SM Prime invests in future sustainability leaders with scholarship program

Future sustainability leaders. Strengthening its commitment to both educational access and sustainability stewardship, SM Prime welcomes ten scholars from UPLB, who are taking up degrees in either Bachelor of Science in Human Ecology or Bachelor of Science in Forestry.

Inspired by the late Henry Sy Sr.’s belief in the power of education and driven by their commitment to sustainability, leading integrated property developer SM Prime Holdings, Inc. (SM Prime) has launched a scholarship program in partnership with the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB).

Aptly called the “SM Sustainability Scholarship,” the initiative reflects SM Prime’s commitment to both educational access and sustainability stewardship.

The program will fully support ten deserving students through their undergraduate studies at UPLB, providing them with the opportunity to pursue degrees in either Bachelor of Science in Human Ecology or Bachelor of Science in Forestry. These fields align with SM Prime’s focus on building resilient communities and fostering a sustainable future.

The scholarship recipients, meticulously chosen for their academic excellence and dedication to sustainability, were formally recognized during a meet-and-greet gathering at UPLB, marking the start of their journey as SM Sustainability Scholars.

Babierra, Ph.D., College of Forestry and Natural Resources’s Prof. Marilyn Combalicer, College of Human Ecology Dean Dr. Jennifer Amparo, Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Dr, Janette Malata-Silva, Scholarship Affairs Officer Ivy Salarde and SM Prime AVP Rida Reyes-Castillo with the rest of the SM team.

Each scholar will receive a full scholarship covering tuition fees, a monthly living allowance, and a book allowance, ensuring they can focus on their studies without financial worries.
During the gathering, College of Human Ecology (CHE) Dean Dr. Jennifer Amparo expressed that the pursuit of sustainability is most effectively undertaken collaboratively.

“CHE is one of the colleges that puts a premium on interdisciplinarity and trans-disciplinarity because we believe that in sustainability, you don’t work in silos. We need to work together and build each other’s skills, know-how, and also our programs together to ensure sustainability,” she said.

“I would also like to thank SM Prime for putting emphasis on this scholarship. SM Prime did not just provide the finances or scholarship. They invested the time to really meet our scholars and provided other support mechanisms to ensure that our scholars thrive in their academic lives. This is also a manifestation of SM’s commitment to sustainability by really developing our future sustainability leaders,” she added.

College of Forestry and Natural Resources’ Prof. Marilyn Combalicer also extended the college’s support to the scholars on behalf of the college’s dean, Dr. Marlo Mendoza: “We hope to continue nurturing such meaningful collaboration and initiatives that enhance our educational experience and initiatives for our students. Rest assured that we will continue providing support to our students in ensuring their growth and success in both academia and beyond.”

SM Prime’s AVP Rida Reyes-Castillo meets the SM sustainability scholars.

Meanwhile, SM Prime AVP and Head of Marketing, PR and Corporate Communications, Rida Reyes-Castillo, echoed that the fundamental values of the company are intricately interwoven with both education and sustainability.

“SM Group’s founder, Mr. Henry “Tatang” Sy, Sr. believed that education is a great equalizer, and he envisioned that sending one child to college would create ripples of social good not just for families but for an entire community,” she said. “The improvement of the well-being of the youth and the partner communities is something that we at SM invest in.”

For decades, the SM group has embraced the responsibility to contribute to nation building through social good programs that are geared towards quality education, sustainable agriculture, healthcare, and disaster response. By helping improve the quality of life of the people in these host communities, social development and investment go hand in hand with business growth to achieve a better future for all.

This is a paid partnership with SM Prime Holdings.

A moment that changed lives SM scholars recall the beginning of their SM scholar journey

Some moments fade with time, certain experiences leave an indelible mark, shaping not just our paths but our very identities. For Atty. Marmie Deniega and Amanda Hora, the SM scholarship application wasn’t just a gateway to education; it was the moment that shaped the life they live today.

The first to obtain a degree in the family

A family legacy, SM scholar Amanda Hora becomes the first in her family to earn a degree.

Amanda’s unforgettable story as an SM scholar began when she stumbled upon a Facebook post about the SM scholarship application.

“It has always been my dream to pursue a quality education without the burden of tuition expenses. I enrolled in a university in Senior High School because of a scholarship, and I know that the only way to continue my college years at the same university is to obtain another full scholarship. That is why I never hesitated to apply for the SM scholarship, hoping to be accepted,” she said.

In the quiet hours of the night several years back, an email from the SM Foundation lit up her phone’s screen, informing her that she had been selected for their scholarship program.

The acceptance was a mark that she was a few steps away from fulfilling another goal: “I pursued college because I wanted to become the first in our family to get a college degree.”

“My parents did not finish their studies due to financial difficulties, but they’ve always been supportive of my dreams and aspirations. Also, I believe in the importance of quality education. It is something that nobody can take away,” she added.

Amanda snaps a photo with her family as she graduated cum laude with a degree in BS accountancy in 2023.

The scholarship opened doors throughout her college years. Beyond the academic realm, she had the opportunities to join competitions, intern at prestigious firms, and build a network that extended far beyond the classroom.

She shared: “As a scholar, the foundation’s programs and webinars allowed me to hear inspiring stories from other scholars, mentoring and motivating us to pursue our goals. When COVID-19 affected the country and whenever there were calamities, the SM Foundation looked after us. They provided us with tools that are essential for remote learning. It made me feel that I am part of a bigger family and that I am not alone in this journey.”

These experiences paved academic and personal growth. As she graduated cum laude with a degree in BS accountancy in 2023, she aims to contribute to the community by creating a ripple effect of kindness.

“I would use my knowledge to find ways to provide livelihood programs, especially in areas or communities where it is much needed. I would also advocate for financial literacy to help people effectively manage their finances and build resilience, especially during unpredictable life events. I would also use my story to inspire the youth, especially the current and future scholars, and remind them to never give up on their dreams,” she shared.

Scholar makes an impact on the community

Much like Amanda is CPA-lawyer Marmie Dyan Deniega.

Raised by a single mother amid financial struggles, the pursuit of a college degree seemed like an unattainable dream until she chanced upon a TV commercial that introduced her to the SM College Scholarship.

Recalling vividly the moment, she shares: “My mother and I were watching the television. The commercial for SM Foundation came in, and the application deadline was flashed through the screen. Coincidentally, it was on that day itself, so I rushed and submitted my application at the nearest SM Mall.”

The scholarship became the cornerstone of Marmie’s academic success. She graduated with cum laude honors in Accountancy from the University of San Jose-Recoletos, crediting the scholarship for providing not only financial support but also the freedom to focus on her studies.

The scholarship not only shaped her academic journey but also fueled a sense of responsibility, which proved valuable when she pursued a law degree with the help of her aunt and part-time jobs.

Now successful in her field, Atty. Marmie travels and enjoys various leisure activities. Beyond this, she is thankful to have the capability to support her family.

Now, she proudly serves as an Attorney III at the Business Permit and Licensing Office (BPLO) of Mandaue City, actively contributing to her community’s development. She is one of the people who played a pivotal role in streamlining business permit processing in their city, making it more accessible to constituents.

As a firm believer in spreading social good, she finances the education of her siblings while actively engaging in community-based projects. She also stands as a resource speaker in schools for several crucial topics, such as the Anti-Bullying Law.

Apart from legal aid work in far-flung areas in Cebu, through the Integrated Bar of the Philippines-Cebu Chapter, she also volunteers with Law Inc., an organization helping victims of Violence Against Women and Children (VAWC). She conducts seminars across various locations in Cebu, shedding light on the intricacies of VAWC.

In the confines of her office, clients naturally turn to her for legal advice, seeking guidance on various matters: “It cannot be helped that clients will also seek legal advice from me, hence I also make it a point to help them, to the best of my ability, and within the boundaries set by law.”

Amanda and Marmie’s stories are not just individual triumphs but testaments to the impact of education. Each year, countless dreamers like them are empowered to pursue their academic aspirations and chart their paths to success through the SM College Scholarship Program.

As the application for the SM College Scholarship Program opens from Feb. 1 to March 31, 2024, countless more lives stand to be touched.

The World’s Thinnest Foldable Phone HONOR Magic V2 is now available

HONOR Magic V2 is now official in PH for only Php 79,999!
Don’t miss HONOR Magic V2 pre-order for freebies worth Php 28,000!

Manila, Philippines, February 21, 2024 – Global technology brand HONOR officially launched the world’s thinnest foldable phone HONOR Magic V2 for only Php 79,999 with exciting pre-order freebies HONOR Watch GS 3 and Harman Kardon Aura Studio 4 HIFI Speaker worth Php 28,000 in total! HONOR Magic V2 is now available for pre-order on HONOR Experience and Partner Stores or online via Shopee, Lazada, and TikTok Shop!

“The HONOR Magic V2 redefines the benchmark for foldable smartphones while prioritizing the essentials of a top-tier slate phone. The ultra-slim device is crafted to offer unparalleled functionality and a sleek, sophisticated design that is unrivaled in the market,” said HONOR Philippines Vice President Stephen Cheng.

HONOR Super-light Titanium Hinge: A Groundbreaking First in the Industry Materials

For the first time, HONOR has utilized titanium alloy in the hinge cover, an aerospace-grade material and a pioneering innovation in the hinge design of foldable smartphone industry. Titanium possesses the ideal balance between weight and strength, being lighter than aluminum and stronger than steel. It is a material that embodies the trifecta of ultra-lightness, ultra-toughness, and ultra-corrosion-resistance, making it the perfect alloy for a plethora of applications.

After numerous verifications and tests conducted by the HONOR research and development team, it has been proven that when it comes to the hinge shaft cover part, the titanium alloy is a superior alternative to other conventional materials. Compared to the aluminum alloy shaft covers, the titanium alloy exhibits an impressive 150% higher strength, making it a much more desirable option material for a lightweight foldable smartphone.

Meanwhile, the titanium alloy intrinsically has a higher melting point of 1650°C, compared to only 650°C in more conventional foldable hinge materials such as aluminum alloys, which also illustrates HONOR’s all-new improved hinge is unparalleled strength.

In addition, HONOR‘s proprietary steel, a cutting-edge material inspired by steel used in tunnel boring applications, has been expertly created for use in the hinge’s main body of the HONOR Magic V2. This innovative material offers a perfect balance between thinness and durability, resulting in a slim and robust design that sets a new standard for excellence. This cutting-edge material is 25% thinner and 20% stronger compared to its counterpart in HONOR Magic Vs. What’s more, HONOR’s proprietary steel makes up for 67% of the hinge. Considering that it forms most of the hinge mechanism, the proprietary material complements the titanium alloy to ensure that the HONOR Magic V2 is endowed with the robustness to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use.

Advanced structure
The redesigned support structure of the hinge is significantly improved over its predecessor, with thickness reduced by an impressive 75% and the depth of fold marks on the inner screen reduced by 47%. Furthermore, unique to the HONOR Magic V2’s hinge, an advanced “brake caliper” damping structure comprised of seven set of cams – three set more than that of HONOR’s previous foldables – that provides a more stable and elegant experience with smooth opening and closing. Thanks to the addition of this component, the hinge enables an exceptional free hovering experience with different angles, enhancing user experiences with features like hover photography, hover movie viewing, and hover conferencing, among other practical applications.

Another latest breakthrough is HONOR’s self-developed micro lock, a connective component built with HONOR’s proprietary steel. This minuscule component boasts a size equivalent to that of a mere grain of rice and is 20 to 100 times smaller than its counterparts used in the previous HONOR foldable smartphone. This precision-manufactured, lightweight and robust component is perfectly suited to preventing screen misalignment and creases, ensuring optimal performance.

In HONOR’s pursuit for absolute thinness, even inconspicuous components such as screws are innovated upon. Inside the Titanium Alloy Hinge, custom short screws are used to minimize the height of the hinge structure, and they do so without compromising the robustness of the mechanism.

HONOR’s proprietary micro lock, applied to the hinge components’ connections, represents a breakthrough in craftsmanship. The fusion of ultra-precise manufacturing techniques and robust materials effectively mitigates fold marks resulting from screen misalignments. Additionally, the custom high-precision nuts – the industry’s most accurate and compact nuts (0.75 x φ2.9mm) – offer a one-of-a-kind fastening solution for securing hinge components. This innovative fastening structure outperforms conventional nuts, optimizing space utilization within the device.

The mortise and tenon integral molding technology allows successful integration of the hinge shaft cover and hinge body, which significantly reduces the internal space and overall thickness of the hinge. HONOR’s innovative approach and its dedication in introducing increasingly “slender” foldable smartphones presents a comprehensive solution to the long-standing issue of thickness in folding displays screens.

Thanks to these breakthrough innovations, the HONOR Magic V2 can withstand more than 400,000 folds. Its exceptional properties pave the way for worry-free usage, even if the device is folded 100 times a day, ensuring a lifespan of up to ten years.

New Architecture for More Space and Power
The traditional “three-layer stacked” screen driver architecture has long been a major obstacle for the putting large batteries in thin and light folding screen mobile phones. By incorporating a groundbreaking “three-in-one” display driver component, HONOR took advantage of the additional internal space and fitted a 5000mAh Silicon-carbon Battery within the HONOR Magic V2. Embedding a 5000mAh battery into such a slim and lightweight body is a testament to HONOR’s unwavering commitment to pushing the boundaries of technological innovation and engineering excellence, choosing the correct albeit challenging path to success.

HONOR Ultra-thin Bionic VC Cooling System
Smartphones, particularly those with powerful processors and advanced features, require effective cooling systems to prevent overheating, maintain optimal performance, and ensure long-term durability. The HONOR Ultra-thin Bionic VC Cooling System addresses these needs by employing a multi-layer approach, the cooling system incorporates advanced materials such as ultra-thin vapor chamber (VC), ultra-high thermal conductivity graphite, thermal conductivity gel, copper foil, and high thermal conductivity AL middle frame. Despite the constraints of ultra-thin device thickness, this innovative HONOR Ultra-thin Bionic VC cooling system maximizes every inch to deliver exceptional efficiency in cooling.

The bionic VC is designed to replicate the natural thickness of cicada wings, measuring an incredible 0.22mm, and the whole cooling system boasts a cooling area of 29,000 square meters, a 12.5% increase from the previous generation, and adorns the HONOR Magic V2 with another industry-leading accolade.

The Wraparound Antenna Extension Technology 2.0
HONOR has succeeded in developing an ultra-thin antenna, which features a three-millimeter-thin design, making it the thinnest in the foldable industry. Moreover, this sleek design boasts a remarkably 10% higher antenna area than HONOR Magic Vs, delivering the best overall antenna performance in the industry.

Pre-order HONOR Magic V2 from February 21 to March 1, 2024, for Php 79,999 to get a FREE HONOR Watch GS 3 and Harman Kardon Aura Studio 4 HIFI Speaker worth Php 28,000 in total!

What went down at the fun-filled Infinix Xmas Festival

The Infinix Xmas Festival last December touched many people’s lives in various ways. The month-long promotional event was the top smartphone brand’s way of thanking its fans for their unwavering support. It brought together fun-loving Infinix fans who are on the hunt for the latest smartphones.

More than anything, Infinix Holiday SparX was about letting Filipinos feel the Christmas spirit, be it through exciting Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) games or special gifts.

The gift of giving
Infinix offered special discounts and promos on select smartphones during the Infinix Xmas Festival. Many people were able to cop the newest models as a treat to themselves or a gift to their loved ones. There was also a Lucky Draw raffle, where lucky winners took home prizes like the Infinix ZERO 30 (4G), Infinix ZERO Ultra, Ultra Smart Watch, and P10,000 worth of MLBB diamonds.

Lucky Draw winner Nina Torrejos from Cebu said she’s thankful to Infinix for giving her an Infinix ZERO Ultra during a tumultuous time in her life. “Our house burned down recently, so winning an Infinix ZERO Ultra feels like a blessing for me and my family,” she said.

Select TikTok affiliates were also able to take home Smart Watches after joining Infinix’s Go X-tra Affiliate program. JoshinTek (@nickoitek) said he felt motivated to spread the good news about Infinix’s affordability during the Holiday SparX event. “Nakita ko ang good quality ni Infinix kaya I was eager to sell it and share the good news to other people that this phone brand can suit their budget,” he said.

“Maraming salamat Infinix for having this promo. It truly helped me not just gain and engage more with my followers, it helped me have a wonderful holiday season. I hope you will have this more very soon,” said @techmno.

Partying with XFans
Infinix gathered fans, gamers, and smartphone enthusiasts to the three-day Holiday SparX event at the Market! Market! Activity Center. The event featured selling booths with discounted smartphones, experiential zones, and even a live MLBB-friendly match.

The match featured two MLBB teams, Team Pampamilya and Team Pride of Echo, and Infinix ambassadors Cherizawa and Yskaela. It was a fun and intense match-up that showcased their skills while using Infinix phones. Ultimately, Team Pampamilya with Cherizawa came out victorious against Team Pride of Echo with Yskaela. “My favorite experience sa MLBB match game is yung makaakyat kami sa stage for the showmatch! Thankful ako sa brand dahil sa opportunity na ibinigay to us,” said Mima of Team Pride of Echo.

Infinix has been the official sponsor of the MLBB Professional League (MPL), where the brand promoted the local gaming and esports scene. Team Pampamilya was also the champion during the Guard Your Goddess Miya tournament, where they also utilized Infinix phones to play their best. “Ang go-to Infinix phone namin ay yung NOTE 30 5G dahil ito yung napanalunan namin sa Guard Your Goddess Miya tournament. Napaka-smooth ng games like Mobile Legends sa Infinix NOTE 30 5G. Nakakagaan sa paglalaro, at the same time, swak sa budget,” said Team Pampamilya.

Infinix Holiday SparX also offered experience booths where fans can check out smartphones up close, including the new Infinix ZERO 30 (4G), and make memories.

Porsche Lifestyle Group Stefan Buescher

January 19, 2024 – Global technology brand HONOR and Porsche Design unveiled the PORSCHE DESIGN HONOR Magic V2 RSR in Shanghai, China. Being the thinnest inward foldable phone in the market reflecting the expertise of the respective partner, the PORSCHE DESIGN HONOR Magic V2 RSR sets the stage for a future of innovation and design.

This momentous partnership between HONOR and Porsche Design is another best practice for HONOR, as a global and premium brand, to bring collective innovations to consumers around the world. As George Zhao, CEO of HONOR Device Co., Ltd., stated, “United by a shared pursuit of excellence, HONOR and Porsche Design will co-design the next generation of smart devices, combining human-centric technology and functional design to create exciting products for global consumers.”

“From day one of this extraordinary partnership, we have been eagerly awaiting the reveal of our first jointly developed smartphone. At Porsche Design, we want to bring the unique Porsche spirit and values to life through our products. Anyone who buys a Porsche Design item becomes part of the global Porsche family. Our goal is to transport this emotion as well as the progressive functionality, cutting-edge technology, and the unique design language to customers around the globe,” says Stefan Buescher, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche Lifestyle Group.

Introducing the PORSCHE DESIGN HONOR Magic V2 RSR

Debuting as the first innovation where HONOR’s human-centric approach meets the purist, functional aesthetics of Porsche Design, the PORSCHE DESIGN HONOR Magic V2 RSR features a bold design inspired by motorsports. The flyline of the backside of the industry-leading foldable smartphone is intricately reminiscent of the hood of a Porsche 911. The improved grip provides a sportscar experience in the user’s palm. The PORSCHE DESIGN HONOR Magic V2 RSR comes in the Porsche car color Agate Grey.

Ultra-thin foldable device with Anti-scratch NanoCrystal Shield

In pursuit of convenient portability, HONOR and Porsche Design have jointly refined the choice of materials in the PORSCHE DESIGN HONOR Magic V2 RSR to create a pioneering device that weighs only 234g and is just 9.9mm thick. Incorporating the industry’s first Anti-scratch NanoCrystal Shield, the PORSCHE DESIGN HONOR Magic V2 RSR races ahead of the pack with improvements in display durability, providing enhanced protection to the device. The tenfold improved scratch resistance and the hardness rating of over seven on the Mohs scale – a scale which indicates the degree of strength of a material – ensures superior resistance to damages.

Exceptional Display for Human-centric Visual Experience

The PORSCHE DESIGN HONOR Magic V2 RSR has a stunning foldable OLED LTPO display that offers an unprecedented visual experience. With support for 1.07 billion colors, the screen delivers vivid, accurate visuals that captivate and immerse users. As a testament to HONOR’s commitment to human-centric technology, the device incorporates eye protection features such as 3840Hz PWM Dimming, Dynamic Dimming and Circadian Night Display, which reduce fatigue of the eyes, thus, catering to the needs of heavy users.
