Robben perdió

June 30th, 2014 admin

Ganar con trampa es perder.

En el fútbol como en cualquier área de la vida, hay reglas. Muchas veces esas reglas son explícitas y muchas veces son inherentes. En el fútbol, el reglamento de competición tiene un espíritu de protección a la competencia honesta entre dos equipos. Dos equipos quieren ganar el partido, buscando anotar más goles que los que reciben. Todo dentro del marco de un reglamento que define la competición.

Presidente de Costa Rica tendrá las manos llenas ante retos económicos del país. ¿Qué sucederá en el 2014?

January 31st, 2014 admin

Las economías emergentes tiene de que preocuparse pues la Reserva Federal de Estados Unidos ha anunciado una nueva redución en su política de compra de Valores con Respaldo Hipotecario (Mortgage Backed Securities en Inglés). http://mkds.us/f1

Costa Rica cuenta con una economía de tercer mundo pero ciertamente considerada emergente y  principalmente enfocada hacia la venta de sevicios. El tipo de cambio de Costa Rica está recibiendo presión hacia la alza, o en otras palabras, presión de devaluación del colón con respecto al dólar. Cuando disminuye el valor de la moneda local, aumenta la inflación. El gobierno de Costa Rica tendrá que defender el tipo de cambio para prevenir la inflación por medio de venta de dólares de reservas (http://mkds.us/f2). De acuerdo a una nota del periódico La Nación http://mkds.us/f3, el precio del dólar, alcanzó su valor más alto en los últimos dos años. Esto es solo el comienzo de lo que está por venir. A pesar de que el Banco Central intervino vendiendo más de $5 Millones de USD, el tipo de cambio subió ¢6,55 en tan solo un día.

Seiki 4K with Mac OS X – Full Res at 30hz – SOLVED

September 25th, 2013 admin

The Problem with using a Seiki 4k LED Display (Ultra HD) with Mac OS X (Lion, Mountain Lion or perhaps even Mavericks).

Ok so if you are here, I am assuming that you are having the same problem that I was having. You are on a Mac, you decided to go ahead and buy the tempting Seiki 4k display and plug it to your Mac as a nice huge display. The only problem is that when you plugged it – it didn’t want to show you full 4k resolution(3840×2160) right? Don’t get alarmed you are about to fix it.

Now, if you go online, unfortunately there aren’t many people doing this kind of thing (Most are in PCs). Therefore if you were to Google a solution (like I did) you would get frustrated and angry and tired. Not to mention that you’ll invest an incredible amount of time understanding what is wrong.

Now, I am going to share with you the knowledge that my extensive research gave me – so that you don’t have to do what I did. Are you ready?

Question: Can I use my Seiki 4k Display (either 39″ or 50″) with my Mac(Mac Pro, MacBook Pro, etc) and have it display at its native resolution (3840 x 2160) at 30hz? The answer is yes. Let’s see how.

Online marketing shaped by the need to become

November 14th, 2011 admin

Once you get involved with analytics the first problem is to start thinking that since you can track behavior as a group of users, all of them are the same.

The more they wait to fill their desires the more stress they receive, until they release the tension by fulfilling the desires. Read the rest of this entry »
