The Beatles

topic

The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon , Paul McCartney , George Harrison and Ringo Starr , they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential act of the rock era. Rooted in skiffle , beat and 1950s rock and roll , the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles , ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock , often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963 their enormous popularity first emerged as " Beatlemania ", and as the group's music grew in sophistication in subsequent years, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney , they came to be perceived as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the counterculture of the 1960s . The Beatles built their reputation playing clubs in Liverpool and Hamburg over a three-year period from 1960, with Stuart Sutcliffe initially serving as bass player. The core of Lennon, McCartney and Harrison went throug

The Man from Earth

topic

The Man from Earth is a 2007 American drama science fiction film written by Jerome Bixby and directed by Richard Schenkman . It stars David Lee Smith as John Oldman, the protagonist. The screenplay was conceived by Jerome Bixby in the early 1960s and completed on his deathbed in April 1998. The film gained recognition in part for being widely distributed through Internet peer-to-peer networks, which raised its profile. The film was later adapted by Schenkman into a stage play of the same name. The plot focuses on John Oldman, a departing university professor, who claims to be a Cro-Magnon (or Magdalenian caveman) who has secretly survived for more than 14,000 years. The entire film is set in and around Oldman's house during his farewell party and is composed almost entirely of dialogue. The plot advances through intellectual arguments between Oldman and his fellow faculty members.

Theoretical ecology

topic

Life on Earth-Flow of Energy and Entropy Theoretical ecology is the scientific discipline devoted to the study of ecological systems using theoretical methods such as simple conceptual models , mathematical models , computational simulations , and advanced data analysis . Effective models improve understanding of the natural world by revealing how the dynamics of species populations are often based on fundamental biological conditions and processes. Further, the field aims to unify a diverse range of empirical observations by assuming that common, mechanistic processes generate observable phenomena across species and ecological environments. Based on biologically realistic assumptions, theoretical ecologists are able to uncover novel, non-intuitive insights about natural processes. Theoretical results are often verified by empirical and observational studies, revealing the power of theoretical methods in both predicting and understanding the noisy, diverse biological world.

Stanley Rose

Stanley Rose (December 5, 1899 – October 17, 1954) was an American bookseller, literary agent and raconteur whose eponymous Hollywood bookshop, located (from 1935 until its closure in 1939) adjacent to the famous Musso & Frank Grill restaurant, was a gathering place for writers working or living in and around Hollywood. Rose’s most notable literary associates were William Saroyan , to whom he was variously a friend, a drinking and hunting companion, and a literary representative; and Nathanael West , whose 1939 novel The Day of the Locust owed much of its “local color” to its author’s acquaintance with Rose. Background and early career as a bookseller Stanley Rose was born in Matador, Texas . He served in the United States Army during World War I, and was said to have received an injury to his throat that necessitated treatment at a veterans’ hospital in Palo Alto, California, near Stanford University—from which, according to historian Kevin Starr, Rose “absorbed the atmosphere of books as if by osmosis.

Yan Tan Tethera

topic

Yan Tan Tethera is a sheep-counting rhyme/system traditionally used by shepherds in Northern England and earlier in some other parts of England and the British Isles. Until the Industrial Revolution , the use of traditional number systems was common among shepherds, especially in the dales of the Lake District . The Yan Tan Tethera system was also used for counting stitches in knitting. The words derive from a Brythonic Celtic language. Though most of these number systems fell out of use by 1910, some are still in use. The word yan or yen for "one" in some northern English dialects generally represents a regular development in Northern English in which the Old English long vowel was broken into /ie/, /ia/ and so on. This explains the shift to yan and ane from the Old English ān, which is itself derived from the Proto-Germanic *ainaz. Another example of this development is the Northern English word for "home", hame, which has forms such as hyem, yem and yam all deriving from the Old English hām. Importance

Indian Distinguished Service Medal

topic

The Indian Distinguished Service Medal ( IDSM ) was a military decoration awarded by the British Empire to Indian citizens serving in the Indian armed forces and police. When it was instituted in 1907 it was the second highest award available to Indians, behind the Indian Order of Merit, however, when eligibility for the Victoria Cross was extended to cover all Commonwealth subjects in 1911, the IDSM became third highest in the order of precedence. It was instituted in order to recognise acts of gallantry that did not meet the standards required of the IOM. Following the Partition and subsequent independence of India in 1947, it was decided to discontinue the award. Upon being instituted the medal was only available to members of the British Indian Army , Indian State Forces , militias and levies, however, after 1917 it was extended to 'non-combatant' followers, such as carriers and grooms. In 1929 eligibility was extended to the Royal Indian Marine and to the Indian Air Force in 1940. There were four versio

I made a detailed review on Joseph Page. I noticed that my review stayed posted until "brother" Carlos Oliveira's responded to my complaints on his video ministry." Then when I returned to Joseph Page, my review was already deleted...cover up. When you see that a has NO NEGATIVE reviews this should be suspicisuspicious, because naturally there should be differing opinions. The world of God is clear and firm on God's instruction to Christians and church leaders, including ministry leaders. It is not truthful to hide any unflattering review of about any minister. God calls Christiand and church elders to correct bad christian leadershio, not cover it up. God gives Christian's huge amounts of scriptures that relate to how God tells Christians to choose Pastors, how God instructs Pastors to behave, and how God instructs Christians to correct elders of the church who are sinning. God put so much emphasis on lying, slander, anger without a cause, refusal to admit when wrong..not assuming responsibility, violence through words and speech...Exodus 16:28, Exodus 20:16, and 23:1.1Peter 5:31Tim. 3:2. Titus 1:8, 1 Timothy 3:2, ect, ect.. The Bible instructs Christians on how to corrects elders in violation of God's instructions in 1 Timothy 5:19 - 20 and Mathew 18:15 - 18. Despite the copious amounts of bible instructions from Lord Jehovah and His Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, "brother" Carlos Oliveira continued for years willfully, deliberately commiting these sins, in particular against a homeless disabled female veteran who called Carlos for help. In return Carlos did offer a lot of instruction and he did other 30 minute prayer CD for $50, and did make several supportive encouraging phonecalls. However, when he sent me to local "ministry" partners, one local church told me that they local did deliverance prayer and refused to say why and refused any and all ministry services including even prayer phone call visits to see how I was doing ect. They did refer me to another church far away from any transportation and in place that I was completely unfamiliar with. Also, that ministry location has a much higher cost of living than the real estate where I currently lived around as a homeless woman. The 3rd ministry referenced did answer the phone. However, the woman was in a huge hurry. She barely spoke to me. She was very quick to tell me, "Yes, we do deliverance. Come to our church for help."

Cognitive psychology is the study of mental processes such as " attention , language use, memory , perception , problem solving, creativity , and thinking ". Much of the work derived from cognitive psychology has been integrated into various other modern disciplines of psychological study, including educational psychology , social psychology , personality psychology , abnormal psychology , developmental psychology , and economics . History Philosophically, ruminations of the human mind and its processes have been around since the times of the ancient Greeks. In 387 BCE, Plato is known to have suggested that the brain was the seat of the mental processes. In 1637, René Descartes posited that humans are born with innate ideas, and forwarded the idea of mind-body dualism , which would come to be known as substance dualism (essentially the idea that the mind and the body are two separate substances). From that time, major debates ensued through the 19th century regarding whether human thought was solely experi

Interlacing

topic

Interlaced video is a technique for doubling the perceived frame rate of a video display without consuming extra bandwidth . The interlaced signal contains two fields of a video frame captured at two different times. This enhances motion perception to the viewer, and reduces flicker by taking advantage of the phi phenomenon . This effectively doubles the time resolution (also called temporal resolution ) as compared to non-interlaced footage (for frame rates equal to field rates). Interlaced signals require a display that is natively capable of showing the individual fields in a sequential order. CRT displays and ALiS plasma displays are made for displaying interlaced signals. Interlaced scan refers to one of two common methods for "painting" a video image on an electronic display screen (the other being progressive scan ) by scanning or displaying each line or row of pixels. This technique uses two fields to create a frame. One field contains all odd-numbered lines in the image; the other contains all even-n

American Ceylon Mission

topic

The American Ceylon Mission ( ACM ) to Jaffna , Sri Lanka started with the arrival in 1813 of missionaries sponsored by the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions (ABCFM). The British colonial office in India and Ceylon restricted the Americans to the relatively small Jaffna Peninsula for geopolitical reasons for almost 40 years. The critical period of the impact of the missionaries was from the 1820s to early 20th century. During this time, they engaged in original translations from English to Tamil , printing, and publishing, establishing primary, secondary and tertiary educational institutions and providing health care for residents of the Jaffna Peninsula. These activities resulted in many social changes amongst Sri Lankan Tamils that survive even today. They also led to the attainment of a lopsided literacy level among residents in the relatively small peninsula that is cited by scholars as one of the primary factors contributing to the recently ended civil war .

Immersion baptism

topic

15th-century painting by Masaccio , Brancacci Chapel , Florence Immersion baptism (also known as baptism by immersion or baptism by submersion ) is a method of baptism that is distinguished from baptism by affusion (pouring) and by aspersion (sprinkling), sometimes without specifying whether the immersion is total or partial, but very commonly with the indication that the person baptized is immersed completely. The term is also, though less commonly, applied exclusively to modes of baptism that involve only partial immersion (see Terminology, below) Terminology Baptism by immersion is understood by some to imply submersion of the whole body beneath the surface of the water. Others speak of baptismal immersion as either complete or partial, and do not find it tautologous to describe a particular form of immersion baptism as "full" or "total". Still others use the term "immersion baptism" to mean a merely partial immersion by dipping the head in the water or by pouring water over the

Oil-lamp clock

topic

18th Century oil-lamp clock Oil-lamp clocks are clocks consisting of a graduated glass reservoir to hold oil - usually whale oil , which burned cleanly and evenly - supplying the fuel for a built-in lamp. As the level in the reservoir dropped, it provided a rough measure of the passage of time . The principle behind such a time-keeping device is that it measure a quantity that either decreases or increases at a constant rate. Lamps or candles, burning fuel at a steady pace, fit this category, and as a bonus produce useful light. Hourglasses depend on the steady draining of fine sand through a small aperture. Water clocks or clepsydra measure a gain or loss of water by using drops of uniform size and frequency. The Persian fenjaan made use of the constant time it took for the sinking of a floating bowl with a hole in its underside. It is unknown when, where or in which way the oil-lamp clocks were first introduced. this clock was but mainly used in the mid of 18th century Related articles Candle clock Water cl

Miraculin

topic

Miraculin is a natural sugar substitute , a glycoprotein extracted from the fruit of Synsepalum dulcificum . The berry, also known as the miracle fruit, was first documented by explorer Chevalier des Marchais , who searched for many different fruits during a 1725 excursion to its native West Africa. Miraculin itself is not sweet . However, after the taste buds are exposed to miraculin (which binds to sweet receptors on the tongue), acidic foods which are ordinarily sour (such as citrus ) are perceived as sweet. This effect lasts up to an hour. The active substance, isolated by Prof. Kenzo Kurihara (栗原 堅三 Kurihara Kenzō), a Japanese scientist, was named miraculin after the miracle fruit when Kurihara published his work in Science in 1968. Glycoprotein structure Miraculin was first sequenced in 1989 and was found to be a glycoprotein consisting of 191 amino acids and some carbohydrate chains. Miraculin occurs as a tetramer (98.4 kDa), a combination of 4 monomers group by dimer. Within each dimer 2 miraculin g

Reflection seismology (or seismic reflection ) is a method of exploration geophysics that uses the principles of seismology to estimate the properties of the Earth 's subsurface from reflected seismic waves . The method requires a controlled seismic source of energy, such as dynamite / Tovex blast, a specialized air gun or a seismic vibrator, commonly known by the trademark name Vibroseis. Reflection seismology is similar to sonar and echolocation . This article is about surface seismic surveys; for vertical seismic profiles, see VSP . Seismic Reflection Outlines Outline of the method Seismic waves are mechanical perturbations that travel in the Earth at a speed governed by the acoustic impedance of the medium in which they are travelling. The acoustic (or seismic) impedance, Z, is defined by the equation: where V is the seismic wave velocity and ρ ( Greek rho ) is the density of the rock.

Baptism of Jesus

topic

The baptism of Jesus depicted by Almeida Júnior The baptism of Jesus is described in the gospels of Matthew , Mark and Luke . John's gospel does not directly describe Jesus ' baptism. Most modern theologians view the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist as a historical event to which a high degree of certainty can be assigned. Along with the crucifixion of Jesus , most biblical scholars view it as one of the two historically certain facts about him, and often use it as the starting point for the study of the historical Jesus . The baptism is one of the five major milestones in the gospel narrative of the life of Jesus, the others being the Transfiguration , Crucifixion , Resurrection , and Ascension . Most Christian denominations view the baptism of Jesus as an important event and a basis for the Christian rite of baptism (see also Acts 19:1-7 ). In Eastern Christianity , Jesus' baptism is commemorated on 6 January (the Julian calendar date of which corresponds to 19 January on the Gregorian calendar )

Inherently funny word

topic

Certain words have been suggested to be inherently funny . Vaudeville tradition holds that words with the letter k are funny. A 2015 study at the University of Alberta suggested that the humor of certain nonsense words can be explained by whether they seem rude, and by the property of entropy – the improbability of certain letters being used together in a word. The philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer posited that humor is a product of one's expectations being violated. Funny words in English Vaudeville lore about funny words can be found in Neil Simon 's 1972 play The Sunshine Boys , in which an aging comedian gives a lesson to his nephew on comedy, saying that words with the letter k are funny: Fifty-seven years in this business, you learn a few things. You know what words are funny and which words are not funny. Alka Seltzer is funny. You say 'Alka Seltzer' you get a laugh ... Words with 'k' in them are funny. Casey Stengel, that's a funny name.

Paragliding

topic

Paragliding is the recreational and competitive adventure sport of flying paragliders : lightweight, free-flying, foot-launched glider aircraft with no rigid primary structure. The pilot sits in a harness suspended below a fabric wing comprising a large number of interconnected baffled cells. Wing shape is maintained by the suspension lines, the pressure of air entering vents in the front of the wing, and the aerodynamic forces of the air flowing over the outside. Despite not using an engine, paraglider flights can last many hours and cover many hundreds of kilometers, though flights of one to two hours and covering some tens of kilometers are more the norm. By skillful exploitation of sources of lift , the pilot may gain height, often climbing to altitudes of a few thousand meters. History In 1952, Domina C.
