Não deixe que as notas dos seus filhos os definam

O erro como fonte de aprendizado e não como símbolo de fracasso, é necessário e essencial para a vida, mas no sistema educacional de hoje o erro é penalizado. De um jeito ou de outro, todos erramos. Acreditamos que as notas escolares significam algo, que elas nos dizem como nossos filhos estudam, que são inteligentes, como se comportam na sala de aula e, o pior de tudo, nós os ...Read full article...

Don’t let your children’s grades define them

Error as a source of learning rather than a symbol of failure is necessary and essential to life, but in today’s educational system error is penalized. One way or another, we all fall or have fallen into traps.

Facebook, Google and Microsoft follow China’s Communist Business Model

While the Chinese work within a tightly controlled and impenetrable firewall, which allows them to build 5G networks and software platforms, Big Tech strives for dominating the markets for money, and not too long into the future, for complete control of the internet outside Chinese walls. The XXI century’s equivalent of fossil fuels is data, your data. The new wars being fought as we speak are for access and ...Read full article...

Immunotherapy goes beyond treating cancer

Immunotherapy is already responsible for waking up the immune system to attack tumor cells.

The Institut de Recerca de Barcelona (IRB) gathered a group of experts to address this new paradigm and, during ...Read full article...

Why are parents not able to educate anymore?

Mothers and fathers don’t seem to be academically or psychologically prepared to educate. Parents were good educators in the twentieth century, especially at the beginning, when they had a single priority: that their children would survive without starving.

Por que os pais não conseguem mais educar?

Os pais investem na educação infantil de seus filhos como se fossem um fundo de pensão. Mães e pais não parecem estar academicamente ou psicologicamente preparados para educar. Não há coerência, capacidade de relativizar e isso torna o processo educativo dos filhos em experiências inflexíveis e ridículas. Os pais eram bons educadores no século XX, especialmente no começo, quando tinham uma única prioridade: que seus filhos sobrevivessem sem passar ...Read full article...

The Real Story about Ukraine

Recent history about Ukraine, as portrayed by the mainstream media, is far from accurate, not to say that it is totally wrong. Thankfully, honest video and film producers still exist and are able to document what the Establishment does not want the public to learn about their plans and modus operandi. What happened in Ukraine is, well, the same thing that happens to small defenseless nations: They are toyed ...Read full article...
