          SIMPLES NACIONAL - LUCRO PRESUMIDO - LUCRO REAL - CONTRIBUIÇÃO SOCIAL SOBRE LUCRO    


Simples Nacional, Lucro Presumido e Lucro Real são formas de tributação do Imposto de Renda da Pessoa Jurídica, cuja opção deve ser exercida no inicio de cada ano, ou no início das atividades da empresa. 

A Contribuição Social Sobre o Lucro Líquido – CSLL foi instituída para o financiamento da seguridade social.

A opção certa resulta em benefícios e menor tributação.

Para se saber qual a forma mais benéfica deve ser elaborado o orçamento da empresa que permita obter informações para simulações do Imposto de Renda, observando a legislação tributária. 

Recomendamos cautela na observação dos tetos de receita bruta, mês a mês, durante o ano fiscal, com alteração obrigatória da forma de tributação, no caso de tributação pelo SIMPLES ou Lucro Presumido, conforme pode ser observado a seguir:




Neste post vamos apresentar as três formas de tributação, com base nas informações transcritas do site da Receita Federal, cujo objetivo é permitir que o estudante e o empresário possam ter uma visão sobre a tributação do Imposto de Renda da Pessoa Jurídica, evitando, que, por desconhecimento, tomem decisões que se transformem em grandes problemas.

SIMPLES NACIONAL

O SIMPLES NACIONAL é um regime de tratamento tributário diferenciado favorecido, que, regra geral, tem como base de tributação a receita bruta, com pagamentos mensais de impostos de forma simplificada, em um único DARF, observando alíquotas por faixa de faturamento, conforme estabelece a Lei Complementar nº 123 de 14.12.2006 e seus anexos.

No SIMPLES as alíquotas são progressivas, proporcionais à receita bruta.

O Simples é forma de tributação das ME - Microempresas, EPP- Empresas de Pequeno Porte inscritas no Simples Nacional, com simplificação de apuração e pagamento mensal de impostos, com base na receita bruta e tabelas de alíquotas progressivas de acordo com a atividade desenvolvida e a receita bruta, bem como outras vantagens, das quais destacamos as seguintes:

Para melhor entendimento, sugerimos a leitura do post "MICRO EMPRESA - ME E EMPRESA DE PEQUENO PORTE - EPP", neste blog, que apresenta, inclusive, uma tabela para atividade comercial. 


TRIBUTAÇÃO COM BASE NO LUCRO PRESUMIDO

O imposto de renda com base no lucro presumido é determinado por períodos de apuração trimestrais, encerrados em 31 de março, 30 de junho, 30 de setembro e 31 de dezembro de cada ano-calendário (Lei n º 9.430, de 1996, arts. 1 º e 25; RIR/1999, art. 516, § 5 º )

Do site da Receita Federal transcrevemos: 

Via de regra, a opção é manifestada com o pagamento da primeira quota ou quota única do imposto devido correspondente ao primeiro período de apuração, sendo considerada definitiva para todo o ano-calendário (RIR/1999, art. 516, §§ 1 e 4 ).

As pessoas jurídicas que tenham iniciado suas atividades ou que resultarem de incorporação, fusão ou cisão, ocorrida a partir do segundo trimestre do ano-calendário, poderão manifestar a sua opção por meio do pagamento da primeira ou única quota relativa ao trimestre de apuração correspondente ao início de atividade (RIR/1999, art. 517).

Podem optar as pessoas jurídicas:

a) cuja receita bruta total tenha sido igual ou inferior a R$48.000.000,00 (quarenta e oito milhões de reais), no ano-calendário anterior, ou a R$4.000.000,00 (quatro milhões de reais) multiplicado pelo número de meses em atividade no ano-calendário anterior (Lei n º 10.637, de 2002, art. 46); e

              b) que não estejam obrigadas à tributação pelo lucro real em função da atividade exercida ou da sua constituição societária ou natureza jurídica.

NOTAS:

Considera-se receita bruta total a receita bruta de vendas somada aos ganhos de capital e às demais receitas e resultados positivos decorrentes de receitas não compreendidas na atividade.
Durante o período em que estiverem submetidas ao Programa de Recuperação Fiscal (Refis), as pessoas jurídicas obrigadas ao lucro real, exceto Instituições Financeiras (inclusive as equiparadas e as factoring ), poderão optar pelo lucro presumido (Lei n o 9.718, de 1998, art. 14, inciso II; e Lei n o 9.964, de 2000, art. 4 o ).
A partir de 01/01/2001, as sociedades em conta de participação (SCP) ficaram autorizadas a optar pelo lucro presumido, exceto aquelas com atividades imobiliárias, enquanto mantiverem registro de custo orçado (IN SRF nº 31, de 2001).

A opção pelo lucro presumido deverá ter sido informada na DCTF.
Para efeito da verificação do limite, considera-se como receita bruta total o produto da venda de bens nas operações de conta própria, o preço dos serviços prestados e o resultado auferido nas operações de conta alheia, acrescidos das demais receitas, tais como, rendimentos de aplicações financeiras (renda fixa e variável), receita de locação de imóveis, descontos ativos, variações monetárias ativas, juros recebidos como remuneração do capital próprio etc. e dos ganhos de capital (RIR/1999, arts. 518, 519 e 521).

                 Na receita bruta se inclui o ICMS e deverão ser excluídas as vendas canceladas, os descontos incondicionais concedidos e os impostos não cumulativos cobrados destacadamente do comprador, dos quais o vendedor ou prestador é mero depositário (exemplo: IPI) (RIR/1999, art. 224, parágrafo único, e o art. 519).

               Tendo em vista que o limite para opção pelo lucro presumido verificado em relação à receita bruta total do ano-calendário anterior. Quando a pessoa jurídica ultrapassar o limite legal em algum período de apuração dentro do próprio ano-calendário, tal fato não implica necessariamente mudança do regime de tributação, podendo continuar sendo tributada com base no lucro presumido dentro deste mesmo ano. Contudo, automaticamente, estará obrigada à apuração do lucro real no ano-calendário subsequente, independentemente do valor da receita bruta que for auferida naquele ano. Daí por diante, para que a pessoa jurídica possa retornar à opção pelo lucro presumido deverá observar as regras gerais aplicáveis à espécie.

             As pessoas jurídicas que, por determinação legal (Lei n º 9.718, de 1998, art. 14; e RIR/1999, art. 246), estão obrigadas à apuração do lucro real, são:

            a) Pessoas jurídicas cujas atividades sejam de bancos comerciais, bancos de investimentos, bancos de desenvolvimento, caixas econômicas, sociedades de crédito, financiamento e investimento, sociedades de crédito imobiliário, sociedades corretoras de títulos e valores mobiliários, empresas de arrendamento mercantil, cooperativas de crédito, empresas de seguro privado e de capitalização e entidades de previdência privada aberta;
b) Pessoas jurídicas que tiverem lucros, rendimentos ou ganhos de capital oriundos do exterior;
c) Pessoas jurídicas que, autorizadas pela legislação tributária, queiram usufruir de benefícios fiscais relativos à isenção ou redução do imposto de renda;
d)  Pessoas jurídicas que, no decorrer do ano-calendário, tenham efetuado o recolhimento mensal com base em estimativa; 
e) pessoas jurídicas que explorem as atividades de prestação cumulativa e contínua de serviços de assessoria creditícia, mercadológica, gestão de crédito, seleção e riscos, administração de contas a pagar e a receber, compras de direitos creditórios resultantes de vendas mercantis a prazo ou de prestação de serviços ( factoring ).
Observação: o recolhimento mensal com base em estimativa é pagamento mensal da tributação pelo Lucro Real, não se confundido com a tributação pelo lucro Presumido.

NOTAS:
1) A obrigatoriedade a que se refere o item "b" acima não se aplica à pessoa jurídica que auferir receita de exportação de mercadorias e da prestação direta de serviços no exterior. Não se considera direta a prestação de serviços realizada no exterior por intermédio de filiais, sucursais, agências, representações, coligadas, controladas e outras unidades descentralizadas da pessoa jurídica que lhes sejam assemelhadas (ADI SRF n º 5, de 2001).
2) A pessoa jurídica que houver pago o imposto com base no lucro presumido e que, em relação ao mesmo ano-calendário, incorrer em situação de obrigatoriedade de apuração pelo lucro real por ter auferido lucros, rendimentos ou ganhos de capital oriundos do exterior, deverá apurar o IRPJ e a CSLL sob o regime de apuração pelo lucro real trimestral a partir, inclusive, do trimestre da ocorrência do fato (ADI SRF n º 5, de 2001).
3)Os percentuais a serem aplicados na apuração do lucro presumido, conforme  site da Receita Federal, são:



ALÍQUOTA DO IMPOSTO DE RENDA

As pessoas jurídicas e as pessoas físicas a elas equiparadas, domiciliadas no País, devem apurar o IRPJ com base no lucro, que pode ser real, presumido ou arbitrado. A alíquota do IRPJ é de 15% (quinze por cento) sobre o lucro apurado, com adicional de 10% sobre a parcela do lucro que exceder R$ 20.000,00 / mês.

Adicional:
A parcela do lucro real que exceder ao resultado da multiplicação de R$20.000,00 (vinte mil reais) pelo número dos meses do respectivo período de apuração sujeita-se à incidência do adicional, à alíquota de 10% (dez por cento). Também se encontra sujeita ao adicional a parcela da base de cálculo estimada mensal, no caso das pessoas jurídicas que optaram pela apuração do imposto de renda sobre o lucro real anual, presumido ou arbitrado, que exceder a R$ 20.000,00 (vinte mil reais).
Em relação às pessoas jurídicas que optarem pela apuração do lucro presumido ou arbitrado, o adicional incide sobre a parcela que exceder o valor resultante da multiplicação de R$ 20.000,00 (vinte mil reais) pelo número de meses do respectivo período de apuração.
A alíquota do adicional é única para todas as pessoas jurídicas, inclusive instituições financeiras, sociedades seguradoras e assemelhadas.
O adicional incide, inclusive, sobre os resultados tributáveis de pessoa jurídica que explore atividade rural (Lei nº 9.249, de 1995, art. 3º, § 3º). No caso de atividades mistas, a base de cálculo do adicional será a soma do lucro real apurado nas atividades em geral com o lucro real apurado na atividade rural.
 LUCRO REAL

RECOLHIMENTO POR ESTIMATIVA 

A pessoa jurídica sujeita à tributação com base no Lucro Real  ANUAL poderá optar pelo pagamento do imposto e adicional, em cada mês, determinados sobre base de cálculo estimada (Lei 9.430/1996, artigo 2o).
 A opção por esse tipo de recolhimento deve ser manifestada com o pagamento do imposto de renda correspondente ao mês de janeiro ou de início de atividade e será considerada irretratável para todo o ano-calendário (RIR/1999, art. 222).
A base de cálculo estimada  pode ser determinada das seguintes formas (facultado ao contribuinte a qual for mais vantajosa):
a) Com base na Receita Bruta auferida mensalmente: sobre a receita bruta mensal aplica-se percentuais constantes no artigo 15, § lº, da Lei 9.249/1995, acrescidos das demais receitas (ganho de capital, juros, variação monetária ativa, etc.).
b) Com base em balancetes mensais de suspensão ou redução:
b1) SUSPENSÃO - através do balancete mensal acumulado, demonstra-se que o imposto pago até a data do balancete é maior que o devido. Exemplo: em 30 de abril, pelo balancete acumulado de janeiro a abril do respectivo ano, apurou-se um imposto devido de R$ 10.000,00 e até essa data já foi recolhido R$ 12.000,00 - portanto, inexiste a obrigação de recolhimento do IRPJ. Essa opção, também, pode ser utilizada  nos meses em que houver prejuízo fiscal.
b2) REDUÇÃO - através do balancete mensal acumulado demonstra-se que o imposto devido, com base no lucro real, é inferior ao apurado com base na receita bruta mensal da empresa, conforme citado no item "a", podendo haver a redução do recolhimento mensal.
Os percentuais a serem aplicados sobre a receita bruta, para fins de determinação da base de cálculo estimada são: (RIR/1999,art.223)
  

NOTAS IMPORTANTES - TABELA DA BASE DE CÁLCULO DO IRPJ

Nota 1:  Se a receita bruta ultrapassar R$ 120.000/ano, ficará sujeita ao percentual de 32%, retroativamente ao mês de janeiro. Neste caso, deve-se efetuar o recolhimento das diferenças do IRPJ apurado, até o último dia útil do mês subsequente àquele que ocorrer o excesso, sem nenhum acréscimo.
Nota 2: As pessoas jurídicas exclusivamente prestadoras de

FORTY YEARS OF FIDELITY TO CATHOLIC TRADITION

 40th Anniversary of the Priesthood of Monsignor Jean-Michel Faure

Sent by Monsignor Lefebvre as an apostle to our American lands, he was first Superior of the District of South America (FSSPX), Director of the Seminary of the Reja (FSSPX), District Superior of Mexico (FSSPX), and as Mgr. " Archbishop Lefebvre's right-hand arm in Latin America for decades, the Father enjoyed unlimited confidence on the part of the Archbishop (he was the only one who had access to his private correspondence) and in fact, it is said that Monsignor Lefebvre wanted to consecrate him Bishop, but The Father refused in humility. Thanks to this great friendship and trust, Father Faure had the grace to know and understand as few as our Founder . " By this fidelity to the good fight without compromises with the enemies of the catholic faith, was persecuted by the liberals that they copied the Brotherhood and they betrayed to the Founder.
 

But God had reserved for him the cross and the burden that honors him, the bishopric, when consecrated by Bishop Williamson.

Founder of the Priestly Society of the Apostles of Jesus and Mary (SAJM), he is also the director of the Saint Louis Grignion de Montfort International Seminary in Avrillé, France, following the path laid out by his teacher, Mons. Marcel Lefebvre.

God reward your efforts for the Catholic Faith, thank you Monsignor!

          Apple tree disease identification help   

 Two of our 4 year apple trees have developed worrying signs of disease.

Kidds orange - this tree had a branch which looked cankerous last year, and this was removed. The tree split this summer with the weight of apples and now an area of  the bark just above the split seems blistered and discoloured.

The other tree is Epicure, and has developed a series of vertical splits in the bark near the ground. 

 

Both trees look otherwise healthy and bore a lot of apples this year.

Any help appreciated

Ian

 We have 3 pear trees planted 2010 as 3 yr old trees. This year all three have black spots and lesions concentrated along the central rib of the leaves. Virtually all the leaves are affected. The worst affected tree also has black areas on the new growth shoots, which look like they are all dying. There are small cracked and peeling areas on the bark of all the trees, nothing oozing from them. We have searched the RHS book on Pests and Diseases but are at a loss to identify.

Need prayers from my friends.

For my mother, Betty Jonhson is not expected to make it. I have been taking care of my mom for the past four years. I took my mom out of a nursing home, you know how they treat the elderly, I took care of her. I turned my living room into a room for her, so it would accomodiate a hospital bed and other equip. She was happy to be with me and around her grandchildren. I was happy that I was able to put a smile on my mother's face. Now I face losing her.

Thanks f... [ More ]

Jeremy Hunt and Justine Greening tell PM it is time to ease austerity as poll shows party leader’s popularity plummeting

Theresa May is facing a chorus of Tory demands for a radical overhaul of state funding for public services as cabinet ministers and senior Conservative MPs back higher pay for millions of NHS workers, more cash for schools and a “national debate” on student debt.

The prime minister’s waning authority was highlighted as her health secretary, Jeremy Hunt, and education secretary Justine Greening lobbied for an easing of austerity and senior Conservative MPs insisted public services would be in growing peril without an urgent loosening of the purse strings.

          Planes en #Alicante: Defiende el derecho al agua potable en Isabel Bedia   


Mañana, 22 de abril, es el día internacional de la Tierra, y en Isabel Bedia han querido contribuir este año con la campaña Aveda Earth Month 2015. Durante todo el mes de abril, el salón ha presentado una serie de acciones promovidas para ayudar a proteger el agua en las zonas más desfavorecidas del planeta. 

"Queremos que esté presente la pintura, la fotografía, la escultura, la moda, la música... y que a través de estas disciplinas se muestren y comunique la importancia de cuidar el mundo en que vivimos, y en esta ocasión la importancia del agua, como derecho humano fundamental". Comenta Carla Bedia, responsable de comunicación de Isabel Bedia.

Los colaboradores en esta edición son Yelo Trío (Música), Roberto Ruiz de Zafra (Fotografía), Juan Carlos Rayas (Escultura), Carmen Sevila (Moda) y Paula Alenda (Ilustración). Además de ser alicantinos, se ha buscado que cada uno de ellos transmita a través de su trabajo la importancia de cuidar el mundo en el que vivimos, y parte del precio de las obras expuestas en el salón está destinada a la campaña.








¿Cómo podemos colaborar los demás?

  • Las obras expuestas están a la venta y parte del precio está destinado para la campaña
  • Postales con las reproducciones de algunas de las obras
  • Vela Aveda Earth Month 2015
  • CD "Thirty minutes for the water" en colaboración con el grupo YELO
  • Por cada color Aveda aplicado durante el mes de abril, 2 € irán destinados a la campaña


Además, todas las personas que contribuyan con la campaña participarán el 22 de abril en el sorteo de:

  • 3 Packs de Productos Spa Aveda: "Renewal Renoveau" y "Give Spa Nights"
  • 3 Servicios de Beauty on Demand
  • 3 Servicios de brillo para el cabello
  • 3 Servicios de hidratación Botanical Therapy para el cabello
  • 1 Lote completo de la línea Color Conserve y Damage Remedy



Desde hace más de 15 años, la red de Aveda ha recaudado más de 34 millones de dólares en ayuda destinada a organizaciones de apoyo que ejercen una influencia directa en el cambio medioambiental. La campaña del Mes de la Tierra 2015 de Aveda invita a más de 30 países a apoyar la preservación del agua potable, un derecho humano básico por el que cerca de 900 millones de personas en todo el mundo luchan diariamente.  









          La sencillez del Black&White   


Somos muchas las que nos declaramos fan incondicional del binomio más recurrente a la hora de vestir, el blanco y negro o black & white (así parece que queda más cool). Eternamente elegante, clásico y sofisticado, es ideal para cualquier momento del día. Con el recién llegado frío el momento medias negras tupidas se está extendiendo; y combinadas con falda del mismo tono estilizan la figura. Los mocasines acharolados y pequeños complementos en dorado también me parecen una opción muy acertada :). ¿Qué os parece bonitas?







¡Feliz domingo! ♥

¡Millones de gracias por tomaros el tiempo de visitar mi página y compartir conmigo vuestras experiencias y opiniones! Dejadme el enlace de vuestro blog y os seguiré encantada :)

          150 Things to Know on Canada’s 150th Birthday   
On the occasion of Canada’s 150th birthday here are 150 things to know...

1. Today, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is one of the world’s most popular political leaders.
2. Justin Trudeau emerged out of the shadows and into the political spotlight when delivering the eulogy at his father’s funeral, the late Pierre Elliot Trudeau in September 2000.
3. The four pallbearers at the funeral were Justin Trudeau, the Aga Khan, former President Jimmy Carter and…the late Cuban autocrat Fidel Castro.
4. Justin Trudeau’s brother, Alexandre Trudeau, is a fearless filmmaker, who was Embedded in Baghdad before, during and after the U.S. invasion in 2003.
5. While Justin is a social media star, his father was the true showman, who once famously pirouetted behind Queen Elizabeth’s back.
6. In fact, this was just one of many colorful moments. To this day in Canada to give the ‘Pierre Trudeau salute’ means something, very interesting…
7. And who can forget the moment featuring the Rolling Stones, the paparazzi and the Prime Minister.
8. However, the elder Trudeau also did some amazing things for Canada. For starters, until 1982 when he brought it back to Canada, the constitution was effectively governed by the Queen of England.
9. That same year he pushed through the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms.
10. This protection of Canadian rights and diversity did not emerge overnight. Back in 1971, the elder Trudeau declared the new Canadian multiculturalism policy.
11. Four years earlier, in 1967, Pierre Trudeau uttered these famous words: “There's no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation,” when he decriminalized homosexuality in sweeping changes to the criminal code.
12. It took Canada until 2005 to legalize same-sex marriage, being the first nation outside of Europe and fourth in the world to do so.
13. However, while things were eventful under Pierre Trudeau they were also turbulent. He suspended civil liberties during the ‘October Crisis’ in 1970, when he invoked the ‘War Measures Act’ after a provincial cabinet minister was kidnapped by separatist militants.
14. He also enacted the National Energy Program in the 1980s which effectively federalized revenues from energy resources in Alberta, creating long-term hostility towards the federal Liberal Party in the years to come in Western Canada.
15. Trudeau was also an antagonist to separatist ambitions in Quebec, delivering two fiery speeches, one in 1980, and another in 1995 to thwart referendums for independence.
16. All in all, the elder Trudeau served for 15 years but he wasn’t the longest serving Prime Minister. That would be William Lyon Mackenzie King, who served for 21 years.
17. In second place was the founding Prime Minister, John A. Macdonald, who served for 18 years – and who also had a bit of a drinking problem.
18. When Canada was founded in 1867, there were only four provinces: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
19. In fact it was not until 1949 that the last province, Newfoundland joined Canada, and that was only after a barely won referendum.
20. Canada also has three Territories: the Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavat, the latter being formed in 1999.
21. The country is extremely ‘big’, the second largest in the world with over 2 million lakes, among other things.
22. But, 75% of Canadians actually live within 100 miles of the U.S.-Canada border.
23. This may be one of the reasons why the U.S.-Canada economic relationship is the largest in the world, estimated to total US$630 billion in 2016 alone.
24. Close to 30,000 trucks cross the border every single day between the two countries.
25. While things are rosy today, it wasn’t always so. During the War of 1812, the Canadas, as the British colonies were known then, went to battle with the U.S., ultimately burning down the White House on August 24, 1814.
26. War was quite frequent back then due to competing French, British, and American ambitions. After fierce fighting, the 1763 Treaty of Paris essentially gave the British control over much of French Canadian land.
27. In addition, one cannot forget that much of Canadian land belonged to the First Nations, who have been marginalized, ostracizied, occupied and colonized throughout much of Canadian history.
28. During Canada’s first years, a group of people called the Metis who were ethnically mixed between First nations and European descent, rose up in rebellion, ultimately establishing a short-lived provisional government in 1870.
29. The leader of that rebellion Louis Riel was ultimately ranked as the 11th Greatest Canadian.
30. That battle was only one of many for the acknowledgement of the rights of First Nations. One of the worst stains on Canadian history was the residential school system that at one point put a third of all First Nations children under the care of the state.
31. Thousands of students died, and many more were subject to emotional, physical, and sexual abuse.
32. While today, people acknowledge some of these aspects of history, the fight is not over. One of the scandals that was a campaign issue for Justin Trudeau, was the plight of up to 4,000 missing or murdered aboriginal women.
33. Canada’s history has not always been one of inclusivity. The Chinese Exclusion or Immigration Act of 1923 effectively banned immigrants of Chinese origin.
34. This was a culmination of violence and protests against immigrants from East and South Asia, including riots in 1907 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
35. Today, whites are expected to become a minority in Vancouver by 2031 (although I suspect this has already happened).
36. 20.6% of Canadians are foreign-born today and 19.1% identify themselves as visible minorities. 3% of the population identifies as Muslim.
37. There are more Sikhs in the Canadian Cabinet than there are in India’s government (4 versus 2).
38. It was not until the 1940s, however, that Sikhs truly received voting rights.
39. Canadian women achieved the right to vote around the same time as women in the U.S. in the late 1910s.
40. Canada also became home to a number of Black Canadians due to the Underground Railroad, although racism has reared its ugly head in Canada as well.
41. While ethnic and racial struggles have been real, so have class struggles. A lot of this culminated in gained labor rights and ultimately universal healthcare.
42. The ‘grandfather’ of universal healthcare was actually New Democratic Party leader Tommy Douglas, who was named the Greatest Canadian in that (in-)famous poll.
43. Tommy Douglas is also the grandfather of prominent Canadian actor Kiefer Sutherland.
44. Kiefer Sutherland’s father is Donald Sutherland, who married Tommy Douglas daughter, prominent public figure, Shirley Douglas.
45. While living in the U.S. Donald Sutherland retained only Canadian citizenship but lost the right to vote due to the Conservative Party’s new laws in 2015.
46. This also led to a rallying cry by then candidate Justin Trudeau, that “A Canadian is a Canadian is a Canadian.”
47. There are almost 3 million Canadians living abroad but many retain a vibrant Canadian identity.
48. For example, the Terry Fox Run, a hallmark of Canada, has been held in over 60 countries by countless millions over the years.
49. Through these runs over $650 million has been raised for cancer research.
50. And it is all inspired by Terry Fox, who ran the Marathon of Hope in 1980 after losing one leg to cancer.
51. He ended his run after reaching 5,373 kilometres over 143 days.
52. Inspired by Terry’s courage, a fellow West Coaster, Rick Hansen embarked on a Man in Motion World Tour for two years in 1985.
53. He criss-crossed 34 countries raising $26 million along the way.
54. It also inspired the song St. Elmo’s Fire, which reached #1 on the Billboard Charts.
55. The best-selling Canadian artist of all time remains Celine Dion, who has sold over 200 million albums worldwide.
56. It appears though that fellow Canadian Justin Bieber may soon beat her on the charts.
57. There are a lot of Canadian singers, that are quite prominent, but they often live abroad, like Bryan Adams.
58. In fact, Bryan Adams and Beverley Hills 90210 star Jason Priestly went to the same high school, Argyle Secondary School in Vancouver.
59. And while Bryan Adams is known for his singing, he once mixed up the lyrics of the Canadian national anthem.
60. The Canadian national anthem, ‘O Canada’, was itself composed in 1880.
61. However, the lyrics of the anthem were originally French and were then translated into English.
62. The final English version emerged two decades later, which remains with us today.

          La Roja : Alexis Sánchez y Claudio Bravo palpitan la gran final del domingo ante Alemania   



En La Roja se irradia una alegría inmensa por la gesta de conseguir tres finales en la misma cantidad de años consecutivos en torneo oficiales.


Es por eso, que no extrañó la distendida conferencia de prensa que dieron los dos jugadores con más presencias en nuestra selección como lo son Alexis Sánchez y Claudio Bravo con 114 partidos. Ultimando detalles para el duelo final de este que definirá al 11º ganador de la Copa FIFA Confederaciones ante Alemania en el estadio Zenit Arena. El capitán Claudio Bravo, fue claro al ratificar lo que buscan conseguir este domingo en San Petersburgo, donde esperan derrotar a los actuales campeones del mundo.


“Estamos claros en nuestro objetivo. Pasamos a la final y tenemos la meta alta y queremos ganar el título.


Tenemos selección desde hace tiempo para competir a este nivel”, indicó el meta. Bravo también analizó al seleccionado teutón con quienes igualaron 1-1 en la segunda fecha de las fases de grupos indicando que “será una final abierta, con dos selecciones que proponen y que tienen gol Ninguna va a renunciar a lo que ha hecho de cara a la final”.


Además, dio una particular visión sobre el momento actual y el futuro de la selección. “El tiempo nos ha dado la razón, que el trabajo da frutos y hemos revertido años de sequía. Es la cuarta final en dos años.


Ojalá que se repita más adelante”. También estuvo presente en la conferencia el goleador histórico de Chile, el delantero Alexis Sánchez, quien espera con ansias el duelo de este domingo.


“Hay que tener respeto también por Alemania, que tiene un gran equipo con grandes jugadores y corren todo el partido, pero en nuestro equipo cada jugador se siente con la mentalidad de ganar la final”, agregó el “Niño Maravilla”. Por último, el oriundo de Tocopilla fue enfático al decir a que fueron al torneo que se desarrolla en Rusia.


“Si no nos sintiéramos favoritos, mejore nos hubiésemos quedado en Chile y no venir a jugar la Copa. Los jugadores de este equipo se han caracterizado por la mentalidad ganadora que tiene cada uno”, cerró.

          How to Tackle the UK's Chronic Nursing Shortage—and Help Development   

What if there were a way to reduce the nursing shortage in the UK in a way that is good for the National Health Service (NHS), good for developing countries, and good for nurses? We believe this is possible, with something called a Global Skills Partnership, that uses UK aid in a win-win partnership with developing countries. In this blog post we explain exactly how it could work to relieve the strain on the UK’s beloved NHS, and how such an idea might be replicated in other countries and other contexts.

          Doctor’s searing chronicle of NHS piles pressure on Hunt   
Medics say ‘powerful portrayal of life on the frontline’ will deepen concern for health service

A junior doctor’s gripping account of working on the NHS’s frontline is likely to cause discomfort for Theresa May and the health secretary Jeremy Hunt.

Dr Rachel Clarke’s book chronicles how rota gaps, exhausted staff and risks to patient safety make a mockery of ministers’ claims to be creating a “world-class” health service. Leading medics believe that the honesty, humanity and unflinching detail in Clarke’s book, Your Life in My Hands, which is published this month, will deepen public concern about the state of the NHS as it enters the 70th year since its creation by the postwar Labour government in 1948.

          Celebrating Four Years of Oliver Levi!   
Our Oliver was born the day after Easter four years ago, a sweet little surprise. I had been experiencing pretty strong contractions that Good Friday throughout the day, four days before he would be born. I remember being so uncomfortable sitting in church, silently trying to time my contractions in my head. That Saturday they subsided some, but I still was pretty uncomfortable.  Since I was still over a month away from my due date, I chalked it up to pretty strong Braxton Hicks contractions and we went to my parents to celebrate Easter.

The next day and a half were still uncomfortable, so Jason and I decided we would call the doctor the next day if nothing more happened that night. On our hour long drive home, I called my doctor who told us to come in right away so that he could check things out, reassuring us that everything sounded fine. I will never forget the look on his face as he examined me and said, "You're seven centimeters dilated already." He hooked me up to some machines there and monitored my contractions. After awhile, he told us not to panic, but to head home to pack and get to the hospital quickly.

We called my parents so that they could come and get Henry, went home to pack, and then left for the hospital. We had to take Henry with us while my parents drove the hour long drive to get him. After he was picked up, I cried so hard because I had never been away from him for more than a couple of hours. I felt a little cheated that I didn't even get to spend that last month of pregnancy with just him.

After he left, a medical student broke my water and things happened quickly. I didn't get an epidural because the thought of a needle in my spine scared me more than the thought of painful contractions. I was ready to push after about an hour at the hospital and Ollie was born shortly after. Since he was a month early, he was taken for a couple of hours to be monitored because of a little fluid in his lungs.  He was 7 lb. 2 oz. and 21 in. long. Had I gone another month, he would have been quite the chunker!

A couple of notes:  There are a lot of pictures in this post.  Also, the pictures in the beginning were taken with our horrid, old camera.



























































Happy birthday, Ollie! You are our funny, sweet, stubborn, loving little boy and we are thankful to God every day for you!

          Comment on ‘This treatment of learning disabled people goes against everything social work should stand for’ by Forensic SW   
Whilst I agree with the majority of your post, there is a fundamental flaw within your opening paragraph- the term ATU correctly refers to services with the intention of short term assessment and treatment (and obviously the debate as to why they often fail to deliver upon that definition is right and proper) However, the overall inpatient population quoted at approximately 2500 (based on most recent NHSE dataset) includes a significant proportion that have been correctly diverted, at Court, from custodial sentences (as per Bradley recommendations); this population are not admitted to hospital for short term assessment and treatment, but for longer term offence specific work that 1) is not available within the prison estate, and 2) is not deliverable in the community due to risk. This patient group are also considered a risk of harm to others and therefore there is a dual role for rehabilitation and public protection. To bracket these patient groups together is misleading and dilutes the argument that you are trying to make

Amazon pulls blank ‘History of Palestinian People’ — which aims to dehumanize in order to subjugate

By Tom Suarez

Amazon pulled a book by the Israeli “publicist, editor and creative specialist” Assaf A. Voll, which reduces three thousand years of Palestinian history and achievement to 132 bank pages — blank, except for a printed watermark of a Palestinian flag superimposed over Palestinian/Roman pillars. It is aimed at dehumanizing Palestinians, and erasing a proud history.

Izzadine out loud: trans, Palestinian and proud

By Susie Day

Susie Day writes, "Izzadine was born 25 years ago in Albuquerque, New Mexico. His father, a Palestinian Muslim, and his mother, a white Christian, raised him and his two brothers Muslim. They also raised Izzadine female, but when he was 21 and in college, he came out as a transgender man and began, he says, to reinvent himself. He'd always wanted to live in New York, so he got a job at the Institute for Middle East Understanding, based in Brooklyn. Izzy's now here; he's queer; and–with due journalistic objectivity–he's slightly awesome. I started by asking him what it's like, combining Ramadan with Gay Pride."

          Debate: FCC's Net Neutrality 'Third Way'—The Wrong Way to Go   

The Federal Communications Commission's attempt Thursday to place the fast-moving broadband and Internet industry under a regulatory regime designed for monopoly-era telephone service is as misguided as it is puzzling. It's a government bureaucracy searching for a problem that doesn't exist. Is my, or your, Internet service provider perfect? Of course not. We all have complaints about Comcast or AT&T or whoever your provider is. But will more government make your Web surfing experience better, faster or cheaper? Not a chance.

The FCC plan actually risks slowing investment and innovation in broadband, meaning consumers could face slower Internet speeds and higher prices.

Another View:

Internet consumers should be cautiously optimistic about the FCC's net neutrality plan, says Megan Tady at Free Press.

At first blush, the idea that ISPs should be required to give every application equal treatment, one of the main motives behind "net neutrality," sounds fair. But let's start with Internet browsing. The FCC wants to limit or prevent ISPs like AT&T or Comcast from differentiating a customer who downloads large, network-hogging videos all day from someone who simply browses news websites and sends e-mail. In this net neutrality world, the big, bulky downloads and applications will end up eating up most of the bandwidth space and stifling access to smaller, less-bandwidth-intensive applications.

Thus, the very access for everyday people and small websites that advocates want to protect will actually be diminished.

The FCC also wants more control over your cell phone, and more regulations will arise as the Internet increasingly goes mobile through devices like the iPhone. The FCC wants a say in what Apple does, what Google does, how apps work together or with your phone, where and how an ISP and application provider work together. That level of micromanagement from government bureaucrats is a disaster in the making for an always-changing, rapidly evolving tech industry.

There are countless other ways the FCC is about to get involved in our lives:

Away from home and want to use your laptop to set your DVR to record the finale of "Lost"? Not if the FCC places restrictions on the way cable companies can link set-top box features to broadband Internet connections.

Want to turn on your house alarm remotely with your cell phone? Not if the FCC prevents or regulates service bundling or co-branding between broadband ISPs and alarm companies.

These are just two examples of consumer-friendly services that are available today. They arose out of the unregulated broadband ecosystem that could now be subjected to FCC intrusiveness if the agency gets its way.

There's no telling where else the government might demand jurisdiction. Going forward, when an ISP wants to develop and introduce an Internet service or feature it will have to be concerned about whether it will run afoul of, or draw scrutiny from, the FCC.

And more regulation means higher costs. As a result, many tech companies will be less likely to innovate and will build less broadband infrastructure. So instead of Internet speeds that have continued to grow, the government's net neutrality plans could stall future advancements and lead to deteriorating broadband infrastructure in some parts of the country.

Ultimately, any costs that tech companies and ISPs do incur from FCC meddling will be passed on to us, the end users. So we can probably expect higher bills, and perhaps all those surcharges and administrative fees found on phone bills will apply to our Internet service, too.

Bottom line: No matter what the information, the faster it is allowed to move and the easier it is for people, businesses and government agencies to link it together to produce value, the better it is for everyone. Until this week, even the FCC expressly understood and endorsed this approach.

Telephone service is about one-to-one connection. Broadband is about many-to-many interconnections. That's why the FCC separated the two to begin with. Constraining broadband with rules that applied to another service in another era can't help but end up as a policy disaster.

          Family Business   

It’s a little hard to compliment Jay-Z’s 4:44 without tipping the back of one’s hand. One can say it’s his best work in years, but he hasn’t made a great solo album since 2003, or even a pretty good one since 2009. One can say it’s a “cultural event,” but of course it is: He’s Jay-Z (or now, rather, JAY-Z), his wife is the biggest star in music, and 4:44 is his first album since she figuratively put him out in the street on Lemonade. One can say it’s the best rap album ever made by a 47-year-old, which it almost certainly is, but that’s not exactly blurb material. I can’t even tell you that you should go out and buy it, because you can’t—it’s currently available exclusively on Tidal, the streaming service part-owned by Jay-Z and Beyoncé.

The current decade hasn’t been particularly kind to Jay. 2011 saw the release of Watch the Throne, his hugely successful album-length collaboration with Kanye West, but coming as it did off West’s My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, it felt like the first time since “Brooklyn’s Finest” that Jay’s star was eclipsed by that of a collaborator. His next solo album, 2013’s Magna Carta Holy Grail, was a critical flop that felt musically and spiritually vapid and came bundled with an intrusive Samsung app. In 2014, he was attacked in an elevator by his sister-in-law over alleged marital infidelities, dalliances which then became a central theme of the best selling and most critically acclaimed album of last year.

4:44 offers a lot of good news for Jay-Z, so we’ll start with that. For starters, it’s far superior to Magna Carta and probably the best and most focused solo work he’s done since 2007’s American Gangster. The entire album is produced by legendary Chicago beatmaker No I.D., and the production is uniformly exquisite. The sample flips are wondrous, the too-rare pairing of a great producer and a generous clearance budget: Beats are constructed around Stevie Wonder’s “Love’s in Need of Love Today” (on “Smile”), Nina Simone’s “Four Women” and “Baltimore” (on “The Story of O.J.” and “Caught Their Eyes,” respectively), and Donny Hathaway’s “Someday We’ll All Be Free” (on the album’s closer, “Legacy”). The result is 10 tracks shot with musical warmth and understatement, a welcome departure from the kitchen-sink maximalism of much of Jay’s later work.

Lyrically, 4:44 offers plenty of grist for the internet, a wealth of gossip, innuendo, thinly-veiled barbs at competitors, and behind-the-scenes mogul-ing. But coming from one of rap’s all-time great narrative stylists, it often feels more concerned with the raw dumping of information than the art and panache with which it’s rendered. There’s an entire verse about Jay beefing with Prince’s lawyer over Tidal’s exclusive rights to the late Purple One’s catalogue, which is about as exciting as it sounds. A shot at Kanye West’s workout regimen as detailed on last year’s “30 Hours” is a tasty bit of pettiness (and Tidal cross-promotion), but it feels like empty calories when you remember this is the guy who once made “Takeover.”

This pesky half-bakedness—or perhaps half-heartedness—is most evident on “The Story of O.J.,” perhaps the album’s most conceptually ambitious track. The song starts out with the promise of an unflinching examination of race in America, deriving from O.J. Simpson’s oft-stated, and ultimately impossible, dream of being “not black, not white, just O.J.” The allusion portends a commentary on how the American prison of race entraps everyone, regardless of wealth and social status, and at first a lyrical detour from Jay into the dynamics of the New York real estate market seems like it might be an ironic aside. But by the time he’s off to bragging about the value of his art collection, plugging the price of a Tidal subscription, and tossing off idiotic stereotypes just a few moments later (“You ever wonder why Jewish people own all the property in America?”), it feels like he’s lost either the focus or the nerve to see the song’s premise through. The track’s music video is startlingly powerful, but like everything else here, you need a Tidal subscription to experience it.

4:44’s juiciest passages—the ones that have thus far prompted the most content and commentary—are Jay’s confessions of his philandering, quasi-revelations that are returned to with such frequently that their emotional weight starts to feel stepped-on. Jay’s first such admission comes by way of a comparison of himself to Eric Benét, Halle Berry’s ex, an odd confession-by-dated-analogy that offers little reflection other than acknowledging that both men have (or in Benét’s case, had) exceptionally attractive wives. Later Jay compares himself to The Godfather’s Michael Corleone—“Kay losin’ the babies because their future’s uncertain”—a strange interpretation of his wife’s miscarriage as karmic punishment for his own fidelity. (Jay repeats this same move later on the album with the line, “I apologize for all the stillborns/ ’cause I wasn’t present, your body wouldn’t accept it.”) It starts to feel like the worst pages of Drake’s playbook, in which female partners are ostensibly front and center, but mostly in relation to men feeling bad.

That said, there are plenty of genuinely moving moments here. Jay’s discussion of his mother’s sexuality on “Smile,” for instance—“Had to hide in the closet, so she medicate/ Society shame and the pain was too much to take/ Cried tears of joy when you fell in love”—a startlingly candid revelation of something that wasn’t public until the album’s release. And “4:44,” a song-length apology to his wife, contains probably the most romantic lyrics Jay has ever penned: “We’re supposed to vacay till our backs burn/ we’re supposed to laugh till our heart stops/ and then meet in a space where the dark stops/ and lets love light the way.” This is pretty beautiful writing, a moment when the self becomes sublimated to something larger. Unfortunately, the next lines sort of undo it: “Like the men before me, I cut off my nose to spite my face/ I never wanted another woman to know/ Something about me that you didn’t know.” Is this really the best time to (once again) bring up your own cheating? There’s a point when incessantly apologizing becomes just another way of talking about yourself.

The album’s second-to-last track, and to my ears its one uninterrupted moment of greatness, is “Marcy Me,” a reflection on Jay’s childhood home and origins that, fittingly, feels like something from another era. Over a sample of Portuguese rock group Quarteto 1111’s “Todo O Mundo E Ninguém,” Jay spits intricate rhymes with a wit and ferociousness we haven’t heard from him in years. Physically, he’s not quite up to it, though—he sounds winded, accidentally and remarkably human. On an album preoccupied with the appearance of vulnerability, it’s one of the few sustained moments that feels genuinely vulnerable.

Rarely does any musician makes the best music of his or her career at age 47 or even come anywhere close to it. Rock fans like to cite Dylan, the Stones, and Springsteen as exemplars of longevity, but when they were in their late 40s, they were making albums such as Down in the Groove and Steel Wheels or releasing boxed-sets of previously unreleased tracks. Taken in this context, the confidence and commitment of 4:44 is undeniably impressive, and it should return Jay to somewhere close to the center of the contemporary hip-hop conversation.

4:44 has been widely heralded as Jay-Z’s most “personal” album, and understandably so. But really, who out there has ever listened to “D’Evils” or “Song Cry” or “99 Problems” or “No Hook” or “So Ghetto” or “Heart of the City” or “Hard Knock Life” and thought they weren’t personal? All great art is personal, but that doesn’t mean all personal art is great, and 4:44 too often feels like vertically-integrated brand-building, chumming for audiences overly invested in figuring out whether Courtney-from-Hooters or Becky-with-the-good-hair are real people, and doxxing them. As business models go, this is a shrewd one: seize upon a public appetite for details on the world’s most famous marriage, give it to the internet in digestible pull quotes, make some short films, and stream it all on a service that you own for $9.99 a month, preferably on the Sprint network. But its preconditions are extreme fame and wealth, and as such it allows only a small handful of megastars to prosper while the rest of the industry depends on their largesse. Can’t knock the hustle, I guess, but I can’t quite bring myself to applaud it.

Mus czekoladowy na mleku kokosowym


Autor: Halina Joskowska Opublikowano: 5 kwietnia 2016 r. To właśnie koleżanka z pracy - Ala zainspirowała mnie do przygotowania tego deseru. Kiedy zaczęła mi opowiadać o zaletach musu na bazie kakao i mleczka kokosowego, delikatnie muśniętego ksylitolem po prosu wiedziałam, że muszę go popełnić. Rzeczywiście deser jest doskonały - rozpływa się w ustach mocno czekoladowy, subtelnie kokosowy - zachwycił wszystkich domowników i gości. Atutem jest prostota jego wykonania. Latem mus podaję z dodatkiem sezonowych owoców np. wiśni czereśni, jagód, czy malin, zimą z kawałkami orzechów prażonych migdałów, suszonych owoców. Aby wzbogacić smak można dodać łyżeczkę brandy - polecam :-)

          The Gel Could Save Your Sex Life   

Tracey Cox in the Mail on Female Viagra

I get dozens of emails every day from woman desperate for tips on how to get their sex drives back. What if I told you simply rubbing a gel onto your thighs or arms could get it back in two weeks?

I've seen this gel dramatically increase the sex drive of several women I know - with startling results - yet hardly anyone knows about it.

Testosterone gels, available on the NHS and privately, boost the level of the hormone which plays a role in our sex drive. We think of testosterone as a male hormone but women also produce it in lesser quantities.

If your testosterone level is low - which can happen pre-menopause, as well as after because the levels fall with age - the urge for sex decreases substantially. Replace what your body isn't producing anymore and you could find your sex drive is back to what it was in your 30s.

"I didn't really expect results because I haven't fancied sex with my husband for about 10 years," said one 37-year-old woman who is a fan of the gel. But by week two, my sex drive came back. I hadn't told my husband I was using the gel because I knew he'd be hurt if he realised I'd only been having sex to please him for years.

          1867 Speech of Louis-Joseph Papineau at the Institut canadien    
"When the right to freethinking, whether religious, political or scientific, is as generally proclaimed as it is it by the laws, the values and the practice of our days, it cannot be lost. Judicious people will not need to demand it later."


THIS IS PAPINEAU'S DENUNCIATION OF CONFEDERATION AS A SCAM OF THE RULING CLASSES IN QUEBEC AND ONTARIO, THE SAME GROUP KNOWN AS THE "FAMILY COMPACT" WHICH RULED BOTH COLONIES.  

THE FATHERS OF CONFEDERATION WERE A SMALL GROUP OF THESE WHITE MEN, BOTH CATHOLIC AND PROTESTANT, WHO SIGNED THE ACTS WITHOUT TAKING THEM TO THE PEOPLE

IT IS FOR THIS BASIC DEMOCRATIC PRINCIPLE OF NO TAXATION WITHOUT REPRESENTATION THAT PAPINEAU ACCUSES THEM FAILING TO GET CANADIANS  AND CANADIENS APPROVAL. THE CONSTITUTION THAT EVERYONE IS AFRAID TO OPEN AND DISCUSS TODAY IS BECAUSE THERE NEVER WAS A DISCUSSION OR VOTE BY THE ENFRANCHISED PEOPLE AT THE TIME OF CONFEDERATION 

THIS DOCUMENT WILL SHOW YOU THAT WHILE THE CANADIAN RADICALS OF 1827
PAPINEAU AND MACKENZIE KING WERE IMPRESSED BY ASPECTS OF AMERICA
PAPINEAU EXPLAINS WHY CANADA HAS A DIFFERENT SET OF LIBERAL IDEALS 
THAN OUR SOUTHERN NEIGHBOUR. 

HE WAS SO FAR SEEING THAT HE PREDICTS THE COMING OF CHINESE IMMIGRATION AND IMMIGRATION FROM ASIA IN GENERAL TELLING CANADIANS TO LOOK TO THE WEST ACROSS THE PACIFIC FOR CANADA'S FUTURE 

THIS  SHOULD BE REQUIRED READING IN ALL SOCIAL STUDIES AND HISTORY CLASSES IN CANADA IF WE STILL HAVE THEM IN K-12






1867 Speech of Louis-Joseph Papineau at the Institut canadien 



Among the most important and useful truths, those that pertain the the better political organization of a society are at the forefront. They are among those of which it is a shame to have not studied carefully, and cowardly to dare not proclaim, when we believe that those we possess are true and therefore useful.

The good political doctrines of modern times, I find them condensed, explained and delivered for the love of peoples and for their regeneration, in a few lines of the 1776 Declaration of Independence, and the 1789 Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen.

The true sociological doctrines of modern times can be summed up in a few words: Recognizing that, in the political and temporal order, the only legitimate authority is the one to which the majority of the nation has given its consent; that are wise and beneficial constitutions only those for which the governed have been consulted, and to which the majorities have given their free approbation; that all which is a human institution is destined to successive change; that the continuous perfectibility of man in society gives him the right and imposes him the duty to demand the improvements which are appropriate for new circumstances, for the new needs of the community in which he lives and evolves.



It is not the precipitated acceptance of the butchered Quebec Act of confederation that can prove the wisdom of the statesmen of England. It is not their work; it was prepared in hiding, without the authorization of their constituents, by some colonists anxious to stud themselves to the power that had escaped them. The sinistre project is the works of badly famed and personally interested men, it is the achievement of evil at the British Parliament, surprised, misled, and inattentive to what it was doing.


At first sight, the act of confederation cannot have the approval of those who believe in the wisdom and the justice of the Parliament and the excellency of the English constitution, since it violates its fundamental principles, by taking control over the sums of money belonging to the colonists alone and not to the metropolis nor to any authority in the metropolis. It is guiltier than any of the preceding acts. It has the same defects, and it has new ones, which are unique to it, and which are more exorbitant against the colonists than were those of the parliamentary charters granted or imposed before. 

The others were given in times and conditions that were difficult and exceptional. The transfer of a new country, with a majority whose religious beliefs and political education differed deeply from those of the minority, could have let us fear that the latter be exposed to denials of justice. Full religious tolerance, the most important of the rights which belong to men in society, had not been understood nor allowed at the time. England was persecuting at home, insane and unjust; she was insane and unjust here, here more than elsewhere, because the public law was supposed to protect us from evil. She ignored it. If she had restricted herself to protective measures for the minorities, she would have been praised; but she exceeded the goal, she oppressed the majority, she did wrong. But it was then a common error which misled her and which excuses her. The odious laws of intolerance are repudiated by all of the civilized world today, except for Rome and St. Petersbourg. There too however, sooner or later it will be necessary to render justice at the sight of the benefits which it pours on the States which respect it.

The concision in the word of Cavour: "The free Church in the free State", is one of the most beautiful titles given to respect, love and admiration, justly acquired by this famous statesman. These happy words, which once stated can never be forgotten, which, in a short sentence, contain a complete and perfect code on the subject they expose and explain, in one moment, -- as if all the tongues of fire of the Coterie had touched all those which tried to retain them -- allow us to understand, love, and proclaim the full truth which was only obscurely perceived and timidly loved before. And yet this revelation, sudden for a lot of people, is already codified, since a long time, for all, in the thirty-six States of the Union next door.

The free, independent Churches, separated from the State, do not require anything from it in presence of one another, are the happiest and become most useful, because of this separation from the State and the proximity of their rivals. They rely on their knowledge and their virtues, they do not require nothing else. They as nothing of what they consider useful to the promotion of their cult, all to the benefit of all their ministers, their charity, and their benevolent organizations. Watching one another, they are eminently moral, because the exposure and publicity would punish each fault they commit. No fault being able to go by unpunished, one will rarely occur. Where only one Church rules, it is not useful, it represses heresies, schisms and witches. Its adversaries claim: "it must necessarily be that it is wrong, if it is so cruel." and its friends say: "it must necessarily be that it is divine, if it obtains support in spite of these cruelties."

When the right to freethinking, whether religious, political or scientific, is as generally proclaimed as it is it by the laws, the values and the practice of our days, it cannot be lost. Judicious people will not need to demand it later.

Other parliamentary acts against Canada were acts of rigour, following disorders which would have been prevented by a tiny portion of the concessions that were granted much too late. The merit of these concessions is small and has little value, because they were made only after executions which were murders.

(The reference here is to the rebellion of 1837 in Upper and Lower Canada which Papineau was a leader of SEE I Am Canadien http://plawiuk.blogspot.com/2007/07/i-am-canadien.htm)

The present act was inflicted to provinces which were peaceful, where there no longer existed animosities of race or religion to calm down. Where nobody was guilty, all were punished, since they received a law for which they were not consulted.

This new governmental plan reveals, more than the others, the violent animosity of that the aristocracy feels towards elective institutions. It was only after long years of ceaseless efforts that the Legislative Councils were made elective. 


Did those who had been morally glorified by tearing off this important concession to the colonial and metropolitan authorities glorify themselves much today by ravishing it to their compatriots? On the contrary, they felt and they knew that they would not escape the contempt that these tergiversations deserved. They fought among themselves with eagerness to obtain nobility titles from overseas. They defrauded on the one hand their country and other the other they were even defrauding among themselves for the superiority of the rank; and they found ways to associate many accomplices to their shame, as if it was less dark because it was shared! They promised the elected councillors to have them counsellors for life. They created themselves a fake aristocracy, that became such by their participation in an obvious violation of the law. All these intrigues were immoral enough to please the English cabinet and to push it to adopt an act even worse than almost all its past wrongs. These reactionaries were asking the institutions of the Middle Ages back at the very moment the noble English people was demolishing them.

No, it is not true that the political discussions, which were as sharp in both Canadas, were a fight between races. They were as rough in Upper Canada, where there was only one nationality, than here, where there were two. The majorities of both of them were uninterested friends of rights freedoms, and privileges due to all the English subjects. They were voluntarily exposing themselves to lie full slanderings, to dangerous angers, to sanguinary revenges sometimes, from egoistic minorities, by themselves weak, but supported by the strength of the baionnettes paid with the gold of the people, but everywhere directed against the people.

The privileged people always think that the prayers and the complaints against the abuses which benefit them are an invitation to repress them by violence. 


Proud, just and enlightened men, whose convictions are intense because they are the result of strong studies and long meditations, have faith in the empire of reason, and it is for reason alone that they ask the correction of the abuses. Their efforts are addressed to all, to the powerful ones initially, to inspire them sympathy for the people that are suffering and that were impoverished by the abuses. They present them with glory and happiness to conquer, if they know how to render the society of their time more prosperous and more moral that it was it in the times which preceded. They address them initially and preferably, because their mind being more cultivated, they would be better prepared to be able to consider questions of general interest under all their various aspects, and to solve them quickly and correctly when selfishness does not blind them. They address the masses after, to say them that the sabre is not in their hands, but that reason is the richest and most invaluable of divine gifts and that it was separated almost equally amongst all, that the culture of the mind can centuplicate its fruitfulness and strength; that to clear the land one needs physical strength enlightened by experience, but that in order to make good constitutions and good laws, and to apply them wisely, it is necessary to have before all a strong reason, enlightened not only by serious studies, but above all by a real devotion to the country, and the absence of any personal covetousness of ambition or interest. Here is what could seen before, here is what has since become so rare, now that fortunes acquired at the expense of the public and personal honor, have become so numerous! How badly do these reproaches of propensity to violence come from those who constantly have recourse to violence to prevent the free discussion of political or social questions, physical violence by means of the law, moral violence by the anathema!

Papineau was 81 years old when he appeared at the Institute in 1867

Fernão de Magalhães descobriu as ilhas e chamou-as São Lázaro, mudado depois para Ilhas do Poente. Novamente mudada em homenagem à Filipe II da Espanha, o navegador Ruy López de Villalobos deu o nome de Filipina à ilha Leyte, onde chegou em 1542. Da ilha, o nome passou para todo o arquipélago. Fernão de Magalhães descobriu as ilhas e chamou-as São Lázaro, mudado depois para Ilhas do Poente. Novamente mudada em homenagem à Filipe II da Espanha, o navegador Ruy López de Villalobos deu o nome de Filipina à ilha Leyte, onde chegou em 1542. Da ilha, o nome passou para todo o arquipélago.

GEOGRAFIA

A Filipinas é um arquipélago, ou cadeia de ilhas. Consiste em mais de 7,000 ilhas e ilhotas. As 11 ilhas maiores respondem por mais que 90% da área de terra nacional total. As duas ilhas maiores, Luzon e Mindanao, incluem mais que 70% da área de terra e contêm mais que 70% da população. Luzon é a ilha maior na parte do norte do arquipélago, enquanto Mindanao é a ilha principal da parte meridional.

A área total da Filipinas é 299.900 Km2. A distância de Luzon do norte para Mindanao meridional é aproximadamente 1.855Km; a largura de leste a oeste estende-se em 480 km. As ilhas são localizadas na margem ocidental do Anel " de Fogo " do Pacífico e estão sofrendo modificações devido a atividade vulcânica. As ilhas têm um terreno muito áspero, então, há uma quantia muito limitada de terra boa para a agricultura. Na região também nota-se muito a atividade de terremotos.

O arquipélago inclui várias ilhas predominantemente montanhosas e grandes como também muitos atóis de corais minúsculos. A nação tem um litoral extenso com bons portos, com mais de 60 naturais, e a metade deles é desenvolvido e muito usado. A baía de Manila tem uma área de mais de 1.940 km e está entre os melhores portos do Leste. Tem o litoral descontínuo mas o mais longo de qualquer outra nação no mundo, com 34.600km.

As ilhas grandes começaram a se formar a 100 milhões de anos atrás, através dos vulcões marítimos que entraram em atividade, mas muitas das ilhotas minúsculas, são atóis construídos por formação de corais. As ilhas filipinas ainda sofrem com terremotos e atividades vulcânicas. Em média, há registros de algum terremoto nas Filipinas em cerca de cada dois dias. Muitos outros tremores de terra são muito fracos sem serem sentidos, mas há outros suficientemente fortes para causar muitos danos. Um terremoto muito forte tremeu a Filipinas em 16 de julho de 1990 e causou aproximadamente 1.600 mortes na cidade de Baguio.

As ilhas maiores têm montanhas altas. O cume mais alto é o Monte de Mindanao Apo, com 2.953m, mas a Cordilheira Central em Luzon do norte é o maior e mais áspero sistema de montanhas. Há cerca de 50 vulcões nas Filipinas, 14 ainda ativos. Um bem conhecido por sua simetria quase perfeita é o Monte Mayon, com 2.461m, localizado no sul. O Monte Pinatubo, com 1.781m, com cume em Luzon, estourou em 1991, depois de dormir por mais de 600 anos. Junto com terremotos associados, acumulações pesadas de cinza, e chuvas pesadas, esta erupção vulcânica causou 330 mortes e destruiu muitas casas. Foram lançadas cinzas e escombros para cima da atmosfera da Terra que padrões de tempo ao redor do globo foram afetados durante o ano de 1992.

AS DUAS ILHAS GRANDES

Luzon, a ilha maior, tem uma área de 104.690 KM2, além de ter o alcance da montanha mais alta da nação, na Cordilheira Central, Luzon também tem alguns de seus rios mais longos. Entre eles estão o Cagayan, o Agno, e o Pampanga. Os mais conhecidos dos rios de Luzon, porém, são o Pasig, um dos rios menores da ilha que originam o maior lago da nação, o lago Laguna Ladram, que atravessa Manila antes de esvaziar na Baía de Manila. O cume mais alto de Luzon e segundo mais alto das ilhas é o Monte Pulog, com 2.930 m.

Luzon inclui duas das quatro áreas principais do país: a Planície Central e o Vale de Cagayan. Estes são uma região agrícola rica. A Planície Central é a maior da Filipinas. Estende-se a aproximadamente 240 km de norte a sul e tem uma largura de 64 km.

O Vale de Cagayan, intercalado entre a Cordilheira Central e a Serra Madre, é escoado pelo Rio de Cagayan. Um vale de 10.360 km2, e quase 64 km de largura. Mais escassamente povoado que a Planície Central, o Vale de Cagayan se tornou um destino principalmente para colonos agrícolas no século XX, especialmente do Ilocos perto da região litorânea, uma área densamente povoada.

A maior cidade de Luzon é Manila, A capital nacional. Cidade de Quezon, é a segunda maior área urbana, ao nordeste de Manila. Serviu como o capital de 1948 a 1976, e muitos edifícios governamentais ainda estão lá. Outros centros de população consideráveis são Pasay, Legaspi, Baguio, Batangas e Laoag.

Mindanao, a segunda ilha maior, tem uma área de 94.630 km2. A Cordilheira do Pacífico corre ao longo da costa do leste da ilha e não deixa quase nenhuma planície litorânea. A oeste, no Cordilheira Central, os dois cumes vulcânicos inativos são Apo, o país mais alto, e Montam Matutum, a 2.295 m.

Vários rios cortam desfiladeiros na superfície dos planaltos. O rio Agus com 35 km, cai de uma altura de 700 m.

Há várias cidades populosas em Mindanao: como Zamboanga, Cotabato, Davao, Cagayan.

AS OUTRAS ILHAS GRANDES

Há mais oito grandes ilhas, porém quase nenhuma é tão grande quanto Luzon ou Mindanao. Sete destas ilhas pertencem ao grupo chamado as Ilhas de Visayan que situam-se na parte central e oriental entre as duas ilhas maiores. As outras ilhas principais são Mindoro, ao sul de Luzon, e Palawan, a sudoeste de Luzon.

As Ilhas de Visayan são Samar, Negros, Panay, Leyte, Cebu, Bohol, Masbate, e o grupo de Romblon. Destes, Samar e Negros são os maiores. As ilhas de Visayans somam um total de 61,077 km2. Entre essas sete ilhas há centenas de ilhas menores.

Samar está nas partes mais baixas, com colinas, e Negros tem um alto sistema de montanhas vulcânicas. Panay tem a terra áspera e está na costa ocidental. Montanhas dominam a porção ocidental de Leyte. Cebu, um das ilhas mais povoadas da nação, tem um interior montanhoso profundamente dissecado. Bohol consiste principalmente em planaltos e baixas colinas, tem inclusive as "Colinas de Chocolate", com este nome porque no verão a grama seca e fica com aspecto dourado, as Colinas de Chocolate tem aproximadamente 30 m.

Palawan é a Quinta ilha maior e Mindoro, a sétima. Em contraste com as outras ilhas na Filipinas, estas duas são restos da mesma plataforma de pedra geológica, a Estante de Sunda, como faz a ilha de Borneo. Provavelmente esta ligado ao fato das duas terem terras pobres. Acredita-se que há aproximadamente de 2 milhões a 10.000 anos atrás, Palawan já tinha vida vegetal e animal. Palawan tem 39 km de largura e 435 km de comprimento. Tem uma região montanhosa que corre sua extensão inteira. A área total de terra é de 11.785 km2. Com 2.085 m, o Monte Mantalingajan é seu cume mais alto.

Mindoro está a nordeste de Palawan. Sua área de terra é de 9.736 km2. Correndo de norte a sul existe uma planície litorânea. O cume mais alto é o Monte Halcon, com 2.587 m. Há duas cidades pequenas, Calapan e Mamburao.

CLIMA

O clima é quase que completamente seco, devido a proximidade das ilhas da linha do equador. Há também o climas das monções. As temperaturas que prevalecem ao longo do anos são de aproximadamente 24 C. Variações de Dia para noite são mais notáveis que variações mensais. Altitudes mais altas oferecem temperaturas mais frescas e diminuem aproximadamente 1.7 C para cada 300 m de altitude. A temperatura anual varia entre os meses mais frescos e mais mornos em menos de 5.6 C. No extremo sul a variação é de menos de 1.1 C. Durante o dia, as temperaturas escalam regularmente os 30 C, já à noite elas chegam abaixo de 20 C). A mais baixa temperatura registrada em Manila foi de 15 C. As temperaturas são normalmente mais altas durante a estação da seca, de março a junho, quando o sol está quase diretamente em cima do arquipélago, principalmente quando o céus está sem nuvens.

A maioria das chuvas que chegam, causam tempestades. As tempestades tropicais violentas, chamadas de baguios ou tufões. Estas tempestades ciclônicas originam-se no Oceano Pacífico ocidental, normalmente durante o verão. Há, em média, seis tufões há cada ano, que são semelhantes a furacões Atlânticos. Os tufões são caracterizados através de ventos extremamente poderosos, tipicamente a mais de 160 km/h, e chuvas muito pesadas. Um tufão em 1911 depositou 117 cm de chuva na cidade de Baguio, em Luzon, dentro de um período de 24 horas. Os ventos fortes, as chuvas pesadas, e os mares altos podem ser muito destrutivos. A parte meridional das Filipinas, é quase que livre de tufões.

TERRA

Áreas como das Filipinas que estão mornas e úmidas durante o ano todo têm terras relativamente infecundas, por causa de bactérias e das chuvas que dissolvem os elementos básicos da terra. Alguns minerais insolúveis, como ferro, permanecem atrás e dão a cor marrom avermelhada. O resto, por fim, são deteriorados. Essas terras têm pequeno potencial para colheitas crescentes. Há, não obstante, alguma espécie de floresta tropical que adaptou-se as terras rasas onde elas são nutridas por plantas deterioradas ou por microorganismos. Uma vez existindo florestas, elas são queimadas, exploradas comercialmente ou extintas por causas naturais.

Porém, há duas exceções muito significantes à qualidade de terra geralmente pobre: depósitos vulcânicos e aluviais. As terras derivaram de recentes cinzas vulcânicas, composta de materiais ácidos, ‘mas podem ser extremamente férteis. Os sedimentos constantemente levados pelos rios renovam a fertilidade de tais áreas e permitem a freqüente determinação agrícola.

FAUNA E FLORA

A Filipinas quase foi arborizada completamente antes da vida humana. Hoje menos que metade da área de terra total tem postos de árvores, e a cada dia, são destruídas mais florestas, talvez para sempre. A vida do restante das plantas é altamente diversificada e típica de florestas úmidas tropicais. Incluem muitas espécies de árvores e outras vidas de plantas. Entre espécies de árvores, predominam um pouco mais de 50 variedades, que correspondem a 70% da madeira comercializada. Esta família de árvores consiste em espécies que são normalmente bastante altas. Elas têm folhas perenes e contêm resinas aromáticas. Estes tacos tropicais normalmente acontecem em postos relativamente densos.

Além de árvores, as florestas filipinas contêm milhares de espécies de plantas e samambaias e umas 800 espécies de orquídeas. A maioria das áreas arborizadas extensas que ainda existem são localizadas em Mindanao, Palawan, e Mindoro. Áreas grandes de prados, ou cogonales, aparecem como resultado de repetidas queimadas. Estes prados são caracterizados através de gramas altas, freqüentemente com 1 ou 2m de altura, com lâminas grossas e afiadas. Eles não têm nenhum valor comercial.

Existem incontáveis espécies de mamíferos pequenos, pássaros e répteis que moram nas florestas, mas infelizmente, algumas espécies ficaram extintas por causa da destruição das florestas ou pelo espaço aberto para a agricultura ou para o uso urbano. Entre os animais que ainda existem estão macacos, ratos, cervos, gatos selvagens, morcegos, najas filipinas venenosas, e uma espécie rara de búfalo selvagem, chamado de tamarau. Este animal, só é achado na Ilha de Mindoro, existindo ainda apenas algumas centenas. Porcos selvagens que vagam as florestas são os descendentes dos antigos porcos familiarizados.

Dentre os animais extintos estão os crocodilos, a águia e um tipo de macaco.

As florestas tropicais provêem abrigos ideais para insetos que são muito abundantes.

MINERAIS

Enquanto a Filipinas tem depósitos abundantes de alguns minerais e recursos de energia, não pode ser chamado de país rico em tais recursos porque há falta de recursos essenciais a uma sociedade urbana e industrial moderna. Cerca de 90% do combustível consumido no país tem que ser importado. Em 1990 isto correspondeu a quase 15% de suas importações.

A quantia pequena de carvão que é minado não é bastante para ter um impacto significante na energia da nação ou nas necessidades industriais. O carvão que existe geralmente é de baixa qualidade.

A Filipinas tem quantias significantes de potencial hidroelétrico. O desenvolvimento mais notável foi construído ao Maria Cristina Falls perto de Iligan em Mindanao do norte. Também há poder hidroelétrico em Luzon. Foram construídas plantas geradoras em Luzon e em Leyte. A Filipinas é o segundo maior produtor de energia térmica do mundo, perdendo somente para os Estados Unidos, mas esta fonte ainda provê uma parte pequena das necessidades de energia totais da nação.

Uma variedade de ores de metal é abundante nas ilhas. Os mais valiosos são ouro, cobre e níquel que junto compõem quase todas as exportações minerais totais. Estes minerais são sujeitos a flutuações de preços de mercado do mundo, assim o valor deles para a Filipinas não é consistente. Em 1980, por exemplo, estes metais compuseram aproximadamente um quinto de exportações totais, considerando que em 1983 os minerais incluíram menos que um décimo das exportações totais.

A Filipinas é a maior produtora de cobre do Sudeste da Ásia e está entre o topo dos dez produtores no mundo. Dois quintos da produção total da nação vêm desta Ilha de Visayan central. Ouro e prata são abundantes em Luzon do norte, Mindanao do norte, e em algumas das Ilhas de Visayan. São localizados depósitos pouco desenvolvidos de ferro e níquel em Surigao, Mindanao.

PESSOAS

De acordo com o censo de 1990 a população da Filipinas era de 62.354.000, um aumento de 28% em relação à 1980. É a 14ª nação mais populosa no mundo e o terceiro mais populoso em Sudeste a Ásia depois da Indonésia e do Vietnã. Mais que 60% da população da Filipinas vivem nas áreas rurais. Elas trabalham na agricultura produzindo arroz, milho, cana-de-açúcar, e coco.

Mais de dois quintos da população mora em cidades. A maioria dos moradores das cidades, aproximadamente 12% da população total, reside em Manila, a capital da nação e maior centro urbano. Esta enorme aglomeração metropolitana de mais de 8 milhões de pessoas, faz a 23º maior área metropolitana do mundo.

Quase a população filipina inteira consiste em pessoas malaias da raça Mongolóide. Coletivamente são chamados Filipinos, mas a população é subdividida em vários grupos de etnias.

Os maiores destes grupos de etnias são os Tagalog, os Ilocano, os Bicol, os Pampangan, e os Pangasinan de Luzon; e os Cebuano, os Waray-Waray e os Hiligaynon das Ilhas de Visayan. Com aproximadamente 30% da população, os Tagalog são pessoas nativas da região de Manila e os Cebuano, com aproximadamente um quarto da população, são os maiores grupos.

Ainda há alguns conhecidos como Negritos que vivem nas áreas do planalto de Luzon, Mindanao, Panay, e algumass outras ilhas. Em 1971 a existência do Tasaday, uma tribo de Negrito previamente desconhecida de cerca de 25 pessoas em Mindanao foi descoberta. Eles pareceram estar morando em cavernas, como muitas pessoas da Idade de Pedra fizeram. Em 1986 perguntas sobre a autenticidade deles foram levantadas por alguns antropólogos que hoje acreditam que esta descoberta era uma brincadeira.

GRUPOS ÉTNICOS-LINGÜÍSTICOS

O Filipino, o idioma nacional da Filipinas, está baseado no idioma de Tagalog. O Inglês que foi ensinado cedo nas ilhas desde a conquista americana é o segundo idioma mais comum, estes são os dois idiomas oficiais do país. São ensinados ambos os idiomas nas escolas, embora o inglês permaneceu o médio primário de instrução.

Regido pela Espanha durante quase 330 anos até 1898. Porém, o idioma espanhol é falado por menos que 1 por cento da população, apesar do regime colonial longo da Espanha.

A influência colonial americana prevaleceu de aproximadamente 1901 até 1940. Naquele período havia um sistema educacional americano e, com isto, o inglês falado hoje é considerado como um segundo idioma. Aproximadamente dois quintos da população falam o inglês. Junto com o Pilipino, idioma derivado do Tagalog. O inglês é um dos dois idiomas oficiais.

A Filipinas, como o Sudeste asiático, geralmente é bastante diverso na maquiagem étnica e lingüística.

Existem aproximadamente 90 idiomas indígenas e dialetos. Só oito destes idiomas têm mais de um milhão de locutores cada. Os idiomas mais proeminentes e as porcentagens da população que os fala são: Tagalog, em sua forma unificada conhecida como Filipino (30%); Cebuano (24%); Ilocano (10%); Hiligaynon ou Ilongo (9%); Bicol (6%); Waray-Waray, ou Samar-Leyte (4%); Pampangan (3%); e Pangasinan (2%). Pessoas que falam algum destes oito idiomas como uma língua mãe compõem quase 90% da população. Esta diversidade de idiomas, junto com a introdução de um sistema de instrução estrangeiro durante o período colonial americano, facilitou a adoção do inglês como o idioma secundário. O inglês é o único idioma mais falado e é o médio de instrução em escolas ao longo da nação. Foram designados Filipino e inglês os dois idiomas oficiais em 1962. Outros idiomas estrangeiros secundários incluem o chinês e o espanhol. O chinês é falado pela minoria chinesa que reside principalmente nas cidades.

DISTRIBUIÇÃO DA POPULAÇÃO

A população filipina é muito mal distribuída, com concentrações na Planície Central e nas ilhas de Visayan de Cebu, Negros, Panay, e Bohol. Desde os anos 30 houve migrações consideráveis às áreas rurais densamente povoadas, especialmente em Mindanao e no Vale de Cagayan de Luzon do norte. Esta redistribuição da população resultou em uma expansão mais plana das pessoas ao longo da nação.

A população tem aumentado a uma taxa anual de 2.5 a 3% entre o crescimento mais alto durante as últimas décadas. Este é o resultado de um coeficiente de natalidade cru alto do qual nasceram de 30 a 45 por mil desde os anos cinqüenta, aproximadamente, e uma baixa taxa de morte crua de aproximadamente 15 por mil desde os anos cinqüenta. A taxa de crescimento anual atual, implica que a população dobrará em aproximadamente 28 anos. Até mesmo se a taxa de crescimento desça 2%, o que é uma possibilidade improvável, ela dobrará em 35 anos.

CULTURA

A Filipinas é uma das maiores nações asiáticas. Sua religião dominante é o Catolicismo romano, mas há também muitos muçulmanos. A preponderância de locutores ingleses é um resultado de mais de quatro décadas de controle pelos Estados Unidos. O contraste causado por ele foi um fator no conflito crescente entre as populações rurais e urbanas, e combustível para os comunista e insurreições muçulmanas. Ainda, a sociedade é caracterizada como um todo através de distinções afiadas entre rico e pobre, maiorias e minorias, privilegiado e desprivilegiado, etc. A existência destas divisões são parte da herança católica espanhola. Divisões sociais semelhantes seguraram o desenvolvimento econômico na América Latina.

A FAMÍLIA E A SOCIEDADE

A unidade social básica nas Filipinas foi tradicionalmente a família, freqüentemente que inclui os avós e outros parentes. Em casas tradicionais, homens são as cabeças das casas e são responsáveis para o bem estar financeiro da família. Porém, não são restringidas as mulheres criar as crianças, elas trabalham freqüentemente fora da casa. As mulheres Filipinas trabalham em uma grande variedade de trabalhos e dirigem seus próprios negócios.

Crianças Filipinas aprendem cedo a cuidar das suas funções na família deles. Eles aprendem que eles devem, em troca, cumprir suas obrigações perante a família. Como crianças, as responsabilidades deles incluem respeito aos anciões, o ao cuidado de irmãos mais jovens, o desempenho de tarefas domésticas, e comportamento que trará honra para a família.

Nas famílias católicas, as crianças são batizadas quando elas têm uma ou duas semanas de idade. Eles são confirmados entre 5 e 8 anos. O batismo e cerimônias de confirmação também têm significado religioso.

Os Filipinos geralmente não são considerados adultos até que se casem e comecem a criar uma família. O matrimônio une duas famílias juntas, e o nascimento de crianças fortalece-as. As condições de alojamento variam com a localização da casa (rural ou urbana) e com o estado socioeconômico da família. Uma habitação rural tradicional consiste em um ou dois quartos. Este edifício pequeno normalmente é elevado vários metros sobre o solo em madeira para proteger a casa de inundações e pestes e prover um abrigo e área de armazenamento para animais, colheitas, e utensílios. São abrigados freqüentemente galos de prêmio em gaiolas debaixo da casa.

Por causa das migrações do país para a cidade extensa, houve uma taxa natural de aumento da população, com escassez de moradias. Isto é especialmente verdade na área de metropolitana de Manila. Famílias de baixa renda nas cidades são abarrotadas em rua suja com materiais de água inadequados, serviço de saúde pública pobre, e freqüentemente sem eletricidade.

Os residentes mais prósperos de Manila, têm casas próprias tradicionais do estilo espanhol ou de rancho mais moderno. Todas as cidades grandes na Filipinas têm áreas residenciais luxuosas. Estes bairros são segregados fisicamente do resto da cidade por paredes altas de concreto, com vidros quebrados ou arame farpado embutidos no topo.

COMIDA E VESTIMENTA

A principal comida da maioria dos Filipinos é o arroz. Este é completado com peixe e outro frutos do mar, galinha, e porco.

O milho é o grampo para aproximadamente um quinto da população que vive em áreas não satisfatórias para a produção de arroz ou não dispõe de arroz. Colheitas de raízes, inclusive batatas e cassava, que são comestíveis básicos para a minoria das famílias de baixa renda. Dietas também incluem uma ordem de frutas tropicais: bananas, maçãs de estrela, mangas, mamões e o durian de cheiro forte, que é nativo do Sudeste da Ásia. É uma árvore que proporciona uma fruta dura, do tamanho de um coco, com polpa comestível. Embora a polpa tem um gosto doce, tem um odor bastante pungente.

Uma comida típica na Filipinas po de incluir arroz fervido, bihon (talharins de arroz), pesque, legumes guisados, e frutas. Lechon, um porco inteiro enchido com arroz ou bananas, é preparado em ocasiões especiais, como a festa anual celebrada em barangays e cidades católicas romanas da Filipinas. O porco é assado em um cuspe de bambu e é servido com um molho feito do fígado de porco. Bibingka, feito de massa de arroz, é uma sobremesa popular. Bebidas alcoólicas nativas incluem tuba (suco de coco fermentado), basi (suco de cana-de-açúcar fermentado), e lambanog que é destilado de arroz fermentado. Balut, um embrião de pato parcialmente formado em um ovo que foi fervido por alguns momentos, é vendido por vendedores ambulantes pelas noites na área de Manila. É recomendado que esses que tentam esta delicadeza pela primeira vez devessem comer isto na escuridão, assim eles não podem ver o que eles estão a ponto de tragar.

Um artigo de vestuário tradicional para homens é o tagalog de barong, uma camisa exterior bordada. Embora seja um artigo de vestuário cotidiano, uma versão deste pode ser usada freqüentemente nas ocasiões mais formais. Mulheres usam borboleta-sleeved, uma espécie de terno para ocasiões formais. Os vários grupos muçulmanos no sul e as tribos montesas têm os próprios artigos de vestuário distintivos. Os muçulmanos de Maranao e de Mindanao meridional, por exemplo, têm o malong colorido, é um pano grande embrulhado ao redor do corpo e é usado p
