I’VE BEEN SITTING HERE ALL DAY …

… feeling like I need to apologize to someone.

The year is around 1939-40. The place is an Island in the Caribbean. The man on the right is a successful artist who has quit painting and now does abstract steel sculpture. He has just learned his son who went to Canada and joined the RAF has been killed.

The man on the left is his mate on his fishing boat. He comes up, sits down by the sculptor and asks if he can bring him something to eat, reminding him he hasn’t eaten all day.

The sculptor answers, "I’ve been sitting here all day, feeling like I need to apologize to someone." That’s one of Ernest Hemingway’s great all time lines. The novel and the movie are called Islands in the Stream.

This from Wikipedia:

Islands in the Stream (1970) was the first of Ernest Hemingway’s novels to be published posthumously.

The book was originally intended to revive Hemingway’s reputation after the negative reviews of Across the River and Into the Trees. He began writing it in 1950 and advanced greatly through 1951. The work, rough but seemingly finished, was found by Mary Hemingway from among 332 different works Hemingway left behind after his death.

Islands in the Stream was meant to encompass three stories to illustrate different stages in the life of its main character, Thomas Hudson. The three different parts of the novel were originally to be entitled "The Sea When Young", "The Sea When Absent" and "The Sea in Being". These titles were changed, however, into what are now its three acts: "Bimini", "Cuba", and "At Sea".

Plot

The first act, "Bimini", begins with an introduction to the character of Thomas Hudson, a classic Hemingway stoic male figure. Hudson is a renowned American painter who finds tranquility on the island of Bimini, in the Bahamas, a far cry from his usual adventurous lifestyle. Hudson’s strict routine of work is interrupted when his three sons arrive for the summer and is the setting for most of the act. Also introduced in this act is the character of Roger Davis, one of Hudson’s oldest friends. Though similar to Hudson, by struggling with an unmentioned internal conflict, Davis seems to act as a more dynamic and outgoing image of Hudson’s character. The act ends with Hudson receiving news of the death of his two youngest children soon after they leave the island.

"Cuba" takes place soon thereafter during the second World War, where we are introduced to an older and more distant Hudson who has just received news of his oldest (and last) son’s death in the war. This second act introduces us to a more cynical and introverted Hudson who spends his days on the island drinking heavily and doing naval reconnaissance for the US Army.

"At Sea", the final act, ends leaving the reader to assume Hudson dies after being wounded in a shoot out which capped a pursuit (by him and a team of irregulars) of German sailors whose U-boat was presumably sunk in the Gulf Stream, although the ending is slightly ambiguous. Hudson becomes intent on finding the fleeing Germans after he finds they massacred an entire village to cover their escape. In this last act Hudson stops questioning the death of his children. This chapter rings heavily with influences of Hemingway’s earlier work For Whom the Bell Tolls.

Fourth Act: The Old Man and the Sea
While writing the novel Ernest Hemingway wrote a fourth part that did not seem to go with the other acts of the book. The fourth act dealt with a Cuban fisherman and was not about the rich American artist. It was this fourth part that seemed to intrigue Hemingway most as he decided to separate this act and make it into its own published work. This novella became “The Old Man and the Sea”, published in 1952, which earned Ernest Hemingway international acclaim and one of the books which earned him his Nobel Prize in 1954. Echoes of this work can still be found in Islands in the Stream within the tale of young David Hudson’s five hour struggle to capture a large fish which strongly resembles the struggle of "The Old Man and the Sea".

Saharan Dust Reaches the Americas (NASA, International Space Station, 07/15/12)
cuba news
Image by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center
Saharan dust reaching the Americas is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 32 crew member on the International Space Station. Weather satellites frequently document major dust palls blowing from the Sahara Desert westward from Africa out into the tropical Atlantic Ocean. Space station crew members frequently see these Saharan dust masses as very widespread atmospheric haze. Dust palls blowing from Africa can be transported right across the Atlantic Ocean. It takes about a week to reach either North America (in northern hemisphere summer) or South America (in northern hemisphere winter). This puts the Caribbean basin on the receiving end of many of these events. Recently, researchers have linked Saharan dust to coral disease, allergic reactions in humans, and red tides. The margin of the hazy air in this image reaches as far as Haiti (top center) and the nearby Turks and Caicos Islands (top left) — but the eastern tip of Cuba in the foreground remains in the clear air.

Observing #Earth – ISS Expedition 3

Image by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center
An Expedition 3 crew member on the International Space Station photographed Hurricane Michelle in November 2001. Captured here near Earth’s horizon, Hurricane Michelle made landfall on Cuba on November 4, 2001, with sustained winds of 135 miles per hour.

One of the long-standing experiments on the International Space Station is called Crew Earth Observations. The unique vantage point of Earth from space has allowed astronauts to capture some of the most compelling photographs ever seen. They are not only beautiful photographs, but also offer insight into how the planet is changing over time, from human-caused changes like urban growth and reservoir construction, to natural dynamic events such as hurricanes, floods and volcanic eruptions. Crew members have been photographing Earth from space since the early Mercury missions beginning in 1961. The continuous images taken from the space station ensure this record remains unbroken.

In celebration of Earth month, Marshall has posted images on Instagram of our planet beginning with Expedition 1 from 2000 all the way through the current Expedition 47.

Hugo Chavez DEAD at 58 – Passed Away and Died March 5, 2013 – News On Chavez Death and Biography

March 5th, 2013 The Death of the President of Venezuela Hugo Chavez died Tuesday due to his long and hard battle with cancer, his Next in Line Vice President Nicolas Maduro said in a News Report.

His VP Maduro teared up as he announced the news in a national broadcast.

Maduro said, plans for Chavez’s funeral would be announced.

Maduro said Chavez died Tuesday at exact;y 4:25 p.m. He did not say when the next elections would take place, or who would run the country in the interem.

“Our people can count on having a government of men and women committed to protecting them,” Maduro said.

The announcement came hours after Maduro met with the country’s top political and military leaders about Chavez’s worsening health condition and suggested someone may have deliberately infected Chavez with cancer.

Venezuela’s defense minister echoed Maduro’s calls for unity and peace.

Adm. Diego Molero said Venezuela’s military is in a “process of deploying … to ensure the safety of all Venezuelans” and to support the country’s constitution in the wake of Chavez’s death.

Molero pledged support to Maduro and National Assembly President Diosdado Cabello, two top officials who were close allies of the Venezuelan president.

Chavez first announced his cancer diagnosis in June 2011, but the government never revealed details about his prognosis or specified what kind of cancer he had.

He died nearly three months after his last public appearance.

The president was known for his frequent television broadcasts and lengthy speeches.

Shortly before his last trip to Cuba for cancer surgery in December, Chavez tapped Maduro as the man he wanted to replace him.

“He is one of the young leaders with the greatest ability to continue, if I cannot,” Chavez said.

Maduro made no mention of running for election in his public comments Tuesday, but he is widely expected to be the United Socialist Party of Venezuela’s candidate for the job.

After the announcement of Chavez’s death, state-run VTV showed images of people in the streets of Caracas crying and carrying posters with the late president’s picture.

Word of Chavez’s death drew swift expressions of sorrow and solidarity from regional allies.

“The national government expresses its solidarity in light of this irreparable loss that puts the Venezuelan people and all the region in mourning and at the same time sends its heartfelt condolences to the family of the late champion of Latin America,” Ecuador’s foreign ministry said in a statement.

Bolivian President Evo Morales’ voice cracked as he spoke to reporters, describing Chavez as someone “who gave all his life for the liberation of the Venezuelan people … of all the anti-imperialists and anti-capitalists of the world.”

But longtime critics of the controversial president offered a different take.

“Hugo Chavez was a destabilizing force in Latin America, and an obstacle to progress in the region,” said U.S. Rep. Mike Rogers, the Republican chairman of the House Intelligence Committee. “I hope his death provides an opportunity for a new chapter in U.S.-Venezuelan relations.”

Stunning Lyrids Over Earth at Night (NASA, International Space Station, 04/21-22/12)
cuba news
Image by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center
On the night of April 21, the 2012 Lyrid meteor shower peaked in the skies over Earth. While NASA allsky cameras were looking up at the night skies, astronaut Don Pettit aboard the International Space Station trained his video camera on Earth below. Footage from that night is now revealing breathtaking images of Earth at night with meteors ablating — or burning up — in the atmosphere.

The downlinked image to the right shows a very probable Lyrid in a six-second exposure, taken on April 22, 2012 at 5:34:22 UT. The International Space Station position was over 88.5 W, 19.9 N at an altitude of 392 km. NASA astronomer Bill Cooke mapped the meteor to the star field — seen in this annotated image — and confirmed that the meteor originated from the Lyrid radiant.

The image is rotated so that the north celestial pole (NCP) is roughly in the up direction. The lights of Florida are clearly visible to the right of the meteor. Cuba, the Florida Keys and the eastern Gulf Coast shoreline are also visible. Some brilliant flashes of lightning are also prevalent in the image.

TRUTHERGIRLS ACCURATELY PREDICT THE NEWS WHILE UNPLUGGED IN CUBA (How did we know?)

FB http://facebook.com/thetruthergirls
Jana and I try our hand at guessing what is in the news back home while totally cut off from it down in Cuba. As it turns out, we are pretty accurate. How did we know? Because they always focus the same types of stories over and over again. That is a basic propaganda technique to keep people’s focus on isolated things rather than general issues that affect their daily lives and that they might actually be able to do something about if they paid attention to them. Simple!

Supporters of US President Barack Obama are hoping his visit will give new momentum to his drive to advance Cuba’s human rights. But the Cuban government continues to dismiss dissidents as mercenaries seeking to destabilize the country.

For decades, Cubans fleeing their island home in search of a new life in the US have crossed the shark-infested waters in makeshift rafts. But when Jorge Armando Martinez decided to make the journey in February he chose a different method of transport: his windsurfing board. Thinking the voyage would last only a few hours, Martinez, 28, took only a bottle of water and a bag of sweets. He was at sea for four days.
