Living on a dollar a day seems nearly unfathomable, but roughly one in six people in our world do on a daily basis. For her work Living On A Dollar A Day, photographer Renée C. Byer teamed up with San Francisco nonprofit The Forgotten International and ventured to four continents to capture intimate stills of people affected by extreme poverty.

“For me it’s very important to go behind the scenes and into their home to find pieces of daily life that everyone can relate to,” Byers said in an interview with National Geographic. “So people aren’t seeing a photo that will push them away, but will pull them back into the scene. So they’re not being overwhelmed by the emotion, but they’re able to relate to the emotion. So that they can imagine themselves trying to live this life, and in some way, hopefully, they could help.”

Islamic State has waged a brutal campaign to seize territory, displacing many thousands

Kurds are desperate for help, but Turkey is refusing to renege on its long-standing enmity

“We have reached an agreement for a legal framework and now it will be a matter for our military when our special forces will be deployed,” Ms Bishop said at the end of a two-day trip to Baghdad.

Despite a huge effort by the US and its allies, Islamic State militants are continuing to rule over large parts of Iraq and Syria.

In recent weeks, the group has carried out a wave of suicide attacks, and has fended off attacks by Iraq’s armed forces.

Militants are also embroiled in fighting with Kurdish forces in the northern Syrian town of Kobane.

A Washington Post-ABC News Poll said that 67 percent of Americans support restricting entry to the U.S. to travelers who have been in Ebola-affected countries.

Other countries — most recently including Jamaica, Guyana, Trinidad and Tobago, Colombia, and St.Lucia — have already taken steps to ban travelers from Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone or restrict entry until after a 21-day quarantine. Nigeria, Senegal and Democratic Republic of Congo are also on some of the banned lists.

Panic as jet’s cabin walls crack on flight to Dallas

SAN FRANCISCO — A Dallas-bound American Airlines flight that departed from San Francisco International Airport turned back and made an emergency landing after some of the cabin’s wall panels cracked loose, aviation and airlines officials said.
The captain of the Boeing 757 decided to turn around an hour into the flight to Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport because of a possible blown air duct, American Airlines spokesman Matt Miller said.

Flight 2293 departed from SFO shortly before 1 p.m. Monday and landed without incident about 2:15 p.m. No one on the plane with 184 passengers and six crew members was hurt, he said.

“The captain elected to return to San Francisco and landed the plane safely,” Miller said.

Even though the plane’s problem is related to pressurization, the cabin did not lose pressure and oxygen masks did not deploy, he said.

Flight attendants told passengers the problem was “cosmetic,” a passenger said.

Aviation safety experts agreed with that assessment and said that while it is disconcerting for passengers to see any piece of the plane break, the cabin’s wall panels are not part of the plane’s structure.

“The plastic wall has no meaning to the safety of the plane. They are there so you don’t have to look at the bare walls,” said Robert Ditchey, an aeronautical engineer with four decades of experience.

“On the other hand, it’s not normal for this to happen to a side wall,” added Ditchey, a former U.S. Navy pilot. “Someone is going to have to fix this airplane.”

James Wilson, of Kyle, Texas, said he and his fellow passengers knew there was a problem within minutes after takeoff from San Francisco. Wilson, 32, an amateur race car driver returning from a competition in Northern California, said they felt the fuselage violently shake and heard popping noises coming from outside of the plane as it made its initial ascent.

Then they watched in horror and screamed for the flight attendants to come as interior panels on both sides of the aircraft pulled apart from the walls.

“It was the whole Row 14 on all sides, from the floor to the ceiling,” said Wilson, who was seated in the row right behind and felt a change in cabin pressure. “It sounded like it was popping and banging so loud at first I thought stuff was coming out of the overhead compartments.”

Crew members were “pulling the panels apart and looking for daylight behind there,” he said.

Claude Debussy – Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp: make music part of your life series


Classical Music  Classical Music
Doriot Anthony Dwyer, flute.

Burton Fine, viola.
Ann Hobson, harp.

- Pastorale. Lento, dolce rubato.
- Interlude: Tempo di Minuetto.
- Finale. Allegro moderato ma risoluto.

Syrinx, for Flute solo. Doriot Anthony Dwyer, flute.

The Sonata for flute, viola and harp (French: Sonate pour flûte, alto, et harpe), L. 137, was written by Claude Debussy in 1915.
The first performance was a private one at the home of Jacques Durand, Debussy’s publisher, on December 10, 1916 and the first public performance was thought to be at a charity concert on March 9, 1917 (Walker, 1988). However, Thompson (1968) reported a performance of the sonata at London’s Aeolian Hall by Albert Fransella, H. Waldo Warner and Miriam Timothy on February 2, 1917 as part of a concert otherwise given by the London String Quartet.
According to Léon Vallas (1929, cited in Walker, 1988), Debussy initially planned this as a piece for flute, oboe and harp. He subsequently decided that the viola’s timbre would be a better combination for the flute than the oboe’s, so he changed the instrumentation to flute, viola and harp

About the WORK:
ETUDES SYMPHONIQUES op.13
————————–
[from Wikipedia, read more: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Symphoni...]
The first edition in 1837 carried an annotation that the tune was “the composition of an amateur”: this referred to the origin of the theme, which had been sent to Schumann by Baron von Fricken, guardian of Ernestine von Fricken, the Estrella of his Carnaval Op. 9. The baron, an amateur musician, had used the melody in a Theme with Variations for flute. Schumann had been engaged to Ernestine in 1834, only to break abruptly with her the year after. An autobiographical element is thus interwoven in the genesis of the Etudes Symphoniques (as in that of many other masterpieces of Schumann’s). * Theme – Andante * Etude I (Variation 1) – Un poco più vivo * Etude II (Variation 2) – Andante * Etude III – Vivace * Etude IV (Variation 3) – Allegro marcato * Etude V (Variation 4) – Scherzando * Etude VI (Variation 5) – Agitato * Etude VII (Variation 6) – Allegro molto * Etude VIII (Variation 7) – Sempre marcatissimo * Etude IX – Presto possible * Etude X (Variation 8) – Allegro con energia * Etude XI (Variation 9) – Andante espressivo * Etude XII (Finale) – Allegro brillante (based on Marschner’s theme).

Other titles had been considered in September 1834: Variations pathétiques and Etuden im Orchestercharakter von Florestan und Eusebius. In this latter case the Études would have been signed by two imaginary figures in whom Schumann personified two essential, opposite and complementary aspects of his own personality and his own poetic world. ‘Florestan and Eusebius’ then signed the Davidsbündlertänze, Op. 6; but only in the 1835 version of the Études symphoniques were the pieces divided so as to emphasize the alternation of more lyrical, melancholy and introvert pages (Eusebius) with those of a more excitable and dynamic nature (Florestan). In the 1837 version Florestan prevails.

Fifteen years later, in a second edition (Leipzig 1852), the 1837 title Etudes Symphoniques became Etudes en forme de variations, two studies (Nos. 3 and 9) that did not correspond to the new title (not being exactly variations) were eliminated, and some revisions were made in the piano writing.

The entire work was dedicated to Schumann’s English friend, the pianist and composer William Sterndale Bennett. Bennett played the piece frequently in England to great acclaim, but Schumann thought it was unsuitable for public performance and advised his wife Clara not to play it.
