George Gershwin studied for four years under the tutelage of Joseph Schillinger, an artist and mathematician whose compositions were based on rigid mathematical principles. The lessons were done on graph paper with such titles as “Rhythmic Groups Resulting from the Interference of Several Synchronized Periodicities” and “Groups With The Fractioning Around the Axis of Symmetry.” Schillinger also tutored Tommy Dorsey, Vernon Duke, and Benny Goodman. The first work Gershwin composed under Schillinger's influence was the Cuban Overture below.

George Gershwin - Cuban Overture
"For many lovers of classical music, George Gershwin is regarded as the American musician par excellence.
As Ives already did before him, he worked diverse influences into his music.
In his 1932 Cuban Overture, Gershwin took his inspiration from the rousing rhythms of the Caribbean.
Whether this gorgeous piece is popular or serious music is no longer debated.
As Leonard Bernstein said, who is represented in this Berliner Philharmoniker concert by the Symphonic Dances from his ever-popular West Side Story: "There is only good or bad music…"
(Berliner Philharmoniker @ the Berlin Philharmonie, 8 September 2012.)

Originally entitled Rumba, it was a result of a two-week holiday which Gershwin took in Havana, Cuba in February 1932.
Gershwin composed the piece in July and August 1932.___George Gershwin studied for four years under the tutelage of Joseph Schillinger, an artist and mathematician whose compositions were based on rigid mathematical principles.

Magellan Sets Out on 20 September 1517

Portuguese navigator Ferdinand Magellan sets sail from Spain in an effort to find a western sea route to the rich Spice Islands of Indonesia. In command of five ships and 270 men, Magellan sailed to West Africa and then to Brazil, where he searched the South American coast for a strait that would take him to the Pacific.

He searched the Río de la Plata, a large estuary south of Brazil, for a way through; failing, he continued south along the coast of Patagonia. At the end of March 1520, the expedition set up winter quarters at Port St. Julian. On Easter day at midnight, the Spanish captains mutinied against their Portuguese captain, but Magellan crushed the revolt, executing one of the captains and leaving another ashore when his ship left St. Julian in August.

On October 21, he finally discovered the strait he had been seeking. The Strait of Magellan, as it became known, is located near the tip of South America, separating Tierra del Fuego and the continental mainland. Only three ships entered the passage; one had been wrecked and another deserted. It took 38 days to navigate the treacherous strait, and when ocean was sighted at the other end Magellan wept with joy.

He was the first European explorer to reach the Pacific Ocean from the Atlantic. His fleet accomplished the westward crossing of the ocean in 99 days, crossing waters so strangely calm that the ocean was named “Pacific,” from the Latin word pacificus, meaning “tranquil.” By the end, the men were out of food and chewed the leather parts of their gear to keep themselves alive. On March 6, 1521, the expedition landed at the island of Guam.

Ten days later, they dropped anchor at the Philippine island of Cebú–they were only about 400 miles from the Spice Islands. Magellan met with the chief of Cebú, who after converting to Christianity persuaded the Europeans to assist him in conquering a rival tribe on the neighboring island of Mactan. In fighting on April 27, Magellan was hit by a poisoned arrow and left to die by his retreating comrades.

After Magellan’s death, the survivors, in two ships, sailed on to the Moluccas and loaded the hulls with spice. One ship attempted, unsuccessfully, to return across the Pacific. The other ship, the Vittoria, continued west under the command of Basque navigator Juan SebastiÁn de Elcano. The vessel sailed across the Indian Ocean, rounded the Cape of Good Hope, and arrived at the Spanish port of SanlÚcar de Barrameda on September 6, 1522, becoming the first ship to circumnavigate the globe.

The good news is we don’t have to keep building our country around car ownership. Technology has redefined entire industries around a simple reality: you no longer need to own a product to enjoy its benefits. With Netflix and streaming services, DVD ownership became obsolete. Spotify has made it unnecessary to own CDs and MP3s. Eventually, we’ll look at owning a car in much the same way.

A full shift to “Transportation as a Service” is finally possible, because for the first time in human history, we have the tools to create a perfectly efficient transportation network.

...the night on which we fall.

Thank you, +Glen Brady I am so happy to see the response you are getting to your wonderful poetry. It is so well deserved.

The Perception of Beauty

Turn, slow as a leaf in the stirred water,
As lines straining against the Earth to fly;
Shall never that a swan so white a town
Be candles enough to turn a mind back
For every coin we give to sell ourselves?,
The light that burns within a web's center,
Until it snaps and falls in the strange frost;
It is too soft to hold upon, too cross'd.
The boat we draw away with to splendor
Is marked with scars down to any soul of us;
We ride it on the music of a rain,
That falling down the stairs of leaves at dusk,
Masks us in a light too deep for passion,
So beauteous the night on which we fall.

Glen Brady

Earth from Space: New York City after the attacks, Sep. 12, 2001

In this composite image you can see New York City with a smoke plume still emanating from Ground Zero, one day after the 9/11 attacks, imaged by the Enhanced Thematic Mapper Plus (ETM+) aboard Landsat 7. The images were taken September 12th, 2001 at 11.28am local time.

Today is the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks (https://goo.gl/eT0C4j). The attacks on Tuesday, September 11, 2001 killed 2,996 people and injured over 6,000 others. In this image you can see a smoke plume still emanating from Ground Zero (https://goo.gl/PlRSN8) on Sep. 12, 2001, one day after the attacks.

Take a look here for an image of New York City on a better day:

Technical Data

For those interested, here the technical data for this image. The image is a pansharpened ETM+ Band 3-2-1 (natural color) image. The resulting colors are more or less natural but the brightness levels look unnatural because the panchromatic band of Landsat 7 (unlike that of Landsat 8) is also sensitive to the near infrared, changing the way the image looks. Image scale is 15 meters/pixel.

Watch as air traffic ceases on 9/11. I remember.

#neverforget  

Thank you again, +Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum 

On this day in 2001, terrorists hijacked four airliners, crashing two into the World Trade Center towers and one into the Pentagon. At 9:45 am ET, FAA Command Center closed U.S. airspace for the first time in history. This video - http://bit.ly/1qxRdnt - shows the rapid grounding of air traffic across the U.S., and redirection of incoming international traffic. Within a few hours, all commercial air traffic was grounded. Passengers overtook hijackers on the fourth airliner, United Flight 93, before the plane crashed near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.___Watch as air traffic ceases on 9/11. I remember.

With high-performance supercomputers, seismologists can capture three-dimensional effects to more precisely detect, locate, and identify a nuclear explosion. Just in case you were wondering.

We think of nations today as elemental almost, immovable. Yet look at any city of Mitteleuropa and you'll see the many different names it has had as borders and regimes have shifted with the sands of time. Nations come and go. Cities endure.

Despite the images of smiling children and progressive transportation and architecture, this 1939 Soviet tourist map with its ominous red border looks poised to engulf the world.

Fabulous find! Thank you, +The Old Map Gallery 

It may be unsettling to think about doing in retrospect, but this Soviet tourist map, published in English shows all the different destinations you could visit. Later in the same year, 1939, Stalin would enact the fine print of the German-Soviet nonaggression pact and invade Poland, meeting German soldiers doing the same. #oldmapgallery #worldwartwo #vintagemaps #oldmaps ___Despite the images of smiling children and progressive transportation and architecture, this 1939 Soviet tourist map with its ominous red border looks poised to engulf the world.

being in a culture but not of it — is a paradoxical emotion, stretched between longing and fear: we long for inclusion, acceptance, and equal belonging, but fear we’d be hurt, rejected, or violated in the vulnerable-making act of making our longing manifest. The fear takes over — especially if it carries the momentum of previous violations, be they personal or inherited — and erects a protective wall that only further separates us from the very thing we long for.

Because the weather in space is frightful...

Thank you, +Elizabeth Therese Niwel 

Tom Berger, director of NOAA's Space Weather prediction center, discusses the role the GOES-R and DSCOVR satellites play in forecasting space weather and warning of hazardous effects on Earth.

You will like to read that
DSCOVR space weather data now available!
Real-time data from DSCOVR and space weather forecasts are now available through the Space Weather Prediction Center. An archive of DSCOVR data is also accessible to users, who will be able to visualise and download the data.

GOES-R ready to join DSCOVR; will provide more complete picture of space weather.

Set to launch on November 4, 2016, GOES-R will also help scientists monitor space weather.

Tom Berger of NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center explains how these two satellites work together.

The DSCOVR operational transition highlights the value of the NOAA and NASA team that delivered the mission to space. The partnership between the research and operational Agencies has worked well for many years and will continue with NASA providing research and NOAA providing operational space weather observations.
