Truths finally told (Answer to Hot Topic: Obama's Back to School Speech)

I've just read Obama's speech, and I'm amazed. I had constantly heard about (at least in Mexico) cry of the people for more efforts from part of the government into education - it's not enough money, its not good enough education quality, not enough professors... But no one speaks about those students (that, admittedly, he treats them very kindly in his speach) that go to school just by inercia, by obligation, to make us loose resources.It bothers, me, you know? To have people in my classrooms…See More

Agenda (Answer to Hot Topic: Back to School Time)

My dad always used to cite the chinesse proverb "the palest ink is better than the sharpest memory.” And heeding his advice has been very good for me, for sometimes with so many things going on at school, at work and at life I can´t keep track of were I left my mind, much less of what I have to do. So the solution is simple: I use agendas.I've never tried anything fancy like GPA´s, because, as I mention, I haven´t lost my head just because it´s attached to my neck; and loosing something…See More

This 4th of July... (Answer to HOT TOPIC: HOW ARE YOU GOING TO CELEBRATE THE 4TH OF JULIO?)

This 4th of July, besides being the independence day in US, is also ELECTIONS DAY in MEXICO. It is not a colorful and darling date as having a lot of fireworks, in Mexico it's a date for which lots of money have been spent in campaigns and in which the dreams of a few will be broken or made true (the politicians) and of other will be keep on being unanswered (the people).You may ask: Why so negative, Silvana? Well. A few weeks back, there was this tragedy in my state, which is also having…See More

Silvana commented on Silvana's blog post "The death of a Star" (Answer to Hot Topic: How Has the News about Michael Jackson's Death Impacted You?)
"AND! Important. Why is Michael Jackson's death more important and causing more mass revolution than the tragedy in my city? (burning of ABC childcare, 48 infants dead)."

"The death of a Star" (Answer to Hot Topic: How Has the News about Michael Jackson's Death Impacted You?)

Posted on June 29, 2009 at 7:49pm 1 Comment

Last week, I was 4 hours away from civilization, on top of the Large Binocular Telescope, the biggest optical telescope on earth so far. I was learning about real stars and their lives, seeing constellations like the eagle nebula were they are forming; the beautiful blue and red binary stars of Albireo, and taking spectography picture of dead stars like the Dumbell planetary Nebula.



Planetary Nebulas are, perhaps, some of the most beaituful night sky objects you can observe. You can… Continue

Hidden Machismo (Answer to Hot Topic: Do You Think Machismo is a Problem in Our Culture?)

Posted on June 27, 2009 at 9:00pm 0 Comments

Do you think machismo is a problem in our culture?



I will answer YES, but I have to explain, for its a Yes on many levels and a No in some others.



When I was growing up, I remember (male) friends discussing how they weren't machos anymore, how society had changed, evolved. That machismo was a thing of the past. I wanted to agree, because I believed (and still) that I deserved same rights as men, same opportunities, but later on I discovered that there are creeks were… Continue
