The positive attitude against cancer begins by touching yourself.

 

Much has been written, much has been written and will continue to be written. Cancer is a disease that unfortunately is with us. We all have someone close to us who suffers from it. Today we are talking about Breast Cancer, of which 1.7 million new cases are diagnosed worldwide each year. It is the most common tumor among women – and up to 30 percent of women diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer will eventually develop metastatic disease.

With this data we can get an idea that some of us will develop cancer in our lifetime. What’s scary to think about?

October 12th: multiculturalism that breaks borders.

Many are the readings taken on October 12th. The main reason why this day is important is because Christopher Columbus discovered two continents. It is true that what came later (by the very nature of the human being), were more discoveries, colonizations and several clashes between cultures.

But perhaps what we don’t realize is that we must learn from mistakes. And just as a child learns to walk on the basis of falls, those frontal clashes between cultures of the so-called “new world” made us what we are today.

WITH SCHOLAR ABUSE THERE´S NO PEACE

When we look for the definition of PEACE we usually find it next to a meaning in which its opposite word is mentioned: war. It is customary to define peace as “a time of No War”. In other words, the elderly, the adults, we define peace as all that time in which we are calm, without wars, without arguments, without “meddling” with anyone or that nobody “meddles” with us. That time when we don’t hit or beat each other. We don’t fight, we don’t scream… we’re in peace.

Perseid Meteor Shower with children

On the night of 11 to 12 August the stars fall from the sky. The night of Perseids Meteor Shower is one of the most magic nights in which you can ask for more wishes per minute. The tears of Saint Lawrence (as it is called in Europeans countries as Spain) fall to an average of 150 meteors per hour, so  you have more possibilities to ask for wishes than on any night of the year.

Grandparents 2.0

On Twitter we could read this sentence: “If you could design the future, it would be with more libraries and less Wikipedia, with more grandparents and less social networks”

But is a world drawn with more grandparents and the same social networks so bad?
