After studying communications and media in the global context, one issue that continues to interest me is how learning a language contributes to the enculturation process, especially when you button uggs.

This interest has stemmed from my experiences with winter uggs and living in the United States, Germany, New Zealand, and Spain. Throughout my childhood, I have had the opportunity to experience first hand the ways language and culture affect communication. More specifically, I have experienced the way language broadens a person’s perspective of the world. Using the Critical Theory Hypothesis and other research, I will explain how learning a language from a young age improves the individuals understanding and acceptance of a culture. Ultimately, I will show that this leads to an expanded view of all cultures as well as an expanded view of ones self.


Chiswick and Miller (2008) have defined the theory as “a critical learning period.” They have explained that, “At ages below the critical period language learning can lead to native-like proficiency, or language acquisition can occur simply through exposure rather than through tutoring, or language skill acquisition is simply easier.” Out of these three possibilities, I would like to focus most on the second: the idea that a child can excel in a language by being subjected to the language environment rather than proper instruction. An example of this comparison is a child moving to Germany and being submerged in the language and culture versus a child living in the States and only being taught German in a classroom setting.

An article by Pei-Wen (2008) considered the importance of intercultural friendships in this matter. He illustrated the idea that people are more motivated to learn new languages when in a relaxed, informal setting i.e. a desired friendship rather than a forced learning experience. In my opinion, children are less aware of the implications of cultural differences than adults are, so it may be easier for them to “allow their cultural differences to recede into the background.” This could mean that children have one less obstacle in creating and maintaining intercultural friendships than adults do, giving them the advantage of a more relaxed environment in which to learn the language of their foreign friend.


Like a Dream

The daily New York Times (NYT) cites an Obama Administration source as claiming that Chuck Hagel was not pushed to resign and that he himself had started since two weeks ago a series of conversations with Obama, in which they discussed the appropriateness of exit and which resulted in the agreement between them in this regard. However, the dominant view is the Hagel have come under pressure. According to the same backpack, the Secretary of State intended to hold office until the end, but a complex set of factors precipitated his fall.

Among these factors looms thinness of the results obtained so far in Iraq before the advance of the “Islamic State”, and also the disastrous defeat of the Democrats in the recent elections to the Senate. Chuck Hagel General was the only Republican in the Obama Administration, expressed in Bush Administration to reservations about the invasion of Iraq and had been charged with organizing after the gradual withdrawal from Afghanistan and also the Pentagon’s activity under the sign of fiscal restraint. It turns out that the threat of “Islamic State” was again seen in Administration Obama as demand for greater intervention – something that contradicts Hagel profile as accustomed to direct military withdrawals in good order. Also according to another source quoted in the NYT, “the next two years will require a different type of focus” The pressure for Hagel asked the resignation will have come so Obama himself, who thus reacted to criticisms that have rained on the way Company’s management has dealt in particular with the north face backpack, but also with other threats, as was the case of Ebola.

Russia may lose about 140 billion dollars a year because of the sanctions imposed by the West and by the fall in oil prices, said Russian Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, in an interview with Tass news agency. “We lost almost 40 billion dollars a year because of geopolitical sanctions and may lose between 90 and 100 billion dollars annually by the 30% drop in oil prices,” he said.


Night and Day

Today was a great day for washing the cars. The sun was out and it was a beautiful fall day. I started out by vacuuming the inside of the car. Since we have been carting the grandkids around the inside was a mess. As I cleaned the car I wore good headphones and listened to some good tunes. That kept me motivated. Next was on to the windows. That took a while but I cleaned them until they sparkled. The next thing to do was wash the outside. We still had the hose outside and enough of the cleaner that we use when we wash the cars. It was a good thing that I had those skullcandy crushers, because I was starting to get a little bored after washing the outside of the car I continued on to do the waxing of the car. When I was done we that I moved on to car number two. Car number two is a bit smaller so it did not take as long.


After the car washing was finished I took Tucker to the park. I pushed him on the swings and he must have slid down that slide that he loves a hundred times. He played on the monkey bars and all of the other things that are in the park. We took a walk to the hockey Rink. There were kids practicing and he enjoyed watching that. He found some little kids his age to play with. Then we went back to the park and he played some more. It was a good thing that I packed a lunch for him because he was one Hungary little guy by that time.


We came back to the house and he took a nap. That gave me some time to get some things done around the house. The dog hair that accumulated was gross so I was glad to have gotten that done.


The legend of Luigi

It’s called Luigi Russo, but in the country they call all amicably, Gino.

You will be asked, therefore, the immediate convocation of the Permanent table for consultation already officially formed a few months ago and wanted to Train Riverboat by the Mayor as chairman. Of that table for consultation is also part of their Unimpressed Bat believes that it must act outside of any political or partisan logic that can manipulate a subject so important and vital at a time when local businesses are preparing to close Bat provincial budgets end of the year and it is estimated that over 27% of them will close permanently by next December 31st with the disposal of thousands of other jobs that will feed the tens of thousands of couch covers over the past five years this province has seen vanish in nothing without the possibility of reinstatement or conversion with loss of professionalism and even exponential increase in the use of submerged and potential increase in crime, micro and macro.


If all this does not interest opportunists and careerists – they know from Unimpressed Bat – for us, things are different and how well did the CNA are confident that other unions will join the cry of small businesses, disappointed, they decided also to sell their subscriptions to historical representations not glimpsing forms of sure fit protection that give good results or not seeing them anymore. We are certain – say by the Association of Category – that the President Michele De Marinas and with other colleagues of goodwill we will be able not only to affect the weaknesses of this resolution but also to deepen certain conditions that destroy the general interest of categories as well as all the tools to be implemented to recover the enormous resources that are yet to be recovered and represent its element of tax relief but also of ordinary tools of cutting tariffs in a time of ongoing crisis in the sector.

The press note of the Association then ends with these words: I know that this may seem anti-political and but we do politics and propaganda does not matter anything. Di Puglia, mayor allocates allowances for social activities

55 years old and lives with his wife and two children in di Puglia, in the province of Foggia, where a few months ago he was elected Mayor.

Since then divides his days between intense work in Foggia, at the ASL, and the Municipality of small and graceful of the Sub daimio, country orange flag Touring Club, known as the “Loggia of Puglia”.

Passionate lover of the traditions and history of the local, Gino Russo few months ago, during the election campaign that saw him driving a Civic born within a movement of young people, it was dismissed by the electorate of his country with realize the promise of an administrative program meant for projects, but also of changes and new features.



Torremaggiore: A show in the name of Mirko

To tell the spectacle of charity which was held last Saturday in Torremaggiore, we can only do so with the words of the mother of Mirko, born in Torremaggiore June 16, 1996 and then passed away due to a rare disease March 2, 2000.

Since then, the mother and father of Mirko struggle to get and give answers to those who are fighting the same disease, terrible and implacable, Pearson syndrome.

Here’s what he says on the website of the association’s mom Mirko:

“My little Mirko Valerio Emmanuelle was born in Torremaggiore (Fig) on 06/16/1996. Already in the first days of life showed no signs of discomfort, revealed by anemia. And this is how it started our ordeal, our wanderings in various hospitals: San Severe, Naples, etc., coming in at the end “Gasoline” of Genoa, where he was diagnosed with the black and decker lht2220 that plagued our little one.


Mirko was suffering from a very rare syndrome called PEARSON. Pearson syndrome, affects the mitochondria of cells. It ‘a very rare disease with poor prognosis and evolution, not recognized by the state and therefore not taken into account by the official investigation. I mom and her dad, in all the ways we have tried to make him live a life almost “normal”.

We fought with all our might, but the disease was stronger, too devastating, there was always. It appeared first as anemia, was transfused and then had to take Deferral to lower ferritin.  Weakened immune system for a few, was struck by multiple illnesses such as pneumonia caused by CYTOMEGALOVIRUS, had breathing problems due to lack of lht2220…….la fight was continued and we as “soldiers,” the to take on the “” so called by us to play down: was a mixture of carbohydrates, potassium, etc. ……. in the end he also endured dialysis for kidney failure.
We have documented, we improvised researchers, we hoped for a miracle.
March 2, 2000, insesorabile, the day has come more devastating: Mirko had flown in the sky.
All ……………… ended.
Everything began again.
