Cuban woman's message in a bottle washes up in U.S.

MELBOURNE, Fla. — Melbourne Beach's Shannon Johnson was walking on the beach on the morning of Dec. 3 when she noticed something that stood out.
"It was right before low tide, perfect timing, about 9:30, 10 and just looked down. I was picking up some trash and looked down and there it was."
"It" was a small medicine bottle that contained some rocks and other small particles … and a letter.
"I was afraid to open it at first like some crazy pirate put something toxic in it."
But eventually Johnson did open it and when she did she found a note in several pieces from a woman in Cuba inside of it. The letter, written in Spanish, detailed the woman's desire to come to America and better her and her family's life.
Johnson felt as though this was a story that needed to be shared, so to spread the message, Johnson shared the photo of the bottle and letter with her close friend Brittany Blanc of Melbourne. Blanc posted it to her Facebook profile, which drew interest from her friends.
One of those friends, Jason Schreiber, sent a message over Facebook to "three or four" of the woman's friends along with the woman herself.
"I dug deeper than anybody else," Schreiber said.
Eventually he made contact with the woman who sent the bottle.
"I sent her a picture of her bottle and I sent her a picture of her letter and I said, 'Is this you?' and she said, 'Oh my god, yes, yes that's me.'"
Schreiber discovered that she sent the bottle more than two months ago. He also found that she was a well-educated woman who wasn't poor, but simply wanted a better opportunity for herself and her family and seemed frustrated that she couldn't come to the United States.
The woman also wished not to be identified in any published story.
"I actually thought it was just a beautiful letter, and I don't think she even meant for anyone to find it," said Blanc, after reading the translated version of the letter.
The distance the bottle traveled differs depending upon how you calculate the distance from the northern coast of Cuba to the Space Coast, but the bottle traveled at least 300 miles before it washed ashore.
Schreiber shared the sentiment that Johnson and Blanc had of wanting to meet the woman in the United States, but he was unsure of what he could realistically do.
"I mean if there's any way I can get her over here to better her life or anything that'd be awesome."
The woman's frustration is likely due to the steep odds she faces in coming to this country.
According to David Stoller, certified immigration attorney, a Cuban citizen's path to coming to the United States rests with either having family here or winning one of two lotteries: the United States' Diversity Visa Lottery, or a second lottery offered in Cuba, only to Cubans. He said a Cuban national cannot be deported if they step foot in the U.S., which leads to some coming over in rafts and through other means.
"That's the way it works for everyone around the world. Your chances are slim and none unless you fit into some category in our system of either family, employment base, or a special program for people of certain countries like we have for the diversity visa process or a special set-up for Cubans," said Stoller.

Artist Uses Penis to Paint Portrait of Kim Kardashian's Naked Butt

Danish artist Uwe Max Jensen recreated Kim Kardashian's butt-baring Paper Magazine cover using his penis as a brush.

Jensen was reportedly so impressed by the shape of Kardashian's back side, that he used it as inspiration.
"I saw this picture of Kim Kardashian and this very impressive behind she has, and I thought, 'This must be portrait number two,'" said Jensen, via EOnline. 
So how did he pull it off, why did he do it, and does size matter? Jensen explains:
I have my penis in one hand and the canvas in the other.
I have a very skilled penis, art-wise.
It is hard to do an entire canvas using only one's natural brush.
If one is ill-equipped, it is difficult to reproduce the small details, but if one is well-endowed, it is easier to produce a better painting.
My penis is an organ. I need it to reproduce, and for sex and joy.
But I can also use it in my art, and that's joyful for me on more levels.
Jensen posted several photographs of the painting to his social media pages, and also a few NSFW ones of the creative process to his blog. 
This marks Jensen's second penis portrait. The first was of a Danish politician.
Jensen told the Daily Pot he tried to send the final product of his painting to the politician on Facebook, but he was blocked.

Loose screw from Air Canada propeller smashes into passenger's window mid-flight (PHOTOS)

On a recent flight from Penticton to Vancouver, an Air Canada passenger was startled by a loud pop outside his passenger window. A bolt had broken off the plane and burst through the outer pane of the window glass.
Reddit user Skips_LegDay posted his story earlier this week. “So about halfway through my flight I heard a loud POP, looked out my window at a bolt that flew off the prop and broke through the outer pane.”
“People around me heard it and seemed nervous once they saw the source of the sound. I got up and went to the flight attendant and quietly told her what happened, she came over to see it then called the pilot. He said it will be fine until we land as the cabin’s pressurised.”
“Once we landed and people stopped snapping pics, the pilot talked to me for a while. Said he’s never seen this happen in over 25 years of flying,” he added as comments piled up on his Reddit post.
Air Canada has confirmed the rare incident.
“While on descent into Vancouver on Nov. 25/14, (from Penticton, BC) flight #8353 had one of those twelve one-inch (2.5 cm) bolts come loose and strike one of the aircraft windows. The bolt struck the exterior pane (of two acrylic window panes) which resulted in a small hole in the exterior window pane – the interior pane was not impacted,” a spokesperson for the airline told MailOnline.
The aircraft safely landed in Vancouver. Air Canada admits the incident was highly unusual and maintenance personnel are inspecting the plane and making any necessary repairs. They have also apologized for any stress or concern the issue may have caused.
This follows an earlier Air Canada incident this month when a propeller smashed through a passenger’s window during an emergency landing in Edmonton and four passengers were sent to hospital.

'Wrestler' Actor Mickey Rourke Wins Exhibition Boxing Match in Moscow

NBC News.com
             
          
MOSCOW — Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke returned to the boxing ring Friday at the age of 62, defeating a fighter less than half his age in an exhibition bout. Rourke sent 29-year-old Pasadena native Elliot Seymour to the canvas twice in the second round before the referee stopped the fight.
The bout at a Moscow concert hall was Rourke's first fight in 20 years. He took a break from acting in the early 1990s, finishing a three-year pro boxing career with six wins and two draws. He hinted that the return to the ring has helped him cope with unspecified personal issues.
"I've got some things going on in my life so that (boxing has) sort of saved me from myself," Rourke told Russian TV. "And or a man like me, it's better to live in fear than go on in shame."
He has said he plans to hold another four fights in Russia. He took to the ring Friday in a Stetson hat, a red-and-gold robe and shiny gold gloves, repeatedly crossing himself. Rourke, who had said he lost 35 pounds to prepare for the fight, was much thinner than in his best-known cinematic fighting persona, when he bulked up to play the title character in 2008's "The Wrestler."
Seymour, a former California Golden Gloves champion with a 1-9 pro record, did not land any significant blows on Rourke, whose previous boxing career left him with injuries that he has previously said necessitated extensive plastic surgery to his face.

Researchers unearth new clues about ancient ‘computer’

Antikythera.jpg
 (Giovanni Dall Orto)
Researchers have unearthed new clues to an ancient Greek astronomical puzzle that has fascinated archaeologists for over a century.
The Antikythera Mechanism, an ancient machine dubbed “the world’s first computer,” was recovered from a treasure-laden shipwreck off the coast of Greece in 1901. However, the latest research by James Evans, professor of physics at the University of Puget Sound, and Christián Carman, history of science professor at the University of Quilmes, Argentina, sheds new light on the clocklike astronomical mechanism.
The study, published in the Archive for History of Exact Science, pinpoints the date when the mechanism was timed to begin as 205 B.C., making it 50 to 100 years older than previously thought.
According a statement released by the University of Puget Sound, the research “fills a gap in ancient scientific history by indicating that the Greeks were able to predict eclipses and engineer a highly complex machine” much earlier than was previously thought.
Evans and Carman’s work also supports the idea that the eclipse prediction scheme was not based on Greek trigonometry (which was nonexistent in 205 B.C.) but on Babylonian arithmetical methods, the University said.
The researchers arrived at the 205 B.C. date via a method of elimination they devised. Evans and Carman examined the hundreds of ways that the device’s eclipse patterns could match Babylonian records reconstructed by John Steele, professor of Egyptology and Assyriology at Brown University.
“The calculations take into account lunar and solar anomalies (which result in faster or slower velocity), missing solar eclipses, lunar and solar eclipse­s cycles, and other astronomical phenomena,” explained the University of Puget Sound, in its statement. “The work was particularly difficult because only about a third of the Antikythera’s eclipse predictor is preserved.”
The latest research may also place the Antikythera Mechanism close to the lifetime of Archimedes, who died in 212 B.C., although experts have questioned possible links to the celebrated mathematician.
The Mechanism’s heavily encrusted fragments are kept in the National Archaeological Museum of Athens.

F1 star Kimi Raikkonen drives a Lada

"What do you call a Lada driver with a speeding ticket? A liar."
Kimi Raikkonen might not have heard that old joke about the much-maligned car, an icon of the Soviet era, but it might give him a chuckle.
"I had a Russian Lada," the Formula One star revealed as he took CNN's The Circuit for a spin in a flashy sports car provided by his team Ferrari.
"I got it from a friend of ours. We changed the engine. It was perfect for us -- free of charge and a very robust car.
"It was red but we painted it black. It never broke down."

Supervivencia estadística en el ajedrez

microsiervos
Survival-Chess
Oliver Brennan hizo todo un análisis a partir de una pregunta en Quora: ¿Cuáles son las probabilidades de supervivencia de cada pieza de ajedrez en los juegos históricos en general? Así que preparó los 2,2 millones de partidas de la base de datos Million Base 2.2 (que abarca hasta julio de 2013) y puso una máquina a hacer crujir números.
Si eres el peón de e2, date por jodido.
El resumen es que para las blancas el peón de e2 es el que más veces es eliminado de la partida; curiosamente para las negras es el caballo de g8… Las siguientes piezas son el resto de caballos y los peones centrales. Hay una curiosa simetría en el resultado, lo que es interesante dado que el tablero no es simétrico y los conceptos de ataque y defensa están muy marcados desde el principio.
Los dos reyes tienen –obviamente– una probabilidad de supervivencia del cien por cien hasta el momento en que termina la partida. Las siguientes piezas más resistentes son los peones laterales: h2, h7, g2, a2… Del resto de piezas curiosamente las torres suelen sobrevivir más que las damas (aunque por poco); de hecho los expertos saben que más o menos el 60 por ciento de las partidas acaban en los llamados «finales de torres».
Aquí hay una curiosa visualización animada movimiento a movimiento de cómo cambian los valores a lo largo del conjunto de partidas.

The Bartender who Accidentally Saved the World

The evening of October 24, 1962 must have been quite a shift for the bar staff at the National Press Club. Only two nights before, President John Kennedy addressed the nation about Soviet missiles being discovered in Cuba and the imposition of a naval “quarantine” around the island. The uncertainty combined with the high stakes of a nuclear stand-off between two superpowers would’ve been enough to send DC’s elite searching for a place to grab a drink and seek out more news. As one of the few spots in Washington for power players of the day to blow off steam and exchange information, the tap room at the Press Club would’ve been packed.
Johnny Prokov, a Soviet émigré of Lithuanian decent, was working at the bar that night in a smoky atmosphere of heightened chatter. He had worked at the Press Club for three years and, like most bartenders, he would’ve been busy, juggling drink orders and cash while being friendly with regulars. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that night shifts at bars move quickly. They’re exciting and exhausting at the same time.
So it’s understandable that in the midst of a hectic night, Prokov caught only a snippet of a conversation between two regulars. Warren Rogers, a reporter with the New York Herald Tribune was sharing a drink with the paper’s Washington bureau chief, Robert Donovan. Prokov overheard Donovan saying that he would fly south later in the night to “cover the operation to capture Cuba.” Prokov, however, misheard the conversation and didn’t catch the most important part of the entire exchange. It was to be Rogers, not Donovan, who would fly south “to cover the operation to capture Cuba” as part of the Pentagon’s approved list of media members…if the decision was made to invade Cuba. It was a pretty big “if” to miss. As we know, the president and his advisors had not decided to invade Cuba.
At the end of his shift, the snippet of conversation he thought he heard was stuck in his head. At closing, bartenders are usually pre-occupied with settling the tabs of the remaining customers, cleaning up and prepping the bar for the next day’s opening. It’s mundane. But as the bar was closing, Anatoly Gorsky, a KBG spy working under cover as a Soviet journalist from Tass, dropped by for a late night drink. Despite all the urban mythology surrounding the adeptness of Soviet espionage, Soviet intelligence gathering in the United States was rudimentary at the time. No one in the Kremlin knew Kennedy’s intentions. It must have come as quite a surprise to Gorsky when Prokov passed along what he thought he heard. In fact, it was such a surprise that Gorsky left without his nightcap and went straight to the Soviet embassy to send a message to Moscow about the exchange.
Seeking to confirm what appeared to be Kennedy’s intention to invade Cuba, a Soviet embassy official arranged to coincidentally run into Rogers the following morning. When asked by the embassy official if Kennedy means what he says, Rogers recalls saying, “You’re damn right he does. He will do what he says he will do.”
News of the encounter went directly to Khrushchev’s office. A personal assistant and translator to the Soviet Premier recalled the great alarm that Khrushchev felt upon reading the intelligence of the conversation. It was in this context that Khrushchev penned an emotional letter to Kennedy that outlined the possibility of a deal—a pledge by the United States to lift the quarantine and not invade Cuba in exchange for missiles being removed from the island. It was this letter that Kennedy and his advisors responded to and used as a framework to gradually deescalate the crisis.
One wonders what might have happened had the events at the National Press Club bar played out a little differently. What if Prokov accurately heard the exchange between Donovan and Rogers? Would he have passed the information along to Gorsky at all? If he had, would Gorsky have thought it important enough to report to Moscow right away? If Gorsky hadn’t, would Khrushchev have taken a tougher line; one that Kennedy couldn’t accept? Would events have then begun to spiral towards a war, possibly involving a nuclear exchange?
Nothing about the Cuban missile crisis was a foregone conclusion. Key events in history are often near-run things. No outcome is inevitable. Fate often turns on an individual’s decision, like deciding to share a misheard conversation with a bar patron who just happened to be a Soviet spy.
There other things we don’t know about that night. We don’t know what Rogers, Donovan or Gorsky ordered to drink that night, but we do know what the popular drinks were of the time: martinis, manhattans, Rob Roys, brandy Alexanders. So fix one of these and raise your glass to Johnny Prokov. He may be the reason we’re still around to toast anyone at all.

Paul Kan is Professor of National Security Studies at the US Army War College and a former bartender. This particular episode in the Cuban Missile Crisis is recounted in two excellent books: Michael Dobbs’ One Minute To Midnight: Kennedy, Khrushchev and Castro on the Brink of Nuclear War and William Taubman’s Khrushchev: A Man and his Era.

El Ebola y el vuelo MH-17: Una hipotesis conspiratoria

la hipotesis conspiratoria que propone EL ROBOT PESCADOR  acerca que el derribo del boeing 777 de malaysia airlines en los alrededores de la villa de grabovo en la region ucraniana de donetsk envuelta en una guerra civil entre las autoridades de kiev y los separatistas rusos y apenas a 40 kms de la frontera con rusia, habria permitido unir "diversos intereses en diferentes asuntos, algo así como una oportunidad para matar varios pájaros de un tiro” , no se sostiene argumentalmente, pues aceptando la tesis de la conveniencia de eliminar fisicamente al consultor de la oms glenn thomas, existen mil maneras distintas de cumplir con ese objetivo puntual sin necesidad de sacrificar la vida del resto de las 297 personas entre pasajeros y tripulantes y abrir una investigacion internacional sobre el derribo en una zona que en ese momento era una de las mas volatiles y convulsas del mundo.
--------------------------
EL ROBOT PESCADOR

glenn thomas mh17
Cada vez parecen encajar más piezas en este diabólico puzzle.
Glenn Thomas, consultor de la OMS en Ginebra, experto en sida y, sobre todo, experto en el virus del Ébola, volaba a bordo del Boeing 777 de Malaysia Airlines (el vuelo MH-17), abatido sobre Ucrania este julio de 2014.
Glenn Thomas era uno de los portavoces de la OMS y estuvo involucrado en una serie de investigaciones acerca de las operaciones de prueba con el virus del Ébola en el laboratorio de armas biológicas en el hospital de Kenema, Sierra Leona.
Universidad de Tulane
Universidad de Tulane
Este laboratorio estaba asociado con la Universidad de Tulane, en Nueva Orleans y colaboraba también con el Instituto de Investigación Médica de Enfermedades Infecciosas del Ejército de EEUU (US Army Medical Research Institute of Infectious Disease)
USAMRIID_Logo
Recordemos también que en dicho laboratorio trabajaba el doctor Shiekh Humar Khan, el máximo experto en Ébola de Sierra Leona y considerado un héroe nacional por su lucha contra la enfermedad y que murió el pasado 29 de julio tras ser infectado por el virus.
Shiekh Humar Khan
Shiekh Humar Khan
Ahora que este laboratorio ha sido clausurado por orden del Gobierno de Sierra Leona, emergen detalles sobre los posibles intereses que se ocultan tras su gestión.
Bill y Melinda Gates tienen conexiones con el laboratorio de armas biológicas ubicado en Kenema, y ahora, después de la apertura de una investigación informal, aparece también el nombre de George Soros, que a través de su Fundación, estaría financiando estos laboratorios de armas biológicas.
Glenn Thomas era consciente de las evidencias que demostraban que el laboratorio había manipulado diagnosticos para que dieran positivo para el Ébola (en nombre de la Universidad de Tulane), con el fin de justificar la aplicación de un tratamiento médico obligatorio sobre la población. El objetivo final de esta maniobra sería aplicar una vacuna experimental contra el Ébola que, de hecho, infectaría con el virus a los pacientes.
Glenn Thomas
Glenn Thomas
Glenn Thomas se había negado a participar en este encubrimiento y esa podría ser la razón por la que Glenn Thomas habría sido asesinado (Nota: suponemos que el derribo de dicho avión uniría diversos intereses en diferentes asuntos, algo así como una oportunidad para “matar varios pájaros de un tiro”)
Los medios de comunicación oficiales nunca han informado sobre la presencia del laboratorio de armas biológicas en Kenema, y mucho menos de la disposición de cerrarlo con el fin de detener las pruebas con el Ébola por parte de la Universidad de Tulane.
El multimillonario George Soros, a través de la Fundación Soros Open Society, ha invertido significativamente y durante muchos años en el ahora conocido como el “triángulo de la muerte del Ébola” formado por Sierra Leona, Liberia y Guinea.
Por lo tanto, Soros sería uno de los principales interesados en acabar con la vida del portavoz de la OMS Glenn Thomas, con el fin de impedir que se propagara a través de los canales oficiales la noticia de que el brote de Ébola fue creado realmente en un laboratorio de armamento biológico.
Geroge Soros

Esto coincidiría con las denuncias de la población local, que acusaron al centro médico de Kenema de expandir artificialmente el virus, hasta el punto de atacarlo durante el verano, hecho que condujo al Ministerio de Salud de Sierra Leona a cerrarlo el pasado 23 de julio.
Quizás nunca lleguemos a conocer la verdad sobre el asunto, pero cada vez está más claro que todo lo referente al Ébola es uno de los asuntos más sucios y tenebrosos de los últimos tiempos…

Havana retro-Soviet restaurant a nod to nostalgia

Ramon Espinosa - AP Photo
In this Aug 20, 2014, photo, reproductions of Soviet propaganda posters hang at the Nazdarovie restaurant during its pre-launch dress rehearsal in Havana, Cuba. There’s no rice, beans or fried plantains at Havana’s newest private restaurant. The waiters speak Russian, and patrons are expected to do so too if they want to get served.

By PETER ORSI
HAVANA There's no rice, beans or fried plantains at Havana's newest private restaurant. You can order a minty mojito, but it'll come mixed with vodka instead of the traditional white rum.
The waiters speak Russian, and patrons are expected to order in that language if they want to get served. But don't worry, the menus at this retro-Soviet restaurant come with translations and pronunciation guides for the non-initiated.
Nazdarovie, which is named for the popular Russian toast and opened Friday, is all about Slavic fare like bowls of blood-red borscht and stuffed Ukrainian varenyky dumplings, hand-rolled in the back by "babushkas" who were born in the former Soviet Union but have long called Cuba home.
It's a nod to nostalgia for the island's Soviet ties during the Cold War, a time when Moscow was Havana's main source of trade and aid and hundreds of thousands of Cubans traveled to the Soviet bloc as diplomats, artists and students.
"For most of them it was the first time they ever left this island. They have nostalgia about their time there, about the flavors they experienced for the first time," said Gregory Biniowsky, a 45-year-old Canadian of Ukrainian descent who dreamed up Nazdarovie and launched it with three Cuban partners.
"The idea with Nazdarovie is really to celebrate a unique social and cultural link that existed and to a certain degree still exists today between Cuba of 2014 and what was once the Soviet Union," said Biniowsky, a lawyer and consultant who has lived in Havana for two decades.
The collapse of the Soviet bloc largely ended the Havana-Moscow connection and sent Cuba into an economic tailspin. However, Russian President Vladimir Putin has talked recently of renewing the relationship. He made a state visit last month, Russian navy ships periodically dock in Havana's harbor and Cuba has backed Russia in its dispute over Ukraine.
Occupying the third story of a historic building on the seafront Malecon boulevard, Nazdarovie is an homage to the old country.
Behind the bar, Russian nesting dolls and a bust of Lenin perch next to bottles of high-end vodka. Reproductions of Soviet propaganda posters line one wall in an attempt to spark conversation among customers sitting at a long communal table. About the only sign of the tropics is the million-dollar terrace view of Havana's skyline and the Straits of Florida.
At a pre-launch dress rehearsal, smartly dressed young waiters set steaming bowls of solyanka, a meaty Russian soup, before about 20 invited guests.
The evening's menu also included pelmeni, dumplings filled with meat, sour cream and dill; golubtsy, stuffed cabbage rolls slow-cooked in a tomato sauce; pork Stroganoff (beef is often scarce in Cuba); and for dessert, savory-sweet blintzes, called "blinchiki" in Russian.
Biniowsky said most of the ingredients can be found on the island, with some exceptions such as flour for black bread, and caviar, for which they'll rely on tins imported in the personal luggage of friends and family. It will go for about $15 an ounce, with fancier and pricier varieties available for special occasions.
In the air-conditioned kitchen, Irina Butorina stirred gobs of mayonnaise with potatoes, eggs, ham and peas to create an olivier salad, a popular dish in former Soviet states that, according to legend, was invented by a Belgian- or French-Russian chef named Lucien Olivier.
Butorina, 56, fell in love with a Cuban student she met at university in her native Kyrgyz Soviet Socialist Republic, now Kyrgyzstan, and moved here in 1984. She said the taste of her mother's recipes faded as she adapted to Cuba.
"At first I used to cook a lot of Russian food here, but then a lot of things disappeared from the market — cabbage, for example. ... so then I make Cuban food," she said. "But these people here have started this restaurant. It was their dream ... and our dream as well."
Experts say Butorina's story is typical of the Soviet diaspora here: Of the estimated 3,000-4,000 islanders who were born in the Soviet Union or descended from them, most are cases of Soviet women who married Cuban university students and moved to the Caribbean nation.
Some were divorced or widowed but remain in Cuba decades later with little or no tie to their homelands.
"I think for many it was a truly traumatic experience because there are many of our women who have not traveled, who have not returned to visit their countries after the Soviet Union disintegrated," said Dmitri Prieto-Samsonov, an anthropologist who studies the Soviet diaspora in Cuba.
At Nazdarovie, one poster in particular stands out amid the current crisis between Moscow and Kiev. Created under Nikita Khrushchev to commemorate the 300th anniversary of the reunification of Russia and Ukraine, it shows two runners representing the Soviet republics simultaneously breaking the tape at a finish line. "To the indestructible friendship and to new successes in sports," the slogan reads.
"That poster could seem like a joke, almost black humor," said Prieto-Samsonov, who was born to a Russian mother and a Cuban father and spent his first 13 years in Russia.
"I wish (the conflict) weren't happening between our countries," he added. "We have great desires for peace."
Biniowsky said Nazdarovie seeks to transcend politics and build community: People of Russian and Ukrainian descent and others working, cooking and eating side by side, united by the shared memory of a vanished nation-state rather than divided by current animosities.
"Not in the kind of naive utopian sense, but sometimes breaking bread and getting drunk on vodka is key to peace."

HAVANA — In a former life they were the "comandante's" cars: A fleet of black, boxy, Soviet-made limousines that for years were at the disposal of the presidency in Fidel Castro's Cuba.
Today the limos have been decommissioned and repurposed as Havana taxi cabs, at the service of tourists who want a little slice of history to go with their ride across town.
"When I tell (travelers) where the car came from, they sit in the seat back there and ... stretch their legs and say, 'I can't believe it!'" said Moises Suarez, 58, who has been behind the wheel of one of the ex-presidential limos for the last three years.
The luxury automobiles were produced by Russian manufacturers GAZ and ZIL in the 1960s and '70s. Those sent to Cuba reportedly included a ZIL-111 convertible model that was the first of its kind to roll off the assembly line, a personal gift to Castro from Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev.
They were often used to ferry around visiting dignitaries. At least one of the limos was used occasionally by Castro himself, though he usually preferred a military-style jeep for his own transportation needs.
When former U.S. President Jimmy Carter paid a historic visit in 2002, Castro — who always had a flair for stagemanship — picked him up at the airport in a Soviet stretch despite the fact that by that time the presidency had acquired a fleet of slick Mercedes Benzes.
Suarez, who drives for state-owned Cubataxi, said about 14 of the cars passed into the hands of the company about five years ago, and 10 are still on the road.
Many aspects of his GAZ-built Chaika — Russian for "seagull" — are original, from the camel-colored headliner to the radio with its buttons and knobs labeled in Cyrillic lettering. At some point a Mercedes engine was swapped in, however, similar to all the 1950s Detroit classics in Havana that are still running thanks to makeshift monkeywrenching.
On the driver's-side door, Suarez has affixed a small sign that says "Smile, Jesus loves you" — a small irony for a country that was officially atheist for decades under Castro (the policy was removed from the constitution in the 1990s).
The limo seats six passengers in relative comfort. But despite the extra leg room, it can hardly be considered a luxury ride anymore.
The faux wooden inlay is chipped and peeling, and the faded, brown-floral upholstery emits a smell best described as musty with perhaps a hint of stale cigar.
Still, it's a novel way to cruise down the seaside Malecon boulevard or through Revolution Plaza, where a massive sculpture of Argentine-born revolutionary leader Ernesto "Che" Guevara gazes stone-faced from the side of a building.
Suarez said fares are negotiable, from just a few bucks for a quick trip to $100-$140 for an all-day road trip outside the capital.
On a recent morning, a group of Spanish tourists took turns having their photo taken next to and inside the car as it sat parked beneath the massive, pyramidal monument honoring Cuban independence hero Jose Marti.
"It's exciting to be able to get inside a historic piece of Cuba," said Miquel Torres, who was visiting from Barcelona. "It's a very different kind of car."
As Suarez drives through the city, heads turn constantly. Not only tourists but also Cubans, who instantly recognize it as one of Fidel's fleet.
"A lot of drivers pull up next to me at stoplights," Suarez said. "They start laughing and they say, 'You never imagined you would be driving the comandante's car, eh?' 'You have a great car in your hands."

"EN TIEMPOS DIFÍCILES" - Heberto Padilla

A aquel hombre le pidieron su tiempo

para que lo juntara al tiempo de la Historia.

Le pidieron las manos,

porque para una época difícil

nada hay mejor que un par de buenas manos.

Le pidieron los ojos

que alguna vez tuvieron lágrimas

para que contemplara el lado claro

(especialmente el lado claro de la vida)

porque para el horror basta un ojo de asombro.

Le pidieron sus labios

resecos y cuarteados para afirmar,

para erigir, con cada afirmación, un sueño

(el-alto-sueño);

le pidieron las piernas

duras y nudosas

(sus viejas piernas andariegas),

porque en tiempos difíciles

¿algo hay mejor que un par de piernas

para la construcción o la trinchera?

Le pidieron el bosque que lo nutrió de niño,

con su árbol obediente.

Le pidieron el pecho, el corazón, los hombros.

Le dijeron

que eso era estrictamente necesario.

Le explicaron después

que toda esta donación resultaria inútil.

sin entregar la lengua,

porque en tiempos difíciles

nada es tan útil para atajar el odio o la mentira.

Y finalmente le rogaron

que, por favor, echase a andar,

porque en tiempos difíciles

esta es, sin duda, la prueba decisiva.

Los Aldeanos: "El Socialismo en Tiempos del Colera: Toda Una Nación"

Carta desde la carcel de Fidel Castro Ruz

“…después de todo, para mí la cárcel es un buen descanso, que sólo tiene de malo el que es obligatorio. Leo mucho y estudio mucho. Parece increíble, las horas pasan como si fuesen minutos y yo, que soy de temperamento intranquilo, me paso el día leyendo, apenas sin moverme para nada. La correspondencia llega normalmente…”

“…Como soy cocinero, de vez en cuando me entretengo preparando algún pisto. Hace poco me mandó mi hermana desde Oriente un pequeño jamón y preparé un bisté con jalea de guayaba. También preparo spaghettis de vez en cuando, de distintas formas, inventadas todas por mí; o bien tortilla de queso. ¡Ah! ¡Qué bien me quedan! por supuesto, que el repertorio no se queda ahí. Cuelo también café que me queda muy sabroso”.
“…En cuanto a fumar, en estos días pasados he estado rico: una caja de tabacos H. Upman del doctor Miró Cardona, dos cajas muy buenas de mi hermano Ramón….”.
“Me voy a cenar: spaghettis con calamares, bombones italianos de postre, café acabadito de colar y después un H. Upman #4. ¿No me envidias?”.
“…Me cuidan, me cuidan un poquito entre todos. No le hacen caso a uno, siempre estoy peleando para que no me manden nada. Cuando cojo el sol por la mañana en shorts y siento el aire de mar, me parece que estoy en una playa… ¡Me van a hacer creer que estoy de vacaciones! ¿Qué diría Carlos Marx de semejantes revolucionarios?”.
¨La patria es dicha de todos, y dolor de todos, y cielo para todos, y no feudo ni capellaní­a de nadie¨ - Marti

Liborio

Liborio
A la puerta de la gloria está San Pedro sentado y ve llegar a su lado a un hombre de cierta historia. No consigue hacer memoria y le pregunta con celo: ¿Quién eras allá en el suelo? Era Liborio mi nombre. Has sufrido mucho, hombre, entra, te has ganado el cielo.

Cuando vinieron

Cuando vinieron a buscar a los comunistas, Callé: yo no soy comunista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los sindicalistas, Callé: yo no soy sindicalista.
Cuando vinieron a buscar a los judíos, Callé: yo no soy judío. Cuando vinieron a buscar a los católicos, Callé: yo no soy “tan católico”.
Cuando vinieron a buscarme a mí, Callé: no había quien me escuchara.

Un sitio donde los hechos y sus huellas nos conmueven o cautivan

CUBA LLORA Y EL MUNDO Y NOSOTROS NO ESCUCHAMOS

Donde esta el Mundo, donde los Democratas, donde los Liberales? El pueblo de Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan los Green, los Socialdemocratas, los Ricos y los Pobres, los Con Voz y Sin Voz? Cuba llora y nadie escucha.
Donde estan el Jet Set, los Reyes y Principes, Patricios y Plebeyos? Cuba desesperada clama por solidaridad.
Donde Bob Dylan, donde Martin Luther King, donde Hollywood y sus estrellas? Donde la Middle Class democrata y conservadora, o acaso tambien liberal a ratos? Y Gandhi? Y el Dios de Todos?
Donde los Santos y Virgenes; los Dioses de Cristianos, Protestantes, Musulmanes, Budistas, Testigos de Jehova y Adventistas del Septimo Dia. Donde estan Ochun y todas las deidades del Panteon Yoruba que no acuden a nuestro llanto? Donde Juan Pablo II que no exige mas que Cuba se abra al Mundo y que el Mundo se abra a Cuba?
Que hacen ahora mismo Alberto de Monaco y el Principe Felipe que no los escuchamos? Donde Madonna, donde Angelina Jolie y sus adoptados around de world; o nos hara falta un Brando erguido en un Oscar por Cuba? Donde Sean Penn?
Donde esta la Aristocracia Obrera y los Obreros menos Aristocraticos, donde los Working Class que no estan junto a un pueblo que lanquidece, sufre y llora por la ignominia?
Que hacen ahora mismo Zapatero y Rajoy que no los escuchamos, y Harper y Dion, e Hillary y Obama; donde McCain que no los escuchamos? Y los muertos? Y los que estan muriendo? Y los que van a morir? Y los que se lanzan desesperados al mar?
Donde estan el minero cantabrico o el pescador de percebes gijonese? Los Canarios donde estan? A los africanos no los oimos, y a los australianos con su acento de hombres duros tampoco. Y aquellos chinos milenarios de Canton que fundaron raices eternas en la Isla? Y que de la Queen Elizabeth y los Lords y Gentlemen? Que hace ahora mismo el combativo Principe Harry que no lo escuchamos?
Donde los Rockefellers? Donde los Duponts? Donde Kate Moss? Donde el Presidente de la ONU? Y Solana donde esta? Y los Generales y Doctores? Y los Lam y los Fabelo, y los Sivio y los Fito Paez?
Y que de Canseco y Miñoso? Y de los veteranos de Bahia de Cochinos y de los balseros y de los recien llegados? Y Carlos Otero y Susana Perez? Y el Bola, y Pancho Cespedes? Y YO y TU?
Y todos nosotros que estamos aqui y alla rumiando frustaciones y resquemores, envidias y sinsabores; autoelogios y nostalgias, en tanto Louis Michel comulga con Perez Roque mientras Biscet y una NACION lanquidecen?
Donde Maceo, donde Marti; donde aquel Villena con su carga para matar bribones?
Cuba llora y clama y el Mundo NO ESCUCHA!!!
