„Cine-ar putea trăi fără să uite ? Dar cine poate să uite îndeajuns ? Cenuşa amintirii zace în adâncul inimii fiecăruia. Numai atunci când nu mai ai pentru ce trăi, poţi fi liber ! ” –  Erich Maria Remarque

It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue

Bob Dylan

Lyrics

You must leave now, take what you need, you think will last
But whatever you wish to keep, you better grab it fast
Yonder stands your orphan with his gun
Crying like a fire in the sun
Look out the saints are comin’ through
And it’s all over now, baby blue

The highway is for gamblers, better use your sense
Take what you have gathered from coincidence
The empty-handed painter from your streets
Is drawing crazy patterns on your sheets
This sky, too, is folding under you
And it’s all over now, baby blue

All your seasick sailors, they are rowing home
All your reindeer armies, are all going home
The lover who just walked out your door
Has taken all his blankets from the floor
The carpet, too, is moving under you
And it’s all over now, baby blue

Leave your stepping stones behind, something calls for you
Forget the dead you’ve left, they will not follow you
The vagabond who’s rapping at your door
Is standing in the clothes that you once wore
Strike another match, go start anew
And it’s all over now, baby blue

Today’s Holiday:Festa de São João do Porto (So Joo Festival)


Today’s Holiday:
Festa de São João do Porto (So Joo Festival)

June 23, the eve of the Feast of St. John the Baptist, is celebrated each year in Porto, Portugal, with a curious ritual. Festival-goers tap each other on the head with plastic hammers or leeks. Some say the gesture indicates romantic interest, others claim it brings good luck to the recipient. The custom can be traced to pagan times; indeed, the fireworks, music, all-night dancing, and colorful processions that feature on St. John’s Eve are more closely allied to pagan summer solstice rituals than religious observances. A large amount of wine is drunk, and grilled sardines are consumed. More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Today’s Birthday:Alan Mathison Turing (1912)


Today’s Birthday:
Alan Mathison Turing (1912)

Turing was a groundbreaking English mathematician and logician who worked on artificial intelligence (AI), among other things. He created the Turing test to determine whether a computer is capable of humanlike thought. His papers on the subject are widely acknowledged as the foundation of research in AI. He also did valuable work in cryptography during WWII, helping to break the German Enigma code. In the midst of his pioneering work, Turing committed suicide after being convicted of what crime? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

This Day in History:College Board Administers the First SAT Exam (1926)


This Day in History:
College Board Administers the First SAT Exam (1926)

The SAT is a standardized test used in college admissions in the US. Developed by Carl Brigham, a Princeton psychologist who worked on the US Army’s IQ test, the first Scholastic Aptitude Test was administered in 1926 to over 8,000 test-takers—60% of whom were male. Criticized as being biased toward whites, males, and the middle class, the exam has been modified over the years to improve fairness. Still, its value as a predictor of success in college is debated.

Article of the Day:The Elvis Taxon


Article of the Day:

The Elvis Taxon

In paleontology, an Elvis taxon is an organism or group of organisms that has been misidentified as having re-emerged in the fossil record after a period of presumed extinction. Elvis taxa are not actually descendants of the original taxon, rather, they have simply developed a similar morphology through convergent evolution. Coined in 1993, the term is a reference to the many sightings of Elvis Presley after his death, as well as to his many impersonators. What is one example of an Elvis taxon? More…: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Forever Young

Bob Dylan


Lyrics

May God’s bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you

May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay
Forever young

Forever young
Forever young
May you stay
Forever young

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you

May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
And may you stay
Forever young

Forever young
Forever young
May you stay
Forever young

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift

May your heart always be joyful
May your song always be sung
And may you stay
Forever young

Forever young
Forever young
May you stay
Forever young
