Read online Sur les traces d'Abraham Ulrikab: les évenements de 1880-1881.pdf PDF, EPUB, MOBI, TXT, DOC Sur les traces d'Abraham Ulrikab: les évenements de 1880-1881 In August Abraham and seven other Inuit aged from months to years old were recruited by Norwegian Johan Adrian Jacobsen to become the latest exotic attraction in Carl Hagenbeck s ethnographic shows The group was exhibited in zoos in Hamburg Berlin Prague Frankfurt Darmstadt Krefeld and Paris Soon the Inuit realized their coming to Europe was a mistake and they longed to return home to Labrador Sadly none of them did all eight having been killed by smallpox less than four months after setting foot in Europe Three of them died in Germany The remaining five including Abraham Ulrikab died in Paris .

Abraham was literate and kept a diary So did Johan Adrian Jacobsen Even though both diaries survived to this day the story remained incomplete In France Rivet s reading of the English translation of Abraham s diary left her with many unanswered questions Where were the Inuit buried What happened to their remains Where was the skullcap of one of the Inuit that Jacobsen took after the autopsy and carried wrapped in his luggage all the way to Paris Were the artefacts Jacobsen collected in Labrador graves and later sold to a Paris museum still in Paris Nobody knew Intrigued and French being her mother tongue in France set out to look for answers The more she dug the more riveting the story became and totally unsuspected facets emerged .

Four years and three research trips to Europe later the book i In the Footsteps of Abraham Ulrikab i reveals her findings At last years after the death of Abraham Maria Nuggasak Paingu Tigianniak Tobias Sara and Ulrike the events that unfolded in Paris are finally elucidated and even more extraordinarily this research has brought to light an opportunity to change the course of Abraham s story Indeed his expressed wish to come home to Labrador could eventually become a reality His remains having been located in Paris along with those of his wife Ulrike their daughter Maria young Tobias and the shaman Tigianniak .

i I do not long for earthly possessions but this is what I long for to see my relatives again who are over there i Abraham January .

It is our dearest hope that this book will provide the Labrador Inuit community with all the information they require to initiate the yet to be written chapter where they will make the decision to repatriate or not the remains of their countrymen The publication of this book is therefore seen as the catalyst for that decision making process May it lead them to eventually closing the loop on this tragic story by France Rivet

Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer He trusts no one Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree Hubbard leaves a new handwritten will It is an act that drags his adult children his black maid and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County s most notorious citizens just three years earlier br The second will raises far more questions than it answers Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly And what does it all have to do with a piece of land once known as Sycamore Row, In Chemistry Imagined Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmann in a unique collaboration with artist Vivian Torrence reveals the creative and humanistic sparks that drive science in general and chemistry in particular A series of thirty field color painted collages paired with short essays personal commentary and poems evokes the magic of this usually inaccessible field its historical roots the richness of modern chemical activities and the mysterious confluences of science and art Showing the general reader how science permeates daily life Hoffmann stresses the social cultural literary and psychological contexts of chemistry With delicate surreal images Torrence explores the highly visual nature and the intellectual essence of chemistry the way chemists think and the way they formulate their questions Chemistry Imagined discusses chemical discoveries processes and personalities in an unusually humanistic manner Perusing the contents a reader finds the first drafts of the periodic table of elements likened to revisions of a William Blake poem the chemical reasons behind the success of Chinese folk medicine a poem about scanning tunneling microscopy similarities between molecules and musical instruments and a meditation on why it is that scientists supposediy discover but artists create The general public along with scientists and artists will find that this celebration of how molecular science fits into world culture is surprising compelling and poignantly beautiful Torrence s provocative images and Hoffmann s perceptions of modern and ancient chemistry shape an illuminating collage of a central science, Like most gentiles in Nazi occupied Paris architect Lucien Bernard has little empathy for the Jews So when a wealthy industrialist offers him a large sum of money to devise secret hiding places for Jews Lucien struggles with the choice of risking his life for a cause he doesn t really believe in Ultimately he can t resist the challenge and begins designing expertly concealed hiding spaces behind a painting within a column or inside a drainpipe detecting possibilities invisible to the average eye But when one of his clever hiding spaces fails horribly and the immense suffering of Jews becomes incredibly personal he can no longer deny reality br br Written by an expert whose knowledge imbues every page this story becomes more gripping with every life the architect tries to save br, In Being and Time Heidegger gives an account of the distinctive features of human existence in an attempt to answer the question of the meaning of being He finds that underlying all of these features is what he calls original time In this clear and straightforward introduction to the text Paul Gorner takes the reader through the work examining its detail and explaining the sometimes difficult language which Heidegger uses The topics which he covers include being in the world being with thrownness and projection truth authenticity time and being and historicity His book makes Being and Time accessible to students in a way that conveys the essence of Heidegger s project and remains true to what is distinctive about his thinking
