          Born on the Same Day - 10/14/1940      Cache   Translate Page      
Another installment in my "Born on the Same Day" series, featuring players who were born on the same day (!) and year. 

This is post #18 in the series: Tommy Harper and Billy Sorrell - both born on 10/14/1940.


Tommy Harper came up with the Reds in 1962 and was a starting corner outfielder for them from 1963 to 1967 (leading the NL with 127 runs scored in 1965).

After 1 year in Cleveland, he was selected by the Seattle Pilots in the expansion draft and was their starting 2B/3B in 1969. That season he led the AL in stolen bases (and also in times caught stealing).
He played 2 more seasons with the Brewers as their starting 3rd baseman (although by July 1971 he had moved back to the outfield).

Harper was a starting outfielder for the Red Sox from 1972-74, then strangely enough was traded to the Angels after the season for a utility infielder! He bounced to the Athletics and Orioles in late-75 and 1976 before retiring.


Billy Sorrell had a much shorter career. After playing in the Phillies' farm system from 1960-66, the Giants selected him in the Rule 5 draft (snaring Sorrell a spot on the 1967 Giants Rookie Stars card), but returned him to Philadelphia after a few weeks.

The Mets picked him up in 1968 for AAA depth, and he also played for the Royals' AAA team from 1969-71. Sorrell managed to see action in 57 games for the Royals in 1970, which is why this card exists. He finished up with 2 years in Japan (1972-73).

          Young Benjamin Franklin (Nick Bunker)      Cache   Translate Page      
Much has been written about Benjamin Franklin’s life, especially the parts pertaining to his inventive side and his diplomatic prowess. He was also one of the early statesmen in the American colonies and soon-to-be American republic. However, capturing the evolution of Franklin into the preeminent American requires a dive into his early life. Nick Bunker’s Young Benjamin Franklin is a fascinating and ingenious read into a man that many could argue is the poster definition of a Renaissance Man.

Bunker takes us back to before Franklin’s 1706 birth, chronicling his family through its journey from Northamptonshire, England to London to Boston. Franklin’s evolution and rise to American prominence is paralleled in some respect by the life journeys of his uncle and his father, both moving upward and beyond in order to seek a better life. It was in Boston that Josiah, Ben’s father, cobbled through a life of Puritan idealism. Ben struck out on his own, alienating many in his family for his choices, as he moved from Boston to Philadelphia to London and back to Philadelphia over a several year period. Ben ultimately became the City of Brotherly Love’s dominant printer and helped forge many institutions that have carried on to the present day.

The early Franklin’s evolution into science is also chronicled, with the voyage ending just as his well-known electricity experimentation begins. Most of us are well aware of how the rest of the story ends up. But learning about Logan, Penn, Kinsey, Hopkinson, Allen, Potts, Nutt, and many other names that carry on to the present day in streets, schools, buildings, and communities throughout Pennsylvania helps us see Franklin’s astute understanding of relationships and alliances from an early age, with that knowledge helping shape him and our early nation in the years to come. Bunker does a great  job educating the reader about life in early 18th Century America and how Franklin evolved with the colonies and the times.

Trappist Blogging
in Honor of Thomas Merton's
100th Birthday:
Essay 3 of 6 on
"Fire Watch, July 4, 1952,"
the epilogue of 
The Sign of Jonas




Part One:  Isaiah, Dylan, and Merton

Kingdoms are poised to fall in the Book of Isaiah.  From a besieged city’s highest tower, the watchman will sound the alarm.

Upon a watchtower I stand, O Lord,
Continually by day,
And at my post I am stationed whole nights.
And, behold, here come riders, horsemen in pairs!
Isaiah 21:8-9

Watchman, what of the night?
Watchman, what of the night?
Isaiah 21:11

There must be something in these lines that resonates with genius because both Thomas Merton and Bob Dylan responded with some of their strongest work.  In “Fire Watch, July 4, 1952,” Merton’s epilogue to his book The Sign of Jonas, he opens with the line, “Watchman, what of the night?”  The 13 pages that follow are Merton’s response to Isaiah’s question.  Fifteen years after Merton wrote “Fire Watch,” Bob Dylan re-imagined Isaiah 21:8-9 in his famous song “All Along the Watchtower.”

Isaiah 21 is part of a section where the prophet issues a series of oracles prophesying the fall of cities.  Verses 1 through 10 address the impending fall of Babylon.  Destruction will come like “whirlwinds in the Negeb.”  Dylan takes this and hints at the storm to come: “The wind began to howl.”  The approach of the two riders, along with the wildcat growling and the wind howling, signals apocalypse.  The song ends just as the end of things begins.

The other Isaiah verse quoted above come from a second oracle.  Although it is addressed to Dumah (or Edom), a city located near Jerusalem, the subject still appears to be the fall of Babylon and its repercussions for Judah and Israel.  To the question “What of the night?” the watchman responds:

“Morning has come, and also night.  If you will request, request.  Return and come.”

According to the commentary of Rashi (1040-1105), the watchman’s response refers to the release of the Hebrew captives from Babylon (“morning has come”), a time that will be accompanied by judgment for some (“and also night”).  The exiles are urged to request permission of the conquering Persian army to return to the ancestral home (“If you will request, request.”).  And the passage ends with a call for all to return with appropriate humility and repentance (“Return and come.”).

The Fall of Babylon (1569), engraving by
Philips Galle (Netherlandish, 1537-1612)
after Maarten van Heemskerck.
The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Employing considerable creative license, Merton assigns his opening Isaiah quote to God rather than Isaiah’s unnamed speaker.  In “Fire Watch,” the first line, “Watchman, what of the night?” is italicized.  Merton doesn’t return to italics until the penultimate three-paragraph section of the essay where “The Voice of God is Heard in Paradise.”  In this construction, God opens the essay with a question and concludes with a strong (if ambiguous) statement.  In between, Merton ventures his own tentative responses to the question, “What of the night?”

Merton differs from both Isaiah and Dylan in his gentle treatment of the wilderness.  In Isaiah, the animals of the countryside will surely kill you:  “And the birds of prey will summer upon them (the people who flee the city)/and all the beasts of the earth will winter upon them.”  (Isaiah 18:6.)  Dylan is similarly ominous, with a wildcat’s growl announcing the impending destruction.  In contrast, Merton finds peace in the sounds of the Kentucky wilderness outside the monastery:

The world of this night resounds from heaven to hell with animal eloquence, with the savage innocence of a million unknown creatures.  While the earth eases and cools off like a huge wet living thing, the enormous vitality of their music pounds and rings and throbs and echoes until it gets into everything, and swamps the whole world in its neutral madness which never becomes an orgy because all things are innocent, all things are pure….  The heat is holy and the animals are the children of God and the night was never made to hide sin, but only to open infinite distances to charity and send our souls to play beyond the stars.
“Fire Watch, July 4, 1952”
Thomas Merton

Merton turns from the violent overthrows of Isaiah and Dylan to find a different kind of apocalypse in the night.

Part Two:  The Apocalypse of Thomas Merton

Lord, God, the whole world tonight seems to be made out of paper.  The most substantial things are ready to crumble or tear apart and blow away.
“Fire Watch, July 4, 1952”
Thomas Merton

Scratch the surface of the Abbey of Gethsemaneand a void opens.  Merton roams the silent halls on his fire watch, where everything is ostensibly quiet and peaceful, but his thoughts keep slipping toward premonitions of destruction and oblivion.

The monastery is solid as rock by day.  But, in Merton’s essay, everything appears different at night.  The night watchman’s job—keeping everyone safe from danger—is doomed to ultimate failure.  In the essay’s second paragraph, Merton sets out on his rounds “in the house that will one day perish.”  In this context, the word “house” operates poetically.  In Merton’s very Christian understanding, it is not just the monastery but the world as we know it that will perish.

From cellar to tower, Merton’s prescribed route through the monastery is a search for portents of disaster.  He checks a fuse box, fully aware that a single observation per night is insufficient to ensure any real safety.  “I am satisfied that there is no fire in this tower which would flare like a great torch and take the whole abbey up with it in twenty minutes…”

As he ascends the winding stairs of the monastery’s tower, Merton foresees his own non-existence, along with the passing of everything he loves in the material world.  “The beasts sing to you before they pass away.  The solid hills shall vanish like a worn-out garment.  All things change, and die and disappear.  Questions arise, assume their actuality, and also disappear.  In this hour I shall cease to ask them, and silence shall be my answer.”

This is Merton’s mystic apocalypse, blessing the world while acknowledging its ultimate ephemerality.  Creation fades into darkness.

One by one I shall forget the names of individual things.
“Fire Watch, July 4, 1952”
Thomas Merton

The door swings out upon a vast sea of darkness and of prayer.

Thomas Merton

Even from the highest tower, all that can be seen is a vast sea of darkness.  This is our future—a night that can be faced with either hope or despair.

Nativity Blogging
for the Season of Christmastide 2014-15:
William Blake’s
The Nativity





The Nativity by William Blake,
1799 or 1800, tempera on copper, 10 3/4 x 15 1/16 in.,
gift of Mrs. William Thomas Tonner, 1964,
Philadelphia Museum of Art

The most memorable Christmas Eve sermon I’ve ever heard was delivered by Pastor Brian Rhea (now pastor at Newcombtown United Methodist Church in Millville, New Jersey) shortly after the birth of his second child.  Fresh from experience, Brian vividly shared just how gross childbirth really is, with all its blood, tears, and other leaking fluids.  And he didn’t imagine the manger was all tidy and neat either!  It was truly a great sermon.

Today’s featured painting by William Blake (1757-1827) is the polar opposite.  Blake’s The Nativity has to be the most antiseptic of all childbirth paintings.  The baby literally flies out of the womb, spotless and glowing, into the hands of the waiting midwife, in this case Mary’s cousin Elizabeth.

Detail, The Nativity by William Blake,
Philadelphia Museum of Art

While it would be impossible to realistically reconcile Brian’s sermon with Blake’s painting, I’d like to think that both descriptions fall within a broad Christian tradition that’s always been open to embracing paradoxes.  Blake’s painting is the real boundary-tester.  As expressed in his poetry and artwork, Blake’s mysterious, complex, and intensely personal beliefs evince strong Gnostic tendencies, and Gnosticism has been labeled heretical by the mainstream church for nearly two thousand years.  But given a choice between celebrating visionary genius or the cold judgments of Inquisition-style church tribunals, I’ll go with genius any day.  Blake’s okay by me.

"The Tyger" by William Blake,
Songs of Innocence and
of Experience
(1794),
Wikimedia Commons
William Blake dedicated his life to expressing his radical and mystical ideas through poetry, painting and etching, and the art of printing.  He’s probably best known for his poetry book Songs of Innocence and of Experience which contains the famous poem “The Tyger”:

Tyger, Tyger, burning bright
In the forest of the night:
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

The Nativity is one of fifty small Bible-based paintings that Blake made for Thomas Butts, an English War Office clerk, in 1899 and 1890.  For this project, Blake enjoyed considerable artistic freedom in choosing his subjects and approach.  While many of the paintings have been lost, there is enough of a record to attempt a reasonable guess at the scope of the ambitious project.  In Blake as an Artist, art historian David Bindman suggests that “the series probably consisted of approximately fifteen Old Testament subjects and thirty-five from the Life of Christ.”

Detail, The Nativity
by William Blake,
Philadelphia Museum of Art
The Nativity would have been the second of the Life of Christ paintings, following The Angel Gabriel appearing to Zacharias, which is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and preceding The Adoration of the Magi in the BrightonMuseum and Art Gallery.  In The Nativity, Joseph supports the unconscious Mary as she gives birth.  The child, his arms outstretched in a cruciform position, flies toward the outstretched hands of Elizabeth.  An infant John the Baptist sits in the lap of Elizabeth.  Behind Elizabeth, oxen contentedly feed from a trough.  The star of Bethlehem—cruciform, like the baby—shines through the window.

Throughout the ages, most Gnostic sects have professed a belief that the material world we live in is flawed beyond redemption and that secret knowledge is needed to unite the soul with the perfection of God’s spiritual realm.  This type of belief can become very dualistic, with earthly and human life viewed as untouchable.  A belief of this sort tends to rule out an understanding of Jesus as wholly Man as well as wholly God (a basic paradox of mainstream Christianity).  In most Gnostic sects, the earthy childbirth described in Pastor Rhea’s sermon would be altogether too yucky to apply to the spiritual being of Jesus.  Therefore, Blake paints a pristine, miraculous, and apparently pain-free birth.

Blake painted The Nativity in tempera, laying the paint over a mixture of whiting and carpenter’s glue adhered to a copper surface.  While he adopted this technique in the hope of preserving the original colors, his method failed, resulting in two centuries of darkening and surface cracking.  It’s not what Blake wanted, but I love the effect.  It brings out an other-worldly, archaic beauty in Blake’s vision that can’t be easily dismissed.  It’s hauntingly weird.

          Meditation on Henry Ossawa Tanner's The Annunciation      Cache   Translate Page      



Annunciation Blogging
for Advent 2014:
Henry Ossawa Tanner’s
The Annunciation




The Annunciation by Henry Ossawa Tanner,
1898, oil on canvas, 57 x 71 1/4 inches,
Philadelphia Museum of Art.

Detail, The Annunciation by
Henry Ossawa Tanner,
Philadelphia Museum of Art.
In Henry Ossawa Tanner’s painting The Annunciation, Mary’s toes peek out from under her robe.  She’s a teenage girl getting ready for bed—not beautiful perhaps, but when the light shines on her she’s radiant.  She’s a girl who has no idea how pretty she is.

Most representations of Mary in art depict her as older and classically beautiful.  She usually appears gentle, obedient, patient, and humble.  Maybe a little dull, too.  She rarely looks like the teenage girls I’ve met.

But, in all fairness, the classical representation of Mary is perfectly in line with the information that the evangelist Luke supplies in his gospel telling of the Annunciation.  When sending the angel Gabriel to her doorstep, God implies that Mary is just about perfection on earth.  This is the porcelain Mary of the Old Masters.

Painting in 1898, working from the same text as the religious artists who preceded him, Henry Ossawa Tanner teased out an endlessly interesting Mary who succeeds in being a teenage girl while also suggesting why God might look on her with approval.  It’s a difficult balance, miraculously achieved by Tanner.  I like to think he was working from that little section in the middle of the scene where Mary talks back to Gabriel.  “How shall this be,” she asks the angel, “since I have no husband?”  A good actress could say that line many ways.  It could be said with harsh disbelief (“Get real, angel…”), or deep sarcasm (“yeah, right…”), or confusion (“I think you may have the wrong Mary…”), or concern (“do you know something I don’t know”), or curiosity (“tell me more…”).

Tanner’s Mary is a charmer.  Overcoming any initial fear, she leans forward toward the angel.  She gives a little half-smile, as if coaxing Gabriel to tell more.  “I’m listening,” she seems to say.  “You have my attention.  Now convince me.”

Detail, The Annunciation by
Henry Ossawa Tanner,
Philadelphia Museum of Art.
She looks smart.  And she looks like she could be wickedly funny.  There’s a wit to the way she cocks her head, waiting for a response.  “How shall this be since I have no husband?”  She’s sharp enough to say it with quiet irony.  Then she patiently waits for the reply.  She’s a listener.

Her hands are clasped, perhaps implying that the angel has interrupted her mid-prayer.  But now the prayer is forgotten as Gabriel fully commands her attention and interest.  She is mulling the words of the angel, his prophetic announcement that she will be the mother of one who will “reign over the house of Jacob forever.”  That’s a big—and potentially awkward—claim for an unwed teenage girl from a small village like Nazareth.

But the light that fills the room is real.  Her inclination is to accept the miraculous.  And so she asks the question, “How shall this be…” already inwardly knowing that she is strong enough and brave enough to face this future.

That’s just my interpretation.  The son of an African Methodist Episcopal bishop, Henry Ossawa Tanner was doubtless better schooled in the Bible than me.  He taught Sunday School in his young adult years, regularly attended church throughout his life, and painted Biblical scenes with commitment and enthusiasm for more than three decades.  A couple of years ago, I attended the Henry Ossawa Tanner special exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts where you could view the range of his religious painting.  A gentle spirituality permeated the show, with The Annunciation setting the tone.

You’d think the innovative use of blinding light to represent the angel Gabriel would dominate the picture.  But Mary more than holds her own.  I keep coming back to Tanner’s representation of Mary because it’s her humanity that ultimately makes the painting so captivating.  It’s a humanity that is at the core of the Annunciation story and is so often missed.

Er - well, Smokey didn't get the memo and thought the Brits won...




Well, that or he is as big a Sherlock fan as I am...  Mum bought me that pillow for Christmas.  ;)

But meanwhile outside...




My Lily of the Valley is in desperate need of dividing. 









And I found some beautiful Foxglove and Delphinium to plant in my cottage garden!






And after those pics we painted the porch and fixed it up a bit...






 

It's been cool and very rainy here in the Midwest.  My heart goes out to the firefighters that died in the Arizona fire this weekend.  I hope you all are taking care out there and staying cool and away from the fire.  I'd gladly share some of this rain with you...

Happy Fourth of July!!

          All Time Mets HR Leader: Daryl Strawberry: Part Two (1987-1990 & Beyond)      Cache   Translate Page      
In 1987 as the Mets raised the Championship flag, Straw began the year with an opening day HR, and drove in all three runs in the Mets 3-2 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

He hit HRs in the first three games of the season driving in seven runs as the Mets swept the Opening series. He hit HRs in back to back in games at Philadelphia, including a four RBI day in a 9-3 win on April 16th.
 Early on he hit drove in 17 runs, hit five HRs & was batting .325 by the beginning of May. That month he started out with HRs in the first two games & hit nine HRs, driving in 16 runs with stole eight bases.

 On a West Coast road trip at the end of that month, he hit HRs in three straight games at San Diego. On May 22nd, he tied up a game with the Padres with a 9th inning HR off Mark Davis. Gary Carter followed in what was the game winning HR. In the third game, the Mets were down 1-0 in the 7th inning, when he homered off Eric Show, a two run shot leading to a 3-1 Mets win. On June 18th he hit a pair of HRs in Montreal leading to a 10-7 Mets win as he drove in four runs. He would only hit one more HR over the next month. 

All Star: By the All Star break he did have 51 RBIs along with 21 HRs, making his fourth straight All Star game. He went 0-2 in the NL's 2-0 shut out in Oakland, with Davey Johnson as the manager. 

 In August he hit four HRs the first week, including two at Shea Stadium against the Cubs on August 6th. On August 16th he had a four hit day at Wrigley Field in a 23-10 Mets romp over the Cubs. Straw hit a 4th inning three run HR off Greg Maddox, & then added a two run triple later in the game. He had six multiple RBI games in August, driving in 18 runs with 8 HRs for the month. He was the Player of the Month in September hitting another eight HRs with ten doubles 13 stolen bases & 27 RBIs. 

On September 9th, he hit two HRs against the Phillies at Shea leading to an 11-5 win. The next day he hit a two run HR against the St. Louis Cardinals in a crucial series, but the Mets fell short 6-4, losing to Ken Dayley. From September 14th through the 18th he drove in runs, in four straight games. On September 18th, he hit a three run HR & drove in four runs against the Pirates in a Mets heart breaking 10-9 loss to the Pirates. 

Even with all his hitting, the Mets could not catch the Cardinals this year, falling short of another NL East title. Straw finished the year (as one of ten players up until that point) joining the 30/30 club; hitting 39 HRs (3rd in the NL) & stealing 36 bases.

He put up a career highs with those 39 HRs, as well as setting a Mets single season mark. He drove in 104 runs (7th in the NL) hit 32 doubles with 151 hits, 108 runs scored (7th in the NL) 97 walks (4th in the NL) stole 36 bases, batted .284 was hit by a team leading seven hit by pitches & posted a career high .398 on base %.  

In 1988, Strawberry became the first Met since Dave Kingman to lead the league in HRs with 39. He lost out to Kirk Gibson for the MVP award but clearly should have won it. He led the NL in HRs (39) & slugging % (545%) driving in 101 runs while also scoring 101 runs (4th in the NL). He led the team in most offensive categories as well as in games played. He stole 29 bases while hitting 27 doubles hitting nine sac flies & posted a .366 on base %.

 He won the Silver Slugger Award, the first of two he’d win in his career. He became a poster boy for Kenner’s Starting Line Up action figures, and was being praised as possibly breaking Hank Aarons home run record. 

On the dark side of his life, his wife Lisa filed for divorce accusing him of breaking her nose & beating her. On Opening Day 1988 he hit two HRs, both solo shots, helping Dwight Gooden beat Dennis Martinez & the Expos in Montreal. He hit six HRs in April, amongst the tops in the league.

Then in the first week of May he bashed three more HRs. On May 6th, he had a big day agsinst the Cincinnati Reds at Shea Stadium. In the first inning he hit a sac fly & then added an RBI single later on. The Reds rallied to take the lead, but then Straw was the hero, as he hit a walk off game winning HR against John Franco. 

He had a few big games against the rival Cardinals in the month of June, staring with a four RBI day on June 6th in St Louis, leading to a 6-4 Mets win. On June 13th as the teams played a series in New York, his 4th inning HR of Ken Dayley tied the game, as it went into extra innings & Lee Mazzilli won it with a walk off hit.

On June 15th he hit two HRs & drove in three runs in the 6-4 Mets win as they swept the series. He kept his batting average over the .300 mark until late June, then had a good July to follow. 

All Star: In that summers All Star game at Riverfront Stadium, in Cincinnati, Cards manager Whitey Herzog let him play the whole games, as he went 1-4 in the 2-1 NL loss. 
 
In mid July he hit HRs in three straight games on a series trip to Atlanta against the Braves. On July 24th he hit HRs in consecutive games at Shea Stadium, then returned with a five RBI day against the Philadelphia Phillies in a 10-5 Mets win at Veterans Stadium. He began August with HRs in three straight games, but then only hit one more over the next month.

 In September he hit nine HRs, had four multi RBI games, including a stretch of five straight games where he drove in at least one run in each game, he middle of the month. Starting on September 18th, he hit HRs in three straight games, all led to close Mets wins on their way to clinching the NL Eastern crown for the second time in three years. Strawberry closed out the year with two HRs & three RBIs in the regular season finale' on October 2nd. 


1988 Post Season- NLCS: In Game #1 of the NLCS against the Los Angeles Dodgers, Straw's double off Orel Hershiser started a 9th inning rally with the Mets behind 2-0. He drove in the first Mets run, then scored the games tying run on Gary Carter's double, as the Mets went on to win it 3-2.

In Game #3 at Shea Stadium he had three hits, driving in three runs as the Mets beat the Dodgers 8-4. In the home 3rd with the Mets down 3-0, Straw doubled driving in Mookie Wilson with the Mets first run. In the 6th, Straw would follow Keith Hernandez's single with a base hit of his own & would score on Gary Carter's base hit. The Mets tied up the game that inning. In the Mets five run 8th inning, Straw added a two run single capping off the Mets 8-4 win. The Mets had a two games to one lead at that point.


He would hit a HR in Game #4 although the Mets lost the game 5-4. He was 1-2 with two walks in the Mets 5-1, Game #6 win at Dodger Stadium. Straw also scored two runs in that game as well. He was shut down by Hershiser in Game #7 as the Mets were finished off in the five hit shutout. Darryl finished the Series batting .300 (9-30) with two doubles a HR & six RBIs. 

 In 1989, Strawberry's offensive numbers declined a bit, his 77 RBIs were his lowest total since his rookie season and a poor .225 batting average his lowest up to that point of his career. He still hit 29 HRs good enough for 6th in the league. The fans started getting on him as well as the media. Looking back he may have unfairly taken some of the heat for the Mets not winning another championship. It seemed he underachieved although there was always pressure on him to do more although he still put up great numbers. 


That season Gary Carter was winding down his Mets career playing more as a back up & Keith Hernandez was gone. Howard Johnson emerged as the teams power hitter but he & Straw could not carry the team. 

 Dramas; His personal dramas continued when he was arrested for slapping his wife around and pulling a gun on her. He checked into rehab for substance abuse and a blood test proved positive of him fathering a child in Missouri.

In 1990, there was more change in the air for the Mets, as Davey Johnson was fired as manager & Bud Harrelson took over the position. The team once again finished in second place although they won 91 games (91-71). 

 
In June of 1990 , Straw won another Player of the Week Award hitting five HRs with twelve RBIs in the middle of a seventeen game hit streak. At the start of July he homered in three straight games, belting two in the first of those games coming against the Houston Astros. In each of those games he drove in three runs each time & overall drove in twenty one runs in the month. 

All Star: That year he played in his final All Star Game in a Mets uniform, going 0-1 as a reserve player in the AL's 2-0 win at Wrigley Field. 


On August 30th he belted a grand slam HR & drove in five runs in a game against the San Francisco Giants at Shea Stadium. On September 11, 1990 he hit a walk off two run HR off the Cardinals Lee Smith for one of his last exciting moments as a New York Mets player. He had another goo month in September driving in twenty three runs, hitting eight HRs & playing his last Mets game on September 27th. That day he was 0-3 against the Montreal Expos.

Strawberry put up strong numbers in the last year of his contract & final season as a Met. His team leading 37 HRs were second in the league, his 108 RBIs were 5th best in the league & tops on the Mets with Howard Johnsons 90 a distant second. 

Straw had 150 hits, good enough for a .277 average, he had 70 walks posting a .361 on base %. He hit 18 doubles the second lowest total of his career to that point & stole ten bases, also the lowest total up to that point in his career. He would never steal bases in double figures again. 


 In the 1990 off season he signed on with the Los Angeles Dodgers as baseball's highest paid player with a $23 million contract.

All Time Mets Leaderboard: In his Mets playing career he ranks among the best in most Mets all time offensive categories. Straw is first on the club's all time HR list with 252. 

He is second to David Wright in RBIs (733) in walks (580) & in strikeouts (960). He is third in runs scored (662) fifth all time in stolen bases (191) sixth in triples (30) eighth in games played (1109) ninth in doubles (187) & in hits (1025).

Honors: In 2010 he was inducted into the Mets Hall of Fame.

Post Mets Career: In California, he became a West Coast star & was named Big Brother of The Year. He hit 28 HRs with 22 doubles 99 RBIs & a .265 average in his first & only full season as a Dodger player. Injuries & more personal problems sidelined for much of the next two seasons, hitting only five HRs in each season.

He got arrested for hitting his new pregnant girlfriend, then announced he had a substance abuse problem. He then did six months house arrest for failing to pay $450,000 in past income taxes. He was eventually released by the Dodgers in 1994. He got suspended for violating the substance abuse program, coming up dirty for cocaine use. 


He was then signed by the AL New York team in 1996 hitting 11 HRs with 36 RBIs batting .262. He went to the World Series that season with old team mate Dwight Gooden. Darryl hit three HRs in the ALCS against the Baltimore Orioles, including two in Game #4 at Camden Yards.

In 1998 he hit 24 HRs making a big comeback, but was soon diagnosed with colon cancer. He had surgery to have 24" inches of his colon removed. He also needed chemotherapy because cancer had been found in a lymph node. He would need another treatment two years later. He rebounded from that as well the next season, hitting three HRs playing in 24 regular season games. He appeared in two more post season games driving in four runs overall. 

Then there was more negative drama when Strawberry got arrested for trying to pick up an undercover cop disguised as a hooker. He eventually did jail time and then  got divorced from his second wife before finally cleaning up his act in the new millennium. 

In his 17 year career  Straw was an eight time All Star, NL Rookie of the Year, one time Player of the Month & six time Player of the Week Award winner.

Overall he batted .259 with 1401 hits, 335 HRs (102nd all time). His 16.2 AB per HR ratio is 34th best all time. Darryl has 1,000 RBIs, 256 doubles, 38 triples, 816 walks (244th all time) 131 Intentional walks (67th all time) 898 runs scored, & a.357 on base %.

He struck out 1352 times (109th all time) with a career.505 slugging % (87th all time). 

In right field he played 1309 games (39th all time) with 2337 put outs (46th all time) 58 errors (44th all time) with 23 double plays turned (48th all time) & 76 assists.


Strawberry played in 40 postseason games, belting 9 HRs, with 22 RBIs and 20 runs scored. He played in five All Star games, making eight All Star teams with 12 All Star at bats batting .333 with two stolen bases. 


Retirement: Strawberry attended the Mets' 1986 World Champion team reunions in 2006 & 2016. He threw out the ceremonial first pitch in Game #2 of the 2006 NLCS & was at the closing ceremonies of Shea Stadium in 2008. Strawberry has worked as an instructor for the Mets at various Spring Training camps. 

In 2009 he wrote his controversial Autobiography “Straw: Finding My Way”. In that book he told of his own & his 1986 team mates wild escapades. He said “We hauled around more Bud than the Clydesdales. The beer was just to get the party started and maybe take the edge off the speed and coke." 

On the road, he writes: the modo was "tear up your best bars and nightclubs and take your finest women". The only hard part for us was choosing which hottie to take back to your hotel room. Lots of times you picked two or three a night." He talked about how the players would pick out women from the stands & send an errand boy to fetch them. He told of how he would have quickie sex in the clubhouse between innings. 


 In 2010 Straw threw out the ceremonial first pitch at Citifield & later in the year appeared on future President of the United States- Donald Trump’s show “The Apprentice”. Other celebs included Sharon Osbourne, Cyndi Lauper & Bret Michaels.


That same year he & his brother opened up a restaurant in Douglaston, Queens called Strawberry's. It closed in October 2012.

In 2013 he participated in the Charity celebrity softball game at Citi Field during the All Star Weekend. He was also on hand around the city for many of the All Star Game 2013 events.

In 2015 he & Dwight Gooden were subjects of an ESPN 30/30 special taken place at the same diner Goodfella's Movie was filmed in Maspeth, Queens.

His charity the Darryl Strawberry Foundation supports children with Autism. Straw also has worked as a studio analyst for the SNY network before & after Mets games. 

Family: His son Daryl Jr. played pro basketball in the NBA for the Phoenix Suns in 2007-2008. He also played in the NBA development league for the Albuquerque Thunderbirds, then in Italy for Bologna before he needed knee surgery. In 2011 he played pro basketball in Israel.

MetroBet takes a looks at the NBA slate for Wednesday with the Cavaliers taking on the 76ers and the Blazers facing the Clippers.

 

Cleveland Cavaliers at Philadelphia 76ers (-14)

Moneyline: Cavaliers +800, Sixers -1400

Betting Total: 221.5 points 

Time (Eastern): 7 p.m.

Both the Cleveland Cavaliers (17-50) and the Philadelphia 76ers (42-25) will be lacking some star power at Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night, as Cavs power forward Kevin Love (18.6 points per game) and Sixers shooting guard Jimmy Butler (18.9 points per game) will be rested. Despite what these former All-Stars bring to the table offensively, their defense is what will truly be missed, so it’s a good bet that this game will go Over.

Joel Embiid was ruthlessly efficient in his first game back from a knee injury on Sunday. In 28 minutes against a defensively-minded Pacers squad, the All-Star center logged 33 points and 12 rebounds. Small forward Tobias Harris tallied 16 points and has reached double figures in every game since he became a Sixer (13). Point guard Ben Simmons has been remarkably consistent in his last five outings, averaging 17.8 points and 8.4 assists.

The Cavs are 22nd in points allowed per game this year (113.3) and last in opponent field goal percentage (49.1). That does not bode well against a Philly team that is highly proficient on offense, ranking top 10 in scoring, shooting percentage and rebounding.

However, Cleveland is 6-5 over their last 11 games and just beat the Raptors on Monday night. Rookie point guard Collin Sexton has made strides in his last two contests, scoring 27 and 28 points, respectively. The Cavs may keep this game from getting completely out of hand, but not before the total is exceeded.

The play: Cavaliers vs. Sixers Over

Portland Trail Blazers (-2) at Los Angeles Clippers

Moneyline: Trail Blazers -130, Clippers +110

Betting Total: 233 points 

Time (Eastern): 10:30 p.m.

The Los Angeles Clippers (39-29) enter Tuesday night’s Staples Center showdown on a five-game win streak (and seven-game cover streak), while the Portland Trail Blazers (40-26) have lost three of their last five, with their most recent win over the Suns coming by just seven when they were favored by 12. Underdog bettors should be all over L.A. here.

Sixth man Lou Williams scored 34 points against the Celtics and, per Covers.com, passed Dell Curry to become the all-time leading bench scorer in NBA history. That came on the heels of a 40-point effort by Williams against the Thunder. Small forward Danilo Gallinari (19.3 points per game) has been in a groove of late too, averaging 24.2 points over his last five games, as has point guard Landry Shamet (9.0 points per game), who’s averaged 15.0 points per game in the same span.

Portland point guard Damian Lillard dropped 51 on the Thunder just two games ago and has averaged 31.3 points per contest in his last three against the Clippers, but a similar effort may not be enough based on the way L.A. is playing right now.

The play: Clippers spread

          Celebrate the man behind the magic at Philadelphia'a Magic Gardens this week      Cache   Translate Page      

When you walk around the city of Philadelphia, especially South Philly, you can find strips of gorgeous public art illuminated with mosaics. Most people who see the curiously placed mosaics stop and admire them for a bit, and others who pass by the works of art every day still have their head turn- especially when the sun hits the designs in just the right way. Those gorgeous works of art are from Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens creator Isaiah Zagar, and this upcoming week happens to hold Zagar’s birthday. To celebrate this joyous occasion the PMG is hosting a special celebration honoring Zagar next Monday, March 18.

Celebrate the man behind the magic at Philadelphia'a Magic Gardens this week

Zagar came to the City of Brotherly Love in the late 1960s and began what would be called the “South Street Renaissance”. Zagar and his wife helped kickstart the revitalization of the area by reinvigorating dilapidated buildings and adding colorful mosaics on both private and public walls. Years later, Zagar continued to showcase his work in vacant lots on South Street near his studio. In 2004 the owner of the lots Zagar was working on decided to sell the land and ultimately dismantle the work. Instead of allowing his work to be destroyed Zagar and the community helped save the works of art, and the preserved area became Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens.

Now the immersive mixed media art environment is completely covered with intricate mosaics made from handmade tiles, bottles, bicycle wheels, mirrors, and international folk art. The Magic Gardens have been open to the public since 2008 and folks from around the country, and the world, have flocked to the space to admire Zagar’s masterpieces.

The Gardens are honoring the man who started it all for his 80th birthday with a party on the 18th and some fun celebrations throughout this week. Visitors can head to the Gardens this week to sign Zagar’s giant birthday card to wish the artist a happy birthday and other well wishes. Then on Monday the 18th, the Gardens will be serving up cake to celebrate and PMG will also be raffling off an original Zagar mosaic while also hosting Golden Sunrise NYA Captain Michael Carwile and his spectacular mosaicked Mummer’s costume from 12-1pm. Some may have caught Carwile’s magnificent suit at the 2019 Philadelphia Mummers Parade where the 75-pound work of art was debuted.

Isaiah Zagar

If you want to honor Zagar and the gorgeous Magic Gardens head there this week and next Monday to show your support, appreciation and admiration for the artist who inspired many with his meaningful work.


          Senators Flyers NHL odds Sharks Wild hockey gambling advice      Cache   Translate Page      

MetroBet profiles a pair of Monday night NHL games including the Senators at Flyers and Sharks at Wild.

 

Ottawa Senators at Philadelphia Flyers

Moneyline: Senators +225, Flyers -295

Puckline: Senators +1.5 goals (-115), Flyers -1.5 goals (-105)

Betting Total: 6.5 goals (Over -130, Under +110)

Time (Eastern): 7 p.m.

Those looking to back the Philadelphia Flyers (33-27-8) on Monday night won’t get a great price, as the dreadful Ottawa Senators (23-40-6) are in town, but they look like a solid addition to any moneyline parlay. 

Philly’s offense has ramped things up in the absence of standout rookie netminder Carter Hart, scoring 30 goals in their last seven games. The play of right wing Jakub Voracek has stood out in particular, as he’s tallied 11 points in his team’s last five tilts. Center Sean Couturier has found the twine in three of his last four games, and captain Claude Giroux is in the midst of a seven-game point streak.

Brian Elliott has been serviceable between the pipes since Hart was felled by a minor injury. The team has been mum regarding a return date for Hart, but he is apparently inching closer to getting back into the lineup.

The Flyers have won six of their last seven games as a home favorite, per Covers.com, and are 17-6 over their last 23 contests. They should take care of business against a tired Ottawa team that’s 5-15 in their last 20 games at the end of a four-games-in-six-nights situation.

Prediction: Flyers win, 4-2

The play: Flyers moneyline and Sharks moneyline Parlay

San Jose Sharks at Minnesota Wild

Moneyline: Sharks -135, Wild +105

Puckline: Sharks -1.5 goals (+220), Wild +1.5 goals (-270)

Betting Total: 6.0 goals (Over -120, Under EVEN)

Time (Eastern), TV: 8 p.m., NBCSN

The San Jose Sharks (41-19-8) continue to roll over their competition, even without Evander Kane (mid-body), as they’re a perfect 4-0 without the left winger. The slumping Minnesota Wild (33-28-8) look like the Sharks’ next victim on Monday night. 

San Jose returns to the road, where they have won seven of the last nine tilts, off a perfect four-game home stand. The Wild faithful have been disappointed in recent games at the Xcel Energy Center, as Minnesota, who have lost three of their last four overall, is 1-7 in their last eight tries there. 

Right wing Timo Meier has picked up the slack since Kane left the lineup, scoring five goals in a four game span. Left wing Marcus Sorensen has added four of his own, and center Tomas Hertl has a pair in his current four-game point streak.

Sharks goalie Martin Jones, who has stopped 104 of the last 113 shots he’s faced (.920 save percentage), is more than capable of dispatching Minnesota’s 24th-ranked offense. San Jose is the best bet of the night. 

Prediction: Sharks win, 4-2

The play: Flyers moneyline and Sharks moneyline Parlay

          American Minute for March 13th      Cache   Translate Page      
In the U.S. Capitol Rotunda is a sculpture of women suffrage leaders Susan B. Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Lucretia Mott. Lucretia Mott was a noted Quaker minister praised by Frederick Douglass. She spoke at a Women's Rights Convention in Philadelphia, October 18, 1854, in front of a large audience which included supporters William Lloyd Garrison and her husband, Quaker leader James Mott, who founded the Pennsylvania Anti-Slavery Society. Lucretia Mott stated: "On the occasion of the first miracle which it is said Christ wrought, a woman went before Him and said, 'Whatsoever he biddeth you do, that do.' The woman of Samaria said, 'Come and see the man who told me all the things that ever I did' ... The very first act of note that is mentioned when the disciples and apostles went forth after Jesus was removed from them, was the bringing up of an ancient prophecy to prove that they were right in the position they assumed on that occasion, when men and women were gathered together on the holy day of Pentecost, when every man heard and saw those wonderful works which are recorded. Then Peter stood forth--some one has said that Peter made a great mistake in quoting the prophet Joel--but he stated that 'the time is come, this day is fulfilled the prophecy, when it is said, I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,' etc.--the language of the Bible is beautiful in its repetition--'upon my servants and my handmaidens I will pour out my spirit and they shall prophesy.' Now can anything be clearer than that?" Lucretia Mott, who is featured on a U.S. Postage Stamp, advocated for women suffrage, stating December 17, 1849: "The laws given on Mount Sinai for the government of man and woman were equal, the precepts of Jesus make no distinction. Those who read the Scriptures, and judge for themselves, not resting satisfied with the perverted application of the text, do not find the distinction, that theology and ecclesiastical authorities have made, in the condition of the sexes." Susan B. Anthony is depicted on a U.S. dollar coin, and on a 3-cent stamp. Susan B. Anthony was raised a Quaker. Her father owned a cotton mill and refused to buy cotton from farmers who owned slaves. Susan B. Anthony's religious upbringing instilled in her the concept that every one is equal before God and motivated her to crusade for freedom for slaves. After the Civil War, Susan B. Anthony worked hard for the passage of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments. Opposing liquor, drunkenness and abortion, Susan encountered mobs, armed threats, objects thrown at her and was hung in effigy. Her efforts helped bring about the 18th Amendment (Prohibition), ratified in 1919. She succeeded in having women admitted to the University of Rochester, and campaigned for a woman's right to vote. Susan B. Anthony was arrested for voting in the 1872 Presidential Election, saying she "positively voted the Republican ticket-straight." Fourteen years after her death, women won the right to vote with the 19th Amendment, ratified in 1920. After learning her sister-in-law had had an abortion, Susan B. Anthony wrote in her diary: "She will rue the day she forces nature." Susan B. Anthony was quoted in The Revolution, July 1869: "I deplore the horrible crime of child-murder ... No matter what the motive, love of ease, or a desire to save from suffering the unborn innocent, the woman is awfully guilty who commits the deed. It will burden her conscience in life, it will burden her soul in death; But oh! Thrice guilty is he who ... drove her to the desperation which impels her to the crime." In a speech she gave repeatedly in the 1870s, Susan B. Anthony stated: "The prosecutions on our courts for breach of promise, divorce, adultery, bigamy, seduction, rape; the newspaper reports every day of every year of scandals and outrages, of wife murders and paramour shooting, of abortions and infanticides, are perpetual reminders of men's incapacity to cope successfully with this monster evil of society." Susan B. Anthony, who died MARCH 13, 1906, wrote in 1889 to Frances Willard, the national president of Woman's Christian Temperance Union: "Sweeter even than to have had the joy of caring for children of my own has it been to me to help bring about a better state of things for mothers generally, so that their unborn little ones could not be willed away from them." Francis Willard was the first woman college president in the United States. She advocated for the passage of the 18th Amendment, prohibiting alcohol, and the 19th Amendment, allowing women to vote. Her statue is the National Statuary Hall in the U.S. Capitol Building. Frances Willard, whose family changed from Congregational Christian to Methodist, wrote in A White Life for Two (Chicago: Women's Temperance Publishing Association, 1890): "God sets male and female side by side throughout his realm of law." Frances Willard's older cousin was Emma Willard (1787-1870), who was an American educator and historian. Emma was born in Berlin, Connecticut and began teaching at the age of sixteen. Emma was married to John Willard in 1809, and with his help she established a girl's boarding school in Middlebury, Vermont. She founded Troy Female Seminary in 1821, which was the first school in the United States to offer higher education for women. Elizabeth Cady Stanton graduated from Troy Female Seminary in 1832. Regarding abortion, Elizabeth Cady Stanton wrote: "There must be a remedy for such a crying evil as this ... Let woman assert herself ... and end this wholesale suffering and murder of helpless children." In 1895, seminary was renamed the Emma Willard School. Emma wrote many successful books and later built a school for women in Athens, Greece. In 1843, Emma Willard wrote: "The government of the United States is acknowledged by the wise and good of other nations, to be the most free, impartial, and righteous government of the world; but all agree, that for such a government to be sustained for many years, the principles of truth and righteousness, taught in the Holy Scriptures, must be practiced. The rulers must govern in the fear of God, and the people obey the laws." In commenting on the United States, Emma Willard stated: "In observing the United States, there is much to convince us, that an Almighty, Overruling Providence, designed from the first, to place here a great, united people." In 1857, Emma Willard published a book for children titled, Morals for the Young: or, Good Principles Instilling Wisdom, in which she wrote: My Dear Children and Youth:- Since, then, wisdom teaches us to rate everything at its just value, it is wise to seek the favor and fear the frown of God, rather than to seek the favor,and fear the frown of men ... Look upon a Savior's cross ... ask pardon ... and the Holy Spirit's guidance ... receive the Christian's armor."

          Pvt. Andrew Jackson Rose      Cache   Translate Page      
Andrew "Jackson" Rose was born in 1838 to Silvester and Sophia (Smith) Rose. In 1858, at the age of twenty, Jackson married Susanna Minerd at the Bethel Methodist Church above Paddytown in Upper Turkeyfoot Twp, Somerset County, PA, by Rev. Benjamin Price. The couple would go on to have seven children.

In August of 1862, Jackson joined his brother-in-law Martin Miner and cousin-in-law Ephraim Miner in the 142nd, and enlisted in Co. C.

The 142nd saw significant action on the first day of the Battle of Gettysburg on July 1, 1863. Pvt. Rose was among the Union soldiers wounded and taken prisoner from the battlefield. Jackson's right arm was amputated below the elbow due to the seriousness of his gunshot wound there. Pvt. Rose would later be exchanged and spend time in an Army hospital in Philadelphia before he went home.

A year after he returned to his home in Kingwood, Somerset County, Jackson, Susanna, and family moved to Fayette County, PA, where he worked as a farmer and a lay preacher, among other jobs.

Andrew Jackson Rose passed away on Apr 4, 1897 after suffering from lung and heart problems. Visiting at his deathbed was his brother-in-law and Co. C comrade Martin Miner. Pvt. Rose is buried in Normalville Cemetery, Fayette County, PA.

          Tattoos: A Body Modification or Expression?      Cache   Translate Page      

In today's society people with piercings and tattoos have been seen at a negative perspective. Individuals are judged with the stereotype that piercings and tattoos portray. Yes tattoos do define who an individual is, but, this includes their stories, what they believe in etc.. Not all tattoos make someone a bad person.

"The Tattooed Doctor." Neatorama. Purch, 23 Sept. 2007. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 
     <http://www.neatorama.com/2007/09/23/the-tattooed-doctor/#!r30u6>.




We begin with the idea of approach. If you cannot approach someone how are you suppose to trust them. Someone we put a lot of our trust into is our doctors. They have our lives in their hands. A recent article explained that tattoos are becoming less problematic in workplaces. Philadelphia's ZB Sports commented, "If I'd pass on [an individual] because of their tattoos, I'd be out a phenomenal employee" (Forbes, 2014). The picture on your left shows a man who is in two positions. The attitude is shown within his stance as the image on the far left shows a concerning doctor that is willing to be of help: Verses the same man on the right slouched forward holding his belt. This demonstrates that even though this is the same man because of his tattoos he is seen as unapproachable. The irony is the photo itself: It is the exact same man but the only exception is his tattoos, would you not let him treat your health because of that?



"Tattooed Teacher." Nkeiruka Sylvanus. Nkeiruka Sylvanus, 23 Nov. 2014. Web. 12 
     Jan. 2015. <http://nkeirukasylvanus.blogspot.ca/>. 
To continue we are brought to the virtues of acceptance, sympathy,compassion and tolerance. The picture on your right is a teacher-in-training that went viral through social media and was in the newspaper. The question that was asked was, “Would you let this woman teach your child?” (Daily Mail, 2014). The actions that were thrown at Charlotte Tumilty, age 26, were not the virtues stated previous. Instead they were the complete opposite. She was asked to cover all of her tattoos as the school did not want "kiddies getting encouraging signals about inking themselves at such a tender age" stated a teacher from the school in Hartlepool. The real question is why would you not if she was certified for the job: As stated above, if you did not hire someone based on their tatoos and appearance you would be out a phenomenal employee. The picture on the upper left portrays conflict, a struggle between opposing forces, the stereotype tattoos bring and a teacher. The attitude within the Charlotte’s face is surprise. Why would someone deny her ability just because of her appearance?

"Veteran." Media NCB. N.p., n.d. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 
     <http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/621*349/ 
     WEB+War+Paint+1.jpgVeter>. 
Furthermore, people respect Veterans and thank them for their service: Would you deny the service he has done because of tattoos? Of course not.The tattoos shown on this Veteran are not to make him look "bad ass" or "hardcore", instead their stories, they are his stories. The symbolism within this picture is his bare chest. He has been torn apart and stripped from the war, although he may have come home to a family he is left with nothing but his memories. Haunting memories, studies have shown that 20% of all Iraq soldiers suffer from PTSD, and 50% of them do not seek help. If you are going to give a Veteran a judgmental stereotype it should be "bad ass" and "hardcore" but not because of the tattoos on his body because of his bravery. His tattoos should have nothing to do with what he is capable of, instead they're the only thing keeping him and his stories sane.


"Angelina Jolie." Fan Pop s. N.p., n.d. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 
     <http://fanpop.com>. 

Finally we touch the topic of Angelina Jolie who portrays a vain, egotistic person on the left photo in the collage. She makes millions of dollars and spends it on stupid things like tattoos right? Wait is that the same woman who has won the humanitarian award several times? Beat Breast Cancer? Adopted Children and looks after her own? Is a loving loyal wife? Visits places all around the world taking care of helpless children? It can't be! But as matter of a fact is it. Jolie's tattoos are not meaningless, as a matter of a fact she has 17 and each one has a special meaning - this also relates back to the Vets tattoos and his stories. The one on her shoulder is the longitude and latitude of each location her children and adopted children were born. She has a huge one on her back that she got done in Thailand to express her involvement with not only her child from Cambodia but also Cambodia itself. When asked about her tattoos, Jolie said, "Usually all my tattoos came at good times. A tattoo is something permanent when you've made a self discovery or something you've come to a conclusion about" (USA Today Interview, July 17, 2003). The real Angelina Jolie is shown within the right side of the collage, a loving mother for her five children, and a loving humanitarian who cares for many children around the world. Her tattoos do not make her vain and egotistic, she has depth, she shows meaning throughout her body.

In conclusion, all 4 images prove that the negative attitude towards tattoos and piercings are inaccurate. Each image includes a public figure that is thought of highly. Tattoos do not define who a person is as they are just expressing themselves through a piece of art. This piece of art should not be looked at negatively and be able to destroy what that person is capable of.

          The United City-States Of America, Mapped - An Experiment In Redividing The Country      Cache   Translate Page      

Authored by Nolan Gray via Medium.com,

From ancient Greece to Renaissance Italy to the Four Asian Tigers, city-states have always punched above their weight. They’ve driven culture forward, facilitated global commerce, and charged ahead of their nation-bound peers.

Indeed, cities  - and the metropolitan regions that orbit around them  -  make sense as a political and economic unit. The key services we depend on government to do, from building infrastructure to ensuring public safety, are mostly handled by cities. And contrary to earlier predictions, the forces of globalization and the rise of the information economy have only made cities more important as economic engines and innovation hubs. It’s no surprise, then, that cities — and their mayors — are increasingly finding their voices in a world previously dominated by nations and international entities.

Unfortunately, the way the United States is structured today undermines this trend by privileging states as the key political entity. State boundaries in these modern times are typically arbitrary and often no longer reflect any meaningful political, cultural, or economic reality. Some U.S. cities, both big and small, manage to straddle state borders (think Texarkana or Bristol) while others run right up to the state edge but sharply hug the border (think Cincinnati or St. Louis). And a number of states are inexplicably fragmented because their seat of government is very different from their most populous town (think New York City/Albany and Chicago/Springfield). This often results in excessive fragmentationunproductive competition, and a near total lack of regional land-use and transportation planning. We all suffer as a result.

Both to satisfy my own curiosity and set out a vision for what a city-oriented United States might look like, I decided to make a map that dispensed with the continental 48 states and instead divvied up the land into 100 city-states.

As a process-obsessed city planner, I started by listing the top 150 metropolitan statistical areas in the continental United States. This seemed like the natural base for any potential city-states as MSAs reflect economic integration. Next, I mixed in combined statistical areas, which factor together adjacent metro- and micropolitan areas. I cut the list to the top 100 units by population. (Congratulations to Lancaster, Pennsylvania — the smallest unit to make the cut!)

Then came the mapping. I used shapefiles provided by the Census to make “city-state cores” on a single map using GIS, a tool used for map making and spatial analysis. By using more data and selecting certain attributes, I assigned each county to a city-state core. To finish it up, I cleaned up awkward and nonsensical boundaries with some manual adjustment.

The final product was this map, and it led me to several takeaways:

The eastern United States is like medieval Europe.

As of 2010, the population center of the United States is somewhere in the middle of Missouri. It’s been moving westward, needless to say, but also south over time. This mostly jives with this map: The United States east of the Kansas-Missouri line is a dynamic hodgepodge of small, densely populated city-states. The economies and cultures of places like New York and Philadelphia, Charlotte and Greensboro, and Fort Wayne and South Bend will likely always be intimately intermingled. West of this line, excluding California and Texas, the United States is largely underpopulated, with cities like Denver, Omaha, and Boise playing an outsized role — economically and culturally — in their respective regions.

My home state of Kentucky is shattered.

Let’s face it: Kentucky is incoherent as a cultural-political entity. The Louisville metropolitan area and the northern Kentucky suburbs of Cincinnati are essentially southern reaches of the Rust Belt. The state’s east and southeast have more in common with West Virginia, including a shared Appalachian heritage. Western and southwestern Kentucky feel much more conventionally Southern. All of this is largely captured by how the state is divided up. Not accidentally, the only purely Kentucky city-state produced — Lexington — captures most of what Kentucky is best known for: University of Kentucky basketball, the first Kentucky Fried Chicken, most of the major bourbon distilleries, the Daniel Boone National Forest, and the state’s famous Bluegrass horse farm region.

Maine and Minnesota are basically already city-states.

Only two city-states capture the entirety of a current U.S. state: Portland, which captures Maine and parts of New Hampshire, and Minneapolis-St. Paul, which captures Minnesota and parts of Wisconsin, South Dakota, and three-quarters of North Dakota. Portland barely made the cut; in an actual fragmentation scenario, I could see most of Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine falling under a Boston city-state. Minneapolis-St. Paul, however, makes sense. Its influence sweeps across the northern Midwest, as evidenced in films like Fargo. Some western metro areas in New Mexico and Utah nearly made the cut, but their southern regions were nipped by El Paso and Las Vegas, respectively.

Some states would disappear entirely.

A handful of states in this new map are completely covered by the city-states of their former neighboring states. Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Rhode Island, South Dakota, and Vermont would all basically be gone. Delaware and Rhode Island both have great cities — Wilmington and Providence — but both would be unambiguously absorbed by their monolithic neighbors — Philadelphia and Boston, respectively. The upper Mountain West as well as New Hampshire and Vermont simply lack large cities.

City-states of tomorrow may boom at any time.

As states like Montana, North Dakota, and South Dakota continue to experience explosive population growth, they will inevitably give rise to their own great cities. For all we know, Billings, Fargo, and Sioux Falls could emerge as urban powerhouses in the 21st century, not unlike nearby Minneapolis, Denver, and Salt Lake City did in the 20th century.

An odd oversight in our federal system is that it’s basically impossible for states to split, join, or shift around their borders. Outside of a few weird cases — such as West Virginia — basically all new states have come from newly settled land. As new city-states emerge in places like the Mountain West, how would they be incorporated into this system? Would the arrangement be capped at 100 city-states? Alternatively, could states combine as their economies and development slowly blends, as could very well happen with small city-states like Lancaster, Toledo, and Fresno? It’s a fun thought experiment.

In a time when we aren’t often drawing up new borders for established countries like the U.S., it’s interesting to think “what if.” What might be the political implications of a system like this? At the outset, a system of city-states could help to achieve economies of scale in providing local services like libraries and parks, saving taxpayers money while improving service quality.

But they could also overcome some of the prisoner’s dilemma problems associated with policies like housing, schools, and subsidies. In our current system of municipal fragmentation, it’s easy for NIMBYs (“Not in My Back Yard” campaigns) to block the construction of new housing in prospering areas and keep low- and moderate-income students out of high-quality schools districts. A unified city-state could overcome some of these issues, taking the broader perspective and equitably distributing the burdens and benefits of growth.

A city-state restructuring could also have deep implications for national politics. One of the key takeaways of the 2016 presidential election is the mounting urban-rural political divide, with voters in cities and the countryside growing increasingly disconnected and antagonistic toward one another. (At the bottom of this piece is a map of how the city-states likely would have voted.) Insomuch as a city-state scenario would bundle Americans based on broadly similar economic, social, cultural backgrounds, it could encourage both sides to seriously contend with with the needs and preferences of their neighbors.

Of course, at this stage, it’s all speculation. How would you have drawn city-state boundaries differently? What do you think would be the political implications?

Las 31 mejores películas de vampiros de la historia#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Sus raíces se pierden en el origen de los tiempos, con leyendas de necrófagos y espectros devoradores de fuerza vital asolando Europa, y cuyos orígenes pueden rastrearse hasta las sirenas y lamias de la mitología clásica. La leyenda de los seres que dormían en ataúdes y se alimentaban de la energía de los vivos, con más o menos variantes, adquirió visos de auténtica histeria colectiva en algunas zonas de la Europa del este durante el siglo XVIII.

Pero no fue hasta finales de ese siglo, con la publicación de una serie de obras literarias con grandes rasgos en común, que no se dio forma a la figura del vampiro tal y como la conocemos hoy. El relato de 1819 'El vampiro' de John Polidori, 'Carmilla' de Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu en 1872, y la suma de ambos, 'Dracula' de Bram Stoker en 1897, configuraron al vampiro como una criatura maquiavélica y seductora, con elementos tanto de donjuán sobrenatural como de depredador de la noche.

Desde el 'Drácula' apócrifo del cine mudo 'Nosferatu' a las constantes reinvenciones del mito que continúan dejando secas nuestras pantallas, el vampiro nunca ha dejado de estar presente en el cine de terror. 'Drácula' es solo la punta del iceberg: vampiresas, chupasangres y príncipes de la oscuridad de todo tipo han poblado el cine durante más de un siglo. Para recordarlas hemos seleccionado las 31 películas de vampiros más notorias, para que mañana despiertes con dos pequeños orificios en el cuello.

Nosferatu (1922)

Dirección: F.W. Murnau

Reparto: Max Schreck, Alexander Granach, Gustav von Wangenheim, Greta Schröeder, GH Schnell, Ruth Landshoff

La primera película de vampiros vino también acompañada de polémica: era una adaptación no oficial de 'Drácula' de Bram Stoker. De hecho, para evitar problemas legales, palabras como "vampiro" habían desaparecido (sustituida por el magnífico término genérico "nosferatu"), y los nombres de los personajes cambiaron, pasando Drácula a llamarse Conde Orlock. Por supuesto, a la viuda de Stoker no le gustó un pelo, y emprendió una cruzada personal para eliminar todos los negativos de la faz de la Tierra, algo que no consiguió por los pelos gracias a los coleccionistas privados de celuloide.

En cualquier caso, la película es una obra maestra total del primer cine de terror, y una cima del expresionismo alemán junto a clásicos como 'El gabinete del Doctor Caligari' o 'El Golem'. Rebosante de lecturas esotéricas (Murnau y su productor eran estudiosos del ocultismo) y de imágenes tétricamente inmortales, es recordada sobre todo por la encarnación de Max Schreck como Orlock, un actor semidesconocido del que durante un tiempo se dudó de su existencia real, lo que inspiró el argumento de la magnífica 'La sombra del vampiro'.

Crítica en Espinof: Nosferatu

Drácula (1931)

Dirección: Tod Browning

Reparto: Bela Lugosi, Helen Chandler, David Manners, Dwight Frye, Edward Van Sloan, Herbert Bunston, Frances Dade, Joan Standing

Basada más en la popularísima obra de teatro inspirada en la novela de Stoker que en el propio libro, es una de las películas de vampiros más populares de la historia, pese a no ser una de las mejores, ni siquiera dentro del cine de de Tod Browning. Lo que sí resulta indiscutible es el extraño carisma de Bela Lugosi como vampiro seductor e hipnótico, dejando atrás el monstruoso aspecto del conde Orlock. La película le convirtió en una estrella casi por casualidad (el Drácula previsto inicialmente era Lon Chaney, que murió antes de comenzar el rodaje) y marcó irremisiblemente su carrera.

Sin embargo, 'Drácula' está muy afectada por sus orígenes teatrales y paradójicamente, discurre de forma más agarrotada que 'Nosferatu', con pocos escenarios y personajes esquemáticos que suman en uno solo varios de la fuente original. La versión con actores españoles dirigida por George Melford con Carlos Villarías haciendo de Drácula es muy superior, aunque la de Browning posee momentos maravillosamente icónicos, como la presencia de las tres novias o frases ya históricas como "Yo nunca bebo... vino".

Crítica en Espinof: Drácula

Drácula (Horror of Dracula, 1958)

Dirección: Terence Fisher

Reparto: Christopher Lee, Peter Cushing, Michael Gough, Melissa Stribling, Valerie Gaunt, Carol Marsh, Olga Dickie

Pese a que en su día llegó a considerarse una afrenta a la fuente literaria original por sus elevadísimas dosis de violencia y erotismo, nunca antes vistas en pantalla, lo cierto es que el primer Drácula de la Hammer, a diferencia de la también extraordinaria 'La maldición de Frankenstein' de 1957, que se distancia notoriamente de la novela de Mary Shelley, es la encarnación del vampiro de Stoker más fidedigna hasta ese momento. Sobre todo, gracias a la imponente presencia de Chritopher Lee, a la vez un monstruo seductor y un magnético gentleman.

Espléndidamente dirigida por Terence Fisher, con una puesta en escena que hacía que cada rincón del escenario, cada objeto y cada gesto rezumara extrañeza y horror puro, 'Drácula' reconvirtió de nuevo a los vampiros en monstruos, dejando atrás la galantería entre ataúdes. La Hammer rubricaría ocho secuelas directas de Drácula, algunas tan recomendabilísimas como esta primera entrega. Entre ellas cabe destacar 'Las novias de Drácula', 'Drácula, Príncipe de las Tinieblas', 'Los ritos satánicos de Drácula' o la sorprendentemente jugosa 'Drácula 73'

Crítica en Espinof: Drácula

Las novias de Drácula (The Brides of Dracula, 1960)

Dirección: Terence Fisher

Reparto: Peter Cushing, Yvonne Monlaur, David Peel, Martita Hunt, Freda Jackson, Miles Malleson, Andree Melly

Aunque todos recordemos a Christopher Lee como, posiblemente, el mejor Drácula de todos los tiempos, conviene tener claro que la Hammer le hincó el diente al terror vampírico con muchas otras películas del subgénero. Algunas de ellas tan interesantes como las protagonizadas por Lee, como ésta, dirigida también por Terence Fisher, de nuevo con Peter Cushing como Van Helsing, pero con un nuevo catador de sangre (generado, eso sí, por el propio Drácula en persona): el barón Meinster.

La película rebosa momentos impagables, desde la merecidamente mítica secuencia del molino formando una cruz con las aspas a todos los diálogos de la madre del barón, pasando por la fetida resurrección -impresionante para una película de 1960- de una de las novias. Los interesados en la mitología vampírica de la Hammer más allá del Drácula de Lee harán bien en sumergirse en todas las inspiradas por la 'Carmilla' de Le Fanu (menos sofisticadas visualmente que esta, pero muy jugosas, como 'La condesa Drácula' o 'Drácula y las mellizas') o la chifladura total de la Hammer tardía, como 'Capitán Kronos, cazador de vampiros' o 'Kung Fu contra los Siete vampiros de oro'

El último hombre sobre la Tierra (The Last Man on Earth, 1964)

Dirección: Sidney Salkow, Ubaldo Ragona

Reparto: Vincent Price, Franca Bettoia, Emma Danieli, Giacomo Rossi-Stuart, Christi Courtland

Aunque la novela original de Richard Matheson (aquí coadaptándola en el guión) es una de las grandes inspiraciones de 'La noche de los muertos vivientes' de George A. Romero, es sencillo identificar a las criaturas post-apocalípticas que han dejado el planeta hecho un solar con vampiros: descansan durante el día, horas que nuestro protagonista aprovecha para masacrarlos -una idea que después saquearía 'Vampiros de John Carpenter'-. El resto del tiempo, un Vincent Price de perfecta pose melancólica, se lamenta sobre su solitaria situación.

La película sería reformulada en una producción más ambiciosa y taquillera protagonizada por Will Smith en 2007, y que acentuaría el componente vampírico y monstruoso de los seres que deambulan por el planeta. Pero carece de la atmósfera oscura y minimalista que han acabado convirtiendo a esta película coproducida con Italia (ese enrarecido aire europeo le da buena parte de su encanto) en una extraña rareza del cine de vampiros.

El baile de los vampiros (The Fearless Vampire Killers, 1967)

Dirección: Roman Polanski

Reparto: Jack MacGowran, Roman Polanski, Sharon Tate, Alfie Bass, Ferdy Mayne, Jessie Robins, Iain Quarrier

Una singularísima comedia slapstick de ambiente vampírico, tan tontorrona como tronchante, que funciona y es recordada porque se toma muy en serio su parte terrorífica. Ésta, claramente inspirada en las entonces boyantes producciones de la Hammer, aún en su fase más clásica. Prácticamente muda, es también recordada por presentar uno de los escasos papeles coprotagonistas de Sharon Tate antes de ser asesinada por el clan Manson.

La película deja claro en todo momento que Polanski es un auténtico devoto del cine de terror y sus tropos, con su versión tronada de la primera y magistral mitad de la novela de 'Drácula' y la visita de Jonathan Harker al castillo del vampiro. Lo que también deja claro, y es una pena que Polanski no lo cultivara más a menudo, es que el humor blanco y visual (a años luz de la retorcida paranoia bufa de 'El quimérico inquilino') también se le daba francamente bien.

Crítica en Espinof: El baile de los vampiros

Las vampiras (Vampyros Lesbos, 1971)

Dirección: Jess Franco

Reparto: Soledad Miranda, Dennis Price, Victor Feldman, Ewa Stroemberg, Paul Muller, Jesús Franco, Heidrun Kussin

El inclasificable Jesús Franco volvió al mito vampírico una y otra vez a lo largo de su carrera: de la rara rigidez de 'El conde Drácula' a la chifladura de tebeo de 'Drácula contra Frankenstein', pasando por este exploit erótico que toma por asalto la cinefilia galopante de su responsable para subvertir los códigos del vampirismo lésbico que habían puesto de moda las producciones tardías de la Hammer, aunque apretando las tuercas de la explicitud visual.

Franco se salta los tópicos del cine vampírico que no le interesan (la siempre memorable Soledad Miranda es una vampira que toma el sol), hace suyos otros (solo bebe sangre de mujeres) y dinamita el resto, como todo lo que concierne al cazador de vampiros. Aquí el castillo es un chalet y la banda sonora no tiene órganos de iglesia tenebrosos, sino que está construida con un cálido e hipnótico jazz. Como todo Franco, único y particular, y aún así, una de las películas de eurohorror vampírico más notorias.

El rojo en los labios (Les lèvres rouges, 1971)

Dirección: Harry Kümel

Reparto: John Karlen, Delphine Seyrig, Danielle Ouimet, Andrea Rau, Paul Esser, Georges Janin, Joris Collet, Fons Rademakers

Una de las películas más singulares de toda la era del eurohorror de los setenta, en el momento álgido de la exitosa fórmula de la Hammer de saquear 'Carmilla' para adaptar el mito vampírico a los nuevos tiempos, así como en su replanteamiento por parte de productores españoles, franceses y alemanes a golpe de morbo, delirio onírico y erotismo desbocado. En este caso se recurre a la condesa Bathory y su sirvienta, alojadas en un hotel de Brujas a donde llega la pareja protagonista: él quiere presentar a su prometida a su madre.

Con los potenciómetros psicosexuales al once (o más), esta coproducción francobelga y alemana mezcla elementos de giallo y del cine de explotación de la época. Kümel (que pronto dirigiría su estupenda adaptación de 'Malpertius') configuró a su vampiresa (Delphine Seyrig) con elementos de actrices de cine clásico como Marlene Dietrich (y a la sirvienta como Louise Brooks). También le inyectó ciertos aires estéticos propios de los uniformes del nazismo, ya que con ese toque autoritario es como Kümel veía a los míticos chupadores de sangre.

Réquiem por un vampiro (Vierges et vampires, 1973)

Dirección: Jean Rollin

Reparto: Marie-Pierre Castel, Mireille Dargent, Philippe Gasté, Dominique, Louise Dhour, Michel Delesalle

Rollin, capaz de desatar odios furibundos y devoción sin límite, conforma una pieza imprescindible del sinuoso e hipererótico euro-horror de los setenta. Sus historias, cortadas en su mayoría por el mismo patrón de ninfas bebedoras de sangre, más inspiradas en 'Carmilla' que en 'Drácula', son variaciones levísimas a una misma idea que flota en un mundo en el que todo es estética, tules, niebla y castillos en descampados.

Podría haber traído a esta lista las también fabulosas 'La muerta viviente', 'El castillo de las vampiras', 'La violación de la vampira', 'La vampiresa desnuda' o 'El amanecer de los vampiros', pero me quedo con esta pieza extrañísima, prácticamente muda, que se adelanta al mismísimo Tarantino con su historia de dos atracadoras accidentadas que acaban dando tumbos por un castillo misterioso. Influída más que otras de sus películas por la nouvelle vague y por el cómic erótico europeo, 'Requiem por un vampiro' es Rollin puro, y como tal, tan discutible como fascinante.

Sangre para Drácula (Dracula cerca sangue di vergine... e morì di sete!!!, 1974)

Dirección: Paul Morrissey

Reparto: Joe Dallesandro, Udo Kier, Arno Juerging, Maxime McKendry, Milena Vukotic, Dominique Darel, Stefania Casini

Un rarísimo experimento producido por Andy Warhol rebosante de comedia bufa, drama folletinesco, erotismo mediterráneo y terror ultrasangriento cuyo argumento parece salido de una película de Jaimito: Drácula (Udo Kier) necesita vírgenes para alimentarse, y viaja hasta Italia ya que, siendo éste un país tradicionalmente católico, allí habrá más doncellas puras. Por supuesto, aunque divisa a unas cuantas víctimas, ninguna es tan virtuosa como aparenta.

El resultado de esta locura es inusualmente amargo, mucho más que la otra producción Warhol con la que conformó un programa doble delirante, la salvaje y mucho más exploit 'Carne para Frankenstein'. Kier le otorga al conde una melancolía única, atormentado porque los nuevos tiempos y la existencia de galanes como el interpretado por Joe Dallessandro (decidido a acabar con el vampirismo saltando de cama en cama) van a acabar con su vida eterna. Un tema muy propio de los Dráculas modernos (la decadencia del galán depredador clásico, completamente fuera de su tiempo), aquí en una versión más carnal y excesiva que nunca.

Las hijas de Drácula (Vampyres, 1974)

Dirección: José Ramón Larraz

Reparto: Marianne Morris, Anulka Dziubinska, Murray Brown, Brian Deacon, Sally Faulkner, Michael Byrne, Karl Lanchbury

Aunque su erotismo tramontano la ha convertido en una pieza algo caduca (al contrario que la monumental 'Los ritos sexuales del diablo', también de Larraz, aún más marrana pero tremendamente perversa), 'Las hijas de Drácula' sigue siendo una pieza clave del cine vampírico europeo de los setenta. Producida en Inglaterra, el buen pulso de Larraz (que rubricaba estas cosas igual que slashers como 'Descanse en piezas' o 'Al filo del hacha', por no hablar de cosas tan de su momento como 'Violación... ¿y?' o 'Polvos mágicos') y su valentía la hora de enhebrar una atmósfera casi de película de casas encantadas le dan un valor único.

En este caso, el argumento es más tradicional que el de otras películas de la época como 'El rojo en los labios': dos vampiresas provocan accidentes cerca de la mansión en donde viven y mantienen grogui a una de sus víctimas para alimentarse de él. Pero los excesos sanguinolentos, brutales incluso para la época, la puesta en escena histérica y los amasijos de gente en pelotas que corretea por delante de la cámara la hacen destacar sobre otras de la época. Objeto de un reciente, mucho más pulcro y decididamente inferior remake en 2015. Con Fele Martínez.

Martin (1978)

Dirección: George A. Romero

Reparto: John Amplas, Lincoln Maazel, Christine Forrest, Elyane Nadeau, Sara Venable, Francine Middleton, Roger Caine

Una singularísima exploración de la naturaleza de lo monstruoso a manos de un George A. Romero aún ajeno al bombazo internacional que supondría su 'Zombi' ese mismo año. Aquí cuenta la historia de un joven que cree ser un vampiro y se comporta como tal, aunque ni tiene colmillos afilados ni se desintegra con la luz del sol. Pero aún así quiere alimentarse de sangre y está dispuesto a efectuar todos los cortes en cuellos ajenos que sea necesario para conseguirlo.

Este argumento podría pertenecer perfectamente a una comedia negra paródica (como lo sería en parte la posterior 'Besos de vampiro'), pero Romero lo usa para sumergirse en un ambiente opresivo, tan perturbador como la mente de su protagonista. El director consigue inyectar una atmósfera de genuino cine vampírico en una historia que repite constantemente al espectador que no lo es, conduciendo al desconcierto y a una sensación de paranoia constante. Una obra maestra del primer Romero que solo recientemente ha empezando a ganarse una justa consideración de culto.

Nosferatu, vampiro de la noche (Nosferatu: Phantom der Nacht, 1979)

Dirección: Werner Herzog

Reparto: Klaus Kinski, Isabelle Adjani, Bruno Ganz, Jacques Dufilho, Roland Topor, Walter Ladengast, Dan van Husen

El remake de la mítica película muda de Murnau consigue no solo mantener bien el tipo como réplica, sino reformular su logro más complicado: esa indescriptible atmósfera alucinada, como de pesadilla. Herzog llega a ella gracias a las hipnóticas interpretaciones de su trío protagonista: Kinski, por supuesto, con su físico alucinante y su comportamiento enajenado; pero también una Isabelle Adjani que parece con un constante pie en el otro barrio y Bruno Ganz como uno de los Jonathan Harker más frágiles y aterradores de la historia.

Herzog sabe extraer de la novela de Stoker y la película de Murnau los elementos que convierten esta película en una observación sobre las terribles implicaciones de la muerte: el dolor, el olvido y la soledad. Por eso recupera una de las ideas más sugestivas y menos tratadas de adaptaciones previas (ni Universal ni Hammer le prestaron atención, por ejemplo): el vampiro como una plaga infecciosa milenaria que va dejando un reguero de cadáveres apestados allá por donde pasa.

El misterio de Salem's Lot (1979)

Dirección: Tobe Hooper

Reparto: David Soul, James Mason, Lance Kerwin, Bonnie Bedelia, Lew Ayres, Reggie Nalder, Ed Flanders, Elisha Cook Jr.

De acuerdo, es una miniserie para televisión pero la insertamos aquí por haber recibido edición en formato largometraje (en España, bajo el ridículo titulo de 'Phantasma II') y por su extraordinaria calidad pese a las limitaciones catódicas. Adapta una de las mejores novelas de Stephen King y marcó a incontables niños de los ochenta en su pase por Televisión Española, hasta tal punto que para una generación, la imagen del niño vampiro arañando la ventana de su hermano es de las que traumatizan una infancia.

Su mezcla de transformación de los vampiros clásicos (tirando, curiosamente, de la iconografía del más clásico de todos, Nosferatu) con el respeto a la mitología del género (se siguen todas las reglas: la invitación a casa, la estaca, los cazadores, los ataúdes...) da como fruto una película inquietante y de atmósfera espesa, que entiende las grandes virtudes de la novela de King y sabe traducirlas a imágenes. Un clásico menor, pero revisable una y otra vez. Mucho ojo con 'Salem's Lot II', la extrañísima y también muy opresiva secuela, dirigida por Larry Cohen y con Sam Fuller como implacable cazador de vampiros.

Drácula (1979)

Dirección: John Badham

Reparto: Frank Langella, Kate Nelligan, Laurence Olivier, Donald Pleasence, Trevor Eve, Jan Francis

Junto a la estupenda TV-movie dirigida por Dan Curtis, escrita por Richard Matheson y protagonizada por Jack Palance de 1973, esta es la película que configuró al Drácula moderno inyectándole grandes dosis de romanticismo fatalista. En ambas producciones, Drácula se encapricha de una humana (algo nunca del todo bien explicado en la novela) porque es una reencarnación de su amada de tiempos remotos. La versión de Palance (que, por cierto, inspiró físicamente al mítico vampiro de los cómics de Marvel 'La tumba de Dracula), además, incluyó el elemento de Vlad el Empalador por primera vez.

La versión de John Badham de 1979, en cualquier caso, es mucho más ostentosa, con un enfrentamiento que es pura intensidad y miradas que detienen el tráfico entre Frank Langella y Laurence Olivier. Quizás la película, la más romántica de todas las adaptaciones de Drácula, renquea algo porque a Langella le falta visceralidad, pero lo cierto es que adapta por primera vez pasajes de la novela que hasta el momento permanecían inéditos. Lo peor: su existencia frustró una proyectada adaptación de Ken Russell que, desde luego, habría sido para verla.

Crítica en Espinof: Drácula

El ansia (1983)

Dirección: Tony Scott

Reparto: Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie, Susan Sarandon, Cliff De Young, Willem Dafoe, Beth Ehlers, Dan Hedaya

La primera gran película de vampiros de los ochenta es un giro radical y punk de la aún reciente Drácula de Badham: a ritmo de Bauhaus y su significativa declaración de intenciones 'Bela Lugosi's dead', describe un hiperestético, sensorial y videoclipero triángulo amoroso entre (poca broma) Catherine Deneuve, David Bowie y Susan Sarandon, en el que fue el debut de Tony Scott -para muchos insuperado-.

Recuperando las connotaciones lésbicas del vampirismo a lo Hammer (que se asienta de la misma esencia del género: la 'Carmilla' de Le Fanu que inspiró el 'Drácula' de Stoker) y planteando a los vampiros no como seres tragicos y atormentados sino como adictos a una droga que ni les mata del todo ni les deja morir, 'El ansia' se revela como una de las películas de chupasangres más influyentes de las últimas décadas. Son incontables las películas que han bebido de ella en lo temático o estético.

Crítica en Espinof: 'El ansia'

Noche de miedo (1985)

Dirección: Tom Holland

Reparto: Chris Sarandon, William Ragsdale, Amanda Bearse, Roddy McDowall, Stephen Geoffreys, Jonathan Stark

Una de esas mezclas mágicas de comedia y terror que conseguían funcionar perfectamente en los ochenta en ambos campos sin necesidad de caer en la parodia o en el desequilibrio de tono. En este caso lo consigue gracias a un catálogo de personajes entrañables que protagonizan la historia de un chaval que descubre que su vecino es un vampiro que además quiere seducir a su madre. Todo ello gracias a la excelente capacidad de Tom Holland ('Muñeco diabólico', 'Maleficio') para tomarse en serio los planteamientos más desnortados.

Lo consigue además apoyado en un excelente reparto, donde destacan un seductor y grimoso Chris Sarandon como vecino vampiro y un entrañable Roddy McDowall como falso cazavampiros, que usa toda la sabiduría de la cultura pop para acabar con la amenaza. Disfrutó de un estupendo remake en 2011 a la altura de su modelo, con estupendos efectos y ambientación, y Colin Farrell y David Tennant dando perfectamente la réplica a sus precedentes de los ochenta.

Jóvenes ocultos (The Lost Boys, 1987)

Dirección: Joel Schumacher

Reparto: Kiefer Sutherland, Jason Patric, Corey Haim, Corey Feldman, Jami Gertz, Dianne Wiest

Programa doble perfecto con 'Noche de miedo', ya que tiene una buena cantidad de elementos en común: mezcla de horror vampírico y comedia teen, ambiente contemporáneo y algún detalle de guión muy peculiar, como el empleo de la cultura pop como fuente de sabiduría cazavampiros (aquí personificada en un par de devotos de los tebeos de miedo, Corey Feldman y Corey Haim). Pero además, 'Jóvenes ocultos', como no podía ser de otro modo estando dirigida por Joel Schumacher, lleva al límite el homoerotismo y el delirio estético.

De ahí la idea de convertir a los vampiros en moteros (grandioso Kiefer Sutherland como chupasangres que, además, no teme cargar las tintas en lo monstruoso), con toda la estética de cuero y pandillas correspondiente y que, de algún modo, entabla un curioso diálogo posmoderno con la idea del galán a lo Bertín Osborne de 'Noche de miedo'. Fabulosos momentos de impacto y un malvado subtexto anti-establishment adulto por la vía de las citas a 'Peter Pan', para uno de los clásicos impepinables del género en los ochenta.

Los viajeros de la noche (Near Dark, 1987)

Dirección: Kathryn Bigelow

Reparto: Adrian Pasdar, Jenny Wright, Lance Henriksen, Bill Paxton, Jenette Goldstein, Joshua Miller

Una de las mejores películas de vampiros de los ochenta, coincidente en el tiempo y en algunas de sus propuestas con 'Jóvenes ocultos', pero llevándola un paso más allá. La estética de motero salvaje, al margen de la ley, que proponía la película de Schumacher, encuentra en este trallazo de la gran Kathryn Bigelow (y el no menos grande Eric Red coescribiendo el guión) su auténtica naturaleza: como road movie desértica. Cómo compagina Bigelow la fobia al sol de los vampiros con la luz abrasadora de los áridos parajes del sur de Estados Unidos es una de las muchas soluciones ingeniosas de una película que reformula sin miedo la mitología vampírica.

Con interpretaciones espectaculares de Bill Paxton y Lance Henriksen, la película también sirve para desactivar la idea del vampiro como galán que navega en un océano de tiempo y que casi una década antes había propuesto el 'Drácula' de Badham. Aqui hay romance, pero en clave juvenil y pandillera, y cuya gasolina no es una idea romántica y anticuada del amor, sino el sexo, las drogas y el rock. Un western con colmillos que encontaría su réplica una década después con 'Vampiros de John Carpenter'.

Crítica en Espinof: Los viajeros de la noche

Besos de vampiro (Vampire's Kiss, 1989)

Dirección: Robert Bierman

Reparto: Nicolas Cage, Maria Conchita Alonso, Jennifer Beals, Elizabeth Ashley, Kasi Lemmons, Bob Lujan, Jessica Lundy

Una película que se ha ganado su fama de culto por acoger en su seno una de las interpretaciones más enloquecidas de Nicolas Cage. Que ya es decir, pero es que lo de 'Besos de vampiro' es especial: Cage da vida a un agente literario que, tras un encuentro íntimo con una atractiva joven, cree haber sido convertido en un vampiro. Comienza a experimentar fobia a la luz solar y las cruces, se alimenta de cucarachas y se tiene que comprar unos colmillos de plástico porque no hay forma de que le crezcan los auténticos.

Aunque menos opresiva, 'Besos de vampiro' tiene elementos en común con la comentada 'Martin' de George A. Romero: un joven cree que se ha convertido en vampiro y las percepciones del espectador quedan mediatizadas por este estado ilusorio (o no). También con elementos en común con '¿Jo, qué noche!' con la que comparte guionista y que también presenta un descenso dantesco a los infiernos urbanitas, ''Besos de vampiro' tiene mas malicia e inteligencia de lo que parece. Histeria cageniana aparte, es una interesante reflexión sobre la locura y la percepción, usando el mito vampírico como perchero.

Drácula de Bram Stoker (1992)

Dirección: Francis Ford Coppola

Reparto: Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Anthony Hopkins, Keanu Reeves, Richard E. Grant, Cary Elwes, Sadie Frost

No tan innovadora en lo temático como se dijo en su momento (casi todas sus propuestas de fidelidad a la obra original de Bram Stoker están ya en la adaptación de Badham), pero absolutamente cautivadora en lo visual. Un aspecto en el que no ha hecho sino crecer con el paso del tiempo, debido a que llegó en el momento en el que el género fantástico empezaba a ser devorado por el abuso de los efectos digitales (solo un año después llegaría 'Parque Jurásico').

Dejando de lado su romanticismo por momentos algo casposo, la obra de Coppola destaca por su imaginativo empleo de los trucajes físicos y tangibles para crear pesadillas (de juegos con perspectivas a sombras chinescas, pasando por fabulosos maquillajes o trampantojos delirantes). Y también por su variopinto reparto, que va de lo estupendísimo (Gary Oldman, Winona Ryder, Tom Waits) a lo algo menos brillante (Anthony Hopkins), pero que en cualquier caso hacen interesantes aportaciones al canon vampírico.

Crítica en Espinof: Drácula de Bram Stoker

Entrevista con el vampiro (1994)

Dirección: Neil Jordan

Reparto: Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Kirsten Dunst, Antonio Banderas, Christian Slater, Stephen Rea, Indra Ove

En plena fiebre por el vampirismo decimonónico por culpa de Coppola, esta adaptación de una de las novelas más exitosas del género de todos los tiempos -aunque hoy haya quedado un poco desfasada- superó las negras expectativas que tenía en su contra. No solo eso, sino que en muchos sentidos superó al éxito de 'Drácula de Bram Stoker' gracias a la exquisitez de su puesta en escena y a hallazgos como la casi debutante Kirsten Dunst como Claudia, uno de los personajes vampíricos más sugestivos de los noventa.

Hoy resulta difícil entender hasta qué punto la película fue atrevida: Neil Jordan acababa de ganarse un merecido prestigio global con 'Juego de lágrimas' y ahora se volcaba en una de vampiros, Tom Cruise aún estaba considerado un ídolo teen, y Brad Pitt y Antonio Banderas no habían alcanzado su actual estrellato. Por suerte, la extraordinaria calidad de la película, apasionada, retorcida, violentísima y mórbida, se sobrepuso a los negros designios que la amenazaban.

Crítica en Espinof: Entrevista con el vampiro

Nadja (1995)

Dirección: Michael Almereyda

Reparto: Elina Löwensohn, Martin Donovan, Galaxy Craze, Peter Fonda, Jared Harris, Suzy Amis, Karl Geary

Mientras el cine mainstream reformulaba el mito vampírico con películas tan opuestas entre sí como 'Entrevista con el vampiro' o 'Abierto hasta el amanecer', el cine indie le inyectaba mensajes turbios y retranca posmoderna en películas de bajísimo presupuesto y textura blanquinegra como 'The addiction' de Abel Ferrara o esta 'Nadja'. La primera es casi un tratado filosófico sobre la fe y la culpa muy propio de Ferrara, pero camuflado de película de vampiros. La de Almereyda es un divertidísimo pastiche con colmillos y el beneplácito de David Lynch (cameo incluido).

El enfrentamiento en territorio urbano entre Van Helsing (un Peter Fonda delicioso) y Nadja, la hija del conde Voivoide Arminius Chousescu Dracula, con sus buenas raciones de erotismo lésbico y reformulación de los tópicos del género, tiene mucho de parodia. Pero cuando mejor funciona la película es al adoptar una rarísima solemnidad subrayada por su estética tenebrosa y la música de My Bloody Valentine o Portishead y que delata que Almereyda es tan devoto de Hal Hartley como de Udo Kier. Una rareza que el tiempo no ha hecho sino revalorizar.

Abierto hasta el amanecer (1996)

Dirección: Robert Rodríguez

Reparto: George Clooney, Harvey Keitel, Juliette Lewis, Quentin Tarantino, Salma Hayek, Fred Williamson, Cheech Marin

La revelación internacional de Robert Rodríguez llegó en un momento irrepetible: Tarantino aún estaba cimentando su popularidad, George Clooney solo era conocido por 'Urgencias' y en tiempos pre-Internet se obró el milagro de que muchos espectadores llegaron al cine pensando que iban a ver una de gángsters. Y en cierto sentido, es una de gánsters que se tuerce: con dos mitades perfectamente separadas, esta bronca fiesta vampírica funciona como thriller -Tarantino y Clooney secuestran a una familia con miembros como un Harvey Keitel tronchante y una Juliette Lewis desatada- y también como película de vampiros y acción, anticipándose levemente a 'Blade'.

Un reparto entonadísimo (a todos los anteriores se unen Salma Hayek y una deliciosa ralea de secundarios como Cheech Marin, el mago de los efectos Tom Savini y el dios de la blaxploitation Fred Williamson), sumado a una violencia de tebeo como nunca antes se había visto en pantalla, dan pie a una de las producciones vampíricas más frenéticas de todos los tiempos, una que convierte los excesos de los ochenta en antiguallas artríticas. Frenética y bienhumorada, consigue hasta resultar innovadora a golpe de detalles latinos inyectados en la mitología vampírica.

Brácula: Condemor II (1997)

Dirección: Álvaro Sáenz de Heredia

Reparto: Chiquito de la Calzada, Bigote Arrocet, Nadiuska, Javivi, Carla Hidalgo, Héctor Cantolla, Rubén Gálvez, Aramis Ney

Desde luego, no es la más sofisticada de las películas vampíricas de esta lista (ni siquiera la más original: casi todos sus hallazgos están en 'El baile de los vampiros'), pero indiscutiblemente sí una de las más personales. La arrolladora personalidad de Chiquito de la Calzada se apropia del mito de Drácula hasta tal punto que solo cambiando una letra de su nombre, la B de Barbate, transforma una parodia del cine de terror de raíz hispánica en una farsa chiquitistaní que tiene el consabido efecto vírico-verbal en el espectador.

Es curioso cómo Drácula se convirtió en objeto paródico para el cine español de éxito, no solo -lógicamente- en los setenta, cuando el cine de terror "serio" triunfaba en España, sino años después con películas como ésta, 'Buenas noches, señor monstruo' o 'Aquí huele a muerto'. Lo que deja bien claro que junto al western mediterráneo (al que Chiquito ya le dio la suyo en la algo menos divertida 'Aquí llega Condemor, el pecador de la pradera'), el terror vampírico es un género tan español como las tonadillas pachangueras que aquí son parodiadas con letras chupasangres.

Vampiros de John Carpenter (1998)

Dirección: John Carpenter

Reparto: James Woods, Daniel Baldwin, Sheryl Lee, Thomas Ian Griffith, Maximilian Schell, Tim Guinee

Pese a algún problema puntual (caída de ritmo en su tramo final, un Baldwin inapropiadísimo como coprotagonista...), la virulencia y descaro de esta apropiación de John Carpenter de los códigos vampíricos (una de las escasísimas veces que ha partido de monstruos clásicos para sostener una de sus películas) la convierten en una auténtica rareza. Bola extra por hacerlo, además, en una época tan relamida como fue la década de los noventa.

Aquí, James Woods y Daniel Baldwin comandan a un grupo de cazadores de vampiros a sueldo del Vaticano que no se andan con tonterías: lejos de la sutileza de Van Helsing, entran en las guaridas de vampiros y los sacan a estacazos y con la ayuda de cables de tracción a la luz del sol, como vemos en una impresionante escena inicial que ha pasado con todo derecho a lo mejor del subgénero vampírico moderno. Por desgracia, el resto de la película no mantiene ese soberbio nivel, pero aún así, este western con colmillos es una pieza digna de revisión.

Crítica en Espinof: Vampiros de John Carpenter

Blade (1998)

Dirección: Stephen Norrington

Reparto: Wesley Snipes, Stephen Dorff, Kris Kristofferson, Sanaa Lathan, Donal Logue, Traci Lords, Udo Kier

Una de las mejores adaptaciones de un cómic Marvel en una época en la que eso no quería decir absolutamente nada, y que mezcló acción y terror con una sencillez y contundencia que hizo que muchos se preguntaran cómo no se había hecho antes (sí se había hecho, y muy bien, en 'Kung Fu contra los siete vampiros de oro'). Reformulando el mito vampírico con más sutileza de lo que parece (el héroe es un vampiro renegado, las duchas de sangre, el vampirismo como plaga desde las clases dominantes), revitalizando la estética blaxploitation e incluso adelantándose un año a 'Matrix', el impacto de Blade -pese a no ser precisamente una película de prestigio- es indiscutible.

Unos años después llegaría la muy estimable 'Blade II', irregular pero, con todo, quizás la mejor de las películas "comerciales" de Guillermo del Toro, con criaturas y conceptos interesantísimos (como siempre en Del Toro, acerca de la monstruosidad y su esencia) pero horrendos efectos CGI, y abandonando los aires de artes marciales clásicas que hacían especial a la primera entrega. 'Blade III' rubricaría la decadencia de la saga con una entrega horrible, pero para qué lo vamos a negar, también bastante disfrutona.

Crítica en Espinof: Blade

Déjame entrar (Låt den rätte komma in, 2008)

Dirección: Tomas Alfredson

Reparto: Kåre Hedebrant, Lina Leandersson, Per Ragnar, Henrik Dahl, Karin Bergquist, Peter Carlberg

Una de las películas de vampiros más singulares de los últimos tiempos, pese a manejar bazas que ya conocemos: el ambiente gélido, presente en la estimable pero inferior '30 días de oscuridad', el foco en un par de niños y los estallidos de violencia casi insoportable. Tomas Alfredson consigue darle un brío especial a todos estos elementos ya sabidos gracias a su escalofriante, casi inerte sentido del ritmo, para contar la historia de un chaval acosado en la escuela que se hace amigo de una chica de tendencias nocturnas peculiares.

Lo que la hace especial es difícil de describir con palabras, y de hecho, el inevitable remake norteamericano un par de años después, aunque interesante, fue incapaz de retener su magia. Quizás la idea del idilio entre dos niños monstruosos, quizás cómo reformula la figura del vampiro como una sombra trágica y condenada sin caer en tópicos románticos. Quizás el insólito equilibrio entre ternura y retrato de la monstruosidad sin medias tintas. Sea como fuere, una película única.

Crítica en Espinof: Déjame entrar

Sólo los amantes sobreviven (Only Lovers Left Alive, 2013)

Dirección: Jim Jarmusch

Reparto: Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Anton Yelchin, Slimane Dazi, Jeffrey Wright

Una especie de heredera espiritual de 'El ansia' y 'The Addiction', con vampiros enfermizos, sufrientes debido a una vida eterna que implica sobre todo soledad y aburrimiento, y que recupera la estética decadente y postpunk de las criaturas de la noche de los ochenta. Tras un inicio de siglo lleno de brutalidad y contundencia debido al eco del éxito de 'Abierto hasta el amanecer' o 'Blade', Jim Jarmusch parece recordar que los vampiros son perfecto símbolo de la languidez romántica, y nos devuelve esa imagen del vampirismo con una película que parece aislada del tiempo en una burbuja.

Su reparto (Swinton, Hiddleston, Wasikowska, Hurt, Yelchin), increíblemente apropiado, es posiblemente el gran punto fuerte de esta película que difícilmente puede calificarse para todos los gustos, pero que sin duda cautivará a los post-post-post-góticos deseosos de ver a unos cuantos vampiros filosofar sin descanso sobre lo especiales que son y lo estupendamente mal que se encuentran. Entre mordisco y mordisco, claro.

Crítica en Espinof: Sólo los amantes sobreviven

Lo que hacemos en las sombras (What We Do in the Shadows, 2014)

Dirección: Taika Waititi, Jemaine Clement

Reparto: Jemaine Clement, Taika Waititi, Jonathan Brugh, Cori Gonzales-Macuer, Stu Rutherford, Ben Fransham

Aunque es abiertamente una comedia paródica, esta película de un Taika Waititi antes de su salto al mainstream vía Marvel demuestra más conocimiento de las tradiciones vampíricas que muchas películas más solemnes. Su idea de un grupo de vampiros que comparten piso ya es grandiosa, pero se ve reforzada porque cada uno de ellos obedece a un tópico de los bebedores de sangre: el nosferatu hierático, el caballero victoriano, el donjuán nocturno...

La película se ceba en su conflictiva relación con los hombres-lobo, que ya de partida fue ridiculizada en éxitos del humor involuntario como 'Underworld' o 'Crepúsculo'. Todo ello bañado en un tempo cómico personalísimo e infalible, más que puesto a prueba en el anterior proyecto de Waititi y Clement, 'Flight of the Conchords'. Quizás la mejor parodia del fenómeno vampírico, a la altura del baile de Polanski.

Una chica vuelve a casa sola de noche (What We Do in the Shadows, 2014)

Dirección: Ana Lily Amirpour

Reparto: Sheila Vand, Arash Marandi, Dominic Rains, Marshall Manesh, Mozhan Marnò, Milad Eghbali

Con una estética particularísima, pero que a la vez bebe de decenas de fuentes (del spaguetti western a Nadja, pasando por el Lynch de 'Cabeza borradora' o el cine indie de los noventa), esta singular, inclasificable mezcla de película de pandilleros, reflexión sobre el vampirismo y pesadilla rodada con scope estilo western es el sorprendente debut de Ana Lily Amirpour. Cuenta la historia de una vampiresa juvenil que ronda las hiperestéticas calles, casi de tebeo, de una ciudad ficticia iraní.

El gran hallazgo de 'Una chica vuelve a casa sola de noche' es la estética de su vampírica protagonista: el chador como si fuera una capa y la tabla de skate que le permite desplazarse como si flotara son ingeniosas reformulaciones juveniles de los tópicos de los vampiros. Pero Ana Lily Amirpour esconde más sorpresas en la película, y desde la entrañable relación amorosa entre sus dos protagonistas a sus dejes tarantinescos, pasando por el curioso diálogo que establece con la reciente 'Déjame entrar', la convierten en una rarísima pieza del cine de género.

Anecdotes and Observations, Reflections and Critical Remarks* 

March 12th, 1801. — About sixteen years ago, a relation (who I think had a daughter) of Daniel de Foe, the author of Crusoe, lived in Broker Row, Moorfields. He was an old man, and kept a small shoemaker's shop, and had done many years; but I am not quite sure that the relationship was on his side; it might be on his wife's.

The notices commonly put upon walls, for bill-stickers to read and tremble, are generally worded with a threat of their being prosecuted, &c. I noticed a board affixed to the Tabernacle of G. Whitfield, [1]  worded thus — 'Please to take notice, if any Bills are put against this building, they will immediately be taken down.'

————

Providence has a very difficult task to please the creature MAN; the latter neglects his proper avocation, Agriculture, to go in search of black eyes and bloody noses, commonly called military glory, and then blames his Maker for not sending him a proper supply of food. — Publican's Newspaper. [2] 

————

I think a small kind of carriage to hold one person might be made to go on the ice with great velocity, if the whole strength of the rider could be exerted for that purpose. By the help of a sharp spike, or a pole with three or more spikes, to strike or lay hold on the ice, a great weight might be put in motion. Perhaps some such childish contrivance as this may be in use, though unknown to me. I should like to try it, and convince myself of its practicability. As to the material point, guiding the carriage, I can conceive no method; I like to see skaiting, and I should like to see this. Such a light thing on wheels might be tried on land; but I doubt the labour would be too much. This nonsense makes me think (as indeed I have always done) what a pleasure it must be, to be able to draw.

————

I never see a fine prospect but I wish to bring it away with me. The house and grounds at Wakefield, I have in the storehouse of memory; but I should like to have them on paper. I should extremely like to have a view of Honington Green, as it was till the Inclosing Act took place. Wakefield I may (though unlikely) see again; but my native Green, with its daisies, I never shall. To take such a small bit of ground and divide it into three, was hardly worth while. What man, with a sack of wheat on his back, would stoop for one grain?

Inclosing Acts! I do not much like the rage for them. They cut down the solemn, the venerable tree, and sometimes plant another, — not always; like a mercenary soldier, who kills more than he begets. Resolved — As shepherds are thus going out of fashion, and smiths, &c., coming in: could I not make the old steeple lament the destruction of shades as old as itself, and make a shepherd reply? &c. &c. But it grows near 'witching time of night,' and I perceive I am writing nonsense. If I had had a critic here at my elbow, he would have found it out long ago.

Remarks on the Garden Spider.

August 14, 1801. — This morning observed a garden spider, who had one of his own species in durance, holding him suspended, but without much appearance of a web. The prisoner was alive, but a mere skeleton. After a while he was suffered to fall, or the wind forced him from his captivity; but, in falling, he unfortunately struck against a half-formed web, the architect of which I had just been watching, and observed, that all the lines leading from the centre to the extremities were finished; and he was busy, going a continued circle, and joining each with a fresh web, which he drew from his posteriors, at regular strokes, by an extension of his longest legs behind. The beforementioned prisoner fell against his web, and he immediately left work to secure him, being still alive, and having legs not at all diminished, though his body was wasted. His new conqueror seized him, and, rolling him up in a strong web, dragged him to the centre, and there left him secure, and returned to his work, which he soon completed. I had observed him about a quarter of an hour previous to this adventure, and remarked that he caught a number of very small flies, which abounded on every weed, after much rain in the night; and I was not a little surprised that these minute creatures did not stop his progress, but were instantly devoured; not as I expected, by sucking their bodies dry: he took them up very orderly, and very distinctly, and devoured them, wings and all, without leaving the smallest appearance of a fragment. He had eaten seven of these flies before the spider fell in his way.

August 20, 1801. — A spider of this kind, of an enormous size, has now a web, of about a foot in diameter, hung with spoils, against a wooden fence in the yard. I have repeatedly seen them working their webs, but never could see them begin. The insect, here mentioned, has attached his work on one side to the fence, from which it projects obliquely, and is suspended to a branch of a vine, at the distance of five feet from the circle of the web. As the suspending lines are very strong, and run exactly horizontally, without any intermediate support, it is wonderful to me, to think how they could have been carried so far. A double five foot line, which leaves the fence in this direction, must have been a curious work for him.

In the outline here given, the upper sketch is looking down on the work; the under one is looking horizontally.

The body of the spider being nearly half an inch in length, he has more than twenty-four times his length in one foot, and, consequently, one hundred and twenty times in his suspending lines. Now, taking the standard of a man at five feet six inches, one hundred and twenty times his length, will be six hundred and sixty feet, or two hundred and twenty yards; about three times the height of the Monument. [3]  If we were set to tie the tops of the steeples of London together with a cord, without scaffolding, should not we be puzzled to contrive it? We should go to school to spiders, and ants, and bees; but of all these — the spider does his work alone.

September 9, 1801. — This morning, extricated a bee from a web, but without any signs of life. Another web contained a bee larger than the common honey bee; he appeared completely enveloped in a winding-sheet of the web, of a very large spider, whose premises he had unfortunately trespassed upon. Thus it is evident that this tiger of an insect devours creatures larger than itself. If the means by which he is enabled to do so were common to the beasts of the forest, how dreadful would be a net spun by the lion or the tiger, from which the horse and his rider could not disentangle themselves, no more than a strong bee can from this pest of the garden.

September 14th, 1801. — Having expressed surprise at the work of a spider, I can now trace with certainty his operations and his power, so as to satisfy myself entirely. Often wondering how came all the long; webs that tickle our noses and glitter in the sun, reaching from one tree to another, and often floating loose in the air; I, a few days past, broke down the web of a garden spider, which was suspended from a building to a fence across a pathway of about five feet, and much the same height from the ground. When his suspending lines were broke, himself and his web fell flat against the building. An hour or two after, I observed him in motion, and wished to know how he would contrive a communication with the fence as before.

He seemed, for a while, as if taking a general survey of the distance and bearings of the objects around; and then letting himself down from a spout to the distance of about six inches, hung suspended, not in their usual position, head downwards, but with one side downwards, and all his legs greatly extended. In this posture I found that, without the help of his legs, he possessed a power of ejecting a web to what length he pleased, and with surprising swiftness. It had exactly the appearance of smoke issuing through a pin hole; only, in this case, the stream instead of dissipating, became a lengthening line, that floated with the action of the wind, and visibly extended from its source, as fast, or faster than the nimblest black beetle can run. He emitted thus, about seven or eight feet of web, and then ascended to the spout, and waited the event. The line was carried by the wind cornerways, and lodged against the building, and consequently became useless. He did the same again, with the same want of success, and repeated his work a fourth time, when I caught hold of his floating line, at about four feet long, and when extended to five, I drew it over the leaf of a bean, and it became fast; but he, still lengthening it, the line was very slack. After a few minutes he applied himself to drawing the rope tight, which, when done, he travelled upon it to the opposite side, and made my fastening secure; then back again, emitting a new web as he went, and joining it to the other to strengthen it, till it became visibly improved.

Next, starting from one end, he proceeded, without splicing a new strengthener, to the centre of the horizontal line, exactly to the centre, and there lowered himself down to the ground, and drew this perpendicular line very tight, or else it was his weight that did it. The ground beneath was a gravel path; he there fastened this line to the gravel, at E (see sketch), by pressing it down with a motion peculiar to themselves, and then ascended again: at which time he had formed an obtuse angle, by drawing down the horizontal line; then, forwarding his work, he drew the line D, to which the lines from the centre were to be fastened. To form the line D, he traversed the lines B C, bearing the line D in his claw detached, and, fastening it at the upper end of B, proceeded to draw the lines from A to C and B in the same manner. From this outline, the formation of the lines from the centre to the extremities appeared easy.

I have sometimes broken down a part of their work, and have observed that they will carefully gather up the fragments of the web, and either leave it in white knots, or appear entirely to swallow it.

A small spider had fastened a line of his work, to the outermost lines of a web, belonging to a very large one; the latter hastened to the confines of his premises, and cut asunder the stranger's holdfast, something like cutting a boat adrift. I find it a common opinion, that the spider, when he catches a fly, destroys him by poison; it may be so; — but I see, by close observation, that his strong dependence is placed in folding him rapidly up in a web, which he draws from himself abundantly for the purpose.

————

I wonder whether I shall hereafter think these moments mispent in watching a spider? — At present I think their nature and properties strange, and not yet entirely known, even to naturalists; their whole proceedings amazingly curious; their degree of instinctive contrivance, and their exactness of figure in their squares and angles, and visible use of every line, truly astonishing.

The spider, while descending by his web, was baited by the flies, in the same manner as we see a hawk baited by the smaller birds*.

October 4th, 1802. — Found last week a letter in the Gentleman's Magazine for 1759 (I think), by a Mr. Masser, 'on the Gossimer,' [4]  wherein he has been correct in his account of the spider having an ejecting power, as to the formation of his web. I found this by observation last summer, and was pleased at the discovery, for to me it was such. But his account of flying spiders is not clear and comprehensive. Does he mean spiders with wings? or, spiders with a power of unlimited elevation, by an ejectment of web?

* It is now known, that the spider sometimes exhausts the material from which his web is formed; in which case, he is in imminent danger of starvation. I once saw a spider reduced to this extremity, running wildly about on a sunny board. Several large flies, who seemed to enjoy his distress, tormented him, by settling within an inch of his nose; and when the spider made a rush to seize one, he would take a short flight, and settle down again at about the same distance. This game lasted nearly two hours; when the spider's strength and patience appearing to be quite worn out, he retired to a hole. —

Ed. [Note by Joseph Weston, editor of The Remains]

Spiders again.

Proved, by observing a spider with a small microscope, that when I had broken down a web in the garden, he carefully gathered up the fragments, and moistening the accumulated web in its approach to his mouth, swallowed it all again.

General Observations.

In addition to the foregoing extracts, I now wish to say a word or two in farther explanation. The nests of this kind of spider are generally attached fast to woodwork, in a dry situation, in size not exceeding an hazel-nut, appearing like a knot of raw silk, of an exceeding close texture. I put one of these into an unstopped bottle, and, forgetting to watch it minutely, I at length found it as follows: From the mouth of the bottle to a shelf above, was about eighteen inches; and I found the eggs hatched, and not less than several hundreds of connecting lines of communication between the bottle and the shelf, covered in every direction with the infant swarm, entirely yellow. From this I think it evident, that the power of ejecting the web is exercised at an early stage of life. I think too, from every consideration, that their preying on each other is a matter beyond a doubt.

I have somewhere read, that the garden spider uniformly makes his web of great or small dimensions, according to the approaching degree of sunshine or rain, and thus, with the utmost precision, foretels the weather. This I have not yet proved, but am much inclined to give credit to the assertion.

————

Custom not only imposes on us modes of dress, and sometimes of conduct, which our reason does not approve, but prevents us from adopting many a useful practice or improvement. I have read somewhere, of the northern nations, wearing a contrivance of wood, to screen the sight, from the reflection of sunbeams from the snow, which, unobstructed, is injurious to the sight. Custom there, does not forbid them to preserve their eyes; but here, where in the summer months, the sunbeams are reflected from the gravel of the roads, and from the pavement of the streets, in almost an intolerable manner; — where the evil of too much light is evident in every one's face, and every eye is half-closed to exclude it; — where thousands, in their walks of pleasure, would gladly gaze on the distant objects before them — the hills, the villages, and the woods, if the quivering of the sun's rays, and his flood of light would permit them; where thousands (myself amongst them) come home with the anguish and languor of a headach, and with eye-balls parched and painful, from having been forced to meet a light ten times stronger than they could bear; if a person, I say, was to put a crape over his eyes, or any contrivance to remedy the evil, the novelty of his appearance would be a real trouble to him, by subjecting him to the scoffs and insults of fools: and yet the pleasure of walking with ease to one's self, is a thing which no one will contemn, when he consults reason only. The prevalence of too much light is to me a serious evil, and I am convinced is hurtful to the sight. Our mothers tell us not to gaze on the sun, and not to read or work by a bad light, thus warning us that extremes are to be avoided; and our feelings tell us to double our clothes in winter, and to strip in summer; to eat our broth when it is cool enough, and not scald our throats; and many other good things would our feelings tell us, if they were properly attended to.

What a wide difference may be seen between the manner of bringing up children, as to the chance they have of seeing in their youth, what we call the beauties of Nature. If I had been placed in my infancy in the situation of one of the boys who worked in the same garret with me, — had I possessed the power of writing poetry to please the world, — I must have wanted materials at least, to have written what I have. Poor Jem Bailey, was, with four others, left motherless; his father turned them over to the workhouse, situated somewhere in Southwark. When Jem became old enough, he was sent out as errand-boy, to any one who might want such a boy, for which he got nothing but food. He lived with a Doctor, and carried nostrums from morning till night: his master giving him a livery-coat, to raise his own consequence with those he attended. (This was his best coat when he came as an apprentice to the boot-trade.) Another of his masters kept a fishing-tackle shop, in Crooked-lane, and of course part of his trade was to have maggots or gentles to sell to those, who had patience enough to angle in the New River. To obtain this bait, a quantity of bullocks' lights was exposed to the flies on the leads, of the house; and often have I heard the poor boy express the abhorrence he felt, when called from his dinner to serve a ha'p'orth of gentles, which was done by shaking the lights, and picking up the fruit.

Lord Kenyon's [5]  integrity, as stated in the accounts of trials in the newspapers, (for I never saw him), gives me the highest idea of the character of a Judge, which I have ever found. His office, arms him with power: but the exertion of power is marked with the peculiarity of the possessor. The determined and pithy reproofs he gives to notorious guilt, are the most shining examples of honesty to be found in the language.

————

At the time the Albion Mills were burned, [6]  I never saw the newspapers; and led so recluse a life, that three days elapsed before I heard of it, though I lived in Chiswell-street; a proof that there may be now living in Paris, persons, who saw little or nothing of the great events which have taken place there. Again — when five hundred houses were burning at Ratcliffe, [7]  some years ago, I did not know it till the next night! A man's mind may be travelling half over the globe, and yet know little of what is doing next door.

'Full many a gem of purest ray serene,
'The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear.' [8] 

The sovereign contempt with which too many of the wealthy, and (I fear also) of the learned, look upon what are termed 'the dregs of the people,' has often raised an equal contempt on my side, for that wealth, which engenders such thoughts of the immense distance, which those 'dregs are from the surface.' The distance is not so great as the vain man flatters himself it is; I have known mechanics, who in general information, and in powers of intellect, have stood decidedly before thousands of their own rank. Is it not decidedly so among gentlemen — one clever fellow to a great many dull ones? I have heard more sense and truth in a tap-room, than I have sometimes heard in better company; and there is nothing more striking to me, (and I have been placed so as to observe it,) than that total ignorance of the manner of living among the poor — that superficial and vague idea of who and what they are — of what they talk, and of what they think! Nothing to me has appeared more strange or more disgusting, than finding amongst those ranks, raised above the mechanic and labourer, such a mean opinion of the poor! Gentlemen, 'tis true, seldom enter alleys, or see the domestic habits of those nests of human wretchedness: and they think, perhaps, that poverty must of necessity be accompanied with ignorance ; but I find that a man who works for his living, and reads whatever he can catch——————! His whole soul is bent to that point; and if nature has given him a talent for observation, no situation can make him contemptible. If a great and noble mind is granted by nature to only one in a thousand — does she order that that one, shall not be born in an alley? That he must be rich, or great? Does nature, when she makes an orator, provide him a seat in the House of Commons? — A poor man with a strong mind will make himself respected in his circle, and make useful remarks on every occurrence. A rich man, with great native powers, will do the same. A poor man, with a moderate understanding, will remain at the bottom of his class. A rich man of inferior powers will do the same, in spite of all that can be done for him.

'Worth makes the man, and want of it the fellow.' [9]

A short time ago, the publicans' paper, [10]  after stating that the price of corn and flour did not fall in consequence of an abundant harvest, added — 'Let our avaricious tyrants blush! Let them dread the vengeance of parliament! The guardians of the people!' By placing certain words in italics, I suppose it to be wholly ironical; if not, the joke is better still: for what dreadful punishment will a man inflict on himself?

In their paper of to-day they finish a paragraph of the same sort thus:— 'How long these plans of extortion are to continue, Heaven only knows — for to Heaven only can the people look for relief.'

Now by this last sentence, one would think they had found out, that the dealers in corn were not likely to blush, or to tremble; and that many of them were among the guardians of the people.

Walker's Gazetteer [12]  describes Stone-henge, and says that one of the stones measures, according to Doctor Hales, twenty-five feet long, seven feet broad, three and a half feet thick, and says, that no mechanical power now known, could raise such a weight. Guthrie's Grammar, [13]  describes the Pagoda of Chillambrune, near Porto-Nova, on the Coromandal Coast; its entrance beneath a pyramid a hundred and twenty-two feet high, built with large stones above forty feet long, and more than five feet square.

And of the Pagoda of Seringham, the outer wall of which makes a circumference of four miles; its southern gates are supported by pillars composed of single stones, thirty-three feet long, and nearly five in diameter. This wall encloses six others at equal distances, twenty-five feet high, and four thick!*

Dined lately in company with Mr. Peel [15]  and his brother, who have brought the skeleton of the Mammoth from America: both clever fellows, and masters of their study.

Dimensions of the Skeleton now exhibiting in Pall

Mall, November 25, 1802.

Ft. In.
Height over the shoulders 11   0
Length from the chin to the rump 15   0
Width of the hips and body   5   0
Length of the under jaw   2 10
Weight of the same, 63 1/2lbs.
Width of the head   3   2
Length of the thigh bone   3   7
Ditto of the large bone of the fore leg   2 10
Largest circumference of the same   3 2 1/2
Length of shoulder blade   3   1
Longest rib without cartilage   4   7
Length of the tusks, defences, or horns 10   7
Circumference of one tooth or grinder   1 6 1/2
Weight of the same, 4lb. 10 oz.
The whole weighs about 1000 lbs.

This skeleton was dug up almost entire, but the tusks were rotten, so that artificial tusks (made in imitation of a real one, which now lies in the room in a decayed state), are put to this skeleton; but the use of these tusks appears doubtful; and perhaps were not placed as they are here. His teeth, prove most clearly, that he did not feed on vegetable food, and yet his swallow appears much straitened, for so immense a creature.

This skeleton was found lying at the bottom of a bog, several feet from the surface. Parts of the bones of this kind of animal have been found on the banks of the Ohio, and in various other parts of America, to the number, it is supposed, of fifty; so that the animal, though now an extinct race, has been numerous; and as remains of shell-fish are found with the bones, it is conjectured that an inundation destroyed the race, and left us to wonder at what must have lived, though so much larger than any animal now known to exist — not excepting the elephant. Bones of this creature are found vastly much larger than the skeleton. A thigh bone now lies in the room, some inches longer than those in the skeleton, and a tooth of seven pounds weight is now at Philadelphia.

Miss Johnson, with whom I dined at the White Hart Inn, Fetter-lane, was personally acquainted with Burns; who, breakfasting with her, drank a large tumbler of beer previous to taking either eatables or tea, saying that he had been up till three in the morning, and had drank too much wine. On Miss J.'s remonstrating with him as to the injury to which he exposed his health, he replied, 'Madam, they would not thank me for my company, if I did not drink with them. I must give them a slice of my constitution.' I wish Burns had given them thinner slices of his constitution, that it might have lasted longer; [16]  I then might possibly have had the pleasure of seeing him. He died but two months after I began composing The Farmer's Boy! though at that time, and long after, his death and history were unknown to me.

Amongst the glory of England (her unparalleled Charitable Institutions), one more, I think, might be added. A fund to purchase beds for new married couples, under proper regulations, and with the accustomed recommendations as to character, and deserts. This heavy expense (to the poor) is a serious affair, and if not accomplished before the fruits of marriage smile them in the face, it then (when most wanted) becomes more difficult still. I have said of Walter and Jane —

Give love and honest industry their way,
Clear but the sun-rise of life's little day. [17]

Lumping of ages together, as is sometimes done in the newspapers, I cannot relish. It means nothing. I remember seeing six or seven men of great age mentioned, with the common observation of their united ages making so many hundred years. Amongst them were John Wesley, Macklin, [18]  and the late Lord Mansfield. [19]  They were all old men: but the wonder was not increased by the adding into one total, the age of many contemporaries, any more than if we were to say— In the parish of Hackney have seven men, whose perpendicular height when placed on each others' heads, amounts to the surprising total of forty-three feet!

At the time of the illuminations for Nelson's victory, [21]  I thought if I had had the means to have sported a transparency, I might have quibbled thus:—

Duncan, Jervis, and Howe, [22] 
What say you all now —
(For by you were our triumphs begun:)
In the midst of alarms.
You fought well with both arms—
But Nelson has beat them with one!

I remember, too, beginning a song on that subject:—

Old Nile lately cried from his seven-mouth'd bed,
'Can such echoes proceed from a cloud?
For ages I've roll'd, and my banks overspread,
But never heard thunder so loud,' &c. [23]

The great Oak in Euston Park. — Myself, my wife, and my daughter Hannah, (then nine years and a half old), embraced his rough rind at arms length, touching our fingers; and could thus encompass it all but about half a yard. By observation afterwards, I found the girth of this tree to be fifteen feet, in May, 1801.

'Children, like tender oziers, take the bow;
And as they first are fashion'd, always grow.'

So says Mr. Gay. [24]  I was fifteen years old, when I first thought the last line untrue. I have more than doubled that age; and I think so still. It will not do for a maxim.

One half-acre of land, opposite the Prince of Wales's at Brighton, sold for 3500 guineas. My old shopmate, Charles Jones, states, that between twenty and thirty years ago, the Duke of Athol, speaking on the subject of the land-tax in the House of Peers, offered to sell a thousand acres of land, right and title for ever, for a thousand half-crowns!

————

Charles Jones's brother lent a shopmate his great coat, on a particular occasion. On his return home, this shoemaker declared that he never walked the streets so uncomfortably in his life. Wherever he went, the beggars were after him at every corner; and he concluded by protesting that he would not wear a good coat upon any account whatever. He most likely kept his word; for he was a terrible drunkard.

Could not the great features, of the history of the world, be represented by something like a firework? Suppose a number of fixed lights to represent the rise and fall of empires. Carthage might brighten to its zenith; and then Rome might arise in all its glories, and decline likewise. The Ottoman power, and the caliphs of Arabia; the blazing of the butchers of the East; the Tartar princes, and all the principal transactions recorded in history. If this could be done on a sufficient scale, and the ground-work be a map of the world, and the lights be made governable, as in Walker's orrery [25]  ——But this is dreaming! — dreaming!

It is very natural that the working poor should, in their endeavour to finish their work, and to add a few shillings to their day's or week's reckoning, sometimes transgress against the time allowed by masters for the taking in, and paying for their work; and it is just as natural for them, when reproved, to attempt some excuse. Mr. Chamberlain, who employed many hands (my brother and self amongst them), used to have an answer ready for one common excuse. — The journeymen or their wives would plead that 'they had made all possible haste to shop.' 'That's saying nothing,' says Chamberlain; 'you should have set out sooner.'

This answer might be applied in several other cases with equal justice:—

To the worldling, who has lately become such, and who grumbles that he has saved no more;

To the sailor, who loiters away a fair wind, and loses his market;

And, perhaps, to the man who marries at forty, and gets a young family — 'You should have set out sooner.'

Dr. Walker, [26]  who is just returned from Egypt, where he spread the vaccine inoculation in the army and navy, relates the following anecdote of the author of 'The Rights of Man,' which Paine himself had given in a company at Paris, where Dr. Walker was present. When a boy, he (Paine) went, in company with his sister — I think it was — to Fakenham wood, in search of nuts; and being by themselves, they wandered out of their knowledge, and knew not the way out again. In this dilemma, Tom, proposed that his sister should stand at a certain spot, while he went a short distance to climb some tree, to see his way out of the wood. He climbed the tree, and missing his hold, fell to the ground, and remembers reviving at the foot of the tree, and finding his sister supporting him. He was bruised, but with whole bones. They were belated and frightened; and both agreed to keep it a secret from their father: and Tom, knowing that his father made a practice of taking pills, thought that pills might do him good too. He took them accordingly, and luckily without producing any bad effect. He got well, and all was secret.

In relating this story of Tom Paine, Dr. W. remarked, that there are many thousands who will probably exclaim, 'What a pity that he had not broke his neck!' But, on the other hand, continued he, when I heard him relate it at Paris, one exclaimed, 'The guardian angel of liberty was near thee, Thomas.' Dr. W. is a warm republican. I think him an intelligent, a good, and an honest man.

Memorandum of Folly. — My good old aunt Austin had many sickly children; burying nine under three years old. With one of them, which was very ailing and fretful, a superstitious cure was attempted. I remember an old woman (Mrs. Osborne, of Honington) being employed to 'cut the child for the spleen.' The child's ear was cut so as to bleed, and the blood applied on the temples in the form of a cross, and, I believe, with something repeated by way of charm; for she had charms for the ague, &c. — The child died.

————

Remember having my fancy set to work by a strange and ridiculous song, about a child going to school and meeting the devil, and having a long conversation with him, and showing him a great deal of wit and repartee:—

'What have you in your basket?'
Says the false, false knight.
'Bread and butter for my dinner,'
Says the pretty little baby;
And still by the bush she stood.

'Whose sheep are those in the pasture?'
Says the false black knight.
'Some of them are my father's,'
Says the pretty little baby;
And still by the bush she stood.

'Which of them are your father's?'
Says the false, false knight.
'All those that have tails behind'
Says the pretty little baby;
And still by the bush she stood.

'Whose stacks of corn are those?'
Says the coal-black knight.
'My father's,' &c.

'I wish they were all on fire,'
Says the false, false knight.
'And you all in the middle on 't'
Says the pretty little baby, &c. [27] 

Thus it proceeds for about twenty verses, and I doubt I forget the best of it — what would more certainly have determined its origin, whether from monks or old women, or from some village bard, when the hero of the ballad, the coal-black knight, was in high repute. If this is an ancient ballad, and of no uncommon sort, in English villages, how does it happen that ancient Scotch ballads possess so many beauties? Or are they only sifted from heaps of rubbish like the above? If so, perhaps a collection of English might be formed by the same means. This ditty, sung to the thrum of the spinning-wheel, had its attractions; and this girl (now named Thompson), and one of the Whiteheads — I think, Sarah — when a girl, were the only persons who ever sung the ballad to my fancy.

Another song, which my brother Isaac knew when a boy, begins —

'There was an old ewe, who had but one horn,
Chronomo no no none;

—— could never keep her out of the corn.
Turn round the wheel, my Bunny.

The butcher came in, with his sharp knife,
Chronomo, &c.
And scared the old ewe almost out of her life.
Turn, &c.

She ground her teeth, and she mumbled her pegs,
Chronomo, &c.
And she ran at the butcher, and broke both his legs.
Turn, &c.' [28] 

This is evidently a spinning-wheel song; but perhaps of later date than the former.

The last Sunday in March breakfasted with Mr. Rogers; visited Mr. Stothard; and having to see the Duke of Grafton at five, spent the intermediate hours in Kensington-gardens: and recollecting that a razor was to pass my chin before I went there, I sought, and found a little shop in Kensington. The barber was gone half a mile from home, to shave a gentleman. He presently came in, and throwing of his hat and wig, gave vent to his perspiration and his anger both together. The person was gone out when he got there, and he had his walk for nothing! — How abominably these things plague a poor man, and disconcert his week's work; and he has no remedy — no action for damages ! — The bald-pated, angry old man began his operations upon me; and I was not quite free from apprehensions on account of his perturbation and appearance — but trust not appearances! When he had nearly finished, he ordered his girl to wet the corner of a cloth — I wondered what he wanted with it. It was instantly applied to my face ; and though this was the first time I had had my face washed by a barber, it appeared to be his custom. These scenes remind me of 'Roderick' and his friend 'Strap.' [29]  Smollett would have made something out of it. Observed, while refreshing myself at Kensington, a tradesman's board, inscribed

NEVERS,

The proximity of charcoal and cheesemongery, looks rather whimsical.

In our trade, when any one reads the newspapers or a book, by the neighbourly custom of sitting all in one room, and by that great privilege, of its not hindering the progress of our work, we have nothing to do, but to discuss the subject. Commumty, is perhaps the point, to which those who say that 'shoemakers are politicians,' might trace the solution of their wonder. But even a newspaper is not all politics. No one can read the daily prints without either learning, or feeling, his want of geographical knowledge. This must lead him to maps; and maps to reflection: and this reflection, unless it can be proved that it leads him to discontent, is praiseworthy, and full of pleasure to himself.

The highest ground in London is about Newgate-street. A stone, with an old inscription, is fixed on the wall of a baker's house, in a passage leading into Paternoster-row. [30]  I was lately led, from a kind of inadvertent curiosity, to look up to see who had the honour of living on the highest ground, and found the name James Bloomfield — Wonder, if from my country?

The brig Deane, Captain W. D. which arrived at Liverpool on Thursday, from Kentucky, with a cargo of cotton, was built on the Allegany river, in Pennsylvania, and came down the river Ohio into the Mississippi, having passed the great falls of the Ohio, and sailed a distance of nearly three thousand miles within the land. She is the first vessel, which ever came to Europe, from the western waters of the United States.— British Press, July 12, 1803. [31]

August 4, 1804. — State of the Nation (prophetical). — We shall have one out of three; namely, either

A sudden peace;

A powerful continental diversion*; or,

A tremendous attack, and war on our own shores.

* A powerful continental diversion took place a year after writing the above: but Napoleon has now, at the battle of Austerlitz, compelled them to be quiet, and will return upon us again. I write this upon New Year's Day, 1806.

Mackintosh on the Revolution of France, p. 23. [32]  — 'The deficit, or inferiority of the revenue to the expenditure, at length arose to the enormous sum of 115 millions of livres, or about 4,750,000l. annually.'

Introduction, page 18. — 'The Revolution, whether it be beneficial or injurious, was produced only by general causes, where the conspicuous individual produced little real effect.'

March, 1810. — Mr. Arnold, painter, of Buckingham-place, near Fitzroy-square, has an extract from the parish register of Bowes, or Brows, in Yorkshire, which records the burial of Robert Rightson and Mary Railton. The former died in a fever; the latter almost instantly, on hearing the bell toll for her lover. To this we owe the beautiful ballad of 'Edwin and Emma,' [33]  as appears likewise from the first edition of the ballad now in his hands.

REFLECTIONS.

I almost repine that I know nothing of astronomy. Mr. Lofft often mentions to me things relating thereto, in his letters; I wish I could understand him — 'Past one o'clock: a cloudy morning!' Thus comes in the 15th of March, 1801. That poor man, perhaps, has but eighteen-pence a night for being in the cold — to bed! to bed!

When I think on Egyptian architecture, it seems an oak in a forest of shrubs. Time sweeps away the habitations of men — the under-works of art — as man sweeps away the underwood of a forest: but the pyramid and the oak remain. If London should sink into oblivion, or at least dwindle into a village, what will be the most imperishable thing in the ruin? The foundations of the bridges would stand a good tug against the assaults of time, and the proud cathedral would hold its elevated ruins full of owls and ivy; still to be wondered at, when the dwellings should be no more. The greatest undertakings that I know of, now going on, are the Wet Docks at the Isle of Dogs. [34]  Thirty acres of land sunk to so great a depth seems a huge attempt; but it is only digging a hole after all! If it could be possible for London to become a Babylon, the chafings and surgings of old Father Thames — for HE would not stop –– would leave no traces of labour or art in the docks; nature would soon blot out the boast of a nation, and the strong arm of the invariable tide . . . . But I was going to say, that I could almost wish for some edifice, in or near the capital, that should perpetuate the site of the city. And yet if the walls of Babylon were indeed as substantial as they are said to have been, where are they gone?

————

When London-people walk out of town, like bees from a hive (only seldom on so good an errand), how entirely unacquainted they appear to be, with the warning which the rising clouds give of the approach of a shower. It looks strange, if not laughable, to see a number of well-dressed people, sauntering with the utmost composure from their homes, full in the face of a black and threatening cloud, which in ten minutes is to involve them in trouble and vexation. But though the countryman keeps his eyes on the heavens, and preserves a dry coat, he could not turn a corner, or escape a hackney coach, with the dexterity of a Londoner. Every one to his trade!

A brother-tradesman in the City-road has inscribed over his stall,

'MASON,

Shoemaker and Repairer in general.'

Well done, shopmate! 'Shoes neatly mended,' the common sign for a cobbler, you, no doubt, objected to: but you are a cobbler at last, and why should you be ashamed of it?

————

I think that ambition, courage, and sensibility may 'run in the blood,' as we term it. Should any one of these qualities, or any conspicuous vice or virtue, actually belong to a family, which happens to govern a nation, such inherent quality ought to be expected in any of its branches; even if the party is not known to be of the family, or is in disguise, as is frequently represented in novels and plays. But that a hidden something, an innate nobility, a royalty by nature, should be looked for in every great personage, or person raised accidentally to power, is nonsense in itself, and it is almost criminal to propagate it as a doctrine. Mr. Home has made Norval a true Douglas, [35]  possessing his forefathers' courage; but I have read several things, which I could not now name, which, in this unnatural distortion of character, were shamefully disgusting. Perhaps this is only saying that they were not written by such men as Home, who knows what belongs to character and what to accident.

ME: The Catholic Church has a pernicious pedophilia problem related to sexism and the rules governing priest recruitment. Pedophilia in the priesthood is due to a defective theology that is very resistant to change, and the hierarchy protects both the theory and the practice. It’s a broken culture that ignores this stuff.

INTERNET: I’m Catholic, and I am offended. You are a horrible person. What religion are you?

INTERNET: Are you calling me a pedophile?

INTERNET: Are you calling all Catholics pedophiles?

INTERNET: I’m a pedophile, but I’m not a priest. Your argument fails.

INTERNET: Why are you sex-shaming pedophiles? They are who they are; they didn’t ask to be pedophiles. It’s either a genetic thing, or else it’s childhood stuff. Either way, they can’t help it.

INTERNET: Why are you attacking priests? I’m a priest and I’m not a pedophile.

INTERNET: Let he who has not done something perverted cast the first stone.

INTERNET: Do you even go to church? If you did you would know most priests aren’t pedophiles.

INTERNET: I don’t see how this has anything to do with the church or how they select priests.

INTERNET: Imagine that you get called by God and take a vow of poverty to become a priest, and then someone suggests that the priesthood has a pedophilia problem. It’s outrageous.

INTERNET: When I was a choir boy I was never diddled by a priest. I think this whole thing is made up by people looking for attention and money.

INTERNET: It’s not the Vatican’s fault. The local churches have to patrol themselves. I blame the congregations and the parents for not doing their job.

INTERNET: I’ve read the Bible, and there’s nothing in there that requires pedophilia, so I’m not sure what you’re talking about.

INTERNET: So what if a priest does have sex with kids? At least the kids are getting attention. Get over it.

INTERNET: Pedophiles can’t help it; they’re born that way. You are engaged in pedophile-shaming and I hope you get hit by a truck driven by a pedophile.

INTERNET: Not all pedophiles are fucking little boys.

INTERNET: It’s not always rape. Don’t confuse rape and having sex with children.

INTERNET: You’re a bigot. In other cultures and eras this is all normal. You’re very narrow minded. I no longer like you.

INTERNET: The Church is looking into this pedophilia stuff. Give it time. It’s complicated. We wouldn’t want to throw out the baby with the bath water.

INTERNET: What about nuns hitting kids? That’s way worse, and way more common.

INTERNET: I’m a priest and do more than fuck children; I also do woodwork. Don’t pigeonhole all priests. You suck.

INTERNET: What about the nun-raping? Are you saying that’s OK?

INTERNET: Why are you opposed to gays? Are you homophobic? You are heterosexual scum.

INTERNET: Why are you opposed to sex?

INTERNET: This an American problem.

INTERNET: This also happens in Ireland, Canada, France, Australia, England, Mexico.... so why focus on Philadelphia?

INTERNET: I blame the Victorians.

INTERNET: Why are you obsessed with pedophiles? Are you a pedophile?

INTERNET: It’s not really sex the way we do it in our club which has standards set out by the priests. It’s OK the way we do it.

INTERNET: Pedophilia has a long history and the following great people in history were pedophiles. Do you even know history?

INTERNET: It’s only pedophilia when the child is under 12. From 12-18 it’s “youth courting.”

INTERNET: You don’t know anything about youth courting. How many teenagers have you fucked?

INTERNET: You don’t understand; these older men are helping gay youth explore their sexuality. That’s a good thing.

INTERNET: People are born pedophiles, and God doesn’t make junk. We need to accept pedophilia as part of the great wobble of what people can be. No shame and no blame. You are very backward in your thinking.

INTERNET: Why listen to some cisgender blogger who is hating on Catholics?

INTERNET: Love is love, and haters gonna hate.

INTERNET: These priests are old. What else do you expect them to do?

INTERNET: Most pedophiles aren’t Catholics or priests. Your argument is nonsense.

INTERNET: If a 7-year old can pay taxes, and 12-year old can shoot a shotgun, and 14-year old can work, and a 15-year old can drive, then they can all consent to have sex.

INTERNET: You need a little pedophilia to maintain the priesthood. How else are we going to get priests?

INTERNET: It’s not just the Catholics; the Muslims are worse. And the Evangelicals.

INTERNET: Catholic priests are no more likely to be pedophiles than anyone else. Stop Catholic bashing.

INTERNET: How come you’re not focusing on all the good work done by priests who aren’t pedophiles? Let’s lift them up.

INTERNET: How come a 70-year old man can marry a 35-year old woman and that’s OK, but it’s not OK for that same man to have sex with her when he’s 47 and she’s 12? This stuff seems completely arbitrary.

INTERNET: I’m from Pakistan where child brides are part of our heritage. Your concerns are a paternalistic kind of imperialism. Child marriage has been going on for a thousand years in my country, and it hasn’t hurt us.

INTERNET: Jeffrey Epstein was a massive pedophile and he was Jewish. So your argument fails.

INTERNET:  What does this have to do with dogs?

TUCKER CARLSON: Tucker Carlson concedes child rape is "unpopular" in passionate defense of child rape.

          Delphi Tablet III      Cache   Translate Page      
I posted in October on the Delphi tablet here and here. This image is piece #6323. However, I only have time for the first four lines at the moment.

Ἧ πολὺ κ[αλ]ίστωι σε θεαί, Μ[..., γέρησαν
Δώρωι Π[ιερ]ίδες παρθένοι ε[ὺπλόκαμοι]
Αίπερ σοι [τό]δε μούνωι ὲπιχθ[ονίων ἀνθρώπον,
Ὤπασα[ν] ἐξευρεῖν πείρατα πά[ντα τέχνης.] *

With this translation into German,

Wirklich mit einem sehr schonen Geschenk haben dich, M...
die schonehaarigen pierischen Jungfrauen geehrt
die dich als einzigen Mensche auf Erden damit
begabt haben, jegliche Grenzen der Kunst zu erfinden

Truly with a very great gift
have the beautiful haired Pieridean maidens
honoured you, who is the only human on earth
to whom it has been given to invent the very finisher of all arts

In plain English,

The Muses have truly honoured
you with a great gift,
for you to be the sole inventor
on earth of the ultimate art.

I have disagreed with the German translator somewhat on this phrase, πείρατα πάντα τέχνης. Or maybe I am unfamiliar with the German term 'Grenze der Kunst.' Πείρατα can refer to boundaries or borders, but it also is used for the goldsmiths tools, the finishers of art.

Here is Liddell and Scott.

I - an end as in the ends of the earth
II - the end or issue of a thing: the furthest point, the utmost verge: the chief or most important object.
III - that which finishes, a godsmith's tools are called πείρατα τέχνης, the finishers of art.

I am inclined to think now of this system on the Delphi tablet as a poetic device, or a way to represent phonology, or even an early example of a constructed script. After all, the name of the inventor was mentioned, although it has not been preserved in this fragment.

Any further comments are welcome, whether to improve my translation or otherwise.

* The bracketed letters have been cited by Boge from J. Bousquet, 1956.

          Hebrew Online Keyboard with Vowels      Cache   Translate Page      
I was back visiting the Lesser Of Two Weevils to pick up a few tips on how she can input and display Hebrew vowels so easily. I found this online keyboard with vowels. How cool is that! I don't want to lose it since I have been looking for one for ever so here it is.

And she has a post which may elucidate the Golem legend. Here is an excerpt from her post on the The Power of the Word. (This also gives me a chance to input and display Hebrew.) The topic of her post is the word דִבְּר diber, 'to speak', from dabar 'word'. The point is that this is a keyboard that takes no time to learn, just click around. Okay, so it is a picker. It works.

Here is Talmida on 'the word'.

In finishing my translation in 2 Kings 14 I ran into an expression that I found very satisfying.

Verse 27 begins,

וְלֹא-דִבֶּר יְהוָה לִמְחוֹת אֶת-שֵׁם יִשְׂרָאֵל
/v'lo-diber adonai limhhot et-shem yisrael.
Word for word, that works out to this: and not - he spoke the Lord to erase name of Israel.This spoke (no pun intended) to me in a very powerful way.

One of the things that I feel drawing me (calling me?) to study Hebrew is that the Hebrew words themselves are important -- not just their meanings, but the words. I'm not quite sure how--and I don't think I'm ready to study Kabbalah just yet--but I sense that there is something just beyond my grasp and that the way to reach it is to master Biblical Hebrew, and when that's done, I will see my way clear to the next step God wants me to take. I've blogged about this a bit before.

This passage resonated so powerfully with me I want to shout it out! The verb diber means, to speak. The noun form, davar, means word, thing, affair. If you look in a modern Hebrew New Testament, the Gospel of John tells us that "in the beginning was davar". There's a reason for that.

The most common English translations have a similar spin on this verse of 2 Kings:

And the LORD said not that he would blot out the name of Israel (KJV)
But the LORD had not said that he would blot out the name of Israel (NRSV)
And the Lord did not say that he would blot out the name of Israel (D-R)

But check out the Judaica Press version:
And the Lord did not speak to eradicate the name of Israel (JPCT)


Thanks, Talmida.

I have not forgotten Syriac, or the Delphi tablet, but unfortunately those posts are a little more work since they require images. Sorry.

          Julie Budd Returns To NYC Cabaret With A New Show At Birdland Theatre      Cache   Translate Page      

Birdland Theater is proud to announce that singer Julie Budd will perform in concert on Wednesday through Saturday, May 1 - 4 at 7pm. Ms. Budd, backed by longtime musical director Herb Bernstein, will perform material by such varied songwriters as Michel Legrand, Duke Ellington. Laura Nyro, Jule Styne, Cy Coleman, Dorothy Fields, Marvin Hamlisch, Carole King, Barry Manilow, Anthony Newley, Marc Shaiman, Burt Bacharach & Hal David, Neil Sedaka, Oscar Levant, and more.

"Growing up, the songs I was singing were written by the greats - people that in my future, I would know and work with. 'The Songs Of My Life' is my journey in music...my life in art...and how it all shaped my life and good fortune for the next 53 years in show business. This is my heartfelt tribute to the great composers and lyricists that I had the grand fortune to know. How lucky I was to perform their brilliant works! After all...what good is a voice if you don't have wonderful songs to sing?"

Julie Budd began her professional career at the tender age of twelve, after winning a talent show while vacationing with her family. In the audience, was renowned Producer/Orchestrator, Herb Bernstein, who recorded some of the greatest artists ever known to music, including singer/songwriter Laura Nyro. While producing Nyros' first hit album, Bernstein was also recording the eminent TV talk show host, Merv Griffin. Herb immediately took Julie under his wing and introduced her to Merv at a recording session in New York City. Merv immediately invited her to appear on "The Merv Griffin Show."

What followed as Budd's career blossomed, were over a hundred more invitations from Merv to appear on his show! Today, Julie continues to perform her concerts and one-woman shows, nationally and internationally while adding some of the most prestigious stages to her roster: Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, London Palladium, Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center and many of the finest Las Vegas Showrooms. In addition, Julie Budd had the distinction of touring with the late, great Marvin Hamlisch, who personally invited her to be his guest artist for seven years.

If that's not enough, Julie is a favorite to many of the symphony orchestras throughout the country including: Baltimore Symphony, National Symphony, Pittsburgh Symphony, Austin Symphony, Alabama Symphony, Philadelphia Symphony, Dallas Symphony and the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra.

          Theseus and the Minotaur      Cache   Translate Page      
The legend of the hero Theseus is matched only by the infamy of the beast he slew - the Minotaur. When the city's hour of need was at its greatest, the hero came forth to face the threat beyond the sea...


Theseus discovers the sword
Painting by Antonion Balestra
Long ago, before the days of Hellenic greatness, before even the Trojan War, there sat Aegeus on the throne of Athens, eighth in line since great Cecrops had received the olive from the goddess Athena and founded the city which forever honours her name. As a young man, Aegeus had sought a Queen to secure the still fragile Athenian dynasty, and came to the city of Troezen, a power in the nearby Eastern Peloponnese. Smitten with Aethra, daughter to King Pittheus, the humble Aegeus pledged himself to her. When the night of their betrothal came, and the wedding was consummated, a god's will compelled Aethra out of the Palace and into the night. Drawn far from the walls, her foot touched the glassy waters of the ocean, as she waded to the island of Sphairia. There, embraced in Poseidon's realm, she was embraced too by the god of the watery realm. Thus was her son to have two fathers, one a mortal man, the other a god, a son of Kronos. When Dawn arrived, and the enchantment lifted, Aethra was racked with guilt, and confessed to Aegeus. Distraught, the Athenian King resolved to return to Athens. But before he did, he left a trial for his yet unborn son. Taking his own sword and sandals, he dug a ditch just wide enough, and concealed the regalia within, and sealed them in their earthen tomb below a mighty boulder such that no man who lacked royal or divine blood could lift. Aegeus told Aethra that when the time came, the boy might come to him bearing the sword and sandals, and his birthright would then be his.

Thus was the infant boy, who was gifted the name of Theseus, raised in the land of his mother. With royal blood of both mortal and immortal kind flowing in his veins, a strong young lad he became, the envy of all in his company. Then one day he asked his mother of his father, for rumours had he heard of his mystical parentage. Aethra told the boy of the boulder, and that he should take what he found beneath it to King Aegeus of Athens, and follow his path there. Finding the great stone, in the grip of vines and of moss, Theseus placed his strong hands on either side, and heaved. Royal blood and divine sinew strained, and the pinnacle was torn from the ground. A flash of sunlight shone from below, and there no more tarnished than the day they were lain there, the sword glinted, and the sandals too. Taking them, a warmth in his fingers, Theseus set out on the long road to Athens.

When at last the Acropolis appeared on the horizon, Theseus arrived in a city of misery, for Athens was submit to the will of the wrathful King of Crete - Minos. Long ago, enraged by the assassination of his son at the hands of jealous Athenians, Minos had warred down Athens to the point of capitulation. In desperation, the Athenians begged the Oracle of Delphi for advice. Her words were unsually unambiguous - submit to Minos' wish. The ambassadors of Athens came before the Cretan King, and offered surrender, if he would spare their city. Minos offered them peace, but on one terrible condition. Every nine years, Athens must send to Crete the seven most promising young boys, and the seven most beautiful young girls, where they were to be thrown deep into the labryinthine dungeons of Knossos. Rumours abounded in the courts of the world, terrible stories of unspeakable horror. Long ago, the great architect Daedalus had designed the Labyrinth for one grisly purpose, to contain the monstrous brood of Queen Pasiphae and the Cretan Bull, a creature both man in body and beast in head, the bloodthirsty Minotaur. The Ambassadors balked. The choice that lay between King Aegeus now, either humiliation or destruction. Resigned to his fate, a grieving Aegeus had accepted the cruel tribute that was demanded of him, to sacrifice the few for the survival of the many. The day Theseus arrived in Athens was the third time the emissary of Crete had arrived to exact the tribute, and Athens mourned her third loss.

Theseus, alone happy in a sea of mourning, approached the broken King ahead, holding high the shining sword, and clad in the fine sandals of the House of Erechtheus. A glint of sunlight, the King raises his head. He sees the blade he cast beneath the earth so long ago, and for the first time in many long years,a  ray of happiness pierced his life, for well did he know that there was but one person who could have claimed them. A rare smile breaks his face, as he runs to give his child his first embrace, just as many others around wail as they give their last. Tomorrow will be the day when the ships sail for Crete's dark domain, and the last victims are yet to be chosen to meet their fate. Aegeus welcomed Theseus to the city, and honoured him as a citizen of Athens, and the people cheered, momentarily distracted from the dark day ahead.

Long ago King Aegeus had decreed that there was only one way to decide fairly, and that was a lottery of all the citizens of Athens, with no exceptions. Evening came, and the lottery of death could be delayed no more. Athenian fathers and mothers wept as their children placed their tokens in the vessel. Woe that the King should see his son return on this day, for Theseus too honoured the pact, and placed his own mark within. Tense was the atmosphere, and grievous the anticipation. All men felt as though the gallows awaited, the base dread of every parent incarnate, present, and inevitable. Seven stones were chosen from the girl's ballot box, seven families broken, and the palace groaned beneath their cries. The screams had barely abated when seven more were chosen from the boy's box. Six rolled out, and six mothers screamed, yet when the seventh rolled out, it was the King himself who joined them, for there, unambiguously, was the stone that poor Theseus had cast within. Never had a father known such joy and such terror in one day. Aegeus embraced the prodigal son, but his rules were absolute, and Aegeus was a just ruler. Theseus would be joining his thirteen fellow citizens on their final voyage. But Theseus, no stranger to danger, filled with valour and bravado in equal measure, vowed to slay the monster that lurked below the King's Palace. With such longing, anything to distract him from clear logic, Aegeus dared to trust in him.

Dawn arrived, Light and impending doom both carried in her wake. The ferrymen readied black sails upon the ships, for it seemed a funeral sail. But it was then that Theseus, son of two fathers, who boldly commanded the black be cast aside in favour of white. He vowed before the men and women of Athens that he would conquer the Minotaur, and that the dark days would soon be at an end. Fresh hope filled the hearts of the Athenians, and people dared to wonder. Aegeus took the boy aside and asked him one thing, that should he succeed against the odds, to fly the white sail on his return, so that Athens may know in advance of his fate. Theseus agreed, and father and son embraced for what all around believed the last time. Sails white as the snow on Olympus' lofty heights billowed, and the voyage was begun. Twice before the ferrymen had made this journey, twice before had they steeled themselves against the soft weeping of yore. This time however, a different atmosphere prevailed. Buoyed by the limitless reserve of fortitude that Theseus seemed to possess, the thirteen clung to the one thing Pandora had saved so long ago - hope.

When at last the ferrymen hurled their ropes on Cretan docks, fear lanced through the Athenians more terrible than ever, for no mere emissary stood to await them, but Minos himself and his daughter, Ariadne. Now Minos was no simpleton nor ignorant fool. News reached his ears from far and wide. Least of all could Crete escape the stories of the twice fathered son. Yet there was one part of the legend the King, himself a son of Zeus and Europa, longed to know. Thus he cried:


                     " You, if Troezenian Aethra bore you to Poseidon the earth shaker,
                      bring this splendid gold ornament on my hand back from the depths
                      of the sea, casting your body boldy down to your father's home... "
                                - KING MINOS CHALLENGES THESEUS

From his finger the King took his sovereign's ring, and cast it into the azure sea, a tiny flash of gold against the ripples of blue. The spirit of Theseus within held no fear, as without a moment's fear, he dived from the Athenian prow into the waves. Out of the murky blackness of the deep a dolphin soared, and beckoned Theseus to follow. Down and down into the foot of the ocean they went, until the halls of Poseidon they reached, bright with the spirit of gods. Shining Nereids played hither and thither, hippocampi wallowing in the surf. There ahead sat enthroned Amphitrite, the consort of the god himself upon the coral throne. There at the foot of it all sat the ring, an insignificant band before the lady of the ocean herself.

High above the Cretans and Athenians sat anxiously, the Minoans smiling, the Athenians tense. But then, the surface of the Ocean was rent asunder, as a powerful hand burst forth from the azure waves, clasping a sovereign's ring. Behind it came the body of Theseus, the twice fathered son if Poseidon. The Athenians shouted with joy, hope sprang anew. Even the Cretans were struck dumb. But Minos, himself heaven born, was not swayed. He saw now a mere equal, yet Theseus was son to the god of the sea, whereas he was son to the god of gods himself. To him he summoned his guards, and bade them cast the Athenians into gaol.


Ariadne gifts the twine to Theseus
Painting by Niccolo Bambini
In the dungeons of Knossos, a city whose beauty concealed a secret spattered with blood, the Athenians were sealed for their final night, one last night Minos granted them before they gazed upon the face of death. But it was not only Minos who had noticed something about Theseus, for in the moment she first saw him, Ariadne, struck by the barb of Cupid, had been drawn to the young prince. Well did she know of the horror with the Labyrinth's walls, and great was her pity for the young Prince. Coming to his cell, she bore a gift, a simple gift which no guard would question. A simple ball of string. Through the bars she passed the invaluable twine, instructing Theseus to tie one end at the entrance to the unconquerable maze, and hold the other at all times, so that he might see the light of day again should he prevail against the odds. She gave to him one further thing, a piece of knowledge great Daedalus himself had once told her. "Go forwards, always down and never left nor right". Theseus, overwhelmed, gave thanks to Ariadne, and swore to come for her if he triumphed. With a smile she withdrew into the night.

Dawn arrived to a blood red sky over the idyllic island of Crete, as the jailer arrived to unlock the cells. Black were the omens, grieving the moods. Just one among the Athenian party looked straight ahead. Theseus, heart pounding, gazed into the dark entrance of the Labyrinth. A torch burned in a bracket in the dark tunnel ahead. Fumbling, his hand found the ball of twine, and wisely did he fix one end upon the bracket. The thirteen followed close behind him, daring not to be without him in the house of death. Bold Theseus led the way, and faithful was he to Ariadne's word, for onward he strode, never a branch in the dark path did he take.


Theseus victorious
Painting by Charles-Edouard Chaise
For an age, or so it seemed, this strange procession took place, the presence of the twice fathered heir to the throne the only thing preventing the thirteen falling into ruinous panic. A shattered human bone came into view from the darkness, a race of pulses. Further in and further down they went, when soon a most nauseating stench rose to their nostrils. The stink of death, and rotting cadavers. The pounding hearts dared to shake the walls, matched only by the unearthly sound of snoring in the darkness beyond, as Theseus bade his kin remain silent, lest their presence be revealed. Further in and further down, as though down the throat of Hell they went now, until a clearing suddenly opened up before them. There, in the heart of the great Labyrinth atop a mound of mangled bones spattered with blood, lay the dealer of so many Athenian deaths. "A mingled form and hybrid birth of monstrous shape... two different natures, man and bull, were joined in him...". The monstrous brood of the Cretan Queen and the Cretan Bull lay stretched out, snoring loudly as it slept, gorged on human flesh. Then the courage of one of them failed, the sight of so many of their kin cruelly slaughtered, and a scream. A heavily lidded taurian eye wrenched open, and snores turned to roars. Theseus moved quick as a flash, and leaped onto the creature's back, swift as an arrow, before it found its feet. Nerves racing, Poseidon and Aegeus' son summoned all his might, divine and royal blood thundering through his veins, and flung his arms around Asterion's mighty neck. More than once the Minotaur's lethal horns near pierced his chest, as the crew of Athens gasped, their own lives on the line now. Tighter was the hero's iron grip, fiercer the monster's rage, wakened from its nine year slumber. Slammed against the great Labyrinth's walls, no other man could have held on, but no other man was Theseus. Seeing the terror on the faces of his kin, he had all the motivation he needed, and Theseus wrenched one last time with all his strength, forcing the creatures on one knee. The Minotaur snorted loudly, and breath left its body. With a loud crunch, the massive form fell upon the bones of its victims, cast down to the Inferno, never again to rise and trouble the realm of men. Blood still pounding in his ears, Theseus did not at first hear the screams all around, but no screams of fear were they, but sheer relief mingled with joy...

          The Trident and the Spear      Cache   Translate Page      
Every city which rises to greatness does so from humble beginnings. So high can a nation rise that so mythic can her origins seem. Every great thing, be it a nation, a person, even an idea, has to start somewhere. To our ancestors of old, greatness was a sure sign of favour from on high. For the hand of a god must surely have been at work when one of the most influential cities in human history, for better or worse, was born.


Athena
2nd century AD Roman bust  from Velletri
The Olympians had fought a terrible fight for mastery of the Cosmos. Their forefathers and creators of the Universe, the Titans had not yielded their divine grip easily. After so great a struggle, the harmony of the World was worth more than anything to the gods, even to Zeus the Thunderer, King of the gods and Lord of the Sky. Now fidelity was one thing that Zeus the Thunderer knew not, and many a hero of the ancient world owed his existence to the philandering adventures of the god of gods. It was little surprise therefore, when Zeus undertook a clandestine affair with the beautiful Titaness Metis. However, when the Fates prophesied that the child of Metis would be mightier in spirit and wiser in understanding than its father, Zeus the father of gods and men was convulsed with fear. Long ago, his father Kronos had heard similar words, with dire consequences. The Heavens had groaned under the Titanomachy, and could ill afford so ruinous a war for a second time. So Zeus the Thunderer decided on a little evil for a greater good. Weaving his divine powers of transfiguration, the shape of Metis he shifted to that of a common fly, and the god swallowed her whole, so that she may never give birth to this legendary child.

Time passed, but troubles did not for the Lord of Olympus. As the days grew late, a terrible pain struck the god inside. What began as an ache inside his royal head, soon swelled to a pounding agony that would not die. Time soon came when even the Thunder himself, conqueror of Typhon and Heaven could bear the torment no more, and summoned to his side Hephaestus, the god of the forge and weaver of fire. "Take up thy hammer and rend asunder this head that pains me so, lest this torture afflict me for all the ages to come", said Zeus. The lame god of the smith stood dumbstruck by this command - split open the head of Zeus? But the father of gods and men was inexorable, and irresistible. So Hephaestus took up his hammer and tongs, and with a mighty strike, he breached the Divine Crown. A roar of thunder and a flash of light rolled over the skies. Then, in a blur of speed an apparition appeared. From the fissures in the skull of Zeus there leapt a figure, strongly built yet distinctly feminine, agile yet fully armed, wise yet ready for war, a new goddess entered the cosmos. Athena, goddess of wisdom, mistress of stratagem, lady of the spear and patron of heroes.

Around this time, far below on the mortal plain, the tribes of Attica came together under their King, Cecrops. Born of Mother Earth herself, Cecrops taught the Atticans the still young arts of reading and writing, of literature, of burial and brought the institution of marriage to the tribesmen. Civilisation as we know it, was being born. Soon, however, the simple villages of Attica groaned under the advance of the people, and a new home was needed. Under the leadership of their vibrant King, the Atticans set off through the harsh landscape of Attica, where open plains give way to beaten rock. After a time they came to a place in the West, largely flat yet punctuated by towering pinnacles of rock. The sea lay yonder, yet wise Cecrops knew that to build their new city on the shore itself was too dangerous in an era of rampant piracy on the high seas. Away from the shore then, yet near enough for trade, the people set foot upon a mount with a commanding position over the plain and the sea. Here would be founded their new city, and grandiose would it be. But every new city needed a patron god, but who?


Poseidon
The Artemision Bronze
Word reached Olympus of the gathering under Cecrops upon the Mount. Just then,  the Fates declared that the city that would be founded upon that place would rise to a greatness rivalling the best of all Greece. Glory and honour would walk hand in hand to whomsoever should become her patron. A frenzy gripped Mount Olympus, and the all the divine array wondered. Two among them immediately took the floor. Athena, ever ready with sharpened word and thought, leapt to her newborn feet. But Poseidon, god of the sea, shaker of the earth and lord of horses, bowed to few. Even Zeus himself, King of all gods kept a close eye on his ambitious younger brother, for most vexed was Poseidon when he lost the Heavens in the division of the cosmos. Torn between loyalty to his brother, however unruly, and care for his daughter, despite the danger she posed as his successor, Zeus decreed that the people should decide the patron of their city. Immediately, the two deities spirited down from Olympus and made landfall upon the mountain. With a blinding flash and a roar of thunder, the people cowered at the sight of the divine array. Fearful lest they choose one over the other, the people knew not what to do. Cecrops their King, however, decided. Turning to his gods, he declared that the patronage of the new city would belong to the one who presented the greatest gift to it. Poseidon and Athena, uncle and niece, eyed each other, and readied their contest.


The Sea of Olives, Delphi
Photograph taken by the author
Both god and goddess, stood aside the towering pinnacles of the Acropolis, poised for the prize of glory. Poseidon, shaker of the Earth, took the first move. Raising his mighty Trident high into the air, with a rush of godly strength he plunged the three blades into the mountain side. A deafening rumble rippled across the Earth, and the people were thrown to the ground, terrified. There, where the central prong penetrated the summit (a place today commemorated by the Erechtheion), the wounded rock spat forth a spring of water thick with brine. The Emperor of all Oceans granted to the people the gift of the sea itself, and the assurance that one day they would master it. A fabulous gift indeed. Next the virgin goddess stepped forth. The eyes of Athena looked into the souls of all mortals present, and she senses their hopes and fears. Confident, and unyielding, the daughter of Zeus took up her spear and flung it into the mount. The people watched, entranced, for before their eyes the lance began to shift. The wooden shaft lengthened and broadened, from the blade branches sprang forth, rich with the bounty of its dark fruit. To the people Athena gave the gift of the humble olive tree. Poseidon looked on, bemused and anxious.


Athens at her height
Painting by Leo von Klenze
The primordial Athenians looked on the lowly sprig with wonder and amazement, as the goddess instilled some of her divine wisdom in their minds. Cecrops beckoned his people round to cast their vote. Poseidon's gift was mighty indeed, as was his promise. Mastery of the Ocean? 'Tis the dream of empires! A great destiny had been given to them. But that all looked a long way off to the primitive people, as they looked to and fro, and saw naught but barren rock. One citizen splashed some of the water over his face, and recoiled at its salty taste. The people turned to the sapling, Athena's gift. One fellow took a blackened grape from its boughs, and crushed it in his hands, and oil splashed across his palm. Into his mouth he tossed the olive and pleasing was its taste. Seeing the thick and robust trunk too, he saw the greatness of Athena's gift. Poseidon had given them a taste of great nations, but Athena had given them a source of food, of wood and oil, and something they could trade with others. The people sank to their knees with joy, and hurled themselves at the foot of Athena, daughter of Zeus and maiden of Olympus. Poseidon, god of the seas, was infuriated, but his niece had won the day. Cecrops declared Athena the one true patron of their new city. He declared that this place, the Acropolis, would ever be sacred to her. He declared too, that in her honour the city would be named. To the roar of approval from the first Athenians, he named the city. Athens, the glory of Athena...

          Anathema on Metropolitan B. Gudziak      Cache   Translate Page      
On 11 March 2019, by authority of the apostolic and prophetic office, the Byzantine Catholic Patriarchate pronounced an anathema – excommunication from the Church – on Borys Gudziak. On 18 February 2019, Francis appointed him Metropolitan of Philadelphia (USA).
B.Gudziak, not only as President of UCU in Lvov (Ukraine), promoted gender immorality, which is rebellion against God and God’s law. He holds the ecclesiastical post illegitimately. If he refuses to repent and dies in this state, he will be eternally condemned as a heretic.

          Want To Play A Tiny Desk Concert? Enter The 2019 Tiny Desk Contest!      Cache   Translate Page      

 

https://youtu.be/RYcQiWgEG2Q

In 2014, we started the Tiny Desk Contest with the humble goal of discovering new music. Since then, your entries have blown us away. Your music has made us laugh, made us cry and filled us with insurmountable joy. It's been incredible to watch artists in this community grow.

So, the moment you've all been waiting for has finally arrived: The Tiny Desk Contest is back for 2019! And for the first time ever, our Contest will be open to artists 18 years and older.

Get to work on your video, because you can enter starting today.

Here's how to enter:

  1. Film a video of you or your band performing an original song at a desk. Any desk will do.
  2. Upload your video to YouTube.
  3. Submit your video via the entry form on our website.

 

That's it! We'll be accepting entries now through April 14 at 11:59 p.m. EST. If you've got questions, feel free read the official rules or check out our FAQs.

The Contest winner will come to NPR headquarters to play their very own Tiny Desk concert, and then come on tour with NPR Music with support from our sponsor, Blue Microphones.

I'm so excited about our judging panel this year. I'll be joined by some friends from public radio: Rodney Carmichael of NPR Music, Raul Campos of KCRW and Abbie Gobeli of KEXP — dedicated seekers of new music from all genres and styles — plus, some of our favorite Tiny Desk alums: Jason Isbell, Ledisi and Lucy Dacus.

Winning the Contest can really change an artist's life. Just ask Naia Izumi. After he won last year, Izumi went from busking on the street to opening on the national tour for The Lone Bellow and signing a contract with Sony Masterworks. Other winners have gone on to play world tours and festivals like Coachella and South By Southwest (See you there, Gaelynn Lea.) They've released amazing albums. (We can't wait to hear the new record from Tank and The Bangas.) One winner has even gone on to win two Grammys. (Congrats, Fantastic Negrito!)

Our winners aren't the only artists who entered the Contest who I've invited to play behind my Tiny Desk. Just last week, the Philadelphia band &More, who caught our eye with its Contest entry last year, came and performed a Tiny Desk concert. We love to feature entries in other ways, too. When we go on tour with the winner, we ask local artists who entered the Contest to join the bill and we write about entries we love on this blog. We're proud of the community you've built with us and we can't wait to see what's in store this year.

Got a song you want the world to hear? We want to hear it, too.

  • Konstipasi yang memerlukan pengobatan untuk melunakkan feses dan laksatif.
  • Pada pasien yang anemis/kadar Hb darahnya menurun drastis diperlukan tablet besi.
  • Obat-obatan yang dapat meningkatkan tonus pembuluh darah sehingga dapat mengurangi perdarahan dan dapat diresepkan pada pasien yang mengalami wasir yang berdarah.

2. Wasir Ambeien Obat dengan Pemberian obat-obatan lokal, seperti :

  • Penggunaan salep yang mengandung gallic acid, xylocaine atau hidrokortison (cocok untuk pasien wasir grade 1 yang dini).
  • Pengobatan injeksi (suntikan sklerosing agen) yang umumnya akan diberikan pada wasir akut stadium 3 dan 4.

Wasir ambeien obat selain dengan menggunakan obat generik atau obat dokter, maka bisa dilakukan dengan cara seperti :

  • Konsumsi jenis makanan yang mengandung serat tinggi. Makanlah makanan yang berasal dari buah, sayuran, serta biji-bijian. Buah pepaya merupakan salah satu buah yang bsia membantu untuk melancarkan proses buang air besar.
  • Mengonsumsi air putih kurang lebih 1,5-2 liter dalam sehari. Manfaat air putih adalah untuk membantu membuat feses menjadi lunak jadi saat sedang buang air besar kita tidak usah mengejan dengan terlalu kuat.
  • Jika Anda ingin minum suplemen serat, maka teliti dahulu sebeli, membeli. Sebaiknya lakukan konsultasi dengan dokter terlebih dahulu.
  • Jika Anda sudah terlanjur mengonsumsi suplemen serat, maka sebaiknya meningkatkan asupan air putih menjadi paling tidak adalah 10 gelas dalam sehari. Karena ada beberapa jenis suplemen serat yang malah bisa membuat keadaan sembelit atau susah buang air besar menjadi semakin parah.
  • Melakukan olahraga dengan teratur sebanyak 2-3 kali dalam seminggu. Olahraga ini bermanfaat untuk membantu mengurangi tekanan yang terjadi pada pembuluh darah halus. Dan tekanan ini terjadi disebabkan karena kita terlalu lama duduk atau terlalu lama berdiri.
  • Jika Anda ingin buang air besar, maka jangan menundanya. Namun sebaliknya, jika Anda tidak ingin buang air besar maka jangan paksakan diri untuk pergi ke toilet.

Penyakit wasir terbagi menjadi dua jenis yakni adalah wasir dalam dan wasir luar. Jika wasir mengalami pembesaran, maka akan ada benjolan atau tonjolan yang keluar dari dalam lubanganus. Dan tidak demikian halnya dengan penyakit wasir dalam. Pada penyakit wasir dalam yang biasanya muncul adalah pendarahan. Jika pembuluh darah vena di liang anus semakin membesar, maka semakin tipis juga dinding pembuluh darahnya. Dinding vena yang semakin tipis ini akan menjadi semakin lebih cepat pecah. Pecahnya dari dinding vena pada lubang anus yang bisa menimbulkan gejala dari buang air besar berdarah pada penyakit wasir. Dan darah yang menetes setelah buang air besar serta darah yang keluar adalah darah yang warnanya merah segar.

Jika penyakit wasir ambeien tidak segera diobati, maka akan membesar. Wasir ambeien obat yang bisa digunakan adalah berupa krim dengan penggunaan dioleskan untuk membantu membuat keadaan pembuluh vena yang mengalami pembengkakan bisa pulih kembali. Krim ini digunakan selain mengonsumsi obat oral. Tujuan dari menggunakan krim oles ini adalah untuk membantu memperbaiki pembuluh darah balik yang mengalami pembengkakan. Namun, tidak semua stadium wasir bisa dibantu dengan menggunakan krim oles ini.

Hidup tertib wasir bisa Anda lakukan dengan cara minum obat secara teratur dan buang air besar dengan teratur setiap harinya. Paling tidak dilakukan sekali dalam sehari. Agar proses buang air besar menjadi lebih lancar, maka tinja yang ada di dalam tubuh juga harus lunak. Untuk itulah mengapa kita memerlukan asupan makanan yang mengandung serat. Serat bisa didapat dari buah. Dan selain dari menu sayuran dan buah-buahan, Anda perlu mengonsumsi air putih secukupnya dalam sehari 2 liter. Karena jika kekurangan air putih maka akan menyebabkan tinja menjadi padat dan menjadi keras. Dan untuk membantu menimbulkan dorongan buang air besar maka lakukanlah olahraga dengan teratur.

OBAT PENGHILANG KUTIL DI KELAMIN - Humanpapilloma virus kelamin (disebut juga dengan HPV) adalah infeksi menular seksual (IMS) yang paling sering. Terdapat lebih dari 40 jenis HPV yang dapat menginfeksi daerah kelamin laki-laki dan perempuan. Jenis HPV ini juga dapat menginfeksi mulut dan tenggorokan. Kebanyakan orang yang terinfeksi dengan HPV bahkan tidak tahu mereka memilikinya. HPV tidak sama dengan herpes atau HIV (virus penyebab AIDS). Kesamaannya adalah semuanya dapat ditularkan saat berhubungan seks, tetapi menyebabkan gejala dan masalah kesehatan yang berbeda.


Tanda dan gejala yang berkaitan dengan HPV :

Kutil pada kelamin biasanya muncul sebagai benjolan kecil atau kelompok benjolan di daerah kelamin. Bentuknya bermacam-macam, bisa berukuran kecil atau besar, menonjol atau rata, atau berbentuk seperti kembang kol. Petugas kesehatan dapat mendiagnosis kutil hanya dengan melihatnya di daerah kelamin saat pemeriksaan. Kutil dapat muncul dalam beberapa minggu atau bulan setelah hubungan seksual dengan pasangan yang terinfeksi, Namun, kutil dapat juga muncul bahkan jika pasangan yang terinfeksi tidak memiliki tanda-tanda kutil pada kelamin. Jika tidak diobati, kutil pada kelamin bisa hilang, tetap tidak berubah, atau bisa juga bertambah besar ukurannya. Perlu diingat bahwa kutil pada kelamin tidak akan berubah menjadi kanker.

Kanker serviks sulit untuk dideteksi pada tahap awal, karena biasanya tidak memiliki gejala yang parah. Untuk alasan ini, penting sekali bagi perempuan melakukan skrining rutin untuk kanker serviks. Tes skrining dapat menemukan tanda awal penyakit sehingga penyakit tersebut dapat diobati secara dini, sebelum berubah menjadi kanker.

Hal yang berkaitan dengan kanker HPV mungkin tidak memiliki tanda atau gejala hingga parah dan sulit diobati. Ini termasuk kanker vulva, vagina, penis, dubur, dan kepala dan leher.

Bagaimana seseorang bisa tertular HPV?

HPV dapat ditularkan melalui hubungan seks, paling sering selama berhubungan seksual lewat vagina dan dubur. HPV juga dapat ditularkan melalui seks oral dan hubungan kelamin-kelamin. HPV dapat ditularkan pada pasangan seksual yang sama, meskipun pasangan seks yang terinfeksi tidak menunjukkan tanda atau gejala apapun.

Seseorang bisa terinfeksi HPV selama bertahun-tahun karena dia berhubungan seksual dengan orang yang terinfeksi. Kebanyakan orang yang terinfeksi tidak menyadari bahwa mereka terinfeksi atau menularkan virus terhadap pasangan seksualnya, karena tidak ada gejala yang timbul. Terdapat juga kemungkinan seseorang terkena lebih dari satu jenis HPV.

Bagaimana HPV dapat menyebabkan kutil kelamin dan kanker?

Infeksi HPV pada kulit dapat menyebabkan sel normal pada kulit menjadi tidak normal. Kamu tidak dapat melihat atau merasakan perubahan sel tersebut. Pada kebanyakan kasus, tubuh melawan HPV secara alamiah dan sel yang terinfeksi akan kembali normal. Tetapi pada beberapa kasus, ketika tubuh tidak dapat melawan HPV, HPV bisa menyebabkan perubahan bentuk yang terlihat berupa kutil kelamin atau kanker. Kutil dapat terlihat dalam beberapa minggu atau bulan setelah terkena HPV. Kanker sering terjadi setelah beberapa tahun terkena HPV.

Bagaimana cara mencegah terinfeksi HPV?

Ada beberapa cara untuk menurunkan risiko terkena infeksi HPV:

• Vaksin
Vaksin dapat melindungi pria dan wanita terhadap beberapa jenis virus HPV yang biasa menimbulkan penyakit. Vaksin ini diberikan sebanyak tiga kali. Penting sekali untuk diingat bahwa untuk mendapatkan perlindungan terbaik, seseorang harus mendapatkan tiga dosis vaksin secara lengkap. Vaksin tersebut paling efektif jika diberikan sebelum seseorang melakukan hubungan seksual pertama.

• Kondom
Bagi mereka yang memiliki aktivitas seksual rutin, kondom dapat digunakan untuk menurunkan risiko tertular HPV. Untuk mendapatkan hasil yang efektif, kondom harus digunakan pada setiap berhubungan seksual, dari awal sampai akhir. Kondom juga dapat menurunkan risiko terkena penyakit lainnya yang berkaitan dengan HPV, seperti kutil pada kelamin dan kanker serviks. Akan tetapi, HPV dapat menginfeksi daerah yang tidak diliputi oleh kondom , sehingga kondom mungkin tidak sepenuhnya melindungi terhadap HPV.

• Setia pada Pasangan
Orang juga dapat menurunkan risiko terkena HPV dengan berkomitmen memiliki satu pasangan saja; membatasi jumlah pasangan seks, dan memilih pasangan yang tidak memiliki atau sedikit pasangan seks sebelumnya. Tetapi, bahkan orang dengan hanya satu pasangan seks seumur hidup pun bisa mendapatkan HPV. Dan, hal itu tidak dapat menentukan bahwa pasangan yang sudah aktif secara seksual di masa lalu pada saat ini terinfeksi. Karena cara pasti untuk mencegah HPV adalah menghindari semua aktivitas seksual.

Apakah ada tes untuk HPV?

Pap Smear (tes Pap atau sitologi) adalah cara untuk memeriksa sel yang diperoleh dari leher rahim (serviks) atau anus. Tujuan utama dari Pap smear adalah untuk mendeteksi kanker atau sel tidak normal yang dapat menyebabkan kanker leher rahim atau kanker anus. Pada pemeriksaan ini juga dapat ditemukan kondisi non-kanker, seperti infeksi dan peradangan. Dapatkan tes untuk HPV pada penyedia layanan kesehatan.

If you’ve spent any time reading my writing in the past, or living as my neighbor, or being Facebook or Twitter friends with me, you know that I’m rarely at a loss for words. I have lots of thoughts and feelings, more than enough opinions, and passion that runs through me like a river. After Drew was diagnosed with CF back in 2010, I remember looking at my husband and saying to him, “I don’t know what to say. I don’t know how to tell people.” Now that we are moving, it’s not that I don’t know what to say, but rather that I don’t know how to start or finish.

I met my husband at a bar, or rather on the way to a bar back in 2003. This was before Uber and practically before cell phones when friends or friends of friends would see one another out on a Friday night and all pile into a car, lapping up to make sure everyone fit so that we didn’t have to walk the block to our destination. It wasn’t love at first sight, but intrigue. We connected and then we dated before I broke up with him. He didn’t go away though, and I’m sure glad he didn’t. He was working in Philadelphia, having graduated from NYU with a degree in Actuarial Science - a man who didn’t get as excited about exciting things as I did about non-exciting things, and as a senior in college he was exactly what I was looking for – someone with money to buy my drinks at the bar. When I graduated and moved to New Jersey, he stuck around, taking the train to visit me on the weekends, before we eventually moved in together. I started to commute from Philadelphia to New York every day for work, and he quietly and kindly walked me to the train station every morning and met me back there when I returned home, tired and cranky, every night. We talked about our next adventure, and looked for jobs where we might be able to both live and work in the same city. When he was offered an opportunity in Cincinnati to do marketing research, we decided to embark on that journey and made the move. With no new job in place for myself, I was free to explore the great wide world of…Covington, KY. I cried most days, wanting to go home, but put on a brave face and stood in line at the grocery store doing this thing they did in the Midwest that I was unfamiliar with called “talking to people”. In Philadelphia and New York we just bustle past one another, moving from thing to thing, and this new, slower pace was strange for us. But after a year in Kentucky and my having found myself a job and some new friends, we decided to stay. We bought a house and a year later got married. Our parents thought this was backward but it worked for us. Building a deck as newlyweds would have surely been the beginning of the end, so we did things in reverse at the start.

Then in 2007, we learned that alcohol can be a leading cause of pregnancy. Now married and overjoyed to be expecting, we turned our second of two bedrooms into a nursery, promptly purchased a minivan, and welcomed our precious Ella in June of 2008. I stopped working but never lost the friends that I made during those 3 years. We thought we might return “home” once we had kids, but things were going well with work and we were happy in our neighborhood. Our marriage survived a bathroom remodeling project in 2009 before we decided that we were ready for the suburbs!!  

We moved into our new 4 bedroom home on a Tuesday, then found out on Friday we were expecting again. About 3 weeks later we learned that there were not one, but two babies. We were deep in the middle of a kitchen remodel when exhaustion sunk in. Ella was one and I was enormous. This house in the suburbs felt overwhelming. Drew and Lily were born in March of 2010, and shortly thereafter Ella broke her leg just to make sure we were paying attention.

We were introduced to Cincinnati Children’s that year too. The smell of the NICU isn’t something that ever leaves you. I’ll forever be grateful that we hadn’t left Cincinnati after Ella was born, as Cincinnati was exactly where we were supposed to be when Drew was diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis. I don’t remember a whole lot from 2010. Or 2011. In 2012, Jake came along and we felt complete. And by complete, I mean completely overwhelmed. My head was just far enough above water to breathe, and drink wine.

We had the great pleasure of worrying about how much our preschool choice would influence our kids future, and regularly consider how our parenting style will be described by them in therapy as adults. All jokes aside, we landed at the perfect place for us. Immaculate Heart of Mary has become our home. All four kids went through preschool, and some of them up to 3rdgrade, and the support and accommodations shown to us by both the staff and our friends has been tremendous in the 8 years that we have been attending. Leaving school is one of the hardest parts of our decisions to go. As our first graders sang “God Bless the Open Road” to their 8th grade buddies this morning I dissolved into a puddle.

I set out on a narrow way many years ago
Hoping I would find true love along the broken road
But I got lost a time or two
Wiped my brow and kept pushing through
I couldn’t see how every sign pointed straight to you
That every long lost dream lead me to where you are
Others who broke my heart, they were like northern stars
Pointing me on my way into your loving arms

This much I know is true
That God blessed the broken road
That led me straight to you”

Oh Cincinnati, as much as I never called you home, now that we are moving on I know that God blessed the broken road that led me straight to you. Cue the tears.

Since moving to Cincinnati, we bought our first (and second) house, we got married, we had 4 kids, one with a serious health diagnosis, and have made a billion memories and friends. We’re still married and on the other side of the diagnosis and way more home remodeling projects. People have seen us during our crazy (I say that as though its past tense but it’s very much still present). I’m grateful for neighbors who alerted me to naked wandering toddlers when I had too many to keep track of. I salute friends who showed up with Starbucks and wine, sometimes at the same time, during our darkest days.  We’ve had so many visitors – some who stayed for a while and some who just passed through – and every single one of them has made a mark on our life.

I started my second career here in health advocacy and activism, and I was introduced to a whole new world. The opportunities afforded to me with my colleagues and mentors from Cincinnati Childrens are innumerable. I got to see the world through an entirely different lens and I wouldn’t change any of it. The flexibility of my work has allowed me to share my vision for healthcare improvement with the world while I volunteered as the leader of a girl scout troop or coached a volleyball team in between business trips. Cincinnati pulled out my strength and courage, and carved friends out of the woodwork when I needed them the most.

I met my very best friend here when our paths collided in Cincinnati nearly 11 years ago. She moved from the west around the same time that I had moved from the east and we both landed in this place that moved more slowly. Our shared confusion created comradery that we’ve had to this day. She showed up at 5am to watch Ella when we went to have the twins, and over time graciously adopted my family as her own. She is the Godmother to our youngest and brings junk gifts with her every time she shows up. She left first, about 3 years ago, moving for her husbands job, and I cried and cried. She was the first to know that we made the decision to move a couple of weeks ago, because I needed someone to psych me up before we told the kids and she cheered me on. She’s been our family’s biggest cheerleader, and I wouldn’t know her if it wasn’t for my time in Cincinnati. On this rollercoaster of emotion that is selling a house and buying a house and explaining to kids why we have to go, I was complaining that I was eating nothing but junk and didn’t fit into my jeans anymore. She told me to lean in to the fat. That’s true friendship.

I don’t know what the best or hardest parts of living here have been, but there are lots of memories. Marriage is exciting! Parenting requires wine. Having sick kids is really freaking hard. Going to your friend’s kids funerals is even harder. But is it “living here” that’s handed me these ups and downs or is this just life? I think I’ve learned what it’s like to grow up, and that it’s not easy and it can be a ton of fun. I also don’t know what it means to be “growing up” because it’s not really a thing or a place but a process that leads us home. (Does she mean to heaven? I don’t know, let’s not get sappy.)

I have a friend who either bails me out of every jam I’m in, or laughs with me when I forget to wear shoes to preschool drop off and it’s a non-car line day. I’ve learned where the best karaoke in Anderson Township is on a Tuesday night when a friend pops in to ask if I want to go have a drink. I’m grateful for ATM’s that dispense stamps and McDonald’s who don’t judge when I order milk alone because it’s an easier option than dragging 4 kids into Kroger in the rain. Neighbors have graciously tolerated us playing 90’s hip-hop in our backyard until 2am on an occasional weekend night. I’ve learned of the generosity of my community that shows up every time we need a Girl Scout cookie order or foodbank donation or fundraiser for whatever cause I’ve recently gotten behind. I have friends who take my kids at the drop of a hat when something comes up, and I’ve lost friends who were scared away by this diagnosis that has brought more love and awareness to our lives than I could have ever imagined. I’ve learned that I will never be good at checking the red homework folder, especially not at the end of the school year while trying to sell my house.
In a final quoting of lyrics to describe this bittersweet feeling of our relocation, I was at an event last week where a friend paid tribute to another friend that we had lost too soon with the song “Home” by Philip Philips. It goes “Hold on to me as we go, as we roll  down this unfamiliar road. And although this wave is stringing us along, just know you’re not alone, cause I’m gonna make this place you’re home. Really hoping the “Settle down, it’ll all be clear” part that comes next happens sooner rather than later, but honestly, it just feels like what it’s time to do. Hershey is calling us now, and it’s time to make that place our home.


-->
This could be a letter to the patient man I call my husband whom my colleague respectably refers to as a hero. Maybe this ends up as a blog post or someday I can use it as a commencement speech when I’m a famous healthcare change agent! Or maybe someone will be reading this as my obituary when I actually do not survive this physical move or the days leading up to it. Either way, this is all to say thanks, Cincinnati. You’ve given us more than we could have ever dreamed of. Your kindness and generosity is more than we will ever be able to repay. We may finally purchase something that says “Cincinnati”, or root for the Reds now that we are on our way out. It’s not goodbye, it’s see you later. We’re going home.

          Here's the deal      Cache   Translate Page      
In the middle of June, I wrote a post about Drew's clinic visit and declining lung function. His normal range is mid 90's. At our quarterly check up, his number was down to 85. Before we left for Philadelphia he had dropped down to 79. We decided to treat him with 2 weeks of an oral antibiotic to see if that would help him, thinking that there is probably an infection in his lungs (there's always an infection in his lungs, like literally, but its not always causing a problem), and planned to retest him upon our return. Well, we returned and his lung function is still at 79.

So the big question is what to do. Normally, I would be on board for treatment. But normally he would be "sick" in the more traditional sense - increased cough, decreased appetite and energy level. And none of those things are there. I've used my Orchestra data to tell the story of his health time and time again, and i'm coming up short this time. There is no cough, and there hasn't been for months. His weight is better than its ever been, and his appetite remains unchanged. He is sleeping well and generally happy. Yet his lung function is going down. His doctor suggested that sometimes kids this age aren't able to articulate when they can't quite take as deep a breath, or when they're struggling to clear secretions when they have a more subtle infection going on, stuff that may be less obvious to my naked ear. But I feel like he would have something going on that I would notice, anything, and I don't. Sometimes people with CF just need a tune-up, and I hate prolonging the inevitable if that's what needs to happen. The thing is, I'm not convinced that's what needs to happen. I don't know what the problem is - an infection? increased inflammation? allergies? reflux? I don't know, and the only way that it would seem that we can figure that out is to try different treatment options to see how he responds to them and what makes him better.

The current plan is a steroid burst to see if there is inflammation that we can get under control, and retesting his lung function on Monday morning. We also have an appointment to have a PICC placed on Monday morning following the PFT to start two weeks on IVs if his numbers aren't up. Hopefully one of these things work. Normally I'm annoyed when people try to give me suggestions for how to treat him because I normally feel like I have a pretty good handle on him as an individual, but this time I am at a loss. I don't know whats going on. I don't have data to support any theory of illness or allergy or other inflammation otherwise. I'm open to ideas, thoughts and suggestions so please do send them my way if you have them. Stay tuned!

Recycling Is Broken
Maddie Stone
March 11, 2019

This week, we are writing about waste and trash, examining the junk that dominates our lives, and digging through garbage for treasure.

In Philadelphia, people like to recycle. Together, all 1.6 million of us generate about 400 tons of recyclable material each day. But since last fall, roughly half of the bottles and cans my neighbors and I have placed dutifully curbside in our blue bins every week haven’t made their way to a sorting facility. They’ve gone to one of two waste-to-energy incinerators, where they’re being burned alongside garbage.

The situation, which everyone from local residents to the company operating the trash-burning power plants seems unhappy about, is a microcosm of a crisis that’s been rippling across the country ever since China, once the single-largest buyer for U.S. recyclables, banned the import of two dozen types of “foreign waste” and imposed strict quality standards on the recyclables it’ll accept. Nationwide, municipalities are facing higher costs and being forced to find stopgap solutions, from incinerators to landfills, for recyclables that have nowhere else to go.

Meanwhile, the recycling industry—which operates with next to no federal guidance despite processing a quarter of America’s waste—is in an existential struggle to chart a new path forward for itself.

“We’re approaching a point of reckoning that we have had not to debate in the US for a long time, in terms of how we deal with our municipal solid waste and consumer recyclables,” Kristina Costa, a senior fellow focused on climate change and energy policy at the Center for American Progress, told me. “If as a public policy goal we want to continue encouraging recycling, the time is basically now to have a really serious conversation about what policy changes... need to be put in place.”

Most of us think of recycling as a service our city provides, but in reality it’s a business. There are no national laws governing the industry, which is frequently financed by municipalities. Many cities, like Philly, work with private contractors to collect recyclables and get them sorted and cleaned at material recovery facilities. From there, the paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, and aluminum are sold as commodities to various manufacturers.

Objem: 550 ccm. Nový motocykl.Výkon: 24.0 kW.   Linhai M550L EFi EPS 4x4 EURO 4 - BÍLÁ SPZ Barvy: leskle bílá, leskle černá, leskle červená EPS - posilovač řízení L – prodloužená verze EFI – přímý vštřik paliva Prohlédněte si nabídku pracovních vozíků a přívěsů k této čtyřkolce.    Laťku, kterou již oblíbený Linhai 500 4x4 nasadil velmi vysoko, posouvá model M550L EFI EPS ještě podstatně výš. Moderní agresivní design s tváří predátora, atraktivní hliníková kola, účinný elektrický posilovač řízení,  skvělá ovladatelnost, vysoká užitná hodnota, skvělá ovladatelnost a v neposlední řadě vynikající praktičnost dělají z modelu M550L EFI 4x4 nového favorita střední třídy. Navíc díky prodlouženému rozvoru umožňuje Linhai M550L EPS výrazně pohodlnější jízdu ve dvou. Moderní vstřikování renomované britské značky DELPHI přináší kromě nižší spotřeby a čistšího spalování i spolehlivé startování bez potřeby sytiče a optimální výkon motoru. Perfektní trakci a dokonalý přenos síly zajišťují dva uzamykatelné diferenciály, jeden na přední, druhý na zadní nápravě. M550L EFI EPS se tak stává novým nejlepším pracovně-rekreačním Linhaiem a opět posunuje standardy čtyřkolek v této třídě. - Uzávěrka předního i zadního diferenciálu - ALU kola - 4X4 - Zadní nosič - Naviják 3000lbs + dálkové ovládání - Kryty rukojetí - LED světla - Homologované tažné zařízení Výkonný motor EFI Spolehlivý kapalinou chlazený jednoválec SOHC má dostatek síly pro těžkou práci i svižnou jízdu. O přípravu směsi se stará moderní vstřikování paliva DELPHI. Kromě nižší spotřeby a čistého spalování přináší i bezproblémové startování bez potřeby sytiče a optimální výkon v každé nadmořské výšce. Přenos výkonu zajišťuje spolehlivá automatická převodovka přední kanadské značky CV-Tech s terénní redukcí, neutrálem a zpátečkou; v prudkých kopcích navíc oceníte i účinnou motorovou brzdu. Elektrický posilovač řízení Posilovač řízení usnadňuje ovládání čtyřkolky a přispívá k vysokému komfortu jízdy. Řízení tak vyžaduje jen minimální námahu, a to i v malých rychlostech nebo při otáčení na místě, a ani dlouhá jízda nebo celodenní práce vás neunaví. Posilovač řízení ale nejen zklidňuje jízdu a zlepšuje ovladatelnost čtyřkolky, ale zároveň funguje i jako tlumič nárazů do řídítek. Když přední kolo narazí na skrytý kámen, díru nebo pařez, posilovač pohltí většinu energie a náraz vám nevyrazí řídítka z ruky. Pohon všech kol se dvěma diferenciály Pohon 2x4/4x4 je opatřen hned dvěma elektricky ovládanými diferenciály. Díky 100% uzamykatelnému diferenciálu na každé nápravě vás čtyřkolka spolehlivě dostane z kluzkého bláta, hlubokého bahna, umožní vám s jistotou vyjet, projet, vyšplhat a zdolat téměř cokoli. Toto technicky nejdokonalejší řešení však zároveň zajišťuje snadné a příjemné řízení na rovinkách, při vyšších rychlostech a v zatáčkách, bez tendencí ke šněrování a se zvýšenou životností pneumatik. Stačí jen zastavit a zvolit nejvhodnější konfiguraci. Prodloužený podvozek Vysoká průchodnost terénem a perfektní stabilita v zatáčkách i při rychlé jízdě. Prodloužený rozvor, úžasná stoupavost a obratné řízení: vynikající široký podvozek a tuhý rám s nízkým těžištěm zajišťuje příjemné řízení a snadnou ovladatelnost. Nezávislé zavěšení všech kol s vysokými zdvihy pérování vás nadchne pokaždé, když opět zvítězíte nad terénem, kam jste si předtím ani netroufli. Výkonný čtyřkotoučový brzdový systém vás přesvědčí svojí brzdnou silou, ať potřebujete brzdit z vysoké rychlosti nebo s těžkým nákladem. Moderní osvětlení Moderní LED osvětlení podtrhuje atraktivní design tohoto modelu. LED světla pro denní svícení efektně doplňují agresivní vzhled vysokovýkonných dvojitých projektorových světlometů s duálními čočkami, a společně s LED blikači dávají Linhai M550 dospělý a osobitý vzhled. Stejná pokročilá moderní LED technika s čirou optikou je použitá i u vysoce svítivých 16diodových koncových světel a zadních blikačů pro zvýšenou pasivní bezpečnost. Uzavíratelný zadní úložný prostor Na výletech nebo při každodenní práci oceníte velký uzavíratelný úložný prostor za zadní sedačkou. Vaše věci tak máte neustále při ruce, vždy připravené k použití kdykoli je budete potřebovat. Multifunkční LCD displej Moderní přístrojová deska s přehledným a dobře čitelným modře podsvíceným multifunkčním LCD displejem poskytuje všechny důležité informace: digitální rychloměr, digitální otáčkoměr, ukazatel počtu ujetých km, ukazatel najetých motohodin, indikátor zařazeného rychlostního stupně, indikátor pohonu 2x4 / 4x4, teploměr chladící kapaliny a digitální palivoměr.

          Ο Γλαύκος της Κύπρου φέρνει πιο... κοντά το αέριο της Κρήτης      Cache   Translate Page      
φωτογραφία αρχείου

Η 8η κατά σειρά γεώτρηση που έγινε στην κυπριακή ΑΟΖ από τις εταιρείες ExxonMobil και Qatar Petroleum έφερε στο φως τη μεγαλύτερη ανακάλυψη κοιτάσματος μέχρι σήμερα στη μαρτυρική Μεγαλόνησο. Και μόνο αυτό το γεγονός, είναι από μόνο του σημαντικό, ωστόσο οι εξελίξεις των επόμενων ημερών δείχνουν ότι ίσως η ανακάλυψη του κοιτάσματος του Γλαύκου, να αποτελέσει την αφετηρία για καταλυτικές εξελίξεις που δεν περιορίζονται μόνο στην Κύπρο, αλλά ακουμπούν ολόκληρη την Αν. Μεσόγειο και τη Νοτιοανατολική Ευρώπη.

Ήδη η αμερικανική εταιρεία ExxonMobil –κατά πολλούς ο κύριος βραχίονας της αμερικανικής ενεργειακής πολιτικής– έχει στείλει πολλαπλά μηνύματα τόσο προς την Κυπριακή όσο και προς την Ελληνική Δημοκρατία, δηλώνοντας ισχυρό παρών αλλά και δίνοντας σαφές στίγμα για το μέλλον. Ταυτόχρονα όμως η γεωπολιτική και οικονομική βαρύτητα των εξελίξεων ξεπερνούν το ελληνοκυπριακό δίπολο και αφορούν στον ευρύτερο ρόλο της περιοχής –περιλαμβανομένης και της Ρουμανίας– ως μιας νέας ενεργειακής πηγής τροφοδοσίας, με βασικό και κύριο προορισμό την Ευρώπη.

Σημασία

Σε ό,τι αφορά την ανακάλυψη στον Γλαύκο, που με βάση τις ανακοινώσεις κυμαίνεται μεταξύ 5 έως 8 τρισ. κυβικά πόδια, πρόκειται για την τρίτη ανακάλυψη εντός της κυπριακής ΑΟΖ, όπου έχουν επίσης ανακαλυφθεί η Αφροδίτη με 4,5 τρισ. κυβικά πόδια και η Καλυψώ (απομένει να επιβεβαιωθεί και να γίνουν οι ανακοινώσεις από τις εταιρείες ΕΝΙ και Total 3,7 τρισ. κυβικά πόδια).

Η ανακάλυψη στον Γλαύκο, η δεύτερη που πραγματοποίησε η ExxonMobil μετά την αποτυχία στο στόχο Δελφύνη, κρατά ζεστό το ενδιαφέρον της αμερικανικής εταιρείας, η οποία ήδη δήλωσε ότι ενδιαφέρεται για νέες γεωτρήσεις τόσο εντός του τεμαχίου 10 που της έχει παραχωρηθεί, όσο και σε άλλους στόχους σε τεμάχια που δεν έχουν παραχωρηθεί σε άλλη εταιρεία. Το γεγονός από μόνο του, ενέχει εκτός από οικονομική, επιχειρηματική και πολιτική σημασία, με δεδομένο ότι για το μέγεθος της ExxonMobil οι συγκεκριμένες ποσότητες που βρέθηκαν στο Γλαύκο δεν αποτελούν μεγάλη ανακάλυψη. Εντούτοις, οι Αμερικανοί όχι μόνο δεν περιορίζονται στο αέριο που βρέθηκε αλλά επιπλέον ετοιμάζονται και για τους επόμενους στόχους: με βάση την εκτίμηση που υπάρχει στην κυπριακή πλευρά, εκτός από το τρέχον ερευνητικό πρόγραμμα, η ExxonMobil αναμένεται να προχωρήσει σε επιβεβαιωτικές γεωτρήσεις που θα ανοίξουν τον δρόμο για την εμπορική εκμετάλλευση πιθανόν το 2020 και αυτό έχει τη δική του σημασία και για την Ελλάδα.

Το μήνυμα

Για ποιο λόγο έχουν σημασία οι σχεδιασμοί της ExxonMobil για την Κύπρο; Αυτό το εξήγησε ο αντιπρόεδρος της αμερικανικής εταιρείας Tristan Asprey στο πλαίσιο του Delphi Forum, όπου δήλωσε ότι η Ανατολική Μεσόγειος περιλαμβανομένης και της Ν.Α. Ευρώπης και ειδικά της Ρουμανίας, αποτελεί περιοχή προτεραιότητας και ενδιαφέροντος. Οι χώρες που εστιάζει ο αμερικανικός κολοσσός είναι Κύπρος, Αίγυπτος, Ρουμανία και Ελλάδα. “Βλέπουμε τη Νοτιοανατολική Ευρώπη ως μια νέα βασική πηγή ενέργειας για την Ευρώπη, στην οποία η ενδογενής παραγωγή θα βαίνει μειούμενη τα επόμενα χρόνια”, ανέφερε το υψηλόβαθμο στέλεχος της αμερικανικής εταιρείας.

Ο ίδιος εξέφρασε την ελπίδα ότι θα ολοκληρωθεί γρήγορα η επικύρωση των συμβάσεων για την παραχώρηση των δύο τεμαχίων στα δυτικά και νότια της Κρήτης, που, όπως είπε, αποτελούν δύο μεγάλες περιοχές, τις οποίες η ExxonMobil ανυπομονεί μαζί με τους συνεταίρους της (Total και ΕΛΠΕ) να ξεκινήσει τις έρευνες μόλις ολοκληρωθεί το τυπικό της παραχώρησης και παραλάβει τα γεωφυσικά δεδομένα. Χρονικά ο κ. Asrpey έκανε λόγο για έναρξη των ερευνών εντός του 2019. Αυτό σημαίνει ότι ενδεχομένως η αμερικανική εταιρεία να θελήσει να συνδυάσει την παρουσία των γεωτρύπανων στην Κύπρο το 2020, προκειμένου στη συνέχεια να ξεκινήσει το πρώτο πρόγραμμα και στην Κρήτη.

Πρακτικά, δηλαδή, η ανακάλυψη του Γλαύκου, που τόνωσε το ενδιαφέρον των Αμερικανών για την περιοχή, φέρνει εξελίξεις και στα ελληνικά κοιτάσματα, υπό τον όρο βεβαίως να κινηθούν εγκαίρως οι διαδικασίες.

Καθυστέρηση και υπόσχεση

Και αυτό διότι βρίσκεται ακόμη σε εκκρεμότητα η κύρωση της σύμβασης της κοινοπραξίας Total, ExxonMobil, ΕΛΠΕ για τα τεμάχια της Κρήτης, από το Κοινοβούλιο. Σύμφωνα με πληροφορίες εντός των επόμενων εβδομάδων, μετά την ολοκλήρωση της διαβούλευσης, αναμένεται η έγκριση της Μελέτης Περιβαλλοντικών Επιπτώσεων, ενώ αμέσως μετά η σύμβαση θα πάει στο Ελεγκτικό Συνέδριο. Σύμφωνα με πηγές του υπουργείου Ενέργειας, θα καταβληθεί κάθε προσπάθεια (και για αυτό ενημερώθηκαν και οι εκπρόσωποι της κοινοπραξίας) ώστε η σύμβαση να πάει στη Βουλή πριν το καλοκαίρι. Δεν είναι τυχαίο, άλλωστε, ότι μετά το Delphi Forum ο υπουργός ενέργειας Γ. Σταθάκης μεταβαίνει την επόμενη εβδομάδα στην καρδιά της αμερικανικής πετρελαϊκής βιομηχανίας το Houston για να συμμετάσχει σε πετρελαϊκό συνέδριο όπου θα συμμετάσχουν επίσης ο Γ. Λακκοτρύπης, υπουργός ενέργειας της Κύπρου και ο Γιουβάλ Στάινιτζ υπουργός Ενέργειας του Ισραήλ.

Γεωπολιτική σημασία

Άλλωστε οι διεργασίες και οι ανακαλύψεις έχουν τεράστια γεωπολιτική βαρύτητα με δεδομένο ότι η ανατολική Μεσόγειος αναδεικνύεται σε νέα μεγάλη εναλλακτική πηγή ενεργειακής τροφοδοσίας για την Ευρώπη. Ανάλογα με τις ποσότητες που θα ανακαλυφθούν μπαίνει το ζήτημα και της αξιοποίησης, είτε μέσω τερματικού είτε μέσω αγωγού. Αυτή τη στιγμή, από τα κοιτάσματα της περιοχής, υπολογίζεται ότι υπάρχουν αδιάθετες ποσότητες 10 τρισ. κυβικά πόδια από το Λεβιάθαν του Ισραήλ, καθώς επίσης και οι νέες ποσότητες στον Γλαύκο και την Καλυψώ (από 5 έως 12 τρισ. κυβικά πόδια) στην Κύπρο, για τις οποίες θα αποφασιστεί εάν θα δημιουργηθεί τερματικό στην Κύπρο ή θα προχωρήσει η λύση του αγωγού East Med. Οι αποφάσεις θα συναρτηθούν από τις εξελίξεις, τις πιθανές νέες ανακαλύψεις και τις επιλογές των αγοραστών.

          Can anyone use two of these '71 Sprite/Midget Wheels? (3 replies)      Cache   Translate Page      
Hi all,

Does anyone need two of these older Ro-Style wheels? Rick Fisk identified them yesterday as only available back in 1971 on Sprites and Midgets, so we guess they are rather rare. I have a 76 Midget with the standard Ro-style wheels most of us have on later Midgets. Back in 1977, my Dad brought these home from some junk yard as he thought they matched my Midget's wheels. They didn't. I wound up putting 145SR13 German Metzeler snow tires on them as the car was my daily commuter back then. The snow tires are still on them and the rims are painted black. I'd be happy to trade these two for two of my regular Ro-style wheels (see below). I live just outside Philadelphia, so I hope someone in my region might be able trade. If not, they'll just stay in my garage as emergency spare wheels.

Regards,

Richard
