My Happy New Year



So it's 30 December 2011 and I'm thinking of what I'm going to do to celebrate the New Year Bash...until now (and certainly until the end of 2011) I haven't received any invitation to a party or just to get out. I used to have a very full contact list in my cell phone but I decided to delete some useless contacts of the persons that never said anything to me...the tough part is that most part of those contacts were from persons who said they were my friends but especially this year simply forgot me ignoring me.
I wonder why I still have a cell phone, really 'cause nobody calls me and I don't call anybody, although I have free calls and free text messages from most part of them and vice versa.
So they just don't call me because they forgot me, they don't need me and so they don't like me.
I found out that the worst way, it was a simple test I did to make sure it was a real friendship: I just stop bothering them making notice of my existence: no text messages, no facebook likes or comments, no internet conversations...and this year I never asked anybody to go out...and I haven't got any invitations to go out too. I just can't find anybody to invite to go out to celebrate the New Year because I just don't feel like ask them out after their months of disregard: it's clear they will party and they all forgot me.
I knew persons who said they were my friends (and some of them who I used to hang out since I was a kid: we are neighbors and we were school mates since we were 5 years old!) that make New Year Parties since ever and always count me off the list.
It's okay, in a way, now I'm sure of who I can't definitelly count with, I'll just forget them and move on, there will be no chance of reconciliation for us because they're not interested on it and because I don't want waste anymore time with them too.
I just don't get it: why I took so much time to see they were worthless and why the hell they wanted me as their friend if they weren't my friends?
You know, true friends do things together and enjoy each other's company...don't disregard them! So they don't need me, funny fact is, I didn't miss them too...but sometimes, times like this, I want to get out and celebrate, to drink champagne under the firework and ask for wishes with friends laughing along...even the anti-socials need to socialize sometimes, especially when the entire world is having a blast out there!
I'm too a very suspicious person about the others, I don't let anyone getting close to me...so when people I thought they were my friends let me down at this point, it kinda hurts!
I don't wanna be at home getting depressed asking my own questions on and on of: "why does everybody have friends to hang out with and I don't?", "why are my social relationships so disastrous"?
I can stay at home having pitty of myself while my ex-friends do a great New year Party in the building right in front of my flat, but I feel like celebrating it out of my home, even if I have to do it all alone.
In fact this year I did a lot of stuff  alone: I spent for the 2nd time my birthday alone 'cause I couldn't make new friends in 1 year, I went to a manifestation alone for the 1st time 'cause I don't know interesting people who want to change the world, I went to several concerts on my own, I went to the cinema alone...
I'd like to go to a disco club or a nightlife spot but I won't do that alone. Anyway my ex-friends were not the type of getting out at night, in fact they were not the kind of getting out at all, and those who were didn't invite me.
This year, despite of losing all my "friends", it pretty rocked for me, I saw a lot of concerts and my favourite artists of all types of music: my chemical romance (my favourite band), 30 seconds to mars, foo fighters, coldplay, anna calvi, patrick wolf, paramore, kaiser chiefs, white lies, iggy pop, katy perry, britney spears, within tempation, smashing pumpkins (just the best known). I rarely had friends near me at that times, and the ones I had now don't care about me.
So what can I say? I have a quite amusing life just ain't got nobody to spend time with.
So I just wish 2012 brings me good music and new friends because when you lose a fake friend you sure lose nothing at all so there's no need to be sad any longer!
Let's just rock out in 2012! :)

The Protester: The Person of the Year 2011


So we're getting close to the time we change the year from 2011 to 2012, and according to Mayas it is the last one.
I'm not superstitious but I don't exclude the possibility of the world coming to an end near: a simple collision with an asteroid could do the job, but there is too the possibility of nuclear disasters...so we all should become free from nuclear, it is something that will leave toxic waste for millions of years corroding planet Earth and it's dangerous.
What I think about 2012 is a bit like the Maya civilization: the world will end, but not in a way it wil disappear in a way it will change.
I think the world as we know it will change, we could see it in 2011: people are finally waking up and trying to understand what is happening around, they finally are getting along together more than ever, they join to discuss about the world's problems, they go to the streets protesting and they had serious vitories, as we can see in the Middle East, the people revolted against their dictators and demanded the right to have a democracy where they could chose their government and they could have free speech (although I get a bit sad for the way americans and europeans "helped" them doing the revolution like in Lybia, I think it's not destroying the countries making war we can help them!).
Anyway in 2011 people raised their voices all around: from the arabic spring movements that overthrew dictatorships with decades, until the movement Occupy Wall Street and the Movement of Indignants worldwide that gather forces against the bankers dictatorships until the recent protests in Russia against corruption in elections.
So the protesters were for sure the figure of the year 2011, as the magazine Times elected.
People are making the difference by taking responsible individual actions and they started thinking by themselves and took a stand fighting for something.
 People are making the change on their own and that's great!
We all know we make part of a system that doesn't serve our interests, we don't believe in governments anymore and we want to stop corruption...this means that we are involved in a big change, a global change and we no longer will quit...all the people in the world is starting to understand and acting...the governments and bankers are afraid, 'cause they know they won't stop the whole humanity!
People are tired of wars, of the lies of the politians, people are tired of living in an unequal and unfair world...now they wanna change this, and now they believe!
In 2011 the world lost lots of dictators, and right now, in all countries we demand a true democracy in the world even in those countries that say the have democracy and after all don't care about people needs but they obbey to the bankers and the stock market, people just don't agree the way politicians are dealing with the problem because they know they don't want to defend their interests but yes the interests of the powefull ones.
More and more people are becoming more ecological and really want to save Earth, there are more and more nature activists and more and more animal lovers and vegetarians and vegans.
So I'm sure 2012 will be different for better, a lot of revolutions will happen and it will turn the world in a better place.

Happy 2012!

Take a stand against anti-wolf legislation

Ok! I think I'll just stop trying to understand people, and humanity in general, they're just stupid!
Really! I have serious difficulties in applying the word humans to humans themselves!

Here's another example of wickedness I found out in the facebook, it's an american page anti-wolf and wild animals (click: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sky-Country-Journal/151149468253345).
Basically they argue that they are doing good killing wild animals such us the wolves and the hunters even receive money for the killing.
See this picture below:


Yes it's a family, happy for killing the wolves, with their children happy too! This is so sick, this persons are so so sick!
And the legend of the image in that facebook page is even more sick: "Thanks Idaho for Wildlife for passing along this photo of Alberta wolf hunters saving some wildlife."


But it's an even more deep question, some members of the U.S congress want to approve a law to prevent wolves from being protected under the Endangered Species Act. What's the point your blooody bastards?

The Defenders of WildlifeAction  Fund already took a stand against that anti-wolf legislation and made a petition sign online that is being very successful but still needs a few more signatures to reach the goal of 80 000 signatures.
Please sign!

I wish people start respecting wild life and animals in general, instead of killing and destroying everything, I just wish people stop being heartless!

misanthropic state of mind




I like being alone but sometimes it gets a little boring and

gloomy, so I start socializing, but then I get annoyed with all 

that idiots on my way so I come back to my loneliness again.

Vatican Christmas tree is decorated with gold and silver


That's it the super super rich independent state of Vatican, where is the headquarter of catholicism, has a very fancy christmas tree with 25 meters well decoarted with 2 500 balls made of gold and silver!
So the Pope this year condemned the consumerism around the Christmas season but it makes sense to him to have such an ostensive christmas tree full of gold and silver! Why don't they just sell that frivolous material and give that money to poor ones? Because they're all the time condemning the greed, the luxury, the selfishness, the ostentaion...after all you pray for the poor ones and say they will receive Heaven, in all Bible the kind of ostensive way of life Vatican had and still having is criticized...I mean does people really read the Bible? I am heretic and I read the Bible!
 Honestly worshipping Catholism is insane! How can people still believe in Catholic church after all that scandals, bloody and intolerant History and all their contradictions between what they do and what they preach?
I really know, fortunately I'm herectic!

Merry Christmas!


My Christmas everyone!
Hope you have a great time alone or with family and avoid the stupid familiar discussions, also I would suggest you to not eat meat: don't eat the christmas crib and become vegetarian.
Well I haven't  done anything for this christmas, I not even decorated the christmas year ( for years I don't do that), anyway the fact is that I didn't do anything yet, not even help people...college is absorbing so much of my time that when my classes finished at 22nd December I was totally lost of what to do next.
But we should help people and not even just in Christmas.
Besides being with family there's no other reason that makes me like Christmas: the capitalist frenzy at the malls, the imperative of buy, buy buy! And the fact it's a christian tradition inspired in paganism to celebrate the winter solstice. The modern christmas is all about capitalism, a Santa Claus dressed in red was an invention from Coc Cola.
Anyway it's good to have a diffferent season in the year, and after this one I sure have to spend a lot of time at the gym!

last year I wrote a letter to Santa: http://celta-myuniverse.blogspot.com/2010/12/my-letter-to-santa-claus.html
I asked him for good friends, is not that I haven't go anyone, the fact is that I have few persons to make things that I like and invite me over...the fact is that I feel alone and strange most part of the time...surprisingly I don't like it at all, but being around with silly persons just doesn't match with me and all this year I've been avoiding everyone and I didn't make a single effort to meet new persons. To be honest, I even lost some of my social connections...right now I don't know who I can call a friend but to be honest I'm not a friend of anyone too.
This year I was a completely outsider, most part of time alone and I just don't know how to get along with the others again. I've been wishing all the years to meet fun, interesting and inteligent people to talk to and to get out...but I can't see anyone, so I just quit. Yeah  I quit!

What I would ask to santa Claus if he actually existed?
I would like there's no kids on the streets living alone, I would like people stop mistreating children and animals and more and more people become vegetarians, I would like to all the world got involved in environmental issues and we all try to get to agreements and solutions to save Earth, and I would like the that the corruption is criminalized and people stop paying for corrupted banks and politicians bad actions, that there's no poor and super riches, I would like to people to stop using fur and I would like too the end of starvation and enslavement in the world.

It's a big wish I know!

Merry Christmas believers!

My letter to Rihanna



Dear Rihanna

I heard that last saturday you had a great show in Lisbon, inclusively you said on your twitter that "Portugal was legandary". The concert was sold out with 20 000 people, I bet it was great and wish you had a great time in Lisbon.
I thought if I should go or not to your show, trust me I would like to go, but then I decided to not go because you wear fur and I don't want to contribute for your bloody wardrobe.
So for someone that was beaten before by a man, you should know what suffer and pain is...and trust me those  animals suffered a lot being skinned alive just to make your fur coats.
So it would be great if you just gain a bit of kindness in your heart and stop buying and wearing fur...then I would go to your shows. It's a good idea fans stop going to shows whose artists use fur...
So I just wish you to stop using fur.

Best wishes for a cruelty free future of yours.

With hope

Celta

In Hungary being homeless is crime


Let me get this right: in Hungary (Europe) being homeless is a crime?
So if you're one of that unlucky persons with no money and no house, besides being arrested (because you're poor and so you haven't the right to live) you have to pay!
Read here: https://apps.facebook.com/petitions/takeaction/721/472/797/
So this is how the modern society do it: in Colombia government pays  militias to kill homeless because for them they're rubbish (http://celta-myuniverse.blogspot.com/2011/11/combian-militias-clean-streets-killing.html), and in the developed Europe being an homeless is a crime.
See how modern society deals with people? if you're miserable and poor you're tretaed like rubbish, everybody will pretend that didn't see you but at the same will feel unconfortable...but you're rich everybody will receive you well, admire you.
Instead of helping and insert people on society, society seems just despise homeless people and exterminate them.
This is so sick!

It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick 


society. Krishnamurti

Canada quits the Kyoto Protocol


Here's the disppointtment of the year: after the Climate Conference in Durban, South Africa, Canada says that will stop following the Kyoto Protcol, which we all know was made with the purpose of control the greenhouse gases and invest in renewable and clean energies in order to avoid the rising of temperatures and the dramatically change in climate standards. Canada government says that the Kyoto Protocol is useless singe U.S.A and China, the two bigest world polluters refuse to sign and follow it (China says that will sign if USA signs it) and so Canada doesn't want to harm its (dirty) economy too...
SO WHAT'S THE PLAN? LET'S BURN AS MUCH AS FOSSIL FUELS AS WE CAN IN ORDER TO HAVE A WEALTH ECONOMY DURING A FEW YEARS AND SCREW ALL THE EARTH'S FUTURE?
MOST LIKELY...
How governments can be so greed: put the economy (based in dirty energy sources) first than the future of the Earth and inclusively the future of humanity?
Why care about winning more money now if we're moving up to a situation where economy would mean nothing 'cause it will be no money, no countries, no civilizations, no humans...and most shocking: no life on Earth! WHY? REALLY I CANNOT UNDERSTAND!
WHAT'S NEXT? MAYBE MORE COUNTRIES WILL DROP KYOTO?
If that happens listen up: we're screwed people!
THIS IS A DEATH SENTENCE TO HUMANITY!
C'mon it's such a frivolous thing to compete with other's economy when we have the future of everythins is in risk!!!
We can change the engine of economies and free from oil...but we got to start investing in what matters! Why are countries invading other countries and making wars and killing people when we could use that money to invest in green energy?
Why does USA invest so much money in the military and wars instead of sign the Kyoto protocol and start using well the citizen's money?

Despite of all my sadness and gloom I tried to believe a better future is possible, I want to believe; really I try to not quit this...but what we're seeing is a stupid humanity solding out Earth resources without caring about the future of Earth, biodiversity and humanity! I really can't understand what's the point of all that but this is the most selfish generation of humans...we're leading ourselves to the global annihilation,and we know that but seems like people don't care 'cause they think they will be dead by the time...and so they don't care about the next generations as long as they have lived their lives! It's shameful since all the previous human civilizations tried to improve the human science and history, cretaing cultures, languages, music and caring about giving the next generation what they learnt before...what this generation of humans will give the next generations? a dead planet!
WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF TIME...AND ALL YOU SEEM TO BE DOING IS QUITTING ON THE FUTURE AND HAVE AN APOCALYPSE PARTY!


The most heartbreaking thing that can happen is see the end of life on Earth caused by stupid greed humans!
I wish I will not be here...poor little childs that this adults put on the world...

Like Einstein said: the human stupidity is infinite! He was right...

German Catholic Church tries to sell its porn(!?!!!) editor


When I thought that after all that pedophilia scandals (that lots of priests and even the pope tried to hide for years) I thought my disregard for Catholic Church couldn't get so low but that's when it get even lower: catholic church is envolved in the porn industry...at least one filial, a german filial of the catholic church. Now the editor of  porn industry is for sale to avoid the scandal and protect the german pope Ratzinger.
I'm in shock right now but this only shows how rotten and hypocritical catholic church is...fact that I discovered when I was 12 years old and proclaimed myself agnostic and said that I wanted to get out of catholicism..decision that was not approved by my family and only after several rebellions I could get out of that place and institution which I'm ashamed of have belonged.


"One of Germany's largest publishing companies, Weltbild, has over 2,500 erotic novels in its online catalogue. Its owned 100 percent by the German Catholic Church.
Worldcrunchsummarizing an article by German newspaper Die Welt, says that for over 10 years Catholics have complained about the company, which has been owned by the church for over 30 years. 
Die Welt reports that the situation came to light after a report this month mentioned the erotica distributed by Weltbild. 
Weltbild has an annual turnover of €1.7 billion ($2.4 billion) and has a 20 percent market share when it comes to selling books. That makes it the second largest online retailer of books behind Amazon.
The church also owns a 50 percent stake in publishing company Droemer Knaur, which also produces pornographic book
Now, amid the scandal, the German Catholic church has withdrawn its investment in the publishing company. It is looking for a buyer as soon as possible.


The Local reports that Weltbild initially removed some 2,500 erotic titles from its online catalogue, but the church has now decided to distance itself from the publisher completely.

However, the decision could have come sooner for some Catholics. Last month German publication Die Welt reported that some worshipers had been complaining about the church's association with the pornographic publications for over 10 years only to be ignored by bishops."

Fado is world heritage



Fado the song of Lisbon is now too a song of the world.
Fado is a portuguese music genre and it was added last saturday  (27th November 2011) to Unesco's list of of World's Intangible Cultural Heritage.

On its website, UNESCO describes Fado as the”urband popular song of Portugal,” stating
"Fado is a performance genre incorporating music and poetry widely practised by various communities in Lisbon. It represents a Portuguese multicultural synthesis of Afro-Brazilian sung dances, local traditional genres of song and dance, musical traditions from rural areas of the country brought by successive waves of internal immigration, and the cosmopolitan urban song patterns of the early nineteenth century. Fado songs are usually performed by a solo singer, male or female, traditionally accompanied by a wire-strung acoustic guitar and the Portuguese guitarra – a pear-shaped lute with twelve wire strings, unique to Portugal, which also has an extensive solo repertoire. The past few decades have witnessed this instrumental accompaniment expanded to two Portuguese guitars, a guitar and a bass guitar. Fado is performed professionally on the concert circuit and in small ‘Fado houses’, and by amateurs in numerous grass-root associations located throughout older neighbourhoods of Lisbon. Informal tuition by older, respected exponents takes place in traditional performance spaces and often over successive generations within the same families. The dissemination of Fado through emigration and the world music circuit has reinforced its image as a symbol of Portuguese identity, leading to a process of cross-cultural exchange involving other musical traditions."
Fado is about the lusitan soul, it calls for a longing feeling called saudade, a word that has no translation and it's unique in the portuguese language. Sometimes it can be a bit blue and bring us to tears but fado is not always sad or mournful, tehre are some happy songs too.
The sound of Fado is unique due too the sound of our unique portuguese guitarr:
There are too genious of this kind of guitarr that make the music so wonderful, onde of them was Carlos Paredes:
As singers of fado our symbol of Fado is Amalia Rodrigues, but nowadays there are too several good singers like Mariza, Ana Moura, Carminho, Cuca Roseta, Camané, Carlos do carmo, Kátia Guerreiro, Raquel Tavares, Mafalda Arnauth...
Here's some of my best Fado songs, take a listen:
1- Mariza singing "Gente da Minha Terra", it means "people from my country"
2- Mariza singing "Rosa Branca"
3- Ana Moura singing Rumo ao Sul

God's throne

Here's God's empty throne...he left this place  a long time ago 


Sometimes I think that if there is a God he probably should exterminate humanity as fast as a faint whisper (they would not even notice) for the evil and pain it's caused for them in Nature, animals and even themselves...instead He just seem that walked away heartbroken...will He ever come back?


I'll let you with this music of the Extreme, "God isn't dead"


"Ah, look at all the lonely people, losing faith, in a world full of despair,no one who cares, wondering whereGOD disappearedI, see the pain, in everybody's faces asking why, the GOD up in the sky,didn't say goodbye, please tell me, GOD didn't die"
Will there be a benevolent God? will there be an evil Stan? will this two forces be the same?I'll let you with the amazing song of Biffy Clyro expressing this feeling:

I talk to God as much as I talk to Satan'cause I want to hear both sidesDoes that make me cynical?There are no miracles and this is no miraculous life
I savour hate as much as I crave lovebecause I'm just a twisted guy
Is this the pinnacle, is this the pinnaclethe pinnacle of being alive?
Now I see the light
Well I look up to God but I see trouble'cause this ain't a miracle
I just want to take my chanceto live through a miracle
I know for certain that someone is watching
but is it from up or down?I make you miserable, you stick with me although you know I'm gonna ruin your life
I talk to God as much as I talk to Satan 'cause I want to hear both sides
Does that make me cynical?There are no miracles and this is no miraculous life
We walk into the tide
Well I look up to God but I see trouble'cause this ain't a miracleI just want to take my chance to live through a miracle
When the seesaw snaps and splinters your hand don't come crying to me
I'll only see your good side and believe it's a miracle a miracle
I slap the water and watch the fish dance to the ripples of us
We're just dull blue duds blinking eyes encased in rust
This ain't a miracle, this ain't a miracle This ain't a miracle, this ain't a miracle

Beagle dogs released from animal testing laboratories are free now

Beagle dogs were rescued by the "Beagle Freedom project" from a medical testing laboratory after being living for years in steel cages only getting out of it to be tested and feel pain.
These dogs had never seen the outdoors, walked on grass or felt a gentle touch, they had also been de-barked so they don't disturb people from the laboratory.
 This video captures their first steps into a kind world and it's very touching to see that dogs running free out of the hell they lived and they would still living if they haven't been saved by these people.
I must thank these kind people from the bottom of my heart for saving these little and innicent creatures, people like you make me still hopin' humans can change and be like true humans. Also we all have to make sure we don't use products tested in animals and claim industries for cruelty free processes.

Fitch downgrades Portugal to junk status


Yipee we're junk again!
Well I'm just writing this about Fitch rating agency because Moodys have done the same to Portugal too a few months ago and I wrote a post about that too:http://celta-myuniverse.blogspot.com/2011/07/moodys-rating-agency-lows-to-junk-level.html
So next time other reputable agency like Standard & Poors does the same I will not write anything anymore, I'm kind of tired of all that thing of rating agencies.
So we are financial waste, we are junk, our economy sucks, do not invest in Portugal...I mean do not invest in our sovereign debt...yeh if you're an investor don't apply that money in our debts, that's stupid...in my oponion buy sovereign debts is stupid anyway, this is only a speculative mechanism...the financial world transformed itself in a casino game...with lots of gains for the winners players and lots of losses for unlucky gamblers ...the problem is that what was bet by the gamblers were our future, our homes, our jobs, our saving in the banks and now USA which rating agencies are attacking Europe all the time have dumped entire families from their houses for not paying loans to the bank, and then the same banks can't afford the taxes so they sell houses for 1 buck http://celta-myuniverse.blogspot.com/2011/07/have-buck-buy-house.html and people who had a job now live on tunnels and sewers...in the USA http://celta-myuniverse.blogspot.com/2011/11/is-this-american-dream-sewer-cities.html
Oh please TV talks all the time about crisis, recession rating agencies, and sovereign debt crisis, and the "help" of International Monetary Fund, the financial markets who we should obey...but does anyone care about telling people who are the markets? why are they so important? how we get to this low point? does anyone explained people what is the IMF? does anyone explained why what rating agencies say is such a big deal? NOOOO instead TV shows us this situation as inevitable...and that's pretty much just it.
Besides all that Fitch praises us for our efforts cutting on our State Budget...and they put us in junk level? it's a contradiction...
My opinion is that Rating Agencies and the Financial Markets with no face, stock exchanges are nothing but the symbols of the new financial capitalism.
Rating Agencies have the power to decide everything (the fall of states like Greece for example) and the Markets (we hear them talking about financial markets as divine entities...it's crazy) are the new global dictators...they have no face and are protected by our governments that we thought should represent us and not be against us.
As the result? someone is doing a big big businness out of this, and has no name or face...we call them the 1%. One thing is sure the money didn't get away, it just changed hands, now the banks are out of our savings and we have to put the robbed money stolen by some sort of divine financial entitie back on banks. And we just swallow up the lie?
I just can't believe in an economy that is not even explained how it works to its citizens...and I'm sure they don't want us to know how it works...we would be stunned.
So keep rating pals we don't care about your rates!

Homeless kids in USA and UK


Then I found a video that said that Britain have the highest population in Europe and 15% of them are homeless children (see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=l6-0sbqVqTk#!). I must confess that I hardly can believe there are homeless kids in Britain, all I know is what I read in Courrier International Magazine that said that the number of homeless people and people living in improvised sheds is really increasing in London.
But I searched and foud this article about homeless kids in the sun newspaper: http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/woman/real_life/article2314039.ece
The principal causes for homeless children are: arson, domestic violence, immigration and bankruptcy of families due to the economica recession.

I found this page on the internet that says that there are about 16 000 homeless children in LA alone!http://www.squidoo.com/homeless2hopeful

I wrote a post about homeless kids in Colombia thinking it was an isolated case: http://www.squidoo.com/homeless2hopeful because I always thought this sort of things only happened in underdeveloped countries but now I realize it happens too in Europe and in USA, in developed countries too which means that we're building a less and less fair and equal society where rich people get richer and poor people are getting poor.
We can see the big Nation of USA, being the 1st economy in the world, spending millions on wars and turning back their citizens needs.
In UK we see a monarchy idolized and loved but that don't have a single word to say about this inhumane situations people live, at the same time people have to pay monarchy taxes for they live in opolunce hidden from the truth in their palaces thinking of what millionaire dress they will wear next charity dinner...http://celta-myuniverse.blogspot.com/2011/06/royal-solidarity.html
The world is ver very hypocrite!

ukrainian teenagers torture and kill dogs just for fun


Today I got a newsletter from Care2 petition site I got shocked again!
So I've warn here in my blogue that Ukraine is killing stray dogs (specially burning them alive in mobile ovens and shooting them) in a cleaning process to receive the Euro football event in 2012. Read here: http://celta-myuniverse.blogspot.com/2011/09/cruelty-against-animals-in-ukraine.html
But also I wrote later that Ukraine says that will stop dog culling and will give animals a shelter to live instead of killing them and the Care2 petitionsite will make sure the best conditions will be given to animals. Read here: http://celta-myuniverse.blogspot.com/2011/11/good-new-ukraine-calls-off-dog-culling.html

But still the petition from Care2 petition is still going on here: http://www.thepetitionsite.com/2/tell-ukraine-to-stop-burning-animals-alive/
 Anyway, Care2 found out that a wicked ukrainian teenager, 19 years old, published photos and videos of him torturing and killing dogs and he also is said to have killed about 100 dogs. The videos and pictures (I did not watch because I closed the window when I saw bloody animals in pictures...and I will not see that because I am very sad and I can't see anymore inhumanity)
 With his fellows he discusses new ways of torture against animals. He is filmed throwing puppies in the railway and watching trains run over their little bodies, he is also seen cutting their tails and paws, ripping open their stomachs and pulling out their eyes.
 He and his fellows are clearly sick person conscious about what they did, that feel pleasure killing and until now they didn't show any signs of regret for what they did because they laugh about that and show themselves proud of killing. Also ukrainian authorothies showed indifference for this case (let's not forget this was a "cleansing" measure decided by the municipalities) and because of that this teenager and his pals  had no punishment yet.
If this guy feels pleasure torturing and killing helpless little creatures he and his friends can eventually turn to children! It's a well-estabilished fact that animal torture is an early sign of criminal behavior.

Is this the American Dream? sewer cities underneath USA


So last post was about children and adults too living in Bogota sewers in Colombia, a 3rd world country but I found that in the big USA, the biggest economy in the world, there are too people iving in sewers, and in tunnels right next railways in small holes they call home and live forgotten from the society. In fact USA has its own subterranean sewer cities!
Most part of that people were victims of the recession who satyed with no home after the subprime crisis, some of them too are nature disaster victims (like a girl that lost everything due to Hurricaine Katrina) and some of them are very high skilled persons that got an education...but with the recession got no job, and home.
Relatives of mine went to USA in tourism and visited New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
About Vegas they were astonishing and told me: "I never knew that in the world could exist so much wealth ".
But here's the other side of all that casinos full with glamour and filthy rich persons:
Same in New York:


Matthew O'Brien author and journalist even wrote a book about homeless people living in tunnels and sewers of Los Angels, it's called: Beneath the Neon (http://www.beneaththeneon.com/beneath-the-neon.asp)
This is really sad and makes me realize that the world is full of injustices everywhere.
About the american dream it became a nightmare. America government should stop using citizen's money to invade and detonate other countries making war everywhere...because after all now USA is dealing with the same outrageous situations people from teh so called 3rd world countries deal with.
 We all have the right to live with dignity, the right to have a home in conditions, the right to be treated as human and not sewer rats being ignored for the society that didn't care about those people anymore when they get poor.
Power to the people let's change this injustice!

Then I found a video that said that Britain have the highest population in Europe and 15% of them are homeless children (see here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=l6-0sbqVqTk#!). I must confess that I hardly can believe there are homeless kids in Britain, all I know is what I read in Courier International Magazine that said that the number of homeless people and people living in improvised sheds is really increasing in London.

Colombian militias "clean" streets killing homelessness

I received this message from the Care2 petitiosite I got shocked, this is by far the most horrifying thing I could ever imagine that is happening in the world:
"Death squads and social cleansing have been a large part of Colombia’s past. Unfortunately, they are still a part of Colombia’s present: the government is using police groups and parts of the military to exterminate people that are considered to be socially unwanted, such as the homeless.According to a documentary done by VBS.TV, the homeless are forced to hide in sewers to escape the death squads. These sewers, however, do not provide much protection as militia groups have been known to ignite the sewers with gasoline, trapping and killing those below. Many of these homeless people are children and adolescents who have been living on the streets for years. With no support and no other options, these people’s lives are at risk every single day.
Tell the President of Colombia, the Minister of Defense and the National Police Director that the social cleansing occurring in Colombia is unacceptable and must stop!"
So after sign the petition I searched for the documentary of VBS tv about children living in sewers in Bogotá, Colombia and I found it: http://www.vice.com/balls-deep/sewers-of-bogota
Or watch it on Youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?NR=1&v=8gz_4S44m0M
The sewers were filled with packs of kids living waist-deep in shit and taking in copious amounts of glue and crack in order to cope the street kids had gone down into the sewers in the first place was to get away from the violence. But then the paramilitary death squads who had chased them off the street started to come into the pipes and shoot them or douse them in gasoline or rape them. Ten-year-old girls were giving birth and trying to raise babies in the middle of sewage (the early onset of puberty having been brought on by the constant molestation by adults and older kids).
I thought this was an isolated case in colombia, but searching in the internet I found out that children live in streets and sewers everywhere, even in Rome homelless kids who came illegaly hidden in trucks to Europe, speciall afghan kids: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/7983880.stm
But there's also lot's of sewer kids in Ukraine(the kid from the picture above lives in Ukraine), Angola (Luanda specially) and God knows where else they can live.
I've read annd seen in TV  that also in Brasil militias do this kind of "cleansing" shooting street children.
I'm shoked! How awful is this world!

American congress want to censore the world wide web



Communication from Avaaz:

"Right now, the USA congress is debating a new law that can confer the USA country the power to censore the world wide web- creating a black list that might have as targets Youtube, Wikileaks or Avaaz!
Under this law, USA can force the internet providers to block any website suspicious to violate the laws of copyright and intelectual property or that fail policing suficiently the activity of its users. And due to the fact most web hosting services are located in USA, that black list could suppress teh free web to all of us.
The votting can happen any day, but together we can stop this- some members of the congress want to preserve  the freedom of speech and informed us that an international uproar could help their influence inside the congress. Let's urgently raise our voices from all places in the world and create a global petition like it was never seen before appealing that the decision makers reject that law project and detain the censore in the Internet. Click below to sign, and then forward to as many people as possible - our message will be delivered directly to the USA congress members before the crucial voting:

http://www.avaaz.org/po/save_the_internet/?tta

For years, the USA government condemned countries as China or Iran for the repression of the use of internet. But the impact of the new laws of censore in North America could be much more worse, blocking sites for all internet users around the globe.


Last year, a similar law project of internet censore was stopped before get in the USA senate, but now this project is back in a new different way.
The copyright laws already exist and are apllied by the courts. But this law goes much far beyond that, it warrants to the government and large corporations enormous powers to force internet service providers and search tools to block websites only based on alleged violations without a trial or a proof that the crime happened!
The proponents of free speech in USA already activated the alarm and some senators are trying to gather sufficient support to stop this dangerous law project.
We have no time to lose, let's support them and assure that the american legislators preserve the right to a free and open  internet as an essential way for people all around the world excahnge ideas, communicate and work collectively to build the world we want.
During the last months, from the Arab spring to the movement Occupy all over the world, we've seen in first hand how internet can stimulate, hold together and change the world. Now, if we stick together, we can stop this new attack against freedom in internet. We've already accomplished that yet- in Brazil and in Italy, the Avaaz members won big victories in the struggle for internet. Let's do this a global demand and moblize to defeat the most powerful threat of censorship that the Internet has ever seen".

I hardly can believe that US government is thinking of impose a global censorship to the freedom of free speech through the internet!That's outrageous!
This law project coming true would mean the biggest attack to the freedom of free speech of the all human History! I hardly can believe that such an idea can be voted! I'm in shock!
But this only shows the fear that corrupted and liars governments and the global system itself is apprehensive of the people that use the internet in their demand to search the truth, inform the others and get informed, debate ideias through internet, denounce injustices, raise awareness, wake consciences an mobilize people to the a global change...that might not be suitable for the interests of the most powerfull ones.
Internet is the most democratic media eve, censore opinions and texts done by journalists or ordinary people in pages of internet like blogues is the biggest attack to the freedom of our speech speech and the right for search a different truth that are not imposed on us by bought and censored media. And many governments already bought and censored some media in magazines/TV/ newspapers shaping the citizen's minds for what suits them better...but internet still being a free territory by now (at least if you don't live in China or Iran) and that's how it must continue to be like!
If there is anything that must be censored in the internet are the gigabytes of porn (specially american porn from California) floating on internet. But porn is the 2nd biggest industry in USA, it's a dirt industry that is worth billions so it's owkay isn't it? By the way the biggest, the nr 1, industry of USA is the armament...with the amount of war missions worldwide we would never have guess...
The sites of terrorism appealing to violence and wickedness should be banned too.
Another option is other countries specially in Europe decentralize from the USA net providers and build a free network from them.
Talking about myself as a blogger I received thousands of visits from all over the world (from all Europe and other different countries worldwide like USA, canada, Argentina, Mexico, New Zeland, Australia, Brazil, Angola, Mozambique,Russia, Japan, India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Egipt, Lybia and even Iraq) but i noticed I've never have a visitor from China because google is blocked there and internet is censored, chinese people only can access to internet pages that were chosed and controlled. In China some bloggers have their content deleted, they're chased, arrested, tortured and even condemned to death penalty just for facing the government.
With this new censorship law approved I'm sure my blogue should be one of the large amounts of blogues to de deleted ore even banned once my vision about the global system is not suitable for the vision politicians wants to enforce us with and resigned myself to give them a supreme authority.
USA approving this new law would cause a global censorship and prevent institutions like Wikileaks, Avaaz, International Amnisty, Greenpeace, WWF and much much more other institutions to show us the harsh reality behind the selective filter of other media.
WE CAN'T ALLOW CENSOR!

22 birthday!

yey that's it I'm 22 now! How cool!
And how was my b'day? well it was a kind of another bad day actually, but I'm not hurt, sad or resentful because I chose to celebrate it alone...again.
Well this is my 2nd birthday that I spent all on my own, last year I did the same (http://celta-myuniverse.blogspot.com/2010/11/unhappy-birthday.html).
I say that I chose spending my day like this because I had my parents, sister, uncle and grandmother and grandfather to celebrate it with but I decided I was better off my own, alone, thinking and dealing alone with my existential problems.
I don't really know exactly why I decided to be all alone again, I don't know really, sometimes I think I'm letting this whole thing about being a misanthropist way too far, I don't know if that's because I like the feeling of power of being alone in such an important day so I can tell myself: "see, you don't need anyone...the other's just mess up with your head and make you feel worse about yourself, if they don't do that their just being cynicals" or if I like to show the other's they don't matter to me and I don't need them or if it's because I like to feel as an even more unhappy person than I'm already or even if I like to make the other people that say they like me (as family) to suffer showing them that I just don't care about them and they're not important to me (even that not being true) or if I'm just addicted and resigned to my loneliness.
I'm the first person saying that I can't understand my messy personality. Nevertheless I feel atacked and mistretaed by everyone all the time and if they're not being mean to me that's because they're fake and soon they'll show it, or they're just being nice because they don't really know me, once they get the chance to know me they won't like myself as I am, anyway I don't pretend being someone else because I rather be hated for who I am than loved for who I am not.
I know, I know sometimes I could slow down a bit and not be so straightforward, ironic, sarcastic, a bit agresive in a way I say things, but my worst flaw and my strongest defense is being trustless. I don't let anyone   approach to me, I mean as what we can call friend, I can be nice and polite but not a friend...to be a friend I really need to trust that persons...and it's quite difficult once I've being so disappointed about the persons I used to call friends.
I made a real simple test to put those friendships to a test: I'll just vanish, I will stop texting them, calling them, putting loser likes on their lousy facebook stuff, and talk to them through a damn computer. I quit inviting them to go out because they almost never go, and wait I'll wait until someone of those so called "friends" give me a call and say something, invite me to go out...the kind of stuff friends do.
And I waited, and waited, and waited...for you to realize how stupid this is I got several text messages in my cell phone and I don't know who sent it because I switched my cell phone 4 months ago but my number remained the same...during that 4 months I didn't get a call from those persons...and all the sudden I got "happy birthday messages" wishing me a great day! So I must conclude they are meaningless no?
But there's even more, I decided to make this test and never invite no one to do something, but got no invitations to the cinema so I still going alone (by the way this year I was the only person in the whole cinema watching the black swan movie...how creepy), I go out like to museums, walk in turistic hot spots, relax in coffees, doing hikes, go shopping to the mall, hold still: I go to manifestations alone...and of course sometimes I have to go alone to concerts and music festivals. You might say that people don't have money to do some stuff, but that's such a lousy excuse...you don't simply hang out with your friend because you son't have money? But sometimes we not even need money to do cool stuffs, for example, this year Joss Stone did an amazing free show in Lisbon, it was totally free and I went all by myself on summertime, when all exams were over and there's not the excuse of "I got to study". I didn't tell anyone I was going, but put videos of Joss Stone in my facebook saying: "it's tomorrow" (see how loser?) so I went alone and the next day I checked my "friend's" facebooks and they saw that they went there with other friends and took pictures. In a recent concert I went, I found there what I call a "I thought it was a friend" and said him "Hi", he was very surprised to see me although then he said "ohhhh I already knew that you were coming you said it on your facebook. Are you alone?Yes? Oh ok nice to see you". -.-
And several people did this to me and much worse, but let's stop here.
I think that if you don't remind other people all the time that you're alive they just assume your dead.
I decided not to disturb anyone or annoy them, if they are important to me and I'm important for them they'll let me know about that...guess what? they didn't.
But that's ok I rather be alone than with fake persons. And being alone made me spend more time reading, seeing documentaries and getting informed and even write this loser stuff on my blogue (LOL)...the point is that I accomplished a level of culture and information that makes me stay bored and annoyed to be next to people who simply don't have interessant themes of converstations, I got a bit snippy and just decided I would not hang out with idiots any longer. So I rather write on my blogue, getting (almost) no comments but lots and lots of visits worldwide. I guess it's a kind of comfort because I'm making imaginary friends (which are my visitors) but this time they're real. And that's a real loser thing I know but I don't care, more loser is persons that think they can mantain my friendship and respect hanging out through social networks.

All my life I felt understimated by the others but now I have the reverse problem I overstimate me, the way I found out to do that is simply assume that everyone else is idiot and put their opinions, their jokes and the thought "what should they think about myself?", to a trash level. They don't matter anything to me and I want to make sure they got the message right.
I'm tired of always listen that I'm a weirdo,a freak, that a have serious issues, that I'm not normal, that I'm strange so sometimes I felt I have to pretend being a normal person like them. But now I decided just to be myself and I'm proud of it because other people have being showing me how dumb/ stupid and fake they can be...I like spending time with myself  even because I don't argue with myself or make myself cry and get myself out of my nerves.


Yes I'm an outsider and that's my confort zone.


So yesterday I let my cell phone at home for not be disturbed with fake messages of happiness and telling me to have a great day ('cause it's impossible alone). I just went to the Navy museum, walked in a touristic zone of Lisbon: Belém, sat by the river catching some sun and writing, watching people looking at me as a freak (and they don't even knew I was "celebrating" my birthday), I ate one of my favourite cakes: custards of Belém, went to the cinema and had a vegetarian dinner at night by the river alone sometimes listenning to myself "how fail was all that", I came back home and went to sleep...it was it. A normal day when I go out with myself...but this time was a bit strange I couldn't enjoy myself...it was boring!
But at spending my birthday alone I had a quite peaceful day, I not even cried, I couldn't feel depressed or sad about it but I couldn't feel happy too, I was spending the time wishing that comes to an end, it's over I'm older and it's just that.
But sorry I can't stand the phrase: "have a fantastic day 'cause you deserve it, I like you a lot!".
I would like to have a great day but I have no friends to have fun and with my family I have my stressed father and sister getting out of my nerves, and if it's to go to a restaurant I have to see them eating meat (I don't eat meat since I was 12!), and even worse they like to eat baby meat as piglets, calves, baby cows, nanny-goats...and I have to watch or pretend I don't watch and don't care about all that horror scene in front of me, I simply have to pretend I respect them for being such a...what I can call this? bloody predators!?
And like most part of restaurants don't have vegetarian food I would have to eat fish or just rice and salad...
And my family takes a long time to move, in my grandma's birthday we had lunch at 3 p.m!
No I didn't want to watch them eat meat, and have to eat fish, I didn't want to deal with their stresses and I wasn't quite sure they wanted to celebrate anything 'cause my father blames me for his boring life like: "I refused job opportunities abroad 'cause of you", "when I got married and had kids I just couldn't go to cinema anymore, or read anything besides newspapers, I never travelled anymore...my will to live disappeared...". Well c'mon I must feel glad to have born and wish spend that day with my family? I guess not...besides that when I turned 15th nobody besides grandparents and sister said me happy birthday, my parents simply ignored me...and now they say that they regret...anyway I don't forget and I wasn't willing to take the risk to stay depressive at home regretting my acidental birth, ok?

One thing is sure, 3 years ago I tried to make a birthday party and almost no one wanted to attend it so I canceled it, then I promised to myself I wouldn't go to other's birthday parties and that's clear!

So that's it I have my lost self steem back and I'm stronger than I ever thought I could be , I cannot be super happy for my life but I accomplished a lot of stuff even alone and saw several times my favourite bands so I just won't feel sad any longer because someone made me feel sad and useless.
With all my flaws and frustrations I learnt to respect and like myself, I have a perspective of a future (and it's in peace and alone, I simply decided not to let my happines in other's hands), I discovered lots of qualities in me like I can be a very clever, peaceful, human person I gave myself value and I'm stronger.

So here I go on my own, I don't need nobody I'm bettter off alone.
