    • Brazilian Minutes #15 - World Cup Opening Ceremony

      5 years ago

      Mesk

      I just learned that President Dilma will not be giving a speech at the opening ceremony of the 2014 World Cup.

      In case you're wondering why, it's because the whole preparation for the World Cup has cost Brazil many, many times what it was initially supposed to cost and the country has been more chaotic than ever. Support for the government is low, with protests happening almost every day over a myriad of reasons (definitely not on the scale of the protests of last June, but still quite meaningful). Many people are protesting the World Cup event. Last year, during the Confederations Cup, President Dilma was booed.

      In order to prevent a similar event on a much more global scale, there will be absolutely no speeches during the Opening Ceremony of the World Cup.
      As a final note, please note that Dilma has stated that she will use the Brazilian Army in order to resist protests, if necessary.

      More information can be found on the links below. I found articles that were in English. Hopefully they can provide a good amount of information.

    • Violence In Media - How Far Is Too Far?

      5 years ago

      Mesk

      The title to this journal was the last thing I wrote because initially I could not find the correct words to describe this journal. I'm not one to voice my opinion about anything and everything, but what happed in the local newspaper has really upset me and made me think about the direction things are going.

      PLEASE NOTE that this journal will contain some very heavy stories and should not be read by people who are unprepared to hear about extreme violence in prisons.

      Since the start of last year, in Pedrinhas Penitentiary in one of the northern Brazilian states, Maranhao, 63 prisoners have been murdered by other inmates. This culminated with the death of three more prisoners a few days ao. They were tortured and then decapitated. The aggressors then proceeded to film their grizzly "trophies' and laugh about their horrific acts. This video was, somehow, leaked to some newspapers.

      I am a person who reads the newspaper every morning before going in to work. I sit down at breakfast and skim over the main news that's going on in the world.
      Yesterday, however, I opened my door, picked up the newspaper and was immediately treated to some of the most graphic images I have ever seen. Sure, they did not show the decapitated heads or the severed necks, but they still showed burns and chests with '“ no exaggeration '“ over 20 stab wounds.

      What a way to have breakfast, eh? Nobody needs to see that kind of thing. The news can be transmitted without having to show images.
      The article ended with a mention that the newspaper sent the video to the Government of Maranhao.
      Today's article was about how the Government of Maranhao was horrified that they received such a video and that the footage was atrocious. This article did not need any image, did it? Yet the newspaper somehow still managed to slip in the photograph of the stabbed prisoner's chest. Was that really necessary?
      To top the whole thing off, going to the website of the newspaper allowed you to watch close to one entire minute out of the two-minute and thirty second gore video.

      Out of curiosity, I searched CNN for the news and found an article about it. The article was very similar to the one seen in our newspaper but (surprise surprise!) there were absolutely no pictures. The message was still conveyed without having to shock the audience with gratuitous gore.

      This was where I finally discovered what I would call my journal post. How far IS too far? I remember the footage of the Hindenburg disaster of 1937. The reporter was nearly brought to tears just for knowing that over 30 people had died. Now we're seeing pictures of children killed in bombings in the Middle East and videos of prison violence are available on prestigious newspapers. For the first time, this made me truly stop to ask myself one question: how desensitized are we getting to violence and violent images?

    • Brazilian Minutes #14 - Brazilian Protests Update

      6 years ago

      Mesk

      Since I already took a long time to write the initial journal about all the protests, I decided to wait a little to write the update.

      The protests continued and included some other major ones, similar to the one where nearly a million brazilians protested country-wide. The result was a significant major change: the bus fare was brought back down to R$3.00. The 20 cents were removed only a day or two after the journal.
      The interesting thing is that, despite that, protests continued. It really is no longer only about 20 cents.

      Fortunately, the protesting has been peaceful with no more reports of police brutality during them. That is a consequence of the collective efforts on both sides. On the one hand, police are now forbidden to use rubber bullets and tear gas. On the other, the protesters are not acting violently, apart from a few vandals who are stopped by the peaceful protesters themselves.

      Interestingly enough, the Movimento Passe Livre (MLP) are no longer satisfied with the protests. They argue that the whole point of the protests was to reduce the bus fare and, now that the price has gone down, people should protest in favor of having free public transport. I have tried my best to avoid stating my opinion in these journals, but I fear this cannot be avoided right now. Please note that the following paragraph is solely opinion and does not state pure fact.

      The MPL was the group that started these protests. If it was not for their initiative, I doubt many people would have gone to the streets to protest. People were united by their common cause of wanting to pay less for their public transportation. However, the MPL belief that the protests have lost their meaning is incredibly selfish and thoughtless. Hundreds of thousands of brazilian protesters are just that: brazilian protesters. They are not all MPL. In fact, MLP is a small group and an NGO for that matter. If they wish to protest only for their initial goal, that is fine. But it is not okay for them to push their agenda on everybody else and speak on behalf of all protesters. People are protesting for way more than just the 20 cents and the other causes are just as valid, if not more so than a slight raise in public transport prices.

      One other major protest was against a potential law called the PEC-37. This proposed law would pretty much eliminate the power of any section of the government to investigate claims of corruption on government officials. In practice, this means that politicians could be corrupt and there would be no way to investigate, know for sure and punish them for their crimes.
      After a huge, peaceful protest, the law was struck down in an almost unanimous vote against it. I'll need to check the numbers, but I believe it was 30+ senators against the law, 2 in favor and 2 refused to vote.

      As a final note, President Dilma's approval has plummeted from 50% to under 30% in just two weeks and she is not the only member of government to suffer from public outrage. The people are upset and the government and demand a change, as these protests show.

      As a final note, I would just like to write one little paragraph about how day-to-day activity has been affected by these protests. The answer is, not a all. In response to the last journal I have received messages cautioning me and wishing me well and; whilst I deeply appreciate the kindness of this community, I would just like to set you guys at ease.
      The media tends to show the most shocking images. Images of burning tire barricades, policemen striking people and vandals, well, vandalizing. They show only these pictures and paint a portrait of a situation much worse than it really is. One example is a headline I was that said something along the lines of "Brazilian protests turn deadly" because of the only death related to these protests. The victim was killed by a crowd that trampled him. Of course any death is tragic, but I have heard of music concerts with more deaths and those did not involve hundreds of thousands of people protesting in over a dozen capital cities simultaneously. The day after one of the protests I drove down Paulista Avenue and have to point out: if it wasn't for the newspaper mentioning that there was no way of knowing a protest had happened the day before.
      Thank you all for your wishes for my safety, just know that life goes on as normal and these protests are not affecting people in their day-to-day life.

    • Brazilian Minutes #13 - Brazilian Protests

      6 years ago

      It may be that you have heard of what has been happening here in Brazil for the past couple of weeks. If so, maybe this journal will give you further information. If not, I hope to give you a fairly detailed and impartial eyes-on account of what has been going on.

      Despite Brazil becoming a stronger economic power every day, it has been suffering a series of problems; corrupt politicians, a huge gap between the extremely rich and the extremely poor, a severely lacking infrastructure, unacceptable traffic jams and - the spark that lit this gunpowder keg - increasing fares for public transportation.

      For the last two years, the bus / train / subway fare was R$3.00 (US$1.50). However, due to unnecessary inflation, the price went up R$0.20 (US$0.10) in late May and early June. Granted, this is not a HUGE increase in the cost of using public transport (especially because the fare rose LESS than it should have with the inflation we had), but it was enough to cause a stir. On June 6th, the "Movimento Passe Livre" (hereby referred to as the MPL for brevity) organized a protest on the Paulista Avenue here in Sao Paulo to get the bus fare reduced once more.

      According to the police, 2000 people went to the streets. According to the MPL, 6000 people went. Either way, this protest was marked because of the amount of vandalism that occurred. Bank windows were shattered, busses were sprayed with paint and some people got hurt. The official number is that 2 policemen and 8 protesters got injured. 15 protesters were arrested for public vandalism (of which 9 were released within a few hours).

      June 7th marked the second protest day. This time, 5000 people went to the streets to protest. However, this second protest came to blows a lot faster: the repairs for all the public damage is estimated at over US$50,000, where subway stations were vandalized, two busses were torched with molotov cocktails and barricades of flaming tires were set up on Paulista Avenue. This protest was met with a moderate amount of police brutality where riot shield policemen were dispatched to stop the vandalism. It was here, and on the third protest, where the fight was no longer about the price of the public transport fares.

      The third protest was on June 11th, the week after the first two protests. 5000 people attended according to the MPL and 2000 according to the police. During this protest, the people tried a peaceful approach and greeted the police with chants of "sem violencia" ("no violence"). The difference was that, this time, the police arrived with riot shields, shooting rubber bullets and tear gas into the crowd without much reason. The third protest caused a large ripple on the internet, when photos and videos spread all over youtube and facebook; videos showing police spraying pepper spray at people who presented no threat (tv cameraman, specifically), a policeman shattering the window of his own police car to justify his acts of police brutality and a newspaper reporter having been shot in the eye by a rubber bullet.
      There were even reports of police shooting a tear fas canister into the 7th floor of an apartment building on Paulista Avenue and police dragging a protester out of a hospital to beat him on the street; this protester was taking care of a wounded friend.

      Two days later, the fourth protest happened. 5000 people attended according to the police. 20000 according to the MPL. People were no longer upset solely about the prices of public transport. They were furious about police brutality, higher bus fare, politicians who let all this happen, the World Cup of next year getting an insane investment with many projects still incomplete, amongst other things. The fourth protest was also marked with violence: 105 injured protesters, 18 injured policemen and 15 injured protesters. By this point, police were confiscating vinegar and the simple possession of it was enough to be seen as suspicious, due to the belief that vinagre helps fight off the effects of tear gas. The continuing police brutality and lack of resolution let to the planning of the largest protest yet: the fifth protest that happened yesterday.

      After these events, Brazilians all over were outraged. Promises of protests in other cities were made and support for the protest was shown abroad in New York, Dublin and Berlin, for example. On facebook, a whopping 270,000 people confirmed their participation at the fifth protest. Naturally, nowhere near that many people would actually go, but it still happened.

      Protests happened in 12 capital cities all over Brazil, including Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Curitiba, Belo Horizonte and Salvador. All over Brazil, more than 200,000 people went; over 65,000 in Sao Paulo alone. SP's protest was peaceful enough, no tear gas or police brutality. Rio and Belo Horizonte suffered that, though. In Brasilia, protesters climbed to the roof of the national congress. The official numbers for the largest protests, according to the press, are as follows: 10,000 in Salvador, 15,000 in Belo Horizonte, 100,000 in Rio de Janeiro, 65,000 in Sao Paulo, 5000 in Brasi­lia and 10,000 in Curitiba.
      More details are still coming out and I'll update this journal as more information comes out, but it is already hard to believe: people are getting up to show their anger. There have not been protests of this magnitude in Brazil since people demanded Ex-president Collor's impeachment in 1992.

      There could be no better time for such protests. President Dilma heard people booing her as she opened the confederates cup, the pre-world cup tournament. Maybe as all eyes turn on Brazil for the World Cup and Olympics, the struggle of the people will be heard and our government will be under enormous pressure to change for the better.

    • Brazilian Minutes #12 - Crime & Punishment

      6 years ago

      Mesk

      Tuesday night was a tragic night for a family here in São Paulo. 19 year old Victor Hugo Deppman was arriving at his home that night when he was stopped at gunpoint by a 17 year old. The 17 year old demanded Deppman's cell phone which was given without any trouble. Despite this, Deppman was killed in cold blood.

      Security camera footage form the front of the building confirms that Deppman acted calmly and did not try to fight back at all. The shooters' family recognized him from the security footage and it was his mother that took him to the police station where he confessed his crime.

      The shooter turned 18 two days later, on Thursday.

      This, in turn has sparked debate about the current age in which people can be held accountable for their actions or not. Currently, felonies committed by minors lead to their being held in the "Fundação Casa" rehabilitation for minors. People held there are released after a maximum of three years. In other words, they are held until they turn 21 if their crime was committed at 17. After this, they are released with no conditions, going as far as not having ANYTHING stated on their criminal records.

      Deppman's friends and some local politicians are trying to get this changed. Governor of São Paulo Geraldo Alckmin is suggesting we keep the adult age at 18 years of age for criminal offenses, but that offenders are transported to adult penitentiaries once they reach 18. They would serve the rest of their time in those penitentiaries.

      This is not the first time that a minor, nearly turning 18, has committed or confessed to a crime of this type in order to use the loophole of the Brazilian penal system.
      My thoughts go out to Deppman and his family and I hope that they get the justice that they deserve. When it comes to my country and the penal system we have, though, sometimes hope is all we can count upon.

      You are pretty much correct, but I'll break it down for ya.

      You can have up to 12 webcams going in tinychat, and I believe the people in the chat room is unlimited (most I've seen is 150).
      Everyone can see and hear the people on webcam, and everyone can read the chat.
      I don't know how, but it always seems to work out fine, even when we have 12 cams going. Usually there are people who dominate the conversation a bit, but it's never too bad. People take their turn talking. If not, I just yell over everyone.

      It's a really great time, you should definitely stop by some time. I plan on having one later this week!

      Sten actually has a decent background and his race (the Qunari) plays an important role DA2. He's mostly just a tank, but so are Alistair and Leliana. I think Sten is more of a "history/culture" type of character.

      Hello, Oro.
      For a variety of reasons, I believe that I will not be able to take part in any of the Season 9 Shizno episodes, despite the will to do so.
      These include the fact that I have a busted mic and next to no time to get a new one.
      Also, I'm doing a pre-university course until the 5th of June and the season will probably not last that long. After that date, though, I shall have plenty of time to get a new mic and (if the season is still going on) take part.
      Despite wanting to take part, my classes start at 7am every day of the week, forcing me to wake up at 5:40am. Since the Shizno records at 11pm, my time, and usually ends at 2am, I find it extremely unlikely that taking part if a viable and wise decision. I'm sorry.
      The next season, whenever it will be, will only happen after I'm at university as I will certainly be in by the second half of the year. After that, finding time for the Shizno should be a no-brainer.

      Regards,
      Mesk



      I is sad.

      Haha, well I find it awesome because it caters to what I want in a game. I like story, I like character and I like to be in a world that I can believe is real. Believe it or not, I do believe that Dragon Age 2 has a much better plot and the character development has improved drastically.

      Dragon Age Origins is a real gem to me, and I hope you are able to enjoy as much as I have. :) Let me know how that works out for you.

      Don't give me too much credit, though. You're a really cool dude which is why it was easy for you to jump in.

      Hey Griffon!
      A while back (at least a few months) you posted a journal with "I Would Hurt a Fly" by Built To Spill.
      I'd just like to thank you for doing so: you've introduced me to a fanstastic band and fantastic music!

      Thanks very much!
      Mesk


      Don't thank me. Nathan introduced me to them recently and apparently you and I are both super late to the game.

      Haha yes you're right, you probably should have noticed that. Even so, Fallout 3 remains my most played single player game as well :P

      I disagree about the Meta, and the only reason Simmons is in there is because there was no one better from Project Freelancer. Which this was based off of. And seriously, when someone suggests calling command to find out how to infiltrate said command....

      And the Meta isnt really Evil. He just... I think hes just trying to put something back together and not caring what happens to anyone else. I never really saw him as evil. Definitely not good- but not exactly evil either.

      Já coloquei Watch em você também, sim nasci em SC e ainda moro aqui, estou fazendo faculdade na UFSC (Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina) nasci em Itajaí mas moro em Joinville no momento para terminar a faculdade, faço Engenharia da Computação e Engenharia de Software, fui para o Rio uma vez bem legal aí, fui faz um tempo tinha 17 anos, agora estou vendo uma oportunidade de emprego nos Estados Unidos ou talvez na Microsoft Brasil já que estou quase terminando minhas faculdades, mas cara realmente foi dificíl achar outro brasileiro aqui no site.

      Opa, o prazer é meu, também achei que não existia outro brasileiro aqui no site até ver seu Journal.
