Spoliarium is the oil-on-canvas masterpiece that first earned a gold medal for Juan Luna in the prestigious Exposicion Nacional de Bellas Artes (National Exhibition of Fine Arts) of 1884 in Madrid, Spain. Luna's signature work attempted to depict the horrors and pathos of the Spoliarium as it showed dead gladiators being dragged while some onlookers stood by eagerly waiting for the spoils; others looked on in horror while just across the chamber sat a woman, despondent and slumped on the floor and a man held a torch, presumably searching for the body of his kin.

Ask Mindy


"Magandang araw, Mindy! Nakakarindi nang marinig sa balita sa radyo o TV ang kabi-kabilang pagkahuli o pagpatay sa mga tulak o gumagamit ng ipinagbabawal na gamot. Kailan lamang ay nahuli pa ang isang sikat na aktor na may dala raw na isang kilo ng marijuana. Totoo bang maaari siyang makulong nang habambuhay? -Rap"


Halloooo, Rap! Oo nga, maging ako'y nababahala na sa kabi-kabilang paghuli at pagpatay. Ayon sa R.A. 9165 Section 5, life imprisonment o kaya'y kamatayan at multa mula P500,000 hanggang 10,000,000 ang ipapataw sa sinumang magtitinda o mamamahagi ng ipinagbabawal na gamot. May kaukulan ding parusa ang mga tagapondo at protektor nito. Nakapaloob naman sa Section 11 nito na ang sinumang may dala ng ilegal na droga ay maaaring patawan ng habambuhay na pagkakakulong at multa mula P500,000 hanggang P10,000,000 ang ipapataw sa sinumang may dala ng ilegal na droga: 10 gramo o higit pa ng opium, morphine, heroin, cocaine, shabu, marijuana oil; 500 gramo o higit pa ng marijuana, at 10 gramo o higit pa ng ecstasy, paramethoxyamphetamine (PMA), trimethoxyamphetamine (TMA), lysergic acid diethylamine (LSD), gamma hydroxyamphetamine (GHB), at iba pang bagong labas na gamot at mga derivates nito. May kaukulan ding parusa kung mas mababa sa dami ng nabanggit ang nasabat. Dahil sa wala naman talagang buting maidudulot ang paggamit ng bawal na gamot at nanganganib pa ang buhay ng mga nagtutulak at gumagamit nito, mabuti pang habang maaga'y tigilan o iwasan na ito.

Patintero, also called Tinubigan, Patubig or Lantay-lantay, is a popular street game among Pinoys. It is considered to be best played and enjoyed at night especially when the moon is full. The players start off the game by marking the ground with a rectangular shape about five to six meters, all divided into equal parts. Chalk or water is the most common kind of marker being used for this game, although sometimes the players may just draw lines on the ground by dragging their feet. The players are then divided into two teams of equal number. One team guards the area and tries to tag the members of the other team without stepping off the lines. The other team tries to get through all the two or three lines without being tagged. Both teams take turns to be runners and guards. Some of the game's players include the patotot, the pulis and “around the world”.
