Google Ventures' Bill Maris Investing in Idea of Living to 500

Bloomberg Business
Bill Maris has $425 million to invest this year, and the freedom to invest it however he wants. He's looking for companies that will slow aging, reverse disease, and extend life. 

Maris' interview:
  • Google Ventures' Bill Maris said he thinks humans can live to 500 years old
  • This will be due to medical breakthroughs and a rise in biomechanics
  • Google's director of engineering Ray Kurzweil previously said we'd be uploading our brains to machines by 2045
  • Google Ventures has invested in genetics firms and cancer startups
  • Tech giant also set up Calico - anti-ageing research and development labs
  • Mr Maris said: 'We have the tools to achieve anything that you have the audacity to envision. I just hope to live long enough not to die'
  • But professor Sir Colin Blakemore believes there's a limit on human life
  • Neurobiologist believes 120 years ‘might be an absolute to human lifespan’
  • This is because living for longer is ‘so rarely exceeded’ that even with medical advances, it is unlikely this threshold will be raised

Questions About Putin’s Health After Canceled Meetings & Vague Answers

A ceremony to sign a treaty of integration between Russia and South Ossetia  scheduled for today March 11 was cancelled, RBC.ru reported, causing further speculation about the state of health of President Vladimir Putin.
The ceremony was to essentially formally annex South Ossetia, a breakaway territory from Georgia which Russia took over after the 2008 war with Georgia. A delegation had already arrived for the meeting from the capital of Tskhinvali, by24.org reported.
This was the second cancellation of a meeting on a priority issue for Putin; the first was the summit of the Eurasian Customs Union in Astana, Kazakhstan, which has now been postponed "for a few days," says sources in Kazakhstan, according to a Reuters report.
But Nezavisimaya Gazeta says that the reason the South Ossetia ceremony was cancelled was because the agreement was not sufficiently prepared. A vote of confidence was put on the agenda of the South Ossetia parliament regarding David Sanakoyev, head of the republic, who had published the draft agreement in the local press on his own initiative without the consent of the leadership. So there may have been valid reasons to halt the signing -- but it seems odd that it got as far as it did, with the participants already in Moscow.
Concern has been raised that two meetings that the official web site kremlin.ru said took place this week, with governors from Karelia and Yamal-Yenets, actually took place last week, and were only published this week. Sources say Aleksandr Khudilaynen, the governor of Karelia actually met with Putin last week, and Dmitry Kobylkin, governor of Yamal-Yenets was not in Moscow on March 10.
In the absence of any solid information, news broadcasts said to be made of Putin March 10 and March 11 are being closely examined. Do the calendars in the meetings with Kobylkin and Khudilaynen show single digits, indicating the filming was done last week?
Or is this not a calendar, but perhaps a stand with an inspirational quote?

Meanwhile, without confirmation of Putin's condition, and concern that meetings at the Kremlin reported this week in fact took place last week, Russkiy Monitor has gone ahead and published an email received by the editorial office claiming that Putin  had a stroke.

'Ghost Boy': The Story of a Young Man Trapped in His Body

By Alexa Keyes, Kate Snow and Wonbo Woo
It was 1988, and Martin Pistorius was a healthy 12-year-old boy growing up in South Africa when his life took an unexpected turn. Pistorius went home from school with a sore throat, and he never returned.
His body gradually weakened. He lost the ability to walk, to eat on his own and eventually, the ability to communicate. Doctors suspected some kind of neurodegenerative disease, but his case was a medical mystery. Martin's parents say doctors told them their son now had the intelligence of a three-month-old, and that they should take him home to die.
The last words he ever spoke: "When home?" 
But Pistorius didn't die. He spent more than a decade at home and in day-care centers. His parents were told he was unaware of the world around him, but about four years after he fell ill, Pistorius says he began to "wake up."
"For so many years, I was like a ghost. I could hear and see everything, but it was like I wasn't there. I was invisible," Pistorius told NBC News' Kate Snow with the help of a device that speaks the words he types into a computer.
"What really got to me was the complete and utter powerlessness," Pistorius said. "Every single aspect of your life is controlled and determined by someone else. They decide where you are, what you eat, whether you sit or lie down, in what position you lie in, everything."
Day after day, year after year, Pistorius was trapped in a body that wouldn't move, left with nothing but his own thoughts.
"I would literally live in my imagination," he said. "Sometimes to such an extent that I became almost oblivious to my surroundings." 
His family struggled to come to terms with his illness. One night, after his parents argued, his mother turned to her son and said, "I hope you die." She didn't think her son was there to hear it, but he was.
"It broke my heart, in a way," Pistorius said. "But at the same time, particularly as I worked through all the emotions. I felt only love and compassion for my mother."
But in 2001, there was new hope. A therapist at Pistorius' care center, Virna Van Der Walt, began to pick up on tiny signals that made her realize he was more aware than people thought.
"He had a sparkle in his eye, I could see he was understanding me," Van Der Walt wrote to NBC News' Kate Snow.
She urged his parents to take him for cognitive testing, and for the first time, Pistorius was able to show people that he understood.
"She was the catalyst who changed everything," Pistorius said. "Had it not been for her, I would probably either be dead or forgotten in a care home somewhere."
As his mind grew stronger, so did his body. Pistorius was given special equipment he could use to communicate, which, he says, changed everything.
"I don't think I will ever forget that feeling when my mom asked me what I'd like for supper and I said, 'Spaghetti Bolognese,' and then she actually made that," he said. "I know that must seem insignificant, but for me, that was amazing."
Pistorius had to relearn everything - from reading and socializing to making decisions for himself. He went to college, learned to drive, and even feel in love.
He married Joanna, who he met through his sister, in 2009, and they are hoping to start a family.
"It took a massive amount of work, blood, sweat and tears," he said. "But I am a different person today that I was 13 years ago."
Today, Pistorius works as a web designer. His story captured in an autobiography, "Ghost Boy," is on The New York Times best-seller list.
He's grateful for the little things, like being able to have a conversation or experiencing something for the first time. 
His message - don't overlook what's possible.
"Never underestimate the power of the mind, the importance of love and faith, and never stop dreaming," Pistorius said, adding one more piece of advice:
"Treat everyone with kindness, dignity, compassion and respect, irrespective of whether you think they understand or not."

Una calcomanía que mide la glucosa en sangre de forma indolora

En Mashable, The Atlantic, Engineers create a temporary tattoo that tests blood sugar,
Medir los niveles de glucosa varias veces al día es vital para los pacientes con diabetes, para saber cuál es su estado y la dosis de insulina necesaria, si acaso hace falta inyectarla. Pero a quienes no les gustan las agujas tienden a evitar hacer esa prueba, lo que les pone en riesgo de desarrollar complicaciones médicas relacionadas con la enfermedad. El dispositivo es indoloro —consiste en electrodos impresos en papel tipo calcomanía que los pacientes pueden quitarse una vez tomada la medida, o dejárselo puesto durante todo el día. El coste de cada adhesivo es realmente bajo, de unos pocos céntimos, por lo que su uso no resulta muy caro para los pacientes.

Assisted Suicide 'Out of Control' in Netherlands


The number of mentally ill people who have been killed through euthanasia in the Netherlands has trebled in a single year, according to new figures.

The Daily Mail reports that in 2012, 14 people with "severe psychiatric problems" were killed by lethal injection, a figure that rose to 42 in 2013.
There had also been a 15 percent overall rise in assisted dying over the past year, with the number of cases increasing from 4,188 to 4,829.
Deaths from euthanasia have risen by a total of 151 percent in a period of just seven years, with most cases involving cancer sufferers. However, there were also 97 people who were killed by their doctors because they had dementia.
The figures do not include "terminal sedation", where the patient is sedated and then has food and fluids withdrawn. If they did, however, euthanasia would account for one in eight of all deaths in the Netherlands.
Dr Peter Saunders of the Christian Medical Fellowship told the Daily Mail that euthanasia in the Netherlands is "way out of control", saying that it proves that assisted dying is impossible to regulate.
"The House of Lords calculated in 2005 that with a Dutch-type law in Britain we would be seeing over 13,000 cases of euthanasia per year," he added.
"On the basis of how Dutch euthanasia deaths have risen since this may prove to be a gross underestimate.
"What we are seeing in the Netherlands is 'incremental extension', the steady intentional escalation of numbers with a gradual widening of the categories of patients to be included.
"The lessons are clear. Once you relax the law on euthanasia or assisted suicide steady extension will follow as night follows day."
In Britain, a bill that would legalise assisted dying received its second reading in the House of Lords in July and will continue to the next legislative stage in November.
Earlier this year, Dutch regulator Theo Boer told the British Parliament "Don't go there" when asked about the British proposals.

Pablo Milanés se realiza un trasplante de riñón en Galicia y no en Cuba

pablito quien ya en el 2012 habia escogido la clínica Rúber Internacional de madrid para una simple cirugia de una energia umbilical, tiene bien claro que su salud no la pone en manos ni siquiera del "elitista" cimeq de la nomenklatura cubana, para no decir el calixto garcia o la sala 8 del hospital militar. hombre de exito este pablito que ademas se puede pagar tales servicios.
El cantautor cubano Pablo Milanés se habría sometido a un trasplante de riñón en un hospital de la comunidad autónoma española de Galicia, según reportaron medios de prensa locales.
El diario La Opinión, que no mencionó las fuentes de su información, dijo que Milanés fue intervenido en el Complexo Hospitalario Universitario de A Coruña, que realiza ocho de cada diez trasplantes en Galicia.
Por su parte, La Voz de Galicia dijo que el cantautor, de 71 años, se recupera satisfactoriamente.
Esta publicación citó fuentes cercanas a Milanés y a su esposa, la historiadora gallega Nancy Pérez.
Indicó que fue precisamente Pérez quien donó el riñón al músico.
El hospital rechazó confirmar o desmentir las informaciones, según La Voz de Galicia.

3-D Printed Hand Lets Haitian Boy Play Catch for First Time

NBC News.com
A 12-year-old boy born without fingers has become Haiti's first recipient of a 3-D printed prosthesis, enabling him to play catch with his friends for the first time.
Stevenson Joseph, who has lived at an orphanage since he was abandoned at the age of 3, had little hope of treatment in a country where programs for the disabled are rare.
But after he met John Marshall, a software engineer on a mission trip to Haiti for Florida-based Food for the Poor, his prospects changed. After months of work to perfect the design, a 3-D prosthesis was fitted to his left hand last month.
"It is a great hand," Stevenson says, ticking off his list of accomplishments. "Now I can take a balloon with it. I can score at basketball. I can hold a TV remote and push my friends on their wheelchairs. I can hold a water bottle, a bag. I like it a lot."

Rare Birth Defects Still Spiking in Washington State

Image: Baby receives treatment for spina bifida 
James Cheng / for NBC News
Olivia Jackman of Ellensburg, Wash., was born with spina bifida last fall and is considered part of a cluster of neural tube defects in the area that includes the fatal defect, anencephaly.

Seven cases of a rare fatal birth defect were reported in a remote region of Washington state in 2013, making it the fourth consecutive year that rates have more than tripled the national average, health officials said Tuesday.
There’s still no clear reason for the spike in anencephaly, a severe defect in which babies are born missing parts of the brain or skull, according to a statement from Washington state health officials. NBC News investigated the issue in February.
The rate jumped to 8.7 cases per 10,000 births in the area that includes Yakima, Benton and Franklin counties in eastern Washington state, far exceeding the national anencephaly rate of 2.1 cases per 10,000 births.
State officials, working in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, say they plan to convene an advisory committee to review options for investigation and prevention — and they’ll hold “listening sessions” in the community to hear more about public concerns about problems in the region.
That hardly seems like enough, said one mother whose baby was born with spina bifida last year and was considered part of a cluster of cases of neural tube defects in the region.
“It’s good that they want to know everybody’s thoughts, but what are they doing about it?” said Andrea Jackman, 30, who lived in an orchard in Yakima, Wash., while she was pregnant but now lives in Ellensburg. Her daughter, Olivia, is 7 months old.
“Why are they going to put the time and money into chatting with people who don’t know? Do the research.”
The new count follows a report last summer that found more than two dozen cases of babies born with anencephaly and other neural tube defects in the region between 2010 and 2013.
Medical records indicate low rates of folic acid vitamin supplementation in the region, which has been linked to anencephaly. Other studies have shown ties between the defect and exposure to molds and pesticides. Critics have said state and federal officials need to do detailed interviews and a thorough investigation of the eastern Washington cluster.
Many local residents are convinced that leaking tanks of nuclear waste from the region’s nearby Hanford nuclear plant must be to blame, but Dr. Edith Cheng, a University Washington Medicine expert on birth defects, said there has not been a good evaluation of the plant’s impact on anencephaly or other problems.
Experts emphasize the need for all women of childbearing age to take folic acid supplements.

The next frontier in 3-D printing: Human organs


The emerging process of 3-D printing, which uses computer-created digital models to create real-world objects, has produced everything from toys to jewelry to food.
Soon, however, 3-D printers may be spitting out something far more complex, and controversial: human organs.
For years now, medical researchers have been reproducing human cells in laboratories by hand to create blood vessels, urine tubes, skin tissue and other living body parts. But engineering full organs, with their complicated cell structures, is much more difficult.
Enter 3-D printers, which because of their precise process can reproduce the vascular systems required to make organs viable. Scientists are already using the machines to print tiny strips of organ tissue. And while printing whole human organs for surgical transplants is still years away, the technology is rapidly developing.
"The mechanical process isn't all that complicated. The tricky part is the materials, which are biological in nature," said Mike Titsch, editor-in-chief of 3D Printer World, which covers the industry. "It isn't like 3-D printing plastic or metal. Plastic doesn't die if you leave it sitting on an open-air shelf at room temperature for too long."

The idea of printing a human kidney or liver in a lab may seem incomprehensible, even creepy. But to many scientists in the field, bioprinting holds great promise. Authentic printed organs could be used for drug or vaccine testing, freeing researchers from less accurate methods such as tests on animals or on synthetic models.
Then there's the hope that 3-D printers could someday produce much-needed organs for transplants. Americans are living longer, and as we get deeper into old age our organs are failing more. Some 18 people die in the United States each day waiting in vain for transplants because of a shortage of donated organs -- a problem that Anthony Atala, director of the Wake Forest Institute for Regenerative Medicine and a pioneer in bioprinting, calls "a major health crisis."
An 'exciting new area of medicine'
Bioprinting works like this: Scientists harvest human cells from biopsies or stem cells, then allow them to multiply in a petri dish. The resulting mixture, a sort of biological ink, is fed into a 3-D printer, which is programmed to arrange different cell types, along with other materials, into a precise three-dimensional shape. Doctors hope that when placed in the body, these 3-D-printed cells will integrate with existing tissues.
The process already is seeing some success. Last year a 2-year-old girl in Illinois, born without a trachea, received a windpipe built with her own stem cells. The U.S. government has funded a university-led "body on a chip" project that prints tissue samples that mimic the functions of the heart, liver, lungs and other organs. The samples are placed on a microchip and connected with a blood substitute to keep the cells alive, allowing doctors to test specific treatments and monitor their effectiveness.
"This is an exciting new area of medicine. It has the potential for being a very important breakthrough," said Dr. Jorge Rakela, a gastroenterologist at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix and a member of the American Liver Foundation's medical advisory committee.

"Three-D printing allows you to be closer to what is happening in real life, where you have multiple layers of cells," he said. With current 2-D models, "if you grow more than one or two layers, the cells at the bottom suffocate from lack of oxygen."
To accelerate the development of bioprinted organs, a Virginia foundation that supports regenerative medicine research announced in December it will award a $1 million prize for the first organization to print a fully functioning liver.
One early contender for the prize is Organovo, a California start-up that has been a leader in bioprinting human body parts for commercial purposes. Using cells from donated tissue or stem cells, Organovo is developing what it hopes will be authentic models of human organs, primarily livers, for drug testing.
The company has printed strips of human liver tissue in its labs, although they are still very small: four by four by one millimeter, or about one-fourth the size of a dime. Each strip takes about 45 minutes to print, and it takes another two days for the cells to grow and mature, said Organovo CEO Keith Murphy. The models can then survive for about 40 days.
Organovo has also built models of human kidneys, bone, cartilage, muscle, blood vessels and lung tissue, he said.
"Basically what it allows you to do is build tissue the way you assemble something with Legos," Murphy said. "So you can put the right cells in the right places. You can't just pour them into a mold."
Ethical concerns
Not everyone is comfortable with this bold new future of lab-built body parts, however.
A research director at Gartner Inc., the information-technology research and advisory firm, believes 3-D bioprinting is advancing so quickly that it will spark a major ethical debate by 2016.
A 3-D printer at Cornell University produces an artificial ear.
A 3-D printer at Cornell University produces an artificial ear.
"Three-D bioprinting facilities with the ability to print human organs and tissue will advance far faster than general understanding and acceptance of the ramifications of this technology," Pete Basiliere said in a recent report.
"These initiatives are well-intentioned, but raise a number of questions that remain unanswered," Basiliere added. "What happens when complex 'enhanced' organs involving nonhuman cells are made? Who will control the ability to produce them? Who will ensure the quality of the resulting organs?"
Bioprinted organs are also likely to be expensive, which could put them out of reach of all but the wealthiest patients.
Murphy said Organovo only uses human cells in creating tissues, and doesn't see any ethical problems with what his company is doing.
"People used to worry about doing research on cadavers ... and that dissipated very quickly," he said. "We don't think there's any controversy if you're producing good data and helping people with health conditions."
Most experts, including Wake Forest's Atala, don't think we'll see complex 3-D-printed organs, suitable for transplants, for years if not decades. Instead, they believe the next step will be printing strips of tissue, or patches, that could be used to repair livers and other damaged organs.
Organovo\'s NovoGen MMX bioprinter is small enough to fit into a cabinet.
Organovo's NovoGen MMX bioprinter is small enough to fit into a cabinet.
"We are very eager to put pieces of tissue to work for surgical transplants," said Organovo's Murphy, who hopes his company will be ready to begin clinical trials within five years.
Of course, any use of 3-D-printed tissue in surgical procedures would require approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. That review process could take up to a decade.
By then, the notion of a surgeon putting a 3-D-printed kidney into a patient may not seem so bizarre. Then again, this swiftly evolving technology may create new moral conundrums.
"The ethical questions are bound to be the same concerns we have seen in the past. Many major medical breakthroughs have suffered moral resistance, from organ transplants to stem cells," said Titsch of 3D Printer World.
"Will only the rich be able to afford it? Are we playing God? In the end, saving lives tends to trump all objections."

Aroldis Chapman se recupera tras operación de cráneo

Chapman en el hospital este viernes/ Instagram.
Por Eric Reynoso
El estelar lanzador cubano Aroldis Chapman se recupera exitosamente de la operación de cráneo a la que fue sometido el pasado jueves para repararle una peligrosa  fractura en el arco superciliar izquierdo.
Chapman, de 26 años, está de buen ánimo y hasta se ha permitido colgar en Instagram una foto que muestra su cabeza con los puntos de la cirugía practicada, luego que un lineazo bateado por un jugador rival le impactara en la cara, la noche del pasado miércoles en Arizona.
“Mis fanáticos, todo está bien… Gracias a Dios ya estamos fuera de cualquier tipo de problema . Estoy aquí esperando que me den mi liberación”, escribió Chapman en un mensaje a sus seguidores en la red social.
Al lanzador se le insertó una placa de metal en el cráneo, la cual quedará incrustada allí de manera permanente, El impacto de la pelota le produjo una fractura craneal y una conmoción cerebral moderada, pero sus lesiones no dejaron secuelas mayores.
Por el momento está sometido a fuertes dosis de calmantes para evitar el dolor.
Pudo ser peor
Los médicos estiman que el pelotero podría ser dado de alta este sábado del hospital de Phoenix donde permanece ingresado.
Lo cierto es que las cosas le van saliendo demasiado bien para la tragedia que pudo haber sido. Si la pelota le hubiera impactado otra zona menos protegida del cráneo, en un área superior o a un costado de la cabeza, las consecuencias serían mucho peores y el pronóstico no desbordara tanto optimismo.
La pelota golpeó a Chapman en una de las zonas más protegidas del cráneo, según el médico.
“Si te da en un costado de la cabeza, puede ser desastroso’’, comentó. “Pudo haber sido mucho peor, con más lesiones, lesiones permanentes. Tuvo mucha suerte’’
“Es un tipo con mucha suerte’’, dijo el doctor Tim Kremchek, médico del equipo de los Rojos de Cincinnati.
Pronóstico alentador
Kremchek adelantó que Chapman podrá volver a lanzar dentro de seis a ocho semanas, y su retorno como titular se calcula para finales de mayo, según el proceso de recuperación. En dos semanas intentaría hacer algunos lanzamientos y ejercicios livianos.
El caribeño, quien llegó a tirar la bola a 105 millas por hora, podría empezar a hacer tiros livianos en unas dos semanas.
Muy cerca de Chapman ha estado en las últimas horas su compatriota Brayan Peña, receptor de los Rojos y quien acudió de inmediato al montículo para auxiliarlo en el momento del accidente.
Peña pasó con Chapman parte de la noche del el miércoles en el hospital y habló con él por teléfono el jueves por la mañana. mientras se preparaba para la operación.
“Habló y bromeó mucho, contaba chistes cubanos. Eso es bueno porque quiere decir que recuperó la memoria’’, contó Peña a ESPN.
Fue un verdadero momento de desconcierto lo sucedido la noche del miércoles, cuando el catcher Salvador Pérez, de los Reales de Kansas City, soltó el lineazo que fue a estrellarse en el rostro de Chapman.
Una sustitución enyerbada
“Honestamente, me dieron ganas de llorar cuando vi como estaba… Fue algo que metía miedo. No hablaba. Solo se quejaba y hacía ruidos. Me asusté porque no sabía qué hacer’’, relató Peña.
A Chapman lo sacaron en camilla del terreno de juego y el partido quedó suspendido a la altura del sexto inning.
Por lo pronto, los Rojos están a la búsqueda del serpentinero que pueda suplir la vacante dejada por Chapman, que la pasada temporada salvó 38 partidos en 42 oportunidades, con promedio de efectividad de 2.54 y 112 ponches acumulados en  63.2  innings de actuación. Y la cosa parece enyerbada.
No será fácil para el mánager Bryan Price, pues el staff de lanzadores de los Rojos tiene lagunas que ahora se hacen más notables. Jonathan Broxton, quien ha cumplido funciones de cerrador en su carrera con los Dodgers y Kansas City, está retornando de una cirugía del antebrazo que se le practicó en agosto y apenas ha lanzado un inning en la pretemporada.
Otros nombres que se manejan son los de J. J. Hoover, Sam LeCure, Manny Parra and Logan Ondrusek. Es una incóngnita el zurdo Sean Marshall, imposibilitado de lanzar en los juegos de entrenamiento por dolores en el hombro, y Alfredo Simón, quien tuvo buena participación como relevista en el equipo el pasado año, tendrá que entrar en la rotación de abridores para remplazar al lesionado Mat Latos.

"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


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

NEOCASTRISMO [Hacer click en la imagen]
¨Saturno jugando con sus hijos¨/ Pedro Pablo Oliva


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?”.

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.

Para Raul Castro

Cuba ocupa el penultimo lugar en el mundo en libertad economica solo superada por Corea del Norte.

Cuba ocupa el lugar 147 entre 153 paises evaluados en "Democracia, Mercado y Transparencia 2007"

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.

Reverendo Martin Niemöller

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


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!!!
