Brazil, Russia, India, China and...


Just heard the CEO of Nissan declaring that Indonesia will buy a lot of Nissans in the future. It's one of the biggest growth markets apparently.

Fingers the supposed good times last this time!

MLK Soccer

My friend teaches at a school around the corner, it's a tough school by all accounts.

On the eve of USA vs Ghana, this is her school's soccer team's story.


Recently I complained about being a tad bored. My sister suggested I take up a hobby.

Over the past week or two, I have taken up ironing clothes. It's meditative, in a washing the dishes sort of way.

In any case, the only thing that has been unsettling in my overly tranquil world recently has been a sense of sensory overload. I am one of those people that needs media when I am not engaging with people.

Having breakfast I listen to Irish radio. I listen to podcasts going asleep and walking to the subway. I skim my RSS feeds on my phone while sitting on the toilet. MP3s plug the rest of the silence.

I soak up information throughout the day, and, it doesn't feel good anymore. It's becoming information gluttony.

Maybe that's why I am becoming to love ironing, cooking and washing up.

Closer to God

When you are closer to sin you are closer to god

Just as a thief might be intimate with the criminal justice system.


Genocide is not just about people killing but story killing
