CRIHALMA ”Fecioreasca Fetelor”

CRIHALMA ”Fecioreasca Fetelor”

Hora Unirii la Săliște, 2010 – 2: Euzicasa: ” Fara Transylvania Romania devine Tara Romaneasca si Moldova!”

Zeci de feciori şi fete din localitățile Mărginimii Sibiului şi din așezările de peste munţi întemeiate de mărgineni se adună în fiecare an, în data de 28 decembrie la Sălişte, la Întâlnirea cetelor de juni. După un obicei vechi de mai bine de o sută de ani, fetele şi feciorii au jucat şi au vornicit pentru ca tradiţiile moștenite de la înaintași să treacă la următoarele generaţii. La final, toată lumea(juni, domnișoarele care-i însoțesc, oficialităţi, turiști) se prinde în Hora Unirii.
Scuzați tremuratul, dar filmarea a fost realizată pe un ger cumplit.
Din cauză că imediat după postarea filmulului, cineva a postat comentarii cu conținut indecent, am fost nevoit să stopez postarea comentariilor sub toate filmele realizate de mine la Săliște pe 28.12. 2010. Mulțumesc pentru înțelegere. Vă doresc vizionare plăcută

Life understands life, poetic thought by George-B

Life understands life,  poetic thought by George-B

Outside my window-outside the this birdhouses
A free mockingbird mocks me…and my neighbors.

She sings continuously, day and night, night and day
about the delights of freedom,
from up the top of the telegraph pole, from up the top 
of its thin throat…

O the trills, the composition, beyond reproach…
I join in sometimes, trying to imitate by whistling,
it analyses, does not recognize the bird,
but decides overtime to have a dialogue, So we converse, in a language I understand nothing….So, than how do we understand each other? 

Simply put…It’s the language of life:

Life understands Life!

Today’s Birthday: “THE UNSINKABLE” MOLLY BROWN (1867)

“The Unsinkable” Molly Brown (1867)

Though remembered as a socialite, Brown was actually a working class girl who married a miner. She only became wealthy upon the success of her husband’s engineering developments in the mining industry. In the sinking of the Titanic, Brown was lauded for helping to command a lifeboat and search for survivors. For her heroic efforts, she became known as “The Unsinkable Molly Brown.” However, she had never been called “Molly” during her lifetime. What did her friends call her?More… Discuss




At 200,000, Argentina’s Jewish community is the largest in Latin America. Sadly, during the 1990s in Buenos Aires, it became a target. In 1992, the Israeli Embassy was bombed. Two years later, the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association building was bombed, killing 85 and injuring hundreds. Argentine prosecutors have since accused the government of Iran and the Hezbollah militia of carrying out the 1994 attack, but no one has been convicted. Why was Judge Juan José Galeano removed from the case?More… Discuss



Indian Schoolchildren Sickened and Killed by Contaminated Lunch

At least 25 schoolchildren in the Indian state of Biharhave died and dozens of others have been hospitalized after consuming a school-provided lunch apparently contaminated with insecticide. India’s Mid-Day Meal Scheme is the world’s largest school feeding program, providing free meals to 120 million children. Regrettably, it seems the entire incident could have been avoided if the headmistress had simply heeded the cook’s warning that something smelled funny about the food. Instead, she demanded that it be served anyway. Once news of the mass poisoning broke, the headmistress fled. It is not yet known whether the contamination was intentional. More… Discuss


Bampfylde Moore Carew, King of the Beggars

Carew was an English rogue and vagabond who became a folk hero after The Life and Adventures of Bampfylde Moore Carew was published in 1745. The book portrayed him as a roaming trickster who lived off the money he made deceiving the wealthy. Carew’s ruses included claiming alms as a shipwrecked sailor, dressing as an old woman, posing as a rat-catcher, and faking smallpox. Carew claimed to have been elected “King of the Beggars” by members of what group after the death of their leader? More… Discuss

Samuel Barber – Adagio for Strings

DesiderataMax Ehrmann
Another inspirational poem set to music 😉 if you like this check out my other vids, feel free to comment.

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste, 
and remember what peace there may be in silence. 

As far as possible, without surrender, 
be on good terms with all persons. 
Speak your truth quietly and clearly; 
and listen to others, 
even to the dull and the ignorant; 
they too have their story. 
Avoid loud and aggressive persons; 
they are vexatious to the spirit. 

If you compare yourself with others, 
you may become vain or bitter, 
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. 
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans. 
Keep interested in your own career, however humble; 
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. 

Exercise caution in your business affairs, 
for the world is full of trickery. 
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is; 
many persons strive for high ideals, 
and everywhere life is full of heroism. 
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection. 
Neither be cynical about love, 
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment, 
it is as perennial as the grass. 

Take kindly the counsel of the years, 
gracefully surrendering the things of youth. 
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. 
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. 
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. 

Beyond a wholesome discipline, 
be gentle with yourself. 
You are a child of the universe 
no less than the trees and the stars; 
you have a right to be here. 
And whether or not it is clear to you, 
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should. 

Therefore be at peace with God, 
whatever you conceive Him to be. 
And whatever your labors and aspirations, 
in the noisy confusion of life, 
keep peace in your soul. 

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams, 
it is still a beautiful world. 
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.

FISA Court Orders Release of PRISM Order

The secret court overseeing government surveillance has ordered the Obama administration to release the 2008 decision authorizing the Internet spying program PRISM. The Internet giant Yahoo had asked the FISA court for permission to disclose PRISM after Edward Snowden revealed its existence last month. Snowden has alleged that PRISM taps directly into the servers of the nation’s Internet giants to collect millions of communications in the United States and abroad. The White House has until late next month to decide which parts of the decision will be published.

A coalition of 19 groups has filed a lawsuit challenging the National Security Agency’s wholesale collection of phone records. Brought by the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the lawsuit accuses the NSA of violating the groups’ right of association through the collection of metadata on all U.S. calls. It is the first legal action to directly target the NSA since its massive surveillance operations were revealed.

Senate Votes on Obama Picks in Deal Preserving Filibuster

Republicans have dropped their blockade of a number of President Obama’s appointees in return for preservation of the Senate filibuster. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had threatened the so-called “nuclear option” of using Democrats’ Senate advantage to push through new rules ending Republicans’ ability to stall presidential picks and leave top positions unfilled. After Republicans backed down on Tuesday, the Senate immediately voted to confirm Richard Cordray as the first permanent director of the Consumer Financial Protection Board. The deal also means confirmation votes for six other nominees, including Thomas Perez for Labor Secretary and Gina McCarthy to head the Environmental Protection Agency. In return, Democrats agreed to replace two Obama picks for the National Labor Relations Board appointed during the Senate recess. The new picks are Nancy Schiffer, an attorney with the AFL-CIO, and Kent Hirozawa, the chief counsel to current NLRB chair Mark Pearce.

U.N.: Syria’s Refugee Flight Worst Since Rwandan Genocide

The United Nations continues to warn the conflict in Syria is fueling the worst refugee crisis since the Rwanda genocide. On Tuesday, U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres said most of Syria’s 1.8 million refugees have fled since the beginning of the year.

António Guterres: “There are now nearly 1.8 million Syrian refugees known to UNHRC in the region. Two-thirds of them have fled Syria since the beginning of this year, an average of over 6,000 people a day. We have not seen a refugee outflow escalate at such a frightening rate since the Rwandan genocide almost 20 years ago. This crisis has been going on for much longer than anyone had feared, with unbearable humanitarian consequences.”

The official U.N. death toll for Syria’s more than two-year conflict is near 93,000.

Egypt’s interim government has sworn in its first Cabinet since the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi earlier this month. The army general who led Morsi’s removal, General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, stays on as defense minister. The Cabinet also includes three women. No positions are held by members of the Muslim Brotherhood or other Islamist parties. The Muslim Brotherhood says it does not recognize the new government, calling it “illegitimate.”

Muslim Extremists Destroy Church In Egypt As Other Muslims Move To Protect Priest


EgyptAttacks on Christians and other religious minorities in some Muslim countries by extremists have become terribly common. These same radicals who would kill over a YouTube movie as an affront to Islam often see nothing wrong in destroying churches and killing people of other faiths. That is why this story of the destruction of a Coptic Christian church in Egypt seemed like just another outrage until I notice one detail. The priest escaped with the help of his Muslim neighbors.

Benda was born in Bohemia at the town of Staré Benátky. Benda himself claimed to have been born 25 November, but baptism records show he was baptised three days earlier, on 22 November. His actual date of birth seems not to have been recorded, but it was probably no more than a day or two earlier than 22 November.[1] Continue reading
