Are menstrual cups and reusable pads the better option?

Inquirer Breaking News - Wed, 01/27/2021 - 04:18
There is a menstrual cup in our bathroom that has been staring at me for the past year and a half. I had been toying with the idea of making the switch to more eco-friendly feminine products for a while. What clinched it was when I was egged on by a colleague who said, with much enthusiasm, "It will change your life!" But since it was delivered, it has sat on that shelf for only one reason: The menstrual cup really intimidates me. Look at it. How, right? For a lifelong disposable sanitary pad user, so many questions and concerns flash through my mind: How do I put that thing in? What if it leaks? Do I just pull it out? How long can I use it? Is it safe? In general, we've been ma...

What happens after death?

Inquirer Breaking News - Wed, 01/27/2021 - 04:12
There are many nonphysical phenomena that science cannot explain. This does not mean, however, that they do not exist, nor are they merely a product of one's imagination. I just recently finished watching the six-part Netflix documentary series called "Surviving Death." It is a comprehensive and objective presentation about what happens after death, based on actual interviews and scientific research on near-death experience (NDE), spirit communication, mediumship, close encounters with ghosts, seeing relatives when dying and even reincarnation. The series does not force viewers to believe or accept one point of view or another, but merely presents facts. Viewers are left to make th...

Rethinking prevention on Day 12 of my COVID infection

Inquirer Breaking News - Wed, 01/27/2021 - 04:06
As I write this, I'm on Day 12 of my COVID-19 infection, and although I still need to repeat my nasopharyngeal swab and other laboratory parameters by Day 14, I am healed already by practically all medical parameters. I had severe initial symptoms but the fever lasted for only six hours, and all the other symptoms gradually dissipated until I was symptom-free in 48 hours. Truly a miraculous rate of recovery! And at age 67 with a few other comorbidities, I am certain God's healing hand played a major role in my amazing recovery. You can never be too careful with COVID-19. With all the precautions I've been taking, I was so confident that there was no way the virus could breach my de...

Bienvenido Noriega Jr.: ‘The best playwright we ever produced’

Inquirer Breaking News - Wed, 01/27/2021 - 03:42
In his short but extremely productive life, the playwright Bienvenido M. Noriega Jr. managed to achieve enviable success in two disparate disciplines, theater and economics. His academic record is just as impressive: University of the Philippines (UP), BA Economics, cum laude and class valedictorian, 1971; Harvard University, Master in Public Administration, 1979, straight A student.

In 1995, Ateneo de Manila University posthumously conferred upon Noriega its prestigious Tanglaw ng Lahi Award, which noted: "The significance of Noriega's achievement in Theater and Film will be impoverished unless it is put in place with his career in banking and government se...
