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.

Is the POTATO still the solution to save the world?


A long time ago, potatoes changed the world when they were once discovered in America (as you can see in the Selectivity exam below), but potatoes can be the solution to many of the problems that affect us nowadays.

  2. This morning I've just noticed that potatoes are more important that they seem. Potatoes are a great food to keep yourself healthy. It's also food that you can plant lots of times. Only by breaking it in little peaces and planting them one by one you can grow any potatoes as you want.

    I've also heard that you can charge a smart phone with a potato. You only need to connect the cable to it and your mobile phone will start to charge. That's a really clever thing because if you go anywhere else where you don't have any plug to charge your mobile you can connect it to a potato and you'll have your phone charged in a couple of hours.

    Potatoes are very important in our world, but what I most like is eating them at McDonalds. They're so delicious and they are much better when you add them any sauce like Ketchup or Mayonnaise. I love potatoes!

  3. A few days ago in English class the teacher told us that you could load the mobile with potatoes, when he told us that I could not believe it, in the afternoon I searched the Internet and it was true and it also came out in the book of technology.
    I only believed that the potatoes were for eating but I know that it serves more than one thing.
    Someday I would like to be able to charge the phone with two potatoes if it really works and see with my own eyes that this trick works.
    I have curiosity to know how they discovered that trick.

I was surprised because you can get better when you have a burnt in your body if you put a potato in that part, and it can help you not to get acne. And you can get energy from potatoes!! What a great food.

  7. The potato is a species of herbaceous plant belonging to the genus Solanum of the Solanaceae family, native to the region that today would comprise the southern highlands of Peru1 and northwestern Bolivia.2 It was domesticated in the Andean altiplano and in the vicinity of Lake Titicaca by the inhabitants of this region for about 8,000 years.3 4 In the sixteenth century began to be moved to Europe by the Spanish conquerors who considered it a botanical curiosity and not a food plant . Its consumption was growing, although initially as a forage and garden plant for its flowers, and its gastronomic use expanded worldwide since the eighteenth century thanks to the agronomic writings of the Frenchman Antoine Parmentier and the Irishman based in Spain Enrique Doyle, to become today one of the main foods of the human being

  8. Potatoes are a food consumed by many people in different countries.
    From the potatoes we can obtain other foods, such as the potato omelette, the potato salad and the most common and well-known potato chips.

    Potatoes are rich in vitamins such as vitamin C, vitamin A and others. It is also rich in protein and minerals and, according to scientists, reduces blood pressure and does not make you fat.
    Researchers say it is a food that takes a lot of hunger in countries that do not have to eat.

    In my opinion, people should eat more potatoes because they have many proteins and vitamins and are a food that take away much hunger.
