Many history buffs and art collectors become interested in antiques at some point in the development of their interests. But what is an antique, exactly? Basically, anything that is old and collectible can be categorized as an antique. So how old is old? Of course, that is a hard number to define exactly, but generally speaking, objects about 100 years old or more can be considered antiques. And what makes something ‘collectible’? Burt the beloved puppet and best friend of Ernie on Sesame Street used to collect bottle caps. Even a collection like this, of an item so prosaic, can turn into an antique collection if those bottle caps eventually make it to age 100 without being trashed one day by Burt’s mom.
Generally speaking, however, antiques are more often objects that had some intrinsic worth even when they were new, such as a beautiful piece of furniture, or a special handmade dress, scarf or piece of jewelry. An object which was created with care and craftsmanship, especially in modern times when so much of what we come in contact with every day is mostly disposable junk, becomes more valuable and loved over time, rather than less.

Said also that Zoe had arranged the course of seasons, the movement of the stars and the fate of the men, i.e., life and death, pain and joy. Initially the chibchas did not understand what everything meant, because the understanding of them was like the child, for whom every day of the year and each time of day brings a new surprise.

On the other hand, spread the mass communication field, focused on the study of the characteristics and effects of the mass media and finally the study of communication as it occurs among humans. The study of human communication covers three major areas: to) syntactic. ((b) semantics, c) pragmatic. The first is about the problems relating to transmission: encoding, channels, capacity, noise, redundancy and other aspects of the language. The second attack the problems relating to the meaning; all shared information presupposes a semantic Convention. The third focuses on how communication affects behavior. 1.2 CONCEPT OF COMMUNICATION. Watzlawick and others (1976) define the communication behavioral as the pragmatic aspect of human communication theory.
Various units of communication, called them conduct and the message will be any communicational unit. A series of messages exchanged between people will receive the name of interaction. All behavior in a situation of interaction has a value of messages: words, silence, inaction, that influence on the others, thing which in turn respond to such messages and in fact equally communication. From the point of view of gestalt psychology, communication is based on observable behavior in the present, here and now. Awareness at present prevents the subject disrupt their communications with the internal system of if same or interpersonal system, noting three types of conduct or communication: driving (body language) symbolic (bodily events) and interpersonal (contact with other agencies).
