wpw2016-06-06 to 2016-06-12–Zero Plastic Week 2016–‘The idea is simple: during one week, from the 6th to the 12th of June, you will not buy any new plastic whatsoever.… Share this with your friends and find out how much plastic you usually buy and throw away, without even considering it. Find out how tough it is to live without plastic for a week…. Will you succeed in not buying any plastic for a week?’

hector-berliozso i asked my high school music teacher, himself an organist, for recommendations. he suggested some orchestral music, one piece with cannons: tchaikovsky’s 1812 overture; any wagner opera; berlioz’ symphonie fantastique. also, the great gate of kiev (mussorgsky-ravel version, though the e-l-p version is loud too). and parts of orff’s carmina burana and mahler’s symphony number 2, to name a few.

elizabeth cady stantonThe US Congress passed the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote on this date in 1919 (Canada in 1920), though it ‘had been a long time in coming…. In 1848, Elizabeth Cady Stanton … adopted the language of the Declaration of Independence…: “We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness…. Now, in view of this entire disfranchisement of one-half the people of this country … we insist that they have immediate admission to all the rights and privileges which belong to them as citizens.” ‘
