Иллюзия жизни

Автор: Михаил Черненок

«Тойота» догорала в березовом подлеске за кладбищенской оградой. Передние дверцы автомашины с обеих сторон были распахнуты, а заднюю часть ее разворотило на две половины, видимо, взорвавшимися в топливном баке парами бензина. За рулем автомобиля скрючился в неестественной позе обугленный труп… Такую безрадостную картину увидели участники следственно-оперативной группы во главе с районным прокурором Антоном Бирюковым, приехавшие к месту происшествия.

Doctor Who: A History of the Universe in 100 Objects

Doctor Who: A History of the Universe in 100 Objects

Автор: James Goss, Steve Tribe

Every object tells a story. From ancient urns and medieval flasks to sonic screwdrivers and glass Daleks, these 100 objects tell the story of the entire universe, and the most important man in it: the Doctor. Each item has a unique tale of its own, whether it’s a fob watch at the onset of the Great War or a carrot growing on the first human colony on Mars. Taken together, they tell of empires rising and falling, wars won and lost, and planets destroyed and reborn. Within these pages lie hidden histories of Time Lords and Daleks, the legend of the Loch Ness Monster, the plot to steal the Mona Lisa and the story of Shakespeare’s lost play. You’ll find illustrated guides to invisible creatures, the secret origins of the internet, and how to speak Mechanoid. A History of the Universe in 100 Objects is an indispensable guide to the most important items that have ever existed, or that are yet to exist.

SPATIAL PLANNING AND ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT IN INDONESIA

SPATIAL PLANNING AND ENVIRONMENTAL ASSESSMENT IN INDONESIA

Автор: Djoko Suroso

The Government of Indonesia has attempted to implement sustainable development since the 1970s through various strategies, including spatial planning and Environmental Impact Assessment. Nevertheless, the strong economic performance that has characterised Indonesia for most of this period, has been achieved at the cost of serious environmental degradation and social problems. It is clear that there is an urgent need for further review of the instruments through which environmental concerns are integrated into resource use decisions. The examination of the spatial planning system in Indonesia reveals a series of inadequacies in terms of its ability to support sustainable development. The 1992 Spatial Use Management Act (SUMA) and its implementing regulations contain strong environmental commitment. However, as it only governs spatial planning in general it is inadequate for dealing with planning at local levels where decisions involving major environmental impacts…

Walt Disney once said of Marc Davis, «Marc can do story, he can do character, he can animate, he can design shows for me. All I have to do is tell him what I want and it’s there! He’s my Renaissance man.» As such, Davis touched nearly every aspect of The Walt Disney Company during his tenure. He began as an animator, whose supporting work on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and Bambi inspired Walt to promote him to full animator. In the ensuing years, Davis breathed life into a bevy of iconic Disney characters, including Cinderella, Alice (in Wonderland), Tinker Bell, Maleficent, and Cruella De Vil. Then, in 1962, Walt Disney transferred the versatile Davis to the Imagineering department to help plan and design attractions for Disneyland and the 1964 65 New York World’s Fair. While at Imagineering, Davis conceived of designs for such classic attractions as Jungle Cruise, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Haunted Mansion. As Davis had so many talents and hats, it is only fitting…
