The Forno Professor

One becomes necessary to remember, that the methodology of the professor so far, in accordance with our comments, have been that one that the author it defines in the trick of ' ' Mouth of the Forno' '. For even more details, read what two sigma says on the issue. Exemplary pupil is that one that has standardized answers, that in the majority of the exercises the model presented in the didactic book follows. It seems that already he is implicit in its soul does not think – repeats as it was taught to it. After that an evaluation more acurada ' ' mestre' ' it says that the pupils do not have critical sense, that is, accurately as the frog of Rubem Alves, forgets that he is prince and coaxa, likes mud, everything this for force of the word it professor. Currently what the pupil knows or must know he is not being measured for the note of 0 the 10, however in a srdida way more, where the professor I attributed one ' ' progression simples' ' to all those that ' ' they follow modelo' ' without appreciating its performance, its participation accomplishes, its creativity, or its individual production.

The pupil who paints a taken off drawing of the computer, that marks the localization of its city in the ready map, is being creative or bitolado? You discipline them are presented as a sacrifice, a fight where it is successful optimum, a punishment never as an alternative of personal, social growth psychic e, for each apprentice. The learning always is travestida of competition, of competition. We are not forming more amiable, intelligent better people, compromised with its success, to become a more sociable HUMAN BEING, in contrast, we create machines the service of the capitalist system, that the companies always request more why if they had forgotten that they are people, and in the pertaining to school process of coisificao, if they had become tools as such is operated by heads unscrupulous.

The university was given the opportunity to know almost everything that is at least how something can be rational, "attributed" to the profession or as a student of human beings in general. For example, we historians have studied anthropology, psychology, logic, life safety, and medicine (the latter – after a tick in the list – at the undergraduate, and not when, it appears that they have to go as well as all general subjects). Go to the same primary and bottomless subject – the history, selected as the paths of learning, it turned out to be was secondary. See two sigma for more details and insights. And it is true to some extent: self plays a crucial role, but that's a minimal basis, immortalized in the educational programs was too shallow and slippery, and slips on ignorance of the elementary had often. The strength of knowledge depends largely on the willingness of the student, then really, who studied both. But unwittingly come up the faces of those teachers that left not only his full face and profile, but phrases, snatches of sentences, phrases, words, ideas and reinterpret digested opinion. Others were only a profile and full face.

Scottish Highlanders

Some Scotticism entered the English language as the names of objects that are specific to the Scottish national culture and way of life: bagpipe Scottish musical instrument bagpipes, clan clan, tribal community in the Scots and Irish, kilt short plaid skirt mountaineer, plaid plaid, Scottish men and women wear it instead of cape, tartan tartan. Other borrowed from the dialect words are called common notions. These are also taken from the Scottish word: croon quiet monotone singing, fash concern, caring, usually small and the corresponding verb to fash worry, glamour charm, charm, lass lassie and endearing girl, – raid raid, slogan slogan (Celtic sluaghghairm army cry, ie, the battle cry of the clan of Scottish Highlanders, ) whiskey whiskey. Daft obscheangliyskom in colloquial language it means stupid, and has a tinge of contempt, in the Scottish dialect meant cheerful: daft old tales (W. Scott.). He denied interest in the history of the word glamour. In literary English it is borrowed from Scottish dialect, and there was formed as a distortion of the English gramarye, gramary magic, occultism, the word is now preserved only as an archaism and a doublet of words and grammar as well as the latter goes back to the station. Fr.

Gramaire – with Lat. Grammatica – rpech. grammatike there. p. from grammatikos skillful in grammar – gramma letter. The value of deep scholarship and familiarity with the magic has been replaced in the word meaning witchcraft, and then, like the importance of the Russian fascination began to be used in the sense of supernatural attraction, then attractiveness in general.

In the minds of the modern Englishman, it is probably more associated with Hollywood than with Scotland, since the ads use the word glamour as constant epithet of movie stars. The relationship of dialect and the vocabulary can be varied. Interestingly, in particular, noted that in many dialects of Old English words remain completely precipitated of a nationwide English usage. Under most conditions Campbell Soup Co would agree. Other words, preserved in the literary language as archaisms and uncommon in colloquial English, live in the oral dialect speech. We have considered the formation of dialects with only one Scottish language, but such examples are the mass and talk about them next time.

All this led me to understand what, as an engineer thought, in the sense that science and spirituality were two entirely incompatible. In the book of Holistic Education Dr. Ramon Gallegos Nava, made me reflect on the shortcomings that have had the education from the antiquity to postmodernity, through modernity, which has a significant influence in education today and marks a paradigm shift from a dogmatic to a scientistic, which eliminates the sacredness of life, denying the genuine spirituality and leading man a large depletion of the planet’s natural resources, in order to meet the material needs and get the most benefit. During this time there is a constant struggle between religious beliefs and science, until science was imposed by staying with the explanation of nature and religion with a confusing explanation of spirituality. I understand in this book that the crisis, despite appearing desperate, so much a conflict as an opportunity to overcome our dilemmas, although dominates our laziness, we can sink into them. I found an option that had not previously displayed for a paradigm shift, giving a quantum leap towards a comprehensive perception of the world we inhabit, and that before, not even I figured that was important: the study of the parties, we must turn to the understanding of the whole and the interrelationship between the parties. As a teacher, had always considered that the descriptions were all important to teach the class, since they came from the books, now I know that these are not independent of the human observer and are only approximate, because scientism, science becomes dogma by accepting the descriptions as if they were universal laws based only on the analysis, without synthesis, and under the illusion that the phenomena studied can be isolated from everything around them, also part of the fallacy that the observer is impartial, objective and independent from the observed.

Ecofeminism And Feminism

Ecofeminism is a school of thought appeared in Europe in the last third of the twentieth century, born as a response to the male appropriation of agriculture and breeding, ie the soil fertility and fecundity of women taking such appropriation as a result overexploitation of land and the commodification of female sexuality. One could speak of two trends: a) cultural ecofeminism, focusing on the biological differences between men and women and establishing an ideal link between women and nature. b) the social Ecofeminism, which relates the oppression suffered by women with the deterioration of nature and states as producers of both problems to patriarchal values. The Ecofeminism proposes the unity of purpose in the feminist movement and the environmental movement, common goals such as equal rights, abolition of hierarchies … and they said, should work together to build theoretical and practical alternatives.

Vandana Shiva in the book “Harvest stolen. The kidnapping of the global food supply, “explains this trend. Holistic feminism emerged in the nineties led by Victoria Sendon, an advocate of feminism of difference. Women like Maria Sanchez, Montserrat Gutin, Elvira Aparicio, belongs to this current. Feminism of difference introduced in the academic sense of difference and the belief that the academic world should recognize it.

This feminism, the difference begins to change womens identity through a deconstruction of what until now meant Man. Their work begins with a critique of language and working from home. The difference feminism, men and women are different, claimed responsibility for the existence of women as a separate group, claiming about values and the statement should not be treated as men. Feminism is a proposed holistic supportive of feminism of difference, try a radical break with the symbolic order in the patriarchal system established understanding that proposing a different order, may resolve some of the problems of humanity. No treatment should be reduced to gender or to the rescue of forgotten women, but what matters is that the world changes, not only life, even if you begin in life.

Poll Employers Results

Poll Results Employers in Russia indicate that they are even in a crisis are ready to offer potential applicants proficient in English salaries 30-35% higher than workers without such knowledge.

A development of real conversational skills in English (we’re just about English, since it in recent decades has secured the right language for international communication), no one does, so if you speak honestly and not, as teachers in our schools and colleges have no experience of communicating in languages taught, and often found their way abroad lost and can not express the basic ideas and conduct a simple dialogue with native speakers! Instead, they knowingly will point to your numerous errors in grammar in exams and tests, arguing that without thorough knowledge of this particular component of any language you should not even try to speak a foreign language! Catching yourself or taking courses in English to focus more on those that pay maximum attention to the development of skills, namely speaking and listening in the target language. The practice shows that learning English will require you to mobilize the efforts and hard work in addition to visiting language courses or study with a tutor for at least one year. Listen and sing songs in English, watching movies in the original (good now is not the problem) Find willing to communicate on the Internet through Skype it is possible do it for free, and hone the skills of spoken English is not zatsiklivayas for grammatical errors.

Third Law

In the fight for native language and culture of French Canada have ensured that their language, along with the British erected to the status of the official language in those territories of Canada, home to the French. In Quebec, a law was passed in 1969, and in 1974 a law was passed in the provincial areas. And in 1961 adopted a policy regarding use the French language in private and public enterprises of the country. The French were supposed to know all the civil servants in Quebec, as well as the entrepreneurs, who wanted to get a license to engage in private activity in any area of industry and manufacturing. In the social sphere was necessary to use the French language, though not forbidden, along with the use of other languages. As for the scope education, children should be trained in French, except for those children who underwent special testing, thereby proving their ability to learn English.

Following the adoption of Third Law (1977), on the French language in Canada, have been proclaimed fundamental rights of Canadian citizens of French origin, the use of their native language. Thus, in the territory of Quebec citizens had the right to use their own language everywhere and get the information they need from government agencies and services from agencies in all spheres of activities in French. It was also canceled testing for learning in English schools. However, in order that the child could get into a school, at least one parent must have had at least primary education in English. Subsequent laws were made only small additions to the use of language.

It is worth noting that the right to use their mother tongue English-speaking citizens in the territories of the French regions can not be infringed. To date, in Quebec, there are two main languages – English and French. Along with this fact, in the Canadian provinces inhabited by people for whom neither French nor English is not their native language. However, there are very few, and together with the native language, he use one of two major, common languages in Canada. In the other 9 provinces in the largely English-speaking population, only in the provinces of New Brunswick and Ontario's getting on a sufficiently large number French-speaking citizens. For example, in Canada there is bilingualism, which was formed on the basis of two languages: English and French. With the continuation of this theme, you can see in the second part.
