Computers Aid Children with Disabilities

Posted by marmara on September 5, 2010

In El Cerrito, California a group of parents, teachers and developers of assistive technology joined forces in 1983 and created the Disabled Children’s Computer Group (DCCG) with the goal of using computer technology to help those with disabilities to more easily speak, write, read, learn, and become a participant in the larger world around them.

Steve and Jackie Brand spearheaded the efforts to develop ways that computers could be used to assist adults and children with disabilities. They were inspired by the needs of their own daughter, Shoshana, who they felt could benefit enormously with the assisted technologies that computers had the potential to offer. Steve Brand took a sabbatical off from his job at Berkeley High School, and with his friend Steve Gensler they developed a large, flat keyboard for use by someone with fine motor skill deficits.

With their initial success the Brands decided to share what they learned about assisted technology with others in similar circumstances. Their first community wide meeting was held in Berkeley and attended by over 100 interested parents, teachers, computer experts, and adults with disabilities. In 1985 the DCCG was granted non-profit status, and was soon being contacted from people across the country. Apple computer company was an early sponsor, and they developed the original Apple IIe which could say text out-loud when an Echo Speech Synthesizer was hooked up to it and appropriate software from UCLA was developed.

It can have a high window of where I see the sky and the sea, but must have one I sing well sossegado where I can be alone, quiet, thinking my things, one I sing sossegado where one day I can die. The youth can live in these glad barracadas ones of cement, us needs solid ortalezas; the house must be before everything the inviolable asylum of the sad citizen; where it can bradar, without fear nor shame, the name of loved its: Joana, JOANA! – certain of that nobody will hear; house is the place of walking naked of body and soul, small farm to speak alone. Where I, that I do not know to draw, can take days trying to trace in the wall the profile of loved mine, without nobody sees and smiles; where I, that I do not know to make verses, can improvise songs in high voice for my love; where I, that I do not have belief, can pray the occult deities, that are only mine. House must be the preparation for the secret biggest of the tomb. BRAGA, Rubem. 200 Chosen Chronicles. 17 edition, Rio De Janeiro: Record, 2001

Ultraviolet Radiation

Posted by marmara on May 22, 2014

Sunbathing on the beach in the summer, we accept as to protect our skin from excessive exposure to sunlight, so as not to get burned. However, most of us do not know what is more important protection from the sun in our eyes. Rays of the sun – is not only our visible light, but also the invisible ultraviolet rays (UV radiation), which have harmful effects on all parts of the eye. Intense ultraviolet radiation can cause burns of the eye (photokeratitis), and prolonged exposure to uv rays increases the risk of dangerous eye diseases like cataracts and macular degeneration. To reliably protect your eyes from dangerous uv rays should be use sunglasses in conjunction with headgear. Hats with large fields or canopy greatly reduce the flow of light entering the eye. However, this is still insufficient to fully protect your eyes from uv radiation. You must use sunglasses.

It is important that sunglasses provide 100% protection from uv radiation and protects against high-energy blue-ray, as well hazardous to the eyes. Good sunglasses provide 99% protection against UV-B rays and 95% of UV-A rays. Provide better protection for glasses with a close-fitting shape, because they restrict the flow of rays, not only passing through them, but gets into eyes through his glasses. With prolonged sun exposure, use the form-fitting sunglasses. Note also that the degree of eye protection sunglasses on uv radiation does not depend on the degree of darkening lenses. 100% uv protection guarantee, many high-quality uncolored lenses. The choice of color sunglasses lenses – a matter of taste.

The most common brown, green, blue and orange. Gray preserves the natural color. From blue light better protect ophthalmic lenses of brown and reddish-copper tones. For each sport now has its own guidelines for choosing the color of lenses in sunglasses. Skiers, for example, the lenses of yellowish tones provide the best contrast. Among fishermen and water sports enthusiasts have traditionally enjoyed great popularity Sunglasses with polarized lenses, which not only protect your eyes from harmful uv rays, but also increase the visual comfort and image contrast by blocking part of the light reflected from the water. Polarized lenses enhance the quality of not only water but also on the snow in the mountains or even just on the highway because there reflected from flat surfaces of polarized light degrades the image contrast. If you are in Life always has to use spectacles (ie if you have myopia, hyperopia, or other visual defects), it provides great convenience glasses with photochromic lenses. Photochromic lenses in the room are as clear as conventional non-colored lenses, but in the open air under the action of solar uv radiation, they become almost as dark as the lens in the sunglasses. Glasses with photochromic lenses – perfect replacement of two pairs of glasses: Conventional and solar. Note that there are even photochromic polarized glass lenses, which have just two remarkable properties: they are obscured in the car, which usually do not penetrate the uv rays (Ordinary photochromic lenses "not working" in the cabin), and in addition they block the sun's rays reflected from the roadway. Sunglasses with lenses improve visual comfort and quality of the whole driver. However, when prolonged exposure under the bright sun it is better to use the sunglasses-fitting shape.

British Peru

Posted by marmara on May 3, 2014

The desdolarizacion of loans and current levels of low defaults on the loan portfolio are clear signs of a good context of macroeconomic stability and growth that make possible that generates increasingly financing in local currency. And in relation to the British private equity fund, Aureos Capital (investment fund which invests in medium-sized companies), the Peruvian news agency Andina interviewed last week to the company’s regional manager, Erik Peterson saying, about the Peru investment projections: we see lots of potential in the Peruvian market which is growing rapidly, its economy has had one of the highest rates of growth in the region and feel that growth is sustainable. For Peterson, Peru is becoming a country of interest to foreign investors: then, we feel also that greater long-term will continue having stakeholders from the sector of strategic in entering Peru capital and investors. I can not say that these specific items marked a definite trend, but are signs of the progress that has been taking the Peruvian economy. But also, these signs mark sponsors perspectives for the development of the Peruvian financial system. As he unveiled the Andina News Agency, the pension funds in Peru are growing at an annual rate of 20%, a level that is above the growth rate of the funds in the region (which is close to 15%), product of the decrease in labor informality and a higher rate of entry into the system.

Clearly the higher income of pension funds should seek profitable investments and will probably find them in the Peruvian economy and why not, in its capital market (do invest in Petroperu when it begins trading on stock exchange?). Moreover, the increased supply of financing in local currency will encourage a greater demand for both consumption and investment credits and mortgage (the latter, at a slower pace), which will accelerate the growth of intermediation. Finally, the economic stability of Peru and their possibilities for growth, probably will encourage the development of the industry of venture capital and private equity, that will enable many companies that need large investments to grow, to access financing and receiving external support. We must closely follow the evolution of the financial system in Peru to not miss opportunities that we will provide the same. You will find us again tomorrow, Horacio Pozzo original author and source of the article.

And without education can make a career. Yet again the question arises: why get vyssheeobrazovanie? Not so long ago, higher education was not necessary, not only in the legislative level, but also in public when people could choose which way they should go. Now, higher education – is a public law that has to go every man, who wants to succeed. This is not a path to success, as the laws of society for successful people. Still, every parent is convinced that in this society higher education is necessary, and, of course, every child already knows chtoposle school waiting for his high school. With an added question the Army boys. From the above story, we can draw some conclusions. Young people go to college, not really have a clear idea of the need for this education.

And in this time period when the Internet appeared, pronounced another trend – the depreciation information. And when the young man went to college, for him to acquire knowledge – not is the most precious process in learning. From here and there a lot of young individuals who want to ask a question "and zachemon went to college?>>. (As opposed to acaho). And then comes up trend "declining quality of education>> that does not surprisingly, at the approach – "a university higher education to all and all>>. As to the question about where to act, then we can say the following. Technical education: there are a number of universities, which firmly establish a reputation of those who prepare highly qualified specialists. At such colleges often receive people with "rich>> parents. These are the universities and professions where people came to really knowing "why?">> Why they need it.

That As wealthy parents, you always have a number of "prestigious> universities in which they enroll their children. Prichemetot number is constantly changing. And, most interestingly, a list of one year may be quite different from a list of other B Finally, I want to say that at present the deformation of the public consciousness with regards to the issue of higher education. When young people do not have a clear idea of what they were taught in high school, when knowledge and information loses its former value – the quality of education will certainly fall. Education – two-way process. Without a certain amount of effort the student, the efficiency of the teacher will tend to zero. And in this article was considered solely what proishodits young people. Of course, this is not the ultimate truth, but still, I think many of these have already encountered.

Its double preoccupation was the fight against the Protestantism and the Turks. It repeated: God has called to me to being franciscan for the conversion of the sinful ones and herejes. And indeed, it preached of incessant way in Italy, Hungary, Bohemia, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, France, Spain and Portugal. Supported by the Jesuits, it developed an admirable work in central Europe and seeded of franciscan convents great part of the nations in which it had preached. Lorenzo left a work multitude, among them more than 800 sermons, that occupy 11 of the 15 volumes of their complete works. They constitute an admirable example than modernly kerigmtica theology has been called, and this way to set out the eternal truths locates in the line of classic pastoral activity of the Holy Parents and the great doctors bishops to him.

It especially emphasizes its admirable Mariologa, of a truly extraordinary clarity of concepts. That is said that Lorenzo was the right arm of prince Felipe Manuel de Lorraine, who obtained in 1601 the liberation of Szkesfehrvr (White Regal) in a great victory against the mass of near 80,000 Turks, commanded by Mohamed III, was prepared to invade Estiria and threatened to conquer Austria, invading thence Italy and whole Europe. Lorenzo wrote a precious chronicle of campaign and although he would partly hide in her his characteristics of value, captains and soldiers acclaimed to him as the main author of the battle The 22 of 1619 July happened their death to him. Its body was taken to the Convent of the Announced one, nuns clarisas, Villafranca of the Bierzo (province of Leon), where it is venerated. Its tomb was profaned in 1808 by the French troops who occupied the city during the War of Spanish Independence.
