Even though the capture of birds with birdlime is prohibited by law in many countries…

We’d talked about trapping birds with birdlime, but we never had gone to the…


They had planned that hunting party for months.

The wild boars or savage hogs are plentiful in the Asturias ’mountains and their hunt is very exciting, given the boldness of the animal, its speed and unpredictability.

The last time they’d gone hunting had been six months ago and Eugenio, as…


A solution looks very difficult …

So, is there a solution to the violent gun problem in the U.S., or not?

Well, necessarily, we need to look at the political situation of the country first, since all possible solutions to the gun problem need to be implemented by politicians at…

And the American electorate will remember the role of the Republican party in it.

By now, I'm convinced Mitch McConnell, and many if not all Republicans, consider American voters stupid and gullible.

By saying something today, and saying the opposite…

Workers in the U.S, need to be unionized, like in most European countries.

Historically penetrated by the Mafia at the peak of their importance in the ’50s in America, over the years unions lost their relevance and developed a bad reputation in the United States:

Let's not exaggerate things. Through USAID, the U.S. Government historically concede resources to a multitude of Agencies worldwide, supposedly working to improve development conditions inside countries.

In that regard, the Agency "Mexicans Against Corruption and Impunity" (MACI), working in one of the most corrupt countries on Earth, appears well deserving…
