Kuya Kim Joins Phuket's Vegetarian Festival in 'Matanglawin'

- 0 comments

The country’s Trivia King Kim Atienza experiences one of Phuket’s most famous annual events– the Vegetarian Festival—in the second part of “Matanglawin’s” Phuket adventure this Sunday (Nov 2).



The Vegetarian Festival is not only a celebration of all things green, but also Thais’ way of getting closer to the gods by eating vegetarian food and participating in processions.


Some devotees would even pierce their bodies, most often their cheeks, with different objects because they believe that the gods or spirits possess them so that they can withstand the pain. Some also walk on live coals and climb meters up and down ladders made of blades.



Find out more of Thailand’s religious traditions and beliefs this Sunday (Nov 2) on “Matanglawin,” 10 AM on ABS-CBN. For more updates, follow @matanglawintv on Twitter or like www.facebook.com/matanglawintv.

"Mahirap naman 'yon. Hindi naman tayo nagmamalinis, pero bilang lalaki, 'no, dapat malalaman mo kung meron ka. Hindi lang lukso ng dugo," Cruz said. "Ginagawa mo 'yan eh. Kung ginawa mo 'yung isang bagay na 'yon. Hindi mo siya pwedeng, 'huh?! Hindi ko alam kung akin iyon.' Iyon lang 'yung akin," he said.

ABS-CBN Wins $10 Million Against Internet Pirate

- 0 comments

Hinatulan na ng U.S. Federal District Court sa Oregon ang isinampang kaso ng ABS-CBN na Copyright at Trademark Infringement laban kay Jeffrey Ashby. Si Ashby ay hinatulang magbayad ng danyos na nagkakahalagang $10 million para sa pagpapalabas ng mga shows at movies ng ABS-CBN sa kaniyang mga websites.



Ilan sa mga websites na pagmamay-ari ni Ashby ay ang watchfilipinotv.com, watchfilipinomovies.com, at pinoytalaga.com. Sa ngayon ay naka-permament shutdown na ang mga websites na pagmamay-ari ni Ashby. Sa ngayon ay permanente nang pinatigil at pinasara ang mga website na pag-aari ni Ashby.


Nagbigay naman si Ashby ng pahayag tungkol sa $10 million worth of damages na ipinataw sa kaniya: “Gusto ko lang bigyang-babala ang sinuman na kumukopya at nagpapalabas ng mga programa at palabas na pag-aari ng ABS-CBN nang walang paalam, na agad nang itigil ang pagsagawa nito. Ang patuloy na paggawa nito nang walang awtorisasyon ay mauuwi sa mabigat at seryosong kahihinatnan.”


“Si Jeff Ashby ang isa sa mga napakaraming pirata na tinutugis namin,” ani Elisha Lawrence, Assistant Vice President ng Global Anti-Piracy for ABS-CBN International. “Sinimulan na namin ang walang-lubag na kampanya laban sa mga piratang websites, dahilan na rin sa maraming nagsusumbong na ang mga sites na ito ay may taglay na peligrosong malware na nakakapinsala, kasama na dito ang identity theft ng financial information at mga phishing attacks.”


Ang ABS-CBN ay nakipag-ugnayan kamakailan sa Crime Stoppers U.S.A. para usigin ang mga pirata. Sa pagtawag sa 1-800-222-TIPS (847) or sa pagtext ng mga tip sa TIPLA at sa 274637, ang mga magsusumbong ay makakatanggap ng pabuya kung mahahatulan ang kanilang naisumbong na pirata.



Ang ABS-CBN ay kinakatawan nila Matt Levin ng Markowitz Herbold PC sa Oregon, Tony Onorato ng Steptoe & Johnson sa New York, at ni Stephen Gaffigan sa Florida para sa kaso.
