De mai multe zile se discută despre invazia Europei pe care o realizează grupuri de persoane care s-au născut şi au trăit mai mulţi ani în state care au ca principale caracteristici slaba forţă a statului de drept, slaba competitivitate economică, regimuri politice dictatoriale sau autoritare, sisteme slabe de educaţie şi o destul de mare fervoare religioasă.

today’s holiday: Fiestas Patrias


Fiestas Patrias

Fiestas Patrias is the national two-day holiday in Chile celebrating Independence Day, September 18, and Army Day, September 19. In the days preceding the holiday, fondas (fairs) pop up throughout Chile, and it is a popular time for Chilean rodeo. Huasos (cowboys) compete against one another by attempting to pin a calf against the wall of the medialuna, or arena, with their horse, and are awarded points based on which part of the horse is touching the calf. Because September marks the beginning of spring in Chile, Fiestas Patrias is also a popular occasion for kite flying. More… Discuss

Health: Olive Oil


Olive Oil

Traditionally, olive oil, a yellow to greenish vegetable oil, was produced by crushing olives in mortars or beam presses. Modern processing involves mixing a ground olive paste with water, and extracting the oil using a centrifuge.
