The demonstrations by native Americans against the Dakota Access Pipeline will surely be remembered as a landmark in relations between Christianity – especially the Catholic church– and indigenous people. The Christian clergy have been attending the voice of protests of over 200 indigenous groups since the polemic Pipeline project begun. Catholic church is very engaged in this cause, given that Pope Francis called for a rapid switch away from fossil fuels in his environmental encyclical.

Barcelona authorities announced Thursday they had fined Airbnb and Homeaway 600,000 euros ($633,600) each for advertising and renting out apartments to tourists illegally.
Dreaming of an apartment in Florida near the beach for your retirement? Think it twice if you are considering to invest in real estate in the seaside. Constructions near the waterline are likely to suffer the effects of climate change and rising sea levels in the near future, especially in the Eastern coast of the US, vulnerable to floodings and hurricanes.
The Dakota Access Pipeline is almost completed, but protesters have not surrendered. Hundreds clashed with police this weekend to protest against the pipeline for its environmental impact and its invasion of ‘sacred’ territory of the Sioux in the banks of the Missouri River. Police is said to have deployed pepper spray, teargas, rubber bullets, Tasers, sound weapons, and other “less-than-lethal” weapons. The construction company, Energy Transfer Partners, still lacks a final permit to drill under the river.
Si hay algo en lo que los críticos y los fanáticos pueden estar de acuerdo es en que la comedia de Carlos Mencia no rehúye lo político, y esta política no es ni “correcta” ni endulzada, y nadie en la audiencia se escapa de ser sujeto de alguna broma. En una época donde se mantiene la paz siendo “políticamente correcto” (un movimiento esencialmente inclinado a atribuir atenciones deliberadas a un sinfín de individuos sensibles al lenguaje), Carlos Mencia no se ha visto tentado ni convencido todavía de diluir sus juegos verbales.
If there’s one thing that critics and fans alike can agree with, it is that Carlos Mencia’s comedy does not shy away from the political, and this politic is often neither “correct” nor sugarcoated, oftentimes leaving anybody in his audience vulnerable to being the pun of a joke. In an age of maintaining the peace by “keeping things PC” (essentially a movement towards attributing a purposeful attentiveness to a plethora of individual sensitivities via language), Carlos Mencia has not been tempted or convinced quite yet to euphemize his verbal shenanigans.
"Sé que no todos ustedes son rencorosos, sé que no todos los Repúblicanos son deplorables, sé que no todos los conservadores son aborrecibles, sé que no todos los hombres Blancos son odiosos, pero aquellos de ustedes que apoyaron a Trump se transformaron en facilitadores del odio."
"I know that not all of you are hateful. I know that not every registered Republican is hateful. I know that not every conservative thinker is hateful. I know that not every White person is hateful. However, those of you who supported Trump all became enablers of hate."
Llamémosla “La Bendita Pared."
Este fin de semana pasado tuvimos el privilegio de mirarla con nuestros propios ojos y, al final, no pudimos creer lo que veíamos.
“La Pared”, en la frontera entre México y los Estados Unidos, esa que vemos ocasionalmente en la televisión, o esa construida en la imaginación popular por políticos que hablan sin parar de ella, no tiene nada que ver con lo que se ve y se siente al llegar allí y no resistir la tentación de tocarla con tus propias manos.
