Legislation and crime Literature The Harry Potter books, though they have broken children's book publishing records, have not led to an increase in reading among children or adults, nor slowed the ongoing overall decline in book purchases by Americans, and children who did read the Harry Potter books were not more likely to go on to read more outside of the fantasy and mystery genres.[21][22][23][24] Music Religion Hebrew Bible The forbidden fruit mentioned in the Book of Genesis is commonly assumed to be an apple,[27] and is widely depicted as such in Western art.

Online Job Interview Training by BIG INTERVIEW TheQuizCenter - Cool Quiz Games - Free Online Quizzes and Trivia Questions ¿Cuál es la mejor novela de todos los tiempos? ¿16 opciones son suficientes? Para algunos, las competencias en materia de arte son ociosas y quizá hasta inútiles, sobre todo porque, tratándose de cuestiones subjetivas, es más o menos imposible llegar a un acuerdo, al menos en lo que se refiere a conclusiones positivas (en negativas quizá sea más fácil convenir en qué es lo detestable y lo francamente malo, aunque incluso esto tendrá sus defensores). Con todo, la oportunidad puede aprovecharse para exponer y argumentar, para discutir los parámetros siempre cambiantes con que juzgamos la calidad de una obra artística. Por estos días, el sitio The Huffington Post ha lanzado a sus lectores una pregunta sencilla pero no inocente: ¿cuál es la mejor novela de todos los tiempos? Así, los libros elegidos fueron los siguientes, organizados en parejas de contrincantes para efectos de la votación: The Great Gatsby (F. Cien años de soledad (García Márquez) / Emma (Jane Austen) To The Lighthouse (Virginia Woolf) / Crimen y castigo (Dostoievski)

Japanese Folktales selected and edited by D. L. Ashliman © 1998-2008 Contents Return to D. The Two Frogs Once upon a time in the country of Japan there lived two frogs, one of whom made his home in a ditch near the town of Osaka, on the sea coast, while the other dwelt in a clear little stream which ran through the city of Kyoto. So one fine morning in the spring they both set out along the road that led from Kyoto to Osaka, one from one end and the other from the other. They looked at each other for a moment without speaking, and then fell into conversation, explaining the cause of their meeting so far from their homes. "What a pity we are not bigger," said the Osaka frog; "for then we could see both towns from here, and tell if it is worth our while going on." "Oh, that is easily managed," returned the Kyoto frog. This idea pleased the Osaka frog so much that he at once jumped up and put his front paws on the shoulder of his friend, who had risen also. "Dear me!" The Mirror of Matsuyama Source: F. "Buried!"

The VICE Guide to Karachi | The VICE Guide to Travel One of Pakistan’s famous decorative buses gets hit by one of Karachi’s infamous outbursts of violence. Photo by Zia Mazhar/Associated Press. Interviewing a “target killer” in Karachi was probably the scariest thing I’ve done in my 17 years at VICE. His gun sat between my feet in the backseat of our car as we drove in circles around his neighborhood. After our chat about killing people for a living, I felt like vomiting for three hours. So who hires these people? On the outskirts of Karachi, children search for scraps in one of the largest garbage dumps in the world, which is next door to what is rumored to be one of the mafia’s favorite hiding spots for its kidnap victims, Surjani Town. I have visited Pakistan many times and know my way around the rest of the country, but this was my first time working in Karachi. Karachi has a rich history of violence, dating back to 1947, when Pakistan rose from the ashes of the British Empire. We said yes. HEADBANGING IS NOT A CRIME By Babar N.

Normal Mapping with Javascript and Canvas — Jonas Wagner's Blog I made a little experiment with normal mapping and phong shading in javascript which turned out to work quite well. I think with a little bit of tweaking it could be used in a real time game. Just move your mouse over the images bellow to see it in action. You'll need a modern browser supporting the canvas tag for this to work. Google Chrome seems to be the fastest. Demo Source You can view the source code here: light.js. How it works The 3D effect is basically created using 2 textures. Credits The dragon head used in this demo comes from planetpixelemporium.com. Photography Tutorials The challenge of using a cheap camera can keep a photographer sharp by forcing him or her to think things out more thoroughly in order to get a good shot. As Kai mentions in the video, things often go wrong during photo shoots, and it’s up to the photographer to deal with the blows as they come and figure out how to work around them. Infrared photography is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful areas of photographic art, and there are many ways in which you can shoot IR frames. However, if you have a DSLR camera and you are not willing to invest in state of the art equipment designed especially for infrared photography, then you should know that you can easily convert your camera. In December 2007, TIME Magazine named Russian president Vladimir Putin as Person of the Year. Photographer Platon was flown to Moscow for the shoot. March 20 was the spring equinox, the first official day of spring in 2014. « Previous123456789…331332Next » Help us out!

CONCEPTOS BÁSICOS PARA EL ANÁLISIS LITERARIO DEL CUENTO I. Convenciones en la lectura de textos literarios. Definición de términos literarios básicos Autor Narrador Punto(s) de vista del/los narrador(es) narrador en primera persona narrador en segunda persona narrador omnisciente (tercera persona) Estilos directo (habla el/los personaje(s) indirecto (habla el/los narrador(es) Lo primero que hay que enfatizar es la diferencia básica que existe entre los conceptos de “autor” y “narrador”. El autor es la persona real e histórica que vive o vivió en una época y en un país determinado y que escribe o que escribió obras de ficción, por ejemplo, los autores de nuestro curso. El narrador o narradores tienen uno o varios “puntos de vista”. Las narraciones contadas desde el “punto de vista” en “primera persona” son más limitadas e íntimas dado que el lector sólo se entera de lo que el narrador le dice desde su punto de vista personal. Lees ese anuncio: una oferta de esa naturaleza no se hace todos los días. Otros conceptos básicos: · Trama · Argumento
