding tax evading, Cigarette manufacturer Mighty Corp. has paid an excise tax of P8 billion for the year 2013, a quantum leap from the modest P300 million it shelled out the previous year.

Oscar Barrientos, Mighty Corp. executive vice president said the tax payment for last year should put to rest false accusations that their company has not been paying its correct duties and taxes.

“The tax we paid for the year 2013  reflects the jump in our market share and our fair share in the increased taxes on “sin” products during last year,” said

Currently, they have six high school and 14 college students on scholarship in various schools nationwide.

Meanwhile, Retired judge Oscar Barrientos, MC executive vice president and spokesman, said the foundation offered scholarships to the dependents of active MC employees but later expanded the program to include dependents of retired MC employees and poor but deserving students with excellent academic record.

Boost Memory Health for College with USANA Health Science’s BiOmega

Schools are bound to open in a few weeks and college students require all the help that they can get to keep up with all their academic requirements.

Luckily, USANA Health Sciences has BiOmega can help enhance the memory and aid the students to excel academically. For more information about this, email me at carlvalenzona@gmail.com

ImageThe rigors of schoolwork become progressively more challenging as students move from one academic level to the next. This is undoubtedly true, especially when students reach college. From long lists of school requirements and heightened expectations, college students will definitely have to do tons of heavy intellectual work on their part. It is no wonder; therefore, that some college students take health and dietary supplements to help improve their cognitive function.

With a wide array of supplements to choose from these days, one product manages to stand out and be perfectly suitable for them—BiOmega by USANA Health Sciences. BiOmega is perfect for adults with heightened memory requirements.

“It is important that we are careful with the vitamins and supplements that we take,” says USANA Philippines General Manager Aurora “Duday” Gaston. “As such, we need to make sure that the ones we take actually work and will not cause any untoward effects to us.”

BiOmega is rich in essential fatty acids, commonly found in fish oil, with added lemon oil flavoring, there is no fishy aftertaste. These Omega 3 fatty acids: eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) – work to enhance memory efficiency and learning. DHA is a basic structural component of the brain that helps improve cognitive function, particularly in terms of improving memory, vocabulary and reasoning skills. Studies also claim that taking recommended doses of EPA has been known to fight symptoms of depression. Aside from the brain, both EPA and DHA help support the circulatory system, immune system, joints and connective tissues.

In addition to the heart health benefits, studies have shown omega-3 fatty acids, in the form of fish oil supplements, to be effective in supporting neural development and function, and maintaining good bone health. Many studies indicate that taking omega-3 dietary supplements helps the body maintain a normal, healthy inflammatory response. Finally, DHA is also an important structural component of the retina and is, therefore, essential for eye development and growth.

Moreover, BioOmega’s formula is virtually free of harmful contaminants. While some health experts have warned us to limit our intake of certain fish due to the presence of possible contaminants, BioOmega is manufactured with the highest standards in mind. It goes through a double-molecular distillation, which helps ensure its utmost purity, removing heavy metal, PCBs, pesticides and organic resides along the way.
