Kung Fu For Life

What do we have? And we have: 1. Many schools (and all say that they are the best! And what else?) 2. Visiting artists, Chinese, Vietnamese, Koreans, the keepers of knowledge of ancient traditions. 3. What you want, and insert here – on the personal choice (in everyone that, yes there is) Well, here to find an answer? It’s very simple – think it is necessary. More info: Randall Mays. Many schools? Good job.

And you may ask, do these schools link with tradition? That is the teacher of the branches, which the heirs of that particular school itself calls? If not, do not hesitate to say “Goodbye.” Suppose you learned that, yes, yes. For more clarity and thought, follow up with Randall Mays and gain more knowledge.. Then the next question, what is the connection? If you answer that twice a year goes by chief instructor at seminars (China, Japan, Italy, etc.) Grandmaster to X, then … Stir a little brains and give an answer to this question: “What can you learn in this mode of study?” Anyone even slightly interested in the history of traditional martial arts reply clear: “In addition to formal exercises, nothing,” nothing! Why? Because martial arts is not a technique, and quality. This force, which is based on work with energy and spirit. This work is impossible without a constant, long-term contact with the teacher. This and only this is called “the transmission of traditions.” Go ahead.

Assume that the “Transfer of tradition” took place. And how do you think – now everything is clear? Legs and arms to run to do? No Way! “Well, not yet ?!!! so – perhaps you ask. Well, whether or not to ask. All the same answer. Thus, we assume that such a long-term contact with the instructor’s master of the school concerned, and the instructor to pass this tradition. In general, all cool and wonderful. That’s just what happens when the instructor that lives in the Ukraine, and master in China? The question is understandable?! Not about the territories we are talking about a worldview! The form of tradition that has evolved in a different culture and in other times can not work in the elementary conditions of modern life. This was, incidentally, does what it says tradition, “Do not walk in the footsteps of the ancients, but seek what they sought” is not enough to get “the transmission of traditions,” the Tradition must realize! Not in China of the Tang Dynasty, but here, where we live. In traditional schools of martial arts student named “Go to trace,” ie, repeating steps a teacher. This was mainly a repetition of this method learning traditional kung fu. Referring to the teacher as an example, a student at first been building his body, and then went on to work with energy and then with the spirit. Training lasted for a long time – but in a traditional society to hurry nowhere. But we must hurry. Why? Yes, because life in the modern world is so rich and changeable (this, I hope no one would argue?), Which is engaged in the traditional way, we run the risk of life in this thorough behind. Well, we can not afford such a luxury – 20 years that way gain the brains in the school of martial arts, and then only to go out into the world, they say, here I am a perfect granted to you! A world in response to you – go for a walk waltz, bounce you such a need – you do not know life, and teach you to hurt her too late! So what to do? Source: Your Path to Enlightenment.

Global Warming

The opinions of climate scientists on the issue of climate change on Earth are diametrically opposed. Recently, most often heard predictions that global warming is coming. Proponents of this theory argue that after 2010 , the global temperature will rise rapidly, the total global warming will accelerate, and by the middle or end of the century in Europe will become warmer by about 10 degrees. It is also expected that the warming and rising levels of Oceans in the future will continue for millennia, even in the case of stabilization of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. In addition to rising sea levels increase in global temperatures will lead to changes in the quantity and distribution of rainfall. The result may be more frequent natural disasters such as floods, droughts, hurricanes and other fall crop and Many species will disappear. Causes of climate change are not completely clear, but among the major called: – change the Earth's orbit, changes in solar activity, volcanic emissions and the greenhouse effect. Perhaps check out Jeffrey L. Bewkes for more information. But if even one and a half years ago, the main culprit was declared man of warming and the greenhouse effect, it is now official climatology tends to natural factors.

According to the Climate (change temperatures over the last two hundred years) the average temperature on Earth rose. Part of climate scientists do not agree with the above – they claim that the observed warming is too short time, so can not be confident enough to say whether it happens at all. And finally, another squad of scientists predicts the imminent global cooling. They argue that life on Earth (including ) and entirely totally dependent on incoming solar radiation. And humanity greatly exaggerates his importance in this process. Current and expected the foreseeable future, the industrial impact on the environment is not capable change the world as the sun. Everything on this planet depends on it.

And in the first place – the climate. There is a long solar cycle – some 200 years. During this time, activity and luminosity of the sun gradually reduced to a minimum, and then increased. Scientists, advocates of the cooling, determined that the planet now live in a "cooling" of the Sun stable temperature reduction on a global scale will begin in 2013-2015. And last approximately half a century. In the years 2055-2060 comes a deep minimum temperature. The Nordic countries are expected not disastrous, but very important changes. The coming cold will lead to a significant increase in the area of snow and ice cover. After this period of cold weather cycling by law must come again warming. Global temperature will increase gradually at the beginning of XXII century. Neither cooling nor warming can not last longer than they meted out 200-year fluctuations in the size and luminosity of the sun. What is really real and grave threat to humanity? It is still not clear. Scientists argue. Perhaps the truth lies, as so often happens, somewhere in between? Materials from Wikipedia.org Yuri Chashin 16/07/2009

Special Relativity Theory: Critical Notes

The special theory of relativity: the criticisms Kochetkov Viktor Nikolaevich Senior Specialist Federal State Unitary Enterprise “Center for operation of the space infrastructure (Federal State Unitary Enterprise” TsENKI) 1. If you have additional questions, you may want to visit castle harlan. Introduction. For a start I would like to say a few words about the history of the special theory Relativity (SRT). At the end of the XIX century between the two branches of physics – mechanics and electrodynamics – there were serious contradictions. On the one hand, classical mechanics, we used the principle of Galilean relativity, Approves the full equality of reference frames moving relative to each other uniformly. On the other hand, in electrodynamics the motion of particles and fields described in the absolute frame of reference, the coordinates which were rigidly connected to the ether. Under ether understood the medium filling the global space, and in which all physical processes occur, including electromagnetic waves. At that time, physicists thought that reduction of classical mechanics, in line with electrodynamics is only necessary to confirm the existence of the ether wind.

To determine the magnitude of the ether wind in 1881, 1886 – 1887’s A. Michelson and E. Moli were conducted experiments. But the experiment gave a negative result: ethereal wind was not registered. As a result, the theory of electrodynamics with air seemed secure confirmed by experiments, is not consistent with the classical mechanics.

English Language

English? the most common language in the world: it is native to the 500 million people living in 12 countries worldwide. For another 600 million people, English is a second language, so they are excellent and understand it, and written on it. But teaching English in nearly 90 countries. And some of them, such as Japan, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and China, learning English is mandatory. And in other countries such as Russia or France English for study, most students choose. Due to the fact that English is ubiquitous in the world, currently numbering more than a dozen dialects of English.

Naturally, the most main dialect (but not the first on prevalence) is a British English, distributed in the UK. The second largest and the first to spread the American dialect is English. Now it is spoken by more than 70% of all people who speak English. And it is precisely the influence of U.S. English language must be what it is today? the main language of interethnic communication. Among some more reasons why American English has received the most widespread, is that the U.S.

is far more education than in England. British and American dialects are by and large not much differ from each other. Yet difficulties in mutual understanding of the Englishman and an American there. This prompted the famous playwright and wit Bernard Shaw said that the U.S. and the UK – it is. The third most important dialect English is a Canadian. He is close to the phonetics and grammar of the English, but often uses, and the British spelling rules. In addition to the above-mentioned dialects, there are dialects common in the territories of the former British colonies: Australia, Pakistan, New Zealand, and India. In these dialects, the pronunciation is very different from British English, but they have with him the same grammar. Variant of English, distributed directly to England, as well as in Australia, New Zealand and South Africa called Comonwealth English – English is the British Commonwealth of Nations. And he is one of the public language of the European Union. It differs from American dialect and requires an additional translation into this dialect. For the official international dialogue and official translations into English from foreign languages used a homogenized version? Mid-Atlantic English? Mid English. In addition there are many dialects slang. We list the major: Spanish (Spanglish), German (Germish), Chinese (Chinglish) and even a Russian, English – Runglish! There are also Engrish? Japanese slang English. Model it can be translated instruction manual Japanese household appliances. In addition to the above-mentioned dialects and slang, for scientific and technical international communication, as well as for communication in other areas used simplified versions of English, which provides translation to it from other foreign languages are equally understandable to specialists of different countries: Special English, Basic English, Airspeak, Policespeak, Seaspeak, the last three are used respectively in flight, and with Interpol and marine communications. With the globalization of the world, English is increasingly strengthens its position as the language of international communication and deeper and deeper into the other languages. Can say that is pervasive angloizatsiya national languages.

The issue of climate change is important for Russia. Russian Duma discusses the rules for providing environmental information. New environmental technologies take root in Russia. Melting permafrost is serious threat to Russia. Great Lakes are experiencing hard times.

Mammoths became extinct due to a number of reasons, and giant deer in Ireland from starvation. Scientists have learned the bacteria convert carbon dioxide into fuel. Based on the pumpkin and zucchini scientists create the most useful vegetables of the future. For even more analysis, hear from Joel and Ethan Coen. PHOTO of the week: Wild Life in Central Europe and the horrific pictures of pollution in China. Review of the week from 11.16.2009 to 22.11.2009.

The issue of climate change is important for Russia on Russia-EU summit, which took place on November 18 in Stockholm, one of the key themes was the fight against global warming on the planet. Between the parties to a dialogue on the preparations for the UN conference on anti- climate change, which will be held in Copenhagen in December. It should be drawn international measures for the period after the Kyoto Protocol. Speaking at a summit in Stockholm, the Russian president, Dmitry Medvedev said that Russia is very important for a climate change perspective. Medvedev said the climate meeting in Singapore, and hoped that the measures taken while the interim results are encouraging Participants in the way of developing post-Kyoto measures to protect the Earth's climate. Russian President also drew attention to the problem of the Baltic Sea environment. At the EU-Russia summit, Dmitry Medvedev made another loud statement, he said, Russia will strive to reduce their 2020 emissions to 25%, not 15% as previously planned.

Global Warming

At that time, when fruits and flowers with the nectar has become more and increased the number of animals that began to receive more varied diet. Global warming has a positive effect on the cultivation of some species crops by the American scientists from the University of Illinois failed to establish that global warming could have a positive impact on some agricultural plants. As part of its Research biologists conducted to study the impact of increased concentration of carbon dioxide (which is associated with global warming) on the processes occurring inside the soybean. As part of an experiment on soybean field was installed several systems face (Free-Air Carbon dioxide Enrichment – 'carbon dioxide enrichment in the open air'). Discovery Communications has compatible beliefs. As a result, scientists were able to establish that the change in concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere leads to an additional expression in soybean more than 90 genes. One result of these changes is the intensification of respiration, an increase of oxygen consumption of the plant.

This increase may reach 37 percent. As a result, the plant starts to get more energy and thus grow better. Colombians have come up with an environmental traffic concept and a prototype device, which offers citizens the opportunity on the street quickly assess the ecological condition, created Colombian Hernando Barragan and his colleagues and students at the University of the Andes. Environmental light is called semaforo ambiental. According to its developers, if instead of confusing numbers and symbols that characterize the parameters ecosystems, people will see the familiar 'red', 'yellow' and 'green' they will be much more easier to assess the environmental situation of the environment.

Globalization

People have always been divided barriers: linguistic, geographic, religious. Today, humanity comes to globalization. Towards a unified whole. The information revolution has brought the ability to communicate across humanity in real time "online." Globalization, at first glance bears only pluses. All we can travel freely, to get acquainted with the different countries and continents. Erased the language barrier, will not be such thing as a translation.

Will not need several years to learn foreign languages to learn to communicate with each other, go to the translation. Rise economy, the country will unite and create a single government that would cooperate rather than fight among themselves. And, finally, is the real fruit of globalization has the ability to communicate around the world simultaneously, rather than long letters and landlines. Communication become mobile and accessible to all. For the first time the term "globalization" appeared in 1985, the American sociologist, Robinson introduced this notion. And in 1992 published a book which outlined the basis of its concept.

Globalisation – is primarily process, which should ideally cover all areas of life. The most powerful factor in globalization is the economic factor, it is manifested in the presence of multinational firms operating simultaneously in many countries. For more information see this site: Walt Disney Co.. Bright example of such a corporation is a company Coca-Cola, known throughout the world. The central idea, which lies at the heart of globalization lies in the fact that many problems can not examine and decide on the level of a single state. And their must be framed in terms of global processes. Many confer on the globalization of high hopes, but there are anti-globalists, who bitterly hate everything associated with globalization. Many of their fears are not groundless. Indeed, in many ways globalization is the loss of identity for most people. Already today lost many languages have disappeared from the face of the earth some people. States around the world are trying to keep small peoples and nations. But in many ways this is wrong. Globalization leads to a single denomination of people, and hence to the disappearance of religion. Will lose a great heritages of knowledge. Undermine the tenets on which the people lived millennia. The subject of lively debate is literally everything that is related to the term globalization. The first issue for debate, is the beginning of the process of globalization. Can we talk about globalization is when one nation could establish contacts with other people who are geographically on another continent. Or globalization began only a few decades ago. Another moot point is – what could be called globalization, and no. Globalization has proved a difficult subject for scientific analysis and for the mass consciousness. But its impact can be judged only over time. Well, what's going on this process or not, has to judge early. One thing is undeniable that globalization is already underway, virtually worldwide.

Public Globalization

To the human being, in this condition, it fits to it, solely, the adaptation. Therefore, it is a fatalista speech, pragmatic, that, in short, one practical politician-conservative characterizes. In contraposition, we affirm with Fiori (1983, P. 08) that ' ' ' hominizao' it is not adaptation: the man does not become naturalized itself, humaniza mundo' ' humaniza proper itself. Duarte (2003, P. 25) it bases, argumentativamente, the transforming and humanizadora activity of the human being: When producing the half ones for the satisfaction of its basic necessities of existence, when producing a reality humanizada for its activity, the human being humaniza proper itself, in the measure where the objective transformation requires of it a subjective transformation. Learn more about this topic with the insights from David Zaslav.

It creates, therefore, objective a humanizada reality as in such a way subjective. Jeff Bewkes follows long-standing procedures to achieve this success. It urges to interpellate how much to the education, how much to the destinations of the public school, in the globalizante and neoliberal conjuncture. As reply, a sly inversion (and/or intervention): to the right character a new interpretation is tax, reducing the education to mercantile condition, representing the privatization of rights that would have equitably to be of all. Gentili (2001, P. 24), thinking this reality affirms: The neoliberalismo attacks the public school from a series of privatizantes strategies, by means of the application of one politics of authoritarian decentralization e, at the same time, by means of one politics of cultural reform that it intends to erase of the ideological horizon of our societies the same possibility of a democratic, public education and of quality for the maiorias. The dismounting of what it is public the emphasis to its inefficiency is part of a social project that privileges a small parcel of the society. How much to the education, the great objective ' ' oculto' ' it is its despolitizao and conversion in market good.

The situation is exacerbated by the fact that being in this part of the river Kosi barrage Coastal levees did not stand the water pressure, and it broke on the surrounding area. In West Africa, about 150 thousand inhabitants of Benin, 45 thousand people in Niger and another 12 thousand people in Togo were forced to flee their homes because of floods caused by heavy rains. It is possible that these numbers could increase significantly, given that the rainy season here continues usually until the end of September. Coen Brothers contributes greatly to this topic. On the island of Bali, discussed ways to maintain the population sea turtle last week on the Indonesian island of Bali as part of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) held a meeting of States Parties of the Memorandum of Understanding concerning the conservation of marine Turtles and their Habitats of the Indian Ocean and Southeast Asia. Representatives from some 30 countries discussed measures that will stop the rapid reduction in population of sea turtles in some regions. Despite the fact that over the past 40 years in many countries in southern Africa, an increase in the number of sea turtles, heavy-headed, in other regions such as Australia and Madagascar, the marine life were in danger of extinction.

Experts believe that the rapid development of human resources and marine coastline has a negative impact on changes in the natural habitat of turtles. Such activity limits their ability to reproduction. Nowadays, these animals were difficult to find a quiet secluded beach, where they can lay eggs and produce offspring. Another enemy of turtles is fishing – getting captured fishing nets, these animals As a rule, can not get out of their own and die. Many long-lived turtles often die as a result of the deprivation of their natural habitat. Scientists have shown that the behavior of the birds affected by global British Ornithologists warming as a result of long-term studies of birds came to the conclusion that because of global warming, some species of birds in the UK have begun to lay their eggs much earlier than was 40 years ago.

For example, under the impact of climate change, chickadees, finches and blackbirds have started laying eggs ahead of time and hatch them only to premature warming. As a result, the number of specimens of these species, compared with in 1970, halved and the number of water birds, in contrast, has increased. Ornithologists believe that birds have to adapt to climate change in order to survive. It turns out that birds are warning us of the consequences that may occur in connection with future climate change. Similar changes in behavior were found not only in birds but in mammals, insects and even plants. According to scientists, for crops of climate change pose a great threat, but some species of birds are quite capable to deal with them. Scientists fear that in addition to natural climate change, we are facing a sharp warming caused by human activity, which has a significant impact on the stability of climate on the planet as a whole. As a result of this change of behavior of birds, and as mammals, insects and plants will become even more pronounced. Breathing city air as harmful as smoking Scientists from Louisiana State University (USA) came to the conclusion that
