Excerpt from The Letters of Hart Crane, 1916-1932 But far more compelling than distance or propriety as the domi nant force behind Crane´s prolific composition of letters was an emotional impulse which drove him to discharge so much expres sive energy in a non-poetic form: his acquisitive need for sympathy, pity, understanding, affection a need accompanied by the be lief that these responses could be evoked with a persuasive explana tion in words. Let us not confuse this poignant situation with dis honesty or a huckster´s fraudulency. Crane was, after all, a poet to whom language was paramount. The outcome was that even those of his letters which had been intended as geographical bridges, or as duties, speedily found themselves converted into detailed and nu inhibited recitations and exhortations. Examining the letters to his mother in this light, to choose one instance, we can-understand why, despite the profound mutual misunderstanding of which each was aware, Crane persisted in alternately cajoling, threatening, and in forming a basically-unresponsive correspondent.

Discover how to make amazing paper structures in just one day with this easy to use guide! Did you know that you can make a beautiful flower or animals out of one single sheet of paper without using glue? That´s what´s amazing about origami, the art of paper folding. By following a pattern of folds, you can create incredibly beautiful paper sculptures. At the beginning of this book, you will start with a simple sheet of paper. You will then fold your way through simple folds. As you do, you will familiarize yourself with their names and shapes. Moving from there, you will create traditional origami bases. After that, you will make simple origami models. Then finally, you will end up making more challenging origami sculptures. This book contains proven steps and strategies on how to become a truly great origami artist. Learn how to make the Boat, Fish, Crane and the Horse. These are a few of the many origami figures that you will learn to make simply by folding paper in a particular pattern. Detailed instructions are provided inside each chapter. What makes origami so great is its versatility. As an art form, origami is not limited in its form or function. There are many different patterns for creating the same figure. You can choose a simple pattern or a more elaborate pattern depending on your skill level or tastes. You can use a simple color paper or an intricate design. You can even use plain white copy paper. You can even experiment and make the same model using different papers until you find the one that looks best to you. Life does get hectic, but creating an origami figure doesn´t take long.

Working with Dynamic Crop Models: Methods, Tools and Examples for Agriculture and Environment , 3e, is a complete guide to working with dynamic system models, with emphasis on models in agronomy and environmental science. The introductory section presents the foundational information for the book including the basics of system models, simulation, the R programming language, and the statistical notions necessary for working with system models. The most important methods of working with dynamic system models, namely uncertainty and sensitivity analysis, model calibration (frequentist and Bayesian), model evaluation, and data assimilation are all treated in detail, in individual chapters. New chapters cover the use of multi-model ensembles, the creation of metamodels that emulate the more complex dynamic system models, the combination of genetic and environmental information in gene-based crop models, and the use of dynamic system models to aid in sampling. The book emphasizes both understanding and practical implementation of the methods that are covered. Each chapter simply and clearly explains the underlying principles and assumptions of each method that is presented, with numerous examples and illustrations. R code for applying the methods is given throughout. This code is designed so that it can be adapted relatively easily to new problems. An expanded introductory section presents the basics of dynamic system modeling, with numerous examples from multiple fields, plus chapters on numerical simulation, statistics for modelers, and the R language. Covers in detail the basic methods: uncertainty and sensitivity analysis, model calibration (both frequentist and Bayesian), model evaluation, and data assimilation. Every method chapter has numerous examples of applications based on real problems, as well as detailed instructions for applying the methods to new problems using R. Each chapter has multiple exercises for self-testing or for classroom use. An R package with much of the code from the book can be freely downloaded from the CRAN package repository.
Northern Ireland´s capital, Belfast, nestles in a semicircle of hills, where the River Lagan enters Belfast Lough. About a third of the population of Northern Ireland live here. The Titanic was built here and the dock where that was done has been preserved, along with the cranes and equipment used. Even the offices where the ship was designed remain as they were. Then there is County Antrim, which is beautiful. Its coast is dotted with beaches and rocky inlets. Inland there are nine glens, which descend to the sea. In addition to wonderful scenery, with forests, rivers and waterfalls, the landscape is dominated by spectacular ruins of fortresses built by Gaelic chieftains and Norman invaders. The area called Cityside includes at its core the only intact medieval walled city in Ireland or the British Isles. Facing it is the Waterside area. Saint Columba founded a monastery here in 546. Take a walk along the walls of the medieval city. Criss-crossed by mountains, moorland and inland waters, the Sperrins has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. What makes it so wonderful is that it is so peaceful. Tyrone is the largest county in the North yet has the smallest population. There are also nature trails and forest parks to explore. From the 18th to the last century, a huge number of its people left to seek new lives in North America and there are many places closely associated with them - ancestral family homes of US Presidents and other prominent figures, such as the Mellons, who founded Pittsburgh, Davy Crockett, President Woodrow Wilson and Ulysses S. Grant. Next comes County Down, where St. Patrick settled. He landed on the shore of Strangford Lough in 442 AD and is believed to be buried at Downpatrick. All of the hotels and places to eat are detailed as well, plus the hikes, walking tours, bike trips, boat tours and more. Entertainment, shopping, how to get around, sightseeing and more are described as well. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Nicholas Patrella.
