Escuelas libres, rurales y activas: una realidad pese a las trabas de la administración
Cada vez más familias tratan de esquivar el sistema tradicional de enseñanza y buscan alternativas en escuelas “niñocéntricas” que ponen el pensamiento crítico por delante de los exámenes. El directorio ludus.org, que en 2013 registraba 40 proyectos, hoy contiene 800.

"¡Nuestra escuela es todo el pueblo!”, exclama Miguel, acompañante del colectivo Wayra, un proyecto ubicado en Jubgado (Salamanca). Para describir un día en Wayra, primero hay que decir que la hora de entrada no existe. También hay que decir que no hay profesores, sino acompañantes. Y lo último que se debe saber es que no hay temario y cada día es una aventura diferente.

“La clase comienza cuando estamos todas”, asegura Miguel. “El grupo grande llega a la escuela con los dos acompañantes que somos Pablo y yo”, cuenta. Mientras llega el resto, los niños y niñas dibujan o juegan al ajedrez en un ambiente tranquilo y los acompañantes cortan fruta o rellenan el calendario. “Luego llega escalonadamente el resto de la tropa, algunos acompañados por sus padres y madres”, explica Miguel. Y es entonces cuando arranca el día. El Ayuntamiento ha cedido sus instalaciones municipales al proyecto, así que los niños y niñas deciden si quieren ir a la biblioteca, al salón de actos, al polideportivo o prefieren quedarse en una piedra o junto al río. “A lo largo de la mañana nos vamos dispersando en grupitos de peques y adultos pero siempre metemos una propuesta organizada al día. Hoy por ejemplo hemos hecho pigmentos naturales con carbón y hemos ido a una cueva a hacer pinturas rupestres porque estamos hablando mucho del paleolítico”, cuenta el acompañante de Wayra.

Rügen was not Christian at this time. It was conquered by the danish and germans at 1168. Before it was Slavic. And until the migration period (Germans --> Rom) it was Germanic. But most of them left Rügen to the south.

Back to the topic, the treasure. The Slavic were very successful pirates. That might be the reason why the Danish treasures were found on both Islands Hiddensee and Rügen. The pirates might have taken them away from the Danish. My guess.

Un pianoforte su Marte (Alessandro D'Avenia)

Perciò do ai miei alunni i «compiti di silenzio»: 10-15 minuti di quiete, lontani da qualsiasi oggetto, disponibili a sentire tutte le voci che sussurrano o urlano dentro, per soffermarsi sulla più autentica. Per noi e per chi ci è accanto dovremmo trovare momenti di pianoforte su Marte, in cui, in mezzo a paure mute e incombenze urlate, poter lasciare risuonare le domande nascoste nella stanza più interna del cuore, il cuore del cuore, come Amleto chiama il luogo in cui accogliamo solo gli amici veri.

Quando il tempo vola, in realtà non ha fatto altro che aprirsi alla vita che non muore, alla vita indistruttibilmente viva. È aver trovato il Graal dell’esistenza.

Acne and Nutrition: A Systematic Review (2017)

Alimentazione e quello che sta intorno
  
Acne vulgaris is the most common dermatologic condition in the USA, affecting more than 17 million Americans of all ages, although it is especially common in adolescents.1 Moreover, approximately 80–90% of American adolescents experience acne.2

There are polarizing, often speculative, opinions concerning the efficacy or non-efficacy of diets and foods as part of the treatment of diseases, especially in dermatology. This study systematically assessed the available scientific literature with respect to the influence of food, using acne as an example.

La monarquía del rey Midas: los estragos de la quinoa
El cultivo excesivo de quinoa, el ‘superalimento’ de moda en occidente, ha originado graves crisis agrarias en países productores como Bolivia o Perú.


Los estragos de la quinoa, el ‘superalimento’ de moda

Bild/Foto

Para un occidental sería embarazoso identificar la planta de la quinoa. De aspecto similar a la lavanda, recia como el trigo castellano, sus cogollos van modificando su tonalidad en función del ciclo vital: el verde de sus inicios deja paso al anaranjado para tornarse después rojo intenso y finalmente lila, casi nazareno.

Pese a que es uno de los pilares alimenticios de la población andina (bolivianos, peruanos, ecuatorianos y chilenos) desde hace más de cinco mil años, hubo que esperar a la década de los setenta de pasado siglo para que se comenzase a exportar, dirigida a consumidores vegetarianos de los países occidentales. Por entonces, era casi un capricho. Hoy es día es una moda. La quinoa ya no sólo se adquiere en herbolarios o tiendas especializadas, sino que se encuentra en las grandes superficies. Es una tendencia alimentaria en alza en los países ricos, por decirlo en términos de mercado. En España se consumen 175 toneladas de quinoa al año, según datos de la Agencia Española de Consumo, Seguridad Alimentaria y Nutrición. No en vano, se la conoce como el ‘grano de oro’ o ‘superalimento’, debido a que contiene muchas más proteínas y grasas que los cereales y a que posee un gran contenido de fibra y mineral (potasio, magnesio, calcio, fósforo, hierro y zinc).

Fifty shades of open (by Jeffrey Pomerantz and Robin Peek, 2016)

Abstract
Open source. Open access. Open society. Open knowledge. Open government. Even open food. The word “open” has been applied to a wide variety of words to create new terms, some of which make sense, and some not so much. This essay disambiguates the many meanings of the word “open” as it is used in a wide range of contexts.

I will be simplistic in what I say, but solutions would be simple. Saying it in the words of Michael Pollan:


  • Don't eat anything that your great-grandmother wouldn't recognise as food
  • Avoid food products that make health claims
  • Get out of the supermarket
  • Eat mostly plants, especially leaves
  • Eat wild foods when you can
  • Don't look for the magic bullet in the traditional diet
  • Eat less
  • Eat meals
  • Do all your eating at a table
  • Try not to eat alone
  • Cook - and, if you can, plant a garden


Consumption of ultra-processed foods and cancer risk: results from NutriNet-Santé prospective cohort
BMJ 2018; 360 doi: https://doi.org/10.1136/bmj.k322 (Published 14 February 2018)

What is already known on this topic

    Ultra-processed foods are often characterised by lower nutritional quality and the presence of additives, substances from packaging in contact with food, and compounds formed during production, processing, and storage

    A few studies have observed ultra-processed food intake to be associated with a higher incidence of dyslipidaemia in Brazilian children and higher risks of overweight, obesity, and hypertension in Spanish university students

    Although epidemiological data relating to cancer risk are lacking, mechanistic studies suggest potential carcinogenic effects of several components commonly found in ultra-processed foods

What this study adds

    This study assessed the associations between ultra-processed food consumption and risk of cancer in a large prospective cohort

    A 10% increase in the proportion of ultra-processed foods in the diet was associated with a significant increase of more than 10% in the risks of overall and breast cancer

    If confirmed in other populations and settings, these results suggest that the rapidly increasing consumption of ultra-processed foods may drive an increasing burden of cancer in the next decades

The road to Alzheimer’s disease is lined with processed foods

Dementia haunts the United States. There’s no one without a personal story about how dementia has touched someone they care for. But beyond personal stories, the broader narrative is staggering: By 2050, we are on track to have almost 15 million Alzheimer’s patients in the US alone. That’s roughly the population of NYC, Los Angeles, and Chicago combined. Now add a few more cities to take care of them.

It’s an epidemic that’s already underway—but we don’t recognize it as such. The popular conception of Alzheimer’s is as an inevitable outcome of aging, bad genes, or both.

From a scientist’s perspective, it’s important to remind everyone that we all once believed the same thing about cancer. But just a few days ago, doctors around the world have been considerably shaken up by the breaking news linking cancer to processed foods. In a large-scale study, researchers found that a 10% increase in consumption of ultra-processed foods led to a 12% increase in overall cancer events.

At the Alzheimer’s Prevention Clinic at Weill Cornell Medical, this latest cancer research had our full attention. The findings line up so closely with research in the field, including our own work, linking diet and risk of Alzheimer’s—and underscore how important lifestyle changes can be to delaying or even avoiding the onset of the disease.

It’s about a Bal. A big Bal, in the countryside, in France.
In the summer, in Auvergne, come rain or shine - or mud or wind -, we dance and dance some more, for 7 days and 8 nights, backed up by musicians, on 7 floors, in the middle of a field.

If Calcium Supplements Aren’t Safe, What About Calcium in Food? (2018, Michael Greger)

Bild/FotoTomb submerged in a travertine pool in Pamukkale

Okay, but why do calcium supplements increase heart attack risk, but the calcium you get in your diet doesn’t? Perhaps because when you take calcium pills, you get a spike of calcium in your bloodstream that you don’t get from just eating calcium-rich foods. Within hours of taking supplemental calcium, the calcium levels in the blood shoot up and can stay up for as long as eight hours. This evidently produces what’s called a hypercoagulable state. That is, your blood clots more easily, which could increase the risk of clots in the heart or brain. Indeed, higher calcium blood levels are tied to higher heart attack and stroke rates. So, the mechanism may be that calcium supplements lead to unnaturally large, rapid, and sustained calcium levels in the blood, which can have a variety of potentially problematic effects.

The Music Garden

DVD Volume 1 - Suite #1- The Music Garden, directed by Kevin McMahon. After explaining how the first Cello Suite always conjures up images of nature, Yo-Yo Ma recruits architect Julie Moir Messervy to help him try and design a garden based on the suite. The Music Garden is pitched to Boston City Hall, showing interest in the project for City Hall Plaza as a way to beautifully meet the demands for security. But the demands the film places on the completion of the project turn out to unreasonable for Boston and they pull out of the project. The city of Toronto expresses interest in the project once Boston steps out and over the remainder of the film work Yo-Yo and Julie to get the project to the point where actual construction of the Garden can begin.[1]

DVD Volume 2 - Suite #3- Falling Down Stairs, directed by Barbara Willis Sweete. Yo-Yo Ma collaborates with Mark Morris to create a dance for the Third Suite. The film opens with Morris expressing reservation about interpreting the work as choreographer, which he feels is less than the interpretation of a musical performer like Yo-Yo. Yo-Yo assure Morris that his interpretation is valid. Over the course the film Morris works with his troupe and then with Yo-Yo to create a dance. The title, as Morris explains, comes from a dream he had where he saw one of his dancers falling down a flight of stairs in time with the opening scale of the Suite.
