Motivates me to go into the Hall to pick up a box of marquetry, size 17 x 23 x 4 cm., which I delivered at the close of a Congress in Granada, a few years ago. If you’ve had in your hands a case of this type you percibiras the beauty of their drawings, their colors and softness that surrounds it. But if precious was for me the detail of the chest or jeweler, most valued is that contained within: a book of poetic anthology titled and the South (the singularity in the present Andalusian poetry), edited in February 1997 (printed in the workshops of the Crown of the South). I believe that detail for two reasons: by the anthology itself, performed by Jose Garcia (anthologist) and because it was lucky to coordinate their editing. The Organizing Committee of the Congress wanted to offer something different and special. A friend told me about the idea of editing an anthology of poets. I asked me proposing and document the project and convinced once proposed to the Executive Committee, the idea seemed good and authorized the corresponding budget headings additional.

Gave attendees a copy within a bag designed for that moment. Gave to presenters and honorees the book inside the box of marquetry. By extension, I’m going to ignore all the laborious process of editing work and just thank the team of collaborators the excellent work done. The press conference of presentation of the book was a success unprecedented for poetry in general and for us in particular, since it led to a debate about two currents of poetic thought existing in those moments in our country. The news was published in the newspapers of national circulation (ABC, El Pais, El Mundo, etc.) and in all the of provincial level. Equally, national television, the Andalusian and local spoke of the event. Nor radio lagged behind, with several interviews and coverage of the news.

In synthesis, a celebrity or unexpected laurel who, undoubtedly, had repercussions on the dissemination of the Congress itself. The poets included were the following: Manuel Alcantara, Maria Victoria Atencia, Juana Castro, Carlos Clementson, Juan Drago, Antonio Enrique, Domingo F. Failde, Francisco Fortuny, Concha Garcia, angel Garcia Lopez, Rafael Guillen, Antonio Hernandez, Rafael Inglada, Manuel Jurado Lopez, Jose Lupianez, Aurora Luque, Manuel Mantero, Manuel Moya, Pilar Paz Ommastrephidae, Francisco Peralto, Manuel Rios Ruiz, Antonio Rodriguez Jimenez, Pedro Rodriguez Pacheco, Francisco Ruiz Noguera, Jose Antonio SaezMaria Sanz, Jose Sarria, Rafael Soto Verges, Juan Jose Tellez Rubio and Fernando Villena. Riders of the silence of Jose Sarria, friend and one of the poets who participated ended with poetry: there is nothing more eloquent than silence.Jose Gaitan I’ve seen came galloping tended, from afar cabalganAnte my ojosPortando the thickness of the horasMuertas. They are the riders of silence.

Good Interview

At last, as much I know that almost nothing I know that for little I do not give up the pretension to teach something that I think can be useful. In the lines that follow would like to give some contribution for new or old journalists, broadcasters, blogueiros, presenters of TV, interviewers, interviewed or future interviewed in general, on as to make, or at least trying to make, an interesting interview as a to be heard, visa or read chat, depending on the way where he will be propagated: TV, radio, site, magazine or periodical. I will use method similar to step by step, but only facilitating the things and not for better assuming of what nobody the point to me to have some truth to declare, since the intention, and of the good ones, is at least to help. I do not know if they agree, but a good interview in such a way can depend on the quality of the answers of the interviewed one how much of the quality of the questions of the interviewer and for this she is necessary to observe some criteria, therefore all the people, celebrities or do not bring histories that, if explored well, can be to relieve beautiful interviews. Tips for who will be interviewed for the first time Elaborate, in way sucinta and send for the interviewer, a historical briefing, in which they do not lack its name, nickname will be had, age (if not to want to hide), profession, main subject that will be boarded, subjects of interest, peculiarities of its life and it intends that them to have explored in the interview, citation of known people with which it had some history that can be explored in the interview. If you will be somebody already famous, obviously to prevent (it will be the case) to cite ackward facts and that they cannot be checked how much to the veracity, at last to make a synopsis capable to provide to the interviewer the necessary exploration for a good interview.

PowerPC Console

On the other hand, the Wii has a much more modest figures. CPU, with the code name of Broadway, is no more than a chip of a PowerPC – supposedly to 729 MHz-based core and GPU – designed only by ATI, and call Hollywood-runs at 243 MHz. Main memory is 64 MB, to which must be added other 24 MB – to ensure compatibility with Gamecube – and a few humble 3 auxiliary MB to save textures. It is clear that the gross horsepower is not the greatest virtue of the Wii, and indeed Nintendo never speaks of the technical data when it presents its console. Even so, it is a machine that has still not been exploited properly, since developers are too comfortable programming as if it were a slightly enhanced Gamecube, and is hoped that second-generation titles demonstrate the true potential of the console. Reading and saving information while Wii and Xbox 360 have a DVD drive capable of reading dual layer discs, Sony have opted for Blu-Ray – accommodating up to six times higher for its Playstation 3 console.

This decision has made the price of this latest machine to rise considerably, but to change series of support which is one of the standard bearers of high definition are available. The Xbox 360 reads DVD-Video without need an extra accessory, and there is a HD-DVD drive optional which allows playback of movies in this format. On the other hand, the Wii cannot be used currently to see our DVDs, although Nintendo have announced a model that will have this feature thanks to additional software. On the other hand, the Playstation 3 and Wii units are slot-in and do not emit excessive noise during playback, whereas on Xbox 360 the reader is tray, and for some reason is one of the main factors of particular noise generated by the console during its operation.
