Louis Wain

Louis Wain at his drawing table[1] Louis Wain (5 August 1860 – 4 July 1939) was an English artist best known for his drawings, which consistently featured anthropomorphised large-eyed cats and kittens. In his later years he may have suffered from schizophrenia (although this claim is disputed), which, according to some psychiatrists, can be seen in his works. Life and work[edit] A naturalistic cat from early in Wain's career. Louis William Wain was born on 5 August 1860 in Clerkenwell in London. Wain was born with a cleft lip and the doctor gave his parents the orders that he should not be sent to school or taught until he was ten years old. An early Louis Wain caricature, featuring bulldogs rather than cats. Wain soon quit his teaching position to become a freelance artist, and in this role he achieved substantial success. In 1886, Wain's first drawing of anthropomorphised cats was published in the Christmas issue of the Illustrated London News, titled "A Kittens' Christmas Party". Dr. H. Related:  Wiki: People

Fujimura became distraught when rejected by Tamiko, the eldest daughter of Kikuchi Dairoku, in favor of Tatsukichi Minobe, whom she later married. Poem[edit] The poem he wrote before his suicide read: For all the truth, all creation, all secrets of yore Can be told in an instant, by then they’re no more. Ah, The Unexplainable All worries unsettled, heartache unresolved… All questions unanswered, with death, shall be solved. We already teeter, this sheer cliff so high. To end is to start; to surrender is to know. Despair and depression, together they grow. References[edit] Manga en PDF Un excelente Manga, sin nada de gore ni peleas, en donde la trama gira en la vida de dos jóvenes chicas que se llaman "Nana", que es "siete" en japones, y es el número de la buena suerte. Ambas compartirán experiencias, amores, y desamores. Sus personalidades son como la noche y la luna, una es extrovertida y la otra introvertida, pero en este manga que es una especie de culebrón-cómico-dramón, pasaran muchas situaciones para salir adelante. Ha sido todo un fenómeno este manga hace unos años en Japón, sobre todo en el publico femenino ( y masculino también).

Temple Grandin Early life and education[edit] Grandin was born in Boston, Massachusetts, to Eustacia Cutler and Richard Grandin. She was diagnosed with autism at the age of two in 1949. Diagnosed and labeled with brain damage, at that early age she was placed in a structured nursery school with what she considers to have been good teachers. After Grandin's mother spoke to a doctor who suggested speech therapy, she hired a nanny who spent hours playing turn-taking games with Grandin and her sister.[3] Grandin suffered from delayed speech development, as she began talking at the age of four (developmental guidelines anticipate a vocabulary of eight to ten words by eighteen months of age.[4]) She considers herself lucky to have had supportive mentors from primary school onward. Career[edit] Grandin is a prominent and widely cited proponent of the rights of autistic persons and of animal welfare.[6] I first met Temple in the mid-1980s [at the] annual [ASA] conference.

Gautama Buddha Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love. This is the eternal rule. Gautama Buddha (c. 563 – c. 483 BC) was a teacher and religious leader. "Buddha", meaning "awakened one" or "enlightened one" is a title, not a name; the Shakyamuni Buddha, whose original name was Siddhartha Gautama, was the founder of Buddhism. See also Dhammapada Quotes[edit] Even death is not to be feared by one who has lived wisely. No one saves us but ourselves, no one can and no one may. To cease from evil, to do good, and to purify the mind yourself, this is the teaching of all the Buddhas. We are what we think. Let my skin and sinews and bones dry up, together with all the flesh and blood of my body!

» El enigma del Fausto de Goethe Voy a hablar sobre una posible lectura filosófica del Fausto, de Goethe. Elijo hacerlo porque es una obra universal; eso me permite enfrentar el texto como un texto cercano, a pesar de no conocer sus contextos de producción y recepción pormenorizadamente; porque de esta manera evito afrontar cuestiones estilísticas de forma directa, con lo cual evito, a su vez, afrontar el problema de la traducción; y porque no puedo desentenderme del sustento filosófico de la obra, que responde a la rigurosa formación de los alemanes en literatura y filosofía clásicas. Para el desarrollo de mi análisis, me baso fundamentalmente en la edición de Fausto de Cátedra; la Historia de la literatura alemana, de Rodolfo Modern; y en El nacimiento de la filosofía y La sabiduría griega, de Giorgio Colli. En el Fausto, hay una concepción de la realidad enmarcada en la esfera de lo enigmático, a través de la cual se pueden plantear semejanzas y diferencias con la definición de «enigma» hecha por Colli.

Olga of Kiev Saint Olga (Old Church Slavonic: Ольга, hypothetically Old Norse: Helga[1] born c. 890 died 11 July 969, Kiev) was a ruler of Kievan Rus' as regent (945–c. 963) for her son, Svyatoslav. Early life[edit] Olga was a Pskov woman of Varangian extraction who married the future Igor of Kiev, arguably in 903. The Primary Chronicle gives 879 as her date of birth, which is rather unlikely, given the fact that her only son was probably born some 65 years after that date. After Igor's death, she ruled Kievan Rus as regent (945-c. 963) for their son, Svyatoslav. Drevlian Uprising[edit] The following account is taken from the Primary Chronicle. With the best and wisest men out of the way, she planned to destroy the remaining Drevlians. Now Olga gave to each soldier in her army a pigeon or a sparrow, and ordered them to attach by thread to each pigeon and sparrow a piece of sulfur bound with small pieces of cloth.
