FEATURED: Writer’s Bog by Friendly Fairytales

For all of us writers blogging, slogging and bogging down in the publishing labyrinth, I decided to publish my tips and shortcuts.

My bookmarking system had started to feel like the snake pit from Raiders of the Lost Ark.

This organizes and sets out part of my writing journey, including some books on writing I love. Feel free […]

Pranks are meant to be discovered—what’s the point in fooling someone if they never notice they’ve been fooled? But one 19th century prank, sprung by John James Audubon on another naturalist, was so extensive and so well executed that its full scope is only now coming to light.

The prank began when the French naturalist Constantine Rafinesque sought on Audubon…

HR4EU is a new free portal for online interactive Croatian language learning developed by a group of young linguists from the University of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb with the help of EU social projects funding, reports Croatian news agency HINA. This project, besides developing and presenting interactive Croatian language lessons, also involves the development of new and the build-up of existing computer-based resources for the Croatian language.

Free and entertaining courses already exist for many languages but not for the Croatian one. We thought it would be most useful to create something like that because, today, languages are most visible exactly via the internet,” said Matea Filko, PhD in Linguistics who works on this project.

The interactive HR4EU Croatian language learning course is divided into lessons in which grammar content, exercise questions, lines and interesting facts about Croatia (information about the gusty winds, cheese, dairy cream etc) rotate in interactive actions.

In order to make the learning more entertaining for the users we added cultural elements into the program, “ said Filko. That is, beside being able to learn the Croatian language using the program, HR4EU offers information about the Croatian culture, history and gastronomy as well as practical information that could help those who work or study in Croatia. Interactive maps representing Croatia and various video-clips regarding the use of the portal and existing computer resources can also be found here.

There are a fair number of traps in the Croatian language that a person learning it needs to overcome. There’s the trap of a large amount of information one needs to learn at the beginning, especially for someone from the English or Spanish speaking languages, which do not have declinations. Because of that the course progresses slowly and we do not give too much grammatical information at once,” said Jurica Polancec, also a PhD in Linguistics.

The portal offers a Beginners course, an Intermediary and an Advanced course, and two specialised courses – Croatian for Students and Croatian for Business people. These two latter modules help one learn specific material related to everyday student and business life. The Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced courses consist of 10 lessons where one learns grammar, vocabulary and spelling; learning and interaction are visual and auditory.

You can get started here.

We aim to promote the program via university portals throughout the world, where the Croatian language is taught as this course can serve as an excellent learning and studying resource. Primarily because it offers numerous questions in quiz formats for exercising, but also because all the grammatical contents are available in book form and can be printed from the portal and this is also very useful as such grammatical descriptions are rare to find in the public domain,” added Polancec.

Among electronic resources built by the HR4EU team, beside Croatian language lessons/courses, are:

Croatian morphological lexicon HML permits presentation of all formats of any word if one enters a dictionary version of the word (e.g if one enters the word “stol” [table] all forms of that word in singular and plural versions will appear on the screen) or the dictionary version of a word appears if one enters one of its formats.

Croatian Dependency Treebank resource that permits the user to view the syntactical structure of Croatian sentences. For the Croatian language course users this resource is supplemented with sentences found in the courses themselves and users are able to see the syntactical structure (what is the subject in the sentence, what is the predicate, the object etc.) and the semantic role of each of the parts in of the sentence (who performs the action, where is the action happening, who are the participants etc.).
The third resource worked on by this group of researchers is the so-called Croatian Wordnet, a semantic net of the Croatian language. Here, users can find out the synonyms for any word and words similar or close to the word entered.

In addition to other resources available on the HR4EU portal, besides the actual language courses and lessons, it is thought that some of the existing refined ones had not previously been used in the learning of the Croatian language but this group of linguists say that all the resources are very useful in the actual learning of the language, not just understanding it.

The leader of the HR4EU project is prof. dr. sc. Marko Tadic, permanent professor at the Linguistics department Faculty of Philosophy University of Zagreb and four post-graduate doctoral students are employed to work on it: Matea Filko, Dasa Farkas, Diana Hriberski and Jurica Polancec.

Technology platforms used to develop the interactive eLearning reportedly include Moodle and WordPress. Moodle-based interactive lessons and quizzes reportedly allow for fast and simple learning of the foundations of the Croatian language, and WordPress is used to compliment the technological process for a great and entertaining learning experience. Try it – it’s a great way to learn Croatian. Ina Vukic, Prof. (Zgb); B.A., M.A.Ps. (Syd)

FEATURED: Sekhmet, velada de domingo, testeo salado by bellaespiritu

SekhmetLos egipcios eran politeístas y no distinguían en cuanto a género cuando de dioses se trataba; a diferencia de las religiones patriarcales que excluyen a las mujeres del panteón sagrado, varias eran las diosas a las que rendían tributo y respeto. Entre ellas Sekhmet, la deidad con cuerpo de mujer y cabeza de leona, representaba la fuerza primigenia, la fortaleza nacida de la seguridad interior; su nombre significa “la Poderosa”, la “Señora de la destrucción”.

Con el disco solar sobre su cabeza y el viento del desierto silbando entre los dientes, en tanto fiera protectora era la encargada de custodiar las tierras del faraón arrojando flechas de fuego a los intrusos. Pero Sekhmet era también la diosa del fuego alquímico, la potente transmutadora de la oscuridad interna que origina la rabia, el resentimiento y la ira, porque munida de la cruz ansata como símbolo da origen a la nueva vida que asoma después de aniquilar los viejos patrones que atenazan la energía vital.

Los sentimientos de furia e ira han sido sojuzgados en las mujeres por el patriarcado, que ha negado tradicionalmente dichas potencias a las féminas con el pretexto de la natural tendencia que poseen hacia la ternura y la sumisión. Sin embargo, las cosmologías politeístas que no concebían dioses sin diosas no hacían distinciones en cuanto a características y condiciones, de ahí que las deidades matrísticas como la antiquísima diosa leonada de Anatolia sean antepasadas de Sekhmet y encarnen la poderosa ira de la Diosa Madre.

Descarnada, invencible, Sekhmet nos conecta con la energía arrolladora que ha sido sojuzgada interiormente por mandatos externos o por creencias internas. La rabia ancestral puede ser transmutada en fortaleza vital, siempre y cuando no se niegue conscientemente o se oculte en las profundidades del inconsciente: reconocerla e internalizarla serán los pasos necesarios para conectar con la impronta sanadora de Sekhmet.

Velada de domingo

MesaNoche de domingo otoñal y fría en la ciudad que se va templando mientras se aproxima el momento esperado durante varios meses: el estreno, finalmente, de la sexta temporada de Game of Thrones, la serie de culto que todos los años abandona a sus fieles por largos meses sumidos en la incógnita acerca del destino final de cada uno de los personajes.

Como ya es tradición entre nosotros, el primer capítulo de cada temporada Juan prepara una picada, Adri y Tony llegan con postre y en esta ocasión una botella de vino de San Rafael, el enclave mendocino donde las bodegas destacan por antigüedad y calidad. Así que luego de una charla distendida sobre los últimos acontecimientos de nuestras vidas nos sentamos frente a la pantalla del televisor expectantes y en silencio.

The red woman nos dejó con el mismo sabor a poco de la mayoría de los episodios, sobre todo con la revelación acerca de la edad antiquísima de Melissandre, presentida pero difícil de internalizar. La seductora mujer roja había anticipado en varias ocasiones que cargaba varias vidas sobre sus hombros, pero la escena final abre nuevos interrogantes respecto de la fuente de su poder: sea el collar refulgente, sea la magia que domina por gracia del Señor de la Luz, el personaje sigue siendo tan misterioso como perturbador.

Finalmente nos despedimos de nuestros amigos ante la inminencia de una semana laboral intensa después de haber compartido una apacible velada de domingo. Valar Morghulis fue el saludo ritual que compartimos con Adri, un código más entre los rituales comunes devenidos de tantos años de amistad.

Testeo salado

Dead Sea SaltLas propiedades curativas del Mar Muerto han sido reconocidas desde la más remota antigüedad. Los elementos que componen el gran lago salado poseen efectos terapéuticos formidables, de ahí que tantas personas se dirijan a buscar el milagro que implica la sumersión en sus aguas para el cuerpo físico.

Magnesio, calcio, potasio, bromuros son algunos de los minerales que se encuentran en el Mar Muerto. El magnesio fortalece el sistema nervioso y combate la retención de líquidos, el calcio favorece la salud de uñas y huesos, el potasio equilibra la humedad y restaura los músculos fatigados por el ejercicio físico, los bromuros contribuyen a relajarlos. La gran cantidad de sodio contribuye a equilibrar la linfa, que a su vez sostiene la salud del sistema inmune.

El metabolismo de la piel agradece la inmersión en aguas bienhechoras y dado que resulta materialmente imposible a quienes vivimos lejos de esta fuente de salud la habitualidad de la sumersión, he hecho acopio de algunos productos en mi estancia reciente que contengan en su composición sales de este benéfico mar. Naturaliz es una marca de origen jordano que cuenta con sales rosadas para baños de inmersión, que permiten reponer minerales en beneficio de la piel y relajar el cuerpo para beneficiar el alma.
