Триплет: послушать, посмотреть и почитать

Сравнительно недавно появился любопытный формат сочетания музыкального альбома и мобильного приложения под названием "триплет". В мобильном приложении для смартфона к музыке добавлены слайды, текст и информация о треке. В минувшем апреле Музей космонавтики выпустил бесплатный триплет с подборкой космической музыки. Если вам хочется приобщиться к культурным артефактам в эту пятницу, вариант посмотреть триплет стоит принять во внимание.Семнадцать треков триплета "Первый космический" охватывают важные космические события. В альбом взяты композиции как известных классических электронных композиторов вроде Дидье Маруани, Zodiac или глубоко любимого мной за альбом "Музыка небесных сфер" Андрея Климковского, так и свежие работы еще малоизвестных композиторов и коллективов. Я люблю эмбиент, chillout/downtempo и электронную музыку, так что лично мне подборка понравилась.Фотографии, в большинстве своем из Музея космонавтики, иллюстрируют материал, а пояснительный текст рассказывает о событии, темой к которому выбрана музыка.Увы, не обошлось без багов - на седьмом андроиде (Galaxy S7) фотографии банально не отображаются, пришлось взять более старый телефон. Также часто зависает отображение ползунка проигрывания трека, и не сбрасывается скролл в тексте при листании, но это уже мелочи.Приложение можно бесплатно скачать в App Store, Google Play или посмотреть на YouTube, но там можно только ознакомиться, потому что треки выложены не полностью.Другие триплеты можно посмотреть на официальном сайте, там довольно много исполнителей и жанров.Я в социальных сетях:Вконтакте, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube

Ted Cruz Called Donald Trump 'A Sniveling Coward' One Year Ago

As congressional Republicans mark the seventh anniversary of the Affordable Care Act by trying to repeal it, let us pause to reflect on a somewhat less auspicious anniversary. A year ago Friday, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) called Donald Trump a “sniveling coward.” To recap: In late March 2016, with the contentious Republican presidential primary in full swing, an anti-Trump super PAC ran an ad featuring images of a scantily clad Melania Trump from a 2000 photoshoot with the caption, “meet Melania Trump. Your next first lady. Or, you could support Ted Cruz on Tuesday.” Though the Cruz campaign was not involved with the ad, Trump responded by threatening to “spill the beans” about Cruz’s wife, Heidi. “The beans,” it turned out, was a meme courtesy of someone with the Twitter handle @Don_Vito_08. "@Don_Vito_08: "A picture is worth a thousand words" @realDonaldTrump #LyingTed #NeverCruz @MELANIATRUMP pic.twitter.com/5bvVEwMVF8"— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) March 24, 2016 Because presidential campaigns aren’t typically occasions for diss battles, Trump’s retweet ate up the news cycle, prompting condemnations from Trump opponents and yet another round of handwringing from Republicans. Even considering Cruz’s distinctly melodramatic manner of public speaking ― few politicians more closely resemble a particularly self-absorbed debate club kid ― his response was intense.   “It’s not easy to tick me off. I don’t get angry often,” an incensed Cruz told reporters. “But you mess with my wife, you mess with my kids, that will do it every time. Donald, you’re a sniveling coward, and leave Heidi the hell alone.” When a reporter asked Cruz if he would support Trump if the real estate mogul and reality TV star were the Republican Party’s presidential nominee, Cruz hesitated before replying, “I’m going to beat him for the nomination. Donald Trump will not be the nominee.” He did not beat him. Donald Trump was the nominee. Ted Cruz endorsed him. Cruz’s office did not return requests for comment for this story. Things remained toxic between Cruz and Trump for the remainder of the primary and well after, with Trump regularly referring to Cruz as “Lyin’ Ted” and Cruz leveling broadsides against Trump’s character. In one speech before Cruz dropped out, he called his opponent a “pathological liar,” a “narcissist” and a “philanderer.” After footage emerged of Trump bragging about sexually assaulting women, Cruz called the comments “disturbing and inappropriate” in a tweet.  And, in what was arguably the strangest accusation leveled by Trump since his highly publicized (and highly untrue) birther campaign, he accused Cruz’s father, Rafael, of playing a part in John F. Kennedy’s assassination. He repeated the accusation a day after accepting the nomination at the GOP convention in Cleveland. Party unity can be a strange thing. In early October, the Dallas Morning News published video of Cruz phone-banking for the man who had disrespected his wife, implicated his father in a violent act of treason and seemed only one late-night tweet away from elevating the “Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer” meme from online joke to full-fledged conspiracy theory. The footage went viral: Cruz looked less like a happy warrior putting party before ego and more like a scared teenager calling his mom to pick him up from a particularly raucous house party. *record scratch, freeze frame*Yup. That's me. You might be wondering how I ended up here. pic.twitter.com/LTkx4dG6tS— Brandt (@UrbanAchievr) October 6, 2016 Trump, for his part, has tried to make amends with Cruz since taking office. In addition to having the Cruzes over to the White House for dinner, Trump invited the senator to the Oval Office for the signing of a NASA authorization bill.  And in an interview with Time magazine published this week, Trump insisted, “I like Ted Cruz, he’s a friend of mine.” But it’s not clear whether Trump is totally over his feud with Cruz. In the Time interview, he doubled ― nay, tripled ― down on the JFK claim, insisting it was something “that was in the newspaper.” Moreover, Trump, who has made a point of regularly deleting tweets, still has not deleted the one making fun of Heidi Cruz’s appearance.  And during that NASA authorization bill signing, the president, ostensibly discussing the space agency’s work, said, “It’s a pretty tough job, I dunno. Ted, would you like to do it?”  Cruz, his fingers resting gently on the Resolute Desk, smiled knowingly as Trump asked Marco Rubio, another former primary foe, the same question.  Politics hurt too much?

Safran может пересмотреть свое предложение о приобретении Zodiac

Французский производитель оборудования для аэрокосмических объектов Safran заявил, что может пересмотреть условия своего предложения о приобретении производителя авиакресел Zodiac Aerospace после того, как последний озвучил пессимистичный прогноз по финансовым результатам. Так, компания Zodiac отчиталась о резком снижении полугодовых продаж и сообщила, что ожидает 10%-ного снижения операционной прибыли за текущий год, хотя ранее прогнозировала 20%-ное повышение. Напомним, что в январе Safran заключила соглашение о покупке Zodiac за 8,5 млрд евро ($9 млрд). Однако французская компания отметила, что учтет последние новости при проведении эксклюзивных переговоров с Zodiac на тему их слияния, не уточнив при этом, какие изменения могут быть внесены в условия сделки.

14 Photos That Show The Original Asian-American Resistance

By the 1960s, Asian-Americans were already being portrayed as a U.S. “model minority” ― a group whose diligent work, personal responsibility and success proved that the American dream was attainable to all. It turns out, the label didn’t tell the full story.  As a new exhibition at the Los Angeles Chinese American Museum argues, young Asian Americans of the time were busy writing their own narrative and protesting just like their Black and Chicano counterparts. Through protest and art, they denounced the Vietnam War and refused to be pigeonholed as model minorities who could easily overcome systemic barriers. “Beginning in the late 1960s, Asian-Americans nationwide were building social service institutions and feminist collectives, marching against the war, critiquing and sometimes even trying to overthrow the U.S. government,” said Ryan Wong, one of the curators of the exhibition “Roots: Asian American Movements in Los Angeles 1968–80s.” According to Wong, it’s no coincidence that the term “model minority” was being coined around the same time the Asian-American movement was radicalizing a generation of young people. Groups of Asians protesting for their rights wasn’t the story most media outlets or social theorists wanted to acknowledge. “The ‘model minority’ idea was used as a weapon against the social movements of the civil rights era, suggesting that activism wasn’t necessary if a group could only ‘work harder,’” he said.  The Asian-American movement chronicled in the exhibition shatters that myth, he added.  Told through photographs, posters and oral histories, “Roots” shows how Asian-Americans formed civil rights organizations at colleges like UC Berkeley, fought against gentrification and ultimately banded together to form a new pan-Asian political identity. “Until about 1968, you either identified with your country of origin ― mostly China, Japan, and the Philippines at that point ― or were lumped under the term ‘Oriental,’” Wong said.  By the late 1960s and early 1970s, Asian-Americans of different ancestral countries recognized their shared history of racial discrimination and realized they’d have a stronger voice together.  “That idea spread like wildfire across campuses and organizing centers nationally, which is amazing in a time before social media,” Wong said.  For many, the Vietnam War was an obvious entry point into activism. Unlike the mainstream anti-war movement, many Asian-American activists perceived the United States’ participation in the war as a form of imperialism. Others saw parallels between the treatment of the Vietnamese abroad and the incarceration of Japanese-Americans during World War II, according to Steve Wong, the chief curator at the museum. “War helped unify Asian Americans. It connected anti-imperialist movements in South East Asia to the oppression of Asians in the U.S.,” Steve explained. “A common slogan during this time was ‘No Vietnamese ever called me a Chink.’ Asians brought attention to the racialized component to the Vietnam War.” Some pieces in the exhibition reveal a more radical side of the movement, like Leland Wong’s Black Panthers–inspired “Year of the People/Off the Pigs.” Riffing on 1971 as the year of the pig in the Chinese zodiac, Leland’s illustration shows Asian-Americans attacking what they perceived as oppressive power structures in their community ― far from “model minority” behavior.  It’s an illustration that can be shocking if you’ve never heard about early activism in Asian communities. Let’s face it: Asian-Americans might be the fastest-growing racial group in the United States, but their complicated history in American society tends to get the short shrift.  “If you’re like me, you were never taught this history in school and never saw it depicted in TV shows, movies or newspapers,” said exhibition curator Ryan, who grew up in Los Angeles in 1990s.  Few Asian-Americans today know about Gidra, a newspaper of the movement that featured wry political illustrations and commentary, Ryan noted  ― or the fight to free Chol Soo Lee, a Korean-American immigrant who was wrongfully convicted of murder in 1973. At the opening of the exhibition earlier this month, many young attendees were taken aback by the material.  “Someone came up to me and said, ‘I’ve been organizing since 2004, and I thought that was a long time,” Ryan said. “It’s incredible to see how people our age ― in their 20s at the time― built a dynamic movement that reshaped their communities.”  Ultimately, he hopes the exhibition creates a sense of continuity between today’s activists and older ones.  “If these histories are erased and buried, each generation feels a little more alone, like we are starting from scratch,” Ryan said. “I hope people see how the past informs not only today’s movements, but our futures.”  “Roots: Asian American Movements in Los Angeles 1968–80s” is free (donations are welcome) and will run until June 11.
