COMPLEJO FUNERARIO DE DJOSER.

Recinto funerario es considerado como una verdadera joya de la arquitectura de todos los tiempos, es el primer conjunto edificado en piedra labrada de toda la historia de la humanidad. 
No se sabe a ciencia cierta si Djoser tomó parte activa o no en la decisión de modificar la tumba real, pero lo que sí es seguro es que Imhotep fue el arquitecto y maestro de obras que la llevó a cabo

Bayezid, Timur'a meydan okuyan mektubunda 'gelmezsen, eşlerin senden üç kez boş olsun, ben de senden kaçarsam, eşlerim üç kez boş olsun' diye yazıyordu. Timur bu nâmeyi alınca, 'İbn Osman aptal bir delidir' demiş. Kadından böyle söz etmek, Timur nezdinde büyük suçtu.

In the past 10 years, a growing interest in #LosAngeles has attracted creative #people from all over to the #city.

In this issue, we address what’s changed in this deracinated and polyethnic #California #metropolis.
We look into the heart of the city’s peculiar #mythology, its legends, #values, images, and #dreams, old and new. Is LA historian Mike Davis’s claim that the city is “playing the double role of #utopia and #dystopia for advanced #capitalism” still valid? From the original ’80s #BladeRunner to the recent remake, what’s changed in #LA’s vision of the #future? Is Los Angeles really projecting a better future, or just another illusion? As they say, it’s the final frontier. We revisit LA’s mythology, and rather than filter it through #culturaltheory, we look at it through real experiences, intimate stories, and the personal perspectives of LA figures — #artists, #writers, #historians, #surfers, #chefs, #scientists, and #personalities.

From the first page to the last, the articles are organized as an atmospheric and #geographical journey through the city, starting with the #coast, the light, the #ocean, then heading out to the #Eastside, returning to the #Westside, then driving out to the #desert.

It takes a kind of #innocence to love LA, but it’s surely the right place to face these confusing times.

Ludwig Van #Beethoven is arguably the most famous and well known classical musician and #composer in all of history, but his true identity and ethnicity has been a falsehood and obscurity for many, many years. Society has depicted him as a white male with either blonde or brunette colored hair, being shown in drawings, paintings, and illustrations all over the world.

But in reality, Beethoven was labeled by many as a “Mulatto”, or “Black Spaniard”. But why? Well, according to Gabriel Scott, historian and author of The Chosen Ones: Perception of Malcolm and Martin, his father was a white German and his mother was a “Moor”. At the time, the term “#Moors” was used to refer to a group of Muslim Northern #Africans. or generally speaking, people who were of African descent or even Negros. In society, with the Black gene being the most dominant, he was referred to as a Black man often by his friends and people that he associated with. In fact, several people are documented as saying that he had brown skin, black frizzy-wooly hair, a thick-wide nose and a short neck.

Some claim that Beethoven was often forced and pressured to wear white powder on his face to hide his ethnic origin when out in public. He allegedly also used body doubles for portraits, and “euro-centric” #historians, hiding the truth of his genetic heritage.
Nevertheless, Beethoven's story is very interesting. At the young age of 21, he moved from #Germany to Italy and began studying composition and quickly gained a reputation as a virtuoso pianist. However, during his late 20's, his hearing began to deteriorate, and he eventually became almost completely deaf.

But his disability did not end his music career. In fact, during the last 15 years of his life, he composed and published many of his most admired works in #classical music. All in all, his compositions include nine symphonies, about a dozen pieces of "occasional" music, seven concerti, as well as four shorter works that include soloists accompanied by the #orchestra. His only opera was Fidelio.

But most interesting is that this musical genius who people have thought for centuries was a white man, was actually in fact... Black. #theankhlife
