"We Tripantu" El Año Nuevo Mapuche






CULTURE & COSMOVISION

"We Tripantu"

EL AÑO NUEVO MAPUCHE

 

Para el pueblo Mapuche o "gente de la tierra" el solsticio de invierno del Hemiferio Sur, no es solo el día con la noche más larga del año, sino que celebra la “nueva salida del Sol y la Luna”.  En la Cosmovisión Mapuche tiene un profundo significado "El fin de un ciclo y el comienzo de uno nuevo"  dando origen al "We Tripantu" o Año Nuevo Mapuche que es celebrado en  San Juan el 24 de junio .


La tierra se manifiesta. Sus cambios naturales son evidentes sobretodo en cuanto las estaciones del año. El solsticio de invierno se da en el Hemisferio Sur entre el 20 y el 23 de junio, y es por estas fechas se celebra el  We Tripantu. Son varios otros pueblos originarios quienes celebran este cambio de ciclo lo que demuestra su entrañable relación con la Tierra y sus fuerzas creadoras que ocasionan modificaciones en todo aquello que habita en su faz.

Image is Powerful but is Superficial - Cameron Russell



MIND, BEAUTY & WORLD


"Image is Powerful but is Superficial"

Cameron Russell at TEDx


Cameron Russell admits she won “a genetic lottery”: she's tall, pretty and an underwear model. But don't judge her by her looks. In this fearless talk, she takes a wry look at the industry that had her looking highly seductive at barely 16-years-old. 


Cameron Russell wants to have a discussion about the way that we, as a society, perceive beauty. Media representations of women, she says, are replete with racist and sexist representations, encouraging women to live up to a standard that is both oppressive and unattainable. Russell’s profession offers an insider’s perspective on the topic – after all, she has been modeling for over a decade .

"Image is powerful…but also, image is superficial. Barring surgery (or the fake tan I got for work) there’s very little we can do to transform how we look. And how we look — although it is superficial and immutable — has a huge impact on our lives. Today for me, being fearless means being honest. And I am on this stage because I’m a model — I’m on this stage because I am a pretty, white woman. In my industry we call that a ‘sexy girl’"  Cameron Russell.

"What will we see in the Next Generation of Healthcare?"

WHAT WILL WE SEE IN
the Next Generation of Healthcare?
By FORBES, presented by AFLAC


Millennials now outnumber baby boomers in America, a generational shift that promises dynamic changes for the next generation of healthcare.


Some of these changes are already underway, with young entrepreneurs creating startups to streamline care and improve outcomes. And, with digital health businesses receiving nearly $5 billion in venture capital funding in 2015, more transformation is on the way.  Read more on "The Next Generation of Healthcare" via FORBES.com

"Ciencia e Innovación" 
¿Se puede Cocinar sin Ingredientes?
Columna de Gabriel León via Innovación.cl

La Curiosidad es el motor que impulsa a la Ciencia en la búsqueda de nuevo conocimiento, haciendo que hombres y mujeres se aventuren a explorar el mundo con otros ojos. En  el intento constante de entender el funcionamiento de las cosas, muchos científicos han logrado descubrimientos inimaginables e incluso han cambiado nuestra forma de vida. 

 

En la Actualidad al mundo de la ciencia se le está exigiendo normas relativas a la innovación, haciendo que los científicos dejen de ser los locos del laboratorio y se conviertan en inventores, pero bajo esta premisa se a dejado de lado que es imposible  llegar a buenos resultados en materia de innovación sin los ingredientes que proporciona la investigación en ciencia básica. El desarrollo industrial,  la tecnología y las patentes  son resultado de la curiosidad, pero nunca habrían sido posibles sin los  conocimientos generados a partir de la investigación fundamental.  En esta columna Gabriel León nos habla de este tema, planteándonos que Privilegiar la innovación por sobre la ciencia no es el camino correcto.

"Santiago's Subway" Will Soon Be The First To Run On Mostly Solar And Wind Power

Will Soon Be The First To Run On Mostly Solar & Wind Power

The Atacama region in Chile—where it essentially never rains—is the sunniest place on the planet. By 2017, some of the solar power produced there will be sent hundreds of miles away to the subway in Santiago, the first metro system in the world that will get most of its power from renewable energy.

The subway, which serves 2.5 million commuters every day, will get up to 60% of its energy from a new solar installation and up to 18% from the nearby San Juan wind farm.

Though Chile is particularly sunny, the fact that a massive, power-hungry subway will be powered in large part by the sun is a testament to the rapid rise of solar as the cost of the technology keeps falling. "I think this is a sign of the mainstreaming of solar," says Tom Werner, CEO of SunPower, the California-based solar company that is designing and building the system.

"Les digo que estén interesados en cualquier cosa ¡No importan en qué!. Pienso que si quieres tener una vida satisfactoria, deberías dedicar tu vida a algo que te apasione. No es necesario que seas mejor que otra persona, sino que entregues lo mejor de ti." Harold Kroto

Sir Harold Kroto (1939-2016) era un apasionado científico, reconocido por obtener el Premio Nobel de Química en 1996, ser un diseñador gráfico y un promotor de la educación científica. Lideró dos grandes iniciativas Vega Science Trust y GEOSET, ambos proyectos digitales que tienen como objetivo promover el acceso a material educativo, y que han sido apoyadas por diversas instituciones educativas en el mundo. Tuvimos la oportunidad de hablar con él en Lindau, Alemania, en donde conocimos su espíritu joven, creatividad y pasión. Sin duda una de las personas más interesantes que hemos tenido la oportunidad de conocer. Lee el articulo completo via cienciajoven.cl

They now have a chance to pitch for a share of $1Million in funding and connect with influential mentors to accelerate their growth. Discover their unique stories and how each business is aiming to transform the world.


Meet this Social Entrepreneurship finalist: Diagnochip has developed a small device - KAR (Rapid Antibiotic sensitivity Kit) - that can determine, in a just few hours, the most effective treatment for urinary tract infections. Using micro-fluidic technology, our device functions as an antibiotic susceptibility test that will accurately analyse urine and blood samples to determine what antibiotics are required. 

"We complete this test and get the results in a time frame equal or less than that of a conventional laboratory diagnostic test" Diagnochip team. Patients are those suffering from bacteria-related urinary infections and the technology is intended to be used as a POCT (Point of Care Testing) device. Our device is particularly important for low-income populations living in rural areas or where medical facilities are poor. Our fast-test kits are affordable, sensitive, user-friendly, quick and robust. They are equipment free and easily deliverable to users living in the developing world.
