Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860-1904) was a Russian short story writer and a playwright. His playwriting career produced four classics, while his best short stories are held in high esteem by writers and critics. Chekhov practiced as a doctor throughout most of his literary career: "Medicine is my lawful wife, " he once said, "and literature is my mistress." Chekhov renounced the theatre after the disastrous reception of The Seagull in 1896; but the play was revived to acclaim by Constantin Stanislavski's Moscow Art Theatre, which subsequently also produced Uncle Vanya and premiered Chekhov's last two plays, Three Sisters and The Cherry Orchard. These four works present a special challenge to the acting ensemble as well as to audiences, because in place of conventional action Chekhov offers a "theatre of mood" and a "submerged life in the text." His originality consists in an early use of the stream-of-consciousness technique combined with a disavowal of the moral finality of traditional story structure.
Loureiro viaja a través de su propia memoria para construir un volumen estructurado en tres bloques: el primero es casi una carta, que va dirigida también a los lectores del futuro; el segundo es un viaje por la biografía de Casares; y por último, la conversación, ya casi legendaria, que Casares y Loureiro mantuvieron antes de la muerte del primero. Incluye este libro, además, doce fotografías tomadas días antes de su inesperado fallecimiento, por lo que adquieren hoy un valor excepcional.
On 15 September 2003 Baha Mousa, a hotel receptionist, was killed by British Army troops in Iraq. He had been arrested the previous day in Basra and was taken to a military base for questioning. For forty-eight hours he and nine other innocent civilians had their heads encased in sandbags and their wrists bound by plastic handcuffs and had been kicked and punched with sustained cruelty. A succession of guards and casual army visitors took pleasure in beating the Iraqis, humiliating them, forcing them into stress positions in temperatures up to 50 degrees Centigrade, and watching them suffer in the dirty concrete building where they were held. Other soldiers, officers, medics, the padre, did not take part in the violence but they saw what was happening and did nothing to stop it. Some knew it was wrong. Some weren't sure. Some were too scared to intervene.
But none said anything or enough until it was far too late and Baha Mousa had been beaten to death. This book tells the inside story of these crimes and their aftermath. It examines the institutional brutality, the bureaucratic apathy, the flawed military police inquiry and the farcical court martial that attempted to hold people criminally responsible. Even though a full public inquiry reported its findings into the crimes in September 2011, its mandate restricted what it could say.
The full story, told with the power of a true-crime expose or court-room drama, shows how this was not simply about a few bad men or 'rotten apples'. It shines a light on all those involved in the crime and its investigation, from the lowest squaddie to the elite of the army and politicians in Cabinet.
What it reveals is devastating.
Everyone wants to know what will happen in the future…everyone. But most people would say there is no way to know what will happen in the future. But there are those people with extraordinary abilities who can predict the future, shamans, astrologers, prophets like Jesus, Edgar Cayce, Nostradamus, etc... In this book we will examine those prophecies to get a clear vision of what will happen in the future, and when it will happen. First, we will examine the prophecies of Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jesus, and the other Bible prophets.
They predict wars, earthquakes, famines, earth changes, and the mystical transformation of humankind to a higher realm of consciousness. Second, we will look at the prophecies of America's greatest psychic, Edgar Cayce. Cayce accurately predicted the stock market crash of 1929 and the beginning of World War II.
Cayce's prophecies about the Great Pyramid and the Sphinx are interesting to us because these monuments were placed as a guidepost of prophecy for our time. Beneath the Sphinx was placed a Hall of Records which will soon be opened to reveal our past and our future. I believe I have discovered where the entrance to this Hall of Records is and quite possibly when it will be opened. Also examined will be the prophecies contained in the Great Pyramid of Giza, where a French architect has discovered secret unopened chambers. Third, we will examine the physical history of the human race, from primitive man to the new type of human body which will emerge in the future, the so-called Fifth Root Race, and how the sons of god used DNA introgression to create modern man. Fourth, we will examine the history of UFOs and alien intervention on our planet from the Battle of Los Angeles to Roswell to Belgium to Phoenix. We will look at what the aliens have been up to the past 70 years, and what they will be doing in the future. Why were they so interested in American nuclear bases? Are they preparing to change human DNA to create a human hybrid? Are they aliens or angels? Fifth, we will examine the incredible astrological aspects of 2024 through 2027, and how this could be the time period that all these prophecies will be fulfilled. We will look at specific dates during this time period to try to predict what will be happening during those years.
