POR QUÉ NO DEBE CONFUNDIRSE ISLAMISMO CON TERRORISMO YIHADISTA (Mª Jesús Vigo Pastur)

RE-EVOLUCIÓN

Desde principios de año, cerca de 8.300 personas han perdido la vida en más de 820 atentados yihadistas perpetrados en todo el mundo, y menos de 1 % de las víctimas han sido europeas.

Los atentados de Cataluña, que la semana pasada produjeron 15 muertos y más de un centenar de heridos, no sólo han dejado consternación y dolor. También han derivado en ataques violentos contra la población musulmana y sus mezquitas, así como en discursos islamófobos proclamados en redes sociales y foros.

Desafortunadamente, ya es algo habitual. A cada atentado de signo yihadista que ha sufrido Europa, le han seguido multitud de reacciones xenófobas, que sólo han demostrado ser útiles para fomentar el odio y la división en las sociedades atacadas. Es este, sin duda, uno de los principales…

Heed not Steve

Two nights ago, I set my phone to wake me at 3:15am (1:15am Arizona time) so I could catch the 4am shuttle to the airport.

Yay, going home!

But, booo!  That’s so early, right?

It’s early, sure, but, fear not!

I didn’t actually wake up so early.

No.

Instead, I slept through my alarm.

yeah

I don’t quite know what happened there.  Did I turn it off in my sleep?  Did I just sleep through it?

I need a scientist to study this.

Anyhow, luckily, I half-woke before the shuttle departed.  I glanced at my room’s alarm clock and couldn’t decipher what I saw:

3:49

What?

3:49?  What does that….

OH CRAP!

I total-woke.

I jumped out of bed, turned on the lights, got dressed, slapped some pomade in my hair, packed all my toiletries, gathered and packed all my electronic devices, gathered and packed all the charging cables for…

Amazingly well preserved 3,500-year-old lunch box discovered in Swiss Alps

By Martha Henriques

The wooden box still has traces of the grains it carried in 1500 BCE.

An incredibly rare wooden container from the Bronze Age has been discovered on the Lötschberg mountain in Switzerland, still with detectable traces of the grains that the box contained.

The box was found at the summit of the Lötschenpass, a transit through a glacier, at an elevation of about 2,650 metres above sea level. It’s thought to have remained frozen since it was lost or abandoned by its owner in 1500 BCE.

Such discoveries are rare. Only one other similar artefact has been discovered, found in another alpine pass, the Schnidejoch, about 25km to the west of the Lötschenpass. Perhaps the most famous discovery from the ice-packed Alps is Ötzi the iceman, a human discovered dating from about 3300 BCE.

Analysis of the box showed traces of spelt, emmer and barley, according…

In racist rant caught on audio, woman expresses disgust that a black woman is her daughter’s teacher

Black Women Of Brazil

Revoltante - professora negra de Minas Gerais é ofendida por mãe de alunas

Note from BW of Brazil: Hmmm, so how should I interpret this in the context of the idea that “we are all equal”, as so many Brazilians like to say? Well, when we consider other incidents, I would interpret this as, “we’re all equal as long as a black isn’t teaching my daughter…or, we’re all equal, as long as a black isn’t in a position of authority, or as long as they’re not in my country club, or as long as they’re not representing Brazil outside of the country. Brazil always like to claim that legally sanctioned racial segregation never existed in the country, but with sentiments such as this, it doesn’t really matter. We can clearly see how Brazil really feels about its black population. If this is what integration looks like, why do people think it’s such a good thing? 

Revolting: Black teacher from…
