today’s holiday: Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival


Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival

A festival of seafood, folk culture, sports, and pageants, the Boggy Bayou Mullet Festival has been held since 1976 in Niceville, Florida, to celebrate the unappreciated mullet, the underdog of seafood. The festival serves up 10 tons of fried and smoked mullet, plus it features beauty pageants, entertainment on stage all weekend, and arts and crafts on display. Beyond the mullet, food booths offer Cajun specialties like crawfish pie, gumbo, and gator sausage; American Indian staples of fried bread and pasole; barbecued rabbit; and stingray on a stick.

No Apology, But Acknowledgement of Failings from Facebook

Facebook faced widespread backlash earlier this year, after admitting that it had, without consent, manipulated the news feeds of hundreds of thousands of users in an experiment on human emotion. It has since been several months, and Facebook has apparently ruminated on the matter. While stopping short of apologizing for its actions, the social media giant has acknowledged failings in the way it carried out the research and released the results. More… Discuss

Netiquette


Netiquette

Had early 20th-century etiquette expert Emily Post had access to the Internet, she certainly would have had some choice words for today’s Web users—and they would not have included profanity. The idea that cussing on the Net is poor form is just one part of “netiquette“—the Internet’s informal code of manners. Typing ENTIRELY IN UPPER CASE is also generally frowned upon, as it is considered akin to shouting. A good rule of thumb is “Think before you post.” What is the Eternal September? More… Discuss

CALENDAR ORTODOX — SFINTII ZILEI VIETILE SFINTILOR — SINAXAR 10 August


Sinaxar 10 August

În aceasta luna, în ziua a zecea, pomenirea Sfintilor Mucenici Lavrentie (Laurentiu) arhidiaconul, Xist (Sixt), papa Romei, si Ipolit.

Lavrentie arhidiaconulSfântul Sixt (sau Xist) era grec din nastere si studiase filozofia la Atena inainte de a veni sa se instaleze la Roma sub domnia imparatului Valerian in vremea pontificatului Sfântului Stefan I (253-257, praznuit la 3 august). Mai intii favorabil crestinilor, imparatul – care cazuse sub influenta magilor si ghicitorilor egipteni dupa o nefericita expeditie in Orient – publica un edict interzicând practicarea in public a cultului crestin si cerea tuturor clericilor sa se inchine zeilor, amenintându-i cu exilul in caz contrar. Sfântul Stefan fusese una dintre primele victime ale acestei persecutii iar Sixt fu consacrat pentru a-i succeda. Persecutia spori atunci si fu decretata executia Episcopilor, Preotilor si Diaconilor in baza simplei constatari a identitatii lor, in timp ce laicii urmau sa fie condamnati injosirii si muncilor fortate. Sfântul Sixt fu atunci arestat si condus, dupa un prim interogatoriu, la renumita inchisoare Mamertine (n. tr. : unde au fost inchisi si Sfintii Apostoli Petru si Pavel). Pe drum, Arhidiaconul sau Lavrentie il intâlni si ii spuse in lacrimi : “Unde te duci, Parinte, fara fiul tau ? Ce jertfa te pregatesti sa aduci fara Diaconul tau ? M-ai gasit cumva nedemn de aceasta ? Vei refuza tu sa-ti fie alaturi pentru a-si varsa sângele pe cel pe care l-ai primit intru Sfintele Taine ?”. Episcopul ii raspunse : “Nu fiule, nu te parasesc, dar lupte inca si mai mari te asteapta. Noi, ca batrânii, ne-am angajat intr-o lupta usoara. Dar pe tine, tânar viguros, te asteapta o victorie si mai plina de glorie asupra tiranului. Nu mai plânge. Peste trei zile Diaconul ii va urma Preotului”. Si inainte de a-i da sarutul pacii, ii incredinta administrarea in numele sau a bunurilor Bisericii. Lavrentie isi indeplini pe data sarcina dupa voia lui Dumnezeu, impartind bogatiile Bisericii la clerici si la saraci. Pe muntele Coelius intâlni o vaduva, ce se numea Domnita, care ascundea pe multi crestini. Profita de intunericul noptii pentru a le aduce bani si haine si trecea apoi din casa in  casa, vindecând pe bolnavi si spalând picioarele credinciosilor, asemeni Domnului.

Cum Papa fusese condamnat sa i se taie capul pe Via Appia, Sfântul Lavrentie ii iesi in cale si ii striga : “Nu ma lasa, Parinte Sfânt, pentru ca am impartit deja comorile pe care mi le-ai incredintat”. Auzind vorbindu-se de comori, soldatii il prinsera imediat si pe Lavrentie si il dusera in fata tribunului Partenius care il instiinta pe imparat. Aruncat in inchisoare si dat in paza tribunului Ipolit, Sfântul Lavrentie vindeca prin rugaciunea sa si aduse la credinta pe un orb numit Lucillus. Auzind vestea, alti numerosi orbi alergara la el si fura cu totii vindecati de catre sfânt, care in plus il boteza pe Ipolit impreuna cu celelalte nouasprezece persoane ce se aflau in casa lui…(continua aici)

Asternuta pe fata pergamentului cu lacrima uda, pusa la uscat…
Cenusa ce pastreaza taina pentru totdeauna,

Jimmy Neesham’s bat drilled with holes by US customs officials

New Zealand all-rounder Jimmy Neesham had holes drilled into his bat by United States customs officials during an apparent drugs search.

Jimmy Neesham bat

Neesham’s bat showed at least four holes following its brush with customs officials

Neesham, 23, was travelling in America with Caribbean Premier League side Guyana Amazon Warriors when his bat was inspected on Thursday.

The ruined bat was returned to Neesham, who posted a picture of it on Twitter. 

“Imagine if your gear went through America and they drilled holes in your bat to look for drugs,” he said.

There is no suggestion Neesham, who has played four Tests and 11 one-day internationals, was under any suspicion by the customs officials.

While the bat is unlikely to be swung in anger again, it may yet have a future as a museum piece.

Why all the struggle? poetic thought by George-B (©Always)

Do we really want change, 
do we really need it: 
when brought about by…
The king of darkness?
Can’t we do with things the way they are,
slowly dissolving into the ocean of time?
Just evolving into involution,
return to the wisdom of the cave dwellers,
Before fire was noticed by the clan chief?
Isn’t that satisfying enough?
Why all the struggle?

Cuvinte, cugetare poetica de George-B

Am deschis sertarul de cuvinte
Si-n gramada amestecata am cules
La intamplare,
cu maini avide de… cuvinte

alunecoase,
grele,
fierbinti
fulgeratoare
ude
sarate
amare
albastre
negre
cenusii
neajutorate
la intamplare
cele mai multe s-au scurs
printer degete, ca nisipurile fine ale plajii Mamaiei…
Am asezat cuvintele ce n-au fugit
Si-am contruit o casa de cuvinte,
Si-am folosit ca armature seara far-de luna
Iar drept coperis am pus de straja firmamentul
Fiind foarte obosit, dupa asa de multa munca-am
Adormit, in casa de cuvinte,
avand drept coperis…tot firmamentul

Credinta nu-i oarba:
Ea are un ochi ascuns, inautrul fiintei
de vede tot ce va sa fie…
E doar un suspin, fara alinare,
Sau poate un respir putin prea scurt,
ce parca cere mai mult,
un cascat, un pic de aer mai mult…

precum un magnet nevazut,
un instinct indrumator,
un memento in DNA, cine stie cat de batran…

Listen to all the extracts from “Visioni”: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?featu…

SFEM and Enrica Ciccarelli were originally brought together by a shared passion for music and uncompromising quality: this is the basis of their artistic marriage.

The resulting project, involving SFEM’s Team and italian Pianist Enrica Ciccarelli kicked off in 2011 and aims to reissue some of Enrica’s earlier recordings, as well as new ones, especially arranged for this series and coproduced by Musicassoluta.

Since May 2013, when the project was officially presented at La Scala Shop in Milan, the first two recordings are available in shops and on Amazon.

This is an extrat from “Visioni”.
The two sections of this cd are entirely different and yet connected.

Schumann’s Kreisleriana is the musical expression of a delirious world of madness and desperate obsessions, hallucinations and shattered emotions. Imprisoned by the sheer force of its own genius, the composer’s mind swings wildly between opposite extremes, at times feverish or resigned, dreamy or terrified, tormented by nightmarish visions.

Mussorgsky‘s Pictures at an Exhibition are not as frightening or intimidating and yet they are vivid images that come to life in music These images, though, are more firmly rooted in the real world. Hartmann’s drawings provided the inspiration for this collection: Mussorgsky shaped them into sound, conjuring up an exhibition of musical portraits. Visual perceptions occasion intimate reflections on life, death and art.
