          Zeolith-Katalysatoren ebnen den Weg für dezentrale Chemieproduktion   
Immer mehr Strom wird dezentral erzeugt – durch Windräder, Wasserkraft und Solaranlagen. Da liegt es nahe, auch die Chemieproduktion zu dezentralisieren. Bisher ist dies nicht möglich, weil chemische Prozesse viel Energie benötigen. Mit einem neuen Katalysatorkonzept ist es Forscherinnen und Forschern der Technischen Universität München (TUM) jetzt gelungen, Temperatur und Energiebedarf eines wichtigen Schrittes im chemischen Prozess entscheidend zu senken. Der Trick: Die Reaktion findet auf engstem Raum, im Inneren von Zeolith-Kristallen statt.

                                  Todo para una porristas... :)

Plan de entrenamiento de 2 semanas para porristas
Las prueba para porristas generalmente se llevan a cabo una vez al año , así que es importante prepararse bien por adelantado si quieres formar parte del equipo. ya sea que quieras ingresar a un equipo de porritas de escuela primaria , secundaria o universitaria , de todas las estrellas o semi profesionales , la competencia será más fuerte , y la mayoría de los equipos tienes un número limitado de vacantes disponibles. Podrías estar compitiendo contra miembros anteriores del equipo , porristas experimentadas y gimnastas , haci que es mejor llegar a las pruebas bien preparada.

                             como ser una buena porrista??????????????????

1_ practica gritar desde tu diafragma , enunciando claramente tus palabras. Las porristas usan este método cuando hacen ovaciones y cánticos , ya que les asegura que tendrán la suficiente potencia mientras desempeñan saltos y bailes.

2_ estira todos los días por 20 minutos antes de las pruebas. La flexibilidad  es clave para lograr buenos saltos , sino que te mantendrá a salvo cuando des vueltas y hagas bailes acrobáticos.

3_ haz entrenamiento de fuerza al menos tres veces por semana en tu camino a las pruebas. Las bases , los observadores o los volantes necesitan tener fuerza; las mejores porristas son tan fuertes como flexibles. Puedes comenzar haciendo tres o cuatro juegos de 8 a 12 repeticiones de cada uno de los siguientes ejercicios: sentadillas básicas , estocadas hacia delante y hacia atrás , abdominales  y flexiones de brazo.

4_  corre , trota o camina 30 minutos al menos tres veces por semana antes de las pruebas. Esto te ayudará a fortalecer tu resistencia , que es crucial en la animación. Si prefieres puedes usar una máquina elíptica , una bicicleta.

5_ salta frente a un espejo para revisar tu postura y la posición de tus brazos. Si no tienes aseso a un espejo lo suficientemente largo como para ver tus saltos , has que un amigo te grave cuando saltas para que puedas ver tus imágenes. Alternativamente puedes pedirle a un amigo que tenga conocimiento sobre animación que te ofrezca una critica de los mismos. Si bien es ideal que tus pierna puedan elevarse alto , lo más importante es que tu espalda se mantenga recta y tus brazos fuertes. Por sobre todo lo demás , demuéstrale a los jueces que estás en buena forma.

                                       rutina de porras :)

¿Qué es una porrista o cheerleader?


Puede resultar difícil considerar que los porristas ocheerleaders(como se les conoce en casi todo el mundo) sean deportistas en forma, quizá porque no los veamos tras un balón , esto puede llevarnos a pensar que esta actividad carece de elementos para considerarse un deporte.
Para muchos participantes esta actividad más que un deporte es un estilo de vida, ya que engloba una gama de actitudes y valores formativos tales como: lealtad, disciplina, liderazgo, trabajo en equipo y unión; necesarios para formar un grupo verdadero deporristas.


Una cheerleader o una porrista es una mujer practicante del arte de realizar rutinas que son una mezcla original de baile con música haciendo énfasis en efectos visuales, levantamientos, extensiones, pirámides, movimientos de fuerza, precisión, transiciones de figuras y secuencias que integran distintos cambios de altura todos creados para contagiar de entusiasmo a los espectadores durante las exhibiciones.
es bastante difícil. Sin mencionar que es de los deportes donde más lastimados hay además del fut-ball americano..

Para participar en un equipo de porristas será necesario desarrollar una excelente condición física, disciplina, elasticidad, potencia y fuerza para que todo el equipo se vea tan coordinado y preciso que parezca uno solo.

Los practicantes de esta disciplina se caracterizan por ser desenvueltos, con liderazgo, que saben inyectar entre la gente que los rodea su espíritu de lucha y triunfo, además de mostrar jovialidad, carisma y facilidad para impulsar a sus compañeros a lograr sus metas.
El Deporte de Animación es tan completo que los participantes desarrollan sus habilidades psicomotrices al practicar diversidad de patrones de movimiento, habilidades gimnásticas, acondicionamiento físico, etc., brindándoles una salud y mentalidad óptimos para enfrentar cualquier situación que se les presente durante su desarrollo.

Plan de entrenamiento de 2 semanas para porristas

Con el fin de preparar tu cuerpo para los rigores de las porristas, necesitas resistencia, fuerza, flexibilidad y equilibrio. Cuando sea posible, elije ejercicios inspirados en las porristas, ya que te entrenan de la misma manera que lo harías al hacer porras. Un plan progresivo que aumenta en dificultad durante un período de dos semanas es una manera efectiva de ganar los beneficios que necesitas.

Resistencia

Como porrista, necesitas resistencia para realizar los aplausos, bailes, volteretas, saltos y acrobacias requeridas. La actividad aeróbica que hace latir tu corazón y pone a tus pulmones a trabajar más duro es lo que necesitas para desarrollar resistencia. Haz por lo menos tres sesiones de actividad aeróbica a la semana durante el programa. Si lo deseas, puedes hacer actividad aeróbica en cada entrenamiento. Para una actividad de resistencia inspirada en las porristas, considera realizar tus aplausos y bailes en sucesión rápida, similar a una rutina de danza aeróbica. No tomes descansos entre los vítores y los bailes. Realiza cada elemento varias veces si es necesario con el fin de llenar el tiempo asignado. El objetivo de la primera semana es hacer al menos 30 minutos de actividad aeróbica. En la segunda semana, aumenta tu sesión de resistencia por lo menos 10 minutos.

Fortaleza

La fuerza pura que se necesita para conseguir levantar tu cuerpo del suelo en los saltos complejos y difíciles habilidades de giros. Levantar a otra animadora del suelo no es tarea fácil. Incluye un componente de entrenamiento de la fuerza por lo menos tres veces a la semana en tus dos semanas de entrenamiento. Toma un día de descanso en el medio para permitir que tus músculos se recuperen. Los ejercicios que utilizan tu propio peso corporal para la resistencia son más fáciles de incorporar, ya que no requieren ningún equipo y se pueden hacer en cualquier lugar. Considera la posibilidad de hacer sentadillas y estocadas en tus piernas, flexiones de pecho y los brazos y abdominales para construir una base fuerte. Un gran entrenamiento de ejercicios de torso que imita los movimientos de un salto es el situp V o navaja. Parte de espaldas con las piernas estiradas y los brazos extendidos sobre la cabeza. Levanta los brazos y las piernas, al mismo tiempo, que pones tu cuerpo en una posición en V con sólo tu trasero en contacto con el suelo. Baja la espalda hacia la posición de partida, pero no dejes que tus brazos o piernas toquen el suelo entre repeticiones. Realiza levantamientos en V en grupos de 10. En la segunda semana, haz tres a cinco series de 10.

Flexibilidad

Las porristas tienen que ser extremadamente flexibles. La posición de saltar con las piernas abiertas y tocar tus pies y la postura arqueada de la llamada posición de picadura de escorpión requieren de músculos flexibles y una amplia gama de movimiento en las articulaciones. Estira todos los días durante tu programa de dos semanas. Calienta tus músculos antes de los estiramientos y mantén todas las posiciones de estiramiento durante 30 segundos. Incluye abrirte de piernas, ponerlas en casi 180 grados y estiramientos de puente. Mejorar la flexibilidad lleva tiempo. No hay que esperar milagros al término de dos semanas. El entrenamiento de la flexibilidad es algo que tendrás que continuar mucho después de que tu programa de entrenamiento de dos semanas haya terminado.

Equilibrio

El buen equilibrio te ayudará a balancearte en una postura de acrobacia, proporcionar una base sólida para la acrobacia y aterrizar con seguridad después de las volteretas y saltos. Entrénate para el equilibrio en cada sesión que hagas mediante la ejecución de posiciones de acrobacia en el suelo. Por ejemplo, párate con los pies al ancho de las caderas y los brazos encima de la cabeza en una posición de V alta. Practica la alineación correcta tirando de los abdominales hacia la columna y relajando los hombros. Realiza posiciones de un pie, como una libertad y estiramiento del talón también. Durante una semana, ejecuta tus posiciones en tierra firme. En la segunda semana de tu programa, intenta estas posiciones en algo que ponga a prueba tu estabilidad. Si tienes acceso a un colchón de oscilación, que se asemeje a un balón de estabilidad aplanado, realiza tus posiciones de acrobacia sobre el mismo. De lo contrario, sólo tienes que mantener el equilibrio sobre una almohada o un cojín de sofá.

          X-Men: Gold – Young Mutants in Love (or Love Is Golden)   

The on-again-off-again roller-coaster romance of Kitty Pryde and Peter Rasputin’s become the stuff of legend among X-Men fans, and it’s about to receive a new wrinkle in X-MEN: GOLD #9, out August 8.

The two star-crossed lovers first met in UNCANNY X-MEN #129 when Kitty first walked into the original X-Mansion and met the man-mountain mutant called Colossus. An inauspicious beginning to such a star-crossed love story, to be sure, but by UNCANNY X-MEN #174 they’d recognized their attraction to each other and shared a kiss or three.

Peter threw the first monkeywrench into the mix right around the time he’d returned from the first Secret Wars in UNCANNY X-MEN #183 and declared his love for the alien Zsaji to Kitty, though said Zsaji’d perished by that time. Ms. Pryde ratcheted up the anti-feels by joining Excalibur and heading into a hot-and-heavy thing with a guy named Pete Wisdom—a relationship Peter gave his “blessing” to, but also kept one metallic eye on.

When the Legacy Virus later tore apart the mutant population, Colossus seemingly sacrificed his life during the chaos in X-MEN #110, prompting Kitty to sort out her feelings for the big lunk and insure his ashes traveled back to Russia. Imagine her surprise when Peter turned up hale and hearty in ASTONISHING X-MEN #14, strange situation which led to a passionate reunion and a new outbreak of dating.

Alas, right around the time of the X-Men’s latest disagreement with the Juggernaut and his power source Cyttorak in UNCANNY X-MEN #543, Kitty broke it off again with Peter when she disagreed with his well-intentioned noble thoughts to die for her in battle. Sadly, that meant that she and Colossus’ couple-ness still existed in a state of suspension when Kitty got stuck in a giant bullet traveling around the solar system in GIANT-SIZE ASTONISHING X-MEN #1. Peter tried to move on with his life, but to his credit, he tattooed “Katya” in her memory on his chest in UNCANNY X-MEN #507

No good mutant hero ever stays lost, though, and so Kitty Pryde returned to Earth, thanks to Magneto, in UNCANNY X-MEN #522 and reclaimed her claim to the big metal guy in UNCANNY X-MEN #522…which of course hit the skids by UNCANNY X-MEN #543. The former Shadowcat struck up a few new relationships in the aftermath, in particular with Iceman in WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #14, and with Star-Lord in X-MEN: THE TRIAL OF JEAN GREY #1-6

Today, Kitty’s done with star-hopping scoundrels and Peter’s, well, Peter, and the two of them, as seen in X-MEN: GOLD #1, believe they can fight alongside each other as “just friends.” But, anybody who’s ever been in their position knows that trick never really works, right?

Stay tuned…we should be finding out whether or not our beloved Kitlossus will ever be a thing again very, very soon.

          Prefeito de Picuí acompanha engenheiros da Sudene em vistoria nas obras do programa água para todos   
Ascom -

Na manhã dessa quinta-feira 29, o prefeito Olivânio juntamente com o líder da bancada na câmara, vereador Ranieri, estiveram acompanhando os engenheiros da SUDENE na vistoria das obras do sistema de abastecimento singelo do Programa água para todos nas comunidades Quixaba, Massapê e Lajedo do Tomaz. 
Orçado em R$ 390.000,00 o projeto teve início em 2014 por meio de um processo de dispensa de licitação, tendo como contratada a empresa U.s. Matic que chegou a instalar bombas e placas de energia solar nos três poços já existentes, a mesa recebeu a importância de R$ 78.000,00 o que corresponde a 15% do valor do convênio. 
Por meio de uma nova licitação, tendo como vencedora a empresa Polyefe, a obra ficou parada até o final de dezembro de 2016 e retomada pós ordem de serviço concedida pelo prefeito Olivânio. O sistema é composto de poço artesiano, extensa rede de canos, chafariz espalhados pela comunidade, casa de cloração, bomba d’água, caixa d’água principal de 10 (dez) mil litros que recebe a água e alimenta todo sistema e caixa d’água secundária de 5 (cinco) mil litros. O sistema é simples, porém de grande serventia quando concluído. 
Devido à demora na execução da obra que se arrasta a quase 4 (anos), a prefeitura vai ter que arcar com os danos ao sistema, a exemplo de comprar bombas elétricas, tendo em vista que, as bombas instaladas na primeira etapa, não possuem capacidade de abastecer os sistemas. No término da visita, os engenheiros ficaram satisfeitos com a conclusão dos serviços. A prefeitura deverá colocar o sistema para funcionar nos próximos dias.

          Investments in Renewable Energy to Top US$7 Trillion by 2040   
The 2017 edition of Bloomberg's 'New Energy Outlook' estimates that through 2040, US$10.2 trillion will be invested in electric power generation, 7.4 trillion of which will go to renewable energy. While falling costs of solar and wind power will accelerate a global energy transition, an additional US$5.3 trillion is required to put the power sector on a trajectory to limit global warming to 2ºC, according to the report. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Asian Development Bank and the World Bank have undertaken renewable energy projects in Turkey, China and Solomon Islands, respectively.
          New York, Massachusetts Move on Energy Storage Targets   
Massachusetts set its first targets, and quickly drew criticism for starting too low. New York lawmakers took their first step by passing an energy storage bill.

New York is set to join the ranks of a small but growing number of pioneering states that are setting targets for energy storage as wind, solar and other renewable energies supply increasing amounts of power to their electric grids.

          Trump’s ‘Energy Dominance’ Push Ignores Some Important Realities    
Market forces are calling the shots on fossil and renewable energies, analysts say, and the risks as other countries rein in carbon emissions can’t be ignored.

Mainstream experts in energy policy and finance reacted skeptically to the White House's carefully orchestrated energy policy hootenanny this week, as President Donald Trump and his Cabinet declared what he called "a golden age of American energy dominance."

Several analysts said the phrase betrayed an insubstantial and simplistic way of looking at the complex issues of energy markets, technology trends, climate risks and regulatory trade-offs that make up the nation's energy policy landscape.

          Ricominciamo Parte II   
Il letargo estivo e' finito e si ricomincia al galoppo forzato. Forza che c'ho un fracco e mezzo di robbbba da sputtanare.

Cominciamo con Settembre, va..

INTO THE WOODS (09.09.10)
Ultima passeggiata nel bosco, stavolta dall'ultimissima fila. Senza lamentarci perche' a) si vede benissimo anzi meglio che dalla seconda fila, e b) non piove a dirotto.
Tutti bravi, tutti belli. (tranne la Dalli che e' pessima e dovrebbe tornare in Australia al piu' presto possibile..)
Salutiamo finalmente Hannah che ci spupazza un po', ci dice sempre troppo della sua vita privata (le ho chiesto come stava il fidanzato, mi ha risposto che si sono lasciati e il perche' e il per come e di chi era la colpa e delle magagne sotterranee del loro rapporto. Really? REALLY?! Non poteva solo dire 'bene, grazie', come tutte le persone normali? Tanto mica e' amico mio, e non l'avrei certo letto su OK Magazine, perche' mi ha dovuto imbastire sto ambaradan?), racconta delle lusinghe del Maestro Sondheim (che pare le abbia detto 'Sei perfetta, non cambiare niente della tua Strega'..) e sfolgora di bellezza e dorkaggine allo stesso tempo. Bless.

THE RAILWAY CHILDREN (10.09.10)
Andiamo tutti a vedere questa simil panto giusto per dire 'io c'ero'.
Piattaforma del fu Eurostar a Waterloo trasformata nella sperduta campagna inglese. La ricca famigliola che sembra uscita da Mary Poppins cade in disgrazia causa capofamiglia accusato di spionaggio (come no, a chi non capita?), e si trasferisce momentaneamente in culandia per risparimare qualche soldo (ma con la governante, perche' non sia mai che la signora Banks o whatshername si tiri su le maniche e actually lavi o cucini..poveri si, ma con dignita', eccheddiamine!) e i tre ragazzini si accozzano alla locale stazione ferroviaria, scassando la minchia a destra e a manca e combinando casini a mazzi.
Il gran clamore suscitato dall' ZOMG C'E' UNA VERA LOCOMOTIVA IN SCENA e' abbastanza ingiustificato quando sei nel mezzo di una platform a Waterloo, in verita'..
Fa piu' impressione quando il treno immaginario arriva di corsa senza rallentare e l'illusione viene creata con un semplice audio assordante e un carrello spargifumo che corre lungo la piattaforma. Il treno non esiste, ma per te e' passata una locomotiva enorme di gran carriera e giureresti di averla vista davvero.

A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE (Matinee, 17.09.10)
Prima tappa nella ridente Bolton (se fa' pe' di'..) per vedere Boo.
Madoh.
Che botta allo stomaco a digiuno. Suckerpunch dritto al plesso solare. Che brutta roba. Cioe' splendido, ma terribile.
A rendere tutto ancora piu' difficile c'e' il fatto che Boo e' di una bellezza sconvolgente, non l'ho mai vista piu' bella...e Kieran fa Stanley quasi umano, quasi lo capisci, quasi gli vuoi bene..ed e' so fucking WRONG poi vedergli fare quello che fa e dover sopportare la scena dello stupro (quasi under played, a dir la verita', poteva andare peggio..)
E poi Blanche da di matto e viene portata via, e Clare ha il suo giacchino "blu Della Robbia" e i capelli sciolti in una marea di onde e riccioli ginger e va via con la sua solita grazia innata e il suo passo lieve.
E a me si spezza il cuore in duemila pezzetti.
La faccia che fa quando ci vede e gli abbracci e le strizzate che ci da valgono sempre la pena.
I genitori di Kieran erano molto impressed dal fatto stesso che fossimo venute apposta a vedere lo show. Psh, roba di ordinaria amministrazione per noi.
Ma poi anche sti cazzi dello show, diciamocelo. Io sono venuta per farmi stritolare dalla mia bellissima Boo, e basta. E se il prezzo da pagare e' rimanere incastrata a parlare per dieci minuti con Kieran delle differenze tra questa produzione e quella della Donmar, che ben venga.
E mentre stiamo li' che chiacchieriamo, e ci facciamo i cazzi suoi e lei si fa i nostri, e le dico di mangiare perche' e' sempre magra (ma non come prima, sta meglio ora..) e le tiro su il bavero della giacca perche' tira un vento disumano, la Moglie le butta li' che stiamo aspettando di sapere se l'hanno promossa a manager e se le danno il suo own negozio.
Boo si spertica in scongiuri e macumbe e incrocia l'incrociabile, ci salutiamo ventimila volte parlandoci sopra l'un l'altra come ogni volta. Facciamo in tempo ad arrivare al Costa che la Moglie riceve l'agognata news e viene ufficialmente promossa.
Va senza dire che siamo tornate al teatro ad intercettare Boo al ritorno dalla pausa pranzo per dirglielo. Ah, com'e' ciccia. Non c'e' nessuno ciccio come lei. Era cosi' contenta..
Un altro paio di strizzatine e abbraccioni e via alla volta di Londra, con quel magone dolceamaro post-visita che ci attanaglia quando l'adrenalina smette di pompare in corpo e sei solo tu su un treno Manchester-Londra a piangere nel cappuccino come se avessi detto addio al piu' grande amore della mia vita. (ma moltiplicatelo per due, perche' siamo due deficenti che si innamorano perdutamente della stessa persona)
          E' arrivata l'estate! Ma anche no.. (parte seconda)   
Lo so che non c'e' stata ancora una 'parte prima' di questo post, ma arrivera'.
Se e quando mi va di scriverla, ma arrivera'.
Non pretenderete mica che vada in ordine.
Troppo convenzionale.
Come direbbe il Dottor Sheldon Cooper, "What's life without whimsy?".

Nel frattempo, ecco la 'parte seconda':

La cara Sally, dall'Australia con furore ma ora vive in Galles, ci viene a tenere il cane affinche' le vostre eroine (sarebbimo io e la Moglie) possano andare in meritata vacanza.
Mi pare giusto ricambiare il favorone con uno show aggratis, oh yeah.

HAIR (20.05.10, matinee)
Felix, il mio cinesino preferito, ci fa beccare dei biglietti gratis per Hair, e noi ci fiondiamo.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHQQQQQUUuuuaaaanto me piace sto show. Si Si. Me lo rivedrebbi a iosa. Tra l'altro ci sono quattro o cinque canzoni di una bellezza disumana, anche semplicemente fuori contesto dal musical.
E mi scende sempre una lacrimuccia alla fine, devo ammettere...
Ci siamo fatte la solita ballata finale tutti sul palco, foto con Allison (mi sono ricordata la macchinetta, stavolta..) e Sally ha apprezzato. Yay.


(LOL, che manica de scalmanati..leeeeeeet the sun shine iiiiiiin..)



<3

Cena da Viet, gelato da Amorino, passeggiata al sole (VENTISETTE GRADI OMG) e ci viene una voglia improvvisa di morti alle barricate e prostitute tisiche.

LES MISERABLES (20.05.10)
Sally non l'ha mai visto, e' ora che perda la sua Les Miz virginity. Mannaggia che Thaxton non c'era, al suo posto tale Mark Dugdale, che non faceva schifo ma cosi' pischello e sbarazzino, non ci credi nemmeno da lontano che qualcuno lo possa seguire fino alla morte tentando una rivoluzione sociale..
Sally e' rimasta di sasso, e tanto basta.
Zio Martin quasi zompettava quando e' uscito, e' sempre tanto caruccio, dio lo benedica..Sfigato da morire, pero' eh? Si e' lasciato anche con la tipa che lavorava a Wicked..maccheddiamine..Adesso lo iscrivo a sua insaputa su Match.com.
Poi e' corso via perche' avevano West End Eurovision, a cui noi, di nuovo, non siamo andate. Si lo so, non e' da perdere e tutto quello che volete, ma lo show comincia alle 23 e finisce alle 2, a torna' alle 4 del mattino a casa, con le scarpe in mano come una ragazza dell'Essex qualunque, dai..
Non c'ho piu' il fisico.

Quindi per il mio compleanno ce ne partiamo per Bournemouth, dove procediamo a rosolare al sole e ad abboffarci di fish & chips per 3 giorni. Alloggiando in un albergo a tema cioccolato, dove tra una tavoletta intera sul comodino, i marshmallows al cioccolato al checkin, i panckaes al cioccolato la mattina e i Martini al cioccolato al bar, e' un miracolo che non ci sia venuta una scagazza micidiale.
Invece manco pe' gnente.

Faccio in tempo a tornare che si ricomincia:

ALL MY SONS (24.05.10)
Arthur Miller
+ David Suchet (l'ispettore Poirot!! IDOLO)
+ Zoe Wanamaker (CASSANDRA! Il WhoVerse si stringe!)
= AWESOME.
Ah, quanto me piacciono sti drammoni familiari impaccati di segreti micidiali e sorrisi fasulli. Altro che Wysteria Lane, tsk.
Ci siamo spellati le mani a forza di applaudire. Awesome, awesome, awesome.

E ora, un po' di zozzerie televisive! SIGLA! (non vi lamentate, ci voglio mettere una sigla e ce la metto, va bene? Anzi, vi diro' di piu'! LA SIGLA DI BEVERLY HILLS 90210!! TIE'! SIGLAAAAAA!!!)



Prima di tutto, finiamo sta tarantella delle Dorothy che e' diventata pesante:



Ci lasciano Steph (gia' acclamata come la prossima Elphaba..hahahahah, no.) e subito dopo Lauren (meglio cosi', ha un appuntamento col destino sta ragazza, troooooppo brava per essere sprecata in una nefandezza come il Wizard of Oz..), Sophie e Danielle al finalone.
Ora, Sophie e' tanto bellina ed e' rossa ed e' vagamente hot, ma..no. Seriously, no. Non sa recitare, vocalmente e' buona ma non consistente e all in all non e' affatto impressive.
Danielle FTW. Lo dicevo io, al solito, dalla prima puntata. Non sbaglio mai su ste cose.
Non mi aspetto di vedere Wizard prima dell'anno prossimo, anche perche' e' di una noia bestiale, a meno che non ci invitano o che la sua insegnante di recitazione Helen ci faccia avere biglietti aggratis, anche solo in memoria delle gelide mattine che abbiamo passato a giocare a Uno sui gradini dell'Apollo Vic dayqueuando per Wicked..

Poi.

Avrete notato anche voi una tizia grassa col nasone che canta in Glee.
No, non Lea Michele, piu' vecchia.
No, NON BARBRA!
Parlo di una che si spaccia per Idina Menzel.
Be', non e' lei. E' la tizia che ha INGOIATO Idina Menzel.
Non c'e' altra spiegazione.
Altrimenti devo accettare che Addominali D'Acciaio sia diventata la mamma di Dumbo, e non lo posso accettare. Nun ze po'.
Ma pensa te, non poteva adottare qualche sfortunato pargolo nel mondo, come fanno tutti? C'era bisogno di figliare? Swirl (o The Artist Formerly Known As Walker Diggs) gli ha fatto un bel regalo, c'ha a mala pena sei mesi e gia' anni di terapia assicurata..)
Dall'altra parte abbiamo invece Cheno, che non vuole incrociare Idina manco per sbaglio sul set. Ah. Che bei momenti. (also, la ragazza sta sempre male, so' piu' gli show che non fa che quelli che fa..sono seriamente preoccupata..)
E dall'altra parte ancora c'e' Neil Patrick Harris che AWESOME qualunque cosa faccia, soprattutto se canta..soprattutto se lo dirige Joss Whedon.

Insomma, va a finire che 'sto Glee lo finisco a guardare sempre. Che nervi.

Nel frattempo finali di stagione come se piovesse. Bones (meh), 30 Rock (MEGALOL), How I met your mother (eheh), The Big Bang Theory (lulz), NCIS (whut??), Modern Family (OMG I<3U ALL!!) e Legend of the Seeker (oh god, non puo' essere la fine, non puo' essere..*piange*).

Ah, e Lost.
Be', non avete amato/odiato anche voi questo show? Non avete amato/odiato per 6 anni questi personaggi insopportabili su quest'isolaccia maledetta?
Come non amarlo/odiarlo fino alla fine.
Ho soprattutto apprezzato quando la Tartaruga Magica e' uscita dall'acqua al grido di THIS IS SPARTAAAAA e ha dato fuoco a una scureggia di Hurley, radendo al suolo l'intera iso..come dite? Non e' successo questo nel finale di Lost?
No no, e' successo, fidatevi.
E' molto meglio la Tartaruga Magica che quello che e' successo veramente.
Date retta a 'na fessa.
L'unica cosa che voglio ricordare sono Daniel e Charlottina, e Juliet e il suo James. Tutto qui. E vabbe', anche un po' Jack & Kate, ma giusto perche' Evi is SO MUCH LOVE e omg. *piange sommessamente*

Vi lasciamo dunque con l'ultimo Untangled e la canzone piu' epic del mondo, eseguita dai Previously On Lost (lol)



(questa canzone e' cramazing, OMG..)


PS: Mazz ha lasciato Rock You, causa pargolo. E' la fine di un'era.
             
E dopo un tartassamento del box office del Sadler's Wells a livelli di stalkeraggio spinto (secondo me? Un'altra telefonata e chiamavano la polizia..), entriamo in possesso di due biglietti per andare a vedere sta stronzata lo show di Boo al Lilian Baylis Studio. (da qui in poi la Rossa verra' chiamata Boo, perche' ho il terrore che si googli/googli lo show e legga qui facendo due piu' due e magari va pure sul traduttore instantaneo e capisce che sono io, perche' figurati! Non sa leggere le proprie email ma il traduttore di Google lo trova sicuro, morammazzata.)

LOST MUSICALS: PARIS (25.04.10)

E' quindi giunta l'ora di introdurvi alle 6 Fasi di Boo.
Come i 5 fasi del dolore, Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression & Acceptance (DABDA, o come dice Sheridan in Two Pints, DABDAA!!, minuto 8:40), anche noi abbiamo le 6 fasi attraverso le quali digeriamo l'esperienza Boo.

Vi presentiamo dunque ENPABD!
ESALTAZIONE: Si comincia con una scarica di adrenalina dritta al sistema nervoso. YAY, Boo e' in uno show! YAY l'abbiamo saputo in tempo! YAY abbiamo i biglietti e siamo libere entrambe quel giorno e YAY DOPPIO i biglietti costano poco, e OMG YAY e' raggiungibile via mezzi invece di essere in Culandia!
NERVOSISMO: mado' sono 4 mesi che non la vedo, 4 mesi che non le parlo, mado' che mi metto? Che tempo fara'? Che le diciamo? Cosa NON le diciamo? Dove la aspettiamo? La aspettiamo? Si si, la aspettiamo..vero?
PANICO: OMG COSA CAZZO MI METTO NON HO NIENTE DA METTERMI DI DECENTE *ravana forsennatamente nell'armadio* BASTA MI COMPRO UN VESTITO APPOSTA *controlla le previsioni* MA PORCA MERDA DUE SETTIMANE DI SOLE, E STA DOMENICA PIOVE?!? *notte insonne* OMG COSA LE DICO NON DICO MAI NIENTE DI INTERESSANTE, NON HO MAI DETTO NIENTE DI INTERESSANTE IN VITA MIA E OMG WHAT IF CROLLA IL TEATRO COLPITO DA UN METEORITE? E SE ATTACCANO I DINOSAURI? E SE CASCO E MI ROMPO LA TESTA SUL SELCIATO? E SE SCAPPA UN ORSO DALLO ZOO E LA MANGIA? O SE MI DA UN CAZZOTTO FORTE PERCHE' HO LO SMALTO CHE NON SI ABBINA AL VESTITO SANTAMADONNA MEGLIO SE MI UCCIDO ADESSO.
ADORAZIONE: poi sei li' che guardi on stage e tutto e' ok, tutto e' perfetto, lei e' solare, brilla sotto i riflettori, i capelli sono di un rosso che a volte dimentichi e quando lo vedi dici 'oh, come ho potuto scordare!' e lei sorride e fa le facce buffe ed e' pallida come una rosa e non ha nemmeno un gioiello addosso, e naviga un po' nel suo little black dress (che tu conosci cosi' bene perche' e' lo stesso che aveva nel poster di SiC e una volta lo riempiva mentre adesso, adesso e' un fringuellino col giro vita inesistente) e la Moglie mi stringe forte la mano perche' madonnasanta e' una dea.
BLATERAMENTO: fase piuttosto tricky. E' quando hai messo in gioco le carte, hai fatto tutto quello che potevi, hai studiato e ripassato, e ormai puoi solo pregare in tutte le lingue che conosci, e qualcuna che ti sei appena inventato, che vada tutto bene e il deodorante regga (praticamente l'equivalente del mettersi seduti davanti alla commissione dell'esame di maturita').
E' l'attimo in cui lei esce pensando ai fatti suoi e ti vede. Cioe' prima ti vede, poi ci vogliono quei bei 5/6 secondi prima che il suo cervellino computi che siamo noi. C'e' quell'attimo di OMG incredulo (meno di quando era in Narnia devo dire, quello deve averla sconvolta di brutto..stavolta era piu' contenta-sorpresa, che WTF-sorpresa..), poi gli abbracci (dio quanto e' dimagrita, le passo le braccia attorno due volte) e la prima cosa che mi dice e' che le piace la mia maglia (SCORE!) e la Moglie che ha i capelli piu' corti del solito.
Poi parliamo di duemila cose allo stesso tempo, cambiamo discorso alla velocita' della luce e io la fisso perche' argh e' bellissima, ha gli occhi truccati e le sopracciglia disegnate leggere e i capelli vengono giu' in onde scintillanti e ha un maglioncino che si abbottona di traverso e OMG OMG OMG le vedo il reggiseno tra un bottone e l'altro e intanto lei chiede come stai, come va la vita, siete ancora insieme che bello (insicurezze da figlia di divorziati, eh?), che mi racconti, le dico che e' dimagrita e lei mi chiede 'ma da sembrare malata?' e io vorrei dire si cazzo, ma non lo dico, mento e dico no.
Fa la spritosa, si fa tutto un monologo su come non voglia fare piu' musicals ma dramas, ma e' difficile entrare nel giro e non vuole accontentarsi e fare show che non le piacciono perche' quello passa il convento e non che abbia mai dovuto fare questa scelta (e io che penso: chi stai cercando di convincere?), fa spallucce, sembra un pochino meno giu' dell'ultima volta, almeno sorride, almeno si prende in giro, e' tutto ancora una merda ma forse c'e' speranza..
E alla fine fa 'ma fatevi dare un altro abbraccio!', e ci tocchiamo gli stomaci mentre mi strizza forte e le sento tutte le costole, e prenditi cura di te e mandaci due righe..
Se ne va dalla mamma che la aspetta (una grassona butterata che con la figlia avra' in comune si e no 2.5 cromosomi)
DEPRESSIONE: fase finale. E' quella che comincia l'attimo in cui le giriamo le spalle e finisce piu' o meno quando la incontriamo la volta dopo. E' un continuo ruminare, rivivere la scena nella tua testa, e rimuginare sulle parole, sulla sintassi, sul detto e non detto e sull'accenato e sul letto tra le righe, i toni, le espressioni facciali, e il "cosa avra' voluto dire con.." e l'immaginare finali alternativi, e what ifs e film interi basati su un'alzata di sopracciglia (perfettamente disegnata).
Non ti lascia dormire, ti fa piangere senza preavviso, ti blocca pensieri e azioni. E' lo spettro dell'incertezza che si riassume in un'unica domanda: quando ti rivedro'?

Lo show..boh.
Ce l'hanno infilata a forza, Anne Reid e' una sua amica (l'abbiamo vista in Dimetos, era la governante..) e l'ha fatta entrare nel progetto. Non la pagano nemmeno.
Lo show e' una roba dimenticata di Cole Porter, una nefandezza anni '30 tipo Drowsy Chaperone con tanto di accenti offensivi, gag inutili e numeri a dir poco imbarazzanti, ma senza il Man in Chair a guidarti per mano.
Il pubblico in sala sembrava il reparto geriatria del Fatebenefratelli, inclusi capitomboli vari di vecchietti che mancano il gradino col bastone e rovinano al suolo rischiando un femore. Conseguentemente, l'intero posto puzza di vecchio.
Ah, e prima dell'inizio abbiamo avuto un dibattito sui biglietti con la mamma di Piper Perabo in Imagine Me & You, cosi', tanto per.

Adesso tocca aspettare che Paoletto lo Speziale (mado'..) torni dalla Florida perche' gli faccio come minimo una statua. Se non era per lui non avremmo mai saputo un cazzo.

          Quotes of the Week   

"Globalisation can't be just about outsourcing and low wages"   [Jeff Immelt, Chief Executive Officer General Electric, quoted in Financial Review, 26 June 2017]

“In an appearance at the University of Chicago on Monday, former President Barack Obama unloaded a relentless barrage of complete sentences in what was widely seen as a brutal attack on his successor, Donald Trump.” [Andy Borowitz writing in The New Yorker, 24 April 2017]

“Coal India—a government-back coal company–is reportedly closing 37 of its "unviable" mines in the next year to cut back on losses.
India is primed for an energy revolution. The country's ongoing economic growth has been powered by fossil fuels in the past, making it one of the top five largest energy consumers in the world. But it has also invested heavily in renewables, and the cost of solar power is now cheaper than ever. In some instances, villages in India have avoided coal-powered electricity altogether, and "leapfrogged" straight to solar power.” [ Journalist Ankita Rao writing in Motherboard, 24 June 2017]

          Explore the Global Goals @ Kastellet   

  A little over a week ago I went on quite the adventure together with a friend. It was time for the opening of the exhibit Explore the Global Goals with Global Goals Lab and Quantified Planet. The exhibition is an intersection between art and tech, where we got to explore different projects that were working towards the global goals as well as see some art that interpreted them. It lasts until August 12 and is located at Kastellet in Vaxholm. Kastellet is an old fort which means the art was exhibited inside the room where they kept the gunpowder. It was an AMAZING room and impossible to get a good picture of. But trust me – it was cool  There was a little shop where they sold the solar cell lamp that Olafur Eliasson has worked on! It’s called Little Sun, and it’s a really interesting project where tech meets art! Read more about it here.  There was a lot of stuff to read at the exhibition, and everything was so interesting and/or upsetting. LIKE THIS like wtf.   Elin Engström had made a vest that weighed 8 kg = the amount of fabric we through away in a year per person.  On a […]

We didn't know you could make reservations at Ramiro's. It worked out pretty well because we showed up around 5:30 on a weeknight and there was no line. Weekends there is, however, as our second trip proved. Either way, the Solar de Serrade Alvarinho 2016 they sell is cheap, pairs very well with whatever seafood you choose and is really refreshing after the heat of the day. The clams in garlic were my favorite seafood option we tried, though the stuffed crab was quite delicious as well. Another great, well-priced Lisboa restaurant with good wine selection is Carmo Restaurant & Bar. Their spicy garlic shrimp was better than Ramiro's version. Best I've ever had. We enjoyed a very nice wine there as well, Adegamae Dory Touriga Nacional 2014, again well-priced and a good representation of local wine. If you have a taste for it, there is shop just a short walk from pink street that sells one thing and one thing only: one of the world's greatest chocolate cakes. Landeau is the name. It is decadent and wonderful. Hope your trip is wonderful. We cannot wait to get back to Portugal again!

          FLASHBACK: Chelyabinsk meteorite may have had previous collision or near-miss with other parts of solar system   
The meteor that starred in a thousand and one tweets as it shot across the Siberian sky last February apparently had a rough history. The Chelyabinsk meteor, estimated to have been 55-65 feet in diameter before breaking up, may have had previous fiery encounters — either colliding into another body in the solar system or traveling too close to the Sun — before its spectacular crash to Earth, according to analysis of fragments from its crust and interior. Hints of Heat Presenting the new findings at a geochemical conference today in Florence, Italy, Victor Sharygin of Novosibirsk's Institute of Geology and Mineralogy said a detailed mineral analysis of fragments of the meteorite revealed some anomalies suggesting the rock had previously been melted. Dividing the pieces into different gradations of color and structure, the team identified a concentration of dark fragments composed of fine-grained material formed by extremely intense melting. The dark fragments were distinct from the meteorite's fusion crust, a thin layer that melts and then solidifies as the rock travels through Earth's atmosphere. The dark fragments' structure included what the team described as "spherical bubbles," either encrusted with oxide, silicate and metal or filled with metal and sulfide.

          How to beat Vaporeon in Pokemon Go?   




How to beat Vaporeon in Pokemon Go?

Vaporeon is both common and powerful making him one of the popular Gym Battle Pokemon's.  Many believe that Vaporeon is overpowered especially given how common Eevee is.  This is likely due to speed being less of a parameter in Pokemon Go!  This leads Pokemon like Vaporeon who have a large amount of hit points and have strong attacks to take over quickly.

That said no Pokemon is unbeatable and the trick with beating powerful Pokemon is to find the right Type against them.

so with that said!

HOW TO BEAT VAPOREON!
BEST POKEMON VS VAPOREON!

The trick with Vaporeon and all WATER type pokemon is to use a GRASS Pokemon.  GRASS  Pokemon have a defensive and offensive advantage against water Pokemon making them by far the best to take them on. In previous games WATER attacks were cut in half when used against a GRASS Pokemon and the effect of GRASS  Attacks were DOUBLED!!!

Which GRASS  Pokemon to use?

You want to know why Vaporeon is sitting on top of so many gyms look no further than how rare and unpopular the GRASS  Pokemon.   Which one do you build?  Any one you can.  I have seen a variety of Water Pokemon doing very well in Pokemon Go and I think it has to do with how few built up Grass Pokemon there are.



Make sure you pick a Grass Pokemon that also has GRASS Attacks.  This gives the Pokemon advantages in both attacking and defending.   This will make it extremely competitive against Vaporeon.


Parasect with Solar Beam


My favorite and efficient killer of Vaporeon is Parasect.  Parasect is a GRASS / BUG hybrid and one of his combo moves if you get it is Solar Beam.  Solar Beam packs a whooping 120 damage in Grass type.  A CP 800 can take out a C) 1500 Vaporeon provided it has solar beam.
I will also mention that a Parasect with all bug moves is still worth keeping as it can take down another common defender Exeggcutor.

The best part of Parasect is that it is an evolution of Paras that is a common Pokemon so evolving a Parasect or even multiple Parasect's is not too hard.

My only warning is that Parasect has many weakness particularly to flying Pokemon so leaving him as a gym defender himself may not be the idea.  Though he could likely surprise many a trainer who attacks with a Vaporeon.



Electric Pokemon like Jolteon!
Another good way to take down Vaporeon is with evolutionary cousin Jolteon.  Jolteon's ELECTRIC attacks are super effective against WATER Pokemon.  That is right ELECTRIC attacks work well against WATER pokemon.  They just don't get the defensive bonus that the GRASS pokemon have.
Add in the other ELECTRIC type of Pokemon in here for good measure like fan favorite Pikachu / Raichu.

O Έλληνoϊταλός κροίσος που ήταν άστεγος και απέκτησε περιουσία πάνω από 3 δισ. δολάρια

Η μεγαλύτερη πολυτέλεια που δεν στερεί από τον εαυτό του είναι το προσωπικό του τζετ

Ένας από τους πλουσιότερους ανθρώπους του κόσμου είναι ο αυτοδημιούργητος επιχειρηματίας Τζον Πολ Ντεχόρια, ο οποίο πρόσφατα βρέθηκε στην Αθήνα ως καλεσμένος τόσο για να στηρίξει την φίρμα Paul Mitchell, της οποία είναι ιδρυτής όσο και για να συμμετάσχει σε εκδήλωση της Ελληνικής Πρωτοβουλίας.
Ο Ντεχόρια συγκαταλέγεται στη λίστα του περιοδικού Forbes ως ένας από τους πλουσιότερους ανθρώπους στην Αμερική, με περιουσία που αγγίζει τα 3,1 δισ. δολάρια. Μεγάλο μέρος των ετήσιων εσόδων του αντλεί από την εταιρεία του, «John Paul Mitchell Systems», που παρασκευάζει προϊόντα για τον καλλωπισμό των μαλλιών. Μάλιστα πριν χτίσει την αυτοκρατορία του, ήταν άστεγος και ζούσε στο αυτοκίνητο του.
Ο Τζον Πολ Ντετζόρια γεννήθηκε στις 13 Απριλίου του 1944 στο Λος Άντζελες. Οι γονείς του δισεκατομμυριούχου σήμερα επιχειρηματία ήταν μετανάστες. Η μητέρα του ήταν Ελληνίδα και ο πατέρας του Ιταλός.
Ο δρόμος του στην επιτυχία δεν ήταν στρωμένος με ροδοπέταλα. Οι γονείς του χώρισαν όταν ήταν πολύ μικρός, μόλις 2 ετών. 9 ετών ξεκίνησε να πουλά χριστουγεννιάτικες κάρτες και εφημερίδες μαζί με τον αδερφό του για να στηρίξουν οικονομικά την οικογένεια. Η μητέρα τους δεν μπορούσε να αναθρέψει μόνη της τα δύο αγόρια και αναγκάστηκαν να τα δώσει σε ανάδοχη οικογένεια.
Ήταν μέλος μια συμμορίας στο ανατολικό Λος Άντζελες, την οποία όμως εγκατέλειψε όταν ένας μαθηματικός του είπε πως δεν θα πετύχει σε τίποτα στη ζωή του. Αποφοίτησε το 1962 και μπήκε στο Ναυτικό. Στο ναυτικό έμεινε για 2 χρόνια και μετά έκανε διάφορες δουλειές από καθαριστής μέχρι πωλητής. Μάλιστα, έμεινε άστεγος για ένα διάστημα και αναγκάστηκε να συλλέγει μπουκάλια για να επιβιώσει.
Στον χώρο της φροντίδας μαλλιών μπήκε ως εργαζόμενος στα Εργαστήρια της Redken. Λίγο πριν ξεκινήσει την εταιρία του, μένει για δεύτερη φορά άστεγος. Αναγκάζεται να μένει στο αυτοκίνητο του μετά τον χωρισμό του με την σύζυγό του. Το 1980 δημιούργησε την εταιρία John Paul Mitchell Systems μαζί με τον κομμωτή Paul Mitchell και ένα δάνειο 700 δολαρίων. Το όνειρο των δύο φίλων ήταν να δημιουργήσουν ένα επαναστατικό σύστημα μαλλιών με τρία προϊόντα (Σαμπουάν 1, Σαμπουάν 2 και Κοντίσιονερ). Το όνειρό τους έγινε πραγματικότητα και η εταιρία παράγει πάνω από 100 προιόντα και είδη κομμωτικής σε πάνω από 80 χώρες παγκοσμίως
Το 1989 ο Paul Mitchell πέθανε και την θέση του ως συνιδιοκτήτης έλαβε ο γιος του Άνγκους.
Συμμετέχει σε διάφορες επιχειρηματικές κινήσεις όπως η εταιρία Patrón Spirits, την οποία ίδρυσε το 1989 και πλέον πουλά πάνω από 2 εκατομμύρια κιβώτια τεκίλα τον χρόνο.
Ήταν από τα ιδρυτικά μέλη της αλυσίδας νυχτερινών μαγαζιών House of Blues, τα οποία πωλήθηκαν προς 350 εκατομμύρια δολάρια το 2006.
Έχει μερίσματα στις εταιρίες Pyrat Rum, Ultimat Vodka, Solar Utility, Sun King Solar, Touchstone Natural Gas, Three Star Energy, Diamond Audio, μια αντιπροσωπία Harley Davidson dealership, μια εταιρία διαμαντιών (DeJoria), και την εταιρία κινητής τεχνολογίας ROK AMERICAS, την John Paul Pet, η οποία περιποιείται ζώα και άλλες.
Η μεγαλύτερη πολυτέλεια που δεν στερεί από τον εαυτό του είναι το προσωπικό του τζετ.
Το φιλανθρωπικό και περιβαλλοντικό του έργο είναι σημαντικό. Μαζί με τον Μπραντ Πιτ, τον Ριτσαρντ Μπρανσον και τον Νέλσον Μαντέλα, είναι ιδρυτής του «Mineseeker», ενό ςμη κερδοσκοπικού οργανισμού που αναζητεί λύσεις για το παγκόσμιο πρόβλημα των ναρκών.

          The first Cassini to explore Saturn was a person    

Space probe preparing to crash into ringed planet was named for an astronomical pioneer

Context
Saturn

TWO CASSINIS  The Cassini spacecraft has become famous for its stunning views of Saturn, including this image of the unlit side of the rings taken in 2012. But what do we know about the man Cassini was named for?

As the Cassini spacecraft plunges toward its death on Saturn, the world’s knowledge of the famous ringed planet continues to accumulate. Thanks to years of observations by the versatile probe, astronomers now know Saturn as intimately as macaroni knows cheese. But still hardly anyone outside the world of astronomy knows anything about Cassini — and I don’t mean the spacecraft, but the guy it was named for.

Gian Domenico Cassini was an Italian astronomer, born in Perinaldo in 1625, around the time that Galileo was battling the church over Copernicus’ revelation that the Earth orbits the sun. Cassini was attracted to poetry but was also good at math. He got his start in science via astrology, which back then was not considered quite as completely idiotic as it is today. In fact, astronomy itself was often supported by wealthy people in order to get better astrological forecasts. One such wealthy Italian, an amateur astronomer, was impressed with a pamphlet on astrology that Cassini had written; it earned him an invitation to work at the amateur’s observatory, near Bologna.

From the leading scientists at Bologna, Cassini learned the importance of using high-quality instruments to make the most precise measurements possible. His talents were soon recognized; by 1650 Cassini’s accomplishments and reputation earned him the chair in astronomy at the university in Bologna. He continued his research during the 1650s, taking a particular interest in comets.

Cassini was an old-school conservative kind of scientist, not even inclined to take Galileo’s side on the Earth-orbiting-the-sun issue. Cassini preferred Tycho Brahe’s position that the other planets orbited the sun, but the sun then orbited the Earth. (Later Cassini accepted the Copernican sun-centered solar system, but only half-heartedly.) Cassini also was no fan of Newton’s law of gravity.

Cassini’s work as an eminent Italian scientist was not limited to astronomy. Called on to referee a political dispute over the course of a river, he mastered hydraulics. Later he spent some time studying insects and experimenting on blood transfusions. None of that was as fun as astronomy, though, so he returned to the stars often. In addition to comets, he specialized in the sun and especially solar eclipses. Some of his best work resulted from the use of a meridian — a large sundial-like device for recording solar movements — that he designed and had installed on the top of a church steeple.

Cassini was also clever enough to know the value of cultivating useful friendships. In particular, he was on good terms with some skillful Roman lens makers who provided him with especially powerful telescopes. With such instruments Cassini was able to calculate the rotation rates of Jupiter and Mars accurately. (He gave Venus a shot, but it was harder.)

Even more impressively, Cassini accomplished a goal that had eluded Galileo by accurately describing the motions of the moons of Jupiter. It was Cassini’s work on Jupiter’s moons that allowed the Danish astronomer Olaus Rømer to measure the speed of light, establishing that light did not transit space instantaneously, as many (including Cassini) had believed.

Even before Rømer’s results, Cassini’s accomplishments made him famous enough to get offered a job in Paris. That job was actually a prime position with the new French Academy of Sciences, whose founders recruited savants from all over Europe to enhance the new academy’s prestige. So in 1669 Cassini moved to Paris. He didn’t fit in all that well; his French was sketchy and his authoritarian approach to things in general ticked some people off. But he eventually managed to develop a world-class astronomical observation program. He became a French citizen in 1673 and married the daughter of a French official wealthy enough to offer as part of the dowry a nice castle for a summer home. Cassini then forgot about his original plan to return to Italy and spent the rest of his life in France.

Story continues after image

Had his astronomical achievements ended with his departure from Italy, Cassini would have been an odd choice for the name of a spacecraft sent to study Saturn. But besides his administrative role at the French academy’s observatory, Cassini continued his own studies. And, having mastered Jupiter, he naturally moved on to Saturn. In 1671 he discovered Saturn’s moon Iapetus and found another, Rhea, the next year. Much later he detected the moons Tethys and Dione. He also thoroughly examined the disk around Saturn and discerned that it was not just one ring. He identified two prominent rings separated by a small gap — the thin black band between the two is now known as Cassini’s division. Cassini even guessed, more or less correctly, that the rings are made of small particles all orbiting Saturn in concert.

And so Cassini knew Saturn as intimately as anyone from his era, establishing sufficient Saturnian credentials to earn the honor of having a space probe named for him. Cassini the probe has now seen Saturn much more clearly than Cassini the man. But soon Cassini the probe will die and go blind; Cassini the man first went blind, two years before he died, in 1712.

          Einstein’s latest anniversary marks the birth of modern cosmology    

1917 paper introduced infamous cosmological constant in equation describing gravity

Context
Andromeda galaxy

Edwin Hubble’s observations of stars in the Andromeda galaxy (shown) demonstrated that the universe was vastly bigger than Albert Einstein realized. Nevertheless, Einstein’s paper applying his general theory of relativity, published a century ago, became the foundation for the modern science of cosmology.

First of two parts

Sometimes it seems like every year offers an occasion to celebrate some sort of Einstein anniversary.

In 2015, everybody lauded the 100th anniversary of his general theory of relativity. Last year, scientists celebrated the centennial of his prediction of gravitational waves — by reporting the discovery of gravitational waves. And this year marks the centennial of Einstein’s paper establishing the birth of modern cosmology.

Before Einstein, cosmology was not very modern at all. Most scientists shunned it. It was regarded as a matter for philosophers or possibly theologians. You could do cosmology without even knowing any math.

But Einstein showed how the math of general relativity could be applied to the task of describing the cosmos. His theory offered a way to study cosmology precisely, with a firm physical and mathematical basis. Einstein provided the recipe for transforming cosmology from speculation to a field of scientific study.

“There is little doubt that Einstein’s 1917 paper … set the foundations of modern theoretical cosmology,” Irish physicist Cormac O’Raifeartaigh and colleagues write in a new analysis of that paper. 

Einstein had pondered the implications of his new theory for cosmology even before he had finished it. General relativity was, after all, a theory of space and time — all of it. Einstein’s showed that gravity — the driving force sculpting the cosmic architecture — was simply the distortion of spacetime geometry generated by the presence of mass and energy. (He constructed an equation to show how spacetime geometry, on the left side of the equation, was determined by the density of mass-energy, the right side.) Since spacetime and mass-energy account for basically everything, the entire cosmos ought to behave as general relativity’s equation required.

Newton’s law of gravity had posed problems in that regard. If every mass attracted every other mass, as Newton had proclaimed, then all the matter in the universe ought to have just collapsed itself into one big blob. Newton suggested that the universe was infinite, filled with matter, so that attraction inward was balanced by the attraction of matter farther out. Nobody really bought that explanation, though. For one thing, it required a really precise arrangement: One star out of place, and the balance of attractions disappears and the universe collapses. It also required an infinity of stars, making it impossible to explain why it’s dark at night. (There would be a star out there along every line of sight at all times.)

Einstein hoped his theory of gravity would resolve the cosmic paradoxes of Newtonian gravity. So in early 1917, less than a year after his complete paper on the general theory was published, he delivered a short paper to the Prussian Academy of Sciences outlining the implications of his theory for cosmology.

In that paper, titled “Cosmological Considerations in the General Theory of Relativity,” he started by noting the problems posed by using Newton’s gravity to describe the universe. Einstein showed that Newton’s gravity would require a finite island of stars sitting in an infinite space. But over time such a collection of stars would evaporate. That problem could be avoided, though, if the universe turned out not to be infinite. Instead, Einstein said, everything would be fine if the universe is finite. Big, sure, but curved in such a way that it closed on itself, like a sphere.

Einstein’s mathematical challenge was to show that such a finite cosmic spacetime would be static and stable. (In those days nobody knew that the universe was expanding.) He assumed that on a large enough scale, the distribution of matter in this universe could be considered uniform. (Einstein said it was like viewing the Earth as a smooth sphere for most purposes, even though its terrain is full of complexities on smaller distance scales.) Matter’s effect on spacetime curvature would therefore be pretty much constant, and the universe’s overall condition would be unchanging.

All this made sense to Einstein because he had a limited view of what was actually going on in the cosmos. Like many scientists in those days, he believed the universe was basically just the Milky Way galaxy. All the known stars moved fairly slowly, consistent with his belief in a spherical cosmos with uniformly distributed mass. Unfortunately, general relativity’s math didn’t work if that was the case — it suggested the universe would not be stable. Einstein realized, though, that his view of the static spherical universe would succeed if he added a term to his original equation.

In fact, there were good reasons to include the term anyway. O’Raifeartaigh and colleagues point out that in his earlier work on general relativity, Einstein remarked in a footnote that his equation technically permitted the inclusion of an additional term. That didn’t seem to matter at the time. But in his cosmology paper, Einstein found that it was just the thing his equation needed to describe the universe properly (as Einstein then supposed the universe to be). So he added that factor, designated by the Greek letter lambda, to the left-hand side of his basic general relativity equation.

“That term is necessary only for the purpose of making possible a quasi-static distribution of matter, as required by the fact of the small velocities of the stars,” Einstein wrote in his 1917 paper. As long as the magnitude of this new term on the geometry side of the equation was small enough, it would not alter the theory’s predictions for planetary motions in the solar system.

Einstein’s 1917 paper demonstrated the mathematical effectiveness of lambda (also called the “cosmological constant”) but did not say much about its physical interpretation. In another paper, published in 1918, he commented that lambda represented a negative mass density — it played “the role of gravitating negative masses which are distributed all over the interstellar space.” Negative mass would counter the attractive gravity and prevent all the matter in Einstein’s spherical finite universe from collapsing.

As everybody now knows, though, there is no danger of collapse, because the universe is not static to begin with, but rather is rapidly expanding. After Edwin Hubble had established such expansion, Einstein abandoned lambda as unnecessary (or at least, set it equal to zero in his equation). Others built on Einstein’s foundation to derive the math needed to make sense of Hubble’s discovery, eventually leading to the modern view of an expanding universe initiated by a Big Bang explosion.

But in the 1990s, astronomers discovered that the universe is not only expanding, it is expanding at an accelerating rate. Such acceleration requires a mysterious driving force, nicknamed “dark energy,” exerting negative pressure in space. Many experts believe Einstein’s cosmological constant, now interpreted as a constant amount of energy with negative pressure infusing all of space, is the dark energy’s true identity.

Einstein might not have been surprised by all of this. He realized that only time would tell whether his lambda would vanish to zero or play a role in the motions of the heavens. As he wrote in 1917 to the Dutch physicist-astronomer Willem de Sitter: “One day, our actual knowledge of the composition of the fixed-star sky, the apparent motions of fixed stars, and the position of spectral lines as a function of distance, will probably have come far enough for us to be able to decide empirically the question of whether or not lambda vanishes.”

          In 20th century, astronomers opened their minds to gazillions of galaxies    

Telescopes in U.S. West revealed vastly larger, expanding universe

Context
Andromeda galaxy

In 1923, Edwin Hubble found variable stars in the Andromeda nebula enabling him to gauge its distance. It turned out to be far from the Milky Way, demonstrating that it and many other nebulae were actually galaxies in their own right.

WASHINGTON — Before astronomers could discover the expansion of the universe, they had to expand their minds.

When the 20th century began, astronomers not only didn’t know the universe was expanding, they didn’t even care.

“Astronomers in the late 19th century and the very start of the 20th century were very little interested in what we would call the broader universe or its history,” says historian of science Robert Smith of the University of Alberta in Canada.

Some astronomers were interested in the structure of the Milky Way galaxy, the vast collection of stars in which the sun, Earth and known planets reside. “But astronomers played next to no part in the debates at the end of the 19th century about the wider nature of the cosmos,” Smith said in a talk January 28 at a meeting of the American Physical Society. In fact, many scientists believed there was no wider cosmos. Majority opinion held that the Milky Way galaxy, more or less, constituted the entire universe. 

“As far as almost all astronomers were concerned, the universe beyond our own limited system of stars was the realm of metaphysics, and working astronomers did not engage in metaphysics,” Smith said.

Astronomers left others to do the wondering.

“The infinite universe beyond our stellar system was territory that professional astronomers really were very happy to leave to mathematicians, physicists, philosophers and some popularizers,” Smith said.

Even among those groups, pre-20th century consensus limited the universe to the Milky Way and its immediate environs. Clues to the contrary were mostly dismissed. Most prominent among those clues was the existence of “spiral nebulae,” fuzzy patches of light clearly distinct from the pointlike stars. Photos of the spiral-shaped blobs suggested that they were solar systems in the making within or around the Milky Way; many people believed the galaxy was home to countless populated planets. Very few people believed that the nebulae were distant replicas of the Milky Way, galaxies in their own right.

In a book published in 1890, for instance, astronomer and respected science popularizer Agnes Clerke wrote that “no competent thinker” believed that nebulae could be galaxies. She retained that view in a later edition published in 1905, Smith said.  

But after around 1905, he said, the modern conception of the cosmos began to emerge. Philanthropic contributions in support of new, large telescopes, particularly in the American West, led to observations that slowly transformed the restricted view of a one-galaxy universe into the current commodious cosmos, with billions and billions (technically, gazillions) of galaxies.

Cepheid surprise

Edwin Hubble's observations of the Andromeda nebula turned up what he thought were exploding stars, which he labeled "N" for "nova." He later realized that the star in the upper right was a Cepheid variable, allowing him to calculate the distance from Earth. Science News-Letter reported Hubble's findings and calculations in 1924.

At Lick Observatory in California, for instance, James Keeler undertook the task of counting the spiral nebulae. At the time, astronomers knew of a few dozen. Keeler found hundreds of thousands.

“So the spiral nebulae are elevated in importance by Keeler,” Smith said.

By 1912, Vesto Slipher, at Lowell Observatory in Arizona, began reporting measurements of the light emanating from the nebulae, determining how far colors were shifted to the red end of the spectrum, a way to measure how fast the nebulae were flying away from the Earth.

“He would actually start arguing that the spiral nebulae were distant galaxies,” Smith said.

By the 1920s, more and more astronomers took the idea of distant galaxies seriously. Finally Edwin Hubble, at the Mount Wilson Observatory in Southern California, provided the deathblow to the one-galaxy universe. In 1923, his observations of the Andromeda nebula turned up a couple of Cepheid variable stars. Because Cepheids varied in brightness on a regular schedule that depended on their intrinsic brightness, they provided surefire clues to Andromeda’s distance from Earth. Andromeda resided 900,000 light-years away, vastly farther than even the most exaggerated estimates of the Milky Way’s diameter.

Hubble’s use of Cepheids depended on the earlier pioneering work of Henrietta Swan Leavitt at the Harvard observatory. “Her discovery of the period-luminosity relationship in Cepheid variable stars is absolutely fundamental in transforming people’s ideas about first, our own galactic system and second, providing the means to demonstrate that galaxies do in fact exist,” Smith said.

By the end of the 1920s Hubble, combining his distance measurements with velocity measurement made by astronomer Milton Humason, had demonstrated that the farther a nebula was from Earth, the faster it appeared to fly away. That relationship formed the observational basis for the expanding universe. Hubble suggested as much in 1929. Others also realized that the new view of the cosmos implied an expanding universe; one, Georges Lemaître, proposed something very much like today’s Big Bang theory of the universe’s origin.

It took a while, though, for the idea of the universe as the expanding aftermath of a big explosion to open everybody’s mind. In 1935, for instance, the astronomer J.S. Plaskett called Lemaître’s ideas “speculation run wild without a shred of evidence.” Even Hubble was not entirely sure of his own discovery. In 1938, Smith pointed out, Hubble assessed the evidence as consistent with a static universe, while acknowledging that expansion could not be ruled out.

Today’s claims that other big bangs may have happened many times, creating a multitude of cosmic spacetime bubbles known as the multiverse, face similar objections. It’s true that the evidence for a multiverse is not conclusive, just as evidence in the 19th century was not conclusive that spiral nebulae were distant galaxies or “island universes” of their own. But given the historical precedent, it would be silly to say that “no competent thinker” would believe in the possibility of multiple universes today.

          Visits to Proxima Centauri’s planet are probably millennia away    

Even alpha particle propulsion is too slow for trip to new world

Context
illustration of the distance to Proxima Centauri

Proxima Centauri, the nearest member of the Alpha Centauri triple star system, is just a little more than 4 light-years away from the sun. With a proposed propulsion scheme using alpha particle decay, travel time to the star's newly discovered planet would be no shorter than 4,000 years.

If you’d like to vacation at the newly found planet orbiting Proxima Centauri, you might want to reconsider. It’s nearby astronomically — a mere 4.2 light-years away — but still too far away for any plausible transportation technology to reach within the current millennium.

In fact, it’s a pretty safe bet the Chicago Cubs will win the World Series before any human steps foot on Earth’s nearest exoplanetary neighbor (known as Proxima b). Unless P. Centaurian aliens arrive soon with a “To Serve Man” cookbook, your chances of visiting Proxima b before you die are about the same as sainthood for Ted Bundy. By the time anybody from here goes there, years will have five digits.   

It took NASA’s New Horizons probe — the fastest spacecraft humans have ever launched — over nine years just to get to Pluto. At its top speed of 16 kilometers per second, New Horizons would need almost 80,000 years to get to Proxima Centauri.

Solar sail propulsion — in which lightweight craft could be accelerated by pressure from sunlight — would be a little be faster, but not by much, taking (by one estimate) 66,000 years to make the Proxima Centauri run.

Novel propulsion schemes have been proposed that could reduce that time substantially. A sail driven by alpha particle recoil, for instance, provides some serious advantages over solar sails, as Wenwu Zhang and colleagues point out in the August issue of Applied Radiation and Isotopes.

Ordinary rocket speed is limited by how fast the combusted fuel can eject exhaust; NASA has investigated a plasma engine design that can attain exhaust speeds of 50 km/s. But that approach requires huge energy input and high voltage, Zhang and colleagues point out (and so would be prohibitively expensive). Alpha particles emitted by radioactive substances, on the other hand, can speed away about 300 times faster. Therefore, Zhang and coauthors assert, “alpha decay particles … may be a potential solution for long-time acceleration in space.”

Usually, of course, a chunk of radioactive matter would emit alpha particles in all directions. So your craft would need a shield on one side to absorb the particles before they got very far. The rest would stream away in the opposite direction, pushing the craft forward (by virtue of the law of conservation of momentum). True, alpha particles are tiny and the effect of their recoil would be small. But it would add up. Shot into space with standard technology (thereby achieving a 16 km/s start-up speed), an alpha recoil spacecraft could eventually reach a speed in the range of 200–300 km/s or so.

It helps to choose the right alpha-emitting material. Uranium-232 would be ideal. It has a long enough half-life (almost 70 years) to last for an extended voyage, but it also decays into daughter nuclei that emit alpha particles more frequently, boosting the recoil effect. (You won’t find any U-232 in uranium mines, though — it would need to be produced in nuclear transmutation factories.)

Assuming a suitably light and thin absorption material, Zhang and colleagues envision an alpha-powered interstellar sail about 24 meters across. They calculate a travel time to Proxima Centauri between about 4,000 and 9,000 years (depending on the ratio of fuel mass to total spacecraft mass). That would easily win the race against a solar sail, but would far exceed most people’s available vacation time. “Interstellar travel definitely asks for even better propulsion technologies,” Zhang and colleagues understate. And surely within 4,000 years somebody will invent a faster technology that could pass the alpha-decay craft and get to Proxima b first.  

Other people already have ideas, as Science News astronomy writer Christopher Crockett noted in his story on the discovery of Proxima b. Philanthropist Yuri Milner recently announced a research project to explore the prospects of sending numerous nanocraft to Proxima Centauri’s neighborhood — the Alpha Centauri triple star system. (Proxima is the third star, presumably in orbit around Alpha Centauri A and B.) That plan envisions wafers weighing about a gram or so carried along by similar-mass light sails propelled by a powerful laser beam. If current technological dreams come true, tiny cameras and lasers on the wafer could capture and transmit information about Proxima b back to Earth.

Supposedly such nanocraft could reach 20 percent of the speed of light, allowing them to reach Proxima Centauri by maybe 20 years after launch. So there’s an outside chance of getting a message back from Proxima b before the Cubs win a World Series. But there’s no hope of hitching a ride on such a wafer, unless, perhaps, you’re a tardigrade.

Even if some futuristic technology permitted building a real ship, say the size of the space shuttle, that could fly 20 percent of the speed of light, it might not be a good idea. Such a ship could, in the wrong hands, become the most devastating weapon ever imagined. Flying 20 percent of light speed, a space shuttle would possess a kinetic energy roughly the equivalent of 1,000 hydrogen bombs (or millions of Hiroshima-sized bombs). Of course, it would be an expensive ship and probably nobody would want to crash it. Unless the people who took it to Proxima Centauri got really mad at the people back on Earth.

[adsgrande]

 

O Boticário maquiagem

Apesar do Boticário lançar coleções como Make B Black Crystal e Make B Miami Sunset, que conquistaram várias consumidoras, o maior sucesso até o momento, foi com certeza a Coleção Cor Intensa.

Pois as tonalidades foram inspiradas em diferentes tonalidades de pele, equiparando perfeitamente com as consumidoras brasileiras, que possuem os mais variados tons de pele.

Apesar da edição ter recebido uma limitação de venda, há indícios que poderá ser lançada nova temporada de vendas desta maquiagem.

Que ganhou somente três jogos de maquiagem com tonalidades variadas para atender as consumidoras, como o jogo de maquiagem para loiras, neste caso, entende-se por pessoas de pele muito clara, morenas e negras.

A coleção Black Crystal apresenta uma variedade de cores com textura cremosa para aplicação de sombras, e em sua maioria, as tonalidades são bem coloridas.

Variando somente entre as sombras cintilantes e sombras opacas, servindo somente de base para as sombras em pó.

Para quem prefere opções mais neutras, deve escolher adequadamente o seu estojo, pois em sua maioria, as maquiagens coloridas e brilhosas estão imperando na coleção Black Crystal.

O iluminador e o blush são os mais discretos do estojo Black Crystal, mas os batons, além de todas as tonalidades apresentarem o brilho, alguns apresentam ainda uma qualidade cintilante, com boa pigmentação e cores bem fortes, apesar da pouca variação de cores.

Essa textura é semelhante a de um batom líquido, mas não há opção de batons mais discretos para maquiagens para noite, devendo saber combinar bem as cores para que possam ser facilmente aplicadas durante o dia.

[adsgrande]

 

Dicas de maquiagem Boticário

O Boticário ainda tem as coleções que possuem ação hidratante nos seus produtos, ou ainda o fator solar de proteção, sendo este a receber tonalidades mais quentes, que são a cara do verão, limitando um pouco o uso durante as demais estações, que combinam menos com cores tão vibrantes.

Estes produtos com ação hidratante e fator solar, também são muito propícios a compra pelas consumidoras, já que é importante o cuidado da pele, mesmo que a pele esteja totalmente pigmentada.

Devendo então considerar que a base e o corretivo preencham algum destes critérios, garantindo a proteção e saúde da pele.

Toda proteção com a pele do rosto se faz necessária, pois a intenção é retardar o envelhecimento e evitar o envelhecimento precoce da pele do rosto, sendo assim, todos os cuidados devem ser ponderados, principalmente a consulta com um dermatologista.

Um ritual diário deve ser feito por quem utiliza maquiagem passo a passo frequentemente, garantindo que sua limpeza seja plena e permitindo que a pele higienizada possa obter os cuidados necessários para a sua preservação.

Utilizando um sabonete apropriado para o tipo de pele, considerando uma limpeza profunda.

Além disso, o uso de tonificantes, em gel ou em loção, permitem que esta limpeza seja ainda mais profunda, removendo completamente as impurezas que permanecem entre os poros.

Para finalizar a higienização com o uso de um hidratante que proporcione uma pele mais bonita e viçosa.

Estes produtos devem ser sugeridos pelo dermatologista, que irá indica as formulações apropriadas para o tipo de pele, podendo ainda optar por produtos que tenham ações calmantes ou controladoras de oleosidade.

A esfoliação periódica da pele, irá promover uma renovação celular e vai também estimular o fluxo sanguíneo na região do rosto, contribuindo para uma pele mais saudável e com aspecto mais bonito e liso, devendo ser feito pelo menos a cada quinze dias.

Bananas: Benefícios para a Saúde, Riscos & Fatos de Nutrição

As bananas estão entre as frutas mais consumidas no planeta de acordo com o Departamento de Agricultura dos EUA, é a fruta preferida dos americanos.

Curvilíneos, esses frutos amarelos são ricos em "potássio e pectina, uma forma de fibra," disse Laura Flores, uma nutricionista com base em San Diego.

Eles também podem ser uma boa maneira de obter magnésio e vitaminas C e B6.

"Todos os tipos de bananas são ricas em antioxidantes, que podem fornecer proteção contra os radicais livres, que podemos entrar em contato todos os dias, a partir da luz solar pela a loção que você colocar na sua pele," acrescentou Flores.

Flores relatou uma ampla variedade de benefícios de saúde associados com a fruta.

"Bananas são conhecidas por reduzir o inchaço, proteger contra o desenvolvimento de diabetes tipo 2, ajudar na perda de peso, fortalecer o sistema nervoso.

Além de ajudar com a produção de células brancas do sangue, devido ao elevado nível de vitamina B6 que as bananas contêm," ela disse a ciência de viver.

Aqui estão os fatores de nutrição das bananas, de acordo com a U.S. Administração de Comida e Drogas, que regulamenta a rotulagem de alimentos através da rotulagem nacional e a lei da educação:

>>> Benefícios para a Saúde

Saúde do Coração

As bananas são boas para o coração. Elas possuem potássio, um eletrólito mineral que mantém a eletricidade por todo seu corpo, necessário para manter seu coração batendo.

O elevado teor de potássio das bananas e teor baixo de sódio podem também ajudar a proteger seu sistema cardiovascular contra alta pressão de sangue.

 

>>> Depressão e Humor

As bananas podem ser úteis na superação de depressão "devido aos altos níveis de triptofano, que o corpo converte em serotonina, neurotransmissor do cérebro de elevação de humor" disse Flores.

Além disso, a vitamina B6 pode ajudá-lo a dormir bem, e o magnésio ajuda a relaxar os músculos.

Digestão e Perda de Peso

A banana prata é ricas em fibras, que podem ajudar a mantê-lo regular.

Uma banana pode fornecer quase 10% da sua necessidade diária de fibras.

A vitamina B6 também pode ajudar a proteger contra a diabetes tipo 2 e ajuda na perda de peso, de acordo com Flores.

Em geral, as bananas são importantes para a perda de peso, porque elas tem um sabor doce e não engordam, o que ajuda a evitar ânsias.
Elas também ajudam a manter os níveis de açúcar no sangue durante exercícios.

 

>>> Visão

Cenouras podem receber toda a glória por ajudar seus olhos, mas as bananas fazem a sua parte também.

Os frutos contêm uma quantidade significativa de vitamina A, que é essencial para proteger os olhos, mantendo a visão normal, além de melhorar a visão durante a noite, de acordo com o Instituto Nacional do Coração.

A vitamina contém compostos que preservam as membranas que circundam os olhos e são um elemento com proteínas que trazem luz para suas córneas.

Como outras frutas, as bananas podem ajudar a prevenir a degeneração macular, uma doença incurável, que embaça a visão central.

Ossos

As bananas podem não transbordar cálcio, mas eles são ainda úteis para manter os ossos fortes.

De acordo com um artigo de 2009, do jornal de Fisiologia e bioquímica, as bananas contêm uma abundância de frutooligossacarídeos.

Estas são carboidratos que incentivam os probióticos digestivo-amigável e reforçam a capacidade do organismo de absorver cálcio.

Câncer

Algumas evidências sugerem que o consumo moderado de bananas pode ser protetora contra o câncer de rim.

Um estudo sueco de 2005 descobriu que mulheres que comiam mais de 75 porções de frutas e legumes eliminaram seu risco de câncer de rim em 40%, e que as bananas foram especialmente eficazes.

Mulheres que comem dieta da banana de quatro a seis por semana diminuem pela metade o risco de desenvolver câncer de rim.

As bananas podem ser úteis na prevenção de câncer de rim por causa de seus altos níveis de compostos fenólicos antioxidantes.

[adsgrande]

 

>>> Riscos para a Saúde

Comido com moderação, não há nenhum efeito colateral significativo associados a comer bananas.

No entanto, comer as frutas em excesso pode provocar dores de cabeça e sonolência, disse Flores.

Ela disse que essas dores de cabeça são causados por eles, "os aminoácidos da banana que dilatam os vasos sanguíneos".

As bananas maduras contêm mais destes ácidos aminados do que as outras bananas.

"Bananas podem também contribuir para a sonolência, quando ingeridas em excesso devido à quantidade elevada de triptofano encontrado nelas," ela disse.

Magnésio também relaxa os músculos, às vezes um benefício, às vezes um risco.

As bananas são frutas açucaradas, então comer demais e não manter práticas de higiene dentária adequada pode levar à deterioração de dente.

Também não contêm bastante gordura ou proteína para ser uma refeição saudável por conta própria, ou um lanche pós-treino eficaz.

Comer bananas torna-se significativamente arriscado somente se você comer demais.

O USDA recomenda que adultos comam cerca de duas xícaras de frutas por dia, ou cerca de duas bananas.

Se você comer dúzias de bananas todos os dias, pode haver um risco de alto teor de vitamina e minerais.

O Centro de Medicina da Universidade de Maryland relatou que o consumo excessivo de potássio pode levar a hipercalemia, que é caracterizada por fraqueza muscular, paralisia temporária e um batimento cardíaco irregular.

E pode ter consequências graves, mas você teria que comer cerca de 43 bananas em um curto período de tempo para que qualquer sintomas de hipercalemia ocorra.

Consumir mais de 500 miligramas de vitamina B6 diariamente possivelmente pode levar a danos nos nervos nos braços e pernas.

Você teria que comer milhares de bananas para chegar ao nível de vitamina B6.

 

Cascas de Banana: Comestíveis ou Venenosas?

Acontece que o maior risco de uma casca de banana pode realmente estar em escorregar nela.

Cascas de banana não são venenosas.

Na verdade, elas são comestíveis e repletas de nutrientes. "Casca de banana é comida em muitas partes do mundo, embora não seja muito comum no Ocidente," disse Flores.

"Ela contém quantidades elevadas de vitamina B6 e B12, bem como magnésio e potássio.

Ela também contém algumas fibras e proteína.

" De acordo com um artigo do jornal de bioquímica aplicada e biotecnologia de 2011, cascas de banana também tem "vários compostos bioativos como polifenóis, carotenoides e outros".

É importante lavar cuidadosamente uma casca de banana antes de comê-la devido as pesticidas que podem ser pulverizadas em pomares de banana.

Cascas de banana são geralmente servidas cozidas ou fritas, embora elas podem ser comidas cruas ou batidas em um liquidificador com outras frutas.

Elas não são tão doces como a banana. As cascas serão mais doces do que as bananas verdes.

 

>>> Fatos da Banana

As bananas podem ter sido o primeiro fruto cultivado do mundo.

Arqueólogos encontraram evidências de cultivo de banana na Nova Guiné, desde 8000 A.C.

As bananas são produzidas principalmente em áreas tropicais e subtropicais da África, Ásia e das Américas, bem como as ilhas Canárias e Austrália.

As bananas não crescem em árvores.

A bananeira é classificada como uma erva perene arborescente de (tipo de árvore), e a banana em si é considerada uma baga.

O nome correto para um cacho de bananas é uma mão; uma única banana é um dedo.

Quase todas as bananas vendidas nas lojas são clonadas de apenas uma variedade, a planta de banana Cavendish, originalmente nativa do sudeste da Ásia.

O Cavendish substituiu o Gros Michel, depois que essa variedade foi exterminada pelo fungo.

O Gros Michel supostamente era maior, tinha uma vida útil mais longa e um sabor melhor.

O Cavendish pode enfrentar o mesmo destino que o Gros Michel dentro dos próximos 20 anos, dizem os botânicos.

As bananas são também chamadas de plátanos.

Mas em geral, "banana" refere-se a forma mais doce da fruta, que muitas vezes é comida cru, enquanto "banana" refere-se a uma fruta que muitas vezes é cozida antes de comer.

Existem 50 espécies reconhecidas de banana.

A dieta da banana com aveia selvagens crescem em todo o Sudeste Asiático, mas não são comestíveis para os seres humanos, pois são cravejados com sementes duras.

A grande maioria das bananas cultivadas hoje é para consumo por agricultores ou a comunidade local.

Apenas 15% da produção global do fruto é cultivado para a exportação.

A Índia é a maior produtora de bananas no mundo, respondendo por 23% da total da produção de bananas, embora a maioria dos plátanos indianos é para uso doméstico.

Em 1923, a partitura de uma música popular intitulada "Sim, nós temos Bananas!" vendeu mais de mil cópias por dia

A versão de Harry Belafonte da canção "barco Banana" foi lançado no primeiro álbum que vendeu mais de 1 milhão de cópias.

          Procissão do Encontro na Semana Santa   
Uma celebração litúrgica de muita piedade, que o povo católico muito aprecia durante a Semana Santa, é a Procissão do Encontro, um momento que marca o encontro da Virgem Maria com Seu Filho Divino, carregando a cruz no caminho do Calvário, pelas ruas de Jerusalém, depois de ser flagelado, coroado de espinhos e condenado à morte por Pilatos. É um momento em que meditamos o doloroso encontro da Virgem Maria com Jesus; é um momento de profunda reflexão sobre as dores da Mãe de Jesus, desde o Seu nascimento até a Sua morte na cruz. Jesus sofreu a Paixão; a Virgem sofreu a compaixão por nós.

A “espada de Simeão”, que não saíra da mente de Jesus durante 30 anos de Sua vida, apresentava-se cada vez mais ameaçadora diante de Maria. Não é difícil imaginar o quanto Nossa Senhora sofreu ao ver seu Filho ser perseguido, odiado, jurado de morte pelos anciãos e doutores da Lei que o invejavam. Quantas ciladas Lhe armavam! Quantas disputas Ele teve de travar com os mestres da Lei.

E eis que a Paixão do Senhor se torna presente. Todo ano, ela ia a Jerusalém para a festa da Páscoa judaica, e também naquele ano da morte do seu Amado, ela ali estava.

Podemos imaginar a dor do coração de Maria ao saber da traição de Judas, do abandono dos discípulos no Horto das Oliveiras, a negação de Pedro e, depois, Sua prisão e maus tratos nas mãos dos soldados do sumo sacerdote. Certamente, naquela noite santa e terrível, em que Ele, “tendo amado os seus que estavam no mundo, amou-os até o fim” (Jo 13,1), Maria foi informada pelos discípulos que abandonaram o Mestre e fugiram na noite.

Fico pensando na dor de Maria ao saber da tríplice negação de Pedro, o escolhido do Senhor, e de tudo o mais que Seu Filho divino estaria passando nas mãos dos soldados naquela noite. Ela sabia que o Sumo Sacerdote e os doutores a lei estavam ansiosos para pôr as mãos n’Ele. São Lucas narra com riqueza de detalhes os fatos:

“Entretanto, os homens que guardavam Jesus escarneciam dele e davam-lhe bofetadas. Cobriam-lhe o rosto e diziam: Adivinha quem te bateu!” (Lc 22,63-64).

Que Mãe suportaria ver seu Filho sofrer tanto assim?

Na manhã do dia seguinte, sabia que seu Filho era colocado diante de Pilatos, que o mandou flagelar até o sangue escorrer de Suas chagas, e ainda coroado com uma coroa de espinho, dolorosa e humilhante. Que Mãe suportaria ver seu Filho sofrer tanto assim? Que dor Maria não sentiu ao saber, ou quem sabe até ao ouvir, o povo insuflado pelos doutores da Lei gritando a Pilatos: “Crucifica-o! crucifica-o!”? Como deve ter sofrido ao ouvir o povo gritar!

“Todo o povo gritou a uma voz: ‘À morte com este, e solta-nos Barrabás’. Pilatos, porém, querendo soltar Jesus, falou-lhes de novo, mas eles vociferavam: ‘Crucifica-o! Crucifica-o!’. Pilatos pronunciou então a sentença que lhes satisfazia o desejo” (Lc 23,18-24).

Pilatos tinha sentimento humano para com Jesus; tivesse ele vencido sua covardia, talvez o teria salvo do furor da multidão. Maria aceitou tudo aquilo, não se revoltou naquela hora tremenda, que decide a vida ou a morte de seu Filho. Ela sabe que o Filho podia por si, sem auxílio alheio, livrar-se de Seus inimigos, mas se se deixou como um cordeiro levar ao suplício, é porque o fez espontaneamente, cumprindo a vontade de Deus.

Maria foi ao encontro de Jesus que, carregado do peso da cruz, encaminha-se para o Calvário. Ela o vê todo desfigurado e entregue, coberto de mil feridas e horrivelmente ensanguentado. Seus olhares se cruzam. Nenhuma queixa sai de sua boca, porque as maiores dores Deus lhe reservou para a salvação do mundo. Aquelas duas almas, heroicamente generosas, continuam juntas no seu caminho do sofrimento, até o lugar do suplício.

Certamente, Maria O acompanhou no caminho do Calvário, onde ela viu seu Amado carregar a cruz de nossos pecados, todo chagado, ferido, coroado de espinhos, destruído. Certamente, ela se lembrou da espada de Simeão e das palavras de Isaías que conhecia tão bem, tendo-a ouvido na sinagoga de Nazaré:

“Era desprezado, a escória da humanidade, homem das dores, experimentado nos sofrimentos; como aqueles, diante dos quais se cobre o rosto, era amaldiçoado e não fazíamos caso dele.
Em verdade, Ele tomou sobre si nossas enfermidades e carregou os nossos sofrimentos; e nós o reputamos como um castigado, ferido por Deus e humilhado. Mas ele foi castigado por nossos crimes e esmagado por nossas iniquidades. O castigo que nos salva pesou sobre Ele; fomos curados graças às Suas chagas. Todos nós andávamos desgarrados como ovelhas, seguíamos cada qual nosso caminho. O Senhor fazia recair sobre ele o castigo das faltas de todos nós. Foi maltratado e resignou-se; não abriu a boca, como um cordeiro que se conduz ao matadouro, e uma ovelha muda nas mãos do tosquiador. (Ele não abriu a boca.) Por um iníquo julgamento foi arrebatado. Quem pensou em defender sua causa, quando foi suprimido da terra dos vivos, morto pelo pecado de meu povo? Foi-lhe dada sepultura ao lado de facínoras e ao morrer achava-se entre malfeitores, se bem que não haja cometido injustiça alguma, e em sua boca nunca tenha havido mentira. Mas aprouve ao Senhor esmagá-lo pelo sofrimento; se ele oferecer sua vida em sacrifício expiatório, terá uma posteridade duradoura, prolongará seus dias, e a vontade do Senhor será por ele realizada. Após suportar em sua pessoa os tormentos, alegrar-se-á de conhecê-lo até o enlevo. O Justo, meu Servo, justificará muitos homens, e tomará sobre si suas iniquidades. Eis por que lhe darei parte com os grandes, e ele dividirá a presa com os poderosos: porque ele próprio deu sua vida, e deixou-se colocar entre os criminosos, tomando sobre si os pecados de muitos homens, e intercedendo pelos culpados” (Is 53,3-12).

Não há dor semelhante a essa de Nossa Senhora, desde quando se encontrou com seu divino Filho no caminho do Calvário, carregando a pesada cruz e insultado como se fosse um criminoso. A aceitação da vontade do Altíssimo sempre foi a sua força em horas tão cruéis como essa.

Maria compreende a dor da alma

Ao encontrar Sua Mãe, os olhos de Jesus a fitaram, e ela certamente compreendeu a dor de Sua alma. Não pôde lhe dizer palavra nenhuma, mas a fez compreender que era necessário que unisse a sua dor à d’Ele. A união da grande dor de Jesus e de Maria, nesse encontro, tem sido a força de tantos mártires e de tantas mães aflitas.

Esse fato ficou tão marcado na vida do povo católico, que tanto ama sua Mãe e seu Filho, que não deixa de celebrar esse encontro com uma procissão na Semana Santa. Mãe e Filho se encontram nas ruas das cidades ou em alguma praça onde o povo pode reviver esse santo encontro.

Nós, que temos medo do sacrifício, devemos aprender, nesse encontro, a submeter-nos à vontade de Deus, como Jesus e Maria se submeteram. Aprendamos a calar nos nossos sofrimentos, e os olhares de Jesus e de Maria consolarão a nossa pobre alma sofredora.

Maria viveu os tormentos da Paixão de seu armadíssimo Filho. Encontra-O no caminho do Calvário, flagelado, coroado de espinhos, esbofeteado, destruído… Que mãe poderia aguentar tamanha dor? Seu Filho Santo, Deus, carregando nas costas a cruz de Seu suplício!

As nossas almas vão sentir a eficácia dessa riqueza na hora em que, abatidos pela dor, formos até nossa Mãe, fazendo a meditação desse encontro dolorosíssimo. Esse silêncio se converterá em força para as almas aflitas, quando, nas horas difíceis, souberem recorrer à meditação desta Mãe que sofre.

É precioso o silêncio nas horas de sofrimentos; muitos não sabem sofrer uma dor física, uma tortura da alma, em silêncio; desejam logo contá-la para que todos o lastimem! Nossa Senhora e Jesus nos ensinam a vencer a aflição suportando tudo, em silêncio, por amor a Deus.

Certamente a dor nos humilha, mas é nessa santa humilhação que Deus nos edifica, corrige, cura e santifica. São Francisco de Sales dizia que ninguém se torna humilde e santo se não passar pela cadinho da humilhação. Jesus e Maria nos ensinam a aprender a sofrer em silêncio, como eles sofreram no doloroso encontro no caminho do Calvário.

          On This Day in Math - July 1   

Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty
a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture, 
without appeal to any part of our weaker nature,
without the gorgeous trappings of painting or music, 
yet sublimely pure, and capable of a stern perfection such as only the greatest art can show. 
 The true spirit of delight, the exaltation, 
the sense of being more than Man, 
which is the touchstone of the highest excellence, 
is to be found in mathematics as surely as in poetry.
--BERTRAND RUSSELL,


The 182nd day of the year; there are 182 connected bipartite graphs with 8 vertices. *What's So Special About This Number

The 182nd prime (1091) is the smaller of a pair of twin primes (the 40th pair, actually) *Math Year-Round ‏@MathYearRound(Students might convince themselves that it was not necessary to say it was the smaller of the pair.)

Language time:
182 is called a pronic, promic, or heteromecic and even an oblong number. Pronic Numbers are numbers that are the product of two consecutive integers; 2, 6, 12, 20, ..(doubles of triangular numbers).  Pronic seems to be a misspelling of promic, from the Greek promekes, for rectangular, oblate or oblong. Neither pronic nor promic seems to appear in most modern dictionaries. Richard Guy pointed out to the Hyacinthos newsgroup that pronic had been used by Euler in series one, volume fifteen of his Opera, so the mathematical use of the "n" form has a long history.

Oblong is from the Latin ob (excessive) + longus (long). The word oblong is also commonly used as an alternate name for a rectangle. In his translation of Euclid's "Elements", Sir Thomas Heath translates the Greek word eteromhkes[hetero mekes - literally "different lengths"] in Book one, Definition 22 as oblong. . "Of Quadrilateral figures, a square is that which is both equilateral and right-angled; an oblong that which is right angled but not equilateral...". (note that with this definition, a square is not a subset of rectangles.)

1349 Sometimes, a little astronomical knowledge can be a dangerous thing, even to those who possess it. A tale from medieval England is passed down from the chronicles of the scholar Thomas Bradwardine of a witch who attempted to force her will on the people through knowledge of an impending eclipse. Bradwardine, who had studied astronomical predictions of Arabian astronomers, saw through the ruse, and matched the prediction of the July 01, 1349 A.D. lunar eclipse with a more precise one of his own. No word survives as to the fate of the accused, but one can only suspect banishment or worse.*listosaur.com

1819 William George Horner’s (1786–1837) method of solving equations is presented to the Royal Society.*VFR In numerical analysis, the Horner scheme (also known as Horner algorithm), named after William George Horner, is an algorithm for the efficient evaluation of polynomials in monomial form. Horner's method describes a manual process by which one may approximate the roots of a polynomial equation. The Horner scheme can also be viewed as a fast algorithm for dividing a polynomial by a linear polynomial with Ruffini's rule. Student's often learn this process as synthetic division.  *Wik

In 1858, the Wallace-Darwin theory of evolution was first published at the Linnaean Society in London*. The previous month Charles Darwin received a letter from Alfred Wallace, who was collecting specimens in the East Indies. Wallace had independently developed a theory of natural selection - which was almost identical to Darwin's. The letter asked Darwin to evaluate the theory, and if worthy of publication, to forward the manuscript to Charles Lyell. Darwin did so, almost giving up his clear priority for he had not yet published his masterwork The Origin of Species. Neither Darwin nor Wallace were present for the oral presentation at the Linnaean Society, where geologist Charles Lyell and botanist Joseph Hooker presented both Wallace's paper and excerpts from Darwin's unpublished 1844 essay.*TIS

BIRTHS

1646 Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (July 1, 1646 – November 14, 1716) born in Leipzig, Germany. Leibniz occupies a prominent place in the history of mathematics and the history of philosophy. He developed the infinitesimal calculus independently of Isaac Newton, and Leibniz's mathematical notation has been widely used ever since it was published. He became one of the most prolific inventors in the field of mechanical calculators. While working on adding automatic multiplication and division to Pascal's calculator, he was the first to describe a pinwheel calculator in 1685[4] and invented the Leibniz wheel, used in the arithmometer, the first mass-produced mechanical calculator. He also refined the binary number system, which is at the foundation of virtually all digital computers. In philosophy, Leibniz is mostly noted for his optimism, e.g. his conclusion that our Universe is, in a restricted sense, the best possible one that God could have created. Leibniz, along with René Descartes and Baruch Spinoza, was one of the three great 17th century advocates of rationalism. The work of Leibniz anticipated modern logic and analytic philosophy, but his philosophy also looks back to the scholastic tradition, in which conclusions are produced by applying reason to first principles or a priori definitions rather than to empirical evidence. Leibniz made major contributions to physics and technology, and anticipated notions that surfaced much later in biology, medicine, geology, probability theory, psychology, linguistics, and information science. He wrote works on politics, law, ethics, theology, history, philosophy, and philology. Leibniz's contributions to this vast array of subjects were scattered in various learned journals, in tens of thousands of letters, and in unpublished manuscripts. As of 2010, there is no complete gathering of the writings of Leibniz.*Wik

1779 John Farrar (July 1, 1779 – May 8, 1853) born at Lincoln, Massachusetts. As Hollis professor of mathematics and natural philosophy at Harvard, he was responsible for a sweeping modernization of the science and mathematics curriculum, including the change from Newton’s to Leibniz’s notation for the calculus. *VFR

1788 Jean Victor Poncelet (July 1, 1788 – December 22, 1867) born in Metz, France. He taught engineering and mechanics, but had a hobby of much greater interest—projective geometry. *VFR French mathematician and engineer whose study of the pole and polar lines associated with conic led to the principle of duality. While serving as an engineer in Napoleon's 1812 Russian campaign as an engineer, he was left for dead at Krasnoy, but then captured. During his imprisonment he studied projective geometry and wrote a treatise on analytic geometry. Released in 1814, he returned to France, and in 1822 published Traité des propriétés projectives des figures in which he presented his fundamental ideas of projective geometry such as the cross-ratio, perspective, involution and the circular points at infinity. As a professor of mechanics (1825-35), he applied mechanics to improve waterwheels and was able to double their efficiency.*TIS

1848 Emil Weyr (1 July 1848 in Prague, Bohemia (now Czech Republic) - 25 Jan 1894 in Vienna, Austria) His father Frantisek Weyr, was a professor of mathematics at a realschule (secondary school) in Prague from 1855. Emil was four years older than his brother Eduard Weyr who also became a famous mathematician. Emil attended the realschule in Prague where his father taught, then studied at the Prague Polytechnic from 1865 to 1868 where he was taught geometry by Vilém Fiedler.
He studied in Italy with Cremona and Casorati during the academic year 1870-71 returning to Prague where he continued to teach. In 1872 he was elected to be Head of the Union of Czech Mathematicians and Physicists. In 1875 he was appointed as professor of mathematics at the University of Vienna. He, together with his brother Eduard Weyr, were the main members of the Austrian geometric school. They were interested in descriptive geometry, then in projective geometry and their interests turned towards algebraic and synthetic methods in geometry. Among many works Emil Weyr published were Die Elemente der projectivischen Geometrie and Über die Geometrie der alten Aegypter.
Emil Weyr led the geometry school in Vienna throughout the 1880's up until his death. Together with Gustav von Escherich, Emil Weyr founded the important mathematical journal Monatshefte fuer Mathematik und Physik in 1890. The first volumes of the journal contain papers written by his brother Eduard. In 1891 Emil Weyr became one of the first 19 founder members of the Royal Czech Academy of Sciences. *SAU

1906 Jean Dieudonn´e (1 July 1906 – 29 November 1992) born. *VFR French mathematician and educator known for his writings on abstract algebra, functional analysis, topology, and his theory of Lie groups. Dieudonné was one of the two main contributors to the Bourbaki series of texts. He began his mathematical career working on the analysis of polynomials. He worked in a wide variety of mathematical areas including general topology, topological vector spaces, algebraic geometry, invariant theory and the classical groups. *TIS



DEATHS


1957 Donald McIntosh (Banffshire, 13 January 1868 – Invernesshire, 1 July 1957) graduated from the University of Aberdeen and taught at George Watson's Ladies College in Edinburgh. He was appointed a Director of Education. He became Secretary of the EMS in 1899 and President in 1905. *SAU

1963 Bevan Braithwaite Baker (1890 in Edinburgh, Scotland - 1 July 1963 in Edinburgh, Scotland) graduated from University College London. After service in World War I he became a lecturer at Edinburgh University and was Secretary of the EMS from 1921 to 1923. He left to become Professor at Royal Holloway College London. *SAU

1971 Sir William Lawrence Bragg (31 Mar 1890; 1 Jul 1971 at age 81) was an Australian-English physicist and X-ray crystallographer who at the early age of 25, shared the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1915 (with his father, Sir William Bragg). Lawrence Bragg formulated the Bragg law of X-ray diffraction, which is basic for the determination of crystal structure: nλ = 2dsinθ which relates the wavelength of x-rays, λ, the angle of incidence on a crystal, θ, and the spacing of crystal planes, d, for x-ray diffraction, where n is an integer (1, 2, 3, etc.). Together, the Braggs worked out the crystal structures of a number of substances. Early in this work, they showed that sodium chloride does not have individual molecules in the solid, but is an array of sodium and chloride ions. *TIS

1983 Richard Buckminster Fuller (July 12, 1895 – July 1, 1983) was a U.S. engineer and architect who developed the geodesic dome, the only large dome that can be set directly on the ground as a complete structure, and the only practical kind of building that has no limiting dimensions (i.e., beyond which the structural strength must be insufficient). Fuller also invented a wide range of other paradigm-shifting machines and structural systems. He was especially interested in high-strength-to-weight designs, with a maximum of utility for minimum of material. His designs and engineering philosophy are part of the foundation of contemporary high-tech design aesthetics. He held over 2000 patents.*TIS

You know we all became mathematicians for the same reason: 
we were lazy. 
Max Rosenlicht

The 181st day of the year; 181 is the 9th palindromic prime number.

and the 181-digit palindromic number made up of all 7's except for the center being 181 (7777...7718177...77777) is a palindromic prime with a palindromic prime decimal length.

181 is the both the difference and the sum of consecutive squares:
\( 181 = 91^2 – 90^2 = 9^2 + 10^2 \)

 Every natural number greater than 181 can be written as sum of cubes of the first two primes. (students might be asked to find all examples of numbers less than 181 that can be written in this fashion, such as 35= 23 + 33)

1686 The Royal Society made the decision to publish De Historia Piscium, a lavishly-illustrated history of fishes by John Ray and Francis Willughby.

At one point Edmond Halley's salary could not be paid during the same period when he was trying to get Newton to complete his epic masterpiece, The Principia. Fortunately for science, Halley accepted a deal for something like one-hundred copies of the fish book, and then mostly funded the publication of Newton's classic himself over the next year. I don't know if Halley ever managed to sell any of the De Historia Piscium that he took in lieu of salary. *PB old notes.

1737 John Harrison, after positive results on the test of his first sea-clock, receives the first money awarded by the Board of Longitude (23 years after the Act to create the Board).

1742 Euler replied (see June 7 post) in a letter dated 30 June 1742, and reminded Goldbach of an earlier conversation they had ("...so Ew vormals mit mir communicirt haben.."), in which Goldbach remarked his original (and not marginal) conjecture followed from the following statement, “Every even integer greater than 2 can be written as the sum of two primes,” which is thus also a conjecture of Goldbach. In the letter dated 30 June 1742, Euler stated:“Dass ... ein jeder numerus par eine summa duorum primorum sey, halte ich für ein ganz gewisses theorema, ungeachtet ich dasselbe necht demonstriren kann.” ("every even integer is a sum of two primes. I regard this as a completely certain theorem, although I cannot prove it.")*Wik

1860 Oxford evolution debate took place at the Oxford University Museum on 30 June 1860, seven months after the publication of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. Several prominent British scientists and philosophers participated, including Thomas Henry Huxley, Bishop Samuel Wilberforce, Benjamin Brodie, Joseph Dalton Hooker and Robert FitzRoy.
The debate is best remembered today for a heated exchange in which Wilberforce supposedly asked Huxley whether it was through his grandfather or his grandmother that he claimed his descent from a monkey. Huxley is said to have replied that he would not be ashamed to have a monkey for his ancestor, but he would be ashamed to be connected with a man who used his great gifts to obscure the truth *Wik

1894 Tower Bridge opens, In 1886, the foundation stone of the Tower Bridge in London, England was laid (over a time capsule) by the Prince of Wales. The need to cross the River Thames at this point had become increasingly urgent for many years, and finally the necessary Act was passed in 1885. The bridge, designed by Mr. Wolfe Barry, CB, was completed at a cost of about £1,000,000. To permit the passage of tall ships between the towers, two bascule spans, each of 100-ft length, are raised. The side spans to the towers are of the more familiar suspension type. Pedestrians can traverse a high-level footway nearly at the top of the towers, even when the bridge is raised. It was officially opened 30 Jun 1894, by the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, on behalf of Queen *TIS

1905 Albert Einstein's paper, "On the electrodynamics of moving bodies" (special relativity) is received at the Journal Annalen der Physik.
"Einstein develops the special theory of relativity in this paper. His concern, as he makes clear in the introduction, is that then current electrodynamics harbors a state of rest, the ether state of rest, and the theory gives very different accounts of electrodynamic processes at rest or moving in the ether. But experiments in electrodynamics and optic have provided no way to determine which is the ether state of rest of all inertial state of motion. Einstein shows that Maxwell-Lorentz electrodynamics has in fact always obeyed a principle of relativity of inertial motion. We just failed to notice it since we tacitly thought that space and time had Newtonian properties, not those of special relativity. " *John D Norton, Einstein, 1905, Pitt.edu

1908 A Comet(?) explodes above Tunguska, Siberia. *VFR In 1908, at around 7:15 am, northwest of Lake Baikal, Russia, a huge fireball nearly as bright as the Sun was seen crossing the sky. Minutes later, there was a huge flash and a shock wave felt up to 650 km (400 mi) away. Over Tunguska, a meteorite over 50-m diameter, travelling at over 25 km per second (60,000 mph) penetrated Earth's atmosphere, heated to about 10,000 ºC and detonated 6 to10 km above the ground. The blast released the energy of 10-50 Megatons of TNT, destroying 2,200 sq km of forest leaving no trace of life. The Tunguska rock came out of the Taurid Meteor storm that crosses Earth's orbit twice a year. The first scientific expedition for which records survive was made by Russian mineralogist Leonid Kulik in 1927. *TIS

In 1948, the transistor was demonstrated by its inventors, John Bardeen and Walter Brattain, scientists at the Bell Telephone Laboratory in Murray Hill, NJ.* It was a simple, tiny device utilizing the electronic semiconducting properties of a germanium wafer. The transistor represented a significant advance in technology. As it was developed over the next few years, it was incorporated into electronic equipment as a functional replacment for the vacuum tube. Such use of transistors provided great savings in space and electrical power consumption. This made possible the small portable, battery-powered transistor radios which were sold to the public by late 1954.*TIS

1954 Solar eclipse in Britain. The about 3 minutes totality was visible in the Faroes and the southern line was crossing the northernmost Shetland.

1973     
A group of scientist boarded a prototype French Concorde airplane to chase a solar eclipse. The eclipse promised a luxurious view if you stood at the right place on the planet: a maximum of 7 minutes and 4 seconds as the moon passed over the Sahara Desert. It would be just 28 seconds short of the longest possible eclipse viewable from Earth; in the preceding several hundred years, there had only been one eclipse longer than this one, and there would not be a longer total solar eclipse until June 2150. Not satisfied with one of the longest eclpises in recent history, the group managed to negotiate a viewing flight on the still in testing Concorde. Closing in at maximum velocity, Concorde would swoop down from the north and intercept the shadow of the moon over northwest Africa. Traveling together at almost the same speed, Concorde would essentially race the solar eclipse across the surface of the planet, giving astronomers an unprecedented opportunity to study the various phenomena made possible by an eclipse. In one flight, Concorde had given astronomers more eclipse observing time than all the previous expeditions last century—generating three articles in Nature and a wealth of new data. *Motherboard

However, the spacing is quite irregular and apparently increasing: there were no leap seconds in the seven-year interval between January 1, 1999 and December 31, 2005, but there were nine leap seconds in the eight years 1972–1979. *Wik


BIRTHS

1748  Dominique Cassini (30 June 1748 – 18 October 1845)  was a French mathematician and surveyor who worked on his father's map of France.  He was the son of César-François Cassini de Thury and was born at the Paris Observatory. In 1784 he succeeded his father as director of the observatory; but his plans for its restoration and re-equipment were wrecked in 1793 by the animosity of the National Assembly. His position having become intolerable, he resigned on September 6, and was thrown into prison in 1794, but released after seven months. He then withdrew to Thury, where he died fifty-one years later.
He published in 1770 an account of a voyage to America in 1768, undertaken as the commissary of the French Academy of Sciences with a view to testing Pierre Le Roy’s watches at sea. A memoir in which he described the operations superintended by him in 1787 for connecting the observatories of Paris and Greenwich by longitude-determinations appeared in 1791. He visited England for the purposes of the work, and saw William Herschel at Slough. He completed his father’s map of France, which was published by the Academy of Sciences in 1793. It served as the basis for the Atlas National (1791), showing France in departments.
Cassini’s Mémoires pour servir à l’histoire de l’observatoire de Paris (1810) embodied portions of an extensive work, the prospectus of which he had submitted to the Academy of Sciences in 1774. The volume included his Eloges of several academicians, and the autobiography of his great-grandfather, Giovanni Cassini.*Wik

1791  Félix Savart (June 30, 1791, Charleville-Mézières, Ardennes – March 16, 1841, Paris) became a professor at Collège de France in 1836 and was the co-originator of the Biot-Savart Law, along with Jean-Baptiste Biot. Together, they worked on the theory of magnetism and electrical currents. Their law was developed about 1820. The Biot-Savart Law relates magnetic fields to the currents which are their sources. Félix Savart also studied acoustics. He developed the Savart wheel which produces sound at specific graduated frequencies using rotating disks.
Félix Savart is the namesake of the unit of measurement for musical intervals, the savart, though it was actually invented by Joseph Sauveur.*Wik

1856 Cargill Knott (June 30, 1856 – October 26, 1922) born. He graduated from Edinburgh University and was then an assistant in the Physics department. With Barclay and Fraser he was one of the writers who originally proposed the founding of the EMS. He went to the Imperial University in Tokyo as Professor. He returned to a lectureship in Edinburgh and eventually became a Reader in Applied Mathematics. He became Secretary and Treasurer of the EMS in 1883 and President in 1893 and 1918.*SAU

1880 Birthdate of Rudolf Fueter (30 June 1880 in Basel; 9 August 1950 in Brunnen) who worked with functions with non-commutative variables and also in number theory. *SAU


DEATHS

1660 William Oughtred, (5 March 1575 – 30 June 1660) inventor of the slide rule (1621) and a staunch royalist, died in a transport of joy on hearing the news of the restoration of Charles II. Augustus De Morgan later remarked, “It should be added, by way of excuse, that he was eighty-six years old.” *VFR an Episcopal minister who invented the earliest form of the slide rule, two identical linear or circular logarithmic scales held together and adjusted by hand. Improvements involving the familiar inner rule with tongue-in-groove linear construction came later. He introduced the familiar multiplication sign x in a 1631 textbook, along with the first use of the abbreviations sin, cos and tan.*TIS

1919 John William Strutt 3rd Baron of Rayleigh (of Terling Place)(12 November 1842 – 30 June 1919) was an English physical scientist who made fundamental discoveries in the fields of acoustics and optics that are basic to the theory of wave propagation in fluids. He received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1904 for his investigations into the densities of the most important gases and his successful isolation of argon, an inert atmospheric gas.*TIS

Valoración: 9.

No creo que nadie a estas alturas se atreviera a cuestionar el talento que Alejandro Amenabar tiene tras las cámaras, ya sea inquietándonos con Tesis, asustandónos con Los Otros o aleccionándonos con Mar Adentro sobre la libertad individual de morir. En Ágora, aunque con el disfraz de una superproducción, Amenabar firma la que podría ser una de sus películas más intímistas, arriesgadas, comprometidas y extremas de toda su carrera.

Hipatia, filósofa, matemática y astronóma, vivió en Alejandria a mediados del siglo IV D.C y fué miembro y líder de la escuela neoplátonica de Alejandria. Siendo la primera matemática de la que se tiene constancia histórica, murió a manos de una turba de cristianos en la primera década del siglo V, cuando en la ciudad egipcia se libraba una batalla de poder entre el floreciente cristianismo, el patriarcado alejandrino y una Roma que iba declinando poco a poco.

Se ha dicho que Ágora no emociona, pero si lo hace en los momentos en que quiere el director, que no son, desde luego, los que esperaría el público, algo que en mi opinión dice mucho de su honestidad para consigo mismo y deja ver claramente hasta que punto es ya libre creativamente en sus producciones, por no hablar de, como ya dije más arriba, la valentía de su propuesta.

Amenabar hace de Ágora una declaración de amor incondicional a Hipatia y por ende, a la ciencia que esta representa y por otro lado, escupe sin compasión a cuanta religión haya sido o es sobre la tierra y a las políticas que bajo su amparo se han llevado a cabo. De esto, y no de otro tema, trata Ágora.

Los planos cenitales que pueblan toda la cinta (impresionante el asalto de la bibllioteca por parte de los cristianos, a los que muestra como una nube de insectos infectos) o los planos desde el espacio del planeta tierra, nos intentan hacer ver qué miserables, cruéles, inútiles y animales son nuestras estúpidas luchas terrenas, en contraposición con la quietud y la maravilla del universo.

Cuando Hipatia especula con las órbitas del sistema solar, el director presta toda su atención, mimando al personaje, emocionándose con ella ante la posibilidad de desentrañar otro enigma cósmico. Paradójicamente, es en la ciencia y en el pensamiento racional dónde el hombre se hace realmente libre y se acerca a la perfección que representa la idea de dios, algo que Amenabar, encomiablemente, nos intenta hacer ver una y otra vez en Ágora.

En los momentos en que la cámara enfoca la Alejandria mundana y deja de mirar las estrellas, nos muestra, en mi opinión muy brillantemente, hasta que punto se prostituyen las creencias, como se alian con la política y cómo la mentira y la manipulación son poderosas herramientas en los estómagos vacíos.

Amparados por un guión muy robusto, la labor de los actores brilla a gran altura. Rachel Weisz, tan guapa como buena actriz, compone una Hipatia excepcional. Tal y como, muy problabemente, hizo la filósofa real, dedica la vida a la ciencia, ajena a las luchas que la rodean o los pretendientes que la acechan, siempre por encima de sus semejantes, blanca y pura entre la multitud. Max Minguella y Oscar Isaac, sus réplicas masculinas en esta película, interpretan con solvencia a dos hombres enamorados de la filósofa, incapaces a su vez de alcanzarla, presas ambos de sus propias miserias y vencidos de antemano por el cosmos, que es el verdadero amor de Hipatia. Todos los personajes de esta película tienen meridianamente clara su motivación y actuan conforme a ella hasta su conclusión.

Por último, cabe destacar la extraordinaria puesta en escena de la película, desde la ambientación, el diseño artístico, el sorprendente vestuario, la verosimilitud de cuánto se muestra en pantalla y el brio de las escenas de acción.

En definitiva, una grandísima película de este talentoso director, que sin embargo, no llegará, me temo, a los corazones del gran público, pues donde esperaban amores imposibles, vieron en cambio, tal vez sin comprender, la emoción incomensurable que hay en las estrellas.

Fireworks, barbecue hopping and parade marching are on my action-packed agenda, so I'm looking to on-the-go blogger Belen Hostalet for some what-to-wear ideas. Her mix of streamlined swimsuits, vibrant short dresses, embellished tops and bold accessories is distinctly cool and poised for (perpetual) action. I love her Euro-sleek swimsuits by Arabella London (above) and In Your Arms (below).  Also cool: her beach to street boho dresses and tops, like this red $39 Mango (second image down) and this embellished Dodo Ba Or (on sale, last pic). These similar-spirited styles by Lemlem, Anjuna, Derek Lam 10 Crosby, and Figue (on sale!) are also amazing. Head-turning bags and sunglasses are Belen's exemplary finishing touches; Her go-to's include these sunglasses by Folli Follie (above) and House of Hererra (below), and ornate basket bags, like this and this.

          10 creencias erróneas sobre el espacio   

En resumen,

  1. La historia del bolígrafo espacial que costó millones de dólares desarrollar, cuando era más fácil usar un simple lápiz. No, nadie quiere lápices soltando fragmentos y polvo de grafito en una nave espacial.
  2. El Big Bang no es el origen de todo, sino más bien es “un momento en el que el orden del Universo cambió drásticamente.” Pero hay indicios de que antes del Big Bang había algo, aunque no se sabe el qué.
  3. No explotas si sales al espacio sin traje, antes de sufrir ninguna otra cosa mueres asfixiado.
  4. Los meteoritos no llegan a la Tierra como en las películas, entrando como elefante en cacharrería. Cada año alcanzan la Tierra entre 18.000 y 84.000 meteoros y la mayoría son tan pequeños que ni siquiera alcanzan la superficie (no llegan a meteorito.)
  5. Los agujeros negros no engullen “todo incluso la luz”. Aunque “se quedan” con cualquier cosa que traspase su umbral su masa no es infinita, y por tanto la capacidad de atracción de un agujero negro es limitada. “Si el Sol fuera un agujero negro de masa equivalente el Sistema Solar seguiría en su sitio, aunque pasaríamos un poco de frío.”
  6. El Sol no es amarillo. Es más bien “una bola blanca con cierto tono anaranjado”.
  7. La Gran muralla de China no se ve desde el espacio a simple vista. Lo saben hasta en China.
  8. Las imágenes que conocemos del espacio (de galaxias, estrellas, o de los Pilares de la creación) en realidad son “interpretaciones artísticas” desarrolladas a partir de datos científicos. El Hubble, por ejemplo, sólo toma fotografías en blanco y negro. Photoshop científico.
  9. En el espacio nadie puede oír tus gritos, pero que no se puedan oír no significa que no se puedan transmitir porque el espacio no está totalmente vacío: hay partículas de polvo y de gas y hay zonas donde hay suficiente cantidad como para transmitir ondas de sonido. Pero se transmite a una frecuencia demasiado baja como para que sea perceptible.
  10. Es poco probable que podamos viajar a otras estrellas hasta que demos con la tecla para otro tipo de tecnología de propulsión, como la antimateria; pero hoy por hoy en la Tierra no hay recursos suficientes para producir todo el combustible que sería necesario para viajar a una estrella cercana con los vehículos actuales.

          Did You Know Space Weather Influences Human Health & Behaviour?   
Solar energy and cosmic radiation have electrical influences over a multitude of human activities including human health.

Mainstream science has begun to accept these effects, and to investigate the topic in a serious way, but the science itself is by no means ‘new’.

At the December 1926 annual meeting of the American Meteorological Society, Russian Professor Alexander Tchijevsky (also spelt Chizhevsky) presented the paper “Physical Factors of the Historical Process.”

The paper examined the cyclical variations in the sunspot number of the Solar Cycle in order to create a mass index of human excitability throughout history.

Did You Know Space Weather Influences Human Health & Behaviour?
He found that revolutions and periods of intense fighting seemed to occur during Solar Maxima – the period of greatest activity in the 11-year solar cycle of the Sun – while cultural flourishing and social cohesion tended to occur during Solar Minima.

It was in this paper that Tchijevsky wrote:

The Sun is an enormous generator of electric energy and emits it in the form of radiation and induction.

The Sun is surrounded by an electromagnetic field, the limits of which reach beyond the farthermost planet Neptune, and therefore the Earth with its electromagnetic field is in the Sun’s field of tremendous power.1

Tchijevsky and other observers at this time noticed that during the period of maximum solar activity, all of the Sun’s phenomena would acquire tremendous size and strength, and that:

“The Sun ejects streams of anode and cathode rays which ionize the Earth’s atmosphere (Birke, Arrhenius, Nordmann, Paulsen, Villards) and create certain effects.”

Based on previous research, Tchijevsky postulated that:

The influence of the Sun on the human organism results in chemical changes in the pigment of the skin, in the chaining of the heart-beat, in the alterations in the chemical composition of the blood and the latter results in changes in the general condition of the organism and its nervous tonicity (Lenkei, Behring, Hasselback, Nogler, Aimes, Rollier, Revillet, Marques, d’Oelsnitz, Robin, Moleshott, Loeb, I. Newton, Professor Bechtereff, Lombroso).

Given that the varying amount of the Sun’s energy received by the different climatic zones has such a great influence on humanity, Tchijevsky posed the question: do the periodical changes of the Sun’s activity resulting in the amount of the emitted innumerable streams of electrical particles and electromagnetic waves also have an influence upon humanity?

It wasn’t until 1942 that Soviet leader Joseph Stalin became aware of this paper and Tchijevsky’s research.

Tchijevsky was subsequently asked to retract his ideas and writings on the influence of Solar Cycles on human behaviour, “which contradicted Soviet theories of the reasons for the Russian revolutions of 1905 and 1917. He refused, was arrested and spent eight years in a forced labour gulag in the Ural mountains.”2

Nonetheless, his ideas were central to the budding field of Space Weather research.

In a paper from 2007, “Solar Activity, revolutions and cultural prime in the history of mankind,” Prof. Miroslav Mikulecký’s research is in agreement with Tchijevsky’s hypothesis that “revolutions culminated near to solar maxima while cultural flourishing usually distinctly near to solar minima.

This conclusion is based on the level of statistical significance alpha=0.05” (Mikulecký, 2007).3


Space Weather

When we talk about ‘Space Weather’ we’re discussing the conditions on the Sun and in the solar wind, which contains charged plasma that is emanating away from the Solar surface and stretching all the way out past Pluto.

In this space, charged ions are all flowing along electromagnetic currents, tethers that are connecting each planet to the Sun.

Known as the Interplanetary Magnetic Field, this dynamo of sphere magnets (planets) revolving around one central, powerful sphere magnet (the Sun) makes up the protective shell of our Solar System known as the Heliosphere.

The Earth has its own protective interface from the various effects of Space Weather, called the Magnetosphere.

According to the European Space Agency, there are concerns the “force that protects our planet is weakening and may even be on the verge of reversing polarity. Over the last 150 years, the magnetic field has lost about 15% of its strength.”4

But that’s not all. This decline in Magnetospheric strength on Earth has also been accompanied by a weakening in Solar Magnetics,5 as a Sunspot Grand Minima is quite possibly knocking at our door.

Recent research into the modes of Solar Activity have revealed there is, on average, a 400 year Sunspot Grand Minima Cycle,6 with the last one occurring about 400 years ago during what’s commonly referred to as the Maunder Minimum:

During the Maunder Minimum (MM) period extremely few auroras were recorded (Chapman, 1967) suggesting that atmospheric/magnetospheric processes were significantly affected.

Reduced solar irradiance such as during the MM and Dalton Minimum, is correlated with the negative shift of the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO) index leading to enhance north easterly wind which results into cooling of Europe, whereas enhanced solar irradiance is correlated with positive NAO index (Singh et al. 2011).7

Whether or not a Global Warming or a Global Cooling scenario will play-out is still very much ‘up in the air’ (see our article ‘Global Warming or Global Cooling?’ in New Dawn 144), and the proposed, often exaggerated claims of warming proponents attempt to ignore the natural factors and cyclical variations that are taking place, untamed by any of the anthropogenic ‘climate forcing’ factors.

The 11-year Solar Cycle and 22-year Magnetic Cycle will continue to unfold, unhindered, into the foreseeable future; this periodicity was first discovered by H. von Schwabe in 1851.

The Heliosphere and Magnetosphere both protect the Earth from the harsh effects of Galactic Cosmic Rays, which are high-speed energetic particles capable of stripping away the Earth’s Ozone and atmosphere.

Cosmic Rays are thought to induce cloud formation in the lower atmosphere8 and charge-up lightning strikes, thereby impacting regional temperatures.

Both the Heliosphere and Earth’s Magnetosphere are stronger during Solar Maximum (offering more protection from Galactic Cosmic Rays) and weaker during Solar Minimum (offering less protection from the harmful effects of Cosmic Rays).

This inverse relationship between Solar Activity (SA) and Cosmic Ray Activity (CRA) has been well-established in scientific literature.

What this means is that whenever SA is high, CRA will be low, and vice versa, whenever SA is low, CRA will be high.

A coronal mass ejection (CME) is a massive burst of solar wind and magnetic fields rising above the Sun’s corona or being released into space.

A danger arises when these are directed towards Earth, and the term geoeffectiveness is used when determining a CME’s ability to generate geomagnetic storms on Earth.

An important aspect of geoeffective CMEs is how large of a Forbush decrease (drop in galactic cosmic radiation) they produce.

In the 2005 NASA article ‘Who’s Afraid of a Solar Flare?’, Dr. Tony Phillips wrote that

Magnetic fields deflect charged particles, so when a CME sweeps past Earth, it also sweeps away many of the electrically-charged cosmic rays that would otherwise strike our planet. This is the ‘Forbush decrease’.9

Large CMEs that become geoeffective often spark geomagnetic storms, which are marked by the appearance of the Aurora Borealis throughout the Auroral Ovals, which circle both of Earth’s polar regions and expand towards the equator during intense magnetic storms.

A geomagnetic storm induced blackout was the case in 1989, after a large Earth-directed solar flare occurred on Friday, 10 March, which reached the Earth on Monday, 13 March 1989.

The most significant damage occurred to Canada’s Hydro-Québec power utility grid, which crashed “when safety systems sensed a power overload caused by the currents pulsing through the ground.”10

These ‘ground induced currents’ knocked out electricity for nine hours to as many as six million people in northeastern Canada.

We know for a fact that extreme geomagnetic storms can induce ground currents that will affect all of sorts of sensitive electronics.



Effects on the Human Body

There are a wide variety of effects that Space Weather exerts on the electricity of the brain, heart and central nervous system inside of our own bodies.

Recent research suggests the solar wind actually modulates lightning intensity here on Earth, and that an, “increase in Galactic Cosmic Ray flux may directly trigger lightning through ‘runaway breakdown’ of electrons, leading to breakdown (Roussel-Dupré et al 2008)” (Scott et al. 2014).11

This is important given that, according to NASA, at any moment “2,000 thunderstorms roll over Earth, producing some 50 flashes of lightning every second.

Each lightning burst creates electromagnetic waves that begin to circle around Earth captured between Earth’s surface and a boundary about 60 miles up…”12 and lightning is associated with local emission of photons.

The Schumann Resonances (SR) are a set of frequencies ranging from 3 Hz to 60 Hz, increasing in 6.5 Hz intervals, with the ‘fundamental’ frequency of the Schumann Resonance standing at 7.83 Hz.

The Schumann Resonances are easily detectable on any planet on which lightning takes place, and so far the SR signals have been detected on Venus, Mars, Titan, Jupiter and Saturn.

In the paper “Schumann Resonance Frequencies Found Within Quantitative Electroencephalographic Activity: Implications for Earth-Brain Interactions,” Dr. Michael Persinger discusses the “bulk velocity of action potentials within the cerebral cortices, the approximate standing wave or resonance for a 60 cm circumference skull would be ~7.5 Hz.

This bulk velocity would require ~20 to 25 milliseconds to traverse the cerebral length and is equivalent to about 40 to 45 Hz” (Persinger 2014).13 This 40 to 45 Hz band is the classic frequency associated with ‘consciousness’, as well as other complex biological functions.

It is apparent that disruptions in the Schumann Resonances via external factors, such as natural variations in Space Weather intensity, can have a profound impact on the physiological and psychological health of an organism.

The brain is a “massive source of extremely-low-frequency (ELF) signals that get transmitted throughout the body via the nervous system, which is sensitive to magnetic fields. Brainwaves and natural biorhythms can be affected by external factors” (Babayev & Allahverdiyeva 2007).14



The late Dr. Neil Cherry wrote:

The first five Schumann Resonances coincide with the frequency range of the first four EEG bands.

The primary EEG bands are: Delta 0.5 to 4 Hz, Theta 4-8 Hz, Alpha 8-13 Hz and Beta 13 to 30 Hz (Malmivuo & Plonsey 1995). Hence resonant absorption and reaction is biophysically plausible…” (Cherry 2001).15

Dr. Cherry had collected and conducted research showing that the effects to human health via solar and geomagnetic activity (S-GMA) are biophysically possible through changes in Schumann Resonance intensity. The effects include,

altered blood pressure and melatonin, increased cancer, reproductive, cardiac and neurological disease and death.

Many occupational studies have found that exposure to ELF fields between 16.7 Hz and 50/60 Hz significantly reduces melatonin levels (Cherry 2001).

Melatonin is a potent anti-oxidant with receptors in every major organ, and it is released from the pineal gland when the natural boundary of light is missing.16

Melatonin production peaks at night, around 4 am when the temperature is at its lowest and the melatonin level is at its highest.

The variable changes in Space Weather and solar wind parameters lead to perturbations in the environmental electromagnetic fields, certain frequencies of which can “significantly alter the cellular calcium ion fluxes and Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) waves in brain tissue” (Cherry 2001).17

The collected evidence reveals that the effects can go from environmental ULF/ELF signals to directly altering our cellular calcium ion homeostasis, which is capable of altering primate and human EEG waves, thereby affecting cell-to-cell communication and impacting reaction times.

There is evidence that “at days with high neutron activity (CRA) there were more medical emergencies and more deaths… A strong trend of Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) (mostly of fatal cardiac arrhythmia, fibrillation) occurred more often on days of high CRA (neutron activity)” (Stoupel et al. 2014).

During periods of low Solar Activity and ‘zero’ geomagnetic activity, data showed that those at risk were more likely to die of SCD; this illustrates the inverse correlation between Solar Activity and Cosmic Ray Activity.

On the other hand, in the scientific paper “Geomagnetic Storms Can Trigger Stroke,” the authors purpose was to present evidence for the impact of geomagnetic activity on stroke occurrence, which has been “limited and controversial.”

They conclude that, “Geomagnetic storms are associated with increased risk of stroke and should be considered along with other established risk factors” (Feigin et al. 2014).18

Perhaps it is the balance, the middle ground, which is most prevalent compared to high Solar Activity and CRA, which are short-term events and less prevalent than active conditions.

Previous research shows that geomagnetic variations of a solar origin have been correlated with enhanced anxiety, sleep disturbances, altered moods, and greater incidences of psychiatric admissions (Persinger, 1987).19

Babayev and Allahverdiyeva’s findings indicate, “there were an indisposition, weakness and presence of indistinct localised headaches during the days with severe Geomagnetic Storms in experiment participants.”

They concluded that “geomagnetic disturbances affect mainly the emotional and vegetative sphere of human beings… changes in geomagnetic conditions mostly affect the activity of the regulating systems of the right hemisphere and the ability to adapt to changes in a physical environment.”

There have been numerous papers that explore even more connections between human health and energy from space.

Infant mortality, suicide, traffic accidents, crime rates, and numerous other significant events and human conditions have been statistically matched with fluxes in solar and cosmic energy.

Although this field of study is by no means new, it is just now becoming accepted, understood, and investigated in a serious manner.

          Morning and Evening Routines   
Recently, the idea of daily practice was brought up again, in one of my groups.  This is something that comes up fairly regularly in many different places, and something that I've responded to in various degrees of thoroughness many times over the years.  But I thought I'd make a proper write up about my morning and evening routines!

My evening routine started amazingly enough, back in grade school.  I was part of the Signet program, which was an advanced program where once a week we were bused to another school and we got to take fun courses (like sign language or horses).  One of the courses I took was Tai Chi.  This was where I got my introduction to quite a lot of things:  breathing practice, meditation, visualization.

One of the practices we learned was one of relaxation.  You would first go through and tense and then relax all the major muscles of the body.  Then you would go back through and use visualization to further relax them.  I always saw it as painting my body, with a thick, cool paint.  As this was a relaxation technique, I started doing it at night, when I was in bed, right before I went to sleep.

I did this on and off, for many years, and this basic relaxation technique went through many incarnations.  For a while I used a similar brushing visualization, that was more detailed, and would focus on all the major joints and connections in the body as well as the larger areas.

When I was in high school, I read a book (called Life 101 if I remember correctly), that talked about creating a mental sanctuary.  This was a place, in your head, that had many rooms.  There was a media room, with a big projection screen, where you could load up a recording of any experience you had been through and replay it.  There was a medical room, that was filled with whatever kind of medicines, staff or machines you felt you needed to heal your body.  There was a personal room, that was a place you could go to relax and feel safe.  There was an outfit room, which had all kinds of clothes, so you could 'step into' any kind of personality or role you might need that day.  And there was a doorway through which you could invite anyone you wanted, and have conversations or work out issues with them.

I built up my own mental sanctuary, though I think of it as an astral temple, and personalized all my rooms.  This was a place that I went to every night.  I often would visualize being in my medical room while doing my relaxation exercises.  This also led to me working with affirmations in the form of potions.  I had things that I would want to call into my life, so I created potions (in my medical room) that would fit.  I sometimes struggle falling asleep, so I wanted to have an affirmation about falling asleep and waking up refreshed. 

The reason I decided to go with a potion image was that it incorporated many senses.  As I was creating them myself, I could add ingredients (no matter how fantastical) that fit my needs.  So my sleep potion included milk, moonbeams and chamomile.  Each potion I made had a purpose, had ingredients, had a scent, a look and a mouth feel.  I later added special bottles to keep them in, which were all different as well.  Every night I would say my affirmation, see the bottle, smell the potion, and then drink it, tasting and feeling it.

I recently swapped up from the potion idea to a clothing one.  Many of my affirmations have become like shielding during the day, so I think of them in terms of armor that I might wear to protect myself. 

As my night time routine grew, I also started to develop a morning routine.  It started with just Sun Salutation, but I soon added some simple Tai Chi stretches and meditation, as well as prayers.

Right now my morning routine starts by Greeting the Day.  This is a prayer based off of an old Norse prayer, and I saw a modified version (it is of course translated into English, so some of the words are different I believe) that I liked.  This is what I say:

"Hale Dagr, Hale sons of Dagr
To Nott and her daughters Hale,
With loving eyes gaze upon us
and here sitting grant us weal.
Hale to the Reign and Hale the the Alfar
and Hale to the bounteous mother Jorth and Nerthus
Words and Wisdom grant us
And praiseworthy deeds
And healing hands, while we live."

The word hale not only indicates a greeting, but also a wish of health and wellness, which I think is lovely.  So I greet the day (Dagr) and night (Nott), and ask they look upon us with love and blessings of health.  I left it in the plural, because I think of my morning prayers as speaking for my household.  Then you greet the gods (Reign and Alfar, though Alfar could also include elves and/or fae), and the earth (Jorth and Nerthus).  I like the feel of this prayer, and the fact that it speaks to my Norse leanings.  I say it while looking out my back window, at the field behind my apartment.  It gives me a moment of connection with nature and what is going on in the world that day (weather/season wise).

After that, I do my Tai Chi stretches.  I do one called Lifting the Sky alternating with one that I call Following the Moon (I couldn't find a link to this one, but your hands form a circle like the moon, and you lift them up to the sky, then open your arms wide, sweeping them down until you are touching your toes.  Then put your hands together to make the moon again and reach up to the sky).  After three repetitions of those, I do my Sun Salutations.  I used to do these three times each side, but found it generated too much heat (I don't like to start my day off sweaty, as I'm an evening shower person), so I do it twice, leading once with each leg.  These stretches help me shake off any tightness from sleep and wake up.

Every morning I draw a Futhark Rune, and this I use in my meditation that I do after my Sun Salutation.  I sit in half lotus (because that is my most comfortable sitting position), and take a deep breath.  I start by breathing into the chakra of the day, greeting the deity of the day, and asking to see the wisdom of the rune I drew throughout my day.  I read about working with a different chakra each day a while ago, and that really resonated with me.  I thought about it for a while, and liked how they lined up if I started with Sunday at the base and ended with Saturday at the crown.  This not only fit my understanding of daily energies, but also how my life flows.  So my daily associations are:  Sunday-root-Sunna (Sun), Monday-sacral-Mani (moon), Tuesday-solar plexus-Tyr, Wednesday-heart-Odin, Thursday-throat-Thor, Friday-third eye-Freyja, Saturday-crown-Loki.

Then I do a short loving kindness meditation.  When I do this, I breath up through my spine to my crown along the back of my body, then exhale down through the front of my body into the solar plexus area.  This is a breathing form I learned to help not only regulate personal energy but build up your total energy as well.  I always find it very soothing.  I repeat, "I am full of loving kindness, I am well.  I am peaceful and at ease, I am happy."  This is my favorite version of the loving kindness statement, and I think it really speaks to things I want in my life.  I repeat this three times (three is my own personal power number, and has been special to me since I was a child).

Next come my affirmations and shielding.  With each section I visualize putting on the piece of clothing, and calling upon it to bring the things I am speaking about into my life.  "May my feet take me where I need to go, and protect me from harm along the way."  I am not a fan of shoes, so my foot clothing is a long bandage, wrapped around the arch of each foot, then crossing over and around up the ankle and then tied (sort of like the ties on ballet shoes).  "May my pockets be always full,"  My lower body clothing isn't always the same (and amusingly don't always have pockets), but are often shorts or a wrap skirt.  "May my allure be firmly in my control."  I have always had a strong view of my own sexuality, but sometimes I have trouble with lines being blurred and not being able to create the boundaries I should....so this affirmation is about being the master of my own body and my sexuality (and not being the victim of it).  This affirmation goes with a wrap shirt. 

"May I have the strength to do what is necessary, and the courage to do what is right."  This affirmation actually goes with two daggers, which I see as tattoos on my arms.  The left one (for what is necessary) is a black dagger, and the right one (for what is right) is pure silver.  These represent the hard choices we have to make.  I think there are a lot of things in life that we have to do because they are necessary, but they aren't always pleasant and they may have repercussions...but we do them anyways because we have to.  On the other end of the spectrum, the 'right' action, the moral choice, the choice we can live with ourselves when we make it has it's own struggles.  So I have two reminders to be strong and brave and make the right choices.  "May my hands act upon my will."  My hand clothing is another bandage wrap (like you might use for martial arts) or lace up finger-less gloves.  I have a thing about my fingers being free (I am a very touch-heavy person).  This affirmation is a reminder to act with intent, so I am not taking actions that are thoughtless.

"My guardians are always at my back."  This one is another weapon, a sword this time.  I have always been a tool-loving person, and a blade-gal, so it never surprised me that my protections include multiple blades.  This one becomes a tattoo on my back, with the hilt up at my neck, running down my spine.  It is a reminder that I am never alone.  I have lots of people who have my back, both human people and spirit people.  "I am always of the shadows, and only show what needs to be seen."  I've been a people watcher all my life, it's something that I love doing.  People fascinate me, and many times I am quite content to stick to the sidelines and observe.  But I also think of my path as being shadow based:  not quite light and not dark, but somewhere in the misty middle.  I think that life is complicated and things aren't always as clear cut as they appear.  I have many sides to me, and I become who I need to be in the moment.  This affirmation goes with a hooded cloak.  "My mind questions all that is."  This affirmation is tied to a simple silver circlet.  I am always looking to learn, and I think that when we stop asking questions we stop thinking for ourselves.  It is through the asking, the seeking, that we find the truth.

The last part of my morning routine is a modification of an incantation know as the "Sith Galdor" from an eleventh-century manuscript.  I changed the wording from God to Odin, as I felt it more suited the piece and my own practice.

"With this sphere, I gird me round
By Odin's grace may I be bound
Against sore stitch, against sore bite
Against all horrors that haunt the night
'Gainst dread that folk fear everywhere
and loathy things that here would fare
Sig-galdur I chant; a sig-rod is my stay
Word-sig and work-sig ward today
No nightmare do my spirit harm
No foes oppress nor fear alarm
Nor wight nor weather threaten me
From danger defended I will be
I bid great Odin victory give
Guarded so, safe shall I live."

As I say this I either do or visualize specific movements.  The first line I trace a clockwise circle around myself, and on the second line I open my arms wide to the sky and then cross them over my chest.  During the third and fourth lines, I turn to each of the four directions in turn and trace a Sowilo rune (like a jagged S or lightning sign, it's the rune associated with Sig in the chant).  I repeat those sets of movements twice more, and finish with a final circle and arms open then crossed.  This incantation to me protects against so many things, and it is my regular daily protection.  In the same book I read about this (Trance-portation) two shorter centering chants are given for practice, and I really liked them, so they have sort of stayed in my practice long after I was done trying them out.

"North and South,
East and West,
In the center,
I find my rest."

"Before me,
Beside me,
Behind me,
Beside me,
Above me,
Below me,
Within me,
Without."

I absolutely love both of those, they are simple and just feel right to me.  After that, I often sit and just breathe for a few moments, or say any other affirmations I'm working with.  And that is my morning routine...which really isn't as long as it sounds, I swear!

At night, I have a different routine.  It starts with checking the doors.  I have a chant I say at the front and back doors (our only two that lead outside), but I also physically check to make sure they are locked.  At the back door I say:

"Night has fallen, Day is flown
Holy Frigga, bless our home
With joy and laughter, love and song,
Frigga keep our family strong."

The back door is by the kitchen, and I feel Frigga would be most at home here, and in many ways it is the heart of the house, so I feel this part fit this door.  At the front door I say:

"Night has fallen, Day is flown
Holy Hammer, ward our home
From trolls and thurses- Thunor keep
Our family safe that we may sleep."

Thurses are giants, and Thunor is another name for Thor.  To me, the front door needs a stronger protection, so I like this one here.  After warding the doors, I'll brush my teeth, and head to bed.  If I am alone, I will light a candle on my bedroom altar and do my prayers, but if hubby is home, I do them later.  For me, prayer is a deeply personal and private thing.  It's not that hubby wouldn't give me privacy, but more that I just feel like it needs to be something that is just between me and Odin (he is who I pray to at night).  So it feels right to do prayers out loud when I am alone, and in my  head when I am not.

My prayers to Odin are not a rehearsed thing.  I rarely ask for anything other than strength for a difficult task ahead or guidance about something I might be unsure about.  Most of my prayers are me talking:  about how my day went, about things that are coming up or about anything else that might be on my mind.  I struggled with prayer for a long time, and part of it was that I didn't feel my relationship with the deities I worked with really fit well with petition prayers or adoration prayers or any of the other types of prayer I was familiar with.  Instead, I fell to conversation.  To me, my relationship with Odin is more like that of father/daughter than anything else, so I talk to him, and I share my life with him.  I always end my prayers with some silence, some time to just be open.  A good friend of mine once said that when we pray we should leave as much time for silence as we spent talking:  to let the gods speak back.  That thought really stuck with me.

Once I am in bed, I start by recalling my energy.  This was something I read about a while back, and I feel it is especially important for me as I am highly emphatic, and often end up spreading myself pretty thin if I'm not careful.  So I call back all my loose energy, not only energy that I have sent to other people or places, but energy that is invested in random projects, things unfinished or whatever else it may be tied up with.  For this I say, "I cut all cords that tie me down."  The image of cutting cords works for me. 

I follow it up with, "I release all energy that is not mine."  The mental image for this is my own energetic body, but looking for bits of energy that don't match the rest.  My favorite analogy is that of a puzzle...with pieces that don't belong.  I see my own energy as a black and silver smoke, with the smell of rain and a match that was just extinguished.  So I look for energy that doesn't match and let it go back to whomever it came from.  I think we pick up energy all the time, from things we touch or things we interact with (even digitally).  And holding on to energy that isn't ours can make us feel unbalanced or lead to feelings and issues that aren't ours.

The last step of this process is recalling my own energy.  "And recall all energy that belongs to me."  This is one of the reasons why I use the cutting cord analogy.  By both releasing the extra energy (which also makes room for my own), and recalling mine, I am really shepherding my energetic body and thoughts.  I don't like the idea of leaving bits of myself all over, so I call them back.  If I think of a puzzle with mismatched parts for the releasing section, for recalling I think of filling up any places that are still empty.

This three-fold process serves as centering for me, and I follow it with a quick chakra balancing.  In the morning I focus on just one, whatever the chakra of the day is, but at night, I run through them all quickly.  I use a very simple mantra for each, one inhale and one exhale.  I start at the root and work my way up to the crown.  "I am, I feel, I do, I love, I express, I perceive, I comprehend."

After that I do a sort of reverse shielding.  I think that I need different things at night, the things I protect against during the day are not needed at night.  So I work my way through the protections I put up in the morning and take them off.  At night, I start at my head and work my way down to my feet.

"My mind is calm and at piece."  I take off the circlet.  If there is one thing that tends to keep me from sleep it is when my mind gets caught up in thinking about something.  It could be a worry, it could be excitement about something that is happening the next day, or just an idea that I had that leads to lots of crazy thought.  So if I can get my mind quiet and calm, that leads to a more peaceful night.  "I take down any masks I put up during the day."  I see myself taking off a mask (like a harlequin mask), and the hooded cloak.  I think that we all wear different masks in different situations.  But at night, I don't need them. "My guardians watch over me while I sleep."  I actually don't remove the sword, but I touch it as a reminder that it is always there.

"My hands lay down their burdens and rest."  This is a reminder that my work is done for the day, and that it is time to sleep.  I take off the gloves.  "May my will," I touch the left knife tattoo, "and my honor," I touch the right tattoo, "be at peace."  I cross my arms so the tattoos touch.  This is a reminder that both halves of me need to work together.  "May my body be rested and innocent as a child's."  I think there is something really special about watching a child sleep.  They seem to be completely out, and almost always wake with boundless energy, so that is how I want to sleep too.  I also want to embrace that innocent body sense that children have, before they have woken to the idea of sexuality.  Night seems the right time to call this forth, especially as I remove the shirt.

"May I not be concerned with monetary or physical problems."  This affirmation is tied to my pants, as that is where my pockets are, and the physical problem part often refers to body problems in my mind.  Money is definitely one of the things I think about a lot, and this just reminds me that I don't need to stress out about it.  Worry doesn't help solve things, and letting my thoughts dwell on problems just creates more problems.  "May my feet rest along their path."  As I take off the foot wrappings, I remind myself again, that the work of the day is done and it's time to stop and rest.

This is where I will pray, if I haven't done so already.  The last thing I do at night is pick some kind of little story to play with.  This is something I started doing in car rides, where I would make up a situation and just let it play out, with myself as one of the characters in the story.  At night, I may do that, or I may play with a story I'm working on writing.  It's just a little pre-dream play (sometimes the stories do end up transitioning right into dreams), that lets me drift off easily.  I find it works better for me than trying to clear my mind.  It gives me a soft mental focus, something easy to play around with, something fun, that distracts me from any deep thinking (which typically keeps me awake).

Again, my night time routine isn't nearly as long to do as it is to explain, Whew!  But what I really love about it is that it is completely portable and discrete.  I've done a version of it for over two decades now, and it is my one constant practice that I do everywhere.  The only times I skip it are when I am so exhausted that I literally fall asleep as soon as I hit the bed...and even then, I almost always get the first bit done.  It gives me a great sense of comfort to have that continual practice, even if many of the details have changed many times over the years.
          Working with eggs!   
I've been doing some research for this month's Witchy Children story (my reward for Patrons who pledge $5 a month over at my Patreon site....check it out and consider pledging if you enjoy my work!)  It doesn't matter what I'm writing, whether it is fiction or not, I like to start from a factual standpoint, and then get creative.

So I've been doing a lot of reading about eggs (and chickens...but this post is about eggs), not only how they have been used magically, but how they form and develop.  This kind of thing  fascinates me.

I've worked with eggs and egg parts before, and thought I knew a decent amount about eggs, and yet as I was writing, I'd come up with a thought and realize I wasn't sure about it, so I'd have to go look it up.  Just like many modern city dwellers, we buy our eggs from the grocery store, so use unfertilized white (and washed) eggs.

There is an urban myth that brown eggs are healthier than white eggs, but the color of a chicken's egg is actually determined by it's breed, and no color is innately healthier than the others.  Not only that, but all chicken eggs start out white, and the color occurs because of pigments that get added as the egg travels through the chicken on it's way to being laid.  I found it really neat that green/olive eggs come from a mix of blue and brown egg laying breeds.

Egg shells are the thing I use most in my work.  I started saving egg shells many years ago after coming across a recipe for egg shell chalk.  The recipe I use is pretty simple:  the shells from 5 eggs (about 1 Tbsp worth of ground shell), 1 tsp flour and one tsp hot water.  You can add food coloring and ground herbs as well (just try to keep the consistency similar to the base recipe).  Mix all the ingredients together and then roll into a stick and let dry (or press into whatever shape you want).

I love magical chalk.  You can use it to draw symbols or to mark boundaries.  Depending on what you add to your chalk base, you can adjust the properties of the chalk, making it more tuned to different energies.  I make a basic cleansing chalk with sage and salt.  You could also make small sculptures from this chalk recipe, like you would salt dough, but with the added qualities of protection or healing from the egg shell.

Since I started making the egg shell chalk, I have been saving my egg shells when I cook with eggs.  I simply rinse them out in the sink (pulling out as much of the inner membrane as I can), and then let them dry.  I rough crunch them (just breaking them up with my hand) and keep them in a small container until I am ready to grind them.  Then I use my mortar and pestle and grind them into a find powder and keep them in a final jar.  You can also toast them in the oven if you want a bit of fire in your powder (be careful not to burn them, the smell is not pleasant!)

You don't have to throw out that membrane either!  It can be used fresh for healing, as it has antimicrobial properties and aids in healing small scrapes and cuts.  Put the wet side down onto the cut, and let it dry on your skin.  You can even use it to help draw out splinters or small pieces of glass that might have gotten stuck in your skin.  The method is the same, put the wet side down on top of the thing you want drawn out (some even use this for pimples/blackheads), and let it dry.  As it dries, it should help pull out the intruder!

Because of these properties, I also started saving the membranes when I save my egg shells.  I wash the membrane (to get all the actual egg off of it) if I am going to save it, and let it dry really well.  Then I can use it for healing spells or to remove unwanted things in my life.

When I first read about using an egg for cleansing, by drawing out bad energies from the body, it was in a fictional story.  The character doing the cleansing was in a pinch, and grabbed a hard boiled egg from the breakfast table, running it over the body of the person who was cursed, to draw the curse into the egg.  It mentioned that afterwards, you could break the egg into a glass of water to divine more about what is going on (which didn't work as the egg was cooked!)  But this practice is based off of a Mesoamerican healing technique.

A similar method is to keep an egg by your bed for seven days, then break it into a river or bury it (to take the negativity away from you).  This sort of cleansing can be extended beyond people, using the egg as a vessel to draw out negative energies from pets or even from places.  If you want to break the egg and interpret the insides, pour the egg into water and read the shapes it forms (much like you might read tea leaves).  I would definitely recommend disposing of the egg, treating it like something you are banishing, so that any negative energy that it has absorbed will not linger.

Eggs can easily be used for divination as well.  You can absolutely break an egg into a bowl of water and interpret it for other inquiries (not just as part of a cleansing).  Another way eggs were historically read was to paint or color them and then heat them and read the cracks on the shell (if your egg doesn't naturally form cracks in the shell, charge it with your question and then smack it on a hard surface!) 

A group I worked with many years ago had a really nice practice during their Ostara ritual, where they had a bowl of hard boiled eggs, and it was passed around, and everyone present drew some kind of symbol or word on the egg in white crayon (so it was invisible).  Later in the ritual, everyone drew an egg at random from the bowl.  We dyed the eggs, so the symbols appeared, which would then be something for you to consider or something that would be coming into your life (and we ate the eggs to further take that energy into ourselves).

Hard boiled eggs spin very well, so you could even draw a circle with different outcomes around the edge, then spin your egg to find the answers (either draw a mark on one end of the egg, or read where the smaller side of the egg points).

There is a really pretty Chinese food called Tea Eggs.  You start with a hard boiled egg, and crack the shell but don't peel it.  After letting the egg cool a little, you simmer it for about twenty minutes in a mixture of tea and/or spices (common spices include:  soy sauce, cinnamon, star anise, fennel seeds, cloves and peppercorns).  This creates a dark brown liquid that will stain the eggs, and the cracked shell creates a pretty pattern.  The eggs are left to steep in the cool liquid in the fridge for an additional couple of hours (or longer).  This could easily be adapted, picking the tea and spices based on what magical intention you wish to infuse your eggs with.  You could also interpret the shapes made by the cracks on the shell as part of your working!

Because of the color and shape of the egg yolk, they are often associated with the sun.  We see remnants of this in how we order fried eggs:  sunny side up or sunny side down.  You can use the yolk as part of any working to do with the sun, or eat eggs as part of a Sabbat celebration to welcome the sun back during Yule (or to honor the height of solar energy at Midsummer)

In some cultures, the egg was seen as a model of the world, or creation.  You can find all four elements in the egg.  The shell is earth, and the yolk is fire (because of the connection with the sun).  The white of the egg represents water.  The membrane is air, since as the egg matures it creates an air pocket inside the egg (on the larger side of the egg, between the white and the shell...which is why hard boiled eggs often have that depression on their 'bottom')  Also:  food safety tip!  As an egg gets older, that air section gets bigger, which creates buoyancy in an egg.  A very fresh egg will lay on it's side in a glass of water.  The older the egg gets, the more the bottom of the egg will start to lift towards the surface.  When the egg floats, it may no longer be safe to eat.

Segunda Parte (2/2)


Despertó empapado en un cuarto oscuro y húmedo, su mandíbula estaba hinchada y le dolía. Al moverse se dio cuenta que estaba encadenado.

Se abrió una puerta y una luz cegadora le enfocó los ojos.

-Buenos días señor Mills- dijo una voz desde atrás de la luz – Le extrañará el motivo del porqué lo tenemos cautivo acá. Pues no tardará mucho en saberlo. Sólo queremos conversar un poco con usted, eso es todo. Mientras sea amable y coopere todos estaremos felices.

Trató de hablar pero tenía una mordaza en su boca, al ver sus esfuerzos para emitir palabras unas manos se la sacaron.

-Que quieren saber de mí, no soy más que un hombre común y corriente-

-Claro que es usted un hombre común y corriente, pero la información que posee no lo es. Usted sabe mucho señor, talvez desconozca el potencial de sus conocimientos. Nuestro planeta está en jaque, y usted lo sabe. Sí, sabemos mucho, tenemos buenos informantes dentro del gobierno- replicó la voz.

-La Tierra siempre ha estado en jaque, desde sus inicios, cometas enormes han pasado a pocos kilómetros de impactarnos y aniquilar cualquier vida en el planeta. Eso no está en discusión-

-No se haga el estúpido señor Mills, que no lo es. Sabemos que planean un ataque nuclear masivo contra la resistencia, lo que no sabemos es cuando. Debemos sabotearlo. Millones morirán y la vida nunca volverá a ser la misma, miles de especies quedarán extintas para siempre-

-No todas. Hace un par de años que la opción de un ataque nuclear se barajaba dentro de nuestras carpetas, por lo que convocamos un comité de biólogos para que realizaran un muestrario universal de ADN animal y vegetal para poder clonar dichas especies en caso de un cataclismo nuclear- dijo Stuart, y escupió sangre luego de terminar.

-Astuto plan de su parte. Pero ese no es el punto. Stuart, sabemos donde se encuentra tu familia, no quisimos traerlos acá, sabíamos que tú hablarías con nosotros, eres astuto Stuart, no hagas que sometamos a tu familia a tal estrés- un tono malévolo se había apoderado de la voz misteriosa.

Stuart no estaba nervioso, lo habían sedado, le habían advertido que esto podía pasar en casos como este.

-Está bien, sean precisos, les diré todo lo que sé-

El hombre rió. –Muy bien. Necesitamos saber cuando se efectuará este ataque y donde se encuentran los silos lanza misiles-

-Será mañana, alrededor de las 10 PM. Hay un plano, pero no lo tengo aquí, eso no está a mí alcance, lo poseen los militares-

-¿Dentro de un día? Ustedes están locos, nos queda muy poco tiempo para reaccionar.

-Así sería más eficaz. Cualquier fuga de información tendría el factor tiempo en contra, y al ver su reacción, parece que nuestras medidas surtieron efecto. Ahora dígame quién es usted, yo ya le he dicho lo que quería saber. Es mi turno de saber-

El foco se apartó de su cara y pudo ver, medio a ciegas, un rostro. Era de un miembro de un grupo insurreccionista, habían cometido atentados en el pasado y asesinado miembros del gobierno. Ellos se atribuyeron el ocultado asesinato del presidente. Tenía una AK-47 en su mano y dos hombres a su lado le apuntaban con las mismas armas.

-Mi nombre es Connor. Eso es todo lo que necesitará saber. Ahora usted es parte de nuestra misión. Usted sabe nuestro propósito, usted será el último que nos vea con vida si es que sacrificamos nuestras vidas, a lo mejor en vano. Pero no nos importa. Ahora le soltaremos, hemos hecho esto por un motivo, y es que usted entienda el riesgo que corre la especie humana, al igual que toda vida en la Tierra. Ahora usted será nuestro miembro en el gobierno, usted ya no será el mismo, usted ya no lo es.-

En ese instante se acercó otro hombre y drogó a Stuart con una potente dosis de Narcozim. Luego lo vendaron y quedó inconsciente.

Despertó frente a su casa, dentro de una bolsa de basura. Miró su reloj y ya era el otro día, estaba atardeciendo. Los botones se empezarían a apretar luego.

Entro a su casa en un estado deplorable, la cabeza le dolía producto de la sobredosis inducida de Narcozim. Bajo al sótano y cerró la escotilla. Estaba sólo con pantalones. Tiritando gateo por los totalmente oscuros pasillos hasta encontrar la sala común. No escuchaba nada, no veía nada. Sólo las linternas abandonadas en el medio de la sala. De pronto escucho unos gemidos, pescó una linterna y fue a investigar. Encontró a Philip llorando en un rincón, tiritando.

-¿Philip, qué te pasa, donde están todos?-

-No fue mi culpa, lo juro- dijo Philip mientras miraba la pared.

-¿Culpa de que Philip, que pasó?-

-Se querían ir, todos. Tenían miedo al igual que yo. Pero no, no los dejé, me cegué, sí, me cegué. Tuve que hacerlo “Stu”, tuve que hacerlo-

-¡Por la mierda Philip dime que has hecho!-

-¡Tuve que matarlas “Stu”, maté a tus hijas y a tu esposa, luego maté a mi familia y a Carol y a Anne y a sus hijas, me gritaban “Stu” me volvieron loco. Aquí encerrado, con este aire, con cuatro paredes, son sólo esas putas luces de neón!-

Stuart se volvió loco, su sangre hirvió. Pesco la cabeza de Philip y la azotó contra la pared mientras emitía gemidos agonizantes. Sonaba como se rompía su cráneo y hacía eco en toda la sala. El sonido amplificado era atroz, pero le daba más vida a los ataques de Stuart. Cuando vio que los sesos yacían regados por varios metros a la redonda Stuart se calmó un poco. No estaba triste, no estaba inquieto. Pensó bien y llegó a la conclusión de que había matado a Philip por el hecho de que él las había matado, cosa que no le correspondía. Se hecho ahí, a pensar, y se quedó dormido.

En su sueño veía a una mujer, y él la amaba, era su fantasía, su todo. Eran felices ambos, enamorados de pies a cabeza, hasta que un auto la atropellaba y moría. Stuart lloraba en el sueño, en una plaza, y se le acercó una mujer a consolarlo. En medio de su pena Stuart se enamoró de nuevo y aquella mujer también lo hizo. Fueron felices durante un tiempo hasta que mientras dormían un ladrón mató y violó a su esposa en el sueño, y esto se repetía muchas veces.

Stuart se despertó inquieto, sin saber porqué. Miró su reloj y eran las 11 PM, el ataque ya había empezado hace más de una hora. Talvez la mitad del planeta estaba en ruinas, talvez no. Talvez bombas se dirigían hacía allí.

Se sintió retumbar toda la tierra, todo el lugar crujió. Sabía lo que ocurría. Cogió una lámpara y corrió hasta la escotilla que daba a su casa. Estaba atascada. Chequeó los ductos de ventilación y estaban bloqueados. Le quedaba aire sólo para unas horas.

Revisó en los bolsillos de Philip y encontró Narcozim. Lo tomó y cayó en un estado de sopor.

Comenzó a sentir que le faltaba el aire, pensó que todo debía ser un sueño. Que talvez toda la vida era una máscara, que talvez alguien lo despertaría ahora y le diría que todo fue una pesadilla. Pero nada de eso ocurriría, y él lo sabía. Su encuentro con la muerte era inminente. El momento que está predestinado cada ser humano desde antes de ser concebido como embrión. Nuestra condición de seres mortales es lo que nos hace débiles, frágiles. Es por eso que debemos destruir y matar a otros para sentirnos poderosos. Que sentido tendrían las guerras y las armas si fuésemos inmortales. Pero las manecillas del reloj siguen dando vueltas, y no se pueden detener. Al pensar esto Stuart lloraba, pero no de tristeza, sino de impotencia, impotencia de saber lo que estaba pasando afuera, algo que él había hecho que pasara, incluso él había dado la idea. Empezó a perder la cordura, rasguñaba las paredes. Sus uñas se rompieron y sus dedos sangraban a borbotones. Llegó hasta el hueso. Nada le importaba, moriría. El mismo sitio que estaba diseñado para salvarle la vida irónicamente se la estaba quitando.

Ahogado y mareado Stuart recordó lo que aquella voz le había dicho en el mismo lugar “no quieras lo que quieras”. Y pensó para sí “quiere todo lo que quieras pero quiere en vano”. Sólo cuando estés seguro de que no quieres lo que quieres, podrás vivir tranquilo, aunque esto sea imposible.

Dicho y pensado esto, su cuerpo inerte cayó al piso. Inexplicablemente, unas ratas aparecieron de la nada y empezaron a devorar su cuerpo.

It was released on World Asteroid Day, which is devoted to raising public awareness of the dangers of asteroids and comets in our cosmic backyard. NASA has actually discovered tens of thousands of asteroids floating around our part of space.

Asteroid Day takes place every June 30, on the anniversary of the Tunguska event, which occurred in 1908. On that day, researchers think a 40-meter-wide space rock entered the atmosphere over Siberia flattening trees for about 800 square miles.  Read more...

          SPRING EQUINOX   

Happy Spring Equinox or Ostara to everyone!




The eclipse at its peak


We had a really Spring day today so we decided to celebrate with some drumming



Nothing better than walk barefoot feeling the connection with Mother Earth


And some more drumming. ...


Today besides being the Spring equinox it was a Solar eclipse and a super new Moon, wow!
Could you feel the powerful energy?
Because I certainly did. First of all, I woke up a lot earlier than I normally do and coulden't get back to sleep at all.

Today it is good to be aware and focus in our dreams, in all what we have been wanting in our lives.
It is a good moment for new beginnings, to take risk and believe that eveything it will work out well. .. FAITH

As the photos show, we were kind of in a celebration mood, but how not to be? it was sunny, warm, Spring it's at last here so. ... what else do you need for a bit of drumming and dancing around barefoot? 


What about you? are you celebrating somehow the beginnings of this new season?

Whatever you are doing or not doing I just want you to be. ..

Very happy!!!

See you all soon!

Love&Light

Lluisa xoxo

SPECIALE GIUGNO – Le foreste pluviali costituiscono il più importante condizionatore d’aria del mondo, capace di trasformare metà dell’energia solare totale che le raggiunge in un’enorme evaporazione di acqua attraverso le foglie e altre superfici, che nella sola Amazzonia è pari a 8000 miliardi di tonnellate di vapore acqueo. La riduzione progressiva delle precipitazioni e l’impatto antropico stanno esponendo la foresta pluviale a quello che viene definito come rischio di progressiva seccagione, dove la perdita di foreste aumenta in conseguenza di ridotte precipitazioni e attività umane. Poter prevedere quali regioni siano più suscettibili a questa perdita è essenziale per prevenire la scomparsa di ulteriore patrimonio forestale: due recenti progetti europei, Robin (Role Of Biodiversity In climate change mitigatioN) e Amazalert, hanno indagato l’importante ruolo della biodiversità per la mitigazione del cambiamento climatico: nel commentare la propria ricerca su Nature Communication, Delphine Clara Zemp, dell’Istituto di Potsdam per la ricerca sull’impatto climatico, in Germania, aveva chiarito che la presenza di molte specie arboree è un buon indicatore delle probabilità di sopravvivenza per le regioni forestali. I ricercatori hanno analizzato la rete dei flussi d’acqua e hanno scoperto che più è diversificata la vegetazione, tanto meno vulnerabile sembra essere alla distruzione. Ogni [...]

Um policial militar, que aguardava o resultado de processo de reforma, foi executado dentro do seu próprio veículo, na Rua Virgílio Brandão, no bairro Autran Nunes, na madrugada de ontem. O corpo do policial tinha oito perfurações de bala, sendo a maioria deles na cabeça.

O soldado Domingos Erialdo Amorim de Oliveira, de 43 anos, era morador do bairro onde foi executado. Ele já foi encontrado sem vida por populares que ouviram os disparos e foram checar o que havia acontecido. A porta do passageiro do veículo do PM, um Chevrolet Corsa, de cor preta, estava aberta, indicando que alguém havia saído do automóvel.

A Polícia Militar foi acionada para isolar a área onde aconteceu o crime e realizar as primeiras diligências, mas nenhum suspeito do homicídio foi localizado, por enquanto. A Perícia Forense do Ceará (Pefoce) realizou levantamentos iniciais do crime e recolheu o corpo do militar até a sede da Coordenadoria de Medicina Legal (Comel).

A Divisão de Homicídios e Proteção à Pessoa (DHPP) também compareceu ao local para iniciar a investigação do caso. "A DHPP é quem vai apurar as causas da morte. O policial foi encontrado com oito perfurações, dentro do seu veículo", afirmou o relações públicas da Polícia Militar do Ceará, tenente-coronel Andrade Mendonça, ao ser indagado sobre as possíveis motivações da execução do soldado.

A Secretaria de Segurança Pública e Defesa Social (SSPDS) também não divulgou qual seria a motivação do crime. "Mais detalhes serão repassados no momento oportuno, para não comprometer o andamento dos trabalhos policiais", afirmou a Pasta, em nota emitida pela assessoria de comunicação.

Ainda conforme o relações públicas da PM, o soldado Domingos Erialdo iniciou, no ano de 2001, um processo de reforma alegando problemas de saúde. Por isto, desde então, está afastado da Corporação.

No ano de 2004, foi julgado incapaz por uma junta de saúde, que constatou que o militar tinha um transtorno mental. A condição de saúde o impedia de exercer suas funções de policial. Atualmente, a vítima aguardava por um despacho do governador sobre sua reforma.

Outro caso

Domingos Erialdo Oliveira é o segundo PM assassinado no bairro Autran Nunes, somente neste mês de junho. O primeiro crime vitimou o também soldado José Roger Marques da Penha, de 45 anos, no dia 14 deste mês.

De acordo com a SSPDS, Penha foi expulso da PM, mas, por meio de uma decisão judicial, conseguiu retornar aos quadros da Instituição e estava na Reserva Remunerada, afastado da ativa, desde junho de 2014. Segundo moradores do Autran Nunes, o policial era usuário de drogas há, pelo menos, 20 anos e vinha sendo ameaçado de morte por traficantes, por causa de dívidas.

Conforme a Associação dos Profissionais de Segurança do Ceará (APS), 17 agentes de segurança foram mortos no Estado, em 2017. A última ocorrência havia sido no dia 24 de junho, quando o sargento Valdimiro Silva, da Reserva Remunerada, foi assassinado em Canindé.

          Galeries comercials de Barcelona, del segle XIX al XXI   
 Passatge Bacardí


La recerca històrica i l'article sobre l'origen dels passatges i les galeries comercials de Barcelona, que podeu llegir tot seguit, ha servit per a la realització d'un reportatge a Betevé, en el qual he col·laborat i que podeu veure clicant l'enllaç "L'ocàs de les galeries comercials".


Les primeres galeries comercials


Les galeries comercials enteses com a passatges coberts destinats als serveis d’oci (cafès, teatres, cinemes) i botigues on s’exposen mercaderies per a la venda apareixen a Europa durant el segle XIX –sobretot durant la Belle Époque, entre l’últim terç del segle XIX i la Gran Guerra (1914-1918)–, en el context de les reformes urbanes que transformen els centres històrics de les ciutats en benefici dels eixamples moderns i els grans bulevards. Són els anys en què les burgesies procedents, en bona part, de la revolució industrial conquereixen nous espais de la ciutat fugint dels centres històrics altament densificats, a causa, principalment, del creixement de la població en uns nuclis que havien estat tancats per muralles. És el cas de Barcelona, on la burgesia que habitava els carrers de Montcada i Ample construiran els seus habitatges en els pobles del Pla, com Sarrià, Sant Gervasi o Horta, i, sobretot, a l’Eixample projectat per Ildefons Cerdà l’any 1859, expansió que va ser possible, precisament, gràcies a l’enderroc de la muralla, iniciat l’any 1854.

Les galeries i passatges coberts vuitcentistes, construïts amb luxoses estructures de ferro i vidre, i posteriorment integrats en la planta baixa dels edificis, permeten garantir l’aïllament dels carrers, cada cop més transitats per ciutadans de tota mena. Tenen, per tant, un component classista, que permet passejar sense barrejar-se amb les classes baixes i subalternes que han conquerit la ciutat. Com deia Walter Benjamin en els seus apunts inacabats sobre els Passagen-Werk (1), la separació dels dos mons s’aconsegueix creant un univers que ens porta directament a l’imaginari dels qui hi passegen a través d’objectes i situacions que componen un collage que ens remet directament a les cambres de meravelles. Si aquestes volien representar el món de les ciències naturals i, per tant, una forma d'ordenat el món, els passatges i les galeries ens porten als productes de consum i als llocs d’oci que recreen un cert luxe i una manera d’entendre la vida dels burgesos.

Un altre símil el podem trobar amb els parcs d’atraccions, que conformen un món tancat que representa de forma simbòlica la vida a través de l’atzar, la fortuna, la por, el cel, l’infern o els laberints. Així ho veia Juan Eduardo Cirlot a Ferias y atracciones (2), mentre els surrealistes, com Aragon, definien els passatges comercials com una exaltació del món de la màgia i la il·lusió, on els productes de consum són fantasmagories perquè van més enllà del seu valor d’ús i de canvi. No serà estrany que moltes d’aquestes galeries hi integrin espectacles com panorames i cinemes. I ho veurem més clar encara si tenim present l’estructura laberíntica que mostren moltes de les galeries comercials que hem conegut, i com, en les darreres dècades, han evolucionat fins a convertir-se en centres comercials i lúdics on és possible –i aquesta és la intenció– passar-hi el dia sencer.

Perquè això sigui possible, però, caldrà arribar a la dècada de 1950, quan després de la Segona Guerra Mundial es produeixi l’esclat definitiu de la societat de consum i veiem aquelles galeries classistes convertides en paradisos d’un consumisme que travessa transversalment totes les classes socials. Es crea entre la classe obrera la il·lusió d’aspirar a classe mitjana, i que aquesta busqui en els usos que fa dels espais comercials i lúdics –com havien fet els burgesos de les galeries del segle XIX– una manera d’integrar-se en l’estructura social conquerint el seu espai. No és res diferent del que passa en la resta de l’espai urbà. Entre finals del segle XIX i principis del XX les masses populars conquerien el Paral·lel –immensa galeria descoberta– al mateix ritme que la burgesia ho feia a l’Eixample. I avui, la gent passeja pel passeig de Gràcia, aparador de mercaderies prohibitives, i fan la despesa al Portal de l’Àngel, continuació natural del passeig de Gràcia amb el Corte Inglés fent-hi de frontissa.


 Passage des Panoramas (París), 1910


La primera galeria comercial va ser la Galerie de Bois o Camp des Tartares, construïda el 1786 pel Duc d'Orléans, en els jardins del Palau Reial de París, i avui desapareguda. Però la més antiga que es conserva és el Passage des Panoramas, construïda el 1799, també a París. Aquesta galeria rep el nom dels panorames instal·lats a l’entrada del Boulevard de Montmartre; uns aparells de grans dimensions anteriors al cinema que permetien des de l’interior d’una rotonda veure imatges de grans ciutats i paisatges del món, creant efectes realistes gràcies a la llum i la perspectiva. Hi havia també una de les entrades al Théâtre des Variétés. París, a més de ser la ciutat precursora d’aquestes construccions, encara conserva més d’una vintena de galeries i va estendre la moda per ciutats com Milà, Nantes, Nàpols, Viena, Praga, Londres, Berlín, Trieste. Brussel·les, Istanbul...

Les galeries comercials de Barcelona al segle XIX

Barcelona també va formar part d’aquella eclosió urbana burgesa, però no ho va fer inicialment en el nou Eixample sinó dins de muralles. Els exemples són pocs i no van reeixir perquè en aquella ciutat de carrers atapeïts i densament poblada l’autèntic nucli comercial de mitjan segle XIX va ser el carrer de Ferran (1827/1876/1910). Els espais guanyats a les edificacions religioses després de les desamortitzacions (Medizábal, 1836; Madoz, 1855) van ser utilitzats per guanyar-hi places o per construir-hi equipaments com el Liceu o el mercat de Sant Josep (Boqueria). Tot i així, són d’aquesta època els passatges Bacardí i del Crèdit, però no tindrem en compte altres passatges com Magarola, Madoz, de la Pau o del Rellotge perquè no s’ajusten a la tipologia, en uns casos perquè no són coberts, d’altres perquè són tancats o perquè no són comercials.


Quiosc a Rambla, davant de l'entrada del
passatge Bacardí, a principis del segle XX


Passatge Bacardí (ca.1850)

Projectat per l’arquitecte Francesc Daniel Molina per encàrrec del propietari Ramon de Bacardí, uneix la Rambla (números 40-42) amb la plaça Reial (1850-1859), en el solar de l'antic convent dels Caputxins, enderrocat el 1836. Abans de construir-hi la plaça va ser lloc habitual d'espectacles de circ ambulant, i entre 1843 i 1848 hi va funcionar el Teatre Nou de Caputxins.

El tram més pròxim a la Rambla suporta l'edifici superior; en canvi, la meitat més pròxima a la plaça Reial està coberta per un envidriat a l'alçada de la coberta, que il·lumina tot l'espai. Una galeria, d’estructura de ferro i totalment envidria, travessa perpendicularment el passatge a mitja alçada.


Consergeria del passatge del Crèdit, 1953
Henri Cartier-Bresson


Passatge del Crèdit (1879)

Projectat per l’arquitecte Magí Rius i Mulet per encàrrec de la Societat Catalana General de Crèdit, l’edifici de què forma part va ser construït en part del solar del Convent de l'Ensenyança, enderrocat entre 1873 i 1874 per permetre enllaçar el carrer de Ferran amb la plaça de Sant Jaume. Aquest passatge és conegut perquè hi va néixer el pintor Joan Miró.

Com es feia al Passage des Panoramas de París, entre 1891 i 1900, al numero 1 del passatge hi va haver el Panorama Imperial, seguint una tradició que ha Barcelona va començar amb l’Exposició Universal de 1888 i que va portar en aquest final de segle diversos panorames de gran format a la ciutat: Waterloo (1888) a la plaça de Catalunya; Plewna (1888-1889) i Setge de París (1889-1890) a la Gran Via amb rambla de Catalunya; o el de les Coves de Mallorca (1888-1889) a Fontanella amb plaça de Catalunya.

passatge del Crèdit, el 1900


Al llarg dels anys, el Panorama Imperial del passatge del Crèdit, acompanyat per música de fonògraf, va anar canviant les vistes estereoscòpiques o diorames per temporades, i el públic va poder veure paisatges urbans i monuments d’Itàlia (Venècia, Milà, Pisa, Roma, Gènova, Florència, Nàpols, Pompeia, Torí), Espanya (Aranjuez, La Granja amb els interiors del Palau d’Isabel de Borbó), Suïssa, Portugal, Àustria, una excursió als Pirineus, Algèria, Tunis, Marroc, Amèrica del Nord, les exposicions universals de Chicago de 1883 i París de 1900, maniobres militares a Alemanya o La Tierra Santa, que el desembre de 1900 s’exhibiria al carrer de Rivadeneyra, enfront de l’església de Santa Anna. La Tierra Santa era un autèntic panorama, realitzat pel pintor italià Surdi, que abastava una superfície aparent de 60 quilòmetres, amb muntanyes, grutes i més de tres-centes figures modelades per escultors italians com Monteverdo, Cifariello, Spalmach o Pescarella, repartides per les poblacions palestines i els llocs més emblemàtics de la història sagrada.

Fins a la Guerra Civil, a la planta baixa al costat de la garita del conserge, hi va haver un gimnàs freqüentat sobretot per boxejadors, tot i que no hi havia ring. El local tenia sortida també pel Pas de l'Ensenyança. També hi va haver, amb entrada per la Baixada de Sant Miquel, la Cereria Lladó, avui convertida en restaurant però conservant bona part de la vella fàbrica d'espelmes.




Passatges reconvertits

Existeixen alguns passatges, com Bernardí Martorell, Sert i Manufactures, que neixen durant la segona meitat del segle XIX, a partir de velles edificacions que han perdut el seu ús original, no com a galeries comercials sinó com a llocs de pas, però que amb el temps aniran adquirint aquest caràcter a mida que s’hi instal·lin comerços.


Passatge de Bernardí Martorell (ca. 1850)

Situat en el carrer de l’Hospital, 99, l’uneix amb el de Sant Rafael. Va ser fruit del tancament de la casa-fàbrica de l’industrial tèxtil que li dóna nom, bastida com a tal l’any 1829 aprofitant una finca anterior. Però la fàbrica tanca el 1849 i els nous habitatges que s’hi construeixen acaben conformant el passatge. No neix com a galeria comercial, però amb el temps s’hi acabarà convertint.

També de la segona meitat del segle XIX són els passatges Sert i Manufactures, que comuniquen el carrer de Trafalgar amb el de Sant Pere més Alt travessant dues antigues fàbriques i salvant el desnivell entre tots dos carrers, produït a causa del graó barceloní, un escarpament geològic que divideix la plana barcelonina en dues parts, i que també podem identificar a l’Estació del Nord o al carrer de Rivadeneyra, que uneix la plaça de Catalunya amb l’església de Santa Anna.


Passatge Sert, 2013 (b/n)
Passió per Barcelona


Passatge Sert (1867)

Amb entrada pels carrers de Sant Pere més Alt, 49-51, i Trafalgar, 38, té el seu origen en la fàbrica de tapissos de Sert Germans i Solà. És un passatge descobert, amb botigues, restaurants i cafès a banda i banda del recorregut.


Passatge de les Manufactures, 2012 (b/n)
Marcel Albet


Passatge de les Manufactures (1876, Indústria fins 1980)

Amb entrada pels carrers de Sant Pere més Alt, 31, i Trafalgar, 26, té el seu origen en la fàbrica de teixits de Joan Cirici. És un passadís cobert que travessa tota la finca, el primer tram del qual, al carrer de Trafalgar, és més elevat i el separen de la part baixa 28 graons. En els últims temps, totes les botigues eren tancades i només funcionava un bar a l’entrada del carrer de Sant Pere més Alt. Actualment és en obres per construir-hi un hotel i caldrà veure quin serà l’ús que se li donarà al passatge.


De principis del segle XX fins a la República

Cartell de Fayans Català, 1904
Feliu Elias (MNAC)


Fayans Català (1900-1982)

Rebatejades per imperatiu polític com a Fayans Catalán i conegudes en els darrers anys com a Galeries Fayans, aquestes galeries ja no seguien el model parisenc sinó que estaven integrades com a passadissos interiors a la planta baixa de l’edifici de la Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 615 (primer Cortes, 250, i durant la dictadura José Antonio Primo de Rivera, 615).

Fundades per Marian Burguès, procedent de Sabadell, com a taller i botiga de ceràmica, van ser conegudes sobretot com a sala d’art i exposicions del noucentisme de la mà de Santiago Segura, nebot de Burguès, i gràcies a la col·laboració d’artistes com Miquel Utrillo, Xavier Nogués i Xènius. L’any 1915, Segura funda les Galeries Laietanes i les Fayans acolliran exclusivament la botiga de ceràmica i objectes artístics, perfumeria, queviures i una agència de viatges que dispensava els bitllets d’interrail.


Galeries Laietanes (1915-24 de maig 1958)

Situades a l’actual Gran Via de les Corts Catalanes, 613 (primer Cortes, 248, i José Antonio Primo de Rivera durant la dictadura) van ser creades pel marxant i promotor artístic Santiago Segura com a galeria d’art, substituint les veïnes Fayans del seu oncle.




Les Galeries Laietanes es van convertir en un dels focus més actius de promoció de l'art noucentista i de les avantguardes. Al soterrani s'hi va instal·lar un celler que com els 4 Gats per als modernistes, va ser un dels punts de trobada dels artistes i intel·lectuals de l'època. L'interior era decorat amb pintures murals al tremp de Xavier Nogués, amb llegendes i inscripcions humorístiques. Després de la guerra, el celler va ser convertit en magatzem i les pintures van ser arrencades i posades a la venda, i actualment, una bona part es troben al Museu Nacional d'Art de Catalunya. Les galeries, però, van continuar la seva activitat artística; l'any 1949, per exemple, hi va exposar Joan Miró. L'any 1918 s'hi va crear la Llibreria Nacional Catalana, on Salvat-Papasseit hi va treballar com a encarregat i editor, fet que recorda la catifa commemorativa que s'hi va col·locar l'any 2010.


 Passatge Mil vuit-cents


Passatge Mil vuit-cents (1931)

Situat en el carrer del Carme, 31, porta cap a la plaça de la Gardunya, darrere del mercat de la Boqueria. Neix com a galeria comercial l’any 1931 durant la reforma de la casa Torrents, una edificació de la segona meitat del segle XVII. Les botigues del passatge ocupen el lloc on eren les quadres a l'època en què la construcció era un habitatge unifamiliar. De la casa es conserven els tres portals escarsers i la porta de l'escala, i la façana, amb tres balcons i una finestra a cada pis, coberta d'esgrafiats d'estil Lluís XV, amb plafons amb temes mitològics, gerros de flors i putti, sanefes i garlandes.


Un passadís del Encants Nous


Encants Nous (1931/1959)

Els Encants Nou o Local de Vendes es constitueixen l’any 1930 a iniciativa d'un grup de paradistes del Mercat Fira de Bellcaire, que decideixen escindir-se dels Encants Vells situats al Camp del Sidral (plaça de les Glòries). El lloc triat va ser el solar de l'antic camp de futbol del Martinenc, situat entre els carrers de València, Dos de Maig i Enamorats. Després d’uns anys de precarietat, no serà fins els anys 50 que es decideix construir-hi un gran bloc d’habitatges amb les galeries ocupant la planta baixa de gairebé tota l’illa, obres que no acabaran del tot fins l’any 1968, amb un laberíntic entramat de passadissos que acullen comerços de tota mena, i que tot i no oferir cap tipus d’atracció ni oci (a banda d’algun bar) és l’exemple més paradigmàtic d’un món dins d’un món. Malgrat que als Encants Nous no podem parlar pròpiament de galeries fins aquesta data, hem volgut situar la seva història abans de la guerra per oferir el contrast entre les galeries burgeses i la iniciativa popular dels Encants, i poder-nos situar en el segon gran període de la vida de les galeries comercials barcelonines.


Les galeries comercials durant la postguerra i la fi de la dictadura

Acabada la guerra, les galeries comercials van representar una de les propostes per retornar l’activitat i la normalitat a una ciutat molt castigada pel conflicte. Amb l’Avinguda de la Llum podem parlar de les primeres galeries comercials tal i com les entenem avui, com a conjunt de d’establiments i comerços de caràcter popular, i seran les que donaran el tret de sortida a l’aparició de noves propostes al llarg de les dècades entre 1940 i 1960 que, depenent de la seva situació, aspiraran al caràcter burgès de les del segle XIX.


L'Avinguda de la Llum la dècada de 1950


Avinguda de la Llum (1940-1999)

Com ja vam explicar a Bereshit, la idea original era construir una ciutat subterrània (la Ciutat de la Llum) des de la rambla de Catalunya fins a la plaça d'Urquinaona, aprofitant les instal·lacions subterrànies de l'estació de Barcelona (plaça de Catalunya), inici i final dels Ferrocarrils de la Generalitat de Catalunya, que s'havia inaugurat amb motiu de l'Exposició Internacional de Barcelona de 1929.

Al final, aquella galeria comercial es va quedar en només 175 metres de passadís, on al llarg dels temps els negocis (hi va haver seixanta-cinc locals) van anar canviant, però en la memòria popular hi ha quedat el cinema Avenida de la Luz (1943-1992), que en els seus anys daurats havia projectat pel·lícules infantils i va acabar convertit en una sala X on s'exhibien pel·lícules pornogràfiques; els billars; la taverna de Montroy-Pedro Masana; les neules i galetes Pampers, que aromatitzaven tota l’avinguda; la Granja Royal (la casa dels dònuts); el Colmado Fortuny; la Bomboneria Cataluña; o el local del dibuixant BON.


Cinema Avenida de la Luz, 1943


Va néixer com un espai brillant que contrastava amb la grisor dels carrers de Barcelona, tot just un any després d’acabada la guerra. Però per molta llum que acompanyés el nom, ve al cap aquella imatge grisa de les parets i les columnes; els locals de maquinària de teixir, màquines d’escriure, el local de la Singer de màquines de cosir, l’armeria Beristáin, les taquilles d’apostes del canòdrom Avenida, l’oficina de col·locació de noies per al servei domèstic... Amb els anys l’avinguda va agafar aspecte de cementiri (una de les botigues era de làpides); cinema, billars i lavabos eren les catacumbes on anar a buscar plaer sexual ràpid i anònim. Consigna de maletes, dutxes, bugaderia, perruqueria. Rodamons. Les estacions antigues de tren tenien més aspecte de punt d’arribada que de sortida.

A partir de la dècada de 1970 va començar el seu declivi més pronunciat. L'enderrocament, l’any 1999, de la major part dels edificis d'aquella illa per aixecar-hi el centre comercial El Triangle va significar la mort de l'Avinguda de la Llum, les columnes de la qual encara es poden veure avui, integrades en la botiga de perfums Sephora, i en el vestíbul de les entrades dels carrers de Balmes i Bergara. La planta baixa del complex comercial de El Triangle (1998) també es podrien considerar unes galeries, integrades en un centre comercial més gran.


Galeries Maldà la dècada de 1940


Galeries Maldà (1942)

Projectades per l’arquitecte Josep Maria Sagnier, es van construir durant la primera postguerra en el jardins del palau de Rafael d'Amat i de Cortada, baró de Maldà, original del segle XVII. Amb entrada per la plaça i el carrer del Pi i pel carrer de Portaferrissa, són les galeries comercials més antigues que continuen en actiu, malgrat el tancament de molts del negocis antics

Com en el cas de l’Avinguda de la Llum, en un antic saló del palau, a més de bar, el 4 de desembre de 1945 s’hi va inaugurar el cinema Maldà, que continua en cartellera, i el 1980 una de les sales del palau va ser convertida en l’espai teatral Círcol Maldà, com ja ho havia fet el Baró de Malda l’any 1799. Abans de ser cinema, l’antic saló havia estat un teatre de titelles.


Cinema Maldà, el 1980
Arxiu Jaume Figueras


Durant una reforma del cinema, l’any 2006, darrera de la pantalla va aparèixer una fornícula entre d’altres restes d’una antiga capella construïda durant la Guerra Civil per l’Asociación de Mujeres Patriotas Vascas. Tenia una cabuda d’unes set-centes persones i s’hi celebraven misses i celebracions religioses clandestines, com expliquen Albert Manent i Josep Raventós a L'Església clandestina a Catalunya durant la Guerra Civil (1936-1939).


Magda Pla al taulell de la Policlínica de bebès


La botiga més emblemàtica de les Galeries Maldà és la Policlínica de Bebès (local 52). Inaugurada l’any 1946 per Maria Rigol, ha estat fins fa poc l’únic taller de reparació de nines que quedava a Barcelona. Quan es va inaugurar el local, hi havia altres negocis com aquest, com la Clínica de Nines del carrer del Clot, 101, dels pares de l'escriptor Estanislau Torres, i la Clínica de Bebés del carrer de la Tapineria, 6 (al carrer del Bisbe, 3, fins 1929). La competència, però, va durar poc perquè la clínica de Tapineria va tancar tres anys més tard, el 1949.


Anunci de la Clínica de Bebés del carrer del Bisbe, 3 (1927)


Maria Rigol va morir el 2014 amb 97 anys i des d’aleshores va portar el negoci tota sola la seva filla, Magda Pla, que a més de fer de cirurgiana es dedicava també a la confecció de vestits a mida per a les nines.


Galerías Conde (ca. 1945-1989)

Cap a mitjan de la dècada de 1940 es van inaugurar les Galerías Conde al carre Nou de la Rambla, 60 (aleshores Conde del Asalto), amb entrada també pel carrer del Marquès de Barberà). Van ser potser les galeries comercials amb un públic més populars, sobretot pel barri on eren situades, l’antic Districte 5è, convertit en Xino després de la desaparició del barri de les Drassanes. A diferència de les galeries més cèntriques, a les Conde s’hi aplegaven botigues que si no eren de primera necessitat tampoc eren d’articles de luxe o de complements. El que les feia atractives era, precisament, el que hem explicat més amunt: aquesta mena d’il·lusió de veure aplegats en un laberint negocis diversos. Si preguntes als veïns, recorden la cafeteria, la papereria on la canalla comprava i canviava cromos, l’ocelleria que hi donava el toc exòtic, les botigues de novetats i gèneres de punt, i la perruqueria. Però, sobretot, el patge dels Reis d’Orient i, com no podia faltar, una atracció: els Miralls Màgics que distorsionaven el cos, com els de les Atraccions Apolo, i que servien de reclam tant dels nens i nenes com dels pares, i il·lustren perfectament el component simbòlic de les galeries.

A finals dels anys 80, quan l’edifici es va enderrocar, les galeries vivien en plena decadència amb gairebé tots els locals tancats.


 El saló de te i la font del Palau Samà de la Galeria Condal


Galeria Condal (1946-2016)

Situada en el número 11 del passeig de Gràcia, la Galeria Condal neix, entre 1946 y 1949, del projecte dissenyat per l'arquitecte Lluís Bonet Garí, amb influència de l'Escola de Chicago, per encàrrec del Banco Vitalicio de España -avui grup Generali-, propietari de l'edifici. El 1990 va passar a dir-se Condal Corner.

A més del vestíbul d'entrada al banc, la galeria tenia 22 locals per a botigues, un saló de te (1951-1990) -que va mantenir fins el darrer dia la distinció de les cafeteries burgeses- i una petita i selecta sala d'espectacles per a poc més de quatre-cents espectador, concebuda com a cinema i per a concerts. El cinema Galería Condal va ser inaugurat el 13 de desembre de 1946, abans que fossin acabades les obres de l'edifici, i va tancar el 13 d'abril de 1986 després d'uns anys de degradació tant de la sala com de la programació, que va acabar oferint pel·lícules catalogades "S".

L'edifici es va construir després d'enderrocar el Palau Samà, que ocupava aquesta cantonada del passeig de Gràcia amb la Gran Via des de finals de la dècada de 1860. Del palau només va sobreviure la font de marbre dels jardins, que va ser ubicada en el centre de la lluerna que il·luminava la galeria. Tot esperant una nova ubicació, la font va ser desmuntada el 2016 després d'unes reformes que van mutilar la galeria en desconnectar les dues entrades.


Galeríes Santa Caterina (1946-final dels 80)

Inaugurades com a Galerías Santa Catalina, estaven situades entre els barris de Sant Pere i de Santa Catalina, amb entrada pels carrers de  Gombau, 12, i Fonollar, 7. Van ser unes galeries eminentment populars, com les Conde del carrer Nou de la Rambla, també de la mateixa època. La novetat i el fet de ser un passatge per on circular lliurament les feia molt atractives, i el fet d'aplegar comerços diversos en un únic espai li donava caràcter de modernitat en uns barris on el teixit comercial entre els mercats del Born i de Santa Caterina era històricament molt ampli.

Entre diversos comerços, hi havia dues perruqueries, un podòleg, un sabater, i una botiga de joguines i un altra de llaminadures que atreien la canalla del barri, acostumada a jugar al carrer, per als quals la novetat del passatge els oferia un nou paisatge al seu imaginari. També hi havia a les galeries un dispensari i un practicant que va posar injeccions i va foradar orelles a tot el barri.

Les Galeries Santa Caterina van tancar a final de la dècada de 1980, quan es va iniciar el PERI que transformaria el barri amb la destrucció de l'entramat de carrers medievals i de molts edificis amb elements gòtics i barrocs.


Galerías Universidad (1954-1977)

Situades en el número 3 de la plaça Universitat, les Galerías Universidad van ocupar l’espai deixat pel Salón Tirolés (1950-1954), una sala de varietats popular que oferia revista, ball i màgia, i que va durar pocs anys.

Dissenyades per Domingo Serra, van ser inaugurades el 21 de desembre de 1954. Disposaven de dos nivells; la planta baixa aplegava una trentena de locals, amb una cafeteria i una oficina de loteria i d'Apuestas Mutuas Deportivo Benéficas a l'entrada més propera a la ronda de Sant Antoni. Al fons del local, una font lluminosa decorava l'espai i a través d'una escala de marbre s'accedia al nivell superior, on es feien exhibicions de moda i artesania, i on, l'any 1955, es va inaugurar una sala de projeccions que oferia gratuïtament documentals i filmets publicitaris. A mitjans de la dècada de 1970, les galeries van tancar i l'immoble va ser adquirit per Finques Forcadell, que hi va construir la seva seu.


Galerías Olimpia (1955)

Situades en el xamfrà de la ronda de Sant Pau amb el carrer d’Aldana, on va haver el Teatre Circ Olympia (1924-1947), van ser inaugurades a mitjans de la dècada de 1950 en un solar que va ser lloc d’estada de circs ambulants fins que no s’hi va construir el nou immoble, compartint espai amb el descampat de l’altra vorera de la ronda, l’actual plaça de Josep Maria Folch i Torres, construïda on va haver la presó de Reina Amàlia (1839-1936) i anteriorment el convent de Sant Vicenç de Paül, construït el 1833 i desamortitzat i incendiat només dos anys després. La presó de Reina Amàlia, que acollia dones, nens i homes (només per a dones a partir de 1904, quan es va inaugurar la Model), va ser, a més de lloc de reclusió i d’execucions públiques a garrot, una de les institucions repressives més infames de la ciutat. Tant és així que, el 1936, va ser enderrocada amb l’ajut dels ciutadans com si fos la presa de la Bastilla.


 El Teatre Circ Olympia el Dia de la Fe de la Falange
29 d'octubre de 1944. Pérez Rozas (AFB)


El Teatre Circ Olympia va ser un dels teatres més grans no només de Barcelona, sinó de tot l’Estat. A les 3.000 localitats s’hi sumava una pista que ocupava part de la platea davant de l’escenari i que tant podia fer-se servir com a pista de circ com de piscina per a espectacles aquàtics. Fins no fa gaire temps, les restes de les gàbies dels animals del circ es podien en el subsòl d’un garatge proper.

Pel que fa a les galeries, a partir dels anys 90 van patir un progressiu abandonament que arriba fins avui, malgrat l’ús esporàdics com a mercat de roba i objectes vintage, i l’obertura de negocis relacionats bàsicament amb la música.


Galerías La Equitativa (1955-ca. 1965)

Com ens explica Barcelofília, l'any 1955 s'inaugura en el passeig de Gràcia, 44, cantonada amb Consell de Cent la seu de l'entitat d'assegurances i riscos La Equitativa-Fundación Rosillo, que fins aleshores havia tingut les seves oficines a la Via Laietana, 54.

L'edifici, projectat per l'arquitecte Francesc Joan Barba Corsini, contemplava unes galeries comercials amb locals distribuïts en quatre nivells (soterrani, planta baixa, altell i primer pis). Entre els comerços i entitats que es van instal·lar a la planta baixa hi havia la companyia aèria italiana LAI, una oficina de turisme italiana, la botiga d'electrodomèstics Georgia, la de moda Giménez y Simorra, la Galería Belarte (1962) i la cafeteria restaurant Milan (1955-1971), que passava per ser un dels més moderns de la ciutat.




A partir de gener de 1956 són ocupats l'altell i la primera planta amb l'ampliació del Milan, una agència de viatges i la perruqueria femenina Capri, entre d'altres negocis, però el concepte de galeria comercial es va anar diluint a favor dels negocis amb accés directe des del carrer.


Galerías Astoria, el 1958


Galerías Astòria (1955-1968)

Les Galerías Astoria van ser inaugurades el dia 15 de desembre de 1955 en el número 133 de la Rambla, amb entrada i sortida també pel carrer Xuclà. Van ser construïdes sobre una part del solar dels antics magatzems El Siglo(1881-1932), que van acabar consumits pel foc d'un incendi pel Nadal de 1932. La desaparició dels magatzems va permetre obrir el carrer del Pintor Fortuny fins a la Rambla i durant més de vint anys aquell solar es va fer servir durant anys com a espai d'oci de teatres ambulants, circ i barraques de fira, fins que no es va obrir el carrer del Pintor Fortuny.

El promotor de les galeries va ser Sánchez Egea aprofitant l'eufòria econòmica un cop acabada l'autarquia i la moda d'aquesta mena de comerços. El negoci no va funcionar tan bé com s’esperava, i a partir del 19 de desembre de 1959 una part de les galeries van ser adquirides per la família Amat i convertides en el Superservis, un dels primers supermercats de la ciutat, fins el tancament de les galeries, el 1968, que serien convertides definitivament en supermercat, primer Simago, el 1969, i més tard Carrefour.


Les galeries i l'hotel Manila, el 1957, des del carrer Pintor Fortuny


Galerías i Hotel Manila (1957-1991)

Dos anys després de la construcció de les Galerías Astoria es va construir l’Hotel Manila just al costat, fent cantonada amb el carrer del Pintor Fortuny i ocupant la resta del solar dels magatzems El Siglo. Amb doble entrada per la Rambla i Pintor Fortuny, s’accedia a la recepció de l’hotel per una galeria comercial amb botigues de luxe. L’any 1991 va canviar la propietat del negoci, el Manila es va convertir en Le Méridien i les galeries van desaparèixer convertides en part de la recepció.


Passatge Arcàdia


Passatge Arcàdia (1957)

El passatge Arcàdia va ser construït com a passadís d'unió del carrer de Tuset, 14-16, amb el de Balmes, 179, projectat per l’arquitecte Sebastià Bonet i Ayet entre 1956 i 1960. A l'edifici del costat de l'entrada de Tuset s'hi va inaugurar, el 1957, el cinema Arcadia (1957-1998), que acabaria donant nom oficiós al passatge. L'Arcadia va ser el segon cinema de Barcelona amb categoria d'art i assaig després del Publi del passeig de Gràcia, aquelles sales que ens van permetre accedir a una modernitat (a voltes estrany) que no era permesa a les pantalles comercials.

A l'interior hi va haver el bar Stork Club (avui Arkadia Newage), que va ser un més dels pols d'atracció d'aquella Gauche Divine que freqüentava el barri, com els fotògrafs Colita i Xavier Miserachs, el director de cinema Joaquim Jordà, o Oriol Regàs, que va ser aquí on va gestar la idea d'obrir Bocaccio (3).

Amb alts i baixos, com totes les galeries comercials d'aquesta època, conserva encara, entre una perruqueria, un despatx de loteria i un quiosc de premsa, alguns dels negocis dels anys seixanta, com la xarcuteria Aragón, tota una curiositat en aquest entorn i aquesta barriada on són tan poc habituals els comerços tradicionals. També hi sobreviu la galeria d'art Carmen Sallent o la sastreria de Jaume Balart, ara regentada pel seu fill, que entre peces de roba i maniquins exposa pintures i dibuixos de Xavier Cugat, client i amic del sastre. La botiga de col·leccionisme d'en Joan Ginjoan omple el passatge d'un encant antic amb les vitrines on exposa postals, sifons i ampolles de refrescos pirografiades que ens porten a una antiguitat prou recent com per fer-nos còmplices.


 El carrer de la Dona d'Horta, on avui hi ha les Galeries Horta


Galeries Horta (1959)

Les Galeries Horta tenen entrada per la plaça d'Eivissa, 6, i el carrer Tajo, i formen part de la planta baixa d’un edifici construït per una caixa d’estalvis. Remodelades, continuen en actiu i amb bona salut perquè es troben en el cor comercial i històric d’Horta. Segueixen en part el traçat de l'antic carrer de la Dona, que unia el centre de la població amb el barri de la Clota. La construcció de l'edifici i les galeries a finals de la dècada de 1950 van canviar definitivament aquell paisatge rural de casetes, pous i el taller de carros d'en Cebrià Riera.

Com ens explica la Carme Martín, en Cebrià, a més de carreter, exercia de curandero, seguint la tradició de les velles remeieres que encara vam conèixer carretejant herbes de la muntanya fins els anys 60. Ell, però, es feia dir “Doctor en Botànica”.


Galerías Jaime I (1967)

Amb entrada pel carrer de la República Argentina, 267-269, i el passeig de Sant Gervasi, 80, les Galerías Jaime I van ser inaugurades l'any 1967. Entre d'altres locals, hi havia un sabater, pastisseria i forn, una botiga de gèneres de punt i merceria, una de duplicats de claus i una rellotgeria, que és l'única botiga que sobreviu perquè la resta de l'espai ha estat ocupat per un supermercat.




Seguin la pauta d'altres galeries, hi va haver el cinema de reestrena Jaime I, inaugurat el mateix any que les galeries i clausurat el 9 d'agost de 1981. A la sala s'hi accedia baixant unes escales i a l'avantsala hi havia un bar. L'any 1984 va ser desmantellat i les butaques van anar a parar a la sala del teatre Artenbrut (1993-2005), del barri de Gràcia. Del cinema només sobreviu el rètol de ferro forjat, catalanitzat com a Jaume I.




Drugstore Passeig de Gràcia (1967-1992)

El mes de juny de 1967 s'inaugurava el Drugstore del passeig de Gràcia, 71, el primer dels quatre que hi va haver a Barcelona. Tot i que mantenia els principis bàsics dels passatges i les galeries comercials integrats en un edifici, el seu horari s'allargava fins a altes hores de la matinada i estaven pensat per al públic noctàmbul que volia trobar un lloc on fer una copa després de sortir dels espectacles nocturns o que volia allargar la nit, però també com a espai on era possible comprar qualsevol article de necessitat fora dels horaris estàndard.


Drugstore Passeig de Gràcia


Com ens explica Barcelofília, a la inauguració, que va aplegar a la plana major de la intel·lectualitat barcelonina del moment, hi van ser Salvador Dalí i l'actor George Hamilton. El local, seguint l'itinerari d'entrada des del passeig de Gràcia, presentava en primer lloc la barra de la cafeteria, després seguia una sèrie de botigues -les de moda hi van tenir molta tirada en els primers anys-, una llibreria amb les parets de vidre de format no gaire gran però molt atapeïda de llibres, un bar restaurant amb un altell i al fons una botiga de queviures, conserves, licors i vins, on hi havia una porta que donava al passatge Domingo.


Cartell del Drugstore David (1969)


Galeries i Drugstore David (1969)

La història de les Galeries David del carrer Tuset, 19, estan associades l'antiga fàbrica de cotxes David, que va ser inaugurada l'any 1931 al carrer d'Aribau, 230-240. El 1942, una vegada acabada la Guerra Civil, es va començar a parcel·lar l’edifici per a petites indústries, magatzems i oficines, i els clients podien accedir per una rampa a cadascuna de les plantes amb el seu propi vehicle.A partir de 1958, l'empresa David va incorporar serveis automobilístics i va conformar l'edifici com un espai integral d'aparcament i pupil·latge de vehicles amb estació de servei inclosa, situada a la segona planta de l'edifici.

L'any 1964 es va ampliar amb la finca de Tuset, 19, i entre 1967 i 1969 es van inaugurar una terrassa i les Galeries David. Aprofitant l'esplendor que el carrer Tuset va adquirir durant els anys d'aquella primera modernitat que girava. sobretot, al voltant dels fills de casa bona i de la Gauche Divine, el 20 d’octubre de 1973 es van remodelar, es va fer un accés per la Travessera de Gràcia i es van passar a dir Drugstore David, apuntant-se a l’èxit del local del passeig de Gràcia. Amb els anys, les galeries han anat canviat i adaptant-se, i per no apartar-se de l'oci que acompanya aquestes instal·lacions comercials, hi inclou un gimnàs.

El mes d'abril de 2016, durant unes obres a la planta baixa de l'edifici David, per l'entrada del carrer d'Aribau, hi van aparèixer un centenar de cadàvers. No se'n coneix l'origen, però no sembla que sigui una necròpolis, sinó un enterrament secundari, i que els cossos hi fossin traslladats per raons que encara es desconeixen (vegeu La necròpolis de Tuset Street).


Drugstore Liceo (1972-1982)

El dia 16 de setembre de 1972 obria portes el tercer drugstore de la ciutat, a la part baixa de la Rambla, al costat del Teatre del Liceu.

El local disposava de planta baixa, primer pis i soterrani, on es podien trobar les botigues i els productes habituals d'aquesta mena de galeries comercials: bars i cafeteries, quiosc, perfumeria, boutiques, discos, llibreria, vins i licors, joguines i articles de regal, estanc i, fins i tot, una xarcuteria.

La diferència amb els altres drugstores va ser, precisament, el seu emplaçament. Si bé la Rambla propiciava la clientela habitual d'aquest locals, a partir de la matinada es convertia en reclam de prostitutes, delinqüents i drogoaddictes, i la confluència de tot plegat generava problemes i baralles constants.


Drug Blau (1973-1978)

Situat en el número 33 de la plaça de Lesseps, al capdamunt del Príncep d'Astúries, antiga Riera de Cassoles, nom que es reivindica per a la frontera natural dels barris i antics municipis de Gràcia i Sant Gervasi.

El Drug Blau ocupava la planta baixa d'un peculiar edifici de color blau, i oferia restaurant self-service dia i nit, boutiques de roba, perfumeria, floristeria i complements, llibreria, discos, una perruqueria unisex i un local de jocs recreatius.


De la dictadura als centres comercials


El Mercadillo de Portaferrissa (2002)


El Mercadillo (1975)

Sucursal de l'antic Mercadillo de Balmes, que cantonada amb Sant Hermenegild, no està situat exactament en un passatge, sinó en el vestíbul de la Casa Martí i Fàbregas del carrer de Portaferrissa, 17, un palau del segle XVIII, reformat per Francesc Batlle però projectat per Garriga i Roca l'any 1864. Conegut popularment com “El Camell”, aplega botigues de roba, complements i articles de regal, i un bar que ocupa el jardí elevat d’estil renaixentista original de la finca. Neix com a una forma alternativa de comerç, que triomfa entre la joventut, sobretot per l’oferta de productes artesans i per una nova manera de relacionar-se i entendre el consum.


La Pedrera (ca. 1975-1979)

Durant la segona meitat de la dècada de 1970 els locals dels baixos de la Casa Milà, del passeig de Gràcia, va acollir unes galeries comercials amb botigues de roba i complements, algunes d'elles de moda eivissenca i ad lib, tant de moda en aquells anys.


Bulevard Rosa (1978)

Inaugurat el 14 de desembre de 1978, ocupa els passadissos interiors de l’illa delimitada pel passeig de Gràcia, Aragó, rambla de Catalunya, València. És hereu del Salón Rosa (1932-1974) del passeig de Gràcia, 55, un dels llocs de trobada de l’alta societat i local de referència per a una part de la generació de la postguerra. El Bulevard implicarà una nova modernitat allunyada del reducte hippy del Mercadillo, al posar a l’abast de la joventut el concepte de roba de “marca” lluny dels preus prohibitius de les botigues selectes del passeig de Gràcia. L'èxit de la iniciativa va fer que s'obrissin dues sucursals més a la Diagonal, en els números 474 (en el nou edifici Windsor) i 609-615, al costat del carrer Joan Güell.


El Publi Cinema el dia de l'estrena de Repulsión de Polanski


Fins el 2005, en el baixos del Bulevard hi va haver els cinemes Publi 1 i 2, inaugurats el 1976 substituint el Publi Cinema inaugurat el 1932, que va ser la primera sala d’art i assaig amb la projecció, un març de 1967, de Sueños, d'Ingmar Bergman.




Pedralbes Center (1989), a l’edifici El Dau de Diagonal, Joan Güell, Europa; Via Wagner (1985-1993), a l'illa delimitada per Diagonal-Beethoven-Bori i Fontestà i Ganduxer al voltant de la plaça Wagner; i Galeries Avenida (1985-2006), al capdamunt de la rambla de Catalunya, són tres casos nascuts com a conseqüència de l’èxit del Bulevard Rosa, unes amb més fortuna que d’altres, i serveixen d'exemple a una llarga llista de galeries comercials de barri que han anat naixent i morint pel camí des dels anys 80. La nòmina és llarga i només n'apuntarem els noms perquè no aporten res de nou al concepte de galeria comercial:

Durant la postguerra, l’Espanya negra retratada per Goya, Gutiérrez Solana o Buñuel, aquella Espanya miserable i analfabeta que a cops de crucifix i d’alçaments militars va apartar una bona part de la població de l’Humanisme i de la Il·lustració i que va convertir el país en el racó folklòric d’Europa, va tenir la seva continuïtat a la ràdio i al quiosc vestida de cultura popular. D’una banda, El Caso (que tan bé ens ha descrit Sícoris) es convertia en el màxim exponent de la crònica negra, que els diaris convencionals adscrits a la Prensa del Movimiento s’encarregava d’enllustrar per fer-nos creure que vivíem en un país normal. D’una altra, les radionovel·les perpetuaven els drames dels folletins i la literatura de canya i cordill, i els consultoris sentimentals i de bellesa posaven capes de maquillatge a la realitat diària de milers de dones que demanaven consell per justificar unes vides amb poc marge de maniobra, dins d’una societat profundament masclista que els donava el matrimoni i la maternitat com a únics valors i esperances.

En aquest context de postguerra, l’any 1947 naixia el Consultorio de Elena Francis, un espai radiofònic dirigit al públic femení, que s'estructurava al voltant de la correspondència que dirigien les radiooients a una suposada experta, Elena Francis, que contestava els dubtes, consultes i confidències que es plantejaven. Les consultes anaven des de temes estrictament domèstics, com cuina, jardineria, salut i bellesa, fins els problemes que gaudien d’una més gran expectació i dramatisme: els sentimentals i els psicològics.

La idea del consultori la va inspirar Francisca Elena Bes, que pertanyia a una família amb negocis dins del món de la cosmètica, propietaris, junt amb el seu marit Josep Fradera, de l'Instituto Francis i els laboratoris del mateix nom. Situats inicialment al carrer Pelai, 56, es van traslladar els anys 60 a la Ronda de Sant Pere, 18, a l'edifici dissenyat per l'arquitecte Nil Tusquets, el projecte del qual encapçala aquest apunt i on continua encara avui. El nom Elena Francis prové d'invertir l'apel·latiu familiar de l'empresària.

El consultori va començar les emissions a Ràdio Barcelona, des d'on va emetre fins 1966, i posteriorment va passar a Ràdio Peninsular i a Ràdio Intercontinental, fins la cancel·lació del programa, l’any 1984, per baixa audiència. Alguna cosa havia canviat en el país. L’educació i la bonança econòmica havia transformat els interessos i les aspiracions del públic potencial, malgrat que les revistes del cor continuaven tenint un públic fidel que s’emmirallava en les vides, els vestits i les cases dels famosos, que inspiraven il·lusions i esperances des de les pantalles del cinema o des de les corts reials europees i orientals, plenes de princeses glamuroses: Soraia, la "princesa dels ulls tristos", repudiada pel Xa de Pèrsia, que després es va casar amb Farah Diva; Grace Kelly, casada amb el príncep Rainier de Mònaco; Rita Hayworth, segona esposa d'Alí Khan, príncep dels ismaïlites; o Fabiola, germana del desheretat Jaime de Mora y Aragón, que va esdevenir reina dels belgues quan es va casar amb Balduí. Miralls on s'hi reflectien la mediocritat i els somnis.




Del consultori de l’Elena Francis, a la memòria popular hi ha quedat, sobretot, la sintonia del programa: l’Indian Summer, de Victor Herbert, que a la ràdio sonava en la versió d’André Kostelanetz, amb una lletra adaptada al contingut del consultori, i que podeu escoltar i recordar en el vídeo adjunt. I igual que la música, en el record queda la veu de la locutora Maruja Fernández, que després de Maria Garriga i tres locutores més va ser la veu de Francis de 1962 fins el darrer dia.

Inicialment, les respostes a les consultes (unes set en cada emissió diària) eren redactades per un equip de guionistes, però a partir de 1966 se’n va fer càrrec el periodista i crític taurí Juan Soto Viñolo. Elena Francis no només no existia sinó que era un home. La notícia es va fer pública l’any 1982 quan Gerard Imbert va publicar Elena Francis, un consultorio para la transición. El descobriment va causar una gran commoció en moltes dones, tant pel fet de no existir com pel fet d’haver posat la seva intimitat a mans d’un home. De tota manera, el programa ja era un moribund i dos anys més tard va passar a millor vida. Desmantellat l’espai, el material va desaparèixer de l’emissora, fins que una part de les cartes i alguns guions va ser trobats a Can Tirel, una masia de Cornellà de Llobregat propietat de la família Fradera: 70.000 documents del període comprès entre 1951 i 1972, i que des de 2007 són a l’Arxiu Comarcal del Baix Llobregat.

Les sorpreses, però, no acaben aquí. Mitjan la dècada de 1990, l’amiga d’una amiga (lamento no recordar el seu nom) estava fent la seva tesi d'antropologia sobre el consultori de l’Elena Francis (gràcies a ella tinc gravats en una casset alguns programes, entre ells el darrer, emès l’1 de febrer de 1984). Poc després, vaig conèixer Juan Soto Viñolo, que feia poc que havia publicat Querida Elena Francis (Barcelona: Grijalbo, 1995). Per qüestions professionals editorials vaig tenir l’oportunitat de compartir experiències i confidències radiofòniques amb ell.

Tant la investigació dels materials per a la tesi con el mateix Juan Soto van confirmar que la grisor dels consultoris amagaven més d’una tragèdia. Centenars de cartes no van ser mai emeses per antena. Moltes, perquè no tenien prou interès i calia fer una selecció; d’altres, perquè el seu contingut reflectia absolutes tragèdies: maltractament físic i psicològic, assetjament, violacions, incestos i embarassos no desitjats a causa d'aquests abusos (molts d’aquests casos venien de Galícia, lloc on l’estupre amb la filla sempre ha estat elevat, per causes diverses); drames personals i familiars diversos, i delictes de tota mena que testimoniaven que la realitat és aparent... excepte per a qui la viu i la pateix.

Però hauríem d’esperar fins el 2008 perquè Pietat Estany, que va treballar durant vuit anys en el consultori radiofònic d'Elena Francis, ens ho expliqués en el llibre Estimades Amigues. El darrer escrit d'una Doña Elena Francis silenciosa i silenciada (Barcelona: Dèria Editors / La Magrana, 2008). Pietat Estany va ser l’encarregada, durant aquest temps, de contestar per escrit les cartes que no passaven la selecció del programa; ella va ser l’encarregada de donar consol a les veus que cridaven auxili, i ara el seu relat ens ajuda a reconstruir un escenari que, encara, és ple de buits, d’ombres i de foscor.




Montserrat Fortuny

Però a casa érem més de l'altre consultori que rivalitzava amb la Francis, el Consultorio femenino de Doña Montserrat Fortuny, de Radio Reloj de Radio España (EAJ15), que més tard esdevindria Cadena Catalana. Les raons són històriques, com veurem, però n’hi havia una que ens cridava l’atenció: el patrocinador del programa era Laboratorios Eupartol (després LRT, de Laboratorios Ricardo Trilla), que tenien la seva seu en el carrer Xifré 48 (entre Provença i Mallorca), en el barri del Clot de Barcelona, just al costat de casa.

Temps després, quan van enderrocar l’edifici, aquell solar es va convertir en un descampat de deixalles dels laboratoris, que van despertar la curiositat de la canalla que hi anàvem a jugar. Els laboratoris produïen medicaments i material de ginecologia i obstetrícia, com vam poder comprovar inspeccionant les restes, entre elles pinces umbilicals, noves i usades. Usades vol dir que n’hi havia amb restes de teixits, no sé si de nadons o de vés a saber quins animals, que segurament servien per comprovar la fiabilitat de l'instrumental d'una empresa que s'anunciava a la ràdio amb una veu que deia: “Eupartol alivia el dolor de los problemas de la mujer”.

El consultori de la Montserrat Fortuny té els seus orígens en el Consultori femení de bellesa Eupartol, que Ràdio Barcelona emetia l’any 1935 en el programa Radiofémina. L’any següent el consultori passa a Ràdio Associació de Catalunya, que després de la guerra seria reconvertida en Radio España, “la emisora de las Ramblas”. I seria l’any 1945 que el consultori prenia el nom de Montserrat Fortuny.

Montserrat Fortuny era un pseudònim, però darrere s’hi amagava una persona real: Emilia Saez de Tejada, esposa de Ricard Trilla, amo dels laboratoris. De tota manera, qui posava la veu i la presència a la ràdio va ser, durant molts anys, l’actriu Mercedes Laspra (Astúries, 1915) fins que quan es va jubilar (1981) la va substituir Carme Nubiola.


Mercedes Laspra, la veu de Montserrat Fortuny


El consultori de Montserrat Fortuny va acabar també l’any 1984, però per alguna raó no ha generat la mateixa expectació que l’Elena Francis. És possible que la discreció dels treballadors de la ràdio i la prudència i el control dels laboratoris hagi fet que no s’escampés cap llegenda sobre el contingut de les cartes. L’emissió local del consultori també haurà ajudat, tot i que això no vol dir que no hi hagi una Catalunya negra. No se n’han escrit llibres, ni tesis, i la pervivència resta només en la memòria sense fer gaire soroll.


Sintonies de Radio España


A molts de nosaltres, però, ens va deixar el record inesborrable de la sintonia i d’alguna de les falques musicals. El caràcter oral de la ràdio ha propiciat la retenció memorística de cançons, anuncis i de les veus dels locutors. La sintonia la podem taral·lejar, però no en sé el nom; sembla un vals. Potser algú la pot identificar en el vídeo adjunt (cap el minut 2). Una altra sintonia del programa era la Marxa del Coronel Bogey, la melodia militar britànica que els soldats del coronel Nicholson xiulaven quan desfilaven a la pel·lícula El pont sobre el riu Kwai. Però sobretot, mai he oblidat una cançoneta encantadora que m’emociona de forma totalment irracional, el Dites-moi, d'Ngana i Jorome, de la pel·lícula South Pacific (1958).




Ignoro si ara hi ha consultoris sentimentals a la ràdio. M’és ben igual; no gosaria escoltar-los. Durant la infantesa aquella narració tenia el mateix valor de ficció que les radionovel·les. El temps ens ha fet descobrir que aquells relats no eren més ficció que la realitat del carrer i eren la conseqüència natural de l’ambient històric i social en què vivíem. I les nostres mares ho sabien, és clar.

          re: Biodynamic Farming and the Legacy of Rudolf Steiner   

Steiner was indeed a true visionary in regard to agriculture.Much of his work was based on earlier findings of Johannes Goethe who in turn was greatly influenced by ancient learning of Ayaverda and Hindu culture. The Cosmic influences are indeed important, and the other planets in our solar system certainly do affect plant growth and the expression of genetic potential in plants. However I would point out that Steiner, when talking about cosmic influences, was talking about the Sidereal zodiac ( as used in the Indian cultures), not the Tropical zodiac that you have used above.

Using Sidereal zodiac, eg sun was in Taurus from May 15 to June 16 this year. The other signs also would be each about 25 days later than those given above. It is very important to use the correct zodiac, as used by Steiner, if you wish to tune into the cosmos for your growing plants.

    The earlier comments about Jeavons and his use of human dung, would appear to not be in accord with biodynamic teachings. It may well be possible to use human dung if you could source some from a human that had not consumed any medicines or foods containing antibiotics, preservatives, or agricultural chemicals. But where do you find such a human today, bearing in mind that the dung should also be sourced on the same property where it is being applied?  The dung from animals such as cows and sheep farmed under biodynamic principles is an essential part of biodynamics, and is free of all the human baddies.


          Horóscopo de julho: Tensão, conflitos e oportunidades vêm aí!   
Horóscopo da semana! (Foto: Mike Lowery - Reprodução/Instagram)

 

Julho chegou! O sétimo mês do ano se divide entre os signos de Câncer e Leão  -- água e fogo, respectivamente -- e vem cheio de oportunidades de mudança e também alguns conflitos. Confira as previsões do nosso astrólogo Julio Grobel para ficar por dentro do seu!

 


Áries
Até meados do mês, a situação pode ficar cada vez mais tensa no ambiente familiar, como um panela de pressão no seu máximo. O começo do mês pode ser um período bem complicado, em que implicará uma situação sem controle que vai exigir algumas escolhas, e a Lua Cheia do dia 9 marca o ápice destes acontecimentos. Tome cuidado pra o estresse não se converter em ansiedade e sofrer no físico com alergias e inflamações ou se acidentar. Certamente não é um período favorável para mudanças e investimento em imóveis, e você pode ter muita dor de cabeça por conta disso. Mas alegre-se, pois, a partir do dia 20, as coisas melhoram com seu regente ingressando em Leão e toda energia, antes muito contida, pode ser extravasada. O final do mês será a melhor fase para aproveitar a vida. Caso tenha filhos,  eles podem pedir mais sua atenção. Curta esse momento com eles.

Amor
Vênus ingressa em Gêmeos a partir do dia 5, o que facilita o contato e a comunicação entre o casal ou, se não estiver em um relacionamento, a busca pelo amor no seu entorno. Será importante proporcionar um estímulo mental, não apenas físico e emocional. Já a partir do dia 23, será a melhor fase pra romances. A libido estará em alta, por isso vale curtir mais os momentos de prazer, viver mais o presente e ativar seu lado mais criativo. Período também muito fértil, bom para caso pense em ter filhos.

Trabalho
Boas oportunidades para ganhos, mas é necessário que você saiba vender a ideia, tenha lábia e estimule a troca. A partir do dia 6, pode sentir o trabalho cada vez mais agradável e isso alimenta sua confiança e chance de sucesso. É um momento bem criativo da sua parte, por isso confie em seus talentos e coloque aquilo que sabe de fazer de melhor. E, a partir do dia 26, deverá saber se organizar mais e prestar atenção aos detalhes. No geral, passará por um ótimo mês neste setor, por isso aproveite para crescer profissionalmente. Preste atenção por volta do dia 14, quando uma boa oportunidade pode aparecer.


Touro
Seu regente ingressa em Gêmeos a partir do dia 5 e é a melhor fase para trabalhar a comunicação e as ideias e buscar mais conhecimento. Como é um período bom para cursos, envolva-se com algo interessante agora. Se estiver com alguma ação na justiça, pode não ter o resultado esperado por volta do dia 9, mas não é motivo para desistir. A partir do dia 20, problemas com a família ou com seu passado podem surgir. Será uma fase de lidar mais com questões íntimas e você poderá sentir uma ansiedade maior -- qualquer coisa dita ou feita em casa pode apertar seu botão do nervosismo. Tome cuidado com acidentes em casa neste período e, caso se envolva com alguma reforma, poderá enfrentar alguns atrasos.

Amor
Bons ventos sopram a seu favor caso não esteja em um relacionamento. Se estiver e viver um casamento (em que mora com o outro), pode enfrentar alguns conflitos agora no início do mês. Para você, tudo pode estar muito seguro e confortável, mas, para o outro, tal comodismo pode incomodar. Na primeira metade do mês, procure curtir mais a dois com coisas mais intimistas. Fiquem mais em casa, assistindo a um filme juntinhos ou façam um jantar romântico. Ao longo de todo mês resgate, atitudes românticas e, a partir do dia 26, trabalhe mais a comunicação e, se não estiver em um relacionamento, envolva-se com atividades e pessoas diferentes, pois alguém legal pode surgir disso.

Trabalho
Bom mês pra ganhos e oportunidades aparecerão pra isso, principalmente por volta do dia 14. Poderá sentir uma ansiedade maior a partir do dia 20 e mais pressa para resolver as coisas, o que pode lhe causar problemas, principalmente caso responda a alguém. Por isso, acalme-se um pouco e faça aquilo que sabe fazer de melhor. A partir do dia 25, trabalhe mais seus contatos e não tenha medo de inovar.

Gêmeos
Será um mês bem agitado no nível pessoal, pois seu regente ingressa em Leão a partir do dia 6 e depois em Virgem a partir do dia 25. Nesses primeiros 20 dias do mês, você estará com tudo, buscará se envolver em mais conhecimento e também expressar mais suas ideias. Nos últimos dias do mês, pode começar a ouvir mais do que fala, interiorizar mais as questões e trabalhar melhor as informações que adquire.

Amor
Vênus ingressa em seu signo, então é a chance do amor aparecer neste momento. Vale também cuidar mais de você, da aparência e, talvez, mudar o visual. Naturalmente atrairá olhares e, com essa mudança, a chance de sucesso é certa. Se estiver em um relacionamento, aproveite a fase mais romântica e receba mimos do outro. Caso não esteja, nada impede este mês de conseguir. Apenas não vá com muita expectativa, curta mais o momento e, quando se der conta, já estará com alguém interessante. Mesmo que não resulte em um namoro ou romance mais intenso, isso não a impede de curtir e viver aquela paixão mais leve.

Trabalho
Atenção à Lua Cheia do dia 9, pois poderá passar por alguma dificuldade financeira por volta desse dia. O quanto investe em seu patrimônio? Esse pode ser um momento de despertar para tal questão financeira e ter que controlar mais os gastos a partir de então. Também não será uma boa fase para ganhos. O que deve fazer, principalmente a partir do dia 23, é vender mais seu produto através da lábia. Para isso, troque bastante ideias ao longo do mês e saiba absorver críticas construtivas e aprimore sua ideia, especialmente no fim do mês.

Câncer
Os nascidos no segundo e terceiro decanato iniciam um novo ciclo pessoal e devem sentir aquele chamado de que precisam fazer algo para mudar a vida de alguma maneira.  Agora no início do mês, a ansiedade e a pressão podem ser maiores, o que pode causar algumas reações destrutivas, principalmente para o próprio físico, por conta do acúmulo de estresse e energia. Família e lar são temas que caminharão bem este mês, bem como as amizades. Trabalhe a comunicação e a troca neste setores, especialmente no final do mês.

Amor
Será difícil manifestar o amor neste momento. Na verdade, você poderá afastar pessoas por conta da irritação que estiver sentindo, principalmente na primeira metade do mês. A dica é você trabalhar mais o autoconhecimento e buscar o amor que existe dentro de si em vez de suprir uma carência buscando no outro o que julga faltar em você. Trabalhe isso e poderá ver pessoas aparecendo sem que você espere.

Trabalho
O trabalho pode ser bem estressante na primeira metade do mês. Irá testar sua resistência, capacidade de fazer boas escolhas e também sua habilidade de inovar e sair de zona de conforto. Preste atenção no dia 9, que é quando poderá sentir maior dificuldade neste sentido, inclusive havendo risco de perder algo importante neste setor. Para quem gosta de se sentir seguro sempre, certamente será um desafio. A partir do dia 23, tem mais chances de obter ganhos. Sua vida financeira entrará em pauta e você deve colocar em prática tudo o que aprendeu com os desafios do começo do mês.


Leão
A comunicação estará a seu favor, pois Mercúrio ingressa em seu signo no dia 6. Boa fase para aprender mais, por isso pode ser interessante buscar algum curso rápido ou se envolver com palestras ou rodas de discussões, e também falar mais, expor suas ideias criativas. O momento com os amigos será bem proveitoso. Você pode ainda se isolar mais na primeira metade do mês e ter algumas crenças confrontadas. Ja a segunda metade do mês quando Sol e Marte ingressam em seu signo é o momento de brilhar e demonstrar todo seu potencial. Coloque ao mundo aquilo que sabe fazer de melhor e vá atrás do que deseja.

Amor
Se envolverá mais com os amigos neste momento e, se não estiver em um relacionamento, pode sair algum romance daquele grupo de amizades. Se estiver em uma relação é importante trazer à tona os ideais que possuem em comum. Pense mais no futuro e façam planos. Por volta do dia 17 pode ter alguns confrontos com o outro. É a oportunidade de enxergar a situação por um ângulo pessoal e tomar alguma atitude no sentindo de mudança. O que no outro lhe incomoda mas que tem medo de expressar? Não se preocupe, pois será mais fácil de fazer isso a partir do dia 23.

Trabalho
Pode passar por dificuldades por volta do dia 9, sentir uma limitação e cobrança e se deparar com difíceis escolha. Por mais limitadora que seja a situação tome cuidado com os exageros e a dramaticidade. No geral é um bom mês para ganhos e avanço na carreira mas dependerá da sua capacidade de expor ideias e se comunicar. Trabalhe isso ao longo do mês e para ir ocupando seu espaço e certamente na segunda metade do mês estará com confiança total para avançar neste setor. A partir do dia 25 há uma abertura maior para fechar bons negócios. Trabalhe as ideias criativas ao longo de todo mês e saiba vendê-las ao final.


Virgem
Com seu regente Mercúrio ingressando em Leão a partir do dia 6 talvez seja melhor você entrar em um processo de autoconhecimento, em que será mais fácil de racionalizar questões inconscientes. O dia 9 pode marcar um momento em que sua expressão fica limitada e podada e tenha que lidar com esse seu lado mais sombrio. Talvez se preocupe tanto com o coletivo e o futuro que esqueceu de focar nas necessidades pessoais e no presente. Se tiver filhos tal condição pode se refletir neles, pois envolvem sua criação e expressão. Por volta do dia 23 pode sentir a necessidade de se recolher mais e junto vem acompanhado um sentimento de ansiedade, agitação e nervosismo. Por isso vale dar atenção ao longo do mês inteiro aos processos do inconsciente, através das “coincidências” ou também dos sonhos. Perceba os sinais que o universo lhe envia, que na verdade você atrai. Será que isso que o que atrai é bom ou ruim? E se for ruim, que comportamento não está tão consciente assim que precisa ser analisado de forma mais racional?

Amor
O dia 9 se mostrará especialmente complicado para romances. Será que não nutre um apego a alguém? O quanto a carência faz que se submeta a situações que não gostaria de fato?  É um momento de maior reflexão em que o outro lhe apresentará de com coisas que talvez não queira ouvir ou enxergar, mas será necessário fazer esse processo de interiorização agora para resgatar uma autoconfiança e aí a capacidade e fazer boas escolhas e atrair pessoas e situações boas também.

Trabalho
Felizmente neste setor tudo caminhará bem, mas deve saber trabalhar melhor as relações o que pode então se deparar com todas as questões ditas anteriormente. Mas é uma boa fase pra estabelecer parcerias e sociedades, apenas saiba ouvir e se comunicar, estabeleça uma troca saudável. Isso ficará mais fácil a partir do dia 25, em que você chegará a conclusões mais pragmáticas e objetivas e será capaz de se expressar mais efetivamente. Atenção por volta do dia 14, que será um período de sorte a você e aí podem aparecer oportunidades.


Libra
Vênus, seu regente, ingressa em Gêmeos no dia 5, um signo que ressoa bem com o seu e é a chance que tem para adquirir mais conhecimento, seja através de estudos ou mesmo viagens. O estrangeiro pode aparecer mais a você de alguma maneira. Trabalhe seus ideias e metas, mas tome cuidado com as expectativas que nutre. Se estiver com alguma ação na justiça poderá obter um resultado positivo. Por volta do dia 9 alguma situação familiar ou relacionada à casa pode se complicar. Se investiu em um imóvel pode aparecer de fato algo que atrapalhe, ou viva uma situação tão limitadora e sob tanta pressão que será a gota d’água para proporcionar alguma mudança na vida. Esteja bem consciente de seus objetivos para não ter uma atitude drástica apenas pelo calor do momento. Por volta do dia 23 você estará mais sociável e conviver com amigos lhe apetecerá mais. É interessante também se envolver mais com a comunidade, como por exemplo realizar algum trabalho social.

Amor
Você pode ter dificuldades em seu relacionamento agora no início do mês e, se não estiver em um, pode ser melhor estar só que em má companhia. Pode passar por um joguinho de poder que reflete um medo de perder e com isso vem a possessividade e o ciúme. Mas a partir do dia 11 o outro pode se fazer mais presente em vários setores de sua vida, como por exemplo no trabalho e no grupo de amigos. O quanto você está com essa pessoa fixa em sua mente e acaba levando-a para todos esses ambientes? De qualquer maneira é interessante trabalhar uma relação de amizade ali, em que há mais uma troca mental e convergência de ideias do que um vínculo emocional propriamente dito. Se estiver em um relacionamento poderá, mais para o fim do mês, se envolver com o futuro do casal com mais ações de fato, saindo um pouco do plano das ideias somente.

Trabalho
Até meados do mês sua carreira precisará ainda de atenção, especialmente por volta do dia 9 a 11. Será que constrói o ideal e o futuro que sempre quis? Quando algo não dá certo deve encarar o desafio como uma oportunidade de mudança e crescimento. Na verdade é sua alma que pede tal mudança, mas como é muito difícil tomar a decisão passa a ser necessário forçar tal escolha. A partir do dia 23 seus objetivos podem ficar mais claros e você vislumbrar melhor o que vem pela frente e quais os próximos passos.


Escorpião
A comunicação, o conhecimento e entendimento serão essenciais. O quanto questões ficam mais complicadas do que realmente são porque se insere em um mar de ideias e crenças que acarretam em conclusões erradas? Suas ideologias serão confrontadas, principalmente por volta do dia 9. Se estiver com algum curso em andamento pode passar, também por volta deste dia, por um desafio, uma limitação que talvez resulte até em sua interrupção. As coisas têm seu tempo certo para acontecer, não adianta, por exemplo, colher um fruto sem que este tenha amadurecido. Talvez seja de fato encarar que não está em condições maduras o suficientes ainda para determinadas situações, mas nada impede de trabalhar isso ao longo do mês. Por isso tente entender o que deu de errado e como pode melhorar.

Amor
No início do mês poderá sofrer um confronto, sentir-se sob domínio ou controle do outro, o que pode levar a uma postura mais reativa, mas também se mostra um momento oportuno para trabalhar algumas crenças pessoais. No decorrer, será muito mais fácil observar saídas racionais para qualquer crise afetiva que estiver passando. A melhor terapia, no caso, é a conversa e saber também escutar o que o outro tem para lhe dizer. Não será um mês de conflitos e sim de resoluções, de deixar os conflitos no passado e seguir adiante com uma nova ideia e postura.

Trabalho
Marte, um de seus regentes, ingressa em seu setor de carreira a partir do dia 20. O final do mês se mostrará de fato mais estressante a você, mas com oportunidade de assumir as rédeas da situação, ter atitude e liderança para construir melhor seu espaço profissional e atender suas metas financeiras. Você vai fugir da guerra ou vai à luta? Para isso será importante desenvolver o auto-valor, característica que será muito ativada na segunda metade do mês, mas que para você já começa a valer a partir do dia 6 através de ideias mais criativas, mais envolvimento e participação no trabalho.


Sagitário
Que tal fazer aquilo que mais gosta? Viajar. O mês inteiro está favorável a isso, sendo que também é válido viajar mentalmente, através de um novo conhecimento. Expanda suas ideias e forma de pensar. A necessidade de ampliar seus horizontes pode aparecer mais forte por volta do dia 23. É um período bom para viagens, mas tome cuidado com a ansiedade. Pode sentir essa necessidade e fechar uma viagem de uma hora para outra, sem planejar direito e aí sofrer imprevistos ou até se colocar em situações perigosas. Atenção ao dia 9 em que seu dinheiro pode estar em risco. Procure trabalhar ainda na primeira metade do mês sentimentos que não costuma dar atenção.

Amor
Logo no início do mês pode ter dificuldades de expressão neste setor. Talvez vá com muita sede ao pote por alguém que não está interessado. Mas anime-se, pois Vênus ingressa em Gêmeos, seu signo oposto a partir do dia 5 e vem abençoar sua vida afetiva. Com ou sem alguém irá olhar para o outro com mais atenção e interesse. Demonstrar tal interesse pode ser positivo para iniciar uma relação ou, se estiver em uma, viver uma fase mais romântica, valorizando o outro. Por volta do dia 18 terá a maior oportunidade, mas pode vir acompanhada também de muitas expectativas. Já as proximidades do dia 24 pode se mostrar especialmente difícil, em que sentirá uma cobrança e responsabilidade maior e talvez estar em um relacionamento não faça com que se sinta tão bem. Tenha bem consciente quais são suas metas afetivas e de que nem sempre tudo será flores.

Trabalho
Preste atenção no dia 9, em que poderá passar por alguma perda financeira. Vale você fazer um trabalho de ressignificar a forma como investe. Para isso é muito válido trabalhar seus contatos com o intuito de formar uma parceria ou sociedade. É o momento de ampliar seus negócios e pode se aliar a outra pessoa que sirva como combustível para suas ideias criativas. Claro que toda parceria vem com desafios e dificuldades, que podem acontecer ainda este mês por volta do dia 24. Mas encarando e assumindo responsabilidade por seus ideais não tem porquê não supera-las.


Capricórnio
Prepare-se para importantes mudanças que podem vir por volta do dia 9 e que podem estar relacionados ao afetivo, mas também envolver seus projetos pessoais. Qual sua disposição para correr riscos? Poderá viver uma situação limite neste momento em que a escolha que ali fizer será crucial. A partir do dia 23 pode se envolver mais com estudos, o meio acadêmico, conhecimento, ou mesmo viagens.

Amor
Os relacionamentos, de qualquer natureza, serão ainda muito trabalhados e podem te colocar em situação de pressão. O que no outro lhe incomoda mais? Na verdade é uma característica que você reconhece em si, mas talvez não aceite. Ao longo de todo o mês irá racionalizar mais essa questão para lidar com os próprios demônios internos e resgatar sua confiança afetiva. Enquanto não a tiver irá atrair pessoas ou situações complicadas em seu relacionamento. Em resumo, é sua oportunidade de se renovar e reciclar. O dia 9 pode se mostrar interessante neste sentido. O quanto o outro exerce poder sobre você? O quanto por carência você assume uma identidade que não é a sua e só gera perdas? A partir deste dia de Lua Cheia pode ser comum se envolver em mais brigas e dramas. Deve eliminar tudo aquilo que não lhe pertence e só atrasa neste setor. Mas para isso é preciso, primeiro, saber reconhecer.

Trabalho
Com Vênus ingressando em seu setor de trabalho e rotina serão muito mais prazerosas as atividades este mês. Pode inclusive se beneficiar com contatos e também estabelecer algumas parcerias. Meados do mês, por volta do dia 14 a 18 pode surgir uma oportunidade bem interessante. Controle as expectativas e aceite o que vier sem julgamentos. Você poderá também receber apoios e patrocínios na segunda metade do mês. Seu sucesso financeiro estará muito atrelado à confiança que sente. Para isso será importante trabalhar questões pessoais, aquelas que costuma guardar a sete chaves.


Aquário
Sua saúde precisa de uma atenção ainda na primeira metade do mês, especialmente por volta do dia 9. Pode passar por uma situação de risco sem se dar conta ou mesmo aparecer algum sintoma que não deve negligenciar. Cuide também de sua saúde psíquica que pode, inclusive, ser a origem de sintomas físicos.

Amor
Este será um mês muito favorável neste setor, pois Vênus abençoa sua casa de prazeres e romances a partir do dia 5. Pode ser um período em que comece a pensar mais em filhos também. O outro se fará mais presente, principalmente na segunda metade do mês. Com isso pode vir aborrecimentos sim, mas também virá momentos de prazer. A ideia é você manifestar aquilo que gosta e a pessoa que é, e quem se aproximar e gostar de você por conta disso representa um alvo certeiro. Por volta do dia 14 você tem grandes chances de aproveitar mais esse lado bom da vida.

Trabalho
A rotina pode ser bem estressante na primeira metade do mês, o que pode agravar em problemas de saúde que talvez não dê tanta importância assim. Este início de mês é marcado por confrontos, em que deverá perceber até que ponto você tem autonomia e controle da situação. Se não sabe a resposta talvez não tenha encontrado ainda seu verdadeiro potencial naquele serviço ou talvez nem seja aquilo que queira fazer de fato. Tal incômodo vem para despertar em você esse potencial, mesmo que acompanhado por difíceis escolhas.


Peixes
A primeira metade do mês será ainda um momento oportuno para romances, curtir e aproveitar mais a vida. Mas o quanto sua expressão é notada? Você tem voz própria ou se deixa mesclar com um grupo e adquire um falso sentimento de pertencimento. Por volta do dia 9 pode perceber que determinados grupos ou mesmo amigos não têm a ver com seu momento. Fazer a escolha de se distanciar deles pode ser difícil e um possível conflito neste setor pode fazer com que tome atitudes drásticas. Mas o quanto isso realmente te impulsiona ou lhe prende? Vênus ingressa em seu setor familiar e doméstico, indicando um bom período para investir em imóveis, fazer coisas em casa ou trabalhar as relações familiares.

Amor
A fase é muito favorável a romances, principalmente por volta do dia 7. Se estiver em um relacionamento é a oportunidade de curtir mais e se estiver pensando em filhos também pode cogitar melhor a ideia. A libido estará em alta ainda, por isso se não estiver em um relacionamento expresse-se de forma criativa, vivendo os romances que aparecerem, mas não necessariamente pensando em algo sério ainda. Pode refletir mais a respeito no final do mês, por volta do dia 25. Preste atenção por volta do dia 14 em que há chances de aparecer alguém interessante.

Trabalho
A rotina pode apertar e você deve ainda assim desenvolver mais ideias criativas e mostrar seu talento. Certamente terá energia, mas que também pode se converter em ansiedade e pressa. Confie aquilo que faz de melhor e não tem como errar, mas saiba também inovar quando for solicitado. Por volta do dia 23 que pode sentir mais o cansaço físico e deve ter atenção com a saúde.

How can you actually live off the grid?

Many people are struggling to find affordable housing in Australia's major cities. On top of that, they have rent, electricity and water to pay for. Some are looking for an alternative. They have found it in off the grid living. How can you actually live off the grid?

  1. What is Off the Grid Living?
  2. Who Lives Off the Grid?
  3. How to Plan for Off the Grid Living
  4. How Much Does Off the Grid Living Cost?

What is Off the Grid Living?

Basically, living off the grid refers to living without relying on public utilities such as electricity and water. Aboriginals and other indigenous cultures did it for thousands of years. We are accustomed to electricity, water and even the internet. That doesn't mean we can't live off the grid, though. Technology is available that makes it possible to have the things we need, but still live off the grid, either totally or partially.

Living off the grid

Living off the grid requires some lifestyle changes. Are you ready to:

  • Do without the creature comforts of the city?
  • Willing to become more self-sufficient?
  • Learn how to repair whatever needs repairing?
  • Ready to work hard doing manual labour?

These can be radical changes for some, but many people who have chosen off the grid living have discovered a more peaceful lifestyle away from the bustle of city living and the constant need to earn money.

Who Can Live Off the Grid?

Many people see people who live off the grid as old-fashioned "hippies." Those who live off the grid disagree. They are responsible people with families who have chosen an alternative lifestyle. They may live in an isolated location, but they have a network of friends and often get together with them. Some even live in cooperative villages.

The Goolawah Cooperative in northern New South Wales is one example of a cooperative community. Members of the community have solar power, composting toilets and collect rain water. Many of the homes on the cooperative are owner-built to save money. The cooperative also has public areas.

Jill Redwood has been living off the grid in Goongerah, East Gippsland since 1983. She now lives in "relative luxury" after having lived in a van, a tipi and a shack, none of which had running water or electricity. She built her house out of old railway sleepers and poles from the nearby forest. She has a waterwheel that pumps water to her home and solar panels for electricity.

Others haven't gone through what Jill has gone through. Some had homes in major cities, but decided they wanted to leave the "rat race." They sold their homes and bought property in a rural area. With the money from their homes, they were able to build comfortable homes with enough solar power and backup batteries to have electricity and water 24 hours a day.

Some people who live off the grid are within half an hour's drive of a city. They get jobs in the city and live normal lives. Others have internet connections and work as freelancer writers or have other online jobs. The difference is that they don't have a high mortgage to pay off and high electricity bills. They put their money back into their land, improving their homes and establishing organic vegetable gardens. Their children attend the local school and have a social life just like children in the city.

How ot live off the grid

A few people live off the grid in the middle of the city. Michael Mobbs lives in Chippendale, in the heart of Sydney. While he may not be completely off the grid, his terrace house costs just $300 per year thanks largely to his solar panels and storage batteries.

People who live off the grid are often passionate environmentalists. They see the pollution we produce in the cities and don't want to be part of the environmental problem. By having solar power and raising their own vegetables, they feel they are making less of a detrimental environmental footprint on the earth. They learn how to recycle almost everything and use as little plastic as possible.

How to Plan for Off the Grid Living

In our society, you can't simply wander off into the bush and expect to adapt. You need a plan and you will need money to fund your off the grid lifestyle. How much money you need will depend on your plan.

You will probably need to:

  • Find land to build a home on. Land is inexpensive in areas that don't have water and power.
  • Have a well for fresh water.
  • Conform to council regulations. You will need a building permit. In some more remote areas, council permission is not needed.
  • Install solar power. This may be one of your biggest expenses.
  • Install a sewerage system. Many people use composting toilets.

How Much Does Off the Grid Living Cost?

Jill Redwood built her house for around $3000 using scrap materials. In general, it costs anywhere from $5000 to $50,000 to build an off the grid house. That cost includes the land. In many rural areas, you can buy an acre of land for just $2000. Cooperatives and land sharing arrangements are another way to finance land. A cooperative will pool its resources while land sharing agreements are more informal. People with varying lifestyles will pool their money to buy larger parcels of land.

Solar power will be a major expense, but prices have come down considerably. Once your system is installed, you won't be paying for electricity and the system will soon pay for itself. Solar systems have been coming down in price. A 1 kilowatt system that cost $6000 in 2010 was only $2500 in 2014 and prices have fallen since then. Today, a 1kw system costs around $2150 and that includes installation. 1kw may not be enough for most people, but it illustrates the affordability of solar power. Larger systems cost less per kilowatt than smaller systems, too. 3kw systems that used to cost up to $20,000 are available for around $4500 to $5000 today.

How much does off the grid living cost?

The cost of water will depend on your location. Most people look for an area that has an abundance of water. They may have a water wheel or dig a well. People who live off the grid also collect rainwater and many have a greywater system for watering their gardens.

Let's say you spend the maximum of $50,000. That sounds like a lot of money, but when you purchase a home, you need to save at least 10 or 20 percent of the purchase price. On a $500,000 home, this can be $25,000 to $50,000. Many people have moved off the grid for those amounts, but don't have to pay a monthly mortgage. Once an off the grid home is built, it is self sustaining. You not only don't have a mortgage; electricity and water bills are a thing of the past.

When you add it up, off the grid living makes sense. It does require a change in lifestyle, but many people who have made the switch say they get a feeling of freedom when they live off the grid. They no longer have to work in jobs they don't like just to pay the rent. Instead, they pursue things they enjoy doing.

People who have adopted off the grid living often made "sacrifices" when they left the city. In time, many of them learned that those "sacrifices" were the very things that gave them a greater degree of freedom. They are no longer slaves to their mortgages and other bills. They may not be able to eat in expensive restaurants, but enjoy meals made from foods they have grown themselves. They may not go to pubs, but they have like-minded friends they get together with regularly.

Off the grid living may not be for everyone, but with life becoming so expensive, more people are contemplating making the switch to off the grid living. You can make the switch gradually or take the plunge and move away from the city. The choice is yours, but it's a choice worth thinking about.


          Claiming an investment property on a tax return   
Claiming an investment property on a tax return

If you own an investment property, you can claim many deductions on your tax return. Don't leave any deductions out. Even smaller deductions add up over time and help increase your deductions and your profits on your rental property. What expenses can you claim on your tax return?

Investment property tax 

  1. Interest Payments 
  2. Tenancy Costs
  3. Repairs and Maintenance
  4. Capital Works
  5. Depreciating Assets
  6. More Deductible Investment Property Expenses
  7. Disclaimer 

Interest Payments 

The interest you pay on a loan is often the largest expense you can claim on a tax return. If your loan is negatively geared, it can be an even larger part of your tax deduction.  

Remember that the interest you claim is not just the interest on the loan you take out to finance your purchase. You may also be paying interest on other expenses such as: 

  • Repairs and maintenance
  • Tenant related issues
  • Renovations 

If you are paying interest on anything related to your investment property, you can claim the interest on your tax return. However, the ATO does limit some types of interest payments. For example, if you own a holiday rental, you cannot claim interest payments on periods when you and your family stay on the property.  

The ATO may also question your interest deductions if you do not seem to be making an effort to rent your property. According to the ATO website, the property must be "genuinely available for rent." The two criteria they use to determine this are: 

  1. Advertising the property to give it greater exposure
  2. Considering "all the circumstances, tenants are reasonably likely to rent the property." 

If you don't advertise your property; ask for an inappropriate rent; or have restrictive rules for renting, you may not be able to claim interest on your investment property. Some restrictions include: 

  • Word of mouth or workplace advertising
  • Outside holiday periods when the likelihood of renting is low (if you have a holiday property)
  • A poor location or a property that is in poor condition
  • Conditions such as "no children" or "no pets" 

The ATO considers an investment property to be a property you actively try to rent. It is not a property you own in order to simply deduct expenses for or one that remains unrented for a long period of time.

Tenancy Costs 

Tenancy costs include advertising and the cost of a property manager. You can also claim: 

  • Costs related to establishing or altering your lease agreement
  • Landlord insurance costs
  • Travel expenses related to inspecting your property
  • Legal costs if you have to evict a tenant 

Travel expenses must be verified. You can't claim a deduction if you are on holidays, for example. Only travel expenses directly related to your investment property are allowed. You can even deduct petrol expenses for inspecting a property near your home. If you live at a distance, air travel and accommodation can be deducted, but you must satisfy the ATO that you are not deducting holiday expenses. For example, if you and your family fly to your investment property location, it may be considered a holiday expense.

Repairs and Maintenance 

Your investment property will need repairs and maintenance while it is occupied and between tenants. All of these expenses are deductible, so keep a record of all costs associated with repairs and maintenance. Don't leave out minor costs, either.  

Some jobs are considered "improvements" and are not tax deductible. For example, if you replace an old laminate kitchen benchtop with a granite benchtop, the ATO considers the new benchtop to be an improvement. Repair and maintenance issues that are deductible include: 

  • Replacing faulty guttering
  • Fixing a leaky tap
  • Repairing or replacing a faulty hot water system
  • Repairing a dishwasher  

To be on the safe side, get detailed explanations from the tradies you hire to make your repairs.  

Improvements to your property can help you get a higher rental yield, but they are not tax deductible. If you're in doubt, a qualified accountant can tell you what constitutes an improvement and what repairs and maintenance costs may be.

Investment property repairs and maintenance 

Capital Works 

And exception to the "improvements" rule is capital works done on your property. Capital works may include a home extension, a retaining wall or sealing a driveway. They are more expensive necessary expenses. You cannot claim the total amount in a single year for more expensive capital works. In most cases, you can claim 2.5 percent over 40 years. If you own a traveller's accommodation with at least 10 bedrooms, you can claim 4.0 percent over 25 years. Your accountant can tell you the rate that applies to your property.  

If you purchase a property that has capital works deductions that haven't been totally deducted, you can continue deducting them on your income tax return. Be sure you obtain the construction expenditure details from the seller. You can also hire a quantity surveyor to provide you with a depreciation and capital works deduction report.  

Capital works expenditures can be a complicated issue. Do not claim capital works expenditures without consulting a qualified professional. Some capital works may be "improvements" that do not qualify for a deduction.  

Depreciating Assets 

Depreciating assets include items like dishwashers, washing machines, carpeting, curtains and other items that wear out over time. While you cannot claim the full cost of these items, you can deduct their depreciation value based on the number of years the item is expected to last. To find out how much you can claim, download the ATO's Depreciating Assets PDF.  

An exception to the depreciating assets deduction is items that cost $300 or less. You can't deduct these inexpensive items. This can include items such as a dining table and chairs. While they may cost more than $300, the table and chairs are considered separate items and are not deductible.  

If you install solar panels or a solar hot water system, these are considered depreciating assets. If you receive a government rebate (or its equivalent), you need to deduct this from the cost of the solar system.  

More Deductible Investment Property Expenses 

The above deductibles are some of the major expenses you can deduct, but they are not the only ones. Basically, you can deduct most expenses from your profits. Other expenses you can claim include:  

  • Bank fees
  • Body corporate fees (if applicable)
  • Cleaning fees
  • Council rates
  • Electricity and gas (if you are paying them)
  • Water
  • Pest control
  • Bookkeeping fees (accountants, secretarial services, etc.)
  • Postage and stationery
  • Telephone calls
  • Lease costs (preparation of documents, registration, stamp duty)
  • Mortgage discharge expenses
  • Insurances related to your investment property 

While some of these expenses may be minor, you should include them all. Together, smaller expenses can add up. Items like telephone calls, postage and stationery and other smaller costs only apply to calls and letters directly involved with your investment property. You cannot deduct your entire phone bill, for example. Your accountant fees and other fees and charges must be related to your investment property.  

There is no reason to pay more on your tax return than you have to. Keep all your receipts and your accountant can help you get your legal deductions. And don't forget: your accountant fees are tax deductible, too.

          Scientists have developed transparent wood to replace glass   
Scientists have developed transparent wood to replace glass

Builders may be working with a new material in the future. It's called transparent wood. Researchers in the United States and Sweden have created transparent wood. The technique needs to be perfected, but in time, transparent wood may become as common as glass.

Transparent wood stronger than glass 

What is transparent wood?

The material that gives wood its brown colour is a polymer called lignin. Researchers at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Sweden and the University of Maryland in the United States have discovered a way to remove lignin from wood and produce a transparent "wood" that may replace window glass in the future.

The process of removing lignin is fairly easy. Researchers at the University of Maryland put blocks of wood in boiling water with sodium hydroxide and other chemicals. In about two hours, the lignin was leached out of the wood, giving them transparent wood.

In order to make the transparent wood useful, University of Maryland researchers then mixed epoxy resin into the transparent wood. They were able to make sheets up to a centimeter thick, but so far have been unable to make sheets larger than about 10cm in length or width. The transparent wood they made had about a 90 percent light transmittance rate.  

Researchers in Sweden used a slightly different process. They mixed acrylic (Plexiglass) with the lignin-free wood. The result was an almost transparent sheet that was twice as strong as ordinary Plexiglass. Although the transparent wood had a slightly hazy appearance, the researchers thought the haziness might be a benefit for the creation of solar cells.  

Uses for transparent wood 

Once the process is perfected, researchers believe transparent wood will have the benefits of window glass without the drawbacks. Transparent wood won't shatter like ordinary glass. Swedish researchers believe they will be able to laminate transparent wood to create load-bearing panels and beams.  

Ultimately, it may be possible to make semi-transparent homes out of transparent wood. While this may seem like a drawback, transparent walls would reduce the need to use lighting and can keep a house in a colder climate warmer through heat transference.  

Researchers also believe transparent wood can be used to make cheaper, more efficient solar panels. Light energy passes through the wood and may be more efficient than glass panels. Because transparent wood has the potential to be stronger than glass, some of the drawbacks of glass solar panels will be overcome.

 Uses for transparent wood

When will we be using transparent wood?

The possibilities for transparent wood are exciting, but research has just begun. More work needs to be done to find a way to make large sheets of transparent wood. While it may seem like that could take decades, we may be seeing it sooner than we realise.

 So far, only two universities have produced transparent wood. The fact that they have succeeded may compel manufacturers to donate money or do in-house experiments. With greater funding, we may see transparent wood sooner than we imagine. As the technique is perfected, we may see it used on many unexpected products:

  • Transparent beams could become a reality

  • Transparent or semi-transparent skylights may be produced

  • Transparent wood might be used as a roofing material

  • Solar panels may be produced using transparent wood

  • Transparent wall panels may replace traditional wall panels in parts of the house 

Those are just a few of the possibilities. While we may not see widespread use of transparent wood in the next few years, it's only a matter of time. The technology is here. Now it just has to be perfected.  

If it seems far-fetched, remember there was a time when no one believed we could watch moving pictures in our homes and many "experts" predicted the automobile would never replace the horse and buggy. Time will tell, but the potential for transparent wood is too great to ignore. We are almost certain to see it used in the future.

          5 Home style tips to borrow from India   
5 Home style tips to borrow from India

India is as diverse as it is big. With more than 1.2 billion people calling India home, the variation of housing and the disparity in living conditions is profound. Essentially, housing is dependent on region and socioeconomic status; from multi-million dollar mansion to poverty struck slums, there is a clear dichotomy in the Indian way of living.

While 22% of the population still live below the poverty line, India’s burgeoning middle class has grown exponentially over the past 15 years. The growth of the middle class has seen a boost in the Indian economy and a shift, albeit slight, in the standard of living for many Indians. Even so, as a result of the extreme contrast in living conditions still ever present across the nation , it can be said there isn’t a ‘fundamental’ Indian home. Instead, aspects of tradition, religion, culture and Western influence shape what we know as Indian homes today.

Here are 5 common interior trends that can bring a little Indian style into the home.

Indian home style 

1. Add bright colours

Colour plays a huge role in not just interior design in India, but in every aspect of their culture. While there may be a profound contrast in living conditions depending on region, wealth and population, it is the universality of the meaning of colour that connects India as a community. Colours are associated with emotion, status, religion, politics, festivals and celebrations; so it’s understandable why it plays a huge role in the home too.

Popular for their positive connotations and deep-rooted meanings, colours such as blue, green, deep red, and gold are all ideal palette choices for decoration in Indian homes. Blue is associated with one of the most favoured Gods in India, Lord Krishna and is therefore well liked and commonly used around the home. Green symbolises happiness, harvest and new beginnings, particularly because of India’s rich agricultural economy. In a general sense, Indians believe green is a symbol of nature and therefore an expression of God himself. On the other hand, deep reds and golds are symbols of great wealth and grandeur. Symbolising affluence and prosperity, gold is a favoured choice of colour for those Indians who are of higher socioeconomic status.  

Typically, Indians use colours in the home to represent particular feelings, certain beliefs and desired prophetic outcomes. While in the western world colour is usually selected based on personal preference and particular taste, in India colours are steeped in tradition and history, playing a role that extends far beyond aesthetic appeal.

Add bright colours 

2. Incorporate wooden furniture

Many furnishings found in the Indian home are made from a vast range of woods. Wood is favoured for its longevity, timelessness and strength. In India, there are five different types of traditional woods. For items such as chests of drawers and shoe racks, Marandi wood is the material of choice. It’s commonly known as cedar wood and is not only durable, but aesthetically pleasing too.

For bedroom and kitchen cabinets, sofa sets, dining sets and even flooring, Sheesham or Indian Rosewood is one of the most sought-after materials on the market. Sheesham is a hardwood popular for its versatility and ability to withstand fluctuating temperatures.  

Sal Wood is common for the structures in Indians homes, such as door frames, beams and window frames. It’s one of the most durable wood options and has the ability to endure the effects of water and underground conditions. Satin Wood can be found in many decorative pieces of furniture in Indian homes. This type of wood can be sourced from both central and southern India. While it is a durable, it is difficult to upkeep.  

And the most commonly used wood for furniture in India is Teak Wood. Locally produced as well as imported from Ghana and Burma, Teak Wood is a good all-rounder option, ideal for door frames, cabinets, tables, decorative items and many other common furnishings found in an Indian home.

3. Use muslin and different materials

Indian has many different materials locally grown and easily available that are used around the home. One of the most popular materials in India is Muslin. Originating in Bangladesh, muslin is finely woven, breathable fabric perfect for Indian’s unwavering heat. Commonly used to make garments of clothing, muslin is popular for its durability, natural fibres and ability to soften over time. Muslin is also used around the house, particularly in the kitchen.   

Silk is also a very popular material in India. Known as a material of luxury, silk possess a natural lustre and shine and is a premium material compared to others, like cotton. Similar to Muslin, silk is commonly used for clothing, but has also made its way into the home as a decorative item.

Different materials - Indian style 

4. Marigold and lotus flowers

There are around 15,000 flowering plant species in India. Different areas of India produce specific flowers, making some flora more popular in certain areas than others. The Lotus flower is the national flower of India and has a strong tie to religion. The Lotus flower is rich in meaning, symbolising divinity, fertility, wealth and knowledge. The Lotus is an aquatic plant with broad floating leaves and a pink flower. For those who have a pond in the garden, it’s typical for Lotus flowers to decorate the space.

Native to India, the Marigold flower is grown all throughout the nation year-round. Not only are they visually appealing, flowering in a bright orange and yellow, they also omit a strong perfume perfect for keeping bugs away. Marigold is the perfect flower for those who live in crop areas, as they repel any mosquitoes from coming close to the harvest.

5. Adopt a little Vastu shastra

Religion plays an integral role in the Indian way of living. Many cultural practices in India are shaped by religion, particularly Hinduism, which is the one of the four major religions found in India. Vastu shastra is a traditional Hindu system of architecture, which translates in a literal sense to the “science of architecture”. Essentially, it is an ancient Indian science of harmony and prosperous living. It encourages individuals to rid their life of any negativity and increase the level of positive energy, in particular energy found in the home. Indians believe that because people spend a lot of time inside, whether it is at work or at home, it’s imperative that there is positive energy within these places of confinement. Vastu shastra links buildings with mother-nature so that those who occupy a particular space live balanced, happy and harmonious lives.  

As such, Vastu shastra is a commonly adopted practice in many Indian homes. It is a philosophy dependent on different energies originating from the atmosphere, such as solar energy from the sun, lunar energy from the moon, as well as thermal, magnetic, light and wind energy too. The way Vastu shastra is achieved is through, for instance, the way the home is decorated, the correct placement of furniture, the direction in which one sleeps, how objects sit in relation to each other, what certain elements of the home are made from, the height of doors, the number of doors, the level of lighting, the size of the windows, and so on. While the criteria of a home deemed Vastu shastra may seem extensive, when executed correctly, the home will be a place of balance, contentment, peace and harmony.

          Especialistas en dermatología de Vithas Xanit han participado en la creación de una app sobre fotoprotección   
 El Hospital Vithas Xanit Internacional, perteneciente al grupo sanitario Vithas, acogerá el próximo lunes, 3 de julio, un nuevo Aula Salud dirigido a toda la población en el que el Dr. Jose Aguilera y la Dra. Mª Victoria de Gálvez ofrecerán algunas de las pautas más importantes para el cuidado de la piel en verano. En esta jornada se hablará también de la nueva aplicación móvil, iniciativa de la Fundación Piel Sana de la Academia Española de Dermatología y Venereología, en cuya creación han participado especialistas en dermatología de Vithas Xanit desde el panel de expertos de fotodermatología de la Universidad de Málaga, una app que ofrece al usuario estrategias de prevención basadas en su perfil para minimizar los riesgos de la exposición solar.

La jornada tendrá lugar en el Salón de Actos del Hospital a las 18.00 horas y en ella participaran el Dr. Aguilera, Doctor en Biología y experto en fotobiología dermatológica y la Dra. de Galvez, especialista en dermatología de Vithas Xanit. “Concienciar a la población es el primer paso hacia la prevención. En la actualidad tenemos nuevas herramientas para llegar a ella, como son las tecnologías de la información. Como especialistas debemos saber aprovechar estas tendencias  para que la información llegue a la población de forma directa,  y con una personalización de la misma. Esto es precisamente lo que la aplicación UV-Derma ofrece al usuario, una información instantánea sobre los niveles de radiación solar en un lugar y momento determinado, acompañada de consejos, riesgos y actitudes que el usuario debería tomar ante esa exposición de radiación ultravioleta a la que está siendo sometida. Y todo ello adaptado a la información personal del usuario, como su fototipo de piel, por ejemplo”, explica el Dr. Aguilera.

El evento, además de profundizar en estas nuevas herramientas que ofrecen al usuario un conocimiento general sobre fotoprotección con la perspectiva principal de la prevención del cáncer de piel, ofrecerá una charla sobre los avances en fotoprotección y el uso de antioxidantes en la prevención del cáncer de piel, que será impartida por la Dra. de Gálvez, “Con esta ponencia se pretende hablar sobre las últimas novedades en fotoprotección, tanto de la eficacia  de las cremas fotoprotectoras y el uso adecuado de las mismas, como de la  realidad sobre la  fotoprotección oral basada en la toma de antioxidantes para contrarrestar los efectos oxidativos que el sol produce en la piel”, explica la Dra. de Gálvez.

Esta jornada se enmarcan dentro del programa Vithas Aula Salud, un punto de encuentro formativo entre los profesionales de la atención sanitaria y todas aquellas personas que se preocupan por su bienestar, que tiene como objetivo formar e informar a la sociedad sobre todo lo relacionado con el cuidado de la salud.

Beer-Sheva, Israel (SPX) Jun 28, 2017
An innovative technique using light and tiny bubbles to propel microparticles at forces many times greater than previously achieved has been developed by Ben-Gurion University of the Negev researchers. The new technique could have significant implications in the development of micromotors and optical devices for use in solar cell optics. "What we ultimately hope to achieve is a highly accu

Hello FJ, a friend of mine once wondered what the backstory behind Sins of a Solar Empire was, and to that end I've roughly outlined a ******** of context in order to ask you a question. I know some details are out of whack, but this is just to establish a working baseline of things. Kiiind of an HFY story, mostly just creative BS though.

          Vibracija belih levov v srcu nove dobe   
Sodobni čas odpira vse več možnosti za razumevanje drugačnosti pomena posameznika v celoti in vpliva celote na posameznika. Vse pomembnejše postaja sledenje notranjemu klicu, ki zagotavlja avtentičnost in služenje potrebam prostora na osnovi osebnega poslanstva.
Andreja Cepuš je človek ki sledi svojemu klicu v polnem pomenu besede. To je njena zgodba.

Kdo je Andreja Cepuš?
Andreja Cepuš: Sama sebi pravim Social Artist, oziroma soustvarjalka nove kvalitete življenja. Zakaj Social Artist? Ker čutim, da ta koncept najbolje opiše mojo esenco. Kot umetnik vnaša svojo strast in veščine v svojo umetnino, tako Social Artist deluje v prostoru družbene realnosti.  Znotraj tega področja lahko namreč dosežemo srčiko notranjih človeških kapacitet in se ponovno uravnamo z višjim pomenom bivanja na tem planetu. Sama čutim, da s svojim delovanjem prispevam k aktivaciji najglobljega človeškega potenciala, soustvarjam prostor navdiha za inovativne, prebojne korake v sledenju resnični zgodbi posameznika ter aktiviram naš notranji voditeljski plamen.

Sicer pa sem radovedna raziskovalka življenja. Po študiju komunikologije in zaposlitvi ter sodelovanju z različnimi znanimi slovenskimi podjetji na širokem komunikacijskem polju (trženjsko komuniciranje in vodenje, pisanje, urednikovanje, spletni mediji, moderiranje, vodenje pogovornih večerov, oddaj), me je življenje usmerilo na pot izpolnjevanja svojega dušnega poslanstva, ki zajema dvigovanje zavesti skozi različne aktivacijske delavnice, namenjene spoznavanju notranje dimenzije človeka skozi avtentično energijo kreacije.

Andreji Cepuš se lahko pridružite na InCo dogodku "Intuitivna akcija v procesu kreacije" 23. septembra 2014 ob 16.uri.
Kot dolgoletna plesalka sodobnega plesa, občasna poetinja ter ljubiteljica umetnosti, se zavedam pomembnosti združevanja različnih svetov v skupno polje novih možnostih navdiha, iz katerega se lahko porajajo novi principi našega so-bivanja.
Model, ki ga razvijam združuje kreativni ženski princip, meditacijo, gib, poglobljeno komunikacijo, interaktivno delo, umetnost ter inspirativen prostor zaupanja ter podpore. Ker se zavedam, da se inovativnost rodi vedno zunaj okvirjev našega omejenega razmišljanja, delujem na ozaveščanju, navdihu, avtentičnem voditeljstvu, srčni inteligenci in prinašanju novih modelov kreacije v našo zavest.

Kaj je botrovalo odkritju ljubezni do belih levov?
Andreja Cepuš: Sprva morda mističnost, ki jih obdaja. Ob srečanju z njimi pa zagotovo spoznanje, da je ta mističnost resnična, saj te pogled iz oči v oči s temi živalmi dotakne v notranje bistvo in ga za vedno preoblikuje. Ob soočenju z njimi v njihovem domačem, naravnem okolju človek dojame, da se sooča s svojo naravo in kako zelo pomembno je, da jo vključi nazaj v življenje v celoti.

Česa nas uči legenda o belih levih?
Andreja Cepuš: Ljubezni in spoštovanja, če povzamem. Sicer pa legenda govori o tem, da so beli levi zvezdna bitja, ki združujejo zvezdno energijo v zemeljski obliki podobe leva. Po prepričanju prednikov utelešajo solarni logos na Zemlji in so tako otroci boga Sonca, ki sijejo čisto svetlobo na našem planetu. Legenda pravi, da so prišli na Zemljo, da pomagajo rešiti človeštvo v času krize. Ta čas je zagotovo zdaj.
Če gledamo znanstveno, so levi v vrhu eko sistema piramide življenja našega planeta, v vrhu vrha pa beli levi, kralji kraljev. Če odstraniš vrh piramide, se zruši celoten ekosistem planeta, torej če izginejo beli levi, se zruši ravnovesje našega planeta, česar kot človeštvo ne moremo preživeti.  Beli levi kot simbol predstavljajo moč, dostojanstvo, voditeljstvo, pogum in srce. Ko smo ljudje v najboljšem izrazu smo prav takšni: levjesrčni. Kar pomeni, če izginejo beli levi, tudi vrednote, ki jih predstavljajo, padejo iz svojega ravnotežja, to pa lahko sami vidimo, kam nas je pripeljalo.

Kako lahko izročila prenesemo na delovanje človeka v sodobnem času?
Andreja Cepuš: Pravzaprav zelo preprosto. Beli levi nas opominjajo, da ponovno obudimo manjkajočo vez z naravo in stopimo v naravni tok življenja, ki podpira rast in razvoj. Kot družba smo namreč zašli v umetni ritem, ta pa vodi v destrukcijo. Na nek način beli levi opravljajo vlogo ambasadorjev, saj s svojo prisotnostjo širijo zavest in nas kličejo v ponovni stik z naravo. Tudi ali predvsem v tisto, v sebi. Ko je ta uravnana z naravnim tokom in v ravnovesju, se lahko zgodi ravnovesje tudi na zunaj. S srečanjem iz oči v oči z vrednotami moči, voditeljstva, poguma in srca v živo v naravnem okolju, se ta del aktivira tudi v nas samih. Spoznanje, da so to kvalitete, ki osmišljajo naše bivanje in tiste, ki so nujno potrebne, da prestopimo iz smeri destrukcije v smer naravnega toka rasti in razvoja, botruje osmišljanju svojega osebnega poslanstva. Če menimo, da ne moremo vpeljati spremembe v družbi, to preprosto ni dovolj dobro. Ta misel izvira iz uma, ne srca. Beli levi aktivirajo spoznanje, da smo tu z namenom in nas opogumljajo, da stopimo na pot srčne osrediščenosti s koraki svojega notranjega voditelja, voditeljice. Kažejo nam princip voditeljstva nove dobe, kjer vsak posameznik živi svoj namen. In samo zamislimo si lahko, kaj se zgodi, ko zares začnemo vsi živeti svoj namen – ah, kakšna sprememba se lahko zgodi v delovanju naše družbe!

Kakšne posledice vidiš v ozaveščanju intuicije v poslovnem svetu?
Andreja Cepuš: Ogromne. Intuicija je tisti del narave, ki spada v trenutno še vedno 'manjkajočo vez' z nami. Je del naravnega toka in brez nje noben sistem ni celosten. Intuitivne zaznave nas vračajo v naravni tok rasti in razvoja, kar pomeni, da bo poslovni svet z uporabo tega dela prestopil na drugačne temelje in bo zato podprt z življenjem. Intuicija odpira v našem delovanju novo polje zaznav, ki omogoča organsko rast, hitrejše in elegantnejše premike, inovativne rešitve, modrejše zasuke in odločitve, čudežne navdihe. Odpira nas kreativni, ustvarjalni naravi in nas postavlja v širšo sliko kot jo je zmožen dojeti naš razum. V poslovnem svetu postaja vse bolj jasno, da stvari ne delujejo več kot so včasih, da so stari temelji odslužili in se rušijo, saj ne podpirajo življenja, temveč slepo ulico razvoja. Da lahko naredimo premik na nove, je nujno potrebna celostnost – in v celostnost spada tudi uporaba intuicije. Ne gre za bavbav, ne za kaj ezoteričnega, temveč za preprosto naravno logiko. In ta ni linearna. Tudi poslovni svet mora biti del te naravne logike, da bo ustvarjalnost privedla do nove družbe in novega načina sobivanja, kjer bodo posameznik, narava in družba vpeti v ekosistem z zavestjo skupnega soustvarjanja za skupno dobro in kjer bo glavno vodilo harmonična kvaliteta življenja za vsakogar.

Kaj prinaša praktična delavnica?
Andreja Cepuš: Odprt prostor navdiha in spoznavanje z naravnim tokom kreacije. S povabilom v globlji skok v svojo lastno naravo osvetljuje notranji osebni potencial in nas vodi v intuitivno zaznavanje prostora okoli sebe. Pred nas ne postavlja odgovorov, temveč odpira nova vprašanja, z namenom, da nas ta navdihnejo k raziskovanju novega polja. Izziva naše ustaljene strukture razmišljanja in nas vabi v sistem celostnosti.

          Peligro en la playa: esto es lo que tienes que hacer si te pica una medusa   

medusas

Ya está aquí el verano, y con él las vacaciones y, para muchos de nosotros, la esperada playa. Pasar unos días en los que tu mayor preocupación es echarte correctamente el protector solar siempre es un gustazo; pero hay ciertas cosas que nos puede estropear las vacaciones, como por ejemplo una picadura de medusa.

Las medusas son relativamente comunes en las costas del Mediterráneo, lugar elegido por muchos de nosotros para pasar unos días de relax tostándonos al sol, cuando los temporales de levante las acercan hasta la orilla. En principio las medusas no atacan "porque sí": solamente si se sienten amenazadas. Lo malo es que un cambio de temperatura cerca de ellas, como puede ser el que genera nuestro cuerpo al bañarnos en el agua, lo pueden interpretar como una amenaza, y picarnos.

¿Qué tenemos que hacer si nos pica una medusa? Os explicamos los pasos a seguir en caso de que lo necesitéis.

Las medusas tienen unas células urticantes que, al contacto con nuestra piel, son las que producen dolor, picor, escozor, inflamación y enrojecimiento. No es grave (siempre y cuando no seamos alérgicos), pero es necesario que sepamos cómo tratar estas picaduras en los primeros minutos hasta que podamos acudir a un puesto de socorro.

¿Qué debemos hacer si nos pica una medusa?

medusas

Lo primero que tenemos que hacer es lavar la zona en la que nos ha picado la medusa con agua salada o bien con suero: no debemos utilizar agua dulce, ya que rompería estas células urticantes y la picadura se puede propagar.

Para aliviar el dolor y el picor debemos aplicar frío en la zona en la que hemos sufrido la picadura. Si estás en playa seguramente alguien tenga hielo o una botella de agua helada: envuélvela en una toalla para no aplicar el frío directamente contra la piel y mantenla ahí durante diez o quince minutos.

A pesar de lo que hayas visto u oído en televisión, orinar sobre la herida no es una buena idea.

Si algún resto de tentáculo ha quedado adherido en la herida, debemos proceder a retirarlo usando unas pinzas o unos guantes para evitar una nueva picadura. Llevar en el bolso de la playa un botiquín de emergencia con pinzas y suero es una muy buena idea.

Y, por supuesto, tendremos que acudir a un puesto de socorro lo antes posible para que puedan evaluar el estado de la piel y, en caso necesario, administrarnos antihistamínicos.

Si estáis en la playa y hay aviso de medusas, bañaos con mucha precaución y permaneced atentos. ¡Que una picadura no os arruine las vacaciones!

          Tres circuitos para un entrenamiento semanal que puedes hacer en la playa trabajando todo tu cuerpo   

entrenamiento playa

Estamos en unas fechas en las que, unos antes y otros después, estamos a punto de disfrutar de las ansiadas vacaciones. Por delante días de relax y playa donde, aunque estemos en tiempo de ocio, también podemos disfrutar de otro tipo de entrenamientos alternativos.

Si eres de los que esperas con ganas el poder disfrutar de sol, agua y arena, en Vitónica también tenemos la rutina perfecta que encajará en tus días más veraniegos. Apunta tres circuitos para un entrenamiento semanal que puedes hacer en la playa trabajando todo tu cuerpo.

Ventajas de entrenar en la playa

Está claro que todos queremos llegar a las vacaciones lo más en forma posible, pero disfrutar de la playa no significa, ni mucho menos, dejar aparcado nuestro entrenamiento. De hecho, el entrenar en la playa, además de ser algo diferente y divertido que nos permite esta época del año, también nos proporciona una gran diversidad de ejercicios y muchas más ventajas.

  • Estabilidad y equilibrio: ejercitarnos en la arena nada tiene que ver con hacerlo sobre las superficies lisas donde estamos acostumbrados a realizarlo durante el resto del año. La irregularidad que nos proporciona la arena o la orilla del mar, nos ayudará a mejorar claramente la estabilidad de pisada y nuestro equilibrio general.

  • Fortalecimiento articular y muscular: además de trabajar el equilibrio, el entreno en este tipo de condiciones va a ayudarnos a trabajar la potencia y fortalecer articulaciones y tendones, aunque siempre hay que prestar una atención extra al terreno para evitar posibles lesiones.
    Del mismo modo, la resistencia que nos proporciona este tipo de superficie irregular hará que nuestro entrenamiento sea más exigente y requiera de un mayor trabajo muscular sobre todo de pierna.

  • Diversidad de ejercicios: en la playa podemos realizar gran multitud de ejercicios, no solo andar o correr por la orilla que es lo primero que nos viene a la cabeza. En el circuito que hoy os proponemos podéis comprobarlo y, además, podéis apuntar estas cinco ideas divertidas para hacer deporte en la playa.entrenamiento playa

  • Mayor consumo de energía: esta resistencia que nos impone el terreno hará que la intensidad de cada movimiento y de cada zancada se intensifique, lo que concluirá en un mayor gasto energético por el esfuerzo extra que necesitamos en cada movimiento. Apunta otra ventaja: ¡correr por la playa quema más calorías!

  • Un marco de entrenamiento incomparable: ejercitarse y respirar hondo a plena luz del sol y con el mar como fondo de escenario es, sin duda, un marco de entrenamiento incomparable tanto a nivel físico como mental.

Lo que nunca debemos olvidar en un día de playa

Beneficios, diversión y un ambiente inmejorable, todo esto es lo que nos puede ofrecer una jornada de entrenamiento veraniego en la playa pero, eso sí: siempre que lo hagamos correctamente y tomemos las medidas y precauciones necesarias para evitar posibles problemas.

  • Usa siempre protección solar: utiliza una crema con factor de protección apropiado siempre que vayas a entrenar al aire libre. Si no sabes cuál es la que más te conviene o cómo debes aplicarla echa un vistazo a nuestro post "protégete en la playa: cómo elegir y aplicar el protector solar". Recuerda que ser conscientes y responsables pasa por protegernos ante los rayos solares.

  • Evita la exposición solar en las horas "más críticas": intenta realizar el entrenamiento evitando las franjas horarias más peligrosas. Un buen horario puede ser a primera hora de la mañana o a última de la tarde, evitando de este modo las horas centrales del día y aprovechando las vitaminas solares más beneficiosas.

  • Hidrátate correctamente: siempre es fundamental seguir un buen patrón de hidratación antes, durante y después del entrenamiento, pero cuando lo hacemos en la playa y bajo temperaturas elevadas la importancia de hidratarnos y reponernos hídricamente es aún mayor.
    Del mismo modo, opta por llevar siempre alimentos adecuados para este tipo de jornadas veraniegas donde frutas y verduras ricas en agua y antioxidantes nunca deberán de faltar. protección solar

          Inga 3 Dam risks plunging DRC deeper into debt   
Sub-Title: 
New report finds that DRC likely to suffer financial losses, continuing energy poverty if hydropower project advances

Tuesday, June 27, 2017: Today, International Rivers is releasing the first in-depth economic study of the proposed Inga 3 hydropower project in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

Authored by noted British economist Tim Jones, “In Debt and In The Dark” exposes glaring flaws in the assumptions about the dam’s likely performance. The report finds that Inga 3 will likely plunge DRC deeper into debt, exporting needed power and delivering little, if any, to Congolese citizens while allowing international investors to reap the benefits.

“Claims about the benefits of Inga 3 are wildly overstated,” says Jones. “In fact, the dam would be a huge financial burden for the government and the Congolese people and provide little if any electricity.”

From the outset, Inga 3 has been plagued by dangerously optimistic assumptions about the dam’s performance, including power output well above the world’s most efficient plants, zero cost overruns, and unrealistically low transmission losses.

Using empirical evidence from the performance of similar hydropower projects in Africa and globally, Jones tested proponents’ claims regarding Inga 3’s socioeconomic benefits. He then forecasted the dam’s potential performance across a range of scenarios.

His findings highlight the serious financial risks associated with the Inga 3 hydropower project, and should be deeply concerning to the DRC government, potential investors, and the Congolese people.

“The DRC is one of the most resource-rich countries in the world, but suffers from massive energy poverty,” says Freddy Kasongo of Observatoire d’Etudes et d’Appui à la Responsabilité Sociale et Environnementale (OEARSE).

Emmanuel Musuyu of Coalition des Organisations de la Société Civile pour le Suivi des Réformes et de l’Action Publique (CORAP), adds, Unfortunately, this study shows that the Inga 3 Dam will further impoverish the DRC without delivering the energy that we need.”

The analysis shows that in the most likely scenarios, the DRC government will lose money on Inga 3. Even with fairly conservative estimates of cost overruns and generous assumptions of power generated, electricity prices, and low interest rates, DRC would stand to lose $618 million per year on the project, or nearly $22 billion over the project’s 35-year lifespan.

These financial losses could run as high as $1.5 billion to $2 billion per year under unfavorable conditions – up to $70 billion over the project’s lifespan – ballooning DRC’s debt levels and harming its long-term economic health.

“Not only will Inga 3 bring in no revenue, it will likely increase DRC’s debt burden,” says Rudo Sanyanga, International Rivers’ Africa Program Director. “And it won’t bring much-needed electricity access to the Congolese people. This would be a disastrous investment for the DRC.”

The project will sell most of its electricity to South Africa and to mines in eastern DRC. The report finds that losses along what would be the world’s longest transmission line to South Africa could leave very little power available to the mines, and the Congolese people would receive little benefit in increased electricity. Under the most likely scenario, 88% of the power would be sold to South Africa, leaving just 90 MW for Kinshasa, rather than the 1000 MW claimed. Under the worst-case scenario, no power at all would be available for sale to consumers in Kinshasha.

International Rivers’ study shows that the DRC could achieve greater energy access for its population if it used the funds intended for Inga 3 on micro-hydropower and solar energy. Such investment would support the DRC to generate enough electricity to increase access by an estimated 2.7 million people throughout the country.

Kate Horner, Executive Director of International Rivers, says, “If the DRC wants to become a true economic leader that sets a model for energy access in Africa, it should press the pause button on the Inga 3 Dam and instead explore energy solutions that can make a lasting difference for the Congolese people.”

          How a speck of light becomes an asteroid   
On the first day of the year 1801, Italian astronomer Gioacchino Giuseppe Maria Ubaldo Nicolò Piazzi found a previously uncharted "tiny star" near the constellation of Taurus. The following night Piazzi again observed this newfound celestial object, discovering that the speck had changed its position relative to the nearby stars. Piazzi knew that real stars were so far away that they never wandered—that they always appeared in the sky as fixed in location relative to each other. Due to the movement of this new object, the astronomer to the king of the two Sicilies suspected he had discovered something much closer—something within our solar system. Piazzi made history's first asteroid discovery. He named it after the Roman goddess for agriculture: Ceres.

          What Scotland’s Renewables Record Means for the Grid   

Record-breaking renewable generation in Scotland was cheered by environmentalists last month. But grid planners remain cautious.

Wind generation accounted for 46 percent of Scotland’s entire electricity needs in May.

“Market design and the existing network are not geared to the level of flexibility and adaptation that is required" in the country, said Aris Karcanias, co-lead of the clean energy practice at FTI Consulting.

"We are challenged as we're dealing with a system imbalance between generation source and demand pool, an aging grid, generation at the distributed level, a lack of transparency in data, and an uncertain regulatory framework often distorted by intervention," said Karcanias.

Karcanias said the need to upgrade the grid is becoming “a meaningful issue” in places such as Scotland where renewable energy penetration is climbing steeply.

Andy Bradley, director at Edinburgh-based Delta Energy & Environment, said news of renewables’ record contribution to the Scottish grid is “fantastic” -- but cautioned that “it’s only one part of the puzzle."

"A lot of other things need to happen," he said.

Advances in power electronics and data analytics tools, including improved weather forecasting techniques, mean it is now possible to plan and deal with the power quality and reliability challenge caused by increasing renewables penetration, he said. 

But current legislation is mainly focused on simply procuring renewable generation at the lowest possible levelized cost of energy (LCOE) and securing dispatchable generation services.

LCOE does not account for the value of trying to match electricity generation with demand, which is particularly important for renewables. 

And the lower the costs, the more it encourages the integration of intermittent renewables onto the grid. “This results in an increase in the system LCOE -- the integration costs which the system operators need to manage, according to Karcanias. 

In the U.K., raising renewable penetration above 20 percent could lead to problems if there are no upgrades to the system or changes in the market design, Karcanias warned.

Nevertheless, the Scottish experience demonstrates how existing grids can handle much higher levels over short periods.

According to an analysis by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) of data provided by WeatherEnergy, Scottish wind power output jumped by nearly 20 percent in May over same period last year.

Wind farms generated enough electricity to supply 100 percent or more of Scottish homes on 11 out of the 31 days in May, the organization said.

“The results for May are part of a growing trend of onshore wind increasingly providing Scotland's electricity needs,” Sam Gardner, WWF Scotland’s acting director, told GTM. 

“As capacity grows and technology develops, there is no doubt renewables will continue to produce the bulk of Scotland's electricity generation. There is significant additional capacity in development, with projects in planning or consented to which now total over 12 gigawatts," said Gardner.

Rising levels of variable renewable generation should not be a problem, Karcanias said -- if they are matched by grid infrastructure improvements, more flexible regulation, increased participation of distribution system operators and improved data and energy storage.

On grid infrastructure, there is a growing requirement for network capacity and increased interconnectivity, as well as improved generator and consumer information flows.  

Regulation, meanwhile, needs to accommodate advances in technology, enable the participation of storage and account for evolving consumer demands and participation in the energy mix.

The good news: Newer renewable energy projects are behaving more and more like traditional power plants. Modern wind or solar farms are increasingly able to improve production forecasts and deliver power quality services that make it easier for them to be integrated into the grid.

System operators are also well aware of the challenges presented by increasing renewable penetration, and are actively working on measures to deal with them.

A Scottish parliamentary committee published a report in February concluding that the grid could function without existing nuclear or thermal plants. 

“The existing network, plus the reinforcements that are coming, will be able to meet the energy demands in no-wind, high-wind, low-water and high-water scenarios,” said Julian Leslie, head of electricity network development at National Grid.

In essence, said Karcanias: “The capability of renewables needs to be improved to operate with a more efficient security margin, but I don't believe that in mature markets you're going to experience risk to supply, as adaptation and innovation is happening across the value chain."
