1. HOMER ODYSSEY book 2 Telemachus prepares for his voyage


    from HELEN MOUTAFI / Added

    http://records.viu.ca/~johnstoi/homer/odyssey2.htm When the assembly meets the next day, Aegyptius, a wise Ithacan elder, speaks first. He praises Telemachus for stepping into his father’s shoes, noting that this occasion marks the first time that the assembly has been called since Odysseus left. Telemachus then gives an impassioned speech in which he laments the loss of both his father and his father’s home—his mother’s suitors, the sons of Ithaca’s elders, have taken it over. He rebukes them for consuming his father’s oxen and sheep as they pursue their courtship day in and day out when any decent man would simply go to Penelope’s father, Icarius, and ask him for her hand in marriage. Antinous blames the impasse on Penelope, who, he says, seduces every suitor but will commit to none of them. He reminds the suitors of a ruse that she concocted to put off remarrying: Penelope maintained that she would choose a husband as soon as she finished weaving a burial shroud for her elderly father-in-law, Laertes. But each night, she carefully undid the knitting that she had completed during the day, so that the shroud would never be finished. If Penelope can make no decision, Antinous declares, then she should be sent back to Icarius so that he can choose a new husband for her. The dutiful Telemachus refuses to throw his mother out and calls upon the gods to punish the suitors. At that moment, a pair of eagles, locked in combat, appears overhead. The soothsayer Halitherses interprets their struggle as a portent of Odysseus’s imminent return and warns the suitors that they will face a massacre if they don’t leave. The suitors balk at such foolishness, and the meeting ends in deadlock. As Telemachus is preparing for his trip to Pylos and Sparta, Athena visits him again, this time disguised as Mentor, another old friend of Odysseus. She encourages him and predicts that his journey will be fruitful. She then sets out to town and, assuming the disguise of Telemachus himself, collects a loyal crew to man his ship. Telemachus himself tells none of the household servants of his trip for fear that his departure will upset his mother. He tells only Eurycleia, his wise and aged nurse. She pleads with him not to take to the open sea as his father did, but he puts her fears to rest by saying that he knows that a god is at his side.

        6/16/10 --- James Joyce's epic, groundbreaking novel "Ulysses" takes place entirely on June 16, 1904, and follows Leopold Bloom, who walks the streets of Dublin while his wife entertains a lover. A celebration of both Ulysses and Joyce, the Hammer's Bloomsday appeals to the Joyce scholar and novice alike, with dramatic readings by actors, Irish songs, and Guinness Happy Hour.

                An excerpt from a short film describing the Ulysses solar probe prior to launch. The exact date of this film is unknown it cannot be any older than May of 1986, which the film says is the projected launch date. However, after the Challenger explosion on January 28, 1986, the launch was delayed until October 6, 1990. In this excerpt, the narrator states that Ulysses will be launched by Challenger-Centaur. As a result of the Challenger accident, NASA cancelled the Shuttle Centaur (aka Centaur G) as one of many measures designed to reduce risk on future shuttle missions. The entire film, "ULYSSES: A Voyage to the Sun" will be available in this portfolio.
