A Poem and a Letter by Simón Bolívar and a Lock of His Hair Are Sold in London

first_imgBy Dialogo March 24, 2010 it was terrible A manuscript poem and a signed letter by Simón Bolívar and a lock of his hair were sold in London, as part of the auction of the private collection of the widow of a British military man who fought alongside the Latin American liberator. The collection, which offers interesting information about the private life of the hero of South American independence through numerous documents and letters, was acquired by an anonymous buyer for 30,000 pounds (33,300 euros or 45,000 dollars). The Bonhams auction house offered to the public the collection of Mary English, the wife of James Towers English, a general of Bolívar’s British Legion who died fighting in the Americas and whose legacy helps to know better the events that led to the independence of the Spanish colonies. The poem was written around 1826, at the time of Bolívar’s greatest power, and the text demonstrates that the liberator was conscious of the great weight he carried on his shoulders. “Happy is he who is satisfied with his humble fortune. Free of the proud yoke to which I am bound, He lives in the obscurity in which Heaven has hidden him. Blessed is he who is content with his humble fortune.” Along with the poem, the collection includes a letter Bolívar wrote to English in 1821 to express his condolences for the death of her husband and his regret for the difficulties she was suffering in Venezuela, promising that the Colombian government would help her.last_img read more

Ronaldo rescues a point for Juventus at Roma

first_imgTopics : Edin Dzeko was back on the Roma front line after his move to Juventus fell through, the Bosnian having missed last week’s trip to Verona which ended in a forfeit defeat for the capital side for fielding an unregistered player.Instead new Juventus signing Alvaro Morata got his first start after his move from Atletico Madrid earlier this week.But the champions were pushed hard by the hosts with Veretout opening from the spot in the 31st minute after a Rabiot handball.The French midfielder added a second shortly before the break just after Ronaldo had equalized for the first time. Another handball, this time Lorenzo Pellegrini’s, resulted in Juventus being awarded a penalty allowing Ronaldo to slot in.The Portuguese got his second with 20 minutes to when his head met a Danilo cross seven minutes after Rabiot was sent off for a second yellow card. Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice to salvage a point for 10-man Juventus in a 2-2 draw at Roma as Napoli hammered Genoa 6-0 in Serie A on Sunday.Champions Juventus were trailing 2-1 and a man down after an hour at the Stadio Olimpico after a Jordan Veretout brace for the hosts and Adrien Rabiot’s sending off.But a towering Ronaldo header grabbed the equalizer in the 69th minute to avoid handing new Juventus coach Andrea Pirlo a first defeat. ‘A bit misleading’ Hirving Lozano scored twice as Napoli swept past coronavirus-hit Genoa while AC Milan continued their winning run without Zlatan Ibrahimovic with a 2-0 victory against promoted Crotone.”The result is a bit misleading, if we hadn’t scored the second goal quickly in the second half, I would probably have changed the set-up,” said coach Gennaro Gattuso.”In the first half, we suffered a bit, even with a lot of opportunities, we almost conceded a goal. We lacked a little balance, we still have to improve.”Nigerian striker Victor Osimhen got his first start for Napoli, having come off the bench to lift the southerners past Parma in their opener last week.Club-record signing Osimhen again impressed against a Genoa side playing without first-choice goalkeeper Mattia Perin, who tested positive for coronavirus, as did midfielder Lasse Schone.Mexican forward Lozano fired Napoli ahead in the 10th minute in the Stadio San Paolo and Gattuso’s side remained just a goal up at half time.After the break it was one-way traffic with Piotr Zielinski latching onto a clever Osimhen back-heel flick for the second just seconds after the restart.Zielinski then helped set up Dries Mertens for the third just before the hour mark before Lozano again struck following a mix-up in the Genoa defense.Substitute Matteo Politano curled in the sixth with 20 minutes to go to give Napoli a maximum six points after their first two matches.”Last year Osimhen was the player we needed,” said Gattuso. “He didn’t score today, but he did score.”When he attacks we find space. The players look for him, we’re very happy with how he is helping us.” The only bad news for Gattuso was Lorenzo Insigne limping off with a left thigh injury ahead of their clash at champions Juventus next week.Milan meanwhile, without star Ibrahimovic who tested positive for COVID-19, also have injury woes after Croatian striker Ante Rebic fell badly on his left arm.Franck Kessie scored their first goal from the penalty spot just before the break after a foul on Rebic, with Spaniard Brahim Diaz, on loan from Real Madrid, adding a second four minutes later. “The good news is there is no fracture, this decreases the recovery time,” said coach Stefano Pioli of Rebic.”We have injuries, now we grit our teeth. This is a very important week for both the league and the Europa League.”last_img read more

Yoga Club opens in Dominica

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Tweet Dr. Lucia John, PhD, founder of Patanjili Yoga ClubA yoga club, founded by Dr. Lucia John, under the patronage of High Commissioner of India to CARICOM, Shri Gauri Shankar Gupta, the Patanjili Yoga Club has officially opened here.The club was launched on Sunday June 26, 2016, a few days after the celebration of International Yoga Day on June 21 and will operate from the Perfect Health Institute and Wellness Centre at McIntyre Lane, Goodwill.During the launching at the club, Dr. John said yoga has become a worldwide phenomenon however people do not understand the extent of yoga. “Yoga means union, yoga means health, yoga means good attitude, yoga means being inward but we have taken it to be just physical exercises and it’s good that at last the world is going to be putting attention on what yoga really is.”Yoga is what the world needs she added. “That is what we are going to try to do in Dominica, we’re going to try to have yoga in schools, we’re going to try to have yoga with the youth groups, we’re going to try to have yoga in the business places and I’m sure we will see a difference in Dominica.”Therefore what the Patanjili Yoga Club offers is the “totality of yoga”. Club members will be introduced to not only the physical exercises, but also mental and attitude practices. “When we look at the schools, we see what is happening, lots of children have ADHD that is attention deficit hyperactive disorder…applying yoga to these children will help them to get better again; to get them to focus on school and use their school days to learn and to get to the next level,” she said. Thus, the club will also seek to aid in developing writing skills. “When we say yoga we mean mental potential so what we are doing and we are going to be doing it more and more is working with the young people.”This will also help with unemployment on the island she said as writing is the “easiest employment around”. “It may be their own story, it may be someone else’s story, it may be just fiction and help them to publish…help them make some money.” Dr. John also revealed that it is the intention of the Indian High Commissioner to CARICOM to sponsor a group of Dominican teachers to learn yoga in India. They will return as instructors of yoga being able to incorporate it in their schools. “I think this is going to be the best thing that he can offer us because when you have yoga teachers in the schools, it’s different from having people outside the school coming in to teach yoga or to teach any exercise.”Art will also be taught. Shrinivas Kale, member of the steering committee, said in India yoga forms part of their daily life from morning to evening. Persons engage in different parts of yoga throughout the day both knowingly and unknowingly he said. “Yoga has their own benefit and the main aim of yoga is to unite; when we say unite the question is with what, unity is with anyone and everyone and that’s what the meaning of yoga is.”He said yoga also means spiritual uplifting and that occurs when one is physically strong, therefore it is crucial for the body to be strong, effective and preferably disease free. “That’s why yoga has become very popular in the west because it helps to cure a lot of diseases because the aim of yoga is to reduce the disease so that we can increase the focusing…this yoga will help achieve a lot of other things in students, in children, in nation, in country.”This Kale said will help make Dominica a better country as it will lead to harmony in society. “India has their own technology in space, their technology in medicine, their technology in missile industry, technology in ammunition…and how India achieve that is because of the intelligence and that intelligence we can achieve through yoga because we start focusing better and that’s what we want to achieve in Dominica.”Members of the steering committee are Dr. Lucia John, Mr. Shrinivas Kale, Mrs. Rujuta Kale, Mr. Vijay Punjabi, Mrs. Zilia George and Miss.
