Follow this link to read Luiza Artillero’s movie revue of the movie.
I am excited that a student took my suggestion to:
- Learn science (for non-science majors) by way of acquiring a taste for science fiction.
- Conceptualize advertising campaigns (my first set of students are advertising majors but for future readers of this blog, conceptualizing skills are for every professional) by studying science.
- Learn Adverstising and Science by way of movie watching and making. (I have suggested Lorenzo’s Oil as one non-science character learns science to solve his predicament. If one of my students can revue this one, it would be another great thrill for me.)
Luiza confesses that she is not into sci-fi and so double is my thrill that she extended her interest in this area by downloading her copy and watching it the soonest time possible. My hope is that she watches more. Steven Spielberg did lots in this genre. She concludes her review with a question “If you had a close encounter how would you react and what would you do?” To which my reply: I would do my best to make friends with them.
Jesuits in Science
Who are they? What are their contributions to science?
Taking upon myself this research as my contribution to ReIGNITE interest in science among my students and the general public.
Let me just say, this is me “Responding to the Continuous Challenges of Restoration”
The year 2014 marks the 200th anniversary of the Society of Jesus’ restoration after having been suppressed for 41 years, from 1773 to 1814. This July, the Ateneo de Manila University commemorates this important period in the history of the Society of Jesus Jesuits and the feast day of its founder, St. Ignatius of Loyola. The celebration which will be the Ignatian Festival 2014 is called ReIgnite and it will look at the calls for restoration in the socio-political, environmental and spiritual contexts.
The University is hoping for a big alumni contingent at the Ignatian Festival events. All activities are all free of charge.
Personalized invitation letter from Fr Kit Bautista SJ, Director for Alumni Relations, and calendar of events have been sent to all alumni via email yesterday. If you have not received your invitation, contact Efren Debulgado at tel no 426-6001 local 4082
For details and inquiries on the events, contact Mhir Delos Santos at 426-6001 local 4010 or visit www.ateneo.edu/if
St. Ignatius, Pray for us!
