This video demonstrates step-by-step the procedure for achieving a thorough, satisfying portrait likeness in a single sitting.

A portrait is a painting, photograph, sculpture, or other artistic representation of a person, in which the face and its expression is predominant. The intent is to display the likeness, personality, and even the mood of the person. For this reason, in photography a portrait is generally not a snapshot, but a composed image of a person in a still position. A portrait often shows a person looking directly at the painter or photographer, in order to most successfully engage the subject with the viewer.

The Sonics that Wailers bassist Buck Ormsby took into a small studio and unleashed on the world show a live band at the peak of its power, ready to mow down the competition without even blinking twice. Their debut long-player (originally issued on the Etiquette imprint) is reprised here with new liner notes by Norton prexy Miriam Linna in the original mono. The flame-throwing hits of "The Witch," "Psycho," "Boss Hoss," and "Strychnine" are aboard, along with versions of "Do You Love Me," "Dirty Robber," "Have Love Will Travel," and "Walkin' the Dog" that are no less potent. This long-play vinyl reissue also boasts the addition of four bonus tracks: "Keep a Knockin'" (the original B-side of "The Witch") and three selections from an Etiquette Christmas album, "Don't Believe in Christmas," "The Village Idiot," and "Santa Claus." Another important chunk of Seattle rock & roll history.

The manuscript was finely tuned by Kerry Moran and proofread by several friends. Please excuse the omission of a detailed glossary; if necessary, the reader can refer to Rinpoche's earlier books. We would especially like to thank Rinpoche for offering such enlightened teachings and for allowing the book to be published.

Empires of the Sea: The Siege of Malta, the Battle of Lepanto, and the Contest for the Center of the World (Audiobook) by Roger Crowley and John Lee
English | 2008 | ISBN: 1400157226 | 11 hr. | MP3 64 kbps | 314 MB

Empires of the Sea tells the story of the fifty-year world war between Islam and Christianity for the Mediterranean: one of the fiercest and most influential contests in European history. It traces events from the appearance on the world stage of Suleiman the Magnificent—the legendary ruler of the Ottoman Empire—through "the years of devastation" when it seemed possible that Islam might master the whole sea to the final brief flourishing of a united Christendom in 1571.

The Four Faces of Nuclear Terrorism is the result of a two-year study by the Monterey Institute's Center for Nonproliferation Studies of the motivations and capabilities of terrorist organizations to carry out devastating attacks using stolen nuclear weapons, to construct and detonate crude nuclear weapons known as improvised nuclear devices (INDs), to release radiation by attacking or sabotaging nuclear facilities, and to build and use radiological weapons or "dirty bombs." These "four faces" of nuclear terrorism are real threats that current U.S. policy fails to take into account. Because Washington has no guidelines for directing scarce resources to where they would have the greatest impact, this book merits the earnest attention of policy makers and the public. As Senator Richard G. Lugar, Chair of the Foreign Relations Committee, and former Senator Sam Nunn of the Nuclear Threat Initiative, write in the foreword to the book, "This thought-provoking and well-researched book…should be read by policy makers and anyone interested in a better understanding of the threats we face today." Dr. Ferguson and Dr. Potter maintain that there is a greater likelihood today than any time in the past three decades that citizens will experience one of the four types of nuclear terrorism. They urge the United States and its international partners to take immediate steps to prevent the most catastrophic form of nuclear terrorism, detonation of nuclear weapons, and to reduce the consequences of the most likely, dispersal of radiation with dirty bombs. The book outlines the priority tasks necessary for the U.S. and other governments, and stresses the need to educate the public on the risks of radiation exposure and to help psychologically immunize citizens against fear of radiological attacks.

The best is, as is known, always to the end, or so at least so similar could be called the new edition of the flagship of Kontor Records.The Kontor Top of The Clubs has been one of the biggest dance music compilations in Germany for many years and is the issue for the release of Kontor Records, which has made the right feel for hip dance tracks from the current charts. In the current Kontor Top Of The Clubs - The Biggest Hits of the Year MMXVI is of course somewhat different, as this is all about the Top Tracks of the year 2016.

Having clocked up a multitude of miles in their tour van, the 2015 Group Of The Year (Australian Blues Music Awards) has not only developed a reputation as one of the hardest working bands in the country but has also picked up a swag of accolades along the way including Best Blues Album for their debut release Move Me (2013 SA Blues & Roots), Best Blues Artist (2014 South Australian Music Awards) and nominations for Song Of The Year (Hole In My Pocket, 2015 Australian Blues Music Awards) and Most Popular Blues/Roots Artist (2016 SAM Awards). Lazy Eye kicked 2016 off with a whirlwind trip across the South Pacific to the land where the Blues began. Upon reaching the quarter finals, the Hammond Organ Trio became the inaugural band to represent South Australia at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tennessee. Following the competition, the band played one show only at the legendary B.B. King’s Blues Club on Beal Street, a highlight of the trip, before heading home thoroughly grounded in the blues.
