Why Bali is the best place in Asia for the creative entrepreneur Over the years, I’ve come to love Bali. The island has given me creative sanctuary when I’ve needed inspiration to complete my writing projects, or generously granted me asylum from stress while I put myself back together. It’s a place to work, and heal. During these recent summers in Bali, I rekindled my passion for handmade jewellery, a hobby I adored as a teenager and considered much too seldom in my adolescence and young adulthood. I started dabbling in producing small batch artisan silver and semi precious stone gem jewellery, handmade by Balinese silversmiths in Celuk.

(A) Futuristic, (B) Retro, (C) Organic or (D) Architecture Bart Prince is a very hard architect to pin down – and he prefers it that way. While some contemporary all-star architectural designers like Frank Gehry are known for signature styles and materials, Prince prefers to be inspired to create unique solutions for each site and situation. In discussion with Dornob, he noted that one of the highest forms of praise one can receive is when someone tells you they recognized something as your design because it looked unlike anything you have done to date. His inspirations include such ground-breaking architects as Antoni Gaudi, Frank Lloyd Wright and Bruce Goff – designers who diverged from the mainstream styles of their times. Looking at just a few works by Bart Prince can easily be misleading.

SCHOLA LATINA UNIVERSALIS. Latiné loqui disce sine molestiá! Learn to speak Latin with ease! ¡Aprende a hablar latín sin esfuerzo! Apprenez à parler latin sans peine! Impara a parlare latino senza sforzo! Latin has represented for the last three thousand years the most genuine expression of our common culture, European and universal. It was the language of our Roman ancestors, like Plautus and Terence, Cicero or Virgil, Seneca and Pliny, as well as Statius and Quintilian, Martial or Tacitus, Suetonius and Gellius, or later on Ausonius and Claudianus, Ammianus Marcellinus, Ambrose or Augustine. Through writers like Boëthius and Cassiodorus, Gregory of Tours and Isidore of Seville, Latin managed to survive the fall of the Roman Empire, and continued to be used throughout the whole of the Middle Ages, as the language of jurisprudence, philosophy and theology, culminating with Thomas Aquinas. Despite the richness of our millenary culture, many people, dispossessed of their roots by the turbulent events and narrow-minded ideologies of the last couple of centuries, have currently been led to believe that the Latin language died with the last of the Romans.
RAMCHARITMANAS ~ Ramayana (Ramayana) Ramayan describes the Divine Lilas of Shri Ram who descended on the earth planet in Ayodhya from His Divine abode, Saket, along His brothers Lakshmana, Bharata and Shatrugahn.

Metabolism (architecture) Interior of one of the capsules in the Nakagin Capsule Tower Metabolism メタボリズム was a post-war Japanese architectural movement that fused ideas about architectural megastructures with those of organic biological growth. It had its first international exposure during CIAM's 1959 meeting and its ideas were tentatively tested by students from Kenzo Tange's MIT studio. During the preparation for the 1960 Tōkyō World Design Conference a group of talented young architects and designers, including Kiyonori Kikutake, Kisho Kurokawa and Fumihiko Maki prepared the publication of the Metabolism manifesto.
