The aim of this paper is to render a detailed picture of the early formation of English fricatives from the Indo-European period till the threshold of Middle English with emphasis on the Germanic period. After presenting different theories of the Indo-European consonantal inventory, I discuss the two famous Germanic sound laws: Grimm s Law and Verner s Law. These sound changes have been debated for a long time, and their acceptance among scholars is not uniform at all. Following the chronological line of my discussion, the next step is a presentation of the fricative system of Proto-Germanic. To reconstruct the Proto-Germanic consonantal inventory, it is necessary to examine its dialects as well. I examine Gothic closely from this point of view, as I had the opportunity to study it in the course of my university studies. Thereafter I continue my discussion with the Old English fricative-system. The second part of my thesis is devoted to a central topic strongly debated among historical linguists: the status of voice. My aim is to reconsider the standpoint generally accepted with the help of Karl Luick s theorem, which has been ignored for a long time.
A faithful account of a businessman´s simple three-hour bus trip from a mountainside above the city to the far shimmering towers of Las Vegas. He had not been able to call a taxi; the bus seemed a good idea. This story is true-every incident being described as faithfully as one could render it. Detailed notes were made later on the evening of the journey (1) after relating the details to a group of friends shortly after I arrived at the Paris and (2) after re-telling the whole story to an expanded group of associates over dinner at the Bellagio that same day. 1.

From New York to Europe, the apartments of the nouveau riche to ancient French estates, Edith Wharton tells the story of Undine Spragg, a girl from a Midwestern town with unquenchable social aspirations. Though Undine is narcissistic, pampered, and incredibly selfish, she is a beguiling heroine whose marital initiation into New York high society from its trade-wealthy fringes is only the beginning of her relentless ambitions. Wharton weaves an elaborate plot that renders a detailed depiction of upper-class social behavior in the early 20th century. By using a character with inexorable greed in a novel of manners, she demonstrates some of the customs of a modern age and posits a surprising explanation for divorce and the social role of women, which still resonates for the modern audience today. 1.

With the bravura storytelling and pungent authenticity of detail she brought to her acclaimed Lymond Chronicles, Dorothy Dunnett, grande dame of the historical novel, presents The House of Niccolò series. The time is the 15th century, when intrepid merchants became the new knighthood of Europe. Among them, none is bolder or more cunning than Nicholas vander Poele of Bruges, the good-natured dyer´s apprentice who schemes and swashbuckles his way to the helm of a mercantile empire. The year is 1471. Within the circus of statecraft, where the lions of Burgundy, Cyprus, England, and Venice stalk and snarl, Nicholas wields a valued whip. Having wrested his little son Jordan from his estranged wife, Gelis, he embarks on the greatest business scheme of his life-- beginning with a journey to Iceland. But while Nicholas confronts merchant knights, polar bears, and the frozen volcanic wastelands of the North, a greater challenge awaits: the vengeful Gelis, whose secrets threaten to topple all Nicholas has achieved. Here is Dorothy Dunnett at her best. Robustly paced, prodigiously detailed, To Lie with Lions renders the quicksands of Renaissance politics as well as the turnings of the human soul, from love to hate and back.
New Testament scholars often claim that the interpretative key to Jesus´ pronouncement of the words egô eimi in the Gospel of John lies in the use of this phrase in the Septuagint of Isaiah to render the Hebrew expression ´anî hû´. While previous studies have paid particular attention to the New Testament usage of egô eimi, Catrin H. Williams sets this evidence within a broader framework by offering a detailed analysis of the interpretation of ´anî hû´ in biblical and Jewish traditions. She examines the role of ´anî hû´ as a succinct expression of God´s claim to exclusiveness in the Song of Moses and the poetry of Deutero-Isaiah, and attempts to reconstruct its later interpretative history from the substantial body of evidence preserved in the Aramaic Targumim and several midrashic traditions. Biblical ´anî hû´ declarations are cited by rabbinic authorities as proof-texts against a variety of heretical claims, particularly the ´two powers´ heresy, but new ´anî hû´ formulations, not necessarily confined to divine speeches, are also attested. In the concluding chapters Catrin H. Williams considers the role of ´anî hû´ when seeking to interpret Jesus´ utterance of the words egô eimi in Synoptic and Johannine traditions.
The presidency of Donald J. Trump is rather ordinary. Trump himself may be the most unusual, unorthodox and unconventional president the US has ever had. Yet, even with his extraordinary personality and approach to the job, his presidency is proving quite ordinary in its accomplishments and outcomes, both at home and abroad. Like most modern US presidents, the number and scope of Trump´s achievements are rather meager. Despite dramatic claims to a revolution in US politics, Trump simply has not achieved very much. Trump´s few policy achievements are also mostly mainstream Republican ones rather than the radical, anti-establishment, swamp-draining changes promised on the campaign trail. The populist insurgent who ran against Washington has followed a policy agenda largely in tune with conservative Republican traditions. The Ordinary Presidency of Donald J. Trump provides a detailed explanation for the discrepancy between Trump´s extraordinary approach and the relative mediocrity of his achievements. Ironically, it is precisely Trump´s extraordinariness as president that has helped render his presidency ordinary.
The Viking Method uses Svava´s strong mental practices inspired by her Icelandic upbringing to help the reader build the lean, powerful and toned physique they desire.

It´s about three core pillars: thinking like a Viking, training like a Viking and eating like a Viking. Svava introduces these pillars early on in the book - along with mantras for each pillar which are connected to empowerment, mental strength and internal validation over counting calories. The book features information on eating and exercising for your hormones, detailed workout routines based around body-weight exercises illustrated with photographs, and a selection of delicious Scandi-inspired recipes such as Thor-red Salmon and Icelandic Lamb Stew.
Orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) is a method of digital modulation in which a signal is split into several narrowband channels at different frequencies. CDMA is a form of multiplexing, which allows numerous signals to occupy a single transmission channel, optimising the use of available bandwidth. Multiplexing is sending multiple signals or streams of information on a carrier at the same time in the form of a single, complex signal and then recovering the separate signals at the receiving end. Multi-Carrier (MC) CDMA is a combined technique of Direct Sequence (DS) CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) and OFDM techniques. It applies spreading sequences in the frequency domain. Wireless communications has witnessed a tremendous growth during the past decade and further spectacular enabling technology advances are expected in an effort to render ubiquitous wireless connectivity a reality. This technical in-depth book is unique in its detailed exposure of OFDM, MIMO-OFDM and MC-CDMA. A further attraction of the joint treatment of these topics is that it allows the reader to view their design trade-offs in a comparative context. Divided into three main parts: Part I provides a detailed exposure of OFDM designed for employment in various applications Part II is another design alternative applicable in the context of OFDM systems where the channel quality fluctuations observed are averaged out with the aid of frequency-domain spreading codes, which leads to the concept of MC-CDMA Part III discusses how to employ multiple antennas at the base station for the sake of supporting multiple users in the uplink * Portrays the entire body of knowledge currently available on OFDM * Provides the first complete treatment of OFDM, MIMO(Multiple Input Multiple Output)-OFDM and MC-CDMA * Considers the benefits of channel coding and space time coding in the context of various application examples and features numerous complete system design examples * Converts the lessons of Shannon´s information theory into design principles applicable to practical wireless systems * Combines the benefits of a textbook with a research monograph where the depth of discussions progressively increase throughout the book This all-encompassing self-contained treatment will appeal to researchers, postgraduate students and academics, practising research and development engineers working for wireless communications and computer networking companies and senior undergraduate students and technical managers.
