Portraits of 4 sisters every year for 36 years, 1975 – 2010 [36 pictures] In 1975, photographer Nicholas Nixon took a picture of his wife and her 3 sisters, who at the time ranged in age from 15 to 25. Then he did it again the next year and suggested that they make it an annual tradition. The women agreed and they have all consistently been a part of the remarkable project now for going on 40 years. In each photo, the Brown Sisters pose in the same order — Heather, Mimi, Bebe, and Laurie… Update… These photos have been removed by request of the photographer’s representative. You can learn more about Nicholas Nixon’s series at the Fraenkel Gallery.

The delicate relationship I have with my keyboard The final panel to this comic has been removed, and so was my "defense" of it. Neither one was particularly clever. I make comics to make people laugh, not to upset them. To anyone who was upset by it: I'm sorry. Revolution 1848 - Tafelbild Das Tafelbild behandelt die sozialen und politischen Bedingungen der Revolution und die Entwicklungen, die zur Revolution 1848 führten; außerdem die Spaltung des Vorparlaments. Auf dem Tafelbild sind vier relevante Phasen der beginnenden Märzrevolution 1848 aufgezeigt: In der Gesellschaft des Vormärz existieren Spannungen politischer und sozialer Natur, die durch ökonomische Krisen verstärkt werden. Unter dem Eindruck der Februarrevolution in Frankreich kommt es zur Formulierung von Märzforderungen und zur Bildung der Märzministerien. Revolutionäre Aktionen in Wien und Berlin führen zur Bildung des Vorparlaments, in dem Radikale und Gemäßigte keinen Konsens finden. Laden Sie das Tafelbild hier als Bilddatei (png) oder als PDF-Dokument (bessere Auflösung) herunter. Das Tafelbild “Märzrevolution 1848” ist fast etwas zu umfangreich, um es in einer Unterrichtsphase im Unterrichtsgespräch zu entwickeln.

The Lion King (1994) - Memorable quotes Can hot water freeze faster than cold water? [Physics FAQ] - [Copyright] Written Nov, 1998 by Monwhea Jeng (Momo), Department of Physics, University of California Yes — a general explanation History of the Mpemba Effect More-detailed explanations References Yes — a general explanation Hot water can in fact freeze faster than cold water for a wide range of experimental conditions. The phenomenon that hot water may freeze faster than cold is often called the Mpemba effect. This seems impossible, right? What's wrong with this proof is that it implicitly assumes that the water is characterized solely by a single number — its average temperature. It is still not known exactly why this happens. Why hasn't modern science answered this seemingly simple question about cooling water? So with the limited number of experiments done, often under very different conditions, none of the proposed mechanisms can be confidently proclaimed as "the" mechanism. Finally, supercooling may be important to the effect. History of the Mpemba Effect Evaporation
