CENSER director joins talk on garbage crisis

“Before any technology can be applied, we have to maximize the use of a particular product to minimize unwanted consumer by-product. There is no such thing as garbage, only misplaced resource.”

Center for Natural Sciences and Environmental Research (CENSER) Director Dr. Eric Punzalan shared this simple solution as he gave his feedback on the research findings presented by the scientists of the University of the Philippines in a forum on “Talking Trash: A Scientific Discussion on Garbage” last February 21 in UP Diliman.

Generally, the scientists zeroed in on the the sanitary landfill technology as still the best possible solution to the worsening problem of garbage particularly in Metro Manila.

A scientific perspective on effective waste management was provided by the speakers as issues on sources and mechanisms of ground water contamination and geologic considerations of a dumping site were discussed in details. Punzalan is an organic chemist and has been doing research for 10 years in the field.

Power lunch a la DLSU-Manila to be served to high schoolers

In its continuing effort to invite the best and the brightest high school students from all over the country to live the Lasallian experience, De La Salle University-Manila hosted Lunch with the Titans.

The event was an informal gathering of some of the country’s key industry and government leaders and selected student applicants who topped the entrance examinations. It was held on February 26 at the M. Gaerlan Conservatory.

The event aimed to encourage high school students who applied for courses in the College of Business and Economics (CBE) to enrol at the University. These future movers and shakers in business were given an opportunity to interact with the La Salle alumni who are leaders in their respective fields in business, economics, or management. The College of Business and Economics was more than proud to present its outstanding alumni who shared to the student applicants insights instrumental to their success and how the University contributed to their formation.

CBE dean Dr. Tereso Tullao rendered the inspirational talk, while Economics Department vice chair Gerardo Largoza was the master of ceremony for the said event.

Errata

In last week’s story, DLSU-Manila admin backs Brother Andrew for VPA post, we should have written that the nomination of Brother Andrew was made in view of Dr. Wyona Patalinghug’s contract term as VPA, which ends this May.

In the same issue, we inadvertently mentioned that Dr. Alfredo Robles Jr. belongs to the International Studies Department, instead of the Political Science Department. Our apologies.
