Why Design Remains Relevant Today

How we live, how we eat, how we work, how things function - all these are influenced by Design in ways both subtle and obvious. And Design has undoubtedly helped us survived a pandemic. Design thinking, in fact, helps us solve challenges in life, and it can be applied to the expression of Filipino culture, heritage and identity.

FALLOUT FROM AFGHANISTAN 
What the Return of the Taliban Means

Afghanistan fell to Taliban forces with unexpected, confounding speed. Some Afghanis are able to flee the country as part of evacuation efforts by the American military and its allies. But what of the ones who remain, especially the women? The return of the Taliban after 20 years has chilling implications for the future and independence of women and children in Afghanistan, particularly with regard to their education.

 

We examine the fallout from Afghanistan from several perspectives. Listen to award-winning journalist Veronica Pedrosa, Kabul-based former United Nations Environment Programme management expert, Ernie Wijangco, political analyst Victor Manhit, and activist, educator and human rights defender, Pashtana Durrani.

PERSPECTIVES ON THE PRESIDENCY

Leadership Lessons for No. 17

The qualifications for an individual aspiring to become the President of

the Philippines are outlined in Article VII, Section 2 of the 1987 Constitution. According to the constitution, an individual may become President provided he or she meets the following criteria: (1) a natural born Filipino; (2) a registered voter; (3) must be able to read and write; (4) is 40 years of age at the day of the election; and (5) must have resided in the Philippines ten years before the election is held.

 

As history has taught us, the criteria above represent the barest minimum; to be President of the Philippines requires far more in terms integrity of character, sincerity of intentions and willingness to serve.

What should we expect of the next occupant of Malacañang? Political

scientists and historians discuss presidential character and leadership

in the pre-Duterte era, to acquaint the audience with the best practices

of our past presidents such as Manuel L. Quezon, Ramon Magsaysay,

Corazon Aquino, and Fidel V. Ramos.

What are you reading?

(And how did it become a book?)

A behind the scenes look at the publishing industry with the people who publish, pick and promote the books you read.

 

As the cliché goes, don’t judge a book by its cover.  Indeed, how the words between the covers went from a draft by the author to the book currently in the reader’s hands is a journey that can be simultaneously laborious, frustrating, exciting and rewarding, but it’s almost always interesting.

 

To quote another cliché, there’s always a story behind the story.
