The local elementary school, named after Emanuel Lasker, is the only public school in Germany which teaches chess as part of the curriculum, and it had done so since 1823; just as the Ströbeck secondary school, which was closed in 2004, due to too few pupils.

“The idea that rising blood pressure is a result of aging is a widely held belief in cardiology, but our findings add to evidence that rising blood pressure may be an avoidable consequence of Western diet and lifestyle rather than aging itself,”

Study of Two Tribes Sheds Light on Role of Western-Influenced Diet in Blood Pressure

Tribe with no Western dietary influences had no increase in blood pressure with advancing age, while neighboring tribe with modest exposure to Western diet, including processed foods, did have an increase

“This age-related rise in blood pressure begins in early childhood—which suggests that early childhood may be a ‘window of opportunity’ for lifestyle interventions to prevent later rises in blood pressure,” Mueller says.

To put these findings in context, in the U.S. systolic blood pressure rises by about 1.5 mm Hg and 1.9 mm Hg per year among boys and girls, respectively, and 0.6 mm Hg per year among adults.

Un bell'articolo dell'altro ieri di Alessandro D'Avenia sull'educazione

Trentacinque minuti per crescere (Corriere della Sera)

Mai come oggi l’educazione dispone di così tanti studi e mezzi, eppure mai come oggi educare sembra esser diventato difficile. Un paradosso che ricorda un apologo di Borges.
