botas ugg baratas outlet Top 100 Companies in Colombia

Everybody knew 2009 would be a difficult year, especially since all companies expected to feel the effects of the global recession that started in 2008. And predictions came true. The Colombian economy grew 0.4 per cent in 2009, the lowest number in the last decade but, understanding the dimension of the crisis that rocked the planet, the country was well off. It could have been worse.

In a situation of falling demand, trembling trust from the consumers and uncertainty for the future of the global economy, Colombian companies held their own. However, it was difficult to grow due to the slowdown of the economy, which in turn had a negative impact on sales. 34 of the 100 biggest Colombian companies felt a decrease in their operational incomes when compared to 2008.

Few companies were able to escape the hurricane that shook the planet’s economy. Ecopetrol, Colombia’s biggest company, felt a blow in all its indicators. Sales were down 10 per cent while net profits decreased 56 per cent. The lower prices of oil around the world and the contraction in the world economy had a negative effect on their results, just like they did on the performance of other oil companies that operate in Colombia and that are also part of this ranking: BP, ExxonMobil, Petrobras and Occidental.

The Colombian enterprises felt the heat in other aspects as well: a fall in consumption, a decrease in exports and a pause in long term investments.

Even though it was a difficult year in which the companies struggled to maintain their sales, control their expenses and prevent a fall in their profits, some companies did their best and were able to weather the storm. In SEMANA’s ranking, very interesting movements, due to strategic decisions, can be observed. Two companies stand out: Colinversiones moved from spot 121 to 23 mainly because they decided to focus on the energy business. Pacific Rubiales also deserved an honorable mention: it is the first time it makes the list and it landed at number 38. Not bad for a newcomer. This oil company is here to stay: its share has had an outstanding behavior in the market and nobody doubts that this company will continue climbing the ladder in the years to come.

In this 2009’s ranking, EPM placed second and pushed Almacenes xito into the third spot. Nacional de Chocolates and Bavaria gained two spots each. A snapshot of the ranking could be summarized in few words: the companies with the biggest assets are Ecopetrol, EPM, Inversiones Argos, ISA, and Bavaria.

It is worth mentioning that this ranking does not include SaludCoop, an enterprise that ranked 18 in 2008, because it did not share its financial information this year.

In a tight economical year, employment was the greatest victim. Many companies were forced to downsize in order to reduce their costs. Luckily, this was not the case for Colombia. Some companies even decided to hire new staff. Among those who employ the biggest number of people, and who decided to keep the same number of people or hire more there are companies like Grupo Nacional de Chocolates, Almacenes xito, EPM, Postobón, Cementos Argos, Olímpica, Carrefour, Colsubsidio, Fabricato Tejicóndor y Cafam.

For the present year, prospects are good and expectation is high. The worst part of the financial crisis has already passed. Trust is returning to Colombia and the rest of the world, but it is not yet time to celebrate. This year’s GDP growth projections stand at 2.5 and 3.0 per cent indicate recovery will be slow.

Caccia al vice Klose. La riapertura delmercato di gennaio si avvicina e la Lazio ha ancora qualche nodo in sospeso da sciogliere. Non solo nel reparto difensivo, ma anche davanti. Il tedesco sta giocando una stagione straordinaria, matra campionato ed Europa League avr bisognodi avere undegno sostituto. Kozak non ha ancora convinto, Floccari la seconda scelta, Zarate non nelle grazie del mister e Rocchi poco sereno dopo le ultime esclusioni. Non un caso, infatti, se Tare durante l’estate appena passata ha tentato senza sosta di portare a Formello un centravanti, un bomber. C’era quasi riuscito con il turco Yilmaz, salvo subire poi la beffa dal presidente del Trazbonspor che, attraverso accordi e controaccordi, ha mandato in fumo l’affare. E allora, gennaio sar il mese per tornare alla carica. Anche perché qualcuno tra Zarate, Floccari e Rocchi potrebbe lasciare la Capitale. Spunta il prestigioso nome di Klaas Jan Huntelaar. La punta dello Schalke 04 e della nazionale olandese finita nella lista in uscita della societ tedesca (in agosto Tare ha lavorato sul mercato biancoceleste anche dalla Germania). I media, anche dalle parti dell’Inghilterra, danno per certo un interessamento. Il bomber costa 20 milioni di euro, ma il suo contratto scadrebbe alla fine della stagione calcistica 2013 e Tare, quando si tratta di operazioni a parametro zero, bravo a mettere il suo zampino. L’elemento su cui bisognerebbe lavorare , invece, l’ingaggio. L’olandese prende 4 milioni di euro l’anno allo Schalke e Lotito difficilmente gli concederebbe la stessa somma. certo, per, che il bomber ha il coltello dalla parte del manico, se non altro perché sulle sue tracce c’ anche il Bayer Monaco (qualche settimana fa aveva tentato un assalto anche la Fiorentina). Del resto, Huntelaar (29 anni) un centravanti che lo scorso anno ha segnato 48 gol tra Bundesliga e Coppe e quest’anno a 6 reti in undici partite. Non solo Huntelaar. Un vice Klose (oggi sar premiato dalla Federazione tedesca con una medaglia per il fairplay) potrebbe arrivare anche dalle parti dell’Inghilterra e risponderebbe al nome di Jermain Defoe. una recente conoscenza per la Lazio, che lo ha potuto testare sulla propria pelle durante la fase a gironi di Europa League. Defoe , infatti, la punta del Tottenham che avrebbe stregato Petkovic. Per arrivare al 30enne da dieci milioni di euro Lotito potrebbe anche offrire come contropartita Mauro Zarate, che non convince il tecnico e potrebbe essere tra i laziali in uscita a gennaio. Resterebbe in piedi anche l’interessamento per il norvegese dell’Hannover, Mohammed Abdellaoue. La Lazio si era avvicinata alla punta in estate, masenza successo.(corrieredellosport)

To the degree that she fails of scrutinising herself, is Mary Crawford not serious. Where morality is the issue, it isn sensuality that damns her, damns her brother and damns the Bertram sisters, but an incapacity for introspection. Julia lacks of her own heart Maria shuts her eyes while she looks and closes her understanding while she reasons; Henry Crawford is not in the of examining his own motives and even the grave Sir Thomas is little accustomed to serious reflection Serious reflection, note, is not to be confused with a sober demeanour.

Savea, Charles Piutau and Israel Dagg were integral to the way the All Blacks wanted to play the game, whereas Mike Brown, Chris Ashton and the out of position Ben Foden were scarcely less peripheral to England than the outside backs of generations gone by who were likelier to catch frostbite than a pass from their fly half. chaussures jordanon 29 Dic 2013 at 21:52

In order for fingernails to grow, new cells need to be produced and this cant happen without glucose. Fingernails , a rate which slows as we age. A layer of tissue beneath the base of the nail called the germinal matrix is responsible for producing the vast majority of the cells which form the newest growing part of the fingernail. The new cells push the older ones forwards, making the nail appear to lengthen from the tip. Death puts a stop to the supply of glucose, and therefore to fingernail growth.

“First base, second base, third base, home run,” Al Vernacchio ticked off the classic baseball terms for sex acts. His goal was to prompt the students in Sexuality and Society an elective for seniors at the private Friends’ Central School on Philadelphia’s affluent Main Line to examine the assumptions buried in the venerable metaphor. “Give me some more,” urged the fast talking 47 year old, who teaches 9th and 12th grade English as well as human sexuality. Arrayed before Vernacchio was a circle of small desks occupied by 22 teenagers, six male and the rest female a blur of sweatshirts and Ugg boots and form fitting leggings.

“Grand slam,” called out a boy (who’d later tell me with disarming matter of factness that “the one thing Mr. V. talked about that made me feel really good was that penis size doesn’t matter”).

“Now, ‘grand slam’ has a bunch of different meanings,” replied Vernacchio, who has a master’s degree in human sexuality. “Some people say it’s an orgy, some people say grand slam is a one night stand. Other stuff?”

“Grass,” a girl, a cheerleader, offered.

“If there’s grass on the field, play ball, right, right,” Vernacchio agreed, “which is interesting in this rather hair phobic society where a lot of people are shaving their pubic hair ”

Vernacchio explained that sex as baseball implies that it’s a game; that one party is the aggressor (almost always the boy), while the other is defending herself; that there is a strict order of play, and you can’t stop until you finish. “If you’re playing baseball,” he elaborated, “you can’t just say, ‘I’m really happy at second base.’ ”

A boy who was the leader of the Young Conservatives Club asked, “But what if it’s just more pleasure getting to home base?” Although this student is a fan of Vernacchio’s, he likes to challenge him about his tendency to empathize with the female perspective. “There is abstinence only sex education, and there’s abstinence based sex ed,” said Leslie Kantor, vice president of education for Planned Parenthood Federation of America. “There’s almost nothing else left in public schools.”

Across the country, the approach ranges from abstinence until marriage is the only acceptable choice, contraceptives don’t work and premarital sex is physically and emotionally harmful, to abstinence is usually best, but if you must have sex, here are some ways to protect yourself from pregnancy and disease. The latter has been called “disaster prevention” education by sex educators who wish they could teach more; a dramatic example of the former comes in a video called “No Second Chances,” which has been used in abstinence only courses. In it, a student asks a school nurse, “What if I want to have sex before I get married?” To which the nurse replies, “Well, I guess you’ll just have to be prepared to die.”

In settings outside schools, the constraints typically aren’t as tight. Bill Taverner, director of the Center for Family Life Education for Planned Parenthood of Greater Northern New Jersey, said that his 11 educators are usually given the most freedom with so called high risk youth, those in juvenile detention, or who live in poor neighborhoods with high teen pregnancy rates. “I wish I could say it was for positive reasons,” he said, “but it’s almost as if society has just kind of thrown up their hands and said, ‘Well, these kids are going to have sex anyway, so you might as well not hide anything from them.’ ”

Sex education in America was invented by Progressive Era reformers like Sears, Roebuck’s president, Julius Rosenwald, and Charles Eliot, the president of Harvard University. Eliot was one of the so called social hygienists who thought that teaching people about the “proper uses of sexuality” would help stamp out venereal disease and the sexual double standard that kept women from achieving full equality. Proper sex meant sex between husband and wife (prostitution was then seen as regrettable but necessary because of men and their “needs”), so educators preached about both the rewards of carnal contact within marriage and the hazards outside of it.

It wasn’t until the 1960s and 1970s that the pill, feminism and generational rebellion smashed the cultural consensus that sex should be confined to marriage. AIDS.” It was around this time that the Unitarian Universalist Association started its famously sex positive curriculum, About Your Sexuality, with details about masturbation and orgasms and slide shows of couples touching one another’s genitals. and the United Church of Christ.)

Back then, even public schools taught what came to be called “comprehensive sex education,” nonjudgmental instruction on bodies, birth control, disease prevention and “healthy relationships” all geared to helping teenagers make responsible choices, one of which might be choosing to become sexually intimate with someone. But by the end of the 1980s, sex ed had taken its place in the basket of wedge issues dividing the right and left. This created the opening for abstinence instruction (the word “abstinence” wasn’t part of the sex ed vernacular until the 1980s) to bulldoze any curriculum that didn’t treat sex as forbidden for teenagers. But Kantor and many others in the field remain “comprehensive sex ed” believers. To them, the license Vernacchio has to roam the sexual landscape is almost unimaginable.

Sitting in the conference room at Friends’, a tall, striking girl told me after class one day last winter that she was on the verge of getting involved with someone she really liked but was hesitating because she knew he had a reputation for juggling multiple girlfriends. The girl, who’d had sex twice in 11th grade with a boy she later discovered was sleeping around, wanted to be monogamous with the new guy but didn’t know how to broach it with him. (She was one of 17 students in Sexuality and Society who spoke to me privately; while Vernacchio is happy to discuss any personal information the kids bring up, he doesn’t seek it.)

Another young woman, who tended to treat her tiny desk in Vernacchio’s class as a lounger, flinging her legs out toward the center of the room, told me that she enjoyed sex for its own sake the way guys do, as she put it. While she could express this with some bravado now, she came into Sexuality and Society in the beginning of the year uneasy about this aspect of herself, she said. A third girl, who called herself a “really anxious person,” still got choked up discussing a false rumor someone wrote on Facebook last fall: that she’d drunkenly offered oral sex to a boy at a party, who, as it happened, also was enrolled in Sexuality and Society. That young man, who didn’t post the lie and was predictably unfazed by it, had fallen for another classmate. That girl was equally besotted, but because they were in “sex class,” the couple always positioned themselves across the room from each other, never side by side; otherwise, they told me, they’d feel like animals in a zoo. Not that the pair weren’t still on display. With the exception of Vernacchio, everyone knew their status and found it impossible not to notice them locking eyes periodically, smiling briefly, before she’d duck her head, push her long, shiny hair behind her ears and turn her gaze back to her teacher.

“Mr. V. takes every question seriously,” another girl, the student council vice president,
botas ugg para bebes The New York Times
told me. “You never feel like it’s the wise sexuality master preaching to the young.” Yet Vernacchio also doesn’t give off the vibe that he wants to be young, or imagines that he still is. His attire every day for the two weeks I attended the class in February was a sweater vest over a button down shirt and tie, except for Valentine’s Day, when he shed the vest for a ruby red shirt and a tie decorated with hearts. That day Vernacchio gave all of his students brightly colored origami hearts he made himself; the members of Sexuality and Society reciprocated by sending him a singing Valentine (a “Glee” worthy rendition of “Everytime We Touch,” by the boys’ barbershop choir).

Vernacchio is nothing so much as a mensch. Gay, with a partner of 17 years, he has ruddy cheeks, a quick smile and a plane of brown hair overhanging his brow, from which he must regularly wipe away sweat during intense discussions.

During a lesson about recognizing your “crumble lines” comments that play to your vulnerability and may make you “act against your values” Vernacchio, a self described “short, round, hairy guy” who struggles with body image issues, revealed his own tendency to fall for anybody who compliments his appearance: “You say you think I’m pretty. I’ll do anything for you.” He was exaggerating a bit for effect, but the poignancy of the self disclosure wasn’t lost on the class.

Friends’ Central, a Quaker prep school that prides itself on both its academic rigor and its ethic of social responsibility, is tucked away in the bucolic hills of suburban Philadelphia. Vernacchio joined the school’s English department in 1998, and when, three years later, he asked to start Sexuality and Society, administrators were delighted. “He teaches at the very highest level,” said David Felsen, who in June retired as headmaster of the school after 23 years. Because Vernacchio was such a gifted instructor, Felsen said, he didn’t worry about parents’ reactions. And in fact, Vernacchio says that no one has ever complained or even voiced reservations about something he discussed in class.

The parents I spoke to ranging from a father who said he loves his son “to pieces” but wishes he knew him better to a mom who gets frequent updates from her daughter now in college seemed grateful for the class. “My daughter is sometimes private,” another mother said, “and I appreciate that there was another place she could go to get good, healthy information.” Early in the year, Vernacchio gives an assignment asking students to interview a parent about how he or she learned about sex, and the father said his son handled it with aplomb: “He was very natural, and I’m the one thinking, This is embarrassing. He was a lot more mature about the conversation than I was.”

Sexuality and Society begins in the fall with a discussion of how to recognize and form your own values, then moves through topics like sexual orientation (occasionally students identify as gay or transgender, Vernacchio said, but in this particular class none did); safer sex; relationships; sexual health; and the emotional and physical terrain of sexual activity.

The lessons that tend to raise eyebrows outside the school, according to Vernacchio, are a medical research video he shows of a woman ejaculating students are allowed to excuse themselves if they prefer not to watch and a couple of dozen up close photographs of vulvas and penises. The photos, Vernacchio said, are intended to show his charges the broad range of what’s out there. “It’s really a process of desensitizing them to what real genitals look like so they’ll be less freaked out by their own and, one day, their partner’s,” he said. What’s interesting, he added, is that both the boys and girls receive the photographs of the penises rather placidly but often insist that the vulvas don’t look “normal.” “They have no point of reference for what a normal, healthy vulva looks like, even their own,” Vernacchio said. The female student council vice president agreed: “When we did the biology unit, I probably would’ve been able to label just as many of the boys’ body parts as the girls’, which is sad. I mean, you should know about the names of your own body.”

Vernacchio is aware that his utter lack of self consciousness in conversing about sexual matters is unusual. “When God was passing out talents,” he likes to say, “I got ease in talking about sex.” But any plan of God’s, whom Vernacchio, a practicing Catholic, often references, was nudged along by two earthly happenings. “As a little kid,” Vernacchio said, “I got pegged as a good public speaker, so I started narrating all the school plays and reading at church; I got over the fear of speaking really early.” Then, around age 12, he started to research sex, having known from kindergarten that he was different in a “way that had to do with boys and girls.” He looked up homosexuality in the family dictionary, then took to going to libraries and planting himself in the sexuality section of the stacks. “I used to have the Dewey decimal number for homosexuality memorized.” He was entirely on his own. There was no discussion of being gay at Vernacchio’s all boys school; none from his parish priest, who at the end of sermons offered a prayer for “veterans of foreign wars, people who live near nuclear power plants and homosexuals”; and not from his parents, either, even after he came out to them at 19. Indeed, one night several years later, his mom was doing dinner dishes at the sink and his dad was plopped on the couch a few feet away in their tiny South Philly house, and Vernacchio mustered the courage to tell them that he was happily dating someone. “My mom never turned around, never reacted in any way, and my dad turned to me, didn’t miss a beat and said, ‘Whatever happened to the metric system?’ ”

It was drummed into him as a human sexuality master’s student, Vernacchio said, to never be explicit merely for the sake of being explicit: have a rationale for every last thing you say. Which occurred to me one day listening to him answer an anonymous question there’s a box on the bookshelf where students can drop them about whether a girl’s urge to urinate during intercourse might be a precursor to female ejaculation. He laid out a plethora of explanations for the feeling, everything from anxiety about having sex to a bladder infection to the possibility that the young woman was getting “some really good G spot stimulation” and in fact verging on ejaculation.

“I just love this class you can ask anything,” a member of the girls’ basketball team told me one day in February. She wears her long blond hair in two braids and shyly divulged that she was in love with her boyfriend of eight months. “You may not be able to get the best information on the Internet, but you can ask Mr. V., and he’ll either know it or ask his sex ed friends,” she said, referring to a sex educators’ e mail list that Vernacchio consults.

Two boys who told me they’d been masturbating to Internet porn since middle school said they found themselves disoriented at the real life encounters they had with girls, but Vernacchio helped them grasp the disjuncture. Pornography “gives boys the impression that the girl is there to do any position you want, or to please you, or to, you know, role play to your liking,” one of them said. “But yesterday, when Mr. V. said there is no romanticism or intimacy in porn, porn is strictly sexual I’d never thought about that.”

One young man in the class told me he had intercourse with 10 girls, but he was a relative outlier. While most of the students had had intercourse 70 percent of teenagers do so by their 19th birthday, according to the Guttmacher Institute only 4 of the 17 I spoke with reported having three or more partners; 10 had had one or two;

Para combatir la hambruna, con el decreto constitucional por el que se establece el Sistema Nacional Para la Cruzada Contra el Hambre (Sinhambre), publicado el 22 de enero en el Diario Oficial de la Federaci (DOF), el gobierno federal se dispuso a la desnutrici infantil y lograr hambre a partir de una alimentaci y nutrici adecuada

El inicio fue la cobertura en los 400 municipios y localidades de M donde se registran las zonas con mayor de pobreza. Seg el gobierno, en las 32 entidades federativas habitan 7.4 millones de mexicanos que carecen de acceso a la alimentaci 3.67 millones viven en zonas urbanas y 3.73 millones en zonas rurales.

Sin embargo, en Morelos, los ni de Milpillas no ver ni una despensa de beneficio, ya que el programa s est dirigido a aquellos que viven en colonias marginadas como Los Patios de la Estaci la Lagunilla, Antonio Barona, o el Chifl de los Caldos, entre otras demarcaciones de Cuernavaca.

Los pepenadores y sus hijos no tuvieron suerte. Tal vez tendr que esperar a que su colonia cumpla 30 a m o a que alg alcalde honesto del Ayuntamiento de Temixco (municipio al que pertenecen) cumpla sus promesas de campa y los provea de alimentos, alumbrado p drenaje, agua potable, calles pavimentadas, escuelas, centros de salud, vivienda digna, y empleos, si es que se puede.

Mientras tanto, en las desoladas calles de tierra se ver a ni descalzos que caminan hacia la tienda que est hecha con l de cart s para comprar 2 o 4 pesos de frituras con salsa, y as calmar por un momento su hambre.

Hasta que se les termine la bolsa, deber esperar a que sus padres regresen de la pepena para comer alguna carne congelada que encontraron en la basura, o tendr que repetir el plato de frijoles que un d antes comieron y cenaron.

No es que se exagere sobre los h alimenticios de los que viven en la colonia de pepenadores: do Mar In S es una de ellos, y lo explica: comemos? Lo que Dios nos da a entender y para lo que nos alcanza. Ahora s que sopa, frijolitos, o de repente papas, porque salen m baratas y hasta del mismo tiradero. A veces se encuentran carnes congeladas, las traemos a casa y gracias a Dios no nos hacen da que ya todos nos hicimos inmunes! Situaci actual

Para que los 120 pepenadores de Milpillas reciban apoyo de cualquier instituci o autoridad, quiz deber registrar miles de habitantes para obtener el distingo de ciudad y acceder al beneficio que s recibir 76 mil 894 personas en pobreza y carencia de alimentaci que habitan en el cintur de pobreza en Cuernavaca.

Estos capitalinos representan s el 19 por ciento de los 391 mil 924 morelenses que, seg el Consejo Nacional de Evaluaci de la Pol de Desarrollo Social (Coneval), padecen carencias por acceso a la alimentaci En general, estos m de 390 mil ciudadanos representan que el 22 por ciento de la poblaci total (un mill 781 mil 476) carece de acceso a los alimentos.

De acuerdo con el organismo, el 81 por ciento (el resto) de los ciudadanos que viven en ciudades y/o municipios de Morelos seguir con un nudo en el est pues el apoyo no es suficiente.

Por orden de carencia alimentaria,
uggs botas Sufren pobreza alimentaria 390 mil morelenses
los municipios de Emiliano Zapata, Miacatl y Temixco ocupan los primeros lugares en el estado donde la gente tiene problemas para alimentarse: el primero registra 29 mil 429 de sus 103 mil 263 habitantes; el segundo, 4 mil 994 de 17 mil 836 habitantes, y Temixco tiene 25 mil 610 hambrientos de sus 94 mil 503 habitantes.

En Morelos, la cruzada para combatir el hambre no bastar para erradicar ni combatir el problema; ser insuficiente. De los 33 municipios, s Cuernavaca recibir despensas mensuales, entre otros apoyos.

De acuerdo con el analista pol Jorge Ornelas Lizardi, existen regiones en la tierra del General Emiliano Zapata donde las necesidades son mayores que en Cuernavaca. Dice que un ejemplo de ello son las galeras de Cuautla y Zacatepec donde viven los ca que decidieron quedarse despu de la zafra.

estos sitios, la gente vive hacinada. Creo que en esas partes es donde est m fuerte el problema. Quiz est bien en cuanto a que les den los alimentos, pero lo mejor ser atender la pobreza de los padres; ella es la ra de la falta de alimentaci La soluci no est en darles dinero, si no en mejorar sus condiciones de vida, oportunidades de trabajo, pero sobre todo, sus salarios

En este sentido, refiere que aunque en la capital morelense tambi se tienen necesidades de alimento, no son mayores que a las que se enfrentan los campesinos en las zonas rurales.

Sin embargo, hasta diciembre de 2012, el Coneval registr en sus L de Bienestar que el valor de la canasta alimentaria (por mes) en la zona rural del pa fue de 823.95 pesos, y de mil 158.60 pesos en el medio urbano. Resulta m cara la alimentaci en la ciudad que en el campo.

Pese a ello, Ornelas Lizardi a que m all de las estad quiz los funcionarios optaron por iniciar con las urbes del pa debido a la comodidad que les representa trasladar los apoyos de una colonia a otra, ya que el esfuerzo no ser el mismo si tuvieran que moverse desde el norte hasta el sur de cada entidad.

Sin embargo, el subdelegado de Desarrollo Social y Humano de la delegaci de la Secretar de Desarrollo Social (Sedesol) en Morelos, Ulises Gudi Guzm se defiende y refiere que a faltan por definirse en los pr 60 d los lineamientos de la Cruzada Nacional contra el Hambre.

No obstante, informa que el caso de Morelos, nos est asignando que sea el municipio de Cuernavaca el que se va a atender durante este primer a En el caso de Cuernavaca, se va a atender aproximadamente a una poblaci de 8 mil 55 personas que est en pobreza extrema, y que adem carecen de acceso a la alimentaci

A que en la capital morelense la Cruzada beneficiar a 9 mil 500 personas que viven en pobreza extrema, y otras 8 mil 55 que tambi est en pobreza extrema y carentes de acceso a la alimentaci total, suman 17 mil 555 beneficiados a pesar de que la cifra oficial del del Hambre se que son 76 mil 894 los hambrientos.

“Los mexicanos conservamos una costumbre de apoyarnos en las comunidades rurales, si alguien no tiene que comer siempre hay un apoyo. Sin embargo, esto no sucede en las ciudades porque el mismo desarrollo poblacional nos ahoga”

No soy yo el timonel?, pregunté. Asintieron, pero sólo tenían miradas para el extrao. Cuando él les dijo: “No me molesten!”, se reunieron y, asintiendo con la cabeza, bajaron otra vez la escalerilla.

Qué pueblo es éste? Piensan también, o sólo se arrastran sin sentido sobre la tierra?

Ser guitarrista y animarse a tocar con The Jimi Hendrix Experience no era un picnic. Por eso Noel Redding, a quien pensaban auditar con los Animals de Eric Burdon, aceptó de buena gana abandonar las seis cuerdas de su Gibson SG por las cuatro de un Fender Jazz Bass. Así fue como se ganó su lugar en la base del histórico power trío junto a Mitch Mitchell, un baterista de 19 aos, pura potencia y técnica exquisita.

Sólo Eric Clapton tocaba con Jimi sin inhibiciones, cuando en los muros de ese Londres modelo 66 se repetía el grito de guerra: “Clapton is God!”. El resto de sus colegas sentían hacia él una extraa mezcla de admiración, asombro y distancia. James Marshall Hendrix como Lionel Messi era un caso excepcional. Pero todos querían improvisar un rato con él. No había tantos Dybalas racionales, en ese tiempo loco.

Después de varias semanas de ensayos con Bertolucci para El último tango en París (1972), Marlon Brando decidió pasar unos días en su casa con la veinteaera y casi debutante María Schneider, para aflojar tensiones y entrenar sus cuerpos para los duros episodios de sexo que marcaba el libro. Para filmar la famosa escena del pote de manteca y la sodomización, el director y su estrella acordaron cómo jugar al límite esa improvisación dramática. Pero ella nunca lo supo y su desesperación no fue actuada. María se pasó el resto de su vida reprochándoles a ambos lo que hicieron en ese corte de la película que la hizo famosa, y resultó no ser del todo ficción.

Tampoco es fácil el arte de la buena entrevista, sobre todo en una época tan light, donde la repregunta fue desplazada por la anécdota simpática, más cómoda para el invitado. Hay que transpirar cuando se enfrenta a alguien sólido, que responde con firmeza, lejos de la lógica fugaz, gritos, timbres, campanazos, entrevistadores con guion. No cualquiera.

No imagino a Paulo Dybala con la fría intención de tirar una bomba frente a la prensa antes del partido que la Juventus perdió con baile con el Bara de Messi en el Camp Nou, por la Champions. “Es un privilegio jugar con Messi, aprendo mucho, pero me cuesta hacerlo porque jugamos en la misma posición; trato de adaptarme y dejarle el espacio, pero no me siento cómodo”, dijo, sin muecas de fastidio.

El viscoso mundo futbolero estalló en interpretaciones Nesquik se lo tira, se revuelve y listo de este nivel: “Se quiere borrar como Higuaín”, “Tiene miedo”, “Se autoexcluyó”, como reflexionó el pensador de Sarandí Little Humbert Gran Donna. Bochini desdeó la metáfora y reflexionó con furia: “Si no podés jugar con Messi, con quién podés jugar,

nene?”. Con Hendrix Brando, seguro que no.

Qué problema tiene Dybala con Messi? Que juega de lo mismo. En la poderosa Juve, campeonísima en Italia y Europa, es el dueo del equipo y se mueve de memoria con un tanque de área que puede salir y tocar, como Higuaín. Justamente fue el 9 quien, aliviado, le agradeció a Sampaoli por no haberlo convocado. “No sabés el peso que me sacás de encima”, se sinceró. A falta de goles decisivos y copas en alto, quiere dejar de ser el eterno rey del meme burlón. Lo que no es justo, creo. Pero ya lo decía el catalán: nunca es triste la verdad.

Con Mauro Icardi de Wanda estaqueado en el área, Di María o Acua por la izquierda y Messi libre o en diagonal de derecha hacia el centro, Dybala se siente un homeless sin GPS, perdido en el espacio, sin posibilidades de desarrollar su juego. Si la presión ya era intolerable antes, hecha pública su incomodidad será mucho peor. Sampaoli, por las dudas, convocó a Papu Gómez otro Messi de segunda selección para sumar alternativas de cara al aterrador choque con Perú.

La discusión por si un cambio de escenario pueda por sí mismo convertir a ese puado de conejillos asustados en una manada de pumas en celo fue desopilante. Convencidos de que el Monumental es frío y tiene a la gente demasiado lejos, fueron en busca de la intimidante Bombonera, que tiembla como la isla de Java, tiene las tribunas cerca y su rugido, se sabe, arruga las almas y los corazones rivales.

El problema es saber, en esta coyuntura, quién se sentirá más presionado con el aliento en la nuca. El equipo peruano que llega livianito de carga y se reconoce más débil, o nuestros virtuosos superstars con angustia fácil? Mmm

En River, con un público amable y mudo, más cercano al teatro de verano que a la tribuna futbolera, no acertaron dos pases seguidos. En Boca, con un público similar, la cosa no puede variar demasiado por más cerca que esté.

A menos que En una jugada que para nada me sorprendería, Danyel Angel Easy y Chiqui Wall de Moyano tengan pensado contratar a la La 12, exitosa pyme nativa reconocida en el mundo a fuerza de coros, banderas, bombos, navajas y fierros de diferente calibre. Tal vez sumen a la patriada a otros colegas de diferentes clubes e idéntica pasión por el apriete rentado. Si algo le falta a este país desdichado es convertir a estos energúmenos de elite en héroes. Ay.

La AFA, inspirada por el audaz estilo del equipo económico que quiere bajar la inflación congelando el consumo, con tasas altas y apertura de importaciones, modificó el precio de las entradas. Bien. Más baratas, para llenar el estadio? No precisamente, compatriotas. Lo más accesible es la popular a 550 pesos con menores a 350. Las plateas van de los 2.800 pesos a los 4.800. Glup.

Esto confirma una presunción que, cada tanto,
botas ugg australia baratas Te invito a mi fiestita
me da vueltas en la cabeza. No nos han mentido. Sí se puede vivir en un mundo mejor. Existe. Pero es carísimo.

ugg baratas outlet These Boots Were Made for 22 M

UFA, Russia Being a star engineering student at the top notch science university here wasn’t enough to exempt Viktor K. Gordeyev from his physical education class.

Mr. Gordeyev, a specialist in airplane piston engines, sweated it out with everyone else, running laps in lumbering heavy boots in this town in the foothills of the Ural Mountains.

He vowed to find an easier way. Eventually, he found one or at least came close. Mr. Gordeyev invented a gasoline powered boot that looks like pogo sticks that strap to your shins, and they work on the same principle as the air cushioned basketball shoe.

But rather than being dismissed as a crackpot invention, his boots which use tiny pistons became classified as a Russian military secret until 1994.

Many government officials, Russian scientists and economists are focusing these days on the need to generate new sources of growth to diversify the country’s economy away from oil the unsteady source of Russia’s recent prosperity.

And there is a growing consensus that entrepreneurialism has promise but faces serious obstacles, including no vibrant mechanism to bring together venture capitalists, inventors and entrepreneurs to develop viable commercial products.

In February, President Vladimir V. Putin implored the country’s most prominent businesses to branch out and invest in innovation and science. German O. Gref, the minister of economic development, often says Russia’s scientific base distinguishes it from other emerging market economies in India, China and Brazil, even though Russia is often compared to them.

But as part of a series of pointed articles, the Russian edition of Popular Mechanics magazine argued that Mr. Gordeyev’s thwarted attempt to commercialize the shoes is a symbol of the country’s failure to tap its considerable scientific talent for profitable business ideas.

The dream Mr. Gordeyev conceived in 1974 to run faster and jump higher without getting tired might never have become a popular option for commuters or even caught on as a sport. But unlike the Segway, the American invented self balancing scooter, it never had a chance.

Instead, the boots became a military secret, as generals envisioned soldiers running swiftly and effortlessly alongside armored vehicles.

The boots were declassified in 1994, and Mr. Gordeyev and his partners imagined growing rich by selling their invention to a lazy public. Instead, the company went out of business in 2006.

Like the boots, Russian scientists are still trying to gain traction in the capitalist world. A company in Saratov making a novel transport airplane with no tail, called the “flying saucer,” never got off the ground.

Russia also has other examples of good ideas later bungled in the process of commercialization. The Russian inventor of the Tetris video game was unable to patent his invention, and thus lost out on huge amounts of money. Russian engineers invented submersible pumps for oil wells, but failed to invest in their development; now Russian companies buy Western models from Halliburton.

And, in contrast to the United States, venture capital firms and start up companies in Russia have not congregated near technology universities. Russian computer programmers, successful in Silicon Valley, are best known at home for hacking.

“Venture capital firms are starting to work here,

but as a rule, if something comes to their attention it is an exception,” said Igor R. Belousov, a Hewlett Packard executive who coordinates the company’s research at Russian universities.

Meanwhile, natural resources account for 80 percent of Russia’s export revenue; crude oil and natural gas alone account for 65 percent.

To encourage foreign companies to invest in cities rich in scientific talent, Mr. Gref’s ministry is setting up technology parks with tax breaks in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Nizhny Novgorod and Novosibirsk.

In another example, Boris V. Gryzlov, the speaker of Parliament, said in February that his political party, United Russia, should help Russian inventors find markets for their ideas. The program is called the Idea Factory.

Like so much else in Russia these days, it envisions a big role for the Kremlin in venture capital; some 30 committees would recommend scientists for state grants. That approach is not surprising, given the country’s history of channeling industrial innovation into its military the first home of Mr. Gordeyev’s shoes.

“Everything that would happen in an engine happens when you step down” in the boots, said Rustam D. Enikeev, the dean of the faculty of internal combustion at the Ufa State Aviation Technical University.

A step down compresses air in the shoe as in a typical sneaker, said Mr. Enikeev, who was a designer on the project. But then, a tiny carburetor injects gasoline into the compressed air and a spark plug fires it off. Instead of fastening a seat belt, the institute’s test runner, Marat D. Garipov, an assistant professor of engineering, strapped on shin belts at a recent demonstration. Then he flicked an ignition switch.

Before running down a university corridor, he jumped in place a few times to warm up the engine. Mr. Garipov then ran laps for about 10 minutes, going about 12 miles per hour, with the two stroke boots emitting small puffs of exhaust.

A test runner once topped out at 21.7 miles per hour, despite the risk of being sent off balance.

The tanks in the shoes hold a third of a cup of gasoline each and will take the runner three miles; that means the boots get about 70 miles per gallon.

But even after years of research, gasoline assisted running remains dangerous.

“The worst situation is when the spark fires as the runner just lands, and the force of the blast is absorbed by his body,
ugg madrid These Boots Were Made for 22 M
” Mr. Garipov explains flatly.
