The London Group » Blog Archive » Let’s Turn This Idea Into Redevelopment Reality

London Sometimes such a great idea is foisted upon us that one feels terrible that you didn’t think of it first. The Idea District is imaginative nomenclature for an 80-block area of downtown San Diego’s East Village roughly bounded by City College to the north, Market Street to the south, 11th Avenue to the west and Interstate 5 to the east.

This area so far has not especially benefited from the largess of downtown redevelopment momentum. The brainchild of developers David Malmuth and Pete Garcia, the concept is to create a cluster of “idea” firms and educators such that through their physical proximity will sprout investment, urban revitalization and jobs. Idea jobs cross a variety of sectors that “come together in a confluence of enterprises which lift them all,” muses Malmuth, who brings big quals to his self-imposed assignment. Creative Force Design melds the real and virtual world. This is about jobs, says Garcia, “first and foremost.” Yet, there are key differences. "Knowledge For The Future" by The Future: innovation & Knowledge-creation Luis Frausto.

INNOVATION means an amalgamation of human consciousness and knowledge with socio-economic activity, linking all efforts with individuals, organizations, universities and institutions engaged in research and social development.

"Knowledge For The Future" by The Future: innovation & Knowledge-creation Luis Frausto

CONSCIOUSNESS is the universal foundation of knowledge, which represents the basic cognitive element that human beings, organizations and institutions tap into in order to position themselves within the scope and influence of global value chains. Economic activity and global human behavior have both long turned their back on their basic and genetic roots. This has been the fruit and consequence of paradigmatic egoism that permanently victimize the human mind, and promote it around consumerism, competition for profit, status quo and material possession accumulation. Although the concept of knowledge is often handled today, little it is recognized as the only permanent source of competitive advantage.

Wagner's Ring. Rheingold Libretto, full text (English) by Das Rheingold on Myspace. Libretto: Wagner's Ring. Richard Wagner's with translation by Frederick Jameson In the years I've spent as a regular participant in the newsgroup, I've seen numerous requests for opera librettos in English translation.

Libretto: Wagner's Ring

Most (but not all) librettos are available on the Web in the original language, but for a variety of reasons English translations are rarely offered. The request I see most often is for Wagner's Ring operas. This seems a bit odd to me, since these are surely the operas for which a translation is most readily available in the non-cyber world. With that in mind, I've prepared the four librettos which I offer here. The librettos are offered as shareware (about shareware).

NOTE: All files are password-protected. All librettos are offered as PDF files, a format which can be read with Adobe's Acrobat software. Der Ring des Nibelungen. Das Rheingold. Das Rheingold ( pronunciation ; The Rhine Gold) is the first of the four operas that constitute Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen ('The Ring of the Nibelung').

Das Rheingold

It was originally written as an introduction to the tripartite Ring, but the cycle is now generally regarded as consisting of four individual operas. Composition history[edit] First performance in Bayreuth, 1876 Although Das Rheingold comes first in the sequence of Ring operas, it was the last to be conceived. He started work on the prelude producing a three paragraph prose sketch that month, although he remained uncertain of the name, considering in turn Der Raub: Vorspiel (The Theft: Prelude), Der Raub des Rheingoldes (The Theft of the Rhinegold) and Das Rheingold (Vorspiel) (The Rhinegold (Prelude)). During the early years of the 1850s Wagner produced some musical sketches for parts of the Ring and noted down various motifs that were to be used in the work.
