Los apodos son una costumbre entre los kichwas de Imbabura | Galapagos | Scoop.it
En algunas comunidades kichwas de Otavalo, en Imbabura, los vecinos son conocidos más por sus ‘motes’ que por sus nombres. Los apodos se toman a partir de características físicas y anímicas de cada sujeto o de alguna anécdota. Entre las mujeres no es común esta costumbre.

Small Tribe With a Big Voice Vows to Stop Chinese Oil Drilling in the Amazon

Small Tribe With a Big Voice Vows to Stop Chinese Oil Drilling in the Amazon | Galapagos | Scoop.it
QUITO, Ecuador—Wearing a traditional headdress and a white vest woven from the bark of an Amazonian tree, Manari Ushigua held a megaphone to his mouth to denounce Ecuador’s latest oil deal: A multi-million dollar contract that will allow oil drilling on his tribe’s territory for the first time in four decades.

“We don’t want oil drilling in our lands,” said Ushigua, one of the most well-known leaders of Ecuador’s tiny Zapara tribe. “Our culture is at risk of disappearing; so is our language and our way of relating to the rainforest.”



For several years Ecuador has been trying to increase oil production by inviting foreign companies to drill in the Sur Oriente, a largely untouched area of the Amazon rainforest that’s about the size of Massachusetts and considered one of the most biodiverse places on earth.

Colombia registra más de 20.000 casos de zika, más de 2.000 en embarazadas

Colombia registra más de 20.000 casos de zika, más de 2.000 en embarazadas | Galapagos | Scoop.it
Colombia registra más de 20.000 casos de personas infectadas por el virus zika, que afecta a gran parte de América Latina, más de 2.000 de ellos en mujeres embarazadas, informó este sábado el Instituto Nacional de Salud.

Según el último boletín epidemiológico, los casos de zika son 20.297, 2.116 de ellos en embarazadas. Colombia es el segundo país más afectado de la región por el virus, después de Brasil.

Aunque en general los síntomas del zika son leves -fiebre baja, dolor de cabeza y articular o sarpullidos- se sospecha que embarazadas que contraen zika pueden tener luego bebés con microcefalia, una enfermedad congénita irreversible que provoca daños irreparables en el desarrollo motor y cognitivo del niño.

De los casos notificados, 1.050 fueron confirmados por exámenes de laboratorio, 17.115 confirmados por clínica y 2.132 son casos sospechosos. El virus ya afecta a 193 municipios del país y el 63,6% de las infecciones han afectado a mujeres.

El gobierno colombiano decretó el pasado martes el nivel de alerta verde que pide a los hospitales de municipios ubicados a menos de 2.200 metros de altura estar prevenidos ante una fase expansiva del virus zika.

Además, las autoridades recomendaron a las parejas posponer entre seis y ocho meses los embarazos.

El zika es transmitido por el mosquito Aedes aegypti, que también transmite dengue, fiebre amarilla y chicunguña.

En Colombia, se prevén más de 600.000 infectados por el virus este año y medio millar de casos de microcefalia si se repite la situación que vive Brasil, el país más afectado por esta epidemia, con más de un millón y medio de casos.
