Pito pito, gorgorito....

Tralaría, tralará.

Pito pito, gorgorio, dónde vas tú tan Bonito.

Pim, pam, pum... Fuera?

This weekend is gonna be hard. I have to make a decission..... I´ll make it and, in less than 5 minutes, I´ll change my mind and, in less than 5 minutes, I´ll change my mind again and, in less than 5 minutes, I´ll think back and make a decission totally diferent and, in less than 5 minutes........

I´m pretty sure som
efriends of mine will say "You are stupid.. And if you don´t take that oppportunity I cut your head -to say the least-"

The funny thing is that at the end, I will make my decission 5 minutes before the dead line. As usual.

I´ve just arrive..

I´ve just arrived from home. And to be honest, I don´t feel like doing anything. Maybe it´s because is Tuesday, or maybe because I´ve just found out there is something in my live that makes me chew over deep thoughts and that I´m a kind of suspicious person because I tend to be reserved.

Trust in
me. .. Everything it´s true. It´s in my horoscope.

Some friends of mime tell me I usally change my mind 3 or 4 times before I make a decision ... Other friends tell me it´s just on the other way... after making a decission I think back and change my mind.. They all say I´m a kind of capricious.

But you know what? IT´S FALSE. I´m not so capricious and it´s not because I´m a only child.
I´m Geminis and it makes me think over past, present and future issues once and once again. That´s all ;-)))

Some people said our future, our fate is written in the stars. ... But the funny thing is that if you look the sky and see the stars (if you can, in Madrid is almost imposible..) you only see the past. You only see things that happened thousands of years ago...

And all this thoughts lead me to Simon Wisenthalt´s old saying: "Wihtout memory, mankind is condemned to repeat the same mistakes"

"The heat is on"

The Economist is one of my favourite magazines. The point is it´s not just about economy, but about all kind of issues. In September you can find a special report on climate change. A really interesting report.. But, what´s the fuss about?

After reading this report, the conclusion is clear: there is a climate trend but nobody knows for sure what is happening.... No worries, diferent reports offer a wide range of predicted termperature rises, from 1.4º to 5.8º by the end of this century.

But there are some facts that nobody can deny: the relationship between CO2 concentration and the rise of temperatures, the relationship that links Hurricanes and sea-surface temperatures, the changes in the Ocean Stream, glaciars melting and, no doubt about it, the human hand.

Antarctica is one of the main data sources. Scientinsts can look for previous episodes of climate change in the ice core. And it´s a fact that the higher the CO2 concetration, the higher the temperature. Another fact is climate has followed a periodic pattern, but CO2 concetration is higher than never before (more than 300ppm) . And even if you are blind, the pattern is clear... "It´s white and it´s in a bottle".

It´s said that "The nature is wise" and we´ll be able to deal with all these problems. It´s said as well that "we can easily adapt to the environment" But this last quote is tricky. Human being is the only animal that can adapt the environment to suit themselves, the world´s other inhabitants still have to adapt themselves to their environment. And who knows... maybe it´s for this reason that we are not aware about the problem that is on the sly around the corner. And like it or not, if the most pessimistic theory turned out to be real, we could never say that it was out of blue.

I´ve seen into the future

Some days ago, I was listening to the radio and, suddenly I saw the future of the Spanish Education System:

The thing is that France is gonna return to the the old days teaching method because almost 15% of the 12 year old children don´t know either how to write or how to read properly.

In other words, they will re-use the old way: "m" with "a" -> "ma"

As you can see, the teaching revolution -that Spain has copied- has been a mess. And I´m sorry, but I have to blame the psychologist and the likes who decided to change dramatically everything because the old ways were "traumatic for the children". Come on!!!! What the hell is that?!?

TED conference

"Once a year 1000 remakable people gather in Monterrey, California, to exchange something of incalculable value: Their Ideas"

This is the way all Ted´s videos start. Basically, TED is a non-profit foundation that organized and record conferences. But I´n not talking about simple "talks". The goal is to seek out the most interesting people on earth and let then to share and to spread their ideas.

People like Jimmy Wales (founder of wikipedia), Al Gore, Jeff Bezos, Negroponte, Billy Gates, or Nathan Myrrhvold
-Chief Technology Officer at Microsoft speaking about dinosaur sex-, have spoken at TED.

One more point: from www.ted.com you can download any conference for free and everything is legal!!! N
owadays you can´t take this last point for granted ;-)
