#HalleLuyangDilaw : Trying out Turcumin Food Supplement

I been using turmeric as a way of combating inflammation that comes with body pains. Why? Simply because many grandmothers recommend it. I only come to believe it when my ankle was so inflamed and painful due to wrong posture while sleeping. Even a week of Diclofenac Sodium and Bengay massages provides little comfort. So bought fresh turmeric, boiled it and drink it like tea - like salabat and the pain and inflammation drastically gone in just 3 days.

The problem is fresh turmeric is not that abundant in the market unlike ginger. So, the next alternative is to buy powdered turmeric in supermarket's spices section. Sadly, after 3 days of opening a powdered turmeric its taste, effectiveness and potency will be gone. After a few years, a co-blogger featured Turcumin, right on the spot, i knew it will be the solution to my non-potent turmeric problem.

Why did I say that it is the solution to my non-potent turmeric problem? First, i dont need to look for turmeric in the market, its not that easily available. Second, i dont need to prepare like slice and boil and let it cool before drinking. with this, ill just pop out the pill. Third and the most important reason of all, unlike fresh or powdered turmeric, this Turcumin will all be potent in both strength and benefits because it is sealed in its capsule and blister pack.

Turmeric promises many medicinal benefits like anti-inflamation, anti-free radicals, anti-oxidant and many more BUT there is no clinical studies and researches for it thus I do know and I am aware that Turcumin is not a drug nor can treat illnesses. but i will still try Turcumin simply because of its content - the turmeric - can help me with my occasional painful knee and ankle.

for the first week of trial ill take one capsule a day then on the 8th day, ill pop twice a day (if there's no adverse reaction to me). Ill report in this blog and to social mediacast anything i observed. for the mean time, lets use the hashtags #Turcumin #HalleLuyangDilaw #HealthRichPharma for us to monitor other users observations and testaments.

Cebu Pacific Air orders 16 ATR-72-600s at the Paris Airshow

Le Bourget
16 June 2015

The Philippines’ leading airline, Cebu Pacific Air (PSE:CEB), ordered 16 ATR72 -600 from ATR, the European Turboprop aircraft manufacturer. At the Paris Air Show, Cebu Pacific and ATR announced that the order includes options to acquire an additional 10 ATR72-600, valuing the total aircraft order at US$673 million, based on current list prices. The transaction will see Cebu Pacific double its turboprop fleet size, subject to the execution of final purchase documentation.

The order is part of Cebu Pacific’s fleet renewal program. Cebu Pacific currently operates a fleet of eight ATR 72-500 aircraft, which will be retired as the new aircraft enter service. The entry into service of the ATR 72-600 will see Cebu Pacific with new generation aircraft to meet growing demand in the Philippines for inter-island services.

ATR aircraft enjoy a high reputation not only for versatility but also for their ability to operate on short runways. This will allow Cebu Pacific to expand its operations not only on main airports but also to several other airports around the country, enabling Cebu Pacific to continue to play a leading role in the development of regional transport, tourism, and local economy in the Philippines.

The ATR 72-600 ordered by Cebu Pacific will be equipped, for the first time, with the high density Armonia cabin, the widest cabin in the turboprop market. It will be equipped with 78 slim-line seats and wider overhead bins with 30% more stowage space. These new technological innovations further enhance space and comfort for passengers.

About 330 ATRs – including more than 100 ATR 72-600s – are currently operated by 55 airlines in the Asia-Pacific region, where for many years now, they have been seen as the reference regional aircraft. The ATR 72-600 has the lowest cost per seat mile in the 70 seat segment, with significantly lower fuel and maintenance costs compared to similar class aircraft.

On their new order from ATR, Lance Y. Gokongwei, President and CEO of Cebu Pacific states: "We have been operating ATR aircraft since 2008, and they have enabled us to bring safe, reliable, and affordable air transport to smaller cities and islands throughout the Philippines. This order is an affirmation of our commitment to extend the convenience of affordable air travel to even more communities. We are very pleased to be the launch customer of this new configuration of the ATR 72-600, as this will allow us to offer our customers more seats at even lower fares.”

Patrick de Castelbajac, Chief Executive Officer of ATR, declares to be "very happy to continue our partnership with one of the leading airlines in South-East Asia and to contribute to the expansion of its network throughout the islands of the archipelago. Cebu Pacific will also be able to benefit from the vast support network for ATR operators in Asia. When their first ATR 72-600 arrives, there will be five ATR pilot training centers in the region."

Passenger capacity: 68 to 78 seats
Engines: Pratt & Whitney Canada PW 127M
Maximum take-off power: 2,750 horsepower per engine
Maximum take-off weight: 23,000 kg
