Operación Triunfo

“Operación Triunfo” better known as OT, is a Spanish television contest with the objective of finding new fingers. The directors of this program prepare castings all around Spain. At the end, they select 18 contestants who have to sing at the “Gala 0” because they only can be 16 and the jury has to select the 16 participants. This contest is very repetitive, every week they give a song to the contestants, and they have to prepare it for the “Gala”. They have different lessons throughout the day for example they do fitness, yoga, dance… but they also have singing lessons or interpretation lessons. The “galas” are broadcasted live on Mondays. There is an APP so you can vote for your favourite and you can save the nominated. You can also see the news of the day.

At the “galas” they sing and and at the end of the “gala” the presenter says who is the favourite and the favourite can’t be nominated. Also the judge has to nominate 4 contestants. The teachers have to save one of the nominates and the other contestants have to save another. At the end, there will be 2 nominates and throughout the week the public can save one through the APP or calling. The winner of that contest will win 100.00 euros and the possibility to go to Eurovision. But all the contestants will record CDs of OT.

Instagram

Instagram is a social network created by Kevin Systrom and Mike Krieger in 2010. It is used to share images and videos and to talk with friends, with family, etc. The application allows users to take pictures, apply filters and frames if you want, and finally show them to their friends or followers. It also allows to send it to other applications like Facebook, Twitter, etc.
Instagram was originally designed for iPhone, iPad and iPod with a download from the APP Store and from its website. At the beginning of April 2012, a version was published for Android and, currently, is also download from Google Play. Since its creation, Instagram has been very popular. In November 2011, it had 12 million followers and, currently, the application has more than 100 million of active users, and it has become one of the most used apps (between the 10 most used).

The insta stories is a new option that Instagram has incorporated relatively recently and has become a great and famous success. They allow you to upload pictures or videos for 24 hours. In addition, it also presents the possibility of being able to write about the videos or photographs you made, to add emoticons or to make drawings, always facilitating the user the task. Users can carry out informal publications that will last only 24 hours and focus on presenting the rest of their followers what they are doing.

I think that Instagram is a good network to talk and inform you about the things that happen. But all with good use because it can end up being addictive and even a way to have fights. But I think it is a very good way to expose, in a careful way, your life to the world.

4th ESO Project: TV news

Hi bloggers!

Breaking news!!!! A cold wave in Barcelona!!!


Travelling

In my opinion travelling is the only thing in which you spend money and at the same time you get richer. Why? Because when you travel around the world, you spend money to buy the plane tickets, the hotel... But as you visit other countries and learn new cultures, ways of life..., you enrich yourself.

When you travel, you know what happens in the world, because you see with your eyes and not through the news. Also, after visiting many countries and learning many cultures, you open your mind and you can give your opinion about your favourite way of life, so you can visit this place more times. Sometimes travelling is cheap, because have an offer o also you can save money for a time. Depending on the place that you go, it is easier and faster to go, for example going around Europe is easier and faster that going to New Zealand. In conclusion, traveling is amazing and it is the best way to meet yourself.

My Magical Moment

A magical moment of my life happened at the beginning of May, 2010. It was the first time I travelled abroad. We went to Disneyland Paris, an amazing and magical world. It has been one of my best travels because it is the most beautiful site in my childhood where I saw my favourite animated characters.
Every day in the theme park, we went to the rides and we did several different activities all the day. One of them, which I loved to do, was to get signatures of all the animated characters that we found. I bought a notebook to have the signatures of all the characters. We also went to the parade that you can see in “Main Street” every day.  There it appeared all the Disney characters, for example: the princesses like Cinderella the monsters SA, Ratatouille, and more varied activities.

I spent four days there and one day in Paris. We went to Paris because he impressed me a lot since I read a book of Tea Stilton that was located in Paris the city of Love.
In Paris we visited different monuments, the most relevant like for example: Eiffel Tower, The cathedral of Notre dame. We went for a walk along the Siena River. I would have liked to be more days in Paris because I would have liked to visit more monuments and places there.

The real thing is that I do not remember everything but I would like to return to relive all those moments because I had the best sensations.

"La que se avecina", the TV series

Hi bloggers!
“La que avecina” is my favourite TV series. I see it in FDF channel at lunchtime every day. I really like it. 
It is about a community of neighbours, which is funny. There is no a clear protagonist, but some characters are more important than others. For me, the two most important and at the same time funniest characters are Antonio and Amador. 

On the ground floor, Maite lives with her four children. Right now, she has a lot of money, but she had even lived in a garage. Maite is a famous writer and he pays Amador a salary, so he will not ask her for a divorce. In front of her, it lives a rich politician who has had three women. On the first floor, there is an old woman who only annoys the neighbours. Antonio is also a little bit crazy. He has a fish shop, and his wife is a housewife. A young couple lives on the attic; he is a computer technician and she is an actress. They have a daughter. Finally, there is a young girl who lives with Enrique’s daughter, and she is a psychologist. It is a very funny TV series that I recommend you.

Cameron Boyce

Cameron Boyce is a very famous actor and dancer and with only 18 years!
When he was seven years old, he started as a model in the Disney store catalogues. As he likes dancing, he left models’ world later on.
When he was eight years old, he was admitted into an actors' agency and he made many ads. Later he took part in a video clip as a dancer and actor and he participated as an unimportant actor in short films.
One important moment in his life was when Disney called him as a guest in one of his television shows. Disney discovered the talent of the boy and when Disney created the new TV series they gave him a very important role.

Now he is very famous and many teenagers have a crush on him.

OCD: Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder

The obsessive-compulsive disorder is a psychiatric illness that can affect people of all ages, and it is based in obsessions. These obsessions are annoying thoughts that cause unpleasant emotions like fear, then the person does compulsions to decrease his/her distress.
Although OCD can occur at any age, there are generally two age ranges when OCD tends to appear first: - Between the ages 8 and 12.    – Between the late teen years and early adulthood.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health of the United Estates, actually about 1 in 100 adults currently have OCD. There is also at least 1 in 200 kids and teens that has OCD.


Today, we still do not know the exact cause of OCD, but some research suggests that OCD involves problems in communication between the front part of the brain and deeper structures of the brain. These brain structures use a neurotransmitter called serotonin. Some studies say that in some people, the brain circuits involved in OCD become more normal with medications that affect serotonin levels.
The most effective treatments for OCD are Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and medication. More specifically, the most effective treatments are a type of CBT called Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), which has a class of medications called serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRI).
Finally, there are many types of OCD and it is probable that you will have one.
