We all know the tragic story about Kip Kinkel, the young 15 year old boy , who shot and killed both his parents , or what about the Coloumbine high school case, about the two 17 old and 19 year old who killed about 12 students, 2 teachers and hurt many more.

Society at the time, was as they say "totally freaked out". Everyone was trying to bring up an answer to what turned these children, these young teens into these horrible murders, into these sick persons that killed in cold blood.

In the Coloumbine case, after some research in the lives of the two murders, it was found that they both listened to a lot of Marylin Manson music, and had a lot of violent films in their bedrooms. It was then all very clear! It was surely Marylin Manson with his satanic lyrics that brought these kids to brutally killing their fellow classmates.

But , is the media the true factor in incrementing the aggression inside individuals, inside children?
My answer to that, would be no.
We currently live in a globalized world, where the same music that is played in London is played in Germany is played in Brazil is played even here in Mexico. The sameTV shows can be seen worldwide. I have recently, for example, been watching "old episode of" Cow and Chicken (a famous cartoon from the USA) in a German translation. It is clear that the world is watching, now a days, the same shows and listening basically to the same music.
Despite this, not every country has the high levels of violence in schools as the ones that the US presents.
I believe the US presents its high levels of violence due to other factors, cultural factors. But we cannot just blame television for it .It would make sense to blame television for an increment in violence , when the rate of violence world wide had incremented. And, this is not all true. Not all countries that display violent TV shows, TV shows that come from the US, display aggressive behavior.
The world is full of horrible things, but this does not mean that we have to be like that.

I believe we have a power to decide, therefore despite seeing violence, we can decide whether or not we wish to be violent. Television dosen´t need to be the factor that pushes us to be violent. I believe our friends, or our family members could have a greater influence on us becoming violent or not. They could be key factors on the decisions we make...But television?
I don´t know anyone who takes television too seriously. When you are a child, you learn that television is full of make believe. You have to learn that it is not real.

If one knows it´s fake, how could a fake thing ever influence me on what I decide to do in real life ?

Our decisions are influenced by our family, teachers, friends etc. Not by a screen with light.
The problem is, many children are forgotten and are left alone to make their own decisions. It´s the fault of the lack of attention given to them, that brings them to make incorrect decisions and turn violent. It´s a scream for help, coming from a failed family.

Violence has incremented in the US, due to the fact that the family structure in that country is failing. There are more and more single mothers with children, single mothers that leave for work and leave their children behind, untaught and forgotten.

it is not the fault of the violent television programs, or the violent lyrics from Marilyn Manson, it is the fault of family system.
We were given a graph, which shows the amount of time that people from different age groups in Someland invested in different activities throughout a year.
Teens are the group that invested the largest amount of time in watching TV/videos. The number of hours that they spent was around 1,200. This comes very close, to the hours that people over 70 invested in this activity. (1100 hours per year).
Despite the fact, that teens spent the great majority of their time watching TV, they only spent 100 hours a year to go to the Cinema. (Although in this activity they were also one of the groups which invested the most time in .)
The group that invested the most time in socialising with 4 or less people, was the one which had people in their 30´s. After this group, the ones that also invested plenty of their time in this activity were people in their 40´s,50´s and 60´s.
On the contrary, people in their 20´s and teens, invested a lot more time in group activities.

We can clearly see, that the amount of time invested in each activity, has a lot to do with the age group in which a person is in. When a person is young, they will tend to invest a lot more time to socialize with large groups of people, on the contrary when they start to age, the people with which they socialize starts to decrease.
Although young and old people have a common trend, they both spend a lot of their time watching television.
We were given two graphs, that compare the highest level of education of women in Someland between 1945 and 1995.
In the mid forties, the great majority of the women in Someland ( 35% of the women population) either studied up to 12 years of school or didn´t study at all . It was also popular for the women to study for just around 6 years, (15% of the women population did this) Only 1% of the population studied up to first degree. And no one studied up to Post graduate.

This contrasted greatly with what went on in woman´s education in 1995 in Someland. The great majority of the Woman in the mid nineties, finished their First Degree. ( 50% of the population accomplished this.) Not one woman studied less than 9 years. And 20 % of the women in Someland were able to study up to a Post Graduate.

We can therefore conclude that throughout the years in Someland, the level of woman´s education rose. The great majority accomplished to finish a degree.

We have here two different graphs.
One of them shows the millions of lives that were taken in Someland by 6 different diseases during 1990.
the other graph shows how much money was invested on medical research for each disease.

When looking at the graph of Deaths in Someland, we can clearly see that the disease that caused the greatest number of deaths, was TB. TB produced nearly 2 million deaths in 1990 in Someland. No other disease came close to producing the number of deaths that TB produced. The second disease that took the most number of souls was Diarrhoea. Although Diarrhoea, was responsible only for .6 million deaths, contrasting greatly of course with TB!
The other diseases that were responsible responsible for deaths, presented mostly the same death rate as Diarrhoea.They oscillated between .1 million deaths and .6 millions. The disease that took the lowest number of lives was Leprosy, which took approximately .5 million deaths, this was closely followed by Aids, who took about .6 deaths.

On the other hand, the graph that shows how much money was invested on the medical research of each disease, clearly states that the disease which received the greatest amount of funding for medical research was aids. Aids received almost 180 million dollars of funding. No other disease was even close to receiving that amount of money for research.Tropical Diseases received almost the same amount of funding as Leprosy. The disease that received the least amount of money was TB.

Seeing these two graphs, we could conclude that: the more a country invests on medical research of a certain disease, the lower the number of deaths produced by this disease.
If a country wants to reduce its death rate caused by a certain disease, it has to invest money on medical research related with this disease.
Someland invested more in medical research related with AIDS, than with any other disease. This has paid off on the fact that AIDS diseases took only about .3 deaths on 1990.

It was not actually very common, for ladies to smoke in the early sixties, only 10% tended to do this activity. This was actually very different to what occurred in the case of men. In the sixties, about 60% of them smoked . It was very trendy for them to do so .
Despite the popularity that cigarette had with men in the early sixties, the number of men smokers started to decrease drastically throughout the years. By the early nineties, for example, only 30% of the male population smoked, half of what had existed in the early sixties.

The Female population, reacted strangely different from the male . A large group of ladies has never smoked. The highest percentage of women smokers that has existed, occurred in the mid seventies. Where almost 35% of the women population took up smoking. From then on, the number of women smokers has been kept constant. Oscillating between 35 % and 30 %. Being almost equal to the current male smoker population.
As we all know, I have to present in JUly an English test. The IELTS, I could just start blogging in English and stuff, to practice for the writing part...But I think, it´s a lot better to practice with real test exercises. So from now on, my writing is going to be related with test questions..

I) Writing about graph 1 : Number of children in X orphanage

In the mid seventies, the number of children in X orphanage was at its highest point. Nearly 1400 children slept, ate and basically lived in the X orphanage. Despite the high numbers that existed in the mid seventies, this number started to reduce it self through out the years. In the beginning of the eighties the number of orphans was eight hundred. And in 1985 this number reduced itself to more than its half. It was reduced by a third of what it had had in 1980, only 200 children now lived in the X orphanage.

Ok, before writing this, I checked the spelling in Gmail´s spell check, and I got wrong the following word:
beginning.(DOUBLE N N!!!!)

Soucion tarea.
Surge apartir de estas reglas>

1. S SS

2. S (S)

3. S ()

El Backus-Naur form (BNF) (también conocido como Backus-Naur formalism, Backus normal form o Panini-Backus Form) es una metasintaxis usada para expresar gramáticas libres de contexto: es decir, una manera formal de describir lenguajes formales. El BNF se utiliza extensamente como notación para las gramáticas de los lenguajes de programación de la computadora, de los sistemas de comando y de los protocolos de comunicación, así como una notación para representar partes de las gramáticas de la lengua natural (por ejemplo, el metro en la poesía de Venpa). La mayoría de los libros de textos para la teoría y/o la semántica del lenguaje de programación documentan el lenguaje de programación en BNF. Algunas variantes, tales como la augmented Backus-Naur form (ABNF), tienen su propia documentación. Descripción El BNF fue nombrado originalmente después de que John Backus y más adelante (con la sugerencia de Donald Knuth) también después de Peter Naur. Eran dos pioneros en informática, especialmente en el arte del diseño del compilador. La Backus-Naur Form o las gramáticas de BNF tiene semejanzas significativas a las reglas de la gramática de Pāṇini, y a veces también se conoce como Panini-Backus Form . El BNF fue creado como parte de crear las reglas para ALGOL 60. Una especificación de BNF es un sistema de reglas de la derivación, escrito como ::= donde es un nonterminal, y la expresión consiste en secuencias de símbolos y/o secuencias separadas por la barra vertical, '|', indicando una opción, el conjunto es una posible substitución para el símbolo a la izquierda. Los símbolos que nunca aparecen en un lado izquierdo son terminales. Ejemplo [editar] Como ejemplo, considere este BNF para una dirección postal de los E.E.U.U ::= ::= | "." ::= [] | ::= [] ::= "," Esto se traduce a español como: · Un dirección postal consiste de un nombre, seguido por una dirección, seguida por un código postal. · Una parte "personal" consiste en un nombre o una inicial seguido(a) por un punto. · Un nombre consiste de: una parte pesonal seguida por un apellido seguido opcionalmente por una jerarquía o el trato que se la da a la persona (Jr., Sr., o número dinástico) y un salto de línea (end-of-line), o bien una parte personal seguida por un nombre (esta regla ilustra el uso de la repetición en BNFs, cubriendo el caso de la gente que utiliza múltiples nombres y los nombres medios y/o las iniciales). · Una dirección consiste de una especificación opcional del departamento, seguido de un número de casa, seguido por el nombre de la calle, seguido por un salto de línea (end-of-line). · Un apartado posta consiste de una ciudad, seguida por una coma, seguida por un código del estado (recuerden que es un ejemplo que ocurre en EU), seguido por un código postal y este seguido por un salto de línea (end-of-line). Observe que muchas cosas (tales como el formato de una parte personal, de una especificación del apartamento, o código postal) están dejadas sin especificar aquí. Si es necesario, pueden ser descritas usando reglas adicionales de BNF, o dejadas como abstracción si es inaplicable para el propósito actual. Bastante interesante, la sintaxis de BNF se puede representar en BNF como sigue: ::= [] ::= "<" ">" "::=" ::= ::= [ "|" ] ::= ("<" ">" | | "(" ")" | "[" "]") [] ::= [" " ] ::= [] [] Esto asume que no hay Whitespace necesario para la interpretación apropiada de la regla. El se presume para ser el carácter ", y el para ser el fin de línea apropiado especificado (en ASCII, retorno de carro y/o línea nueva, dependiendo del sistema operativo). El y el deben ser substituidos con nombre/etiqueta o el texto literal de una regla declarada, respectivamente. Variantes Hay muchas variantes y extensiones de BNF, posiblemente conteniendo algunos o todos los comodines de expresiones regulares como un "*" o "+". El Extended Backus-Naur form (EBNF) es una variante común. De hecho el ejemplo anterior no es la forma pura inventada para el informe del ALGOL 60. La notación de los corchetes "[ ]" fue introducida algunos años más tarde en la definición de PL/I de la IBM pero ahora se reconoce universal. La ABNF es otra extensión usada comúnmente para describir protocolos del IETF. Las expresiones gramaticales de analizadores sintácticos construidas en BNF y las notaciones de expresión regular para formar una clase alternativa de la gramática formal, que es esencialmente analítica más que generativa en carácter.

Cambaindo de tEMA

saboan que puedes buscar rebelde en wikipedia en la edicion en aleman y

relamente encontrar algo de la teleovela!!!>

RBD (sprich: Rebelde) ist eine Popmusikgruppe aus Mexiko-Stadt in Mexiko. Seit ihrer Gründung im Jahre 2004 hat sie sich zu einem der kommerziell erfolgreichsten Acts der lateinamerikanischen Musik entwickelt und ihre Alben auch in Portugiesisch (für den brasilianischen Markt) und Englisch veröffentlicht.

Neben einer Nominierung für einen Latin Grammy Award in 2006 gewann RBD im gleichen Jahr auch 3 Billboard Latin Music Awards.

Als hilfreich für die Karriere als Band erwies es sich, dass alle Mitglieder dem (jüngeren) Zielpublikum bereits aus der erfolgreichen Telenovela Rebelde bekannt waren, in der sie die Mitglieder einer Popgruppe darstellten. Allerdings konnten die Bandmitglieder zu dieser Zeit bereits auf Karrieren als TV-Schauspieler, Sänger und Kinderstars zurückblicken.

Pues bien tengo una nueva canción favorita:
(se llama katze...has kitties,und musik!..everything I could ever want...)
In dem Brief den du mir gabst, steht nur Scheiß.
Wenn du mich wirklich magst, sag`s doch gleich.
Ich hab kein` Bock auf Schwierigkeiten, keine Energie mich um mich um was zu streiten, das lass ich lieber bleiben.
Denn, im Himmel steht geschrieben ihr sollt euch lieben.
Denn, im Himmel steht geschrieben ihr sollt euch lieben.

In dem Brief den du mir gabst, steht nur Scheiße.
Wenn du mich wirklich magst, sags du`s leise.
Zu vertraut sind mir die Gebärden wenn aus Menschenaffen plötzlich Menschen werden, da kann ich mich nicht wehren. Denn, im Himmel steht geschrieben ihr sollt euch lieben. Denn, im Himmel steht geschrieben ihr sollt euch lieben. im himmel steht im himmel steht im himmel steht ihr sollt euch ihr sollt euch ihr sollt euch ihr sollt euch lieben ..... In dem Brief den du mir gabst, steht nur Scheiß.

ah, sí, hay nuevas cosas que decir de Quake...
The Quake III posee un engine que te permite caragr mdelos 3d en un formato de tipo loads MD3 . Este tipo de formato utliza movimientos de tipo vertices, ( aqui se controla y se guarda cada vertice de modo independiente, no es una animacion que posee jerarquias.Como es el caso de la animacion esqueletal) La ventaja de este tipo de animaciones, es que permite tener más key frames por segundo que lo estandar que era 10, esto hace que haya animaciones mucho mucho más complejas que las que encontrabamos en Quake II.

Otra cosa importantem es que con estos modelos de tipo MD3, los modleos son dividos en 3 difenretes partes las cuales estan atadas entre si. esto se hace para que se pueda separar la cabeza del torso y el torso de las piernas, para que asi cada elemento se mueva libremente. Esto faiclita mucho la animacion procendetal.(you know the kind of animation you use to simulate smoke and stuff)

ahora hablemos de unreal:
Casi todos los personajes, se hacen de dos mallas: un malla en tiempo real con miles de trianbgulos y una malla en detalle con milones de triangulos.

tiene animacion esqueletal que soporta hasta 4 huesos por vertice y esqueltos muy muy complejos.

La animacion es controlaa por el “AnimTree” - un arbol de nodos d animacion.

Que contiene controladorados de como se debe doblar un objeto.
Controladores que dicen como se debe mover tal objeto.
Controladores de fisica , para que respond ante impulsos etc.
