Having recently given us three “Cars” films of diminishing interest and the well-intentioned but lackluster “Good Dinosaur,” Pixar has turned its Luxo lamp to illuminate novel new material in “Coco.” It’s the animation factory’s first musical and its initial exploration of multicultural material (unless you count the French cuisine of “Ratatouille,” which I don’t).

This love letter to Mexican traditions and Latino arts is welcome, innovative in using bits of Spanish without subtitles and, frankly, overdue. It sounds and looks great, and the Pixar “brain trust” of John Lasseter, Andrew Stanton and Pete Docter have returned to creating a cartoon that isn’t just for kids. While it doesn’t rise to the level of “Up,” it reaches higher than much we’ve seen from the studio lately.

La Revolución Mexicana normalmente es representada por tres personajes que, si bien no triunfaron ni perseguían los mismos fines, se han convertido en símbolos de la lucha revolucionaria: el apóstol de la democracia Francisco I. Madero, el guerrero Francisco Villa, y Emiliano Zapata, el mesiánico defensor de los campesinos. Octavio Paz describió estas diferencias claramente con estas palabras:

Se las tumbaron
De manera sorpresiva, la elección del municipio de Emiliano Zapata que ganó el candidato de Morena, fue anulada por el Tribunal Electoral del Poder Judicial de la Federación de la sala Xalapa, a cargo de los magistrados Adín Antonio de León Gálvez y Juan Manuel Sánchez Macías, para quienes el líder estatal de morena, Manuel Huerta, y la diputada Rocío Nahle, aseguran que pedirá juicio político, aunque en realidad –si se pudiera- querrían pedir que ardan en una hoguera con leña verde.
Para darnos una idea de la calidad moral de estos magistrados, recordemos que Juan Manuel Sánchez Macías, fue quién en un foro disertó que las mujeres deben llegar a los cargos públicos por sus capacidades y no porque “estén bien buenas y tengan las nalgas exquisitas”… ¿será que al magistrado le agradan más los glúteos boleados de los candidatos perdedores?

They believed that by cutting his hands off, they would be able to provide proof of his death, whilst by disposing of his body in such a crude way, they would not allow his grave to become a shrine, and therefore extinguish the memory and ideas of Che Guevara.

How wrong they were!

I first learnt of Che Guevara in the mid-80s when we used to visit an older comrade who worked for the Transport and General Workers’ Union.

We would discuss the fate of the revolution while listening to jazz, and plan public acts of defiance and organising the youth.

Modern India warms to Mahatma Gandhi’s spartan retreat

AHMEDABAD, India — Peering inside the cottages at Mahatma Gandhi’s retreat on the banks of the Sabarmati River, visitors find spartan spaces with only the most essential furniture — a cot, perhaps, or a desk. Material possessions mattered little to the pacifist Indian independence leader.

The cottages, made of brick and wood, served as residences, meditation centers, conference halls and dining rooms for Gandhi and his followers. But there is very little to suggest that this was the epicenter of India’s freedom movement for nearly 30 years.

    La camioneta S-10 placas YP-8854-B que transitaba sobre la 41 al momento de ser impactada giró 180 grados y quedó en sentido opuesto al que circulaba.

    Al lugar llegaron agentes de la Secretaria de Seguridad Pública quienes se hicieron cargo del accidente, a pesar de lo aparatoso no se registraron lesionados.

    También llegaron representantes de las aseguradoras de ambos vehículos para solucionar el accidente. Ernesto Pinzón Franco
