Veta EUA resoluciÃ³n de cese al fuego en la ONU
Se limita a pedir “el fin de la violencia” y se niega a solicitar un cese el fuego.
Nueva York, 30 de julio. Por presiones de Estados Unidos, el Consejo de Seguridad rechazÃ³ este domingo emitir una declaraciÃ³n de “condena” al bombardeo israelÃ sobre el campo de refugiados libaneses en Qana, y suavizÃ³ los tÃ©rminos en un texto “de consenso” en el que “deplora” y expresa su “extrema conmociÃ³n y dolor” por el ataque, asÃ como “su pÃ©same” a las familias de las vÃctimas.
DespuÃ©s de seis horas de negociaciones, el Ã³rgano ejecutivo de la OrganizaciÃ³n de Naciones Unidas tambiÃ©n declinÃ³ solicitar un “cese inmediato de hostilidades” y se limitÃ³ a pedir “el fin de la violencia” y “garantizar un alto el fuego duradero y permanente”.
30 aÃ±os de vetos de Amerika en el Consejo de Seguridad de la ONU (a sampler)
Las mejores tocadas de la historia Â¿SerÃ¡?
1. Queen, Live Aid (July 13, 1985)
At the gig itself 75,000 people clapped in unison to their 20 minute set – which included classics Radio Ga-Ga, We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions.
2. Jimi Hendrix, Woodstock (August 18, 1969)
Arguably the festival’s most memorable set came from Jimi Hendrix, and included his magnificent rendition of the Star Spangled Banner- somehow savage and grand at the same time, Hendrix wrestled new levels of emotion from the song and generations have never heard it quite the same way again.
3. Sex Pistols, Manchester Lesser Free Trade Hall (June 4, 1976)
A show organised by two Bolton Institute students Howard Trafford (Devoto) and Pete McNeish (Shelley). Less than 100 people turned up but more than 1,000 later claimed to have been there. The show acted as a catalyst for the nascent Mancunian music scene, inspiring many to form groups that went on to alter the course of pop music history such as New Order, Buzzcocks, and The Smiths.
4. Bob Dylan, Manchester Free Trade Hall (May 17, 1966)
Dylan turned his back on his acoustic roots and went electric, marking one of the most important junctures in post war popular music. Dylan was at the peak of his powers; the finest singer songwriter poet of his generation backed by arguably the best set of musicians ever to share a stage, playing some of the most amazing music that anyone had ever heard.
5. David Bowie, Hammersmith Apollo (July 3, 1973)
The last night of the UK Ziggy Stardust tour and Bowie makes his famous final speech about “The last show we’ll ever do”, sparking screams of pain from the audience. Confusion reigns amongst fans – has Bowie actually retired from music?
6. Bob Marley, One Love Peace Concert (April 22, 1978)
Bob Marley brings the hands of Prime Minister Michael Manley and opposition leader Edward Seaga together. The historic concert marked Marley’s triumphant return from exile and ended Jamaica’s most violent political rivalry.
7. Bruce Springsteen, Roxy (July 7, 1978)
Having been in court during the years following the huge success of Born To Run, Springsteen’s return with his fourth album, Darkness On The Edge Of Town was eagerly anticipated. The accompanying tour has been hailed as one of the greatest Rock n’ Roll shows of all time.
8. U2, Red Rocks (June 5, 1983)
U2 exploited the video age and the advent of MTV. The concert in the 9000 capacity venue, located outside of Denver, showed U2 as a band on the verge of conquering the rock heartland of America, a springboard to them becoming the biggest band of the last 25 years.
9. The Rolling Stones, Hyde Park (May 7, 1969)
What was supposed to be a celebratory return to the live scene, but took place two days after the death of Brian Jones. It would become one of the defining moments of the Sixties.
10. Radiohead, Glastonbury (June 28, 1997)
Considered by many, including Michael Eavis, founder of the Glastonbury Festival, the finest performance in the history of the event, despite the rain and cold.
The set came top of a poll voted for by a panel of over 60 artists, music journalists, broadcasters and music industry executives.

Bush refuses to press Israel for truce
ST. PETERSBURG, Russia,
President Bush refused to press Israel for a cease-fire in Mideast violence Friday, risking a wider breach with world leaders at a weekend summit already confronting crises with Iran and North Korea.
Flying here from Germany, Bush called the leaders of Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan to explore ways to end three days of furious fighting between Israel and Hezbollah militants in Lebanon. Turning aside complaints that Israel is using excessive force, Bush rejected a cease-fire plea from Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Saniora.
Bush’s firm support of Israel caused friction with allies as he seeks consensus against Iran and North Korea for their suspected nuclear weapons programs. The European Union has criticized Israel for using “disproportonate” force. From Russia to Spain, leaders voiced concern at the escalation of the conflict.
Syd Barret Is Dead
Lime and limpid green, a second scene
A fight between the blue you once knew.
Floating down, the sound resounds
Around the icy waters underground.
Jupiter and Saturn, Oberon, Miranda
And Titania, Neptune, Titan.
Stars can frighten.
Blinding signs flap,
Flicker, flicker, flicker blam. Pow, pow.
Stairway scare Dan Dare who’s there?
Lime and limpid green
The sounds surrounds the icy waters underground.
