School days

  I began my school days in Paraiso de Cartago, the place that I was born, in a small school called Fray Jose Antonio de Liendo y Goicoechea, the same institution where my brother graduated. I took in all his tips because him had known all the teachers; we were used to call them "niña", because the majority of them was women. I was in this school by five and a half years; when I was in sixth grade my family received a bad notice and we had to move at Perez Zeledon. I finished my sixth grade in a big school called 12 de Marzo de 1948 in the middle of the city. I took on that the move wouldn't affect me because I was a sociable person always. 

In the high school, the new classrooms and the new courses didn't scared me, rather this facts prepared me to take off all my fears. The teachers in all occasion gave me a good instructions to understand all that could be difficult for me in those years. I knew all kind of people in Liceo UNESCO, in the institution that I studied, people with a good economical situation, and others were not this luck. But the most important value that I learned in the high school was don't guide me by the appearances, because I met all my friends in eighth grade and today they are my confidences guys. They maybe weren't the most popular boys and maybe they weren't rich, but always they were in the right time.

All these experiences taught me to take out the good things of lived events, and learn what were the mistakes in the bad things. All of this made me a strong person and I know that I can choice a good option in an important decision.

Advantages of technology

Antony Calderón

Technological advances


“Any thing, action, process, method, and system can be slapped with the word “technology.”” (Kline, 2009). This words describes a reality of our days because it’s happening today in our daily life. Technology has improved quickly due the process and necessities of the population. Theories of experts about first human say that they had to use your own imagination to create new form of killing animals for your alimentation; this is a principle of technology and one of the most necessary characteristics in tech. The use of imagination can be something really expensive because first you need to create a prototype of device and this, if it’s really useful, it can be too expensive. The most important field in the develop of technology is, principally the engineering, but is necessary include the maths and the philosophy, strangely enough.

In the the origins of technology, the wit of the primitive people used to survive the cold and then they discovered the fire for their necessities. Tools are really important in this process, the fed of animals meat and in many times was really big animals and they created forms of kill these animals without many efforts. “Some of the philosophical problems the nowadays technique and technology are confronted with are related to the definition of concepts, the cultural value contained in them, and place they have in the European culture” (Pop, 1993), she help us to describe the role of the philosophy in the technology, she said that the scientifics nowadays are separate of their field and the philosophy always had been systematize the terms of technology but scientifics always change this and create confusion in many people. Unfortunately, the develop of the technology has been linked with the wars in the history; for example the technology of the espionaje increased in the second world war if we compare to the first world war.

One of the most important fact in the technology in the history is the industrial revolution, because this mark a change in the economical and social structure. In 19 century it started to create railways with combustible and electric power. In our times when we talk about technology, in our mind arrive an electronic components like computers and cellphones, and maybe and this is an important part of the technology. Science and technology have been inseparables since ever because they try to improve the forms of using the technology and one of it’s the medicine. It is really altered from the principle, because in the birth of the medicine the techniques were so rustics and now many machines are useful and save many lives. One of the fields more improved by the technology is the communication, first with the big cell phones, and now with all kind of smartphones.

Education in our times has changed in many ways, because now if you want to know something you just have to search in an explorer in Internet. Many students have forgotten that they have to take information with sense because not all information, on the web, is true. So, what's the problem with the technology?. is something that Einstein knew many years ago when he said: "I fear the day when the technology overlaps with our humanity. The world will only have a generation of idiots." He said that because the people don’t know how to use the technology and they were trapped in the technological world. Many people are controlled by the internet, and internet is, in many situations, a fake life; and when the people have to face to the real life, is really difficult that this people can solve problems easily in their lives.

In technology we just have one option, we need to take the mistakes of the our antecessors and try to learn of them because we don't know what would happen in the future. Contamination is the principal problem, our water has been affected by this and the future of the next generations is in danger. We need to try to spend less objects in technology and reuse all the material that isn’t useful. The education have an important part on this, because the new generation can learn about reuse and forms to use the materials that aren’t dangerous for the health. We can’t be selfish, let’s start change of our mentality and focus on the best way: be responsible with the waste of each one and try to recycle them.

Group of music that I admire

How many types of music can be found in the world? Which are the best? These questions can be really difficult to answer because we live in an extended world with variety of music and all of us have different ways of thinking, and this is how music was born. We all have different tastes when it comes to music; music describes our personality. For example, in many occasions, reggae music can change a person’s way of dressing, and at the beginning, this was one of the reasons why I did not like that music. It was kind of repetitive for me, but last month, when I participated in the International Festival of Arts, I found a different style of reggae and this band changed my way of thinking about this music. The band name is Sig Ragga.

This group is born in Argentina, Santa Fe in 1997. They has been fusing reggae music with other kind of rythms like rock and jazz. They have, today 2 CD in their discography; they have a lot of time searching a style that identifies themselves. A particularity fact in this group that caught my attention is that they created your own language in various tracks of the group, it is really difficult create something that don't exist, and more if is a language; and they put this in their songs and these have sense in the musical structure, is too much incredible. They use a differents kind of instruments: The principal is the piano, this is played by the same principal voice, and I think is the brain of the group; his brother is the drummer, they wrote many lyrics together; the electric bass is fundamental in this band because it join with the drums; two kinds of guitar the first one is the electric guitar and the other one is the acustic guitar; and the secundary percussion gives an special datails in the style of the group.

I just wanna talk in general aspects about my favorite band music, if somebody want to understand my feelings, need to listen their discography, the lyrics are incredibles because have a critical content, and it give us a different perspective of what happen in the world.
