Un nuevo estilo de vida: los neosolteros Regularmente hablamos de la soltería como un tiempo intermedio mientras encontramos a nuestra media naranja, viéndole las ventajasde estar solo y sacar provecho de la exquisita libertad antes de emparejarnos. El prototipo de soltera ha sido explotado a lo sumo (cine y TV), pero casi siempre gira en torno a la culminación de esa soltería gracias al éxito amoroso, o un fracaso para levantarse e intentarlo de nuevo. Tenemos desde Carrie Bradshaw hasta el viral ”35 años y soltera” de Paula Schargorodsky. Desde hace más de una década, el modelo de vida de los solteros tiende a adquirir rasgos cada vez más concretos hasta llegar a una nueva definición: los neosolteros, los que viven solos por convicción y no como “quedados” o que “se les pasó el tren” como se juzgaba antes. Ver la soltería como un estigma ya es cosa del pasado. El término “neosoltero” realmente no es tan nuevo. Para comprender esta tipología, el sitio Seis Grados les asigna atributos específicos como: Fuente: BLL

Civic Online Reasoning If young people are not prepared to critically evaluate the information that bombards them online, they are apt to be duped by false claims and misleading arguments. To help teachers address these critical skills, we’ve developed assessments of civic online reasoning—the ability to judge the credibility of digital information about social and political issues. These assessments ask students to reason about online content. We’ve designed paper-and-pencil tasks as well as tasks that students complete online. These assessments are intended for flexible classroom use. As part of MediaWise, the Stanford History Education Group is developing and evaluating new civic online reasoning lesson plans for middle and high school students.
La Página de los Cuentos - Texto 'Tripas (Chuck Palahniuk)' de Zama Tripas Tomen aire. Tomen tanto aire como puedan. Esta historia debería durar el tiempo que logren retener el aliento, y después un poco más. Así que escuchen tan rápido como les sea posible. Cuando tenía trece años, un amigo mío escuchó hablar del “pegging”. Entonces mi amigo compra leche y huevos y azúcar y una zanahoria, todos los ingredientes para una tarta de zanahorias. Como si se fuera a casa a meterse una tarta de zanahorias por el culo. En casa, talla la zanahoria hasta convertirla en una contundente herramienta. Entonces la madre del chico grita que es hora de la cena. El se saca la zanahoria y entierra esa cosa resbaladiza y mugrienta entre la ropa sucia debajo de su cama. Después de la cena va a buscar la zanahoria, pero ya no está allí. Mi amigo espera meses bajo una nube oscura, esperando que sus padres lo confronten. Los franceses tienen una frase: “ingenio de escalera”. Algunas bajezas no tienen nombre. También dice que el día anterior estaba un poco drogado.
England's Rock Art : ERA Home Barningham Moor 101, County Durham. Source: NADRAP (Team 5) Image loading ... an array of mysterious symbols carved into the rock surfaces ... Amongst the outcrops and boulders of northern England keen eyes may spot an array of mysterious symbols carved into the rock surfaces. These fascinating carvings are threatened by a combination of human and natural factors; many have already weathered away or been lost to activities such as quarrying. We hope that the ERA website will promote greater enjoyment of rock art; inspire new understanding of this intriguing archaeological material; encourage direct involvement with the recording process; and inform effective management and conservation of a unique cultural resource. The vast majority of our rock art is situated in the countryside.

The Importance, and Incoherence, of Twitter’s Trump Ban Let’s take the easy question first. Nothing in the Constitution prohibits a private company from enforcing its own policies; if anything, the First Amendment protects a company’s right to do so. Now the harder questions. Does censoring a head of state set a dangerous precedent? The suppression of speech we despise can lead down a slippery slope toward the suppression of speech we cherish; indeed, it almost always does. If the Constitution provides a way to remove a sitting President from office under extenuating circumstances, then there must be a way to remove a sitting President from the Internet. The Trump problem hardly caught Twitter by surprise. “I doubt I would be here if it weren’t for social media, to be honest with you,” Donald Trump said in 2017.
Hear the moment when the Boston Symphony Orchestra announced JFK's assassination to a shocked audience Just after 2 p.m. on November 22, 1963, the musicians of the Boston Symphony Orchestra — already onstage at Symphony Hall for a Friday afternoon concert to be simulcast on radio station WGBH — were suddenly handed new sheet music for an unscheduled change in the program. Seconds later, BSO conductor Erich Leinsdorf walked onstage and spoke directly to the gathered audience: “Ladies and gentlemen, we have a press report over the wireless. We hope that it is unconfirmed, but we have to doubt it.” In the moments before Leinsdorf emerged from the wings, he had pre-empted the planned program and rushed the new music to his musicians, according to an interview TIME conducted with longtime BSO librarian William Shisler. Though many in the hall had already heard that President Kennedy had been shot in Dallas an hour before the concert began, nobody knew the severity of the president’s injuries. “The president of the United States has been the victim of an assassination.”
