British Government to Recruit Teens as Next Generation of Spies

In the 50 years since the first James Bond movie created a lasting impression of a British secret agent, a completely different character is about to emerge. Britain’s intelligence agencies are to recruit their next generation of cyber spies by harnessing the talents of the “Xbox generation”.

In an expansion of a pilot program, Foreign Secretary William Hague announced Thursday that up to 100 18-year-olds will be given the chance to train for a career in Britain’s secret services. The move to recruit school-leavers marks a break with the past, when agencies mainly drew their staff from among university graduates.

“Young people are the key to our country’s future success, just as they were during the War”, Hague said. “Today we are not at war, but I see evidence every day of deliberate, organized attacks against intellectual property and government networks in the United Kingdom.”

The new recruitment program, called the Single Intelligence Account apprenticeship scheme will enable students with suitable qualifications in science, technology or engineering, to spend two years learning about communications, security and engineering through formal education, technical training and work placements.

I didn’t have a problem with Khan Academy site until very recently. For me, the problem is the way Khan Academy is being promoted. The way the media sees it as “revolutionizing education”. The way people with power and money view education as simply “sit-and-get”. If your philosophy of education is “sit-and-get”, i.e., teaching is telling and learning is listening, then Khan Academy is way more efficient than classroom lecturing. Khan Academy does it better. But TRUE progressive educators, TRUE education visionaries and revolutionaries don’t want to do these things better. We want to DO BETTER THINGS.

The record industry
The record industry is undoubtedly in crisis, with labels laying off employees in continuation. This is because CD sales are plummeting as youngsters prefer to download their music from the Internet, usually free of charge.
And yet it´s not all gloom and doom. Some labels are in fact thriving. Putumayo World Music, for example, is growing, thanks to its catalogue of ethnic compilation albums, featuring work by largely unknown artists from around the planet.
Putumayo, which takes its name from a valley in Colombia, was founded in New York in 1993. It began life as an alternative clothing company, but soon decided to concentrate on music. Indeed its growth appears to have coincided with that of world music as a genre.

The six–year molars
The six–year molars are the permanent teeth. They are the "keystone" of the dental arch. They are also extremely susceptible to decay.
Parents have to understand that these teeth are very important. Over 25% of 6 to 7 year old children have beginning cavities in one of the molars.
The early loss of one of these molars causes serious problems in childhood and adult life. It is never easy for parents to make kids take care of their teeth. Even so, parents have to insist and never give up.
O texto aborda uma temática inerente ao processo de desenvolvimento do ser humano, a dentição.

El lago Atitlán está situado en el centro de América, en Guatemala. Su belleza es extraordinaria y tiene un gran interés social. En sus márgenes conviven tres culturas: la indígena, la española y la mestiza. Presididos por tres majestuosos volcanes (el Atitlán, el Tolimán y el San Pedro), trece pueblos bordean el lago. Los habitantes del lago son en su mayoría indígenas, aunque crece el porcentaje de ladinos (mestizos). Un buen número de extranjeros – misioneros o investigadores – comparte en los pueblitos la forma de vida de los nativos. A partir de los años setenta, numerosas colonias de hippies se asientan en Atitlán. Jóvenes de todo el mundo, atraídos por el paisaje, el clima semitropical y la sencillez de la vida de los indios, acampan cerca del lago. Además, muchos comerciantes guatemaltecos y extranjeros se han instalado en el pueblo de Panajachel para establecer diversos negocios hoteleros, deportivos y artesanales. A cada día el lago Atitlán atrae a sus costas a más turistas y científicos. Unos llegan buscando sossiego ante el espejismo del lago; otros van a mezclarse con los orgullosos y apacibles indígenas en iglesias y mercados; muchos atraviesan el lago para recorrer los diferentes pueblos y para recrearse en la variada indumentaria de sus habitantes; otros estudian las diferentes lenguas y dialectos que se hablan en la zona y muchos investigan con pasión la rica fauna del lago y de las tierras volcánicas. Realmente, es impresionante la convivencia de tantas etnías y culturas. En el corazón de América hay un lago y unos volcanes que son símbolo y reflejo de lo que es Hispanoamérica: un mosaico de culturas y un ejemplo de convivencia.

After prison blaze kills hundreds in Honduras,
UN warns on overcrowding
15 February 2012
A United Nations human rights official today called on
Latin American countries to tackle the problem of prison
overcrowding in the wake of an overnight fire at a jail in
Honduras that killed hundreds of inmates. More than
300 prisoners are reported to have died in the blaze at
the prison, located north of the capital, Tegucigalpa, with
dozens of others still missing and presumed dead. Antonio
Maldonado, human rights adviser for the UN system in
Honduras, told UN Radio today that overcrowding may
have contributed to the death toll. “But we have to wait until
a thorough investigation is conducted so we can reach a
precise cause,” he said. “But of course there is a problem of
overcrowding in the prison system, not only in this country,
but also in many other prisons in Latin America.”

Our bodies produce a small steady amount of natural
morphine, a new study suggests. Traces of the chemical
are often found in mouse and human urine, leading
scientists to wonder whether the drug is being made
naturally or being delivered by something the subjects
consumed. The new research shows that mice produce
the “incredible painkiller” — and that humans and other
mammals possess the same chemical road map for
making it, said study co-author Meinhart Zenk, who studies
plant-based pharmaceuticals at the Donald Danforth Plant
Science Center in St. Louis, Missouri.
