Considered one of the pioneers of the visual arts in Mexicali, Baja California, Alfredo Carreño is a sensitive artist who pours his feelings and emotions in the work with hand and brush full of life. The colors and elements of his work tell stories, they talk by themselves and show who he is better than what could be said with words. His passion can be perceived at the moment of being in presence of his art.
He was born on October 1954 in Mexicali, Baja California, son of the military Carlos Carreño Garcia and Mrs. Rosa Maria Valenzuela de Carreño, the youngest of 3 brothers. From an early age he showed an affinity for the arts in general music and in particular for drawing. He was a young spirited prankster, but who also greatly enjoyed the solitude and privacy. During the first years of his adolescence he heard by the first time to Spanish singer Massiel, who became the muse of his biggest inspirations and led him to decide on the path that would define his life. Art was the most appropriate way to express what he felt, and thanks to the inspiration that was Massiel, the art became his life, his career and passion.

Albert Einstein (14 March 1879 – 18 April 1955) was a German-born theoretical physicist. He developed the general theory of relativity, one of the two pillars of modern physics (alongside quantum mechanics). Einstein’s work is also known for its influence on the philosophy of science. Einstein is best known in popular culture for his mass-energy equivalence formula E = mc2 (which has been dubbed “the world’s most famous equation”). He received the 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics for his “services to theoretical physics”, in particular his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, a pivotal step in the evolution of quantum theory.
Near the beginning of his career, Einstein thought that Newtonian mechanics was no longer enough to reconcile the laws of classical mechanics with the laws of the electromagnetic field. This led to the development of his special theory of relativity. He realized, however, that the principle of relativity could also be extended to gravitational fields, and with his subsequent theory of gravitation in 1916, he published a paper on general relativity. He continued to deal with problems of statistical mechanics and quantum theory, which led to his explanations of particle theory and the motion of molecules. He also investigated the thermal properties of light which laid the foundation of the photon theory of light. In 1917, Einstein applied the general theory of relativity to model the large-scale structure of the universe.

Do Witches and Wizards?
Have you ever wondered if witches and wizards really exist in this modern world? Well yes, they do exist, and they are quite active in the modern world. You might also be a victim of them without knowing what’s really happening within your body.
Today, many well-educated scientists are beginning to believe its existence. In fact, they even began studying about its spiritual powers and mysteries.
Witches and Wizards broadly means the practice of, and belief in, magical skills and abilities that are able to be exercised individually, by designated social groups, or by persons with the necessary esoteric secret knowledge. Witchcraft is a complex concept that varies culturally and societally, therefore it is difficult to define with precision and cross-cultural assumptions about the meaning or significance of the term should be applied with caution. Witchcraft often occupies a religious, divinatory, or medicinal role, and is often present within societies and groups whose cultural framework includes a magical world view. Although witchcraft can often share common ground with related concepts such as sorcery, the paranormal, magic, superstition, necromancy, possession, shamanism, healing, spiritualism, nature worship, and the occult, it is usually seen as distinct from these when examined by sociologists and anthropologists.
