The Fediverse is great thanks to things like the hashtag. Here goes mine!

I can help with:

- Baking: bread and cakes including sourdough

- Academic writing: LaTeX and bibliography management

- College level mechanical engineering (I teach at uni!): vibration, noise, structures, material properties and the like. Also numerical methods, specially finite elements.

- Spanish: I'm a native 😊

Feel free to ask about anything and I'll try to help.

Now that I'm reading so many I realised that I never introduced myself here!

I'm a researcher in applied mechanics, blogger and home baker. I'm obsessed with sourdough bread and free software and paint and knit whenever I can.

My objective for 2018 is learning to play the mandolin :D

I had to write a short essay about robotisation in the Italian exam and basically my whole argumentation was:

seize the means of production.

I can't stop doing the Politics.

I gave my first online class today: it was me talking to the vacuum.

It was already difficult to involve the students, but in this format is almost impossible.

As I live in a permanent adventure, I talked to a very passionate beekeeper today.

He said: These animals do a wonderful work for humanity and we must protect them 🐝

De Haiku Barcelona:

Llueve y llueve
por mi aldea natal

My parents have two medlar trees and it looks like they'll produce an enormous harvest.

They don't usually pick them because they don't know what to do with them, but this year I'd like to experiment a bit.

Anyone has ideas or recipes to use them?


Harvest day!

I may produce some wine and jam to bear better with return to work.

Since the radishes sprouted, there are no caterpillars in the Galician cabbages: it looks like they prefer the tender radish leaves.

This is good news taking into account the radishes grow superfast, can stand a little bit of chewing and are far from the cabbages.

I may plant some more as a distraction crop!

Un saludo a mis profes de universidad que estarán como yo intentando encajar el temario en unas horas de clase reducidas y en medio de una brutal incertidumbre.

Recordad cuando no íbamos a clase y no pasaba nada, nos sacamos la carrera igual.

Devo studiare italiano perché ho l'esame tra 15 giorni. Per fare pratica, ho cominciato a guardare video sulla coltivazione di verdure e adesso non posso smettere 😅

BTW: I'm restudying because I have to teach the stuff and the notes are really hard going!

If any of you knows of any enjoyable material (e.g. visual, related to real world...) for learning differential equations, they would make me and my students a great favour by sharing it ❤️

Studying Differential Equations at 18 vs restudying at 30.

The same table, though.

Music Monday! This week, arpeggios (and note that next week it will be season finale!). I had mentioned before that chords are three or more notes played at the same time, eg. if you play E, G, and B at the same time, you are playing an E minor chord (try playing the three notes separately, and then press the "Highlight" button to play the chord):



Tengo el doble de membrillos que el año pasado y el año pasado hice cinco kilos de dulce de membrillo (y averigüé que algunos lo llamáis carne de membrillo 😍).

¡¡¡Finalmente vamos a organizar una sala sobre Derechos Digitales, Privacidad en Internet y Seguridad Informática dentro de #esLibre2020 @eslibre !!!

El planteamiento será similar al que veníamos realizando para las #JASYP estos años, pero adaptándonos al formato del congreso.

Pues he encontrado pruebas físicas de que allá por el 97-98 el colegio nos llevó de excursión al Telepizza --- entiendo que para que nos hiciéramos una idea de nuestro futuro laboral.

Que lo cuento y la gente no se lo cree.

Hey, Fedigardeners, I have a question for you!

How do you store seeds?

I'm making paper envelopes for every seed type, writing what's inside and the harvest date on them and storing them in a box in the basement.

Am I missing something or can do something differently/better?

Also, I like planting radishes because of the sound of the Spanish word for them: rábano.

I can go around them singing:

Rá - bano 🎶
Rá - bano 🎶
Rá - bano 🎶

Looks like the radish seeds I collected are viable. I'm going to wait a little bit to check what kind of radish they produce and, if everything goes well, start sharing them with people around as I have several hundreds of them.

The part I like the most about these seeds is that I received the original ones from a coworker that got them as a present in a promotion in the supermarket!

Next time I see her I'll give her some radishes 👏
