TWICE’s Nayeon makes history on Billboard 200

K-pop girl group TWICE’s member Nayeon made history as a solo artist on the Billboard 200 chart. Billboard reported on July 3 the rankings for the latest Billboard 200 chart dated July 9. It said that Nayeon’s first solo album “Im Nayeon” debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 chart “with 57,000 equivalent album units earned.” “Of that sum, album sales comprise 52,000 (making it the top-selling album of the week); SEA units comprise 4,000 (equaling 6.56 million on-demand official streams of the set’s seven tracks) and TEA units comprise less than 1,000,” according to Billboard. SEA means streaming equivalent album while TEA is track equivalent album. The Billboard 200 chart in the US is “based on multi-metric consumption as measured in equivalent album units, compiled by Luminate. Units comprise album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA). Each unit equals one album sale, or 10 individual tracks sold from an album, or 3,750 ad-supported or 1,250 paid/subscription on-demand official audio and video streams generated by songs from an album.” With the seventh-place ranking, Nayeon is now the K-pop solo artist garnering the highest place on Billboard 200. Korean media outlet Newsis reported on July 4 that previously, the highest ranking K-pop solo artist on Billboard 200 was BTS’ Suga, whose “D-2” mixtape charted 11th on the chart. According to Billboard, previously, TWICE’s “Taste of Love” peaked at No. 6, and “Formula of Love: O+T= “Like many K-pop releases, the CD configuration of IM NAYEON was issued in collectible deluxe packages (17 total, including exclusive editions for Target and Barnes & Noble), each with a standard set of items and randomized elements (such as photocards, postcards and a poster). 98% of the album’s first-week sales were on CD. The other 2% were digital album sales. (The set was not released in any other format, such as vinyl or cassette),” Billboard reported.

No intention to create specific anti-spiking strategy, government says

The government has “no intention” of putting forward a specific national strategy to tackle spiking, it has revealed. Ministers have turned down the recommendation by MPs who carried out an inquiry into the crime. The Home Affairs parliamentary committee had urged the government to look at the efficacy of different anti-spiking initiatives and come up with a national strategy that “promotes best practice”. The government rejected the idea as it published its response into the inquiry on Monday. It said a report on spiking, including reviews into anti-spiking initiatives and case studies of best practice, is due next spring and will ensure the government is “taking the best possible action” to tackle the crime. “There is currently no intention to publish a specific spiking strategy,” the government’s response said. It added: “But it is the government’s intention that the statutory report will highlight this best practice and provide avenues for organisations to communicate and share tips and strategies.” The Home Affairs committee launched an inquiry into drink and injection spiking last year following a wave of reports involving needles and nightclub boycotts calling for tougher action to stamp out the crime. It found a “victim-blaming culture” could be leading to missed opportunities to collect vital evidence and offenders were facing “few deterrents”, with low prosecution rates and victims coming across barriers to reporting. In March The Independent revealed fewer than 2 per cent of cases reported to police resulted in a charge in nearly five years. The select committee put forward its series of recommendations to help tackle spiking in April, including a national communications campaign setting out punishments and encouraging victims to report cases. The government’s response said it was already working on this communications campaign and was looking at sharing messages around the start of the university year, when there was a surge in reports of needle spiking in 2021. It said it was also looking at boosting communications over how suspected spiking victims or those around them should act, which could include outreach across the education and private sector. But the government rejected a recommendation for the compulsory safeguarding training of festival staff. Instead, it would update guidance to say adequate training should be considered in licensing decisions. Dawn Dines from campaign group Stamp Out Spiking said: “We are delighted to hear that government are taking training of staff seriously and we are proactively working towards helping licensing authorities get festivals, bars and clubs trained up.” She also welcomed the government taking action to review reporting data. “More crime reporting data is vital to help identify where these crimes are taking place and who is being targeted,” she said. The government said it was considering options for research on the motivations of perpetrators, which was a committee recommendation. “The government agrees with the committee’s assessment that the motivations of spiking offenders remain unclear, particularly around the newly identified incidences of needle spiking, and that the lack of understanding limits our ability to effectively tackle spiking through targeted interventions,” a spokesperson said. The Home Affairs committee said the government had welcomed most of its recommendations on spiking.

New campaign celebrates the people who make our lives brighter

“Who is your ideal partner?” This is a question that many of us have pondered during this pandemic, as we found solace in the company of friends and family amid various challenges. Whether it’s opening a dream business amid the uncertainties, discovering a new hobby, or engaging in charitable endeavors, life is always brighter when we have a partner who will be there for us through ups and downs. This was the inspiration behind Sun Life Philippines’ latest campaign that highlights its brand promise of Partner for Life. The message is depicted in a fun and vibrant music video featuring Sun Life brand ambassador Piolo Pascual, set against singer-songwriter Johnoy Danao’s song “Bright Like the Sun” in the background. Danao’s composition perfectly captures the special bonds in our lives, while exuding hope and optimism for the future having experienced the pandemic. In the same way, Sun Life is ready to be the Filipinos’ partner for life when it comes to their financial goals even during uncertain times. The No. 1 and longest-standing life insurance company in the Philippines, Sun Life has a wide range of solutions that can help Filipinos get closer to his financial goals no matter what life stage they may be in. Additionally, over 20,000 Sun Life advisors nationwide can provide quality service and advice for those in need of a partner in their financial journey. Those ready to find a bright partner may connect with a Sun Life advisor through http://www.sunlife.co/TalkToAnAdvisor. To further inspire Filipinos, the campaign will also feature a host of activities, including a Tiktok promo where they only need to stitch Piolo’s video with a candid moment featuring the people they consider their partners to the tune of Johnoy’s “Bright Like the Sun.” Participants will get a chance to win a special trip to bond with loved ones. Tiktok users can also create a duet video with Piolo as he sings lines from “Bright Like the Sun” and the Top 10 entries will be awarded ₱1,000 worth of Giftaway vouchers. The promo mechanics, along with other campaign updates and activities, will be announced soon on Sun Life’s Facebook, Instagram, and Tiktok accounts. Those interested are encouraged to follow @sunlifeph on these social platforms.
