New at euzicasa: The Google Art Project Widget


GoogleArtProject

GoogleArtProject (click to access the Art)

When you search the sidebar you will find among many other links of interest a link (widget) to your favorite art gallery, artist, painting, and (which is quite unique) fine details of each painting featured down to brush stroke, and micro cracks in the oil paint and colors, literally unmatched yet details at very high resolution, which you would not be able to approach as a visitor in the art gallery. Visit this platform for art, share it at your turn, teach it to your students if you are  a teacher, with your elderly, if you are a instructor.

Art is universal, so it benefits everyone!

The true riches of Humanity is knowledge  and the way in which we choose to make it available to all members of the human race!  (George-B)

‘Apocalyptic’ island of waste in the Maldives (from BBC) (Click to access BBC Report)

 

From the report:  ‘The Maldives are known as an unspoilt, paradise island destination for upmarket tourists but the BBC’s Simon Reeve has paid a visit to a part of the Maldives that tourists do not see – a huge island waste dump.

He was accompanied by local conservationist Marie Saleem who explained how the country struggles with waste management.

The Maldives’ government told the BBC they were looking at ways to tackle their waste problem.’

The Dream
Melody by Karl Muller
Lyricist: Fredericka Bremer

I dream I dream of my Fatherland,
As fancy my slumber beguiles
Where the spell of beuty each heart enthralls,
Where the home of my childhood smiles.
Ah! yes! I dream of wealth and pow’r
The wildest of visions could will.
But I wake to the truth in affection’s hour,
of the heart that loves me still.

I dream I dream of my Fatherland,
I dream of my Fatherland.
I dream of dream of my Fatherland,
I dream of my Fatherland.

I dream of bright eyes where affection beams,
While thine shall with pleasure be bright.
And hearts that realize fancy’s dreams
While thine is with happiness light.
Many while fortune her gifts hath spread,
Around me are slaves of my will.
But there is one when all shall have fled
That will Love me Love me still.

I dream, I dream of my Fatherland,
I dream of my Fatherland,
I dream, I dream of my Fatherland,
I dream of my Fatherland,

Jenny Lind’s Song No. 1. The Dream.

TODAY’S BIRTHDAY: JOHANNA “JENNY” MARIA LIND (1820) -Virginia Bruce as Janny Lind (1934)


Johanna “Jenny” Maria Lind (1820)

One of the greatest coloratura sopranos of her time, Lind was a Swedish opera star who caused a sensation touring Europe. Her fame led American showman P.T. Barnum to use his innovative publicity techniques to arrange a hugely successful 1850 US tour for her. Hans Christian Andersen once fell in love with her and wrote “The Nightingale” in her honor, leading to her nickname, “The Swedish Nightingale.” A clipper ship and a class of locomotive were named for Lind, as was what piece of furniture? More… Discuss

Egyptian President Anwar Sadat Is Assassinated (1981)

As president, Sadat led Egypt in a 1973 war with Israel that bolstered his popularity throughout the Arab world, even though the war was a military loss. However, after he negotiated a peace treaty with Israel in the Camp David Accords—an initiative for which he shared a Nobel Peace Prize—his popularity in the Arab world plummeted. During an annual military parade, he was ambushed and killed by extremists. What three people made a rare simultaneous appearance at his funeral? More… Discuss

 

GREAT BARRIER REEF’S CORAL CRISIS; The Beatles – Help


Great Barrier Reef’s Coral Crisis

In less than three decades, the Great Barrier Reef, considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world, has lost half of its coral cover. Experts attribute the losses largely to tropical cyclones and outbreaks of coral-eating crown-of-thorns starfishCoral bleachingdue to ocean warming also played a role, though a relatively minor one. Given some time, damaged reefs can generally recover, but current intervals between these disturbances are too brief to allow for meaningful recovery, resulting in long-term losses. More… Discuss

If the coral could talk, or sing, i  guess this is how it would sound like:

PENNY-FARTHING


 

Penny-Farthing

Popular in the 1880s, prior to the development of the so-called safety bicycle, the penny-farthing was an early bicycle with a large front wheel and a comparatively tiny rear one. Perched on a seat above the front wheel, the rider was unable to touch the ground with his or her feet. “Taking a header” was a constant danger, so some riders put their feet over the handlebars when coasting downhill to ensure that any fall forward would be feetfirst. How did one go about mounting such a contraption? More… Discuss
