West Mifflin man takes down Nazi flag, apologizes to borough

Even before the article loaded I knew it would be a "I'm sorry that you felt that way," non-apology. He knew exactly what turmoil it would cause, that was the point.

I've always felt a little bad for Dolores Barrios. This admittedly kind of weird-looking lady who is interested in UFOs goes to a conference in 1954 with her weird-looking friends only to have weirdos badger them and take photos to dissect for the rest of time as to whether or not they're Venusians.






Quote
At the end of the first day there was some commotion when the audience noticed the presence of two men and a woman with an exotic and very peculiar appearance. The rumor started that they were disguised Venusian humanoids. Those that Adamski had talked about a few hours before.
One of the men used glasses. The three were white-skinned and the woman had long blond hair. So far, no big deal. They could be just weird looking ordinary people. Then one of the attendees asked them, without much embarrassment:
"Are you or are you not Venusians?" The woman, smiling, calmly replied. "No". The following dialogue:

"- Why are you here?
- Because we are interested in this subject.
- Do you believe in flying saucers?
- Yes.
- Is it true that, as Mr. Adamski says, that they come from Venus?
- Yes. They are from Venus."

The Brazilian journalist, João Martins, from the extinct magazine, "O Cruzeiro" was also present. He has interviewed them and according to his statement, the woman said she was called Dolores Barrios and claimed she was a dresses designer. She also said the names of her friends were Donald Morand and Bill Jackmart, both supposed musicians. At last she said they lived in Manhattan Beach, California. For the rest of the conference the three became isolated from the audience and didn’t talk with the other attendees.
In the following day, at the end of the meeting, the strange visitors let themselves be photographed. Martins has surprised Dolores using a flash in his camera, what scared her, that immediately ran to the forest, followed by her friends. Few moments later, a flying saucer was seen rocketing upwards, but no one was able to capture a photo.
It seems the only photos of Dolores and his buddies, were taken by João Martins and definitely you can't find much about them in the internet. Actually, you can't find ANYTHING about them. There's no other imagery along the years, none information about their jobs, no personal references, nothing, nada, zimp, zero.

Never heard of it. But we have a long history with UFOs peppered by some particularly weird cases such as the Varginha incident and the Lead Masks Case, and with attention drawn of Kardecist circles. I know very few people that would give attention to this stuff, but one of them is my aunt's ex-brother-in-law, who swears to have seen a UFO, and another is an active Wikipedia editor who makes fascinating dossiers on Portuguese Wiki.

Yeah, apparently certain people are convinced she and the others have a forehead ridge and that they're eyes are too big for their faces or something. I'm not seeing it though lol.

Why Ukraine is Not Czechoslovakia

Not Czechoslovakia
Posted on March 28, 2014
Map of Czechoslovakia in 1980, showing the Czech Socialist Republic and the Slovak Socialist Republic.
Map of the former Czechoslovakia in 1980, showing the Czech Socialist Republic and the Slovak Socialist Republic.

With regard to Ukraine’s social and cultural divisions, commentators have rushed to speculate that the country may very well split into even East and West halves in the manner of Czechoslovakia in 1993. However, such commentaries fail to understand the genuine dynamics of Ukraine today or indeed, the dynamics of the historical entity of Czechoslovakia.

Primarily, throughout their history, the Czechs and the Slovaks viewed themselves as two distinct, though closely related, ethnic groups who speak two distinct, though mutually intelligible West Slavic languages. During the communist era and specifically beginning in 1969, Czechoslovakia existed as a federation comprised of two states: the Czech Socialist Republic and the Slovak Socialist Republic. With the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, this internal administrative boundary, defined by geography, history, and language, became an international boundary.

By contrast, while there are strong regional divisions within Ukraine, the vast majority of the people in the country self-identify as “Ukrainians.” The only exceptions to this would be the Carpatho-Ukrainians (also known as the Carpathian Ruthenians or Rusyns) of the far-west Zakarpattia Oblast who speak their own distinct East Slavic language, and ethnic minorities like Russians, Romanians, Belarusians, Bulgarians, Hungarians, Poles, Jews, Armenians, Greeks, and others.

Therefore, if the people in Lviv have anything in common with the people of Donetsk, it is that the majority of the population still self-identifies as being ethnic Ukrainian. Certainly, the concept of what it means to be Ukrainian would vary from Lviv to Donetsk. At the end of the day though, neither would identify as being part of a “Galician” or “Donbasian” ethnic group. They would regard themselves as “Ukrainians.”

Further complicating the overly-simplistic “East” vs. “West” narrative is the added presence of Central Ukraine. As I have reported in my earlier analysis, the people here are not strictly Ukrainian or Russian speakers. Rather, they speak Surzhyk, a mixed Russian-Ukrainian language, in the countryside and Russian in urban areas. Consequently, it is Central Ukraine that forms the point at which the Ukrainian-speaking Western Ukraine gradually blends into the Russian-speaking East. Politically, the people here are more moderate and navigate between the two extremes of Lviv and Donetsk. In some respects, the region acts much like a “swing state” in the American Midwest.

Further, there are also interesting cases in oblasts like Sumy and Kirovohrad. In both of these regions Russian is linguistically dominant, but politically, historically, and socially these regions are considered part of Central Ukraine. Western commentators who impose strict East-West divides onto Ukraine often include Sumy and Kirovohrad in the “West” simply because the Central Ukrainian oblasts have been voting for more pro-Western politicians since the 2004 Orange Revolution. In fact, in the case of regions like Kirovohrad, the pro-Western candidate just happened to get a slight electoral edge over their pro-Moscow competitor. Yet to define the people of Central Ukraine as being definitively part of Western Ukraine would be an oversimplification and would ignore the historical fact that the people of Central Ukraine have been largely part of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union for the bulk of their modern history.

Thus, unlike the case of the Czechs and Slovaks in the former Czechoslovakia, the divide between what is “Eastern Ukraine” and what is “Western Ukraine” is unclear. This makes any effort at partitioning Ukraine into precise “East” and “West” halves impossible, thus ruling out any sort of “Velvet Divorce” Czechoslovak-style breakup. It also makes the overall situation in Ukraine potentially more dangerous, especially since the government in Kiev has been seized by mostly West Ukrainian activists. Indeed, if one observes the composition of the current Yatsenyuk government, one will find a preponderance of individuals from all political strands (from the pro-EU liberals to the far-right fascists) who can trace their origins back to the oblasts of Western Ukraine.

Dear Pietro
I read your articles with great interest. They are well documented and objective.In my opinion you are doing very good job to explain the people in the West complicated situation in Ukraine. But as regards resemblances with Czechoslovakia you forgot about one main thing. Czechoslovakia was made by the people who mostly wanted to be together. They were also endangered together by common enemies – Germans and Hungarians.
Problems of Ukraine are much more complicated. Contemporary Ukraine was built on mixed results of Polish-Ukrainian war 1918 – 1919, Polish – Soviet war in 1920, Soviet’s aggression in 1939, German occupation in 1941, extermination of Jews, ethnic cleanses of Poles in 1943 and 1944 and their coerced emigration and at the end Soviet occupation which imposed Soviet rule all over the country and migration of Soviet people of different nationalities to Ukraine. People fought each other in different armies and died for different causes. It was rather difficult to find one common cause of Ukrainian people. The history makes the nations but Ukrainians had not much common history. The border between two parts of Ukraine is still on the line which for many years was the border of Kingdom of Poland. Even if the people call themselves Ukrainians they mean something different by that. So I do not think that only the language differences are important in Ukrainian divisions and crisis. One may find in Europe other nations speaking different languages in one country, like Irish or Swiss. Problem of Ukraine is that the Ukrainians must live together in the country about which they think and dream differently. Other and most serious problem is Ukraine’s eastern neighbour. Russian never treated Ukraine as a “real” state. It is close resemblance to Poland – Soviet Union never believed that Poland could be independent state until we made it. But before, was German and Soviet pact and invasion in 1939. Thanks God Ukraine is in the better situation because it has only friendly neighbours on their western borders.

Wow, in São Paulo? That's the last place in the world I'd expect to see toucans.

I saw them in the countryside of the state of São Paulo, not in the city.

But it is not impossible do see toucans near the Serra da Cantareira, in the north part of the city, there are monkeys there so I imagine that there are tucanos as well.

There is a green belt around the city, you wont see a toucan in Paulista avenue, but it is possible to find them in the outskirts, in the indigenous areas (yes there are 3 indigenous areas, guarani mbyá, in forest preservation zones), near the dams and in the extreme south of the city where there still exists small farms with japanese settlers.

Oh, awesome, had no idea! I always wanted to visit an indigenous community, but Rio was the first (maybe the only? IDK.) state to kill off all natives (although there's a tiny community of urbanised Amerindian immigrants, and a community in Penedo dubiously claiming to be bugre), so I haven't gotten this opportunity yet. BTW, there's an Orthodox Native American village in Pernambuco, in case you didn't know. 3 hours away from Recife, but still near the coastline.

It was aimed at in-depth Pokemon fans like me, don't worry.

The Pokemon games can be divided up into generations. Generation 1 was the first release- Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow- running from 1995 to 2000. Generation 4 consisted of Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heartgold and Soulsilver, and ran from 2006 to 2011. The games are currently on Generation 7, by the way.

Game Freak's main character designer for the series is Ken Sugimori. Over time his art style has evolved from rather "simplistic" (likely not the right word) designs like Charizard is one of its first depictions:



To Garchomp in Gen 4:



See the slight differences in the details of the character designs? The image flips that on it's head.

You can also see it in the way Sugimori has drawn instances of the same Pokemon over the years.

Pikachu went on a diet, for example.

Mewtwo has probably been the most drastic change. In Gen 1 he looked like the true genetic monstrosity that he is in the lore.

Or maybe I only think that way because Mewtwo is likely partially based on Giegue from the NES game Mother (which had a lot of the same design team as Pokemon, though not Sugimori AFAIK) and I miss that aspect of the reference being clearer.



Alright, fanboy rant over. Sorry lol!

To something more gracile and subdued (and a bit more boring imo).



You clearly don't know any furries.

lol, no I've met a few. Something tells me Sugimori actually is one a little at least a little. We all should have seen it beginning with Miltank...

yes there are 3 indigenous areas, guarani mbyá, in forest preservation zones
Oh, awesome, had no idea! I always wanted to visit an indigenous community, but Rio was the first (maybe the only? IDK.) state to kill off all natives (although there's a tiny community of urbanised Amerindian immigrants, and a community in Penedo dubiously claiming to be bugre), so I haven't gotten this opportunity yet. BTW, there's an Orthodox Native American village in Pernambuco, in case you didn't know. 3 hours away from Recife, but still near the coastline.




That's nice, I had no idea about that. Are they of a single ethnicity or one of those mixed groups formed of scatered indigenous groups put in the same place. FUNAI sometimes blocks any kind of religious proselitism or evangelism among indigenous.

You can also see it in the way Sugimori has drawn instances of the same Pokemon over the years.

Pikachu went on a diet, for example.

No idea, but they have had internet since we got there, so I doubt FUNAI has anything to do with it since they seem to find it cute to preserve Native Americans like they're pre-historical children. Le bon sauvage.

Huh. Weird. Well, you can do it manually, [ img ] image url [ /img ] without the spaces.

It has to be an image you can find online, though. This site doesn't do file attachments to posts, unlike some forums.

Yeah, you can attach photos. Just click the "attachments and other options" button at the bottom.

lol, I remember that thread. Man, I was a schlemiel back then... For some reason I always remember the text of that meme as being a lot harsher (call it a Pokemandela Effect).

Can't say I regret any of the fanboying, other than being kind of a jerk to orthonorm and being an obnoxious Brony-vangelical, for which I apologize (haven't watched the show in years, though still not really opposed to it). Never did get back to Mike about a Smogon battle, I hope he doesn't think I was avoiding him or something. I was just too lazy to sign up for it and make a team.


Oh and, fight me :p
