Dear modern vultures, also known as human beings,

I wish I could say “I hope you are well”, but your happiness usually means that you are treating me poorly — so I will go fast into the real business.

I have seen the fishing vessels from all over the world coming to importunate my symbiotic relationship with the marine animals. These animals that I decided to welcome home, and call family. And by the way, your vessels tend to be too heavy — especially with all the overfished member of my family you store in the boats! If you are…


My granddaughter came for a visit. I was so thrilled to see her. It has been some months since I last saw her. She does not live close by, so it is tricky for her to come often to chat. Unfortunately, I cannot move to places as easily as beforehand to visit her. She is a grown-up now. Owner of her life, following her dreams and aspirations, slightly trapped into the Capitalist system but still taking the best out of it — if you have to make money, at least spend it on memorable experiences, as I have always told…


Machine Learning. Artificial Intelligence. Data protection. The Age of Data. Probably all terms that keep coming across everyone´s news feeds, work environment, conferences, research studies and many other domains of our lives — even love life can get influenced through the algorithms of the several dating applications available in the market. Data and quantitative methods have been applied and essential for centuries in the most diverse core fields of Science. But, these days, its importance jumped into our daily lives and many businesses, being far from being “merely” a Science discipline or Science little helper.

Indeed, data became a hot…


I got into the room with another three people. I had an appointment at 4 pm, and the clock marked a solid 3.55 pm. I made it on time. I thought there is only one professional working, besides the receptionist. Therefore, I found it weird that we all got in at the same time, but I took my seat and waited. There was something different in the room since the last time I went. The receptionist was still the same, the furniture set up was also the same but, there was a colourful yellow wall to contrast with the remaining…


I am 28 years old. Perhaps when you read this, I will be 100 years old, death and cremated somewhere in the world but well. A little dramatic touch for a non-dramatic story, because we all need a bit of drama in our lives, right? No, it is most certainly wrong. It is 2020, the year we got a pandemic called Corona. A year of changes for so many of us, I included. For a while, I had been slightly unsatisfied with my job. I have been working as Account Manager (or some other fancy similar names as my Resume…


Tear dropping from the sky. Raindrop meets the ground, footstep into the pond. Another drop, another splash on the floor. She runs as fast as possible, but the faster she runs, the more it pours rain. No shelter in sight, just branches of trees on the floor, green lust vegetation and trees that could not protect her in the forest. The thunders start to buzz. The lightning brights the sky. She runs fast, attentively looking around for a place to hide from the storm. She runs into the lust green. But she can barely see her surroundings as the rain…


Running is something I used to say I hate until I found out I love it. I played football for years, I played volleyball, I have tried a bunch of sports since I am a teenager, I have been attending the gym regularly (or not). All the sports have and had something in common — high level of cardio, a lot of running involved. But for a long time, I used to say “I hate running”. Running was always a way to get to something called a “real sport”. Like, you have to move your legs to reach a ball…


From all the challenges flying around on the interweb, I decided to go for one that actually might help me keep my sanity — assuming I haven´t lost it long ago, which is a bold and slightly cocky assumption. Given that I was going to travel for a few months through Latin America and had to interrupt my trip due to Covid19 — that´s right if the title quarantine was not self-explanatory, this post is obviously about the covid19 pandemic. I assume there is no surprise here, do we even talk about other topics these days? — I decided to…


I love airports. I feel it´s one of the few places in the world, maybe even The place in the world, that one can see the most diverse emotions. The anxious emigrant counting the seconds to see the family once again; the adventurous backpacker willing to explore the unknown world; the bored businessman going to that one work trip he was not truly willing to attend; romantic couples going to a trip together to celebrate love; excited friends going to a majestic trip somewhere in the tropics; loud kids and impatient parents spreading chaos while waiting for the airplane to…
