Museo do amanhã

02/15/2017 - 07:48 | AndréBrasil

Museo de mañana es un museo construido en la ciudad de Río de Janeiro, Brasil. El proyecto del edificio del arquitecto español Santiago Calatrava, fue erigido junto a la Praça Mauá, en la zona del puerto.

El edificio fue inaugurado el 17 de diciembre de 2015 y recibió alrededor de 25 mil visitantes en su primer fin de semana de operación.

La propuesta de la institución será un museo de las artes y las ciencias, así como exposiciones que advierten sobre los peligros del cambio climático, la degradación ambiental y el colapso social. El edificio tiene espinas solares que se mueven por el tragaluz, diseñado para adaptarse a los cambios en las condiciones ambientales.

La principal exposición es mayormente digital, y se centra en las ideas en lugar de objetos. El museo tiene alianzas con las principales universidades brasileñas, instituciones científicas y la recopilación de datos globales en tiempo real sobre el clima y la población de los organismos espaciales y las Naciones Unidas. La institución también tiene consultores en diversas áreas, tales como los astronautas, científicos sociales y climatólogos.

Como uno de los anclajes del proyecto de regeneración urbana llamada Porto Maravilha, El museo recibió en 2015, como un regalo antes de su inauguración, la escultura Resopló STAR II, el reconocido artista norteamericano Frank Stella. La obra consta de una estrella de 20 puntas y seis metros de diámetro que se instaló en el espejo de agua del museo, en frente de la Bahía de Guanabara. La escultura de metal, antes de la donación para la colección permanente del museo a cielo abierto, estuvo expuesta en la Ciudad de Nueva York.

Valentine's day

02/12/2017 - 06:58 | kallix

Valentine's Day, also called Saint Valentine's Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is an annual holiday celebrated on February 14. It originated as a Western Christian liturgical feast day honoring one or more early saints named Valentinus, and is recognized as a significant cultural and commercial celebration in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.

Several martyrdom stories associated with the various Valentines that were connected to February 14 were added to later martyrologies, including a popular hagiographical account of Saint Valentine of Rome which indicated he was imprisoned for performing weddings for soldiers who were forbidden to marry and for ministering to Christians, who were persecuted under the Roman Empire. According to legend, during his imprisonment, Saint Valentine healed the daughter of his jailer, Asterius, and before his execution, he wrote her a letter signed "Your Valentine" as a farewell.

The day first became associated with romantic love within the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the 14th century, when the tradition of courtly love flourished. In 18th-century England, it evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting flowers, offering confectionery, and sending greeting cards (known as "valentines"). In Europe, Saint Valentine's Keys are given to lovers "as a romantic symbol and an invitation to unlock the giver’s heart", as well as to children, in order to ward off epilepsy (called Saint Valentine's Malady). Valentine's Day symbols that are used today include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten valentines have given way to mass-produced greeting cards.

Saint Valentine's Day is an official feast day in the Anglican Communion, as well as in the Lutheran Church. Many parts of the Eastern Orthodox Church also celebrate Saint Valentine's Day, albeit on July 6 and July 30, the former date in honor of the Roman presbyter Saint Valentine, and the latter date in honor of Hieromartyr Valentine, the Bishop of Interamna (modern Terni).

Spanish learning problems

02/09/2017 - 14:19 | Antonio De Santiago

Hello everybody, mi name is Antonio, and currently I’m studying a degree in language teaching at University of Colima in Mexico. By this time they have asked us to start up with a research project. This project is based on the difficulties that learners have while they are learning a second or foreign language, especially with Spanish (it doesn’t matter if you’re learning another one). I’d be so glad if you can tell me and explain what the problem was, how it was, and if you were able to give a solution to keep on with your learning process.

Difference in English and Russian

02/08/2017 - 16:30 | trionghost

In my opinion the first thing which english-speaking people have to understand beginning to learn Russian (and wise versa) - is the difference in the whole structure of this to languages. This difference is (in technical terms) in mechanism of arrangement of words in sentences. I give you an example - 3 words known to everyone: "I love you" - this is how it looks in English. Not "Love you I" or "Love I you" but exactly in this sequence. The difference in Russian is that you can arrange words as you want, so: "Я тебя люблю", "Люблю я тебя", "Тебя я люблю" - are all right, but with slightly different colors. The emphasis in this sentence are on first word. So if you use second form you saying this as reason of some previous actions, and translates as "because I love you". The third is sounds like "I love you [not someone else]". And so on in almost any sentences. The main point here is that English sentence is like a matrix of data base in which every word must be on their location to understand overall meaning. In contrast in Russian endings and forms of words are some kind of indexes which point to role in sentence so you can just throw them into sentence and care only about how it sounds and where to put accents. If you have some thoughts about this, please comment :) Thank you.
