Ades Web Magazine: Cambodia

By: Manuel Balossi

You need two days to visit the entire complex thoroughly. So start with the Petit Circuit and then proceed to the Grand Circuit and you will admire, in no hurry, this incredible place. You can rent a car (with driver: never drive by yourself in South-eastern Asia), a small bike, a bicycle or a tuk-tuk: prices change every year so it’s useless to list them. In sunny days it’s very hot: street vendors are everywhere and finding a bottle of water is never a problem.

A Dictionary of the Hawaiian Language

By: Lorrin Andrews

It was the intention of the author of this volume to make some extended remarks concerning the character, peculiarities and extent of the hawaiian language, by way of preface or introduction; but the want of physical strength, and especially of mental energy, has induced him to forego such an attempt and be contented with a mere history of the manner in which this dictionary has come into existence. The history of hawaiian lexicography is short.

Hawaiian is but a dialect of the great Polynesian language, which is spoken with extraordinary uniformity over all the numerous islands of the Pacific Ocean between New Zealand and Hawaii. Again, the Polynesian language is but one member of that wide-spread family of languages, known as the Malayo-Polynesian or Oceanic family, which extends from Madagascar to the Hawaiian Islands, and from New Zealand to Formosa. The Hawaiian dialect is peculiarly interesting to the...

French Natural Remedies & Recipes from Beautiful Tasmania

By: Christiane Guise

The remote upper Liffey Valley is a natural herb garden. Beneath the great rock cliffs of Taytitikitheeker (Drys Bluff) and along the Tellerpanger (Liffey River) is a kaleidoscope of forests, ferneries, shrubberies, mosses and fungi. The native heart berries and the pepper brushes, the mountain cresses and the tiny sweet ?cherries? of the ancient ecosystem, give way in the farmlands to mint, hawthorn and briar, and the organic herb farms brought with great care from other continents.

The Baobab that Opened Its Heart

The stories in this collection were all written with the love of nature, of people, and specifically with children in mind. They all share the desire to tell nature’s tale of unity, connectedness, and love.

Annals, From the Death of the Divine Augustus

By: Cornelius Tacitus

The Annals was Tacitus's final work, covering the period from the death of Augustus Caesar in the year 14. He wrote at least 16 books, but books 7-10 and parts of books 5, 6, 11 and 16 are missing. Book 6 ends with the death of Tiberius and books 7-12 presumably covered the reigns of Caligula and Claudius. The remaining books cover the reign of Nero, perhaps until his death in June 68 or until the end of that year, to connect with the Histories. The second half of book 1...

Es ist gewiss ein wunderbares Ereigniss, dass am Ende des Zeitraums der romischen Litteratur, welcher zwar viel des Geistreichen und Vorzuglichen, aber noch mehr Verrungen hervorgebracht hat, in weichem sich neben der sittlichen Versukenbeit eine grosse Verweichlichung und Entkraflung auch in der Litteratur zeight und nach welchem der entschiedene Verfall der romischen Lutteratur beginnt, ein Schrifsteller auftritt, der zu den ausgezeichnetsten und grossartigsten Erschei...

A Vocabulary of Words in the Hawaiian Language

By: Lahainaluna

Perhaps the Sandwich Island’s Mission owes an apology to the literary world for having reduced to writing a language of such variety and extent as the Hawaiian, and published so many books on it, without having given any account either of the genius, structure or peculiarities of the language. Many reasons, however, exist why so little has been done in this respect. The want of leisure in any member of the Mission for setting down to labors purely literary, is one reason...
