View: 6733New Orleans, 2007. There is another layer beneath the society we see and understand. Vampires and shapeshifters are real and malakh are the offspring of angels who descended to earth over 10,000 years ago. To exist, they've adapted so well that the unknowing human doesn't recognize a malakh. 8,000 years ago, a unique destiny was forged by the Midael angel Israfil Arakelba. He defended humanity and accepted imprisonment as a way to protect mortals. He has lived many lives from behind the walls of the citadel created to keep him asleep. Now, 8,000 years later, his imprisonment is about to end. A familiar evil has set its foot on the world and only one malakh possesses the power with which to beat back the rising tide of darkness. But, how much does this potential anti-hero remember of his real nature? This is a proem: six individuals and the journey they are going to make, remembering the past and preparing to battle the future. Contains homosexual tones and potentially offensive language.

A Sociological Analysis of Scientists' Discourse
Author: G. Nigel Gilbert,Michael Mulkay
Publisher: CUP Archive
Category: Social Science
View: 7678This book proposes a fresh approach to sociological analysis and, in particular, to the analysis of scientific culture. It moves away from previous studies, which have tended to focus on scientists' actions and beliefs to show that analysis of scientific discourse can be productive and revealing. The book demonstrates that scientists produce varying accounts of their actions and beliefs in different social situations. Rather than attempting to extract one coherent interpretation from these diverse accounts, the study identifies two basic scientific repertoires and shows how scientists use them to create their discourse. This provides a point of departure for more complex analytical topics. Discourse analysis is applied to show how different degrees of 'consensus' can be ascribed to the same group of scientists at a given moment in time through the application of standard interpretive techniques. Finally, discourse analysis is used to explore scientists' humour, a neglected topic that is shown to provide important insights into the normally hidden interpretive regularities which underlie the cultural diversity of science.
Feminism, Film Theory, Psychoanalysis
Author: Mary Ann Doane
Publisher: Psychology Press
Category: Literary Criticism
View: 8802In this work of feminist film criticism, Mary Ann Doane examines questions of sexual difference and knowledge in cinematic, theoretical, and psychoanalytic discourses. Femmes Fatales examines Freud, the female spectator, the meaning of the close-up, and the nature of stardom. Doane's analyses of such figures as Pabst's Lulu and Rita Hayworth's Gilda trace the thematics and mechanics of maskes, masquerade, and veiling, with specific attention to the form and technology of the cinema. Working through and against the intellectual frameworks of post-structuralist and psychoanalytic theory, Doane interrogates cinematic and theoretical claims to truth about women which rely on judgements about vision and its stability or instability. Reflecting the shift in conceptual priorities within feminist film theory over the last decade,

Her name was Pandora. The first thing that Pandora saw when she entered the cottage where Epimetheus lived was a great box. And almost the first question that she put to him was this, "Epimetheus, what have you in that box?" "My dear little Pandora," answered Epimetheus, "that is a secret, and you must be kind enough not to ask any questions about it. The box was left here to be kept safely, and I do not myself know what it contains" – and here begins our story…… Download and read the story of Pandora’s Box to your children warning them of the dangers of always giving in to temptation and how important it is to learn to overcome it.

He appreciated that whilst technology may change, Man's nature remains the same and Pandora's Box spins a fascinating tale based on that most basic human emotion - greed!
Phrases We Borrowed From the Classics and the Stories Behind Them

View: 1765It has been one of those days. You've worked like a Trojan, displaying titanic strength and stoic endurance to overcome the Herculean labours that have faced you in order to meet that deadline. We regularly employ classically-derived expressions in our everyday language, yet many of us have little understanding of the origin of these common phrases. But an incomplete classical education need no longer be your Achilles heel. Opening Pandora's Box offers a light-hearted yet fascinating look at the stories behind the expressions. For example, did you know that the phrase 'the face that launched a thousand ships' originates from the story of the kidnapping of Helen of Troy, but the actual line comes from a poem by Christopher Marlowe? Opening Pandora's Box provides a useful introduction to classical mythology as well as giving an insight into our language.
