We are learning reported speech in Italian class and we have a quote from Gramsci to convert which reminded me of this song:
The pic shows the quote that says: "Odio gli indifferenti. Credo che vivere voglia dire essere partigiani. Chi vive veramente no può non essere cittadino e partigiano. L'indifferenza è abulia, è parassitismo, è vigliaccheria, non è vita. Perciò odio gli indifferenti."
Also features my fantastic handwriting 😂
My city is invaded by tourists, Easter processions and political propaganda so I'm baking bread and watching the fennel bulb grow.
There goes a pic of it so you can watch it grow with me!
(I'm using an app now and I can't the caption to the image: it shows the fennel with some rocket plants in the background)
Food (vegan) + recipe! Show more
I produced extrathick vegan hot chocolate and I feel very accomplished 💜
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 tablespoon pure cocoa
- 2 tablespoons corn starch
I mixed everything very well and brought it to boil at maximum heat, then cooked it a little bit more mixing continously over medium heat until it thickened. I didn't use sugar because the almond milk was already sweetened.
The pic shows the cup filled with the hot chocolate with a bit of cinnamon on top.
Food (bread) Show more
The experiment turned up well! I used oat porridge to make the bread softer because I was in a hurry and couldn't ferment it for long.
Just came from an exhibition about the role of women in Basque industry. It's incredible how we've been sistematically erased from history, renaming our inventions, "liberating" us from the hard work of industry.
Studying the past from a feminist perspective is essential.
In the pic there is a model of a Bessemer converted from the beginning of the XX century. The machine that allowed for the industrialisation in my region.
PhD life Show more
Just found this poster by Dr Zoe Ayres that I think represents accurately the life a of PhD students.
It has pretty good advice as well!
Thanks to @UnclearFuture we have the source so it can be enlarged to see the tiny letters 😍
I think I told you we're making presentations about women in Italian class.
Last time a classmate talked about Luisa Spagnoli, a really interesting businesswoman and inventor, creator of the famous chocolates called Baci (kisses) that come with a little love message.
To finish the presentation, she gave us some to try, taken by her mother-in-law from Rome! She, of course, received a great applause.
