Ailbhe Ni Bhriain - Le Livre d'Artiste: Louis Brocquy and The Tain (1969) - New Hibernia Review 5:1 [Access article in PDF] Le Livre d'Artiste: Louis le Brocquy and The Tain (1969) Ailbhe Ní Bhriain [Figures] In September, 1969, Liam Miller published The Tain, a translation of the Táin Bó Cuailnge by Thomas Kinsella, with ink brush drawings by the Irish painter Louis le Brocquy. Although le Brocquy has thus far illustrated ten books, his experience in graphics is seldom referred to in critical studies of his work. The livre d'artiste, an almost exclusively French art form, was conceived by the art dealer Ambroise Vollard in 1900. The Irish poet Thomas Kinsella was involved with the Dolmen Press from the start, and his translation of the Táin Bó Cuailnge, which had been commissioned by Liam Miller in 1954, was one of the press's principal projects. The Táin Bó Cuailnge--táin, meaning the gathering of people for a cattle raid--is a prose epic with verse passages and forms the centerpiece of the cycle of Ulster heroic stories.

Making Cordage By Hand Cordage (rope and string) can be made from many different fibers including (Bast) Dogbane, Milkweed, Nettles, Hemp, Flax; (Leaves) Cattail, Yucca, Agave, Douglas Iris; (Bark) Willow, Maple, Basswood, Cedar; (Root) Leather Root, Beach Lupine; (Whole stem) Tule, straw, Juncus. Each material has specific requirements for extracting and preparing the fibers, but there are only two basic ways for using the fibers to make a cord: braiding (or plaiting) and twining. Braiding was usually done with flat, split materials such as cattail or flattened straw. The instructions in this article will deal only with twining, specifically with two ply (S-twist, Z ply, also called right handed) cordage. After preparing a bundle of fiber half the thickness of the finished cord, place your hands six to twelve inches apart and about one third of the way from one end. Bring your hands closer together and keep twisting. If you began your cord off-center, then one side will run out of fiber first.

Woodworking Power Tools from Dalyan Guide,Travel guide to Dalyan on the internet Dalyan honored with best open spaces in europe 2008 awards by The Times Travel Green Spaces Award. A small village in an area of outstanding natural beauty, Dalyan is historic, unhurried and very hard to leave. Set on the south west corner of Turkey's Mediterranean coast, Dalyan is an unspoilt village surrounded by pine-clad hills, cotton fields and miles of untouched coastline. Set inland on the banks of the Dalyan River, the village of Dalyan is a peaceful holiday backwater unspoilt by mass tourism. A popular activity among tourists visiting Dalyan is to take a mud bath on the bank of the river. Dalyan itself lies inland, but there is a magnificent four kilometre long, white sand beach just around the corner from Dalyan harbour - take boat trips from here to get a great look at the picturesque coast. The ancient rock tombs of the Kings have become another symbol of Dalyan after the famous Sea Turtles, Caretta Carettas.

Welcome to ARKive - Images of life on Earth Wildscreen's Arkive project was launched in 2003 and grew to become the world's biggest encyclopaedia of life on Earth. With the help of over 7,000 of the world’s best wildlife filmmakers and photographers, conservationists and scientists, featured multi-media fact-files for more than 16,000 endangered species. Freely accessible to everyone, over half a million people every month, from over 200 countries, used Arkive to learn and discover the wonders of the natural world. Since 2013 Wildscreen was unable to raise sufficient funds from trusts, foundations, corporates and individual donors to support the year-round costs of keeping Arkive online. Therefore, the charity had been using its reserves to keep the project online and was unable to fund any dedicated staff to maintain Arkive, let alone future-proof it, for over half a decade. Despite appeals for support, just 85 of our 5.6 million users in 2018 made a donation.

The icon means there is an interactive calculator in this section. 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987 ..More.. Binet's Formula for the nth Fibonacci number We have only defined the nth Fibonacci number in terms of the two before it: the n-th Fibonacci number is the sum of the (n-1)th and the (n-2)th. So to calculate the 100th Fibonacci number, for instance, we need to compute all the 99 values before it first - quite a task, even with a calculator! Can we find a formula for F(n) which involves only n and does not need any other (earlier) Fibonacci values? Yes! Since phi is the name we use for 1/Phi on these pages, then we can remove the fraction in the numerator here and make it simpler, giving the second form of the formula at the start of this section. If you prefer values in your formulae, then here is another form:- An approximation is good enough Things to do
