All the nine islands of the Azores Archipelago are of volcanic origin with the island of Flores marking the westernmost border of the European continent. 244,780 people live in the 2,325 sq. of this island territory, which is part of the Portuguese state and constitutes the Autonomous Region of the Azores. The islands of the archipelago are divided in three geographical groups: the Eastern Group, comprising Santa Maria and São Miguel, the Central Group, including Terceira, Graciosa, São Jorge, Pico and Faial, and the Western Group, composed by Corvo and Flores. The Azores, along with the archipelagos of Madeira, Canary Islands and Cape Verde, constitute the biogeographic region of Macaronesia, a name which means "fortunate islands". NINE ISLANDS SCULPTURED BY NATURE LYING IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN Brought together in an archipelago, each Azorean island has its own identity. Even if they all share an extraordinary natural legacy, they also have their own landscape, traditions, cuisine and architecture. They have been sculptured by ancient volcanoes and populated over the centuries by courageous and kind people. Thus the Azores are a place of varied experiences and emotions. CLIMATE The climate of the Azores is mild. During the winter, strong winds stir the sea and purify the air. The average temperature remains at a generous 14º C, which does not prevent snow from falling on the summit of the mountain of Pico, given its altitude (2,350m). The rainy periods, although frequent, are generally short. The summer is warm and sunny, with temperatures staying around 24º C. The sea water remains at an inviting temperature, between 17º C and 23º C. HISTORY In the realm of legend, some associate the Azores to the Atlantis, the mythical island kingdom quoted by Plato. As for history, references to nine islands in the Atlantic Ocean located approximately in the position of the Azores can be found in books and maps since the 14th century. However, it was the Portuguese Maritime Discoveries, led by Prince Infante D. Henrique, that the Azores were definitely registered in the map of Europe. It is unknown whether the first navigator to reach the archipelago was Diogo de Silves in 1427 or Gonçalo Velho Cabral in 1431. The origin of the name Azores is also debatable as there are various theories. The most common associates the designation of the common buzzards found on the islands which were mistaken as being another bird of prey: the northern goshawk (açor). What is now certain is that it was Prince Infante D. Henrique who instigated the settlement of the islands. First, animals were sent, between 1431 and 1432, and later settlers started to arrive from 1439. From that date, the settlement continued throughout the 15th century (Western and Central Groups) and the 16th century (Western Group). Jews, Moors, Flemish, Genovese, Englishmen, Frenchmen, and African slaves came together with the Portuguese from the mainland to face the hardships of such a task. This epic start moulded a people that throughout the centuries was able to resist volcanic eruptions, isolation, invasions of pirates, political wars and infesting diseases. The courage of the Azorean people was confirmed when they resisted the Spanish domination during the succession crisis of 1580, and when they supported the liberal movement during the civil war (1828-1834). During the 20th century, this bravery was once again evident during the whale hunting era, when the men would go to sea in small, wooden boats ready to confront, in the endless blue sea, giant sperm whales.

The Eagle's Last Flight is not a typical Cold War book, which is why it is eminently suited for today's readers. It is an uncomplicated book---good books usually are---that describes military life during the Cold War in an everyday, gut level fashion that readers can easily relate to. The story line is also uncomplicated. Modest in size (less than 400 pages), it chronicles the life of Skip O'Neill, an ordinary man destined to live an extraordinary life during the period 1954 to 1981. Skip was an Air Force fighter pilot; although not the kind possessed with unbelievable bravery, infallible judgment, and impossible skills so typical of fictional fighter pilots. His was a real life, with real troubles, real victories, and real conflicts. Yet, like the character in Forrest Gump, he managed to be on the stage each time the American military was challenged during the Cold War. Although The Eagle's Last Flight has the look and feel of an autobiography, it is in fact, a work of fiction. But, being a fictional character is Skip O'Neill a credible witness to such a dramatic period of our history? To quote Mark Berent, author of the Rolling Thunder series of books about the Vietnam War,Skip O'Neill flew with the Lafayette Escadrille, he flew fighters in the European Theater of Operations, and the Pacific in WWII and, he flew fighters in all the conflicts since Vietnam as well. For Skip O'Neill's story is the story of all fighter pilot warriors. Anyone who flew in any war can relate to many episodes in this book and certainly the characters. Or as CNN military analyst and author, Major General Don Shepherd, USAF (Ret.) put it, “This is one of the best books about flying fighters, life in the military, war and the humans who do it, all with the best of characters shrouded in history, mixed with realism, sex, joy, tragedy, sadness, mystery. I could feel the Gs, taste the martinis and smell the perfume. I felt like I knew the characters, or someone just like them, and saw every fighter pilot in 'Skip' and every fighter pilot's wife in 'Christy'. Feel the Gs, taste the martinis and smell the perfume---valuable insights into one of the more tumultuous periods in our history by someone who has been there, done that---tantalizing clues about what may lie ahead if the Cold war returns---all in one book.

BY MICHAEL COLLINS What’s behind Lady Gaga’s poker face? A charitable outlook. Wednesday, the 25-year-old superstar unveiled her long-awaited “Born This Way Foundation” at Harvard University — and live-streamed the event, where she answered spiritual leader Deepak Chopra’s question about how to change the world for the better. “I believe that if each one of us just transformed one small bit of ourselves to be a bit kinder, a bit more loving, a bit more tolerant of even the most miniscule thing.” The “Bad Romance” singer was joined by several other high-profile celebrities and philanthropists, including Oprah Winfrey. “According to Lady Gaga, it is a passion project, which she hopes will establish a standard of bravery and kindness, as well as create a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others.” The Chronicle of Philanthropy reports Gaga’s motives behind the foundation are a no-brainer. “She has talked openly about feeling ‘like a freak’ as a teenager, and her songs—particularly ‘Born This Way,’ the title track of her 2011 album—are sometimes appeals for tolerance, social acceptance, and courage.” The foundation, which was co-founded by Gaga’s own mother monster, Cynthia Germanotta, will utilize digital media and social networking as one of several means for positive social change. According to MTV ... “She met with President Obama at a fundraiser in September to talk about the bullying epidemic, after she was touched in particular by the suicide of bullied 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer.” Rodemeyer Tweeted “ladygaga bye mother monster, thank you for all you have done, paws up forever”, before he took his own life on September 18, 2011.

"Since ancient times, stories of epic battles and mystical legends have been passed through the generations across the rugged and mysterious Highlands of Scotland. In Brave, a new tale joins the lore when the courageous Merida (Kelly Macdonald) confronts tradition, destiny and the fiercest of beasts. Merida is a skilled archer and impetuous daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson). Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord MacIntosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane). Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric old Wise Woman (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to discover the meaning of true bravery in order to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late."

The Battle of Gettysburg is a moving, original account of the great climactic confrontation -- the War Between the States. Unique in its perspective, this program tells the story from a distinct Southern viewpoint, through the eyes of General Robert E. Lee -- Commander of the Confederate Army, and General George E. Pickett -- leader of the doomed assault on the Union's Army of the Potomac. The Battle of Gettysburg is a thought-provoking depiction of honor, bravery and personal tragedy that forever changed the course of American history.
