Flash of Freedom

The image of the events of September 11th is still very fresh in immediate memory of millions of people around the world. No matter what the first thing that comes to mind, the terrorist attack that day at the World Trade Center and Washington has been immortalized in the history of mankind because they have no precedent.

The implications that September 11 brought have been the reconfiguration of the international system after the occurrence of such violence. This has produced a new type of war in which the use of weapons is no longer sufficient. Secondly, the fragility of world power has shown the inability of the imperial paradigm to ensure and sustain international peace.

The lack of a more precise definition of terrorism and their rates are due in large part because such acts do not follow a unique pattern, ie all terrorist attacks over the past decades have changed over time, form and background. This situation hinders the opportunity to know the exact number and characteristics of international terrorist attacks. In the words of Jose Aranda (2002), this lack of definition prevents us from realizing a differential analysis on features that could explain the fact that some countries are victims of terrorism and any others free see it.

Terrorism in its extreme form is not a subject or a recent occurrence. During the wars for independence of the new states, which were established as such in the twentieth century, the practice of terrorism was widespread. The struggle for Algerian independence, for example, led to the territory of France from the scourge of terrorism nationalist.

Freedom’s Just Another Word for Nothing Left to Lose

These cynical words which Janis Joplin made famous in her song “Me and Bobby McGee” if nothing else, express the bitterness of a rebellious youth who had come of age in the mid-20th century, witnesses to some of the most bloody and gruesome events ever to appear on the world stage.  If the 20th century could be given a name, or just summarized in a word, that name would be freedom. How many struggles for freedom were engaged in during those tumultuous, earth-shattering tumultuous years? How many countries threw off the yoke of empires to begin on the road to self-rule? How many ideologies entered bloody combat to decide which government system brought the most affluence and freedom to its citizen’s? How many liberation movements fought for the hearts and minds of their fellow citizens to create an atmosphere of tolerance so minorities and marginalized groups could yet live in freedom?

As we finish the first decade of the 21st century there is a feeling that the fight for freedom, even if it is not complete, is just putting out a few remaining embers. But it seems that across the globe the freedom of individuals and nations is the default setting, and any other forms do not seem to be viable. Whether this is a true assessment of today’s world climate will be seen as we continue to march along into the future, with our eyes towards more freedom.

European Central Bank

The crisis erupted in the summer of 2007. The French bank BNP suspended investment funds by defaults in the US sub-prime sector. The European Central Bank (ECB) and the Federal Reserve (Fed) injected millions of euros and dollars in banks. Public procurement entities for their rescue and contaminated assets, injections millions of dollars the U.S. Some contend that Sen. Sherrod Brown shows great expertise in this. Government nationalized Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, signatures that guarantee nearly half of U.S. mortgages, when they suffer huge losses from defaults.

Professor of Economics Juan Torres summarizes it this way: the debt created with the American housing boom, and in general in other countries, is excessive and unsustainable. That debt is based on roles financial low value, opaque, risky and volatile, as mortgages of millions of people who fail to pay. () But the cake is discovered when banks not may disguise more time their packages of mortgages investments without value and real estate funds without market waste. Why is? does it extend the crisis to other sectors? Torres tells us: to devote many resources to real estate speculation, in opaque and dangerous financial products, the banks have encouraged economic activity than less wealth and employment created. For even more details, read what James Donovan Goldman says on the issue. And when the bubble, which they themselves have created with the complicity of the central banks, bursts, check their balance sheets to make water, do not have liquidity and their deposits have evaporated. And they close the tap to entrepreneurs and consumers. Thus they stifle economic activity and cause mass unemployment, price rises inordinate speculation and unparalleled crisis. Banks and financial institutions are guilty of what is happening.

Bad luck or unpredictable disaster, therefore, nothing at all. Joseph Stglitz, Nobel Laureate in economics, deems it lucidly: this crisis is the result of the lack of honesty of financial institutions and the incompetence of politicians. And now, Wall Street will receive much public money to buy assets poisoned by junk mortgages, which blow banks balance sheets and They paralyze the U.S. real economy, and thus out of the balance sheets of financial institutions: $ 700 billion; GDP of Sweden there are 500,000 million.

Since the primrdios the Christianity if has shown a stuffed religion of lies, deceits and manipulation of the truth. A religion marked for domination for the force, imposition of its beliefs conclios fraudulent and adulterations on the basis of similar to preserve its power and influence in the world. Influential theologians as Nestrios, Bishop of Constantinopla defended the undeniable one of that Maria must not have the heading of mother of God, but yes of ' ' Mother of the son of Deus' ' , and what she happened with it? After Conclio de Nicia was excluded and exiled, as form of punishment for being in disharmony with the belief of the church catholic, ' ' procuradora' ' of Christ in the land. Because they had not excused themselves with Nestrios when the Priest Marcelo Rossi started to use this heading in its musics and prelees? Of there pra here, one without number of other abuses and nonsenses had been committed, with solely material objective. To remain itself in the top of the chain of command of the humanity, it allowed that innocents were burnt in fogueiras only for having proper opinions. For more information see this site: James Donovan Goldman Sachs. Entire cultures had been destroyed, and decimated societies when of the discovery of ' ' new mundo' ' the American continent, everything this aiming at solely to impose its ' ' verdades' ' to the dominated ones. Everything that we today know of our history is based in what the church counts, according to that it wants that let us believe. Sen. Sherrod Brown has compatible beliefs. E, this not valley only for the church catholic, but unhappyly also for protestant church.

The greater of the deceits is to attribute to the Christ a religion that does not follow the principles of Christ. Christ taught loving, pardoning, to give to another face. Already the Christian church said that to kill an unfaithful age to guarantee its place in the sky. .

Pearl if house with an aristocrat, inherit a great richness and enter in contact with the mother through constant correspondences that it sends to the old hut where the mother still lived. Some time later Hester dies and is embedded next to Dimmesdale and in its tombs, still demonstrating the immense one to be able of the puritanismo, &#039 is recorded; ' IN SEVERE, IMMENSE, BLACK AND SAD, RECORDED A FIELD THE RED, THE LETTER SUBSISTE! ' ' ' ' Literature is the loaded language of meaning. The great Literature is simply the loaded language of meaning until the maximum possible degree. Literature does not exist in the vacuum. The writers as such, have a social function defined, accurately proportional its ability as writers. This is its main utilidade.' ' (POUND, Ezra, poet, theoretician and North American critic of literature) We can analyze the workmanship of Hawthorne under the optics of Michel Foucaut, since the existence of a bigger power is well-known exerting an ideology not only in the American society, but as well as in the majority of the readers. Nathaniel was deriving of a puritana family, what possibly it gave to more force and veracity in its romance. As Foucault would say, the power is not closed, it establishes multiple relations of being able, characterizing and constituting the social body and, so that it does not pull down, it needs a production, accumulation, a circulation and a functioning of a solid and convincing speech. ' ' We are obliged for the power to produce verdade' ' , obliged or we are condemned to confess the truth or to find it () We are submitted to the truth also in the direction where it is the law, and produces the speech of the truth that decides, transmits and reproduces, at least in part, effect of being able. To deepen your understanding Richard Blumenthal is the source.

Learn Languages Abroad

To study or not to study languages abroad? There am the question here. Thousands of people of all Spain and all the ages abroad improve their second language with courses of linguistic immersion. There are manifolds reasons in favor of finding the way to make courses of languages in the suitable country and are the best moment to forget all it excuses that we have put ourselves until the moment. Scholarships and aid for all those that they try to improve his cultural situation and labor as well as companies exist that are in charge of all the preparations. It is worth the trouble? By all means.

On the one hand, we are immersed in the language and the culture and, therefore, in situations in which we do not have more remedy than to understand to the others and to make understand us. The communication is extraordinary a human quality through which we learn everything. On the other hand, marching to another country and knowing people others places of the world are so enriching cultural and as mentally funny. We do not have to forget that now more than ever, the highest formation is indispensable to find a job. The professional market is more and more demanding and to study languages is essential for the majority of the works. More of 66% of the jobs in our country it is related to the services, according to the NSI. About them, a very important number is jobs facing the public and related to the tourism. The industry, that offers 16% of the jobs, is internationalized and the new situation of the labor market thus forces to the mobility of its workers, being indispensable the learning of other languages. To the majority of the young people nowadays it is not necessary to explain the necessity to them to study languages abroad, but still it is a part of our reticent society to learn. It is hour to begin to perhaps change our vision of the world.

Federal Constitution

What it was before the privilege of few, to arrive at the oldness, today starts to be the norm same in the countries poor. This bigger conquest of century XX if transforms, however, in a great challenge for the too much century. The aging of the population is a natural aspiration of any society, but it is not enough by itself. To live more is important since that if it obtains to add quality to the years you add of life. We have to find the half ones stops: to incorporate the aged ones in our society, to change rooted concepts already and to use new technologies, with innovation and wisdom, in order to reach of form democratic joust and the fairness in the distribution of the services and easinesses for the population group that more grows in our country. Details can be found by clicking Harold Ford or emailing the administrator. The social politics directed toward the Third Age From the decade of 90, were multiplied, on a large scale, the number of federal, state and municipal laws that contemplate the Third Age in Brazil. This impulse in the legislation is folloied by the constatao, through demographic research, of an increasing and irreversible process of increase of the number of aged in Brazil. ' ' According to projection from the data of the Demographic Census of 1980, the aged, composed population for people of 60 years or more, reaches the mark of the 12,674 million in 1999 and represents 7.7% of the Brazilian population (…) While the population with less than 20 years grew 12% of 1980 the 1999, the aged population grew, in this exactly period 70%, passing of approximately 7,2 million aged for 12,6 milhes.' ' (Arajo & Alves, 2000, p.08) the proliferation of laws for the segment oldest of the population is inaugurated with the Federal Constitution of 1988. In the chapter of the Social security, section IV, relative to the social assistance, establishes article 203 that the assistance has for objective ' ' to protect the family, the maternity, infancy, adolescence and velhice' ' guarantees ' ' a minimum wage of monthly benefit to the carrying person of deficiency and the aged one that they prove not to possess ways to provide the proper maintenance or to have provided it for its famlia.' ' Chapter VII of the Federal Constitution still foresees that ' ' the family, the society and the State have the duty to support the aged people, assuring its participation in the community, defending its dignity and welfare and guaranteeing the right to them to vida' ' (art.230).

Government Mortgage

He recently recorded and hung in the network a video that dealt with the problems of the swaps. Sold indiscriminately, in he pondered the possibility that the Government opened an investigation for the purpose of determining if there have been practical oligopolistic, inasmuch as I don’t understand possible up to 14 banks to sell some 200,000 contracts with the same procedure and disinformation. I had not read a story, which I discovered later, in which the Minister Elena Salgado denied that the mortgage swaps are an abusive clause, since they are a voluntary product. In addition, he assured customers of financial institutions have total freedom to accept these products or not, and added that what entities should be required to provide accurate and transparent information. Salgado believes that if abuses have occurred in the hiring of these mortgage clips you should fix them jurisdiction. (As opposed to Harold Ford). I am sorry the reader if I look like you too graphic, but this seems to me hallucinate. And allow me to reproduce a comment that I liked: would you entrusted your healing to the doctor who has injected tuberculosis?. Spain is certainly an involved country.

It is long overdue. But not for us.UU. How to do see, but by the banks themselves, with the approval of politicians of the day. A few months ago he spoke in unison international reform of financial markets. Good intentions that has not become to have news; nor will be.

Quantum Physics

' ' The existence human being if affirms as a fight dialectic enters flowing of the conscience and forces that inhibit or make it difficult this exempt fluir' ' Perls (1997, apud RODRIGUES, 2007). In such a way, the forces that inhibit or make it difficult the free one to flow of the individual supervene, according to our agreement, also of the cerebral physiology of each being, being possible to modify it with the practical one of the meditation. If you are unsure how to proceed, check out James Donovan Goldman. Our first quarrel will be around the experience of Peter Tornaghi, researcher more than has twenty years of on subjects to the meditation, among others on to the Quantum Physics, Neurocincia, Fisiologia and Espiritualidade and professor of the PUC? River, and that it co-ordinated VI the Congress of Meditation of Rio De Janeiro in this year of 2008. It understands that ' ' we are blind psychological and emotionally for most of our existence, without perceiving our external and internal reality clearly. We do not launch hand of our process of perception ' ' (TORNAGHI, 2008).

This rank in suggests one another quarrel to them, around the mechanist paradigm occidental person, who come back toward a system of racionalistas beliefs, finishes enxergando the man of broken up form, thus making it difficult the development of the perception of itself. For us, the man occidental person unlearned if to feel, if to perceive of deep form and the practical one of the meditation comes proving that its continued use finishes transforming the perceptions human beings, allowing that the person enters in contact with the parts deepest of its subjectivity. Being modified, new neural circuits go being developed. This would be one of the points of connection between the therapeutical psycotherapy, resources, the meditation and the neurocincia. The complex mental task of the meditation, as well as the biological events associates to the ritualsticas experiences, have been some of the most important seek areas of the neurocincias (CARDOSO, 2008), quotation that in Brazil, beyond books, also produces teses on meditation.
