BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. Have you ever imagined the world would change as fast as it is changing now? Do you think it is due to the improvement of the technology? Or is it simply as we have changed our mind? Internet and phones have changed our relationships and the velocity which we can access to such great amounts of information, usually free.

    Today, technology is used to share the world's events and culture. One such instance could be a few days ago when the Whatsapp's app fell down, everybody began to share post saying what's the matter with Whatsapp? And all the apps, as Instagram, twitter, facebook... were full of this posts. Moreover, social revolution is a way to complain about something we don't agree. Another example is when Netflix, where you can find a lot of films paying a fee every month, increased its value, a lot of consumers complaint about it on Facebook, Twitter.. so it lost a lot of consumers and not only that but also its value decreased.

    Another fact is that nowadays, business is being affected by this revolution. More and more companies are joining on the Internet. They are looking for the best for the client, so they join in with social networks to give the consumer what they ask for and to be kept up with “what is most demanded”. So, companies which don't join in this revolution, in less than 5 years, it is claimed that they don't be valuable.

    All in all, I agree with the companies which look for the best for their clients by using the social networks. On the contrary, as I see, they often take advantage of the social networks. I want to mean, a method of marketing on the internet is that they keep an eye on what you find, for instance, if you search a pair of trainers and they realised it, they usually increased the price of the product. That is a way to make sure they won't lose any gain if you really need the product.

  2. The noun "revolution" comes from the verb revolutionize. Other word which has the same formation is "stabilize". Revolutionize means cause an stade of revolution.

    Nowadays, we are in a continuous revolution. With the incorporation of internet in our life, we have changed a lot. We don't comunicate with each others of the same way, we don't think the same things than a few years ago and we are always depending on internet.

    In Cuba, internet has changed a lot the society. In Cuba, not all people could have internet because it was so expensive and the government didn't allow its use. Now, the presence of internet in Cuba is more normal. The goverment has set up some places where there is wi-fi such as the wi-fi park in Matanzas. This incorporation has changed the Mexican society, American culture is influencing a lot this culture and the way on what they think.

    Moreover, there are many companies that are very keen on social networks. Each time, there are more companies that have a site web for their customers. In these site webs the customers can search for information, write to the company and in ocasions, they can show their curriculum vitae for ask for a job. However, there are many companies that don't agree with the new form of information and they don't make advertise of them on internet.

    In conclusion, internet is changing the way on what we communicate and we see the world. I agree with this new companies which have a site web for information or whatever. I think internet is very useful, however we can't miss the essence of our tradition.

  4. The revolution is something important that change the world when this go bad, in the history have a lot revolutions for example the revolution francaise when the workers revolutionized by a better quality of life. When the situation is bad the better of can doing is revolution for to be better your situations.

    I think that when a group of persons they have all the power and they can doing with the world whatever they want, the persons need doing a revolution for everything to return to normal. But at the moment although the government is laughing of the town, this one does not rise because many people of Spain have washed the head with the television, and with the fear that they have to rise against the government

    In my opinion the revolutions are good because is a good way the avoid the abuse for part of the government and if it had not been for the old revolutions, the workers would still have a difficult working conditions, where the state could do with them whatever. But on the other hand I see something bad in the revolutions, because sometimes when a revolution ends someone is placed in power that only looks for their interests, I think that there should be a better politically organized council, because the one that is right now does not Convince me nothing
