The world’s biggest soccer teams have fan clubs in every corner of the Earth, but because of Cuba’s peculiarities, there are very few official fan clubs based in this corner of the Caribbean. “Official” fan clubs are those which have received the soccer team’s approval, as many unofficial ones have popped up all over the archipelago.

Depresión, la “Epidemia Silenciosa”, también ataca a Cuba

Profundizando en la distribución de esta llamada “epidemia silenciosa” en el planeta, la OMS dice que su relación con los rápidos cambios, las guerras, las migraciones no está clara y se atribuye más a vicios como el alcoholismo y el consumo de drogas.

The Cuban Market and its Inconsistencies

Not using the market properly has been - and still is - one of the country’s economic failures; not to mention the fact that it has also functioned without recognizing its mechanisms.

El gobierno cubano prohíbe la difusión de la Declaración Universal de los Derechos Humanos en la Isla, pero igualmente no permite a la opinión pública nacional conocer las Convenciones que el gobierno ha ratificado y, mucho menos, el estado de cumplimiento e incumplimiento de las Convenciones que tiene que aplicar en su legislación interna como Estado Parte, una vez que las ratifica.
