ESTO LO ENVÍA COPARMEX A LOS TRABAJADORES DE MÉXICO

Cfr. Desplegado carta Coparmex

EL COVID-19 AMENAZA TENER UN IMPACTO ALTO EN PÉRDIDA DE EMPLEOS Y CIERRE DE EMPRESAS. ES TIEMPO DE CONVOCAR A NUESTRAS AUTORIDADES A SALVAR EL EMPLEO DE MILLONES DE MEXICANOS, A VELAR POR EL INGRESO DE LAS FAMILIAS Y A CUIDAR DE LAS EMPRESAS QUE SON SUSTENTO ECONÓMICO DE MÉXICO.

Pido a cada destinatario que reenvíe este mensaje de Whatsapp a un mínimo de veinte personas de su lista de contactos, y a la vez pedir a cada uno de ellos, realizar lo mismo.

Hagamos que circule este mensaje por todo México y que llegue a Palacio Nacional, requiriendo al Presidente López Obrador adoptar la propuesta SALARIO SOLIDARIO que impulsa la Coparmex para proteger el ingreso de millones de familias mexicanas, y evitar la muerte de miles de empresas.

oOo

MÉXICO NOS NECESITA. La crisis económica derivada del COVID-19 nos pone a prueba para salvar millones de empleos, conservar sueldos y prestaciones, y evitar la desaparición y debilitamiento de las empresas que son fuente de trabajo y motor económico.

Ésta no será una tarea sencilla, TRABAJADORES Y EMPRESARIOS debemos mantenernos firmes en:

1. Permanecer unidos. No hay duda que algunos gobernantes pretenden dividirnos y romper nuestra alianza. No podemos permitirlo.

2. Promover que el gobierno federal implemente a la brevedad el SALARIO SOLIDARIO. Lo que se propone es que el gobierno autorice ocupar recursos extraordinarios de la Federación – es decir, dinero de los impuestos que todos pagamos – para cubrir una parte de los sueldos en este periodo de emergencia.

3. Impulsar la reactivación de la economía. Las empresas consideradas “no esenciales” llevan más de 30 días sin operación ni ventas; no hay ahorro ni bienes que aguanten. El gobierno debe reactivarlas paulatinamente sin descuidar las medidas de cuidado para la salud.

4. Construir un GRAN ACUERDO NACIONAL que facilite alcanzar consensos entre trabajadores, empresarios y autoridades, y que nos permita salir adelante.

En esta crisis, la MAYOR PREOCUPACIÓN Y PRIORIDAD ES CONSERVAR TU EMPLEO Y EL INGRESO DE TU FAMILIA. Convoquemos a las autoridades a trabajar en equipo, A ADOPTAR EL SALARIO SOLIDARIO, a abrirnos paso frente al virus y a seguir construyendo un MÉXICO GANADOR.

oOo

Si estás de acuerdo con lo expuesto ALZA LA VOZ Y REENVÍA ESTE MENSAJE.

Por favor mantengamos este mensaje circulando hasta que llegue a su destino.

EL TIEMPO PARA SALVAR MILLONES DE EMPLEOS Y MILES DE EMPRESAS ES AHORA… HAGÁMOSLO POR TODOS LOS TRABAJADORES DE MÉXICO Y SUS FAMILIAS.

ACTUEMOS YA.

THIS IS SENT BY COPARMEX TO WORKERS IN MEXICO

Cf. Unfolded letter Coparmex

COVID-19 THREATENS TO HAVE A HIGH IMPACT ON LOSS OF JOBS AND CLOSURE OF BUSINESSES. IT’S TIME TO CALL OUR AUTHORITIES TO SAVE THE EMPLOYMENT OF MILLIONS OF MEXICANS, TO LOOK AFTER THE INCOME OF FAMILIES AND TO TAKE CARE OF THE COMPANIES THAT ARE MEXICO’S ECONOMIC SUPPORT.

I ask each recipient to forward this WhatsApp message to a minimum of twenty people on their contact list, and at the same time ask each of them to do the same.

Let us circulate this message throughout Mexico and reach the National Palace, requiring President López Obrador to adopt the SOLIDARITY SALARY proposal promoted by Coparmex to protect the income of millions of Mexican families, and prevent the death of thousands of companies.

ooo

MEXICO NEEDS US. The economic crisis derived from COVID-19 tests us to save millions of jobs, keep wages and benefits, and avoid the disappearance and weakening of companies that are a source of work and an economic engine.

This will not be an easy task, WORKERS AND ENTREPRENEURS we must remain firm in:

1. Stay together. There is no doubt that some rulers intend to divide us and break our alliance. We cannot allow it.

2. Promote that the federal government implements the SOLIDARY SALARY as soon as possible. What is proposed is that the government authorize the use of extraordinary resources of the Federation – that is, tax money that we all pay – to cover part of the salaries in this period of emergency.

3. Promote the revival of the economy. Companies considered “non-essential” have been without operation or sales for more than 30 days; There are no savings or assets to endure. The government should gradually reactivate them without neglecting health care measures.

4. Build a GREAT NATIONAL AGREEMENT that facilitates reaching consensus among workers, employers and authorities, and that allows us to move forward.

In this crisis, THE BIGGEST CONCERN AND PRIORITY IS TO KEEP YOUR JOB AND THE INCOME OF YOUR FAMILY. Let’s call the authorities to work as a team, TO ADOPT THE SOLIDARITY SALARY, to make way for the virus and to continue building a WINNING MEXICO.

ooo

If you agree with the above, RAISE YOUR VOICE AND FORWARD THIS MESSAGE.

Please keep this message circulating until you reach your destination.

THE TIME TO SAVE MILLIONS OF JOBS AND THOUSANDS OF COMPANIES IS NOW… LET’S DO IT FOR ALL THE WORKERS OF MEXICO AND THEIR FAMILIES.

LET’S ACT NOW.

Why Wear Sunglasses?

Well-made sunglasses do more than make you look like a movie star. They can protect your eyes from many problems, including those caused by the sun’s harmful rays.

The American Optometric Association says you should always don sunglasses during the daylight hours because:

They protect your eyes against the sun’s UV rays, which could otherwise lead to cataracts.
They protect against “blue light” from the solar spectrum, which could increase your risk of macular degeneration.
They lead to improved and more comfortable vision from not having to squint.
They can make it easier to adapt to darkness. Exposure to bright light can make it more difficult to adjust to driving at night.

Elimination of Dangerous Glare

Sunglasses cut down on harmful glare which can make driving or daily tasks difficult and dangerous. Along with a lack of clarity, glare can distract you and be an annoyance. Sunglasses have additionally been proven to make driving a safer activity!

Better Clarity

Proper lenses can go a long way in a pair of sunnies, as they can enhance your environment’s clarity. We have a wide array of lenses with varying optical quality to choose from that can sharpen your outdoor experience.

Reduction of Vision Damage

Sunglasses with proper protection and specifications can benefit your eye’s health tremendously as they protect your eye’s against damage caused by the sun. If sunglasses are adopted at an early age the reduction of vision damage can be tremendous! Additionally, anyone who has had corrective surgery should be actively protecting their eyes as they are more susceptible to the sun’s harmful elements.

Helps improve function of tasks such as driving, outdoor activities, etc.

You can also see an improvement in performance for outdoor activities such as fishing, golf, or driving with a proper pair of sunglasses. They cut down glare on the water, protect your eyes, and make the pastimes more enjoyable.

Sunglasses in the Winter

It is a little known fact that sunglasses are increasingly important to wear in the winter time. This is a result of the large amount of glare that snow creates as the sun’s light bounces off it. Making driving and ordinary tasks outside more difficult.

Style Aspect! Personalize your look to match your personality

Finally, you can not forget about the style aspect of sunglasses! People for many years have made sunnies apart of their personal style from Kurt Cobain’s white Christian Roth’s, Corey Hart’s famous black Wayfarer style sunglasses, Mick Jaggers Vuarnet’s, and Kim Kardashian’s Smoke and Mirrors! Personalization continues to this day as style evolves.

Day of the Dead (Día de los Muertos)

The Day of the Dead (el Día de los Muertos), is a Mexican holiday where families welcome back the souls of their deceased relatives for a brief reunion that includes food, drink and celebration. A blend of Mesoamerican ritual, European religion and Spanish culture, the holiday is celebrated each year from October 31- November 2. While October 31 is Halloween, November 1 is “el Dia de los innocents,” or the day of the children, and All Saints Day. November 2 is All Souls Day or the Day of the Dead. According to tradition, the gates of heaven are opened at midnight on October 31 and the spirits of children can rejoin their families for 24 hours. The spirits of adults can do the same on November 2

Origins of Day of the Dead

The roots of the Day of the Dead, celebrated in contemporary Mexico and among those of Mexican heritage in the United States and around the world, go back some 3,000 years, to the rituals honoring the dead in pre-Columbian Mesoamerica. The Aztecs and other Nahua people living in what is now central Mexico held a cyclical view of the universe, and saw death as an integral, ever-present part of life.

Upon dying, a person was believed to travel to Chicunamictlán, the Land of the Dead. Only after getting through nine challenging levels, a journey of several years, could the person’s soul finally reach Mictlán, the final resting place. In Nahua rituals honoring the dead, traditionally held in August, family members provided food, water and tools to aid the deceased in this difficult journey. This inspired the contemporary Day of the Dead practice in which people leave food or other offerings on their loved ones’ graves, or set them out on makeshift altars called ofrendas in their homes.

Day of the Dead vs. All Souls Day

In ancient Europe, pagan celebrations of the dead also took place in the fall, and consisted of bonfires, dancing and feasting. Some of these customs survived even after the rise of the Roman Catholic Church, which (unofficially) adopted them into their celebrations of two minor Catholic holidays, All Saints Day and All Souls Day, celebrated on the first two days of November.

In medieval Spain, people would bring bring wine and pan de ánimas (spirit bread) to the graves of their loved ones on All Souls Day; they would also cover graves with flowers and light candles to illuminate the dead souls’ way back to their homes on Earth. In the 16th century, Spanish conquistadores brought such traditions with them to the New World, along with a darker view of death influenced by the devastation of the bubonic plague.

How Is the Day of the Dead Celebrated?

El Día de los Muertos is not, as is commonly thought, a Mexican version of Halloween, though the two holidays do share some traditions, including costumes and parades. On the Day of the Dead, it’s believed that the border between the spirit world and the real world dissolve. During this brief period, the souls of the dead awaken and return to the living world to feast, drink, dance and play music with their loved ones. In turn, the living family members treat the deceased as honored guests in their celebrations, and leave the deceased’s favorite foods and other offerings at gravesites or on the ofrendas built in their homes. Ofrendas can be decorated with candles, bright marigolds called cempasuchil and red cock’s combs alongside food like stacks of tortillas and fruit.

The most prominent symbols related to the Day of the Dead are calacas (skeletons) and calaveras (skulls). In the early 19th century, the printer and cartoonist José Guadalupe Posada reenvisioned Mictecacíhuatl, the Aztec goddess of the underworld, as a female skeleton known as La Calavera Catrina, now the most recognizable Day of the Dead icon.

During contemporary Day of the Dead festivities, people commonly wear skull masks and eat sugar candy molded into the shape of skulls. The pan de ánimas of All Souls Day rituals in Spain is reflected in pan de muerto, the traditional sweet baked good of Day of the Dead celebrations today. Other food and drink associated with the holiday, but consumed year-round as well, include spicy dark chocolate and the corn-based liquor called atole. You can wish someone a happy Day of the Dead by saying, “Feliz día de los Muertos.”

Movies Featuring Day of the Dead

Traditionally, the Day of the Dead was celebrated largely in the more rural, indigenous areas of Mexico, but starting in the 1980s it began spreading into the cities. UNESCO reflected growing awareness of the holiday in 2008, when it added Mexico’s “indigenous festivity dedicated to the dead” to its list of Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

In recent years, the tradition has developed even more due to its visibility in pop culture and its growing popularity in the United States, where more than 36 million people identified as being of partial or full Mexican ancestry as of 2016, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Inspired by the 2015 James Bond movie Spectre, which featured a large Day of the Dead parade, Mexico City held its first-ever parade for the holiday in 2016. In 2017, a number of major U.S. cities, including Chicago, Los Angeles, San Antonio and Fort Lauderdale, held Day of the Dead parades. That November, Disney and Pixar released the blockbuster animated hit Coco, a $175 million homage to the Mexican tradition in which a young boy is transported to the Land of the Dead and meets up with his long-lost ancestors.

Though the particular customs and scale of Day of the Dead celebrations continue to evolve, the heart of the holiday has remained the same over thousands of years. It’s an occasion for remembering and celebrating those who have passed on from this world, while at the same time portraying death in a more positive light, as a natural part of the human experience.

History of the BisBee Tournament

Bisbee’s Black & Blue Tournaments have been taking place in the Los Cabos region of the Baja Peninsula in Mexico for over 30 years. The Bisbee’s are currently producing three tournaments – Bisbee’s East Cape Offshore in Buenavista which takes place each July, and the Los Cabos Offshore Charity Tournament and Black & Blue Marlin Tournament which take place every October in Cabo San Lucas.

Started in 1981 by Bob Bisbee, the Black & Blue Marlin Tournament has grown from six teams with a purse of $10,000 to more than 150 teams with millions of dollars on the line. In 2006 the Black & Blue had its biggest overall cash payout of $4,165,960. This was, and remains, the largest payout in sportfishing history.

In 2000 Bisbee’s expanded to the east side of the Baja California Sur peninsula with the East Cape Offshore Tournament in Buenavista. In addition to marlin, this tournament included dorado and tuna and became so popular that a third event with the same format was started in 2002 – the Los Cabos Offshore Tournament.

Over the years each tournament has developed its own personality with the East Cape Offshore being a laid back “Cabo fishing as it used to be” type of event, the Los Cabos which takes place just days before the Black & Blue and nick-named the “Little Bisbee’s”, is a very social event full of comraderie where friends can meet, swap stories and get in a few days of fishing before the “Big Show”.

The last tournament in the series, Bisbee’s Black & Blue Marlin Tournament, is hard to describe if you’ve never been there. It’s five days of organized chaos full of hard-core excitement. With the beautiful and lively city of Cabo San Lucas as the backdrop, thousands of people crowd the marina walkways to shop, party and watch huge fish being weighed in at the scales in front of the world-famous Puerto Paraiso Entertainment Plaza. The Black & Blue is a once in a lifetime experience you’ll never forget, whether you take home memories or millions.
