You know life is weird when venturing into dystopian fiction provides blessed relief from the real world. Well, maybe not relief, but «The Ministry for the Future», the latest novel by Kim Stanley Robinson certainly made me forget about our present woes for a few days. The book, set in the near future and in a city that i’m sure you Ronsters are familiar with, (it begins with a Z if you need a clue,) centres on the possibility of a ministry who portfolio is to advocate rights for future citizens as if their rights are as valid as those of the present and the impact on climate change.

Not light fare, but definitely good for thinking outside the box.

Whenever a new Japanese restaurant opens somewhere, you can be sure that I’m not far behind. This new locale is called Ooki and serves gyoza, ramen, tempura, udon, Japanese curries and sake. The interior is very authentic, the

The CALWHA project (Children and Adolescents Living With HIV / AIDS) helps children and adolescents with HIV / AIDS in Tanzania, by funding and organizing “activity days” in two hospitals in the north of the country: the Nansio District Hospital in Ukerewe and the Shirati KMT Hospital in Shirati.
This region of the country had the highest rate of HIV infection when the project was created in 2011. The poverty of local families, the lack of adherence to treatment and the stigmatization of people with HIV / AIDS were and are still major issues in these regions.
