The Space Force of the united States reported that Russia pursues a satellite american



According to the service space of the us, Russian satellites have been shown to be an “unusual disturbing behavior” following a satellite american in orbit. So said the Chief of Space Operations, general John Raymond.

“Last November, the Russian government launched a satellite and later launched a second”, said the commander in a press release this Monday, and added that “these satellites have been manoeuvring to actively close a satellite of the united States government and have behaved in a similar manner to another set of satellites that Russia deployed in 2017, and that the Russian government described as ‘satellites inspectors’”.

The comments of Raymond marked the first declaration on the part of the Space Force , and occur in a moment in which the united States is increasingly concerned about what their opponents are doing in the space, this being one of the reasons why the u.s. government launched this new service in December, the first since 1947.

The administration Trump asked for this Monday, 18 billion dollars for the Space Force , and for other activities related to this service, as part of its budget for the Pentagon this year.

Raymond stressed that the recent actions of Russia placed the country among the nations that “have turned the space into a war zone”.

Similar activities in any other field would be interpreted as a behavior potentially threatening,” said Raymond. “This is an unusual behavior and disturbing and has the potential to create a dangerous situation in the space. The united states believes that these recent activities are a concern and do not reflect the behavior of a responsible nation of the navigation space,” he added.

Raymond also pointed out that one of the Russian satellites “showed characteristics of a weapon when he was throwing, it seemed like a projectile to high speed in the direction of the space after having been launched in 2017, the united States raised the issue during the Conference on Disarmament of the United Nations the following year .

For its part, the Russian Defence Minister, Sergey Shoigú, said that “the purpose of the experiment is to continue working on the evaluation of the technical condition of the satellite home”.

However, Yleem DS Poblete, assistant secretary of State for the control, compliance and verification of arms of the united States, told the conference that “the behavior on orbit the Russian satellite launched in 2017 was inconsistent with everything that has been seen before.”

Moreover, she emphasized that “what Russia says diplomatic and public can be the opposite of what you intended to do with the satellite”, he said.

He grew up under the dictatorship Korean and took personal experiences to tell the story “Parasite”: the life of Bong Joon-ho before the glory at the Oscars




Although fluent in English, Bong refused to talk about it in this awards season, and went to his translator in each delivery. In Korean, thanked and was excited, and even he dedicated to Martin Scorsese his prize staff, in recognition that ended with the entire film industry applauding standing, their top idol, who came to the Oscars with The irish.

The soul of the Parasite is its director, the man of the moment: Bong Joon-ho has just opened a new chapter in the seventh art, and his career came to a standstill to middle age.

Born in the bosom of a middle-class family in south korea says that he grew up watching channel of the united States Armed Forces in Korea. Before entering the university to study Sociology, had his passage through the mandatory military service while the country was under a military dictatorship. It is said that Bong faced the police armed and throwing molotov cocktails, while flirting with the film academy.

In those years of college was the guardian of a teenage boy from a millionaire family, as is the case with the character of Parasite played by actor Choi Woo-Shik. “I imagined what would happen if you bring my friends to that house,” said Joon-ho some months ago to the magazine Vanity Fair. Even if the first job does not last too long -it was two days because they talked much-she served as material for his future film.

Fanatic of the cinema of Alfred Hitchcock, Bong took many elements of Psychosis to the film Parasite: the staircase of the mansion of the Park was inspired by the home of the Bates.

Parasites is a film to see many times because it portrays a world that we all know in any place of the world where we live and that many times is overlooked. It speaks to us of human relationships between families, between social classes of the despair that leads to not having money, of the need to maintain a certain status. It also shows the poverty with its craftiness and vivezas, the stoked used to draw a minimal slice of a cake that always plays the part of girl.

And it shows the rich who live in the bubble of opulence, and that by this condition can be easily fooled. Speaking of submission, of deception, of disappointment, of despair, of fear, of discrimination, of class division and family roles. You can be in South Korea, Argentina, Norway or Singapore. Are issues that we go through to all of them full of contact points in a universal way.

With more than 20-year career, the films of Bong not just at the beginning. But without a doubt Parasite inaugurated a series of projects in unexpected directions by the director a decade ago. HBO is preparing under his wing and executive produced by Adam McKay (Succession) a limited series about the film winner of the Oscar.

Bong highlighted in several interviews that, in its history, there are many loose ends for you to discover in several characters. “I know why the housewife above gets hit in the face the night of the storm-confided in an interview with The Wrap-. With the television series on Parasite I think that we will be able to create a film, expanded high-quality”.

Joon-ho also pointed out that it has many other hidden stories that was stored during the shooting of the film. Was encouraged to move forward that could tell the link of this woman with the architect of the mansion and how she knew the underground bunker. The rumors about the cast started to roll after the delivery of the Oscar, and the name of Mark Ruffalo was one of those who is mentioned as a possible part of the cast.

Prior to the release of Parasite, Bong was working on two projects: one in Korean and another in English. The first is set in Seoul, and is a mixture of genres (horror and a lot of action), while the other is a drama based on a fact, true occurred in 2016, from which they had come with nothing more than locations: United Kingdom, and the united States.

What is instructed to say Bong is that it does not enter never in the universe of superheroes. “I don’t think that Marvel wants a director as I -said in the podcast The Big Ticket-, I don’t expect any offer from them. I don’t think Marvel and I are suited for each other”.

The scientific dissemination will miss the most small: we have shown that it is a mistake to




For decades, the institutions work to promote scientific vocations among the students pre-university. However, it is curious that the stage of Education for Children (until 6 years old) left out of these efforts. There are very few educational practices and initiatives that consider children as subjects of their disclosure strategies.

The reasons are multiple. For a start, the collective imaginary has been established gradually an idea was distorted and impoverished childhood, building a perception puerilizada of the same: “The creatures do not understand anything”.

This thought is reinforced by the fact that the child does not have, at these ages, a domain of instrumental reading, writing and calculation, which presents an added challenge to learning science. It is a topic that is considered too complex for the capabilities of learning of pupils of Children. Therefore, it is advisable to approach it in later stages.

Those who think so forget that science is also a method, critical thinking, and even values. Also forget that neuroscience shows us the enormous plasticity of the brain at these ages; it reveals that, according to the stimulation that you offer to boys and girls, will have a neural network that is more or less rich. A person 4 years does not need to understand in all its complexity, the Theory of General Relativity, but is itself able to assume that science is able to radically change the way you think.

If it is rare to find initiatives of scientific dissemination in childhood, it is much more difficult to find practices in the early childhood classrooms that will disclose the work of science from a gender perspective.

To this end, the research group Impacts of the University of Córdoba we designed the project Infaciencia: girls of today the scientists of tomorrow, which runs from 2017. With it, we hope to:

In these two years we have worked with ten early Childhood Education centers, Elementary and Special Education, and concerted public, Cordoba and Seville. We have managed to bring science closer to 513 school 3 to 6 years, and Special Education. The total number of participants, if we add parents, teachers, and professors is 951. Nearly a thousand people of all ages, from schools, teacher training centres and the university itself, determined to show that it is possible to consider science nothing more to enter the school.

Our experiment informative and has allowed the pupils to investigate for yourself the life and work of 15 scientific professional fields, ranging from primatology to archaeology, through the biology and chemistry. After that, they presented their results in the giant book of The scientific with the eyes of childhood.

The most important thing is that we have been allowed to put to the test active learning methodologies with the teachers and students in training. We have obtained evidence that experience science with the creatures works.

As a conclusion, we can say that the boys and girls of 3 to 6 years old can and should explore the science. To do this can take advantage of their natural curiosity and their particular way of being in the world in imagining creative alternatives and explore new ways to conquer knowledge, unknown.

Make an inquiry science from early Childhood Education allows the smaller ones to be placed differently to the knowledge. Also to gain confidence, to understand that research is a human activity, contextual, and collective. Therefore, they will assume from an early age that have to be viewed not only as consumers of knowledge, but have the challenge of generating new knowledge.

In these ages, that is when they are defining their identity, they can not usurp the right to forge a conception of science to an inclusive one that incorporates the female talent. Must study the value of women who have had to overcome multiple obstacles in order to occupy a space in the science, traditionally reserved for men. Offer scientific models, female will seduce girls to identify with women exciting, who will act as role models. So I open windows for dreaming up new professional horizons, away from social norms and sexist.

Minutes after you exit to the arrivals hall, received the blows for several minutes until we left the place in the middle of pushing and shoving in a vehicle, rugged and grey.

“Venezuela: we are already in Caracas. I bring the commitment of the free world, willing to help us to restore democracy and freedom.

The time came”, he wrote on Twitter before leaving the airport to go to give a speech in the center of Caracas.
