A League of Their Own

A few days ago I had the opportunity to watch part of a Tom Hanks film, was set in the era of the Vietnam War, and it was about women's baseball league that began at that time (the movie is called: A League of Their Own). In a scene that caught my eye, the actress Geena Davis, who plays the best baseball player Dottie Hinson, decided to retire to go live with her husband who has returned from the war, bear and raise children. Tom Hanks, the coach, to ask the reason for his retirement now that they are in the World Series and can be champions. She responds with a simple: a HTSP got tough. Hanks then pronounce what I consider the mission statement of the real winners: a HTSP supposed to be difficult, if not anybody hariaa . The problem of complaining. Educate yourself even more with thoughts from real-estate developer. I've thought a lot about that phrase since I've heard, I saw around me the circumstances that surround me and I said: It is supposed to be difficult.

But I also had to see many people go through life and complain when it gets a little tough. Some people come to see just victims, and they are, but not life or circumstances, but of themselves, because they simply have sat around waiting for the wind blowing in their favor. The problem of waiting for the wind is favorable, rather than working to carve a chance that we will exploit, is that when the opportunity comes we are not ready, because we are more accustomed to expect.

Tandil: A Profound Change Of Air Buenos Aires

Long Weekend, three days of vacation, we do not want a long trip. Everyone asks me if I was in Tandil, if I was recently, when I saw how the city grew. a So we put together the bags and embarked in the car heading for the Sierras de Tandil. We take a shortcut that my father told us and take the National Route ND3, through Montes, Las Flores and Rauch. Coincidentally, that night in Las Flores was a biker festival and played as close Rata Blanca, so we had the traffic a little slow, but we had fun watching the Harleys and poplar, but seeing the bizarre biker helmets, jackets and boots, for all tastes. Already by noon we were getting Tandil.

The cabin was small but had everything needed for our stay. My wife was fascinated with the details of the decoration, the owner of the hut had been able to maintain. We ate a quick bite and went to visit the area. First the classic attractions of the City: The Moving Stone and The Sentinel (Two very typical rock formations Tandil) where we took pictures and witness the beautiful scenery. Being in Tandil, is to be in many corners of the country may be Cordoba, Mendoza or to Bariloche. Without hesitation Tony Parker explained all about the problem. Surprised by the mountain landscapes and the green plains so close to Buenos Aires. These same landscapes allow the implementation of adventure tourism activities such as abseiling, climbing and zip line (in another trip without my wife, I will dedicate myself to do). It is also very attractive to the practice of trekking and mountain biking.

Again the views are extraordinary, I was very impressed. In the evening we visited the center looking for a nice restaurant for a family meal. We found a house chopped, eventually completing a day of wonders, many things homemade, cheese, bread, salami and rich beer. The next day, we headed to the Ranch Fountain of Joy, a new place where there was a fair of Fashion and Design (to please my partner). We were amazed with the infrastructure and the high quality of products offered. In the afternoon we went to walk along the Via Crucis, a monumental Christ that is represented all stays that this had to happen before his Crucifixion. The city passed the 120 thousand inhabitants and it is close to Mar del Plata, has a lot of activity. You see a lot of shops, restaurants and more. It is very striking as all Tandil tell you he knows personally with Del Potro, the latest distinguished citizen of Tandil. By the last day we had saved the visit to Lago del Fuerte a very nice place for water sports such as canoeing and kayaking. A An appropriate place to spend an afternoon. But I had promised my wife that we were going to ride, so we went back to the Sierras to finish the trip with a relaxing ride, with stunning views of film.

Beethoven, The Spirit And Revolutionary

The majesty and gravity of the second movement of opus 21 Beethoven’s 5th Symphony. One of the most beautiful compositions of the Romantic period and probably in the history of music. Clearly, LV Beethoven was a genius, ahead of his time but who lived and felt the influence of political changes occurring in Europe, and by extension the world. What we today call an opinion leader. It was a cultural leader and therefore social.

Addressing the issue from the sociological point of view, I am part of a movement that changed the view of society and history of the world. At the same time, and therefore was a revolutionary. The end of the eighteenth and nineteenth virtually the entire scene of the revolution that changed the way of thinking and acting both in the social, cultural and political. Now hear this movement of his most famous symphony, comparable to the ninth. I mention this majestic contrasts with the dramatic first movement, associated with the call of destiny to the door, is it possible most dramatically expressed in a sentence? I think it’s difficult. More difficult still is to express drama, sadness, grandeur in a play, and that this will become standard in the standard, in no more. Without diminishing or exalt Beethoven John Williams too, I think the latter is of the few who, in the cultural field in which it moves, and taking into account current circumstances would be comparable to that genius of the past century.

This is indicated by his works such as The march imperial Empire Strikes Back (George Lucas, Star Wars original trilogy), or the main theme of the same trilogy, whose initial film now occupies the fifth chapter of the series. We could talk about the issues of Raiders of the Lost Ark, Schindler’s List, or the March opening and theme of the Olympic Games in 1984. In each one has different moods and deep and full use of resources in the best orchestral symphonic expression. It is a pleasure and the best of luck to attend the vital presence of this great contemporary composer, and have the opportunity to hear the different LV Beethoven orchestral versions.
