White & Blue Eyed Bankers to Blame for Crash

Pedras no Caminho



"Pedras no caminho? Guardo todas.
Um dia vou construir um castelo."


- Fernando Pessoa -

No puedo


“No puedo darte soluciones para todos tus problemas
ni tengo respuestas para todas tus dudas, ni temores
pero puedo escucharte..y buscarlas contigo.

no puedo cambiar tu pasado, ni tu futuro
pero cuando me necesites aquí estaré contigo.

no puedo evitar que tropieces
solo puedo ofrecerte mi mano para que te sujetes y no te caigas.

Tus alegrias, tus triunfos y tus logros no son mios
pero disfruto sinceramente cuando te veo feliz.

No juzgo las decisiones que tomastes en la vida
me limito a apoyarte, estimularte y ayudarte si así me lo pides.

tambien no puedo trazarte limites dentro de los cuales
debes actuar, pero si te ofrezco el espacio necesario para crecer.

No puedo eitar tus sufrimientos
cuando una pena te parte el corazon
pero puedo llorar contigo y recoger los pedazos
para armarlo de nuevo.

No puedo decirte quien eres
ni quien deberias de ser.
Solamente puedo quererte tal como eres
y ser tan solo un amigo”.

- Jorge Luís Borges -

Pense Nisso!

O Amor

"Quando encontrar alguém e esse alguém fizer
seu coração parar de funcionar por alguns segundos,
preste atenção: pode ser a pessoa
mais importante da sua vida.

Se os olhares se cruzarem e, neste momento,
houver o mesmo brilho intenso entre eles,
fique alerta: pode ser a pessoa que você está
esperando desde o dia em que nasceu.

Se o toque dos lábios for intenso,
se o beijo for apaixonante,
e os olhos se encherem d'água neste momento,
perceba: existe algo mágico entre vocês.

Se o 1º e o último pensamento do seu dia
for essa pessoa, se a vontade de ficar
juntos chegar a apertar o coração,
agradeça: Algo do céu te mandou
um presente divino : O AMOR.

Se um dia tiverem que pedir perdão um
ao outro por algum motivo e, em troca,
receber um abraço, um sorriso, um afago nos cabelos
e os gestos valerem mais que mil palavras,
entregue-se: vocês foram feitos um pro outro.

Se por algum motivo você estiver triste,
se a vida te deu uma rasteira e a outra pessoa
sofrer o seu sofrimento, chorar as suas
lágrimas e enxugá-las com ternura, que
coisa maravilhosa: você poderá contar com ela
em qualquer momento de sua vida.

Se você conseguir, em pensamento, sentir
o cheiro da pessoa como se ela estivesse ali do seu lado...

Se você achar a pessoa maravilhosamente linda,
mesmo ela estando de pijamas velhos,
chinelos de dedo e cabelos emaranhados...

Se você não consegue trabalhar direito o dia todo,
ansioso pelo encontro que está marcado para a noite...

Se você não consegue imaginar, de maneira
nenhuma, um futuro sem a pessoa ao seu lado...

Se você tiver a certeza que vai ver a outra
envelhecendo e, mesmo assim, tiver a convicção
que vai continuar sendo louco por ela...


Se você preferir fechar os olhos, antes de ver
a outra partindo: é o amor que chegou na sua vida.


Muitas pessoas apaixonam-se muitas vezes na vida
poucas amam ou encontram um amor verdadeiro.
Às vezes encontram e, por não prestarem atenção
nesses sinais, deixam o amor passar,
sem deixá-lo acontecer verdadeiramente.

É o livre-arbítrio. Por isso, preste atenção nos sinais.
Não deixe que as loucuras do dia-a-dia o deixem
cego para a melhor coisa da vida: o AMOR !!! "

- Carlos Drumond de Andrade -

March 22th, World Water Day


The international observance of World Water Day is an initiative that grew out of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in Rio de Janeiro. The United Nations General Assembly designated 22 March of each year as the World Day for Water by adopting a resolution.This world day for water was to be observed starting in 1993, in conformity with the recommendations of the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development contained in chapter 18 (Fresh Water Resources) of Agenda 21. States were invited to devote the Day to implement the UN recommendations and set up concrete activities as deemed appropriate in the national context.



Save water, save the planet!

GOCE launch

oceanic streams map
European Space Agency (ESA) is about to launch the most sophisticated of Earth Observation satellites to investigate the Earth’s gravitational field with unprecedented resolution and accuracy, the GOCE (Gravity field and steady-state Ocean Circulation Explorer). Liftoff is scheduled for 15:21 CET on Monday, 16 March 2009, from the Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia.
GOCE data will be crucial for obtaining accurate measurements of ocean circulation and sea-level change, both of which are affected by climate change. The data will help to better understand processes occurring inside the Earth which are linked to volcanoes and earthquakes.

Ronaldo Fenómeno

In relation to Manchester Uniteds announcement about selling a new shirt saying ”There's only one Ronaldo”, the brazilian team Corinthians will do the same on Wednesday in support of the only Ronaldo: o FENÔMENO.

The text on the T-shirt is:

”There is only one Ronaldo that scored 3 goals against Manchester United at Old Trafford,
won 3 times the FIFA World Player of the Year award;
Won 2 FIFA World Cup titles,
Is the greatest scorer in FIFA World Cup history
Had 3 unexpected comebacks"

What is "Generation Y"?

What is Generation Y?

Hmm, I've always wondered this myself.
Now I know.

- The Silent generation, people born before 1946.

- The Baby Boomers, people born between 1946 and 1959.

- Generation X, people born between 1960 and 1979.

- Generation Y, people born between 1980 and 1995

Why do we call the last one generation Y? I did not know, but a cartoonist explains it eloquently below...Learned something new today!

Os degraus

Não desças os degraus do sonho
Para não despertares os monstros.

Não subas aos sótãos - onde os deuses,
por trás das suas máscaras,
ocultam o próprio enigma.

Não desças,
não subas,
fica.

O mistério está é na tua vida!
E é um sonho louco este nosso mundo...

New office policy

NEW OFFICE POLICY

Dress Code:

1) You are advised to come to work dressed according to your salary.

2) If we see you wearing Prada shoes and carrying a Gucci bag, we will assume you are doing well financially and therefore do not need a raise.

3) If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes, and therefore you do not need a raise.

4) If you dress just right, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a raise.

Sick Days:

We will no longer accept a doctor's statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

Personal Days:

Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturdays & Sundays.

Bereavement Leave:

This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should be made to have non-employees attend the funeral arrangements in your place. In rare cases where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be scheduled in the late afternoon. We will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour early.

Bathroom Breaks:

Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilet. There is now a strict three-minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door will open, and a picture will be taken. After your second offense, your picture will be posted on the company bulletin board under the 'Chronic Offenders' category. Anyone caught smiling in the picture will be sectioned under the company's mental health policy.

Lunch Break:

* Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch, as they need to eat more, so that they can look healthy.

* Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to get abalanced meal to maintain their average figure.

* Chubby people get 5 minutes for lunch, because that's all the time needed to drink a Slim-Fast.


Thank you for your loyalty to our company. We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all questions, comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternation and input should be directed elsewhere.

Thomas Jefferson, 207 years ago

- Thomas Jefferson -
by Charles William Peale, 1791
"I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their currency, first by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around the banks will deprive the people of all property until their children wake-up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered."

Thomas Jefferson, 1802

########################################

Traduzindo:

"Acredito que as instituições bancárias são mais perigosas para as nossas liberdades do que o levantamento de exércitos. Se o povo Americano alguma vez permitir que bancos privados controlem a emissão da sua moeda, primeiro pela inflação, e depois pela deflação, os bancos e as empresas que crescerão à roda dos bancos despojarão o povo de toda a propriedade até os seus filhos acordarem sem abrigo no continente que os seus pais conquistaram."

Thomas Jefferson, 1802
