"I think I am losing my grip on reality. This can't be happening at all. Everything is different all of a sudden. Everything, the connections, the relations, the value system, the suppositions, my theories, my entire life, my existence is dissolving right in front of my eyes. There is total confusion in my mind, my brain. So I stop thinking for the time being. My gut feeling is taking over now. Magdalena must be speaking the truth. Nobody could make that scenario up. I am desperately trying to think straight.” During a holiday trip on Sicily, a former RAF comrade runs into Cornelia, the third generation doctor (RAF vocabulary: third line), who rudely pushes him out of his placid life as a bookseller. She claims the lost RAF ground depots and conjures up his RAF past. At Lake Chiem in Bavaria, they meet other RAF people. During the opening of a depot near Aschaffenburg, things are getting out of hand and culminate in a mysterious murder. Eventually, the situation takes an unexpected turn and a gigantic plot is revealed to him.

How technologies can get it wrong in sports, and what the consequences are—referees undermined, fans heartbroken, and the illusion of perfect accuracy maintained. Good call or bad call, referees and umpires have always had the final say in sports. Bad calls are more visible: plays are televised backward and forward and in slow motion. New technologies—the Hawk-Eye system used in tennis and cricket, for example, and the goal-line technology used in English football—introduced to correct bad calls sometimes get it right and sometimes get it wrong, but always undermine the authority of referees and umpires. Bad Call looks at the technologies used to make refereeing decisions in sports, analyzes them in action, and explains the consequences. Used well, technologies can help referees reach the right decision and deliver justice for fans: a fair match in which the best team wins. Used poorly, however, decision-making technologies pass off statements of probability as perfect accuracy and perpetuate a mythology of infallibility. The authors re-analyze three seasons of play in English Premier League football, and discover that goal line technology was irrelevant; so many crucial wrong decisions were made that different teams should have won the Premiership, advanced to the Champions League, and been relegated. Simple video replay could have prevented most of these bad calls. (Major League baseball learned this lesson, introducing expanded replay after a bad call cost Detroit Tigers pitcher Armando Galarraga a perfect game.) What matters in sports is not computer-generated projections of ball position but what is seen by the human eye—reconciling what the sports fan sees and what the game official sees.
Referee is a long way off and has bad view on incident. The assistant flags, and it's a bad decision. Feb. 1, 2014 West Ham Utd 2 vs. Swansea 0 Howard Webb Andy Carroll is sent off for swinging elbow at Swansea's Chico Flores.

Where does the Greek novel come from? This book argues that whereas much of Greek literature was committed to a form of cultural purism, presenting itself as part of a continuous tradition reaching back to founding fathers within the tradition, the novel revelled in cultural hybridity. The earliest Greek novelistic literature combined Greek and non-Greek traditions (or at least affected to combine them: it is often hard to tell how 'authentic' the non-Greek material is). More than this, however, it also often self-consciously explored its own hybridity by focusing on stories of cultural hybridisation, or what we would now call 'mixed-race' relations. This book is thus not a conventional account of the origins of the Greek novel: it is not an attempt to pinpoint the moment of invention, and to trace its subsequent development in a straight line. Rather, it makes a virtue of the murkiness, or 'dirtiness', of the origins of the novel: there is no single point of creation, no pure tradition, only transgression, transformation and mess. The novel thus emerges as an outlier within the Greek literary corpus: a form of literature written in Greek, but not always committing to Greek cultural identity. Dirty Love focuses particularly on the relationship between Persian, Egyptian, Jewish and Greek literature, and covers such texts as Ctesias' Persica, Joseph and Aseneth, the Alexander Romance and the tale of Ninus and Semiramis. It will appeal to those interested not only in Greek literary history, but also in near-eastern and biblical literature.
He therefore commands him to 'view' (theeseai, thečsasthai) her naked (Hdt, 1.8.2–3). Gyges protests that it is unethical to view women naked, insisting that he is indeed already persuaded (peithomai) that she is the most beautiful of ...

Self-awareness, self-belief, self-esteem, self-acceptance, self-love, self-renewal: how would you like to transform your "self"? Self-help guru Brian Mayne guides readers on an inward journey of personal discovery that will lead them to greater fulfillment and confidence. The results are amazing, yet his method is beautifully simple: Mayne explains how to create a "Self Map" that activates the whole brain and serves as a reminder of the person you’d like to become. This map literally acts like a subconscious command, and stimulates you to act upon your desires; by regularly meditating on it you can integrate your "low-self ego" with your "High-Self spirit" to become your authentic, natural True Self.
I've often found her simple childlike wisdom to be enlightening. When I asked her opinion on viewpoints she replied: 'Daddy, a good view is when you can see the whole of the garden and it looks beautiful. A bad view is when the garden ...
