Under the new management’s supervision, there is a plan to add a course on real estate management. All of these courses would not be possible without the credible and reliable faculty and deans who are industry experts and who graduated from top universities here and abroad for the school to offer world-class education. 

MLQU is also aiming to establish its presence in Balanga, Bataan. To strengthening its Professional School, the School for Professional Advancement & Continuing Education (SPACE), which would further upgrade the level of education that they provide.

If you love listening to stream music online, I am sure that you know Grooveshark or happen to browse it and heard about it.  

Well, if not. Grooveshark is an online based music streaming service owned and operated in the U.S. by Escape Media Group.  It has a music streaming features, music recommendation system, and a search engine for music and artist. The user can upload their personal audio file which can be streamed and organized via a playlist.

Recently, Grooveshark had to shut down after operating nearly a decade because of some legalities. It was said that they failed to secure licenses from rights holders for the huge amount of music on the services and they admitted that they wrong and they are apologizing about it. 

I was a fan of their website and I love the services they have, unfortunately, last April 30, 2015, an open letter for the music fans was posted on their website. Check out the details in the screenshot below.


It was so sad to know that they are stopping their operation, but that is not the end of the story because every door closes there is something new that will open. 

Finally, after few days, I read an article today about Grooveshark being back


And it's true they are back and had a new website,  from http://grooveshark.com/ it is now http://grooveshark.io/. I visited the new website, it looks like the old one. Similarly the same in design (they only changed some details like the search box) and they are now being careful about their Terms of use, Privacy Policy, and even adds Disclaimer and DMCA/Copyright Policy & Notices on their contact us page. 

On the post, a named Shark who happens to be connected to Grooveshark said that and I quote;  

“Well, I started backing up all the content on the website when I started suspecting that Grooveshark’s demise is close and my suspicion was confirmed a few days later when they closed. By the time, they closed I have already backed up 90% of the content on the site and I’m now working on getting the remaining 10%.” 

- Shark, Grooveshark 

He even said that it was still in the initial stages of development. However, their team hopes tp reproduce the old Grooveshark UI as a whole that includes playlist and favorites.

And now... it seems like that they are really back!

Are you familiar with the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IPOPHL)? 

Well, most Filipinos don’t know about it and did not care to register their inventions or property created that they own. Today, the Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines is having a new vision of an Intellectual Property-conscious Philippines in a demystified, development-oriented and democratized intellectual property (IP) system by 2020.

Aside from the registration of IP assets, the Office seeks to develop the three facets of the IP system: economic, technological, and socio-cultural to encourage innovation, and respect for IP.





Participating local bloggers were welcomed by IPOPHL Officer-in-Charge Atty. Allan Gepty and were given an overview of the basic orientation on patents, trademarks, and copyright. The said lectures were conducted by Mr. Leo Losantas, Engr. Amellita Amon, Mr. Marlo Carag, and Atty. Louie Calvario, respectively.

The First Bloggers’ Conference on IP was organized by IPOPHL to reach out to netizens.  IPOPHL hopes to collaborate with the bloggers in increasing IP awareness of the general public.

As the Internet of Things (IoT) phenomenon becomes more and more mainstream, Microsoft Philippines along Globe Labs with JumpSparc  will be teaching students, professionals, hardware and software enthusiasts, and entrepreneurs how to make the IoT transition quicker and easier.
