Auto Mechanics Hilariously Recreate Renaissance Paintings US-based photographer Freddy Fabris had always wanted to pay homage to the Renaissance masters with his photos in some way, but he wasn’t sure how until he stumbled upon an auto-mechanic shop in the Midwest. This led to a brilliant series of portraits with auto mechanics reenacting famous Renaissance paintings.

Encyclopedia of Mathematics snapshots Visual Arts Encyclopedia Marci menni Barcelona Hála szuper indiai programszervezőnknek, Shaznak, aki főállásban szervezi halomra az erasmus-programokat itt Barcelonában, a múlt pénteken lehetőség volt pofátlanul olcsó áron átruccanni Valenciába egy egyéjszakás kalandra, ugyanis odaát pont most zajlott a közmegítélés szerint és szerintem is egyaránt kihagyhatatlan Las fallas. Ez a József-napi buli elég egyedi módon hozza meg a meleget, az elhivatott tűzoltók és megélhetési piromániások nagy örömére. A várost ilyenkor cirka egy hétre teletömik faalapra ácsolt, hatalmas, kartonból gyártott groteszk, szarkasztik-szürreál stílusban készült bábukkal, amik a lehető legkülönfélébb módon gúnyolják ki a társadalmat, a közszereplőket vagy a globalizációt. A skála elég széles: Chaplintől a terhes Hófehérkén át megjelenik Sárközy, a Supermannek öltöztetett Obama, Cristiano Ronaldo és Zapatero is (nyilván én pont nem a legérdekesebbeket találtam meg, de nézzétek el, a rendelkezésre álló órák kevesen voltak, a bábuk meg 700-nál is többen).

Concise Encyclopedia of Economics| Library of Economics and Liberty Harry Johnson, a Canadian, was one of the most active and prolific economists of all time. His main research was in the area of international trade, international finance, and monetary policy. One of Johnson's early articles on international trade showed that a country with monopoly power in some good could impose a tariff and be better off, even if other countries retaliated against the tariff. His proof was what is sometimes called a "possibility theorem"; it showed that such a tariff could improve the country's well-being, not that it was likely to. Johnson, realizing the difference between what could be and what is likely to be, was a strong believer in free trade. Indeed, he often gave lectures in his native Canada excoriating the Canadian government for its protectionist policies and arguing that Canada could eliminate some of the gap between Canadian and U.S. standards of living by implementing free trade....

Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy Classics - Because what you read matters. October 3, 10:30am and October 5, 6:00pm — New York Public Library for the Performing Arts @ 40 Lincoln Center Plaza This October you'll have two opportunities to show your love for Alice's Adventures in Wonderland if you're already an aficionado, or want to learn what all the fuss is about if you're not.
