London, Dec 29, 2020 (AFP) -Archie, the son of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, was heard speaking for the first time on Tuesday when the couple launched their first podcast, with British media highlighting his “American” accent.

In the audio Archie, born in May 2019, laughs and wishes listeners “Happy New Year” at the couple’s debut on the Spotify platform.

The Royal Mail specialist Rebecca English said on Twitter that the boy “has a lot of American accent”, while the tabloid The Sun also said that “Baby Archie has an American accent.”

The appearance of 18-month-old Archie comes after the couple have taken legal action against the media for alleged privacy violations, while revealing aspects of their private life in ways they can control.

In November, the former American actress wrote an article for The New York Times in which she revealed that she suffered an abortion that would have been the couple’s second baby.

Since the couple abandoned their obligations as part of the royal family and moved to California, they have launched several creative ventures, including a deal with Netflix.

Zara, daughter of Princess Anne of England, and Mike Tindall are expecting their third child

Zara, the daughter of Princess Anne of England, and her husband Mike Tindall are expecting their third child, as announced by the husband of Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter in the podcast he presents, ‘The Good, The Bad & The Rugby’. “It has been a good week for me, the third Tindall is on the way.” With these words he announced the news.

The daughter of Princess Anne and Captain Mark Phillips already has two more daughters with Mike Tindall: Mia Grace, six, and Lena Elizabeth, two.. Her third child is on the way, after Zara suffered an abortion in December 2016 and another a few months later. “I think the hardest thing about our situation is that everyone knew it. Normally when this misfortune occurs you tell your family and friends, but in this case everyone was aware, “explained Zara Tindall.

Zara Tindall is not the only one of the British Royal Family to go through a similar situation. Not long ago it was her own Meghan Markle who announced that she had suffered an abortion this summer while she was changing her son’s diaper, which has caused “almost unbearable pain”, and said that “the loss and pain have affected us all in 2020.”


Our challenges are climate, capitalism reform and gender justice

Gender justice is one of the most important challenges of the 21st century together with the challenges that climate change and the reform of capitalism. This is how the French historian of the Paris XIII University estimates it, Ivan Jablonka (Paris, 1973), who addressed the matter in his award-winning novel ‘Läetitita or the end of men’ and now takes it up again in the essay ‘Righteous men’, recently published in Anagrama. But if the focus has usually been on women and feminism, he deals with men and new masculinities, the other side of the debate that has not ceased since it exploded with the #metoo.

'Righteous men'.
‘Righteous men’.

Jablonka takes a historical tour of the patriarchy, emerged already in the Upper Paleolithic, to end in the current era, when they have been put on the table, perhaps for the first time, the crisis that men are going through as a result of the latest feminist movements. The historian relates this crisis to populism and that experienced by some democracies, such as Brazil, Poland or Hungary, countries in which fundamental rights are being limited. To counteract this effect, Jablonka considers it necessary for men to carry out their own reflection, the one that women already did centuries ago. As he insists in this interview, “gender justice concerns our personal morality, but also public policies and education. Parents also have a responsibility, if they raise their sons as kings and their daughters as sweet creatures destined to please. to men. “

QUESTION. No offense, is your book an exercise in ‘mansplaining’ on patriarchy?

REPLY. I am not offended! Criticism is essential in a democracy and in the social sciences. What I was looking for was to go back to the sources of male domination to find out how we can get out of it. This historical investigation is linked to that of a utopia, that of “just men.” My book is addressed to women, of course, but also to men, who seldom question masculinity.

Q. What did you want with this essay?

R. My main objective is to rethink the masculine, at the same time to make it more complex and to make it compatible with the rights of women. Patriarchy harms women, but also men, particularly those whose masculinity is deemed illegitimate, such as Jews, blacks, or homosexuals. Everyone knows the portrait of the self-defined “real man”: risk-taking, ability to endure alcohol, great involvement in his work, inability to verbalize his emotions or consult a therapist. Those are alienations that, in my opinion, many men suffer.

The #MeToo has been said to have “freed” the word of women, but the silence of men, who may express annoyance, indifference, contempt or hostility, has been less noted. That silence is also a silence about masculinity, an inability to think about it. Why is a misogynist often also a homophobe? Why do men read less than women? I wanted to speak, insofar as I am a man, about masculinity. My reflection is evidently compatible with feminist emancipation struggles.

“It has been said that #MeToo had ‘freed’ the word of women, but the silence of men has been less pointed out”

Q. I read a few years ago ‘Laëtitia or the end of men’. I think that story about the murder of an 18-year-old girl also inspired this book.

R. My book ‘Laëtitia or the end of men’, published in 2016 just before #MeToo, is part of the journey of a genre. My introspection began in childhood, because I come from a family where the division of tasks was globally traditional. However, as an orphan of the Shoah, my father was also a victim, that is, a vulnerable man. In adolescence, as I was neither a great footballer nor a great seducer, I felt a bit uncomfortable in the masculine. Subsequently, in my work as a historian, I have become interested in abandoned children and in the legal misogyny of the 19th century. Finally, ‘Läetitia’ asked the masculine in its most aggressive and pathological version. ‘The just men’ comes to prolong this reflection, but in a more positive way. After diagnosing the “end of men”, they had to be reborn under the features of “just men”.

Ivan Jablonka.Ivan Jablonka.
Ivan Jablonka.

Q. In this book you explain that the patriarchy began as early as the Neolithic. Is it reversible?

A. Male domination stems from a long history. Probably a sexual division of tasks in the Upper Palaeolithic, linked to the “maternal cost” that weighs on women. The definitive establishment of male dominance undoubtedly dates back 5000 or 6000 years. This presence explains the immediate control of writing in the 4th millennium, of the State in the 3rd, of arms in the 2nd, and of religions in the 1st. We had to wait for the Atlantic revolutions in the 1770s. -1790, so that patriarchy is answered by a current of thought called feminist. Since patriarchy is a cultural institution, and not a biological fact, it is reversible. I say this with very moderate optimism. It would be necessary for men to get involved in the fight, alongside women who are already involved in it.

“Male domination stems from a long history. Probably a sexual division of tasks in the Upper Paleolithic”

P. What role does social class play in this matter? Throughout history, women from rich families have been able to study and even be more independent.

R. Machismo and gender violence exist in all media and in all countries of the world. The question therefore is not whether a man is rich or poor, white or black, Christian or Muslim, but whether his masculinity is compatible with gender justice.

P. In recent times a certain feminism of care related to maternalism has emerged. You criticize it because you consider it a conservative and essentialist, but it has been widely accepted by left-wing movements and parties. Is the left wrong?

R. I do not criticize the maternalist current. I recognize all the currents of feminism, because today we need their contribution, their strength and their radicality. Instead, I don’t think feminism merges into biology. Since the 18th century, feminists have been fought by many men, but at the same time they were supported by some pioneers such as Condorcet, Fourier, John Stuart Mill or Tahar Haddad. There are men who are victims of patriarchy, there are women who feel good about it. Society will have progressed when men recognize themselves in caregiving activities.

Q. On the other hand, there are women who identify with the Amazons: they talk about their sexual relationships, their independence, power, bravery … Are they women against feminism of care, of that maternalist feminism?

R. I want women to have access to all positions of power and responsibility. It is a moral requirement and a guarantee of social effectiveness. On the other hand, women are free in all things. I am not going to judge what they have the right to do or say. I am in favor of the equality of women and men, but also of the freedom of women and men.

“Society will have progressed when men recognize each other in caregiving activities”

Q. When we publish this type of topic about feminism, there is usually a furious reaction from men and some women. Why do you think this is so?

A. The privileges of men are material (in the political, economic and domestic sphere) and symbolic (a man will be more listened to than a woman). On the part of men, it is not always easy to recognize or understand. For women it is a form of supplementary violence.

P. This issue of male frustration and the crisis will affect our democracies. In countries like Poland and Hungary we have already seen a setback in democratic values.

R. Masculinism, which is a kind of anti-feminism, is one of the dangers that we must face. It is linked to populism, as we see in the United States, in Brazil, in Russia, in Turkey, in Hungary and elsewhere. This masculinism “from above” joins a masculinism “from below”, that of declassified workers who feel overwhelmed by a society that seems to them increasingly feminized. The 21st century will have several challenges: the fight against global warming, the reform of capitalism and gender justice. My book is about the third challenge.

“Masculinism, which is a kind of anti-feminism, is one of the dangers we must face. It is linked to populism.”

Q. You speak of refounding the masculine. What does that mean?

A. The eternal masculine does not exist, in the same way that the eternal feminine does not exist. Giving up a mandatory virility model is enriching other forms of masculinity. You have to escape the prison of gender, which consists of limiting yourself to a single way of living, with the canons of authority and beauty: being muscular, active, peremptory, etc. There are a thousand ways to be a man.

Ivan Jablonka.Ivan Jablonka.
Ivan Jablonka.

Q. What is the new masculinity?

R. I propose three “new masculinities”: a masculinity of non-domination, which dissociates the masculine and the power; a masculinity of respect, which governs seduction and sexuality; a masculinity of equality, which consists of living in equality in the daily life of the couple, at work or on the street. But I conceive these masculinities from a single psychological and private point of view. When I speak of gender justice, I also think of state feminism and collective mobilizations. I think of a decisive role for intermediate bodies, political parties, unions, associations, religions. Gender justice concerns our personal morals, but also public policies and education. Parents also have a responsibility, if they raise their sons as kings and their daughters as sweet creatures destined to please men.

“We must celebrate the first gestures of Biden, who has appointed several women to important positions”

Q. You also speak of feminist leadership. Do you think Macron is a feminist leader? Is there a feminist leader?

R. The French president is not feminist at all. Its narrower circle is entirely male, and it has appointed men whose past is highly controversial as ministers. In Canada, Justin Trudeau calls himself a feminist. Many doubt it, but it is already a good thing that it is presented like this. At the same time, we must celebrate the first gestures of Biden, who has appointed several women to important positions.

Q. Should women and men fight together against patriarchy or is it a women’s issue?

R. Women are the ones who, historically, have taken up the fight against misogyny, inequalities and gender violence. That will continue to be the case and it is normal. But I think it is urgent, for men, to question themselves, to adopt other models that are not masculinity of domination, to fight against the patriarchy that poisons us all. We risk both private happiness and democratic legitimacy.


Enrique Santos Molano’s column on the seventh green corridor – Columnists – Opinion

It is now discussed whether the green corridor is different from the TM (position of the mayor’s office) or if it is a TM with a different name (position of the critics of the previous design, see EL TIEMPO. 11/29/2020, ‘Green Corridor: ¿ How much does it resemble TM for the seventh? ‘). In urban road language, corridor is synonymous with trunk. Vehicles of different categories run or are mobilized on these roads, especially public passenger transport, and they do not have permanent employment outside of processing the vehicular flow. On the other hand, avenues are urban road spaces that, along their route, originate intense, varied and constant human activity.

The 7. has always been an avenue. La Caracas was, from its opening in the 1930s, a great avenue, the second in importance after 7th, until two disasters “intervened” in it. First, Mayor Andrés Pastrana with the ‘solobus’ (one of the worst embarrassments our city has suffered), and then, Mayor Enrique Peñalosa with the ‘first phase’ of the TM corridor or trunk through Caracas, which, at the On the side of the ghastly ‘solobus’, it looked like a Rolls-Royce next to a wheelbarrow. The people of Bogota spoke to each other and admired with joy the announced redemption of Caracas Avenue and the arch-publicized wonder of the urban public transport system that the TM promised us. The illusion did not last long.

Nobody in those days paid attention to why, in the pseudo-technical gibberish of Peñalosa, they stopped calling Caracas avenue (even before undertaking the works of the TM), and henceforth they applied the ladino nickname of ‘Caracas corridor’ , which led to ‘the Caracas trunk’, the beginning of a delirious series of fifteen trunk lines programmed by Peñalosa, in which Carrera 7.ᵃ was not included (I emphasize). Mutating Caracas Avenue as a corridor was not an innocent technicality. It was proposed to disappear the concept of the citizen as the protagonist of urban life, and replace it with the neoliberal doctrine that makes public services a private business; This is that it reverses the condition of the citizen subject to the beneficiary of public services, for that of the citizen object of the exploitation of the business of public services, although he is deceived, as in the case of the TM, with illusionism passes that show him how TM’s diesel trunks, corridors and articulated vehicles will forever solve the centuries-old and neuralgic problem of insufficient, uncomfortable, unsafe urban transport, for efficient, agile transport, with maximum comfort and safety for passengers. A mirage, as Yolanda Reyes notes, with reference to number 7.ᵃ, in her formidable column (EL TIEMPO, 11/30/2020. ‘The mirage of the seventh’).

Well, the TM, its corridors, its trunk lines, its polluting articles and its terrible stations and portals did not correct the defects or improve the previous transport service. On the contrary, they made them bigger and worse. That story is more than known, and suffered in the last twenty years, to have to be re-told for the thousandth time.

The specific point is to point out that if Mayor López insists on calling her project of “intervention of the 7.ᵃ” “green corridor”, the connotation with trunk is inevitable, as it is inevitable to agree with Councilor Carlos Fernando Galán.
how many like him have denounced that the green corridor is neither more nor less than a TM with another name.

Such suspicion is easy to support in the fact that the exclusive lane for the alleged dual electric buses will have, like the TM of Caracas, 30, 80, Jiménez and the El Dorado trunk, embedded stations in the separators, as the former mayor Peñalosa left them premeditated in his trunk project for the 7.ᵃ. So, Dr. Claudia López, don’t try to screw us up. The green corridor that the mayor presents resembles the TM as much as the TM of Caracas. If it crystallizes, the human activity that gives life to the avenue will be extinguished in it like the one that gave life to Caracas and the other avenues that degenerated into trunk-corridors.

A tweet that circulates on the social network asks: “Why does the mayor @ClaudiaLopez object to the mandate of the climate emergency that establishes that the District will not acquire fossil fuel buses from 2022? They knocked down the subway and with it the proposal for sustainable multimodal transport. “

The tweeter’s question allows me to make a conjecture that reinforces the theory of the green corridor as a cover for the TM by the 7.ᵃ, and that, in order not to lengthen this column, I will explain it in the next one.


Father Alfonso Llano. Painful news the departure of this Jesuit priest, wise and simple, like everyone in his community, and more than anyone, a true rebel. A character that those of us who had the pleasure and honor of deserving his friendship will not forget. Many anecdotes can be told about Father Llano, which are more interesting and sympathetic. One of them, his love of cinema. I used to meet him at the exit or entrance of the Cine Colombia Multiplexes in the Avenida Chile center. He always commented to me, with extremely acute observations, on the movie he had just seen. I suppose he got bored that the pandemic had deprived him of his favorite distraction and decided to go to a place where there are no pandemics, and no one can prevent him from entering a movie theater whenever he wants. Each one chooses the paradise they like the most. Father Llano’s is the cinema. In heaven you will have your Multiplex. Or else, Munir Falah will take care of supplying it.

Quini’s ‘son’ in Barcelona

Diego Armando Maradona was turned off yesterday at age 60 after suffering a cardiorespiratory arrest at his residence in Tigre, in Buenos Aires. On June 4, 1982, the Barcelona Soccer Club closed the operation for 1,200 million pesetas. Maradona was then 21 years old. He was a boy when he arrived in Barcelona and left Argentina. Quini He had 32 and seven Pichichi Trophies behind him: (1973-1974, 1975-1976, 1979-1980, 1980-1981, 1981-1982). He was a ‘heavyweight’ in the culé locker room with ancestry in the project led by Udo Lattek, which aroused passions. “Quini received more letters than Maradona at that time,” recalls Ángel ‘Pichi Alonso’. Quini quickly became fond of that very young Argentine who was called ‘El Pelusa’ because of his curly hair. «It helped me a lot on my arrival in Barcelona. We played a lot of tennis in our spare time. I hope you rest in peace. I send a big hug to all your family, “wanted to remember the Argentine legend, considered the best in history by many, with a loving letter on the day of Quini’s death.

«I was very fond and fond of him. When he met him in Barcelona, ​​Maradona was a very young boy who had just arrived from Argentina. Our father always said that he was a very shy person “, recalls Óscar Castro, son of a former Sporting and Barcelona player. ‘He was almost out of the changing room. Our father (Quini) helped him integrate », he adds.

Maradona, hardly impressionable, was captivated, trapped by the sly character of ‘Quinocho’, bewitched by his aura. “I remember a play that Lattek had forbidden us to make, for fear that we would injure ourselves. I threw centers at Quini; he came running from the middle of the field and finished them off with a head. Then he threw centers at me and I did the same. Like Urrutia, we were all muddy, “said Maradona.

They became inseparable in the two years they shared at the Barcelona Football Club. ‘El Pelusa’ had been warned of the toughness of the defenders in Spain. Goikoetxea, the Athletic center-back, who two years earlier had threatened to end Bernd Shuster’s career, sent him directly to the operating room with a chilling entrance, with the studs in front, which is still remembered at the Camp Nou. Quini promised him in the hotel room, that if he was aligned against Magdeburg, he would dedicate the goals and the victory to him.

Coexistence remembered by Schuster, the Argentine’s roommate. The three of them became intimate. Although the character of the German was different. «Maradona never wanted to go to bed. He turned off the light at ten at night. Diego always kept watching television. And me: what do I do now? », I wondered», says the German.

Maradona's first appearances in EL COMERCIO

The forward certified with his two goals the victory of Barcelona (2-0) against the German team. Quini kept his promise. They say that he even managed to get a smile from ‘El Pelusa’, who did not want to know anything about football if he was not on the grass. «A scorer of those who no longer exist, of the Martín Palermo style left. Maybe he didn’t touch the ball the entire game. But when he hit him left-handed, he did it as the best southpaw. And when he was left to the right, he did it as the best right. The ball was always looking for him, “wrote the Argentine. Quini never missed that shy but smiling young man on a visit. They remember in the environment a trip from when the young man was already a legend.

Maradona was playing for Napoli, when one summer afternoon he accepted the invitation of ‘El Brujo’ and came to Asturias to visit Quini and his family and enjoy a placid barbecue between anecdotes and jokes, to the laughter of Falo Castro . Quini, by then, was already beginning to be distressed by the constant deterioration of the unfortunate Argentine. «Our father was very concerned about Maradona’s state of health. I was sorry to see him in these conditions and the constant deterioration that his health had in these years. He has always had good words for him. He had a very special affection for him, ”explains his son Óscar.

Nothing, in any case, could erase from Diego’s memory his beginnings in Europe or break the friendship between two geniuses who admired each other like Quini and Maradona, who were about to return another occasion to El Molinón on the occasion of the tribute to Quini and play the rojiblanca as Schuster in the friendly that faced Sporting and Madrid. Such was the affection that Quini had for him that at the 1994 World Cup in the United States he told the journalist Sergio Sauca: “I’m going to the hotel for a moment to see Maradona.” The Argentine was there, who had also attended the world championship as a player. That was the last meeting between the two legends. “Quini, an exceptional man, left,” Maradona said goodbye in his letter. “He always used to say that Maradona was a good person with everyone, with everyone except just one person: with himself,” repeat the sons of the former Sporting and Barcelona striker.

Goodbye to Diego Maradona, the great football myth
