Catalonia and game theory

“Sovereignty, although it won at the polls, would always lose out by accepting the legitimacy of the Government of Spain” Lluís Vicent Safont, corresponding academician for Andorra of the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED), makes an interesting statement of the struggle between sovereignty and independence in Catalonia through the game theory developed by the Nobel laureate in Economics John Nash in the article “El procés: eleccions o no, repressió o no” (The process: Elections or not. Repression or not), published last November 3 by the Diari d’Andorra. Reducing the players to two, represented by the independence bloc...

The threat of noroviruses

“The great outbreak of gastroenteritis in Barcelona suggests that the management of the microbial risks of mineral waters could benefit from an additional analysis of the relevant viral pathogens” Albert Bosch, full academician and president of the Experimental Sciences Section of the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED), argues in an article signed together with other specialists in the scientific journal Emerging Infectious Diseases that the bacterial analysis protocols that are currently carried out to guarantee the consumption of beverages and foods should include other relevant viral pathogens, such as noroviruses.

Spiritual canticle

David Jou, full academician and member of the Governing Board of the Royal European Academy of Doctors-Barcelona 1914 (RAED), will present on November 27 at the Claret bookstore in Barcelona (Roger de Llúria, 5) his latest work, the poems book “Cant Espiritual” (Spiritual Canticle), that closes a cycle of five books of religious poetry of his own authorship. The presentation will be held at 7:30 pm and will be directed by American writer and literary critic Sam Abrams. “Cant Espiritual” completes a series of five poetry books published over the last five years “Poemes sobre ciència i fe” (Poems about science and faith) (2013), “Poemes de Nadal i de Setmana Santa” (Christmas and Easter Poems) (2014), “La mística dels dies” (The mystique of the days) (2015), “Cartografies de Déu” (Cartographies of God) (2016) and now this “Cant Espiritual” (2017). All of them start from a Christian inspiration, especially evident, but approach a more general perspective when dealing with the themes of the relationship between science and faith, mysticism and interreligious dialogue between Judaism, Christianity and Islam. The “Cant Espiritual” of Jou is placed in the long tradition of Catalan spiritual canticles, studied in considerable detail by Sam Abrams. Although the most well-known spiritual canticle in this tradition is that of Joan Maragall, we must not forget those of Ausiàs March and Josep Palau i Fabre, especially appreciated by Jou....
