Marina Tsvetaeva

Marina Ivanovna Tsvetaeva was a Russian and Soviet poet. Her work is considered among some of the greatest in twentieth century Russian literature, she lived through and wrote of the Russian Revolution of 1917 and the Moscow famine that followed it. In an attempt to save her daughter Irina from starvation, she placed her in a state orphanage in 1919, where she died of hunger. Tsvetaeva left Russia in 1922 and lived with her family in increasing poverty in Paris and Prague before returning to Moscow in 1939, her husband Sergei Efron and her daughter Ariadna Èfron were arrested on espionage charges in 1941. Tsvetaeva committed suicide in 1941; as a lyrical poet, her passion and daring linguistic experimentation mark her as a striking chronicler of her times and the depths of the human condition. Marina Tsvetaeva was born in Moscow, the daughter of Ivan Vladimirovich Tsvetaev, a professor of Fine Art at the University of Moscow, who founded the Alexander III Museum of Fine Arts. Tsvetaeva's mother, Maria Alexandrovna Mein, Ivan's second wife, was a concert pianist literate, with German and Polish ancestry.

Growing up in considerable material comfort, Tsvetaeva would come to identify herself with the Polish aristocracy. Tsvetaeva's two half-siblings and Andrei, were the children of Ivan's deceased first wife, Varvara Dmitrievna Ilovaiskaya, daughter of the historian Dmitry Ilovaisky. Tsvetaeva's only full sister, was born in 1894; the children quarrelled and violently. There was considerable tension between Tsvetaeva's mother and Varvara's children, Tsvetaeva's father maintained close contact with Varvara's family. Tsvetaeva's father was kind, but wrapped up in his studies and distant from his family, he was still in love with his first wife. Maria Tsvetaeva had had a love affair before her marriage. Maria Tsvetaeva disapproved of Marina's poetic inclination. In 1902 Tsvetaeva's mother contracted tuberculosis. A change in climate was believed to help cure the disease, so the family travelled abroad until shortly before her death in 1906, when Tsvetaeva was 14, they lived for a while near Genoa. There, away from the rigid constraints of a bourgeois Muscovite life, Tsvetaeva was able for the first time to run free, climb cliffs, vent her imagination in childhood games.

There were many Russian émigré revolutionaries residing at that time in Nervi, who may have had some influence on the young Tsvetaeva. In June 1904 Tsvetaeva was sent to school in Lausanne. Changes in the Tsvetaev residence led to several changes in school, during the course of her travels she acquired the Italian and German languages, she gave up the strict musical studies that her mother had turned to poetry. She wrote "With a mother like her, I had only one choice: to become a poet". In 1908, aged 16, Tsvetaeva studied literary history at the Sorbonne. During this time, a major revolutionary change was occurring within Russian poetry: the flowering of the Russian symbolist movement, this movement was to colour most of her work, it was not the theory, to attract her, but the poetry and the gravity which writers such as Andrei Bely and Alexander Blok were capable of generating. Her own first collection of poems, Vecherny Albom, self-published in 1910, promoted her considerable reputation as a poet.

It was well received, although her early poetry was held to be insipid compared to her work. It attracted the attention of the poet and critic Maximilian Voloshin, whom Tsvetaeva described after his death in A Living Word About a Living Man. Voloshin soon became her friend and mentor, she began spending time at Voloshin's home in the Black Sea resort of Koktebel, a well-known haven for writers and artists. She became enamoured of the work of Alexander Blok and Anna Akhmatova, although she never met Blok and did not meet Akhmatova until the 1940s. Describing the Koktebel community, the émigré Viktoria Schweitzer wrote: "Here inspiration was born." At Koktebel, Tsvetaeva met a 17-year-old cadet in the Officers' Academy. She was 19, he 18: they fell in love and were married in 1912, the same year as her father's project, the Alexander III Museum of Fine Arts, was ceremonially opened, an event attended by Tsar Nicholas II. Tsvetaeva's love for Efron was intense. At around the same time, she became involved in an affair with the poet Sophia Parnok, 7 years older than Tsvetaeva, an affair that caused her husband great grief.

The two women fell in love, the relationship profoundly affected both women's writings. She deals with the ambiguous and tempestuous nature of this relationship in a cycle of poems which at times she called The Girlfriend, at other times The Mistake. Tsvetaeva and her husband spent summers in the Crimea until the revolution, had two daughters: Ariadna, or Alya and Irina. In 1914, Efron volunteered for the front and by 1917 he was an officer stationed in Moscow with the 56th Reserve. Tsvetaeva was a close witness of the Russian Revolution. On trains, she came into contact with ordinary Russian people a

Mitochondrial ribosomal protein L42

28S ribosomal protein L42, mitochondrial is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MRPL42 gene. Mammalian mitochondrial ribosomal proteins are encoded by nuclear genes and help in protein synthesis within the mitochondrion. Mitochondrial ribosomes consist of a large 39S subunit, they have an estimated 75% protein to rRNA composition compared to prokaryotic ribosomes, where this ratio is reversed. Another difference between mammalian mitoribosomes and prokaryotic ribosomes is that the latter contain a 5S rRNA. Among different species, the proteins comprising the mitoribosome differ in sequence, sometimes in biochemical properties, which prevents easy recognition by sequence homology; this gene encodes a protein identified as belonging to both the 39S subunits. Further experiments will be needed to identify the specific subunit localization. Sequence analysis identified three transcript variants. Pseudogenes corresponding to this gene are found on chromosomes 4q, 6p, 6q, 7p, 15q

Portuguese cuisine

Despite being restricted to an Atlantic sustenance, Portuguese cuisine has many Mediterranean influences. Portuguese cuisine is famous for seafood, the Portuguese are among the nations that consume more fish in the world, per capita; the influence of Portugal's former colonial possessions is notable in the wide variety of spices used. These spices include piri piri, white pepper and black pepper, as well as cinnamon, paprika, allspice and saffron. Cinnamon and allspice is not only saved for desserts, unlike other European cuisines, it's added to plenty savoury Portuguese dishes. Paprika, piri piri, bay leaf, white pepper and cinnamon are the most common spices used in Portuguese cuisine. Olive oil is one of the bases of Portuguese cuisine, used both for cooking and flavouring meals, raw; this has led to a unique classification of olive oils in Portugal, depending on their acidity: 1,5 degrees is only for cooking with, anything lower than 1 degree is good for dousing over boiled fish and vegetables.

0.7, 0.5 or 0.3 degrees are for those who do not enjoy the taste of olive oil at all, or who wish to use it in, say, a mayonnaise or sauce where the taste is meant to be disguised. Garlic is used, as are herbs, such as bay leaf, oregano, thyme and parsley, being the most prevalent. In fact, Portugal is the only European country to use coriander as a fresh herb, in food and salads, it makes an indispensable ingredient in Açorda, a type of bread porridge, vastly appreciated in the Alentejo region. Homemade sweet and hot red pepper paste is commonly used in the dishes of the Azores, along with spices obtained through the spice trade, like allspice and clove, it is preferred to make food spicy on the island of São Miguel in the Azores using malagueta peppers known as piri-piri. Frying onions, red pepper paste, piri piri and tomato in olive oil are essential in many sauces. A Portuguese breakfast consists of fresh bread, with butter, cheese or jam, accompanied by coffee, tea or hot chocolate. A small espresso coffee is a popular beverage had during breakfast, enjoyed at home or at the many cafés in towns and cities throughout Portugal.

Sweet pastries are very popular, as well as breakfast cereal, mixed with milk or yogurt and fruit. Lunch lasting over an hour, is served between noon and 2 o'clock around 1 o'clock and dinner is served around 8 o'clock. There are three main courses, with lunch and dinner including a soup. A common Portuguese soup is caldo verde, which consists of a base of cooked pureed, potato and garlic, to which shredded collard greens are added. Chunks of chouriço are added as well, but may be omitted, thereby making the soup vegan. Among fish recipes, salted cod dishes are pervasive; the most typical desserts are arroz caramel custard. There is a wide variety of cheeses made from the milk of sheep, goats or cows; these cheeses can contain a mixture of different kinds of milk. The most famous are queijo da serra from the region of Serra da Estrela, Queijo São Jorge from the Portuguese island of São Jorge, Requeijão. A popular pastry is the pastel de nata, a small custard tart sprinkled with cinnamon. Portugal is a seafaring nation with a well-developed fishing industry and this is reflected in the amount of fish and seafood eaten.

The country has Europe's highest fish consumption per capita and is among the top four in the world for this indicator. Fish is served grilled, fried or deep-fried, roasted, or steamed. Foremost amongst these is bacalhau, the type of fish most consumed in Portugal, it is said. Cod is always used dried and salted, because the Portuguese fishing tradition in the North Atlantic developed before the invention of refrigeration—therefore it needs to be soaked in water or sometimes milk before cooking; the simpler fish dishes are flavoured with virgin olive oil and white wine vinegar. Portugal has been fishing and trading cod since the 15th century, this cod trade accounts for its widespread use in the cuisine. Other popular seafoods includes fresh sardines, squid, crabs and prawns, spiny lobster, many other crustaceans, such as barnacles, horse mackerel, sea bass, a great variety of other fish and shellfish, as well as molluscs, such as clams, oysters and scallops. Caldeirada is a stew consisting of a variety of fish and shellfish with potatoes, bell peppers, parsley and onions.

Sardines used to be preserved in brine for sale in rural areas. Sardine canneries developed all along the Portuguese coast. Ray fish is dried in the sun in Northern Portugal. Canned tuna is available in Continental Portugal. Tuna used to be plentiful in the waters of the Algarve, they were trapped in fixed nets when they passed the Portuguese southern coast to spawn in the Mediterranean, again when they returned to the Atlantic. Portuguese writer Raul Brandão, in his book Os Pescadores, describes how the tuna was hooked from the raised net into the boats, how the fishermen would amuse themselves riding the larger fish around the net. Fresh tuna, however, is eaten in Madeira and the Algarve where tuna

Lumière (EP)

Lumière is the debut release from Canadian metalcore band The Afterimage. The album was released on August 2015 in North America through Tragic Hero Records; the album was produced by Jordan Valeriote at Sundown Studios in Guelph, Ontario and is the band's first album release since their debut EP Formless in 2012. The band took on a different approach from their first EP including clean vocals that have a strong R&B and Pop influence fused in with the band's progressive metal sound. Vocalist Kyle Anderson had the following to say of the band’s new music, “We started as a project that showcased technicality and precision at the heavier end of the musical spectrum. Now we’re focused on creating the most captivating songs, with heavy passages used as one of a number of dynamics.”
