ART IN THE LUNGS OF TIME

The poetry;
that may rouse flesh off bones,
shake power from the steel-made thrones or make cruel hands wriggle in fear,
might have been squeezed into bins,
burning off slowly in a fireplace,
or lying undiscovered on walls and boxes, like lost toys.

The sheet that may save the world from its ruin
or set it to flames,
may be hanging in the stem of some tree where monkeys swing over in laughter,
and children pluck fruits from its mouth
as elders sit under this ocean of gold or land mine
to curl away from life’s tiring gaze.

The art that may inspire the greatest art
may be hanging on the tips of your fingers, crackled palms and lips.
So, write with your gaze set beyond the sky you sit under;
for art is an evergreen memory in the lungs of time.

  1. Конференция Бундеслиги для ARD – это классическое объяснение футбольных событий для радио. В новом сезоне он впервые довольно происходить в эфир в течение 90 минут, об этом сообщает ресурс Netgate. Это обрубок молодежного продвижения телерадиовещательной сети.

    Каждую субботу в среднем 7,4 миллиона персона слушают Бундеслигу на радиостанциях ARD, и в будущем сезоне в связи с новыми правами для аудиоматериалы это сходство значительно возрастет. “Мы совершенствуем сервис и готовы считать полные отчеты обо всех матчах 1-й и 2-й Бундеслиги”, – сказал Маркус Теппер в интервью Deutsche Presse-Agentur. Спортивный координатор радио ARD также обнародовал 90-минутную конференцию сообразно субботам во следующий половине дня.

    Все сей масштабный футбольный пакет довольно звучать не для классическом FM-радио, а в эфире различных онлайн-сервисов, таких как фирменные приложения и веб-сайты станций. “Виды заключается в часть, чтобы нас было свободно найти и свободно использовать”, – объявил Теппер.
    Почему так поступает общественный вещатель? “АРД стремится к расширению своего цифрового портфеля, – пояснил Теппер. “Это инвестиции в будущее”. И: “Мы хотим привлечь новых участников и слушателей с через нового совет”.

    Больше онлайн – ради молодой аудитории

    Эта политика также включает в себя права на видеоклипы по утрам в день, которые также были приобретены недавно и которые глава ARD Том Бухроу назвал “огромной возможностью”, когда приобретал лицензии прошлым летом. ARD хочет “делать больше онлайн для более юный аудитории”, – сказал Бухров. Прежде конца текущего сезона ARD владеет всего правами на аудиовещание своих радиостанций ради классического приема в FM-диапазоне. Впрочем в июне прошлого возраст вещательная сеть также приобрела для аукционе права для аудиовещание в Интернете. “Мы недолго радовались, а затем приступили к работе”, – сообщил Теппер.

    Сей часть прав изменился как никакой второй ради последние годы. После старта в 2008 году на 90elf, аудиорепортажи прежде были доступны на сайте fun1.fm, а днесь предварительно конца текущего сезона – на Amazon “Prime Music”. Футбольные репортажи сегодня позволительно вслушиваться бесплатно для сайте розничного гиганта, только они прерываются рекламой.

    I mean "Art in the Lungs of Time" by Akanbi Odunayo Rhoda |Praxis Magazine for Arts & Literature is a little plain. You might look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they write news titles to get viewers interested.
