The Illustrated Man is classic Bradbury - a collection of tales that breathe and move, animated by sharp, intaken breath and flexing muscle. Here are eighteen startling visions of humankind's destiny, unfolding across a canvas of decorated skin - visions as keen as the tattooist's needle and as colorful as the inks that indelibly stain the body. The images, ideas, sounds and scents that abound in this phantasmagoric sideshow are provocative and powerful: the mournful cries of celestial travelers cast out cruelly into a vast, empty space of stars and blackness Here living cities take their vengeance, technology awakens the most primal natural instincts, Martian invasions are foiled by the good life and the glad hand, and dreams are carried aloft in junkyard rockets.
Ray Bradbury's The Illustrated Man is a kaleidoscopic blending of magic, imagination, and truth, widely believed to be one of the Grandmaster's premier accomplishments: as exhilarating as interplanetary travel, as maddening as a walk in a million-year rain, and as comforting as simple, familiar rituals on the last night of the world. The powerful German counteroffensive operation code-named Wacht am Rhein Watch on the Rhine launched in the early morning hours of December The Illustrated Man free ebook 16, , would result in the greatest single extended land battle of World War II.
To most Americans, the fierce series of battles fought from December through January is better known as the Battle of the Bulge. Almost one million soldiers would eventually take part in the fighting. Different from other histories of the Bulge, this book tells the story of this crucial campaign with first-person stories taken from the authors interviews of the American soldiers, both officers and enlisted personnel, who faced the massive German onslaught that threatened to turn the tide of battle in Western Europe and successfully repelled the attack with their courage and blood.
Also included are stories from German veterans of the battles, including SS soldiers, who were interviewed by the authors. Written with wit, verve and heart, Queen Bees is the story of a form of societal revolution, and the extraordinary women who helped it happen. In the aftermath of the First World War, the previously strict hierarchies of the British class system were weakened. For a number of ambitious, spirited women, this was the chance they needed to slip through the cracks and take their place at the top of society as the great hostesses of the time.
In an age when the place of women was uncertain, becoming a hostess was not a chore, but a career choice, and though some of the hostesses' backgrounds were surprisingly humble, their aspirations were anything but. During the inter-war years these extraordinary women ruled over London society from their dining tables and salons - entertaining everyone from the Mosleys to the Mitfords, from millionaires to maharajahs, from film stars to royalty - and their influence can still be felt today.
Par singh gerardo le lundi, septembre 4 , Humans have long been captivated by mythology and theorized about the lessons embedded in their tales. In The Ancient Mythology of Modern Science, Gregory Schrempp brings a mythologist's critical eye to popular science writing, a flourishing genre that forms a key link between science and popular consciousness. Schrempp argues that the defining and appealing characteristic of this genre is not simplification or "dumbing-down," but the attempt to parlay scientific findings into aesthetically and morally compelling visions that offer guidance for humanity.
Schrempp argues that in striving for inspirational visions, popular science invariably reproduces - with ingenious invention - the structures, strategies, and cosmic imagery that infuse traditional mythological views of the cosmos. His claim challenges the widespread tendency to separate myth and science. Schrempp considers both the intellectual history of mythography and concrete examples from world mythologies including ancient Greek, Oceanic, and Native American.

In a world informed, transformed, and sometimes mesmerized by science, this book offers the first in-depth study of popular science writing from a mythologist's perspective.

Sonia was sitting on the porch in the afternoon, browsing through a fashion magazine when her cellphone rang. She laid in bed sleepless that night, wondering why he would ask for her, after all this time, not one phone call, no care or concern for her, knowing she had been so young and had given up everything for him.
Her friend had told her he was married so there was nothing left between them, all gone, only the memories of the two years they had spent together. Those memories had become blurred when she met Arun and now, the time spent with him was what stayed fresh in her mind. The next morning she opened her beauty salon, putting her mind on work and business for the day. Today she was standing strong through her hard work and merit recognized in the world of beauty and fashion.
She listened, not responding much, her emotions displaying no interest, except for the tamed anger she was feeling within. Her first love was lost somewhere in the marsh lands of no return as she waited for another. He opened his arms and she ran to him, not tossed by the waves now but by herself and hugged him, crying, for all the days and night she had waited to feel the comfort of his embrace and invigorating masculine scent.
While hard facts on and about those two periods are slow in surfacing, many of our imaginative writers have taken liberty to reconstruct, oftentimes romanticising the past. Here are two examples by writers that speak to the humanity of people in bondage. It is a tragic love triangle story among Dilloo, his wife Lutchmee and Hunoomaun played out against the planning of an armed rebellion by the indentured labourers. In the end, Dilloo thrashed Hanoomaun in a stick fight where the latter succumbed to his injuries.
Later Dilloo also died, in the arms of Lutchmee. This is first verse of the poem runs: This tale goes back to far off days Which none would wish to see,. Rose was the daughter of the estate owner.

Rose did not buy his reason so they eloped. But Missy Rose who knew the lead hound was able to subdue the pack and to talk to her father, defending her action and to defend Peter. The upshot was the father accepted the situation, offering his blessing to the union of the enslaved Peter and his daughter Rose.
And our scholars and creative writers will reconstruct those stories for us as time goes by and sooner rather than later as more leads become evident. But for now, the above stories must be read as love in the time of bondage. Responses to this author telephone or email: oraltradition yahoo.

Standing from left, at Award ceremony, are: Dr. Kenneth Saunders; Reverend Dr. Ramesh, who was recently on vacation in Guyana, related that in , the first time he left Guyana for the United States, he was caught but got through on his second attempt in the same year.
Elaborating on his first attempt, the one-time East Coast Demerara resident related that the journey was fraught with danger and punctuated with errors and even though he held his nerves, he was eventually caught. All of this, he said, was done through role play, which was repeated over and over again to attain perfection.
This, he related, was the key aspect of the plan. He said cosmetic makeover was also an integral part of the business, as most persons going backtrack were first given TT passports, and they had to look like the person on the passport. One guy, whom he said was from Enterprise, East Coast. Demerara, when he reached the counter, presented his US backtrack visa instead of the one from TT. Wha a da? And when the inquiry. According to him, he was jailed for four days in a self-contained cell and was served three square meals per day with snacks.
This treatment, he said, was better than when he was a free man in Guyana. They did report the matter as advised. He said they never got back their monies, but also never. The now US citizen said he was behind the guy, and he saw him take a long pause and looked back, with all attention turned to the persons in the line. And filled with fear, he panicked and began pointing out the others, one by one, with some loudly claiming ignorance to avoid embarrassment.
He recalled that all of his 16 comrades were deported to Guyana the next day, and he boarded a flight to Barbados, then to Antigua, but was caught there when he panicked after he was asked where or with whom he would have been staying. Ramesh also related that the backtrackers, whom he knew, on average used to transport at least persons per year. According to reliable sources, during the period to , thousands of Guyanese were backtracked to the US. He said after various readings, the priest told him that he would succeed on his second attempt, but will have to perform a number of pujas, and he complied.
The now computer technician and father of two said he took a flight at the Timehri International Airport now the Cheddi Jagan International Airport to Suriname and on switching his passport there, he got through, and was picked up by a relative at a US airport. Six months after, he said he got married and became a US citizen. Neither did Millicent. All she wanted to do was mourn the sudden death of her great aunt and get on with the next thing to follow; any other business. You see, the day before, Millie got news of the demise of her great aunt Maude.
Millicent took instant interest. She would pay her last respects in the traditional way with a heart rending mourning performance. Now, Millie did not know her relative personally. She had been told of her once or twice but never took any notice, not even when the lonely old lady had requested a visit from her. This happened when Millie was younger and she had kept her distance. It seemed that the old girl had requested to be buried in the village where she grew up.
This community was in a remote seaside village miles away from the city. But under these unique circumstances she was compelled to make the sacrifice. After all, the means would justify the end. Millicent travelled three hours by bus to Sand Hills. When she arrived she hurried to the church. Sure enough there was the funeral service taking place. Before entering the church, she got ready for the performance of her life.
Looking distraught and dainty, she stepped into the church whimpering. This graduated to crying and loud moans. These soon gave way to lawless screaming and bawling. The simple, quiet service had just begun when a crying, hysterical woman charged in. Hesitantly and a bit puzzled the preacher continued. All heads in the small gathering swiveled to look at this new and rather interesting scene. Without a glance in the casket at the front of the church, the crying woman deposited her plump and supple frame on the floor at the foot of the dead.
The howl rang through the small, cold building. She repeatedly blew her nose noisily into a large red handkerchief with which she managed to keep most of her face hidden. The surprise and puzzlement of all the other attendees was understandable. You see, no one was mourning because none present liked the deceased, who in life hated everyone of them. The deceased was a miserable, crotchety old man who got pleasure out of making others unhappy. When he died there was a huge collective sigh of relief.
He died a pauper so people cared even less. Millicent sobbed and bawled but kept a furtive eye on proceedings. It was a very small group that had gathered. This did not surprise her. Maude was ninety three and had outlived all of her close friends. According to the grapevine, she did not have too many acquaintances. The turnout at the funeral was proof of this. The pastor concluded the short service. May his soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed through the mercy of God, rest in peace, Amen.
Her face contorted in disbelief at what she had just heard. This must be some kind of nightmare. Struggling to her feet Millie looked into the casket. She found herself staring into the face of an old Chinese man. The unexpected change of events caused her to scream at the top of her voice. The mourning niece ignored the critical eyes. She had enough on her mind at the moment. Somehow she had managed to attend and mourn at the wrong funeral. How humiliating. What a waste of resources. But, where was Aunt Maude being buried? As soon as the pall bearers carried the body from the church the now genuinely worried mourner approached the bemused pastor.
How may I help you? She was late for such an important funeral.
Oh Lawd! She could see her inheritance swiftly slipping away. What a mess she had made of everything. She had managed to get all the vital things wrong. It was the wrong funeral, the deceased was the wrong gender, and she had arrived on the wrong day. Then the good pastor dropped the bombshell. Because her two great nieces did not show up for the funeral, the church was given all her properties. Millicent began to bawl in earnest. Tears poured down her distressed face. Pastor Creavalle was totally dumbfounded by the antics of this strange woman.
She had rudely interrupted his service earlier. She had mourned the wrong dead and now she was crying a whole day after the funeral of her great aunt whom she did not even know. But boy was he wrong. She was not crying for great aunt Maude. She was in full mourning for lost opportunities.
By George Barclay HE accused Ivan Benson was charged summarily with the offence of unlawful wounding, and he pleaded not guilty thereto. The hearing was then postponed, and an indictable charge of felonious wounding was later instituted against Benson with respect to the same facts. He was thereafter committed to stand trial on the indictable charge of felonious wounding, and the summary charge was thereafter withdrawn.
The accused was subsequently indicted for wounding with intent and unlawful wounding. The plea of autrefois acquit, which means the accused was contending that he had already been tried for the same offence, was successful because the magistrate had, at the. Further, such dismissal, having resulted from the offering of no evidence amounted to a dismissal. The plea of autrefois acquit, which means the accused was contending that he had already been tried for the same offence, was successful because the magistrate had, at the summary trial, indicated on the case jacket that the matter had been withdrawn, which the trial judge at the Assizes found tantamount to a dismissal on the merits of the summary charge.
At the Criminal Assizes, presiding Judge Mr. Guya Persaud upheld the plea of autrefois acquit and freed the accused. The plea of autrefois acquit was upheld. Haynes, Q. Persaud appeared for the defence. While the summary charge was still pending, the preliminary [inquiry] into the indictable charge was heard, and the accused was committed for trial, on the 6th September, Such a recognition would involve acknowledging and heeding the entire cosmopolitan history and culture of Guyana, going all the way back to its Amerindian, Dutch, and French foundation of over two hundred years, prior to British succession.
In fact, if Swan's interpretations and definitions of the society, and citizens he encountered in British Guiana, are intended to be heeded or followed by Guyanese today, no national culture would EVER emerge there; only the preserved repetitive cultures of six separate ethnicities, who perhaps could easily be stimulated towards various forms of overt and covert bigotry, divided loyalties, and ethnic favouritism, when the need is perceived to arise.

Roopkund is a high altitude glacial lake in Uttarakhand state of India, lies in the lap of Trishul massif and famous due to hundreds of human skeletons found at the edge of the lake. Every year, when the snow melts, one can see hundreds of scattered skulls. The skeletons were first found by a British forest guard in Initially, it was believed that the skeletons were those of Japanese soldiers who had died while crossing that route during World War II.
But scientists have now found out that the skeletons were of pilgrims and locals as the bodies dated to around AD. Sailing stones, sliding rocks, and moving rocks all refer to a geological phenomenon where rocks move in long tracks along a smooth valley floor without human or animal intervention. They have been recorded and studied in a number of places around Racetrack Playa, Death Valley, where the number and length of travel grooves are notable.
The force behind their movement is not confirmed and is the subject of research. Some stones make linear turns others make oval turns while others create a wavy shape on their tracks. No one has ever seen them move and nobody knows the speed they move with. The mysterious sailing stones of Death Valley turn while they are sliding through the flat leveled valley and this leaves different tracks behind them.
Some stones move further than others over two to five years. The mummy, identified as that of monk Sangha Tenzin, was found inside a tomb at Ghuen village in the cold and remote Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh, about meters above sea level. In an earthquake in northern India opened an old tomb containing the mummified body of monk Sangha Tenzin. In , the local police excavated the tomb and removed the mummy. The mummy is remarkably well preserved, with skin intact and hair on his head.
He died in the seated position, with a rope around the neck and thighs an esoteric practice recorded in few Buddhist documents. Victor Mair, a consulting scholar at the University of Pennsylvania, Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology, was quoted as saying the mummy was at least years old. According to the report, the mummy is remarkably well preserved for its age.
Its skin is unbroken and there is hair on the head. The mummy of Sangha Tenzin is now on display in a temple in Gue, two miles from where he was excavated, in the Himachal Pradesh region of India, bordering Tibet. Controlled by the Indo-Tibetan Border Police and isolated in the Himalayas, the town is very difficult to reach. The temple where the mummy rests is open to the public.

The iron pillar is one of the world's foremost metallurgical curiosities. The pillar, almost seven meters high and weighing more than six tonnes, was erected by Chandragupta II Vikramaditya CE. The pillar bears an inscription which states that it was erected as a flagstaff in honour of the Hindu god, Vishnu, and in the memory of the Gupta King Chandragupta II Also, it was confirmed that the temperatures required.

He needs a network where he can share his thoughts, feelings, etc. Everybody is busy with their own lifestyle. Today, social networking has become online rather than offline. People are more interested to communicate online rather than visiting their places. People feel happy to receive an email rather than hearing a human voice or meeting face to face. It feels as if real relationships are under threat. So far there have been more than 20 million unique visitors, sharing nearly one billion items every day. Why do we need yet another social network? Unlike previous social networks, which have been created from primitive digital platforms-such as list-serves, message boards, blogs and even the Harvard Facebook-Google wants to start from scratch.
The new social network also makes it easier for groups to interact. The Hangout feature, for instance, allows users to communicate in video chats, as if they were sharing an actual physical space. The hope is that these software tweaks will make the site feel more realistic, more like a dinner party and less like a Listserv. First there was the telephone, which was supposed to reduce demand for communication in person.
The same was said of faxes and then email. In the late s, when dot-com fever was at its peak, many technology enthusiasts predicted that cities would soon become obsolete, since we no longer needed to share sidewalks and cafes. Cheap bandwidth would mean the end of expensive office space. But the data shows that the opposite has occurred: Cities and face-to-face interactions have become even more valuable. After analysing more than 35, different peer-reviewed papers and mapping the location of every co-author, researchers found that scientists located closer together produced papers of significantly higher quality, at least as measured by the number of subsequent citations.
In fact, the best research. But it does suggest that we reconsider the purpose of our online networks. Instead of being a substitute for old-fashioned socialising, this network will focus on becoming a better supplement, amplifying the advantages of talking in person.
But those inefficiencies are necessary. There are many advantages and disadvantages of these social networking sites. The advantage of these networking sites is — people get connected with their friends easily even if they are far away from them. We can stay in touch with our friends and dear ones. We can even share our pictures, videos, etc, with our friends easily. This can result in serious health related problems. The online network is so large that people get absorbed in the virtual world. There is no doubt that social networking sites are replacing real life socialising, but people should always remember that real life is always true and it is safe to have friends and well-wishers in real life rather than in virtual world.

He has already seen the gut wrenching poverty in the slums of Jamaica, and he increased his donations to the poor in that country. But Business expertise alone could not alleviate the suffering and poverty of millions in Haiti, Nicaragua, Guatemala and El Salvador.

Gary and Leona Doherty began trying for children when Leona was 21 but after difficulties conceiving they consulted a medic - who delivered devastating news. Gary and Leona got involved with the Chernobyl Project, housing two children every summer. I was off work for three months.
It was hard. Leona had followed a gluten-free diet but was told after being diagnosed as coeliac she would have to begin eating normally. My temperature was down to Leona had ischemic hepatitis - acute liver failure, which can be caused by low blood. Battling for her life she forgot about conceiving and was told it would take a year to recover. Miraculously, six months later she fell pregnant.

I have been told that several new sets have been acquired during the last two months, chiefly as a result of the activities of agents from Georgetown. There is hardly any well-known make not represented in New Amsterdam. THE Health Ministry has called for public cooperation and support for a proposal to make cadavers dead bodies available for medical scientific research.
The Ministry said in a statement issued through the Information Ministry that it envisaged that bodies would be available through donations. Such donations could be made through wills, by agreement of relatives or through unclaimed bodies. The support of several organisations is being asked in this venture and the Ministry will be grateful if individuals would express their opinions and ideas on the matter, the statement said. The statement added that for some time now the Health Ministry had been seeking ways and means of improving medical research in the Caribbean region.
It said that an important aspect of preparing medical students for effective service is for medical schools to have cadavers for teaching and demonstrating purposes. The Ministry explained that the use of cadavers in medical schools is absolutely necessary in the learning of anatomy and medical students are required to dissect them in order to become totally familiar with the make-up and functioning of the human body.

Here instead of donating the entire body, the person stipulates which organ or organs are to be removed. These banks exist to provide those specific organs when necessary such as after accidents or to replace diseased organs, the Ministry said. In addition, if Guyanese are to benefit from modern medical scientific research, this is still the most effective way for students to learn so that problems suffered by mankind can be avoided. The first threat of the disease for this year occurred in May when an adult in the North West died under conditions which pointed to although not verified infection by vampire bat bite.
Since this occurrence, two children from the Aruka. About eleven days ago, another child from the North West was brought to the City and succumbed through the bites of vampire bats. The Medical Department, a spokesman said yesterday, had already taken steps to combat the outbreak of the disease and serum and vaccine have been provided by the Department for treatment in the North West.

It started last August when I broke up with my boyfriend. It suddenly became clear he had no intention of getting married. So I cut my losses. Growing up an only child with not much family, marriage and family have always been important to me. After the breakup, I started feeling life was passing me by.

I took courses and became an expert in wine. I found a personal trainer and got into great shape. I even got a boob job - no regrets there, I did it for the right reasons. I invested time and effort into improving relationships with my family and close friends. But these things left me feeling empty, like life was devoid of meaning.
The truth is, all I've ever wanted is to find love, have a family and a place to belong. I thought if I did those things, maybe love would find me. I thought everything would work out. It hasn't. Now I'm honestly afraid of spending the rest of my life alone. Everyone my age with a decent head on their shoulders has already found a partner and built a life.
Meanwhile I've spent the last 10 years in therapy, working on self-improvement, rehashing childhood trauma and overcoming intimacy issues. My therapist thinks I'm healthy emotionally and my only problem is "meeting the right one. I've had an interesting life and built a lot of character on the way. I'm smart, funny, thoughtful, attractive, affectionate, loyal,. What might 10 years of therapy prove? You can't talk, calculate or reason this into existence.
Not everyone gets what they wish for, though lots of people get what they settle for. There's no reason why I shouldn't be able to find a life partner. So what gives? People say love will find you when you aren't looking. But how do I stop looking when that's all I ever wanted?
The only solution I can come up with is spiritual. Seriously, I could use a month in India working on meditation, living in the now and releasing myself from this sadness. Obviously I'm at the apex of frustration, ranting to a random advice columnist at 2 a. You are doing all these things to find something that comes when it comes if it comes.
Many years ago we wrote that the love of two people who belong together is "a force from another dimension, like the migration of animals, the connection between friends,. You have to live in today. Are you okay today? Family isn't a guarantee. The love of your life isn't a given, as life and health aren't givens. People lose them every day. You have to find a way to accept what you have.
It's true that love will find you when you are not looking, but you are still looking out of the corner of your eye.
