Last July 2015, my cousin told me to watch this music video on YouTube. It was a music video by a Korean-Chinese pop boy band called EXO, titled Love Me Right. At first, I could only shoot my cousin various disturbed glances her way. Was she so tired of hearing Sledgehammer by Fifth Harmony on…


The art of overcoming

I despise hospitals; its ghostly white interiors, its intimidating doctors, and the pervasive smell of blood. All this began when I was a child, stricken with a high fever while my mom was quietly making an appointment with an available pediatrician.

Amid the different universities in the Philippines, DLSU diversifies itself through developing a culture of its own—what many call the “Lasallian culture.” Having said that, one of the things that La Salle has been known for is its regular class days from Monday to Thursday.

It is, once again, the season of college applications and entrance exams. Thousands of students have prepared and submitted their requirements to colleges and universities.

Harsh words and weak excuses
by Eternity Ines
Opinion // October 17, 2017

I judge people based on their looks. I stereotype them, put them in boxes, put words in their mouths before I even get a chance to speak to them. I do this on a daily basis—from my daily commute up until my long walk from South Gate to my classrooms in Miguel. I hate that…

by Blaise Cruz
Opinion //

I remember hearing the crowd around me gasp in disbelief as my professor, Human-Computer Interfaces researcher Jordan Aiko Deja, asked everyone to “give computers a chance to be creative.” There was no surprise there. After all, the room was filled with multimedia artists, psychologists, and user experience designers—people who rely on the humanities and on…

The senate committee on public information and mass media held a senate hearing regarding the alarming spread of fake news last October 4.
