How little we know of what there is to know. I wish that I were going to live a long time instead of going to die today because I have learned much about life in these four days; more, I think than in all other time. I’d like to be an old man to really know. I wonder if you keep on learning or if there is only a certain amount each man can understand. I thought I knew so many things that I know nothing of. I wish there was more time.

O texto a seguir relata a história do pão.
Our Daily Bread
 Bread is the oldest food known to mankind. The trade of the baker is one of the oldest crafts in the world.
 Loaves and rolls have been found in ancient Egyptian tombs. In the British Museum’s Egyptian galleries you can see actual loaves which were made and baked over 5,000 years ago.
 Bread is mentioned in the Bible many times. In Old Testament times, all the evidence points to the fact that bread-making, preparing the grain, making the bread and baking it, was the women’s work.
 Nowadays, bread is perhaps the most important item in our diet. It provides us with more energy value, more protein, more iron and more vitamin B1 than any other basic food.
 So, the next time you are about to bite into some fresh bread, remember you have a slice of history in your hand.

'Is it your opinion, Winston, that the past has real existence?’ [...] O'Brien smiled faintly. ‘I will put it more precisely. Does the past exist concretely, in space? Is there somewhere or other a place, a world of solid objects, where the past is still happening?
'Then where does the past exist, if at all?'
'In records. It is written down.'
'In records. And –– ––?'
'In the mind. In human memories.'
'In memory. Very well, then. We, the Party, control all records, and we control all memories. Then we control the past, do we not?'

New Studies Link Cell Phone Radiation with Cancer
Researchers call for greater caution, but skeptics say the evidence from rat studies is not convincing By Charles Schmidt
Does cell phone radiation cause cancer? New studies show a correlation in lab rats, but the evidence may not resolve ongoing debates over causality or whether any effects arise in people.
The ionizing radiation given off by sources such as x-ray machines and the sun boosts cancer risk by shredding molecules in the body. But the nonionizing radio-frequency (RF) radiation that cell phones and other wireless devices emit has just one known biological effect: an ability to heat tissue by exciting its molecules. Still, evidence advanced by the studies shows prolonged exposure to even very low levels of RF radiation, perhaps by mechanisms other than heating that remain unknown, makes rats uniquely prone to a rare tumor called a schwannoma, which affects a type of neuron (or nerve cell) called a Schwann cell.

Missing Out: In Praise of the Unlived Life is Adam Phillips's 17th book and is a characteristic blend of literary criticism and philosophical reflection packaged around a central idea. The theme here is missed opportunities, roads not taken, alternative versions of our lives and ourselves, all of which, Phillips argues, exert a powerful hold over our imaginations. Using a series of examples and close readings of authors including Philip Larkin and Shakespeare, the book suggests that a broader understanding of life's inevitable disappointments and thwarted desires can enable us to live fuller, richer lives. Good things come to those who wait.
Does he see himself as a champion of frustration? “I'm not on the side of frustration exactly, so much as the idea that one has to be able to bear frustration in order for satisfaction to be realistic. I'm interested in how the culture of consumer capitalism depends on the idea that we can't bear frustration, so that every time we feel a bit restless or bored or irritable, we eat, or we shop.” .

Brazil buys 34 German tanks in security drive
ahead of World
By Jeevan Vasagar, Berlin
3:08PM BST 12 Apr 2013 in
 Brazil is buying 34 German anti-aircraft tanks as it beefs up security ahead of hosting the World Cup, the 2016 Olympic Games, and a papal visit.
 The first consignment of Flakpanzer Gepard tanks is due to arrive in the South American country by June. The armour, which has been phased out by the German military in favour of missile systems, is equipped with two 35mm guns.
 Brazil is strengthening internal security and counter-terrorism measures ahead of the World Cup next year and the Olympic Games in 2016.
 Ahead of the sporting events, Pope Francis, the first Latin American head of th Catholic church, is due to visit Rio de Janeiro in July. He will say mass at Copacabana beach, pray at the Christ the Redeemer statue, and attend a Catholic youth festival.
 The Brazilian army officer in command of anti-aircraft artillery, General Marcio Heise, told the G1 news service that the first eight Gepards would arrive in June. They will be deployed in the Brazilian capital, Brasilia, where the Confederations Cup - a prelude to the World Cup - kicks off on June 15, and in Rio de Janeiro, where the tournament ends on June 30, and also for the papal visit.
 Brazil has spent little on defence in recent decades but is now seeking to modernize its armed forces. The country's defence ministry recently announced that it was purchasing surface-to-air missile and artillery batteries from Russia. Brazil is also building five submarines in partnership with France, and plans to replaces its ageing air force.
 The country's air force is thought to be the largest in Latin America, and its tasks include surveillance of the Amazon rainforest, to curb drug trafficking and illegal logging.
 Germany is one of the world's five biggest exporters of arms. Its exports make up 7 percent of the global total, according to the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
