Pope urges Cubans to be patient yet persistent

Jun 6, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Catholic Spirit

By Francis X. Rocca Catholic News Service The Cuba that Pope Benedict XVI visited March 26-28 is a country where the Catholic Church enjoys significantly more freedom and official recognition than it did when Blessed John Paul II made the first papal visit to the island in 1998.

RE: Pope urges Cubans to be patient yet persistent
..... At one time the popes and the Stalinist type of Communism were bitter enemies - but times have changed. Apparently the Cuban type of Communism is now acceptable to popes and maybe they together can help many in Cuba who need and want help.

Sir,
The Pope is not to blame because Cubans whether in Cuba OR Miami have not liberated their island from two very old and fragile men, Fidel and Raul.
The Pope can not be expected to do what MILLIONS of Cubans refuse to do. It is high time they liberate their OWN island so please do not distort it in a Miami Cuban sort of way that the Pope is to blame.

Are you a Cuban?

Because if you are, me cago en tu madre.

"Notable & Emasculating: Cubans Are "Cowards"
"What about the Romanians, who finally had enough of Ceausescu and overthrew their version of castro? What about the Jews in the Warsaw Ghetto, who fought against the SS and the Wermacht? They gave the world the example of how not to be a victim. They may have died but at least they died with dignity and not being herded into a shower stall to be gassed with Zyklon B. These were real men. The Jewish women who fought in 1943 had more balls than I am seeing today in Cuba"

Cuban False Chameleon (Chamaeleolis) Breeding
Bonus content from the April 2011REPTILES magazine article "Alien Lizard."
By Kelly Bradley

Chamaeleolis species, commonly known as Cuban false chameleons, despite the fact that they are really anoles, do not require anything to stimulate breeding. Just make sure you have the Cuban false chameleons paired up and the female is in good body condition. Cuban false chameleons also breed successfully with a single male and multiple females, as long as the cage is large enough. A 29-gallon long aquarium is good for two lizards, and a 50-gallon tank would be good for three to four. When it comes to housing multiple Cuban false chameleons, always only have one male; males fight if kept in the same cage as other males. Watch for aggression between females during egg laying. I house the Cuban false chameleons together year round. Copulation and egg laying is seen during each month of the year. The females never show any clear signs of being gravid, but a behavioral cue is seeing the female sitting on the bottom of the cage. The only time I see the Cuban false chameleons on the floor of the enclosure is prior to finding an egg.

Female Cuban false chameleons lay eggs in the sphagnum substrate; typically, they are completely covered and are about three-fourths of an inch below the surface. Single eggs are laid approximately every 30 days; however, I did have a female reach a peak of one egg every 10 days. This lasts for about seven months. Like other anole species, Cuban false chameleons are capable of delayed fertilization. I had one female Cuban false chameleon continue to lay fertile eggs for up to 6 months after being separated from the male. Be sure to supplement females’ calcium consumption so that egg production doesn’t deplete their health. This is easily done by dusting the crickets with calcium and vitamin D3.
