Més que un arbre de Nadal

No és un arbre. És una estructura lluminosa. No és el més alt de l’univers, ni d’Espanya. Costa diners. És a prop d’uns barris ben pobres i d’una ciutat amb moltes necessitats, i només es posa a major glòria de l’alcalde. Nadal és cultura i tradició, i no consum desmesurat i incentivat amb diners públics…

La estima que le tengo a Xavier Casinos, a quien leo en su serie de artículos sobre la Barcelona Secreta en La Vanguardia, me anima a escribir para contradecirlo por otro artículo que publicó en este medio que compartimos y hablaba de las limitaciones que podía tener transformar oficinas en desuso de Barcelona en viviendas.

Quiet. The title of the article seeks interest (the click). It will be another thing if the hard-working reader gets to read everything that I now propose to say about something as convoluted and complex as the Metropolitan Urban Master Plan (PDUM) that should replace the General Metropolitan Plan (PGM) of 1976. And it is

It is normal for us to feel proud of our children, siblings or relatives who live outside the country and who work there after having spent time studying a master’s degree, a doctorate or simply because they have accepted a better job than the one they had here. Being able to say that you have

By bike… it depends!

The shared bicycle service that the Barcelona metropolitan area has launched, which arrived in Badalona just before the municipal elections, fails more than a fair shotgun. And I say this, despite, because I subscribed the first day, and because I have used it until, and I’m sorry, it has ceased to be a reliable service.

El día que Línea me pidió un artículo sobre los resultados electorales en Badalona, pensé que podría hacer algo de historia y que era una ocasión para explicar algo que interesadamente continúa en el imaginario de algunos pequeños espacios políticos de Badalona. Y es que hay gente, todavía, que piensa que la “culpa” de los

Badalona will bury the highway and make a city. Gone are 20 years of discussions about what to do, and the new government has rejected the proposal made by the Metropolitan Area to create a “metropolitan greenway” for, according to the mayor, “little ambitious”. The agreement of the Badalona City Council is a commitment to

Writing an article about this essential resource and inadvertently – which I don’t want to – criticize the policy will not be easy. I will try to do so, above all, because I come from politics, and I am sure, convinced, that those who govern water today do not want to have to cut it

The price of the city

A person who works full-time should be paid enough to sustain themselves with dignity. Right now this is not the case. This is indicated by the study published by the AMB and the KSNET consultancy where the reference metropolitan salary (SMR) of the Barcelona metropolitan area (AMB) is calculated for 2022. This indicator puts figures

Artificial intelligence

A few weeks ago, Microsoft bought ChatGPT to integrate this Conversational artificial intelligence (AI) into its products. A Conversational AI is a software that you can ask anything, it looks for it on the internet, and it answers you. “ChapGPT, give me a 500-word essay on the industrial revolution for 4th ESO”. He does it
