Tibetan monks embarrass China



Coragem não é mandar homens para a morte porque queremos controlar o fluxo de petróleo e fazermos fortuna assim.

Coragem é enfrentar tanques apenas com a vontade de quebrar o ciclo de violência recorrendo à não violência.


Coragem é falar como estes monges o fizeram sabendo perfeitamente que irão ser torturados e talvez mortos e mesmo assim pedir ajuda aqueles que os escutam...

Faço aqui um apelo.

Não peçam aos atletas que estiveram anos a se preparar para competir nos Jogos Olímpicos para se recusarem a participar neles.

Não impeçam os atletas de neles competir.


Eles não têm a culpa de o Comitê Olímpico ter escolhido a China para organizar os Jogos.

A escolha resultou de meros critérios financeiros, não humanos.

O jornalista português Adelino Gomes apresentou uma boa maneira de os atletas poderem mostrar o seu descontentamento sem serem acusados de politizar os jogos e assim correrem o risco de perderem as suas medalhas.

Nas cerimónias oficiais, juntem as mãos em sinal de oração e inclinem a cabeça.

Este gesto é internacionalmente reconhecido como um gesto de paz, e está associado às filosofias orientais, que sempre promoveram a paz.

Já todos viram o Dalai Lama receber as pessoas assim.


Espalhem a ideia, não impeçam os atletas de competir, peçam lhes sim para não esquecer os que não podem promover a paz porque estão nesse momento a ser torturados.

Silenciem a China não com recusa de comparência mas com a promoção da compaixão entre os povos.

Sou lésbica! E então?



Valente a moça.

Embora a sua sexualidade apenas diga respeito a ela e a quem ela escolher amar, neste momento, este tipo de acções continua a ser necessário, já que nem todos os que vivem e desesperam por serem livres para amar estão rodeados de verdadeiros amigos.

Tens sorte Solange e compreendes que nem todos têm a tua sorte.

Mas não te livras do comentário se alguma vez te vir na rua.

Vai ser logo a matar, sem hipótese!

Ó Solange! Então e o tijolo?

Orderly Universe: Evidence of God?

Not Really, ABC News Columnist Says; It's Not Unusual for Order to Occur Naturally

By JOHN ALLEN PAULOS
March 2, 2008

Since writing my book "Irreligion" and some of my recent Who's Counting columns, I've received a large number of e-mails from subscribers to creation science (who have recently christened themselves intelligent design theorists). Some of the notes have been polite, some vituperative, but almost all question "how order and complexity can arise out of nothing."

Since they can imagine no way for this to happen, they conclude there must be an intelligent designer, a God. (They leave aside the prior question of how He arose.)

Robert Fisk: Offended by Shakespeare? Let's ban him

Into the bin must go TS Eliot, and I guess we’ll have to chuck out Winston Churchill

Saturday, 8 March 2008

When I first read of the nine 14-year-old students at the Jewish Yesodey Hatorah Senior Girls' School in east London who refused to sit a Shakespeare test because they believed the Bard was anti-Semitic, I could well understand their feelings. Their protest against Shylock in The Merchant of Venice – reported in this newspaper last week – seemed well grounded.

However human moneylenders may be ("If you prick us, do we not bleed?"), demanding a pound of flesh from a debtor really does add to the anti-Semitic overtones of Elizabethan literature and – by implication – stokes up the racist fires of our contemporary world. But then – in paragraph four – I came across the killer line. The nine girls were not being tested on The Merchant of Venice at all – they were being examined on The Tempest. It was Shakespeare they were objecting to. If only I and my schoolboy chums had thought of such a wizard wheeze.

Practical PostgreSQL

No âmbito do meu estágio vou ter de aprender a trabalhar com base de dados.

Estava a ver um link que encontrei no Peopleware e reparei que posso ter acesso a informação bastante útil e não é preciso ir muito longe, quer dizer, distâncias aqui não existem lá muitas.

Encontrei referência a um manual online, Practical PostgreSQL, que retirei recorrendo ao complemento SpiderZilla.

Mais manuais podem ser encontrados aqui.

E um grande obrigado ao Portugal-a-Programar e a todos os que colaboram para se formarem comunidades onde a informação é partilhada.

Firefox

No peopleware podemos encontrar uma listagem de atalhos para simplificar a vida no Firefox.

Eu que uso e abuso dele, apenas recorro a alguns deles, como preguiçoso que sou não me dou ao trabalho de investigar um pouco mais.

Esqueço me que foi o investigar que me levou a optar pelo Firefox em detrimento do Internet Explorer que é uma inutilidade completa.

Mas se o Firefox pode ser muito bom isso não quer dizer que não tem falhas.

Por exemplo, na opção portable eu irei sempre escolher o Opera, o Firefox tem um consumo de memória excessivo e depois parece que estamos a trabalhar com algo inútil como por exemplo o Internet Explorer.

O Opera também tem as suas vantagens mas não é dele que vou fala agora.

Não quero também perder o vosso tempo com um tutorial pobre quando já existem tantos e bons na net sobre como utilizar o Firefox.

Como tal, deixo vos aqui algumas pistas de como aumentar a potencialidade deste browser.

Atenção, aviso à navegação, não se ponham a instalar complementos a torto e a direito, podem tornar o Firefox muito mais pesado ou mesmo torná-lo instável.

E se querem algo pesado e instável podem simplesmente recorrer ao Internet Explorer ou qualquer outro maravilhoso produto da Microsoft e eles até agradecem.

Assim sendo, que tal dar uma vista de olhos no peopleware (todos os artigos relacionados com o Firefox e os seus complementos)?

Talvez o melhor seja começar por ler este artigo e depois ir vendo com calma os restantes artigos.

Vatican lists "new sins," including pollution

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Thou shall not pollute the Earth. Thou shall beware genetic manipulation. Modern times bring with them modern sins. So the Vatican has told the faithful that they should be aware of "new" sins such as causing environmental blight.

The guidance came at the weekend when Archbishop Gianfranco Girotti, the Vatican's number two man in the sometimes murky area of sins and penance, spoke of modern evils.

Bem, não vou perder o meu tempo a descobrir quais são os novos pecados, se fosse católico, não tinha qualquer problema, depois de os cometer ia ao padre e estava perdoado mas como sou ateu, parafraseando o Ferro Rodrigues, estou-me a c@g@r para os pecados, novos ou velhos.

50 people looking for solar image of Mary lose sight.

THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: At least 50 people in Kottayam district have reportedly lost their vision after gazing at the sun looking for an image of Virgin Mary.

Though alarmed health authorities have installed a signboard to counter the rumour that a solar image of Virgin Mary appeared to the believers, curious onlookers, including foreign travellers, have been thronging the venue of the ‘miracle’.

St Joseph’s ENT and Eye Hospital in Kanjirappally alone has recorded 48 cases of vision loss due to photochemical burns on the retina. “All our patients have similar history and symptoms. The damage is to the macula, the most sensitive part of retina. They have developed photochemical, not thermal, burns after continuously gazing at the sun,” Dr Annamma James Isaac, the hospital’s ophthalmologist, said.

Immortel (Ad Vitam)

O Público está a lançar uma colecção de vários autores de BD.

Consegui finalmente ler algo do Enki Bilal, comprar BD dele está fora de questão, os preços mesmo na Fnac são excessivos para mim.

Tenho aqui na Biblioteca livros dele, mas estão em francês...

Do livro em questão apenas li O Sono do Monstro
(Tetralogia Hatzfeld) e gostei muito (bem, sou suspeito, a história remete nos para uma conspiração religiosa que tem por missão destruir todo o conhecimento que ponha em causa "A Verdade", esse conceito que os "crentes" tão desesperadamente exibem como sendo prova da sua ligação pessoal com seu deus).

Notório é também a ligação do autor ao conflito Jugoslavo, que infelizmente permanece ainda hoje latente e pronto a explodir.

É o que dá existirem religiões, não faltam razões para odiar os vizinhos que ousam seguir outras versões do mesmo absurdo.

Tenho de ver se arranjo tempo para com calma ler A Feira dos Imortais, que inicia a Trilogia Nikopol e serve de base ao filme Immortel (Ad Vitam), realizado pelo próprio Enki Bilal.

O L. Laranjo perguntou me pelo filme.

Pois, mais uma vez a resposta é, tirei o filme mas ainda não o consegui ver.

A ver se componho o hardware e depois logo se vê...

Entretanto deixo aqui o trailer do Immortel (Ad Vitam).

George Carlin - Religion is bullshit

FABULOSO!!!!!!

Não resisto a colocar aqui a exacta transcrição do texto do vídeo que aqui vos deixo.

Nada como por as coisas em perspectiva, tudo fica mais simples.

Obrigado Sr. George Carlin!

Para quem preferir, o monólogo em mp3 (3,2 MB) pode ser encontrado aqui.


GEORGE CARLIN ON RELIGION

In the Bullshit Department, a businessman can't hold a candle to a clergyman. 'Cause I gotta tell you the truth, folks. When it comes to bullshit, big-time, major league bullshit, you have to stand in awe of the all-time champion of false promises and exaggerated claims, religion. No contest. No contest. Religion. Religion easily has the greatest bullshit story ever told. Think about it. Religion has actually convinced people that there's an invisible man living in the sky who watches everything you do, every minute of every day. And the invisible man has a special list of ten things he does not want you to do. And if you do any of these ten things, he has a special place, full of fire and smoke and burning and torture and anguish, where he will send you to live and suffer and burn and choke and scream and cry forever and ever 'til the end of time!

But He loves you. He loves you, and He needs money! He always needs money! He's all-powerful, all-perfect, all-knowing, and all-wise, somehow just can't handle money! Religion takes in billions of dollars, they pay no taxes, and they always need a little more. Now, you talk about a good bullshit story. Holy Shit!

But I want you to know something, this is sincere, I want you to know, when it comes to believing in God, I really tried. I really, really tried. I tried to believe that there is a God, who created each of us in His own image and likeness, loves us very much, and keeps a close eye on things. I really tried to believe that, but I gotta tell you, the longer you live, the more you look around, the more you realize, something is fucked up.

Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed. Results like these do not belong on the résumé of a Supreme Being. This is the kind of shit you'd expect from an office temp with a bad attitude. And just between you and me, in any decently-run universe, this guy would've been out on his all-powerful ass a long time ago. And by the way, I say "this guy", because I firmly believe, looking at these results, that if there is a God, it has to be a man.

No woman could or would ever fuck things up like this. So, if there is a God, I think most reasonable people might agree that he's at least incompetent, and maybe, just maybe, doesn't give a shit. Doesn't give a shit, which I admire in a person, and which would explain a lot of these bad results.

So rather than be just another mindless religious robot, mindlessly and aimlessly and blindly believing that all of this is in the hands of some spooky incompetent father figure who doesn't give a shit, I decided to look around for something else to worship. Something I could really count on.

And immediately, I thought of the sun. Happened like that. Overnight I became a sun-worshipper. Well, not overnight, you can't see the sun at night. But first thing the next morning, I became a sun-worshipper. Several reasons. First of all, I can see the sun, okay? Unlike some other gods I could mention, I can actually see the sun. I'm big on that. If I can see something, I don't know, it kind of helps the credibility along, you know? So everyday I can see the sun, as it gives me everything I need; heat, light, food, flowers in the park, reflections on the lake, an occasional skin cancer, but hey. At least there are no crucifixions, and we're not setting people on fire simply because they don't agree with us.

Sun worship is fairly simple. There's no mystery, no miracles, no pageantry, no one asks for money, there are no songs to learn, and we don't have a special building where we all gather once a week to compare clothing. And the best thing about the sun, it never tells me I'm unworthy. Doesn't tell me I'm a bad person who needs to be saved. Hasn't said an unkind word. Treats me fine. So, I worship the sun. But, I don't pray to the sun. Know why? I wouldn't presume on our friendship. It's not polite.

I've often thought people treat God rather rudely, don't you? Asking trillions and trillions of prayers every day. Asking and pleading and begging for favors. Do this, gimme that, I need a new car, I want a better job. And most of this praying takes place on Sunday His day off. It's not nice. And it's no way to treat a friend. But people do pray, and they pray for a lot of different things, you know, your sister needs an operation on her crotch, your brother was arrested for defecating in a mall. But most of all, you'd really like to fuck that hot little redhead down at the convenience store. You know, the one with the eyepatch and the clubfoot? Can you pray for that? I think you'd have to. And I say, fine. Pray for anything you want. Pray for anything, but what about the Divine Plan?

Remember that? The Divine Plan. Long time ago, God made a Divine Plan. Gave it a lot of thought, decided it was a good plan, put it into practice. And for billions and billions of years, the Divine Plan has been doing just fine. Now, you come along, and pray for something. Well suppose the thing you want isn't in God's Divine Plan? What do you want Him to do? Change His plan? Just for you? Doesn't it seem a little arrogant? It's a Divine Plan. What's the use of being God if every run-down shmuck with a two-dollar prayerbook can come along and fuck up Your Plan?

And here's something else, another problem you might have: Suppose your prayers aren't answered. What do you say? "Well, it's God's will." "Thy Will Be Done." Fine, but if it's God's will, and He's going to do what He wants to anyway, why the fuck bother praying in the first place? Seems like a big waste of time to me! Couldn't you just skip the praying part and go right to His Will? It's all very confusing.

So to get around a lot of this, I decided to worship the sun. But, as I said, I don't pray to the sun. You know who I pray to? Joe Pesci. Two reasons: First of all, I think he's a good actor, okay? To me, that counts. Second, he looks like a guy who can get things done. Joe Pesci doesn't fuck around. In fact, Joe Pesci came through on a couple of things that God was having trouble with.

For years I asked God to do something about my noisy neighbor with the barking dog, Joe Pesci straightened that cocksucker out with one visit. It's amazing what you can accomplish with a simple baseball bat.

So I've been praying to Joe for about a year now. And I noticed something. I noticed that all the prayers I used to offer to God, and all the prayers I now offer to Joe Pesci, are being answered at about the same 50% rate. Half the time I get what I want, half the time I don't. Same as God, 50-50. Same as the four-leaf clover and the horseshoe, the wishing well and the rabbit's foot, same as the Mojo Man, same as the Voodoo Lady who tells you your fortune by squeezing the goat's testicles, it's all the same: 50-50. So just pick your superstition, sit back, make a wish, and enjoy yourself.

And for those of you who look to The Bible for moral lessons and literary qualities, I might suggest a couple of other stories for you. You might want to look at the Three Little Pigs, that's a good one. Has a nice happy ending, I'm sure you'll like that. Then there's Little Red Riding Hood, although it does have that X-rated part where the Big Bad Wolf actually eats the grandmother. Which I didn't care for, by the way.

And finally, I've always drawn a great deal of moral comfort from Humpty Dumpty. The part I like the best? "All the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty Dumpty back together again." That's because there is no Humpty Dumpty, and there is no God. None, not one, no God, never was. In fact, I'm gonna put it this way. If there is a God, may he strike this audience dead! See? Nothing happened. Nothing happened? Everybody's okay? All right, tell you what, I'll raise the stakes a little bit. If there is a God, may he strike me dead. See? Nothing happened, oh, wait, I've got a little cramp in my leg. And my balls hurt. Plus, I'm blind. I'm blind, oh, now I'm okay again, must have been Joe Pesci, huh? God Bless Joe Pesci. Thank you all very much. Joe Bless You!

"The Giant Tortoise's Tale" by Richard Dawkins

I am writing this on a boat (called the Beagle, as it happens) in the Galápagos archipelago, whose most famous inhabitants are the eponymous (in Spanish) giant tortoises, and whose most famous visitor is that giant of the mind, Charles Darwin. In his account of the voyage of the original Beagle, written long before the central idea of The Origin of Species condensed out of his brain, Darwin wrote of the Galápagos Islands:

"Most of the organic productions are aboriginal creations, found nowhere else; there is even a difference between the inhabitants of the different islands; yet all show a marked relationship with those of [South] America, though separated from that continent by an open space of ocean, between 500 and 600 miles in width. The archipelago is a little world within itself ... Considering the small size of the islands, we feel the more astonished at the number of their aboriginal beings, and at their confined range ... we seem to be brought somewhat near to that great fact - that mystery of mysteries - the first appearance of new beings on this earth."
