Jenny Rogneby, scriitoare suedeză de romane polițiste, se documentează la Spitalul Universitar Karolinska. Am citit cărți ale unor autori români care n-au căutat nici măcar pe Google să vadă dacă polițiștii noștri sînt detectivi, sau locotenenți, sau inspectori. Cred că a fost un caz în care un l...

By doing this I can work out plot kinks, generate new ideas, and maintain a high level of energy for a pro...

I recently got into a conversation with someone who wants to do more/better photography, and as such things usually do, the conversation went immediately to “what camera should I buy?”


Which made me realize there might be value in writing up a post about how that isn’t where most people should sta...

Last week marked 40 years since Franco Basaglia’s revolutionary work in Trieste, Italy, led to the groundbreaking Legge 180 (Law 180, also known as “Basaglia Law”), which ended the practice of involuntary confinement in asylums throughout Italy.
