Alma (French automobile)

The Alma was a French automobile manufactured by Établissements Alma in Courbevoie, Seine, between 1926 and 1929.

Only a few cars of this marque were produced. The most significant model (maybe the only one) was a two-seater coupé called Alma6 or Alma Six, referring to the proprietary in-line six cylinder engine of 1642 cc. The relatively small engines with three valves to a cylinder were developed by an aero engineer named Henri Vaslin. The engine was so flexible that a 2 speed gearbox was used. Alma cars were equipped with four wheel brakes.

Alma (given name)

Alma is an English feminine given name, but has historically been used in the masculine form as well, sometimes in the form Almo. The origin of the name is debated, it was reserved as a title for classical goddesses as in the use " alma mater". It gained popularity after the Battle of Alma in the 19th century and appeared as a fashionable name for girls and a popular place name, but it has decreased in appearance in the 20th and 21st centuries. The name Alma also has several meanings in a variety of languages, and is generally translated to mean that the child "feeds one's soul" or "lifts the spirit".

Alma (play)

Alma is an example of site-specific promenade theatre (or more precisely a "polydrama") created by Israeli writer Joshua Sobol based on the life of Alma Mahler-Werfel. It opened in 1996, under the direction of Austrian Paulus Manker, at a former Jugendstil sanatorium building designed by architect Josef Hoffmann located in Purkersdorf near Vienna; and subsequently toured to locations in Venice, Lisbon, Los Angeles, Petronell, Berlin, Semmering, Jerusalem, and Prague.

Protagonist Alma Mahler-Werfel was initmately connected to an astonishing list of the famous creative spirits of the 20th century. Not only was she married sequentially to composer Gustav Mahler, architect Walter Gropius, and poet Franz Werfel (“ The Song of Bernadette”), but she had also fervent and sometimes notorious love affairs with the painters Oskar Kokoschka, Gustav Klimt, and several others.

The performance is not presented as a conventional theatre piece, but instead takes place throughout an entire building in simultaneous scenes highlighting the events and defining relationships of Alma's tumultuous life, with each playing area fully equipped with appropriate furniture and props.

Members of the audience can therefore choose to follow certain events, outcomes, and even individual characters from scene to scene, thus experiencing a uniquely personal version of Alma’s life story. When Gustav Mahler dies halfway through the piece, his funeral can be followed interactively with his music; and at the interval, the entire audience comes together at a buffet dinner featuring Austrian cuisine during which they can compare notes about what they have each experienced, and develop a fuller perspective of the biographical events.

The production was also adapted as a three-part film.

Alma (film)

Alma is a 2009 Spanish computer-animated dark fantasy horror short film produced by ex- Pixar animator Rodrigo Blaas. It had received notable recognition at the Fantastic Fest awards. The word " alma" in Spanish means "soul".

The album includes two versions of songs of great names of the Brazilian Popular Music, Meu Namorado, by Chico Buarque, and Saudades do Brasil em Portugal, by Vinicius de Moraes.

The album was released to highly critical and commercial success, reaching Platinum status. The first single chosen was "As Pedras da Minha Rua", with an innovative video directed by Enrique Escamilla. The special edition included two more songs. The second single was "Bom Dia, Amor (Carta de Maria José)", with lyrics inspired by a letter of Fernando Pessoa.
