How sex-offenders got their Trump card

Personally, I think that neither should take … More How sex-offenders got their Trump card

Life has moments when it appears stable, but so does nitroglycerine

I think that “are you O.K.” is the most hated question I have ever heard in my life.

On Trust: The Tale of the Gut and the Russian Syndrome

I never fully understood why the concept of human intuition has been so underappreciated by the society at large. As we mature we are constantly subjected to moulding which doesn’t waste any space or consideration for our “gut feeling”. Throughout our schooling, pursuit of degrees, family relationships and wider relationships we are often taught that … More On Trust: The Tale of the Gut and the Russian Syndrome
