Been a lawyer for 8 years, just quit to move to Singapore to do a fulltime MBA. It feels like a worthwhile investment for the future both career wise and $$$. I hope to start my own business or get a good managing position after the degree.

Heard them live in late June this year. They played two of the new songs. Saw them live on the 10.000 Days tour also. It´s a very cool experience to see them live, if you are into music, not just shows. I don´t care for sub par music with pyro and other ... more »

Congrats on the little girl! I see what you mean by race threads. I stay out of them and just watch the replays when I can. Too much stuff in life to be Art Eckman every weekend

Saw them live last night. It was awesome to hear two of the new songs. They were good, very instrumental, so reminded me of a couple of songs from the past two albums. They won’t be the main songs for most on the record though. The festival is called ... more »

Just before, and just after the incidents. I like his his reasoning, especially as it is before it was "decided" that it was Iran`s work

It’s obviously not Iran. One tanker was heading for Japan, while the Japanese PM is in Iran on a peaceful visit which both parties seem to appreciate. Also, Iran doesn’t want a war, they don’t even have an offensive military. My bet: Saudi and Emirates ... more »

So, I normally try to stay anonymous here, but I thought this was too cool to not post. Syrian TV made a news segment about my visit to Palmyra. It is still very much a military area, but I was let in after lots of beaurocratic work from my contact. ... more »

It is in fact preserved by a university from Hungary. The castle is on UNESCOs list, and they should nornally get funding from the UN. But someone decided politics were more important than preserving the oldest standing castle from the crusades. It’s ... more »
