The Science of Cooking

La cocina es una de las primeras actividades que nació en la historia, no? Lo primero que hicieron los humanos fue comer. Durante la historia ha ido dialogando con otras disciplinas, la cocina es cocina pero dialoga con la mayoría de disciplinas. Salud, arte, ciencias diseño ecología sociología.

Translation:  Cuisine and cooking is one of the first things in history – in the history of mankind. It’s something that we’ve been doing forever, so throughout history you’ll find as well that it’s created a dialogue with other disciplines like science, health, design, sustainability.

How 'dark horses' flip the script of success and happiness

What defines a dark horse? The all-important decision to pursue fulfillment and excellence.

Big Think Books

When we first set the Dark Horse Project in motion, fulfillment was the last thing on our minds. We were hoping to uncover specific and possibly idiosyncratic study methods, learning techniques, and rehearsal regimes that dark horses used to attain excellence. Our training made us resistant to ambiguous variables that were difficult to quantify, and personal fulfillment seemed downright foggy. But our training also taught us never to ignore the evidence, no matter how much it violated our expectations.
