    Seeing life through the cold eyes of that Frenchman

      I remember that in the early 1980s, Jean-Paul Sartre (1905-1980) was a hot topic among young Chinese intellectuals. Speaking of Sartre, the first thing I recall is his photo of him peddling the leftist newspaper “Dyelo Narok” on the street. He is old and unattractive, hiding behind old-fashioned short-sighted glasses that look like the bottom of a wine bottle. This photo was later included in the anthology “Sartre Research” (1981) edited by Mr. Liu Mingjiu, a French literature expert.   When Sartre’s theories and works were widely disseminated in China, it was the time when the Chinese youth were struggling to get out of the spiritual ruins caused by the ten-year…

    These Green Papers Are Toxic And Could Be Deadly

      In the spring of 2019, in Delaware, USA, Dr. Melissa Teiden of the Winterthur Museum checked out an old book published in 1857 from the library. It is a guide to home decoration, and the title of the book is “Country Country Decoration-For a Tasteful Home”.   The book is beautiful, and although it is more than a century old, it still retains its bright green exterior, which complements the gilt letters and patterns.

A Japanese company has launched a delivery service called “Nap Space,” in which a van converted into a bedroom is driven to the office floor to solve the problem of nap time for office workers.

So, how to take a nap more scientifically? Is a nap a good idea? Previous studies have shown that regular naps can protect against Alzheimer’s disease by improving mental agility and consolidating memories. In addition, taking a nap…

    Gluten-free foods, to eat or not to eat?

    Is gluten just bran? The edible portion of a grain consisting, from the outside to the inside, chiefly of the bran, endosperm, and germ. The bran is the outermost edible part of wheat, which is mainly composed of dietary fiber. Gluten is a nutrient in the endosperm. The endosperm of wheat is mainly starch, but also contains gluten and glycolin, a complex of these two proteins called gluten. The word “gluten” may be new to you, but when it comes to gluten, you’re probably familiar with it. Our common gluten is actually gluten. When making dough, gluten proteins absorb water and expand, then bond to each other to form gluten,…

    British media commented on “Top Ten Scientific Advances in 2022”

      Recently, the British “Guardian” released ten major scientific advances in 2022 selected by ten scientists. Among them, China’s inhaled new crown vaccine and the use of artificial intelligence to discover antibiotics were selected.   Inhaled vaccines induce mucosal immunity and may provide long-term protection against respiratory viruses, the report said. For people with “needle phobia”, this type of vaccine is more attractive. If these new crown vaccines work as expected, the annual booster shots will soon be a thing of the past. In addition, antimicrobial drug resistance is listed by the World Health Organization as one of the top ten public health threats facing mankind. Antimicrobial peptides are recognized alternatives to…

    Sweden’s “charging road”

      In order to achieve the two goals of “be the first to become a clean energy-based country that does not use fossil fuels” and “strive to make vehicles on the road achieve zero emissions by 2030”, the Swedish government calls on the people of the country to purchase new energy electric vehicles. However, although new energy electric vehicles have the advantages of cleanliness and pollution-free, due to the far insufficient cruising range, the car often breaks down halfway, so the general public in Sweden is not interested in buying electric vehicles.   After pinpointing the “pulse” of the people in the country, the Swedish Transport Administration began to “prescribe the right…

    Live for the splendor and freedom of life

      The Middle Ages is often referred to as the era of retrogression of Western civilization. It was the execution ground for religious trials, the hell where the Black Death took 20 million lives, and the severe cold of swords and swords and endless wars.
