23AndMe Will Decode Your DNA for $1,000. Welcome to the Age of Genomics

Have a look at this thought-provoking piece that addresses how people are dealing with the coming of the so-called age of genomics, in which one could tell which diseases are more likely to develop in the future. These advances are actually increasing our chances of defeating -or at least of catching earlier- many conditions, thus boosting our productive lifespan. However, they are coming with a set of responsibilities and choices to be made. We'll have the information, but we'll have to figure out what to do with it, acquiring a new value the way in which we conduct our lives. Some claim this kind of calculations is present in many decisions daily made concerning our health, genomics is just another tool. So, if -knowingly or not- each action connects itself with a different path, why not having all the clues we can find?

In Italy, a winter of discontent

The next article tells us about the spiritual malaise that appears to be affecting Italians, as its country endures a difficult transition from its rich past to the present days. It seems that according to a recent report Italians consider themselves the least happy people in Western Europe. Some of the traits characterizing the national blues -which may be representative for other European countries as well-, are the loss of hope towards the future and the possibility of change, and also an exaggerated veneration for its history. It might be this paralyzing admiration what deters younger generations from being innovative and critical, something that ultimately translates into the artistic, politic and economic spheres.

In the genomic age, we will no longer have the problem of not knowing, but we will face the burden of whether we want to know in the first place.
