  • Andrei Tarkovsky died in a Paris hospital in 1986, aged just 54. An internationally acclaimed icon of the film industry, the legacy Tarkovsky left for his fans included Andrei Rublev, Stalker, Nostalgia and a host of other brilliant works. In the Soviet Union, however, Tarkovsky was a persona non grata. Longing to be accepted in his homeland, Tarkovsky distanced himself from all forms of political and social engagement, yet endured one fiasco after another in his relations with the Soviet regime. The Soviet authorities regarded the law-abiding, ideologically moderate Tarkovsky as an outsider and a nuisance, due to his impenetrable personal nature.The documentary novel Andrei Tarkovsy: A Life on the Cross provides a unique insight into the life of the infamous film director and a man whose life was by no means free of unedifying behaviour and errors of judgement. Lyudmila Boyadzhieva sets out to reveal his innate talent, and explain why the cost of such talent can sometimes be life itself.Featuring profound comments on history and cinema as an accompaniment to the text, Andrei Tarkovsy: A Life on the Cross enables readers to step into Tarkovsky's shoes as he put together his masterpieces, seeking ways to solve his artistic dilemmas and overcome the obstacles that the Soviet regime put in his way.

  • «…Уже на университетской скамье многие из нашего кружка начали обнаруживать литературные наклонности и в свободные от университетских занятий часы пописывать не только для самих себя, но и для публики. Писали мы и рецензии для «Отечественных Записок», делали переводы (между прочим, перевели сообща «Саламбо» Флобера, а я, сверх того, исправлял слог перевода «Макравиотики» Гуфеланда). В 1862 году в «Отечественных Записках» появилась моя драма в пяти действиях под заглавием «Круглицкие». Долго я возился с этой злополучной драмой, терпя различные fiasco: и обсчитали-то меня в «Отечественных Записках», так как обещались заплатить рублей 300, а заплатили всего 200, без церемонии заявивши, что никак не воображали, что драма выйдет в печати такая большая, а новичкам они так много не платят. Затем, мечтая видеть свое детище на сцене, обращался я и к Максимову I и очень был удивлен, увидя этого знаменитого в то время jeune premier и любимца публики в виде пожилого господина с сморщенным смуглым лицом и с черными зубами…»

  • The Washington hypocrites can’t understand why the Paula Jones lawsuit against the Clinton’s won’t go away. Maybe it's because that lawsuit along with Clinton's lying in a deposition about the Monica Lewinsky fiasco, facilitated the first presidential impeachment in 130 years! Author Stephen M. Jones (Paula’s ex-husband) tells the inside story of what really happened between them and the Clinton establishment. Learn how Hillary Clinton’s scorched earth policy against her husband’s accusers devastated countless lives and epitomized the term above the law. If you think Hillary is an emblematic leader of women and a better choice for president, think again. If you think Bill Clinton was the lesser of two evils between him and his "wife," think again.To the highest branches of government to the smallest business enterprises to the average American citizen, be warned: the Clintons will continue to cheat the law and disavow our inalienable rights because they are Above the Law.

  • Born in 1979 in Leszno, Paulina Otylie Surys is a Polish fashion photographer based in London, UK. Influenced by her study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poland, she started to experiment with the photographic medium working on Polaroids, manipulating and hand-colouring them. She then completed her education in Photography at Middlesex University in London. Applying a mixture of toners, chemicals, inks and dry dyes, photography and painting merge in equal measure in her images. She employs a variety of vintage cameras, working with 35mm, medium and large format film, and uses a wide range of techniques such as tintype and the wet plate collodion processing. Surys practice is inspired by an old and traditional form of colourizations that introduces limited colour into a black-and-white film. Inspired by mythological stories and Medieval sorcerers, alchemists and mystics, Surys’ work centres on creating surreal and unique situations that combine the world of reality with the domain of imagination, illusion and hallucination. Her work has appeared in numerous magazines such as VISION China, FIASCO, IDOL, DROME, Volt, Talk Be., VOGUE.com online, and recently, The British Journal of Photography (portfolio). Limbo is her first monographic album.

  • The French Revolution and the Napoleonic Empire were long gone and the last attempt of the Bourbons to restore the dynasty had been a fiasco. It fell on old and spent Marquis de Lafayette to promote the new French sovereign at the Hôtel de Ville: This were extraordinary times. Victor Hugo, Honoré Balzac, Chateaubriand, George Sand, Alfred de Musset, and the Goncourts were best sellers in Paris at the same time. Chopin, Liszt, Berlioz, Gounod, Wagner, were all making music and competing for the same public. The world of ideas was flourishing. In the midst of all this, Carlos Manuel de Céspedes and his wife María del Carmen moved to Paris and soon welcomed as their guests four of the finest minds in Cuba, the last remaining Spanish colony in the Americas: Domingo del Monte and his wife Rosa, Miguel Aldama and Gertrudis Gómez de Avellaneda.

  • Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Kulturwissenschaften - Sonstiges, Note: 1,0, Universität Passau (Philosophische Fakultät), Veranstaltung: Kulturgeographie, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Hip Hop ist „more than just music", so KRS-One in seinem 2007 erschienenen Lied"Hip Hop lives". Der Rapper Lupe Fiasco geht diesbezüglich einen Schritt weiter undgesteht in dem Lied „Hip Hop saved my Life", dass Rap sein „best homie" inschweren Zeiten war. Ebenso belässt es Johnny Cash nicht dabei, dass CountryMusik nur eine, von Banjo, Gitarre und den zum Takt klopfenden, auf den Bodenschlagenden Cowboyschuhen begleitete Musikform sei, sondern „die Verarbeitungvon Glaube, Liebe und Zweifel" (CARR 1999, S. 279). Betrachten wir dieseAussagen etwas genauer und projizieren die, den Musikrichtungen zu Grundeliegenden kulturellen Umstände auf die Sichtweisen der Künstler, lässt sich unschwererkennen, dass sowohl Hip Hop als auch Country-Musik, Ausdrucksformenindividueller Persönlichkeiten sind, sowie zur Identifikation eigener Empfindungen,Emotionen und Werte beitragen. Obgleich die „Subjects"4 beider Musikgenres oft diegleichen sind, entspringen diese unterschiedlichen kulturellen „Backgrounds"5 undliegen den in den Entstehungsräumen anzutreffenden sozialen Umständen zuGrunde. Somit bleiben zwar die besungenen Themen wie Liebe, Geld, Frust, etc.gleich, jedoch werden damit unterschiedliche „Messages"6 vermittelt. Hip Hop kommtvon der Straße, Country ...

  • Pioneer, fur trader, and frontier diplomat, Christopher Gist, the first Colonial explorer of the Ohio territory, is also Annosanah - speaker of true words. In spite of his Wyandot title, he knows he must deceive the very Indians who have named him. In the guise of an emissary inviting the Ohio tribes to a conference, he searches the Ohio Valley for land best suited for white settlement. On this first journey in 1750 for the Ohio Company, he seeks to replace his lost inheritance through land speculation, thus setting the stage for the eventual displacement of these Indian people. In the next decade France and England fight the last of the French and Indian Wars. A willing participant, Gist sees the destruction of his home, a stormy relationship with an arrogant young George Washington whose life he twice saves, a fiasco at Fort Necessity, and the annihilation of General Braddock's Redcoats. But this life of adversity only prepares him for the most challenging task any frontiersman could face: liaison between two peoples as different as the worlds from which they come.

  • The Audit: How an Honest Mistake Became a Federal Crime tells the true story of how an honest mistake was found during a routine audit of the author’s taxes, how it was investigated illegally, and how she was charged with tax evasion, taken to court by the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), and convicted.The tongue-in-cheek book by retired accountant Francine Messier describes how the CRA will present or omit only the documentation that supports its selected cases, and how it is never brought to task for bullying, lying, intimidation, or threats. Besides which, the CRA has the unfair advantage of having endless financial resources (our tax dollars) to use against a taxpayer who often must concede due to financial constraints.This story is written from a sardonic point of view to tell how this taxpayer was subjected to routine unfair practices by government tax agencies, and ended up charged and convicted of tax evasion as the result of a simple error. The same thing also happens with the IRS in America.Meet an over-zealous auditor, a sneaky investigator, a make-it-up-as-you-go enforcer, a driven, devious prosecutor, and a judge who leaned in favor of the prosecution. This whole fiasco took nine years to play out.“As an accountant, I have fought with the CRA for over 30 years protecting my clients, good people who did not deserve the intimidation and threatening tactics by this agency, sometimes actually inciting fear of loss of home and freedoms. People should be more aware how oft...

  • Political Sabotage may not be the answer for all in understanding social crime and violence or police use of force to control it, but it does provide a focus and single source toward that goal. Want to know about Ruby Ridge and Randy Weaver, Rodney King and a truer story about the fiasco at Waco, Texas? Did law enforcement do it right? Maybe, but maybe not. These questions are also answered: What facts and experience create the subtleties for "the mystique of police culture?" Is a true unprofessional "code of silence" part of it? Is that culture a closed club for those wearing the badge of the Los Angeles Police Department? Is its "culture" and its use of police force in the attempt to control crime and violence responsible for the LAPD's downfall? Does diversity and affirmative action exist as co-conspirators in that downfall? Or will it all remain as the unknown result of the influence and impact of the emotional and ideological attitudes found in our American society and its sometimes politicized, attorney dominated, and unjust justice system? What part did political sabotage play in orchestrating what academic isolation and a supporting media label "the ineffective administration of a corrupt LAPD?" And what led that leadership through a moderate level of hesitation and silence to a federal consent decree and various "commission investigations," and to every activist and media embellished blame, to forgo the effort to retain the...

  • Steven B. Krivit's Explorations in Nuclear Research three-book series (Hacking the Atom, Fusion Fiasco, Lost History) describes the emergence of a new field of science, one that bridges chemistry and physics. The books give readers an understanding of low-energy nuclear reaction (LENR) research and its history and provide a rare behind-the-scenes look at the players and personalities involved. The books present the results of in-depth historical research and draw on formerly inaccessible archives to describe what occurred in the research that has been mistakenly called "cold fusion."Hacking the Atom, written for scientists and non-scientists alike, covers the period from 1990 to 2015 and explains how changes to atomic nuclei can occur with low-energy methods. The book reveals the hidden story of how the science initially and erroneously called "cold fusion" continued to progress slowly but incrementally after its near-death in 1989. The book shows that 100 years of chemistry and physics is not wrong but is incomplete and that there is something new and exciting in the physical sciences.Hacking the Atom:• Explains why LENRs may lead to a new form of nuclear energy without harmful radiation.• Shows why LENRs are not based on "cold fusion" but are instead based on weak interactions.• Gives examples of experimental evidence of isotopic shifts and elemental transmutations that confirm LENRs as real nuclear reactions.• Provides an easy-to-follow tutorial...
