Andrea Rodés
I write about culture, art and literature, because I do not understand the world without books and poetry.

When I was a little girl I used to isolate with myself reading tales, now I could spend hours writing them. I think we need to give voice to artistic creators, they usually have a unique perspective of reality and can challenge things that we usually take as a fact.

I also like to write about economic issues from a social point of view, telling the human stories and the protagonists behind them: immigrants, entrepreneurs, refugee families ... From Philadelphia, Barcelona, Moscow, Beijing, Myanmar… every human history can help us to have a more open and global vision of the world.

Ethic experts are concerned that despite removing herself from the management of her Ivanka Trump fashion company and becoming an unpaid government employee in March, her political and business interests are still so closely linked that she is deep in an ethical “danger zone” over conflict of interest laws.

De Nueva York a Medellín, pasando por Bagdad. Un mismo cielo, tres maneras diferentes de vivir. Una exposición en Glasgow intenta comprender cómo se organizan las ciudades y quién define cómo se ha de vivir en ellas a través de la obra de cuatro artistas contemporáneas, entre ellas, dos latinoamericanas: la colombiana Dora Mejía y la brasileña Clari Ianni.

La producción de quinoa tiene una larga tradición en el altiplano andino. Entre 2006 y 2013, Perú y Bolivia pudieron beneficiarse del boom de su consumo en Europa y Estados Unidos, pero la masificación de su producción en los años siguientes ha puesto en jaque el frágil equilibrio socioeconómico y medioambiental de una región que aún no ha logrado salir de la pobreza.

In “Shattered,”  journalists Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes portrait Clinton's campaign as a Titanic-like disaster: an epic fail made up of a series of perverse and often avoidable missteps by an out-of-touch candidate and her strife-ridden staff that turned “a winnable race” into “another iceberg-seeking campaign ship.”
