WHAT BEASTS LUCK IN THE MINDS OF MAN? He stood in the shadows of the forest as he had for countless nights in his past, drinking in the sounds and scents of the night. The smell of rotten leaves, dirt, pine, and cedar on the frosty air seemed to invigorate him. How much joy it gave him to hear the owls and mourning doves calling through the canopy of the trees. He moved soundlessly over the dry dead forest floor, ever alert to the occasional flutter of wings as an owl took flight. For these woods had been his hunting grounds for ten years now. Here was the one place where he could truly relax and unleash his natural desires completely, and often he came here from dusk till dawn, for just that purpose. And each time was rejuvenating for him. Like a butterfly trapped in a cocoon for many weeks, spreading its wings at last.

The Changeling, A Novel, By Walter Besant. CHAPTER I. Was it Substitution pray be seated, madam. The doctor offered his visitor a chair. Then he closed the door with perhaps a more marked manner than one generally displays in this simple operation. I am happy to inform you, he began, that the arangements, he repeated with meaning, are now completed. The lady was quite young-not more than twentytwo or so-a handsome woman, a woman of distinction. Her face was full of sadness her eyes were full of trouble her lips trembled her fingers nervously clutched the arms of the chair. When the doctor mentioned the arrangements, her cheek flushed and then pale. In a word, she betrayed every external sign of terror, sorrow, and anxiety. And when can I leave this place, this day as soon as you please. The woman made no objections None. You can have the child. I have told you my reasons for wishing to adopt this child...

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Over the past three decades, impressive progress in the field of pathogenesis, prevention and therapy of ischemic heart disease has resulted in a marked decline in mortality in the Western World. However, the incidence of this devastating disease is on the rise in developing countries. §The Ischemic Heart is based upon a recent symposium in Tokyo on the subject. This volume is organized into two sections: (i) Pathophysiologic Mechanisms of Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury and (ii) Preconditioning and Protection of Ischemia-Reperfusion Injury, and contains up-to-date information concerning the current concepts of ischemia-reperfusion injury, the sequence of events resulting in the loss of contractile dysfunction, and mechanisms of cardioprotection by several drugs as well as the role of ischemic preconditioning in attenuating problems associated with ischemia-reperfusion injury.

Heart and Lung Exercise Adaptation in Copd and Chf LAP Lambert Academic Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and chronic heart failure (CHF) patients show a marked reduction in exercise capacity. While inadequate gas exchange and resulting hypoxemia appears as the primary factor in COPD, an impaired cardiac output is the predominant explanation for the reduced oxygen delivery in CHF. However, the extent of the contributions of other systemic factors remains unclear. In light of the potential interactions between cardiac output (Qc) and pulmonary hyperinflation, there is surprisingly little data thus far on ventilatory constraints in CHF and on the role of blood flow delivery in COPD which may further limit the exercise capacity. Thus, the purpose of this study was to compare the slope of the Qc versus oxygen uptake (VO2) response through several submaximal cycling loads in patients with moderately severe COPD and with that of moderate to severe CHF patients as well as age-matched healthy control subjects (CTRL). Also examined was the possibility that ventilatory constraints such as dynamic hyperinflation contribute to an abnormal stroke volume response in both diseases.

A Short History of the English People, Vol. 3 (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from A Short History of the English People, Vol. 3 But it was his elder brother, John Wesley, who embodied in himself not this or that side of the new movement, but the movement itself. Even at Oxford, where he resided as a fel low Oi Lincoln, he had been looked upon as head of the group of Methodists, and after his return from a quixotic mission to the Indians of Georgia he again took the lead of the little society, which had removed in the interval to London. In power as a preacher he stood next to Whitefield; as a hymn writer he stood second to his brother Charles. But while com bining in some degree the excellence of either, he possessed qualities in which both were utterly deficient; an indefatigable industry, a cool judgment, a command over others, a faculty of organization, a singular union Of patience and moderation with an imperious ambition, which marked him as a ruler Of men. He had besides a learning and skill in writing which no other of the Methodists possessed; he was older than any Of his colleagues at the start of the movement, and he out lived them all. His life indeed almost covers the century, and the Methodist body had passed through every phase of its history before he sank into the grave at the age Of eighty eight. It would have been impossible for Wesley to have wielded the power he did had he not shared the follies and extravagance as well as the enthusiasm of his disciples. Throughout his life his asceticism was that of a monk. At times he lived on bread only, and he Often slept on the bare boards. He lived in a world of wonders and divine interpositions. It was a miracle if the rain stopped and allowed him to set for ward on a journey. It was a judgment of Heaven if a hail storm burst over a town which had been deaf to his preach ing. One day, he tells us, when he was tired and his horse fell lame, I thought - cannot God heal either man or beast by any means or without any? - immediately my headache ceased and my horse's lameness in the same instant. With a still more childish fanaticism he guided his conduct, whether in ordinary events or in the great crises of his life, by draw ing lots or watching the particular texts at which his Bible Opened. But with all this extravagance and superstition, Wesley's mind was essentially practical, orderly, and conserv' ative.

Multiple Worlds of Pynchon's Mason & Dixon - 2212826984

Multiple Worlds of Pynchon's Mason & Dixon Camden House

Powieści i opowiadania

Thomas Pynchon's 1997 novel "Mason & Dixon" marked a deep shift in Pynchon's career and in American letters in general. All of Pynchon's novels had been socially and politically aware, marked by social criticism and a profound questioning of American values. They have carried the labels of satire and black humor, and "Pynchonesque" has come to be associated with erudition, a playful style, anachronisms and puns - and an interest in scientific theories, popular culture, paranoia, and the "military-industrial complex." In short, Pynchon's novels were the sine qua non of postmodernism; Mason & Dixon went further, using the same style, wit, and erudition to re-create an 18th century when "America" was being formed as both place and idea. Pynchon's focus on the creation of the Mason-Dixon Line and the governmental and scientific entities responsible for it makes a clearer statement than any of his previous novels about the slavery and imperialism at the heart of the Enlightenment, as he levels a dark and hilarious critique at this America. This volume of new essays studies the interface between 18th- and 20th-century culture both in Pynchon's novel and in the historical past. It offers fresh thinking about Pynchon's work, as the contributors take up the linkages between the 18th and 20th centuries in studies that are as concerned with culture as with the literary text itself. Contributors include: Mitchum Huehls, Brian Thill, Colin Clarke, Pedro Garcia-Caro, Dennis Lensing, Justin M. Scott Coe, Ian Copestake, and, Frank Palmeri. Elizabeth Jane Wall Hinds is Professor and Chair of the English Department at SUNY Brockport.

Dark Wolf PIATKUS BOOKS

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

No.1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan now delivers her most eagerly awaited novel of all - ten years in the making. In DARK LYCAN, Christine Feehan journeyed into the heart of the Carpathians, and into the souls of two lifemates stirred by the flush of passion and the threat of annihilation. In DARK WOLF, the breathtaking story continues as the bonds of family are imperiled, and the fate of two lovers lies hidden in the seductive shadows between life and death. Skyler Daratrazanoff always recognized the miracle that was Dimitri Tirunul, a man beyond any dream that had ever engaged her nights. But she was human. Vulnerable. He was Carpathian. Nearly immortal. She was nineteen. He was an ancient. Yet she held half his soul, the light to his darkness. Without her, he would not survive. Caught between the two warring species, Dimitri has spent centuries hunting the undead to keep his people free, and humans safe. He had survived honorably when others had chosen to give up their souls. But now, marked for extermination by the Lycans, Dimitri found himself alone, and fearing for his life. But salvation was coming...No Lycan would ever suspect someone like Skyler to dare mount a secret rescue operation. A teenage girl. A human of untested abilities. But she had something no one else had. She was predestined for Dimitri - as he was for her. And there was nothing stronger for Skyler than her desire to see her life-dream come true. Whatever the risk.

His Finest Hour: A Brief Life of Winston Churchill CONSTABLE & ROBINSON

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

This is a new and dynamic reappraisal of Winston Churchill, and his finest hour in 1940-1. Who was Winston Churchill? Even fifty years after his death he is one of the most iconic figures in British history: as a young man he was a maverick journalist, his many positions in politics before 1940 marked him out as a courageous but foolhardy man. Yet it is Churchill's record in war, which has recently been questioned, that confirms his genius as a military commander and national leader - someone who understood the dangers of Nazi Germany before 1939; someone uniquely capable to lead the empire through the turmoil of the Second World War. Catherwood argues that it was Churchill's stand in 1940-41 that saved Britain and only he was able to bring together the allies that eventually defeated Hitler in 1945. Catherwood has produced a challenging yet accessible reassessment of the life and career of Winston Churchill, lion of British history and flawed hero.

One Thing Is Certain Forgotten Books

Excerpt from One Thing Is Certain: A Novel Anyone who takes the river road and rides for two miles along its green shaded solitudes will find himself at the peak of that little triangular piece of Amos West's meadows, about which he went to law with Zebdial Fountain, and having proved his right to it, enclosed it with the highest, best-built snake-rail fence on the whole of the Eastern Shore of Maryland. It was not a valuable piece of land, but as Amos West said, "a boundary line's a boundary line," and carried his deeds into court to prove it. The contested bit of land was a queer jagged tooth, projecting from the otherwise even square of his prosperous acres, and had been cut into the adjoining tract by the man who once owned both farms under the tale-telling title of "Liden's Venture," because when poverty forced him to divide his possessions he was determined to retain for his own delight the great beech tree that marked the very tip of the tooth, the only tree of its kind anywhere in the neighborhood. For Liden, of "Liden's Venture" was a man who loved trees better than he loved people and was their tireless friend. The smooth silver trunk of the beech, and the gracious sweep of its branches were a delight to him that he wished to preserve.

Report of a Committee of Directors of the Bank of the United States (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from Report of a Committee of Directors of the Bank of the United States The Committee to whom was referred on the 24th of September, a paper signed "Andrew Jackson," purporting to have been read to a Cabinet on the 18th, and also another paper signed "H. D. Gilpin, John T. Sullivan, Peter Wager, and Hugh M'Elderry," bearing date August 19th, 1833 - with instructions to consider the same, and report to the Board "whether any, and what steps may be necessary on the part of the Board in consequence of the publication of said letter and report," beg leave to state - That they have carefully examined these papers, and will now proceed to report the result of their reflections in regard to them. In order, however, to render them more intelligible, it will be proper to recal to the attention of the Board, the actual relation which the Bank has for some years past borne to the Executive. Since the establishment of the Institution it has devoted itself anxiously and exclusively to the purposes of its creation, the restoration of the currency, the maintenance of the general credit, and the accommodation of the internal and foreign trade of the country. That it has not failed in these objects - that it has indeed realized more than the anticipations of the most sanguine, is attested by all parts of the community. It was in the midst of this career of inoffensive usefulness, when soon after the accession to power of the present Executive, the purpose was distinctly revealed that other duties than those to the country were required - and that it was necessary for the Bank in administering its affairs, to consult the political views of those who had now obtained the ascendancy in the Executive. It is understood that soon after that event a meeting was held in Washington of the principal chiefs, to consider the means of perpetuating their new authority, and the possession of the Bank was among the most prominent objects of the parties assembled. The first open manifestation of this purpose was in June, 1829, when a concerted effort was made by the executive officers to interfere in the election of the Board of Directors at Portsmouth. At the head of this attempt was Mr. Levi Woodbury, now a member of the present Cabinet at Washington, who did not hesitate to avow in a letter to the Secretary of the Treasury, which, though marked "confidential," was subsequently ordered to be published by the Committee of investigation in 1832 - that he wished the interference of the Government to remove the President of the Branch at Portsmouth, of whom he says: - "The new President Jeremiah Mason, is a particular friend of Mr. Webster, and his political character is doubtless well known to you " - and he requests the Secretary of the Treasury "to commumunicate with some of the Directors of the Mother Bank in favour of such a change.

Nigerian Pidgin vs. Tok Pisin: A Comparison of the Grammar GRIN Verlag

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Seminar paper from the year 2006 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Linguistics, printed single-sided, grade: 2,3, University of Freiburg (Englisches Seminar), course: Pidgins and Creoles, 7 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: 1. IntroductionNigeria and Papua New Guinea are two of many countries which have adopted English as their main language. But having so many other, substrate languages influencing the development of a English-speaking country, two major pidgin languages developed: Nigerian Pidgin and Tok Pisin. If one wants to compare these two pidgins with each other, it seems almost inevitable to consider their great geographical distance as well as their historical differences.But my intent in this work is not to elaborate on the status and function and development of the two pidgins but on their differences in grammar. Therefore I ll mainly focus on the noun phrase and the verb phrase.2. Morphology2.1Plural marking on nouns in Tok PisinThe majority of the English based Creole and Pidgin languages both at the Atlantic coast and the South Sea waive marking plurality on nouns or rather use it very optionally. Thus, the same applies to Nigerian Pidgin and Tok Pisin. But if there occurs the need to make a clear distinction between singular and plural both pidgins absolutely dispose of a pluralizer. In Tok Pisin the most common way to express plurality is by the use of the particle ol, which at the same time is identical to the third person plural pronoun. Ol, clearly derived from the English all , occurs before the noun as opposed to the post-nominal English plural marking suffix -s. (1)Mi lukim dok. (2) Mi lukim ol dok.I saw the dog. I saw the dogs.(Siegel)But according to Geoff P. Smith (2002), there is a great deal of variability, and the presence or absence of ol is still somewhat unpredictable (p 66). This can clearly be seen in the following example, in which only one noun takes the pre-nominal ol although both have plural meaning.(3) Em i stap nau ma(ma) bl em wokim spia nau em i kam nau ma bl em wokim ol bet.He stayed, his mother made arrows, he came and his mother made beds.(Smith 2002: 66)Although the particle ol is the dominant plural marker, the pluralizing suffix -s has also become a feature of urban Tok Pisin (Romaine 1992:219). In order to explain the use of the plural -s, Smith adopts from Romaine that animacy does have some influence, with a larger proportion of human than animates using the suffix, and that count nouns take -s considerably more often than mass nouns (p 71). It is also very often found that the plural is doubly marked...
