Have been donating blood since the late nineties in multiple countries. This past week, it was my first time doing so in the country I have been living in for the past 8 years. It was about time.
I was lucky enough to watch today what could be Andy Murray ’s last game. Not only at the Australian Open in Melbourne, but in general. The pain has prompted him to announce that he dreams about playing Wimbledon this year, but he might be not able to.
I came across John Carreyrou’s book Bad Blood in a year-end LinkedIn post written by Bill Gates. He has made a list of top 10 books that impressed him in 2018. He does that every year.
And a great book it is, indeed. I couldn’t leave it for about 30 hours, counting my sleeping time. I found it very well researched and providing different aspects and references. Pure investigative journalism.
Out of all the physical conditions of water coming down from the sky, snow is arguably the most beautiful one. Naturally, if we don’t count the calm rhythm of minor rain falling down while one does not have to go anywhere, but stay at home with a good book.
The majority of people don’t have the luxury to keep themselves informed. Life simply prevents them to allocate the necessary time or budget to do so. The current state of journalism doesn’t help either.
At this age, the serious and trustworthy media assets are either sitting behind a paywall or are easily overtaken by viral fake news on social media. But this is for the people who actually possess the technical capabilities and equipment to consume online.
