Intermedio (Colombian newspaper)

Intermedio was a Colombian newspaper issued as a replacement for El Tiempo, when it was closed down during the dictatorship of General Gustavo Rojas Pinilla, in the early morning of August 4, 1955. The night before, the newspaper building was occupied by government troops that prevented the publication of a new edition. Intermedio was the first publication of the Casa Editorial El Tiempo, a publishing company founded by former President Eduardo Santos in order to use printing equipment to make different kind of printed products. On June 13, 1953 Lieutenant General Gustavo Rojas Pinilla assumed the presidency of Colombia in a coup d'état from Laureano Gómez, as he was retiring from his office due to health problems and had delegated his functions to the acting President, Roberto Urdaneta Arbeláez. Press censorship had been imposed during the Mariano Ospina Pérez administration, in 1949, intensified with his successors Gómez and Urdaneta. Under Rojas, the situation did not change; the event that triggered the closure of El Tiempo was the death of journalist Emilio Correa Uribe, editor of El Diario in Pereira, his son Carlos Correa.

The official version claimed that they had died in a traffic accident, but all available information led to conclude that both of them had been killed by a group of armed conservative assassins known as "Los Pájaros". President Rojas Pinilla, during his trip to Ecuador, accused the Colombian press of lying about it. Roberto Garcia-Peña, editor-in-chief of El Tiempo, sent a telegram to his colleague of El Comercio in Quito, setting out his position and emphasizing that the deaths had been murder and not due to a simple car crash; the government wanted to force El Tiempo to print on the front page for thirty days, a message retracting on its statements and apologizing to the President for having "offending him unfairly", but without saying that it was a rectification ordered by the regime. The intended text to be published was as it follows: "We express sincere and public excuses to the President of Colombia on behalf of our newspaper and our editor-in-chief, Roberto García-Peña, we confess that we committed an unfair offense, since what he said at the press conference held in the city of Quito is rigorously true".

Garcia-Peña roundly refused to publish that retracting message because his newspaper had nothing to beg for forgiveness. The dictatorship issued Act 036, in the early morning of August 4, 1955, El Tiempo was closed down; that same day, Minister of Government Lucio Pabón Núñez, read the official press release on Radio Nacional de Colombia A few weeks Rojas Pinilla himself during a speech boasted of having destroyed a mass media that he regarded as his enemy and a sort of super-state, saying that "Since August 4, 1955, the country has been notified that the Head of State of Colombia is in the President's Palace and not in the publishing department of any newspaper". In order to not to leave his employees without a job and avoid bankruptcy, Eduardo Santos created the "Casa Editorial El Tiempo" by redistributing shares among some members of the Santos family, Roberto García-Peña, Abdón Espinosa Valderrama, other people of his inner circle of friends and collaborators. After having fulfilled the legal requirements, Intermedio was first published on February 21, 1956.

The editor in charge was brother of Eduardo Santos. Intermedio used the same typeface in its masthead as used by El Tiempo, the layout was identical, the sections and columns were the same ones that appeared in El Tiempo. Street sellers of newspapers kept announcing it as El Tiempo, although, not its name. What is more, the name of Intermedio was purposely chosen to mean that the situation was something temporary, short-lived, like the interlude of a theater play, that the dictatorship of Rojas, sooner rather than was going to fall. To emphazize that idea, the front page of the first edition included a cartoon by Hernando Turriago "Chapete", in which a old actor standing on stage, with an hourglass and a scythe in his hands, greets the spectators by saying: "Thank you much and gentlemen, and now, some moments of Interlude". However, in that first edition of twelve pages, Intermedio reluctantly had to publish a press release ordered by the regime in which ratified that the death of the Correas, had been caused by an accident.

The relationship between the government and the newspaper was ambivalent. On the one hand, in April 1956, Rojas suggested that the Santos brothers reopen El Tiempo, but Eduardo Santos rejected the proposal and assured him that his newspaper would not return as long as the dictatorship existed. From on, censorship became a little more flexible, but on the other hand, the import of paper and other supplies needed for printing were blocked by bureaucratic paperwork. While Rojas's de facto regime was collapsing, two deadly enemies of previous decades, the leaders of Liberal and Conservative parties, Alberto Lleras Camargo and Laureano Gómez were creating a strategy to overthrow the dictatorship. Thus, by the Agreement of Benidorm, on July 24, 1956, the "Agreement of March", they set the basis of what would be known as the National Front, which consisted of the democratic alternation in the Presidency of the two traditional parties and the equal distribution of bureaucratic offices; the political situation reached a critical point when a national strike was organized by most sectors of the Colombian society on May 5, 1957.

Mass media, industry, commerce and other groups of the economy ceased their activities. Rojas Pinilla announced his resignation, designated as a replacem

Crassula atropurpurea is a succulent plant common and widespread in the southern Karoo regions of South Africa and Namibia. This species is variable, it is a small, shrubby perennial, with erect, branching stems. Its leaves are erect, or only twisted across the stem; the leaves packed evenly along the stems. Each leaf is linear-obovate, has a waxy surface. During drought or sun exposure, the leaves can develop a purple colour, its slender spike-like inflorescence bears pale yellow-white flowers. The key distinguishing character of this species is its canaliculate dorsal petal appendage; the type variety is the most variable in appearance. Key features for identifying it include: The leaf surface is smooth or papillate, but never hairy. There are 3-4 pairs of sterile bracts along the stem of the inflorescence; the pointed, canaliculate petals are papillose. In addition, the stems of this variety are erect branches; the new leaves are erect, becoming spreading and falling off with age. The leaf shape is oblong to oblanceolate, flattened with a convex outer/lower surface.

They are cuneate at the base, obtuse at the apex. Around the Langeberg and Swartberg mountains, as far west as Worcester, some forms can have slender, pointed leaves; this variety occurs from Worcester and Swellendam in the west, as far east as Port Elizabeth, as well as around the Swartberg mountains. Its habitat is dry, rocky slopes and outcrops. A distinctive south-western variety. Key diagnostic features include: The leaves and stem are covered in erect hairs.

There are 1-2 pairs of sterile bracts along the stem of the inflorescence. In addition, the stems are erect branches and slender. Leaves are grey-green to reddish-brown. In habitat they are distinctively reddish around the leaf-margin, where the hairs are longer; the leaf shape is obovate, with obtuse apices. This Karoo variety occurs from Worcester, eastwards to Prince Albert and northwards to the Cedarberg, its habitat is exposed shallow soil on dry, sunny rocky hilltops. From quartzite gravel slopes and dunes in the far north, near Garies. From Karoo slopes of sandstone/quartzite rocks, from the Anysberg and north of the Witteberge mountains, as far west as the Cedarberg mountains. From arid sheltered rocky crevices across the Namaqualand. C. atropurpurea is related to Crassula subaphylla, Crassula cultrata, Crassula cotyledonis, Crassula pubescens and Crassula nudicaulis.

Crassula subaphylla is distinguished by its scrambling habit, its narrower leaves with swollen bases. C. atropurpurea is common and distributed in rocky areas across the western half of southern Africa.
