To love or to hate... Donald Trump

To love or to hate... Donald Trump

The WPI program started almost one month ago. In these days, the most repeated thing is that this 2016 presidential election is unusual, the most weird election in the recent years of the United States.

That idea has been repeated by citizens on the streets, academics, journalist, or politicians (democrats or republicans).

The first thing that I did when I arrived to Saint Paul on Friday August 8th for attending to the WPI Fellowship was turning on the TV to see what was on the news.

Inertia is not That easy

Inertia is not That easy

Sleep deprived, our starved selves had once again taken refuge in the ever trusted black coffee to march on. From the subway to our next destination. Fatigue and city hopping has blurred our comprehension, enough to not be able to distinguish one city from the other. What remains constant is this inertia, to hop and to ask question (by now almost drab and repetitive).
