Nanotecnología

Nuestra profesora de Lengua, Carol, nos pidió que reescribiéramos nuestro resumen sobre la nanotecnología. Este es el mio:

   La nanotecnología es un campo de las ciencias aplicadas dedicado al control y manipulación de la materia a una escala menor que un micrómetro, es decir, a nivel de átomos y moléculas. Nano es un prefijo griego que indica una medida (10-9 = 0,000 000 001), no un objeto; de manera que la nanotecnología se caracteriza por ser un campo esencialmente multidisciplinar. La nanotecnología comprende el estudio, diseño, creación, síntesis, manipulación y aplicación de materiales, aparatos y sistemas funcionales a través del control de la materia a nanoescala, y la explotación de fenómenos y propiedades de la materia a nanoescala. Cuando se manipula la materia a escala tan minúscula, presenta fenómenos y propiedades totalmente nuevas. Por lo tanto, los científicos utilizan la nanotecnología para crear materiales, aparatos y sistemas novedosos y poco costosos con propiedades únicas.

El ganador del premio Nobel de Física de 1965, Richard Feynmann, fue el primero en hacer referencia a las posibilidades de la nanociencia y la nanotecnología en el célebre discurso que dio en el Caltech (Instituto Tecnológico de California) el 29 de diciembre de 1959, titulado En el fondo hay espacio de sobra (There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom).

Horses

With our teacher of literature, Pato, we are seeing the poem horses which she told us to give our interpretation of the poem. This is mine:

This poem is about a man who one day, had a flashback, from when he was a child, and he first saw a horse. The voice describes the animal in a way he never used for the horse. He then is scared, like he hadn’t seen them before. He is also impresed, and describes the horse fisically and their feelings too. The man looks at the horse as a strange huge beast now and finnaly the horses go away with the memories with them.

Essay-League of Nations

In this essay I’m going to talk about how far was The League of Nations in the 1920’s and the disputes of the borders in that moment.

In one hand there were many problems for the borders after the WW1 had finished. Ones had succeded, like Upper Silesia in 1921, the Aaland Islands in 1921, Corfu in 1923 and Bulgaria in 1925. The others had failed and those were Vilna in 1920 and the Geneva Protocol in 1924; Vilna’s conflict was that Poland and Lithuania were two new states created by the post-war treaties. The conflict began because its population was largely Polish and in the end the Poles kept Vilna; The Geneva Protocol said that if two members were in dispute they would have to ask The League to sort out the disagreement and they would have to accept the council’s decision but the new conservative Government refused to sign the Protocol and this in fact weakened it.

On the other hand Upper Silesia that was an industrial region between Germany and Poland, but the League divided the region along this line and built it in many safeguards to prevent future disputes. Sweden and Finland wanted control of the Aaland Islands, which were in the midway between the two countries. Both countries were threatening to fight for them, so they appealed to the League. The League said that the Islands should go to Finland. Sweden accepted the League’s ruling and war was avoided. The Corfu conflict was started because of the fact that Tellini (Italian General) and his team were ambushed and killed, so on 31 August Mussolini (italian leader) bombarded and occupied the Greek Island of Corfu, then Greece appealed to the League for help.The League condemned Mussolini’s actions and suggested that Greece pay compensation, but that the money be held by the League. The money will be paid to Italy if and when, Tellini’s killers were found.

The final conflict that had succeded was the one in Bulgaria. In October 1925, Greek troops invaded Bulgaria after an incident on the border in which some Greek soldiers were killed, after that Bulgaria appealed for help. The League condemned the Greek action and ordered Greece to pull out and paid compensation to Bulgaria. the Greeks obeyed but although they complain that there seemed to be one rule for the large states (Italy) and another for the smaller ones (such as themselves). All this conflicts, in reality, succeed because after the end of the First World War the empires of Germany, Russia, Turky and Austria-Hungary were dissolved. then new countries and limits were created, making news conflicts.

To sum up, the new dicision of Central and Eastern Europe make it more easy to resolve conflicts between the new countries, the League of Nations have to attend to this conflict, to prevent new wars. The results weren’t so good but it made that there wasn’t any war.
