Upa Neguinho
Elis Regina


Upa neguinho na estrada
Upa pra lá e pra cá
Vigi que coisa mais linda
Upa neguinho começando a andar
Upa neguinho na estrada
Upa pra lá e pra cá
Vigi que coisa mais linda
Upa neguinho começando a andar
Começando a andar, começando a andar
E já começa a apanhar

Cresce neguinho me abraça
Cresce me ensina a cantar
Eu vim de tanta desgraça mas muito eu te posso ensinar

Capoeira, posso ensinar
Ziquizira, posso tirar
Valentia, posso emprestar
Liberdade só posso esperar








Music: Elis Regina - Upa Neguinho - Ensaio - MPB Especial - Lyrics

Poesia: Alberto Girri - Cuando la idea del yo se aleja - El compañero de los pájaros - Elegía en vida - Link




Cuando la idea del yo se aleja

De lo que va adelante
y de lo que sigue atrás,
de lo que dura y de lo que cae,
me deshago,
abandonado quedo
del fuerte soplo,
del suave viento,
y quieto, las espaldas
vueltas las manos hacia arriba,
apoyo en el suelo,
corazón
abjurando de armas, faltas,
de oraciones donde borrar las faltas,
blando organismo, entidad
que ignora cómo decir: “Yo soy”
y en la enfermedad y la muerte,
vejez y nacimiento,
ya no encontrarán lugar,
como no lo encontraría el tigre
para meter su garra,
el rinoceronte el cuerno,
la espada su filo.

Antes hacía, ahora comprendo.


De "Obra poética IV"





El compañero de los pájaros

Como el amor
                             que se posa
cada día sobre la ramita
                       que puede morir

Así brota tu amor
lozano
           vigoroso de sol
compañero de los pájaros...


De "W.C.W. :Doce versiones"







Elegía en vida

Intenta dibujar un león
y logra un perro,

cuando siente hambre cree
calmarla dibujando pasteles,

si dibuja una serpiente
le agrega patas,

al concentrarse
en un grano de mostaza, cabeza
de alfiler que crece en arbusto,
dibuja una higuera, lo estéril,
leño seco destinado al fuego.

                De preguntársele por qué,
hallaría que son confesiones, desajustes
documentando sus fallas,
                                                    un orden visual
para simbolizarlas,

                         primero la imagen
de su débil fuerza en las ambiciones,
luego la de su vocación por lo ilusorio,
luego la de su placer de deformar,

                               y en conjunto la imagen
de su extravío, incapacidad
de ofrecer frutos legítimos,
                       tal un árbol que no los da
así haya estado siempre junto al agua.


De "Obra poética IV"

NASA: US - Washington - Growth in Washington. District of Columbia - Power Outages in Washington. DC Area - July 2012

Our nation’s capital is part of an urban area that crosses state lines. This expansive urban area has experienced substantial growth in the past few decades, but different municipalities have managed growth in different ways, as these images indicate.
The Thematic Mapper on the Landsat 5 satellite acquired the top image on August 27, 1984, and the bottom image on August 22, 2011. Forests and fields appear in shades of green, and urban areas appear in shades of beige and tan. The most noticeable growth occurs around Dulles International Airport, where beige has overtaken green in many places.
Dulles International Airport straddles the border between two of Virginia’s fast-growing counties: Loudon in the Northwest, and Fairfax in the southeast. Between 2000 and 2010, the U.S. Census found, Fairfax County’s population grew 11.5 percent. Loudon County’s population grew 84.1 percent, making it the fastest-growing county in the state. South of the airport, bordering Loudon and Fairfax Counties, Prince William County experienced a population growth of 43.2 percent during the same time period.
To give an idea of the scale of development in this region, Tysons Corner was built on farmland in the 1960s. Located 13 miles (21 kilometers) from Washington, Tysons Corner was conceived as an “edge city” on the outskirts of town. Designed for an automobile-rich society intent on shopping, its malls boasted something like 167,000 parking spaces. Now the urban area has grown far past it, and developed areas extend beyond the airport.
West of Washington, and north of Tysons Corner, the Potomac River separates northern Virginia from Maryland. North of the river lies Maryland’s Montgomery County. Around the time that developers built Tysons Corner, officials in Montgomery County also designed a community, but instead of cars and shopping malls, it was based on a concept known as “wedges and corridors.”
A plan adopted in 1964 aimed to concentrate commercial and residential development along transportation corridors, and leave the wedges between these corridors open with undeveloped land. A 2002 report from the Joint Center for Housing Studies of Harvard University described Montgomery County’s plan as “one of the most sophisticated systems of growth management in the United States.” The different approach to growth management can be seen around Rockville, where urbanized areas did not expand so substantially between 1984 and 2011.
Although its growth did not match that of Loudon or Prince William Counties in Virginia, Montgomery County did experience growth comparable to that of Fairfax. Based on estimates from October 2009, Montgomery County’s population grew 11.3 percent between 2000 and 2010, and it was Maryland’s most populous county.

These before and after images from NASA’s Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership satellite show the power outages in the clear skies over Washington, DC and Baltimore that occurred as a result of a rare, fast-moving thunderstorm system on Friday, June 29th.
Extensive power outages in Washington, DC and Baltimore are visible in these images. Clouds obscure the lights of Philadelphia and other areas north and east of Baltimore. Of particular interest is the loss of light to the north and west of Washington, DC along the 270 and 66 interstate highways and Maryland route 267.
Known as a “derecho,” the storm combined intense lightning and rain with hurricane-force winds that were upwards of 60 miles per hour (~96.5 kilometers per hour). It killed 22 people and caused some 4.3 million households to lose power for days.
Derecho is the Spanish word for straight and the storm raced from west of Chicago across Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C.
According to the National Weather Service, the gigantic windstorms of a derecho are as powerful as tornados, but the winds don’t twist, instead driving in a straight line. To be classified as a derecho, the swath of wind damage must extend more than 240 miles and the storms are powered by hot, humid weather.
These images were taken with the day/night band of S-NPP’s Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS). Suomi NPP was launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base on October 28th, 2011 and is the result of a partnership between NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and the Department of Defense.

NASA: US - Brush Fires in Eastern Oregon - July 2012



Brush Fires in Eastern Oregon

On July 11, high temperatures and strong winds fueled brush fires in eastern Oregon. The Long Draw Fire, located ten miles (16 kilometers) west of Basque, was discovered on July 8, 2012, after a lightning strike. By the morning of July 12, the fire was 30 percent contained, but it had charred 455,029 acres (1,841 square kilometers) of short grass and sagebrush. The Miller Homestead fire, about 60 miles to the northwest, started on the same day and had burned 60,000 acres by July 12.
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASA’s Aqua satellite captured this image of the fires on July 11, 2012. Red outlines indicate hot spots where MODIS detected unusually warm surface temperatures associated with fires. Land surfaces covered by dry vegetation is tan. Green areas are irrigated or near bodies of water. The Long Draw fire's burn scar is gray. Clouds obscure most of the smoke from Long Draw fire, but a large cloud of smoke is visible north of the Miller Homestead fire.
