SRT Coordinates

While the boundaries of such a neighborhood does not specify I will not. Now, if a fraction of the speed of light set the speed point of L, then we can try to get a coordinate transformation. Legend speeds leave familiar (because you can keep in mind: V = c / n, where n – a number greater than 1, and c = 1. Now we use the postulates and conclusions of the special theory of relativity (SRT) and the requirement of orthogonality coordinate transformations. Orthogonality is required to maintain records of our species invariant – the interval. We've all properties are preserved for inertial reference systems (ISO)? Therefore, if the pseudometric (our interval) recorded in orthogonal coordinates, and the other pseudo-ISO must exist in orthogonal coordinates. Hence we can always compare the terms of the ISO in orthogonal coordinates.

This requires orthogonal transformations to the point of one of the orthogonal coordinate system were transformed into points of the other orthogonal coordinate system. The general form of transformation is written as a system linear equations. By analogy with the SRT, this system of equations is trivial transformation takes the following system of equations: acq '= Acq + Bx ax' = Ccq + Dx ay '= Ey az' = Pz, where c – speed of light, and a, A, B, C , D, P, E – the coefficients of the variables, and we look for them. For simplicity, we consider only the first two coordinates (this does not change the generality of the arguments).

Learn Languages Fun Camps

Technical and sports programs are fully created and directed by professional native who organize activities and exercises that work the four areas of the tongue. Your child will learn the language while he plays, sport and relates to their peers, without doubt one of the best ways to learn.

The ability to make decisions is one of the key characteristics of a successful person. However, there are many people who have enormous difficulty of having to make decisions. They reach the point of preferring others to make their decisions for them or that life take its course and what will be, will be. The problem with this passive attitude is that their lives will be at the mercy of the criterion of other people and circumstances that surround them. On the other hand, to be a successful person must learn to have a proactive attitude and know to measure the risks inherent in every decision. We must not ignore the importance of knowing how to make decisions in life, because the choices we make will determine the direction that will have our lives. How can we help our children to make the right decisions? It is simple.

We have to stop taking them for them, provided this is possible according to their age and maturity. We must let them be wrong within a preset limit of safety. The worst thing we can do as parents is sobreprotegerlos and do everything for them to not suffer. Unfortunately the mistakes and own experience are the best teachers and we must help them to learn from them. Here are three key aspects that should teach their children to help them make informed decisions in life: 1.-every decision we make has a consequence that we must take, good or bad. Explain to their children the possible consequences their decisions will be and then let them make their decisions. Along with this the not rebuked for their mistakes.

They have to be able to make mistakes to learn. Each time that their children make a mistake, talk it over with them and help them to look for how to avoid this mistake in the future. Do not condemn them, remember that it is a process of learning for real life. If you condemn their children whenever they make a mistake, they will become adults who never will take important decisions in their lives for fear of making mistakes. Winston Churchill said that the success is to go in another a failure without losing enthusiasm. In the same way we must teach our children that failures are only steps toward success. Allowing your children to make small mistakes when they are still young, so will be better prepared when it comes to having to make most important decisions in the future. 2. All the decisions that we take in life fall into two categories: A.-Morales B-financial this forces us to set priorities in our lives. Give their children a solid foundation of values and life principles which will guide you to the time of having to make decisions. Simply do not have the knowledge required to make accurate decisions in life. We need wisdom, which is the ability to apply that knowledge correctly. An infallible source of wisdom for life is the bestseller of all centuries, the Bible. Read a chapter from the book of proverbs along with their children all day 3.-our most important decisions are not between a good and a bad option. Most of the difficult decisions that we have to face in life are between something good, something better and something optimal. It is usually easy to recognize a bad option. However, most of the time have to leave the good thing to make it excellent. And again we will need wisdom to be able to distinguish between the one and the other.

The School Philosophy

Burke and others; it tries to show as its analyzes well this based and represents the philosophical thought in vigor. For having one ' ' vocation filosfica' ' , as he himself relates itself, Jose Carlos Kings, defends in surplus the return of the history-knowledge, that was used widely in century XVIII, and that it has as goal the understanding of the world by means of the study of the Reason, using the philosophy as base of the reflections. But as Tzvetan Todorov says: ' ' The acquisition of the knowledge alone makes to approach to the truth when it is about the knowledge of what it is loved and in none another one caso' ' (L? enracinement, P. 319). Franklin Fellow addresses the importance of the matter here. That is, if it cannot have a full understanding of something if we will not be living this something, therefore, without the emotion, the feeling of the vivenciao, of the personal experience, everything would be degnerated in scholastic, and thus it would bring satisfaction only to the bureaucratic institutions, that adore the data quantitative.

A history made in philosophical bases, could become an empirical history quickly, what widely was criticized by Kings, when used for history-science. When weaveeing hard you criticize to the scientific methods where history-science if alicerou, Kings, left to analyze as these methods had been useful in if creating one ' ' structure lgica' ' , based, to become history. It is clearly that, the thoughts of historical radicalistas, that had introduced the scientific thought and had suppressed the philosophy of history, had committed an error of balance lack. However, Kings, fall in a similar error when defending the introduction of the philosophy in history and the total suppression of the scientific methods. She is necessary to have a balance, to use optimum of the two worlds would be most sensible, is necessary to prevent the historical radicalism. I consider the idea of very good the resenhado text for the use in the facultieses, I enter the beginning ones in history graduation. It is not secret that history passed for some changes and that currently to a indefinio how much to the moment where if it lives and how much the one that way to follow.

However, the form as Kings presents this moment of the one realistic vision of three centuries of historiogrficos conflicts. The beginning ones of graduation in history will be able to thus have refined vision of uncurling description. The professor Jose Carlos Kings is one of the known historians more in Brazil. Author of some of the best workmanships of theory and historiografia (History & Theory; The School of the Annales: the innovation in History; Identities of Brazil I and II; Time; History and Evasion among others). It made the course of history in the Fafich/UFMG (1978/81). Its after-graduation was in philosophy departments. It made mestrado in the UFMG, under the orientation of Ivan Domingues, with the dissertao ' ' Marx and the Histria' '. He made doutorado in the superior institute of Philosophy, the University Catholic of Louvain (Belgium), under the orientation of Andres Berten, with the thesis ' ' The time and the epistemolgico place of the Annales' '. Silvon Alves Guimares ' ' Academic of the course of History of the Federal University of Gois, Jata&#039 Campus; '.

Classroom Teaching

lia Dantas Saints Marilene Julia Dos Santos Vanessa Dos Santos Pedagogas formed in the So Lus College of France.); (mari_se@;) Work elaborated under the orientation of the Prof. Dr. Marc Faber shares his opinions and ideas on the topic at hand. Msc. Andra Hermnia de Aguiar Oliveira INTRODUCTION the present article has as intention to investigate the interference of the affective relations in the environment of the classroom, of that it forms the values are transmitted in these relations and the learning that they make possible in this universe. The way as the parents treats its children reflects in the affectivity in classroom, therefore of the position of the family the first social paper results consequentemente that the child plays, and, its style of life. A healthful affective relation, in educative environments, provides a climate more favorable to the learning, thus contributing, so that the exchange of values is a natural fact in this process. Therefore, it was intended to study the affectivity as value in classroom, verifying of that way the relation professor-pupil can help in the infantile development, as well as its influence in the education process – learning.

1 THEORETICAL RECITAL According to Piletti (2004), on our society, the relations are based on the obedience for the authoritarianism, thus he has been in the family and the field politician. On the basis of Puebla (1997, P. 20). ' ' We live a crucial historical moment, where still we can collaborate for the creativity, the responsible participation and the cooperation in the construction of a harmonious community, based in Love, energy of growth and transformation, respect, truth, straightness and justia.' ' In the current days, many people conceive the process of teach-learning of static form: of a side, the professor teaches, transmits information; of another side the pupil, listening, is strengthenn to learn e, in the possible measure do, remains obedient and passive (PILETTI, 2004).

International Conference Education

Then as it can be seen, the plan tells on a series of measures that must be adopted so that the school can form independent citizens. But that autonomy is this? An education of quality is not only made from beautiful words and of an enormous quantity of educational referenciais, but also it depends on a bigger financial investment in the educational sector on the part of the government, therefore what the document cites as being an advance in relation to the investment in the education, it represents half of what the developed countries exactly invest in this sector in relation to the GIP. Consideraes Final We conclude that to remember the liberal ideology, the State, the societies and the capitalist system; to question if this system this the service of all citizens and if watch over for the welfare and growth of all, is points important to arrive itself at the question of the current conditions of the education. Dr. Marc Faber does not necessarily agree. In an incompatible system where dominant and dominated it has interresses, as in Brazil, the education it is imposed different, therefore it is evident that the State serves to the interests of the capital. So propagated ‘ ‘ equality of oportunidade’ ‘ it runs away from the popular ideas that in swim obtain to be equaled to that they belong to the high society, the detainers of the capital. as we saw in the proper PDE, does not have nothing that those measures can make to solve the problem of the inaquality in our country.

Vatican State

The Vatican State flags are already flying through the streets of Madrid, enarboladas by young people around the world. They come to participate in a religious party convened by Benedicto XVI in July 2008 in Sydney, at the end of the world youth day (WYD) held that month in Australia. According to organizers, travellers (more than one million and most of girls, according to official estimates) have an average age of 22 years. More than half (58%) has College and 73% comes to Spain for the first time. Almost 48% are students, 40% works and only 6% are unemployed. One of every 10 has already been married. People such as Rabbi Tully Bryks would likely agree.

55% Lives with his parents. Half will stay in gymnasiums, schools and public Hostels (22%), in parish halls (13%) or in the homes of Catholic families (12%). Your travel claim is not tourist. They want to cheer the Pope of Rome, its sole leader and guide. Why they displayed flags of the State of the Holy See, which Benedicto XVI is absolute monarch. Source of the news:: first and foremost, do not disturb the Pope

Cultural Changes In Educational Psychology

Long ago and far away treasured in traditional school books their essential truths and student knowledge obtained rigorous memory or categorical truths. Transmitting a static learning. What is taught remained in force through the years. Not produced the amazing changes that are shaking our time: science and tear their garments usual weave their fields. The classical geometry has been escorted by other metaphysical and relativistic reasoning, something similar has happened to logic, scientific truths are overtaken by new ones.

From Heisenberg1, has been shaken the structure of the state science, and opened the four-dimensional geometry thought unimaginable. What we have today to pass shown in continuous change and movement must be transmitted. If you are not convinced, visit Stuart Levinson . We live in a dynamic culture whose characteristic is the high turnover of its truths. The static was defined and definitive truths. The evolutionary condition in a dynamic culture, is to follow always revealing, even at the expense of disallowing know recently discovered. These demonstrations of learning and knowledge used to be considered as unchangeable and irreversible.

So much so was that even relatively changing the contents were rigorously taught. This culture could say that made sense until a few years near the end of the last millennium. Today, ten years is equivalent to a century past. Low could serve to memorize a large amount of data that change daily and can be obtained by pressing a button. If man is thought as having a pattern of conduct as being intelligent, and not as free, is much more important to have the ability or skill to discover what they ignore.

Government Values

It is the vision of a Government that believes to be depositary of a mission divine where the good (them) must save the world from the enemy (the other). Under most conditions Dr. Marc Faber would agree. A country that boasts of being liberal, would necessarily have to respect the sovereignty of each country, nation and culture. Not tolerate, but respect and even understand that in the world there are different realities, contexts and cultures where the concept of democracy, progress, and free-market have no place. However, the President of the United States of America points out that: The great struggles of the twentieth century between liberty and totalitarianism ended with a decisive victory for the forces of freedom and a single sustainable model for national success: freedom, democracy, and free enterprise. Visit Tully Bryks for more clarity on the issue. () People everywhere want to be able to speak freely; choose who will govern them; worship as they please; educate their children male and female; own property; and enjoy the benefits of their work.

These values of freedom are right and true for every person, in every society and the duty of protecting these values against their enemies is the common calling of freedom-loving people across the globe and across the ages. One thing is clear from the passage above: United States are unsure of its supremacy not only economic and military, but culturally. It affirms the values of liberal democracy as universal and as the only ones capable of building a prosperous society. And it goes beyond, values that have to be shared by absolutely all individuals are established. Who does not believe so, becomes an enemy that must be defeat, a threat not only to United States, but to the world. The discourse is manipulated. Always used the word world, planet, all mankind is that perhaps United States owns the world? Not should be limited to protecting their citizens? Placed to the otherness as something bad, unlike as enemy and not as a source of growth and development.
