Works hanging in private collections Australia wide, USA, Singapore, United Kingdom, China and Hong Kong. The faces and minds of Steve Salo by Dalia Maini June 7, 2014 Steve Salo is Australiano. Define it only a painter would be an understatement, as his works require an emotional performance that leads him almost in a trance. Salo expresses his portraits all that is located under the front of corporal pain, chaos and the psyche of human nature. The aim of his work is to want to show the complexity absolute man.

Under heavy pressure to excel, significant numbers of European university students are using cognitive enhancers, so-called smart drugs, to keep up with academic demands, recent studies show.
A lack of long-term research makes it difficult to gauge whether the use of such stimulants, with the aim of improving concentration and memory, is on the rise — and if so, to what degree — says Boris Quednow, an assistant professor and psychologist at the Psychiatric Hospital of the University of Zurich.
Substances used, the study found, included alcohol, the most commonly reported, by 5.6 percent of respondents; methylphenidate — sold under several trade names, including Ritalin — reported by 4.1 percent; sedatives (2.7 percent); beta blockers (1.2 percent); cannabis (2.5 percent); amphetamines (0.4 percent), and cocaine (0.2 percent).
