Peacock Eyes - Recipes

One of the traditional events in Rădăuți, the Peacock's Eye Fair, will take place at the end of this week, between August 25 and 27, 2017. The event is organized by the City Hall, the Ethnographic Museum "Samuil and Eugenia Ioneț" and the House Municipal Culture. The mayor of Rădăuți, Nistor Tatar, wanted to specify that this year the festival no longer benefits from the financial support of the Suceava County Council, being removed from the calendar of cultural actions organized by this institution.

"Until now, I received, on average, about 4,000 lei from the County Council for cultural activities. This year they cut us off. Probably the cultural activities are financed on party cards, and it was considered that the municipality of Rădăuți no longer has cultural actions ", said Nistor Tatar. He specified that the financing of the potters' fair will be provided entirely from the local budget and from sponsorships. Thus, the total budget of the fair will be 90,000 lei, of which 67,000 lei were allocated from the city hall budget, and the difference is covered by sponsorships.

Nistor Tatar said that the official opening of the fair will take place on Friday, at 10:30 at the town hall and at 11:00 at the Ethnographic Museum "Samuil and Eugenia Ioneț".

The fair will be attended by potters from several ceramic centers, including those in Rădăuți, Marginea, Horezu - Vâlcea, Baia Mare - Maramureș, Dorohoi - Botoșani, Corund, Liliceni and Miercurea Ciuc - Harghita, Harghita, Deva - Hunedoara, Dej - Cluj, Pașcani - Iași, Arad, Bistrița Năsăud and Galați.

During the potter's fair, a folk show will take place on Friday, while on Saturday, the participants of the fair will be able to attend a show supported by Lara & amp Band, Claudia Pavel and Matteo. On Sunday, a show supported by Fără Zahăr and Bosquito is scheduled.

Over 100 craftsmen from famous pottery centers in the country and abroad gathered at the oldest event of the municipality of Radauti - Potters' Fair "Peacock's Eye", located at the XXXIV edition. The event started on Friday, with the official opening, which was not attended by the local authorities but also by the social democratic parliamentarians from Suceava, the deputy Ioan Stan and the senator Neculai Bereanu.

Both Radauti residents and tourists who have passed through the center of the city can admire from Friday to Sunday, August 28, including various objects, from jugs and pots to decorative dishes, plates and cups. This year, too, there is no shortage of practical demonstration workshops for potters, so that visitors can watch how a piece of clay turns into an object.

For visitors, the fair is an opportunity to get acquainted with traditional pottery and modern pottery, and for potters it is an opportunity to discuss the problems of this traditional craft with other colleagues.

„The wonders of the art of traditional pottery dominate the city of Rădăuți at the beginning of each autumn. Târgul Olarilor, the oldest cultural event brings to the city over 100 famous craftsmen from Horezu, Corund, Oboga, Glogova, Marginea, Obârşa, Rădăuţi, Dorohoi, Botoșani, Baia Mare, Dej, Deva, Liliceni, Santana de Mureș, Carta, Bistrița , Galați, but also from the Republic of Moldova and Ukraine ”, said Mayor Nistor Tatar.

The PSD deputy, Ioan Stan, visited the stands of the folk craftsmen and bought some clay objects.

"I like to have such objects in the house that hide a huge amount of work. Nor is the craftsmen's fee paid for the cost of such a product ", said the Suceava parliamentarian.

The event is organized by Rădăuţi City Hall, the Ethnographic Museum "Samuil and Eugenia Ioneţ", the Municipal House of Culture, the Center for Preservation and Promotion of Traditional Culture within the Cultural Center "Bucovina" Suceava. Also during this fair, performances take place in the evening, on the stage in the central parking lot of Rădăuţi. On Sunday, the last day of the event that has already become a tradition, Alessia, Maxim and Puya will perform.


Peacock Eyes - Recipes

This spring, in the middle of May, we had the surprise to get to know a very beautiful butterfly, amazing in its color and impressive in its size. The night peacock eye butterfly scientifically named Saturnia pyri, if you didn't know, is the largest butterfly in Europe. It is so named because of the designs on the wings in the shape of eyes, similar to those of peacock feathers.
We observed four specimens, the largest having a wingspan of 15 cm and the smallest 12 cm. At first they seemed identical but we noticed that their antennae differ and we found out that this is a criterion for distinguishing the two sexes. Females have thinner antennae and males wider, wedge-shaped.

We found butterflies in gardens, on apple branches, but these butterflies can also be found in deciduous forests. Someone brought a butterfly to school in a jar and had already laid eggs, there were over 200 silver-white eggs on the bottom of the jar. I looked at her antennae to check, though that was no longer the case - she was a female.

After admiring them, I took the butterflies to the garden and carefully placed them on the branches of the trees. We know they don't live long as adults for about a week. The larvae (caterpillars) come out of the eggs and eat many leaves from the trees, and after their maturation they produce a cocoon in which to take shelter and continue their development. Then each will turn into a butterfly next spring. This mode of development is called complete metamorphosis and is found in most insects.

Then each will turn into a butterfly next spring. This mode of development is called complete metamorphosis and is found in most insects.

There is also a butterfly called a peacock's eye (Inachis io). It is smaller, measures about 5 cm, is more brightly colored and flies during the day. This year I noticed it since mid-April.
Unlike the night peacock butterfly, the day peacock lays its eggs on the nettle leaves that the larvae eat with great pleasure. Another difference between the two species is that the adults of the night peacock-eyed butterfly do not feed in their short life (nor do they have a horn) while the day-long ones feed on nectar from several plant species such as daffodils, axes, dandelions, etc. They lay eggs two or three times a year, can be seen until late autumn, in October, and in winter can hibernate as adults in various shelters.

I have attached some photos taken by Bilauca Bogdan from the ninth grade, to show you how beautiful these butterflies are.

Certain sunglasses spoil our eyesight, warns ophthalmologist Roxana Cozubaș. What are the signs of a healthy eye and at what age can we leave children in front of the screens?

How long should we leave the little ones in front of the screens? When should we take our child for an eye exam? If I expose myself too much to artificial light, will I have vision problems? Matricea Românească talked about these topics with Dr. Roxanza Cozubaș, ophthalmologist at the Emergency Clinical Hospital for Children "Grigore Alexandrescu" in Bucharest.

In short:
  • Myopia is gaining ground: “After the age of 7-8 we must keep in mind that myopia is in full growth process. Countries like Japan or China are 80% short-sighted, and we Europeans are about 30%. "
  • Sunglasses can be dangerous: "I do not recommend wearing a bad pair of sunglasses because the closed lenses allow the pupil to dilate, so a large amount of ultraviolet radiation will enter the eyes"
  • Pcomplicateddoctor or the internet: "I tell my parents that if they want another opinion I can recommend other doctors, but not to start searching on the internet"
  • The influence of diet on vision: "The best are berries, bell peppers, nuts, raw seeds, natural oils, everything that has a bright color"
Extensive interview:

From what age is indicated sto us do we leave children in front of phones, tablets and television?

The American Academy says that until the age of one and a half, two years, we should not leave the child on the screens at all. Recently, this rule has been relaxed a bit and it is said that between a year and a half, two years, we are allowed to leave the child on a video call, for example. After two years we can leave the children on the screens, but keep in mind that, as the screen is small, the child will tend to bring it very close. So, if they want to leave the little one with a cartoon, let it be a big screen and the child should be at a distance of 3-4 meters from it. After 5-6 years it can stay for about an hour, but again keeping the screen rule.

When is it recommended to bring your child for an eye examination?

I recommend bringing the child for an eye examination until the age of one, maximum two. It is good to come with the child when he is still young, because then he collaborates more easily. It is necessary to make a preventive check: even if you as a parent know that he has nothing, this way the child will get used to the doctor. There are many children who develop a fear of a doctor because they were not used to it from an early age, it is good to see that there are visits where nothing happens to them.

Is the use of makeup products a danger to the eyes?

One of the tips I give to ladies who cross my threshold is not to apply anything like mascara, blush, inside the lashes. Everything that crosses the eyelash line is good to be left alone because in that area there are certain glands that shed their secretion on the surface of the eye. If you come up with a dermatograph pencil and come across them, then you are blocking those excretion channels. Having nowhere to evacuate its contents, you will wake up with scalpels, ie some swellings that are not infections, but which are very unpleasant.

It is good to bring the child to preventive control, even if you as a parent know that he has nothing

If the doctor prescribed me glasses, but for financial reasons I choose a cheaper lens at the expense of a more expensive one, can I have problems?

In almost all locations that have certain segments with the price below we will find lenses made in China. They are not necessarily bad, but they are less developed. Of course it does not harm the eyesight, but you can not expect to find the best anti-glare treatment or the best computer filter.

Now that the weather is getting friendlier, many will buy sunglasses. What advice can you give them?

I recommend the patient to buy sunglasses from a specialized perspective. There are some indications such as those CE markings on the arm of the glasses that certify that the product has a European conformity. Then the filter category, the most popular are those in category three. I do not recommend wearing a bad pair of sunglasses, because closed lenses allow the pupil to dilate, and thus a large amount of ultraviolet radiation will enter the eyes.

There are many people who go to work very early in the morning, stay in an office all day, and go home in the evening after dark. Is there a danger if we do not expose ourselves to natural light?

Between 7-10 years and even later, exposure to natural light leads to the prevention of myopia. For us adults, things are not so bad anymore, in the sense that we can stay without natural light. If you only sit in artificial light, at some point you may feel tired, but that doesn't hurt your eyesight.

Clear, white, bright, stinging eyes are a sign of healthy vision

Many avoid crossing the threshold of the ophthalmologist and prefer to search for recipes for various diseases through a Google search. What do you tell them?

There are two categories of conditions: some urgent, such as something that entered my eyes, and non-emergencies. In the first case, I recommend washing the eye well with water, so not saline. On the non-emergency side are the problems we discover after a consultation, and then the parents search the internet. When I have to make a more drastic diagnosis, I tell my parents that if they want another opinion I can recommend them to other doctors, but not to start searching online.

Finally, please tell us what are the signs of an ophthalmologically healthy person.

The man who sees well should not squint or squint when looking into the distance. A patient sees well if he does not remove objects, then the appearance of the eyes is important. Clear, white, bright and stinging eyes are a sign of healthy vision.
