I saw a San Marino post office promtional package today at a friend's home. It contains a photograph of two postage stamps and a four-language brouchure for that set of stamps and a large official envelope. These promtional materials were sent to stamp collectors and dealers in the s. How do I call these promtional packages? How do I find these things? Do post offices all over the world publish such materials today? I find the use of CE common era offensive as it is what it is AD Why must you be "religiously neutral".
Everyone for all these centuries has called it what it is. I will refer to it as 'common error" if I ever use your encyclopedia again. The most important thing is that everyone use the same system, so we don't need to find some way to convert dates between systems. What someone chooses to call the system really doesn't much matter. If you want to call it AD, please continue to do so.
If a non-Christian is offended by that and wants to call it CE, let them have their way, too. I would actually prefer that it be based on some nuetral secular event, say the largest eruption of Krakatoa , but this would require worldwide agreement and lots of conversion at this point, so let's just stick with what we have. The Argonauts were in search of the golden fleece in Greek Mythology,,Is the word "Argonaut" also used to describe 49er's of California Gold Rush times?
Gary Day Rocklin California. I have two 20, peso bills from one is serie CS and the other is serie DA. Can anyone tell me the value of these bills and where I could exchange them into US dollars if I ever choose to?
I'm trying to find the link between the red cow and the sanctification of the ground that the temple is to be built on. Is it the blood that santifies the ground.
Also is it the ashes and water that washes away sin? It is Judaism. And I'm in the USA. Is this product safe for children or people who should not drink alcohol? Thank You, DB. What info is available? I would like to trace back my family history and rule in or out affiliation if there is any with James Craggs the Elder.
Can you Nicknamed Les Elephants, this team's greatest achievement until was winning an inter-continental trophy in I am interested in building my own computer, but I have not done anything like this before. I was hoping that someone could provide me with information as to where I can find guides and such for building a machine, where to buy parts from, what sort of parts I should get, and how to store those components if a special storage method is necessary.
I currently use a Dell XPS with a 3. As long as you keep the amount of stuff you buy to a minimum buy your video card and memory last; it'll be cheaper when you're done , take your time, buy an anti-static wrist strap, and follow all directions, you should be fine. Oh, and don't use Windows. Use Linux. Sorry for bolding, but isn't there anyone that has noticed that there is a complete Wikibook on the topic in question??? Hello, I am currently doing some homework for my french class about Fables de la Fontaine and we have to chose one and say how we would make it into a play.
Could you please post you answers before the 9th of January G. Merci d'avance, Daniel. Thank you, for your answer. Despite this, I'd like to make a small searchable database I believe this is the correct term for personal use. I would have a page for each item -- in this case, each item is an episode of a TV series I own. For example, I'd have a list of TV shows - I'd click Frasier, then Season 1, and it would show all 24 episodes, then I'd click one and it would bring up a page about it, with guest stars, trivia, what disc it's on in my DVD cabinet, what special features it has, and more importantly, keywords I've entered for it.
I'd be able to search the database for a keyword to find things. What would I need in order to actually make this? It is basically just using a search-box to find keywords I've attached to a.
HTML page. It would only need to search in the "keywords" section, if it makes it easier. When should I use single quotation marks over double? I'd like to read the article on the Deep Throat informant and Watergate as it read prior to May, Is it possible to read older versions? Which of the 12 original tribes does Prime Minister Sharon belong to? E-mail address removed. There is no article on this, at least i don't think so, what is it called, and what is it used for other than something to do with number, also what are its origins?
I bought a truck. Truck is on my name but a company is using that truck. At present time they are paying monthly payments to the bank. They wrote me letter: lease agreement for 60 month and that they agree to pay my loan for truck. But it's just letter. I understand I need some legal contract. May be I could find online the car lease form? And have I notarise it or not?
Thank You, Natalia. What kind of music is safe to download in the US using a P2P software? How can I figure out whether a particular file is legal to download? I am especially talking about music made outside the US, and possibly having or not having copyrights in other countries.
It is a dance song with a Arabian tone to it. I would very much appreatiate if anyone knew the name. Also, I looked at the sound track and it wasn't on it. Hi, I need your guys help relating to the country Russia. Russia is a country in Asia. But we dont call them Asians like the other countries China, Japan, Korea etc I saw when I was about to take a test, and you have to bubble in what nationality you are, so I saw it said Russia and other countries listed.
Then thier was a bracket to combine all those countries, and a word next to it that tells you what nationality they really are or what you would call them. The ruling class has always been of European ancestry and culture, starting with Vikings , I believe. This is why it's considered a European country even though most of it is in Asia. In a reverse example, Turkey could perhaps be considered an Asian country, even though part of it is in Europe, since it's people are primarily of Asian descent.
I know a man whose mother passed away and his step father remarried Is there any specific name for the type of oft-caricatured "disguise" that consists of glasses attached to a fake nose, attached to a fake moustache? The amount of dioxin in plastics is so little as to be arguably clinically meaningless.
Plastics are continuously off gassing, so I would assume some would be released while it was frozen. See dioxin for more information. See Passport. Is there a way i can tell if my Friend copied my DVD without letting me knowing, beside's asking him?
I suppose there might be some single bit errors which would then be replicated on the copy. If you had such an original and a possible copy, the presence of the same single bit errors would indicate a copy, or possibly that both were copied from a common source. If your copy is perfect, however, I don't see how you could tell. And if, as I suspect, you have no access to the potential copy, then there is no way to know. Is it true that no Jews are allowed to enter Saudi Arabia? What's the reason?
I read on the Passport article that Jews, irrespective of nationality, are not allowed in Saudi Arabia! Would they ask your religion before they let you enter? I know that several Islamic countries do not allow Israelis. Do some of them also similarly ban all Jews?
I have noticed that Pele the soccer player is described as a forward. Does this mean that he was a striker or an attacking midfielder? A jersey number alone does not determine a players position on the field so please consider this before you give me an answer. What country? Who were the leaders in the Victorian Era? What were the politics like? And who were Queen Victoria's friends?
I am trying to locate vital records of Warren County in the early to mid's. Where can I find such records? Is it possible for scientists to make a device that allows the user to change into any biological form excluding single-celled organisms and plantlife using the creatures DNA? I heard sometime in the 70's or 80's that there was a drought in Southern California that lasted 5 years.
It was said that when it finally rained schools were called off because the young children living in the area had never seen rain fall from the sky. I would like to have this story verified. I have google earth c on my computer, and in the Washington D. That area seems to have been manipulated. Do you really???
It's a security issue. The Naval observatory is a major military location not to mention the site of the VPs home. Not the sort of thing the US government wants made available. Look up other major military sites and you'll see the same thing. After reading the Wikipedia article and linked pages I'm still puzzled. The region below the eyes will reflect light, but unless the athlete is wearing goggles or glasses, I don't see how it reduces glare, since there is no surface for the reflected light to strike.
Hello, I am having trouble finding out how to get through the endless staircase in Act II. I was wondering if someone could help me with that. Zach , 10 January UTC. It might also be useful for you to know that the World Health Organization is an organization within the United Nations. Generally, every nation that is a member of the UN is also a member of each of its organizations.
Their individual level of involvement may vary however. I'd like to know who first said the phrase or most similar to : "the first time is an outlier, second is coincidence, third a trend". I've found some information below but I can't find the definitive first source, ie. Thanks in advance! Clarke "Once is an accident, twice is a coincidence, three times is enemy action. AcceptanceCriteriaSummary Jerry Weinberg: "Once is an event; twice is a coincidence; three times is a pattern.
This is considered important, since otherwise a pattern cannot be distinguished from a clever design which has yet to be proved to be a recurring pattern. Consider Jerry Weinberg: "Once is an event; twice is a coincidence; three times is a pattern.
Many thanks. What does PW stand for in computer role-play game parlance? What was the earliest colour film made? I think the The Wizard of Oz film might be one of the earliest major movies with real color, although there were certainly smaller films with color far before that.
As for photography, their was a Russian photographer, Prokudin-Gorskii who took 3 pictures of each scene, with different color filters on each, in Tsarist Russia. In recent times those sets of images were each reassambled into a single high quality color photograph. And if there isn't, can we invent one?
I was writing this simultaneously and had an edit conflict. I'll post it anyway; apologies for the partial duplication. According to New York City , the city's population is 8. But these aren't exact numbers; the population is probably being rounded to the nearest 0.
There is no point in giving the population density to any greater accuracy: all you can say is that it's about 26,, and the "5" is questionable. There are more precise ways to express the uncertainty, of course. And then it's even worse than that. So I did some web searching and found that Wikipedia's New York metropolitan area article, as well as the Encarta and Information Please web sites, agree on an area of square miles for the city.
Encarta gives areas of individual boroughs to one decimal place in some cases, too, and the five areas as given total But the city's official web site gives the area as square miles, and some other sites show that number too. So we can say at least that the is not necessarily accurate to the nearest square mile. The original poster's reference to blocks suggests that that was the intended meaning. Likewise for the answers by Lomn and Hydnjo. Blocks in the other boroughs are a good deal more varied.
Manhattan has an area of only 23 square miles still not single digits, but getting there and a population of over 1. I have found a site in ohio that has untouched fossil remains of plants and small living items of long ago. I plan a site draft soon. Now my question is how do i find out how old this this region in north east Ohio is? Is there a site I can go to. Here is a start: geological maps of Ohio .
I am assuming you know how to match up geological era with typical fossils. I think you should revise your question to "how old is this site at a depth of You could mean the surface, or a depth of zero, or some other depth. Typically, but not always, the deeper you go, the older you go. I've been looking for calendars of the year to check on which date in that year Guru Nanak's birthday anniversary was celebrated.
Please let me know if such calendars or references exist. I am an employer who has several general contractors. I recently was told that one of my contractors gave me the wrong social security number for his form Does he have to pay income for his mistake or can he get away with not reporting the back?
Return to Book Page. A crusading lawyer is determined to free him. This powerful book reads like a page-turning legal thriller with one crucial difference: Justice is not served in the end. In , Kris Maharaj was arrested in Miami for the murder of his ex- business partner. A witness swore he saw him pull the trigger and a jury found him guilty and sentenced him to death. Enter Clive Stafford Smith, a charismatic public defender with a passion for lost causes who calls up old files and embarks on his own investigation.
It takes him from Miami to Nassau to Washington as he uncovers corruption at every turn. Step by step, Clive slowly dismantles the case, guiding us through the whole scaffolding of the legal process and revealing a fundamentally broken system whose goal is not so much to find the right man as to convict. A bombshell whose final chapter should re-open a long closed case, The Injustice System will appeal to fans of true crime and anyone who has served on a jury.

His album meets at the crossroads of kicking electronics, pop, indie, songs and IDM. No genre-problem for Phonocake, above all it's the idea to present new musicians. We call it intelligent pop music.. No more fear" - Compared with Graf's earlier releases, there is an apparent mood change in this track: a dark determination, which probably doesn't remind just me of the heights of EBM. Powerful, almost whipping beats contribute to the mood; the use of the vocals underlines the atmosphere characterized by sadness and retribution.
Actually, it's still not releasing one, as we get to hear but a fragment Topics: Abstract, netlabel, phonocake, electronic, idm, Electronica Source: release page phonocake. Phonocake release 18 features three new tracks by Al Magnifico, all three being fundamentally different from each other, and different from a lot of other things too. Without any problems, Al Magnifico provides ample scope for what we call "electronic music", elegantly bridges the gap between different musical genres and has quite possibly Topics: Electroacoustic, netlabel, phonocake, electronic, idm, Electronica Source: release page phonocake.
Don't be afraid of a fresh mixed up everything music, which is hard to categorize, but makes fun to listen to or also to just let it go in a summerly background.

Daniel Williams, moving some years ago from Great Britain to Dresden, in order to be close while creating sounds and music for a world famous theatre group in the city, is active under his music pseudonyms Ghost Radio and vintage We are allowed to present his newest soundtrack here, one that we enjoy a lot.
Soothing and at the same time so beautifully varied that the track is far from boring. It conveys a feeling of anticipation or preparation. The calm before the storm, perhaps? Definitely of aesthetic value.

Dirty industrial influences and complicated, very complex rhythms are combined in various ways and whip down upon the listener. This creates an agitated, nervous mood which is further elaborated through the use of sequences from video games. Breakout Session, yeah. Breaking through the next domestication level. Still, you are just the cog in the cause-and-effect chain. Become a ball-lightning.
Send your own mind's dictatorship to sleep and break the chain the elk in the porcelain shop and let your thinkings distort the way you act. Be prepared for faster and slightly harder pieces in Topics: phonocake, electronic, idm, netaudio, experimental, electronica, soundscapes, ambient. Serene, and slowly but steadily constructed, it is of a pleasant complexity and is positively self-contained. Beautifully frisky with a dance-y structure, suitable for children and adults.
Single parts, repeatedly demixed, modulated, filtered, chopped and newly formed into structures. It's music, that functions like a multiple repainted picture.
To listen to makes you an adept. The room between abstract sound and concrete noise is measured here. When tones become noise, images will be available, that aren't completely medially tied yet. Surprisingly, melodies of a contemplative and dreamy quality complement the rhythmic elements and turn the track into a new direction.
Clutching the camera to capture the impressions, you realize that this atmosphere cannot be reproduced on a simple photograph. Hence the song.
A rhythmic throbbing permeating the track amplifies this effect and makes the track seem to come alive. This slow and irregular hip or trip?
Rhythmic, groovy, slightly deranged, and it's somehow cool too. The duo MOC presents a release that they worked on for five years. The resulting quality of this long process can be heard accordingly. Say Hello to synth electronica artist Mikk Rebane from Tallinn, Estonia, presenting his newest album here at Phonocake. His music is softly depressing and mildly pushing at the same time, kind of an athletic and powerful melancholy. An electrifying poetic view on life. Third round of our new interview series also brings a little insight on Mikk Rebanes life and music.
The active guys from the Modul-group surprised us one day with a small Remix-Action, whose results create a space of meeting artists from eastand west. With us are some new names and impressions as well as interpretations by well-known artists like Madstyle and Anaxy.
The original track was already released under Creative Commons License at zhe russian Electrosound Netlabel. He boasts of all of the good that he has done for the Black community a lot. For those of you that dont know, this is called tokenizing. Look it up. If you are white, like me, and you are trying to truly help People of Color, you dont boast about it. You remain humble.
Boasting about what you are doing for the Black community falls in line with the white savior complex-look it up. This bothered me a lot when I was a supporter of his. I publicly spoke out about it and got a ton of flack. It is wrong. He needs to make it right. It is disgusting. He recently stated that Kamala Harris could not be President because she "comes through the back door".
For those of you who dont understand what that means- Back pre- Rosa Parks days, in order to ride the bus, People of Color had to come to the front of the bus to pay their bus fee. They then had to exit the bus, go around to the back of the bus and enter through the back.
It's majestic and effortless, infusing each with the heartache conveyed in apparently every note he ever sang. Hypnotic, exciting and at once recognisably Congolese yet unlike anything else we've heard come from thriving Kinshasa, Mbongwana Star's debut album is really only world music in the sense it doesn't come from North America or Europe. Like many of the albums on this list, you can't be entirely sure it came from this world at all. Try Konono No1 Congotronics.
If stoner rock were a video game, Josh Homme would be who you'd have to defeat in its boss level. On Songs For The Deaf , Queens Of The Stone Age ramped up the intensity somewhat while retaining their effortless sunglasses-in-a-darkened-room chill, writing some of the heaviest and off-beat-est riffs on any of their six albums to date. Story goes that Mos Def interrupted a session and ended up recording with them as well, and over 11 weeks an army of artists including Ludacris, Q-Tip and RZA contributed to a truly unique rap record.
Buy it on Amazon: Blakroc Blakroc. Try The Roots Rising Down. As with many of the other artists on this list, we could have pinned the tail on the Nick Cave record to decide which we'd include. Try Tom Waits Mule Variations. You almost thought we'd left Bowie off the list, didn't you?
What better way to round off this group of 50 albums than with Blackstar , a Tony Visconti gem on which Bowie's creative genius is complemented gorgeously by jazz saxophonist Donny McCaslin and his quartet.

Try Sun Ra A Fireside Chat With Lucifer My Bloody Valentine — Loveless Arguably the poster album for shoegaze, Loveless is a masterpiece combining elephantine riffs with dream-pop haze, awash with reverb and overdriven guitars - and complimented by an equally iconic sleeve of cherry-drop psychedelia.

Try Neutral Milk Hotel In The Aeroplane Over The Sea Stevie Wonder — Innervisions An innovative melting pot of funk, gospel and soul, Innervisions is a record whose production toes the line marvellously between precision and abandon with ballerina-like poise.
Try Peggy Lee Black Coffee Marvin Gaye — What's Going On Does Gaye's soulful satin vocal, soaring as it does above What's Going On 's spacious jazz- and blues-drenched arrangements, belie somewhat this remarkable record's themes of social injustice?
Try Burning Spear Social Living LCD Soundsystem — This Is Happening There are those who believe James Murphy worked out the algorithm for chart-bothering indie music and created LCD Soundsystem in its image - but something so calculated would not explain the digital-with-analogue glory and wit of their three albums. Try Hot Chip In Our Heads Lewis — L'Amour When this private press was picked up by a collector at a Canadian flea market and subsequently shared online, the mystery of the man known as Lewis caught the imaginations of record lovers as much as the music itself.
Try Shye Ben Tzur Heeyam Boards Of Canada — Tomorrow's Harvest Boards Of Canada's blend of field recordings with often ambient synth lines has inspired a hoard of software plug-in developers who'd seek to emulate their immediately recognisable signature sound.
