Se eu algum dia morasse em Oslo o Vigeland Park ía ser -sem qualquer sombra de duvida- o meu sítio preferido.

Marteladas no S Joao 2011

"E d'hoje a oito é prá semana... Olé! Olé!"

"Oh minha filha nunca'gastes tudo!"

E pegar fogo a palmeiras, hum?!

"Estava tudo muito bom... as sardinhas é que eram poucas. "

"É o homem da febra"

"Bota no facebuki!"

"A gente gosta muito de vir aqui tocar no S. João, por isso deixem-nos trabalhar"

More than 70,000 trained forces sent out to streets as part of effort to combat 'western cultural invasion'

"Iranian men have been banned from wearing necklaces in the latest crackdown by the Islamic regime on "un-Islamic" clothing and haircuts. Thousands of special forces have been deployed in Tehran's streets, participating in the regime's "moral security plan" in which loose-fitting headscarves, tight overcoats and shortened trousers that expose skin will not be tolerated for women, while men are warned against glamorous hairstyles and wearing a necklace. 

The new plan comes shortly after the Iranian parliament proposed a bill to criminalise dog ownership, on the grounds that it "poses a cultural problem, a blind imitation of the vulgar culture of the west".
The Irna state news agency said the trend was aimed at combating "the western cultural invasion" with help from more than 70,000 trained forces, known as "moral police", who are sent out to the streets in the capital and other cities.
Under Islamic customs, dogs are deemed to be "unclean". Iranians, in general, avoid keeping them at home, but still a minority, especially in north Tehran's upper-class districts, enjoy keeping pets. Last year Ayatollah Makarem Shirazi, a prominent hardline cleric, issued a fatwa against keeping dogs and said the trend must stop.
Last summer authorities in Tehran also released a list of approved hairstyles in an attempt to offer Islamic substitutes to "decadent" western cuts, such as the ponytail and the mullet."

Afghanistan worst place in the world for women

"Targeted violence against female public officials, dismal healthcare and desperate poverty make Afghanistan the world's most dangerous country in which to be born a woman, according to a global survey released on Wednesday.
The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), PakistanIndia and Somalia feature in descending order after Afghanistan in the list of the five worst states, the poll among gender experts shows."
