Karel Hynek Mácha

Karel Hynek Mácha was a Czech romantic poet. Mácha grew up in the son of a foreman at a mill, he learned German in school. He went on to study law at Prague University, he was fond of travel, enjoying trips into the mountains, was an avid walker. He moved to Litoměřice, a quiet town some 60 km from Prague, to prepare for law school exams and to write poetry. Three days before he was to be married to Šomková, just a few weeks after he had begun working as a legal assistant, Mácha overexerted himself while helping to extinguish a fire and soon thereafter died of pneumonia; the day after his death had been scheduled as his wedding day in Prague. Mácha was buried in Litoměřice in a pauper's grave. Recognition came after his death: in 1939, his remains were exhumed, they were given a formal state burial at the Vyšehrad cemetery in Prague. A statue was erected in his honor in Prague. In 1937 a biographical film, Karel Hynek Mácha, was made by Zet Molas. Lake Mácha was named after him in 1961. Macha was honored on a 50 Haleru and a 1 Koruna stamp on 30 April 1936, Scott Catalog # 213-214.

The stamp depicts a statue of Macha, found in Prague and was issued by the postal agency of Czechoslovakia. He was again honored on a 43 koruna postage stamp issued by the postal agency of the Czech Republic on 10 March 2010; this 43 koruna postage stamp is presented on a miniature souvenir sheet. The Scott catalog number for this postage stamp honoring Macha is Scott #3446. Karel Mácha was appointed patron saint of the youth collective "De Barries" in 2019, his lyrical epic poem "Máj", published in 1836 shortly before his death, was judged by his contemporaries as confusing, too individualistic, not in harmony with the national ideas. Czech playwright Josef Kajetán Tyl wrote a parody of Mácha's style, "Rozervanec". "Máj" was rejected by publishers, was published by a vanity press at Mácha's own expense, not long before his early death. Josef Bohuslav Foerster set May for choir and orchestra as his Op.159. Mácha's genius was discovered and glorified much by the poets and novelists of the 1850s and "Máj" is now regarded as the classic work of Czech Romanticism and is considered one of the best Czech poems written.

It contains forebodings of many of the tendencies of 20th-century literature: existentialism, isolation, so on. Mácha authored a collection of autobiographical sketches titled Pictures From My Life, the 1835–36 novel Cikáni, several individual poems, as well as a journal in which, among other things, he detailed his sexual encounters with Šomková; the Diary of Travel to Italy describes his journey to Venice and Ljubljana in 1834. The Secret Diary describes his daily life in autumn 1835 with cipher passages concerning his relationship with Eleonora Šomková.

Virgilio Rodríguez Macal

Virgilio Rodríguez Macal was a Guatemalan writer and diplomat who won various international and national prizes. As a novelist he is noted for integrating his deep knowledge of Mesoamerican and Guatemalan history and geography into his stories setting his novels in colorful Guatemalan jungle settings including its biologically rich flora and fauna. Macal was born on June 1916 in Guatemala City, he is considered one of the most popular novelists in Central American literature. Many of his works are based in the departments of Alta Verapaz and Baja Verapaz and are noted for displaying his factual knowledge of the fauna and traditions and the richness of his characters and locations, his most acclaimed work is his novel La mansión del pájaro serpiente, translated into several languages. His personality, like that of men born in the early decades of the twentieth century, was influenced by the long dictatorship of Jorge Ubico, the revolution of 1944 and by the so-called liberation movements which occurred in 1954.

Macal served some time as a diplomat, was a consul in Barcelona, Spain. Rodriguez Macal, settled in Santiago, Chile for many years, was a frequent collaborator of the great newspaper El Mercurio. Residing in Guatemala, he was the director of Diario de Centroamérica; this book contains some similarities with the author's life as the main character Valentine Ochaeta returns after several years studying abroad, his hometown, with a suitcase full of hopes and dreams that are contrary to the reality of their families who are in misery. This forces the subject of the novel to become more adventurous in the jungles of Peten as he seeks fortune out of the plight of his family. Through this journey he explores the roots of Guatemala history and their ancestors as he matures and becomes a man; the novel addresses the issues facing the hopes and dreams experienced by the young juveniles juxtaposed against the stark reality that confronts them as an adult. The novel won the Central sciences and Fine Arts Award on September 15, 1953.

This book contains the stories collected from the lips of the Q'eqchi' Indian Lish Zenzeyul. The fauna and flora from the jungles of Peten and Verapaz are portrayed in this picturesque novel entering a "world of green mystery" as it means, with snakes and monkeys contrasted against the white man's world, the men of cities. In his words, the forest is more logical than civilisation. Meaning "the mansion of the snake bird" the author makes beneficial use of the oral histories of Mayan mythology and the experiences of the novel's subject, the tireless adventurer. Beautiful stories where animals humanize themselves from the jungles of the Central American tropics are told in a colorful story surrounded by the lush greenery of the tropical forest; the novel is a narrative work set in 1940s Guatemala. The novel takes the reader to different latitudes of the country, from the port city of Livingston, Izabal, to the jungle region of Peten; this novel tells of the misfortunes of his steward Pedro. This book, apart from having much action and romance, is told in an emotional style with an element of "disguised" political criticism towards the military government during this period in the country of Guatemala.

Trusted Network Connect

Trusted Network Connect is an open architecture for Network Access Control, promulgated by the Trusted Network Connect Work Group of the Trusted Computing Group. The TNC architecture was first introduced at the RSA Conference in 2005. TNC was a network access control standard with a goal of multi-vendor endpoint policy enforcement. In 2009 TCG announced expanded specifications which extended the specifications to systems outside of the enterprise network. Additional uses for TNC which have been reported include Industrial Control System, SCADA security, physical security. Specifications introduced by the TNC Work Group: TNC Architecture for Interoperability IF-IMC - Integrity Measurement Collector Interface IF-IMV - Integrity Measurement Verifier Interface IF-TNCCS - Trusted Network Connect Client-Server Interface IF-M - Vendor-Specific IMC/IMV Messages Interface IF-T - Network Authorization Transport Interface IF-PEP - Policy Enforcement Point Interface IF-MAP - Metadata Access Point Interface CESP - Clientless Endpoint Support Profile Federated TNC A partial list of vendors who have adopted TNC Standards: Also, networking by Cisco HP Symantec Trapeze Networks Tofino The U.
