HUNGRY FOLKS GROW AMIDST PLENTY

Abuelos, sabios rebeldes

Dos abuelos, por su edad, pero jóvenes en su manera de encarar la vida, José Luis Sampredro y su coetáneo Stéphan Hessel, están animando con su compromiso vital a las nuevas generaciones a que estas obliguen a cambiar a aquellas personas e instituciones que con su manera de actuar ultra conservadora, oligárquica, están reduciendo los horizontes de libertad, de capacidad de decisión, de vivir dignamente, a millones de personas.

Draft

Multimedia can be a powerful tool for adult education. When used effectively it can captivate an audience, tug emotions, maintain attention, and contextualize scenario-based learning. But creating and producing quality content also has a number of drawbacks in terms of cost, learning curves, and copyright laws. Integrating multimedia into curricula can have a tremendous impact on the learning process, but are the drawbacks worth the trouble?  I've compiled this… Continue

Is Pakistan a Scapegoat for US?

"There has always been, and there is now, a profound conflict of interest between the people and the government of the United States."

— Howard Zinn



What does Pakistan do for the United States? Since 2001, this country has given Pakistan at least $22 billion in aid, so Americans certainly should expect something in return. That's nearly enough money to erase California's long-standing budget deficit or fund the state of Missouri for one year. Well, among other things, the United… Continue
