The time has come to rethink wilderness. This will seem a heretical claim to many environmentalists, since the idea of wilderness has for decades been a fundamental tenet—indeed, a passion—of the environmental movement, especially in the United States. For many Americans wilderness stands as the last remaining place where civilization, that all too human disease, has not fully infected the earth.
It is an island in the polluted sea of urban-industrial modernity, the one place we can turn for escape from our own too-muchness. Seen in this way, wilderness presents itself as the best antidote to our human selves, a refuge we must somehow recover if we hope to save the planet. The more one knows of its peculiar history, the more one realizes that wilderness is not quite what it seems. Far from being the one place on earth that stands apart from humanity, it is quite profoundly a human creation—indeed, the creation of very particular human cultures at very particular moments in human history.
It is not a pristine sanctuary where the last remnant of an untouched, endangered, but still transcendent nature can for at least a little while longer be encountered without the contaminating taint of civilization. Wilderness hides its unnaturalness behind a mask that is all the more beguiling because it seems so natural. As we gaze into the mirror it holds up for us, we too easily imagine that what we behold is Nature when in fact we see the reflection of our own unexamined longings and desires.
To assert the unnaturalness of so natural a place will no doubt seem absurd or even perverse to many readers, so let me hasten to add that the nonhuman world we encounter in wilderness is far from being merely our own invention.
PENMON FAMILY HISTORY AND RELATED TOPICS
William Cobbett was born in at Surrey, England. An author, farmer and journalist, he yearned for something more than his simple country life could afford, and became intimately familiar with the English language while enlisted with Nova Scotia.
These works he etched, printed, coloured, stitched, and sold, with the assistance of his devoted wife, Catherine. In the early 21st century, Blake was regarded as the earliest and most original of the Romantic poets, but in his lifetime he was generally neglected or unjustly dismissed as mad. His father came from an obscure family in Rotherhithe, across the River Thames from London, and his mother was from equally obscure yeoman stock in the straggling little village of Walkeringham in Nottinghamshire.
His mother had first married a haberdasher named Thomas Armitage, and in they moved to 28 Broad Street. In the couple joined the newly established Moravian church in Fetter Lane, London. The Moravian religious movement, recently imported from Germany, had had a strong attraction to the powerful emotions associated with nascent Methodism see Moravian church.
Catherine Armitage bore a son named Thomas, who died as a baby in , and a few months later Thomas Armitage himself died. Catherine left the Moravians, who insisted on marriages within the faith, and in married James Blake in the Church of England chapel of St. George in Hanover Square.

Usui Sensei , founder of the Reiki System of Healing. Mikao Usui, or Usui Sensei as he is called by Reiki students in Japan, was born August 15, in the village of Taniai in the Yamagata district of Gifu prefecture, which is located near present-day Nagoya, Japan. As he grew older, he traveled to Europe and China to further his education.

In this special state, one is always at peace regardless of what is taking place in the outer world.

Nikola March 26, 11 Comments While I could write a book on the topic of magazine history I will briefly describe the history of the magazines and tell you some of the most interesting details about them. Although this is long article it is probably one of the shortest on the topic of the magazine history because I have not mentioned many magazines that left their significant mark in the publishing industry.
Le Mercure Galant was one of the first printed publications. Household Words was an English weekly magazine published in the s by Charles Dickens. It was a literary and philosophical edition and after it was launched several periodicals with very similar topics were published, and were intended for an intellectual audience. Thematic scope was very narrow, and it was mainly written by one author.
It combines topics from court events, theater and literature, and this magazine concept was copied throughout Europe. Of course, these publications in their beginnings were called periodicals. The name magazine, which comes from the Arabic word which means the warehouse, and was used for describing the place which deposits large quantity of various goods, while the analogy used to describe a book that contained many useful information for travelers and sailors.
The success of the magazine was great, but the costs of every issue were even higher. Printing cost was high, and the number of printed copies could not be greater than one hundred thousand, because it was technically impossible to squeeze a larger amount of paper through the machine. Distribution was also a big problem because it was difficult to move large quantities of magazines at great distances.

Why the Bible Cannot be the Word of God. Did Moses “write” the Exodus account or someone else, in other words is the Exodus an eye-witness account of the events? Obviously someone else is writing about Moses and describing his activities Cf. The Philistines are portrayed as being in Canaan in the days of Abraham circa B.

Catholic Exodus date or B. Establishing the date “when” the Exodus account was written in the Holy Bible. The archaeological excavations revealed that some of the sites were in existence only in the 7th century B. How “reliable” is the Exodus account? Is it all true? A “mix” of truth and fiction?

History of Technology Heroes and Villains – A little light reading Here you will find a brief history of technology. Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many personalities, eccentrics and charlatans involved.
You may find the Search Engine , the Technology Timeline or the Hall of Fame quicker if you are looking for something or somebody in particular. Scroll down and see what treasures you can discover. Background We think of a battery today as a source of portable power, but it is no exaggeration to say that the battery is one of the most important inventions in the history of mankind. Volta’s pile was at first a technical curiosity but this new electrochemical phenomenon very quickly opened the door to new branches of both physics and chemistry and a myriad of discoveries, inventions and applications.

Wikipedia Late Ordovician survivals and extinctions: There were no land animals and extinctions were confined to water life. There were two distinct extinctions roughly a million years apart.
The first of these began about million years ago. Together, these extinctions may have removed about 85 percent of species of marine animals. All of the major animal groups of the Ordovician oceans survived, including trilobites, brachiopods , corals, crinoids and graptolites, but each lost important members. Widespread families of trilobites disappeared and graptolites came close to total extinction.
