Quickening

In pregnancy terms, quickening is the moment in pregnancy when the pregnant woman starts to feel or perceive fetal movements in the uterus. The first natural sensation of quickening may feel like a light tapping, or the fluttering of a butterfly; these sensations become stronger and more regular as the pregnancy progresses. Sometimes, the first movements are mis-attributed to hunger pangs. A woman's uterine muscles, rather than her abdominal muscles, are first to sense fetal motion. Therefore, a woman's body weight does not have a substantial effect on when movements are perceived. Women who have given birth have more relaxed uterine muscles that are more sensitive to fetal motion, for them fetal motion can sometimes be felt as early as 14 weeks. Quickening occurs at about the middle of a pregnancy. A woman pregnant for the first time feels fetal movements at about 18–20 weeks, whereas a woman who has given birth at least once will feel movements around 15–17 weeks; the word "quick" meant "alive".

Quickening has sometimes been considered to be the beginning of the possession of "individual life" by the fetus. British legal scholar William Blackstone explained the subject of quickening in the eighteenth century, relative to feticide and abortion: Life... begins in contemplation of law as soon as an infant is able to stir in the mother's womb. For if a woman is quick with child, by a potion, or otherwise, killeth it in her womb, but at present it is not looked upon in quite so atrocious a light, though it remains a heinous misdemeanor. Quickening was only one of several standards that were used to determine when the right to life attaches to a fetus. According to the "ancient law" mentioned by Blackstone, another standard was formation of the fetus, which occurs weeks before quickening. Henry de Bracton explained the ancient law, about five hundred years before Blackstone: If one strikes a pregnant woman or gives her poison in order to procure an abortion, if the fetus is formed or quickened if it is quickened, he commits homicide.

In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, a woman convicted of a capital crime could claim a delay in her execution if she were pregnant. In Ireland on 16 March 1831 Baron Pennefather in Limerick stated that pregnancy was not alone sufficient for a delay but there had to be quickening.

Moñái

Moñái is the third son of Tau and Kerana and one of the seven legendary monsters of Guaraní mythology. This creature has an enormous serpent-like body with two straight, colorful horns over his head, which serve as antennae, his dominions are the open fields. He can climb trees with ease and slide down to hunt the birds on whom he feeds and dominates with the hypnotic power of his antennas; because of this he is called "the lord of the air". Moñái is fond of hiding the products of his misdeeds in a cave, his continuous robbing and raiding in the villages provoked great discord among the people as they all accuse each other for the robberies and mysterious "disappearances" of their belongings. The townspeople joined to put an end to those of his brothers; the beautiful Porâsý offered herself to carry out this mission. She convinced Moñái that she had fallen in love with him and that before they celebrated their wedding she wanted to meet his brothers. Moñái left her in the care of Teju Jagua and left to search for the rest of his brothers: Mbói Tu'i, Yasy Yateré, Kurupí, Luisón, Ao Ao.

When he brought them all they began the wedding rituals. The brothers exchanged the drinks and became drunk, it was in this moment that Porâsý attempted to escape from the cave, closed off by a huge stone. Moñái threw her back into the cave. Porâsý screamed to alarm the people. Knowing that she was lost she ordered the people to burn the cave with her inside. While this killed Porasy herself, it successfully destroyed Tau and Kerana's cursed descendants, including Moñai himself. In return for the sacrifice of Porâsý, the gods lifted her soul and changed it into a small but intense point of light. Since the gods destined the spirit of Porasy to light up the aurora. Narciso R. Coleman: Ñande Ypy Kuéra, 1929

Albert Järvinen

Pekka "Albert" Johannes Järvinen was a Finnish guitarist. He is best known as the guitarist of the Finnish rock band Hurriganes, he got his stage-name Albert from one of blues guitarist Albert King. Pekka "Albert" Järvinen was born in the municipality of Iitti in south-east Finland, where he at the age of eight started playing the acoustic guitar, he studied classical guitar under the leadership of Ivan Putilin. Järvinen received his first electric guitar, a Gretsch, in 1965. From there he went on to play in numerous bands, including the blues band Harp and the rock band Poison; when Järvinen, in May 1972, replaced Ile Kallio as the lead guitarist of Hurriganes, he was a seasoned musician. He had been a key member of the band Kalevala. In 1975 Järvinen left the Hurriganes to play with the Finnish musician Rock-Jerry, doing a comeback. Rumor had it that Remu Aaltonen had showed Järvinen the door as a result of a drinking problem, interfering with his stage performance; the same year Järvinen would challenge Hurriganes' leadership position by establishing a blues rock band called the Royals.

Playing e.g. Cream covers as well as their own material, Royals had a more intellectual image. Järvinen would however have to admit. Royals would never form a serious challenge to Hurriganes; as this band split in 1979, Järvinen planned to continue his career in England. Elvis Costello among numerous others wanted him as a lead guitarist; this British connection was fueled by Nick Lowe, who had visited Finland to record Järvinens guitar solos. Järvinen however returned to Finland to play with Dave Lindholm before rejoining Hurriganes in 1979; this engagement would last two years. In 1981 Järvinen was sacked due to heavy drinking. Together with Sleepy Sleepers former drummer Harri Lemola Järvinen formed a new band The Quips which stayed together only for a year. In 1984 Järvinen published a maxi-single Countdown under the name of Albert Järvinen Band; the single was produced and sung by Lemmy Kilmister from the British band Motörhead. In the middle of the 1980s Järvinen kept a low profile perfecting his skills.

At the latter half of the decade, he played with various artist and recorded a solo album Braindamage – Or Still Alive together with Albert King and William Clarke. Järvinen died during a concert trip in London, UK, in the Spring of 1991, aged 40; the official cause of death was myocardial infarction. Järvinen is buried in Honkanummi cemetery in Vantaa.
