Blessed, but not Saved

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.

How do we do that?

What happens when an artist tries to understand a politician? Famous film-maker Spike Lee interviews Senator Bernie Sanders to discuss Donald Trump victory, what the Democrats did wrong, and how the US is going to survive 2017.

Spike Lee: Let me ask you another question. How can you tell another country that they’ve got to pay for a wall? Or fences? How does that work?

Following Obama's open policy and the recent death of Fidel Castro, there should be a new chance to reduce tensions between the US and China. But it doesn't look lite it. Raúl Castro’s plans to secure the legacy of his brother’s 1959 Cuban Revolution appear to be contradictory with the incoming Trump administration, whose top members said Sunday that Cuba would have to make significant “changes” in order for the normalization path charted by President Obama to continue. Both Castros have long insisted they would never kneel to American pressure.

Last week, marijuana stocks in Canada skyrocketed suddenly, despite evident indications that the government plans to go slow in its promise to legalize recreational marijuana use (scheduled for next Spring). The increases may have gotten a boost from pot legalization votes in four U.S. states, Colorado and Oregon. In Canada, marijuana comes under federal jurisdiction, unlike in the United States, where regulation is shared by the states and federal government.

The Holiday Season has arrived and many people get stressed when it comes to decide how much to spend on presents. The Internet is full of guidelines to help you not to collapse, mentally and economically. EFE/ERIK S. LESSER

Time for shopping is around the corner, but you don’t need to bankrupt to show off how generous you are. This accurate guideline made by etiquette experts on how much to spend on holiday gifts based on who you are shopping for will help you: Siblings and cousins: $20 and up; Nieces and nephews: $25 and up (what about asking the parents about making a contribution to the child’s college fund?). Ups. Sorry for your close friends and coworkers: assign $15, for them; while for your  in-laws: $20 and up.

Kill the Hipster in you. Forget about your Hipster bars, your Hipster clothes, your hipster way of life. “Hygge” ,  Danish for coziness and good spirits, has been listed as a “word of the year” by both the Collins and Oxford dictionaries – alongside Brexit and Trumpism – in the lexicographers’ annual public-relations exercise. Christmas markets, wool socks, friendly hugs. Hygge is, then, a retreat, an escape, a turning-inwards.

Estos son los primeros restos en ser identificados en el país que vivió bajo la dictadura del general Alfredo Stroeesner entre 1954 y 1989. Hoy en día siguen habiendo centenares de desaparecidos.

Cientos de personas están dispuestas a marchar este sábado en Washington D.C. en protesta a la inauguración del Presidente Electo Donald J. Trump.

Entre las múltiples organizaciones que han confirmado su participación, la Marcha de Mujeres es una de las más representativas del momento. Con la aparición de Linda Sarsour y Carmen Perez en el CNN Newsroom, la manifestación de mujeres en contra del que pareciera ser el presidente más misógino de la historia de los Estados Unidos, cobra fuerza.
