China Swimming

The swimmer ended the test with a time of just over two hours. The other Spanish, Margarita Dominguez, finished at number 23. The winner of Shanghai was the British Keri Anne Michelle Payne. The Spanish swimmer Erika Villaecija, who on Tuesday qualified for the Olympic Games of London 2012 after being 10th in the 10 kilometres open water of Shanghai swimming world, he said after his achievement that has fulfilled the first of his goals for this Championship. Test the British won Keri Anne Michelle Payne. This first step for me is very important, because the truth is that I’ve been (only) a year competing in this discipline and get the 10th square, which gives me the direct classification for London, is very important, he said. It is a new test for me, he recalled. I bet this world for two things (swimming pool and open water), so objective fulfilled, and now am eager, because I’ve been highly reinforced for pool testing. Villaecija It is the first Spanish athlete who enrolls in a same world swimming pool, in particular two competitions for both proof of open water the 800 meters, which has more elaborate, and the 1,500 meters. 800 Pose the main test for her in Shanghai, which has prepared more, and after the good result in the artificial Beach in the shanghainesa of Jinshan town, said he was very animated, both physically and mentally. IAB has much experience in this field. A challenge for the East World Championship swimmer is a challenge for me, and the truth is that moment has begun with good standing, which is the important thing, he said. For the Spanish test was a bit rare, explained, so it had to fix it with a final energy boost. At the last buoy, which I had thousand meters, he would like the (number) 20 or 21, but I’ve got the head and I started to tighten, I felt strong and have reached the 10, or that it gives me a good feeling in the face of the 800 and 1,500, which are more rapid tests, He reiterated. I’ve had a good finish, or that I am well trained, he said. In the race I felt a little rare, said, because at the beginning I have placed me in front, then I arrived quite well, although I think I need a bit of experience, the does not overwhelm me with people and that, because we are many people, but well, in London I think we are only 25 swimmers and we will be a lot calmer. Villaecija passing through Jinshan, takes a lesson learned: that whatever pass at any time during the race you have to be focused, knowing what is missing, what is left you, and that if you want to achieve something, no throwing in the towel never, at any time. dly add to your understanding. Today what most struggled you to overcome has been the intense heat damp of the eastern coast of china and the refreshment, because I’m not used to make them, but now I know how they work. Lose the fear of somehow your achievement has served you to lose the fear that he had to compete with 56 swimmers at a time and to receive a sharp blow to the It slowdown. The race was the largest artificial beach of China, with 680 square meters purified water, enclosed by dykes of two meters high separating it from dirty brown waters of the East China Sea, saturated over hundreds of miles of coastline from sediments of the nearby mouth of the Yangtze River. About the water of this artificial, constructed in 2006 and surrounded by 12,000 tons of sand, non-existent in the shanghainesas coasts and beach brought from the Chinese tropical island of Hainan, Villaecija commented that you dirty enough, although it may not seem so by the blue thing that seems compared to the rest of the sea Brown. The water is dirty, is how Sandy, as muddy, although it is not noticeable, not see anything when you go swimming, is as Brown, but that already does not matter, he said, you have to go forward, to look at the buoys and is already. We have been lucky because it is not thriving, that to me also favors me because it looks more like a swimming pool conditions, commented.

Tanzania Process

It’s a project of engineers without borders, which expect to introduce this technique next year in Tanzania. In addition to coal, the process produces biogas. Students of the Technical University of Berlin have developed a process to produce biological carbon from human feces, it announced Monday the Organization engineers without borders. This technique will be put into practice between July and September in a greenhouse in Berlin and if successful will be introduced year coming in Tanzania, said Volker Eiselein, spokesman for the organization. Coal serves as fertiliser for crops and because of its porous properties is suitable as water tank and to protect from erosion, said. Thanks to this new technique, feces may be purified of hygienically and charred at high temperatures. Parallel to the process of carbonization occurs biogas plant also designed by students. The remaining substrates will be mixed with purified droppings to be processed, explained Eiselein, who pointed out that the heat needed for this process will be extracted from the biogas plant. Office in Berlin of engineers without borders, which since 2006 focuses his work on the Tanzanian’s Kaguera region, has carried out several projects of water and energy in collaboration with the Organization Mavuno Project.

Young people who have been approved in recent weeks selectivity must choose career. And they will find a little more difficult to get into which you want to, because the competition is greater mainly due to the increase of students with a small reduction of the offer. If during the 2009-2010 could access with a grade point average 5 approximately 60% of races offered face-to-face public campuses, this 2010-2011 course that is about to end the approved just gave access to little more than 42%, i.e. more than 890 qualifications (counting each race at each faculty). If the criterion we relaxed a bit and get into that bag races which are 5 and 5.1, the figure grows up to 940 titles, 45%. On the opposite side, in more than 130 titles it took out more than one 10 to enter. Source of the news:: choose career, harder by selectivity and the rise in students

New Technologies

Experts warn that Spanish universities serve not enough technological progress in relation to medicine. They advocate to modify the current system so that medical schools teach a formation capable of meeting the challenges of today and, above all, of the future. The doctor away Pazos, of the University of A Coruna, Coordinator of a Conference on Biomedical Informatics and personalized medicine that have been held in the corunesa town of Padron, warned of poor training in new technologies of the students of medicine in Spain. In Spain is being not offered adequate training to physicians to meet the needs of the practice of medicine today and of the future, Pazos said in a telephone interview coinciding with the celebration of the 4th International Symposium on Biomedical Informatics in Europe.That meeting was attended by experts from various European countries, mainly in the Iberian Peninsula, and United States. Any doctor spends hours and hours at the computer, said Pazos, who lamented that the Spanish universities not addressed sufficiently technological progress and the challenges posed to the future exercise of that profession. Some studies underline the inadequate technological formation of students in medicine and the important gaps in knowledge of genomics, legislation or ethics, said Pazos, Professor of computer science and Artificial Intelligence and director of the Department of information technologies and the communication of the University of A Coruna.The challenges of today and of the future stressed that it is necessary to sensitize public opinion and the authorities change the current system so that medical schools teach a formation capable of meeting the challenges of today and, above all, of the future. He stressed that some large U.S. universities have established alliances, among which highlighted the of Harvard with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, both based in the city of Boston.

Commercial results therefore advocated giving a shift towards this new medicine of the future that requires preparation more open to other areas in which new diagnostics, treatments, drugs or therapies will be developed. Pazos noted that in Spain, as in the whole of Europe, there are research groups, with aid from public institutions, but regretted missing the last link in the chain that will allow patenting and reap the commercial results of these discoveries. There is a very good scientific production in Europe, but prevails the paradox that there is not a business sector willing to assume risk, nor in Galicia and Spain to commercialize and patenting, he noted.
