Whistleblowers are criminals and perjury is now simply a faux pas. Apparently the Government is now above the law and Rule of Law in the US is dead…….


I guess now we’re going to have all the whistles confiscated (once they were the only protection police officers had), and we will be the first nation in the developed world with a ban on whistles and whistling…Yeah, well what about baseball, and football ( no no soccer), how can you play with no whistle?

US director of national intelligence James Clapper has sent a letter to senators in which he apologizes for providing “erroneous” information on NSA data collection, but the director is still under scrutiny for his inconsistent statements.

In late June, Clapper wrote a letter to the Senate Intelligence Committee to correct his response to a question he was asked during a March 12 hearing. When asked by Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.) whether the National Security Agency “collected data on millions of Americans,” Clapper lied to Congress and said the NSA does not do this.

“No, sir, not wittingly. There are cases where they could inadvertently, perhaps, collect, but not wittingly,” he said in March. But after NSA leaker Edward Snowden revealed the NSA’s…

Today’s Birthday: KÄTHE KOLLWITZ (1867)


Käthe Kollwitz (1867)

Kollwitz was a German Expressionist painter, sculptor, and printmaker whose work centered on human suffering. Her initial focus was the plight of the poor, whom she encountered firsthand at her physician husband’s clinic in Berlin. After their son died in World War I, however, Kollwitz channeled her depression into a cycle of prints emphasizing a mother’s love and a memorial sculpture of grieving parents. Unfortunately, many of Kollwitz’s drawings and prints were lost in 1943 when what happened? More… Discuss

US Air Force Claims to Have Recovered a Flying Disc (1947)

On July 8, 1947, an officer at the Roswell Army Air Field in New Mexico announced the recovery of a crashed flying disc, prompting the Roswell Daily Record to proclaim the “capture” of a “flying saucer.” The next day, the official story changed—the debris was now simply a weather balloon. The case was ignored until 1978 when supposed witness testimony emerged, shaping the event as an alien encounter. A government investigation discredited this theory, explaining the “aliens” as what? More… Discuss

Race and Income Appear to Affect Painkiller Prescribing Practices

In the US, a patient visiting an emergency room with a complaint of moderate or severe pain is more likely to leave with a prescription for opioid drugs if he or she is white and wealthy. An analysis of data from about 184 million emergency room visits between 2006 and 2009 revealed that black and Hispanic patients were prescribed these painkillers less frequently than white patients and that patients from poorer neighborhoods were less likely to receive opioids than those from more affluent areas. More… Discuss

 

MIDDENS


Middens

Also known as a kitchen midden or shell mound, a midden is a refuse heap containing the waste products of day-to-day human life left by a prehistoric settlement. Often found in coastal environments, middens were first studied in Denmark in 1848. Because their contents include artifacts that can be dated, they help archaeologists to determine the mode of life and technology of ancient peoples, typically from the late Mesolithic period. How do middens help to preserve the materials they contain? More… Discuss

Franz Liszt – Hungarian Rhapsody No. 9 in E-flat major “Pesther Carneval”


Franz Liszt (October 22, 1811 — July 31, 1886) was a 19th-century Hungarian composer, pianist, conductor, and teacher.

Liszt became renowned throughout Europe during the nineteenth century for his virtuosic skill as a pianist. He was said by his contemporaries to have been the most technically advanced pianist of his age and perhaps the greatest pianist of all time.

Hungarian Rhapsodies.

The Hungarian Rhapsodies, S.244, R106, (French: Rhapsodies hongroises, German: Ungarische Rhapsodien, Hungarian: Magyar rapszódiák) is a set of 19 piano pieces based on Hungarian folk themes, composed by Franz Liszt during 1846-1853, and later in 1882 and 1885. Liszt additionally arranged versions for orchestra, piano duet and piano trio.

Modest Mussorgsky / Maurice Ravel – Pictures at an Exhibition



Pictures at an Exhibition (Russian: Картинки с выставки — Воспоминание о Викторе Гартмане, Kartinki s vystavki — Vospominaniye o Viktore Gartmane, “Pictures from an Exhibition — A Remembrance of Viktor Hartmann“) is a suite composed for piano by Russian composer Modest Mussorgsky in 1874.

The suite is Mussorgsky’s most famous piano composition, and has become a showpiece for virtuoso pianists. It has become further known through various orchestrations and arrangements produced by other musicians and composers, with Ravel‘s arrangement being the most recorded and performed.

It was probably in 1870 that Mussorgsky met artist and architect Viktor Hartmann. Both men were devoted to the cause of an intrinsically Russian art and quickly became friends. 
Hartmann died from an aneurysm in 1873. The sudden loss of the artist, aged only 39, shook Mussorgsky along with others in Russia’s art world. Stasov helped organize an exhibition of over 400 Hartmann works in the Academy of Fine Arts in Saint Petersburg, Russia in February and March 1874. Mussorgsky lent works from his personal collection to the exhibit and viewed the show in person. Fired by the experience, he composed Pictures at an Exhibition in six weeks.

Mussorgsky based his musical material on drawings and watercolours by Hartmann produced mostly during the artist’s travels abroad. Locales include Poland, France and Italy; the final movement depicts an architectural design for the capital city of Ukraine.

I’ve lost, poetic thought by George-B


I’ve lost, poetic thought by George-B

I’ve lost your Image
somewhere on this road
appearing to have no ends…

Even though I know, an end is closing in…

I’ve lost your Smile
someplace where the black water’s waves
are always condemned to movement… There,
in the depth of the plane between fluids,
couldn’t find your Smile…

I’ve lost your violin, I’ve lost your bow,
and now, I’m left only with the arid view
of the deserts of the world,
that bring the Winds and the Sands
and the weary hopelessness of the Earth’s Locusts
devastating attacks…

I’ve lost your Wonder and Everything
it meant to me sometimes.

She’s falling apart – Lisa loeb


She’s falling apart – Lisa loeb

They pull up their chairs to the table
She stares at the food on her plate
At the toast and the butter
Her father, her mother, she pushes away

And they rise in the morning
And they sleep in the dark
And even though nobody’s looking
She’s falling apart

She gets home from school too early
And closes the door to her room
There’s nothing inside her
She’s weak and she’s tired of feeling like this

And they rise in the morning
And they sleep in the dark
And even though nobody’s looking
She’s falling apart

They call her for dinner, she makes up a reason
She looks at her arms and she rolls down her sleeves
And her mother is starting to see through her lies
And last night her father had tears in his eyes

And they rise in the morning
And they sleep in the dark
And even though nobody’s looking
She’s falling apart

And we rise in the morning
And we sleep in the dark
And even though nobody’s looking

Winter Night by Boris Pasternak (This one goes well with the Tchaikovsky’s “Winter Dream” Symphony!)


Winter Night by Boris Pasternak 

It snowed and snowed, the whole world over,
Snow swept the world from end to end.
A candle burned on the table;
A candle burned.As during summer midges swarm
To beat their wings against a flame
Out in the yard the snowflakes swarmed
To beat against the window pane

The blizzard sculptured on the glass
Designs of arrows and of whorls.
A candle burned on the table;
A candle burned.

Distorted shadows fell
Upon the lighted ceiling:
Shadows of crossed arms,of crossed legs-
Of crossed destiny.

Two tiny shoes fell to the floor
And thudded.
A candle on a nightstand shed wax tears
Upon a dress.

All things vanished within
The snowy murk-white, hoary.
A candle burned on the table;
A candle burned.

A corner draft fluttered the flame
And the white fever of temptation
Upswept its angel wings that cast
A cruciform shadow

It snowed hard throughout the month
Of February, and almost constantly
A candle burned on the table;
A candle burned.

Am pierdut imaginea ta…
Undeva pe drumul asta,
Ce pare fara inceput… Fara sfarsit… Desi
stiu ca sfarsitul e aproape…

Am pierdut zambetul tau…
Undeva in unda apei negre,
mereu osandita la miscare
Acolo, in adancul planului dintre fluide,
n-am mai regasit zambetul tau…

Am pierdut vioara ta, am pierdut arcusul,
Si-m ramas doar cu privelistea arida a deserturilor lumii,
care ne aduc vantul si nisipul  
si deznadejdea cotropitoare a atacurilor devastatoare ale lacustelor pamintului…

Am pierdut uimirea ta, si tot ceea ce a insemnat…candva.
