With the academe, government, private sector and community all involved, almost 52,000 public high school students and 1,781 of their teachers will be able to use 21st century learning tools as they study Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
The days of learning calculus and physics with Manila paper and chalk are over for these students. On September 25, 2018 during an awarding ceremony held in the iconic Plaza Aurora in Laoag City, Caltex Fuel Your School (FYS) turned over P3 million worth of 21st century learning tools to the 30 highest-need public high schools in the Ilocos and Cordillera regions.
With more Filipinos relying on the internet for many of their daily activities and with information easily spread from one platform to another, practicing caution in the consumption and sharing of data becomes even more crucial.
The majority of Filipino internet users believe that “fake news” is a serious problem on the internet, based on a survey released by local research institution Social Weather Station (SWS) in June 2018.
As the generation with the biggest online presence, millennials play a significant role in making sure that the truth prevails amid the rampant spread of false information.
But how exactly can one tell fake news from factual ones? Here are some tips on how millennials can help discern between fake news and real news, and promote truth in this age of disinformation:
Caltex, marketed by Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), today announced the renewal of a long-term partnership with HSBC to continue to provide better credit card service for Filipinos motorists.

Fuel spend also earns cash back (for HSBC Gold Visa Credit Cards only) or bonus points which motorists can use to redeem rewards items or miles.
