La Odisea, El Hades. Con Renata Marty

Durante la clase de lengua, nos pusimos en parejas, y a cada una nos tocó describir una parada del viaje de Ulises. Con Renata Marty  nos tocó relatar la visita de  Ulises en el Hades.

La Odisea

Hades

 

Al irse de la tierra de Circe, la diosa ordena a Ulises que él vaya al Hades a visitar a Tiresias, para que este le diga su destino.

Al llegar a su destino, esté ve las almas de muchos guerreros que pelearon en Troya, y el alma de su madre, la cual él no sabía que había muerto.

Para poder hablar con Tiresias, Ulises debe entregar su sangre, pero, al cortarse, muchas otras almas aparecen. El no debe dejar que estas almas beban de sus sangre hasta que no aparezca Tiresias. La primera alma al llegar fue Elpénor que estaba sin sepultar. Y habían dejado su cuerpo en en la casa de Circe. Después llegó la alma de la mamá de Ulises que estaba viva antes de que ulises de marche estaba viva. Después de esto llegó Tiresias y le dijo que se marche y que lo deje beber la sangre pasa que le diga la verdad. Lo que le dijo fue que no crea que Zeus se olvide de la ira que le hizo, pero que finalmente llegará a su patria y allí encontrarán unas ovejas si les hacen daño él y sus compañeros morirán y si el se salva encontrará nuevos males en su casa (los pretendientes). Después de Tiresias le contara la verdad la madre de ulises le contó cómo iban las cosas en su patria y como estaban los familiares. Después llegó Aquiles.

Trabajo Practico de Educacion Etica y Ciudadana. Con Gonzalo Hartstein.

  1. A) Gobierno: Es uno de los elementos que componen a un estado. Es la institución que toma las decisiones y es encargada de la condición política. Aquellos que ejercen el poder político mediante la toma de decisiones, la elaboración de políticas públicas y el diseño y la aprobación de las leyes del Estado son parte del gobierno.
  2. B) Bienestar: Intervención de las instituciones estatales en la organización de lo social y lo económico. Fue una respuesta a las crisis económicas de las primeras décadas del siglo 20. Regula el funcionamiento del mercado, promueve la generación de empleo y alienta el consumo. Se centralizaron en garantizar el cumplimiento del cumplimiento de una serie de derechos económicos y sociales, como la salud, la educación, la vivienda, la seguridad social y la protección de las condiciones laborales.

Es decir, cada Nación tiene un grupo humano que comparte un mismo idioma, una historia común y una serie de tradiciones y costumbres que lo diferencia de otras comunidades. También es necesario en una nación que los individuos que la componen, se sientan parte de una misma comunidad, y que se reconozcan con derecho a gobernarse a sí mismo, darse sus propias leyes y tener un Estado

Variation and Selection

“Working in pairs, you watch the videos on the entry and take notes, brainstorming, using bullet points, etc…, to answer:” I have worked with Valentina Pernarcic.

What did I learn today? Question it.

I have learnt that variation is the differences between the organisims from the same species, intraspecific, or between different species, intervariation. The causes of variation may be by genetic, like meiosis, mutation or fusion of gametes, or environmental, which affects how genes are expressed, influence. When living organisms reproduce themselves, their offspring are not the exact copy of them, they are different from their parents and from the other offsprings. Each offspring gets a different combination of genes from their parents and thats why they end up being all different.

The variations that make an animal or plant more likely to survive in an environment are called adaption. Adaption makes the organism succesful, which means he is able to survive and pass on those characteristic that helped him survive in that environment.

Project on Charles Darwin

In class the teacher gave us the task of reading some PDF, that would have some questions and we would hve to answer them. I worked with Marina Castagnino:

Project on Charles Darwin

The Beagle Voyage

 

Botofugo Bay: English

 

Task:

  1. Read through the letter and diary extracts and answer the letter questions.
  2. Write a poem or create a word cloud in the shape of a map of South America using Darwin’s words to describe the landscape that he sees.

Think about:

– What is the landscape like?

– What is the weather like?

– What does it feel like to be there?

 

Answer:

Poem:

I might be on land, or at sea,

but as I turn my head, that’s all I see.

Full of insects, all shapes and aspects.

And all the animals, with their characteristics,

they even look artistic.

No matter the size shape or age,

they are all over the same place.

But no matter where I stay,

my mind is blown away,

because of all of these similarities,

I might think that they come from the same parents,

but that’s not how it goes,

it’s just evolution doing it’s job.

 

Letter question: Unimagined sights and pleasures

Using letter 168: Charles Darwin to William Darwin Fox and the diary entries: 16 January 1832, 29 February and 1 March 1832, answer the following questions:

 

  1. According to the letter and diary entries, list the different things that Darwin has been collecting.
  2. In the letter and diary entries Darwin describes two different things that have impressed him most, what are they and what does he like about them?
  3. In the letter and diary entries Darwin mentions Claude and Humboldt, who is he referring to and why?
  4. In the letter, how does he try to make his friend Fox envious of him?

 

Answers:

1.Throughout the Beagle Voyage, Darwin had collected and studies Insects, Birds, and Tortoises, and how amongst them they have similar features, appearances, and ways of feeding, moving, hunting, communicating, and many other factors.

2.The two things that have impressed Darwin the most are the vivid Flora&Fauna, and how there are different types of animals in different islands, such as tortoises, that share the same, or similar characteristics amongst themselves.

3.(Claude was not mentioned) Humboldt is a cold ocean current of the South pacific, flowing North along the coasts of Chile and Peru.

4.In the letter, Darwin keeps mentioning all the magnificent sights and all the amazing animals that are in America, all of them, which his friend Fox is missing out on. So, by mentioning all the amazing things in America, Darwin makes Fox envious, making him wish he was there with him. “This is a proper piece of Bravado, for I would walk through many a mile of sleet, snow or rain to shake you by the hand, My dear old Fox.” Darwin finishes his first letter towards Fox saying he would do anything to see him again, or just shake his hand. Darwin, by mentioning what he would do to just shake his hand, is saying that he deeply misses him, and wishes to see him again.

 

Galapagos Islands: Science/Geography

 

Task:

  1. Read through the letter and diary extracts and answer the questions.
  2. Imagine you are trying to recruit volunteers for a modern natural history scientific expedition to the Galapagos Islands to study giant tortoises. The study must have minimal impact on the environment. As part of the recruitment package you need to show:

– How you will travel to and between the islands

– Length of the overall expedition and how volunteers will spend their time

– What equipment will be provided

– What accommodation will be provided

– How the research will be carried out

– What kind of data/ specimens you will send home

  1. Design a brochure for your package and promote your expedition to your class.
  2. Create a diary entry for a modern day expedition to an island, describing your day and what you might encounter.

 

Answers:

 

DISCOVER THE GALÁPAGOS

 

A once in a lifetime trip to the Galápagos Islands is easier than you think!

When you think about the Galápagos Islands, giant tortoises and Darwin come to your mind. We invite you to join us for a scientific expedition in this amazing archipiélago. Join a group of travelers and experience the flora and fauna of this incredible place aboard the Oasis of the Seas.

Begin the Journey in Quito, Ecuador´s capital city. Then fly to the Galápagos Islands. Our boat, the Oasis of the Seas, will transport you from island to island. Our aim in this trip is to identify how many tortoises are left of the Chelonoidis Nigra, a new species recently discovered in the Bartolomé and Isabella islands.  As the study must have minimal impact on the environment, travelers will not be allowed to collect materials from the islands. Instead, they will have to photograph as many turtles as they can. This information will be of utter importance and will be delivered to the Quito Science Museum for further analysis by experts.

 

TRIP DETAILS

  • Dates: December 4-7, 2017
  • Cost: $5,000 per person all included
  • Material provided: waterproof digital camera/film with battery, waterproof flashlight, ground cloth.
  • Accomodation: travelers will stay at the Oasis of the Seas.
  • Space limited to only 30 participants
  • Contact our team for details atl 1-800- 222 9999

About the Study Leader

Cecilia Adem, Professor of Biology, Las Cumbres School, will serve as study leader for this program. Professor Adem is a specialist in evolutionary biology. Her research focuses on Galápagos tortoises. Her more recent book, An expedition to the Galápagos, was released in fall 2016.

Diary Entry:

 

Dear diary,

Last week I went with tourism group to an island in Galápagos archipiélago. Among other activities, we visited the Charles Darwin Research Station to see the famous giant tortoises.

We have also done wonderful activities, such as animal encounters. Life varies from island to island, other than tortoises we were able to see: sea lions, seals, iguanas and penguins. Bird Watching was amazing! There were so many beautiful and exotic species.

The sea was also incredible. We swam and snorkelled in the pacific ocean. The tour guide took us on a boat to the middle of the sea, from there we dived into the sea. My group and I were lucky to see lots of different marine species. Each of my companions, and me too, brought a waterproof camera so we could take pics of the tortoises underwater. In my opinion that was the best of the activities!

On the other hand we made lots of great activities on land too! For example hiking. What do you think about walking over lava beds? Well, that’s where the tour guides took us! I was shocked by the fact that we were walking in real lava. I’ve never done such a thing like that!

 

Letter questions: Plan an expedition

 

Using letter 295 and diary entries from 25 September and 1 and 9 October 1835, answer the following questions.

 

  1. From the letter to Henslow, what topic did Darwin find very instructive on the Galapagos Islands?
  2. In the diary extracts Darwin discusses a key aspect of survival on any expedition to a remote place. What is it and what makes his accounts of the encounters with animals different from how we would expect a scientific expedition to be reported today?

 

Answers:

 

1.In Darwin’s opinion, the topic he found more instructive and amusing in the Galapagos islands was the Geology (how earth is composed).

  1. In the diary extracts Darwin discusses a key aspect of survival on any expedition to a remote place,We think that he says that is fundamental to always carry water wherever you go. This idea came to his mind when he saw all those tortoise drinking large amounts of water. In our opinion what makes his account of encounters with animal different from how we would expect a scientific expedition to be reported today, is that he writes everything he sees ( such as the tortoise and the lizards), and tries to enters in the role of each inhabitant of the different islands. What I read is that one day he might eat with the “gauchos”, what they eat most of the time. Or he could spend an entire day with the inhabitants trying to learn their cultures.
