¡Gracias por este sueño!

Gracias por este sueñoNo sería complicado pronunciar un teorema que proclame que la amplia mayoría de los inventos relevantes de la historia de la humanidad acabarán convertidos tarde o temprano en armas de mil maneras retorcidas, ingeniosas y desagradables: el fuego, los metales, la radioactividad o los fármacos. Lo que ya no es tan común es que el autor del descubrimiento se acabe dando cuenta de ello. Y lo que ya no pasa casi nunca es que haga un intento más o menos cuestionable, incluso en términos filosóficos, de redención. Y que se lo tome muy, muy en serio. Este fue el caso del autor de la dinamita, el invento que tenía que revolucionar la industria de la minería (1), el químico sueco Alfred Nobel, que intuyó rápidamente que los usos militares de su invento superarían a los civiles en muy poco tiempo. El peso de la dinamita, de hecho, continúa siendo actualmente la unidad de medida de la potencia de cualquier explosivo, incluidos los nucleares.

El nou BB Construmat es cuina al Celler de Can Roca

Celler Can RocaMés de cent empreses líders del sector de la construcció van reunir-se els passats dies 28 i 30 de juny a l'Espai Mas Marroch, del Celler de Can Roca, en una trobada organitzada per BB Construmat on els germans Roca van explicar els principis que hi ha rere la seva empresa puntera al sector de la gastronomia, que ha sabut com sortir-se'n de la crisi, com a fórmula d'inspiració. La trobada, de caràcter informal, festiu i distès, va servir com a primera presa de contacte amb el caràcter que tindrà el saló enguany: un punt de trobada, intercanvi de coneixement i col·laboració del que és actualment el sector de la construcció. Un punt de trobada imprescindible per a captar-ne el seu pols i celebrar la seva remuntada.
