Yamaha unveils artsy 45-foot mural in BGC inspired by Mio’s campaign, ‘What’s your culture?’
Written By: Kenneth M. del Rosario Yamaha Motor Philippines, Inc. recently unveiled a trendy 45-foot mural at the Bonifacio Global City in Taguig. It's an artwork that revolves around---and heavily inspired by---Mio's campaign, "What's your culture?" It's a loaded question-turned-campaign slogan, for sure, but one that allows individuals to take pause and think of a meaningful answer to it. The mural, in fact, features many types of cultures, all interconnected with one another. One thing that connects Yamaha Mio and the gigantic mural is art---the former is literally art in motion, a masterpiece on the road; while the mural is an expression of creativity.

Can molnupiravir cause cancer and birth defects?
(Conclusion) In last week's column, we discussed that ivermectin and molnupiravir may both be considered valuable additions to our early-treatment regimen for COVID-19. Despite the expected pricey cost of molnupiravir, we still consider it as cost-effective, in relation to the stiffer direct and indirect costs of lockdowns and healthcare exhaustion on the national health and economy. Of course, the much cheaper ivermectin is likely to be, hands down, more cost-effective. There are some basic differences, though, between the two. Ivermectin appears to be more versatile, and is able to work against the virus on several sites, while molnupiravir works in a more specific, limited site ...Keep on reading: Can molnupiravir cause cancer and birth defects?

A mind that can bend spoons, fix broken objects
Uri Geller is an internationally known psychic from Israel, who first gained recognition for his ability to bend metallic spoons, coins and keys by sheer mental power, known as telekinesis or psychokinesis. Although there were skeptics who tried to show that Geller's spoon bending was done through trickery and sleight of hand, he was never proven to be merely faking the process. A well-known publicity-seeking Canadian-American magician tried for several years to show that Geller was using trickery, but this was never proven. Several scientific studies have been conducted on Geller's unusual ability and proved that it is possible to bend metallic spoons, etc., with one's mind.
