Fats Domino – Jambalaya (If your feet become restless….well, it’s OK!)


Fats Domino – Hello Josephine (1970)


Corul Universitatii din Bucuresti – Tatal nostru – Ciprian Porumbescu (for a Sunday Afternoon)


Tatal nostru  
Care esti in ceruri
Sfinteasca-se numele Tau
Vie imparatia Ta
Faca-se voia Ta
Precum in cer asa si pre Pamant
Painea noastra cea de toate zilele 
Da-ne-o noua astazi
Si ne iarta noua gresalele noastre
Precum si noi iertam gresitilor nostri
Si nu ne duce pre noi in ispita
Ci ne izbaveste de cel rau
Ca a Ta este imparatia
Puterea si Slava
In numele Tatalui
Al Fiului 
Al Sfantului Duh
Amin.

Jiddu Krishnamurti (May 11, 1895 – February 17, 1986) was an Indian writer and speaker on philosophical and spiritual subjects. His subject matter included: psychological revolution, the nature of the mind, meditation, human relationships, and bringing about positive change in society. He constantly stressed the need for a revolution in the psyche of every human being and emphasized that such revolution cannot be brought about by any external entity, be it religious, political, or social.

Krishnamurti was born into a Telugu Brahmin family in what was then colonial India. In early adolescence, he had a chance encounter with prominent occultist and high-ranking theosophist Charles Webster Leadbeater in the grounds of the Theosophical Societyheadquarters at Adyar in Madras (now Chennai). He was subsequently raised under the tutelage of Annie Besant and Leadbeater, leaders of the Society at the time, who believed him to be a “vehicle” for an expected World Teacher. As a young man, he disavowed this idea and dissolved the worldwide organization (the Order of the Star) established to support it. He claimed allegiance to no nationality, caste, religion, or philosophy, and spent the rest of his life traveling the world, speaking to large and small groups and individuals. He authored many books, among them The First and Last Freedom, The Only Revolution, and Krishnamurti’s Notebook. Many of his talks and discussions have been published. His last public talk was in Madras, India, in January 1986, a month before his death at his home in Ojai, California.

His supporters, working through non-profit foundations in India, Great Britain and the United States, oversee several independent schools based on his views on education. They continue to transcribe and distribute his thousands of talks, group and individual discussions, and writings by use of a variety of media formats and languages.   (More)

Adam’s prayer  (poetic thought by George-B)

‘Eve,

I woke up this morning with pain
in my side – you weren’t there
I was alone,  in pain and I was cold –
in your convexity my painful concavity resides…

Please return my rib.

I miss you both,

Adam.’

Incredible Insect Discovered In New Zeeland 2011



A nature-lover has revealed how he spent two days tracking down a giant insect on a remote New Zealand island — and got it to eat a carrot out of his hand.

Mark Moffett‘s find is the world’s biggest insect in terms of weight, which at 71g is heavier than a sparrow and three times that of a mouse.

The 53-year-old former park ranger discovered the giant weta up a tree and his real life Bug‘s Bunny has now been declared the largest ever found.

He came across the cricket-like creature, which has a wing span of seven inches, after two days of searching on a tiny island.

The creepy crawly is only found on Little Barrier Island, in New Zealand, although there are 70 other types of smaller weta found throughout the country.

The giants of the species were wiped off the mainland by rats accidentally introduced by Europeans.

After Mark found the female weta he fed it the carrot before putting it back where he found her.

Mark, 53, said: ‘Three of us walked the trails of this small island for two nights scanning the vegetation for a giant weta.

‘We spent many hours with no luck finding any at all, before we saw her up in a tree.

‘The giant weta is the largest insect in the world, and this is the biggest one ever found, she weighs the equivalent to three mice.

‘She enjoyed the carrot so much she seemed to ignore the fact she was resting on our hands and carried on munching away.

‘She would have finished the carrot very quickly, but this is an extremely endangered species and we didn’t want to risk indigestion.

‘After she had chewed a little I took this picture and we put her right back where we found her.’

Mark, from Colorado, America, added: ‘We bug lovers hear a lot of people who think insects are inferior in some way because of their size, so it was great to see such a big insect.

‘This became all the more amazing when we realized that this was the largest insect recorded.’ Copyright Of Pictures Owned By Mark Moffett.

BLACK MAMBA’S DEADLY VENOM POTENT PAINKILLER


Black Mamba’s Deadly Venom Potent Painkiller

The venom of Africa’s lethal black mamba could be the key to producing a painkiller as potent as morphine but with fewer unwanted side-effects. Scientists were able to isolate pain-relieving proteins called mambalgins from the snake’s venom and found them to be an effective painkiller in mice. Humans and mice have fairly similar pain pathways, leading researchers to believe that mambalgins would produce a similar effect if administered to people. More…

MYCOLOGY


 

Mycology

It is estimated that there are 1.5 million species of fungus on Earth, only a fraction of which have yet been described. The study of fungi, called mycology, has important applications in the dairy, wine, and baking industries, as well as in the production of dyes and inks. Fungi can cause diseases, but can also be medically beneficial. Mycological research has led to the development of such antibiotics as penicillin and tetracycline.
