ANA CRISTINA AYALA HA SIDO LA GANADORA DEL SORTEO

El sorteo se celebró el 28 de Noviembre a las 18`00h en el aula 1 de la extensión de Totana en presencia de todos los alumnos, la profesora Cristina Morcillo y el secretario de la Junta Directiva de la AAEOIL, además de su presidenta Susana Giménez.

Un alumna al azar extrajo primero 3 papeletas, pero fueron nulas ya que los 3 socios contenidas en ellas no habían abonado la cuota de 5€ de este curso a fecha del sorteo, y según las normas ya publicadas, enviadas por email a los socios y puestas en los tablones de todos los centros, si el ganador no hubiera satisfecho dicha cuota a fecha del mismo, no tendría derecho al premio. En la mañana del sorteo, la presidenta estuvo llamando por teléfono a algunos socios, ya que algunos de ellos no habían contestado a ningún email de Susana y a otros porque se desconocian sus correos. No se pudo establecer contacto con algunos de ellos ya que no respondieron a dichas llamadas. Esta asociación ha estado meses avisando de la renovación de la cuota, las cual debía hacerse efectiva en una fecha concreta y también dicha información estaba publicada en este blog y en los tablones de anuncios de los todos los centros de la EOI de Lorca.

Por lo tanto se extrajeron otras 3 papeletas de forma ordenada, de modo que la primera contenía el nombre de la ganadora, Ana Cristina Ayala, la segunda papeleta contenía el nombre de Pedro Jose LLamas y la tercera fue la de Susana Trujillo.

Establecimos contacto con Ana Cristina, para saber si aceptaba el premio, ya que otra de las normas, es que el socio tiene que hacer uso personalmente del premio, es decir, si el socio ganador no puede asitir al evento, el premio pasaría al primer reserva o al segundo reserva, según se diera el caso. Ana aceptó asistir junto a su hermano el próximo 5 de diciembre a las 21`30h al Cine Velasco de Totana, donde Susana le hará entrega de los tickets.

SORTEO AAEOIL. LOTE 4 NOVELAS EN INGLÉS

El 5 de Diciembre se celebrará un sorteo, en el cual un miembro de este blog podrá ganar un magnífico lote de 4 libros.

- TRAVELS WITH MY AUNT by GRAHAM GREEN

 A novel which follows a man who embarks on a journey around the world with his elderly yet adventurous aunt, visiting locations such as Paris and Paraguay, mixing with hippies, war criminals and CIA Agents. From the author of OUR MAN IN HAVANA.


- PRIDE AND PREJUDICE by JANE AUSTEN
 Pride and Prejudice is the most popular of Jane Austen's novels, combining an eventful plot, sparkling dialogue and characters that delight us even in their absurdity. Niroot Puttapipat's exquisitely detailed illustrations - commissioned by The Folio Society for this new edition - perfectly capture the spirit of the Austen's masterpiece.



- SHORT STORIES by HEMINGWAY

'In the fall the war was always there but we did not go to it any more'
From In Another Country

Taken from every stage of his career, twenty-six tales reflect the particular genius of Hemingway’s deceptively simple style. His lean, terse prose perfectly complements his subjects: the rugged grandeur of the forests and lakes of north-west American logging country, the brutal grace of Spanish bullfights and the raw spirit of the Central African savannah.
The selection includes ‘The Snows of Kilimanjaro’, ‘In Another Country’, ‘Fathers and Sons’, ‘The Capital of the World’ and ‘The Short Happy Life of Francis Macomber’.

GHOST STORIES AND OTHER HORRID TALES by Charles W. Steward

A nice collection of Ghost stories, all set in a time period from the 1600's to the late 1800's... Some of these were actually quite scary, which was a pleasant surprise, since that's what I wanted them to be!

  Be a member and enjoy reading them!


El sorteo consitirá en introducir unas papeletas en las cuales se escribirán el nick o nombre de cada uno de los miembros de este blog, y un alummo elegido al azar, extraerá 2 papeletas.

La primera será el ganador
La segunda como reserva, por si el ganador no reclama su premio o lo rechaza.

Hacerte miembro de este blog es totalmente gratuito.
Ann y Brent, han cedido a esta asociación un espléndido lote de libros.

La Roche aux Guillemots suivi de Souvenir. GUY DE MAUPASSANT




Voici la saison des guillemots. 
 
D'avril à la fin de mai, avant que les baigneurs parisiens arrivent, on voit 
paraître soudain, sur la petite plage d'Étretat, quelques vieux messieurs
bottés, sanglés en des vestes de chasse.
Ils passent quatre ou cinq jours à
l'hôtel Hauville, disparaissent, reviennent trois semaines plus tard ; puis,
après un nouveau séjour, s'en vont définitivement.
On les revoit au printemps suivant.

Ce sont les derniers chasseurs de guillemots, ceux qui restent des anciens ;
car ils étaient une vingtaine de fanatiques, il y a trente ou quarante ans ; ils ne sont plus que quelques enragés tireurs.


Le guillemot est un oiseau voyageur fort rare, dont les habitudes sont
étranges. Il habite presque toute l'année les parages de Terre-Neuve, des îles Saint-Pierre et Miquelon ; mais, au moment des amours, une bande d'émigrants traverse l'Océan, et, tous les ans, vient pondre et couver au même endroit, à la roche dite aux Guillemots, près d'Étretat. On n'en trouve que là, rien que là. Ils y sont toujours venus, on les a toujours chassés, et ils reviennent encore ; ils reviendront toujours. Sitôt les petits élevés, ils repartent, disparaissent pour un an.

Pourquoi ne vont-ils jamais ailleurs, ne choisissent-ils aucun autre point de cette longue falaise blanche et sans cesse pareille qui court du

Pas-de-Calais au Havre ? Quelle force, quel instinct invincible, quelle habitude séculaire poussent ces oiseaux à revenir en ce lieu ? Quelle première émigration, quelle tempête peut-être a jadis jeté leurs pères sur cette roche ? Et pourquoi les fils, les petit-fils, tous les descendants des premiers y sont-ils toujours retournés !

Ils ne sont pas nombreux : une centaine au plus, comme si une seule famille avait cette tradition, accomplissait ce pèlerinage annuel.

Et chaque printemps, dès que la petite tribu voyageuse s'est réinstallée sur sa roche, les mêmes chasseurs aussi reparaissent dans le village. On les a 

connus jeunes autrefois ; ils sont vieux aujourd'hui, mais fidèles au rendez-vous régulier qu'ils se sont donné depuis trente ou quarante ans. 
Pour rien au monde, ils n'y manqueraient. 
 
C'était par un soir d'avril de l'une des dernières années. Trois des anciens tireurs de guillemots venaient d'arriver ; un d'eux manquait, M. d'Arnelles. 
Il n'avait écrit à personne, n'avait donné aucune nouvelle ! Pourtant il 
n'était point mort, comme tant d'autres ; on l'aurait su. Enfin, las d'attendre, les premiers venus se mirent à table ; et le dîner touchait à sa fin, quand une voiture roula dans la cour de l'hôtellerie ; et bientôt le retardataire entra. 
Il s'assit, joyeux, se frottant les mains, mangea de grand appétit, et, comme un de ses compagnons s'étonnait qu'il fût en redingote, il répondit 
tranquillement : 

-Oui, je n'ai pas eu le temps de me changer. 
On se coucha en sortant de table, car, pour surprendre les oiseaux, il faut partir bien avant le jour.
Rien de joli comme cette chasse, comme cette promenade matinale.

Dès trois heures du matin, les matelots réveillent les chasseurs en jetant du sable dans les vitres. En quelques minutes on est prêt et on descend sur le 
perret. Bien que le crépuscule ne se montre point encore, les étoiles sont un peu pâlies ; la mer fait grincer les galets ; la brise est si fraîche qu'on frissonne un peu, malgré les gros habits. 

Bientôt les deux barques poussées par les hommes, dévalent brusquement sur la pente de cailloux ronds, avec un bruit de toile qu'on déchire ; puis elles se balancent sur les premières vagues. La voile brune monte au mât, 

se gonfle un peu, palpite, hésite et, bombée de nouveau, ronde comme un ventre, emporte les coques goudronnées vers la grande porte d'aval qu'on distingue vaguement dans l'ombre. Le ciel s'éclaircit ; les ténèbres semblent fondre ; la côte paraît voilée encore, la grande côte blanche, droite comme une muraille. 

On franchit la Manne-Porte, voûte énorme où passerait un navire ; on 
double la pointe de la Courtine ; voici le val d'Antifer, le cap du même 
nom ; et soudain on aperçoit une plage où des centaines de mouettes sont posées. 

Voici la roche aux Guillemots. 

C'est tout simplement une petite bosse de la falaise ; et, sur les étroites corniches du roc, des têtes d'oiseaux se montrent, qui regardent les 
barques. 

Ils sont là, immobiles, attendant, ne se risquant point à partir encore. 

Quelques-uns, piqués sur des rebords avancés, ont l'air assis sur leurs 
derrières, dressés en forme de bouteille, car ils ont des pattes si courtes qu'ils semblent, quand ils marchent, glisser comme des bêtes à roulettes ; 
et, pour s'envoler, ne pouvant prendre d'élan, il leur faut se laisser tomber comme des pierres, presque, jusqu'aux hommes qui les guettent. 

Ils connaissent leur infirmité et le danger qu'elle leur crée, et ne se décident pas à vite s'enfuir.
Mais les matelots se mettent à crier, battent leurs bordages avec les tolets de bois, et les oiseaux, pris de peur, s'élancent un à un, dans le vide, 
précipités jusqu'au ras de la vague ; puis, les ailes battant à coups rapides, ils filent, filent et gagnent le large, quand une grêle de plombs ne les jette 
pas à l'eau. Pendant une heure on les mitraille ainsi, les forçant à déguerpir l'un après l'autre ; et quelquefois les femelles au nid, acharnées à couver, ne s'en vont point ; et reçoivent coup sur coup les décharges qui font jaillir 
sur la roche blanche des gouttelettes de sang rose, tandis que la bête expire
sans avoir quitté ses oeufs.

Le premier jour, M. d'Arnelles chassa avec son entrain habituel ; mais, quand on repartit vers dix heures, sous le haut soleil radieux, qui jetait de grands triangles de lumière dans les échancrures blanches de la côte, il se montra un peu soucieux, rêvant parfois, contre son habitude.

WAYS TO BE GREEN

Are you ready tAre you ready to o go GREEN?  Many Americans are becoming GREEN.  So what does being GREEN actually mean?  Well, it means you are becoming friendly with the environment.  It means you care about your environment and what you do in your daily activities that affects the environment.
So, if you're not already GREEN, how do you become GREEN?  Here are some tips on how to become GREEN or GREENER.

1.  Take a bag with you to the store.  All those plastic grocery bags costs energy to make and if they are not used again, they end up in our landfills.

2.  Recycle all your plastics.  Plastics use energy to make and do not breakdown quickly in a landfill.  Recycle those plastics so they may live again.

3.  Drink from a glass or mug.  All that paper that you use to drink soda or coffee cost energy to make and again often ends up in landfills.

4.  Turn down the water heater in your home just a few degrees and save energy.  Turning down the water heater just 10 degrees can save TONS of energy.

5.  Switch out the incandescent bulbs in your house for fluorescent bulbs.  This may save over 50 dollars per year and save energy.

6.  Lower your heating thermostat by a degree or two in the winter and raise it in the summer.  This will save energy for everyone.

7.  Drive slower and start slower.  Racing off and quick stops wastes gasoline.  A heavy foot can cost a driver in gasoline.  (And brake pads.)

8.  Replace older appliances with new energy-efficient models.  Making electricity uses a lot of energy.

9.  Unplug items that use electricity when they are not being used.  Many of the chargers used today consume energy when they are not charging anything.

10.  Dry some of your clothes outside instead of using the dryer.  Let the warm air dry your clothes instead of fossil fuels.

INTERMEDIATE REAGINGS

The Planets

  The Sun is at the center of the planets. Close to it are the inner planets - Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars.
  Mercury the planet closest to the Sun, is a cratered rock not much bigger than our Moon.  It is incredibly hot and unable to support any kind of life.  The atmosphere contains sodium and potassium.
  Venus is the next planet from the Sun and is about the same size as the Earth.  The atmosphere is made up of mainly carbon dioxide.  The surface temperature can be as high as 480 degrees Celsius.  There is no life of any kind on the planet Venus.
Earth
  Earth is the only planet that has the conditions to support life.  The surface is neither very cold nor very hot.  Water can exist in all its three forms - as gas, liquid, and solid.  These conditions allow plants and animals to live and reproduce.
  Mars, the first planet beyond Earth is smaller than the Earth.  The atmosphere is made up mostly of carbon dioxide.  Water exists on this planet, but only in the form of ice.  The whole planet is a red, lifeless desert.
  The outer planets, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are called the gas giants.  They are much larger than the Earth. The outermost planet, Pluto, is no longer classified as a planet.  It is now called a dwarf Planet.  It is so far away, it is a mystery.

Martial Arts
  The martial arts consist of a series of hand-to-hand unarmed combat tactics.  The most popular are karate, judo, jujitsu, and kung fu.  Many experts believe kung fu does not belong in the category of unarmed self-defense because it can become a killer art in its most violent form.
  Chinese jujitsu and its offshoot, judo, are thousands of years old.  They began in China and Japan.  During the Middle Ages in Japan, common people were not allowed to carry weapons.  They devised a self-defense technique that involved a series of holds, trips, strangles, and falls.  By the 1700's, judo and jujitsu were no longer required for self-defense, but these sports survived stressing grace, physical discipline, and spiritual concentration.
Martial Arts
  Jigaro Kano, a Japanese man, founded the first judo school in 1882.  He introduced the system of "belts," with a white belt for a novice and a black belt for an expert.  This system has been extended to karate as well.  Judo came to America in 1902.
  Karate was introduced in an Okinawa school in 1905.  By the year 1922, it had spread to Japan, and eventually was practiced worldwide.  Today, the World Union of Karatedo (Karate) Organization sets the rules governing the use of striking, punching, and kicking on various parts of the body.  Matches last from two to three minutes and points are scored for blows to the neck, face, kidneys, and midsection of an opponent.  The blows are not actually landed: if they were, they could disable or even kill.

Earthquake!

  Maggie had never experienced an earthquake before, only prepared for it.  As long as she could remember, preparing for an earthquake was routine at school.  Her family as well had made plans in the event of a natural disaster.   Living on the west coast of the United States was earthquake country.   However, it was not the same.  Today Maggie was home alone.  Her mind focused on her parents and what could be happening to them.  Maggie knew her mom would be driving home on the busy, congested freeway.  Her mind was preoccupied with preparing supper for Maggie's dad.  Maggie's dad was due to arrive at the airport.  He was coming home from a two week business trip.
  Maggie arrived home from school at the regular time.  She was grabbing a snack from the almost bare pantry, when she felt it.  First just a tremor, then the violent shaking.  Maggie quickly scurried under the large, oak table in the dining room.   The sounds of breaking glass and the crashing of numerous items was deafening.  The table remained intact, and Maggie hugged herself in fear.  Her mind focusing on her parents and what apparent danger they might be in.
  After what seemed like an eternity the earthquake appeared to be over.  Maggie could hear the sound of water rushing below her in the basement.  The smell of natural gas was present in the air.  Maggie knew where the main water valve was located.   Dad had shown her where it was and how to turn it off.   Slowly and cautiously she came out from under the table.  The once tidy ranch home was now almost unrecognizable.  Walls had toppled over and electric sparks were shooting from the outlets.  As Maggie approached the open basement door she could see the steps were still intact.  Carefully holding the handrail she made her way down into the dark basement.  While still on the steps she felt the water rising and rising.  Placing her feet firmly on the floor Maggie felt a sudden surge of pain as a large ceiling beam hit her head and shoulder.   She fell unconscious onto a pile of storage boxes.....

ADVANCED READINGS

Archeologists

  Archeologists are scientists who study the remains of past civilizations.  They reconstruct the past by gathering clues.  Bones are one kind of clue.  Artifacts and fossils are other clues.  Artifacts are objects from the past, usually made by people.   Fossils are impressions or remains of animals and plants that have turned to stone.  Archeologists begin to collect evidence at a spot where people might have lived and worked.  Scientists begin to clear away layers of earth to find signs of human civilization.  Archeologists call this spot a site, or dig.
  Archeologists remove each layer by hand, using many kinds of tools, from shovels to dentist instruments.  They work very slowly because they do not want to damage the delicate artifacts and fossils buried in the soil.  Workers sift the dirt and rubble through a sieve.  They look for things like bits of pottery, tools, seeds, weapons, and bones.
  Archeologists record the exact location of every item they find.  Then they use high-tech equipment to determine the age of each item.  Archeologists must know as much as possible to identify artifacts.

Life on a Glacier

  Is there life on a glacier?  Of course there is!
  The surface of a glacier is a jumble of rock and dirty snow which has been folded and contorted by stress. If you look at it up close it looks like a barren wasteland.  What could possibly live there?  
  The wind is responsible for bringing life to the glacier.  As wind moves over land, it gathers bits of dust and debris.  When the wind sweeps over the glacier it deposits part of the load.  Tiny insects such as spiders, beetles, and flies, grains of pollen from flowers, and minerals are mixed in with the dust.  As these are spread over the snow and ice, they become a feast for tiny creatures such as the snow flea.  The snow flea is a tiny insect that crawls around on the glacier in search of pollen.
  Another creature which exists on a glacier is the ice worm. It is a relative of the earthworm, but less than an inch long. It lives hidden in the cold glacial ice.  Ice worms wriggle between ice crystals near the glacier's surface, but sometimes can be found as deep as six feet.  Ice worms burrow into the glacier's ice during the heat of the day and inch to the surface around dusk to feed.  They depend mainly on the wind to bring their dinner of pollen and other plant materials.  
  Ice worms can survive only under certain conditions.  Temperatures around freezing (32 degrees F.) are perfect.  If they get caught in the sun's heat where it is warmer than 40 degrees F., they will die.  When the ice around them freezes solid and becomes colder than 22 degrees F., their bodies freeze.  Therefore, ice worms are found only in glaciers near the ocean, or where the climate is warm enough for melt water to be in the ice at all times.
  A special algae that grows on the surface of the snow provides food for the ice worm.  Snow alga is a type of green alga.  Its color is red, which provides a screen against the bright rays of the sun.  
  Birds flying over a glacier feed on ice worms and insects, plucking them from the ice.  Other animals use glaciers as a temporary home and a resting place.


Answer the questions below

The main idea of this passage is:
Ice worms are found only in glaciers near the oceans. Many forms of life exist on a glacier.
A glacier is a temporary home for animals.
 
The is responsible for bringing life to a glacier.
