Happy Sunday, Everybody!


Since these stories I collect here are mostly about difficulties and hardships, I decided to try to lead with three things I liked over the week. First on my favorite things of this week list is learning the method of right brain drawing. That was mostly last week, but we finished off on Monday. Ever since then I am trying to experiment with right brain writing and right brain learning, you may read about these later.

Another favorite moment of this week was Jimmy Kimmel’s heartfelt monologue about his son’s condition, and of course the positive ending of his story. I did not like how politicians weren’t affected by stories like this though, but this one is about favorites, so let’s pass on this part for now.

As a fan of British culture and clearly everything British, on Thursday morning I had a few hours of concern. I mean, seriously, a 3am “emergency” meeting for something that is not going to happen for another few months?! Anyway, happy well-deserved retirement, Prince Philip!

And a last minute addition, of course the release of 82 Chibok girls kidnapped in 2014 by Boko Haram in Nigeria, this is really happy news! 

Now, let’s see the posts from this relatively uneventful week.

The Budget Passed by Congress Cuts UN Peacekeeping. This may not end well.

Seemingly, most of the US’ share in the UN budget is safe, but even a little cut could hurt a lot.

Prison Politics in the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict

I am of course not a mediation expert, and I would never have thought that these hunger strikes could in any way advance the momentarily stranded peace process, but who knows?

The Brexit Bill and the Law of Treaties

And let’s indulge in some treaty interpretation to conclude.
