The new generation of spotify

Spotify is an application used to listen to songs via streaming. Can hear music search by artist, album or playlists created by users themselves. The program was launched on October 7, 2008 to the European market, while its implementation in other countries will be held throughout 2009. The company has signed agreements with record labels Universal Music, Sony BMG, EMI Music and Warner Music among others.


The user has access to the slopes of several labels, both multinational and independent labels, with an expanded list daily. The tracks can be found by searching for artists, titles, album, genre or year of publication. Users can create playlists and edit them or share them with other users. To this end, the playlist can, among other functions, provide a link to add to an email or instant message window. If the recipient follows the link, the playlist will be downloaded in the Spotify client of the recipient. Like the normal links in the playlist you can use the links everywhere, as in web pages. Exactly the same can be done in the individual tracks that can be shared by dragging and dropping in different programs and websites. The application integrates with Last.fm, and plans to develop a mobile version of Spotify.


I have this program and I must say that is going very well! The only problem is that some groups but not in general to me is perfect!

What you prefer in your summer beach or pool?




The beach is a place that is quiet in winter but summer is always crowded, I prefer to go to the creeks that are small i do not bother anyone. In the pool is no good because i sand the water is sweet thing is that my taste is better than not to be private because if you push around the world i can not swim well. But I think if tubiera I prefer to choose the sea because it is very beautiful, blue water with green ...




I think both are very well because you can spend a perfect day with friends, but I also think that if you want to go to one of the two sites with the boy or the girl you like the beach is much better, if you are looking for a bit you can find an ideal site! What I like most of the beach and the swimming pool is at night! are experiences that one has to go. It is one of the best feelings.




the ice cream




The ice cream is not as recent as some might imagine it dates from 2000 BC, is said to be of Chinese origin. This food product was introduced in Europe by Marco Polo at the end of the thirteenth century. The ice cream is rich in protein and vitamins. Its main inputs are: milk, water, fat, sugar, flavorings, fruits, stabilizers, gums, alginates and emulsifiers.




I love going to ice cream such that there are many different types of ice cream! increible me eat it all! already think that a meal but do not really like ice cream. There are many different types of ice cream, a day I prov the ice cream of bread with tomato! was a little bit bad, but I like are more like candy, Chocolate, Pistachio, strawberry, banana, sweet milk chocolate of fish, biscuit, cream catalana, melon. .. but even if it seems the Japanese have invented a lie frozen raw meat raw fish i! sick




In the process of developing the former was a mixture of milk, sugar, cream and a stabilizer. This mixture was frozen during the shaking process to prevent the formation of large ice crystals. Traditionally, the temperature is reduced by placing the mixture in a container, which is immersed in a mixture of crushed ice and salt. The salt lowers the temperature of melting ice, absorbing a larger amount of heat released by the cream, helándola in the process. In 1913 was invented in the U.S. the first machine to produce continuous ice cream, commonly known butter, which is the heart of the whole manufacturing process. Basically consists in the exterior of a large steel cylinder, which is frozen by a very potent cold in the interior of a beater with blades (connected by a shaft to a powerful electric motor) that are scraping the cylinder walls and moving the mixture continuously until the mixture reaches the consistency of an ice cream.




I hope that with this explication of ice cream have you really want to eat i try different ice cream!

A few days in the Pyrenees



These last 4 days I have been in the Pyrenees with my father, Marta and her children. This days have been fantastic!
We stayed in apartment in a campsite which was very nice and big, It was in the middle of a valley and facing the window he saw the snowy mountains.
We arrived on Thursday morning, we ate some macaroni which had brought from home and we went to market in Sort. When we arrived Xavi, Lluis and I played a baseball in the grass, after we have dinner and we went to sleep.
The next day we were walking through the mountains to see a lake. When we arrived at the apartment I was very tired, but worth it.
On Saturday we was scared because the weather forecast said it would make a very bad time and it could not do anything. But we decided to go to the mountains to see snow. It was amazing we had a war of snow, we did very well and we just all wet!
Every day in the afternoon I did homeworks and I read The Hound of Baskerbille.
This morning we left and made me shame because I had very good!

electric guitar

The guitar is a musical instrument with ancient roots that is used in a wide variety of musical styles. It typically has six strings, but four, seven, eight, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen and eighteen string guitars also exist.


I chose to talk about guitars because I love to play and know that I love his sound.


Guitars are recognized as one of the primary instruments in jazz, blues, country, flamenco, mariachi, rock music, and many forms of pop. They can also be a solo classical instrument.


Guitars may be played acoustically, where the tone is produced by vibration of the strings and modulated by the hollow body, or they may rely on an amplifier that can electronically manipulate tone. Such electric guitars were introduced in the 1930s and continue to have a profound influence on popular culture.

I talk about electric guitars, the Electric guitars are more usuals are:


Stratocaster: The Stratocaster is one of the models of most successful electric guitar. The Stratocaster is an electric guitar designed by Leo Fender in 1954 and still produced today.





















Lespaul: The Les Paul was designed by musician and inventor Lester William Polsfuss, better known as Les Paul, very popular at the time when he was hired by GibsonThe heavy body of the Les Paul is made in most models for a two-piece mahogany, which gives it a warm and dense ring and a maple top combo, which gives greater definition to the sound.




















telecaster: In 1949 Leo Fender created first solid body electric guitar called Esquire, with the same design of the "Tele" but with one simple pill in the bridge position. In 1951 he decided to create a new version of 2 pills. It was originally named Broadcaster, but copyright issues with Gretsch, who marketed a battery call Broadkaster was finally decided in 1952 by Telecaster, giving this name to the world revolution that would result from the television.Is widely used in soft rock, rock the 60s, but especially the electric guitar is excellent for country music.









SG: SG is a popular model of solid body electric guitar that has been introduced in the ancient 1960s. It is similar to Gibson Les Paul model, but is lighter due to the body and is closer to double-cutaway


















V:The V is an electric guitar model first released by Gibson in 1958.


fear


Fear is an emotional response to threats and danger. It is a basic survival mechanism occurring in response to a specific stimulus, such as pain or the threat of pain.

I am very fearful, I am afraid of many things: death, snakes, the funfair (adrenaline), the scary movies, dentists... There are many situations that make me feel scared and insecure.
Many people love fear, they like note that the stomach is squeezed and they have chills.

To give you more information about the fear I have searched the causes of in our body and what happens if we haven’t.

The mechanism that triggered the fear is, either in person or animal in the brain, specifically in the limbic system, which is responsible for regulating emotions, struggle, escape and avoidance of pain, and in general for all functions of the individual and conservation of the species. This system is constantly revised (even during sleep) all information is received through the senses, and does so through the structure called the amygdala, which controls basic emotions like fear or affection, and is responsible for locate the source of danger. When the amygdala was activated triggers feelings of fear.

It is noteworthy that ethanol inhibits the production of vasopressin.
The removal of the amygdala seems to remove the fear in animals, but no such thing happens in humans (at most, change their personality and become more calm), in which the mechanism of fear and aggressive behavior is more complex and interacting with the cerebral cortex and other parts of the limbic system.

Twilight


In Christmas Holydays I roud the young vampire-romance novel, Twilight.

Plot:

Isabella "Bella" Swan moves from sunny Phoenix, Arizona to rainy Forks, Washington to live with her father, Charlie, while her mother, Renée, travels with her new husband, Phil Dwyer, a minor league baseball player. Bella attracts much attention at her new school and is quickly befriended by several students. Much to her dismay, several boys compete for shy Bella's attention.
When Bella is seated next to Edward Cullen in class on her first day of school, Edward seems utterly repulsed by her. However, over the next few days Edward warms up to her, and their newfound relationship reaches a climax when Bella is nearly run over by a fellow classmate's van in the school parking lot. Seemingly defying the laws of reality, Edward saves her life when he instantaneously appears next to her and stops the van with his bare hands.
Bella becomes hellbent on figuring out how Edward saved her life, and constantly pesters him with questions. After tricking a family friend, Jacob Black, into telling her local tribal legends, Bella concludes that Edward and his family are vampires who drink animal blood rather than human. Edward confesses that he initially avoided Bella because the scent of her blood was so desirable to him. Over time, Edward and Bella fall in love.
Their relationship is thrown into chaos when another vampire coven sweeps into Forks. James, a tracker vampire who is intrigued by the Cullens' relationship with a human, wants to hunt Bella for sport. The Cullens attempt to distract the tracker by splitting up Bella and Edward, and Bella is sent to hide in a hotel in Phoenix. There, Bella receives a phone call from James, who claims he is holding her mother captive. When Bella surrenders herself, James attacks her, but Edward, along with the other Cullens, rescues Bella and kills James. Once they realize that James has bitten Bella's hand, Edward sucks the venom from her system before it can spread and transform her into a vampire, and she is then sent to a hospital. Upon returning to Forks, Bella and Edward attend their school prom and Bella expresses her desire to become a vampire, which Edward refuses.

work seach

In the last week the students of first batxillerat they try the work seach. I was trying the influence of advertising on young people because i thing that is very interesting.

Advertising is a form of communication that typically attempts to persuade potential customers to purchase or to consume more of a particular brand of product or service.

Many advertisements are designed to generate increased consumption of products and services through the creation and reinvention of the "brand image" . For these purposes, advertisements sometimes embed their persuasive message with factual information. Every major medium is used to deliver these messages, including television, radio, cinema, magazines, newspapers, video games, the Internet, carrier bags and billboards. Advertising is often placed by an advertising agency on behalf of a company or other organization.


for exaple this coca-cola advertisement it's very very good!!

Domestic violence occurs when a family member, partner or ex-partner attempts to physically or psychologically dominate another. Domestic violence often refers to violence between spouses, or spousal abuse but can also include cohabitants and non-married intimate partners. Domestic violence occurs in all cultures; people of all races, ethnicities, religions, sexes and classes can be perpetrators of domestic violence. Domestic violence is perpetrated by both men and women.
Domestic violence has many forms, including physical violence, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, intimidation, economic deprivation, and threats of violence. Violence can be criminal and includes physical assault (hitting, pushing, shoving, etc.), sexual abuse (unwanted or forced sexual activity), and stalking. Although emotional, psychological and financial abuse are not criminal behaviors, they are forms of abuse and can lead to criminal violence.

carnival!!




Carnival is a festive season which occurs immediately before Lent; the main events are usually during January and February. In castelló d'Empúries this year was held on saturday 28th of ferbruary but I didn't go because I was in madrid with my family. But I was going in roses and it was fantastic!!




Carnival typically involves a public celebration or parade combining some elements of a circus, masque and public street party. People often dress up or masquerade during the celebrations, which mark an overturning of daily life.
Carnival is a festival traditionally held in Roman Catholic and, to a lesser extent, Eastern Orthodox societies. Protestant areas usually do not have carnival celebrations or have modified traditions, such as the Danish Carnival or other Shrove Tuesday events. The Brazilian Carnaval is one of the best known celebrations today, but many cities and regions worldwide celebrate with large, popular, and days-long events. These include the Carnevale of Venice, Italy, the German Rhineland carnivals, centering on the Cologne carnival; the carnival of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Canary Islands; of Torres Vedras, Portugal; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; Rijeka, Croatia; Barranquilla, Colombia; Jamaica and Trinidad and Tobago. In the United States, the famous Mardi Gras celebrations in New Orleans, Louisiana, and Mobile, Alabama, date back to French and Spanish colonial times.

beer my favourite drink!!



Beer is the world's oldest and most widely consumed alcoholic beverage and the third most popular drink overall after water and tea. It is produced by the brewing and fermentation of starches, mainly derived from cereal grains—the most common of which is malted barley, although wheat, maize/corn, and rice are also widely used. Most beer is flavoured with hops, which add bitterness and act as a natural preservative, though other flavourings such as herbs or fruit may occasionally be included. Alcoholic beverages distilled after fermentation or fermented from non-starch sources such as grape juice (wine) or honey (mead) are not classified as beer.
Some of humanity's earliest known writings refer to the production and distribution of beer: the Code of Hammurabi included laws regulating beer and beer parlours, and "The Hymn to Ninkasi," a prayer to the Mesopotamian goddess of beer, served as both a prayer and as a method of remembering the recipe for beer in a culture with few literate people. Today, the brewing industry is a global business, consisting of several dominant multinational companies and many thousands of smaller producers ranging from brewpubs to regional breweries.
The basics of brewing beer are shared across national and cultural boundaries and are commonly categorized into two main types—the globally popular pale lagers and the regionally distinct ales which are further categorised into other varieties such as pale ale, stout and brown ale. The strength of beer is usually around 4% to 6% alcohol by volume though may range from less than 1% abv., to over 20% abv. in rare cases.
Beer forms part of the culture of various beer-drinking nations and has acquired various social traditions and associations, such as beer festivals and a rich pub culture involving activities such as pub crawling or pub games such as bar billiards.

Piercing and Tattoos!

Piercings and tattoos are instaured in the society but still now there are some people that not accept it. I like the piercings and tattos but i don't like a lot of them.




Body piercing is the practice of puncturing or cutting a part of the human body, creating an opening in which jewelry may be worn. Body piercing is a form of body modification. The word piercing can refer to the act or practice of body piercing, or to an opening in the body created by this act or practice. The cultural norms reflected in body piercing are various. They may include religion, spirituality, fashion, eroticism, conformism, or subcultural identification.





A tattoo is a permanent marking made by inserting ink into the layers of skin to change the pigment for decorative or other reasons. Tattoos on humans are a type of decorative body modification, while tattoos on animals are most commonly used for identification or branding.
Tattooing has been practiced worldwide. The Ainu, the indigenous people of Jap
an, traditionally wore facial tattoos. Today one can find Berbers of Tamazgha (North Africa) and Maori of New Zealand with facial tattoos. Tattooing was widespread among Polynesian peoples and among certain tribal groups in the Philippines, Borneo, Mentawai Islands, Africa, North America, South America, Mesoamerica, Europe, Japan, Cambodia, New Zealand and Micronesia. Despite some taboos surrounding tattooing, the art continues to be popular in many parts of the world.






There are some people who love so much these practices and I think that looks horrible.

A lot of celebrities and athlets are fans of tattoos.



example:

Coulant my specialty

I have a secret receipt to do a very exceptional chocolate coulant...


We need:

100g chocolate 70%, 100g sugar, 90g butter, 50g flour, 4 eggs.

To do:
To melt chocolate and the butter, then when the chocolate and the butter are dissolved, We bate the eggs, the sugar and the flour until we have a cream. We mix this cream with chocolate very slowly.


Then we put the cream into the backing pan and introduce into the oven at 190º C during 8 minutes.






Valentine's day (stupid habit)


Valentine's Day is a holiday celebrated on February 14 by many people throughout the world. In the West, it is the traditional day on which lovers express their love for each other by sending Valentine's cards, presenting flowers, or offering confectionery. The day was originally a pagan festival that was renamed after two Early Christian martyrs named Valentine. The day became associated with romantic love in the circle of Geoffrey Chaucer in the High Middle Ages, when the tradition of courtly love flourished.
The day is most closely associated with the mutual exchange of love notes in the form of "valentines". Modern Valentine symbols include the heart-shaped outline, doves, and the figure of the winged Cupid. Since the 19th century, handwritten notes have largely given way to mass-produced greeting cards.[1] The sending of Valentines was a fashion in nineteenth-century Great Britain, and, in 1847, Esther Howland developed a successful business in her Worcester, Massachusetts home with hand-made Valentine cards based on British models. The popularity of Valentine cards in 19th century America was a harbinger of the future commercialization of holidays in the United States.


In my opinion is a stupid habit because in Catalonia it celebrate Sant Jordi when the man gives a rose to his lover and the woman gives a book to him. I think that it is a tradition more deeply rooted than Valentine's day. Valentine's day is a comercial celebration.

Personal Shopper


Today my uncles come to my house to make a lunch with me, my fathers and my brother.
