This Video is a year old..The New Arkansas Video can be seen on my Friends Channel: www.youtube.com www.youtube.com Arkansas Birds fall from the Sky..Rivers of a certain Fish Dying ..."Earthquakes, heat waves, floods, volcanoes, super typhoons, blizzards, landslides and droughts killed at least a quarter million people in 2010 - the deadliest year in more than a generation." BEEBE, Ark.-- Friday night, ringing in the New Year took on a whole different meaning for the citizens of Beebe. Around 11:30 pm, enforcement officers with Arkansas Game and Fish Commission began getting reports of dead black birds falling from the sky in the city limits of Beebe. Officers estimated that over 1000 birds had fallen out of the sky over the city before midnight. Most of the birds were dead, but some were still alive when officers arrived. The blackbirds fell over a one-mile area in the city. AGFC wildlife officer Robby King responded to the reports and found hundreds of birds. "Shortly after I arrived there were still birds falling from the sky," King said. King collected about 65 dead birds that will be sent to the Arkansas Livestock and Poultry Commission lab and the National Wildlife Health Center lab in Madison, Wis. The AGFC has flown over the area to gauge the scope of the event. There were no other birds found outside of the initial area. AGFC ornithologist Karen Rowe said that strange events similar to this one have occurred a number of times across the globe. "Test results ...
A TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow of a travel blog to Malagos, Philippines by TravelPod blogger Arnobs66 titled "Enamored With Davao's Endangered Eagle". TravelPod is a company of TripAdvisor™. Arnobs66's travel blog entry: "You must have heard about him or seen his face somewhere - in magazines, newspapers, TV and the Internet. But you should see him in the flesh. He's an attractive male viewed up close and personal. Endowed with features that cause many heads to turn for a closer look, his animalistic appeal make him one of the most sought-after attractions in Davao City, a bustling metropolis in the southern part of the Philippines. Standing about a meter tall and weighing approximately five kilograms, he's a sober-looking creature who sports a patrician profile highlighted by a pointed, curved beak and luminous bluish eyes. On his pate rests a headdress of light brown feathers that form a crest when raised, giving him a war god's appearance. His dark brown dorsal feathers, thick and neatly tucked, complement a fluffy white chest. His broad wings, spanning about two meters, allow him to rise almost vertically to maneuver between trees, branches and vines. Gifted with a squared-off tail, powerful legs and sharp claws, he's an excellent hunter who's always ready for the kill. He feeds on a wide variety of forest species that include squirrels, snakes, civet cats, hornbills, and occasionally bats and monkeys. His primary prey, however, is the flying lemur. Pag-asa , which ...

According to www.huapala.org the authorship of "Ninipo" is uncertain. The song has been attributed to both King David Kalakaua and Queen Lili`uokalani. The author wove many threads into this brief song of two verses and a chorus, with references to Hawaiian myth, geography, botany, and ornithology. The meaning is clearly many layered, with only the author and perhaps a few confidantes knowing the "real" meaning. Whatever the layers, the poetry is rich and the song seems perfect for Valentine's Day, with the first line of the chorus: "Wooing, ever wooing with love." I first heard the song performed by Ledward Kaapana www.ledkaapana.com on his great "Black Sand" CD. My version is very much based on his. Composer Dennis Kamakahi performed the song as a vocal on his "Pua`ena" CD as well. We're enjoying a stay in magnificent Kailua, O`ahu, HI, and I shot this clip in "our" backyard. Our host works in stained glass, the opening title features one of his pieces. The guitar is an Epiphone Masterbilt EF-500M, tuned to taropatch, low to high DGDGB D. The face shot was taken with a Panasonic Lumix TS1, the closeup with a Flip Ultra HD. I recorded the audio on a Zoom H2, eq'ed in Adobe Audition 2 to reduce the wind noise, and added reverb using the Glaceverb plugin in Edius Neo Booster.
Vultures are scavenging birds, feeding mostly on the carcasses of dead animals. Vultures are found on every continent except Antarctica and Oceania. A particular characteristic of many vultures is a bald head, devoid of feathers. Research has shown that the bare skin may play an important role in thermoregulation. A group of vultures is called a wake. The word Geier (taken from the German language) does not have a precise meaning in ornithology, and it is occasionally used to refer to a vulture in English, as in some poetry.
Johann Heinrich Schmelzer von Ehrenruef (1620 - 1680) Sonate Unarum Fidium - Sonata Quarta 1664 Trio Romanesca Nigel North - Theorbo John Toll - organ / harpsichord Andrew Manze - baroque violin Harmonia Mundi :::::::::::: Cryptext in his works The six Sonatae unarum fidium were probably originally intended for Schmelzer's own uses as a performer. The words unarum fidium simply translate as "for one violin." To turn a deaf ear to their other resonances, however, would be to mistake Schubert's Schwanengesang for ornithology. The usual meaning of fides is "trust," "faith" and therefore "loyalty" and "oath of allegiance." When used in the plural (as here), it can denote a gut-strung musical instrument, usually a lyre or lute: poets such as Virgil and Horace used the term in this way and Schmelzer here applies it (for the first time?) to the violin. It is highly likely that many of Schmelzer's contemporaries were not familiar with this rather obscure poetic usage, although, when reading the dedication of the Sonatae to Cardinal Carlo Caraffa, they only had to count the number of words beginning with fid- to appreciate the composer's conceit. Et si Unitatem Fidei requiris, non Fidei tantùm, sed & Fidium exhibeo, dum hasce unarum Fidium Sonatas, Professionis meae tesseram in publicum produco. ("If it is Unity of Faith you seek, I give you not just one Faith but [more than one/a Violin] by publishing these Sonatas [of several Faiths/for One Violin] as a token of this Declaration ...
www.esotericteaching.org In the Western countries, we have very little contact with Vedic culture, Vedic spirituality and Vedic literature. This is by design. Western governments, going all the way back to the Roman Empire, have maintained a policy of denial toward Vedic culture in general, and Vedic spiritual life in particular. Actually India was the jewel of ancient civilization, and even after the collapse of the worldwide Vedic Empire about 4500 years ago, it had tremendous influence on early Western culture through the spice and silk trade routes. Vedic brahmanas often traveled to Egypt, Greece and other centers of Western culture to teach, and their influence shows up in many classical Greek works. We arent sure exactly how much influence Vedic culture had on the Greeks, because the Romans went out of their way to destroy it. They burned thousands of Greek books containing references to Eastern wisdom; they destroyed the ancient Library of Alexandria—twice—and all this was part of a strategy to cover up the influence of India on their culture. We only know about this because the Romans were such good administrators that they kept detailed records of the books they burned, and why. This anti-Vedic bias stains Western culture, politics and education down to the present day. As a result, Western students of spirituality are handicapped when it comes to understanding and interpreting the great significance of the Vedic spiritual ontological writings. The Western ...
