Message for a shared and multiplied grandfather

i am fidel

Post By @CubanWindow

Automatically translate from Google / Original Post: An emotional message from Fidel’s grandson By Fidel Antonio Castro Smirnov

Message written in the visitors’ book of the Cemetery of Santa Ifigenia, last March 25, by Dr. Fidel Castro Smirnov, professor at the UCI, grandson of the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution.

Dear grandfather:

First of all I want to express to you that this is not a farewell. Together with millions of Cubans, revolutionaries inside and outside Cuba, with your family, as grateful grandson, I will never want to let go the Commander-in-Chief, the father of the Revolution, or the most universal of all Cubans of the 20th century And XXI, neither the guerrilla, nor the close friend, nor the educator, nor the scientist. Nor the creator, nor the companion, nor the undefeated and eternal Fidel, nor my grandfather. You will always be my guide, who inspires me every day and motivates me.

Writing in this book brief ideas, today I fulfill a commitment with the excellent collective of work of Santa Ifigenia, with the companions of the FAR and the battalion of ceremonies. All of them, whom I consider as my family, meet daily with the careful duty to take care of you and pay you well deserved homage. I am very much informed that you continue to be very well cared for and surrounded by love.

‘Manhattanhenge’ 2017


Post by @CubanWindow

Today the  sun will be aligned with the east–west streets of the main street grid of Manhattan.

Manhattanhenge is a two-day event that happens twice a year, first in May and then in July. This year the dates and times are:

  • May 29, at 8:13 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.
  • May 30, at 8:12 p.m. E.D.T.
  • July 12, at 8:20 p.m. E.D.T.
  • July 13, at 8:21 p.m. E.D.T.

Forecasts suggest rain may dampen Manhattanhenge on Monday. The outlook is brighter for Tuesday.

American Museum of Natural History

What will future civilizations think of Manhattan Island when they dig it up and find a carefully laid out network of streets and avenues? Surely the grid would be presumed to have astronomical significance, just as we have found for the prehistoric circle of large vertical rocks known as Stonehenge, in the Salisbury Plain of England. For Stonehenge, the special day is the summer solstice, when the Sun rises in perfect alignment with several of the stones, signaling the change of season Continue to reading HERE

Clouds May Spoil ‘Manhattanhenge’ Return / NY1

Cloudy weather could spoil the fun for a solar phenomenon in the city Monday night. “Manhattanhenge” is when the sunset aligns exactly with Manhattan’s east-west numbered streets. It creates unique photo opportunities, like this one from a couple of years ago. If the sun’s out at all tonight, you’ll be able to see the half of the sun at 8:13 p.m. The sun will then fully align and be visible Tuesday at 8:12 p.m. The term “Manhattanhenge” is a play on Stonehenge, where the sun aligns with the stones on the sunrise of the summer solstice with a similarly dramatic effect.


The truth of the 42 dead in Venezuela (Video / R)

Post By @CubanWindow WIF Cubainformacion  (we made a translation  with the main facts that are exposed in the video)

  • The vast majority has been killed by opponents
  • 25 of them were “chavistas” or policemen
  • 2 motorcycles drivers died by the placement of barricades by the opposition
  • 9 electrocuted in the looting of a bakery
  • 3 deaths were caused by police action and several officials have been detained
  • 3 young men were killed with homemade weapons fired at close range that point to selective murders of false flag
  • The media do not show the real violence of the protests and the neo fascist character of many of its participants
  • The president Nicolas Maduro has given orders that in no case the police carry firearms
  • The beatings to people who manifest themselves against violence or to police never appear in the international media
  • The lynching of journalists does not appear either
  • Neither transmit the attack to public centers, government assets, home of “chavistas” and maternal hospitals, doctor’s offices or libraries
  • The media also do not tell us that the violent protests are concentrated in a few middle and upper-class municipalities where the majorities oppose the service of their protests to the local police and even their garbage trucks that scatter the wastes that are then burned in the streets and highways
  • The big media are not interested in spreading these facts
    Its objective is to prepare the public opinion for an intervention in Venezuela as it was in Libya
  • To avoid this, a courageous and solidary preventive mobilization and the denunciation of these vulgar propagandists of violence and terror are necessary.

Notes needed: Cuba facing the 2018 elections. Electoral System & Constitution.

Post by @CubanWindow from the original post The elections, the Constitution and the mistakes. #CubaEsNuestra #Cuba by Ileana Gonzales

Our Greece is preferable to Greece that is not ours. Jose Marti.

Automatically Translate from the original / Google

An Argentine friend told me about an article she had read on a website about the Cuban Electoral System and the Constitution. She approached me with doubts and asked me to read it together because there were affirmations that caught her attention.

As we advanced in the reading his face reflected more dislike, until he told me, Is it ignorance or longing for an electoral system in the style of Western “democracies.”

I do not know, I replied, maybe they are dreaming of Havana full of posters promoting candidates for anyone elected, or wish to adopt the system of Electoral College, made in the USA, where you can rise the precedence with  less number of popular votes achieved.
