Josemaría Escrivá: Cesta

Už ma nebavilo čítať knihy na skúšku tak som sa v pracovni môjho uja začal prehrabovať v knižnici (túto činnosť robím dosť často, má veľmi dobrý výber kníh).

Našiel som malú útlu knižku. Už z prvého pohľadu mi bolo jasné, že ide o kresťanskú literatúru. A taká ma celkom teraz zaujíma a začal som čítať. Autorom Cesty je zakladateľ Opus Dei - Josemaría Escrivá.

V knižke je 999 zamyslení na rôzne témy zo života - práca, viera, láska, ... Vlastne to nie sú až také zamyslenia, ale skôr dokonca provokujúce rady a podnety na zamyslenie. Občas som mal pocit, že niektoré boli až veľmi prísne. A neviem prečo, ale celá knižka bola ladená skôr pre mužov, niekedy som mal pocit, že pre kňazov.

Niektoré zamyslenia sa mi veľmi páčili a dostal som inšpiráciu, iné sa mi zdali na môj vkus príliš nábožensky fundamentálne - to neznamená zlé, ale ja som im nerozumel. Kniha sa mi páčila v tom ohľade, že robila človeka malým a učila byť pokorným a zároveň mu chcela pritom dodať odvahy, sily a chuť žiť. Nie som si celkom istý ako to všetko má do seba zapadať, no páčilo sa mi to. Napadlo ma, či by som v nej nenašiel dva protichodné body, aj keď neviem či by to malo zmysel, pretože táto téma nie je racionálna a vysvetliť by sa to dalo všelijako.

First Hawaii, then Oregon

Why? Hawaii - the international conference on MR (ISMRM) happened to be in Honolulu in 2017. Oregon - to counterbalance volcanic islands with sunny beaches and volcanic mountain with snow.

Part One: No Glamping in Hawaiian Islands

Island One: Kauai



After comfy 24-hour economy flights with Eva and Fabian, and just as I started to watch Moana, we landed in Lihue (Kauai). I assembled with Pedro, we took a rental car and quickly found our room in cosy Kauai Palms Hotel. For lunch next day we met Andrea in Kapaa and together we headed to see Wailua Falls, not far from Lihue. We left Andrea in Kapaa later that day and for our next night we were going to camp at Koke'e State Park Campground (thanks Evka for help with fixing my tent!). The night was very cold, roosters were loud and views from Kalalau Lookout were astonishing! It was time to warm up and see some beach so we decided to get a nice cup of coffee and visit a beach with restricted access for rental cars - Barking Sands Beach in 

Yamaha S08 - sticky keys repair

My keyboard Yamaha S08 suffered from several "sticky keys" disease already a year, perhaps more. That saying, I am pretty bad piano player. However, I like to have my devices fully functional for any cases.
I have found a very helpful guide, but with no photos. I made some for better visualization of the repair.
First, I unfastened all screws from both sides:

Second, I unfastened all screws from a wooden base plate which were holding the part with electronics.


Then I unfastened the golden screws holding the whole keyboard to the wood. The keyboard was now accessible from both sides.

The last step is described in the following video. It was just removing the sticky keys and reinserting them without a metal spring coming inside. The end of the metal spring has been left outside of the key:


So far it works well!

Inspiring music in Casey Neistat's vlogs

After watching a few vlogs by Casey Neistat on Youtube, I couldn't help notice the well-chosen music in the background. Particularly music by one artist named Julian Avila. Here is his music: https://soundcloud.com/julian_avila
Inspired, I took several months old videos I shot on GoPro Hero 2 when I was biking to Kahlenberg in the rain. After a few hours and two whiskeys, this came from my computer:
