Rebelion. "Puerto Rico sufre la agonía de ser colonia del imperio yanqui"

RebeliÃ⊃3;n es un medio de informaciÃ⊃3;n alternativa para las noticias que no son consideradas importantes por los medios de comunicaciÃ⊃3;n tradicionales.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Rafael Cancel Miranda, estuvo preso un cuarto de siglo en Puerto Rico bajo el cargo de ser un "nacionalista peligroso": Hoy habla sobre el origen de la crisis de la deuda puertorriqueña y afirma que un estado independiente podría negociar una salida del default sin hacer recortes en los beneficios sociales a los más pobres.

Incansable luchador por la independencia de Puerto Rico, Rafael Cancel Miranda comparte su visión sobre la necesidad de salir de lo que llama "el coloniaje" de su país, una nación con identidad e historia propia, sometida hace un siglo al poder de los Estados Unidos. Tal es ese sometimiento, que la pequeña nación caribeña entró recientemente en default y por las propias características de esa dominación, denunciada históricamente ante la ONU en una lista de 25 puntos, ni siquiera "puede declararse en quiebra". Preso 25 años y medio por una acción armada libertaria contra el Congreso de EE UU en 1954, considerado por las fuerzas policiales como un "nacionalista peligroso", Cancel Miranda analiza el presente y futuro de un país que se debate entre la independencia y la pertenencia condicionada al país más poderoso del mundo.

The Ramos-Trump Exchange: GOP Candidate's Muddled, Xenophobic Message

The Ramos-Trump Exchange: GOP Candidate's Muddled, Xenophobic Message | Global politics | Scoop.it
Donald Trump parried questions by Univision's Jorge Ramos with a brief and racist rant before having Ramos ejected from the proceedings.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"It is a grave error not to take Donald Trump seriously. His ideas are very dangerous.… Many millions of Americans think the way he does, and this is what is very dangerous.

"They blame immigrants…. We need to make sure that we will not accept this sitting down…. There comes a moment to confront that."

When asked if he believes he will ever have a sit-down interview with Trump, he said he doubted it despite the fact that Trump was "someone so outspoken."

In conclusion, Ramos said, "16 million Latinos will be able to go to the polls in the next election and it is very important for Latinos to come out and vote."

Fort Russ: Buy a seat in the Verkhovna Rada: $3,000,000 to $10,000,000. A good investment | Global politics | Scoop.it
Enrique Ferro's insight:
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Why should the West help Ukraine continue despite corruption?
Fiala: Because this is a good investment. The citizens here do not have to be convinced of the necessity of change. They are willing, even to suffer. The gas tariffs were increased several times over without significant protests. In addition: Ukraine will depend for years on Western loans. This gives foreigners leverage. Money only after fulfillment of the reform guidelines, has to be the motto.

«Деловая жизнь» — RT: Ложные данные о потерях РФ на Украине появились на сайте после взлома | Global politics | Scoop.it
Западные и украинские СМИ публикуют «сенсационные» сведения о потерях российских вооружённых сил на Украине со ссылкой на Forbes. Причём само американское издание указывает в качестве первоисточника российский информационный портал «Деловая жизнь». Корреспондент RT Илья Петренко попытался выйти на связь с редакцией, чтобы выяснить, откуда её журналисты почерпнули данные об участии армии России в конфликте на востоке Украины.

Bernie Sanders recently convened a panel of economists in Washington to discuss the debt crisis in Greece and throughout the world.

Article: WikiLeaks Attorneys Oppose Diplomatic Retaliation

Article: WikiLeaks Attorneys Oppose Diplomatic Retaliation | Global politics | Scoop.it
According to lawyers from the Center for Constitutional Rights, UK has threatened to storm the Ecuadorean Embassy in clear violation of international law.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"We are deeply troubled by the reported diplomatic protest made by the United Kingdom against Ecuador for granting asylum to Assange and by the continued menacing police presence outside the Embassy of Ecuador in London," lawyers from the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) declared.

The UK, according to CCR, has "previously threatened to storm the Ecuadorean Embassy and arrest Assange, in clear violation of the Vienna Convention's protection of the inviolability of sovereign embassy properties."

Attorneys described asylum as a "humanitarian act," which the United Nations General Assembly has "unanimously declared" as an act other countries should never construe as unfriendly. Yet, the U.S., U.K., and Sweden have protested and threatened diplomatic consequences against Ecuador.

"We call on the British government to explicitly and immediately confirm that it will honor its international and diplomatic commitments," CCR demanded.

Earth's mineralogy unique in the cosmos

Earth's mineralogy unique in the cosmos | Global politics | Scoop.it
New research predicts that Earth has more than 1,500 undiscovered minerals and that the exact mineral diversity of our planet is unique and could not be duplicated anywhere in the cosmos.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

Further expanding the link between geological and biological evolution, Hazen's team applied the biological concepts of chance and necessity to mineral evolution. In biology, this idea means that natural selection occurs because of a random "chance" mutation in the genetic material of a living organism that becomes, if it confers reproductive advantage, a "necessary" adaptation.

Article: The Myth of a Russian "Threat"

Article: The Myth of a Russian "Threat" | Global politics | Scoop.it
Not a week goes by without the Pentagon carping about an ominous Russian "threat." The connection's wet dreams -- shared, incidentally, by the neo-cons -- would be a glorious return to the looting phase of Russia in the 1990s, when the Russian industrial-military complex had collapsed and the West was plundering natural resources to Kingdom Come.
Enrique Ferro's insight:

"Threats are the combination, or the aggregate, of capabilities and intentions. Let me set aside for the moment, intentions, because I don't know what Russia intends."

So Dempsey admits he does not know what he's talking about. What he seems to know is that Russia is a "threat" anyway -- in space, cyber space, ground-based cruise missiles, submarines.

And most of all, a threat to NATO; "One of the things that Russia does seem to do is either discredit, or even more ominously, create the conditions for the failure of NATO."

So Russia "does seem" to discredit an already self-discredited NATO. That's not much of a "threat."

Эквадор стал первым членом ОПЕК, вынужденным продавать нефть по цене ниже себестоимости. Тяжёлая ситуация на рынке побудила несколько стран, входящих в организацию, призвать Саудовскую Аравию — фактического лидера ОПЕК — к проведению экстренного совещания. По словам Эда Хирса, управляющего директора компании Hillhouse Resources, Эр-Рияд тоже находится в непростом положении, поскольку он быстро расходует свои золотовалютные резервы.
