Baby's First Bite

  Baby's first bite. Discovering taste, and texture.         First bite. Chelsea and Martin steamed the vegetable until it was very soft so that it would be easy to swallow without much chewing. They are following a movement that lets babies feed themselves (self-fed) by letting him discover texture/taste by grabbing and manipulating his own food rather than have it pureed and spoon-fed. Sounds good, fun and messy to me.             Notice the plastic covering on the floor, a spoon, a bowl, a...

Ethics in Writing: The Case of Saudi Arabia

Posted: 1/8/2020 | January 8th, 2020 As I scrolled through my social feeds recently, I noticed, set against desert backgrounds, a number travel “influencers” extolling the beauty and virtue of Saudi Arabia.1 But the majority weren’t there to take advantage of the new tourist visa and explore on their own. No, they weren’t there to see what this new openly country was really about. They were there on paid press trips, funded by a company called Gateway KSA, an NGO designed to promote the country...

Destination profile: Livorno, Italy

Livorno is a typical harbour town, complete with fresher-than-fresh seafood and a lively fishing heritage. However, as Tuscany’s second-largest city, it often faces unfair comparisons to the region’s rural ideal. But, look beyond its busy port to a charmingly worn old town interspersed with canals and fringed by a Belle Époque waterfront and pebbly beaches.
