The Advantages of Reading

Reading is an important component in the educational process. The advantages of reading are indisputable and endless- not only does it expand the vocabulary and improve the grammar of the readers, it also exposes them to new thoughts, emotions and ideas. The imagination is nourished through the act of reading. The ability to read also enables people to access information on a vast range of topics, from science to current events to history. With advanced reading skills, a person is never at a loss for entertainment or knowledge.

Those who love reading may want to consider joining a book club or subscribing to a magazine that focuses on a subject of interest. Often the hustle-bustle of life prevents people from settling down with a book, and so adding reading as an official part of the weekly schedule is a great way to ensure that this activity does not slip between the cracks.

What it is imagined then, to be the individual memory, in the truth is the union of the fragmentos of the collective souvenirs. My memory, therefore, is not alone mine, but she is collective, also belongs to those that had loaned the parts to me to mount the break-head. It can be said that the existence of an affective community, the existence of a group of reference, and to remain become attached to this group, to this community, are what of the consistency to the souvenirs, that in turn they will form memory. For Halbwachs the souvenir is a game of ' ' recognition and reconstruo' '. &#039 exists; ' feeling of already visto' ' , that it can be described as recognition. We have that, in certain way, to make a rescue of events that stops we they are differentiated of excessively, to the point to deserve our special attention.

But of form some such events will be able to be happened again in integrate, therefore, are necessary that let us make a reconstruction of this event, in order to try to be similar what it occurred in that occasion that we search. Being thus, as much the recognition how much the reconstruction, depends on the existence of a group of reference, in view of that the souvenirs retake relations social, and not simply isolated ideas or feelings, and that data bedding of and shared slight knowledge are constructed from a common. The memory is this work of recognition and reconstruction that brings up to date the complete picture of the break-head, that is, catches each souvenir it articulates and them between itself constructing one ' ' picture social' ' complete.

Tony Buzan

For example, if you choose the building of your faculty in the University as your Palace of memory, you could put the list above (computer, clock, beach, underwater, Leon, bottle, Eagle, camera photos, poster, book) in one of the laboratories of practice, associating each object in the list with objects inside that classroom. You could associate another list of objects to objects inside another room and so on. This is a much more complete than the previous system of memorization. Although it is also more complicated to learn and use at the beginning. 7. The alphabet (according to Buzan) system created by Tony Buzan. A word that begins with that letter or its pronunciation starts with the letter you choose for each letter of the alphabet.

Example: To Abbot B BEata C barley CH patent remember the list of objects by linking every word that corresponds to a letter with the object to be memorized.(A) with computer, beata (B) with clock, Abad 8-system greater also called Mental locker or phonetic code. Consonants are associated with numbers from 0 to 9 and, with vowels, words that are then bound form with objects to memorize. Do example: 0 r ring letter r appears in zero 1 t d Te 1 shape? It is similar to the inverted t letter. d by similar pronunciation to t 2 n, n year n has 2 sticks. n by similar handwriting n 3 m rust m has 3 sticks to remember the list of objects in the set order, you link hoop (0 position) or tea (position 1) with computer, clock, mildew with beach, 9-year Dominic system created by the British Dominic or brien, Volantes of the world memory Championships eight times.

National Center

THE participation of the engineering CIVIL in case disaster disasters that occur more frequently in our country are earthquakes, cyclones, the overflow of rivers and hills desgajes. Due to these conditions, civil engineering provides elements to help various agencies involved in case of claims such as the National Center of disaster prevention (CENAPRED) and the national system of Civil Protection (SINACROP). For example, in case of earthquake, inspections of the damage structural in houses, buildings, shopping malls, stadiums, auditoriums, hospitals, markets, roads, drainage and drinking water, installations of gas distribution systems and electrical, are carried out to assess their stability and operability and, if necessary, take appropriate measures to not increase the damage and immediately restore the primary services of water, drainage, electricity and roads. This is why are created brigades involved with machinery and special equipment in the case of landslides and affectation to roads, according to attack emerging programs; This is how he is achieved to avoid to the maximum risk, both for the population and for public services. Also makes a special emergency rescue heliports verification, for at the time they provide effective support in the rapid transfer of injured to nearby hospitals.

In terms of airports, tracks, taxiways and platforms are reviewed to assess the safety of the operation and ensure the adequate arrival of aircraft with supplies of aid (food, water, medicines, and so on). In the case of roads pavement inspection is performed and is reviewed if there are landslides that clog circulation; If so, detours to ensure its use, that are established inspecting bridges and tunnels. For the above machines and skilled staff to manage them and remove the debris located in advance. Also, if required, to open paths of offsets of the disaster area and restore the land communication path. In the same way is for the inspection of railroads and facilities. With respect to sanitary works, pumping systems inspections are made. Science and development in your case, the damages that could present drainage systems and sewage treatment plants. On the other hand are revised drinking water distribution systems, its storage tanks as well as systems of pumping and driving to the net of the population.

In the case of floods and desgajes, reinforcing the banks of rivers and unloader of the flooded area roads are established. In the desgajes hills, is to remove the material with tool, equipment and machinery, taking all precautions to not put workers at risk. In terms of the works hydraulic, different types of prey and their operating systems are inspected to see if affectations who suffered would endanger their operation. There is damage, relevant emergency measures are taken and shown the eviction of populations that may be at risk. In all cases, is a civil engineer who will give instructions of how to carry out the work of inspection of the works and, where appropriate, the work of rescue, removal and prevention, all this in order to avoid major damage caused by the disaster damage. CONCLUSIONS is required to the entire population of the country aware that natural disasters can occur at any time and we must be on constant alert. For this reason it is essential to promote information on the prevention of disasters (CENAPRED) and perform systematically corresponding evacuation drills, which teach people what to do when accidents happen and fully identify close security points in your space everyday. That is how civil engineering collaborates with the culture of prevention in Mexican society. Article written by engineer Miguel angel Linares Faustinos. Original author and source of the article.

Twentieth Century History

Different materials, different sources, but most agree that they have appeared owing to sea mines. Why sea mines? Quite simply, if you have a gun – you need support. Development began in the 18-19 age but not reached the required level. That's why experts say the successful use of the torpedo boats with only the 20 th century, to be more precise, since 1917. If studying a man who sees everything, he noted that during this time. First World War.

Namely, it was the British boat company "Thorneycroft". This model is also called "the 40-foot boat." However, they did not bring enough Vysokova result atttake as their followers, "the 55-foot boat." They were first used June 17, 1919 is already against the Soviet Baltic Fleet. Then the development of a few torpedo boats sank, not because of the fact that there were no opportunities for development, but because of lack of reasons for the development. However, when I started opportunity to mature. World War ii. Dramatically increased the number of light military equipment in general, especially in the ussr, including torpedo boats.

Each country of the enemy or allied countries had their torpedo boats. Y each had its advantages – higher development, lower, and depending on the economic and political situation of the country. So in England – it was mtv – speed 37 knot, 533-mm single-tube torpedo launchers, 2-3 guns Screening 7,62-12,7 mm to 4 depth charges. In Germany – S-Boot., Displacement of 115 tons, length 34.95 m, the speed to 40 knots, armament two 533-mm torpedo tubes and two 20-mm anti-aircraft gun. The Soviet boat was in first place on = basic criteria. F-5 – had displacement of 17 tons, a length of 20 m, speed over 50 knots, was armed with two 533-mm torpedoes (torpedo in the gutter) and two 7,62 mm or 12,7 mm machine guns. And, of course, the main countries for technical development to date – the United States. Boat type pt 103 – displacement of 50 tons, a length of 24 m, the speed to 45 knots, four 533-mm single-tube torpedo launchers, 12.7-mm machine guns and 40-mm anti-aircraft machine guns. But the war ended, and development has been somewhat on hold. Why? Because it appeared rocket weapons and their use more effectively. Many countries refused to torpedo boats completely and forever in favor of the missile. Only a few continued to use the boats – the ussr, Germany, Norway, Sweden, China, Israel, but times have changed, as now it was not necessary to attack the enemy has changed and the application – torpedo boats were used as patrol, fighting light forces, submarines. So what has changed and characteristics. Postwar boat was moving slowly – 42 knots, tonnage 268 tons, a length of 38.6 m, four 533-mm single-tube torpedo tubes (torpedoes '53-56 '), 2 twin automatic gun mount AK-230 (30 mm). But at the same time there were boats with missile-torpedo armament. By the end of 20 century torpedo boats nearly outlived itself – around the world there are only 162 rocket-torpedo, "clean" – 47. And the disappearance continues

Frequent

The method is simple, as all the good things and functional, however, ambient reasons have soldier on barrack duty that such process occurs satisfactorily in the last times, frustrando, thus, thousand of dreams to have its functional utility and reason of justified existence. Proper I, reiterated times have to materialize attemped me without success, and I look at that it is not guilt mine: I possess excellent curriculum vitae, and esbanjo physical vitality. First, we face the frequent dryness of some deserts constructed with a mass tar, the one that call of asphalt, and stone pavements that do not leave at least an opening for any brotinho, who will say a mud puddle. Walking herculeamente in that environment mrbido and hot, where we come across with hasty and very sizudas figures, we can with luck, to arrive at some periphery, where with little possibility some land can be found, but this very barren, and as already I explained, for not terms roots, never in penetrating it. In this environment, not rare in them they pass quick vehicles of the age of the information, that raising one mundareu of dust, in them full the pulmes of bricks. After very walking, to look at daqui from there and, some fortunate dreams finally find so dreamed and natural mud puddle, and without blinking they are launched of head in its possibility of life, but thus the problems had still not been finished. But they had started, therefore to dry itself will be one another great obstacle, since the pollution has been so great the point of empalidecer the necessary sun the drying of our mud, and before exactly to be dry, ready, it is acid rain there stops dissolving in them and diminishing all our expectations of materialization. Really, Gentleman, ours in case that not if it deals with whim or lacks of contemporaneizao attempts, therefore already we search in them to adjust to modernity, substituido the old grudenta mud puddles for the uniforms and good dosed cement masses of the concrete trucks mixer of the trucks.

Car Maintenance Fluid Brakes

Car brake fluid is a fluid, whose mission is to allow you to convey to the strength that we have to slow down on the pedal to brake on the wheels of cars cylinders. Therefore good car maintenance involves controlling this component and review it periodically. What is composite? In the majority of cases it is composed of polyglycol, and less frequently of silicon and mineral oils. The most important thing is that the boiling point is very high and very low freezing. Otherwise damage the brake, since he suffers from extreme temperatures, by the use of the brake, and extreme weather. He is recommended for maintenance of brake fluid, reemplazaren a period between 2 and 4 years, or in kilometers, about 40000 km.

It is be careful if you dare to change it without going to a workshop, as the liquid is toxic if swallowed, irritates the eyes if you contact them, and does the same thing with the skin. Before changing it we must place goggles and gloves protectors for their manipulation. In addition we must hand an empty container to catch the old fluid. Another factor to take into account is the amount of water in the liquid, since ratios above 3% can cause vapor bubbles, which unlike liquids, are compressible. Also water can corrode the ducts of brake fluid, and it can aggravate the wear of the piston. Brake fluid most commonly used in the market today is the DOT 4. D eebullicion maximum temperature is 230 degrees Celsius.

An order of wheels it is recommended to change the brake fluid. It would be first the left rear, right rear, and finally left front, right front. THE procedure to change the liquid must not leave the circuit without liquid at any moment, because otherwise it would air in the system. This could trigger a nothing effective braking. Finally recommend that, due to the character of corrosive liquid, if spilled on the plate of the car or similar, are clean immediately, or otherwise be eaten paint or material in an instant. If the braking system fails systematically, and brake fluid is in an optimal state, already we would talk about the need for a change of brakes in the car. Original author and source of the article.
