Testimonio de algunos de los 40 estudiantes del curso “Experiencias Europeas: Un modelo a seguir?” del @peeudec #CátedraJeanMonnet @UEenChile @ErasmusPlus_pro @Erasmus_Project 🌎🇪🇺
Este semestre dictaremos el curso complementario “La Unión Europea” a estudiantes de muy diferentes Carreras. Cupos se llenaron en sólo unas horas. Estamos muy contentos de partir las clases la próxima semana 🇪🇺
Y mi curso electivo “Relaciones Internacionales”, que últimos años no he dictado por no tener número mínimo de inscritos, hoy lleva ya 26! (Y el máximo era 20 cupos pero decidí liberarlo y permitir que se inscriban más) Feliz!!!! #RRIILaLlevan!!🌎 #UdeC #Derecho

🧵 I spent a couple days last week in Benton County, just west of Linn County, where people are still reeling from the #derecho.

If you thought Cedar Rapids was livid about lack of media coverage, let me tell you...I’m sorry I wasn’t there sooner.

#Iowahurricane Image
Driving thru Benton County, in some areas it seemed nearly every farm was significantly damaged, horizon dotted by blue tarps, shattered trees, crumpled grain bins, flattened corn. And that’s after a solid two weeks of Herculean cleanup efforts.

#derecho2020 #iowahurricane Image
As Steve Meyer, head off Benton County Emergency Management Commission told me, the devastation is “numbing”.

At least with a tornado you drive in & out of the damage area, he says. With the #IowaDerecho ‘it just never ends’.

Is this something a #BananaRepublic strong man or a #Stalinist East European dictator would have done? Sadly, #GOP is now an empty box, filled with wishes & nostrums of #SupremeLeader. No citizen input required unless you have his ear & money. #KAG2020 msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-…
2) #Iowa now crushed by many farm disasters, some #Trump inflicted: #China grain embargo, #CornEthanol market cut by #Trump's #EPA, #Covid's hit on meat market, extreme drought & now #Derecho, which destroyed 40% of the crop. Where's the ag plank? NADA! #IaPolitics #IaSen #IaGov
3) Is this a job for @SenJoniErnst & @KimReynolds, both of whom will speak at @GOPconvention? Will they say the #Emperor has no clothes & NO commitment to #Iowa farmers after Inauguration? Or will they continue to sing his praises as #Trump walks over #Iowa? #IaPolitics #IaSen

Our city of Cedar Rapids has been destroyed by a Derecho, a term for a type of storm I’ve never heard of and never want to hear of again. Walking through the destruction I came across this lost tree. My mind keeps coming back to it days later. #CedarRapids #derecho
Some other shots from the last week...

A few quick thoughts on what I saw in Cedar Rapids today (1/?):
The destruction is literally EVERYWHERE. I’ve been other places where a natural disaster has struck, and you eventually drive out of the damage zone. Not so in #CedarRapids. #derecho
This storm spared very damn little. Huge...HUGE...probably 150 year old trees felled. Billboards blown away. The KCRG marquee in pieces. Traffic signals snapped at the base. I started seeing overturned grain bins as far out as Anamosa. A motorhome along the highway was toppled.
The historic neighborhoods near Brucemore and Bever Park seem to have gotten the worst of it. Debris still hangs over the side of the road even on major streets in the area. Some side streets are barely passable.

People are hard at work repairing this apartment complex this morning after the #derecho.

I think this neighborhood is technically over the line in Marion city limits, but on the NE side of Cedar Rapids.

Lots of work to be done in Cedar Rapids and Marion. This is Amar Drive SE. #IowaDerecho #IowaStorms
I can’t get over what the #derecho2020 did to some of these trees.
Along Amar Drive SE.

The North Dodge Hy-Vee in Iowa City is back in action, but still no power or fuel at the gas station next door. #iowa #derecho
The perishable food at the 1st Ave Hy-Vee in Cedar Rapids is pretty well picked over this morning, but they’re restocking. #IowaStorms #derecho
As of this morning, phone lines “at all Linn County facilities remain down” per a county release.

You cannot reach Linn County Emegency Mangement by phone. #IowaStorms #derecho

Hilo de 15 tweets.

1972.

Hoy, día 30 de abril, fallecía en Lausana, Suiza, CLARA CAMPOAMOR RODRÍGUEZ (n. 1888), política española, pionera de los derechos de la mujer y la militancia feminista.
Procedente de una familia modesta, estudió la carrera de Derecho al mismo tiempo que trabajaba, y se licenció en la Universidad de Madrid, en 1924.

Al tiempo que ejercía su actividad como abogada, sus inquietudes políticas le llevaron a aproximarse a los socialistas y a fundar
una Asociación Femenina Universitaria.

Con la Segunda República (1931), Clara obtuvo un escaño de diputada por Madrid en las listas del Partido Radical.

Formó parte de la Comisión constitucional, destacando en la discusión que condujo a aprobar el

Breve historia de cómo comienza la eliminación del Estado de #Derecho con un claro objetivo político: derribar la #legalidad, justicia y #democracia en #Venezuela y que, algunos de estos individuos articulan y aplauden.

#BIN Y esto es así, porque en nuestro ADN venezolano hay un componente donde reside el segundo principio heredado de la época colonial: "Dios está en el cielo, el rey está lejos y YO MANDO AQUÍ". No es nueva nuestra tragedia, es que la lucha entre civilización y barbarie continúa
#CivilizaciónContraBarbarie.-
111. #Derecho es un conjunto de normas, escritas o no, de carácter general, útiles para dirigir a la sociedad, a fin de solventar conflictos y evitar la autoinjusticia y la imposición de la "ley del más fuerte". Es decir, para evitar la barbarie...
#CivilizaciónContraBarbarie.-
112. Es decir, donde no existe el #Derecho, existe la barbarie. El Derecho es el camino establecido para tratar de encontrar esa quimera, más valiosa que #ElDorado, llamada #Justicia. Cuando se tuerce el derecho, se actúa enloquecido como #Aguirre...
