LA ACCION HUM ANA (ECOPORTAL)

¡Alerta! Peligran las praderas marinas

Estos ecosistemas sirven de cobija y alimento a peces y moluscos de gran valor comercial, a reptiles como a las tortugas marinas, y también al manatí y al dugongo entre los grandes mamíferos. Sin embargo, esas zonas submarinas cubiertas de pasto se encuentran en peligro por culpa de la acción humana. (mais…)

SANDHAM MEMORIAL CHAPEL (REDTREETIMES)

Stanley Spencer

I have a feeling that most Americans don’t know much about the English artist Stanley Spencer, who lived from 1891 until 1959.  I have to admit that I knew very little until stumbling across a book of his unique paintings.  However, our ignorance doesn’t detract from the man’s greatness or his fame as one of the greatest British painters.  Some maintain that he is their greatest Modern painter.

JUAN GODOY (ANA ECHEVENGUÁ)

As portas da percepção de Juan Godoy

Ana Echevenguá
“… Não importa se só tocam O primeiro acorde da canção A gente escreve o resto Em linhas tortas Nas portas da percepção Em paredes de banheiro Nas folhas que o outono leva ao chão Em livros de história Seremos a memória Dos dias que virão (se é que eles virão)…”. Humberto Gessinger


Estive no Espaço Cultural da Megastore da Livrarias Catarinense, para apreciar a exposição Neo Impressionismo Abstrato, de Juan Godoy. São 12 telas impressionantes. Belas, incisivas e inesquecíveis. (mais…)

O império do consumo


Esta ditadura da uniformização obrigatória impõe, no mundo inteiro, um modo de vida que reproduz os seres humanos como fotocópias do consumidor exemplar. 
Por Eduardo Galeano
A produção em série, em escala gigantesca, impõe em todo lado as suas pautas obrigatórias de consumo. Esta ditadura da uniformização obrigatória é mais devastadora que qualquer ditadura do partido único: impõe, no mundo inteiro, um modo de vida que reproduz os seres humanos como fotocópias do consumidor exemplar.

THE BOOKSHELVES AND THE PERSONS (http://eclecticbooks.wordpress.com)

Learning everything you need to know about

a person by looking at

their bookshelves

I always love going to people’s houses for the first time, because there’s just so much you can learn about a person by looking at their living environment. By the same token, I’m often a little shy to have people in my own home because it makes me feel vulnerable and exposed, like I’m letting them see a bit too much of my psyche. (mais…)

INTERESTING FACTS (by http://sometimes-interesting.com)

The Most Contaminated Place on Earth: Chelyabinsk-40

We’re quite familiar with the lore of various secret United States nuclear facilities; their storied history and operations being shrouded in secrecy has fascinated us for decades. What we seldom hear about are the secret nuclear laboratories and test facilities of our greatest Cold War opponent – the former U.S.S.R. One particular installation – Chelyabinsk-40 – was the first Soviet plutonium production complex and the site of three separate massive nuclear incidents. Until recently this area was not on maps and the Russian government denied its existence. No visitors were allowed under any circumstances, and all residents worked in the facility (later referred to as Chelyabinsk-65).  With the fall of the Soviet Union in the early 90′s, Chelyabinsk-40 was finally publicly acknowledged by the Russian government and granted town status.  In 1994, Chelyabinsk-65 was finally given a name: Ozyorsk.  (mais…)
