Obra traduzida por Alex Ladd
Foi lançado nos Estados Unidos o livro "Life As It Is - Selected Stories" ("A Vida Como Ela É - Histórias Selecionadas"), como o subtítulo sugere uma seleção de 58 das melhores crônicas que Nelson Rodrigues fez para o jornal "A Última Hora" em sua coluna de mesmo nome ("A Vida Como Ela É") que durou uma década.
A tarefa mais difícil de Alex Ladd, o tradutor da obra de Nelson Rodrigues no mundo, foi convencer os editores gringos que o leitor americano está pronto para o autor brasileiro. É comum nos Estados Unidos pessoas desmaiarem no cinema, protestarem publicamente contra obras de arte e censurarem a sexualidade em detrimento da violência em filmes. Além do mais, o anglo-saxão é muito mais "frio", não se identificando tanto com a "enxurrada de emoções" dos latinos. Ladd conseguiu convencer os editores e o livro foi publicado.
Talvez pela globalização maciça proporcionada pela internet, talvez pelo americano mais culto ter tido sua curiosidade e relação ao que lhe é "alienígena" despertada nos últimos anos, talvez pela população latina ter aumentado tanto naquele país, "Nelson tem sido bem recebido" e o livro tem tido boas críticas e boa aceitação.

Intergovernmental Renewable Energy Organization, IREO is an Intergovernmental Organization that works to promote the use of affordable, clean sources of renewable energy worldwide. It strives to make Alternative Renewable Energy sources a key-driver to eradicate the current depletion of our environment by the use of fossil fuels that has led to the climate change and energy crisis due to high prices and other factors we are now facing. IREO strives to achieve global energy security, and bridge the energy divide with a special priority for the Developing and the Least Developed Countries with a South to South Sustainable Development Approach.
IREO is formed through a Constituting Treaty between the Official Members States depicted in box below that agreed to form a Collaborative Intergovernmental Cooperative Free Agreement for the promotion of Alternative Renewal Energy Resources to promote scientific research, initiatives, and education in favor of international cooperation.
The term "Intergovernmental" means that the organization is formed by a Formal Legal Agreement between the Member States / Countries that have agreed to realize a specific set of goals.
IREO is headquartered in New York, USA.
IREO is led by a Secretary-General under Article Five of the Constituting Treaty.

Functions of IREO
Based on the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations and the outcomes and declarations of the various United Nations Conferences and Summits convened over the last 10 years, I.R.E.O developed the following goals:
Promote energy efficiency and conservation;
Foster the collaboration of governments, NGOs, IGOs, academia, and the private sector at the most basic community level to educate the citizenries of the world on the dire need to change its current patterns of energy production and consumption;
Build alliances with scientists, universities, associations, think tanks and groups that have as an objective: the development of new technologies, to serve as a repository of information on new developments in the area of alternate renewable energy generation, including the results of actual applications either done as pilot projects or in general usage;
Create awareness to the public via newsletters, IREO's website, summits, conferences of local, regional and international scopes;
Encourage the greater use of renewable energy sources as a mean of reducing global warming and its negative impact on the environment, economies and people's lives;
Work collaboratively with governments to promote the use of renewable energy sources that are readily available to their respective countries and to propagate the use of proven technologies to other countries;
Facilitate the transition from a dependence on carbon based energy sources to renewable sources, particularly in the underdeveloped countries where tradition and economic conditions make it difficult to achieve. In this regard, IREO will assist in creating the alliances necessary to establish pilot projects in those developing countries that wish to start the process;
Greening the coal toward energy chain;
Promote and implement renewable energy for agriculture.
