Women make their move

By

We don’t know who planned it, or even if it was planned at all. But we are seeing a timely, significant, and maybe even groundbreaking confluence of events this year and next year, which has at its heart the agreements and outcomes of an unprecedented series of international conferences in the 1990s and 2000s.

Blame and doubt in rape

Time-bending and hustling

By

If there’s one thing the movie “Winter’s Tale” accomplished, it may be this: driving moviegoers back to print. More specifically, I wouldn’t be surprised if bookstores see a sudden surge in sales for “Winter’s Tale” the book, written by Mark Helprin in 1983.

Youths behaving ‘badly’

By

The context is different. One case involved a petition at the US Supreme Court by two employers who wished to be exempted from a provision in the Healthcare Act (aka “Obamacare”) because providing contraception to their employees offended their religious beliefs. The other concerns the Philippine Supreme Court which is due to release—soon, it is hoped—its ruling determining whether the Responsible Parenthood and Reproductive Health Law is constitutional or, as some petitioners contend, violates the Constitution for, among other things, offending the religious sensibilities of some.

The samurai code

By

Too bad the movie “47 Ronin” bombed in the United States after its Christmas Day release was met with indifference from American audiences. I daresay it should gain a larger and more eager following internationally, especially in Asia, particularly in Japan where the remains of the real 47 ronin are buried. In fact, Sengakuji Temple, where the gravestones of the warriors can be found, has become a popular pilgrimage destination and holds a festival commemorating their deaths.
