Courtship Courtship in adolescence is often a bit tricky, because you do not have the experience of a couple that is aimed towards marriage. It is full of obstacles, problems and arguments precisely because of the lack of experience in this broad and complex field. But being beginners is not the only problem, also affect a huge amount of factors, such as school, parents, friends, the image, and the famous "what will they say?” that scares the teenager. Because of these small details is that the couple must work as one, taking into account their flaws, their activities, friends and, most of all, trying to have a dynamic relationship, to avoid a monotonous and boring one.

A relationship, of course, is a work of two. Both the one and the other should be doing their part, giving attention between them but without neglecting the rest. For example, the engine of a vehicle so you can work properly and achieve moving the car, it is necessary that every part, every screw, is placed where it belongs, with their respective pistons, oil, spark plugs in good condition, because they are responsible for spark required for burning fuel, and well, the fuel itself. Relating these aspects with the courtship, the young needs to have all his ideas and clear thoughts, as a vehicle´s engine parts are in their respective places. The couple would be the pistons as they work together to make the relationship possible and they will also cover the spark plugs´ task since they themselves create that "spark" that is present in the couple and try to maintain it, the oil which is there to avoid the temperature destroys the machine, is the relationship between them before and during the courtship. Finally, there is the gasoline or fuel; these are the desire and commitment that everyone, both the boy and the girl have, and do their part so that both have a good time together. Some might say it’s easier the operation of an engine than of a courtship and may be true, as each engine´s piece was previously designed for the tasks and in the idyll ourselves are the ones doing all the jobs instead of having specific parts to do so. But that's what makes the courtship is so tangled and difficult and who can coordinate well and clear his head, full of so many things that the teen burden at this age, will surely be having a beautiful relationship and if not, that´s life for, to be trying and failing and gain the experience needed so that tomorrow we can have a family and being a good person.

Last week, we were hit by a terrible wind storm. The storm started at 2 pm and in the flattest area of the city we were able to see the sand in the air. The wind continued that strong all day and night. The next day we met with fallen trees, there were more than five light poles

that fell by the strong currents of air, among many other things. Is it possible that at these times of technological advancements, we continue to have problems air by storms or rains? The city of Mexicali is not ready for this kind of phenomena. People do not have the education to know how to deal with a situation. It really is unacceptable, yet knowing that our city tends to go through wind storms, electric ones, earthquakes, etc. we still suffer the same consequences as usual. Plus it is not safe for people, also represents heavy losses of money for the town. It is important that people have the knowledge of what to do in case of any phenomenon and that the infrastructure matches the weather that we have. By Armando García Legy

In general I train six days a week, 3 hours each day and in Saturday I train 2 times, so it is 6 hours.

Do you really enjoy what you do? yes, even though I complain sometimes, it is really fun and addictive to play volleyball, and also you can stay fit 7. What´s your motivation to keep going? Just the love for it, and to be part of the process of becoming part of the state’s selection. 8. Is it difficult to stay training than going to parties? Yes, this semester I haven’t got a chance to assist to a party because I went every weekend to Tijuana, and you can’t miss it or you will be cut off the team. 9. What´s the best memory that you have since you start playing? The most recent one, is this ”Copa Baja” tournament in which Dominican republic came and we (baja) won 2nd place in the cup, we defeated Dominican republic, though not in the finals, Mexico, and other Baja’s teams. 10.

college? Probably, but not so many times a week, it will become more of a hobby, I want to learn new things, like dance classes, or learn how to speak French, things like that.

Well when I know about a important race in Mexicali I go, but the most important competences are the Olympic Stage in Baja California and the Olympic Regional in one city of the region one of Mexico. I went to two Olympics stages and one Olympic Regional in Mazatlan. I don’t remember in how many competencies I have participated. What inspires you to keep running?

I like Olympic Games very much, but I like also the FIFA World Cup. How much time do you do in 100mts? Well I don’t run that meters, because my body doesn’t have the force to do it, I look for run another meters and I found the 3000m steeplechase, and that race is not a sprinter race, it’s a middle distance race. But my best personal record in the 100mts is 11’47 and I ran it in October 2011. Are you in the BC selection? Yes I am. How do you feel when you lose? Bad, my people say to me, you participated, but I think when this happen is because I didn’t prepare myself. How many hours do you dedicate to training? Two and half hour, and maybe 3 hours What can you tell to people to enter this sport? I tell them to like this sport and look to be a better person with their records, not to surface when you are training.

It is a sport which requires too




dedication, and that is called the sport "burst" and the practitioner must have some qualities that we all have, for example, speed, agility, good fitness, etc., This to give better performance and highlight the practice, but anyone can practice with or without these qualities. Besides








profession or career, as there are links or circuits in which remuneration is received or payment for services rendered to the team which is part of the player. To reach these links or circuits begins on a smaller scale such as in schools participating with teams







achievements, where to acquire a grant is paying for the effort and good work done. This arouses interest towards the sport as training aid as a person acquiring profits and helping to have a secured future either in sport or in a profession after graduation. In particular I was interested in the sport even more when I read a book considered one of the

best players in the world where a phrase came to me thinking: "I can accept failure, but I cannot accept not trying again." Michael Jordan This phrase spoken by many considered the best in the history of basketball. I








perseverance, of a hard fought not only in sports if not life itself. And that's what I talk about in this essay as basketball for many is just a game played by amazing athletes but for others maybe it is life itself, a lifestyle, a job. This sport for many that a sport is to look for other livelihood strive every day to be better at work to limit athletes who put their physical and mental At the word basketball first thought is in a meeting with friends, family, ten men fighting over a ball sweat shirt to win a game and thus a

better position in the table that is how many see it. But we've been thinking that there behind these men

winning a game? Maybe not what you thought but today give a point of view of him why? In basketball and in life is perfect human failure no perfect human passion perfect player but this is partly what do feel that perhaps the perfect ones










impossible for so many is a sport. For most of these athletes is not only going to sweat, run or chase a ball but also is to achieve a dream after many failures to receive a second

chance in the next game to get back the trust of his teammates to take the last shot in a tight game. For a player that is worth much because behind it there

sacrifice a


member not to see family for long periods, to test the feelings. I personally have lived, failing again and again, to fail to reach the point where wondering what am I doing here? Do you really worth that much effort? So much time spent? And now I realize that if it helped me be a better person as a human being to be angry, the stress out, fined an outlet in basketball







solution, but if a balance that helps me thinks better. This same sport must’ve learned values, camaraderie, respect, discipline, I have learned that no one is indispensable, all worth the same to gain but everything to lose by that is when you learn is when you give meaning to fail in to improve to be a better person, a better human

being. Years and years of practice hours put into training has paid off when I found out what I can do, to endure, that not for fear of failing stop trying.

Hey Arnold

Being was







everyone’s life,



me it was. I remember how exciting was to get home and watch TV. My favorite channel





was the best cartoon of all times Hey Arnold. To me that cartoon was all, I

would count the hours to get home and








were good just because of Hey Arnold. It was a show that narrated the story about a







that was orphan and lived with their grandparents in a rental building. I loved to see the adventures he had with his friends and we can’t forget the little girl named Olga that was obsessed with Arnold but in real life was very mean, thinking







kind of creepy for having a sanctuary for him at her closet. The most exciting episode was the one that told the story why






there were explorers and had to go to their











can mom

told her before they go, they said that they will come back and take him to the park to be a good boy. In that episode I cried like a baby and if I still watch that episode now days I can cry again. Cartoons right now are very weird; they don’t






don’t show the innocence. My childhood was very good and I identify with the cartoon







grown up I can see that the cartoon Hey Arnold




entertaining at the same time.


By: Priscila Gonzalez Ortiz How to… In order to wash your car and leave it shiny, you must follow some steps to get it. First of all we should wet the car with water to remove dirt. After that, we put some water in a bucket and we add some special liquid to wash cars. When we have the mixture done, we´ll have to clean up the car with a cloth over the surface of the carriage. When we finished, we´ll get the car dry with some dried clothes. Since we did this, we can go into the vehicle. It is important to start from the top, so that all the garbage that is on the seats of the car hits the ground and it will be sucked. When we finish, we turn to the dash area with a damp cloth, stir the dust. Finally put some flavor in the car to take a car completely clean.

It starts in the family with the parent’s attitudes, as a form of protection to the children, by taking the house decisions all by their selves, without the need of bothering in organizing and distributing the chores, which creates a conflictive situation that creates dependence between the members. This phenomenon is made by a common problem, simple to detect but hard to recognize, and it affects a big number of families around our environment without even noticing this. The objective of this conduct is to educate the minor members of the family under a severe discipline regime, in which the decisions are strictly made by the parents. As a result, the young man hasn’t got any chance to invoke to such firmness, obligating to always do what their parents want him to do and respect this resolution without complaining. Up to this moment there are no quantitative studies about this case, which is one of the reasons that motivates the development of this investigation, because it

is really a very important thing to search, thanks to the noticeable consequences on the actual youth, especially on the decisions that they are making for their future; the attitudes that they practice up to the moment they stand in front of a problematic situation with a certain difficulty and their insufficient experience to live in an independent way. This posture that generations take, make them become on incompetent elements for the productive society in which we live, preventing them to get better opportunities, jobs and life quality. Knowing the symptoms of this problematic, it’s easy to detect when the paternalism has become an inconvenient situation that hast to be mended as soon as possible. In these cases, it’s necessary to make the parents understand that their sons have grown up enough to take responsibility of their actions and form their compromises out of their regime. There are many ways to mend this, among this, the communication between family members, with everyone presenting their points of view, and with the vision of leading up to a clear resolution, with the approbation of each subject involved in this. This can be done on most of the cases if it’s performed in a very mature way. With this investigation, we’re going to show to the student community that belongs to high school and college in Mexicali, the different ways, in which this problem can be recognized, for them to take conscience about this situation, analyze how this can affect their lives in a personal, cultural, economic and educational way. They will get a general vision of this problematic and gradually will become independent human beings with the capacity of knowing their life goals.

Hypothesis Hi: Young people that live under a paternalistic education suffer visible consequences of an educational, economic and cultural character. Ha: There are now young people that consider living under paternalism and so there non educational, economic or cultural consequences. H1: Young people that consider themselves living under paternalism don’t know how to cook, or wash their clothes. H2: Young people that believe they live under paternalism have their religious views imposed by their parents. H3: Young people that consider themselves living under paternalism have chosen a career that their parents think it’s right for them to study. H4: More of the 30% of the High School and College student’s respondents feel they live under an paternalistic education regime. H5: There is a higher percentage of women living under paternalism than men.

Trip to Ensenada

Being in the Rondalla de CETYS Universidad has been a really amazing experience since I’ve became a member of it, because I’ve learned to appreciate a totally different genre of music to the ones I usually play or hear more often; I’ve known a lot of people t which have come to be very good friends of mine over the years, and I’ve earned a lot of knowledge on the live performance scene. And you would ask me where did I learned about playing live, well that is a story I like to tell a lot to my friends and the people around me who want to hear stories about courage and perseverance. Last year, in summer of 2012, the Rondalla de CETYS Universidad went on a trip to Ensenada, Baja

California, in search of the title of the best rondalla in the region, so we practiced for a long time to win this prize. Our playlist was made with songs like Regálame esta noche by Alejandro Fernández, Si te vas by Trío Los Panchos, Cuando tú no estás by Raphael, Esclavo y amo and many more. We knew we weren’t the best in town, for there is a lot of this type of groups, and they are constantly trying to outstand among the rest, for only a certain number of remarkable rondallas are the ones that people know, because of their trajectory and high prestige. Besides this fact, we wanted to give it a shot just to earn experience and have a good time as a team, which we did very well. When we arrived to the place, we talked with other rondallas about stories of our presentations in Mexicali. This was certainly our first gig out of town, so we were very excited about this and people around told us that we looked a little bit scared, but we weren’t. It was very tired for us to travel from Mexicali to Tecate, where we played at the UABC music stage. We

did our job well on stage, and after that we went to a little dinner a rondalla committee organized for all the participants.

At 2:00 am o’ clock we took the road straight to Ensenada. We were all sleepy on the bus, but also having a lot of fun. We arrived to the hotel at 3:30 am, and fell asleep quickly, for there was a lot of work to do the next day at Centro Estatal de las Artes. We got very excited about playing in this big music festival in Ensenada, so we saved up all of our energy for it, and took care of ourselves and our throats in order to sing louder and better than the other bands, because we wanted to win a prize and get the public recognition, so we can outstand. Once on stage, we were the first ones to play, and that got us really nervous, but we had a little talk before starting the show, so we could clear our thoughts, leave all our regrets and fears, and express our feelings on our performance.

We did our best and we knew it, because we could see on the people’s faces that they liked not only our music, but our attitude, charisma, abilities, and the skills we showed to them up there when we were playing. When the contest finished, we didn’t win any prize, but what we did earn was a lot of experience, good memories to tell to our friends, and plenty of fun by having a weekend in Ensenada with our friends trying to achieve a common goal. But that’s not the end. The rest of time we spend in Ensenada was really fun, because our hotel was filled with all the Mexicali Rondallas, so anybody could tell that music ruled the place that night. All the members of the other rondallas and us went at night to take a walk all over the most popular places in Ensenada, so we get to know each other and spend a lot of quality time all together as musicians and friends we were about to be. It was such a good experience being there, and we always ask our instructor to take us to that place again.

By, Sara GutiÊrrez Flores 2nd World War inventions This was the most dramatic event of all times because there were a lot of deads, on the other hand, there were a lot of science discoveries. Hittler was the best leader of all times, he knew how to control people with only giving some speeches, than when he had a lot of people, he built an army to controlled Germany, he had a lot of rage to the jews, he killed them and burned their houses and jobs. What he was doing was experiment to help society in the science ambit, he approves a lot of experiments that his scientist invented. There were places called ghettos, where the Jews leaved in the worst conditions of all the world, they didn’t eat, didn’t have water and they were very thin like a skeleton. In addition to Nazi concentration camps, the Soviet gulags led to the death of citizens of occupied countries such as Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, as well as German prisoners of war and even Soviet citizens who had been or were thought to be supporters of the Nazis. Sixty percent of Soviet POWs of the Germans died during the war. Richard Overy gives the number of 5.7 million Soviet POWs. Of those, 57 percent died or were killed, a total of 3.6 million. Soviet ex-POWs and repatriated civilians were treated with great suspicion as potential Nazi collaborators, and some of them were sent to the Gulag upon being checked by the NKVD. What made the difference from first world war to second world war was that here they started using gas as the main energy source, because of this discoverment a lot of new inventions borned, they created new guns, new cars, and they created the aircraft as atomic bombs, the also invented planes with submachine guns to finish with all the soldiers that were trying to attack the front.
