Arthur Conan Doyle (1859 - 1930) was an English writer best known for his detective stories about Sherlock Holmes. Intended as a sincere an attempt to describe the behavior of Great Britain during the Boer War, \"The War in South Africa\" contains the author\'s thoughts as a person who was a part of the events.

Philosophers are familiar with the words of Bertrand Russell, that philosophy takes neutral field between science and theology. Many researchers are trying to actualize this position.
But we have to keep in mind that many of the scientific and philosophical concepts are grasped intuitively. For example, there is the concept of gravitation.
How to understand it? After much deliberation we have to grasp the basic - \"all bodies are attracted to each other.\" But the question \"why\" is often left unanswered.
Mechanism of the process and nature of the forces, involved in it, are not clear. They say that there is the gravitational field, but they cannot \"catch\" the carriers of this field \"gravitons\".
The same can be asked - what is hidden behind the concepts of \"God\", \"Objective.

It wasn\'t by chance that the Russian Empire collapsed in 1917, and nor was it the case with the Soviet Union. In both cases a powerful external force initiated Russia\'s falling apart using villains and fools, who completely destroyed their own country for money and attractive promises.
The history of this great catastrophe still holds many mysteries, and there are much more questions than answers here. Germany, which is still blamed for it, was not more than a tool and fell a victim to its own revolution afterwards.
February 1917 - this is when the Russian catastrophe of the 20th century started, and we paid too high a price to overcome the damage. However, as soon as we forgot how Russia\'s geopolitical enemies had destroyed our country, disintegration and chaos came back.

\'A past more dramatic than Chekhov, more tragic than Tolstoy and more romantic than Pasternak\'\nBetween the first revolution in February 1917 and Lenin\'s Bolshevik coup in October, Petrograd (the former St Petersburg) was in turmoil. Foreign visitors who filled hotels, bars and embassies were acutely aware of the chaos breaking out on their doorsteps.
Among them were journalists, diplomats, businessmen, governesses and volunteer nurses. Many kept diaries and wrote letters home: from an English nurse who had already survived the sinking of the Titanic; to the black valet of the US Ambassador, far from his native Deep South; to suffragette leader Emmeline Pankhurst, who had come to Petrograd to inspect the indomitable Women\'s Death Battalion led by Maria Bochkareva.

Shostakovich\'s Seventh Symphony was first played in the city of its birth on 9 August, 1942. There has never been a first performance to match it.
Pray God, there never will be again. Almost a year earlier, the Germans had begun their blockade of the city.
Already many thousands had died of their wounds, the cold, and most of all, starvation. The assembled musicians - scrounged from frontline units and military bands, for only twenty of the orchestra\'s 100 players had survived - were so hungry, many feared they\'d be too weak to play the score right through.
In these, the darkest days of the Second World War, the music and the defiance it inspired provided a rare beacon of light for the watching world. Setting the composition of Shostakovich\'s most famous work against the tragic canvas.

A crucial new guide to one of the most urgent political phenomena of our time: the rise of national populism.\nAcross the West, there is a rising tide of people who feel excluded, alienated from mainstream politics, and increasingly hostile towards minorities, immigrants and neo-liberal economics.
Many of these voters are turning to national populist movements, which have begun to change the face of Western liberal democracy, from the United States to France, Austria to the UK.\nThis radical turn, we are told, is a last howl of rage from an aging electorate on the verge of extinction.
Their leaders are fascistic and their politics anti-democratic; their existence a side-show to liberal democracy. But this version of events, as Roger Eatwell and Matthew Goodwin show, could not be further.

With his trademark compassion and erudition, Dr Oliver Sacks examines the power of music through the individual experiences of patients, musicians, and everyday people. Among them: a surgeon who is struck by lightning and suddenly becomes obsessed with Chopin; people with \'amusia\', to whom a symphony sounds like the clattering of poets and pans; and a man whose memory spans only seven seconds - for everything but music.
Dr Sacks describes how music can animate people with Parkinson\'s disease who cannot otherwise move, give words to stroke patients who cannot otherwise speak, and calm and organize people who are deeply disoriented b Alzheimer\'s or schizophrenia.\nThis classic of neurology is a book that alters our conception of who we are and how we function, and shows us an essential.

In Built, structural engineer Roma Agrawal takes a unique look at how construction has evolved from the mud huts of our ancestors to skyscrapers of steel that reach hundreds of metres into the sky. She unearths how engineers have tunnelled through kilometres of solid mountains; how they\'ve bridged across the widest and deepest of rivers, and tamed Nature\'s precious and elusive - water resources. She tells vivid tales of the visionaries who created the groundbreaking materials in the Pantheon\'s record-holding concrete dome and the frame of the record-breaking Eiffel Tower. Through the lens of an engineer, Roma examines tragedies like the collapse of the Quebec Bridge, highlighting the precarious task of ensuring people\'s safety they hold at every step.

In the latter half of the 19th century, in the verdant countryside near Aix-en-Provence, Paul Cezanne (1839-1906), busily plied his brush to landscapes and still lifes that would become anchors of modern art. With compact, intense dabs of paint and bold new approaches to light and space, he mediated the way from Impressionism to the defining movements of the early 20th century and became, in the words of both Matisse and Picasso, \"father of us all.
\"\nThis fresh artist introduction selects key works from Cezanne\'s oeuvre to understand his development, innovation, and crucial influence on modern art. From compositions of fruits and pears to scenes of outdoor bathers, we trace his experimentation with color, perspective, and texture to evoke \"a harmony parallel to Nature,\" as well as.

Born in 1979 in Leszno, Paulina Otylie Surys is a Polish fashion photographer based in London, UK. Influenced by her study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Poland, she started to experiment with the photographic medium working on Polaroids, manipulating and hand-colouring them.

Surys\' practice is inspired by an old and traditional form of colourizations that introduces limited colour into a black-and-white.
