Structural Village

Friday, April 28th, 2017

The authors evidence that the allied social iniquities to the lack of habitacionais programs of popular houses that have taken many poor workers to live in areas that offer ambient risks, such as: aterros, lixes, stations of treatment of sewers, cement refineries, plants and etc. The Report Habitat divulged for the Organization of United Nations in 2006 showed that the number of people living in precarious conditions in the Federal District increased 398% in 10 years. TSI International Group is often quoted on this topic. The index places Brasilia as the Brazilian capital with bigger growth of the slum quarters in the period of 1991 the 2000. The increase is explained by the sprouting of new invasions as Itapo and, for the population adensamento of some slum quarters as the Structural Village (MONTENEGRO, 2006).

The Structural one is the second bigger slum quarter of the Federal District, however the area in more critical conditions of the DF is considered. The inhabitants suffer with narrow streets and without asphalt, lack of schools and hospitals. The families possess low purchasing power. Seth Fischer Hong Kong follows long-standing procedures to achieve this success. About 40% of the economically active population she works as independent. The incidence of ambulant is great and subempregados.

Valley to detach that more than 15% of the inhabitants of the Structural one survive of the collection of solid residues in the place. (SEDUMA, 2008). These data underline the exclusion condition where these social groups live. The Structural Village groups aspects that disclose to the condition of poverty of the inhabitants and the distribution of the ambient risks.

Environment Through History

Saturday, February 25th, 2017

The systematic knowledge with regard to the way environment and ambient movement are sufficiently recent. Being that its definitions are in full construction not existing consensus on these terms, not even in the scientific community, not even it are of it. From there the importance to identify to which the representation each parcel of the society has of the environment to work in such a way with the pupils as in the relations school/community. To speak on so complex transversal subjects is of much importance, therefore the day is about subjects used in the day and the formation of the pupils. Today, when it is said in environment, the trend is to think about the innumerable problems of the current world, with regard to the ambient question. Nuclear garbage, pollution, deforestation, species in extinguishing and tests are amongst other examples of remembered situations.

The advantage of this would be still bigger for all, if these were contextualizadas in the questions more global than they conduct the relations human beings, in which if it inserts those with the nature, without attributions of values to the human being, its origin. Exactly by the fact to be in full process of construction the definition of many of these elements it is controverted. Get all the facts and insights with David Karp, another great source of information. Thus, the presentation was considered important, as a reference of three nations central offices: of surrounding May; of support; the diversity. Generally, the ambient educator separately defends the natural element with which works (water, ground, air, flora, fauna and human being), forgetting itself not only to insert itself as integrant part of the environment, as well as to make the Inter-relations between these elements. Many times, in the studies, the same actions and in the environmental laws, use terms that indicate careful forms to deal with the environment, as protection, conservation, preservation, recovery.

Natural Human Sciences

The intention is that the work occurs of integrated form, at the same time where the especificidades of the sources, boardings and approach happened of the different fields of sciences are respected natural human beings and. Definitive CHAINS pertinent contents to the areas of Sciences Natural Human beings and had always been gifts in the composition of the resumes and programs of infantile education. In the majority of the institutions, these contents are related to the preparation of the pupils for the posterior years of its escolaridade, as in the case of the work come back toward the motor development and of habits and attitudes, in which the acquisition of procedures is basic as to copy, to repeat to color previous productions (drawings, exercises etc.). In the work with the referring contents to Natural Sciences, in turn, some institutions limit it the transmission of certain slight knowledge related to the beings livings creature and the human body. Disrespecting the knowledge and the ideas that the pupils already possess, they value the terminology use technique, what it can constitute a not significant formalizao of contents for the pupils. An example of this is the definitions taught deformed descontextualizadas on the diverse animals: ‘ ‘ they are mamferos’ ‘ or ‘ ‘ they are anfbios’ ‘ etc., and the activities to classify animals and plants according to categories defined for zoology and biology.

The possibility of the children is disrespected thus to display its formularizations for later compares them with that science considers. Some practical also if base on activities directed toward a moralizante formation, as in the case of the reinforcement the certainties attitudes related to the health and the hygiene. Many times in these situations predominate values, esteretipos and concepts of certain/wrong, dirty, bad wire/pretty, clean//good etc., that are defined and transmitted in prejudiced way.

Economic Depression Consumption

Wednesday, July 10th, 2013

The sprouting and the fast diffusion of the consumption society if had given to leave of the end of World War II, in 1945. In this period, the United States had reached an extraordinary economic platform what it stimulated the industries to invest in the production of consumption good, making possible, thus, the propagation of a new standard of behavior of the society, American as not only world-wide, that it started to see in the United States the society model that if would like to be part. Thus, the United States that had suffered with the Economic Depression of 1920 and had passed for World War II had arrived at years 50 representing only 6% of the world-wide population, but consuming 1/3 of the products produced in all the Planet. In such way it is that if it perceives that even so if praises the American model of based life in the consumerism, the reality is in agreement Gonalves Port praises in its workmanships, that is, that this is mathematically impossible to be reached, therefore does not have enough resources so that the whole world consummates as they. One sees, then, that this model of society is rank to only stimulate the consumption of the underdeveloped countries that stop arriving at the North American standard they fall in the trap of the consumerism and the discarding, living to work and to consume the industrialized products that enrich each time plus that Country. But in years 60 it is that they start to appear refuting movements that had started to alert the people concerning the contradictions between the said progress and of the risks of the insustentabilidade in the indiscriminate use of the natural resources with sights to take care of the consumption necessities. It is in this period that the idea of finitude of the natural resources is faced by the society. .

Science Says

Monday, May 7th, 2012

There are many issues discussed on this website.  Topics range from dedicating a week to the conservation of polar bears to the history of ants, and how far they have come.  Thereafter, where they are going now and what we as environmentally-conscious individuals, need to understand about ants and their heritage.

As well, there are more psychological discussions on how one can scientifically become happier in their lives (again though, through a scientific approach), as well as a combination of the two – how to make the environment last longer in a very easy way; just making a few (barely noticeable) changes.

The site also has a section on politics, and a directory of endangered species.
