  • As I write this Introduction, President George W. Bush is on his first visit to Europe since taking office. A few days ago, speaking to European heads of state in Gothenburg, he explained why he was refusing to ratify the Kyoto agreement on climate change. People gathered on the streets of the city to protest against his policies on the environment, and against capitalism’s relentless drive for economic growth against the wider interests of humanity and the natural world. Meanwhile,

  • The good friend who has so successfully terminated the task which he felt a vocation to undertake thought it would be of advantage to complete it by presenting to the reader a picture both of my life as a whole and of the work which it has been given me to accomplish. The better to accomplish his undertaking, he abstracted from my correspondence, as well as from the long conversations which we have so often enjoyed together, a great number of those memories of varying importance which serve as landmarks in life; above all in a life like mine, not exempt from many cares, yet not...

  • I often enjoy my lunch at a small café named Holly Berry’s. It’s one of those places where people quickly know your name, at least your first name, where congeniality and food are offered with equal gusto. I was talking to Jack, who most folks would describe as a cook until they taste his food, at which point he’d be better described as a chef. Jack asked me if I was writing a book while on sabbatical and I said that I was, one about the concept of the balance of nature. Jack allowed as to how he had not given a great deal of thought to the...

  • Elements of Pronunciation provides intensive and enjoyable practice in features of English pronunciation that intermediate and more advanced students usually find difficult. The clever and convincing dialogues concentrate on stress timing, weak forms, contractions, linking and consonant clusters, as well as providing valuable intonation practice. The dialogues are recorded in the following form: a ‘listen-and-repeat’ section, then a recording of the dialogue at natural speed, and then a version with pauses to allow intensive practice.

  • Stories from tribes across the North American continent show both the divergent philsophies, as well as the common ground. The editors have wonderfully resisted any urge to edit these stories. Each chapter opens with an overview provided by Erdoes and Ortiz. There are occasional editorial explanations at the ends of stories. They should expecially be applauded for including stories with humor.

  • By extending the current web browser rather than replacing it, we have taken an incremen- tal deployment path. Piggy Bank does not degrade the user’s experience of the Web, but it can improve their experience on RDF-enabled web sites. As a consequence, we expect that more web sites will see value in publishing RDF as more users adopt Piggy Bank. On sites that do not publish RDF, Piggy Bank can invoke screenscrapers to re-structure information within their web pages into RDF.

  • Nobody likes it when you mention the unconscious, and nowadays, hardly anybody likes it when you mention the environment. You risk sounding boring or j udgmental or hysterical, or a mixture of all these. But there is a deeper reason. Nobody likes it when you mention the unconscious, not because you are pointing out something o bscene that should remain hidden-that is at least partly enjoyable. Nobody likes it because when you mention it, it becomes conscious. In the same way, when you mention the environment, you bring it into the foreground. In other words, it stops being the environment.

  • The Japanese, looking as they do for essences in landscapes, enjoy the transi- ence of nature; how the cherry blossoms are here today, gone tomorrow, and will return again next year, and the next after that. Everyone who constitutes a landscape must also cope on that landscape, and in that struggle everyone who beholds landscapes can become sensitive to what is going on as the world continues on, even though they may not know its deep history in geological and evolutionary time. They know context, if not origins.

  • Opportunities for play, throughout childhood, contribute to children’s life chances and development and active toddlers who grow up enjoying physically active play, especially in natural environments, may be laying the foundations for better health and a longer life than sedentary children (Pretty and others 2009). Active play is the most common type of physical activity children take part in outside of school, and outdoor and unstructured play may be one of the best forms of physical activity for children (BHF 2009).

  • The aesthetic enjoyment we have in music and in the phantasy-feelings to which it gives rise reflects further, however, a special functional relationship between the sound- Gestalten and the feelings we experience: the nature or quality of a given phantasy-feeling depends at least in part on the character of the music which provokes it. As Mach and James, Ehrenfels and Witasek all in different ways recognised, there is a certain similarity between sound-Gestalten on the one hand and the psychical states to which they give rise, a fact which opens up the much wider...

  • National parks or generally protected areas (PAs) normally hold a high value as a recreational resource or destination. Though in many cases no fee or charge is made to view or enjoy natural ecosystems, people still spend time and money to reach PAs. These costs of spending (for transport, food, accommodation, time, etc.) can be calculated, and a visitation rates can be compared to expenditures.

  • We prove that the classical Oka property of a complex manifold Y, concerning the existence and homotopy classification of holomorphic mappings from Stein manifolds to Y, is equivalent to a Runge approximation property for holomorphic maps from compact convex sets in Euclidean spaces to Y . Introduction Motivated by the seminal works of Oka [40] and Grauert ([24], [25], [26]) we say that a complex manifold Y enjoys the Oka property if for every Stein manifold X, every compact O(X)-convex subset K of X and every continuous map f0 : X → Y which is holomorphic in an...

  • We show that any set containing a positive proportion of the primes contains a 3-term arithmetic progression. An important ingredient is a proof that the primes enjoy the so-called Hardy-Littlewood majorant property. We derive this by giving a new proof of a rather more general result of Bourgain which, because of a close analogy with a classical argument of Tomas and Stein from Euclidean harmonic analysis, might be called a restriction theorem for the primes. 1. Introduction Arguably the second most famous result of Klaus Roth is his 1953 upper bound [21] on r3 (N ), defined 17 years...
