Everything YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO LEARN ABOUT YOUR VOICE…, but couldn’t find whom to ask!

For everybody, Magazine, Editor's choice
Dedicated to Claudio Lenk (r.i.p.), Roxana Coll, Ignacio Cobeta, Víctor Osma, and Concha Doñaque. - I - Our voices have an almost magical power to attract or repel other people. And in many indigenous cultures –oral and rural ones, a person's voice is that person –it reflects their soul, their essence, their self. “There is no index of character so sure as the voice” (Benjamín Disraeli). For those of us who use our voices in our professional lives (teachers, actors, singers, salespeople, therapists, speakers, politicians, street vendors, receptionists, and many more), our voices are everything. We must educate them, mold them, and train them, lest –if we do not– we irreversibly damage or even lose them (nodules, polyps, edema, aphonia, dysphonia, etc.). Yet..., it is very difficul

Multimedia, For audiences, For everybody, Videos
This video gives way to multiple interpretations. What few people would comment on, however, is its gnostic origin.  Signals are all around it: From the word Prometheus to the eye in the triangle; to the astounding initial statement that every human being is a god, and that through the internet he/she will become omnipresent, omnisapient (will know everything and all of us), and allmighty... Or the statement that each of us builds his/her own reality and identity, temporarily, mutating even in contradictory ways, and for a low or high –but always painful, price (in the realm of Gnosticism, not even friendship is free...). This kind of signals are key to decoding its message efficiently, and to take a knowing and responsible stance in regards to the phenomena we are living. Despite

FOR AUDIENCES WHO LONG TO HAVE FUN WITHOUT SUFFERING (including parents, teachers and all kinds of consumers)

For audiences
This web is the result of a seminal discovery, expressed by an uncountable number of impartial consumer and scientific studies: That both because of personal and social reasons, the majority of us want and need  fun contents in media --that is:  to have an appropriate amount of fun,  in a way and amount that seems healthy to our plurisecular cultures. That is why we will gather those of our articles that may interest consumers more, in the  "For audiences (parents, teachers...)"  section of this web. We hope you will like them.  We also hope you will soon start sharing with us your experiences, projects, ideas and material --we'll do our best to accomodate them here, as long as their reproduction is possible, relevant and legal. Welcome home!  Better and more profitable media
ARTICLES THAT INTEREST EVERYBODY (both creators and consumers)

ARTICLES THAT INTEREST EVERYBODY (both creators and consumers)

For everybody
When we study colective aesthetics --like those modelling most popular and folk literatures, there is no way we can divorce the creator from his/her audience. Mass media, just like folk tales, feed precisely from this rich catalogue of cultural elements we all own, as we explained in one of our articles ("A test about media...").  And because of this, creators must redefine themselves as spokesperson of their audiences' values, ideas and beliefs, identify with his/her readers/viewers/listeners, think the way they do, feel with them, and create for and with them. That is why it becomes so difficult to separate those articles that may interest creators, from those that may interest their audiences.  And that is whay we have gatheres articles that interest both of them in this section:

For media people
The Stone monolith that today stands in Saint Peter’s Square in Rome, was carved in Egypt 4000 years ago.  In the year 37 AD, the emperor Caligula ordered that it be moved to Rome.  This was a truly ambitious engineering challenge at the time, as well as proof of the Roman Empire’s power. Almost 1,150 years later, due to natural historical developments, it was necessary to move it to its present location.  Although only a few hundred meters distant, this too necessitated incredible effort and ingenuity and was almost an impossible task given the technology and resources available in Rome in 1586. Domenico Fontana, the chief engineer, spent months planning the operation.  He experimented with mechanisms of all kinds; pulleys, ropes, levers, as well as tools he himself designed. He calcu
