Finding a job is more complicated for this group than for the previous group. Manual labor jobs that require physical effort do not fit into their plan for a better life, causing them to reject these jobs. Preferred positions demand no specific qualification or physical effort, such as: nocturnal workers, store clerks, watchmen or other monitoring, and care-takers of the elderly or patients with disabilities. Aspiration to find a job in agreement with their preparation causes great frustration, but very rarely do they obtain such employment.

The interest to learn Spanish is great. For them it is important to reach high levels of Spanish for two reasons: (a) because they do not resign to the jobs that are offered to immigrants; and (b) they wish to learn a higher level than the merely instrumental one of survival because they also want to express their feelings in Spanish. The majority dominate French, which at first facilitates them in learning Spanish.

For both groups, poverty imposes resignation and self-contempt. It seems that the poorest people assume a negative vision of themselves, but of course, to take on those values does not benefit them; in fact, it favors others.

Something that both groups have in common is they like to learn Spanish sayings. My mother, who was from a town in Burgos, knew numerous sayings which she expressed to describe daily situations. I went through childhood without paying attention to them until one day in a Spanish class for immigrants I said one they liked, so they requested more. Due to their requests and enthusiasm to learn these sayings, I taught them many which I thought I had forgotten. The students remembered a great amount of them. They have also taught me some Moroccan sayings. For example, to show gratefulness toward the person who has taught to you to read and write you say: "To the person who has taught to me to read and write; I remain a slave.” Occasionally I spoke to them about the importance of taking care of your back during work in order to grow old with good health, and that it is important to take care of your health in all stages of life. Once an elderly person said to me, "sure, we say: until death, everything is life.” To warn of not becoming overconfident and to be alert in every situation they say: "when you see a lion’s teeth, do not think it is smiling.”

People from china

People of China are married or unmarried, men and women; but all are young. The objective of emigration is to improve the conditions of life by means of working and saving. It would appear that all have proper documentation. In fact, a Chinese person without “papers” has never shown up at the Center, but when I comment on the fact that every person from China has papers, they say to me: “No! Many Chinese without papers.” Their destination is wherever there is work; it does not matter what country. They plan on returning to China, but in a very distant future: "Someday when I’m old.” They all work; generally in Chinese restaurants for Chinese bosses. They do not work for Spanish industrialists or domestic services. Their interest is economic, saving to someday put their own business here: "a store of cheap things."

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.
is Bucky paper clear?
so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
Do you know which machine is used to that process?

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
