[OP-ED]: Is your phone eavesdropping on your conversation about cannibalism? Mine may have.

 03/08/2017 - 18:41

If you were to read biology professor Bill Schutt’s new book “Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History,” you’d have lots to talk about at the dinner table.

There are, for instance, sections on how cannibalism is portrayed in popular culture, news stories and historical texts. Schutt investigates -- with dark humor -- how cannibalism works within different animal species and how it’s understood by humans of different nations, cultures and religions. Somehow he makes the subject fascinating, rather than gruesome.

[OP-ED]: ¿Escucha a escondidas su teléfono sus conversaciones sobre el canibalismo? El mío tal vez lo hizo.

Si usted lee el nuevo libro del profesor de biología, Bill Schutt, titulado “Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History,” tendrá mucho de qué hablar durante la cena.

Hay, por ejemplo, secciones sobre la forma en que se pinta el canibalismo en la cultura popular, en los artículos periodísticos y en los textos de historia. Schutt investiga—con humor negro—la manera en que funciona el canibalismo en las diversas especies animales y cómo lo comprenden los humanos de diferentes naciones, culturas y religiones. De alguna manera, hace que el tema sea fascinante en lugar de truculento.

¿Gato por liebre?

Los nuevos cambios en la ley de prohibición de viaje de Trump parecen no cambiar en lo absoluto su misión inicial.

El Presidente Donald J. Trump será recordado como uno de los presidentes estadounidenses que más se esforzaron en cumplir su palabra.

Tras la oposición que recibió la Ley de Prohibición de Viaje inicial que introdujo la nueva administración – suspendiendo el ingreso a los Estados Unidos a ciudadanos provenientes de siete países de mayoría musulmana – la promesa de aprobar una versión revisada no se hizo esperar.
