          Nivel Inicial de EXCURSIÓN /Parque Arqueológico Santa Fe la Vieja ...   


La historia de la antigua ciudad de Santa Fe se descubre en las Ruinas de Santa Fe La Vieja, antiguo emplazamiento en el que pueden admirarse las huellas del ayer.


DESCRIPCIÓN:


El sitio corresponde al asentamiento en el que estuvo la ciudad de Santa Fe desde su fundación en 1573 hasta la década de 1660, cuando fue trasladada 78 kilómetros hacia el sur. Su localización y excavación se debe a Agustín Zapata Gollán (1895-1986), quien inició sus investigaciones a mediados de 1949. En el sitio pueden distinguirse dos áreas que tuvieron usos y formas de ocupación diferenciadas: el entorno de la Plaza de Armas, con solares dedicados a usos religiosos, administrativos y viviendas, y la zona de las "cuadras", dedicadas a cultivos urbanos (frutales y viñedos). El río San Javier ha erosionado el sector próximo a la Plaza, donde se encontraban la Iglesia Matriz, la Iglesia de la Compañía de Jesús, la iglesia de San Roque y la casa del propio Juan de Garay. El área actual del sitio de casi 69 hectáreas corresponde a las dos terceras partes de la traza fundacional. En este sector se ubican el remanente de la Plaza de Armas, las iglesias conventuales de San Francisco, Santo Domingo y La Merced, el Cabildo y un número significativo de viviendas, entre ellas: las de Cristóbal de Garay, nieto del fundador, y las de Alonso Fernández Montiel, Francisco de Páez, el escribano Juan de Cifuentes, Juan González de Ataide y Manuel Ravelo. De las construcciones originales se conservan partes bajas de los muros y sus cimientos, construidos con la técnica de tapia o tierra apisonada, además de fragmentos de tejas, algunas de ellas con dibujos e inscripciones. En relación con estas estructuras, las investigaciones arqueológicas han puesto a la luz un importante caudal de objetos que testimonian la vida de la ciudad hasta mediados del siglo XVII: cerámica indígena, hispano-indígena y española, porcelana oriental, tejas, ladrillos, monedas, medallas, cuentas de collares y rosarios, amuletos, útiles de labranza y herramientas. El registro arqueológico da cuenta de una sociedad compleja y pluriétnica en la que conviven españoles, mestizos, aborígenes y africanos. Dentro del recinto de los templos las excavaciones dejaron al descubierto los restos de los pobladores allí enterrados, dos centenares de sepulcros de los cuales Zapata Gollán pudo identificar algunos de los más importantes, entre ellos los de la hija de Garay, fundador de la ciudad, y su esposo Hernandarias de Saavedra, el primer gobernador criollo del Río de la Plata.

Marianne 

 

"Era verão. O céu estava azul, ensolarado e quente. O ar seco, tão seco que dava pra sentir a poeira entrando pelo nariz nos fazendo espirrar. 
Marianne estava contemplando pela última vez seu lugar favorito. Era um lugar puro, ou como dizia na placa: "Espaço Ecologico da Cidade de Abitiruc". Lá havia um banco de madeira gasto, um lago, e muitas, muitas árvores e flores coloridas. Ela amava esse lugar. Sempre ia lá pra refletir, pensar ou até mesmo encontrar uma solução pra algo. Hoje foi pra dizer adeus, talvez. Só tinha uma tentativa, uma chance de conseguir. E se não conseguisse nunca veria este lugar novamente, pois não ia querer voltar ali.
Olhou para o céu e viu que já era hora, tudo já estava certo, como ela planejara por meses. Caminhou prestando atenção em cada rua, cada edificio, cada casa, cada loja. Viu novas coisas que nunca havia visto, pois nunca prestara muita atenção por onde caminhava.
Lá do alto do edifício Rewot, repassou todo o plano em sua mente, olhou mais uma vez para o céu. 
 - "É agora!" - Pensou.
Deu um impulso forte pra frente e...
 - "VAMOS!" - Dizia...
Cada vez pegando mais velocidade... 
Quando estava quase acertando o chão, com a velocidade certa e a concentração perfeita foi como um foguete disparando em direção ao céu.
Mal conseguia enxergar além de um borrão, lá em baixo, onde deveria ser sua cidade. 
Deu outro impulso, subiu mais e mais. 
Ultrapassou a Troposfera, a Estratosfera. - "Só mais um pouco, vamos!"
O oxigênio começou a ficar cada vez mais escasso. Até acabar por completo.
Ela não precisava do oxigênio, se preparou muito bem pra isso. Anos de preparação. 
Seu nível era muito elevado pra qualquer um compreender.
Finalmente conseguiria ir pra outro planeta, outro lugar onde todos que era como ela existia: "O outro Plano". 
 - "Talvez um dia todos consigam chegar lá!"


Na calçada havia uma multidão, observando o corpo morto de uma garotinha. Havia algo diferente nela. Tinha algo no rosto dela que chamava atenção. Talvez fosse o sorriso, ou aqueles grandes olhos. Havia um brilho diferente naqueles olhos. E de alguma forma, todos que encararam aquele rosto angelical, aqueles olhos, nunca mais foram os mesmos. Dizem que alguns cometeram suidicio. Ou apenas quiseram voar."

          Using Solar Power For Your Cabin In The Woods   

Having a vacation cabin is a great way to get away from the stresses of life and enjoy the beauty of nature. The problem is that many of these cabins are in places that do not have access to the power grid.
You don't need to worry about this because there is an answer to this problem. The solution to this problem is solar power. Solar power can supply your cabin with all the energy you need and will save you the expense of having a power bill at your vacation cabin.

The first step in getting solar power on your cabin is to assess how much energy you will need. Are you going to need heat and cooling in your cabin? Do you really need a clothes dryer at your cabin or can you hang your laundry out to dry?

After you know how much power you will be using, you need to search for some quality panels and dealers. You can install the system yourself, but wiring the cabin and installing the panels can be too complicated and require special tools that the average homeowner will not be skilled enough to use.
You need to use common sense when hiring a contractor to install your solar panels.

When you decide on the contractor and types of panels you will need, think about adding a solar water heater. These systems are usually much smaller than the power systems and will reduce the power drain on the solar panels. It is a great addition to your solar powered cabin and can be done for a minimal cost.

             

Solar-Energy Usage Made Simple And Affordable

The sun's energy is harvested by solar energy systems. This helps the planet and your wallet. Solar power is a good option for homeowners and for business owners. If you are on the fence about this, then the following paragraphs should open your eyes a little.

Take baby steps in your quest for solar power. Get yourself a couple of solar energy lights if you want to use them for landscaping purposes so that you can save some energy. These can be found at many retailers including big box retailers and home improvement stores. They are as easy to install as any other garden light.

Check the density figure for your solar panels to determine the quality. High density panels cost more; however, they also produce a great deal more power. For this reason, the added expense is justified. Carefully evaluate the density and efficiency of all options before making a purchase.

If you do not want to go all out when using solar power, you can use small-scale versions. This is accomplished in one of two ways. You could attach solar panels to your windows and use these to recharge smaller electronics. You should also consider investing in small appliances that can be powered with solar panels. Every tiny thing you do will make your energy bill that much cheaper.

You should have a backup plan should your solar panels stop functioning. You can either purchase a generator, or simply stay connected to your local power grid, drawing extra power as you need it. If you go the generator route, make sure to perform tests on it often and think about getting more than one.

A wonderful long-term investment that can save you money is a solar power system. The initial costs of a solar energy system for your home is expensive. If you are not ready to settle in a particular home, solar panels may not be a good investment.

Track numbers when getting solar panels for the home. While solar panels have come a long ways, there are still instances where the costs outweigh the benefits. Do the math to figure out how much quality solar panels will cost you and how much money you will be able to save on the long-term.

There are people worldwide harvesting the suns power for themselves. Solar power has become increasingly popular and has lots to offer. You are able to cut costs and help the planet. Apply the simple information from this article to make wise solar energy decisions.

PART ONE | PART TWO | PART THREE

Let's get this out of the way first - SPOILERS! Then this: Alien: Covenant is not a very good movie. 

It's not offensively terrible, in fact it goes out of its way to be as inoffensive as possible. Even the gore seems polite. 

I'd give you a synopsis but you can just as easily take all your favorite scenes from the Alien franchise, arrange them however you please, add in a cartoon villain whose motivations are entirely incomprehensible and then go fix yourself up some Jiffy Pop.

Alien: Covenant goes to great lengths to piss away the entire ontology proposed in the film it's meant to act as a sequel to, ostensibly annihilating the god-like Engineer race in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it CGI eruption that has all the heft and drama of a 80s video game. 

But at the same time it seems to tell a story beneath the surface narrative. And a lot of its riffs will be well familiar to anyone versed in Ancient Astronaut Theory. Which, let's face it, was arguably extraneous to the running plot of Prometheus (space mission finds remains of alien race mixed up with the xenomorph progenitors).

As Gordon and I discussed, it also feels like it meant to originally serve as the advance guard for a new AAT media blitz*, a plan that appears to have been scuttled in the wake of Hurricane Trump and the resultant cold (for the time being) civil war the country has been plunged into. 

I've never seen divide-and-rule politics as divisive as what we're seeing today, with the ostensible goal being to atomize the population into impotent, squabbling subsects in order to preempt any potential challenge to oligarchal rule, even if the oligarchy itself is itself carved up into mutually antagonistic camps. (I should mention here that this whole program seems to have fired up in the wake of the Occupy movements).

Of course there's also the fact that the easiest social grouping (tribe, country, empire, etc) to conquer is one that's divided against itself. 

Just saying.

But even this miserable turn of events seems to resonate with the AAT perspective as well, specifically the "gods at war" subplot running through Zecharia Sitchin's bibliography, as well as some of the theorizing emerging on the fringe science circuit.

Now, there's a strand of thinking among those who wrestle with the Fermi Paradox, essentially arguing that high technology is inherently anti-adaptive and inevitably leads to self-destruction. 

What this theory essentially proposes is that we've not had any (acknowledged) contact with extraterrestrial races because they've all been wiped out by their own advanced technology (read: 'weaponry'). This of course is a wildly egocentric assumption ("extraterrestrial races are all as savage and murderous as we are") and automatically presumes that our own high technology is not in fact some kind of alien intrusion, even if it behaves every bit like one.

I bring this up because there are two running themes in Alien: Covenant I do want to unpack, because they do (obliquely) reference some of the basic tenets of AAT (the film seems to keep a lot of its AAT on the DL).

First off is David's genocide of the Engineer planet. This was a fairly ridiculous subplot, essentially chucking everything we were told about these beings in the first film. This is a billions year-old race that seeded all life on Earth and yet they're all defeated by a lone android who had hijacked one of their spacecraft? Huh?

Wouldn't they naturally have some kind of defense infrastructure that would have intercepted this ship before it ever reached orbit? There's no attempt at following the story's own internal logic.

Now there are all kinds of ways you could have made sense of this. The Engineers had degenerated over the millennia and lost their high technology, that they'd become so drunk on their own power that they never expected any exterior challenge, etc etc etc. But the film makes absolutely no attempt to sell any of that.

But by the same token there's a fascinating allegory at work here, even if it's unintentional, and that ties back to the war of the gods theme running through a lot of AAT theorizing. 

Note that the Engineers aren't decked up in their Gigeresque finery in the apocalypse scene but look more like the kind of quasi-Medievals familiar to space fantasy fans. They also look pretty stupid gazing up at the approaching ship like the hapless New Agers in Mars Attacks. 



But were they in fact the Engineers? Some fans don't seem to think so.

A closer look at the (humanoid) aliens in the film may suggest that this in fact was another descendant race, the clue being the skintone (matte and pinkish as opposed to chalky white and moderately reflective). They also don't seem quite as black-eyed. Another clue is their reaction to the ship, arguably suggesting these people were expecting their gods to return.

MARS, ATTACKED

Is this a fakeout or a reference to another covert subplot altogether? It's possible there was a revelation that this was just a descendant race in the original script but that all got lost in the rewriting process. 

Perhaps David's apparent plan to kill off the human colonists- who are both his progenitors and another descendant race- are the clue here. Either way, the story (mankind's cousins wiped out by a space invader) ties in pretty neatly with the theories put forth by plasma physicist Dr. John Brandenburg:
"Dr. Brandenburg has previously theorized that the red color of Mars and the radioactive substances in its soil are the result of a thermonuclear explosion from natural causes. He now says that the “high concentration” of Xenon-129 in the Martian atmosphere and uranium and thorium on the surface are remnants of two unnatural nuclear explosions, most likely triggered by alien invaders. 
"Who were these aliens invading and eventually wiping out? Brandenburg believes Mars once had a climate like Earth and was inhabited by two civilizations – one in a region called Cydonia Mensa and another at Galaxias Chaos. Why these two regions? 
'Analysis of new images from Odyssey, MRO and Mars Express orbiters now show strong evidence of eroded archeological objects at these sites.'
According to Brandenburg, the Martians maintained a high civilization, albeit a non-technological one:
He says Mars once had an Earth-like climate home to animal and plant life, and any intelligent life would have been about as advanced as the ancient Egyptians on Earth.
There's also David's genetic tinkering with the xenomorph genome. As a self-styled god, David here is playing the part suggested by AATheorists, who postulate that the Anunaki went through a series of experiments in creating the modern human genome and eradicated unwanted models while they did so. 

Strangely enough, this also correlates to the AAT-friendly origin myth put forth by the ancient Greek writer Hesiod in his landmark Works and Days. Hesiod, significantly, was apparently deeply influenced by Babylonian literature, the Enuma Elish in particular

And the war of the gods certainly correlates to the Titanomachy, or the wars between the Olympians and their progenitors, the Titans.

So is there an unspoken inference that David is the titular Prometheus, defying the "gods" and shepherding the engineered development of the xenomorph race? In the context of the film itself it's really hard to care one way or the other but it does suggest that there was in fact a lot more meat on the bone in previous drafts of the script.

THEY'RE EVERYWHERE

But it's worth noting that the Alien franchise is not only another example of a major SF property that revolves around AAT it's also an example of a SF franchise onto which AAT was grafted midstream (at the same time it was grafted onto the Predator franchise). 

Some franchises have AAT baked into their genome at conception (Star Trek (more or less), the Space Odyssey series, Battlestar Galactica) but many more seem to have it implanted sometime into their runs (Quatermass, Doctor Who, X-Files, Indiana Jones, Transformers, Jonny Quest, Godzilla, Doom, Halo, Assassin's Creed). 


When the Olympics came to Hollywood

This raises a very simple question: why? Is there in fact a AAT cargo cult at work in the entertainment industry? I mean that sounds ridiculous, right? 

Well, maybe it seems a bit less so when you look at the influence the Nine had on the Star Trek franchise (relaunching on television this year) or the fact that one of the most powerful cults in Hollywood is explicitly AAT-oriented right down to its very core. There's also the Mormon Church, which is at the very least AAT-compatible.

On the other hand, there's also the Brookings Report. 
The report has become noted for one short section entitled "The implications of a discovery of extraterrestrial life", which examines the potential implications of such a discovery on public attitudes and values. The section briefly considers possible public reactions to some possible scenarios for the discovery of extraterrestrial life, stressing a need for further research in this area. It recommends continuing studies to determine the likely social impact of such a discovery and its effects on public attitudes…" 
One detail that caught the eye of researchers like Richard Hoagland is the mention of possible artifacts discovered on our neighbors, artifacts that might call our entire view of our planet and our very existence into question.
"While face-to-face meetings with it will not occur within the next twenty years (unless its technology is more advanced than ours, qualifying it to visit Earth), artifacts left at some point in time by these life forms might possibly be discovered through our space activities on the Moon, Mars, or Venus." 
And then there's this passage, which basically explains why so many STEM types are so deeply wounded by AAT:
"It has been speculated that, of all groups, scientists and engineers might be the most devastated by the discovery of relatively superior creatures, since these professions are most clearly associated with the mastery of nature, rather than with the understanding and expression of man. Advanced understanding of nature might vitiate all our theories at the very least, if not also require a culture and perhaps a brain inaccessible to Earth scientists."  
Huh.

And the money quote: suggestions for how that eventuality- or some kind of alien contact- might be managed by the Managers.
Continuing studies to determine emotional and intellectual understanding and attitudes -- and successive alterations of them if any -- regarding the possibility and consequences of discovering intelligent extraterrestrial life. 
Historical and empirical studies of the behavior of peoples and their leaders when confronted with dramatic and unfamiliar events or social pressures. Such studies might help to provide programs for meeting and adjusting to the implications of such a discovery. Questions one might wish to answer by such studies would include: How might such information, under what circumstances, be presented to or withheld from the public for what ends?  
And lo and behold, 57 years after the Brookings Report we get this:
The solar system that humanity calls home may have once been inhabited by an extinct species of spacefaring aliens, a top scientist has suggested. 
A space scientist has suggested ancient extraterrestrials could have lived on Mars, Venus or even Earth before disappearing without a trace. 
In a fascinating academic paper about “prior indigenous technological species,” Jason T. Wright from Pennsylvania State University raised the fascinating possibility that evidence of these extinct aliens could exist somewhere in the solar system. 
Wright is an astronomer who received global attention after suggesting an “alien megastructure” had been spotted in orbit around a distant star.Now the stargazer has said advanced aliens may have left behind “technosignatures” for us to find — if only we knew where to look for them.
Of course, this is exactly what Richard Hoagland has been talking about- and has been roundly attacked for doing so- for at least the past 40 years. But I suppose it's different when the very same theorizing comes from within the priesthood.



It's funny; last night I was cutting the grass and thinking about stuff. You know, like you do when you're cutting the grass. Then I started mulling over how simplistic and repetitive the Ancient Aliens show is and how quickly Giorgio Tsoukalos transformed himself into a cartoon character. 

But then I realized that's how educational indoctrination works in our culture. 

All kinds of teaching and training materials in public schools use cartoon characters, right? Walt Disney probably made a fortune licensing his characters for educational films. And it's through repetition that people really learn anything. 

So Ancient Aliens might chew over the same gristle year after year but that helps keep its messaging consistent as its audience ebbs and flows (read: enters/graduates high school). Love it or loathe it, you have to acknowledge that there's a cogent methodology at work there. 

Government-conditioning program or cult indoctrination, they all work out of the same toolbox.

Is it all leading up to some major revelation, the way 'Disclosure' advocates expect? Or is all leading up to some massive Project Blue Beam type of hoax? 

Well,  why would anyone expect it to? Why would anyone expect the skies to open- or not- as the climax of all this conditioning? 

The answer, of course, is Hollywood. Because that's the way it works in the movies. Real life doesn't usually work that way. 

However, no matter who or what is behind all this the fact remains that, like it or don't, AAT (and the UFO topic in general) have already dramatically changed our culture, our technology and our society. Certainly our popular culture. 

Being a bit long in the tooth it still boggles my mind how many younger people take the basic assumptions of AAT for granted, even if they haven't read a page of Sitchin or Von Daniken or even watched a single Ancient Aliens. They don't have to. So much of their favorite pop culture is neck deep in it.



*You can toss in the Sekret Machines project here, spearheaded by former Blink 182 guitarist Tom Delonge and Peter Levenda of Necronomicon and Sinister Forces fame, and involving all kinds of Deep State heavies such as John Podesta.


          The Covenant and the Cargo Cult: Rune Soup interview   


On the latest Rune Soup podcast, Gordon and I discuss the disappointment that is Alien: Covenant. Then we speculate about its place in the cargo cult worldview and the conditioning agenda prescribed in 1960 by the Brookings Institution. I've been working on a companion post for this discussion, which I hope to have up by tomorrow night at the latest.

I do my best to keep up with Gordon but effort only takes you so far. I'm out of practice with these kinds of things ( I barely say a word to anyone most of the day) and I was experiencing some major fibro fog because of the miserable weather we've been having here but Gordon goes above and beyond to pick up any slack. Gordon is a bonafide genius (I don't use that term lightly) and gets my vote as the Mozart of Podcasters. 

Alien: Covenant has been cited as one of the major under-performers of the summer season and has been (rightly) trashed by YouTube critics but seems to be an important part of this 57 year-old acclimation program we've all been subjected to (slow and steady wins the race, apparently). It's probably more interesting for the things it doesn't say (but implies) than anything you're actually seeing on the screen itself.

Gordon and I also speculate as to whether the current Deep State civil war had some kind of suppressive effect on a planned-but-aborted multimedia rollout that may include the Tom DeLonge Sekret Machines program and the drip-out of news stories like the mind-boggling Jason Wright/Penn State paper on ancient aliens. I usually don't much go for the whole "disclosure" meme but if you're looking for evidence that such a thing is actually underway that's a pretty good place to start.

There's a lot we didn't get to and I'll try to address some of the points I had laid out in my notes for this show but didn't get around to raising in my next post. Looking forward to hearing your feedback about the film.

Sir Ridley Scott's long-awaited prequel to Prometheus opened this week in certain countries and is set to open in America next week. For those waiting for a continuation of the storyline from the last movie- when crew member Elizabeth Shaw and the head of android David taking off to invade the Engineer homeworld- well, I hate to say it but you're out of luck. 

The Prometheus story is referenced only as exposition, apparently.  I hope I'm not giving away any spoilers (it feels like half the movie has already been posted to YouTube in the form of trailers and excerpts) but it is what it is.



Of course, the bit with Elizabeth and David's disembodied head from Prometheus is yet another one of those bizarre and inexplicable references to John the Baptist that tentpole sci-fi movies are so fond of. Remember that John's mother was named Elizabeth*, who had her own covenant with an extraterrestrial entity (the Archangel Gabriel, in this case). 

But I digress. If you've been following the previews and the various puff pieces in the media you'll suss out that Alien: Covenant is more like a remake of the first Alien film than a sequel to Prometheus. In much the same way as the JJ Abrams' Star Wars it's meant to act a jumping-on point for the Alien franchise for post-Millennials:
If Star Wars: The Force Awakens led the way in merging fan-service universe-building with fresh heroes, stories and themes for a new generation, Alien: Covenant grabs the reboot ball and runs with it. 
Director Sir Ridley Scott has said himself how much he was impressed by Disney's handling of Star Wars' renaissance, and it's clear to see why this similarly iconic '70s sci-fi world is equally ripe for a life-extending overhaul.
The film apparently references the AAT of Prometheus but also taps into the current anxieties over AI and robots and their potential to do away with the rest of us, kind of like a more ambitious HAL 9000. Scott apparently 86'd the idea of more direct sequel to Prometheus after reading some of the negative reviews dumped on the film, which he called "a mistake":
What changed was the reaction to ‘Prometheus’, which was a pretty good ground zero reaction. It went straight up there, and we discovered from it that [the fans] were really frustrated. They wanted to see more of the original [monster] and I thought he was definitely cooked, with an orange in his mouth. So I thought: ‘Wow, OK, I’m wrong’.
Well, somebody thought Scott was wrong, "somebody" almost certainly being a Fox accountant or three. However, one SF fansite accused Scott of "selling out" by not following up on the Prometheus story and I'm sure a lot of other fans will disappointed the story was dispensed with so easily. Either way, Scott continues to make eyebrow-raising comments about aliens in the press, referring to them recently as "superior beings."
Alien creator Ridley Scott has said that he is convinced that there are extra-terrestrials out there – and one day they will come for us. The veteran director said he believed in higher beings as he prepared to release the sixth episode of the sci-fi horror series, Alien: Covenant, next month. 
“I believe in superior beings. I think it is certainly likely. An expert I was talking to at Nasa said to me, ‘Have you ever looked in the sky at night? You mean to tell me we are it?’ That’s ridiculous.” 
“So when you see a big thing in the sky, run for it,” he joked.“Because they are a lot smarter than we are, and if you are stupid enough to challenge them you will be taken out in three seconds.”
Which makes you wonder about the whole "Covenant" thing, doesn't it? 

The term is essentially religious ('contract' is more commonly used to describe written civil agreements), dating back to the Old Testament.  And seeing how that covenant was made with a god who flew around the sky in a pillar of smoke and light, and needed a special environment built in order to interact with his subjects, you do start to wonder what the implications of all this happen to be. 

Well, start with this. Like Jack Kirby (whose Eternals so inspired the first Alien film),  Scott seems to have been bitten by the ancient astronaut bug and bitten hard. I don't know what the current status is on the project but back in 2014 it was reported that Sir Scott was developing an AAT series for HBO called Pharaoh:
Scott has signed on to serve as the executive producer and director for this project, which was created and sold to the premium cable channel by David Schulner. The Hollywood Reporter explains: 
The drama explores an alternate explanation for the foundation and ascent of the ancient Egyptian empire — one in which greatness was bestowed upon us by beings from another world, calling into question what it means to be a “god.” The project was co-created by Giannina Facio and Colet Abedi, who will exec produce alongside Scott and David Zucker for Scott Free. 
His film Prometheus was partially inspired by the writings of Swiss author Erich von Daniken who is known for his books like Chariots of the Gods? and Gods From Outer Space. Von Daniken is also a regular talking head on History Channel’s Ancient Aliens.
Again, I'm not sure where Pharaoh stands today but according to an October report from Omni the project was still on. It may be why the planned Stargate reboot was reported as being put into turnaround in November. Which, if so, strikes me a bit curious. The mighty Devlin and Emmerich nosed off their turf by Sir Scott? Huh.


But there's an interesting little visual cue in one of the trailers that suggests that Scott takes AAT very seriously. The Covenant crew lands on an alien planet and discovers a familiar sight. From io9:
This alien planet that looks untouched by human hands is growing recognizable wheat, which very much has been touched by human hands. This plays into the Alien mythos that there was a race of “Engineers” that were the progenitors of humans—they’re similar to us, why wouldn’t their food be similar? And if they were traveling around, why wouldn’t they carry seeds like we do?
Why is wheat so significant in the context of the Prometheus teleology? The late Lloyd Pye explains: 
Many have "wild" predecessors that were apparently a starting point for the domesticated variety, but others--like many common vegetables--have no obvious precursors. But for those that do, such as wild grasses, grains and cereals, how they turned into wheat, barley, millet, rice, etc. is a profound mystery. 
No botanist can conclusively explain how wild plants gave rise to domesticated ones. The emphasis here is on "conclusively". Botanists have no trouble hypothesising elaborate scenarios in which Neolithic (New Stone Age) farmers somehow figured out how to hybridise wild grasses, grains and cereals, not unlike Gregor Mendel when he cross-bred pea plants to figure out the mechanics of genetic inheritance. It all sounds so simple and so logical, almost no one outside scientific circles ever examines it closely.
Modern wheat is one of those innovations that scientists revert to ontological arguments to explain. The wheat we know obviously exists so it simply had to have been the product of long-term domestication. How exactly the domestication of an essentially-inedible wild grass was domesticated into a modern foodcrop-- over the span of centuries, mind you, if not millennia-- by illiterate Stone Age farmers is never exactly made clear. Pye again:
 On the other hand, those New Stone Age farmers who were fresh out of their caves and only just beginning to turn soil for the first time (as the ”official” scenario goes), somehow managed to transform the wild grasses, grains and cereals growing around them into their domesticated ”cousins”. Is that possible? Only through a course in miracles! Actually, it requires countless miracles within two large categories of miracles.  
The seeds and grains were maddeningly small, like pepper flakes or salt crystals, which put them beyond the grasping and handling capacity of human fingers. They were also hard, like tiny nutshells, making it impossible to convert them to anything edible. Lastly, their chemistry was suited to nourishing animals, not humans. So wild varieties were entirely too small, entirely too tough and nutritionally inappropriate for humans. 
They needed to be greatly expanded in size, greatly softened in texture and overhauled at the molecular level–which would be an imposing challenge for modern botanists, much less Neolithic farmers.  
Despite the seeming impossibility of meeting those daunting objectives, modern botanists are confident the first sodbusters had all they needed to do it: time and patience. Over hundreds of generations of selective crossbreeding, they consciously directed the genetic transformation of the few dozen that would turn out to be most useful to humans. And how did they do it? By the astounding feat of doubling, tripling and quadrupling the number of chromosomes in the wild varieties! 
Domestic wheat and oats were elevated from an ancestor with seven chromosomes to their current 42–an expansion by a factor of six.”
Remember that the cultivation of wheat brought about the rise of the Sumerians, who had oddly intimate relationships with their gods (the Anunaki, of course). The ancient Greeks were certain that wheat was the gift of a god; Demeter, in this case. It was the final "mystery" in the dramas put on at Eleusis. The Egyptians credited wheat to Osiris, the star-sailor.  So its inclusion in this film hardly seems incidental. On the contrary; it looks as if someone were doing their homework.

Now, longtime readers of The Secret Sun realize that nearly every major SF franchise of the past 50 years (starting with 2001: A Space Odyssey) is centered around ancient astronaut theory in one way or the other. 

Star Trek, Doctor Who, Star Wars (arguably), Battlestar GalacticaAlien (of course), Stargate, The X-Files, Transformers, Indiana Jones and the entire Marvel and DC Universes all established their creation myths, in varying degrees, as the work of advanced extraterrestrial interlopers. Does that seem coincidental to you? It certainly does not to me.

There've also been a ton of less-visible but still-signficant TV shows and movies that have done the same, like Jonny Quest, The Phoenix, The Man from Atlantis as well as Childhood's End, Cocoon, Hangar 18, countless American and Japanese cartoons (even the hugely-popular cardgame/anime property Yu-Gi-Oh). So much so that you can't help but wonder if there's not a very powerful cargo cult at work behind the scenes in Tinseltown.


Bearing all that in mind, as well as the Ancient Aliens cable show (now in its 12th season), researchers might be forgiven for believing this was all part of some long-running conditioning program. You know, kind of like the one suggested by the Brookings Institution report back in 1960. 

Or exactly like it, actually.

Researchers would be especially forgiven in light of this recent blockbuster news story:
Was our solar system once home to an advanced civilization other than our own — perhaps one that predated humanity by hundreds of millions of years before being wiped out by an asteroid impact or some other cataclysm? 
There's no evidence for such a pre-human indigenous technological species, though people have been speculating about one since ancient times. But a respected space scientist points out in a provocative new paper that if the existence of home-grown intelligent space aliens has never been established, it's never been ruled out either. 
And if a race of smart and perhaps spacefaring aliens did make their home in our solar system, traces of their lost civilization might still be out there somewhere in the system just waiting for us to find them.
Quite a "synchronicity," don't you think?

          Chaos Magic vs The Robot Revolution    


There are two divergent streams at work in the Idea-o-Sphere, currents that are not only divergent in size, strength and assumption, but are in fact antithetical. 

The most dominant, of course, is the imminent AI-Robot Revolution, which threatens to bring a very real apocalypse into our world if in fact it flowers as predicted (and isn't just a big scare to keep the peons from asking for raises). 

So we're hearing that not only truck drivers, widget drillers and burger flippers are at risk of imminent penury, so too are lawyers, doctors, accountants and all manner of other professionals whose livelihood is based in their capacity to process huge chunks of complicated data and subsequently make decisions and judgments that are useful to others who can't. 

Programmers- and AIs themselves- are currently working around the clock to fill the shoes of these well-paid professionals with cheap, off-the-shelf software programs that will reliably get that same cognitive work done at a tiny fraction of the cost.

Elon Musk is (ostensibly) so terrified of the AI Revolution he is planning to colonize Mars as a life-raft for the human race, who presumably will have to flee a Skynet/Terminator type scenario. That Mars is utterly incapable of supporting human life- at least at present- seems to be besides the point.

Jack Ma, the Chinese billionaire behind social media giant Alibaba, has suddenly turned Cassandra as well. Long a reliable source for corporate technohappytalk, Ma is suddenly warning of dark days ahead.
"In the next three decades, the world will experience far more pain than happiness," the billionaire said, adding that education systems must raise children to be more creative and curious or they will be ill-prepared for the future. 
Robots are quicker and more rational than humans, Ma said, and they don't get bogged down in emotions -- like getting angry at competitors.
Terrific. I was just thinking what the world needs now is more pain than happiness. But given his position as a Techno-Celestial, Ma couldn't serve up the medicine without at least a tiny spoonful of sugar:
But he expressed optimism that robots will make life better for humans in the long run. 
"Machines will do what human beings are incapable of doing," Ma said. "Machines will partner and cooperate with humans, rather than become mankind's biggest enemy."
"Make life better for humans in the long run," he says. Well, what exactly is "the long run?" Three decades is a long time- maybe even a lifetime- for that 99.99999999999% of the human race who aren't tech billionaires. Halfway through that painful three decades most of us aren't going to be thinking much about "the long run." 

And what exactly does "far more pain" imply? I'm not sure I want to know what Jack Ma's definition of pain actually means, given our disparate cultural contexts. 

It's here I begin to think back on last year's Lucifer's Technologies series (more accurately, Satan's Technologies) and wonder about where our modern electronic superstructure actually came from. Because that goes a long way in gleaning where it's actually going. 
Many have claimed that our present technology arose from contact with alien intelligences. Whether you believe that or not, one thing is certain; the rate of technological progress shot up like a rocket shortly after the end of World War II. 
And it must be said that technology seems more and more like an invasive-- or alien-- contagion, disrupting entire industries, economies, and communities.  
Now techno-utopians like Jaron Lanier and Douglas Rushkoff are techno-cassandaras, preaching a message of dislocation and social collapse.  
Look at it this way; steam engines had been known for almost 2000 years by the time the Industrial Revolution took hold, longer still if you consider prototypes. The Ancient Greeks knew them, they just didn't have any use for them. 
But the evolution from a computer that was was essentially the size of a suburban house and boasted the power of a pocket calculator to the working prototypes of the desktop, the Internet, computer animation, teleconferencing and nearly everything else we take for granted today took just a little more than two decades. 
An eyeblink of history.
For at least 5000 years-- five-hundred decades-- horse-drawn carriages and wooden ships with cloth or leather sails were the state of art in transportation technology. By contrast, we go from aeroplanes made of wood and canvas to the SR-71 Blackbird, a machine so advanced our best engineers today seem unable to match it*, in the space of four decades. 
In historical terms, this is as if your three year-old were in nursery school one day and then graduated from Harvard at the top of her class as soon as she turned four. There's simply no precedent for the high-tech explosion that began in the late 1940s... 
Yet no one stops to question how such a technology would arise so instantly, in historical terms. Go look at a book from the late 19th Century- hell, look at a children's book from that period- and tell me people weren't a hell of a lot smarter than they are today. Maybe even smarter than they were in the 1940s... 
Yet even the best and the very brightest were stymied by problems for decades, problems that seemed to solve themselves, literally overnight, shortly after World War II.
We take it all for granted now, especially if you were born at a time when a Commodore 64 and an Atari console were part of your natural landscape. But in fact all of this technology is so anomalous, so disruptive, so improbable in the entirety of human history (never mind natural history) that it is in a very real sense alien, even if (on the offhand chance) it's not actually "alien."

Well, we've been over all of that before, haven't we? What about that other current?



In Our Gods Wear Spandex I argued that Spiritualism, Theosophy and the Occult Revival were reactions to the massive dislocations- physical, spiritual, psychic- incurred by the Industrial Revolution. It wasn't unusual for the sensitives of the time- see Blake, William, to see the rise of large-scale factories  as an invasion of Hell onto Earth. 

There was very good reason to do so; these were black, belching, smogpits filled with hazardous machinery and/or chemicals that ripped the folk up from communion with the Earth and into virtual (sometimes actual) prisons, in which their humanity was stripped away in service of industrial manufacturing.

In response to the dehumanizing effect of these hells, the sensitives of the time reached back into humanity's childhood (in the case of Spiritualism) or its adolescence (as with the Classically-oriented secret societies). And it could be argued that it worked- that we didn't entirely surrender to the regimented reality of the factory writ large, that Industrial political systems like Nazism and Communism were held at bay (at least in their original incarnation) and that individuality was held up as a social good. 

Well, at least until it was subverted as a tool for political atomization.

The counter-Industrial spiritual movements of the 19th Century weren't shy about co-opting the means of mass-production (in this case, industrial-scale publishing) to pursue their aims. And so it is with the new breed of Chaos magicians and their fellow travelers (I'm not sure if meme magic counts here), some of whom are themselves well-paid Skynet employees, many of whom are tech-savvy and nearly all of whom are plugged deep into the Grid. Becoming the ghost in the machine is the basic idea.

Magic, in this context, acts kind of like Jacques Vallee's "Control System." Things get too hot (or cold, depending on your own worldview) with technology and regimentation and Magic comes in and turns on the AC (or cranks up the woodstove, again according to your POV). 

Magic and its cousin Psi are erratic and unreliable for most people at most times but when the pressure comes down they become attractive alternatives to the crushing predictability of the Black Iron Prison. It may also, in the form of collective ritual, grow in popularity as a tonic against the  the paradoxical effect of social media to grow loneliness in Meatspace.
While it offers an easy way to keep in contact with friends — and meet new people through dating and friendship apps — technology's omnipresence encourages shallow conversations that can distract us from meaningful, real-life, interactions. 
Researchers at the University of Essex found that having a phone nearby, even if we don't check it, can be detrimental to our attempts at connecting with others. Smartphones have transformed post office lines from a chance for some small-talk with the neighbors to an exercise in email-checking, and sealed the fate of coffee shops as nothing more than places of mutual isolation. And technology will only become more ingrained in our lives.
The isolating, dehumanizing effect of technology may once again find its match in the ancient power of ritual, everything from lighting candles at a Catholic shrine to meth-fueled fuck-a-thons while drenched in pig's blood. The collapse of conventional social mores and the now-standard presumption that anything you do that isn't harming anyone else is your lifestyle choice will certainly push all this forward. 

Remember too that this same impulse popped up as a reaction to the hyper-rationalism of Classical Greece with the rise of the Mystery Cults.

Magic almost seems like Nature asserting herself in the face of an outside intervention. Its like the doggedly-persistent vines rising out of toxic soil and strangling the rusted girders of an abandoned factory. Or a stubborn strain of virus slashing its way through some futuristic megalopolis somewhere in the Pacific Rim. 

Or a solar flare frying all of our electronics for good in the blink of an eye.



Now I know it's extremely unfashionable these days to discuss such things, especially with most Chaos magicians, but you have to ask yourself, if computer technology is not an alien virus why does it behave exactly like one?  I don't know about you but it sure as hell sounds to me like Elon Musk believes it is, though he'd never say so publicly. 

Computer technology has already destroyed entire industries, disrupted entire societies, and changed every aspect of our lives in 70 short years? And now we're being told that it threatens to create an entire infrastructure that will make most of us obsolete? I don't know about you but it sure as Hell sounds an awful lot like Borg-assimilation, only on a frog-boiling schedule.

The question becomes if the host can fight off the infection, or at least learn to manage it and coexist with it. I can't begin to pretend I know the answer but it seems to me that reasserting our messy, chaotic humanity is probably a good place to start.

          The Present Can Only Be Viewed from the Past   


2017 might seem like the hangover after a particularly-nasty meth, glue and Thunderbird bender, but it's actually a year of major anniversaries. We're coming up on the 70th Anniversary of Kenneth Arnold and Roswell (as well as the National Security Act), the 50th Anniversary of Sgt. Pepper and the Summer of Love and the centennial of the Russian Revolution. But there are a lot more observances, all kinds of 'ennials to observe. 

I thought I'd dig into a few anniversaries germane to The Secret Sun and the topics we look at here. Readers are encouraged to weigh in with their own (observations that can be counted in multiples of five and ten, that is) in the comments.

December will see the fifth anniversary of the 2012 apocalypse/ascension/ absurdity (depending on your point of view). Needless to say, most of us are still here and the skies didn't open and Nibiru didn't come crashing into the moon. So there goes another apocalypse. 

I can't help but wonder about the 2012 meme, though. As I wrote a couple years back, it certainly seems like something changed that year, that the bottom fell out somewhere but no one seemed to notice it at the time. 

I mean, Donald Trump is sitting in the White House, isn't he? If even you're a Trump supporter you have to admit this would have seemed impossible five years ago.

Maybe the Apocalypse works on a different timeline than it does in the movies. Maybe we're living in one only we can't see the forest fire for the burning trees. History can only be written from a distance.

2007 was the year Our Gods Wear Spandex was published and the year I began actively blogging on this site, so Happy Ten Year Anniversary to me. It's also the year that a newly-elected Senator - with a weird, oblique connection to the Council of Nine - announced his candidacy for President.


This week marks the 20th anniversary of the Heaven's Gate suicides, an event I've gone into some detail on this blog. Whatever the media might have you believe the Gate were a bonafide modern Gnostic sect, were serious and rigorous about their work and were deeply troubled by the emergence of the techno-surveillance state they saw emerging at the time. 

This week also marks the 20th anniversary of the last of the Order of the Solar Temple "suicides" ( rendered in quotes since many investigators suspect foul play by outside parties with the OST mass deaths). I wrote in some detail about the OST and their influence on pop culture here (the X-Files writers seemed especially fascinated with the OST and their unique status and history and the lingering questions over their deaths).

Postmortem reports claimed that the OST committed ritual suicide in order to spiritually ascend to Sirius, where they believe their souls originated from. If this is true this is another troubling link to the "Walk-Ins from Sirius" theme from Ruth Montgomery's seminal Aliens Among Us, which has also been linked to the Heaven's Gate suicides.

Last week marked the 20th anniversary of the Phoenix Lights flap, a controversial UFO sighting that caused a major media meltdown and has been the focus of a growing mythology ever since. What is particularly interesting about the Phoenix episode- however you view it-- is that it took place right down the highway from the Heaven's Gate compound in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. 

It may have been seen as the final sign that their ride was here, seeing as how the web-savvy cult was monitoring all kinds of infostreams for omens and portents. 

Next week also marks the 20th anniversary of the Outer Limits episode "Double Helix," which plays out like an idealized fantasy world version of Marshall Applewhite's most cherished beliefs. 

Seeing as how the suicides were discovered before its airing it plays like an elegy, a bizarre epitaph for the cult, its leader and their beliefs. How the hell that happened is anyone's guess.

Speaking of double helixes, 1997 saw the announcement that the first major cloning had been done, of "Dolly" the sheep. The news was broken in Roslin, Scotland, of all places (Dan Brown fans take note). More ominously it was also the year IBM's Deep Blue beat Garry Kasparov in chess. 

Coincidentally or not, Steve Jobs returned to Apple a few months later and changed the world as we knew it. One of his last projects was designing the Apple HQ, which looks like a friggin' flying saucer.

Why do all those events feel so closely entwined? We can't say we weren't warned.



1987 is the 30th anniversary of the publication of Whitley Strieber's seminal autobiography Communion, which brought the concept of alien abduction out of the fringes and into book store in America and other parts of the world. 

It's hard to explain to younger people what a phenomenon this book was, the controversy it engendered, and the effect it had on the culture. Strieber was a well-known author of best-selling horror novels, a couple of which had been adapted into movies (Wolfen and The Hunger) but never enjoyed a success like Communion, which stayed on the New York Times best-sellers list for months and sold millions worldwide.

Daytime talkshows were suddenly fora for abductees, whether real or imagined, as were popular tabloid TV shows like Unsolved Mysteries. The craze made celebrities out of Strieber, abduction researchers like Budd Hopkins and David Jacobs and later, Harvard psychologist John Mack. 

Oldline UFO researchers stewed on the sidelines, having traditionally regarded abduction reports with suspicion, if not contempt. Communion would lead to other projects, the Travis Walton biopic Fire in the Sky, The X-Files (which became an even greater phenomenon than Strieber's book), and the Steven Spielberg maxi-series Taken (which would be the SciFi Channel's most-watched series at the time of its airing).



1987 was also the year New Age seeped into the mainstream and has been insidiously rewriting its host body like a computer virus ever since. Pop culture was the medium yet again- a miniseries based on Shirley MacLaine's "spiritual authobiography" Out On a Limb was aired on ABC and planted the seeds for the Me Generation's catch-as-catch-can Theosophy 2.0. 

1987 saw "Ramtha" go wide with the publication of JZ Knight's autobiography, A State of Mind. Channeling soon became a multimiilion dollar industry, with hundreds of mini-Ramtha's popping out of the woodwork dispensing greeting card homilies for a spiritually-indiscriminate polity.

All you needed to do was squint, loll your head around meaningfully, adopt a weird quasi-British accent and learn to spout pseudo-profoundities and you were in clover.

Again, the New Age craze is hard to explain today, though in large part because the New Age is so ubiquitous today it's woven into the cultural fabric of most Western- and many non-Western- cultures. 

Yoga studios can be found in every sizable American town. Acupuncture and other "alternative" modalities are often covered by health insurance programs. Health food stores are slowly displacing conventional supermarkets and many more traditional houses of worship offer New Age programs (meditation, yoga, self-actualization) to their congregants.

1987 also saw the Harmonic Convergence (aka the "New Age Woodstock"), meant to act as the movement's big hop over the cultural fence. But its organizers (which included the original 2012 guru, Jose Arguelles) deeply misjudged the true nature of the movement and how it actually existed in the ideational biosphere. 

This wasn't a revolution, it was a slow-moving insurrection, one that subverted culture from within, all the while denying its very existence (the hallmark of a true New Ager is that they deny actually being a New Ager). Big, showy events weren't going to do the work. Tenacious, relentless but quieter actions were going to insinuate New Age into the mainstream.



1987 saw the Iran-Contra Affair- in which arms were sold to Iran in exchange for American hostages held by Iran-controlled radicals and the profits then diverted to anti-Sandinista militants in Nicaragua- become the major news story, dominating the headlines and Sunday talk shows for the entire year and into the next. 

Iran-Contra is also arguably the impetus for the true mainstreaming of conspiracy theory (just in time for the dawning of the Internet Era). Conspiracy research wasn't a fringe hobby then, it was front page news all across the world. It's just that the virus escaped from the lab and filtered down into places the mainstream media would have rather it hadn't.

But the real groundwork for the rise of conspiracy culture would be laid ten years earlier when the first fully-functional home computer, the Commodore PET was debuted at a trade show. 

Conspiracy theory may have thrived on talk radio (and short wave and ham radio, not to mention mail order) but it would explode on the Internet, even in the crudest venues of the BBS dial-in days.

At the same time the Commodore was unveiled, a new President from Plains, Georgia took office who swore to tear the lid off government corruption (and significantly, UFO secrecy) in Washington. 

Things, predictably, wouldn't work out so well for him.

1977 saw the commoditization of the modern Hollywood blockbuster-- already having birthed itself in 1975 with Steven Spielberg's Jaws. 

George Lucas' spiritual SF epic Star Wars and Spielberg's UFO fantasia Close Encounters of the Third Kind changed the rules forever (you can throw in Saturday Night Fever if you like, as it spawned the rise of the blockbuster soundtrack as well) and, as many would argue, planted the seeds for the eventual creation empoverishment of the Hollywood they created.

In today's market, doubles and triples are no longer be enough, you need to either write a movie off as a tax loss or score a grand slam blockbuster, complete with merchandising and ancillary rights.

But Star Wars and Close Encounters were such monsters because they filled a genuine void in the culture, a need for miracle and transcendence in a rapidly-secularlizing culture. In their wake the movies would become the dream theater of the masses, in the same way the great cathedrals were to the peasants of the Middle Ages.

Both films struck at the right time- NASA tested its first space shuttle at the beginning of the year, promising a new era in space exploration. One that has yet to come to pass, 40 years later. Even so the mood was right at the time.

On the other end of the ritual spectrum 1977 also saw the arrest of David Berkowitz, whom the media named as the sole "Son of Sam" killer despite the fact that witnesses had cogently and explicitly described other shooters not matching his description. 

Berkowitz himself would later claim he was a member of a sect of the Process Church of the Final Judgement, he was not the only shooter and that the killings were human sacrifices. And as fate would have it two of the men he claimed as his accomplices would die under mysterious circumstances not long after Berkowitz was arrested. 

And their father was named Sam.

Also in the summer of 1977, Elvis Presley died after a long struggle with obesity and prescription drug abuse. 

It was poetic in a Greek tragedy kind of fashion since '77 not only saw the precipitous rise of Disco as an all-consuming craze (Donna Summer had the first hit with a totally-synthesized record, "I Feel Love," that year) but also the breakthrough of punk rock and first-wave New Wave (the Sex Pistols, the Clash, Elvis Costello and Talking Heads all released their debuts), which took the basic, four to the floor rock 'n' roll Presley cut his teeth on and wed it to postmodernism, Dada and other weird, Continental theories that old-timers like the King would never have anything to do with.

Not that most of America even noticed. The Eagles' Hotel California, Pink Floyd's Animals and Fleetwood Mac's Rumors were albums most of the public were actually buying. Punk bombed bad in its first assault on American record stores and most of the first wave bands would soon break up or radically water down their styles in a bid to make it to the US Top 40. 

New Wave, which began as a marketing ploy to ease punk into the American market, would become the musical equivalent of New Age, a contagion that would insinuate itself into the host and rewrite the matrix from within. 

40 years later New Wave concepts are so dominant (irony and sarcasm not the least among them) in pop they're no longer recognized as distinct or unique. But that process began in earnest over 35 years ago, when MTV began beaming art school weirdos from England into a growing number of American living rooms. 

In short order even Jethro Tull and Bob Dylan- the onetime crunchiest of the crunchy- were recording with drum machines and sequencers.

There's more to come.

Mês pífio.
Profissionalmente ruim.
Pessoalmente , melhorou um pouco. Arrumei um refúgio. Um lugar para ter paz de espírito. Só estou com medo de me isolar e "deixar a vida me levar". As forças para lutar por condições melhores se enfraquecem cada vez mais. Cadê o brio, a resiliência, a determinação? Cadê?

Muito bom ver o pobreta explodindo. É a famosa "inveja branca". Ele foi a inspiração para a maioria dos blogeiros que divulgam patrimônio começarem a postar. Eu achava que um dia ia passa-lo. Mas grande inocência minha. Não com essa estratrégia. Hoje, mais do que nunca sei que vou chegar no milhão, só que não vou conseguir me libertar da matrix desse jeito... a IF na verdade vai se transformar em uma aposentadoria tranquila.

Como eu me sinto com a IF.

Sem mais.

          PRECE DE ISMAEL   
itunes pic
Segundo o dicionário Lello Universal, Ismael foi uma personagem bíblica. Era filho de Abraão e sua criada Agar, antepassados dos ismaelitas ou árabes. Segundo a Bíblia, Ismael desposou uma egípcia de quem teve doze filhos, que se estabeleceram na região entre o Egito e o Golfo Pérsico. Um grande número de tribos pretendia descender de Ismael. Maomé, o profeta, colocou-o então à frente de sua genealogia. Entretanto, para os espíritas, esse Espírito representa um importante papel para o movimento. Um grupo o eleva às alturas, considerando-o um “Anjo”. Outro o coloca como o “vilão” da história do Espiritismo. O primeiro é formado pelos roustainguistas, que, em janeiro de 1884 assumiram o poder na chamada Pátria do Evangelho (Brasil), instalando seu domínio na sede da Federação Espírita Brasileira, na qual somente quem é declaradamente roustainguista pode ocupar o alto cargo de presidente O segundo é formado pelos antiroustainguistas, que não só repudiam a obra de Roustaing, como, ao mesmo tempo, denunciam e criticam amargamente a presença do Espírito de Ismael porque, no entendimento deles, não poderia nunca desempenhar o papel de Guia do Brasil. Mas, enquanto as duas facções discutem se Ismael é ou não um anjo, e se realmente é o Guardião do Brasil, uma terceira corrente avança, beneficiando-se de sua profunda e reconfortante prece, que evoca a presença de Jesus para consolar, iluminar e redimir a humanidade pecadora. A versão aqui apresentada foi extraída do livro PRECES ESPÍRITAS, de Caibar Schutel. Narração de Sérgio Mello.

          Frases de "El principito" de Antoine de Saint-Exupéry   
El principito, esa maravillosa obra maestra que el aviador francés Antoine de Saint-Exupéry  escribió hace tantos años y que todavía hoy sigue vendiendo ejemplares; y es que es una novela única donde las haya que ha enamorado a miles de lectores a lo largo del tiempo. Puede parecer una historia para niños, pero en realidad todo el libro es una metáfora que trata temas tan profundos como el sentido de la vida, la amistad, el amor...que hace pensar y reflexionar al lector. Es uno de mis lecturas predilectas que nunca me canso de releer y es principalmente el culpable de que a mis 28 años siga siendo un poco niña , pero es que la vida de adulto es, en ocasiones, muy aburrida.

Os dejó una recopilación de algunas de sus frases más célebres, hay más, muchas más, ponerlas todas sería casi, casi, transcribir el libro ¡¡Espero que os gusten tanto como a mí!!

   

*Todas las personas mayores fueron al principio niños. (Aunque pocas de ellas lo recuerdan.)

*Las personas mayores nunca son capaces de comprender las cosas por sí mismas, y es muy aburrido para los niños tener que darles una y otra vez explicaciones

Resultado de imaxes para imagenes el principito*Cuando el misterio es demasiado impresionante, es imposible desobedecer

*Solo se ve bien con el corazón, lo esencial es invisible a los ojos

*A los mayores les gustan las cifras. Cuando se les habla de un nuevo amigo, jamás preguntan sobre lo esencial del mismo. Nunca se les ocurre preguntar: “¿Qué tono tiene su voz? ¿Qué juegos prefiere? ¿Le gusta coleccionar mariposas?” Pero en cambio preguntan: “¿Qué edad tiene? ¿Cuántos hermanos? ¿Cuánto pesa? ¿Cuánto gana su padre?” Solamente con estos detalles creen conocerle.

*Me pregunto si las estrellas se iluminan con el fin de que algún día, cada uno pueda encontrar la suya

  • *Conozco un planeta en el que vive un señor muy colorado. Nunca ha olido una flor. Nunca ha contemplado una estrella. Nunca ha amado a nadie. Nunca ha hecho otra cosa que sumas. Se pasa el día diciendo, como tú: “¡Soy un hombre serio! ¡Soy un hombre serio!”, lo que le hace hincharse de orgullo. Pero eso no es un hombre, ¡es un hongo!.

*Se debe pedir a cada cual, lo que está a su alcance realizar

*Caminando en línea recta no puede uno llegar muy lejos



  • *Fue el tiempo que pasaste con tu rosa lo que la hizo tan importante.

  • *Lo hermoso del desierto es que en cualquier parte esconde un pozo

  • *Los hombres ocupan muy poco lugar sobre la Tierra… Las personas mayores no les creerán, seguramente, pues siempre se imaginan que ocupan mucho sitio.

  • *No era más que un zorro semejante a cien mil otros. Pero yo le hice mi amigo y ahora es único en el mundo.

  • *Si alguien ama a una flor de la que sólo existe más que un ejemplar entre los millones y millones de estrellas, es bastante para que sea feliz cuando mira a las estrellas.

  • *Sólo se conocen bien las cosas que se domestican.            

  • *Tú no eres para mí todavía más que un muchachito igual a otros cien mil muchachitos. Y no te necesito. Tampoco tú tienes necesidad de mí. No soy para ti más que un zorro entre otros cien mil zorros semejantes. Pero si me domesticas, entonces tendremos necesidad el uno del otro. Tú serás para mí único en el mundo, yo seré para ti único en el mundo…

  • *Y cuando te hayas consolado (uno siempre termina por consolarse) te alegrarás de haberme conocido

*Es una locura odiar a todas las rosas sólo porque una te pinchó. Renunciar a todos tus sueños sólo porque uno de ellos no se cumplió

  • *Me creía rico con una flor única y resulta que no tengo más que una rosa ordinaria

  • *Es mucho más difícil juzgarse a sí mismo que juzgar a los demás. Si logras juzgarte bien a ti mismo eres un verdadero sabio

  • *Si vienes, por ejemplo, a las cuatro de la tarde; desde las tres yo empezaría a ser dichoso

  • *Únicamente los niños saben lo que buscan. Pierden el tiempo con una muñeca de trapo que viene a ser lo más importante para ellos y si se la quitan, lloran…

*Cuando mires al cielo, por la noche, como yo habitaré en una de ellas, como yo reiré en una de ellas, será para ti como si rieran todas las estrellas. ¡Tú y solo tú tendrás estrellas que saben reír


      



          Making Solar Panels To Boost Energy Savings!   

If you’ve noticed, more and more homeowners are making solar panels for their homes. At this current time, we’re seeing a decline in global energy sources, and also the effects of global warming on climates around the world. Unsurprisingly, individuals are increasingly seeking renewable sources of fuel as a way to mitigate their impact on the environment. Solar energy is one such renewable energy that is fast gaining popularity. Know, however, that solar panels on roofs can be as expensive as several thousand dollars. However, assistance is available for typical residential owners trying to reduce monthly energy use and go greener simultaneously.

I know of many resourceful folks who have turned to the many excellent DIY self-help resources that help them build their own home solar panels - and on the cheap too!

Making solar panels by oneself is easy and very doable. The downside used to be that these panels are usually small to begin with and are unable to generate the necessary wattage and can only power simple appliances for a short time only.

Should you be very interested in harvesting the sun’s energy but can’t afford to hire installation experts, your ideal option is to begin with a solar panel package. These generally furnish all that’s required to construct a solar panel set-up for your residence or yard.

Packages for solar panel systems are not difficult to locate. A number of large corporations such as BP and GE make these items for a very reasonable price. Greatest yet, making solar panels yourself means you’ll be reimbursed for your expenditure far sooner than if you had hired installation experts. Don’t be afraid of the DIY process! I’ve personally done this, and have seen many folks, even their teenage children who found the process fun and educational.

A number of terrific resources and instruction manuals are available that take you step-by-step through the construction of solar panels by yourself. There are guides designed just for DIY novices and these are easy to follow, complete with FULL illustrations and videos that take you by the hand through the entire process.

The greatest aspect of DIY is you can begin minimally, with sufficient energy to operate minor appliances, and eventually broaden into a big group of solar panels to actually run your entire house with solar energy! And since you’ve been through the fundamentals, at this point you’ll possess the basic know-how to accomplish this, with no need to call in the experts!

To best benefit yourself and the future well being of your children you should attempt to utilize free energy by making solar panels. At last, you can get out from under the hold of the power companies, all while helping the environment,too!

Want to make your own solar panels but don’t know where to start?

Fret not! Many people just like you have successfully built these on their own to DRASTICALLY cut their monthly electricity consumption. They are already shaving $1000s off their energy bills every year. If you need STEP-BY-STEP guidance in installing one, I have reviewed the Best Online Guides on => Homemade Solar Panels for your convenience. These highly recommended guides provide EASY-TO-FOLLOW instructions that will help you save money in no time.

          Aluar construirá parque eólico que demandará u$s 815 millones de inversión   


Aluar, la única empresa fabricante de aluminio del país, con planta en Puerto Madryn, Chubut, comenzará en los próximos días las obras de instalación de su propio parque eólico con la correspondiente línea de alta tensión, que demandará una inversión total de 815 millones de dólares.
La compañía es una industria electrointensiva que utiliza la energía como insumo imprescindible para transformar la aluminita en aluminio mediante un proceso de electrólisis que informó hoy que modificó su estatuto social para incluir las nuevas actividades energéticas, que se desarrollarán a través de la firma controlada Genpat.
En una nota enviada a la Bolsa de Comercio de Buenos Aires, Aluar comunicó hoy que fueron incorporados al estatuto los objetivos de producción de “energía eólica, térmica y solar”, y de comercialización de energía eléctrica “generada en cualquiera de sus formas”. 
Aluar obtuvo semanas atrás el visto bueno de las autoridades ambientales de la provincia, mientras a fines de marzo pasado se realizó la correspondiente audiencia obligatoria, según confirmaron a Télam fuentes de la empresa.
 
La potencia instalada total del parque será de 510 megavatios (MW), mientras la línea de alta tensión de 132 KW tendrá una extensión de 21,4 kilómetros para transportar la energía generada.
El proyecto implicará la instalación de 170 molinos en 3 etapas, al oeste de la ruta nacional 3 y al norte de la ruta provincial 4, sobre una superficie de 140 kilómetros cuadrados, a unos 10 kilómetros de Puerto Madryn.
“Al desafectar algo más de 14.000 hectáreas de la actividad ganadera tradicional se estimula la recuperación de la diversidad vegetal y faunística del predio dedicado al proyecto”, destacó Aluar.
La primera etapa se concretará en no más de un año, mediante la instalación de 16 molinos de 180 metros de altura y con una potencia de 3,45 MW, que es mayor a los 2 MW de los aerogeneradores actualmente en operación.
La energía generada inicialmente no irá al Sistema Interconectado Nacional, sino que suplirá el uso de combustibles fósiles y asegurará el autoabastecimiento de Aluar.
El proyecto ubicará a la provincia de Chubut como la jurisdicción de mayor generación de energía eólica en el país, con tres parques, considerando el que construirá Genpat y los que están en funcionamiento, en las inmediaciones de las ciudades de Trelew y Rawson.
Según se estima, el emprendimiento requerirá en promedio 250 puestos de trabajo durante los 5 años de corresponden a las etapas de construcción y montaje.
 
La compañía planea complementar a mediano plazo sus actuales fuentes de provisión energética: la central hidroeléctrica de Futaleufú (que posee en un 60% y cuya potencia es de 472 MW) y la planta de generación térmica de ciclo combinado de Puerto Madryn.
 
Aluar también posee el 20,4% de Transpa, compañía encargada del transporte de energía eléctrica en la región, a través de dos líneas de 330 KW de 550 kilómetros de longitud.
En lo que respecta al estudio ambiental del proyecto, se destacan “aspectos positivos” como la menor emisión de gases de efecto invernadero: “por cada GWh generado a partir de fuentes renovables se evita la emisión de 500 toneladas de CO2 si se compara con la energía eléctrica que se obtiene por medio de una central térmica que consume combustibles fósiles‘, describe el estudio.
Se señalan también ‘aspectos negativos”, entre los que se menciona que los molinos interferirán sobre la visual del horizonte para las personas que circulan por las rutas nacional 3 y A010, y provincial 4.
Para instalar los equipos se realizará el desmonte de la cobertura vegetal autóctona en el 2% de la superficie de terreno dedicada el proyecto.

          Damn Banks   
Both Abu Dhabi and Dubai have become huge world financial centers in the past 40 years. With the oil export and tourism income there is plenty of cash flow that attracts international banks as well as made home grown institutions very wealthy. For the most part these banks are some of the safest and most innovative in the world. One can even instantly pay a parking meter or almost any bill from a cell phone text message.

However, the banking business must be the lowest risk enterprise in the UAE. I am sure they take care of each other and big corporate clients in the "Good Old Boy " club but the ordinary retail guys seem to get it in the neck. 35 % interest on credit cards and an unholy alliance with immigrations assures a healthy profit and jail time for anyone attempting to leave the country with debt.

You will take it and like it! (Apologies to Gunny Ermey!)


Many innocents are lured with fast and easy credit when first arriving here and get into a big bind. It is tempting with the apparent affluent lifestyle of fancy cars and designer shops.  People should pay their debts but should be able to do so from another country if they choose. That option is not available here.

But Solar Powered ATMs Are


I recently had problems with my bank, the National Bank of Abu Dhabi (NBAD). This firm sent out a notice a few months ago that they were upgrading their website and I would have to make some adjustments such as losing my templates I used to transfer money and pay bills. From my past experiences with the national telephone, internet and cable TV companies, I had a strong feeling this website upgrade was not going to end well. It didn't.

We Like You!!


Two days after the "upgrade" I tried to log on and got errors and denied access. I called the help desk and was assured the problem would be handled and I would be called back with the magic solution. No call back for 2 days. I called again and my password was reset....failure again. I made my 3rd call and was told I can't be helped because the technical center was now closed despite the on-hold recording proudly announcing online help was available 24/7. The same recording told me to press 4 for online support and after suffering through more minutes of raucous advertisements it told me to press 6 for the special online help desk. So I did.

Mind you, I have a lot of bills to pay back in the US and I have to refill that bucket every month ontime or suffer some very expensive consequences. That urgency was lost on my bank. I finally got the site working after another lengthy phone call only to find it takes many more levels of security, passwords, questions, token codes and I had to redo all my payment templates. Very clunky and not an improvement. I do not mind security, but this could have been made sleeker and more user friendly. I suspect I will cringe everytime I have to do online banking again. I just expect something else to go wrong.

This Big Building Didn't Just Spring Out Of The Ground By Itself


Overall, NBAD is not a bad bank but they screwed this up. Remember, the rules are different here and things are definitely tilted in the banks' favor. You will not win, ever. The vast majority of my friends and co-workers have horror stories about their dealings with UAE banks.

My recommendations:

DO NOT get a local credit card, even if it says Visa or Mastercard on it, the rules are different. Read the fine print. Keep cards and debt in your home country.

DO NOT buy a new car. Get a good used one, they are cheap and plentiful.

DO NOT go into any kind of debt here. The banks are ruthless and if things go tits-up for you, you could get prison time. Its the law. You will severely limit your "options".

DO NOT  keep more in your local UAE account than you need to live on month to month. Send the excess back home. The banks will take what is in your account on the slightest pretense such as a traffic violation. Geez, they even want ~$40USD to give you a clearance letter saying you do not owe them any money.

I am not picking on the UAE banks specifically, they just have their own rules that are bad for us consumers. The banking industry in the USA has caused far more damage to the global economy and hurt more people than a UAE bank could ever do. Shame on them and their greedy ways. They screwed up a good thing, may they rot in hell!

          Raios   
Existem vários tipos de raios, dentre eles citamos os com maiores destaques:
- Infravermelho: radiação eletromagnética invisível, emitida por corpos aquecidos. Pode ser por meio de células fotoelétricas, possui muitas aplicações. Desde o aquecimento de interiores até o tratamento de doenças de pele e de músculos. Para produzir o infravermelho, em geral empregam-se lâmpadas de vapor de mercúrio a de filamento longo incandescente. A radiação infravermelha é usada para obter fotos de objetos distantes estrelas e nebulosas que são invisíveis com luz normal. Uma outra utilidade deste tipo de radiação é o uso nas fotografias infravermelhas, que são muito precisas. O infravermelho foi muito utilizado na II Guerra Mundial.

-Ultravioleta: produzida por descargas elétricas em tubos de gás. Cerca de 5% de energia mandada pelo Sol consiste nesta radiação, mas a maior parte da que incide sobre a Terra é filtrada pelo O e pelo ozônio na atmosfera, estes protegem a vida na terra. Esta radiação é impregnada principalmente em tubos fluorescentes, mas também em aplicações médicas que incluem lâmpadas germicidas, o tratamento do Raquitismo e doenças de pele, enriquecimento de leite e ovos com vitamina D. É dividida em três classes: UV-A, UV-B E UV-C. As ondas de menor período são as mais nocivas aos organismos vivos. A UV-A é mais perigosa e tem período entre 4000A (ângstrons) e 3150A. UV-B tem período entre 3150A e 2800A e causa queimaduras na pele.

- Raios catódicos: são feixes de partículas produzidos por um eletrodo negativo (cátodo) de um tubo contendo gás comprimido. É resultado da ionização do gás e provocam luminosidade. Os raios catódicos são identificados no final do século passado por Willian Crookes. O tubo de raios catódicos é usado em osciloscópios e televisões.

- Raio X: são capazes se atravessar o corpo humano, durante a travessia, o feixe sofre certo enfraquecimento. Ele provoca a iluminação de certos sais minerais. O uso do raio X tem sido uma importante ferramenta de diagnóstico e terapia. Os raios X são absorvidos pelos ossos enquanto passam facilmente pelos outros tecidos. Em 1895 Wilhelm Konrad Von Röntgen descobre acidentalmente os raios X quando estudava válvulas de raios catódicos. Verificou que algo acontecia fora da válvula e fazia brilhar no escuro foco fluorescente. Eram raios capazes de impressionar chapas fotográficas através de papel preto. Produziam fotografias que revelavam moedas nos bolsos e os ossos das mãos. Estes raios desconhecidos são chamados simplesmente de “X”.

a. Malefícios e Benefícios

Ser atingido por radiação é algo sutil e impossível de ser percebido imediatamente, já que no momento do impacto não ocorre dor ou lesão visível. Bem diferente de ser atingido por uma bala de revólver, por exemplo, cujo efeito destrutivo é sentido e constatado na hora. A radiação ataca as células do corpo individualmente, fazendo com que os átomos que compõem as células sofram alterações em sua estrutura. As ligações químicas podem ser alteradas, afetando o funcionamento das células. Isso, por sua vez, provoca com o tempo consequências biológicas no funcionamento do organismo como um todo. Algumas consequências podem ser percebidas a curto prazo, outras a longo prazo. Às vezes vão apresentar problemas somente os descendentes (filhos e netos) da pessoa que sofreu alguma alteração genética induzida pela radioatividade.
O efeito biológico da radiação está relacionado com a propriedade de provocar ionização da matéria com a qual interage, isto é, com sua capacidade de arrancar elétrons da matéria, criando íons. A propriedade de provocar ionização, como já visto, é diferente para três tipos de radiação, com a seguinte ordem decrescente: alfa > beta > gama. Além disto, a natureza do tecido vivo que absorve a radiação também influi no efeito biológico observado. Quando expostos a mesma dose de radiação, o tecido ósseo absorve aproximadamente o dobro de energia absorvida por tecidos não ósseos.
Radiações de diferentes naturezas têm capacidades diferentes de lesar o mesmo tipo de matéria viva. A exposição de um ser humano a uma alta dose de radiação pode dar origem a inúmeros efeitos imediatos. A radioatividade está presente no nosso cotidiano de diversas maneiras. Na superfície terrestre pode ser detectada energia proveniente de raios cósmicos e da radiação solar ultravioleta; nas rochas, encontramos elementos radioativos, como o urânio-238, urânio-235, tório-232, rádio-226 e rádio-228; até mesmo em vegetais pode ser detectada a radioatividade: as batatas, por exemplo, contêm potássio-40. As plantas, o carbono-14; no nosso sangue e ossos encontram-se potássio-40, carbono-14 e rádio-226. Mas essa exposição pode ser por meio de materiais eletroeletrônicos (microondas, copiadoras), onde por efeitos elétricos o ar atmosférico e gases são ionizados pelas radiações tornando-se condutores de eletricidade, por exposição a materiais radioativos mal descartados, entre outros. Alguns efeitos à exposição aparecem abaixo:
- alteração do material genético das células reprodutivas (espermatozóide e óvulo), podendo causar doenças hereditárias nos filhos que indivíduo possa vir a gerar;
- em contato com o cérebro podem causar delírio, convulsões e morte;
- em contato com os olhos podem provocar catarata;
- em contato com a boca pode ocasionar úlceras bucais;
- em contato com o estômago e intestino provocam náuseas e vômitos, até infecções intestinais podendo levar à morte;
- danos à criança em gestação podem incluir retardo mental, particularmente se a exposição à radiação ocorrer no início da gravidez;
- em contato com a medula óssea podem conduzir a hemorragia ou comprometer o sistema imunológico;
- em contato com os vasos sangüíneos pode ocorrer ruptura dos mesmos levando à formação de hematomas.
- bomba atômica, entre outro.

A radioatividade, quando utilizada de forma controlada, pode trazer muitos benefícios para o homem. Hoje em dia ela é utilizada sob três formas básicas: uso da energia do núcleo do átomo, das radiações que têm a capacidade de atravessar a matéria e velar filmes, uso da capacidade em radioterapia ou esterilização de material médico, dentre outras utilizações citadas a seguir:
- aplicações em Geologia e arqueologia: determina a idade de rochas, fósseis, principalmente pelo C – 14;
- geração de energia elétrica através das usinas;
- estudo do método balístico;
- controle de qualidade;
- diagnóstico de doenças como câncer da tireóide, tumores dos olhos e câncer de pele, tumores cerebrais, obstrução do sistema circulatório;
- usada na medicina, radiologia, que estuda como se faz e interpreta a radiografia. As radiografias não afetam a saúde da pessoa irradiada devido ao curto espaço de tempo em que a pessoa é exposta à radiação e também que este não constitui um ato rotineiro. Mesmo assim, mulheres no primeiro trimestre de gravidez devem evitar a exposição de raio X.;
- outro uso na medicina nuclear que visa o diagnóstico, onde substâncias radioativas são injetadas pela veia do paciente, e, tempo depois este é colocado sob equipamentos que medem a radioatividade da droga injetada e que foi absorvida por certos órgãos do corpo. Assim é possível fazer um mapeamento de órgãos, dependendo do tipo de material injetado.;
- também existe a radioterapia que é destinada principalmente ao controle do câncer, uma vez que a radiação penetre no corpo e atinge tumores malignos, nela o paciente fica exposto mais tempo à radiação e uma alta dose é dirigida à região a ser tratada. A radioterapia tem como principal objetivo a agressão de tecidos do corpo humano, no caso os tumores.;
- na área industrial, utiliza-se a radiação para radiografar peças mecânicas, e com isso fazer um diagnostico de um defeito ou uma peça quebrada no interior de um equipamento;
- na indústria alimentícia utilizam-se radiações de alta energia, evitando que frutas se estraguem mais rapidamente ou brotem ramificações, e assim possam ser armazenadas por maiores períodos de tempo.
- a radiação, por atacar microorganismos, também é utilizada na este realização de materiais, entre outros.
          Having A Swimming Pool   
Having a swimming pool in a residential area is a good idea to let one relax and indulge in some outdoor sports activity. Swimming pool is a man made water body. Water is enclosed by walls and restricted by a basement. An exotic swimming pool also adds to one’s class and showcases his aesthetic sense. [...] Related posts:

GANS DEFEATS STANTON ABBOT.

FAST BOXING AT THE ACADEMY CONCERT HALL.

In the Third Round the Colored Boy Dazed the Englishman by a Left Hook, Followed by a Right Swing, Both on the Jaw--Three Other Bouts Under the Auspices of the Eureka Athletic Club--"The Adonis of the Ring" Stopped Wrenn, and Sweigert Was Bested by Joe Elliott--Two Featherweights Made a Fast Pace.
--------
Joe Gans, colored, of this city, last night practically knocked out Stanton Abbot, the famous English lightweight boxer, who is now engaged in teaching the manly art to the swell residents of Newport. The contest took place before a crowded house at the Concert Hall of the Academy. Gans outpointed and outclassed his opponent. He broke at will over his defense, succeeding himself in escaping the unaggressive short-arm jabs aimed by Abbot. In the third round Gans reached over Abbot's guard for a left hook on the jaw, following it with a lightning stroke with the right on the opposite jaw, and Abbot went down dazed. He managed to get up just as the referee was counting the last of the ten. From then until the middle of the fifth round Abbot gave an illustration of the bulldog tenacity and pluck of his country, simply acting as a butt for the quick charges of his dusky opponent. The contest was thus going on in a way perfectly hopeless for Abbot when, in the middle of the fifth round, his seconds threw up the sponge. Abbot was dazed, while Gans was as fresh as when he had started. The colored boy practically was not punished at all. He was in great form, while Abbot was soft and totally unable to withstand the nerve pace. The men boxed in open, clean order, breaking always nicely, making the "go" on its merits, very much to the gratification of the audience.

Gans' victory was as complete as notable. Abbot has a great reputation over this country and England as a boxer. He has, locally, defeated such men as Gehring and Duke. Gans was always the aggressor. He started from the take-off to make the pace hot. Being able to get away from return punishment at will, he constantly made sorties on his antagonist, getting around his guard, and repeatedly landing lefts on face and right-swings on body.

The contest was given under the auspices of the Eureka Athletic Club. There were four set-tos in all, for which no decisions were given publicly by Referee Mantz, though privately he expressed opinions. Excellent order prevailed throughout, and, apparently, none of the men taking part were injured.

Johnnie Smith and "Kid" Byrnes, both of this city, rival aspirants for 110-pound honors, made up the first bout. Both boys were full of steam, and put up a contest quite to the liking of the crowd. At the start of the first round Byrnes started to make the going. He swung a hard right on Smith's neck, and was countered on the body. In the second round, Smith began to send fierce punches after Byrnes' short ribs, exploring for the famous solar plexus blow. Byrnes could only lead with his right, not being at all nimble with his left. Smith was out in a pair of baby blue trunks, kept in place by a pink sash. One of his first efforts was to give Byrnes a "brim lamp," which at the ringside means a damaged eye. Byrnes looked over his optical crapery in the best of humor, a fresh smile coming with each blow. Smith had previously gotten the wrong end of a padded mill argument with Byrnes, and he was dead in earnest to even up. The two labored away energetically for their six rounds. The crowd adjudged it a draw.

Frank Farley, the Adonis of the ring, then had a five-round affair with Joe Wrenn, of Hazelton, Pa. "The Adonis" is handsome, and he's handy with his pins as Jimmy Fadden would say. He polished off Wrenn's nose with a double coat of claret, and then literally ran him off his legs. Not having legs, Wrenn failed to stand gracefully in the ring by the end of the fifth round, and Manager Herford suggested that the thing be stopped. Herford's suggestions go at the Eureka Club, and the thing was stopped, Farley getting the blue ribbon.

Fred Sweigert, "The Trial Horse," reminiscent of Fred Stewart and the Monumental Amphitheater, came out for a four-round friendly "go" with Joe Elliott, who himself is something of a trial horse. The two men had a rough way of showing their friendship. Elliott worked his left on Sweigert's nose and mouth, varying it occasionally with a heave with his right. He tired Sweigert out, and won a decision in a way to the taste of those present.

Before the real business of the evening started there was a bag-punching contest, for which three medals were given. These were won by Frank Farley, Joe Gans and William Anty.

Big Attendance at the Boxing Carnival in the Academy of Music Hall--Farley Gets the Medal.

The boxing contests at the Academy of Music Hall last night were well attended. The house was packed, in fact, and Manager Herford feels much encouraged as to the outlook for such events in the future. The first thing on the card was a punching-bag contest. The entries were William Auty, Charles Steinbach, James King, Herman Holstein, Jim Janey, Joe Gans and Frank Farley. All of the men showed up well, but the judges had no difficulty in placing Farley first, and he was awarded the gold medal. Joe Gans was second and William Auty third. Auty was probably the most scientific of all, but the bag was too high for him, and he could not do himself justice.

The first of the boxing contests was between Tommy Burns and Johnny Smith, and was scheduled for six rounds. The boys put up a pretty fight, and at the end of the six rounds it was a stand off. Burns is a new-comer to the ring and hardly understands as much about the game as Smith, but he is a likely strong lad with a dangerous right, and will make a clever boxer with more experience.

Frank Farley and Joe Wrenn, of Hazleton, Pa., were next put on. Wrenn is a stout, husky boy but lacks skill, and Farley outpointed him all the way. The "Adonis" was not in the best of shape himself, owing to recent illness, but he made the Hazleton boy look very cheap. In the fourth round Wrenn began to get weak on his legs and in the fifth he was so groggy that he was taken off.

Jim Janey had been advertised to box with Tobe Parker, of Washington. Parker had signed an agreement to be on hand and Manager Herford had sent him on his railroad ticket. Parker, however, did not show up, and the bout was declared off. To fill in, Joe Elliott and Fred Sweigert went on for four rounds. Joe had all the best of it and fought Sweigert to a standstill. This, however, was not much to Sweigert's discredit, for he was in no shape for a fight, and simply went on to oblige Manager Herford. He made a very game and creditable showing under the circumstances. The star bout of the evening between Stanton Abbott and Joe Gans was then in order. It was Gans' battle all the way through.

Abbott, with his wonderful guard, stood Joe off for a couple of rounds, but in the third the colored lad got into the Englishman, and, punching him right and left, finally sent him to the floor. The referee counted 10, and at the last second Abbott staggered to his feet. He was a beaten man ten, but he managed to hang on until the gong saved him. The next round he recuperated wonderfully and did some leading himself, but he was clearly weak and all but out of it. In the fifth Joe went at his man, and, hitting him at will, finally dropped him with a right-hand punch on the jaw. Abbott's seconds saw that it was all over and threw up the sponge. Abbott was not in the best of condition. He looked fat and soft, and after the second round he was slow as an ice-wagon. He clearly has no business with Gans, and, indeed, none but strictly first-class men can hope to make a showing with the colored lad. Abbott took his defeat very philosophically. He said: "I have been 16 years in the ring, and I must expect to find my superior among these youngsters."

Takes Less Than Five Rounds To Do It--Other Bouts Of The Eureka And Bag Punching.

Joseph Gans, the colored lightweight of Baltimore, again proved his great ability as a pugilist by defeating easily Staunton Abbott, the Englishman, in less than five rounds last night.

The colored boy came within an ace of finishing Abbott in the third with a blow on the jaw that almost put him out. Staunton staggered to his feet, however, just as the referee counted "9" and the gong saved him. He recovered somewhat and gamely tried to continue the contest. But in the fifth round, after Gans had made a chopping block of him, Abbott's second threw up the sponge, after a knockdown by Gans. Abbott was not "out," but he was helpless, and his seconds gave up to save him from further punishment and the knockout that would have come shortly. Abbott made a very game fight, but Gans outpointed him from the start. It was evident that he was no match for the colored boy, who escaped everything like a serious blow.

The Gans-Abbott battle was the last and principal one at the boxing exhibition given in the concert hall of the Academy of Music, under the auspices of the Eureka Athletic Club, of which Al. Herford is manager. The exhibition was an excellent one and the crowd filled nearly every seat. There was a six-round set-to between Thomas (Kid) Byrnes and John Smith, both of Baltimore, at 110 pounds, which was a draw; another between Frank Farley and Joseph Wren, both of Philadelphia, five rounds at 124 pounds, which was all Farley's and a four-round "go" between Joseph Elliott and Fred. Sweigert at catch weights, in which Elliott pummelled his opponent almost at will. The last was arranged after the exhibition began, to take the place of a bout that had been arranged between Tobe Parker, of Washington, and James Janey, of Baltimore. Parker, although a railroad ticket had been sent him, failed to appear.

No decisions were given by the referee in any of the events, the spectators being left to decide for themselves. George Mantz was referee and Ernault Gebhart was timekeeper.

Besides the boxing contests, Manager Herford introduced a novelty to open the entertainment with in the shape of a bag-punching contest, for the championship of Maryland and prizes. A number of contestants entered and Frank Farley, the "Adonis," as he is called, because of his handsome face and figure, gave a wonderfully skillful exhibition of bag punching and was awarded the first prize, a large gold medal, and the championship. Joseph Gans, whose punching was only a little less fine, won the second prize, a punching bag. William Anty, a Baltimore boy, was adjudged entitled to third honor. Every contestant was given three minutes. Messrs. Walter Schlichter, sporting editor of a well-known Philadelphia paper, J. H. Anderson and William Walts, of Baltimore, were the judges.

The Gans-Abbott bout opened with both men sparring for an opening. After a few moments Gans landed the first blow of any consequence, a straight left jab in the face. Shortly afterward he got in another, following it with a right hook in the ribs. Abbott landed a light left on Gans' neck and the round closed, with neither man hurt, Gans having had the better of it, however. The colored boy began working in earnest in the second round and had all the better of it, landing half a dozen or more stiff punches on the face and ribs of his opponent. Abbott's face was scarlet and his body blood red from the blows as he went to his corner.

Gans was still more savage in the third round. He continued his hard jabs in Abbott's face and ribs and near the close had Abbott all but out. With a terrible straight left jab in the face Gans jolted his opponent's head back and then sent in a right hook on the jaw. Abbott went down and it looked as if it was all over. But after lying perfectly still on his back until the referee had counted up to six, the plucky little Englishman arose to his feet as "nine" was called and managed to defend himself until the song sounded.

The last two rounds simply tested the endurance and dogged bravery of Abbott. Gans hammered him almost at will, but Abbott managed to evade a knockout. When, however, Gans floored him after 2 minutes and 15 seconds of the fifth round, his seconds threw up the sponge. Abbott tried hard to land his famous right, but Gans was far too clever.

The other bouts were no less animated than the star affair. Byrnes and Smith had a savage time of it for a while and "mixed it up" in lively fashion. Byrnes did nearly all the fighting, forcing matters from the start. He had the better of it, but Smith recovered, and toward the close evened up matters considerably.

The Farley-Wren contest was all one-sided. Wren was the heavier and stronger, but was not in good condition, and Farley was the cleverer. At the end of the fifth Wren was tired out, and the bout was stopped. Wren was not hurt.

In the other preliminary, Joe Elliott, as usual, proved himself a very clever boxer, and Fred. Sweigert proved, as usual, that he could take any amount of punishment smilingly. At the end Sweigert, breathlessly, apologized to the crowd for not doing better work, saying he was not in condition.

MARTIN BLAMED IT ON BAD EYES.

HOW JOE GANS MET ANOTHER OF THE EASY VICTIMS.
--------
Flaherty Was a Mark for the Colored Man, and Lost the Battle at Ford's in the Fourth Round, When Seconds Threw Up the Sponge--Defeated Man Had Reputation Made in Battles With Erne, McFadden and Sullivan, but Was Outclassed by Dusky Lad--Diversion Caused by the Arrest of a Woman, Who Wanted So Badly to See Contest that She Dressed in Man's Clothes.
--------
Another victim was brought up for Joe Gans, at Ford's Theater, last night, in the person of Martin Flaherty, of Lowell, Mass. Toward the ending of the fourth round after Gans had twice floored Flaherty in that round, Colonel Michael Haley threw up the sponge and the fight was Gans', while the great American people stood up on their opera chairs and yelled "Fake" and clamored for their money back. Colonel Haley, once a lightweight pugilist, and now looking like nothing more than a well-fed burgomaster, declares that Flaherty is next thing to a blind man, and as the Colonel assumed an air of injured innocence, and Flaherty blinked owl-like, with eyes partly closed, it is probably true, but that didn't satisfy the great crowd that filled every part of the theater for no other purpose than to see a slashing contest.

Colonel Haley says that what Flaherty needs is some of Colonel Mulberry Sellers' eye-water, and not the fierce jabs dealt out by Gans. Whatever the cause, the fact is that Flaherty was no more a match for Gans than was the lamented Whitey Lester. Flaherty knew that he was in for a good, hard beating dealt out in rag time, but he butted along with the plain desire to lose the fight in the first or second round on a foul. This is exactly what would have occurred but for the philanthropic thoughtfulness of Referee Mantz, who labored long and faithfully to give the people their money's worth. There was hardly a time that Flaherty did not fight foul.

He Hit in Clinches.

It was his game to hit in clinches, in plain violation of the rules. Totally unable to judge distance, Flaherty was perfectly helpless at long-range fighting, and his only hope was to work overtime in the clinches, trusting to pummel some of the steam out of Gans, or else to lose the fight on a foul and take the loser's end of the purse to his thrifty New England home.

So strongly was Flaherty inclined to fighting in the clinches that in the very first round there was afforded the diverting spectacle of a gold-laced police captain reaching over the rope and taking a strangle hold on Flaherty, nipping him into submission. Captain Cadwallader was the hero of this bit of police strenuousness and his method was more effective than that of Mantz, as Flaherty had a deep respect for the majesty of a law represented by an official ready to take a hand in the game himself. The only part of the game at which Flaherty was good was at blocking. He was a dead one at assault work; and, even if the truth, that should control all chroniclers, will not unreservedly admit that it was the fault of bad eyes. It is an excuse as good as any other. Although Flaherty could occasionally ward off the whip-like blows that Gans shot out, the Lowell man was plainly in for a good, hard drubbing. It took but one round for Gans to show to the front. In the first round, after the usual fiddling, they exchanged light rights and lefts and clinched. Flaherty started his fouling and infighting right then. Joe returned some of the short-arm blows, and Mantz had his troubles breaking them.

Martin led a left, but it was an abortive attempt, as it fell short, and Gans easily blocked it.

Gans' Head in Chancery.

They clashed again and clinched, and Flaherty managed to get Gans' head in chancery and began belaboring him, while Mantz made a center rush on the struggling men and tried by voice and muscle to break them apart. Flaherty was bent on doing all the execution he could in the clinch, and kept at it until Captain Cadwallader reached over the ropes, seized Flaherty by the chin and head, and, getting a strangle hold, took all the steam and breath out of him. There were lots of warnings to Flaherty, but it availed not. In the second round Flaherty blocked rights and lefts, and they exchanged body blows with little effect. Gans sent in a slashing right upper cut as Flaherty started to bore in, and in a clinch the pair fell with Gans on top. Flaherty clinched, fought foul and refused to break. After working like an army mule, Mantz tore them apart and sent Flaherty to his corner just as the gong sounded for the ending of the round. Mantz again warned Flaherty about fouling.

At the opening of the third round Gans scored a hard right hook on Flaherty's jaw and dazed him. Joe sent a straight left to eye and swung to head. Flaherty blocked a right and left, and scored lightly on Joe's wind.

The fourth round was the finish. Flaherty led two lefts for body that fell short. Gans feinted with right and floored Flaherty with a left to neck that knocked Flaherty flat. After some sparring Gans waded in, and, with a right to jaw, knocked down Flaherty and dazed him. This is when Col. Haley threw up the sponge and began his explanations about Flaherty's bad eyesight.

A Woman in Disguise.

The scenes that followed the close of the fight were diverting. During the process of the contest Captain Cadwallader spotted a woman dressed in man's clothes in the audience. After the show Cadwallader shouldered his way through the crowd, trying to overtake the woman. She saw his game and struck out at a lively gait down Fayette street to Eutaw, and headed for a well-known restaurant on the latter street. Just as she reached the door the police officer reached her. At his heels were over a thousand excited men, and the scene was lively as the officer marched his unique captive out Baltimore street to Greene, where he called the patrol.

As the crowd had reached huge proportions, Captain Cadwallader marched his fair captive to Pearl street, where he met the patrol. At the station the gay masquerader gave the name of Elizabeth Moore, aged 24 years, of Buffalo, N. Y. She was dressed in dark trousers, with sack coat, fancy vest, low collar, red necktie and white alpine hat. Se is a handsome brunette, and wore gold eyeglasses. Her glossy tresses were tucked under a wig of black curly hair. Her husband put in an appearance, and, at a late hour last night, started out to hunt up his wife's feminine attire and $101.25, the collateral necessary to produce to escape a night in the station on the charge of disorderly conduct.

Wanted to See the Fight.

"I wanted to see the fight awfully bad," said the fair prisoner to the police officials, "and the only way that I could get in was to dress like a man. My husband secured these clothes from a man friend, and helped to rig me out. I am awfully sorry to get into this scrape, and I should never have ventured into such a place had I thought there was any chance of discovery."

And the pretty "man" looked down at her grotesquely large patent-leather shoes, and seemed more anxious to cry than to see any more pugilistic contests.

Flaherty's Good Record.

Martin Flaherty's record looked so good that he should have done better. He has to his credit a decision over Frank Erne, a 20-round draw with George McFadden, and a creditable fight with Spike Sullivan. After the bout last night he blinked most dolefully, and declared that he had been hit on the eyes so much in the past three years that he can see nothing. The theater was packed, and the crowd was sadly disappointed at the outcome, as they wanted a clean, hard and a long battle. While the outcome last night was in no way framed up by the promoters, it is, nevertheless, unfortunate, as the vast crowd last night demonstrated the popularity of boxing among good men.

Several Lively Preliminaries.

Before the principal contest five preliminary bouts were run off, in which boys of the nonprofessional rank were the opponents. All of the bouts were for three rounds, and three of them created much laughter among the audience. John Eich and George Whitman were the first two to go on. Not the least bit of science was shown by either, and both swung wildly. At the end of the third round very little damage was done, and the decision was announced a draw.

The second bout was between James Farren, the 105-pound Baltimore featherweight, and Chris Butt. They were both well matched in their weight, but Farren displayed more science, and before the opening round was ended Farren delivered a left punch to Butt's abdomen which caused Butt to go to the floor, and was counted out. Farren was just as fresh as when he started, and stayed in the ring and then boxed Buck Washington, colored, the "Old Trial Horse of the Monumental Amphitheater," who could not get anyone to don the mitts with him. Washington looked to be 15 pounds heavier than Farren, but Farren showed great cleverness and landed some telling blows. Both were there at the end, and the referee announced it a draw, but Farren, from a spectator's point of view, had the better of the bout.

George Kunnicker and Sammy Harris, colored, were the next two to go on. These did not show any science whatever, but hammered each other over the ring. The referee had a difficult task in separating them. No damage was done by either, and the bout ended with a draw.

Fred Hill, of Canton, and Doc Tanner wound up the preliminaries. After going two slow rounds the referee disqualified them. Harry Lyons, Herford's featherweight, refereed the first two bouts and received an ovation.

GANS MADE SHORT WORK OF MARTIN FLAHERTY
--------
The Lowell Boxer Was Knocked Out in the Fourth--Rough Tactics Marked the First Two Rounds--A Woman in Man's Attire Saw the Battle
--------
The Gans-Flaherty battle attracted a big crowd to Ford's Opera House last night. The theater was packed from pit to dome, and standing room even was at a premium. The bout was scheduled to go 20 rounds, but it came to a sudden termination in the fourth round, when Flaherty's seconds threw up the sponge, after their man had been knocked down and virtually out.

Flaherty was distinctly a disappointment. He has the reputation of being a hard, rough fighter, and the crowd last night expected to see him make a lively battle. He was never in it, however. He was rough enough, to be sure, and in the first two rounds resorted to foul tactics, refusing to break and hitting in the clinches to such an extent that the police were compelled to interfere. As far as fighting went, however, the Lowell man was completely outclassed. When Gans started in to do business he pounded Flaherty right and left at will, and soon had him wobbling.

The first two rounds were marked by clinches and foul tactics on the part of Flaherty. In the third round Gans went after the Lowell man and staggered him with a terrific right on the jaw. This took all the steam out of Flaherty, and was the beginning of the end.

In the fourth Gans started right in to do business and sent Flaherty to the floor with a right on the jaw. The Lowell man was quickly on his feet, but was met with another right, which sent him down for good. Flaherty was staggering to his feet when his seconds threw up the sponge.

There were some cries of "fake" on the part of the crowd, but they were entirely uncalled for. While Flaherty was not entirely out he was virtually so, and it was an act of wisdom and mercy on the part of his seconds to give up the battle. The defeated man was so dazed that he had to be led off the stage, and it was some time after he had reached his dressing room before he could see clearly.

Flaherty claimed that his eyesight was affected and that he could not see well under the glare of the electric lights. It is quite probable, however, that Gans' righthand smashes had something to do with the failure of eyesight.

Gans' seconds were Al Herford, Cobb Bond, Herman Miller and Harry Lyons. In Flaherty's corner were Col. Mike Haley, Joe Elliott, "Scotty" McTavish and Dan Leahy. George Mantz was the referee.

Preliminary to the main bout there were some lively settos of three rounds each between local talent. John Eich and George Whitman had a lively go with no decision, as they were amateurs. Jimmy Farren put Chris Button out in the first round with a solar plexus blow, and then boxed two rounds to a draw with Buck Washington. George Kunnecke and Sam Harris fought a draw. Doc Tanner and Fred Hill boxed two rounds, but were stopped by Manager Herford on the ground that there was "nothing doing."

A Woman at the Show

There was an amusing sideshow connected with the fight which for a while attracted almost as much attention as the main event itself. Mrs. Elizabeth Moore somehow conceived the notion that she would like to see the fight, and she did see it, although at the expense of considerable notoriety.

Dressed in the latest approved men's habiliments, Mrs. Moore, accompanied by her husband, entered the opera house last night and took seats in the orchestra, about six rows from the front. The pair was immediately noticed, and the immediate audience "rubbered" in amazement at the woman's attire, which, to say the least, was inartistic. An enormous wig barely concealed her natural growth of hair and she carried herself with an air decidedly non-masculine.

The attention of Captain Cadwallader was called to the woman, but he decided to wait until the close of the performance before interfering. In the meantime the woman enjoyed the fight immensely and cheered the gladiators on. She afterward said that she had never seen a fight before and had never enjoyed herself more in her life.

At the conclusion of the contest Captain Cadwallader rushed out of the back entrance to the theater in an endeavor to head the woman off, but the pair made good their escape and entered a restaurant on Eutaw street, near Baltimore. They were followed down the street by a crowd which grew greater each moment. When the captain arrived the entire street was blocked. He pushed his way into the place and some moments later emerged with the woman. Meanwhile the crowd had grown enormous and it took the mightiest efforts of six officers to force a way to the nearest patrol box.

All along the streets the wagon was followed by the noisy mass, which threatened to break down the station doors. The husband procured a hack and departed in search of proper wearing apparel for the woman, who was placed in charge of the matron. She said that her home was in Buffalo, N. Y., and that she had been stopping on Calvert street, near Read, for the past six weeks. The charge of masquerading in male attire was laid against her. She was afterward carried away in triumph by her husband, properly clothed and in a happy frame of mind. He deposited the sum of $101.45 for her appearance this morning.

          Oh So Pinteresting Wednesday   
It's Wednesday? I had a hard time remembering that all day today.
guess it's time for a little pinterest fun. What have you been pinning this week?
Raise your hand if you don't do Pinterest yet?
So here are my favorites for the week.
I'm totally doing this sometime this summer. Pretty much 1000% sure it'll be plenty hot enough in Kansas for the s'mores to be ready in about five minutes.
I love this. Really hope to do it. Anyone have any terracotta pots they are not using?
I pinned my own recipe. I rock. It was the post or two prior to this one.
This is a cute gift. My birthday is May 9th. Please collaborate so you don't all get me the same magazine. And you can change the sunscreen for Diet Dr Pepper. Just sayin'. lol.
I am SOOOO going to do this in my beach-themed 1/2 bath. I love my 1/2 bath, it is a happy place. I know, totally weird that the poop-room is a happy place, but heck it is!
Linking up at The Vintage Apple! Pop over there and see what other peeps are pinning!

          Excel · lents còctels amb ginebra per a l'estiu   

L'estiu és una època amb molta calor, però també és una època de l'any on cal relaxar-se, prendre alguna cosa refrescant i gaudir dels raigs del sol (sempre amb protector solar). Per això, i seguint una mica la nostra tast de ginebres del passat dijous 27 de juny, et presentem 2 begudes refrescants que ens faran passar l'estiu més amè:

Tom Collins

És un còctel a base de ginebra, soda i suc de llimona que va ser escrita per primera vegada per un bartender en 1876 anomenat Jerry Thomas. La història explica que es diu Tom Collins perquè les persones que promocionaven als bars de la ciutat, anaven pels carrers preguntant a la gent si coneixien Tom Collins. Davant les reaccions negatives de la gent, aquests senyors els deien que podien trobar al bar americà més proper.

Ingredients:

- Cubs de gel
- 2 oz de ginebra
- 2 oz de suc de llimona
- 1 culleradeta de sucre
- Soda
- 1 llesca de llimona (per decorar)
- 1 cirera (per decorar)

Preparació:

Es barreja la ginebra, el suc de llimona, el sucre i el gel en un mesclador o coctelera. Després s'aboca tot barrejat (fins als gels) en un got alt, omplir amb soda i adornar amb la llesca de llimona i la cirera. Es pot prendre directament des del got o amb una palleta.

Aquí els deixem un vídeo de Liquor.com (àudio en anglès)



Gimlet

El Gimlet és una beguda simple a base de ginebra o vodka i suc de llima endolcit. El suc de llima endolcit és fet amb una porció de suc de llima acabat d'esprémer, una porció d'aigua i una porció de sucre (la mida de la porció és al gust). Als Estats Units i el Regne Unit es fa una variació d'aquesta beguda, substituint el suc de llima endolcit amb un producte comercialitzat en aquests països anomenada "Rose s Lime Juice".

Ingredients:

- Cubs de gel.
- 2 oz de ginebra.
- 1 3/4 oz de suc de llima endolcit.
- 1 llesca de llima (per decorar)

Preparació:

Es barreja el gel, amb la ginebra i el suc de llima endolcit en un mesclador o coctelera. Es filtra el contingut en un vas de còctel i s'orna amb la llesca de llima.

Solo Trek to Gorak Shep

Note to Readers: I was able to repair the punctured air mattress. Also, my Palm Tree mascot has been joined by an inflatable kangaroo marking the tent of our Australian team member. 

***You can follow daily updates called in by satellite phone at this link  http://www.mountainguides.com/everest-south13.shtml
In these rather basic posts they will refer to my group as "Classic Climbers" Guided by Max and Aaron. I am only able to post when the team has returned to EBC after a rotation. 

This was suppose to be the day we put boots to ground for the first time on Everest. The plan was to rise at 3 a.m. and enter the ice fall, climb about three quarters of the way through it to an area called “The Football Field”, and return to base. Like everything we have done thus far, this too was intended to acclimate us for higher camps to come. But snow fell heavy through the night and “Big Boss” Greg Venovage judged the ice fall unsafe. “Hey Dave,” he called from outside my tent around 2:30 a.m., “I’m calling off the climb for today so get some sleep.” Then he shook my tent to relieve the heavy accumulation of snow and commented “Nice palm tree.” 

This is climbing Everest. As essential as it is to have a plan, it is still more important that one be willing to change it. After breakfast I checked out a radio from the Comm tent and set out on the four mile trek down the valley to Gorak Shep. I wanted to post to this blog, check my email, and connect with friends and family on Facebook. I find it helps me keep my spirits up when I read the comments blog Readers' posts, or friends add to my Facebook wall. Thank you! 

I skipped around Trekkers bound in heavy layers and moving in slow motion. That was me the first time I trekked into EBC, but I have since time acclimated. It felt good to clip along comfortably with Chicago playing in my ears, watching the rugged landscape of glacial moraine fold over on itself as a river emerged.

Into the Ice Fall

We finished breakfast at 3:30 a.m. and began shuffling over to the Sherpa group tent. I was once again the last climber to arrive. Mingma looked a bit concerned but did not ask me to explain my chronic tardiness. This was fortunate as I had no good excuse aside from the general malaise that comes with being up and active at such an hour. Under Mingma’s lead we immediately began passing other Climbers, sometimes leap-frogging four at a time. I would have asked him to slow down, except this pace solved a different problem I had. I had only dressed in Long Johns and a shell layer in anticipation of the hard work ahead and presently felt quite chilled. Soon I was generating enough body heat to feel comfortable as we navigated the blue ice statues that stand sentry to the fall. 

By far, the majority of fatalities on Everest occur in the ice fall. There are two reasons for this. The first is the fact that the ice fall consists of the pieces of ice broken off the upper glacier. These pieces, ranging in size from mailbox to commercial building, are all melting, shifting, and toppling in slow motion as gravity and spring temperatures work upon them. Occasionally that movement is not be in slow motion. The second reason the ice fall is susceptible to tragedy is the somewhat regular snow and ice avalanches that sweep down from the west shoulder of Everest. It goes without saying some parts of the ice fall are more dangerous than others. So a big part of managing one’s passage involves keeping enough gas in the tank to speed through those troublesome areas. 

Myself descending a ladder in the ice fall. 

At times Mingma would invite me to lead our ascent, offering counsel when we entered areas where speed was important. At some point I noticed we were alone. I called for a break at a safe spot and asked MIngma what he had heard over the radio as other Sherpa and IMG personnel chattered. He said Big Boss had just turned everyone around.  Mingma and I had already crossed most of the ladders and were only 10 minutes from our objective, the Football Field. He got on the radio and received permission for us to finish out. In the end, myself and two of the Air Force climbers were the only ones to make it to the Football Field. I felt good about this, but was also spent after four hours of hard climbing. We arrived back in EBC a bit after 9:00 a.m. I slept until lunch. 

Big Boss, Max, and one of our Climbers interrupted lunch to make an announcement. This Climber had decided to end his bid. The altitude was causing severe blurring of his vision and he felt it would not be safe to continue given this. He would be leaving EBC by helicopter in a few hours. The Climber was tearful as he talked about how hard it had been to make this decision and surrender his dream. We tried to console him.  A well liked team member, he will be missed by all.

Rest Day

Arrive Camp 1
SpO2 = 74  RHR = 77


From a distance, the ice fall looks like a jumbled pile of fractured ice. But up close, when you are inside the ice fall, it is a strange and wonderous world not unlike something Dr. Suess might have created. 

It starts with the blue ice statues of cold
They welcome you in like climbers of old. 
“He’s over-dressed. He’ll get hot, then get sweaty.”
“This will attract fatigue or a Yeti.”
The ground undulates like a Pirian Fong
The ice creaks and sings it’s happy ice song
You enter a narrow white corridor.
Now the ice is above, below, to the fore. 
But the shapes are not straight the way you had thought. 
They’re round and reaching, curved like a pot.
Your headlamp bends the shadows like skilm
or the haunting features in a Tim Burton film. 
The trail narrows until thats all that there is,
flanked by darkness and the demons of Miz.
Now you slide to the side in a crystalline room.
It dazzles and rings, but you must leave soon. 
Straight up through the ceiling with crampons and rope.
Up up to the next place. Wide open, you hope.
It’s hard to breathe. The air is so thin. 
You gasp like a gold fish on land, one fin.
The ice block above you could fall any time. 
So you can’t rest here. Keep moving. Must climb.
Next come the ladders, scratched and bent. 
They span the deep fissures, where others have went.
They scale the tall ice, three, four lashed together
like a whoozit flamboozle left out in the weather. 
You cross them with shoes made of steel-soled spikes. 
you hold onto the ropes, the rungs and the likes. 
Then six hours later you emerge from a crack. 
The sun has risen. You take off your pack. 
You’re here at last. You’ve arrived at Camp One. 
Now nap in your tent. Your work day is done.

Rest day Camp 1

Camp 1

We ate breakfast in our tents. The Sherpas brought us hot water for tea and to mix with our Oat Meal. Shortly thereafter we set out in light gear on the path to Camp 2. We had no intention of covering the entire  distance, but merely wished to keep our legs from stiffening up after the difficult prior day. 

Though the terrain was a pleasant rolling snow scape of little consequence, we never the less clipped our safety leashes into the running fixed lines. The soft contours of this windswept snow belie the many deep crevasses beneath. Indeed, the first casualty of this Everest season occurred on this very stretch. A Sherpa, part of the team setting fixed lines, fell 47 meters through a thin hidden snow bridge. 

We turned back at the halfway point, returning to camp just prior to a subzero wind storm setting in. We ate MRE’s while hiding in our thick down sleeping bags, then rested for the move to Camp 2 the following day.

Move to Camp 2 (Elev 21,300 feet)
SpO2 = 71  RHR = 98

Crossing a ladder

The white faces of Everest, Lhotse, and Nuptse from a perfect solar concentration down on the valley common to them all. It is a strict “no no” to get caught out in this valley during the hear of the day when temperatures can race from the morning cool of 10 F to 90 F at peak sun. So it goes we left Camp 1 at 6:00 a.m. in the tight chill of night and the soft dusky light of dawn. Ty and his Sherpa, Lakpa, together with Mingma and I, enjoyed a casual pace that delivered us to Camp 2, just as the first direct rays touched the tents.  We threw out things into a vacant tent, then adjorned to the dining tent for some hot Tang drink. 


Ty and I started talking about a wayward butterfly that had come into our tent the previous afternoon, taking refuge from the coming storm. Ty enlisted the counsel of the Sherpa tending the dining tent. “This is good luck,” the Sherpa asserted. Ty then added that the butterfly had sadly passed on during the night. The Sherpa looked uncomfortable, assuming we likewise wanted his interpretation of this turn. It must be understood that the Sherpa culture avoids conflict, bad tidings or any whiff of negativity. “Ummmm. Uhhhhhhh,” he stammered. “This is VERY good luck,” I offered, though it made no sense at all. “Yes,” the relieved Sherpa agreed, “this is very good luck.”

April 27, 2013
Rest Day at Camp 2
SpO2 = 76  RHR 86

Ty, loading his pack at camp 2
I am missing Lin and the boys. It has been several days since I have had cell service. I dream about them at night, pedestrian dreams where I am following them around the house. I will be back at EBC tomorrow as we finish this rotation and I plan to call them straight away. 

A big shout-out to my friends at The House. I have known some difficult moments during this rotation and found strength in your prayers. Many thanks and God bless. 

I break this climb down into two metrics; The game plan and my overall status. At this point we are still on game plan A, which is to say our summit day is likely around May 18th. Frankly, I consider this remarkable given the many variables at hand. Good on us! I also consider myself to be on my A game. This is a combination of physical, mental, and spiritual health. To be sure, there have been times I was not on my A game. But here, looking up the steep icy Lhotse face, I am grateful to feel this good. 
The Lohtse Face and approach
We will have to come to terms with the Lhotse Face on our next rotation. It is said this challenge separates many climbers from their dream. 

April 28, 2013
Camp 2 to EBC
At EBC SpO2 = 86   RHR = 83  
Oxygen bottles moved up to camp 2
Mingma stopped by my tent to the night before. He wanted to make sure I knew breakfast was at 4:30 a.m. and we were leaving right after. “Don’t be late,” he pleaded. I decided Mingma had done so much for me that I would make a concerted effort to satisfied this request. 

It was not just a matter of getting out of bed. All my gear had to be sorted for what would stay behind in a rice sack at camp 2 and what would return with me to EBC. I dedicated the next 2 hours (in 10 F temperatures) to this task. Some things were obvious; Down Suit, -40 F sleeping bag, and mattress pad would all stay. But when it came to a certain hat or candy bar I found myself flummoxed. It is entirely possible this was a symptom of the altitude. In most instances I ate the candy bar and left the hat behind, rationalizing that it had taken a lot of energy to get that hat up the hill and I owed it to myself to celebrate that success by not creating a counterfeit second effort. 
Team Leader Max Bunce and Mingma Chhing
I reported for breakfast very much on time. The Cook prepared fried egg and bacon on toast. It was quite tasty. Then Mingma and I set out into the predawn light at an improved pace. Not a lot of talking takes place during such a move. From time to time my concentration was summoned as we crossed another aluminum ladder laid out across a hungry crevasse, but otherwise I was free to be with my thoughts.  

My thoughts;
      -On the 1960’s sitcom Bewitched it was unfair of Darren to demand his wife not use her powers. She should have turned him into a newt.
      -I wonder what my son, Trevor, is doing right now?
      -The only track I can recall bass player of the Who, John Entwistle, singing lead on is My Wife.  This lyric indictment paints his wife as being a maniacal shrew for not understanding how he might have “had a bit too much to drink,” taken a wrong turn, and thus been AWOL the last four days. True or not, this could not have been good for his marriage.
       -What did I do with that last Mars bar?
       -When I get to EBC I will have concluded the second acclimation rotation. There will only be one more rotation before I am ready to make a summit attempt!
        -Mingma declined my invitation to make barnyard noises. Is it possible he is ashamed of his cow?
        -I can’t wait to shower and shave at EBC. It has been 9 days. 
        -I wonder how much weight I’ve lost.
        -My niece, Sasha, wrote a very nice message to me on Facebook. I already liked Sasha before this, but now I like her even more. I should either send a nice message back to her or ship a Mars bar from Gorak Shep. 


          Tema 8.punto 5   
5.- EL TIEMPO Y EL CLIMA
5.1.- El tiempo atmosférico y su estudio
    Llamamos tiempo atmosférico al estado de la atmósfera en un momento dado y en una zona determinada.
     Clima es el conjunto de fenómenos meteorológicos que caracterizan a una determinada región durante un largo periodo.

Los instrumentos meteorológicos y su utilización
         Miden el valor máximo y el valor mínimo de la temperatura durante un período considerado. El termómetro de Máxima tiene como elemento sensor el mercurio, mientras que el termómetro de Mínima contiene una solución de alcohol y glicerina en donde se haya inmerso un Índice que es el que registra la temperatura mas baja.

PLUVIÓMETRO
         Está compuesto por un recipiente colector y parte inferior, ambos de chapa de zinc, con jarro colector y probeta graduada de vidrio o acrílico transparente. El conjunto va montado en un mástil, el que a su vez debe estar situado en un área libre de obstáculos. La unidad de medida es el milímetro, que es equivalente a la altura que alcanzaría un litro de agua vertido en una superficie de 1 metro cuadrado
   

ANEMÓMETRO
         El Anemómetro es el instrumento que se utiliza para medir la dirección y la intensidad del viento, por lo tanto posee dos sensores, uno de ellos determina la dirección desde donde proviene el viento, conocido comúnmente como veleta, y el otro consiste en tres semi esferas construidas de un material muy liviano y que al girar permiten obtener la velocidad del viento.  La unidad en que se mide la velocidad del viento es el Nudo.

BARÓGRAFO
         El barógrafo es un instrumento de precisión que registra la presión atmosférica. Gracias a la escala ampliada de alta sensibilidad y a la precisa compensación de temperatura, se considera un microbarógrafo. Puede recoger perfectamente pequeñas variaciones de presión, ya que una variación de 1 mm de Hg corresponde en el diagrama a un recorrido de 2,5 mm. tiene un dispositivo de registro cronológico de la presión atmosférica. Se llama también barómetro registrador y las unidades son el milímetro de mercurio (mm Hg) o el milibar (mb).

       Higrómetro
         Un higrómetro es un instrumento que se usa para medir el grado de humedad del aire, del suelo, de las plantas o humedad, dando una indicación cualitativa de la humedad ambiental.


 Veleta
           Una veleta es un dispositivo giratorio que consta de una placa plana vertical que gira libremente, un señalador que indica la dirección del viento y una cruz horizontal que indica los puntos cardinales. Se ubica generalmente en lugares elevados y su diseño puede ser muy variado (figuras de animales, antropomorfas, etc). 

5.2.- El clima y los climogramas
El clima

Es lacondición característica de la atmósfera deducida de observaciones constantes de largos periodos (alrededor de 30 a 50 años). Con esto se puede decir que el clima representauna generalización  mientras el tiempo refleja una situación particular. 
 Elementos              

Las distintas condiciones físicas que caracterizan cada uno de los estados de laatmósfera (cálida, frío, húmedo) se  denominan   elementos climáticos, los cuales tienen la particularidad de variar en el tiempo y en el espacio debido a una serie de factores como el relieve, la altitud, la latitud, etc. Estos se denominan los factores del clima. De estemodo se puede decir que los elementos determinan, mientras que los factores lo modifican.
 Los elementos del clima: Son la presión atmosférica y vientos, temperaturas,precipitaciones y humedad.
La presión atmosférica
Corresponde al peso de las masas de aire que se encuentra por encima del nivel en que se efectúa la medición. La presión atmosférica está íntimamente relacionada con los movimientos de las masas de aire, específicamente los movimientos de vientos. La presión atmosférica contribuye también a distribuir la humedad y la temperatura en el planeta.La distribución de la presión origina centros de altas y bajas presiones; donde el aire se desplaza desde las regiones de altas presiones hacia las bajas presiones. Los centros de altas y bajas presiones están asociados a determinadas condiciones de tiempo. Así, un centro de altas presiones, por ser dispersor de vientos, se asocia con buen tiempo, mientras que un centro de bajas presiones se asocia a mal tiempo,nuboso o tormentoso.
La temperatura
 junto con las precipitaciones son los que tienen una mayor importancia, no sólo porque influyen en las distintas actividades del hombre, sinoporque son las variables que permiten caracterizar los diversos tipos climáticos.
Las precipitaciones
se refieren a la presencia de agua líquida o sólida en laatmósfera. Las formas que estas presentan son las siguientes: Nubes, niebla, lluvia,granizo, aguanieve y nieve. La lluvias según su origen, se clasifican en orográficas,convectivas y ciclónicas.
La humedad
en tanto es la cantidad de vapor de agua que se encuentra en laatmósfera.
Factores del clima:
Las variaciones y valores medios de los elementos del clima
dependen de una serie de factores, como la latitud y situación geográfica,altitud, relieve, proximidad del mar y corrientes marinas.

6.- LA CONTAMINACIÓN ATMOSFÉRICA

         La contaminación atmosférica se define como la presencia en el aire de formas de energía o de partículas materiales de origen químico o biológico, que impliquen riesgo o daño para las personas y su entorno. Existen tres tipos de contaminación atmosférica:

    - A) Física

    - B) Química

    - C) Biológica

A) CONTAMINACIÓN FÍSICA O ENERGÉTICA

         Se produce a causa de la liberación al medio ambiente de algunas formas de energía capaces de ejercer efectos perjudiciales sobre las personas o sobre el medio ambiente, como por ejemplo:

   - 1) la radiactividad,

   - 2) las radiaciones electromagnéticas de baja energía

   - 3) el ruido.

A1.- CONTAMINACIÓN RADIACTIVA

         La radiactividad es la capacidad que poseen algunos elementos químicos para emitir espontáneamente determinados tipos de radiaciones o partículas de alta energía.

         Existe una radiactividad natural procedente de los elementos presentes en la corteza terrestre como el uranio o el radón. Pero es la radiactividad originada por determinadas actividades humanas la responsable del mayor grado de contaminación. Procede fundamentalmente de las centrales nucleares, que generan grandes cantidades de residuos radiactivos.

         Otras fuentes de emisión son las actividades militares (bombas y pruebas nucleares) y algunas actividades médicas que utilizan elementos radiactivos para el diagnóstico y el tratamiento de determinadas enfermedades.

         Los efectos sobre los seres vivos se relacionan con la dosis de radiación recibida, que depende de la intensidad y del tiempo de exposición. Provoca alteraciones en el ADN (mutaciones) que pueden ser la causa de malformaciones en recién nacidos, enfermedades de tipo cancerígeno e, incluso, la muerte

A2.-CONTAMINACIÓN ELECTROMAGNÉTICA

         Las líneas de alta tensión, los transformadores, las antenas y los teléfonos de telefonía móvil y algunos electrodomésticos generan radiactividad electromagnética de baja energía. Estas ondas electromagnéticas pueden causar calentamiento de los tejidos biológicos y otros efectos no térmicos, de manera que la exposición prolongada a este tipo de radiaciones podría provocar fatiga, insomnio, ansiedad, dolor de cabeza y trastornos hormonales y del sistema inmunitario.

         Es aconsejable tomar medidas de precaución y de protección frente a estas radiaciones.

A3.- Contaminación sonora: el ruido

         El ruido se puede definir como un tipo de sonido molesto, indeseado y que puede resultar peligroso para la salud humana.

         Las principales fuentes de contaminación sonora son la circulación de vehículos, el tráfico aéreo, la maquinaria utilizada en la industria y en la construcción y los lugares e ocio (bares y discotecas, especialmente). En el interior de las viviendas también se generan ruidos  por el uso de electrodomésticos, ascensores y, sobre todo, por la radio, la televisión y los equipos de música



C) CONTAMINACIÓN BIOLÓGICA

         Cuando alguien tose o estornuda, expele miles de gotas que pueden contener microorganismos responsables de enfermedades, como el virus de la gripe. La mayor parte de estos microorganismos solo se pueden propagar por el aire durante un corto periodo de tiempo, ya que no se desarrollan bien en el aire. Sin embargo, algunas bacterias, hongos y protozoos han desarrollado formas de resistencia, como las esporas, que les permiten sobrevivir durante mucho tiempo, siendo transportados de un lugar a otro por el viento.



B) CONTAMINACIÓN QUÍMICA

A veces, la contaminación atmosférica se produce por causas naturales, como las erupciones volcánicas o los incendios forestales. Pero es el vertido incontrolado a la atmósfera de sustancias químicas contaminantes generadas por la actividad humana, principalmente por la industria, el transporte y las calefacciones, lo que supone la más grave agresión sobre el medio aéreo.

         Las principales sustancias químicas contaminantes son partículas en suspensión (hollín, polvo…), óxidos de azufre (SOx) y de nitrógeno (NOx), monóxido de carbono (CO), dióxido de carbono (CO2), gases clorofluorocarbonados (CFCs), ozono, plomo, asbeto,  dioxinas, etc.

         Los contaminantes químicos son las amenazas más graves para nuestro planeta y son responsables de los grandes problemas medioambientales:

     1 -La lluvia ácida

     2 -La destrucción de la capa de ozono

     3 -El incremento del efecto invernadero

B1.- LA LLUVIA ÁCIDA: el cielo corrosivo

La lluvia ácida se produce cuando los óxidos de azufre y de nitrógeno, generados por la combustión de carbón y derivados del petróleo, se combinan con el vapor de agua de la atmósfera y se transforman en ácidos (sulfúrico y nítrico), que caen con la lluvia, la nieve o el granizo.

 La lluvia ácida destruye los suelos, los bosques y la vida de ríos y lagos de zonas del planeta, a veces muy alejadas del país causante de la contaminación
 
         B2.- AGUJEROS EN LA CAPA DE OZONO: el filtro destruido
 La capa de ozono que existe alrededor del planeta se adelgaza y casi llega a destruirse en las regiones polares por la acción de ciertos gases, como los aerosoles (CFCs), generados por las industrias de la refrigeración, y los fabricantes de sprays y espumas de poliuretano (corcho blanco).
A través de estos agujeros de la capa de ozono penetran radiaciones ultravioletas de alta energía que pueden causar ceguera y cáncer de piel.
 
B3.- INCREMENTO DEL EFECTO INVERNADERO: la fiebre del planeta
El efecto invernadero se incrementa por las emisiones de algunos gases, como el dióxido de carbono generado por la actividad volcánica, los incendios y la quema de combustibles (carbón, derivados del petróleo, etc.).
Las consecuencias previsibles a medio plazo son: un incremento de la temperatura del globo que puede provocar diversos cambios climáticos (inundaciones en unas regiones y graves sequías en otras) y la fusión parcial de los casquetes polares y de los glaciares, lo que provocaría el aumento del nivel del mar y la inundación de amplias franjas costeras.

 
LOS EFECTOS DE LA CONTAMINACIÓN
         La contaminación atmosférica tiene efectos perjudiciales sobre algunos aspectos del mismo ambiente. Ejemplo:
   -Efectos en el clima
   -Efectos en la biosfera
   -Efectos en la salud de las personas
   -Efectos en los materiales

 Debidos a la :
- Destruccción de la capa de ozono
- Aumento del efecto invernadero.
-Lluvia ácida 


Medidas para reducir los contaminantes
 Reducir el uso de combustibles fósiles
Sustituir los CFCs por otros gases no contaminantes
Promover la reforestación, para que sea absorbido el CO2

AIRE LIMPIO: ¿qué podemos hacer?
Interrumpir los ensayos nucleares y controlar los focos de emisión de ruidos.
- Ahorrar energía utilizando el transporte público, apagar las luces y la calefacción innecesarias.
- Utilizar filtros en las chimeneas de industrias y emplear tecnologías poco contaminantes.
- Evitar los aerosoles (sprays) y los envases que contienen poliestireno (corcho blanco).
- Utilizar gasolina sin plomo y revisar la emisión de gases de los vehículos.
- Sustituir la calefacción de carbón por la de gasóleo o gas ciudad.

LECTURA 
El clima de la Tierra siempre ha variado sin la intervención del ser humano; a veces, como durante las glaciaciones, de forma dramática. El problema del cambio climático que la Tierra parece estar sufriendo en la actualidad es que es demasiado rápido en comparación con los cambios “naturales”. Así, en el último siglo, el ritmo de las variaciones se ha acelerado mucho, y la tendencia es que esta aceleración se va a incrementar si no se toman medidas.
Al buscar las causas de esta aceleración en los cambios del clima, se encontró que existía una relación directa entre el aumento de la temperatura media del planeta (calentamiento global) y el aumento de las emisiones de gases de efecto invernadero (debido, sobre todo, al creciente uso de los combustibles fósiles en las sociedades industrializadas.
Si continúa este ritmo de emisión, antes de 2050 las concentraciones de CO2 se habrán duplicado con respecto a las que había antes de la revolución industrial. Según esto, se prevé que la temperatura global se incremente entre 1 y 5ºC (incremento superior a 2ºC pueden desencadenar importantes daños en los ecosistemas).

ACTIVIDADES, lectura
         El cambio climático actual, ¿es un fenómeno natural o provocado por la actividad humana?. Escribe por qué se está produciendo y por qué es tan preocupante.
         Infórmate sobre el llamado “Protocolo de Kioto” y prepara un pequeño informe sobre las medidas que pueden adoptar los gobiernos de los países para evitar el cambio climático.
         ¿Qué son las glaciaciones? ¿Qué efectos tuvieron? Compáralos con los posibles efectos del cambio climático actual.

1.- LA TIERRA COMO PLANETA
2.- EL MOVIMIENTO DE TRASLACIÓN
3.- EL MOVIMIENTO DE ROTACIÓN
4.- LA LUNA Y SUS MOVIMIENTOS
5.- LOS ECLIPSESE Y LAS MAREAS
6.- LAS CAPAS DE LA TIERRA Y SUS RECURSOS

1.- LA TIERRA COMO PLANETA

El planeta Tierra. La Tierra es un planeta de forma esférica ligeramente aplanado en los polos. Su radio ecuatorial es de 6.371km y su radio polar es 14km inferior. Dado su distancia al Sol presenta una temperatura superficial media de 20 ºC, lo cual le permito mantener seres vivos, característica que no se da en ningún otro astro conocido.
LOS PARALELOS.- Son círculos que recorren la Tierra horizontalmente, disminuyendo de tamaño hacia los polos. El más importante es el Ecuador, que es el más grande y divide la Tierra en dos mitades iguales: el hemisferio norte (boreal) y el hemisferio sur (austral).
LOS MERIDIANOS.- Son semicírculos perpendiculares al ecuador que van de polo a polo. El más importante es el meridiano cero o de Greenwich. A diferencia de los paralelos, todos los meridianos son iguales.
COMO LOCALIZAR UN PUNTO DE LA TIERRA
Cualquier punto de la superficie de la Tierra se localiza mediante sus coordenadas geográficas:
Las coordenadas geográficas son los ángulos que se utilizan para determinar la posición exacta de un punto  P, de la superficie terrestre. Se indica mediante la latitud y la longitud, cuyos valores están comprendidos entre 0º y 90º, y entre 0º y 180º, respectivamente.
-LATITUD.- Es el ángulo que separa a un punto de la Tierra del Ecuador. Todos los puntos situados sobre el mismo paralelo tiene la misma latitud. Hablamos de latitud norte cuando medimos dede el Ecuador hacia el Polo Norte, y de latitud sur cuando es del Ecuador al Polo Sur.
-LONGITUD.-Es el ángulo que separa a un punto de la Tierra del meridiano cero. Todos los puntos situados en el mismo meridiano tienen la misma latitud. Hablamos de longitud este o de longitud oeste, respectivamente

LA TIERRA ESTÁ EN CONTINUO MOVIMIENTO
El planeta Tierra. La Tierra es un planeta de forma esférica ligeramente aplanado en los polos, que está en continuo movimiento. Tienen dos movimientos:

Los movimientos de la Tierra. La Tierra presenta un movimiento de rotación sobre su eje realizando una vuelta completa cada 23 horas y 56 minutos. Debido a este movimiento hay noche y día.
También presenta un movimiento de traslación alrededor del Sol dando una vuelta completa cada 365,25 días. Por esto y para evitar desfases, tras tres años de 365 días hay un año bisiesto, es decir un año que tiene 366 días (por acuerdo este día es el 29 de febrero). Se traslada alrededor del Sol a una velocidad de aproximadamente 40 km/s describiendo una elipse en un plano denominado plano de la eclíptica



COMPLETE VERBATIM (with some mistakes)



The world was not yet ready for Peebles and Ostriker, and their ideas of dark matter. But things were about to change, thanks to Vera Rubin at the Cornegie Institute. Vera Rubin has spent decades solving the mysteries of the universe. She said,

"Wwhen I started working here I looked for a problem that i could do at my own pace. I had four children and a supportive husband but traveling was more difficult to go two observatories out west which was necessary.

The other decided to ignore the sexy science of black holes which was very big at the time and look instead of entire galaxies. By doing so she stumbled across something much more fundamental.
For 300 years, Newton's law of gravity has defined our understanding of the universe.
Gravity governs everything from falling apples to the air and flow of the tides. But fully understand scientists had to look beyond planet Earth. Gravity's mysterious part is clearest in the solar system where the Sun holds the orbiting planets in its gravitational grip

VR "If we plot the velocity of the planets as a function of distance from the Sun Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune Pluto and you can see that Mercury orbits much more rapidly and...

MUSIC
The graph is called a rotation curve it is the embodiment of the law of gravity. The further away you travel from the Sun, the weaker its gravitational force.
Galaxies work in the same way as our solar system except that instead of planets orbiting a central Sun, in a spiral galaxies stars are held in orbit by a gravity providing black hole.
In the nineteen seventies Vera's family-friendly project was looking for rotation curves in galaxies.

VR "I picked the outsides of galaxies because that was the problem that no one that I know of is studying and it was problem that i have been interested in for quite a while"

Via turned her telescopes on Andromeda galaxy closest to our own

VR " I came out with sets of numbers and I plotted the more pieces of paper and i discovered that the stars as you went further and further out did not slow down. They were moving just as fast as the stars near the center. And then a surprise that had to be explained. "

The stars seem to defy the laws of gravity the expected rotation curves weren't codes at all.

VR "If we observe the velocities of stars orbiting in the galaxy we find that their velocities remain flat all the way to the edge of our observations. That's not what was expected by correspondence with the solar system. And in fact just from Newton's law, it was expected that the velocities of the stars would fall off. So it was clear that our ideas about galaxies were incorrect."

The stars were moving too fast by rights they should simply fly off into space. It was as though they were being held in place by extra gravity and as luck would have it down the road at Princeton there was just the right amount of dark matter to provide just the right amount of extra gravity. It was a match made in heaven
          Vera Rubin's Dark Matter is a hoax ! Since 2012 I wait for Stacy Mc Gaugh post me his answer! He prefers to believe in the lucubrations of Vera Rubin and Mordehai Milgrom

READ

MERCREDI 14 DÉCEMBRE 2016

I have been patient since April 14, 2012 that Stacy Mc Gaugh answers me: whether or not he verified the statements of Vera Rubin?
Does Newton's laws prohibit high velocities for the peripheral stars of galaxies?
Did or not he verify that Mordehai Milgrom's lucubrations were useless to explain that the centripetal acceleration was maximum for stars farthest from the center of galaxies?
He never deigned to reply!
As Isaac Newton did not have the right qualifications either, he probably would not have answered either.
Too bad!
Especially since his complement to the discoveries of Tully-Fisher have placed him among the greatest discoverers of facts of recent decades.


Je patiente depuis le 14 avril 2012 que Stacy Mc Gaugh me réponde : est-ce que oui ou non il a vérifié les affirmations de Vera Rubin ?
Est-ce que oui ou non il pense toujours que les lois de Newton interdisent des vitesses élevées pour les étoiles périphériques des galaxies ?
Est-ce que oui ou non il a vérifié que les élucubrations de Mordehai Milgrom étaient inutiles pour expliquer que l'accélération centripète était maximale pour les étoiles les plus éloignées du centre des galaxies ?
Il n'a jamais daigné répondre !
Comme Isaac Newton n'avait pas - lui non plus - les bons diplômes, il ne lui aurait sans doute pas répondu non plus.
C'est dommage !
D'autant plus que son complément aux découvertes de Tully-Fisher l'ont placé parmi les plus grands découvreurs de faits des récentes décennies.

Oggi il pesciolino Arcobaleno non riesce proprio a prendere sonno.

Niente sembra essergli d'aiuto, se non... la mamma! Solo lei può far scappare lo squalo più minaccioso, riportare Arcobaleno a casa se si perde, consolarlo se un brutto sogno gli mette paura.

          ALGUNAS NOTAS ACERCA DE LA POESÍA Y LOS CHICOS   

EL ARBOL DEL CIELO: Taller de niños coordinado por Laura Forchetti en Dorrego (Pcia de Buenos Aires)
Vegetal y provocativo el taller tiene nombre de árbol. Evoca y convoca a pensar en el que todavía crece en la vieja estación. Según el relato del poeta Roberto Juarroz, que nació en El Perdido y vivió hasta los doce años en Dorrego, su madre lo acunaba sentada a su sombra.
Este otro árbol del cielo, cobijador de pibes, los convoca en rondas de palabras y silencios confirmando la voz de la poesía.
Maravilla los textos, encantamiento y hondura la posición que la coordinadora elige para guiarlos y acompañarlos.
Mirta Colangelo
El sol entra en bandas a través de la ventana. Afuera el aire está quieto, hay una acacia renovando sus hojas. Un grupo de chicos, en torno a la mesa, revuelve libros, mira rápido y descarta. Pasa la vista sobre hojas y palabras. De pronto, empiezan a hacer silencio, a detenerse en alguna página, a balbucear, a leer. He traído 15 o 20 libros con poemas. He elegido los más pequeños, las ediciones simples, pero con los grandes nombres, con los grandes poetas. Invito a que cada uno elija una poesía para leer a sus compañeros. Y cada uno, con su voz, con una voz de mar o de agua que gotea, de viento o de camino de hormigas, cada uno con su voz trae a la mesa el poema elegido. Alimentados por esos versos, hamacados por una música siempre diferente, seducidos por las palabras como si las escucharan por primera vez, se animan después a la escritura. Cada inicio de taller con un grupo nuevo de chicos me produce la misma inquietud y la misma esperanza. Si me preguntan cuál es el objetivo de esta reunión en torno a las palabras, no diré que es que estos chicos escriban poesía. Eso sólo es parte del juego.
Mi esperanza es tal vez más difícil.
Mi esperanza es que descubran, aunque sea en un reflejo fugaz, qué es la poesía, el lenguaje de la poesía. Y cuando digo poesía, no digo sólo palabras.
Esa cosa misteriosa, que desvía nuestra mirada hacia lo mínimo o hacia lo infinito.
Eso que hace que nuestra percepción del mundo, nuestro aprendizaje, se vuelva personal e intenso, que se revele de las formas prescriptas.
Mirar diferente y libre y pleno.
Poder escapar a la domesticación y al miedo, al pensamiento en serie y al vacío.
De eso se trata para mí, este trabajo en la poesía con los chicos.
¿De qué manera? ¿Con qué recursos?
El único recurso esencial es la pasión por la poesía, la fascinación propia con cada autor, con cada verso, el goce con las palabras y con el juego.
La puerta siempre abierta al juego y al asombro y el oído atentísimo a la voz de los chicos.
Todo lo demás, herramientas propias o prestadas que aparecen ante cada necesidad.
Leer en voz alta

Todo lo que usted quiera, sí señor, pero son las palabras las que cantan, las que suben y bajan...las agarro al vuelo, cuando van zumbando, y las atrapo, las limpio, las pelo, me preparo frente al plato, las siento cristalinas, vibrantes, ebúrneas, vegetales, aceitosas, como frutas, como algas, como ágatas, como aceitunas.

Con esas palabras Neruda parece darnos un secreto para nuestra tarea de animadores/maestros de taller.
Con la red preparada para atraparlas estaremos, con la red fina para que no se escapen las zumbadoras, las deliciosas.
Hay que afinar el oído a la poesía, a las buenas palabras, a los acentos, a los milagros.

Fines de noviembre, un jueves, preparando el cierre del taller, probábamos ideas con los chicos. Pasó de pronto, Tomás lo dijo y se hizo silencio: El futuro ya fue así.
-¿Qué decís?- preguntaron varios.
Repetí en voz alta las palabras de Tomás y lo escribí para que no se pierda.
-Bueno no sé, me equivoqué.- Tomás se justificaba.
Pero el juego se había abierto: El futuro ya fue así.
Lo repetí varias veces para que cada uno saboreara el misterio.

Los animadores/maestros debemos estar atentos a las palabras que aparecen. Nuestra herramienta es la palabra, de ella nos alimentamos.
Así, entonces, las palabras que los chicos ponen en sus escritos cuidadosamente, o esas otras que aparecen de improviso, rayo de luz que se filtra por las rendijas, las palabras iluminadoras, debemos recogerlas, repetirlas, hacerlas sonar en la gama completa de sus colores.
Afinar el oído y entrenar la voz.
Esas palabras deben ser vueltas a decir para destacar su rara belleza, su claridad y sus sombras.
Volver a decirlas lento, disfrutando de su sabor.
El animador/maestro recupera así la costumbre de leer en voz alta, de leer para los otros, de leer para la comprensión y el goce de lo sensual.

La poesía es música, ritmo, tambor y murmullo, respiración y silencio.
El animador/maestro devuelve lo escrito al oído, le devuelve así la voz a la palabra.
¿Qué poesía para los chicos?

Repaso lo que he trabajado tantas veces con los chicos de los talleres.
Hemos indagado en textos increíbles como El Quijote, Kafka, las mitologías.
Nos hemos detenido sobre pinturas y dibujos de Picasso, Modigliani, Matisse, Xul Solar, Miró.
Hemos leídos a Girondo, Prevert, Cortázar, Pizarnik, Calvino, así como a muchos jóvenes poetas de nuestro país.
¿Eso es literatura para chicos? ¿Eso se hace en un taller de escritura infantil?
Dice Marc Soriano: Además de la buena poesía que les esté destinada los niños pueden y merecen conocer la poesía de autores como Walt Whitman, Petofi, Camoens, Pessoa, García Lorca, etc, etc.
Ante estas ideas, suele objetarse que estos autores no escribieron para niños, que sus textos suelen ser difíciles, oscuros.
Entonces, Marc Soriano, nos alcanza las palabras de Juan Ramón Jiménez:
Nada importa que el niño no lo entienda, no lo comprenda todo. Basta que tome el sentimiento profundo, que se contagie el acento como se llena de la frescura del agua corriente, del calor del sol y de la fragancia de los árboles; árboles, sol y agua que ni el niño ni el hombre ni el poeta mismo entienden en último término lo que significan.
Ese es el objetivo del trabajo en el taller y los textos de los chicos son testimonio de lo que el sentimiento y el acento de los grandes artistas contagió en ellos.
Para hacer crecer el deseo de la palabra, para iniciarnos en la larga historia de las pasiones y los dolores que los hombres expresan a través de sus obras, nos hemos sumergido en los siete mares de la poesía.

Bostezos

Todo era bostezos, no había nada más que bostezos.
Bostezos de estudiantes, de universitarios.
De obreros, de profesionales, de abogados, de jueces,
del culpable por el que se hacía el juicio.
Bostezos de fotógrafos, de actores, del público,
de los periodistas.
Bostezos de los que leían el diario del domingo.
Bostezos largos, aburridos, tontos, cortos.
Bostezos aquí. Bostezos allá.
Bostezos, bostezos, todo era bostezos.
Amarillo

Las hojas secas son como cajas chinas,
como aviones de paz,
casas voladoras.
El otoño huele
a quemado
a barcos hundidos
a ajo.
Hay un sonido de maracas
entre las cañas de bambú.

Rey, rey, rey.
Crezca mi flor, crezca a lo alto.
Salta la rana, rana, rana, rana.
Hace letras mi mago
siempre, siempre en mi mundo.
Me olvidé, me olvidé,
me olvidé de vos.

          Genesi Biblica   

L'argomento trattato dal testo Genesi Biblica, riguarda sia la creazione dell'universo, del sistema solare e della terra con tutte le metamorfosi che quest'ultima ha avuto prima di assumere l'aspetto attuale, sia la creazione dell'Uomo e della Donna nella loro perfezione assoluta, il loro habitat e il successivo degrado dei cainiti a causa del peccato originale.

L'originalità dell'opera sta nelle spiegazioni che il Signore dà sia in campo scientifico che genetico, aprendo orizzonti nuovi alla scienza odierna.

Dall'Introduzione

Questa rivelazione, perché di una rivelazione divina si tratta, è finalizzata a chiarire con argomenti scientifici ma accessibili a tutti, i punti oscuri della Genesi. Il Signore rivendica a Sé ogni atto creativo e spiega le modalità con cui è intervenuto direttamente sia nella creazione dell'Uomo che di qualunque altra specie.

In sintesi Dio dice che ogni creazione di una nuova specie è sempre partita da un seme e che mai una pianta o un animale è stato creato allo stato già sviluppato come per magia, sebbene questo Gli sarebbe stato possibile essendo Egli Potenza Assoluta. Questo principio di iniziare ogni creazione dal seme vale sia per l'universo che per la vita.

Non spiega come creò la vita ai suoi albori ma, mostrando come operò per creare il primo Uomo e la prima Donna , suggerisce di estendere questo principio anche alla creazione di tutte le altre specie più evolute.

Quindi, anche il primo Uomo e la prima Donna non furono creati già adulti, come vorrebbero i creazionisti fondamentalisti, né in via di evoluzione come vorrebbero gli evoluzionisti, ma vennero creati nella loro prima cellula e già nella loro perfezione assoluta.

E dove mai avrebbe potuto svilupparsi la vita in embrione se non nell'utero di una femmina di una specie già esistente?

A questo scopo il Signore si servì, come ‘mezzo' per la creazione dell'Uomo e della Donna, di una femmina di una specie ora estinta. Perciò questo processo è stato chiamato ‘creazione mediata' perché, come dice il termine, Dio ha usato come ‘mezzo' o supporto ciò che era già stato creato. Regola questa usata, prima ancora, per la creazione di qualsiasi altra nuova specie.

La sola, ma importantissima, differenza fu che nella creazione dell'Uomo e della Donna Dio aggiunse, fin dall'attimo del loro concepimento, un elemento nuovo, il Suo Spirito, così che essi divennero spiritualmente Suoi figli.

Quindi l'Uomo deriva ma non discende dalla specie immediatamente inferiore perché in tutto e per tutto è nuova creazione non essendo passato alcun gene dalla specie inferiore a quella superiore. Passò solo il nutrimento. (Ciò non toglie che per evitare problemi di rigetto le due specie siano state create con numerosi geni uguali).

Dice inoltre il Signore che per ogni specie Egli creò una sola coppia di capostipiti, maschio e femmina, entrambi con i caratteri di specie già definita. Fu l'enorme quantità di specie in progressione di sempre maggior complessità e perfezione ad indurre in errore gli evoluzionisti che dedussero che il processo evolutivo fosse spontaneo.

Il Signore poi fa vedere come la specie umana, creata perfetta, fu inquinata da un atto di ibridazione commesso già alla prima generazione con la specie dalla quale era derivata: ibridazione che pregiudicò le generazioni successive. In questa disobbedienza, che in verità fu un peccato di estrema presunzione e autosufficienza, consiste il peccato originale.

La specie umana, quindi, s'inabissò in un'involuzione psicosomatica che le fece perdere i suoi requisiti di specie pura e perfetta e, quel che più conta, gli uomini ibridi persero anche lo Spirito di Dio perché Dio non poteva abitate in esseri bestiali.

Solo dopo che le frange più compromesse furono spazzate via da selezioni di vario tipo, il Signore iniziò il suo recupero iniziando un processo di rievoluzione della specie ibrida alla quale appartiene oggi tutto il genere umano. I reperti archeologici sono dunque la prova non dell'evoluzione della specie umana, bensì del suo decadimento e della sua rievoluzione, fenomeni che spesso si sono intrecciati fra loro. E questo processo di recupero è ancora in atto.

Quando poi l'umanità rievoluta raggiunse un livello di sufficiente capacità di intendere e di volere, cioè nella pienezza dei tempi, Dio mandò Suo Figlio Gesù affinché ridonasse il Suo Spirito a tutti i miti e i giusti della terra così che, per la Sua obbedienza e mediazione, essi potessero esser riammessi all'eredità spirituale e potessero esser riaperte loro le porte dell'eterna felicità.

Questa rivelazione è di una semplicità e di una logica straordinarie, come lo è del resto ogni cosa che proviene da Dio.

 


 

 

          Winston   

Winston è il capo della comunità di orsi polari di Churchill, nella regione di Manitoba, in Canada.

Un giorno convoca tutti gli orsi del villaggio: "Il ghiaccio si sta sciogliendo", dice preoccupato.

"Stiamo perdendo la nostra casa". Bisogna agire subito e spiegare agli uomini i rischi del riscaldamento globale, provocato dagli scarichi delle auto e dall'inquinamento delle fabbriche.

Ed ecco che gli orsi di Churchill organizzano una manifestazione con striscioni, cartelli e slogan ("Ghiaccio è bello!" "Energia solare", "Ridateci il freddo"): tutto è pronto per l'arrivo dei turisti sui loro fuoristrada, ma sul più bello Winston scoprirà che il primo a dover cambiare stile di vita è proprio lui...

          Quante Cose So    

Quante cose si scoprono, semplicemente stando seduti ad osservare!

Da una lumaca in bastimento al cielo illuminato dalla luna, non c'è confine fra realtà e fantasia: ogni giorno scopro di sapere una cosa in più, "e più divento grande più ne saprò". Solare e ritmico, allegro e imprevedibile, il testo di Ann Rand è un repertorio di piccole meraviglie quotidiane che aspettano soltanto di essere scoperte; illustrato con i colorati disegni di Paul Rand, "Quante cose so" è un classico fra i libri per bambini, pubblicato per la prima volta nel 1956.

Paul Rand (1914 – 1996) ha studiato al Pratt Institute e alla Parson's School of Design, ed è stato allievo di George Grosz, maestro dell'Espressionismo tedesco.
Internazionalmente conosciuto per il suo contributo al graphic design attraverso marchi e corporate identities aziendali (per società come IBM, Westinghouse, ABC e UPS, molti dei quali tuttora in uso), Paul Rand è stato protagonista di un approccio "artistico" al mondo della pubblicità e della comunicazione, grazie al suo talento nel trasformare l'oggetto quotidiano in "simbolo" al servizio di un'idea. È stato autore di numerosi contributi sul graphic design, ha tenuto corsi e letture e ha illustrato numerosi libri per bambini.

Ann Rand ha scritto cinque libri per bambini, quattro dei quali illustrati dal marito, Paul Rand. Insieme hanno creato volumi spontanei, espressione di leggerezza ed esuberanza, basati sull'immediatezza di testi e immagini

Età di lettura: da 3 anni.

brutto carattere, un grandissimo piagnone!

Non perdeva occasione per piangere e lamentarsi
in ogni modo, quando qualcuno lo sgridava
o lo prendeva in giro, quando voleva qualcosa
dalla mamma...

Un giorno si mise a fare i capricci per
convincerla a comprargli un gioco.

Tentò di tutto, ma senza successo.

Allora continuò a piagnucolare fino a casa.

I genitori decisero di lasciarlo piangere, senza
entrare nella sua cameretta per consolarlo.

Mille Lacrime continuò così fino a che
non allagò il pavimento, poi si addormentò.
Al suo risveglio, si trovò in un mare di lacrime...

          Equistelle    

Candido come Pegaso, notturno e tenebroso come Sleipnir, divo del cinema come Furia, arrogante e impertinente come Jolly Jumper, feroce come Bucefalo, misterioso e selvaggio come l'Unicorno, folle come Ronzinante, diabolico come tutti i destrieri neri: il cavallo è sempre stato il più importante compagno dell'uomo.

Il legame che unisce l'uomo al cavallo viene da lontano, viene dal profondo.

Cosa sarebbe la vita dell'uomo senza i cavalli? E, soprattutto, cosa sarebbe stata, visto che non esiste condottiero, esploratore, generale, imperatore, eroe del West, che non abbia legato il suo nome e le sue imprese al proprio cavallo? E che dire dei cavalli che compaiono come inseparabili e silenziosi compagni nelle sepolture di principi e guerrieri?

Contemporaneamente simbolo solare e lunare, il cavallo accompagna le figure degli dei e degli eroi nell'immaginario religioso dall'Egitto alla valle del Danubio, al Nord Europa. Anche i santi cavalieri dell'iconografia cristiana appartengono agli stessi moduli espressivi. In molti casi può parlare ed ha doti di chiaroveggenza, è un indovino e possiede poteri magici.

Come grande figura lunare, si collega ai cosiddetti "cavalli infernali", neri e terrificanti o ai "cavalli pallidi", di biancore cadaverico che abbondano nelle fiabe e nelle leggende della tradizione europea.

Nel suo aspetto "solare", è il cavallo bianco che ogni eroe cavalca per sconfiggere il male.

Età di lettura: da 8 anni.

          Galileo e la Prima Guerra Stellare   

Edizione speciale e copertina nuova di zecca, per festeggiare i quattrocento anni da quando Galileo puntò il cannocchiale verso il cielo!

Quattrocento anni fa Galileo guardò dentro il cannocchiale, verso il cielo, e prese nota di quello che vide – e quello che vide contribuì a cambiare il nostro modo di pensare alle cose del cielo e, di lì a poco, anche il nostro modo di pensare alle cose della Terra…

Galileo ha inventato la scienza moderna.

Costruì innumerevoli strumenti e fece spettacolo con i suoi esperimenti. Scoprì mille cose: le montagne della Luna, i satelliti di Giove e le macchie solari. In questo libro Galileo in persona racconta la sua vita, da ragazzino a Pisa dove imparò a suonare il flauto e l'organo in famiglia, alla vecchiaia confinato dall'Inquisizione nella casa di Arcetri, dove benché cieco, non perse il gusto della ricerca e della polemica, circondato da amici ed allievi.

Alla fine, un piccolo dizionario “stellare” per capire meglio le teorie e le idee di questo grande scienziato e un’eccezionale intervista condotta dall’autore Luca Novelli a Galileo Galilei in persona, venuto a trovarci in occasione dell’Anno Internazionale dell’Astronomia e a festeggiare i 400 anni esatti da quando puntò il suo cannocchiale verso la Luna.

REPORTAGEM-BOMBA DE 'ISTOÉ' REVELA QUE LULA SERÁ CONDENADO. PENA PODERÁ TOTALIZAR 22 ANOS DE CADEIA.  A revista IstoÉ que chegas às bancas neste sábado revive as já denominadas "reportagens bomba" e afirma que Lula deverá ser condenado pelo Juiz Sergio Moro a 22 anos de cadeia. Ao que parece os procuradores da Operação Lava Jato têm provas definitivas e irrefutáveis contra o ex-todo poderoso chefão do PT que desde a explosão do petrolão não tem mais coragem de andar pelas ruas. Só viaja de avião particular emprestado por seu amigo, o ex-ministro do Turismo, Walfrido dos Mares Guia. Segue a íntegra da reportagem de IstoÉ. Mais do que nunca, os olhares do mundo político e jurídico estão voltados para as movimentações do juiz Sergio Fernandes Moro, da 13ª Vara Federal do Paraná. Nos próximos dias, ele anunciará a sentença que condenará Lula à prisão no caso do tríplex do Guarujá por corrupção passiva e lavagem de dinheiro. O ex-presidente é acusado de ter recebido o imóvel da OAS como contrapartida às benesses que a empreiteira obteve do governo no período em que o petista esteve no poder. Segundo o Ministério Público Federal (MPF), o ex-presidente foi beneficiado com pelo menos R$ 87,6 milhões dados pela OAS, dos quais R$ 3,7 milhões foram usados por Lula no apartamento de três pavimentos. Conforme apurou ISTOÉ junto a integrantes da Lava Jato, o petista vai pegar até 22 anos de cadeia – 10 anos por lavagem de dinheiro e 12 por corrupção passiva. No cronograma de Sérgio Moro só uma etapa o separa do anúncio da condenação de Lula: a definição da pena a ser aplicada ao ex-ministro Antonio Palocci, hoje preso. A defesa de Lula está tão perdida nesse processo quanto o próprio cliente. Sem argumentos sólidos para defendê-lo, os advogados do petista apelam para o jogo sujo e chicanas jurídicas. Chegaram ao desplante de afirmar que os procuradores usariam, na acusação a Lula, a mesma teoria aplicada por Hitler em seu primeiro discurso como chanceler da Alemanha na qual o ditador nazista defendeu a “elasticidade dos veredictos”. Ou seja, que a posição dos procuradores seria manifestamente contrária às provas dos autos. Uma excrescência. Ao contrário do que alardeiam os advogados do petista, o MPF dispõe de farta documentação e depoimentos que demonstram que o ex-presidente ocultou a propriedade. Nas alegações finais enviadas ao juiz Moro, na última semana, o dono da OAS, Léo Pinheiro, atestou que o imóvel era mesmo de Lula.“O tríplex nunca foi posto à venda e as reformas foram executadas seguindo orientações dos reais proprietários do imóvel, o ex-presidente Lula e sua esposa. O projeto de reforma foi aprovado na residência do ex-presidente”, escreve o advogado de Pinheiro, José Luiz Oliveira Lima. O advogado esclarece na defesa da OAS que o tríplex, “bem mais caro do que o apartamento que Lula tinha no local”, não saiu de graça. “Os gastos feitos eram contabilizados e descontados da propina devida pela empresa ao PT em obras da Petrobras. Tudo com a anuência de seu líder partidário (Lula)”, afirmou.  Apesar de todas as evidências de que cometeu vários crimes, Lula, como todo acusado que cai nas garras da Justiça, insiste em alegar inocência. Em entrevista a Rádio Tupi do Rio na manhã da última terça-feira 20, o ex-presidente classificou de “piada” a peça acusatória dos procuradores da Lava Jato. “Espero que o Moro leia os autos e anuncie para o Brasil a minha inocência. Eu já provei que sou inocente. Quero que eles agora provem minha culpa”, acrescentou. Em nota oficial, os procuradores do MPF foram contundentes ao rebater Lula. “A defesa do ex-presidente está usando recursos eticamente duvidosos para atacar. Quer transformar um julgamento de crimes por corrupção em julgamento político”, dizem os procuradores do MPF. Eles reiteraram que, “apesar de todas as dificuldades para superar a impunidade, todo esse processo pode restabelecer a crença de que é possível termos um País onde todos sejam efetivamente iguais perante a lei”. O imóvel efetivamente não se encontra no nome do ex-presidente, mas a corrupção está fartamente provada, já que as benfeitorias no imóvel aconteceram e constituíram uma contrapartida ao tráfico de influência exercido pelo petista em favor da OAS. Mesmo assim, a ideia era de que o apartamento fosse transferido mais tarde para Lula. Segundo Léo Pinheiro, a transferência fazia parte do acordo firmado com Paulo Okamotto, diretor do Instituto Lula e braço direito do ex-presidente. A eclosão do escândalo, no entanto, alterou os planos.  UM JUIZ IMPLACÁVEL Moro já condenou 76 pessoas na Lava Jato. Lula está na fila. Palocci é o próximo. Foto:Miguel Shincariol/IstoÉ Na
