- Astăzi este o zi mare ,pe data de 15 Ianuarie sa născut Mihai Eminescu !Mihai Eminescu (născut Mihail Eminovici; n. 15 ianuarie 1850, Botoşani – d. 15 iunie 1889, Bucureşti) a fost un poet, prozator şi jurnalist român, socotit de cititorii români şi de critica literară postumă drept cea mai importantă voce poetică din literatura română. Receptiv la romantismele europene de secol XVIII şi XIX, a asimilat viziunile poetice occidentale, creaţia sa aparţinând unui romantism literar relativ întârziat. În momentul în care Mihai Eminescu a recuperat temele tradiţionale ale Romantismului european, gustul pentru trecut şi pasiunea pentru istoria naţională, căreia a dorit chiar să-i construiască un Pantheon de voievozi, nostalgia regresivă pentru copilărie, melancolia şi cultivarea stărilor depresive, întoarcerea în natură etc., poezia europeană descoperea paradigma modernismului, prin Charles Baudelaire sau Stéphane Mallarmé, bunăoară. Poetul avea o bună educaţie filosofică, opera sa poetică fiind influenţată de marile sisteme filosofice ale epocii sale, de filosofia antică, de la Heraclit la Platon, de marile sisteme de gândire ale romantismului, de teoriile lui Arthur Schopenhauer, Immanuel Kant (de altfel Eminescu a lucrat o vreme la traducerea tratatului acestuia Critica raţiunii pure, la îndemnul lui Titu Maiorescu, cel care îi ceruse să-şi ia doctoratul în filosofia lui Kant la Universitatea din Berlin, plan nefinalizat până la urmă) şi de teoriile lui Hegel.Rădăcina ideologică principală a gândirii sale economice sau politice era conservatoare; prin articolele sale publicate mai ales în perioada în care a lucrat la Timpul a reuşit să-i deranjeze pe cîţiva lideri importanţi din acest mare partid care au lansat sloganul, celebru în epocă, „Ia mai opriţi-l pe Eminescu ăsta!”. Publicistica eminesciană oferă cititorilor o radiografie a vieţii politice, parlamentare sau guvernamentale din acea epocă; în plus ziaristul era la nevoie şi cronicar literar sau teatral, scria despre viaţa mondenă sau despre evenimente de mai mică importanţă, fiind un veritabil cronicar al momentului.Eminescu a fost activ în societatea politico-literară Junimea, şi a lucrat ca redactor la Timpul, ziarul oficial al Partidului Conservator. A publicat primul său poem la vârsta de 16 ani, iar la 19 ani a plecat să studieze la Viena. Manuscrisele poetului Mihai Eminescu, 46 de volume, aproximativ 14.000 de file, au fost dăruite Academiei Române de Titu Maiorescu, în şedinta din 25 ianuarie 1902. Eminescu a fost internat în 3 februarie 1889 la spitalul Mărcuţa din Bucureşti şi apoi a fost transportat la sanatoriul Caritas. În data de 15 iunie 1889, în jurul orei 4 dimineaţa, poetul a murit în sanatoriul doctorului Şuţu. În 17 iunie Eminescu a fost înmormântat la umbra unui tei din cimitirul Bellu din Bucureşti. A fost ales post-mortem (28 octombrie 1948) membru al Academiei Române.

The USEPA continues to give out bad information to drinking water consumers in Flint. Flint consumers contact me daily concerned about the strong smell of chlorine in the drinking water… and USEPA representatives tell them this is a good thing… that this means the water is disinfected. This response tells me the USEPA representative really do not understand water chemistry and disinfection byproduct formation… their ignorance is concerning because the “more chlorine” is better approach could cause more problems. The Flint distribution system still has not been properly analyzed by a comprehensive hydraulic model.
When you smell chlorine in drinking water it is the indicator of the interaction between chlorine and a build-up of organic material in your distribution system and onsite plumbing. While a chlorine odor is often an indicator that the disinfectant is effectively working to remove bacteria and debris in your pipes… in Flint it means the distribution system is still full of biofilm and sludge. This is where legionella and other bacteria thrive… even in chlorinated environments.

This is one of the most colorful festivals in the Philippines, held in Kalibo, the capital city of the province of Aklan. Originally falling on the Feast Day of Santo Niño, the celebration combines Christian and non-Christian elements. During the present-day festival, revelers cover their skin with soot and wear Ati costumes that are patchworks of coconut shells, feathers, and fronds. They converge on the main streets, pound their spears, and repeatedly dance a two-step dance. From a distance, the celebrants look like a solid mass of people lurching in a frenzied rhythm.: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch
Eric Henry Liddell (1902)
Liddell was a Scottish athlete and missionary. Because of his Christian convictions, Liddell refused to run track events on Sundays, a decision that forced him to withdraw from his best event, the 100-meter sprint, during the 1924 Paris Olympics. Instead, he ran the 400 meters, winning the gold medal and breaking the existing world record. His story is depicted in the Academy Award-winning 1981 film Chariots of Fire. Why is he listed in some literature as China’s first Olympic champion?: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Miguel de Cervantes’s Don Quixote Is Published (1605)
A founding work of modern Western literature, Cervantes’s Don Quixote presents a profound picture of the divide between idealistic and realistic world views. A burlesque of chivalric romances, it was an immediate success. In 1614, a spurious Part II was published by an unidentified author who insulted Cervantes in his prologue. Offended, Cervantes responded by publishing his own Part II, which some literary critics consider superior to Part I. What is Don Quixote’s real name in the book?: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tfd.mobile.TfdSearch

Hatching and cross-hatching are artistic techniques in which artists use closely-spaced parallel or crossed lines to create tonal or shading effects in their work. By varying the length, angle, spacing, and thickness of these lines, artists achieve a variety of visual effects. Western artists developed cross-hatching in the Middle Ages, and many 15th-century old master prints contain examples of the technique.

It is likely that you’ve come across these fossil looking things during your wanderings in the desert. They are actually not fossils, but dendrites.
These pseudofossils form as naturally occurring fissures in the rock are filled by percolating mineral solutions. They form when water rich in manganese and iron flows along fractures and bedding planes between layers of limestone and other rock types, depositing dendritic crystals as the solution flows through. A variety of manganese oxides and hydroxides are involved.

France warns against moving US embassy to Jerusalem
Speaking as 70 countries gather for Mideast peace talks in Paris on Sunday, French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault warned of “extremely serious consequences” if the US moves its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem as planned.
“When you are president of the United States, you cannot take such a stubborn and such a unilateral view on this issue. You have to try to create the conditions for peace,” Ayrault said.
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas warned Saturday that peace efforts could be dealt a mortal blow if Trump moves the embassy.
Doing so would reverse decades of US policy, which has maintained that the final status ofJerusalem – whose eastern and largely Arab side has been occupied by Israel since 1967 – should be determined in peace negotiations with the Palestinians.
Three US senators introduced a bill earlier this month aimed at moving the US embassy from Tel Aviv. The bill includes a provision calling for consular funding to be suspended until a US embassy is established in the holy city.
Key players absent
The Paris peace conference is taking place without the participation of officials from Israel, the Palestinians or the incoming US government. And while it may seem like a long shot to try to restart beleaguered Middle East peace talks without any of the key players, organisers say that moving forward sends a message. They want both Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President-elect Trump to see that most of the world wants a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
According to a draft statement obtained by The Associated Press on Friday, the conference will urge Israel and the Palestinians “to officially restate their commitment to the two-state solution”. It also will affirm that the international community “will not recognise” changes to Israel’s pre-1967 lines without an agreement by both sides.
The Palestinians have welcomed the French initiative and Abbas was initially expected to attend, although his visit to Paris has been postponed. But Netanyahu says the conference is “rigged” against Israel and declined an invitation to a special meeting afterward.
Israeli and Palestinian leaders haven’t negotiated even indirectly since a previous US peace effort collapsed in 2014. Palestinian attacks on civilians and incitement to violence have heightened tensions, as has expanded Israeli settlement-building.
Israel has settled some 600,000 of its citizens in the West Bank and east Jerusalem, which is claimed by the Palestinians for a future independent state. Israel captured both areas in the 1967 Mideast war. Netanyahu has ruled out a return to Israel’s 1967 borders, and many members of his coalition oppose Palestinian independence.

Outcry over Trump Twitter rant against civil rights icon
President-elect Donald Trump lashed out Saturday at a prominent civil rights icon and lawmaker who said he is skipping next week’s inauguration ceremony because he sees the New York businessman’s election as illegitimate.
Trump aimed his latest Twitter blast at longtime congressman John Lewis and the majority-black district in Georgia he represents, drawing widespread criticism just days before the holiday honoring slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr.
A park near the monument to King was the endpoint Saturday of the first major protest in Washington ahead of Trump’s January 20 inauguration: nearly 2,000 people rallied both in honor of King and against the president-elect.
Lewis, whose district includes Atlanta and surrounding areas, on Friday became the most high-profile Democratic lawmaker to boycott Trump’s inauguration.
“I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” Lewis told NBC’s “Meet the Press” talk show in an interview on Friday.
Early Saturday, Trump fired back at him.
“Congressman John Lewis should spend more time on fixing and helping his district, which is in horrible shape and falling apart (not to mention crime infested) rather than falsely complaining about the election results,” Trump said on Twitter.
“All talk, talk, talk — no action or results. Sad!”
Lewis, 76, is known for his decades of work in the civil rights movement, and marched with King at the August 1963 rally in Washington at which King gave his “I Have a Dream” speech.
The son of sharecroppers, Lewis took part in so-called Freedom Rides — challenges to segregated facilities at bus terminals in the South.
On March 7, 1965, he led a march in Selma, Alabama that ended in an attack by state troopers on the protesters that later became known as “Bloody Sunday.”
At least 16 House Democrats have publicly stated they will not be attending Trump’s swearing-in at the US Capitol next Friday, with several indicating their absence will be an act of political protest — but Lewis is the most prominent.
In his interview with NBC, Lewis cited what he called Russian interference in the November 8 election as his reason for skipping the presidential inauguration for the first time since becoming a member of Congress in 1987.
“I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton,” he told the network, in the interview which will air in full on Sunday.
“You cannot be at home with something that you feel that is wrong.”
US intelligence organizations have accused Russia of cyberattacks on the Democratic National Committee and distributing hacked emails from senior Clinton aides in an effort to influence the US election.
Trump has acknowledged that Moscow likely meddled in the election, but has refuted any notion that it helped him defeat Clinton.
‘A true American hero’
On Twitter, Lewis earned support from Democratic colleagues — and a few Republicans.
“Rep. John Lewis was beaten, bloodied & arrested 40+ times marching for civil rights,” wrote Senator Chris Coons of Delaware.
“He is a true American hero and represents the best of us.”
Without directly denouncing Trump’s comments, Republican Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska linked to a photo of Lewis at a civil rights march, with the message, “John Lewis and his ‘talk’ have changed the world.”
‘We won’t go back’
On Saturday, some 2,000 demonstrators, the majority of them black, marched along the National Mall — the grassy esplanade that is home to major museums and monuments — to the park near the Martin Luther King Memorial.
Some chanted, “We will not be Trumped.”
“We won’t go back,” said civil rights leader Al Sharpton, calling on marchers to fight to defend the accomplishments of Barack Obama’s eight years in the White House.
“We want this nation to understand what has been fought for and gained,” he added. “You are going to need more than one election to turn it around.”
Many of those gathered expressed pessimism about the incoming Trump administration.
Valerie Williams, a black woman who traveled to the nation’s capital from New York for the march, told AFP she fears that for the next four years, “nobody in the government is going to have my concerns at heart.”
“Unfortunately when they elected Obama president, black people mistakenly thought that meant that this country was more tolerant of different races,” she said.
“But we saw over the past eight years that it just made some people that were probably inherently racist upset, and all those people came bubbling to the top.”
Hundreds of thousands of Americans are preparing to demonstrate nationwide as Trump prepares to take office, most notably at the Women’s March on Washington the day after the inauguration.
Organizers say that event could attract some 200,000 people.
