And here it is in english:

He sat on the couch in the corner and leaned over the wooden table with his cellphone on his hands. The fast movements of his fingers to all directions and the deep devotion on the screen gave the impression that he was playing a game, almost manically.

"why", he writes, "I don’t know, or perhaps I’m embarrassed by the knowledge that I simply want to cling to a place that has a smell I know well. Ultimately, these are the delusions of a solitary writer — one who no longer has anything to lose, having observed, at length, Syrians attempting to win back their country, then losing everything."

The man in the white house sits, naked and obscene, a pustule of ego, in the harsh light, a man whose grasp exceeded his understanding, because his understanding was dulled by indulgence.

My Family's Slave

source: https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2017/06/lolas-story/524490/
Her name was Eudocia Tomas Pulido. We called her Lola. She was 4 foot 11, with mocha-brown skin and almond eyes that I can still see looking into mine—my first memory. She was 18 years old when my grandfather gave her to my mother as a gift, and when my family moved to the United States, we brought her with us. No other word but slave encompassed the life she lived. Her days began before everyone else woke and ended after we went to bed. She prepared three meals a day, cleaned the house, waited on my parents, and took care of my four siblings and me. My parents never paid her, and they scolded her constantly. She wasn’t kept in leg irons, but she might as well have been. So many nights, on my way to the bathroom, I’d spot her sleeping in a corner, slumped against a mound of laundry, her fingers clutching a garment she was in the middle of folding.

A Mississippi high school failed to secure a computer lab that was the scene of a girl's alleged #rape in 2014 and janitors cleaned it before law enforcement could collect #evidence, according to court records. District lawyers said that happened because the girl didn't initially say the sex was forced. The three boys accused were suspended but returned to class days later.

Asma al Assad – Das schöne Gesicht der Diktatur

Asma al-Assad, die First Lady Syriens. Der Westen sah in ihr das Ideal einer arabischen Herrscherin: schön, gebildet, modern. Heute gilt sie als Komplizin eines Diktators, der Verbrechen an seinem Volk begeht. Ihre Geschichte ist die Geschichte einer Täuschung und sie beginnt bei uns – im Westen.

The ungrateful #refugee: ‘We have no #debt to repay’

source: https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/apr/04/dina-nayeri-ungrateful-refugee
At first, the children were welcoming, teaching me English words using toys and pictures, but within days the atmosphere around me had changed. Years later, I figured that this must have been how long it took them to tell their parents about the Iranian kid. After that, a group of boys met me in the yard each morning and, pretending to play, pummelled me in the stomach. They followed me in the playground and shouted gibberish, laughing at my dumbfounded looks. A few weeks later, two older boys pushed my hand into a doorjamb and slammed it shut on my little finger, severing it at the first segment. I was rushed to the hospital, carrying a piece of my finger in a paper napkin. The segment was successfully reattached.

Fishing, ranching and timber once were the big industries here, but now it’s pot. The trade is worth billions – and #police say that in recent years, it’s become intermingled with the #sex trade and organized #crime.

The mouth of Gangotri glacier by Indranil Sinharoy
The Gangotri glacier is the source of the great Indian river Ganga. It is one of the largest glaciers in the Himalayas with an estimated volume of over 27 cubic km. The glacier is about 30 km (19 miles) long and 2 to 4 km (1 to 2 miles) wide. The terminus of the Gangotri Glacier is called "Goumkh" (cow's face) because it resembles a cow's mouth.

in 1989 I nearly died when the mouth of a Swiss glacier broke and a black wall of water mixed with huge stones came down that totally dry bed of the rivlet I was in, just got out in time... the earth was trembing and sounds louder than thunder in the air, sat there at the steep edge of that crook bed... still thankfull for that "adventure" (just told our dear ramil rodaje)...
