Huile sur toile,

Musée du Prado, Madrid.
Le 17 octobre 1629 eut lieu un événement longtemps attendu à la Cour : la naissance du prince Baltasar Carlos, héritier du trône. Bien qu’il fût dans les habitudes de la famille royale de peindre le portrait des enfants dès leur naissance, le roi refusa de confier le travail à des peintres autres que Velázquez, attendant patiemment son retour. Celui-ci se mit au travail aussitôt après son retour. En mars 1631, le portrait du Prince Baltasar Carlos avec son nain était achevé. Il est représenté avec une épée, arborant le costume d’apparat brodé d’or de capitaine-général et l’écharpe rouge, et tenant une épée. Au côté du prince se tient un nain.
Ce tableau inaugure une série de portraits d’enfants. Velázquez excellait dans la reproduction des attitudes propres aux enfants. Le dynamisme de la scène est souligné par la composition
à deux plans. Par ailleurs, les cramoisis de la draperie et du tapis ainsi que du velours du coussin, les brocarts d’or et d’argent du costume du prince, et le tablier blanc du nain, créent une gamme de couleurs joyeuse qui témoigne de l’ascendant de la peinture italienne.See All Chapters

Generate Links to Google Maps in a Spreadsheet
Get a handle on your own data with Google Maps.
What if you could create a private (or public) web page with links to Google
Maps for each of the people in your company? Or all the members of your social club or church? You would be able to click on the names of people in your group and pop up a map of their location. Well, you can!
In “Inside Google Maps URLs” [Hack #7], we examined the structure of Google
Maps URLs. Now we will use that information to create links to Google Maps that show your own contacts. We’ll assume that you’ve got your contacts in a spreadsheet program, such as Microsoft Excel, Gnumeric, or OpenOffice Calc.
Figure 1-22 shows a sample data set with a name, street address, city, state, and ZIP Code set up in columns. This spreadsheet is available as http:// mappinghacks.com/google/sample_data.xls.See All Chapters

The very awareness of what is is a liberative process. So long as we are unaware of what we are and are trying to become something else, so long will there be distortion and pain. The very awareness of what I am brings about transformation and the freedom of understanding.
Ojai, 5th Public Talk, May 5, 1946 The Collected Works, Vol. IV, p. 75
As long as you are looking for transformation, a result to be gained, there will be no transformation. As long as you are thinking in terms of achievement, in terms of time, there can be no transformation, for then the mind is caught in the net of time. When you say you are thinking in terms of immediate transformation, you are thinking of yesterday, today, and tomorrow. Such transformation within time is merely change, which is modied continuity. When thought is free of time, there will be a timeless transformation.
As long as a problem is thought about, the problem will continue. Thought creates the problem. That which is the result of the past, the mind, cannot solve the problem. The mind can analyse, can examine, but it cannot resolve the problem. The problem, however complex and however close, ceases only when the thought process comes to an end.See All Chapters

In The Feminine Mystique—Betty Friedan’s 1963 attack on domesticity—the author describes how she “gradually, without seeing it clearly for quite a while . . . came to realize that something is very wrong with the way American women are trying to live their lives today.”1 Despite the outward appearances of wealth and contentment, Friedan argued that the Cold War was killing happiness. Women, in particular, faced strong public pressures to conform with a family image that emphasized a finely manicured suburban home, pampered children, and an ever-present “housewife heroine.”2 This was the asserted core of the good American life. This was the cradle of freedom. This was, in the words of Adlai Stevenson, the “assignment” for “wives and mothers”: “Western marriage and motherhood are yet another instance of the emergence of individual freedom in our Western society. Their basis is the recognition in women as well as men of the primacy of personality and individuality.”3See All Chapters
