Mitos y Verdades

1. La marihuana no hace daño permanente al organismo.

Falso.

Algunos de los efectos de la marihuana pueden ser
permanentes. El humo de la marihuana contiene monóxido de carbono y alquitrán y produce el mismo tipo de problemas que fumar cigarrillos.

2. La marihuana altera la memoria en el corto plazo, así como el sentido del tiempo. También reduce la habilidad de realizar tareas que requieran concentración, reacciones rápidas y coordinación.
Verdadero.

3. La marihuana por ser una planta es una droga inofensiva.

Falso.

Inicialmente, en dosis bajas, puede producir sensaciones placenteras de calma y bienestar, aumento del apetito, locuacidad e hilaridad. Pero también puede provocar taquicardia, enrojecimiento de los ojos, pérdida de la memoria a corto plazo, entre otros.

En dosis altas puede causar confusión, letargo, estados de pánico, percepción alterada de la realidad. Su consumo frecuente puede incidir en alteraciones de la memoria a corto plazo, la capacidad de razonamiento, atención y aprendizaje, provocando un adormecimiento de los sentidos y la capacidad de reacción.

4. La marihuana no produce problemas por fumarla.

Falso.

La marihuana produce dependencia, es decir, la persona que la consume frecuentemente necesita la droga para sentir, funcionar o realizar ciertas actividades. La marihuana puede producir dependencia, y puede producir efectos colaterales riesgosos y/o dañinos, en distintos sistemas del cuerpo humano (respiratorio, cardiovascular, sistema nervioso central y otros).

5. La marihuana no afecta el corazón.

Falso.

La marihuana puede acelerar el ritmo cardíaco (taquicardia) hasta en un 50% de su ritmo normal, y puede causar dolor en el pecho en individuos que tienen problemas cardiovasculares.

How to Coach A Debate Team [Kindle Edition]

This book contains all you need to know to successfully coach a debate team. You may need to convince students that debate is a good idea, though. Here are six reasons:
1. Debating ability is a valuable skill.
2. Debate utilizes useful English.
3. It is a unique way to teach grammar.
4. It develops critical thinking skills.
5. It introduces global issues.
6. It develops research skills.

A more powerful reason to coach a debate team is given to us by Dr. Martin Luther King: ““Sooner or later all the people of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace… If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation…” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. – 1964 Nobel Peace Prize Acceptance Speech

The International Baccalaureate [Kindle Edition]

The International Baccalaureate [Paperback]

The global search for high-quality education, embedded in high-performing education systems, has taken on mythical proportions, almost resembling the alchemists’ quest to turn common metals into gold.

It is my hope that the present day search for global education, equitable and providing equality of opportunity for all, shall not cease until the “gold” we seek, has been found.

I therefore dedicate this book to all the educators, researchers, parents and students the world over, who strive to achieve this elusive goal,high-quality education for all the citizens of the world.

In this endeavour, it is my belief that the International Baccalaureate merits a closer look, based on their more than 40 year history of delivering consistently excellent results.

I add that all of the reflections and views in this book are mine alone, unless otherwise noted, and can not be attributed to my employer or any other organization I am affiliated with, past or present. For any errors or oversights, I bear the complete responsibility.
