I’ll wait around for days
this porch on which I pace
I need you mine I need me yours
You stole my breath away
You swore to me you’d stay
I’ve found something that I adore
Oh how
How we supposed to go on
Not knowing if you
bleed the way I do
I do (well I did)
are your eyes traveling elsewhere
You need to know I got the bones rolling hard against the floor
And if you left i’d break until the little pieces felt no more
Whisper the things we’d scream
now kid let’s not get mean
I need you mine I need me yours
Four walls and fancy friends
Don’t need me none of them
Because I’ve got you know and that’s enough (Well I’m glad)(Well so am I)
Let’s take good from our past
Patch holes with things that last
Let’s tear it up here you and I
Oh how
How we supposed to go on
Not knowing if you
bleed the way I do
I do (well I did)
are your eyes traveling elsewhere
You need to know I got the bones rolling hard against the floor
And if you left I’d break until the little pieces felt no more
Well these fights sure do take a lot out of me
but the secret I can tell you is I still do believe
I can’t promise that I’ll always be careful with things
But just know that I’ll expect it if you ever do leave
Sweet Marie
I love your name
Oh babe
can you turn your heart this way
Oh how
How we supposed to go on
Not knowing if you
bleed the way I do
I do (well I did)
are your bags traveling elsewhere
You need to know I got the bones rolling hard against the floor
And if you left I’d break until the little pieces felt no more

Some of you young folks been saying to me
“Hey Pops, what you mean ‘What a wonderful world?’
How about all them wars all over the place?
You call them wonderful?
And how about hunger and pollution?
That ain’t so wonderful either. Well how about listening to old Pops for a minute.
Seems to me, it aint the world that’s so bad
but what we’re doin’ to it.
And all I’m saying is see what a wonderful world
It would be if only we’d give it a chance.
Love baby, love. That’s the secret, yeah.
If lots more of us loved each other
we’d solve lots more problems.
And then this world would be gasser.
That’s wha’ ol’ Pops keeps saying.”I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom, for me and you
And I think to myself
What a wonderful worldI see skies of blue, and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, dark sacred night
And I think to myself
What a wonderful worldThe colors of the rainbow, so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces, of people going by
I see friends shaking hands, sayin’, “How do you do?”
They’re really sayin’, “I love you”I hear babies cryin’, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more, than I’ll ever know
And I think to myself
What a wonderful worldYes, I think to myself
What a wonderful world
Oh yeah!

Ella durmió
Al calor de las masas
Y yo desperté
Queriendo soñarla
Algún tiempo atrás
Pensé en escribirle
Que nunca sorteé
Las trampas del amor.

De aquel amor
De música ligera
Nada nos libra
Nada más queda.

No le enviaré
Cenizas de rosas
Ni pienso evitar
Un roce secreto.

Hombre maneja por horas en sequía para darle agua a todos los animales salvajes que lo necesitan

Autor: Elena Cortés
Vía Upsocl | Febrero 21, 2017

 

“Si no los ayudo se van a morir”.

Se llama Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua, y uno de sus objetivos de vida es ayudar a los animales. Este hombre se enrumba en una aventura de horas y en sequía solamente para llevarle agua a los animales salvajes del Tsavo West Nacional Park en Kenia. Lleva consigo más de 3 mil galones de agua por día porque el lugar donde habitan todas estas jirafas, zebras, elefantes, etc, es totalmente seco. Para él es una pasión.

Patrick Kilonozo Mwalua es un granjero en su pueblo y ha visto durante su vida el efecto del calentamiento global, sobre todo el impacto que tiene en la vida animal de Kenia.

“Estábamos acostumbrados a recibir el agua por las lluvias, pero ya no está pasando eso. Así que comencé a darles agua a los animales por mi propia cuenta”.

El hombre confiesa que lo hace porque no quiere que estos indefensos animales mueran.

Todos los días, Patrick maneja por horas en sequía para llenar los tanques de agua y llevarlos a los animales.

Cada día llega con un camión de 3 mil galones de agua fresca, y los animales rápidamente se unen a él.

“No hay agua y es por eso que desgraciadamente los animales dependen de nosotros”

arttextum-replicacion-animales2.jpg

Contó que una vez encontró a 500 búfalos esperando la manguera que les provee agua. Apenas llegó, los animalitos se emocionaron.

Esta pasión ha inspirado a un par de mujeres americanas que crearon páginas GoFundMe para apoyarlo.

Patrick promete seguir haciendo esto mientras que la vida se lo siga permitiendo.

Soy yo
Bomba Estéreo
Me caí, me paré, caminé, me subí
Me fui contra la corriente y también me perdí
Fracasé, me encontré, lo viví y aprendí
Cuando te pegas fuerte más profundo es el beat
Sigo bailando y escribiendo mis letras
Sigo cantando con las puertas abiertas
Atravesando todas estas tierras
Y no hay que viajar tanto pa’ encontrar la respuesta
Y no te preocupes si no te aprueban
Cuando te critiquen, tú solo di
Soy yo

Soy yo (soy, soy, soy, soy, soy, soy, soy)
Soy yo (yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo, yo)
Sigo caminando y sigo riendo
Hago lo que quiero y muero en el intento
A nadie le importa lo que estoy haciendo
Lo único que importa es lo que está por dentro
A mí me gusta estar en la arena
Bañarme en el mar sin razón, sin problema
Estar sentada sin hacer nada
Mirando de lejos y estar relajada

Michael Franti & Spearhead – Good to Be Alive Today

It’s a long road, oh
Everyday I wake up and turn my phone on
I read the news of the day, just as it’s coming down
I do my best not to let it get me down
I try to keep my head up, but is Babylon
This world’s in crisis, we try to fight it, this changing climate
With scientists and politicians divided by it
So many ways we could solve it but they would never sign it
This mountains tumbling down, but still we try to climb it
It’s in the Torah, Quran and in the Bible
Love is the message for some how we turn to rivals
It’s come to people always picking up their rifles
Another school getting shot up homicidal

Some people tryna look fly, some people tryna get high
Some people losing their mind, some people tryna get by
And when you look in my eyes, you see the sign of the times
We all looking for the same thing

But what if this song’s number one
Would it mean that love had won?
Would it mean that the world was saved?
And no guns are being drawn today?
What if everybody had a job?
And nobody had to break a law?
What if everyone could say
That it’s good to be alive today (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Is it good to be alive today (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Is it good to be alive today (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Is it good to be alive today (oh, oh, oh, oh)
No matter what nobody say

People used to feel safer when they would hear a siren
Like help is on its way but now they only think of violence
Another youth in the streets and police is in a conflict
And now they hear the guns click, yo
Ebola crisis and ISIS is taking heads off
A drone is bombing a village and now the kids all
Signing up to be soldiers, but they all willing now
To do the killing now, now are you willing now?
Some politicians out there making up some problems
And tryna tell the people that they can solve them
With TV shows and soundbites and quotes
But everybody knows that it’s all about the cash flow
They telling you and me, they’re making progress
But tell it to the millions of jobless
It’s like a players club with billions of dollars
To get the votes you got to make it rain in congress

Some people tryna look fly, some people tryna get high
Some people losing their mind, some people tryna get by
And when you look in my eyes, you see the sign of the times
We all looking for the same thing

But what if this song’s number one
Would it mean that love had won?
Would it mean that the world was saved?
And no guns are being drawn today?
What if everybody had a job?
And nobody had to break a law?

Is it good to be alive today (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Is it good to be alive today (oh, oh, oh, oh)
Is it good to be alive today (oh, oh, oh, oh)
And we all say

One day, one day
One day, one day
One day, we all will say
That it’s good to be alive today
One day, one day
One day, one day
One day, we all will say
That it’s good to be alive today

John Wheeler’s Participatory Universe

Autor: Marina Jones
Vía futurism | February 13, 2014

Besides his extraordinary contributions to the field of theoretical physics, Wheeler inspired many aspiring young scientists, including some of the greats of the 20th century. Among his doctoral students were Richard Feynman, a Nobel Prize laureate, with whom he coauthored the “Wheeler-Feynman absorber theory”; Hugh Everett, who proposed the many worlds interpretation; Kip Thorne, who predicted the existence of red supergiant stars with neutron-star cores; Jacob Bekenstein, who formulated black hole thermodynamics; Charles Misner, who discovered a mathematical spacetime called Misner space; Arthur Wightman, the originator of Wightman axioms; and Benjamin Schumacher, who invented the term “qubit” and is known for the “Schumacher compression”. The list could go on.

Wheeler had a reputation pushing his students into a place where logical thought would not necessarily take them. Former student Richard Feynman, to Kip Thorne, declared, “Some people think that Wheeler’s gotten crazy in his later years, but he’s always been crazy![Reference: Princeton] Wheeler was willing to make a fool of himself, to go anywhere, talk to anybody, and ask any question that would get him closer to understanding “how things are put together.” 

LEGACY:

Wheeler believed that the real reason universities have students is to educate the professors. But to be educated by the students, a professor had to ask good questions. “You try out your questions on the students”, he wrote, “If there are questions that the students get interested in, then they start to tell you new things and keep you asking more new questions. Pretty soon you have learned a great deal.” [Reference: Cosmic Search Vol. 1 No. 4]

Wheeler had a fantastic sense of humor. Often he engaged in Koan-like expressions that puzzled and amused his listeners. He saw beauty in strangeness and actively sought it out. He declared, “If you haven’t found something strange during the day, it hasn’t been much of a day.”

Wheeler divided his own life into three parts. The first part he called “Everything is Particles.” The second part was “Everything is Fields.” And the third part, which Wheeler considered the bedrock of his physical theory, he called “Everything is Information.”

EVERYTHING IS PARTICLES:

John Archilald Wheeler was born on July 9, 1911, in Jacksonville, Florida, into a family of librarians. At 16, he won a scholarship to Johns Hopkins University. He graduated five years later with a Ph.D in physics. A year later he got engaged to Janette Hegner. They stayed married for 72 years.

Source UnknownIn 1933 in an application for the National Research Council Fellowship to go to Copenhagen and work with Neils Bohr, Wheeler wrote: “I want to go to work with Neils Bohr because he sees further than any man alive.” Bohr and Wheeler published their first paper in the late 1930s, explaining nuclear fission in terms of quantum physics. They argued that the atomic nucleus, containing protons and neutrons, is like a drop of liquid, which starts vibrating and elongating into a peanut shape when a neutron emitted from another disintegrating nucleus collides with it. As a result, the peanut shaped atomic nucleus snaps into two.

In 1938 Wheeler started teaching at Princeton University. In 1941 he interrupted his academic work to join the Manhattan Project team (which included the likes of Feynman, Bohr and Albert Einstein – with Marie Curie helping lay out the blueprints) in building an atomic bomb. Wheeler considered it his duty to help with the war effort, but the atomic bomb wasn’t ready in time to end the war and save his beloved brother, who died in Italy in 1944.

After the war ended, Wheeler returned to Princeton and taught Einstein’s general theory of relativity, which at a time was not considered a “respectable” field of physics. Wheeler’s classes were exciting – one of his tricks was to write on chalkboards with both hands. He frequently took his students to Albert Einstein’s house in Princeton for discussions over a cup of tea.

EVERYTHING IS FIELDS:

Wheeler co-wrote the most influential textbook on general relativity with Charles W. Misner and Kip Thorne. It was called Gravitation. While working on mathematical extensions to the theory, Wheeler described hypothetical “tunnels” in space-time which he called “wormholes”. He was not the first scientist to think of the possibility of wormholes, or even black holes, but he established the idea. In this regard, it’s worth noting that Democritus, an ancient Greek philosopher, suggested that matter was composed of atoms, which was “mainstreamed” by John Dalton’s discovery of atoms 2000 years later. In 1784, John Mitchell, a Yorkshire clergyman, suggested that light was subject to the force of gravity long before Einstein proved it.

After the publication of the theory of General Relativity in 1916, in which Albert Einstein predicted the existence of black holes, in 1967 John Wheeler named them. Nigel Calder calls them “awesome engines of quasars and active galaxies.” We now have multiple variations of the original concept: charged black holes, rotating black holes, stationary black holes, supermassive black holes, stellar black holes, miniature black holes.

EVERYTHING IS INFORMATION:

Let’s get to Wheeler’s three-part life- story, the last part he called “Everything is Information”.

In the final decades of his life, the question that intrigued Wheeler most was: “Are life and mind irrelevant to the structure of the universe, or are they central to it?” He suggested that the nature of reality was revealed by the bizarre laws of quantum mechanics. According to the quantum theory, before the observation is made, a subatomic particle exists in several states, called a superposition (or, as Wheeler called it, a ‘smoky dragon’). Once the particle is observed, it instantaneously collapses into a single position.

Wheeler suggested that reality is created by observers and that: “no phenomenon is a real phenomenon until it is an observed phenomenon.” He coined the termParticipatory Anthropic Principle (PAP) from the Greek “anthropos”, or human. He went further to suggest that “we are participants in bringing into being not only the near and here, but the far away and long ago.” [Reference: Radio Interview With Martin Redfern]

This claim was considered rather outlandish until his thought experiment, known as the “delayed-choice experiment,” was tested in a laboratory in 1984. This experiment was a variation on the famous “double-slit experiment” in which the dual nature of light was exposed (depending on how the experiment was measured and observed, the light behaved like a particle (a photon) or like a wave).

Unlike the original “double-slit experiment”, in Wheeler’s version, the method of detection was changed AFTER a photon had passed the double slit. The experiment showed that the path of the photon was not fixed until the physicists made their measurements. The results of this experiment, as well as another conducted in 2007, proved what Wheeler had always suspected – observers’ consciousness is required to bring the universe into existence. This means that a pre-life Earth would have existed in an undetermined state, and a pre-life universe could only exist retroactively.

A UNIVERSE ‘FINE-TUNED’ FOR LIFE:

These conclusions lead many scientists to speculate that the universe is fine-tuned for life. This is how Wheeler’s Princeton colleague, Robert Dicke, explained the existence of our universe:

“If you want an observer around, and if you want life, you need heavy elements. To make heavy elements out of hydrogen, you need thermonuclear combustion. To have thermonuclear combustion, you need a time of cooking in a star of several billion years. In order to stretch out several billion years in its time dimension, the universe, according to general relativity, must be several years across in its space dimensions. So why is the universe as big as it is? Because we are here!”

[Reference: Cosmic Search Vol. 1 No. 4]

Stephen Hawking has also noted: “The laws of science, as we know them at present, seem to have been very finely adjusted to make possible the development of life.” Fred Hoyle, in his book Intelligent Universe, compares “the chance of obtaining even a single functioning protein by a chance combination of amino acids to a star system full of blind men solving Rubik’s Cube simultaneously.”

Physicist Andrei Linde of Stanford University adds: “The universe and the observer exist as a pair. I cannot imagine a consistent theory of the universe that ignores consciousness.” [Reference: “Biocentrism: How Life and Consciousness are the Keys to Understanding the Universe“]

Wheeler, always an optimist, believed that one day we would have a clear understanding of the origin of the universe. He had “a sense of faith that it can be done.” “Faith”, he wrote, “is the number one element. It isn’t something that spreads itself uniformly. Faith is concentrated in few people at particular times and places. If you can involve young people in an atmosphere of hope and faith, then I think they’ll figure out how to get the answer.”

CONCLUSION:

Wheeler died of pneumonia on April 13, 2008, at age 96. His whole life he searched for answers to philosophical questions about the origin of matter, the nature of information and the universe. “We are no longer satisfied with insights into particles, or fields of force, or geometry, or even space and time,” he wrote in 1981, “Today we demand of physics some understanding of existence itself.”  [Reference: “The Voice of Genius: Conversations with Nobel Scientists and Other Luminaries”]

Let’s hope that young scientists will continue to be encouraged by these words and will push the boundaries of human imagination beyond its limits, and maybe even find the elusive final theory – a Theory of Everything.

John Archibald Wheeler (1911-2008) was a scientist-philosopher who introduced the concept of wormholes and coined the term “black hole”. He pioneered the theory of nuclear fission with Niels Bohr and introduced the S-matrix (the scattering matrix used in quantum mechanics). Wheeler devised a concept of quantum foam; a theory of “virtual particles” popping in and out of existence in space (similarly, he conceptualized foam as the foundation of the fabric of the universe).

El índice de sostenibilidad ambiental “Hecho en México”

Autor: Conacyt, Israel Pérez Valencia
Vía Conacytprensa | Agosto 22, 2017

Ante las diferentes problemáticas que enfrentan las ciudades y metrópolis por el crecimiento urbano, investigadores del Centro Interdisciplinario de Estudios Metropolitanos (Centromet) alistan un índice de sostenibilidad ambiental que busca abordar estos problemas en el marco de un contexto mexicano.

Los investigadores del Centromet a cargo de esta iniciativa son Citlalli Aideé Becerril Tinoco, Karol Yáñez Soria, Héctor Antonio Solano Lamphar y Fabricio Espinosa Ortiz, y abordarán temáticas como cambio climático, biodiversidad, contaminantes atmosféricos, residuos sólidos y peligrosos, así como legislación ambiental.

Al respecto, el profesor investigador Héctor Antonio Solano Lamphar informó que este proyecto de estudio del Centromet pretende abordar las temáticas más importantes de la sostenibilidad ambiental, en un primera etapa, a nivel teórico y presentar los resultados de este índice en un artículo y después en un libro.

“Buscamos que este índice de sostenibilidad ambiental sea distinto al que maneja la Organización de las Naciones Unidas (ONU) y otros organismos gubernamentales, principalmente porque estamos abordando factores importantes, recopilación de datos y metodologías diseñadas en el contexto nacional, es decir, que no necesitan ser adecuadas a las realidades urbanas y heterogéneas de nuestro país”, aseguró.

Solano Lamphar destacó que en este primer acercamiento están colaborando cuatro investigadores especialistas del Centromet, con lo que se pretende establecer una discusión sobre las condiciones del país respecto a la sostenibilidad, que es un término que ha estado de moda pero que no suele usarse adecuadamente.

1 centyromet2208“En este primer acercamiento buscamos una discusión sobre el concepto, así como una incorporación de variables que nosotros consideramos las más coherentes para incorporarlas en un índice de sostenibilidad ambiental, como cambio climático, biodiversidad, contaminantes atmosféricos, residuos sólidos y peligrosos, así como legislación ambiental”, indicó.

Ciudades compactas y difusas

El investigador del Centromet puntualizó que la siguiente etapa de este índice de sostenibilidad ambiental es llevarlo a casos específicos, empezando por Querétaro y el Bajío, donde no solo se hagan los estudios sino que además se propongan soluciones e información accesible que sea de utilidad para tomadores de decisiones,  servidores públicos y ciudadanos en general.

“En lo que se refiere a la contaminación, que es mi área, se busca hacer una distinción entre las ciudades compactas y difusas, además del cómo contamina cada una de ellas. Por ejemplo, en Europa se tienen ciudades más compactas donde las personas viven en edificios, es decir, construyen hacia arriba, y donde se observa que son más controlables en lo que se refiere a vías de comunicación, son ciudades grandes pero pequeñas en extensión; sin embargo, dependiendo de los materiales con que se construyeron, la orografía y montañas que las rodean, se pueden concentrar más los aerosoles artificiales y naturales”, advirtió.

En el caso de las ciudades difusas, la mancha territorial se dispersa hacia los alrededores, hay ciudades dentro de las ciudades y, además de la contaminación, tienen problemáticas en lo que se refiere al acceso a los servicios o la calidad de las viviendas.

El agua en México

Por su parte, la investigadora del Centromet Citlalli Aideé Becerril Tinoco estudia el manejo y servicio de las aguas potables y tratadas en los niveles comunitario, ciudades y metrópolis.

“Tenemos casi tres años trabajando en el proyecto. El tema del agua es muy sensible a nivel nacional porque hay ciudades que están teniendo un crecimiento de manera exponencial en todos los sentidos. Por ejemplo, Querétaro se está expandiendo de manera muy acelerada, se han otorgado demasiadas concesiones a constructoras del mercado inmobiliario. Con ello no solo se expande la mancha urbana sino que la dotación de servicios es un reto, tomando en cuenta que se tiene que garantizar el agua potable al total de estas poblaciones”, sostuvo.

Becerril Tinoco detalló que ya cuenta con un diagnóstico a nivel nacional, que será el punto de partida para las líneas de investigación del índice de sostenibilidad ambiental.

1 centeo2208“Las líneas se enfocan en estudiar la disponibilidad de agua en lo general, el agua potable, la escasez hídrica y su relación con el crecimiento poblacional, estrés hídrico y vulnerabilidad de las ciudades por la falta de agua, ya sea por procesos naturales, como sequías, fallas en las redes, o por decisiones de autoridades tanto en zonas urbanas como en metrópolis. La falta de agua ya es un problema latente en todo el país, principalmente por el crecimiento desordenado en las ciudades”, subrayó.

Sostenibilidad urbana en México

En ese sentido, la investigadora del Centromet Karol Yáñez Soria desarrolla líneas de investigación dirigidas a hacer un análisis crítico y propuestas para la medición de la sostenibilidad urbana en México.

“Trabajé un proyecto en la Organización de las Naciones Unidas con un índice que mide la prosperidad urbana y la sostenibilidad ambiental, para identificar en el territorio las temáticas y poder aportar estrategias en tópicos como el agua, la generación y reciclaje de basura, sostenibilidad ambiental y gobernanza, ante los crecimientos no planeados de las ciudades que ha generado problemáticas como la urbanización en ecosistemas donde se lleva a cabo la captura de agua de los acuíferos”, advirtió.

La calidad de la vivienda

La siguiente línea de estudio propuesta para el índice de sostenibilidad ambiental del Centromet la desarrolla el investigador Fabricio Espinosa Ortiz, quien analiza las problemáticas de la vivienda en México, así como su relación con la calidad de vida de las personas en las ciudades y metrópolis.

“Existe una serie de variables en un estudio de este tipo, como son la valorización de la vivienda por parte de las personas, la adaptación de los espacios públicos, las características de la movilidad urbana en temas muy sensibles como lo es el transporte público y las diferentes estrategias que deben de seguirse para mejorarlos”, enumeró.

Espinosa Ortiz informó que el objetivo es entender la vivienda desde una perspectiva más allá de una simple unidad habitacional, observar cómo se relaciona con las aspiraciones y deseos de sus habitantes, así como integrarla como parte de un gran proyecto de las políticas urbanas o sociales con relación directa al desarrollo urbano y sostenibilidad.

“Hay que ver la vivienda desde el punto de vista multiescalar, porque está relacionada con factores como la calidad de los servicios urbanos, el  agua, el transporte público o incluso el acceso a lugares como parques, plazas públicas, centros comerciales, lugares de trabajo o de esparcimiento”, finalizó.

En 2015, el Centromet publicó el libro Estudios metropolitanos: actualidad y retos (ISBN 978-607-9475-10-9) de los investigadores Isela Orihuela Jurado, Citlalli Becerril Tinoco, Luisa Rodríguez Cortés, Héctor Solano Lamphar y Claudia Tello de la Torre, que es parte de la Colección Contemporánea de la Editorial Mora, disponible en su página de Internet, que fue el primer acercamiento de los investigadores respecto a las problemáticas metropolitanas en México.

In Victory for Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, Court Finds that Approval of Dakota Access Pipeline Violated the Law

Author: Earth Justice
Via Earth Justice | June 14, 2017

Victory: Ruling: Trump administration shortcut environmental review; Court seeks additional briefing on whether to shut down pipeline!

Washington, D.C. — The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe won a significant victory today in its fight to protect the Tribe’s drinking water and ancestral lands from the Dakota Access pipeline.

A federal judge ruled that the federal permits authorizing the pipeline to cross the Missouri River just upstream of the Standing Rock reservation, which were hastily issued by the Trump administration just days after the inauguration, violated the law in certain critical respects.

In a 91-page decision, Judge James Boasberg wrote, “the Court agrees that [the Corps] did not adequately consider the impacts of an oil spill on fishing rights, hunting rights, or environmental justice, or the degree to which the pipeline’s effects are likely to be highly controversial.” The Court did not determine whether pipeline operations should be shut off and has requested additional briefing on the subject and a status conference next week.

“This is a major victory for the Tribe and we commend the courts for upholding the law and doing the right thing,” said Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault II in a recent statement. “The previous administration painstakingly considered the impacts of this pipeline, and President Trump hastily dismissed these careful environmental considerations in favor of political and personal interests. We applaud the courts for protecting our laws and regulations from undue political influence and will ask the Court to shut down pipeline operations immediately.”

The Tribe’s inspiring and courageous fight has attracted international attention and drawn the support of hundreds of tribes around the nation.

The Tribe is represented by the nonprofit environmental law firm Earthjustice, which filed a lawsuit challenging the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for issuing a permit for the pipeline construction in violation of several environmental laws.

“This decision marks an important turning point. Until now, the rights of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe have been disregarded by the builders of the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Trump administration—prompting a well-deserved global outcry,” said Earthjustice attorney Jan Hasselman. “The federal courts have stepped in where our political systems have failed to protect the rights of Native communities.”

The Court ruled against the Tribe on several other issues, finding that the reversal allowing the pipeline complied with the law in some respects.

The $3.8 billion pipeline project, also known as Bakken Oil Pipeline, extends 1,168 miles across North Dakota, South Dakota, Iowa, and Illinois, crossing through communities, farms, tribal land, sensitive natural areas and wildlife habitat. The pipeline would carry up to 570,000 barrels a day of crude oil from the Bakken oil fields in North Dakota to Illinois where it links with another pipeline that will transport the oil to terminals and refineries along the Gulf of Mexico.

What’s up -lyrics
Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get that great big hill of hope
For a destination
I realized quickly when I knew I should
That the world was made up of this brotherhood of man
For whatever that means
And so I cry sometimes
When I’m lying in bed Just to get it all out
What’s in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What’s going on?
And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah
I said hey, what’s going on?
And I say, hey yeah yeah, hey yeah yeah
I said hey, what’s going on?
oh, oh oh
oh, oh oh
And I try, oh my god do I try
I try all the time, in this institution
And I pray, oh my god do I pray
I pray every single day
For a revolution.
And so I cry sometimes
When I’m lying bed
Just to get it all out
What’s in my head
And I, I am feeling a little peculiar
And so I wake in the morning
And I step outside
And I take a deep breath and I get real high
And I scream from the top of my lungs
What’s going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what’s going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what’s going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what’s going on?
And I say, hey hey hey hey
I said hey, what’s going on?
oh, oh oh oh
Twenty-five years and my life is still
Trying to get that great big hill of hope
For a destination

El arte es amor infinito
La vida da vueltas, estamos escritos
Esas vueltas son la evolución
Cada uno elige su destino y su situación
Libérate del 4×4, pasa con tu vieja un rato
Ni perros ni gatos, ni blancos ni negro
Seré una gota, una piedra, un grano de maíz en el saco
Estoy aquí ah

Con las manos limpias
Esta es la verdadera hija de las estrellas
La esencia de la vida hay que buscarla
Prohibido envejecer, y después ayer
Amor para Lorca y todos los amantes de la belleza
En todas sus formas, sola con mis libro de hojas
Enseño lo que sé, lo que duele duele
Y nada más se puede hacer
Que sentir, ya no me dejo morir
Déjame existir, aceptemos los errores
Gracias por los dones, por los condones
Por la, y la ternura de quien no se impone
Odio es amor es truncado, vive amando, que no te
Importe el resultado
Estoy aquí ama, ama, ama, ama, ama.

The Mystery of Water – What we know is a drop

Directors: Gundi Lamprecht & Hans Kronberger
Via YouTube | Published on Sep 14, 2012 / Originally created in 2008

 

Water burns? Water has a memory? Water can be affected by cell phones? It seems that there is much more to know about water than what we are taught about in science class at school. In this video you will learn about how water is affected by electricity and microwaves and that the water will carry that information and pass it along to other water. You will learn about an Austrian inventor by the name of John Grander who invented a way to “revitalize” dead water.

La vida es impredecible: nacer, vivir, morir; es algo que sin excepción le toca a  cada uno de nosotros , el tema es que no sabemos cuándo, cómo ni porque y es ahí donde reside el problema. Sé que muchas veces no entendemos porque suceden las cosas y es fácil decirle a alguien que estas suceden por algo, pero la tarea difícil es muchas veces entenderlo y asimilarlo. Efectivamente a mediano o largo plazo, pase lo que pase, cada acción o suceso tiene una reacción y esperamos que está en mucho de los casos llegue a ser positiva.

Sí, es probable que existan personas que tengan que atravesar situaciones mucho más difíciles que otras y llegar a comprender por qué esto les ocurre a ellos es una tarea complicada. Muchas veces no nos parece justo e increíblemente en ocasiones me gustaría poder cargar con parte de ese sufrimiento para…

Un libro de colorear que homenajea la belleza natural de la proporción áurea

Un libro de colorear que homenajea la belleza natural de la proporción áurea

Autor: mymodernmet
Vía Cultura Inquieta | Abril 23, 2016

Artículo recomendado por Karla Castillo, colaboradora de México para Replicación de Arttextum

 

Las ilustraciones de Proporción Áurea dibujadas a mano por Rafael Araujo son una hermosa fusión del arte con la ciencia. Durante los últimos 40 años, el arquitecto e ilustrador venezolano ha estado perfeccionando sus sorprendentes dibujos, todos conectados por ese hilo conductor.

Armado de lápiz, compás, regla, transportador de ángulos y nada más, crea dibujos que representan la brillantez matemática del mundo natural y recientemente ha comenzado a recopilar versiones de sus mejores trabajos en un libro de colorear para adultos que busca el reencuentro de los seres humanos con la naturaleza.

Las ilustraciones de Araujo giran en torno a los inteligentes patrones de crecimiento gobernados por la Proporción Áurea. Este número especial, comúnmente anotado con la letra griega Phi (φ), es igual a 1,618 y se puede observar en todo tipo de espirales naturales, secuencias y proporciones.

“Phyllotaxis” es como se denomina  la tendencia de las cosas orgánicas a crecer en patrones en espiral y este patrón numérico se repite tan a menudo en la naturaleza que algunos investigadores lo han considerado una norma universal de perfección de estructuras, formas y proporciones.

Desde conchas de mar, hojas, cristales, e incluso alas de mariposa, podemos rastrear el número Phi a lo largo de nuestro entorno, una y otra vez.

Aplicar la Proporción Áurea a sus dibujos y dejar las líneas de construcción en las imágenes finales, permite a Araujo crear diseños que claramente gravitan alrededor de este marco matemático. Cada composición es cuidadosamente detallada y puede llevar hasta 100 horas al artista completar una sola de ellas.

Four Charles Bukowski Poems Animated

Four Charles Bukowski Poems Animated

Author: 
Via Open Culture | May 5, 2014

Article and videos recommended by Karla Castillo from Mexico, collaborator of Arttextum’s Replicación

The poetry of Charles Bukowski deeply inspires many of its readers. Sometimes it just inspires them to lead the dissolute lifestyle they think they see glorified in it, but other times it leads them to create something compelling of their own. The quality and variety of the Bukowski-inspired animation now available on the internet, for instance, has certainly surprised me.

At the top of the post, we have Jonathan Hodgson’s adaptation of “The Man with the Beautiful Eyes,” which puts vivid, colorful imagery to Bukowski’s late poem that draws from his childhood memories of a mysterious, untamed young man in a run-down house whose very existence reminded him “that nobody wanted anybody to be strong and beautiful like that, that others would never allow it.” Below, you can watch Monika Umba’s even more unconventional animation of “Bluebird“:

Without any words spoken on the soundtrack and only the title seen onscreen — a challenging creative restriction for a poetry-based short — Umba depicts the narrator’s “bluebird in my heart that wants to get out.” But the narrator, “too tough for him,” beats back the bluebird’s escape with whiskey, cigarettes, and a policy of only letting him roam “at night sometimes, when everybody’s asleep.”

You’ll find Bradley Bell’s interpretation of “The Laughing Heart,” a poem that advises its readers not to let their lives “be clubbed into dank submission,” to “be on the watch,” for “there are ways out.” “You can’t beat death,” Bukowski writes, “but you can beat death in life, sometimes.” In Bell’s short, these words come from the mouth of the also famously dissolution-chronicling singer-songwriter Tom Waits, certainly Bukowski’s most suitable living reader (and one who, all told, comes second only to the man himself). Only fitting that one inspiring creator delivers the work of another — in the sort of labor of enthusiasm that, too, will inspire its audience to create.

At the bottom the post, you will find “Roll the Dice,” an animation suggested by one of our readers, Mark.

You can find readings of Bukowski poems in the poetry section of our collection of Free Audio Books.

HUMAN is a collection of stories and images of our world, offering an immersion to the core of what it means to be human. Through these stories full of love and happiness, as well as hatred and violence, HUMAN brings us face to face with the Other, making us reflect on our lives. From stories of everyday experiences to accounts of the most unbelievable lives, these poignant encounters share a rare sincerity and underline who we are – our darker side, but also what is most noble in us, and what is universal. Our Earth is shown at its most sublime through never-before-seen aerial images accompanied by soaring music, resulting in an ode to the beauty of the world, providing a moment to draw breath and for introspection.

School Replaces Detention With Meditation And Results Are Amazing

Author: James Gould-Bourn
Via Bored Panda | October, 2016

 

Robert W. Coleman School in Baltimore sounds like the best school ever. Why? Because there’s no such thing as detention at the Baltimore Elementary.

Yep, you heard that correctly. Instead they have a Mindful Moment Room, a brightly colored “oasis of calm” that looks about as far as you can get from the windowless detention rooms typically used to punish unruly kids. It’s part of an after-school programme called Holistic Me, an initiative that teaches children to practice mindful meditation and breathing exercises while encouraging them to talk to behavioral professionals. The programme works in partnership with a local non-profit called the Holistic Life Foundation, and the results so far have been pretty impressive. In fact, since first taking part in the programme two years ago, Robert W. Coleman hasn’t issued a single suspension.
