Egypte : tentative d’assassinat à la voiture piégée sur le ministre de l’Intérieur



Le convoi du minitre de l’Intérieur égyptien a été attaqué ce jeudi par des “engins explosifs télécommandés”. Les 4 véhicules qui entouraient la voiture blindée du ministre ont selon ce dernier été détruits. Le ministre est indemne, mais au moins 10 de ses gardes ont été blessés. Le mouvement Tamarod accuse les Frères Musulmans, et ceux-ci accusent le gouvernement d’avoir orchestré l’attentat.

Frederick Delius: The Walk to Paradise Garden by Charles Mackerras



Frederick Delius (1862-1934)

“The Walk to Paradise Garden (A Village Romeo and Juliet)” (1906)
Orchestra of the Welsh National Opera
by Sir Charles Mackerras

Frederick Delius, aged 45, photographed in 1907

Frederick Theodore Albert Delius, CH (29 January 1862 – 10 June 1934) was an English composer. Born in the north of England to a prosperous mercantile family, he resisted attempts to recruit him to commerce. He was sent to Florida in the United States in 1884 to manage an orange plantation, where he neglected his managerial duties; influenced by African-American music, he began composing. After a brief period of formal musical study in Germany beginning in 1886, he embarked on a full-time career as a composer in Paris and then in nearby Grez-sur-Loing, where he and his wife Jelka lived for the rest of their lives, except during the First World War.

Delius’s first successes came in Germany, where Hans Haym and other conductors promoted his music from the late 1890s. In Delius’s native Britain, it was 1907 before his music made regular appearances in concert programmes, after Thomas Beecham took it up. Beecham conducted the full premiere of A Mass of Life in London in 1909 (he had premiered Part II in Germany in 1908); he staged the opera A Village Romeo and Juliet at Covent Garden in 1910; and he mounted a six-day Delius festival in London in 1929, as well as making gramophone recordings of many of Delius’s works. After 1918 Delius began to suffer the effects of syphilis, contracted during his earlier years in Paris. He became paralysed and blind, but completed some late compositions between 1928 and 1932 with the aid of an amanuensisEric Fenby.

Today’s Birthday: JESSE JAMES (1847)


Jesse James (1847)

James was an outlaw who became a legendary figure in American folklore. After the Civil War, he and a number of other former Confederate guerillas banded together to rob banks, trains, and stagecoaches across several states. He was later betrayed by fellow bandit Robert Ford, who shot him to death in 1882 in order to receive a $10,000 reward. Despite James’s reputation as a murderous thief, his exploits led to a number of romanticized legends, including rumors that he survived until when? More…Discuss

 

This Day in the Yesteryear: SOVIET EMBASSY CIPHER CLERK IGOR GOUZENKO DEFECTS TO CANADA (1945)


Soviet Embassy Cipher Clerk Igor Gouzenko Defects to Canada (1945)

Considered by some to be the first major international event of the Cold War, the defection of Soviet cipher clerk Igor Gouzenko radically transformed the way the West regarded and approached Soviet espionage. The authorities at first dismissed Gouzenko’s reports of Stalin’s efforts to steal nuclear secrets and of Soviet spy rings operating in Canada and the US, but he soon convinced them of the truth behind his allegations. The information he revealed helped lead to the apprehension of whom? More…Discuss

 

FIFTH TIME’S THE CHARM FOR 64-YEAR-OLD CUBA-FLORIDA SWIMMER


Fifth Time’s the Charm for 64-Year-Old Cuba-Florida Swimmer

After four failed attempts to make the 110-mile (177-km) swim across the Florida Straits from Cuba to the US, 64-year-old long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad became the first person to complete the crossing without a shark cage or flippers. The achievement was 35 years in the making. She made her first attempt in 1978, when she was just 28, but had to abandon it 42 hours in, after crossing 76 miles. Undeterred, she tried again and again, and after 53 hours in the water this weekend, she finally achieved her goal, sending a message that it is never too late to chase your dreams. More… Discuss
