Driving on the left

twitter: @eugenio_fouz

Long read: driving on the left side of the road: 


"About a 35% of the world population drives on the left, and the countries that do are mostly old British colonies. This strange quirk perplexes the rest of the world, but there is a perfectly good reason. 

In the past, almost everybody travelled on the left side of the road because that was the most sensible option for feudal, violent societies. Since most people are right-handed, swordsmen preferred to keep to the left in order to have their right arm nearer to an opponent and their scabbard further from him.

Entre el móvil y el anacronismo educativo
por Ignacio A. Castillo

"El 70% de los centros escolares de la provincia no permite que sus alumnos usen sus teléfonos en el ámbito escolar, pese a que cada vez son más los docentes que lo defienden como herramienta didáctica
10.09.2018 | 23:41 | ignacio a. castillo | Málaga
En la era digital, los smartphones se han convertido en una herramienta versátil y casi imprescindible. Casi todos llevamos uno en el bolsillo. Nos permiten estar conectados con cualquier lugar del mundo y al instante. Sirven hasta para llamar por teléfono, aunque las miles de aplicaciones que hay disponibles, de todo tipo, hagan dudar del sentido primitivo de su existencia. El ser humano sigue teniendo la necesidad de comunicarse con los demás. Solo que las formas de hacerlo han ido cambiando a lo largo de la historia." (...)
