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. Tradicionally , dogs has been trained to detect several diseases though their sense of smell like cancer or malaria but, did you know that currently they are able to detect coronavirus?.

    This amazing ability is due to the big quantity of olfactory receptors that they have and to the percentage of their brain dedicated to analyse smells, which is fourty times bigger than in the human brain. To do that, they sniff the saliva of people both healthy and infected and then, they can detect a specific smell in the samples which are infected. This training is based in a reward system. When they do something good , they get a candy and dogs believe that they are just playing.

    This could be very useful because dogs could be used at points of entry in the country , such as airports to detect people infected by coronavirus or even asymtomatic people. In this way , authorities could have a new method of effective control and also faster than taking the temperature of every person in the airport.

    I think that dogs are very smart animals and they can be able to do that so , I think it is a good idea to help to prevent coronavirus .

  3. Nowadays, we are not able to know how diseases smell like, but dogs can do it. They can tell us that, but we know it. Many dogs have been trained to sniff out different ills, like cancers or malaria. When we see a dog, it is continually sniffing whatever it has around it.

    They have an incredible smell because of their 350 million sensory receptors dedicated to olfaction. They can detect many diseases because their noses have been trained to do it. This happens because when we are ill, our odour tends to change. Also, because of this amazing sense of smell they are used by police to search for a missing person. Besides all this, it is the only company that many people have, so, we can say that they help a lot in our society.

    At this moment, scientists of many different universities are finding out that as dogs can detect many diseases, they are also able to sniff out coronavirus. They are very good at learning so they learn how this virus smells and they will be capable of detecting it. There are many scientists who think that this is something fantastic, because this animal can detect a lot of infected people very quickly.

    To sum up, I think that it can be a fantastic advance in this pandemic. Obviously, if it does not imply mistreatment of animals. Many cases can be detected with this project.

  4. People do not know how viruses or diseases smell, but studies are showing that dogs can do it. Many of these animals have been trained to detect various diseases such as malaria or cancer.

    Sometimes we find dogs very distressing because they rush towards us and start sniffing at us. This is due to the 350 million sensory receptors for smell. For this reason, many dogs are being trained and trained to develop their sense of smell and detect diseases such as the one currently experienced with Covid-19. Experts think that this of dogs can become a fabulous discovery because many infections can be detected.

    Anyway, from my point of view I think this article is very interesting because it is an advance for science and above all a great advance in this pandemic that is getting out of hand. This project could save many lives and reduce a large number of infections.

  6. If they are dogs capable of smelling and preventing many viruses due to their sense of smell. How do you think they discovered the virus? Or still do not know?

    We all know the ability of dogs to smell, since their smell has many receptive sensors, which allow them to smell very well and from a long distance. It should also be noted that some dogs, due to their good sense of smell and fitness, are taken as a new member of the body by the police and the civil guard, who are assisted in customs so that drugs do not enter or even in house searches, cars and street

    On the other hand, they would also be useful to be able to prevent the virus, as they already did with other diseases, so they should be scienfied to do research with the dogs, but if they later have any disability or injury that allows them to live the life they had.

    I think that dogs are very intelligent animals and could help the vaccine for the virus and even for other diseases.

  8. At the beginning of quarantine, many people abandoned their pets believing that they could transmit the coronavirus. But a scientific study proved the opposite, saying that animals could suffer from coronavirus but not transmit it. Javier Rivas López 2 ° ESO A.

  9. I think that the animals are so intelligent, because they can do things that a human can´t. The dogs have the smell so developed, 50 times more higher than the human.
    On a lot of occasions I saw some police dogs that smelt in public places. Is so interesting to see these situations, because it surprises me with their ability to find things.
    I know that dogs can smell a lot of things, but never have I known that dogs can smell a virus or diseases.
    I think that if the dogs are able to smell the Covid, it is very useful to stop the contagion by Covid-19, because if in the places where there are many people there are dogs that can smell the contagion of covid would be paralyzed a little.

  10. Today we do not know what diseases smell like, but dogs do, studies show that dogs can. Many dogs have been trained to sniff out different diseases, such as cancer or malaria.Dogs often sniff things around them, and dogs sniff people they don't know.

    Dogs have such a developed smell, 50 times higher than humans. Many dogs are being trained to develop their sense of smell and are therefore capable of sniffing and detecting the coronavirus.
    the police use them to search.
    Since dogs are capable of detecting who has the coronavirus, it is even capable of detecting it in an asymptomatic person, they could put them in public places such as an airport, to prevent more and more infections from occurring.

    From my point of view, this article has been very interesting, since I think it can be a fantastic advance in this pandemic. Many cases can be detected with this project
