Fareed Zakaria Suspended by CNN and Time Over Plagiarism One of the brightest lights in the media world, and one of the most influential Indian Americans in the country, has admitted to plagiarism. Time magazine and CNN suspended writer and “GPS” TV host Fareed Zakaria Aug. 10 for one month after it came to light that he had copied information in an article from The New Yorker. A conservative media site called NewsBusters noticed that Zakaria’s column titled “The Case for Gun Control” in the Aug. 20 issue of Time too closely mimicked an April 23 New Yorker article about gun control by historian Jill Lepore. Zakaria issued a statement later in the day Aug. 10 saying, “Media reporters have pointed out that paragraphs in my Time column this week bear close similarities to paragraphs in Jill Lepore’s essay in the April 23 issue of The New Yorker. They are right. I made a terrible mistake. CNN issued a statement reading, “We have reviewed Fareed Zakaria’s Time column, for which he has apologized.

The Power of Belief - Mindset and Success: Eduardo Briceno at TEDxManhattanBeach | TED-Ed Mindset is a simple idea discovered by world-renowned Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck in decades of research on achievement and success—a simple idea that makes all the difference. In a fixed mindset, people believe their basic qualities, like their intelligence or talent, are simply fixed traits. They spend their time documenting their intelligence or talent instead of developing them. They also believe that talent alone creates success—without effort. They’re wrong. In a growth mindset, people believe that their most basic abilities can be developed through dedication and hard work—brains and talent are just the starting point. Teaching a growth mindset creates motivation and productivity in the worlds of business, education, and sports.

50 Educational Podcasts You Should Check Out gennaio 2013 El pasado domingo fui al Rastro de Valencia (para quien nunca ha ido, aconsejo muy vivamente de ir, puedes encontrar de todos, hasta cosas que no se sabe ni a que sirven, pero te lo venden!) Desde Wikipedia: "Actualmente, lo componen alrededor de 500 vendedores que conforman un mercado tradicional consolidado en la ciudad dedicado, según la Ordenanza Municipal de la Venta no Sedentaria del Ayto. de Valencia, a la "venta de antigüedades y objetos usados, así como objetos con fallo o rotura leve." Me encantan estos mercadillos, llenos de cosas raras, antigüedades, cosas de 4 mano y medias rotas . . . me pierdo oras mirando cada objeto que me llame la atención, y la verdad que son muchos! Desde cuando he empezado esta actividad, a veces compro allí parte del material para realizar mis Bijoux. En fin, el otro domingo he encontrado unos juguetes muy divertidos y simpáticos que he utilizado para una nueva linea de Bijoux: la Linea Monstruosa !! Espero que os gusten, a mi me encantan!

Mozilla Ignite QUIENES SOMOS The UK Copyright Service - UK and International Copyright Registration Centre Journalistic Learning  Surrounded by the corporate offices of Facebook and Google, and by Stanford University, Palo Alto, California, is among the nation’s wealthiest and intellectually elite communities. Its affluence might lead many to falsely assume that Palo Alto High exists in a utopian bubble that bears little resemblance to the rest of America; and that it is therefore an anomalous choice for study. However, the school is a microcosm of the cultural challenges and demographic complexities becoming apparent in many parts of the United States. This research includes two years of qualitative field study at Palo Alto High and a broader quantitative survey of 664 high school students from five U.S. states. The curricular goals of the new standards can seem “lofty,” given the economic and structural challenges many school districts and their communities face.

Rellenos sanitarios darán electricidad a Colombia Mientras Suecia y Noruega están en la tarea de importar basura para abastecer sus plantas incineradoras que procesan desperdicios para producir electricidad, Colombia no se queda atrás y empieza a trabajar en este tipo de tecnología para comenzar a ofrecer una nueva alternativa energética. Próximamente entrará a funcionar una planta en San Andrés, en donde se edificó una unidad de generación con residuos sólidos, que tendrá una capacidad instalada de 1,5 megavatios (MW) de potencia, señala un informe de la Unidad de Planeación Minero Energética (Upme). Para su construcción se invirtieron 32.450 millones de pesos. Ya se “completó la etapa de pruebas de componentes y se encuentra lista para la prueba final. Esta infraestructura, fuera de generar energía que se inyectará al sistema, beneficiando a los 17 mil usuarios en la isla, entrará también a solucionar el problema de basuras que se tiene allí. La idea del Gobierno es replicar esta iniciativa en otras zonas del país. José M.
