Isto deve ter sido encomendado pelo Costa

Não há nada que um tipo possa fazer bem que eles não venham logo desfazer com a porcaria dos números.

ONE

Dear Patricia

A lot has changed in a decade.

10 years ago, Facebook existed on a computer in a college dorm. There were no tweets, hashtags or iPhones. The only people occupying Wall Street wore suits and the Tea Party had a colonial Boston accent. And ONE was but a few.

It was started mainly because, truth be told, Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu asked us to. And really... who says no to the two of them?

What was needed, they felt, was a demonstration of support for the world’s poorest... citizens around the globe standing in solidarity with one another and calling on leaders to do more of what helped and less of what hurt the most vulnerable people on the planet.

And so, ONE was born.

A few of us gathered near the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia to launch a campaign to lift millions out of poverty. We knew each person could make a difference, but we believed that if we worked together as ONE - we could change the world.

10 years later, I am blown away by what you've accomplished, by working together across continents and ideologies, and by holding tight to the belief that the fight against poverty isn’t about charity, but about justice and equality.

And you got busy. Watch this. Spread it. Share it. Pass it on.

10 years together

Debt relief for dozens of countries in Africa that helped put an extra 54 million kids in school. Aid made more effective and accountable. Tough laws passed to help ensure the oil, gas and minerals under the ground in poor countries aren’t stolen from the people living above them. 7.5 million people in Africa are thriving on ARVs; malaria death rates have been cut in half in 13 countries across the continent. Political leaders from left, right and centre hit with calls, letters, town hall meetings and tweets and forced to take a stand on the fight against extreme poverty.

ONE’s tagline is one of the few things that has stayed the same: “We’re not asking for your money. We’re asking for your voice.” So today, ten years on, we want to thank you for using your voice - whether through a click, an email, a letter, a phone call, a conversation, a demonstration, a sit-in, a stand-up...

Your voices together - that has made all the difference.

Thank you.

Bono

Mais um carro novo – 2

por João Carvalho, em 02.10.10

Por causa das coisas, é bom que se saiba (1) que o gabinete do primeiro-ministro adquiriu um Mercedes-Benz S450 para substituir um BMW 750iLA e (2) que agora «ninguém parece querer assumir a propriedade do luxuoso veículo». Se qualquer um dos dois factos é muito edificante por si só, os dois juntos ilustram bem os grandes exemplos que vêm de cima. Cá em baixo, o povão regista.

Mais um carro novo

por João Carvalho, em 01.10.10

Acabo de ouvir da boca de Miguel Relvas que o gabinete do primeiro-ministro comprou agora um carro de 150 mil euros. Se não for um carro da Águas de Portugal, espero que seja um veículo de recolha de lixo.

O beijo e a dúvida

por João Carvalho, em 12.07.10

Tal como conta o António Manuel Venda aqui por baixo, a repórter Sara Carbonero recebeu um beijo inesperado do entrevistado Iker Casillas, seu namorado e capitão dos campeões do mundo. Partindo do princípio de que este não usa baton, falta saber quem a encheu de beijos também.
