One evening in September 1991, Kabbalist Rabash summoned his prime student, Michael Laitman, to his bedside and handed him a notebook, whose cover contained one word-Shamati (I Heard), containing transcripts of Rabash's conversations with his father, Yehuda Ashlag, author of a complete commentary on The Zohar. The following morning the Rabash perished.Following Rabash's legacy to disseminate the Kabbalah, Laitman published the notebook just as it was written, retaining the text's transforming powers....
Fifteen years have passed since the publication of the fi rst edition of the Handbook of Bureaucracy
in 1994. Given that this period has been marked by an intense global movement of antibureaucracy,
antigovernment, and antipublic service and administration, the following questions are
quite natural: Why do we need another book on bureaucracy now? Does bureaucracy still matter?
Th e answer to these challenging questions is that despite this intense negative attitude toward
bureaucracy, global interest in the fi rst edition of this book has been overwhelming.
A notable achievement by the U.S. Army as of early 2012
is that 90 percent of the legacy chemical weapons and other
chemical warfare materiel (CWM) from the Second World
War and cold war eras and then stockpiled by the United
States have been safely destroyed.
Whatever cumulative risk
had been posed by the existence of this CWM to communi-ties surrounding the six military sites where it was guarded
and safely maintained since the mid-twentieth century is
Embedded software grows more and more rapidly and complicatedly. This paper proposes a new structure and a comprehensible process to develop embedded software in JNI, a new programming framework allowing Java code running in a JVM to call or be called by native application and library written in C/C++. Therefore, programmer can develop application that benefit the simplicity and reusability features of Java and can always reuse legacy code for controlling device effectively written in C/C++ for embedded applications. ...
This paper introduces document normalization, and addresses the issue of whether controlled document authoring systems can be used in a reverse mode to normalize legacy documents. A paradigm for deep content analysis using such a system is proposed, and an architecture for a document normalization system is described.
Not many technical books continue to be in high demand well
beyond the natural life of their author. It speaks well to the
excellent work done by Abraham Pressman that his book on
switching power supply design, first published in 1977, still enjoys
brisk sales some eight years after his demise at the age of 86. He leaves
us a valuable legacy, well proven by the test of time.
The environment is key to sustaining human economic activity and well-being, for
without a healthy environment, human quality of life is reduced. Most people
would agree that there are also many reasons to protect the environment for its own
inherent worth, and especially to leave a legacy of fully functioning natural
resources. Sustainable land management refers to the activities of humans and
implies that activity will continue in perpetuity. It is a term that attempts to balance
the often conflicting ideals of economic growth and maintaining environmental
quality and viability....
Accounting standards around the world have evolved over centuries of business
and capital market development. In this process, accounting standards historically
were designed to meet the needs of each nation’s capital markets. Those stan-
dards that were found to work well in the legal, cultural, political and economic
context of each nation became the “generally accepted accounting principles,” or
GAAP, for that particular jurisdiction. Naturally, different norms in each nation led
to different GAAPs in each nation.
IN the year 1883 a legacy of eighty thousand dollars was left to the President and Fellows of Yale College in
the city of New Haven, to be held in trust, as a gift from her children, in memory of their beloved and honored
mother, Mrs. Hepsa Ely Silliman.
On this foundation Yale College was requested and directed to establish an annual course of lectures designed
to illustrate the presence and providence, the wisdom and goodness of God, as manifested in the natural and
moral world. These were to be designated as the Mrs. Hepsa Ely Silliman Memorial Lectures. It was the belief
of the testator...
An obituary article in the April 8, I960, Los Angeles Times called him
“one of Americas leading churchmen-philosophers . . . the active leader of
a denomination of more than 100,000 members in 62 churches throughout
the United States . . . [whose] writings have been followed by many famous
religious thinkers and authors, including Dr. Norman Vincent Peale.”
Ernest Shurtleff Holmes had passed away at age seventy-two, leaving
behind a legacy that only now is beginning really to flourish in the world.
Being a spiritual genius just naturally puts you ahead of your time....
Raul’s investment in his son’s musical training went much further, though. Villa-Lobos recounted
that his father adapted a small cello for him, placing a support on a viola, and obliged him to
“discern the genre, style, nature and origin of the musical works to which he made [him] listen.”
Since he had neither built up a wide circle of relations, nor invested in a career yielding higher
financial returns, this precocious initiation in classical music was practically the only legacy that
Raul left to Heitor; in 1899, when he was 37 years old, he died after contracting smallpox.
