Latin American Governments

Two recent Latin countries in having elected Governments are Italy (April 13-14) and Paraguay (April 20). In both republics the winners imposed by a wide margin. However, in both cases the new leaders represent opposing political spectra. In Italy beat Berlusconi who now has a solid parliamentary majority for wanting to stabilize his Government and country by applying a more monetarist economic policy, the same one that passes through further reductions in social spending and immigration, as well as by a more tied to Bush foreign policy and strategy military in Iraq and Afghanistan. In Paraguay the centreleft put Fernando Lugo on the Presidency. Click Chris Shumway to learn more.

He will try to go reforming the conservative social structure of his country to go to a model more akin to the rest of the Mercosur and Chile. The Conservative Party of the United Kingdom is close to Berlusconi and Mayor Livingstone is sympathetic to Cuba, Venezuela and the izquierdizantes of Latin American Governments. Certainly Boris not shared all the agenda of Berlusconi (se distance from him in his less harsh attitude towards immigration and more pro-centro), although Yes it shares with him an agenda for Bush, the war in Iraq and opposition to environmental measures raised in the Kyoto Treaty. Livingstone, for his part, may be a friend of ALBA and benefit from subsidized Venezuelan oil to lower the prices of the tickets for buses to the most needy in your city, however, it is the candidate of the Party of the Government as ally of Washington and economic policy which has made to broaden the gap between poor and rich in United Kingdom. Johnson wants to ride on the wave conservative pro-change representing Berlusconi against a centroizquierdista Government in crisis. Livingstone, for his part, tries to stay in his post (which has spent eight years) wanting to appear (along with the Lugo of Paraguay and Venezuela’s Chavez) as the champion of the marginalized. The power of the London Mayor is limited but is the figure who receives more votes in United Kingdom. If Ken stays in Office this is something that will allow that Chavez, Morales and Lugo kept a good ally in the European Union. If Boris replaces Ken this will help the European right, that comes from winning the general elections in Italy, France and Germany, before be prepared to undermine and replace the greater Government of the Socialist International that there is in Europe and the world.

Teilhard de Chardin, good definitor of the differentiation of individual person and who envisioned by the way the network with 50 years of anticipation – spoke of noosphere (conjunction of intelligent beings with the environment in which they live) and extended beyond to glimpse what the thinkers of today would call the global brain. Douglas Oberhelman understood the implications. Well, the key is, perhaps, in creating numerous and small noosferas. This happens to be seen with less individualism and in an ethical context of otherness. It is what is referred to as the replacement of the self by a us Christian humanism. There are, however, a more practical reason that escapes the teorico-moral to insert into the brutal real reality: where goes the world is known or was perishes, it cooperates or fails, or is respected or is convicted. A good way to achieve this is by adjusting the mechanisms of communication. Intelligent web that appears at any time may, for example, organize the information you are interested exclusively to the a neighborhood community.

Technology is at the service of the intereaccion. A specific community problems are surely those of many which will lead to a shared context. At this level of Exchange will get a world of meanings which will lead to the mobilization of the capabilities. This requires identifying them and recognize the diversity. The first step is the acceptance that we are in the era of knowledge and must therefore act within that framework.

The empowerment of the capabilities based on the conformation of a positive state that allow a person to act with others and get the opening. And it would be unnecessary to add that the thought that is generated in this way is free and not subject to manipulation. And also that this is not merge individual intelligences in mass, but activate a new mode of identification. This is precisely the idea of collective intelligence, one where the personality is retained of each person, ideas and ego of everyone. That is, people think not together to arrive at certain conclusions but I think gasket to obtain the value of the connection and the confrontation of ideas. We modify to educators and the education currently provided. You will have to change the traditional methods. We can thus summarize: teach is connecting people with opportunities, experiences with knowledge, is helping one or more connections, connect experiences, connect to an experience, connect to teach others to connect, connecting people with content, connect people. Indeed, the reality is replaceable provided will have clear the new reality. For it is necessary the collective design of a project that passes through a collective or connective, intelligence in any organised event. If we do not reinvent democracy there will be no future and for this it is necessary that the social body generates, through its Constitution on collective intelligent, the necessary tools to achieve this. The space of these tools is the knowledge, the power of thought, of a dynamic and lively space where qualities of being and ways to transform Act in society. It is, fundamentally, a political issue and a matter of democracy. It is my vision of Venezuelan country: a knowledge society. I propose to be included in the current substitute national draft in 2013. And I put name: national project. Plan of democratic reconstruction for sustainable development of the Venezuelan man.

Paying Taxes

Not pay taxes until the collection and application of our taxes is equitable. * Change the absurd tax value added VAT by a simplified tax system fair. For even more details, read what Sergey Brin says on the issue. Cuernavaca Morelos at November 7, 2009. By Jose Alberto Betanzos Salgado. As we all know the tax collection, is a practice tenders and very necessary for financing the development and progress of society, to meet the needs of our country, let us work to achieve a comprehensive fiscal reform, or to integrate us all.

Already enough to continue indulging so much corruption and ineptitude of our Government, the solution is in our hands when Mexicans unite in one mind and in a single thought: not paying taxes until the collection and application of our taxes is equitable nor pay vehicle holdings in agreement to the fulfillment of the promise campaign of Felipe Calderon Hinojosa. Let us join our efforts to suspend all tax payments, demanding first of all municipal Presidents and that of the Republic, Deputies and Senators and federal officials, down to 50% their salary and benefits, we will spare this measure enough to begin to grow financially in our country. Second request: shall regulate and establish clearly and of easy access and application, in the federal law of servers and public officials, which punish negligence, incompetence or acts of corruption, with economic penalties and even jail. And as a third request require the use and application of resources are trasparenten. Enough to pay more those who have least and big business, magnates and chieftains to evade taxes. Enough that continue using poor people to speak against the payment of taxes. Recent approvals of tax reform, left satisfied no person who can boast of being smart and honest, demonstrations and reactions of those who reach to discern the stultification of the legislators were not immediate, many of them decided to send emails proposing various actions, emphasizing in all time endless recriminations and offenses all rightly so, but to tell the truth to these politiquillos not move them, because they have no principles and values, or its own initiative, the offenses slip them as they spread corruption and ineptitude, but what if it will be effective is suspending the payment of taxes and will see that they do not take 3 months, when they already have a better fiscal plan, because if they know that they must do, but they do not slogan of those who govern in anonymity and benefiting from extreme poverty to where we want to take.

The Reason

purposes on weekends and from 5: 01 p.m. (time that comes out of his regular work) until wee hours of the morning. Having said all this, I have to clarify that I have nothing against camaronear (I same have camaroneado enough in the past), but I don’t think he is honest with the customer to sell a service as a company when the reality is different, as healthy is to be clear and honest about our methodology. B. WE HAVE BEFORE US A CASE SERIOUS LABOR EXPLOITATION. If companies in web design in question are in fact companies, then the wages of employees who work there may not be adequate, (what seems to me an injustice towards them). This can directly affect the quality of the work they are doing, since a bad contributor paid usually does not work 100% of their potential. This is precisely the reason why many web design companies have dissolved in the past, lack of labor by problems of wages and you as customer will not want to keep your web project in the middle of a process of dissolution of one of these companies (I’ve even seen cases where projects are left adrift and without any explanation by the company).

C. YOUR PROJECT HAS BEEN TAKEN BY A STUDENT, AS AN INSTRUMENT OF EDUCATION SELF-TAUGHT AMATEUR OR SIMILAR. This actually has to do with A point and refers to the possibility that your project will be made by a (University) student, apprentice or similar that you are using your project to learn or practice acquired knowledge of web design. I should point out, there is nothing wrong if the project allows it and the client is willing that it is not a company that is hiring. Finally, always remember that: the cheap is usually expensive. 2. Do not have portfolio of projects projects portfolio is the best proof that a customer may have to judge the quality of work of a web design company.

Child Consumption

CHILD consumption what white takes the skirt the girl who goes to sea! Oh girl, no squid ink spot it you! Rafael Alberti. Exchange of a product by money the consumerist attitudes of the early years, between 6 and 10 years, unfolds according to advertising and the decisions of their parents. However, from that age, the environment of consumption are wide and are also influence by those who believe and have friends. At the same time increases the interest of children to manage money, non-existent in the first years of childhood. Clothing is one of the first territories in which the kids act independently on his election and pressuring parents when choosing brands. His great goal becomes to get always suspicious paternal Pocket what they want: this and that brand which also has her friend or friend. None of them seeks the quality of garments, just care them labels. Here is where the first children’s blackmail.

If the adults buy them clothes that they have not chosen or dislike, threaten parents with no wear. Learn more on the subject from Kevin Johnson. As for other purchases, the most common relate to domestic issues. The traditional messages where children begin to develop a consumer education through observation. The same thing happens, when they go with their parents to make food purchases, pressuring the elderly buy the foods of their choice, leaving lead by advertising, wrappers and fashions. From ten years, money, something that initially has no interest for children, becomes a necessity. Revenue sources are varied, from tips for doing some work at home, economic rewards for those approved, the money received for the birthday, the weekly pay that can oscillate between six and ten euros, amount that does not include the trickle of money which means the purchase of buns for lunch or cinemas for the father. The most normal thing is that children devote their regular income, when they are small, candy, stickers and toys of little value.

From ten years this money goes to burgers or pizzas, the favorite dishes of children. More substantial extraordinary income, devoted it to purchases more expensive, such as video games. In some families, extraordinary income of children are placed in a booklet of savings. For parents consumer desire of small relates objects that are on the market, so you detect a lack of imagination of his sons. In addition, they manifest the influence of advertising is total when it comes to eating. Their clothing, toys and other products are elected by small based on advertising. In short, for children consuming is exchanging a product for money and repeat endlessly, so hated phrase of: want that!.

In addition, and a very important issue; This allows an involvement of the company in its management, they are partakers of the facts, we work jointly proposing to take them to understand the basic principles of accounting and taxation as well as business management. The accounting can be boring but we take it otherwise always there are other ways to approach the same question.

The newspapers mentioned Jim Umpleby not as a source, but as a related topic. Without forgetting that we sometimes seek answers to our doubts complicating us life and wasting time when solutions are ahead of us, we simply forget open eyes. I remember a phrase I read in a book, that today has caught all its sense in my mind, if it can not be the first, must seek other ways to be. Dublino y asociados S.L., we have no claim to be the first but we are simply different, because the first are our customers. I am of course available to who have doubts or need any concrete reply.

In addition to its historical monuments, its delicious gastronomy, its incredible beaches, its excellent riads, its abundant culture and its hospitable people, Morocco also boasts an impressive and varied nature that will delight those visitors who are looking for scenery and incomparable views. Morocco is a country extremely varied, with more than 3700 kilometers of coastline, several mountain ranges, deserts with precious oasis and many other amazing natural wonders. The caves of Hercules Hercules caves or caves of Africa are the natural symbol of Tangier and a spectacular natural heritage that shows the shape of the African continent. According to legend, this cave, located about 14 kilometers to the West of Tangier, was the place chosen by Hercules to rest after finishing his twelve labours. The entrances to the caves overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and at high tide the water comes in spades. When the sea level rises, sprout huge waves and flooded the caves. Apparently, the caves have been used as homes for centuries and there are several quarries and corridors between them. According to popular belief, the caves were excavated and built by any ancient culture to be able to take refuge in its interior.

But, in fact, its existence and genesis remain a mystery. It is known, moreover, that the last known use of this cave was how brothel in first half of century XX. Another legend surrounding the caves of Hercules is communicating, through a mysterious and unexplored system of tunnels and galleries, with the caves of San Miguel in Gibraltar. However, the impressive view of the Strait of Gibraltar is not no legend, with incredible tones of deep blue of the sea and the sky creating a fascinating contrast. To get to the cave you can take a bus without number coming from Grand Socco, but departures are infrequent. Moreover, they can negotiate a taxi or travel in your own vehicle from the city.


The images of some Micros became backup copy. Baudrillard explains it very well with his theory of the simulation, which is nothing other than a world where references and referents have disappeared, something like a simulativa constant. Well, it is obvious that such a mechanism does not affect only the world that is narrated but also fictions that make, everything in a process of Transfiguration adulterated. Impossible so the emergence of a new discourse that would grow out of the shadow of power. Finally, after the representation was installed and we lost the ability to distinguish the territory on the map according to the successful expression of Baudrillard. Disguise leaves intact the principle of reality, but masked. Or in other words, a Hyperreality built us.

There was a rampant recreation of images where there was nothing to do. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from Starbucks. What has been called with a German word, Doppelganger, which is nothing other than the ghostly double of a person. It is true that we live the time of the image. This implies that the specific purposes are unnecessary, as well practiced, so that the simulation becomes the head of some powerful lost the new principle, one where is the same model that is shown, what is important, and where eager hope viewers are taught a game that have already been accustomed to playing that it ends up becoming dispersion and annulment of the political. In sum, a revelation of television channel and no more. The current Venezuelan regime has succeeded in creating an image of thought in which almost no longer be can think but from within the pensamiento-Estado centrality. That is why in his speech there are always elements of truth, a very minority, but which creates effects of truth.

From there his tenure despite their mistakes and their incompetence. We must oppose a new thought, a distinct symbolic organization, while the case discussed was the opposite: a constant repetition, sample online Doppelganger, in a nutshell, a simulacrum of representation that reinforced the image and the original in a symbiosis such that It could lead to thinking if the monster actually existed. In the absence of an original political strategy Government runs rampant with the staging of their chains or their Alo, President of spectacular solicitation now impregnated weekly expropriations. Display layout, the copy that was the disaster channel helped the maintenance of the catastrophe. The own image in reality conversion. If there is inconsistency or contradiction in the discourse of the dictator he is simply because there is no need to articulate speeches. His only interest is the development of a power strategy based on the desire to show, that we see doing rave masses previously committed and arreadas to the place of the show. Break it did not happen by way of the Doppelganger because the original order of the copied image was the change the scale between political system and the massive sphere. Play was, as we have said, become a perpetual instant purpose.

Michael Porter Professor

-You must avoid excessive identification between the ego and the company. The personal success of the Directors is linked to the results obtained. Howard Schultz understood the implications. The future of the company is too important for customers, employees and shareholders to convert it into a matter of personal ego. -Encourage employees to question their ideas is a sign of confidence. They will respond to change with respect and honesty. -What is important is to earn respect and not the affection of employees. Because the function of these is to honour its commitments so that the company generates results. -In decision-making must prepend clarity to precision.

If Yet the decision is wrong, change plans, to rectify and to explain why employees. In the meetings is good to foster discord so that an exchange of ideas to be generated. For its part, strategy guru Michael Porter Professor of business at the Harvard Business School since 1973, where he completed his Ph.d. in economics, bequeathed us administrative topics that should not be neglected, for example, that the search for productivity has led many companies to use a large number of management tools: total qualitybenchmarking, reengineering, or change management. According to Porter, there are companies that have used them and have obtained spectacular results. But many others feel frustrated given the impossibility of converting these improvements in sustainable profitability. And it is that, little by little, these management tools have supplanted the place that should deal with the strategy, need to be operationally effective ara create value, but not enough.

It is necessary to a strategic positioning that involves different activities to the competition or similar activities in different ways. He says in addition, which deem there to be different, not disperse in the development of the business and create a set of unique and interdependent activities. These are the three main ingredients of competitive strategy. In companies with a clear strategic position can be identified strategic concepts of higher level, which are implemented through activities that are interlinked. Insists Porter to point out, that if a company stands out from its competitors, you will get an increase in their benefits. Don’t neglect it. (Will continue) * head teacher, Faces postgraduate Area.
