Antonio Vivaldi inspired today’s Google Doodle

Google made another Doodle for Antonio Vivaldi because today is his birthday. So who the hell is Antonio Vivaldi and why he is worthy to have his very own Google doodle? There are so many musicians out there, but why did Google choose Vivaldi?

Antonio Vivaldi was a Venetian baroque composer and priest, as well as a famous virtuoso violinist, born and raised in the Republic of Venice.

His most famous work is Le quattro stagioni (The Four Seasons) of 1723. In essence, it resembles an early example of a tone poem, where he attempted to capture all the moods of the four seasons. It’s his best-known work and is representative of the baroque period in European art music.

He has 46 operas and 90 sonatas which is quite a record and nobody ever achieved that much number of operas and sonatas in the history of mankind. Over 500 Vivaldi concertos exists today, as well as 40 cantatas, 22 operas, and more than 60 sacred works.

So is that enough to be worthy of a Google Doodle?

It’s not just that. Vivaldi’s music was innovative in its time, breaking a consolidated tradition in schemes; he gave brightness to the formal and the rhythmic structure of the concerto, repeatedly looking for harmonic contrasts and innovative melodies and themes; many of his compositions reflect a flamboyant, and almost playful exuberance.

Vivaldi is considered one of the composers who brought baroque music to evolve into a classical style.

U.S. plans to shift their troops in Afghanistan for a bigger role

The United States government to shift their plans for their elite units in Paktika Province, Afghanistan, to play a bigger role. They want to lower down its combat role in Afghanistan a year earlier than expected relies on shifting responsibility to Special Operations forces that hunt insurgent leaders and train local troops.

This news is according to senior officials and military officers from the Pentagon. The US armed forces could remain in Afghanistan after the NATO mission ends in late 2014. This plan was already approved by the president Obama. He also sent 32,000 more troops in Afghanistan last week.

American conventional forces will be the first to leave, while thousands of American Special Operations forces remain, making up an increasing percentage of the troops on the ground. The number of troops to be assigned in Afghanistan will relatively grow in the months to come.

Officials and military planners from the Pentagon say the new plan for Afghanistan is not a direct action to the deteriorating conditions in Iraq. The planned shift could give Mr. Obama a political shield against attacks from his Republican rivals in the presidential race who have already begun criticizing him for moving too fast to extract troops from Afghanistan.

The officials from the White House confirmed in broad terms the shift to a Special Operations mission, and said a formal announcement on the future of the mission was expected at the May summit meeting of NATO leaders in Chicago.

Currently, the U.S. has around 90,000 troops in Afghanistan, with 22,000 of them expected to leave by this fall. No schedule has been set for the pace of withdrawal for the 68,000 American troops who will remain in Afghanistan. Some administration officials are advocating for Mr. Obama to order another reduction by the summer of 2013.

Zed appeals for sincere re-look at non-violence on “International Day of Non-Violence”

World needed to sincerely re-look at non-violence, Hindu statesman Rajan Zed stated in his message for “International Day of Non-Violence” marked by United Nations on peace icon Mahatma Gandhi’s birthday which falls on October two.

Rajan Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, pointed out that non-violence was held as one of the greatest virtues in Hinduism and expressed the sacredness of life. Let us take a vow on this day to lead our lives without hurting others, Zed added in his statement issued in Nevada (USA) today.

Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) was one of the few men in history to fight simultaneously on moral, religious, political, social, economic, and cultural fronts. He is held in high esteem globally for his philosophy of non-violence, his commitment to world peace, and his work for the upliftment of the downtrodden.

We’ve Got Our Eye on QB’s in Second Week as Starters

Those engaged in NFL betting have to be keenly aware of who is at the trigger of the league’s offenses; several QB’s made their season debut last Sunday, and we’ve got our eye on them as they move into their second week as starters. Sometimes it’s a flash in the pan, but sometimes it’s also the kind of spark that can ignite an offense. Three of these guys will be at the helm of NFL betting underdogs this weekend.

Charlie Batch did a great job for the Steelers against the Bucs, which confounded many NFL bettors, including myself. he went 17 for 28 for 211 yards a three touchdowns, though we should note that he threw a pair of interceptions. He got the nod to start again on Sunday against Baltimore. Mike Tomlin said, “We won last week. That’s a good place to start.” Yup. Batch will warm the seat until Ben Roethlisberger returns from his four-game suspension, and he was chosen for that ahead of Brian Leftwich. The Steelers are 1.5-point NFL betting favorites over Baltimore this Sunday.

Ryan Fitzpatrick seemed to light a fire under the Buffalo offense, hitting 20 of 28 passes for 247 yards. That was good for a 92.4 quarterback rating, which is better than he chalked up the last couple of seasons (70.0 and 69.7) for the Bengals and Bills. You have to remember that Fitzpatrick was not unfamiliar with being Buffalo’s starter; he threw 227 passes last year, with nine TD’s. When the Bills’ training camp began, there was supposed to be a battle between Fitzpatrick and Trent Edwards for the starting job, but it was more or less given to Edwards. Chan Gailey must have seen that as a mistake during the opener against Miami, and he liked what he saw out of the Harvard guy against New England. So did some of the players. “He did a great job out there operating the offense and keeping the defense off the field,” rookie C.J. Spiller told the Boston Globe.

Gailey obviously seems confident enough in Fitzpatrick (he’s also got Brian Brohm on the roster) that he placed Trent Edwards on waivers rather than wait around and try to make a trade for him. There was intense interest in Edwards, and it seemed rather coincidental. It came from the Jets (laying 5.5 points to the Bills in NFL betting this week) and Jaguars, who happen to be Buffalo’s next two opponents. Jacksonville won out, and they’ll get the benefit of Edwards’ insight before they play the Bills. that kind of thing goes around in the NFL.

Bruce Gradkowski completed just half his passes, but helped to keep the Raiders in the game and with a chance to win. His was probably the strangest quarterback change of last week, since Oakland was so excited about acquiring Jason Campbell in the off-season. But the Toledo alum is known among the players as someone who brings some energy into the huddle, something he demonstrated last year when subbing for JaMarcus Russell, who was benched. The Raiders are a three-point home underdog in NFL betting as the Texans come to town. Houston is giving up more than nine yards a pass attempt, so a lot of people are using Gradkowski in their fantasy leagues.
