Three-million-year-old Makapansgat Pebble from South Africa. Perhaps the most ancient art object in the world. 
Is definitely not a manufactured object, it has been suggested that some australopithecine, might have recognized it as a symbolic face, in possibly the earliest example of symbolic thinking or aesthetic sense in the human heritage, and it is said to have been carried over a distance of four kilometers by Australopithecus and brought the pebble back to the cave.

Dotting the I 

Colorful bindis are being handed out to tribal women in India by a philanthropic organization. When worn on the forehead, each dot delivers a daily dose of 100-150 micrograms of iodine (chemical symbol: I) which is absorbed by the skin. At least 70 million Indians suffer from iodine deficiency disorders. Sure, oral supplements or iodized salts are more efficient, but the tribal women won't take them. The bindis are a socially more acceptable, and creative, approach to dietary compliance! 

Bad Air: Iodine deficiencies were described by ancient Roman writers and medieval travelers, who would encounter entire villages in the Alps or southern Europe struck by cretinism.  Thought to be due to "bad air" or "stagnant water" in the mountains, we now know that dwarfism, deformed bones and intellectual disability are due to lack of iodine-rich thyroid hormone. Goiter belts characterized the more mildly afflicted inland regions of Europe and N. America, where populations were marked by enlarged thyroids and grossly swollen throats. Along the coast, however, wave action disperses natural iodine salts from sea water into the air, from where it enters our ecosystem. No wonder, sea air was recommended for recuperating invalids. 

The Rise and Fall of I: After the discovery of iodine in 1811, Lugol's solution (mostly potassium iodide, or KI) became the universal panacea of western medicine. Medical students were advised:

If ye don’t know where, what, and why 
Prescribe ye then K and I

But too much of a good thing led to the discovery that excess iodine actually blocked thyroid hormone production (known as Wolff-Chaikoff effect). Today, the Reference Daily Intake or RDI has decreased from 1 gram, to 150 micrograms, which many practitioners believe is too little. Proponents of iodine therapy point out the benefits in preventing breast cancer, skin disorders and more. For a fascinating history of the controversies and facts see the article in the reference.

Now you see me, now you don’t. 

This octopus blends in perfectly with the coral, changing the color and texture of its skin. This impressive skill helps it escape predators...

Museus
- Per què anem a museus d'art modern? L'únic que fem és queixar-nos de no entendre-hi res.
- Merda! Ens ha atrapat!
- Si la gent la segueix, les subvencions per a les arts s'acabaran!
- Fot-li, Frank!
- Merda! per què són les rodes quadrades?
- Perquè estic reimaginant el cubisme!

I també si en coneixeu un i us porta d'acompanyant. Doncs això, visita gratuïta a la Sagrada Família el vespre de Sant Jordi. No sé si sense la llum del sol passant pels vitralls tindrà tanta gràcia, però la visita paga la pena.

La Sagrada Família celebra la festivitat de Sant Jordi convidant en un visita nocturna tots els Jordis i Jordines, que podran visitar gratuïtament el temple el vespre del 23 d'abril. Es tracta d'una visita guiada que es pot fer amb reserva prèvia fins que s'exhaureixi l'aforament, que és 45 entrades dobles disponibles.

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 :-)

No he visitat el museu, només la cafeteria. Una xocolata desfeta boníssima, igual que els melindros i els croissants. Un pèl car, això sí.
