A real lemon
The used car I bought for three hundred dollars was a lemon. My friends said i was nuts to believe the baloney the seller gave. The seller said that the car was like new, with only ten thousand miles on it. She called it reliable transportation at a very low price. She said she was really selling it for peanuts.
Starting the engine was a piece of cake. I just turned the key - no problem. However, soon I was in a pickle: the brakes didn’t work! The owner of the Cadillac I hit went bananas when he saw the damage to the front of the his car. He started shouting at me and wouldn’t stop. Now I have to pay him two thousand dollars to repair his car. But my friend was a peach. She took my car to the garbage dump so that I didn’t have to see it again.

É certo dizer que os infográficos estão na moda, seja para anúncios e propagandas, para artigos e reportagens, são bons porque sistematizam e demonstram muito bem a informação a ser aprendida.
Quando comecei a usar os mapas mentais com os alunos, tive resultados interessantes não apenas pelos registros (coloridos, engraçados, fáceis de acessar) dos conteúdos das aulas, mas também da aprendizagem dos alunos em relação àquelas demonstrações. Lembravam-se mais rápido, associavam mais facilmente, adquiriam novo conteúdo com mais suavidade.
Para a criação de infográficos, achei este site: canva.com. Funciona como uma plataforma colaborativa que já possui vários templates prontos para serem editados. Para uso gratuito, ficam com a marca d´água, mas não compromete a informação.
Como nosso último post foi em vídeo (https://youtu.be/O4w4AlinB0U) sobre a palavra ODD e seus usos, adicionei outras expressões de ODD neste infográfico bem bacana. Usem e abusem!
Excelente final de semana!!
No blog hoje, seguimos com o "Publique-se" onde Mara Fristachi descreve suas experiências e conhecimentos adquiridos durante sua estada na Índia. Acompanhem que interessante esse contato com o mundo oriental e que mudanças ela retornou como profissional e como pessoa.
"In Coimbatore we were received with flowers. We participated in a puja to Ganesha, the Lord who removes the obstacles, and open the paths, the services and studies, to start the studies day auspiciously.
The Indian people are very different from the western one. Theis logic is a bit illogical in some ways, a lot of fun.
The routine starts early in the morning. I wake up 6:00 am, practice yoga, I have breakfast and 9:00 am start ayurveda class. I study about plants and other substances like oils, urine, minerals, nuts and different forms of substances and their preparations.
At night my friends and I would go to the city center to eat or buy Indian items in the shops or just stroll around. Was very fun. As Indian currency, rupee is very devalued compared to dollar, even if I took little money, I was able to have a lot of fun.
We went to very good restaurants, with good meal and my friends purchased excellent Indian items. Clothes, decoration items, personal health and Indian spices.
Indian people are very religious and there are hindus temples in all city, In the clinic where I stayed there was a temple to Ganesh, the God who removes all obstacles, God of Commerce and abundance.
There are very interesting rituals, such as the ritual of Fire, Havan. This ritual is used when starting new activities such as our course. A priest goes to the place, builds a fire within a circular construction, the priest chants the Mantras that are words of power to Agni, the God of Fire and the participants made the offerings throwing them in the fire according to the order of the priest. Throughout the course a flame was lit all time until its closure, when we had graduation and received our certificates and a graduation scarf .The whole stay was very peculiar.
The Indian people are lovely to Brazilians and the country is fantastic.
I'll be back soon."
