Brazil's Ministry of Agriculture estimated this week 1 million hectares per year will suffer deforestation until the year 2030, despite Vice President Hamilton Mourão's announcement Monday that plans to avoid it would be announced at the upcoming 26th United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP-26) in Glasgow.

    “While no one doubts that his happiest moments are …”

    “Your perceptions of others reveal so much about your own personality,” says Dustin Wood, assistant professor of psychology at Wake Forest and lead author of the study, about his findings. By asking study participants to each rate positive and negative characteristics of just three people, the researchers were able to find out important information about the rater's well-being, mental health, social attitudes and how they were judged by others.
    The study appears in the July issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. Peter Harms at the University of Nebraska and Simine Vazire of Washington University in St. Louis co-authored the study.
    “Seeing others positively reveals our own positive traits,” Wood says.
    “The simple tendency to see people negatively indicates a greater likelihood of depression and various personality disorders.” Given that negative perceptions of others may underlie several personality disorders, finding techniques to get people to see others more positively could promote the cessation of behavior patterns associated with several different personality disorders simultaneously, Wood says.
    By evaluating the raters and how they evaluated their peers again one year later, Wood found compelling evidence that how positively we tend to perceive others in our social environment is a highly stable trait that does not change substantially over time.

    This research suggests that when you ask someone to rate the personality of a particular.., you may learn as much about the rater providing the personality description. The level of negativity the rater uses in describing the other person, may indeed, but may also be a tip off that the rater is unhappy, disagreeable, neurotic -- or has other negative personality traits.

    How are you doing Pugol ? seems to be in high spirits, never letting Terry F*ckwitt's bs faze you....

    Exs of his more recent bs :

    “Given that negative perceptions of others may underlie several personality disorders, finding techniques to get people to see others more positively could promote the cessation of behavior patterns.....”

    Besides believing he is achieving something by quoting other's opinions, he actually believes that “negative perceptions of him, by others, must underlie personality disorders of the others”....well, well, well, once again it is obvious he believes he is perfect, above criticism, and those who dare criticize him have personality disorders.

    As to ”finding techniques to get people to see others (i.e., Terry) more positively”, any normal person wouldn't need to resort to 'techniques' to manage this . Simply being normal, not being a supercilious assh*le, would do the trick.

    I tried to ignore him, refrained from exposing a few nasty truths, and what happened ? more verbal aggression (diahrrea really), so what's the point ?

    His futile insistence that the picture of a tankard proves anything, has whiskers on it.

    Terry is the kind of person who, when you politely ask 'how they are', they actually start to tell you....who needs it ?

    To Terry the F*ckwitt, his opinions are (proven) fact, while facts stated by others are lies.

    How can he think that is a valid 'technique' to get others to see him more positively ? and

    'more' positively ? ....first of all, perception needs to stop being negative, then become positive, before it can become 'more' positive.
    He firmly believes that a lie told 1,000 times will become the truth....i.e., the 'tankard'..

    If he only realized that at times, perception by others is more important than the truth, he might 'just' get off his high horse and stop being so self-righteous......that'll be the day..

    You tried to fluff off your own revisionist fantasy that the dictatorship was justified, as there was communist uprising. Which is patently false, as I’ve shown. You also berated Lula as an arch criminal. Whereas it was shown that charges where false (as I said), and the judgments were made by a corrupt judge.

    You don't know when to stop, do you ?
    “The problem is you represent your misguided opinions”.....'misguided' ? in YOUR opinion.....and THAT gives you the right to call me a liar ?
    That's why everyone thinks so highly of you....(only joking, don't take it seriously...)

    It's laughable that you think you can deny me the right to have opinions just because they don't coincide with yours.

    Regarding events in 1963/64, prior to the military takeover, where were you ? NOT in Brazil.
    Perhaps with your head down the RAF bogs ?

    As a result of all the hundreds of Lavajato depositions given by loads of peole (politicians, a couple of Lulla's ex-ministers, businessmen, executives and industry owners) who confessed to their crimes - all which placed Lulla up to his neck in corruption - dozens were either sent to prison, or paid huge fines, or both, for their participation in Lulla's criminal organization (Petrolão).

    Still can't understand why someone would admit to committing inexistent crimes, such as paying 'imagined' bribes, go to prison for it, and all the person who supposedly received them, had to say was “ eu não sei de nada”, to get off scot free.....it served him well during the 'Mensalão' trials.

    So, the notion that the “Petrolão” was just the continuation of the Mensalão“ has to be a figment of my imagination, as is the leftist organization known as ”Foro de São Paulo“....ever heard of it ? to help out, the founders were Fidel Castro and .....Lulla !!! in 1990, the year after the USSR crumbled.

    And, WHERE were you when all this was going down ? NOT in Brazil....

    Just curious, which sources did you get your info from ? just a rhetorical question, we all know the answer - leftist sites that always and blindly defend Lulla, and the PT's site.....must say, very reliable sources.

    What makes you think you OWN the truth ? Must be that nasty personality that makes people ”love” you.

    Th4 must conclude, once again, that you are a nut case.

    As per evidence provided, serving my country as a bona fide Cold War Warrior through the Cuban Missile Crisis. On a Bomber Command Squadron.
    While you were playing as a reservist through your pretend revolution.

    As to Lula, he has been completely exonerated by the highest court in the land. While your craven military in 1964 was operating at the behest of a foreign country.

    The following is a proponent of the legal doctrine of a legal ’fiduciary duty of care’ we owe one another as to do no harm.

    “I. THE DUTY OF INQUIRY
    And no one man’s belief is in any case a private matter which concerns himself alone. Our lives are guided by that general conception of the course of things which has been created by society for social purposes. Our words, our phrases, our forms and processes and modes of thought, are common property, fashioned and perfected from age to age; an heirloom which every succeeding generation inherits as a precious deposit and a sacred trust to be handled on to the next one, not unchanged but enlarged and purified, with some clear marks of its proper handiwork. Into this, for good or ill, is woven every belief of every man who has speech of his fellows. An awful privilege, and an awful responsibility, that we should help to create the world in which posterity will live.”

    My question was purely rhetorical but, as I correctly presumed you would, you had to actually tell us where you were....who cares, because besides being a lie, the main point is, you were not here....and therefore don't really know what happened, or why.

    “As to Lula, he has been completely exonerated by the highest court in the land”....

    Wrong.....he was not declared an innocent man, he was only 'released'. His crimes will haunt him, and his brainless followers - like you - until he kicks the bucket.

In this way, de Paiva was able to drum up close to $20,000 a month in donations. … The denial of all political rights and the suppression of working class efforts to gain a more equitable share of Brazil's enormous natural wealth give the lie to the country's “economic miracle” that foreign investors proclaim.

    “No need to post your usual BS from leftist sources.”

    They are the only sources available, it’s noted that that you are unable to produce one iota of evidence to refute them.

    “The reason for the seeming paradox between a country so rich in natural resources yet one whose people suffer life-long misery is quite simple, however: for capitalists, both Brazilian and foreign, the masses are looked upon as costs, not customers: the lower their real wages, the higher the profits from selling to the local upper class and the international market.” and talked of “the intimate role the CIA has played in making Brazil one of the most repressive and, not surprisingly, one of the “safest” investment climates in Latin America.
    In September 2016, at a Council of the Americas event in New York, just weeks after Dilma Rousseff’s final removal, post-Coup President Michel Temer candidly admitted that the she had been impeached, not because of corruption, or the state of the economy, as had been depicted, but because she refused to implement their extreme Neoliberal programme “Bridge to the future”. This included a 20 year constitutionally enforced freeze on public education and health investment. The document caused controversy because appeared to have been translated from English and economist Marcio Pochmann noted similarities between “Bridge to the Future” and the “Government Economic Action Plan”) which followed the Coup of 1964. There was whispered speculation that it may have been drafted by Council of the Americas itself.”

    Just to remind you, ”Meu apoio irrestrito ao meu amigo de longa data e respeitado chefe militar (Mourão)“, escreveu Augusto Heleno, no Facebook”, does NOT mean that Mourão was Heleno's superior officer......you are forgiven for being an illiterate turd when it comes down to Portuguese.

    And before you become offended and start whining, I sent you his army service records, taken straight from the site of the Brazilian Armed Forces....I do believe that the Brazilian Army knows more about Mourão's army career than you do....LOL
