Thursday is newspaper day; the morning round: Kidsweek (for Roderick), Financieel Dagblad, NRCnext and Volkskrant. Later today evening paper Parool and weekly paper DenHaagcentraal. And of course digital subscription NewYorkTimes on the Kindle... To make sense of it all I am reading "Value creation and the future of news organizations" by Robert Picard...

On April 26 1986 Disaster struck at nuclear power plant #4 in Chernobyl. The new dawn of communism based on nuclear energy and futuristic cities as Pripyat faded away overnight.
The area ('the exclusion zone') still is, and will be for a long long time, full of radiation and void of people. It is easy to forget these 'incidents', but having been there for a photo masterclass with Antonin Kratochvil at Easter, will make sure I will not forget the past and the lasting problems it has caused for the future.
