In Greek mythology , Eleos ( Ancient Greek Ἔλεος m. ) was the personification of pity, mercy, clemency, and compassion (not to be mistaken for Soteria ). There is not one distinctive way to depict the goddess because she was seen as an entity rather than a person like Zeus and other popular gods and goddesses. The only factor that has stayed constant when depicted in art is that she is shown as a young woman with a blue veil or dress. The Athenians were her only worshippers. Statius states that "tears flow upon her altar", that she had no images in her likeness, and that she was only known to the needy. She was believed to be the child of Erebus and Nyx . Her brothers and sisters are thought to be: Hemera (Goddess of the day) Aither (God of light) Hypnos (God of sleep) Eris (Goddess of strife) Nemesis (Goddess of retribution) Eros (God of procreation) Apate (Goddess of deceit) Thanatos (God of non-violent death) Moros (God of doom) Momos (God of ridicule) Dolos (God of trickery) Oizys (Goddess of misery) Hy ...more...

Ferric chloride test


The ferric chloride test is used to determine the presence of phenols in a given sample or compound (for instance natural phenols in a plant extract). Enols , hydroxamic acids , oximes, and sulfinic acids give positive results as well. The bromine test is useful to confirm the result, although modern spectroscopic techniques (e.g. NMR and IR spectroscopy ) are far superior in determining the identity of the unknown. The quantity of total phenols may be spectroscopically determined by the Folin-Ciocalteau assay . Technique The sample is dissolved in water, or a mixture of water and ethanol , and a few drops of dilute ferric chloride solution is added. The formation of a red, blue, green, or purple coloration indicates the presence of phenols. Where the sample is insoluble in water, it may be dissolved in dichloromethane with a small amount of pyridine . Chemistry Phenols form a violet complex with Fe(III)+, which is intensely colored. The colour may vary from blue, green or even red depending upon the nature ...more...

List of active volcanoes in the Philippines


Active volcanoes in the Philippines , as categorized by the Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (PHIVOLCS), include volcanoes in the country having erupted within historical times (within the last 600 years), with accounts of these eruptions documented by humans; or having erupted within the last 10,000 years ( holocene ) based on analyses of datable materials.

International Standard Book Number


The International Standard Book Number ( ISBN ) is a unique numeric commercial book identifier. An ISBN is assigned to each edition and variation (except reprintings) of a book. For example, an e-book , a paperback and a hardcover edition of the same book would each have a different ISBN. The ISBN is 13 digits long if assigned on or after 1 January 2007, and 10 digits long if assigned before 2007. The method of assigning an ISBN is nation-based and varies from country to country, often depending on how large the publishing industry is within a country. The initial ISBN configuration of recognition was generated in 1967 based upon the 9-digit Standard Book Numbering ( SBN ) created in 1966. The 10-digit ISBN format was developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and was published in 1970 as international standard ISO 2108 (the SBN code can be converted to a ten digit ISBN by prefixing it with a zero). A book can be printed without a printed ISBN if it is printed privately or the aut ...more...

You Laughed and Laughed and Laughed


" You Laughed and Laughed and Laughed " is a poem by Nigerian writer Gabriel Okara . One of the most popular in his oeuvre, it is a frequent feature of anthologies, such as A New Book of African Verse edited by John Reed and Clive Wake ( Heinemann African Writers Series , 1985). "The piece belongs with the best of Senghor 's nostalgic verse," wrote Michael Echeruo in a tribute to Brutus on the occasion of his seventieth birthday, "with the militancy of many of David Diop 's lyrics, and certainly with J. P. Clark 's 'Ivbie', another of my favorite African poems. Okara's poem is more relaxed than these, however, more ironic, less tortured. In some ways, of course, it is less urgent, less strident, less involved. If Clark's 'Ivbie' was complex and for good reason, You laughed, and laughed, and laughed seemed also appropriately straightforward: proud without arrogance, hurting without showing it, and blunt without rudeness." The first of Okara's poems that it was Echeruo's pleasure to read, it was also in his o ...more...

Constitutions of Ethiopia

Until the adoption of the first of these constitutions, the concepts of Ethiopian government had been codified in the Kebra Nagast (which presented the concept that the legitimacy of the Emperor of Ethiopia was based on its asserted descent from king Solomon of ancient Israel), and the Fetha Negest (a legal code used in Ethiopia at least as early as 1450 to define the rights and responsibilities of the monarch and subjects, as defined by the Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo Church ).

X video extension


The X video extension , often abbreviated as XVideo or Xv , is a video output mechanism for the X Window System . The protocol was designed by David Carver; the specification for version 2 of the protocol was written in July 1991. It is mainly used today to resize video content in the video controller hardware in order to enlarge a given video or to watch it in full screen mode. Without XVideo, X would have to do this scaling on the main CPU. That requires a considerable amount of processing power, which could slow down or degrade the video stream; video controllers are specifically designed for this kind of computation, so can do it much more cheaply. Similarly, the X video extension can have the video controller perform color space conversions, and change the contrast, brightness, and hue of a displayed video stream. In order for this to work, three things have to come together: The video controller has to provide the required functions. The device driver software for the video controller and the X display ...more...

Perman (manga)


Perman ( パーマン Pāman) , by Fujiko Fujio , is a Japanese manga and anime about a clumsy boy, Mitsuo Suwa, who is chosen to apprentice to a powerful superhero . Although created as a parody of Superman (the name "Perman" is based on "Superman" without the "Su"), the character's creators appear to have distanced themselves from this origin story. In the comic-essay "Passionate Days of Perman" (PARマンの情熱的な日々), Fujiko F. Fujio claims the name is actually a reference to the "par" concept in golf. In addition, due to copyright concerns, the name of Mitsuo's boss was later changed from "Superman" to "Birdman". It is also a comic series in Ninja Hattori ; Kenichi really enjoys reading them. The first series was serialized in Shōnen Sunday and other magazines from 1967 to 1968, and the second was serialized in CoroCoro Comic from 1983 to 1986. The first anime series was first produced in black and white in 1967. It was remade in color in 1983 and films were released in 1983, 1984, 1985, 2003 and 2004 along with Doraemon ...more...
