The Outlook Of Liberalism

I saw with satisfaction how all aspects of Huila Liberals are preparing to participate in the consultation on 27 September. However, I must say I think too soon that would convene as scheduled, for the reasons expressed here. I made it clear that if the referendum passes the legal bodies that lie ahead, be prepared to accompany each other for a third term of President Uribe, for many reasons that share 80% of Colombians, but, among others, because I am I think the Liberal Party opposition has never had to make a man out of her womb. Unfortunately, and despite the strong popular support for the President, these judicial bodies of which I speak, are now highly entangled, with the opening of preliminary investigations against Representative who voted positively in the House and the uncertainties of subsequent revision of the Constitutional Court. On the other hand, lack of definition of national political realities is the only really strong today. Each day that passes becomes more evident that today no one is clear overview of the political parties even without Uribe in the race. Given all this, the Liberal Party has decided to make its consultation on 27 October, not only to choose directories but, it seems to clearly inconvenient, to choose its presidential candidate, knowing for certain that none of those who are now on the table would have the slightest chance of competing with an option for the presidency, even if President Uribe does not arise. We all know today that the percentage of the vote of Colombians by Pardo, Lopez Caballero, Gomez Mendez, Gaviria Correa Marulanda Velez, Lopez Montano, Rojas and even by the mime Gaviria Trujillo, where the case is negligible. So why persist in bringing liberalism to a disaster unprecedented in political history? Why not make a stop on the road and try to explore avenues that will lead to a repositioning on the national stage? Given the limited possibilities of a solution law to enable the President Uribe for a third term, is not it better to wait for the final definition on the fate of the referendum and in the meantime, ready interparty strategy to regroup scattered all liberal tendencies in all existing political parties in Colombia today, forces including Uribe? For me it is very clear that if we could agree a consultation involving LLERAS GERMAN VARGAS, JUAN MANUEL SANTOS and be chosen by consensus within the Liberal Party (which in my opinion should be RIVERA RODRIGO SALAZAR), that it would clear the overview of liberalism and put us strong options to get to the Presidency of the Republic. Of course presidential elections because diputarian between the candidate who wins the interparty consultation, the candidate of the Polo, or Petro Gaviria, that of Conservatism, Uribito or Nohemi Sanin, and the Independent Sergio Fajardo.

Organizational Learning

With regard to the management of emotions to enhance organizational learning in the curriculum of educational institutions, is based on the same powers which displays the emotionally intelligent individual, ie self awareness, self-management, social awareness and ability to properly manage the relationships. The difference however is that in this particular case, the powers for the proper handling of emotions not only has to do with the individual, but also with the group as a whole (school actors: teachers, managers, specialists, students, staff , staff workers, parents and / or representatives). Raised as soon leads to the conclusion that the actors in the development of school curriculum as a group has mood and needs, and act collectively. In the educational institutions with emotional intelligence competencies of the teams are a kind of continuum that feeds itself.

In other words the practice of self-consciousness of a team led him to realize the mood and needs of the group which leads naturally to empathy. Empathy, in turn, forms the basis for establishing and maintaining effective relationships with the rest of the organization, leading the team of school stakeholders to create and maintain standards and manage positive better relations with the outside world. Another important point to raise is related to the management of conflicts that arise in organizations and in this particular case in educational institutions. Cortese (2005), suggests that organizational conflict can be interpreted as forces that pull in opposite directions, may seem more of a tug of war: it is pushed in one direction and opposes anything or anyone who returned the pressure.

Successful Management

The man who wants to see everything clearly before you decide, never decides. Henri Frederic Amiel Nobody knows what he is capable until he tries. Publio Sirio What makes them different to managers in achieving their success, what are those characteristics that distinguish successful managers? What skills are fundamental requirements for a good manager? Do you consider yourself a successful manager? Where do you have expressed their failures that have hindered your achievements? Could be relevant questions in terms of defining the profile should have a good manager in terms of the basic skills you need to handle.

Remember, as quoted by Israel Fermin, Crosby (1988) defines management as “the art of making things happen.” For its part, Krygier (1988) defines it as a body of knowledge relevant to the effective management of an organization. At present, there is consensus among many authors, noting that the term management can be defined as a process involving coordination of all available resources in an organization (human, physical, technological, financial), so that through the processes of planning, organization, direction and control are achieved its goals. In this way, we can identify three key aspects such as defining the management process: first, the coordination of organizational resources, and second the execution of managerial tasks in administrative and / or also called means of achieving coordination and, thirdly, to establish the purpose of the management process, ie we want to go or what we want to achieve. Before proceeding further we need to know why and when management is needed, what it does and how.

Leisure Activity

Foverece recreational activity in childhood, self-confidence, independence and the formation of personality, thus becoming one of the primary educational and recreational activities. In every culture has developed this activity naturally and spontaneously, but for precise stimulation of specialized educators that energize, areas of suitable times to be shared with colleagues, toys that diversify and enrich , playful environments and climates that facilitate their spontaneity and creativity. Thus emerge as an institution that optimizes the possibilities described as space for the game unique, necessary in today's society. The Toy Library also because children born today have difficulty playing with freedom. These obstacles related to lack of space: small houses, the street does not provide places to play, parks are places ill-equipped and insecure … This reality must be added the loss of opportunities to meet with peers, difficulty in receiving visits from friends and play together in the home, poor relations with the neighboring site, the lack of free time during the school year or, simply, that many children do not even have brothers with whom to share their games. Although the desire is spontaneous play in children, the Ludotecas channel their efforts to foster the development of the child's personality through recreational activities, thus making a pleasurable activity for children in an important learning tool. They are not simply places where the child spends part of his time, but a valuable tool for education and development.

Thus, the Toy Library, try to: – Rescue the traditional game and counter the negative effects of the imposed image culture, with alternatives where images are formed by self-generated from creative play and symbolic. – Be a space for free play and use as a method of learning and skills development, skills and behaviors desired. – Being an alternative that, going beyond space, becomes a philosophy and an institution that promotes the development of critical and creative children. Ludotecas structure with these characteristics is equivalent to talk about the Toy Library as a project, which involves engaging in their generation according to a plan whose development should come from a genuine process of collective construction that ideal and feasible must follow criteria: – That the community particularly the children in interaction with the ludotecario and institutions to carry out the underlying diagnosis. – To organize working groups from the start with the participation of children. – Make clear the rules of operation, agreed and entered into, particularly the management of power structures and decision making.

– Generate a dynamic knowledge management that enables the community to organize their knowledge, expand the formal knowledge and translate it into tools and techniques, and processes mainly feed reflection, awareness and the ability to decide who qualifies all the action. The whole process of construction of the Toy Library has to be mediated essentially by a pedagogical approach based on the community and in building democratic spaces, from the initial diagnosis, the organization of groups, rules of operation and decision making . These criteria will allow us to engage children and parents, allowing us to transcend the tradition, which has been heavily influenced by the decision of the adult offering spaces for children, but without involving them in design, or the choice of toys or activities. In Spain, the Toy Library will acquire boom, whether promoted by the government itself or by private entities, thus providing a safe and attractive space for children where they can develop skills, stimulate their emotions and develop habits of coexistence, in addition to allowing more children to access some recreational resources that are normally beyond their reach.

Professional Preparation for the Future

Preparing future generations of professionals, statesmen and entrepreneurs with a complete and proper management of the natural language of its trading partners destroys the only barrier, (leaving aside the political and purely national interests), which could hinder future relations with the other members economic community from the south to eliminate differences communication at all levels. In addition, and recently negotiated with Bush on Ethanol. It is more than evident that their actions and decisions by the president of the coveted "market nation -" the north has led to a global imbalance, the effects of its fuel needs, has come to compromise the U.S. position for the future. United States produce enough ethanol to meet your needs … for now … but it is clear that the future will need much more than it is able to produce and therefore becomes relevant negotiations with Lula: Brazil is a major producer of ethanol in the world.

Does the lock? … is a classical American protectionist measures, the tariff would have to pay the Brazilian ethanol to be marketed in USA is so high now that it absurd if you want to try. Given the right circumstances for their actions the American president has been no choice but to negotiate on terms quite flush with Lula this whole ethanol, the proof is in statements given to reporters in Brazil by the brother of President Bush few days after this tour through South America, referring to the issue of tariff as if it were an insignificant issue, as something without much relevance that can be solved quickly.
