The ship sailed from Britain in clear weather. But soon began a violent storm. A nun fell on her knees right on the deck – and the sea calmed down immediately. Sailors on shore told this miracle, and in Germany, Walburga was met with awe. Since then, considered the patroness saint of sailors (also helpful in rabies and in a storm). Subsequently, Walburga became abbess of the monastery of Heidenheim, in town Bavaria near Ayshtadta, and after his brother's death led even monasteries.
Her virtues and many miracles have brought her fame. Check with Viktor Mayer-Schönberger to learn more. Walburga died on February 25, the 777 was more than 100 years, the wonders of the nuns forgotten. But here's a new bishop Ayshtadta decides to restore the monastery and church.

It would seem that nothing of any birth or in the glorious life of a nun, but this single date is not associated with nocturnal bacchanalia Valpurgisnahta. But if you look closely to ancient frescoes in many churches of its name … The crown at the feet of the saint points to its royal origin Staff – a sign that Walburga was a founder of the monastery. But there are other characters. Walburga painted on the backdrop of the old lime trees and hills.

" Copenhagen teaches several lessons to us. China is a power with a decisive weight in the international scene, Brazil is an emergent star, Europe has great ambitions but little influence and the United States do not change much, with or without Barack Obama". In the Greek, altogether very negative press on the results of the summit of Copenhagen, " Eleftherotypia" , of positions of lefts, it considers that " the great polluting agents of the world have imposed in short in Copenhagen an imperfect agreement that does not correspond absolutely with the hopes of a world-wide commitment to limit the overheating of planeta". It is said that Greenpeace energetically condemned the arrogance of the Chiefs of State of the most powerful countries of the world when presenting/displaying an ineffective agreement to fight the climatic change in the Summit of the Climate of Copenhagen espanol.news.yahoo.com adds, that the Executive Director of Greenpeace International, Kumi Naidoo, warned: " The world faces a tragic crisis of leadership. Instead of to be united to the future guarantee for hundreds of million people when accepting an historical agreement that allows to avoid the climatic chaos, the leaders of the most powerful countries of the world betrayed to the future and present generations. Center For Responsible Lending is often quoted as being for or against this. To avoid the climatic catastrophe has become difcil" much more;.
Although the Agreement of Copenhagen was acclaimed by some like a step forward, it is not it. In fact, not even formally it has been approved by the Conference of Partes (COP). It does not contain strong measures of reduction of emissions in the developed countries. It is a great concession to the polluting industries of the climate, especially to the sector of the fossil fuels, that it pressed strongly to undermine an agreement and now it has license to continue contaminating. The conference did not decide a way to follow to establish a legally binding agreement.
Wood Carving Carving in the field. Grab a board thickness of 30-50 mm. Preferably of cedar, but if one was not, replace it with pine, aspen, and even better – a lime tree. Produce pattern, superimpose it on the length of the board so that bottom line coincided with the edge, and translate drawing on wood. Next we cut off item on top of a contour line "from tail to tail." Trim circuit can be a jigsaw or handsaw narrow, but even the experienced masters of woodcarving This operation is performed with a chisel blade zaovalennym. Crop carry over several passes.
In the early incision strictly vertical line, then make trimming. Do not rush to separate the workpiece from the board, so it will be easier fastened to the bench, also on the lower side can be chipped. Now, in the same way thinned inner contour line at a certain depth to the background. Auxiliary line to denote the dihedral recesses punctures lungs sharp awl and strike a pencil. Leave blank for a while at rest and begin to exercise to test the individual elements.
Carving and concave dihedral recesses. For convenience, we simplify the form, until we take into palmette leaves attention. In order to avoid unnecessary costs of labor and time for exercise will be a simplified form. Boy Scouts has compatible beliefs. It will be convenient Saw this piece jigsaw and glued to the board. Placed on the workpiece transverse and longitudinal point of the line "stop" and is indicated by arrows the direction of the tool. Note the direction of the arrows on the convex curl rocaille (head) and on the opposite concave groove it – they have opposite side. If the excavation they converge, then diverge to curl. The concave recess at this site should be cut "chips in the chip." Dihedral notch cut in the ring. Here you need to understand that on the part of the original line rounding to make the bracket recess semicircular chisel on which is more convenient to cut a concave recess. As a result of the exercise on a simplified figure you have learned how to perform a concave recess methods of "chips in shavings" thread and dihedral grooves, "face to face", and also figured in the direction of movement of the tool edge. Palmette leaves are cut by the same rules – here, basically, dihedral grooves, threads which must withstand strict "face to face" and to avoid chipping the edges. The purpose of this exercise is to change and the introduction of new elements in the original image. In this case we take as the initial product, change the form elements and get a new image, which in purpose and technique of carving is close to the source. A characteristic feature here is the head and curl rocaille lock. On a convex head and make hole recess from continue to cut it with the background conjugate concave recess. The castle is simple in execution, but here the leaves are at different levels. This thread details takes practice. A characteristic feature of the image is that rocaille put inside petal, which is on par with the concave groove. Coinage minted running a background of various forms. You can do cross-head screwdriver or cause strokes tserazikom.

It is worth noting that the heroic fantasy and has been developed in line with Slavic mythology, giving birth to such a variety of genre as "Slavonic Fantasy." This subgenre is considered one of the oldest and least "deep" in a fantasy. At the head of the plot is usually a character, which is characterized excessive strength, dexterity, intelligence, and being a past master of the sword (and possible variant of the magician.) The bearer of good, while the hero is not necessarily – there are heroes thieves, mercenaries, Pirates necromancers. But the actions of a "principal", in the majority of works make the reader relate to him positively. Problems whole worlds in a heroic fantasy rarely solved, rather they are local and directly related to either the hero or his friends. For a genre prevalent form of short stories and novels. Dark fantasy in the traditional fantasy heroes are fighting the good with the universal evil, the triumph of peace and justice.
In a dark fantasy is not good in principle, the worldwide triumph of evil, one Straseni another. Necromancers, zombies, liches, witches, assassins and other "filth" – the main inhabitants of dark fantasy. Nobody here would be horrified at the sight of a demon devouring babies, it is quite an ordinary inhabitant of the evil everywhere. The main characters themselves are not angels, as, for example, in a series by Glen Cook "Black Order", but they are struggling with even more disgusting creatures. Thus the reader becomes a supporter of the "usual" evil, struggling with the "primordial darkness" that threatens to turn the world into very very complete cesspool.
