It was the best of times; it was the worst of times.

Guide to Newspapers of Hawaii, 1834-2000

By: Helen G. Chapin

The newspapers of Hawaii form a unique role in the history of Hawaii and of American journalism. In a period of 165 years, from 1834, when American Protestant missionaries introduced the Hawaiian language Lama Hawaii (Hawaiian Luminary), to the present, newspapers have spanned the history of Hawaii from its status as an independent nation, a republic, and a U. S. territory, to its position as a state. By newspapers, I mean publications that have titles and mastheads,...

There are several ways to classify newspapers. In Shaping History: The Role of Newspapers in Hawaii (University of Hawaii Press, 1996), I placed newspapers within four major categories: establishment, opposition (or alternative), official, and independent. Establishment papers represent the mainstream or dominant power. Alternative or opposition publications voice anti-establishment or countervailing views. Official papers, the third type, are sponsored by government...

Guide for Hindu Missionaries

By: Siddhant Bhartee

Hinduism is the oldest faith in the world. It is also the largest faith in the world with followers worldwide but as Hinduism does not believe in official conversion, there is no record to prove this. We have seen a sustained movement against Hinduism in Bharat (India) recently by Communists, Liberals, Secularists who have aligned with the Islamists and Christian-missionaries against the last bastion of truth in the world. This pamphlet aims at providing an ideological b...

I.Conversion 1. Messaging - Hinduism to the neophyte is vast and confusing. Too many branches of philosophy for the intellectual seeker. Too many gods for the literal seeker. To make it simple, the message needs to be condensed to a single sentence. “Say ‘Krishna’ 4 times with complete love today and He will forgive every sin you do today.” It’s a masterstroke. “Say ‘Krishna’ 4 times with complete love and He will forgive every sin you do today...

Leopardi and Schopenhauer : an English translation of "Leonardi e ...

By: Francesco De Sanctis; Thomas Haskell Simpson

possibly the first English translation of this interesting work by great literary critic Francesco De Sanctis, one of the fathers of the Italian national independence movement, later the young nation's Minister of Public Instruction, and author of a crucial history of Italian literature.

"...Hegel is the greatest sinner, because the public’s head can't make room for intellectual intuition. With his dialectical process, Hegel gave an appearance of harmony to this philosophical monstrosity. He was its designer and architect, making the original sin durable. So Schopenhauer tore him to pieces. Charlatan, insipid, stupid, nauseating, an ignoramus whose shamelessness was touted as wisdom by cowardly followers; the true author of our century’s intellectua...

అప్రాశ్యులు

By: Bhimeswara Challa

This surrealistic Telugu novel bringing out, through its complex characters, the often colliding raw passions and naked urges innate to the human condition.

ఆకాశానికి నిచ్చెన వేయ ప్రయత్నించటం ఎంతటి అవివేకమో అందరికీ సుగ్రాహ్యమే. అయినా అప్పుడప్పుడు మనమంతా ఆలా ప్రయత్నిస్తూనే వుంటాము. అది ఎంతో హాస్యాస్పదమయినా ఆ ఆలోచనలో వుండే మకరందాన్ని మనమంతా కాంక్షిస్తాము. ఎందుకంటేఆ ఆలోచన ఆహ్లాదకరమయినప్పుడు దానిని బలవంతంగా, ప్రయత్నపూర్వకంగా ఎందుకు బహిష్కరించాలి? అసంభవమయిన ఆలోచనలతో తెచ్చుకొన్న చిరునవ్వు, నిజమైన నిష్కల్మషమైన కన్నీరు కన్నా వున్నతమైనవంటే నేను అంగీకరించను. ఎందుకంటే ఆత్మవంచనకన్నా ఆత్మహత్య ఉన్నతమైనది. జీవితంలోని అనివార్యమైన దుఃఖాన్ని,...

Addendum to Evolution : Origins of the World : Origins of the World

By: BS Murthy

This is a speculative theory about the origins of the world and the evolution of humans and other species as well as vegetation on earth.

Creation vs. Evolution ‘One might approach this postulation as an addendum to evolution for it comes in the wake of the great works of the past. It would seem logical that any proposition about evolution cannot bypass the idea of creation, buttressed with a religious belief by those closer to the beginnings of life. Just the same, though all religions propagate the word that God created the world, nevertheless their scriptures differ about the way he went about it. Give...

Two Hundred Years of Tyranny

By: Matt R. Erickson

The hour is late and the Republic is in trouble. Conservatives have lost their faith in the enumerated powers listed in the U.S. Constitution that may be implemented only using necessary and proper means, by those swearing an oath to support the Constitution. Instead, patriots have sadly put all their political-minded efforts into voting and elections—majority rule Democracy—because they listened to their political opponents claim that election winners may rule untouch...
