What happens when you don't have access to information? No information? Rarely as human beings are story tellers. What you get is rumors, false information, that often spreads faster than true information, and are hard to challenge.

Being multilingual is key in today's global world and can become a competitive advantage. Yet language instruction is not always very efficient in schools, and even after several years of classes, many students can still not speak a foreign language.

What defines home? a sense of home? is it a location or "something" (material or not) we take with us?

Rumors are about false facts but they are powerful and they usually spread fast. Is there a way we could learn about the mechanisms to spread information about unlawful detention?

Anne-Laure commented on Low-cost quick production and design of face shields

Hi Arjan Tupan nice reading you! I hope all is well.
In the examples shared, it was more faculty, staff or start up hosted in NYU incubators than students (who can't be on campus) although a few of them helped with some of the design.
In any case, I agree I found the collaboration and open source element inspiring.

Anne-Laure commented on How to connect with family members abroad

Thank you Luisa Fernanda  I hope your mother is doing fine. I have a similar approach of using multiple sources of information in an effort to triangulate. I feel like you regarding the flow and pace of information. Another issue I am faced with is about how to make sense of the information I'm reading. I tried to listen to multiple points of view but sometime I am not sure how to make sense of it. For example try to understand different national approaches including countries which don't embrace full confinement. I do follow the rules and stay at home but I want to keep asking questions and wonder why the difference (this might just be my personal stance).
