Bits & Pieces

When tragedy strikes, we learn

This week has been very difficult for many in Ethiopia and across the world. The tragic crash of Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 to Nairobi has broken the hearts and devastated many.

Lessons not learned

This past week we celebrated the 123rd anniversary of the victory of the Battle of Adwa. So much has been said about the importance of this battle.

Protecting my security

I was walking home around 7:30PM and the alleys were dark, but I was within the neighbourhood and it would be silly to drive.

The life in the years

I celebrated my birthday this week, and it felt like somewhat of a monumental age. I had the great honor of spending my birthday week negotiating and drafting documents that will go on to shape policy on a continental level in Africa.

The truth about Teff

Social media was in frenzy when news regarding a case concerning the teff patent was won in the Netherlands.

Time lost chasing

I was with a friend a few days ago, who needed to change foreign currency into local currency and I told him about the forex ATM which I find quite fascinating.

The fleeting interest

I have been following the news lately and the stories about protests and inflation and cost of living as well as the Italian head of state’s comment against the French government have really got me thinking about politics.  

The cost of victory

I was at a traffic light when a beggar who held a sign in Amharic approached my car and stuck out the sign so I can read it.

Health, the mental kind….

Lately I  have been thinking quite a bit about mental health. I was recently informed of a young boy, barely in college, who took his own life. No one knows what happened, what he was dealing with, why he did what he did.

The problem with bandage solutions 

I came across a report on Fana Television discussing new limitations on passport issuance from Ethiopian immigration and must be befuddled by the news.
