Asteroidea – Sea Star

Photograph: MCaviglia (2005)

“Beyond their distinctive shape, sea stars are famous for their ability to regenerate limbs, and in some cases, entire bodies. They accomplish this by housing most or all of their vital organs in their arms. Some require the central body to be intact to regenerate, but a few species can grow an entirely new sea star just from a portion of a severed limb.

National Geographic (2018)

El Rincón de lo Bello

Welcome to our section in Spanish, dedicated to all that is beautiful. In this Issue, we are delighted to share with our readers La Voz a Ti Debida – (Versos 388 a 424) by Spanish poet Pedro Salinas.

 

(Versos 388 a 424)

Yo no necesito tiempo 
para saber cómo eres: 
conocerse es el relámpago. 
¿Quién te va a ti a conocer 
en lo que callas, o en esas 
palabras con que lo callas? 
El que te busque en la vida 
que estás viviendo, no sabe 
mas que alusiones de ti, 
pretextos donde te escondes. 
Ir siguiéndote hacia atrás 
en lo que tú has hecho, antes, 
sumar acción con sonrisa, 
años con nombres, será 
ir perdiéndote. Yo no. 
Te conocí en la tormenta. 
Te conocí, repentina, 
en ese desgarramiento 
brutal de tiniebla y luz, 
donde se revela el fondo 
que escapa al día y la noche. 
Te vi, me has visto, y ahora, 
desnuda ya del equívoco, 
de la historia, del pasado, 
tú, amazona en la centella, 
palpitante de recién 
llegada sin esperarte, 
eres tan antigua mía, 
te conozco tan de tiempo, 
que en tu amor cierro los ojos, 
y camino sin errar, 
a ciegas, sin pedir nada 
a esa luz lenta y segura 
con que se conocen letras 
y formas y se echan cuentas 
y se cree que se ve 
quién eres tú, mi invisible.

Pedro Salinas (1933)

Welcome to our section in Spanish, dedicated to all that is beautiful. In this Issue, we are delighted to share with our readers Al Olor de Nuestro Incienso by Spanish band La Caja de Pandora.

Al Olor de Nuestro Incienso

AyDe la distancia que separa tus caricias de mis besos
AyDel firmamento que pintara si estuvieras en mi lienzo
Como arena en un desiertoen mi cabeza es tu recuerdo
Como barca mar adentroasí me encuentroasí me encuentro.

AyDe estar contigo sonriendo a soportar este silencio
AyDe esos suspiros al fundirse tu sonrisa en mis “te quieros
Si pudiera echar el ancla a esta lluvia de recuerdos
Y tenerte aquí tan cercaal olor de nuestro incienso.

Al olor de aquel incienso que quemamos una vez con el fuego de mil besos,
al sabor de unas caricias que pintamos en la piel y ahora bañan mi recuerdo
Te imagino tan desnuda como la primera vez que en mis manos vi tu cuerpo,
y ahora vuelvo a preguntarme si podremossi podremos  y yo juntos otra vez

Darle fuego a nuestro inciensodarle puerta a este silencio
Ver tu risa en el espejoy tu carmín pintado en beso.

AyCuantas mañanas he soñado con soñar que estoy durmiendo
AyDe atardeceres a la orilla del remanso de esos sueños
Como un náufrago amarrado en la esperanza del recuerdo
Como quien llora sus manos en un mar de luto negro

Al olor de aquel incienso que quemamos una vez con el fuego de mil besos,
al sabor de unas caricias que pintamos en la piel y ahora bañan mi recuerdo
Te imagino tan desnuda como la primera vez que en mis manos vi tu cuerpo,
y ahora vuelvo a preguntarme si podremossi podremos  y yo juntos otra vez

Darle fuego a nuestro inciensodarle puerta a este silencio
Ver tu risa en el espejoy tu carmín pintado en beso.

“The weedy sea dragon, also called the common sea dragon, inhabits the waters off south and east Australia. As with sea horses, sea dragon males are responsible for childbearing.The eggs are fertilised during the transfer from the female to the male. The males incubate the eggs and carry them to term, releasing miniature sea dragons into the water after about four to six weeks.”

The Challenge of Learning Englishes for Refugee Professionals

Dr. Gabriel John Roberts

Email: gjroberts@cardiffmet.ac.uk

 

 

This week the BBC ran this article  on a subject that is very close to my heart: the language training of refugee healthcare professionals.

The article covers the variety of English that refugee doctors have to learn. This includes not only formal academic English for the IELTS exam and medical English for their profession, but also dialectical English in locales where they will be working.

This presents an enormous challenge for refugee doctors and learning to cope with the flexibility of language in three discrete registers can take up valuable time that arguably could be better spent keeping up with developments in their specialist area.

There is no magic wand here, but if we consider the adjustment to different styles of English that is required, an adjustment which is necessary because other L1 English speaking patients are not asked to make, then we must again recognise the Sysephean task that refugee doctors are confronted with.

Training refugee costs 1/10 of the cost of training doctors in the U.K. yet we confront them with barriers such as an English test on unconnected global topics with ever increasing requirements for doctors and other healthcare professionals, followed by two Professional Linguistic Assessment Board (PLAB) tests. Perhaps a combined test of language and professional knowledge with combined training would support refugee doctors, the NHS and patients more efficiently and effectively.

El Rincón de lo Bello

Welcome to our section in Spanish, dedicated to all that is beautiful. In this Issue, we are delighted to share with our readers Octubre by Spanish poet Juan Ramón Jiménez.

 

Octubre

Estaba echado yo en la tierraenfrente

del infinito campo de Castilla

que el otoño envolvía en la amarilla

dulzura de su claro sol poniente.

Lentoel aradoparalelamente

abría el haza oscuray la secilla

mano abierta dejaba la semilla

en su entraña partida honradamente.

Pensé arrancarme el corazóny echarlo,

pleno de su sentir alto y profundo

al ancho surco del terruño tierno

a ver si con romperlo y con sembrarlo,

la primavera le mostraba al mundo

el árbol puro del amor eterno.

Juan Ramón Jiménez.
