Por que temos o costume de levar flores ao túmulo ?

Flores são motivos de bons sentimentos, onde quer que elas chegam trazem alegria, paz e um bem estar enorme. Quando não se sabe ao certo o que dar de presente à alguém, as flores são sempre uma ótima escolha. Elas complementam aquele presente especial, ou em muita das vezes são o presente principal! É, as flores tem um poder magnifico de se destacarem onde quer que seja, mas você já parou para pensar que também usamos as flores para homenagem aqueles que já se foram ? Aqui no blog já explicamos o significado e a intenção que uma coroa de flores carrega, mas hoje você vai descobrir o por que lavamos flores aos túmulos de nossos familiares e amigos.

Os arqueólogos defendem que os seres humanos decoram as suas sepulturas com flores há quase 14 mil anos. Isto porque foi desenterrada, em Israel, a primeira prova da tradição floral, onde terão sido usadas sálvia, hortelã e outras plantas.

Acreditamos que o principal motivo que levou os antigos povos a levar flores aos túmulos foi a necessidade de disfarçar  o mal cheiro e também afastar possíveis animais que poderiam desenterrar os corpos.

Hoje as flores simbolizam respeito e lembrança as pessoas que já se foram. Muitas pessoas acreditam que cada cor nas flores tem significados específicos. Confira essa lista:

Rosa branca: simboliza a paz.
Crisântemos: representam tanto a vida quanto a morte, assim como o sol e a chuva.
Lírio: ligado à pureza e a brancura, também pode significar o amor eterno.
Gérbera: simboliza a pureza, beleza da vida, assim como o amor e a sensibilidade.

Os cientistas afirmam que as plantas em flor possuem mecanismos que estimulam respostas emocionais e sociais positivas nos seres humanos. O seu uso em eventos sociais, como funerais, pode no passado ter servido também para melhorar a identidade e solidariedade dos grupos.

    The reward points you obtain can be used booking travel tickets and hotel services
    as well as for entertainment purposes. Presently,
    you will find new innovative marketers which have produced
    an affiliate marketer tracking tool that can be added to other plastic card processors like , 2checkout, , and the
    like. But these steps are certainly not whatever you no longer can do as being a home
    based business entrepreneur.

  2. During the Must See Monday on November 14, 2011 we were able to learn about the future of journalism. Eric Newton, who is the Senior Advisor to the President of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, told us that the future of journalism is unknown. He spoke of the beginning and life of journalism throughout all of time, even mentioning the estimate of the very first news story, 1-2 M B.C. He also told us how mass media changed the world, with the beginning of printing books and newspapers. Journalism has gradually changed over the generations, and this is because every eighty years there is a great awakening. This means there are new thoughts and ideas being used to better journalism and media that eventually changes how it was previously done. When he spoke of the future of journalism, he helped us imagine a news story from across the world, in which the story was presented as if you were actually there watching it play out through Nano technology. He gave us several big ideas involving the future of journalism to think about because “we are only scratching the surface of the digital age”.

  3. Tonight’s movie was “The Pelican Brief” which starred Julia Roberts and Denzel Washington. Julia Roberts plays Darby Shaw, who write a brief pinning the murders of two Supreme Court justices on the White House. Gray Grantham, a reporter for the Washington Herald, helps Darby in her search for justice–and for her own safety, since she is constantly under attack. Overall, I really enjoyed this movie because the plot was very interesting and the movie was full of suspense, which I love. I also really liked how the movie started out because I was shocked as to why these justices were being murdered, but as the movie progressed it revealed important details about the case. From a journalistic perspective, I thought this movie showcased top-notch investigative journalism from both Darby and Gray. They never gave up their mission to unveil the truth, even in the midst of eminent danger, and that is what makes a truly successful and determined investigative journalist.

  4. Eric Newton, the senior adviser to the president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, spoke in the Walter Cronkite School’s first amendment forum Monday night on the future and history of news. Newton emphasized in the lecture, what 1676 tells us about 2110, that the technology we are using today seemed crazy at one point but many of the inventions we now use such as Skype, cell phones, and the iPad were seen in movies years ago. He said that every American generation grows up with a different form of media starting in 1767. In 1767 it began with pamphlets and from there media progressed to newspapers, then to daily newspapers because of the printing press, then the telegraph and so on. He also said that history shows every 80 years there is a tragedy or great awakening, for example the civil war was 80 years before WWII and we will be another time of tragedy and experience World War 3.0. He also said that there are already “cyber armies.” According to Newton, media is becoming more personal, portable, and participatory. He also said that the journalism and mass communication field is changing drastically and that print journalism will die. He predicted that in the future there will be intelligent media, bio media (which will include augmented reality), machine awareness, hyper media where data will be imported to our brains, and also Omni media where information will be exported from our brains in the form of things such as telepathy. At the conclusion of these changes he predicted there will be a World War 4.0, he said this is a war in which humans will be fighting against non-humans. At the end of this lecture he said that there are multiple reasons why this wouldn’t happen but reminded the audience that no matter how crazy it seems it is still an option.

  5. The last Must See Monday event of the year was about students that were able to create projects for their digital media entrepreneurship class. I think that the projects were all interesting and creative.The four ideas were Fictionado, CityCircles, WatchTree and Blimee. The four entrepreneurs talked about launching their projects and although none of them has made any money off their ideas yet, they hope to in the future. Fictionado focused on making short stories available for mobile devices. CityCircles provides information to users on the light rail about the surrounding areas. WatchTree was designed to make volunteering in the community easier. Blimee provides news that is relevant to your location via digital signage.This topic was extremely relevant to Cronkite because as journalists we have to constantly be innovating and coming up with new ways to present information to people as the market and the global economy are changing. They talked about the importance of technology and their ideas all focused on making information easily available to users.

  6. As we gathered in the First Amendment Forum we listened to Eric Newton who is the senior advisor to the president of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. His presentation was very interesting; he caught and held my attention throughout the entire time he shared with us Cronkite students. One phrase in particular that caught my interest was, “We’ve only scratched the surface of the digital age.” Newton, in my opinion, is one hundred percent right. If we look back throughout the years and see our progression as a society in technology we can conclude that there is much more room to grow. I see our society moving forward at a sky rocketing rate. Our generation is growing up with technology we can barely remember the times before Facebook and Twitter. Our news sources are coming to us faster than when they did by paper. I can imagine in the near future our technology leaders of tomorrow will have created something unique and wonderful to better serve our community.
