Some media falsehoods

The popular saying says:
"A lie many times repeated,
finally seems a truth and comes alive "

Times ago, it was only necessary to go outside criticizing
and hope that the rumor was spreading,
if one wanted to hurt someone.

However, now by the new technologies,
everything goes around the world in a few days,
then the falsehood has the easy way to seem true.

A false rumor in their social networks
or a false report in a newspaper,
until it has denied can change a life.

So you better not believe everything you see published
until some time has passed,
to fight from falsehood to reality.

For instance, the exemplary people
 has endure a barrage of gossip and false rumors
that do not recognize their values.



Lionel Messi is perhaps the most recent example
and we want to give our support for him
because he is a model for overcoming.

He is a motivation on education.
Despite his drive and his juggling
he has never lost its simplicity and fellowship.

 We know he's smart to not let falsehood changes his life.
He has a important treasure: he loves his reality.


Perhaps there is only one way to stop the falsehood:
  use the common sense which can give a right view.
Maybe the Hippocratic Oath
should not be just a matter of doctors,
it could be to all trades and all professions,
or even of everybody :
Hippocratic oath against hypocrisy
and everything would be easier.

" Inaprehensible" is similar to "ungraspable, or elusive"


Il était une fois... from Indikade on Vimeo.


"Inaprehensible" is a Spanish word that we like,
  it includes a lot of things indefinable.
This vídeo remember us the magic of this word.
It's like a free "word" because it does not fit into a definition,
nor likes the classification, valuation or cataloging.

In fact it is a code that we have at birth
but we forget it because we must learn.
We are filled with concepts and definitions,
topics, judgments, abstractions and generalizations.

And when we're either busy with so much information,
we must go back to instinct and intuition.
We can look within searching this ungraspable code
to guide you in the unpredictable.



In fact, a baby knows when he is hungry or cold.
He can also realize when a stranger comes,
and he express us many things with her ​​moans
without having learned.

We must just put on his skin
sensing that it can happen
if we want to understand him.
We can relive instinctively when we were baby.


So study hard, passes the exams,
and get all you need for a place in the society,
but do not forget entirely what is really important.

Saves the special insights
 arising in you before the unpredictable.
It may be your best guide

expressed in a special way.

Emotional computing




Maybe we will coexist soon with robots
 that can interact emotionally.

The hardware and software experts 
are seeking ways
for to make receptive robots.

The software is like
the language of the robot 
and the hardware is his mounting.




These future robots would detect changes in our emotions 
for to take appropriate decisions.
 They be fixed in the pupil dilation, heart beat or even smells.
Maybe before teaching so much the machines, 
someone would have to teach ourselves.
We could know self-control without requiring the robot control.

Let's hope that these experts will make appropriate decisions
so that the result would be a better world
 without new complications.


This video can give an optimist vision
 about sharing emotions.

A new stage, era or eon within your vision

A stage can be a period of time,
an era can be a group of stages,
and an eon is a set of eras.

It may seem exaggerated to say eon
but it rhymes with vision
and we like practice new words.

In addition, in recent centuries spend more stuff in a decade
than in prehistoric times in one eon,
and now we have the emergence of a whole new vision.

We talk about the new Google Glass,
their goggle are now a reality
that can change our mentality.

We had the world within reach of our fingers,
now we have it available to our eyes,
under the instructions of our voice.

In fact it is a remarkable success of the technology
that it will invade our professional  life or family.

Some unanswered questions

Some qüestions unresolved

Questions without solution

Why in schools increasingly have more computers and fewer teachers?
How is that can spend money for weapons and don't have money for medicines?
Why politicians have official cars and don't see people that they represent ?
How do politicians need protection, is that they have done something wrong?
Why are there so many people without homes and homes without people?
How can we help the places where happen  disasters  without the aid deviate?
Why continue still researching technology that it removes the work to the parents?
What will I be when I grow if everyone says that the world go wrong ?
How come there is no money to help disabled and yes for conferences and meetings such as luxurious in which agreements are reached then not met?
Why people are jailed fighting for injustice and  is not done justice  with which they could avoid catastrophes?

Making of a Spider web

How? and, Why? 
are the favorite questions 
when we are children.

However, if we do not get answers, 
sometimes we stop asking and we stagnate.

Privacy or publicity

Except for some parts of the world
where Internet can't reach,
everybody lives exposed to its dual power.

On the one hand provides us access to almost all information
but the other hand is left with all our thought,
affinities, preferences and motivation,
And it's easy figure it out by deduction
everything that you don't  say directly .

Today the kids can access earlier to social networks,
when naivete and innocence still have a total transparency.

Everyone falls on the ambivalence to ask for privacy,
however everyone gives data that facilitate publicity.


Maybe this video entitled "Machines transparent"
can make you think about ourselves, 
that  we are who give data easily
for the losing our privacy.


Transparent Machines™ from beeple on Vimeo.


It's important don't obsessed with this subject.
A person who retains the innocence of a child
and has the wisdom of a grandfather
taught us this slogan:

"If you don't have to be ashamed
you don't have to worry about "



However, our DNA or genetic code soon will  all about us.

Or maybe in the not so distant
 a microcircuit will incorporate us at birth,
that allows us to access 
all the ambivalence of this process.

Grammatical & Visual

The visual memorization tricks
can help children with difficulty abstraction
and serve everybody in increasing motivation.

Our grammatical tour :
Basic parts of a sentence.


The subject is the main protagonist of the sentence.
You can find it by the question:  
    Who + verb ?  




The predicate is what is happening in the sentence.
You can usually find it by the question:   
    What do + subject + does ?  


This trip can be a memory trick. because the grammar learning
 is like traveling across a world of words.

Objects are nouns with information about 
the subject of  the sentence.
Other objects are nouns that receive
 the action of the verb.
