The 5 Jews

The 5 Jews who most changed the way of seeing the World:
Moses, when he said: “The Law is everything …”;
Jesus, when he said: “Love is everything …”;
Marx, when he said: “Capital is everything …”;
Freud, when he said: “Sex is everything …”.
Then EINSTEIN came and fucked it up when he said:
“Everything is relative …” 😀

The 12 most populated locations

The 12 agglomerations most populated in the World

To your knowledge…
At 12th position is Chongqing (China), with 15,872,179 inhabitants.
The 11th is Karachi, Pakistan, reaching 16,093,786 inhabitants.
In 10th place is Osaka (Japan), with 19,165,340 inhabitants.
9th is Mumbai (India) with 20,411,274 inhabitants.
The 8th is Beijing (China) with 20,462,610 inhabitants.
China today has about 1 billion and 400 million inhabitants, almost the same population that had all the world, at the end of the XIXth century.
The 7th is Cairo (Egypt) with 20,900,604 inhabitants.
The 6th is Dhaka (Bangladesh) with 21,005,860 population.
The 5th is Mexico City with 21,782,378 inhabitants in the metropolitan area (on its way to have the same number of inhabitants as the entire Mexican Republic by the 1950’s).
The 4th is São Paulo (Brazil) with 22,043,028 inhabitants.
A city that grows at giant steps.
The third is Shanghai (China) with 27,058,480 inhabitants.
The 2nd is Delhi (India) with 30,290,936 inhabitants (India has an estimated population of 1 billion and 300 million inhabitants).
And in 1st place, the undisputed champion, is Tokyo, Japan with 37,393,128 inhabitants.
A real population explosion!
We will now make some important observations:
– No European city appears on the list. Moscow is the most populated European city (12.5 million) and ranks at 23rd.
– China has three cities with many million inhabitants:
Shanghai, Beijing and Chongqing. The three together exceed 63 million inhabitants.

Now let’s look at some aspects of the conditions in which people live in large cities, especially in Asia …

Thousands of families live here …
Transport and housing units make people feel… compressed, huddled, squeezed in small spaces.
Multifamily buildings resemble huge anthills.
A beach saturated with bathers…
Look at this saturated highway and sincerely say if it isn’t much better to live in smaller cities.
A city, for it to be “livable”, should not have more than 500 thousand inhabitants …
The Earth has space and natural resources to give healthy lives to 6 billion human beings.
Today we are already 8 billion.
And, at the current rate of growth, we will be 10 billion in 2050. There is not enough space or natural resources for all of this! Something has to be done urgently to curb and reduce population growth of human beings on Earth.

Based on the PowerPoint made by Irene Aguir, that can be found here. These are the 2020 top 12 population countries.

Climbing the Clérigos Tower in 1917

This climb, in July 1917, was celebrated in the history of our city.

Two Galician acrobats, father and son, named D. José and D. Miguel Puertullano, to promote a brand of biscuits, climbed, without any security equipment, the 76 meters high that the tower has.
Once up there, they did acrobatics on the cross that ends the tower. Before they had drank tea accompanied by such biscuits, and dropped advertising papers, part that is not seen in this little film.
Below, a huge crowd was watching all this.
To show you this adventure we have a video of about 8 minutes, made from the film at the time, by Raul de Caldevilla, unfortunately without original sound. I draw attention to the way the acrobats are dressed. Pants, shirt and even a tie!

Look at the tranquility of these artists. No ropes or protection net. The basbaques, down here, waited for the fall, and were left without that part of the show.

The Clérigos Church with its tower is the main monument in the city of Oporto. It was designed and built by Nicolao Nasoni in the 18th century.

In 1917, while this adventure was taking place, the Portuguese fought in the First World War, which would only end the following year.

Do not know the author of this text, but I thank him/her for this history sharing!


Netflix really got itself in the film business, and so this sci-fi it’s one of its offerings… Io it’s one of Jupiter’s moon and also the name of one of Zeus human passion and so this film kind of get us lost into a bit of mythology thing… I think it had more potential than this final version gives us but, nonetheless, it’s a cool film for the sci-fi freaks out there!

Covid-19 – DANGER! Read this report

IMPORTANT – Covid-19 – DANGER! Read this report

Physicians in the ICU of the MILITARY HOSPITAL *:

We want to make a cordial appeal to the common sense of people who accepted the lack of confinement as if the pandemic had ended and as if we had returned to normalcy before the start of this crisis.

Infecting with the coronavirus is not a common cold:

There are high fevers, sore throats and tightness in the chest to the point that life seems to be going away and the worst is there;

Resuscitation is required.

* There is talk of ventilation, but it is NOT an oxygen mask placed on your mouth and nose, while you have fun thinking about your life, no!

Invasive ventilation for COVID-19 is intubation that is done under general anesthesia and consists of staying for at least 2 to 3 weeks without moving, usually on your stomach (prone position) with a tube in your mouth to the trachea, which allows you to breathe in the rhythm of the machine to which it is connected. You cannot talk, eat or do anything naturally because the discomfort and pain you feel requires the administration of sedatives and painkillers to ensure tolerance to the tube.

During the time the patient needs the machine to breathe, he will be in an induced coma, that is, in an artificial coma.

In 20 days with this treatment, a young patient will have a loss of muscle mass of 40% and the subsequent re-education will be 6 to 12 months, associated with severe trauma to the mouth or vocal cords. It is for this reason that the elderly or people fragile in their health do not last. If you have read this message so far, we would appreciate it if you shared it so that we can all take it seriously now that it is coming out again. Follow the instructions and remember that you need to be taken much more seriously.

This pandemic ends when the vaccine is found, NOT BEFORE.

Thank you for spreading it.
