Diez motivos por los que los rusos sonríen tan poco He aquí algunas de las singularidades de la sonrisa rusa: 1. Sonrisa con la boca pequeña En Rusia, muchas veces la sonrisa no se hace sólo con los labios, sino que a veces se muestra ligeramente la parte superior de los dientes; enseñar los dientes superiores e inferiores al sonreír se considera vulgar; a esa sonrisa se la denomina “sonrisa de caballo”. 2. “Sonrisa de servicio” La sonrisa en la comunicación rusa no es una muestra de educación. 3. Los rusos no sonríen a los extraños. 4. No es costumbre en Rusia responder a una sonrisa con otra sonrisa. 5. Cuando los rusos sonríen indican una disposición particular hacia un individuo. 6. Los rusos no sonríen cuando están trabajando o haciendo algo serio. 7. Expresión de un excelente estado de ánimo o de una buena disposición hacia el interlocutor. En la comunicación rusa hay una regla: la sonrisa debe ser un reflejo sincero de buen humor y de buena relación. 8. 9. 10. Los rusos no distinguen entre una sonrisa y una risa.

WorldShift Council – Commentary and Analysis of the proceedings of the G-20 President Obama Speaks on Immigration Reform East Room THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much. Please have a seat, everybody. Good morning, and welcome to the White House. Today I’m here with leaders from business, from labor, from faith communities who are united around one goal -- finishing the job of fixing a broken immigration system. This is not just an idea whose time has come; this is an idea whose time has been around for years now. Now, it’s no secret that the American people haven’t seen much out of Washington that they like these days. Even with the shutdown over, and the threat of default eliminated, Democrats and Republicans still have some really big disagreements -- there are some just fundamentally different views about how we should move forward on certain issues. We should be able to work together on a responsible budget that invests in the things that we need to grow our economy and create jobs even while we maintain fiscal discipline. Everybody knows that our current immigration system is broken.

NWDTT NIRA Think Tank Information NIRA's World Directory of Think Tanks (NWDTT) A compilation of information on public policy institutes Since 1993, NIRA has published NIRA's World Directory of Think Tanks (NWDTT), which provides a systematic introduction to the world's most prominent and innovative public policy research institutes, or think tanks. NWDTT provides an overview of the organizational structures and research activities of a large number of think tanks, functioning as the "soft infrastructure" for a global think tank network. Passing through new editions in 1996, 1999, 2002 and 2005 *, NWDTT has become a well-regarded resource for the policy community. This database version of NWDTT is based on the 2005 edition in book form. The 2008 edition of NWDTT contains basic information on approximately 450 institutions from 100 countries. * We regret that NWDTT 2005 is now out of print. ** If we received responses to these inquires, we used the information to update NWDTT.

GTTWatch on think tanks Think tanks A think tank (also called a policy institute) is an organization, institute, corporation, or group that conducts research and engages in advocacy in public policy.[1] Many think tanks are non-profit organizations, which some countries such as the United States and Canada provide with tax exempt status. While many think tanks are funded by governments, interest groups, or businesses, some think tanks also derive income from consulting or research work related to their mandate.[2] In some cases, think tanks are little more than public relations fronts, usually headquartered in state or national seats of government and generating self-serving scholarship that serves the advocacy goals of their industry sponsors. Of course, some think tanks are more legitimate than that. Private funding does not necessarily make a researcher a shill, and some think-tanks produce worthwhile public policy research. Think tanks are funded primarily by large businesses and major foundations. US Government Books
