We might say that communication consists of transmitting information from one person to another. In fact, many scholars of communication take this as a working definition, and use Lasswell's maxim, "who says what to whom in what channel with what effect," as a means of circumscribing the field of communication theory....


So Sorry for the breech in communication, I will return to my normal scheduled program!

Song: The Update


I Can Hear The Trumpets Blowing Screaming Out The End Of Time

Look Around And Listen And You'll See Every Sign

The Waters Are Polluted As The Forests Are Cut Down

Bombing And Drilling Deep Below Ground

Check The Prophecies From Around The World

And Look Around Now As It All Unfurls

Look Into Yourself And See What Goes On

Get A Feeling In Your Heart Of The Right From Wrong

Because The Mother Earth Needs To Be Respected

Been Far From Too Long That She's Been Neglected

Race Against Race, Such A Foolish Waste

It's Like Cutting Off Your Nose To Spit Your Face

And At The End Of The Wars, What Was The Cost

It's Clear That The Earth Was The One Who Lost

We Are One With Her As She Is One With Us

It's Unreal How She Is Treated So Unjust

As Our Planet Grows Smaller Each And Every Day

Everyone Affecting Everyone In Every Way

We're All Citizens Of The Worl Community

All Here Together And We're Searching For Unity

Over The Years, I've Grown And Changed So Much

Things I Know Now Years Ago, I Couldn't Touch

There Are Things I've Done That I Wouldn't Do Again

But I'm Glad That I Did 'Cause I've Learned From Them

I Just Try To Stay Present Right Here, Right Now

No Worries, No Fears And Without Any Doubts

It's About Time


'Cause In These Times, These Changing Times

A Transition Is Occuring And I Am Not Blind

As The Pendlum Swings A New Age We Enter

And With Every Swing, It Draws Closer To The Center

Yes The Storm Before The Calm And The Wars That Lead To Love

Things Must Run Their Course So We Push And We Shove

But We're Here To Work It Out In One Way Or Another

To Find A Mutual Respect For Ourselves And One Another

And The True Key Is A Trust In Self

For When I Trust Myself, I Fear No One Else

I Took Control Of My Life, Just As Anyone Can

I Want Everyone To See It's In The Palm Of Your Hand

The Past Is Gone, The Future Yet Unborn

But Right Here And Now Is Where It All Goes On

I Know We Can Fix It And It's Not Too Late

I Give Respect To King And His Nonviolent Ways

I Dream And I Hope And I Won't Forget

Someday I'm Going To Visit On A Free Tibet

Someday I'm Going To See Us All Joined As One

And It Would Be Too Bad To Blow It Up Before We're Done

'Cause We Long Behind The Rage Learning From The Pain

The Love Behind The Tension Like The Sun Behind The Rain

I'm Sending Loving Light To All That Is

To All Creation And The Life We Live

I'm Not Preaching Bull Shit, Just Speaking My Mind

'Cause I'm Here Now And It's About Time


Neue Maxburg

Lenbachplatz, Pacellistraße; 80333 München


Theo Pabst und Sep Ruf, 1954-57


"In the 16th century, William V, Duke of Bavaria, built a new palace near the Michaelskirche and the Jesuit monastery on Neuhauserstraße. In 17th century this residence became known as “Herzog-Max-Burg” because of duke and regent Maximilian Philipp choosing this building as domicile.

During Second World War the Max-Burg had been destroyed almost completely. Only the tower remained more or less intact. From 1954 to 1957 Sep Ruf (...) and Theo Pabst (...) constructed a new building complex on this historical location: the “Neue Max-Burg”.

The building had been used as a juridical building and is internationally acclaimed for the intelligent and innovative combination of old and new. Ruf and Pabst modeled the raster and color of the facade after the appearance of the renaissance tower. But they did this without any hint of historicism: the ferro-concrete construction remains visible. Another highlight is the freely suspended canopy above the entrance. (...)"



"Wenn Denkmalschützer und Stadtbild-Experten vor der Gefährdung des Münchner Zentrums warnen, ist das kein Alarmismus. Auf den heiß begehrten Grundstücken im Altstadt-Ensemble lastet ein enormer ökonomischer Verwertungsdruck. Immer mehr der nach dem Krieg wieder aufgebauten Gebäude sind in die Jahre gekommen. Sie werden abgerissen oder modernisiert. (...)

Eine herausragende Anlage aus der Zeit des Wiederaufbaus ist zum Beispiel die Neue Maxburg an der Pacellistraße. Sie gilt als Ikone modernen Bauens aus den Fünfzigerjahren des vergangenen Jahrhunderts. Heute ist sie allerdings etwas in Vergessenheit geraten und wirkt teilweise auch vernachlässigt. (...)Im Zweiten Weltkrieg wurde der Komplex mit seinen abgeriegelten Höfen nahezu vollständig zerstört. Erhalten blieben von dem mächtigen Renaissancebau lediglich der charakteristische Turm und einzelne Räume. Das Areal diente lange als Trümmerschutt-Platz.

Der Wiederaufbau der Maxburg wurde schließlich zum Musterbeispiel dafür, wie Tradition und Moderne aufeinanderprallten. Der Freistaat wollte einen großzügigen Geschäfts- und Verwaltungsbau mit Räumen für die Justiz errichten. Zur Anlage gehört auch der gläserne,transparente Autopavillon gegenüber dem Künstlerhaus am Lenbachplatz. Verwirklicht wurde das Gesamtprojekt nach dem Entwurf der Architekten Sep Ruf und Theo Papst.

There was a time... when mobile or cell phones were only a dream for general people.. Rural people couldn't imagine that they can actually talk to the person who is far from them.. when land phone came... they got to know about the phone.. they saw the wires and thought this is how they actually communicate through phone... But when mobile phones came... It was like a magic to them.... no wires no Nothing... then with what they can communicate...

once mobile phones were fashion... and now.. necessity....

thanks to science. thanks to the phone companies for making this available to the people of all classes.
