It was President Franklin D. Roosevelt who first proclaimed May 22 as National Maritime Day in 1933. Since that time, observations of this day have grown in popularity, particularly in American port cities. Ships are opened to the public, maritime art and essay contests are held, and parades and band concerts are common. Environmentalists sometimes take advantage of the attention focused on the country’s maritime heritage on this day to draw attention to pollution and deterioration of maritime environments, particularly in large commercial ports like New York City.

Matteotti was an Italian Socialist leader, member of parliament, and outspoken opponent of the Fascist regime during its early days. His death at the hands of Fascist hirelings precipitated a parliamentary crisis that Mussolini overcame by disavowing the murder and tightening police control. It could be said that Mussolini’s dictatorship began when he crushed the opposition aroused by this assassination. Mussolini’s role in Matteotti’s death remains a subject of debate.

Nutrient levels in staple food crops may fall as carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere continue to rise. Researchers grew wheat, rice, soybeans, corn, sorghum, and field peas in fields subjected to carbon dioxide concentrations anticipated on Earth by the middle of this century.

Koch Brothers Exposed: The Chilling New Documentary Republicans Don’t Want You to See
Published on May 21, 2014
http://www.democracynow.org – There is a chilling new documentary about the billionaire brothers, David and Charles Koch, that some Republicans do not want you to see. On Monday, Republican Rep. Candice Miller of Michigan tried to block an event at the Capitol unveiling the film, “Koch Brothers Exposed: 2014 Edition.” Miller claimed the documentary could violate House rules and “cross the line into partisan politics.” She unsuccessfully argued that showing the documentary was an inappropriate use of taxpayer-funded facilities. On Tuesday evening, the film event proceeded as planned. The updated documentary shows how the Koch brothers have used their vast fortunes to oppose government programs such as Medicaid, Medicare and Social Security as well as obstruct efforts to raise the minimum wage, tackle climate change and expand voting rights. We are joined by the film’s director, Robert Greenwald, founder and president of Brave New Films.

Antonin Dvorak – Piano Concerto, Op. 33 (1876)
Antonín Leopold Dvořák (September 8, 1841 — May 1, 1904) was a Czech composer. Following the nationalist example of Bedřich Smetana, Dvořák frequently employed features of the folk musics of Moravia and his native Bohemia (then parts of the Austrian Empire and now constituting the Czech Republic). Dvořák’s own style has been described as ‘the fullest recreation of a national idiom with that of the symphonic tradition, absorbing folk influences and finding effective ways of using them.’
Piano Concerto, Op. 33 (1876)
The Concerto for Piano and Orchestra in G minor, Op. 33, was the first of three concertos that Antonín Dvořák completed—it was followed by a violin concerto and then a cello concerto—and the piano concerto is probably the least known and least performed.
As the eminent music critic Harold Schonberg put it, Dvořák wrote “an attractive Piano Concerto in G minor with a rather ineffective piano part, a beautiful Violin Concerto in A minor, and a supreme Cello Concerto in B minor“.
(bartje11 totally disagrees with the eminent Harold Schonberg)
Dvořák composed his piano concerto from late August through 14 September 1876. Its autograph version contains many corrections, erasures, cuts and additions, the bulk of which were made in the piano part. The work was premiered in Prague on 24 March 1878, with the orchestra of the Prague Provisional Theatre conducted by Adolf Cech with the Czech pianist Karel Slavkovsky.
Dvořák himself realized that he had not created a piece in which the piano does battle with the orchestra, as it is not a virtuosic piece. As Dvořák wrote: “I see I am unable to write a Concerto for a virtuoso; I must think of other things.”
(bartje11: maybe not a work with obvious virtuoso fireworks, but still a very, very difficult piano part, not for the average pianist)
What Dvořák composed, instead, was a symphonic concerto in which the piano plays a leading part in the orchestra, rather than opposed to it.
In an effort to mitigate awkward passages and expand the pianist’s range of sonorities, the Czech pianist and pedagogue Vilém Kurz undertook an extensive re-writing of the solo part; the Kurz revision is frequently performed today.
The concerto was championed for many years by the noted Czech pianist Rudolf Firkušný, who played it with many different conductors and orchestras around the world before his death in 1994. Once a student of Kurz, Firkušný performed the revised solo part for much of his life, turning towards the original Dvořák score later on in his concert career.

“There is so much pure goodness in it”: Antonín Dvořák – Serenade for Strings in E major, Op. 22, B. 52
Antonín Dvořák – Serenade for Strings in E major, Op. 22, B. 5:
“There is so much pure goodness in it”
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Antonín Dvořák‘s Serenade for Strings in E major (Czech: Smyčcová serenáda E dur), Op. 22, was composed in just two weeks in May 1875. It remains one of the composer’s more popular orchestral works to this day.
Composition and premiere
1875 was a fruitful year for Dvořák, during which he wrote his Symphony No. 5, String Quintet No. 2, Piano Trio No. 1, the opera Vanda, and the Moravian Duets. These were happy times in his life. His marriage was young, and his first son had been born. For the first time in his life, he was being recognized as a composer and without fear of poverty. He received a generous stipend from a commission in Vienna, which allowed him to compose his Fifth Symphony and several chamber works as well as the Serenade.
Dvořák is said to have written the Serenade in just 12 days, from 3–14 May. The piece was premiered in Prague on 10 December 1876 by Adolf Čech and the combined orchestras of the Czech and German theatres. It was published in 1877 in the composer’s piano duet arrangement by Emanuel Starý in Prague. The score was printed two years later by Bote and Bock, Berlin.
Dvořák’s Serenade for Strings consists of five movements:
With the exception of the Finale, which is in modified sonata form, each movement follows a rough A-B-A form. It is believed that Dvořák took up this small orchestral genre because it was less demanding than the symphony, but allowed for the provision of pleasure and entertainment. The piece combines cantabile style (first movement), a slow waltz (second movement), humorous high spirits (third movement), lyrical beauty (fourth movement) and exuberance (fifth movement).1
Quotes and Interpretation
“The Serenade (Op. 22) was aptly entitled, since at least four of its five movements (the second of which was a delightful waltz) displayed an elegant touch suggestive of gracious living accompanied by ‘serenading’ in the stately home of some 18th-century aristocrat; in the finale alone did the composer discard periwig and lace cuffs, and even here the junketing, though lively, was well-bred, and in the closing moments there was a delicious return to the courtliness of the opening. Pastiche perhaps, but what excellent pastiche! Since Dvořák was as yet only on the threshold of developing an individual style, it is perhaps not surprising that this slightly uncharacteristic but extremely accomplished and enjoyable Serenade is the earliest of his compositions in which a detached listener is likely to discover enchantment.” (Gervase Hughes 1967)2
“Just like delivering good news to someone has a positive rub-off effect on the messenger, performing Dvořák’s Serenade is really a very therapeutic endeavor for performers. There is so much ‘pure goodness’ in it. Somehow even the moments which could cast a gloomy shadow — light melancholy of the Waltz, or the fragility of the opening of Larghetto — retain the wonderfully cloudless atmosphere… The remarkable thing about Dvořák’s Serenade – this ‘cloudless goodness’ is fully sufficient for sustaining meaningful communication for nearly half an hour of music.” (Misha Rachlevsky, 2000)

St. Constantine the Great
Feastday: May 21
Junior Emperor and emperor called the “Thirteenth Apostle” in the East. The son of Constantius I Chlorus, junior emperor and St. Helena, Constantine was raised on the court of co-Emperor Diocletian. When his father died in 306, Constantine was declared junior emperor of York, England, by the local legions and earned a place as a ruler of the Empire by defeating of his main rivals at the battle of the Milvian Bridge in 312. According to legend, he adopted the insignia of Christ, the chi-rho, and placed it upon his labarum – the military standards that held the banners his armies carried into battle to vanquish their pagan enemies. His purple banners were inscribed with the Latin for “In this sign conquer.” Constantine then shared rule of the Empire with Licinius Licinianus, exerting his considerable influence upon his colleague to secure the declaration of Christianity to be a free religion. When, however, Licinius and Constantine launched a persecution of the Christians, Constantine marched to the East and routed his opponent at the battle of Adrianople. Constantine was the most dominating figure of his lifetime, towering over his contemporaries, including Pope Sylvester I. He presided over the Council of Nicaea, gave extensive grants of land and property to the Church, founded the Christian city of Constantinople to serve as his new capital, and undertook a long-sighted program of Christianization for the whole of the Roman Empire. While he was baptized a Christian only on his deathbed, Constantine nevertheless was a genuinely important figure in Christian history and was revered as a saint, especially in the Eastern Church. …
Icoana Sf Imparati Constantin si Elena
Acest mare între împäraţi, fericitul şi pururea pomenitul Constantin, a fost fiu al lui Constanţiu, care se numea Clor, şi al cinstitei Elena. Constanţiu a fost nepot de fiică lui Claudiu cel ce a împărăţit în Roma mai înainte de împărăţia lui Diocleţian şi a lui Carin. Acest Constanţiu, după ce a fost primit de Diocleţian şi de Maxenţiu Erculiu ca să fie părtaş al împărăţiei lor, când Maximian Galeriu dimpreună cu alţi prigonitori, cu tărie ridicaseră prigonire asupra tuturor creştinilor, el singur întrebuinţând blândeţea şi mila, mai vârtos pe cei ce se luptau pentru credinţa lui Hristos îi întrebuinţa sfetnici şi părtaşi ai slujbelor împărăteşti. Învăţând el buna cinstire pe Constantin fiul său cel iubit, care după acestea s-a numit întâiul împărat al creştinilor, l-a lăsat moştenitor al împărăţiei sale, în insulele Britaniei. După ce Constantin a fost înştiinţat de lucrurile necinstite, desfrânate, pierzătoare şi proaste, pe care le făcea în Roma, Maxenţiu, fiul lui Erculiu, şi îndemnat de dumnezeiasca râvnă şi chemând pe Hristos împreună oştilor, a pogorât împotriva lui Maxenţiu. Deci, văzând Dumnezeu curăţenia sufletului lui i s-a arătat mai întâi în somn, după aceea în amiaza zilei, închipuind semnul Crucii scris cu stele: , l-a arătat lui şi celor ce erau vrednici. Deci, îndrăznind în chipul cinstitei Cruci şi făcând cu aur semnul Crucii pe arme, a mers la Roma, şi pe însuşi pierzătorul Maxenţiu l-a aruncat în râul Tibon, înecându-l lângă podul Milvia, şi aşa a izbăvit pe cetăţenii Romei de tirania acestuia. Atunci marele Constantin, pornindu-se de la cetatea romanilor şi mergând pe cale voia să zidească o cetate pe numele său în Ilion, unde se zice că a avut loc războiul Troienilor cu elinii; însă a fost oprit prin dumnezeiasca înştiinţare şi i s-a poruncit de la Dumnezeu ca mai de grabă în Bizanţ să-şi zidească cetatea. Deci, urmând voii celei dumnezeieşti, a zidit această de Dumnezeu păzită cetate pe numele său, pe care a şi adus-o lui Dumnezeu ca pe o pârgă a credinţei sale. Şi deoarece căuta scumpătatea credinţei celei din vremea noastră, a adunat în Niceea arhierei din toate părţile, prin care s-a propovăduit credinţa ortodoxă, şi Fiul a fost recunoscut deofiinţă cu Tatăl, iar Arie şi cei împreună cu el au fost daţi anatemei, dimpreună cu hula lor. A trimis încă şi pe maica sa Elena la Ierusalim pentru căutarea cinstitului lemn pe care a fost pironit cu trupul Hristos, Dumnezeul nostru; apoi, aceste părţi de lemn sfânt au fost mutate, adică o parte a fost aşezată chiar în Ierusalim, iar cealaltă parte a adus-o în împărăteasca cetate.
Constantin si ElenaÎmpărăteasa Elena, după ce a ajuns la Constantinopol, şi-a săvârşit viaţa; iar marele Constantin, împodobind cetatea cu înnoiri şi cu prăznuiri, şi puţin ceva trecând peste patruzeci şi doi de ani ai împărăţiei sale, şi începând războiul cu perşii, şi în oarecare sat lângă Nicomidia fiind, s-a mutat către Domnul, şi a fost adus în cetatea sa, unde a fost primit cu evlavie şi cu prea încuviinţate întâmpinări, a fost aşezat în biserica sfinţilor apostoli. Şi a împărăţit în Roma cea Nouă în anul de la zidirea lumii, cinci mii opt sute optsprezece; iar de la venirea cea în trup a Mântuitorului nostru Dumnezeu trei sute treizeci şi şapte, fiind al treizeci şi doilea împărat de la August.
Şi se săvârşeşte pomenirea lui în preasfânta biserică cea mare, în biserica sfinţii apostoli, şi în dumnezeiasca biserica sa, în Mânăstirea Chinsterna lui Vis, unde mergând patriarhul împreună cu împăratul şi cu suita sa cu litanfe, săvârşesc aducerea dumnezeieştilor Taine.
This great among kings , blessed and ever memorable Constantine was the son of Constantius , called Chlorine, and Precious Elena .
