How to improve your English by reading
How can reading improve your English? What reading strategies can you use to improve your vocabulary, pronunciation, fluency, and enunciation? In this instructional and motivational video, I tell you how picking up a book can not only help you to improve your vocabulary but your speaking confidence and presentation skills as well. Watch the lesson, and let me know some of your favourite books in the comments section! https://www.engvid.com/how-to-improve-your-english-by-reading/ TRANSCRIPT Hey, everyone. I'm Alex. Thanks for clicking, and welcome to this lesson on "How to Improve Your English By Reading". So, it might be very obvious how reading can help you improve, you know, your speaking in English, particularly your vocabulary, but there are a number of reasons and a number of things that reading regularly and reading in specific ways can actually help you to improve your English, and also not only like your reading English, but your ability to speak properly or to speak confidently. And again, this applies not only to English as a second language learners, but also to English speakers, period. So pick up a book, and here's how picking up a book can help you to improve your English. So, number one: You can improve your English by picking up any book, reading out loud, and exaggerating what you're reading. You might think: "This sounds ridiculous", but if you are a second language learner, this is a fantastic way to improve your enunciation, your pronunciation, and presentation skills. Even if you're not a second language learner... English as a second language learner. So, for example, it doesn't matter what type of genre you like, what type of books you like. Me, personally, I love science-fiction, I love fantasy. And I can turn to, you know, pages in any of these books and read out loud, exaggerate what I'm saying, and just the act of doing this, of speaking out loud what I'm reading makes me feel, again, more confident speaking in front of an audience, for example. So I'll just open to a random page here and... Okay, so in this book, just so you know, there's a horse, his name is Artaq. And it says: "Artaq did not hesitate. He veered toward the Silver River. The wolves came after, soundless, fluid, black terror. Will was sure that this time they would not escape. Allanon was no longer there to help them. They were all alone." Now, what you notice is I'm... I'm trying to exaggerate: "They were all alone." Even like my l's. And focus on every letter when you're reading, because this type of reading, reading out loud, exaggerating, if you are a professional, this is a great way to build that clarity in your speech when you're speaking in front of people, and pacing yourself, how fast you speak as well is important, obviously, when you're giving a presentation. This second part... Again, this one can apply to both native speakers of English, but it's more specifically geared towards English as a second language speakers, and that is: Paying attention to word endings. And especially "ed" and "s" endings. So, specifically past tense words, like "wanted", okay? Or plural words, like "hawks" instead of one hawk, because a lot of, again, English as a second language learners sometimes forget the "ed" ending when they're reading. I've taught classes where, you know, students have to read out loud, and they're so focused on reading and getting the words correct, but the pronunciation, they just drop the ends of words sometimes, especially "ed", especially "s". So let me see if I can quickly find an example. Okay, here's one: "When he stayed on his feet..." When he... Oh, why am I pointing? You can't see that. You can't see that. So: "When he stayed on his feet" this is one part of the sentence. Again, you have the verb "stayed", so some new learners of English will sometimes read that as: "When he stay", "When he stay", and they just drop the end. So please, please, please focus on those "ed" and "s" endings, and this will really help your fluency, the ability of others to understand you, as well as your enunciation. "Stayed", okay? Number three: Pay attention to punctuation. Now, punctuation refers to the use of commas, periods, question marks, exclamation marks when you're reading. By paying attention to these things, you can actually focus on improving your intonation and your fluency; two specific things. So, the intonation refers to the up and down movement of your voice when you are saying something or reading something. So, for example, you know, raise... In the second part I said: "Raise intonation for yes or no questions." So if you notice when you're reading that, you know, this person is asking a yes or no question, then your voice should be moving up at the end. And, you know in speaking, this also improves that. So, for example, in this book there is... Okay, here's a yes or no question, the question is: "Did you find her?"

Muslim Yoga & its Controversies
Most viewers will be surprised to learn about the rapidly expanding movement among Muslims to appropriate Yoga. Teachers and Islamic experts are collaborating to modify Yoga by removing aspects seen as Hinduism, and by adding links with Islam. In this episode I analyze video clips from Muslim Yoga teachers in Pakistan, India, Canada and USA. I survey and comment on many kinds of Muslim postures toward Yoga, such as: 1. Outright rejection of Yoga, seen as shrik, meaning it is banned by Allah. 2. Attitudes of blatant Hinduphobia, even in some Western schools of Islam. 3. Demand to remove surya-namaskar because it is seen as idol worship which is banned in Islam. 4. Demand to remove Om because only Allah's name can be chanted. 5. Demand to remove all mantras because they relate to "false gods" and infidel practices. 6. Replacing silence with chanting Allah's name. 7. Chanting verses from Qur'an during the practice. 8. Claiming that Yoga was not originally Hindu, but that Hindus hijacked it into their religion. 9. Trying to unite all Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity, Islam) against features in Yoga that are "not friendly to Monotheism", and blaming these features on BJP. 10. Digesting Yoga systematically into Arabic vocabulary and claiming that it maps on to Islamic practices. My analysis in the final few minutes of the episode presents my advice to Muslims as well as to Hindu teachers.

Buddha's Picnic by Gonkar Gyatso
Buddha's Picnic by Gonkar Gyatso Join contemporary artist Gonkar Gyatso and art historian Melissa R. Kerin in a discussion about Buddha’s Picnic, an installation by Gyatso now on view at Washington and Lee University’s Staniar Gallery in Lexington, Virginia. Buddha’s Picnic is a modern shrine filled with mass-produced Buddhist devotional objects including electric prayer wheels spouting mantras in Tibetan, neon-colored Buddha statues, and flashing lotus lights. The installation provides a compelling contrast to the Tibetan Buddhist Shrine Room in the Sackler exhibition Encountering the Buddha: Art and Practice across Asia. Gonkar Gyatso is a Tibetan-born British artist (born 1961) currently living and working in Chengdu, China. He studied Chinese brush painting in Beijing and in 1984 attained a BA in traditional Tibetan scroll painting (thangka). In 2000 he earned an MA in fine art from the Chelsea College of Arts in London. Gyatso is the founder of the Sweet Tea House, a contemporary art gallery in London dedicated to showing Tibetan work. Gyatso's work has been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art; Museum of Fine Arts, Boston; Tel Aviv Museum of Art; Rubin Museum of Art; Chinese National Art Gallery; Glasgow Gallery of Modern Art; Courtauld Institute of Art; and Queensland Art Gallery and Gallery of Modern Art. Melissa R. Kerin is an art historian who works on the art and material culture of South Asia from the medieval and contemporary periods. Along with a number of articles, Kerin has authored two books, Artful Beneficence: Selections from the David Nalin Collection (Rubin Publications, 2009) and Art and Devotion at a Buddhist Temple in the Indian Himalaya (Indiana University Press, 2015), which was awarded the Edward C. Dimock, Jr. Prize in the Indian Humanities. She is currently finishing a manuscript titled Bodies of Offerings: The Materiality and Vitality of Tibetan Buddhist Shrines. Kerin holds a PhD in art history from the University of Pennsylvania and an MTS from Harvard Divinity School. Arthur M. Sackler Gallery Saturday, February 17, 2018 2PM

Say NO to double standards in medicine  (Video 7)
- Join our community here: https://peterdobias.com/pages/join-our-community - Check Dr. Dobias Natural Healing line https://peterdobias.com/collections/dr-dobias-original-products --------------------------- Today, I would like to talk to you about double standards in medicine. Not many people would argue that health is our most prized possession. However, while we lock our cars and homes and put our travel passports into safety boxes, we let others decide how to handle our and our dog’s health. We blindly entrust complete strangers to create laws and regulations that should protect our health but instead protect the interests of the conventional medical establishment. Over the last 100 or so years, our healthcare has been dominated by certain medical philosophies and treatments that involve patented drugs. Before I had renounced my veterinary licence in British Columbia I had a meeting with the Veterinary College registrar. In our conversation, I was told on how to write my veterinary articles and recommendations for you and instructed the following: I was to always offer conventional methods first and suggest natural alternatives as a second choice if the conventional methods didn’t work. I was told that my alternative recommendations had to be followed by a disclaimer that stated that these methods were not scientifically proven. (This is not always true). My objection to this was that many commonly used conventional methods were not scientifically proven and that this disclaimer requirement was a double standard. The response that I received from this was, “Yes, it is a double standard.” As you can imagine, I was surprised to hear such a reply. The registrar bluntly stated that there was a double standard in medicine! For years, I have been quiet about what has been happening in veterinary medicine out of fear of being targeted. Now that I have surrendered my license, I am freer to speak and will continue to inform you of what is going on. This situation has led to fewer holistic practitioners in practice because many veterinarians are scared to speak up against the college. The current bylaws and regulations have a detrimental effect on veterinarians’ ability to freely use safe, non-conventional drug-free methods that work. When there is a complaint or a disciplinary case against a vet, the standard is conventional medicine, and those who don’t use conventional methods are putting themselves and their license at risk. Many of these vets have huge student and clinic loans, and losing their license would lead to serious consequences. Also, under the college regulations, veterinarians are not allowed to invent a product, connect their name with a product, or share reviews and feedback on a product's website. This effectively disqualifies any clinically experienced veterinarians from innovating and moving medicine forward. As you may be aware, I have received an ultimatum to either take my name off my products and stop sharing customer reviews on my website or give up my licence. When I questioned the College as to why I was not allowed to share reviews from customers about our products, they essentially told me that they couldn’t be sure that the testimonials were true. The irony of this statement is that the walls of most veterinary clinics are covered with posters and advertisements touting the benefits of many pharmaceutical and pet food products. These ads were created by the companies that sell them, yet I was not allowed to publish uncensored reviews and feedback written by our customers. Would this be another double standard? The most important issue here is that the democracy of medicine is threatened, and so is your freedom to choose the method that is the best for your dog. I am in no way saying that conventional medicine is wrong or useless, nor am I saying that vets or companies should not be responsible for the safety of their products. I am just asking to eliminate this DOUBLE STANDARD and any intimidation aimed at myself. Regulatory bodies should be concerned about malpractice and poor practice standards instead of targeting practitioners and the products that are based on customer feedback. Our current overall rating is 4.9 out of 5 stars and our products have been offered for over six years now. We clearly pose no threat to the health of dogs. Why should I not be allowed, as an educated professional, to share my knowledge and make a difference through the products that I formulated? On a positive note, now that I have surrendered my license, I am free to speak to you about your dogs and let you know of any developments. Animal lovers and veterinarians alike should have the freedom to choose which treatment to use. You and your dog’s health are the most prized possessions, and they are worth the fight. Thank you for reading, sharing, and, most of all, caring for and loving your dog. Dr. Peter Dobias, DVM

TEDxPhiladelphia - Unintended Consequences
The moment that we recognize the impact of an unintended consequence, a new story unfolds. Ideas that arise from unintended consequences are deeply personal. An unintended consequence forces us to reassess our assumptions and challenge our narratives. Unintended Consequences is the official theme for TEDxPhiladelphia 2019. The daylong multidisciplinary conference will bring together engaging speakers, performers, and participants to share their stories and experiences of unanticipated moments, their challenges and unexpected opportunities that arose from this, and how it's shaped who they are and what they do today.
Looking After the Past: Conservation at the National Gallery, London By Larry Keith
October 11, 2016 The preservation of the National Gallery's famous collection has been a central aspect of that institution since its foundation in 1824. Larry Keith, the Gallery's Head of Conservation and Keeper, gives an overview of the rich history of conservation at the Gallery, and how its advances and controversies have informed the way the department works today. This talk will look at what happens behind the scene when conservators are charged with the preservation, study and restoration of some of the world's best-loved masterpieces. Larry Keith is the Director of Collections (interim) National Gallery, London where he has been working since 1991 – first as a paintings conservator and then as Head of Conservation in 2010. He has contributed numerous articles on painting techniques across the range of the Collection for the Gallery’s Technical Bulletin, as well as contributions to exhibition catalogues on Diego Velazquez and Leonardo da Vinci. The Behind the Scenes Lecture Series, initiated by the University of Hong Kong’s Department of Fine Arts, aims to bring high-profile speakers from the international art world to highlight the work of professionals who help to keep art accessible for audiences now and in the future. The 2016 Lectures are generously supported by Qatar Airways and AXA ART.

The Dream Of Life - Part Three - Arthur Cristian - Love For Life
In this impromptu video Arthur Cristian discusses the law and the way we are tricked into making claims over and taking responsibility for our strawman/legal person so that we put our lives under the standing of men and women whose authority we accept. Our belief systems con us into accepting "representatives" of "The System" as people who have power over us, even though we have never been asked if we agree to this. Who are you answerable to? All legal paperwork, including UCC forms are an admittance and acceptance of slave status which is why those doing all their Freeman/Sovereignty paperwork are no freer and under no more protection than the rest of us. The paperwork is also a distraction that keeps people from the remedy to their slave status. Arthur discusses how he would handle going to court and dealing with the enforcers of "The System". This video also covers the ownership of intellectual property and the curses of "The System" that are the lies of "The System" that we accept when we comply with and support the law of "The System". "The System" gives us a false sense of being on the right path while all the time we are really up against and at the mercy of the force of "The System". The only remedy to "The System" is to do away with "The System"; everything else is just a distraction that keeps us enslaved to "The System". The insights Arthur shares break the spells of "The System" for those who truly want to wake up and be part of a mass exodus from harm. In this video, Arthur is not providing legal advice. He is explaining how he would handle going to court. Anyone is welcome to use these ideas but they may not work if you are still in "The System".

Love For Life shines a light on the darkness of the world we live in so that we may all recognise that darkness and until there is nowhere left for it to hide. March 2005 - Arthur & Fiona Cristian

It is bordered by Guinea to the northeast, Liberia to the southeast and the Atlantic Ocean to the southwest. It has a tropical climate, with a diverse environment ranging from savanna to rainforests. The country has a total area of 71,740 km2 (27,699 sq mi) and a population of 7,075,641 as of the 2015 census. Sierra Leone is a constitutional republic with a directly elected president and a unicameral legislature. Sierra Leone has a dominant unitary central government. The president is the head of state and the head of government. The country's capital and largest city is Freetown. Kenema, located 185 miles from Freetown, is the country's second most populous city. Other major cities with a population above one hundred thousand are Bo, Koidu Town and Makeni. Sierra Leone is made up of five administrative regions: the Northern Province, North West Province, Eastern Province, Southern Province and the Western Area. These regions are subdivided into sixteen districts.Sierra Leone became independent from the United Kingdom on 27 April 1961, led by Sir Milton Margai, who became the country's first prime minister. In May 1962, Sierra Leone held its first general elections as an independent nation. Siaka Stevens" All People's Congress won the 1967 Sierra Leone parliamentary election over the governing Sierra Leone People's Party. Stevens ruled Sierra Leone from 1968 to 1985 in which he was intolerant of opponents and critics of his government. In 1971, Stevens abolished Sierra Leone's parliamentary government system and declared Sierra Leone a presidential republic. Sierra Leone was a one-party state from 1978 to 1985, in which Stevens' All People's Congress was the only legal political party in the country. The current constitution of Sierra Leone, which includes multi party democracy, was adopted in 1991 by the government of President Joseph Saidu Momoh, Stevens' hand-picked successor. In 1991, a rebel group known as the Revolutionary United Front led by former Sierra Leone army Corporal Foday Sankoh launched a brutal civil war in the country. In April 1992 a group of Junior military officers toppled Momoh from power and 25-year-old Captain Valentine Strasser became the head of state. In January 1996 Strasser was toppled from power by his deputy, Brigadier General Julius Maada Bio. Bio returned the country to multi-party democracy and the 1991 constitution was reestablished. Bio handed power to Ahmad Tejan Kabbah of the Sierra Leone People's Party after his victory in the 1996 Sierra Leone presidential election. In 1997, the military overthrew president Kabbah. However, in February 1998, a coalition of West African Ecowas armed forces led by Nigeria, removed the military Junta from power by force and president Kabbah was reinstated as president. In 1998, the coup leaders were executed after they were sentenced to death by a military court martial. Sierra Leone has had an uninterrupted democracy since 1998 to present. In January 2002, President Ahmad Tejan Kabbah fulfilled his campaign promise by officially ending the civil war as the rebels were defeated by military force with the help and support of Ecowas, the British government, the African Union, and the United Nations. About 16 ethnic groups inhabit Sierra Leone, each with its own language and customs. The two largest and most influential are the Temne and Mende. The Temne are predominantly found in the northwest of the country, and the Mende are predominant in the southeast. Comprising a small minority, about 2%, are the Krio people, who are descendants of freed African-American and West Indian slaves. The Krios are overwhelmingly found in the capital Freetown and its surrounding countryside. Although English is the official language, used in schools and government administration, Krio, an English-based creole, is the most widely spoken language across Sierr ...

As Prime Minister, Churchill led Britain to victory in the Second World War. Churchill represented five constituencies during his career as Member of Parliament (MP). Ideologically an economic liberal and British imperialist, he began and ended his parliamentary career as a member of the Conservative Party, which he led from 1940 to 1955, but for twenty years from 1904 he was a prominent member of the Liberal Party. Of mixed English and American parentage, Churchill was born in Oxfordshire to an aristocratic family. Joining the British Army, he saw action in British India, the Anglo–Sudan War, and the Second Boer War, gaining fame as a war correspondent and writing books about his campaigns. Elected an MP in 1900, initially as a Conservative, he defected to the Liberals in 1904. In H. H. Asquith's Liberal government, Churchill served as President of the Board of Trade, Home Secretary, and First Lord of the Admiralty, championing prison reform and workers' social security. During the First World War, he oversaw the Gallipoli Campaign; after it proved a disaster, he resigned from government and served in the Royal Scots Fusiliers on the Western Front. In 1917 he returned to government under David Lloyd George as Minister of Munitions, and was subsequently Secretary of State for War, Secretary of State for Air, then Secretary of State for the Colonies. After two years out of Parliament, he served as Chancellor of the Exchequer in Stanley Baldwin's Conservative government, returning the pound sterling in 1925 to the gold standard at its pre-war parity, a move widely seen as creating deflationary pressure on the UK economy. Out of office during the 1930s, Churchill took the lead in calling for British rearmament to counter the growing threat from Nazi Germany. At the outbreak of the Second World War, he was re-appointed First Lord of the Admiralty. Following Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain's resignation in 1940, Churchill replaced him. Churchill oversaw British involvement in the Allied war effort, resulting in victory in 1945. His wartime leadership has been widely praised; however, several of his decisions have proved controversial. After the Conservatives' defeat in the 1945 general election, he became Leader of the Opposition. Amid the developing Cold War with the Soviet Union, he publicly warned of an "iron curtain" of Soviet influence in Europe and promoted European unity. He was elected prime minister in the 1951 election. His second term was preoccupied with foreign affairs, including the Malayan Emergency, Mau Mau Uprising, Korean War and a UK-backed Iranian coup. Domestically his government emphasised house-building and developed an atomic bomb. In declining health, Churchill resigned as prime minister in 1955, although he remained an MP until 1964. Upon his death in 1965, he was given a state funeral. Widely considered one of the 20th century's most significant figures, Churchill remains popular in the UK and Western world, where he is seen as a victorious wartime leader who played an important role in defending liberal democracy from the spread of fascism. Also praised as a social reformer and writer, among his many awards was the Nobel Prize in Literature. In more recent years however, his imperialist views and comments on race, as well as his sanctioning of human rights abuses in the suppression of anti-imperialist movements seeking independence from the British Empire, have generated considerable controversy.

Ken Wilber - Buddha at the Gas Pump Interview
Discussion of this interview in the BatGap Community Facebook Group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Batgap/permalink/2497216953837423/ Also see https://batgap.com/ken-wilber/ With over two-dozen published books translated in nearly as many languages, Ken Wilber has created what is widely considered the first truly comprehensive Integral Map of human experience. By exploring and integrating the major insights and conclusions of nearly every human knowledge domain in existence, Wilber created the revolutionary AQAL Integral Framework. In short, the Integral Approach is the coherent organization, coordination, and harmonization of all of the relevant practices, methodologies, and experiences available to human beings. Wilber states: “You can’t [realistically] honor various methods and fields, without showing how they fit together. That is how to make a genuine world philosophy.” He is the founder of the nonprofit think tank Integral Institute, co-founder of the transformational learning community Integral Life, co-founder of Source Integral exploring the nature of Integral Society, and the current chancellor of Ubiquity University.

Conservation: The Most Important Purpose in the World
Shane Mahoney delivers a message about the history of conservation and the important conservation challenges we face today. http://ConservationVisions.com Shane Mahoney is widely recognized as a wildlife biologist, conservationist, and thought leader. A former employee of the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador, he served as Chief of Wildlife Research for the province from 1994-2003, when he accepted the position of Executive Director of Sustainable Development and Strategic Science. In 2001, he founded and subsequently led the Institute for Biodiversity, Ecosystem Science and Sustainability, an organization that continues to fund graduate student research at universities throughout North America and Europe. Today, Shane is the founder and CEO of Conservation Visions Inc., a private company and global wildlife initiative that has recently announced the launch of the Wild Harvest Initiative, a multi-year project that will measure and analyze the biomass of wild animal protein harvested each year by citizens of the U.S. and Canada, assessing both its nutritional and economic value, as well as the ecological and financial costs of replacing this food through standard agricultural and domestic livestock production. Shane also serves as:  Vice-Chair of the United Nations’ International Council for the Conservation of Nature’s (IUCN) Sustainable Use and Livelihoods Specialist Group (SULi) and Chair of SULi North America  North American Expert to the International Council for Game and Wildlife Conservation (CIC)  International Liaison for The Wildlife Society  Board Member of Conservation Force International  Featured Partner with Pheasants Forever/Quail Forever  Director of the High Lonesome Institute  Conservation Director at Large for Dallas Safari Club  Member of the Sustainable Use Committee for the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (AFWA) Shane continues to be a tireless worker on behalf of wildlife and biodiversity, a vocal proponent of sustainable use as a conservation practice, and a strong believer in the benefits of communicating both conservation science and hunting to the general public. He has written more than 100 popular articles that have been featured in twenty-four print magazines, as well as digitally, and his work appears regularly in such well-read publications as Sports Afield. He has appeared as host or narrator for a variety of radio and television efforts, and has collaborated with such highly regarded entities as the British Broadcasting Corporation and National Geographic to produce award-winning films. His scientific research has appeared in more than 20 peer-reviewed, academic publications, and he has offered keynote speeches, led numerous workshops, participated in endowed lectures, and presented at a host of conferences around the globe. In the fall of 2015, Shane completed work as Special Guest-Editor on his second Monograph for the International Journal of Environmental Studies (IJES); his first Monograph, Conservation and Hunting in North America, was published in 2013. Together, these Monographs represent a unique effort to portray the rich history of hunting in North America by delivering peer-reviewed, scientifically based, and historically supported evidence of hunting’s proven success as a conservation tool, thus representing a positive step forward for both the conservation and hunting communities. Also in 2015, Shane became quite engaged in the discussions sparked by the Cecil the Lion incident and, in response, produced and released a film vignette reviewing the issue and providing commentary about the realities of ecosystem and wildlife management, as well as the relationship between hunting and conservation. This short film, the first in a series that will be expanded upon in 2016, was designed to engender further meaningful dialogue amongst the hunting community and the general public. Shane is currently in the process of co-editing a multi-author volume that will become the first textbook to examine the North American Wildlife Conservation Model, another notable achievement that will be realized in 2016.
John Asmus: Optical techniques and the mysterious Mona Lisa
A lifetime in lasers began with one of Maiman's originals at Caltech, and has led this art-restoration pioneer to analyze and restore some of the world's most famous artworks. A mysterious phone call from an oil tycoon, a rendezvous in a Swiss parking garage, and a phone call to the Louvre from Walter Cronkite. These have all been a part of the fascinating story of John Asmus as he developed revolutionary techniques using photonics to authenticate and restore art. Since 1974 John Asmus has been a Research Physicist with the Institute for Pure and Applied Physical Sciences at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD). He earned his PhD from the California Institute of Technology (physics and quantum electronics) and was a co-founder of the Center for Art/Science Studies at UCSD. He has published 125 articles in professional journals and holds 25 patents. Over a 30 year period, Asmus introduced the use of holography, lasers, ultrasonic imaging, digital image processing, and nuclear magnetic resonance to art-conservation practice. He has applied these tools to the problems of divestment, analysis, interpretation, and presentation associated with diverse art-conservation activities including the Qin-Dynasty Terra Cotta Warriors of Xi'an, the Ice-Age paintings of Lascaux, and the discovery of the hidden Mona Lisa "pendant". Asmus has been instrumental in the founding of international professional societies such as Lasers for the Conservation of Artworks (LACONA) and Associazone Italiana Prove Non Distruttive. In 1990 he was a recipient of a Rolex Award for Enterprise for the restoration of the Terra Cotta Warriors. Twenty-three years ago the heirs of the late Joseph Pulitzer asked Asmus to examine a painting known as the "Isleworth Mona Lisa" that was in the family collection of fine art. This invitation was extended in response to his ten-year study of the varnishes and pentimenti of the Louvre "Mona Lisa." Asmus's studies led to the conclusion that the intricate geometrical principles employed in the two paintings were identical even though individual features are different in both size and proportion. Thus it was clear that the Isleworth portrait was not a mere copy of the painting in the Louvre. Subsequently, the Isleworth painting has passed every scientific test available in art conservation science from radiocarbon dating to digital-image age regression.

It has been variously described as "ultraconservative", "austere", "fundamentalist", or "puritan(ical)"; as an Islamic "reform movement" to restore "pure monotheistic worship" (tawhid) by devotees; and as a "deviant sectarian movement", "vile sect" and a distortion of Islam by its opponents. The term Wahhabi(ism) is often used polemically and adherents commonly reject its use, preferring to be called Salafi or muwahhid. claiming to emphasize the principle of tawhid (the "uniqueness" and "unity" of God), for exclusivity on monotheism, dismissing other Muslims as practising shirk, (idolatry). It follows the theology of Ibn Taymiyyah and the Hanbali school of jurisprudence, although Hanbali leaders renounced Abd al-Wahhab's views.Wahhabism is named after an eighteenth-century preacher and activist, Muhammad ibn Abd al-Wahhab (1703–1792). He started a reform movement in the remote, sparsely populated region of Najd, advocating a purging of such widespread Sunni practices as the veneration of saints and the visiting of their tombs and shrines, that were practiced all over the Islamic world, but which he considered idolatrous impurities and innovations in Islam (Bid'ah). Eventually he formed a pact with a local leader, Muhammad bin Saud, offering political obedience and promising that protection and propagation of the Wahhabi movement meant "power and glory" and rule of "lands and men".The alliance between followers of ibn Abd al-Wahhab and Muhammad bin Saud's successors (the House of Saud) proved to be a durable one. The House of Saud continued to maintain its politico-religious alliance with the Wahhabi sect through the waxing and waning of its own political fortunes over the next 150 years, through to its eventual proclamation of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 1932, and then afterwards, on into modern times. Today Ibn Abd Al-Wahhab's teachings are the official, state-sponsored form of Sunni Is ...

Named after the Angles, one of the Germanic tribes that migrated to the area of Britain that would later take their name, England, both names ultimately deriving from the Anglia peninsula in the Baltic Sea. It is closely related to the Frisian languages, but its vocabulary has been significantly influenced by other Germanic languages, particularly Norse (a North Germanic language), as well as by Latin and French.English has developed over the course of more than 1,400 years. The earliest forms of English, a set of Anglo-Frisian dialects brought to Great Britain by Anglo-Saxon settlers in the 5th century, are called Old English. Middle English began in the late 11th century with the Norman conquest of England and was a period in which the language was influenced by French. Early Modern English began in the late 15th century with the introduction of the printing press to London, the printing of the King James Bible and the start of the Great Vowel Shift.Through the worldwide influence of the British Empire, Modern English spread around the world from the 17th to mid-20th centuries. Through all types of printed and electronic media, and spurred by the emergence of the United States as a global superpower, English has become the leading language of international discourse and the lingua franca in many regions and professional contexts such as science, navigation and law.English is the third most spoken native language in the world, after Standard Chinese and Spanish. It is the most widely learned second language and is either the official language or one of the official languages in almost 60 sovereign states. There are more people who have learned it as a second language than there are native speakers. English is the most commonly spoken language in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand, and it is widely spoken in some areas of the Caribbean, Africa and South Asia. It is a co-official language of the United Nations, the European Union and many other world and regional international organisations. It is the most widely spoken Germanic language, accounting for at least 70% of speakers of this Indo-European branch. English has a vast vocabulary, though counting how many words any language has is impossible. English speakers are called "Anglophones". Modern English grammar is the result of a gradual change from a typical Indo-European dependent marking pattern with a rich inflectional morphology and relatively free word order to a mostly analytic pattern with little inflection, a fairly fixed SVO word order and a complex syntax. Modern English relies more on auxiliary verbs and word order for the expression of complex tenses, aspect and mood, as well as passive constructions, interrogatives and some negation. Despite noticeable variation among the accents and dialects of English used in different countries and regions—in terms of phonetics and phonology, and sometimes also vocabulary, grammar and spelling—English-speakers from around the world are able to communicate with one another with relative ease.

Diversity jurisdiction
In the law of the United States, diversity jurisdiction is a form of subject-matter jurisdiction in civil procedure in which a United States district court in the federal judiciary has the power to hear a civil case where the persons that are parties are "diverse" in citizenship, which generally indicates that they are citizens of different states or non-U.S. citizens. (Corporations, as legal persons, may also be included.) Diversity jurisdiction and federal-question jurisdiction (jurisdiction over issues arising under federal law) constitute the two primary categories of subject matter jurisdiction in U.S. federal courts. The United States Constitution, in Article III, § 2, gives the Congress the power to permit federal courts to hear diversity cases through legislation authorizing such jurisdiction. The provision was included because the Framers of the Constitution were concerned that when a case is filed in one state, and it involves parties from that state and another state, the state court might be biased toward the party from that state. Congress first exercised that power and granted federal trial circuit courts diversity jurisdiction in the Judiciary Act of 1789. Diversity jurisdiction is currently codified at 28 U.S.C. § 1332.

Erik Swyngedouw
“Since 2011, a seemingly endless proliferation of urban rebellions, sparked by a variety of conditions and unfolding against the backdrop of very different historical and geographical contexts, has profoundly disturbed the apparently cozy neoliberal status quo and disquieted various economic and political elites. The aftermath of such urban insurrections has provided the starting point for the arguments developed in this presentation. I proceed in four steps. First, I discuss the contested configurations of the processes of post-democratization. Next, I propose a series of theoretical and political arguments that help frame the evacuation of the properly political from the spaces of post-democratic policy negotiation on the one hand and the spectral re-emergence of the political on the other. In the concluding part, perspectives for re-vitalizing the political possibilities of a spatialized emancipatory project are presented.” Erik Swyngedouw is professor of geography at Manchester University. His research interests include political-ecology, hydro-social conflict, urban governance, democracy and political power, and the politics of globalization. He previously taught at Oxford University and held the Vincent Wright Visiting Professorship at Science Po, Paris, in 2014. He recently co-edited (with Japhy Willson) The Post-Political and Its Discontents: Spectres of Radical Politics Today (Edinburgh University Press, 2014). His new book with MIT Press, Liquid Power: Contested Hydro-Modernities in Twentieth-Century Spain, focuses on the issue of water and how it has been affected by emerging forms of social power in Spain.

William's claim to the English throne derived from his familial relationship with the childless Anglo-Saxon King Edward the Confessor, who may have encouraged William's hopes for the throne. Edward died in January 1066 and was succeeded by his brother-in-law Harold Godwinson. The Norwegian king Harald Hardrada invaded northern England in September 1066 and was victorious at the Battle of Fulford, but Harold defeated and killed him at the Battle of Stamford Bridge on 25 September. Within days, William landed in southern England. Harold marched south to oppose him, leaving a significant portion of his army in the north. Harold's army confronted William's invaders on 14 October at the Battle of Hastings; William's force defeated Harold, who was killed in the engagement. Although William's main rivals were gone, he still faced rebellions over the following years and was not secure on his throne until after 1072. The lands of the resisting English elite were confiscated; some of the elite fled into exile. To control his new kingdom, William granted lands to his followers and built castles commanding military strongpoints throughout the land. Other effects of the conquest included the court and government, the introduction of the Norman language as the language of the elites, and changes in the composition of the upper classes, as William enfeoffed lands to be held directly from the king. More gradual changes affected the agricultural classes and village life: the main change appears to have been the formal elimination of slavery, which may or may not have been linked to the invasion. There was little alteration in the structure of government, as the new Norman administrators took over many of the forms of Anglo-Saxon government.

Written language only began at around 3200 BC, but spoken language has existed long ago. Learning by listening is a great way to: - increases imagination and understanding - improves your listening skills - improves your own spoken accent - learn while on the move - reduce eye strain Now learn the vast amount of general knowledge available on Wikipedia through audio (audio article). You could even learn subconsciously by playing the audio while you are sleeping!

Alexander believed that poor habits in posture and movement damaged spatial self-awareness as well as health, and that movement efficiency could support overall physical well-being. He saw the technique as a mental training technique as well.Alexander began developing his technique's principles in the 1890s in an attempt to address voice loss during public speaking. He credited his method with allowing him to pursue his passion for reciting in Shakespearean theater.Some proponents of the Alexander Technique say that it addresses a variety of health conditions related to cumulative physical behaviors but there is little evidence to support these claims. As of 2015 there was evidence suggesting the Alexander Technique may be helpful for long-term back pain, long-term neck pain, and may help people cope with Parkinson's disease. However, both Aetna and the Australian Department of Health have conducted reviews and concluded that the technique has insufficient evidence to warrant insurance coverage.
