          Guest Post - a non-trump dystopian question      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Nworb Werdna writes: According to the Economist, women in India are more likely to have been beaten by their husbands than they are to have a paid job. This statistic made me wonder whether it was capitalism or feminism which was responsible for the great change that makes this statistic seem so shocking to us. (Of course, the whole world must have been like that before WW1). In particular, are Indian mothers, who don't work outside the home and have no choice in the matter, worse off than poor American mothers who must work outside the home and have just as little choice in the matter? Ie, would you rather live in the Wire's Baltimore, or in Uttar Pradesh? I take for granted that the ideal end state is Scandiwegian, where women can both work outside the home and access first class child care, flexible working arrangements, and so forth. But I'm genuinely not sure which of the two present dystopias is worse. Is it better to be in prison or out on the street? In favour of Baltimore: access to contraception, so you don't have to be a mother all the time. Access to electricity. Low risk of famine. Sewers, and public health generally, even if access to private health care in Alabama is out of reach for the poor. Family networks based around grandmothers generally less bloody than family networks based round the power of mothers-in-law. In favour of rural India: job security - ie a secure, known, social position as part of a household. Very low risk of automation taking your job away (at least until the village is electrified) Better care in old age. Social approval (not a negligible factor in happiness). The hope of being promoted in time to become a mother in law yourself. Averaged across the whole country, life is safer in the US than in India (homicide rate per 100,000 for women 1.0 in US; 1.4 in India). But I'm really trying to compare with the worst parts of the US and can't quickly find stats at state level for either. Likelihood of debt servitude pretty high in both countries, even though it is informal in the US and MBNA are probably less vicious than an Indian rural moneylender. Still, both can take your home. On balance, I think the US is probably still the better place to be poor. And the fact that people move from the countryside to the city and not the other way round is in favour of that conclusion. On the other hand, migration tends to follow from the breakup of traditional structures, and I am assuming their persistence. To be a woman refugee from a traditional society is probably the worst of all possible outcomes. I haven't factored in the role of hope in happiness. What do you all think? Heebie's take: First, you troll. For starters, It's too uneven to compare. It can't be overstated how awful it is to live in fear of violence - state-sanctioned spousal abuse is awful. But of course, not all the husbands in Uttar Pradesh are abusive, and some of the boyfriends and husbands in Baltimore are. The freedom of Baltimore is appealing, except that freedom doesn't feel like freedom when you've got a few kids that you need to provide for. I'm trying to take the question seriously. Both countries have enough extreme misery to make the comparison of "who is worst off" meaningless. Rather, I'm going to interpret the question to mean: In each country, where is the make-or-break line between immiseration vs. "skating by"? In which country can someone in misery more easily move to "skating by"? (Still an inadequate question - many people are perpetually weaving back and forth between the two states.) Ok, here's my answer: in either place, imo the make-or-break line is a strong social network. In the US, you absolutely must have people who can pick your kid up from school when they get sent home with a fever so that you don't get fired, and someone to bring their kids over and spend the evening with you shooting the shit and finding dark humor in the stress of the week. In India, I have no idea what the analogue would be. I don't even know how to think that through. If I had to invent something out of thin air, perhaps being able to have extended family who warmly welcomes you when you feel like violence is imminent, and a trusty mother-in-law who chews out her son and keeps his violence from escalating. In the absence of a strong social network, it's probably easier to create one from scratch in the US - start with your nearest church and FB mom group. I frequently see posts like, "This is weird, but I just don't have any girlfriends. I need some Momma friends. Anyone else? Let's start a play group!" and they seem to get pretty robust responses. But that's the devil I know - I have no idea how hard it would be in India....

          Cabaret at Everyman Theatre Stars Broadway Actors Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez in a program called 'Broadway Favorites: A Summer Cabaret      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

I congratulate Everyman Theatre for presenting their initial Summer Cabaret which includes the stars from their wonderful production of LOS OTROS, Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez. The event will be at Everyman's intimate rehearsal hall Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Judy McLane (MAMMA MIA!) and Philip Hernandez (LES MISERABLES) will be singing numbers from the Broadway songbook.

"Whether it's THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM from MAN OF LA MANCHA or familiar tunes from MAMMA MIA!, "Broadway Favorites: A Summer Cabaret" is sure to be a joyous experience" said Cabaret Director Noah Himmelstein. "We are delighted to reunite the remarkably talented stars of 2017's LOS OTROS for an evening of best loved Broadway entertainment.

Tickets are $40 for general admission (table seating) and are available online at www.everymantheatre.org, by phone at 410-752-2208 or at the Everyman Theatre Box Office (315 W. Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD.

The following is a Q. and A. with Hernandez, Himmelstein, and Musical Director Dan Green.

FOR PHILIP HERNANDEZ

1.How and when did you know about this Cabaret performance?

Noah Himmelstein, our director from Los Otros, called and said he was interested in having Judy and I kick off a Cabaret Series at Everyman. So, of course, I said 'Yes.'

2. You and Judy worked so well together. How do you feel about being reunited?

Working with Judy and Noah on Los Otros was a wonderful experience and I jumped at the chance to work with them both again. This is the fourth time that Judy and I will be working together. She's an exceptional talent and always a joy to work with. Everyman is a world class theatre and I'm so excited to be working here again.

FOR Noah Himmelstein:

1. How and when did you get the opportunity to direct BROADWAY FAVORITES?

As Associate Artistic Director at Everyman, I am often looking for programming that compliments the productions happening on the main stage. Vincent M. Lancisi, the Artistic Director, and I were talking about how wonderful it was to do the new musical Los Otros last year and how much we wanted to get music back into our space this summer. Creating a cabaret for two weekends this summer was a way to do this during a time when we are usually not producing. It so happened that the first idea I had-to bring back down two of our favorite artists, Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez-happily worked out.

2. Have you ever directed musicals or cabarets before?

Much of my work is in the development and directing of new musicals. I did a couple cabarets when I was first starting out, and have directed several gala performances-which requires crafting pre-existing material in the form of songs and stories to create a compelling, whole experience. I recently collaborated with writers Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty in this type of work.

3. The shows that are being represented include EVITA, WEST SIDE STORY, LES MIS, WICKED BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, MAN OF LA MANCHA...who selected these? By the way....BRIDGES is one of my favorites.

I wanted this to be a celebration of the music and memories of two artists who have an immense body of work on the Broadway, off Broadway and regional stage in many joyous and well-known pieces, in addition to material I believe our audiences would love to hear them do and that they would get a kick out of learning. It's been a very happy rehearsal period of much laughter and exquisite singing and storytelling.

4. Have you ever worked with Judy or Philip?

Last year, I directed Los Otros; a beautiful new musical by Ellen Fitzhugh and Michael John LaChiusa at Everyman that featured Judy and Philip. It's a stunning piece about the identity, social and racial politics of two Californians covering 40+ years of their lives. Judy and Philip gave remarkable performances as Lillian and Carlos, from ages 12 into middle age. The audience adored their epic talents and warm, engaging personalities. I'm thrilled to be working with them again in a much more informal environment where they'll be performing in our spacious rehearsal room.

5. How much time will you have to rehearse with them and how does one direct something like this?

It's about selecting specific material and arrangements with the actors and creating a narrative that feels part of, comments on, enriches the space and time we are performing it in. It's about balancing humor, pathos, and fun, in the hopes of crafting an evening that can deliver a theatrical experience with the life stories of two wonderful artists. With our second collaboration, we've developed a shorthand in working together. Judy and Philip also have performed in several shows together before Los Otros, including the original Broadway production of Kiss of the Spider Woman, so there is a long relationship to build upon.

6. What are you next working on?

I have several projects in development coming up at regional theatres and in New York. Most notably at Everyman, I'm directing a really terrific play by Chelsea Marcantel-Everything is Wonderful-about an Amish family who is irrevocably transformed by a freak accident in their community. I think those who were fans of The Book of Joseph will especially be thrilled by this piece, which also involves a deeply emotional time convention and mysticism to allow a family to really see each other. It begins performances late January 2019.

FOR DAN GREEN:

1.How did you get involved with this Cabaret?

I first met Noah Himmelstein, the director, from work we had done together with the composer Andrew Lippa on his oratorio I Am Harvey Milk-this fantastic choral piece celebrating the life of the gay rights activist. I'm also a composer and Andrew has been a longtime mentor to me, so it was nice to meet Noah in that capacity. I've split my career between composing and music directing. I have a passion for both, and I've been fortunate to meet some performers, directors, etc. on projects that I was music directing that I was then able to work with on my writing, and vice versa. I have a couple musicals that are hopefully getting premiere productions in the next couple years, in New York and around the country, so stay tuned!

2. What is it like be on the piano in the pit for the hit musical WICKED?

I've been lucky to sub for several Broadway shows since moving to New York. Wicked was one of my first and, thankfully, it has enjoyed a healthy run! I'm not there every night, so it takes a while to get used to jumping back into the show, but I've played it long enough now that I can relax and enjoy it-and the crowd cheering at the top never gets old.

3. How did you enjoy being associate conductor of ROCKY and how would you define Associate Conductor.

Rocky was a fantastic experience. I started assisting the songwriters, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, before the very first reading, and stayed with the show through its development until Broadway. Associate conducting meant that I was usually playing piano, but a couple times a week would get to conduct the show. The end of the show was the epic boxing match between Rocky and Apollo and the ring actually slid out into the house, over the conductor podium! We had a little button to press to bring the podium down to the floor so we didn't get decapitated. I wish we'd been able to keep the show open longer, but all of us had a blast and I was so lucky to work on it.

4. Have you worked before with Judy and/or Philip?

This is my first time working with Judy and Philip, but they had me in stitches within minutes of our first meeting, so I know Baltimore audiences are in for a treat!

5. Will there be any other instruments besides you on the piano?

Judy and Philip are pros who have worked together before, so they know what they want out of an evening like this-my job is to give them a nice musical support system. I'll write a few arrangements of existing tunes and accompany them from the piano. It will be great to celebrate some classic Broadway songs as well as some more contemporary numbers-there should be something for everyone.

Broadway Actors Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez Return to Baltimore for Everyman Theatre in a program called "Broadway Favorites: A Summer Cabaret"

Cabaret is only six performances on week-ends from July 13 t0 July 22, 2018.

I congratulate Everyman Theatre for presenting their initial Summer Cabaret which includes the stars from their wonderful production of LOS OTROS, Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez. The event will be at Everyman's intimate rehearsal hall Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Judy McLane (MAMMA MIA!) and Philip Hernandez (LES MISERABLES) will be singing numbers from the Broadway songbook.

"Whether it's THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM from MAN OF LA MANCHA or familiar tunes from MAMMA MIA!, "Broadway Favorites: A Summer Cabaret" is sure to be a joyous experience" said Cabaret Director Noah Himmelstein. "We are delighted to reunite the remarkably talented stars of 2017's LOS OTROS for an evening of best loved Broadway entertainment.

Tickets are $40 for general admission (table seating) and are available online at www.everymantheatre.org, by phone at 410-752-2208 or at the Everyman Theatre Box Office (315 W. Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD.

The following is the result of questions to Hernandez, Himmelstein, and Musical Director Dan Green.

FOR PHILIP HERNANDEZ

1.How and when did you know about this Cabaret performance?

Noah Himmelstein, our director from Los Otros, called and said he was interested in having Judy and I kick off a Cabaret Series at Everyman. So, of course, I said 'Yes.'

2. You and Judy worked so well together. How do you feel about being reunited?

Working with Judy and Noah on Los Otros was a wonderful experience and I jumped at the chance to work with them both again. This is the fourth time that Judy and I will be working together. She's an exceptional talent and always a joy to work with. Everyman is a world class theatre and I'm so excited to be working here again.

FOR Noah Himmelstein:

1. How and when did you get the opportunity to direct BROADWAY FAVORITES?

As Associate Artistic Director at Everyman, I am often looking for programming that compliments the productions happening on the main stage. Vincent M. Lancisi, the Artistic Director, and I were talking about how wonderful it was to do the new musical Los Otros last year and how much we wanted to get music back into our space this summer. Creating a cabaret for two weekends this summer was a way to do this during a time when we are usually not producing. It so happened that the first idea I had-to bring back down two of our favorite artists, Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez-happily worked out.

2. Have you ever directed musicals or cabarets before?

Much of my work is in the development and directing of new musicals. I did a couple cabarets when I was first starting out, and have directed several gala performances-which requires crafting pre-existing material in the form of songs and stories to create a compelling, whole experience. I recently collaborated with writers Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty in this type of work.

3. The shows that are being represented include EVITA, WEST SIDE STORY, LES MIS, WICKED BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, MAN OF LA MANCHA...who selected these? By the way....BRIDGES is one of my favorites.

I wanted this to be a celebration of the music and memories of two artists who have an immense body of work on the Broadway, off Broadway and regional stage in many joyous and well-known pieces, in addition to material I believe our audiences would love to hear them do and that they would get a kick out of learning. It's been a very happy rehearsal period of much laughter and exquisite singing and storytelling.

4. Have you ever worked with Judy or Philip?

Last year, I directed Los Otros; a beautiful new musical by Ellen Fitzhugh and Michael John LaChiusa at Everyman that featured Judy and Philip. It's a stunning piece about the identity, social and racial politics of two Californians covering 40+ years of their lives. Judy and Philip gave remarkable performances as Lillian and Carlos, from ages 12 into middle age. The audience adored their epic talents and warm, engaging personalities. I'm thrilled to be working with them again in a much more informal environment where they'll be performing in our spacious rehearsal room.

5. How much time will you have to rehearse with them and how does one direct something like this?

It's about selecting specific material and arrangements with the actors and creating a narrative that feels part of, comments on, enriches the space and time we are performing it in. It's about balancing humor, pathos, and fun, in the hopes of crafting an evening that can deliver a theatrical experience with the life stories of two wonderful artists. With our second collaboration, we've developed a shorthand in working together. Judy and Philip also have performed in several shows together before Los Otros, including the original Broadway production of Kiss of the Spider Woman, so there is a long relationship to build upon.

6. What are you next working on?

I have several projects in development coming up at regional theatres and in New York. Most notably at Everyman, I'm directing a really terrific play by Chelsea Marcantel-Everything is Wonderful-about an Amish family who is irrevocably transformed by a freak accident in their community. I think those who were fans of The Book of Joseph will especially be thrilled by this piece, which also involves a deeply emotional time convention and mysticism to allow a family to really see each other. It begins performances late January 2019.

FOR DAN GREEN:

1.How did you get involved with this Cabaret?

I first met Noah Himmelstein, the director, from work we had done together with the composer Andrew Lippa on his oratorio I Am Harvey Milk-this fantastic choral piece celebrating the life of the gay rights activist. I'm also a composer and Andrew has been a longtime mentor to me, so it was nice to meet Noah in that capacity. I've split my career between composing and music directing. I have a passion for both, and I've been fortunate to meet some performers, directors, etc. on projects that I was music directing that I was then able to work with on my writing, and vice versa. I have a couple musicals that are hopefully getting premiere productions in the next couple years, in New York and around the country, so stay tuned!

2. What is it like be on the piano in the pit for the hit musical WICKED?

I've been lucky to sub for several Broadway shows since moving to New York. Wicked was one of my first and, thankfully, it has enjoyed a healthy run! I'm not there every night, so it takes a while to get used to jumping back into the show, but I've played it long enough now that I can relax and enjoy it-and the crowd cheering at the top never gets old.

3. How did you enjoy being associate conductor of ROCKY and how would you define Associate Conductor.

Rocky was a fantastic experience. I started assisting the songwriters, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, before the very first reading, and stayed with the show through its development until Broadway. Associate conducting meant that I was usually playing piano, but a couple times a week would get to conduct the show. The end of the show was the epic boxing match between Rocky and Apollo and the ring actually slid out into the house, over the conductor podium! We had a little button to press to bring the podium down to the floor so we didn't get decapitated. I wish we'd been able to keep the show open longer, but all of us had a blast and I was so lucky to work on it.

4. Have you worked before with Judy and/or Philip?

This is my first time working with Judy and Philip, but they had me in stitches within minutes of our first meeting, so I know Baltimore audiences are in for a treat!

5. Will there be any other instruments besides you on the piano?

webRNS Brett Kavanaugh4 070918(RNS) — President Trump has nominated U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be his Supreme Court nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, setting the stage for a heated confirmation battle that will likely focus on his views regarding both law and religion.

(RNS) — President Trump has nominated U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Brett Kavanaugh to be his Supreme Court nominee to replace Justice Anthony Kennedy, setting the stage for a heated confirmation battle that will likely focus on his views regarding both law and religion.

Trump made the announcement from the White House on Monday evening (July 9) after keeping observers guessing for several days.

“Judge Kavanaugh has impeccable credentials, unsurpassed qualifications, and a proven commitment to equal justice under the law,” Trump said, as Kavanaugh stood nearby with his wife and children. “He is a brilliant jurist with a clear and effective writing style universally regarded as one of the finest and sharpest legal minds of our time.”

President Trump greets Judge Brett Kavanaugh, his Supreme Court nominee, in the East Room of the White House on July 9, 2018, in Washington. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)President Trump greets Judge Brett Kavanaugh, his Supreme Court nominee, in the East Room of the White House on July 9, 2018, in Washington. (AP Photo/Evan Vucci)When Kavanaugh spoke soon after, he was quick to talk about his faith.

"I am part of the vibrant Catholic community in the D.C. area," Kavanaugh said, after mentioning his Jesuit high school. "The members of that community disagree on many things, but we are united by a commitment to serve."

Kavanaugh, who once clerked for Kennedy, has built a high-profile career tailor-made to please many stalwart conservatives: He helped author the Starr Report on then-President Bill Clinton’s affair with Monica Lewinsky, represented Cuban child Elian Gonzalez pro bono to keep him from returning to the island nation, and was a lawyer with the George W. Bush campaign during the Florida recount.

But since being appointed to the District Columbia Circuit of the Court of Appeals, Kavanaugh has also issued rulings that speak directly to hot-button issues among people of faith, such as abortion and religious liberty.

“He’s going to move the court to the right of the man who he clerked for,” said Micah Schwartzman, a University of Virginia School of Law professor who specializes in religion and the U.S. Constitution. He noted that the most lasting impact of Kavanaugh’s appointment may be how it reshuffles the calculus of the court, saying that confirming him will make it “more likely Chief Justice John Roberts will be the swing vote.”

Many have noted Kavanaugh's dissent in Garza v. Hargan, when the court allowed an undocumented teenager who had crossed the border from from Mexico into Texas as an unaccompanied minor to get an abortion while residing at a government-funded shelter. He argued the 2017 ruling was “ultimately based on a constitutional principle as novel as it is wrong: a new right for unlawful immigrant minors in U.S. government detention to obtain immediate abortion on demand.”

(AP Photo/Pablo Martinez Monsivais)Kavanaugh also wrote a lengthy dissent in another case when the court declined to take up a case brought by a group of priests who objected to the Obama administration’s rules regarding contraceptive coverage.

Some conservative observers, however, felt that his dissent wasn’t, well, conservative enough. David French at the National Review argued last week that Kavanaugh erred by purportedly suggesting the government has a compelling interest to provide contraception to a religious organization that opposes it.

“While the government may well deem that contraceptives provide many general benefits (and Kavanaugh outlines those benefits in his opinion), that is not the same thing as holding that those general benefits are sufficiently compelling as applied to the employees of a small religious nonprofit,” French wrote.

But in another National Review piece, Justin Walker — assistant professor at the University of Louisville Brandeis Law School and former clerk of both Kennedy and Kavanaugh — argued the D.C. circuit judge is ultimately a “warrior for religious liberty.”

(AP Photo/Dennis Cook)Responding to an article in the conservative publication The Federalist critical of Kavanaugh, Walker noted that Kavanaugh chaired the Federalist Society’s Religious Liberty practice group in the 1990s, offered pro bono work for “cases defending religious freedom,” and “represented a synagogue pro bono in a local zoning dispute.” The image posted above the article is one of Kavanaugh shaking hands with Pope John Paul II.

"Judge Kavanaugh believes his job is to apply the law objectively, without regard to his personal views," Walker said in an email to Religion News Service. "Part of applying the law objectively includes applying the Constitution. He also understands that our founders believed deeply in religious liberty, and that the Constitution they wrote protects the free exercise of religion."

Kavanaugh also reportedly volunteered his time on a Supreme Court religious liberty case with Kelly Shackelford, president and CEO of First Liberty Institute, and Jay Sekulow, one of Trump’s lawyers who has long opposed the portion of the IRS tax code that bars nonprofits from endorsing candidates for office.

A First Liberty Institute representative confirmed to RNS that the 2000 case was Santa Fe Independent School District v. Doe, where the court ruled that a policy allowing student-led, student-initiated prayer at high school football games violated the establishment clause of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

I congratulate Everyman Theatre for presenting their initial Summer Cabaret which includes the stars from their wonderful production of LOS OTROS, Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez. The event will be at Everyman's intimate rehearsal hall Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m.

Judy McLane (MAMMA MIA!) and Philip Hernandez (LES MISERABLES) will be singing numbers from the Broadway songbook.

"Whether it's THE IMPOSSIBLE DREAM from MAN OF LA MANCHA or familiar tunes from MAMMA MIA!, "Broadway Favorites: A Summer Cabaret" is sure to be a joyous experience" said Cabaret Director Noah Himmelstein. "We are delighted to reunite the remarkably talented stars of 2017's LOS OTROS for an evening of best loved Broadway entertainment.

Tickets are $40 for general admission (table seating) and are available online at www.everymantheatre.org, by phone at 410-752-2208 or at the Everyman Theatre Box Office (315 W. Fayette Street, Baltimore, MD.

The following is a Q. and A. with Hernandez, Himmelstein, and Musical Director Dan Green.

FOR PHILIP HERNANDEZ

1.How and when did you know about this Cabaret performance?

Noah Himmelstein, our director from Los Otros, called and said he was interested in having Judy and I kick off a Cabaret Series at Everyman. So, of course, I said 'Yes.'

2. You and Judy worked so well together. How do you feel about being reunited?

Working with Judy and Noah on Los Otros was a wonderful experience and I jumped at the chance to work with them both again. This is the fourth time that Judy and I will be working together. She's an exceptional talent and always a joy to work with. Everyman is a world class theatre and I'm so excited to be working here again.

FOR Noah Himmelstein:

1. How and when did you get the opportunity to direct BROADWAY FAVORITES?

As Associate Artistic Director at Everyman, I am often looking for programming that compliments the productions happening on the main stage. Vincent M. Lancisi, the Artistic Director, and I were talking about how wonderful it was to do the new musical Los Otros last year and how much we wanted to get music back into our space this summer. Creating a cabaret for two weekends this summer was a way to do this during a time when we are usually not producing. It so happened that the first idea I had-to bring back down two of our favorite artists, Judy McLane and Philip Hernandez-happily worked out.

2. Have you ever directed musicals or cabarets before?

Much of my work is in the development and directing of new musicals. I did a couple cabarets when I was first starting out, and have directed several gala performances-which requires crafting pre-existing material in the form of songs and stories to create a compelling, whole experience. I recently collaborated with writers Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty in this type of work.

3. The shows that are being represented include EVITA, WEST SIDE STORY, LES MIS, WICKED BRIDGES OF MADISON COUNTY, MAN OF LA MANCHA...who selected these? By the way....BRIDGES is one of my favorites.

I wanted this to be a celebration of the music and memories of two artists who have an immense body of work on the Broadway, off Broadway and regional stage in many joyous and well-known pieces, in addition to material I believe our audiences would love to hear them do and that they would get a kick out of learning. It's been a very happy rehearsal period of much laughter and exquisite singing and storytelling.

4. Have you ever worked with Judy or Philip?

Last year, I directed Los Otros; a beautiful new musical by Ellen Fitzhugh and Michael John LaChiusa at Everyman that featured Judy and Philip. It's a stunning piece about the identity, social and racial politics of two Californians covering 40+ years of their lives. Judy and Philip gave remarkable performances as Lillian and Carlos, from ages 12 into middle age. The audience adored their epic talents and warm, engaging personalities. I'm thrilled to be working with them again in a much more informal environment where they'll be performing in our spacious rehearsal room.

5. How much time will you have to rehearse with them and how does one direct something like this?

It's about selecting specific material and arrangements with the actors and creating a narrative that feels part of, comments on, enriches the space and time we are performing it in. It's about balancing humor, pathos, and fun, in the hopes of crafting an evening that can deliver a theatrical experience with the life stories of two wonderful artists. With our second collaboration, we've developed a shorthand in working together. Judy and Philip also have performed in several shows together before Los Otros, including the original Broadway production of Kiss of the Spider Woman, so there is a long relationship to build upon.

6. What are you next working on?

I have several projects in development coming up at regional theatres and in New York. Most notably at Everyman, I'm directing a really terrific play by Chelsea Marcantel-Everything is Wonderful-about an Amish family who is irrevocably transformed by a freak accident in their community. I think those who were fans of The Book of Joseph will especially be thrilled by this piece, which also involves a deeply emotional time convention and mysticism to allow a family to really see each other. It begins performances late January 2019.

FOR DAN GREEN:

1.How did you get involved with this Cabaret?

I first met Noah Himmelstein, the director, from work we had done together with the composer Andrew Lippa on his oratorio I Am Harvey Milk-this fantastic choral piece celebrating the life of the gay rights activist. I'm also a composer and Andrew has been a longtime mentor to me, so it was nice to meet Noah in that capacity. I've split my career between composing and music directing. I have a passion for both, and I've been fortunate to meet some performers, directors, etc. on projects that I was music directing that I was then able to work with on my writing, and vice versa. I have a couple musicals that are hopefully getting premiere productions in the next couple years, in New York and around the country, so stay tuned!

2. What is it like be on the piano in the pit for the hit musical WICKED?

I've been lucky to sub for several Broadway shows since moving to New York. Wicked was one of my first and, thankfully, it has enjoyed a healthy run! I'm not there every night, so it takes a while to get used to jumping back into the show, but I've played it long enough now that I can relax and enjoy it-and the crowd cheering at the top never gets old.

3. How did you enjoy being associate conductor of ROCKY and how would you define Associate Conductor.

Rocky was a fantastic experience. I started assisting the songwriters, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, before the very first reading, and stayed with the show through its development until Broadway. Associate conducting meant that I was usually playing piano, but a couple times a week would get to conduct the show. The end of the show was the epic boxing match between Rocky and Apollo and the ring actually slid out into the house, over the conductor podium! We had a little button to press to bring the podium down to the floor so we didn't get decapitated. I wish we'd been able to keep the show open longer, but all of us had a blast and I was so lucky to work on it.

4. Have you worked before with Judy and/or Philip?

This is my first time working with Judy and Philip, but they had me in stitches within minutes of our first meeting, so I know Baltimore audiences are in for a treat!

5. Will there be any other instruments besides you on the piano?

Judy and Philip are pros who have worked together before, so they know what they want out of an evening like this-my job is to give them a nice musical support system. I'll write a few arrangements of existing tunes and accompany them from the piano. It will be great to celebrate some classic Broadway songs as well as some more contemporary numbers-there should be something for everyone.

It's about balancing humor, pathos, and fun, in the hopes of crafting an evening that can deliver a theatrical experience with the life stories of two wonderful artists. With our second collaboration, we've developed a shorthand in working together. Judy and Philip also have performed in several shows together before Los Otros, including the original Broadway production of Kiss of the Spider Woman, so there is a long relationship to build upon.

6. What are you next working on?

I have several projects in development coming up at regional theatres and in New York. Most notably at Everyman, I'm directing a really terrific play by Chelsea Marcantel-Everything is Wonderful-about an Amish family who is irrevocably transformed by a freak accident in their community. I think those who were fans of The Book of Joseph will especially be thrilled by this piece, which also involves a deeply emotional time convention and mysticism to allow a family to really see each other. It begins performances late January 2019.

FOR DAN GREEN:

1.How did you get involved with this Cabaret?

I first met Noah Himmelstein, the director, from work we had done together with the composer Andrew Lippa on his oratorio I Am Harvey Milk-this fantastic choral piece celebrating the life of the gay rights activist. I'm also a composer and Andrew has been a longtime mentor to me, so it was nice to meet Noah in that capacity. I've split my career between composing and music directing. I have a passion for both, and I've been fortunate to meet some performers, directors, etc. on projects that I was music directing that I was then able to work with on my writing, and vice versa. I have a couple musicals that are hopefully getting premiere productions in the next couple years, in New York and around the country, so stay tuned!

2. What is it like be on the piano in the pit for the hit musical WICKED?

I've been lucky to sub for several Broadway shows since moving to New York. Wicked was one of my first and, thankfully, it has enjoyed a healthy run! I'm not there every night, so it takes a while to get used to jumping back into the show, but I've played it long enough now that I can relax and enjoy it-and the crowd cheering at the top never gets old.

3. How did you enjoy being associate conductor of ROCKY and how would you define Associate Conductor.

Rocky was a fantastic experience. I started assisting the songwriters, Lynn Ahrens and Stephen Flaherty, before the very first reading, and stayed with the show through its development until Broadway. Associate conducting meant that I was usually playing piano, but a couple times a week would get to conduct the show. The end of the show was the epic boxing match between Rocky and Apollo and the ring actually slid out into the house, over the conductor podium! We had a little button to press to bring the podium down to the floor so we didn't get decapitated. I wish we'd been able to keep the show open longer, but all of us had a blast and I was so lucky to work on it.

4. Have you worked before with Judy and/or Philip?

This is my first time working with Judy and Philip, but they had me in stitches within minutes of our first meeting, so I know Baltimore audiences are in for a treat!

5. Will there be any other instruments besides you on the piano?

Judy and Philip are pros who have worked together before, so they know what they want out of an evening like this-my job is to give them a nice musical support system. I'll write a few arrangements of existing tunes and accompany them from the piano. It will be great to celebrate some classic Broadway songs as well as some more contemporary numbers-there should be something for everyone.

Recording a thought’s fleeting trip through the brain

UC Berkeley neuroscientists have tracked the progress of a thought through the brain, showing clearly how the prefrontal cortex at the front of the brain coordinates activity to help us act in response to a perception.

Recording the electrical activity of neurons directly from the surface of the brain, the scientists found that for a simple task, such as repeating a word presented visually or aurally, the visual and auditory cortexes reacted first to perceive the word. The prefrontal cortex then kicked in to interpret the meaning, followed by activation of the motor cortex in preparation for a response. During the half-second between stimulus and response, the prefrontal cortex remained active to coordinate all the other brain areas.

For a particularly hard task, like determining the antonym of a word, the brain required several seconds to respond, during which the prefrontal cortex recruited other areas of the brain, including presumably memory networks not actually visible. Only then did the prefrontal cortex hand off to the motor cortex to generate a spoken response. The quicker the brain’s handoff, the faster people responded.

Interestingly, the researchers found that the brain began to prepare the motor areas to respond very early, during initial stimulus presentation, suggesting that we get ready to respond even before we know what the response will be.

“This might explain why people sometimes say things before they think,” said Avgusta Shestyuk, a senior researcher in UC Berkeley’s Helen Wills Neuroscience Institute and lead author of a paper reporting the results in the current issue of Nature Human Behavior.

The findings, including the key role played by the prefrontal cortex in coordinating all the activated regions of the brain, are in line with what neuroscientists have pieced together over the past decades from studies in monkeys and humans.

“These very selective studies have found that the frontal cortex is the orchestrator, linking things together for a final output,” said co-author Robert Knight, a UC Berkeley professor of psychology and neuroscience and a professor of neurology and neurosurgery at UCSF. “Here we have eight different experiments, some where the patients have to talk and others where they have to push a button, where some are visual and others auditory, and all found a universal signature of activity centered in the prefrontal lobe that links perception and action. It’s the glue of cognition.”

While other neuroscientists have used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and electroencephelography (EEG) to record activity in the thinking brain, the UC Berkeley scientists employed a much more precise technique, electrocorticograhy (ECoG), which records from several hundred electrodes placed on the brain surface and detects activity in the thin outer region, the cortex, where thinking occurs. ECoG provides better time resolution than fMRI and better spatial resolution than EEG, but requires access to epilepsy patients undergoing highly invasive surgery involving opening the skull to pinpoint the location of seizures.

Clues from epilepsy patients

The current study employed 16 epilepsy patients who agreed to participate in experiments while undergoing epilepsy surgery at UC San Francisco and California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, Stanford University in Palo Alto and Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

“This is the first step in looking at how people think and how people come up with different decisions; how people basically behave,” said Shestyuk, who recorded from the first patient 10 years ago. “We are trying to look at that little window of time between when things happen in the environment and us behaving in response to it.”

Once the electrodes were placed on the brains of each patient, Shestyuk and her colleagues conducted a series of eight tasks that included visual and auditory stimuli. The tasks ranged from simple, such as repeating a word or identifying the gender of a face or a voice, to complex, such as determining a facial emotion, uttering the antonym of a word or assessing whether an adjective describes the patient’s personality.

During these tasks, the brain showed four different types of neural activity. Initially, sensory areas of the auditory and visual cortex activate to process audible or visual cues. Subsequently, areas primarily in the sensory and prefrontal cortices activate to extract the meaning of the stimulus. The prefrontal cortex is continuously active throughout these processes, coordinating input from different areas of the brain. Finally, the prefrontal cortex stands down as the motor cortex activates to generate a spoken response or an action, such as pushing a button.

“This persistent activity, primarily seen in the prefrontal cortex, is a multitasking activity,” Shestyuk said. “fMRI studies often find that when a task gets progressively harder, we see more activity in the brain, and the prefrontal cortex in particular. Here, we are able to see that this is not because the neurons are working really, really hard and firing all the time, but rather, more areas of the cortex are getting recruited.”

In sum, Knight said, “Sustained activity in the prefrontal cortex is what guides a perception into an action.”


          Reynoldsburg man gets 5 years for bilking clients out of more than $1.4 million      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

COLUMBUS – A Reynoldsburg man was sentenced in U.S. District Court today to 60 months in prison for charges related to a $1.4 million investment fraud scheme that defrauded at least 44 individuals.

According to court documents, between July 2011 and June 2013, Edward J. Campbell operated an investment business known as Rosewood Consulting LLC in Baltimore, Ohio.

Campbell told victims their money would be invested through Rosewood Consulting into two types of investment programs: historical bonds issued by China and the exchange of Bougainville Kina – illegal currency from the autonomous region of Bougainville, Papua New Guinea – into U.S. dollars.

He told the investors he had access to a trading platform in which he could monetize gold-backed bonds issued by China in 1913 for a very high return.

Campbell offered to sell the bonds to investors for $10,000 to $15,000 each for a promised return on investment of anywhere from $50,000 to upwards of possibly $10 million per bond within 10 to 60 days.

Campbell also offered to exchange the Bougainville Kina, which he allegedly possessed, into U.S. dollars if the investors hired him for a $100,000 fee. The investors were supposed to receive a return of $1.5 million or more within 10 to 120 days.

Campbell told investors their investments were refundable if the returns were not paid within the provided timeframes. In addition, he told investors that he had prior success with these investment programs, was a former Navy SEAL, once worked in an investment house, had traveled internationally closing deals and he had nearly 600 investors.

The investigation revealed that none of the investors received the returns on their investments that Campbell promised.

Only a few of the 44 investors have been refunded the money they paid for his services and those refunds were paid for with other investors’ funds.

Campbell usually depleted the funds he received from investors shortly after receiving them, by using the funds for personal expenses, including the purchase of two automobiles and expenses at hotels and restaurants.

To appease investors regarding delays in paying them the returns on their investments, Campbell said their money was being held up by various United States agencies and or catastrophes to his family or other individuals who were important for these deals to be completed.

In one example, Campbell told investors his niece was a student and had been shot at Sandy Hook Elementary School, but later changed his story when the names of the school-shooting victims were released to the public. He also fabricated his attorney’s daughter had been in a motorcycle accident.

Campbell pleaded guilty on Sept. 21, 2017 to charges of money laundering and wire fraud. As part of his plea agreement, Campbell agreed to pay $1,408,854 in restitution.


          Worker Cooperatives Are Finding Investors Who Share Their Values      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

You may know Equal Exchange by the food company’s signature bright red logo on its coffee, tea, or chocolate bars. You may know they sell only certified fair-trade products, ensuring just compensation paid to farmers and their workers in countries all over the world. You may even know the company currently earns around $70 million a year in revenues, and has around 150 employees. But did you also know the company is a worker cooperative?

In the 1980s, Equal Exchange’s three co-founders were working in the food industry, but not enthusiastic about the conventional business models they found across the sector, which were based primarily on a “race to the bottom,” cutting costs wherever possible to increase shareholder profits. That usually meant companies paid the bare minimum to workers along the global supply chain — farmers, truck and forklift drivers, packaging machine operators, coffee roaster operators, warehouse staff and others. Equal Exchange’s co-founders came together to form the company in the late 1980s, setting out to prove a point: that you could be a successful, even a profitable company and not treat your workers, suppliers, and other stakeholders like cogs in the money-making machine. You could pay everyone fairly, even give workers ownership and control of the company, and have cash left over to repay investors.

Being a worker cooperative means every worker has an equal say and an equal ownership share in the company. It doesn’t mean every worker has to vote on every day-to-day decision within the business. But on major decisions, this structure helps to guard against making drastic changes such as sacrificing wages and benefits for the sake of profits or shutting down their existing roasting facility and moving it hundreds or thousands of miles away.

For those and other reasons, a growing number of cities from New York City to Cleveland to Rochester to Madison have been exploring worker cooperatives; the goal is to create jobs with better pay and benefits and to support companies that won’t threaten to shift those jobs to other countries or even other parts of the United States.

But access to capital remains a major barrier for most worker cooperatives to achieve their potential to grow and scale to the point where they can influence others in their cities and sectors to change practices and possibly incorporate as or convert to worker cooperative ownership structures. Equal Exchange is one of the few worker cooperatives that has raised a significant amount of capital from investors. They have moved beyond setting an example for how to court investors as a worker cooperative; they’ve directly supported other worker cooperatives to learn how to raise capital and have even connected others to their established network of around 600 investors.

At Equal Exchange’s headquarters, just outside the city of Brockton, Massachusetts — home to office supplier W.B. Mason, and boxers Rocky Marciano and “Marvelous” Marvin Hagler — you’ll find forklift drivers, packing machines and operators, coffee roasters, coffee tasters, and office staff. You may also find Daniel Fireside, who, as capital coordinator, manages the company’s investor relationships.

“I have to explain what my job is a lot, even inside the company,” says Fireside. “When I was hired, I was told different people who’ve had the job [before me] have had different titles, like director of investor relations. I decided to keep capital coordinator, because I think it’s more reflective of what the job is, and [the title is] unusual enough that it often starts a conversation.”

Since the company’s founding, Equal Exchange has raised more than $16 million in capital from outside investors, about half of that since hiring Fireside in 2010. Coming from the cooperative world, he had to learn the investment world. In some ways, managing and cultivating investor relationships for a worker cooperative is the same as doing so for a conventional business — for example, frequent travel to places where current or likely investors are likely to gather; it’s why Fireside spends so much of his working life out of the office.

While the company isn’t publicly traded on the stock market, it does utilize a legal framework under U.S. securities laws (known as the 506 exemption of Regulation D of the Securities and Exchange Act) to sell ownership shares to investors during occasional periods known as private offerings. Unlike standard ownership shares, however, these shares don’t come with any rights to vote or otherwise exert control over the business.

When Equal Exchange decides to have an offering, it’s Fireside’s role to make sure investors are in place, ready to sign checks as soon as possible. You can’t just call someone who expressed interest five years ago and hope they’re in position to make an investment.

“A lot of it is networking,” says Fireside. “I’m selling our stock even when we don’t have an offering. My job is to make sure the capital is available. Whatever plans management has, I don’t want access to affordable capital to be an obstacle.”

The last time Equal Exchange made an offering to investors was a one-year period from 2014 into 2015, and the company raised $4.1 million. It was Equal Exchange’s largest offering ever, and to date remains the largest private offering by any worker cooperative in the United States.

Fireside doesn’t do this all by himself. It’s not only logistically infeasible — investors hail from 36 states plus the District of Columbia — but the legal costs associated with a company marketing directly to most investors would be exorbitant. Instead, Fireside works with partners to raise the capital, partners such Andy Loving, a Louisville, Kentucky-based financial advisor with Natural Investments LLC. When Fireside has an offering for investors, he calls up Loving and a few other financial advisors at Natural Investments and other firms, and gives them each a target dollar amount to raise. Natural Investments doesn’t charge Equal Exchange a penny for the service it provides.

“I’ve been doing this for 25 years now,” says Loving. “I’m an old social activist mostly among more progressive church folk. I tell people when I was a little bit younger I tried to create social change by organizing people, and I decided I’d give a try to organize money.”

Loving’s clients are the people with money to invest. They come from a variety of backgrounds, he says, including folks who have worked in government for many years. Some have inherited money, some are fellow social activists, environmentalists, lawyers, even social workers. His clients aren’t the super-wealthy; most hover between $1 million and $2 million in net worth, and they come from 25 states and counting.

A net-worth of $1 million is an important threshold under the Securities and Exchange Act. Unlike with the stock market, in a private offering, the law says companies can only sell shares to up to 35 investors who have a net-worth less than $1 million. But companies can sell shares to an unlimited number of investors with a net-worth of at least $1 million. It’s a measure meant to protect less wealthy investors from being scammed, although some — including Fireside — believe it’s worth exploring meaningful ways to expand that unlimited pool to include less wealthy investors.

What ties all of them together, what brings clients to Loving and financial advisory firms such as Natural Investments in the first place, is the desire to invest in ways that link some type of social returns — creating living wage jobs, advancing clean energy and investing in historically under-invested communities — to financial returns.

Twenty-five years ago, when Loving first got into financial advising, he worked with a few investors who only cared about maximizing financial return. (“Because I wanted to do things like eat,” he says.) Nowadays, he has more than enough clients to keep him busy (and fed) by investing only in opportunities such as Equal Exchange.

Instead of charging companies like Equal Exchange for raising capital, Loving’s clients pay Natural Investments an annual fee equal to one percent of the assets that fall under the firm’s management. The firm currently has around $500 million in assets under management. Of that, around $90 million comes from Loving’s clients. Loving says around 70 of those clients have invested in Equal Exchange. Other Natural Investments advisors also have clients invested in Equal Exchange.

“As a financial advisor, my fiduciary responsibility is first to my clients,” Loving explains. That means meeting his clients’ financial expectations, which includes not losing any money; but as with most investors, Loving’s clients want to at least beat inflation and grow the value of their assets over time, for the sake of retirement or passing along wealth to the next generation. Beyond that, Loving’s clients aren’t as interested in how fast their assets grow as they are in the social returns of those investments, a philosophy that makes sense from Equal Exchange’s perspective.

“One of the things Equal Exchange always wanted, and why they wanted to work with us, was they wanted values-aligned investors,” says Loving. “They were looking for folks who understood fair trade, who understood worker ownership.

To be as sure as he can about values-alignment with investors, Fireside has a conversation with each potential investor before taking their money. Besides alignment with fair-trade and worker cooperative ideals and philosophies, Fireside checks the investor’s long-term perspective. Equal Exchange’s outside investors must hold on to their shares for a minimum of five years, and can only sell shares back to the company.

“I tell people I can’t guarantee you’ll make a financial return, I can’t guarantee you won’t lose it, but I can guarantee you’ll feel good either way, because we’re doing the right thing,” says Fireside. “That message, after the financial crisis, suddenly meant a lot more to a growing number of people.”

Fireside may sound modest, but the reality is that Equal Exchange has paid an annual dividend to investors for 28 straight years and counting, even during the Great Recession. And during Loving’s tenure selling Equal Exchange shares to outside investors, he’s seen only a tiny handful cash out.

“I’ve spoken to some of our long-time investors who’ve said they thought Equal Exchange was their crazy pseudo-charity, but [then] the financial crisis hit and their 401k’s fell by half in value, while [Equal Exchange] kept paying positive returns, because the business was moving along and it was all based on reality,” Fireside says.

It helps that Equal Exchange shares, while not “tradeable” in the stock market sense, never go down in value. The share values don’t go up, either — each investors’ share price stays fixed at whatever their investment was during the offering. In lieu of going up in value, the company promises to pay an annual dividend between 1 and 8 percent of the value of each investor’s investment every year. So far, over the past 28 years, annual dividend payments have been between 3 and 8 percent, and the company sets 5 percent as an annual target dividend payment for each year.

Those returns don’t attract investors in droves. But in his time as capital coordinator, Fireside says he has had to turn away investors from multiple offerings, or in some cases he has capped the amount a single investor could purchase to make room for other, usually smaller investors. More recently, Fireside has referred other worker cooperatives to Loving and other financial advisors in order to raise capital, co-ops such as Boston’s CERO or Denver’s Namasté Solar (where Fireside is a board member). Namasté Solar, which provides residential and commercial solar installations in Colorado, California, and New York, raised $3.1 million in its second private offering, which concluded at the end of 2016.

“We think the way we do business is great, and we think more people should be doing it,” says Fireside. “We don’t want to be the cool outlier.”

One key limitation: while Fireside and Loving have yet to reach the limits of how much capital investors are willing to move to outfits like Equal Exchange or CERO or Namasté Solar, Loving says he doesn’t feel these investors are the best for startups. It’s too risky for investors who, although they have some flexibility with their wealth, aren’t in a position to invest at the earliest stage of a business, worker cooperative or not. Even in conventional investing, Loving points out, the vast majority of startups fail.

“We really feel like our folks can’t lose all their money in a deal,” Loving says. “Cities and governmental bodies are some of the people that need to help get [more worker cooperatives] off the ground and [give them] technical assistance to get them to work [so they can] establish a track record.”

Bus lanes and transit lanes are all great buffer zones and can be made such that they provide BETTER access for emergency responders. Call it a Transit/Emergency lane and fire trucks can get past gridlocked traffic. The same can be said about a wide bike lane, Protected bike lanes can have access points or mountable curbs for fire trucks, but again as video and image after image show, PARKING lanes and double parked cars and trucks tend to have the greatest detriments to response times. People are fighting the realization that parking on the streets is not free. There is a cost, and it comes in the form of increased congestion and travel time because street space is dominated by parked cars instead of moving PEOPLE. (And as always we need to realize well planned bike and transit routes and lanes can move PEOPLE more efficiently than single occupancy vehicles. (And no, we do not need to have buses in gridlock to still have it be a more efficient use of street space)

As recent graduates enter the workforce, many employers are not as confident in the skills these new entrants bring with them. 

Only 35 percent of employers report feeling confident that new recruits are well prepared with hard technical skills and “soft skills” such as complex problem-solving and analytical reasoning, according to a recent Bloomberg Next report.

“Business and academia are not collaborating as actively and effectively as they could be in preparing students for employment and reskilling individuals already in the workforce,” the report’s authors write. 

As demand-driven learning — a new focus on developing workplace skills in undergraduate studies — starts to pick up steam, corporations are beginning to see the benefit in investing in higher education institutions to guarantee the future workforce will have more of the skills these companies seek.

Partnerships Offer Learning Pathways in Community College

One of the ways corporations are helping universities better equip students for the working world is by offering new areas of study. Google recently announced a partnership with 25 community colleges in order to offer students its IT Support Professional Certificate.

By partnering with Coursera, the tech giant is able to give students access to classes on everything from applied digital skills to IT security. Once graduates finish the course, they can share their certificate directly with one of the many corporate partners involved in the project, such as GE Digital. 

Similarly, at Northern Virginia Community College, administrators have partnered with Amazon to give students a chance to learn about cloud computing as part of the information systems technology track.

“The Northern Virginia region is home to one of the largest concentrations of IT jobs in the nation, as well as one of the greatest demands for employees with cloud computing skills,” says Scott Ralls, the college’s president, in a press release. “This new cloud computing program is our latest initiative to meet the highly skilled employment needs of technology employers and to offer pathways to family-supporting careers for our students.”

Collaborations Offer Innovative Technology Education

While some companies look to offer certificate programs as a way to enable students to supplement their knowledge, other companies are collaborating to change the way institutions teach entirely.

A new collaboration between some of the top digital companies and universities, called Collaborative Leaders in Academia and Business (CoLAB), plans to drive efforts to increase the number of graduates with refined digital skills, develop cutting-edge technology and improve innovation in the capital region, from Baltimore to Richmond, Va.

The collaboration will take a two-pronged approach. First, it will use credentialing to teach students skills relevant to what partner corporations believe will be useful in the working world. Second, it will showcase the latest technological innovations, research and thought-leadership coming from these companies.

“Working together, we can prepare a new generation of workers and business leaders, as well as the technology that will create new industries,” University of Maryland President Wallace Loh tells UMD Right Now. “The power of this initiative can be seen in our many successful partnerships.”

Collaborators comprise many of the universities and large corporations in the region, including Georgetown University, American University, Johns Hopkins University, Capital One, Exelon, EY, and JPMorgan Chase.

Eli is a budding journalist with experience reporting across various fields. He is enthusiastic about the world of tech and the possibilities of future innovation.


          Nicas en MLB - El Nuevo Diario      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Cuando la presente campaña de Grandes Ligas se puso en marcha había mucha expectación porque se vislumbraba como la temporada en la que Juan Carlos Ramírez se establecería como abridor de los Angelinos, en la que Erasmo Ramírez se graduaría como protagonista en la rotación de los Marineros y en la que Cheslor Cuthbert podría alcanzar un peldaño más con los Reales. Sin embargo, en el transcurso de los primeros meses de juego aparecieron las lesiones y de uno en uno los nicas fueron pasando a la lista de lesionados. 

Más tarde apareció Jonathan Loáisiga con los Yanquis, reavivando el entusiasmo entre la afición nacional, pero recientemente también fue enviado a la lista de inhabilitados. De tal forma que las lesiones han impedido la posibilidad de ver en acción al mismo tiempo a cinco jugadores de origen nicaragüense, el único que permanece activo es Alex Blandino.  Aquí un repaso por lo que ha sido la temporada de Juan Carlos, Erasmo, Cheslor, Jonathan y Blandino. 

J.C. y la Tommy John

Tras registrar dos derrotas en dos aperturas en la primera semana de abril y de retirarse del montículo sintiendo rigidez en el antebrazo derecho en su última salida el 7 de abril ante los Atléticos de Oakland, los Angelinos decidieron enviar a Juan Carlos a la lista de lesionados por diez días y luego los médicos del equipo resolvieron recomendarle que se sometiera a la cirugía Tommy John.

Ramírez aceptó y pocos días después fue operado. Actualmente se encuentra recuperándose de la operación y con la mirada puesta en la campaña del 2019, cuando se dé su regreso. El capitalino terminó temprano la temporada y dejó números que evidenciaban el mal estado de su brazo. Balance de 0-2 y efectividad de 9.45 producto de haber permitido siete carreras limpias en 6.2 innings lanzados.

Erasmo, fuera desde abril

Lo de Erasmo Ramírez no pintó para bien desde el principio. El derecho de Rivas se perdió gran parte del Spring Training y las primeras semanas de la temporada regular. Luego apareció y solo pudo realizar dos aperturas, mismas que perdió recibiendo sendas palizas ante los Vigilantes de Texas y los Indios de Cleveland. Tras verlo deslucir permitiendo 11 carreras limpias en 9.2 episodios y determinar una tensión en el músculo redondo mayor de su brazo de lanzar, los Marineros decidieron ponerlo en la lista de lesionados el primero de mayo, desde entonces no ha vuelto al mejor beisbol del mundo.

Recientemente el nica ha realizado sesiones de bullpen y aunque no hay fecha específica de su regreso, se espera que pronto vuelva, pues ha manifestado sentirse bien después de cada sesión. Erasmo tiene récord de 0-2 y efectividad de 10.24. En dos salidas permitió siete cuadrangulares. 

Cheslor, entre dudas

Cheslor Cuthbert no juega con los Reales de Kansas City desde el 14 de mayo, cuando se fue de 3-0 con dos ponches ante el picheo de los Rays de Tampa Bay. Días después de esta presentación su equipo lo puso en la lista de lesionados como consecuencia de dolencias en la espalda.

Tras un tiempo considerable de recuperación, Ned Yost, el mánager de los Royals anunció el costeño realizaría 20 partidos de rehabilitación en Triple A, sin embargo, al día siguiente el equipo anunció que Cheslor sufrió una recaída de sus molestias en la espalda y esto le impediría seguir jugando en Ligas Menores, donde completó solo seis encuentros. De cuándo será su regreso al equipo grande no hay certeza. El nica presenta un promedio ofensivo de .194 como resultado de 20 imparables en 103 turnos al bate. Entre sus incogibles aparecen dos dobles y tres cuadrangulares.  

Loáisiga, dos semanas fuera

Ante la salida de Juan Carlos, Erasmo y Cheslor, con Alex Blandino tratando de sacarle el máximo provecho a su debut con los Rojos de Cincinnati, llegó la noticia de Jonathan Loáisiga y su ascenso a los Yanquis de Nueva York.

El novel lanzador impresionó y en cuatro aperturas forjó un récord de 2-0 y una efectividad de 3.00, con el agregado de haber dejado claro su potencial. No obstante, su equipo decidió enviarlo a Triple A para que realizara ciertos ajustes que le permitieran mejorar como lanzador.

El lunes pasado Jonathan pudo volver al equipo grande y abrir ante los Orioles de Baltimore, pero una inflamación en el hombro de su brazo derecho se lo impidió. De acuerdo con el último diagnóstico, el nica no presenta ningún daño estructural y por lo tanto solo necesita reposo para recuperarse, es por esto que no tendrá acción durante las dos próximas semanas. 

Blandino en pie de guerra

Alex Blandino debutó el 10 de abril con los Rojos y no tardó en mostrar sus recursos como artillero. Lo hizo bien siendo titular y no desentonó cuando empezó a funcionar como bateador emergente, sin embargo, la falta de actividad no le ha caído bien y apareciendo desde la banca su rendimiento ha bajado.

El único pelotero de origen nica activo en la MLB presenta un promedio ofensivo de 221 como resultado de 27 hits en 122 turnos, suma entre sus cañonazos cuatro dobles y un jonrón y agrega a su accionar ofensivo  ocho carreras impulsadas y 13 anotadas. Eso sí, se poncha 40 veces, más de las que conecta de imparable.

Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Baltimore MD/Washington DC
359 AM EDT Tue Jul 10 2018

.SYNOPSIS...
As high pressure weakens today, a cold front will approach from
the northwest and move into the area tonight. The front will
move to the south on Wednesday, and then high pressure will
build north of the area through the end of the week.

&&

.NEAR TERM /THROUGH TONIGHT/...
High pressure extends into the area from the southwest this
morning. Fog isn`t prevalent on GOES 16 Nighttime Microphysics
image, though a few observations indicate patchy fog will be
possible in the typical outlying valleys/low spots through
sunrise.

A cold front will be approaching from the northwest today. Most
models indicate forcing along the front will remain north of
the area through at least 6 PM. Even though the airmass will
warm further today with temperatures in the low to mid 90s with
dew points well into the 60s, several stable layers will prevent
any surface based instability from being realized. With the
later arrival of the front, models are struggling to maintain
much convection into our CWA this evening. Surface convergence
will be lacking, so mid-level height falls and modest shear will
be the factors for whether storms can survive. Storms are most
likely in the northwestern part of the CWA closer to the best
forcing. Have removed PoPs for the southeastern part of the CWA.

A few showers may linger over the Appalachians into the night,
but otherwise dry weather is expected the second half of the
night as the surface trough continues to drift southward. If
skies are clear enough and winds decouple (most likely in
valleys due to a bit of a gradient behind the front), some
patchy fog could develop as dew points will be slow to fall.
Lows will be in the 60s to lower 70s.

&&

.SHORT TERM /WEDNESDAY THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT/...
Even though the surface trough will be moving south of the area
on Wednesday, advection of lower theta-e values will be slow,
and the frontal zone aloft will still be positioned across
central Virginia. In addition, a shortwave trough will be
rotating across the area during the afternoon. While there are
some placement differences in the models, have allowed for a
chance of showers and thunderstorms near the I-64 corridor
through Wednesday afternoon, with lower chances toward southern
Maryland. Temperatures will drop a little, back into the mid to
upper 80s.

Additional shortwave energy may drop into the area Wednesday
night, but by this time, high pressure to the north will be
advecting drier air into the region. Will keep a dry forecast
with lows in the 60s.

Some uncertainty exists with the Thursday forecast as upper
level troughing remains over the northeastern US with high
pressure over the Great Lakes. An additional shortwave will be
rotating through the trough, and low level easterly flow may
bring a bit of an increase in moisture off the Atlantic. A few
showers can`t totally be ruled out east of I-95, but have kept
the forecast dry for now until some consistency is reached.
Temperatures will be near normal.

&&

.LONG TERM /FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY/...
A upper level ridge will be in place on Friday over our region. A
high pressure system will be position over the mid-Atlantic and
Northeastern US. Winds will remain light out of the south with
periods of variability. Skies will remain mostly clear to
partly cloudy. High temperatures will hover near average for
this time of the year in the mid 80s. Moisture advection will
increase later in the day on Friday leading to PWAT`s slowly
rising.

Saturday into Sunday, a shortwave trough moves into our region from
the midwest. The high pressure that has been in place will slowly
shift eastward off the Northeastern US sea oard. The models
are handling the timing of the shortwave trough differently. The
GFS brings in the shortwave quicker during Saturday
afternoon/evening while the Euro tends to bring the shortwave
through slower later Saturday evening into Sunday. The 00z GFS
has considerable more precipitation in our region on Saturday
while Euro is considerably drier until Sunday afternoon into
Monday. The big take away is that showers and thunderstorms will
be possible this weekend. Daytime temperatures will be warmer
in the upper 80s to lower 90s this weekend. Cloud cover will
increase through the weekend as PWAT`s reach up into the 1.5 to
2 inch ranger.

On Monday, a high pressure system will be off the coast leading to a
southerly flow. Shortwave energy is expected to be influencing parts
of our region. PWAT`s are expected to be closer to the a 2 inch
level which suggest plenty of moisture in place. The high PWAT`s
combined with temperatures hovering in the upper 80s along with the
exiting shortwave suggests that the chance for showers and
thunderstorms will continue into Monday.

&&

.AVIATION /07Z TUESDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/...
A light and variable wind at times this morning has kept
temperatures from falling to the dew points, so prospects for
any fog are low.

Retreating high pressure will maintain VFR conditions and light
winds today. A cold front will move into the area from the
northwest tonight. The late arrival time will lessen chances for
any precipitation. MRB has the highest chance of a brief
scattered shower or storm. Dew points may not drop too quickly
behind this boundary, so some patchy fog may develop late
tonight if skies clear and winds become light.

The front will be slow to exit to the south on Wednesday, so a
shower or storm could develop near CHO from midday into the
afternoon. Drier air from high pressure to the north will
likely result in VFR conditions at the terminals from Wednesday
night through Thursday night.

On Friday, high pressure will continue to be in place over our
region. Skies should remain mostly clear to partly cloudy. Friday is
expected to remain VFR. Saturday, showers and storms will be
possible. The exact timing is still up in the air but it will
likely be sometime later in the day on Saturday or on Sunday. Sky
cover will increase through Sunday. SubVFR conditions will be
possible especially within storms and showers. Winds are expected to
remain light out of the south through Saturday.

&&

.MARINE...
Generally westerly winds 5-10 kt expected today as high pressure
retreats. A cold front will drop into the area tonight, with a
low chance that a shower or storm reaches northern parts of the
Bay. Winds increase a bit out of the north behind the front
late tonight into Wednesday, with marginal SCA possible. Do not
have enough model support to issue a headline at this time, but
will monitor data as this time period becomes available in higher
resolution models. Winds will diminish Wednesday night through

          Burn Bag (Rebroadcast) - 19 March 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

This week on "A Way with Words": Slang from the 19th century. The slang coming out of Victorian mouths was more colorful than you might think. A 1909 collection of contemporary slang records clever terms for everything from a bald head to the act of sidling through a crowd. Plus, how to remember the difference between CAV-al-ry and CAL-va-ry. And: what's the best way to improve how introverts are perceived in our society? For starters, don't bother asking for help from dictionary editors. Also, collieshangles, knowledge box, nanty narking, biz bag, burn bag, yuppies, and amberbivalence.

FULL DETAILS

Mind the grease is a handy phrase to use when you're trying to sidle through a crowd. It's found in 1909 volume of English slang called Passing English of the Victorian Era. Speaking of greasy, in those days something extravagant might be described as butter upon bacon.

If you're telling a story involving someone with an accent, and while relaying what so-and-so said, you imitate that person's accent, is that cool? If your retelling starts to sound offensive or gets in the way of good communication, best to try paraphrasing rather than performing.

Collieshangles is an old Scottish term for a quarrel, possibly deriving from the notion of two collie dogs fighting.

We've previously discussed the term going commando, meaning "dressed without underwear." It first appears in print in 1974, but likely goes back further than that. The scene in a 1996 episode of Friends, wherein Joey goes commando in Chandler's clothes, likely popularized the saying.

A Chicago-area listener suggests that approaching to a yellow traffic light and deciding whether or not to go for it might be described as amberbivalence. It's somewhat like that decision you face when coming toward what you know is a stale green light—do you gun it or brake it?

Quiz Guy John Chaneski wasn't savvy enough way back when to snag an email address like john@aol.com, but he was clever enough to come up with a game about apt email addresses that serve as a pun on the word at. For example, a prescient lawyer might have claimed attorney@law.com.

What's the difference between cavalry and calvary? The first of these two refers to the group of soldiers on horseback, and is a linguistic relative of such "horsey" words as caballero, the Spanish horse-riding gentleman, and cavalcade, originally a "parade of horses." The word calvary, on the other hand, derives from the Latin calvaria, "skull," and refers to the hill where Jesus was crucified, known in Aramaic as Golgotha, or "place of the skull."

Knowledge box is an old slang term for noggin; one 1755 describes someone who "almost cracked his knowledge box."

An introvert in Baltimore, Maryland, is unhappy with an online definition of introvert, and is speaking up about wanting it changed. The definition describes an introvert as someone preoccupied with their own thoughts and feelings—such as a selfish person, or a narcissist. The problem is, Google's definitions come from another dictionary, and dictionary definitions themselves come from perceived popular usage. So the way to change a definition isn't to petition lexicographers, but to change the popular understanding of a term.

What's the female equivalent of a man cave? Some people are promoting the term she shed.

Ann Patchett, the author of This Is the Story of a Happy Marriage, among other books, has some great advice about writing. She says the key is to practice writing several hours a day for the sheer joy of getting better, and find the thing that you alone can say.

The term biz bag, meaning a bag to stuff your discarded items in, comes from an old commercial for Biz stain-removing detergent.

If you're looking for a little nanty narking, try going back to the 19th century and having a great time, because that's a jaunty term the British used for it back then.

Betamax players and hair metal bands may be trapped in the 1980's, but the term yuppie, meaning "young urban professional," is alive and well. Dink, meaning dual income, no kids, is also worth throwing around in a marketing presentation.

In the world of covert secret agents, a burn bag is the go-to receptacle for important papers you'd like to have burned rather than intercepted by the enemy.

A listener from Santa Monica, California, says he's going to mow something down, as in, he's going to eat a huge amount of food really fast. But when he writes it, he spells mow as mau, and pronounces it to rhyme with cow. Ever heard of this?

A fly-rink, in 19th-century slang, is a bald head—perfect for flies to skate around on!

          Machado dispara par de cuadrangulares y lleva a Baltimore a derrotar a los Yanquis      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, EE.UU. Manny Machado pegó dos jonrones, Jonathan Schoop produjo con sencillo la carrera del triunfo con dos outs en la novena entrada y los Orioles de Baltimore remontaron para vencer el martes 6-5 a los Yanquis de Nueva York.

Greg Bird conectó cuadrangular y produjo cuatro carreras por los Yanquis, que poseen una inexplicable marca de 4-5 ante los Orioles, último lugar de la división.

Machado borró desventajas de 3-2 y 5-3 antes de que Schoop definiera el juego en la novena con su batazo ante Dellin Betances (1-3).

Un bateador golpeado, un doblete de Adam Jones y un boleto intencional a Machado llenaron las almohadillas con un out. Después de que Mark Trumbo se ponchara, Schoop pegó un rodado que rozó el guante de Bird en la inicial en camino a jardín derecho.

Zach Britton (1-0) trabajó el noveno inning para quedarse con el triunfo.

Bird pegó un jonrón de tres carreras y luego conectó un elevado de sacrificio para que los Yanquis tomaran ventaja de dos anotaciones en el séptimo inning. Pero la ventaja no prevaleció.

Por los Orioles, el dominicano Manny Machado de 4-3 con tres producidas y dos anotadas.

Por los Yanquis, el dominicano Miguel Andújar de 3-1 con dos anotadas.

          Pinstriped Performances: Tuesday, July 10, 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

There were not many games played in the New York Yankees organization on Tuesday. Scranton Wilkes-Barre, Trenton, Charleston, and Staten Island all had the night off. Plus, the Dominican Summer League team had their game rained out. That being said, the two Gulf Coast League teams played a doubleheader against each other, so the combined record ended up being 4-3.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Kansas City Royals finally bunched together some runs to end a lengthy losing streak.

Adalberto Mondesi had a three-run homer and a career-high four RBIs, and Kansas City snapped a 10-game skid with a 9-4 win over Minnesota on Tuesday night.

The Royals scored more than five runs for the first time since June 4 and improved to 26-65 overall, percentage points ahead of Baltimore to avoid owning baseball's worst record.

Это цитата сообщения Майя_Пешкова Оригинальное сообщениеХудожники Возрождения:Сандро Ботичелли(2)Весна

 

"Весна" Боттичелли, "Весна" Боттичелли,
летящие линии в солнечном теле,
струящийся, плавный, томительный танец,
шары золотые, хитонов багрянец.

О чудо чудес, "боттичелиев контур",
мазок, убегающий вдаль к горизонту.
В изломах материй и складках капризных –
сознание хрупкости, зыбкости жизни.

(Кравченко Н.)


 

Сандро Боттичелли, ( настоящее имя - Алессандро ди Мариано Филипепи  1445 г. — 17 мая 1510 г.) — итальянский живописец тосканской школы.. Представитель Раннего Возрождения. Был близок ко двору Медичи и гуманистическим кругам Флоренции. 


Алессандро ди Мариано Филипепи родился в 1445 году во Флоренции, в семье кожевника Мариано ди Ванни Филипепи и его жены Смеральды. После смерти отца главой семьи стал старший брат, зажиточный биржевой делец, прозванный Боттичелли («Бочонок»), то ли из-за округлой фигуры, то ли из-за невоздержанности к вину.

«Мадонна Евхаристии»
Это прозвище распространилось и на других братьев. (Джованни, Антонио и Симоне ) Братья Филипепи получили начальное образование в доминиканском монастыре Санта Мария Новелла, для которого Боттичели, позже, выполнял работы.Сначала, будущего художника, вместе со средним братом Антонио, отдали учиться ювелирному мастерству. Искусство ювелира, профессия уважаемая в середине 15-го столетия, многому научила его. Четкость контурных линий и умелое применение золота, приобретенное им в бытность ювелиром, навсегда останутся в творчестве художника. Антонио стал хоршим ювелиром, а Алессандро окончив курс обучения, увлекся живописью и решил посвятить себя ей.

Святой Августин в молитвенном созерцании

Семья Филипепи пользовалась уважением в городе, что, позже, обеспечилo его внушительными связями. По соседству жила семья Веспуччи. Один из них, Америго Веспуччи (1454-1512), известный торговец и исследователь, именем которого названа Америка. В 1461-62г по совету Джорджа Антонио Веспуччи, он был послан в мастерскую прославленного художника Филиппо Липпи, в Прато, город в 20км от Флоренции.

Святой Августин

В 1467-68г, после смерти Липпи, Боттичелли возвращается во Флоренцию, многому научившись у учителя. Во Флоренции молодой художник, учась у Андрео де Верроккио, где в это же время учится Леонардо да Винчи, становится известным.

Мадонна с Младенцем и ангелами.1470

В изменчивых лицах мадонн Боттичелли
есть то, что мы втайне от жизни хотели,
всё то, что пленяет нездешнею властью –
пронзительно-чёткая формула счастья.

Кравченко Н

К этому периоду относятся первые самостоятельные работы художника, с 1469 года работавшего в доме отца. В 1469 году Сандро был представлен Джорджем Антонио Веспуччи влиятельному политику и государственному деятелю Томмазо Содерини. С этой встречи в судьбе художника происходят крутые перемены.

Возвращение Юдифи

В 1470 году он получает, при поддержке Содерини, первый официальный заказ; Содерини же сводит Боттичелли со своими племянниками Лоренцо и Джулиано Медичи. С этого времени его творчество, а это период расцвета, связано с именём Медичи. В 1472-75гг. он пишет две маленькие работы, изображающие историю Юдифи, видимо предназначавшиеся для дверок шкафа.

«Аллегория силы» (около 1470)

Через три года после "Силы духа" Боттичелли создаёт св. Себастьяна, который был очень торжественно установлен в церкви Санта Марии Маджиори(Маggiori), во Флоренции.

Поклонение волхвов.1475

Появляются прекрасные мадонны, излучающие просветленную кротость Но самую большую известность он получил, когда, примерно в 1475г, исполнил "Поклонение волхвов" для монастыря Санта Марии Новелла, где в окружении Марии изобразил членов семейства Медичи. Флоренция времен правления Медичи была городом рыцарских турниров, маскарадов, праздничных шествий. 28 января 1475 года в городе происходил один из таких турниров.

Царицу грёз - живую Симонетту
В картинах, как в поэмах воспевал
И Медичи влюблённый ликовал
Твоим небесным гением согретый.

Он состоялся на площади Санта-Корче, его главным героем должен был стать младший брат Лоренцо Великолепного, Джулиано.Его «прекрасной дамой» была Симонетта Веспуччи, в которую был безнадежно влюблен Джулиано и, видимо, не он один. Красавица впоследствии была изображена Боттичелли в виде Афины Паллады на штандарте Джулиано.(Об этой истории я писала в предыдущем посте)После этого турнира Боттичелли занял прочное положение среди ближайшего окружения Медичи и свое место в официальной жизни города. Его постоянным заказчиком становится Лоренцо Пьерфранческо Медичи, кузен Великолепного.

«Портрет неизвестного с медалью Козимо Медичи» (1474—1475)

Вскоре после турнира, еще до отъезда художника в Рим тот заказывает ему несколько работ. Еще в ранней молодости Боттичелли приобрел опыт в писании портретов, этого характерного испытания мастерства художника. Став известным во всей Италии, начиная с конца 1470-ых, Боттичелли получал все более выгодные заказы от клиентов вне Флоренции.

«Призвание Моисея»
В 1481 Римский папа Сикст IV пригласил живописцев Сандро Боттичелли, Доменико Гирландайо, Пьетро Перуджино и Козимо Росселли в Рим, чтобы украсить фресками стены папской часовни, названной "Сикстинской капеллой ". Живопись стен была выполнена в течение удивительно короткого периода, только одиннадцать месяцев, с июля 1481г до мая 1482г. Боттичелли создал для капеллы три фрески: «Наказание Корея, Дафна и Авирона», «Искушение Христа» и «Призвание Моисея», а также 11 папских портретов.

«Искушение Христа»— фреска работы Сандро Боттичелли, написанная в период 1480—1482 гг. Расположена в Сикстинской капелле, Ватикан.

На фреске запечатлены три эпизода из Евангелия, напротив расположена фреска «Призвание Моисея» так же работы Боттичелли, своего рода параллель из Ветхого завета. Надпись на фризе, увенчивающем фреску, гласит: TEMPTATIO IESU CHRISTI LATORIS EVANGELICAE LEGIS (Искушение Христа, несущего евангельский закон).

Наказание Корея, Дафана и Абирона
Боттичелли посещал Платоновскую академию Лоренцо Великолепного, где встречался с Фичино, Пико и Полициано, тем самым подпав под влияние неоплатонизма, что нашло отражение в его картинах светской тематики.

Средневековый. Галльский и тосканский.
С ракушками на голубом песке.
И Богоматерь сказывала сказки
в Своей не отшлифованной тоске.

И мы по сказкам жили, как по звёздам,
вели нас Лев, Телец, Единорог,
и Ариадна складывала гроздья
созвездий в свой папирусный кулёк.

Весна.1478

Самое известное и самое загадочное произведение Боттичелли — «Весна» (Primavera) (1482). Картина вместе с «Палладой и кентавром» (1482—1483) Боттичелли и «Мадонной с Младенцем» неизвестного автора предназначалась для украшения флорентийского дворца Лоренцо ди Пьерфранческо, представителя семейства Медичи. Художник заканчивает картину "Весна", начатую до отъезда. За это время во Флоренции произошли важные события, которые повлияли на настроение, присущее этому произведению. Первоначально, тема для написания "Весны" была почерпнута из поэмы Полициано "Турнир" в которой прославлялся Джулиано Медичи и его возлюбленная Симонетта Веспуччи. 

Вот и Весна, и Венера идёт, и Венеры крылатый

Вестник грядёт впереди, и, Зефиру вослед, перед ними

Шествует Флора-мать и, цветы на путь рассыпая,

Красками всё наполняет и запахом сладким…

Ветры, богиня, бегут пред тобою; с твоим приближеньем

Тучи уходят с небес, земля-искусница пышный

Стелет цветочный ковёр, улыбаются волны морские,

И небосвода лазурь сияет разлившимся светом.

Однако за время, прошедшее от начала работы до ее завершения, прекрасная Симонетта скоропостижно умерла, а сам Джулиано, с которым художника связывала дружба, был злодейски убит. Это отразилось на настроении картины, внеся в нее ноту грусти и понимания быстротечности бытия.В 1483 году флорентийский купец Антонио Пуччи заказал Боттичелли четыре картины вытянутого формата со сценами любовной истории из «Декамерона» Боккаччо о Настаджо дельи Онести.

                                                             Теме любви посвящена картина «Венера и Марс» (около 1485).

«Рождение Венеры»

Также около 1485 года Боттичелли создаёт прославленное полотно «Рождение Венеры». «…Что отличает творчество Сандро Боттичелли от манеры его современников — мастеров кватроченто, да, впрочем, и живописцев всех времён и народов? Это особая певучесть линии в каждой из его картин, необычайное чувство ритма, выраженное в тончайших нюансах и в прекрасной гармонии его „Весны“ и „Рождения Венеры“. Колорит Боттичелли музыкален, в нём всегда ясен лейтмотив произведения.

О, Боттичелли, что за веру
Принёс ты на холсте "Венеры..."?
В какую смотрит она даль?
Зачем Красе придал печаль?
"Останься пеной, Афродита...",
Но ты нарушил сей запрет,
Венере предложив сей брег
Греха, порока, злого крика...
Печать на истину печали
Ты, Боттичелли, совершил.
Зефир волнуется отчаянно,
А миг вот-здесь-рожденья жив!

Багинский

Венера (Рождение Венеры)1486

Мало у кого в мировой живописи так звучит пластика линии, движения и взволнованного, глубоко лирического, далекого от мифологического или иных схем сюжета. Художник сам режиссёр и композитор своих творений. Он не пользуется ходульными канонами, потому его картины так волнуют современного зрителя своей поэзией и первичностью мировидения»

"Рождение Венеры" написано несколькими годами позже "Весны". Неизвестно, кто из семейства Медичи был ее заказчиком.

Афина Паллада и Кентавр.1420.

Примерно в это же время Боттичелли пишет эпизоды из " Истории Настаджио дельи Онести " (Боккачио "Декамерон"), "Паллада и Кентавр" и "Венера и Марс".

Пир Настаджио дельи Онести.1487

В последние годы своего правления Лоренцо Великолепный, 1490г призвал во Флоренцию известного проповедника Фра Джироламо Савонаролу. Видимо, этим Великолепный хотел укрепить в городе свой авторитет. Но проповедник, воинствующий поборник соблюдения церковных догм, вошел в резкий конфликт со светской властью Флоренции. Он сумел приобрести в городе много сторонников. Под его влияние попало немало талантливых, религиозных людей искусства, не устоял и Боттичелли. Радость, поклонение Красоте навсегда ушли из его творчества. 

Sandro Botticelli - Adorazione dei Mag

Если предыдущие мадонны представали в торжественном величии Царицы Небесной, то теперь это бледная, с глазами полными слез, женщина, много изведавшая и пережившая.Художник стал больше тяготеть к религиозным сюжетам, даже среди официальных заказов его в первую очередь привлекали картины на библейские темы. Этот период творчества отмечен картиной "Коронование Девы Марии", заказанной для капеллы цеха ювелиров.

Портрет Данте.1478

В 1480—1490 годах Боттичелли выполняет серию иллюстраций пером к «Божественной комедии» Данте. «Рисовал Сандро исключительно хорошо и так много, что ещё долго после его смерти каждый художник старался заполучить его рисунки»

Клевета

Последней его большой работой, на светскую тему была "Клевета", но в ней, при все талантливости исполнения, отсутствует роскошно украшенный, декоративный стиль, присущий Боттичелли.

Религиозные картины 1480-х годов

Боттичелли, «Madonna del Magnificat», 1480—81, Уффици

В имении, оставленном врагами,
Среди картин, среди старинных рам
С холста в тяжёлой золочёной раме
Мадонна тихо улыбалась нам.

В начале 1480-х годов Боттичелли создал «Мадонну Магнификат» (1481—1485), картину, прославленную уже при жизни художника, о чём свидетельствуют многочисленные копии. Она является одним из тондо Боттичелли. Подобные картины в форме круга были очень популярны во Флоренции XV века. Фоном картины является пейзаж,

«Мадонна с Младенцем на троне» (алтарь Барди) (1484), 

В 1485 году по заказу Джованни Аньоло ди Барди Боттичелли написал алтарный образ для капеллы семьи Барди в церкви Санто Спирито: о заказчике напоминают изображённые на картине два святых Иоанна (Иоанн по-итальянски звучит как Джованни). В XV веке, картина была оправлена в раму работы Джулиано да Сангало, в капелле имелись «алтарная завеса», витраж и «палиотто» из дерева (передняя часть алтаря). В настоящее время там остался только палиотто с резным изображением Иоанна Крестителя, сама картина, находящаяся ныне в Берлине, в 1629 году была заменена произведением художника XVII века Якопо Виньяли, сохранившимся в капелле по сей день. Рама же, завеса и витраж пропали.

«Благовещение» (1485)

Религиозные работы Боттичелли этого времени являются высшими творческими достижениями живописца.

Сандро Боттичелли «Мадонна с книгой».Музей Польди-Пеццоли, Милан.Фоном картины является пейзаж


«Мадонна с Младенцем, шестью ангелами и Иоанном Крестителем» (около 1485),


«Мадонна с Младенцем и пятью ангелами» (1485—1490).

В 1483 году вместе с Перуджино, Гирландайо и Филиппино Липпи он расписывает фрески на вилле Лоренцо Великолепного близ Вольтерры.


Около 1487 года Боттичелли пишет «Мадонну с гранатом».

Мадонна держит в руке гранат, являющийся христианским символом (в руке у Сикстинской Мадонны Рафаэля первоначально вместо книги тоже был гранат).В 1493 году Флоренция была потрясена смертью Лоренцо Великолепного. По всему городу звучали пламенные речи Савонаролы. В городе, бывшем колыбелью гуманистической мысли Италии, произошла переоценка ценностей. В 1494 году из города был изгнан наследник Великолепного, Пьеро, и другие Медичи. 

Оплакивание Христа.1500

В этот период Боттичелли продолжал испытывать большое влияние Савонаролы. Все это сказалось на его творчестве, в котором наступил глубокий кризис. Тоской и печалью веет с двух "Оплакиваний Христа" Проповеди Савонаролы о конце света, Судном дне и Божьей каре привели к тому, что 7февраля 1497г., тысячи людей устроили на центральной площади Синьории костёр, где сжигали ценнейшие произведния искусства, изъятые из богатых домов: мебель, одежду, книги, картины, украшения. Среди них, поддавшихся психозу, были и художники. (Лоренцо де Креди, прежний компаньон Боттичелли, уничтожил несколько из своих эскизов с нагими фигурами.)Ботичелли был на площади и, некоторые биографы тех лет, пишут, что, поддавшись общему настроению, сжёг несколько эскизов( картины находились у заказчиков), но точных свидетельств нетПри поддержкой Римского папы Александра VI Савонарола был обвинен в ереси и приговорен к смерти. Публичная казнь очень подействовала на Боттичели.

The Mystical Nativity

В 1500 году он создаёт «Мистическое Рождество», единственное подписанное и датированное им произведение, где имеется сделанная по-гречески надпись: «Эту картину я, Алессандро, написал в конце 1500 года в неурядицах Италии в половине времени после времени, когда исполнится [сказанное в главе] одиннадцатой Иоанна, о втором горе Апокалипсиса, в то время, когда дьявол на три с половиной года был выпущен. Затем он был закован в кандалы в соответствии с двенадцатой, и мы увидим его [попранным на земле], как на этой картине».

«Мистическое Распятие» (1490—1500)

Он пишет "Мистическое рождение" , где показывает своё отношение к происходящему. 

«Последнее чудо и смерть Св. Зиновия» (1500—1505)

Последние из картин посвящены двум героиням Древнего Рима - Лукреции и Виргинии а также сцены из жизни Св. Зиновия

Четыре сцены из ранней жизни святого Зиновия

История Виргинии

История Лукреции

.Обе девушки, ради спасения чести, приняли смерть, которая подтолкнула народ к смещению правителей. Картины символизируют изгнание семейства Медичи и восстановление Флоренции, как республики.В 1504 году живописец участвует в работе комиссии художников, которая должна была выбрать место для установки «Давида» Микеланджело.Боттичелли «отошёл от работы и в конце концов постарел и обеднел настолько, что, если бы о нём не вспомнил, когда ещё был жив, Лоренцо деи Медичи, для которого он, не говоря о многих других вещах, много работал в малой больнице в Вольтерре, а за ним и друзья его, и многие состоятельные люди, поклонники его таланта, он мог бы умереть с голоду». 17 мая 1510 года, на 66-м году жизни, Сандро Боттичелли скончался.

Живописец был похоронен на кладбище церкви Всех Святых во Флоренции.

Если верить его биографу, Джорджо Вазари, живописца мучили в конце жизни болезнь и немощь. Он стал " так сутул, что он был должен идти при помощи двух палок ". Боттичели не был женат, детей у него не было. Умер он одиноким

«Сандро не идёт в свите других, но, соединив в себе весьма многое, что было разбросано, он с удивительной полнотой отражает идеалы своего времени. Не только нам нравится он, но большим успехом пользовался он и у своих современников. Его чисто личное искусство отразило лицо века. В нём, как в фокусе, соединилось всё, что предшествовало тому моменту культуры, и всё, что тогда составляло „настоящее“»

Affordable housing laid the foundation of Related Companies and we continue to place a high priority on developing, acquiring and preserving housing for this sector. In fact, over 60% of our 50,000+ residential apartment homes under our management are part of one or more affordable housing programs, and an additional 20% of these homes provide workforce housing. In the area of acquisitions and refinancing, we pursue properties that meet one of the following criteria: Section 8 properties with project-based contracts; Section 236 properties in need of rehabilitation; Section 42 LIHTC properties with expiring low-income restrictions; Section 515 FmHA properties with loans that can be prepaid; or other assisted properties, including HODAG, HOME, federal or state-financed public housing. Many of the buildings we encounter are in need of substantial upgrading and preservation in order to continue to properly fulfill the needs of their tenants. Given our 42 years of experience in debt and equity financing – as well as our extensive management of government-assisted properties – we are well positioned to buy out existing owners who lack the resources and experience to recapitalize and, therefore, wish to exit the affordable housing arena. In addition, with our extensive development experience, we bring the knowhow to expertly rehabilitate the units, thus assuring the continued viability of these projects for years to come.

The Yankees would just offer Greg Bird and that would swing the deal back towards New York’s favor. I bet Baltimore would even throw in Givens if Bird was centerpiecing the deal.

There are few players that can consistently impact games like elite NFL pass rushers do.Think Von Miller in Super Bowl 50, or Aaron Donald in…well, in any game he’s played recently.These players are the ones who can turn even the best quarterbacks into shells of themselves by constantly hitting them and making them run for cover.With that in mind, we’ve ranked the top-15 NFL pass rushers heading into the 2018 season.15. Myles Garrett, defensive end, Cleveland Browns The Browns got a nice taste of what Garrett is capable of doing in his rookie campaign. He appeared in just 11 games, earning nine starts thanks to a couple of injuries. But when he was able to play, he certainly looked like a No. 1 overall pick. With seven sacks and a forced fumble, Garrett utilized his exceptional combination of size, speed, power and athleticism to devastating effect. If he can stay healthy in 2018 he’ll be among the NFL’s sack leaders at the end of the season.14. Terrell Suggs, outside linebacker, Baltimore Ravens Take away th

          Early Eighties Mets All Around Player: Bob Bailor (1981-1983)      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Robert Michael Bailor was born on July 10, 1951 in Connellsville, Pennsylvania. Bailor was originally signed by the 1969 Baltimore Orioles as an infielder.

The five foot eleven right hander, couldn’t get a chance breaking into the Orioles big league line up with Mark Belanger, Dave Johnson, Bobby Grich, & Brooks Robinson solidifying the infield throughout the seventies. He made just a few brief appearances in both the 1975 & 1976 seasons. He was eventually chosen by the expansion Toronto Blue Jays in the 1976 expansion draft.

The speedy Bailor became one of Toronto’s first popular players during their inaugural season. He led the team in hits (154) at bats (496) stolen bases (15) & runs scored (62). He hit .310 (second on the club) with 21 doubles, 5 triples & 32 RBIs, earning a spot on the Topps All Star Rookie team. He was the hardest man to strikeout in the American League over the course of the 1977 & 1978 seasons, only going down 47 times in over 1100 at bats in those two seasons.

His average fell to .264 in 1978 but he still led the team in games (154) hits (164) at bats (621) doubles (29) & runs scored (74). He was second on the club to Dave McKay with seven triples & hit one HR with 52 RBIs.

In 1979 Bailor led all A.L. right fielders in assists (15) & was third in the league in fielding percentage (.986 %). His batting average fell to .229 as he missed some time in the summer on the DL. By 1980 he suffered more injuries & was no longer a starting everyday player. In December 1980 he was traded to the New York Mets for pitcher, Roy Lee Jackson.

In New York, Bailor became an excellent utility player, playing all infield & outfield positions. He proved to be a good leadoff hitter & a good number two hitter as well. In his strike shortened first season at Shea Stadium, he missed over a month of action, due to a rib cage injury. He debuted with the Mets on April 29th, entering the game in the 7th inning going 0-1 as a pinch hitter in a 10-0 blowout from the Pittsburgh Pirates.

He got his first start the next day & got a hit, followed a two hit game on May 1st. On May 7th he singled off the San Francisco Giants Doyle Alexander & scored what on Joel Youngbloods HR in a 3-2 win.

Baseball returned to action in early August after the strike, & on August 23rd at Riverfront Stadium in Cincinnati, hit a sac fly off Tom Hume in the top of the tenth inning. It scored Alex Trevino in what would be the Mets winning run. On September 16th he helped the Mets beat Steve Carlton with a two hit, RBI run scoring day in the 5-4 win over the Phillies.

Overall in 1981 he hit .284 in 51 games with no HRs three doubles, eight RBIs & a .352 on base %. In 1982 he started out with a big Opening Day in Philadelphia, getting three hits, driving in three runs & scoring two more runs in a 7-2 Mets victory. On April 28th, Bailor's RBI sac fly in the Mets top half of the 15th inning, off the Padres Gary Lucas, was another game winner in San Diego.

Back at Shea Stadium on May 10th, he faced off against Lucas & the Padres again, coming to bat in the bottom of the 9th inning with the bases loaded in a 2-2 tied game. Bailor doubled to left field scoring a young Wally Backman & Ellis Valentine with the Mets winning runs. In May he hit safely in eleven of fourteen games, raising his average to .353 by the end of the month. Bailor hit well enough into the summer to keep his average up over .300 until mid July.

On July 24th he had yet another game winning hit on the road, again in San Diego. The Mets entered the 9th inning behind 3-2, but Rusty Staub's double tied the game at three each. With two on & two out, Bailor singled, scoring Hubbie Brooks with the game winning run.

In August he had a modest ten game hit streak with four multi hit games, he also drove in ten runs in the month. That August he also helped turn a triple play with Wally Backman & Dave Kingman although the Mets lost the game anyway He finished 1982 batting .277, with 104 hits in 110 games played. He scored 44 runs with 14 doubles a .313 on base % & 31 RBIs. His 20 stolen bases were second best on the club to Mookie Wilson's record setting 58.

In 1983, things slowly began to look up around Shea Stadium, Bailor began the season on Opening Day as the Mets short stop batting in the second position. On April 13th, he hit his first Mets HR, it was his first HR in three seasons, it came off the Phillies Sid Monge, in a 10-9 loss at Veterans Stadium. On June 9th, he doubled home Mike Jorgensen & Danny Heep in the top of the 11th inning, of a tied game at Wrigley Field. They were the winning runs as Jesse Orosco shut down the Cubs in the bottom of the 11th. 

On July 26th, he tied up a game against the Atlanta Braves with a 6th inning base hit, bringing rookie Daryl Strawberry home. The Mets on it 2-1 on a Mookie Wilson walk off HR. On August 8th he was what appeared to be picked off first base in the top of the 10th inning in Montreal. But the ball got away from first baseman Al Oliver, causing Daryl Strawberry to score from third base, in what was the Mets winning run.

On the year, he hit .250, with one HR eight doubles, 30 RBIs & stole another 18 bases (second to Mookie Wilson & Daryl Strawberry) while getting into 118 games and scoring 33 runs.

That December he was traded to the Los Angeles Dodgers for pitcher Sid Fernandez, in a deal that certainly worked out for the Mets. In 279 career Met games Bailor hit .266 with 212 hits 25 doubles one HR, 69 RBIs 40 steals & a .308 on base %.

In L.A. he hit .275 in his first season playing a utility role in 65 games. He finished up his 11 year career in 1985 with the Dodgers. Overall he batted .264 life with 775 hits with 90 stolen bases, 9 HRs, 107 doubles, 23 triples a .310 on base % & 222 RBIs, only striking out 164 times in 2937 at bats.

Retirement: After his playing days he managed in the Blue Jays organization from 1987-1991 finishing in first place in 1989 with the Syracuse Chiefs. He then joined the Jays as a first base coach from 1992 through 1995 winning two World Series with the club in that role.

          Novo álbum da PALE DIVINE será lançado em Novembro de 2018      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

A Shadow Kingdom Records anunciou para o dia 23 de Novembro de 2018, o lançamento internacional do quinto álbum auto-intitulado, da banda de Doom Metal norte-americana PALE DIVINE, nos formatos de CD, LP e K7.

Por quase 25 anos a banda PALE DIVINE tem aperfeiçoado o som do Proto-Doom enraizado nos anos 70, particularmente com influências de Black Sabbath e da era Pentagram e Ozzy, mas também Lord Baltimore, Leafhound e até mesmo o primitivo Judas Priest. A PALE DIVINE verdadeiramente vive esta música. O gosto do público pode ser inconstante, mas os fãs conhecem do que esses caras são capazes e por uma boa razão, álbuns como "Thunder Perfect Mind" de 2001 e "Eternity Revealed" de 2004 são considerados clássicos do gênero, carregando a tocha dos ancestrais dos anos 80 como Saint Vitus e Candlemass, e mantendo a chama acesa a qualquer custo.

Embora tenham sido seis longos anos desde o último álbum do PALE DIVINE, o "Painted Windows Black", lançado pela Shadow Kingdom de 2012, o power-trio soa mais energizado do que nunca, aplicando tudo o que está fermentando no caldeirão da banda há muitos anos, PALE DIVINE explode com riffs enérgicos e arrogância a cada nova faixa desde linhas épicas de Metal até clássicos com influências de Blues. Naturalmente, a composição honesta é o centro das atenções aqui, e o PALE DIVINE possui a bênção de puxar tudo com estilo e graça, sem esforço e inconscientemente.

Na vanguarda, como sempre, estão os vocais sempre cheios de soul do guitarrista Greg Diener, que traz emoção e pungência a tópicos tão comoventes como “Chemical Decline“, “Bleeding Soul“, “So Low” e “Curse the Shadows“. O que é para não dizer nada sobre a produção de Pale Divine, que tem aquele calor rico e um som analógico tão real quanto o que acentua ainda mais a atemporalidade que a banda criou no mercado desde o início.

Você pode conferir um pouco do que vem neste novo trabalho da banda pela faixa “Spinning Wheel” já liberada no BandCamp.


Tracklist
01. Spinning Wheel
02. Bleeding Soul
03. Chemical Decline
04. So Low
05. Curse the Shadows
06. Shades of Blue
07. Silver Tongues
08. Ship of Fools

          High Key Versatility in Studio B      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
High Key Versatility in Studio B#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

The versatility of this studio is unmatched in the area.

With the exception of one window that receives direct sunlight in the early morning hours, Baltimore’s Studio B is a controlled lighting environment. What does that mean? Lets take a look

A Variety of Options

Along with the all white walls, (and ceiling to floor too) there is a large disc reflector that can help photographers bounce, cut and shape their light. Perhaps the largest factor in being able to control light in Studio B is the choice of modifiers.

Studio B’s Modifier Options
• 5’ Octabox w/ grid • 2’ Deep Octabox w/ grid • 3’ Strip Box • 21” Beautydish • 7” Reflector w/ grid • 40” Folding Beautydish w/ front baffle •
Add in the versatility of the very tall and very white walls…

The real star of this space ARE the white walls! The studio staff provides constant upkeep in the form of touchup paint in both of our spaces, but in Studio B it really stands out.

Our 14’ ceilings allow adequate space to boom, raise a light, or shoot downward onto your subject from a ladder. Each of the studio’s bright white surfaces can act as a bounce.

Don’t Get Cyc’ed Out

A cyclorama wall, the scooped floor of seamless white plaster is a truly wonderful feature, but you wont find one at our Baltimore studios. Instead, we opted to leave in the corners to allow photographers more flexibility.

You can still pull a seamless white look very simply by adding at least one background light, typically with it aimed at the corner or where the floor meets the wall. Creating your ‘hotspot’ on the joints will basically just wash them out so that they look infinite; like a cyc wall or roll of white paper.

High Key Versatility in Studio B#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Lets face it, with a roll of paper or a cyc wall, you can only create two environments: an all white background, or an underexposed grey background. Not that that is a bad thing, but along with those two setups, lets discuss a few ways that you can use a white box.

My favorite use of this would be high key lighting, but paying special attention to retaining awareness of 3D space.

Personally, I hate the idea of photographing people on white seamless because that’s how you shoot stock products. Furthermore, the lack of a shadow or some form of reference so that they don’t just look like they are ‘floating out in nowhere’. I want to see a floor, or a wall, or just a hint of them.

High Key Versatility in Studio B#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

In a 2017 “High Key Glamour” workshop with Zoe C. West, both the model and the walls were lit, but the background was about two thirds of a stop dimmer. This allowed us to see the corner that she is tucked into, and the floor as well. Zoe’s shadow outlines her left side, further adding context to the 3D space that she is in.

High Key Versatility in Studio B#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Of Course There Are Exceptions

Despite how I spoke down about it earlier, shooting a model against a clean and bright ‘superwhite’ background is not always a bad way to go; but there are definitely some ways to do it that look less awkward.

Breaking the frame is my personal favorite way to fix the illusion of your subject floating out in the middle of nowhere. In this photo (below) of model Lori Glimmer on the dance pole, her legs, and the pole each break the frame. This means that they are optically larger than the frame of view, so they are not 100% inside of it.

This forces us to think in just 2D space since ‘the floor’ is implied. Mind blown.

In the following two photographs of Lori on the pole, her hands are cropped out at the top of the image. These two are not ‘keepers’ in my opinion because I think that the crops are in awkward places, but they illustrate two important points.

High Key Versatility in Studio B#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

In image number one, the subject is about eye level and her (bent) legs are very close to the crop at the bottom of the frame. You don’t really think too much of it until you see the next image. Notice that the crop leaves lots of negative space below her, implying that she is higher up. Her eyes are much higher than the lens, which is looking up at her.

High Key Versatility in Studio B#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

So, even without showing 3D space, we can still use subtle imaging clues and perspective to define the space she is in… or at least avoid that awkward ‘floating’ look.

In the next image below (this one is the keeper of the series) Lori is 100% within the frame BUT the pole still breaks it at the top and bottom and this saves the image. It makes a great dancer promo image if you ask me!

High Key Versatility in Studio B#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

I should add that working with someone that is performing on a pole is all about timing and communication; practice is the only way to get better at it. For starters, you need to set up your lights, and your setup, will most likely limit the poses and direction that your subject can work within to get a flattering image.

High Key Versatility in Studio B#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Lets take a step back and look at the lighting setup that I used in each of the above images of Lori Glimmer.

There is a small octobox above her. It is gridded to prevent spill, and pointed downward. To achieve this, I created a mini boom using a C Stand.

The cone of light that this fixture creates is wide enough that she will be lit (from above) when she is just about anywhere on the pole.

The second light is a small strip box (3’ tall by 9 “ wide) on a standard light stand, lined up and pointed just to the right of the pole. It is about 7’ back (to allow a swinging girl some clearance) and to make sure it illuminates a wider area around the pole as well. Notice that these two lights are both pointed inward towards the pole. This is to allow illumination if the subject is pointed in either direction.

Take note that the small gridded octa above will only look good if your subject is looking up at it; if not, it will create dark under eye shadows. That’s a big limitation for sure, but we were able to work around it.

High Key Versatility in Studio B#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

The lights in Studio B, Alien Bees, have very short flash durations, which will freeze action despite your shutter speed. Because this is a controlled lighting environment, there isn’t much ambient to allow much motion blur. For that look, continuous/ hot lights are the way to go. Perhaps that will be a future blog post.

Especially Neymar, who is a gem of the sport when he stays out of acting school, and should know bette Would Brazil have gotten a couple of borderline calls late on if Neymar's reputation for simulation didn't precede him? We will never know His antics earlier in the tournament certainly made Brazil somewhat less lovable than normal. Belgium had the romance factor working in its favor here, and probably stole the heart of most neutrals It went two up in the first half before Brazil saw Renato Augusto narrow the gap to one late on, but that was were it ended. Neymar didn't shed any visible tears at the end – if he had there would be a Michael Jordan-style meme of him coursing around cyberspace by now – but he o ease the lines by clearing pilots in advance.

But, its really all relative and a matter of perspective. What we hear most often is people exclaiming how small the plane is or their reference to it as a puddle jumper. This, too, is relative and most often heard by infrequent flyers. Seasoned travelers know that as many as half of domestic flights today (if not more) are operated by regional jets.

          Comment on Changing Times by R. Hamilton      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The lack of frontier argument can also be made for using sufficient enforcement to deter, repel, and deport illegals, few of which are college educated (or even necessarily high school and English-proficient), however hardworking many may be - and among whom encouraging their children to have aspirations to not only prosperity but also self-improvement beyond the status of their parents, is less likely than among e.g. stereotypical (at least) Asians. Schools in poorer districts may need to segregate (scary word, that) those willing to learn (of whatever color) from those determined to adhere to the self-destructive notion that learning would be submission; and civil authorities would need to come down hard on gangs and especially on adults who organize minors to commit lawbreaking (stealing, dealing). That might improve mobility, for those willing to pursue it. Let those determined to self-destruction live out their lives making big rocks into little ones or the like, at least unless they radically change their attitudes and objectives; but free the rest from their influence. I was in Dayton, OH, not too many months ago. Reports put it relatively low in livability among Ohio cities, with the implication that crime and marginal schools were major factors, if trending in the right direction; but it seemed a reasonably relaxed city to me (unlike Baltimore, D.C., or presumably Chicago!), merely in need of a bit of maintenance in places. My first thought was fix the potholes and the schools, and do more vigorous enforcement (if in a community-centric way), and that's all they'd need to greatly improve livability; they have the rest of the trimmings in abundance for a city of their size: a diverse economy, higher education, fine arts, sports, etc. The difference in livability between Dayton and e.g. Pittsburgh would ultimately be a matter of encouraging a bit more constructive conduct...although I suppose that could be said, if in greater degree, of many places.

          Report: Red Sox in contact with Orioles about possible Manny Machado trade      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
On Monday, it was reported the Yankees were showing "increased interest" in Manny Machado, Now, the Red Sox are apparently in the mix for the Orioles slugger. Boston has been in recent contact with the O's about a possible Machado trade, according to Peter Schmuck of The Baltimore Sun. "In the wake of reports that the New York Yankees have renewed their interest in shortstop Manny Machado, two industry sources indicated Tuesday that the Boston Red Sox also have been in recent contact with the Orioles," Schmuck writes.
          Everybody Loves Manny      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
It's going to happen. Manny Machado will not be an Oriole by the time August 1 rolls around. We have avoided it for as long as possible, but here we are. The O's are bad, and it makes no sense to hold onto one of the most talented players in baseball with a contract that will be expiring at the end of the season.

I'm not crying! You're crying!

If you have been paying attention, you know that the rumors right now are as follows:

1. Seven teams have made offers to the Orioles.
2. All of the offers are said to be similar in value.
3. The Dodgers and Brewers seem to be the most serious, although that could change.
4. The Yankees have a stocked farm system and have re-engaged in trade talks about Machado.

Please, Orioles, do not screw this up. It's going to hurt no matter what. It's not fun to see your best player walk out the door. But they need to make this one count. It is not going to be a huge return as it would have been a year or two ago. But the front office should be able to nab a decent prospect or two during this process.

Do we really "want" Manny to be a Yankee? Of course not. But if they offer the best package, the Orioles shouldn't turn away just because of a perceived rivalry. Be selfish and get the highest return on Machado.

We get into all of that on this week's episode of the podcast in addition to some All-Star Game and Home Run Derby talk, Colby Rasmus leaving, Drake's new music, and Adam Jones's clever plan to help Baltimore win in the future.

Художники Возрождения: Сандро Ботичелли * Весна

"Весна" Боттичелли, "Весна" Боттичелли,
летящие линии в солнечном теле,
струящийся, плавный, томительный танец,
шары золотые, хитонов багрянец.

О чудо чудес, "боттичелиев контур",
мазок, убегающий вдаль к горизонту.
В изломах материй и складках капризных –
сознание хрупкости, зыбкости жизни.

(Кравченко Н.)


 

Сандро Боттичелли, ( настоящее имя - Алессандро ди Мариано Филипепи  1445 г. — 17 мая 1510 г.) — итальянский живописец тосканской школы.. Представитель Раннего Возрождения. Был близок ко двору Медичи и гуманистическим кругам Флоренции. 

 

ВОЗРОЖДЕНИЕ БЫЛО ПАДЕНИЕМ ИСКУССТВА
ПОВТОРИВ ХУДШЕЕ ИЗ ДРЕВНОСТИ
======================
за исключением возвышенного Леонардо
 
 
самое великое искусство было в Спарте
где деньги нравственно были унижены
как и высмеяна роскошь
 
в противовес тому в Риме возникло подобострастное 
низменное искусство натуралистического реализма
 
Боттичелли конечно рядом с ними приятный и увлекательный поэт
- но поэзия его лукавая и однообразная
 
я невольно сочинил стихотворение
читая публикацию
согласно моим взглядам на его картины:
 
 "Весна" Боттичелли - похожие лица 
летящие линии в солнечном теле
повторы зеркал или сон странный снится
и каждая женщина - каждой сестрица...
 
движения тоже похожи... похожи...
он все повторяет что б было не сложно
 
и даже когда он рисует Христа
виднеется все же женщина та...
 
старший брат зажиточный биржевой делец?
но яблоко от яблони падает недалеко
Боттичелли тоже кипит деловыми качествами
 
вместо волхвов к матери Христа с младенцем на руках
он отправляет в роскошных одеждах знать 
- властителей города Флоренции
 
возможно и первый шаг был решающим тоже
когда его отдали учиться ювелирному мастерству 
- эта профессия придала в его характере
практическому мышлению более предпочтительности чем эстетическому 
 
и то что обеспечилo его внушительными связями
его же и отвлекло от искусства
и он больше думал о выгодных заказах чем о загадках жизни
- что делает художника
и без чего художник не может состояться
 
в противовес ему Леонардо
- возвышенный мечтательный
поэт и музыкант и исследователь тайн природы
 
 Боттичелли занял прочное положение среди ближайшего окружения Медичи 
- так что ему было не до искусства
- надо было угождать сильным мира сего
 
картина «Венера и Марс» ... - поражает изнеженностью бога войны
- это хилый изнеженный и избалованный аристократ...
 
«Рождение Венеры» - и сама Венера и все прочие женщины 
что встречаются у художника на его картинах - написаны по шаблону
- везде одно лицо...
более того оно же и встречается вдруг и в изображении и самого Христа...
 
«Благовещение» Леонардо и Боттичелли 
- недалеко висят друг от друга  в музее 
я ходил несколько раз пытаясь понять разницу
- она меня ошеломила
 
Боттичелли изобразил сцену фривольную 
- кокетство девы и предложение молодого мужчины любить...
а Леонардо возвышенную
- это действительно благая весть...
о рождении сына божия...
 
живописца мучили в конце жизни болезнь и немощь...
" так сутул, что он был должен идти при помощи двух палок"...
Боттичелли не был женат и детей у него не было...
- и в жизни и в искусстве он был неудачник
 
как и Пикассо и Дали...
 
"деловые успехи" в искусстве 
до добра не доводят...

Алессандро ди Мариано Филипепи родился в 1445 году во Флоренции, в семье кожевника Мариано ди Ванни Филипепи и его жены Смеральды. После смерти отца главой семьи стал старший брат, зажиточный биржевой делец, прозванный Боттичелли («Бочонок»), то ли из-за округлой фигуры, то ли из-за невоздержанности к вину.

«Мадонна Евхаристии»
Это прозвище распространилось и на других братьев. (Джованни, Антонио и Симоне ) Братья Филипепи получили начальное образование в доминиканском монастыре Санта Мария Новелла, для которого Боттичели, позже, выполнял работы.Сначала, будущего художника, вместе со средним братом Антонио, отдали учиться ювелирному мастерству. Искусство ювелира, профессия уважаемая в середине 15-го столетия, многому научила его. Четкость контурных линий и умелое применение золота, приобретенное им в бытность ювелиром, навсегда останутся в творчестве художника. Антонио стал хоршим ювелиром, а Алессандро окончив курс обучения, увлекся живописью и решил посвятить себя ей.

Святой Августин в молитвенном созерцании

Семья Филипепи пользовалась уважением в городе, что, позже, обеспечилo его внушительными связями. По соседству жила семья Веспуччи. Один из них, Америго Веспуччи (1454-1512), известный торговец и исследователь, именем которого названа Америка. В 1461-62г по совету Джорджа Антонио Веспуччи, он был послан в мастерскую прославленного художника Филиппо Липпи, в Прато, город в 20км от Флоренции.

Святой Августин

В 1467-68г, после смерти Липпи, Боттичелли возвращается во Флоренцию, многому научившись у учителя. Во Флоренции молодой художник, учась у Андрео де Верроккио, где в это же время учится Леонардо да Винчи, становится известным.

Мадонна с Младенцем и ангелами.1470

В изменчивых лицах мадонн Боттичелли
есть то, что мы втайне от жизни хотели,
всё то, что пленяет нездешнею властью –
пронзительно-чёткая формула счастья.

Кравченко Н

К этому периоду относятся первые самостоятельные работы художника, с 1469 года работавшего в доме отца. В 1469 году Сандро был представлен Джорджем Антонио Веспуччи влиятельному политику и государственному деятелю Томмазо Содерини. С этой встречи в судьбе художника происходят крутые перемены.

Возвращение Юдифи

В 1470 году он получает, при поддержке Содерини, первый официальный заказ; Содерини же сводит Боттичелли со своими племянниками Лоренцо и Джулиано Медичи. С этого времени его творчество, а это период расцвета, связано с именём Медичи. В 1472-75гг. он пишет две маленькие работы, изображающие историю Юдифи, видимо предназначавшиеся для дверок шкафа.

«Аллегория силы» (около 1470)

Через три года после "Силы духа" Боттичелли создаёт св. Себастьяна, который был очень торжественно установлен в церкви Санта Марии Маджиори(Маggiori), во Флоренции.

Поклонение волхвов.1475

Появляются прекрасные мадонны, излучающие просветленную кротость Но самую большую известность он получил, когда, примерно в 1475г, исполнил "Поклонение волхвов" для монастыря Санта Марии Новелла, где в окружении Марии изобразил членов семейства Медичи. Флоренция времен правления Медичи была городом рыцарских турниров, маскарадов, праздничных шествий. 28 января 1475 года в городе происходил один из таких турниров.

Он состоялся на площади Санта-Корче, его главным героем должен был стать младший брат Лоренцо Великолепного, Джулиано.Его «прекрасной дамой» была Симонетта Веспуччи, в которую был безнадежно влюблен Джулиано и, видимо, не он один. Красавица впоследствии была изображена Боттичелли в виде Афины Паллады на штандарте Джулиано.(Об этой истории я писала в предыдущем посте)После этого турнира Боттичелли занял прочное положение среди ближайшего окружения Медичи и свое место в официальной жизни города. Его постоянным заказчиком становится Лоренцо Пьерфранческо Медичи, кузен Великолепного.

«Портрет неизвестного с медалью Козимо Медичи» (1474—1475)

Вскоре после турнира, еще до отъезда художника в Рим тот заказывает ему несколько работ. Еще в ранней молодости Боттичелли приобрел опыт в писании портретов, этого характерного испытания мастерства художника. Став известным во всей Италии, начиная с конца 1470-ых, Боттичелли получал все более выгодные заказы от клиентов вне Флоренции.

«Призвание Моисея»
В 1481 Римский папа Сикст IV пригласил живописцев Сандро Боттичелли, Доменико Гирландайо, Пьетро Перуджино и Козимо Росселли в Рим, чтобы украсить фресками стены папской часовни, названной "Сикстинской капеллой ". Живопись стен была выполнена в течение удивительно короткого периода, только одиннадцать месяцев, с июля 1481г до мая 1482г. Боттичелли создал для капеллы три фрески: «Наказание Корея, Дафна и Авирона», «Искушение Христа» и «Призвание Моисея», а также 11 папских портретов.

«Искушение Христа»— фреска работы Сандро Боттичелли, написанная в период 1480—1482 гг. Расположена в Сикстинской капелле, Ватикан.

На фреске запечатлены три эпизода из Евангелия, напротив расположена фреска «Призвание Моисея» так же работы Боттичелли, своего рода параллель из Ветхого завета. Надпись на фризе, увенчивающем фреску, гласит: TEMPTATIO IESU CHRISTI LATORIS EVANGELICAE LEGIS (Искушение Христа, несущего евангельский закон).

Наказание Корея, Дафана и Абирона
Боттичелли посещал Платоновскую академию Лоренцо Великолепного, где встречался с Фичино, Пико и Полициано, тем самым подпав под влияние неоплатонизма, что нашло отражение в его картинах светской тематики.

Весна.1478

Самое известное и самое загадочное произведение Боттичелли — «Весна» (Primavera) (1482). Картина вместе с «Палладой и кентавром» (1482—1483) Боттичелли и «Мадонной с Младенцем» неизвестного автора предназначалась для украшения флорентийского дворца Лоренцо ди Пьерфранческо, представителя семейства Медичи. Художник заканчивает картину "Весна", начатую до отъезда. За это время во Флоренции произошли важные события, которые повлияли на настроение, присущее этому произведению. Первоначально, тема для написания "Весны" была почерпнута из поэмы Полициано "Турнир" в которой прославлялся Джулиано Медичи и его возлюбленная Симонетта Веспуччи. 

Однако за время, прошедшее от начала работы до ее завершения, прекрасная Симонетта скоропостижно умерла, а сам Джулиано, с которым художника связывала дружба, был злодейски убит. Это отразилось на настроении картины, внеся в нее ноту грусти и понимания быстротечности бытия.В 1483 году флорентийский купец Антонио Пуччи заказал Боттичелли четыре картины вытянутого формата со сценами любовной истории из «Декамерона» Боккаччо о Настаджо дельи Онести.

                                                             Теме любви посвящена картина «Венера и Марс» (около 1485).

«Рождение Венеры»

Также около 1485 года Боттичелли создаёт прославленное полотно «Рождение Венеры». «…Что отличает творчество Сандро Боттичелли от манеры его современников — мастеров кватроченто, да, впрочем, и живописцев всех времён и народов? Это особая певучесть линии в каждой из его картин, необычайное чувство ритма, выраженное в тончайших нюансах и в прекрасной гармонии его „Весны“ и „Рождения Венеры“. Колорит Боттичелли музыкален, в нём всегда ясен лейтмотив произведения.

 

Венера (Рождение Венеры)1486

Мало у кого в мировой живописи так звучит пластика линии, движения и взволнованного, глубоко лирического, далекого от мифологического или иных схем сюжета. Художник сам режиссёр и композитор своих творений. Он не пользуется ходульными канонами, потому его картины так волнуют современного зрителя своей поэзией и первичностью мировидения»

"Рождение Венеры" написано несколькими годами позже "Весны". Неизвестно, кто из семейства Медичи был ее заказчиком.

Афина Паллада и Кентавр.1420.

Примерно в это же время Боттичелли пишет эпизоды из " Истории Настаджио дельи Онести " (Боккачио "Декамерон"), "Паллада и Кентавр" и "Венера и Марс".

Пир Настаджио дельи Онести.1487

В последние годы своего правления Лоренцо Великолепный, 1490г призвал во Флоренцию известного проповедника Фра Джироламо Савонаролу. Видимо, этим Великолепный хотел укрепить в городе свой авторитет. Но проповедник, воинствующий поборник соблюдения церковных догм, вошел в резкий конфликт со светской властью Флоренции. Он сумел приобрести в городе много сторонников. Под его влияние попало немало талантливых, религиозных людей искусства, не устоял и Боттичелли. Радость, поклонение Красоте навсегда ушли из его творчества. 

Sandro Botticelli - Adorazione dei Mag

Если предыдущие мадонны представали в торжественном величии Царицы Небесной, то теперь это бледная, с глазами полными слез, женщина, много изведавшая и пережившая.Художник стал больше тяготеть к религиозным сюжетам, даже среди официальных заказов его в первую очередь привлекали картины на библейские темы. Этот период творчества отмечен картиной "Коронование Девы Марии", заказанной для капеллы цеха ювелиров.

Портрет Данте.1478

В 1480—1490 годах Боттичелли выполняет серию иллюстраций пером к «Божественной комедии» Данте. «Рисовал Сандро исключительно хорошо и так много, что ещё долго после его смерти каждый художник старался заполучить его рисунки»

Клевета

Последней его большой работой, на светскую тему была "Клевета", но в ней, при все талантливости исполнения, отсутствует роскошно украшенный, декоративный стиль, присущий Боттичелли.

Религиозные картины 1480-х годов

Боттичелли, «Madonna del Magnificat», 1480—81, Уффици

В начале 1480-х годов Боттичелли создал «Мадонну Магнификат» (1481—1485), картину, прославленную уже при жизни художника, о чём свидетельствуют многочисленные копии. Она является одним из тондо Боттичелли. Подобные картины в форме круга были очень популярны во Флоренции XV века. Фоном картины является пейзаж,

«Мадонна с Младенцем на троне» (алтарь Барди) (1484), 

В 1485 году по заказу Джованни Аньоло ди Барди Боттичелли написал алтарный образ для капеллы семьи Барди в церкви Санто Спирито: о заказчике напоминают изображённые на картине два святых Иоанна (Иоанн по-итальянски звучит как Джованни). В XV веке, картина была оправлена в раму работы Джулиано да Сангало, в капелле имелись «алтарная завеса», витраж и «палиотто» из дерева (передняя часть алтаря). В настоящее время там остался только палиотто с резным изображением Иоанна Крестителя, сама картина, находящаяся ныне в Берлине, в 1629 году была заменена произведением художника XVII века Якопо Виньяли, сохранившимся в капелле по сей день. Рама же, завеса и витраж пропали.

«Благовещение» (1485)

Религиозные работы Боттичелли этого времени являются высшими творческими достижениями живописца.

Сандро Боттичелли «Мадонна с книгой».Музей Польди-Пеццоли, Милан.Фоном картины является пейзаж


«Мадонна с Младенцем, шестью ангелами и Иоанном Крестителем» (около 1485),


«Мадонна с Младенцем и пятью ангелами» (1485—1490).

В 1483 году вместе с Перуджино, Гирландайо и Филиппино Липпи он расписывает фрески на вилле Лоренцо Великолепного близ Вольтерры.


Около 1487 года Боттичелли пишет «Мадонну с гранатом».

Мадонна держит в руке гранат, являющийся христианским символом (в руке у Сикстинской Мадонны Рафаэля первоначально вместо книги тоже был гранат).В 1493 году Флоренция была потрясена смертью Лоренцо Великолепного. По всему городу звучали пламенные речи Савонаролы. В городе, бывшем колыбелью гуманистической мысли Италии, произошла переоценка ценностей. В 1494 году из города был изгнан наследник Великолепного, Пьеро, и другие Медичи. 

Оплакивание Христа.1500

В этот период Боттичелли продолжал испытывать большое влияние Савонаролы. Все это сказалось на его творчестве, в котором наступил глубокий кризис. Тоской и печалью веет с двух "Оплакиваний Христа" Проповеди Савонаролы о конце света, Судном дне и Божьей каре привели к тому, что 7февраля 1497г., тысячи людей устроили на центральной площади Синьории костёр, где сжигали ценнейшие произведния искусства, изъятые из богатых домов: мебель, одежду, книги, картины, украшения. Среди них, поддавшихся психозу, были и художники. (Лоренцо де Креди, прежний компаньон Боттичелли, уничтожил несколько из своих эскизов с нагими фигурами.)Ботичелли был на площади и, некоторые биографы тех лет, пишут, что, поддавшись общему настроению, сжёг несколько эскизов( картины находились у заказчиков), но точных свидетельств нетПри поддержкой Римского папы Александра VI Савонарола был обвинен в ереси и приговорен к смерти. Публичная казнь очень подействовала на Боттичели.

The Mystical Nativity

В 1500 году он создаёт «Мистическое Рождество», единственное подписанное и датированное им произведение, где имеется сделанная по-гречески надпись: «Эту картину я, Алессандро, написал в конце 1500 года в неурядицах Италии в половине времени после времени, когда исполнится [сказанное в главе] одиннадцатой Иоанна, о втором горе Апокалипсиса, в то время, когда дьявол на три с половиной года был выпущен. Затем он был закован в кандалы в соответствии с двенадцатой, и мы увидим его [попранным на земле], как на этой картине».

«Мистическое Распятие» (1490—1500)

Он пишет "Мистическое рождение" , где показывает своё отношение к происходящему. 

«Последнее чудо и смерть Св. Зиновия» (1500—1505)

Последние из картин посвящены двум героиням Древнего Рима - Лукреции и Виргинии а также сцены из жизни Св. Зиновия

Четыре сцены из ранней жизни святого Зиновия

История Виргинии

История Лукреции

.Обе девушки, ради спасения чести, приняли смерть, которая подтолкнула народ к смещению правителей. Картины символизируют изгнание семейства Медичи и восстановление Флоренции, как республики.В 1504 году живописец участвует в работе комиссии художников, которая должна была выбрать место для установки «Давида» Микеланджело.Боттичелли «отошёл от работы и в конце концов постарел и обеднел настолько, что, если бы о нём не вспомнил, когда ещё был жив, Лоренцо деи Медичи, для которого он, не говоря о многих других вещах, много работал в малой больнице в Вольтерре, а за ним и друзья его, и многие состоятельные люди, поклонники его таланта, он мог бы умереть с голоду». 17 мая 1510 года, на 66-м году жизни, Сандро Боттичелли скончался.

Живописец был похоронен на кладбище церкви Всех Святых во Флоренции.

Если верить его биографу, Джорджо Вазари, живописца мучили в конце жизни болезнь и немощь. Он стал " так сутул, что он был должен идти при помощи двух палок ". Боттичели не был женат, детей у него не было. Умер он одиноким

Orioles shortstop Manny Machado is very likely going to be out of Baltimore by the end of the month, and if you believe the whispers, the Yankees are one of the teams that badly want to trade for him. For now, though, as the Yanks battle the Orioles at Camden, Machado remains an enemy of all that is pinstriped, and…

MAO: Thanks! A friend from Singapore turned us on to Sweet Home brand frozen Roti. They are a delicious, flaky and greasy. We found them at Shuang Hur in St. Paul now and then, but not reliably. I didn't find them at Little India or Pooja. Do you know anyone carrying Sweet Home Frozen Roti? What's your take on the state of Korean restaurants and groceries in the Twin Cities? It seems pretty far behind LA, NYC, and Chicago in terms of depth and quality. I think we might be trailing Baltimore too, their Ellicot City suburb seems to have some good and interesting Korean food/cooking going on. Last week, I had a meal at Honey Pig in Ellicot City and at Ho Ban BBQ on Hennepin. The Honey Pig was just plain better in about every way. I like Dong Yang for the good flavors, reasonable prices and atmosphere. Not so fond of Mirror of Korea on Snelling. Used to like Ho Ban in Eagan's Silver Bell Plaza, then didn't like it for a decade, I kinda like it again. Seoul Kitchen on Snelling served some good food in a sorta run-down church basement situation. And Korea Restaurant in Stadium Village is pretty a good hole-in-the-wall. I haven't tried the Tofu house on Oak. I went north to King's once. It wasn't worth the drive.

          Original LGBTQ Musical SONATA 1962 To Star Five-Time NYMF Favorite Erin Leigh Peck      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Award-winning playwright Patricia Loughrey and composer Thomas Hodges announce that five-time NYMF alum Erin Leigh Peck (Motherfreakinghood, Grease! on Broadway) will step into the lead role of Margaret Evans in their original LGBTQ musical Sonata 1962.The production, which will make its Off-Broadway debut this August as part of the 2018 New York Musical Festival's Next Link Project, was originally slated to star Becca Ayers who has had to step out of the show due to booking a Broadway contract.

Previously presented as readings at San Diego's Breakthrough Workshop Theatre and at The Celebration Theater in Los Angeles in 2017, Sonata 1962 aims to bring to light the story shared by many LGBTQ people who experienced medical "treatments" designed to suppress their same-sex desires in the years in which homosexuality was categorized as a mental illnesses. Such brutal medical interventions are the precursors to today's conversion therapies.

When Margaret Evans' musically-gifted daughter Laura is awarded a scholarship to a prestigious university, it seems like a dream come true. But when Laura falls in love at school - with a girl - that dream is threatened. Inspired by historical events, Sonata 1962 is a heartbreakingly beautiful chamber musical about the length to which a mother will go to save her daughter in a time when same-sex desire was viewed as both criminal and curable.

Sonata 1962, featuring direction by Katherine M. Carter, will star Ms. Leigh, Romelda Teron Benjamin(Brooklyn), AnnEliza Canning-Skinner, Christina Maxwell, Aaron Ramey (The Bridges of Madison County, The Visit), and Laura Yen Solito (Kismit at NY City Center).

Performances of Sonata 1962 will take place at The Acorn Theatre at Theatre Row (located at 410 W 42nd Street, between 9th and 10th Avenues) according to the following schedule: Wednesday, August 1 at 8:00pm;Thursday, August 2 at 1:00pm; Friday, August 3 at 9:00pm; and Sunday, August 5 at 2pm & 5pm. Tickets forSonata 1962 and the rest of this year's New York Musical Festival selections can be purchased online atwww.nymf.org

Художники Возрождения: Сандро Ботичелли * Весна

"Весна" Боттичелли, "Весна" Боттичелли,
летящие линии в солнечном теле,
струящийся, плавный, томительный танец,
шары золотые, хитонов багрянец.

О чудо чудес, "боттичелиев контур",
мазок, убегающий вдаль к горизонту.
В изломах материй и складках капризных –
сознание хрупкости, зыбкости жизни.

(Кравченко Н.)


 

Сандро Боттичелли, ( настоящее имя - Алессандро ди Мариано Филипепи  1445 г. — 17 мая 1510 г.) — итальянский живописец тосканской школы.. Представитель Раннего Возрождения. Был близок ко двору Медичи и гуманистическим кругам Флоренции. 

 

ВОЗРОЖДЕНИЕ БЫЛО ПАДЕНИЕМ ИСКУССТВА
ПОВТОРИВ ХУДШЕЕ ИЗ ДРЕВНОСТИ
======================
за исключением возвышенного Леонардо
 
 
самое великое искусство было в Спарте
где деньги нравственно были унижены
как и высмеяна роскошь
 
- Возрождение появилось со свободой от правил в искусстве
в работах - Рембрандта Гойи Шардена Ван-Гога Врубеля и т.д....
 
в противовес тому в Риме возникло подобострастное 
низменное искусство натуралистического реализма
 
Боттичелли конечно рядом с ними приятный и увлекательный поэт
- но поэзия его лукавая и однообразная
 
я невольно сочинил стихотворение
читая публикацию
согласно моим взглядам на его картины:
 
 "Весна" Боттичелли - похожие лица 
летящие линии в солнечном теле
повторы зеркал или сон странный снится
и каждая женщина - каждой сестрица...
 
движения тоже похожи... похожи...
он все повторяет что б было не сложно
 
и даже когда он рисует Христа
виднеется все же женщина та...
 
старший брат зажиточный биржевой делец?
но яблоко от яблони падает недалеко
Боттичелли тоже кипит деловыми качествами
 
вместо волхвов к матери Христа с младенцем на руках
он отправляет в роскошных одеждах знать 
- властителей города Флоренции
 
возможно и первый шаг был решающим тоже
когда его отдали учиться ювелирному мастерству 
- эта профессия придала в его характере
практическому мышлению более предпочтительности чем эстетическому 
 
и то что обеспечилo его внушительными связями
его же и отвлекло от искусства
и он больше думал о выгодных заказах чем о загадках жизни
- что делает художника
и без чего художник не может состояться
 
в противовес ему Леонардо
- возвышенный мечтательный
поэт и музыкант и исследователь тайн природы
 
 Боттичелли занял прочное положение среди ближайшего окружения Медичи 
- так что ему было не до искусства
- надо было угождать сильным мира сего
 
картина «Венера и Марс» ... - поражает изнеженностью бога войны
- это хилый изнеженный и избалованный аристократ...
 
«Рождение Венеры» - и сама Венера и все прочие женщины 
что встречаются у художника на его картинах - написаны по шаблону
- везде одно лицо...
более того оно же и встречается вдруг и в изображении и самого Христа...
 
«Благовещение» Леонардо и Боттичелли 
- недалеко висят друг от друга  в музее 
я ходил несколько раз пытаясь понять разницу
- она меня ошеломила
 
Боттичелли изобразил сцену фривольную 
- кокетство девы и предложение молодого мужчины любить...
а Леонардо возвышенную
- это действительно благая весть...
о рождении сына божия...
 
живописца мучили в конце жизни болезнь и немощь...
" так сутул, что он был должен идти при помощи двух палок"...
Боттичелли не был женат и детей у него не было...
- и в жизни и в искусстве он был неудачник
 
как и Пикассо и Дали...
 
"деловые успехи" в искусстве 
до добра не доводят...

Алессандро ди Мариано Филипепи родился в 1445 году во Флоренции, в семье кожевника Мариано ди Ванни Филипепи и его жены Смеральды. После смерти отца главой семьи стал старший брат, зажиточный биржевой делец, прозванный Боттичелли («Бочонок»), то ли из-за округлой фигуры, то ли из-за невоздержанности к вину.

«Мадонна Евхаристии»
Это прозвище распространилось и на других братьев. (Джованни, Антонио и Симоне ) Братья Филипепи получили начальное образование в доминиканском монастыре Санта Мария Новелла, для которого Боттичели, позже, выполнял работы.Сначала, будущего художника, вместе со средним братом Антонио, отдали учиться ювелирному мастерству. Искусство ювелира, профессия уважаемая в середине 15-го столетия, многому научила его. Четкость контурных линий и умелое применение золота, приобретенное им в бытность ювелиром, навсегда останутся в творчестве художника. Антонио стал хоршим ювелиром, а Алессандро окончив курс обучения, увлекся живописью и решил посвятить себя ей.

Святой Августин в молитвенном созерцании

Семья Филипепи пользовалась уважением в городе, что, позже, обеспечилo его внушительными связями. По соседству жила семья Веспуччи. Один из них, Америго Веспуччи (1454-1512), известный торговец и исследователь, именем которого названа Америка. В 1461-62г по совету Джорджа Антонио Веспуччи, он был послан в мастерскую прославленного художника Филиппо Липпи, в Прато, город в 20км от Флоренции.

Святой Августин

В 1467-68г, после смерти Липпи, Боттичелли возвращается во Флоренцию, многому научившись у учителя. Во Флоренции молодой художник, учась у Андрео де Верроккио, где в это же время учится Леонардо да Винчи, становится известным.

Мадонна с Младенцем и ангелами.1470

В изменчивых лицах мадонн Боттичелли
есть то, что мы втайне от жизни хотели,
всё то, что пленяет нездешнею властью –
пронзительно-чёткая формула счастья.

Кравченко Н

К этому периоду относятся первые самостоятельные работы художника, с 1469 года работавшего в доме отца. В 1469 году Сандро был представлен Джорджем Антонио Веспуччи влиятельному политику и государственному деятелю Томмазо Содерини. С этой встречи в судьбе художника происходят крутые перемены.

Возвращение Юдифи

В 1470 году он получает, при поддержке Содерини, первый официальный заказ; Содерини же сводит Боттичелли со своими племянниками Лоренцо и Джулиано Медичи. С этого времени его творчество, а это период расцвета, связано с именём Медичи. В 1472-75гг. он пишет две маленькие работы, изображающие историю Юдифи, видимо предназначавшиеся для дверок шкафа.

«Аллегория силы» (около 1470)

Через три года после "Силы духа" Боттичелли создаёт св. Себастьяна, который был очень торжественно установлен в церкви Санта Марии Маджиори(Маggiori), во Флоренции.

Поклонение волхвов.1475

Появляются прекрасные мадонны, излучающие просветленную кротость Но самую большую известность он получил, когда, примерно в 1475г, исполнил "Поклонение волхвов" для монастыря Санта Марии Новелла, где в окружении Марии изобразил членов семейства Медичи. Флоренция времен правления Медичи была городом рыцарских турниров, маскарадов, праздничных шествий. 28 января 1475 года в городе происходил один из таких турниров.

Он состоялся на площади Санта-Корче, его главным героем должен был стать младший брат Лоренцо Великолепного, Джулиано.Его «прекрасной дамой» была Симонетта Веспуччи, в которую был безнадежно влюблен Джулиано и, видимо, не он один. Красавица впоследствии была изображена Боттичелли в виде Афины Паллады на штандарте Джулиано.(Об этой истории я писала в предыдущем посте)После этого турнира Боттичелли занял прочное положение среди ближайшего окружения Медичи и свое место в официальной жизни города. Его постоянным заказчиком становится Лоренцо Пьерфранческо Медичи, кузен Великолепного.

«Портрет неизвестного с медалью Козимо Медичи» (1474—1475)

Вскоре после турнира, еще до отъезда художника в Рим тот заказывает ему несколько работ. Еще в ранней молодости Боттичелли приобрел опыт в писании портретов, этого характерного испытания мастерства художника. Став известным во всей Италии, начиная с конца 1470-ых, Боттичелли получал все более выгодные заказы от клиентов вне Флоренции.

«Призвание Моисея»
В 1481 Римский папа Сикст IV пригласил живописцев Сандро Боттичелли, Доменико Гирландайо, Пьетро Перуджино и Козимо Росселли в Рим, чтобы украсить фресками стены папской часовни, названной "Сикстинской капеллой ". Живопись стен была выполнена в течение удивительно короткого периода, только одиннадцать месяцев, с июля 1481г до мая 1482г. Боттичелли создал для капеллы три фрески: «Наказание Корея, Дафна и Авирона», «Искушение Христа» и «Призвание Моисея», а также 11 папских портретов.

«Искушение Христа»— фреска работы Сандро Боттичелли, написанная в период 1480—1482 гг. Расположена в Сикстинской капелле, Ватикан.

На фреске запечатлены три эпизода из Евангелия, напротив расположена фреска «Призвание Моисея» так же работы Боттичелли, своего рода параллель из Ветхого завета. Надпись на фризе, увенчивающем фреску, гласит: TEMPTATIO IESU CHRISTI LATORIS EVANGELICAE LEGIS (Искушение Христа, несущего евангельский закон).

Наказание Корея, Дафана и Абирона
Боттичелли посещал Платоновскую академию Лоренцо Великолепного, где встречался с Фичино, Пико и Полициано, тем самым подпав под влияние неоплатонизма, что нашло отражение в его картинах светской тематики.

Весна.1478

Самое известное и самое загадочное произведение Боттичелли — «Весна» (Primavera) (1482). Картина вместе с «Палладой и кентавром» (1482—1483) Боттичелли и «Мадонной с Младенцем» неизвестного автора предназначалась для украшения флорентийского дворца Лоренцо ди Пьерфранческо, представителя семейства Медичи. Художник заканчивает картину "Весна", начатую до отъезда. За это время во Флоренции произошли важные события, которые повлияли на настроение, присущее этому произведению. Первоначально, тема для написания "Весны" была почерпнута из поэмы Полициано "Турнир" в которой прославлялся Джулиано Медичи и его возлюбленная Симонетта Веспуччи. 

Однако за время, прошедшее от начала работы до ее завершения, прекрасная Симонетта скоропостижно умерла, а сам Джулиано, с которым художника связывала дружба, был злодейски убит. Это отразилось на настроении картины, внеся в нее ноту грусти и понимания быстротечности бытия.В 1483 году флорентийский купец Антонио Пуччи заказал Боттичелли четыре картины вытянутого формата со сценами любовной истории из «Декамерона» Боккаччо о Настаджо дельи Онести.

                                                             Теме любви посвящена картина «Венера и Марс» (около 1485).

«Рождение Венеры»

Также около 1485 года Боттичелли создаёт прославленное полотно «Рождение Венеры». «…Что отличает творчество Сандро Боттичелли от манеры его современников — мастеров кватроченто, да, впрочем, и живописцев всех времён и народов? Это особая певучесть линии в каждой из его картин, необычайное чувство ритма, выраженное в тончайших нюансах и в прекрасной гармонии его „Весны“ и „Рождения Венеры“. Колорит Боттичелли музыкален, в нём всегда ясен лейтмотив произведения.

 

Венера (Рождение Венеры)1486

Мало у кого в мировой живописи так звучит пластика линии, движения и взволнованного, глубоко лирического, далекого от мифологического или иных схем сюжета. Художник сам режиссёр и композитор своих творений. Он не пользуется ходульными канонами, потому его картины так волнуют современного зрителя своей поэзией и первичностью мировидения»

"Рождение Венеры" написано несколькими годами позже "Весны". Неизвестно, кто из семейства Медичи был ее заказчиком.

Афина Паллада и Кентавр.1420.

Примерно в это же время Боттичелли пишет эпизоды из " Истории Настаджио дельи Онести " (Боккачио "Декамерон"), "Паллада и Кентавр" и "Венера и Марс".

Пир Настаджио дельи Онести.1487

В последние годы своего правления Лоренцо Великолепный, 1490г призвал во Флоренцию известного проповедника Фра Джироламо Савонаролу. Видимо, этим Великолепный
