Acabo de leer sobre la muerte por frío del periodista inglés Lee Halpin al intentar intentar mostrar la vida de los ´sin techo. Me pregunto: ¿Dónde está el límite ante la necesidad de ´ganarse la vida`, tu vocación y las exigencias de "la jungla laboral"? Quiero pensar que está en el sentido común, en las necesidades básicas, en la ética, en la honestidad, en el talento y en la dignidad personal y profesional de cada uno, y en la jerarquía que cada cual le dé a estas cosas. ¿Merece la pena morir? ¿Merece... read more »
Ο Sir Alex Ferguson δε θα τιμωρηθεί τελικά για τη συμπεριφορά του στον πρόσφατο αγώνα με τη Newcastle καθώς δεν αποτυπώθηκε στο φύλλο αγώνα η επιθετική του συμπεριφορά έναντι του διαιτητή και του επόπτη της αναμέτρησης μετά την επικύρωση του δεύτερου γκολ των Magpies.

Following on from my blog post about the Chamilia Bloggers Event last month, I wanted to show you more photos from the day, and tell you a little more about what we got up to!
The London bloggers who came up for the event had never been to Newcastle before, so we were treated to a guided tour around the city center by some people who were working for Newcastle Fashion Week. Even though I know Newcastle pretty well, it was still really interesting and we were told things I never knew, and I even saw a f... read more »
