Here is the latest playlist and a cool collection of special bullets I managed to assemble this week. Ever since my toddler was born, time seems to be flying by. Are days shorter now? When I can carve out an hour to sit down at the computer and type, it feels like a mini vacation.
- Has it ever occurred to you how the Scientific Method came into existence? The ancient world teemed with masters and their great disciples: Confucius and Mencius, Moses and Joshua and the prophets, Jesus and Paul of Tarsus, the Buddha, Kaundinya, and Anaximander who was the first thinker able to conceive and put into practice what is now the fundamental methodological credo of modern science. Read this short excerpt from Anaximander: And the Birth of Science by Carlo Rovelli (Italian theoretical physicist and writer).
- President Biden, in his State of the Union address this month, spoke of “jobs paying an average of $130,000 a year, and many do not require a college degree.” There are plenty of available high-paying jobs that don’t need a college degree and a mountain of debt. More on this by Jon Marcus from NPR.
- This is a fun cooking tool. Enter whatever you have on the fridge, pantry, freezer, and voilá. The app will give you recipes for every ingredient you add unlocks more recipes.
- The ego has many layers and is often misunderstood. Some people struggle with it more than others and that’s ok, it is part of being human. I came across an article this week that talks about the practice of doing ego work, a powerful tool for the healing journey of some.
- 11 of the Most Remote Homes in the World. From the “Loneliest House in the World” to the smallest inhabited island, these homes are as beautiful as they are secluded.
- Farmer and writer, Wendell Berry, on persistence:”To a river, as to any natural force, an obstruction is merely an opportunity. For the river’s nature is to flow; it is not just spatial in dimension, but temporal as well. All things must yield to the impulse of the water in time, if not today then tomorrow or in a thousand years. If its way is obstructed then it goes around the obstruction or under it or over it and, flowing past it, wears it away. Men may dam it and say that they have made a lake, but it will still be a river. It will keep its nature and bide its time, like a caged wild animal alert for the slightest opening. In time it will have its way; the dam like the ancient cliffs will be carried away piecemeal in the currents.” – Source: The Unforeseen Wilderness

- “Suegra y nuera, perro y gato, no comen en el mismo plato”. Sobre el imaginario de la suegra, desde una mirada feminista. Dicha competencia no resulta nada nuevo, de hecho, el patriarcado nos ha socializado a las mujeres en una eterna competencia, que se empeña en vernos como rivales, en lugar de compañeras y aliadas. La sororidad te la debo. Por si fuera poco, esta competencia femenina –no feminista y valga la aclaración– se da únicamente en la dinámica suegra-nuera, pero no suegro-yerno, por ejemplo.
