This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1846 Excerpt: ...Isa. lir. 16, 'the smith that bloweth the coal in the fire, ' HvSpaxus, prunas. From the foregoing analysis it appears that the word JlTTIJ often means coals thoroughly ignited; but DHD, coal before being ignited. There are several instances in which the word 'coal' in our version is an improper translation. 1 Kings, xix. 6, D'BVI njJJ ' a cake baken on the coab, ' iyKpvtplas, subcinericius panis. here properly means a hot stone (a pavement, Esth. i. 6, and elsewhere! and D'BVI I1JJ7 properly mean small cakes baked under ashes--a common food to this day among the Orientals, especially when travelling bkead. t)5T1 is also a hot stone thrown into millc or broth in order to heat it (Gesenius). Another mis-translation occurs (Hab. iii. 5), ' burning coals went forth at his feet' in the margin 'burning diseases' (Deut. xxx 24). The Sept. varies widely; the Vulgate still more widely--'egredietur diabolus, ' which is, however, explained as pestis by the commentators. Another mis-translation is (Lam. iv. 8), 'Their visage is blacker than a coal;' margin, 'darker than blackness;' THIE'D "pTI, Mp aa&i-nv, super carbones. Another mis-translation occurs (Cant viii. 6), ' the coals thereof are cnals of fire;' t?N 'BCH iVBtin, irfplirrepa alrrris, irfpiirTtpa-mipos, Aid. ScflpoKfj mipSs, ut lampades ignis. A questionable translation occurs (Is. vi. 6), ' a live coal, ' ilBSI, tvBptuca trupos, cakvlus; but the Rabbis lender it ' coal.'-The instances of the word coal in the New Testament remain to be noticed: --(John xviii. 1R), ' afire of coals, ' iv6paKtd, ad prunas. The word here evidently means a mass of live charcoal (so Suid. lu/BpoKia TrepupaicTufVoi &v9pajca, who gives an adage which makes a plain difference---rty Titppan Qtbyav, els ayBpoKikv Wcnjj, ' which ...
This book sets out a framework for rethinking the three key areas of schooling that are most affected by technology's impact on education today: knowledge as curriculum, learning and pedagogy, and literacy across the curriculum. Carey Jewitt shows how all three are reshaped by the multimodal resources and facilities of new technologies, and points the way to rethinking teaching and learning in this environment.
It is a pleasure to write a foreword for Professor Tore Wessel-Berg's book, "Electromagnetic and Quantum Measurements: A Bitemporal Neoclassical Theory." This book appeals to me for several reasons. The most important is that, in this book, Wessel-Berg breaks from the pack. The distinguished astrophysicist Thomas Gold has written about the pressures on scientists to move in tight formation, to avoid having their legs nipped by the sheepdogs of science. This book demonstrates that Wessel-Berg is willing to take that risk. I confess that I do not sufficiently understand this book to be able to either agree or disagree with its thesis. Nevertheless, Wessel-Berg makes very cogent arguments for setting out on his journey. The basic equations of physics are indeed time-reversible. Our experience, that leads us to the concept of an "arrow of time," is derived from macro- scopic phenomena, not from fundamental microscopic phenomena. For this reason, it makes very good sense to explore the consequences of treating microscopic phenomena on the assumption that forward time and backward time are equal.
Scholarship of literature and the environment demonstrates myriad understandings of nature and culture. While some work in the field results in approaches that belong in the realm of cultural studies, other scholars have expanded the boundaries of ecocriticism to connect the practice more explicitly to disciplines such as the biological sciences, human geography, or philosophy. Even so, the field of ecocriticism has yet to clearly articulate its interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary nature.
