On top of its triumph in Kumbira 2015, the MKA faculty showed where the heart, guts and savvy from that came from by holding the MKA banner high at the Philippine Culinary Cup 2015 held August 5-8, 2015 at SMX Convention Center in Pasay City. Chef Cathy Dano garnered a silver medal in the US Pork Category for her Sous vide cooked pork loin filled with mushrooms, cave aged gruyere cheese and herbs with gratinated bramata mais polenta, while Chef Rachel Baclay-Ng bagged a bronze medal in the pastry competition with her three-tiered fondant cake decorated with paintings of sugar paste flowers, gum paste couple topper with piped string works of royal icing, depicting a Love Story (Cake Decorating).

(FBPA). “MKA taught you leadership, professionalism, respect, hard work, and humility,” said Chef Cathy in her words of gratitude to the graduates. “We chose this path knowing the profession we’re in is not a piece of cake. It is only our skills and passion and love for what we do that makes it possible to provide the guest with an incredible experience.” MKA offers two flagship programs which give the

student three options on how to take it: 4 months (2x a week) or 6 months (every Sunday). Maximum class size is 16 though the average class size ranges from 10-12 students.

T

aguig, Philippines, – Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT) – the global leader in high-performance cybersecurity solutions, today announced the integration of the Fortinet FortiGate firewall solution into the Cisco® Application Policy Infrastructure Controller™ (APIC).

The new FortiGate Connector for Cisco ACI is designed with the security needs of software-defined data centers in mind, enabling physical and virtual networks to deploy policy-driven application services across Layer 4 – 7 fabrics. This integration further extends the Fortinet Software-Defined Network Security (SDNS) Framework, a first of its kind offering designed to provide advanced threat protection through the integration of security into modern, agile data center environments.

e love to complain! Many times we don’t have reasons at all to do so - but, we love to complain. We bring many assertions to bear: first, in the past we have been thriftier and economical, more religious and devout, more patriotic, industrious, more hard-working, keen and obedient. And, second, above everything and all: in the past we had more idealists. Third, nowadays we have (mostly?) material things in mind - what a disgrace. I just quoted Vox Populi... . A “materialist” has indeed become a swearword. I don’t mean with “material” the accumulated data out of which a writer creates a work of literary, historical, or scientific value. A materialist is being easily described as someone with an attitude, who ignores

spiritual values, compared with an idealist, who has the tendency to seek the highest spiritual perfection. Idealism means the doctrine that appearance is purely the perception, the idea of subjects, and that the world is to be regarded as consisting of mind. The coquetry of higher philosophy makes it difficult to bear the ups and downs in our daily life. Sure, we all know, that “our last earthly dress has no pockets any more”. Striving for earthly and terrestrial possession, property and estate might be the hit-man of idealism. That’s how we have been taught. “Wine, women and song”, having the unpleasant feeling of fullness, egoism and bragging as well as showing-off - are these the materialist’s real attitudes? Is the idealist,

many times not being able stand on earth with both feet, the only one who occupies himself with religion and virtuousness - so to speak, with celestial and heavenly things? Is that really so? Can we make such a distinction? Sure, it’s easy to so so: it’s manageable and comfortable. But well, why is the enjoyment having a tasty meal BAD, and listening a recital composed by Johann Sebastian Bach BETTER? Why should art be better than roasted pork and a bottle of wine? Value judgments and moral concepts... . Owning a house and lot and care are - of course - earthly properties, as well as bank saving accounts, profitable insurances, and invest advantageously stocks. Is a terrible underpaid nurse or a book author an idealist, because he or she doesn’t work for the filthy lure but

for higher values? Has Jesus been an idealist, because He re-nunciated and died without terrestrial possession? Has Jesus been a materialist, because He fed thousands of people on the breadline? Are we idealists, if we bequeath nothing to our families and might die without a single centavo, because earthly things are bad? +++ Email: doringklaus@gmail.com or follow me in Facebook or Twitter or visit www.germanexpatinthephilippines.blogspot. com or www.klausdoringsclassicialmusic. blogspot.com.

Liloan, Consolacion, Minglanilla and San Fernando. Under the demo program, VECO will study and evaluate the behavior and performance of Mitsubishi Motors’

zero emission pure electric car i-MiEV, via actual usage on Cebu roads. This will also enable VECO to make an assessment on the power requirements including cost and other technical related issues.

He added that VECO will be able to use the car and understand its performance and charging requirements. We are also hoping that we can include VECO as one of our partners in raising awareness of the public that pure electric vehicles in addition to being environment friendly, can be viable for daily use. The i-MiEV is an ultimate eco-car which was launched by Mitsubishi Motors in 2009. Aside from being environmentally friendly, the i-MiEV is also very economical since the cost per kilometer to drive the i-MiEV is one third of a comparable

gasoline vehicle. With its zero carbon dioxide tailpipe emissions, the i-MiEV makes a valuable contribution to climate protection which also made it to be the recipient of the “Environment Special Grand Prize” at the 25th International Automobile festival in Paris. i-MiEV is now selling in many countries and regions all over the world, including Japan, Europe, Hong Kong, Australia, Estonia and in the United States and Canada.
