Robert Frost The Road Not Taken, Birches, and Other Poems

"The Road Not Taken, Birches, and Other Poems" contains some of Frost's best-known, anthologized, and closely examined poems, such as "The Road Not Taken," "An Old Man's Winter Night," "Birches," and "'Out, Out---'."As a whole, the volume is a reflection on space and time, on the boundaries where city meets country, where humans meet nature, and where humans meet each other.In addition, his portraits of women---particularly "The Witch of Coös" and "Wild Grapes"---are among the finest and most complex in the English language.Like the speaker in "The Road Not Taken," these poems will continue to be read "somewhere ages and ages hence."

This is a unique book with nearly 1000 problems and 50 case studies on open-ended problems in every key topic in chemical engineering that helps to better prepare chemical engineers for the future. The term «open-ended problem» basically describes an approach to the solution of a problem and/or situation for which there is not a unique solution. The Introduction to the general subject of open-ended problems is followed by 22 chapters, each of which addresses a traditional chemical engineering or chemical engineering-related topic. Each of these chapters contain a brief overview of the subject matter of concern, e.g., thermodynamics, which is followed by sample open-ended problems that have been solved (by the authors) employing one of the many possible approaches to the solutions. This is then followed by approximately 40-45 open-ended problems with no solutions (although many of the authors’ solutions are available for those who adopt the book for classroom or training purposes). A reference section is included with the chapter’s contents. Term projects, comprised of 12 additional chapter topics, complement the presentation. This book provides academic, industrial, and research personnel with the material that covers the principles and applications of open-ended chemical engineering problems in a thorough and clear manner. Upon completion of the text, the reader should have acquired not only a working knowledge of the principles of chemical engineering, but also (and more importantly) experience in solving open-ended problems. What many educators have learned is that the applications and implications of open-ended problems are not only changing professions, but also are moving so fast that many have not yet grasped their tremendous impact. The book drives home that the open-ended approach will revolutionize the way chemical engineers will need to operate in the future.

Clandestine in Chile: The Adventures of Miguel Littin Clandestine in Chile: The Adventures of Miguel Littin Новинка

Clandestine in Chile: The Adventures of Miguel Littin

In 1973, the film director Miguel Littín fled Chile after a U.S.-supported military coup toppled the democratically elected socialist government of Salvador Allende. The new dictator, General Augusto Pinochet, instituted a reign of terror and turned Chile into a laboratory to test the poisonous prescriptions of the American economist Milton Friedman. In 1985, Littín returned to Chile disguised as a Uruguayan businessman. He was desperate to see the homeland he’d been exiled from for so many years; he also meant to pull off a very tricky stunt: with the help of three film crews from three different countries, each supposedly busy making a movie to promote tourism, he would secretly put together a film that would tell the truth about Pinochet’s benighted Chile—a film that would capture the world’s attention while landing the general and his secret police with a very visible black eye.Afterwards, the great novelist Gabriel García Márquez sat down with Littín to hear the story of his escapade, with all its scary, comic, and not-a-little surreal ups and downs. Then, applying the same unequaled gifts that had already gained him a Nobel Prize, García Márquez wrote it down. Clandestine in Chile is a true-life adventure story and a classic of modern reportage.

Saint Petersburg, на английском языке Saint Petersburg, на английском языке Новинка

Saint Petersburg, на английском языке

St Petersburg is the youngest among well-known European cities - its tercentenary was celebrated in 2003. For more than two hundred years it was the brilliant capital of the immense Russian Empire pushing the old patriarchal Moscow into the background. Having lost the official status of the capital in 1918, it has still remained the country's cultural and spiritual centre. It was in St Petersburg that the new type of Russian man was being formed, the greatest triumphs were celebrated and the events that influenced the destiny of Russia and the world as a whole took place. Not a single Russian city caused such admiration and was an object of such damnation as St Petersburg; there is no other city in Russia with which the brightest hopes and the darkest prophecies were associated.St Petersburg is unique indeed. Created by the powerful will of Peter the Great as "a window on to Europe", it reminded by its sudden emergence to European countries about the forgotten Russia that had been withdrawn, in their opinion, to the boundary of the Christian world. The Tsar founded the city "to curb the haughty neighbour", to ensure for Russia an outlet to the Baltic Sea and "to gain a foothold upon the coast". It was here, in the new capital that Peter the Great overcame the country's centuries-long isolation, strengthened its influence and proclaimed Russia as an Empire becoming its first Emperor. Peter, preoccupied with grandiose imperial plans, was inspired by the image of "eternal" Rome, so imperial symbols and parallels were highly important for him. Therefore the name of the Holy City of St Peter given to the new capital was associated not only with the heavenly patron of the Russian Tsar, but also with the idea of St Petersburg as the new Rome. It was not a mere coincidence that the coat of arms of the city on the Neva River is somewhat similar to that of the Vatican - crossed anchors correspond to the crossed keys of the Catholic state. The arms suggested, as it were, a link between Emperor Peter, who took a decision to open the doors of his "paradise" to Europe, with the Apostle Peter, who possessed keys from Paradise. And the anchor in the coat of arms was regarded as a symbol of the spiritual salvation and faith, implying at the same time the young Russian fleet.

Praise for Ron's Road to Wealth «Long-term investors will learn much from Ron Muhlenkamp's thoughtful reflections on what he has learned about investing over a thirty-year period of successful practice.» –Milton Friedman «Ron Muhlenkamp has thought long and hard and successfully about investments for many years. He has learned not to be misled by the distortions that inflation brings to normal returns. He has also learned the important understanding that volatility is not the risk that should concern long-term investors. His book will help readers to do better.» –Allan H. Meltzer, Professor of Political Economy and Public Policy, Carnegie Mellon University «Ron Muhlenkamp has one of the most original, insightful minds in the financial world today. His record is superb. You will find his book a richly rewarding read.» –Steve Forbes, President and Chief Executive Officer of Forbes and Editor in Chief of Forbes magazine «Conventional wisdom says that mutual fund managers can't beat the market; Ron Muhlenkamp's record proves that he can. Ron's Road to Wealth offers a bounty of snapshots of the insightful thinking that has allowed Muhlenkamp to better his peers with remarkable consistency. While many on Wall Street make their living adding to the confusion of the investment process, Muhlenkamp cuts through the clutter to reveal the commonsense logic underneath the surface. If you're tired of conventional investment results, you'll relish this book's unconventional wisdom.» –Don Phillips, Managing Director of Morningstar, Inc. «Ron Muhlenkamp is virtually the only commentator in today's investment world who makes a compelling and commonsense case for active investment management. His principles have exactly what you look for in the investment world: they modestly underpromise and have an interesting history of overdelivering.» –Bob Veres, Publisher and Editor of Inside Information

Where do we come from? Are we merely a cluster of elementary particles in a gigantic world receptacle? And what does it all mean? In this highly original new book, the philosopher Markus Gabriel challenges our notion of what exists and what it means to exist. He questions the idea that there is a world that encompasses everything like a container life, the universe, and everything else. This all-inclusive being does not exist and cannot exist. For the world itself is not found in the world. And even when we think about the world, the world about which we think is obviously not identical with the world in which we think. For, as we are thinking about the world, this is only a very small event in the world. Besides this, there are still innumerable other objects and events: rain showers, toothaches and the World Cup. Drawing on the recent history of philosophy, Gabriel asserts that the world cannot exist at all, because it is not found in the world. Yet with the exception of the world, everything else exists; even unicorns on the far side of the moon wearing police uniforms. Revelling in witty thought experiments, word play, and the courage of provocation, Markus Gabriel demonstrates the necessity of a questioning mind and the role that humour can play in coming to terms with the abyss of human existence.

Dave Dungan Don't Follow Me. I'm the Leader ?????????

A leader is more than someone who is in charge. A true leader is someone who understands how important it is to empower others. One of the greatest privileges you can have is the opportunity to be the leader of leaders. There are plenty of bosses but very few true leaders. What of success? I have come up with three truths about success. The first is that it is never a constant, second it is relative and third it is circumstantial. As to its lack of consistency, success may be held one moment and taken away the next. Success is relative to a focus. You may be great at business but fail as a husband/wife, father/mother or friend. And not everyone holds success to the same standard. In any set of circumstances you may be a huge winner in their eyes or you may be a loser. In this book you will find truths about leadership that make it more than a rung on a ladder and much more than a position. Not everyone was designed to be a leader and that is not a bad thing. But if you feel that you are a true leader then you will want to equip yourself with every tool available so that you may be where you are supposed to be when destiny shows up. The choice is yours, lead on.

Bartels’s Democracy for Realists by Instaread Preview: Democracy for Realists: Why Elections Do Not Produce Responsive Government offers a critique of conventional wisdom surrounding popular theories of democracy. Authors Christopher Achen and Larry Bartels argue that the public, journalists, and political scientists rely on a group of common-sense understandings of democracy. The authors collectively refer to these beliefs as the “folk theory” of democracy. The folk theory presumes that people behave as engaged citizens and that election outcomes reflect public policy preferences. This assumption is inaccurate and misleading, and therefore presents a danger to democracy.Political scientists have tried in various ways to validate or systematize the intuitions on which the folk theory in based. Anthony Downs put forward a spatial model of voting, which supposes that individuals vote for the politicians who are closest to their own policy preferences. According to that theory, victorious politicians are the ones who can best align their policies with those… PLEASE NOTE: This is a Summary, Analysis & Review of the book and NOT the original book. Inside this Summary, Analysis & Review of Christopher H.

We are facing a future of unbounded complexity. Whether that complexity is harnessed to build a world that is safe, pleasant, humane and profitable, or whether it causes us to careen off a cliff into an abyss of mind-numbing junk is an open question. The challenges and opportunities–technical, business, and human–that this technological sea change will bring are without precedent. Entire industries will be born and others will be laid to ruin as our society navigates this journey. There are already many more computing devices in the world than there are people. In a few more years, their number will climb into the trillions. We put microprocessors into nearly every significant thing that we manufacture, and the cost of routine computing and storage is rapidly becoming negligible. We have literally permeated our world with computation. But more significant than mere numbers is the fact we are quickly figuring out how to make those processors communicate with each other, and with us. We are about to be faced, not with a trillion isolated devices, but with a trillion-node network: a network whose scale and complexity will dwarf that of today’s Internet. And, unlike the Internet, this will be a network not of computation that we use, but of computation that we live in. Written by the leaders of one of America’s leading pervasive computing design firms, this book gives a no-holds-barred insiders’ account of both the promise and the risks of the age of Trillions. It is also a cautionary tale of the head-in-the-sand attitude with which many of today’s thought-leaders are at present approaching these issues. Trillions is a field guide to the future–designed to help businesses and their customers prepare to prosper, in the information.

Renowned economist Andrew Smithers offers prescriptive advice and economic theory on avoiding the next financial crisis In The Road to Recovery, Andrew Smithers—one of a handful of respected economists to have accurately predicted the most recent global financial crisis—argues that the neoclassical consensus governing global economic decision-making must be revised in order to avoid the next financial collapse. He argues that the current low interest rates and budget deficits have prevented the recession becoming a depression but that those policies cannot be continuously repeated and a new consensus for action must be found. He offers practical guidance on reducing government, household, and business debt; changing the economic incentives for the management class that currently inhibit long-term growth; and rebalancing national economies both internally and externally. Further, he explains how central bankers must broaden the economic theories that guide their decisions to include the major factors of debt and asset prices. Offers practical, real-world economic policies for restructuring and rebalancing the global economic system Presents a modern economic theory for preventing the next collapse Ideal for economists, investors, fund managers, and central bankers Written by an economist described by the legendary Barton Biggs as «one of the five best, most dispassionate, erudite analysts in the world» As the global economy continues the long climb out of recession, it's imperative that central bankers and other economic decision-makers not repeat the mistakes of the past. The Road to Recovery offers prescriptive guidance on redesigning an economic system that is healthy, stable, and beneficial to all.

Leonard Ravenhill Heart Breathings

Heart Breathings is a fitting title for a book where words are only the vessel that somehow endeavors to hold, and show forth, the breathings of the spirit that is not flesh. There is a frustration when yearnings beyond words find themselves clothed in the only medium that can cause them to be tangible to others. These poems are the roarings and sighings and longings of the inarticulate soul trying to create a substance through which to transmit its feelings to others.—Paul Ravenhill.

Wallace D. Wattles The Wisdom of Wallace D. Wattles - Including. The Science of Getting Rich, The Science of Being Great & The Science of Being Well

The Wisdom of Wallace D. Wattles - Including: The Science of Getting Rich, The Science of Being Great & The Science of Being WellThe Science of Getting RichTHIS book is pragmatical, not philosophical; a practical manual, not a treatise upon theories. It is intended for the men and women whose most pressing need is for money; who wish to get rich first, and philosophize afterward. It is for those who have, so far, found neither the time, the means, nor the opportunity to go deeply into the study of metaphysics, but who want results and who are willing to take the conclusions of science as a basis for action, without going into all the processes by which those conclusions were reached.It is expected that the reader will take the fundamental statements upon faith, just as he would take statements concerning a law of electrical action if they were promulgated by a Marconi or an Edison; and, taking the statements upon faith, that he will prove their truth by acting upon them without fear or hesitation. Every man or woman who does this will certainly get rich; for the science herein applied is an exact science, and failure is impossible. For the benefit, however, of those who wish to investigate philosophical theories and so secure a logical basis for faith, I will here cite certain authorities. The monistic theory of the universe the theory that One is All, and that All is One; That one Substance manifests itself as the seeming many elements of the material world -is of Hindu ...

However, inevitability does not mean that the future is already predetermined. Even with inevitable forces at work, there is much that people can still do to impact the purpose, meaning, and form of developing trends. For example, it was inevitable that mobile phones would become ubiquitous. But the specific development of the iPhone was not inevitable; it was shaped by corporations and consumers.All of the forces shaping the future are becoming, cognifying, flowing, screening, accessing, sharing, filtering, remixing, interacting, tracking, questioning, and beginning.

The integration of new sources of energy like wind power, solar-power, small-scale generation, or combined heat and power in the power grid is something that impacts a lot of stakeholders: network companies (both distribution and transmission), the owners and operators of the DG units, other end-users of the power grid (including normal consumers like you and me) and not in the least policy makers and regulators. There is a lot of misunderstanding about the impact of DG on the power grid, with one side (including mainly some but certainly not all, network companies) claiming that the lights will go out soon, whereas the other side (including some DG operators and large parks of the general public) claiming that there is nothing to worry about and that it's all a conspiracy of the large production companies that want to protect their own interests and keep the electricity price high. The authors are of the strong opinion that this is NOT the way one should approach such an important subject as the integration of new, more environmentally friendly, sources of energy in the power grid. With this book the authors aim to bring some clarity to the debate allowing all stakeholders together to move to a solution. This book will introduce systematic and transparent methods for quantifying the impact of DG on the power grid.

Pascal Bruckner Has Marriage for Love Failed?

Today we like to think that marriage is a free choice based on love: that we freely choose whom to marry and that we do so, not so much for survival or social advantage, but for love. The invention of marriage for love inverted the old relationship between love and marriage. In the past, marriage was sacred, and love, if it existed at all, was a consequence of marriage; today, love is sacred and marriage is secondary. But now marriage appears to be becoming increasingly superfluous. For the past forty years or so, the number of weddings has been declining, the number of divorces exploding and the number of unmarried individuals and couples growing, while single-parent families are becoming more numerous. Love has triumphed over marriage but now it is destroying it from inside. So has the ideal of marriage for love failed, and has love finally been liberated from the shackles of marriage? In this brilliant and provocative book Pascal Bruckner argues that the old tension between love and marriage has not been resolved in favour of love, it has simply been displaced onto other levels. Even if it seems more straightforward, the contemporary landscape of love is far from euphoric: as in the past, infidelity, loss and betrayal are central to the plots of modern love, and the disenchantment is all the greater because marriages are voluntary and not imposed. But the collapse of the ideal of marriage for love is not necessarily a cause for remorse, because it demonstrates that love retains its subversive power. Love is not a glue to be put in the service of the institution of marriage: it is an explosive that blows up in our faces, dynamite pure and simple.

For more than two hundred years it was the brilliant capital of the immense Russian Empire pushing the old patriarchal Moscow into the background. Having lost the official status of the capital in 1918, it has still remained the country's cultural and spiritual centre. It was in St Petersburg that the new type of Russian man was being formed, the greatest triumphs were celebrated and the events that influenced the destiny of Russia and the world as a whole took place. Not a single Russian city caused such admiration and was an object of such damnation as St Petersburg; there is no other city in Russia with which the brightest hopes and the darkest prophecies were associated.

Зоя Финицкая Samarkand / Самарканд

Cities of the Orient that have become famous in history acquire permanent names, rather like titles. These titles were either bestowed on them by a poet, and then spread world-wide by word of mouth, or else the poets themselves borrowed a popular term-it is now difficult to determine which. From time immemorial Samarkand has been called The Beautiful Face of the Earth, or the Splendid Image of the Earth, or more laconically, but more to the point The Face of the Earth. It is well known that the city honoured with the title "The Face of the Earth" is one of the most ancient in the world. In 1970, a noteworthy date was widely and solemnly celebrated throughout the USSR-the 2,500th anniversary of its founding. Samarkand played an important role in the history not only of the peoples of the region but of the entire ancient and medieval Orient. Today this is a city of magnificent architectural monuments, a city museum, and one of the centers of the Soviet and international tourism.

Parallax, Samuel Birley Rowbotham Zetetic Astronomy. Earth Not a Globe

2017 Reprint of 1865 Edition. Full facsimile of the original edition, not reproduced with Optical Recognition software. Zetetic Astronomy is a key work of flat-earth thought, just as Donnelly's Atlantis, the Antediluvian World is still considered required reading on the subject of Atlantis. If you ever have to debate the flat earth pro or con, this book is a complete agenda of each point that you'll have to argue. Rowbotham believed that the earth is flat. The continents float on an infinite ocean which somehow has a layer of fire underneath it. The lands we know are surrounded by an infinite wilderness of ice and snow, beyond the Antarctic Ocean, bordered by an immense circular ice-cliff. What we call the North Pole is in the center of the earth.

Orwell G. 1984

The year 1984 has come and gone, but George Orwell's prophetic, nightmarish vision in 1949 of the world we were becoming is timelier than ever. 1984 is still the great modern classic of "negative Utopia"-a startlingly original and haunting novel that creates an imaginary world that is completely convincing, from the first sentence to the last four words. No one can deny the novel's hold on the imaginations of whole generations, or the power of its admonitions-a power that seems to grow, not lessen, with the passage of time.

A. J. Lohwater A. J. Lohwater's Russian-English Dictionary of the Mathematical Sciences

This dictionary is intended for use primarily by speakers of English who need to understand Russian mathematical writing and/or to translate such writing. As far as possible, the "definitions" are translations rather than explanations, and reflect current usage in mathematical writing. The vocabulary has been extensively enlarged and brought up to date, although it retains some obsolete terms that may be needed by users who have to consult older literature. Users may encounter material that has not been composed in the most approved or correct style. Therefore, some words that are frowned on by Soviet purists have been retained, or added, because they occur in writing by Soviet authors whose native language is not Russian, and whose knowledge of Russian is less than perfect. The dictionary must not be inverted: that is, read backwards as an English-Russian dictionary. We have attempted to give idiomatic translations, but a Russian word is not necessarily a correct or exact equivalent of the English word that is used to translate it in a particular context. Just because краевая задача can be correctly translated as "boundary value problem" does not mean that either, or any part, of the Russian words means "value."

St Petersburg is the youngest among well-known European cities - its tercentenary was celebrated in 2003. For more than two hundred years it was the brilliant capital of the immense Russian Empire pushing the old patriarchal Moscow into the background. Having lost the official status of the capital in 1918, it has still remained the country's cultural and spiritual centre. It was in St Petersburg that the new type of Russian man was being formed, the greatest triumphs were celebrated and the events that influenced the destiny of Russia and the world as a whole took place. Not a single Russian city caused such admiration and was an object of such damnation as St Petersburg; there is no other city in Russia with which the brightest hopes and the darkest prophecies were associated.St Petersburg is unique indeed. Created by the powerful will of Peter the Great as "a window on to Europe", it reminded by its sudden emergence to European countries about the forgotten Russia that had been withdrawn, in their opinion, to the boundary of the Christian world. The Tsar founded the city "to curb the haughty neighbour", to ensure for Russia an outlet to the Baltic Sea and "to gain a foothold upon the coast". It was here, in the new capital that Peter the Great overcame the country's centuries-long isolation, strengthened its influence and proclaimed Russia as an Empire becoming its first Emperor. Peter, preoccupied with grandiose imperial plans, was inspired by the image of "eternal" Rome, so imperial symbols and parallels were highly important for him. Therefore the name of the Holy City of St Peter given to the new capital was associated not only with the heavenly patron of the Russian Tsar, but also with the idea of St Petersburg as the new Rome. It was not a mere coincidence that the coat of arms of the city on the Neva River is somewhat similar to that of the Vatican - crossed anchors correspond to the crossed keys of the Catholic state. The arms suggested, as it were, a link between Emperor Peter, who took a decision to open the doors of his "paradise" to Europe, with the Apostle Peter, who possessed keys from Paradise. And the anchor in the coat of arms was regarded as a symbol of the spiritual salvation and faith, implying at the same time the young Russian fleet.
