Cinq façons de sauver la Terre

Le réchauffement climatique est en marche. Comment éviter la catastrophe annoncée ? Sollicités par la NASA, les plus grands savants ont imaginé quelques solutions... surprenantes!

Le réchauffement climatique est devenu une préoccupation mondiale. Pour tenter de sauver la planète avant qu'il ne soit trop tard, la Nasa a organisé en 2006 une conférence sur le climat. Les plus grands scientifiques de la planète, dont le Prix Nobel de chimie Paul Crutzen (1995), étaient invités à proposer leurs "solutions" pour limiter l'augmentation de la température... Dans Cinq moyens de sauver le monde, Jonathan Barker présente cinq projets parmi les plus ambitieux. Des scénarios qui peuvent paraître délirants, mais qui sont peut-être la seule chance de préserver les grands équilibres écologiques. Le réalisateur a suivi ces chercheurs passionnés aux États-Unis, en Australie, en Écosse et en Angleterre.

Qui A Tué Alexandre Le Grand?

Ce film démêle un obscur mystère des temps antiques : la mort douteuse d'un des plus grands leaders politiques de l'histoire : Alexandre le Grand.

Aidés des plus grands spécialistes du monde, nous cherchons à découvrir la vérité sur sa mort précoce à 32 ans.

Le décès d'Alexandre est-il dû à l'abus d'alcool ou à la maladie ?

Fut-il assassiné ou existe-t-il encore une autre explication jamais considérée auparavant ?

Le mystère commence avec ces deux versions différentes des derniers jours d'Alexandre.

Ils concourent tous deux à dire que le jeune homme mit douze jours à mourir et qu'il était alors à peine capable de se traîner jusqu'à son lit de mort.

Une des deux versions raconte qu'Alexandre mourut de fièvre après avoir trop bu.

L'autre est plus sinistre : Alexandre aurait subi une longue agonie avant de mourir d'empoisonnement, victime d'une conspiration.

Assassinat ou maladie ?

C'est ce que tentent de comprendre l'enquêteur John Grieve et son équipe de spécialistes.

Tel un détective, Grieve analyse les preuves historiques, psychologiques et scientifiques pour reconstituer ses sinistres jours sinistres à Babylone en 323 av J.C. Nous revivons les scènes de la jeunesse d'Alexandre, alors éduqué par le célèbre philosophe Aristote.

Nous le voyons aussi au faîte de sa gloire, conquérant les Perses, couronné Pharaon en Egypte et acclamé comme fils de Zeus. Même alité, il continue à organiser sa prochaine invasion de l'Arabie.

Il se trouve alors au sommet de son pouvoir politique, mais n'est pas invincible.

Lica de Guzman, 10 ans, chante "Prendre un enfant par la main"

























Prendre un enfant par la main
Pour l'emmener vers demain,
Pour lui donner la confiance en son pas,
Prendre un enfant pour un roi.
Prendre un enfant dans ses bras
Et pour la première fois,
Sécher ses larmes en étouffant de joie,
Prendre un enfant dans ses bras.

Prendre un enfant par le cœur
Pour soulager ses malheurs,
Tout doucement, sans parler, sans pudeur,
Prendre un enfant sur son cœur.
Prendre un enfant dans ses bras
Mais pour la première fois,
Verser des larmes en étouffant sa joie,
Prendre un enfant contre soi.

Prendre un enfant par la main
Et lui chanter des refrains
Pour qu'il s'endorme à la tombée du jour,
Prendre un enfant par l'amour.
Prendre un enfant comme il vient
Et consoler ses chagrins,
Vivre sa vie des années, puis soudain,
Prendre un enfant par la main

En regardant tout au bout du chemin,
Prendre un enfant pour le sien.

Controlling Our Food

"The French documentary, called “The world according to Monsanto” and directed by independent filmmaker Marie-Monique Robin, paints a grim picture of a company with a long track record of environmental crimes and health scandals."

This is a long documentary, but well worth the time spent watching it. In general, genetically modified crops are harmful to the environment as it is, but imposing them along with their accompanying poison "Roundup" on the whole world can have catastrophic and even cataclysmic consequences. These people (giant corporations have the same status as individual people without the same responsibilities as people have, thus cannot be prosecuted nor punished when they break the law or commit mass slaughters and destructions) must at all costs be stopped.

Torusphere I

This is my second Bryce 5 3D animation. It took a lot of work and two sleepless nights... Creating the animation to get the results I had visualized took a few hours, rendering the one-minute animation to video took my computer sixteen hours... Editing it, finding the right music, fitting the video to the music and making it (more or less) synchronized with the music, then rendering it into a format that doesn't distort it took a whole day and half the night. More than 48 hours of almost non-stop work! I really need a new computer, a supercomputer (64 bits processor is my dream) with a gigantic amount of storage space, so that I don't have to wait for sixteen hours just to render a minute's worth of simple animation - each frame took a bit less than a minute to render, but some of my pictures which I would love to animate take much longer to render, and there are 30 frames per second, so if I were to make some of the animations I have in mind, it would take my computer over a week to render them to video, if not longer... Unfortunately, even a new and ordinary computer that is more powerful than my old machine is beyond my very modest income, especially as we now are two living on it.

Ah well, I will have to continue being patient and terribly frustrated (while my computer slaves away to render my animations to video, I can't use it for anything else, so I cannot continue creating all those pictures and animations which I have in mind, nor can I connect to the web), and the limitations of my old computer allow me to make only very short and very simple animations. It is always very painful for an artist not to have access to the materials he or she needs to fully express himself or herself, to fully allow his or her talent to blossom and skills to grow. But enough of my sob-story, I hope you enjoy my little beginner's creation! :)

My first 3D animation!

Until I watched Freetutorials' video on Bryce animation on March 28 and 29 - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8WYg1swDORI - I had been completely intimidated by the animation functions in Bryce - and reading user's manuals makes my mind go completely blank... So, after watching that video carfully several times, I gave it a go, and here is the result. I looped it several times to make it fit the length of the music file.

Gāyatrī Veda Mata





Image Hosted by ImageShack.us







Gāyatrī Veda Mata Mantra

Om bhūr bhuvah svah
tat savitur varenyam
bhargo devasya dhīmahi
dhiyo yo nah pracodayāt




Originally the personification of the mantra, the goddess Gāyatrī is considered the veda mata, the mother of all Vedas and the consort of the God Brahma and also the personification of the all-pervading Parabrahman, the ultimate unchanging reality that lies behind all phenomena. Gayatri Veda Mata is seen by many Hindus to be not just a Goddess, but a portrayal of Brahman himself, in the feminine form. Essentially, the Goddess is seen to combine all the phenomenal attributes of Brahman, including Past, Present and Future as well as the three realms of existence.[citation needed] Goddess Gāyatrī is also worshipped as the Hindu Trimurti combined as one. In Hinduism, there is only one creation who can withstand the brilliance of Aditya and that is Gāyatrī. Some also consider her to be the mother of all Gods and the culmination of Lakshmi, Parvati and Sarasvati.

Gāyatrī is typically portrayed as seated on a red lotus, signifying wealth. She appears in either of these forms:

* Having five heads with the ten eyes looking in the eight directions plus the earth and sky, and ten arms holding all the weapons of Vishnu, symbolizing all her reincarnations.
* Accompanied by a white swan, holding a book to portray knowledge in one hand and a cure in the other, as the goddess of Education.

What I find interesting is the similarity of names between Greek (and hence western) Gaïa, goddes of the earth, and Gāyatrī. Just a thought.

The Lady of Shalott







Image Hosted by ImageShack.us


The Lady of Shalott


On either side the river lie
Long fields of barley and of rye,
That clothe the wold and meet the sky;
And through the field the road run by
To many-tower'd Camelot;
And up and down the people go,
Gazing where the lilies blow
Round an island there below,
The island of Shalott.

Willows whiten, aspens quiver,
Little breezes dusk and shiver
Through the wave that runs for ever
By the island in the river
Flowing down to Camelot.
Four grey walls, and four grey towers,
Overlook a space of flowers,
And the silent isle imbowers
The Lady of Shalott.

By the margin, willow veil'd,
Slide the heavy barges trail'd
By slow horses; and unhail'd
The shallop flitteth silken-sail'd
Skimming down to Camelot:
But who hath seen her wave her hand?
Or at the casement seen her stand?
Or is she known in all the land,
The Lady of Shalott?

Only reapers, reaping early,
In among the bearded barley
Hear a song that echoes cheerly
From the river winding clearly;
Down to tower'd Camelot;
And by the moon the reaper weary,
Piling sheaves in uplands airy,
Listening, whispers, " 'Tis the fairy
The Lady of Shalott."

There she weaves by night and day
A magic web with colours gay.
She has heard a whisper say,
A curse is on her if she stay
To look down to Camelot.
She knows not what the curse may be,
And so she weaveth steadily,
And little other care hath she,
The Lady of Shalott.

And moving through a mirror clear
That hangs before her all the year,
Shadows of the world appear.
There she sees the highway near
Winding down to Camelot;
There the river eddy whirls,
And there the surly village churls,
And the red cloaks of market girls
Pass onward from Shalott.

Sometimes a troop of damsels glad,
An abbot on an ambling pad,
Sometimes a curly shepherd lad,
Or long-hair'd page in crimson clad
Goes by to tower'd Camelot;
And sometimes through the mirror blue
The knights come riding two and two.
She hath no loyal Knight and true,
The Lady of Shalott.

But in her web she still delights
To weave the mirror's magic sights,
For often through the silent nights
A funeral, with plumes and lights
And music, went to Camelot;
Or when the Moon was overhead,
Came two young lovers lately wed.
"I am half sick of shadows," said
The Lady of Shalott.

A bow-shot from her bower-eaves,
He rode between the barley sheaves,
The sun came dazzling thro' the leaves,
And flamed upon the brazen greaves
Of bold Sir Lancelot.
A red-cross knight for ever kneel'd
To a lady in his shield,
That sparkled on the yellow field,
Beside remote Shalott.

The gemmy bridle glitter'd free,
Like to some branch of stars we see
Hung in the golden Galaxy.
The bridle bells rang merrily
As he rode down to Camelot:
And from his blazon'd baldric slung
A mighty silver bugle hung,
And as he rode his armor rung
Beside remote Shalott.

All in the blue unclouded weather
Thick-jewell'd shone the saddle-leather,
The helmet and the helmet-feather
Burn'd like one burning flame together,
As he rode down to Camelot.
As often thro' the purple night,
Below the starry clusters bright,
Some bearded meteor, burning bright,
Moves over still Shalott.

His broad clear brow in sunlight glow'd;
On burnish'd hooves his war-horse trode;
From underneath his helmet flow'd
His coal-black curls as on he rode,
As he rode down to Camelot.
From the bank and from the river
He flashed into the crystal mirror,
"Tirra lirra," by the river
Sang Sir Lancelot.

She left the web, she left the loom,
She made three paces through the room,
She saw the water-lily bloom,
She saw the helmet and the plume,
She look'd down to Camelot.
Out flew the web and floated wide;
The mirror crack'd from side to side;
"The curse is come upon me," cried
The Lady of Shalott.

In the stormy east-wind straining,
The pale yellow woods were waning,
The broad stream in his banks complaining.
Heavily the low sky raining
Over tower'd Camelot;
Down she came and found a boat
Beneath a willow left afloat,
And around about the prow she wrote
The Lady of Shalott.

And down the river's dim expanse
Like some bold seer in a trance,
Seeing all his own mischance --
With a glassy countenance
Did she look to Camelot.
And at the closing of the day
She loosed the chain, and down she lay;
The broad stream bore her far away,
The Lady of Shalott.

Lying, robed in snowy white
That loosely flew to left and right --
The leaves upon her falling light --
Thro' the noises of the night,
She floated down to Camelot:
And as the boat-head wound along
The willowy hills and fields among,
They heard her singing her last song,
The Lady of Shalott.

Heard a carol, mournful, holy,
Chanted loudly, chanted lowly,
Till her blood was frozen slowly,
And her eyes were darkened wholly,
Turn'd to tower'd Camelot.
For ere she reach'd upon the tide
The first house by the water-side,
Singing in her song she died,
The Lady of Shalott.

Under tower and balcony,
By garden-wall and gallery,
A gleaming shape she floated by,
Dead-pale between the houses high,
Silent into Camelot.
Out upon the wharfs they came,
Knight and Burgher, Lord and Dame,
And around the prow they read her name,
The Lady of Shalott.

Who is this? And what is here?
And in the lighted palace near
Died the sound of royal cheer;
And they crossed themselves for fear,
All the Knights at Camelot;
But Lancelot mused a little space
He said, "She has a lovely face;
God in his mercy lend her grace,
The Lady of Shalott."


Alfred Lord Tennyson

Maurane - Différente Quand Je Chante

























Les Manuscrits de Qumrân

Également connus sous le nom de « Manuscrits de la Mer Morte », les manuscrits de Qumrân sont une série de parchemins et de fragments de papyrus retrouvés, pour une petite partie seulement, dans des jarres disposées dans des grottes se trouvant tout autour du site de Qumrân. La découverte officielle de ces 900 manuscrits a été faite entre 1947 et 1956 dans onze grottes.

Les manuscrits sont généralement attribués, mais sans preuve définitive, à la communauté juive dissidente des Esséniens, un groupe Juif dissident de l'antiquité.

La découverte majeure de Qumrân est le rouleau d'Isaïe A, devenu mondialement célèbre. C'est le plus ancien manuscrit Hébreu complet connu d'un livre biblique : le Livre d'Isaïe. Le texte est écrit en 54 colonnes sur 17 feuilles de cuir cousues ensembles bout à bout, d'une longueur totale d'environ 7,30 m. Il a été confectionné au IIe siècle av. J.-C..

Les manuscrits bibliques hébreux de la Mer Morte sont donc de plus de mille ans antérieurs aux plus anciens textes connus jusqu’alors. Leur intérêt est donc considérable pour la science biblique.
