La presente obra contribuye a este todavía limitado cuerpo intelectual. Jorge Renier Brito Santana, Babá Efún, y ahora Awó Orúnmilá Babá Ejiogbé, nos conduce en un mágico recorrido por el mundo del Curamagüey; nos deja ver las tradiciones de un pueblo matancero y un enclave étnico-religioso que fue establecido por esclavos africanos, en su mayor parte lucumíes, a finales del siglo XIX. Producto de historia oral, esta obra recuenta el origen de un linaje lucumí matancero. A la vez, nos presenta la oportunidad de conocer más a fondo a personajes históricos que a través de la memoria colectiva de un pueblo y las páginas de este libro recuperan vida, permitiéndonos alcanzar más allá de los meros recuentos de las prácticas que diferencian a este enclave matancero de las tradiciones habaneras y de otras áreas de la isla.
Support Math with Materials in Your Home
Six fun and simple activities to support your child's math readiness.
Support Math Readiness Through Music
Even the youngest of children can respond to music and the mathematical principles behind it. Here are three musical elements that relate to math and activity ideas to try at home.
Support Math Readiness Through Math Talk
The more parents talk with their child about math at home, the more a child’s mind is stimulated to think about math. Here are five ways to use math talk with your child.
Math Talk with Infants and Toddlers
Children develop math concepts and skills very early in life. How we talk with infants and toddlers about math ideas like more, empty, and full—matters.
Preschoolers are Natural Mathematicians
Preschoolers aren’t yet ready to memorize multiplication tables, but that doesn’t mean they cannot learn and explore math concepts. Try these ideas at home to help your preschooler explore math.
The correlation between DNA methylation and chromatin structure, as it relates to transcriptional activity, is demonstrated by the observation that there are several proteins, that bind to methylated CpGs but not to unmethylated CpGs, whose functions are integrated into transcriptional regulation. There are currently 15 genes in the human genome that encode proteins that bind to methyl-CpG in DNA. These 15 proteins are divided into 3 subfamilies identified by structural similarities. These sub-families are the methyl binding domain (MBD) proteins, the methyl-CpG-binding zinc finger proteins (also called the Kaiso family), and the SRA domain ( S ET and R ING finger domain A ssociated) containing proteins. The SET domain is so-called because it was first identified in three Drosophila proteins called S uppressor of variegation variant 3-9 [Su(var)3-9], E nhancer of zeste, and T rithorax. The RING domain is a zinc-finger-like domain which gets its name from the term R eally I nteresting N ew G ene.
