Fr. De la Rosa quits Ched

DOMINICAN Prior Provincial Fr. Edmund Nantes, O.P. believes former UST Rector and resigned Commission on Higher Education chair Fr. Rolando de la Rosa, O.P. can contribute more to tertiary education as an educator and a researcher than rendering government service where he lacks support.

“I said I want him back because he is dealing with a lot of difficulties working with the government,” Fr. Nantes told the Varsitarian.

Ang mga rebulto sa Main Bldg.

Sa Roma nakahimpil ang kataas-taasang pinuno ng Simbahang Katolika. Sa St. Peter’s Basilica at Square naman nakatayo ang mga rebulto ng mga santo at mga makasaysayang taong tumulong sa pagpapalaganap ng relihiyong Katoliko. Sa Pangunahing Gusali naman ng Unibersidad, nakatayo ang mga rebulto ng mga prominenteng tao ng ating mundo.

Kilala mo ba ang mga taong nakahimpil sa itaas ng Pangunahing Gusali?

Turismo sa kuko ng Maynila

matatagpuan sa makasaysayang lungsod ng Maynila, may maipagmamalaking kasaysayan din ang munting ‘lungsod’ ng Intramuros. Sa loob ng mahabang panahon bago pa sumapit ang ika-19 siglo, ang Intramuros ang nagsilbing pintuan ng iba’t ibang kalakalang lokal at pandaigdigan.

“It is a reminder (Intramuros) of our identity. A mixture of what we are as Filipinos and what we were as colonial Filipinos,” ayon kay Jose Victor Torres, Senior Historic Sites Development Officer ng Intramuros Administration.

Innocence amid cynicism

IMAGINE seeing the world through the eyes of a child.

In the 2003 Italian film Io Non Ho Paura (I am not Scared), viewers will not only see, but also think and feel like a child does. A part of the monthly screening of the 2005 Italian Film Festival at the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP), the film is based on the novel of the same title by Niccolo Ammaniti.

National Artists venerated

“THEY are individuals who, despite economic struggles, have dedicated themselves to their crafts.”

This is how historian Ambeth Ocampo of the National Historic Institute (NHI) described National Artists during the opening of the exhibit Meet Our National Artists at the Rustan’s Tower in Pasig City last May 12. Notable personalities such as Department of Tourism Secretary Joseph Durano and organizer/socialite Bambi Harper graced the event. Only one National Artist, however, showed up: prominent painter Arturo Luz.

The key to history

FOR THEIR second exhibit of the year, the Gintong SuSi Art Organization brings their audience to the historic city of Pasig. This time, however, only a few members expressed passion for a less personal theme.

The theme Pasig: Daluyan ng Kulay, the exhibit depicts feelings, sentiments, and impressions on the historical river that this generation seems to have forgotten. Employing various media and styles, the young artists paid homage not only to the river that was once the lifeblood of Manila, but also to one of the region’s more progressive cities today.

Summer treats for the sweet tooth

WHAT’S in a kiss? It may be hard to imagine, but a kiss can mean cakes, pastries, and everything French.

Bizu Patisserie and Bistro got its name from the French word bisous, which means kiss. Owner and general manager Annabelle Tanco wanted pastries to remind diners of the sensual experience one gets from a kiss. She wanted the patisserie to have that feminine feel, a theme that echoes passion and life.

Naked Forces unleashed

BREAKING away from the usual definition of fine art, Frank Hoefsmit and Jorell Legaspi opened Forza Interna, a fine art nude photograph exhibit at the Galerie Astra in Makati last May 6. Combinations of digital photography and image editing plus lighting effects compose this eccentric display.
