Mahilig ka ba sa powedered drinks?
Eh sa alcoholic drinks?
Kung ganun, handa ka na ba sa parating na bagong produkto na ito?
Meet PALCOHOL. As in Powered Alcohol. Isang bagong produkto na ilalabas pa lang sa U.S. Katulad ng iyong paboritong juice drink, kailangan mo lang ng tubig (o ang iyong paboritong mixer) at presto, may inumin ka na! Dahil nga powdered form at nasa pakete, madali itong dalhin ('di ka na dadala ng mabigat na bote, o maghanap ng bar sa paligid).
Ang ilalabas na Palcohol ay may dalawang variants - Vodka at Puerto Rican Rum. May balak din silang maglabas ng mga cocktail flavors tulad ng Cosmopolitan at Mojito.
Aprubado na ang produktong ito sa U.S. at ibebenta na ito ngayong taon. Para naman sa mga hindi makapaghintay, pwedeng mag order ng Palcohol via online kung gusto mong bumili kapag available na ito sa publiko. Paalala lang na ang powdered alcohol na ito ay dinesenyo upang inumin (kaya kapag may mga baliw jan na gustong hithitin ito, hindi din ninyo mae-enjoy yan).
Para sa karagdagang impormasyon, pumunta lamang sa Official Palcohol Website.
BABALA: Ang produktong ito ay para lamang sa mga nasa legal na edad, 18 pataas.

Meanwhile, on the show business side of the country, netizens are on a stir after the local actor/host Vhong Navarro got jumped in by a couple of guys and accused of raping a friend. Furthermore, our countrymen affected by last year's Yolanda (Haiyan) are steadily recovering from the event.

Actor Paul Walker, best known for his roles in the Fast and the Furious action movies, has died in a car crash in Southern California, his publicist said.
Walker, 40, who was in five of the six films about illegal street racing and heists, was a passenger in a friend's car and was attending a charity event, according to a message linked to his Twitter account.
"Sadly, I must confirm that Paul did pass away this afternoon in a car accident," Ame Van Iden, Walker's publicist, said in an email.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department said in a statement that two people were killed in a car accident in Valencia, a community in the city of Santa Clarita, at about 3:30pm.
Deputies arriving at the scene found the vehicle engulfed in flames. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene, the statement said.
The office did not provide the identities of the dead, and said the cause was under investigation.
In the Fast and Furious pictures, the blond-haired, blue-eyed actor played Brian O'Conner, a law enforcement official.
The first movie in the series, which stars Vin Diesel, was released in 2001, and a seventh was in development at the time of his death, Universal, the studio behind the franchise, said in a statement. The most recent film, released in May, was one of this year's biggest box office hits.
"Brother I will miss you very much," Diesel said in a post on Instagram, adding "I am absolutely speechless. Heaven has gained a new Angel. Rest in Peace."
"Paul was truly one of the most beloved and respected members of our studio family for 14 years, and this loss is devastating to us, to everyone involved with the Fast and Furious films, and to countless fans."
More tributes flowed on social media websites such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
"So sad. He gave a lot of joy," wrote James Franco, while model/actor Tyson Beckford posted "Tyson Beckford: RIP Paul Walker, loved working with you on "Into the Blue."
Television host Carson Daly said that he was "Sick about the tragic loss of #PaulWalker. I enjoyed our time together very much. Such a really nice guy," while actress Alyssa Milano, current host of "Project Runway All Stars," protested "No. No. No" before adding "Rest with the angels."

By Sheila Crisostomo (The Philippine Star) | Updated July 14, 2013 - 12:00am
MANILA, Philippines - Health workers are up in arms after the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) stopped providing free basic laboratory services to charity patients starting last Friday.
Jossel Ebesate, president of the Alliance of Health Workers (AHW), said PGH’s decision is deplorable and detrimental to poor patients.
“They just came up with a memorandum, implementing that without consultation with the patients and even the implementers of services like the doctors, the nurses, the medical technologies and others. It is not beneficial to poor patients,” Ebesate said in Filipino.
He also claimed that the memorandum was dated July 4 and signed by PGH director Jose Gonzales and approved by the Board of Regents of the University of the Philippines (UP) that runs the PGH.
The policy covers complete blood count, urinalysis, x-ray and other basic laboratory services.
In a statement to The STAR, Margarita Lat-Luna, PGH deputy director for fiscal services, denied that such free services had been suspended.
“The statement is attributed to the fact that all lab exams have rates now, but it doesn’t automatically mean that the cost will not be waived,” Luna said.
“Rates were assigned so that we can quantify the cost of services that are not charged to the patients,” she noted.
“Monthly, we have reports of how much is waived. The first basic exams are automatically waived,” she added.
Ebesate, however, said that patients who want fees to be waived would have to seek approval from the department heads, thus prolonging the process.
“Before, patients have already had to endure a long wait before they could undergo free laboratory. With this policy, we can expect them to wait much longer because they have to get the approval first. It’s like having no free labs at all,” he added.
Ebesate also said that Gonzales first attempted to implement the policy “one or two years ago” but it had to be shelved when it met resistance from PGH personnel and patients.
“Now they are doing it again. They would cite lack of budget and that they just want to monitor the free services rendered to patients. But what they are sacrificing are the poor patients,” he noted.
Third-year Medicine student Adrian Sampang also expressed concerns that this development would deprive indigent patients of a chance to get quality services at the PGH because laboratory services are vital to the management of their illnesses.
“Being able to get free services is a big help for charity patients. In the first place, they won’t be going to PGH (charity section) if they have the money,” said Sampang, vice-chair of the UP-Manila University Student Council.
He also said that many indigent patients could not even afford some basic medical supplies like gauze and syringes, prompting “kind hearted” medicine students to provide it for them.
“In my personal opinion, services should be free for charity patients. The government should be providing quality and free services especially to those who can afford it,” he added.

Here is the list of the 2012 Bar Exam Passers announced March 20, 2013
The Philippine Government and the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) have reached an agreement. Both parties have concluded negotiations on the Framework Agreement which was held at the State Room of the Palace of the Golden Horses hotel in Kuala Lumpur and have peacefully achieved something that we may call as a "historical moment" not only for the political side of the country but for our nation as a whole.
Soon enough, there will be no more Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) and will be replaced with an all new autonomous political entity: the "Bangsamoro." Bangsamoro is seen to be established by 2016 and will be created through an Executive Order and supported by Congressional resolutions.
"The ARMM (Autonomous Region of Muslim Mindanao) is a failed experiment. Many of the people continue to feel alienated by the system, and those who feel that there is no way out will continue to articulate their grievances through the barrel of a gun," the President stated, and is looking forward in paving a "final, enduring peace in Mindanao."
Its core territory will be the present five-province, two-city Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao, the six towns in Lanao del Norte (Baloi, Munai, Nunungan, Pantar, Tagoloan and Tangkal) and the barangays in the towns of Kabacan, Carmen, Aleosan, Pigcawayan, Pikit and Midsayap that voted for inclusion it he 2001 plebiscite; the cities of Cotabato and Isabela in Basilan and all other contiguous areas where there is a resolution of the local government unit or there is a petition of at least ten percent of the qualified voters in their area.
The agreement is set to be signed in Manila next week, but no exact date and place has been set yet. The Framework Agreement will be signed in the presence of Aquino, Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak, and MILF chief Al Haj Murad Ibrahim
