...to crosstalk Hello Peter I'm sure you realise how significant RT, Aljazeera and others have contributed to history and democracy by having the wisdom to speak the TRUTH. Most reasonable persons throughout the world are astounded by the arrogance and and condescending attitude of the USA decision makers have toward International Law and Democracy, considering themselves "exceptional" being more important than any other. The US continually pretends to have respect for democracy and human rights when it is more then blatantly obvious by the chronic behavior that this is their least concern when their ideology or hegemony comes under pressure. We hear from constantly Americans that they wish to 'make America great again' but i have not heard any American including the above news agencies get it right as to what they need to do to be successful in that endeavor. To be come Great a country cannot be assessed and proclaim Great by its own citizens but only by external assessment, if America declares itself Great it is just more of the self exceptionalism. The assessment of America being Great will only come when it adheres to common morality which it sadly lacks today I'll list below most of the corrections needed to be made for America to have the remotest chance of becoming Great and respected by the thinking world. 1) The most important of all is its many failings is its outrageous Hippocracy and Double Standards and lack of self assessment A typical example, among many, is its demand for human rights from others such as Africans while the US and Israel routinely violate and commit obvious gross violations themselves with total immunity, 2) Adherence to International Law has no consideration to the US decision makers.The world has lost respect for the US and its lack of wisdom by its decision makers. Trump the other day had the UN gagging when he said "US is a peace loving nation that does not seek to impose its will on anyone" what planet is he living on. Tell that to the 87 sovereign countries that has has its leaders assassinated or disposed so as to insert US policies US foreign policies are most akin to a 16 year old child soldier from Africa with an M16 deciding who lives and who dies. The obvious US mantra is "might is right" and "violence solve everything 3) US military should cease being the weapon of Israel's foreign policy A major blot on US credibility. 4) The legal bribing of politicians (Citizens United) disguised as political donations These points listed above are the minimum reforms need for the US to recover international respect Dr John Spurge ND Naturopath Australia

Anne Hathaway's Cottage

topic

Anne Hathaway's Cottage is a twelve-roomed farmhouse where Anne Hathaway , the wife of William Shakespeare , lived as a child in the village of Shottery , Warwickshire , England , about 1 mile (1.6 km) west of Stratford-upon-Avon . Spacious, and with several bedrooms, it is now set in extensive gardens. The earliest part of the house was built prior to the 15th century; the higher part is 17th century. The house was known as Hewlands Farm in Shakespeare's day and had more than 90 acres (36 hectares) of land attached to it; to call it a cottage is really a misnomer, as it is much larger than the term usually means. As in many houses of the period, it has multiple chimneys to spread the heat evenly throughout the house during winter. The largest chimney was used for cooking. It also has visible timber framing , typical of vernacular Tudor architecture . After the death of Hathaway's father, the cottage was owned by her brother Bartholomew, and was passed down the Hathaway family until 1846, when financial probl

Haplogroup G-FGC7535 , also known as Haplogroup G2a1 (and formerly G-L293), is a Y-chromosome haplogroup . It is an immediate descendant of G2a (G-P15), which is a primary branch of haplogroup G2 (P287). G2a1 has an extremely low frequency in almost all populations except parts of the Caucasus Mountains . In 2017, the SNP L293 was replaced by FGC7535, SK1106 and Z6552 as the defining SNPs of G2a1, due to the technical difficulty in testing for L23. Genetic features of haplogroup G2a1 Almost all G2a1 persons have a value of 10 at short tandem repeat (STR) marker DYS392. The major G2a1 subgroup typically has higher values for DYS385b, such as 16, 17 or 18, than seen in most G persons. Almost all G2a1a persons have a value of 15 or more at DYS385a, a finding which can be helpful in distinguishing G2a1a persons from non-G persons with similar marker values.

Structuralism in a general sense is a mode of thought of the 20th century, which came about in different places, at different times and in different fields. It can also be found in linguistics, anthropology, philosophy and art.

Readymades of Marcel Duchamp

topic

The readymades of Marcel Duchamp are ordinary manufactured objects that the artist selected and modified, as an antidote to what he called "retinal art". By simply choosing the object (or objects) and repositioning or joining, titling and signing it, the Found object became art. Duchamp was not interested in what he called retinal art — art that was only visual — and sought other methods of expression. As an antidote to "retinal art" he began creating readymades at a time (1914) when the term was commonly used in the United States to describe manufactured items to distinguish them from handmade goods. He selected the pieces on the basis of "visual indifference," and the selections reflect his sense of irony, humor and ambiguity: "...it was always the idea that came first, not the visual example," he said; "...a form of denying the possibility of defining art." The first definition of "readymade" appeared in André Breton and Paul Éluard 's Dictionnaire abrégé du Surréalisme: "an ordinary object elevated to t

I cited you in my article, The Curious Case of Marcel Duchamp, endnote 12. You provide details not found elsewhere. When Duchamp “contradicted himself to avoid conforming to his own taste” he was wrecking havoc with the fine tuning of sensitive mechanisms within us, the antennas by which we attune to finer things, the calibrated controls by which we apprehend the most complex understanding. No wonder ideas stopped coming and losing interest, Duchamp took to chess. Taste is who you are; once your taste is lost your ability to make art goes with it, as happened to Marcel. We could see a lesson here, of committing oneself to an attractive idea that destroys you... but what else is nihilism expected to do?

In 1959 he acquired Roseville, High Beach and converted it into a nature study centre. The borough became a pioneer in childhood environmental education, sending primary school children who often lived in working class urban areas on fortnightly visits to be taught by Speakman at Roseville and Ernie Douse and later Ken Hoy at the Jubilee Retreat.

Fountain (Duchamp)

topic

Fountain is a 1917 work produced by Marcel Duchamp . The piece was a porcelain urinal , which was signed "R.Mutt" and titled Fountain. Submitted for the exhibition of the Society of Independent Artists, in 1917, the first annual exhibition by the Society to be staged at The Grand Central Palace in New York, Fountain was rejected by the committee, even though the rules stated that all works would be accepted from artists who paid the fee. Fountain was displayed and photographed at Alfred Stieglitz 's studio, and the photo published in The Blind Man , but the original has been lost. The work is regarded by art historians and theorists of the avant-garde, such as Peter Bürger, as a major landmark in 20th-century art. Seventeen replicas commissioned by Duchamp in the 1960s now exist. Origin Marcel Duchamp arrived in the United States less than two years prior to the creation of Fountain and had become involved with Dada , an anti-rational, anti-art cultural movement, in New York City.

Sieve analysis

topic

A sieve analysis (or gradation test ) is a practice or procedure used (commonly used in civil engineering ) to assess the particle size distribution (also called gradation) of a granular material. The size distribution is often of critical importance to the way the material performs in use. A sieve analysis can be performed on any type of non-organic or organic granular materials including sands, crushed rock, clays, granite, feldspars, coal, soil, a wide range of manufactured powders, grain and seeds, down to a minimum size depending on the exact method. Being such a simple technique of particle sizing, it is probably the most common. Procedure Sieves used for gradation test. A mechanical shaker used for sieve analysis. A gradation test is performed on a sample of aggregate in a laboratory. A typical sieve analysis involves a nested column of sieves with wire mesh cloth (screen).

Except in the case of monotyping , the process is capable of producing multiples of the same piece, which is called a print . Each print produced is not considered a "copy" but rather is considered an "original". This is because typically each print varies to an extent due to variables intrinsic to the printmaking process, and also because the imagery of a print is typically not simply a reproduction of another work but rather is often a unique image designed from the start to be expressed in a particular printmaking technique.

The son of another prominent interpreter, Favre spent the late 18th century in the vicinity of Mobile and the Tombigbee River , which changed hands from French to British, and then Spanish control. He became well versed in the language and culture of the Choctaws , and was involved with several treaties between the Europeans and natives. As a young man he had a Chocktaw mistress with whom he had six known children, then at the age of 41 he was legally married in Mobile to a woman of European descent.

The Enneagram of Personality , or simply the Enneagram (from the Greek words ἐννέα [ ennéa , meaning "nine"] and γράμμα [ grámma , meaning something "written" or "drawn" ]), is a model of the human psyche which is principally understood and taught as a typology of nine interconnected personality types . Although the origins and history of many of the ideas and theories associated with the Enneagram of Personality are a matter of dispute, contemporary Enneagram understandings are principally derived from the teachings of Oscar Ichazo and Claudio Naranjo . Naranjo's theories were partly influenced by some earlier teachings of G. I. Gurdjieff . As a typology the Enneagram defines nine personality types (sometimes referred to as "enneatypes"), which are represented by the points of a geometric figure called an enneagram , which, it is believed, also indicate some of the connections between the types.

Three layers of subsurface loam; surface layer is dark brown fine sandy loam, subsurface layer is pale brown fine sandy loam, subsoil is red clay loam and sandy clay loam. Soil types by clay, silt and sand composition as used by the United States Department of Agriculture Loam is soil composed mostly of sand ( particle size > 63  µm ), silt (particle size > 2 µm), and a smaller amount of clay (particle size < 2 µm). By weight, its mineral composition is about 40–40–20% concentration of sand-silt-clay, respectively. These proportions can vary to a degree, however, and result in different types of loam soils: sandy loam, silty loam, clay loam, sandy clay loam, silty clay loam, and loam. In the USDA textural classification triangle, the only soil that is not predominantly sand, silt, or clay is called "loam". Loam soils generally contain more nutrients, moisture, and humus than sandy soils, have better drainage and infiltration of water and air than silt and clay-rich soils, and are easier to till than clay so

It is a voluntary scheme (not legally binding) similar to that for electricians run by the NICEIC , and similarly is not government-run. History It began in June 2005. It was introduced because the level of complexity required to maintain cars needed more competent technicians, from ATA-registered garages. Around 25,000 mechanics are ATA-registered.

These processes can be understood in connection with the enneagram figure, classical philosophy and what he calls "Trialectic" logic grounded in three laws of process . Ichazo says that he identified the nine ways in which a person's ego becomes fixated within the psyche at an early stage of life. For each person one of these "ego fixations" then becomes the core of a self-image around which their psychological personality develops. Each fixation is also supported at the emotional level by a particular " passion " or " vice ". The principal psychological connections between the ni

Retrograde neurotransmission

topic

Retrograde signaling in biology is a process whereby function of one part of a cell is controlled by feedback from another part of the cell, or where one cell sends reciprocal messages back to another cell that regulates it. In cell biology , retrograde signaling occurs between different subcellular organelles . A typical example in plants is retrograde signaling from the plastid to control nuclear gene expression . In neuroscience , retrograde signaling (or retrograde neurotransmission ) refers more specifically to the process by which a retrograde messenger, such as anandamide or nitric oxide , is released by a postsynaptic dendrite or cell body , and travels "backwards" across a chemical synapse to bind to the axon terminal of a presynaptic neuron . In cell biology Retrograde signalling can go from plastids to the nucleus in plants, or from mitochondria to the nucleus in yeast .

In vertebrates , it is composed of blood cells suspended in blood plasma . Plasma, which constitutes 55% of blood fluid, is mostly water (92% by volume), and contains dissipated proteins , glucose , mineral ions , hormones , carbon dioxide (plasma being the main medium for excretory product transportation), and blood cells themselves. Albumin is the main protein in plasma, and it functions to regulate the colloidal osmotic pressure of blood. The blood cells are mainly red blood cells (also called RBCs or erythrocytes), white blood cells (also called WBCs or leukocytes) and platelets (also called thrombocytes).
