Living Organisms Activity

Our Biology teacher, Male Ravagnan gave my group and I an activity to do on our blogs. The girls I had to work with were: Delfina Miy Uranga and Rocio Hartmann. This was our work.

1) Construct a table to compare the characteristic features of animals, plants, fungi, protoctists and prokaryotes: number of cells, differences in the cell structure, nutrition. You can upload the activity as a PDF file on your blog.

2) External Features.

The Manchurian Crisis.

In History class our teacher Lenny asked us to watch a video and answer the questions about the Manchurian crisis since we are studying the Second World War. Here are my answers.

  1. How does the video open? What might the connection between the League and the opening scenes in Poland be?
  2. What problems did Japan face? (Mention ALL of them)
  3. What was the role of the army in Japan?
  4. What did army leaders believe Japan needed?
  5. What was the value of Manchuria?
  6. What happened at Mudken?
  7. What did the League do about it?
  8. What was Japan’s reaction to the decision of the League?

Whats written in Bold are the things I added based on the correction we made in class.

1) The video opens with some images of Poland at that time, for me the connection between them is that The League caused Poland to look that way, broken buildings, etc. How they failed to maintain stability and peace. The images also represent the start of the war, Hitlers SS in Poland. It was the last attack before the war, Britain realizes that the Policy of Appeasement was a mistake, it also symbolizes the union between Russia and Germany.

2) Japan had suffered not only from the Wall Street Crash but also from the Depression in USA. The population was booming, and the government needed to feed the population. Japan was isolated but then had to open up in order to get coal and oil since they had no natural materials to explode, they relied on trade. They also suffered from unemployment and many people didn’t have good business with agriculture. They didn’t have natural resources because Japan was very rocky.

3)The army controlled the education system and the administrations of martial arts was compulsory from a very young age. The army would guarantee power and intimidation, it was more powerful than the politicians 

4)Army leaders believed Japan needed territorial gain in eastern asia, it would benefit the great empire of Japan. They woud also expand and have more land for population and to cultivate.

5)The value of Manchuria was: resources, more land for population and also, people would gain jobs and unemployment would decrease.

6) They responded attacking nearby China. There was a railway that belonged to Japan. Since they needed an excuse to attack Mudken (a place in china) they caused the explosions themselves so they could blame China.

7)The League took 1 year to act and sent few soldiers when  they did. Its completely detached from its responsibilities. They sent Leighton to write the report. The result was that Japan was guilty and they had to leave Manchuria but they didn’t want to, and The League was afraid that Japan would join Germany.

8)Japan left The League and stayed with Manchuria when The league said that Manchuria was to become independent from both Japan and China but since they disagreed, she left.

¿Light, zero o reducido en grasas?

En la clase de Físico química, nuestra profesora Susy nos pidió que buscáramos un articulo en INTI/sabercomo, lo leyéramos y miráramos  el video y después subamos un resumen a nuestros blogs. Este es mi resumen:

La OMS (organización mundial de la salud) advirtió que aumentó el consumo de grasas y azucares y bajo el consumo de fibras. Lo cual causó enfermedades crónicas (incurables) no transmisibles como la diabetes, la hiper tensión y el cáncer. Estas enfermedades fueron el 60% responsables por las 56 millones de muertes anuales y el 47% responsables de gente que vivirá por siempre enferma. A causa de esto, en el 2004 se aprobó la “Estrategia Mundial de la Organización Mundial de la Salud sobre Régimen Alimentario, Actividad Física y Salud”. Esta organización alienta a los Gobiernos a promover la educación, la comunicación y a ayudar a las personas para que tomen decisiones mas conscientes sobre su alimentación.

En el 2006 , se hizo obligatorio que todos los productos envasados que se comercialicen dentro de la Argentina tengan la información nutritiva en la etiqueta.

Recientemente Argentina agrego una nueva regla al MERCOSUR (Mercado Común Del Sur), la cual obligo a cualquier fabricante que quiera poner la información nutritiva en los productos y que si quería decir que es bajo en grasas, bajo en sodio o alto en fibras tenia que cumplir con ciertas reglas.

Según la ultima encuesta en el 2009, hay un 18% de obesos y un 35% habitantes de sobrepeso, lo cual suma mas del 50%. Mas de la mitad de la población sufre problemas de sobrepeso y esa cifra sigue aumentando.

Hay dos opciones para realizar una declaración nutricional  complementaria:

1) informar el valor absoluto del nutriente

2) Por comparación con el alimento de referencia.

Por ejemplo: “si un alimento dice que es reducido en grasas, tiene una reducción del 25% respecto del tradicional. En cambio, si un alimento declara ser ´bajo en grasas´, esto significa que no contiene más de tres gramos de grasa por porción”
