Mensajes en la Ciudad... ¿Cómo la ciudad apropia la voz de los ciudadanos? ¿Qué pasa si escribimos sobre la ciudad los mensajes hacia los ríos? Eventualmente y como con muchas opiniones de crítica, esperanza y aliento, la ciudad e incluso el clima borrara nuestra voz, la hacen perderse entre ruidos y los apurados ritmos de vida. Con esta sencilla intervención se plasmaron algunos de los mensajes, recopilados de la instalación anterior, sobre el puente del Río Arzobispo. Buscábamos dejar el impacto de los mensajes en el espacio y aumentar su tiempo en el mismo, demostrando cómo la ciudad y su ritmo de "desarrollo" va borrando los deseos y anhelos de unos pocos.

Harvard Professor Finds That Innovative Ideas Spread Like The Flu; Here's How To Catch Them You can hear it in the way we speak: Songs are infectious, trends are contagious, videos go viral. We use disease to describe data. Information acts like illness. As it turns out, so does innovation. While Google helps us understand the way the flu moves and a Facebook app can ferret out who might make you sick, what's missing from the sniffly conversation is that disease and ideas both travel along social networks--the real-life kind. Enter network science, an emergent discipline drawing from sociology, medicine, and statistics. "Things don't just diffuse in human populations at random. The key is exposure. "Individuals located centrally within a network will be at both an increased risk for the acquisition of a pathogen," Christakis says tells Fast Company, "and an increased risk for the acquisition of novel information." Of course, being aware of ideas doesn't necessarily mean anything--it's what you do with it. "What we found was striking," Miller says.

The Little Paris Kitchen Rachel Khoo, chef: The Parisians absolutely love ‘croque madame’ and I love them too! but I like to make them a bit different and put them in a little muffin tin. - The Croque Madame is a Parisian version of a British bacon buttie. But here it’s more of a lunchtime snack. First thing I need to do is make my béchamel sauce. - Pour 200ml of milk, slowly, to avoid getting any lumps. That’s perfect. - Now grab a rolling pin and flatten the bread to about half the thickness. I wonder if I could to do two at the same time. - And then to get that Croque crisp, coat the bread in butter to stop it getting soggy. No crunch no ‘croque’! - Put your muffins in the oven at 180 degrees for 15 minutes. That smells really good … let’s have a look. - Sometimes it’s the simplest of dishes that gives you the most pleasure.

Saying boo to a sloth! David Attenborough: In this tree there is one of the most extraordinary plant predators. It’s one animal that I don’t need to sneak up on … Boo! This extraordinary creature is half-blind, half-deaf and this is just about as fast as it can move. That’s what’s going to happen to you if you live on nothing but leaves! It’s a sloth. Leaves are not very nutritious. In the time it takes me to write a few letters, the sloth just about manages to groom itself.
