The Sunday Post (5th – 11th july)


lego-futbolToday is the Day: the FIFA 2010 World Cup final between Spain and The Netherlands. I know who is going to win today: Spain, of course. Despite I’m not a big fan of football (or soccer), this is a special occasion to share with friends, so I hope you enjoy the evening and sing «A por ellos, oe!»

Updated (12th july): I told you!! Spain won the WorldCup :)

But first, don’t forget to read the English brief of the week, I bet you will find some interesting things:

  • De la interrupción voluntaria del embarazo: Last week the spanish law about sexual and reproductive health and abortion was published. There are a lot of discussion in this issue, but I don’t want to say anything, just give you the text with the law, so you can read it and make your own decisions.
  • Bacteriemia Zero – video: The project «Bacteriemia Zero» is carried out in collaboration with the WHO and Spain is the demonstration country. It’s a pilot project in the NHS for the prevention of the catheter related infections in the Intensive Care Units (ICU). This post shows a training video to be sent to the participanting ICU’s.
  • Informe eEspaña 2010 (via USALbiomedica): This is a «reblog» of a post published by USALbiomedica. It was quite interesting and I wanted to try the new feature of wordpress: the «reblogging» button. This post is the result of this experiment.
  • Likeadrink.tv o aprender qué es exactamente el alcohol: This post introduce likeadrink.tv, a web from the British NHS aimed at young people who like to get wasted. This site intend to teach youth what alcohol really is, with videos, question & answers, help & advice, fact & fictions about alcohol, a «take a test» link to know your risk with alcohol (for you interest I’m a low risk drinker according to this test)
  • The Librarians – the TV Show: This is the saturday funny post. Today we can learn about a tv show called «The Librarians». Don’t miss this introduction!

The Sunday Post (28th june – 4th july)


Welcome back to my blog!

I guess this kind of post is getting popular among my bloggers friends. This is the first week in english for 2 of them: @goroji with his blog  «SobreviviRRHHé» and @gerineldo with his blog «Mi cutre blog«.  Congrats to both of you!

Let’s start:

  • Actualizando conocimientos: cómo citar blogs, twitter, e-mail (How to cite twitter, blogs or e-mail): twitter, blogs and web pages are getting popular as one of the tool to communicate and sharing information, researchers need to know how to cite this sources in their papers. In this post you will find some links to useful information about this issue.
  • Sonidos (Sounds): a really short post with a video in which you can see the reaction of a deaf baby’s CI activation at age of 8 months.
  • Clinical Queries: rediseño de la página (Clinical Queries Page Redesign): the PubMed Clinical Queries page was redesigned to filter one search by three clinical research areas. The Clinical Queries page has been reconfigured with columns to preview the first five citations of the results for the three research areas.
  • JANE (Journal Author/Name Estimator): in this post I want to introduce you JANE, a tool to find the best journal to submit your paper to get published. Try it, it’s very interesting.
  • Librarian trainer: I like to post something silly on saturdays, just for fun. This is a game to play the role of a «librarian» who has to store the books on the shelf. Tell me what is your score!
