La problemática de algunas estatuas

October 1, 2018

Ciudad del Cabo fue la primera. En marzo de 2015, un estudiante llamado Chumani Maxwele trajo un cubo lleno de mierda a la Universidad de Ciudad del Cabo, donde había una estatua de Cecil Rhodes, el magnate británico de los diamantes, político colonial y supremacista blanco declarado. “Aquí no hay historia colectiva, ¿dónde están nuestros héroes y antepasados?” Maxwele anunció. Salpicó el contenido del cubo sobre el monumento.

El incidente atrajo la atención nacional y en pocos días se había convertido en una protesta a gran escala. Los estudiantes cubrieron la estatua de Rodas con graffiti y bolsas de plástico, y prometieron manifestarse hasta que fuera retirada. La estatua ya había sido objeto de críticas anteriormente, pero ninguna de ellas había sido sostenida por la ira, a pesar de que no había duda de lo que representaba el monumento de Rodas. Erigida en 1934, ocupaba el centro mismo del campus, la Rodas de bronce que contemplaba la ciudad como si contemplara la creación: la suya y, quizás, la de Dios.

As we described earlier, electric motors could be defined as the heart of the industry, if we base ourselves on this mention we can say that the speed reducers are those that regulate the rhythm and speed required in each production process.

The gearboxes are designed based on gears, circular and toothed mechanisms with special geometries according to their size and function in each motor. But basically, a speed reducer is a transmission system characterized because its output speed is lower than the input speed. Kelvin gear box is one of the safest bets on this department.
