"I do not consider myself less ignorant than most people. I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teachings my blood whispers to me." Demian (1919) by Herman Hesse
'To hold our tongues when everyone is gossiping, to smile without hostility at people and institutions, to compensate for the shortage of love in the world with more love in small, private matters; to be more faithful in our work, to show greater patience, to forgo the cheap revenge obtainable from mockery and criticism: all these are things we can do' ~ Hermänn Hesse (1877 - 1962)
Hermann Hesse-"I have been and still am a seeker, but I have ceased to question stars and books; I have begun to listen to the teaching my blood whispers to me…"

I LOVE Star wars, I must have seen each of the 3 original (and only true) SW films about 30 times each. I have always been fascinated at how the special effects were achieved in the 70′s when, there are films being made today with less realistic scenes! Bellow are a number of photos from behind the scenes of the greatest trilogy ever made…..
Here is a collection of behind the scenes photos of famous Star Wars characters, creators and more that were taken during the filming of Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back (1980). Imgur member joinyouinthesun assembled the series of photos from a variety of sources.

Pelé executes a shot that, after all these years, is still closely associated with his playing style: the bicycle kick. "This is one of the most fantastic moves in sport: the bicycle kick. Maracana Stadium had more than 120,000 fans at this match against Belgium."
Pele once said, "I was born for soccer, just as Beethoven was born for music." One of the greatest athletes ever, he is best known for his goal-scoring bicycle kick.

It’s the kind of goal that every player dreams of scoring. The bicycle kick is one of those beautiful and rare moments in a soccer game that can take the breath away...
On pg. 57 of Soccer in Sun and Shadow, Galeano talked about the bicycle kick. Ramon Unzaga invented the move on the field at the Chilean port of Talcahuana which later became known as the chilena. In my point of view, this is the most exciting way to score a goal, but it also is the most difficult.

On March 7, 1965, more than 50 civil rights marchers were attacked at the Edmund Pettus Bridge. The march was organized to promote African American voter registration and to protest the killing of a young man, Jimmie Lee Jackson, by a State trooper during a Feb. 18 voter registration march in a nearby city. #civilrights #MrBowerbird flavorwire.com

Martin Luther King, Jr., called Birmingham, Alabama, the most segregated city in America. In 1963, he and other civil rights leaders believed it was time to change that. With marches and protests throughout the city, civil rights activists hoped the movement would draw national attention. Hundreds of young African Americans joined the cause, marching for equal rights. Through dramatic primary source photographs, author David Aretha explores this crucial struggle of the Civil Rights Movement.

Robert Noyce (center) and the rest of the "Traitorous Eight," the group of men who left Shockley Semiconductor to found Fairchild Semiconductor in 1956. Their silicon-based semiconductors are the Silicon Valley's namesake.
The "Traitorous Eight" & the Birth of Silicon Valley: Fed up with their employer, William Shockley, the workers walked off the job on Sep. 8, 1957 in Mountain View, California. Shockley had decided not to continue research into silicon-based semiconductors. The 8 undertook the work on their own, inventing the microprocessor and founding Intel. Pictured: Julius Blank, Victor Grinich, Jean Hoerni, Gene Kleiner, Jay Last, Gordon Moore, Robert Noyce, and Sheldon Roberts.
"Traitorous eight" (Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) : eight men who left Shockley Semiconductor Laboratory in 1957. William Shockley had in 1956 recruited a group with the goal to develop and produce new semiconductor devices. While Shockley had received a Nobel Prize in Physics and was an experienced researcher and teacher, his managing of the group created harsh working conditions. Shockley described their leaving as a "betrayal". The eight who left formed Fairchild Semiconductor.
Good reminder of how old civilization is.
