Seeds of discontent: Argentina's farmers turn cool on their man Macri

Between Worlds.

Miranda France discusses literary translation for Prospect: Here’s a translator’s tale: it’s early morning and I’m working on a scene from an Argentinian thriller. A woman has discovered her husband’s infidelity and leaves him a chilling message on the mirror written in rouge. In rouge. That doesn’t sound right. Although I’ve never tried it, I think it would be hard to write on glass with a cream rouge and impossible with a powdered one. Surely you’d use lipstick? I turn to WordReference, the on...

Best beaches in Patagonia, Argentina

While South America has some of the most diverse natural landscapes in the world, among the greatest draws to the continent’s distinguished natural beauty are its beaches. Splayed along the Pacific, Atlantic, and Carribean coastlines, the most recognizable South American beaches are in Brazil, Colombia, and the like. The coastlines of Argentina don’t typically make the list of the best beaches on the continent, and most travelers certainly don’t think of Patagonia as a place to bask in the su...

Barcelona legend Rivaldo claims Messi already deserves 6th Ballon d’Or

Will Messi win his 6th Ballon d’Or this year? Barcelona legend Rivaldo has claimed that Lionel Messi deserves to win his 6th Ballon d’Or this year even if he doesn’t win the Champions League. It’s certainly been an impressive year from the little Argentine. Messi has shown his usual incredible goalscoring form, scoring 45 goals, but has had even more of an influence in the middle of the park this season. He has also shown why he is one of, if not the best free-kick taker in football right now. ...

Riding with the gauchos of Argentina: a photo essay

Greg Funnell and Amanda Barnes ride, swim and drink mate tea with some of Argentina’s most skilled horsemen, travelling from the north-eastern wetlands to the faded gaucho heartlands of La Pampa and Patagonia The water reaches up to my knees as a large lump rises to my throat. I clench my inner thighs tighter around the firm body of my horse and look hesitantly up at Omar in the canoe ahead. “Let go and float like a crocodile,” he instructs over the heavy grunts of the horses and the tumultuous ...

$9.2 billion Zoom's second most powerful shareholder thinks CEO Eric Yuan is like Steve Jobs, but nicer (ZM)

The second most powerful investor is Emergence Capital Partners, a venture capital firm that once backed Salesforce and Box.

Tips for traveling with young kids

Being hesitant to travel with young kids is understandable. Maybe you’ve experienced a toddler screaming for the entirety of a coast-to-coast flight. Worse, maybe that was your toddler. But saying your kids are too young to travel is a slippery slope. When will you know when they’re old enough? The fact is, the sooner you start taking trips with your kids, the sooner they’ll adapt to journeying. And the sooner they — and you — will reap the benefits of that travel. Here’s why you should trave...

The Felderhof House in Italy is built into the ground and topped with a green roof

In the Eisack Valley of Italy, an old “pair farmstead” structure partly built into the hillside years ago still remains. The new owner decided to turn this classic property into a proper home after living inside it for two years as it was, and chose Pavol Mikolajcak Architekten for the redesign. The partially underground extension is topped by a grassy green roof that serves as an homage to the old design as well as a minimal approach to interacting with the natural environment. A newer buildi...

Messi criticism in Argentina unfair, says Simeone

Lionel Messi being criticised for his failure to deliver a major title for Argentina is unfair, says Diego Simeone. Messi could not inspire Argentina to success at last year's World Cup, having to drag his side through the group stage before exiting to eventual winners France in the round of 16. The Argentina captain then took a sabbatical from international duty but was criticised for missing a friendly against Morocco after making his return in a defeat to Venezuela last month.

What Makes Italian Passion Unique

Passion can bloom anywhere. Think of France, with its culinary cathedrals; Spain, with its torrid bullfights; Argentina, with its sultry tango. How is la passione italiana different? “First of all, Italian passion is always personal,” says Marco Spagnoli, a prizewinning film director and critic as well as an astute cultural observer. The goal can be grand or modest—a multimedia spectacular or a family video, a new restaurant or a perfect re-creation of a great-grandmother’s lasagne. Its signifi...

Jorge Luis Borges Draws a Self-Portrait After Going Blind

Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986), one of the great writers to come out of Argentina, went blind when he was  only 55 years old. As unsettling as it must have been, it wasn't particularly a surprise. He once told The New York Times, "I knew I would go blind, because my father, my paternal grandmother, my great-grandfather, they had all gone blind." In the years following that life-changing moment, Borges never learned braille and could no longer read. But he did continue to write; he served as the ...

Within eight months, HMS Exeter would be sunk by the Japanese at the Battle of the Java Sea.Just before he put the gun to his head and pulled the trigger, the German officer penned a final note."For a captain with a sense of honor, it goes without saying t...
