La segunda recomendación ofrece dos visiones.

Por una lado, un tribunal ha convertido la mayor multa medioambiental de España en agua de borrajas: en nada. Una empresa minera destruyó literalmente un monte protegido sin pedir ni un solo permiso y no tendrá que asumir prácticamente ninguna responsabilidad.

Además, queda claro cómo esta empresa minera, y otras muchas, subsisten gracias a las subvenciones del Estado ya que su producción es ridícula y de mala calidad.

Conclusión: Pgamos para que nos destrocen el país

Hace días que no me paso por aquí... y lo hago para traer dos recomendaciones del periódico de hoy, ambas relacionadas con el medio ambiente y con la manía que tienen las instituciones del Estado de atacarlo por intereses económicos.

La primera es la decisión del Gobierno de la Generalitat valenciana de permitir edificar en zonas arrasadas por incendios. Esta medida ha sido una de las más exitosas en la lucha contra el fuego ya que la mayoría son provocados, bien para aprovechar la zona como tierras de labranza, bien para lograr una recalificación y edificar.

Recupero esta entrada de hace unas semanas. En mi opinión, define al genio que se ha marchado esta madrugada

One Sunday morning, January 6th, 2008 I was attending religious services when my cell phone vibrated. As discreetly as possible, I checked the phone and noticed that my phone said "Caller ID unknown". I choose to ignore.

After services, as I was walking to my car with my family, I checked my cell phone messages. The message left was from Steve Jobs. "Vic, can you call me at home? I have something urgent to discuss" it said.

Before I even reached my car, I called Steve Jobs back. I was responsible for all mobile applications at Google, and in that role, had regular dealings with Steve. It was one of the perks of the job.

"Hey Steve - this is Vic", I said. "I'm sorry I didn't answer your call earlier. I was in religious services, and the caller ID said unknown, so I didn't pick up".

Steve laughed. He said, "Vic, unless the Caller ID said 'GOD', you should never pick up during services".

I laughed nervously. After all, while it was customary for Steve to call during the week upset about something, it was unusual for him to call me on Sunday and ask me to call his home. I wondered what was so important?

"So Vic, we have an urgent issue, one that I need addressed right away. I've already assigned someone from my team to help you, and I hope you can fix this tomorrow" said Steve.

"I've been looking at the Google logo on the iPhone and I'm not happy with the icon. The second O in Google doesn't have the right yellow gradient. It's just wrong and I'm going to have Greg fix it tomorrow. Is that okay with you?"

Of course this was okay with me. A few minutes later on that Sunday I received an email from Steve with the subject "Icon Ambulance". The email directed me to work with Greg Christie to fix the icon.

Since I was 11 years old and fell in love with an Apple II, I have dozens of stories to tell about Apple products. They have been a part of my life for decades. Even when I worked for 15 years for Bill Gates at Microsoft, I had a huge admiration for Steve and what Apple had produced.

But in the end, when I think about leadership, passion and attention to detail, I think back to the call I received from Steve Jobs on a Sunday morning in January. It was a lesson I'll never forget. CEOs should care about details. Even shades of yellow. On a Sunday.

To one of the greatest leaders I've ever met, my prayers and hopes are with you Steve.

Dos artículos que analizan a fondo la reforma de la Constitución para incluir un tope de déficit.

Uno, más liberal, aboga por crear un consejo fiscal europeo que determine, en función del ciclo económico y de las previsiones, cuál es el margen en el que debe moverse cada Estado con independencia del ciclo político (http://politikon.es/equilibriosocial/2011/08/24/limitacion-constitucional-del-endeudamiento-publico/)

El segundo, mucho más a la izquierda, no quiere oír hablar de nadie que limite el déficit del Estado más allá de las decisiones políticas (http://www.agarzon.net/?p=1070)
