Описание: There are creative writers and thinkers who are the origin of words and expressions that have a long life in history. One of them is Nikolai Frederik Severin Grundtvig (1783-1872). He is perhaps best known internationally for his modern ideas about lifelong learning and a completely new type of school -- the folk high school for young people as well as adults -- that was to give people the possibility of developing freely and using their abilities for the benefit of their national community. In this book we feature a selection of his well-known hymns and songs. They are among the most powerful of his entire work marked by an artistic breadth that is immediately sensed. The present English translations -- the work of the poet and translator John Irons, in collaboration with the poet Klaus Hoeck -- can and should be sung at everyday gatherings of people wishing to express themselves about what is most important in human existence: faith, hope and love.

The undisputed virtuosity of William Shakespeare's theatrical works--and their perennial relationship to the experience of being human--assures their continued importance in the cultural life of the twenty-first century. However, Shakespeare is a subject of interest beyond the theater; his life and work remain among the foremost themes of literary and historical scholarship. Nonetheless, virtually every scholarly commentary on Shakespeare's dramas remains unsatisfying on a deeper level. This is because the profound depths of these plays are not, in fact, accessible to a strictly intellectual approach. Shakespeare's "realism" relates just as much to the world we inhabit in our dreams as it does to our everyday consciousness. Taken as a whole, Shakespeare's dramas are characterized by the interplay of a brightly colored, dynamic "dream" world and a "real" world of authentic, even archetypal, psychological insight. This dual-nature of Shakespeare's plays serves as the author's point of departure in this book.
Using seven of his most loved and performed plays as examples, Willem Frederik Veltman uncovers the spiritual reality that hides--in full view, as an open secret--in Shakespeare's world of images. This exciting study looks at The Merchant of Venice; A Midsummer Night's Dream; Macbeth; Hamlet; As You Like It; The Winter's Tale; and The Tempest.
The book provides the background on simulating copulas and multivariate distributions in general. It unifies the scattered literature on the simulation of various families of copulas (elliptical, Archimedean, Marshall-Olkin type, etc.) as well as on different construction principles (factor models, pair-copula construction, etc.). The book is self-contained and unified in presentation and can be used as a textbook for graduate and advanced undergraduate students with a firm background in stochastics. Besides the theoretical foundation, ready-to-implement algorithms and many examples make the book a valuable tool for anyone who is applying the methodology.

The Nebula Award winning masterwork by the author of "Gateway" "" ""In the not-too-distant future, a desperate war for natural resources threatens to bring civilization to a crashing halt. Nuclear warships from around the globe begin positioning themselves as the American government works feverishly to complete a massive project to colonize Mars. Former astronaut Roger Torraway has agreed to be transformed by the latest advances in biological and cybernetic science into something new, a being that can survive the rigors of Mars before it is terraformed. Becoming Man Plus will allow him to be the linchpin in opening the new Martian frontier but not without challenging his humanity as no man has ever been challenged before.
A bestselling, Nebula Award winning novel when first published more than thirty years ago, this book is now more relevant than ever, as the battle between corporate interests and those who seek to save Earth's natural resources steadily escalates. The question of where man will go once the world's food, water, and oil have run out has yet to be answered. "Man Plus "by Frederick Pohl is a brilliantly imagined, compelling possible scenario that has enthralled countless readers."

Every word has a literal translation, and every sentence has a natural translation, showing you what each word means and how the sentence fits together. This will greatly help you understand how Tagalog works. It will also save you a lot of time, because you don't need to look up words.
All Tagalog words and sentences in the learning materials have translations and pronunciation marks, so you'll know what every word means and how to pronounce it.

The dialogues are also an ideal way to learn the "whole" language intuitively, with all its nuances, emotions, typical expressions and choice of words. By learning vocabulary and expressions in a meaningful context, you'll remember them more easily and you'll be able to use them in the right situations.
The cultural and grammatical notes in the lessons, paired with the comprehensive grammar reference, will give you an in-depth understanding of the language, using short, simple explanations and plenty of practical examples.

In a vastly overpopulated near-future world, businesses have taken the place of governments and now hold all political power. States exist merely to ensure the survival of huge transnational corporations. Advertising has become hugely aggressive and boasts some of the world's most powerful executives.
Through advertising, the public is constantly deluded into thinking that all the products on the market improve the quality of life. However, the most basic elements are incredibly scarce, including water and fuel. The planet Venus has just been visited and judged fit for human settlement, despite its inhospitable surface and climate; colonists would have to endure a harsh climate for many generations until the planet could be terraformed. Mitch Courtenay is a star-class copywriter in the Fowler Schocken advertising agency and has been assigned the ad campaign that would attract colonists to Venus, but a lot more is happening than he knows about. Mitch is soon thrown into a world of danger, mystery, and intrigue, where the people in his life are never quite what they seem, and his loyalties and core beliefs will be put to the test.
