6 looks de maquillaje para hacer en cuarentena

Una reunión laboral, un cumpleaños y hasta incluso una cita: todo se transformó de presencial a virtual. Aquí algunos estilos recomendados por uno de los maquilladores oficiales de Dior en América Latina para poner en práctica durante el confinamiento.
Piel sobre todas las cosas

Lo esencial es lo esencial, maquillaje perfecto en piel perfecta! Deja que tu piel lo cuente, es esencial que la piel tenga un resultado perfecto para lucir no sobrecargada, elegí siempre la rutina que más se adapte al tipo de piel previo al maquillaje.
  • ¡Que el balance no cuente!
Hay un código y es que si vas a cargar labios con un rojo fabuloso es importante que no cargues los ojos. Pero en este caso eso no cuenta.
La idea detrás de participar en una virtual party es que celebres que hay lazos que una pandemia no puede romper y códigos dentro del maquille que aún están de nuestro lado. Acentúa con mérito el maquillaje y celebrá la vida contando historias de color tanto en ojos como en labios por igual.
  • Highlighter or highlighter
Aprovechá al máximo la luz para que sin perder ese efecto de piel natural y cuidada durante estos días se refleje su propia naturalidad. Elegí cuidadosamente el tono del HighLighter solo para resaltar el efecto satinado en la tez y ayudar a comunicar un resplandor natural.

Aunque si te gusta, podés dalre a la piel un efecto de tocada por el sol en aquellas partes donde se debe de resaltar el bronceado y no intentar verte bronceada de cuerpo entero.
  • Rojo perfecto y brillante

https://preview.redd.it/74ngeyhrwt351.png?width=768&format=png&auto=webp&s=91934e6096fdad71577f58ede801fe1776a3838d
Siempre hay que usar el rojo para celebrar: es vida y fiesta. Y si está acompañado de brillo nada mejor. Probá con aplicar sobre algún rojo icónico una dosis mínima de Gloss .Esto aportará volumen y enfriará un poco la calidez del rojo base y le dará un efecto 3D que en cámara luce espectacular.
  • Eye liner de efecto grafico
Ok, entendemos que no sos muy diestra aplicándote las sombras. Podés crear en su defecto un eye liner de efecto gráfico. Probá con un delineador negro para dar un toque de dramatismo que nos encanta ver y lucir durante las fiestas.

En el párpado superior podés unas sombras oscuras. Siempre cargando con una máscara de pestañas para un efecto aún más intenso.

2020.06.02 00:52 Ekase-pmg ¿Qué opina Ter de la cultura de cancelar?

So, con todo el lío que hay últimamente con Lana del Rey siendo cancelada, me he acordado de esta duda. ¿Ter apoya la cultura de cancelar? Yo creo que no es muy partidaria (obviusly son hipótesis mías, no vivo en la mente de Ter, ojalá:). He aquí mis argumentos:
La cuestión es: mientras ¿dejaría de comprar o consumir el contenido de esa persona? Pues no sé. El caso de Lana del Rey podría ser un buen momento para comprobarlo, pero en algún momento (no recuerdo el vídeo) comentó que no era súper fan suya porque le faltaba material para meterse en su mundo.
Bueno, ¿qué opináis?
P.S.: sorry por la falta de cosas brillantes y sirenas, soy nueva en reddit.

2020.05.20 01:27 BigCatsAreAwesome My stay in Gran Canaria, Spain

Ladies and Gentlemen, the super tree hugger presents a new episode of his travel documentary series. This time, I went further away from my home, so I chose Gran Canaria, one of the Canary Islands which belong to Spain, but not to the continent Eurasia (Europe and Asia are actually one continent), they belong to Africa. So this was the first time for me to stand on another continent, and that already at the age of 32 years. What? You are as young as you feel (or look). In this “documentary”, I’ll tell you about my experiences of my unusual far journey. Warning, this text may contain traces of hippie propaganda, daydreaming and satire.
It was the 24th of April 2019 early in the morning. The transfer taxi picked me up in my home Fieberbrunn (Tyrol, Austria) and brought me to the Munich airport. This wasn’t my first flight, so I wasn’t very nervous because of the security control. However, I secretly hoped that I didn’t somehow look suspicious and get listed in the CIA file of “traitors of the civilised West who summon the downfall of the occident”. As I arrived at the terminal and at the check-in, I went through the security control. The display behind the metal detector showed a warning sign on my shoulder and at my leg. I thought that they already got me by my balls and will label me as “Pagan-Satanic soup herbs witcher”. I have to admit that I had some nasty thoughts (let’s be honest, who hasn’t some nasty thoughts sometimes?), maybe it was because of that. The security man then scanned the two points on my body, but luckily he didn’t find anything suspicious. However, I hoped that I wasn’t secretly listed in “propaganda terror file”. I went on to the gate where I ate a snack and drank a bottle of water. I took a seat in the plane and watched it rolling. As the plane arrived at the runway, it got fast and furious and took off as elegant as the Englishmen in the After Eight TV spot. The flight went towards west over Switzerland and France where the sky was very cloudy. This must have been the rain period that arrived in my home country in the next days. Further west, I could see the Pyrenees, very fascinating. My eyes swelled up. The plane steered to the left, rocketing towards south west over Madrid in Spain and over Portugal. As I was over the Algarve coast, I left my home continent Eurasia and could see the wide Atlantic Ocean. North America was hidden far beyond the horizon. After some time, I could see the island Fuerteventura and the plane set to landing. I also could see Tenerife in the distance. The landing was quite wobbly due to the strong wind. The plane was downright dancing. After a flight time of 4 hours and 35 minutes, it put on the runway and slowed down. My country account got another entry by entering Spain (beside Austria, Germany, Switzerland, Hungary, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina). As I got out of the plane, I knew that I just entered another continent: Africa. It was a fascinating feeling. I also experienced a mini jetlag because the Canary Islands are in another time zone, so the time here is one hour earlier than in my home.
After I grabbed my suitcase, a bus brought me to Maspalomas, also known as schnitzel, weißwurst and döner paradise. This place is also very popular among gays and lesbians, but I don’t have any problems with that. During the ride, I could see the majestic mountains, so my eyes swelled up. After I arrived in Maspalomas, I got into my apartment in the bungalow zone. On the balcony, I could watch the people at the pool, and this already in April. I even could sit on the balcony shirtless at midnight without freezing. The Canary Islands are located in the subtropical climate zone, but they aren’t far away from the tropical climate zone. They are on the same latitude like Florida, so the sun is slightly more intensive. During midday, the sun is near the zenith, so the own shadow is very short. The sun rocks hard, so a 50 spf sun milk is strongly recommended. I wasn’t interested of swimming in the pool because I find the sea more beautiful. Even though I’m Austrian, there’s nothing wrong with loving the sea. I already read comments like “A real Austrian shouldn’t vacation at the sea”. Arguments like this can easily get invalidated with this fun fact: Austria used to have a sea coast (Austro-Hungarian Empire).
So I went to the beach to watch the famous dunes of Maspalomas. At the lighthouse, I already could see the western part of the dunes. As I went up the first dune, there was a young man from Germany (Baden-Württemberg) who was also fascinated by the dunes. In the next days, I took a bath in the Atlantic Ocean and took a walk through the dunes. They are a true masterpiece of Mother Nature. The dune landscape was declared a nature reserve in 1987, otherwise it probably would have become a victim of the total building craze. We don’t need to cover everything with concrete, loungers and sun umbrellas, we should let nature be nature. In the evening, I mostly took a big walk through the dunes, it was very uplifting and I had a magical feeling. I couldn’t believe how lucky I was to be at such a beautiful place. This landscape is the most beautiful part of Maspalomas, along with the lagoon La Charca. The view at the mystic hinterland, I almost fainted because it was so utterly beautiful, it looked like the scenery of a fantasy movie. My eyes swelled up. I also was fascinated by the tide which is slightly higher here at the Atlantic Ocean than at the Mediterranean Sea. A black cat also crossed my path. Black cats aren’t bad luck, remember that at last. Maspalomas is actually a typical tourist ghetto, here you can buy Lügenpresse (the German word for lying newspaper which means fake news) and “futtern wie bei Muttern” (which means you can get the food of your home country). At the beach, there is a bar called Strand-Apo-Theke which constantly played Ballermann hit songs, so it was rather uninteresting to me because I don’t like this kind of music. I also wasn’t very interested at the Cita shopping centre because there was also this music coming out of it. After some weird creature wanted to give me some kind of card (very likely to be a fraudulent scam), the interest was completely gone. Sometimes, you just want to serve these sub-human cunts a fatty “Leave me the fuck alone!” with a spicy middle finger. So I like the dunes more because they are completely free of such slime critters.
At the Strand-Apo-Theke, you can get schnitzel, potato salad, weißwurst, meatballs and currywurst - like you’re at home. There are also many Chinese restaurants, pizzerias and a Burger King. I couldn’t let it be to taste the Canarian and Spanish cuisine. I ate papas arrugadas (potatoes cooked in saltwater with spicy mojo sauce, a Canarian specialty), Canarian galletas, shrimps in garlic sauce, gazpacho, garlic bread, farmers bread with olive oil and tomatoes, seafood paella, seafood soup, hake with mussels, tapas plate, jamón Serrano and fried squids. I also tried Canarian beer (Tropical and Dorada), Spanish beer (Estrella and Cruzcampo) and Sangría. Yes, you can get this food in Maspalomas, also known as the schnitzel, weißwurst and döner paradise. I also tried Canarian cheese and Guanchitos (Canarian ring cookies covered with chocolate). During buying milk, I had to be sure that it had 3,5 % grasas (Spanish for fat) because I don’t like low fat milk. I also don’t need that disgusting 0,1% fat yoghurt or skimmed cheese, especially on holidays. This whole diet and light grub is nothing more than artificial poor quality bullshit. I don’t know any other animal species that modifies its food so that it’s low fat, ergo tasteless. It’s sad that humans alienate more and more from nature. Everywhere you can read things like that you have to eat pizza with skimmed cheese instead of mozzarella, you have to eat tiramisu with low fat quark instead of mascarpone, otherwise you are “out”. One day we have to eat chemical pills, and natural food will be labeled as “unhealthy”, “fattening”, “Pagan” or “not compliant with the latest trends dictated by the almighty and omniscient brainwash media”.
While talking with people, there was multiculturalism 4 life because I talked with people from different countries. At the beach, I talked with a Swiss family about nature and the island Gran Canaria. They told me of a man at the beach who wanted to persuade them to book a trip. I told them that it’s a scam and that they shouldn’t do it because these sellers are shit ass creatures who want to persuade people to do a “free sightseeing trip” which is a merciless fraudulent scam. They sell poor quality crap with very expensive prices. They also rush people into signing an expensive time sharing contract which is useless (this remembers me of the South Park episode “Asspen” which shows the time sharing scam in a satirical way). One day at the beach, I ate a snack. There was a catchy reggaeton music coming out of the speakers and three middle-aged women celebrated this music. They were local people, they talked to me and asked where I’m from. When I answered, they said “Austria grande!” and we had a conversation about the sea and the island. They had a fiery temperament and happiness. This was kind of contagious to me. I’m actually a quite calm/phlegmatic person, but when I’m around people with an impulsive temperament, I get this temperament too. One of them had a tattoo of a contour of a cat on her leg. A cattoo! Hail kitties! The Feline Reich will rise! She told me that she loves fluffy kitties very much. I told her that I’m also a “crazy cat lover” and that there is a wild cat species roaming free in my home country Austria – the lynx. They were very fascinated about this. They also love wolves. We celebrated together while listening to the reggaeton music and enjoyed the beauty of nature and wildlife. It’s amazing. First I’m just a tourist, and then suddenly I’m in the middle of life. On another day, I sat on a dune where I had a conversation with a young man from London. We talked about the beauty of the island and our home countries. He also loves wild cats and wolves. He told me of a friend who has a husky, a dog breed which looks very much like a wolf. One evening, I walked through the dunes and along the beach. On a dune, there were two young women who looked kind of irritating to me. They constantly messed around with their smartphones and held the camera in the air while turning around 360° and shouting “WHHOOOOOHHH!”. They did this multiple times. This seemed to be a new trend, but yet again, I didn’t know anything about this because I’m too old for this shit. There also was an old local man sitting on the dune. He lives in Playa del Inglés and only spoke a few English words. As we had a conversation, I concentrated my little Spanish vocabulary, we mainly talked with sign language. The two girls finally walked away and he also wasn’t amazed by their fanatic smartphone craze. We talked a little bit about senseless trends and walked along the beach together, heading to the lighthouse. He told me something about the island and taught me some Spanish words. He also loves wild cats and wolves. As we said goodbye, he said “Muchas gracias!” and gave a thumb up to show me that he was happy to meet me. On the way to my apartment, I met a young man. Every year, he works in Gran Canaria for four months and for the rest of the year, he lives in Rome (Italy). He also loves wild cats and wolves. We talked about our lives and about nature (mainly about the wolves of Yellowstone). Wolves are cute and fluffy. Yes, I’m crazy. At a beach bar, I talked with the bar lady who loves wild cats and wolves. I used Google Translate to translate “Nature is sacred and needs to be protected.” and “Nature is truly a great artist. It’s a shame that only a few people appreciate this.” into Spanish and she agreed. Once again, I couldn’t stop spreading my hippie and eco propaganda. I talked with a Cuban who loves wild cats and wolves as well. Now I already have some supporters for my feline army to build the Reich. All HAIL to the reintroduction of the Eurasian lynx to Austria!
I was so curious to go on a bus trip around the island. The first stop was in Puerto de Mogán where I went through the old town and up to a panorama platform. It was a beautiful view down to the port and the rocky coast. The trip went on through the hinterland and to a town with the fantasy-like sounding name Agaete at the west coast of the island. We stopped at a restaurant at lunch time. I ate a fish soup and a seafood paella. There also where a German and a French sitting at the table. They also love wild cats and wolves. We talked about the majestic view of the west coast and our lives. After that, I walked around in Agaete watched the rocky coast before the trip went on to Las Palmas. I walked around in Las Palmas and was very fascinated by the beach Las Canteras with its black spots. Once again, my eyes swelled up. This town kind of has its own flair. Then it went on back to Maspalomas. During the bus ride, I talked with a German woman who already often spent her vacation on this island. She finds it very uplifting to walk through the dunes and was also fascinated by the nature of the island.
On another day, I took a bus ride through the middle of the island. I visited Teror, a town in the inland. In this town, there were Spanish soldiers who were praying in the church. On a panorama platform, I could watch the landscape and the Roque Nublo, it was breathtaking. I also could see a little bit of Tenerife with the Teide mountain (the highest mountain of Spain, 3718 meters) behind a veil. We stopped at a mountain inn where I ate rancho Canario (Canarian vegetable soup), Spanish tortillas and postre mousse de gofio (Canarian dessert). There were also an elderly Bavarian couple and an elderly Irish couple sitting at the table. We had a conversation and once again, I raved about the beauty of nature. I showed them some photos, such like the photo which I shot in the Plitvice National Park in Croatia where there is a hidden lynx on it. They where very amazed by nature’s masterpieces. The trip went on through Fataga and I could see an aloe vera farm. Once again, the landscape with its canyons and lots of palms made my eyes swell up.
Now let’s head for the neighboring island Tenerife. I wanted to conquer the town Santa Cruz. It was early in the morning and it was dark. A bus brought me to Agaete from where a ferry went to Tenerife. During the ride, the ferry swung to the left and to the right due to the waves of the sea so my stomach prickled, like I was on a roller coaster. I could hear people vomiting because they got seasick. The ride took two hours, then the ferry reached Tenerife and docked at the port of Santa Cruz. Once again, I was amazed by the majestic mountains behind the town and by the town itself. First I walked towards south to the auditorium of Santa Cruz, I was fascinated by its architecture. I took a little break and ate an ice cream (passion fruit and coconut Santacruzian style). In the front of the auditorium at the coast, there are rocks with portraits of famous people (such like Johan Strauss) painted on them. The weather was fine and completely cloudless. I preferred to stay in the northern part of the town because there weren’t as many cars driving around as in the south. I ate Spanish tards, I don’t know their names anymore, but they were delicious. At a bar, I ate a Serrano snack and drank a cappuccino. At the neighboring table, there were some elderly German people who spent their vacation in Tenerife. They were also fascinated by the island. There also was a young local woman who lives in Santa Cruz. She only was here for a short time because she had to go to work. I talked to her and so we had a nice conversation about our home countries. I told her that we have lynx, wolves and brown bears in Austria which she found interesting because she loves lynx, wolves and bears as well. It was a nice day in Santa Cruz, then the ferry took me back to Gran Canaria. During the ride, I met a young man from Saxony (Lausitz). We talked about our vacation and enjoyed the pensive atmosphere. The ferry headed straight to the “abyss” (horizon). He told me that there are wolves in the Lausitz area, but even if you walk around and actively search for wolves, you won’t see them. We were outraged by animal haters who speak out rants against cats and other animal species. We also were outraged by the Lügenpresse (fake news) which spreads fear and hatred against nature. Once again, damn you, Lügenpresse! During the bus ride from Agaete to Maspalomas, I saw lots of small houses and I thought about the everyday life of the local people here, so once again, there was a pensive atmosphere.
I did a trip to Las Palmas. First the trip went to the hinterland and up to the volcano crater Caldera de Bandama, and then it went on to a botanical garden where I could see some very beautiful endemic plants. After that, I took a little deeper look on Las Palmas. I walked through the alleys and along the beach promenade. Once again, I felt the special atmosphere of this city, it’s incredible. At a bar, I ate some Serrano ham and Canarian cheese. The people here are very lively and greeted each other with an impulsive temperament, I was very fascinated. At the neighbouring table, there were local women, one of them had two cute small dogs. As they left, one of the dogs gave me a kiss, and then we all laughed together. In the Santa Catalina Park, I found a statue of a woman with her four cats. You can’t imagine how delighted I was and once again, my eyes swelled up. First I photographed the whole piece of art, and then I photographed every single cat because they are so cute. Later I found out that this is a statue of a famous personality called Lolita Pluma who fed cats and was declared the “Queen of the Santa Catalina Park” in 1984. This statue is a symbol of freedom, muse of tourism and artists, and protector of animals. I ate an ice cream (mango and caramel) and took a short break by sitting down on a public seat. There was a young local man sitting next to me who lives in Las Palmas, so we had a conversation. I told him of my home country and its wildlife. He loves wolves as well. Wow, so many people who love wolves! So I’m not alone with my craziness. He loves wild cats as well, such like lynx. He was pretty amazed as I told him that I travelled to Gran Canaria alone.
On the last day of my vacation, I joined a hiking trip in the inland of the island. We walked along a hiking trail up the mountains and through a pinewood. The sky was completely cloudless and once again, the beauty of nature was breathtaking. I also could see Tenerife with the Teide. I took lots of photos. I also took photos of me standing in a natural landscape with the Teide in the background and a photo of me hugging a tree. I thought about creating a meme with a photo of nasty drunk party people and a photo of me hugging the tree right below the party people photo. The party people photo says “How normal people spend vacation” and the photo of me says “How freaks and tree huggers like me spend vacation”. If I upload such a meme on the Internet, I would probably get scorn and ridicule and make people angry. An apocalyptical shitstorm would break out. Maybe even the Third World War would start. Ok, let’s stop the wondering, I just enjoyed the landscape and my eyes swelled up. The trip went up to a masterpiece of Mother Nature: the Roque Nublo. I can’t describe how amazing the view was up there. During the hike, I also could see a rock formation which looked like Donkey Kong holding a beer and some other funny rock formations.
On the next day, I walked around in Maspalomas and was thinking about my vacation. During the walk, I suddenly saw a Gran Canaria giant lizard on the other side of the road. This lizard species is only native to Gran Canaria, ergo endemic. I quickly grabbed my camera and was lucky to take some photos of it, even though the lizard was moving very fast. Lizards are one of my favorite animals, I find them very cute. People could call me a lizard hugger. I watched the photos and was happy about my “trophy”. Once again, I had an idea for a meme with a photo of a trophy hunter posing next to a dead lion and a photo of me posing next to the lizard photo poster on my wall. The lion trophy hunter photo says “How normal people do trophy hunting” and the photo of me says “How dreamers and eco pussies like me do trophy hunting”. Some self-proclaimed crusaders would probably go after me with pitchforks and fire torches. Maybe even Donald Trump himself would appear and scream at me with phrases like “Holy Double Whopper, what the fucking fuck are you fucking fuck fucking doing?”.
Then I was thinking about an incident in South Africa where a poacher got trampled by an elephant and mauled by lions. He wanted to hunt rhinos to sell their horns to the Chinese. But science has proven that the horn of rhinos, tiger penis soup and stuff like that is totally useless and doesn’t have any effects. This “medicine” makes me so utterly angry and needs to get eliminated. Screw the Chinese medicine! WAAAHH!!! GET RID OF THIS FUCKING SHIT WHORE FILTH!!! There are “traditions” which need to get eliminated (such like the “tradition” of the bull fight, btw, bull fights are banned on the Canary Islands). I was surprised how many people were happy about the poacher’s death. There are lots of newspaper articles of this incident. In the comment sections, there were mainly people who made fun of the poacher’s death and were happy about it. Comments like “You eco pussies, tree huggers and city folks have no clue about life. Unlike us manly, straight and smart countryside people, only we know everything.” were very rare. Btw, I’m a countryside person. Well, I don’t think that the village St. Jakob in Haus (where I was born and raised) counts as a city. I also was happy about his death. I know we shouldn’t make fun about the death of people, but that sub-human scum of poachers totally deserves it. I would personally throw the parasite filth into the oven, make a video of it and upload it on the Internet, titled “In your face, nature haters!”. If we destroy nature, nature will destroy us.
A bus then brought me to the airport, where I had a conversation with an older woman who hates predators. She said that all wolves should be shot. I told her that snow leopards and tigers are close to extinction and that it’s a shame, then she said “Well, get rid of them!”. She also didn’t have a passion for sharks. Another older woman joined the conversation and ranted against foxes and other wild animals. I did what I can do best: spread hippie propaganda! I spoke the usual phrases like “The world belongs to all creatures, not only humans.”, “The animals were there before us, who are we to decide which species can live and which cannot?” and “Humanity destroys the earth, but the other animal species are labeled as evil.”. I also told them that I find sharks and snakes very beautiful and that they are very important to the eco system. Then they looked at me incredulously. They also looked puzzled. A man sitting next to me agreed with me, so I wasn’t alone with my statement. Well, I made my point and hopefully made the world a little bit better. I’m not that so-called “brave, straight, righteous and conservative citizen” who gets drunk every weekend, listens to mainstream hit music, screams populist rants, worships status symbols (such like fast cars or the newest smartphones), reads the Kronen Zeitung (an Austrian populist boulevard newspaper) and goes to Church. I’m more of an unworldly do-gooder and hopeless hippie floating through his rainbow dream world on pink clouds and watching out for cute unicorns. After that conversation, I went on to the gate to fly back to Munich (but not on pink clouds, even though I’m sure that would have been very beautiful). During the plane ride, there was this pensive atmosphere again. I was thinking about the two wildlife-hating women at the airport. And then people wonder why this world is going down to drain. Well, I hope that at least they will remember my words. After 3 hours and 52 minutes, I landed at Munich airport from where the transfer brought me back to Fieberbrunn. I finally returned home.
I experienced a lot of things during my two weeks vacation. I entered new terrain, tasted new food (I know that it almost sounds like a sacrilege, but I didn’t eat any schnitzel, döner or McDonald’s food during the two weeks) and met new people. And, well, I made the world a better place. Or not. Haha! I definitely had a lot of fun and the atmosphere was typical vacation-like and sunny, but sometimes also pensive. And, yeah, my eyes swelled up. The weather also was always sunny, at least at the south coast because the mountains protect the coast from the northeast trade wind. Only in the north, the weather was sometimes cloudy due to the northeast trade wind. In my home country, the weather was mostly rainy and sometimes snowy, so I escaped the bad weather. I was sitting at the sea with sunny weather. Meanwhile in my home country, the weather was rainy, snowy and cold. I’m just not a winter person, even though I’m from Tyrol. Some people would see this as a mortal sin because I already found comments like “A real Austrian has to spend vacation in the snowy mountains and not in hot countries!”. I also didn’t need Kronen Zeitung or BILD (a German boulevard newspaper) which I also don’t read at home. Yes, I’ve never bought a Kronen Zeitung newspaper. Oh no, I see enraged citizens rioting and lighting the stake. They want to burn that evil heretic who dares to question the infallibility of the holy Kronen Zeitung. This text is also filled with idealist mindset and will probably polarize because it contains parts which some people may find disturbing (especially because I use words like “sub-humans”). But this is necessary to give people a wake up call. I’m just not an “I lay my love on you” radio pop lyric person who only produced that conform and standardized radio crap. I sometimes have to be rough and honest to speak out my opinion, even though some narrow-minded backwoodsmen get red faces and would like to sic entire secret agencies on me. But this is rather unlikely. Which kind of weird planes are flying over me? And why is there a guy with a giant antenna walking around? And who’s knocking on my door? I’m opening the door… and once again, I get big googly eyes.
See, the occident still exists. People should open their mind and not bash on everything which they see as “not normal”. Start to think for yourselves. I still hope that overall, you liked this text and that it enriched you and that I will do more journeys to experience more diversity. Diversity 4 life!
May the pink clouds show us the way.

##d100 City Street Encounters
  1. A homeless urchin approaches the party and claims that he used to be a great magician. He says that if the party were to give him a gold piece, he could make one of them disappear. The urchin has a teleportation sigil on the ground in front of him that is incredibly difficult to see and only activates with his command word, which happens to be 'PRESTO!'. The character standing on the sigil is teleported to an alleyway 3 blocks down the road, into a trash pile. [dndspeak]
  2. Three semi-attractive ladies boldly harass a PC saying that s/he slept with all three of them. Creating a diversion for a pickpocket to snagged the purse of the PC's while they are distracted by the ladies. Once the pickpocket is gone they apologize and say that the PC looks like someone they know. [Austiniuliano]
  3. down the street, a person is being chased by the city guard. The guard are yelling for the thief to stop. As the thief gets close a 2nd thief causes a distraction to the guard such as overturning a wagon full of manure. The pair of thieves round the corner close to the PCs. what do the PC's do? [Austiniuliano]
  4. As you pass an alleyway, a male goblin rushes out frantically and flags down your group. “Help, help, my wife is giving birth! Please, someone help us!” You look past him into the alley, and sure enough, there is a pregnant goblin grimacing and bracing herself against a crate. You get to name their firstborn if you help out, and the father will buy your party a round of drinks at the tavern he works at. [ASzinhaz]
  5. A charlatan offers to give a party member some fancy jewelry to advertise their business. Little did they know this jewelry has a scrying enchantment and will be used to see where the party is staying and how well defended they are and rob them that night. [11110000110011]
  6. Roll a DC 15 Dexterity check to not get hit with the contents of an emptied chamberpot. If anyone in the party fails the check, the party rolls all Charisma checks at a disadvantage until the unlucky ones take a proper bath. [ASzinhaz]
  7. You see an older man yelling at his apprentice for making some mistake. The apprentice seems near tears because he's trying to explain himself but can't get a word in edgewise. [jheiner227]
  8. You are walking down the street when you are bumped violently aside, but when you look for the perpetrator all you see is a stray cat which seems to part the crowd wherever it goes (It's actually a dragon casting major illusion to better mingle). [callhimbob]
  9. A child with an obvious injury begging for money pleads to the party for money. Later that day the party sees the same kid running around playing tag. [callhimbob]
  10. A shopper in the market starts going mad trying to bite the other patrons. Minutes later the shopper collapses with no memory of what happened. (In my game the person had been possessed by an animal spirit) [callhimbob]
  11. The party comes upon an ongoing street performance of a popular play. It's an enjoyable show, until the actors start looking for members in the audience to call on stage (whether that's because they're malicious or they pick the most socially awkward member of the part) [callhimbob]
  12. A group of miners are protesting outside of a noble's estate over poor working conditions [callhimbob]
  13. A gaggle of students run up to the party and demand that the oddball (genasi, orc, kenku, etc...) come back to the university with them so they can win the scavenger hunt they're competing in [callhimbob]
  14. You come across 4 old men sitting and playing cards. If you want to join, they let you, but because this is what they do with their lives, they are very good. [jheiner227]
  15. You see a man/woman locked away in a prison cairrage, they beckon to you they are innocent and will compensate you handsomely should you aid in their escape. [Oniguumo]
  16. A street performer is making music, hoping that people will pay him. If he's very good, there's a large crowd. If he's bad, people walk by, averting their eyes. If the party is musical, he's happy to perform together and split the take. He may not be honest about the split, though. [jheiner227]
  17. A friendly looking man in light brown robes approaches the party. He is surrounded by 7 golden birds. He offers to read the fortune of the party in exchange for enough coin to buy a meal and bed for the night (I usually use 5 GP). If they acquiesce, he asks them to ask a question and he answers using the Divination spell. A successful perception check (DC 15, ARC skill of +5 or higher automatically succeeds) will reveal that he hasn't actually cast any spell, but his answers are always truthful. Once he is out of sight of the party, he disappears. [[deleted]]
  18. A homeless man/woman approaches begging for food and or shelter for the evening. Party agrees, they'll wake up and a large sum of money sits by them but he or she is gone. If they refuse, then days later they hear in the news a man shown kindness in a person's time of need. Billionaire gives man money. [SychsisOPhrenia]
  19. A raving madwoman stops everyone she sees, telling the story of how she was the mistress of the Mayor or King. Her mind is broken and her speech is rambling, but the stories she tells are very consistant and convincing. [Alphachicken]
  20. A voice calls out from a darkened alleyway, it sounds in distress, but is quickly muffled. [Kiyohara]
  21. The cobble pavement collapses in a major street revealing a dungeon (or unknown sewer beneath. In a short period of time a large portion of the city guard will come to inspect and clear crowds. A single old crippled man will climb from within the hole and collapse once he reaches the light [mechanical_banana42]
  22. A parade blocks traffic while many people stop what they are doing to watch. [Kiyohara]
  23. A circus strongman flexes and struts in a chalk ring. A halfling barker stands on a soap box, challenging anyone walking by to test their mettle against the steel thews of Kourteous the Mighty, Terror of the Ring! Best out of three clinches wins. [nlitherl]
  24. A very large wild animal calmly walks down the street. People run away and shout, but the beast seems uninterested in them. [Kiyohara]
  25. A merchant offers the exact same items the party already owns, but if they buy anything they will find the exact object missing from there bag. If confronted about it, the merchant will flee leaving the party with all the items, but there bags are empty (they have one of each item again). The players can buy and keep two of any item by taking it out of there backpack and holding it while buying the duplicate. [Sappique]
  26. Several acrobats occupy a part of the street and display great skill and dexterity in their movements and contortions. [Kiyohara]
  27. A tower full of boiling molasses/oil/etc groans and collapses from atop the roof of a local apothecary/wizard. Any caught in the rushing wave of scorching liquid stand to have the flesh melted from their very bones! [revderrick]
  28. The doors to a brewery explode open and thousands of gallons of beer rush out and swamp the streets. Many townsfolk quickly gather buckets, pitchers, and other containers and start scooping up what they can. [Kiyohara]
  29. Two gentlemen or women, surrounded by guards seem to be getting into a bit of a fight. They're yelling loudly and making convincing swings at each other. They position themselves, and as one swings with all his/her might, the other ducks, and they manage to knock over one of the guards, dashing out of the circle as quickly as possible. As they pass your party, one of them tosses you a mysterious object as they pass. Along with the object is a hastily scribbled note that reads, "MIDNIGHT, , MEET". [TheDirtyDeal]
  30. Two merchants stand nose to nose screaming at each other, their carts are intertwined and they are blocking traffic. Their horses seem to be nonplussed and nibble at nearby grass. [Kiyohara]
  31. You find a potion seller that had all the labels to his potions torn of in the middle of the night by a trickster rouge that has been terrorizing the city in recent weeks. To make matters worse, due to the "discrete" nature his clientele, all of the potions have been bewitched so they are immune to the use of an Identify spell. He is desperately trying to sell the rest of his unusable stock at a discount to anybody passing by. Each potion is 20gp or comes in bulk packs of 12 for 200gp. Roll a d20 to determine what the potion is. 1 Sorcerer Spirit: A random magic effect from the wild magic surge table occurs. If a Wild Magic sorcerer drinks the potion, roll twice on the table

20 Cheap whiskey [Jacknerik]
  1. A man runs by, screaming, seemingly battling an large octopus that has latched itself to his head and is spraying ink everywhere. No one recognizes the man and fewer know where one could find a large octopus. [Kiyohara]
  2. You bump into a figure in a sharp travelers cloak. The figure either places a magic item in your pocket that is being hunted by the town guards or the figure steals a magic item from you and runs. Upon finding the figure either way you come to learn they are a royalty among the criminal underworld and want to hire you for their next big score. [TaleBinder]
  3. A skilled bard is performing in a local noble's garden. The sounds can be heard clearly outside and a small crowd of passers by has stopped to appreciate. The Noble's guards are debating if they can/should disperse the crowd. [Kiyohara]
  4. The party hears an alarm bell ringing loudly a few blocks out of sight, which is quickly picked up other alarm bells around the city. Large flagpoles around the party's section of the city of quickly raise up orange flags, and a general call of "code orange" is taken up by everyone nearby as citizens rapidly pack up stalls and evacuate the streets with practiced ease. The ground begins to tremble by the time all nearby citizens are tucked into alleys or taking shelter indoors, and within seconds of the street clearing, a stampede of brightly colored oxen round a corner and barrel down the party's street. If the party has taken shelter, they are trapped where they are for the next 30 seconds as the small flood of animals passes by them, after which the locals quickly go about setting up shop as if nothing had happened. If the party is in the path of the oxen, they take 3d6 bludgeoning damage and are dragged 40 feet in the direction of the stampede for each turn that they remain in it, with the stampede counting as difficult terrain in any area it occupies. If the party manage to get someone to explain the situation, it is revealed a powerful but unstable sorcerer named Wizbo often conducts strange "experiments" in his "wizard tower", and that the particular section of the city he belongs to has adapted and developed a warning system to alert the locals to incoming magical shenanigans. In this case, a code orange indicates actual potential danger and advises citizens to clear the streets and take shelter indoors until the alarm has passed. [ThePragmaticPimp]
  5. A local baker has created a new type of baked good and is giving samples to everyone. From the sounds of appreciation, it is quite good and there is already a line to both try the food and to enter the store. [Kiyohara]
  6. Some of the citizens are exchanging messages in thieves cant. Messages like “it begins in 30 minutes” and “get in position”. 50% chance it’s a daring heist and 50% chance it’s a flash mob. [Patergia]
  7. A horse, saddled and with a large pack slowly ambles down the street, the stays and ties having clearly been broken. Surely the owner will want it back. [Kiyohara]
  8. The Laughing Prince, a controversial thief, has been captured. Half of the populace think he's a hero of the people; the other half think he's a ruthless cutthroat. His public execution is scheduled for midday in the town square, and the crowd on both sides is getting increasingly reckless and ugly... [Courtholomew]
  9. Several guardsmen can be seen checking strangers to see if they paid their gate tax or if they are residents. Most people seem to have a piece of paper indicating one or the other. [Kiyohara]
  10. A fire has broken out in the Market District, and is growing fast. The party can work to put out the fire, can try to alleviate the panic, or perhaps try to pick up some abandoned items for a *substantial* discount... [Courtholomew]
  11. A well dressed man accompanied by two rough looking guards is politely inquiring if anyone has paid the Thieves's Guild Tax and if they need to renew their licenses. As soon as he spots the party, he smiles widely and approaches. [Kiyohara]
  12. It's the Regent's/Mayor's birthday and the streets are awash with celebrations. An amiable man wearing the city colours and crest persuades (DC15 CHAR) the party to go on a discounted city tour (subsidised by the city council) of some of its less famous sites with his colleague sat in the box-seat of an elegant carriage. It is in fact a dodgy scheme to eek money out of travellers. The coachman venerates the cities beautiful attractions, recklessly hurtling the rig through the foot traffic. He deposits you at the first stop. A temple. Here a weasely monk attempts to persuade (DC10 CHAR) the party to generously donate to the temple and depart with earthly possessions. The coachman will be very encouraging and optimistic about the next stop being enticing, and is according to the coachman a renowned tailors. In the dingy shop a short scowling man will stalk the players as they browse the store, seizing any opportunity to try and convince them to buy his garments. At this point the players will have little sense of where they are without some means of navigation. The coachmen is adamant that the last stop will make it all worth it. The final stop from the outside appears to be a theatre with elaborate decorations and promotions. An attractive host recieves them at the doors, and leads them down a dimly lit hall, through another set of doors and into an empty auditorium. She tells them to take a seat at the front by the stage before retreating to the double doors and locking them. (2d8+3) thugs rise from the concessions stands with loaded crossbows aimed at the players heads, and the amiable man strides out on to the stage. He demands the party's valuables in exchange for their lives. [ArtyNinja]
  13. One of the PCs trips over something in the street.Reaching down they find a coin purse, heavy and clinking. Just then an angry voice bellows, "My money! I've been robbed!" The crowd steps back and a well dressed noble points to the party and screams, "Thieves!" [Kiyohara]
  14. A frail looking stray cat follows you no matter where you go in town, the cat seemingly following you with intent [forgoten_mad_man]
  15. A cloaked figure ask's where the local library is. You can hear the muffled sounds of chewing paper while he talks. And in his wake he leaves shreds of pages. [KeenanAXQuinn]
  16. A loud, colorful troupe of dwarves enter the city square; they pitch a tent and within a few hours, they announce that the traveling unarmed fight championship will be held - all who deem themselves worthy can try and earn a goblet full of gems and honor, for a small fee. Inside, a large, wooden octagonal platform sits on the center stage... but there is a trick: it stands a few feet above the ground, balancing and tilting on a stout pole on its center, and a ring-out is an immediate disqualification. The tricky dwarven fighters have specialized on pushing off opponents as soon as they enter, and those who are hardier and can hold their ground and reach the finals find that the surface starts to spin, using centrifugal force to slide them off (the champion, of course, doesn't even try to fight and just holds to the post) [VaranusNiloticus]
  17. A group of city guards are clustered around the entrance to an alleyway. They look concerned and serious. One guard exits the alleyway, and abruptly bends over and vomits with gusto all over the pavement. If any approach, they are waved away — "Nothing to see here. Go about your business." [garumoo]
  18. A sign outside a shop selling manuscripts is crooked and jutting out into your path. If straightened or moved, a shelf of books falls over, knocking over another shelf of small paintings. Four servant boys appear in fresh finery. In the distance, the wail of a siren. [garumoo]
  19. In a nearby back alley, an observant party member spots a lone cur, that whimpers and withdraws deeper into shadow. With skill checks, a player approaches to find:A hungry stray grateful for a bite, that reveals a secret tunnel it uses to navigate the city. Or the hungry "cur" is companion to a Ranger, judging by the collar he wears. Another Ranger can communicate with him, following him to an injured/dead/captured fellow ranger.The "cur" is a formidable hound badly treated by his owner. It might be a wealthy arrogant merchant, an animal handler in a traveling circus, etc. The hound can become a followefamiliacompanion. [NorthEasternNomad]
  20. A nearby building explodes and trees rapidly grow from the rubble. Bystanders explain that this is the third attack like this in a month, and that they are the work of an anarchist collective of druids that believe cities are blasphemy upon nature. [Jacknerik]
  21. Near the wizard's college is a stand selling ice cream. Occasionally, the bound elemental keeping it coll will try to break free, causing the cart to shake. The bored teenage girl running the stand takes no notice of this. [911roofer]
  22. A miniature stage is set up on the side of a street, within it, small illusions tell the story of great adventures slaying a beast like a magical puppet show. A crowd of children sit on the floor in fron of this and adults stand a little further behind. When it ends, all the kids run off to wherever they're going, and a member of the party feels their purse get a little lighter in the commotion [BobaPhobic]
  23. •A child runs up to you and tries to sneakily stab you. •Her eyes pierce through her long black hair that covers her face. This little girl stares at you. You can feel an evil and malicious presence. [BeboTheMaster]
  24. A doll or easel falls from a nearby multi-story building and nearly lands on the head of someone in the party! Anyone who looks at it feels a faint sense of unease, but it also looks expensive and valuable. You can hear an argument from the loft whose window it seemed to have dropped out of, and soon enough someone will lean out of it and ask the party if they can bring it upstairs, since they aren't finished with their artwork. If pressed, the artist says that he has other matters to attend to and can't come downstairs, but it's urgent that he get that piece back and soon. Is he just rude and bad at interacting with other people? Is he afraid of the outside? Is he in danger, or is he luring the party into some kind of trap? Will he even reward the party for giving him his work back? It's up to the DM. [archDeaconstructor]
  25. 1d4+1 Students of the nearby wizarding academy try out their newly learned spells in the alleyway and accidentaly a firebolt hits the party members. [AdmiralCita]
  26. A man with a strange accent whose clothes incorporate the bones of animals is convincing nearby townsfolk to join him on a hunt on the morrow. Given the way that people are talking about him, he seems to be very convincing and jovial. He's just finished talking to a couple down the street, and he's eyed your party. He seems to be headed your way! [archDeaconstructor]
  27. 2d6 of friendly drunken hobbits ask the party to join their celebration of their newborn family member. They offeer good ale and raspberry flavoured tobacco.qq [AdmiralCita]
  28. A bald man in robes is busy eating from a plate while also kickboxing a couple of brawny-looking folks in the regalia of the city guard. He seems to be making a fool of them. Given the crowd of onlookers, you're not sure if this is some kind of performance or just a hilariously failed attempt by the guard to arrest this man. [archDeaconstructor]
  29. 3d6 of spectral butterflies briefly circle around a party member with the highest wisdom and then fly away. People say it brings good luck, but noone knows. [AdmiralCita]
  30. A famous, beloved explorer will be delivering new relics to the local museum or gallery, and wants to unveil them all in a brand new wing of the building in a few days. One of the menial guilds has backed out on contract, though, so she's short on manpower to actually set everything up and guard the exhibition until opening day. If you're interested, she's hiring- and she'll pay handsomely. Suspiciously handsomely, for menial work. [archDeaconstructor]
  31. Random friendly dog happily brings a leather pouch containing 1d6 silver pieces and 1d4 human fingers. [AdmiralCita]
  32. You come across several guardsmen hoisting a large battering ram so they can heave it against a gate. It seems the city official whose mansion is behind that gate is unwilling to leave- not only are the gates barred, but the window drapes are drawn down, and the doors are bolted shut. They were supposed to show up for an important meeting yesterday, and were going to make a speech today, but no one's heard anything from anyone inside. Most of the locals are worried- though some seem to be happy about it. [archDeaconstructor]
  33. The players hear humming coming from underneath a manhole cover. If they open said manhole cover, they find a male gnome with a monocle and a top hat. He explains that he was trapped down there in a storm and that the manhole cover is a portal to a different realm. If the players walk into it, they end up in limbo. [ThatMedian]
  34. A man in beggars robes appears. 7 tiny canaries with him. He asks the players to spare some food or coin. He is actually Bahamut in human form. If they help him, he grants them his blessing. They have advantage on WIS rolls for the next hour. If they don’t he moves along. If they attack the canaries become Wyvern. After players are subdued Bahamut gives them a lecture on justice and charity. [BraveEagle]
  35. A city-guard is busy giving a lecture to a newbie. They use the players as an example, either positively or negatively, depending on their status in the city's eyes. For example: "Stop and Frisk" if the party are scofflaws, or "Soliciting Bribe" if the setting is somewhat fascist or corrupt. If the city views the players positively, the interaction is along the lines of "Did you see that ludicrous display last night? (Sports)" or "Good day, Squire" or something germaine to the overall plot. ("You be safe out there, I hear the masked bandit has struck again!") It could also be used as a way for the guards to deliver an message/invitation to the players: "Stop by the Station, the Lieutenant would like a word with ye". In an espionage campaign, the Player-Guard interaction may be used to communicate with the team secretly; falsely arresting and then slipping a message, or dragging in to talk in a theatrical manner. It could also be used as an intimidation tactic by a well connected political figure who controls the guards and has made enemies of the players... ("This is a message! *smash!*") [MaxSizeIs]
  36. A gaggle of urchins hurries through the crowd city streets towards the party. One of them makes eye contact, before hurrying past and heading a round a corner. The city guard pushes their way forward asking everyone if they saw which way the kids went. [Tounsley]
  37. The noonday bells only chimes twice before the rope holding the bell snaps and it plummets down the steeple, landing with a resounding gong, blowing the temples door open, and making many townsfolk believe there is devilry afoot. [Tounsley]
  38. While walking by the stocks, one of the prisoners recognizes someone from the party, and asks a favour. Could be something as simple as scratching an itch they can't reach themselves, or perhaps something more involved, [Tounsley]
  39. A intelligent huge mimic on a sturdy roof top of a one story building with other several buildings snug down on both sides. The mimic mainly stays on the edge of the roof draping a part of itself down the side of the tight alley side outside wall. It forms itself as a wet metal ladder. As an added incentive the mimic drops coins from pervious victims a few at a time to bait its ladder. When someone graps hold of the ladder (both hands and a foot hold), the mimic exudes its adhesive and grapples by rolling up its laddeself at the same time. The mimic eats atop the roof. [jjskellie]
  40. A woman is being attacked by thugs. If you ignore her cries for help she gets taken away. If you help her she takes you to her home where she and her sisters reveal themselves as succubi and try to kill you [LordoftheFaff]
  41. You see a drunkard stumbling about. He greets your PCs in a friendly if overly affectionate manner before shuffling off singing at the top of his lungs. [Sobek6]
  42. There is a striped carriage with the number 53 on the side that is someone moving uncontrollably without any houses (or driver for more modern RPG). [need-original-name]
  43. A War-priest with a flaming sword steps in your way. He's limping and looks beaten up but holds himself proudly. "So here it ends." he speaks as a bewildered look slowly enters his face. "You're not them. I'm very sorry, please go along." [MerionLial]
  44. A small critter (of the DM's choice) appears to be causing chaos, as everywhere it scampers people flee in horror.[Ever_Impetuous]
  45. You stumble upon an alleyway chat and discover one stall in a nearby busy market is rigged to detonate in a Fireball when a specific noble approaches. [Ever_Impetuous]
  46. You step in some viscous green goo... and it slithers away from you into a nearby sewer grate. The ground rumbles.[Ever_Impetuous]
  47. The street is literally alive. This part of the city was built over a large Earth Elemental but it doesn't seem bothered to carry people to their destinations. However, it decides to block the adventurers from entering the street. [Ever_Impetuous]
  48. A bird plummets from the sky right on a party member's head (1d4 physical). There is an arrow right through it... and a missive attached to its back. Someone didn't want this getting to its destination [Ever_Impetuous]
80.A street magician decides to turn your party's most anger-prone member into a joke. He uses prestidigitation to cover them in slick oil, change the color of their hair, and untie their shoelaces, all while mocking them.[Ever_Impetuous]
  1. A piano crashes down 1d4 meters away from a party member. It must have been pushed off the balcony of that nearby building. But who would toss a piano out of a balcony?[Ever_Impetuous]
  2. A person explodes in a gout of fire. Then 2 more nearby. A creature is possessing these victims before they ignite. Then the creature turns on the players! It could be that the victims (or at least one of them) are connected somehow. Are there more victims throughout the city? It's clear that the heroes must find this out before it happens again! [MaxSizeIs]
  3. Household "Otto-Servant" warforged automatons have recently become a trend among the well to do. Their inventor sends a message to the players asking for help using an unassuming middleman as as a messenger. It seems the inventor fears for their life, as they narrowly escaped a lethal attack by one of their inventions! Tales of similar attacks spread like wildfire the following days - copycat attacks seem to be happening! Can the players protect the life of the inventor, and discover the conspiracy behind the attacks? [MaxSizeIs]
  4. A rag-picker with his towering cart of discards rushes into your path. They stumble on a cobblestone, bringing the entire trolley crashing down on the street. You see glints amongst the strewn linen and furs ... [ArtyNinja]
  5. A promoter catches sight of the party and seizes the opportunity. Each player must take a DC 10 CHA check or have a wrist-band for the all new bar 'The Whore's Shoe'. [ArtyNinja]
  6. A throng of protestors block the road, bearing banners with slogans such as "Ditch the Witch" and "The hag's a hack". The leaders of the group, a human druid in am impressive headdress, and a dwarf Bard with a powerful voice are getting the frustrated crowd riled up with a powerful speech about the decadence, intransigence and failures of the powers that be. [ArtyNinja]
  7. A few guards march past with a scrawny street urchin in tow. The child is manacled and clearly in pain. [ArtyNinja]
  8. An unkempt mage is staring at a lamp-post, seemingly transfixed. He stands with a relaxed posture and smells of ozone.[ArtyNinja]
  9. You spot a fruit seller dragging a cart through a solid wall and vanish. Inspecting the wall it appears to just be the solid outer wall of a general store.[ArtyNinja]
  10. A street artist is making portraits for a reasonable price. The images seem to have a life of their own, with the faces smiling and winking at passers by. Some complete examples on the flagstones around him showing detailed backgrounds and activity but no actual muse. None the less the frames have the 'depicted' individuals name painted in gold letters. [ArtyNinja]
  11. 3 drunk students from the mages college are causing a ruckus in the street, causing hijinks and hilarity with their cantrips. One of them takes issue with the PCs, mistaking them for a reviled enemy. The gang tries to assert their dominance, and challenges the enemy and their 'minions' to a fight. [ArtyNinja]
  12. A pack of (2d4 +2) rabid dogs bursts from an alley , directly in the path of the party. [ArtyNinja]
  13. A chieftain born aloft on his vast shield by the shoulders of four tattooed warriors is rushed through the crowd, tailed by a Dwarf with a winged helm and a Goliath in striped pantaloons. [ArtyNinja]
  14. A man in long white stockings with a glamorous golden quiff and accompanied by a small white dog disturbs the party to ask them if a hairy man with a black beard wearing a tricorne hat has been through here. Apparently the man has stolen something very dear to him and must be found at once.. [ArtyNinja]
  15. A masked figure in a billowing black cloak leaps across the street from one rooftop to another. Their polished black mail gleams in the light. A smaller figure in a colourful leather jerkin with a quarterstaff strapped to their back jumps after him. [ArtyNinja]
  16. You walk past an elite's compound as an angsty looking teenager emerges from a side-gate. They glance at the players and slouches off. After a minute or so banshee like screams emerge from the building... [ArtyNinja]
  17. A building is being demolished on the street. The wrecking crew are on a break. [ArtyNinja]
  18. A panicked crowd stampedes down the street. In the havoc you see innocents stumble and be crushed by the terrified crowd. Through the wails and screams you can hear one word: Giant. [ArtyNinja]
  19. A sewer collapses into a sinkhole during heavy rains. Half of a neighborhood is now thirty feet underground. In a poor one: many people may be trapped beneath the rubble and possibly drowning.. but only a few heroes care enough to try and save the victims. Will those greedy land-developers get their way and clear out those dirty poor people once and for all? Was this part of a planned attack? In a wealthier neighborhood: a few gold-pieces and trinkets hint that the sinkhole may hide a treasure cache; a wealthy noble might mourn the loss of their precious object-d'art and pay the heroes to delve the hole to retrieve it. Anywhere: a small horde of 3d6 low-level semi-intelligent sewer monsters emerge, shouting abuse at the "sky-demons" who just invaded their home; swarms of vermin; slip-and-slides; and a labyrinthian network of secret tunnels!

  20. A drug addict pleads for money from the players. He is suffering from the shakes, with his eyes darting in separate directions. He stammers unintelligibly in a hoarse voice, wringing his hands desperately. If the players don't help him out, it is revealed the addict is possessed by a Shadow Demon. He has the same stats as a commoner with +2 to DEX, INT, and CHA. He has the same resistances, immunities, vulnerabilities and abilities as a Shadow, and knows the spell Deeper Darkness and Shadow Evocation. [ArtyNinja]

2020.01.05 15:47 green-acorn 25 [M4F] Madrid, Spain. Felices fiestas! Two days free with no plans

I'm currently flying back to Chicago from Italy and stopping through Madrid. I'll have two nights in a hotel alone and had originally planned to just spend the days wandering the parks, going to a museum or two and finding a rock climbing gym to boulder in. However, I just realized the entire city will essentially be shut down for día de los reyes and people will be celebrating. If anyone else is alone or with no plans the next two days and would like some company whether it's just walking around people watching or grabbing a drink/bite to eat, let me know!
A bit about me! Attached is a picture of myself to help put a face to it all. I've lived and grown up all over the world, am fluent in English and Spanish and currently live in Chicago. I'm a freelance photographer but also enjoy rock climbing, shooting pool, going to jazz clubs, sitting in coffee shops and reading or drawing strangers from afar and most kinds of cocktails. I'm also fairly active so if people watching isn't your thing and you'd rather go for a run/bike count me in. Ideally you're someone that is also laid back, open minded, out going but also don't mind or get uncomfortable by sitting in silence.
I've stayed in Madrid a few times so I'd love seeing something new here, whether it be your favorite park bench or a cozy neighborhood spot/bar you enjoy going to. Or if anyone has any suggestions and recommendations I'm open to anything!

Feliz #24Jul amigos.

Hoy se celebra en nuestro país el Día de la Armada Colombiana. El 24 de Julio se conmemora el día de la Armada en recuerdo de la victoria obtenida en la batalla de Maracaibo en 1823, cuando la Fuerza Naval Patriota liderada por el general José Padilla derrotó a la armada realista.

Hoy también se conmemora el natalicio de Simón Bolívar, militar y político venezolano, fundador de las repúblicas de la Gran Colombia y Bolivia.

Compartimos una cita del celebre autor checoslovaco, Franz Kafka.

"Un libro debe ser el hacha que rompa el mar helado que hay dentro de nosotros."

2019.05.20 21:42 Zetsumei7 A tribute to me

I'm so very proud of... me. You should be too. (´∀`)
But seriously, I'm surprised I was able to complete every mission on every Convocation. I've only been playing since mid-January, missed out on MH, Disgaea, etc. (no Rox, no Laharl...) Was F2P the first few months, and only Pact since then (which is almost F2P but I make this distinction so as not to incur the wrath of the Kirito god). On top of that, I was deprived of the wisdom of the community until the last month or two.
I never previously focused on building balanced teams for each element. Rather, the ONLY element I focused on was Light (and by accident, I just built the units I liked and/or that were on a challenge board), thus my other elements sucked. I had no magic swordsmen built up to petrify. My only wind units built up basically were Yomi and Cita. My only fire Ines and Hazel. Water: D'argtanan, Shenmei and Letitia. Thunder: Mei and Deneb. Dark: Rosa and Blanchett.
Yep, that's all the units I had built up. Even my Zahar was only half-built. After hearing about the convocations I knew I had to throw it into overdrive. Spent all my gems to get Carla and Ankh, and my fire/water shards to get them to 75. Went crazy on hard quests, soul shop etc. Spent ALL my zeni and all my AP on gear every week to focus on the two elements of the week while looking up guides on here to see who I should focus on (or just whoever I had close to building up like Kagura). I couldn't have done it without 2x drops, the AP celebration, or gold rush.
The result? Mostly I took until the last day to successfully complete them, with a lot of cursing throughout. I was going to give up on Wind no-merc, but I got home early so gave it another shot... and managed by a hair. So yay!
If anyone else wants to praise me, or I guess if anyone else has a similar story of struggling with the convocations and/or making a drastic build-up of their mono-element teams, share it here! :D

2018.11.04 23:09 A108_net Braj Dipavali lila: Gopis visit Gopal at the Hatari

November 03, 2018 at 05:50PM https://www.a108.net/blogs/entry/25706-braj-dipavali-lila-gopis-visit-gopal-at-the-hatari/ Braj Dipavali lila: Gopis visit Gopal at the Hatari Vrindavan, 04.09.2018 Hatari is celebrated on the same day as Diwali – the last day of the first half of Kartik month. It is a lovely misa lila (accidently-on-purpose meeting) where the gopis come out of their homes bearing their little lamps so that they will be able to catch a glimpse of His astounding beauty face-to-face when ‘purchasing' some of His goodies with their currency of love and devotion. The gopis approach His little hut in line, creating an enchanting “Dīpāvalī, with their line of lights. During this festival, in many Vaishnavas' homes you can see a tiny set of scales and weights next to Bal Gopal. HATARI – Shri Thakurji's Shop As the season gets colder and darker so the festivals of Vraja impart warmth and light for the Lord's comfort. Krishna wears warmer, brighter clothes and tiny oil lamps dispel the darkness. Since loving exchange is the central theme of all the Vraja festivals (Utsav), new and seasonably suitable arrangements are always being made. The Hatari is a little hut arranged like a shop. These are a few of the musical descriptions of the pastime: Raga Kanharo dipadana de hatari baithe nanda baba ke satha nana vidha ke meva ana bantata apne hatha vividha singara pahare pata bhusana aura candana diya matha nandadasa prabhu sagarina age giri govardhana natha Translation: Krishna lights all the little lamps and sits in the Hatari with His father Nanda Baba. He distributes with His own hands many kinds of sweets and dried fruits. He is wearing many kinds of beautiful garments and jewels and His head is adorned with sandalwood paste. Nandadas' Lord is above all the Lord of Mount Govardhan, which nourishes the cows. Raga Kanharo hatari baithe srigopala ratna jatita ki hatari banai hira motina parama visala dala dallaiyya aura kulaiya bhara bhara dhare pakavana rasala pana phula sondhe sahita saba bantata de de nanda ke lala ramavali premavali lalita candravali brija mangala bala calo sakhi jaham paintha lagi hai becata hain janam gokula pala saba sundari grha grhate aim nirakhata naina visala govinda prabhu priya cita coryo hai bandhi prema ki pala Gopal is sitting in the Hatari studded with diamonds and huge pearls. Inside are small and large baskets full of tasty foodstuffs. Nanda's boy distributes them all together with betal leaves, flowers and perfume oil. Rama-vali, Premävali, Lalitä and Chandra-vali; the lovely auspicious young girls of Vraja, say to each other, “Come on friend, lets go to the store where the Lord, the protector of Gokul, is a shopkeeper!” The beauties come from their homes, just to look at His lovely large eyes. Govindadas says, his Lord has stolen the minds of His darling and caught Her in the net of his love.

2017.09.13 22:06 raicopk Thoughts on latest Catalonia-Spain situation

About a week ago after seven years of offering Madrid dialogue (was never accepted by spanish governament), catalan governament passed a referendum law that aims at making possible an independence referendum for Catalonia for the 1st of October. Spanish governament, as well with Iraq over Kurdistan's referendum, mantain that its illegal under their constitution, but both regional governaments say they will make the referendums true no matter what.
Spanish governament has been carring for months a judicial offensive towards proreferendum forces, from condemning politicians for the 2014's non-binding referendum such as the one South Tyrol had, or even starting procedures against parliment MPs because of allowing a political debate (unionist proreferendum members such as Nuet, from EUiA party, were sent on trial too in this case).
This week, spanish police raided various printing press companies seeking for ballots. After that, threats continued, this time to referèndum volunteers. By then, it was the 11th of September, and as every year, independentists carried out Europe's biggest current demonstrations, one milion of people (of a 7milions region) rallied on the streets according to Guardia Urbana.
By now, +700 mayors (+75% of Catalonia mayors) have shown support for the referendum, and spanish court has cited them to trial and threatened them to be arrested if they didnt show up, after other actings such as warning piblic catalan tv director of criminal charges for informing of the referendum (other private media was threatened aswell), suspending an event in Madrid in support of the referendum (which was being held by the spanish unionist party Podemos, a clear blow of freedom of expression), the citing on trial of Trapero, the Mosso's chief (catalan police), which had earlier defended the celebration of the referendum, or the spsnish police shutting down referendum's website, something at what catalan governament reacted opening five new ones.
Meanwhile, though, fascist organitzations such as Fundación Francisco Franco not only mantain their websites but keep getting subsidies, not surprisingly since Spain is ruled by a party that was literally founded by a fascist regimr minister.
I clearly see it as a path towards Erdogan-used measures, but what do you all think about the topic?

2017.09.03 01:09 autotldr Cassini spacecraft's grand finale: Scientists make music from Saturn's moons, rings

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 26%. (I'm a bot)
New Delhi: To celebrate the grand finale of NASA's Cassini spacecraft next month, astrophysicists have created music from the Saturn's moons and rings - converting their rhythmic orbits into musical octaves.
The Cassini spacecraft has been collecting data while orbiting Saturn since its arrival in 2004 and is now in the throes of a final death spiral.
After centuries of looking with awe and wonder at the beauty of Saturn and its rings, we can now listen to them, scientists at the University of Toronto in Canada said.
"To celebrate the Grand Finale of NASA's Cassini mission next month, we converted Saturn's moons and rings into two pieces of music," said Matt Russo, a postdoctoral researcher at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics.
"Wherever there is resonance there is music, and no other place in the solar system is more packed with resonances than Saturn," said Russo.
"Saturn's magnificent rings act like a sounding board that launches waves at locations that harmonise with the planet's many moons, and some pairs of moons are themselves locked in resonances," Dan Tamayo, a postdoctoral researcher at CITA. The musical notes and rhythms both come from the orbital motion of Saturn's moons along with the orbits of the trillions of small particles that make up the ring system.

News section:

Original News

¡Que viva el Rey! hace una hora El Rey Guillermo Portero de LumériCo los invita cordialmente, sus leales súbditos, a participar en su coronación y celebrar su ilimitada codicia y la traición a la gente de México. Hemos coordinado la publicación de información que demuestra que Portero es una víbora, que hace ya mucho tiempo ha saqueado las riquezas de nuestro país para su propio bien. Ha corrompido a nuestro gobierno, convertido a nuestros hermanas y hermanos en mendigos, y no se detendrá hasta tener al país entero bajo su dominio. Pero nosotros, Los Muertos, no soportaremos la celebración de su reino de corrupción. ¡Le demostraremos a nuestros nuevos conquistadores quien tomará el futuro de nuestro país! El primero de noviembre, derrumbaremos al Rey Víbora y celebraremos la recuperación de nuestro hogar.

Translation:

LONG LIVE THE KING! King Guillermo Portero from Lumérico cordially invites you, his loyal subjects, to participate in his coronation and to celebrate his unlimited greediness and betrayal of the people of México. We have coordinated the publication of information that proves that Portero is a snake that has been, for a very long time, ransacking the riches of our country for his own benefit. He has corrupted our government, turned our brothers and sisters into beggars, and he won’t stop until he has the whole country under his rule. But we, Los Muertos, won’t support the celebration of his realm of corruption. We will prove to our new conquerors who’s going to take the future of our country! The first of November, we will dethrone King Snake and celebrate the taking back of our home.

Asunto: Re: Equipo de seguridad para viajes de ejecutivos
María, Gracias por todo lo que haces por nuestra seguridad. ¿Cuál es el equipo razonable más pequeño que podríamos mandar con nuestros ejecutivos por el resto del año? La seguridad es lo más importante, pero no debemos ser intimidantes o aterradores. Como nota personal, aprecio el tiempo y la atención que dedicas a nuestra protección, pero no permitas que sea a costa de tu propia paz mental. Después de que la revelación termine, puedes utilizar mi tiempo compartido en la Riviera por una semana. Lo mereces.

Asunto: Re: Equipo de seguridad para viajes de ejecutivos
Señor: Gracias por la oferta. Una vez que el trabajo esté terminado, la aceptaré con gusto. Para eventos públicos sin seguridad propia, recomiendo 2 especialistas del orden público, 1 guardaespaldas personal y 1 conductor en contacto constante con la central. Todos, excepto el guardaespaldas, pueden mantener su distancia del ejecutivo si así lo prefiere. Pero a veces tener la protección visible hace el trabajo por sí solo.

María, Thank you for everything you do four our safety. What’s the smallest team we could reasonably send with our executive staff for the rest of the year? Safety is the most important thing, but we don’t want to come across as intimidating or terrifying. As a personal note, I appreciate the time and attention you dedicate to our protection, but let it not be at the expense of your own peace of mind. After the reveals ends, you can use my shared time in the Riviera for a week. You deserve it.

Sir: Thank you for the offer. One the job is done, I’ll gladly take it. For public events without their own security, I recommend 2 law enforcement specialists, 1 personal bodyguard and 1 driver in constant contact with central. Everyone, except the bodyguards, can keep their distance from the executive if they so desire. But sometimes having protection on sights gets the job done on its own.

Asunto: Re: Business Proposal
Mr. Portero,
I have conveyed the contents of our latest discussion with the executive directors and they are all in agreement in principle on the framework for a deal. Of course there will be a lot of discussion and communication in the coming days, but I am optimistic that we can reach a mutually beneficial understanding. I understand your concerns over the recent press about our Rio de Janeiro development, however I can assure you that this is just a blip on the radar and that we are taking care of it. And of course, we are more than happy to keep our negotiations private until such time that you feel comfortable in discussing them with the public. And of course, we are more than happy to assist with smoothing over any conflicts that might come up in opposition of our proposals.
Sincerely,
Sanjay

"El Comité Federal del PSOE decidirá este domingo, salvo enorme sorpresa, facilitar a través de la abstención una nueva investidura de Mariano Rajoy. Todo apunta a que la victoria de quienes defienden la abstención será clara en el Comité. Los cálculos de la gestora son que la abstención logre uno 155 votos, frente a unos 75 de quienes abogan por mantener el 'no' al candidato del PP. Si se confirma esta previsión, la cúpula del partido optará por una opción a la que se han opuesto de forma abrumadora los militantes socialistas en las dos últimas semanas.
infoLibre solicitó en dos ocasiones, durante esta semana, datos oficiales a la gestora que dirige el PSOE sobre el número de reuniones celebradas. No hubo respuesta. Lo cierto es que en la prensa local y regional se han publicado multitud de noticias sobre los debates en las agrupaciones socialistas, que además en muchos casos han hecho públicas sus resoluciones. De forma que, pese a la opacidad oficial de la gestora, este periódico ha podido repasar provincia a provincia lo que ha ocurrido en esos encuentros.
El resultado es que se han reunido al menos 216 agrupaciones locales del PSOE desde que dimitió Pedro Sánchez como secretario general, en el Comité Federal del 1 de octubre, tras salir derrotada su propuesta de celebrar de forma urgente un congreso extraordinario del partido. El PSOE tiene oficialmente 4.395 agrupaciones en toda España, aunque más del 80% corresponden a pequeñas localidades donde el número de militantes no llega a los 40. Por tanto, aunque sólo se hayan producido debates sobre la investidura en un 5% de las agrupaciones, lo cierto es que en su mayoria son aquellas donde el partido tiene mayor número de afiliados. No obstante, también hay que tener en cuenta otro hecho que destacan dirigentes próximos a la gestora: las agrupaciones que han convocado reuniones son básicamente aquellas donde mayor oposición había a la abstención.
Es prácticamente imposible encontrar alguna agrupación donde la mayoría de los asistentes se hayan inclinado por la abstención, que es la postura que defienden los dos principales dirigentes del partido: el presidente de la gestora, Javier Fernández, y la presidenta andaluza, Susana Díaz. En un puñado de agrupaciones no se impuso con claridad ninguna de las dos posturas. Pero en la inmensa mayoría de las 216 agrupaciones venció de forma rotunda el 'no es no' defendido por el PSOE desde las elecciones del 26J, en muchos casos con un apoyo de más del 80% de los militantes que se expresaron.
Desde el 1 de octubre también se han convocado al menos 6 comités regionales y 11 ejecutivas provinciales, es decir, órganos de dirección en sus territorios respectivos. En estos encuentros las opiniones se han mostrado mucho más divididas. Se confirma así, por tanto, que cuanto más se sube en el escalafón de poder orgánico, más fácil es encontrar apoyos a la abstención.
A continuación, infoLibre recopila las reuniones celebradas por los militantes y dirigentes socialistas en cada una de las 17 comunidades autónomas.
ANDALUCÍA
Andalucía es una de las federaciones donde la dirección se posiciona con mayor claridad a favor de la abstención. Sin embargo, un continuo goteo de críticas y expresiones de descontento evidencian malestar en diversas asambleas. En Dos Hermanas (Sevilla) se aprobó el 13 de octubre una resolución en la que se reclama una consulta no vinculante a la militancia sobre la posición ante la investidura y un congreso extraordinario antes de finalizar el año. En Jerez de la Frontera (Cádiz) existió ivisión de opiniones: fuentes socialistas señalaron que hubo “una mayoría de voces por el no a Rajoy” entre la militancia de base, mientras que los cargos orgánicos fueron los que respaldaron la postura oficial.
El rechazo a la abstención también fue apoyado de forma mayoritaria en las asambleas de Fuengirola (Málaga), Alcalá de Guadaíra (Sevilla) y Almería. Sin embargo, las dos últimas reuniones estuvieron cargadas de polémica. En la primera, el punto no estaba en el orden del día, por lo que fue impugnada. En el segundo caso, los defensores de la abstención publicaron un escrito en el que recordaban que no se había sometido ningún texto a votación.
Sí que se votó y aprobó en Cádiz el miércoles por la noche una dura resolución a favor del no a una nueva legislatura en manos del PP. El texto rechaza “el gravísimo y lamentable espectáculo que se dio el pasado Comité Federal”, pide a la gestora un congreso federal urgente, “exige” primarias para designar un nuevo secretario general y, por último, “exige” a la formación socialista que vote “NO” –en el escrito viene recogido en mayúsculas– a Rajoy y, en caso de cambiar el sentido del voto, que se haga “mediante consulta vinculante a la militancia”.
Mientras tanto, algunos órganos de dirección de los socialistas andaluces a nivel provincial y regional se han ido reuniendo durante el mes de octubre. Sólo tres días después del último Comité Federal, el 4 de octubre, la Ejecutiva Provincial del PSOE de Cádiz abordó la crisis del partido y recalcó, en palabras de la secretaria general de los socialistas gaditanos, que “no tocaba desarrollar un congreso”, algo que defendía el sector afín a Pedro Sánchez. Una línea en la que se pronunció dos días después su órgano homólogo en Málaga, en el que se apuntó que es el momento de defender “lo mejor para el interés de España” y se confió “en el trabajo” que desarrolla la gestora federal.
Pero, sin ninguna duda, la reunión más sonada fue la de la Comisión Ejecutiva Regional del PSOE-A. Por primera vez se pronunciaban abiertamente a favor de la abstención para dejar gobernar a Mariano Rajoy. Y lo hizo a través del número dos del partido, Juan Cornejo, que, en rueda de prensa, aseguró que “tan importante es gobernar como liderar la oposición”. Y añadió: “A mí no me da urticaria la palabra abstención si resulta que es la única opción de evitar unas elecciones”.
ARAGÓN
Las agrupaciones locales de Zaragoza que celebraron reuniones en el mes de octubre también formalizaron su apuesta mayoritaria por el no a Rajoy. Tanto la agrupación socialista de Zaragoza San Braulio como la agrupación Norte del PSOE en la capital aragonesa, expresaron su rechazo a un gobierno presidido por el PP.
En Huesca, la Ejecutiva Provincial se reunió a principios de mes para abrir el debate sobre la gobernabilidad, que concluyó en un total apoyo a la posición de la gestora.
ASTURIAS
En Asturias fueron convocadas una treintena de agrupaciones locales que alimentaron la división entre los socialistas del territorio. No obstante, las agrupaciones de mayor peso político y número de militantes como Siero, Langreo, Laviana, San Martín del Rey Aurelio, Corvera, Aller o Castrillón manifestaron su preferencia clara a favor del no. En Gijón, por su parte, la asamblea celebrada evidenció las opiniones discrepantes de quienes acudieron.
BALEARES Y CANARIAS
En las islas la postura oficial de las asambleas locales, provinciales y regionales no ha trascendido más allá de la mantenida por la secretaria general del PSOE insular, Francina Armengol, quien defiende el no a la investidura del candidato conservador.
Tampoco han trascendido detalles sobre reuniones de agrupaciones locales en Canarias, aunque se pudieron apreciar discrepancias tras la caída de Sánchez. Mientras que su secretario de Organización, Julio Cruz, había mantenido que la postura de la federación canaria era la abstención, los diputados Sebastián Franquis y Tamara Raya le pidieron a través de Twitter a Cruz “que hable en su nombre”.
CANTABRIA
En el caso de Cantabria la postura oficial de los socialistas se plasma en un rotundo no a facilitar la investidura de Mariano Rajoy, tal y como señalaron tras la reunión organizada por su Comisión Ejecutiva Regional. No obstante, añadieron su voluntad de "respetar y acatar" las decisiones aprobadas por los órganos del partido.
CASTILLA-LA MANCHA
Es una de las comunidades donde menos reuniones de agrupaciones se han producido. La militancia socialista de Albacete –donde se han recogido firmas y se ha celebrado una reunión de coordinación a favor del no– decidió por unanimidad mediante su Ejecutiva Provincial, y a propuesta del secretario general en la provincia, que el Comité Provincial tendría lugar después de que se celebren tanto el Comité Federal como el Regional.
En Cuenca, por su parte, la Ejecutiva Provincial se reunió a principios del mes sin ninguna novedad en su postura después de las dos dimisiones que se produjeron tras la marcha de Pedro Sánchez.
CASTILLA Y LEÓN
En Castilla y León han sido más numerosos los pronunciamientos en contra de facilitar cuatro años más de un Gobierno conservador. Así, las agrupaciones de Sanabria (Zamora), Carballeda (Zamora), Fuentesaúco (Zamora) y Guarrate (Zamora) se pronunciaron a favor del “no es no”. También rechazaron a Rajoy en la asamblea local de Salamanca, en las organizadas en Cabezón (Valladolid) y Viana (Valladolid) y en la celebrada en Cuéllar (Segovia), donde se rechazó la decisión adoptada en la Ejecutiva Provincial que los socialistas segovianos reunieron el 8 de octubre y en la que se fijó la postura de “contribuir y permitir la gobernabilidad del país”.
Pero no fueron los únicos órganos de dirección provincial convocados durante este mes. La ejecutiva socialista leonesa, que se reunió el pasado miércoles con el objetivo de ajustar la posición de sus representantes en el Comité Federal del domingo, adoptó la decisión de que finalmente todos ellos acudan al cónclave con libertad de voto. En el caso de Zamora, la Comisión Ejecutiva Provincial se reunió sólo un día después de la caída de Sánchez con el objetivo de que Antonio Plaza explicase por qué votó contra las tesis del ex secretario general cuando la asamblea local celebrada en Zamora culminó con un apoyo a Sánchez.
CATALUÑA
La posición de los socialistas catalanes es una de las más claras y unánimes desde que el pasado 15 de octubre Miquel Iceta fuese reelegido líder del PSC. El partido ha señalado que, en caso de que la decisión que se adopte definitivamente en el Comité Federal del domingo apunte a la abstención, la Ejecutiva del PSC convocará "en 24 horas" a su Consell Nacional, máximo órgano de decisiones, y propondrá que se adopte una resolución que inste a sus diputados en el Congreso a votar contra Rajoy.
CEUTA Y MELILLA
En Melilla y Ceuta no han trascendido reuniones de sus agrupaciones. Sin embargo, en el caso de la primera ciudad autónoma, la líder de los socialistas melillenses, Gloria Rojas, aseguró el pasado lunes que respaldarán el no a la investidura de Rajoy y afirmó que esa es la opinión mayoritaria de los militantes de la agrupación.
En el caso de la segunda, el secretario general de los socialistas ceutíes aseguró a comienzos del mes de octubre en una entrevista que su federación celebraría un “Comité Regional” y haría una “asamblea informativa”. Pero, por el momento, no consta la celebración ni del de Comité ni de la asamblea.
COMUNIDAD DE MADRID
Los socialistas madrileños expresaron su negativa a la abstención a través de una asamblea local celebrada por la agrupación de Alcorcón el pasado miércoles 19 de octubre, que resultó en una demanda de consulta a la militancia en caso de que finalmente se produzca una abstención.
El mismo miércoles, la Ejecutiva Regional de Madrid ratificó su no a Mariano Rajoy y apostó por "seguir defendiendo vías alternativas que supongan no ser muleta de un gobierno del Partido Popular".
COMUNIDAD VALENCIANA
La Comunidad Valenciana es uno de los territorios donde más se puede apreciar la brecha existente entre las bases y los órganos de dirección del partido. En el último mes, un total de 45 agrupaciones locales han aprobado resoluciones a favor del "no es no" que defendía el ex secretario general socialista. A estas se suman las 10 organizaciones comarcales –Camp de Morvedre, Ribera Alta, Ribera Baixa, La Costera, Baix Vinalopó, L'Horta Sud, Utiel-Requena, Plana Alta, Plana Baixa, L'Alcalatén– que han reflejado por escrito su rechazo a la abstención tras reunir a sus Ejecutivas.
Además, hasta la fecha, sólo se ha reunido para abordar este asunto en todo el territorio la Ejecutiva Nacional del PSPV. Durante la cita, la mayoría de los miembros que tomaron la palabra se decantaron por la opción de la abstención, aunque tampoco faltaron defensores del no a Mariano Rajoy ni voces indecisas, como la del representante del PSPV en la gestora nacional, José Muñoz.
EUSKADI
La agrupación local de Basauri, en Bizkaia, emitió el pasado 6 de octubre un comunicado en el que subrayaba su inclinación hacia la postura de "no es no".
Por su parte, la secretaria general de los socialistas vascos, Idoia Mendia, aseguró el pasado lunes 17 que defenderá el no a Rajoy como resultado del acuerdo unánime de la Ejecutiva Regional del País Vasco.
EXTREMADURA
En la localidad de Cáceres, la la agrupación socialista celebró una asamblea extraordinaria el 18 de octubre para analizar la situación política. Aunque la reunión no contó con una votación ni registró una postura oficial, el portavoz del grupo municipal, Luis Salaya, mostró su rechazo a la abstención, mientras que el secretario general de la agrupación, Vicente Valle, apuntó al consenso sobre la necesidad de que se celebre un congreso.
Por otro lado, en una reunión mantenida el pasado jueves, la agrupación socialista de Coria, en Cáceres, acordó por unanimidad trasladar su no rotundo a facilitar la investidura de Mariano Rajoy como presidente del Gobierno.
En la localidad de Badajoz, por el contrario, la asamblea celebrada la noche del 11 de octubre no resultó en una posición clara aunque sí apuntó a acatar la decisión que se tome el domingo por el Comité Federal del partido.
Galicia
Los socialistas gallegos se han movilizado desde sus bases mediante la celebración de encuentros a nivel local en las cuatro provincias. La Ejecutiva local de la ciudad de Ourense reunió el jueves a los militantes socialistas en una asamblea extraordinaria que terminó con la victoria aplastante del no a Rajoy, tal y como consta en el acta final de la reunión.
En la ciudad de A Coruña, el debate interno generado el jueves en una reunión informal de la agrupación local fue mayor que en la de sus vecinos ourensanos. Mientras que la secretaria general de la agrupación, Mar Barcón, defendió la abstención, una mayoría ajustada de quienes intervinieron expresaron su apuesta por el no. En Ferrol, la polémica redundó en el impedimento de registrar un voto con el sentir mayoritario de los asistentes a la reunión celebrada el jueves, que pese a cerrarse sin postura oficial alguna, se inclinó hacia el rechazo de un gobierno conservador.
En la ciudad de Pontevedra, la ejecutiva local convocó a principios de octubre una asamblea para consultar la posición de los 290 militantes de la agrupación, quienes por el momento han expresado su inclinación hacia el no únicamente a través de una recopilación de firmas.
El 1 de octubre, tras la dimisión de Pedro Sánchez, la provincia de Lugo reunió el apoyo de un total de 47 agrupaciones locales que, mediante un comunicado impulsado por la Comisión Xestora Provincial, manifestaron su apoyo a Sánchez y su apuesta por unas primarias y la celebración de un Congreso extraordinario.
En cuanto a las ejecutivas provinciales, además de la lucense, A Coruña mantuvo una reunión el 1 de octubre para expresar su apoyo a Pedro Sánchez y por tanto el rechazo a una investidura de Rajoy.
En Ourense, por su parte, los partidarios del no convocaron una reunión el 18 de octubre en la que, si bien no hubo votación oficial, quedó constatado el rechazo mayoritario de las bases.
La Rioja
La comunidad riojana, por su parte, reafirma su apuesta por el no en al menos una veintena de las 41 agrupaciones locales que existen, entre ellas la de Logroño.
Precisamente esta postura es la que resultó de la reunión de su Comisión Ejecutiva Regional, tal y como aseguró el líder de los socialistas riojanos y exsecretario de Organización del partido, César Luena.
MURCIA
En Murcia, el sentir mayoritario de las bases también se posicionó en contra de la abstención de los diputados socialistas en el Congreso. Según anunció el secretario general del PSOE-RM, Rafael González Tovar, se han celebrado durante el último mes asambleas locales en 46 de las 61 agrupaciones del territorio, el 75% del total. En este sentido, el también portavoz del Grupo Parlamentario Socialista en la Asamblea murciana señaló que la posición “mayoritaria” de las bases ha sido la de mantener el no a Rajoy, una postura que, según añadió, él mismo comparte. Y ofreció cifras: aunque en “unas cuantas” agrupaciones el rechazo a la abstención fue del 60%, en la “mayoría” están “por encima del 90%” a favor de esta postura.
Con todas estos datos sobre la mesa, el secretario general de los socialistas murcianos aseguró que sometería los resultados a una Comisión Ejecutiva Regional de forma que la posición que vaya a representar en el Comité Federal del domingo “coincida con el sentimiento de la Federación de Murcia y con el sentimiento de la militancia de los socialistas murcianos”.
Navarra
La Ejecutiva Regional de Navarra decidió defender el no a Rajoy en el Comité Federal que se celebrará el domingo. "Desde nuestra experiencia propia consideramos que para ser alternativa de progreso no podemos permitir que gobierne la derecha", destacan en un comunicado, donde además exponen la necesidad de convocar un congreso a la mayor brevedad."

2016.07.06 10:28 EDUARDOMOLINA Cuadros intermedios del PSOE impulsan una tercera vía liderada por el diputado Ignacio Urquizu. Consideran que ni Sánchez ni Susana Díaz son la mejor alternativa para liderar el futuro del partido y tampoco ven conveniente un liderazgo "de transición".

http://www.infolibre.es/noticias/politica/2016/07/06/cuadros_intermedios_psoe_impulsan_tercera_via_liderada_por_urquizu_52114_1012.html
" Ni Pedro Sánchez ni Susana Díaz. Un grupo de cargos intermedios del PSOE trabaja para articular una tercera vía liderada por Ignacio Urquizu, diputado electo por Teruel, de cara al próximo Congreso Federal del PSOE en el que se elegirá al nuevo secretario general. Entre los impulsores figuran miembros de distintas federaciones socialistas, varios diputados electos el pasado 26J y también algún europarlamentario. Comparten un "componente generacional" y un deseo de renovar el partido.
Urquizu (Teruel, 1978) es doctor en Sociología y profesor en excedencia de la Complutense. Colaboró con la Fundación Alternativas, donde fue subdirector del área de Estudios de Progreso. En 2015 coordinó el seminario de análisis político de Metroscopia antes de convertirse, en mayo, en candidato a diputado al Parlamento de Aragón. Fue el número tres por Teruel y logró acta. En septiembre dejó la Cámara autonómica y pasó al Senado. Tras su breve paso por la Cámara alta fue elegido en cabeza de lista al Congreso por Teruel en las generales del 20D y el 26J. En ambas ocasiones obtuvo escaño.
Las fuentes consultadas por este diario apuntan que en las últimas semanas se han celebrado una serie de reuniones para comprobar "con qué apoyos podría contar" una hipotética candidatura a la Secretaría General liderada por Urquizu. En cualquier caso, cuadros próximos al diputado aragonés insisten a este diario en que la iniciativa está en una fase "incipiente" y que la decisión de competir en el cónclave no se ha tomado todavía: "Puede que las conversaciones no cuajen en nada". Eso sí, subrayan que ni el actual secretario general ni la presidenta andaluza representan la mejor opción para liderar el futuro de los socialistas.
Este martes infoLibre contactó con Ignacio Urquizu para pedir su valoración sobre la gestación de esa tercera vía. El parlamentario socialista declinó hacer ninguna declaración en torno al tema porque "faltan meses para que se celebre el congreso del partido". Además, señaló que ahora lo fundamental es resolver la cuestión de la "gobernabilidad" tras las elecciones generales del 26J, cuyos resultados se analizarán en el Comité Federal que se celebrará este sábado.
Renovación generacional
Para los promotores de esta vía, Sánchez y Díaz no son las personas idóneas para dirigir el PSOE. En el caso del actual secretario general, uno de los motivos son sus resultados electorales. Sánchez tomó las riendas del partido en julio de 2014, justo después de las elecciones europeas en las que los socialistas obtuvieron un 23% de los votos. En los comicios locales de mayo de 2015 el partido subió ligeramente hasta el 25%. En las generales del 20D y el 26J, con Sánchez como cabeza de cartel, cayó hasta el 22% y el 22,7%, su mínimo histórico.
A estos datos se suma, según comentan varios cargos a este diario, la "cada vez mayor oposición interna" que tiene el secretario general en el seno del PSOE. Desde su ascenso a la Secretaría General el liderazgo de Sánchez ha estado cuestionado en varias ocasiones. Las últimas semanas de especial tensión se sucedieron después de las generales de diciembre.
En el caso de Susana Díaz, los impulsores de la tercera vía indican que es un "valor importante" para el partido, pero consideran que su "concepto de España y su idea de liderazgo quizá no se corresponde con la sociedad actual", de carácter más "urbano y tecnológico". Estas voces recuerdan que si decidiera dar el salto a la política nacional se enfrentaría a las dificultades de tener que hacer oposición sin ser diputada, lo que podría complicar su proyección pública.
Dichas fuentes agregan, finalmente, que con la salida de Susana Díaz de la Junta de Andalucía podría darse "una situación complicada" en esa comunidad. Ciudadanos, socio de Gobierno del PSOE andaluz, ha advertido de que habría que renegociar el acuerdo por el que invistió a Díaz si esta diera el salto a la política nacional. "Al final podría acabar perdiendo en Madrid y en Andalucía", resumen fuentes socialistas.
Un liderazgo de futuro
Los miembros de esa tercera vía consultados por infoLibre apuntan que una de las posibles opciones de cara al Congreso Federal sería la de Javier Fernández, el presidente del Principado de Asturias y líder de los socialistas en esa comunidad. Fernández es un hombre ampliamente respetado en el partido, y tampoco es esta la primera ocasión en la que se especula con su nombre como candidato a liderar el partido.
Quienes trabajan en activar la opción de Urquizu consideran, sin embargo, que elegir a Fernández sería una maniobra similar a la adoptada en el congreso del PSOE de Sevilla, celebrado en 2012, cuando Rubalcaba se impuso por estrecho margen a Carme Chacón. Aquella decisión se entendió como la victoria de un líder "de transición". Javier Fernández, a juicio de varios cuadros medios consultados por este diario, representaría ahora un valor similar, "y el PSOE no puede estar en constante transición", añaden.
Ese es el estado en el que se encuentra el partido desde que José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero anunciara su salida. Precisamente la forma en la que se ha comenzado a articular la tercera vía que podría representar Urquizu recuerda al surgimiento de Nueva Vía, el grupo de jóvenes socialistas en el que figuraban, entre otros, Trinidad Jiménez, y que aupó a Zapatero a la Secretaría General en 2000, tras la dimisión de Joaquín Almunia y frente a José Bono, al que derrotó por sólo nueve votos.
Congreso sin fecha
Los partidarios de Urquizu admiten que, incluso si se decidiera a dar un paso adelante, se enfrenta a varias dificultades. La principal, en palabras de un cargo regional, que "para ir a un congreso se necesita poder territorial". El grueso de los impulsores de esta tercera vía son cuadros intermedios del partido, y para que la posible candidatura ganara opciones requeriría del respaldo barones autonómicos.
El congreso federal del PSOE sigue por ahora sin fecha tras ser objeto de tensiones en el pasado reciente. En realidad, debería haberse organizado como tarde en febrero de 2016, cuatro años después del ganado por Rubalcaba. Inmediatamente después de las elecciones del 20D, surgieron voces en el partido que reclamaron su celebración en las fechas en las que tocaba. La dirección federal, en cambio, logró imponer su criterio de elegir al nuevo secretario general cuando se considerara oportuno a la vista del "contexto político".
El cónclave llegó incluso a tener una fecha provisional: la dirección del partido y los barones acordaron, a finales de enero, celebrarlo entre el 20 y el 22 de mayo. Sin embargo, la imposibilidad de formar Gobierno y la repetición de las elecciones derivó en un nuevo aplazamiento. A principios de abril, el Comité Federal aprobó por unanimidad postergar la cita sin fecha fija y hasta que haya un Ejecutivo. De acuerdo con el reglamento de congresos del PSOE, la convocatoria debe producirse como mínimo con dos meses de adelanto sobre la fecha de celebración.
En Ferraz barajan ahora la posibilidad de celebrar el congreso en octubre, aunque ese mes es probable que se celebren las elecciones autonómicas vascas y gallegas, lo que podría complicar el calendario. Pero se han producido tantos cambios en este asunto, siempre ligados a las batallas internas entre Pedro Sánchez y Susana Díaz, que nadie se atreve a hablar con seguridad sobre la fecha."

2016.07.01 11:13 EDUARDOMOLINA Errejón busca frenar el avance hacia una alianza duradera entre Podemos e IU. La necesidad de recuperar el discurso transversal de Podemos –lo que implica marcar distancias con IU. Pablo Iglesias defiende que la coalición debe de ser el primer paso hacia una alianza duradera y estable.

http://www.infolibre.es/noticias/politica/2016/06/30/errejon_busca_frenar_avance_hacia_una_alianza_duradera_entre_podemos_iu_51898_1012.html
"El número dos de Podemos, Íñigo Errejón, quiere echar el freno al proceso de acercamiento del partido morado a IU. El secretario de Política de Podemos siempre ha visto con recelos esta alianza, y este miércoles deslizó en una entrevista que la confluencia "parece no haber funcionado" y "habrá que evaluar" la conveniencia de mantenerla. Las próximas citas electorales son las autonómicas de Galicia y el País Vasco el próximo otoño, y los errejonistas tendrán ocasión de mostrar sus dudas en la reunión del Consejo Ciudadano –el máximo órgano de dirección de Podemos entre congresos– el próximo día 9, con la vista puesta en la celebración de una Asamblea Ciudadana –un congreso– extraordinaria que es probable que se celebre antes de fin de año.
Los malos resultados electorales de Podemos en las elecciones del pasado día 26 han reabierto el debate sobre la confluencia y, fundamentalmente, sobre cómo debe llevarse ésta a cabo. Pese a que los dirigentes insisten en que existen mutltitud de matices entre unas y otras posturas, lo cierto es que hay, fundamentalmente, dos posiciones dentro de Podemos en relación al pacto con IU: la de aquellos que piensan, como el líder Pablo Iglesias, que la coalición debe de ser el primer paso hacia una alianza duradera y estable, y la de quienes opinan que lo mejor es conformar, como mucho, un "matrimonio de conveniencia" con IU –en palabras del exsecretario de Organización, Sergio Pascual, muy cercano a Errejón– manteniendo la identidad y el discurso diferenciado de Podemos, basado en la transversalidad.
Estos dos diferentes planteamientos ya existían antes de la firma del acuerdo de coalición para las generales y el debate se ha reavivado en los últimos días. Mientras Iglesias y el secretario de Organización de Podemos, Pablo Echenique, se han esforzado en afirmar que la alianza con IU será duradera en el tiempo, los errejonistas se han mostrado partidarios de no atarse a una organización que, entienden, limita el discurso transversal de Podemos y lo enclava en el espacio de la izquierda clásica. "Hay que evitar quedar atrapados en etiquetas más estrechas", planteó a este respecto Errejón este miércoles.
Las dos visiones se encontrarán el próximo 9 de julio en una reunión del Consejo Ciudadano estatal –que reúne a los 63 miembros de la dirección, los 17 barones autonómicos y a Iglesias– que servirá para analizar los datos del análisis que está realizando Podemos para conocer con detalle los motivos de su batacazo electoral. Allí también habrá que decidir sobre la conveniencia de repetir la alianza con IU de cara a las elecciones vascas –el proyecto gallego de En Marea, que reúne a Podemos, IU y Anova, siempre ha generado mayor consenso en la dirección–, ya que los errejonistas no tienen claro que les vaya a favorecer.
Así lo asegura uno de los barones autonómicos cercanos al número dos del partido, que entiende que Podemos está "habilitado" por sus bases para mantener la alianza con IU en las autonómicas en el País Vasco pero afirma que la decisión no está tomada, pese a que Echenique dio por segura el pasado lunes la repetición de la coalición. "Habrá que verlo el día 9, pero yo no sé si es lo más conveniente", plantea este secretario general autonómico. Por su parte, su homólogo vasco, Eduardo Maura, señaló por su parte que no descarta "ninguna posibilidad" en cuanto a la reedición del pacto, que en Euskadi fue especialmente exitoso en las pasadas elecciones generales, en las que Unidos Podemos se hizo con la victoria tanto en votos como en escaños.
El discurso transversal, en el centro del debate.- Pero, más allá de cuestiones concretas como los comicios vascos, buena parte del debate girará en torno a la necesidad de recuperar el discurso transversal de Podemos –lo que implica marcar distancias con IU– que han planteado los dirigentes más cercanos a Errejón durante estos días, a raíz del cruce de críticas desencadenado por los malos resultados electorales. Frente a dirigentes como Juan Carlos Monedero, que aseguró que a Podemos le había faltado "calle" en la campaña y que se había centrado demasiado en el "marketing", Jorge Moruno, responsable de Discurso del partido y próximo a Errejón, ha asegurado que ese argumento "es una excusa para volver a la izquierda", mientras que Germán Cano, consejero de Cultura, ha pedido "dejar el moralismo militante".
"Yo creo que lo que dijo este miércoles Íñigo [Errejón] ha sido un buen recordatorio de la hipótesis sobre la que nació Podemos", afirma por su parte un dirigente autonómico, que desliza que en la campaña de las elecciones del 26 de junio han llevado a algunos responsables a "soltarse el pelo" y acomodarse en el discurso de la izquierda clásica. "Tenemos que reivindicar que somos nosotros, un partido diferente, y que eso está bien", sostienen estas fuentes.
En la misma línea, Sergio Pascual planteó este miércoles en un artículo publicado en el diario El País las "dificultades para generar en el corto plazo un sujeto político nuevo, superador, y no un mero producto bien de la mezcla imperfecta de los mismos o de la adaptación de una identidad a la otra, máxime entre partidos fuertemente identitarios". "Con un sistema electoral como el español, quizá la opción menos mala, por aquello de que lo mejor es enemigo de lo bueno, era y es aún hoy en el corto plazo que muchos caminemos juntos pero no revueltos, manteniendo claridad en los límites de cada propuesta y abundando en el hecho de que, por ahora, la fórmula escogida responde a una coyuntura de emergencia social que así lo exige y que nos ha hecho renunciar a siglas y máximas para ponernos de acuerdo en lo común, pero que aún está lejos de habernos unificado".
Otro dirigente autonómico coincide con la interpretación de que Podemos ha virado durante la campaña hacia algunos elementos simbólicos de la izquierda clásica de manera "visceral", aunque rechaza que eso tenga que ver con una apuesta consciente del partido por abandonar las tesis transversales. Según esta fuente, Podemos "se ha resituado en parte en el eje izquierda-derecha" que rechaza Errejón, pero no tanto por una decisión propia como por "la propia distribución del Congreso después del 20D", ya que las conversaciones para formar Gobierno que mantuvieron los partidos tras las elecciones hicieron visible la existencia de dos bloques ideológicos diferenciados.
Congreso extraordinario antes de fin de año.- En cualquier caso, el futuro de la alianza de IU con Podemos y la hoja de ruta que debe seguir el partido serán objeto de discusión en una Asamblea Ciudadana estatal extraordinaria que tendrá lugar, según afirman las fuentes consultadas, antes de final de año, aunque aún no hay una fecha fijada. Pese a que, según los estatutos de Podemos, el congreso ordinario tendría que tener lugar en 2017 –tres años después del de Vistalegre–, el núcleo errejonista está convencido de que es necesario "reubicar" el partido y "anclarlo en su propia personalidad".
Lo cierto es que la posibilidad de convocar de una Asamblea Ciudadana extraordinaria lleva flotando en el ambiente desde después de las pasadas elecciones autonómicas y municipales de 2015, cuando Errejón planteó la necesidad de "mutar de maquinaria de guerra electoral a movimiento popular" tras las elecciones generales. Esa idea, que genera consenso, implicaría el cierre de la etapa que se inició en Vistalegre y la descentralización y federalización de un partido que desde su fundación ha mantenido una estructura fuertemente jerárquica.
Pero la nueva hoja de ruta que salga de ese congreso también tendrá que definir el futuro de Podemos en relación a IU, y ahí las posturas están enfrentadas: o fortalecer Podemos, o caminar hacia un Unidos Podemos que aún se plantea como una hipótesis sin definir. Un dirigente autonómico consultado por infoLibre descarta la posibilidad de una inminente fusión entre las dos organizaciones por sus diferencias, especialmente entre su militancia, pero será la Asamblea la que tenga que decidir si Podemos e IU estrechan o relajan sus lazos."

2016.06.29 18:36 RafaBwn ¿Dónde esta el “Bravo Pueblo”? A propósito de la supuesta “pasividad social” venezolana.

Primero, una cita de Gustave Le Bon:
La masa es siempre intelectualmente inferior al hombre aislado. Pero, desde el punto de vista de los sentimientos y de los actos que los sentimientos provocan, puede, según las circunstancias, ser mejor o peor. Todo depende del modo en que sea sugestionada.
Esta premisa sintetiza uno de los principios fundamentales de la sicología de masas, por lo que nos parece útil tomarla en cuenta para buscar respuesta a una pregunta que copa el imaginario colectivo del país: ¿Dónde esta el bravo pueblo? La pertinencia de la duda sobre lo que ha sido capaz de tolerar y aceptar la mayoría de lagente, (por muchísimo menos de lo que hoy pasa fue defenestrado el extinto presidente Carlos Andrés Pérez, quien por ejemplo, aumento la gasolina en 50%, y Maduro en un 6.000%), concita una reflexión política e intelectual honesta, pero también estratégica para el movimiento opositor venezolano. Hoy la cultura democrática del país, pugna (en las mas adversas condiciones de desventaja y ataque de la cúpula que se aferra al poder), por una salida constitucional, electoral y pacifica a través de la convocatoria del referéndum revocatorio.
Tomando en cuenta el enfoque sicosocial de Le Bon, resulta obvio que Chávez nos acostumbró a sentirnos “masa”; condicionando la conducta individual signada por la posesión de derechos que no cejaríamos ante el poder, hoy “difuminados” en las colas, el aceptar comprar lo que el gobierno imponga, y resignarnos ante la escasez de medicinas, entre otras afrentas a nuestra dignidad humana.
¿Cómo hemos llegado a esto?, bueno por asumir una asimilación a la conformación de la muchedumbre, que nos limita a sobrevivir de cualquier forma posible ante las terribles carencia y humillaciones a que nos somete una visión totalitaria del estado, que se ha hecho omnipresente y omnipotente, aunque terriblemente irresponsable e ineficiente. Entonces ese pueblo devenido en “masa”, según Le Bon: “Intelectualmente inferior al hombre aislado”, no puede ser asimilado a la aberración conceptual de Pico de la Mirándola, quien afirmo: “la turba es indigna de llevar el peso de la sabiduría”. No, simplemente el común de nuestra sociedad asumió como “natural”, (siendo un anti-valor); el depender de un Chávez que inteligentemente se vendió cual generoso dispensador de todo tipo de asistencialismo, regalía, dádiva y “protección”, en el símil subconsciente del que idealiza a un padre como sustituto liberador de su responsabilidad por el trabajo, la productividad y autosuficiencia, emprendedora y honesta, a cambio de enajenar su voluntad al designio de su bienamado benefactor; siempre que le “pagara” con su voto.
No obstante Chávez, al poner bajo su egida personalista y autocrática la institucionalidad, el equilibrio del poder y el ejercicio de la ciudadanía activa, plural, diversa y autónoma, sembró; el germen que hoy carcome acelerada e inexorablemente su “legado”. Vale decir, tuvo éxito en convertir en su activo político la voluntad popular de cambio que venia siendo vulnerada por la “enfermedad” inoculada a la sociedad venezolana, por parte de un estatus quo bipartidista, elitesco, y por decir lo menos, apartado de su responsabilidad de gobernar, para, con; y por el pueblo, pero; fracaso en darle sustentabilidad perdurable, al dispendio, la demagogia y a la dádiva rentista como modelo del estado social, y menos de derecho. Ahora bien, era sicosocialmente justificado que una gran mayoría de la gente pensara así. La descomunal y directa transferencia de recursos que fluyeron por las misiones hacia los sectores mas pobres y excluidos, unido al reparto de bienes y servicios a los cuales la gente común había perdido su acceso, no solo crearon la ilusión del “paraíso terrenal Chavista” sino que efectivamente generaron un sostenido crecimiento del PIB, y por ende de la economía, (aunque inútil, como hoy se prueba, para propiciar desarrollo integral, sostenido y medible) consecuencia lógica de haber puesto en manos de una población con muy poca o ninguna capacidad de compra, una disponibilidad financiera que expandió enormemente la demanda de bienes y servicios. A ello hay que agregar la oferta pública de alimentos subsidiados, variados y abundantes, que mantuvieron a raya durante varios años el índice inflacionario; hasta que llegó la desaceleración de la economía globalizada, ( y su impacto en la disminución de la demanda de petróleo), lo que hizo caer la absorción de un recurso energético por economías estancadas, si acaso no en recesión; forzando los precios a la baja, siendo esto, y no la malquerencia del imperio, lo que “mando a parar” la fiesta populista financiada con el “kino petrolero” a precios por encima de los 100 dólares el barril. Ahora; triste y dolorosamente presenciamos y sentimos, la tragedia socioeconómica que se ceba contra los mas pobres, quienes atónitos, incrédulos y sin “ostentosa reacción de rebeldía”, sufren en carne propia, (aparentemente resignados) el final de la orgia populista financiada con los “petrodólares”. En realidad no es tan así. Deliberadamente puntualizamos, “ostentosa reacción de rebeldía”, puesto que al observar la dinámica del hecho social que signa a la Venezuela actual, (apelando a Le Bon), el colectivo “puede según las circunstancias, ser mejor o peor. Todo depende del modo en que sea sugestionado. Esa sugestión en nuestro caso, se alimenta de una matriz de opinión gigantescamente mayoritaria por el cambio, y esta marcando un estadio de sublevación contestataria que el régimen de Maduro no acepta como realidad tangible por su desconexión con el común de la gente, Prefiere aferrarse a la zona de “confort moral” que le proporciona su dogma comunista/totalitario, o simplemente asume el mas craso y ostensible desplante, a elementales principios de solidaridad y acción de auxilio para con los humanos máxime si además son sus compatriotas. La terca, inexcusable y cruel oposición a recibir ayuda humanitaria internacional con alimentos y medicinas, así lo demuestra.
¿Porque no se siente al bravo pueblo como ocurrió en el “caracazo“. Bueno porque el caracazo si fue una “ostentosa reacción de rebeldía”, (cualquiera que hayan sido sus motivaciones, características o consecuencias sufridas), fundamentalmente por tres componentes sustantivos: a): se produjo en la capital de la república, b): fue masivo durante muchas horas producto de la falta adecuada y consensuada respuesta institucional (se apelo a la peor formula, cual fue sacar al ejercito a reprimir) y c): recibió una cobertura mediática (nacional e internacional) amplia en “tiempo real”, por tanto impresionante. Pero eso no quiere decir que se extinguió el espíritu contestarlo de nuestra conciencia democrática; por el contrario esta en la calle, por un lado en la actitud valiente y arriesgada de figuras y personalidades políticas de la MUD y sus partidos, y en cuanto a la gente humilde, incrementado, agresivo y cada vez mas constante; solo que en el contexto del protagonismo anónimo, sectorial y vecinal. Disperso geográficamente si; Pero no por ello menos explosivo y peligroso, para la estabilidad del régimen.
Esta modalidad de rebeldía, viene siendo aupada por un voluntarismo ciertamente desarticulado, precisamente por ser una explosión social que surge como tsunami soterrado, nacido en el silencio de la rabia, de la indignación ante la falta de que se les reconozca como aquellos que llevan la peor parte en este colapso social. Que están reaccionando incluso, con una determinada dosis de violencia ante lo que sienten como burla; cuando se les invoca en todos los medios oficiales, como el pueblo feliz que se mantiene firme con la revolución, y Maduro; lejos de estrechar la empatía emocional mediante la comprensión y consuelo por su padecimiento, y en vez de tomar medidas reales de solución, opta por el desplante que desdeña la enormidad de la tragedia que se padece. La soberbia política y tozudez de Maduro raya en el suicidio; y cuidado, puede herir mortalmente la vigencia del proyecto político chavista, cuando perfectamente pudiera tener un futuro en la escena política venezolana.
De otra parte un segmento (aun importante) del “bravo pueblo Chavista”, se resiste a admitir que se equivocó, (actitud humanamente explicable por cierto), apelando a la expresión de que “con Chávez no pasara esto”; pero respecto de Maduro y su elitesco séquito de co-gobernantes militares, ese mismo chavismo los quiere “fuera ya”; y por eso se suma, (cuidado y con la vehemencia del que se siente traicionado por el heredero con quien se pierde todo lo que “Chávez nos dio”), protagonizando protestas populares y saqueos en casi todo el país. Y en todo caso, los chavistas que se mantienen pasivos, (tal cual advirtió Petkoff) espera en la bajadita a Maduro para castigarlo con el revocatorio. Porque no es la MUD quien enciende la llama social; es el hambre.
Ahora bien, hay que asumir la orientación política de esa convulsión social. No cabe dicotomía para la dirigencia de la MUD y los partidos, entre hacer lo que conviene, por encima de lo correcto. Lo advertimos porque pueblo saqueando comercios y empresas, (que son igual victimas del “holocausto” económico que sufrimos todos), es una distorsión y despropósito a los finen de la lucha por el restablecimiento de nuestra democracia. Esta obligada la MUD en generar estrategia política y comunicacional, para que Nicolás Maduro no se escape o diluya de su responsabilidad, como “el” factor determinante de la crisis.
Debe salirse al paso con el discurso, mensaje y acción; de manera clara y contundente, a la pretensión manipuladora del PSUV y el gobierno de satanizar a los productores, industriales y comerciantes como maléficos autores de la hecatombe económica que nos arruina. La protesta hay que orientarla, porque las crisis económicas, por su solo dinámica, no garantiza la caída de los gobiernos; es la ingobernalidad política que mana de la rebeldía de las sociedades en el ejercicio pleno de su soberanía, quien lo logra.
Vale decir que la solución no es atentar contra abastos, bodegas y panaderías de barriadas que sobreviven a duras penas, sino el producir un cambio profundo en la conducción del estado, su economía en el marco de la restitución constitucional. Por eso es igualmente irresponsable la conseja de “meterle fuego a la llama social”, sin importar la perdida de vidas y destrucción de bienes materiales, solo para que “maduro caiga”.
La historia ha probado que ante el caos y la anarquía, la respuesta es el fascismo y la dictadura. Por eso la MUD no puede apartarse de la línea política de la salida constitucional, electoral y pacifica, aun a despecho de los “radicales de verborrea”. Además todos los estudios revelan que así lo quiere la inmensa mayoría de nuestros compatriotas. Ahora; que la insensata y evidente incompetencia de Maduro, para asimilar y comprender como es; que es, y de que manera se ejerce la política, lleve al país a la sima de la barbarie y la represión, por solo mantenerse con su cúpula en el poder, comportará una aceleración de su salida del poder, no su preservación.
Agregamos para refrescar el análisis un dato histórico por demás interesante: José Vicente Emparan, aceptó la realización y resultados del “revocatorio” del 19 de Abril de 1.810; que ante el unánime “no lo queremos” del pueblo, pronuncio su celebre: “pues yo tampoco quiero mando”. Al contrario del Capitán General Emparan; quien quedo en el episodio mas como “demócrata” que déspota; Maduro “si quiere mando” aunque sea a costa del sufrimiento y la destrucción; que el mismo ha desatado contra el pueblo venezolano.
Finalmente propongo como iniciativa a ser discutida, manejar el concepto “Devuélveme a Venezuela”, no en la acepción rogatoria, sino desde la exigencia imperativa, por ser el revocatorio la vía para que se nos devuelva (hoy secuestrada) la Venezuela de la cual todos disfrutábamos y que perdimos. Es decir, convertir este concepto en una causa pro revocatorio.

2016.05.13 11:15 EDUARDOMOLINA Teresa Rodríguez y Antonio Maíllo ven en el pacto IU-Podemos ‘el gran tsunami’ de la política española. Maíllo ha subrayado que la confluencia de Podemos e IU es una “buena noticia para la mayoría social, para gente que quiere cambio”.

http://www.andalucesdiario.es/politica/rodriguez-y-maillo-ven-en-su-alianza-el-gran-tsunami-de-la-politica-espanola/
"Sonrientes, optimistas y confiados, la secretaria general de Podemos Andalucía, Teresa Rodríguez, y el coordinador general de IULV-CA, Antonio Maíllo, han celebrado el acuerdo alcanzado entre ambas formaciones para concurrir juntas a las elecciones del 26 de junio, pues defienden que la confluencia es una “esperanza” para combatir al PP y sus políticas, “una alternativa de gobierno real”. Además, han aseverado que aspiran a ser la primera fuerza política en esta Comunidad tras la cita con las urnas.
En la que ha sido la primera escenificación de los líderes andaluces de Podemos y de IU tras el acuerdo entre las direcciones de las organizaciones a nivel estatal, Rodríguez y Maíllo han afirmado que este acuerdo es “una buena noticia” alcanzada gracias a la “generosidad y la altura de miras” de ambos, que se unen “en un momento político en el que la ciudadanía tiene esperanzas de cambio, valentía para afrontar que las cosas no tienen que ser un juego de dos, sino que se pueden hacer de otra manera”. Y este, “ese reto histórico”.
NECESIDAD URGENTE DE CAMBIO.- De su lado, la líder andaluza de la formación morada ha manifestado que en Andalucía, más que en ningún sitio, “hay prisa porque cambien las políticas del PP”, de manera que esta confluencia es una esperanza para la comunidad autónoma, donde “tenemos una necesidad de cambio urgente” a cuenta de sus datos de desempleo.
Maíllo ha subrayado que la confluencia de Podemos e IU es una “buena noticia para la mayoría social, para gente que quiere cambio”, cuando ha indicado que es una unión que va a ser “absolutamente irrefrenable” y un “gran tsunami” en el debate político del 26J. A su juicio, esta coalición no será solo alternativa de gobierno, sino que confía en que sea “el sea futuro gobierno del país” porque “es lo que necesita Andalucía”.
Además, el líder de la federación de izquierdas ha ensalzado el “absoluto y contundente” apoyo de la militancia a la confluencia con un “mandato claro” de que esta unión está “para ganar”, para formar ese “gobierno al servicio del pueblo” y “derrotar las políticas del PP que han desmantelado este país”.
Maíllo ha hablado de “suma multiplicadora” que “no se hace para beneficiar a Podemos ni a IU sino para beneficiar al pueblo” con una “alternativa real y creíble” al Gobierno del PP, a la “renuncia del matrimonio PSOE y Ciudadanos” y a la de la presidenta Susana Díaz, “abrazando las tesis más derechistas del socialismo”.
CONTRA LA COBARDÍA.- Maíllo ha proseguido señalando que con esta confluencia ya no se puede considerar que el 26 de junio se celebre la “repetición de elecciones” porque “hay un nuevo sujeto electoral”, fruto del “consenso” y “ejemplo de audacia y generosidad”.
Rodríguez ha coincidido en destacar el “ejercicio de generosidad” de ambas partes y su “altura política” para alcanzar esta confluencia y ha ido más allá señalando que, además de ser una lucha contra las políticas del PP lo es “contra la cobardía política de los que no están a la altura de las circunstancias y no entienden que estamos en una situación de emergencia social”.
