The Reverse Perspective : Fifteen Years of EcoDesign at Philips Co...

By: Ph.D. Ab Stevels

The booklet ‘EcoDesign at Philips Consumer Electronics (PCE), 1993-2008, the Reverse Perspective’, described the development of EcoDesign in this division of the Philips concern. The introduction process was summarized in a model consisting of five ‘waves’. Some fifty short stories illustrating these developments were presented as well. This material represents a set of experiences of which many elements are still relevant today for practitioners of applied EcoDesign and...

"Organizational decisions –good, bad or confusing– did not guarantee that EcoDesign was automatically on the agenda of PCE. Ensuring credibility and being on the action agenda were the first priority…." "Making clear that environmental benefits combine often with tangible business benefits (cost reduction, streamlining of operation) and putting the business benefits first in the communication in the internal value chain added a lot to the credibility and acceptance of...

Evermore and Pants

By: Margaret Medici

Two short stories, each looks at life in the future. In Evermore, an old lady finds solace in a gift from her husband. In Pants, a son supports his elderly mother using an unusual nurse.

From Evermore: The moment the great glass doors of the shopping mall slid silently open, Miriam regretted her decision to come. She hadn’t visited the mall for over a year and was horrified to find herself besieged by scantily clad young men and women, all jostling to persuade her to visit their shop. They were astonishingly beautiful: tall, graceful, perfect features, with large eyes and ideal bodies.

Drobeta Turnu Severin - Mehedinti, Romania

By: Nicolae Sfetcu

The modern town of Drobeta Turnu Severin has a relatively new history. It made its appearance on the map of Romania and on that of the world following General Pavel Kiseleff’s decree on the 22nd of April, 1833. The town got its name from the majestic remains of the Severin Fortress which used to look down the Danube and surrounding region at some ancient times. It was erected following a pre-established plan, with wide streets falling perpendicularly onto the Danube or ...

Humans have been killing animals for millennia and now scientists acknowledge that we are living in a mass extinction of life caused by humanity. Added to this is an animal holocaust in which increasing numbers of people endlessly demand animals to eat, wear, kill for sport, experiment on, and more. In almost anyone's definition this is a man-made disaster - a war on animals - undeclared and devastatingly carried out. Animals need allies and making active allies for anim...

Dark Matter and Dark Energy Paradox Essay (Brief)

By: Cres Huang

Many incomprehensible paradoxes are created by dark matter and dark energy. Physical matter, dark or not, has to occupy space and prevent other matter from taking the same location. On the other hand, isn't it meaningless if dark matter and dark energy can occupy the same space of normal matter and energy without interactions?

Physical dark matter has to occupy space and prevent normal matter from taking the same location. Any activity of dark matter and dark energy would disturb the normal matter in it's vicinity and vice versa. On the other hand, isn't it fictitious if normal matter and dark matter can occupy the same space and there is no interactions?

Prey

Where trust is involved...BEWARE

“You don’t get it. Do you? That puny little muscle between your ears is too chucked full of standard procedure to even come close to an idea that does not fit into one of your concrete scenarios with solid, verifiable evidence. But it is true. Everything I have told you is true. The man was a monster…a wretched beast who needed killing. I saw what he did. I saw….damn…..you have to listen to me. He…it….needed killing and someone, someone like me had to do it because you ...

The Essence of all Religion

By: Param Pujya Dada Bhagwan; Niruben Amin, Editor

Those seeking to lead a spiritual life inevitably face challenges in their pursuit of spirituality and practice. As spiritual development progresses, facing one’s faults, failures, and unintentional mistakes become disconcerting – even for the most sincere seeker. One may then ask, “What are the benefits of the different types of religion? From the many religions of the world, which practices will accelerate my spiritual growth? In actuality, how to live exactly?” ...

Evanghelia Neagră

By: Marcu Jura

”Evanghelia neagră” e un micro-roman despre lume ca rețea, ca pânză de paianjen; despre desprindere din ”matrix”; despre malefic; despre om ca Ales; despre lupta între păianjeni și transcendent.

Bine și rău, vină, căință, mizerie… cum poate urca omul spre zei când stă în ghenunchi cu fruntea‐n țărână? Dumnezeu bun, Diavol rău. Dumnezeu te pedepsește pentru că e bun, Diavolul îți oferă plăcere fiindcă e rău. A naibii logică a paradoxului. Logica credinței, credința logică. Abureli. Astfel mi se învălmășeau în cap, într‐un du‐te‐vino haotic, idei și imagini pe care nu puteam să le ordonez, să le storc, să extrag din ele Ideea. N‐am reușit decât să pricep că, omene...

A Good God : The Human Mind Bears any Heaven and any Hell

By: José Valteno Dos Santos; Carolina Coimbra, Editor

Many gods there are, for whom have eyes to see; in the East and in the West. Dead gods - Mayans, Incas, Aztecs and others; living gods charging dearly for their promises of gifts, and so many gods who are forged at all times and will forged. Here rises this good god, in everything compatible with his powers (omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient) and the expectations of his offspring. Truly, a god is born here who does not need to be evil in order to do good; does...

Lumină și Tenebre

By: Marc D. Jura

Am scris aceste poeme de la 17 la 26 de ani. Un răstimp marcat de catastrofe interioare; un răstimp în care am orbecăit prin lumină și am traversat lucid tenebrele. Un labirint temporal în a cărui traversare mi-am descoperit centrul.

Început A venit la mine lumina Şi m-a rugat Să o cânt Într-un vers Şi-am cântat-o Însă Ciudat Mi-era versul plin De-ntuneric

Trei Povestiri

By: Marcu Jura

”Trei povestiri” nu este un simplu volum de povestiri. Cele trei proze scurte care îl compun formează un întreg. E mai degrabă un roman cu trei capitole distincte. ”Trei povestiri” e a doua carte dintr-o trilogie pe care autorul o începe cu romanul ”Evanghelia neagră” (care va fi publicat ulterior apariției acestui volum) și o va finaliza cu un alt roman (în lucru la data publicării volumului de față). Elementul comun al celor 3 cărți este androginul. Abia cristalizat ...

- Eu zic că e bine. Ceva se întâmplă cu conștiința ta. Nu crezi? - Poate, ceva zen. Ți-a rămas ciorba tot în farfurie. - Da, când strângi masa, ai putea s-o arunci. E casa ta. Își puse cotul pe masă, palma pe ochi. Își strânse craniul între degetul mare și cel mijlociu. Coborî, apăsat, pe obraji, până la bărbie și înapoi. - Când se va termina? - Lucrurile ăstea cer timp. - Și pe urmă? - De unde să știu?

Living Patiently When God Seems Far Away : A Devotional Study of Job

By: Dr. J. Allen Blair

Job provides a living example of God's matchless care and provision for His saints. Who of us is without trials or hardships of some kind? The circumstances may differ from Job's but the sorrow and anxiety are the same. But more than this, the Lord is the same. As He undertook so overwhelming for Job, we may trust Him to do the same for us. It is for this reason that living patiently is not only a requisite for happiness but a grand privilege for all who know the Lo...

Probably the oldest book in the world is the book of Job, which is believed to have been put into writing by Moses. Though it is not quite certain as to the time when the events of the book transpired, many seem to think that it was during Abraham's day. Doubtless it was no later, for there was no mention of Israel, the Tabernacle, the Temple, the law, or anything that would suggest a later date. The theme of the book seems to be, "The child of God facing trials". ...

Big Bang Inflation Paradox Essay

By: Cres Huang

Disregarding the cosmic radiation redshift, the interpretation of universe expansion is not logically sound. The size of the universe is defined by it's boundary, not the separation and congregation of objects. Unless the boundary of the universe can be measured, it's size can not be defined. The interpretation of big bang and universe expansion based on the receding of objects is fundamentally false.

What is Truth : Beit Edition

By: Benjamin Lee Cooper

There are many things in this book that might interest you, all of which have something to do with the Bible, or religions which claim to represent the Bible, or nations which have shaped Biblical history. There are some mathematical examples, Hebrew teachings, Bible verses shown in ways that most would not expect, and much more.

My first challenge to you is that you pray to our Creator, our Father in Heaven who I will from now on usually refer to as “our Father” or “Yehovah”. In this prayer please ask our Father to show you the truth by preparing your mind not for what I want you to see, but for what he wants you to see. Please ask him to show you real truth, not just what somebody says is the truth.
