Another spanish saying and proverb 67
26 April 2016

      Today, I would like to tell, you, a well-known saying in Spain, which reads as follows: "Al pie del cañón" = "Ready for whatever may come".

     This saying means staying, tirelessly, that --labor care, occupation,. deber--, which is entrusted. Thus, Agustina de Aragon, the legendary female from the site of Zaragoza, who cared, undaunted, giving fire, the guns of Defense, twice came to meet this adverbial. "Let´s see!. There was so much need, willy-nilly, I had to stand ready for whatever may come.".

Agustina de Aragón

      Well, I hope that you have liked this saying --although perhaps you knew a similar than this one--.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Luis.

Two Spaniards invent glasses for blind people
25 April 2016

        Today, I should like to talk you about an important news: “A Spanish company invent a glasses for blind people”. I think that it is a very important advance, in order that this people do not need the help by a cane or a guide dog.

      The Spanish company “Quality Objects”  has created a prototype augmented reality glasses for people with blindness or low visibility that turn obstacles into "three-dimensional sound", with which its creators (Antonio Quesada and Miguel Benages, Director of the ONCE –Organizacion Nacional de Ciegos de España = National Organization of the Blind of Spain--) intend to supplement or even "replace" other methods of support, as cane or guide dog, as explained by the company responsible for the invention.

Antonio Quesada

Miguel Benages

      Thus, new glasses 'Retriever', connected to a smartphone with Android operating system, emit sounds to different tones and different frequencies, to warn the wearer of the situation of the obstacles and the distance, at which they are located. To do this, the lenses include sensors similar to those, used by modern cars to help park, through a "three-dimensional sound image", and incorporate gyroscope, compass and GPS, to guide blind people.

      In this way, the new device will be able not only to guide the person, to a specific location, but also to detect furniture and stairs, avoid branches at head height, avoid obstacles, as lampposts or trees, and walk parallel to a wall, "similarly to the way a bat in the dark", as indicated by the Director of “Quality Objects”, César Carralero, who has indicated that it will be necessary for users to receive "a simple hand training from professionals".

      In addition, he explained that the model will incorporate an emergency button, to connect to a service of assistance and rescue, if necessary, and it could prove "very useful", for the elderly, as they have indicated.

      Its creators hope to start marketing the virtual reality glasses, from next May, for a price, as they have announced, "it will not exceed 200 euros", through specialized vision centres.

      I have watched a video, in which, they explain you how this glasses works. If you want to watch this video, please click on the link below:

http://www.antena3.com/programas/el-hormiguero/secciones/ciencia-marron/invento-que-permitira-ciegos-ver-oidos_2016041400304.html

Marron: “We always try to bring the latest of the latest, in innovation and technology, and, today, we bring something wonderful, apart it gives much little pleasure, when it is also Spanish. So we bring a Spanish invention, it is still a prototype;  but, in the future, it will make blind people can move, independent, and can locate objects, Right?. In order that you understand it, the system is called "Eyesynth" and it works very much similar to what would be the way of guided bats, Right?. With a viewer, it locates the objects, which turns into a sound, that goes through the cochlear system; ie, it goes through the head bone, and this makes you can get an idea of the size of the object, the distance that it is, even the form that it has, Right?”.

Pablo Motos (The presenter of the programme "El Hormiguero"): “I have seen, with this prototype, --now, we will see a demo and we will see some things, Right?-- , a total blind going through the forest, locating trees, untouched and, if he wanted, touching trees”

Marron: “It is truly wonderful. In order that you all understand it, first we are going to make a simulation, Right?, and for it, is going into one of its inventors, who is Antonio, please a big hand for Antonio ......... Antonio Quesada ... And I think .... I would like to try it Oscar, directly, if you are on right ...”

Pablo Motos: “Try it a little bit how works the……”

Marron: “Look: we are going to put this viewer on you……”

Pablo: “I think these glasses are the complement that you need .......”

Marron: “Right?. Now, what you are seeing is a simulation, three-dimensional, in a room, Right?, and they are going to put you different objects ... look .......... Do you see it?, he has put you a sphere .........”

Antonio: “Make the gesture of no……, sweep with the head….., very well……go sweeping…..The sound is soft, it is a round sound, as I say, Right? .... If we put a cube now ....... it is much harder”

Pablo Motos: “Turn to one side and to the other one......”

Marron: “Suddenly, it cuts in the edges ...... and the sound is harder, as he said before”

Pablo Motos: “I mean, this is what he is listening ........”

Antonio: “Exactly .... Depending on the form, that he has before, the sound is softer or harder, Right? .... And, then, we have another, which is a mixture: it comes suddenly, but it is changing, according you are turning ....”

Pablo Motos: “It is fine, as a proof….. He has stayed flipped, he has stayed blocked himself…., let's take off his glasses ..... I want one for me, I want one for me ............... We are going to see the prototype, we are going to see a real experience, with a real blind, a total blind”

Marron: “Please, come into our dear friend Pablo (Paul) .... go ahead, a big hand for him .......... Pablo Cantero….. How are you, Paul ?, here is the chair to get comfortable ...., perfect .... I am going to tell you, a little bit, the story of Paul: Paul became blind when he was eleven; but, instead of becoming discouraged ......”

Pablo Motos: “What happened with you?, Why you were…….?”

Pablo Cantero: “Well, I had a brain tumor, that was detected late, it pressed the optic nerve and I stopped seeing from one day to the next, and I had to adjust my life as a seer to blind, in a matter of hours ....”

Pablo Motos: “A total blind, in a matter of hours………But you did not come down absolutely….”

Pablo Cantero: “Nothing, no ..., I, with my family, my friends, the ONCE too, well, .... all necessary support and then, the desire to continue growing .....”

Marron: “Of course; but it is not absolutely a little bit, because he studies Psychology and apart of it, he is Paralympics athlete of 100 metres and long jump ..; in fact, we have some images .......”

Pablo Motos: “Let's see the video, a moment, because you have to explain me one thing, Pablo; here, you are running to the nothing……”

Pablo Cantero: “Yes…it is the long jump. There, I am not caught with anybody ... I am guided by a person, who is yelling at me, to go I oriented to him ..... that is ...and nothing ....., I jump, when he tells me, and nothing, to space; but, I am trusting that I will fall in a soft ground”

Pablo Motos: “Already, already, already….. ..; but you maybe have had some knocks as some pianos .....”

Pablo Cantero: “Sometimes, yes ... sometimes, you go and you fall on hard and, then, to sit down on somewhere, is more complicated ....”

Pablo Motos: “And have you ever gone to whom was shouting you and you has run him over?”

Pablo Cantero: “Sometimes, I have listened a child, in the stands, and I have gone to him: Hey, do not shout ....!"

Pablo Motos: “And how do you make the races?”

Pablo Cantero: “Races with a guide; but, he goes on my side, we are taken through a rope and he goes like a mirror with me, we need to coordinate, ourselves,……. many hours of training ...”

Pablo Motos: “We are watching there….., we are seeing you the two…”

Pablo Cantero: “In addition, he has to be coordinated with me, and ,there, we are winning medals .....”

Pablo Motos: “And the mate has to be good, because if it is not a good athlete .......”

Pablo Cantero: “Of course, of course, at the end, he has also to come to train with me and hold my series and my training”

Pablo Motos: “It is fabulous your willpower and I think that this will change a bit the possibilities, because, here, in front of the table, there are some objects and, if you find it right, we are going to do a test .....”

Antonio: “First, put on you the headphones, if you want…..the headphones….”

Marron: “The cochlear system, that,we said……..”

Pablo Cantero: “That is ..., so I do not cover my ear and I can listen to you, while I listen to what they tell me, in the glasses .....”

Pablo Motos: “Through the bone, it listen the sound, that you have listened”

Marron: “And it leaves the ear free, to listen people”

Pablo Cantero: “Then, I will also can use it, in the future, on the slopes, so I will not need to be guided, by someone, and not running over children, that, anytime…….”

Pablo Motos: “How many objects would you say that there are on the table?; I remind you that Pablo is totally blind”

Marron: “Look, there we are seeing a little bit ....”

Pablo Motos: “This is what, more or less ....”

Marron: “He would be receiveing….”

Pablo Motos: “He would be receiveing……., through th sound”

Pablo Cantero: “I listen, I listen three waves, that reach to me by the cameras .... I listen it here; then, I count three objects, on the table, with different heights”

Pablo Motos: “There are three”

Pablo Cantero: “That is so”

Pablo Motos: “I would like that you took the plant”

………………silence…………………….

Pablo Cantero: “Here you have it….”

………..applause………………………

Pablo Motos: “Very well…….”

Pablo Cantero: “Also, I remember the first time, that I took something ..., of course, now I pass it to you, without touching it, and now it is normal that a blind, when he is in front of a table, he controls for the plate, such; but that of observing, without touching it, is incredible, as before said Marron, about bat: that I, without seeing no see, I am learning to fly, and this is incredible with the glasses ....”

Pablo Motos: “What at beautiful phrase that pretty .......... Very nice phrase; but you will not confuse me, because I ......”

Pablo Cantero: “While you are talking to me, I am listening to you”

Pablo Motos: “Miss, Miss: Can you repeat the question: I want the cup, the cup ..... it is somewhere on the table ....”

Pablo Cantero: “Yes, I see that there ........ I am localizing ....... I am comparing the heights ..... because I have well localized the objects .......That is……..”

…………………………………………………………………

Pablo Motos: “There, we are…..”

………..applause………………………………

Pablo Cantero: “This, I think that breakfast milk fits inside it, Right?”

Pablo Motos: “Yes, this is very rich, this is great .... Pablo, could you pass me the plate, please?, the thing is that I need to do a thing, with a plate ............... How quickly and well ....!”

Pablo Motos: “Very well ...... Hey, bravo, Antonio, and thanks for this invention, that will change the lives of a lot of people, and Pablo, the thing is ...that it is a pleasure to be with you ...., you are a tick..... thanks ..... Loud applause .....”

      Well, I hope that you have liked this news.

A new beer in the Southern Spain
15 April 2016

      Yesterday, a friend of mine told me that a new beer was made, here in Algeciras. Its name is “Levantera” and , now , I am going to explain you the reason of this name.

      The history tells that, back in the seventeenth century and, above all, the XVIII, Algeciras gained some fame, because, in their land, were cultivated vineyards, that gave wines of excellent quality, to the point that exported, by sea, to Flanders, England, France and many parts of Spain. This burgeoning viticulture activity was driven by the excellent wines, that were removed from vines, which gave some peculiarity of the winds lashing. It is said that they were called “special”. Now, three centuries later, there are not wines, but its place is being occupied by a handmade beer, which has been baptized with the name, that here, is precisely given to the characteristic east wind, blowing with special virulence the day when you have decided to go to the beach. “Levantera” is an author beer, with a firm from Algeciras, “especial” as the nickname of the people, whom it is addressed; but, also, with a clear regional vocation.

      The rubric is put by Manuel Martin, a businessman wine distribution, who appreciated the rise of handmade beer and wanted to launch a land, with which the region was identified. Manuel told the following: "After deciding to develop our own handmade beer, to analyze consumer behavior and new trends, in the market, and to detect more and more handmade beer consumed, in relation to industrial, still in time of crisis, but products are demanded more exclusive". A beer from here, for people from here. You can say that it is on the right track. A year after undertaking the complicated challenge, you can buy or take ”Levantera”, in about fifty establishments. Its driver, the owner of the recipe, is going to establish the factory in the region (now he has to make it in the province of Sevilla, 1,000 liters, 3,000 little bottles, each time) and intends to continue being introduced, with new types  --now, there is blond, toast and black, but there is in project, for example, a Mexican-- and more points of sale. Now, it can be found in Algeciras, La Linea, Los Barrios, San Roque Station, Palmones, Guadacorte, Tarifa, Sotogrande and San Roque village.

      Manuel Martin dealed (and deals) with wine distribution, in the region, and, some years ago, he realised the incipient rise of gin and tonic. He began to sell, in the region, premium gin, until the market experienced an explosion unparalleled and the competition grew to overtake it. When he realised the interest that began to awaken handmade beers, he said he would not fall into the same mistake. It would not still be good to start bringing other brands, in order that, when the market grew, he left behind himself again. Then, it came to his mind: "If the recipe and brand is mine, nobody can take it away from me", he thought. And no sooner said than done. With the help of a brewer master and the advantage given by his years of experience and contacts with the hospitality, he devised “Levantera”. A beer for the region, that has been very well received, although Martin expects that it still rootes more on people, who bet more, for a local product, that strives for excellence and is constantly evolving. Because, one of the virtues, of this type of beer, is its versatility. There are plenty of flavours, colors, aromas, that vary during the preparation and causing fans have become genuine jewelry hunters. The Surprise factor versus the industrial beer standard flavour of lifetime.

Gema Vargas-Machuca and Manuel Martín

      Initially "Levantera" is presented, in 33cl format. The price is about 2 € and they come in boxes of 12 units. In the labeled, you can read the logo, with a kind of moved letter, giving the feeling of wind and sea waves background a silhouette of the Rock of Gibraltar.

       The beer of the region contains water, yeast, barley, hops and point. That is, there is no additive, it is unpasteurized and carbonless added, it suffices that arising from the second fermentation in the bottle, resulting in a completely natural product. The fermentation, in bottle, makes it sometimes may contain turbidity or natural sediment.

      First, there was the blonde, fresher, less dense, with which searches the customer accustom the palate this type of drink, which, in Spain, is just conforming to the point that many experts speculate that, eventually, it shall replace the other alcoholic drinks; and the poor sister of wine shall cease to be it.

      The boom began, in the USA, where eight out of every hundred beers are handmade. From there, it came to Europe and, then, begins to enter Spain, with enormous force. There are already more than 150 brands, in the country, where there is no specific regulation, except health control, that any drink, that is sold, is subjected. In Spain, beer became Queen, back in 1987, but the consumer is accustomed to a standard drink, less dense, more refreshing, more affordable than the handmade, that does not just take of the looks of gourmet product.

      The blonde of “Levantera” is the bridge product to the star of the home: the toast. From there to the black, with a kind of double roasting, that makes it less dense than the industrial standard of the major brands.

      There is a special edition commemorating the centennial of Algeciras CF, that may become one of the modalities of the home.

      The “Levantera” beer was presented, the last November-13 – 2014, in the restaurant “Cepas”, in “Getares” beach, in Algeciras.

The presentation of "Levantera" in the restaurant "Cepas"

         This fact shows that this beer, which was born in the social networks, is being accepted by people, through bares and restaurants.

      Well, I hope that you have liked the idea and hope that you can taste this beer.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Another abandoned villages in the South of Spain
12 April 2016

        Today, I should like to talk you about three special abandoned villages, in the Southern Spain: Las Algamitas, La Dehesilla de Algar and El Bercial. They are in the province of Cádiz.

      The Algamitas, founded by the Túrdulos, an Iberian tribe based in the province of Cadiz. Although it appears that was initially a hostelry of passage for travelers, during Roman times, and already, in the Muslim period, is when several neighbors settled around, creating a village, calling it “Algameca”.

      After the reconquest, King Henry IV granted this land to knight Mr. Rodrigo de Rivera, was later sold by the son, Mr. Pedro de Rivera, the Marquis of Cadiz, to Mr. Rodrigo Ponce de León, on September -23 -1482, for 4,000.000 of maravedíes, until the abolition of the 'jurisdictional lordships' of the nineteenth century, it made the queen Elizabeth II granted the Algámitas the 'title villa', on March - 27 - 1852.

      However, in 1855, this amall village was alienated by a disentailment and sold, in 1874, at public auction, with a starting price of 9,215 pesetas, finally sold for 60,035 pesetas, to Mr. Francisco Suarez Márquez, a native of Algeciras and neighbor of Casas Viejas, finishing of pay as it did three times, in 1881. Since then, it is considered a private farm and currently belongs to the municipality of Medina Sidonia.

      The second abandoned village is: Dehesilla de Algar. It is a village belonging to the municipality of Jerez de la Frontera and considered one of the rural districts of the city of Jerez. Now, virtually uninhabited, from which are only preserved a few remains of houses and stables for cattle farmers.

      The Dehesilla de Algar is very near to the Arroyo de los Alamos (The Stream of Poplar).It is to the north of the village, Algar, although La Dehesilla belongs to Jerez de la Frontera.

Arroyo de los Alamos

       The third abandoned village is: El Bercial, in Rota, which is now privately owned, with some simple remains of abandoned houses and warehouses.

      I am sorry, but I have not found any image of the abandoned houses. I have onlyfound an image from the road to El Bercial.

       Well, I hope that you have liked this article.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

A Spanish expert tells us about the properties of almond tree
09 April 2016

       I should like to show you a nice video, about one of the nicer trees, that you can see in Spring: Almond tree.

      If you want to watch the video, please click on the Link below:

http://www.rtve.es/alacarta/videos/aqui-la-tierra/aqui-tierra-juan-plantas-truco-del-almendruco/3553885/

Vicente Rubio (Voice in off and Reporter): “The almonds, in blossom, are the first of the year, which give us their whiteness. Juan (a good knowledge of their properties), reminds us and gives us, in turn, a few tricks: trick of green almond.......”

A lady: “But if it is Mr. Juan Plantas……..Come up…, that from tv….”

Juan Plantas (Ethnobotanist Association Sábila): “What were you doing….strolling over here, through the park?”

The lady: “Strolling to see this one”

Juan Plantas: “Yes?, Do you know it well?”

The lady: “Well”

Juan Plantas: “Well, if you want to join us, while we speak of almond trees, mainly ..”

……….music………………………

Juan Plantas: “From almond, besides it fruits --that we all know, Who not?-- of course, you obtain oil, almond oil is obtained, and also milk, almond milk is obtained; additionally, you can use its leaves, you can use its bark....; ie, it is a tree, which practically gives us almost all, it is a generous tree. Well, a secret is that this tree is one of the best restorers of skin problems, for skin spots. We catch a mortar; we catch a handful of almonds, clean, peeled; we mash with a little orange flower water, until a baby food is made; is added a little bit more orange flower water –around 150 milliliters--; then, we strain well and squeeze and you put compresses or give it in scrubs --but especially compresses, on face--, and it is extraordinary for all skin problems: acne, spots and any other complaint that there was”

………..music…………

Juan: “The leaves and flowers can be used in infusion, and are so good for exhaustion, for excessive tiredness, for the spring asthemias, now arriving, we felt it costs us to move, it is ideal to make an infusion, with only 20 grams of leaves, per liter of water, during the day, slowly, with little sips, and that is going to be just right for us, to regain energy and recover the vigour, after winter. Scent, color ... everything is so attractive, that is continually visited by bees and other insects, that help the process of pollination”.

….music………………….

The lady: “I thought that you were older ... on TV”

Juan: “But, I thank you….But this one is work by them…., who bring me up very old, in order that I do not show off me….”

Vicente Rubio (Reporter): “Many more remedies await us, on the path plant. Somebody, tv makes fat and, to others, older ...., like Juan”.

      Well, I hope that you have liked this video.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Some Spanish researchers discover a virus in a cell against childhood cancer
07 April 2016

        I have just found a very interesting news: “A virus `hidden´ in a cell demonstrating its safety in the treatment of childhood cancer”.

      A therapy, that uses a virus "hidden" in a cell, that makes "taxi", to take it to the tumor and destroy it, while stimulating the patient's immune system, has demonstrated its safety (lack of toxicity) in children with neuroblastoma , an aggressive childhood cancer.

        Infant Jesus Children's Hospital of Madrid is the only accredited for this cell therapy virus, which is possible thanks to the collaboration with the Institute of Health “Carlos III”.

      The treatment, known “Celyvir”, consists on mesenchymal cells (obtained from bone marrow), carrying genetically modified oncolytic virus, to the areas of the tumor, to destroy it, respecting healthy cells.

      “The strategy of "Trojan Horse" is used to "hide" the virus inside the cell”, said Dr. Javier Garcia Castro, from the Unit Cell Biotechnology at the Carlos III. "We use the intrinsic ability of cells, to reach the tumor for using it as a taxi", said the researcher.

      The body tends to attack the virus, that are detected and, in this case, the aim is that the virus travel, hidden in mesenchymal cells.

      Furthermore, it has been observed that "it is produced an effect called" to the immune system, that is stimulated and, indirectly, it can also attack the primary tumor and to metastases.

      The therapy, which is administered intravenously, has already been tested in a clinical phase I trial, in which have participated 10 children and 10 adults, with refractory solid tumors, which has been proven safe, although the clinical outcomes will not be made public until the end of the year.

      The beginnings of this research go back ten years ago and, since then, the therapy has been tried as compassionate use, in 20 children, mainly with neuroblastoma, the most common childhood solid tumor, after brain tumors. This cancer mortality is 40% and increases by 90%, in cases of relapse.

      The Dr. Manuel Ramirez Orellana, coordinator of the Research Laboratory of Onco-Hematology of the “Niño Jesus Hospital”, stressed that "have tried enough cases, to have an idea, that is the most important of our therapy: it is well tolerated by patients". In fact, he explained, “the maximum toxicity was transient fever ", which, in his view, is "a great news".

      The second "important" idea is that "it can offer benefits to patients", said Dr. Ramirez, who has stated that "we have also learned that, in order that there is benefit, the immune system has to react".

      Of the 20 children, treated in the compassionate use program, in one case the tumor was removed and, ten years later, it has not recurred; in other case, the disease also disappeared, but, after six months, there was a relapse; in a child, there was a stabilization, for two years, and, in three cases, they were obtained partial results.

      The research has advanced thanks to many factors, including the design of cancer virus, called ICOVIR- 5, conducted by the Dr. Ramon Alemany, from the Institute of Biomedical Research of Bellvige.

      The next step is to conduct a Phase II study, to demonstrate the efficacy, that probably will start next year, and the results will be gotten, two years later.

      The Dr. Ramirez has said that the drug will not be marketed, until five or six years, and it in case that the results, that researchers hope, are gotten and funding is achieved.

      Meanwhile, and until there is an open clinical trial, it will continue to administer as a compassionate use "but with a little more strict criteria".

      Well, I hope that you consider this news as important as I do.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Luis.

Recipe of Ratatouille in Spain
06 April 2016

        Today, I should like to show you the recipe of the Ratatouille, typical from Spain. We name it: “Pisto”, but, it is really named “Pisto manchego” (Pisto from La Mancha, in the centre of Spain).

      The ratatouille consists on a fry-up various vegetables of variable composition.

      The word “Pisto” comes from “Pistare”, that means “meat juice”. But, other authors think that it comes from Latin: “Pistus”, that means: “Crushed”.

      But the dish is transformed, with the progressive incorporation of tomato and pepper, to the Spanish cuisine.

      Formerly, the peasants of La Mancha used products from vegetable garden; but above all: red peppers, green peppers, tomatoes and some courgettes; but the vegetables used often vary greatly depending on the area, season and local tastes, etc. However, we can say that it always takes tomato and pepper and it is also often lead onion, garlic, courgette, etc. All these ingredients are prepared cut into small dice, no more than half a centimetre. You poach vegetables, in a pan, with olive oil and, when they are ready, let stand for half an hour.    

      You can use eggplant, instead of courgette. In Mallorca, that dish is named: “Tumbet”.

      In some parts of La Mancha, you can find ratatouille, with crushed garlic with cumin.

      Well, now I am going to give you the Ingredients of my recipe: 4 medium courgettes. 2 medium tomatoes. 1 red pepper. 1 green pepper. 2 medium onions. 200 grams of Serrano ham. Olive oil. Salt.

      For its preparation, you must do the following: Place the peppers, in a baking dish, sprinkle with salt and put oil. Then, you have to put the baking dish, in the oven, at 180 degrees Celsius and roast peppers from 20 to 30 minutes . When they are to the point, cover with a kitchen towel, to sweat. Peel them, slice them and remove the seeds. Then, cut the ham in small dice and keep all.

      Peel the onions and cut into rings.

      Peel the tomatoes and courgettes, remove the seeds and cut them into pieces.

      In a saucepan saute the onions over low heat, for 10 minutes. When browned, add the pepper and 4 minutes later, the courgettes and tomatoes. Add a little bit of salt.

      Moving, constantly, and let the vegetables end up doing. It will spend about 20 minutes.

      In a saucepan, over low heat, saute the ham until golden brown .. add to skillet. Cook for about 2 minutes.

      In the end, serve hot ratatouille.

      And this one must be the result

 

      Well, I hope that you have liked this recipe and I hope that you can try to cook it.

      Until my next post, kind regards,

Luis.
