In this Christmas I Ask to God or the infinite forces of the Universe:  

I ask, in prayer that supports my friends and family that read this message, right now, and get the truth of this life and to apply it in their own present life.

So they will be happy and they getting remove the internal force that have themselves. 

That your thoughts, words and actions permit them obtain the lighting, love and truth that they need for transcend in mind, body and spirit. 

That the love transcend the religions or ideologies that everybody have it and only a desire of love, peace, justice, solidarity and Tolerance, lead our lives today, tomorrow and always. 

That Christmas be the start for this great crusade. 

Remember, friends and family that all our spiritual power is inside of us.  We don’t depend on other people to be happy or for remove all our potential. 

Only you can do that    


CARLOS (Tiger without Time)  a verdad de esta vida para aplicarla en su propia vida actual y




On march 16, 2003, Rachel Corrie, wearing a bright-orange jacket and holding a bullhorn, tried to shield the home of a Palestinian civilian in a refugee camp in the Rafah area of the Gaza Strip, one of three thousand homes that were demolished by Israeli forces between 2001 and 2003. She was crushed to death by an Israeli Caterpillar.

In the subsequent furor, Corrie was labeled both a traitor and a martyr.

Rachel Corrie was never a terrorist. She never sympathized with Al Qaeda. Her blond hair and U.S. nationality and the fact than no Arab blood ran in her veins made her stand out among the other young women in the Gaza Strip. Neither was she a follower of Islam and she was barely 23 years old.

Rachel lived in Olympia, in the state of Washington, and she had been far from home for many months. She belonged to the International Solidarity Movement and for the moment her profession was a new one for the 21st century: that of a human shield against evil and wrongdoing.

One might guess at the reasons why Rachel found herself in a Palestinian refugee camp in Gaza, and why she postponed her dream of graduating from college, leaving behind for the moment the beautiful possibility of loving, of having children.

She wanted now, not later to bear witness to the Palestinian tragedy and, far from home, she was learning the true meaning of U.S. justice.

Rachel was guilty. Guilty according to Israeli statements of being in the wrong country at the wrong time with the wrong people. She was guilty of not staying home to dance in the discotheques of the United States, of ceasing to be a common, ordinary citizen.

She chose to stand in front of a Palestinian home at the moment an Israeli bulldozer was trying to tear it down. In the first image captured on camera, she is challenging the driver with a megaphone in her hand. Her hair is loose around her shoulders.

She places her body between the weakened wall of the house and the brutal shovel of the bulldozer. The scene takes place in Rafah, in Gaza, and her protective gesture is poignant. Never has such an undefended, fragile person challenged a vehicle transformed into a machine of death and destruction.

One cannot hear her words. Next to her in the first photograph is another young solidarity worker, perhaps of her same nationality. In the second photo, she is on the ground bleeding. According to witnesses the bulldozer, after stopping for awhile, decided to move forward. After knocking her down with the first blow, it backed up and attacked once again.

With a turn of the steering wheel, the driver drove away from the scene. He changed direction and left her there to one side, like some unimportant object: the house still standing, the young woman on the ground.

The image has no sound. (What was she shouting at her assassin? Her cries were not in Hebrew, but in the purest English pronounced by a pure girl.

The Israeli soldier could not understand why the shouts were directed at him in the same language of his godfather and protector. Maybe he thought for an instant how odd were these blond Palestinians speaking English, a second before he floored the accelerator for the final attack.

Silence. The death of a blond young woman, 23 years old, crushed to death in Gaza, deserves silence. There are no investigations. No one orders the assassin arrested because that would mean one less driver for the bulldozers, for the tanks, one less soldier to carry on the killing. And all of them are needed to keep carrying out these crimes.

No one has expressed regret to Rachel’s parents. Only the Palestinian leader has expressed his condolences. Nothing important has happened because no one has to ask forgiveness in the United States or Israel. No one has begged forgiveness or even contemplated the collateral damage. It is not necessary.

Perhaps they may even think that the Palestinians were responsible, for not preventing her from standing in front of that house at the hour of the disaster.

If the young woman stood together with the Arab people under attack, together with the Third World, it is a certain fact that she was not a legitimate U.S. citizen. If she were one, she would have been like the President of her country, on the side of Zionism.

Something is missing from their statistics: Rachel Corrie is the first U.S. martyr, the first U.S. blood shed on Palestinian soil in Gaza. Now her banner is raised and flies in the wind. From now on she will accompany the struggle, because she has entered into history to accompany the sadness and pain of the Palestinian nation.

Missiles and bombs will fall now on Bagdad, the mourning will spread to new homes and this image will remain as the terrible face of the United States. The United States has two faces, the contemptible face of Bush, and the sweet face of Rachel .

He, arrogance, she, solidarity; he, disrespect for a sovereign people, she, admiration and love of humanity.

Unlike everything that W. Bush stands for, Rachel represents the beautiful face of the United States, and the beautifully human face is everlasting.

 Mothers are made, not born. Virtually all female mammals, from rats to monkeys to humans, undergo fundamental behavioral changes during pregnancy and motherhood. 

Although scientists have long observed and marveled at this transition, only now are they beginning to understand what causes it.New research indicates that the dramatic hormonal fluctuations that occur during pregnancy, birth and lactation may remodel the female brain, increasing the size of neurons in some regions and producing structural changes in others. 

The cortisol, which typically rises with stress and can have a negative impact on health, may have a positive effect in new mothers. By raising cortisol levels, the stress of parenting may boost attention, vigilance and sensitivity, strengthening the mother-infant bond. 

Other studies have pointed to a possible long-term effect of motherhood. Women who had been pregnant at or after the age of 40 were four times more likely to survive to 100 than women who had been pregnant earlier in life. 

But can these skills transfer from the nursery to the boardroom?Scientists do not yet know the answer, but studies indicate that the human brain is remarkably plastic: its structure and activity can change when a person is confronted with a challenge.

ENGLISH is the collective work of millions of people throughout the ages. It is democratic, ever changing, and ingenious in its assimilation of other cultures.Nearly two billion people understand today

English runs through the heart of world finance, medicine, and the Internet, and it across our world. And it seems set to go on.  Yet it was nearly wiped out in its early years. In this thoroughly researched and ground-breaking book, Melvyn Bragg shows us the remarkable story of the English language, from its modest beginnings around A.D. 500 as a minor guttural Germanic dialect to its current position as a truly established global language. From the beginning English was battle hardened in strategies of survival and takeover.

After the first tribes arrived it was not certain which dialect if any would become dominant. Out of the confusion of a land, the majority of whose speakers for most of that time spoke Celtic, garnished in some cases by leftover Latin, where tribal independence and regional control were ferociously guarded, English took time to emerge as the common tongue. There had been luck, but also cunning and the beginnings of what was to become English’s most subtle and ruthless characteristic of all: its capacity to absorb others. 

Along the way its colorful story takes in a host of characters, locations, and events. From Anglo-Saxon tribes, the Norman invasion in 1066, and on to the arrival of such early literary masterpieces as Beowulf and Geoffrey Chaucer’s bawdy Canterbury Tales. With anecdotes only a novelist as accomplished. The tales of Henry VIII”s battles with the church over bootleg Bibles, and the influence of William Shakespeare, who alone contributed 2,000 new words to the language. With its spread to North America, English expanded with the songs of the Creole slaves, with Lewis and Clark’s expedition West, which coined hundreds of new terms as the explorers discovered hitherto unknown flora and fauna. From street slang and Dr. Johnson’s dictionary to the role of English in India. 

Embracing elements of Latin, French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Arabic, Hindi, and Gullah. This process continues, day by day, to change, along with the English language. 

Singlish in Singapore is a good example. English was used in Singapore for a hundred fifty years and when it went independent in 1958, Singapore made it the official language of business and government, partly because English united the diverse population of Chinese, Malays and Indians and partly because of its commercial and financial importance. But alongside official English you also hear Singlish, which grows and develops despite the efforts of the government to root it out. Some scholars believe that Singlish indicates the way in which future Englishes will develop. In so many ways it fits the tongues and the traditions and the vocal rhythms of the people of Singapore much better than official English and could threaten to replace it. And is it not yet another dialect of English? 

The Internet took off in English and although there are now fifteen hundred languages on the Internet, seventy percent of it is still in English. And a new form of English has just appeared back at base –Text English.This appeared in an issue of the Guardian early in 2003, under “English as a Foreign Language”:

This is yet another English and totally comprehensible to its users, who are mostly young and therefore influential on the future of the language.  “I love you” is now more commonly the text “I luv u”.

WHAT IS A PLANET? It seems such a simple question, but the answer keeps getting more and more confused. On the one hand, the line between planets and lesser bodies is notoriously hazy.

Just last year astronomers identified a body larger than Pluto in the outermost solar system, rekindling the old debate over whether Pluto really qualifies as a planet and, if it does, why large asteroids do not. Even newspapers and museums have jumped into the fray. Less well known, though, is the muddle at the upper end of the planetary scale: the blurring of the divide between planets and stars.

The distinction used to be straightforward: a star shines by its own light, whereas a planet merely reflects the light of the star it orbits.

In the more rigorous parlance of physics, stars are massive enough to undergo stable hydrogen fusion in their interiors over a sustained period, making them self-luminous. They form out of collapsing clouds of interstellar gas. Planets, on the other hand, are too puny and cold to initiate fusion.

They are thought to congeal out of the debris floating around newborn stars; in short, they are leftover scraps of the star formation process.

In the past decade, however, astronomers have discovered panoply of bodies that smear these boundaries. Straddling the mass range between planets and stars, sharing many characteristics with both but classifiable as neither, they yield fundamental insights into stellar and planetary formation and properties. These are the brown dwarfs.

They span a mass range of 12 to 75 jupiters: too light to attain the high central temperatures required to fuse ordinary hydrogen nuclei but heavy enough to fuse deuterium, a less common isotope of hydrogen.

Newly formed brown dwarfs shine like feeble stars but quickly exhaust their deuterium supply and star to cool down like planets.

The laws of physics imply that the size of young brown dwarfs (like that of stars) represents a balance between the inward pull of gravity and the outward push of thermal gas pressure. But older ones (like very massive planets) settle into an equilibrium between gravity and the quantum pressure exerted by densely packed electrons.
The atmospheres of young brown dwarfs should manifest the exotic meteorological phenomena, such as clouds, dust settling and precipitation, usually associated with planets.· It was summarized of Magazine “Scientific American”, January 2006
