In an interview with Pep.ph during a taping of her show, Jennylyn shared that she really loves to cook and bake, in which she applies what she learns from the show. “Si Jazz kasi, mahilig ‘yan sa matatamis. Adobong matamis, asado, yung ganun. E, nakakapagluto rin dito like pata tim, tocino, asado,” she shares. This is Everyday Sarap CDO’s fourth year, so would Jennylyn come up with a cook book or a book about baking in the future? ”Hindi, e, pero, magandang idea ‘yan ha,” she quipped. “Pero okay ‘yan. Yung baking, love na love ko yun kasi, parang therapy sa akin ang nagme-measure, nagmi-mix,” she said. (pep.ph)

Californis okays textbook changes to include Filipinos' role in World War II "The green light from the California State Board of Education (SBE) came two months after the Instructional Quality Commission (IQC) unanimously approved the recommendations of the Bataan Legacy Historical Society (BLHS),” according to a report from Inquirer.net. The BLHS worked hard for years with the help and support from the Filipino community to include the role of the Filipinos during WWII in the history/social sciences curriculum for Grades 7-12. The curriculum will include the Philippine Commonwealth; the creation of the United States Army Forces in the Far East (USAFFE) comprised of Americans and a majority of Filipinos; the Bataan Death March and its thousands of casualties; the role of the Filipino and American guerrillas during the liberation of the country; the Battles of Leyte Gulf and the destruction of Manila, to name a few.

The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) is recalling more than 500,000 hoverboards by 10 companies. Razor, popular for its scooters, is recalling 28,000 of their hoverboards called Hovertrax due to their lithium-ion battery packs. The concern was that the battery packs could easily overheat, posing a fire hazard. In January this year, the first universal safety guidelines and requirements for hoverboards were released. The CPSC then told manufacturers that it would consider hoverboards that didn't meet the new voluntary safety standards to be defective and could potentially seek to recall them. (cnn.com)
