          Una Vez Más la ONU Rechaza el bloqueo de los Estados Unidos contra Cuba        
Por vigésima ocasión la Asamblea General de las Naciones Unidas (O.N.U.) rechazó el bloqueo yanqui contra Cuba. 186 paises votaron en contra de la política hostil norteamericana que niega que sus productos
lleguen a nuestro pequeño en dimensión archipiélago, ni producto alguno
de cualquier país que elabore cualquier nación y que contenga algún elemento
hecho en U.S.A pueda ser negociado con la Patria de José Martí.
Solo Palaus, pequeño país como siempre acompañó al soberbio imperio.
Y 6 abstenciones, es decir no votaron ni a favor ni en contra, 6 estados miembro de la Organización Mundial. Se lavaron las manos como Poncio
Pilatos para no caer en desgracia con los Estados Unidos.
Pero la batalla continúa. Aquí seguimos: "Hasta la Victoria Siempre"
Y aunque somo pobres el corazón de los cubanos es feliz cuando puede
compartir lo que su generosidad e inteligencia crean.
Nuestros médicos y enfermeras son los fieles acompañantes de los pueblos
en desgracia y nada piden a cambio, sino decirle a nuestro pueblo que
el dolor de los humildes, sus enfermedades y tragédias las seguiran curando
y compartiendo como el sueño luminoso de los inderrotables Próceres que
construyen nuestro Socialismo . Son los Sueños de Marti y Fidel.
Nuestro Planeta podra sobrevivir a cualquier catastrofe de la naturaleza
si todos nos unimos para salvarlo. Ojala que el anhelo de Cuba toque los
sentimientos de Barac Obama y este comprenda que la politica con la que conduce a los Estados Unidos puede cambiar a tiempo para impedir el holocausto de la Madre Tierra.
de la humanidad. El puede ser tambien un Medico Salvçebn

          Travel to Barcelona: A Country within a Country        
The distinctive regional culture of Barcelona is largely due to geography and a plentitude of national pride and elitism. Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia, one of Spain's 17 semi-autonomous states. The regional language is Catalan, along with the national language of Castilian Spanish. There has long been pressure from the Catalonian government and nationalists to earn complete autonomy from Spain. Consequently, the exclusive culture can be difficult to adjust to and there is significant animosity towards foreigners around the main tourist street of Las Ramblas. To thoroughly enjoy the sweet life and gentle hospitality of Barcelona, leave this busy area and explore the many diverse districts, endless with possibility.

Café Life and Nightlife for the Night Owl
Barcelona is truly a city that never sleeps, particularly during the warm Mediterranean summers. Avoid standing out like a sore thumb by eating dinner when the locals do: after 10 p.m. It is common to see children, grandparents and the family dog gathering at the outdoor cafes at these hours when the day's work is finished and time for friends and family has commenced. Since Barcelona hosted the Olympics in 1992, the city has been revamped with visitor friendly attractions such as the massive Olympic Village, a string of swanky restaurants, state-of-the-art nightclubs and boutiques along the beach. Most nightclubs do not get going until after 1 a.m. and club-goers typically wander out onto the beach around 5:30 to watch the sunrise over the Mediterranean.

A Modernista Mecca
The architectural wonders of Barcelona will keep even the most novice eye bewildered and intrigued. Antoni Gaudi decorated Barcelona with his treasures of modernism as a painter on a canvas. The grand boulevard of Passeig de Gracia is lined with elaborately adorned Casa Batllo and Casa Mila, both with the most intricate rooftops known to modern architecture. Arguably the most stunning of Gaudi's work is the Temple Expiatori de la Sagrada Familia. Each of the church's facades are meticulously designed with different themes and styles combining nature with religion and the soaring towers topped with mosaic grapes are built around a conch-like coiled staircase that visitors may choose to take instead of the elevator. Another tribute to Barcelona's artistic heritage is the Palau da la Musica Catalana. A view of the glass and mosaic inverted chandelier on the ceiling of the theater is alone worth the visit. Daily tours are offered in addition to the regularly held musical performances. Afterward, get lost in the tiny twisting passages of the surrounding historic Gothic Quarter.
Traveling Barcelona Right Not Your Weekend Visit

It is best to avoid traveling to Spain in August, when most of the locals (and most of Mediterranean Europe) take their vacations. Chances are that the restaurant you wanted to visit will be closed and museums will have extremely curtailed hours. August can also be uncomfortably hot.

Barcelona should be traveled with care and patience. The only disappointment visitors have is the inability to see all of the city's landmarks and hidden corners in a realistic amount of time.

          Kimmo Tiilikaisen ja kumppaneiden Metsähallituslaki- vedätys        

Metsähallituslaki siirtää saamelaisten kotiseutualueella valtavia maa- ja vesialueita valtion tuottovaatimusten alle ja helpottaa alueiden liiketaloudellista käyttöä. Hallituspuolueet eivät ole halunneet myöntää näiden ns. tasesiirtojen johtavan kovempaan talouskäyttöön alueilla joita aiemmin siihen ei ole osoitettu tai jolla talouskäyttö on ollut hyvin vähäistä.  On kuultu vain se ”selitys”, että ratkaisuilla ”selkiytetään” tilannetta: ”mikään ei muutu” on kuultu useaan otteeseen.

Tänään ministeri Tiilikainen sai viimein myönnettyä eduskunnassa, että ”ainakaan tämän hallituksen aikana ei mitään huolestuttavaa tapahdu”.  Tulihan se sieltä.

Kyse on keskustan ideologiasta. Rahat irti luonnosta – mutta vain isoilla koneilla. Porotalouden ja luontomatkailun työpaikat ja tuotot eivät kepulle kelpaa. Nämä elinkeinot kun eivät kaada puuta, eivät myy rantoja mökkitonteiksi ja rakenna tuulipuistoja ja niiden vaatimia teitä, eivät aja rekoilla ja kaivinkoneilla. Raha on kunnollista vasta sitten, kun sen tuottamisesta jää kunnolliset jäljet.

Sen verran kuitenkin Tiilikaistakin hävettää – ilmeisesti raju kansalaispalaute, mm. 130 000 nimen adressi, että tämän hallituksen kehtaamisen raja menee tässä. Nyt avataan mahdollisuudet. Sitten myöhemmin toteutetaan.

Antti Haataja erittelee blogissaan perusteellisesti asiaa. Kannattaa lukea ja katsoa kauniit kuvat. Haatajan blogi kertoo siitä miten alueita uhkaa rakentaminen, tuulivoimapuistot ja muu raju maankäyttö.

Mutta tasesiirrot haisevat myös hakkuille. Ensin Inarin retkeilyalueella ja muissa virkistysmetsissä, ja myöhemmin luontaistalousalueilla, joilla Metsähallituksen julkaisemien tietojen mukaan on metsämaata noin 26 000 hehtaaria. Puustoa niissä saman verran kuin Inarissa nyt metsätalouskäytössä olevilla mailla keskimäärin, jopa hieman ylikin. (Lähde: Ylä-Lapin luonnonvarasuunnitelma, s. 34, 45)

Metsähallitus ja keskustan edustajat ovat hokeneet lain valmistelun aikana ettei mikään tule hakkuissa muuttumaan koska Ylä-Lapissa toimitaan jatkossakin ns. luonnonvarasuunnitelmien mukaan. Höpsänkeikkaa. Luonnonvarasuunnitelmat ovat Metsähallituksen omaa toimintaa. Kysymystenasettelut ja lähtökohdat asettaa Metsähallitus, lopputulokset päättää Metsähallitus, ja pohjana ovat tietenkin valtio-omistajan taloudelliset odotukset. Nyt Ylä-Lapissa on voimassa suunnitelma vuoteen 2021 asti. Sitten tehdään uusi. Sen perustana ovat kasvaneet tuotto-odotukset.

Omistaja ei aiemmin halunnut tuottoa, mutta nyt haluaa – mutta mikään ei muka muutu?
Muuttuuko sellaisen alueen käyttö, jossa on hakattavaa puustoa, ja tuottotavoite, verrattuna tilanteeseen jossa tuottotavoitetta ei ollut?

Metsää Inarin retkeilyalueella, siirtyy metsätalouden tuottovaatimuksen alle

Kuva: Inarin retkeilyalueen metsää Juutuanjoen- Otsamotunturin maisemissa. Tämä alue siirtyy luontopalvelujen hallinnasta metsätalouden liiketoiminnan taseeseen. Kuva (c) Matti Snellman/Greenpeace

Metsähallitus ja Inarin metsäpaliskunnat tekivät 2009-2010 ns. metsäsopimukset, joilla rajattiin merkittävä määrä vanhoja metsiä 20 vuoden ajaksi hakkuiden ulkopuolelle. Metsähallitus ei kuitenkaan suostunut tinkimään Ylä-Lapin alueella kokonaishakkuumäärästä, vaan uusitussa luonnonvarasuunnitelmassa hakkuumäärä pidettiin ennellaan. Tästä seurasi, että kun sama puumäärä revitään pienemmältä alueelta, jäljet näkyvät entistä selvimmin. Tämä on viime aikoina näkynyt paliskuntien ja Metsähallituksen ristiriitoina. Muddusjärven paliskunta on aiheellisesti huomauttanut, että sopimukset eivät olleet Metsähallitukselle avoin valtakirja koventaa hakkuita ja unohtaa normaalit lakisääteiset neuvotteluvelvoitteet.

Uusi laki ja tasesiirrot eivät tätä helpota. Niillä pahennetaan tilannetta entisestään. Biotalous on merkillinen ideologia. Se sahaa sellupuun himossa omaa oksaansa. Saamelaiskäräjät kertoi tänään pyytäneensä YK:ta reagoimaan Metsähallituslaki- farssiin. Näitä uutisia nähdään varmaankin jatkossa lisää.

          Valtion metsäomaisuutta ollaan järjestelemässä aiempaa rajumpaan talouskäyttöön        

Eduskunta päättää lähiviikkoina uudesta metsähallituslaista. Valtion maa- ja vesiomaisuutta järjestellään aiempaa rajumpaan talouskäyttöön. Uudistuksessa kärsivät luonto, virkistyskäyttö ja saamelaisten luontaiselinkeinot, esimerkiksi poronhoito.

Edellisen hallituksen saamelaisten maaoikeuksiin jo kirjoittamat parannukset on jätetty lakiesityksestä tylysti pois, eikä niitä ilmeisesti olla palauttamassa edes eduskunnan perustuslakivaliokunnan huomautuksen jälkeenkään.


Pois siis alkuperäiskansan vaikutusmahdollisuudet, ja sitten maata jalostamaan: pohjoisen virkistysmetsistä 40 000 hehtaarin alueella, esimerkiksi Saariselällä ja Inarinjärven rannoilla odotetaan jatkossa nykyistä kovempaa rahallista tuottoa. Keskustapäättäjät ovat ”rauhoitelleet pelkoja ja väärinkäsityksiä” väittämällä ettei mikään muutu lain myötä. Vastaamatta on jäänyt kysymys, miksi tuotto-odotuksia vaativia ns. tasesiirtoja sitten tehdään. Rahallista tuottoa ei tule muuten kuin kuin metsää hakkaamalla, myymällä rantoja ja tunturinreunoja mökkitonteiksi ja rahastamalla tavalla tai toisella matkailua, retkeilyä ja kalastusta.

Virkistysmetsät ovat vasta alkua. 330 000 hehtaaria saamelaisalueen maata, joka tähän asti on osoitettu pääosin porotalouden ja luontaiselinkeinojen käyttöön ilman tuottovaatimuksia, aiotaan siirtää tasekirjoihin luotavaan uuteen erään. Tarkoitus on helpottaa myöhemmin tehtäviä varsinaisia siirtoja talouskäyttöön. Poliitikot kiistävät, mutta Metsähallituksen luontopalvelujen johtajan mukaan ”…luontaistalousalueiden osalta tasesiirrot voivat jatkossa lisätä niiden liiketoiminnallista käyttöä.”

Inarissa on yllättäen tullut ilmi myös Metsähallituksen haluttomuus tai kyvyttömyys noudattaa vuonna 2010 solmittuja metsäsopimuksia, joilla aikanaan rauhoitettiin kiistat porotalouden ja hakkuiden välillä. Poronhoitajien mukaan Metsähallitus on nyt menetellyt kyseenalaisesti jo yli vuoden ajan eräillä alueilla Inarissa – useamman paliskunnan alueella. Neuvottelu- ja yhteistyövelvollisuuksiaan porotalouden kanssa Metsähallituksen Ivalon toimiston vastuullinen suunnittelija on toteuttanut esimerkiksi laatimalla hakkuusuunnitelmat valmiiksi helmikuussa 2015, istumalla karttojen päällä 10 kuukautta ja lähettämällä sitten hakkuukartan poronhoitajille joulun ja uudenvuoden välissä varustettuna saatteella, jonka mukaan hakkuu alkaa kuukauden kuluttua.

Metsäteollisuus on ollut huolissaan ennustettavasta ja vakaasta toimintaympäristöstä Suomessa, esimerkiksi Kajaanin Ärjänsaaren hakkuiden yhteydessä. Teollisuuden katse kannattaisi nyt pikaisesti kohdistaa eduskuntaan ja Inariin. Mitä voimme ennustaa asiakkaiden reaktioiksi markkinoilla, jos viesti Suomesta on Etelä-Suomen metsien suojelun puutteiden ja ympäristömerkeillä vedättämisen lisäksi kohta myös se, että teollisuuden suurin puuntoimittaja lämmittelee uudelleen alkuperäiskansojen oikeuksiin ja maailman pohjoisimpiin havumetsiin liittyviä kiistoja?

Alkuvuosi on ollut melkoista rummutusta ydinvoimarintamalla. Fennovoiman puskafarssin lisäksi paljon palstatilaa on kerännyt myös Olkiluoto 3. 

Kerrataanpa mitä alkuvuonna on jo ehtinyt tapahtua.

Olkiluoto 3: kolmiodraama ja epäonnistunut avioliitto

Image.. Monivuotinen perinne voimalan myöhästymiseen liittyvästä uutisoinnista näytti jo hetkeksi päättyneen, kun Olkiluodosta kuului uutisia, joiden mukaan hanke eteni ja virstanpylväitä saavutettiin.

Todellisuus ei kuitenkaan ollut niin strömsöinen. Tai kuten YLE asian niin sopivasti muotoili:

“Viimeisten kuukausien aikana Olkiluodon ydinvoimalan työmaalta ei ole kuulunut huonoja uutisia. Helmikuun alussa työmaalla aloitettiin ydinvoimalan käyttö- ja turva-automaatiojärjestelmän testaus. Kaikki ei välttämättä etene jatkossa yhtä auvoisasti kuin viime aikoina.” 

Arevan ja EDF:n neuvottelut jumissa

Areva, jolta Olkiluoto 3 on tilattu, on lähes konkurssikypsä. Siksi toinen ranskalainen ydinvoimayhtiö EDF sekä Ranskan valtio ovat käyneet neuvotteluja Arevan pelastamisesta jo viime vuoden kesäkuusta lähtien.

Kuluvan vuoden tammikuussa tähän kolmiodraamaan piti löytyä ratkaisu. Ei löytynyt. Vastausten sijaan saatiin vain liuta uusia kysymyksiä. EDF haluaisi siirtää Olkiluoto 3:n kokonaan uuden toimijan vastuulle eli sysätä koko projektin roskapankin kontolle. TVO: lle tämä järjestely ei ymmärrettävästi sopinut, sillä suunnitelma “vaarantaisi koko Olkiluoto 3:n“.

Raw HTML..

Areva ei meinaa kelvata kenellekään Olkiluoto 3:n tappioiden vuoksi.

Taloussanomissa TVO:n toimitusjohtaja kuvaili Arevan ja TVO:n sopimusta “avioliitoksi, josta ei voi ottaa eroa”. Vaikka Arevan ja TVO:n neuvottelut ovat sujuneet “hyvässä hengessä”,ranskalaiset tekivät TVO:lle pian Virkkusen lausunnon jälkeen selväksi, että kyseessä ei ole mikään rakkausavioliitto lisätessään parisataa miljoonaa summaan, jota ranskalaiset vaativat TVO:lta. TVO vaatii Arevalta välimiesmenettelyssä 2,6 miljardia euroa ja Areva puolestaan lisäsi panoksia ja ilmoitti vaativansa yli 3,5 miljardia euroa TVO:lta. Riidan lopputulos saattaa ratkaista sen tuleeko Olkiluoto 3:sta koskaan valmista ja jos tuleekin, tuottaako se ikinä voittoa.

Lehtitietojen mukaan riitaan pitäisi tulla ratkaisu viimeistään tämän viikon torstaina. Sekä TVO että Areva ovat pelanneet ja jatkavat pelaamista ranskalaisten ja suomalaisten veronmaksajien varoilla.

Vaikka Olli Rehn on toistuvasti kiistänyt Suomen valtion olevan millään tavalla mukana kiistan osapuolena, on selvää, että Olkiluoto 3:a ei päästettäisi kaatumaan siinä tapauksessa, että TVO häviäisi kiistansa Arevalle. Jos TVO:lta ei maksukykyä sattuisi löytymään, rahat kyllä kaivettaisiin jostain. Kun on kyseessä kovan onnen ja suuren mittakaavan projekti, on päättäjiemme luovuus loputon ja valtion kassa pohjaton. Sen ovat osoittaneet Fortumin pakottaminen mukaan Fennovoimaan ratkaisevilla hetkillä ja Talvivaaran 650 000 euroa päivässä nielevä tekohengitys.

Fennovoima - rahat ja sopimukset hukassa

Vaikka Fennovoima on projektina vasta kovin nuori, on se jo ehtinyt tehdä jotain missä edes Olkiluoto 3 ei muistikuvieni mukaan onnistunut. Hanke on jo myöhässä, vaikka rakentamislupaa ei ole eikä rakentamista ole aloitettu. Voimalan automaation tai turbiinisaarekkeen toimittajasta ei ole vielä edes sopimusta.

Projektinjohtaja on hukassa

Toisaalta eipä ole sopimusta projektinjohtajastakaan, vaikka SRV sellaisen väitti allekirjoittaneensa jo viime vuoden elokuussa. YLE uutisoi tammikuun lopussa, että SRV:n ja venäläisen pääurakoitsija Titan 2:n välinen sopimus on yhä auki. SRV:n edustajan mukaan “yleensä jos asiat eivät etene, niin silloin jotakin viivettä on prosessissa.” SRV:llä onkin kokemusta joistakin viiveistä prosesseissa. Esimerkiksi SRV:n urakoiman Helsinki-Vantaan lentoaseman juna-asema viivästyi useita kuukausia, koska liukuportaiden asentamisen kanssa oli ongelmia. Fennovoiman onneksi kyseessä on vain ydinvoimala eikä Hanhikivelle ole suunniteltu asennettavan liukuportaita.

Pääurakoitsijan rahat ovat hukassa

Raw HTML.. Aliurakoitsijat ovat joutuneet tivaamaan rahojaan Fennovoiman pääurakoitsija Titan 2:lta.

Pääurakoitsija Titan 2:llakaan ei ole mennyt projekti aivan putkeen. Kaleva uutisoi Titan 2:n rästiin jääneistä maksuista ja maksamattomista vuokrista tammikuun lopussa. Fennovoiman mukaan ongelmat ovat teknisiä ja rahaa Titan 2:lla pitäisi piisata. Onhan tälläkin yhtiöllä erittäin läheiset välit Venäjän johtoon.

Kokonaan toinen asia on sitten se onko Venäjällä tarpeeksi rahaa hankkeen läpiviemiseen. Fennovoima ei ole suinkaan Rosatomin ainoa projekti ulkomailla, vaikka se eittämättä tärkein onkin.

Fennovoiman rahat ovat... jossain

Fennovoiman “kaksosprojekti” Unkarissa, Paks 2, on vaikeuksissa.

1. Ensinnäkin projekti on päätynyt vaikeuksiin, koska Euroopan komissio epäilee Unkarin antaneen sille laitonta valtionapua.

2. Lisäksi Paks2 on komission suurennuslasin alla siksi, ettei voimalan rakennuttamisesta järjestetty tarjouskilpailua. Euroopan parlamentin vihreiden unkarilainen jäsen Benedek Jávorin mukaan Fennovoimakin voi päätyä samaan tilaan kuin Paks2, “jos valtion rahoitus Fennovoimassa lisääntyy”.

3. Kolmanneksi myös Paks2:n rahoitus on edelleen kysymysmerkki. Paks2:n 10 miljardin rahoituksen piti hoitua Putinin “erikoisprojekteihin” käyttämän VEB-pankin kautta. Joulukuun lopussa kuitenkin selvisi, että kyseinen pankki tarvitsee itse 18 miljardin pelastuspaketin.

Fennovoiman lainarahat putoavat taivaasta.

2,4 miljardia Fennovoiman lainarahoista puolestaan tulee suoraan Venäjän valtion hyvinvointirahastosta eli venäläisten eläkeläisten taskusta. Sekin rahasto on vaarassa tyhjentyä vuoden 2018 loppuun mennessä.

On yhä epäselvää, mistä loput rahat tulisivat. Rakentamislupahakemuksessa viitataan “venäläisten ja muiden toimittaja maiden vientiluottoihin”. Raos Projectin hallituksen puheenjohtaja Vadim Ryabov puolestaan sanoo Tekniikka&Talous-lehdelle (6/2016) antamassaan sähköpostihaastattelussa, että â€œsuuri osa laitteistohankintoja suunnitellaan rahoitettavaksi erilaisten kansainvälisten rahoitusjärjestöjen kautta”.

Mistä ne rahat siis tulevat?


          On aika murtaa muurit

On varhainen aamu. On pilvistä, ilmassa on pieni tuulenvire ja olemme pelastusyksikkönä valmiudessa auttamaan Lesbokselle saapuvia pakolaisveneitä, mikäli jokin niistä joutuu merihätään. Pian saammekin yhteydenoton. Yksi alus on havaittu meidän sijainnistamme itään. Puemme pelastuspuvut yllemme, käynnistämme veneiden moottorit ja lähdemme matkaan.

Heti kun tavoitamme pienen, liian täyteen lastatun ja huonolaatuisen kumiveneen (myöhemmin saamiemme tietojen mukaan veneessä matkusti 52 syyrialaista), huomasimme välittömästi, että se tulisi uppoamaan. Oli aika toimia. Syntyi hetkellinen kaaos, kun tulimme kiinni kumiveneen kylkeen ja aloimme auttaa ihmisiä veneestä toiseen.

Autoimme veneeseemme turvaan miehiä, naisia, lapsia ja vauvoja. Kyselimme heiltä, olivatko he märkiä tai kylmissään, ja selitimme heille, että he olivat nyt turvassa ja pääsisivät mukanamme Kreikkaan asti.

Myöhemmin rantalaiturilla pitelin sylissäni vanhaa rouvaa. Hän itki helpotuksesta, mutta myös pelosta. En koskaan tule unohtamaan hänen katseessaan näkyvää kiitollisuutta. Tällainen on tavanomainen päivä Lesboksella. Pakolaisia pyrkii joka päivä taittamaan matkan meren yli päästäkseen turvaan Eurooppaan.

Tämän pakolaisryhmän piti kävellä kaksi kuukautta päästäkseen Turkin rannikolle. Turkissa heidän täytyi maksaa ihmissalakuljettajille suuri summa rahaa veneestä, jolla ylittää Egeanmeri. Matkalaisilla oli mukanaan hyvin vähän omaisuutta. Kaikista haasteista huolimatta he onnistuivat pääsemään perille.

Nyt he ovat saapuneet Eurooppaan ja ovat turvassa. Vai ovatko he?

Euroopan Unioni, joka syntyi toisen maailmansodan jälkimainingeissa, perustuu ihmisarvon, oikeuden, vapauden, demokratian, ihmisoikeuksien ja vähemmistöjen suojelun arvoille. Valitettavasti nämä arvot vaikuttavat olevan nykyilmapiirissä unohdettuja.

Joka päivä sadat, tai joskus jopa tuhannet pakolaiset ja maahanmuuttajat rantautuvat Lesbokselle. He pakenevat kotimaassaan käytävää sotaa suojellakseen perhettään, mutta minkälaisen vastaanoton he saavat? He kohtaavat aitoja, tiukennettua rajavalvontaa, ja he joutuvat viettämään aikaa täyteen ahdetuissa leireissä tai ulkona talven kylmässä.

Kauhistuksekseni kotimaani Tanska haluaa nyt maahanmuuttajien luovuttavan viimeiset henkilökohtaiset arvotavaransa maksuksi asumisesta matalatasoisissa leireissä. Kuinka kukaan poliitikko, tai ylipäätään kukaan ihminen voi kohdella toisia näin? Vastaako tämä eurooppalaista käsitystä ihmisarvosta?

Vielä kauheampaa on se, että yli 3700 ihmistä kuoli vuonna 2015 yrittäessään päästä Eurooppaan. Tämä merkitsee keskimäärin kymmentä kuolonuhria päivittäin. Kuitenkin sen sijaan, että tarjottaisiin turvallinen siirtymä ja pelastettaisiin ihmishenkiä, Eurooppa lisää rajavalvontaa. Joka tapauksessa Lesbokselle meriteitse saapuvat ihmiset on päivittäinen realiteetti.

Olen ammatiltani merenkävijä ja tärkein osa työtäni on taata merenkulun turvallisuus, joka tarkoittaa myös merihädässä olevien pelastamista. Lesboksella näen kuitenkin satoja ihmisiä merihädässä päivittäin, ja tämä tapahtuu EU:n kynnyksellä. Useat kansalaisjärjestöt ovat täällä pelastamassa ihmisiä, eli tekemässä työtä joka kuuluisi EU:lle.

Uskon vaalimiimme eurooppalaisiin arvoihin, kuten vapauteen, demokratiaan ja yleisiin ihmisoikeuksiin. EU:n johtajien on aika herätä ja palauttaa mieliin nämä keskeiset arvomme, ja omaksua humaani asenne niitä kohtaan, jotka vielä toivovat Euroopasta pakopaikkaa.

Tulin Lesbokselle toivoen näille ihmisille turvallista matkaa ja parempaa tulevaisuutta.

          Tossa de Mar i la nimfa Toosa        

Antiga població de pescadors, Tossa de Mar, a la Costa Brava, és avui en dia un bonic poble que rep cada any milers de turistes que poden gaudir de la seva mar blava d’aigües cristal·lines  i de la seva  arquitectura.

Situat en un  jardinet de la població, i sense cap tipus d’inscripció, hi ha un monument, que fins ara, a mi, que sóc una visitant assídua, no m’havia cridat l’atenció. Però aquests dies de vacances, potser encomanada per la ‘febre’ del Treball de Recerca, propi dels alumnes de batxillerat, vaig decidir cercar informació. La meva sorpresa va ser gran quan vaig assabentar-me que aquesta escultura, que per la seva ubicació passa normalment desapercebuda, té a veure amb l’origen del nom del poble i que, segons la llegenda, protagonitzen Posidó, el déu grec dels mars i de les aigües, i la nimfa Toosa, filla de Forcis, el vell que governava les ones de la mar blavosa.

Segons la llegenda, Toosa no accedia als desitjos de Posidó, que volia la seva virtut, raó per la qual ell, aconsellat per Metis, va tornar a insistir per ser acceptat, oferint-li un esplèndid regal en prova del seu amor, a la qual cosa ella va respondre exigint-li poder veure el regal abans d’accedir als seus desitjos. Va ser llavors quan Posidó va portar Toosa davant d’un majestuós palau que s’aixecava sobre les roques d’una formosa badia de la Mediterrània, que seria coneguda per la humanitat amb el nom de Tossa. La nimfa, fascinada per tanta bellesa natural, no va oposar resistència als braços del déu Posidó, que la va conquerir.

Aquesta llegenda basada en la mitologia grega va ser escrita pel periodista i escriptor Emili Casademont Comas (Girona, 1936), i publicada, a partir del 1964, a diferents diaris de l’època. Anys més tard, l’escultor Bonaventura Ansón (1945) va descobrir aquesta narració i va considerar que la nimfa Toosa era mereixedora de tenir un monument a la vila a la qual ella donava nom.


La peça, de marbre, que mostra l’escena de la declaració d’amor entre els dos protagonistes, s’inaugurà el 28 de juny del 1987, després de pronunciar-se el pregó de la Festa Major de Tossa de Mar, que se celebra per Sant Pere, i es troba situada en un jardinet triangular, molt a prop del Mediterrani, que hi ha a l’inici de l’avinguda Costa Brava de la població de La Selva.

          L'educació a l'antiga Roma        

Com bona part del patrimoni cultural que tenim, la nostra educació també s’ha nodrit durant segles de les arrels clàssiques i, malgrat hagi passat el temps, som hereus del que grecs i romans van deixar gravat en la nostra memòria. A Roma, no podem iniciar l’estudi de l’educació abans del segle IV a.C. per manca de fonts fidels.  Com és evident, aquesta no era la mateixa que ara, ja que hi ha hagut avenços en les eines, en les tècniques i en la matèria d’estudi, i de la mateixa manera que molt ha canviat tot plegat, tanmateix en època romana la finalitat de l’educació perseguia allò que li és universal: desenvolupar les virtuts de l’home ideal romà a través de la gravitas (“responsabilitat”), la severitas (“austeritat”), la pietas (“respecte”) i la bona fides (“lleialtat”).
Els nens, fins als set anys,  rebien una educació donada per la mare (materfamilias), que els ensenyava els primers costums i la puresa de la llengua. En la segona infantesa, fins als dotze anys, depenien de l’autoritat del pare (paterfamilias), que els  ensenyava a comptar, nedar o fer servir l’espasa... però les nenes encara seguien depenent de la mare. El pare portava el fill amb ell, perquè aprengués mitjançant la seva experiència i el seu exemple, atès que imitar els grans (recordant el respecte al mos maiorum, el costum dels avantpassats) era el tractament pedagògic fonamental. Als setze anys, el ritual de la presa de la toga viril donava per acabada l’educació familiar, encara que els nens encara no tenien la suficient maduresa.
Durant un any, per tant, havien de passar per l’anomenat tirocinium fori, un any on aprenien de la política, dels afers polítics i d’oratòria, tot i que no s’haguessin desprès encara de les ensenyances donades per la família, ja que era un període de temps passat al costat dels pares o un tutor. Acabat aquest aprenentatge, els nois adolescents s’iniciaven en el tirocinium militiae, la vida militar, per iniciar a posteriorila carrera política o cursus honorum, i no en tots els casos. Aquesta era una educació específica, però simultàniament  anaven a l’escola.
La jornada escolar començava a l’alba, després es feia una parada al migdia i es tornava un altre cop a  l’escola. Les matèries que s’estudiaven eren reduïdes gairebé a la lectura i l’escriptura. L’escola era per nens i nenes, encara que sembla que pel que fa a les nenes es preferia que anessin a una de privada.

Hi havia tres estadis de l’ensenyament romà:

El ludus litterarius (dels set fins als onze o dotze anys). El professor era el primus magister ludi, que era l’encarregat d’ensenyar-los a llegir (legere), escriure (scribere) i comptar (calculare). Les lliçons s'impartien en locals molt humils, galeries sota els porxos del fòrum (pergulae) o tabernae llogades per a aquest fi, separades del carrer per una cortina (velum). També podien fer-se a l'aire lliure amb la bonança del temps. Als espais que feien d'aula (de l'antic terme llatí homònim amb el significat de 'palau'), els alumnes s'asseien en bancs sense respatller o tamborets (subsellia) al voltant del mestre, que ho feia en una cadira amb respatller (cathedra). Aquesta era l’educació més bàsica perquè després passaven a l’escola de ludus grammaticus.
          El ludus grammaticus (dels dotze als setze anys). Eren estudis reservats per a nens de famílies amb recursos i, per tant, el nombre d'assistents era molt més reduït i personalitzat. També els locals eren de més qualitat i, fins i tot, decorats amb retrats d'escriptors, artistes o polítics i mapes pintats a les parets. Aquest nivell servia per iniciar-se en el món dels negocis i per preparar-se per a un nivell superior (ludus rhetoris). El professor d’aquest nivell (magister grammaticus) tenia més prestigi i estava més ben pagat. Els coneixements apresos pels joves en aquesta etapa educativa eren els equivalents als que s’ensenyaven a l’escola grega: fonamentalment una iniciació al domini del llenguatge i la interpretació de la literatura poètica. Les matèries impartides anaven des de la història o la geografia a l'aritmètica passant per la mitologia o l'astronomia.
 El ludus rhetoricus. En aquesta etapa se’ls preparava per a la vida pública, per a ser advocats o fer la carrera política (cursus honorum). S’estudiava, essencialment, oratòria (l’art de parlar en públic, a través de suasoriae -discursos per convèncer l'auditori- i controuersiae -debats amb continguts jurídics-), la retòrica grega i la llatina, tot i que predominava més la grega. Assistien alumnes de disset a vint anys. En finalitzar aquesta etapa, l'educació d'un jove romà es donava per acabada. Els romans més benestants, però, solien enviar els seus fills a escoles de prestigi de fora d'Itàlia, especialment a Grècia, bressol de la civilització occidental, on podien completar i aprofundir els seus coneixements com a deixebles d'algun orador o filòsof de fama.

Fins a finals de l’època republicana no es comença a anar a l’escola en el marc d’una política educativa d’Estat. Fins aleshores els nois i algunes noies aprenien d’un mestre professional. Es tractava, per tant, d’escoles privades on cada alumne pagava una quantitat al mes. Durant l’època imperial es van crear escoles públiques a Roma. Igual que la metodologia, basada en la memòria i en la imitació, és molt diferent a l’actual, el material també ho era; utilitzaven papyrus, que era un pergamí on apuntaven el que deia el magister, la seva pissarra s’anomenava tabula o tabella cerata (semblant, això sí, fins i tot en el nom a les actuals tablets!) i tenien uns stili o punxons amb què escrivien. Per comptar utilitzaven un abacus, estri que encara ara podem trobar a l’actualitat. L’atramenti receptaculum era el pot que contenia la tinta per escriure al papyrus i també feien ús de les pennae, que eren les plomes amb què escrivien, o el càlam (calamus), una espècie de canya amb punxa. Per guardar i transportar aquests estris els alumnes duien una mena de motxilla o capsa. A més de les tauletes també tenien llibres (libri), que podien ser de tipus: el volumen, una tira d'uns vint fulls de papir, encolats l'un al costat de l'altre, que s'enrotllaven, i el codex, un quadern de fulls de pergamí cosits en plecs a la manera dels nostres llibres actuals.

Per acabar, i després de tot el que hem après cercant informació sobre l’educació romana, pensem que cal agrair-los el fet d’haver creat un sistema educatiu que, mutatis mutandis, ens ha fet com som. Nosaltres, a la propera edició de la Magna Celebratio que se celebrarà el proper cap de setmana a Badalona, intentarem estar a l’alçada!

I agree, Jo, and kind of say so in the article ... the fruit salad and juice stalls are just at the front and as a matter of fact, I never ever enter by the main entrance but always cut through Palau de la Virreina so I enter directly at the back and miss out the tourist bit!

20 DÍAS DESPUÉS DE ESTA FOTO SEIS MESES DESPUÉS QUE MI MADRE Y DE LO MISMO, ELLA MORÍA DE UN CÁNCER DE COLON QUE YA LLEVABA HACÍA AÑOS.. PERO QUE NADIE SABÍA.  EL 16 DE DICIEMBRE DE 1995.
BUENO ALGUNOS AMIGOS.. CLARO QUE LO SABÍAMOS.. PERO ERAMOS MUY POCOS.
A SU LADO ( A LA IZQUIERDA DE LA FOTO ) ESTA EL PADRE FRANCISCANO: BERARDO, QUE ESCRIBIÓ VARIOS LIBROS SOBRE LA VIDA DE MARIELE... Y QUE TAMBIÉN FUÉ... QUIEN HACE DOS AÑOS.. PRESENTÓ LA CAUSA DE LA BEATIFICACIÓN AL VATICANO.

EL PADRE BERARDO FALLECIÓ HACE POQUITO D. E. P. 
PERO ANTES DE SU PARTIDA.. DEBÍA DE SENTIRSE MUY PERO QUE MUY FELÍZ PUES HABÍAN ADMITIDO LA CAUSA QUE ÉL HABÍA LLEVADO CON TANTO ESMERO
O SEA: LA BEATIFICACIÓN DE MARIELE.


ESTE POST ES COMPLICADO PARA MI, PUESTO QUE NUESTRA AMISTAD EMPIEZA SOBRE EL AÑO 1973, CUANDO VOLVIENDO YO DE SAN REMO CON EL GRUPO NINS, ME ENTERO QUE EL MEJOR FESTIVAL DEL MUNDO.. DE NIÑOS.. SE LLAMABA:
¡¡¡ ZECCHINO D'ORO !!!
Y EN CUANTO TUVE OPORTUNIDAD, ME FUÍ A BOLOGNA ( ITALIA ) A CONOCER A MARIELE.. LA DIRECTORA DEL FESTIVAL Y DEL CORO.. Y A TODA LA ORGANIZACIÓN.
ALLÍ ( LAS VECES QUE FUI ) PERFECCIONÉ LA MANERA CORRECTA DE COMO DEBEN CANTAR LOS NIÑOS.. SIN DEJAR DE SERLO. PUES GRACIAS A LA AMABILIDAD DE MARIELE.. ME DEJÓ ENTRAR A TODOS LOS ENSAYOS A TODAS LAS GRABACIONES...A LAS CLASES CON EL CORO.. BUENO, EN UNA PALABRA A TODO.

Y YA ( LA VERDAD ES QUE NO RECUERDO EL AÑO ).. EL COLMO DE LAS CAUSALIDADES, FUE QUE TVE DESDE MADRID, Y A TRAVÉS DE MI AMIGA JULY MURILLO, ME LLAMARON PARA QUE PREPARARA UNOS CUANTOS NIÑOS SOBRE UNOS 5 O 6 AÑÍTOS.. PORQUE IBAN A ESCOGER AL NIÑO ESPAÑOL QUE REPRESENTARÍA A ESPAÑA EN ESTE FESTIVAL.
LA CANCIÓN ERA DE LA PROPIA JULY.. Y EL NIÑO LO PREPARABA YO.. 
Y ASI FUÉ COMO ME CONVERTÍ EN LA PERSONA QUE CADA CUATRO O CINCO AÑOS.. CUANDO TOCABA ESPAÑA,. LLEVABA AL NIÑO O NIÑA ESPAÑOLES.. PARA CANTAR EN EL ZECCHINO.

AQUI OS DEJO A UNA DE MIS CANCIONES Y DE MIS NIÑAS-- QUE GANÓ EL ZECCHINO.. CANTANDO.. MI CANCIÓN DEL 600.. DE LA QUE LA AUTORA ERA YO Y LA TRADUCTORA A. VALERI MANERA.. DE CANALE 5




Y ASÍ FUERON SIGUIENDO LOS AÑOS.. LOS FESTIVALES.. LAS OTRAS ACTUACIONES QUE NO ERAN FESTIVALES.. UNA DISFRUTADA DE MORIRSE.

Y YA ( COMO HE DICHO ANTES..) LA VENIDA DEL CORO A ESPAÑA..  FUE UN ACONTECIMIENTO QUE NADIE QUE ESTUVIESE DE POR MEDIO... PODRÁ OLVIDAR JAMÁS.

LO QUE SI QUIERO DECIROS.. QUE HOY ME HE ATREVIDO A EMPEZAR ALGO DE ESTA HISTORIA CON ESTA PEQUEÑA NOTA.. PERO QUE VOY A IR DESGRANANDO.. DESDE QUE NACIÓ MI AMIGA.. HASTA QUE PARTIÓ A DIRIGIR EL CORO DE ÁNGELES QUE ES LO QUE PONE EN SU TUMBA.

HAY MIL COSAS QUE CONTAR.. MIL ANÉCDOTAS QUE RECORDAR Y QUE SE YO.. PERO QUE AÚN ESTOY CONMOCIONADA Y PENSANDO COMO VOY A PONER TODO PARA QUE LOS QUE LEAN EL BLOG, SEPAN QUIEN ERA MI AMIGA " MARIELE "


                                                                                  


PUES CON ESTAS DOS ( FOTOS DEL AÑO 96 ) EN LA QUE PARTICIPÓ POR ÚLTIMA VEZ UN NIÑO MIO..( EN ESTE CASO ERA PAULA DE 5 AÑITOS) DEJO ABIERTA LA HISTORIA.

POR MI PARTE:

¡¡¡ NUNCA MÁS FUI CAPAZ DE PRESENTAR NINGUNA CANCIÓN Y LLEGAR ALLÍ Y VERLO TODO.. CON MUCHA ALEGRÍA PERO YA SÍN EL ALMA Y EL " SELLO " PERSONAL DE : MARIELE. !!!

ATENÇÃO – FORTE CONTEÚDO GRÁFICO
A propaganda da União Soviética tem dois enormes sucessos em reescrever a história do mundo ocidental. O segundo é a transformação de Israel em um estado nazista, inimigo de todos, principalmente dos palestinos, uns 20 anos depois da União Soviética ter sido uma das mais importantes apoiadoras da Partilha da Palestina. Dizem os historiadores de esquerda que a URSS jamais apoiou Israel e o voto pela Partilha era apenas para complicar a vida da Inglaterra.
O primeiro grande sucesso criado no auge da Guerra Fria foi o de transformar os Estados Unidos, o grande inimigo capitalista dos soviéticos, no carrasco cruel dos japoneses. Através de seus aliados oficiais e dos integrantes de partidos comunistas na mídia ocidental, a história da guerra do Pacífico foi reescrita, para deixar uma marca indelével, principalmente nos alunos das escolas ocidentais de que toda a população de Hiroshima e Nagazaki, pobres e pacíficos civis japoneses, foram fulminados e queimados por duas terríveis bombas atômicas lançadas pelos Estados Unidos. A propaganda transformou os carrascos japoneses, gente que tinha profundo desprezo pela sua própria vida e consideração zero com a vida do inimigo, em santos homens abatidos pelo capitalismo. E a cada ano, no dia 6 de agosto vemos a mesma lenga-lenga de revisionismo histórico soviético ser repetida a um ponto que já se tornou a verdade incontestável.
Mas esta não é a verdade dos fatos.
É um erro imaginar que a entrada do Japão na Segunda Guerra Mundial se dá com o ataque a Pearl Harbour, no Havaí em 7 de dezembro de 1941. O Japão era um país governado por um imperador com status de Deus, ao qual todos os cidadãos juravam fidelidade e colocavam suas vidas à disposição. O desprezo pela vida em nome do imperador e da honra japonesa era incutido nas pessoas desde a mais tenra idade, tanto nas escolas, quanto nos lares. Sendo liderados por Deus, os japoneses cresciam com a certeza de serem a raça superior no planeta e que todas as outras raças eram consideradas de segunda classe ou mesmo com animais não-humanos. Pode-se dizer que o regime japonês era uma mistura de teocracia com culto à personalidade e fascismo militar.
A Segunda Guerra Mundial no Pacífico se inicia antes da Europa, em 7 de julho de 1937 quando a China é invadida por tropas japonesas. A maioria dos historiadores dissocia (sabe-se lá porque) a Guerra Sino Japonesa do bojo da Segunda Guerra Mundial. Ela durou até o dia 9 de setembro de 1945, portanto foi encerrada longos 20 dias após a rendição japonesa. Antes disso, desde 1931, o Japão já ocupava a Manchuria. No final do ano de 1937 as tropas japonesas venceram suas duas mais importantes batalhas e ocuparam Xangai e a capital chinesa, Nanking. As forças japonesas envolvidas nestes 8 anos de guerra chegaram aos 4.100.000 homens, somando-se a eles cerca de 900.000 chineses colaboradores.

Ao ocupar Nanking, as tropas japonesas lançaram um programa para executar soldados chineses em roupas civis. O número de estupros de mulheres foi imenso, tudo foi saqueado, e as execuções sumárias chegaram a 200.000 pessoas em seis semanas desta operação.

A Guerra Sino Japonesa é responsável por um número gigantesco de mortes. Os japoneses perderam 480.000 soldados e outros 1.900.000 foram feridos. Já do lado chinês, 1.440.000 soldados foram mortos e outros 1.800.000 foram feridos, entre as tropas chinesas nacionalistas e 250.000 soldados chineses comunistas morreram, enquanto outros 290.467 foram feridos. O Japão não perdeu nenhum civil nesta guerra, enquanto matou 22 milhões de civis chineses. Por favor, leia novamente: vinte e dois milhões de civis chineses mortos pelas tropas japonesas!

Acostumado aos Seis Milhões de Judeus mortos no Holocausto, o leitor deve estar impressionado com este número e precisa se perguntar: por que nunca falam disto? Por que na China não se relembra isto? A explicação é simples. O comandante em chefe chinês era o nacionalista Chiang Kai-shek, que ao término da Segunda Guerra Mundial, começou a ser combatido pelo comandante chinês comunista, Mao Zedong. Quando Mao venceu e estabeleceu o comunismo na China e Chiang fugiu para (a hoje) Taiwan, o novo regime, em sua reforma cultural e expurgos considerou estas 22 milhões de pessoas mortas como um efeito desejável atribuindo a todas elas a pecha de serem nacionalistas, portanto anti-revolucionárias.

Outro ponto importante para se deixar o campo de batalha sino-japonês fora dos livros é o fato de que os Nacionalistas Chineses eram apoiados pela Alemanha Nazista e as fotos de suas tropas são especificamente inconvenientes, por mostra uma resistência contra o Japão utilizando armas e uniformes alemães. Na foto em Nanjing temos uma grande massa popular e de soldados chineses nacionalistas, assistindo a execução de um oficial japonês invasor de alta patente. O chinês com uniforme e capacete nazista, disparando uma pistola Mauser alemã, observado à esquerda por dois oficiais que parecem mais saídos de Berlim que Pequim é complicada e incomoda a qualquer um.

CONQUISTAS E ATROCIDADES CONTRA SUB-HUMANOS
Aos poucos os japoneses começaram a atacar todos os países asiáticos. Coreia, Indochina Francesa (Vietnã), Birmânia, Filipinas, Nova Guiné, Singapura e um grande número de ilhas. A cada conquista, novas atrocidades. Vamos enumerar apenas algumas e veja você mesmo se algo se parece com o ISIS, que também luta em nome de Deus.

Fevereiro de 1942, no aeroporto da ilha de Ambon, 300 prisioneiros de guerra australianos e holandeses, escolhidos aleatoriamente no campo de prisioneiros próximo foram decapitados. 90 soldados e oficiais japoneses foram julgados por este massacre depois da guerra. Apenas quatro foram condenados a morte.

Em 14 de fevereiro de 1942 um dia antes das tropas britânicas se renderem em Singapura, o hospital militar foi alcançado pelos soldados japoneses. Os 200 soldados ingleses feridos que estavam no hospital, foram levados ao pátio e mortos com baionetas. Cinco se esconderam num esgoto e sobreviveram para contar. Quando soube do incidente, o comandante japonês, o General Yamashita, prendeu e executou seus homens que participaram do massacre.

As tropas japonesas equivalentes à SS eram os Kempeitai. Entre fevereiro e março 1942, foram os autores da Operação Sook Ching (Purificar Através da Limpeza Étnica) em Singapura. Percorram aldeias no interior do país, assassinando 100.000 civis.

Na ilha de Palau em 14 de dezembro de 1944, a guarnição japonesa imaginou que os americanos haviam desembarcado na ilha (o que não ocorreu) e mandaram seus 150 prisioneiros americanos entrarem em trincheiras. Em seguida jogaram gasolina sobre eles e os queimaram. Os que tentaram fugir das chamas foram mortos à baioneta, a tiros ou a porretadas. Cerca de 10 soldados americanos, ainda assim conseguiram fugir, se jogar no mar e nadar até outra ilha.
Em 18 de março de 1943, um destróier japonês foi enviado para transportar um grupo de 60 missionários alemães e chineses aliados de Kairuru para Rabaul. No meio da viagem o comando da marinha ordenou por rádio que todos fossem executados acusando-os de espionagem. O capitão do navio de guerra, levou os prisioneiros, um a um para a parte de trás do navio, onde foram executados com um tiro na cabeça e lançados ao mar. Duas crianças que estavam com o grupo foram jogadas vivas ao mar. A execução durou mais de 3 horas.

Em 18 de março de 1944, um navio de guerra japonês afundou o navio mercante inglês Behar no Oceano Índico. 108 tripulantes e passageiros sobreviveram. A noite, o capitão japonês dividiu o grupo. Colocou 36 deles, incluindo o capitão inglês e seus oficias em outro barco e os libertou. Os outros 72, praticamente todos civis, foram considerados ‘prisioneiros inúteis’, decapitados e tiveram seus corpos jogados ao mar. Posteriormente o capitão japonês foi enforcado por crimes de guerra.
Em 26 de março de 1944 um submarino japonês afundou um navio mercante holandês na região de Sri Lanka. 103 tripulantes sobreviveram e foram massacrados com espadas e marretas. Os que não tinham morrido foram deixados sobre o casco do submarino que mergulhou com a intenção de afoga-los. Ainda assim, cinco sobreviveram.

Entre fevereiro e março de 1945, quando os americanos retomavam as Filipinas e chegaram a capital Manila, o general Yamashita ordenou a retirada das tropas, mais dois almirantes no comando local recusaram as ordens e mandaram as tropas resistirem até a morte. Os americanos apenas lançaram alguns ataques de artilharia contra posições japonesas, inicialmente e as tropas de ocupação começaram a pilhar, estuprar e matar os civis filipinos, decapitando-os, matando-os com baionetas, metralhando grupos inteiros e ateando fogo em prédios cheios de gente. No final da batalha, todos os japoneses estavam mortos e com eles 100.000 civis filipinos. Manila foi a segunda cidade mais destruída na guerra, perdendo apenas para Varsóvia.

Se você chegou até aqui, é provável que esteja mudando sua perspectiva sobre as pobres vítimas japonesas do satan americano. Mas tem mais. Na Birmânia principalmente, mas também em outros países da região asiática as tropas japonesas treinavam tiro ao alvo contra prisioneiros civis amarrados em tocos de madeira e documentavam isso. As fotos estão aqui na matéria. Mas apenas isto não bastava à raça superior nipônica. Treinamentos com baionetas também eram realizados contra civis das áreas ocupadas e uma das fotos OFICIAIS mais perversas da guerra é a que abre esta matéria, com um bebê filipino atravessado na baioneta de um soldado japonês.
EXPERIÊNCIAS MÉDICAS
Da mesma forma que os nazistas fizeram experimentos médicos bárbaros e terríveis contra judeus em campos de concentração o Japão estava interessado em desenvolver armas biológicas e criou a Unidade 731 na China. Suas tarefas básicas era infectar prisioneiros chineses com as mais diversas doenças para estudar sua transição, velocidade de propagação e efeitos, a também o que o corpo humano suportava de altas e baixas temperaturas. Fazia parte do estudo a dissecação das vítimas que era feita não em cadáveres mais nas vítimas vivas. Cólera, febre tifoide, disenteria e antrax foram lançadas como testes sobre cidades chinesas e as epidemias duraram até 1948. Mais de 200.000 pessoas foram mortas.
ANTES DA BOMBA
Em abril de 1944 inicia-se o ataque às Ilhas Japonesas com a invasão de Iwo Jima. Esta batalha, demonstraria em definitivo o conceito japonês não só de lutar até a morte, mas de lançar-se a morte sem objetivo militar para morrer e não ser capturado, além do simples suicídio ritual de soldados que não entraram em combate e não foram mortos pelo inimigo.
Em 38 dias de batalha por uma pequena ilha de cinzas vulcânicas, praticamente plana com uma montanha em uma de suas extremidades, os americanos desembarcaram 70.000 soldados dos quais 26.638 foram baixas, incluindo 7 mil mortos (10%) da força de ataque. Por seu lado, a defesa contava com 21.000 soldados japoneses, dos quais apenas 1%, 216 homens, foram capturados. 3.000 ficaram escondidos em cavernas e bunkers e foram aparecendo ao longo do tempo muito depois da batalha terminar e todos os outros morreram. A relação entre ataque e defesa foi de 3,3 soldados atacando para cada defensor.
Depois disso foi a vez da Ilha de Okinawa, a maior ilha mais ao sul do Japão, com terreno diversificado, florestas, montanhas população local etc. Apesar desta batalha ser mais importante para entender a lógica que levou ao emprego das armas nucleares, Ivo Jima é que é retratada pelo cinema.
Se os americanos acharam que os 38 dias de Ivo foram muito, Okinawa levou 82 dias, terminando no meio de junho de 1944 menos de dois meses antes da Bomba. Os americanos, desta vez lançaram 250.000 soldados contra ilha, dos quais 5% morreram (12.520) e outros 82.000 ficaram feridos).
A defesa japonesa foi também um teste para o Império em como defender as ilhas principais, o passo lógico seguinte na guerra. Havia 77.000 soldados regulares na ilha e 40.000 civis foram alistados e armados para a defesa. 24 mil deles compuseram uma milícia chamada Boeitai, 15.000 trabalhadores lutaram sem uniformes, 1.500 alunos de escolas, menores de idade, compuseram uma unidade de combates chamadas de “Ferro e Sangue”. Sete ataques com aviões kamikaze foram lançados contra as tropas de invasão envolvendo 1.500 aeronaves. Sem contar com estes pilotos mortos, os homens em armas no solo chegaram a 117.000, dos quais somente 6% (7.000) foram capturados. Os outros 110.000 foram mortos ou se mataram em ataques sem efeito militar ou em rituais de suicídio. Adicionalmente, 150.000 civis morreram.
Okinawa é definidor para compreender as bombas atômicas. Os americanos lançaram 2,3 soldados no ataque para cada soldado na defesa. Porcentagem praticamente 50% menor que na batalha anterior.
Os japoneses tinham 3 milhões de soldados para defender suas ilhas principais, mais o esquema de milícias de adultos e adolescentes, mais mulheres treinadas para atacar os invasores satânicos com lanças de bambu. Mantida a proporção de Okinawa, o que é uma estimativa baixa, haveria mais de 5 milhões de soldados e civis armados à espera das tropas norte-americanas. Para garantir a força de 2,3 para um, os americanos deveriam obrigatoriamente desembarcar 11,5 milhões de soldados no Japão, força que não existia, que se existisse não poderia ser nem transportada nem abastecida. Portanto, pela experiência de Okinawa, mesmo com a certeza confortável de vencer um inimigo que preferia desperdiçar suas tropas a obter ganhos reais, um ataque em tal escala era simplesmente impossível.
Ainda assim as baixas ao nível de Okinawa previstas para 37% atingiriam o número assustador de 4.255.000 americanos, dos quais, 1.100.000 seriam mortos. Totalmente inviabilizador. Pelo lado japonês as baixas esperadas seriam de 4.700.000 soldados mortos outros 7.000.000 de civis mortos.
Estes números não são exatos, mas simplesmente uma extrapolação estratégica em relação a última batalha com uma perspectiva OTIMISTA. Numa abordagem pessimista os números seriam consideravelmente maiores. Conta semelhante foi realizada tanto pelo comando americano quando pelo japonês, que sentiu-se MUITO CONFORTÁVEL com a perspectiva, que demonstrava claramente que os americanos não teriam nem homens nem equipamentos para conquistar o Japão e que este impacto de 12 milhões de vítimas japonesas nunca se realizaria, mas se fosse necessário poderia ser absorvido e ainda estava muito longe dos mais de 22 milhões de civis chineses que os nipônicos mataram.
A SUBMISSÃO PELO ATAQUE AÉREO
Tanto alemães quanto aliados tinham como estratégia de guerra a destruição das principais cidades uns dos outros imaginando que isso iria gerar um desejo nas populações civis de depor suas lideranças e terminar a guerra, rendendo-se ao inimigo. Era o pensamento vigente naquela época. Os alemães jamais construíram bombardeios capazes de realizar tal missão e apelaram para mísseis. Primeiro com as bombas voadores V1, depois com as V2. Já os britânicos e americanos desenvolveram vários modelos capazes de arrasar cidades. Esta estratégia jamais deu certo pois o atacado sempre usa o ataque contra si, como arma de propaganda para demonstrar a barbárie e o desprezo pela vida por parte do inimigo, e a população atingida fica apenas com mais vontade de resistir e levar seu país à vitória.
Com o Japão não foi diferente. A captura de Ivo Jima, permitiu que os americanos enviassem caças para escoltar seus bombardeiros contra o Japão. Cidade após cidade foi bombardeada com milhares de toneladas de bombas. Os americanos utilizavam napalm e incendiárias de fósforo branco nestes ataques. As construções japonesas baseadas em madeira e papel eram um alvo perfeito para isso.
Tóquio, a capital japonesa e onde vivia o Imperador Deus, foi bombardeada de 17 de novembro de 1944 ao dia da rendição japonesa, 15 de agosto de 1945. O total estimado de mortos nesta campanha foi de 200.000 e não há dados disponíveis sobre o total de feridos. Um milhão de pessoas perderam suas casas. Na noite do dia 9 para 10 de março de 1945, 334 aviões de bombardeio B-29 dos quais apenas 279 conseguiram atacar a cidade, lançaram 1.655 toneladas de bombas, incluindo ‘cluster bombs’ de 230 kg que liberavam 38 bombas menores incendiárias de napalm. Foram mortas 100.000 pessoas neste único ataque, considerado o mais devastador da história. Outras 125.000 ficaram feridas. Neste momento Tóquio possuía cerca de 6 milhões de habitantes, portanto as baixas foram de 3,7%. Mesmo com a capital devastada e alguns militares de alta patente questionando a falta de necessidade destas mortes indicando a rendição, o grupo militar e político que pretendia a luta a até a morte e contava com aquelas projeções da ‘invasão impossível’ que você leu acima prevaleceu.
Kyoto, por ser uma cidade histórica, foi poupada. Posteriormente incluída como quarta cidade para o ataque nuclear, foi descartada também.
O ATAQUE NUCLEAR
Igualmente, os americanos tinham a certeza de que não poderiam invadir as ilhas. O que se vende para as pessoas como ‘desculpa’ para o ataque nuclear, é uma simplificação do conceito de que “lançaram a bomba para salvar vidas americanas”. Neste estudo, onde apresentamos uma complicação deste conceito, você já entendeu que as coisas eram diferentes do que as pessoas imaginam que são.
O programa nuclear norte-americano levado da teoria à prática por vários cientistas judeus, baseados na ‘física degenerada’ de outro judeu, Albert Einstein, cujos estudos e trabalhos foram queimados na Alemanha Nazista (ainda bem), visava atacar a Alemanha e não o Japão. Mas a guerra na Europa acabou antes da primeira bomba estar operacional e ser testada.
Quando o presidente Truman recebeu a informação, ainda durante a Conferência de Potsdam na Europa de que a bomba de teste, chamada Trinity (Trindade), foi muito mais bem sucedida que qualquer um pudesse imaginar, ele ordenou a entrega de um ultimato ao Japão exigindo a rendição. Tal documento foi considerado pelos japoneses como uma atitude arrogante do ‘inimigo impossível’ e a guerra continuou. Truman mandou atacar.
No início de agosto de 1945 havia apenas duas cidades classificadas como médias e grandes no Japão que ainda não tinham sido destruídas por bombardeios convencionais: Hiroshima e Nagazaki. A imagem que é passada quando se fala apenas sobre Hiroshima é que teria sido uma escolha aleatória para levar o fogo do inferno aos civis japoneses. Mas só havia duas escolhas. A terceira cidade, definida com alvo era Kokura a de menor população entre as três, com 150.000 habitantes onde havia 2.800 prisioneiros de guerra americanos, ingleses e holandeses. 1.500 deles chegaram de navio na manhã do dia 9 de agosto, portanto o comando americano nem sabia disto. Kokura possuía um dos arsenais onde eram fabricados os fuzis e baionetas no exército. A praticamente impossível se definir que qualquer cidade pequena, média ou grande japonesa deixava de possuir algum alvo militar legítimo.
Ao contrário da propaganda soviética pós-guerra introjetada no inconsciente coletivo do mundo até hoje, Hiroshima não era uma cidade civil. No Japão ela era conhecida como Cidade Exército. É exatamente ao contrário do que a propaganda afirma. Hiroshima era a base do Segundo Exército Geral e do Exército Regional de Chugoku. O quartel general dos fuzileiros navais japoneses também se localizava lá. No momento do ataque nuclear em 6 de agosto de 1945 havia cerca de 350.000 habitantes e militares na cidade. 80.000 foram mortos imediatamente e até o final de 1945 outros 166.000 morreram em decorrência de ferimentos e radiação. Ainda assim, 104.000 sobreviveram, 29% da população. 77% dos prédios e casas da cidade foram destruídos. A cidade era praticamente plana.

Após este ataque novo ultimato para rendição foi enviado ao Japão, mas suas lideranças políticas e militares consideraram o ataque apenas como um novo formato com perdas aceitáveis, se bem que ainda não contabilizadas e entendidas corretamente. Naquele momento nem quem atacou nem quem foi alvo tinha qualquer ideia dos efeitos da radiação que afetaria os sobreviventes e mataria o dobro de pessoas em relação as que morreram pela explosão. Dentro da previsão da “invasão impossível”, o alto comando nipônico decidiu ignorar os americanos e manter a guerra.

Truman ordena então a utilização da segunda bomba atômica. No dia 8 de agosto a União Soviética declara guerra ao Japão. O alvo seria Kokura, mas estava encoberto e as ordens obrigavam pontaria visual e não por radar. Os Bs-29 do segundo ataque se dirigiram então para o alvo restante, Nagasaki, distante 100 km. Militarmente era uma cidade muito mais importante. Nagazaki possuía importantes estaleiros, a siderúrgica e fábricas de explosivos, armas e aviões de combate da Mitsubishi. Em 9 de agosto, dia do ataque nuclear havia 263.000 pessoas na cidade: 240.000 japoneses civis, 9.000 soldados, 10.000 residentes coreanos, 2.500 prisioneiros escravos coreanos, 600 chineses prisioneiros escravos e 400 prisioneiros de guerra aliados. O total de mortos atribuídos a explosão, ferimentos e radiação até o final do ano é de 80.000, ou seja 33%. A cidade não era plana, possuindo colinas e elevações.
Um terceiro ultimato foi enviado por Truman para Tóquio. E o alto comando japonês se dividiu. Os civis queriam a rendição e os militares queriam a luta até a morte de todas. Não houve consenso e o primeiro ministro japonês decidiu ser ousado e foi levar a questão pela primeira vez ao Imperador Deus Hiroito. Sabendo possuir a palavra final sobre todas as questões no Japão, e ainda com milhões de soldados ativos e não derrotados no continente, o Imperador decidiu dar um basta na carnificina e ordenou a rendição, não imediatamente, pois Tóquio continuava sendo bombardeada diariamente desde o dia 10 de agosto e havia um temor de que a próxima bomba atômica atingisse a já depauperada capital. Não sabiam os japoneses que sua capital não foi atacada desta forma por que não existiam outras bombas atômicas. As três construídas já haviam explodido.
No dia 15 o Japão se rendeu, com uma condição perversa, a de que o Imperador não fosse preso e julgado pelos crimes de guerra que suas tropas cometeram. Quem pregava um império de mil anos na Europa matou-se com um tiro na cabeça e quem pregava no Japão, ao seu povo o suicídio em seu nome não se matou, não foi julgado e foi mantido no poder, sucedido por seus descendentes até hoje.
A foto mais terrível da Segunda Guerra Mundial. Com um golpe de espada um oficial japonês corta o pescoço de uma jovem mãe chinesa nua e ensanguentada após cortar a cabeça do bebê dela inutilmente protegido em seus braços.

Uma consideração final. Da mesma forma que Stalin firmou um pacto de não agressão com Hitler, aliando inicialmente comunistas e nazistas, que chegaram a ocupar a Polônia simultaneamente, pacto este só desfeito quando a Alemanha decidiu invadira a União Soviética, os comunistas também possuíam um pacto de não-agressão com os fascistas-teocráticos japoneses, rompido apenas no dia 5 de agosto de 1945.

          Hány ország van a földön?        
Elég gyakran felmerülő földrajzi kérdés, hogy tulajdonképpen hány ország van a földön, másként hány ország van a világon? Természetesen ezt nehéz pontosan megállapítani, hiszen ahogyan a történelmet figyelemmel kísérjük, rengeteg állam jött és jön is létre az évszázadok, olykor évtizedek alatt, éppen úgy, ahogyan egyesek megszűnnek vagy integrálódnak más országokba.

A legelfogadottabb és legmegbízhatóbb adatok szerint a világ jelenleg 196 országot különböztet meg bolygónkon.

Ezt az adatot, más megbízható adatok is alátámasztják, melyek jól feltérképezik a világ országait és ezzel együtt arra is rámutat, hogy mely országokat nem ismer el az adott szervezet, tehát kvázi mely országokat hagyja ki a számításából.

Ilyen például az Egyesült Nemzetek Szervezete (ENSZ), angol nevén United Nations, melynek 193 tagja van. Ellentétben a gyakori tévhittel, ez a szám nem reprezentálja a földön található összes országot. Nyilván való, hogy vannak az ENSZ-től elkülönülő független országok, ilyen például a Vatikán és Koszovó.

Az Egyesült Államok külügyminisztériuma 195 országot különböztet meg a világon. Ez a lista viszont politikai okokból nem ismeri el különálló országként Taiwant, mely 1971-ig az ENSZ-nek is tagja volt.

Érdemes megemlíteni a témával kapcsolatban, hogy vannak olyan tartományok, régiók, melyek bár a köztudatban gyakran országként jelennek meg, valójában nem rendelkeznek a független állam címével, illetve bizonyos irányítási szerepet más ország gyakorolja felettük. Erre kiváló példa Észak-Írország, Skócia, Wales, Anglia.

Biztosak vagyunk benne, hogy néhány olvasónkat egészen konkrétan érdekli, hogy mely országok tartoznak a nagy 196-os listába, ezért elkészítettük a listát az országokhoz tartozó fővárosokkal. Ne tévesszen meg senkit, hogy egy országhoz adott esetben több főváros is tartozik. Bizonyos országok több főváros kijelölésével oldják meg közigazgatási ügyintézésüket.

          Farola Series: Faro de Cabo Engaño (Palaui Island Lighthouse)        
The northeastern most tip of the main island of Luzon harbors a lonely yet beautiful sentinel of the sea Рthe lighthouse of Palaui Island, officially named Cape Enga̱o Lighthouse or Farol de Cabo Enga̱o by the Spaniards. The lighthouse of Cape Enga̱o is situated on top of a hill, overlooking a beautiful cove, a rolling hill reminiscent of Batanes landscapes, the nearby islands of Dos Hermanas and the vast sea where Pacific Ocean and Babuyan Channel meet. It was built in 1888 and first...Continue Reading "Farola Series: Faro de Cabo Enga̱o (Palaui Island Lighthouse)"

          Push Ups - Vol. I by Aleix Gordo Hostau        
 
PUSH UPS Vol. I (Bocetos, dibujos y sueños)
Este libro es una compilación de las mejores páginas de todas las libretas que he rellenado durante estos años, fruto de la libertad creativa y la tranquilidad (o no) del dibujar por el placer de dibujar, razón primordial del porqué decidí hacer de esto mi profesión.
El libro tiene un formato de 15x21cm, 144 páginas de buen gramaje a todo color y tapa dura forrada con tela negra. La idea es hacer un facsímil lo más parecido posible al formato y apariencia de las libretas donde dibujo normalmente. El contenido incluye bocetos a lápiz, diseño de personajes, escenas oníricas, estudios de tinta, ideas varias y dibujos realizados durante varios viajes, en especial el que realicé a Japón hace dos años.

You’ve been through the hard part of trying everything you could think of and nothing worked. You’ve gone through the break-up, and you realize that there’s noting left to do but to move on. But, your heart has been broken and you don’t know how or where to start ”moving on”. This spell will help you to focus on moving in a more positive direction, one step at a time. It will begin to open up opportunities to build yourself up and strengthen your inner being in such a way that you actually begin to feel empowered by what you’ve been through! Not only will you find yourself moving on, but you’ll find yourself moving in a much more positive direction. The funny thing is, that others around you actually start feeling Tempte http://lovepsychicabuba.co.za lovemaster9191@gmail.com http://youtu.be/DgquSyIjUII www.joinilluminatitoday.co.za http://howtojoinilluminatitodayegypt.weebly.com http://papanaide.co.za

Energy is energy! There really are no major differences in the casting of a love spell for a gay man or a lesbian woman, a straight lesibian man or heterosexual woman, the approach is pretty much the same. In my line of work when it comes to gay clients I have found a serious lack of understanding or compassion on the behalf of other practitioners for their gay and lesbian clients, being a gay man myself, I have worked hard over the years to develop a rapport with my gay and lesbian clientele, with that said I have also managed to maintain a positive rapport with my straight clients as well, working metaphysically on behalf of clients is easy once you develop a good understanding of the base needs and realize that we all are simply human and it is within our nature to love and to be loved. Now, aside from the fact that we are all human, whether we are straight or gay, when it comes to gay magic, there are a few minor tweaks in the magical approach that must be acknowledged and put into play to successfully unite or reunite same sex lovers. I have worked hard over the course of my magical career to develop a series of rituals and spells that I utilize specifically for my gay and lesibian clients. If you are a gay man or lesbian woman who is in need of attracting a new lover, or perhaps your desire is to reunite with an old flame, I can help you manifest your desires and realize your goal of bringing that special someone into your life. If you are single and looking to attract a brand new lover, click the link above to order a "Gay Love Spell" to get started. If you are a gay man or lesbian woman looking to reunite with your lover, you will need to order my .

Energy is energy! There really are no major differences in the casting of a love spell for a gay man or a lesbian woman, a straight lesibian man or heterosexual woman, the approach is pretty much the same. In my line of work when it comes to gay clients I have found a serious lack of understanding or compassion on the behalf of other practitioners for their gay and lesbian clients, being a gay man myself, I have worked hard over the years to develop a rapport with my gay and lesbian clientele, with that said I have also managed to maintain a positive rapport with my straight clients as well, working metaphysically on behalf of clients is easy once you develop a good understanding of the base needs and realize that we all are simply human and it is within our nature to love and to be loved. Now, aside from the fact that we are all human, whether we are straight or gay, when it comes to gay magic, there are a few minor tweaks in the magical approach that must be acknowledged and put into play to successfully unite or reunite same sex lovers. I have worked hard over the course of my magical career to develop a series of rituals and spells that I utilize specifically for my gay and lesibian clients. If you are a gay man or lesbian woman who is in need of attracting a new lover, or perhaps your desire is to reunite with an old flame, I can help you manifest your desires and realize your goal of bringing that special someone into your life. If you are single and looking to attract a brand new lover, click the link above to order a "Gay Love Spell" to get started. If you are a gay man or lesbian woman looking to reunite with your lover, you will need to order my . Either way I look forward to working with you and if you have any questions call the number listed on the website or use the contact form on the right side of the site to contact me. http://lovepsychicabuba.co.za http://papanaide.co.za http://youtu.be/DgquSyIjUII http://howtojoinilluminatitodayegypt.weebly.com http://joinilluminatitoday.co.za

Trust Territory Photo Archives contains 6,000 images selected from an archive of 52,000 photographs and slides documenting the American period in Micronesia between 1947 and 1988. It provides details on the Trust Territory Photograph Collection and links to information on the Trust Territories today, mostly in the form of government websites.

The Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands comprises three major Micronesian archipelagoes in the Pacific Ocean. These groups of islands, the Marshalls, Carolines, and Marianas, came under the control of the United States as a United Nations (UN) strategic trusteeship following World War II. This was one of 11 trusteeships established across the world by the UN at this time covering areas once controlled by defeated powers. The Trust Territory is unusual within an international context because the transitional arrangement remained in effect until 1990. The territories remain strongly tied to the United States, with the islands of the Northern Marianas designated U.S. commonwealth territory, and the other three localities (the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Republic Of Palau) in compacts of "free association" with the United States, which controls their defense.

The images in the collection are an extensive record of American views of Micronesian peoples, society, and culture and of the interaction between the United States and the Trust Territories. The photographs were mostly taken by those either employed by the government or closely associated with it. While the photographs are extremely diverse, a sense of the focus of the collection can be gained by the "Photo Gallery Displays." This presents nine broadly defined topics from the collection as a useful introduction to the material. They include themes such as "Parades," "Dancing," "Health/Hospitals," and "Architecture." The disadvantage of this function is the lack of any caption to identify or contextualize the photographs, rendering the collection of "Leaders," for example, largely meaningless for anyone not familiar with the politics of the region. The same photographs can be accessed through the search function, however.

The archive contains a large number of photographs of children. Searches of "boy" (94), "girl"(144), "child" (43), "children" (172), "infant" (2), "family" (26), "play" (7), and "school" (529). These results are indicative of good captioning and a well designed database. The images appear as thumbnails linked to a larger version with metadata, and even a means of adding user comments that must be accompanied by a name and/or e-mail address. The search results yielded photographs of children going about their normal lives with their families, in groups in the landscape, creating crafts, and participating in community or national activities.

Although the photographs are captioned and dated, these captions do not provide very much context. By comparing dates, settings, and the type of activity, these photographs of children document a transformation of individual and communal life under the influence of Americans. Images of a child at a well, shelling copra, your girls weaving, or a family preparing breadfruit seem to show a life that was closer to the period before contact. Other images show hospital and school buildings, girl scout troops, a home-made processions for visiting dignitaries and a general regimentation of communal life around nascent nationhood.

One striking difference among the photographs, which are identified with various islands, is the transition from traditional customs of dress for boys and girls to the wearing of European-style dresses and pants for boys. The archive includes many scenes of traditional line dancing in grass or wrapped fabric skirts, flowers and jewelry, in which young girls did not wear bodices. Other images show the girls performing similar dances wearing ruffled dresses with bodices, made from imported cotton fabrics. Girl Scout uniforms, nurses' attire, and formal European dress mark other images, especially of official scenes. The images show that children's dance and song performances were incorporated into national cultural displays, to which flag processions and other symbols were added.

Scholarly interest in the issue of imperialism with reference to the United States has paid less attention to the question of Micronesia than to other locations, such as the Philippines. The advantage of this site is that it provides extensive primary sources related to this issue. For students of world history it provides a visual record of cultural contact in a situation of quasi-colonialism that continued well into the 20th century.

In this regard, Robert Aldrich and John Connell's The Last Colonies 1 is a particularly useful companion to the site for teachers of world history interested in using it in this way. Aldrich and Connell situate Micronesia within a global discussion of territories formally dependent upon metropolitan powers. Given the relative unfamiliarity of many students with this topic and region, teachers may find the following resources useful: Gary Smith, Micronesia: Decolonisation and U.S. Military Interests in the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands takes a geopolitical perspective and argues that U.S. control over the islands of Micronesia "was the strategic equivalent to the Soviet Union's control over Eastern Europe." 2 For Smith, local demands for self-determination were sacrificed to U.S. strategic and defense interests. Francis X. Hezel's The New Shape of Old Island Cultures: A Half Century of Social Change in Micronesia 3 explores social history more broadly, is focused on the same period as the site, and makes extensive use of the Photographic Archive.

          Pequeno conto de ano novo        
Há muitos, muitos anos de entre todas as espécies animais que povoam o planeta Terra uma começou a sobressair pela sua capacidade de inventar utensílios e desenvolver relações sociais complexas. Essa espécie foi designada de Homo Sapiens (HS) e no seu começo era uma espécie que migrava para fugir do clima adverso e perseguir alimentação. No entanto a sua superior capacidade intelectual permitiu-lhe domesticar animais, desenvolver a agricultura e desenvolver formas de mitigar os desafios do clima. Essas características únicas fizeram com que o HS se tornasse aos poucos numa espécie sedentária.

Com o desenvolvimento tecnológico o HS colonizou todos os continentes da Terra. Alguns exemplares mais afoitos desta espécie peculiar sedentarizaram-se em zonas do planeta que desafiavam a capacidade de sobrevivência de uma espécie terrestre como é o HS. Zonas de terrenos muito instáveis como são um Delta de um rio ou um Atol no oceano.
Os deltas dos rios são criados pela deposição de sedimentos trazidos pelos próprios rios e caracterizam-se por serem zonas pantanosas com grande variabilidade de altura e e sujeitas a inundações frequentes. Um Atol é uma formação de corais em redor de um vulcão que ao crescer cria ilhas normalmente de forma circular ou oval.  Ao crescer o Atol (que não é rochoso) acaba por colapsar sobre o seu próprio peso e afundar-se no oceano.

O engenho do HS deu-lhe a capacidade de resistir cada vez melhor aos fenómenos naturais e o que antigamente provocava morte e destruição com o decorrer dos séculos deixou quase de afectar o dia-a-dia do HS. Uma consequência desse desenvolvimento foi o aumento exponencial do números de exemplares de HS no planeta. As pequenas comunidades nos deltas do rio Mississipi e Mekong ou nos Atoís de Tuvalu e Maldivas tornaram-se em cidades. Os mesmo rigores do clima que antigamente vitimavam dezenas nestas regiões hoje desalojam milhares que são vistos em todo o globo através de invenções do HS como a televisão ou a internet.

Não só a capacidade inventiva caracteriza o HS. A memória curta e o fascínio por histórias apocalípticas de fim do mundo também. No final do Séc. XX o número de HS na Terra se aproximou dos sete mil milhões. Alguns destes criaram a fantasia de que esta espécie estava a criar aquecimento global no planeta, a aumentar da frequência e severidade de fenómenos metereológicos e a elevar perigosamente o nível médio das águas do mar. Estes HS sonham mudar o planeta para que ninguém tenha que de mudar de casa. 
Estes HS esqueceram-se que os seus antepassados jamais deveriam ter construído as suas casas em regiões naturalmente inóspitas para a sua espécie. A tecnologia do HS ainda não conseguiu tornar esta espécie anfíbia.

          El gol de la clasificación para River        

(Incluye videos) El Millonario caía 1 a 0 y la tensión aumentaba, pero apareció Pinola para decretar el empate parcial y darle un respiro al Más Grande. ¡Vamos, campeón!

Gol 2

El partido ante Guaraní tuvo mucha tensión. Es que el equipo paraguayo se puso en ventaja en el mismísimo Estadio Monumental, sembrando incertidumbre y nerviosismo en los hinchas del Más Grande. Cuando la primera etapa llegaba a su fin, y tras una desatención defensiva, el elenco de Paraguay se puso en ventaja con gol de Marcelo Palau.

Gol 1

Sin embargo, apareció Javier Pinola. Tras una serie de rebotes y de que Lucas Alario esté a punto de decretar el empate parcial, el defensor le arrebató el grito al Pipa rematando de manera desesperante y marcó el gol que dio tranquilidad al Millonario. De esta forma, El Más Grande avanzó a cuartos de final. ¡Vamos, campeón!

          Visit back to Samoa - Part One        
A bit late, but finally my update from my trip back to Samoa since I left Peace Corps December 2007.

March 23 (Friday)
Flight to Samoa - I was looking forward to going back, but also really nervous. It is a hard thing to describe to people who have not been in the Peace Corps before. But the trip was not going to be a vacation. It was a visit, a visit to friends and family. I felt like there was a lot of expectations on my part. I tried to study up on my Samoan in preparation for the visit. It's hard when I felt like I still knew Samoan, but haven't heard it spoken in 4 years really. Other than a few words here and there by fellow volunteers. I was however, really looking forward to going back.

My father and I were traveling back to Samoa together for my first visit back since I left Peace Corps. My dad had been to Samoa twice before to visit me, so nothing would be new to him, but I was still hoping he enjoyed the trip. I didn't want to only have visits with family, but also have a chance to fit in some touring and site seeing. I wished my husband was able to come with me, too. This place shaped me. It's a big part of who I am now. But I think maybe the first trip back it was better to visit with my dad who was familiar with the culture.

I was looking forward to a few things I thought I would never miss: the kids singing loudly during church (miss that so much), breadfruit, taro, palusami, etc.

March 24 (Saturday)
There were so many things I wanted to do, but everything was closed becaue it was Saturday. I should have known. Dad was really tired from all the traveling. He went to bed at 6pm before the dinner bell even rang.

First experience in the country. We arrived in Samoa. We were sitting on the shuttle at the airport to take us to our hotel. The airport is not close to the Capitol. If you can take the Aggie Greys Hotel shuttle it is so much cheaper than taking a taxi. Anyway, I was looking back at the airport and saw someone I thought I knew. I was right. I was Tasi. When I taught at Uesiliana College, he was a teacher there. So I went over to talk to him (in Samoan). He remembered me. He told me, he and his wife had actually just left the school and got a pastoralship in a village on the main island. (later in the week after talking to other teachers I found out he was teasing me. He is now the Vice Principal of the school).

For lunch I really wanted to eat at Gourmet Seafood. I always remember the fish burgers there as being THE. BEST. FISH. BURGERS. EVER. they ended up being okay. They weren't AMAZING, but they were good.

For some reason I felt nervous at first speaking Samoan. I think it must be what the Apia based volunteers felt like. Like, well everyone speaks English anyways, so it's no big deal. I felt however like I needed to force myself to be bold and speak it. The women at the front desk liked that I practiced it with them and were really helpful getting me to rememember words. The Lord did not give us a spirit of timidity, but of power.

There are little things I forgot about. The rain. The rain is so loud and heavy in Samoa it overpowers your mind and soul. The ants. The ants are crazy tiny you can barely see them. They got into my toiletry bag within an hour of arriving at the hotel. The mo'os, or geckos. They make a loud chirping noise and they are all over. I had to keep reminding myself that chirping noise was the geckos. The smell of stale air in an air conditioned room. The dirt on your feet in Apia. That dryness on your hair and skin after moving from outside to an air conditioned room. How uncomfortable I always felt. I think I was uncomfortable the first entire year I was in the Peace Corps. Lots of little things like that I missed and had forgotten.

March 25 (Sunday)
It rained really hard over the night. There were rivers running in front of the hotel rooms. I also heard a dogfight in the middle of the night. I remember in Peace Corps how miserable those made me my first year because I was not able to sleep through them and they were so loud and so often. I also will never forgot the morning my neighbor asked me if I heard the dogfight in the middle of the night and I realized I had NOT! I had slept through it! My first night back in country, I was not able to sleep through it. There was something familiar about it though.

I was glad that dad had brought his coffee press with him on our trip because one thing I did not miss from my volunteer time was Nescafe. The breakfast was amazing. Panikeke, papaya, chocolate rice, and my absolute favorite Samoan food, vi! For those of you who have never had it, Vi is like a mix between a pear and an apple. And the core is spikey.

One of my students works at Aggies. Epati. I think he was my year 10 and 11 while I was there. I handed that class off to my counterpart so I didn't get to know that class as well as the year 12 and 13. He was a server at the hotel. He remembered me. I recognized him at first and then asked him if he remembered me. I was so excited to see one of my students working at a great restaurant.

We went to church our first Sunday in country. We went to Peace Chapel. When I was a volunteer I was fairly sick often. I was very good friends with the Peace Corps nurse. She attends that church. Whenever I was sick and had to stay the night in the Capitol, I would attend that church with her and a couple other volunteers. So, I had a good group of friends I knew that went there. Some of them were still there. It was so fun seeing them. The pastor remembered me.

During the day since everything was closed we drove over the cross-island road to see the waterfall. Last time my parents were visiting the weather was too foggy and we couldn't see it. The weather wasn't that great on the top of the mountain, but we could still see the waterfall running strongly. Then we continued over to the other side. I was amazed at how little damage was still evident from the tsunami. The country rebuilt very well.

We ate dinner at Italianos. I remembered it not being the best pizza, but cheap and a fun spot. My memory was correct. :-) But, I had my first Vailima since leaving country. It really is a decent beer. It was a cold evening. I ended up having to wear my jeans, t-shirt and long sleeve shirt.

March 26 (Monday)
We had lunch with Teuila. She told me I am not the sickest volunteer anymore. Still the only one to get malaria. But there are fewer volunteers now. There are currently only 16 volunteers in the country. There were like 60 when I was there. They only have 1 group a year come in, and there was not a group last year. They only teach in the primary schools now (which are like elementary schools).

We had dinner with an old student of mine, Togipau. She works at one of the banks in the Capitol. While we were having dinner we noticed another one of my students working at Aggies. After dinner with Togipau, I drove her home. She was staying with a former teacher I taught with, Feao. Feao left halfway thru my first year in country. I missed her so much. It was so wonderful to see her, chat in Samoan, see how huge her children had gotten, and meet her mom.

March 27 (Tuesday)
We finally got to meet up with Laupama. When I was a volunteer she was my family. She is 10 years older than me, but like a sister to me. Her family was my family. We drove around the village asking in Samoan where her house was. We stopped and asked students and asked a teacher, eventually we found her house. When we got there, we sat down with her and her kids and gave them our presents from the states. They were so happy to see us. Seti, the youngest daughter kept calling me her palagi (foreign or white) aunt.


Something happened to me today. It is hard to describe, but it is like my brain opened up and handed me my memory of the Samoan language. Dad and I were sitting in the car and words I never thought I remembered were coming back to me. For the rest of the trip speaking in Samoan wasn't a problem, until the end of the trip when I started getting tired and words stopped coming to my brain.

Laupama asked if I wanted to help her and the other pastors wives weed today. When I was a volunteer I used to love sitting with the women, weeding, chatting and being social. So I walked what seemed like 5 miles in the heat with her and a few other women, but in reality was probably only 5 or 6 blocks. We didn't weed at first. We were sweeping up the grass clippings from the mowed lawn. I had a broom. I was being stubborn and trying to keep up with the rest of the women. They kept telling me to rest. After about 15 minutes I had heat exhaustion. They were making fun of me. Rightly so. I ended up quitting and sitting with the kids who were practicing their singing. They kept teasing me the rest of the evening. Calling me stubborn. Saying I wasn't used to the Samoan sun. Which was true.

The first evening we ate dinner with Viliamu, Laupamas husband. I used to eat with the entire family. Dad said something about not treating us as guests, but family and after that we ate as a family together.

March 28 (Wednesday)
We walked over to the school. This school is the sister school to where I used to teach. I toured their computer lab. It looked great. They had two computer labs, flat screens in one of the labs, three computer teachers and one Japanese Volunteer helping teach (the Japanese Volunteers are called JICA in Samoa). One of my students was teaching at the school now! My last year in Samoa, he had received the highest marks on the international computer test out of all of the south pacific countries. He is now teaching Economics at this school, is married and has an adorable new baby boy. It was really fun to see him again, meet his wife, hear about his wedding, and catch up.

Dad and I watched Laupama coach Netball. For those of you who don't know what Netball is, it's like basketball without all the things we love about basketball. There is no dribbling, no guarding really, no contact, no backboard, etc. Dad even played a little with them, but he couldn't get over the whole no backboard thing.

That evening after dad and I helped Laupama get the evening church service space ready for church, we made Easter eggs. I had brought an egg coloring kit with me as one of my gifts. When I was a volunteer one of the activities I had done with the girls was color eggs on Easter. They loved it. They didn't want to eat the eggs and brought them to school the next day. Since Easter was soon after I would leave country, I thought the coloring kit was an appropriate gift. All day long, while we were visiting, Seti kept asking when we could color them. The oldest girl, Lesa, is an amazing artist and she was really being articulate with the eggs. I hadn't seen such detail in a long time. We made a mess and decorated every egg Laupama had in her house. It was one of my favorite evenings in country.

March 29 (Thursday)
Dad and I got up early to take the boat over to Savai'i. Laupama packed us a lunch for the trip. It was chicken and it was amazing. We kept telling her, at her own prodding, that she should open up her own restaurant.

I was really excited while the boat docked into Salelologa on Savai'i. It was a trip I had taken so often while in Peace Corps and it still felt so familiar. The coast line of Salelologa had changed, but it hadn't changed. There was a new building. One building was a different color. The side road I used to bike down was now the main road, but it was still undeveloped except the outdoor market had moved there. The market has a nice parking lot and bus area.

As we drove to Gataivai where we were staying for the night, it was similar. The church that was under construction my entire 2 years of service was still under construction, abandoned now really. The pasture of cows were still there. I remember Lesa teaching me the Samoan word for cows at that pasture, Povi. Palauli had a new police station and a very large new church, but for the most part, nothing had really changed. And I liked that.

We briefly took the side rode through Satupaitea on our way to Gataivai. School was getting out. I missed that view of the crater and the bay.

Our first night on Savai'i, we stayed in Gataivai with the pastor of the village, who had been the principal of my school when I was there. It was a nice house. He wasn't home yet when we arrived so we drove up to the blowholes in Taga for the afternoon. The last time my father was visiting we went to the blowholes, but they were not going. They were really going this time. When you first get to the road down to the blowholes one of the elders of the village gets in the car with you to accompany you down there. That threw dad off a bit, but he rolled with it. This elder remembered me. I used to visit the volunteer that lived in Taga often. I would ride my bike up, stay a night or two and ride back. Once I got in trouble with the male teachers at my school for riding my bike back from her village early in the morning in the dark... in the rain... without a flashlight. I never did that again. Anyway, this man remembered me and he definitely remembered her. She still stays in touch with members of her village. Dad and I got some great shots of the water and coconuts shooting up hundreds of feet in the air.


When we arrived back at the pastors house I helped him (or tried) to fix a few computers and electronics. Two teachers from my school were staying there that evening because the village was having a huge wedding the next day and the teachers were building a bed as a gift for the couple from the pastor. It was so fun to see them. One was married with a daughter. He has been to Japan since I left and stayed with the japanese volunteer that lived at the school the same time I did. The other teacher was still single and they teased him often about looking for a wife. A former student from my school stopped by to say hi, too. I didn't teach him, but he remembered me. He is learning the piano and writing his own songs. He was really good.

That evening dad and I wandered over to the singing practice that was taking place next to the pastors house. Dad loves listening to Samoans sing. They are so harmonized. While we were sitting there watching the singing some of the men of the village were sitting behind us drinking 'ava. I noticed people motioning for them to offer some to dad, so I let him know it was coming. I told him to drink the cup all at once and not to sip it. He did. The kids watching loved it! The men offered him a second cup and he drank that as well. The kids were dying. They offered him a third cup and he declined politely. He was so happy they offered him 'ava. First time for him.

I heard one of my students is training to be a pastor. I am so proud of my students. Seeing them working different jobs around the country has been awesome.

I could hear the waves from the house. I missed that. Hearing the waves every night crashing on the reef. Very loud, close, but in the distance.

More tomorrow on the rest of the trip. Until then... Hope you are staying cool. God bless air con.

Whether you’re juggling work, school, family, or just the demands of daily life, everyone needs a little break and a new adventure sometimes.

But knowing what to do once your vacation starts can turn what’s supposed to be fun into a lot of work.

          Hora de despertar        







Atrapados. El navío azulgrana sigue hundiéndose en un remolino de derrotas que lo empuja al abismo. La situación en la que se encuentra es delicada: el conjunto azulgrana ha perdido los últimos cuatro partidos y el Palau ha dejado de ser un fortín. Primero el CSKA y más tarde el Blusens Monbus demostraron recientemente que el Barça ya no está seguro ni en su propio feudo. El equipo azulgrana ocupa una merecida octava posición con tan solo un 50% de victorias y viendo peligrar la última plaza que da acceso a la Copa del Rey. Para más inri, el equipo blanco viene al Palau como gigante, con un casillero de derrotas inmaculado y desarrollando un juego vistoso y atractivo; mucho más efectivo y contundente que el año anterior. El equipo de Pablo Laso ha crecido mientras que el de Pascual ha envejecido. El año pasado un Madrid aún en construcción destronó el rey y estuvo a un paso de ganar la liga. Aquel Barça sacó su orgullo para levantarse de las duras caídas que recibió en los primeros dos enfrentamientos a domicilio para imponerse al eterno rival. ¿Estábamos presenciando su último coletazo?

El año anterior la balanza estaba nivelada, pero ha habido cambios desde entonces: un equipo ha incrementado su valor y el otro parece haberse devaluado. La valentía de continuar el proyecto Laso está dando sus réditos; el Madrid ha madurado. Sigue acusando de algunas desconexiones durante el partido, pero su contrincante no puede presumir precisamente de regularidad. El ataque azulgrana ha perdido fluidez, los exteriores no son tan certeros, ni la defensa tan asfixiante.

Al conjunto blanco le gusta correr, pero este año además defiende mejor. En la competición doméstica no ha habido equipo capaz de detenerle, pero ningún equipo posee un juego interior como el azulgrana. En un par de días, asistiremos al choque de dos estilos opuestos, enfrentados incluso. El Barça tiene sus opciones de ganar, no tantas como el Madrid, pero las tiene: debe realizar un juego lento y trabado, muy duro defensivamente, y mostrar especial atención a los contraataques y transiciones rápidas con las que Laso intentará ametrallar la defensa azulgrana, una defensa menos compacta e intimidante.

El Madrid tiene, en mi humilde opinión, el mejor juego exterior de Europa, y eso es mucho decir. El temporero mallorquín ha vuelto para convertirse en estrella blanca y ser el líder de un equipo grande, muy grande; quizá no en centímetros, pero si en talento. El Madrid desarrolla ese estilo de juego precisamente porque puede, y quien crea que lo puede detener que lo intente. A ese ritmo, el Barça no ganará el encuentro, es más, no ofrecerá oposición. El acierto blanco se ha mostrado muy superior a lo largo de la temporada, con un juego mucho más fluido y menos programado, un juego más libre y creativo.

Los exteriores blancos añaden un plus que el Barça no tiene, y es que todos pueden tirar con fiabilidad, pues sus porcentajes, incluso siendo bien punteados, son muy altos. Jugadores como Carroll y Rudy son los máximos exponentes de ese don escaso, pero no debemos olvidar a Mirotic ni a Llull; el Madrid puede convertirse en un bombardero con capacidad para dinamitar el Palau.

En la pintura contraria, el Barça tiene la oportunidad de castigar el equipo blanco con sus poderosos interiores, hombres como Tomic, Jawai o Lorbek deben mostrarse más contundentes que nunca. Viendo tal desequilibrio, es probable que el Madrid opte por una defensa en zona, en especial si el conjunto azulgrana no cuenta con la permanente amenaza que supone Navarro desde más allá de la línea de tres.

El Barça necesita esta complicada victoria para aliviar la tensión de vivir al filo de la navaja, y vencer al invicto de la competición sería un golpe moral que podría servir para reactivar su engranaje. Ahora mismo todo se ve negro, pero hay que recordar que si había un momento de la temporada en el que se podía permitir ese bache de juego era precisamente ahora. Eso sí, tienen que despertar ya.

El Top 16 no los esperará y los escasos boletos para la Copa tienen muchos compradores. El Barça aún está a tiempo de rectificar el rumbo, cambiar la tendencia, dar un golpe sobre la mesa para detener la hecatombe que supondría quedarse fuera de la Copa del Rey, recordemos que en el 2006 ya lo hizo; y ganó.





Retrasar un año más una era de dominio blanco que ya se empieza a vislumbrar.

          Objetivo: conquistar Europa        


El vigente campeón de liga encara un nuevo curso. Este año, el alumno más aventajado del baloncesto nacional sí parece haber hecho los movimientos adecuados para mejorar una plantilla que la temporada pasada demostró haber empeorado. Así pues, con las nuevas incorporaciones, el Barça cubre carencias evidentes y mejora en posiciones necesarias.

La columna vertebral es la misma: un Navarro cada vez más lastrado e intermitente debido a las lesiones, pero que sigue siendo el líder indiscutible del conjunto azulgrana.


Los directores de juego seguirán siendo Huertas y Sada, este último tras pelear una dura renovación de contrato. Se espera que Marcelinho, en su segunda temporada en el club, demuestre el nivel para el que se le fichó, pues aunque fue vital en la consecución de la liga con aquel triple imposible, en poco más ayudó al equipo; una sombra de lo que fue. 
Algunos dirán que ensombrecido por el monopolio que a veces ejerce Navarro en la ofensiva azulgrana, pero sin obviar ese factor, el dominio del pick&roll que practicaba en el Caja Laboral se convirtió en pobre tras su llegada a Barcelona; sus elecciones fueron erróneas en demasiadas ocasiones. Hará un año que un Huertas inseguro e indeciso aterrizó en la ciudad condal, esperemos que en el presente curso desembarque el Marcelinho que fichamos.

Sada se ha mostrado rebelde este verano, sabe que es un jugador que no abunda en Europa, su físico desde la posición de base le da ventaja, una ventaja que, hay que decirlo, en ataque no sabe aprovechar. Un jugador tremendamente limitado ofensivamente, pero pieza clave en defensa para secar a los base/escolta rivales. Veremos si su paso por la selección, y el papel activo que ha tenido en ella, le ha servido para crecer en confianza, pues su talento, escaso, da poco más de si.

Es en el espacio entre ambos donde situamos a Sarunas Jasikevicius, el veterano base lituano se une al proyecto azulgrana para fortalecer el talón de Aquiles que el Barça sufrió el año pasado tras la marcha de dos grandes tiradores como eran Jaka Lakovic y Gianluca Basile. Pues con su salida, exceptuando a Navarro, el equipo estaba huérfano de tiradores fiables desde más allá del 6.75.



Un regreso tardío a mi entender. El retorno de un rey. Uno de los arquitectos de una época dorada vuelve al club que siente como suyo para mostrar que el talento que atesora no envejece. El veterano base lituano ha demostrado en los JJOO que aún es capaz de hacer jugar, dirigir y decidir. Los minutos que le dará Xavi Pascual serán pocos, los suficientes y necesarios para que pueda rendir, a sus 36 años, de la mejor forma posible.
Saras es un arma nueva para este Barça, no solo por su fiabilidad en el tiro de tres, sino por su capacidad de coger el timón y enderezar el rumbo cuando las aguas se muestren más embravecidas.




Rejuvenecer desde dentro

La marcha de dos grandes intimidadores como son Fran Vázquez y Boniface Ndong resta potencial defensivo a un equipo que, en muchos partidos, vive de él. Veremos como se encaja el golpe de prescindir de jugadores capaces de vivir por encima del aro, más aún cuando en la pasada temporada tuvieron partidos sensacionales, en especial Ndong, convirtiéndose en sustento del equipo.
Pero las nuevas incorporaciones no tienen nada que desdeñar en cuanto a talento, un talento distinto; sí. Pero dependiendo de como lo trabaje Pascual; mejor.
La primera gran victoria del Barça esta temporada es Erazem Lorbek, un jugador que parecía perdido rumbo a San Antonio y que han conseguido convencerle para que desoyera los cantos de sirena procedentes del Alamo. Lorbek es, probablemente, el 4 con mejores fundamentos del viejo continente, cuenta con un tiro excelso y un registro de movimientos que ni su lentitud de ejecución logra lastrarlo suficentemente como para convertirlo en un jugador fácil de detener.
Veremos como se adapta al cambio de pareja interior, pues sus nuevos acompañantes (Ante Tomic y Nathan Jawai) volaran muy raso, casi tanto como él.
El robo de la perla croata al conjunto blanco dará mucho de que hablar esta temporada. Su rendimiento será observado con lupa, en especial en los enfrentamientos con el eterno rival. A priori, el movimiento del Barça ha sido muy acertado, pues le quitas al máximo rival su pieza más doliente, desde tu óptica, para convertirla en azote blanco. Tomic es un jugador de una calidad técnica gigante, pero endeble en defensa. Un talento sin techo aún, pero que de mejorar en garra e intensidad, su techo no está en Europa. Veremos si el severo Xavi Pascual logra inocular en la sangre del joven talento croata una pizca de la intensidad con la que juegan sus compañeros. De no ser así, a Pascual no le temblará el pulso si debe mandarlo al banquillo.

Nathan Jawai viene para blindar la pintura, el aborigen australiano recuerda en juego y cuerpo al heleno Sofoklis Schortsanitis, en sus repetidos enfrentamientos con el conjunto azulgrana se pudo apreciar que era un jugador dañino en la zona, muy difícil de defender e imposible de detener sin mandar ayudas. Veremos hasta donde le respetan los árbitros, pues es fácil que al mínimo choque se castigue al voluminoso pívot azulgrana.




Cambio de jugadores, variaciones del sistema

El Barça necesitará remodelar su juego tanto a nivel defensivo como ofensivo pues su renovado juego interior no será capaz de ejecutar las acciones que tan bien finalizaban Fran Vasquez y Ndong tras alley-oop de Navarro. Quizá el talentoso escolta pierda capacidad de asistir. El conjunto azulgrana pierde potencial por encima del aro, pero lo gana debajo. Los nuevos interiores pueden ser más activos que sus antecesores. Su juego en el poste bajo, para el que los equipos rivales necesitarán ayudas, provocará que haya más espacios, y se podrán conseguir buenas posiciones de tiro con mayor facilidad que la temporada anterior, eso siempre y cuando el movimiento de balón sea ágil y, en buena medida, automatizado.

El Barça aumenta su peligrosidad desde el perímetro con la llegada de Saras, territorio que el año pasado era coto exclusivo de Navarro. Vuelve un emblema con capacidad de exaltar y templar el ambiente, un microondas que puede incendiar el Palau y helar al rival.

Aunque no todo es bueno, los cambios provocarán que haya más lagunas defensivas que en años pretéritos, pues con los nuevos interiores el Barça sufrirá más a la hora de proteger su zona, los exteriores rivales penetrarán con más asiduidad y convicción, pues el miedo que infundían Ndong y Vázquez en las cercanías del aro ha desaparecido. Así pues, las ayudas serán menos intimidantes y por lo tanto menos efectivas, de esta forma los exteriores estarán obligados a defender con mayor atención a su par.





Esperando la eclosión

La posición más débil del conjunto azulgrana sigue siendo la de alero, un veterano y castigado Pete Mickael y Joe Ingles como relevo parecen poco para un equipo que quiere governar Europa, así pues Pascual debe acceder a premiar con minutos a Xavi Rabaseda y Alex Abrines. Jugadores jóvenes que atesoran el talento que el Barça puede necesitar en esta posición. Al joven mallorquín se le compara con Rudy Fernandez, con el que incluso conserva cierto parecido físico.
Abrines es un 2 muy rápido de brazos, con buena mano y capaz de penetrar cuando es necesario, puede machacar el aro sin problema alguno. Un jugador que ha demostrado en el Campeonato de Europa sub-20 que tiene madera de líder, pues suyo fue el triple que dio la medalla de bronce al combinado español.

A la vista está que Chichi Creus quiere rejuvenecer la plantilla, pero está claro que no es tan bueno viendo el talento que aún está por pulir, que al mismo tiempo es el más barato, del ya hecho y “explotado”. La espectacular recta final de Pete Mickael en la serie por el campeonato nacional le hizo tapar su irregular temporada. Si las lesiones merman el rendimiento de un jugador, ese efecto se acrecienta en uno de su edad. El binomio que Creus quiso crear con Chuck Eidson no carburó en ningún momento de la temporada.
El Barça quiere hacer nacer de su regazo una estrella, convertirlo en vitola, en un estandarte que no fue comprado, sino hecho. Buscan al nuevo Navarro, pero no como jugador, pues “La Bomba” es irrepetible; quieren un emblema.

El vacío dejado por Eidson debe ser llenado por Xavi Rabaseda, un jugador que tiene mucho por mejorar y que, a diferencia de otros, tiene la capacidad de hacerlo. Xavi Pascual haría bien en restarle minutos a Joe Ingles para sumarlos al contador del joven alero catalán.








Defendiendo la idea de defender

La defensa es un factor importante en la consecución de los títulos, muchos entrenadores lo saben e inculcan su libro defensivo a sus pupilos con el objetivo de reducir porcentajes y provocar errores o pérdidas en el equipo rival. Xavi Pascual ejerce a la perfección su sistema defensivo, no en vano ha sido la mejor defensa de Europa en repetidas ocasiones. Pero siempre me queda el resquemor de pensar que el Barça tiene demasiada calidad para focalizar y priorizar hasta tal extremo la defensa para, en ataque, depender de la inspiración de un, a veces, imparable Navarro. Quizá los cambios en el juego interior buscan precisamente esto, una mayor variedad ofensiva en detrimento de empeorar, levemente, la faceta defensiva.
Aunque conociendo a Pascual, a buen seguro que su intención, ambiciosa, es mejorar el ataque sin resentir la defensa.
Veremos si será capaz de conseguirlo.



Conclusión

El equipo rejuvenece pero pierde poder de intimidación, sacrifica defensa para un ataque más equilibrado, menos dependiente. Las opciones de anotar y las formas para hacerlo aumentarán. Habrá más espacios y deberán saber jugar con ellos, hacer pagar a los equipos rivales las ayudas que se verán obligados a ejercer sobre Tomic y Jawai.
Veremos la adaptación de los nuevos fichajes a la exigencia defensiva que les pedirá Pascual, y si serán capaces de hacer olvidar, también en defensa, a sus antecesores.
El Barça rejuvenece, y por consiguiente su potencial aumenta. Un equipo con capacidad de mejora cuyo nuevo techo lo van a marcar las nuevas incorporaciones.

          Lluvia de estrellas        

Todo aquel que se precie de ser un buen aficionado a la NBA, siempre y cuando su economía se lo permita, tiene que ir a ver un partido en el que juegue alguna de nuestras idolatradas estrellas. Debe ser una peregrinación obligatoria. 

El martes pasado fui al Palau Sant Jordi para ver a España contra el USA Team y os quiero transmitir las sensaciones que saqué de mi encuentro con las estrellas. Las conclusiones que obtuve de aquel show tanto a nivel deportivo como extradeportivo (condicionantes y parafernalia previa).

Quizá el error fue mio, pensé que me encontraría un show parecido al que acontece en los partidos de la NBA, pero la ambientación que los organizadores generaron no superó las expectativas con las que venía. Sé que esta sensación no fue solo mía, pero prefiero centrarme en mi experiencia, a pesar de que probablemente sea compartida por muchos de los asistentes a aquel partido. Quizá fui un iluso al pretender presenciar un espectáculo como el que se ve allí, en el cual en los tiempos muertos ocurren tantas o más cosas que durante el partido. Por desgracia, no fue así.
La presentación se asemejó en demasía a cualquier otro partido de liga ACB o Euroliga. Esta sensación de “pobreza” organizativa se acrecentó aún más en los tiempos muertos, pues no es de recibo el poco o nulo espectáculo que se sucedió en ellos. Me parece muy bien que durante los tiempos muertos hagan “juegos” publicitarios en la pantalla del recinto, pero quiero que en pista me ofrezcan una alternativa. No me parece de recibo sacar esa clase de juegos en medio de la pista, obligándote a verlos porque no hay nada mejor que ver. Ya que el precio de una entrada para ver un USA-España es muy superior a ver un Australia-España, por ejemplo, el espectáculo durante los Time Outs debe de ser diferente; superior. Tan solo los castellers del descanso, junto al homenaje a Navarro y a tres miembros del Dream Team allí presentes (Mullin, Robinson y Drexler) merecieron la pena.

Ahora vayamos a lo importante, lo que pagué por ver, es decir, los jugadores. Esa constelación de estrellas bajo el cielo de Barcelona.
Cuando los ves en vivo se desvanece esa sensación que se tiene de jugadores de ficción, casi irreales. Conviertes la imagen que tantas veces has visto en un monitor en realidad. Los ves en carne y hueso. Existen.

Centrándonos en el partido, España tuvo un inicio fulgurante, la defensa norteamericana no cerraba su zona y permitía penetraciones españolas con relativa facilidad. José Manuel Calderón se encargaba de hacer jugar a la selección, mientras que Ibaka se beneficiaba de un tipo de base que en OKC desconoce. La afición que abarrotaba el Sant Jordi gritaba enfervorizada el espectacular inicio del combinado español, los continuos (y claros) pasos que el trío arbitral se encargaba de penalizar (en especial el dúo español) no permitía a los norteamericanos meterse en el partido. En un momento del mismo, los tres árbitros parecían adoptar una posición muy partidista, muy patriótica. Eso contribuyó a un desconcierto que benefició a Estados Unidos, en especial a Carmelo Anthony que, a diferencia del partido contra Argentina, demostró la calidad que atesora y ya en el descanso llevaba 23 puntos con un 5 de 6 en triples.

En la segunda mitad se sumaron a la fiesta más jugadores y el resultado que reflejaba el marcador en el descanso (40-48) no hizo más que aumentar, ni la zona planteada por Scariolo era capaz de detener el vendaval norteamericano. Jugadores como LeBron, Durant o Westbrook aumentaron el nivel en la segunda mitad del encuentro y España se deshizo como un azucarillo. El griterío de los primeros minutos de partido se fue apagando en concordancia con el juego de España, que estuvo muy errática en el tiro, incluso desde la línea de personal. Sus exteriores no supieron nutrir de buenos balones a un Gasol defendido por LeBron, circumstancia a mejorar en un probable enfrentamiento en Londres.

A pesar de la clara victoria norteamericana (78-100) no tuve la sensación de ver un juego espectacular, un equipo imbatible. Estados Unidos no juega como equipo, aún no ha aprendido. Es un cúmulo de estrellas cuyo repertorio táctico se basa en repetir hasta la saciedad los pick&pops o pick&rolls, sin arsenal táctico más allá de la espontaneidad de sus estrellas. Un juego basado en el 1 para 1 o 2 para 2 centrándose en romper a su par para conseguir ventaja y beneficiarse de ella. Su asfixiante defensa les permite ocultar esa carencia ofensiva, pues muchos puntos llegaron y llegarán de contraataques o transiciones rápidas. En ese aspecto la actitud de los colegiados será decisiva, pues deberán penalizar a los jugadores norteamericanos cuando incurran en pasos. Hecho que, temo, sucederá con frecuencia.

Mención aparte merece Ibaka, no cabe duda de que es un bastión defensivo de primer orden mundial. Un jugador capaz de intimidar incluso al USA Team solo lo tiene España y es evidente que lo aprovecharemos. Pero no estaría de más rebajar la ansiedad con la que juega, pues en muchas ocasiones Serge se empeña en buscar el tapón a toda costa, sin percibir que el balón desciende o ya ha tocado tablero; debe aprender a leer el momento oportuno para taponar.

En la mayoría de partidos no será necesario, pero a medida que la competición vaya avanzando y los rivales sean de mayor entidad, tendremos que mandar más balones a nuestros pívots; los mejores de los JJOO. Eso facilitará la labor de los exteriores y sobre todo dañará las defensas rivales desde el interior, donde son más vulnerables. Si lo consiguen, el sueño de batir al temido equipo norteamericano puede dejar de serlo. Nadie, ni tan solo Estados Unidos, cuenta con dos 7 pies de tal calidad técnica. Es necesario que juguemos para ellos, iniciar la jugada subministrando balones a nuestros interiores.

Espero presenciar un segundo enfrentamiento entre estos colosos del baloncesto mundial, quiero ver desatar sus fuerzas en el telón de fondo más importante del mundo.





¡Qué empiecen los Juegos!

          Manifestaciones: 'Vacaciones en Paz' por un #SaharaLibre en Santa Cruz de Tenerife, 14 Julio, y Barcelona, 15 Julio        


Asociación Canaria de Amistad con el Pueblo Saharaui (ACAPS)

Estimados amigos y amigas

El programa de acogida de niños y niñas saharauis atraviesa uno de los momentos más complicados de su larga historia. La crisis económica, los recortes en las administraciones locales y un pesimismo creciente en la sociedad española hacen que resulte complicado sacar adelante una iniciativa como esta.

Pero estamos aquí para decir alto y claro que Vacaciones en Paz no morirá por estos motivos. Las personas que formamos parte del movimiento solidario con el Sáhara somos las primeras interesadas en que Vacaciones en Paz desaparezca, pero por razones bien diferentes, porque han regresado a su patria.

Sabemos que el Pueblo Saharaui no será libre dentro de un mes, quizás tampoco dentro de un año, pero sabemos que algún día recuperará su libertad. Por eso te esperamos el sábado para que nuestras voces a favor de la autodeterminación del Pueblo Saharaui sean escuchadas una vez más en las calles de Santa Cruz.
AYÚDANOS A DIFUNDIRLA


ACAPS Federació - Associació Catalana d'Amics del Poble Sahrauí

Després de la manifestació, els participants podran anar a dinar al Parc de la Ciutadella, on podran gaudir de diverses activitats de lleure per als infants. La marxa està organitzada per la Delegació de Front Polisario a Catalunya amb el suport del moviment solidari amb el Sàhara a Catalunya i de totes aquelles persones, organitzacions i entitats sensibles a la causa d’aquest poble.

Els convocants reivindicaran el dret a l’autodeterminació i la independència del poble sahrauí, que ha de permetre que aquests infants i les seves famílies puguin retornar a la seva terra i viure en pau i llibertat. Des de tots els pobles i racons de Catalunya, units més que mai en favor del poble sahrauí volem que li arribi als nostres governants la veu de la dignitat i la justícia, de l'honestedat i de la legitimitat.

ARA, MÉS QUE MAI, AVUI MILLOR QUE DEMÀ, EN NOM D'AQUESTS NENS I NENES, DEL SEU FUTUR, EXIGIM EL DRET A L'EXERCICI DE LA SEVA SOBIRANIA PER AL POBLE SAHRAUÍ.
