I N T E R E S A N T I

Welcome to my ship's log, I am not a very dedicated blogger, but occasionally I can post some stuff about design, comics, sports and anything that caught my attention for more that 1 minute.On the other hand, I am a Design for Interaction Master Student at TU Delft. I also studied Industrial Designer at Universidad de los Andes at Bogotá, Colombia. My background is as concept, product, interaction and positive designer. I wish I could be a superhero, that is why I like comic books... and from time to time I like to sport, football is my favorite one!

Fist Bumps Pass Along Fewer Germs Than Handshakes

A few weeks ago, we took a look at nonverbal greetings around the world. In Japan, they bow. Ethiopian men touch shoulders. And some in the Democratic Republic of the Congo do a type of head knock.

But the American fist bump stood apart from the rest.

Knocking knuckles was the only greeting we could find that signaled both victory and equality; neither bumper has the upper hand, so to speak.

But of many of our readers pointed out that bumping fists may have another superior quality: it’s cleaner than a traditional handshake.

Now scientists in Wales have confirmed what these astute reader’s already knew. You’re much less likely to pass along bacteria when you bump fists than shake hands or high-five, biologists reported Monday in the American Journal of Infection Control.

The study was small. Only five pairs of people bumped, shook and slapped palms. But the findings were clear-cut. A moderately strong handshake transferred more than five times as much Escherichia coli bacteria onto a recipients hand than a fist bump, biologist David Whitworth and his colleague at Aberystwyth University found.

And that strong, sturdy handshake your grandpa taught you was even dirtier. It transferred nearly 10 times more bacteria than a fist bump.

The high-five fell between the two other greetings. Slapping palms, on average, passed along twice as much bacteria as the fist bump.

Delft, 17th of July, 2014.

Master Thesis Defense. One of the most exciting and important days of my life. I became a Master of Science, an ambassador of the Delft Institute of Positive Design, and a more mature and professional designer. I have been entrusted with a very important task, to become a design leader and spread the word about Positive Design. I want to share some of the picture from my defense, in where I had to present my project, explaining the journey that I had to take to discover the meaningfulness of saving money.

There is also a video used as a live streaming event, in which I was able to share that presentation with my family and friends in Colombia. You can see the video here, however the quality is very low. But I have to say that it is a very interesting tool between Google Hungout and Youtube.

I will be uploading more stuff and hopefully future steps of this project, because for my, this is just the beginning of a wonderful quest.

I can only say Thanks to each and every one that was part of this journey to the meaningfulness of saving money. Cheers! http://savingsproject.tumblr.com/
