I celebrate myself, and sing myself, And what I assume you shall assume, For every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you. I loafe and invite my soul, I lean and loafe at my ease observing a spear of summer grass. My tongue, every atom of my blood, form’d from this soil, this air, Born here of parents born here from parents the same, and their parents the same, I, now thirty-seven years old in perfect health begin, Hoping to cease not till death. Creeds and schools in abeyance, Retiring back a while sufficed at what they are, but never forgotten, I harbor for good or bad, I permit to speak at every hazard, Nature without check with original energy. The atmosphere is not a perfume, it has no taste of the distillation, it is odorless, It is for my mouth forever, I am in love with it, I will go to the bank by the wood and become undisguised and naked, I am mad for it to be in contact with me. Have you reckon’d a thousand acres much? Have you practis’d so long to learn to read? Have you felt so proud to get at the meaning of poems? Stop this day and night with me and you shall possess the origin of all poems, You shall possess the good of the earth and sun, there are millions of suns left, You shall no longer take things at second or third hand, nor look through the eyes of the dead, nor feed on the spectres in books, You shall not look through my eyes either, nor take things from me, You shall listen to all sides and filter them from your self. There was never any more inception than there is now, Nor any more youth or age than there is now, And will never be any more perfection than there is now, Nor any more heaven or hell than there is now.

Since this trope involves finding out about long lost relatives — it’s rife with spoilers! Before The Reveal , several characters commented on the similarities between the two. Creepily, because of their constant bickering read as Belligerent Sexual Tension and amusing degree of being similar-yet-opposite, they had a whole contingent of shippers. Not all of them gave up when the truth came out.

Your Weather on metservice. How does it work? The WOW System was developed by the Met Office, with support from the Royal Meteorological Society and the Department for Education in the UK, to provide an online hub for UK weather observations which helps educate children about weather and encourages further growth in the UK’s amateur weather observing community. Despite its UK focus, the WOW System now has global coverage and has attracted visits from weather enthusiasts in more than countries.

This approach enables us to add other useful information, such as weather cams and traffic cams, in the same single view. We intend to grow the types of weather-related information that you can access from Your Weather pages, so let us know what you would like to see! How do I get my observations onto Your Weather? To find out what kinds of weather stations work with Your Weather, check out the Compatible Weather Stations and Software page.

A filter is provided so you can turn either the MetService or third-party weather stations on or off.

The Ash Wednesday bushfires, known in South Australia as Ash Wednesday II, were a series of bushfires that occurred in south-eastern Australia on 16 February , which was Ash Wednesday in the Christian calendar. Within twelve hours, more than fires fanned by winds of up to km/h (68 mph) caused widespread destruction across the states of Victoria and South Australia.

Very few such cases appear to merit media coverage, it would seem. District Commander Gary Knowles says the police will not apologise. She suffered a dislocated elbow and required stitches to her face. But the officer is likely to avoid conviction after being offered diversion. Superintendent Bill Harrison retired on May 17 last year, before an independent investigation was completed so no disciplinary action was taken.

The officer appeared in the Blenheim District Court after earlier denying a charge of hunting deer and goats on land at Blue Mountain near Ward on April 17 without the authority of the property owner. Judge David Saunders told police it was a recipe for disaster. The 16 year old, who was nursing a baby, was forced to express breast milk into a cell sink.

Backgrounds[ edit ] South Australian bushfires[ edit ] On Ash Wednesday in during a virtually rainless summer after a very wet spring in , bushfires swept through the Adelaide Hills in South Australia, destroying 51 houses. In many places, rainfall over winter and spring had been as little as half the previous record low [17] in a record dating back to the s [18] and severe water restrictions were imposed in Melbourne in November.

The first week of February was punctuated by intense heat, with record high temperatures experienced on 1 and 8 February. This combination further destabilised an already volatile fire situation in the forested upland areas surrounding the Victorian and South Australian capitals of Melbourne and Adelaide. Early fire season[ edit ] Victorian Government firefighting agencies employed extra staff and organised for additional equipment and aircraft to be ready for firefighting over the summer.

Origin hypotheses[ edit ] A traditional hunter-gatherer society in Wyoming, Scholars have developed a number of hypotheses to explain the historical origins of agriculture. Studies of the transition from hunter-gatherer to agricultural societies indicate an antecedent period of intensification and increasing sedentism ; examples are the Natufian culture in southwest Asia, and the Early Chinese Neolithic in China.

Current models indicate that wild stands that had been harvested previously started to be planted, but were not immediately domesticated. An abundance of readily storable wild grains and pulses enabled hunter-gatherers in some areas to form the first settled villages at this time. List of food origins Sumerian harvester’s sickle, 3, BC, made from baked clay Early people began altering communities of flora and fauna for their own benefit through means such as fire-stick farming and forest gardening very early.

An example is the semi-tough rachis and larger seeds of cereals from just after the Younger Dryas about 9, BC in the early Holocene in the Levant region of the Fertile Crescent. Monophyletic characteristics were attained without any human intervention, implying that apparent domestication of the cereal rachis could have occurred quite naturally. Similar ploughs were used throughout antiquity.

Agriculture began independently in different parts of the globe, and included a diverse range of taxa. At least 11 separate regions of the Old and New World were involved as independent centers of origin. Pigs were domesticated in Mesopotamia around 11, BC. Area 3 is no longer recognised as a centre of origin, and Papua New Guinea not shaded was identified more recently.

The new Customs and Excise Bill means Customs will no longer be able to demand that people entering the country hand over the passwords to their devices without reasonable cause. Although, is that a change? There seems to be some confusion about what we believed the law was and what it actually was, as opposed to this law. So what was the law, and what does this bill mean?

So they already have been doing that. This law brings in a new authority for them to penalise people for not handing over the passwords but has been cut down from the original Customs demand, which they wanted carte blanche. So is it a good tweak, a good compromise, between privacy invasion and the need for security? So who decides what reasonable cause is? They can only do it for relevant offences, which means to do with importing forbidden goods.

So, in effect then, they have got carte blanche. I think that bringing up terrorism is a mistake. This law is specifically designed not to allow it to be used for tracking down people accused of terrorist offences. This law is only for relevant offences, which is importing forbidden goods. So nothing to do with terrorism.

Christchurch Moving On Though ChristChurch Cathedral will almost certainly be restored to former glory, the fate of other heritage buildings, indeed the future of the city itself, is less clear. Beverley Studios, a heritage building once standing on the far corner, was declared safe by an engineer, despite the partial collapse of adjoining buildings in the quake. But in a surprise twist, owners Marg and Peter Straw got word one evening that their building would be demolished the next day.

They were given half an hour to remove what they needed. The building was gone by midday. The seismic performance of unreinforced masonry was severely tested in these historic Opawa flats.

We have a proud history dating back more than 50 years to the New Zealand Ministry of Works when we provided experimental research that informed the design and construction of major national infrastructure projects, such as hydroelectric power schemes and state highways.

Domestic pigs had multiple centres of origin in Eurasia, including Europe, East Asia and Southwest Asia, [11] where wild boar were first domesticated about 10, years ago. Area 3 grey is no longer recognised as a centre of origin, and Papua New Guinea red, ‘P’ was identified more recently.

These eight crops occur more or less simultaneously on Pre-Pottery Neolithic B PPNB sites in the Levant , although wheat was the first to be grown and harvested on a significant scale. At around the same time BC , parthenocarpic fig trees were domesticated.

Surely the previous governments were also culpable? There is a trend, probably cos so many politicians rely on the Law and Order scare-mongering in campaigning to score points, to talk up the danger we are all in, and how hard it is for the police to do their work making it very hard to criticise the police?
