THE NEW PLACES CLASSIFIED BY UNESCO AS WORLD HERITAGE

Recently, the Committee decided to open up to new categories such as cultural landscapes and routes, industrial heritage (for example, this year, Ivrea, the industrial city of the 20th century, in Italy), deserts, marine sites coastal and small island sites, so that the list is more diverse and more representative of World Heritage. The sites proposed for inscription must meet at least one of the ten selection criteria, such as, for example, representing a masterpiece of human creative genius, testifying to an exchange of influences during History, to bear exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to a living or extinct civilization, or else to represent natural phenomena of exceptional beauty and aesthetic importance or, of course, to be eminently representative examples of ecological and biological processes …
Italy is the country with the largest number (54), followed by China (53), Spain (47), France (44), Germany (44), and finally, Mexico (35).

Saúde 24 Sénior – Free

UM SERVIÇO GRATUITO
MUITO ÚTIL – Divulgar
Há um serviço que acho que todos com mais de 65 anos deveriam conhecer e utilizar.
É um serviço da Direção Geral de Saúde, Saúde 24 sénior.

Quem tiver mais de 65 anos, utilize, quem tiver menos, terá uns pais ou familiares que o podem aproveitar.

Ligamos para o 808242424e dizemos que nos queremos inscrever na saúde sénior. Posteriormente alguém nos ligará e faz uma breve história clínica com levantamento das necessidades, não só de saúde mas tem a preocupação de perceber se a pessoa está orientada no tempo e no espaço e se tem propensão para quedas.

Passamos a ser contactados de 15 em 15 dias, mais ou menos:
perguntam sobre a medicação, sobre a atividade física, alimentação.

Se entretanto tivermos dúvidas sobre saúde, se cairmos ou nos acontecer qualquer coisa podemos telefonar.
Por exemplo, estamos sozinhos em casa, caímos e ficamos magoados… Ligamos o 808242424 e eles enviam uma ambulância e contactam o hospital para dizer que vamos a caminho.

Funciona em todo o país.
Acho um serviço exemplar e que deve ser divulgado e utilizado.

Wojnarowicz: F–k You F-ggot F–ker

The life of a revolutionary visual artist.
I knew little or nothing about David Wojnarowicz’s work, to my regret… It was with great pleasure that I now know his work.
A unique life, with a lot of toil and struggle, both with himself and with society.
A soul disfigured by life, but strengthened by art and the will to be.
I strongly recommend the documentary to everyone, because those who know him will perhaps better understand its path and those who do not know him will be able to exalt such a great work.

Last night I was standing around here looking at my photographs! They’re my life and I don’t know what to anybody to distort that, just for their comfort. Testing one, two, three…

Death to 2021

Here’s a film that, with an excellent dose of irony, some idiocy, and a good deal of barbs for society, gives us a summary of the year 2021.
For me, it felt like 2021 got by running, but as I reviewed some of the events, I realized that it was much longer than I initially realized.
Nonetheless, if you want a 2021 retrospective with intelligence and humor, I strongly recommend this film (or is it a mini-film)?!…

Campeones

And there you have it, an amazing Spanish movie, about the most one-of-a-kind basketball team!

The story reminds us about the struggles in life, but the most important of it all is how we can surpass them with hope and a lot of work! We just have to believe in ourselves. And all these actors are the proof of it!

Congratulations to each and every one of you: José de Luna, Sergio Olmo, Jesús Vidal, Gloria Ramos, Alberto Nieto Ferrández, Julio Fernández, Jesús Lago, Fran Fuentes, Roberto Chinchilla e Stefan López.

They had unique co-stars also: Javier Gutiérrez, Athenea Mata e Juan Margallo that helped bring to almost real-life this amazing movie!

All, and I reinforce the ALL of you out there must watch this one and rejoice with the beauty and performances of all these actors.

Felicidades!

La vida es solo una… Vive hoy

Supernova

Supernova is a star that reaches its peak and explodes into billions of small particles that will become life in another part of the cosmos.
This film takes us on a journey of love, sharing, remembering, wanting, leaving… And it leads us to an interior supernova.
A beautiful and pure love written in the stars of the night, in the Milky Way that not only encompasses the heavenly vault but is also inscribed in the core of each one of us!
The beauty of the photography in this film is idyllic, the landscapes are breathtaking, so beautiful and poetic the way they are screened to us and the soundtrack lulls us into a story shared by the road not only of the journey itself but also of the journey of Life!
The intensity of the story is sometimes stifling, as we feel so much in the skin of each of the protagonists, Sam and Tusker!
The brilliant work of the actors, Colin Firth and Stanley Tucci is chilling… The faithful delivery of a story that can be as real as it is vivid!
A delight and a grip are feelings that pervade us at the end of this film.
I do recommend it.

“We will not starve for lack of wonders, but from lack of wonder.”

The Velvet Underground

Whether you like or hate them, The Velvet Underground documentary it’s a piece of art!

History is exposed in this doc, not only the bands but also the 60’s explosion of art in its most ubiquity… The caldron that fostered miscegenation of arts was presented in the form of a unique band, The Velvet Underground!

To find the roots of alternative music in all its aspects within this doc!

Sunday morning, brings the dawn in
It’s just a restless feeling by my side
Early dawning, Sunday morning
It’s just the wasted years so close behind
