THE HUFFINGTON POST

AOL compró este periodico por 230 millones de dólares. Fue uno de los gigantes de la vieja guardia de los proveedores Internet y en su época dorada contó con millones de suscriptores en todo el mundo. Pero, ¿quién se acordaba de AOL ahora? Unos dicen que: "el Huffington es un medio que reúne lo peor, los grandes problemas de internet de los últimos años, lo que lo ha convertido en un sitio atractivo para mucha gente, pero tiene que ver poco con el periodismo de calidad"
Otros dicen que: "El Huffington utiliza todas las herramientas de internet y hace su información profundamente social, sus lectores leen, votan, comentan, comparten y tiene una estructura de costes mucho más razonable que la típica redacción cargada de profesionales que trabajan en una sección concreta".

De cualquier manera, es un gran experiencia para estudiantes de inglés de nivel intermedio o intermedio alto leer de vez en cuando este gran periodico.

Existe un link permanente a esta periodico en ENGLISH EXERCISES AND MORE (debajo de English Links, a la derecha de nuestra pagina) en el apartado ENGLISH NEWSPAPERS.

EL INGLES COMO PARADIGMA

Si hay una asignatura que expresa el fracaso educativo es el inglés. Los alumnos salen de la enseñanza media con casi doce cursos de inglés, pero muchos son incapaces de mantener una conversación coherente en la lengua de Bob Dylan. Aquellos encuestados que imparten clases donde el nivel de inglés tiene relevancia lamentan las dificultades con que se encuentran muchos alumnos, aunque también destacan el avance que se ha ido produciendo en los últimos años. En 1995, la nota media de selectividad en inglés fue de 4,21 en junio y de 3,31 en septiembre. Quince años después, los aspirantes merecieron un 6,13 y un 4,71, respectivamente.

«El problema es que se enseña mucha teoría, pero el caso es que, al final del proceso, el alumno no sabe hablar y no entiende lo que le dicen en inglés», expresa un profesor del campus de Ourense. Para Andrés Faíña, el caso del inglés es paradigmático: «Vale para otras asignaturas. Te piden saber todo sobre Cervantes, pero rara vez se hace una lectura reflexiva de un pasaje del Quijote».

WHAT IS A MODAL VERB ?

Modal verbs are very important in English. The modal verbs are different from auxiliary verbs because they modify the meaning of the verb instead of defining a tense. The modal verbs are can, could, must, should, ought to, may, might, shall, will, would, need and dare.

This series will deal with how to form phrases with modal verbs and when and how to use them.

A partir de ahora, "ANGJO" (nuestro avatar) se dedicará a leernos cuentos cortos. Esto será muy util para mejorar nuestro "LISTENING" (comprensión auditiva) y nuestra PRONUNCIACIÓN. CADA MES APARECERÁ AQUI UN NUEVO CAPITULO O CUENTO,
INSTRUCCIONES : 1) Traducir este texto con la ayuda de un diccionario (en la parte inferior de este blog tenemos un diccionario muy bueno). 2)Buscar a la derecha de este blog el reproductor "ENGLISH AUDIOS" 3)Buscar alli el audio que corresponda con el titulo de este post. 4)Hacer click sobre el audio y seguir con la vista el texto mientras lo oimos. 5)Podemos (haciendo click sobre el audio) repetir las partes dificiles 6)Repetir el audio hasta su completa comprensión y dominio auditivo, incluso podemos intentar leer el texto a dúo con ANGJO.Come with us, please. The fat policeman said in English. What ?
Me ? I said. Why ? What´s de matter ? And bring your bag with you. The tall policeman said. I began to ask a question, but policemen never like questions from young men with long hair.

So I stayed quiet, picked up my bag, and went with them. In the station building, there were a lot more policemen, and some people from the train. They were all young people, I saw. Some were afraid, some were bored. The police looked in everybody´s bags. And then the people went back to the train.

My two policemen took me to a table. Your passport, please. The fat policeman said. And open your bag. They looked at my passport, and I opened my bag. There was a young policewoman with red hair at the next table. She had a nice face, so I smiled at her, and she smiled back.

Aaaah. The tall policeman said suddenly. All my dirty shirts and clothes were out on the table. The policeman picked up my bag and turned it over. On to the table, out of my bag, fell packet after packet of U.S. American dollars. Nice, new dollars. Fifty-dollar notes in big packets. A lot of money.

My mouth opened, and stayed open. I couldn´t find my voice. I was suddenly a very interesting person, and a lot of police ran up to our table and stood behind me. 50.000...100.000...150.000... There´s 200.000 dollars here. The tall policeman said. What an interesting bag, Mr. Tom, Walsh. I found my voice again quickly. But its not my bag. I shouted.

There was a big, happy smile, on that policeman´s face. Well. He said. It´s got your name on it. Look. So I looked, and of course, there was my name, and yes of course, it was my bag. So how did 200000 U.S. dollars get into my bag ? You cannot bring U.S. dollars into this country. The fat policeman said.

He had very short grey hair, and little black eyes. He didn´t smile once. But I didn´t bring them. I said quickly. They are not my dollars. I never saw them before in my life, and. There was a lot of noise in the station. I looked out of the window and saw my train. Slowly, It began to move. Hey. I shouted, that´s my train.

The tall policeman laughed. It was a great day for him. Oh no. He said. you are not getting back on that train. You are staying here with us. In our beautiful country. He smiled happily. So I never got back to Sofia on Saturday. I was very unhappy about that.

I wanted to have a little talk with Melanie and Carol. Ask them one or two questions, you know. You are a nice guy, Tom. See you in Sofia, okay. Take you to the best restaurant in town. Yeah. Great. And I never got down to Cyprus or North Africa that winter. Oh well. I live and learn. It´s not an easy life, in prison. But it´s warm in winter. And the food´s not bad.

And I am meeting some interesting people. There´s a man from Georgia U.S.S.R. Boris, his name is. He cames from a place by the Black Sea. He´s a great guy. When we get out of here. He and I are going down to Australia. Brisbane perhaps, or Sydney. Get a job on a ship. Start a new life. Yeah, next year´s going to be okay.

LEONARD COHEN´S SPEECH IN SPAIN

It is a great honour to stand here before you tonight. Perhaps, like the great maestro, Riccardo Muti, I’m not used to standing in front of an audience without an orchestra behind me, but I will do my best as a solo artist tonight.
I stayed up all night last night wondering what I might say to this assembly. After I had eaten all the chocolate bars and peanuts from the minibar, I scribbled a few words. I don’t think I have to refer to them. Obviously, I’m deeply touched to be recognized by the Foundation. But I have come here tonight to express another dimension of gratitude; I think I can do it in three or four minutes.


When I was packing in Los Angeles, I had a sense of unease because I’ve always felt some ambiguity about an award for poetry. Poetry comes from a place that no one commands, that no one conquers. So I feel somewhat like a charlatan to accept an award for an activity which I do not command. In other words, if I knew where the good songs came from I would go there more often.


I was compelled in the midst of that ordeal of packing to go and open my guitar. I have a Conde guitar, which was made in Spain in the great workshop at number 7 Gravina Street. I pick up an instrument I acquired over 40 years ago. I took it out of the case, I lifted it, and it seemed to be filled with helium it was so light. And I brought it to my face and I put my face close to the beautifully designed rosette, and I inhaled the fragrance of the living wood. We know that wood never dies. I inhaled the fragrance of the cedar as fresh as the first day that I acquired the guitar. And a voice seemed to say to me, “You are an old man and you have not said thank you, you have not brought your gratitude back to the soil from which this fragrance arose. And so I come here tonight to thank the soil and the soul of this land that has given me so much.
Because I know that just as an identity card is not a man, a credit rating is not a country.
Now, you know of my deep association and confraternity with the poet Frederico Garcia Lorca. I could say that when I was a young man, an adolescent, and I hungered for a voice, I studied the English poets and I knew their work well, and I copied their styles, but I could not find a voice. It was only when I read, even in translation, the works of Lorca that I understood that there was a voice. It is not that I copied his voice; I would not dare. But he gave me permission to find a voice, to locate a voice, that is to locate a self, a self that that is not fixed, a self that struggles for its own existence.


As I grew older, I understood that instructions came with this voice. What were these instructions? The instructions were never to lament casually. And if one is to express the great inevitable defeat that awaits us all, it must be done within the strict confines of dignity and beauty.
And so I had a voice, but I did not have an instrument. I did not have a song.
And now I’m going to tell you very briefly a story of how I got my song.
I was an indifferent guitar player. I managed a few chords. I only knew a few of them. I sat around with my college friends, drinking and singing the folk songs and the popular songs of the day, but I never in a thousand years thought of myself as a musician or as a singer.


One day in the early sixties, I was visiting my mother’s house in Montreal. Her house was beside a park and in the park was a tennis court where many people come to watch the beautiful young tennis players enjoy their sport. I wandered back to this park which I’d known since my childhood, and there was a young man playing a guitar. He was playing a flamenco guitar, and he was surrounded by two or three girls and boys who were listening to him. I loved the way he played. There was something about the way he played that captured me. It was the way that I wanted to play and knew that I would never be able to play.
Ver mapa más grande
And, I sat there with the other listeners for a few moments and when there was a silence, an appropriate silence, I asked him if he would give me guitar lessons. He was a young man from Spain, and we could only communicate in my broken French and his broken French. He didn’t speak English. And he agreed to give me guitar lessons. I pointed to my mother’s house which you could see from the tennis court, and we made an appointment and settled a price.
He came to my mother’s house the next day and he said, “Let me hear you play something.” I tried to play something, and he said, “You don’t know how to play, do you?’


I said, “No, I don’t know how to play.” He said “First of all, let me tune your guitar. It’s all out of tune.” So he took the guitar, and he tuned it. He said, “It’s not a bad guitar.” It wasn’t the Conde, but it wasn’t a bad guitar. So, he handed it back to me. He said, “Now play.”
I couldn’t play any better.
He said “Let me show you some chords.” And he took the guitar, and he produced a sound from that guitar I had never heard. And he played a sequence of chords with a tremolo, and he said, “Now you do it.” I said, “It’s out of the question. I can’t possibly do it.” He said, “Let me put your fingers on the frets,” and he put my fingers on the frets. And he said, “Now, now play.”
It was a mess. He said, ” I’ll come back tomorrow.”
He came back tomorrow, he put my hands on the guitar, he placed it on my lap in the way that was appropriate, and I began again with those six chords – a six chord progression. Many, many flamenco songs are based on them.


I was a little better that day. The third day – improved, somewhat improved. But I knew the chords now. And, I knew that although I couldn’t coordinate my fingers with my thumb to produce the correct tremolo pattern, I knew the chords; I knew them very, very well.
The next day, he didn’t come. He didn’t come. I had the number of his, of his boarding house in Montreal. I phoned to find out why he had missed the appointment, and they told me that he had taken his life. That he committed suicide.


I knew nothing about the man. I did not know what part of Spain he came from. I did not know why he came to Montreal. I did not know why he played there. I did not know why he he appeared there at that tennis court. I did not know why he took his life.
I was deeply saddened, of course. But now I disclose something that I’ve never spoken in public. It was those six chords, it was that guitar pattern that has been the basis of all my songs and all my music. So, now you will begin to understand the dimensions of the gratitude I have for this country.
Everything that you have found favourable in my work comes from this place. Everything , everything that you have found favourable in my songs and my poetry are inspired by this soil.
So, I thank you so much for the warm hospitality that you have shown my work because it is really yours, and you have allowed me to affix my signature to the bottom of the page.

STEVE JOBS

THE GREAT NAMES 33 - BIOGRAFIA

(PUBLICADO EL 23/8/2010)Es una de las más importantes figuras de la industria de la computación y del entretenimiento digital.
Junto al co-fundador de Apple, Steve Wozniak, Jobs ayudó a la popularización de la computadora personal a finales de los años 70.


En 1972 entra en la universidad Reed College de Portland (Oregón). Asiste a ella tan sólo 6 meses antes de abandonarla debido al alto coste de sus estudios. En lugar de regresar a casa, continúa asistiendo a clases como oyente unos 18 meses más. Curiosamente sus estudios en caligrafía le serían de utilidad cuando diseñara la tipografía del primer Mac.
Tras la consecución de el primer ordenador personal, bautizada como Apple I, Jobs se dedicó a su promoción entre otros aficionados a la informática, tiendas y ferias de electrónica digital, llegando a vender unos 200 ejemplares. A partir de entonces el crecimiento de Apple fue espectacular. En tan sólo 10 años Apple se convirtió en una empresa con 4.000 empleados y Jobs, con 27 años, en el millonario más joven de 1982.

Cook, por entonces jefe de comunicaciones. En abril de 2009 se sometió a un transplante de hígado. En septiembre de ese mismo año, vuelve al trabajo.

Tiene una personalidad muy especial, si veis el video (en la parte superior) vereis hasta que punto.
Junto a Bill Gates y la empresa Google es el responsable del increible avance de las altas tecnologias. Se puede ver lo que fue el comienzo de esta historia (que estamos viviendo) en la pelicula LOS PIRATAS DE SILICON VALLEY (haced click encima, si todavia no sabeis para que sirven los links,)

AMERICA´S PATH TO PERMANENT WAR

CONVERSATIONS WITH HISTORY 12


Bacevich compares their responses to crisis and demonstrates that with each change of doctrine, technology, and political climate, all post World War II presidents continue on the path to permanent war.

He offers a critique of General David Petreaus and the counterinsurgency doctrine and concludes with a call for establishing a more limited definition of America's role in the world, one which requires an informed and enlightened citizen.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY FREDDY MERCURY

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I'm just a poor boy (poor boy), I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go
little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me, to me

Mama, just killed a man
Put a gun against his head
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away
Mama, ooo
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

It's too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time
Goodbye everybody - I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, ooo - (anyway the wind blows)
I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man
Scaramouche, scaramouche, will you do the fandango?
Thunderbolts and lightning - very very frightening me
Galileo, Galileo,
Galileo, Galileo,
Galileo Figaro - magnifico-o-o-o

I'm just a poor boy nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy come easy go - will you let me go
Bismillah! No - we will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let me go
Will not let you go - let me go (never)
Never let you go - let me go
Never let me go - ooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no -
Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has the devil put aside for me
for me
for me
for me

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye?
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Oh baby - can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really mattered - nothing really mattered to me
Anyway the wind blows...

Si Freddy viviese hoy cumpliria 65 años. Como homenaje a mi cantante favorito, hoy tenemos aqui varias versiones de BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY :

They knew Sofia well, they said. Hey Carol, Melanie said. We are staying in Bela Palanka for a day or two. But let´s go over to Sofia this weekend and meet Tom there.
We can meet him on Saturday night at the Hotel Marmara.
Yeah. Its a good hotel. Carol told me. Cheap, but good.

What do you think, Tom ? Great. I said. Lets do that. The train was very slow. We got to Belgrade at six o´clock in the evening. And a lot of people got off. There were only me and the girls in the carriage then.

The guard came and looked at our tickets, and went away again. Carol looked at Melanie. Hey, Mel. She said. Why dont you and Tom go along to the restaurant ? I am not hungry. And I want to sleep for an hour. Er... Food´s very expensive on the train. I said.

I have not got much money just now. I am going to get a job in Sofia. Oh, Tom. Melanie said. Why didn´t you tell us ? Look. You are a nice guy, right ? We are okey for money this week.

We can buy you a meal. Of course we can. Carol said. And look, in Sofia, we can take you to the best restaurant in town.
It´s a great place. We love it. What could I say ? I was hungry. They had money. I didn´t.

So Melanie and I went to the restaurant and had a meal. When we came back, Carol was still alone in the carriage. Melanie put her feet on the seat and went to sleep. At Nis some more people got on the train. And two old men came into our carriage.

They looked at Melanie´s feet on the seat. And talked in loud voices. Carol laughed. And Melanie opened her eyes and sat up. Are we nearly there? She asked Carol and looked out of the window.

Yeah. About half an hour. I think. Why are you getting off at Bela Palanka? I asked. What are you going to do there ? Melanie smiled. Find a cheap hotel. Meet people. Take a look at the town. You know.

Just for a day or two. Carol said. But there´s nothing there. Oh, well. You never know. Melanie laughed. See you in Sofia, right ? On Saturday night. The hotel Marmara. Okey ? eight o´clock.

Carol said. Don´t forget now. Okey. Great. I see you there. The train came into Bela Palanka and stopped. The two girls got off and stood on the platform. They smiled at me through the window.

Saturday. Eight o´clock. Melanie shouted. Okey, I called. They could not hear me because of the noise in the station. They smiled again. Picked up their bags and walked away. Nice girls.
I am going to have a great time in Sofia. I thought. The train left Yugoslavia and crossed into Bulgaria at two o´clock in the morning.

Then the train stopped at some village. I don´t remember the name. I ate an apple and looked out of the window. Suddenly, there were a lot of policemen on the train. Everybody in the carriage sat up and began to talk.

What´s happening ? I said in Italian to the old man next to me. I don´t know. He said in bad Italian. Perhaps they are looking for somebody. Look. The police are taking some people off the train.

Then two policemen came into our carriage. A tall thin one and a short fat one. They looked at everybody carefully. And then, they looked at me again.
