Science and Technology Class...

The topic of May 26th class was science and technology.

We started talking about Sally Ride, who was the first American woman in space got there. She was only 26 years old at that time and she already had 4 degrees. In my opinion, I think she´s a very influence woman around the world and she has shared her experience with many people, to such a point that she has created organizations to encourage girls to pursue studies in math, science and technology. She´s turning 57 years old today.

On the other hand, we made reference to gadgets. A gadget is a small specialized mechanical or electronic device. We can find many kinds of gadgets, like computers, cellphones, Ipods, cameras, etc. In our days, people are getting used to not living without them and It´s true nowadays they´re a need, but not at the point of having to use them all the time or the most part of it.

Also, we chose three questions to discuss and to give our opinion about.

The first one was: Do you think people should be allowed to clone people or organs of people? Why? In my opinion, I do think people should be allowed to clone organs, because many persons die waiting for a donation, and if organs are cloned, many lives could be saved.

The second one was: What are good and bad points of using computers? Well, good points of using computers could be that you can search for information and to be informed of the most important events around the world. On the other way, bad points are that if you spend too many time in front the computer, you could have problems with your sight and also become a computer vicious person.

And the third one was: How do you think face to face communication differs from communication using computers? There is a huge difference between face to face communication and communication using computers, because in the first one you can tell how the person really is by the facial expressions and gestures. But in the communication using computers the person can fake any personality and make you believe they are someone who they´re not.


What were you doing 10 years ago?
Ten years ago, in 1998, I was studying 3rd grade at Claret´s school. There aren´t specific things that I remember at that age. I probably used to play barbies a lot. I was a great fan of Britney Spears and Shakira too and also I used to dance in front of my mirrow all the time.
5 things you have to do today:
I have to study a lot because I have 3 test by tomorrow. AIso I have to go to the Adolfo Pons hospital cause I have comunity service there; someone is going to tell my group and I what are we gonna do. After that I think I´ll just go home and rest a little bet.

Snacks I enjoy…
I love chocolate a lot, specially the snickers. My favorite snack is ice cream with cereal, like corn pops or choco crispy.

Things I would do if I were a billionaire:
I would buy a big house for my mother and my grandmothers, so they don´t have to do anything there because there are gonna be people who help them in everything. Also I would travel as much as I can; I´d love to visit Hawai. On the other hand, I would buy all the cloth that I want.

Three of my bad habits:
I´m not a patience person, so I´m constantly fighting for anything.

5 places I have lived:
I lived in Cabimas for a year when I was little.

5 jobs I have had:
I´ve usually study a lot because I like getting good grates. Also I´ve loved music and dancing.

3 people I want to know more about:
I would like to know more about: Claudia Sudano, Luis Repizo and Jaime Fuentes.

Welcome to my English Blog!!!

Well people this is my blog, i hope you like it and get to know me more by looking at it.

These are some things here that you can know about me:

First of all, my name is Luisiana Castillo Morales, but people use to call me Luisi. I was born on April 5th, here in Maracaibo. I’m 19 years old and I’m studying Level 6 of Industrial Engineering at URBE right now.

I love music, dancing, acting, watching my favorite TV series like “Supernatural”, “Desperate Housewives”, “Grey’s Anatomy”, "Gossip Girl" and “Friends”. Also, I like going out with my friends and my family, chocolate (a lot) and having as much fun as I can. As you could notice from my picture, my favorite band is RBD... I love them!

I hate being around people who are smoking and brainless people too, rock music, drama and cleaning my room.

My dream is, first of all, graduate of Industrial Engineering with good grates and being a good professional. I also would like to study English in the USA and live there if a have the opportunity. I’d love to create a company with my sister and be happy in everything that I do.

About English, I think I’m good at it and that is a very important language and I actually like it very much. The thing is that I have to practice more my grammatical and vocabulary.
