Are there aliens? BEAKUS knows it.

Are there aliens? Beakus knows it

Life began on the Earth around 3.5 billion years ago. Has the same thing happened somewhere else in the universe? On an icy moon? On a planet in the Goldilocks zone of a distant star? Imagine if hypothetical aliens were looking for signs of life in our solar system. How might they investigate us from so far away? BEAKUS knows how to explain it. Read more

What do you think about this piece of art? Do you like it? I love it. I am very impressed by this talented artist.

I am an art lover. Last February I visited for the first time ARCOmadrid 2018, the International Contemporary Art Fair focus on the latest artistic trends. It was a pleasure to walk through all the incredible art galleries,  a very interesting selection of contemporary art made by the best art-galleries in the world.

I enjoyed it a lot, specially Juan Genoves works, and the sculptural ensemble titled Aleppo by Francisco Leiro. It was one of the most incredible personal experiences in my whole life.

And at the end of that day I discovered Leo Nar Do paints.

THE KID SHOULD SEE THIS blog

You know that around here we are always looking to approach our interests and inquisitiveness to our little ones. We do not believe in a world for kids, but in kids living the same world as we do and enjoying it.

I recently read an article with declarations from actress Reese Witherspoon where she states that the media world, and maybe the world in general, does not understand the full spectrum of the female experience.

If I have to define myself, I do not want to use mum as my first and only attribute, and this is definitively  how I want my children to perceive it.  I am an engineer, a traveler, a curious person, a photography addict, a continuous learner, a mum, and many other things that define myself at the same level, without having to choose only one or categorising one in front of the other.

We do not believe in tags: “mum’s blogs, kid’s content“, but in opening our mind to everything that can interest us and fulfill our needs to learn. As Reese says: “Women want real substance and premium thought-provoking, well-made content” . I will add that men and children need that too. No genders, race or age involved in such predicament.

This is why I want to introduce you Rion Nakaya, a design director, video producer and lifelong learner who loves storytelling, sustainable tech, well-designed spaces, and wandering the halls of small science museums. She is mum of 2 kids and founder of TKSST (The Kid Should See This) a video blog with content that children love, but that it has not been developed with them in mind. You are going to love it!

Come and see.

PIN TAM POM or how to approach children to design

Now that the children can enjoy long days of doing nothing, there is always a moment in the day when they run out of ideas and everything seems boring. I really like having something simple and creative, able to lit a spark in them, so they create stories and enjoy doing it.

Let’s admit it, it is not always as ideal as I say, but the truth is that once they are engaged, they do not want to stop. This usually happens when I offer them something simple, not half-prepared and I do not give them rules or ask them to create something specific. This is the reason why I love so much the proposals from Clara and Julia , Pin Tam Pon.
