The Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 9

 Form  
 The Seventh Symphony is in four movements:

Poco sostenutoVivace
Allegretto
Presto – Assai meno presto (trio)

Allegro con brio

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Portrait of Beethoven in 1815, by Joseph Willibrord Mähler, two years after the premiere of his 7th Symphony

The Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92, is a symphony in four movements composed by Ludwig van Beethoven between 1811 and 1812, while improving his health in the Bohemian spa town of Teplice. The work is dedicated to Count Moritz von Fries.

At its première, Beethoven was noted as remarking that it was one of his best works. The second movement, Allegretto, was the most popular movement and had to be encored. The instant popularity of the Allegretto resulted in its frequent performance separate from the complete symphony.[1]

Fear is the main source of superstition, and one of the main sources of cruelty. To conquer fear is the beginning of wisdom.

NEWS: THINK TWICE BEFORE DOPING


Think Twice before Doping

Doping scandals have become almost commonplace in the sports world of late. Numerous athletes have had their reputations tarnished, and in some cases their careers ended, after being caught using performance-enhancing drugs. But many more may be using and getting away with it due to the limitations of current testing methods. Researchers hope that a new screening test that is 1,000 times more sensitive than current ones will turn the tide and help them put a stop to the doping trend once and for all. More…Discuss

LEONARD COHEN : Story of Isaac (“A scheme is not a vision And you never have been tempted By a demon or a god.”)


LEONARD COHEN : Story of Isaac


Songwriters: COHEN, LEONARD
The door it opened slowly, 
My father he came in, 
I was nine years old. 
And he stood so tall above me, 
His blue eyes they were shining 
And his voice was very cold. 
He said, “I’ve had a vision 
And you know I’m strong and holy, 
I must do what I’ve been told.” 
So he started up the mountain, 
I was running, he was walking, 
And his axe was made of gold. 

Well, the trees they got much smaller, 
The lake a lady’s mirror, 
We stopped to drink some wine. 
Then he threw the bottle over. 
Broke a minute later 
And he put his hand on mine. 
Thought I saw an eagle 
But it might have been a vulture, 
I never could decide. 
Then my father built an altar, 
He looked once behind his shoulder, 
He knew I would not hide. 

You who build these altars now 
To sacrifice these children, 
You must not do it anymore. 
A scheme is not a vision 
And you never have been tempted 
By a demon or a god. 
You who stand above them now, 
Your hatchets blunt and bloody, 
You were not there before, 
When I lay upon a mountain 
And my father’s hand was trembling 
With the beauty of the world. 

And if you call me brother now, 
Forgive me if I inquire, 
“Just according to whose plan?” 
When it all comes down to dust 
I will kill you if I must, 
I will help you if I can. 
When it all comes down to dust 
I will help you if I must, 
I will kill you if I can. 
And mercy on our uniform, 
Man of peace or man of war
The peacock spreads his fan.

The Birth of WordPress: All the Hows and the Whys are here!


Interview with Matt Mullenweg: The birth and development of WordPress

Amazing: You gotta love this!
An Open Source Platform is The Open Mind; And an open mind is how humanity developed so far: wouldn’t you agree?
Imagine a car that one cannot drive, unless one know how to build it… Now: How many cars do you see on the road? I bet the number is close to none. The same concept applied to software, works in the same way: Some companies make it impossible to figure out their applications and each year come with updates that are senseless, and I believe the reasons have nothing to do with easiness of use, but rather the contrary: their way to keep the source to themselves, is by keeping the the user busy with figuring out how to do things.  That way of thinking has so little to do empowerment of the user to become creative, as it takes precious time and resources to get over the learning phase, really the “driving” (remember the analogy with the car?).
So friends: Can you see how important the way we live, and think is, and this time I’m asking you: Can you see the way we can make a difference in the world, by making things easier, lighter, more accessible, more open source, less proprietary? Sharing is openness. So the first thing that comes into mind is this: Lets start ask for a user friendly technology!
Thanks Matt,

 I enjoyed your interview on Bloomberg immensely and learned a lot from it!

George.
