Being a star of a television show is without a doubt tiring and schedules can get crazy at times. However, this does not stop ‘Sahaya’ star Bianca Umali from pursuing a college education.

The Umali just graduated from senior high-school and got her diploma from Veritas Catholic School in Paranáque City in March.

“Magpapatuloy ako ng college and I will pursue a degree.”

It seemed that the young star is determined to finish college despite her busy schedule.

She is still not certain of what school she will be enrolling in but there is no question that she will pursue a degree. To her, education is still important even though she gets paid handsomely for acting.

“Wala pang sure na school at wala pa rin certain course, pero tuloy-tuloy ‘yun.”

Bianca pointed that everything they do on the set is hard but is worth it because of the support they get from the fans.

“Lahat ng bagay sa Sahaya, kung paano gawin walang madali talaga. But then again, dahil sa suporta at sa pagmamahal ng mga tao sa amin nagiging worth it at nagpe-pay off ‘yung mga ginagawa namin.”

The cast also agreed and said that things are more difficult on the set because of the heat. Not only that, the capturing of scenes is hard because the entire theme is set on water. The cameras are positioned on the boat or the in the water.

“I’ve never done this before kasi ‘yung set namin nasa tubig. The angles are not as easy to capture because hindi naman kwadrado lahat at hindi siya isang kwarto. And the cameras have to be mounted on the water or on a boat,” shared Mylene Dizon, one of the cast members.

“Lahat ng ipinapakita ko, lahat ng efforts ko, lahat galing sa puso. Which is, ngayon ko lang na masasabi kong ginawa para sa isang role,”  Umali added.

‘Sahaya’ has positive receptions from critics and fans alike. Watch ‘Sahaya’ every 8:20 pm on the GMA Network.

One invested viewer of the primetime series Sahaya took to Facebook and shared his private message to the Department of Education (DepEd)’s page, complaining about the controversy surrounding the valedictorian award between fictional characters Sahaya and Farida.

Netizen Kevin Beethoven posted screenshots of his messages to DepEd where he explained how the principal and Farida were in cahoots with each other and how Sahaya deserved to receive the valedictorian award.

Aired on April 3, the 12th episode of the series titled Sahaya: Apela ng tunay na Valedictorian showed that both Sahaya and Farida got perfect scores on a quiz bee. Mayor Dante made a tiebreaker question to determine the victor. Sahaya’s answer was chosen by the mayor, which caused her to be picked as the school’s valedictorian.

Dark secret behind social media sites: Jasmine Curtis–Smith laments over working conditions of Filipino content moderators

Dark secret behind social media sites: Jasmine Curtis–Smith laments over working conditions of Filipino content moderators

[mashshare]
  • Behind a safe social media site, there are people who are working to view and delete traumatic videos and images for the sake of everyone
  • In her post, she expressed her sadness knowing that there are Filipinos being outsourced with this kind of job
  • Content moderators receive limited training and inadequate psychological support, which result in having post-traumatic stress disorder or, much worse, is commit suicide

How much do you know about social media?

Most of the people love to use social media, especially Facebook, to post pictures and video which can be seen by anyone. But some people are posting offensive and vulgar pictures and videos, which is against the guidelines of the social media sites.

Without having the knowledge, behind safe social media sites there are people who are working to view and delete traumatic videos and images for the sake of everyone.

Jasmine Curtis-Smith, who plays the mother of Sahaya in the new teleserye “SAHAYA” of GMA network, retweeted a post of BBC Three featuring content moderators of social media sites like Facebook. On her post, she expresses her sadness knowing that there are Filipinos being outsourced with this kind of job.

Knowing that these workers are having an extremely traumatic and highly sensitive job, they are being poorly paid and have lack of psychological support.

On a documentary video of BBCThree, they have unleashed the dirtiest secret of being a content moderator. Content moderators are responsible for moderating the social media feed which is to be seen or not. Social media sites like Facebook itself have been outsourcing thousands of Filipinos to delete content that violates their guidelines. Each worker has a target of 25,000 images to review content that can include terrorist propaganda, child sexual abuse, pornography and graphic violence for 8 to 10-hour shifts and some of their workers were only 18 years old.

“You are not allowed to commit one mistake, you could ruin more than one life, it could trigger a war, it could trigger bullying, it could trigger killing.”

One said that when they started the training, they didn’t have any idea what a content moderator was. The employer just simply explained what they would see and what tools to use. But in reality, it was very traumatic for persons to witness such kind of pictures and photos being uploaded. Since they have already signed a contract, quitting the job is prohibited.

“The most shocking that I saw was a girl, around six years of age, sucking a dick.”

Content moderators receive limited training and inadequate psychological support, which result in having post-traumatic stress disorder or, much worse, is to commit suicide.

They consider themselves like  policemen who remove violent content to make it safe for the user.

“The world that we are living in today right now I believed, is not really healthy, we are just like policemen. I’ve seen hundreds of beheading that’s not even pictures, even the videos –a two-minute act of beheading it’s really challenging. Skip images can be marked as a mistake, pressurizing every decision they make.

One of their tasks is to decide when to stop live video streams and some of those horrifying videos remain in their memory.

“It seems like it was a joke, we didn’t know it was real, he was attempting to kill himself, as long as he hasn’t committed suicide we’re not allowed to stop his live stream, because if we stop it, the one who gets in trouble kills himself.”

And having this type of job,one must not let these video affect you; but some can’t avoid being affected by what they see.

These people are not well compensated but they have no other choice because it is their only means to survive.
