Asperger syndrome Asperger syndrome (AS), also known as Asperger disorder (AD) or simply Asperger's, is an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) that is characterized by significant difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication, alongside restricted and repetitive patterns of behavior and interests. It differs from other autism spectrum disorders by its relative preservation of linguistic and cognitive development. Although not required for diagnosis, physical clumsiness and atypical (peculiar, odd) use of language are frequently reported. The syndrome is named after the Austrian pediatrician Hans Asperger who, in 1944, studied and described children in his practice who lacked nonverbal communication skills, demonstrated limited empathy with their peers, and were physically clumsy. The modern conception of Asperger syndrome came into existence in 1981 and went through a period of popularization, becoming standardized as a diagnosis in the early 1990s.
TWIXT Trailer We’ve raved about the Twixt presentation we saw at Comic-Con and a similar version of the promo trailer we saw has gone online. During the presentation, the promo trailer was reedited multiple times with different music, and this is yet a new cut, but it still conveys the gist of what we saw. You can see that the movie looks all over the place but all those places look interesting and it’s one of the many reasons why Twixt has me intrigued. Hit the jump to check out the trailer. The film stars Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern, Elle Fanning, and Ben Chaplin. Twixt will play at this year’s Toronto International Film Festival.
Oasis (band) Following the recording of the band's seventh album Dig Out Your Soul (2008), Starkey left and was replaced by Chris Sharrock on Oasis' last tour as a collective band. During the tour the brothers' increasingly deteriorating relationship ultimately led to Noel Gallagher announcing in August 2009 that he would be leaving the band after a backstage altercation with Liam before a festival appearance. The band, comprising the remaining members of Oasis and led by Liam Gallagher, decided to continue working together under the name Beady Eye, while Noel went on to form his solo project Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. Oasis have had eight UK number-one singles and eight UK number-one albums, and won fifteen NME Awards, nine Q Awards, four MTV Europe Music Awards and six Brit Awards, including one in 2007 for Outstanding Contribution to Music and one for the Best Album of the Last 30 Years as voted by BBC Radio 2 listeners; they have been nominated for three Grammy Awards.

Gaius Marcius Coriolanus Veturia at the Feet of Coriolanus by Gaspare Landi (Photo courtesy The VRoma Project) Gaius Marcius (Caius Martius) Coriolanus (/ˌkɔriəˈleɪnəs, ˌkɒr-/) was a Roman general who is said to have lived in the 5th century BC. He received his toponymic cognomen "Coriolanus" because of his exceptional valor in a Roman siege of the Volscian city of Corioli. He was subsequently exiled from Rome, and led troops of Rome's enemy the Volsci to besiege Rome. In later ancient times, it was generally accepted by historians that Coriolanus was a real historical individual, and a consensus narrative story of his life appeared, retold by leading historians such as Livy, Plutarch, and Dionysius of Halicarnassus. More recent scholarship has cast doubt on the historicity of Coriolanus, portraying him as either a wholly legendary figure or at least disputing the accuracy of the conventional story of his life or the timing of the events.

Chess Tactics Diogenes of Sinope Diogenes of Sinope was a controversial figure. His father minted coins for a living, and when Diogenes took to debasement of currency, he was banished from Sinope. After being exiled, he moved to Athens to debunk cultural conventions. Diogenes modelled himself on the example of Hercules. He believed that virtue was better revealed in action than in theory. He used his simple lifestyle and behaviour to criticise the social values and institutions of what he saw as a corrupt society. He declared himself a cosmopolitan.

¿De qué sirve ser el país con más libre comercio del mundo? BBC Mundo . México es el país con más tratados de libre comercio en el mundo, pero muchos mexicanos se preguntan para qué han servido tantos acuerdos económicos, especialmente con naciones con las que el intercambio económico es mínimo. De acuerdo con la Secretaría de Economía,* México tiene 12 tratados de libre comercio, 28 acuerdos para la promoción recíproca de inversiones y nueve acuerdos de complementación económica*. En total son 49 acuerdos diversos que se han firmado con 44 países distintos. Algunos especialistas sostienen que esta apertura económica, que inició en 1986, ha sido fundamental para superar las distintas crisis financieras. Pero los críticos de los acuerdos afirman que muchos beneficios anunciados con esos tratados no existen, e incluso aumentó la dependencia de la economía mexicana a la estadounidense, lo que se pretendía evitar con la diversificación de relaciones comerciales.

Pentimento The Arnolfini Portrait by Jan van Eyck, National Gallery, London 1434. Among other changes, his face was higher by about the height of his eye, hers was higher, and her eyes looked more to the front. Each of his feet was underdrawn in one position, painted in another, and then overpainted in a third. These alterations are seen in infra-red reflectograms. A pentimento (plural pentimenti) is an alteration in a painting, evidenced by traces of previous work, showing that the artist has changed his or her mind as to the composition during the process of painting. The word is Italian for repentance, from the verb pentirsi, meaning to repent.
