Vila Nova deve estrear no Olímpico nesse Goianão 2022

In the 2022 elections, some sports-related names in Goiás tried to compete for a seat in the Legislative Assembly or in the National Congress, but did not succeed in the elections. Dante do Volei was not elected as a federal deputy, nor were Edson Automoveis, former councilor of Goiania, and Luis Bercuo, former president of the Goiás Basketball Federation, were not elected as state deputies. All of them have a list of relevant services provided to the Brazilian sport. They have earned a seat in Parliament.

Of the candidates strongly associated with sports, Daniel Vilela, who was elected lieutenant governor on the list of Ronaldo Cayado, succeeded. Daniel is a former professional soccer player. He has the right to represent the segment. Daniel Vilela is expected to have a strong focus on sports through the expansion of sports promotion programs in our state.

Goiás has interesting projects and sports support programs. Pro-Atleta is committed to serving high performance athletes; Construcindo Champions, a martial arts training program with about 7,900 students from Goiás; The Viva Mais Goias program targets seniors in 19 cities across the state.

The sports and parasports centers have been established by the State Department of Sports and Recreation (Seel) in cooperation with the municipalities of the hinterland. Also in partnership with the organizer of the championship of Spain, Seel implements the social project La Liga Goias with the distribution of sports materials in several municipalities of Goias.

Through Seel, the government promotes various sporting events and competitions. The Open Games of Goiás, the largest sports competition in the state, are designed for the participation of athletes from all the municipalities of Goiás in 21 uniforms. This year, the Quilombola Cup was created, which is held in six stages with the final in the city of Cavalcante.

At the national level, the Senate approved Bill 940 of 2022, which extends until 2027 the tax benefits provided by the Sports Promotion Act (Act 11,438 of 2006). The rapporteur on this issue was the former player Romario, who was re-elected as a senator from the PL of Rio de Janeiro. In addition to extending the term, the Senate-approved rule increases the rates that companies and individuals can use in their annual income tax (IT) contributions and includes elementary, middle and high schools as fundraisers.

In the case of individual taxpayers, the new LIE increases from 6% to 7% of the IRPF due to the deduction limit as a donation or sponsorship for sports and parasports projects. This, together with contributions to funds for children and the elderly, to cultural projects and investments in audiovisual works.

In the case of companies, it increases the deduction limit for donations or sponsorships of sports and parasports projects from 1% to 2%. It also includes projects for social inclusion through sports, up to a collective limit of 4%, which is currently shared only between cultural projects and investments in audiovisual works.

I think laws and programs to encourage sports should go beyond sponsoring athletes and teams from different sports. They also need to contain strategies for social inclusion. Only in this way will the entire population benefit from physical and sporting activities, leading to a healthier life for all.

We hope that elected politicians will follow through on the promises made during the campaign and step up action in favor of sport. We want to see the plate!

The Evangelical Church has lost the most in the elections – 11/27/2022 – Opinion

The Evangelical Church has lost the most in the elections - 11/27/2022 - Opinion

When I attended a meeting at my church to welcome new members, I heard the same story from many: They were there because it was an environment free of partisan politics. I remembered my own experience: I also accepted this criterion when I came from Recife and chose my church in São Paulo.

BUT Majority of evangelicals favor re-election of Jair Bolsonaro (PL) nothing new. All studies have shown this trend, and my experience confirms this. I don’t see a problem in the fact that the majority prefers this or that candidate, whoever he is. But it worries me political use of churches and, mostly, moments of worship to coerce the congregation into supporting the candidate.

For us, evangelists, worship is the time of the week for worshiping God, hearing the gospel, and fellowshipping with fellow believers. Before and during the campaign we saw the president and first lady use the pulpit to collect votes in the middle of the service🇧🇷 This attitude in itself should already be condemned and rejected by the evangelists themselves: the worship and authority of churches should not be used for electoral purposes.

This principle is not new even in the evangelical milieu. “When the evangelical church, as a church, makes a choice in favor of a candidate, it ceases to be a church. The Lord of the church is Jesus and he does not have voter registration in Brazil. We evangelists have the right to support, but to say that the Assembly of God supports “A” or “B” is to reduce the church to any institution, ”explained Silas Malafayain a 2002 video when he declared his support for the then-candidate Luis Inacio Lula da Silva (PT). Twenty years later, Malafaya, like other pastors, used his pulpit and Bible passages to support Bolsonaro.

Gradually the leaders and members of the various evangelical congregations began attitude to the vow as a confirmation of one’s faith in Christ🇧🇷 This association, in turn, leads to people patrolling and controlling other people’s votes, ridiculing or even excluding those who “vote wrong”. Communities that are supposed to welcome and unite completely different people under one faith have become a toxic environment.

The implications of this process go beyond spiritual matters. This indiscriminate and uncritical support from religious organizations and their leaders makes it difficult for evangelicals to participate in discussions of ideas and public policy. After all, they are stamped out as part of a political project (which doesn’t necessarily represent them in reality). The quality of public debate suffers and society becomes more polarized.

Evangelical leaders need to ask themselves how many members stopped attending services or even withdrew from their communities due to political discussions? Is this the example we want to set for the rest of society?

It is important to emphasize that the criticism of the political use of the cult and forced voting should not be confused with the position on the participation of evangelicals in politics. Every Brazilian has a trajectory, values, emotions and ways of thinking that make them support a candidate or an ideology.

No one should be excluded from public debate just because their values ​​were forged in a religious community. It is this logic that has inspired some Protestants to contribute to strengthening the state’s secular heritage so that they can freely practice their faith.

However, when political forces take over the space devoted to the profession of faith, believers, the exercise of individual freedoms and, consequently, the reputation of society is damaged. That is, even if the evangelical majority candidate won, the church would still be one of the biggest losers in the election. To overcome defeat, evangelical leaders will have to return to engaging in public debate based on Christian values ​​and abandon the false messiah’s power project.

Was the massacre of Aracruz politically and ideologically motivated?

Was the massacre of Aracruz politically and ideologically motivated?

Aloisio Morais Martins

If the information about the teacher is confirmed Flavia Amos Merson Leonardo, 38 was the first to be hit by shots fired by a 16-year-old boy at the Primo Bitti public school in Praia do Coqueiral, in the municipality of Aracruz, north of Espirito Santo, this may be an indication that the massacre was plotted for two years may have political motivation – ideological. The killer killed three teachers, a 12-year-old schoolboy and left 12 injured, five of them are still hospitalized in serious condition.

First, it would be good to define the context of the crime that the so-called “mainstream press” covered up: the massacre took place in a condominium created by the Aracruz Celulose company decades ago when it was implanted in the city. which eventually took on its name. It enjoys a privileged location, close to Praia do Coqueiral and 22 kilometers from the nerve center of the inland city of Aracruz. The condominium, intended for high-ranking employees of the company, has grown and today has become a residence for families of upper and middle class, and not just for employees of the company.

The minor who wore Nazi symbols during the crimes is the son of a military police lieutenant, Bolsonarist, who has already posted about Mincha Luta’s book written by the genocidal Adolf Hitler. “The book sucks. I read it and hated it,” he said. But a military man is, first of all, a person of the right wing. On social media, the boy looks dapper next to his father at a demonstration by Bolsonaro supporters. By the way, in the same hat as during the massacre.

On the other hand, Professor Flavia Amos Mercan Leonardo was known to be clearly a leftist. He had a postgraduate degree in social sciences from the Federal University of Espírito Santo, a PhD in anthropology from the Federal University of Minas Gerais and was an active participant in the Movimento dos Atingidos por Barragens (MAB), which played an important role in ES after the collapse of the Vale dam in Mariana, Massachusetts, when the waters of the Rio Doche were stained with mud from mining to estuary on the coast of Espirito Santo five years ago. Flavia has dedicated her academic career to teaching fishermen and ES natives. Why was the teacher chosen as the killer’s first target? Just a coincidence, or did the student have an ideological dislike for Flavia? According to the researchers.

It is worth noting that the killer boy shows good signs that he learned a lot from his father, definitely his idol. Even though he was a minor, the videos show that he learned to drive a vehicle very well, even at high speeds. In addition to his resourcefulness, the video shows very clearly how well he handles the weapons that he carried with him. And he shoots well. Who did you learn from? In his first confessions, released by the police, he says he acted alone and learned to shoot behind his father’s back. Can you believe? Maybe he’s trying to save face in front of his father? The police will have to make progress in investigating these aspects. Either way, this massacre promises intriguing chapters in these days of weapon deification (which we hope are drawing to a close). Let’s see!

And by the way, it doesn’t hurt to ask: does the killer’s father, like most Bolesonars, advocate coming of age at 16? Maybe for him “a good bandit is a dead bandit?”. Pepper is very good in the eyes of others, isn’t it?

Against the background of the tragedy, we have today in Espírito Santo a clear right-wing predominance in a state where Bolsonaro, for example, received 58.04% of the vote against 41.06% for Lulu in the second round of elections. . Those who were there, like me, on the eve of the elections, felt it very clearly in the streets and avenues, where big cars and double-cab pickups dominated the environment with their bold Bolsonaro advertising. The dominance is such that the elected president cannot hold rallies in the state due to the lack of a tribune. Re-elected governor Renato Casagrande of the PSB chose to light a candle to God and another to the devil, drawing the votes of the lulistas and bolsonarists by refusing to pose next to the petista.
