I need to improve the way I communicate in several languages for career advancement and personal development. If you want to improve your conversational abilities in Spanish, maybe I am your potential language partner this summer: https://www.italki.com/user/4062246

I am interested in practising FRENCH, ITALIAN, PORTUGUESE or ENGLISH with native or proficient speakers, in the form of Whatsapp, Skype or any other app or software designed for it. It would be my pleasure to assist you in the process of speaking Spanish like a Spaniard in exchange.

Because energy-efficiency technologies are where the job growth is. If the US does not build the new energy technology advancements, it will lose its competitive advantage to countries that will build them.

Lisboa. El 1 de noviembre de 1755, Día de Todos los Santos , mientras se celebraban misas con decenas de miles de fieles en las 40 iglesias, los 90 conventos y los 130 oratorios con que contaba entonces la ciudad, sobrevino un terremoto de 8,5 a 9,0 grados en la escala de Richter. De todas las capitales europeas, esta parecía el último lugar sobre el que se podía desatar la ira divina, pues era una ciudad rebosante de devoción. Tras el sismo de seis minutos, un terrible tsunami llegó a Lisboa hora y media más tarde. La cantidad ingente de velas que se habían encendido para la festividad, al caer, desataron cientos de incendios.

Sólo en Lisboa acabaría con la vida de 20.000 a 50.000 habitantes de los 250.000 que tenía la ciudad entonces. En España se estima que hubo algo más de un millar muertos, la mayoría en Cádiz, Huelva y Coria, según el libro del Ministerio de Fomento "Los efectos en España del terremoto de Lisboa".

To say that #Pritzker #PritzkerPrize 2017 recipients (Aranda, Pigem, Vilalta) are unknown is a gross exaggeration. They are not starchitects but their work can be found in any catalogue of contemporary international architecture .
