Fisherman take fibers from the tops of coconut trees and make them into rope. They make fishing nets and sails for ther boats, too. But the nut is the most useful part of the tree. Farmers open the nuts and dry them. There is oil coconuts and they exports this oil to other countries. It goes into soap, toothpaste, ice-cream, paint and machine oil. The shell of coconut is useful, too. People make it into charcoal and this charcoal goes into filter-tips for cigarettes. There is milk in coconuts, too. It is good to drink and very pure. There are no germs in it. Doctors sometimes used this milk for drip-feeds during the war, when they could not get pure water and sugar.

                                                                           JOSE FELIX RIBAS.

      Jose Felix Ribas was born in Caracas, on September 19th, 1775. He was the youngest of the eleven children of a distinguished family from Caracas. He married Josefa Palacios who was Bolivar's aunt.

      He started his republican activity on April 19th, 1810 and he encouraged his neighbours to take part on the events on that date.

      He participated in a great number of battles, but the most important one was the battle of La Victoria on February 12th, 1814. He could stop Boves´s realist forces with unexperienced troops; most of them were young students and seminarists and to honour the young people who participated in this episode, the Day of the Youth is celebrated in Venezuela on this date.

      Ribas had a great participation in the war for independence and died in Tucupido on January 31st, 1815.

                                                                         A GREAT MAN.

                        Simon Bolivar Palacios, the liberator, was born in Caracas on July 24th, 1783 and died in Santa Marta, Colombia, in 1830. His uncle, who took care of Simon when he became an orphan at early age, sent him to Europe to complete his studies. Bolivar travelled through the European continent.

                        Bolivar, despite his short life, had a brilliant military career. He participated in the liberation of Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Bolivia. In one of the greatest feats oh History, he crossed the Andes and defeated the Royalist troops in the battle of Boyaca. Simon Bolivar had the political insight to refuse any offer of aid by the United States, which he always mistrust.

                        He felt that the men running that country should be treated as foreigners and that it would be neither useful nor intelligent to allow them to participate in Latin American affairs.

COMPARATIVO DE IGUALDAD Y SUPERIORIDAD

GUANTA, MAYO 23 DE 2013.
SEMESTRE 1RO DE CIENCIAS.

COMPARATIVO DE IGUALDAD Y DE SUPERIORIDAD.

ANTES DE COMENZAR ESTE OBJETIVO ES IMPORTANTE RECONOCER LOS ADJETIVOS(cortos y largos) EN CADA ORACION. CABE DESTACAR QUE EL ADJETIVO ES LA PALABRA DENTRO DE LA ORACION QUE CALIFICA AL SUJETO ; ES DECIR LO "DESCRIBE".

ALGUNOS ADJETIVOS CORTOS: RICH, GOOD, BAD, EASY. PRETTY, CHEAP, LONG, BIG, HIGH, TALL, POOR, LOW, NICE, FUN, FAT, THIN, WIDE, ETC.
ALGUNOS ADJETIVOS LARGOS: INTELLIGENT, HANDSOME, BEAUTIFUL, WONDERFUL, EXPENSIVE, INTERESTING,E TC.

COMPARATIVO DE IGUALDAD:
SE ENCUENTRA PRESENTE EN UNA ORACION CUANDO LO QUE SE COMPARA TIENE LA MISMA CARACTERISTICA. POR EJEMPLO CUANDO DECIMOS EN NUESTRO IDIOMA: MARIO ES TAN ALTO COMO SU PADRE. ACA ESTAMOS COMPARANDO A 2 PERSONAS Y ELLAS TIENEN EL MISMO CALIFICATIVO( ALTO ). EN INGLES EL ADJETIVO A EMPLEAR EN ESTE TIPO DE COMPARACION PUEDE SER DE CUALQUIER TIPO; ES DECIR CORTO O LARGO. TAMBIEN ES IMPORTANTE DESTACAR QUE LA ESTRUCTURA QUE CARACTERIZA A ESTE TIPO DE COMPARACION ES " AS.......AS " EL PRIMER "AS" SIGNIFICA "TANTO" Y EL SEGUNDO "AS" SIGNIFICA " COMO ".  FIJENSE EN LA ESTRUCTURA DE UNA ORACION DENOTANDO UN COMPRATIVO DE IGUALDAD. Sujeto+verbo+AS+adjetivo corto o largo+AS+otro sujeto a comparar.
AHORA LES DOY LA ORACION ANTERIOR PERO ESCRITA EN INGLES Y SE DARAN CUENTA DE LO EXPUESTO ACA MEDIANTE LA EXPLICACION DADA.
MARIO IS AS TALL AS HIS FATHER.
OTROS EJEMPLOS
1.- CHARLES IS AS HANDSOME AS JOSEPH.
2.- A CAR IS AS EXPENSIVE AS A HOUSE.
3.- THESE MOUNTAINS ARE AS HIGH AS THOSE ONES.
4.- ROSE AND MARY ARE AS PRETTY AS HELEN.

COMPARATIVO DE SUPERIORIDAD
EN ESTE OBJETIVO LA COMPARACION ES DIFERENTE A LA ANTERIOR. AQUI SE DESTACA QUE ALGO O ALGUIEN ES "MAS....QUE" OTRO. POR EJEMPLO CUANDO DECIMOS EN NUESTRO IDIOMA: 1.- ROSA ES MAS PEQUEÑA QUE CARMEN  O 2.- PEDRO ES MAS INTELIGENTE  QUE JUAN. TRADUCIENDO AL INGLES SERIAN ASI:
1.- ROSE IS SHORTER THAN CARMEN.
2.- PETER IS MORE INTELLIGENT THAN JOHN.
PODRAN HABER NOTADO QUE LAS COMPARACIONES SE ESCRIBEN DE FORMA DIFERENTE. ESTO ES DEBIDO AL TIPO DE ADJETIVO EMPLEADO EN LA ORACION. ES DECIR, SI EL ADJETIVO A EMPLEAR ES "CORTO" ENTONCES A ESE ADJETIVO SE LE AGREGA LA TERMINACION_ER+ THAN ( significa mas que ) Y SI POR EL CONTRARIO EL ADJETIVO ES LARGO, SIMPLEMENTE SE LE ANTEPONE LA PALABRA "MORE" Y DESPUES DEL ADJETIVO LARGO, LA PALABRA "THAN" ( more significa"mas" y than " que " ).
