ALTHOUGH no Cebu-based graduates made it to the top 10 of the November 2020 Physician Licensure Examinations (PLE), the Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC) named a Cebu-based medicine school as the top 1 among the top performing schools this year.

The Cebu Institute of Medicine (CIM) ranked first among the top ten performing schools in the November 2020 PLE after all of its 138 first time-takers have passed the examinations, giving the school a 100 percent passing rate.

The CIM was followed by the University of the Philippines (UP)-Manila with 98.63 percent passing rate and Ateneo School of Medicine and Public Health with 98.60 percent.

The PRC released the results of the November 2020 PLE on Thursday, November 26, 2020 or seven working days after the last day of the examination.

The PRC said a total of 3,538 out of the 4,704 takers passed this year’s PLE administered by the Board of Medicine in the Cities of Manila, Baguio, Cagayan de Oro, Cebu, Davao, Iloilo, Legazpi, Lucena, Tacloban, Tuguegarao and Zamboanga.

A UP-Manila graduate, Jomel Lapides, emerged as the top 1 with a rate of 88.67 percent, followed by Patrick Joseph Mabugat from University of Saint La Salle and Adrian Teves from University of Sto. Tomas (UST) who both garnered 88.58 percent while both Henrick Fong of UST and Raphael Rodolfo of UP-Manila ranked third with a rate of 88.33 percent. (WBS)

Shilpa Shetty Kundra’s latest fitness video is all about performing Vrikshasana in the lap of Manali hills – fitness

Feeding our screen sore eyes with the greenery and tranquility of the mountains, Hungama 2 star Shilpa Shetty Kundra shared a throwback video from Manali and instantly pumped up drooping workout mood. Featuring her working out in the tranquil and serene environment of the picturesque Manali, Shilpa’s latest fitness video brushed aside netizens’ Monday blues.

Taking to her Instagram handle, Shilpa shared the video that gives a glimpse of her peaceful exercise routine while she was in Manali for the shooting schedule of Hungama 2. Standing bare feet on the sunkissed grass in the lap of nature, Shilpa was seen donning a white spaghetti top teamed with a pair of black Yoga pants.

Pulling back her hair in a no-nonsense high ponytail so that her tresses do not meddle with her intense workout, Shilpa performed the Yoga pose Vrikshasana. Stretching out her hands above her head and pointing them directly upwards, Shilpa clasped them together in anjali mudra.

Gazing in the distance, she shifted the weight to her left leg while the right knee was bent in half lotus position. She elaborated in the caption, “#MondayMotivation A tranquil and serene environment like the picturesque Manali is perfect for aligning the mind, body, and soul. Being able to become one with nature and practice the Vrikshasana gives me a sense of achievement, especially because getting the right balance isn’t always easy (sic).”

The actor added, “When there’s a lot of noise within, even the quietest of places can feel chaotic. So, it’s extremely important to calm your mind, align your thoughts, and compose yourself before you practise this asana (sic).”

Sharing some benefits of the Yoga asana, Shilpa wrote, “The shift of the entire body’s weight to each leg strengthens the ligaments and tendon of the feet. It also helps strengthen the thighs, calves, & ankles; and helps improve focus. Start your day on a positive note with yoga (sic).”
