One word: Borg!
"Un biglietto d'entrata nella memoria costa solo 13 dollari. Basta trovarsi nei pressi della cittadina di Bethel, un'ora di macchina a nord di New York, e sarete attirati da cartelli che indicano una direzione e un nome che dopo quarant'anni manda ancora inaspettate scariche elettriche: Woodstock. Anzi per l'esattezza: Woodstock Museum. Una cosa del genere poteva accadere solo in America. A chi altri poteva venire in mente di costruire un museo dedicato a un concerto? Un concerto ...
Un oggetto immateriale, intangibile, esistito solo nel flusso spazio-temporale di tre giorni.
Come è possibile? E, soprattutto, cosa è stato davvero Woodstock? Di sicuro molto di più che un semplice festival di musica. Diciamo una singolarità della storia, un monumento costruito in tempo reale a una rivoluzione che si stava sbriciolando nello spazio di un sogno, e quindi necessariamente un'opera immateriale, di cui non sarebbe rimasta nessuna traccia fisica, un'idea, un concetto. È stata una singolarità? Ovvero un evento estremo, nel quale le normali leggi dello spazio-tempo subiscono alterazioni unìche? O più semplicemente il climax, l'inevitabile orgasmo di un'eccitazione generazionale durata qualche anno?"
How does Islam engage with the idea of the modern and with the contemporary world? How is Muslim tradition to be reconciled with a world in continuous flux and change? These questions lie at the heart of current discussions of the Islamic faith and of its doctrines, beliefs and practices.
Engaging directly with such questions, this important volume discusses such key themes as identity and citizenship, piety and protest and music and modes of dress. Muslim as well as non-Muslim scholars explore how religiosity and tradition may both have an active role to play in the unfolding of what we understand of as "the modern." Modernity is commonly portrayed as a break with traditionalism: and as a marriage to the secular. Yet the core values at stake--from the ethos of intellectualism to the pluralism of civic culture--have roots in diverse civilizations, and certainly in those of Islam. A vital theme in the book is the role played by the ethical imagination in expressions of the civil determined by a diversity of Qur’anic understandings. This role is important in practices of civil society and citizenship, in grappling with new technologies, and in the challenges posed by political violence. Since 9/11, the West's failure to come to grips with plural modernities has reinforced simplistic assumptions about a "clash of civilizations." Fresh perspectives are offered here on what it is to be both modern and Muslim, mindful of the multiple narratives that inform both identities.

More than 11,000 babies are born every day in the United States. Their parents prepare the room, buy all the equipment and diapers, go to birthing classes, find a pediatrician and anxiously await their arrival. Rarely do these parents have any preparation for the sleep deprivation before them. Kim West, author of "Good Night, Sleep Tight" and nationally known as "The SleepLady (tm)" has written 52 Sleep Secrets for Babies" to help new parents learn what they need to do to get their babies - and themselves - the sleep they need. The Sleep Lady(R)approach is founded on my general beliefs as a family therapist: I'm a proponent of parents developing and maintaining a secure attachment with their child while creating a family life where everyone is happy, healthy and well-rested. My sleep approach builds on step-by-step changes in bedtime, napping and overnight routines so that a child can develop sleep independence and sleep more soundly and longer while feeling confident that Mom and Dad will be nearby and responsive. It's a gentler alternative for families who can't stomach the idea of letting their babies cry it out; for families who have tried Ferber without success; and for families who had success earlier on with crying it out but find that it isn't working now. I have also worked with families who believe in co-sleeping but whose babies don't really sleep all that well, even nestled snugly with Mom and Dad. And I've guided many families who did co-sleep for a few months or a few years but now want the family bed to revert to a marital one. 52 Sleep Secrets for Babies summarizes much of what I have learned from working with hundreds of families and that I now teach to the new parents I see in my practice and through my website. So many have asked me for a quick and easy to follow guide to helping their babies learn to sleep and to help them prevent problems down the road, I have put together this little book that you can carry with you anywhere and refer to before and after sleep problems arise.
In 1845 H.M.S. Erebus and Terror sailed from England under the command of Sir John Franklin in quest of the fabled Northwest Passage and never returned. For more than ten years British and American vessels combed the frozen seas in search of the missing ships without success.
In 1859 Sir Leopold McClintock discovered that the expedition came to grief in the Canadian Arctic Archipelago, and that the crews abandoned their ships and died as they walked along the desolate shores of King William Island. According to Inuit testimony gathered in 1864-69 by American explorer Charles F. Hall, Captain Crozier, whom the Eskimos called Aglooka, escaped south with Captain Fitzjames and some others to Back's Fish River. What happened to them is one of the cruxes of the Franklin problem and the main feature of this book.
