With great wisdom, someone has said that life is the color of the glass with which you look. But, in fact, we must remember that we we who invented the color of the glass. Every day, cope with any situation, we who decide if we’ll see opportunities or problems, if we move with value or us estancaremos on the road, if we pay the high price of a dream or simply give up. I acknowledge that it is sometimes difficult to accept this, because, to be realistic, there are many situations that are beyond our capabilities. There is also the fact, if it is working with other people, that not all are motivated by the same and in the same way, so when proposed group tasks (at University, at work) stress increases considerably, because each one will still see things in their own way, hindering the progress of the group. Perhaps is not reason enough to understand that not everything is crystal with that look? I think is not reason enough, because although others think so different or see the ((life differently from ours, no one can impose on us a way of seeing life, but we have only two alternatives: 1) we forge our own perception of life, or, 2) accept the perception that have life others. I’m not saying that other people have a way to grim view of life, however, by very good that it is the way another sees his own life, we cannot take their techniques for ourselves, because our life is unique, as well as our way of influencing the world is unique. Of course that we can learn from those great people who tend to overcome every obstacle, clear to them and they can teach us great life lessons, but it will be up to us to recognize that we are solely responsible for our life, that we will begin to live in truth.

San Francisco

Tuesday, December 24th, 2013

The correspondence which arrived after the owner’s death remains on the bed, unopened. Also appear Picasso ceramics and walls, posters of bullfights and the horns and the stuffed heads of animals killed on their hunts. Finally, one can glimpse the privacy of the writer. An intimacy that always protected with much zeal. In the dining room where they always put a cover over for the unexpected visitor, is a mosaic with the inscription: “No one enters here without being called.” As the writer complained about how much of what visitors importuned, Miss Mary, his fourth wife, ordered the construction of three-story tower adjacent to the house. The first floor would serve as home to more than 50 cats from the farm, the second been kept fishing gear and hunting the owner, and the third, having before his eyes a splendid panorama of the city, their study would .

On this particular tells a story quite hilarious. Hemingway came one day supposed to write the tower and stayed there for 15 minutes, during which he strove in vain to build a sentence. He got out and never again to use that room for the job. He could not stand the loneliness of his new study … .. and continued writing in his room.

It stated that thanks to his third wife is that Hemingway began to live on the farm of San Francisco de Paula, but it is curious to know that everything successful and enjoyable than was actually the writer’s relationship with the place, could not have never materialized . The Hemingway first visited the land that his wife intended to they were his, not like at all. Fell far short of Cojimar, where and anchored his ship, and the Floridita, another of his great discoveries in Havana. By then very famous bar, Hemingway attended daily. He spent hours sitting always in the same place, at the far left of the bar and which has been immortalized many years with a statue that is located precisely at the site he occupied. Since there still seems to thoughtfully contemplate the enjoyment by visitors of the site, your favorite cocktail The daiquiri. It is said that could be taken in one night to 15 daiquiris, and not its usual version. But a version that it invented in accordance with Rivalaigua Constantino, owner and founder of Floridita. The classic daiquiri is a whipped blend of rum, lemon and sugar over crushed ice to which is added sometimes a stroke of maraschino. For Hemingway, as would the other Colombian Gabriel Garcia Marquez Nobel Prize for literature, invented the Daiquiri wild. The U.S. ordered to remove the sugar mixture and fold the amount of rum and crushed ice. Thus arose the pope “s Daiquiri. Such was his love for the cocktail that retreat to Finca Vigia, almost always seen him take in a thermos or a large glass, as he said … .. “the Daiquiri’s way.” Knowing all this is easy to understand the motivations that made a statement in relation to Cuba on another occasion. “I love this country and I feel at home, and where a man feels at home, apart from the birthplace, that is the site it was intended.”.

Something internal, everyone feels different, think different, is different. Looking for small targets during the year we approach to a long-term goal for example save monthly for year-end holidays. We can plan the life in the same way, small goals monthly or annual to get get something dreamed. Enjoy life with everyday, with thing of every day, teaches us that happiness is very close, perhaps so much that we are unable to appreciate it. We look at dawn? In the stars at night? In the smile of children? The best things in life are free but we always hope something extraordinary something out of the ordinary when the ordinary is truly extraordinary. Something fantastic happens all the time but we are accustomed to this and therefore goes unnoticed. Dawn is extraordinary, is fantastic, however it’s amazing we got not up to see him even once in the year. But if an eclipse occurs, people put together by hundreds to take the best position, buy special lenses and recorded the moment, they go up to Youtube and will be displayed on television.

Dawn occurs every day and not we appreciate, the birds sing regularly and its sound goes unnoticed must suffer an accident or illness that leave us without hearing a couple of years to miss the chirping of birds, the sound of the wind, the murmur of the sea? Keep without the vision to find wonderful dawn, the colour of the sky, the greenness of the grass? Why not do it now? Choose the destination you want to visit, the natural landscape more beautiful that you have knowledge and tell you go there, takes account of the passage, stay etc. Hear other arguments on the topic with Brian Krzanich. Plan how much you must save each month and do it. Your desire to make a reality every day. Not you claudiques in your attempt, do not lose the momentum imagines that you’ve already come to old and that these weak and tired, also think that you left many things without doing, if you come back to live you disfrutarias more life, escalarias mountains, would you do surf, bucearias in the Caribbean. Do you expect to get there and feel the helplessness of not being able to return in time? Do what you do in your life, travels where you have to go, invented what you have to invent, but do it now! time progresses relentlessly scale mountains, surf, explores the background marino enjoys life. The beautiful natural landscapes are waiting there for you, the sea and the mountains are still in the same place do but you where these?

International Meridian Conference

Monday, December 16th, 2013

Sir Sandford Fleming (January 7, 1827 ‘July 22, 1915) was a prolific Canadian engineer and inventor, known for the creation of the concept of Universal Time (Universal Time, Universal Time or UT) and 24-hour system hours for the 24 time zones job search starting from the Antimeridiano of Greenwich, now called Meridian of 180 degrees and that too is now used as international Linea date change.
He designed the first stamp or stamp of Canada and did a great work of surveying and mapping throughout the country, responsible for carrying out engineering Intercolonial Railway and Canadian Pacific Railway (Canadian Pacific Railroad or CPR).
A founding member of the Royal Society of Canada (Royal Society recruitment agency of Canada) and founder of the Royal Canadian Institute, a scientific and academic organization in Toronto.
Scotland to Canada
Sandford Fleming was born in Kirkcaldy, Fife (Scotland) and in 1845, at the age of 17, emigrated to Ontario (then the colony of Upper Canada) with his older brother, David. The adventure of his journey took him through many of the Canadian colonies, from the cities of headhunter Quebec and Montreal to Kingston (Ontario), finally settling in Peterborough, also in Ontario, where some cousins recruitment lived.
His inventiveness went into action almost immediately and in 1847 began work on the design of what would be first in line skates. In 1849 he founded the Royal Canadian Institute (Royal Canadian Institute), formally recognized academic institution on manager job November 4, 1851. In this year designed the “3-penny beaver ‘, the first Canadian postage stamp. During this time he worked full time as a geographer ‘cartographer, in the mapping and plans for the Grand Trunk Railway (Grand Trunk Railway).
Railway Engineer
His work on the Grand Trunk Railway won him over time, the post of executive jobs Chief Engineer of Northern Railway in 1855, a company in which I advocate tirelessly on the construction of steel bridges instead of wood for safety reasons. Sandford Fleming proposed in 1858 (first time), the construction of a rail line spanning all of British America from coast to coast. This proposition was ahead of its time, but a few years later, Fleming was appointed engineer in charge of monitoring any proposed mapping of the Intercolonial Railway was to link the Maritime Provinces with Quebec, logistics jobs so it was set during a time Halifax (Nova Scotia) during its construction. In 1872, the recruiter newly formed Canadian government decided to build a line of railroad to the employment agency Pacific Ocean and of course the job of surveying the route fell to Fleming. That same year he organized an expedition to the Pacific which included recruitment agencies a number of surveying and mapping, as well as the naturalist John Macoun and Presbyterian pastor George Munro Grant, clergyman of the Church of Scotland. In the following years he supervised the construction of both the Intercolonial and the Canadian Pacific Railway, a job he completed sales jobs in 1876 before turning over the chief engineer position to his longtime collaborator, Collingwood Schreiber. Fleming was present when Daniel Smith drove the first train in the last stretch to Craigellachie, British Columbia, in 1885, and as a board member of the Canadian Pacific Company (CPC). In 1876 he published his work: The Intercolonial: A Historical Sketch.
Inventor of the Universal Standard Time
After missing a train in Ireland because the printed schedule Decia pm instead of am, Standford Fleming proposed a universal time of 24 headhunters hours not tied to any particular meridian. Then suggested that the time zones could be used locally, but always subordinate to a single schedule for everyone. In a meeting held at the Royal Canadian Institute on February 8, 1879, Sandford Fleming proposed that the standard universal time meridian recruiting of origin would like to Antimeridiano Greenwich, renamed as the 180th meridian . This new proposition came to remedy the problem, since the times everyone should have a single origin (a meridian is taken as origin) to be a coherent system. Continuous schedule to promote his system at major international conferences including the International Meridian Conference held in 1884 in Washington (USA). The conference accepted a different version of Universal Time, but refused recruiters to accept his concept of zones, stating that this was a local matter that was beyond its scope.

Styles of Learning

Sunday, December 15th, 2013

The term learning styles talks about to the fact that when we want to learn something each of us uses its own method or set of strategies. Although the concrete strategies that we used vary according to what we want to learn, each of us tends to develop global preferences. Those preferences or tendencies to use plus certain ways to learn that others constitute our style of learning. The concept of the learning styles directly is related to the conception of the learning like an active process. If we considered that the learning is equivalent to receive information of passive way what the student does or thinks is not very important, but we understand the learning as the elaboration on the part of the receiver of the received information seems quite evident that each of us will process and relate the data received based on its own characteristics.

The DIFFERENT THEORIES AND AS THEY ARE RELATED To each other In the last decades have elaborated all type of theories and models stop to explain the differences in the form to learn. But, of all those theories and models which is the good one. The answer is that all and no. The word " aprendizaje" it is a very ample term that includes phases different from a same and complex process. Each one of the existing models and theories focus the learning from a different angle. When it is contemplated the totality of the learning process is perceived that those apparently contradictory theories and models to each other are not it as much and even that they are complemented. Like professors and following in which it leaves from the learning process we center our attention, times it will interest to us to use a model and other times another one. MODELS OF LEARNING STYLES the different models and existing theories on learning styles offer a conceptual frame that allows to understand the daily behaviors us in the classroom, as they are related to the form in which the students are learning and the type of action that can be more effective at a certain time.

Artifact Discoveries

Saturday, December 14th, 2013

DISCOVERIES of artifacts CLOVISOIDES through the American South America continent has always formed part of the study of American prehistory in general. Professionals in cultural and physical anthropology, particularly Americans, drawn to the Bering Strait as entry route for the Peopling of the Americas. The history of the Clovis complex begins in the year 1929, when in the vicinity of the Clovis people in New Mexico, an adolescent’s surname Whiteman found some weird rocks, that were called warheads. To report them to the Smithsonian, a specialist identified them as spearheads. These had been beautifully carved to give a cutting edge to both edges and were subsequently completed with a Groove on both sides of the proximal to facilitate their enmangamiento.

Because of its characteristics so special and unique these spearheads are considered as the identity card of the specialized paleo-Indian hunters. They received the name of the place where they were discovered (clovis). Subsequently the same type of grooved ends was found in the most ancient archaeological sites from across North America. In dozens of sites were found tips clovisoides, from British Columbia to Northern Mexico and from Nova Scotia to Florida, with a minimum age and a maximum age of 11,200 8,700 years before present. The dates of the organic material associated with these tools indicate that men who used them lived in America not more than 11,000 years ago, according to a report by Peter J. Mehringer Jr. In the field, we have seen the presence of many sites with lithic artifacts undoubtedly belonging to different cultural periods pre-puntas of projectile.

In North America, in the majority of sites clovisoides where there have been excavations, tips of projectiles watermelon (which is the equivalent of tips Joboides in Venezuela) were found in strata below the tips Folsom and Clovis. This suggests that the Clovis point was presumably invented by watermelon hunters in North America. STOCKING CLOVISOIDE in PARAGUANA to assess the environment of the clovisoides specialized hunters who lived in Paraguana, must also ask other questions, such as: why it left the foot of the Hill, where you can see still remains of their camps? Why climbed half skirt of cerro Santa Ana to 200 meters above the sea level? In response, we believe that the clovisoides lived on the terrace of the Cayude, between 8 to 11 thousand years ago. At this time the last interglacial phase was at its peak in the northern hemisphere. As a result, the sea was about 100 m below its current level, phenomenon which leads to the formation of severe drought that scourged the flat lands of the coastal zone and only the birth of the Cayude Creek in the County offered the precious liquid, closer to its source, continually on the South side. Clovis Paleoindian Folsom late cultural periods should occur: approx. 11,500 to 8,000 years before present in the Great Plains in the South of the United States (Boldurian & J.Cotter 1999: 73 free translation.) In dates close to the 11,000 years before present, it ended the last interglacial period and the sea level was 100 meters more down as described above. In Falcon state environment paleo ecological was very similar in North America.

Consumer Research

Wednesday, December 11th, 2013

The study has been carried out by researchers of the Department of human psychology of the University of British Columbia (Canada) and published in Journal of Consumer Research. Its main aim was check, scientific and quantified, the influence they have on the power of a person the type of company and their attitude. The results have been surprising. The methodology used was to examine the behavior of 210 college students, who took a one film and made believe that interested in your opinion about the movie. They were always accompanied by a member of the research team which weighed 48 kilos. This, in some occasions came with its normal appearance (thin) and other (obviously, with different students) was filled with pillows, to pretend to be obese.

During the film, offered sweets to both, first to the collaborator, then to the student. Thus, for example, it could be verified that, when the contributor ate 30 candies and presented as it was (thin), the student took, on average, 10. More on an equal footing, but characterized of obese, only took 6. A very noticeable difference, as you can see. In general lines, found that the obese passenger incites to eat more.

But the most dangerous behavior is of the thin person who eats a lot, because we get the message unconscious of that, if she eats a lot and is thin, I can do it. On the contrary, the company of someone thin who eats little and well makes us eat just like he or she: sparingly and in a healthy way. But more interesting than the information itself that gives us this study is the fact that shows the great influence of certain facts which are perceived unconsciously. Because, in addition to the company and their attitude, also include many other factors: the environment (music, lighting), motivation, size of rations, packaging, advertising, availability of food, personal preferences, etc. Based on the above, many experts, as Brent McFerran, one of the directors of the study, advised reflect at lunchtime, to try to rationalize those factors that can make that we eat more, be aware of them and take into account our objectives and situation, in order to adapt our behavior to our real needs. This rationalization and annulment of those unconscious factors that make us eat more can be extended to multiple situations: from the already described to not let us influence by a slim companion that eats immoderate way, through advertising for a few snacks that makes us lift up front to television and go to the kitchen to pick up a bag of them, until a friendly company in a restaurant that makes us to prolong the food (and eating) more than is desirable. McFerran summarizes all of the above with a phrase: If we think before we do, we will be less prone to overeating.

British Columbia University

It is increasingly common to find the word toxic particularl nouns like: companies, organizations, chiefs or people, and not just because there are toxic fumes in the place, or need for a brigade of special risks to work there. If we refer to a toxic company, we will be referring to an organization whose results are unsatisfactory, and its members are working in a situation of stress and tension so great, that the workplace becomes a field of battle and destruction for the person. Peter J. Frost, Professor of organizational behavior at British Columbia University, describes a toxic work environment in the following way: is the result both of the practices of a company and attitudes and emotionally insensitive actions of its managers. A situation remaining vitality to the workers and the Organization and contributes to a reduction of individual productivity (toxic emotions at work. Ed.: Deusto). The aggressiveness, the envy, the incompetence of managers and a hostile environment, will progressively undermine the emotional competence of workers, making him little by little in a person frightened, intimidated and with a strong sense of guilt.

At the head of a toxic organization, it can or is usually a Manager or a toxic leader, whose needs and personal interests do not often coincide with the Organization, little or nothing facilitator of an emotional and effective communication and a source of real or imagined pressures. Toxic leader tends to be contradictory, distant, capricious and inconsistent, so his subordinates, never know what to follow, or that holds them for the next minute. In his book Nursing Management, Fitzpatrick, describes him as very distrustful, cares for his personal aggrandizement and fight for the triumph, the power and the glory. It is very aggressive with employees who have doubts about him and makes enemies where there are no. If there are toxic bosses it is because companies tolerate them, and if they tolerate them is because they believe that they are useful to their objectives.
