SERIES, THE GOLDEN AGE.

Written by Carmen G.Benítez.

Can you imagine entertainment without watching series? .The consumption of TV series has been growing over the years. Never there have been more series in the history of television than in 2015. The success of the series lies mainly in the great diversity of genres; there are series for all tastes (zombies, superheroes, and villains) and ages.

This success can be explained because of several reasons, the first reason I see is there are new ways of watching series. Watching TV series’ on the internet is a popular past-time. As a result, one does not need to download them, because streaming the series could be legal, easier and quicker. Yomvi is a well known platform for watching your favorite series.  Thousands of series and new episodes are available for streaming.  Furthermore, Netflix is a monthly online television service; currently it has more than 60 million users. Both of them are platforms of online television in which you can choose where and when you see TV.

Apart from that, let me show you a new term; Spin- off .A spin -off in television is a new series which contains characters, a different character or theme elements from a previous series. For example “Better call Saul” is a spin off from” Breaking Bad”.

Finally, today I am going to recommend you Outlander .It is the first in a series of eight historical multi-genre novels by Diana Gabaldon. It is a mix of historical, romance, adventure, and science fiction/fantasy elements.  It is an entertaining and gripping series and it has just finished the first season, so hurry up in order to watch the second season soon.

Looking forward to finding that peaceful place to enjoy as a local citizen?

I think the Canary Islands is the answer to all your wishes.

 

Nowadays  it is very easy to get lost when we are booking our holiday.  There are too many hunters who look for the best businesses, such as tour operators, agencies or intermediaries. For this reason,  we visit forums or web pages where we can find the opinion of someone else.

To help you choosing the best trip destination I will show a little bit of the place where I live, so it is you who decides. It is called Canary Islands, the Spanish paradise, long time ago we were known as “The Lucky Islands”.

We enjoy fabulous weather all over the year. It is 26 degrees roughly almost most of the time and it rarely rains. In here, you will find one of the best sunsets in the world.

 

Apart from our beautiful beaches you can enjoy the attractive view in the forest forest. High mountains that, in clear days, act as balconies from where you can see the rest of the archipelago.

 

If you are a food passionate I am sure you will be delighted with our lovely traditional dishes. Fresh, juicy and tasty vegetables make up our diet.

For these and many more reasons, you might want to visit The Canaries.

Do not let anyone tell you about it.

 

 

The illness is quite another matter!

Written by Piergiorgio Pallara

“Why do we fall ill?”, ” What is the illness?”. These are two usual key questions. Thanks to the 5 biological laws discovered by Doctor Hamer and named “New Germanic Medicine”, now we are able not only to know the whys (etiology) and the wherefores (pathogenesis) of the illness, but we can also answer to a third question: “why has it happened exactly to me?”.

The beginning of any illness: the DHS

What causes the illnesses? No external agent, no debit immunological system, no genetic distortion, but something extremely precise defined “biological conflict”. According to this new paradigm any illness is the result of an acute, unexpected, dramatic and lonely lived shock (DHS).

DHS: the keystone of this new paradigm

When DHS happen, one or more programs selected by the deepest feelings lived and arranged by the nature to cope with the unexpected plight, start. Three levels are involved and act simultaneously: psyche, brain and organ.

The so-called “illnesses” show two different phases

As soon as DHS occurs the eutonia ceases. A sympathecotony totally asymptomatic phase (CA) begins. Heart rhythm and blood speed are high and noradrenaline is released. If this conflict reaches a solution (CL), it starts a vagotonic phase of re-establishment (PCL). It is characterized by weariness, pain, slackening of breath rhythm, coming back of appetite, fever. At the end of the whole process normothony returns and we are well again.

Conclusions

All this implies a totally change in our point of view. Getting out of a disease in time now it’s your own choice.

Discovering our star

How much do we know about our star? What do we know of the light that reaches us? These questions are connected to each other and we going to talk about our star, the Sun.

But… (What do we know?)

We know that the Sun is only a star among millions of stars that inhabit our galaxy, the Milky Way. The Sun is at a distance of 27.000 light-years from the galaxy centre and has two movements: rotation and revolution.

Another important characteristic of the Sun it is its mass and radius. Through this data guess how big it is if we compare it with the Earth. Its radius is 6,96*103km and its mass is 2*103kg, about 333.400 the mass of the Earth.

The Sun has other phenomena such as coronal mass ejections, solar winds or sunspots, but in this post we going to talk about coronal mass ejections.

Coronal mass ejections are explosions where the Sun ejects solar material and particles with a lot of energy. These explosions are a bit dangerous when they arrive at the Earth because they can disrupt communications and cause damage to satellites. When solar particles reach the Earth we can see them at the phenomenon known as aurora.

 Although it appears that we know the Sun, we really do not know many of its secrets. In the following posts, we will talk about another phenomenon and little by little we will improve our knowledge about our star.

Silver or Lead

narcos_serie_de_tv-320030424-largeHave you ever known someone who has never watched a TV show? I bet you that you cannot say YES to that question. It doesn’t matter if it’s an American, British or Spanish TV series, all your friends or relatives have followed at least one episode of this kind of entertainment, so please, continue reading because you will find the most amazing show of all of times below.

I’m completely sure that you are tired of reading thousands of posts on the Internet, which recommend you a TV series day by day, but, in this case, I promise that it will be worth it. And it will be worth it because you can’t compare Narcos with any other TV show that you have ever watched watched.

As you can imagine, I would like to introduce the best Netflix TV original series (forgive me, House of Cards lovers) based in the true story of Medellin Cartel, run by the notorious king of cocaine, Pablo Emilio Escobar Gabiria. The plot centers around the rivalry between Escobar (played by Wagner Moura) and the DEA agent, Steve Murphy (perfomed by Boyd Hoolbrok) but this is just one piece of the puzzle.

Not only for the actors’ performances or because it has been marvellously filmed, the quality of this TV series will make you get hooked on it at first sight, even though you know the story before watching it. So I recommend you to open a big gap on your schedule because you will want to watch the 10 episodes from the first season in a row. “…Silver or lead, you decide.” (Pablo Escobar)

Learning English at Farm-Camp

Captura de pantalla 2016-04-12 a las 12.04.30.png

Nowadays, learning English is really important for a wide range of reasons. Giving our children the opportunity to learn English will allow them to continue their studies in many countries. Do you know of any interesting places where you can improve your English?  Farm-Camp in Guadalajara gives you the opportunity to make it possible.

Farm-Camp is a week long program that includes activities, workshops and games based on a farm which encourages the use of English. Children from 6 to 14 learn English while they are riding a horse, dancing or doing exercise, but also during meals and free time.

The farm is very well situated. It is one hour distance from Madrid by bus. In fact, the last day of the language immersion week consists of an amazing tour of Madrid, visiting the most important places of the city.

The accommodation also makes the visit a very pleasant experience. Facilities have been recently refurnished to offer comfortable classrooms. However, the most beautiful areas are located out of the building, where everybody can enjoy doing different sports, having a nice time with animals or relaxing in green areas.

Nevertheless, it is important to take into account that the weather could be really cold because of its location. Warm clothes are obviously necessary during these days because it is possible that temperatures are not so high.

Don’t you think that these kinds of experiences would be beneficial for learning English? Several groups of students who have been there before think so.

I fell in love with a village

Written by Laura Dámaso

Have you ever fallen in love with a village? I did.

Seven years ago my partner and me arrived in Agaete. We liked its beaches and the beautiful views to Tamadaba but, especially, the posibility to have a house as big as to contain all our books, canvases and paintings.

As in any love story, at first everything was perfect, but  the wind came and we began to distrust our decision.The wind in Agaete can be terrible. It blows  pots and roofs. I believe the wind is the reason why half of the people in Agaete are, how can I say it?, a little bit crazy. The rest, the people that come from another city or  another country… they were crazy before coming.

Sebastian is a perfect example. He was an old swedish man that used to waste his time in the library. The fisrt time I went there I saw Sandra, the nicest librarian I have ever known, trying to convince a stray dog to go out while Sebastian was talking loudly on his mobile phone almost shouting. Although he was a retired businessman he used to dress like a hippie.

Cecile  is a  peculiar woman.  She is a yoga teacher http://www.yogaymas.com/ She came in an old van from Holland with Lex http://www.gran-canaria-info.com/ and their son, Ilja, and they decided that Agaete was going to become their homeland.

My neighbour, Rastatún, is only a pawn, but he devised the most important festival in northern Gran Canaria, Bioagaete, http://www.bioagaeteculturalsolidario.org/  to raise funds for charitable causes. Obviously the real reason I am in love with Agaete is its passionate, creative and crazy people.
