Moirae

By: Ms. Mehreen Ahmed

In the cold grip of death and high alert, stands the silent land of the Lost Winds. Moral degradation has triggered a mass exodus. Those who were at great risk and in imminent danger have fled the atrocities of the regime by a boat called the Blue Moon to seek protection in a new land. Battling over the high seas through many violent tempests, their sea unworthy vessel, Blue Moon sailed for days until one evening it was spotted under the roaming beam of the light house on murky waters. The boat has finally reached the shores of Draviland. In the meantime, unfathomable pondering rage in Nalia’s head in Lost Winds, as she explores the chaotic, dark fate of her mates. Unpredictable times have created such people, deemed as riders of the howling seas....

"The presence of the paradoxical absence of the ONE, and His selective random process as to who won and who didn’t was one of those many unresolved puzzles. However, His existence was as immutable as the law of gravity to the faithful. P. 131."...

The Geopolitics of Energy & Terrorism, Part 6

By: Iakovos Alhadeff

The following chapters are independent essays that were written between July 2015 and February 2016. They appear in random order, and therefore they do not have to be read in the order they appear. The issue in all the essays is the connection between the energy policies of various countries, their foreign policies, and the wars that break out at various parts of the globe, since all three are closely related. I describe many economic interests and many alliances in my essays. But alliances change and so do economic interest. Therefore what is more important for the reader is to have an idea of the global resources i.e. oil and natural gas in my essays, because global resources change at a much lower pace than economic interests and economic alliances. The alliances and conflicts I describe in my essays might not exist in the near future, but if you have an idea of the global resources you will be able to see the alliances and the economic interests that will exist in the future....

Psalmen : Das Brot der Seele

By: Ralf Peter Reimann, Editor

Ps – so lautet das Kürzel für das Buch der Psalmen in der Welt der Wissenschaft. Ihre Kraft haben sie bis heute erhalten. Pfarrerinnen und Pfarrer, Prädikantinnen und Prädikanten, Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler, Christen und Juden schreiben über die verbindenden Themen, die den Psalmen zugrunde liegen: Hoffnung etwa, Trost, Trauer, Leid, Zorn, Klage oder Musik. Die Autorinnen und Autoren spüren diesen Begriffen im Buch der Psalmen nach. Die Grafiken in diesem Buch ergänzen die Texte und regen zur Meditation an. Wenn die Grafiken aus diesem E-Book auf eine Leinwand projiziert werden, können sie zur gemeinsamen Andacht genutzt werden....

Die 150 Psalmen haben bis heute ihre Kraft erhalten. „Die Psalmen sind für mich eins der wichtigsten Lebensmittel“, schreibt die evangelische Theologin Dorothee Sölle. „Ich esse sie, ich trinke sie, ich kaue auf ihnen herum, manchmal spucke ich sie aus, und manchmal wiederhole ich sie mitten in der Nacht. Sie sind für mich Brot. Ohne sie tritt die spirituelle Magersucht ein, die sehr verbreitet unter uns ist und oft zu einer tödlichen Verarmung des Geistes und des Herzens führt.“ Das Sölle-Zitat ist Leitmotiv für das Onlineprojekt psalmen.ekir.de, das nun auch als E-Book veröffnetlicht wird. Die Evangelische Kirche im Rheinland als Herausgeberin stellt Texte und Bilder zu den Psalmen zur Verfügung, um diese Impulse aus den Psalmen für unsere Gegenwart neu zu entecken....

The Hero's Chamber

By: Mrs. Ian Andrew Newton; Marcia Adams Ho, Illustrator

This book was written after having an epiphany. I literally woke up from a dream and began writing. This story is appropriate for any reader age 9 and above. You'll find no gratuitous violence, foul language or nightmarish scenes. What you will discover on these pages is an adventure unlike anything I had ever dreamed about before; a fantasy tale worthy of reading aloud and a cast of characters that could only have come from deep within a creative mind. In The Hero's Chamber, two young men take a reluctant journey to find something that hasn't existed in thousands of years. Their guide may not be trustworthy, their fate is almost certain death but without this effort their world, the original Earth, will die. Our adventurers are led by a young woman who must remain unseen, she is forbidden to speak and yet without her there can be no success. Join this unforgettable group as they struggle through an epic journey that none of them expected, none of them asked for and none of them may survive....

In the early morning hours of July 5th 2006, I woke up from a dream. Since then, I’ve tried to write down what I experienced; to express what I saw, to tell the story of my dream. The reason for my effort and the purpose of this book is to get the images, the story, the characters, and the emotions out of my head. With my dream finally down on paper, at least the first half of it, I know that I will be able to put aside the unreasonably detailed visions that have danced through my head for years. After you read it, I hope you understand why I had to write it down. ...

Moneta's Past

By: William B Nix

Arthur Mcnair climbed to the top of society with his world changing invention: The Memory Chip. This device, implanted above the user's right ear, can erase any memory or group of memories. The chip gave the world a chance to forget their problems and pain, and the world bought it. After many years of successfully leading the company as CEO, Arthur found himself faced with divorce papers from his wife and a lawsuit from his partner. On the eve of the court trial that would decide the fate of his company, Arthur was mugged, his memory chip hacked and the last twenty years of his memory erased. Risking his life and sanity, he undergoes an experimental treatment to retrieve the precious memories. Looking for clues about his enemies, his wife’s dealings and his company’s past, Arthur might not like what he finds....

The rain covered the sound of footsteps behind him. He did not shout for help as a strong arm grabbed him from behind and another blow hit him square between the shoulders throwing him to the ground. He made no struggle as his arms were pinned behind his back. A car pulled up and he was thrown headfirst into the backseat. A female voice commanded his attacker, “Quick give me his head.” His head was lifted from the floor of the car and twisted to give unobstructed access to his memory chip. “How far are you going to go back?” Someone asked from the front seat. “Twenty years.” Arthur felt a code being punched into the memory chip on the side of his head, an instant later his vision was clouded by darkness and he sunk into unconsciousness. Time to start over again. ...

شخصية المختار الثقفي عند المؤرخين القدامى

By: سالم الغزي

مقدمة اللجنة العلمية المختار الثقفي... رجل الأسطورة في نصرة الحق لم تعد شخصية المختار بن أبي عبيدة الثقفي شخصية درامية يتخذها البعض في تصوير مشهد تاريخي ما، بل فرضت هذه الشخصية نفسها على الحدث الإسلامي لتكون مفردة تاريخية مستقلة، وهذا يعني أن المختار ذو القابليات المتعددة صار مسرحاً للنقد والدراسة والتحليل، ومنه يُعلم مالهذه الجهود من تجاذبات فكرية تتفقُ أحياناً وتتقاطع أخرى، لتزيد المشهد التاريخي تعقيداً فوق كل تعقيداته المختلفة فهذا المختار الذي تعددت قراءات فكره وتوجهاته بين كيساني النزعة، إلى زيدي الهوى حتى إمامي الانتهاء، وفي نطاق السياسة فهو بين زبيري حتى مرواني إلى علوي الاصطفاف، وهكذا هي دوامة تاريخية لا تنتهي إلاّ بقناعات غير قطعية محالة على الظن أو التهمة أو الكراهية وحتى عبثية التحليل، وينتمي كل دارسٍ إلى ثقافته القبلية التي تفرض عليه ترسيم حدود الشخصية التاريخية التي لم تجد مجالاً للنقد أو التروي حتى تتحكم في تعريفها هذه الدواعي غير العلمية، وتتجه نتائج البحث أخيراً لتؤشر على الحالة الانتمائية التي يبتلي بها الكاتب أو المحلل التاريخي الذي تستهويه هذه المطاردات لتسقط أخيراً من مضمار الهوس والتسابق الذوقي حتى تحط رحالها إلى حيث انتهت معه التؤدة في التحقيق، والتروي في معالجة البحث، وتخرج الجهود التحقيقية بنتائجها القيمة م...

المقدمة الحمد لله رب العالمين والصلاة والسلام على خير خلق الله أجمعين إمام المرسلين وخاتم النبيين سيدنا محمد وعلى آله الطيبين الطاهرين وصحبه المنتجبين، اللهم إنك ثقتي في كل كرب ورجائي في كل شدة، وبعد: مما لاشك فيه أن موضوع الرسالة: (شخصية المختار بن أبي عبيد الثقفي عند المؤرخين القدامى) ذو أهمية كبيرة لما لتلك الشخصية من دورٍ محوري ومهم في الحقبة التي تلت استشهاد أبي الأحرار الإمام الحسين (عليه السلام) وارتباطها بقضية آل البيت والأخذ بثأرهم من قتلتهم وأعدائهم وما آل إليه ذلك من إدخال السرور على آل بيت النبي (صلى الله عليه واله وسلم) وشيعتهم ومحبيهم. ومن البديهي أن يضم التاريخ الإسلامي في طياته الكثير من الروايات الصحيحة إلا أنه لم يخلُ من التناقضات التي لا تخفى على مطلعٍ فضلاً عن الاجتهادات والآراء الشخصية التي تحكمّت بها أهواء مَن كتبوه وميولهم منذ بدايته وحتى يومنا هذا؛ مما نتج عنه تشويه للحقائق ظُلمَ بسببها العديد من رجاله العظماء لاسيما الموالون لآل البيت، فإذا كان بنو أمية قد سبّوا الإمام علياً (عليه السلام) لأكثر من ثمانين عاماً على منابر المسلمين في كل البلاد التي حكموها دون رادع أو خوف من أحد فمن الهيّن واليسير إلصاق التهم وطمس فضائل وتغييب ملامح كل مَن سارَّ في ركبه (عليه السلام) أو نهج خطاه. وشخصية المختار من أكثر الش...

The Reverse Perspective : Fifteen Years of EcoDesign at Philips Consumer Electronics (1993-2008)

By: Ab Stevels

This book describes what happened in the field of EcoDesign at the Consumer Electronics Division (PCE) of Philips Electronics in the years 1993-2008. Fifty stories illustrate the five overlapping stages of its development: Get the facts, stimulate creative thinking, implement and validate, integrate into design and production, and communicate results effectively. EcoDesign has been introduced to PCE through a bottom-up approach with an emphasis on common sense. This ensured a wide acceptance and a strong participation. As a result, EcoDesign turned out to have a significance which went far beyond just environmental improvements. Apart from direct cost reductions, it turned to be an effective concept to critically review decisions taken in the past. In its mature form it has grown into a powerful general management tool. ...

The electronics industry has been dealing with EcoDesign as of the early nineties of last century. There has been a variety of drivers to do so, varying from ethics to complying with (new) environmental legislation. After 25 years a new generation of EcoDesigners has entered the field. This generation operates from the wider sustainability perspective, that is taking apart from environmental also social and economic considerations into account. It is supported by a knowledge base which can be accessed through internet and through smart phones. This is quite a difference compared with the period when EcoDesign started. The scene has therefore changed but many issues to be addressed by EcoDesign have not. The key issues are still energy, materials, packaging and transport, chemical content and recyclability. Making EcoDesign successful in the business is facing similar hurdles as twenty years ago....

1. In what kind of company was EcoDesign being introduced in 1993? 2. EcoDesign inside companies in the Electronics sector. 3. What is EcoDesign? 4. EcoDesign at Philips Consumer Electronics: a special case. 5. The 50 Stories about the development of EcoDesign at Philips Consumer Electronics. 6. Stage 1. Get facts, why are things as they are? 7.

The issue in all the essays is the connection between the energy policies of various countries, their foreign policies, and the wars that break out at various parts of the globe, since all three are closely related. I describe many economic interests and many alliances in my essays. But alliances change and so do economic interest. Therefore what is more important for the reader is to have an idea of the global resources i.e. oil and natural gas in my essays, because global resources change at a much lower pace than economic interests and economic alliances. ...
