Nipple Shields, Weihnachtsschmuck, kleine Fische und Selbstmord

Viktorianische Nipple Shields: “For ladies nursing – By wearing the Wansbrough shields in ordinary use whilst nipples are healthy they screen from all external sources of irritation. They are easy to wear, holding on like limpets. Sore nipples heal whilst reposing in the bath of milk secreted within the shields, which give at the same time both comfort and protection.“ http://phisick.com/item/lead-nipple-shields-dr-wansbroughs/

Weihnachtsschmuck in roten Fabriken „Wei and his father spend 10 hours in this factory every day producing plastic snowflakes for about 3,000 RMB per month. Red powder used as coloring hovers in the air, and the two go through about 10 face masks a day trying not to breathe it in.“ http://shanghaiist.com/2014/12/09/yiwu-red-factories-world-christmas-decor-made.php

Kleine Fische, Dürre, Wasserpumpen, tausende tote Mandelbäume, 17.000 Arbeitslose. Das Wasser wird knapp. Wer entscheidet, wie es aufgeteilt wird? In Kalifornien. „Understand she isn’t looking for an answer. Then think about extinction. Think about gone forever. Think about Bob Dylan, his question for Angelina: When you cease to exist, then who will you blame? Eat your tuna melt. Pick through the garden salad, and now think about hunger, about men living between plywood walls, beside sluggish, dirty water.“ http://www.themorningnews.org/article/of-fish-and-farmers

Selbstmord und kann die Frage „Wollte sie wirklich sterben?“ beantwortet werden? „I find myself, the suicidal subject, irretrievably tangled in this dualism of self: both attempted killer and her would-be victim. I designate the former as unwell and monstrous, an Edward Hyde of my own making, my own being. Petrified that she might strike again, I try to obliterate her, first with medication, more sleep, and appointments in a psychiatrist’s office twelve floors above Union Square. The view from the window captures every Manhattan skyline landmark, like a snow globe.“ http://thenewinquiry.com/essays/of-suicide/
