Second life!

My avatar in second life is called Trinity Kozlov. This program is really fun, here you can walk, talk and also fly!. You can buy products, meet new people and go to other places. At the begining I didn't know how to do these things but then I learned by some instructions that were around the first place. I expect to be able to find interesting places, and to learn more about this world. I didn't vist too many places because I didn't know where to go, but at the end, I could visit other place like a mall and there were others avatars. I talked, and walked a while, then I flew, and I learned how to sit, and how to change my appearance. I still have to learn how to make money there. ;]

The Story of Stuff.

The video shows us how the man still destroying something so vital to us as it is our planet.As the time passes we can see how the trees and the natural resources are being attacked once again by the hand of the man. And also we can see how the factories work with toxic materials which contaminates the air, and the product also goes out on sale contaminated.On the other hand, the government and the advertising,tv and radio publicity has taken charge wanting to establish routines of purchases to the man,indicating products that people should buy and according to this kind of media, and to receive the factories the benefits, they show them that like that people will be "in" fashion, and happy. Finally this product becomes obsolete and there aren't many ways to help to the process of recycling, this accumulation of garbage also contaminates our planet. This video shows us that we must and we need to take conscience about it and begin to act and to device new ideas that help us to take the attention of the people,to let them know what's really happening in our planet, this way we try to make this world a better world for the next generations.

Electronic engineering

Electronic engineering (i′lek′trän•ik ′en•jə′nir•iŋ) is a discipline dealing with the behavior and effects of electrons (as in electron tubes and transistors) and with electronic devices, systems, or equipment. The term now also covers a large part of electrical engineering degree courses as studied at most European universities. In the U.S., however, electrical engineering implies all the wide electrical disciplines including electronics.
In many areas, electronic engineering is considered to be at the same level as electrical engineering, requiring that more general programs be called electrical and electronic engineering (many UK and Turkish universities have departments of Electronic and Electrical Engineering). Both define a broad field that encompasses many subfields including those that deal with power, instrumentation engineering, telecommunications, and semiconductor circuit design amongst many others.

The name electrical engineering is still used to cover electronic engineering amongst some of the older (notably American) universities and graduates there are called electrical engineers. The distinction between electronic and electrical engineers is becoming more and more distinct. While electrical engineers utilize voltage and current to deliver power, electronic engineers utilize voltage and current to deliver information.

\tran-ˈzis-tər, tran(t)-ˈsis-\
1transfer + resistor; from its transferring an electrical signal across a resistor
1 : a solid-state electronic device that is used to control the flow of electricity in electronic equipment and usually consists of a small block of a semiconductor (as germanium) with at least three electrodes

Etymology:electr- + 2-on
A stable subatomic particle in the lepton family having a rest mass of 9.1066 × 10-28 grams and a unit negative electric charge of approximately 1.602 × 10-19 coulombs.

Going Green

Going green is a trend that has been getting more and more important lately, most companies and organization have been changing their standards toward environmental issues, in this webcast, IBM is shown to have gotten these things heavily into consideration, with the development of new technology for the manufacture of eco-friendly equipments.

This will have a very positive impact on users as it will lower the power they consume and it will reduce their gas emission. Nowdays is when consumer attitudes and government policies around the world combine to pressure companies to reduce the impact of their operations on the environment, makers are asking themselves how they can use core business processes to plan for and manage their green initiatives. Executives at some of the world’s most successful companies like this one, are convinced that adopting environmentally sound green practices can be a boost to profitability, not a drag.

It's important to act and do something against the destruction of our own world, and it's something that can no longer be ignored.This webcast can help the green engineer to know more about the financial,operational,social/regulatory and global beneficts using green minds,learning more about this kind of information people can save costs from more efficient energy use, can have more computing performance per kilowatt, and to have a verifiable energy conservation.

About me :O

Hello everyone!
My name is Jessica Cuello [:
I'm nineteen years old. I'm from Maracaibo and I'm studying Electronic Engineering at Urbe.
I love listening to music, especially Muse, I like to read, to do excercises, to make puzzles, to eat any kind of chocolate and I really enjoy going out for dinner.
I don't like hypocrisy and I really hate lies.
My dreams are: graduate, find a good job, travel around the world and visit the most gorgeous and amazing places.
I think english is really important because it is understood and spoken almost everywhere in the world so it's an easy way to comunicate with other people from other countries and that's important for a job. I really like languages and I hope to learn at least 4 languages: Italian, German, French and Chinese.
Well, that's all, take care.
