It will be held at the Axa Convention Center in Barcelona from March 14 to 16.
Martin Parr and Isabel Muñoz will be some of the important photographers invited of this edition.

The time in which the BBC (abbreviation commonly used to refer to the photography of weddings, baptisms and communions) was considered a category of second seems to have gone down in history. This is what the Photo Forum , the largest social photography festival in Europe, which will hold a new edition from March 14 to 16 at the Axa Convention Center in Barcelona.

An appointment that wants to claim an artistic branch that lives, in addition, one of its great moments in our country. In fact, according to the prestigious Fearless platform, five of the 25 best professionals in social photography are Spanish (awarded more than 170 prizes); and two Spaniards have been awarded with the award for Best Wedding Photographer of the World in 2015 and 2016 .

Photo Forum Barcelona welcomes, within its program of activities, two of the most important meetings in the sector. On the one hand, BodaF Europa , specialized in wedding photography with eight years of travel and replicas in Mexico, the United States and Portugal; and BabyF , a reference in family photography for four years.

With the aim of “combating the outdated concept” of social photography and video -as its organizers claim- and demonstrating that innovation is also a priority in this branch of audiovisual media, Photo Forum hosts over 50 conferences and master’s courses during these three days class . One of the highlights of this edition will be the talk given by Martin Parr , former director of the Magnum agency and an expert in portraying everyday life with irony and a sense of humor.

The festival will also have a commercial area of ​​more than 1000 square meters where international experts will meet in fashion photography, advertising, social, creative or instagramers, who will offer classes and workshops to all visitors; and where the best photography and video brands will exhibit the latest market developments.

Access to the commercial area is free (with previous registration on the festival website) while admission to the BodaF Europe and BabyF congresses require a payment accreditation. Martin Parr’s master class, meanwhile, will have individual tickets.

The man of the thousand and one weddings

If you are thinking about visualizing that moment of the yes I want, that scene of the exchange of arras, that of the interlaced hands toasting with champagne after cutting the cake or opening the dance with a waltz, you should know that Javier Aguilar does not do that. . This videographer and filmmaker from Jerez has not managed to become the second best in Spain in his own work for doing the typical or what the majority does. Recently awarded with the Golden Wedding Awards 2017 -equivalent to an Oscar in the world of wedding videos-, he takes care of us before receiving in his studio a couple who will get married in the middle of next year. It has the 2018 agenda “almost complete” and word of mouth about his work, increasingly recognized, is unstoppable. Earlier this year, Boasorte, his company for just under a decade,Trip Advisor of the wedding celebrations- as the most valued by its users. “We are sorry because there are many couples who watch the video of their friends, they love it and they want us to do theirs, but we do not have a space”.

After covering – in the almost journalistic sense of the term – “Dozens and dozens of weddings in the last three or four years”, wedding photo booth hire sydney and Aguilar has just landed several sessions in Paris, Brussels and Bruges, and is preparing for a summer of “non-stop ” “I do not know about holidays, now I’m in full season,” he says. With just turned 34, he started very young in the world of image and sound. Like so many other great professionals of the land, he trained at La Granja, where he began to kill that worm that led him to improvise dark rooms and photographic laboratories in the bathroom of his house. “I did the audiovisual production cycle, I bought my first photo and video camera, and I realized that I loved the world of communication and image.” Then he went to Seville and did film training courses,

Without stopping working, because the same has recorded and edited for the official television of Xerez CD in First that has gotten him hand during seven editions of the Jerez Festival channel, settled again in Jerez, already with his own project and almost completely turned to the world of weddings. “When you are a student, you can not imagine what it is like to register as a freelancer, pay rent, electricity, expenses, salaries and social security of your team … The beginnings are always complicated because the State forces you to pay without knowing if you win money or not. ” Even so, what he earns always reinvests him. “My philosophy is to continually reinvest the little money that is earned, this world changes continuously and only then can you give the best service, it’s already recorded in 4K, HD … they are a lot of gigs and you have to invest in new material”.

But not only new technologies live Boasorte. Little by little, Javi Aguilar has managed to create an identity in his way of seeing the marriage bonds, be they civil, Catholic, Muslim – he has covered two weddings of this type, one of them in Tangier – or evangelicals. “It has changed the way we see weddings, I try to treat them like a documentary, tell more stories before the wedding day of a couple, I try to go further and always being clear that less is more”. This work involves many months of getting to know the couple and turning to each celebration: the pre-wedding, the wedding, the post-wedding (many times in other countries) and, as a culmination, the sacrificed post-production exercise. “The hard work arrives in front of the computer, there you start to compose the story with all that material that we have recorded, always trying exclusivity, which is a very personal documentary, and for that we do interviews with relatives, the bride and groom speak, and everything has a much more particular touch. What we are looking for is to totally change the traditional wedding video we knew, “he explains.

In the end, all the emotions, those memories, can fit in a clip of two minutes, the maximum time that the experts recommend that a video posted on social networks last. Nobody wants to give the embers to the friend or family member with that eternal video of their wedding that bores the sheep. In the era of Facebook and Instagram, where immediacy and the audiovisual are worth their weight in gold bars, Aguilar’s camera looks with those eyes, aware of the change of trend in its sector. The couple knows it. “Everybody wears mobiles and on Sunday after the wedding the whatsapp will smoke, but shaping the wedding video is more complicated, many weddings in 2018 have told us that we are the first provider for the event, not even the catering The videographer was before the ugly duckling of weddings, it was the last thing that was hired, always to slipstream, and now, on the other hand, I have weddings to which photographers no longer go, only us. We are your only memory, imagine the responsibility. That’s what I’ve seen that has changed compared to when I was doing weddings ten years ago. ”

Besides being a cameraman and a filmmaker, it could be said that this Jerez-born also has experience in sociology and economics as an observer of one of those social events that, in a certain way, are “a reflection of society”. The protagonists of weddings have changed a lot in these years and weddings are still held despite the crisis. “We get budget requests almost daily, the business is booming.” About the parties, he analyzes: “Now there are unions of more trained couples, a few years ago they belonged in the majority of cases to the construction sector and now they are, above all, many civil servants and university people. and the subject of children has changed a lot because before it was very rare, and nowadays it is rare for a couple who do not marry children “.

The boom in new technologies is also a double-edged sword. Intrusion and piracy are a constant.  “There are some who, without a technical base or knowledge, and only because they have done their brother-in-law’s wedding, they get into this, although, fortunately, there are more and more places where they ask you to be discharged and they make an important screen” He argues, and adds: “It is true that the bride and groom also look more at the quality than the price, when they offer something very cheap and they hesitate and opt for professionals in the sector, they have stolen videos from my website and have I’ve been rulando pages of other people in other areas of Spain.

BlackBerry Messenger on iPhone and Android: security and confirmation of reading the message are its arguments

How many instant messaging applications fit on your mobile? Or posts to expand views, on your computer, tablet, or any of the devices that serve us to establish communications. In the market do not stop appearing alternatives , multiplatform, looking to stand out from the rest.

We must stop to think if several of them can coexist in the same device – poor batteries -. I believe it is a fact, and although there is always a priority use of some, it is possible that we have a complementary service, or dedicated to a specific use, determined by its special characteristics. That I think is the initial bet of BlackBerry with its BBM , not wait for people to migrate to them, but be inside your phone, accompanying those who have already installed, and show little by little that their approach is the best . They come late?

Today Android, tomorrow iPhone

We are not going to discover BBM , it was a recognized reality before many of the protagonists appeared on the map – currently there are more than sixty million users – but the dimension that has its output in the iOS and Android platforms , makes us have to talk about practically a new service.

In its launching in the platforms of Google and Apple, we find a first phase, where they have brought the core of the service – with all the guarantees that have made it reliable in BlackBerry – leaving behind two important pillars such as BlackBerry Video and Voice , which will come later (there is also screen sharing, but I think that is part of the integration with BlackBerry10).

2.5 million users have registered with to download the application

The main problem that BBM will find to succeed is that – for a change – they arrive a little late , with lots of alternatives already installed on people’s phones.

I think they are going to have to work seriously in promoting the service – in addition to listening, which I think will be positive – in digital and traditional media, as the competition does. For now, I do not want to give them a hand, but it seems fair to me to know what their strengths are:

BBM offers security

Among its virtues are to find a free solution , which works worldwide, and which has security as the main claim to highlight the alternatives. BBM works on its servers, with proven reliability and data encryption. Little is known about the level of encryption of the information of the alternatives, and this may be a value to take into account in professional environments.

The next step they want us to value, and I think it’s important, is to manage our agenda . In the Blackberry PGP service we make contacts through our pin, associated with a BlackBerry ID . We will both generate them when we sign up for the application, and that is what we share to establish communication. To become the most complete solution, they would have to open the desk doors of our personal computers.

You can verify that the aspect is very similar to what we know in BlackBerry 10, and there are hardly any differences between versions. We find the sliding menus, and the same design language in elements and menus. In this sense nothing surprising, simply functional and without stridency. The Android application moves quite smooth in the terminal that I can test it, an LG Optimus G, in addition to looking better on a larger screen than the Z10.

Locksmith MG opens the door to success

The hard work and entrepreneurial spirit characterize Jonathan de Loera Flores, who started as a locksmith reservoir and now owns Cerrajería Mg, one of the fastest growing businesses nationwide and with great potential abroad.

“I started as a locksmith here in Aguascalientes, three years working almost 24 hours, I saw that there was no company that sold wholesale to supply the locksmiths; This way, I became anxious to sell and little by little I grew. I was one of the pioneers in Mexico in the sale of keys with chips, “he said.

The sale of keys with chip for automobiles was a niche in Aguascalientes and throughout the country: its zero production positioned the market as an opportunity to undertake, for which it looked for suppliers in the United States, it managed to bring the best merchandise and it became business leader

Despite being one of the big distributors, Jonathan Flores detected that there was a lack of products requested by customers; for this reason, he ventured into the maquila of these, personifying the needs of the users and covering the demands.

Locksmiths Mg started with 2 people and currently employs 45. In addition, it has a team of software developers for smart keys and locks.

Distributes nationally and exports to the United States and even to Europe. It has 4 branches in Aguascalientes, one in Guadalajara and another in Querétaro. But due to the high demand, it will open in April 2015 a branch in Los Angeles, California, which will allow it to provide a better service to its customers in the neighboring country.

Currently in its main branch there are more than 7,500 products and 20,000 available upon request. The best sellers are keys with chip, chip holder keys and housings for automobile remote controls. Also, it began to produce its own machines for the cutting of common and chip keys, which will be released to the market.

Jonathan Flores, concerned about the constant training, has implemented within the locksmith industry, conventions and exhibitions, both for distributors and for programming staff. He celebrated that this year they will organize one at the Banamex Center in the Federal District and another one in Puerto Vallarta, the latter exclusively for the software generation team.

On its internet pages you can find product information and support for Mexico and the United States.

In its recent incorporation to Endeavor, this company will be one of the first to work with the accelerator during 2015 to cement and enhance its growth.

Locksmiths MG has the key to an even more promising future.

Vegegarden restaurants

Until recently, the options to enjoy a vegetarian meal in Barcelona were quite limited and it was not uncommon for vegetarians to settle for a sad dish of lettuce and an apple. Luckily, both for the detractors of the meat and those who like to try new flavors, things have changed a lot. There are few restaurants, bars and shops that in recent years have specialized in organic products and vegetarian cuisine. That’s why I wanted to share some of the vegetarian restaurants in Barcelona that I liked the most so far.

TERESA CARLES – Considered by many to be the best vegetarian restaurant software in Barcelona, ​​I could not miss the list. It is a cozy place, with large windows, in which as soon as you enter you can see the products they use. In their recipes they combine traditional Catalan cuisine and signature cuisine, which gives a different touch to the food. Do not forget to try their vegetable cannelloni! They also serve breakfast and brunch. Where: C / Jovellanos, 2. El Raval. Metro: Catalunya (L1-L3). How much: 10-25 €. When: every day from 9 a.m. to 11 p.m.

AMALTEA – It’s a quiet and relaxed place, quite purist, from the same owners as the Govinda restaurant, so in its kitchens there is no lack of Hindu inspiration. Among its dishes, the seitan escalope with avocado and eggplant and chickpea stew deserve special mention. The bread that accompanies the dishes is also homemade. They do not serve alcoholic beverages. Where: C / de la Diputació, 164. L’Eixample. Metro: Urgell (L1). How much: € 9-30. When: Monday to Saturday from 1pm. at 4pm. and from 20 h. at 23 h.

How to mount your home studio

You dream of a room of 100m ² to mount your studio photo ? Problem: this represents 18 times the surface area of ​​your kitchen …

This Practical Wednesday  will give you a few tricks to successfully mount the photo studio you need depending on the place and the means available. The idea is to offer you something that will easily fit you.

A photo studio? Why ? How? How many ?

A photo studio … the term is vague, even when it is mini, or “homemade”.

The first question to ask you, but to which you probably already have an answer, is what will be the use of this studio?  Is it to make macro pictures or products? Or to mount a portrait studio? Or for full-length footage with a staging? For those who are not afraid of water, you can even photograph water drops in the studio .

Before discussing any of these configurations, let’s review the hardware needed to mount a home photo studio . You’ll need :

  • A background, preferably plain, the size you want, or can.
  • Light, artificial is more practical to handle
  • Supports for the background and light sources
  • A foot for your device is always more pleasant,
  • And why not connect your camera to your computer ?

Studio macro or pack shot

Let’s start with the mini-photo studios , if you can call them studios, they will allow you to take pictures, or make the macro easily. From house-made to ready-made, there’s something for every purse.

As shown in this illustration, a cardboard box on both sides is sufficient, a lamp or a flash on one or both sides for a more homogeneous light, and ideally the camera on a tripod.

The most important in this realization is not to have folds on the sheet forming the bottom . For if there is a fold that marks the bottom of the cardboard, there will also be a shadow, often unsightly.

Then comes the possibility, still in the same register, to buy material made just like this dome studio  easier to transport and probably more solid than a cardboard box and three sheets A4.

You understood the principle? Now you just have to imagine how to create a “lightbox” with the means of the edge.

Studio for portrait

The small portrait studios  are of intermediate size in relation to the three main types stated above.

That said portrait usually tallies on the head or the bust  and so you will need a smaller area of ​​fabric for the background, less light and less recoil than to take pictures of full foot (the photos From the ground to the wide angle it was never really that). And if you want my opinion there is already enough to do artistically and technically, both in terms of light settings, and composition of the photo before you “need” to upgrade to the maxi version of.

For this portrait studio, you will need a wall or a black, white or a color sheet of your choice (see end of article in links, you will find ideas for making Personalized funds).

The supports can also be homemade. For the most resourceful, you can make your own with PVC tubes for example.

In terms of DIY photography lighting, it is still possible to use the incandescent or halogen bulbs , the flash cobra deported  in strobisme fashion , or for the lucky studio flashes, and the broadcasters (or umbrellas).

Here are two Strobist articles: a complete Explanatory Wednesday and a   “strobist” tutorial in which we explain how to use a cobra flash with a light box and a diffuser to create beautiful portraits.

Studio for full or staging photos

For this type of photo, the background must obviously be larger, and the light sources more powerful or more numerous (and therefore larger diffusers or reflectors).

As can be seen in the illustration above, for this type of picture it often takes a large room, which will be used largely for the “decor” or installation of equipment like large umbrellas, fans, Or other.

Different types of equipment

You will understand that depending on the photo studio you want to go to, you will need very different things: a cardboard box, three A4 sheets, a desk lamp, flash cobra or studio (AlienBees, Elinchrom , Bowens), in-house diffusers, umbrellas, flash and umbrella stands, reflectors, bottoms, base supports, etc.

Here there are two solutions: either tinkering what you need, or investing in ready-made and complete kits, which are, good news, less and less expensive! The important thing is to be able to adapt your material according to your constraints, but also to be able to play and model the light.

For a start, think of using at least two flashes, a remote trigger system (type Cactus), and tripod for your flashes to adjust height, distance and orientation.

When a simple comic book mobilizes against deep-sea fishing


In two days, blogger Pénélope Bagieu’s blog was shared more than 230,000 times on Facebook and collected nearly 345,000 signatures for a petition against deep-sea fishing.

A good drawing is better than a long speech. On Monday evening, the cartoonist Pénélope Bagieu posts one of her small comic strips that make the success of her 10 best fishing blog ” My life is quite fascinating “. Under the title ” Take five minutes and sign buddy “, the blogger signs an illustrated plate detailing the ecological disaster of deep-sea fishing, the economic heresy she represents and the handful of industrialists to whom she Profit, Intermaché in mind. The writing is round, the drawings are light and full of humor. “But it is not because there are beautiful colors that the talk is not alarmist,” says Pénélope Bagieu, author of the comic become viral. In two days, the publication is split over 230. 000 times on Facebook. Better yet, the petition against deep-sea fishing to which it refers collects more than 345,000 signatures, at a rate of ten news per second!

Intermarché in the crosshairs

An unexpected result for the Bloom association , at the origin of this online petition that had so far 30,000 signatures in five months, for a goal of 400,000.Victim of its success, the site was unavailable for 12 hours Monday: its server did not hold the charge. “I am delighted that this happens, jubilates Claire Nouvian, founder of the association. So far, we have been well followed by the traditional media, but the French did not mobilize. ” Established in 2004, Bloom has relentlessly denounced the ecological disaster of deep-sea fishing, figures supported by Pénélope Bagieu in his comic book. Taking advantage of the emulation, the founder of the association called on Tuesday the Elysee to whom is intended this petition:

Opponents of deep-sea fishing are particularly targeting French industry, which it accuses of intense lobbying to prevent any restriction of this practice. Every year, Bloom publishes a ranking of the French retailers most respectful of the seabed , where Intermarché arrives last. The brand, which boasts six deep trawlers, is the largest fleet in France, is accused by the association of practicing a fishing method “described by researchers as the most destructive of history”. Pressed to react, the sign should be expressed Wednesday in Lorient.

Currently, the association is looking to the European Parliament, which is preparing to vote a resolution to frame deep-sea fishing in Europe and the Northeast Atlantic. It provides for the banning of the most destructive methods. But it also proposes the adoption of more environmentally friendly techniques such as longline fishing. A method that would generate six times more jobs than bottom trawling, when the industry is agitating the threat of job cuts in the event of a ban. “The joker” jobs “is therefore opportunistic and dishonest, but nobody is fooled at European level, explains Claire Nouvian. We just hope that the Bretons will not be fooled by this construction of a false social threat. ”

How to make the best dog search poster

Assume that your dog is lost and although you have already published a lot of warnings that all begin with “Lost Dog” all over the neighborhood, there are still no signs of it.

What should you do?
As you are looking for someone to locate it as quickly as possible, you have to improve the poster to make it more effective.

One way to increase the chances of finding your Fido is to avoid some of the usual mistakes in posters made by little-known owners

For example, these posters are small and often illegible and even put in the windows of cars, where there is a poor quality photo of missing types of dogs, or that poster full of irrelevant information and small print … and illegible.So let’s go with the important steps:

How to Make a GOOD Lost Dog Search Poster

1 . You have to apply a basic principle, ” Few words, and big photos “.

2 . Letters of 72 point size are illegible from a moving vehicle, so you must use letters of at least 100 points

3 . Give a description of your lost dog as accurately as you can, but not too detailed. Or you risk receiving thousands of calls from a thousand people who think they’ve seen it on a thousand sites

Four . Never write personal information of yours . A good way to get in touch with you is to give the mobile phone number, that’s enough.

5 . Make the effort to make the Lost Dog posters as colorful as possible in order to easily capture the attention of the people. Put a recent picture of your lost dog, and your contact number.

6. Make sure your posters are visible enough to be identified. Some people put small or fuzzy photos, in the middle of a huge lawn, or on a checkered sofa. The drivers will only have a few seconds to see clearly the poster when they pass

7. When you go out to find your dog, take with you a lot of additional posters to distribute in local businesses in the area , post offices, veterinarians and local shelters …

8. If necessary, try to recruit for your support extra hands of people in your neighborhood, co-workers, and even children who will be of great help in finding your lost dog.

Put a sign in your own yard for neighbors to know that your dog has disappeared!

Take signs to the vet in your area, just in case someone stole your dog and they want to do a veterinary examination , to sell it. Leave the booklet behind the counter , where only employees can see it. Also alert your brand of microchips, if the dog takes it

Mutts, the comic of the Creole dogs

Mutts is all that a comic strip should be: fun and with two wonderfully innocent main characters. And that’s just what Charles M. Schulz, the creator of Snoopy, claims . This cartoon by Patrick McDonnell is currently published in more than 500 newspapers in 20 countries. There are a total of 8 anthologies published in the United States to date and has won the National Cartoonists Society’s “Best Comic Strip of the Year”; The prestigious German Max and Moritz , and two Genesis Awards from The Ark Trust .


Although it is not a 100% comic strip about animal Dog Breed Index abandonment, which might suggest its name (Mutt = dog criollo), once a year McDonnell publishes strips where he seeks to sensitize readers, about abandoning animals and promotes the adoption of The same in the protectors.
The author
Patrick McDonnell like many other people, has a special penchant for animals, and a remarkable talent for drawing. That combination led him to create in 1994 his Mutts strip known in the Spanish-speaking countries as Motas, where he tells the friendship of a dog (Earl) and a cat (Mooch). As its author indicates, this story is a celebration of the simple. It remembers the intimate and the familiar of the day to day.


In Mutts’ stories, McDonnell shows himself to be a great lover and defender ofthe environment and animals. Its characters, without abandoning the humor, are able to transmit clear messages in this sense.
The philosophy of the work is shaped in a world where animals and men live in a beautiful balance. And although McDonnell is an activist of various animal-protective organisms, his strips never address that problem directly.

Light, but critical, this strip has caught the attention of many readers, and can now be found in newspapers almost everywhere in the world.

McDonnell was born in 1956, in New Jersey, into an Italian-Irish family. His parents met as students at the Cooper Union Art School . Both McDonnell and his brothers grew up in an environment where art was a habitual attitude.
Although he studied at the School of Visual Arts , he is convinced that a comic author is born, not done. When he was seven years old, he wrote a letter to Charles M. Schulz, and in that letter he allowed himself to suggest to the teacher the possibility that Snoopy might have a fellow mate.

Roman art of the locksmith


Boat-shaped locks, First half of the third century, released by jtautosecurity co uk

The clostraria ars , also known as the “art of the locksmith” was already an independent office in Roman and later period. Luxurious locks and padlocks boat shaped show that their manufacture had not merely functional. Its shape is usually round, although in some cases it is also rectangular and octagonal, and the casing is made ​​of iron, iron with bands of silver or bronze, or simply bronze.

The intended use for these locks were fork locks, padlocks for chains and shackles and toes. The realknow-how lies in the ingenious closing mechanism. The boat-shaped locks are divided according to their different locking mechanisms: in twistlocks with sliding latch, raised the key to turning the locking spring.Once he released the latch is pushed toward the bottom while still turning and the locking pin is released.To remove the key from the lock, you must first return to the starting position. The twist – lock mechanism with closing spring is simpler. When the key is turned 180 degrees, engage the teeth of the bit through the guard and push the closing spring back with the nose. This releases the latch. Thanks to the spring pressure, returns to its closed position automatically when released. If you have to close the lock, simply enter again the latch and lock it slams shut.

The 14 boat-shaped locks found in the tank Neupotz that may be some in the exhibition of the MARQ,the Treasury Barbarians are so far only by their quantity and condition. The two locking mechanisms described have been found from X – rays. All housings are made ​​of iron sheets. Along with unadorned copies are also others who have three decorative brass bands and the heads of the molded rivets.Compared with existing locks, these simple locks were not very strong. They should exercise more of a chilling effect, as the use of physical violence produced noise and could draw the attention of residents and neighbors.

Encourage water conservation by comic

In the absence of information about Mexican society about the alarming condition of aquifers in the country, Mexican researchers created the comic world H2O, an alternative scientific dissemination as a mass media.

The comic captures the attention, invoke emotional responses, promotes imagination and thereby promotes scientific knowledge is understood more easily, said Victor H. Cedeño Martinez, professor at the Technological Institute of Monterrey, and Luis Ernesto Marín Stillman, researcher the Institute of Geophysics of the National Autonomous University of Mexico.

In his article water softeners reviews through Comic, published in the latest issue of the journal Science, disseminator of the Mexican Academy of Sciences, Martínez Cedeño and Marin Stillman got to know that the cartoon World H2O, which has a overview of the water situation also helps overcome the common problems in traditional teaching, in which students learn only focuses on data that will soon be forgotten.

The mixture of text and drawings of comic favors popular science, as they provide anchors that make memorable information with a model more familiar to the public representation, because in Mexico cartoon enjoys a wide social acceptance.

The material for scripts World H2O, which is supported by article Water in Mexico: challenges and opportunities, Luis E. Marin reports on the three problems of groundwater in our country: the overexploitation of aquifers, the and contamination of the saline intrusion, ie, when salt water (from the sea) flows into the continental subsoil mixed with freshwater reserves.

In their article, the researchers explained that the story has three main components: an introduction that addresses water war; a virtual journey from the future of Mexico where the characters, after a series of problems, learn about the importance of water and finally an epilogue in the future to strengthen transmitted ideas.

In an interview, Luis Marin Stillman, former coordinator of the Network of Water and member of the AMC, announced that H2O World is a doctoral project Victor H. Martinez, who attends graduate school in Humanistic Studies with a concentration in science and culture in the Technological Institute of Superior Studies Monterrey, where he is also professor.

Cartoon essentially aimed at 14- to 20-year-old was distributed among students of the UNAM and ITESM, and achieved excellent acceptance, Marin said Stillman.

Another project in which both researchers work in collaboration with the World Water

Assessment Program of the United Nations which aims to bring science to the general population and make available data vital fluid situation in the country.

Luis Marin said that due to the enormous concern at global and national level, water problems in the Federal District, as well as the great ignorance of most of society in relation to water, such projects are needed.

Follows a major effort to make people understand that water is a resource that if you do not care is scarce, pointed, besides constituting an attempt to socialize science.

The “hilarious” comic of a mother about pregnancy and motherhood

It does not happen often, but when someone asks me some advice to raise their children give them only two (once took many, now only two): Listen to your baby over the other people and take it humorously .
