Oahu

Two large volcanoes and the plain between them make up Oahu, the third largest and most densely populated Hawaiian island, nicknamed the “Gathering Place.” Honolulu, Hawaii’s state capital and main deepwater marine port, occupies the southeast end of the island, not far from Pearl Harbor, while the North Shore possesses some of the world’s most renowned surfing spots. Oahu draws around five million visitors each year. Instead of cardinal directions, locals use what terms to describe locations?More… Discuss

ARTICLE: MESSIER OBJECTS


Messier Objects

In 1784, French astronomer Charles Messier compiled a list of non-stellar celestial objects. He had no understanding of what these items—now known to be galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters—actually were; he just wanted to further the search for comets by listing the indistinct objects that might be mistaken for them. Designations from his catalog are still used to refer to some nebulae and star clusters—for instance, M1 is the Crab Nebula and M45 is the Pleiades. What is a “Messier Marathon“? More… Discuss

Great compositions/Performances: Bach: Cantata, BWV 147, Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring


Great compositions/Performances: Bach: Cantata, BWV 147, Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring is the most common English title of the 10th and last movement of the cantata Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben, BWV 147 (“Heart and Mouth and Deed and Life”), composed by Johann Sebastian Bach in 1716 and 1723. Written during his first year in Leipzig, Germany, this chorale movement is one of Bach’s most enduring works.

Jesu, joy of man’s desiring,

Holy wisdom, love most bright;

Drawn by Thee, our souls aspiring

Soar to uncreated light.

Word of God, our flesh that fashioned,

With the fire of life impassioned,

Striving still to truth unknown,

Soaring, dying round Thy throne.

Through the way where hope is guiding,

Hark, what peaceful music rings;

Where the flock, in Thee confiding,

Drink of joy from deathless springs.

Theirs is beauty’s fairest pleasure;

Theirs is wisdom’s holiest treasure.

Thou dost ever lead Thine own

In the love of joys unknown.

Enjoy, It’s all good!

Brilliant Compositions: Ravel’s Empress of the Pagodas – Christopher Parkening



This is Ravel‘s “Empress of the Pagodas” played by Christopher Parkening from the great CD: “The Artistry of Christopher Parkening”. Many thanks to ‘Music Publishing Rights Collecting Society‘ for graciously allowing this amazing recording to be shared world wide!

From wikipedia:

 

Soirée donnée par Éva Gauthier pour l'annivers...

 

“Ravel originally wrote Ma mère l’oye as a piano duet for the Godebski children, Mimi and Jean, ages 6 and 7. Ravel dedicated this work for four hands to the children (just as he had dedicated an earlier work, Sonatine to their parents). Jeanne Leleu and Geneviève Durony premiered the work.”

“The Green Serpent (a green dragon, known as

 

Dragon Green

 

Serpentin Vert in French), is a French fairy tale written by Marie Catherine d’Aulnoy, popular in its day and representative of European folklore, that was published in her book New Tales, or Fairies in Fashion (Contes Nouveaux ou Les Fées à la Mode), in 1698. The serpent is representative of a European dragon. His description is: “he has green wings, a many-coloured body, ivory jaws, fiery eyes, and long, bristling hair.”

The Green Dragon is really a handsome king placed under a spell for seven years by Magotine a wicked fairy. In many ways the tale is based on the story of Eros and Psyche, to which the narration pays conscious homage when referring to the “discovery” of the Green Dragon.”

Ce-i lipseste pozei, de George-B


Ce-i lipseste pozei, de George-B 

Daca imaginile ar avea cuvinte,
ne-ar povesti de frig si cald,
de soarele ascuns de arbori,
de soarele privind prin brazi
de apa sipotind de-undeva,
nu prea departe, destul sa fie nevazuta…

Aroma ierbii, de abia cosita si
rasfirata ca sa se usuce,
si vantul fîlfîind prin ramuri si frunze-toate
ne-ar privi din cadrul unei poze…

Art Talk with George Eastman House



The Moving Image Collection at George Eastman House in Rochester, NY, is one of the major moving image archives in the United States. In this Art Talk, get a glimpse into the life of a film archivist as members of Eastman House’s Moving Image Department will be discussing the lesser known films of American cinema: films that exist but have fallen out of the public eye. Often called ‘orphan films,’ these films tend to be left out of the spotlight for more well-known titles made in Hollywood. What causes this to happen includes such factors as: studio closings, unknown copyright holders, non-famous actors, etc. Are films made today at risk to this type of obscurity? Using one film in particular to highlight this case: The Sign of the Cucumber (1917), they will explain what this film is about, who made it, the stars and what is being done to keep it in the public eye.

Law’s Expanded Medicaid Coverage Brings a Surge in Sign-Ups – NYTimes.com


America ranks near the bottom of developed countries in health and longevity, and many public health experts believe that improving that ranking will be impossible without paying more attention to poor Americans. It is still an open question whether access to health insurance will improve the health of the disadvantaged in the long run, experts say, but the men and women getting the coverage here say the mere fact of having it has drastically improved their mental health.”

TODAY’S HOLIDAY: ST. KNUT’S DAY


St. Knut’s Day

The feast day of King Canute (or Knut), who ruled Denmark, England, and Norway in the 11th century, marks the end of the Yuletide season in Sweden. Rather than letting the holidays fade quietly, Swedish families throughout the country hold parties to celebrate the final lighting (and subsequent dismantling) of the Christmas tree. After letting the children eat the cookies and candies used to decorate the tree, and after packing the ornaments away in their boxes, it is customary to hurl the tree through an open window. More…
