soccer tree 01

I'd like to plea for more trees in soccer-stadiums: 1) They add an element of fun to the game; 2) They don't get aggressive easily; 3) Everyone supports green.

Sebastian Errazuriz: A 10-meter high, real magnoilia tree planted in the center of Chile's National Stadium where dictator Pinochet tortured political prisoners 30 years ago. During a whole week [somewhere in 2006, red.] the de-contextualized stadium was open to the public as a park. A cathartic soccer match played before 15.000 people, with the tree in the middle was the closure of the piece.

Should men be able to give birth to children?


Lisa Mandemaker: Using an artificial womb could lead to more equality between sexes, but also between different family layouts. If men would be able to give birth to children, it would maybe be easier for male same-sex couples to have a child together.
