New Technologies

Experts warn that Spanish universities serve not enough technological progress in relation to medicine. They advocate to modify the current system so that medical schools teach a formation capable of meeting the challenges of today and, above all, of the future. The doctor away Pazos, of the University of A Coruna, Coordinator of a Conference on Biomedical Informatics and personalized medicine that have been held in the corunesa town of Padron, warned of poor training in new technologies of the students of medicine in Spain. In Spain is being not offered adequate training to physicians to meet the needs of the practice of medicine today and of the future, Pazos said in a telephone interview coinciding with the celebration of the 4th International Symposium on Biomedical Informatics in Europe.That meeting was attended by experts from various European countries, mainly in the Iberian Peninsula, and United States. Any doctor spends hours and hours at the computer, said Pazos, who lamented that the Spanish universities not addressed sufficiently technological progress and the challenges posed to the future exercise of that profession. Some studies underline the inadequate technological formation of students in medicine and the important gaps in knowledge of genomics, legislation or ethics, said Pazos, Professor of computer science and Artificial Intelligence and director of the Department of information technologies and the communication of the University of A Coruna.The challenges of today and of the future stressed that it is necessary to sensitize public opinion and the authorities change the current system so that medical schools teach a formation capable of meeting the challenges of today and, above all, of the future. He stressed that some large U.S. universities have established alliances, among which highlighted the of Harvard with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, both based in the city of Boston.

Commercial results therefore advocated giving a shift towards this new medicine of the future that requires preparation more open to other areas in which new diagnostics, treatments, drugs or therapies will be developed. Pazos noted that in Spain, as in the whole of Europe, there are research groups, with aid from public institutions, but regretted missing the last link in the chain that will allow patenting and reap the commercial results of these discoveries. There is a very good scientific production in Europe, but prevails the paradox that there is not a business sector willing to assume risk, nor in Galicia and Spain to commercialize and patenting, he noted.

Black Witches Dress

According to experts in equality, teachers should control the color which is associated with some characters such as fairies or witches. The key is that children do not associate negative with dark colors. Witches should not characterize as the ugly and evil old woman with his beak hat and who wears black. That’s what say several experts on equality since, according to the British magazine about childhood Nursery World, it incites a racist message from a young age. Instead, these experts believe that already kindergartens teachers should check the boxes of toys dolls and replace pointed black hat of a witch with a pink as well as change the color of dresses of fairies, usually shades pastel, by others more obscure. Anne O Connor, an expert in equality and diversity, points out other basic material in schools, controversial in his view: the white sheet. According to this exprofesora should be provided to children folios that were not white so that your drawings and paints containing all ranges of color meat, thus reflecting the diversity of the human race. Finally, encourages teachers to that when students ask them by your favorite color black or brown respond candidly.

According to these recommendations of the experts, children learn from very small to express their negative and discriminatory views about the color of the skin. Thus, the objective is that children associate also from the outset dark colors to positive images. Experiment with children another investigation, in this case by Professor Lord Winston puts to the test how children four years may have racist views. In this experiment, children were subjected to a facial recognition with images of women, men, boys and girls. Only one of the faces of each sequence corresponded to a white person.

The test consisted in asking the children that they chose the face of the person who would want as a friend and the person that your view could be stuck in problems. The majority of Caucasian children associated with positive qualities with photographs of Caucasians, and the same thing happened with black children. On the contrary, people whose skin tone was darker than were seen as problematic. Contrary view, however, not everyone agrees with this theory of color. Margaret Morrissey, spokesperson for the Association Parents Outloud, pointing to the obsession of these experts: I am sure that they know very well the field of childhood, but seem to be obsessed with color and strive to make everyone is obsessed with this also. The fact of not allowing that toy witches dress black doesn’t make sense, would have to do the same with the black sheep, adds Morrisey.
