It’s a sad week

It’s a sad week. Galicia, our homeland, is burning in flames. At this moment, more than 50 fires are burning without control. And the worst of all is that the main part of them are caused by men.

I can’t believe how such unresponsible and stupid people can exist. What kind of madness or obscure interests can force them to cause a fire started in some points at the same time, in order to be difficult to suffocate it? What’s the point of so many FEDER grants, so many improvements and innovations, so many animal repopulation and tree reforestation, if at the end there are people that don’t care about Galicia?

The time status at Vigo local weather station today wasn’t “sun”, “clouds” or “fog”, it was “smoke”. I’m desolated.

Igalia is renewing its corporate image. In the beginning, we decide to order the logo design to Jon Hicks (the creator of the Firefox and Thunderbird logo), but he was very busy and recommended us to get in touch with Denis Radenkovic, from 38one.com.

As the new logo was born, we are progressive changing all our corporate image: web, presentation cards, document templates… and even have decided to order t-shirts. Here is the result:

English learning radio

The EarthPast week I discovered a new radio station in the Vigo area while driving in my car. The point about that station is that it’s focused into English learning and the speakers are talking in English all the time. Listening to it is a good way to practice English listening and so get used to different English stresses (american, english and scottish) and levels (from children to high level).

The station can be tuned at 91.8FM or listened in internet through this Playlist (if it doesn’t work, try the direct stream URL). You can also visit Vaughan Systems main page or the Vaughan Radio page to get more information.
