ABS-CBN LAUNCHES “BAYAN MO, IPATROL MO: TAYO NA” AT INDEPENDENCE DAY CEREMONY


ABS-CBN will launch its year-long election campaign dubbed as “Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo: Tayo Na” at the network’s flag-raising ceremony in commemoration of the 114 th  Philippine Independence Day on Tuesday (June 12), 8:20 a.m. on ABS-CBN.



A year before the 2013 midterm polls, ABS-CBN is empowering citizens to come and work together via “Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo: Tayo Na” that empowers Filipinos to stand up, protect each other, and move forward as a nation.

“’Tayo Na’ is a reiteration of our commitment and a reaffirmation of our mission to bring about change in our country. We call on different groups and individuals to effect change and show the world the triumph of hardworking citizen journalists,” said Ging Reyes, head of ABS-CBN News and Current Affairs.

ABS-CBN invites the public to register as ‘bayan patrollers’ at the “BMPM Tayo Na” inaugural program at the Quezon City Memorial Circle (Liwasang Aurora) on Tuesday, June 12 packed with talks on the significance of clean elections, & reporting election anomalies through the use of social media like Facebook, Twitter, etc., and performances from celebrity rockers Itchyworms, Barbie Almalbis, Ebe Dancel, and Kitchie Nadal.

On the same day, ANC will also present a special edition of “ANC Presents: The Road to 2013” featuring politicians and newsmakers who have signified their intention to run in the 2013 elections including Sen. Koko Pimentel, Manila mayor Alfredo Lim, and Rep. Risa Hontiveros. Watch them tackle their stand on the most pressing issues in the country with anchor Lynda Jumilla at 7 p.m. on ANC.

Also to be unveiled is TV Patrol’s “Beinte Singko Para sa Kabayan Ko” project that calls Filipinos to contribute their share in nation-building by dropping in 25 centavos in customized TV Patrol cans to be distributed in provinces all over the country.

The project, which is part of the 25 th  anniversary celebration of the country’s leading and longest-running Filipino newscast, aims to raise P2.5 million that will be granted to 25 families, individuals, and communities to help them recover from the calamities and tragedies of the past 25 years.

Apart from these, ABS-CBN Global  will also reveal the grand music video featuring band Aegis performing the ABS-CBN corporate theme for “Tayo ang Pilipino, Angat sa Mundo,” its global Independence Day campaign  that upholds Pinoy pride whenever Filipinos are in the world.

“Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo” started out as an election-focused citizen journalism campaign “Boto Mo, iPatrol Mo,” which ABS-CBN launched in 2007 that called on citizens to patrol their votes and push for clean elections by using technology and social media in monitoring irregularities in electoral processes such as voter registration, campaigning, ballot casting and counting.

In 2010, the “BMPM Ako ang Simula” campaign succeeded as individuals became accountable for their own future. This year, "Tayo Na!" aims to be a stronger force for change by empowering people to work together to protect the future of the country.

Don’t miss ABS-CBN’s Independence Day special “Bayang Malaya, Tayo Na!” to be hosted by “TV Patrol” anchors Noli De Castro, Korina Sanchez, and Ted Failon with a live rendition of the Philippine national anthem from the ABS-CBN Philharmonic Orchestra to be conducted by Maestro Gerard Salonga and special guests Raimund Marasigan, Aegis, the Philippine Azkals team, Pochoy Labog, and Nicole Asencio of General Luna on Tuesday (June 12), 8:20 a.m. on ABS-CBN and its simulcast on ANC (SkyCable Channel 27) and DZMM TeleRadyo (SkyCable Channel 26). Take part in patrolling for the elections by registering in the “Bayan Mo, iPatrol Mo: Tayo Na” at the Quezon City Memorial Circle.

PBB Unlimited Big Winner Slater Young preps up for showbiz career


Pinoy Big Brother Unlimited” Big Winner Slater Young said it would be best for current and aspiring PBB housemates to be themselves while staying inside the PBB house. 


 
“You just have to be real. Strategies are problematic because they would backfire on you. When you leave the house, it would work against you if you present something that’s not you inside the house,” said Slater, a licensed civil engineer who is determined to pursue a career in show business.
He may now be out of the heavily monitored Big Brother house but expect to see more of Slater as he enters a new chapter of his life after PBB.
“I really want to try acting and drama. I will be going through acting workshops while I wait for potential projects,” stated Slater, who is relocating to Manila.
Slater, who garnered almost 40% of the total votes to be crowned the Big Winner, would like to developed as a “serious actor” just like his idols John Lloyd Cruz and Pen Medina.  He also wishes to be paired up with host-actress KC Concepcion. “I’ve long had a crush on KC because she’s very simple yet classy,” he said.
Though his was a landslide victory, Slater said he still has to get used to being recognized in public places where random people greet him and request to have a picture with him taken. He recalled a recent incident in a mall when a mother came up to him and told him that she supported and voted for him because of the values he had shown inside the PBB house.

Slater took home P2 million, an appliance showcase, an Asian tour package, an Internet TV, a water-refilling store franchise, and a special appearance in a Kapamilya program in the United States.
He also revealed that he will be allocating a part of his prize money on the schooling of the kids of their company’s employees. “We already did it before. We usually support our employees’ children who are studying or enrolled in highly expensive courses like engineering and nursing,” said Slater, whose family in Cebu has a construction business.

Slater joined PBB to become more mature and independent. During his stay in the PBB house, he was regarded as a leader who exhibited cleverness in carrying out Big Brother’s challenges as well as compassion for his fellow housemates.


He bested the edition’s 32 housemates including fellow Big Four contenders Pamu Pamorada, Joseph Biggel, and Paco Evangelista.
Pamu was named the Second Big Placer after getting 21.49% of the votes and won P1 million. Tagged as the bold and cheerful “Kitikiti Kid of Batangas,” she stood her ground when she fell for ex-housemate Kevin and broke up with her then-boyfriend in the PBB house.

Nineteen year-old Joseph Biggel, the youngest among the Big Four housemates, was declared the Third Big Placer with 21.39% of the votes and brought home P500,000. The lad from Marinduque inspired viewers with his rousing story of being abandoned by his German father.

Wildcard housemate Paco, meanwhile, was crowned the Fourth Big Placer for getting 17.10% of the votes and won P300,000. He gained admiration for serving as a leader and more notably, as Big Brother’s house player who was tasked to bring out the true colors of his fellow housemates.
