Shakespeer y Shakespeare.

acontece en un cruce improbable de dos sentidos.

El primero, en la unión de dos palabras: shake [-up] (sacudir, agitar, remover bruscamente; debilitar, desalentar... pero también zafarse, liberarse). Y peer que, en una de sus acepciones señala a quienes son pares en un grupo (por edad, posición social y/o habilidades) y en laotra acepción describe la posesión de título nobiliario en el Reino Unido (esto incluye a quienes alcanzan honor de
Lord y por eso su lugar en la Cámara).

El segundo sentido es más intuitivo: la similitud fonética con el apellido del genial William, quien conocía varios (más) de los vericuetos del corazón humano.

En ese cruce breve, en ese chispazo más que improbable, en ese enlace natural, se despliega este blog.

I want to be cool... III

  1. Not many people know about Marie Curie’s activities during the Worl War One. The grateful woman went to battlefield with her daughter Irene (later well known as the author of her mother’s biography) to set up an X-ray able to be carried around and get precise diagnosis of wound soldiers (she got the money from wealthy French families, universities and automobile factories).  In 1914 went in the first ambulance, only equipped with X-ray equipment motorized by a horsepower. Full of enthusiasm Mary learned anatomy, took radiology samples and even drove their vehicle! They say the very first soldier who got into the ambulance had bullets in his head, arm and hips. After took care, Mary diagnosed another 29 French privates just in one night and more than a million during two years, the whole time that this French Army service lasted). Mary Curie – or better: Marya Sklodowska, was born in November the 7th of 1867 in Warsaw and passed away in July the 4th of 1934.
  2. Rachel was born in a small town in Pennsylvania, in 1907. She was brought up in a small farm and seems there became really interested in nature (she usually write poems about her animals – how sweet from a little girl!). When she reached 18 years old, left her family home and went to study zoology at the Pennsylvania College for Women. She graduated in 1929 and then study at the John Hopkins University in Baltimore. For many, many years she worked as a biologist. She had no doubt at all about people, animals and plants are all linked and her books were fundamental to many people to understand the importance of environment for every one of us. Nowadays, they call her ‘The Mother of the Environmental Movement’.
I want to be cool, just like these people.

I. They say before die, Thirteenth Lama left some signs about his forecomming reincarnation in Tibet. Some apprentices left his body pointing to the South - a traditional position according the Buddhism. The next morning, his head was aiming the Northwest. So everybody understood: was already time to the Lhamo Lhatso lake holy journey (of course placed at the Northwest) in order to receive one more sign. And so they had: One of those apprentices beholds some images of the Tibet Mountains and an Ancient Monastery aside with a golden and green roof. The quest group for the next Dalai goes to the Taktser town where they did found a monastery like the waters had shown. From one house came out a two years old joyful boy and ask to the Abbot Sera to give as a present to him the hanging sutra carried in his ropes. It had belonged to the deceased Lama. Estrangers subject the boy to several proves, and the little boy always choose the Dalai Lama things. The quest has finally reached its end. There he was: a servant’s son who live next to a Monastery in Kumbum and also the Fourteenth Lama, meant to be the Buddhist world leader.

II. Helen Keller was wealthy Arthur and Kate's daughter, born in Alabama (USA) in 1880. The little girl catches a diseased which left her blind and deaf before turns two years old. Family’s Doctor, the notorious Alexander Graham Bell, recommends taking Helen to the 'Deaf & Blind Institute' in Boston. In there they met Anne Sullivan, an Irish orphan young woman who accept to teach little Helen. Anne putted a doll in Helen hands and then wrote in the girl’s palm the word ‘doll’. Seems the method did work out and just only two years later, Helen mastered the Braille System and wanted to become familiarize with human voices. To achieve it the girl just put her hand in Anne’s throat and perceived its vibrations as the teacher talks. Helen went to Wight-Humason School (for deaf children) and learned Math, Geography, Physics, German and French. But that wasn’t enough, and Helen held up the studying and got her School degree with honors.
