Life: 100 Ways To Screw It Up A couple of months ago I wrote a blog post about 100 Ways To Live A Better Life. The post got featured almost instantly on Delicious, Reddit and StumbleUpon. Since then, it gets a few hundreds hits every day and a new comment every once in while (although it’s more than 2 months old now). But re-reading it the other day I spotted a slight imbalance.

5 Things F.C. Barcelona Can Teach You About Success I’m a man, so I like soccer. Don’t even try to challenge this affirmation, it’s hard wired in my genes. Just like women are born with the natural ability to give birth and nurture their children, men are born with the soccer gene in their DNA. It’s just the way it is. But I’m not a fan. There is one team, though, that stands out for me. As time went by, I realized that there are a few things in what Barca does, as a well oiled machine, that can benefit other people who want to replicate their insatiable appetite for success. 1. One of the most surprising things about F.C. But it’s a very important point and it can be translated as “be way better than what you think your opponent will be”. It’s like training to lift 50 kg every day. 2. Sometimes I can watch a soccer game, and even if the teams are wearing identical teeshirts, and the sound is off, I can recognize Barca. Be yourself, everyone else is taken, they say, and they say it for a good reason. 3. Each and every action counts. 4.

Morning Magic: Why the Early Bird Gets the Worm I may not have been an early bird since birth, but after years of training myself to jump-start my day, my body naturally wants to get a move on as soon as it’s light outside. In fact, I’m now almost incapable of sleeping past 8 a.m. Some people may consider that a tragic flaw, but I enjoy getting up early. More “Me” Time While my fiancé is hitting the snooze button repeatedly, I’m taking a leisurely shower, tidying up around the house, and catching up on last night’s Daily Show.

Puede sorprender que, después de mencionar la Península Ibérica, sólo haga referencia a los Pirineos y la región cantábrica, pero lo cierto es que las evidencias de Chatelperroniense están limitadas a esa estrecha franja del extremo septentrional de la Península. Labeko Koba y la evidencia arqueológica El trabajo de Ríos Garaizar al que me refería recoge el estudio de la industria lítica de un nivel Chatelperroniense, de Labeko Koba, una cueva que fue excavada en su totalidad antes de desaparecer bajo el crecimiento urbano de Arrasate-Mondragón.
