Two young adults, without risk factors and who were in intensive care for covid-19, warned about the disease that is a "Russian roulette" and that leaves several sequelae that affect life after hospital discharge. “Covid-19 is not a flu.

Strive for excellence, but which one?

I have always been annoyed by the pursuit of "excellence". It seems to me that it most often hides something: a normative excess, a threat to singularities, an obsession for technical excellence which does not necessarily go hand in hand with a concern for human “excellence”.

The Dutch brought this sauce to Europe at the beginning of the 19th century and, after accumulating prizes at the Universal Expositions in Amsterdam (1864) and Vienna (1873), the umami flavor remained forever on the continent. The Kikoman name, on the other hand, dates from 1980, when the company went from supplying the emperors to...
