Amor Próprio comigo!

“Amor próprio é a régua da minha consciência, usada para ensinar os outros a respeito do meu protocolo pessoal.”

Marii Freire.

Você saberia definir o que é amor próprio? Como eu sei que me amo? Quais são as bases que, uma vez trabalhadas, acabam sendo essenciais para que eu possa alicerçar o meu amor próprio? Você já parou para pensar sobre isso? O amor próprio é pautado no que tange aos nossos valores pessoais, as nossas crenças, sobretudo a nossa virtudes. Eu diria que diante de uma situação, se existe algo que ” oxigena a alma”, certamente o amor próprio se faz presente, porque amor próprio tem ligação com a alma, com as nossas virtudes, com valores inegociaveis.

Ora, falar a respeito de amor próprio não é uma tarefa fácil, porque a minha percepção pode ser diferente da sua. É como os sonhos, ninguém tem os sonhos iguais ao dos…

the light dawning on your face

Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

A poem in Vietnamese by Lê Vĩnh Tài
Translator: Nguyễn Thị Phương Trâm

you would write
write with
the making of a world on fire
a burden upon poetry
the burgeoning glory in your hand
the words swelling-up on command

encryptions carved in rocks
the complicated vows of a nation

the words polished
with your sweat
your pain

write everything that is within your grasp 
so much so that 
the hairs on your skin would curl up 
with the thoughts in your head

what is impossible
drill a hole 
drill a hole through this Godforsaken life…


the light dawning on your face
on your pages of poetry attacks your loneliness like a dagger the flash rips apart darkness the passion reserved for all the light makes you blush you don’t like it the damp wet spit those in a line those waiting their…

20 años del ‘Prestige’: “Tenían como norma mentir y rezar para que el fuel se volviese transparente”

Se cumplen dos décadas de la mayor catástrofe ambiental del país, aún con el grueso de las indemnizaciones en el aire. Analizamos con un activista y un marinero los peores momentos de la marea negra y qué supuso la movilización social histórica que evidenció una mala gestión política.

Las 15.15 horas del 13 de noviembre de 2002 quedaron grabadas para siempre como el momento en el que se comenzaría a escribir uno de los capítulos más oscuros de la historia de Galicia. Con tinta negra, por supuesto. En una jornada marcada por temporales con olas de hasta ocho metros, los servicios de Salvamento Marítimo recibieron un mensaje de socorro de un buque situado a 28 millas…

US Extends Nicaraguans’ TPS Protection until 2024 – Havana Times

The United States has extended for 18 months the Temporary Protective Status (TPS) held by immigrants from six countries, including Nicaragua, El Salvador, and Honduras. Some 4,250 Nicaraguans are in the US with these protections, and their continued presence in the country depends on this decision.

The extension measure, which benefits a total of 260,000 migrants from El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, Haiti, Nepal and Sudan, was announced on Thursday, November 10th, by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Those with TPS status now retain their right to work and live legally in the US, until June 2024.

This announcement was made less than two months before the current permission for these six nationalities was due to expire, on December 31.
