SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR ALL: FAST-TRACKING CLEAN ENERGY

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR ALL: FAST-TRACKING CLEAN ENERGY

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

 

Green energy is making waves across the globe today. Diverse technologies that redound to sustainable energy are being developed at very dizzying paces.

Ramadan and Yoga

That seems ironic, doesn't it? Two words from worlds apart. And yet they are so close to one another, you'd be surprised just how close!



One similarity is fasting. Fasting occurs in all traditions in some form or another: Christians have Lent, Muslims have Ramadan, Hindus have Durga Puja and Ekadasis. In yoga's sister science, ayurveda, cleansing fasts based on Doshas are used.

ELECTORAL VIOLENCE PERSISTS, URGENT REFORMS NEEDED

ELECTORAL VIOLENCE PERSISTS, URGENT REFORMS NEEDED

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Clientelism—the politics of patronage and spoils—persists in many developing countries. My own region, the ASEAN, hasn’t clearly built stronger institutions and modern political culture that can undercut and eliminate clientelism once and for all.
