Vamos a descubrir la increíble #Biblioteca de la Universidad #Humboldt en #Berlín 📚🌍. La Universidad de Humboldt fue fundada en 1810, es una de las más antiguas y grandes de Alemania. 

Abro 🧵 ImageImageImageImage
La #biblioteca de esta universidad es un paraíso para los amantes de los libros 📚 La universidad fue acumulando conocimiento en colecciones temáticas depositadas en bibliotecas distantes de la ciudad a lo largo de doscientos años de historia.
Para combatir la dispersión, en 2009, se construyó una nueva biblioteca central que alberga aulas y salas de reuniones. Se la denominó la Jacob-Wilhem-Grimm-Zentrum, obra del #arquitecto Max Dudler.

As you read this heart-wrenching article by @alex_n_boyd, abt Jaskirat Sidhu & his fate after #Humboldt crash, allow me to give you examples of ppl committing acts w/ the same or higher level of moral blame worthiness, but receiving little to know punishment.
1st, keep in mind that in criminal law, we focus on a person's mental state, level of intention, both in deciding whether s/o is guilty, & in sentencing. Two ppl could have the same level of moral blame worthiness, but their actions lead to different results
Former Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe failed to stop at a stop in a rural internet, hitting and killing 39-year-old Joanne Balog. He received a mere ticket for driving without due care and attention. No criminal record, no jail. Just a provincial offence.

#DatoHistórico El Colegio Alemán de Caracas (hoy Colegio Humboldt) fue creado en mayo de 1894. En MAY 1942, en plena 2ª Guerra Mundial, el gobierno de Isaías Medina Angarita lo clausuró luego de comprobarse que el centro educativo se usaba para impulsar las ideas del nazismo. ImageImage
El diario Últimas Noticias realizó una campaña exponiendo imágenes de escolares luciendo el uniforme de las juventudes hitlerianas y la presencia de dirigentes nazis en las oficinas del colegio, que a la fecha estaba ubicado en Sabana Grande. ImageImageImage
Con respecto a estadísticas (requeridas por seguidor Twitter) de exalumnos emigrados compartimos datos del director, Werner Fabisch: de 25 egresados en 2016, 22 se fueron a Alemania a realizar sus estudios superiores y sin perspectiva de regresar.

🧵 Tonight's SFI Community Lecture by 2x Miller Scholar @Andrea_Wulf begins in just a few minutes!

Follow this thread for the streaming link and highlights from the talk. (Sorry, but this recording will not be available to view afterward...)
Talk starts now with an intro by SFI Prof @C4_Computation:

Q - Flack: "Some of you might wonder how a talk on Humboldt connects to #ComplexityScience."

A - Humboldt: "Knowledge of the chain of connection....the perception of these relations."
Who was #AlexanderVonHumboldt?

"A man who was so restless he said he was chased by 10,000 pigs... He spent his entire inheritance on a five-year voyage of South America. They called him 'The Shakespeare of the Sciences.'"

Warum haben wir in #Deutschland ein Problem mit #Digitalisierung , #Bürokratie speziell in der #Verwaltung und reagieren inzwischen bei #Katastrophen so ineffektiv. Ein Erklärungsversuch mit Elementen aus der #Auftragstaktik 1/13
Bei einem Telefonat mit einem Belgier sagte mir dieser. In der Verwaltung weiss man, das die regulären #Prozesse nichts taugen, man kennt aber das #Ziel und optimiert. Deshalb ist es auch möglich fast jeden Verwaltungsgang #online abzuwickeln. 2/13
In #Deutschland dagegen ist jeder Prozessschritt und jedes #Formular geregelt und man muss faktisch Totholz /Fax Steintafel usw verwenden wenn es vorgeschrieben ist. 3/13

None of #Plato dialogues were fully translated into Arabic or Persian in the classical period - and on that we have ‘Abd al-Rahman Badawi’s classic study - a short thread on #Persian translation 1/
The lives of the two modern #Persian translators of #Plato can be rather instructive on the nature of modern #iranian intellectual history 2/
The first of these was Mahmud Sana’i (1918-1985) who attended Alborz College, later studying philosophy and literature at Tehran University and then doing a PhD in psychology in #London 3/

Otra de las disciplinas que ha tenido un importante desarrollo en México es la #Geografía🌎 que surgió en parte gracias a los viajeros y expedicionarios...👇 Image
En el siglo XVllI el Marqués de Rubí y el ingeniero Nicolás de Lafora realizaron diversos viajes 🧐 recorriendo el Golfo de México y el norte del país pasando por Zacatecas y Querétaro hasta llegar a la capital
Los viajeros descubren el camino y los cartógrafos dibujan la ruta... Tal como lo hizo #Humboldt que en 1811 publicó el “Atlas geográfico y físico del reino de la #NuevaEspaña” una representación de 20 láminas que describen el territorio mexicano de esa época. Image

En 2019, en las profundas y frías aguas del fiordo Ørstafjorden (#Noruega), el capitán Nils Baadnes y el buzo Ronald Raasch grabaron una extraña y ondulante forma esferoidal movida por las corrientes marinas.
¿De qué se trataba?
Según cuentan, les costó un poco identificar el origen de esa enorme masa mucosa que se presentaba ante sus ojos.
Hasta que una de las linternas iluminó el interior.

The #history of ideas patronizes the #colonial: “The North has ideas, the South has nature.”
