Thank you, Zero Waste champion Roy Alvarez

The officers, members and staff of the EcoWaste Coalition express sadness for the untimely departure of Roy Alvarez, our former president (2010-2012), whom we hold in high esteem for his animated commitment to the pursuit of Zero Waste, a vision of a restored ecological order where nothing is wasted dumped or burned. As Zero Waste champion, Roy traveled across the country to propagate the values of “waste not, dump not, burn not” in countless community and school gatherings and to spread respect and love for Mother Earth.

The ‘Other House’

By

When my brothers and I were young, we called this house the “Other House.” As a child, I walked with dad and measured its distance from our own house and concluded that it was merely 100 steps away. It was nice having my grandparents so near us; it was nice going over there to play by the beach.

Father Joe shook hell in ‘job heaven’

By

Fr. Joe Dizon, 65, passed away on Nov. 4 because of complications due to diabetes. He will be missed by his fellow social activists, street parliamentarians, brother priests and, most of all, countless workers whom he helped through the Workers Assistance Center (WAC) that he founded and ran for almost 20 years.

Frank Chavez: ‘a good man, a truly great man’

Moved he must have been by two articles published by the Inquirer in October 2010 (“Are you smarter than a fifth grader?” and “Wood, with a gift for burning”), former Solicitor General Frank Chavez wrote me and offered “to represent you, free-of-charge, should you need legal assistance, because I believe in the justness of your cause and in the generational goodness it brings.”

A mentor to writers

By

Raul S. Gonzalez, whose recent death the Inquirer reported (5/18/13), was truly an outstanding man of letters. He was a writer, editor, educator, public relations man, and mentor to many now-accomplished writers.

Fil and the business of doing good

By

Today’s Business Matters column should have been written by Prof. Felipe “Fil” Alfonso. Unfortunately, Fil passed away last April 5, a week before he was to turn 76. His passing marks a loss to the business community, especially because of his passionate commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR), or what many refer to as the business of doing good.

Braveheart

By

Losing a friend as many and I have in William MacGregor Esposo, or Billy, despite our having accepted a long time ago that death was an active and constant threat to him, is always an emotional trauma. We who had been among Billy’s closest friends in the last two decades are not strangers to the dramas of life, not at our ages. And we have not been strangers to danger, excitement and radical change either – these had brought us together, kept us together, and made our friendships even stronger.

Fr. James Reuter, SJ

By

Much has been said about the life and accomplishments of Fr. James Reuter. It is not easy to improve on or repeat in a better way what has already been said or written about him. Hence, let me just say a few words about him not as the public persona known to many Filipinos but simply as a Jesuit.

‘Dencio’

By

First, words of welcome and bon voyage. During my stint with the Philippine foreign service in Indonesia after the Edsa Revolution, I had the good fortune of having on my staff two young, idealistic and hard-working junior officers who contributed much to the success of the mission in Jakarta. At that time both were vice [...]
