3rd of 4 parts. The Midnight resurrection rite. This brief film shows the color and physicality of the Eastern Rite which is quite different from Western Church services. Over 1500 Greeks attended, so many that the service is both outside and inside the Cathedral. Directed and filmed by Nikolas Hronis. Visit http://www.StSophia.org for more info.
Despite the conversion of her father, King James II, to Roman Catholicism, Mary was raised Protestant, a fact that would become important in her later life. In 1688, English nobles opposed to James’s pro-Catholic policies overthrew him and selected Mary and her husband, William of Orange, to rule in his place. Mary enjoyed great popularity as co-ruler of England, but her personal life was full of hardship. What were some of the major sources of unhappiness in her life? More… Discuss
One thousand seven years ago, observers in China, Egypt, Iraq, Japan, and Switzerland recorded a new object in the sky. It was hard to miss. Scientists now believe SN 1006 was the brightest supernova in recorded human history. It was described by ancient astronomers as being low on the horizon but shining about half or a quarter as bright as the Moon. It could sometimes be seen during daylight hours and may have been bright enough to read by at night. How far was it from Earth? More…Discuss

Researchers say drinking 8 ounces (250 ml) of beet juice can reduce high blood pressure by 10mm of mercury within hours. Nitrate drugs are used in the treatment ofangina pectoris—chest pain resulting from insufficient blood supply to the heart—and the nitrate that is naturally present in beets is likely responsible for the edible root’s blood pressure-lowering power. It remains to be seen if regular consumption of nitrate-rich produce like beets improves long-term cardiovascular health. More… Discuss

The Traitor_Martha Wainwright_Leonard Cohen_I’m Your Man- “Now the Swan Has floated on the English River…”
Send “The Traitor” Ringtone to your Cell
Now the Swan it floated on the English river
Ah the Rose of High Romance it opened wide
A sun tanned woman yearned me through the summer
and the judges watched us from the other side
I told my mother “Mother I must leave you
preserve my room but do not shed a tear
Should rumour of a shabby ending reach you
it was half my fault and half the atmosphere”
But the Rose I sickened with a scarlet fever
and the Swan I tempted with a sense of shame
She said at last I was her finest lover
and if she withered I would be to blame
The judges said you missed it by a fraction
rise up and brace your troops for the attack
Ah the dreamers ride against the men of action
Oh see the men of action falling back
But I lingered on her thighs a fatal moment
I kissed her lips as though I thirsted still
My falsity had stung me like a hornet
The poison sank and it paralysed my will
I could not move to warn all the younger soldiers
that they had been deserted from above
So on battlefields from here to Barcelona
I’m listed with the enemies of love
And long ago she said “I must be leaving,
Ah but keep my body here to lie upon
You can move it up and down and when I’m sleeping
Run some wire through that Rose and wind the Swan”
So daily I renew my idle duty
I touch her here and there — I know my place
I kiss her open mouth and I praise her beauty
and people call me traitor to my face
From Leonard Cohen: “It was called “The Traitor”. It was about the feeling that we have of betraying some mission that we were mandated to fulfill, and being unable to fulfill it, and then coming to understand that the real mandate was not to fulfill it, and that the deeper courage was to stand guiltless in the predicament in which you found yourself”.
Leonard Cohen- Order of the Unified Heart-Nihil Obstat “Much Later” from The Book of Longing, page 131 It’s about Ray Charles)
Ray Charles was the greatest rhythm and blues singer of all time. In 1962 he released his critically acclaimed album, Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music, on ABC-Paramount Records, which was #1 on the Billboard Pop Album chart for 14 weeks and remained on that chart for two years. “You Win Again” is from this great album.

In his rise to fame, Motown legend Marvin Gaye paired with a number of female vocalists. Among them was the young Tammi Terrell, with whom Gaye recorded several hit duets, including “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough.” During a 1967 performance, Terrell collapsed on stage and was discovered to have a brain tumor. Despite several operations, Terrell died at the age of 24, and Gaye took a lengthy hiatus from performing. Whose vocals were rumored to have replaced Terrell’s on her final album with Gaye?

Before dawn on April 29, 1903, millions of tons of limestone tumbled from the face of Alberta’s Turtle Mountain onto the valley below, burying several buildings on the outskirts of the coal mining town of Frank. Though dozens were killed, only a handful of bodies were recovered from the debris. Scientists believe the slide was caused by a number of factors and speculate that another slide will likely occur. What legends about the slide arose in its aftermath and continue to persist today? More… Discuss

Antibiotic overuse is a major cause of antibiotic resistance, but that is not deterring US doctors from prescribing enough antibiotics to dose four out of five Americans each year. In 2010, 258 million courses of antibiotics were prescribed by US doctors. Geography may play influence the frequency with which doctors prescribe these drugs. The states of West Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, for example, averaged 1,200prescriptions for every 1,000 people, whereas Alaska, Oregon, and California had 600 or fewer. More… Discuss

Her skin was tight, her manner was free
She gave me that look that seemed to say:
“Hey you, look at me!”
Her smile was crooked and good
As she sucked her Capri
And I thought:
“My god, why shouldn’t it be me?”
C’mon, c’mon, c’mon, c’mon god
Why shouldn’t it be me?
Her body was free!
Don’t tell me what’s proper
Anyone can see
I wasn’t even her first, so don’t blame it on me
She was so pretty, as pretty as can be
And I thought:
“My god, why shouldn’t it be me?”
Oh c’mon, just this once, lord!
Why shouldn’t it be me?
Her body was free!
You know what the bible says?
I’ll tell you what it says
“Don’t put a stumbling block in front of someone who can’t see
Don’t put a beautiful body in front of someone who’s hungry,”
She was so pretty
As pretty as can be
And I thought:
“My god, why shouldn’t it be me?”
C’mon lord, why shouldn’t it be me?

Indeed, it’s worth it!
Now that some of my readers have twisted my arm and have me firmly on the cellphone bandwagon, I may as well tell you about something unique that can make your simple old cellphone camera lens work as good as that on proper professional quality digital slr cameras.
You see, the lens that’s fitted to all cellphone cameras is a simple affair, designed to give good all-round performance rather than provide high level parameters in niche areas, such as macro, telephoto etc. Rather like the difference between a Ford designed for road use and another Ford designed for Formula 1…both are Fords, but the difference is staggering!

In January 1953, a plot to murder leading Soviet government and party officials was “uncovered.” Nine prominent doctors, at least six of them Jews, were arrested and confessed their involvement. The reports sparked an upwelling of anti-Semitism in the USSR. Months later, news broke that the charges were false and that the confessions had been obtained by torture. Who alleged that Stalin, whose death in March brought down the scheme, had planned to use the scandal to launch a massive party purge? More… Discuss

Stop killing our bees!
Protest by beekeepers and members of the public against DEFRA minister Owen Paterson’s opposition to a proposed EU ban on the use of neonicotinoid pesticides, which many leading scientists (including those on the House of Commons’ own Environmental Audit Committee) believe is killing bees in alarming numbers. The protest was organised by Avaaz, 38 Degrees and several other organisations, who have been campaigning on the issue for many months, with public petitions in support of a ban on neonicotinoids already reaching over 2.6 million (Avaaz) and 300,000 (38 Degrees) signatures.

Kent Micronite cigarette Filter: Crocidolite (blue Asbestos) also used in the US GOVERNMENT MILITARY GAS MASK FILTER MEDIUM
Published on Jan 27, 2013
The original version of the Kent Micronite cigarette filter used crocidolite, a form of asbestos, from 1952 until at least mid-1956. Kent’s manufacturer, P. Lorillard Company, boasted that the filter was made of the same “pure,” “safe,” “dust-free” substance used to clean air in atomic energy plants and hospital operating rooms, and offered smokers “the greatest health protection ever” in a cigarette. The new brand was introduced with great fanfare in 1952. “The filtering material — a top wartime secret — represented the greatest scientific advance ever made in cleansing air of impurities,” stated one of the advertisements, prepared by Young & Rubicam. The trade magazine Advertising Age awarded Lorillard its “hard sell” award for the campaign. Other advertisements, including a series placed in the Journal of the American Medical Association and the New England Journal of Medicine, stressed the “health protection” Kents gave. Lorillard set up Kent displays at medical conventions and sent cartons of Kents to thousands of doctors and dentists. Some ads suggested that the A.M.A. had endorsed the Micronite filter, a claim the medical group promptly labeled “a most reprehensible instance of hucksterism.” Dr. Harold Knudson was the former vice president and research director of Hollingsworth & Vose. He designed the Micronite filter for Kent cigarettes. This is compiled from two videos from the University of California, San Francisco Tobacco Control Archives Multimedia Collection (http://archive.org/details/tobaccoarc… ). This collection contains audiotapes and videotapes related to the advertising, manufacturing, marketing, sales, and scientific research of tobacco products as well as materials gathered and produced by tobacco control advocates. For current information, contact ADAO – Asbestos Disease Awareness Organization – an independent organization founded by Linda Reinstein and Doug Larkin in 2004. ADAO seeks to give asbestos victims and concerned citizens a united voice to raise public awareness about the dangers of asbestos exposure. ADAO is an independent global organization dedicated to preventing asbestos-related diseases through education, advocacy and community. ADAO’s mission includes supporting global advocacy and advancing asbestos awareness, prevention, early detection, treatment, and resources for asbestos-related disease.

Remember the past here on EuZicAsa. The past is key to understanding our station in life, today. There no way things change just by witnessing life as a spectator.
Myron Leon “Mike” Wallace (May 9, 1918 – April 7, 2012) was an American journalist, game show host, actor andmedia personality. He interviewed a wide range of prominent newsmakers during his sixty-year career. He was one of the original correspondents for CBS‘ 60 Minutes which debuted in 1968. Wallace retired as a regular full-time correspondent in 2006, but still appeared occasionally on the series until 2008.
Wallace, whose family’s surname was originally Wallik, was born in Brookline, Massachusetts to Russian Jewish immigrant parents, Frank and Zina (Sharfman) Wallace. His father was a grocer and insurance broker.Wallace attended Brookline High School, graduating in 1935. He graduated from the University of Michigan four years later with a Bachelor of Arts. While a college student he was a reporter for the Michigan Daily and belonged to the Alpha Gamma Chapter of the Zeta Beta Tau Fraternity.
Representing her native Netherlands, Blankers-Koen made her Olympic debut at the 1936 Berlin Games but failed to medal. Two years later, she set her first world record in track and field. Unfortunately for her, both the 1940 and 1944 Games were cancelled due to WWII, so she had to wait until 1948’s Summer Games in London to compete again. In addition to losing precious years, the athlete gave birth twice in the interim. Still, she went on to win four gold medals in London, earning what nickname? More… Discuss
The disco craze was relatively short-lived, beginning in the mid-1970s and fading by the 1980s, yet it had a lasting influence on the music scene. A beat-driven style of dance music, disco got its name from the “discotheque,” the type of nightclub where it originated. No discotheque was more central to disco than Studio 54, the Manhattan club famous for its mix of celebrities, beautiful people, and hedonism. The club paralleled disco’s demise and closed in 1980.

The black diamond, a family heirloom, is valued at $14.5 million. The man tasked with crafting the phone had previously designed a $9 million iPhone as well as a solid gold iPad. More… Discuss
The idea of using “tracked” roads dates back millennia. In the US and England, the first railroads employed not locomotives but horse-drawn wagons, which were used to haul minerals on the tracks. In 1829, locomotives were imported to the US from England, but they were found to be too heavy for the existing tracks. However, steam powered railroads soon grew to dominate the transportation of cargo. How did horses continue to be used by railroads after the advent of steam locomotives? More… Discuss
