Sant Jordi's Day

That day I went to village centre for a walk . In the street I found the bookshop’s stands where in that day you can find especial prices a 10% reduction (books have always a fix price). The tradition is very chauvinist: a book for men a rose for women. I had to buy a book to my husband but he doesn’t like reading. I bought a book for me like a present for him. My daughter enjoyed this day in the school with special activities like going out and a literature contest or workshops.

The main event is the exchange of gifts between sweethearts, loved ones and respected ones. Historically, men gave their girlfriends and wives roses, and women gave their boyfriends and husbands a book to celebrate the occasion. In modern times, the mutual exchange of books is quite often. Roses have been associated with this day since medieval times. Barcelona is an important publishing capital in both Catalan and Spanish.

Games I like to play

Hey, the games I like to play the most are the first person shooter ones, online. I like to compete againts other players over the internet. The best game I've ever played is Empires, which is a HL2 modification.

The game consists on two factions that are on war, ones fighting for freedom and the others for the world domination.

It mixes the first person shooting with real-time strategy. There is a commander that leads their team, drops structures over the map like turrets or refineries, creates vehicles, gives enemy targets... etc. And the rest of the team fights on foot or using vehicles. It's a good game. If you own a copy of Half-Life 2 download this modification, it's free.

This is now the Cathedral. This beautiful neogothic church was built at the beginning of XX century by project of Jozef Pius Dziekonski. This church is very beautiful inside. There are too great stained glass windows. I think that the history of St. Fara Church is very interesting. In 19th century Poland was annexed by Prussia, Russia and Austria. Bialystok belonged to Russians. Polish people couldn`t build anything without Russians` permission... In 1899, after 39 year waiting period, city dwellers received a permit to build a little annexe to an old church in Bialystok...Later it turned out that this tiny annexe is many times as big as the main church. It is a "solid comment" on persecution that took place in Poland in 19th century... The "red" church this is annexe, the "white".... this is the main church. Now the church is the Cathedrale.

Narwiański Park Narodowy

The Narew National Park is located in the north-east of Poland and occupies a total area of 6810 ha. The Park was established on July 22, 1996 and occupies a part of the Narew valley between Suraz and Rzedziany. The park’s office is located in Kurowo in an antique manor house surrounded by an old rural park with numerous nature monuments.
The aim of the establishment of the Narew National Park was to protect the swampy Narew valley and its unique anastomosing river-system with richness of flora and fauna. Widespread, highly complicated systems of river channels have lead to the formation of a vast wetland ecosystem that nearly fills the entire valley bottom and forms a mosaic of flood plains, swamps and sandy mounds.

In total, 58 plants communities are found in the area. Marsh plants, mainly reed and pendulous sedge but also a huge number of aquatic plants dominate this area. Willows and beech-trees are found at the edges of the valley. More than 650 species of vascular plants represent the flora of the Park (including many protected species). The vegetation of the NNP is rich in species being under strict protection, e.g. Siberian iris, Greek valerian, common sundew, gladiolus, superb pink and orchids.
The Narew National Park and its buffer zones are a core bird life area of European importance. About 203 species of birds live in the various ecosystems. Moreover, the Narew valley is an important stop over for many migrating birds and provides excellent resting sites, particularly during spring time. Several of these species are threatened, including bittern, Montagu's harrier, great snipe, curlew, spotted crake, little crake, and aquatic warbler. The emblem of the National Park is the marsh harrier. Due to the unique diversity of the flora and fauna in the Narew National Park this area is an important site regarding the European Network of Natura 2000.
The Narew National Park is inhabited by 40 species of mammals, of witch the most characteristic ones - beaver and other are connected with water or marshy areas. The visitors can also meet elk, roe deer, wild boar, musk-rat, fox, raccoon dog, weasel, ermine, American mink, stone marten and others.

fitxers del curs

Els fitxers del curs

En el moodle per una major i millor organització, cada curs té assignada una carpeta, un directori, on desar tots els fitxers relacionats. Aneu al curs del qual sou professors. Per accedir a aquesta carpeta només cal anar al bloc d’Administració i clicar sobre Fitxers:

Això us mostrarà quins fitxers hi ha al curs. Lògicament, un curs acabat de crear està completament buit, a la imatge següent teniu el del curs en el que esteu ara.

Carpetes que moodle pot crear dins de fitxers:

  • Carpeta backupdata. Quan es fa una còpia de seguretat manual d’un curs també es desa a la carpeta backupdata, de manera que el seu contingut són còpies de seguretat de diferent tipus (amb usuaris, sense usuaris, completes, parcials, etc.) i de diferents dates.El contingut de la carpeta backupdata no és accessible als estudiants, només hi pot accedir el professorat.
  • Carpeta moodata: Si heu afegit al curs alguna activitat que admet fitxers adjunts (un fòrum, una tasca amb enviament de fitxers, etc.) Moodle crearà automàticament una carpeta moddata. Dins d’aquesta carpeta moddata Moodle crea subcarpetes per a cada activitat, i, al seu interior, en crea de noves per desar-hi ordenadament els fitxers adjunts.

Com crear un directori

El recurs Visualitza un directori crearà una “finestra” que portarà directament al directori corresponent dels fitxers del curs de manera que se’n vegi el contingut.

  • El primer pas és crear aquest directori.
  • Per crear un directori cal anar al bloc d’Administració del curs i clicar Fitxers.
  • Toqueu el botó Crea una carpeta.
  • Això obre una pàgina que us informa on es crearà la carpeta i us demana que li doneu un nom, "documents" per l’exemple o el nom que volgueu. En acabar, premeu el botó Crea.

Podeu descarregar aquest vídeo fet amb wink per veure com es fan aquests passos

Ara ja teniu la carpeta creada i la podeu veure, ordenada pel nom, entre les altres carpetes del curs.

  • Si premeu el botó Penja aquest fitxer el pujareu a l’interior de la carpeta. Un cop és al servidor, ja el podeu visualitzar:

Podeu descarregar aquest vídeo fet amb wink per veure com es fan aquests passos

Si heu de pujar pocs fitxers, podeu repetir aquests passos les vegades que calgui, però si són molts és millor pujar un arxiu comprimit zip i descomprimir-lo a dins del moodle. També heu de tenir present el limit de grandària (8Mbytes). Si heu de pujar fitxers que excedeixen la mida permesa, poseu-vos en contacte amb l’administrador del vostre Moodle, que els pujarà directament per FTP.

Quan pugeu un arxiu zip observareu que a la dreta del seu nom apareixen diferents opcions: Unzip (descomprimeix), Llista (el contingut), Restaura (útil només pel cas de les còpies de seguretat) i Canvia el nom. Cliqueu Unzip per descomprimir-lo.
