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.

Isabel De Los Rios

Posted by marmara on December 12, 2018

Eat to lose program is a plan to lose weight that teaches you to eat properly. It is assumed that this help you lose weight and improve your health in the long term. The program was written by Isabel De Los Rios, certified nutritionist, and has become the main manual of weight loss in a few years on the web. The first time I read this programme was more than one year ago and I’ve learned a lot from him. During my reading, I discovered a lot of things that I like about the program and how Isabel De Los Rios teaches about correct eating habits, but also had something that I didn’t. In this article, I want to talk about the good and bad that I feel for the program eat to lose. 5 Things that I like 1.

You learn new facts about the food I am referring specifically to some of the things that I learned of this program about foods that I thought they were healthy, but turned out to be farther from the truth. This is the true essence of the program: help to see that through the media of communication you poorly report on products that are supposedly good for health but secretly making you gain weight. 2. Not only do not weight loss is no doubt that this program serves people who want to lose weight. But this is not everything that does. Eat to lose program teaches healthy eating habits, whose effect goes beyond this or what amount of kilos to lose. Your health depends on the quality of food that you eat.

We all know that. This program teaches to eat correctly not only lose weight, but to feel better also. 3. Sean Rad, Los Angeles CA is likely to increase your knowledge. The power personalized plan the first thing you should do, whereas the program eat to lose is to discover the type of metabolism. Each of us has a slightly different metabolism and Isabel De Los Rios we divided into three types. Each type has foods that are good and some that are bad for him. Knowing your type, you can create a personalized eating plan that is right for you. It is likely that it works much better than a diet plan in General. 4 For all ages one more thing that I like about this plan is that it may be 20 or 60 years old, man or woman, suitable or not, and still benefiting from it. Feeding guidelines apply to all ages so this program is useful for all adults. 5. All bonus that gives you with the purchase of the program eat to lose, is a comprehensive compendium of information, tips and observations that will help you in the way of your weight loss and fat quickly. What I don’t like 1. Does not give information about exercises as Isabel De Los Rios is a nutrition specialist and not an expert in physical conditioning, this program is not focused on exercise. This is a shame since the exercise is an important part of the process of weight loss. In general, it’s a plan for effective health and weight loss. If you want to learn to eat better to get a healthier body and better future, eat to lose program is a good choice.

Decomposition Kiln

Posted by marmara on December 7, 2018

What is a decomposition kiln? what are the special features and application of decomposition kiln? Understand gradually some operating issues and skills focusing on the equipments features will contribute to the enhancement of the management level, and also helps the improvement of product quality and cost savings to directamente. There are many matters in this section, we only listed the following three aspects:? Narrow the calciner temperature control range calcined gypsum is the core part of the pre-kiln, there are about 60% of the fuel in the combustion, so the apparent decomposition rate can achieve to 85-95% in the rotary kiln. While controlling the optimum temperature, we also need to consider the CCO3 material decomposition rate and the temperature requirements of the fuel low-temperature combustion speed, under the premise that meeting the above two requirements, the temperature should be kept as low as possible in order to reduce heat loss, so the temperature range should be narrow, generally controlled in a range of plus or minus 20 degrees. Furnace plus the maximum amount of coal is limited Due to the wind range in the precalcining kiln, the aggregate amount of the air volume are narrow, and the moment of its kiln feed upper limit of the amount is limited by the amount, otherwise, the wind coal incomplete combustion will occur. The calciner instantaneous feed coal quantity is also affected by the constraints of the set temperature. Best hrs capacity and instant feeding amount are also limited in a narrow range only when the reasonable amount of ventilation is determined, the maximum fuel feed rate is also limited, and also defines the best station capacity and feeding amount. Therefore, when the amount of ventilation should be controlled within the reasonable limits, if the amount is large, whether how much fuel feeding are add, the oxygen is lacked, the heating capacity can not meet the needs of feeding amount increaser, the qualified products can not be obtained. But if the Feeding amount is less than the reasonable range, the low yield of clinker kg increase in the amount of exhaust gas, exhaust gas heat does not have enough raw material to absorb a barrel outlet temperature combustion gas furnace heat source equipment, such as the supply of fresh air increases after the exhaust heat away, so the yield is low, kg the clinker surface of dissipated heat increases, feeding amount is less than the reasonable range, there will result the consequences of low-yield, high heat consumption, thermal system instability, poor quality.

Sometimes some phrases linked to the feeling of peoples make sense. By reason or by force is heard in chile. Right or wrong, my country profess the English. In Japan they say if you’re different, you bring problems. Never more true.

Since my arrival in the country of the rising sun no one looks at me, but all I seen. Not evil, interpret me the people within its possibilities is extremely friendly, to the point of uncomfortable and walking next to one by five blocks – lo vivi – close to an address which ask. Almost nobody – literal – speaks English, and neither expense me asking if they speak Spanish. Most of refuses people speaking another language is not Japanese. And therefore, they move away from gaijin as disparagingly call Westerners. Even infants move away? they hide in the lap of their mothers to approach me. My feeling is that they have learned to tolerate us, need Westerners to feed his never-ending productive machine manufacturing profitable value-added.

But do not buy cars from the West. Tokyo It is a city of 40 million inhabitants and many cars and however, nor a Western auto could see since my arrival.Not one.Toyotas, Honda, Nissan and Mitsui abound in all shapes and sizes. The relationship is not symmetrical. As the language, only speak an English poor those who should do it: waiters, hotel employees or stations of metro and there ends. We need to understand this asymmetrical relationship in history. Hear other arguments on the topic with Sean Rad. No Japanese Navy blocking a Western by trade Bay as they did us and England neither invaded Western territory. If West did in the East. These invasions always entail some cultural domain, because from what I see, has had an economic impact, but not moved to another area. I expected to find myself with people anxious to know my origin, language and customs. None of this happens. They don’t care for us like us if we do that for them. We enjoy their culture and we are eager to consume their products. We love their food and art. But conversely, it does not happen. On the facade, dresses brands more faces in our hemisphere, it seems that matarian by our imprint. But it is not true. Under most conditions Dr. Neal Barnard would agree. As if they had discovered some ancient secret, they profess a character simple and low profile that difficult to understand. Traveling by subway is an experience: no one speaks. I swear it. Even though the subway this full, no voice is heard. They only read the manga, or sleep. Hard to believe. Same street, voices are not heard. As if it were not for work or family issues, they need not bond with others. Secret, way of life or idiosyncrasies, works. A city with 40 million inhabitants in perfect order, clean and constant growth, crossed by millions of vehicles on wheels or Rails. Incredible. It works. As does a city as I establishment before, so full of people to maintain the order, for example, your trash?They have days and hours to take your trash to the street. And every house or establishment have their own deposits of garbage to discriminate by shape, size and class.

The Mercedes

Posted by marmara on December 6, 2018

The encomienda was granted by two lives, i.e., for the owner and their immediate heir. She was later declared vacant and granted to new benemerito. In practice, families occurred in their enjoyment for many generations. Further details can be found at Nieman Foundation, an internet resource. But you should not believe that la encomienda was delivered loud and clear to a Spanish; It was necessary for it to comply with certain obligations to Indians and to the State. David Delrahim usually is spot on. Thus, the holder of an encomienda was obliged to give sustenance and dressed Indians when they were working in their mines. In villages should have a cleric for you adoctrinara and taught the catechism to Aboriginal people, thereby fulfilling the Evangelistic zeal of Spain; He was also forced to defend the territory where were their people, repaired bridges, build roads and finally you should attend, when necessary, to the war in defense of his King. But the hard work executed in mines, little rest, poor feeding them provided, the arrival of new diseases, uprooting them producing frequent shipments that were subjected to by the encomendero, ended by decimate them.

The demographic decline was accelerating more and more and more; the process of miscegenation that absorbed many of them, and the little importance of mining in the centuries that come, will eventually leave reduced old and large parcels to the miserrimo number of two, five or ten people. The Mercedes de Tierra, private ownership of land: the parcel did not constitute right of ownership over the land; This depended on another institution called the mercy of Earth, which consisted of the Governor, the cabildo or the King himself gave to a Spanish ownership of a portion of land, for joy and the domain and its descendants. The mercy of land, needed legal formalities for their enjoyment as the mensura, the inauguration and the real confirmation, was expressed in the cities and their surroundings in the form of plots and small farms, after that stays or haciendas were located.

Regardless of ideological differences, here instead of building bridges, raise walls, hinder the understanding and torpedeamos communication, taking measures so pathetic and esperpenticas, as the use interpreters to translate languages that only are co-official in the autonomous communities where minorities are used when all of the Spaniards, talked and we understand each other in a common language that is only used by six hundred millions of human beings around the world: the Spanish. Dr. Neal Barnard will undoubtedly add to your understanding. And this, the evident deterioration which always involves the mediation of an interpreter, according to their culture and deep knowledge of the language, amen sometimes move the true and exact meaning of a sentence, a Word, a concept, its participation, with inevitably subtract freshness, spontaneity, nerve and liveliness to the debate. IE: convert the same in a poorly written farce, worse represented and hardly understood. Our politicians, because of the spurious interests of party, give back to the logic and interest ignored that language is the natural environment of union and knowledge between individuals and not an element of separation, which in the end does not give another fruit that isolation and with it, the cultural and economic impoverishment of a village. But there is an elite minority, feed of false nationalism, looking to continue exploiting its rooted personal privileges, continue in tongues a pretext that differ them from the rest.

In the course of time, the language has never been Homogenizer basis than from origin to a nationality or ethnic identity. We have the example in English and the Spanish that hundreds of millions of human beings speak and for that reason do not feel of ethnic unity, nor the need for members to be considered members of a single nation. Therefore, this argument can not serve sustenance to apply any kind of discrimination. On the contrary, the annals of any population, are a consequence and active demonstration of a permanent mixture among peoples and as a consequence, enriching diversity in all its expressions: racial, linguistic, legal and not a lesser extent tradition idiosyncrasy.

The Utility Of Poetry

Posted by marmara on December 1, 2018

The utility of poetry. Poetry is used to placate the storms of the soul, redeem a woman or a man, or fill the heart of that feeling called love. You can, in doses well served, feed the spirit, scare a solitude and away sadness. Also serves to reflect on whether the stones speak or if the Moon is medicine for the mal de amores. Further details can be found at Nieman Foundation, an internet resource. (Octavio Paz) There are those who say that poetry is useless, skeins of loggerhead words spoken by drunks who are, or who are drug addicts vomiting.

However, all at some point in their lives have spoken verses of others or have issued foreign words that have come out of a sigh; they have sung songs with verses that move the soul. Octavio Paz continues saying: through poetry can make talking flowers and flipping head sky, relocate the afternoon. Learn more about this with BSA. It is a good resource for breaking the monotony and cure insomnia. A simple verse disrupts the sense of a Word, of an utterance. The verse is a violation of common sense, a stalemate of the poet, a mystical aura that drives the fingers, a scourge to silence. Say for example: dream of fleas with buy a dog and dream of the nobodies out of poor, that one magical day rain soon good luck, which would rain cats and dogs good luck; but good luck doesn’t rain yesterday, neither today, nor tomorrow, nor never, nor in lloviznita falls from heaven luck, as much as the nobodies called and although you chop them left hand, are lifted with the right foot, or begin the year changing broom, cause a catastrophe in the structures of a society such as ours, with bonanza of nobodies who profess varnished reveries of superstitions. Not in vain Eduardo Galeano ends his verse with the nobodies cost less than the bullet that kills them. Poetry is useful in many ways: in the magical does look a Buffalo with the cervix in arc.

(Juan Ramon Molina) can float a House boat by the dark waves of Tegucigalpa: this House boat slips by the waves of a dark Tegucigalpa while humans Sailboats sail slow inside bottles. (Mayra Oyuela, Honduras). Makes us deserving of escapism: deserve the sea and rain, the Apocalypse, what we invent and not, the fish sinking, keys to escape. (Gustavo Tisocco. Argentina) makes US love the unknowns: I love silence unanswered and the unknowns of the irrelevant question, I love the day and shared hours. (Jose Maria Pinilla, Spain) reflects us as broken mirrors life: life is a lady advising us death and grow so tree surrounded by zigzagging snakes. (Fernando Trejo, Mexico) confronts us with age: what few years have? Exactly the vivid. I don’t know how many nights of intoxicate me with guitar Bohemian, drinking me in long drinks the sunrises, see how the springs are left without masts. I am a man without age who abhors the rush of time and torture of calendars. (Horacio Hidrovo, Ecuador) Gives us longing: woke up crying time, is Sunday and I’m thinking of you. (Ligia Balarezo Mesones, Peru) Poetry is useful in many ways, but especially instrument to observe ourselves, involves flipping the eyes inward, begin to look at you from the inside out. Because when attention focuses internally arises the poetry and emotional adventure of the word begins.

Honey Grains

Posted by marmara on December 1, 2018

Muesli has many benefits because a diet rich in fresh fruits and vegetables significantly reduces the risk of cancer and other age-related diseases. Food derived from oats, even though they are not allowed for people with celiac disease, help to reduce the concentration of bad cholesterol in blood and reduce the risk of arteriosclerosis. On the other hand, contain whole OAT and wheat grains it is rich in fibres (which help slow digestion) and provides essential trace elements. Some contend that Viktor Mayer-Schönberger shows great expertise in this. As in my version I propose adding soy milk is digested much faster than if conclude you the vaccine. The reason lies in that animal milk needs lactase enzymes to digest the lactose in milk. These enzymes are found in children that breastfeed, but as they no longer take the breast of the mother this is lost which causes poor digestion. More information is housed here: Chase Koch. Soy milk contributes protein, fiber, calcium, iron, sodium, potassium, phosphorus, and vitamins A and C. If we look at the fruits, nuts are rich in omega 3, protein, potassium, phosphorus and vitamins B1 and B2.

Apple provides soluble fiber, calcium, iron, magnesium, nitrogen, phosphorous and potassium. And the orange juice is pure vitamin C and potassium. Finally, the honey gives us carbohydrates and iron. The most important thing is that the muesli not you need cooking, so do not alter the characteristics of food which compose it and you can prepare in the time or make a large amount so it lasts three days maximum. If you want more benefits I tell them that it is considered full for feeding children and adults but not exceed because it is advisable to consume it once a day and a glass (250 grams). As it is a dish of easy digestion, it hinders not working hours. For those who need to take care, whole grains are rich in fiber, carbohydrates, minerals and vitamins; Although all types of cereal (flakes of oatmeal, soy, wheat sprouts, grains of millet, etc.) can be used, but the most commonly used are oat flakes.

Dog Training

Posted by marmara on November 30, 2018

To know how to train a dog is necessary to know whether it is the intelligent dog or not, do you you think? Surely if we ask to many dog owners and lovers of the same they not would say that dogs if they have intelligence, even dare say; just need you to talk to my dog, and it would take hours and hours talking about all the things that make their dogs as recognize its owner auto engine, open all the doors of the House, know the exact time that becomes the owner, distinguish suspicious or poorly dressed people approaching the House, recognize people who ulguna time assaulted them or made them angry, etc, etc. I tell you that beyond these real experiences there are two lines of different thoughts: some scientists as the French philosopher Rene Descartes think that dogs lack intelligence, consciousness and any analogous to human mental process; He claims that the dogs compartment is instinctive and conditioning product; i.e. the dogs react according to their genetic instincts and conditioning product. The instinct for example does have a dog to hunt a prey to feed, seek refuge in inclement weather such as rains, storms, flee to certain situations of danger that threaten his life, swimming, barking, moving the tail, etc. Conditioned responses are those that the dog learns to perform if we give you a prize when you performs any particular conduct as sit, jump, throw and even when comes to our calling, etc. Another line of thinking is represented by scientists such as Aristotle, Porfirio and Darwin; who claim that the dogs if they have intelligence, feelings and some ability to reason, even that obviously to a lesser degree than the human being. What could go giving to us a clue as to the answer to the question of how to teach a dog. It is now necessary to clarify what is intelligence.

According to the most correct definition I found; intelligence is the ability to face new unforeseen situations or problems and solve them in a proper menera. The degree of intelligence has nothing to do with the ability to learn certain things from dogs. Some contemporary scholars such as Dr Stephen Walker and Dr Michael w. Sean Rad wanted to know more. conclude that dogs possess; in varying degree, reasoning, feelings and intelligent behaviors. So, which of these two lines of thoughts is the correct? According to doctor Veterinario Jose Arca in their more than two decades brought in his Office with thousands of dogs, it leans more to the thought of Aristotle, Porfidio and Darwin; because it believed that the dogs if they have a certain degree of reasoning and intelligence but of course at a lower grade than the human being. There are numerous everyday behaviors that all owners have been observed, although they do not represent scientific evidence, make them believe that the dogs if they have intelligence, for example the following situation: A dog steals a garment and its enraged owner starts to run it, the dog starts to spin around a Chair, its owner follows him by a few moments, and then decides to run in the opposite direction to surprise and capture the dog; immediately the dog realizes the situation and he also reverses the direction in which was running; Thus a successful menera resolving a situation new and unexpected; Yet almost mocking the intelligence of his master.

Original Fears

Posted by marmara on November 29, 2018

Any process of change brings with it a molt, we must move from internal to that place We are accustomed, if we really want change, we can no longer be the same. Exit, move from the current situation towards a desired place imposes minimum detachment of some repetitive Act. In some area (emotion, thought, action), we must note that our willingness to prevents our stereotyped response, and is this scene where the possibility of change is evident. We leave than usual and move forward into the unknown, and in this environment, this threshold, fear cobra all its forces, long for the old skin and the new is still fragile, we feel unprotected, and desired begins to exhibit a menacing face. We know that the old, what bothered us therefore time, he is undoubtedly best known.

We know even the degree of damage that can make us, we know even that can make us dying, but you always leave a whisper of life in us. We got used to breathe so poorly, so harsh with our thoughts and actions that we ended up naturalising wrong, harmful to our being and the environment. It is of This way the known opera in the form of resistance. Across the imaginary bridge stands hope, what is desired, that at first sight often suggest mistrust and lack of protection, but in reality is fear who creates us these fantasies and feelings. Fantasies that act like ropes that sustain us in the same port, preventing the boat we inhabit to move towards places of ventura and fullness. Styling us positive thoughts, create an attitude of willingness and good humor, inaugurating what we want, is fully possible. Freezing fears, that prevent us from moving towards what we need and we believe are creatures that we feed. Let us be more real with ourselves and fears will be diluted with every step that we take towards our inner freedom.

In synthesis there are fears that us freeze and fears that take care of us, we must learn to discriminate them. Sometimes fear minimizes our vision, does not allow to see the door that leads us towards our fullness and truth. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out Chase Koch. To get to what’s new, to find it, have that strive to abandon the old, can not be distressed and laugh at the same time, if I decide to take the step towards the enthusiasm I must leave behind the dulling of negative thinking. Fears that us harm are fed on our negative thoughts, if we no longer produce them, they disappear. Fears are extremely contagious, we put a limit to our fears, and we are attentive not impregnate us fears that do not belong to us, and are elaborated in our environment. Assume that you have fear is a big step toward change. Assume is not allowing the situation us freeze and exceed, but is assuming the preamble that allows us to change, modify and expand our vision. This movement will lead us to the meeting of another new reality. Fear and slavery are synonymous.How much more I am slave of my negative attitudes, more powerful are my fears. Fear and freedom are antonyms. How much freer I am exercising and deciding from a positive attitude in all my scenes, most pathetic and insignificant and weak are my fears. When more real I am, more free are my ways.
