Graphene is a material that comes from graphite and has an atomic structure composed of carbon and hydrogen, arranged in a honeycomb structure and has amazing features, such as: high thermal and electrical conductivity, flexibility, hardness, resistance, lightness, etc. And if it were not enough, Graphene is also believed to have the ability to repair itself, is it not amazing?

Can you imagine screens a few millimeters thick? Or batteries that last much longer? Super processors barely heated? Graphene has many applications in all fields of modern science. One example is in biotechnology, through which scientists could make progress in the fight against terminal illnesses or even implants to replace damaged tissues at a cellular level.

Energy consumption that comes from fossil fuel worldwide would change drastically due to that graphene is able to absorb sunlight and transform it into electrical energy, allowing a family to be energy self-sufficient in solar periods. The use of Graphene contributes to fight against climate change.

A day in the North of Gran Canaria

Written by Juana Delia Sosa

         Would you like to spend a day in the best places in Gran Canaria? Come to the North of Gran Canaria and enjoy visiting wonderful places, eating traditional products or taking a bath in its natural pools and beaches.

    The northen route leads us from Arucas to reach Agaete, driving across Santa María de Guía and Gáldar.

     The first stop in the journey is Arucas. The old city , full of history,  where we’d walk through  the streets of stones surrounded by colorful houses with attractive balconies until arriving at the gothic church which gives the city a magnificent image.

     In the itinerary from Arucas to Guía we’ll stop in a small cove called ‘ El Puertillo’. There we’ll take the first bath or simply we’ll have a ‘tapa’ while we relish) the breathtaking views from the sea.

     Just 10 minutes from El Puertillo  we’ll arrive at Santa María de Guía.  Every Sunday the city sets a traditional market where the visitor or tourist can buy and taste the local products like the cheese called ‘ queso de flor’.   

     Once we leave Santa María de Guía , we’ll visit Gáldar where the first compulsory place  is the Painted Cave. Inside the archeological museum, we’ll go back to the prehispanic period and will know how the native population lived.

      At the end of the journey we find Agaete. There we’ll go across the village to visit the Valley of Agaete. In the Valley, we’ll be able to contemplate the beauty of its rural landscape and will taste Agaete coffee.

Leaving the Valley back, we’ll go back to the village center to enter in the ‘ Huerto de las Flores’. This particulary garden with a lot of varieties of exotic plants was the meeting point of canarian poets like Tomás Morales and Alonso Quesada.

   Finally to finish the journey we’ll go to ‘ Las Nieves’ port where we’ll taste the fresh fish and will take a bath with the breathtaking views of the cliff of Tamadaba.

Healthy recipes

Written by Sara Gutiérrez

Nowadays it’s really popular to have healthy meals but a lot of people think that healthy food doesn’t taste good. This is usually thought because the idea they have of vegetables:   something without flavor. However, if you learn how to prepare them eating healthy food  won’t seem so painful anymore. That’s the reason why today I’m going to show you some healthy meals that are tasty and easy to prepare.

SERIES, THE GOLDEN AGE.

Written by Carmen G.Benítez.

Can you imagine entertainment without watching series? .The consumption of TV series has been growing over the years. Never there have been more series in the history of television than in 2015. The success of the series lies mainly in the great diversity of genres; there are series for all tastes (zombies, superheroes, and villains) and ages.

original

This success can be explained because of several reasons, the first reason I see is there are new ways of watching series. Watching TV series’ on the internet is a popular past-time. As a result, one does not need to download them, because streaming the series could be legal, easier and quicker. Yomvi is a well known platform for watching your favorite series.  Thousands of series and new episodes are available for streaming.  Furthermore, Netflix is a monthly online television service; currently it has more than 60 million users. Both of them are platforms of online television in which you can choose where and when you see TV.

Apart from that, let me show you a new term; Spin- off .A spin -off in television is a new series which contains characters, a different character or theme elements from a previous series. For example “Better call Saul” is a spin off from” Breaking Bad”.

Finally, today I am going to recommend you Outlander .It is the first in a series of eight historical multi-genre novels by Diana Gabaldon. It is a mix of historical, romance, adventure, and science fiction/fantasy elements.  It is an entertaining and gripping series and it has just finished the first season, so hurry up in order to watch the second season soon.

Looking forward to finding that peaceful place to enjoy as a local citizen?

I think the Canary Islands is the answer to all your wishes.

 

Nowadays  it is very easy to get lost when we are booking our holiday.  There are too many hunters who look for the best businesses, such as tour operators, agencies or intermediaries. For this reason,  we visit forums or web pages where we can find the opinion of someone else.

To help you choosing the best trip destination I will show a little bit of the place where I live, so it is you who decides. It is called Canary Islands, the Spanish paradise, long time ago we were known as “The Lucky Islands”.

We enjoy fabulous weather all over the year. It is 26 degrees roughly almost most of the time and it rarely rains. In here, you will find one of the best sunsets in the world.

 

Apart from our beautiful beaches you can enjoy the attractive view in the forest forest. High mountains that, in clear days, act as balconies from where you can see the rest of the archipelago.

 

If you are a food passionate I am sure you will be delighted with our lovely traditional dishes. Fresh, juicy and tasty vegetables make up our diet.

For these and many more reasons, you might want to visit The Canaries.

Do not let anyone tell you about it.

 

 

The illness is quite another matter!

Written by Piergiorgio Pallara

“Why do we fall ill?”, ” What is the illness?”. These are two usual key questions. Thanks to the 5 biological laws discovered by Doctor Hamer and named “New Germanic Medicine”, now we are able not only to know the whys (etiology) and the wherefores (pathogenesis) of the illness, but we can also answer to a third question: “why has it happened exactly to me?”.

The beginning of any illness: the DHS

What causes the illnesses? No external agent, no debit immunological system, no genetic distortion, but something extremely precise defined “biological conflict”. According to this new paradigm any illness is the result of an acute, unexpected, dramatic and lonely lived shock (DHS).

DHS: the keystone of this new paradigm

When DHS happen, one or more programs selected by the deepest feelings lived and arranged by the nature to cope with the unexpected plight, start. Three levels are involved and act simultaneously: psyche, brain and organ.

The so-called “illnesses” show two different phases

As soon as DHS occurs the eutonia ceases. A sympathecotony totally asymptomatic phase (CA) begins. Heart rhythm and blood speed are high and noradrenaline is released. If this conflict reaches a solution (CL), it starts a vagotonic phase of re-establishment (PCL). It is characterized by weariness, pain, slackening of breath rhythm, coming back of appetite, fever. At the end of the whole process normothony returns and we are well again.

Conclusions

All this implies a totally change in our point of view. Getting out of a disease in time now it’s your own choice.

Discovering our star

How much do we know about our star? What do we know of the light that reaches us? These questions are connected to each other and we going to talk about our star, the Sun.

But… (What do we know?)

We know that the Sun is only a star among millions of stars that inhabit our galaxy, the Milky Way. The Sun is at a distance of 27.000 light-years from the galaxy centre and has two movements: rotation and revolution.

Another important characteristic of the Sun it is its mass and radius. Through this data guess how big it is if we compare it with the Earth. Its radius is 6,96*103km and its mass is 2*103kg, about 333.400 the mass of the Earth.

The Sun has other phenomena such as coronal mass ejections, solar winds or sunspots, but in this post we going to talk about coronal mass ejections.

Coronal mass ejections are explosions where the Sun ejects solar material and particles with a lot of energy. These explosions are a bit dangerous when they arrive at the Earth because they can disrupt communications and cause damage to satellites. When solar particles reach the Earth we can see them at the phenomenon known as aurora.

 Although it appears that we know the Sun, we really do not know many of its secrets. In the following posts, we will talk about another phenomenon and little by little we will improve our knowledge about our star.
