Future Kia Picanto

It was playing at the Kia Picanto a renewal, and it seems that this will occur within a few months at the next Geneva Motor Show 2011. His update will be deep enough, and although at the moment the data are quite scarce, are worth as evidence the following sketches that anticipate the new design that will look the urbanite Korean. This second generation Kia Picanto 2012 will launch in Europe in the second half of the next 2011, and its design suit the latest trends seen in Kia, adopting common brand image and taking a step forward in quality. The first generation of the model, still on sale, was a relative success for Kia, fulfilling the expectations of those who sought a simple, cheap and vehicle intended to get around the city but without having to give up a more or less pleasant design and certain comforts, offered at their highest finishes. That Yes, due to his seniority to barely fit in the current range of the Korean manufacturer. And is that the leap from quality of Kia in the majority of models launched in recent years has been very large, making that most veteran brand vehicles seem older than really are.

Use as an example the recent Kia Optima (not yet available in Europe) or Kia Sportage, and compared with previous generations. With the Kia Picanto probably pass much of the same thing, although we can not expect an urban premium, but a well done vehicle of reduced dimensions, with greater security and at popular prices, unpretentious too exorbitant. We do not know if it will be approved for four or five seats, or what will bring under the arm or which engines to be mounted, but the logical thing would be an evolution of the current 1.0 and 1.1 liters of petrol, adapted in search of a reduction in the consumption. Neither Motors three-cylinder diesel engines cannot be excluded, therefore. Its design has been done by the European division of Kia in Frankfurt under the baton of Peter Schreyer, and guess similarities (especially in its front) with the compact MPV Kia come.

Perhaps but a deeper root of this boarding totalizer can also be found in the Positivismo de Comte. If Tobias Barreto denounced the fisicalismo in the sociological theory of Comte (accusing it to want to make of sociology a social physics) 1, Slvio Romero, in reply favorable to this science, searched a half term, alleging that the scientific nature of sociology was not identical of natural sciences. Valley to stand out that, in ' ' Course of Positiva&#039 Philosophy; ' (1830-42), Augustus Comte all classified and systemize the body of sciences developed until then. Its criteria of scientific hierarquizao had obeyed the two basic principles, crossing them enter itself: the beginning of simplicity and the generality, both observed in the object of study of each science. In the base of the scientific pyramid that it established met, before everything, the Mathematics, rank that science some would surpass it in terms of simplicity and generality; to Sociology fit the rank highest, because its object of study consisted of being most complex and less general? namely, the social relations. The conviviality of Slvio Romero with the Positivismo de Comte occurred, over all, in phase tenra of its intellectual life; not delaying to be dimmed by the choice that made for the evolucionismo of Spencer. In any way, of Comte the sociology of Slvio Romero has as mark its inclination to compose a general picture of modern sciences. If, in this aspect, it did not suffer direct influence from Comte (what it is doubted), did not escape of such necessity? if it did not see it strengthened in spirit – when it adopted the sociology of Spencer and, later, of Le Play.

For this Comte task human being conceives the Philosophy as a branch of knowing, whose function would be mere to classify sciences. Slvio Romero followed it the steps. The sergipano thinker sketched its classification of sciences, therefore, inhaled not only in evolucionismo of Spencer, but in the comteano positivismo.

Parana River

The Government of Fernando Lugo will reaffirm before Brazil his intention to freely dispose of their surplus energy from the hydroelectric power plant Itaipu on the Parana River, announced Ricardo Canese, Advisor to energy issues. Lugo said on Tuesday in Asuncion who requested a bilateral meeting with Lula, apart from Mercosur, to reiterate our orders raised last August. We know the ballast of the asymmetries claimed by Paraguay and Uruguay, argentino-uruguayas relations frozen by a trash can and fronts of storm between Brazil and Paraguay by the Tal Itaipu Dam as it says bilaterals.org through ABC Digital, in recent years, conflicts between the four partners of the block have multiplied despite the repeated political will for integration that express their leaders.Even the ideological coincidences that exist today between the Presidents of Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay and Paraguay have sufficient to attenuate conflicts which, according to analysts, end up hampering integration. Argentina Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, Brazilian Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, Uruguay Tabare Vazquez and the Fernando Lugo of Paraguay are all under the umbrella of moderate left that has been opened in South America during the last years. Aspect which considers President Hugo Chavez important and where the want to act through der a venezuela that can bring you great collaboration through petroleum, energy very important factor for the South regiondel. However, Fernandez doesn’t speak with Vazquez since he took office, in December 2007, and maintains relations with Uruguay in the freezer, due to construction on Uruguayan soil of a wastepaper basket that reject the Argentines claiming environmental risks in their territory. Discord by the Finnish company Botnia bin being dragged since 2003 and since that date have worsened, to the point of arriving before the International Court in the Hague, has decided yet where the contentious. The impact of this conflict on the integration became more visible in last October, when it handed over the borders of Mercosur.
