or should I have said that science is nothing more than an extension of the senses? Or that most of our scientific output is done by autopilots?
Sorry, I did not find the time to write so much here during this month. I have been revising manuscripts (on asthma genetics and another on the history of vitamin D introduction), traveling to another visit in Bolzano, a meeting in Barcelona and a retreat at Seeon. At present Yes, we can weiterlesen
Yesterday we had been in “Schloss Nymphenburg” for the “Serenade im Park“. I did not know about the close connection of Munich and Venice where even Gondolieres had been hired by the former Bavarian emperors… So it was quite natural to hear some Canzoni Napolitane, traditional songs like La Danza, Torna a Surriento, Santa Lucia while my favorite was “Tu vuò fà l’americano” by Maria Tselegidis, simply wonderful also the encore. My limited Italian did not allow to understand the Neapolitan dialect that says
Puorte’ o canzone cu’ ‘nu stemma arreto,
‘na cuppulella cu ‘a visiera aizata.
Passe scampanianno pè Tuleto
comme a’ nu guappo pe’ te fa guardà!
Tu vuò fa l’americano!
Siente a me, chi t’ho fa fa?
Tu vuoi vivere alla moda
ma si bive “Wisky and soda”
po’ e sente ‘e disturbà.
Tu abballe ‘o “Rocco Roll”
tu giochi al “basebal”
ma ‘e solde pe’ Camel
chi te li fa?..
La borsetta di mammà!
Tu vuò fa l’americano
ma si nato in Italy!
Siente a mme non ce stà niente a ffa
Tu vuò fa l’american!
Tu vuò fa l’american!
Comme te po’ capì che te vò bene
si tu le parle ‘mmiezzo americano?
Quando se fa l’amore sott’a luna
comme te vene ‘capa e di “j love you!?”
which is about an Italian who imitates an American (see translation). Although I can’t replay the excellent performance of Maria Tselegidis here, there are several versions of ‘Tu vuò fà l’americano” at Youtube – the famous one with Sophia Loren, the Ripley variant and a talented amateur version. Or watch the Puppini Sisters:
What’s the connection to Science Surf? I know also a lot of European scientists “vuò fà l’americano”, yea, yea.
If you do have the same problem like me – operating a computer, pointing towards a wall and looking at the same time at an audience is somewhat odd – here may be a solution for you.
Initially found this at a blog with some java source code.
Another video example is
with abandonded C# code that compiled nicely on my mac (laserinteraction). Experiments are ongoing…
This morning when leaving the Munich underground, I could hear Ivan – the best accordion player in the world. There are numerous videos at YouTube, so listen if you like Ivan Hajek – there is no better accordion player weiterlesen
The popular press is talking about vitamin D as “The Sunshine Vitamin”, promoting it as capable of reducing the risk of cancers and autoimmune disease. Yet vitamin D is actually a secosteroid transcriptional activator, at the heart of the innate immunity.
This looks trivial but it isnÂ´t if you look at the NEJM paper A secosteroid transcriptional activator weiterlesen
- I assume that your digicam also produces a .mov file
- Install avisysynth and virtualdubmod
- create a file bridge.avs with the only line
- Open bridge.avs in virtualdubmod, edit the video as usual and save it in .avi format
- Convert the .avi file into flash .flv as described earlier
Attending several large conferences every year, I know what Andre at Youtube is talking about:
This has even a name – Powerpoint Karaoke, yea, yea.
Jonathan Keller is taking a picture every day since Oktober 1998. As seen on Youtube – with more series on the web. “Sie haben sich gar nicht verändert”. “Oh!”, sagte Herr Keuner und erbleichte (Bert Brecht).
