12-year-old California student ready to start university

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — A 12-year-old Sacramento student who already has three community college degrees and has been accepted to two University of California campuses says he plans on studying biomedical engineering and becoming a doctor and medical researcher by the time he turns 18. Tanishq Abraham has been accepted to UC Davis and received a regents scholarship to UC Santa Cruz, but he has yet to decide which university he'll attend, reported Sacramento television station CBS 13 Sunday (http://cbsloc.al/1qDdGlD). "I think I'll be 18 when I get my M.D.," he said. Tanishq started community college at age 7 and last year he received associate's degrees from American River College, a community college in Sacramento, in general science; math and physical science; and foreign language studies. Professors at the college didn't initially want him …

Now trending

By Isabelle Laureta Social media has been on fire. Elections are over, but people are still fighting ever so passionately over their choice of candidates. They’ve created their own hashtags and even got top spots on the most trending topics list on Twitter. At one point, I guess it’s a blessing in disguise because, for a moment, we were spared from being exposed to unnecessary selfies, pointless rants no one really cares about, and hugot lines that we’re honestly getting tired of. It’s such a breath of fresh air to see that, on rare occasions, people (Millennials, mostly) are passionate about something socially relevant. But like most things in life, it came with a price. It wasn’t long before I started noticing how people are just plain bashing instead of having a meaningful and fruitful discussion. You don’t have to be an expert to …

A walk to remember

Portrait by Noel B. Pabalate Every day, Meriza Mamaril would walk for 30 minutes from Brgy. Barangka, Marikina to Miriam College High School. Little did she know that the half-an-hour walk she took for four years, every school day, would lead her to the stage—to a diploma and a valedictory speech. Meriza never hid the fact that her parents were street vendors of itlog (egg) and kwek kwek (deep fried battered quail eggs), that they didn’t have their own house, or that she couldn’t afford to ride public transportation going to school. She wasn’t ashamed that prior to studying at Miriam College, she was a public school student at Barangka Elementary School and that to be able to study in Miriam, she needed a scholarship from Tulong Dunong. Her station in life has motivated her to work hard and achieve her dreams of giving her family a better life. “I want us to have our own house. I want them to get out …

So… What now?

By Isabelle Laureta It’s been a tough three months not only for the electoral candidates, but also for normal Filipino citizens. If you haven’t been on social media especially these past weeks, then God bless your pure innocent soul. You’ve just been saved from about a decade’s worth of headaches and resentment. With the drastic change we’re bound to face as a country, it’s only expected that we engage in meaningful, albeit heated, political discussions with others, and also within ourselves. But honestly, the presidential elections this year has been so stressful that I just couldn’t wait for all of it to be over so we could all get on with our normal, humane lives. Here are the things you should do once now that we can put this most divisive exercise …

Stuck in the Middle

In this world of dreams and realities, of yes and no, there’s a gray area huge and—an area where we’re not quite sure if what we’re doing is right, a place where we often long for something greater that is not even in sight. This is exactly the struggle of Jan, played by Blake Jones, in the an-hour-and-a-half rock opera Gray Ground interwoven with the music of the band The Black Vomits. Jan is a writer who wakes up every day and wonders whether or not he will get his big break, but he gets sucked into the vortex of writing press releases and satisfying his clients. “What makes Gray Ground relevant to our times is that the main character is a writer desperately trying to make one great piece of literary …
