Seu eu superior sabe o que é melhor pra você

nonnabuka

depressão

Quem somos? Por que estamos aqui? Quais são as suas convicções na vida? Durante milhares de anos, a busca das respostas para estas questões significou ir para dentro. Mas o que significa isso?

Acredito num Poder dentro de cada um de nós que nos pode conduzir com amor a uma saúde perfeita, aos relacionamentos perfeitos, às carreiras perfeitas e que nos pode proporcionar toda a espécie de prosperidade. Para alcançarmos esses resultados, temos primeiro que acreditar que isso seja possível. Temos também que estar preparados para nos libertarmos dos padrões nas nossas vidas que causam as condições que dizemos não desejar. Podemos fazê-lo progredindo para dentro, conectando-nos ao Poder Interior que sabe o que é melhor para nós. Se estivermos preparados para entregar as nossas vidas a esse Poder superior dentro de nós, o Poder que nos ama e sustem, podemos trazer mais amor e prosperidade às nossas vidas.

Llega al mundo la Social TV

STNoticias

Actualmente, ver la TV no sólo implica observar la pantalla, sino conectarte a internet para criticar los vestidos del Óscar, molestar a tu compadre porque perdió su equipo o buscar quién es el actor de la serie de moda. Eso podrás hacerlo directo en la TV, eso es la Social TV.

Este año, las grandes marcas quieren tu total atención, así que en lugar de competir por ella con tu smartphone o tableta, adoptarán algunas de sus cualidades y las transformarán en controles remotos, accesorios y puntos de encuentro de aplicaciones en el televisor.

Sony, por ejemplo, apostó por la interacción entre usuarios e integró a su pantalla principal una banda con publicaciones en tiempo real de Twitter y una ventana para hablar por Skype mientras ves un partido. Cuenta con tecnología NFC en el control remoto para conectar tu smartphone.

Samsung, divide su pantalla principal en dos para navegar…

Paul O’Dette’s Recital for the Ages

Boulder Bach Beat

Only one thing was on everyone’s mind at the Leacock Theatre [at Mount Royal University in Calgary] on 25 January 2014, and that was Paul O’Dette’s programming of a generous helping of Bach’s lute works. Originally written for the lautenwerk, a keyboard instrument (and a curiosity even in its day) made with gut strings instead of metal, it could emulate a lute so exactly when played that it even fooled experts who listened to it in an adjoining room. Bach owned two of the instruments, and even though copies have been built so as to duplicate their sound, the music left behind for the lautenwerk still poses a problem – how do we play these keyboard masterpieces for their authentically-intended sound world, namely, the lute?

Bach’s lute works have historically presented many problems for transcribers and performers, whether for guitar or for baroque thirteen-course lute, but this night…
