MAPS is on the story's list of resources. Definitely a good one. I have an interview scheduled with Mark Kleiman from NYU and will ask those questions. )

Microdosing is really interesting but from what I understand it's purpose is to promote creativity, focus etc rather than directly dealing with mental health issues like clinical depression. There's a bunch of anecdotal evidence that suggests it works, although very little scientific research. The Beckley Foundation is currently undertaking a proper study into microdosing, and its results should be really interesting to read. )

  1. George —
    I’d like to keep up with the U.S./N. Korea story. What angle do you suggest? WikiTribune is doing a good job of informing about new events. I’m thinking about a deeper look at the recent history, maybe a more detailed story about one or two of the collapsed efforts. What do you think? What are your needs?
    -Steve Merican

    1. Hey Steve, great to hear from you. Let me have a think about your proposal over the weekend and get back to you next week. In the meantime, I think it’d probably be best to try to focus on how to carry this story forward. My impression is that much ink has already been spilled over why talks failed in the past.

      One potential angle for you to sink your teeth into could be to talk to talk to a few experts (academics, analysts, etc) and see what some of the key negotiating points might be for U.S., DPRK, and maybe even SKorea — for each party: what’s non-negotiable, what is, what the conditions might be, what sort of solution timeframe are we looking at (months, years, etc).

      In the event the Trump-Kim summit takes place, it would also be interesting to to find out who their key advisers on the topic are and what they’ve said in the past.

      What do you think?

  2. Hello George, I’m Renato from Brazil, and I’ll try to help you with your story about Lula and the elections here. But I’m also a translator, so if you need anything, just contact me.

    1. Fantastic, I probably will need someone to translate moving forward. For the moment, would you mind writing down in the story I shared with you some of the questions you have about the upcoming election, as well as story ideas if you have any? Thanks!

  3. It was good to meet you last night. Very impressed with the project so far, and wish you every success with this venture…

    1. Hey Jeff, was great to meet you too. Thanks for coming in!

    1. ¡Hola! Ya tengo mi parte de la traducción. =)

      1. Muchísimas, muchísimas gracias. Me la envías a [email protected] por favor?

  5. Hello, I am a Spanish collaborator and would like to start writing about topics related to Spain. Any suggestions are welcome.
