About Me[edit]

Name: OMAR GARCIA ¡BUENAS A TODOS! HELLO EVERYBODY LIKE IT SAYS ABOVE MY NAME IS OMAR, I'M 22 YEARS YOUNG. JUST GOT BACK FROM A SUMMER STUDY ABROAD TRIP IN OAXACA, MEXICO WHERE I MET AND WORKED SHORTLY WITH THE UNIVERSITY(UABJO)CHEMISTRY DEPT THAT COLLABORATED WITH HSU TO BUILD AN ON-CAMPUS WASTE-WATER TREATMENT SYSTEM. I AM AN INTERNATIONAL STUDIES MAJOR WITH A CONCENTRATION ON LATIN AMERICA, I AM ALSO A SPANISH MAJOR AS WELL. IM TAKING THIS CLASS AS A G.E., BUT I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN INTERESTED IN APPROPRIATE TECH FOR MANY REASONS BUT ONE IS TO IMPROVE OUR EXISTENCE ON OUR BEAUTIFUL PLANET NOW AND FOR OUR FUTURE. OTHER THAN THAT, I LIKE THIS CLASS SO FAR PARTLY BECAUSE LONNY IS SOME WHAT OF A COOL NERD AND HE HAS SOME SWEET SIDEBURNS. CIAO

Interests in Technology and the Environment[edit]

AS A NATIVE FLUENT SPANISH SPEAKER I AM INTERESTED IN LEARNING ABOUT WAYS I CAN IMPACT IN ANY WAY SHAPE OR FORM THE SPANISH SPEAKING WORLD USING KNOWLEDGE/RESOURCES FROM THIS CLASS AND OR APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGY/ENVIRONMENT IN GENERAL. TO BE SPECIFIC, ORAL AND DOCUMENT TRANSLATION FROM ENGLISH TO SPANISH/SPANISH TO ENGLISH IS A BIG INTEREST. APPROPRIATE TECH/ENVIRONMENT EDUCATION IN A SPANISH SPEAKING COUNTRY IS ANOTHER INTEREST.

I'VE ALWAYS WANTED TO KNOW MORE INFO ON SOLAR PANELS FOR A PRIVATE RESIDENCE AS WELL AS FOR A BUSINESS OR COMMERCIAL USE. IN ADDITION, FINDING A GOOD WORKSHOP FOR INSTALLATION OF SOLAR PANELS WOULD BE BENEFICIAL.

ONE OTHER THING I AM INTERESTED IN IS LOOKING AT AUTONOMOUS SOCIETIES LIKE SPAIN AND SOME COMMUNITIES IN CHIAPAS, MEXICO. TAKING A CLOSE LOOK AT THE TECH/ENVIRONMENT DECISIONS THAT MADE THEM BECOME A SUCCESSFUL SOCIETY AND THEN APPLYING RELEVANT KNOWLEDGE FROM THESE SOCIETIES TO RELATED PARTS OF OUR SOCIETY.

Experience in Technology and/or the Environment[edit]

TOOK THE APPROPRIATE TECHNOLOGY INTRO COURSE I THINK IT WAS CALLED AT 104 OR 114 BACK IN THE DAY, WHERE I WORKED AT THE OLD CCAT HOUSE TO CLEAN UP A HILLSIDE FOR FUTURE PLANTING. I ALSO AIDED IN ADDITIONAL CONSTRUCTION OF THE COB BENCH, I DONT KNO IF ITS STILL THERE.

DONT KNOW IF IT COUNTS AS EXPERIENCE BUT I WORKED SHORTLY THIS PAST SUMMER ON A STUDY ABROAD TRIP IN OAXACA, MEXICO WHERE I WORKED TRANSLATING AT THE UNIVERSITY(UABJO)CHEMISTRY DEPT. THIS IS ALSO THE DEPARTMENT WHERE COLLABORATION WAS DONE WITH HSU TO BUILD AN ON-CAMPUS WASTE-WATER TREATMENT SYSTEM.

DONT HAVE MUCH EXPERIENCE IN TECHNOLOGY AND THE ENVIRONMENT.
