WE MARK All Souls’ Day next Sunday. Rites of recalling our departed vary from offering of mass to cramming cemeteries studded with two-day-long garish electric bulbs.
IT'S Halloween week and horror stories are coming out about the dead, undead and the living dead.
The dead are those who have passed on, the undead are dead people who think they are alive, and the living dead are zombies who mindlessly, and without mind-body coordination, go after those who are alive to eat them or suck the life out of them.
A RECENT Sun Life Financial Asia study reveals that Filipinos are among the unhealthiest in Asia. The study which covers eight markets across the Asia Pacific region shows that the Philippines has the highest levels of family history of chronic illness as well as preventable medical conditions.
WHAT must it have been for the family of Private First Class Joseph Scott Pemberton
when they first heard the news?
IF there’s one thing that we should learn about the ongoing Senate Blue Ribbon sub-committee investigation on the allegedly overpriced P2.3-billion Makati City parking building and other related anomalies, it is that “absolute power corrupts absolutely” and that political dynasties breeds corruption.

Michelle: Yes, you got the question right. It saddened me when I heard that someone I know, who recently got married, is thinking of ending it. She is firm in her decision not to go back to her husband, who is also not making any effort to win her back.

I’m working as a nursemaid to an only child (a daughter) and at the same time I’m in my junior year in college. For three years everything went fine until an older brother of the mother of my charge came to visit. When he met me, he immediately told his sister that he would marry me—just like that!
