Barbra Streisand - If You Go Away (Ne Me Quitte Pas) - 2009

One of the gems from Barbra's new CD "Love is the Answer" produced by Diana Krall to be released on September 29th in the US. This is Barbra at 67!!!! taking another classic and delivering a definitive rendition (IMHO). Just awesome and inspiring.

7th Casa Thomas Jefferson Seminar-July/2009

Last week I was in Brasilia for the 7th Casa Thomas Jefferson (a Binational Center in Brasilia)Seminar as a presenter. I was invited by Carla Arena as we have been in contact since September/2008 when I did her webtools4brazilianeducators course.
It was a very special experience for me , actually my first experience out of town as a presenter. The event was fantastic, very well organized and it was a great opportunity to meet face to face some people I have been in contact for quite some time in cyberspace. I decided to focus my presentation on the transformative power of Technology/Web 2.0 and the way my daily life as an EFL Teacher/Educator at CCBEU has changed drastically ever since I did the course and started learning more about the tools and their endless possibilities.
I believe that this is certainly the best way for us to keep in touch and promote professional development. Some of my colleagues had the chance to watch the presentation via SKYPE, which was only possible because of Technology.
I was inspired by Barbra Streisand and her movie YENTL since the main idea of the movie is the fact that NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE and although I have been teaching for 20 years now, after I started using more technology I realized everything I had learned so far was nothing but a Piece of Sky.

A piece of SKY

So here you should have the presentation. Some slides were added because some information was provided to attendees and it's important whoever visits this blog should be able to fully understand my idea as I developed the presentation.

They say there is no such thing as perfection. However, when I come across this kind of music I am not sure I would agree with it. It has always amazed me how gifted some people are. It does not matter the kind of art they represent because I think that no one can resist real talent when one is introduced to it.

A picture is worth...

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. I've just discovered this new photo editing tool (FunPhotoBox) and decided to have some fun with it.

Truth be said, we have all been so busy it's only human to forget about so many important events. As they say, better late than never, and I would like to share my 2 cents here about the Earth Day.

I have always been a huge fan of music and its power to change the world. I could quote Barbra Streisand (again) when she says "Music is the connective tissue among souls". I could never define it any better. Today I was a little bit gloomy maybe because I've just seen my doctor and I have to do an "uncomfortable" exam because of this chronic intestine disease I have. Well, while doing my daily reading I came across this video posted by Luli Radfahrer and it was an amazing experience for me. Well, I hope you enjoy it and see that many times we complain just because we've got used to this ugly habit. Enjoy the video - learn the lesson.
