Attaining the Worlds Beyond

By: Rav Michael Laitman

In the words of Michael Laitman, "It is beyond human comprehension to understand the essence of such spiritual qualities as total altruism and love. This is for the simple reason that human beings cannot comprehend how such feelings can exist at all, as everyone seemingly requires an incentive to perform any act; without some personal gain, people are not prepared to extend themselves. That is why a quality such as altruism can only be imparted to a person from Above, an...

It is beyond human comprehension to understand the essence of such spiritual qualities as total altruism and love. Even the existence of such feelings is beyond our comprehension; we seem to require an incentive to perform any act that does not promise us some form of personal gain. That is why a quality such as altruism can only be imparted to us from Above, and only those of us who have experienced it can understand it. Rabbi Michael Laitman ...

Elfos, orcs e fuzis de assalto

By: MARCELO HIPOLITO

Este é um épico de fantasia e aventura que transcorre nas ruas de São Paulo, Brasília, Rio de Janeiro, Nova York e Washington, nos confins da floresta amazônica e sob o calor escaldante de Cuba. Caos, traições, preconceitos, esperanças e horrores emergem do encontro de povos fantásticos com pessoas comuns, do conflito entre o relativismo moral do nosso mundo e os valores absolutos do Bem e do Mal de uma estranha e perigosa terra encantada.

El silencio

By: Valentino Valentino

El silencio y sus significaciones

Existe algo más tétrico que el pánico: es el silencio. Un hombre puede aguantarlo todo, el ataque de las fuerzas de la naturaleza, el capricho de los dioses, la entropía sin control del Cosmos, pero no el insufrible silencio. En la Prehistoria, el hombre mataba a seres infinitamente superiores y más grandes que él; sometía a mamuts, osos, cisnes, buitres, para hacer flautas de sus huesos y evitar con ello el duro silencio y así ganarle la batalla. Algunos encuentran e...

Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii

By: S. M. Kamakau

In 1961 the first edition of the English translation of Samuel Kamakau's Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii was published by Kamehameha Schools Press. Many contributed to make its publication possible. A group of Hawaiian scholars was first selected by the trustees of Bishop Museum to translate Kamakau's florid literary style into readable English. The group included Mary Kawena Pukui, Thomas G. Thrum, Lahilahi Webb, Emma Davidson Taylor, and John Wise. Mary Kawena Pukui then revie...

Many famous chiefs, mentioned in Hawaiian history, were descended from Hana-laa-nui. The ruling chiefs (noho alii) of Hawaii were of that particular lineage (mookuauhau), and with additions from those of the other islands, the genealogy of Hawaii's chiefs and their ancestors was made complete. Umi-a-Liloa [that is, Umi-son-of-Liloa] was a famous chief, and the reason for his fame was that it was he who united all of the districts of Hawaii through wars. The kingdom beca...

L’éthique des mégadonnées (Big Data) en recherche

By: Nicolae Sfetcu

Les principaux problèmes rencontrés par les scientifiques qui travaillent avec des ensembles de données massives (mégadonnées, Big Data), en soulignant les principaux problèmes éthiques, tout en tenant compte de la législation de l'Union européenne. Après une brève Introduction au Big Data, la section Technologie présente les applications spécifiques de la recherche. Il suit une approche des principales questions philosophiques spécifiques dans Aspects philosophiques, et...

Le terme big data désigne l'extraction, la manipulation et l'analyse des ensembles de données trop volumineux pour être traités de manière routinière. Pour cette raison, des logiciels spéciaux sont utilisés et, dans de nombreux cas, des ordinateurs et du matériel informatiques dédiés. Généralement, ces données sont analysées de manière statistique. Sur la base de l'analyse des données respectives, des prédictions de certains groupes de personnes ou d'autres entités sont ...

Dilemmas in Gynecology and Obstetrics : Volume 1

By: Dr. Shashank Vyankatesh Parulekar

Medicine is not a perfect science, not yet. Clinicians have been making decisions on management options for ages, based on their own experience and also on the recommendation of others, which were based on their own experiences in turn. Finally the concept of evidence-based medicine came and has taken root. However, good quality evidence is hard to come by. Hence there are quite a few areas left, where the clinician is a little confused about what to do. Often the gut in...

Η αντιστήριξη ή υποστύλωση μίας κατασκευής ή τμημάτων αυτής τα οποία έχουν υποστεί βλάβες λόγω ενός σεισμού ή οποιαδήποτε άλλης φυσικής ή ανθρωπογενούς αιτίας, είναι μία πολύπλοκή και πολυπαραγοντική διαδικασία που χρειάζεται μεγάλη προσοχή και εμπειρία, ενώ απαιτεί εξειδικευμένη γνώση των μηχανισμών αστοχίας αλλά και της στατικής συμπεριφοράς μίας κατασκευής. Η υποστύλωση ενός μικρού ανοίγματος, το οποίο μας εξασφαλίζει πρόσβαση σε εγκλωβισμένους, η υποστύλωση μιας πλάκ...

Survival Scenarios and Suggestions

By: Richard Scroggins

My primary goal is sharing the hunting and survival knowledge that I have from my experience growing up and living in the country, as well as my time in the military as an Emergency Management Specialist. I have always been interested in primitive skills, and in preserving them for the future. I also believe that the modern culture that we have built is based on a very fragile framework of technology(i.e. Electricity), that could collapse at any time due to a natural or ...

Hawaii Place Names

By: Esther Mookini

In this latest book, John Clark, author of the highly regarded "Beaches of Hawaii" series, gives us the many captivating stories behind the hundreds of Hawaii place names associated with the ocean—the names of shores, beaches, and other sites where people fish, swim, dive, surf, and paddle.

Science History of the Universe

By: Francis Rolt Wheeler

In the present volume there have been covered in a comprehensive and popular manner the various departments of Astronomy. Owing to its treatment in a definitely historical and descriptive manner, however, it may be possible to supplement the general review by a few brief statements of some of the results and problems that confront us in the actual work of the observational astronomy of to-day.

The astronomical beliefs of prehistoric man were doubt similar to those entertained by the Eskimo of the Arctic regions and the untutored tribes of Argentine' Republic, South Africa and Australia, tribes who, living only for the day, concern themselves but little with to- morrow and yesterday and care nothing about the universe...
