"When I was young my family moved often because of my father's work. Consequently I went to many different schools. Teachers at school told us things as "facts" but I soon had the attitude "Well, I'll see what they say at the…"
"Agree! That degree of skepticism is actually what makes you a good researcher. I have always been thought that I should always check the facts. Many of my professors told us that it didn’t matter what they said or not said in class, we…"
"It also, of course, has the opposite effect. People start to think that nothing you read is true. A mild degree of scepticism is, I suggest, healthy, but if we reach a point where there are no reliable sources of information then it could be a…"
"Definitely! Stories have two sides both of them responsible, both of them guilty. We can always try to improve, though, we can always try to stop pre-judging based on stereotypes. We can try to read and learn more and we can also try to teach…"
"It seems that people dislike immigrants because of stereotypes, it’s the same with religion. They like what they know, what they understand and what for them seems logical. They think that what they hear or read is always true, not matter…"
"My pleasure! I'm trying my best (both with English and Spanish). Someone mentioned in a previous post that Trump has always liked being popular, that he likes showing off. You can see this behaviour when watching his TV show “The…"
"Thank you for the translation, Jimena. I was struggling to get the precise meaning with some of the Spanish as my Spanish is far from perfect. I think the question you raise is very important. These are sweeping generalisation, but I think that…"
"Coincido contigo, el tiempo no sana todo y menos si mantenemos "abiertas las heridas". Deberíamos entender el pasado como pasado, aprender de él pero no aferrarnos, ni reprochar, pues ya nada podemos hacer.
Por otro lado, no…"
"Si no hay contrition, repentacion, excusas de parte del agresor las heridas no se curan. Es mentira que el tiempo todo lo sana...

"Such a beautiful cat!!!!! Mine goes out on lead, but he doesn't fancy out outdoor trips. I still think it's important for him, so he can get some sensory stimulus, plus he walks with me so it's a great exercise for him. "
"Yo creo que gran parte de la violencia viene de la falta de educación, tenemos un problema muy grave donde hay mucha gente ignorante y apática. Tenemos una "sobre información" donde basta con poner una palabra en el…"
