Science History of the Universe

By: Francis Rolt Wheeler

In the present volume there have been covered in a comprehensive and popular manner the various departments of Astronomy. Owing to its treatment in a definitely historical and descriptive manner, however, it may be possible to supplement the general review by a few brief statements of some of the results and problems that confront us in the actual work of the observational astronomy of to-day....

The astronomical beliefs of prehistoric man were doubt similar to those entertained by the Eskimo of the Arctic regions and the untutored tribes of Argentine' Republic, South Africa and Australia, tribes who, living only for the day, concern themselves but little with to- morrow and yesterday and care nothing about the universe......

Einstein, Arthur Eddington dan Astronomy

By: Guru Gatot Soedarto

Buku ini meninjau kembali cara pembuktian teori relativitas umum sesuai yang diminta oleh pencetus teori, Albert Einstein, dan kemudian dilaksanakan pada tahun 1919 oleh Tim ilmuwan Inggris dipimpin oleh Arthur Stanley Eddington....

Usulan pembuktian teori relativitas umum yang disampaikan oleh Einstein, pencetus teori tersebut, merupakan usulan yang keliru bila ditinjau dari disiplin ilmu astronomi. Dan kekeliruan makin berkembang ketika usulan yang salah itu dilaksanakan oleh dua tim ilmuwan Inggris dengan memotret bintang pada saat terjadinya gerhana matahari pada tahun 1919.Sulit dipahami mengapa bisa terjadi hal yang demikian : mengabaikan argumen posisi geografis, ketinggian pengamat, dan waktu pengamatan yang intinya mengabaikan adanya refraksi cahaya / hukum Snellius. ...

Солнечная система : Альтернативные теории

By: Светлана Денисова

Общепринято считать, что орбиты планет неизменны, однако, это не так. В этом изменчивом мире нет ничего абсолютно постоянного. Так и орбиты планет раскручиваются по спирали, которые могут быть восходящими или нисходящими. Солнце настолько старая, что основная масса ее спутников разрушена. Ученые считают, что газовые гиганты Юпитер, Сатурн, Уран и Нептун всегда были такими. Это ошибочное мнение... Со времен Галлилея люди знают о пятнах на Солнце, но по сей день не знают их причину. Она оказалась очень простой и вполне доказуемой. Когда и почему погибла Атлантида? Куда исчезли мамонты и, как млеко питающиеся появились в океане? Возможно, в этой книге вы найдете ответ на эти и другие вопросы....

בעמק הבכא The Wishing-Ring

By: מנדלה מוכר ספרים Mendele Mocher Sforim ; Sholem Yakov שלום יעקב אברמוביץ Abramovich

Mendele Mocher Sforim (Mendele Book seller, literary name for Shalom Jacob Abramovitsch) (1835 - 1917, b. Kapulye, Belorussia), one of the first modern Jewish writers, wrote in both Hebrew and Yiddish throughout his career. In his work he described with sharp satirical criticism the traditional life in small Jewish towns, as well as tendencies for assimilation of learned Jews at the time. He was regarded as the grandfather of Yiddish literature but the Hebraic-Zionist atmosphere in Odessa influenced him, and in 1886 he turned to writing Hebrew fiction. Being a Jew has never been easy, certainly not in the 19th century Eastern Europe. Mendele Mocher Sforim wrote with love, and bitterness, about the harsh conditions of Jewish life at the time. The book tells the story of Hershele who leaves the harsh conditions in Russia for Germany, there to become an educated man of the world, but at the same time remaining a committed Jew. The book was first written in Yiddish (Dos Vintshfingerl) and later translated by the author into Hebrew (Emek Ha-Bakha, the vale of tears). (Summary by Omri Lernau)...

Madame Firmiani

By: Honoré de Balzac

Excerpt: Many tales, either rich in situations or made dramatic by some of the innumerable tricks of chance, carry with them their own particular setting, which can be rendered artistically or simply by those who narrate them, without their subjects losing any, even the least of their charms. But there are some incidents in human experience to which the heart alone is able to give life; there are certain details --shall we call them anatomical?--the delicate touches of which cannot be made to reappear unless by an equally delicate rendering of thought; there are portraits which require the infusion of a soul, and mean nothing unless the subtlest expression of the speaking countenance is given; furthermore, there are things which we know not how to say or do without the aid of secret harmonies which a day, an hour, a fortunate conjunction of celestial signs, or an inward moral tendency may produce....

The Door in the Wall and Other Stories

By: H. G. Wells

Excerpt: One confidential evening, not three months ago, Lionel Wallace told me this story of the Door in the Wall. And at the time I thought that so far as he was concerned it was a true story. He told it me with such a direct simplicity of conviction that I could not do otherwise than believe in him. But in the morning, in my own flat, I woke to a different atmosphere, and as I lay in bed and recalled the things he had told me, stripped of the glamour of his earnest slow voice, denuded of the focussed shaded table light, the shadowy atmosphere that wrapped about him and the pleasant bright things, the dessert and glasses and napery of the dinner we had shared, making them for the time a bright little world quite cut off from every-day realities, I saw it all as frankly incredible. ?He was mystifying!? I said, and then: ?How well he did it!? It isn?t quite the thing I should have expected him, of all people, to do well.?...

Extract from Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven

By: Mark Twain

Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven is a short-story written by American writer Mark Twain and published in 1909. The story follows Captain Stormfield on his extremely long cosmic journey to heaven, his accidental misplacement, his short-lived interest in singing and playing the harp, and the obsession of souls with the celebrities of heaven, like Adam and Moses, whom, according to Twain, become as distant to most people in heaven as living celebrities are on Earth. Twain uses this story to show his view that the common conception of heaven is ludicrous and points out the incongruities of such beliefs. (from Wikipedia)...

ספר הקבצנים Fishke the Lame (The Book of Beggars)

By: מנדלה מוכר ספרים Mendele Mocher Sforim ; Sholem Yakov שלום יעקב אברמוביץ Abramovich

Mendele Mocher Sforim (Literary name for Shalom Jacob Abramovitsch) (1835 - 1917, b. Kapulye, Belorussia), one of the first modern Jewish writers, wrote in both Hebrew and Yiddish throughout his career. In his work he described with sharp satirical criticism the traditional life in small Jewish towns, as well as tendencies for assimilation of learned Jews at the time. He was regarded as the grandfather of Yiddish literature, but the Hebraic-Zionist atmosphere in Odessa influenced him, and in 1886 he turned to writing Hebrew fiction. The Book of Beggars, or Fishke the Lame, was one of the first romances written in Hebrew in Eastern Europe. It was published in Yiddish in 1869 and later translated into Hebrew by the author. Mendeli used a satirical style mixed with tears and compassion to describe Jews of the lowest classes in small poor communities in Eastern Europe of the second half of the 19th century, organized to look for food and charity. This was the background for an entangled story of theft, rape and sentimental love, with an emphasis on suffering and hardships of women. (Summary by Omri Lernau)...

Shijo continued. ‘See the building will be complete only if all our pieces are put together and kept in place. Similarly our home will only be complete if all of us are together.

Vrishabhathinte Kannu : Collection of Short Stories

By: Harikumar Edasseri

The story Vrishabhathinte Kannu is about an accident in which a four year old boy gets killed together with his paternal uncle. The story centers around the sub-tenant of one of the flats in the building, who was so friendly with the child. He is moved by the incident, and decides to go to the hospital to see the child. It is the traumatic experience of this man the story is about. ...

Behind him was the security guard of the morgue, and still farther behind in the dark cold room were the cold bodies wrapped up in white linen. He remembered what Hiren Mehta had said, and what Mehta’s son had said. Beyond the eyes of the evil planets, fatalist beliefs, and lives predetermined in a four dimensional field of the world, he saw the indefinable, and unforeseeable, but definite death. Back in the building he was climbing the staircase, and when he reached the second floor he saw Aditya’s house still locked. On the latch of the door was kept a packet of flowers. He wondered where have they all gone. They might have gone to her husband’s home. They might come only after a few days. The flowers will remain there until they come back. After all, what is the relation between flowers and death? (Vrishabhathinte Kannu)...
