The Look of Iceland (summary): In April 2010, in the midst of economic crisis, Iceland had to face a volcano that paralysed his main income, tourism. Geologist and writer, David Rabadà left alone in Iceland in the summer of 2010 to find answers to many questions about the guilt of all, the unpronounceable Eyjafjallajökull, a crater ash which paralysed all European airports. That was the trigger of curiosity geologist and the engine of weeks travelling to three questions that the press of time did not respond. It was as dangerous as some media claimed? Why such a stunted crater had become so explosive? And the most important issue, was necessary to close so many days all the European airports, or was it all a mistake will never admit the political mediocrity? To find answers to these questions the author proposed to visit Eyjafjallajökull crater, which led him to make a second trip on the island in winter 2011. Chasing that goal is succeeded many anecdotes and described difficulties with good humour will show in detail the Icelandic landscape and the lives of its people. This narrative, novel and travel guide also, explains the close relationship about three apparently unconnected events, the Icelandic economic crisis, the collapse of his government and the outraged movement. The coexistence of the author with many Icelanders discovered the essence of it all, some adventures that will guide you to the real protagonist of his journey, a look, The Look of Iceland.

JESÚS, CRÓNICA DE UN DOBLE ASESINATODel nazareno histórico a la unción del Cristo evangélico
In the 21st Century there is a huge contrast between two images of Jesus Christ. One belongs to the Gospels, and the other to historical data. A paradox appears when we try to compare both visions. When examined in detail, we see that the majority of people believe that those images depicted in the Gospels are more believable than that of historical detail. However, when compared with previous studies, there is now enough data to ascertain that the image of Jesus Christ in the Gospels was created by those who never actually met him in reality. The perception of Christ depicted by a disciple led to the creation of The Gospels. These were a series of books written whilst the Roman Empire was still the enemy of Christians and Jews. As a result, the image of Jesus Christ would therefore be that of a limited or one-sided perception. This study will show the contrast between the two visions, the first examining historical writings and the second being that of The Gospels. This examination will, in turn, attempt to explore the true history of Jesus Christ.

Rabadà i Vives, David (2001): WERE THERE PLEISTOCENE RITUAL BURIALS IN THE SIMA DE LOS HUESOS OUTCROP? (Atapuerca Range, Burgos, Spain). Batalleria 10: 49- 54.Museu de Geologia del Seminari de Barcelona.
The Sima de los Huesos site, Atapuerca, contains an important sample of fossilised human bones of Homo neanderthalensis. The nature of the SH human remains was interpreted as human burials but geological, taphonomical and palaeocological evidences have given rise to a new interpretation. Ecological competition inside the cave site between Homo and predators, accidents by falling into the cavity and old passages used as access to the chamber by human predators as felids and canids explain this accumulation of human bones.
