As Olimpíadas finalmente desembarcaram, nesta semana, no Rio de Janeiro e temos chance de ganhar medalhas em várias categorias…
Mas calma, não estou falado das Olimpíadas de Londres, nem viajei no tempo para 2016. Estou falando da 6ª Olimpíada Internacional de Astronomia e Astrofísica que está sendo realizada aqui no Rio de Janeiro, mais precisamente na cidade de Vassouras, e recebe participantes de 32 países de todos os continentes.
E para a nossa felicidade a abertura aconteceu nesta segunda-feira, 6 de agosto, no Planetário da Gávea. Um programa de planetário, em inglês, foi desenvolvido especialmente para o evento: “Céu indígena”. Essa viagem pela cultura de nossos índios foi ovacionada pelos participantes do evento.
A competição, que tem o reconhecimento da União Astronômica Internacional (IAU, sigla em inglês), foi realizada pela primeira vez na Tailândia, em 2007. De lá pra cá, a cada ano, uma sede diferente é escolhida. Passou por Indonésia, Irã, Polônia e China, para este ano chegar ao Brasil.
Em todas as edições houve participação de estudantes brasileiros. Eles são selecionados na Olimpíada Brasileira de Astronomia e Astronáutica (OBA), organizada pela Sociedade Astronômica Brasileira (SAB), que acontece todos os anos e é aberta a escolas públicas e particulares de qualquer lugar do Brasil.
Como somos o país sede temos direito a duas equipes. Isso aumenta as chances de ganhar uma inédita medalha de ouro. Apesar de ainda não terem conquistado o ouro, os brasileiros sempre tiveram bons desempenhos, com 14 medalhas já conquistadas entre prata e bronze, nas cinco edições passadas.
Três tipos de provas são realizadas com os estudantes: a observacional, onde eles devem mostrar seus conhecimentos sobre o céu; a prática, na qual, tal como um astrônomo, eles devem interpretar dados observacionais; e a teórica. com problemas de astronomia e astrofísica para resolverem.
Os estudantes estão, nesta semana, de 7 a 12 de agosto, reclusos num hotel, em Vassouras, totalmente isolados, sem poder usar celulares, redes sociais, e-mails. Tudo isso para que não haja nenhum tipo de benefício a nenhum grupo.
Nem mesmo os pais podem entrar em contato com eles sem a devida supervisão. Como são jovens e como tais, no fundo, são iguais em qualquer lugar do mundo. Imagino a felicidade da maioria de estar livres por uma semana dos pais corujas.
Boa sorte aos brasileiros! Boa sorte a todos!
I hurried into Learnguidepdf the local department Testprepwell store 200-105 test to grab1 some last minute Testprepwell Chirsmas gifts. I looked at all the people and grumbled2 to myself. Learnguidepdf I would be in here forever and Cisco APP WebEx Meetings I just had so much to do. Chirsmas was beginning to become such a drag. I kinda Testprepwell wished that I could just sleep through Chirsmas. But I hurried the best I could through all the people 200-105 test to the toy department. Once again I kind of mumbled3 to myself at the prices of all these toys, and Testprepwell wondered if the grandkids would even play whit4 them. Learnguidepdf I found myself in the doll aisle5. Out of the corner of my eye Inspect Icmp I saw a little boy about 5 Learnguidepdf holding a lovely doll.He kept touching6 Learnguidepdf her hair and he held her so gently. I could not seem to help myself. I just Cisco APP WebEx Meetings kept loking over at the Inspect Icmp little boy and wondered who the doll was for. I watched him turn to a woman and he 200-105 test called his aunt by name and said, “Are you sure I don’t have enough money?” She replied a bit impatiently, “You know that you Cisco APP WebEx Meetings don’t 200-105 test have enough Inspect Icmp money for it.” The aunt told the little boy not to Cisco APP WebEx Meetings go anywhere that she had to go and get some Learnguidepdf other things and would be back in a few minutes. And then she left the aisle. The boy continued 200-105 test to hold the doll. After 200-105 test a Cisco APP WebEx Meetings bit I asked the boy who the doll Learnguidepdf was for. He said, “It is the doll my sister wanted so badly for Chirsmas. She just knew that Santa would bring it. “I told him that maybe Santa was going to bring Cisco APP WebEx Meetings it . He said, “No, Santa can’t go where my 200-105 test sister is…. I have to give the doll to my Mama to take to her. Inspect Icmp “I asked him where his siter was. He looked at me with Cisco APP WebEx Meetings the saddest eyes and said, “She was gone to be with Jesus.
My Daddy says that Mamma is 200-105 test going to Testprepwell have to go be Inspect Icmp with Cisco APP WebEx Meetings her.” Cisco APP WebEx Meetings My heart nearly stopped beating. Then the boy looked at me again and said, “I told my Daddy to tell Testprepwell my Mama not to go yet. I told him to tell her to wait Learnguidepdf till Inspect Icmp I got back from the store.” Then he asked me if i wanted to see his picture. Testprepwell I told him I’d love to. He pulled out some picture he’d had taken at Learnguidepdf the front of the store. He said, “I want Learnguidepdf my Mama to take this with her so the dosen’t Learnguidepdf ever forget me. I love my 200-105 test Testprepwell Mama so Testprepwell very much and I wish she dind not have to leave me.But Daddy says she will Inspect Icmp need to be with my sister.” I saw that the little boy had lowered his head and had grown so qiuet. While he was not looking I reached into my purse and pilled out a handful of bills. I asked the little boy, “Shall we 200-105 test Testprepwell count that miney one more time?” He grew excited and said, “Yes,I just Inspect Icmp know it has to be enough.” So I slipped my money in Testprepwell 200-105 test with his and we began to count it . Of course it was plenty Learnguidepdf for the doll. He softly Learnguidepdf said, “Thank you Jesus for giving me enough money.” Then the boy 200-105 test said, “I just asked Jesus Testprepwell to give me enough 200-105 test money to buy this doll so Mama can take it with her to give my sister. And he heard my Testprepwell prayer. 200-105 test I wanted to ask him give for enough to buy Cisco APP WebEx Meetings my Mama a white rose, but I didn’t Learnguidepdf ask him, but he Testprepwell gave me enough to buy the doll and a rose for my Mama. She loves white rose so much. “In a Cisco APP WebEx Meetings few minutes the aunt Testprepwell came back and 200-105 test I wheeled Cisco APP WebEx Meetings my cart away. I could not keep from thinking about the little boy as I finished my shoppong in a ttally different spirit than when I had started. And I kept remembering a story I had seen in the newspaper several days earlier about a drunk driver hitting a car Inspect Icmp and killing7 a little girl and the Mother Inspect Icmp was in Testprepwell serious condition. Inspect Icmp The family was deciding on whether to remove the life support. Now surely this little boy did not Cisco APP WebEx Meetings belong with that story.Two days later I read in the paper where Inspect Icmp Learnguidepdf the family had disconnected the life support and Learnguidepdf the young Inspect Icmp Cisco APP WebEx Meetings woman 200-105 test had died. I could not forget the little boy and just kept wondering if the two were somehow connected. Later that day, I could not help Cisco APP WebEx Meetings myself and I went out and bought aome white roses and took them to the funeral Inspect Icmp home where Inspect Icmp the Inspect Icmp yough woman was .And there she was holding a lovely white rose, the beautiful doll, and the picture of the little boy Cisco APP WebEx Meetings in the store. I left there in tears, thier life changed forever. The love that little boy had for his little sisiter and his mother was overwhel. And in a split8 second a drunk driver had ripped9 the life of that little boy to pieces.
