La conquista de la Lisboa mora

Que cidade encontraram D. Afonso Henriques e os Cruzados quando, em Outubro de 1147, tomaram Al Usbuna, a urbe islâmica que viria a chamar-se Lisboa? Como coabitavam as diversas populações de Al Usbuna? Como é que a organização social se traduzia na organização do território da cidade? 
Uma surpreendente visita que começa por ser guiada pela arqueóloga Manuela Leitão, que conhece como poucos a Cerca Moura de Lisboa, e que segue depois com o Professor José Luís de Matos, que vai contar-nos o que viu em Al Usbuna um cruzado inglês que participou na conquista da cidade para a cristandade papal.

Masters of the Japanese Sword - Risuke Otake & Hakudo Nakayama


A compilation of KORYU KENJUTSU (classical style Samurai sword technique) demonstrations by Master Risuke Otake (born 1926) of the Katori Shinto Ryu style, Japan's oldest martial tradition with 600 years of tradition (the school was founded in 1447), and Master Hakudo Nakayama (1872-1958), who founded the Muso Shinden Ryu style in 1932, giving demonstrations in 1966 (age 84) and 1921 (age 49) demonstrating old-style Eishin Ryu Kenjutsu. This is interesting to practitioners of Budo because the Katori Shinto Ryu is the oldest existing traditional school. It is also interesting to practitioners of Shotokan Karate because Hakudo Nakayama was Gigo Funakoshi's (also known as "Yoshitaka" Funakoshi, Gigo was the third son of Gichin Funakoshi, the founder of Shotokan Karate) teacher. Gigo Funakoshi studied kendo and iaido with Hakudo Nakayama, and aspects of this training in the Way of the Sword influenced the early development of Shotokan Karate in the 1930's and 40's. This compilation video was edited by Marco Jovic of the Hayashi Dojo Team in Mannheim, Germany. It is intended as a learning tool for the students at Hayashi Dojo to learn about the important masters of the Samurai sword traditions.

O Meu Brasil Brasileiro



(Aquarela do Brasil - Gal Costa) 

Chico Buarque - "Quem te Viu, Quem te Vê" (Ao Vivo)


Você era a mais bonita das cabrochas dessa ala
Você era a favorita onde eu era mestre-sala
Hoje a gente nem se fala mas a festa continua
Suas noites são de gala, nosso samba

ainda é na rua
Hoje o samba saiu lá lalaiá, procurando você
Quem te viu, quem te vê
Quem não a conhece não pode mais ver pra crer
Quem jamais a esquece não pode reconhecer
Quando o samba começava você era a mais brilhante
E se a gente se cansava você só seguia adiante

Hoje a gente anda distante do calor
do seu gingado
Você só dá chá dançante onde eu
não sou convidado
O meu samba se marcava na cadência os seus passos
O meu sono se embalava no carinho dos seus braços
Hoje de teimoso eu passo bem
em frente ao seu portão
Pra lembrar que sobra espaço
no barraco e no cordão
Todo ano eu lhe fazia uma cabrocha
de alta classe
De dourado eu lhe vestia pra que
o povo admirasse
Eu não sei bem com certeza porque

foi que um belo dia
Quem brincava de princesa acostumou na fantasia
Hoje eu vou sambar na pista, você vai de galeria

Quero que você assista na mais fina companhia
Se você sentir saudade por favor não de na vista
Bate palma com vontade
Faz de conta que é turista

Hoje o samba saiu...
Compositor: Chico Buarque - 1967

Finding Balance in Korean Sword Making

Balance can be described as finding the equalizing point between two opposing forces, and as both a design principle and a life philosophy, it is central to Korean culture. For master swordsmith Eun-cheul Lee, balance is essential to the creation of his hand-crafted swords. He revived a traditional Korean style of sword making that had been lost for 100 years. By blending different types of iron ore to make the steel used in his swords, he achieves balance in his blades and successfully brings an ancient technique into modern times.

No está carente de razón

Alquimia

Mi madre tenía entre diversos frutos secos unas castañas pilongas a las cuales no había quien les metiera el diente. Eran más de martillo que de incisivo, canino o molar. Así que opté por sumergirlas en moscatel. A las 24 horas el aspecto era este después de haberse chupado 20 cm cúbicos de moscatel (2 cm de altura por 10 de anchura del pote no os asustéis). Las he vuelto a cubrir de moscatel y ya os contaré...

Salmón marinado

Un plato fácil de realizar y de escaso coste. Ideal para celebraciones o lo que sea!

Material:
Un tronco de salmón
Sal
Azúcar
Eneldo




Métodos:
Abrir por la mitad y quitar las espinas al salmón


Verter en un bol el kilo de sal y mezclar con 200 gr (más o menos) de azúcar


Cortar el eneldo a pequeños fragmentos y mezclarlo con el contenido del bol (para aquellos a los que les disgusta el eneldo una alternativa es echar pimienta negra en su lugar 

Cubrir la base de la bandeja que vayamos a utilizar para preparar el salmón con parte del contenido del bol


Ahora viene mi ingrediente secreto (ya no por motivos obvios) un poco de vodka (en esta ocasión utilicé Zubrowka, un vodka polaco que contiene una hierba de bisonte en su interior y le da un aroma vegetal dulzón -solo aroma, por que es más seco que el ojo de un tuerto este vodka-
  

Usamos la conocida técnica de un vaso para el cordero y otro para el cocinero. Así que un chupito para el maestro y con el otro vasito bañamos las superficies carnosas del salmón (Importante, no se ha de quitar las pieles al mismo)- Tras el baño de vodka se depositan las lonchas de salmón sobre la bandeja y a seguir se cubren completamente con el resto del combinado sal-azúcar-eneldo




Se cubre la bandeja con un film de plástico de cocina y se busca un peso para dejarlo sobre la bandeja dentro del frigorífico


A las 24 horas se voltea el salmón y a las 48 ya lo tenemos cocinado


Algún detalle adicional:
Como peso empleo un libro de bioquímica, el Lehninger, probablemente el libro que más he utilizado desde que empecé la carrera ;) A parte de ser un excelente libro que me permitió aprobar con nota uno de los huesos de primero de carrera posteriormente ha ido genial tanto para repasar temas como para prensar el salmón

 

Una vez tenemos el salmón marinado es fácil preparar entrantes. Puede servirse directamente en lonchas o bien combinado con otros ingredientes da entrantes espectaculares. En esta ocasión lo corté a daditos tipo tartar y junto con queso burrata y tomate preparé unos tartar de salmón marinado de los que solo quedó el vaso, De cualquier manera pienso q es de mejor combinación con el aguacate (ahí lo dejo)

Iaido cuts


Kirikaeshi


Kirikaeshi (切り返し:きりかえし), not to be confused with the backwards throw used in sumo and jujutsu with the same name, and with a literal meaning of "cutting repeatedly", is a kendo exercise, combining the practice of attacking and receiving strikes and is meant to develop physical strength, spirit, and vigor. Kirikaeshi is also known as uchikaeshi (打ち返し:うちかえし) "striking repeatedly".

Kirikaeshi is a drill done with a partner that involves a succession of strikes to e.g. the head (men, in Japanese). Kirikaeshi was established as a basic exercise toward the end of the Meiji era (1868–1912). The exercise typically begins with a strike to the center of the head, followed by a series of alternating strikes to the left and right sides of the head (yokomen). Though the exact method of kirikaeshi can vary among dojo, the most common scheme involves a single strike to the center of the head, followed by four angled strikes going forward (starting on the receiver's left side), and five strokes going backward. Kirikaeshi practice is the staple of kendo training. It teaches a number of important principles including proper distance and timing, accuracy, rhythm, and smoothness.

At some Kendo dojo, the practice of kirikaeshi is performed at the start and end of kendo practice sessions.

When kirikaeshi is executed properly, the two players involved will benefit from the practice of precision attacking and the quick reaction/perception in receiving such an attack. The one who receives the kirikaeshi leads the attacker thus controlling the pace and maai (fighting distance) of the training. The receiver may allow hits to the head but when receiving with the shinai, must also demonstrate tenouchi (tightening the grip at the moment of impact). The attacker must make strong, precise and timed strikes while retaining relaxed shoulders and steady breathing. This will result in increased stamina.

For both the attacker and receiver, posture must be kept proper and footwork and movement should be smooth for this practice to facilitate the weeding out of bad habits. If kirikaeshi is practiced regularly, the application will benefit the practitioner from the improvement of basic skills to the perfect execution in combat.

Technique
The shinai is swung up in a large movement and a normal men strike is delivered. After taiatari (body check, only if both kendōka are wearing armour), alternate right and left angled strikes to the temple area (yokomen) are given 9 times (4 forward and 5 back) while shouting “men, men, men” in a loud voice. Then the striker moves quickly from tōma to issoku-ito-no-ma (one-step striking distance), and the process is repeated. A final strike to men is delivered to complete the exercise.

When receiving Kirikaeshi with the shinai, the shinai is held in a low hasso gamae stance (waist level), alternating between left and right. The receiver uses tenouchi to shield against the partner’s shinai.

Variations
There are several variations on the standard kirikaeshi.
Dō Kirikaeshi: Though this variation starts exactly the same, the naname uchi is replaced with alternating dō cuts, beginning with reverse (or gyaku) dō. The receiver maintains a jōdan-no-kamae while receiving the dō cuts. This is known as a more difficult variation for having a small margin of error.
Alternating Kirikaeshi: This variation alternates between naname uchi to the men and to the dō every two cuts.
Double Kirikaeshi:  This variation has both attacker and receiver performing the naname uchi. Much like blocking the attacker's shinai in the standard kirikaeshi, the receiver's naname uchi will hit the attacker's naname uchi causing them to bounce off each other, making way for the next cut. The same as the standard kirikaeshi, the target is the yokomen for both sides. Footwork is optional.
Continuous Kirikaeshi: This variation is a standard naname uchi to the men, but instead of the standard 9 strikes (4 forwards, 5 backwards), either an alternate number (50 and 100 are relatively common) or distance ("From here to the other side of the dojo", for example) is utilized. As opposed to standard Kirikaeshi, this variation of the drill builds endurance and stamina rather than improving precision.
