Biography[edit]
Geraldes was born in 1957 and went to the African country of Angola when he was about 3 years of age. He spent most of his childhood and adolescent years there but in 1975 he had to flee the country as a refugee due to the terrifying civil war. His long stay in Angola seems to have affected his style of art and he did indeed start painting when he was a boy.
He migrated to Australia in 1985. He became an Australian citizen in 1987 and has taught art and design at Footscray Institute of TAFE from 1988 to 1990 and at RMIT (Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology) from 1991 to 1995. From 1995, he was a lecturer at the Central Gippsland Institute Art Department.
He now paints full-time and regularly travels between Europe and Australia. His paintings have been selling throughout the world and auctions houses, particularly at Christie’s Art Auctions in London.
Oil on canvas[edit]
Geraldes is more famous for his oil painting. His style has dramatically changed over the years and we can see how Australian art has influenced his style.
His early interest in western and eastern esotericism and spirituality can also be seen as a prime factor in his subject matter, painting geometric patterns involving cosmic imagery and symbolism of universal significance. In some of his works the use of the chakra colors can be seen as well as a diagrammatic language of cosmic journeys.. In his book, Visions of the Esoteric Power, he asserts his belief that “art, science, and the spiritual do not exist in isolation”.
He is exploring the 3rd dimension of human beings in relation to the spirit

Robe de style

A robe de style wedding dress, 1922. A sketch for a pannier to wear underneath is in the lower right-hand corner.

The robe de style describes a style of dress popular in the 1920s as an alternative to the straight-cut chemise dress.
The style was characterised by its full skirts. The bodice could be fitted, or straight-cut in the chemise manner, with a dropped waist, but it was the full skirt that denoted the robe de style. Sometimes the fullness was supported with petticoats, panniers, or hoops.
The robe de style was a signature design of the couturier Jeanne Lanvin.[1] Other couture houses known for their versions of the robe de style included Boué Soeurs, Callot Soeurs, and Lucile.[2]

Enric Miralles Moya (12 February 1955 – 3 July 2000) was a Spanish architect. He graduated from the Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB) at the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (UPC) in 1978. After establishing his reputation with a number of collaborations with his first wife Carme Pinós, the couple separated in 1991. He later married fellow architect Benedetta Tagliabue, and the two practiced together as EMBT Architects. Miralles’ magnum opus and his largest project, the new Scottish Parliament Building, was unfinished at the time of his death.

Life[edit]
In 1978, he completed his examinations at the Escola Tècnica Superior d’Arquitectura (ETSAB) in Barcelona. From 1973 to 1978 he worked in the architect’s office of Albert Viaplana and Helio Piñón.[1] Whilst there—among other things—he was involved in the construction of the Plaça dels Països Catalans, the forecourt for the Estació de Sants. In 1984 after several architectural competition awards, he formed his own office in Barcelona with his first wife Carme Pinós, which they led together until 1991. Within the rising Spanish architecture scene of the late 1980s following the death of Francisco Franco, their unusual buildings attracted international attention. As a result, they received numerous commissions from Spain and overseas. After their separation, Miralles and Pinós continued to work in separate offices.
In 1993 Enric Miralles formed a new practice with his second wife, the Italian architect Benedetta Tagliabue, under the name “EMBT Architects”. She resumed the practice under his name after his death. The most important projects; the Scottish Parliament Building in Edinburgh and the multistoried bui

Serve the People

For the Norwegian communist political organization, see Serve the People (Norway).

The slogan displayed at Sun Yat-sen University.

“Serve the People” or “Service for the People” (Chinese: 为人民服务; pinyin: wèi rénmín fúwù) is a political slogan which first appeared in Mao-era China. It originates from the title of a speech by Mao Zedong, delivered on September 8, 1944. The slogan was also widely used in the United States by students and youth during the Asian American movement of the late 1960s and 1970s.[citation needed] The slogan was very popular due to the strong Maoist influence on the New Left, considerably amongst the Red Guard Party, the Black Panther Party, and the Yellow Brotherhood of West Los Angeles.[citation needed]

Origins[edit]
Mao Zedong wrote this speech to commemorate the death of a PLA Soldier, Zhang Side, a participant in the Long March who died in the collapse of a kiln. In the speech he quoted a phrase written by the famous Han Dynasty historian Sima Qian, “Though death befalls all men alike, it may be heavy as Mount Tai or light as a feather.” (“人固有一死,或重于泰山,或轻于鸿毛。”). Mao continued: “To die for the people is weightier than Mount Tai, but to work for the fascists and die for the exploiters and oppressors is lighter than a feather. Comrade Zhang Side died for the people, and his death is indeed weightier than Mount Tai.”
The concept of “Serving the People”, together with other slogans such as “Never benefit oneself, always benefit others” and “Tireless struggle” became core principles of the Communist Party of China
Role during the Cultural Revolution[edit]
During the Cultural Revolution, the speech was widely read. Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai was frequently seen wearing a pin emblazoned with the slogan “Serve the People” next to a portrait of Mao Zedong.
Roles in modern society[edit]
Ceremonial role[edit]
Although less often used in China today, the phrase still plays some important ceremonial roles. It is inscribed on the screen wall facing the front entrance of the Zhongnanhai compound, which houses the headquarters of the Central People’s Government and the Communist Party of China.
During inspection of troops in the People’s Liberation Army, the following ceremonial exchange is carried out:

Gail Dubinbaum

Gail Dubinbaum (born 1957) is an American operatic coloratura mezzo-soprano and co-founder and Creative Director of the Phoenix Metropolitan Opera.
Career[edit]
A native of Phoenix, Arizona,[1] Dubinbaum first studied with her mother, Ruth Dubinbaum, and then with operatic mezzo-soprano Herta Glaz. She also had a close association with Elisabeth Schwarzkopf.[2]
As befits a background so balanced between operatic and concert singing, Dubinbaum has been equally at home on the opera stage and concert platform since winning the Western Region Metropolitan Opera National Auditions in 1981.[3] Her operatic career, with a focus on works by Rossini and Mozart, has included appearances in productions at various major houses across the United States, ranging from the Metropolitan and Boston Lyric opera companies on the East Coast to the Portland Opera on the West, with appearances in Texas, Michigan, and Arizona in between. Internationally, she has sung with major companies in Israel, Austria, and Canada.[4] Her concert appearances have ranged equally widely: in addition to performances at several US music festivals, she has performed with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and New York Philharmonic, the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Cleveland Orchestra, and the Israel Philharmonic. Conductors with whom she has worked include the likes of Kurt Masur, Michael Tilson Thomas, Carlo Maria Giulini, and Leonard Bernstein;[2] James Levine presided over her appearances on television in the popular series In Performance at the White House and Live from the Met and in the Met Centennial Gala.[5] In 2007, Dubinbaum and her husband, conductor John Massaro, founded the Phoenix Metropolitan Opera, of which she is Creative Director. The company began with a single production of Puccini’s La Boheme but planned to expand to two productions for the 2008-2009 season.[6] The company also planned educational programs for children and young singers.[1] Besides her involvement with the Phoenix company, Dubinbaum maintains a private studio at which she teaches voice in Phoenix.[2]
