My favorite movie is V for Vendetta

One of my favorite movies is V for Vendetta, is a series of 9 comics written by Alan Moore which became a movie in 2006. And this movie has been widely criticized as praised.

The sinopsis is: "The story is set in Britain in the near future and after a partial nuclear war, with much of the world destroyed. In this future, a fascist party in power in the UK. A mysterious anarchist revolutionary nicknamed "V ", hidden behind a Guy Fawkes mask, begins an elaborate, violent campaign to overthrow the government and inciting people to take an anarchist society."

The Director of movie is James McTeigue with Hugo Weaving (V) and Natalie Portman (Evey), and this movie is filmed in UK, in 2006.

I like this movie because is "based" on the real histories about the dictatorship in the world, with a charismatic, powerfull, cruel and tyrannical leader with hes opponents. And the most important thing about the movie is the ability of the main character to construct the opposition.

The lesson of the movie is to overcome fear and work together.

The Scientific Electronic Library Online

The link of the page is:

The Scientific Electronic Library Online or Scielo, is a website of scientific papers, reports and articles.

The library is an integral part of a project being developed by FAPESP (Fundação de Amparo à Pesquisa do Estado de São Paulo), in partnership with BIREME (the Latin American and Caribbean Center on Health Sciences Information) . Since 2002. This page is very important in order to obtain diferent topics about antropology, archaeology, biology etc.

The objetive of this site is "to implement an electronic virtual library, providing full access to a collection of serial titles, a collection of issues from individual serial titles, as well as to the full text of articles. The access to both serial titles and articles is available via indexes and search forms".

I visit this website very often, actually every week to obtain different information about archaeology, the news publications in the world and whatever I need.

This website is very important to me, because I download many papers of different topics about archaeology, theory, and themes that I like such as Gender Archaeology. In the university library there is no information about this theme, and in Chile there are very few studies.
