Octavio Paz

Octavio Paz Lozano was born in March 31, 1914 – April 19, 1998) was a Mexican poet-diplomat and writer.

For his body of work, he was awarded the 1981 Miguel de Cervantes Prize, the 1982 Neustadt International Prize for Literature, and the 1990 Nobel Prize in Literature.

Octavio Paz was introduced to literature early in his life through the influence of his grandfather's library, filled with classic Mexican and European literature.

As a teenager in 1931, Paz published his first poems, including "Cabellera". Two years later, at the age of 19, he published  "Wild Moon", a collection of poems. In 1932, with some friends, he founded his first literary review, Barandal. In 1937 at the age of 23, Paz abandoned his law studies and left Mexico City for Yucatán to work at a school in Mérida, set up for the sons of peasants and workers.There, he began working on the first of his long, ambitious poems,"Between the Stone and the Flower" (1941, revised in 1976). Influenced by the work of T. S. Eliot, it explores the situation of the Mexican peasant under the domineering landlords of the day.

In India, Paz completed several works, including The Monkey Grammarian and Eastern Slope. While in India, he met numerous writers of a group known as the Hungry Generation and had a profound influence on them. He met his first wife Elena Garro a writer in Mexico City and was married to her in 1937, they were together until 1959. They had a daughter Helena Laura Paz Garro. In 1965, he married Marie-José Tramini, a French woman who would be his wife for the rest of his life. In October 1968, he resigned from the diplomatic service in protest of the Mexican government's massacre of student demonstrators in the Plaza de las Tres Culturas in Tlatelolco.

William Shakespeare

He was an English poetplaywright, and actor, widely regarded as the greatest writer in the English language and the world's pre-eminent dramatist.

To be or not be, for I have a question here. What is more worthy of the spirit ?, suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune or to take arms against calamities oceans and by opposing end them Perhaps? Die ..., sleep; not more. And to think that with a sleep to say we end the heart and despite the thousand natural shocks that are the heritage of the flesh! Here is a devoutly appealing term! Die ... sleep, and perhaps dream! Yes, there's the rub! It is forced to stop us consider what dreams can survive in that sleep of death, when we have cleared the whirlwind of life.

Ben Jonson

Ben Jonson (originally Benjamin Jonson  c. 11 June 1572 – 6 August 1637) was an English playwright, poet, and literary critic of the seventeenth century, whose artistry exerted a lasting impact upon English poetry and stage comedy. He popularised the comedy of humours. He is best known for the satirical plays Every Man in His Humour (1598), Volpone, or The Foxe (1605), The Alchemist (1610), and Bartholomew Fayre: A Comedy (1614), and for his lyric poetry; he is generally regarded as the second most important English dramatist, after William Shakespeare, during the reign of James I.

Jonson was a classically educated, well-read, and cultured man of the English Renaissance with an appetite for controversy (personal and political, artistic and intellectual) whose cultural influence was of unparalleled breadth upon the playwrights and the poets of the Jacobean era (1603–1625) and of the Caroline era (1625–1642).

Curiosa fact about math

19. .999999… = 1

.999999… = 1

Here's the proof:

If 10N = 9.9999...
Then N = .9999....
Subtract N from 10N, leaving you with 9N=9.
So then N=1. But we already know that N=.9999... as well. 
So 1=.9999....

A substance obtained by a process.

A form of energy produced bye movement of molecules, capable of transmission by conduction.

Of or concerned with electricity.

Of or produced by movement.



The great nineteenth-century mathematician Carl Friedrich Gauss called mathematics "the Queen of Sciences".
If mathematics is a queen, are the White Queen from "Alice in Wonderland". This White Queen believed in "as six impossible things before breakfast." (It is not surprising that Lewis Carroll also wrote on algebraic geometry).


Chemical  Energy:
Energy liberated by a chemical reaction or absorbed in the formation of a chemical compound.

Electrical Enegy:

An electric current that reverses direction sinusoidally; "In the US most household current is AC at 60 cycles per second".

Heat energy:

Heat energy (or just heat) is a form of energy which transfers among particles in a substance (or system) by means of kinetic energy of those particle.

Kinectic Energy

Energy that a body possesses by virtue of being in motion.




Types Of Energy

Heat energy (or just heat) is a form of energy which transfers among particles in a substance.

Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. An object that has motion - whether it is vertical or horizontal motion - has kinetic energy.

Chemical energy is energy that is stored in chemicals, such as sugar and gasoline. As chemical energy is stored energy, it is a type of potential energy,

Electrical energy is energy that's stored in charged particles within an electric field. 



1.-Kinectic:The energy of a body.

2.-Chemical:Is a substance.

3.-Electrical:Concerned with electricity.

4.-Heat:The state of a body perceived as generating a high temperature.
