By Rabbi Aryeh Wineman
The academics of Hasidism gave new existence to the literary culture of parable, a narrative that teaches a religious or ethical fact. In The Hasidic Parable, acclaimed writer Aryeh Wineman takes readers during the nice works of the hasidic storytellers. Telling parables, explains Rabbi Wineman, was once a method that the hasidic masters used to foster an intensive shift in brooding about God, the realm, and the values and norms of non secular lifestyles. even supposing those parables date again 2 hundred years or extra, they take care of ethical and spiritual issues and matters nonetheless appropriate this day. every one is observed via notes and remark by means of the writer that light up their ideological value and their old roots and history. those parables were culled from classical hasidic homiletic texts, selected due to their literary traits, their clarification of key thoughts within the hasidic world-view, and likewise due to what they are saying to us in regards to the conflicts and tensions accompanying Hasidism's emergence and progress.

Der Hydrospeicher ist ein Bauelement der Olhydraulik zur Aufnahme oder Abgabe von Hydraulikol unter Druck. Zur Energieaufnahme oder -abgabe im Hydrospeicher wird ein geeigneter Energietr ger, zumeist eine vorge spannte Gasflillung, herangezogen. Das Hydraulikol selbst ist infolge der sehr geringen Kompressibilit t als Energietr ger nicht geeignet. 1m all gemeinen sind der Energietr ger und das Hydraulikol durch ein Trennglied voneinander getrennt. Hydrospeicher finden in hydraulischen Anlagen Anwendung als Energiespei cher, als Feder- und als D mpferelement. Das vorliegende Buch beschr nkt sich auf den Hydrospeicher als Energiespeicher.Wenn der Hydrospeicher bei den anderen beiden Anwendungsbereichen strenggenommen auch einen Energiespeicher darstellt, so verlangt die Behandlung des Hydrospeichers als Feder- und als D mpferelement die Berucksichtigung der Massentr g heiten (Last, Trennglied, Hydraulikol) und der Reibungseffekte. Die the matische Beschr nkung bedeutet additionally, daB Anwendungsf lle, bei denen die se Faktoren von Bed"eutung sind, hier nicht n her behandelt werden. Der Titel "Hydrospeicher als Energiespeicher" bringt diese Beschr nkung zum Ausdruck. Dessenungeachtet sind in einen Sonderabschnitt des Literatur verzeichnisses Arbeiten aufgenommen, die den Hydrospeicher als Feder und als D mpferelement behandeln. Unter der genannten thematischen Beschr nkung will das vorliegende Buch mit den Anwendungsmoglichkeiten und Bauarten von Hydrospeichern vertraut machen, die Grundlagen flir die Auslegung der Spezifikationen eines Hy drospeichers liefern, sowie auf MaBnahmen zur Erhohung der Energiekapa zit t eines Hydrospeichers hinweisen. Entsprechend diesem Ziel ist das Buch in folgende Kapitel gegliedert, wie es zugleich im Bild 1.1 im Blockschema mit den Verknlipfungen der einzelnen Kapitel dargestellt ist.

By Renita Weems
Weems's pioneering learn explores the perplexing ways that the Hebrew prophets' portrayals of divine love, compassion, and traditional dedication frequently grew to become linked to battery, infidelity, and the rape and mutilation of ladies. She wrestles with the prophets' rhetoric and sexual metaphors to discover Israelite social buildings, asking, "What is implied approximately girls, males, and God via the language that the prophets use to explain the covenant among Yahweh and Israel?" This provocative paintings by means of a number one African American biblical pupil delves deeply into problems with intimacy and gear, violence and keep an eye on, seduction and betrayal, and is a searing indictment of the axial issues of Israelite religion-its covenantal and prophetic traditions-and their authority this day.

This ebook examines the explanations why numerous teams worldwide select to not undertake broadband companies and evaluates recommendations to stimulate the call for that would bring about elevated broadband use. It introduces readers to some great benefits of greater adoption charges whereas interpreting the growth that built and rising nations have made in stimulating broadband call for. via counting on thoughts corresponding to a offer and insist hole, broadband cost elasticity, and insist merchandising, this publication explains adjustments among the fastened and cellular broadband call for hole, introducing the notions of substitution and complementarity among either structures. construction on those options, ‘Driving call for for Broadband Networks and prone’ deals a collection of most sensible practices and proposals aimed toward selling broadband call for.
The broadband call for hole is outlined as contributors and families which can purchase a broadband subscription simply because they stay in components served through telecommunications providers yet don't achieve this as a result of both fiscal, constrained understanding, or loss of electronic literacy purposes. This grouping represents a spread from 30% of the inhabitants within the US, forty% in Germany, and over eighty% in so much rising nations. study shows that broadband utilization is necessary for social improvement, financial functionality, and total welfare and so it behoves governments to inspire call for.
This learn is the 1st of its type to handle the call for facet of broadband diffusion, incorporating an financial research whereas providing actual international examples of regulations and projects that experience effectively spurred call for in built and rising markets alike. This e-book is meant for coverage makers, managers of telecommunications and different know-how businesses, in addition to teachers and graduate scholars within the components of public coverage, monetary improvement, and expertise management.
This ebook is an eye-opener for coverage makers. generally ICT coverage has all for the availability part. Katz and Berry improve nice rules to leapfrog net penetration from the call for facet, the place the price of the net is. - Diego Molano Vega, Minister of data applied sciences and Communications of Colombia
This publication is an fast vintage. It brilliantly and convincingly lays out the case why facing insufficient net penetration has moved from the construction of provide to 1 of encouraging call for. It presents an information-rich and well-written presentation of the criteria conserving again humans from turning into clients, and provides a highly precious survey of a few of the courses all over the world to make the broadband net actually priceless to humans in all places. it's the form of e-book writers during this box will use always. - Eli Noam, Professor of Finance and Economics, Columbia company School
This new examine through Katz and Berry examines the reason for nationwide broadband plans and the proof for his or her luck in using call for. It offers the newest info on broadband in various case research international locations, and offers most sensible perform recommendation for policy-makers and improvement practitioners. - Dr Tim Kelly, Lead ICT coverage expert, global Bank
