Editorial This is an experimental magazine. Paper is a laboratory. Skill 3 students write here. We are young, who woke up early Monday through Friday and from 5 to 8 in the morning to try to be bilingual one night. The magazine contains several articles. The topics can be found under the issues we care about students. That's why several articles talk about sports and technology is done. The magazine was done in several stages. The truth is that the first step towards creation occurred when we enrolled in the Colombo Americano with a dream to learn English. As time has passed, and the levels of the course, we have been learning the language. At first we only knew general words. Then we construct sentences. Short talks and later paragraphs. In skill II work in short texts and now decided to improve them and publish in this journal. The process was coordinated by Professor Jaisson Urquijo. To make work more organized we divided into three groups: Editors, Diseñes and Marketing. We are all authors of the content. We hope that readers will find topics of interest and read the magazine with a critical eye. We identify errors to correct and improve. Learning English is a matter of record. Learning English is also very exciting and interesting because it is another way of seeing the world. Therefore: The Another way.

Smart buildings have many systems like energy, security, technology and integration. An energy system are automatic and essentially serves to take advantage of the resources and optimizing energy use like lighting, refrigeration systems, ventilation and humidity control.

Moreover, one system based on sensors that detect changes and they can adapt themselves. We can control one smart building by one centralized remote control by computer, individual remote and automatic control. The centralized remote control is one control room where all services are administrated. An individual remote control is for the buildings occupants. They can control different systems like the lighting system. Finally, the automatic control decides which environment is the best for the user.


An automated home can be a very simple grouping of controls, or it can be heavily automated where any appliance that is plugged into electrical power is remotely controlled. Costs mainly include equipment, components, furniture, and custom installation but these represent many benefits. The main benefits or advantages of one smart building are security, to be good advisable and vanguard.

The biggest challenge for telecommunication companies is to stop this fall supporting the packaging of voice with other services.

It is difficult to compete, “We have telephony and broadband, but that's not all, today we talk about mobility and content. The market has 4 basic points and you have to enter them," said the website Community-wave Edwin Lopez, telecommunications manager Emcali. Unfortunately, the fixed telephone companies did not adapt in time now has little to do with the competition. Simply supply the fixed telephone is increasing distance less than the bids offered by cellular telephone. The companies should propose a fixed telephone service less expensive and less confusing to compete in the market

More than two hundred million people remain in Facebook brands more than twenty six million in twitter. Half of Twitter’s users are in college compared to only 28 percent of Facebook users. It shows one principal differences between Facebook and twitter. If you remember Facebook began as a network of universities. The most important conclusion is that in twitter 25% follow a brand but 67% of brand followers willpurchase that specific brand on the other hand in Facebook 40% of his users follow a brand but only 51% brand followers will purchase that specific brand.


Twitter on the other hand, is used by people to tell others, what you are thinking or doing at any given time, is kind of micro blog, is also used to connect the ideas of people. Ultimately, it remains to be seen whether any of them has a profitable business model, promote and sustain or if the exit strategy because is simply to be acquired.

Why Biotechnology? Julian Garcia Arias.

T

he biotechnology can be defined as a technique that uses living cells to obtain or modify a product, improve a plant or an animal, or develop a microorganism for the use with a specific purpose. In other words, the biotechnology is the application of studies and advances in life science to develop commercial products.

Biotechnology has applications in industrial areas such as health care, with the development of new approaches for treating diseases; agriculture, with the development of improved processes; environmental care, such as recycling and cleanup of sites contaminated by industrial activities and other uses such as biodegradable plastics, vegetable oils and biofuels.

10

The difference provided by modern biotechnology is that humans in addition to knowing how to use cells or organisms, it has also learned to manipulate them according to their needs.


One of the promises of biotechnology is to generate innovations and improvements in the areas where it is applied, helping to improve processes related to the use of resources of the environment, however the application of biotechnology poses risks that may be classified into two different categories, the effects on health and environment consequences.

aseball is a game between two teams of nine players each. The goal is to score runs by hitting a thrown ball with a bat and touching a series of four bases arranged at the corners into of a 27.42 mts square(90-foot square), or diamond. This game has two teams at the moment to play, the batting team, who take turns hitting against the pitcher of the other team (pitching). The team with the most runs at the end of the game wins. One team (usually the visiting team) bats in the top, or first half, of every inning. The other team (usually the home team) bats in the bottom, or second half, of every inning.

The goal of the game is to score more points (runs) than the other team. The players on the team at bat attempt to score runs by circling or completing a tour of the four bases set at the corners of the square-shaped baseball diamond. A player bats at home plate and must proceed counterclockwise to first base, second base, third base, and back home in order to score a run. The team in the field attempts both to prevent runs from scoring and to record outs, which remove opposing players from offensive action until their turn in their team's batting order comes up again. When three outs are recorded, the teams switch roles for the next half-inning. If the score of the game is tied after nine innings, extra innings are played to resolve the contest. Children's games are often scheduled for fewer than nine innings Baseball was born (formally) in United States like National League in 1876 in New York.
