On video | Vives joins the tribute to Billo’s with ‘Three pearls’

If there is a classic of tropical music that fraternally links Santa Marta, Barranquilla and Cartagena, that’s the Three Pearl joint, immortalized by the Billo’s Caracas Boys, an orchestra founded by the Dominican Luis María Frómeta Pereira in 1940 and which he conducted until the last of his days (May 5, 1988).

This song, released in 1971, now it has a new version interpreted by the samarium Carlos Vives, who is heard singing: “Santa Marta, Barranquilla and Cartagena / are three pearls that sprouted in the sand.”

Vives, who confesses himself a great fan of maestro Billo Frómeta, was pleased to participate in the album Legendarios, a tribute to this disappeared figure of our Latin music.

This production consists of 12 songs with 11 guest artists, 10 hit songs from Billo’s and two unreleased songs, including one with a Christmas theme.

“Participating in this album is as if I had won an award, I don’t know what, but I feel like an award,” Vives commented in a promotional video for the song.

Added that Bringing his music and legacy to these times will be vital for many to dance to.. “I know that some are going to cry, and the youth will be able to discover a great figure in music, who is no longer only from Dominicans, Venezuelans, or Colombians, but from all of America, long live Billo Frómeta, a great musical legend ”.

With this song from Billo’s, Vives relives that time of yesteryear and good dance music.

The popularity of this orchestra in the December festivities in Colombia and Venezuela has made it your New Years success has become an anthem every time the whistles are sounded to welcome you to a new calendar.

More about the project. Adrián Frómeta, grandson of maestro Billo, the goal has been set to put this great Orchestra back on the music scene who has just turned 80 and has more than 100 productions.

To achieve this great project, Remil Renna and Víctor Pabon were appointed as producers, who are working hard for the album’s release next month.

Tito Rojas, Álex Bueno and Óscar D ‘León are some artists who said yes to Legendarios. The rest of the payroll participating in this tribute will be known soon.

La Billo’s had a great influence from the music of Caracas, the Colombian coast and Cuba, and put together a repertoire in which the porro, guaracha, boleros and merengue predominated.

Luna: Colombian architect created the first habitat outside the Earth – Other Cities – Colombia

One of the most ambitious projects in recent times is in the hands of a young Quindian architect.

Julián Andrés Ocampo Salazar is in charge of designing an environment or habitat where humans can live, but outside of planet Earth, either on the Moon or on Mars.

(Read may interest: When will new covid-19 peaks be experienced in the capitals of the country?)

This would be the first permanent construction to take place outside of Earth. The project directed by Ocampo is called Olympus and is executed in partnership between the architectural design companies BIG (Bjarke Ingels Group), ICON and NASA.

Olympus construction would begin in several years Well, initially, the necessary infrastructure must be built and some technologies developed to start making the first habitat.

Nonetheless, Olympus’ schedule aligned with other projects such as Artemis, a manned spaceflight program led by NASA and some spaceflight companies from the US and international allies such as the European Space Agency (ESA), the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA), the Canadian Space Agency (CSA) and the Australian Space Agency (ASA). Artemis seeks to re-explore the Moon after half a century of the Apollo 11 mission and to bring the first woman and the next man to this natural satellite by 2024.

(We recommend you read: A palm tree fell on me when I was tanning in San Andrés and that’s how I survived)

“We are part of that and the idea is that with our habitat we can give support to the missions of Artemis,” said Ocampo.

With projects like Artemis and Olympus, the long-term goal is to establish a permanent presence on the Moon and on Mars, and send humans in the next decade.

To design this project, Ocampo took into account the environment on the lunar surface that is ‘uninhabitable for human beings’ for various reasons, such as the low gravity on the satellite which is only one sixth of that on Earth, or the temperature, which can vary between 123 degrees Celsius during the lunar day to -247 degrees Celsius during the lunar night, in addition to the fact that there is no atmosphere on the satellite that helps reduce solar gases.

“The surface of the Moon is in a complete vacuum, so the walls must be able to maintain an internal pressure that resembles the pressure of the Earth’s atmosphere. On the moon there are earthquakes that, although they may be less intense than on Earth, are of longer duration, about 3 or 5 hours. Meteorites or micrometeorites also fall, so a specific thickness is needed. In addition, radiation is one of the factors that most affect the size of the walls, ”explained the 35-year-old architect.

So, to counteract the radiation on the Moon, the habitat will have to be built with walls about two meters thick. “On the moon, radiation is approximately 100 times more intense than on Earth, that is, the walls need to be at least two meters long to reduce radiation to normal levels for a human habitat,” he said. .

The purpose is to use the materials found on the Moon to build this first habitat for humans. Hence, 3D printers developed by the ICON company will be sent, and with them, “lunar dust could be collected and turned into a malleable substance like concrete that can be 3D printed,” explained Ocampo.

He added that “if the materials were sent from Earth it would be economically unfeasible due to the cost of fuel. “Just carrying a kilogram of material would be worth about $ 3,600 and the walls are 2 meters wide each, it would be impossible. What we are looking for is to use the elements that are on the moon ”, he added.

The young Quindiano is part of BIG, an architectural design office based in various cities including London, Barcelona, ​​New York and Copenhagen. And for this specific project, BIG has as a strategic ally ICON, a company that develops automated construction technologies, “such as high-end 3D printers that can print a house, it is the first company in the United States to receive a construction permit for a house with a 3D printer ”, he said.

After water reservoirs were found at the north and south poles of the Moon in 2009, “human beings can stay permanently without the need to carry water from Earth. The Moon can become a landing point and Olympus becomes not only a place where we will do studies but also a springboard to the rest of the Universe. It is the logical step for the exploration of the universe ”, added Ocampo.

Building the first permanent habitat on the Moon will take time like major infrastructure projects on Earth.

“The largest cathedrals in the world have been built in many, many years and to build a habitat on the Moon will take a long time, so what we have done is organize the calendar of our project with Artemis. In 2024 they plan to send people to the Moon and begin the recognition and study of the lunar surface in order to begin the habitat construction program, “said the Colombian.



Carmelo Valencia | The Herald

Due to my work as a commentator on Blu Radio, I have the opportunity to see all the Colombian professional soccer teams many times, not only when they face Junior. This, perhaps, helps me to form an idea closer to the true level of the players. To his current status, and not only to some antecedents, good or bad, or to the impression he caused the day he compared with the Barranquilla team.

Perhaps that is why I referred to Carmelo Valencia, right here, in this heap from where I look at football work, after the announcement of his arrival at Junior at the beginning of this year. “Very veteran and fast forward. Powerful, insistent. Surprisingly evolved the previous semester in defects that syndicated him: little fluidity with the ball and excessive wrong plays in the face of goal ”.

Later I described some of the virtues that he had displayed during the tournament: “He has had a formidable season in Cúcuta with goals, speed, imbalance, correct participation in the team game, physical energy, determination. Did you have any reservations for the Junior? We will know in time ”.

The question, surely, was due to the generalized prejudice that is installed around the players with the age of Valencia. Well, for now it seems that he still has physical and football reserves, and these days he has been the main actor for his goals in the series against América and in the Copa Libertadores in the win against Independiente del Valle. He is doing his part to be the starter. The other part depends on Amaranto Perea.


Video: Young Colombian woman beaten on Miami train receives help from consulate – Politics

This Saturday a video was released showing a 25-year-old African-American who entered a car of a small subway that operates in downtown Miami (USA) and Without a word he began to hit and kick a Colombian woman about twenty times and for no apparent reason, the only passenger at that time, as seen in the security cameras.

The incident occurred on September 4, the day that Joshua James King struck out against Colombian Andrea Puerta and then did the same against two more Hispanics, Eduardo Treviño and Nelti Medrano, in two attacks on the same transportation system, according to the judicial report obtained this Saturday by Efe.

King, who faces three criminal charges of aggravated assault and three other minor assault charges, was released on $ 1,500 bail days after his arrest.

The 29-year-old Colombian told local media and her country that she does not know the reasons for the attack, that it was the first time she had seen King and that such a violent man should not have been released.

Puerta, who suffered a concussion, is still recovering from his injuries. He has a broken rib, a swollen jaw, a black eye, and an injured arm.

“There was a moment when he said: ‘I’m sorry’ and I looked at him and he punched me and after that, I don’t know what happened,” he told Miami’s Local 10 channel.

He noted that he was terrified to learn that his attacker has a daughter. Puerta added that she fainted during the beating of the man who exceeds her in height and weight and that when she regained consciousness she left the system known as Metromover and called the police.

“I don’t know how I’m alive,” said Puerta, who later met her attacker at the police station where he was being held. The African American has a court hearing on September 25, according to court documents.

Faced with this case, the representative to the Chamber of Colombians abroad, Juan David Vélez, expressed his solidarity and warned that the Consul General of Miami Pedro Valencia is aware of the case and paying full attention.

“Solidarity with Andrea Puerta, a young Colombian victim of violence in the Metro Mover. I contacted the Miami Consul General Pedro Valencia, who is aware of the case and giving all the attention. Colombian victims of this type of case should go to the Consulate “trilled the congressman from the Democratic Center.

Divine! The change of look of Carmen Villalobos that everyone loved

Photo taken from Instagram by Carmen Villalobos.

There are many celebrities who have joined the club to renew their hair and risk looking like never before and more after spending several months in quarantine.

This is the case of the actress Carmen Villalobos, who surprised in his social networks with a change of look, which includes a lighter color in her hair.

The Colombian actress went to the beauty salon and after her stylist applied a variant of the balayage technique, Carmen got a blonde hair.

Wearing a black outfit, the actress proudly showed the results. Users affirm that the image change could be due to the fact that in a few weeks the recordings of the remake of the telenovela “Café con aroma de mujer” will begin, in which the Colombian will participate.

The compliments and compliments were not lacking in both publications by his followers and even claimed to want to have the same hair color.


The discovery of a Colombian that would help to solve a solar enigma – Science – Life

One of the greatest mysteries of contemporary science is called ‘Solar corona heating problem’. And it can be summarized as follows: in the Sun, which is a huge sphere of incandescent gas – in a state called plasma – contrary to what logic would dictate, the temperature increases as we move away from its surface , passing from the photosphere to the solar corona.
(You may be interested: NASA announces that the new solar cycle has already begun)

To understand it better, an analogy can be made between the star king and a fireplace, which is a source of thermal energy. If you move away from the campfire, expect the temperature to decrease the greater the distance from it. The problem is that in the Sun, specifically in its atmosphere, the opposite occurs.

The Sun’s energy source is inside it, at the core, and can reach a temperature of 15 million degrees Celsius.

Image of the different layers that make up the Sun.

Moving away from the nucleus, but still in the solar interior, the temperature decreases until it reaches the solar surface, where its value is on average a little more than 5 thousand degrees Celsius.

So far everything is “normal” and behaves as expected. So the mystery: If we keep moving away from the surface of the Sun, one would expect the temperature to continue to decrease; but no, contrary to this, it begins to increase rapidly until it reaches more than a million degrees Celsius in a layer of the solar atmosphere called the corona.

(Also: What does it mean that the Sun is entering a new cycle?)

This is the famous problem of coronal heating, which, for decades, scientists have tried unsuccessfully to solve. But now an investigation led by a Colombian and published in the renowned magazine Nature might have the answer.

Sun caught by Soho

The study se titula Reconnection nanojets in the solar corona and its author is Patrick
Antolin Tobos.
Born in Senegal, to a Colombian mother and French father, when he was young, Antolin traveled through various countries in Central and South America before entering to study physics and mathematics at the University of Los Andes.

(See also: This is what the new storm on Jupiter seen by Hubble looks like)

At the end of his undergraduate degree, Antolin traveled to the University of Kyoto (Japan) and the University of Oslo (Norway) to do a master’s and doctorate in astrophysics.

For the last 4 years, Antolín, who is now researching from the University of Northumbria (UK), He was given the task of trying to understand the problem of the solar corona from the observations of different space and ground telescopes.

As a result of his research, the scientist has proposed that the warming of the corona is due to a series of small, but numerous, explosions in the star’s atmosphere.

To these explosions, generated by the interactions of the Sun’s magnetic field, he named them nanojets.

According to Antolín, the Sun’s atmosphere is a place with a very low particle density, where atoms travel very far from each other, with almost no chance that they meet to transmit the energy. This density is even lower than what we can create in vacuum laboratories on Earth.

However, the solar magnetic field is very strong and causes the charged particles around it to interact to generate a series of magnetic loops of gas at very high temperatures, which are surely what many people have seen in photographs and videos. that telescopes have captured of the star.

Thanks to his research, Antolin was able to notice the heating mechanism of these loops and, in particular, the transformation of magnetic energy into thermal energy.

“The solar magnetic loops that make up the corona are anchored on the surface of the Sun, which is in constant motion. Resulting in a tangled magnetic cobweb of field lines”, Affirms Antolín.

And continues: “Sometimes, the threads of this web ‘unravel’, dissipating the energy they contain in the form of heat, and moving at high speed, forming flashes of light that we have called nanojets ”, says Antolín.

According to him, nanojets can be up to 500 kilometers wide and 1,500 kilometers long and last up to 10 seconds. In a span of 23 minutes, the scientists were able to identify up to 150 of them in a single heating episode of a solar loop. “

They might seem insignificant events when compared to the enormous size of the Sun. But they are not, because It turns out that each of these nanojets releases the energy equivalent to 2,000 Hiroshima bombs. “If they are the heating mechanism of the entire corona, nanojets would occur millions and millions of times simultaneously in the solar atmosphere,” says the expert.

On the shoulders of giants (human and robotic)

The history of the corona heating problem dates back to 150 years ago, when in a total solar eclipse a green spectral line was observed in the light that comes from the Sun using a technique called astronomical spectroscopy. accounted for the discovery of a supposed new element that did not correspond to any known on Earth, and to which it was called the coronium.

(Also read: ‘Not all Vikings were blond and Scandinavian’)

It took several decades until in 1940 it was discovered that the element responsible for the emission was iron, superheated to such an extent that the temperature in the solar corona should be about 200 times higher than that of the surface of the star.

Since then, according to Antolin, dozens of hypotheses have been proposed trying to answer the coronal enigma, most of them based on two principles that, although they are different, are quite difficult to discern from each other.

It is, on the one hand, the so-called wave model and, on the other, the so-called magnetic reconnection —in which the nanojets proposed by the scientist are framed—, and which was proposed by the American astronomer Eugene Parker.

At 92 years old, Parker is one of the highest authorities in solar research, to the point that he is the only person alive in whose honor NASA has named one of its space missions, la Probe Solar Parker, who is traveling towards the Sun to continue deciphering its mysteries.

According to Antolín, Parker assures in his model that the coronal loops are the “building blocks of the solar corona”, and that these are formed through a tangle of small magnetic reconnection processes between the braided power lines that are released releasing small amounts of heat.

But this had not been observationally proven. In order to do this, Antolin relied on costly analyzes of observations from maximum resolution telescopes capable of obtaining detailed images of the Sun such as the Atmospheric Imaging Assembly, the Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO), the Interface Region Imaging Spectrograph ( Iris) and the Hinode / Solar Optical Telescope (SOT).

We were lucky because we were able to coordinate the observations with these devices to study a region of the corona in the precise place and at the exact moment when a heating episode occurred accompanied by nanojets ”, says Antolin.

In addition to his study in Nature, Antolin published a brief review in ‘Detrás del paper‘, a section of blogs from the same publisher in which the researchers tell how the development of their study was, from its conception to obtaining the results.

In this section, Antolin assures that his research was successful thanks to the fact that he ‘climbed on the shoulders of the giants’, alluding to a famous phrase by Isaac Newton, who referred to new knowledge in science is only possible thanks to the previous contributions of other scientists.

“Only, in this case, those giants were human (Parker) and robotic (the telescopes),” says Antolín.

The next step in this research will be to continue observing the Sun for more nanojets. For this, it will be essential to ‘stand’ again on the shoulders of the next robotic giants that will continue to study the Sun in the coming years, such as the Parker Solar Probe.
