The green that I am.

I would like be much more green that I am but to me be really green requer many willpower and organization. Because to me be green is something that is seen in the perform and can not measure in the speech or though. Are many kinds of action that can measure how can green you are. Be green is relationed with the self cares and the enviroment cares. Cause the ecology is relationed with build a lifestyle that ensure healthy of the people and its enviroment,  considering that with a unhealthy enviroment is so diffcult have a self enviroment.
The carbon charcoal is not a enough way to measure the green that one person is, cause only consider since an individual perspective the quatity of carbon emited by one person and not other activities that contribute altough be indirectly to increase the charcoal footprint. Moreover be ecological is linked too with many other aspects and not only with the carbon emissions, such as the quantity of wastes emited by one people, and by the quantity of products that reused weigh with the products that this persons reject, cause one the big ecological hammers done to the enviroment is the overexploited of resources done by the man intrinsic with the constant raise of production  own of our economic system.
 Personally i am no so green cause my habits are not so green, I somke, I use so much electric energy, and I don´t recycle many products.

Colonialism trough the agriculture.

Well, this post will be relationed with an article that it`s topic is the incorporation of a trde between foods barons of the agriculture and smallholder in Africa. In the article this option is showed as one chance to the littles producers due to keep them make better profits. Between the reasons that backed this thesis we can find the posibility to the farmers of get agricultural technology, like inorganic fertilizer and GM - modifyed genetically- seeds that this parnertship could meant, on fact one the companyes interested in this deal is Monsanto. The article argued that the most of the  African`s solis are infertile, and that with that technology is possibly fertilizer such soils,  of this way the littles producer could be incorporated to the business chain of  the "first" world. There are many curiuos aspects and that show the colonialist logic with which have operated the named "first world". In first place there are not intererest in pass technological knowledges to the farmers or to the africans population for they can do free used of such knowledges, of this way it do dependent to producers from that continent of the products done by this transnational company. In second place we found the troubles that have had this kind of products due to have been proved that such products are highly toxic causing seriuos troubles for the human health. In third place we can found the UPOV 91, this is an agreement that protected no only to the manufacturer of a modifyed genetically seeds with a kind of patent, lately such agreement protect to the plant and fruit grown of this of this seeds, the which are legally recognized like belonging  to such company. In Chile many seeds were sold to Monsanto, it due to that reason that actually the framers must sold such seeds to Monsanto, this seeds  moreover are infertiles that means that the plant grown from this seed don`t give seed for this reasons to do the new crops the farmer must sold again such seeds to the company. This is the trouble caused when the econonomical logics are put over commons interests until arrive to the point that where the only important are the unilateral suplies without  considerer the interest of the other part. The concepts that underlies to this kind of actions such as competition are very dangerous. By other hand this kind of political subtract economical autonomy  to the farmers because make them requer money for get such product before make them less dependent of the money.

English in my life

I think that the english is very useful, thereby is very important. The english that I learned in the school was good, the trouble it was that I did not exercised during my firsts university years, and somethings very important like the grammar to make questions were forgotten by me, probably I would remember if I take a time and think about this, but in the moment of speak it is difficult because must be automatic. To understand the english is a similar situation, I read so slow, and to listen is more diffucult, for wo reasons. By one hand I have not so much feeling auditory - I have not a deficit, but distinguish similar sounds is a few difficult to me-. This situation is wear because during the first university year it was given many texts to read in english - papers generally-, in class like archeology or biology, but we had very cools classmate, that understand very very well the english, they translated them and then did summary about the texts, and it was thats summaries that which  I studied, by practical reasons, we had so much to read and I took so much time reading ans translating thats texts.  Moreover I did not take english in third year of university. 
The english class are important but is a place to exercise the english but are not enough to speak and read fluently, - at elast to me- to get this I need practice it so constantly. I like do blogs ever that the topic be given, if that did not happened, I take so much time thinking in the topic of the blog, and trying to  explain it, - -is difficult to me explain the things in spanish and is more difficult make it in english-, bu I feel that writte blogs have had effect in me cause the last term I took so much time writing the blogs, ever I was the last in end it, but this term I am  faster, so faster.   
Places in the which I use the english outside the class for this time have been only reading some texts about rapa nui culture, that are wrote in english, and take so much time.
To improve my english I think practice it, reading more text en english, and seeing films in english mainly.

The uncertain future.

  1. The university have been very important to me cause have been the place where I have known many people, i have lived many experiences and i have matured and differents aspects.  Thereby I have had a personal and academic learning, I have suffered many changes the which have make of me who am now. To me the university means a new lifestyle because it was linked with my city changes. I think that study anthropology have advantage and disadvantage. The main advantage consist in that the anthropology have a wide field of search and action, cause  studies the culture, and in every place where there is human action there is culture, therefore one can depth in very diverse topics, in this sense is so free. By other hand its main disadvantage consist in that the ethical position is complex, cause you job and studies to people, and many of the institutions that finance this kind of project, make it drawn by own interest the which crash with the interest of the people that one study, Many time the anthropology  is used to justify interventions that affect negatively the life quality of the people, like happen with the studies of enveriomental impact. 
    I would like job in deverses fields, by one hand job with comunities to develop self support strategy that  able them have some independence of the economic system, by other hand I would like job studying the education, cause a think that is very important analyze it since a qualitative perspective, cause I think that with the present education system there is many aspects that lost, cause don´t is make to integrate local knowledge and to accept the difference, other field linked with the previously mentioned and that I would like job is the folk knowledge that are get invisible by the official science. 
    Subject with my strengths and weaknesses I think that I am some indecisive and absentminded and that make me take so much times in complete some activityes, and like a weakness i could say that I adpat a very diverses lifestyle, therefore I could make anthropology in many differents places.

My Family Life

Well I am from Calama, really I was born in Antofagasta but I lived all my chilhood and adolescence in Calama with my parents and my brother and sister, but when I relocated in Santiago for educationals reasons I begun to lived with my Grandparents.  When I begun to live with my grandparents it was so strange because so much time ago that they did not live with someone of my age, ans happened so funny things.
For example a ver funny things tht happened it was when I arrived aroun the 8 o clock, they worried so much, due to this hour it was dark, but with the time I told them that the public transport it was able until later and that the microbus leaved me so near.
Other things is linked with my grandparent´s house is located in Puente Alto, for that reason for be possibly to me go out in the night with firends I must stand in the house of one of my friends. That was so strange for them and also for my parents. I remembered that I had many arguments with my mother, until to the end they leaved me go out  frequetly.
Other very funny things Had place when I had my first boyfriend in Santiago. I remerber that it was around September 18, then my Granmother and my Grandparents told me that it was not convenient that I go out for the night, cause could be thought in badway, thereby I was not able to Hung out for all September Vacations. With the time my grandparents have seen me in deferrent way and not how a child, and Now the realtionship between me an thet is so cool, becuase they are so warm, loving and funny. I enter in the house and ever is so happy, really I love them so much and I Know that they love me too.

Well I`ll speak about  Dancer in the dark, this film was directed by Lars Von Tier, and starrynig by Bjork. Is a very beatyful and intense film cause count the history about a mother -Selma-  that her only desire is safe to her soon of to be blinded, the only way to get this is trough a surgeon very spend. This film is set in United States during the sixtyes, in the cold war, and Selma is an innocent  Czech immigrant that come to United States for found a treatment to her soon, the trouble is that the treatmet is very spent like her who is a factory worker with a modest salary with wich pay the rent from a piece in the house of one police  who live with his ostentatiouis wife. One day in a moment of desesperation the police count to Selma a secret, he is in bankruptcy, and he can´t tell that to his wife because would mean lost her, in this same moment in a reciprocal act  Selma count him her own secret to the police; by one hand she is about to be blinded and by other hand her soon got the same illnes from her and he will be blinded if  is not operated before certain date, therefore she come to United State to  make the money that allow operated him. One day the police ask her if she coul borrow the money that she has saved oneself because the debts are so much for him, she refuse to make that and begin a big drama. The police, unscrupulously steal the Selma`s money to paid his debts and Selma ever thinking in her soon try to recover her money confronting to that police but now he is who refuse to return the money, he treaten her with a gun and finally he is who dead. Then will come the judge where she continuos making loyal to her word - dont tell to anybody that the police was in bankrupcity- and does not count the secret that could be save her, therefore she is condemned to death. The film is a strong criticism  to the culture that generate the capitalism system, in fact put this two personages that represent two very differents logicals, by one hand Selma being over all loyal to her word, an by other hand the police insert in a culture from appearances in where the love, in really is love to  social status - if the police would lost his money, he would lost everything- that spur him to make anything altough this involve damage a novel action and a so fragile people.The money is everything and the famous freedoom proclaim by United States during the cold war is subject to the money. Furthemore the way by Lars Von Tier show this is very intentenes, each scene keep you emphatize with the personage. For last the interpretation of Selma in Bjork is very, very good, giving to the personage an air of innocence and tenderness, the most beautyful and moving part are the moments that preceding to her dead.

Pets in my life.

 In my live I have had differents pets when I lived in Calama with my parents and my brother and sister, we had two dog, bot mongrels,  the first  died when I was 4 years old, in those time I though that it had gone to the heaven, and I said that  to my grandma. After we had a bitch still is in this house, it`s name is Laica. Moreover we had many pets for little time, I remerber that we had many chicks, the problem was that me and my brother and sister were so little, I was 5 years old, and my sister was 3 yeasr old and my brother was 2 years old, and as he was so little, when he did not wigh up his strength and strokes  them so stronge that the poors chiks died. Too we had many cats that we find abandoned near of our  house, generally they was littles cats that suddenly we hearted miaow dspiringly, then we took in and gave food, but as our mom has allergic to cats, we can´t  have them inside to the home, and one day they dissapear. The most curious pets that we had were two hamster, but we was very irrespnsible with they and  died because we did not clean their cage with enough periodicity. Now I live with my grandparents in Santiago and we are not able to care a pet beacuase I am many time out, and my house is full of merchandise to sell and a pet would be a trouble.

A beautiful trip.

The best holidays of my life was this winter vacation, because was very different to me. Me and my calssmaters went to Mexico by one month, and at the moment I can say that was the trip of my life. Experienced a different culture is very  exciting, because keep broad your mind, and I feel that I learned many things, because I Knew to people with differents lyfstyle to the wich  I am used to see,  because they vad other habits and values. We are to a latinoamerican students atroplogy encounter - FEELAA-, the encounter dured one week, and in this week we knew to people from differents coutnries sepecially many colombians, people from Costa Rica and  of course many maxicans, like that we Knew about the reality of that countries, their values and culture and overall we enjoyed so much, cause we talked, joked and hung out, singing, dancing and chating until the sunrise. When the encounter end we began to traveled acrosse Mexico we went to Oaxaca where we was booked by one friend of Ramon; one friend from Costa Rica who we Knew during the FELAA, Oaxaca was a nice city, in this place  I knew to Tania a very nice people, also we went to the beach and to Chiapas state. Thle place that I most liked was Palenque a beatuyful place, we stayed in a  cabin next to little river and we was abled to hear the differents sounds of the landscape like the water, the insects, the wind, was beutyful. We traveled by this places with very nice and special mexicans friends : Omar and Cristofer, the last is a very important peson to me.

A contury that is very interesting to me!

A country that is very interesting visit to me is Cuba. The reasons are that I want to see with my own eyes the life style, the thoug way, summarying the culture of the people and the social organization of this country, because as everything ir regulated of very defferent way to are regulated the things in our context all the things should be very differente to that  we are used to see. I have listened very different opinions about this country, someones hava said that is an ideal country, that every people have their basic necessity filled because the state sure them, the exist a democracy but is different why there is a one plitical party but inside them the people have rights to elect his representants and declare their opinion in relation to the social decisions etc, by other hand other peoples have says that the material shortage is ver stronge, that the most of its population are in sisagreement with their political leaders, that there is not expression freedom, and thus the people have fear to say the thing that they think and give their opinion, that their political system are corrupted, etc. I think that in both opinons current thare are true things, but I wanted have my own opinion product of a direct experiencie, because only with the direct experiencie yo can see the for in wich your thoght way undestand ceratin social reality.

My first term.
It was full of surprises. Between the good things taht happend, I knew to a cousin that only I had seen one time in my life, because she lives so away; in the other extrem of the world. We shared many things, between them we went to Buenos Aires Together. The bad side of this was that I was so desconcentrated in my studies; every evenings I arrived to my home and speak with my cousin until the 11 or 12 or even the 1  o`clock .Only in this moment I begun to think  in my studyes. Due to this situation I throwed one class, the name of this class was feminist theories. For the same reason this term I must to do seven class, furthemore, I must to do two elective sports more english IV  course to leave the university studies and start my thesis and  intenrnship.  
Ohter good things of the past term was that I did one subject in the art faculty of this university and I can say that I learnd so much, because this subject integrated many field  to understand interior and deep attitude like the sublime feels that Julia Kristeva explain very well,  with this feels that can`t be so longer, cause is unbearable to the human minds. I think about this along this winter holidays so much, and was uncredible.

I remeber my fisrt time in this class, I spoken with many teachers for find my class until I stayed here to the computer laboratory in the second session.When I entered the teacher gave me the instructions in english and I did not understand very well, therefore like the only that I knew was in English III everybody have to do a blog, I created a blog and like I belived  that we could writte about any topic, I tryed to Think a Topic and began to writte something about 60 years,  I was very stressful why the post was doing very difficult and large, to me  it was complicated think it in Spanish, and in english it was so much difficult. That situation end when the theacher  near to me and asked me how was my post? and then I undesrtanded everything because I noticed that the class had a blog with the topic and the instructions about we must writte, with that all made lighter, I had to bagin again and end very latter, it was so funny. I think that the blog and the class too had help to improve my english, cause my vocabulary had increased, but at the same time I had noticed that I need learn so much about english.

My loved free time!!

Well in this moment I have no spare time, it is due to the fact I am ending my term, and I didn`t organize my time along the year and now I am paying the consequences. Also It is due to tha fact that I am so slow and distracted  at the moment of studying, but I am hopping and I think that at the end all will be right.
Well, I like to do many things when I have spare time, I like to go out with friends, visit them and see movies, drink, talk about  life, listen to music, go to dance etc. Also I like to do other things like to read novels - to get funny, not to think so much like about university- , to see films, to walk  in the city, to travel to nearby places like Valparaíso or San Felipe, where some friends live, or visit parks around the city.  If I  had more free time I would begin to write, in  fact since  much time ago I have wanted to make a  play, and try to perform it, I don´t care that it be only amateur theatre but it is very exciting to me, it is like a game.  I have talked with some friends about this and we need to have free time to meet up and start.

Phillipe Descola is a french antropology  that was born in 1949, he was student of Levi Strauss and made researchs in the Amazon in 1979, since 2001 he made the class of Nature Antropology at the College de France.
I like Phillipe Descola so much, because he break the traditional point of view about the Human been, that says that main  element that distinguish us from the other animals is the culture, in this direction are building two fields the Nature and the Culture. In the traditional social studyes the characteristic of one society are exclude like properties of the animals, that was seeing without the possibility of build rules, the organization that they have generally  has been considerated genetic by nature. In change Descola suggest 4 means ways to the human been understand his/her relationship with the enviroment  thats are totemism, animism, analogism and naturalism. In the totemism the people view  a material and spiritual continuity between they and the others self of their enviroment, in the animism the people view an inside continuity between them and their enviroment and material discontinuity, in the analogism there are a material and spiritual discontunuity and in the naturalism there are an material continuity and an inside dinscontinuity. The last point of view belong to the western culture and is the reasons by we see a radical difference between the way to be of  we and our enviroment.
