EDITORIAL There are a lot of ways on how to relax and have fun some time. If you do this often, they are called hobby. This could be a sport, singing, dancing or even reading. However, some of this activities could be expensive and/or dangerous like racing, shooting guns, climbing and free falling. One of my hobbies is flying Radio Controlled airplanes. These are little airplanes made of plastic, wood and foam that works with a combustion engine or an electric motor. These airplanes are controlled by a remote control with two sticks, one is used to accelerate and moving the stabilizer (the vertical wing). The other stick is used to move the ailerons and the elevator. Unfortunately this hobby is a bit expensive and there are very high probabilities to crash the airplane. The cost depends, its like buying a car, if you want a luxury one or the best motor, the size and other components

WITH

GUILLERMO CHEANG

1. How hard is computer science in college? • look, everybody is going to start from zero, but it will be easier for science students from cetys, because they should have begun programing since their last year of high school. the best student that I have now, is from fourth semester, which is my favorite student too. he didn’t know anything about programing when he started school, he later became the most talented. 2. Does the congenital condition affect in this career? • I don’t think so, because the main key of the program development, the logic is developable, why don’t you talk about this career and math? basically, they’re very similar, both make you to think about the next step, they just ask you, “what next?” 3. Would you like to talk about your student life, what did you used to do? • when I was younger, I was very busy. due to family difficulties, I used to work in three different places every day after school, so, I must finish all the homework and study while I was in school, because I won’t have time to do that later. honestly, it wasn’t simple, but my grades were very good.


9

4. What do you like to tell to high school graduates to help them make decisions?

• do what you love, be selfish, don’t worry too much. many of us like to repay or parents, is normal, that we do what our parents want us to do, but don’t do that blindly. because being proud of their son, is more meaningful that getting money even though they need that. 5. Will there be more jobs for computer science engineer? • of course it will. now, the problem is lack of talent, is you’re good, you don’t have to worry about the job, job will find you. like a friend of mine, she was very poor and her father was a taxi driver. but she’s very intelligent and talented, so, a company of US found her and employed her.

BLINDNESS The book Blindness was written by Jose Saramago and

published un English version in 1997. Its original title is “Ensaio sobre la ceguera�. This book want to show how a rotten society acts, and what do they do to survive a blindness epidemic.

The author has a characteristic way to write because all the characters that are involve in the book doesn't have a name, the author describes what they do and with external characteristics that he mention you as a reader can know which one is. For

example one of the characters is a doctor. Saramago describes how do people live in a situation in which nobody can see except doctor's wife. She has an important role because she deal with all problems and help the others to do the activities that they want.


22

The plot od the book is that all humans are getting blind because an unexpected reason that no one can explain, so all people began to be scare because they want to be safe and secure of the epidemic. The disease can not be analyze by the doctors because it was something new because it describe as a white blindness. All the people were in conflict because they want to

organize their activities but it was very difficult to have control, move and act when you have a white blindness. The characters describes the blindness as a “mil blindness” because they say that it was like being in a bottle of milk.

From my point of view the book was very easy to read because it describes a lot the places where they are, because you have to imagine how the characters feel. You can imagine how they live and how they deal with a lot of problems such as who was going to be in charge and how do food will be rationed. The way the author writes this book us very unique because the paragraphs are very long so if you are like the readers who read by points , you will need a lot of focus so you don’t loose the main idea of

the paragraph.


23

Mostly all of the people see the final of the book very bad, or with not much sense. A lot of readers expect to have more dramatic ending or more explained, because the story tend to the end in

only one page. From my point of view the final of the book will be better if the last 3 pages do not exist, because in that part is the most interesting because is when all actions were coming back to normality.

NOKIA LUMIA 505!

As a personal user of the Lumia 505, I would give it 3 stars TOPS, on a good day. The 4GB of memory become less than 2 GB, and you can’t have a lot of music in there. If you take a video, you must upload it to your Zune as soon as possible, otherwise, you won’t be able to access some of the apps. The Marketplace is lacking in the amount of apps available. The fact that it doesn’t have a flash makes the 8-megapixel camera sort of worthless. The only few good things are the Office, where you can start Word documents, Excel worksheets or PowerPoint presentations. The email app is also very good. You can have multiple mail accounts all in one, and it will sync every time you get a new email. The Zune player looks really good, and it’s easy to use.

CETYS

26

• 1st Semester: At the start of school, I felt distrust and insecurity because of teachers in middle school had raised in my mind that high school would be a stage of my life in which I would struggle. Over time, I was realizing that school was not difficult, the key was to do homework and put some attention in class to solve the exams and that’s how you could survive in Cetys through the semester. The first semester or first six months were one of the most complex for me, because I had to adapt on how the grading for each teacher was and not only that, but I had to learn to live with the pressure of having several exams every two weeks. But like everything, first semester was a great experience, and I had the opportunity to make new friends and create unforgettable experiences. • 2nd Semester: In this semester, I was able to create more friendships and live more with different people, due to fact that the classroom was all mixed and many were not the same. As for the subjects and teachers, this semester was the easiest, the materials were very simple and dynamic. Teachers were very nice and bright, perhaps one of the best experiences in Cetys. I lived for the first time the famous "week of values" and made several activities which include, dances, food stalls, exhibitions and plays performed by teachers. This semester is claimed to be the most easy and fun, and as a matter of fact it is the easiest and funniest of all six.


27

• 3rd Semester: I describe this semester with two simple words, "the best". This semester was far unmatched and unforgettable, great friendships were formed, irreplaceable memories and in general it was perfect. The teachers were the best. Everyone did their job and each was special in their own way, you could see the love for the students and not only that, the subjects were difficult because of their content, but they made them easy and understandable. At the end of the semester, we were separated but remained friends, we usually meet once every two months to have fun and talk about our personal lives and what we have gone in to. • 4th semester: Ordinary semester, but a bit different, quiet dynamic. This semester we had different activities as an example, we helped a community of fewer opportunities. The semester was difficult in general, teachers did not help but made it worst, I did not complete my goal, but I ended with an average of over nine. Friendships were the same. Usually, the entire school by now was known and it was nothing new to be with people who had not been with you in past classrooms, because they already knew who was who because of generation parties, potlucks, among others.


28

• 5th semester: First six months of the physics – mathematician package, basically unforgettable. This group was composed of 28 men and 5 women, all got along very well and even companies were formed of young entrepreneurs. The companies were successful, some kind of laborious, but in terms of effective teaching. We learned to create a company from scratch and not only that, we also generated sales revenue. The semester was heavy due to differential calculus and programming matters but I achieved my goal, which was end up with an average of nine or more. • 6th semester: by far this semester has been very fun and kind of weird. It has been kind of weird because I have not felt that it’s my last, we as a generation have had parties, and have become more united, but we all know we have a time limit. As a far as academics it has been all normal. We have normal subjects and normal teachers, we by now know everyone including teachers and their kind of grading. I expect this two last months to be fun and entertaining, and most of all I hope we as a generation have a great time in Cancun!

QUICK FACTS

NAME: Tenzin Gyatso OCCUPATION: Activist, Political Leader, Religious Leader BIRTH DATE: July 06, 1935 (Age: 77) PLACE OF BIRTH: Taktser, China ZODIAC SIGN: Cancer Best known for: Dalai Lama, Tibet's political leader has strived to make Tibet an independent and democratic state from China. He and his followers are exiled to India. At age 15, he assumed political power of Tibet as the Dalai Lama. The People's Republic of China invaded that same year. Fearing assassination, he and thousands of followers fled to Dharamsala in northern India, where they established an alternative government. Since then, the Dalai Lama has taken numerous actions in hopes of establishing an autonomous Tibetan state within the People's Republic of China. The Dalai Lama has also conducted hundreds of conferences, lectures and workshops worldwide, as part of his humanitarian efforts. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1989. In December 2008, the Dalai Lama announced his semi-retirement after having gallstone surgery.


30

In the run-up to the 2008 Beijing Olympics, unrest broke out in Tibet in anticipation of media attention and increased repression by the Chinese government. The Dalai Lama pleaded for calm and condemned Chinese violence. This was met with frustration by many in Tibet, who considered his comments ineffective, and allegations by the Chinese that the Dalai Lama incited the violence—an accusation that he strongly denies. On March 10, 2011, on the 52nd anniversary of his exile from Tibet, the Dalai Lama announced that he would give up his role as Tibet's political leader. He said the decision came from a long-held belief that the Tibetans needed a freely elected leader. A spokeswoman from the Chinese foreign ministry called his resignation "a trick."

Attending institutions that conform to students’ academic goals and personalities increases like hood that they will get their degrees and have more fulfilling experiences along the way. Here in Mexicali there are plenty of Universities that can fulfill your knowledge with its careers. The only option if you want medicine is UABC. If you want an engineering there are several options like CETYS, UVM, UABC, Technologic of Mexicali. Here depends on the financial situation because some of them are very expensive, so at least you need an scholarship. The difference between the public and private schools is that in the public they make you a mentality of an employer, however in the private ones they focus on make a business man, an owner of a company, etc.

WHY IPHONE 4S IS BETTER THAN IPHONE 4 •

Have you ever tried to figure out which iphone is better for you and your needs? Well after reading this short essay you will quickly answer your own question, which one is better for me? Iphone’s have been for years the best cell phone in the market, because of its small and compact size, its big and tough memory and most of all because of its fame and popularity. However if you are a business man and music, speed and cyber goodies aren’t your thing, you might want to sit tight because this essay might interest you as well!

• Iphone for a long time has been in the top five cell phones, because of its speed, goodies, smartness and capacity. However, Apple in California has a made a promise between them which is, remaking their own “I devices” annually. Through this last years we have had several iphone’s, which have come in different sizes, shapes and colors. But in this specific last year we had the one that we thought was going to be the best Iphone 4, this iphone was fast, strong, sleek, and with some bold and sharp design, it was sure the most amazing phone out there.


38

• As the year went by Apple announced the new iphone version which was the “4s”, this model was going to overcome its predecessor and outcome every single phone out there, with its new A5 chip. And as Steve Jobs said, it was done. Iphone 4s, was and up to three months ago it was the most amazing phone. However, if you’re not rich and don’t have the money to be throwing it away, you might want to look for some used iphone 4s and get the juice out of it. • Now if your question is, which iphone suits me best? Well that’s simple, if you are between the ages 16 to 24 you might want to update yourself to the new and powerful iphone 4s, because of its processing chip, retina display and its overall power. It might not be that cheap as an Iphone 4, but hell yeah it will meet your expectations! • Nevertheless, if your main goal or worry is not technology, processing components, retina display, accessories and other stuff, you might want to get the old iphone 4, which will give you a good service, and will meet your own expectations. Although you might want to double think that because the price range is about 100 dollars more for the new model, and saving that extra money for that extra difference is very worth it!


39

• My personal regard for you and your friends or family is asking yourself, will I use it constantly?, Will I use it as a computer?, And will I be spending tons of hours in that “I device”? Answer those simple questions and you’ll find out which phone is adequate for you and your needs!

THE DEATH PAUL MCCARTNEY “Paul is dead” is an urban legend suggesting that Paul McCartney of the English rock band The Beatles died in 1966 and was secretly replaced by a look-alike. After 1969, people started to publish articles claiming that clues to Paul’s death could be found in the covers of the albums and in the lyrics of some songs after 1966. It was a rumor that McCartney had been killed in a car accident in London 1966. Some clues are found playing some songs backwards, like “Revolution 9”, it said “turn me on dead man”. In the song “Strawberry fields Forever” in the final section, John Lennon spoke the words “I buried Paul”. Later, Paul revealed the words were actually “cranberry sauce”. The question is Why keeping it a secret? Well maybe because at the time they were getting ridiculously famous and they didn’t want a dead member. That’s why the group supposedly “hired” a guy that look-alike, sang and had the same personality of Paul. Another big clue is in the cover art of the album Abbey Road, where Lennon, dressed in white, symbolizes a heavenly figure. Ringo Starr, dressed black, symbolizes the undertaker. George Harrison in blue jeans and a shirt, representing the gravedigger and McCartney with no shoes which means he is the corpse. In the song “A day in the life” the lyrics are: “I read the news today, oh boy, about a lucky man who made a grade… he blew his mind out in a car. He didn’t notice that the lights had changed”-1967, another clue to the Paul death hoax. Are the clues just coincidental? The much better question who is really behind the story. It’s a big puzzle. Maybe it’s true, or everyone else has wasted time finding it out. If the “real” Paul is dead, then his imposter is still an amazing artist and a good man. He married Linda Eastman, with whom he had four children before losing her to breast cancer in 1998.

THE BOSS •

There was a guy who went into a pet shop to buy a parrot. There were three parrots in the shop. One was $5,000, another one $10,000, and the third one $30,000. The customer asked the owner,

-

How come this guy is $5,000, that’s so expensive for this kind of parrot.

• The owner said, - Because I have trained him and he can talk.” • So the customer asked him, -How about this guy, what can he do that makes him so expensive? -

Well, apart from talking, he can also do some amusing actions, like dancing. So, that’s why he’s so expensive. The owner said.

• Then the customer said, - How about the third one, what can he do that makes him so expensive? • The owner of the shop said, - I don`t know. Normally, I have never heard him talk, not dance, nor whistle, nor sing, nothing at all! But the other two call him “The boss”.

LINCOLN AND KENNEDY There is a strange and creepy relation between Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kenney. First, both names have seven letters; Lincoln was elected in congress in 1846 and Kennedy was elected in congress in 1946. This gets more interesting, Abraham Lincoln was elected president of the US in 1860 and John F. Kennedy in 1960. Lincoln’s secretary was named Kennedy, and guess what, Kennedy’s secretary was named Lincoln. Lincoln’s assassinator was born in 1839, while JKF was born in 1939. This gets better, Lincoln was shot in a theatre and his killer ran from there to a warehouse and was caught there. Kennedy was shot in car named Lincoln and his killer ran from a warehouse and was caught in a theatre. Both presidents were shot in the head on Friday. The best part is that Lincoln was in Monroe, Maryland a week before he was killed. A week before Kennedy’s assassination, he was with Marilyn Monroe. All of these facts may be related to a conspiracy against this two great presidents, probably the Illuminati. On the other hand, it could be just coincidence like the dates, but the events are very similar so there's must be an explanation. One possible reason can be that the political parties had something in disagree. Facts concerning the assassination of Abraham Lincoln and John F. Kennedy are amazingly similar. It is uncertain if such coincidences have any meaning, but the certainly are strange.

HOW ABOUT YOU? •

If some one ask me about my childhood, I’ll remember how awkward I was, because I was literally a “cry baby”, okay, I think I’m. But besides cry, I can remember my super soup made of lettuce, soy sauce, ketchup, apple, orange, pear and many other things that I could find in my house. I just collected the “ingredients” and put them all into a little bucket of mine. The first day, it smelled like soy sauce, second day, it smelled like seafood, and then, my soup just disappeared mysteriously.

Also, the famous “mom’s laws”, they’re so impressive, are kind of superstitions made of my mother. She said, ghost will visit me, if I remove leg hair; I’ll grow a watermelon in my stomach if I eat a watermelon seed; fleas will grow in my head if I get wet in the rain; children that don’t go home at night, their house will disappear; and many others “law” that I used to follow . But unbelievably, I believed them all when I was younger. Now, I think they’re silly, but the sillier was me. I never get angry after I discovered that they’re not true, my mom just invented, because she made them for me, she did that for my good.

I will always remember the days of my childhood. How I wish I could be as carefree and curious as a child once again, and relive those happy days!

SPRING BREAK FAIL

During springbreak 2013, me and my friends planned to go to an event at Ensenada, Baja California called “Baja Beerfest” which it is celebrated each year and we will finally assist because we are adults now. The event consisted in tasting artesanal beers made around Baja California, so we finally decided to go. The same day of the show we traveled to Ensenada and the first thing we did when we arrived was to go eat some shrimp cocktail and for my bad luck I got sick and I started to puke while my friends were allright, so they went to the event all the afternoon while I was dying at the hotel. Later, they arrived at the hotel and decided to go to papas&beer and other nightclubs, they woke me up and asked me how I was but I had fever so I stayed in the hotel.

The morning after we all went back to Mexicali, my friends telling me their stories of the night while I was upset because I went to Ensenada just to throw up and sleep.


TECHNOLOGY IN OUR DAILY LIFE Hypothesis: The problem is the excessive use of electrical devices, such as iPods and smartphones. It can damage our eye sight and causes headaches. This contributes to cause distraction and lack of concentration. Justification: We are presenting this research being a global problem that leads from past years to grow without limits. When a person hears about technology, the first thing that comes to his mind are positive developments that make human life easier. This investigation will research the power of technology in humans. We want to inform people sot hey are always aware that overuse or abuse of this is harmful in many ways. The radiation they produce is a serious problem which will be discussed throughout the investigation to gather information. A company that innovates it’s way to manufacture machines need less staff, so there's more profit to the owner himself and growing unemployment. That’s why there are more careers dedicated to build more technology in the future. The manufacture of electronic devices are polluting our environment due to the materials and substances used. Since the market is based on the sale of all these electronics, nobody cares more of polluting than the money they earn. Televisions and computers with new technology makes the old ones look obsolete and marketing the new ones makes the people always wanting more. The old devices do not disappear by the act of magic, that become garbage or recycling components.
