I took advantage of the last sunny, but also 25°C hot day and hiked in the woods. It was so much more pleasant in the forest than out in the sun. The wind could have been a long stronger with that heat. I was completely soaked.

At one point I thought I better grab my camera out of my backpack, so whenever something comes up, I’m ready. But I was too lazy and thought, well, I just wait until there is a nice subject and keep going instead. No joke, ten meters further I came across two squirrels. A red and a brown one, sitting on a tree at just one and three meters height two meters away from me. If I only had unpacked my bloody cam a few seconds ago! I just watched them sit on the tree and then tried to slowly strip my backpack and grad the cam. It was still booting up when they decided it was enough sitting around and climbed higher. What a silly move on my end, damn.

I tried to improvise some Lyse Street View, but felt really uncomfortable to photograph other people’s houses. Somehow my cam produced sooo many blurred shots on the way up still away from the village, it’s unbelievable. I scrapped nearly the entire project. Only very few survived. There were heaps of people on the mountain summit, so I quickly left again.

Looking forward to next week’s rain and temperature drop to 16°C or even 8°C.

Just a few minutes into my walk I saw a raven chopping up a slow worm in three parts. :-( I rescued the reptile as best as what you can call rescue in that state. Crazy how the the tail and middle part kept on twisting hard for minutes. I didn’t see where the raven went hiding, so I can only hope it did not reattack after the slow worm went its way and I left the scene.

The small forest pond was covered in pollen, looked like a liming truck went by. And the other one with the duck was really oily. Way more than last time. Didn’t look healthy at all. :-(

O que vemos mais uma vez é uma instrumentalização da imprensa para atacar o TC, encobrindo a responsabilidade de quem tinha a obrigação de cumprir a lei e apresentar prova… legal. Porque, como se vê neste caso, deu na libertação de quem não devia estar livre.

Aqui, o @edsantos explica bem a questão, com uma analogia clara: “quando o VAR anula um golo marcado com a mão, a culpa é do VAR, que se limita a assinalar a ilegalidade do lance, ou de quem recorreu a métodos ilegais?”

https://www.dn.pt/opiniao/metadados-o-tribunal-constitucional-tem-costas-largas-15938285.html/ Os ataques públicos ao TC visam lançar uma cortina de fumo sobre os verdadeiros responsáveis pela situação. Vamos lá ver: Quem é que, sabendo da invalidade da diretiva desde 2014 e conhecendo o problema do uso de metadados, enterrou a cabeça na areia e recusou alterar a lei? Quem é que durante anos continuou a recorrer a prova que, afinal, não era admissível? Quem baseou acusações criminais nos alicerces que ora desmoronam? Não admira, pois, tanto empenho em culpar o TC. Mas quando o VAR anula um golo marcado com a mão, a culpa é do VAR, que se limita a assinalar a ilegalidade do lance, ou de quem recorreu a métodos ilegais?
