Jr. Eduardo P. Olaguer, Jr. Eduardo P. Olaguer, Eduardo P. Jr. Olaguer The Power of Four. Keys to the Hidden Treasures of the Gospels

The Power of Four offers startling evidence for the existence of a mysterious Biblical code and the four keys that open its marvelous spiritual treasures. Drawing connections throughout the entire Bible, the book revolves around the keys of the four allegorical creatures mentioned in Ezekiel and the Apocalypse, the four collections of Old Testament books, the four structural clues at the beginning of each gospel, and the four sets of seven hidden symbols in each gospel.Unlike the Bible Code, which requires a computer to decipher, or the execrable Da Vinci Code, the genuine "code" behind the Gospels is hidden in plain sight. Offering a view that runs counter to the received wisdom of our age--which considers Scripture as no more than a haphazard collection of writings by time- and culture-bound human authors--the four keys enable us to understand the entire Bible as the systematic work of an Infinite Mind, and ultimately allow the reader to discern the deeper meanings of the life of Jesus Christ.

Blundell Renald P21 Regulation in Lung Epithelial Cells

After lung injury epithelial cells are damaged may be shed thus denuding the basement membrane. The normal response to injury is usually an inflammatory reaction, deposition of new extracellular matrix that incorporates various growth factors, influx of inflammatory cells and regeneration of lost epithelial cells. Regeneration involves migration, proliferation and differentiation of stem cells to cover the exposed area. In the lung bronchiolar region Clara cell are thought to be the progenitor cells. We have studied changes in cell cycle and behaviour of lung epithelial cells in several models of lung injury and in vitro primary culture. We investigated the expression of the cell cycle control genes, p21, p53, PCNA and p27, in mouse models of three important human diseases mainly fibrosis, asthma and Mycobacterium tuberculosis infection.

Sanaa Khalil Humoral Immune Response Against Survivin in Patients with Lung Cancer

This Book is presenting the Evaluation of the humoral immune response against survivin in patients with lung, Serum samples from 33 small cell lung cancer (SCLC) and 117 non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients upon diagnosis, and from 100 controls, were tested by ELISA for anti-survivin antibodies. We conclude that survivin does not induce considerable humoral responses in lung cancer. Potentially, however, strong anti-survivin antibody responses can be elicited during the follow-up of the patients, whose clinical significance remains to be elucidated. These findings, together with our previous data concerning survivin expression and the related cytolytic T cell responses in lung cancer, signify a high tolerogenic potential of this tumor-associated antigen.

Mohamud Mohamed Salad National Security Dynamics in Somalia in the post-Siad Barre era

Master's Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Region: Africa, , course: master of science in strategic studies, language: English, abstract: Somalia was one of the first states to crumble in the post-cold war era. This study seeks to explain the destruction of the Somali state from a security perspective, arguing that a plethora of factors including the political economy of class and regional dynamics underscored the dissolution of the Somali nation-state and that the emergence of political Islam to fill the political vacuum configured the pattern of security challenges facing the country. In doing so, this study utilizes the qualitative research design premised on the interview technique as the main data collection method. What is clear from this study is that to explain the destruction of Somalia and its security abyss we must probe deeper to uncover the points of fracture of the Somali social order, as well as external factors obscured by an emphasis on clan tensions by media and scholarly reportage. Hence, explaining Somalia's dissolution and its attendant security challenges is a contribution to the ongoing project of theorizing the global disintegration of nation-states in the post-Cold War era. All things considered, it is hoped that this study will provide professionals and scholars insights on the challenges of African security in the Twenty-First century.

Wilde Oscar Ideal Husband. The Importance of Being Earnest

Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde was an Irish playwright, poet and author of numerous short stories and one novel. Known for his biting wit, he became one of the most successful playwrights of the late Victorian era in London, and one of the greatest "celebrities" of his day. An Ideal Husband is an 1895 comedic stage play by Oscar Wilde which revolves around blackmail and political corruption, and touches on the themes of public and private honour. The action is set in London, in "the present", and takes place over the course of twenty four hours. The Importance of Being Earnest, A Trivial Comedy for Serious People is a play by Oscar Wilde. It premiered on 14 February 1895 at the St. James's Theatre in London. Set in England during the late Victorian era, the play's humour derives in part from characters maintaining fictitious identities to escape unwelcome social obligations. It is replete with witty dialogue and satirises some of the foibles and hypocrisy of late Victorian society. It has proved Wilde's most enduringly popular play.

In a chapter on contemporary exiled writers and Australia, in relation to the subject, subjectivity and the modern state, she reflects on what it means to write with freedom.

The War That Never Ends. New Perspectives on the Vietnam War

More than three decades after the final withdrawal of American troops from Southeast Asia, the legacy of the Vietnam War continues to influence political, military, and cultural discourse. Journalists, politicians, scholars, pundits, and others have used the conflict to analyze each of America's subsequent military engagements. Many Americans have observed that Vietnam-era terms such as "cut and run," "quagmire," and "hearts and minds" are ubiquitous once again as comparisons between U.S. involvement in Iraq and in Vietnam seem increasingly appropriate. Because of its persistent significance, the Vietnam War era continues to inspire vibrant historical inquiry.The eminent scholars featured in The War That Never Ends offer fresh and insightful perspectives on the continuing relevance of the Vietnam War, from the homefront to "humping in the boonies," and from the great halls of political authority to the gritty hotbeds of oppositional activism. The contributors assert that the Vietnam War is central to understanding the politics of the Cold War, the social movements of the late twentieth century, the lasting effects of colonialism, the current direction of American foreign policy, and the ongoing economic development in Southeast Asia. The seventeen essays break new ground on questions relating to gender, religion, ideology, strategy, and public opinion, and the book gives equal emphasis to Vietnamese and American perspectives on the grueling...

Trude G. Dahl Religion and politics

Hindu nationalism became a powerful societal force in India during the 1990s. The political success of Hindu nationalism seemed to signal the importance of religion to Indian politics. As Hindu nationalism grew in popularity and strength it also became the object of scholarly interest. In the post-colonial era there has been a strong impetus to revise established knowledge of Indian religion and society. This book attempts to show how the revisionist tendencies of the post-colonial era were reflected in Western scholarship on Hindu nationalism in the 1990s. One scholarly work on Hindu nationalism from the period is being analysed. Viewing that work in light of broader scholarly discourses of the late 20th century, this book addresses topics like orientalism, essentialism, social constructionism, and modernity. The book brings about a discussion of scholarly trends prevalent in the late 20th century and the implications of these trends for the study of religion. The book should be of interest to scholars, students, and others who are engaged in studies of contemporary India or in studies of religion.

Vladimir Shinkarev Maxim and Fyodor: A Novel and Two Short Stories: Young Russians Search for the Meaning of Life

This book was written in 1980, when the author was working in the boiler room, like many other "unsanctioned" artists and writers in the pre-perestroika era. It describes in a very untraditional manner everyday life of ordinary young Russians, their misery and victories, their spiritual search for truth and horrible hangovers. The readers copied it with the risk for their freedom (up to eight years in jail) on the typewriters, before it was published officially in the beginning of the 90's, when it immediately became a best-seller. 'Maxim and Fyodor' helped an entire generation of young Russians to discover their real identity. In the oppressed environment of the late Communist State it had a message of truth and hope.Издательство - Seagull Publishing House Limited

Silvan S. Schweber QED and the Men Who Made It. Dyson, Feynman, Schwinger, and Tomonaga

In the 1930s, physics was in a crisis. There appeared to be no way to reconcile the new theory of quantum mechanics with Einstein's theory of relativity. Several approaches had been tried and had failed. In the post-World War II period, four eminent physicists rose to the challenge and developed a calculable version of quantum electrodynamics (QED), probably the most successful theory in physics. This formulation of QED was pioneered by Freeman Dyson, Richard Feynman, Julian Schwinger, and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga, three of whom won the Nobel Prize for their work. In this book, physicist and historian Silvan Schweber tells the story of these four physicists, blending discussions of their scientific work with fascinating biographical sketches. Setting the achievements of these four men in context, Schweber begins with an account of the early work done by physicists such as Dirac and Jordan, and describes the gathering of eminent theorists at Shelter Island in 1947, the meeting that heralded the new era of QED. The rest of his narrative comprises individual biographies of the four physicists, discussions of their major contributions, and the story of the scientific community in which they worked. Throughout, Schweber draws on his technical expertise to offer a lively and lucid explanation of how this theory was finally established as the appropriate way to describe the atomic and subatomic realms.

Byron Nernoff Memories from the Attic. The Nernoffs

This is a story about Byron’s early childhood in the late 1940s, 50s, and 60s. This was a very memorable and exciting time growing up with his family in that era. With so many creative, tragic, sad, and rewarding life experiences, he now wants to share that with you. Times were different then, and this book serves as a reminder for you to look back on those good old days in your own lives. Remember those wonderful times? Byron’s book is full of photos and history showcasing his own family, the Estonian culture, and of the time living in his grandfather’s house in Glen Head, Long Island. There are four basic themes that his grandfather instilled in the kids growing up with him, which is one of the reasons he has written this book–morals, work ethics, courage, and faith.

Frances B. Cogan Captured. The Japanese Internment of American Civilians in the Philippines, 1941-1945 Frances B. Cogan Captured. The Japanese Internment of American Civilians in the Philippines, 1941-1945 Новинка

Frances B. Cogan Captured. The Japanese Internment of American Civilians in the Philippines, 1941-1945

More than five thousand American civilian men, women, and children living in the Philippines during World War II were confined to internment camps following Japan's late December 1941 victories in Manila. Captured tells the story of daily life in five different camps--the crowded housing, mounting familial and international tensions, heavy labor, and increasingly severe malnourishment that made the internees' rescue a race with starvation. Frances B. Cogan explores the events behind this nearly four-year captivity, explaining how and why this little-known internment occurred. A thorough historical account, the book addresses several controversial issues about the internment, including Japanese intentions toward their prisoners and the U.S. State Department's role in allowing the presence of American civilians in the Philippines during wartime.Supported by diaries, memoirs, war crimes transcripts, Japanese soldiers' accounts, medical data, and many other sources, Captured presents a detailed and moving chronicle of the internees' efforts to survive. Cogan compares living conditions within the internment camps with life in POW camps and with the living conditions of Japanese soldiers late in the war. An afterword discusses the experiences of internment survivors after the war, combining medical and legal statistics with personal anecdotes to create a testament to the thousands of Americans whose captivity haunted them long after the war ended.

Ann Brooks, Lionel Wee Consumption. Comparing Singapore with Asian and Western Cities

'Consumption, Cities and States' examines the fascinating intersection of consumption, citizenship and the state in a cross-section of global cities in Asia and the West. It focuses on a number of theoretical and empirical analyses: developing and amplifying the intersection of consumption, citizenship and the state in late modernity in relation to a range of cities; examining the concept of the global city as an 'aspirational' category for cities in Asia and the West; and considering case studies which highlight the intersection of consumption and the state. As Ann Brooks and Lionel Wee demonstrate, the interface between citizen status and consumer activity proves a crucial point of analysis in the light of the neoliberal assertion that individuals and institutions perform at their best within a free market economy.

Anna Maria Beylunioğlu Religion-State Relations in Greece and Turkey

The current era of modernity has been preoccupied with the relationship between religion and state, and with defining and establishing the boundaries between the two spheres. Over the last decades, different ideas have emerged shaping theories of secularization and paving the road for alternative models of state-religion interaction. This study analyzes the evolution of various relationships between religion, state and citizenship in the modern era, based on a comparison of the Turkish and Greek nation-states. Rather than dealing with all dimensions of religion-state relations, this study focuses on identity card discussions, which emerged following Turkish and Greek attempts to refigure or remove the religion section on the identity cards in 2000 and 2004 respectively. The subtexts of these different courses of action are explored vis-à-vis the two states' experiences during the process of constructing the religion-state relationship, which coincides with the construction of citizenship perception in the formation of those nation-states.
