Empleabilidad en personas con estudios universitarios y de posgrado.

En la época de los boomers cuando la educación era escasa, tener una carrera universitaria te garantizaba un buen trabajo. Con el paso de los años, conforme el acceso a ese nivel de estudios se volvió más común, una carrera ya no te garantizaba nada, por un rato ahora tener posgrado era lo que te garantizaba un buen trabajo. Sin embargo, ahora que también hay más egresados de posgrado que antes, está llegando esta creciente idea de que tener posgrado ya no te garantiza nada tampoco. …

Explaining cancer growth and treatment from a mathematical point of view

Have you ever been interested in a topic that strands so far away from your previous studies that you feel too overwhelmed about all that you would need to learn before you can even begin to understand it? I had precisely this problem with the topic of cancer and that is why I decided to write about it.

Quick disclaimer

I am no health professional or biologist, I am a computer scientist, so my understanding (and consequently explanation) of cancer is super limited and there are many things about the disease that I haven’t even begin to understand. So even though I…

Tu amigo ¿es tu amigo, o solo lo consideras como tal?

La felicidad y la satisfacción son ideas muy complejas y están influenciadas por una gran cantidad de elementos diferentes, pero este texto solo se centrará en dos. Una de las cosas que más afecta la felicidad y la satisfacción de un individuo es la discrepancia entre sus expectativas y su realidad, en casi cualquier aspecto de la vida. Otra cosa de gran influencia es el número y la calidad de las amistades que uno cultiva a lo largo de su vida. …

It was 4:23 PM of the last day before the mid-semester break, according to the old ticking clock that hung from the wall just above the chalkboard, and as expected the students were eager to leave the room even if there was actually still some class time left. Many students even had particular techniques to exert pressure on the teachers until they let them go. Most simply started packing their things, intentionally making noise so that the teacher knew they were not paying attention anymore. Some placed their backpacks on top of their desks to make it evident they were…

It was probably somewhere around 6 in the morning when the sounds of chaos began enveloping everything. I was asleep, next to my little sister and my parents, until the movements of my sister, who was cuddling in the middle of us all, woke me up. “Did you hear that?” she asked, swinging back and forth in an effort to wake us from our slumber. The first to wake up was my father. My mom and I almost immediately followed, but none of us answered her question. “Do you hear that?” she insisted, so my father went to her in…

It was eight in the morning when rays of sunlight began sneaking through the small hole in the roof, warming up Genaro’s shoulder and slowly making their way up to Lucia’s eyes, waking them both up. Lucia and Genaro Mendez were a pretty humble couple that lived by themselves in a small house by the outskirts of the city. They had always wanted to have kids but they had never managed to have one due to a problem with Lucia’s uterus, of which they had decided never to talk about several years back. As every weekend, the woman got up…

It was around four in the afternoon when I finally decided to do it. I was with her and some other friends just chatting in the library, like the noisy teenagers we were. I excused myself and took her to a room nearby. Just the two of us, ready to do what had to be done: bring our relationship to its unavoidable end.

We had been together for a while now. She had once been a great source of pleasure in my life, but the relationship between us had become unhealthy with time. I still remember the beauty of our…

Había una vez una familia muy humilde. Constaba de un padre, una madre y una pequeña niña de 7 años llamada Amanda que siempre, absolutamente siempre, sonreía. Aunque a la vista de algún desconocido esta era simplemente una familia común y corriente, había algo que hacía a esta familia un tanto peculiar. Siempre estaban juntos y siempre estaban felices.

La casa en la que vivían era muy pequeña, constaba de una sola habitación que se encontraba completamente vacía a excepción de una vieja cama en el centro de todo. Era una cama muy básica, color blanco con flores rosas y…

Tengo antojo de ella; llevo sin probarla más de un día. La busqué con mis amigos pero no la encontraba, hasta que decidí buscarla en la cafetería. Efectivamente ahí estaba ella, inocente y tranquila junto a la caja registradora.

Me acerqué sigilosamente; la abracé sin que me viera, pero ya sabía que era yo… Sin mucho esfuerzo la levanté de su lugar y la lleve cargando hasta la banquita. La coloqué sobre la mesa y me senté junto a ella. La vi. La olí. …
