Coronavirus en Costa Rica: La Crisis Permanente

Supongamos que los eventos de los últimos cinco meses no son aleatorios ni inesperados. Digamos que son parte de un ingenioso plan para transformar una República Democrática en un estado policial cerrado controlado por las élites criminales y sus gobernantes títeres. Y digamos que el papel de los medios es avivar las llamas de la histeria masiva, como lo hacen Canal 7, Canal 8, La Nación y otros, al ...Read full article...

Left Marxist ideology massively infecting modern politics

Marxism is more alive than anyone can even imagine and, as usual, it comes wrapped around names such as “equality”, “equity” and “justice”. This new form of 21st century Marxism is more violent and more dangerous than ever before. This engineered form of nouveau-marxism tolerates no dissent, no opposition, and no discussion. If you oppose it, you are shamed, if you disagree you are accused of all hell under ...Read full article...

George Orwell couldn’t have dreamed it better

Problem, reaction, solution is now a well-known expression to describe a situation when government officials, corporations or individuals cause havoc or let it happen in order to bring about a plan they want to implement. Coronavirus seems to be another example of a case where negligence, disinformation and pseudoscience are used to call for and install states of affairs that would not otherwise be acceptable to anyone. National governments ...Read full article...

The Covid-19 Paradox: Simulation or Reality?

The new decade in which we live seems to be moving towards a disastrous social and technological future. The questions that more and more people ask themselves are if life is real or if it is a simulation, and if there is a way to distinguish fact from fiction. A paradox is a statement or proposition that, despite sounding reasonable, because it is based on acceptable premises, actually leads ...Read full article...

The challenge of teaching online in times of Coronavirus

The quarantine caused by the coronavirus shows some digital deficiencies in the educational system, especially in rural areas. In some places, however, the available resources and the hard work of teachers and students have made things a bit easier. Coronavirus has completely disrupted the traditional learning process, not only because of the suspension of classes but also because teachers and students have had to think about learning in a ...Read full article...

‘Deprogram’ yourself to repair what makes you suffer

Neuroscience is unveiling secretive brain tricks, but it is also spreading some ideas that cause confusion. For example, Eric Kandel, Nobel Prize in Medicine, has claimed that “the brain builds our sensory experience, our thoughts and emotions, and it controls our actions”. It is easy to interpret this type of statement in a way that we relegate the human being to a species of a biological robot, without being ...Read full article...

Are you eating, drinking and breathing plastics?

A report by the Australian University of Newcastle for WWF says that you put about 5 grams of plastic in your body every week, which is the same as swallowing a credit card or a bottle cap. Whether you eat five meals a day or do intermittent fasting, eat carbohydrates or follow a ketogenic diet, microplastics are everywhere. In one week we can swallow 1,769 grams of plastic with ...Read full article...

Is it a problem to be a perfectionist?

It is not necessarily a sin to want to make everything perfect, according to our filters. The problem is not knowing how to get it done without getting stressed out or anxious. Setting high goals is good; the most difficult aspirations bring some of the best triumphs. The emotions that accompany achievement often include joy, pride and satisfaction. But when effort, diligence and meticulousness do not end up in ...Read full article...

Why are parents not able to educate anymore?

Mothers and fathers don’t seem to be academically or psychologically prepared to educate. Parents were good educators in the twentieth century, especially at the beginning, when they had a single priority: that their children would survive without starving. Having overcome hunger, parents of those born in the late seventies and eighties added a new priority: training children and provide them with the opportunity to have a job that would ...Read full article...

Google takes voice recognition to public places

Google is investing a lot in conversation design. Last year, the company published a manual of good practices so that it could be applied to the development of this technology. In the company, it is believed that they are producing another potential interface. They do not say that voice will be the only thing, but it will be an important tool. When you use Google Assistant you can see ...Read full article...

Violence as a sign of Social Rebellion

Mythologizing and romanticizing acts of violence against political or ideological opponents –something that is often done by the media and pundits– helps crowds assume collective identities that while being popular, are not virtuous, but that serve their purpose to commit heinous acts. A case in point is Antifa in the United States, but social movements are more effectively used as tools for violence in Latin America. Recently, the federal ...Read full article...

Are you addicted to your mobile phone?

If you detect these four things in your mobile use habits, you probably are addicted to it. Adopting new habits is a really simple endeavour. Creating new positive habits to live by is noticeably more difficult, however, adopting new negative habits is very easy. The hard part is to get rid of them. That black crystal is calling you. Maybe it has something to tell you, maybe it just ...Read full article...

The Benefits of Climate Change

Do you remember Al Gore? He was not the first prophet of the alleged imminent environmental disaster. The first was James Hansen of NASA’s Goddard Space Center. Like Gore, Hansen sounded the alarms of anthropogenic climate change in 2003. During an interview, I asked him if he could rule out that uncontrollable forces, such as solar cycles, were more influential in climate change than human activity. His answer was ...Read full article...

Most oxygen comes from oceans, not forests

The abundance of animal life in the ocean has provided an enormous variety of services from the beginning of time. From food to adventure and leisure. None of this would be possible without the unicellular organisms of phytoplankton, which float by the thousands in each drop of water in the upper layers of the sea. The phytoplankton comprises two main groups: photosynthetic cyanobacteria and unicellular algae that move near ...Read full article...

Where did the real intellectuals go?

Real intellectuals on mainstream media suffered the same luck as real social democracy: they simply disappeared. The end of the real intellectual class has been clucking for about 40 years and no real intellectual seems to be willing to stand up and show his or her head. In spite of everything, the term survives, but devoid of the aura that used to accompany it. Mainstream media do with the name ...Read full article...
