My life in a nutshell Traveling To The Third World Is Great And Also It Sucks The thing about visiting the Developing World when you live in the Developed World is that it’s a rich, eye-opening, perspective-building cultural experience and the other thing about it is that it sucks. You know that upsetting person who posts pictures on Facebook of themselves doing some delicious- or beautiful- or wild-looking activity in somewhere like Tanzania or India or Peru? And even though they’re posting for their own purposes as part of a skillful weave of Image Crafting and Jealousy Inducing, it makes you yearn anyway as you sit there in whatever shitty life you’ve chosen for yourself? The thing you need to remember is that they did some careful cropping on the photo—they cropped out the misery. Misery is a government requirement when you visit a country like Tanzania or India or Peru and your body is totally unaccustomed to the ecosystem, but that’s easy to forget when you’re not there. You should still be jealous—just not that jealous. 1) The Place. 2) The People. * Here

COLECCION BIOS Y ETHOS El texto aquí propuesto, Salud y Neoliberalismo, del profesor Víctor de Currea- Lugo, recoge los aspectos centrales presentados por el autor en los cursos de Especialización, Magíster y Doctorado de Bioética en la Universidad El Bosque durante 2009, cursos que significaron su regreso a Colombia y a la academia. Parte de su periplo incluyó el estudio de las dinámicas económicas en las últimas décadas y su impacto en las reformas en salud. Este libro llena un vacío al poner el debate sobre las reformas en salud en un contexto más amplio, con una perspectiva menos inmediatista. El debate, por ejemplo, sobre la ley de salud colombiana (ley 100 de 1993) no se limita al problema de su financiación, para la cual el Estado declara la emergencia social al mismo tiempo que las empresas de salud aparecen en las listas de las empresas más grandes de Colombia, sino que el autor toma distancia para examinar un proceso que nace en los años 1970 y se prolonga hasta nuestros días.

When I was in school at SJSU, studying visual development and illustration, I was always trying to give myself little concept projects to keep myself sharp and thinking. Heads up 20 Things I Learned While I Was in North Korea Well that was weird. I was only in North Korea for five days, but that was more than enough to make it clear that North Korea is every bit as weird as I always thought it was. If you merged the Soviet Union under Stalin with an ancient Chinese Empire, mixed in The Truman Show and then made the whole thing Holocaust-esque, you have modern day North Korea. It’s a dictatorship of the most extreme kind, a cult of personality beyond anything Stalin or Mao could have imagined, a country as closed off to the world and as secretive as they come, keeping both the outside world and its own people completely in the dark about one another—a true hermit kingdom. A question, then, is “Why would an American tourist ever be allowed into the country?” Allow me to illustrate what I believe is the reasoning behind my being let in: High Level Government Meeting And so, I was allowed in, along with a small group of other Westerners, accompanied (at all times) by three North Korean guides. 1. 2. 3. This is it.
