Saints Cyril and Methodius

Saints Cyril and Methodius (826-869, 815-885; Greek: Κύριλλος καὶ Μεθόδιος; Old Church Slavonic: Кѷриллъ и Меѳодїи[more]) were two brothers who were Byzantine Christian theologians and Christian missionaries. Through their work they influenced the cultural development of all Slavs, for which they received the title "Apostles to the Slavs". They are credited with devising the Glagolitic alphabet, the first alphabet used to transcribe Old Church Slavonic.[4] After their deaths, their pupils continued their missionary work among other Slavs. Both brothers are venerated in the Orthodox Church as saints with the title of "equal-to-apostles". In 1880, Pope Leo XIII introduced their feast into the calendar of the Roman Catholic Church. In 1980, Pope John Paul II declared them co-patron saints of Europe, together with Benedict of Nursia.[5]

Early life

The two brothers were born in Thessalonica, in present-day Greece – Cyril in about 827–828 and Methodius about 815–820. Cyril was reputedly the youngest of seven brothers; he was born Constantine,[6] but took the name Cyril upon becoming a monk in Rome shortly before his death,[7][8][9] according to the "Vita Cyrilli" ("The Life of Cyril"). Methodius was born Michael and took the name Methodius upon becoming a monk at Mysian Olympus (present-day Uludağ), in northwest Turkey.[10] Their father was Leo, a droungarios of the Byzantine theme of Thessalonica, and their mother was Maria.

The exact ethnic origins of the brothers are unknown, there is controversy as to whether Cyril and Methodius were of Slavic[11] or Byzantine Greek[12] origin, or both.[13] The two brothers lost their father when Cyril was fourteen, and the powerful minister Theoktistos, who was logothetes tou dromou, one of the chief ministers of the Empire, became their protector. He was also responsible, along with the regent Bardas, for initiating a far-reaching educational program within the Empire which culminated in the establishment of the University of Magnaura, where Cyril was to teach. Cyril was ordained as priest some time after his education, while his brother Methodius remained only a deacon until 867/868.[14]
Missions in the Middle East

Cyril's mastery of theology and command of both Arabic and Hebrew made him eligible for his first state mission. He was sent to the Abbasid Caliph Al-Mutawakkil to discuss the principle of the Holy Trinity with the Arab theologians, and to improve relations between the Caliphate and the Empire.[citation needed]

The second mission (860), requested by the Byzantine Emperor Michael III and the Patriarch of Constantinople Photius (a professor of Cyril's at the University and his guiding light in earlier years), was a missionary expedition to the Khazar Khaganate in order to prevent the expansion of Judaism there. This mission was unsuccessful, as later the Khagan imposed Judaism on his people as the national religion. It has been claimed that Methodius accompanied Cyril on the mission to the Khazars, but this is probably a later invention. The account of his life presented in the Latin "Legenda" claims that he learned the Khazar language while in Chersonesos, in Taurica (today Crimea).[citation needed]

After his return to Constantinople, Cyril assumed the role of professor of philosophy at the University while his brother had by this time become a significant player in Byzantine political and administrative affairs, and an abbot of his monastery.[citation needed]

Mission to the Slavs

Great Moravia

In 862, the brothers began the work which would give them their historical importance. That year Prince Rastislav of Great Moravia requested that Emperor Michael III and the Patriarch Photius send missionaries to evangelize his Slavic subjects. His motives in doing so were probably more political than religious. Rastislav had become king with the support of the Frankish ruler Louis the German, but subsequently sought to assert his independence from the Franks. It is a common misconception that Cyril and Methodius were the first to bring Christianity to Moravia, but the letter from Rastislav to Michael III states clearly that Rastislav's people "had already rejected paganism and adhere to the Christian law."[15] Rastislav is said to have expelled missionaries of the Roman Church and instead turned to Constantinople for ecclesiastical assistance and, presumably, a degree of political support.[16] The Emperor quickly chose to send Cyril, accompanied by his brother Methodius. The request provided a convenient opportunity to expand Byzantine influence. Their first work seems to have been the training of assistants. In 863, they began the task of translating the Bible into the language now known as Old Church Slavonic and travelled to Great Moravia to promote it. They enjoyed considerable success in this endeavour. However, they came into conflict with German ecclesiastics who opposed their efforts to create a specifically Slavic liturgy.

For the purpose of this mission, they devised the Glagolitic alphabet, the first alphabet to be used for Slavonic manuscripts. The Glagolitic alphabet was suited to match the specific features of the Slavic language. Its descendant script, the Cyrillic, is still used by many languages today.[16]

They wrote the first Slavic Civil Code, which was used in Great Moravia. The language derived from Old Church Slavonic, known as Church Slavonic, is still used in liturgy by several Orthodox Churches and also in some Eastern Catholic churches.

It is impossible to determine with certainty what portions of the Bible the brothers translated. The New Testament and the Psalms seem to have been the first, followed by other lessons from the Old Testament. The "Translatio" speaks only of a version of the Gospels by Cyril, and the "Vita Methodii" only of the "evangelium Slovenicum," though other liturgical selections may also have been translated.

Nor is it known for sure which liturgy, that of Rome or that of Constantinople, they took as a source. They may well have used the Roman alphabet, as suggested by liturgical fragments which adhere closely to the Latin type. This view is confirmed by the "Prague Fragments" and by certain Old Glagolitic liturgical fragments brought from Jerusalem to Kiev and discovered there by Saresnewsky—probably the oldest document for the Slavonic tongue; these adhere closely to the Latin type, as is shown by the words "Mass," "Preface," and the name of one Felicitas. In any case, the circumstances were such that the brothers could hope for no permanent success without obtaining the authorization of Rome.




Cyril and Methodius, painting by Jan Matejko, 1885

Journey to Rome

In 867, Pope Nicholas I invited the brothers to Rome. Their evangelizing mission in Moravia had by this time become the focus of a dispute with Theotmar, the Archbishop of Salzburg and bishop of Passau, who claimed ecclesiastical control of the same territory and wished to see it use the Latin liturgy exclusively. Travelling with the relics of Saint Clement and a retinue of disciples, and passing through Pannonia (the Balaton Principality), where they were well received by Prince Koceľ (Kocelj, Kozel), they arrived in Rome in 868, where they were warmly received. This was partly due to their bringing with them the relics of Saint Clement; the rivalry with Constantinople as to the jurisdiction over the territory of the Slavs would incline Rome to value the brothers and their influence.[16]

The brothers were praised for their learning and cultivated for their influence in Constantinople. Anastasius Bibliothecarius would later call Cyril "a man of apostolic life" and "a man of great wisdom".[17] Their project in Moravia found support from Pope Adrian II, who formally authorized the use of the new Slavic liturgy. Subsequently Methodius was ordained as priest by the pope himself, and five Slavic disciples were ordained as priests (Saint Gorazd, Saint Clement of Ohrid and Saint Naum) and as deacons (Saint Angelar and Saint Sava) by the prominent bishops Formosus and Gauderic.[18] The newly made priests officiated in their own languages at the altars of some of the principal churches. Feeling his end approaching, Cyril became a monk, was given the new name Cyril,[19] and died in Rome fifty days later (14 February 869). There is some question as to assertion of the Translatio (ix.) that he was made a bishop.
Methodius alone

Methodius now continued the work among the Slavs alone; not at first in Great Moravia, but in Pannonia (in the Balaton Principality), owing to the political circumstances of the former country, where Rastislav had been taken captive by his nephew Svatopluk, then delivered over to Carloman, and condemned in a diet of the empire at the end of 870.

Friendly relations had been established with Koceľ on the journey to Rome. This activity in Pannonia made a conflict inevitable with the German episcopate, and especially with the bishop of Salzburg, to whose jurisdiction Pannonia had belonged for seventy-five years. In 865 Bishop Adalwin is found exercising all Episcopal rights there, and the administration under him was in the hands of the archpriest Riehbald. The latter was obliged to retire to Salzburg, but his superior was naturally disinclined to abandon his claims. Methodius sought support from Rome; the Vita asserts that Koceľ sent him thither with an honorable escort to receive Episcopal consecration.

The letter given as Adrian's in chap. viii., with its approval of the Slavonic mass, is a pure invention. The pope named Methodius archbishop of Sirmium with jurisdiction over Great Moravia and Pannonia, thus superseding the claims of Salzburg by an older title. The statement of the "Vita" that Methodius was made bishop in 870 and not raised to the dignity of an archbishop until 873 is contradicted by the brief of Pope John VIII, written in June 879, according to which Adrian consecrated him archbishop; John includes in his jurisdiction not only Great Moravia and Pannonia, but Serbia as well.
Methodius' final years

The archiepiscopal claims of Methodius were considered such an injury to the rights of Salzburg that he was forced to answer for them at a synod held at Regensburg in the presence of King Louis. The assembly, after a heated discussion, declared the deposition of the intruder, and ordered him to be sent to Germany, where he was kept prisoner in Ellwangen for two and a half years. In spite of the strong representations of the Conversio Bagoariorum et Carantanorum, written in 871 to influence the pope, though not avowing this purpose, Rome declared emphatically for Methodius, and sent a bishop, Paul of Ancons, to reinstate him and punish his enemies, after which both parties were commanded to appear in Rome with the legate.

The papal will prevailed, and Methodius secured his freedom and his archiepiscopal authority over both Great Moravia and Pannonia, though the use of Slavonic for the mass was still denied to him. His authority was restricted in Pannonia when after Koceľ's death the principality was administered by German nobles; but Svatopluk now ruled with practical independence in Great Moravia, and expelled the German clergy. This apparently secured an undisturbed field of operation for Methodius, and the Vita (x.) depicts the next few years (873–879) as a period of fruitful progress. Methodius seems to have disregarded, wholly or in part, the prohibition of the Slavonic liturgy; and when Frankish clerics again found their way into the country, and the archbishop's strictness had displeased the licentious Svatopluk, this was made a cause of complaint against him at Rome, coupled with charges regarding the Filioque.

Methodius vindicated his orthodoxy at Rome, the more easily as the creed was still recited there without the Filioque, and promised to obey in regard to the liturgy. The other party was conciliated by giving him a Swabian, Wiching, as his coadjutor. When relations were strained between the two, John VIII steadfastly supported Methodius; but after his death (December 882) the archbishop's position became insecure, and his need of support induced Goetz to accept the statement of the Vita (xiii.) that he went to visit the Eastern emperor.

It was not until after Methodius' death, which is placed on 6 April 885,[20] that the animosity erupted into an open conflict. Gorazd, whom Methodius had designated as his successor, was not recognised by Pope Stephen V. The same Pope forbade the use of the Slavic liturgy[21] and placed the infamous Wiching as Methodius' successor. The latter exiled the disciples of the two brothers from Great Moravia in 885. They fled to the First Bulgarian Empire, where they were welcomed and commissioned to establish theological schools. There they devised the Cyrillic script on the basis of the Glagolitic. Cyrillic gradually replaced Glagolitic as the alphabet of the Old Church Slavonic language, which became the official language of the Bulgarian Empire and later spread to the Eastern Slav lands of Kievan Rus'. Cyrillic eventually spread throughout most of the Slavic world to become the standard alphabet in the Eastern Orthodox Slavic countries. Hence, Cyril and Methodius' efforts also paved the way for the spread of Christianity throughout Eastern Europe.

Methodius' body was buried in the main cathedral church of Great Moravia. Until today remains an open question which city was capital of Great Moravia and therefore the place of Methodius' eternal rest remains unknown.[22]

Invention of the Glagolitic and Cyrillic alphabets

The Glagolitic and Cyrillic alphabets are the oldest known Slavic alphabets, and were created by the two brothers and their students, to translate the Bible and other texts into the Slavic languages.[23] The early Glagolitic alphabet was used in Great Moravia between 863 (the arrival of Cyril and Methodius) and 885 (the expulsion of their students) for government and religious documents and books, and at the Great Moravian Academy (Veľkomoravské učilište) founded by Cyril, where followers of Cyril and Methodius were educated, by Methodius himself among others. The alphabet has been traditionally attributed to Cyril. That attribution has been confirmed explicitly by the papal letter Industriae tuae (880) approving the use of Old Church Slavonic, which says that the alphabet was "invented by Constantine the Philosopher". The term invention need not exclude the possibility of the brothers having made use of earlier letters, but implies only that before that time the Slavic languages had no distinct script of their own.

The early Cyrillic alphabet was developed in the First Bulgarian Empire[24] and later finalized and spread by disciples Kliment and Naum in the Ohrid and Preslav schools of Tsar Boris' Bulgaria[25] as a simplification of the Glagolitic alphabet which more closely resembled the Greek alphabet. It was developed by the disciples of Saints Cyril and Methodius at the Preslav Literary School at the end of the 9th century.

After the death of Cyril, Clement of Ohrid accompanied Methodius from Rome to Pannonia and Great Moravia. After the death of Methodius in 885, Clement headed the struggle against the German clergy in Great Moravia along with Gorazd. After spending some time in jail, he was expelled from Great Moravia, and in 885 or 886 reached the borders of the Bulgarian Empire together with Naum of Preslav, Angelarius, and possibly Gorazd (according to other sources, Gorazd was already dead by that time). The four of them were afterwards sent to the Bulgarian capital of Pliska, where they were commissioned by Tsar Boris I of Bulgaria to instruct the future clergy of the state in the Slavonic language.

After the adoption of Christianity in 865, religious ceremonies in Bulgaria were conducted in Greek by clergy sent from the Byzantine Empire. Fearing growing Byzantine influence and weakening of the state, Boris viewed the adoption of the Old Slavonic language as a way to preserve the political independence and stability of Bulgaria, so he established two literary schools (academies), in Pliska and Ohrid, where theology was to be taught in the Slavonic language. While Naum of Preslav stayed in Pliska working on the foundation of the Pliska Literary School, Clement was commissioned by Boris I to organise the teaching of theology to future clergymen in Old Church Slavonic at the Ohrid Literary School. For seven years (886-893) Clement taught some 3,500 students in the Slavonic language and the Glagolitic alphabet.

Commemoration

Saints Cyril and Methodius' Day

The canonization process was much more relaxed in the decades following Cyril's death than today. Cyril was regarded by his disciples as a saint soon after his death. His following spread among the nations he evangelized and subsequently to the wider Christian Church, and he was famous as a holy man, along with his brother Methodius. There were calls for Cyril's canonization from the crowds lining the Roman streets during his funeral procession. The brothers' first appearance in a papal document is in Grande Munus of Leo XIII in 1880. They are known as the "Apostles of the Slavs", and are still highly regarded by both Roman Catholic and Orthodox Christians. Their feast day is currently celebrated on 14 February in the Roman Catholic Church (to coincide with the date of St Cyril's death); on 11 May in the Eastern Orthodox Church (though for Eastern Orthodox Churches which use the Julian Calendar this is 24 May according to the Gregorian calendar); and on 7 July according to the old sanctoral calendar that existed before the revisions of the Second Vatican Council. The celebration also commemorates the introduction of literacy and the preaching of the gospels in the Slavonic language by the brothers. The brothers were declared "Patrons of Europe" in 1980.[26]

According to old Bulgarian chronicles, the day of the holy brothers was celebrated ecclesiastically as early as the 11th century. The first recorded secular celebration of Saints Cyril and Methodius' Day as the "Day of the Bulgarian script", as traditionally accepted by Bulgarian history, was held in the town of Plovdiv on 11 May 1851, when a local Bulgarian school was named "Saints Cyril and Methodius": both acts on the initiative of the prominent Bulgarian educator Nayden Gerov,[27] although an Armenian traveller mentioned his visit to the "celebration of the Bulgarian script" in the town of Shumen on 22 May 1803.[28]

The day is now celebrated as a public holiday in the following countries:

In Bulgaria it is celebrated on 24 May and is known as the "Bulgarian Education and Culture, and Slavonic Literature Day" (Bulgarian: Ден на българската просвета и култура и на славянската писменост), a national holiday celebrating Bulgarian culture and literature as well as the alphabet. It is also known as "Alphabet, Culture, and Education Day" (Bulgarian: Ден на азбуката, културата и просвещението). Saints Cyril and Methodius are patrons of the National Library of Bulgaria. There is a monument to them in front of the library. Saints Cyril and Methodius are the most celebrated saints in the Bulgarian Orthodox church, and icons of the two brothers can be found in every church.

In the Republic of Macedonia, it is celebrated on 24 May and is known as the "Saints Cyril and Methodius, Slavonic Enlighteners' Day" (Macedonian: Св. Кирил и Методиј, Ден на словенските просветители), a national holiday. The Government of the Republic of Macedonia enacted a statute of the national holiday in October 2006 and the Parliament of the Republic of Macedonia passed a corresponding law at the beginning of 2007.[29] Previously it had only been celebrated in the schools. It is also known as the day of the "Solun Brothers" (Macedonian: Солунските браќа).

In the Czech Republic and Slovakia, the two brothers were originally commemorated on 9 March, but Pope Pius IX changed this date to 5 July for several reasons.[30] Today, Saints Cyril and Methodius are revered there as national saints and their name day (5 July), "Sts Cyril and Methodius Day" is a national holiday in Czech Republic and Slovakia. In the Czech Republic it is celebrated as "Slavic Missionaries Cyril and Methodius Day" (Czech: Den slovanských věrozvěstů Cyrila a Metoděje); in Slovakia it is celebrated as "St. Cyril and Metod Day" (Slovak: Sviatok svätého Cyrila a Metoda).[30]

In Russia, it is celebrated on 24 May and is known as the "Slavonic Literature and Culture Day" (Russian: День славянской письменности и культуры), celebrating Slavonic culture and literature as well as the alphabet. Its celebration is ecclesiastical (11 May in the Church's Julian calendar). It is not a public holiday in Russia.

The saints' feast day is celebrated by the Eastern Orthodox Church on 11 May and by the Roman Catholic Church and the Anglican Communion on 14 February as "Saints Cyril and Methodius Day". The Lutheran Churches commemorate the two saints either on 14 February or 11 May.

Other commemoration

The national library of Bulgaria in Sofia, Ss. Cyril and Methodius University of Skopje in the Republic of Macedonia, and St. Cyril and St. Methodius University of Veliko Tarnovo in Bulgaria and in Trnava, Slovakia, bear the name of the two saints. Faculty of Theology at Palacký University in Olomouc (Czech Republic), bears the name "Saints Cyril and Methodius Faculty of Theology". In the United States, SS. Cyril and Methodius Seminary in Orchard Lake, Michigan, bears their name.

Saints Cyril and Methodius are the main patron saints of the Archdiocese of Ljubljana. Ljubljana Cathedral stands at Cyril and Methodius Square (Slovene: Ciril–Metodov trg).[31] They are also patron saints of the Byzantine Catholic Eparchy of Košice (Slovakia)[3] and the Slovak Greek Catholic Eparchy of Toronto.

St. Cyril Peak and St. Methodius Peak in the Tangra Mountains on Livingston Island, South Shetland Islands, in Antarctica are named for the brothers.

Saint Cyril's remains are interred in a shrine-chapel within the Basilica di San Clemente in Rome. The chapel holds a Madonna by Sassoferrato.

The Basilica of SS. Cyril and Methodius in Danville, Pennsylvania, (the only Roman Catholic basilica dedicated to SS. Cyril and Methodius in the world) is the motherhouse chapel of the Sisters of SS. Cyril and Methodius, a Roman Catholic women's religious community of pontifical rite dedicated to apostolic works of ecumenism, education, evangelization, and elder care.[32]

Got to make some money to buy some brand new shoes (Definitely Not suitable for kids)

Mr. Chuck Berry--Let It Rock
Sung by the Rolling Stones


In the heat of the day down in Mobile, Alabama
Working on the railroad with the steel driving hammer
Got to make some money to buy some brand new shoes
Trying to find somebody to take away these blues
She don't love me and tried singing in the sun
Payday's coming and my work is all done

Guitar

Later in the evening when the sun is sinking low
All day I been waiting for the whistle to blow
Sitting in a teepee built right on the tracks
Rolling them bones until the foreman comes back
I pick up your belongings and tried scatter about
While I sit on train, coming two miles about

Guitar

Yeah
Everybody's talking, tried scrambling around
Picking up their money, tearing the teepee down
Foreman wants to panic, 'bout to go insane
Trying to get the workers out the way of the train
Engineer blows the whistle long and long
Can't stop the train, got to let it roll on

Guitar

You're gonna get it straight from the shoulder
Can't you see the party's over

Hey, let me go

I tried giving you the knockout punch
Hey, let me go

Let me go

I find it hard to be cruel
I find it hard to be cruel
With a smile, don't you?

Hang around in______

Hey, let me go
Let me go

Guitar

So you think I'm giving you the brush off
Well I'm just telling you to shove off

This ain't no time to waste my breath
We're going into sudden death
Hey, let let me go

Can't you get it through your thick head
This affair is dead as a doornail
Hey, let let me go

The bell has rung, and I've called time
The chair is on the table, out the door baby

Let me go
Baby won't you let me go

Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky

Jennifer Lawrence and Darren Aronofsky by Francesca Bacardi

Jennifer Lawrence is lying low these days...with boyfriend Darren Aronofsky.

The couple was spotted out and about in New York City Saturday, spending a chilly Manhattan day at the movies before grabbing a bite to eat at an Indian restaurant. E! News has obtained exclusively photos of the couple giving each other a warm embrace before heading out for their date day.

"Their relationship seems very strong and genuine," a source tells E! News, noting that they "kissed and hugged" throughout their day. The Oscar-winning actress and director saw Beauty and the Beast and then made their way to Bhatti Indian Grill.


Jen bundled up in a black puffy coat and steel-colored chapeau, which she paired with a pair of blue jeans and a Kara backpack. The Oscar-nominated director looked equally as warm and casual in a yellow beanie and gray coat.



A separate source tells E! News that even though they haven't been spotted out in public in a while, their relationship is going strong. "Jen and Darren are still very much so together," the insider says. "Darren visited Jen in Budapest while she was filming Red Sparrow recently. He was there during his birthday and to support her while she was away filming. They are very happy together right now."


E! News previously reported that Lawrwence and Aronofsky have been "official" since August. Aronofsky shares a 10-year-old son, Henry, with ex Rachel Weisz, but there's no word on whether Lawrence has met him yet. A source did note, however, that Lawrence "seems very comfy with his family."
The Hunger Games alum was previously linked to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin but reportedly called it quits with him because of her struggles with the extra spotlight the relationship put on them.


All the best guys. God bless.

Portugal by Susan Bird





Portugal just passed a law requiring all public cafeterias to offer at least one vegan option to diners. That mandate applies to all public hospitals, prisons, schools, universities and other public buildings.

Within six months, all these cafeterias must provide a minimum of one meal choice that is free from animal products. The law calls it a “strict vegetarian option.”

What drove this remarkable change? The will of the people, of course.

Soon, Portuguese vegans won’t have to struggle to maintain their ethical or health-based dietary choices when they’re stuck with eating cafeteria food in a public building.

Vegans, how many of you wonder how difficult it’s likely to be to eat the way you want to eat if you end up in a hospital for a few days? I ponder that issue from time to time. You probably do too. We tend to lose control over aspects of our personal life while in a hospital. That limitation includes what we eat. Wouldn’t it be wonderful not to have to worry about that?

The force behind the change in Portugal is the Portuguese Vegetarian Society. In 2016 the PVS began a petition drive, much like those you’ve probably signed here at Care2. As you know, petitions can be mightily persuasive. A whopping 15,000 people signed PVS’s petition, enabling this issue to come before Portugal’s parliament for discussion in 2016.

With the success of the petition drive, animal rights party PAN formally put forward the proposal for the new law. Three left-wing political parties embraced the idea and it took off from there.

According to PAN’s André Silva, this requirement will not raise costs because veggie options are typically less expensive to make than meals for omnivores. The law also provides that cafeterias can cease offering vegan options if too few people ask for them.

“We feel this is a major breakthrough in Portugal because it’s the first time we have any law that specifically mentions vegetarianism,” noted Nuno Alvim, PVS spokesperson.

“This is, of course, predicted to have a significant impact on the population’s health foremost, but also on animals and the environment in the long run,” Alvim added. “Promoting the rights of the vegan population is as important as campaigning and informing people to adopt veganism, in our view.”

A similar petition drive began in the United Kingdom in October 2016, with the same goal in mind. Will it succeed? Time will tell, but the deadline to obtain enough signatures is April 3, 2017.

It’s refreshing to see that in some places, public demand for vegan options is heard and acknowledged. We all know that switching to a plant-based diet helps the planet and the animals in myriad ways. It seems almost ridiculous at this point to argue against the need to shift to a plant-based diet. If our planet is to survive and thrive, it’s a change we need to embrace — soon.

Why isn’t every restaurant and cafeteria offering some kind of healthy vegan meal these days? The growing number of plant-based eaters would seem to make that a no-brainer of a decision. Let’s hope public demand everywhere brings us more reliable, widespread access to plant-based meals. After all, it’s not a meat-eater’s world anymore. It can’t be.



All the best.  God  bless.

A1 Femminile:di volleyball.it


MODENA – È la Foppapedretti Bergamo la terza squadra che conosce il proprio destino in Serie A1 femminile. Dopo l’Imoco Volley Conegliano, da tempo certa del primato in Regular Season, e il Club Italia, matematicamente retrocesso, le rossoblù saranno sicuramente quarte al termine della stagione regolare, a cui manca solo l’ultima giornata interamente in programma sabato 25 marzo alle 20.30. Nessuna delle altre posizioni, infatti, è ancora assegnata.

In MAIUSCOLO le gare in casa. In neretto le squadre certe della loro posizione. 
PODIO D’ARGENTO – Il secondo posto sarà in palio tra Pomì Casalmaggiore, che supera per 3-1 la Savino Del Bene Scandicci, e l’Igor Gorgonzola Novara, vittoriosa per 3-0 sulle azzurrine del team federale. Le rosa conservano due punti di vantaggio sulle piemontesi e ne avranno bisogno di uno soltanto nella trasferta di Montichiari per assicurarsi la piazza d’onore. 
CHE INCROCI – Intricata la matassa per le posizioni dalla quinta alla nona, con due scontri diretti all’orizzonte. Quello tra Liu Jo Nordmeccanica Modena e Sudtirol Bolzano – anche oggi vincente per 3-0 su Bergamo e a quota 31 punti – deciderà probabilmente chi sarà tra le prime sei e si qualificherà dunque direttamente per i quarti di finale, evitando il turno preliminare di Play Off Scudetto. Quello tra la Savino Del Bene Scandicci e Il Bisonte Firenze potrà mescolare le carte in vista della griglia della post-season. Residue speranze di sesto posto le ha anche la Unet Yamamay Busto Arsizio, rimontata a Monza e ora ottava. 
MONZA SI SALVA? – A proposito di Monza, l’impresa del Saugella Team profuma di salvezza. Le brianzole vincono 3-2 (da 0-2 e 4-10 nel quarto) e conquistano due punti fondamentali, che consentono loro di staccare Montichiari, battuta 3-1 a Firenze. Le ragazze di Davide Delmati dovranno imporsi con qualsiasi risultato sul Club Italia per mantenere la categoria.

Mr. Chuck Berry - Johnny B. Goode


Deep down in Louisiana close to New Orleans
Way back up in the woods among the evergreens
There stood a log cabin made of earth and wood
Where lived a country boy named Johnny B. Goode
Who never ever learned to read or write so well
But he could play a guitar just like a ringing a bell

(Chorus)
Go Go
Go Johnny Go
Go Go Johnny Go
Go Go Johnny Go
Go Go Johnny Go
Go
Johnny B. Goode

He used to carry his guitar in a gunny sack
Oh sit beneath a tree by the railroad track
Oh the engineers would see him sitting in the shade
Strumming with the rhythm that the drivers made
people passing by they would stop and say
'Oh my but that little country boy could play

(Chorus)
Go Go
Go Johnny Go
Go Go Johnny Go
Go Go Johnny Go
Go Go Johnny Go
Go
Johnny B. Goode

His mother told him 'some day you will be a man
And you will be the leader of a big ol' band
Many people coming from miles around
To hear you play your music when the sun go down
Maybe some day your name will be in lights saying
Johnny B. Goode tonight


(Chorus)
Go Go
Go Johnny Go
Go Go Go Johnny Go
Go Go Go Johnny Go
Go Go Go Johnny Go
Go
Johnny B. Goode

Faticosa rimonta per il Sesi




source:volleyball.it

Brasile:di Giacomo Tarsi

BRASILE – Dopo l’esordio in scioltezza del Sada Cruzeiro ben maggiori sono state le difficoltà incontrate del Sesi di Bruninho (tenuto in panchina per lunghi tratti di 2°, 3° e 4° set, ma comunque decisivo con 3 muri nella fase finale del 3° set) e dello spento Lucas (sostituito da Aracaju negli ultimi 2 set) per avere ragione del Minas che trascinato dai 22 punti del cubano Bisset è arrivato ad un passo dall’approfittare dello scarso momento di forma dei padroni di casa che lamentano diversi problemi fisici nel reparto schiacciatori: assente Fabio, Murilo non disponibile per l’attacco, Alan uscito nelle fasi finali del tie-break.
In un match ricco di errori (37 del Sesi e 43 degli ospiti) il Minas ha avuto il torto di sprecare un vantaggio di 15-18 e 19-21 nel 3° set, di 21-22 nel 4° set e poi ancora 3 match point nel tie-break (12-14, 14-15). MVP del match è stato votato lo schiacciatore della nazionale Douglas Souza.

Nell’altro quarto di finale odierno si sono esaltati Wallace (19 punti e premio di MVP per l’opposto campione olimpico) ed Otavio (71% in att. e 6 muri per il centrale) ed il Funvic ha avuto la meglio in 3 set sul UFJF di Renan che ha comunque venduto cara la pelle nei primi 2 set.
