Science History of the Universe

By: Francis Rolt Wheeler

In the present volume there have been covered in a comprehensive and popular manner the various departments of Astronomy. Owing to its treatment in a definitely historical and descriptive manner, however, it may be possible to supplement the general review by a few brief statements of some of the results and problems that confront us in the actual work of the observational astronomy of to-day.

The astronomical beliefs of prehistoric man were doubt similar to those entertained by the Eskimo of the Arctic regions and the untutored tribes of Argentine' Republic, South Africa and Australia, tribes who, living only for the day, concern themselves but little with to- morrow and yesterday and care nothing about the universe...

Guide to Newspapers of Hawaii, 1834-2000

By: Helen G. Chapin

The newspapers of Hawaii form a unique role in the history of Hawaii and of American journalism. In a period of 165 years, from 1834, when American Protestant missionaries introduced the Hawaiian language Lama Hawaii (Hawaiian Luminary), to the present, newspapers have spanned the history of Hawaii from its status as an independent nation, a republic, and a U. S. territory, to its position as a state. By newspapers, I mean publications that have titles and mastheads,...

There are several ways to classify newspapers. In Shaping History: The Role of Newspapers in Hawaii (University of Hawaii Press, 1996), I placed newspapers within four major categories: establishment, opposition (or alternative), official, and independent. Establishment papers represent the mainstream or dominant power. Alternative or opposition publications voice anti-establishment or countervailing views. Official papers, the third type, are sponsored by government...

Hawaii Place Names

By: Esther Mookini

In this latest book, John Clark, author of the highly regarded "Beaches of Hawaii" series, gives us the many captivating stories behind the hundreds of Hawaii place names associated with the ocean—the names of shores, beaches, and other sites where people fish, swim, dive, surf, and paddle. Significant features and landmarks on or near shores, such as fishponds, monuments, shrines, reefs, and small islands, are also included. The names of surfing sites are the most nu...

In 1966 the University of Hawaii Press published the first edition of Place Names of Hawaii. Written by Mary Kawena Pukui and Samuel H. Elbert, it contained 1,125 entries, all of which were place names in the Hawaiian language. In 1974 the press published the second edition by Pukui, Elbert, and Esther T. Mookini. It contained some four thousand entries, and this time it included place names in English and other languages. This edition, in the words of the authors, provi...

Les réalités de la réalité - quatrième partie : la réalité derrièr...

By: Fritz Dufour

Ce livre est organisé en sept chapitres. Le premier chapitre examine les origines et les causes de la guerre. Le chapitre soutient que la guerre est une conséquence de la façon dont nous, en tant qu'espèce, avons évolué. La guerre a des causes endogènes et exogènes. Alors que le premier dépend de notre biologie et de notre psychologie, le second concerne principalement les relations internationales. Le chapitre deux plaide en faveur de la nature paradoxale de la guerre. ...

La paix entre les nations est-elle une utopie? Certains diraient oui, d'autres diraient non. En fait, cela dépend de la façon dont on définit la paix. Est-ce l'absence de conflit international ou de guerre? Est-ce l'absence de violence ou la peur de la violence aux niveaux national et international? Mieux encore, la violence n'est-elle pas ancrée dans notre ADN, en tant qu'espèce? Ne sommes-nous pas voués à nous battre pour des ressources, à mettre constamment notre prop...

Despite the increased interest in and aware- ness of matter of mere whim, but are seriously considered ...

The Early Mapping of Hawai'I

By: Gary L. Fitzpatrick

The cartographic history of Hawaii began with the arrival of Captain James Cook, the famous explorer and chartmaker, in 1778. Between then and the mid-19th century, visitors to HawaiI produced a rich assortment of charts and maps depicting the shores, harbors, towns, and volcanoes of the various islands. This volume traces the story of the mapping of HawaiI during the pivotal years in which the indigenous society was radically transformed by the peoples and ideas imp...

The Early Mapping of Hawaii is an overview of the history of the mapping of Hawaii from the time of European discovery in 1778 through the mid-19th century. Mapmaking was not an art indigenous to Hawaii; foreigners were responsible for the introduction of mapmaking in the islands. For well over seventy years, mapping in Hawaii was largely carried out by Europeans or Americans, and the early maps of Hawaii were mostly made to serve the needs of those foreigners.

Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii

By: S. M. Kamakau

In 1961 the first edition of the English translation of Samuel Kamakau's Ruling Chiefs of Hawaii was published by Kamehameha Schools Press. Many contributed to make its publication possible. A group of Hawaiian scholars was first selected by the trustees of Bishop Museum to translate Kamakau's florid literary style into readable English. The group included Mary Kawena Pukui, Thomas G. Thrum, Lahilahi Webb, Emma Davidson Taylor, and John Wise. Mary Kawena Pukui then revie...

Many famous chiefs, mentioned in Hawaiian history, were descended from Hana-laa-nui. The ruling chiefs (noho alii) of Hawaii were of that particular lineage (mookuauhau), and with additions from those of the other islands, the genealogy of Hawaii's chiefs and their ancestors was made complete. Umi-a-Liloa [that is, Umi-son-of-Liloa] was a famous chief, and the reason for his fame was that it was he who united all of the districts of Hawaii through wars. The kingdom beca...

Leopardi and Schopenhauer : an English translation of "Leonardi e ...

By: Francesco De Sanctis; Thomas Haskell Simpson

possibly the first English translation of this interesting work by great literary critic Francesco De Sanctis, one of the fathers of the Italian national independence movement, later the young nation's Minister of Public Instruction, and author of a crucial history of Italian literature.

"...Hegel is the greatest sinner, because the public’s head can't make room for intellectual intuition. With his dialectical process, Hegel gave an appearance of harmony to this philosophical monstrosity. He was its designer and architect, making the original sin durable. So Schopenhauer tore him to pieces. Charlatan, insipid, stupid, nauseating, an ignoramus whose shamelessness was touted as wisdom by cowardly followers; the true author of our century’s intellectua...

Mortaumal

By: Rigby Taylor

One would expect a young man whose single mother skipped town a couple of hours after his birth, to have a few problems, but Mortaumal [Mort] doesn’t seem to, thanks to his grandfather. However, when that support is gone and foster parents fail, and there are nasty people demanding he do evil deeds...things begin to look pretty desperate. From the age of ten to eighteen Mort lives with and meets an extraordinary variety of people, gets himself into and out of very hot ...

1 Mortaumal According to his grandfather, Mortaumal was a smart kid. According to Mortaumal, Simon was a brainless bully. So why wasn’t it Simon lying on his belly, face pressed into the dust, scarcely able to breathe? Surely twice as big should be beaten by twice as clever? Obviously not, or Mortaumal wouldn’t have had his head flushed in a toilet bowl yesterday, and he wouldn’t have had to endure six months of increasingly unpleasant torment. On this relentless...

This book is an alternative representation of my thoughts, which have been more comprehensively presented in another of my books Writings @ Ankur Mutreja.

The book starts with the chapter entitled Satire, which, as the name suggests, comprises pointed attacks on the societal idiosyncrasies and hypocrisies,...

This is the First Superbook that has ever been written. My intention was to bring to life a superhero from the Superman Realm into our real life existence. I was able to do this through relating similarities between Superman's abilities and ours. In this book we compare superman up against the greatest legends of our world. We also compare superman with our best selves. You at your highest potential. This is Not a Book about Superman. This is a book about you. Superman i...

After painting the Sistine chapel, Michelangelo was asked what he was doing to be able to perform such incredible art. He replied, “I am still learning”. Improvement is synonymous with learning. We see that the greatest people are always training. The greater we learn the more legendary we become. We could never stop because it keeps our mind young and also makes us happy. When we learn something, the mind expands, and we have more space to fit in the information. L...
