Betende Hände..
Praying hands, also known as Study of the Hands of an Apostle (Studie zu den Händen eines Apostels), is a pen-and-ink drawing by the German printmaker, painter and theorist Albrecht Dürer, born on 21 May 1471, third child and second son of his parents, who had at least 14 and possibly as many as eighteen children..His father, Albrecht Dürer the Elder, was a successful goldsmith..A door is featured in the coat-of-arms the family acquired..After completing his term of apprenticeship, Dürer followed the common German custom of taking Wanderjahre, in effect gap years, in which the apprentice learned skills from artists in other areas..The journeyman brotherhoods had established a standard to ensure that wandering journeymen are not mistaken for tramps and vagabonds..Very soon after his return to Nuremberg, on 7 July 1494, at the age of 23, Dürer was married to Agnes Frey following an arrangement made during his absence..Within three months of his marriage, Dürer left for Italy, alone, perhaps stimulated by an outbreak of plague in Nuremberg..His famous series of 16 great designs for the Apocalypse is dated 1498, as is his engraving of St. Michael Fighting the Dragon (Rev. 12:7)..In Italy, he returned to painting, at first producing a series of works executed in tempera on linen..These include portraits and altarpieces, notably, the Paumgartner altarpiece and the Adoration of the Magi..In 1515, he created his woodcut of a Rhinoceros which had arrived in Lisbon from a written description and sketch by another artist, without ever seeing the animal himself..(The most common kind of rhinitis is allergic rhinitis, which is usually triggered by airborne allergens)..Maximilian's death came at a time when Dürer was concerned he was losing "my sight and freedom of hand" (perhaps caused by arthritis) and increasingly affected by the writings of Martin Luther..At the request of Christian II of Denmark, Dürer went to Brussels to paint the King's portrait..On his return to Nuremberg, Dürer worked on a number of grand projects with religious themes, including a crucifixion scene and a Sacra Conversazione, though neither was completed..Dürer died in Nuremberg at the age of 56, leaving an estate valued at 6,874 florins..His large house (purchased from the heirs of the astronomer Walther), remains a prominent Nuremberg landmark.. It is now a museum..He is buried in the Johannisfriedhof cemetery..

The ROBert Plant - If I Were A Carpenter..

The word potable came into English from the Late Latin potabilis, meaning drinkable..Disposal of wastewaters from an industrial plant is a difficult and costly problem..The water fluoridation controversy arises from political, moral, ethical, economic, and safety concerns regarding the fluoridation of public water supplies..A molecule of heavy water has 2 deuterium atoms in place of the 2 protium atoms of ordinary "light" water..Heavy water is not radioactive..(apart from in the sea) In its pure form, it has a density about 11% greater than water, but is otherwise physically and chemically similar..Heavy water was first produced in 1932, a few months after the discovery of deuterium..With the discovery of nuclear fission in late 1938, and the need for a neutron moderator that captured few neutrons, heavy water became a component of early nuclear energy research..Since then, heavy water has been an essential component in some types of reactors, both those that generate power and those designed to produce isotopes for nuclear weapons..Most modern reactors use enriched uranium with ordinary water as the moderator..Radioactive waste has been discharged into the Irish Sea as part of operations at Sellafield since 1952..The Irish Sea has been described by Greenpeace as the most radioactively contaminated in the world, contaminating seawater, sediments & marine life, soaking up an estimated 200 kg (440 lb) of plutonium..The highest concentration is found in the eastern Irish Sea in sediment banks lying parallel to the Cumbrian coast..The consumption of seafood harvested from the Irish Sea is the main pathway for exposure of humans to radioactivity..Sushi Anyone ?..After 13 years of dedication, diligence and enlightening research Dr. Dean Murphy D.D.S. published the book "The Devil's Poison" "How fluoride is killing you"..Fluoridation of our community water systems can well become their most subtle weapon for our sure physical and mental deterioration, fluoride in large amounts interferes with bone formation..The ultraviolet part of sunlight can also kill pathogens in water..You scientists are supposed to come up with a way of solving this problem rather than feeding the opposition?.It doesn't make any Rense.. The Chinese had been imported unlawfully via containers into Liverpool and were hired out through local criminal agents of international Chinese Triads; they were to be paid £5 per 25 kg of cockles..She was a fish-monger, but sure 'twas no wonder..Hey, Molly - I'm not gonna stand out here forever!.. let it melt slowly in hot butter in a sarge saucepan... course it's a friendly call..Listen, if it wasn't probably wouldn't have even got it..And for this reason, men, I want to impress upon you the need for extreme watchfulness, it's beginning to look like, uh, General Ripper exceeded his authority..All right... listen, don't forget to say your prayers! hear what I'm sayin'?..
