La libertad de expresión como máscara. Es ingenuo y peligroso que las personas crean que el ejercicio de la libertad de expresión, esencial en sociedades que se sueñan liberales como la nuestra, implica que los discursos no tienen consecuencias.

Al contrario. Participar sin filtros en el debate público acarrea la responsabilidad de entender que todas las formas de expresión tienen poder de hacer mucho daño, y que son propensas a recibir el justo reproche público.

How to Be Open-Minded

They often appear reasonably responsible and logical, harbour little self-hatred or compulsion, and strike us as cheerful and more or less content with their partners and their lives. This can feel hugely and horribly at odds with what we know of life from our own minds. Beyond a certain age, once we have lived a little inside ourselves, we tend to become acquainted with a range of deeply alarming and regrettable sides to our characters: we recognise the extent of our confusion, compulsion, sexual waywardness, disloyalty, meanness, insecurity and peculiarity.

Mutharika left to attend the United Nations General Assembly mid-September and just didn’t come back. His cagey communications team would not divulge the leader’s itinerary, sparking rumors that he’d died, and the hilarious hashtag #BringBackMutharika. Mutharika is the latest African president to disappear without a word to his people. Communication between leaders and their constituents often grow quieter after elections.

El Bronx de Bogotá se expandirá por toda la ciudad

Lo mismo hicieron hace unos años cuando acabaron con El Cartucho. Posan los militares y policías para las fotos en las cuales se ven las horrorosas condiciones en que vivían los adictos, los vagabundos de las calles. Edificios cavernosos, calles sombrías, basura por toneladas que provocan el escándalo y el rechazo de las mentes bien pensantes, las cuales terminan sorprendidas ante el horripilante escenario y luego se indignan y se persignan. El gobierno distrital, con el imposible doctor Enrique Peñalosa a la cabeza, se siente satisfecho con los operativos. Como si El Bronx fuera el único foco de anárquica drogadicción callejera.

Sacan a esas personas perdidas de esta realidad, que convivían con un complejo sistema de prostitución y hasta tenían un presidio, como quien barre el polvo que hay bajo la alfombra. Peñalosa es un mercader. Y tiene toda la razón. Being Single Is Hard – Medium. At 5am, after a night of drinking with strangers, and pool, and fireworks in the street, and crappy pizza I was sitting in the living room with two friends.

Being Single Is Hard – Medium

One had a serious girlfriend, and one — like me — had been single for a long time. “Being single is really hard,” I said. My friend with the girlfriend made a start as if to object, the way people with girlfriends always object, but my single friend cut him off. “Yeah,” he said. “Being single is really hard.” I don’t talk about it often, except maybe very late at night, or when I am extremely stressed out, but being single is hard in a way that people in couples tend to be highly dismissive of.

Facebook. After Seeing These +15 Maps You’ll Never Look At The World The Same. The reason why certain countries looks bigger or smaller than others is because of something called the Mercator Projection. Putting a 3D planet on a two-dimensional map was something of a challenge for early cartographers and so a Flemish geographer and cartographer named Gerardus Mercator came up with a solution.

In 1569 he designed a map that could be accurately used for navigation purposes, but the downside was that his system distorted the size of objects depending on their position relative to the equator. Because of this, landmasses like Antarctica and Greenland appeared much larger than they actually are. Show Full Text.

Cree el aldeano vanidoso que el mundo entero es su aldea, y con tal que él quede de alcalde, o le mortifique al rival que le quitó la novia, o le crezcan en la alcancía los ahorros, ya da por bueno el orden universal, sin saber de los gigantes que llevan siete leguas en las botas y le pueden poner la bota encima, ni de la pelea de los cometas en el cielo, que van por el aire dormido engullendo mundos. Lo que quede de aldea en América ha de despertar. Manuela Henao Documentary Photographer.

An ancient source (say, Indo-European) has various branches (e.g., Romance, Germanic), which themselves have branches (West Germanic, North Germanic), which feed into specific languages (Swedish, Danish, Norwegian).

Lessons on language families are often illustrated with a simple tree diagram that has all the information but lacks imagination. There’s no reason linguistics has to be so visually uninspiring. Lili Bernard: postcolonial art and activism / lili bernard / African Diaspora / afro-cuban / painting / activist art / social art / postcolonial art — Jordanna Matlon. Bernard writes: I am interested in thematically exposing the post-colonial paradigm of suffering and resilience, through a collision of cruelty against compassion and ugliness against beauty.

The generational struggle of my family and Afro-Indigenous Caribbean ancestors, coupled with my own personal experiences as a mixed-heritage, Black Cuban immigrant in the United States of America, informs my exploration of the diasporic stain of racism, born of colonialism, and of the unconquerable nature of the human spirit.

How Academia Resembles a Drug Gang. Academic systems rely on the existence of a supply of “outsiders” ready to forgo wages and employment security in exchange for the prospect of uncertain security, prestige, freedom and reasonably high salaries that tenured positions entail. Drawing on data from the US, Germany and the UK, Alexandre Afonso looks at how the academic job market is structured in many respects like a drug gang, with an expanding mass of outsiders and a shrinking core of insiders. Mom Posts Her Breast Milk’s Side-By-Side Pic And It Goes Viral For The Most Beautiful Reason. Around Valentine’s day, mom Mallory Smothers noticed that her baby seemed to be fighting a cold. The Arkansas mom pumped some breast milk in the evening, and again early the next morning, only to find that the milk looked very different. “This is just cuckoo awesome– I read an article from a medical journal not too long ago about how Mom’s milk changes to tailor baby’s needs in more ways than just caloric intake,” smothers posted to Facebook.
