Brain Fuel Evolution Oriole Publishing L.L.C.

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

We've learned a lot about the brain: which nutrients are required to make neurotransmitters, which nutrient deficiencies cause depression, and even which nutrients improve memory and intelligence. Wouldn't it make sense, then, to eat "brain foods" that are high in these "brain fuel" nutrients? Fortunately, the USDA recently analyzed several thousand foods for their nutrient contents, so we now know what these brain foods are and can add them to our diet. That's the practical side of this research. The "cool" side is that, in looking back through human history, we discover that major advances in civilization often occurred after new brain foods came into the diet, during the Axial Age, Ancient Greece, the Renaissance, the Elizabethan Era and 19th century France, to name a few. We also see that, in the cases where the brain foods were removed from the diet, the civilizations began to deteriorate shortly thereafter. We can even go back to Paleolithic times and explain the transition from archaic to modern man using simply the concepts of brain fuels and brain foods. These historical "case studies" underscore the necessity of brain foods in human evolution. Nutrients are the fundamental fuel for the brain, but delivering them to the body is an art. If culture is king, then cuisine is queen. Nonetheless, it has been mainly serendipity that has been responsible for these improved cuisines. Multiple factors, including geography, technology and even politics, have time and again led randomly to an improved mix of brain fuels. We judge civilizations in many ways. One way is to look at the visual arts and assess the technical expertise and the artistic expression represented there. Looking within civilizations we see large changes in one or both of these features after a major increase in brain food availability, as well as major advances in philosophy, literature and other arts. The study of science (natural philosophy) can trace its roots to the serendipitous confluence of all the brain fuels in abundant supply in Ancient Greece. The times and places examined here include the first civilizations (Ancient Egypt, Indus Valley Civilization, Mesoamerica, and Inca Empire), the Pan-Asian Awakening in the 6th Century BC (a few decades of the Axial Age), the three eras with the most abundant brain fuels (Ancient Greece, Renaissance Tuscany and 19th Century France), and places where a partial abundance of brain fuels resulted in advancements in specific fields (Elizabethan England, Dutch Golden Age, Scottish Enlightenment). There are also specific examples of civilizations where brain fuels were intentionally restricted to create aggression in warfare (Roman legions and Mongol horsemen). Currently on the scene there are several popular modern diets (e.g. Atkins, Paleo, Mediterranean), and an analysis of these shows that, while they all express some fundamental tenets that improve the level of brain fuel nutrients, each one exhibits a deficit in one or more of them. We consider these diets from a brain fuels perspective and discuss how to adapt them in an easy and sustainable manner to maximize mental performance.

Selections from the Writings of Hurrish Chunder Mookerji Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Selections From the Writings of Hurrish Chunder Mookerji: Compiled From the Hindoo Patriot A literary man is best remembered by his works. But though on this account we certainly attach great weight to this collection of his writings we do not żatter ourselves with the idea that this volume would be anything like a fitting memorial to the man who, more than any other single man, has been responsible for the inspiration of national life at any rate in Bengal. For, we do not rate the life and work of Hurrish Chunder Mookerji as a merely brilliant career. We can trace to him the source and the nourish ment of that political life in our people whose force and importance we are only beginning to appreciate and which are no doubt big with huge possibilities in the future. For of the little band of earnest men who żourished in the early days of English education in India and helped to drag India out of the slough of ignorance and inertia into which she was fallen, Burrish Chunder was about the foremost. And what a brilliant set of men they were One cannot recall their careers without a refreshing sense of the life and vigour that characterised them. Men deeply imbued with western thought and culture 3 whose studies in the different depart ments of learning of the day went to depths which are out of fashion in these busy days of scrappy, knowledge 3 men who felt the ignorance around them like a dense mist which must be cleared, men inspired with a lofty desire to raise their country from these depths and teach her to emulate the healthy and vigorous ideals of life and thought that England opened before them - these were the men who lived in the days of Hurrish Chunder Mookerji, - and amongst them there was none more brilliant, none more enthusiastic and none who has left a more abiding mark on the history of our people than Hurrish Chunder Mookerji.

Politics of erasure Tako

Wydawnictwa naukowe i popularno-naukoweSztuka

The book Politics of Erasure. From ?Damnatio Memoriae? to Alluring Void on the one hand deals with the strategies of widely understood erasure in visual arts (i.e. exclusion, annulment and depreciation) in terms of particular works of art, museum narrations or urban spaces; on the other hand, it attempts to look at the ways of writing history because here the required and necessary virtue of synthesis sometimes transforms into an injurious scheme.Thus, oscillation between the general consciousness of the method and its precise use within case studies becomes not only a presentation of significant works of the Polish art of the 20th century showed in the general European context, but also a reflection on the craft of the historian, its limitations and possibilities.The ?politics of erasure? in the title does not link only with the ruthless power struggle hostile to any signs of resistance, it can also be a strategy aiming at widening our perception or negotiating what is visible and real. In this last case it does not reconcile itself to the terror of the visible and becomes a persevering attempt to expand the range of imagination and activate memory and intuition.

Foreign Quarterly Review, Vol. 12 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Foreign Quarterly Review, Vol. 12: July and October, M. DCCC. XXXIII The lives which have been devoted most assiduously and successfully to the intellectual pursuits of science, are seldom those which are most fertile in incident, or which afford the best subject-matter for the biographer. Were it otherwise, that of Newton, whose high destiny it was to unravel the mechanism of the universe, and who contributed so largely to the advancement of natural knowledge, would be one of the most interesting and instructive that ever was written. Yet the biography of Newton is little else than a general history of the progress of the mathematical and physical sciences during the age in which he lived. Exclusive of his scientific discoveries, his life presents very few incidents of peculiar interest, or from which we may derive any lessons of practical wisdom. Thirty years of it, after the age of boyhood, he passed in the retirement of a college, closely engaged in profound studies, and having very little commerce with the world. For a short time he occupied a seat in Parliament, where he made no conspicuous figure; and though he afterwards held the office of Master of the Mint, yet he neither took an active part in public affairs, nor connected himself in any way with the political history of his country. The latter part of it - and it was prolonged to the full term of human existence - differed in no respect from that of thousands of ordinary men, in affluent circumstances, of a literary turn, and quietly going through a specified routine of official duty. Accordingly, it is not from anecdotes relating to his domestic life, but in the study of those immortal works which he has left behind him, that we can discover his superiority over other men, or learn the vast extent of the obligation which the world owes to his genius.

Marion Expedition to Davis Strait and Baffin Bay, Vol. 1 Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The "Marion" Expedition to Davis Strait and Baffin Bay, Vol. 1: Under Direction of the United States Coast Guard, 1928 Prior to the loss of the Titanic, on April 14, 1912, as the result of a collision with an iceberg in the North Atlantic, no patrol was maintained in the region of the Grand Banks for the purpose of safeguarding lives and property against the.iceberg peril, and no systematic study had been made of physical and oceanographic conditions pertaining to icebergs and their drift in the North Atlantic. While a patrol of the ice zone was maintained during the seasons of 1912 and 1913 to meet an almost universal demand, arising from the Titanic catastrophe, for protection against the iceberg menace, it was not until the season of 1914 that the United States Government undertook the management of the international service of study and observation of ice conditions and of ice patrol, pursuant to the International Convention for the Safety of Life at Sea signed on January 20, 1914.This was a new and important duty, inaugurating the entry of the United States Coast Guard into an international service of iceberg scouting and patrol, and into a field of scientific study and research not previously developed nor sufficiently known. The early history of the International Service of Ice Observation and Ice Patrol represented a pioneering service and purpose not only to maintain an efficient patrol worthy of the high standards and traditions of the United States Coast Guard, but also to accumulate scientific data to afford an intelligent understanding of the forces of nature having an effect on or a relationship to the iceberg menace. With the growing importance of a knowledge of ocean currents, and of the source, characteristics, and drifts of icebergs in the conduct of this international service, ever opportunity was availed of and every effort directed, each ice season, toward assembling data and making studies of oceanographic conditions in the Grand Banks region. The data gathered during the ice seasons were supplemented by observations made during special cruises at other periods of the year in order to study seasonal changes in ocean currents and water temperatures. Each succeeding season brought to light extensive and important data in furtherance of our knowledge of the elements entering into the study of ice conditions, and strengthening and corroborating opinions held as a result of prior scientific investigations. Reports of these observations were published in the annual bulletins of the International Service of Ice Observation and Ice Patrol.

Heart of the Railroad Problem Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from The Heart of the Railroad Problem: The History of Railway Discrimination in the United States, the Chief Efforts at Control, and the Remedies Proposed, With Hints From Other Countries This work is one of the consequences of a conversation years ago with Dr. C. F. Taylor, of Philadelphia, editor and publisher of The Medical World and of Equity Series. The doctor said that Equity Series should have a book on the railroad question. The writer replied that there was room for a book dealing with the political, industrial, and social effects of different systems of railway ownership and control. A plan was adopted for a book, to be called "The Railways, the Trusts, and the People," which is now on the press of Equity Series. For the preparation of this work the writer travelled through nine countries of Europe and over three-fourths of the United States, studying railways, meeting railroad presidents and managers, ministers of railways, members of railway commissions, governors, senators, and leading men of every class, in the effort to get a thorough understanding of the railway situation. He also made an extensive study of the railroad literature of leading countries, and examined thoroughly the reports and decisions of commissions and courts in railroad cases in the United States. As these studies progressed, the writer became more and more convinced that the heart of the railroad problem lie s in the question of impartial treatment of shippers. The chief complaint against our railroads is not that the rates as a whole are unreasonable, but that favoritism is shown for large shippers or special interests having control of railways or a special pull with the management.

Roman Mosaics Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Roman Mosaics: Or Studies in Rome and Its Neighbourhood So many thousands of volumes have been written about Rome that it is impossible to say anything new regarding it. Every feature of its topography and every incident of its history have been described. Every sentiment appropriate to the subject has been expressed. But Rome can be regarded from countless points of view, and studied for endless objects. Each visitor's mind is a different prism with angles of thought that break up the subject into its own colours. And as is the case in a mosaic, old materials can be brought into new combinations, and a new picture constructed out of them. It is on this ground that I venture to add another book to the bewildering, pile of literature on Rome. But I have another reason to offer. While the great mass of the materials of the book is old and familiar, not a few things are introduced that are comparatively novel. The late Dean Alford made the remark how difficult it is to obtain in Rome those details of interest which can be so easily got in other cities. Guide-books contain a vast amount of information, but there are many points interesting to the antiquarian and the historian which they overlook altogether.

French Romantics: Volume 1 BERTRAMS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This collaborative, two-volume work offers a full survey of the French Romantics as a whole, and seeks to reassess their collective achievement and continuing value. The movement they created is considered within the broad terms of intellectual and cultural history as well as of literary criticism. Alongside chapters on the poetry, the novel, the drama and literary theory, there are therefore studies of the religious and political thought, historical writings, art, music and opera that are no less central to a full appreciation of French Romanticism. Volume 1 begins with a discussion of the movement's rise, development and aims, and this is followed by two chapters devoted to different aspects of the Romantics' fundamental intellectual commitment as embodied in their ideas on religion, politics and society. The other two chapters in this volume consider the two central literary genres of poetry and prose fiction.

Belief and Culture in the Middle Ages Oxford University Press

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Are there angels within spitting distance of men? What did Pope Gregory the Great think of pagans? Were the monks of Battle compulsive forgers? Is temptation always a bad thing? These and many other fascinating questions are explored in this book. Commisssioned in honour of the distinguished medieval historian, Henry Mayr-Harting and reflecting the range and focus of its honorand's interests, the twenty-five essays provide a panoramic and stimulating exploration of the interrelated fields of belief and culture in the middle ages. Sanctity and sacred biography, seduction and temptation, forgery and litigation, patronage and art production, conversion and oppression were all part of the rich fabric of medieval Christian culture that is scrutinized here. Individually the studies shed new light on a series of key issues and questions relating to the cultural, religious, and political history of the sixth-century church, of Anglo-Saxon and Norman England, and of Carolingian, Ottonian, and Investiture Contest Europe; while collectively they illuminate the interaction of Christianity and politics, of secular and sacred, and of belief and culture from late antiquity to the thirteenth century.

Armenian Legends and Festivals (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Armenian Legends and Festivals The author of the study which follows responded to the lure of his task for both theoretical and practical reasons. He seemed, because of his intimate personal relationship to Armenian life, to be peculiarly qualified to study and interpret a cross-section of that country's life. It is particularly urgent that we as Americans have authentic studies of Armenia and Armenian social life. Heretofore there has been a striking lack of such materials readily accessible in English. Because of the not inconsiderable immigration which reaches us from Armenia, and because also there has been a call for the United States to act as mandatory for this country under the peace treaty, we should penetrate more deeply into the Armenian heart than we have been able to do so far, if we are to carry through successfully our job either as assimilator or as friendly guardian. Moreover there is incumbent upon the United States in particular the duty of understanding a country like Armenia, since we have been foremost in proclaiming the doctrine of the rights of small nationalities. Those are the practical purposes from the standpoint of social politics which have given rise to and confer full warrant upon this study. Of no less importance, however, is the contribution which Mr. Boettiger's study makes to theoretical sociology. He has sketched out for us the picture of a refractory culture which refuses to amalgamate with or yield to or be permeated by rival cultures. The social history of this sturdy people offers us a very clear-cut example of what really makes a society or a nation. Not mountains, not dynasties, not blood, but common interests, common traditions, common beliefs; in short, mental community. The theoretical joins with the practical service of this study if it can strengthen our understanding that only as our own blood and that of our Armenian friends reach the place where they boil at the same temperature, or are cooled by the same application of reason, can we minister to each other or carry out the new partnership which may lie immediately ahead of us in the reestablishment of peace and reorganization of world comity.

Excerpt from A Memoir, Explanatory of the Chart and Survey of the County of London-Derry, Ireland When Ireland seemed devoted to political parties, withheld neither by true wisdom nor by kind feelings; when all interference seemed full of danger and void of hope; the author formed the design of abstracting his thoughts from public transactions, and of bending them on the studies of inanimate nature. In this pursuit, materials were collected for the natural history of his native county; a part of this collection was placed in the hands of a respected member of the Dublin Society; and this, with other accompanying remarks, too hastily thrown together, was published, in 1808, under the title of a "Statistical Survey of the County of London-Derry." The imperfections of this work did not escape the author; and, in consequence, a design was formed that, on some future occasion, if possible, these defects should be redeemed. In 1809 the worshipful Company of Fishmongers sent over, to visit their estate in the county of London-Derry, three gentlemen of excellent judgment and patriotic views: They were pleased to honour the author with a visit, and to favour him with their confidence. In various conversations, it was suggested that if a Chart of Territory could be combined with a Topographical Map, on an extended scale, it would be a most useful acquisition for the proprietors of the county.
