Through participating in this event our community will get a taste of The Arcanum Experience: Learning through constructive critiques, which is just one of the many things that happen inside the hallowed magical doors! The Arcanum Photo Critique and Make-Over event is a Google+ Hangout On Air, open to the public, scheduled for Monday February 10th at 7pm. *To Participate:* You must submit a single candidate photo by Sunday, February 9th to be considered for the random selection.  You can submit any photo to The Arcanum Google+ page at @111508817579086020312 . Since you already applied to The Arcanum - we truly hope you'll submit a photo to be critiqued. If not, no worries at all!   Either way, you can watch the live event! :) And if you're wondering when the doors will officially open for The Arcanum, the answer is as soon as magically possible!  We're doing a test run right now with all the Masters to work out any kinks.  Also, we are a _bit_ (!!) overloaded with Apprentice applications, so it will take a while to ramp up.  It may be a good opportunity for you to pop over and update your application at www.TheArcanum.com ! Thank you!The Arcanum Photo Critique and Make-Over with Rick Sammon, Varina Patel, Dave Cross, and me!2014-02-11 04:00:00898

Mountain Photos7,798Come enjoy! Have fun and learn from the successes and mistakes of your fellow G+ photographers! Don't worry if you don't have a photo to submit! *You are the jury and you choose the winners by giving +1's for your favorite mountain photos!* _*Monthly Theme*_ –Photos of *mountains with a peak*. _I invite you to show us your experiment with how you capture scenes with mountain peaks. It can be a snow-capped or cloud-capped mountain peak, or a mountain peak captured at dawn, or at sunset, or at night! Peaks reflected on a lake or covered with trees! It can be one under starry sky, or under moon, or even under bright blue Milky Way, or can be under totally crystal-clear skies! Show us how the peaks add drama to your mountain scenes, how a peak affects the mood of your mountain shot. Let us see your surprising scenes from around the globe._  Remember, as a rule, all the photos entered must have *a mountain with a peak* as the main subject. Photos of a piece of land without a mountain view are ineligible. IMPORTANT!

However, they will agree in advance not to run as a competitior in the next month's contest *in order to give chance to other participants*! The same way, the *1st, 2nd and 3rd Place Winners of the last month* are kindly asked not to run as a competitor in this month's contest but are most welcomed to vote for their favorite entries as a jury! _*Schedule*_ – Contest starts at 11:00 PM Eastern European (Istanbul) Time October 2nd, 2013 Wednesday when participants can add photos to this event page, and ends at 11:00 PM (EET), October 7th, 2013 Monday.

Trever McGhee96,032Please accept my apologies if your one of the few that got hit by a bug in their system! This is my first event and for some reason Google notified some people 20 times and for some their system was planning on doing that within their calendars for the next 5 years...every single day...20 times a day...how it did or why it would set peoples calendars up to be notified 20 times a day...I don't know. Hopefully they've got it corrected, if not please let me know. I know I wanted to help peoples wishes come true but not in that way, The goal of this event my Birthday is give you as many of my Birthday Wishes as you require...why because you deserve it. My wish is here is to connect you to the thoughts/ the energy of thousands of people around the world all making a Birthday Wish for themselves from the heart... to you. I like to Imagine the energy from all those making a wish and the energy coming from the ones that come true(the smiles..the laughter..the tears...the overflowing of pure joy) being connected to you to power your own wish to come true. Thanks to some theories about Quantum Physics there's no space between you or me or them...topped with the fact they tell us energy is never destroyed, it's gotta go somewhere as each new person joins in, so why not to you to empower your wish to come true sooner rather than later. Imagine being connected to thousands....millions of others all making wishes...all hoping that your wish comes true for it will help empower their wish. They've documented several cases of where positive thoughts have made a difference, so why not around someones birthday who can then share it with everyone whose connected to that person...so me for this event. It's never been done before, so why not now....be part of it. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain as we go day by day, year by year building this community of wish granters. Now think of an image that represents your wish and then take2seconds to think of that image at least once a day until it comes true. Have fun with it, there's no right or wrong way when you come from the heart. Please let us know as each wish comes true...yes each wish...there's no law that says you're only granted one wish...you deserve everyone of them when they come from the heart..when that wish fills you with the passion for life... *****UPDATE at first I was focused on getting as many people as possible for this so that everyone had more energy but now after reading your comments..hearing your passion for life...the numbers have gone completely out the window for each one of you have brought your own unique energy to the equation that's priceless....THANK YOU In my world Birthday wishes can be made everyday of the year because it's a celebration everyday that your here to share this with. So today I Celebrate being 44 and 1 day old.Update to fix Google Bug for "It's My Birthday and my wish is for your wishes to come true!!"2012-08-17 12:00:00203

Hoje esteve a jantar no Terra o "Vocalconsort Bad Sackingen" liderado por Marcus Mackowiak. No final da refeição presentearam-nos com este lindo trecho musical, como forma de mostrarem o apreço pelo restaurante, comida e staff. Vão estar, dia 7 de Maio de 2016, na Sé Patriarcal de Lisboa às 21.00 horas para um concerto, de entrada livre, e com obras de Scarlatti, Palestrina, Messiaen, Poulenc, entre outros. Não percam, que vale mesmo a pena.
