Here's a little girl I met on the streets in a little town in Morocco. They all speak French there, and I know a few French children's poems, so I was able to tell her one of them! When I started telling her, she started singing it back to me... and I learned that the poem also has a song-form — she was cool.

Venda no sedentària?  
Pel que sembla, a nivell legal, de la venda ambulant se'n diu "no sedentària". Suposo que ambulant era massa clar.

Healthy Guts

Human gut microbes that have been associated with disease in our modern industrialised diets may not not be their cause.  It seems that in healthy Hadza people, who have a foraging, pre-farming diet, these same microbes appear in large proportions without problems and conversely bacteria that we consider healthy are absent.

In westerners, Bifidumbacterium is a microbe that many nutrition scientists thought was essential to good gut health, but it is almost completely absent in the foragers. Likewise, high counts of the bacteria Treponema have been linked to maladies like Crohn’s disease and irritable bowel syndrome. Neither of these diseases exist among the Hadza, but their guts contain abundant Treponema.

Modern humans have only spent 5 percent of our history as farmers. Before that, most of our species were foragers of some type or other. ”Studies like this one are rare opportunities for generating hypotheses about the bacteria that are most sensitive to diet and metabolism in the gut,” said David. The Hadza’s stomachs represent a reference ecosystem for comparing our modern lifestyles.

πR²·2R = 4/3πR³ + 1/3·πR² ·2R
El volum d'una esfera, més el d'un con de la mateixa alçada i radi, és igual al volum del cilindre que la circumscriu.
The volume of a sphere plus a that of a cone of the same height and radius is equal to the volume of the cylinder that circumscribes the sphere.

I am sad to report that one of the greatest authors of the 20th century, Gabriel García Márquez, passed away earlier today, at the age of 87.

Jueus a Ucraïna
Jews in Ukraine
Fa setmanes que els mitjans russos fan córrer que el nou govern ucraïnès és antijueu, i que els mateixos jueus ucraïnesos ho neguen. De fet, afirmen que la situació és millor que no pas a Rússia. I cada cop queda més clar.
For some weeks, Russian media have been spreading the word that the best Ukrainian government is antijueu, and the very same Ukrainian Jews deny it. In fact, they say their situation is better than in Russia. And these facts make it more clear.

This is sickening.

Fear replaced communal atmosphere in Donetsk, Ukraine's Jewish community as armed men handed out a leaflet Passover eve calling on Jews register their religion and property with the interim pro-Russian government or face deportation and loss of citizenship.

I think you can be pretty sure that if Abkhasia was recognized by the whole international community and was a member of the UN, no one of them would like to belong to Georgia. However, under the current situation I'm not sure whether Abkhasians feel occupied by Russia of feel grateful to Russia... I think that Russia has not tried to annex Abkhasia (which cannot be said about Georgia) and recognizes its independence (which cannot be said about Georgia), so I suppose they are more grateful than not.  Before 2008 they also had Russian troops but they were not recognized, at least now they are recognized by half a dozen countries, so I guess they are happier now than before 2008....

Tonight, in Verges, Catalonia, the Dansa de la mort, Dance of Death.
 
Dansa de la mort
Dance of Death

If you look for information about dances of Death (or danses macabres) in English, French, Spanish, Italian... everything you'll find will be about middle age dances, no longer existent, or, specially, pictorial representation of those ancient dances. However, if you search in Catalan, you'll find information about real, actual dances. A few recovered ones (Manresa, la Selva del Camp), some lost not so long ago (Rupià, 1935) and at least one which has survived, uninterruptedly, for centuries, the one from Verges.

This kind of dances are supposed to be originated in the middle ages, after plagues that killed millions. Some did represent Death itself, other alive people who may die at any moment. Some had text, some where silent.

In the one from Verges there are five skeletons, two adults, three kids, who dance, and five companions, three adults and two kids. These five are one drummer, who plays the minimalistic rythm, and the other four carry torches

The dancers, who walk in a cross formation are:

* El Capdanser (lit. head dancer): The one in front who carries the typical Death scythe, with the Latin inscription NEMINI PARCO ("I mercy/skip none"). He mostly gives his back to the walking direction.
* L'Abanderat (standard bearer): The one in the middle who carries the standard, where you can read on one side the same Latin NEMINI PARCO and on the other side LO TEMPS ÉS BREU (Catalan for "time is brief/short). He advances looking at the sides.
* Els Platets (lit. little dishes): The two kids (7 or 8 year olds) on the sides who carry a small plate on their left hand with dust and ashes, to remind people what will they become. They advance looking at the sides (both the same side, opposite to that the standard bearer faces).
* El Rellotge (clock): The last kid (9 or 10 year old) on the back, who carries a clock without hands and who points to the dial randomly, to remind pople Death can reach them at any moment. He advances looking at the sides (same the standard bearer faces), so people watching will always face either the clock or the little plates.

This dance happens only during Easter, on the Maundy Thursday (so yesterday night).

Story
Introduction
Informàtic de formació, m'hi vaig dedicar durant gairebé 10 anys. Ara estic en una etapa més centrat en el món dels jocs. Per exemple:
  • He creat jocs (alguns han guanyat premis, un ha estat publicat)
  • He fet conferències, xerrades, exposicions... sobre jocs
  • Faig tallers de jocs variats (aualé, toghızqumalaq, jocs de cordills, jocs tradicionals...)
  • He estat voltant per pobles ensenyant jocs motors tradicionals d'arreu del món
  • Participo en campionats, bàsicament d'aualé i toghızqumalaq (vaig ser al primer campionat del món, al Qazaqstan)
I bé, un altre dia explicaré més coses.
Bragging rights
He aparegut a diaris d'Antigua & Barbuda, Suïssa i el Qazaqstan :-)

Dilluns 3 hi vaig. Em diuen que sí, que per web hi ha ofertes especials, però que amb ells no es depèn de quan vingui el missatger a portar-te el mòbil i tal. Demano un Xperia SP i la portabilitat. Em diuen que aquest model ara no el tenen a la botiga però que en dos dies el tenen i que a partir d'aleshores, en dos dies més la portabilitat està feta. Dimecres 5 hi torno, que no m'han dit res. Em diuen que avui els ha arribat el mòbil, i que ara iniciaran la portabilitat. Dissabte 8 em diuen que la portabilitat en realitat són entre 24 i 72h, i que els caps de setmana no compten. Dimarts 11 hi torno. Resulta que el mòbil encara no el tenen. Que el de dimecres 5 no era el meu sinó el d'uns altres clients que portaven des de feia un mes esperant-lo. Que potser arriba demà. En resum, que dilluns 1 em van mentir dient-me que era més ràpid i que en dos dies tindria el mòbil, si sabien que hi havia gent esperant-ne de feia un mes. Que dimecres em van mentir dient-me que els havia arribat. I que dissabte van continuar amb la mentida. Un comportament penós.

Primera impressió correcta. Venen a pes i a part pagues el recipient (pots portar-hi el teu). Encara he de provar el xampú de poma que he comprat. Per cert, ingredients: Aqua, sodium laureth sulfate, magnesium laureth sulfate, cocamidopropyl betaine, aloe barbadensis, polyquaternium-7, hydrolyzed wheat protein, sodium hydroxymethylglycinate, parfum. Afegit: Ja fa uns dies que faig servir el xampú, i bé. Suposo que un dia d'aquests passaré a comprar-hi gel de bany.

Bones pizzes, bones amanides i bon preu. Un únic problema, per a mi. Massa soroll.
