Filipino-American Techies to Aid Filipino Scientists

Alcuaz is now National Artist

The newest national artist still looks distinguished gentleman. In short, he looks not the master-artist; he dresses tastefully, why, in the grand manner of the boulevardier (a lost species).

He graduated high school from San Beda, earned a law degree from Ateneo, partly to oblige his lawyer-father, but desisted from hurdling the bar. Instead, fired-up he studied art at U.P. without earning a degree. He painted, doggedly, assiduously, turning out canvass after canvass. Unhappy with the rote of academic traditional painting, he painted his own way nevertheless. This seduced him to be bold, an unknown painter showing his wares, for the first time at San Beda College Hall. He showed his artistic prowess in portraits, a better offshoot than his early master Amorsolo. It was 1953. He was 21 years old: the debut of a future master.

IP Philippines: Supports Filipino Patents

According to the new Director-General of Intellectual Property Office of the Philippines (IP Philippines), Ricardo R. Blancaflor, the growing number of patents on Filipino inventions certifies assurance against patent infringer and removes our country from the watch list of US. This will be the mission of their agency in the next five year. The office had confiscated about P5.6 billion worth of fake goods last year, and they expect to snitch at least the same amount this year.
