Que nadie les arrebate sus sueños y su imaginación, sus anhelos y sus ilusiones…

Nunca permitan que les desbaraten sus sueños y sus ilusiones. Impidan que les roben sus locuras y sus anhelos. Cuiden su imaginación y su creatividad, sus motivos y sus fantasías. Y que nadie apague sus alegrías y sus sonrisas. Cada día, a pesar de que a veces haya momentos de tempestades, disfrútenlo plenamente, contentos, lejos de aquellos que, por vibrar a escalas tan bajas, provocan dolores, tristezas, males y naufragios. Eviten que arranquen la inocencia a los niños y las ilusiones a los adolescentes y a los jóvenes. La pretensión local y global es robarles sentimientos, ideales, fantasías, imaginación, sueños, ilusiones y anhelos con el propósito de vaciarlos y transformarlos en marionetas insensibles y ciegas, en títeres enajenados y autómatas, en muñecos procesados en serie. Sean creativos y originales. Vivan demasiado y sueñen mucho. Si alguna vez desarticulan a…

Day 41/67, Five Month GED: Cycles, and, “Wh” Questions

Inspiring Critical Thinking and Community via Books, Lessons, and Story

      Adulting often requires Public Library resources to answer important questions about issues ranging from the life cycle of an organism, as in today’s science reading, to election cycles. 

schistosomiasis_life_cycle

Or resources like the old “Who’s Who…” books that recorded facts like the number of presidents who have been impeached, and why. 

     Questions like what, why, where, when, and of course, how, are key to understanding all sides of any issue, from biology to sociology, and our daily lives.  Librarians remind us to ask all of these questions, and help us dig for resources to find answers (or more productive questions!)

Com mudanças climáticas, tubarões se afastam de áreas de proteção no Atlântico

Mágica Mistura✨

O ano de 2021 marcou um novo recorde: pelo sexto ano consecutivo, as temperaturas dos oceanosaumentaram. Esse fenômeno é um dos protagonistas quando se fala em mudanças climáticas e tem uma porção de consequências preocupantes. Uma das principais é o aumento do nível dos oceanos, que acontece a partir da expansão térmica: à medida que as águas absorvem calor, elas aumentam de volume.

O aquecimento também pode levar ao derretimento mais acelerado das geleiras e a mudanças nos padrões de ventos e chuvas ao redor do planeta (que podem intensificar furacões e tufões), além de dificultar a absorção de carbono da atmosfera pelos oceanos.

Mas não para por aí. As mudanças de temperatura podem alterar diretamente o comportamento de espécies marinhas e, assim, bagunçar ecossistemas ao redor do mundo. Um exemplo recém-descoberto é o caso dos tubarões-tigre (Galeocerdo cuvier) no Oceano Atlântico – próximo à costa…
