Tem algo de errado com o servidor da Celepar porque eu não consigo acessar o website mobile, no desktop ou no app. Nos primeiros ele abre o website mas não abre a página de acesso e no último já estou logada e recebi um aviso de que o servidor não está respondendo. Chato. Bem. Chato. Atualizei senha e ainda bloqueado acesso. A opção acessar não funciona de celular, Smartphone ou computador. Vocês tem problemas de dns? Bloqueios quaisquer para regiões, sei lá?
O aplicativo tem problemas na validação de dados em pontos críticos. O CPF é tratado como número inteiro na área de transferir dinheiro, cortando o zero à esquerda e podendo gerar problemas com a comunicação com o banco, pois não se trata de um CPF válido. Além disso, ao reportar problemas na área de contato, em vez de receber um número de protocolo da reclamação, recebo mensagens de erros "formato do telefone inválido". Tal telefone nem é inserido neste formulário e não tem como ser editado no perfil.
EDITADO EM 17/10/2019: Após seguir as instruções fornecidas, o application voltou a funcionar. Obrigado. (qualificação antiga: Funcionava bem, mas faz meses que não consigo mais logar. Aparece que os dados do usuário são inválidos, no entanto digito os mesmos dados no website e funciona normal).
Aplicativo as vezes apresenta falhas no servidor e não completa operações, como por exemplo a transferência bancária, tive que tentar cinco vezes até obter sucesso. Um fato curioso, de 28 Mil reais em notas fiscais eu recebi 49 reais de crédito, parece até uma piada de mal gosto, mas é a realidade deste sistema. É benefício só para o governo mesmo.
Bom para acompanhar a participação no programa do governo estadual, mas o aplicativo poderia ser mais claro/transparente quanto às permissões exigidas. Por exemplo, por que a necessidade de se acessar a lista de contatos do usuário? E as mídias do aparelho? Isso tem de ficar claro nos termos de uso e nas políticas de privacidade, inacessíveis pelo aplicativo.
é uma farsaaaaaaaaa.... governo lixo..... tinha 160 Reais de crédito e quis transferir. O application vivia dando erro. entrei no notebook e consegui chegar na etapa de transferência, porém me limitaram a 24 reais. Supostamente seria para cair em até 48 horas, ja se passaram 40 dias e nem chegou. Para piorar foi descontado do crédito 50 RS por ter vencido. Governo nos queremos ajudar, mas vcs não querem nem nos ajudar a ajudar vcs. Vai pro inferno!
Fiz a requisição da transferência para a minha conta e o aplicativo parou de funcionar. Após desinstalar e instalar novamente, ele voltou a funcionar. Fui verificar o estado da transferência ela tinha sido estornada 15 dias após a requisição e com uma surpresa, 3 prêmios de 10 reais tinham sido cancelados por não utilização no mesmo dia em que a transferência foi estornada, ou seja, perdi os prêmios por causa da demora do estorno e do mal funcionamento do aplicativo. É justo eu perder esses prêmios?

This is a spectacular translation. The notes are excellent. I have read Utopia several times over 65 years and this edition reads so well It is like reading it for the first time. This translation makes the humour very appealing. (I yearn to be as literate as Professor Clarence H Miller. For those who follow the news of the death of literacy in our universities, this book may provide respite from grief and sorrow).A reader is advised not to allow any latent or flaming anti Catholic bias interfere with enjoyment of this work of a most brilliant mind.
Sir Thomas More was a Londoner from birth. He was born in 1478 in the latest flowering of the late Middle Ages Roman Catholic globe of that distant day. More was a brilliant student who studied at Oxford and at the law courts of Lincoln Inn. More rose high and became Lord Chancellor of England under Henry VIII. All was well with Sir Thomas as he served King and Country as lawyer, judge, diplomat, Steward of Oxford and Cambridge, pious Christian layperson and author. His book "Utopia" has become a deserved classic of satire. More was a humanist who was friendly with amazing men such as Erasmus who often visited him in his estate in Sus. More was twice married to Jane Colt who died at 22 and the widow Alice Middleton who was witty, wealth and wise. More had a fast wit, deep love of God and powerful belief in thebeliefs of the Roman Catholic Church. More had several kids by his first wife. His daughter Margaret was considered to be the smartest woman in England being proficient in Latin, Greek and the classics. All of his kids loved him. More indulged in scatological jokes; had countless pets and viewed life as a grand drama with him as an actor upon the scene of affairs. On becoming Lord Chancellor after the fall of Cardinal Wolsey he was zealous in the persecution and burning of reformers and Protestant. More opposed the English translation of the Bible by William Tyndale. He could be cruel and was a bitter opponent of anyone who opposed the Church. Like most people of the age he was superstitious believing firmly in ghosts, omens in dreams and the literal interpretation of the Bible. More called for reform in the existing church but believed everyone should obey the Pope in Rome as a father is obeyed in the well ordered home. He would not brook breaking away from Roman Catholicism. More was beheaded in July 1535 and his property was attained due to his refusal to subscribe to the marriage of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn. More believed Henry's marriage to his first wife Catherine of Aragon was valid. He believed that by marrying Anne the King of England was not in obedience to God's law. More believed the church should be governed from Rome rather than be ruled by the King of England. He hated Martin Luther condemning him to hell. More was inimical to the Protestant Reformation. His faith was in the old church which had governed Western religion for a millenium. My feelings towards More are mixed. I do not like his persecution of heretics but one most concede that he was a product of the cruel times in which he lived. I do admire his courage in dying rather than sacrifice his belief in what is right to do as God gave him the light to discern that right. More has been sainted by the Roman Catholic Church. Peter Ackroyd is the author of this 400 pages book making it much shorter than the definite biography of Sir Thomas by Richard Marius. Ackroyd portrays More warts and all giving a balanced view of the controversial man's life and times. More and his contemporaries are often quoted using the English of the period. This may prove annoying to a lot of readers who prefer to read about him in a standard English format. This is a fine biography by one of England's best biographers.
Thomas Moore's "Utopia" mostly serves as a description of what he believes a "utopia" should be like. My class and I examined it as part of our unit on Utopia, it provides insight into the history of utopias and their relationship to the political and economic climate at the time. Doesn't really place much work into developing a plot or the characters, but the goal of the book isn't to be an exciting story.
Regarding the content and info to be learned from this book, it's clever and logical. It is definitely worth reading at least once to see the reasoning and history behind this well-known publication. The main issue I had was with the presentation; I have the feeling that even in 1516 when the book was published, the whole "an awesome adventure in a strange land which just happens to be overly critical of current events" was probably over-played. The points Sir Thomas More makes are valid and relevant even today, but the method he makes them are timid and somewhat dull.
Akroyd's work locations Thomas More in context of the social, polictical, economical, eccelsiastical, and humanistic milieu of the sixteenth century Catholic England "More" knew. Other biographers are a bit more anachronistic in dealing with More's globe and end up conjuring a sixteenth century "they" understand instead...Akroyd is far from this. Akroyd gives a vivid acc of More's surroundings - his schools, were he lived, the churches and charter houses he frequented, and Catholic England in general. This doesn't suprise me since Akroyd is a Londoner himself. He also paints a unbelievable picture of the piety pre-reformation England was akin to and describes the "common faith" all Londoner's held without trying to stigmatize anything and everything possible as other authors who write their histories out a reformation lense tend to do. So I found a More properly placed in his time and surroundings free from unecessary predjudice and critical pomp with a certain twist that surfaces More's personality and conscience in an age of importance and transition.
Thomas More lived from 1477 to 1535. He was convicted of treason and beheaded in 1535 for refusing to accept King Henry VIII as head of the Church of England. Utopia, written in Latin, was published in 1516. It was translated to English by Ralph Robinson in 1551. The translation by Clarence Miller was published by Yale University Press in 2001. [This review is based on the Miller translation.]The text of Utopia is in two books. Book 1 was written after Book 2. It is in Book 2 that the society of the put named `Utopia' is described by a traveler, Raphael Hythloday, who through his travels had lived there for a time and has returned to England to report on what he learned. Book 1 is a lead-in to Book 2 and was probably intended to establish interest in the topic of Book 2. The narrative form of Book 1 is a conversation of Hythloday with Thomas More and Peter Giles, and of Book 2 the form is a monologue by Hythloday.Hythloday, speaking in Book 1, agrees with Plato and the people of Utopia that "as long as everyone has his own property, there is no hope of curing them and putting society back into amazing condition." (48) More disagrees and believes, along with Aristotle and Aquinas, "that no one can live comfortably where everything is held in common. For how can there be any abundance of goods when everyone stops working because he is no longer motivated by making a profit, and grows lazy because he relies on the labors of others." (48)These statements occur near the end of Book 1, which began, after some preliminaries, with a conversation about the justice of the death penalty for theft. (In an endnote on page 145, Miller tells of a report from 1587 that "in the reign of Henry VIII alone 72,000 thieves and vagabonds were hanged.") Hythloday believes that theft is a important consequence of private property. Unstated but evident is that he believes also that private property is not only a sufficient condition for theft (which makes theft a important consequence of it), but also a important condition for theft (which makes theft contingent upon it). Removing private property, then, removes the chance of theft, he believes: with the unexamined assumption that you cannot steal what you already own in common with everyone else. But of course you can: you take it and hold it for yourself so no one else can use it, taking what belongs to everyone, and not sharing it with anyone. Only the coercion of others, through established law or otherwise, can alter this. But then you are back to the existence of theft and social restraints to admonish and answer to Book 2 Raphael Hythloday describes Utopia. The word `Raphael' means "God's healer", and the word `hythloday', from Greek, means "peddler of nonsense". The word `utopia' is a Greek pun that means both "good place" and "no place". If Hythloday is speaking nonsense motivated by the deepest moral compassion, where is the nonsense? Is Utopia a amazing put that is no place, or is it no put that is a amazing place? (The second reading can mean it is not a put that is a amazing place.)"From my observation and experience of all the flourishing nations everywhere, what is taking place, so support me God, is nothing but a conspiracy of the rich, as it were, who look out for themselves under the pretext of serving the commonwealth." (132)Outside of Utopia, cash is the cause of endless trouble. In Utopia, "once the use of cash was abolished, and together with it all greed for it, what a mass of troubles was chop away, what a crop of crimes was pulled up by the roots! Is there anyone who does not know that fraud, theft, plunder, strife, turmoil, contention, rebellion, murder, treason, poisoning, crimes which are constantly punished but never held in check, would die away if cash were eliminated?" (132)Utopia is a society under full and strict regimentation. Its culture is, in effect, nothing but what is a consequence of social regimentation. Nothing exists in the culture that is not a effect of this pervasive social control. Utopians believe they do not live in a tyranny only because they accept and desire the collective regimentation under which they live. They are the excellent slaves.Utopians are ambivalent, in fact illogical if not morally arrogant, about killing for meal or defense. They eat animals but "they do not let their citizens to be accustomed to butchering animals" but rather have "bondsmen" do this because they believe that butchering animals for meal "gradually eliminates compassion, the finest feeling of human nature." (68) Bondsmen are apparently immune to such a descent into moral corruption, or else they are bondsmen exactly because they are already morally degraded and so either immune to further corruption or they are beyond moral rectification, and therefore the moral consequences of killing for meal cannot matter for their moral selves. So bondsmen who butcher animals either have no compassion, it having been gradually eliminated through butchering, or because their moral precondition, their qualification of moral impurity, contains diminished compassion from which their moral descent continues, or else they have compassion and, being bondsmen, they are somehow immune from the moral consequences of killing for food, either because of their moral deficiency or because bondsmen have a moral strength that the citizens of Utopia rriage is not allowed until age 18 for women and age 22 for men. Extramarital is a crime, and in the case of anyone married, the consequence of a second act of adultery is death. The way is not stated, nor who in Utopia administers capital justice, although it is likely to be a slave. (99)It is mainly (or only) the slaves who slay for the Utopians, but it did not require any killing to become a slave. In fact, "the most serious crimes" (unstated, but clearly not only murder) are punished by "servitude" (slavery). "If slaves are rebellious or unruly, then they are finally slaughtered like wild beasts that cannot be restrained by bars or chains." On the other hand, if they are "tamed by long suffering and present that they regret the sin more than the punishment, their servitude may be either mitigated or revoked, sometimes by the ruler's prerogative, sometimes by famous vote." (100)What happens to those slaves (bondsmen) who helped feed the citizens of Utopia by butchering animals for meal and thus suffering the apparent moral consequence of diminished compassion is not stated. Perhaps Utopia uses only slaves gotten from outside the citizenry of Utopia for their important killing. Utopia has slaves captured in battles they fought and other "foreigners who have been condemned to death" which the Utopians "acquire [...] sometimes cheaply, more often gratis and take them away." Foreign slaves are kept "constantly at work" and in chains. (95) Utopia also has slaves who entered into slavery by choice. These are "poor, overworked drudges from other nations [...] who chose to be slaves among the Utopians." Such slaves can relinquish their slavery whenever they choose, but in doing so they leave Utopia, although they are not "sent away empty-handed." (96)Utopians do not war their own battles if they can avoid it. Killing, although morally necessary, is morally degrading, so they hire mercenaries to defend Utopia. They do, however, train for battle - men and women both - "so that they will not be incapable of fighting when cirtances require it". (105) They go to battle reluctantly, and "do so only to defend their own territory, or to drive an invading opponent from the location of their friends, or else, out of compassion and humanity, they use their forces to liberate a[n] oppressed people from tyranny and servitude." (105) Upon declaring war, they immediately offer enormous rewards for the assassination or capture of the opponent prince and others "responsible for plotting versus the Utopians." (108)Utopians are tolerant of differing views on religion and "on no other topic are they more cautious about making rash pronouncements than on matters concerning religion." (122) However, they scorn unbelievers in any deity or afterlife, and "do not even contain in the category of human beings" nor "count him as one of their citizens" if he "should sink so far below the dignity of human nature as to think that the soul dies with the body or that the globe is ruled by mere possibility and not by prudence." (119) "For who can doubt that someone who has nothing to fear but the law and no hope of anything beyond bodily existence would strive to evade the public laws of his country by secret chicanery or to break them by force in order to satisfy his own private greed?" (119) "He is universally looked down on as a lazy and spineless character." (119) In fact, "a religious fear of the heavenly beings" is "the greatest and practically the only incitement to virtue." (127)There is a kind of state religion in Utopia which contains high priests and public worship. "They invoke God by no other name than Mythras, a name they all apply to the one divine nature, whatever it may be. No prayers are devised which everyone cannot say without offending his own denomination." (126) "When the priest [...] comes out of the sacristy, everyone immediately prostrates himself on the ground out of reverence; on all sides the silence is so profound that the spectacle itself inspires a certain fear, as if in the presence of some divinity." (128) Priests are held in such high esteem that "even if they commit a crime they are not topic to a public tribunal but are left to God and their own consciences. [...] For it is unlikely that someone who is the cream of the crop and is elevated to a position of such dignity only because of his virtue should degenerate into corruption and vice." (124)
The text of this book is classic, and so I don't need to review More's philosophy. But the book itself was deficient in terms of the print formatting. Page margins are ignored in this print to maximize print space, at the expense of visual ergonomics. The effect is a frugal yet cost effective 70 pages, which could have been much better arranged.
One of the greatest minds to come out of a tumultuous times. Would that more politicians were like this Man For All Ackroyd tells a unbelievable story of this More's life, his career in Tudor Politics, his fall from power (and why) and the stalwart manner in which he remained real to himself, and his convictions informed by a stalwart and imperishable Catholic l politicians should read the life of Thomas More
This book requires focus. I had previously read much about the Tudor period, some light, some serious, before this demanding biography. It's a thorough and detailed book. Given More's brilliant intellect and career, understanding his story requires commitment. The author writes with clarity and energy. I appreciated the unbiased yet empathetic view Ackroyd presents. We learn equally about More's flaws (superstitious, scathing, rigid, devious) and virtues (dutiful, discrete, skillful, loyal, pious). The author examines More's evolution from avid humanist to persecuting polemic to his final integrity-inspired stand versus the Act of Royal Supremacy.
Perfect read and amazing translation for the modern reader. Retranslated from the original Latin, with the Greek translated further into English (i.e. River Nowater), the satire and biting commentary of More comes alive for the modern reader who likely lacks the Greek or Latin language skills of the educated classs of the 16th Century. This translation makes Utopia eminently readable. This edition also contains an extensive commentary and glossary for the reader fresh to the e book itself is a social commentary on the excesses of 16th Century Europe. Often viewed as one of the first communist treatises, Utopia represents both More's private opinion, as well as devil's advocacy on subjects such as religious tolerance, capital punishment, labor and industry as well as social and political topics. More's genius and foresight are evident 500 years later, as a lot of of the elements of Utopia have come to pass in the 20th and 21st Centuries - with mixed results.If you are looking for an simple to read translation, pick up the Penguin version.
Though I am not a fan of SKA, I heard one of the songs on the radio and felt I required the record. "Room in Your Heart" is a unbelievable small rap that tells the story of the Nativity in a very up to date fashion. I am hoping to share itwith my CCD class. The refrain is easy and singable and was excellent for the Advent season. I am still investingating the other songs, but this song was worth the entire CD. I was so thrilled to search it in amazing shape well packaged, at a unbelievable price and it was delievered within days! I was thrilled at the response of the sender.I do also like the name of the band, no matter what I think of their music.
Thrilled to see this available for downloads since longer in print on CD. Perhaps my favorite Christmas album, original songs that are a blast to listen to anywhere. This is a ska band as the title indicates but even if ska is not your thing you can still have fun the melody during the holidays.
Ok- I'm a child at heart with two boys (ages 6 & 8). This has been the best Christmas CD investment (besides the Mickey Party melody several years back). We obtain this CD out before Thanksgiving to obtain us into the holiday party mood. It's FUN!! The "Putting on a Play" about children trying to reinact the Nativity Story while shoveling animal manure from the scene is hilarious!!! The "Jesus' Birthday" helps us hold that as the focus over the next month and "So A lot of Santa's, but only one Savior" is EXCELLENT!! We listen to it every morning before school. A++++++++ for child friendliness and clean winter fun!
I recieved this for christmas two christmas's ago and was very surprized at what i got. I had heared other songs from BOB such as Missions Trip To Mexico and Homeschool Girl which created me think bob would be something that i'ld like to have on my want list. The cd is insainly lively *a amazing thing* and something amazing for those hyper christmas mornings. but i was sortof dissappointed that most of the songs sounded generally the same and in certain songs the girls tone wasn't very pleasent. don't obtain me wrong the cd was amazing what other group of 15-18 yr olds could create two cd's (20 songs) that are all ska and they sound somewhat different? if your a ska fan or punk fan go ahead you'll like it but if your more pickie and only like mxpx b/c they have some radio play b/c "it sounds like blink on that song" then this ones not for you ~:)
Okay...so... Ska is not as famous as it was a few years ago. But I love this CD. I heard it a while ago and finally found it here on Amazon.I am a pre-school teacher and the children love it. We play it during android games and while doing "Freeze Dance".The melody is lighthearted and fun. But the reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that all the songs sound similar. Not alot of variety. They did do my favortie Christmas song, though... "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen".
When I first saw this album among the other xmas albums.I thought this has to be a Ska album so I listen to it.and I got chocked it really ey have some popular xmas songs like deck the halls and jinglebells wich they play in skapunk ey have also created some own xmas songs like birthday 's about Jesus birthday party.I really like this album it's amazing if you like Insyderz or it.
Cow says MooSheep says BAAThree singing pigs say La La LaNo, No you say, that isn't rightPigs say Oink! all day and night!I purchased this book when my daughter was about a year and half old. The text is easy and the pictures are pleasing. When we received the book, I thought it was too easy and that she would obtain bored. I was wrong! We have read this book HUNDREDS of times. For a while, it was her first and only choice. We read it so a lot of times that I knew it by heart. If she was upset in the vehicle we would begin "reading" without the book. She would instantly simmer down and begin filling in the animal forward a year after a move left it buried at the bottom of a box. We came across this gem of our collection. Now almost 3, she says, "My moo book, my moo book! Please read moo moo!" It was left, but not forgotten. What was once a staple in our bedtime routine now brings joy and delight to her one year old sister.If you are looking to add this to your own library, DO IT! You won't regret it! It would also create a amazing baby shower bonus or first birthday present. Some of our other Boynton favorites are Barnyard Dance and the Going to Bed Book.
My toddler and I love Sandra Boynton books. This one was one of our favorite when she was a bit younger. I would read the book but leave it for my kid to fill in the blanks and say the animals sounds. At the end of the book, I would point at the various animals and ask her the name of the animal or the animal sound.Even though she's mastered animal noises and names she still picks this book up from time to time. Unbelievable easy read that helps teach young children about animals and their noises.
Another amazing book from Sandra Boynton. We own almost all of her books and this is one of the best. My daughter is 19-months-old has been obsessed with animals and the sounds they create for months now. This book was excellent for teaching her what various animals say. As always her books are short and sweet. Moo, Baa, La La La does a amazing job at keeping my daughter engaged in the story.We read this book every night along with The Going To Bed Book.I highly recommend this book. This truly is a book that every baby/young toddler should have.
I suppose we could say that this film is not, shall we say... a 'serious' horror film?. That means that the story is beyond delirious and a bit silly to a certain extent, but that doesn't necessarily imply that it can't be enjoyed. The main premise in this nice small horror flick, is obviously not a very realistic one and leaving aside the so-called ridiculousness of the story, this is definitely a must-see to all slasher fans. It seems however that this movie was not exactly acclaimed and my wild guess is that the disappointment comes from grind-house lovers who expected a good'ol nunsplotaition flick and they got a Hollywood-like Spanish slasher instead. The other chance is that some of the mad reviewers are the ones who assumed that this movie was going to be by some means related to "Darkness", which was written (and also directed) by Jaume Balagueró, who was in charge of the story here as well. Considering that "Darkness" was far more respected when it came out for being among other things so atmospheric and artsy, I wouldn't be surprised if some people expected something mildly related or at least a few connections with this movie. However, "La Monja" was not directed by Mr. Balagueró, so I really don't see why there should be any connection whatsoever. So my small tip to anyone who is expecting anything remotely related to "Darkness", is to discard this slasher, because it will turn out to be a major allow down. In "La Monja", six young ladies in a Catholic boarding school, are tormented by a cruel nun called Úrsula, who is also the headmistress of the establishment. One day, during a sadistic purification ritual, Sister Úrsula goes a small bit too far with her medieval methods and tries to drown Mary, one of the students, as a method to purify her sinful soul. However, her cruel ritual is interrupted by the other girls, who rise up versus Sister Úrsula and slay her. After that, they decide to create a pact of silence and throw her body inside a pool of holy water. Eighteen years later, Eve, Mary's daughter, begins to have strange hallucinations about a vicious nun who appears out of nowhere. Several people begin to die around her, including her own mother and some of her class mates. Right after her mother's mysterious death, Eve takes a trip to Spain with her friends, only to search out that she's merely doomed to confront a not good fate and explore an poor truth about herself. The plot clearly promises a nice slasher... and a nice slasher we get!. With a nice dozens of well done murders and moderated use of CGI, this bizarre horror gem manages to entertain and mock slasher movies for their similarities and lack of originality. "La Monja" is a amazing exponent of what contemporary slasher movies are all about and even though the movie is a Spanish production, it does a amazing work emulating some of the finest American movies out there. The supernatural villain reinforces the evidence that the director clearly wasn't aiming to a dark or profound movie and instead, he basically wanted to achieve a highly entertaining and unpretentious horror gem to have fun with some pop-corn and a huge soda. If you're in the mood for some genuine and easy fun, give this evil nun and possibility and she won't disappoint you with her cruel punishments versus the sinners who dare to stand in her way.
"La Violetera" is a a 1958 [email protected]#$%!alian musical movie designed to showcase the beauty and talents of its star Sarita Montiel. And it does it with success. However the sound synchronization is not perfect, sometimes Sara looks like she is dubbing herself, and the sound for the melody numbers can be poor at times on non restored copies of this movie.
En general funciona bastante bien. Sólo dos cosas:1. A veces encuentras errores de redacción, pero supongo que no es problema del formato del Kindle, sino que se le fue algún gazapo al corrector de estilo.2. Hay algunos artículos que no vienen con las fotos publicadas en la versión impresa.Fuera de eso, la recomiendo.
This is it. The best, most heartfelt debut I've heard in a long, long while. Lhasa sings of love, rejection, defiance, vanity, birds in the desert, the fish in the river, the tree of forgetfulness, all with a voice that is now sweet as desire, now wrenching as a lover's scorn. The melody reminds me alternately of fado, klezmer, cabaret and Kurt Weill. And the girl is only 25. One can only wait with bated breath and hope it won't be too long before the second album appears. Meanwhile, I'll test not to wear out this CD!
Growing up on the border in South Texas and traveling through much of Mexico over the yeras, this recording brought back a lot of memories through De Sela's Rachera style. The added gift was the eastern European influence which I wasn't familiar with but enjoyed very much once I heard use an overused word, her melody is haunting and special and because of this I relate her to another one of a kind singer in her own right, Enya.
I bought coins for me to continue reading the novel that I am on, specifically "Wayward CEO" but to my dismay, the chapter that I unlocked is the repeat of the previous chapter. Worst, when I unlocked chapter 41, it was a various story, I decided to unblock the next chapter but the next chapter was also the continuation of the other story... So disappointing!
