I’m going to talk about another article; nowadays the AIDS is an important theme in the world because many people die every day for this terrible disease.
Acquired immune deficiency syndrome or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS or Aids) is collection of symptoms and infections resulting of damage to the immune system cause by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in humans. Most researchers believe that HIV originated in sub-Saharan Africa during the twentieth century.
The aids became in a big epidemic in the century XX, and many scientists think that this disease will continue expanding all over the world in the next years. The bad conditions, the lack of sexual education of the people have caused the growth of this disease.
This one is transmitted principally by blood transfusion, Sexual contact and many others but if the woman is pregnant, she can infect her baby the disease through her blood.
These days, there is not any vaccine or cure for the AIDS, the only methods is using an antiretroviral treatment but this one is to slow the aids, due to AIDS is very aggressive and fast.
And many infected people are discriminated for others, even they lose their jobs because of AIDS and no one wants to hire them.
Please take care of yourself, be careful when you are receiving a blood transfusion or having sexual contact, because this disease can take you to the death.

I’m going to talk about the poverty and hunger in the World; about 25,000 people die every day of hunger according to the United Nations. Unfortunately, the children die most often.
The population of our country is 70% poor and 80% live in the extreme poverty; some ones could be guilty for this situation, the government, international companies, unemployment, but the true is that no one is responsible while we, the people suffer the consequences.
The poverty is the condition where people lack something for example: resources and opportunities to satisfy their human necessities, the poor people can’t feed neither get dress although they don’t have medical assistance and jobs where they can get the money for their families.
We can fight against the poverty, if we do actions to help them like social programs or projects to benefit them, the situation can change, but in the real life the people who have this duty don’t worry to disappear with it.
If they have the chance to attend at school; they can survive because the education will help them to escape from hunger and poverty.
There are many organizations that helping to end the poverty , and these ones are comprise with many men and women who work long hours in the fight against the poverty like: action against hunger, ADRA international, Africare, American Jewish world service, American Red Cross, Americares, Australian Overseas Aid Program (AUSAID) and many others.

I’m going to talk about the second cultural and academic week of the licenciatura en Idioma Ingles, today Monday, March 10 Th begins with several lectures about different topics. For example, in the afternoon I saw a movie called “Billy Elliot “where there was a boy who wanted to be a great ballet dancer and his father didn’t want that for him because he thought that the dancing was for girls.
Then around 5: 00 pm, I was in another lecture where an American named Shannon Cole explained about Atlanta, capital of the New South. It was interesting because I learnt many thing about that state of the United States for example the history, the culture, customs, the problems of the city like the water, pollution.
And finally we went to the last lecture of the day with the Ing. Jose Luis Gonzalez de la Fuente, he is the Atimac`s president, the topic of his lecture was “Herramientas de la Traduccion” in which he talked about the competitivity of the translation, and the steps that a translator needs to follow in order to make a good work.
For me, it was the most interesting day because I learnt many things that I didn’t know.
I’m going to talk about the violence with the Canadian kill the seals, every year when the spring begins; there is a big slaughter of mammals. Thousands of seals between 12 days and 12 moths die for blows due to the fur and their oil. For many years the slaughter has been hidden of the world. The commercial industry of seal’s fur has been increased during the years because many people like the fur coats. Harp seals are the target of this industry.
The seals hunt occurs on the ice of Canada's East Coast in two areas: the Gulf of St. Lawrence (west of Newfoundland and east of the Magdalene Islands) and the "Front" (northeast of Newfoundland).
The seals are killed by the fishermen from Canada's East Coast; they use wooden clubs, hakapiks (large ice-pick-like clubs) and guns to kill them.
It’s important to note that each killing method is demonstrably cruel. The fishermen kill the seals from moving boats causing them many grave wounds that are difficult to recover.
For that reason many organizations are fighting against this practice that is killing with the population of seals and if this slaughter continues like this, the seals will be extincted in the future.
Protect the seals, they are beautiful animals, we must take care of them, not kill them.

I’m here again, now I’m going to talk about the extinction of animals. The animal world is enormous and we don’t know how many species of animals there are. Around 1.5 millions of these have been named and described by the scientists.
Many of them live in various areas where is impossible to arrive and some animals are unknown for the scientists. Due to the increase in the human population and the Industrial Revolution, many animals have disappeared. The extinction is caused when the human destroys or interrupts their ecosystem.
Approximately, one in four vertebrate species of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish and birds are in serious trouble because the humans have used their habitat, causing the overpopulation, deforestation and desertification of the ground.
If we want to avoid the extinction of the animals, we have to think and take better care of them because we need them to live. In fact there are many organizations that fight against the extinction. For example: Greenpeace is an independent organization which is concerned about the future of the planet.
Here there is a list of the animals in danger.
Polar Bears, Elephants, koalas, Hippopotamus, Pandas, Orcas, Tigers, panthers, Angel Shark, Pink Pigeon, White Tailed Eagle, and others more.
For that reason take care of the animals….. Don’t permit their extinction.
Learn about them and remember that the Extinction is for Ever!

Have you ever stopped to think about how smoking is affecting your body and your life? I recently read an article on the internet about the smoking. The people know that the smoking is bad for their health but they keep smoking. Everybody knows that smoking can cause cancer; the article said that a cigarette contains about 4000 chemicals which the bad ones for your body are Nicotine, Carbon Monoxide and others. When you inhale smoke of a person who is smoking, you breath many of these chemicals, and is more dangerous for a person that breaths the smoke from a cigarette that a person that smokes it.
Many people like the feeling that smoking gives them, the article said that this feeling is for the effect of the nicotine, and many of them think that the cigarettes gives them the sense of independence and freedom.
In Mexico there is a new law against the smoking, for example you’re not allowed to smoke in public areas like schools, restaurants, etc.
Many people spend about $ 480 pesos per year on smoking.
Smoking can have serious effects on your life. Please try to avoid it. Don’t start smoking for influence from others. If they want to die soon is their life but don’t imitate them.
I’m going to talk about one of the most gorgeous Mexican actor Fernando Colunga. I decided to talk about him because I’m his big fan. First I’m going to explain the details about his life.

He has worked in many soup operas, like "Maria Mercedes” where got his first starring. He has made about 20 successful soup operas, which have made him very important in all Latin America.
He studied civil engineering but he decided to work as actor because he had the temptation to be actor. He got his drama education at Centro de Educación Artística (CEA) of Televisa in 1990. He never speaks about his private life; he gets along well with the press, on the other hand he is one of the most famous actors in Mexico, he’s single. Can you believe it? He’s single…
His hobbies are to do exercise, read and go to the movies, but he prefers the motocross, having his own motorcycle, his favorite foods are the pizza and the salmon. He is in good shape because he does exercise everyday and eats healthy food like fruits and vegetables.
But the best of him is that he is a good person and actor for that reason the women like him…
