“Anak, gutom ang aabutin mo dyan sa ginagawa mo!” is a line we always hear from parents of artistically inclined children. A story about the great musician Maestro Ryan Cayabyab goes like this: At the tender age of six, the musically inclined boy witnessed the death of his mother Celerina Venzon Pujante. This was his mother’s dying wish to her four children, “Ipangako n’yo sa akin na walang sino man sa inyo ang papasok sa musika bilang hanap-buhay.” And she said so out of motherly love because she experienced the financial hardship of being an opera singer with low and irregular income.

Cayabyab’s mother is not alone in this belief, “Gutom ang aabutin mo sa pa-art-art!” We have preference for the stable income as … [Read more...] about Money Management for Artists
How to make money online with youtube
YouTube probably generates $16 billion to $25 billion in annual revenue, making the video service big enough to crack the top half of the Fortune 500. But that is just a guess. Even though financial analysts on Wall Street think YouTube makes about as much money as the Gap, General Mills or Netflix, the video service’s financial results are a secret. They are lumped in with the rest of Google, an even larger internet company that last year generated $137 billion in revenue. That secrecy has led to growing frustration among analysts and investors, who will be looking for more details about YouTube when Google’s parent company, Alphabet, reports results for its second financial quarter on Thursday. Three months ago, Alphabet executives pointed to issues with YouTube as a factor in disappointing financial results in the first quarter. “I think their reticence to provide information borders on paranoia, as if they would be admitting failure if they allowed us to discover … [Read more...] about How big is YouTube?

It’s tough being a Huawei faithful these days, and it’s an even tougher time for businesses to even have anything to do with the company. The world’s second-largest smartphone maker has been hit pretty hard from the ongoing US-China trade war — a damaging impairment just as the tech giant managed to surpass Apple in smartphone sales. Ever since the Trump administration blacklisted the firm on grounds of alleged espionage and fraud last month, things have been going south for Huawei, now effectively banned from buying US-made tech including essential software (like Google’s Android OS) and microchips (from Intel and Broadcom) it needs for its products. Despite his initial optimism about Trump’s tech crusade, Huawei founder and CEO Ren Zhengfei expects his company’s revenue to decline by $30 billion, while phone sales overseas fell 40 percent over the past month. Huawei users (especially those who just bought their P30 Pros) freaked … [Read more...] about Making a case for Huawei: Things will be just fine

Instead, imagine if kids were using these technologies to build fulfilling friendships, create awe-inspiring art or even save lives. In Thailand, people spend more than one-third of their day online at an average of nine hours and 11 minutes. The worldwide daily average is six hours and 42 minutes per day (2018 figures). Our growing use of digital technology shows no sign of slowing, with 1 million new users coming online every day, according to We Are Social’s “Global Digital Report 2019”. As more parents raise kids with iPads and iPhones, it’s no surprise that children are among the fastest growing group for internet use. In the latest Unesco research, “Digital Kids Asia-Pacific: Insights into Children’s Digital Citizenship” (DKAP), which was launched this month, over 60 per cent of 15-year-olds surveyed were already spending more than three hours a day online, while about 8 per cent were online for more than seven hours daily. … [Read more...] about Can YouTube kids blossom into young digital citizens?
