A CRUISE SUNK IN COSTA CONCORDIA There are some victims in Concordia's disaster and the students are worried. The Costa Concordia cruise ship ran aground off the west coast of Italy, at Giglio Island on Friday. Italian cave-rescue divers are painstakingly checking thousands of debris-filled cabins on the Italian liner Monday for more than 20 people still unaccounted for out of the 4,200 who were on board.

Worsening weather and heavy seas earlier made the wreck slip on the rocky underwater slope where it is lodged off the island of Giglio and rescue teams were evacuated. But they returned to work after several hours. Eleven bodies have been found so far. The divers wear wetsuits reinforced with Kevlar — the same material used to make bullet-proof

vests — and have a guide line to open water, just as they do when exploring caves.

Due to the fact that many students are going on a trip to Italy next month, they are worried about it as we are going to Italy on boat. Javier Liébana Rosas Alejandro Alcalá Ortega

EARTHQUAKES Every year there are hundreds of earthquakes in the world. Some of them are very slight, others have material damages, and others even provoke thousands of deaths, such as the earthquake that last year took place in Japan. This made us think a lot about it and we decided to write this article so that people know how to react if there is an eartquake near them.

What is an earthquake? It is a tremor on land caused by the colission of the tectonic plates. It is measured with the Ritcher scale. To know more about earthquakes we are going to raise some questions:

scale liberate? The energy it liberates is compared with 25 000 atomic bombs. What can you do if there is a earthquake near you? - If the tremor is slight,don't panic, it will finish quickly - If the tremor is bigger, look for a heavy structure and stay under it - If you are inside a building, don't go out, because it will be more dangerous - If you are outside look for an open place and move away from glasses, buildings or electricity cables. Conclusion There are some ways to predict eartquakes but they aren't very reliable, so the only thing you can do is to react with the advises just given before.

1.Has the number of earthquakes been constant along the history? It has been constant but the number of deaths has been raising because there are more building.Nowadays it is more dangerous because they can fall down. 2.Which are the consequences of the earthquakes?Are they all the same in all the countries? The earthquakes have economic consequences: they destroy a lot of buildings and they also have social consequences: a lot of people die because of them when the eartquake is very strong. Earthquakes aren't the same in all the countries because it depends on the development of each country.

Material consequences of an earthquake.

3.Are there any earthquakes in others planets? Yes, In Mars there was an intense earthquake and we know that in the Moon there are lots of them but with slight intensity. Marta Peinado Santiago

CONOCIÉNDONOS Hola a todos. Somos Laura y Cristina de 1º BC A. Queríamos presentaros nuestra sección para esta nueva y revolucionaria revista que estamos realizando en nuestra clase. “Conociéndonos” es una sección dedicada a saber un poco más del entorno de éste nuestro centro. Esta revista es bilingüe, por lo que algunas de las entrevistas también lo serán. Con esto queremos acercaros un poco más a aspectos que no son tan cercanos y familiares. Para empezar, lo haremos con una profesora que ha aportado mucho a este instituto durante un largo período de tiempo. Se trata de Doña Gloria Viedma, profesora de Historia y una gran persona. Entrevistadora s- Buenos días profesora, le agradecemos mucho que haya accedido a nuestra entrevista, y queríamos comenzar preguntándole, ¿qué fue lo que le impulsó a estudiar esa carrera? Profesora- Me impulsó que estaba estudiando en Sevilla y me sentí atraída por esa carrera, porque siempre me ha gustado conocer sobre las civilizaciones antiguas. E- ¿Qué destacaría de su trabajo? P- Destacaría sobre todo la relación con los alumnos ya que al tener contacto con la gente joven hace que tú también te sientas más joven y que estemos más de acuerdo con la realidad en la que vives. E- Como profesora de historia que es, ¿en qué época histórica le gustaría vivir? P- Me gustaría vivir en la que vivimos pero tengo que decir que he vivido en una época muy buena que ha sido la etapa de la transición política; la muerte de Franco y la consolidación

de la democracia en España es algo que debería haber vivido todo el mundo para que después se pueda valorar la democracia. E- Si no fuera profesora, ¿a qué se dedicaría? P- Pues me hubiera gustado ser senadora, porque los senadores tienen un trabajo complementario del Congreso, viven bien. También es verdad que ahora me hubiera gustado ser parlamentaria europea porque me gusta mucho viajar. E- ¿Qué es lo que más destacaría de sus compañeros? P- De ellos creo que el ambiente de compañerismo que hay y sobre todo la amistad que tengo con algunas compañeras; la verdad es que es una relación muy especial. E- ¿Qué países ha visitado? P- Todos los años hago por lo menos dos viajes al extranjero. Conozco Europa casi entera. Este verano he estado en Polonia, República Checa, Londres, París y Nueva York, que es la ciudad que más me ha impactado. También he estado en Egipto que también me ha impresionado mucho aunque para vivir yo me quedaría en España porque la calidad de vida es mucho mejor. Además también he estado en Noruega, que es el país que más ha impresionado a mi marido. E- ¿Qué culturas antiguas son las que más le gustan? P- La egipcia y la griega. La griega por la trascendencia que ha tenido hasta nuestros días. Las pirámides son preciosas e importantísimas pero no han tenido la trascendencia que ha tenido el arte y la cultura griega.

E- ¿Qué proyectos le gustaría emprender en un futuro?

E- ¿Le resulta fácil compaginar la vida personal con la laboral?

P- Como voy a cambiar de vida pronto, pienso que voy a vivir tranquila y a viajar un poco más, visitar a mi hijo siempre que pueda y creo que también me voy a apuntar a un gimnasio. E- Profesora, muchísimas gracias por haber colaborado con nosotras en este proyecto, esperamos que le haya gustado y que le vaya bien en el futuro.

P- Si dijera que no, creo que sería injusto porque aunque a veces cuesta trabajo, yo me considero un privilegiado porque yo trabajo por las mañanas y por la tarde tengo que preparar clases y más cosas, pero cuando pienso en otra gente que tiene trabajos de muchas más horas y un horario más difícil, pienso que soy un privilegiado.

Hola otra vez, esperamos que disfrutarais de la entrega anterior. Volvemos de nuevo, pero ahora es el turno de Don Cristóbal Beltrán, profesor de Lengua y Literatura, secretario de nuestro centro docente y además alguien a quien tenemos mucho aprecio.

E- ¿En qué época del año tiene usted más trabajo? P- Para el cargo que yo estoy desempeñando ahora de administrativo, de secretario, los meses más difíciles son septiembre y junio por el tema de matrículas, evaluaciones, exámenes y demás.

Entrevistadoras- Hola don Cristóbal, estamos aquí para hacerle una entrevista como secretario de este centro para nuestra revista BiliNews, lo primero que queremos preguntarle es qué diría usted que es lo mejor de su trabajo. Profesor- Pues creo que lo mejor es el contacto con los alumnos, sin duda es lo más interesante.

E- ¿Qué es lo que usted mejoraría del centro? P- Principalmente la convivencia entre los alumnos, entre profesores y alumnos incluso entre profesores y profesores. Es verdad que en este centro hay pocos problemas, pero la gente se queja mucho y hay bastantes destrozos. E- ¿Cuáles son sus aficiones?

E- ¿Y lo peor? P- Lo peor también es eso porque vosotros los alumnos siempre tenéis la misma edad, aunque vayáis cumpliendo años, al siguiente curso vendrá una promoción que tendrá otra vez los mismos y no envejecéis como alumnado, sin embargo, los profesores vamos cumpliendo años y sí, vamos envejeciendo. Por otra parte, daros una educación y unas normas de comportamiento también cansa mucho. Por esto, el contacto con los alumnos es lo mejor y lo peor.

P- Me gusta mucho montar en bicicleta, antes montaba más, pero aun así cuando tengo un rato libre, la cojo y me voy por aquí cerquita. Por otra parte, tengo las aficiones normales, leer... aunque debo decir que no leo mucho, sobre todo suelo leer los clásicos, pero la literatura moderna no la leo, me da pereza. E- Cuando era pequeño, ¿qué quería ser de mayor? P- Yo quería ser conductor de camiones, como mi padre. Pero claro, él no me dejaba, mis

padres me iban orientando, querían algo más para mí, que yo fuera más que ellos y veían que estudiando iba a llegar a más y me orientaron hacia el estudio. Después de eso, vi que los estudios se me daban muy mal, me gustaría saber matemáticas, pero lo que mejor se me daban eran las letras. A pesar de eso, todavía me gustaría ser camionero.

E- Bueno don Cristóbal, ya hemos terminado la entrevista. Muchas gracias por atendernos y responder a estas preguntas.
