    Banks grows on you

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 17/08/2018

    » It's a relief to read a crime thriller that doesn't bill itself as a psychological mystery. Frankly I'm not an armchair psychologist, much less psychiatrist. I much prefer simple -- what you see is what you get -- people to complex -- you don't know the real me.

    Life, Harry Rolnick, Published on 06/08/2015

    » Before she reaches her third decade, Bangkok-born Natnaree "Ommi" Pipit-Suksun is beginning to stretch the boundaries in American ballet. As a dancer with the London Royal Ballet School, a Soloist Dancer in the San Francisco Ballet and now a Principal  Dancer with the San Jose Ballet Company, she is one of only two "non-Caucasian women" in America to reach this height.

    The cook did it

    Life, Bernard Trink, Published on 12/10/2015

    If you expect it, it's not a 'Black Swan'

    » It's the bread and butter of pundits to speculate what the world might look like after a relatively improbable but potentially disruptive event, like the UK's exit from the European Union or a Donald Trump victory in the US presidential election.
