The moon has different levels of illumination
 due to its translational and elliptical motion.
So we can see from to earth various phases of the moon.

We’re A lot Like Trees

There's a great song to practice our English
 throught an artistic animation from dreambear

Paper Lights - We're Alot Like Trees (Official Music Video) from dreambear on Vimeo.

Were're A Lot Like Trees
by Paper Lights 

 It's been said of trees that they're imperfect men
imprisoned by the roots between their sins
with branches that reach into the dirt like arms
to plant their thoughts like seeds
but it never seemed so to me.

We're all living in the same room
and the heavens are the roof
we're all living in the shadow
of a canyon bigger than us.

It's been said that fire is just a greedy flame
with lights to distract from all it hopes to gain
all dressed up in colors to ignite it's claim
and a heart that's much like me
but I've never felt all that free.

We're all living in the same room
and the heavens are the roof
we're all living in the shadow
of a canyon bigger than us.

Subjects such as refugees
 deserve to be treated
despite being so delicate.

It is more easy to speak about climate change and pollution
than discuss issues involving the suffering of so many people
but children should know what awaits his generation.

In a century so fast where events accumulate
the history should not be satisfied with past knowledge
because the present is so ephemeral
 that not enough time for processing.

Children can imagine possible solutions
in their discussions or conversations
and can surprise us with their views.

The published data and maps are quickly outdated
but this interactive map can be very enlightening.

A Person Key

There's a lot of people who changed 
the way of life at the twenty century. 
However the key person can be 
who invented the World Wide Web in 1989.

 This event has a great transcendence
 because made a difference.
 Suddenly the simultaneity 
on the field of knowledge becomes possible. 
A new collaboration in several sectors
 results in an acceleration of the progress.
 Perhaps the view point about universality 
which allows diversity 
is the most courageous. 
Thanks to his inventor for it.
