Un an… de mouvances. Une défense de quoi?

Un an et un mois s’est écoulé déjà depuis le début des confinements. Une année mouvementée, qui est à tout jamais gravée dans les pages de l’Histoire et qui continuerait. Le mouvementé s’est traduit par la reprise de manifestations dans les rues contre certaines formes de corruptions institutionnelles, et, en partie aussi, dans de nombreux…

Europe, relations with the world, and its indifference.

In the age of a raging pandemic, the last reminder we need is that of the US-EU relations. Especially, after the year the world has had and will continue to have, it is the last conversation anyone is willing to ponder. Yet, just as we did in 2008, we’re wondering what’s to come next. The…

Who are we, if we know who we are? Still divided but turning a page.

Two weeks ago, a fascist terrorist like “mob” crashed into the US capital all the way to the federal government’s buildings.  The reaction? Journalists: This is a never-seen before scene… and other missteps comparing to war zones created by the US imperialism. Politicians: This is not the United States of America. However, that’s the problem….

The thing about journalism..

In the past decade, I noticed a certain trend. It made me rethink my purpose in college. Even after that, though, it still continued. As much as I tried over the years, it was harder and harder to find someone who believed in the dedication to the work on facts. Not everyone takes part in…

Changement, Chat, ment, ange

Il y en a qui mènent une lutte d’existence.Il y en a qui sont ignorants.Il y en a qui ne veulent pas comprendre.Il y en a qui ne veulent pas apprendre.Il y en a qui se passionnent pour les nuances. Ces notes de piano au soleil d’automne,Une douceur en paix, que je ne savais pas…

Voting in the Major A to F chords

The following is a reaction to an article read. And a very important message. The shame. The United States is literally the only country in the world to have an election-voting rights system the way it does. Citizens are not computers. Paper ballots are not fraud. And writing is a necessary tool in life but…

The broken record cracked.

Someone told me a few days ago, “we need to talk about it. We need to react.” This isn’t analysis. It’s officially too personal. But it’s important. Black Lives Matter. It’s not a trend. It’s not a fashion statement. It’s not even a lifestyle. It is a fact. It is reality. I have seen too…

8 clippings of news

This week in the news. We wrote a piece like this a few years ago. We’re going to try it out. This past year is an extraordinary year, not necessarily in a positive way. We’ve already discussed certain events. These past few weeks though have been charged with tension, emotions, and craziness. 1. Turkey’s Erdogan…

“Brexit Past the Deadline”, Get Ready for Level 2

🎶 🎶”But it’s ruining the news every single night.”🎶 🎶 It is. It really really is. It has. It really really has. And now an Irish band turned it into a song. (See below for their “published-on-Youtube” video) Because really, how else do you want to express every emotion known to humankind about Brexit?  Yes,…

How to build a fire

This is a collaboration with Hrach Jinbashian, who provided the photographs from Lebanon. Currently in Armenia, he was present in Lebanon at the beginning of the protests. A warm thank you to him. 105 fires, a broken political and economic system, corruption x10000, a proposed tax on WhatsApp, 2 million+ refugees, 4 million citizens, and…
