    Governo abre as porteiras das terras indígenas -

    Foi publicada no Diário Oficial da União a edição da Portaria nº 303, que permite intervenções do poder público em Terras Indígenas sem a necessidade de consulta aos povos ou à Fundação Nacional do Índio (Funai).

    Isso quer dizer na prática que, a partir de agora, será possível construir bases militares, rodovias ou hidrelétricas em áreas demarcadas sem qualquer consulta às comunidades indígenas envolvidas ou ao órgão responsável. Com isso, o governo mais uma vez se curva ao poder do capital e dos grandes empreendimentos, em detrimento aos direitos de suas populações tradicionais, ferindo a Constituição Federal.

    The 25 Sexiest Album Covers of All Time



    Of all the things we regularly lament the demise of here at the Nerve office (manners, pennyfarthings, dueling as a method of conflict resolution), none causes us to gnash our teeth and wail skyward like the demise of album covers as an art form. Nowadays, with album art confined to a tiny square in your iTunes window, we've lost the ability to gaze longingly (or lustily) at the covers of our favorite albums. So we're taking a trip down erotic memory lane, and commemorating the twenty-five sexiest album covers of all time. Where others might call any cover with some bare flesh sexy, we tried to limit our choices to covers with a bit of wit and panache; we think you'll agree it's not what you've got, but how you use it. Enjoy with a touch of nostalgic tumescence.

    Isso é que é


    Reportagens, clips de abertura de competições, clips na própria Abertura Olímpica, mostram cenas da tocha percorrendo, na mão de vários atletas e semiatletas, os rincões da Inglaterra, becos de vilas, ruas das cidades, trechos ladeados de espectadores eufóricos. Algumas cenas são emocionantes.

    O que nunca é mostrado: em todos esses trechos, depois do portador da tocha, e do aparato, seguia sempre um carro da Coca-Cola distribuindo garrafinhas.

    Beijo Olímpico


    Outro detalhezinho de mensagens políticas embutidas na cerimonia de abertura da olimpiada Londres 2012

    Sequencia onde cenas de programas da TV inglesas, as importantes, as afetivas, eram projetadas nas paredes da "casa da família britânica". Eventualmente, a transmissão mostrava alguma em primeiro plano.

    Entre elas, a cena do primeiro beijo homossexual a passar na TV da Inglaterra, entre duas mulheres (em 1994). E de repente, pela retransmissão planeta afora, diversas emissoras em países onde isso nunca aconteceu (e demoraria para acontecer) estavam mostrando (mesmo por um átimo) um beijo entre pessoas do mesmo sexo. Imaginem isto no mundo árabe, por exemplo!

    Uma Abertura Aberta



    Em meio à glorificação da Inglaterra e do esporte, Danny Boyle & equipe passaram algumas  mensagens de cunho político embutidas na Cerimonia de Abertura da Olimpíada 2012.

    1) a valorização do NHS (National Health Service)
    para um mundo onde a maior nação do planeta se recusa a ouvir pensar nem numa versão aguada de algum sistema de saúde público
    (e que está sob ataque na própria Inglaterra pelos mercenários da saúde)

    2) uma família multirracial apresentada como representante da Inglaterra atual
    tapa no racismo, brado pela diversidade (e sem panfletismos, com naturalidade, com festa)

    3) nem precisaria comentar sobre a maneira vilanesca em que aparecerem os capitalistas industriais,
    apesar da exaltação nibelunguesca do aço

    4) na interessante homenagem a Tim Berners-Lee e à criação do www (leia-se todo um novo mundo) a citação que correu os LEDS do público: THIS IS FOR EVERYONE!
    recado para os que pretendem controlar ou dominar a internet

    5) o mais importante para mim
    os regimes totalitários são craques em exibições de massa
    em coreografar & coordenar passos & pessoas à perfeição
    robos-peças da imensa e grandiosa máquina-estado
    e poderão promover cerimonias impressionantes como Berlim 36, Beijin 08, Moscou e seu Misha

    mas jamais terão o toque humano
    a alegria de viver que permeou este espetáculo
    e principalmente: não tem (nem poderão permitir) um ingrediente essencial:  HUMOR.

    A capacidade de rir mesmo das coisas mais sérias e sinfônicas.
    País onde a Suprema Dignatária da Nação atua num esquete onde finge saltar de paraquedas com um personagem de ficçãopop  é outra coisa.

    Olympic opening ceremony: It didn't make a bit of sense, but what a thrilling spectacle and what fun

     

    Danny Boyle has just made the biggest, maddest, weirdest, most heartfelt and lovable dream sequence in British cinema history. Heaven knows, hopes were not high after our sheepish "handover" performance in Beijing in 2008; we thought we would never match the Chinese and many of us were getting ready to excuse the anticipated cockups and catastrophes as proof of our supposedly superior democratic tolerance.
    But Boyle's opening ceremony was the equal of Beijing and more.

    These influences are very serious. Boyle corrected this, and gave the ceremony two things I never believed could co-exist in a sports arena: a sense of humour and a sense of wonder.

    It didn't make a bit of sense, but what a thrilling spectacle and what fun. This could be Danny Boyle's 3D multimedia masterpiece.

    Games That Will Never Make It To The Olympics

    All of this fanfare, built around games.

    While the Olympics represent the upper echelon of games, for many, games are simply a way to pass the time, connect with others and have fun. The Olympics utilize the best in facilities and technology, but many games for people in developing nations involve found objects, a heavy dose of creativity and ingenuity. These games will never make it to the Olympics -- and that's okay. The joy they bring to their participants is worth more than a gold medal.

    Mitt Romney, the Unlikable Presidential Candidate

    It’s been a long time since the country elected a man as personally unappealing as Mitt Romney. Will Americans overlook their deeply held conviction that he’s a jerk? 

    Romney might still pass muster, but he has no grasp of the one crucial reality of class in America: you can be filthy rich as long as you don’t look or act like it. Gates doesn’t comb his hair, much. Jobs wore sneakers. Romney just looks too pressed. Even when he’s wearing those jeans. You can look at Romney on television and practically sense how he smells—of costly ablutions whose brand names the rest of us probably don’t even know. And he acts relentlessly rich.

    So the Olympics opening-ceremony soundtrack is radical? Yeah, right








    So the Olympics opening ceremony isn't just going to be Teletubbies Land with sheep? Albion will rise, for the Queen will spontaneously combust when she hears God Save the Queen by the Sex Pistols.

    Yet this playlist is not really controversial because, let's face it, it is that of the dreaded "50-quid bloke". The man who spends that much in one hit, as he can't get out to gigs like he used to. He hates The X Factor and likes bands that remind him of bands he used to like when young.  


    Look at all the punk nostalgia around the Jubilee. Peculiar and sad. Not because Westwood now loves the Queen or John Lydon does butter ads but because we can't move on

    What I can't forgive though is the pretence that punk was the pure source. Even at the time it was the most mediated, dissected and goadingly self-conscious of subcultures – and very quickly commodified. Most people who were part of it never ever wore bondage trousers or mohicans or any of the uniform. We were messing about with loads of makeup, silly "sexy" clothes while listening to loads of dub. We did want to upset people. But mainly just people at the bus stop. We wore synthetic nan dresses from charity shops and stuck toothbrushes in our hair. That was enough to look different.

    Papa manda proibir revista de sátira

     

    Esta história começa com uma palavra-chave: vazamentos. Desde janeiro deste ano, uma série deles tem incomodado o papa Bento 16 e seu entorno. Documentos secretos e informações confidenciais vazaram do Vaticano para a imprensa italiana, desencadeando um processo que ficou conhecido como VatiLeaks.

     Na Alemanha, país natal de Bento 16, o assunto virou não só notícia, mas também piada. A revista humorística Titanic publicou, na capa e contracapa da edição de junho último, caricaturas retratando um papa senil e incontinente, com as roupas manchadas de urina e fezes, sob a seguinte manchete: “Aleluia no Vaticano – acharam o local do vazamento” (Halleluja im Vatikan – Die undichte Stelle ist gefunden)

    Titanic é uma revista de média circulação, com tiragem em torno de 100 mil exemplares e há 30 anos no mercado. Com o acesso de cólera do Vaticano, assinaturas e vendas em banca se multiplicaram exponencialmente. Ou seja, o que antes era veículo de entretenimento para um público de perfil alternativo tornou-se rapidamente um poderoso meio de massa. Desde então, Leo Fischer, o editor-chefe, atende a entrevistas diárias em diversos meios de comunicação alemães e toma ares de celebridade.

    WORD - A morte de uma revista

    Triste saber que, no mundo todo, tão poucas pessoas se dispunham a pagar por uma publicação que conseguia acompanhar muito de perto as novidades – mas sem cair na doença infantil da imprensa musical, especialmente britânica, de buscar o novo pelo novo. E que sabia revisitar o passado sem nostalgia ou choramingos do tipo “bom mesmo era naquele tempo”.

    Hermano Vianna: Já passou o bombardeio literário da Flip?


    A Folha de S. Paulo decretou que a edição foi salva “aos 45 do 2º tempo”. O jornal reatou o romance com manchete bem assanhadinha na sua geralmente sisuda primeira página: “Com debates divertidos, Flip empolga no último dia”.

    Divertido? Empolga?

    Preciso defender os escritores malas. É muita crueldade exigir que, além de escrever bem, tenham talento para divertir ou esquentar plateias impacientes, com déficit de atenção ou com hiperatividade só controlada com muita ritalina. Ficou chato, não está a fim de enfrentar a chatice? Navegue pela internet do seu smartphone, mas mantenha um ouvido ligado no palco: quem sabe daqui a vinte minutos o escritor morno não solte uma frase brilhante de poucos caracteres e perfeitamente retuitável?

    Eventos tipo TED já nos acostumaram com conferências de 10 minutos todas embaladas por imagens velozes no power point e performances impecáveis/ensaiadas de palestrante transformado em show-man, com tiradas bem-humoradas, indignadas ou politicamente incorretas (é isso que esquenta o público) emitidas com timing perfeito. Ler demora, é chato: o grande público quer um resumo divertido. Ou quer apenas um ponto de encontro badalado, para ver e ser visto, e depois ter assunto para comentar no Facebook. O Facebook parece ser destino e modelo para tudo (é o condomínio fechado que engoliu a cidade).

    Alexander Cockburn and the Radical Power of the Word



    Alex shared Tom Paine’s faith in the necessity of information and insight, of speaking truth to power; this, he knew, to be the essential element for building the activism that would begin the world over again. He was a radical democrat who believed ultimately in the power of the people to overturn the corruptions of empire that politicians and the corporate media would otherwise keep in place.

    Alex kept the radical faith, steadily, constantly, going to the ends of the earth to cover the next story of revolt and revolution, going to the far corners of the United States to uncover the news that Americans were not taking it anymore. If a crowd had gathered, and if they were raising the red flag, or any flag of protest, that was enough for Alex. He would report their struggle, usually in The Nation, but also in the pages of The New York Review of Books, Harper’s, Esquire, the Village Voice and (for a brief period as remarkable as it was ironic) the Wall Street Journal.

    At comics convention, the serious side is taking over

     

    The issue for the conventioneers was that after struggling since the 1970s to have the comics taken seriously, they have now succeeded, perhaps too well. The geek culture has been around long enough to create a tenured intellectual elite, and, by and large, these professionals see nothing but trouble in the fantasy world.

    Does Hollywood hate adults?






    Is Hollywood’s business model failing because it’s almost exclusively focused on teenagers and young adults, and largely ignores moviegoers over 30?

     There’s an entire adult demographic out there who would be happy to go to the movies every damn week, if there were something they wanted to see. Generally there isn’t, so they stay home and watch “Breaking Bad,” “Game of Thrones,” “The Good Wife” and so on.

    I have this gnawing suspicion that tentpoles, the majors’ flagship movies, have stopped being the best advertisement for movies. In fact, they may be having the opposite effect.
    Today’s tentpoles are to movies what Thanksgiving is to dinner — nice for a special occasion, but not something you’d want to have every week … My colleague Peter Debruge puts it another way. He observes that with so many entertainment options available, tentpoles are designed to overdeliver — to be bigger, louder, longer and longer — just to get people into the multiplex and leave them feeling they got their money’s worth. The resulting movies are as rich and heavy as a super-sized meal at McDonald’s.

    Why is it that Hollywood doesn’t get that message? With each passing year, they churn out more and more product that is entirely geared toward teenagers, while simultaneously fretting about how that audience is no longer interested in going to the movies. They spend more and more marketing dollars trying to get the attention of an audience that has an attention deficit, while simultaneously raising admission prices until they have put tickets out of reach for the very audience they are trying to capture.

    It’s a symptom of the fact that Hollywood remains trapped in an old, inflexible business model based on Gigantor-size spectacles — in an age when everything else about the culture has gotten more niche-oriented and individualized — but hasn’t yet faced a big enough crisis to force major change.

    Confissões de uma ex-funcionária do Facebook


    No melhor estilo fraternidade, o Facebook adota a política “ou você segue a nossa linha ou cai fora”. É uma quase religião. Funcionários recebem subsídios para morarem perto da sede do Facebook e assim poderem trabalhar mais vezes até tarde. Sair mais cedo não é bem visto. Publicar pouco no Facebook também não. Falar mal da plataforma, nem pensar.

    Da mesma forma que a Casas Bahia se apresenta ao mercado como uma loja de móveis, mas é uma financiadora; ou a Boticário, que se expõe como uma perfumaria/cosméticos, mas, na realidade, está no mercado de presentes, o Facebook caminha para ser uma empresa de dados, mas que se apresenta ao mercado como uma plataforma de rede social.

    Fukushima as Manufactured Disaster


     They may not live in castles anymore, but the glass-plated skyscrapers that tower over the great cities of the world, in faceless anonymity, still signify the imperious domain of the ruling elite.  It is from these places, not the featureless depths of the earth’s roiling crust, which were the decisive cause of the triple nuclear meltdowns at the Fukushima-Daiichi plant on 11th March 2011.

    Contrary to all the talk about “an unforeseeable event” from governments around the world and nuclear apologists of the left and right, the nuclear meltdowns, with all their untold and long-term consequences for the physical and mental health of the people of the region, were entirely preventable if the corporation which operated the plants, TEPCO, or the government bodies charged with regulating the nuclear industry, NISA and METI, had taken the appropriate safety precautions:


    Ultimately, we get to the heart of the matter: “As the nuclear power business became less profitable over the years, TEPCO’s management began to put more emphasis on cost cutting and increasing Japan’s reliance on nuclear power.”

    Penn Jillette Accuses Obama Of Class Warfare For Drug Policy



     Jillette, who has never done drugs or drunk alcohol in his life, expressed particular concern over the policies' broad-sweeping, all-inclusive nature. Namely, that people are going to prison because of marijuana use.

    Do we believe, even for a second, that if Obama had been busted for marijuana -- under the laws that he condones -- would his life have been better? If Obama had been caught with the marijuana that he says he uses, and 'maybe a little blow'... if he had been busted under his laws, he would have done hard f*cking time. And if he had done time in prison, time in federal prison, time for his 'weed' and 'a little blow,' he would not be President of the United States of America. He would not have gone to his fancy-a** college, he would not have sold books that sold millions and millions of copies and made millions and millions of dollars, he would not have a beautiful, smart wife, he would not have a great job. He would have been in f*cking prison, and it's not a god damn joke. People who smoke marijuana must be set free. It is insane to lock people up.

    Já estava combinado. Passada a exposição da Rio+20, as últimas salvaguardas ambientais seriam retiradas pelos tratores. Interrompe-se o processo de construção da governança socioambiental democrática e baseada em princípios, que havia avançado desde a Constituição de 88.
    Arquiva-se a ideia de que os líderes políticos pudessem mediar os interesses entre a mentalidade produtivista predatória e as urgências das mudanças climáticas. Acaba também uma fase em que a ciência podia influenciar o debate e as decisões políticas. Tudo agora se reduz ao pragmatismo e às conveniências eleitorais

    Why does Fifty Shades of Grey turn British women on?




    So has James created the latest commercial genre for our age – what the commentator India Knight has called "the porn version of cupcakes and Cath Kidston"? Or does her racy trilogy answer a deeper, unmet need among women readers?

    Whether the Grey books are porn dressed up as romance, or romance dressed up as porn, remains up for debate. Whatever the answer, it is absolutely clear that for a while there will be nothing so good for flogging books as books about flogging.

    It is known as the "Little French Box", a 1980s design classic now seen as the ultimate in beige plastic kitsch. But once it was an audacious precursor to the world wide web, introduced the first cybersex into people's living rooms and had a user-friendly design that may have inspired Steve Jobs's first Macintosh computer.

    Yet, on Saturday, the plug will finally be pulled on the Minitel machine, France's one-time pride and joy, 30 years after its launch. And while the nation marvels at the fact that 800,000 of the clunky terminals with massive buttons are still in circulation, the Minitel is shedding its square image and enjoying a moment of mass nostalgia.

    Ernest Borgnine’s Most Memorable Moments







    Oscar winning actor Ernest Borgnine died on Sunday at the age of 95. The star was known for playing blustery characters with hearts of gold and had a penchant for playing villains. While he won his best-actor Oscar for Marty back in 1955, Borgnine has made an impact on succeeding generations by continuing to crank out work in Hollywood well past retirement age and by playing roles on television shows like Airwolf, ER, and voicing Mermaidman on Nickelodeon’s SpongeBob Squarepants along with his McHale’s Navy costar Tim Conway.

    André Trigueiro: é leviano resumir a tese do aquecimento global a uma conspiração


    Como imaginar que esse suposto “movimento orquestrado em favor do aquecimento global” seja ainda mais poderoso do que o lobby dos combustíveis fósseis (ou mesmo das empresas do setor automobilístico), a quem a hipótese da elevação da temperatura do planeta pela queima de óleo, carvão e gás tanto incomoda por razões óbvias? É inegável o poder que as companhias de petróleo ainda possuem para financiar campanhas, definir políticas públicas e os resultados de Conferências da ONU, como foi o caso recentemente da Rio+20, onde não se conseguiu reduzir em um único centavo aproximadamente 1 trilhão de dólares anuais em subsídios governamentais para os combustíveis fósseis no mundo inteiro. 

    As modelagens do clima não explicam totalmente as variações de temperatura em função das emissões de gases estufa. Ainda assim, há hoje mais certezas do que dúvidas de que o planeta está aquecendo e que os gases estufa emitidos pela Humanidade contribuem para esse fenômeno. 
    As oscilações naturais de temperatura do planeta em eras geológicas, a interferência do Sol nos fenômenos climáticos e todas as outras possibilidades que explicariam o que está acontecendo hoje são objeto de inúmeros estudos e pesquisas. Mesmo assim, segundo a corrente majoritária de cientistas, não há, até o momento, outra explicação mais convincente e embasada para explicar as mudanças climáticas, do que a interferência humana.

    Petrobrás domina Baía da Guanabara e complica vida dos pescadores




    Pescar na Baía de Guanabara virou sinônimo de navegar em águas perigosas.
    A principal linha de investigação da DH é a que liga os crimes a uma disputa feroz por áreas de pesca.

     Lauro cita um outro fato que ajudaria a aumentar o clima de tensão na Baía. Ele afirma que há um conflito cada vez mais acirrado entre os pescadores e a indústria petrolífera, com o aumento das zonas de exclusão de pesca — ou seja, em áreas do mar onde passam dutos das empresas, a atividade é proibida.

    Deu no New York Times: As Growth Ebbs, Brazil Powers Up Its Bulldozer


     

    “The government is pressing ahead with projects of pharaonic proportions, when areas like basic sanitation need urgent attention,” said Sergio Lazzarini, an economist at Insper, a São Paulo business school, who has written widely on Brazil’s state capitalism. The investment push is already showing signs of strain. So many infrastructure projects have been approved at once, including stadiums for the World Cup soccer tournament in 2014 and hydroelectric plants in the Amazon, that the government is having a hard time spending all the money allocated. For instance, just a fifth of the $7 billion budgeted for highway projects in 2012 has been spent.

    The officials at the helm of Brazil’s state-controlled companies argue that the nation still needs such sprawling projects to consolidate the gains in reducing inequality. “It’s a catalyst of job creation,”

    'Mad Men' And 'Game Of Thrones' Comparisons: Are The Characters Separated At Birth? (PHOTOS)



    Both shows feature perfectly constructed costumes and elaborate sets meant to transport us to other worlds -- and they do so successfully, week after week. But these fine cable dramas are so much more than the sum of their exceptional production values: They're complex and realistically contradictory explorations of the games people play to get ahead or to just hang on to what they've got.

     Both "Mad Men" and "Game of Thrones" spend a lot of time meditating on the nature and use of power -- how those who don't have it try to get it, the wise and unwise ways in which those in authority wield it, how those with lower status fight to preserve a scrap of autonomy, and how people can give the impression of having control even when they're unsure of where they stand. To be a character on either drama is to face constant flux and change -- not all of which is bad, mind you.

    School bans 9yr old student´s blog about her daily lunch hour




    When nine-year-old Martha Payne set up a blog six weeks ago, to show pictures of her daily school lunch – sometimes meagre, often fried – it was meant as a writing project that would be seen by few others than her close relatives.

    But word spread over social media, and in just over a week more than 100,000 people had viewed Martha's stark photos of her food, sitting on a white, prison-style tray.

    Still, she could have been little prepared for the deluge of publicity on Friday, when Argyll and Bute council was forced into a humiliating climbdown over a decision to effectively close the blog, by banning photography in the school dining hall.

    By 11pm, her blog, NeverSeconds, which has drawn the support of Jamie Oliver, had attracted more than 4m page views and she had managed to raise more than £52,000 for the charity Mary's Meals

    A gaia ciência do passinho

    O passinho é atualmente a forma mais contemporânea da nossa poderosa cultura popular, ao menos no Rio. Toda forma internaliza a história, e a forma do passinho é a que contém mais elementos irredutíveis do agora: a associação com o mundo cibernético, o desdobramento do funk (que por sua vez substituiu o samba como forma popular contemporânea), a mistura de gêneros estrangeiros do momento, e, se posso arriscar, a mudança de signos no que diz respeito às relações sociais e urbanas no Rio. Esse último ponto traduz-se melhor assim: se o funk era a forma da época da presença dominadora do tráfico nas favelas, o passinho é a forma que traduz a mentalidade das UPPs, as Unidades de Polícia Pacificadora, que lhe são rigorosamente contemporâneas

    Margaret Atwood on Ray Bradbury: the tale-teller who tapped into the gothic core of America



     At the age of 12 – as he tells us on his website – he had a definitive encounter with a stage magician called Mr Electrico. This was in the age of travelling circuses and the like, and Mr Electrico had a unique act: he sat in an electrified chair, thus in turn electrifying a sword he held, with which he in turn electrified the spectators, making their hair stand on end and sparks come out of their ears. He electrified young Bradbury in this manner, while shouting, "Live Forever!" The child had to go to a funeral the next day, a close encounter with death that led him to seek out Mr Electrico once more to find out how this living forever thing was to be done. The old carney showed him around what used to be called the freak show – complete with a tattooed man who was later to morph into the Illustrated Man – and then told him that he, Ray, contained the soul of Mr Electrico's best friend, who had died in the first world war. You can see how all this would have made an impression. Right after his baptism by electricity at the hands of Mr Electrico, Bradbury started writing; nor did he stop until his own death.

    Sport v human rights


    Sports journalist and historian Mihir Bose contrasts the lip service paid to civil rights by sport officials over the last 150 years of modern sport to actions taken. Of all sporting associations, it is the rhetoric of the IOC that bears least relation to reality, he writes.


     "Sports administrators may present themselves as the Vatican of sport, beyond the control of any authority but their own. Yet the money needed to run modern sport means they have to compromise with dubious governments and regimes. The result is that the high moral purpose of sport is sacrificed if not totally ignored. And until sport can deal with this basic contradiction, problems such as Bahrain will continue to appear. The worrying thing is that few in sport seem willing or able to deal with it."
