  • В.Путин.Выступление на Мюнхенской конференции.Part 1 Speech and the Following Discussion at the Munich Conference on Security Policy.Part 1 February 10, 2007 Munich Выступление и дискуссия на Мюнхенской конференции по вопросам политики безопасности.Part 1 10 февраля 2007 года Мюнхен VLADIMIR PUTIN: Thank you very much dear Madam Federal Chancellor, Mr Teltschik, ladies and gentlemen! I am truly grateful to be invited to such a representative conference that has assembled politicians, military officials, entrepreneurs and experts from more than 40 nations. This conferences structure allows me to avoid excessive politeness and the need to speak in roundabout, pleasant but empty diplomatic terms. This conferences format will allow me to say what I really think about international security problems. And if my comments seem unduly polemical, pointed or inexact to our colleagues, then I would ask you not to get angry with me. After all, this is only a conference. And I hope that after the first two or three minutes of my speech Mr Teltschik will not turn on the red light over there. Therefore. It is well known that international security comprises much more than issues relating to military and political stability. It involves the stability of the global economy, overcoming poverty, economic security and developing a dialogue between civilisations. This universal, indivisible character of security is expressed as the basic principle that security for one is security for all. As Franklin D. Roosevelt said during the first few days ...

  • Christopher Hitchens and Tony Jones 2 of 11 , 06 October 2009 10:00 If there were any doubts about writer and general provocateur Christopher Hitchens ability to pull a crowd, they were entirely dispelled by the sold-out opening night of the first ever Festival of Dangerous Ideas.

  • XBOX's Kakuto Chojin controversial character & soundtrack This is Kakuto Choujin a fighting game developped by the japanese studio Dream Factory (Tobal, Ehrgeiz, The Bouncer, UFC Tapout 2, Fighting Beauty Wulong, Crimson Tear or Bleach on the PS2) and released by Microsoft in Japan and the US. The problem with this game, is that it contains an african/arabic muai thai fighter named Asad which fights in an arabic themed ring and which background music contains samples of the arabic term "Allah Akbar" (God is great). In fear of the polemic, Microsoft decided on february 2003 to call back all the Kakuto Chojin discs and cancelled the european release of the game. I don't understand why Microsoft has not released an edited version of the game after getting out this level! When you look at the videos for Kakuto Chojin (there is a combos video on youtube), it seems to be a good fighting game. And this is not the first time that somebody used islamic chants, there is a Jinguji Saburo episode on the first PlayStation which uses islamic call for prayers in it's opening (you can also find it on Youtube). Somethimes, i can't understand some stupid choices coming from misunderstanding of the islamic religion (adding a post 9/11 troma).
  • 3. Credible Employment Milton (ENGL 220) This lecture examines the role and meanings of the word vocation in Milton's life-long meditation on (and concern for) what it means to be chosen by God. Milton's profound anxiety in the years following his graduation from Cambridge regarding his poetic career and, more specifically, his status as a Christian poet selected by God for greatness is outlined. The topic is traced through Milton's polemical treatise The Reason of Church Government, the poem "Ad Patrem," and the author's correspondence. Particular emphasis is placed on Milton's interpretations of the parable of the talents and the parable of the workers in the vineyard. Substantial context on the nature of election and salvation is supplied from the writings of John Calvin and Max Weber. Complete course materials are available at the Open Yale Courses website: open.yale.edu This course was recorded in Fall 2007.

  • GRE/-\T R0CK /\/ R0|_|_ $\/\/!N|)|_E 1 1980 How Malcolm McLaren created the *** Pistols and conned the record industry out of a million quid. Julien Temple's revisionist but fascinating film about the rise of punk The urge to self-mythologise is written into rock's DNA and in 1978 the *** Pistols' story - who did what for whom, and why - was still up for grabs. The Great Rock 'N' Roll Swindle is manager Malcolm McLaren's attempt to write himself into history as the band's creator, manipulator and ideologue while stealing back from the music industry what he maintained it had stolen from rock 'n' roll. It is, for all its faults, one of the most fascinating rock movies ever made. It's candid, inaccurate, partisan and polemical. Director Julien Temple, a film student in 1977 and friend of the band, sold the project to McLaren but inadvertently ended up as his stooge. Johnny Rotten refused to participate, Sid Vicious was dead and even among loyalists there were those who questioned the wisdom of Paul Cook and Steve Jones' collaborations with exiled con Ronnie Biggs, who turned out to be neither the heroic bandit McLaren had hoped for, nor a very effective frontman. Like the Pistols' one album proper, 'Never Mind The Bollocks', the film is both a statement and its own commentary - celebrating and satirising the group while acknowledging that 'No Future' referred more to the band than it did to Britain. The film's episodic structure is built around McLaren's Embezzler - a Brian Epstein / Larry Parnes-style Svengali - as ...
