Personal Sovereignty leads to Exceptionalism

It’s not the flag, it’s what it represents. It’s not the national anthem, it’s what it represents. It’s not the country, it’s what it represents. It’s not you, it’s what you represent. Arrogance is nothing else than proudness of one’s insufficiencies. An arrogant individual is one who clings to things that do not exist or that ceased to exist. The opposite of an arrogant individual is someone who seeks ...Read full article...

La violencia como señal de rebelión social

Mitologizando y romantizando actos de violencia contra opositores políticos o ideológicos, algo que a menudo hacen los medios de comunicación y expertos, ayuda a las multitudes a asumir identidades colectivas que, aunque son populares, no son virtuosas, pero que cumplen su propósito de “justificar” la comisión de actos atroces. Un ejemplo de ello es Antifa en los Estados Unidos, pero los movimientos sociales se usan más efectivamente como herramientas ...Read full article...

Internet of Things: The organic version

Imagine a bacterium or group of bacteria transmitting a text message to another group and this second group taking it to different places in your body.

New York is exporting poverty to your community and Di Blasio didn’t tell you

$ 89 million of tax money is spent to send individuals and families to other states. Bill de Blasio promised to end the inequality that split the city between poor and rich.

Almost six years later, the Democrat is criticized by other mayors for a ...Read full article...

Pasivos no financiados –pensiones y seguro social- son una amenaza más grave que el cambio climático

¿Dónde está el fondo que contiene el dinero destinado a pensiones y seguridad social? ¿Qué caja de seguridad bancaria contiene todo el efectivo que ingresa en las reservas de los fondos de pensiones o de seguridad social para garantizar la atención medica adecuada? Estamos al borde de una lucha intergeneracional debido a la miopía política y la complicidad de la población, que votó por esa miopía desde que se ...Read full article...

Get to know your children’s brains so you can educate them better

Knowing a child’s brain is imperative for parents to educate them properly. The brain is the control tower of our body. It is responsible for receiving information through the five senses -sometimes six-, carrying out processes consciously or unconsciously, performing according to the results of those processes and, subsequently, issuing a behavior, which may be conscious or more unconscious. Everything that happens in the body goes through the brain, ...Read full article...

Latin America poverty linked to high levels of corruption

Imagine you have a million dollars to spare and you want to invest the money in a developing country. What’s the first aspect you look at before investing? Apparently, foreign capital looks at corruption levels first. For developing or third world nations, it is difficult to attract foreign or even local investment if conditions do not allow for investors to feel safe about whether their cash will ever make ...Read full article...

Meet the wealthy, famous polluters

The wealthiest people on the planet earn more and pollute more. Isn’t it tempting to believe millionaires when they tell you they, more than anyone else, care about the environment? Isn’t impossible to not believe their claims about saving the planet when they donate so much money to ‘favour the poor’? In practice, all of that sounds noble, but when posing a magnifying glass over these and other claims, ...Read full article...

Malnutrition: The epidemic of the century

Ironically, obesity has a lot to do with things that cannot be reduced to excess fat in the body. The accumulation of fat goes beyond appearance.

We may be used to seeing people in Africa, ...Read full article...

Space mining: The next big resource-rich prize are asteroids

Support Organic Farming: Eat locally grown foods

When you talk about eating organic, it is not about eating less meat or not being able to eat what we love. It is about eating what is available in local businesses and markets, which has not traveled hundreds or thousands of miles to reach our tables. Basically, eating organic is about being self-sufficient at the family, community and country level, rather than importing fruits, vegetables and, grains, for ...Read full article...

Mobile devices keep your private data, even after deleting it

Deleting files and history is not enough to maintain privacy. At least 100 mobile devices are an open window on user privacy. Files that are saved or passwords that are entered on multiple device platforms seem to have eternal life if the system is not restored or deleted properly. The National Association on the Destruction of Information of the United States (NAID) has analyzed the contents of 250 devices, ...Read full article...
