I often speak to myself

Why ? “Sometimes I feel like I am writing the subtitles of my own life,” confesses Sandra, 37, an account manager. I'm commenting on pretty much everything I'm about to do: “Okay, I'm going to put on my blue skirt, because it doesn't look like it's too cold today”, “I'm going to take off fifty euros should be enough ”, etc. When I do it in front of my boyfriend, who is used to it, it goes. But when this happens to me in public, people's stares make me feel totally ridiculous! " I'm focusing Far from serving communication, "these comments expressed aloud have the particularity of not addressing anyone other than ourselves", assures psychiatrist Dominique Delmas. If they are so personal, then why not keep them inside? For psychologist and ps...

Thirteen provinces travel to 2050: they already have only 1.5 contributors per pensioner

The Spain 2050 report, prepared by a hundred experts to try to glimpse how society and the Spanish economy will evolve in the coming decades, warned that by the middle of the century there would be only three contributors for every two pensioners, or, what is the same, one and a half contributor for each pensioner. An asset-liability ratio so short that it would prevent financing the pension system. It is assumed that for a system to be in financial equilibrium, in addition to having monetarily contemporaneous contributions and benefits, it must have at least 2.5 active contributors for each pensioner or liability. A relationship from which Spain is now very far away, and from which it will be much more so in 2050 if the projections made by the report sponsored by Moncloa are true. Spa...

Covid-19: G7 to donate 1 billion doses of vaccine to poor countries

The leaders of the rich countries of the G7 will donate to poor countries one billion doses of vaccines against covid-19 to "end the pandemic" in 2022, the British presidency of that group announced this Thursday. In a statement released this Thursday by the French news agency AFP, the British government said that during the G7 meeting, which will take place between Friday and Sunday, in the southwest of England, "the leaders of the great powers will announce the availability of at least one billion doses of the vaccine against the coronavirus, sharing doses and funding them". According to the British government, which this year holds the presidency of the G7, the leaders of the rich countries must also "present a plan to expand the product...

Long live the ‘txaka’ skewer

Everything we know about the txaka we have learned it in bars older than us. With barely six feet tall, we were baptized in the art of going for pintxos with this amalgam of surimi and mayonnaise on bread that even then was sweetly powerful, placidly substantial and fresh like the Basque summer. In those altars of San Sebastián we learned to differentiate the skewers from txaka freshly made from the ones that had already dozed off on the counter. We learned that the higher the volume of txaka -the lower peaks have been seen- worse was the quality of this. We also learned that whoever frowned when someone asked was one of those who gobbled it up in the shadows. And the thing is that the San Sebastian is very proud of his Peine del Viento, of its festivals, of its winter waves, of the Gi...

Piadines of Emilia-Romagna

The piadines or piadine They are a typical flat bread from the Italian region of Emilia-Romagna -whose capital is Bolonia-, related to the flat cakes of the whole planet, ranging from Mexican tortillas to Indian chapati. There is nothing more primal than to make a paste with flour and water, crush it into a cake and cook it on any hot surface, a type of preparation born in many areas of the world independently (out of necessity). There is Consorzio di Tutela e Promozione della Piadina Romagnola IGP, which defines what is and is not an authentic piadina: a product made with wheat flour and water, fat - pork butter or olive oil - and salt; it may or may not contain some chemical yeast. The Knights of the Consortium distinguish two traditional types of piadin: the classic, compact, thick ...

Am I bipolar or only depressed?

I do not know you, dear Just, I have never seen you and I have never spoken with you. But I am sure of one thing: you are neither "depressed" nor "bipolar". Why ? Because no man or woman can be defined by such a reductive diagnosis. And especially not at an age, like yours, where everything - in the head as in the body - is in perpetual change, because we continue to build ourselves. I therefore suggest that you leave these learned terms at the accessories store, and come back to reality to talk, simply, about what you are suffering from. You tell me that you have, from the age of 13, experienced "severe depression" that no one has ever noticed (why?). That you are sometimes sad, with a permanent desire to sleep and no desire to eat. And sometimes cheerful,...

The level of studies determines the degree of acquisition of digital skills

The numerous restrictions caused by the coronavirus have made remote work or education and hybrid environments a palpable reality in many countries for more than a year. The leading role of new technologies is a fact that will also be accentuated in the future. "As individuals and as a society, we have to be co-evolutionary with the digital tools with which we are living together, and if we do not want to be left out, we have to constantly be acquiring digital skills," says Gema Requena, director of the consulting firm Nethunting. An effort in which factors such as age and, above all, the level of studies, play a fundamental role, since people with high educational levels demonstrate a greater development of digital skills, according to a recent study by the Observatory of digital skil...

Leaving home

It would be very difficult to summarize the relationship with home better than Vivian Gornick: "If you don't leave home you suffocate, if you go too far you lack oxygen." But in his highly recommended last novel, The only child (Anagram), Guadalupe Nettel manages to explain the breadth of meanings that the concept of home can have from the description of unconscious gestures that accommodate or bother someone inside a home, noting seemingly insignificant details - such as a ham and cheese sandwich that it feels like a protective handle— or narrating the evolution of unexpected coexistence. Without directly addressing this issue, treating it as the framework that is always a home, the novel reflects how the idea of ​​home as dwelling has changed and how much of that change has to do with...
