I finally made it to my home after a few weeks of traveling. I didn’t feel tired at all during the trip but jumping into work directly after I got back made me feel a bit dizzy 🙂
I have been writing and reading a lot for ProjectPost30 to be able to keep it in track. My hard work pays it off. Hopefully I will share some good news soon.
This week I have got bunch of stuff to share with you.
Movie: Appropriate Behaviour
This film tells the story of a bisexual woman living in Brooklyn, who comes from a traditional Persian family. We watch her struggle with her identity and relationship through flashbacks.
Documentary: The Secret Rules of Modern Living: Algorithms
At this BBC production Mathematician, Professor Marcus du Sautoy shows us the hidden world of algorithms and reveals where these 2,000-year-old problem solvers came from, how they work, and what they have achieved.
I found this book in Brussels two weeks ago. I know the author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie from her TED Talk, but I didn’t have the chance to read any of her novels. When I came across her book, I couldn’t help myself but start reading it even in the bookstore. Dear Ijeawele is Adichie’s letter of response to her friend’s request, asking her how to raise her baby girl as a feminist.
There are fifteen invaluable suggestions on how to empower a daughter to become a strong, independent woman.
Place to be: Toukoul
Toukoul is an Ethiopian bar-eatery located in the heart of Brussels. The place serves a menu featuring dishes served with traditional injera. Everything I ate was super delicious. But you need to make reservation days before you want to go there 🙂
This is an Arabic word which more or less means “connections that create preference” or “relationships that give you influence.”
I have seen this word first time in Erin Meyer’s book, Culture Map which I recommended last week 🙂
