NaturVision

NaturVision is Germany’s oldest nature, wildlife and environmental film festival. Launched in 2002 in Neuschönau in the Bavarian Forest, the festival moved to its new home of Ludwigsburg in the German state of Baden-Württemberg in 2012. The venue is the Central Theater Ludwigsburg. Since 2014 the festival has also offered a free open-air cinema, a market with regional and sustainable vendors and a science slam.

At the heart of the festival is the international film competition. As well as nature and wildlife films, the NaturVision festival focuses heavily on environmental and sustainability issues. As well as the „German Conservation and Sustainability Film Award“, the „German Wildlife Film Award“ and the „German Biodiversity Film Award“ are presented at the NaturVision award ceremony, where additional prize categories include camera work, dramatisation, film music, children’s film and the audience award.

Each year the festival is devoted to a special theme, which is presented in films, talks and special events. In recent years, themes have included „Soil & Water“ and renewable energy. In 2015 it was planned to seek and present in particular solutions for global problems in a multi-year cycle under the slogan „Islands of the Future“.

Another area in which the NaturVision Film Festival is active is educating young people about the environment. So for instance, in the run-up to the festival, many schools in Baden-Württemberg run programmes to which experts or filmmakers are invited. At the „Film & Discussion“ youth media workshops, experts show films about sustainability issues to the school classes, while teachers’ workshops explain the basics of media work with children and young people. As well as the school programme and childcare facilities, the festival also puts on a children’s film programme for all age groups. In the film competition a separate youth jury chooses its favourites and announces them at the grand gala award ceremony. To ensure that it can also campaign on the cultural policy level for environmental education to be provided through the festival, NaturVision also became one of the founding members of the Association of Bavarian Film Festivals in 2014.

Apart from the festival serving as a platform for NGOs focused on environmental topics, it also especially acts as meet up point for people in the film industry, offering workshops and opportunities for filmmakers, media representatives and other cultural creators to get together. Producers and filmmakers have the chance to engage with each other and the public. One of NaturVision’s objectives is to support and promote the genre of nature and environmental film. One strategy for this is Best-Of events assembled from last year’s program, which take place primarily in Switzerland.

Together with Euronatur, natur magazine and Gelsenwasser, NaturVision sponsors the photography competition „Europe’s Natural Treasures“, the results of which are compiled each year in the „Fascination of Nature“ exhibition, which can be seen in various locations.

NaturVision was founded in 2002 by Ralph Thoms and was held annually in the Bavarian Forest National Park in Neuschönau, Germany. Because of the venue’s proximity to the Czech border, the festival has enjoyed a collaboration with the Czech town of Vimperk since its early days.

Already in 2008 – as part of the German-Chinese Year of Science and Education – a collaboration with China was established, and German and Chinese filmmakers interacted for the first time in the workshops of the NaturVision Film Festival.

In 2012 the festival changed locations for financial reasons and was relaunched in Ludwigsburg in the German state of Baden-Württemberg. In the metropolitan area around Stuttgart, it has grown steadily since then and recorded over 13,000 visitors in 2016. The festival venue is the Central Theater Ludwigsburg, but the extensive supporting programme is spread over the whole city – from the open-air cinema in Arsenalplatz to the NaturVision Science Slam, which took place in the Film Gallery of the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg in 2015.

The Bavarian Forest, meanwhile, is home to the NaturVision Film Days, which have been held in the Hans-Eisenmann-Haus in Neuschönau since 2012. Here, as well as the highlights of the Ludwigsburg festival, visitors can enjoy films that are of special interest for the region in the HeimatSachen series. What makes the Film Days so special is the location’s proximity to nature, with films about nature being presented in nature – or rather, in an open-air cinema set up in the forest. NaturVision’s youth environmental education efforts continue in the Bavarian Forest, with the ideas competition „Educational film: Naturally!“ organised jointly with Bayernwerk AG, and a school programme before and during the contest inviting pupils to find out more about the environment and sustainability.

Patron of the NaturVision Film Festival for the last two years has been Baden-Württemberg’s premier Winfried Kretschmann (of political party Alliance ’90/The Greens). For him the main focus of NaturVision is educating people about the environment:

“The nature film festival NaturVision in Ludwigsburg marks an important intersection between media and environmental education. This is where passion for film and nature meet.” – Winfried Kretschmann

Another champion of the festival is German actor Andreas Hoppe, best known for his role as a police inspector in the popular TV crime series Tatort. He campaigns for animal welfare and the use of regional foods. Another celebrity guest and supporter of the festival is actor Hannes Jaenicke, whose production „Hannes Jaenicke in Action for ….“ was awarded the first „NaturVision Film Festival Special Prize“ in 2014.

Three Germany based media outlets have been the official presenters of the festival since 2015: the German subsidiary of Discovery Channel, the German-French culture channel arte and Ludwigsburg’s local newspaper Ludwigsburger Kreiszeitung.

Margarete Lanner

Margarete Lanner, auch Marga Lanner, verheiratete Margarete Gräfin Aichelburg (* 17. Februar 1896 in Hamburg als Margarethe Helene Langlotz; † 1981 in Wien) war eine deutsche Stummfilm- und Theater-Schauspielerin.

Margarete Lanner begann ihre Bühnenlaufbahn 1917 in Hanau. Nach einer weiteren Verpflichtung – in Frankfurt am Main spielte sie am Neuen Theater und den Kammerspielen – kehrte sie 1919 in ihre Geburtsstadt Hamburg zurück, wo sie von der dort ansässigen Produktionsfirma Vera-Filmwerke GmbH ihren ersten Filmvertrag erhielt und noch im selben Jahr in Brutal vor der Kamera debütierte.

In der Folgezeit wurde Margarete Lanner häufig besetzt; allein 1920/21 sah man sie in nahezu einem Dutzend Filmen an der Seite von nach Hamburg gereisten Stars wie Emil Jannings und Conrad Veidt. Es waren durchgehend Produktionen von künstlerisch minderer Bedeutung, in denen Margarete Lanner meist die weibliche Hauptrolle erhielt. In Sklaven der Rache spielte sie sogar eine Doppelrolle.

Inzwischen in Berlin eingetroffen, setzte sie dort 1924 ihre Filmkarriere mit Hauptrollen in weiterhin unspektakulären Produktionen fort. Ihre Mitwirkung in Fritz Langs legendärer Inszenierung Metropolis beschränkt sich auf eine bis dahin seltene Nebenrolle. Kurz vor Ende des Stummfilmzeitalters, nach einer weiteren Reihe von Neben- und seltener werdenden Hauptrollen, beendete Margarete Lanner ihre Arbeit für das Kino weitgehend. Im Tonfilm war sie lediglich 1936 mit Nebenrollen in zwei Produktionen der Euphono-Film zu sehen gewesen.

Danach verschwand sie weitgehend aus dem Blickfeld der Öffentlichkeit und kehrte unter der Namenskurzform Marga Lanner als Schauspielerin und Sängerin zum Theater zurück. Festengagements erhielt sie jedoch kaum mehr, belegt ist eine Verpflichtung an die Städtische Bühne von Innsbruck in der Spielzeit 1938/39.

Saint Mary Immaculate, Brugherio

Coordinates:

The church of Saint Mary Immaculate is a church that is annexed to Cascina Increa, next to the entrance of Villa Tizzoni Ottolini in Brugherio. The church has undergone renovations, however, like the farmhouse to which it is attached, has maintained its original architecture. Increa, the area where the church is located, formerly belonged to the municipality of Cernusco Asinario (now Cernusco sul Naviglio); it became part of the parish of Saint Bartholomew in 1578 and was subsequently annexed to the municipality of Brugherio in 1866.

The entrance to the church is located between two pilasters. Above the door there is a plaque whose inscription commemorates the dedication to Mary Immaculate, Saint Joseph, Saint Mary Magdalene, Saint Teresa of Ávila that took place in 1691. The church is quadrangular with a rectangular apse where a late baroque marble altar is placed; the altar has a curvilinear shape that follows the slight concavity of the junction between the bottom wall and the side walls. In a niche above the altar there is a twentieth-century statue of the Madonna and Child. A marble altarpiece with a molded cornice frames the niche, inserted within a decoration depicting eighteenth-century columns and garlands of flowers, which itself gives the impression of greater depth.

High on the wall there is a quadrangular window. A pluteo in shaped pink marble separates the presbytery from the nave. On the vault of the presbytery there are symbols of the four Evangelists; the latter decorations were probably confected, along with the decoration of the vault of the nave, prior to the altar’s decoration. The ceiling of the nave celebrates the Virgin Mary through four shields which represent four different names of Madonna chosen from litany entries. At the center of the vault a dove is placed in a panel, which is made of plaster, representing the Holy Spirit. On the walls of the presbytery, there are two paintings with a single carved wooden frame. The left one shows the Agony of Saint Joseph, while the right one the Adoration of the Magi in a garland of flowers; this form was spread in the figurative lombard painting typical of the seventeenth century. Along the nave several plaques are found in memory of the building’s former owners. To the right, next to a plaque in memory of Ester Zanzoterra Robbiani, stands the neoclassical plate commissioned by Elisabetta Napollon in memory of her husband Giulio Ottolini Visconti, who died on July 26, 1839. It is a white marble bas-relief, depicting the woman’s profile, sitting with her head bowed as if expressing sadness. The woman cries on a Roman amphora on whose center a portrait of Count Ottolini is sculpted.

Variations on a Theme by Tchaikovsky (Arensky)

Variations on a Theme by Tchaikovsky, Op. 35a, a piece for string orchestra by Anton Arensky, started out as the slow movement of his String Quartet No. 2 in A minor, Op. 35. It was written in 1894, the year after the death of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, in a tribute to that composer. It was based on the theme from the song „Legend: Christ in His Garden“, the fifth of Sixteen Children’s Songs, Op. 54.

Tchaikovsky’s song was originally set to a Russian translation by Aleksey Pleshcheyev of an English poem called „Roses and Thorns“ by the American poet Richard Henry Stoddard.

At the first performance of the quartet, the slow movement was so well received that Arensky soon arranged it as a separate piece for string orchestra, Op. 35a, in which form it has remained among the most popular of all Arensky’s works.

Arensky also made a version of the quartet for the unusual scoring of violin, viola and two cellos.

The Variations are set out in the following sequence:

Barry Wilson (footballer)

* Senior club appearances and goals counted for the domestic league only and correct as of 6 April 2013 (UTC).

Barry John Wilson (born 16 February 1972 in Kirkcaldy) is a Scottish football player and manager.

Wilson began his career in the Highland League at Ross County, where his father, Bobby Wilson, was manager. After a spell at Southampton,where he failed to break into the first team, he returned to Ross County before moving to Raith Rovers in 1994. He was a member of the Raith squad that played in the 1995–96 UEFA Cup. In July 1996 Wilson signed for Inverness Caledonian Thistle and helped them to the Scottish Third Division title in 1996–97. In the following few seasons Wilson established himself as a firm favourite of the Caley Thistle fans, with his extraordinarily quick runs down the right wing and his ability to both create and score goals.

During season 1999–00, Caley Thistle’s then-manager Steve Paterson decided to move Wilson up front as a striker, which proved an extremely successful tactic, with Wilson scoring a number of goals that season. In the summer of 2000, Wilson was sold to Livingston, with whom he won the Scottish First Division title and was promoted to the SPL.

After three years at Livingston, Wilson returned to Caley Thistle in August 2003, under the management of John Robertson. Since then he has once again proved a valuable asset to the team.

Wilson holds Scottish First Division winner’s medals, won with Caley Thistle, Livingston and Raith Rovers, a Scottish Third Division winner’s medal, won with Caley Thistle and a Challenge Cup winner’s medal, also won with Caley Thistle. His most historic achievement was in scoring the last senior Scottish goal of the old millennium (against Clydebank, 27 December 1999) and the first of the new millennium (against Livingston, 3 January 2000). He is also famous for scoring the opening goal when Caley Thistle beat Celtic 3–1 at Parkhead in the Scottish Cup on 8 February 2000.

Wilson joined St Johnstone on a one-month emergency loan in March 2008. He returned to Caley Thistle after his loan spell with St Johnstone to win himself a new contract and went on to produce some outstanding performances in the closing games. This resulted in Craig Brewster awarding Wilson with a new 6-month contract. In December 2008, it was announced that Caley Thistle would not be offering Wilson a new contract and thus he would be free to move on when his current contract expired.

Wilson joined Dumfries club Queen of the South on 30 December 2008, after being released a month early from his Inverness contract He made his debut on 3 January 2009 in a Scottish Football League First Division match away to Morton. On 8 December 2009 the Queens website announced Wilson would be leaving in the January transfer window to return to Inverness where his home is. Manager Gordon Chisholm said of Wilson, „He’s netted a lot of valuable goals for us and his experience has been a great asset“. He had a short spell at Peterhead before joining Elgin City prior to the 2010–11 season in a player-coach role.

Wilson was appointed manager of Highland League side Wick Academy on 23 October 2012, taking over from former Raith teammate Davie Kirkwood. His first game in charge came against Keith and saw his team run out 5–1 winners, sending them top of the Highland League. Wilson appeared as a substitute on 27 February 2013 during Wick’s 4–0 victory over title rivals Clachnacuddin to bring them back to the top of the Highland League. Wilson signed a new contract with Wick Academy in March 2013.

Queen of the South offered Wilson their vacant managers position in June 2013, but after discussions Wilson turned down their offer to stay at Wick. Wilson was appointed manager of Elgin City in January 2014. He resigned from that position in November 2014, after losing a Scottish Cup tie against junior club Bo’ness.

Shenyi

Shenyi (深衣) is the traditional Chinese attire for men which is recorded in Book of Rites and advocated in Zhu Xi’s Common Rites. It has been the formal wear and court dress since Shang Dynasty. It was a form of formal wear for the scholar-official in Song Dynasty and Ming Dynasty. It was also introduced to Korea and Japan and exerted great influences on Hanbok and Kimono. The Shenyi Center of Chinese Medicine is named after it.

Shenyi in later dynasties directly descended from the shenyi worn in earlier dynasties, like Han Dynasty. Shenyi originally is made of ramie cultivated in China. Ramie fabric needs to be bleached and produced 45 to 60 centimeters wide textile. The yi (衣, blouse) and chang (裳, skirt) of the shenyi is sewn together. The upper part is made up of 4 panels of ramie fabric, representing four seasons of a year. 2 panels are fold and sewn to cover the upper body. Another 2 panels of ramie fabric are sewn onto each side of the yi as two sleeves. The lower part is made up of 12 panels of fabric sewn together (十二片縫合), representing 12 months a year. Its sleeves are wide with black cuff. A wide sash (大帶) is tied in the front.

Structure of shenyi

Popularity of shenyi declined during Tang Dynasty, and by the Ming Dynasty, it was advocate worn only for the most formal occasions, such as ceremonies to pay respects to the ancestors (祭祖) or worn as funeral cloth (斂衣). However, the actual usage are worn as inner garment for Yan Bian(燕弁冠服 for Emperor), Bao He(保和冠服For Princes), Zhong Jing(忠靜冠服 for Imperial Officers) only. Shenyi was considered too ancient and meaningful to wear in Ming Dynasty. But it is popular with Confucian scholars. Even Korean and Japanese Confucian scholars were dressed up with Shenyi to show their dedication to the way of ancient saints.

Bravo Airlines

Flughafen Madrid-Barajas

Bravo Airlines war eine spanische Fluggesellschaft mit Sitz in Madrid.

Das Unternehmen wurde 2004 gegründet und nahm den Flugbetrieb im Mai 2006 auf. Das Hauptziel war, Verbindungen zwischen Europa und Afrika zu eröffnen und mit der Tochtergesellschaft Bravo Air Congo regionale Ziele in Afrika anzufliegen. Bravo Airlines beschäftigte 400 Mitarbeiter. Nachdem die Tochtergesellschaft Ende 2007 Konkurs meldete, konzentrierte sich Bravo Airlines auf das Wet-Leasing ihrer Boeing 767-200 an andere Fluggesellschaften. Diese Maschine wurde aber am 30. Oktober 2008 dem Eigentümer ILFC wieder zurückgegeben, sodass Bravo Airlines seitdem kein Flugzeug mehr besitzt und somit den Betrieb eingestellt hat.

Sie bediente von Brüssel und Madrid (über Paris), den afrikanischen Kontinent. Die Ziele in Afrika waren überwiegend im Südwesten (von Angola bis Benin), sowie die Flughäfen Johannesburg (JNB) im Süden und Nairobi (NBO) im Osten. Die meisten Flüge fanden jedoch in die Demokratische Republik Kongo statt. Anfang 2008 beendete man den eigenen Flugbetrieb und verleaste stattdessen die einzige Boeing 767-200 an andere Fluggesellschaften.

Bravo Airlines besaß eine Boeing 767-200, die zuletzt an Air Ivoire verleast wurde.
