What zombies didn't teach us for covid-19


When I left cable television a couple of years ago, sickened by the abusive commercial intrusion and annoying mass production of shows with exactly the same plot, I became preoccupied with the audience's insatiable appetite for shows and movies about post-apocalypse zombies and social disintegration


In his 1993 book, "Japanese Manufacturing Techniques," Richard J. Schonberger addresses within "just-in-time" production the concepts of muri (excess), muda (waste) and mura (irregularity) as one of the principles for a quality control oriented to the worker and not to some clerk in a refrigerated office.You

With the last entry I finished spinning an idea that I have been maturing for a while, which will be the reason for today's entry. A radical stance, being I pro-vaxer and pro-health system (the opposite being anti-vaxers and those who distrust the health system), would be that the health system and its


I thought, in mid-2020, that with all this pandemic anti-vaxing groups on social networks would finally end, a subculture that disturbs me in a way that I cannot explain in words. Perhaps what disturbs me the most is that I agree with the concept of not introducing foreign or potentially harmful materials
