It is proven that Orlando is the number one destination to tourists, and that Central Florida Economy has bounced faster because of the tourism in this area. But we all know how important it is to recognize how much Brazilian tourists have contributed for this accelerated growth in consume, hotels revenue, shopping and taxes, generated by the constant growth of visitors.

It felt like a Broadway show, with beautiful costumes, music, and vibe, filled with the amazing acrobats, animals and a true Circus energy. For sure a delight for the kids that were watching it for the first time, and for the old Circus fans a great beautiful surprise, from the beginning to the end. This year they brought the idea of building the Circus from the ground up, had an opening coreography to enhance the theme and the setting was perfect!

A Clear Path (SPECIAL TOOLS, FINE TUNING) 2nd

The focus will be to perfect the attention. Our goal will be to increase the personal ability of:

As we speak about attention, its nice to know that, after a month has passed, your attention has kept intense and ◊ perceive the world in its real colors, dedicated to the subject, which we visited a month ago, in the previous ◊ perceive the connection between the article. events ocurrung in your life, We will stay the course, continue where we stopped and, just in case your memory has erased what was said before, it will be worth to revisit the subject and go through the previous article one more time.

◊ perceive the level of your participation/ responsibility in your own future and ◊ recognize the tools which might help you to build your real life.

Starting the journey is probably the Here, the development of the self most difficult part … because, by habit, discipline will be the basic tool to we are not used to pay much attention conduct you to your destiny, the to whatever happens around us. destiny you want to meet … To work Usually, we choose very carefully the in acquiring the ability to develop and subjects which interest us and don’t utilize the fine tuning, the use of intense pay much attention to anything else. discipline is basic, paramount! Only the Curiously, the more attractive subjects constant, daily work will capacitate us are usually the ones of lesser impact in to reach the needed level of perfection our personal growth and evolution as human beings. to reach the desired goal.


By Amy Litter Among all the subjects that are meant to bring meaningful and relevant transformation to our lives, very few will call our attention or interest us. Those are the subtle issues, uninteresting most of the time, not attractive at all, and we just don’t pay any attention to them. Due to lack of knowledge of the Laws of Life, without even been aware of it, throughout our existence, we throw away the greatest opportunity that was bestowed to us ‌ the opportunity to build our own desired destiny, at the same time that we participate in our personal growth, as human beings! Learning to concentrate, and dedicate our best attention to the world around us, is just the starting point. The power of complete focusing is, at the same time, one of our biggest challenges and at the same time the most important quality to help us train our total attention. The first step, to start the process of perfecting our attention is to learn how to concentrate. It is basic to understand the role of learning to concentrate; only this understanding will help us treat the exercise of concentration with the due relevance.

All that requires the act or activity of concentrating in relevant aspects of our lives should, from now on, reach a priority level, and be treated in a serious and dedicated way. We may achieve that goal, as we begin to identify which are those relevant aspects, according to our personal set of values. As we follow it, we will notice a few changes in our perceptions as some of the points of view seemingly important in the past begin to be dislodged by new values and perspectives. Determining which aspects have the biggest impact in our destiny, triggers internal change of values, maybe a process never spotted before. Observing the process carefully we will notice the personal research capturing only the most relevant aspects of life.

Before evaluating what are the main aspects of your life, consider carefully which ones will be included in your list. To begin with, any subject that is not integral part of your life should not be included in your exercise of concentration, so just leave it out ‌ (To be continued on next issue)


Um Claro Caminho (FERRAMENTAS ESPECIAIS, SINTONIZANDO) 2ª Parte E, por falar em atenção, depois de um mês, espero que sua atenção tenha se mantido intensa e dedicada ao assunto que dividimos em nosso artigo anterior. Vamos continuar de onde paramos e, se sua memória houver apagado o que foi dito, vale a pena, para relembrar, voltar e reler o artigo anterior. O desenvolvimento da auto-disciplina é a ferramenta básica que nos conduz a nosso destino, ao destino que desejamos atingir. Para adquirirmos a capacidade de utilizar a sintonia fina, a aplicação da disciplina é básica. Só seu desenvolvimento constante e diário poderá nos capacitar a atingir o nível de percepção necessário ao cumprimento da meta. Seu foco será aperfeiçoar a atenção. Nossa meta é a ampliação da capacidade pessoal de: ◊ perceber o mundo em suas cores reais,

Perceber a conexão entre os eventos que ocorrem em sua vida,

Perceber o nível de sua participação/ responsabilidade em seu próprio futuro e

Reconhecer as ferramentas que podem ajudar a construir sua vida. O início do caminho é a parte mais difícil ... porque nos acostumamos a não prestar muita atenção ao que se passa a nossa volta. Normalmente, escolhemos a dedo os assuntos pelos quais nos interessamos. Os que se mostram mais atraentes para nós, na maioria das vezes, são os de menor impacto em nossa evolução e crescimento como seres humanos. Daqueles que podem fazer a completa diferença em nossa vida poucos são os assuntos que despertam nosso interesse. Porque são sutis, aparentemente desinteressantes, sem graça nenhuma, não prestamos neles qualquer

atenção. E por desconhecimento de certas leis da vida, sem o querer, ao longo de nossa existência, jogamos fora a grande oportunidade que nos foi concedida de construirmos o destino desejado, ao mesmo tempo em que crescemos, como seres humanos. Aprendendo a concentrar é exatamente o ponto de partida. O poder da concentração absoluta é um de nossos maiores desafios e ao mesmo tempo a qualidade mais necessária quando tratamos de treinar a atenção. Então, o exercício inicial, que vai dar a partida para o aperfeiçoamento de nossa atenção, é o aprendizado da concentração. É importante entendermos o papel da concentração e tratarmos o exercício da concentração com a devida importância. Tudo o que encerra o ato ou atividade de nos concentrarmos em aspectos importantes de nosso dia a dia deverá ter prioridade e ser tratado com seriedade e dedicação. Para tanto temos que começar identificando quais seriam tais aspectos importantes, dentro de nossa escala de valores. E tal exercício irá, provavelmente, desalojar pontos de vista que mantivemos por um longo tempo. O exercício de determinar quais os aspectos de maior impacto em nosso destino, inicia um processo interior com o qual, talvez, nunca tenhamos lidado anteriormente. Por essa razão, é fator da maior importância observar com cuidado, antes de chegarmos a conclusões. Devemos ter em mente que, nesse caso, a pesquisa interior irá capturar somente aspectos de real importância. Antes de decidir sobre o que é da maior importância em sua vida, considere bastante se assuntos que não dizem respeito a sua vida serão incluídos nessa lista ou não. Para começar, se o assunto não lhe diz respeito, pode ficar de fora de seu exercício de concentração. (continua no próximo mês)

Ecoturismo

(visitantes e visitados)

“Ecoturismo é o segmento da atividade turística que utiliza, de forma sustentável, o patrimônio natural e cultural, incentiva sua conservação e busca a formação de uma consciência ambientalista por meio da interpretação do ambiente, promovendo o bem-estar das populações”.

Ecoturismo no Brasil

Este segmento é caracterizado pelo contato com ambientes naturais, pela realização de atividades que possam proporcionar a vivência e o conhecimento da natureza e pela proteção das áreas onde ocorre. Ou seja, assenta-se sobre o tripé: interpretação, conservação e sustentabilidade. Assim, o ecoturismo pode ser entendido como as atividades turísticas baseadas na relação sustentável com a natureza, comprometidas com a conservação e a educação ambiental.

No Brasil, no âmbito governamental, o ecoturismo é discutido desde 1985, quando a Embratur –Empresa Brasileira de Turismo, iniciou o projeto "Turismo Ecológico". A primeira iniciativa de ordenar a atividade ocorreu em 1987 com a criação da Comissão Técnica Nacional, constituída por técnicos do Ibama-Instituto Brasileiro do Meio Ambiente e da Embratur, para monitorar o Projeto de Turismo Ecológico, em resposta às práticas existentes à época - pouco organizadas e nada sustentáveis.

That is, rests on the tripod: interpretation, conservation and sustainability. Thus, ecotourism can be understood as tourism activities based on sustainable relationship with nature, committed to the conservation and environmental education.

Ecotourism should:

- Sustainable use of the natural heritage - Sustainable use of cultural heritage - Encourage the conservation of natural heritage - Encourage the conservation of cultural heritage - Pursue the formation of an environmental consciousness through the interpretation of the (half) environment - Promote the well-being of the people involved (visitors and visited)

Thus, ecotourism is directly related to the concept of sustainable tourism that relates to the needs of tourists and receiving regions while protecting and enhancing opportunities for the future. Include the management of economic and social resources and aesthetic needs while maintaining cultural integrity, essential ecological processes, biological diversity and life support systems.

It should be emphasized that what is understood or defined as "ecotourism" or "eco-tourism", in reality a collection of principles, is used widely and "commercial" as a way to promote travel, turning it into tourism sector as well as rural tourism, sports, etc.. This is a distorted view, that when used without complying with the sustainability criteria, with business acumen and "ecoportunista" must be prevented and combated.

CASA MULHER E VIDA UMA HISTÓRIA DE


AMOR E LUTA NO BRASIL By TÂNIA DAMI

Estava brincando, interagindo no facebook, no início de uma noite de Dezembro de 2012, quando uma mensagem caiu como um torpedo em meu mural, era a presidente da Casa Mulher e Vida, Vera Datola Iqueda, Instituição que acolhe portadores do vírus HIV, em Taubaté, uma cidade do interior de São Paulo, uma das metrópoles mais importantes do mundo. Na mensagem, a responsável pela ONG, me perguntava se eu fotografava, sugeri que conversássemos pelo inbox, então, ela me explicou que precisava de fotógrafos voluntários, para ajudá-la na campanha pela causa, Eu visto, um evento criado pela entidade, para arrecadar dinheiro, pois a instituição sobrevive com constantes dificuldades. Atendi ao apelo dela com tranqüilidade, em um feriado, aniversário da cidade e para lá fui, dedicar algumas horas do meu dia, da minha vida, às pessoas que precisam de apoio humano, um feito que tornou-se em uma experiência gratificante, ao ver o sorriso de tanta gente e de diversas idades participando, contribuindo para o trabalho dos voluntários da Casa, que lutam contra a maré, devido a falta de recursos, um evento que contou com as presenças, inclusive, de crianças autorizadas pelos pais e tantos outros adultos.


A presidente da organização, Srª Iqueda, é uma mulher que divide o seu tempo em família e esse projeto, para isso conta, apenas com voluntários, ou seja, não recebe nenhum incentivo de governos ou empresas e para realizar essa pequena campanha, ela e a psicóloga voluntária da instituição, Bruna Falleiros, invés tiram dinheiro do próprio bolso, para confeccionar algumas camisetas, com as quais diversas pessoas pousaram para uma sessão de fotos, para que posteriormente fossem vendidas. Motivos políticos, nunca devem sobrepor às necessidades humanas, entretanto o que observamos em alguns setores da nossa região, até mesmo por todo o País e provavelmente um problema crônico mundial, é o contrário. Siglas de partidos, estados psicológicos afetados de alguns representantes políticos, motivados às vezes por outros interesses, acabam impedindo o alcance do cumprimento do seu verdadeiro papel. A partir desse mês de janeiro de 2013, uma nova administração tomou posse da Prefeitura da cidade de Taubaté-SP e segundo informações obtidas, pelas organizadoras desse projeto, o novo prefeito, Ortiz Junior, incluirá apoio aos serviços prestados por essas voluntárias, já que a gestão municipal anterior, sempre ignorou a existência desse trabalho que equaliza em muito empe nho, renúncia, luta, coragem, preconceito e dificuldades.

positivas (HIV/AIDS) e seus familiares do município de Taubaté e região. A instituição possui toda a documentação que a habilita a funcionar, além de Certificados de Utilidade Pública Municipal e Estadual. A organização iniciou suas atividades no ano de 2004, após a colaboradora de uma ONG de atendimento a mulheres, em situação de violência perceber um crescente número desse gênero descobrindo-se com HIV/ AIDS e nenhuma oferta de suporte na região. Em 03 de Fevereiro de 2005, a entidade foi oficialmente fundada para que mulheres, mães, profissionais do sexo, donas de casa, trabalhadoras, usuárias de substâncias psicoativas e moradoras de rua tivessem um local de acolhida e atendimento específico para elas e suas famílias, entretanto, no decorrer de suas atividades, a instituição passou a ser procurada também por homens e pela população LGBTT. Assim sendo, ampliou seus serviços para todas as pessoas vivendo e convivendo com HIV/ AIDS. Segundo a ONU (OMS/WHO), o vírus da AIDS matou 25 milhões de pessoas pelo mundo desde o seu descobrimento nos anos 80. Estima-se que no Brasil, existam cerca de 530.000 pessoas infectadas pelo vírus HIV.O Brasil hoje esta perdendo a batalha contra a AIDS que já foi apelidada de Epidemia InvisívelMuito pode ser feito para ajudar a CASA M&V Para mais informações visite o Blog da ONG http://casamulherevida-vera.blogspot.com

International fashion icon, wife,

mother and entrepreneur, Kate Moss has been named the new face of Stuart Weitzman and will be showcased in the brand's global print campaign for spring 2013, photographed by Photo grapher Mario Testino. "I had a great time shooting the Stuart Weitzman campaign and I'm so happy to be the face of the brand this season," said Kate Moss. "Working with Mario Testino is always fun and it was wonderful meeting Stuart on set." This is the first time that Kate Moss has modeled in an American shoe designer advertising campaign that is strictly devoted to shoes in her two decade modeling career. She was selected as the new face of the brand because of her international fashion status as well as her personal trend-setting cult style. Kate Moss exudes a fashion sense that every woman aspires to emulate. Women want to dress like her, look like her and walk in her shoes... and now she's walking in Stuart Weitzman's. The Weitzman campaign, already regarded as breaking new ground for the industry with a unique visual vocabulary, becomes iconic with the “Kate” factor. The rare chemistry between photographer and subject is evident in the campaign shots. With its black & white photography, the imagery highlights the fact that Stuart Weitzman’s are the first thing you put on in the morning and the last thing you take off at night.

MPGe is the EPA-devised measure for determining how many miles an EV can travel on a quantity of battery-generated electricity that has same energy content as a gallon of gasoline. EPA testing also has indicated that, when fully charged, the Fiat 500e will travel about 87 miles, which is best-in-class and better than all U.S.-market EVs produced by highvolume manufacturers.In addition, the EPA estimates the annual cost to power the Fiat 500e is, coincidentally, $500. The estimate is calculated by factoring electricity price projections into 15,000 miles of travel at a vehicle's combined

city/highway performance rating. The Fiat 500e has a 116MPGe city/highway rating; its city-cycle rating is 122 MPGe. "The FIAT brand is about unique Italian style, fuel efficiency and great value. Now we have taken a page from our own playbook to change the expectations of what an electric vehicle can be," said Tim Kuniskis, Head of FIAT Brand North America. "Our environmentally sexy Fiat 500e offers a design proposition like no other, while delivering unsurpassed MPGe and class-leading range making our 500e a serious contender in the market."


• Industry-best 108 MPGe highway rating • Best-in-class EPA combined city/highway estimated driving range of 87 miles • Unsurpassed frugality with EPA-estimated annual fuelequivalent cost of $500 • EPA fuel consumption rate of just 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 miles • Fiat 500e arrives at FIAT Studios in California in second-quarter 2013 • The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has rated the stylish Fiat 500e's highway-cycle performance at 108 MPGe, which is unsurpassed by any electric vehicle (EV) on the U.S. market. EPA testing estimates the car's energy-consumption rate at just 29 kilowatt hours (kWh) per 100 miles. Further, the Fiat 500e scores a perfect "10" on two EPA scales that reward vehicles for low tailpipe emissions. The battery-electric Fiat 500e is, of course, a zero-emissions vehicle. The 2013 500e builds on the Fiat brand's successful smallcar formula, while adding an all-new, battery-electric powertrain that produces 111 horsepower (83 kW). It recharges in less than 4 hours with its Level 2 (240 volt) on-board

charging module (OBCM). Supplementing its distinctive styling cues are eight efficiency-inspired exterior enhancements that contribute to a 13 percent improvement in aerodynamics, compared with the already fashionable Fiat 500 Lounge.

This 3-CD + DVD box set will be available everywhere January 29, 2013, through Columbia/Legacy, a division of SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENTLive In Europe 1967 (released September 2011), the debut entry in the Miles Davis Bootleg Series, was by far the most acclaimed historic jazz box set of 2011.

Live In Europe 1967 was ranked the #1 reissue in both the Critics and Readers polls of JazzTimes magazine, and the Jazz Journalists Association voted it Best Historical or Boxed Set. The package received an “A” from Entertainment Weekly, and Pitchfork.com said “At its heart, jazz thrives on bold, sensitive interaction in the moment, and Live In Europe 1967 represents the pinnacle of that practice.” Rave reviews appeared in a wide array of publications including the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, The Nation, Slate, and many others.

The Miles-Shorter-Corea-Holland-DeJohnette lineup (in tandem with other players) began to solidify during the 1968-’69 recording dates that became the Filles De Kilimanjaro and In a Silent Way albums. And they were at the core of the dozen or so musicians joined “After we finished In a Silent Way,” Miles told his together by Miles in August 1969, for the principal biographer Quincy Troupe (in the definitive Miles The sessions that became the landmark turning point of his Grammy Award®-winning Bitches Brew. But the ‘third great quintet’ by itself was never documented in the recording studio. Their European tours of 1969, represented on this new package, are some of the only existing recordings of the group, and the first legitimately released audio recordings by this stellar lineup. Underscoring their official debut here, over 43 years later, is a superbly shot multi-camera color DVD of the band at its hottest in Berlin in November, 1969. Miles is seen in the best of health in 1969, eating a macrobiotic diet (along with the other band members), and avoiding drugs. As a result, his playing was never stronger than on these 1969 conAutobiography, Simon & Schuster, 1990), “I took the certs, with his chops at an absolute peak. band out on the road; Wayne, Dave, Chick, and Jack DeJohnette were now my working band.

Legacy Recordings Commemo- terial. rates Janis Joplin's 70th Birthday Honoring Iconic Singer As Label's First Artist Of The Month In January 2013 The Pearl Sessions Nominated For 2013 Best Album Notes Grammy Award Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, commemorates the life and music of Janis Joplin on the occasion of the singer’s 70th birthday and celebrates the iconic electric blues singer as the label’s first Artist of the Month in January 2013.

The Pearl Sessions includes a new essay penned by Holly George-Warren, currently in the running for this year’s Best Album Notes Grammy Award. In her notes, George-Warren zeroes in on “A Woman Left Lonely,” one of the last songs recorded by Joplin, observing, “For Janis, though, the song’s sentiments seemed a fact of life. For us, an ultimate sacrifice that resulted in some of the best music of the 20th century: ‘They asked me, “How did you learn to sing the blues like that?”’ Janis said, a mere three months before her death. ‘I just opened my mouth and that’s what I sounded like ... you can’t make up something that you don’t feel. You give up every constant in the world except music. That’s the only thing in the world you got.’”

Legacy’s Artist of the Month will provide fresh perspectives on musical legends whose sounds continue to effect people’s lives. Each month, the series will offer new fans and deep aficionados alike the opportunity to focus on an essential cornerstone catalog of Born January 19, 1943, in Port Arthur, pop music history.

In 1963, she headed to San Francisco, where she met guitarist Jorma Kaukonen, her first link to the HaightAshbury underground music scene. By 1966, Janis had joined, and was ostensibly fronting, the psychedelicrock band Big Brother and the Holding Company.

Big Brother's "Piece of My Heart," on 1968's Cheap Thrills LP, shot to #12 on the Billboard Hot 100, the album sold a million copies in a month, and Joplin became a sensation - earning rapturous praise from Time and Vogue, appearing on The Dick Cavett Show and capturing the imagination of audiences that had never experienced such fiery intensity in a female rock singer.

Janis Joplin’s recordings and filmed performances have secured her status as an enduring cultural con, inspiring countless imitators and musical devotees. Myriad hit collections, live anthologies and other repackaged releases have kept her legend alive, as have one-woman shows such as the hit Love, Janis (which Joplin’s sister, Laura, helped create) and 2009’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe “Best Solo Performance” nominee Janis. A documentary produced by Alex Gibney, Susan Lacy and Jeff Jampol, directed by Amy Berg (“West Of Memphis”) is now in production. One Night with Janis Joplin, a critically acclaimed currently touring production, has played to soldout houses in Portland, Cleveland and Washington, DC, and has received nine Broadway World and two Cleveland Critic Circle Awards nominations.

Her emergence as a solo star was inevitable; she put together her own outfit, the Kozmic Blues Band, and in 1969 released I Got Dem Ol' Kozmic Blues Again Mama! which went gold. That year also saw her perform at the WoodIn 1988, the Janis Joplin bronze sculpture stock festival. by artist Douglas Clark, was unveiled in Port Arthur. Joplin was inducted into the

She was developing an extravagant persona, both on-stage and off, her passionate performances matched by an iconic sartorial splendor that's become visually synonymous with the era. Janis and Big Brother's increasingly high-profile shows earned them a devoted fan base and serious industry attention; they signed with Columbia Records and released their major-label debut in 1967. Joplin's seismic presence, as evidenced by her shattering performance at the Monterey Pop Festival, was captured for posterity by filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker.

Her final studio album, the landmark Pearl, introduced signature material including Kris Kristofferson’s “Me and Bobby McGee” and her own a cappella plaint, “Mercedes Benz,” while showcasing her mastery of virtually all pop genres. The latter song was, along with a phone-message birthday greeting for John Lennon, the last thing she recorded; she died in October of 1970, and Pearl was released posthumously the following year. The quadrupleplatinum set became the top-selling release of Joplin’s career and, in 2003, was ranked #122 on Rolling Stone’s “500 Greatest Albums of All Time.”

Columbia / Legacy Recordings marcaram 2012 com o lançamento de dois novos títulos essenciais ao catálogo rock-soul de blues por excelência: Janis Joplin - Pearl Sessions, um conjunto de discos de estréia de duas gravações de estúdio recém-descobertas produzidas por Paul Rothchild , foi lançado em abril, precedido pelo Big Brother & The Holding Company com Janis Joplin - Live at the Ballroom Carousel 1968, um concerto de corpo inteiro eletrizante gravado e produzido para a liberação pelo lendário engenheiro de som Owsley

Pearl Session inclui um novo ensaio escrito por Holly George-Warren, atualmente na corrida para Best Album Notes Grammy Award. Em suas notas, George-Warren denota em “A Woman Left Lonely,”uma das últimas músicas gravadas por Joplin, “Para Janis, porém, os sentimentos da canção pareciam um fato da vida. Para nós, um último sa crifício que resultou em uma das melhores músicas do século 20:. Ele relata ‘Eles me perguntaram: “Como você aprendeu a cantar o blues assim?”’ Janis disse, apenas três meses antes de sua morte “Eu só abri a boca e isso foi como soou ... você não pode fazer algo que você não sente. você desiste de cada constante no mundo, exceto a música. isso é a única coisa no mundo que você realmente tem. “

World Premiere of “Pro-Fracking” Documentary

DOCUMENTARY

FrackNation, the controversial film that will tell the truth about fracking, will premiered in Manhattan at 7:30 pm ET on Monday, January 7, at the Chelsea Cinema. The red carpet premiere in Manhattan came as Promised Land, Matt Damon’s anti-fracking movie partially funded by the United Arab Emirates, opens across the country.

FrackNation features investigative journalist Phelim McAleer on a journey that takes him across America to find the truth about fracking. As he asked environmentalists difficult questions about their often emotional campaigns against fracking, McAleer was met with bogus lawsuits, slammed doors and gun threats. The film is co-directed by a tightly knit “It’s time Hollywood celebrities and en- team of three directors: Phelim McAleer, vironmentalists were asked some diffi- his wife Ann McElhinney and their colcult questions about their anti-fracking league Magdalena Segieda. activities and ideologies.

Here are some of the testimonies and pictures they sent us:


Being new to the subject we researshed and found definitions only and all of it shows the division in opinion to many asked about. We believe that the documentary will bring lots of clarification to the subject. Nothing is as clear as the testimonies of people that live the situation. “So what exactly is fracking? It is a method of extracting under-ground natural gas and oil. Water mixed with sand and chemicals is injected into the ground at high pressure to fracture the rock around wells drilled for this purpose.

The demand would place additional heavy burdens on Flori-da’s communities and economy.

Como somos novatos ao assunto fizemos uma breve pesquisa e constatamos uma vasta divisão de opiniões. Acreditamos que o documentário esclarecera muitas duvidas . Nada como o testemunho de pessoas que viveram a situação. “Então,o que exatamente é fracking? É um método de extração de gás natural e do petróleo do subsolo. Uma mistura de água com areia e produtos químicos é injetada no solo a uma pressão elevada que leva à fratura da rocha em torno de poços perfurados com a finalidade de libertar o gás ou o óleo, que é então bombeado para fora.

Um número de toxinas, incluindo muitas vezes diesel, benzeno e pesticidas, são adicionados à água antes de ser injetado para dentro da terra. Poucos estudos formais têm sido realizados para avaliar os impactos da contaminação potencial da água potável. Já, as comunidades em toda a América estão divididos sobre a questão do fracking. As companhias de petróleo e gás continuam a criar hype sobre o número de empregos criados e eventuais benefícios econômicos.

Eli Klein Fine Art Apresenta Zhang Dali: Uma Retrospectiva Até o dia 18 de fevereiro de 2013 Eli Klein Fine Art, uma das mais importantes galerias de América especializadas em arte contemporânea chinesa, tem o prazer de anunciar que irá apresentar uma exposição retrospectiva que caracteriza o trabalho de um dos artistas mais dinâmicos da China, Zhang Dali. Apresentando peças de sua série mais célebre, esta exposição reflete sobre o crescimento e desenvolvimento sem precedentes que a China experimentou quando expandiu seus contatos com o resto do mundo nos anos 90. Esta exposição poderá ser vista na Eli Klein Fina Arte até 18 de fevereiro de 2013. Grande parte da arte de Zhang Dali centra-se no ambiente em rápida mutação na China. Sua série, Diálogo e um pouco mais tarde, a série Demolição, destacam a modernização forçada de Pequim.

de vários slogans propagandísticos chineses das ruas de Pequim em suas pinturas. Embora civis sentem-se dormentes a esses slogans onipresentes, eles estão, inconscientemente, profundamente influenciados. Em 2003, Zhang Dali iniciou sua pesquisa a fotografias históricas divulgados por pu blicações oficialmente sancionados e criou Segunda História, uma série de 130 obras. O artista coletou essas imagens históricas - que foram alteradas pelo governo para fins de propaganda politica - ele então combinou com imagens originárias do mesmo negativo, examinando as formas como as alterações foram utilizadas. Este corpo de trabalho permite a muitos chineses para verem pela primeira vez a realidade por tras das imagens tao conhecidas por eles. A série mais recente, Shadow World, traz o artista para um novo meio. Fotogramas permitem Zhang Dali a explorar a interação física e alegórica entre sombras e objetos. A natureza transitória das sombras brinca com temas centrais para Zhang Dali; a natureza é substituída por concreto e aço, a tradição é substituída pela modernização, e cada um só deixa uma sombra de sua passagem.

Dalata portraits life in a place not too distant, where mutants are brought to light naturally, in scenarios and characters of a playful universe. In his peculiar psychedelic style entitled "Exciting Bizarre". Also recognized for using irregular surfaces, which makes his interventions in degraded sites interactive with the nature of the place.

He explores the nature of stains, mold, cracks and all kinds of deformations that the environment has to offer, the infinite interpretations of his work is one of the his trademarks.Opening the doors for a dialogue between his art and the public.

HERE IS WHAT WE ASKED: At what age you started to paint and drawing? I started as a child early starting at 2 3 years I was already drawing a few things. Did you have an inspiration? A person who encouraged you? In my house my sisters were always related to art, painting and drawing a little.... I have 4 sisters and 1 brother, all my sisters drew, except my brother who never did ... But I am really the only one that kept the dream, until today . You spoke of Europe, where you will expose? We’re talking ... probably Frankfurt, London, and Amsterdam ... in 2013 Where did your art begin? On canvas, paper, or on the streets? I started drawing on the streets ... by 14 with graffiti and street art at 21.

have such a talented artist in our magazine. Despite the taboo that an artist must have an academic backgroung in order to succeed or even to be considered a real Artist, we beg to differ. An artist is a person that can transform an idea, change its surroundings and elevate human nature to a better place.

Art is manifestation of our spirit, and one of the most used to reach out for the masses. By photography, painting, graffity or sculpture, art is above all human, from the heart, and should not require a diploma to be proven real. Art is a legacy, and someone like Andre Dalata is leaving his legacy, his trademark. In a Country where many kids lack of a role model he brings a light to them, and at the same time shows the world what the Brazilian Art has to offer.

Passeando pela pintura, o desenho e a escultura,o artista cria um mundo próprio voltado para o positivismo, Dalata retrata a vida em um lugar não muito distante, onde seres mutantes trazem a tona naturalmente, cenários e personagens de um universo lúdico, em um jogo de formas pensantes no denominado estilo bizarro.

A Arte Origami por Sandra Gobert


edmundo cavalcanti

Conheçam agora um pouco mais de Sandra.

Como e quando se dá o seu primeiro contato com as Artes?

Aos cinco anos de idade, neste período meu pai foi procurado por uma pessoa da igreja onde frequentava, para ajudar um homem estrangeiro que estava sem moradia, naquela época abrir as portas da sua casa para ajudar um desconhecido não era algo absurdo, então como esse homem estava desempregado resolveu fazer desenhos para vender e ajudar nas despesas de casa, então me lembro como se fosse ontem (aos cinco anos de idade) esse homem desenhando em uma folha de papel grande com giz de cera, era lindo, diferente e tinha uma força inexplicável, fiquei encantada, ali foi o meu primeiro contato visual com a arte, anos mais tarde, comecei a desenhar como ele e acrescentar novos elementos e enfim dando significado, as formas que ia criando, depois passei a utilizar tinta óleo. Meu trabalho teve grande influência técnica dessa pessoa que passou por nossas vidas e que nunca mais ouvi falar Como foi a escolha do curso de faculdade? Escolhi o curso porque desde muito pequena era apaixonada por desenho, amava co-

lorir, experimentar novos materiais, sempre com o objetivo de deixar minha casa mais bela com cópias de imagens que gostava, tudo muito autodidata, só que em um determinado momento sabia que precisaria me aprofundar no universo da arte. Meus pais não me apresentaram a vida e a obra dos artistas, mais me davam materiais para pintar desenhar e etc., a escola também só se detinha ao “fazer arte”, que na realidade era apenas um fazer manual, sem significado algum, não exigia o pensar e refletir e muito menos criar, na realidade só tive acesso ao conhecimento dos artistas, dos movimentos artísticos da leitura de imagens, interpretação de imagens na faculdade, então percebi o quando esse estudo era importante para o meu desenvolvimento pessoal como artista e principalmente como professora. Foi como se o meu horizonte tivesse aberto uma porta de infinitas possibilidades então eu não podia mais guardar esse conhecimento que abre portas e nos faz enxergar a luz só para mim, tive que expandir.

Estudou artes Universidade Católica de Salvador, licenciada em educação artística com habilitação em artes plásticas pela UFPE-Universidade Federal de Pernambuco é também professora de artes. Já aos 5 anos de idade ficava em estado de êxtase diante das cores, na adolescência desenhava e se envolvia com o fazer criativo. Com influencias na abstração de Kandinsky e pinturas com motivações espirituais, Sandra desenvolve um trabalho peculiar.

Quando você começou a trabalhar com artes plásticas? Comecei a pintar mais ou menos aos 18 anos de forma autodidata sem pretensão alguma, experimentando as cores, copiando imagens; mas somente em 2001 que comecei a me aprofundar nessa área e fazer estudos mais profundos sobre os trabalhos que produzia.

Quais são suas principais influências? Influência nas formas e cores foi desse homem desconhecido. Na realidade é difícil falar de influências, pois só fui conhecer a vida e obras de artistas em torno dos 18 anos quando já pintava, mas sempre me encantou a arte Japonesa. Mokiti Okada me influenciou com relação à parte espiritual e sua missão e atualmente Kandinsky e a abstração tem sido minha inspiração.


A religiosidade também é outro traço marcante em seus trabalhos. Como isso começou? Na realidade desde muito jovem busquei respostar para a minha existência, a busca pela espiritualidade, pelos conhecimentos espirituais, a liberdade para escolher o caminho espiritual que queria seguir em casa me proporcionou essa liberdade, a evolução sempre foram e são importantes para minha vida. Nós estamos aqui para evoluir e colocar em prática diariamente aquilo que aprendo com a espiritualidade independente da religião, pois aprender com tudo e todos e principalmente praticar o que aprendi e se possível transformar isso em arte, para que mesmo de forma inconsciente atinja a alma de cada pessoa, isso é o importante para o meu ser e daqueles que me rodeiam. Como é o seu processo criativo em si? O que te inspira... um filme, livro... De onde vem esse primeiro impulso para produzir. Meu impulso e ou processo criativo vem da necessidade de dividir com as pessoas, algo que foi importante para o meu crescimento espiritual, mesmo que as pessoas não compreendam a energia positiva e transformadora ao observar a obra está lá de forma invisível na pintura. Jamais pinto quando não estou muito bem, pois quero dividir com as pessoas essa energia positiva da criação. E se consigo também uma forma bela e iluminada fico satisfeita. Os textos, ensinamentos, situações que vivi, um filme, tudo pode me inspirar, normalmente escolho o conteúdo da obra (espírito) depois crio a forma da obra (matéria), lei da ordem espírito precede matéria. Se você fosse resumir em poucas palavras o significado das Artes na sua vida... Quando se trata de uma arte de alto nível espiritual ela representa em minha vida uma ponte para o infinito a luz que acolhe a alma, e que deveria se expandir por todas as partes. A arte é uma produção intelectual primorosa, onde as emoções estão inseridas no contexto da criação, porém na historia da arte, vemos que muitos artistas são derivados de outros, seguindo técnicas e movimentos artísticos através do tempo, você possui algum modelo ou influencia de algum artista? Quem seria? Não posso dizer que derivei de nenhum movimento artístico, pois nunca me preocupei com isso, ape-

nas pintava, Wassily Kandinsky na realidade tem uma afinidade muito grande com os meus pensamentos, mas penso que devo começar um novo movimento artístico, uma nova forma de pensar sobre as artes, por isso que criei esse nome arte transmaterial ou movimento transmaterial da arte, minha preocupação é no rumo que muitos seguimentos da arte têm tomado e a péssima influencia que tem dado aos jovens e adolescentes. Nós artistas somos sim responsáveis pelo que produzimos como arte, pois temos o poder de elevar o ser humano aos níveis mais elevados da alma e para isso devemos polir em primeiro lugar o nosso ser ou degradar o ser humano aos níveis mais baixos. O que a arte representa para você? (Pois é sabido que muitos artistas usam a arte para expressarem seus sentimentos e impressões de mundo, porém existem aqueles que apenas o fazem como forma de hobby ou passa-tempo, para dar uma pausa no estresse do dia-a-dia).Se estivermos falando da arte que é socializada com um grande número de pessoas, a arte se torna algo mais sério do que as pessoas imaginam, pois não se trata de uma simples ação ou expressão dos sentimentos, emoções, paixões ou indignação do artista, mas ela é simplesmente o veículo que contribui para a evolução ou degradação do ser humano, neste caso a arte tem um peso grande. não possui o peso do conteúdo, ou seja, do espírito da obra que se comunica com o espírito do contemplador (então ela não possui a dimensão e o peso da mensagem).

Você trabalha e faz origami, inclusive, incorporado aos seus quadros. Por quê? Qual o significado disso? O origami na realidade é considerado artesanato, normalmente, quando faço uma peça ela não é única e se repetirá quantas vezes eu achar necessário, isso é uma característica do artesanato, a maioria deles não possui significado é apenas uma peça decorativo, muito diferente das pinturas que faço. São várias coisas que me encantaram e me encantam no origami, entre elas é a capacidade de uma única folha de papel se transformar em várias


sandra gobert São várias coisas que me encantaram e me encantam no origami, entre elas é a capacidade de uma única folha de papel se transformar em várias formas diferentes e sair do bidimensional para o tridimensional, me faz refletir e comparar ao ser humano quanto mais se estuda e mais conhece as coisas, mais profundo ele fica, ou seja, ele sai da bidimensão para a tridimensão. Outra característica é que para se dobrar uma peça de origami é necessário respeitar a ordem, dobrando etapa por etapa, caso contrário não conseguiremos chegar a um resultado final, assim é a vida, quando desrespeitamos a ordem natural das coisas o resultado não é bom e por último o origami me ensinou que apesar de ser feito em um material frágil como o papel e possui um curto período de vida, isso não o faz menos importante e ou de pouco valor, mas o tempo que nos encantou; assim é o ser humano, frágil, e nem por isso tem menos valor. Futuramente penso em transformar essa técnica artesanal do origami em arte conceitual. Quais as técnicas que você usa para expressar suas ideias?

Todo artista tem seu mentor, aquela pessoa a quem você se espelhou, que te incentivou e te inspirou a seguir essa carreira, indo adiante e levando seus sonhos a outros patamares de expressão, quem é essa pessoa e como ela te introduziu no mundo das artes? Acredito que Mokiti Okada me inspirou e me inspira e provavelmente tenha de certa forma me introduzido sim no mundo das Artes, através de seu exemplo de vida (palavras, pensamentos e principalmente a ação, e pela incessante busca da verdade, do bem e do belo). A busca pelo simples, porém profundo, fazer o máximo utilizando o mínimo, não ficar preso a forma, são ensinamentos Importantes desse Mestre que visa à qualidade de vida do ser humano através, da arte, terapia e agricultura natural. Mas, temos mestres em todos os lugares basta ter sensibilidade na alma. Sandra mostra em seu perfil do Facebook, muitos de seus trabalhos.

Sandra Gobert Sandra Gobert was born in Brasilia on December 23rd, 1974. She studied arts at the Catholic University of Salvador, graduated in visual arts and specialization in arts education UFPE-Universidade Federal de Pernambuco. She also teaches Arts. Even at 5 years old she was in a state of amaze whenever she encountered colors. During adolescence she started drawing and got involved with her creative mind. With influences in the abstraction of Kandinsky and paintings with spiritual motivations, Sandra developed a unique line of work. Know a little more about Sandra. How and when you had your first contact with the Arts? When I was age five, I remember that my father was approached by a person from church, to help a foreign man who was homeless. At that time it wasn’t unusual to open the doors to help a stranger, it was not an absurd, then the unemployed man resolved to make drawings to sell and help with the expenses at our home, and I remember like it was yesterday (at age five) this man drawing on a large sheet of paper with crayons, it was beautiful, and had a different inexplicable force, I was blown away! That was my first contact with visual art. Years later, as I started drawing more, adding new elements giving meaning, and creating forms, I introduced using oil paint to my work, and things started changing . My work had a great influence from that person who went through our lives and we never heard from him again. How was your choice of College subject made? I chose the course because since very little I was passionate about drawing, loved coloring, tried new materials, always aiming to make my home more beautiful with copies of pictures I liked, all very self-taught, except that at a certain moment I knew I needed to dive into the world of art. My parents introduced me to the life and work of artists, gave me more material to draw and paint etc., At school we only had to "make art", which in reality was just a manual meaningless, iniciative, that did not require to think and reflect and create. Actually we only had access to knowledge of artists, art movements, image reading, and image interpretation in college. When I realized that the study was important for my personal development as an artist and especially as a teacher, it was like my horizon

had opened, and a door with endless possibilities along with it. Soon I could not keep the knowledge that these opens doors gave me, or all the light that came to me. I had to expand. When did you start working with arts? I started painting at about 18 years of age, self-taught, without any pretense, experiencing the colors, copying images, but only in 2001 that I began to dive into this area and make deeper studies of the work I produced. What are your main influences? Influence on the shapes and colors were all from the unknown man. In reality it is difficult to speak of influences, because only I know the life and work of artists around the age of 18 when he painted it, but I was always enchanted with the Japanese art. Mokiti Okada influenced me regarding spiritual part and its mission and currently Kandinsky and abstraction has been my inspiration. Religiosity is another striking feature in his works. How did it start? In fact since very young I looked for answers for my existence, the quest for spirituality, the spiritual knowledge, the freedom to choose the spiritual path I wanted gave me this freedom, evolution always were and are an important ipart n my life. We are here to develop and put into practice what we learn daily with spirituality, regardless of religion, as we learn from everything and everyone and especially to practice what we learn and if possible turn it into art, so even unconsciously reach out for the soul of each person, it is important for myself and those around me. How is your creative process ? What inspires you ... a movie, book ... When comes this first impulse to produce art?. My impulse and creative process come from the need to share, something that was important to my spiritual growth, even if people do not understand the positive and transforming power when they observe my work it is there, in invisible form. I never paint when I'm not well, because I want to share with people that positive energy of creation. And if I can transcend beauty and clarity I’m satisfied. The texts, teachings, lived situations, a movie, anything can inspire me, usually I choose the content of the work (spirit) then I create the shape of the work (matter), in the law of order spirit precedes matter. If you were to summarize in a few words the meaning


of the Arts in your life ... When it comes to art with a highly spiritual level it represents a bridge to the infinite light that welcomes the soul, and should expand everywhere. Art is an exquisite intellectual production, where emotions are embedded in the context of creation, but in art history, we see that many artists are derived from others, following technical and artistic movements through time, do you have some type of influence of an artist? Who would it be? Â I can not say I derive from any artistic movement, because I never bothered with that, just painting, Wassily Kandinsky actually has a great affinity with my thoughts, but I think we should start a new artistic movement, a new way of thinking about the arts, so I created this name transmaterial art or transmaterial art movement. My concern is the direction that many segments of art have taken and bad influences that have given to youth and adolescents. We artists are responsible for what we produce as art, because we have the power to lift the human being to the highest levels and for this we must first polish our being or we degrade the human being at the lower levels. What does art mean to you? (For it is known that many artists use art to express their feelings and impressions of the world, but those who will only do so as a hobby or pastime, to take a break from the stress of day-to-day). If we're talking about the art that is socialized with a large number of people, art becomes something more serious than people realize because it is not a simple action or expression of feelings, emotions, passions or anger, but it is simply a vehicle which contributes to the development or deterioration of the human being, If art is just a hobby, it probably is a decorative art, which works only technical issues, and does not have the weight of important contents, the work spirit has no meaning What techniques do you use to express your ideas? All the techniques and materials may be used. Depend on the local situation or occasion, but I like working with paint, canvas or paper. Every artist has his mentor, the person to whom you mirror yorself, you're encouraged by and inspired you to pursue this career, going ahead and taking your

dreams to new heights of expression, who is that person, and how he introduced you to the world of arts ? I believe Mokiti Okada inspired me and probably has introduced me to some extent to the world of Art. Through his example of life (words, thoughts and especially actions, and the relentless pursuit of truth, goodness and beauty ). The search for simple, yet profound, making the most using the least, are Important teachings that the Master that envisions the quality of human life through art, natural agriculture and therapy. But we can find teachers everywhere we just have to be sensitive. You work and make Origami and even incorporated into your paintings. Why? What does it mean? The origami is actually considered a craft, normally, when I make a piece, it will be repeated as many times as I find it necessary, it is a feature of the craft, most of them have no meaning it is just a decorative piece, a lot different than the paintings I do. There are several things that enchant me and I am delighted with origami, It is the ability of a single sheet of paper to transform into several different forms and go from two-dimensional to three-dimensional, it makes me reflect and I compare it to human nature, the more we study, the deeper it gets. Another feature is the folding of an origami piece, it is necessary to comply with the order, folding step by step, otherwise we can not reach a final result, so is life when disrespecting the natural order of things the result is not good and finally origami taught me that despite being made in ​​ a brittle material like paper and has a short life span, that does not make it any less important and or of little value, but the time that enchanted us, and so is the human, fragile, and even so it has less value. I think in the future this technique transforming origami craft in conceptual art.
