!Mira que luna! Look at that moon! Resources for learning English
Fernando Olivera: El rapto.- TEXT FROM THE NOVEL The goldfinch by Donna Tartt (...) One night we were in San Antonio, and I was having a bit of a melt-down, wanting my own room, you know, my dog, my own bed, and Daddy lifted me up on the fairgrounds and told me to look at the moon. When "you feel homesick", he said, just look up. Because the moon is the same wherever you go". So after he died, and I had to go to Aunt Bess -I mean, even now, in the city, when I see a full moon, it's like he's telling me not to look back or feel sad about things, that home is wherever I am. She kissed me on the nose. Or where you are, puppy. The center of my earth is you". The goldfinch Donna Tartt 4441 English edition

Myths about bilingualism. MITOS SOBRE EL BILINGÜISMO.


Myths about bilingualism

François Grosjean
University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland 

A number of myths about bilingualism are discussed in my new book,Bilingual: Life and Reality (Harvard University Press, 2010). They are summarized here.

Bilingual Benefits Reach Beyond Communication.


Bilingual Benefits Reach Beyond Communication

Download the entire article here:

Bilinguals perform better than monolinguals on blocking out distractions and multitasking.

Speaking two languages can be handy when traveling abroad, applying for jobs, and working with international colleagues, but how does bilingualism influence the way we think? In the current issue of Psychological Science in the Public Interest, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, Ellen Bialystok (York University), Fergus I.M. Craik (Rotman Research Institute), David W. Green (University College London), and Tamar H. Gollan (University of California, San Diego) review the latest research on bilingualism and ways in which knowing two languages can change brain function, even affecting brain areas not directly involved in communication.

Children learning two languages from birth achieve the same basic milestones (e.g., their first word) as monolinguals do, but they may use different strategies for language acquisition. Although bilinguals tend to have smaller vocabularies in each language than do children who know one language, bilinguals may have an advantage when it comes to certain nonverbal cognitive tasks. Bilinguals tend to perform better than monolinguals on exercises that require blocking out distractions and switching between two or more different tasks. The authors note that "when a bilingual speaks two languages regularly, speaking in just one of these languages requires use of the control network to limit interference from the other language and to ensure the continued dominance of the intended language." The bilingual advantage in attention and cognitive control may have important, long-term benefits. Preliminary evidence even suggests that their increased use of these systems may protect bilinguals against Alzheimer's.
The differences between monolinguals and bilinguals have important clinical implications. For example, vocabulary tests are commonly used in psychologists' offices and bilinguals' scores may not accurately reflect their language ability. According to the authors, "Bilinguals who score below average may be inaccurately diagnosed with impairment when none is present, or could be diagnosed as 'normal for a bilingual' even though impairment is in fact present and treatment is needed." Clinicians need to be aware of the potential to misinterpret bilinguals' test scores. Developing tests that specifically target bilingual populations may result in better outcomes for these patients.

Lyrics: Opus 17 ( Don't You Worry 'bout Me )

I can see
There ain't no room for me
You're only holdin' up your heart in sympathy
If there's another man
Then girl I understand
Go on and take his hand
And don't you worry 'bout me
I'll be blue
And I'll be cryin' too
But girl you know I only want what's best for you
What good is all my pride
If our true love has died
Go on and be his bride
And don't you worry 'bout me

I'll be strong
I'll try to carry on
Although you know it won't be easy when your gone
I'll always think of you
The tender love we knew
But somehow I'll get through
So don't you worry 'bout me
Ooo-oo
Baby
Sweetie pie
Before you say goodbye
Remember if he ever leaves you high and dry
Don't cry alone in pain
Don't ever feel ashamed
If you want me again
Just don't you worry 'bout me
I love you
No matter what you do
I'll spend my whole life waitin' if you want me too
And if this is goodbye
You know I'd rather die
Than let you see me cry
'Cause then you'd worry 'bout me

I'll be strong
I'll try to carry on
Although you know it won't be easy when your gone
I'll always think of you
The tender love we knew
But somehow I'll get through
So don't you worry 'bout me
I'll be strong
I'll try to carry on
Although you know it won't be easy when your gone
I'll always think of you
The tender love we knew
But somehow I'll get through 
So don't you worry 'bout me

Urania, la musa del cielo. EXPOSICIÓN ¡MIRA QUE LUNA! LOOK AT THAT MOON! EXHIBITION.



1. Urania, la musa del cielo
Son mis harmonias tales
En la alteza de mi metro,
Que hasta con ellas penetro
Las esferas celestiales:

Sus movimientos velozes
Todo mi estudio suspenden;
Y aunque nunca paran penden
Del organo de mis vozes



Francisco de Quevedo y Villegas (1580-1645), Las Nueve Musas Castellanas


Urania viene representada por una joven mujer de apariencia tranquila, vestida con una túnica como las usadas por los actores de la Grecia clásica. En la tradición greco-latina Urania tiene su cabeza rodeada de estrellas, un globo celeste en una mano y un bastón en la otra, sin embargo, con el paso del tiempo, se la ha representado sin alguno de sus atributos tradicionales y se la ha transformado en una joven rodeada de instrumentos astronómicos: esferas armilares, reglas, compases, relojes y telescopios.



Descripción del panel:


Una estrella brilla sobre la frente de Urania, que tiene en sus manos un ejemplar de un volumen de efemérides. En el fondo, las torres del Observatorio de París, un eclipse de Sol y la imagen de un templo clásico, donde los grandes astrónomos del mundo debaten sus teorías. Debajo unos querubines juegan con instrumentos astronómicos.

PRINCESS LEIA ORGANA. Entry related to the daily strip 28-01-2011. THE SECRET IDENTITY OF LIZ. THIS IS THE SWING I CARVED MY NAME INTO, LIZ SAID.


Princess Leia Organa Solo (born Leia Amidala Skywalker) is a fictional character in the Star Wars universe. She is portrayed by actress Carrie Fisher in Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope,[1] Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back,[2] Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi,[3] and The Star Wars Holiday Special. Aiden Barton appeared as an infant Leia in Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. Ann Sachs provided the voice of Leia in the 1980s radio dramatizations of the original Star Wars trilogy.

She is depicted as one of the main protagonists of the original Star Wars trilogy. In Return of the Jedi, it is revealed that she is the twin sister of Luke Skywalker, and thus the daughter of Darth Vader. In the Star Wars prequel films, her mother is identified as Padmé Amidala. Her adoptive father is Bail Organa, who is depicted as the head of Alderaan's royal family and a supporting character in the prequels; in later Star Wars literature she marries Han Solo, her romantic interest in the original films.[4]

In 2008, Princess Leia was selected by Empire Magazine as the 89th of the greatest film characters of all time.[
