Ricardo Alós Velert – En memoria del doctor Jesús Novella Llopis

Por |noviembre 14th, 2018|

El pasado 27 de mayo de 2008 falleció Jesús Novella Llopis, médico, militar y amigo del que suscribe. Ninguna institución ha manifestado públicamente sus condolencias. Yo, que he sido su subalterno como alférez médico y su compañero médico en la Clínica del Rosario durante 18 años me siento en el deber de dedicarle unas palabras […]

Jonathan Glancey – Livio Dante Porta – Engineer who transformed steam technology

The Guardian, 2 August 2003

<<<

The steam railway locomotive still works hard for a living across great tracts of China. It labours largely behind the scenes in Poland – and in Cuba, Zimbabwe and other pockets of the developing world. It climbs mountains, with tourists in tow, in Switzerland, the United States and Wales.

And now it is making a cautious return. A new generation of low-emission, thermally efficient, low-maintenance steam locomotives is being developed concurrently in Britain, Japan, Switzerland and the US that will offer a romantic, and surprisingly efficient alternative at the margin of railway operations. That new steam is being developed at all is due largely to the inspirational career of the Argentinian locomotive engineer, Livio Dante Porta, who has died aged 81.

I’m saddened to hear

I was lucky enough

to meet her in person when she was

the author Guest of Honor

I gave her one of my drawings

La lengua vasca tiene una palabra, “huts”,

que expresa algo que obsesionó a Jorge Oteiza,

uno de los escultores españoles más grandes del siglo XX.

“Huts” es un vacío, la ausencia

de algo que se desea ardientemente;

un fallo, la fabricación de un hueco. […]

Michael Mullan – Jorge Oteiza – Obituary

The Independent, 10 April 2003

The Basque language has a word, “huts”, expressing something that obsessed Jorge Oteiza, one of the greatest Spanish sculptors of the 20th century. “Huts” means a vacuum, the absence of something yearned for; a flaw, a hollowing-out.
Oteiza made sculptures to frame empty spaces, having decided that sculpture was not about the shapes of things but about the spaces within and around them. Although he formally abandoned his artistic discipline in 1959, he is now winning wider recognition as a figure to be ranked with Eduardo Chillida, Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí and few others.  […]

Michael Mullan – Professor Ramon Margalef López, Catalan pioneer of scientific ecology

Por |septiembre 9th, 2017|

<<<

Ecology is recognised today as

one of the main scientific disciplines at humanity’s disposal

in confronting the challenges of the future.

This is due in no small measure to six decades of work by

Ramon Margalef,

the Catalan scientist who has died aged 85,

and whose name is invoked whenever

someone measuring biodiversity within an ecosystem

applies one of their key tools:

the Margalef Index. […]
