Word Of The Day






: a tough lustrous silver-white magnetic metallic element that is related to and occurs with iron and nickel and is used especially in alloys


: a strong greenish blue : cobalt blue


Cobalt was used for centuries to impart a blue color to glazes and ceramics before it was isolated by Swedish chemist Georg Brandt around 1735.

"In the afternoon when the sun lights the stucco buildings across the street, it's possible to count a dozen different colors of paint, all fading together on the highest parts of the wall: yellow, ochre, brick, blood, cobalt, turquoise." -- From Barbara Kingsolver's 2009 novel The Lacuna

The metallic element "cobalt" ultimately draws its name from folklore. In Middle High German, "kobolt" denoted a usually helpful household elf that engaged in nasty pranks only when it was offended. Later, early Modern German "Kobold" came to refer to a variety of less helpful goblins inhabiting fields and mountains. The variant "Kobolt" in the 16th century was applied by German miners to ores containing the metal cobalt, which they considered to be worthless; they believed that mountain goblins had spoiled adjacent silver ores, or had stolen the silver within the ore. The metal itself in relatively pure form was not produced and described until the 17th century, when "cobalt," with its first letter influenced by New Latin "cobaltum," became part of the international language of science.

It's Been A While...

Hello readers,

I know I know it's been a long time since I updated this blog. I will try to get myself back into this. It was a crazy month of June with lots of work. Some updated news: I am not sure if you knew but not only do I have my Saturday show at www.lametro.com.ec but now I am on live with a radio show that I transmit from my house!!! It is called El Vagon Alternativo: ONLINE RADIO. I have been doing shows Sunday nights from 9pm (Ecuadorian time) for two hours as well as show during the week and this morning I debuted a show called "Breakfast with Morrissey and The Smiths" a one hour show that explores the music of The Smiths and Morrissey. You can check out the times at my facebook page of El Vagon Alternativo or find me at Edwin Poveda. I hope you get a chacne to check out these shows. Many fans have said that one show during the week is not enough thus the creation of El Vagon Alternativo: ONLINE RADIO! You Can hear it at www.elvagonalternativo.listen2myradio.com
