Like water for chocolate, part 2

From July to January

22 years waiting for him ._. She had the opportunity to marry John, which actually loved her maybe as much as Pedro and offered her a happy future, and she decided to live 22 years of her life hiding her love for Pedro, who actually left her in a part of the story, waiting for a moment to marry him, which actually came but the marriage never happened.

She could be happy from the beginning of the book if her mother tried to understand her, but she had to live her love life in the shadows, hidden from the public eye, and this after years of suffering even more.

Diego Torres - Color Esperanza (The colour of hope)

Lyrics in spanish:

Sé que hay en tus ojos con solo mirar
que estas cansado de andar y de andar
y caminar girando siempre en un lugar

Sé que las ventanas se pueden abrir
cambiar el aire depende de ti
te ayudara vale la pena una vez más

Saber que se puede querer que se pueda
quitarse los miedos sacarlos afuera
pintarse la cara color esperanza
tentar al futuro con el corazón

Es mejor perderse que nunca embarcar
mejor tentarse a dejar de intentar
aunque ya ves que no es tan fácil empezar

Sé que lo imposible se puede lograr
que la tristeza algún día se irá
y así será la vida cambia y cambiará

Sentirás que el alma vuela
por cantar una vez más

Vale más poder brillar
que solo buscar ver el sol

Translation to English:

The colour of hope

I know what’s in your eyes with just looking at you
(I know) you’re tired of walk and walk
and go around, turning always in the same place

I know that windows can be opened
to change the atmosphere depends on you
it’ll help you, it’s worth to try once more

To know it’s possible, to want it to happen
to get rid of our fears, to expel them
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts

It’s better to get lost than never having boarded
better to fall in temptation than to give up trying
even though you see it’s not that easy to start
I know that the impossible can be achieved
that sadness will go one day
and it’ll be like that, life will change and change

You’ll feel your soul flying
for singing one more time

To know it’s possible, to want it to happen
to get rid of our fears, to expel them
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts

To know it’s possible, to want it to happen
to get rid of our fears, to expel them
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts

It’s better being able to shine
than just trying to look at the sun

To paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts

To know it’s possible
to want it to happen
to paint our faces with the colour of hope
to tempt the future with our hearts

Like Water for Chocolate

From January to June

It is unbelievable how women used to be treated before and the importance of random things, such as who was born first, just to take advantage of that. I can’t stand how unfair the mother was with her and I think people used to have a distorted idea of how things should be. Having to take care of her mother until she dies!? A mother is supposed to want the best for her children, to look for them and help them as far as she can, but in this novel, the mother’s role is way too different from what we expect from a mother now.

I hope that Pedro and Tita finish together :)

Can you imagine anyone ever coming up wth a compelling answer to the question of why the universe exists?

I can't. I think is something we can't figure out or get in our head, perhaps because it's out of our comprehension limits, and even if we do, since we weren't there, we couldn't be sure of it, we would just believe it.

Do you think it is worth spending time thinking about questions to which there are no definite answers?

I think is quite interesting looking at what people comes out when this questions are asked, so for me, it is worth.

I've been hearing about this for some time...

UEA e-mails leak climate scientist defends his work

Professor Phil Jones has stepped down as director of the CRU
The scientist at the centre of a row over climate change research has defended himself against claims that he manipulated data.

Professor Phil Jones, former director of the Climatic Research Unit at the University of East Anglia (UEA), said his results "stand up to scrutiny".

Sceptics claim the e-mails, leaked after a UEA server was hacked into, showed data was being manipulated.

Prof Jones also disputed claims he had withheld data from a climate sceptic.

He said his 20-year-old study being questioned by sceptics had been corroborated by more recent research.

The research centre at the Norwich-based university has been under fire from climate sceptics since e-mails written over 13 years were accessed from UEA servers and posted online in November, in the run-up to the UN climate talks in Copenhagen.

The Guardian newspaper has claimed Professor Jones withheld information from sceptic Douglas Keenan, who queried data from Chinese weather stations used in a 1990 study on global warming.

Professor Jones, who continues to work at the Climatic Research Unit but has stood down as director while an investigation is carried out, said UEA had responded fully to a freedom of information request from Mr Keenan, and had supplied the temperature data and the locations of the weather stations.

The paper also used records from Australia and what was then the USSR, over which no questions had ever been raised, he said.

He said that some of the Chinese sites may have moved to warmer or cooler places, and that it was the large scale average that was the key issue.

'Very serious'

He said he was "concerned" that the latest allegations, coming soon after errors were uncovered in a 2007 report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), would undermine some aspects of climate science.

"I feel tremendously pressurised by all this but I'm trying to continue my work in the science," he said.

"I think it's very important and it's potentially very serious for the future of mankind in decades to come."

He added: "The work we do at the University of East Anglia is only a small part of (climate science), there's thousands of climate scientists around the world supporting our results.

"We are facing more and more public scrutiny, and any future work we do is going to have much greater scrutiny by our peers and by the public."


Here anoher notice, but claiming that the information was altered during the research:

Here they say that the scientists research has been altered and is a fraud:
