7. Maurice Herzog just died

AFP.com


He paid for the glory [of climbing the Annapurna] in the form of several fingers and toes that had to be amputated because of frostbite.
"You can see what I have less of, but I feel what I have more of and it is incomparably greater," he later observed.

12. Expensive...but not quite so.


Vente de "The Lock" de John Constable. Article intéressant en soi, mais l'est plus encore le classement des 10 oeuvres les plus chères de l'histoire qui suit directement l'article.

21. Serment d'Hippocrate



Je jure par Apollon, médecin, par Esculape, par Hygée et Panacée, par tous les dieux et toutes les déesses, les prenant à témoin que je remplirai, suivant mes forces et mes capacités, le serment et l'engagement suivants : je mettrai mon maître de médecine au même rang que les auteurs de mes jours, je partagerai avec lui mon avoir et, le cas échéant, je pourvoirai à ses besoins ; je tiendrai ses enfants pour des frères, et s'ils désirent apprendre la médecine, je la leur enseignerai sans salaire ni engagement. Je ferai part des préceptes, des leçons orales et du reste de l'enseignement à mes fils, à ceux de mon maître et aux disciples liés par engagement et un serment suivant la loi médicale, mais à nul autre.
Je dirigerai le régime des malades à leur avantage, suivant mes forces et mon jugement, et je m'abstiendrai de tout mal et de toute injustice. Je ne remettrai à personne du poison, si on m'en demande, ni ne prendrai l'initiative d'une pareille suggestion; semblablement, je ne remettrai à aucune femme un pessaire abortif. Je passerai ma vie et j'exercerai mon art dans l'innocence et la pureté. Je ne pratiquerai pas l'opération de la taille, je la laisserai aux gens qui s'en occupent . Dans quelques maisons que je rentre, j'y entrerai pour l'utilité des malades, me préservant de tout méfait volontaire et corrupteur, et surtout de la séduction des femmes et des garçons, libres ou esclaves. Quoique je voie ou entende dans la société pendant l'exercice ou même hors de l'exercice de ma profession, je tairai ce qui n'a jamais besoin d'être divulgué, regardant la discrétion comme un devoir en pareil cas.
Si je remplis ce serment sans l'enfreindre, qu'il me soit donné de jouir heureusement de la vie et de ma profession, hororé à jamais des hommes. Si je le viole et que je me parjure, puis-je avoir un sort contraire."

22. The Grey


"Once more into the fray
Into the last good fight I'll ever know
Live and die on this day
Live and die on this day."

Joe Carnahan, director/writer.


The lines appear in the movie "The Grey", which I highly recommend. Reminiscent of Shakespeare's Henry V ("Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more; / Or close the wall up with our English dead." III, 1, 1-2) and of Tennyson's The Last Charge of the Light Brigade.

Interesting spin-off: Rudyard Kipling's much overlooked The Last of the Light Brigade (I'm root-quoting, dudes, so Kipling's poem has little to do with the subject I started with).

23. Joke in the midst of the fray


"Don't worry, for $99m, I've got all the time in the world."


Auctioneer and Sotheby's head of modern art Tobias Meyer, at the auction of Edvard Munch's painting "The Scream", which was bought for a swooping $119,922,500 (£74m) and which lasted 12 minutes. Most expensive work of art ever sold, dethroning Pablo Picasso's "Nude, Green Leaves and Bust" (which went for $106.5 m or £65.6 m) two years ago at Christie's.


Link to Sotheby's.

24. Beauty must lie somewhere

 
Here are two links on the same topic: Mr Toledano's new exhibition on beauty in LA, and the Huffington Post's cover of the event. Starting tomorrow.


I regret the absence of comment from the people who were photographed in any of the articles I have read. If anyone visits the exhibition over the next month, could he or she kindly tell me if comments/reaction are available with the pictures. I'd be curious to have these men and women's take on the representation and staging of themselves. And what 'self' means.

25. Our galaxy on a collision course with another: NASA



WASHINGTON (AFP)


Our galaxy is on a collision course with its nearest neighbor, Andromeda, and the head-on crash is expected in four billion years, the US space agency NASA said on Thursday.
Astronomers have long theorized that a clash of these galaxy titans was on the way, though it was unknown how severe it might be, or when, with guesses ranging from three to six billion years.


But years of "extraordinarily precise observations" from NASA's Hubble Space telescope tracking the motion of the Andromeda galaxy "remove any doubt that it is destined to collide and merge with the Milky Way," NASA said in a statement.  
"It will take four billion years before the strike." 0 Comments on Our galaxy on a collision course with another: NASA as of 1/1/1900
