Telling the Truth: A Rotarian's Bitter-Sweet Dilemma

Marvin Macatol
17 January 2012

The New Year 2012 is here and I wish it finds you well. I also wished the Christmas Season that closed the previous year was spent well and joyously with family and loved ones.

As you may already know, in another part of the country, I couldn't say those lines. In my home city of Cagayan de Oro, a flood caught everyone sleeping and swept them away in the unholy dark and early hours of December 17, 2011. These were all in the papers.

My family and relatives were fortunate to have been spared. But an indescribable pain still burned my heart. It found expression in a series of slides entitled, "Remembering Sendong (Washi): Did You Really Understand What Happened?"

These slides illustrated how Sendong, the twisted decision of the Cagayan de Oro City government to allow people to live in hazardous areas of the city, and the denudation of the forests became a lethal mix that created the catastrophe that killed more than 1,000 people -- formal and informal settlers alike.

Christmas Message: There is something good in this world and it's worth fighting for

December 10, 2011
Christmas Party with the Anns

This is it! It's Christmas time indeed.

As we all know, "Christ" in Christmas refers to Jesus Christ. We celebrate his birth on December 25 of every year. The Philippines is one of the two countries in Asia who celebrate Christmas not just as a national holiday but as a full season.

But what does Christmas mean to us today outside of gifts we give, the bonuses we pay out or receive, the carolers on the streets and the Christmas lights that we see all around the city?

Archivists reclaim 2 silent PH films ‘pirated’ by US; film fest opens Friday

Bayani San Diego Jr of the the Philippine Daily Inquirer writes: For years, members of the Society of Filipino Archivists for Film (Sofia) have been investigating whether an American B-movie titled “Brides of Sulu,” released in 1934, was actually two Filipino silent films “reedited and assembled together.”

Sofia member Teddy Co likened it to solving a jigsaw puzzle where “almost all of the pieces are already there.”

After painstaking research that bordered on detective work, Co and colleague Dr. Marti Magsanoc believe they have established a connection between “Brides” and Filipino prewar films “Moro Pirates” and “Princess Tarhata,” both produced in 1931.
