BEING A TEACHER....

BEING A TEACHER IS A DIFFICULT TASK NOWADAYS, SO I DECIDED TO FOLLOW THIS PIECE OF ADVICE BY BRUCE LEE:

Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. On November 28th, there was a serious plane crash, which transported the Chapecoense team. The pilot of the plane of the Chapecoense alerted of the lack of fuel before crashing. The plane crashed on a mountain near Medellín, killing 71 people, alerting the airport control tower that the aircraft had "a total electrical fault" and that it was "without fuel" before its signal was lost in The radar, according to confirms an audio published in several Colombian media in which the conversation between the commander and the air controller is heard. Of this accident they have survived 6 players, they are evolving favorably.

    Front my point of view, the accident was caused by the company, as they didn't provide enough fuel for the plane to reach its destination. On the one hand it's unbelievable and incredible that people die because companies don't want to spend money on fuel. On the other hand these families have a big loss, and their children will grow without their parents.

  2. Chapecoense is a club of Brazilian football with headquarters in Chapecó. This team plays in the Brazilian Championship of Series A, which is the maximum professional category of the country. It was founded in 1973 from the merger of two clubs amateur. This team was really famous when it ascends from Fourth Division of Brazil to the Serie A in only 6 years.

    This team suffered to pass the semifinal, but finally they qualified to play the final of the South American Coup. They had to play the first match of the final the 1st December, so they took a plane the 28th November to Medellin. They suffered a terrible accident. When they were on the plane, the pilot realised that the plane was having serious problems it hadn’t enough fuel to arrive at Medellin. He asked for help to the air controller and they opened a new runway in order that the plane was able for landing, but unfortunately the pilot couldn’t arrive at the runway and they crash in a mountainous zone of the northwest of Colombia when it rested only two minutes of flight to do the emergency landing. Only 6 persons have survived to this accident.

    I think it is a catastrophe for the sports world and especially the South American football since a good team has lost its players. I feel rage because this accident wouldn’t have happened if they had filled up the fuel. In my opinion, the most important teams in the world should help Chapecoense economically or even give some players.

  3. Associação Chapecoense de Futebol, commonly known as Chapecoense and whose acronym is ACF, is a Brazilian football club, based in the city of Chapecó in the state of Santa Catarina.
    The club has won five state titles to date, most recently in 2016. A relatively small club, they entered Brazil's top division, Série A, for the first time in 2014.
    On November 28, 2016, a charter flight carrying the first team crashed as it approached José María Córdova International Airport near Medellín, Colombia, where the team was traveling to play the first leg of the 2016 Copa Sudamericana final against Atlético Nacional.


    On the internet they say that the plane had the right gasoline to reach its destination , but there wasn't open airstrip , and the plane had to turn around .
    I see many videos on internet of Chapecoense and I cry a lot becasuse there is a very very sad accident for the world of football.

    It isn't usually to see a plane accidents in europe but in South American the clubs are Humbler than the clubs in europe , But I think that there shouldn't be such problems in the 21st century.

    FORÇA CHAPECOENSE¡¡¡

  4. last 28th of November the football team Chapecoense suffered from an aeroplane accident when flying to Columbia to participate on their first final against the national atletic, 81 passengers were flying on the plane from which 76 died. nine of the players didn't get on the plane for different reasons for example, Alejandro Martiniccio didn't take the flight because he was recovering from an injury. The goalkeeper was celebrating his birthday. The plane ran out of fuel and crashed into the mountains next to Medellin, The pilot informed various people but he completely run out of fuel before they could get any help. only six players survived and are getting fully recovered.from my point of view, it was a great irresponsibility to fly in a plane with just the amount of fuel because they didn't want to spend more money. this accident has caused lots of losses and now families are completely broken since they have lost their loved ones.

Telegraph said electrical problems might have caused the problem. Only five or six of eighty people survived to this tragedY, including some of the players.

    I reckon it's such a sad notice. However, everybody only talks of the tragedy since fotball players have died. But if there hadn't been a football team in the plane, no one would have spoken of this accident.

  6. This is about the recent plane accident with the football players from Brazil. The pilot of the plain said about the little fuel before they crash. The plane crashed near Medellin and that was a huge catastrophe because a lot of people died. Only 6 player survived this accident.

    Ithink it is a very sad accident and it may have been possible to avoid it. It is hard to believe that with a full tank it wouldn't have happened.
