Trying to understand the abuse of women and find possible remedies.

What I have seen about the subject are videos showing the help signal, and the alternative of calling the police and saying some nonsense that, hopefully, will be understood and the police force will go to the victim’s address to save her.

Yes, a gesture from us can help, but whoever is on the front lines of this worldwide battle studies and knows that the vast majority of these women are isolated from groups, family, friends and without any support. …

Our home at Jardim da Saúde

My father worked long hours a day and, when he could, he rocked himself in Strauss’ waltzes; recollections of his youthful days (when he was a dancer and an excellent billiard player — not snooker! — I imagine a flirtatious; he used to arrive at morning in the baker’s cart, my grandmother told me).

Classical music, he learned at home following the saga of his sister, Elza Beatriz; she was a particularly good pianist, concert performer and composer, praised in the pages of newspapers at…

Nossa casa no Jardim da Saúde

Meu pai trabalhava muitas horas por dia e, quando podia, se embalava nas valsas de Strauss (lembranças de seus dias de mocidade, em que foi um bailador e exímio jogador de bilhar — não sinuca! — Imagino que um namorador; só chegava em casa na carrocinha do padeiro, contava minha avó).

Música erudita, aprendeu em casa acompanhando a saga da irmã, Elza Beatriz, sob tirânica vigilância da mãe; ela foi muito boa pianista, concertista e compositora, elogiada e louvada nas páginas de jornais da época.

A música clássica me foi apresentada por meu querido Tio Geraldo quando eu, pequenino, ia…

Here, in Brazil, Canabidiol Prati-Donaduzzi is the first Brazilian medicine based on Cannabis that had its production authorized by the National Health Surveillance Agency (Anvisa).

Research on the benefits of CBD is coordinated by the Hospital das Clínicas of the University of São Paulo (Campus Ribeirão Preto).

Doctors prescribe it for the illnesses you mention in your text and, therefore, its sale is released with a specific prescription.

There are countless reports of its effectiveness:

Me and my “Fusca” — Ilustration by Claudia Ricci

I often receive messages − and I thank for that to whom has sent − about the wonders of the science and technology, of the past achievements, which were crushed and abandoned under the weight of government conveniences or criminal actions by multinational companies or organizations. It is always good to know all the theories and to be able to do my investigations, with which I boost my neurons in research, studies, and learning.

We all tend to believe in conspiracy theories when we do not have enough knowledge or reasonable answers on the subject, but we want the theory…


Tião, Sebastião Maria Rosalvinho da Silva, a rube from the boondocks of the interior of São Paulo, stocky, but muscular, young in his twenty-many years, wrinkles carved by the weedding at the sun, hands callused by the hoe and sickle, shrewdness and attention to see dangerous snakes and animals, avoiding ticks, imagining means and traps,

Coping with Land of Samurai’s subtleness

My partners thought it was crazy and waste of time and money to open a branch in Japan, already a steel giant at that time, a steel exporter to almost the entire world, including Brazil.

Death Row

It was Friday on a hot spring night; Juvenal didn’t show up at the office all week. Everyone commented that two weeks ago he looked very strange, with his head down, he didn’t speak; he who always animated the mornings with his jokes, stories, served everyone with cordiality, was a key part of Happy Hour.

I called his cell phone several times “The phone is off or out of range”; no one answered.

The day before yesterday, when I called his landline, the operator said the number was out of service!

Before going up to his apartment, I passed by…

It was the bird’s poop right in the middle of my bald spot.
