"The story of tiny Nauru (...) is a tale of rapacious colonialism, epic mismanagement, and avarice. Australia, New Zealand and Britain had nearly exhausted the viable deposits of phosphate by 1968 when Australia granted Nauru sovereignty, leaving behind one of the world’s worst environmental disasters."

But hey, "the saver-investor initiates a "process of civilization" according to some...

They: "But the statistics say …"
Me: "Can you give me them?"
They: "No, you can google it for yourself"
I google it, find out that they do not support what the person said and tell/show them the articles.
They: "You can't trust statistics, that you didn't fix up yourself"

What the fuck?

So we're on 2.5 now.

Many thanks to all those involved!

Me entristece tener que informarles que hoy, mientras se llevava acabo un mitin pacifico por la mala administración de los CCHs de la UNAM y por el feminicidio de esta semana, llegaron porros con palos, rocas, petardos y molotovs a agredir a los estudiantes.

i do want to add that this fire not only destroyed the Paço de São Cristóvão, but also the oldest portions of the National Archive, which date back to the arrival of the Portuguese. Documents contained there included a copy of the 1492 Treaty of Tordesillas, the first and only extant copy of Língua Brasilica, a Roman Catholic manual of prayer in Old Tupi written by St José Anchieta, apostle of Brazil, and the Brazilian crown jewels.

Details are forthcoming--

There is widespread consternation and outrage that the Museu Nacional was subject to extreme budget cuts and "reforms" during President Michel Temer's tenure in the week of the impeachment of his political rival, Dilma Rousseff.

The fire could have been prevented had fire hydrants been working on the grounds of the Museu. Unfortunately, the funding for that was cut by the Temer government.

Capitalism at work 😘
