Schrödinger´s Vote

Luis Braga

There is a great debate in Brazil about the nature of electronic voting machines that are not immune to hacking but do not allow for an unquestionable audit. The article gives several arguments and examples from scientific authorities around the world supporting these concerns.

The Neglect

Clovis Pereira da Silva

 

In the country's federal administration, we highlight two moments that were ignored by public managers, and that could have been used to prepare and execute a university policy plan for Brazil. Plan that, over the years, could undergo updates. In our considerations we will not include the disregard for the subject, on the part of those who instituted the republican regime in Brazil in 1889.

One of the opportunities that was ignored occurred in the 1930s, when the then Minister of Education and Public Health, Mr. Francisco Campos presented to the Head of the Provisional Government of Brazil, the Explanatory Memorandum for his Project on Higher Education Reform, see Official Gazette, April 15, 1931, pp.15.115-15.116.

Covid-19: Fighting the cure (I)

                 Behind the scenes of the most disgusting manipulation of the public health

Luis Braga (OBSUNI)

Introduction

 

                    I have been working in geostatistics and data mining for over 30 years and since 2007 I coordinate the UNIVERSITY OBSERVATORY Project (OBSUNI)1 whose goal can be summed up in the investigation of why the university does not work, or works so badly in Brazil and not so well elsewhere2. In mid-February we organized a lecture on the pandemic COVID-19 with Dr. Fernando Portela Câmara, which was later unfolded in four videos that can be found on the OBSUNI TV page3 , on the OBSUNI website. Five months later, with around 17 million cases worldwide, around 10 million recovered, 670 thousand dead and the remainder being treated, the most recent pandemic has as its main characteristic the abusive interventions of supranational entities, governments and corporations that seem to point more towards combating cure than promoting it.
