Doctor Jekyll y Mister Hyde

Grin. I first read this story in the comic version pictured here from Classic Comics, when I was 9 or 10 years of age.

Un paralelismo entre las descripciones de Jekyll y Hyde que nos ofrece Stevenson:

Jekyll «era un hombre de unos cincuenta años, alto, fornido, de rostro delicado, con una expresión algo astuta, quizás, pero que revelaba inteligencia y bondad». No existe, por tanto, razón alguna para suponer que Jekyll careciera de cualidades positivas. Tan sólo la alusión a su «expresión algo astuta» nos hace sospechar que bajo su apariencia apacible y bondadosa podría ocultarse una personalidad mucho más problemática.

En otro momento el mismo Jekyll se describe a sí mismo con más detalle diciendo que era un hombre «merecedor del respeto de los mejores y más sabios de mis semejantes», lo cual confirma que su aparente bondad y amabilidad encubría un deseo desmedido de aprobación social que le llevó a adoptar una pose ante la galería o, lo que es lo mismo, que su amabilidad tenía como único objetivo conseguir…

Y una madrugada, en otra fecha, tu alma partió de este mundo, padre mío, con el hueco que dejan las ausencias de quienes uno ama tanto, quizá para emular tus principios y tu ejemplo, probablemente con el objetivo de hilvanar capítulos bellos e inolvidables en tu memoria, o sin duda porque así es la trama de la vida y fue parte de nuestro proceso evolutivo y de la historia inolvidable, bella, mágica e irrepetible que compartimos.

Otra mañana, a cierta hora, tú, mi inolvidable madre, te marchaste de este plano y aquí quedamos, tus hijos, tus descendientes, enmedio del mundo, con la desolación que seguramente también experimentaron tus flores y tus plantas, en el jardín que cultivabas mientras suspirabas y morías en silencio, como una reina que ha superado todas las pruebas y espera, finalmente, la más grandiosa de…

Miami Herald hits DeSantis on vaccine claims: ‘Profile in selfishness’ | TheHill

“It’s about your health and whether you want that protection or not. It really doesn’t impact me or anyone else,” DeSantis said last week, which the Herald’s editorial board commented on in an editorial piece. “Doesn’t impact anyone else? Talk about a profile in selfishness,” the Herald board wrote. “Almost 46,000 have died of COVID in his state since the pandemic began. Too bad we can’t ask the thousands who have died since vaccines became available if they wished everyone around them had gotten vaccinated.”

Mexico gender parity: Congress is half female, female governors make historic gains – The Washington Post

For the first time, 50 percent of lawmakers in Mexico’s lower house of Congress are women. (That compares with 27 percent in the U.S. House of Representatives.) Women are set to lead nearly a quarter of Mexico’s 32 states, after historic gains in the June midterm elections. In several states, including Sonora, women will outnumber men in local legislatures.

A Perfect Afternoon On Beebee Lake

Michael Stephen Wills Photography

After work on a 2008 Friday afternoon in October we sped over to Beebee Lake on the Cornell University Campus to catch the late afternoon glow.

Beebe Lake is formed by a dam on Fall Creek. It seems to be the flooded meadow it is, surrounded by hills formed by glaciers 10,000 years ago. Cornell maintains footpaths around the lake.

People say that if a couple walk the a mile around the lake and over a bridge at either end, they are destined to be married.  This day we passed only joggers and families.  Pam and I will celebrated our tenth anniversary March 2019, so the legend worked for us.

Here are four snapshots from that time, presented in chronological order. Each is a handheld shot taken on the fly using my Sony Alpha 700 I use for exploratory photography.

Sheriff Villanueva Demotes Challenger Vera, Who Claims Political Retaliation | LAist

But when Vera decided to challenge the sheriff in next year’s election, everything changed. Vera says Villanueva sent him a letter asking him how he could possibly serve as a chief while running against his boss. Last week, the sheriff answered his own question — Vera could not. Villanueva demoted Vera one rank from one of 11 chief positions in the department to commander. He also moved him from the Technology and Support Division to the Court Service Division, considered by some a backwater. ‘Retaliation’ Or A Reasonable Personnel Move? Vera called the move “politically-driven retaliation.” “I think what he wants to do is hurt my campaign in order to bring discredit upon me,” Vera told LAist.

New Dawn in Afghanistan shadowed by uncertainty.

“Why did the Taliban talk about general amnesty, women rights, when none of the appointed ministers are women or any of the ministers from the ousted Ashraf Ghani administration or Hamid Karzai administration?

What changes will this new regime bring in Afghanistan, Asia and The World? Only time will tell. However, after judging the new appointees one thing is certain that the UN, EU or the West don’t hold any ground in the decision making process of the new Taliban regime.”

Here is the list of ministers announced today in the official briefing of the Taliban :-

• Prime Minister – Mullah Hasan Akhund

  • Deputy Minister or 1st Vice President – Abdul Ghani Baradar

  • Deputy Minister or 2nd Vice President – Mullah Abdus Salam
