Un discurso sin desperdicio de Rafael Correa

El título de este correo lo obtuve de una entrevista que el Presidente de Ecuador dio a una TV Española el 25 de Abril.  Mi amiga Ecuatoriana me dijo uno de estos días, “Tu Presidente estuvo por aquí, si hubieras estado, yo hubiera ido a verlo junto contigo“. Mi amiga se estaba refiriendo al Presidente Rafael Correa y su EXITOSA visita a la USA, Boston, Connecticut & New York.  Mi amiga llego a la USA cuando tenía 2 años, ahora es una mujer adulta y abuela. Yo le he hablado mucho sobre Ecuador & Correa. He encontrado tierra fértil en ella.

Una de mis doctoras es ecuatoriana, y fui a verla para mi examen físico anual. Le hice el comentario de que el Presidente Correa había estado en New York, la respuesta de esta doctora fue: “Es un desgraciado.  Quiere convertir…

Israeli Crimes: Details and numbers of the zionist terrorism activities

The Nobel Prize of Literature Jose Saramago compares the suffering of the Palestinians under Israeli occupation as the same suffering of the jews in the Nazi boot camps.

“The repression from Israel is the worst form of Apartheid. Nobody has the faintest idea of what is going on here, even the best informed people. Everything is in pieces, the land is destroyed and nothing else may be planted. All this smells like a boot camp, like Auschwitz. The israeli have turned into NAZI JEWS” , he declared after a visit to Palestina in March, 2002.

He is correct. Let us see why:
Although the image that Israel distributes about herself is that of an oppressed nation, it is with heavy hearts that we present these crimes that stand for themselves for the brutality of the Israeli Army and the heartlessness…

So what has the attack on Gaza got to do with three dead settlers near Hebron?

Brum2Jerusalem Blog


This is a legitimate question to ask. The current crisis began with the abduction and then killing of three settlers who were taken in the West Bank. So why are over 400 people (and rising) dead in Gaza?

The answer is there is absolutely no connection. This makes Israel’s attack on Gaza a war of aggression. The number of civilian casualties, over 400 at the time of writing, including 60 from one attack on Shujaia neighbourhood of East Gaza an act of state terror.

Zionists claim it is all to do with the rockets launched from Gaza. I tackled this issue here.

The rockets stopped in 2009 and then in 2012 but Israel failed to turn this into a serious attempt to end the occupation. This is the heart of the problem. Again, I wrote about this here.

Pro Israelis have been out in force…

Too Big to Punish?

carlpopebwAs of this week, a single violation of prohibitions on watering your lawn in California can cost $500. I recently picked up a tourist brochure for Sierra County California which cautioned me that a medical emergency in the mountainous, rural county was likely to require air evacuation, that my insurance probably wouldn’t cover it and that the bill would begin at $15,000. I’ve also read that the rescue price tag for a climber who needs evacuation by air from Yosemite’s cliff’s can easily run $85,000. But that’s fair—we ought to pay for the costs we create.

So how much did the Occupational Safety and Health Administration fine Freedom Industries, the company whose sloppy handling of the toxic chemical MCHM caused 10,000 gallons to spill into the Elk River, poisoning the water supply of hundreds of thousands of Charleston, West Virginia residents? Pathetically,

Six seconds ‘can transform health’

Short six-second bursts of vigorous exercise have the potential to transform the health of elderly people, say researchers in Scotland.


A pilot study involving 12 pensioners showed going all-out in very short bursts, reduced blood pressure and improved general fitness over time.


The team at Abertay University believe it could help avert the “astronomical” costs of ill health in elderly people.
