SUPERIORITY/JAKVERD

Don Alfredo, much has been said and written about the intelligence of the human being and his consequent superiority over all living beings. Tell me, what have you heard that is a reasonable and logical version of this point?

R. Don Jak, a version that meets your requirements, which are mine, to be reasonable and logical, is that of the contemporary philosopher Yuval Harari who shares with us that: “Today, humans completely dominate the planet, not because individual human is far more intelligent and agile than the individual chimpanzee or wolf, but because Homo sapiens is the only species on earth capable of flexibly cooperating in large numbers. Obviously intelligence and tool making were also very important. But if humans hadn’t learned to cooperate flexibly in large numbers, our cunning brains and deft hands would still be chipping away at stone instead of fissuring the uranium atom.”

The ability to cooperate on a large scale. As Hillary Clinton said with the title of her book: It takes a village.

ART

What is considered the greatest work of art in the world?

A. How about one that is 2.4 kilometers long and 0.8 kilometers wide? American artist Michael Heizer was just 27 years old when he began his masterpiece, titled City, in the high desert of Lincoln County, Nevada, in 1972. Once completed, five decades later, it is arguably the greatest contemporary work of art in the world. planet, according to ARTNews.

City is a complex of large sculptures made entirely of cheap materials: concrete and rock mined on site. The project cost around $40 million and took 50 years to complete. At first, Heizer financed it all himself, but as rumors spread around the huge mind-boggling sculpture Heizer was building in the middle of nowhere, 165 miles north of Las Vegas, grants and donations from individual customers began to pour in. get.

SUBJECTS/EMBETH HERNÁNDEZ

In one of your past columns someone, I don’t remember if it was you or a reader, talked about courses that schools had to teach, apart from the core subjects. Here’s my list, in case you think it’s worth reading by your readers.

Subjects:

-Basic psychological maintenance of mental health.

-Basic sociological humor behaviour.

-Media literacy.

-Prices of shares and other investments.

-How banking, credit and credit cards work.

-Taxes.

-First aid, security, personal defense.

-Navigating our health and medical insurance system.

R. Doña Embeth, totally in agreement with your collaboration. Between those mentioned above and these, it seems to me that our school system is leaving a very costly gap when it comes to preparation for real, everyday life. Thanks.

PILLS AND PILLS

Like how long do pills and pills take to dissolve in the stomach?

A. In general, most medications take about 30 minutes to dissolve. When a medicine is coated with a special coating, which can help protect the medicine from stomach acids, it can often take longer to reach the bloodstream.
