But when Kavya too joins him after her man was poisoned there ensues the tussle of a love triangle, which gets unraveled in a poignant end, but not before a series of murders. So, then who could have poisoned Ranjit the realtor, Shakeel the Inspector, Pravar the criminal and Natya his accomplice? Well the needle of sus...

Prey on the Prowl That June evening, the crimson sun gave in to the dark monsoon clouds to let them end its long summer reign over the Deccan skies. What with the thickening clouds thundering in triumph, Dhruva woke up from his siesta, and by the time he moved into the portico of his palatial bungalow at 9, Castle Hills, the skies had opened up to shower its sprawling lawns. It was as if the eagerness of the rainfall matched the longing of the parched soil to receive it...

Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii

By: S. M. Kamakau

In 1961 the first edition of the English translation of Samuel Kamakau's Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii was published by Kamehameha Schools Press. Many contributed to make its publication possible. A group of Hawaiian scholars was first selected by the trustees of Bishop Museum to translate Kamakau's florid literary style into readable English. The group included Mary Kawena Pukui, Thomas G. Thrum, Lahilahi Webb, Emma Davidson Taylor, and John Wise. Mary Kawena Pukui then revie...

Many famous chiefs, mentioned in Hawaiian history, were descended from Hana-laa-nui. The ruling chiefs (noho alii) of Hawaii were of that particular lineage (mookuauhau), and with additions from those of the other islands, the genealogy of Hawaii's chiefs and their ancestors was made complete. Umi-a-Liloa [that is, Umi-son-of-Liloa] was a famous chief, and the reason for his fame was that it was he who united all of the districts of Hawaii through wars. The kingdom beca...

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

By: BS Murthy

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

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

Conservadorismo é amor

By: Marcelo Hipólito

Quem vive no Ocidente se encontra sob a influência do pensamento judaico-cristão, aquele que acolhe com ternura e caridade; afinal, “não é bom que o homem esteja só” (Gênesis 2:18). Nesta verdade fundamental reside o Nós conservador e cristão, legado dos nossos ancestrais, um sentimento de integração e pertencimento a algo bom e justo, maior do que nós mesmos, fundado no amor a Deus e ao próximo. Essa é a essência da atitude conservadora existente no Brasil, o dever de c...

Science History of the Universe

By: Francis Rolt Wheeler

In the present volume there have been covered in a comprehensive and popular manner the various departments of Astronomy. Owing to its treatment in a definitely historical and descriptive manner, however, it may be possible to supplement the general review by a few brief statements of some of the results and problems that confront us in the actual work of the observational astronomy of to-day.

The astronomical beliefs of prehistoric man were doubt similar to those entertained by the Eskimo of the Arctic regions and the untutored tribes of Argentine' Republic, South Africa and Australia, tribes who, living only for the day, concern themselves but little with to- morrow and yesterday and care nothing about the universe...

Survival Scenarios and Suggestions

By: Richard Scroggins

My primary goal is sharing the hunting and survival knowledge that I have from my experience growing up and living in the country, as well as my time in the military as an Emergency Management Specialist. I have always been interested in primitive skills, and in preserving them for the future. I also believe that the modern culture that we have built is based on a very fragile framework of technology(i.e. Electricity), that could collapse at any time due to a natural or ...

Hawaii Place Names

By: Esther Mookini

In this latest book, John Clark, author of the highly regarded "Beaches of Hawaii" series, gives us the many captivating stories behind the hundreds of Hawaii place names associated with the ocean—the names of shores, beaches, and other sites where people fish, swim, dive, surf, and paddle. Significant features and landmarks on or near shores, such as fishponds, monuments, shrines, reefs, and small islands, are also included. The names of surfing sites are the most nu...

La Transformación

By: Miguel Argentino Pérez Gaudio

Considerar las informaciones, no como un servicio retórico de palabras, sonidos e imágenes amontonadas, sino como un servicio de mensajes, que se elaboran aportando noticias, daros, opiniones, como alimento intelectual, moral y espiritual para la vida de las personas. Ello requiere de una sólida preparación profesional, más allá de lo empírico, recalificando el rol profesional en la dimensión de un operador cultural, líder y gesto y de las informaciones, autónomo y au...

Emoțiile și inteligența emoțională în organizații

By: Nicolae Sfetcu

O argumentare a importanței dualiste a emoțiilor în societate, individual și la nivel de comunitate. Tendința actuală de conștientizare și control al emoțiilor prin inteligența emoțională are un efect benefic în afaceri și pentru succesul activităților sociale dar, dacă nu suntem atenți, poate duce la o alienare ireversibilă la nivel individual și social. Lucrarea se compune din trei părți principale: Emoții (Modele ale emoțiilor, Procesarea emoțiilor, Fericirea, Filosof...

1. Emoții Emoția este o stare mentală indusă de unul sau mai mulți stimuli interni sau externi, (Panksepp 2004) (A. R. Damasio 1998) (Ekman și Davidson 1994) care determină modificări corporale chimice, răspunsuri comportamentale și o anumită stare. (Cabanac 2002) (D. L. Schacter, Gilbert, și Wegner 2011) Emoția este într-o interdependență permanentă cu starea de spirit, temperamentul, personalitatea, dispoziția și motivația persoanei respective.

El silencio

By: Valentino Valentino

El silencio y sus significaciones

Existe algo más tétrico que el pánico: es el silencio. Un hombre puede aguantarlo todo, el ataque de las fuerzas de la naturaleza, el capricho de los dioses, la entropía sin control del Cosmos, pero no el insufrible silencio. En la Prehistoria, el hombre mataba a seres infinitamente superiores y más grandes que él; sometía a mamuts, osos, cisnes, buitres, para hacer flautas de sus huesos y evitar con ello el duro silencio y así ganarle la batalla. Algunos encuentran e...

Sacred Books

By: M. Winternitz

THE period covered by the inception, the publication, and the completion of the Sacred Books of the East exactly coincides with the thirty-four years that I have spent in Oxford. When I matriculated, Professor Max Muller, the editor of the series, was about to begin work on the first volume, which appeared while I was still an undergraduate. I lost no time in making his acquaintance, for it was the influence of one of his works that had stimulated me to begin under Pro...

Habeltt sua lata libelli-not only after they have been published, but sometimes even before they are printed. It was in the spring of 1894 that the late Professor Max Muller first suggested to me that I should compile a General Index of the names and subject-matter for the complete series of the Sacred Books of the East. Such an Index, he thought, would be a great help to all students of the Sacred Books of tile East, and of the greatest value for the study of the history of religions.

Wormwood

By: John Coby

The novel, WORMWOOD, by John I Coby, is a narrative of times before, during and after a catastrophic, extinction-level event (ELE), caused by the impact of a rouge comet with Earth. It tells tales of Earthlings and Aliens negotiating through a Biblical event, through a mass extinction. The only kind of future that can be predicted by anyone, other than God, is one with mathematical certainty - for example, the orbit of a comet. A gargantuan comet hurtles through interst...
