I’ll be reachable all afternoon. (How to contact me)

We returned home last night from a long weekend with family in the mountains of rural western Virginia. It was very rainy (the remnants of Hurricane Delta lingered over us), but the landscape was beautiful.

We had very little internet access, even on mobile phones, so I’ll be spending part of the day catching up on communications. I once again have a lot of writing to do, and need to prepare a lecture for a Colombian audience for Thursday. I will be at my desk all day, with internal meetings all morning and availability in the afternoon.

The day ahead: October 9, 2020

I’m around in the morning. (How to contact me)

I got a lot of writing done yesterday, which is great, though none of it can yet be shared here. Today I’ll be doing website updates (the writing has kept me from even posting news links here since Tuesday). Then I’ll be stopping work mid-day to go spend the weekend camping. I’ll be in the woods for a few days and there probably won’t be updates here.

The day ahead: October 8, 2020

I should be reachable much of the day. (How to contact me)

I’m 3,000 words in, and almost done with a draft report about the border. It’s drawing on numerous sources, which makes it slow going. Once I’ve got a draft out and shared with colleagues, I’ll be at my desk and reachable for the rest of the day, with no commitments on the schedule and a lot of e-mail and website updates to get through.

The day ahead: October 7, 2020

I’m sort of reachable in the morning, and most available in the early afternoon. (How to contact me)

This morning I’m scrambling to finish an article for WOLA’s website. Then I’ve got a cluster of early-afternoon meetings and interviews. Then I’ll spend the rest of the afternoon at my desk, when I’ll be easiest to contact. I expect to be working into the evening today.

Busy day today. I’m talking to a student with a project, having a lunch discussion with WOLA’s interns, participating in a border coalition meeting, and giving a talk about Colombia on a New School panel in the evening. In between, trying to finish a full draft of a piece about the border. My responses to messages may be delayed until tomorrow.

The day ahead: October 5, 2020

I should be reachable for much of the afternoon. (How to contact me)

I made some progress over the weekend writing a short report about the border and human rights, and will continue to do so. Not feeling enormous deadline pressure because the current news frenzy over the presidential diagnosis will distract many readers right now, anyway.

I have a few smaller bits of content that I’d like to move ahead or finish today, also. Quite a long list, actually. So I’ll be working on all of that this afternoon, when I have a schedule largely free of meetings.

Some articles I found interesting this morning

Salles announced an end to two legal protections for mangroves and coastal restinga forests, arguing the protections were “excessively restrictive” and “stifled economic development”

In Brazil, lawmakers are still trying to come to grips with the damage done by Pompeo’s September visit, ostensibly meant to shore up support for a common front against Venezuela but ultimately about Pompeo’s efforts to boost Trump’s standing with Latino voters in Florida

Colombia

The day ahead: October 2, 2020

I’ve got a couple of meetings/calls in the afternoon, but am mostly reachable. (How to contact me)

I’m behind on an article about the border, which I’d hoped to have done by yesterday. However, given this morning’s news about the president’s COVID test, that’s probably fine: anything else published today will be lost in the frenzy.

I’m here, writing, and trying not to check the U.S. news compulsively. Like a lot of you out there, probably.

I’m mostly reachable, with a few meetings scattered throughout the day. (How to contact me)

Getting a late start, as I was up quite late working on a WOLA article about the border. It’s still really just an outline with bits of prose hanging off of it, so there’s hours to go. I’ll keep working on that all day, intermittently, into the evening. I’d like to get the draft off of my desk before the day ends.

My kid has a doctor checkup, and I’m in a border coalition meeting and an interview with a journalist. Otherwise, I’ll be at my desk writing all day.

La Comisión Interamericana de Derechos Humanos (CIDH) observa con preocupación ciertas tendencias que apuntan a restricciones ilegítimas y actos arbitrarios en materia de seguridad ciudadana
