Dvorak: Legends Op. 59 (Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, David Zinman conductor)


 

A set of 10 rather light but very evocative orchestral pieces. They were originally written for piano duets and orchestrated a few months later. I enjoy the original version too, but I think the orchestra’s wider range of tone color do enhance the pieces quite a lot.

No. 1: Allegretto (0:09)
No. 2: Molto moderato (3:45)
No. 3: Allegro giusto – Andante – Allegro giusto (8:09)
No. 4: Molto maestoso (12:23)
No. 5: Allegro giusto (18:41)
No. 6: Allegro con moto – Moderato – Tempo I (23:10)
No. 7: Allegro grazioso – Poco piu mosso – Tempo I (28:15)
No. 8: Un poco allegretto grazioso (31:03)
No. 9: Andante con moto (34:50)
No. 10: Andante (37:33)

Kiteboarding a Salt Island



Perfect sunshine and winds between 15 and 20 knots are usually the recipe for just another training day in the life of PKRA Freestyle World Champion Bruna Kajiya, but on the last week of September 2012, Bruna took on a unique challenge 13 kilometers away from the coast of Rio Grande do Norte state in Northeastern Brazil: kiteboarding on a salt island. Bruna was joined by fellow Brazilian standout Reno Romeu as the pair tackled the Agua Branca Salt Terminal, a trading post through which over 2 million tons of salt are commercialized every year. The glistening crystalline surface providing a kiteboarding medium unlike any other, and challenged these world class kiteboarders to adapt and conquer the new terrain. ___________________________________________________________

Land    (poetic thought by George-G)

You bring the best in me

I’d grow a red beard, and wear an eye patch (over)

a good eye

get the scariest of tattoo, right over my –

your name is on it for ten thousand years

and eternity – you’re smiling –

oh yes, you think, I wouldn’t wear a hook on my good hand

and wear a 30lb sword for you?

All for you, I’ll sing your song, and carry your flag…

Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II Is Excommunicated (1227)

Prior to being excommunicated the first of several times, Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II had planned to go on a crusade. However, an epidemic waylaid him and a large part of his army, delaying the conquest. As a result, he was excommunicated by Pope Gregory IX. He eventually went on the postponed crusade and became king of Jerusalem. With Italy as the center of his power, Frederick, a religious skeptic, was in frequent conflict with the papacy. Frederick wrote the first book on what subject? More… Discuss

 

CENTENARIAN’S RIDE OF THE CENTURY


Centenarian’s Ride of the Century

French centenarian and former fireman Robert Marchand rode his way into the record books for a second time on Friday, completing a 100-kilometer (62-mile) bike ride in just 4 hours, 17 minutes, and 27 seconds. He averaged 23.3 km/h (14.5 mph) for the duration of his record-setting ride. In February, Marchand set the world hour record for his age group. The cyclist’s longevity and vitality have caught the interest of scientists, who now examine him regularly in the hopes of learning the secret to his long, active life. Marchand turns 101 in November. More… Discuss

HENRY V


 

Henry V

Determined to regain the lands in France once held by his ancestors, King Henry V of England rekindled the Hundred Years’ War and all but conquered France. His continuing victories—including his stunning success at the Battle of Agincourt—forced the French to sign a 1420 treaty naming him heir to the throne. However, he died two months before the French king and thus did not inherit the crown. At 16, Henry was shot in the face with an arrow. How did his physician remove it and save his life? More…Discuss
