A great man is one who collects knowledge the way a bee collects honey and uses it to help people overcome the difficulties they endure - hunger, ignorance and disease!
- Nikola Tesla

Remember, remember always, that all of us, and you and I especially, are descended from immigrants and revolutionists.

While their territory has been devastated and their homes despoiled, the spirit of the Serbian people has not been broken.

Биста песника и дипломате постављена је у Рокфелер парку у Кливленду у знак сећања на његове бесмртне стихове, али и на његову мисију у САД, где је провео последње године живота.

На плацу број 32 у Рокфелер парку у Кливленду (Охајо) међу бистама 10 српских великана у Српској културној башти, у чијем се средишту налази бронзана икона Светог Саве, недавно је откривена биста још једног знаменитог Србина који је оставио значајан траг како у матици, тако и у животу српске дијаспоре – песника и дипломате Јована Дучића.

Национални Дан науке установљен на дан рођења Николе Тесле биће данас симболично обележен широм Србије, а захваљујући бројним поштоваоцима лика и дела једног од највећих светских умова и проналазача овај датум ће бити обележен и у Сједињеним Државама, Канади и Африци.

Музеј Николе Тесле, који ове године навршава седам деценија постојања, како је за Танјуг најавила директорка музеја Ивона Јевтић, традиционално ће и овог 10. јула бесплатно отворити врата за све посетиоце.

У Холивуду је, у оквиру фестивала „Dances With Films”, одржана светска премијера документарног филма Немање Станковића „My Friend Tommy”. Поменути фестивал је специјализован за проналажење нових талената у филмској индустрији и већ 25 година одржава се у легендарном Кинеском театру.

Филм Немање Станковића говори о четрдесетогодишњаку Томију Лију, који је невин и никада раније није имао контакт са женама. Живео је у хришћанској корејској породици под условима сличним полицијским часу, и тако практично остао без пунолетства.

New York City, April 5, 2022

After all… Dostoevsky belongs in New York!

CATALOGUE (PDF)

The Sheen Center for Thought and Culture in New York City is hosting an exhibit titled “Saved by Beauty: Dostoevsky in New York”. It is a visiual tribute to the 200th anniversary of the birth of Fyodor Dostoevsky (1821-2021) and will last March 18 – April 30, 2022.

Having toured Greece and making its New York premiere at The Sheen Center, this exhibit spans two floors and gives visual expression to characters and existential and moral themes from the novels of Fyodor Dostoevsky through a variety of painting styles by 15 artists. Exhibit is featured at the New, Janet Hennessey Dilenschneider Gallery, and it is presented in collaboration with the Greek Orthodox Archdicese of America and St. Sebastian Press of the Western American Diocese, Serbian Orthodox Church.

These beautiful paintings are now welcome in New York, a city that exemplifies in many ways the extreme contradictions and creative struggles that Dostoevsky successfully described in his writings.

U vremenu kad se i umetnički svet na Zapadu zbog ratnih sukoba u Ukrajini vraća na modele ponašanja koji su prethodili opštoj tragediji Drugog svetskog rata, u Njujorku je otvorena izložba likovnih dela ispirisana životom i književnošću jednog najvećih ruskih i svetskih pisca Fjodora Mihajloviča Dostojevskog.

Reč je o radovima neformalne grupe slikara „Ohra“ i više savremenih grčkih umetnika, čija je postavka svoj izložbeni život počela prošlog septembra u Atini pod nazivom „San smešnog čoveka“, čime se Grčka priključila obeležavanju 200-godišnjice rođenja velikog klasika ruske i svetske književnosti.

Domaćin izložbe „Lepota spasava – Dostojevski u Njujorku“ je galerija Umetničkog Šin centra Njujorške nadbiskupije.

„Čovek može da živi bez nauke, može da živi bez hleba, ali bez lepote više ne može da živi”, citiraju u ovoj njujorškoj galeriji Dostojevskog povodom izložbe koja će trajati do 30. aprila.

We were all saddened to hear of the passing of iconic Rock singer Meat Loaf aged 74. With all the huge sustained musical success over the decades, it’s hard to imagine now how back in the 1970s no one was interested in the rock theatrical music of composer Jim Steinman and Meat Loaf.

The record labels they approached literally laughed at them – by 1976/77 people were dancing to disco and some were pogoing to punk rock.

Conventional wisdom said there was no market for a 350 lb guy singing epic eight-minute long Wagnerian-style rock anthems.

It took an unconventional, determined, dedicated Cleveland record executive, Steve Popovich to go with his instinct he had honed over 15 years to prove them all wrong and put Meat Loaf on the Musical Map of the World.

Arista records had laughed so hard at their audition, the executives even insulted composer Jim Steinman saying he should go out and buy real rock ‘n’ roll records so he could learn to write proper songs.

Tesla memorijalno društvo iz Njujorka saopštilo je da je preminuo dr Ljubomir Vujović, autor brojnih članaka posvećenih Tesli, koji učestvovao je i u mnogim TV, radio i novinskim intervjuima koji su imali za temu Teslin rad, ali i srpsku kulturu

The Hagia Sophia

The Mystical Light of the Great Church and its Architectural Dress

by Charalambos P. Stathakis

Dear reader, as you run like the rest of us along the dizzy main road, stop, stay aside for a while. Let the others be dizzy, and take the secret underground trail, which will lead you through the dewdrops of the leaves, the crystal smile of the sun, the city’s underground galler- ies, your knowledge, and your feelings, to the doorstep of the Hagia Sophia. Because all dew- drops, all sunrays, and all beauty lead there. That is what you will be told by my friend, the author, whom I am fond of and whom I send you to, Charalambos Stathakis: the doctor, the warm and humane researcher, the scientist devoted to his work and his patients, who has given a series of scientific papers, who, nevertheless, retains a nest of beauty untouched in his heart, which makes him outstanding—even though he is not a specialist in architecture, nor a historian, nor a theologian, nor a Byzantinist—it makes him stand out in all these together and in entirety.
