Celebrating Hội An

15.07.2019 19:34  Date: July 16, 2019 By the light of the full moon, residents of the town burn incense and light small lanterns, floating them on the river until hundreds of colorful lanterns illuminate the water. During the full moon season with which the Hội An’s lantern festival aligns, today’s Doodle celebrates a historic town that’s remained largely unchanged for several centuries. Situated on the north bank of Vietnam’s scenic Thu Bon River, right where it empties into the South China Sea, Hội An was one of the busiest trading ports in Southeast Asia from the 15th to the 19th century. While the name Hội An means “peaceful meeting place,” the seaport has been abuzz with activity since the 2nd century. The surrounding area, known as Quảng Nam province, produced cinnamon and ginseng, as well as textiles and ceramics, enticing traders from all over Asia and Europe. By the 1600s, Dutch, Portuguese, Spanish, Indian, Filipino, Indonesian, Thai, French, British, and American ships would come and go, while Chinese and Japanese traders rented waterfront houses in the seaside town. Business tapered off when silt accumulation in the river made it difficult for larger ships to navigate. Fortunately, the city was spared from modernization for over 200 years, leaving the original street plan and buildings intact. In 1999, Hội An was designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Seventeenth-century Japanese traders built the lacquered wood Chùa Cầu, or “Bridge Pagoda,” with entrances guarded by statues of monkeys and dogs. Hundreds of timber-frame buildings and Chinese temples line narrow streets that are now popular with sightseers, historians, and filmmakers, seeking to experience and recapture a bygone era.

Bastille Day 2019

14.07.2019 00:13  Date: July 14, 2019 Today’s Doodle, illustrated by London-based guest artist , celebrates Bastille Day, La Fête Nationale, or Le 14 Juillet. This French national holiday commemorates the storming of the Bastille Saint-Antoine on this day in 1789, signaling the start of French Revolution—as well as a worldwide shift toward democracy and the values of Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité Festivities take place all over France and amongst French communities worldwide on this day off. In Paris, tricolor flags fly all over the capital city, while the stirring sounds of La Marseillaise ring throughout the arrondissements. A grand parade, attended by world leaders and French citizens alike, marches along the historic Champs-Elysées from the Arc de Triomphe to the Place de la Concorde, as military aircraft fly overhead. This tradition dates back to 1880, making it one of the world’s oldest national parades. The Paris Fire Brigade also march in the parade, even if they spent the previous night dancing. Bal Des Pompiers or “Dance of the Firemen" are held at fire stations across Paris, both before and after the big day. This year, crowds will gather in the evening at the Eiffel Tower and gardens of Trocadéro for a concert by the Orchestre national de France. The evening concludes with a grand fireworks display not only in Paris but throughout all of France. No matter how big or small one’s city, for the French people, Bastille Day is an occasion to celebrate with festivities par excellence. Guest Artist Q&A with Emanuelle Walker Today's Doodle was created by London-based guest artist Emanuelle Walker. Below she shares her thoughts on making the Doodle: Q: Why was this topic meaningful to you personally? A: Being Swiss and Canadian, I feel very close to the French people on many levels. I also spent six years living in France. It reminded me of the good times and of all the dear friends I met during this time. Q: What were your first thoughts when you were approached about the project? A: I was very excited! I have always been secretly dreaming of working on a Doodle. I remember the first ones in the early 2000s. I thought it was such a clever idea to add an illustration to the Google logo in commemoration of special events or notable figures. Q: Did you draw inspiration from anything in particular for this Doodle? A: I tried to visualize what I remembered of Bastille Day celebrations back when I was living in Paris. One particular night where we all gathered to watch the fireworks on a friend's rooftop, we had to climb out the Velux window, and clamber up to the top of the Haussmannian roof. The sky resembled a wavy sea in motion above our heads. The lights and smoky colors had been carefully picked to match the French flag chroma. Blues, reds, and whites reflected on us at dawn. Of course, Bastille Day has a deep and complex history, but it's that "Bleu-Blanc-Rouge" celebratory atmosphere I wanted to depict here. Q: What message do you hope people take away from your Doodle? A: Liberté, Égalité, Fraternité in a world where there could be much more of it. Early drafts by guest artist Emanuelle Walker Location: Tags:

René Favaloro’s 96th Birthday

11.07.2019 15:42  Date: July 12, 2019 “‘We’ is more important than ‘I.’ In medicine, the advances are always the result of many efforts accumulated over the years,” wrote Dr. René Favaloro, the Argentinian surgeon who introduced coronary artery bypass surgery into clinical practice and is celebrated in today’s Doodle. Born in the city of La Plata on this day in 1923, René Gerónimo Favaloro spent the first 12 years of his medical career as a country doctor in the farming community of Jacinto Arauz. He built an operating room, trained his own nurses, set up a local blood bank, and educated patients on how to prevent common ailments. The experience left him with a lifelong conviction that healthcare was a basic human right, regardless of economic circumstances. In 1962, he traveled to the United States to practice at the Cleveland Clinic, where he worked alongside Mason Sones, a pioneer of cineangiography—the reading and interpreting of coronary and ventricular images. After studying angiograms in the Sones Library, Dr. Favalaro was convinced that coronary artery bypass grafting could be an effective therapy. On May 9th, 1967, Dr. Favaloro operated on a 51-year-old woman with a blockage in her right coronary artery. Attaching her to a heart-lung machine, he stopped her heart and used a vein from her leg to redirect blood flow around the blockage. The historic operation was a success, and since then, the procedure has saved countless lives during the past half-century. Returning to Argentina in the early 1970s, Dr. Favaloro established the Favalaro Foundation in Buenos Aires. The center serves patients based on their medical needs rather than their ability to pay and teaches Dr. Favaloro’s innovative techniques to doctors all over Latin America. Discover the personal story of René Favaloro - from years of rural medicine to pioneering the heart bypass. In partnership with The Favaloro Foundation.

Argentina Independence Day 2019

09.07.2019 05:08  Date: July 9, 2019 Today’s Doodle celebrates Argentina’s Independence Day, known as Día de la Independencia. On this day in 1816, deputies of the organization known as the Provincias Unidas de America del Sur assembled in the Argentinian city of San Miguel de Tucumán and declared independence from Spanish rule for the provinces of Argentina, as well as Uruguay, Paraguay, and Bolivia. The family home where the historic meeting occurred is now an Argentinian museum known as the Casa Histórica de la Independencia. The date of the meeting also inspired the name of the widest avenue in the world, Avenida 9 de Julio in Buenos Aires, which boasts up to seven lanes in each direction. This national holiday is commemorated all across Argentina with cultural exhibits, patriotic speeches, and parades. Traditionally, the president attends a special mass at the Catedral Metropolitana de Buenos Aires. Many families take advantage of their time away from work and school to hold family reunions, feasting on asados and locro . Cafes along Buenos Aires’ Avenida de Mayo celebrate the occasion by serving churros and hot chocolate. ¡Feliz Día de la Independencia, Argentina! Location: Tags:

Tanabata 2019

06.07.2019 18:07  Date: July 7, 2019 On the seventh day of the seventh month, two mythical lovers—represented by the stars Altair and Vega—find a way to come together once a year, against all odds. Today’s Doodle celebrates Tanabata, also known in Japan as the “Star Festival.” Inspired by the Chinese Qixi Festival, Tanabata became popular in Japan during the Heian Period . The story of Hikoboshi, a humble cowherd who falls in love with Orihime, the daughter of the Sky King, has captured the imagination of lovers for centuries. Their separation by a mighty river, represented by the Milky Way, and eventual reunion is a timeless tale. Writing their wishes on colorful strips of paper known as tanzaku, Tanabata celebrants hang them on bamboo poles or trees and pray that their dreams will come true. The wishes are set afloat the following day, drifting on rivers toward the sea. The city of Sendai, located in Miyagi Prefecture, has become famous for its extravagant Tanabata celebrations, which are held in August and attract thousands of visitors every year. Tokyo’s Asagaya neighborhood also marks Tanabata in a big way, displaying huge papier-mache anime and cartoon characters. In Osaka, the Okawa River is transformed into a virtual Milky Way, filled with thousands of beautiful floating lights. 幸せ七夕! Location: Tags:
