Website Projects

While its hard to find time to blog these days, especially with the end of classes coming soon, it's not because I've stopped focusing on web development. In actuality, I've built several websites since January, both for school and others. Here's a look at some of the projects I've worked on, as well as a rumor about an upcoming blog for the St. Joseph province of Capuchin Franciscans.
Communication blog at 1communicationspot.wordpress.com
While I'm not taking a Web Development class this semester, I've had to build some in conjunction with other classes. In my Communications class, one of our projects was to build a site that helped people understand some of the abstract concepts and theories behind communications. It focused on Small Group, Verbal & Non-verbal, and some of the ways that communication is seen as a social science.

It's not a masterpiece of web design, but it's an example the creating websites doesn't take a lot of work, and certainly allows room for fun and creativity.


In my Systems Analysis and Design class, my group was also given the task of creating a website. This site, however, was not for us but for another club on campus at SXU. After spending time trying to decide who to work with, our group settled on Tangled Up, a knitting club that just started this semester. They have a significant number of members and have been great clients to work with. Our website isn't completely done, however we're almost to the final prototype and we hope to get the club's sign-off soon.


I've also made a few sites for friends and people who needed simple things. I'm happy to be getting more and more comfortable with web design since it's becoming more and more useful to the Church and to the Capuchins. 

For several months I've been working with a plan to have friars begin blogging as a way to encounter people on the Web and promote vocations. While there's still some time before this is officially rolled out by our Province, it's another example of how my computer skills are being used for the Capuchins.

No links for the site yet, but stay tuned!

LOS VALORES SUPREMOS DE LA TRASCENDENCIA HUMANA Y LA SOCIEDAD PERFECTA, DEBEN ORIENTAR LOS OBJETIVOS DEL CURRÍCULO ESCOLAR LAICO Y LA CATEQUESIS, A FIN DE ALCANZAR LA SUPRA HUMANIDAD. La relación entre la fe y la razón, la religión, la ciencia y la educación, se enmarca en el fenómeno espiritual de la trasformación humana abordado por la doctrina y la teoría de la trascendencia humana: conceptualizada por la sabiduría védica, instruida por Buda e ilustrada por Cristo; la cual concuerda con los planteamientos de la filosofía clásica y moderna, y las conclusiones comparables de la ciencia: (psicología, psicoterapia, logoterápia, desarrollo humano, etc.) __La paideia griega tenía como propósito educar a la juventud en la virtud (desarrollo de la espiritualidad) y la sabiduría (cuidado de la verdad), mediante la práctica continua de ejercicios espirituales (cultivo de sí), a efecto de prevenir y curar las enfermedades del alma. El educador, utilizando el discurso filosófico y la discusión de casos y ejemplos prácticos, más que informar trataba de inducir transformaciones buenas y convenientes para si mismo y la sociedad, motivando a los jóvenes a practicar las virtudes opuestas a los defectos encontrados en el fondo del alma, a efecto de adquirir el perfil de humanidad perfecta (cero defectos) __La vida, ejemplo y enseñanzas de Cristo coincide cien por ciento con el currículo y objetivo de la filosofía griega. Y por su autentico valor pedagógico, el apóstol Felipe introdujo en los ejercicios espirituales la paideia de Cristo (posteriormente enriquecida por San Basilio, San Gregorio, San Agustín y San Clemente de Alejandría, con el currículo y la metodología de los filósofos greco romanos: Aristóteles, Cicerón, Diógenes, Isócrates, Platón, Séneca, Sócrates, Marco Aurelio,,,), a fin de alcanzar la trascendencia humana (patente en Cristo) y la sociedad perfecta (Reino de Dios). Meta que no se ha logrado debido a que la mitología del Antiguo Testamento, al apartar la fe de la razón, castra mentalmente a sus seguidores extraviándolos hacia la ecumene abrahámica que conduce al precipicio de la perdición eterna (muerte espiritual)__ Es tiempo de rectificar retomando la paideia griega de Cristo, separando de nuestra fe el Antiguo Testamento y su teología fantástica que han impedido a los pueblos cristianos alcanzar la supra humanidad.
