Sírios e Libaneses no Rio Grande do Sul 1890-1940

The paper deals with the memory and history of the Syrian-Lebanese immigration to Rio Grande do Sul State/Brazil, seeking to situate the middle-eastern immigrants into the political, economic and social dynamics of the state, during the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The period studied illustrates to the reader the places where these immigrants were placed, that is, in distinct areas of Rio Grande do Sul, for example: settlements and new settlements areas, southern border, central and northern regions, coastal, capital and western border of the state.

Memory, the Self, and the Universe

91-Year-Old Lebanese-American Poet, Philosopher, and Painter Etel Adnan on Memory, the Self, and the Universe

“The universe is itself the glue that keeps it going, therefore it is memory in action and in essence, in becoming and in being. Because it remembers itself, it exists. Because it exists, it remembers.”

91-Year-Old Lebanese-American Poet, Philosopher, and Painter Etel Adnan on Memory, the Self, and the Universe
Oftentimes during meditation, I am visited by flash-memories dislodged from some dusty recess of my unconscious — vignettes and glimpses of people, places, and events from long ago and far away, belonging to what feels like another lifetime. They are entirely banal — the curb of a childhood sidewalk, mid-afternoon light falling on a familiar building in a familiar way, the smell of a leather armchair on a hot summer day — but in their banality they intimate the existence of the former self who inhabited those moments, a self that seems so foreign and so remote, yet one to which I am forever fettered by this half-conscious memory.

Dia dos Pais...

Queridos AMICOR,
Estava procurando algo para celebrar esse dia, quando recebi uma mensagem com uma poesia de nosso Mario Quintana, enviado pela Gláucia (RJ), Diretora da SBC.

As Mãos do Meu Pai

As tuas mãos têm grossas veias como cordas azuis
sobre um fundo de manchas já cor de terra
— como são belas as tuas mãos —
pelo quanto lidaram, acariciaram ou fremiram
na nobre cólera dos justos...

Porque há nas tuas mãos, meu velho pai,
essa beleza que se chama simplesmente vida.
E, ao entardecer, quando elas repousam
nos braços da tua cadeira predileta,
uma luz parece vir de dentro delas...

Virá dessa chama que pouco a pouco, longamente,
vieste alimentando na terrível solidão do mundo,
como quem junta uns gravetos e tenta acendê-los contra o vento?
Ah, Como os fizeste arder, fulgir,
com o milagre das tuas mãos.

E é, ainda, a vida
que transfigura das tuas mãos nodosas...
essa chama de vida — que transcende a própria vida...
e que os Anjos, um dia, chamarão de alma...

Mário Quintana, in 'Esconderijos do Tempo'

Don't Have Time to Exercise? Do This for 10 Minutes Markham Heid Aug 10, 2017 TIME Health For more, visit TIME Health. In the fitness world, the word “miracle” gets thrown around like a two-pound dumbbell. But when it comes to high-intensity interval training (HIIT), a very short workout, the benefits you’ve heard about are both legitimate and—we’ll say it—miraculous. HIIT is a combination of brief, very-high intensity bursts of cardio exercisefollowed by equal or longer periods of rest. Think 30 seconds to a minute of sprinting, followed by a minute or two of walking or slow jogging.... mais »
