I'm not the biggest fan of Mahler, but this symphony is a beautiful piece, certainly my favourite.

Tennis has no blood passport system, and does basically no out of competition testing.

The methods and drugs used by Armstrong in 1999 would work in tennis right now, with zero chance of being caught (not slightly surprising to anyone familiar with the topic, btw).

Re: Classical and Opera lovers

I've never "watched" an opera (pls. correct me if the expression is wrong), and the local cinema is offering an live opera exho. Any tips?. They will show EUGENE ONEGIN, a russian opera.

Yes, it is that short.

They say that about many things, but it's especially true about opera: either you love it or you hate it.

All those operas are great, but I'd recommend this one: http://www.cinecolombia.com/pelicula...cosi-fan-tutte

Tosca is also a personal favourite. But again, you can't go wrong with any of those.
