DOMINICAN REPUBLIC DEMOCRACY AT STAKE!!!

PLEASE HELP!! We need international media coverage in our country! Our country’s democracy is being held hostage due to a corrupt cartel of dominican politicians, lawmakers and judges! A tax reform was passed by the Dominican House of Representatives (Camara de Diputados) in a record time of 3 minutes yesterday November 8th, 2012 without any civil and democratic deliberations on the proper way of applying an integral tax reform. Instead an imposed and utterly nefast tax reform was passed which will ultimately scourge every dominican in the most Dantistic ways in order to pay for a 4.6 BILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT created by the past corrupt administration of Leonel Antonio Fernandez Reyna. We are currently in an institutional dictatorship as Leonel Fernandez played the correct chess moves in order to control both Houses of Congress, the Supreme Court and the newly created Constitucional Court.

Yesterday after the tax reform was passed, state university (Universidad Autonoma de Santo Domingo) students using their constitutional right to protest in the most civil ways (without the use of force or weapons), National Police (Policia Nacional) agents cold-bloodedly attempted to gun down students with real bullets killing Willy Warden Florian Ramirez, a medicine student who was not participating of the protests.

Now the government of president Danilo Medina through their party influences in both Houses of Congress are looking into imposing changes in the Dominican Republic Penal Code which takes away our freedom of speech by imposing penalties to citizens and newspaper reporters which dare to question or insult the President, Vice-President, cabinet members of the administration, lawmakers of both Houses and Supreme and Constitutional Court Judges.

We urgently need your help. We need international media coverage so the world is informed of how our rights, our liberties, our peace is Maquiavelicly sucked away from the dominican people.

Please help and pray for our nation!

Trance for me is more like the basic channel stuff, hypnotic and trance-inducing. The word trance has been bastardized to mean something totally different to what I originally intended and hoped it to be. To be trancy a record has to be monotonous almost, a long sequence without pause without a massive breakdown, up and down. This isn’t trance, you can’t fall into a trance when your emotions are being dragged up and down.

Happy Sunday !

Some people say, ‘Revenge is a dish best served cold.’

But they are wrong. Revenge is a dish that is best never served at all. Whenever it is served, regardless of the temperature, who does it serve? And to whom does it do a disservice? Just as anger is a destructive emotion, the desire to ‘teach someone a lesson’ carries a lesson of its own for the would-be teacher. It robs us of our freedom to let go, to move on and to do more constructive things with our time and energy..

5 Steps to an Effective Apology

A genuine apology is not a habitual apologetic mannerism. It is a deliberate effort to solve a relational problem that you have contributed to. This requires of discipline. Believe me because I know from experience.
I struggle with apologies as much as the next person. I find it’s usually the hardest when the relationship is particularly important to me, like my direct family. When I’m in the wrong, I will try anything I can think of, short of apologizing, to try and solve the problem.
Sooner or later, though, I have to swallow my pride and apologize. It should be no surprise but usually my apology contributes to healing a damaged relationship. Often the relationship ends up stronger than ever. Apology is one of the toughest but most productive habits that I am trying to adopt. We all need to sharpen up our apology sense.


How to apologize:

1-Make it genuine – Anyone can spot a false apology and it will do more harm than good. A genuine apology is aimed solely at taking responsibility and overcoming a disturbance. There are no hidden obligations or expectations attached.

2-Don’t justify your actions – If you are busy explaining why you did what you did, it will start to sound like you aren’t apologizing at all, that you aren’t ready to take responsibility. A brief explanation may help understanding, while a justification may just fuel the disturbance.

3-Make a commitment to change – If you can’t confirm that you mean to improve, then you aren’t committed to an apology. If you aren’t committed to changing your habit of getting home late, don’t say “Sorry I am home late”. This will be a hollow and ineffective apology. You are better off thanking the other person, “Thanks for putting up with me coming home so late. I appreciate it” and taking it from there.

4-Phrased you apology carefully – Make sure the other person knows why you are apologizing. “I was passing by so I thought I’d drop in and say sorry” is a lot different to “I wanted to come and apologize because I really do care about this relationship”. Don’t fake it. If you have a good reason to keep the relationship alive the other person will want to hear it.

5-Be prepared for an awkward conclusion – While sometimes an apology is followed straight away by a counter apology and peace and flowers and little birds carrying banners of love through the air, not everyone reacts this way. Some people will behave indifferently, some will behave coldly, and some will react in a downright hostile way. This is out of your control. You have made the step to apologize. Doing it in a productive way is the best you can do. Maybe the other person will appreciate it now, later, or never. No matter what, you have done your bit and you can relax. The rest is up to them.

Twitteros Dominicanos

Alguna vez te ha pasado que cuando estás leyendo el timeline de twitter quisieras como decirle tres vainas a una serie de personajes que no le das unfollow para evitar que se ofendan contigo? Así nace este blog, es como mi desahogo y posiblemente el de muchas personas que seguro se sentirán identificadas conmigo. No tengo la más mínima idea de cuando estaré aquí nuevamente o si volveré a escribir, pero como nuestro país es una eterna fuente de inspiración, quien sabe…

Este primer post lo dedico a Twitter y los payasos que aparecen por ahí. A continuación 5 de mis personajes “favoritos”…

1: Las jamonas despechadas: Son aquellas infelices bipolares que un día son ‘las más montras’ porque ‘tan solteras y felices’ y se van a llevar el mundo por delante, pero al otro día se la pasan dándole RT a UgglyTruth, TheNotebook, tirando plegarias y haciendo roles de víctimas como para ver si les preguntan “Mi hija y que te pasa?” y así ellas poder responder con un RT algo cool como “La vida… eso me pasa” (cuando realmente lo que les pasa es que tienen un buen tiempo que no les pasa nada por donde les tiene que pasar.) Hermana, dedique ese tiempo que emplea tuiteando disparates en buscarse un hombre que la castigue y ese día será una criatura feliz.

2: Los mal#$%&! Quoters: Son aquella serie de perdedores que se pasan el día poniendo quotes de otra gente ya que su capacidad mental no les permite crear nada original que decir. Y de los que viven poniendo fuñendas de superación personal… Solo me queda compartir con ustedes mi reflexión al respecto… Quote this: “Los quotes de superación personal y éxito son la esperanza de aquellos que jamás han podido lograr absolutamente nada por si solos” De verdad dejen ese complejo de autores de la secuela de “The Secret” y hagan algo productivo con su tiempo libre.

3: Los Twitlebrities: Estas son las celebridades auto consagradas del twitter, aquellos que tienen más de mil followers porque tuitean en inglés, viajan más de una vez al año y hacen todo un evento de su experiencia en cada destino. Esos que dan RT en vez de Reply hasta para responderle ‘SI’ a uno de sus seguidores, lógicamente para que todo el mundo sepa lo que le preguntaron. Esos que usan foursquare para gritarle al mundo que ellos solo van a los sitios ‘cool’ de aquí. En fin, típico dominicano con ganas de llamar la atención.

4: Los “Marketing Gurus”: Estos me molestan más que los que descubrieron lo que era SOPA ayer y de la nada se convirtieron en los más activistas. Dichos gurus (en su mayoría, ya que sorprendentemente hay excepciones) creo que deben revisar sus técnicas mercadológicas y ver por qué al final del día siguen siendo unos tristes empleados 8 a 5 pioneros en absolutamente nada.

5: Los #TEMBLO: No hay nada como un terremotico para que el dominicano saque ese celular juyendo para tuitear: “TEMBLO!!!”. Se pasan 25 minutos en “lo sentiste?” “Y ahora como me voy a dormir?” “Dios está aquí” “RT Bibliaenlinea…” “yo nunca había sentido uno tan largo y tan duro” ( no sean mal pensados, y si, esto es real me lo dijeron una vez después de un temblor). El caso es que si no le cayó un abanico encima y le partió la cabeza… cállese y vuélvase a dormir que todo está bien. Cuando el temblor pase de 6 grados entonces nos mandamos a correr todos juntos por el Botánico como buenos hermanos.

Y para despedirme, mis favoritos, Los “Haters”: Ya que son los únicos que tienen cierto grado de honestidad en cada uno de sus tweets.

Esto ha sido todo por hoy… si me faltó alguno siéntanse en libertad de tirarlo en los comments. Hasta pronto!

UPDATE: Bonus Hate!!!!

Increíble como se me escaparon estas dos…

Los críticos de arte marca TANG (Como al juguito que le echas un chin de agua y listo! un Master en Entertainment Business): Estos seres se pasan todo el año sin poner un tweet y desde que llega una premiación agarran ese celular y como que se transforman. “Yo no puedo creer que ganó fulana y no fulana” “Golden Globes sucked fulano was robbed” (Hacen una rabieta de 7 tweets y de to) Hermana quién es usted? Usted sabe un carajo de lo que se mueve en la industria del entretenimiento? Entiendo que por alguna razón los que deciden quiénes ganan tienen ese puesto o no?…. Por otro lado, cuál es la necesidad de poner 10 tweets por minuto reportando todo lo que pasa como si uno no tuviera una tv enfrente??. Y por ultimo, creo que antes de criticarle la ropa a los artistas primero piense lo siguiente: “ Yo tengo el efectivo para comprarme eso? Si su respuesta es negativa hermana cállese, si es positiva… vaya, cómpreselo a ver si le queda igual que a Angelina y después hablamos.

Los OMG GG!!!! Cuándo será que van a cancelar la bendita serie para no tener que ver cada lunes un “OMG I LOVE CHUCK BASS” o un quote de Blair retuitiado por 10 manganzonas de 28 años?

Amigos gracias por la buena aceptación del Blog ya hasta invitados especiales tenemos para próximas entregas. Nos vemos pronto.

You can spend, minutes, hours, days, weeks or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened - or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on.
