…XYZ — дебютный студийный альбом британской инди-рок-группы Moose, вышедший в 1992 году.

…XYZ представляет собой отход Moose от стилистики туманного шугейзинга ранних мини-альбомов в сторону инди-поп-направления. Песня «Soon is Never Soon Enough» была записана при участии вокалистки ирландской рок-группы The Cranberries Долорес О’Риордан.
В целом альбом был встречен критиками благосклонно

. Саймон Рейнольдс из Melody Maker охарактеризовал …XYZ как «наиболее удачное сочетание Moose’вской шизофрении и эстетизма». Том Дойл из Q отметил, что дебютный альбом британского коллектива ещё не вписывается в независимую музыку, но уже даёт ясное представление о наличии у группы творческого потенциала.
Уиндхэм Уоллес в ретроспективном обзоре The Quietus написал, что альбомом …XYZ Moose «проявили себя как группу, которая своей любовью к родной стране, со всей её ностальгией и романтикой, смягчает её же типичную наследственную невозмутимость».

Damascus University – Faculty of Medicine

The Faculty of Medicine of Damascus University (Arabic: كلية الطب البشري في جامعة دمشق‎), founded in 1903, was the first university college established in Syria.
The school moved to Beirut temporarily during World War I. At one point later it was called the Arab Medical Institute.

The College of Medicine is the centre of the University of Damascus. It was founded in 1903 when the medical school opened up branches in medicine and pharmacy following the Ottomans.
The medical school moved from Damascus to Beirut in 1915 and used the Jesuit Medical College as its headquarters during the First World War. It reopened in Damascus after the armistice of 1918 and the withdrawal of the Ottomans from Syria and Lebanon. During the era of Arab government it was called the Arab Medical Institute. The use of Arabic as the medium of instruction was in response to the policy of colonization, which had tried to impose French. The founders were convinced that their students would absorb, reflect, and express themselves better in their native language.
For both the civilian and the military hospitals of the city of Damascus Medical Institute, Dr. Reza Said was elected chairman in 1920. In 1924 the publication of the Medical Journal of the Arab Institute began.
From its earliest days the Institute saw the need not just to train Syrians, but also many young men and women from across the Arab world. On average, half of the students were non-Syrian. In the 1950s over half the doctors in the Mashreq were graduates of the institute.
The university widened its remit[clarification needed] after the evacuation of the French in 1946. The Institute began faculties of medicine

. It had all the lecture halls and laboratories necessary for teaching. The college issued a doctor of medicine, bachelor of pharmacy, doctor of dental medicine and a certificate in nursing and midwifery in obstetrics. Successive reforms after 1946 have expanded the school and increased the number of students considerably. An act promulgated in 1958 during the unity of Egypt and Syria amended the Syrian name to the University of Damascus.
The College of Medicine adopts a strategy of scientific research by the Ministry of Higher Education in cooperation with various governmental bodies. Contributing members of the faculty in the College of Medicine are an important part of science activities as established annually by the Supreme Council for Science of the Ministry of Higher Education. The research presented in the course of medical researchers, as well as new faculty members are allowed access to translated research acquired through doctorates from the university to the Arab world

Stuck In Neutral

Stuck in Neutral is a young adult novel by Terry Trueman. It focuses deeply on the subject of cerebral palsy, quality of life, and euthanasia. The main character is Shawn McDaniel who suffers from cerebral palsy. The story, told from Shawn’s perspective, also focuses on how his family copes with the condition. Shawn’s mother, brother, sister

, and father are all talked about in the book. Stuck in Neutral received recognition as an Honor Book for the Michael L. Printz Award in 2001.
Trueman wrote the novel because his own son suffers from cerebral palsy, and he wanted to educate young readers both about the condition and about showing tolerance for those with severe disabilities.

The book follows Shawn McDaniel’s first-person point of view. He is a 14-year-old boy with cerebral palsy, a neurological disorder, affecting motor control. In Shawn’s case, his entire body is affected; he has absolutely no control over any of his bodily functions. Shawn’s condition is a major part of the story.
In the first few chapters, Shawn McDaniel explains to the reader his condition. He includes what he feels to be positive sides of his condition, such as his perfect memory. Shawn remembers every experience, every sensation, and everything he’s ever learned from school or television. Shawn introduces his family to the reader. His mother is his main caretaker and his father is a writer who has won a Pulitzer Prize for a poem about Shawn.
The main story is about euthanasia. Shawn feels that his father Sydney McDaniel is trying to kill him. Sydney constantly talks about euthanasia. On an interview during a Jerry Springer-style show Sydney interviews a man who killed his son with a similar condition, who reveals that he just wanted to end his son’s pain Christian Louboutin Outlet Australia. In the end, the reader is left to wonder if Sydney follows the other man’s example, or allowed Shawn to continue his life. Shawn frequently expresses that he dislikes being talked down to as if he were a baby. He stresses throughout the novel that he is just as intelligent, or more intelligent, than others around him. We are also introduced to his school life in the middle of the novel.
Stuck in Neutral caused controversy at a school in Evansville, Wisconsin, where the book was required reading. Parents felt the subject matter was too sad and violent. Trueman strongly defended his book and school officials in Wisconsin eventually agreed. Stuck in Neutral remains required reading in Special Education classrooms.
In 2013 Allison Cameron Gray and Matt Corpenning adapted the novel into the play Stuck in Neutral. The show ran from May 10, 2013 – June 10, 2013 at the Secret Rose Theatre in North Hollywood, CA, Directed by David P. Johnson with positive reviews. The cast included Jonathan D. Black as Shawn McDaniel, Mary Carrig as Lindy McDaniel, Tommy Cramer as Paul McDaniel, Amy Greenspan as Cindy McDaniel, Swati Kapila & Breana Tomey as Ally, Leslie Thurston as Alice Ponds, David Michael Trevino as Cyd McDaniel and John Walcutt as Earl Detruax respectively.

Craig Unger

Craig Unger is an American journalist and writer. He grew up in Dallas, Texas, and attended Harvard University. His most recent book Boss Rove: Inside Karl Rove’s Secret Kingdom of Power. He also wrote The Fall of the House of Bush, about the internal feud in the Bush family and the rise and collusion of the neoconservative and Christian right in Republican party politics, viewing each group’s weltanschauung and efforts concerning present and potential future US policy through a distinctly negative prism. A previous work, House of Bush, House of Saud explored the relationship between the Bush family and the House of Saud. Craig Unger’s work is featured in Michael Moore’s film Fahrenheit 9/11. Unger has served as deputy editor of the New York Observer and was editor-in-chief of Boston Magazine. He has written about George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush for The New Yorker, Esquire Magazine and Vanity Fair. He has written about the Romney family and Hart InterCivic.

On April 11, 2004, Unger wrote an op-ed for the Boston Globe demanding answers from the 9/11 Commission on who gave permission for Saudi nationals to leave the United States. He repeated the theme of his book, House of Bush, House of Saud, that was also featured in Fahrenheit 9/11: “Is it possible that President Bush himself played a role in authorizing the evacuation of the Saudis after 9/11?” Unger reportedly traced $1.4 billion in investments by the Saudis to friends and business organizations closely associated with the Bush family.
Newsweek’s Michael Isikoff had harsh criticism of the $1.4 billion figure, the Saudi connection, and the flights out of the U.S. According to Isikoff: “Nearly 90 percent of that amount, $1.18 billion, comes from just one source: contracts in the early to mid-1990s that the Saudi Arabian government awarded to a U.S. defense contractor, BDM, for training the country’s military and National Guard.” According to Newsweek, George W. Bush couldn’t have been involved with the Carlyle Group, which owned BDM, when the $1.18 billion deal was made, because “former president Bush didn’t join the Carlyle advisory board until April, 1998—five months after Carlyle had already sold BDM to another defense firm.”
On his website, Unger replied that Isikoff wrongly suggests that the Bush family and its allies had little or no relationship with the Carlyle Group until 1998. “If that were true

, he might have a point.”
But in fact, the Bush-Carlyle relationship began eight years earlier when the Carlyle Group put George W. Bush on the board of one of its subsidiaries, Caterair, in 1990. In 1993, after the Bush-Quayle administration left office and George H

. W. Bush and James Baker were free to join the private sector, the Bush family’s relationship with the Carlyle Group began to become substantive. By the end of that year, key figures at the Carlyle Group included such powerful Bush colleagues as James Baker, Frank Carlucci, and Richard Darman. Because George W. Bush’s role at Carlyle had been marginal, the $1.4 billion figure includes no contracts that predated the arrival of Baker, Carlucci and Darman at Carlyle. With former Secretary of Defense Carlucci guiding the acquisition of defense companies, Carlyle finally began making real money from the Saudis, both through investments from the royal family, the bin Ladens and other members of the Saudi elite, and through lucrative defense investments.
Michael Isikoff also argued there was nothing extraordinary about the evacuation of the Saudis because the Tampa airport had reopened. Unger disagreed, noting, “Commercial aviation slowly resumed on September 13, but at 10:57 am that day, the Federal Aviation Administration issued a Notice to Airmen stating that private aviation was still banned. Three planes violated that order and were forced down by American military aircraft that day. Yet the Saudis were allowed to fly on the ten passenger Learjet. … The Tampa to Lexington flight is vital because it required permission from the highest levels of our government. If it were just another normal flight, why would anyone go to a crisis-stricken White House to get permission for the Saudis to fly?”

Civita di Bagnoregio

Civita è una frazione del comune di Bagnoregio, in provincia di Viterbo, nel Lazio, facente parte dei borghi più belli d’Italia Christian Louboutin Shop Online, famosa per essere denominata “La città che muore”.

Abitata da una decina di persone e situata in posizione isolata, è raggiungibile solo attraverso un ponte pedonale in cemento armato costruito nel 1965. Il ponte può essere percorso soltanto a piedi, ma recentemente il comune di Bagnoregio, venendo incontro alle esigenze di chi vive o lavora in questo luogo, ha emesso una circolare in cui dichiara che, in determinati orari, residenti e persone autorizzate possono attraversare il ponte a bordo di cicli e motocicli. La causa del suo isolamento è la progressiva erosione della collina e della vallata circostante, che ha dato vita alle tipiche forme dei calanchi e che continua ancora oggi, rischiando di far scomparire la frazione, per questo chiamata anche “la città che muore” o, più raramente, “il paese che muore”.
La valle dei calanchi è situata tra il lago di Bolsena ad ovest e la valle del Tevere ad est, nel comune di Bagnoregio. È costituita da due valli principali: il Fossato del Rio Torbido e il Fossato del Rio Chiaro. In origine questi luoghi dovevano essere più dolci e accessibili ed erano attraversati da un’antica strada che collegava la valle del Tevere al Lago di Bolsena.
La morfologia di quest’area è stata provocata dall’erosione e dalle frane. Il territorio è costituito da due formazioni distinte per cronologia e tipo. Quella più antica è quella argillosa, di origine marina e costituisce lo strato di base, particolarmente soggetto all’erosione. Gli strati superiori sono invece formati da materiale tufaceo e lavico. La veloce erosione è dovuta all’opera dei torrenti, agli agenti atmosferici, ma anche al disboscamento.
La superficie del territorio di Civita di Bagnoregio non è molto estesa, ma abbastanza eterogenea. La vegetazione dei calanchi, a causa della loro natura argillosa, è limitata a poche specie, disposte in piccoli e radi gruppi. Anche in primavera, quando la flora è al massimo rigoglio, il terreno rimane per buona parte scoperto. Nella fascia più bassa dei calanchi si trova una zona cespugliosa, costituita da rovi, canne, ginestre, qualche arbusto di olmo e, talvolta, rosa canina. All’interno della valle la vegetazione è costituita da piante arboree, da arbusti e da erbe palustri. La vegetazione delle rupi tufacee dello sperone roccioso sul quale si erge Civita, risulta limitata a poche specie con copertura esigua.
La fauna di questa zona è quella tipica delle aree collinari dell’Alto Lazio. Negli ambienti boschivi, costituiti soprattutto da macchie di bosco ceduo, tra le principali specie di mammiferi risultano il riccio tra gli insettivori, l’istrice tra i roditori, la volpe, la donnola, il tasso, la faina e il cinghiale tra i carnivori. Inoltre presenti la tortora e l’upupa, entrambi estivi. Da segnalare la gremita comunità felina che vive all’interno delle mura della città. Non si tratta di gatti selvatici, ma di gatti domestici randagi, la cui presenza va certamente collegata all’ambiente antropico abbandonato.
Civita venne fondata 2500 anni fa dagli Etruschi. Sorge su una delle più antiche vie d’Italia, congiungente il Tevere (allora grande via di navigazione dell’Italia Centrale) e il lago di Bolsena.
All’antico abitato di Civita si accedeva mediante cinque porte, mentre oggi la porta detta di Santa Maria o della Cava, costituisce l’unico accesso al paese Ted Baker Ireland. La struttura urbanistica dell’intero abitato è di origine etrusca, costituita da cardi e decumani secondo l’uso etrusco e poi romano, mentre l’intero rivestimento architettonico risulta medioevale e rinascimentale. Numerose sono le testimonianze della fase etrusca di Civita, specialmente nella zona detta di San Francesco vecchio; infatti nella rupe sottostante il belvedere di San Francesco vecchio è stata ritrovata una piccola necropoli etrusca. Anche la grotta di San Bonaventura, nella quale si dice che San Francesco risanò il piccolo Giovanni Fidanza, che divenne poi San Bonaventura, è in realtà una tomba a camera etrusca. Gli etruschi fecero di Civita (di cui non conosciamo l’antico nome) una fiorente città, favorita dalla posizione strategica per il commercio, grazie alla vicinanza con le più importanti vie di comunicazione del tempo.
Del periodo etrusco rimangono molte testimonianze: di particolare suggestione è il cosiddetto “Bucaione”, un profondo tunnel che incide la parte più bassa dell’abitato, e che permette l’accesso, direttamente dal paese, alla Valle dei Calanchi. In passato erano inoltre visibili molte tombe a camera, scavate alla base della rupe di Civita e delle altre pareti di tufo limitrofe che purtroppo furono in gran parte fagocitate, nei secoli, dalle innumerevoli frane. Del resto, già gli stessi Etruschi dovettero far fronte ai problemi di sismicità e di instabilità dell’area, che nel 280 a.C. si concretarono in scosse telluriche e smottamenti. All’arrivo dei romani, nel 265 a.C., furono riprese le imponenti opere di canalizzazione delle acque piovane e di contenimento dei torrenti avviate dagli etruschi.
Come detto sopra, il problema dell’erosione era già all’epoca degli Etruschi molto importante. Quindi misero in atto alcune opere che avevano il preciso scopo di proteggere Civita dai terremoti e dagli smottamenti, arginando fiumi e costruendo canali di scolo per il corretto deflusso delle acque piovane. I romani ripresero le opere dei loro predecessori, ma dopo di loro queste furono trascurate ed il territorio ebbe un rapido degrado che portò, infine, all’abbandono della Civita.
All’interno del borgo rimangono varie case medievali, la chiesa di San Donato, che si affaccia sulla piazza principale e dove al suo interno è custodito il S.S. Crocefisso ligneo, il Palazzo Vescovile, un mulino del XVI secolo, la casa natale di San Bonaventura e la porta di Santa Maria, con due leoni che tengono tra le zampe una testa umana, a ricordo di una rivolta popolare degli abitanti di Civita contro la famiglia orvietana dei Monaldeschi.
Nel 2005 i calanchi di Civita di Bagnoregio sono stati proposti come sito di interesse comunitario.
Il giorno del venerdì santo avviene il più sentito appuntamento della cittadina di Civita, quando all’interno della Chiesa di San Donato, durante una commovente cerimonia, viene deposto il S.S. Crocifisso il quale viene adagiato su una bara per trasportarlo all’interno della secolare Processione del Venerdì Santo di Bagnoregio. La leggenda vuole che durante un’epidemia di peste che nel 1499 riguardò tutto il territorio intorno a Bagnoregio, il Crocifisso abbia parlato ad una Pia donna, la quale si recava ogni giorno al cospetto della venerata Immagine chiedendo con le sue preghiere che avesse fine lo strazio. Un giorno, mentre la donna pregava “il Cristo”, udì una voce, che la rassicurava e la avvertiva che il Signore aveva esaudito le sue preghiere e che la pestilenza avrebbe a breve avuto fine, come puntualmente avvenne dopo qualche giorno contemporaneamente alla morte della Pia donna.
Il vecchio paese è iscritto all’associazione de I borghi più belli d’Italia. Per la sua posizione geografica suggestiva e il suo impianto medievale è ogni anno meta di numerosi turisti ed è stata diverse volte utilizzata come set cinematografico.
Da giugno 2013 l’accesso al Borgo di Civita di Bagnoregio costa €1,50.

Neptune Islands Conservation Park

Neptune Islands Conservation Park is a protected area occupying most of the Neptune Islands in South Australia about 55 km (34 mi) south-south east of Port Lincoln. It was established in 1967 principally to protect a New Zealand fur seal breeding colony. The conservation park was subsequently expanded to include the adjoining waters in order to control and manage berleying activities used to attract great white sharks. As of 2002, the conservation park is the only place in Australia where shark cage diving to view great white sharks is legally permitted.

The conservation park includes all the islands within the group with the exception of all or part of the southernmost island (known as Lighthouse Island) in the South Neptune Islands where land has been reserved for ongoing use by a lighthouse and the waters within 2 nautical miles (4 km) of the mean low water mark of both groups of islands. The conservation park is classified as an IUCN Category Ia protected area.
The conservation park was proclaimed on 16 March 1967 mainly to conserve the New Zealand fur seal breeding colony on the southern island of the North Neptune Islands which is reported as being one of the largest in Australia. Other features that contributed to the declaration include the small breeding population of Australian sea lions on the North Neptune Islands, Australian sea lion haul out areas on the South Neptune Islands and the breeding/nesting populations of Cape Barren goose, white-bellied sea eagle, osprey and peregrine falcon.
The conservation park was subsequently extended to include the waters within 2 nautical miles (4 km) of the shoreline of both the North and South Neptune Islands via a declaration under the National Parks and Wildlife Act 1972 (SA), to regulate and manage great white shark berleying activities around both groups of islands.
1n 1990, most of Lighthouse Island was reportedly added to the conservation park after the conversion of the lighthouse to automatic operation with the exception of some land around the lighthouse and an associated helicopter landing site.
On 29 November 2012, the waters within 2 nautical miles (4 km) of the coastline of both the North and South Neptune Islands at median high water also became part of a protected area known as the Neptune Islands Group (Ron and Valerie Taylor) Marine Park. The marine park entity provides a level of regulation additional to that of the conservation park in respect to the use of the waters adjoining both groups of islands.
