Message for a shared and multiplied grandfather

i am fidel

Automatically translate from Google / Original Post: An emotional message from Fidel’s grandson By Fidel Antonio Castro Smirnov

Message written in the visitors’ book of the Cemetery of Santa Ifigenia, last March 25, by Dr. Fidel Castro Smirnov, professor at the UCI, grandson of the historical leader of the Cuban Revolution.

Dear grandfather:

First of all I want to express to you that this is not a farewell. Together with millions of Cubans, revolutionaries inside and outside Cuba, with your family, as grateful grandson, I will never want to let go the Commander-in-Chief, the father of the Revolution, or the most universal of all Cubans of the 20th century And XXI, neither the guerrilla, nor the close friend, nor the educator, nor the scientist. Nor the creator, nor the companion, nor the undefeated and eternal Fidel, nor my grandfather. You will always be my guide, who inspires me every day and motivates me.

Writing in this book brief ideas, today I fulfill a commitment with the excellent collective of work of Santa Ifigenia, with the companions of the FAR and the battalion of ceremonies. All of them, whom I consider as my family, meet daily with the careful duty to take care of you and pay you well deserved homage. I am very much informed that you continue to be very well cared for and surrounded by love.

Post by @CubanWindow

Today the  sun will be aligned with the east–west streets of the main street grid of Manhattan.

Manhattanhenge is a two-day event that happens twice a year, first in May and then in July. This year the dates and times are:

  • May 29, at 8:13 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time.
  • May 30, at 8:12 p.m. E.D.T.
  • July 12, at 8:20 p.m. E.D.T.
  • July 13, at 8:21 p.m. E.D.T.

Forecasts suggest rain may dampen Manhattanhenge on Monday. The outlook is brighter for Tuesday.

American Museum of Natural History

What will future civilizations think of Manhattan Island when they dig it up and find a carefully laid out network of streets and avenues? Surely the grid would be presumed to have astronomical significance, just as we have found for the prehistoric circle of large vertical rocks known as Stonehenge, in the Salisbury Plain of England. For Stonehenge, the special day is the summer solstice, when the Sun rises in perfect alignment with several of the stones, signaling the change of season Continue to reading HERE

Clouds May Spoil ‘Manhattanhenge’ Return / NY1

Cloudy weather could spoil the fun for a solar phenomenon in the city Monday night. “Manhattanhenge” is when the sunset aligns exactly with Manhattan’s east-west numbered streets. It creates unique photo opportunities, like this one from a couple of years ago. If the sun’s out at all tonight, you’ll be able to see the half of the sun at 8:13 p.m. The sun will then fully align and be visible Tuesday at 8:12 p.m. The term “Manhattanhenge” is a play on Stonehenge, where the sun aligns with the stones on the sunrise of the summer solstice with a similarly dramatic effect.
