Lázaro Cárdenas del Río



Infobox MexicanPresident name: Lázaro Cárdenas del Río image name: Mexico.LazaroCardenas.jpg date1 November 30, 1934 date2 December 1, 1940 preceded Abelardo L. Rodríguez succeeded Manuel Ávila Camacho date of birth 21 May 1895 place of birth Jiquilpan, Michoacán date of death 19 october 1970 place of death Mexico City profession Army General wife Amalia Solórzano party Party of the Mexican Revolution Lázaro Cárdenas del Río (May 21, 1895 – October 19, 1970) was President of Mexico of Mexico from 1934 to 1940. Lázaro Cárdenas was born into a lower-middle class family in the village of Jiquilpan, Michoacán. He supported his family (including his mother and 7 younger siblings) from age 16 on after the death of his father. By the age of 18 he had worked as a tax collector, a printers devil, and a jailkeeper. Although he left school at the age of eleven, he used every opportunity to educate himself and read widely throughout his life, especially works of history. Cárdenas originally set his sights at becoming a teacher, but was drawn into politics and the military during the Mexican Revolution after Victoriano Huerta overthrew President Francisco Madero. He backed Plutarco Elías Calles, and after Calles became President, Cárdenas became governor of Michoacán in 1928. He became known for his progressive program of building roads and schools, promoting education, and land reform, as well as the unusually strict honesty of his administration. Calles continued to dominate Mexico after his presidency with administrations that were his puppets. He selected Cárdenas to be the Partido Revolucionario Institucionals presidential candidate on the assumption that he could control Cárdenas as he had controlled others. Cárdenass first move once he took office late in 1934 was to have his presidential salary cut in half. Even more surprising moves would follow. After establishing himself in the presidency, Cárdenas had Calles and dozens of his corrupt associates arrested or deported to the United States, a decision that was greeted with great enthusiasm by the majority of the Mexican public. Cárdenas is considered by many historians to be the creator of a political system that lasted in Mexico until the end of the 1980s. At its heart were nationalistic policies involving Mexicos vast oil production, which had soared following strikes in 1910 in the area known as the Golden Lane, near Tampico, and which made Mexico the worlds second-largest oil producer by 1921, supplying approximately 20 percent of domestic demand in the United States. Cárdenass efforts to negotiate with Mexican Eagle, in the managerial control of Royal Dutch/Shell, and Standard Oil of New Jersey were unavailing, and the companies rejected a solution proposed by a presidential commission. So at 9:45 p.m. on the evening of March 18, 1938, Cárdenas nationalized Mexicos petroleum reserves and expropriated the equipment of the foreign oil companies in Mexico. The announcement inspired a spontaneous six-hour parade in Mexico City. Even though compensation for the expropriated assests was included in this legislation, the act angered the international business community and vexed foreign governments, especially acrobat distillerGreat Britain. The British severed diplomatic relations with Cárdenass government, and Mexican oil and other goods were boycotted. However, with the outbreak of World War II, oil became a highly sought-after commodity and the boycott ended. The Mexican company that Cárdenas adobe acrobatfounded, Petróleos Mexicanos (or Pemex), would later be a model for other nations talej62seeking greater control over their own oil and natural gas resources. After adobe acrobat 70his presidential term, Cárdenas served as Mexicos secretary of defense through 1945. It is often said that Lázaro Cárdenas was isabelle26gkthe only president from the PRI who did not use the office to adobe acrobat free downloadmake himself wealthy. He retired to a free adobe acrobatmodest home by Lake Pátzcuaro and worked the rest of his life supervising irrigation projects and promoting free medical clinics and education for the nations poor. free adobe acrobat readerLázaro Cárdenas died of cancer in Mexico City. His son Cuauhtémoc Cárdenas is a prominent Mexican politician. In his honor, quite a few cities in Mexico have named streets after him, including highways in Guadalajara and Monterrey.

Donald Norman



Donald Norman is a professor emeritus of computer science at University of California, San Diego and a Professor of Computer Science at Northwestern University, but nowadays works mostly with cognitive science in the domain of usability engineering. Normans earlier books deal mostly with usability or with cognitive psychology, but Things That Make Us Smart also makes a few remarks of critical nature regarding our society, in particular Norman dislikes the content-less nature of television and bad museum exhibits. Lately he has tended to focus on the positive. He loves products which are enjoyable to use, a feature which he attributes to putting together emotion and design, or heart and mind. He has explained this in detail in his book Emotional Design. He is a promoter of the concept of Information appliances, which he has covered in his book The Invisible Computer. He collaborates with Jakob Nielsen (usability consultant) and Bruce Tognazzini in the Nielsen Norman Group.

Career

Norman has a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from MIT and adobe acrobat 70a Doctor of Philosophy in psychology ashliek9vrfrom the University of Pennsylvania. He also holds a honorary degree from the University of Padua in Padua, Italy. acrobat readerHe has been a professor of computer science adobe acrobat(at Northwestern University), psychology and cognitive science (at University of California, San Diego). acrobat distillerHe has also worked for Apple Computer at Apples Advanced Technology Group and for Hewlett-Packard.

Germans



The Germans (German language: die Deutschen) are people of German descent, i.e. ones associating themselves with the heritage of German culture. The concept of who is a German has varied. Until the 19th century, it denoted the speakers of German language, and was a much more distinct concept than that of Germany, the land of the Germans. The Dutch and the Swiss had already split off and shaped separate national identities. The German Swiss, however, retained their cultural identity as German, albeit as a specific German subculture. In the 19th century, after the Napoleonic Wars and the fall of the Holy Roman Empire, Austria and Prussia would emerge as two opposite poles in Germany, trying to re-establish the divided German nation. In 1871, Prussia attracted even Bavaria into the newly established German Empire, and the multi-ethnic Austrian Habsburg monarchy was effectively excluded from the attempt to create a German nation state. From this and on, the connotation of Germans came to shift gradually from speakers of the German language to Imperial Germans and today nationals of the Federal Republic of Germany. Before the second world war, most Austrians considered themselves Germans and denied the existence of a distinct Austrian ethnic identity. It was only after the German defeat in World War II, that this began to change. After the world war, the Austrians increasingly saw themselves as a nation distinct from the other German-speaking areas of Europe, and today, polls indicate that no more than 10% of the German-speaking Austrians see themselves as part of a larger German nation (volk) linked willie5qt2by blood or language. Ethnic Germans form an important minority group in several Central European and Eastern European countries (Poland, Hungary, Romania and the Commonwealth of Independent States) as well as in Namibia and in southern Brazil. In the United States of America, 60 million people are fully or partly of German ancestry, forming the largest ethnic group in the country. In recent years, the German speaking countries of Europe have been confronted with demographic changes due to decades of immigration. These changes have lead to renewed debates, especially in the Federal Republic of Germany, about who should be considered German. Non-ethnic Germans now make up more than 8% of the German population, mostly the descendants of guest workers who arrived in the 1960s and 70s. Turks, Italians, Greeks, and people from Southeast Europe form the largest single groups of non-ethnic Germans in the country. Germany is now also home to thousands of non-white and racially-mixed people as well. While most ethnic minorities in the country remain non-citizens, thousands have gained German passports. The majority of Germans maintain the view that an individual needs to have at least one ethnic German parent to be considered German, this view allows some visible minorities to be considered German, especially children of mixed heritage. Recent Jus sanguinis and the increased visibility of ethnic minorities would seem to indicate that brigidae608the concept of who is a German acrobat distilleris slowly moving acrobat readeraway from one that centered entirely adobe acrobat readeron ethnicity and heritage to acrobat reader free downloada concept based more on nationality adobe acrobat(i.e. citizenship) and cultural identification.
