Benghazi, Libya

In downtown Benghazi, normal daily life is gradually disappearing. For the past 15 days, streets have been empty and shops closed as fighting between Islamist militias and forces loyal to former General Khalifa Haftar escalates.
Haftar’s forces continue to advance on positions held by the Benghazi Revolutionaries Shura Council and have resorted to warplane attacks in their bid to control Libya’s second largest city. Mortar shell explosions can be heard in all parts of Benghazi. Violent clashes are still ongoing in Benghazi’s east and near the local university. The university’s administration building was also burned during the exchange of fire.
Government institutions have been closed and most of the roads were blocked. Most of this footage was taken at the rush hour in areas that would normally be crowded with cars and pedestrians, such as Jamal Abdul Nasser, Tipesti, and July 23rd streets. However, after the recent events, travel in these streets became almost impossible. Residents are likely to suffer an economic recession as activity in Benghazi continues to be paralyzed.

بنغازي تكاد أن تتحول إلى مدينة أشباح

بنغازي 30 أكتوبر وتحديداً في وسط المدينة ( داون تاون ) أصبحت مظاهر الحياة تنعدم شياً فشيأً الطرق فارغة وخالية من الناس المحال التجارية مقفلة لليوم الخامس عشر علي التوالي جميع المصالح الحكومية مقفلة أغلب الطرق مقفلة بينما لا تزال الإشتباكات متواصلة بيت الجيش وقوات مجلس الشورى في عدة مناطق متقرفة من بنغازي في الأطراف الشرقية والأطراف الغربية حيث يقوم الجيش بتضييق الخناق شيأً فشيأِ عي قوات مجلس الشورى من ما دعاها إلى التراجع إلى مناطق أخرى لا تزال خارجة عن نطاق الجيش

أغلب الصور التي ألتقطناها كانت في وقت الذروة وفي أكثر الأماكن إزدحاماً في الأيام العادية مثل شارع جمال عبد الناصر وطريق تبستي ومفترق طريق تبستي وطريق 23 يوليو أي من المفترض في هذه الأوقات أن تعج هذه الطرق والشوارع بالناس والسيارات لكن بعد التطورات الأخيرة أصبح التنقل حتى إلى أقرب الأحياء شيء مستحيل بالإضافه إلى إغلاق جميع المحال التجارية والمصارف من مايؤشر إلى حالة إفلاس عام تقترب من سكان هذه المدينة إذا أستمر الوضع علي ماهو عليه

طوال اليوم تدور الاشتباكات بين قوات الجيش وعناصر من مجلس الشورى ويسمع دوي أصوات الرصاص ومدافع الهاون في مختلف أنحاء مدينة بنغازي.

والجدير بالذكر أن الإشتباكات العنيفة مارال تدور رحاها في المناطق الغربية من بنغازي وفي محيط جامعة بنغازي تحديداً التي تضررت بشكل كبير وأدت الإشتباكات إلى إحتراق المبنى الرئيسي للإدارة بالجامعة .

19 Apr 2014

80,000 people gathered to celebrate the legalization of recreational marijuana in Colorado. The annual 4/20 festival in Denver takes place at the Civic Center park in front of the Capitol, and lasts two days. As Colorado legalized the use of recreational marijuana on january 1, many people were expected at this year 4/20 festival.

The festival has been going on for years and its first goal was to support the legalization of marijuana. It was mostly attended by marijuana activists.

Although recreational marijuana is now legal in Colorado, it is still illegal to smoke it in public. But during the festival, the police allows the smoke-out to happen and is mainly there for security and to keep the smokers inside the park area. Traditionally, all attendees light up at 4.20pm.

The festival area is fenced and two stages are set up with a number of bands and kiosks in front of the Capitol building.

Spaniard conqueror Hernán Cortez Tomb
by: Pablo Perez
Jesus' Hospital, located in downtown Mexico City, a few blocks from the Zocalo, was founded by Spaniard conqueror Hernán Cortéz in 1520, in the place where there had been his first encounter with Mexican Cacique Moctezuma, to take care of the marginal people.
This It is the oldest operating hospital in America and the third largest worldwide. The hospital keeps dedicated to social assistance and is managed by a board that was headed until 1932 by descendants of Cortéz, who held the noble title of Marquis of the Oaxaca Valley.
Cortez's remains rest in a church next to the Jesus' hospital, which for a long time depended of a patronage given trough a bull awarded by Pope Clement VII. These remains went through several churches in Spain and Mexico before its current location, where were hidden for more than 100 years, for fear that their desecration. Both, the the Cortez tomb as the foundation of the hospital are unknown for most of the Mexico City inhabitants.

La Tumba de Hernán Cortéz

El Hospital de Jesús, situado en el centro de la Ciudad de México a unas cuadras del Zócalo, fue fundado por Hernán Cortéz en 1520 para la atención de la población marginada en el lugar donde había tenido lugar su primer encuentro personal con Moctezuma. Es el hospital en funcionamiento más antiguo de América y el tercero del mundo. Se sigue dedicando a la asistencia social y está gestionado por un patronato que estuvo encabezado hasta 1932 por los descendientes de Cortés, que ostentaban el título nobiliario de marqueses del Valle de Oaxaca.
En una iglesia anexa al hospital, que durante mucho tiempo y gracias a una bula papal de Clemente VII dependió del patronato, se encuentran los restos de Hernán Cortés. Estos restos pasaron por varias iglesias en España y México antes de su lugar actual y estuvieron escondidos en ese mismo templo durante más de 100 años por temor a que fueran profanados. Tanto la presencia de la tumba como la fundación del hospital por Cortés son desconocidos entre la mayor parte de los vecinos de la ciudad de México.
