Differences between Firecrackers & Pyrothechnics Fireworks…


News Update…
​Philippine Fireworks Association clarifies there is no fireworks ban, urges ban on Piccolo firecrackers & illegal smuggled fireworks

 All pyrotechnics are allowed to be used everywhere & ONLY firecrackers are limited to be used in designated areas.

 1. The Philippine Fireworks Association on Nov. 21 spoke at Pandesal Forum at Kamuning Bakery Café in Quezon City, appealing to leaders of local government units (LGUs) and the media to help clarify that there is no firecrackers ban in the Philippines, that President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s Executive Order 28 allows pyrotechnics (or “pa-ilaw” in Filipino, meaning “lights”) to be used. It is not true that pyrotechnics are prohibited, restricted or limited.


PLS. BAN PICCOLO & SMUGGLED FIREWORKS—The association urges strict ban on dangerous piccolo firecrackers (which had in the past caused 60% or more injuries every New Year) and asks topping of illegal smuggled fireworks which usually have unregulated and dubious quality.

2. Please help clarify that Executive Order 28 only limits the use of firecrackers (or “paputok” in Filipino) to designated areas nationwide, but this doesn’t include the safer pyrotechnics.

3. Our association wishes to appeal to Quezon City and other local government units not to totally ban all pyrotechnics during this holiday season, especially for welcoming the new year .

4. We wish to appeal to local government officials to please not restrict or discourage these age-old tradition of using pyrotechnics for celebrations, because this is a safer legal alternative to firecrackers

5. Our association appeals to mass media and social media to please help spread the whole truth and to help us clarify misinformation adversely and unfairly affecting our whole industry.

6. The association wishes to thank President Duterte for his fairness towards our local Philippine-made pyrotechnics and fireworks industry, which is mainly but not only limited to Bulacan province, that’s why Executive Order No. 28 is clear about allowing pyrotechnics and encourages people to shift from firecrackers to pyrotechnics.                  
Clarification “fireworks” is both firecrackers and pyrotechnics; firecrackers’ main effect is sound and pyrotechnics’ main effects are lights.

7. The Philippine fireworks industry benefits an estimated 150,000 people with livelihoods connected to local manufacturing and selling fireworks nationwide.

8. The association appeals for support for this local industry, which has potentials for exports, but the domestic industry needs to survive and be given fairness. Examples of good local manufacturers is Asean’s biggest fireworks manufacturer the Dragon Fireworks of Bulacan province. This company is ISO-certified, it has represented the Philippines and won gold medals and other honors for the country in international competitions like those in Cannes, France; in the 2013 Berlin “Pyronale”; in Hanover, Germany; etc.

9. The association warns that any moves by local or even national politicians for a total ban of fireworks will just worsen public safety, because it will encourage unregulated small-scale and secret backyard producers and it shall encourage unregulated smuggling of imported fireworks with dubious or inconsistent quality. It will also encourage people to go back to using dangerous firecrackers instead of the safer pyrotechnics.

10. The Philippine Fireworks Association appeals to politicians in LGUs and the media for fairness, for support for this domestic fireworks manufacturing industry which provides many livelihoods, generates taxes, supports the Philippine economy and has huge export potentials.

BASSph App…


QBASS PH app officially launched 

A revolutionary application that will help users measure the speed of internet connection of smartphones was launched today.

 BASS PH or Project Bass, which means “Bandwidth and Signal Statistics,” is an accurate and credible independent internet measurement provider. Its mobile app will provide Internet users the ability to measure internet bandwidth and other statistics. The launch of BASS PH is deemed vital amid the clamor to further improve the status of internet connection in the country.

 At this time where the Philippines lags behind other countries even in Southeast Asia in terms of quality of internet speed, the app offers far-reaching benefits for a variety of users. For subscribers and customers, they can use a virtual map to help them see which telecommunications provider has the fastest internet connection where they live or work.

 Telecommunications companies benefit from the collected data since they can now make data driven decisions as to expansion areas to target. They can also reallocate resources such as bandwidth and frequency to areas that need it most.

 For phone manufacturers, they can also access information as regards the performance of their phone units during actual usage and compare these with competitors. This can result to the manufacture of more efficient and better-performing phones in the future.

 As for companies with businesses in the digital world, the BASS PH map can help them identify specific target areas with high internet activity and concentrate their digital product offerings there. Finally, BASS PH can help the government guard and protect the public against any possible fraud using BASS PH’s free, supplemental, third-party data.

 More importantly, BASS PH is absolutely free to download, and the generated data will likewise be free to the public and other interested users. This makes the data even more valuable since it was generated by an app developed by an independent, third-party organization. Heavy users of data like the telco companies will benefit tremendously from this since they do not have to pay for the data, unlike those that come from companies like Akamai, Open Signal and Ookla, where access to data and other internet measurements and statistics are paid via subscription.

 And no worries because BASS PH is easy to use. Just go to Google Play or App Store and download. You can begin the test by opening the app and press “Begin Test” to measure your connection speed. Then by viewing the map, users will be able to see the test results of BASS users in a particular area. BASS PH is available for both Android and iOS users and is easy to store in any smartphone. All it needs is around 30MB of storage landscape and will consume minimal time and data for every test.

“With BASS PH, we help empower smartphone users in the Philippines by giving them the tool to measure and log internet speeds. We hope this, in turn, will ensure that network providers in the country will efficiently and consistently deliver their advertised internet speeds and thus will pave the way to better internet service nationwide,” explains Wilson Chua of Bass PH.

Bass PH also called for a stronger cooperation and collaboration between the government and the telco companies, where they can join hands to achieve the ultimate goal: improve the state of internet in the Philippines. He/she also advised the public to share or contribute their measurements in order to help improve speed and overall internet experience in the Philippines. He/She also expressed the willingness of BASS PH to help support other government-initiated efforts and investments that will help achieve the goal of providing Filipinos with better internet.
