A través del Universo

This weekend was a sad one. I got some super crazy spanish flu and got stuck in bed all weekend. I was supposed to visit Ronda & Malaga with my program and all my friends, but que será será (what will be, will be) so I stayed in bed. I hopefully rested up enough to stay well for a long time since I have many trips planned for the next few weekends! My house mother has been so helpful and cute, she brings me tea and soup to my bed on a tray.

In the meantime, here are some pictures I have taken around town with my iphone!

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

“It was essential to get something into people’s hands that they could pass, share, distribute. It was a tactile visual not embodiment, but representation of what’s happening in the square, that isn’t being told by the mainstream media,” he said.

The newspaper, as well as the revolution, were inspired by the Arab Spring.

“This is fundamentally an outgrowth of events that happened in North Africa in the Arab-speaking world this year. 2011 has been an incredible year,” said Michael Levitin.

“We saw the impact of the Wahl-O-Mat and the advantages it had in Germany, and we just thought: ‘Why not use it here too? Almost half of our country is online, and we have a relatively young population, so we have good reason to believe this will be a successful tool.”
