Flâneur Paul Gavarni, Le Flâneur, 1842. Flâneur (pronounced: [flɑnœʁ]), from the French noun flâneur, means "stroller", "lounger", "saunterer", or "loafer". Flânerie refers to the act of strolling, with all of its accompanying associations. The flâneur was, first of all, a literary type from 19th century France, essential to any picture of the streets of Paris. Human Urine There are commercial and household products that will help you pass the test. Some people are objecting to commercial products because they "are just trying to cash in on the War on Drugs." They also charge high prices and water alone tends to work for most.

Professor John S. Gero Designing is one of the most significant of the purposeful cognitive acts of humans. Surprisingly little is known about it. This research area draws from cognitive science and applied psychology and extends techniques used in those disciplines to make them more useful in the study and elucidation of designing. The primary tool is the protocol study or protocol analysis. Here the designer is studied while carrying out designing tasks, generally in a laboratory setting although increasingly in situ. Tracks It has been four years since the percussive, polyrhythmic sounds of Lisbon's batida scene began trickling out of the city on the Tagus and making their way to the outside world (or at least the rest of Europe and North America)—first via DJ Marfox and his Príncipe Discos debut, Eu Sei Quem Sou, and then peers and protégés like DJ Nigga Fox, Blacksea Não Maya, Piquenos DJs Do Guetto, and Nidia Minaj. The music's path has run parallel, in some ways, to Chicago footwork's: both are inner-city styles built around radically innovative rhythms that at first could sound forbiddingly difficult to untrained ears, and both have bubbled up to influence the wider electronic landscape. If batida no longer sounds quite as alien as it did upon a first encounter with its spinning rotors and elliptical movements, it's still dazzling in its rhythmic complexity: Atop a shuffling approximation of a 4/4 beat balances an unsteady beehive of motion, aswarm with kinetic energy.

Harold Bloom Creates a Massive List of Works in The "Western Canon": Read Many of the Books Free Online I have little desire to rehash the politics, but the facts are plain: by the time I arrived in college as an undergraduate English major in the mid-90s, the idea of the “Western Canon” as a container of—in the words of a famous hymn—“all that’s good, and great, and true” was seriously on the wane, to put it mildly. And in many quarters of academia, mention of the name of Yale literary critic Harold Bloom provoked, at the very least, a raised eyebrow and pointed silence. Bloom’s reputation perhaps unfairly fell victim to the so-called “Canon Wars,” likely at times because of a misidentification with political philosopher Allan Bloom.

Nude in your hot tub, facing the abyss (A literary manifesto after the end of Literature and Manifestos) Down from the Mountain Once upon a time, writers were like gods, and lived in the mountains. They were either destitute hermits or aristocratic lunatics, and they wrote only to communicate with the already dead or the unborn, or for no one at all. They had never heard of the marketplace, they were arcane and antisocial. Though they might have lamented their lives—which were marked by solitude and sadness—they lived and breathed in the sacred realm of Literature.

Chapter 3: Creating Classical Fractals on the Macintosh "Every revolution was first a thought in one man's mind." - Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1870 | FractaSketch | Cantor Set | Peano Curve | Hilbert Curve | Koch Curve | Pascal Triangle | Dragon Curve | Finite Segments | Aphra Behn Aphra Behn (/ˈæfrə bɛn/;[1] baptised 14 December 1640 – 16 April 1689) was a prolific dramatist of the English Restoration, one of the first English professional female literary writers.[2] Along with Delarivier Manley and Eliza Haywood, she is sometimes referred to as part of "The fair triumvirate of wit." Little is known for certain about Behn's life except for her work as an author and as a spy for the British crown. There is almost no documentary evidence of the details of her first 27 years. She possibly spent time in Surinam, although much of her fiction has become entwined with her apocryphal biography.
