The house that Smit built
by Imman Canicosa
Opinion // November 5, 2010

Well it’s not even a house to begin with. It certainly doesn’t have a roof, which is why patches of grass have been indifferently washed away by time like an old man’s receding hairline. It most certainly doesn’t have a name. It’s simply called “the football field.” No walls either; only a several-meters high fence,…

I have been green-minded for half my life. I was in the same institution for 17 years of my life because, much like my family’s receding hairlines, studying in La Salle was a family legacy. Green had been hard-wired into my DNA.  I am a Lasallian three generations deep and damn proud of it. My…

This verbally manifested thought bubble from Despicable Me’s villainous main character, Gru, whenever he had a revelation – or at least whenever he thought he had a great idea – accurately described many moments in my life at The LaSallian. Some schemes turned out to be great; some, epic fail; and some, weirdly enough, both….

This past year, I became particularly conscious of my age. I never really gave it much thought before (then again, I was younger), but when you realize you are the dinosaur at The LaSallian’s acquaintance party, you are bound to give your age some attention. The LaSallian, in all its glorious 50 years, has seen…

Our batch of staff and editors at The LaSallian belonged to an era that we may now describe as an infant in technology. As a staffer of the Menagerie section for two years, I submitted my articles in print-out and diskette. In 1998, when I became University editor, I carried more diskettes from my reporters….

Recently I was accused of being a liberal, to which I replied I didn’t consider it a slur. In the last century, women were given the vote and African-Americans were granted equal rights in the US, a large part of which was due to progressive grassroots movements. Great strides were made because stubborn men and…

Straight from the Quiver: Smells like teen spirit

Opinion // September 15, 2010

Lion dancers kicked-off the party in the quaint nation-state of Singapore. They pranced up and down the stage as part of an elaborate production number as fireworks bled momentarily in the sky above and were eventually gobbled up by the hungry night. The revelry marked the conclusion of the first ever Youth Olympic Games, a…

Imagine Cup is an annual student competition established by Microsoft Corporation. It gathers tech-savvy students from all over the globe to develop software, games, and web applications that will address the contest’s theme: Imagine a world where technology helps solve the toughest problems. Together with three other friends, I participated in the Game Design Competition of…

I’ve been told before that everybody knows that journalism, whether campus or mainstream, is a thankless job so no one really needs to write about it, but I will. If as journalists, we got to do what we got to do, we also have to say what we have to say. Whenever I am asked…
