Translation

Leonardo Da Vinci was born in an Italian town called Vinci. He lived in a time period called the Renaissance, when everyone was interested in art. Even though Da Vinci was a great artist, he became famous for the other things he could do. He was a sculptor, a scientist, an inventor, an architect, a musician, and a mathematician. Da Vinci’s paintings were done in the realist style.

Realism is a type of art that tries to show things exactly as they appear in life. It began in the 18th century, but the greatest realist era was in the mid – 19th century. Most realists were from France, but there were some famous American painters who were realists too.

Surrealists’ paintings were generally based on dreams. Their paintings were filled with familiar objects which were painted to look strange or mysterious. They hoped their odd paintings would make people look at things in a different way and change the way they felt about things. Salvador Dalí was best known for the striking and bizarre imges in his surrealist works.

Լեոնարդո Դա Վինչին ծնվել է Վինչի անունով իտալական քաղաքում: Նա ապրել է մի ժամանակաշրջանում, որը կոչվում է Ռենեսանս և երբ բոլորը հետաքրքրված էին արվեստով: Չնայած որ Դա Վինչին հրաշալի նկարիչ էր, նա հայտնի դարձավ ուրիշ բաների համար: Նա քանդակագործ էր, գիտնական, ճարտարապետ, երաժիշտ և  մաթեմատիկոս: Դա Վինչիի նկարները արվել են ռեալիստ ձևով:

Ռեալիզմը արվեստի տեսակ է, որը փորձում է ցույց տալ ամեն ինչ, ինչպես իրականում կա: Այն սկսվել է 18-րդ դարում, բայց ռեալիզմի լավագույն շրջանը 19-րդ դարի կեսերին էր: Ռեալիստների մեծ մասը Ֆրանսիայից էին, բայց կային նաև հայտնի ամերիկյան ռեալիստ նկարիչներ:

Սուռեալիստների նկարները սովորաբար հիմնված էին երազների վրա: Նրանց նկարներում կային ծանոթ առարկաներ, որոնք նկարված էին տարօրինակ ձևով: Նրանք մտածում էին, որ իրենց տարօրինակ նկարները մարդկանց կստիպեն աառարկաներին ուրիշ ձևով նայել և կփոխեն իրենց զգացմունքները դրանց նկատմամբ: Սալվադոր Դալին ճանաչված էր իր նկարներում տարօրինակ և տպավորիչ պատկերների համար:

Translation of a review of “Pirates of the Caribbean 2”

Ջեքը վերադարձել է։ Եվ նորից, այս տարօրինակ ծովահենը հետախուզման մեջ էր։

Ջեք Ճնճղուկի փախուստի կազմակերպման մեջ մեղադրվող Վիլ Թուրներ և Էլիզաբեթ Սվան ամուսիններին ձերբակալելուց հետո, “Արևելյան Հնդկաստան” Առևտրի ընկերությունը ներկայացնող չարամիտ լորդ Բեքետը Վիլլին առաջարկում է այսպիսի պայման․ գտնել ծովահենին և վերադարձնել, բայց առաջին հերթին բերել նրա հեքիաթային գանձեր գտնող կողմնացույցը։ Այլապես Վիլին մահապատժի կենթարկեն։ Այլընտրանք չունենալով՝ Վիլլը որոշեց գտնել այդ ծովահենին՝ կնոջն ազատելու համար։

Միևնույն ժամանակ Ջեքին առևանգել էր մարդակերների մի խումբ, որը մտածում էր, թե նա աստված է։ Ջեքն այդ կղզի գնացել էր Դեյվի Ջոնսի սիրտը գտնելու համար։ Ջոնսն իր սիրտը պահել էր սնդուկի մեջ։ Ջեքի կարծիքով ով ունենար Ջոնսի սիրտը, նա էլ կկարողանար կառավարել ամենասարսափազդու նավն՝ իր անձնակազմով հանդերձ։ Անձնակազմի մեջ էր նաև Վիլլ ի հայրը՝ Բիլլ Թուրները։

Վիլլը փնտրում էր Ջեքին, որպեսզի ազատվեր կախաղանից ։ Նա նույնպես ուզում էր Դեյվի Ջոնսի սիրտը, որպեսզի ազատի իր հոր հոգին։ Ջեքը ուզում է գտնել Վիլլին, որպեսզի մարի իր պարտքը Ջոնին, Ջոնը ուզում է գտնել Ջեքին, որովհետև այս խաբեբայի կյանքի ժամկետը լրացել էր։ Լորդ Բեքեթը փնտրում էր Ջեքին և իր կողմնացույցը, որը նրան կտաներ սնդուկի մոտ։ Էլիզաբեթի նախկին նշանածը՝ Նորինգտոնը, Ջեքից վրեժ է ուզում լուծել և հույս ունի, որ դրանով կարժանանա Լորդ Բեքեթի հավանությանը։ Էլիզաբեթն ուղղակի ուզում է ամուսնանալ։

Jack is back. And once again, the eccentric pirate is a wanted man.

After arresting lovebirds Will Turner and Elizabeth Swann for abetting Capt. Jack Sparrow’s escape (which ended the first Pirates movie The Curse of the Black Pearl), the malicious Lord Beckett of the East India Trading Company offers Will a deal: Locate the pirate and return him—and, more importantly, the mystical treasure-bearing compass he possesses—or else face sure execution. With no other option, Will sets out to find the outlandish buccaneer, promising to return and free his love.

Meanwhile, Jack, who’s been captured by a group of cannibals who think he’s a god, is after something of his own: a key to legendary pirate Davy Jones’ locker. The key unlocks a chest containing no swag, merely the still-beating heart of the feared sea marauder. According to Jack, whoever seizes Jones’ heart will control the half-squid, half-man himself—and his crew of undead, sea-ruling souls that includes Will’s cursed father, “Bootstrap” Bill Turner.

Will wants Jack so he can escape the gallows. He also wants the heart to free his dad’s soul. Jack wants Will in order to settle a debt with Jones. Jones wants Jack, whose time of scheming as a living swindler is up. Lord Beckett wants Jack and the compass, which ultimately leads to the chest. Elizabeth’s ex-fiancé, Commodore Norrington, wants revenge on Jack and hopes to earn the approval of Lord Beckett. And Elizabeth just wants to be married—or so it seems. Whew! Talk about your tangled and mangled treasure hunt.

music on human body

So at first glance music has nothing to do with human body, but in my opinion you can get pleasurable feelings by just listening to music . Or you can make your mood a melody. Many people don’t understand music so they can’t listen and feel something. As to myself, I am a musical person. So, I feel and get feelings by just listening, and it has some influence on my body. At the same time you can feel bad by listening to sad songs. Music can rapidly change your mood.
