Manuela Sáenz
Doña Manuela Sáenz y Aizpuru (December 27, 1797 – November 23, 1856) was an Ecuadorian revolutionary heroine of South America who supported the revolutionary cause by gathering information, distributing leaflets, and protesting for women's rights. Manuela received the Order of the Sun ("Caballeresa del Sol" or 'Dame of the Sun'), honoring her services in the revolution.
Sáenz married a wealthy English merchant in 1817 and became a socialite in Lima, Peru. This provided the setting for involvement in political and military affairs, and she became active in support of revolutionary efforts. Leaving her husband in 1822, she soon began an eight-year collaboration and intimate relationship with Simón Bolívar that lasted until his death in 1830. After she prevented an 1828 assassination attempt against him and facilitated his escape, Bolívar began to call her "Libertadora del libertador" ("liberator of the liberator"). Manuela's role within the revolution after her death generally was overlooked until the late twentieth century, presently she is recognized as a feminist symbol of the 19th century wars of independence.
These guests shared military secrets about the ongoing revolution with her, and, in 1819, when Simón Bolívar took part in the successful liberation of New Granada, Manuela Sáenz became an active member in the conspiracy against the viceroy of Perú, José de la Serna e Hinojosa during 1820
In 1822, Sáenz left her husband and traveled to Quito, where she met Simón Bolívar. She exchanged love letters with him, and visited him while he moved from one country to another. Manuela supported the revolutionary cause by gathering information, distributing leaflets, and protesting for women's rights. As one of the most prominent female figures of the wars for independence, Manuela received the Order of the Sun ("Caballeresa del Sol" or 'Dame of the Sun'), honoring her services in the revolution. During the first months of 1825 and from February to September 1826, she lived with Bolívar near Lima, but as the war continued, Bolívar was forced to leave. Manuela later followed him to Bogotá. On September 25, 1828, mutinous officers attempted to assassinate Bolívar, but with Manuela's help he was able to escape, which made him later call her "Libertadora del Libertador".
Bolívar left Bogotá in 1830 and died in Santa Marta from tuberculosis while he was in transit, leaving the country to exile. He had made no provision for Manuela. Francisco de Paula Santander, who returned to power after Bolívar's death then exiled Manuela. She went to Jamaica for the early years of her exile
Manuela died in Paita, on November 23, 1856, during a diphtheria epidemic. Her body was buried in a communal, mass grave and her belongings were burned

TASK 3     WEEKLY 3
NAME: ………………………………………………...            COURSE: 3rd. BGU – BTA         CLASS: “A, B, C, D, E”

HOW TO MAKE A COMPOS BIN.
Total Time: 2 hrs
Skill Level: Intermediate.
Compost is the secret to many gardeners' thriving plants. When you save certain organic items meant for the trash—such as banana peels, apple cores, leaves, and grass clippings—you can turn them into a nutrient-rich medium that will transform your garden. With a sturdy vessel, some organic scraps, and minimal cultivation, you'll be on your way to making your own compost to feed your plants.

What You'll Need
Equipment / Tools
- Work gloves
- Drill and bits
- Saw or utility knife
- Wire cutters
- Gardening shears
- Hammer
- Garden fork or shove

Materials
- Plastic storage bin (18 gallons or larger)
- Garbage bag or weed cloth
- Bungee cord
- Chicken wire
- Garden stakes
- Metal rebar
- Zip ties

1.       Complete the steps that explains how to do it.

Pick       Select         Determine     Cut off        Begin         Place

a. ………………………. a location for your composting bin. ………………….. an area that is close to your garden yet out of sight to maintain a manicured appearance. Lay down a garbage bag or weed cloth in the selected area.
b. ………………………. a plastic storage container to be your composter. It should be at least 18 gallons and include a tightly fitting lid.
c. Put on your work gloves. ……………………….. the bottom of the container with a hand saw or utility knife (optional). Then, using your drill and a large drill bit, drill holes all over the outside of the bin to create airflow. If you chose not to cut off the bottom, make sure to drill ample holes in it.
d. …………………. your composter on top of the garbage bag or weed cloth.
e. …………………. filling the bin with appropriate organic waste. If animals frequent your yard, secure the top of the bin with a bungee cord

Think of what happens to the fruits and vegetables that fall off plants. They fall to the ground and naturally start to decompose in their environment! A compost bin helps organic waste to do the same.

2.       Match the words with their meanings.
Peels.                  break down or cause to break down into component elements or simpler                                     constituents
Fertilizer.            the outside part of a fruit or vegetable.
Worms.               product to put in the soil to help plants grow healthier.
Decompose.        small, soft, invertebrate animals that live in the ground.

3.       Draw a diagram that goes along with your instructions.  Label each part of the compost bin.

Have you heard of the term Pachamama? Do you know what it means? Where do you think the word comes from?
The Pachamama is usually translated into English as “Mother Earth”, although the more literal translation would be “World Mother”. She is an Andean indigenous goddess. She is worshipped in the region of Tawantinsuyu, the former Incan Empire, which now includes the Andean regions of Ecuador, Bolivia, Chile, Peru, and northern Argentina.
In Incan mythology, she presides over planting and harvesting crops and can cause earthquakes. She is also the goddess of fertility. In the Quechua cosmovision, the four principles – Water, Earth, Sun, and Moon – come from her. She is the mother of the Sun god Inti, and the Moon goddess Mama Killa. She is offered many sacrifices, especially animals like llamas and alpacas. Rituals to honor her are celebrated all year, but especially in August, which is the coldest month of the year in the southern Andes.
With the arrival of the Spaniards, in some regions of the Andes, the Pachamama was replaced by the Virgin Mary. But those who believe in the Pachamama can maintain a balanced, reciprocal relationship with her. It is said that if people treat the Pachamama well and offer her the best sacrifices, then she in return will give them a good harvest.

Answer the following questions in complete sentences based on the reading.
1. What is the most common translation for Pachamama in English?
___________________________ ___________________________ ___________________________
2. What powers does the Pachamama have?
___________________________ ___________________________ ___________________________
 3. What do people offer to the Pachamama?
___________________________ ___________________________ ___________________________
4. How do people maintain a good relationship with the Pachamama?

Christmas in Brazil
When people who live in the northern hemisphere think of Christmas, they think of Santa Claus, Christmas trees, reindeers and snow. Snow? Not in Brazil. There, it is summer and it is hot as it can be. Poor Santa in his red winter clothes! He should wear shorts, a t-shirt, and flip flops! But how do families get ready to celebrate Christmas day? Most of them decorate a fake Christmas tree. They hang wreaths on doors and put Christmas lights on windows and balconies. Secret Santa is also very popular in Brazil. It is a game where friends exchange presents anonymously. It is a cheap and fun way to give presents to your loved ones. After dinner, children go to bed to wait for Santa Claus, like many other children around the world.
