Rudaki’s poetry, modeled on the Arabic rules of prosody that without exception had been applied to Persian, already points ahead to many of the characteristic features of later Persian poetry. The imagery in particular is sophisticated, although when compared with the mannered writing of subsequent times his verse was considered sadly simple. From the 10th century onward, Persian poems were written at almost every court in the Iranian areas, sometimes in dialectical variants (for example, in Tabarestani dialect at the Zeyarid court) Apocalypses - Prophecies, Cults & Millennial Beliefs through the Ages (USA) (Hardback) - Common.

In this technique, the surfaces of utilitarian metallic objects (candlesticks, ewers, basins, kettles, and so forth) were engraved, and then silver was inlaid in the cut-out areas to make the decorative design more clearly visible.

One theory suggests that the Aryan people migrated into this area. Aryan religious texts and human remains in Mohenjo-Daro suggest that the Aryans may have violently entered the area, killing its inhabitants and burning the cities. However, another theory supported by more recent evidence suggests that this civilization may have begun to decline before the Aryans arrived A History of the Modern World.

Not that those events were in the least extraordinary. What to my backward glance seems startling and a little awful is their punctualness and inevitability. Exactly at a quarter to twelve he appeared under the lofty portal of the H tel de Louvre, with his fresh face, his ill-fitting grey suit, and enveloped in his own sympathetic atmosphere.

During th e Cold War, the Soviet Union promoted its political-economic system to newly free former colonies as a path to industrializing within a generation.� Mutually Assured Destruction was a real threat, and the Cuban Missile Crisis is the closest that humanity has yet come to a nuclear war .� I doubt that John Kennedy�s murder will ever be solved, but my policeman friend, who helped me spring my partner from jail, who knew of Oswald�s involvement in the operation that got John Kennedy killed, believed that Kennedy was killed because he began negotiating world peace. [878] � My friend�s account of Oswald�s involvement took on a new level of credibility with the declassification of the Operation Northwoods documents, and a recent book on the John Kennedy assassination, endorsed by Robert Kennedy Jr., also makes the case that John Kennedy was murdered because he was attempting to negotiate the Cold War's end after realizing how close the USA came to igniting a nuclear war. [879] The corporate order that rebranded industrial waste as �medicine� or that overthrew the Iranian and Guatemalan governments probably resided some levels below the GCs in Earth�s power structure.� The connections between them will have almost no publicly available documentation, and what might become public will always have its authenticity debated, and again, I will leave those issues behind for now and focus on more publicly known issues of history and science.� Several ene rgy concepts are important for understanding the health and trajectory of economies, and some key ones are: The total energy available for exploitation; For the fi rst concept presented above, for conventional renewable energy sources, they are replenished by sunlight or radiation from Earth�s interior; one is fusion, and the other is fission.� For so-called non-renewable energy sources, such as hydrocarbons and fissile materials, they are either renewed on timescales so vast that they are effectively non-renewable for humans (such as hydrocarbons ), or are �renewed� by the fusion processes in stars (fissile materials), so could only be renewed with new planetary formation. �In mainstream thought, the currently non-renewable energy resources are primarily hydrocarbons (petroleum, coal, and natural gas) and uranium.� Much of the Peak Oil debate centers around the definition of oil.� What has been called oil for the past 150 years is today called conventional oil .� It is the oil formed by the previously described geological processes, and can be mined by drilling wells and extracting it with the conventional methods that have been used since the beginning, and new techniques are periodically invented to increase the rate and total extraction.� For conventional oil, humanity has unearthed about 1.1 trillion barrels since 1859, and about 1.2 trillion remained as of 2014.� Production of conventional oil peaked in 2006 at 25 billion barrels per year and has declined since then.� At current production rates, conventional oil will be completely depleted in less than 50 years.� About another five billion barrels per year are called unconventional oil, which is called heavy oil, extra heavy oil, and oil sands.� Those unconventional oils comprise trillions more barrels, and total about 70% of Earth�s oil reserves and arguably more.� For fissile materials, primarily uranium, the peak may have already been reached by 2014, or it might be a few decades into the future .� For natural gas the situation is similar, in that the peak may have already been reached, or it is only a few decades into the future at most.� For c oal, peak extraction may also be only a few decades into the future.� Peak extraction usually occurs when about half of the recoverable energy resource has been mined.� In summary, the energy resources that have powered the Industrial Revolution are all on their way to largely vanishing in this century.� The only resources with seeming viability past this century are coal and unconventional oil, which brings us to the second concept: EROI The Gatherings For The Conquest Of Ireland: Book Two.
