Mind Builders Preschool
Are you looking for a preschool for your child? Mind-
builders Preschool is offering big discounts for reserva-
tions made before March 14, 2008.

Mindbuilders Preschool practices for its core curriculum
Howard Gardner’s Theory of Multiple Intelligences (MI),
a new educational system that aims to bring out the po-
tentials in each child. Traditionally, education is conduct-
ed and measured in terms of linguistic and mathemati-
cal intelligences and anyone who scores well in both has
been thought to be very smart. In contrary, according
to MI, each child is intelligent in eight different ways in
varying degrees: Linguistic, Mathematical, Naturalist, In-
terpersonal, Intra-personal, Musical, Kinesthetic and Vi-
sual- Spatial. In this progressive method of teaching, all
other intelligences of a child are also recognized.

Children are empowered to take a more active role in their learning through unconventional, artistic, creative, and inventive ways.
They are intrinsically motivated and find schoolwork fun because they can follow their interests and express their knowledge in
ways that are meaningful for them. The goal is for children to have a deep understanding of the concepts taught, providing a solid
foundation and equipping them with a readiness sufficient for formal schooling. As the children’s “mind- builders,” the teachers
are serious life-long learners and keep themselves abreast with the latest trends and studies in the ever-growing field of Early Child-
hood Education. Mindbuilders also offers Kindermusik programs, daycare, academic tutorials and Chinese tutorials.

The L’Incontro Experience
Tucked away in the tree-lined street of Nicanor Garcia (formerly Reposo) is another one of Ma-
nila’s favorite Italian haunts: L’Incontro. L’Incontro opened its doors in 1999, and is owned and
operated by Italian Gino Martinel.

gino was raised in Northern Italy, in an area close to the Alps. Although his family was already
in the food business there (owning a small restaurant in their town) Gino originally did not plan
on following that path. He worked mainly in construction, traveling the world for most of his
life, traveling the world for most of his life. He first came across the Philippines in 1988, and of
all the countries he visited and lived in, it was here he eventually decided to settle. He left the
construction business in early 1999, and later the same year, he opened L’Incontro.

Having been in construction gave Gino a fine advantage. He was able to design and build the
restaurant in only 45 days. He chose the then lonely street known as Reposo to create the foundation for what later would become on of
Manila’s bastions for Northern Italian cuisine. The idea was for the restaurant to become a destination-a place people would make an effort to
travel to.

L’Incontro means “meeting place,” and its interior interior design of cosy tables and chairs, brick inlays, and simple decoration makes it an ideal
location for a lunch or dinner rendezvous. Service staff is dressed in traditional white shirts and vests, and have all been working at the restau-
                                              rant since its inception (trained by Gino himself!). The food remains simple, yet made with the
                                              freshest ingredients, which Gino picks out himself every morning from the market. L’Incontro
                                              specializes in traditional Northern Italian cuisine, which uses mainly olive oil as its base ingredi-
                                              ent. L’Incontro is also known for its grilled steaks, which are brought raw to the table before grill-
                                              ing, for the customer’s choice and inspection.

                                               At L’Incontro, simplicity and consistency are the keys. Customers keep coming back because they
                                               are drawn to the place. Be it the multitude of chianti bottles hanging from the walls, or the color-
                                               ful dried pastas on display near the kitchen, L’Incontro gives one the feeling of being taken care of
                                               in a warm Italian home. the cheerful presence of Gino’s own 11-year old son welcoming guests
                                               at the door is a charming plus. “My cuisine is not rich,” says Gino, “but it has good flavor.” That
                                               about sums up not only the food, but the whole L’Incontro experience as well.

Imelda’s Shoes on Display In Marikina

The Footwear Museum at Marikina City, the Mecca of Philippine shoe industry in
Manila attracts thousands of curious visitors to see the shoe collection of Philip-
pines’ former beauty queen as well as first lady, Imelda Marcos.

A collection of around 758 pairs in glass showcases were under display. These
include black leather boots, silk brocade stilettos and leather sling backs by local
designers. Few international names like Chanel, Charles Jourdan, Bally and Bruno
Magli can be seen here.

The museum is located in a 202-year old building which used to be a rice granary during the Spanish colonial period and
a warehouse for arsenal during the Japanese occupation in World War Two.

Can Science find God?                                  netic interactions requires divine intervention. Discovering the Higgs boson, confirming the

                                                      picture of cosmology, there will be a little less for religion to explain. But religion has evolved
                                                      along with science. It is something created by human beings, and as human beings learn more
                                                      and more their religion changes. Today, especially in the more established religious sects in the
                                                      West, they’ve learned to stop trying to explain nature religiously and leave that to science.
                                                      But won’t some people expect to find the presence of a grand designer in that final theory?

                                                      That’s what was thought at the beginning, but we see less and less possibility of that. The
                                                      more we learn about the universe the less sign we see of an intelligent designer. Isaac Newton
                                                      thought that it would require an explanation in terms of the action of God to explain how the
                                                      sun shone. Now we know that it shines because of the heat produced by the conversion of
                                                      hydrogen into helium in its core. People who expect to find evidence of divine action in nature,

is to find signs of an elusive particle called
the Higgs boson—also known as the “God
particle” because it might ultimately lead to
a grand theory of the universe. What impact
will the experiments have on our ideas of the
cosmos and our place in it?
After this experiment, will we have a theory
of how the universe was created?

It is possible that this experiment will give
theoretical physicists a brilliant new idea that
will explain all the particles and all the forces
that we know and bring everything together
in a beautiful mathematically consistent theo-
ry. But it is very unlikely that a final theory will
come just from this experiment. If had to bet,
I would bet it won’t be that easy.
The Ultimate theory of the universe un-
earthed, how will this impact religion?

As science explains more and more, there is
less and less need for religious explanations.
Originally, in the history of human beings,
everything was mysterious. Fire, rain, birth,
death, all seemed to require the action of
some kind of divine being. As time has passed,
we have explained more and more in a purely
naturalistic way. This doesn’t contradict reli-
gion, but it does takes away one of the origi-
nal motivations for religion.
You’ve said that Darwin’s theory of natural
selection was the biggest step in this direc-
tion. What about the possible CONT. p/12
findings in particle physics?

I don’t think that discoveries in elementary
particle physics in themselves are likely to
have anything like the impact of Darwin’s
theory. After all, I don’t know of any religious
people who say that the breaking of the sym-
metry between the weak and the electromag-
