On the morning of Thursday, April 8, I called a meeting of our top editorial minds to discuss a potentially explosive document given to us by a source from the Nacionalista Party. It was a report allegedly done by Ateneo’s Psychology Department on Sen. Benigno Aquino III signed by Fr. Carmelo Caluag.
Boto Mo, iPatrol Mo: Ako ang Simula! (BMPM) has never stopped inspiring me. Eight months after we launched BMPM in Northern Mindanao, the thrill and excitement for the movement remain, with each activity bringing more inspiration.
In her newly published booked entitled Discourses on Cordillera Autonomy, University of the Philippines political science professor Athena Lydia Casambre provided an engaging analytical angle as to why the regional autonomy project never saw the light.
Itong nagdaang semana santa ay marahil nakapagbigay sa atin hindi lamang ng sapat na pahinga sa nakakapagod na trabaho at mga problema dala ng pagharap sa mga pang araw-araw na pangangailangan ng pamilya kundi pati na rin ng pagkakataon na mapagmuni-munihan ang mga nakaraan at mapaghandaan ang bukas. Higit sa lahat sana ang nagdaang semana santa ay nakapagdulot sa atin ng sapat na panahon upang tingnan ang ating mga sarili at ang antas ng ating pananampalataya at pagtitiwala sa Panginoon.

WASHINGTON DC, United States – I was talking to an American lawyer last year about the tradition and intricacies surrounding the Philippine Bar Exam and he was flabbergasted. He thought it was unbelievable that the Philippines would publicly list the Top 10 Bar passers with their grades. He was also puzzled that the exam days were on the four Sundays of September instead of two or three consecutive days.

WASHINGTON DC, United States – There’s a festive atmosphere immediately after the Bar Exam results are announced. Anyone thick-skinned enough can unashamedly ask for a free dinner from those who topped the Bar Exam. Congratulatory greetings are offered to those who made it. Messages of encouragement are given to those who didn’t.

WASHINGTON DC, United States – The 2009 Philippine Bar Exam results are out. 1,451 passed out of 5,903 who took the Bar Exam. Of the Top 10 Bar passers, 7 are from Ateneo, 2 from the University of the Philippines, and 2 from San Beda, with a 10th place tie. The 2 from San Beda placed # 1 and 2. Congratulations to those who topped the Bar and to those who passed. For those who didn’t, take time to reflect and compose yourself. Then try again.
