So what happens when he awakens one day to a talking lizard, who informs him that there is a gigantic hammer in outer space that is poised to split the Earth into pieces and requests his allegiance in the fight against the forces of evil? Pretend it never happened? Unfortunately for Yuuhi, a bit of coercion in the form of a super-powered princess prevents him from returning to his mediocre life-as-usual. In the adventure of a lifetime, Yuuhi will join forces with the capricious princess and a motley crew of companions to fight back against an evil mage and his horrifying homunculus before the Biscuit Hammer can destroy the planet!

Kenan T.Erim Aphrodisias: A Guide to the Site and Its Museum

Aphrodisias received limited attention in ancient literature, but was an important site patronized by Augustus and his family (who claimed descent from the patron goddess). This city is located near fine marble quarries and became a center of sculptures. From the surviving material the existence of a school of sculpture has been detected. these remains also allow one to learn much about artistic technique and craft.Note that the goddess is, like Ephesian Artemis, an ancient figure of broad powers. Her statue reveals a stiff garment with various registers. She was not only the goddess of love.This is a useful guide with fine illustrations to an interesting (and on-going) site.Издательство: Net Turistik YayinlarАвтор: Kenan T.Erim

Ananieva Nonna VanCleef & Arpels on the summer night

Ananieva Nonna VanCleef & Arpels on the summer night

I was driving back from work in the evening at about nine, around the Ring. I kept changing lanes, but there were so many cars that this didn’t make much of a difference. It was drizzling. In the subway under Tverskaya Street two SUVs had collided – a Lexus and a Mercedes (I hate that Mercedes model; it always reminds me of a bier), blocking one of the lanes. The car crash wasn’t at all serious, but neither party would drive away. They were waiting for militiamen. Their lights twinkled beautifully, like a couple of figure-skaters at the European Championship. I thought of Beloussova and Protopopov. I had been a little girl when they were real celebrities; they had stayed in Western Europe and were nearly killed in a car accident. Sometimes the strangest associations occur to you.

Becoming by Cindy Crawford

Becoming by Cindy Crawford

International supermodel Cindy Crawford chronicles her life and career, sharing stories and lessons learned, and featuring her most memorable images in this New York Times bestseller. Cindy Crawford was the cornerstone of the golden age of the supermodel in the 1990s. She blazed a trail during that decade, seamlessly moving between the runway to unconventional outlets, such as cutting-edge MTV, Super Bowl commercials, and even Playboy magazine.On the eve of her fiftieth birthday, Crawford looks back, photo shoot by photo shoot, on a remarkable career and various life lessons she absorbed. She discusses her earliest modeling years and learning how to become less self-conscious in front of a camera; trusting her own instincts about creating positive messages about a healthy and strong body image that she knew would reach women of all ages; her feelings about becoming a wife and a mother; and her thoughts about turning fifty and what she would tell her younger self if she had the chance. The photographs span her entire career, beginning from the mid 1980s, and feature unpublished images from Crawford’s personal archive in addition to images by every top name in fashion photography, including Annie Leibovitz, Arthur Elgort, Helmut Newton, Herb Ritts, Irving Penn, Patrick Demarchelier, and Richard Avedon, among others.A beautifully illustrated series of stories, Becoming is a smart and engaging book that sheds light into the life and work of an extraordinary woman.

The Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold: Adventures Along the Iron Curtain Trail

The Cyclist Who Went Out in the Cold: Adventures Along the Iron Curtain Trail

Scaling a new peak of rash over-ambition, Tim Moore tackles the 9,000km route of the old Iron Curtain on a tiny-wheeled, two-geared East German shopping bike.Asking for trouble and getting it, he sets off from the northernmost Norwegian-Russian border at the Arctic winter's brutal height, bullying his plucky MIFA 900 through the endless and massively sub-zero desolation of snowbound Finland.Sleeping in bank vaults, imperial palaces and unreconstructed Soviet youth hostels, battling vodka-breathed Russian hostility, Romanian landslides and a diet of dumplings, Moore and his "so-small bicycle" are sustained by the kindness of reindeer farmers and Serbian rock gods, plus a shameful addiction to Magic Man energy drink.Haunted throughout by the border detritus of watchtowers and rusted razor wire, Moore reflects on the curdling of the Communist dream, and the memories of a Cold War generation reared on the fear of apocalypse - at a time of ratcheting East-West tension.After three months, 20 countries and a 58-degree jaunt up the centigrade scale, man and bike finally wobble up to a Black Sea beach in Bulgaria, older and wiser, but mainly older.

If Only They Didn't Speak English: Notes from Trump's America

If Only They Didn't Speak English: Notes from Trump's America

As the BBC’s North America Editor, Jon Sopel has had a pretty busy time of it lately. In the 18 months it’s taken for a reality star to go from laughingstock to leader of the free world, Jon has traveled the length and breadth of the United States, experiencing it from a perspective that most of us could only dream of: he has flown aboard Air Force One, interviewed President Obama and has even been described as "a beauty" by none other than Donald Trump. Reflecting on his journey across the continent to cover the most turbulent race in recent history, Jon Sopel lifts a lid on the seething resentments, profound anxieties and sheer rage that found its embodiment in a brash, unpredictable and seemingly unstoppable figure. In this fascinating, insightful portrait of American life and politics, Jon sets out to answer the rest of the world's questions about a country that once stood for the grandest of dreams but which is now mired in a storm of political extremism, racial division and increasingly perverse beliefs.

Omay Tolga, Hasanov Mubariz, Ucar Nuri Energy consumption and economic growth: Evidence from nonlinear panel cointegration and causality tests

Omay Tolga, Hasanov Mubariz, Ucar Nuri Energy consumption and economic growth: Evidence from nonlinear panel cointegration and causality tests

In this paper, we examine nonlinear interrelationship between energy consumption and output level for a panel of G7 countries. For this purpose, we propose a nonlinear cointegration test in heterogeneous panels for testing the presence of a cointegrating relationship that follows a globally stationary exponential smooth transition (ESTR) process, and apply our test for investigating long-run relationship between energy use and economic growth in the case of the G7 countries. Our results suggest the presence of a long-run relationship between these two variables whereas adjustment to the equilibrium is inherently nonlinear. After establishing long-run relationship between energy consumption and output, we estimate a Panel Smooth Transition Vector Error Correction Model and apply nonlinear Granger causality tests in order to analyze the direction of the causality between these variables. We find that the causality between energy consumption and output level is dependent on the phases of business cycle.Our results highlight importance of taking account of possible nonlinearities in analysing output-energy causality nexus and designing energy policies.

VOICES IN THE OCEAN

VOICES IN THE OCEAN

Since the dawn of recorded history, humans have felt a kinship with the sleek and beautiful dolphin, an animal whose playfulness, sociability, and intelligence seems like an aquatic mirror of mankind. In recent decades, scientists have discovered dolphins recognize themselves in reflections, count, feel despondent, adorn themselves, rescue one another (and humans), deduce, infer, form cliques, throw tantrums, gossip, scheme. Several native peoples trace their lineage to dolphins. They are the stars of multimillion dollar aquatic theme parks, money that has fueled a sinister illicit trade as shown in the documentary Blackfish. The U.S. Navy has a secret program using dolphins as undersea soldiers. The theory that they are a superior, extraterrestial species is popular among the New Age fringe. They are the victims of brutal slaughters as depicted in the documentary The Cove. To swim with a dolphin is a transporting experience, an encounter with a being seemingly so like us, yet so alien. No writer is better positioned to portray these magical creatures than Susan Casey, whose combination of personal reporting, intense scientific research, and evocative prose made The Wave and The Devil's Teeth contemporary classics of writing on the oceans. For two years Casey traveled the world, and now she has written a thrilling book about the other intelligent life on the planet.

Ashok Khanna, Pramesh Ratnakar Banaras. The Sacred Сity

Ashok Khanna, Pramesh Ratnakar Banaras. The Sacred Сity

Banaras has been for over two and a half thousand years the pre-eminent sacred city of the Hindus. They believe that to bathe in thу holy river Ganges here is to be cleansed of sin, and that to die in Banaras is to win salvation. It is this transcendental promise that chiefly underlies the lasting hold of Banaras on the teeming Hindu imagination and explains its cardinal position on the cultural map of India. The power of faith has shaped Banaras as an urban amalgam with a unique and subtle flavour - as a citadel of the Hindu tradition, as a seat of ancient learning, as a hive of commerce and crafts, and as theatre of the inimitable Banarasi way of life, with its accent on leisure and gaiety.This book seeks to explain the extraordinary synthsis that is Banaras, and to reveal the reach meaning that lies behind commonplace sights and everyday images. Fifty splendid photographs present the inexhaustible panorama of the ghats and images steeped in the daily life of Banaras.Издательство: Lustre Press

Alone Time

Alone Time

Travelling with friends and family is usually thought of as a privilege. In theory, anyway. In practice, it's more often about debating which sights to see, panicking over diminishing phone batteries and bickering over what to eat. Not much joy in that. But alone you can do as you please. You can wander markets, relish silence, go to a park. Go to Paris. Why not?In Alone Time, New York Times travel columnist Stephanie Rosenbloom travels alone in four seasons to four remarkable cities - Paris, Istanbul, Florence and New York - exploring the sensory experience of solitude. Along the way she illuminates the psychological arguments for alone time, revealing that whether you recognize it or not, it's good to be alone now and then. This is a book about the pleasures and benefits of savouring the moment, examining things closely, using all your senses to take in your surroundings, whether travelling to faraway places or walking the streets of your own city. Through on-the-ground observations and anecdotes, and drawing on the thinking of artists, writers and innovators who have cherished solitude, Alone Time lays bare the magic of going solo.

Faberge and the Russian Crafts Tradition: An Empire's Legacy

Faberge and the Russian Crafts Tradition: An Empire's Legacy

This book gives a fascinating overview of Russian decorative art, revealing a highly accomplished crafts tradition that persisted over nine centuries. It includes works by Peter Carl Faberge and his workshop, jeweled Byzantine icons, silver drinking vessels, and intricate enamels. Featured are two extraordinary Faberge eggs that were once in the Russian Imperial collection, including one that opens up to reveal a miniature gold replica of the Gatchina Palace, near St. Petersburg.The decorative arts had flourished in Russia under the patronage of the tsars and their court, whose apparently limitless resources supported the production of some of the most technically sophisticated works of art ever made. With the onset of the Russian Revolution, a few individuals helped bring many of these objects to Europe and then into major private and public collections in the United States, including that of the Walters Art Museum. On the 100th anniversary of the revolution, this book tells the stories of their initial dispersal and of the collectors and dealers through whose hands they passed.
