Mi Santo Patron Es:
San Nicolás De Tolentino
La razón por cuál yo escogí a San Nicolás De Tolentino, es porque desde que yo estaba chiquito ya miraba a mis padres le han tenido fe a San Nicolás, desde entonces yo le ha tenido fe también.
Historia de San Nicolás De Tolentino: Este santo recibió su sobrenombre del pueblo en que residió la mayor parte de su vida, y en el que también murió. Nicolás nació en San Angeló, pueblo que queda cerca de Fermo, en la Marca de Ancona, hacia el año 1245. Sus padres fueron pobres en el mundo, pero ricos en virtud. Se cree que Nicolás fue fruto de sus oraciones y de una devota peregrinación que hicieron al santuario de San Nicolás de Bari en el que su madre, que estaba avanzada en años, le había rogado a Dios que le regalara un hijo que se entregara con fidelidad al servicio divino. En su bautismo, Nicolás recibió el nombre de su patrón, y por sus excelentes disposiciones, desde su infancia se veía que había sido dotado con una participación extraordinaria de la divina gracia.

Cuando era niño pasaba muchas horas en oración, aplicando su mente a Dios de manera maravillosa. Así mismo, solía escuchar la divina palabra con gran entusiasmo, y con una modestia tal, que dejaba encantados a cuantos lo veían. Se distinguió por un tierno amor a los pobres, y llevaba a su casa a los que se encontraba, para compartir con ellos lo que tenía para su propia subsistencia. Era un niño de excepcional piedad.

Desde su infancia se decidió a renunciar a todo lo superfluo, así como practicar grandes mortificaciones, y, desde temprana edad, adoptó el hábito de ayunar tres días a la semana, miércoles, viernes y sábados. Cuando creció añadió también los lunes. Durante esos cuatro días solo comía una vez por día, a base de pan y agua.
¡Oh glorioso Taumaturgo y Protector de las almas del purgatorio, San Nicolás de Tolentino! Con todo el afecto de mi alma te ruego que interpongas tu poderosa intercesión en favor de esas almas benditas, consiguiendo de la divina clemencia la condonación de todos sus delitos y sus penas, para que saliendo de aquella tenebrosa cárcel de dolores, vayan a gozar en el cielo de la visión beatífica de Dios. Y a mí, tu devoto siervo, alcánzame, ¡oh gran santo!, la más viva compasión y la más ardiente caridad hacia aquellas almas queridas. Amén…...

...that Canadian had no involvement in the planning and that the British were doing it all. Here is what Henshaw said: “the operation was conceived, planned, and launched under the direction of the British officers as part of a wider strategy that Canadians had played practically no part in formulating.”[1] This is what Brian Loring Villa stated in his article that “The stubborn fact remains that at every important stage of the planning process McNaughton personally reviewed the work product and registered his approval under the authority delegated to him by the Canadian Government”.[2] It leads me to believe that the Canadians were very much involved in the planning of the raid as mentioned in Brian Villa’s book. Who was responsible for the Raid on Dieppe? Peter Henshaw stated that he strongly believed that the Canadian commanders were primarily responsible for the Dieppe fiasco.[3] He wrote in his book that “their struggle for autonomy, and for a leading Canadian role in raids, interacted with British interservice rivalries in a way that was decisive for the progress of the planned raid”.[4] Here is what Brian Villa wrote in his book. “Strangely, when Mountbatten presented the rough outline to the Chiefs of Staff for their approval, he limited himself to remarking that there were many problematic aspects to the raid that would have to be worked out, but he did not then try to extract any substantial commitment of forces”.[5] This was a......

Pancho Villa

...Yvette Escobar December 12, 2012 Period 2                                                             Pancho Villa               One of the most notorious rebels in Mexico was Pancho villa Doroteo Aranga.. Pancho Villa was important because he was part of the group of rebels who supported Francisco Madero in the Mexican Revolution when he rose up against the regime of Porfirio Diaz.  Madero came to power but was then overthrown and killed.  Victoriano Huerta then took power.  Villa was the leader of one of the armies that fought against Huerta's regime.  Villa and the other leaders were able to overthrow Huerta and to set up the semi-democratic system that is still in place in Mexico today, it has become much more democratic in the last 12 years.  Pancho Villa then was famous because he was one of the leaders of the Mexican Revolution.             Villa's Robin Hood story began after he established himself and his bandit followers in the sierras in 1900. Officially, the years 1900-09 are "unaccounted for," but it was during this period that he became a legendary hero to the poor for skillfully evading the Porfiriato's oppressive rurales. In 1910 Villa and his men came down from the hills to join Fransisco l Madero’s revolutionary forces, therefore making an historical transition from ‘bandidos’ to ‘revolucionarios’.

Getty Villa Museum Paper

...Getty Villa Museum Paper Sarcophagus with Scenes of Bacchus A sarcophagus was a method of cremation and burial that was widely popular in the later Republican Period. It was most commonly carved in a block of stone, or in this case a marble, where the body was usually placed. The ‘Sarcophagus with Scenes of Bacchus’, being one of the exquisite Roman funerary arts in the 1800s, showed remarkable detail in their marble work. Especially seeing how small the real object was in-person, it did surprise me on how much the sarcophagus was ornamented. This certain sarcophagus is evident that it was from the Roman period because of the style that it portrayed. It was usually made with marble and had full-length relief sculptural portraits of the deceased that were halfway wrapped around the block. The portraits on this sarcophagus are very precise and comprehensive, yet very smooth on the lines. It is clear that the sculptor did take a lot of time and energy on this piece, knowing that a wealthy and powerful person could only have purchased these funeral receptacles. As for the process of the carving, I would have to say, based on the decorativeness and compacted size, the tools were similar to what a traditional sculptor would use to carve marble, but a much smaller size. Some basic implements used for marble were tooth chisel, point chisel, the drill, and a rasp. There were also other techniques that might have been used to smooth out the overall sculpting, which was to sand it...

Footnote to the Youth

...of Villa’s stories and his book Footnote to Youth: Tales of the Philippines and Others (1933) in the United States. First, the conditions of the American literary marketplace are briefly described. Second, documents pertaining to the realization in print of Villa’s stories and his book are analyzed as sites of negotiations between colonial subject (Villa) and the colonial master (his American editors and publishers). Finally, an account of how Villa was made to circulate in the Philippines after the publication of his stories and his book in the United States is given. From these discussions the article hopes to show that Villa’s self-fashioning by publication was both subject to and critical of the colonial condition, alternately reinforcing it and challenging it.

Getty Villa Art Pieces

...Getty Villa Art Pieces The Getty Villa is home to many interesting and amazing art pieces. It was founded by J. Paul Getty in 1954 to display his beautiful collection of art. It was heavily influenced by Greek Architecture especially the Greek Villas. The Villa is known for having some of the more unique statues. Most known for the “Lansdowne Hercules” and the “Victorious Youth” which is actually one of the only bronze statues still intact in the world. Plenty of art pieces are unique and on display at the museum. Focusing on Greek Art and Sculpture is fairly easy as they have their own section clearly labeled Greek. This was a huge help in finding the artwork I needed. Three pieces in particular are interesting and have their own story and style. Prize Vessel from the Athenian Games, 363-362 B.C. is a “Panathenaic amphora” used as a prize to give out to the winner of the Games. The contents of the vase were usually just olive oil pressed from the sacred trees of Athens. These were made in their own unique way and almost always included a narrow neck and a standard decoration pertaining to the games. These vases are always decorated with Athena, the goddess of war, who watches over Athens. On one side, the vase is decorated with Athena in her quintessential gown and a helmet worthy of a goddess. She is depicted in sort of a stride armed with her shield and spear showing how strong she is. The other side is in this case a painting of the goddess Nike, Goddess of Victory,......

Emiliano Zapata and Panch Villa

...and Francisco “Pancho” Villa shared many things in their short lives, but more than anything they were men who saw and experienced the injustices in their homeland and gave their lives to change their country. Both men were revolutionaries, not politicians; in fact they both felt better leading men and women in battle than in fighting political battles. Both were born into small farming communities, whose inhabitants were mostly landless serfs working the lands of large haciendas where they worked as farm hands, functioned as slaves, and were officially treated as serfs. Zapata was from the southern part of Mexico while Villa´s home territory was the northern state of Chihuahua. Mexico is nearly as long as the US is wide and as diverse in topography, climate, natural resources and people. Both had some education and as teenagers, became the support for their families when their fathers died. Both men were drafted into military service but managed to complete only a portion of their terms. Zapata was a respected horse trainer and his commanding officer got him transferred to help train horses. Villa was arrested for stealing horses and forced to join the federal army. After several months he deserted because he murdered an officer and stole the man´s horse. For as many similarities the two were also very different, Pancho Villa was a brash showman, while Emiliano Zapata was quieter and spoke in a high voice. He was known as a man of few words while Villa, who did not drink,......

Villa Diodati - Research Paper

...Phong Huynh English 205 Research paper Villa Diodati Villa Diodati is a mansion in the village of Cologny near Lake Geneva in Switzerland, notable because Lord Byron rented it and stayed there with John Polidori in the summer of 1816. Villa Diodati was originally called the Villa Belle Rive, Byron named it the Villa Diodati after his family owned it. Percy Bysshe Shelley and Mary Shelley, who was renting a house nearby, is a frequent visitor.

In May 1816 the poet Percy Shelley, together with Mary Godwin and their son William travelled to Geneva. The journey across the French border and into Switzerland involved travelling through bleak, wintry landscapes. As Mary recorded afterwards in her travel volume History of a Six Weeks: Tour through a part of France, Switzerland, Germany and Holland (1817): “Never was a scene more awfully desolate. The trees in these regions are incredibly large, and stand in scattered clumps over the white wilderness; the vast expanse of snow was chequered only by these gigantic pines, and the poles that marked our road: no river or rock-encircled lawn relieved the eye, by adding the picturesque to the sublime”.

Were those who lived in this villa inspired by the environment around them? Did they find it scenic and alluring, or did those qualities manifest themselves over time? Reflecting on what this villa has been through is fascinating and compelling. Observing what the author's intentions were is nothing short of intriguing. Could the sizable color contrast illustrated in this picture be more than just arbitrary hues? Was it the photographer endeavoring to elucidate philosophical ideas? The design of the structure is impressive and absorbing. On the first floor, the villa has columns and a hallway, and then on the right side of the first floor there is a wall. On the second floor, the villa has columns above the first floor wall, and a wall above the first floor columns. The first and second floors compliment each other despite being opposites in architectural design. It is truly an exceptional scene, with a touch of warmth and wonder. The picture displays a robust villa with tangible beauty and serenity. The cameraman does an incredible job of capturing a scene which is prepossessing, despite the villa's age and its notable wear.
