Rail Transport In Argentina

If we agree that culture is: everything the man does, creates or complies, we can affirm that argentina’s culture is everything people did, made, created, created, conformed and comprise, within the limits of our territory. In this vital fluence argentina, we believe that there is a place for the railway, from that some visionaries, in the middle of the last century, believed that it had to incorporate the train as a tool for progress, and put into effect a 30 August 1857. Although it is patently obvious, the development of the railroad, could not escape the ups and downs of our eventful history, nor can escape our present and our future, even as complex as the past preceding it. National and planetary events influenced on the railway, and this in his work, made its contribution to the Argentine becoming. Much has been written or researched on the railways in the country. And much of what was said has formulated it in controversial contexts. To study the topic since the beginning of the Decade of the seventies, it seems to us display different points of approaches to the issue. Not without clarifying that the enunciation order does not indicate any precedence.

Among these approaches are: eminently ideological type, type entrepreneur, technical, aesthetic types and Union types. Since the schemes often leave large segments of the reality outside, worth clarifying that these approaches are often intermixed in the course of events. Only through careful reading and/or observation, the subtle nuances can be noted. In addition, our experiences and studies, suggest us that there is a marked difference in perceptions of those who are linked to the railway work and those who think outside the same. And the remarkable thing is the divorce between the views ordinary people saved (particularly the most veteran) and those who think, influenced by the literature or media. More cultural phenomena, not born instantly, but they are developed over time, spanning several generations.

History Of Florence

When Florence was just beginning to find its independence in the 11th century, urban merchants formed a Societas Mercatorun, a sort of guild or fraternity, many of whose members in comne Florence (the ruling council of the city which was founded in 1115). With Societas time was replaced by Arte di Calimana, universal guild, which included most of the merchants and artisans. As the division was formed seven major occupations of large guilds. In 1289 Florence was founded 14 small guilds, which covered the mid-level craftsmen. Members of these guilds actually ruled Florence during the next 400 years. The elective system was organized as follows. Leaflets with the names of the selected members of the guild, which, according to guild members were able to administrative management, were placed in eight leather pouches, stored in the church of Santa Croce. Then, from these bags was pulled out at random nine leaflets with the names: six of the large number of guilds, two of the small number of guilds, and one for the post of leader or gonfaloniere.

These elected representatives, called Priors, formed the government, or the Signoria. It government functioned for a short period – two months. This period has been established in order to avoid corruption and usurpation of power. Power was limited to the various committees of the Signoria. It also takes into account opinion of an independent judge, who was named Podesta of Florence. This judge is usually invited from out of town and was an arbitrator in dispute resolution. In times of acute crises Signoria convene parliament or assembly, which consisted of all males under the age of 14 years. However, this system was also influenced. In practice, political groups or individual influential personality arranged matters so that only pleasing their candidates were elected to important administrative positions.
