Te encontré en las letras que trazo, en las palabras que escribo, en las anotaciones, en los relatos, en las historias y en los poemas que compongo. Te descubrí hasta en la puntuación y en los acentos de mi prosa, en mis locuras y en mis razones, resguardada en expresiones que delatan, también, mis sentimientos e ideas, mis detalles y motivos. Te vi, a hurtadillas, en mis apuntes, entre papeles y tinta, en páginas interminables -electrónicas y de papel-, con tu aliento mágico que sopla con el aire y que recibo con la lluvia en burbujas de inspiraciones. Te miré en mis letras, abrazada de las palabras, y entendí, en consecuencia, que siempre estarás conmigo, simplemente porque una musa jamás abandona a su escritor ni un artista renuncia a quien le inspira sentimientos y razones, al escribir y al…

Life isn’t a storied house. We are all on the same level regardless of whether we were programmed to believe otherwise. One’s lineage does not define greatness. Greatness is imbued in every life. We are all human beings. © Norma Bobb-Semple 2022On the Same Level — normabobb
Tenta esquecer- me …Ser lembrado é como
evocar- se um fantasma…Deixa-me ser
o que sou, o que sempre fui, um rio que vai fluindo…
Em vão, em minhas margens cantarão as horas,
Me reclamarem de estrelas como um manto real,
me bordadeira de nuvens e de asas,
às vezes virão em mim às crianças banhar-se…
Um espelho não guarda as coisas refletidas!
E o meu destino é seguir…é seguir para o Mar, as imagens perdendo no caminho…
Deixa-me fluir, passar, cantar…
toda a tristeza dos rios é não poderem parar!
Mario Quintana. Deixe-me seguir para o mar

“What you were subjected to was terrible; it was inhumane, it was unfair, and it was heartless,” Mette Frederiksen told the six Inuit Greenlanders at a ceremony in the Danish capital, Copenhagen.
They were among 22 Inuit children sent to Denmark from Greenland in 1951 to learn Danish. It was part of a scheme to raise “model” Greenlanders to help bridge Danish and indigenous cultures.
However, the children remained separated from their families, lost their mother tongue and struggled with identity issues.
Faced with legal action, the Danish government settled and agreed to pay damages of 250,000 Danish kroner ($38,000; £28,000) to each of the six. The other 16 people involved have since passed away.
‘Further and further away’
Kristine Heinesen, 76, remembers vividly the day she was taken from her family, aged five.
“My brother rowed me out to the ship,” she recalls as she thumbs through a collection of old black-and-white photographs. “The MS Disko.”
At first she was excited, she says, as she thought she was going on a sailing trip. “But we went further and further away, and it became clear that I was not coming back.”
I missed my family, the language, the culture.
The children, all aged four to nine, were first placed in a care home and then lived with Danish foster parents.
Potential contributor to dementia burden
The study authors noted that impaired cognition is common in the months after COVID-19 infection, especially among older patients. “It is worth noting that 21% of individuals with severe cases in this cohort experienced progressive cognitive decline, suggesting that COVID-19 may cause long-lasting damage to cognition,” they wrote.
“These findings imply that the pandemic may substantially contribute to the world dementia burden in the future.”
Potential factors in post-COVID cognitive decline, the authors said, include long-term low oxygen levels, chronic systemic inflammation, and direct viral invasion of the brain and resultant neuronal damage.
“In this cohort study of COVID-19 survivors 60 years and older who were discharged from COVID-19–designated hospitals in Wuhan, China, SARS-CoV-2 infection, especially severe infection, was associated with an increase in risk of longitudinal cognitive decline,” the researchers concluded. “The findings highlight the importance of immediate measures to deal with this challenge.”
This is the case for the species Anelosimus eximius – small red spiders, native to Central and South America. They live in colonies of up to thousands of individuals and work together to build giant webs that span several meters.
When an insect (like a moth or a grasshopper) gets curled up in the web, the colony begins a synchronized attack: the spiders move towards the prey, at the same time, stopping the race a few times to ensure that they all arrive together. destiny. (You can observe the behavior in this video).
Thus, spiders are able to capture prey that is up to 700 times heavier than themselves – a better meal than could be obtained in a solo attack. But it was not yet clear how individuals of the species combine their movements.
