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...

Kahea Loko

By: The Pacific American Foundation

Kahea Loko is "the call of the pond. " From the ocean currents surging through the stone-walled channels to the excited cries of haumana (students) discovering fishpond life, the loko ia (fishpond) calls to us in many ways. From the broad perspective of the ahupuaa (major land division), the loko ia helps us to appreciate the connection between land and sea and to experience the rhythm of tides and seasons. From an intimate perspective, the pond leads us to discover h...

"Let that which is unknown become known. " John Papa Ii (1959) Let us not allow the broken walls of the loko ia (fishponds) to separate us from that which was known and practiced in the past. The foundations of the walls are still evident, as are the wisdom and knowledge of our kupuna. The reflections of the sun, moon, and stars upon our waters are as old as time. Let these be beacons of light to guide our haumana (students) to these ponds of knowledge. Let us help ...

For each particular application, one selects the most appropriate fusion space and fusion model, then the rules, and algorithms of implementation. We are working in the Unification of the Fusion Theories and Rules (UFTR), which looks like a co...

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 ...

La Transformación

Considerar las informaciones, no como un servicio retórico de palabras, sonidos e imágenes amontonadas, sino como un servicio de mensajes, que se elaboran aportando noticias, daros, opiniones, como alimento intelectual, moral y espiritual para la vida de las personas. Ello requiere de una sólida preparación profesional, más allá de lo empírico, recalificando el rol profesional en la dimensión de un operador cultural, líder y gesto y de las informaciones, autónomo y au...

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 ...

Department G

By: Kevin Wade Johnson

They were left to the study of academics, relegated to the realm of literary criticism. They were dismissed as creations of a poet, remnants of an ancient literary tradition. But they were more than that, far more. Grendel and his mother were living creatures. And they were more than relics. We know, because their descendants live today. We just don't think of them as Grendels anymore. We lump them in with serial killers. And we dismiss any hint of supernatur...

…one, accursed, in man’s guise trod the misery-track of exile, though huger than human bulk. -Gummere, 1351-1354 "This heat is horrid," Butch muttered. I eyed her. We were crouched under camo cloths between a couple of half-dead acacia bushes in an arid, sandy plain, half a mile from a dusty ranch house, the sun beating down on us all. Half an hour ago, my phone had put the West Texas heat at well over 100 degrees. Nothing moved but a loose shutter on the h...
