This book includes stories of my journeys in Asia. It is not a guide-book to travel. The book was a collection of the feeling, impression and experience of areas, regions, countries where I visited with joy, worry, anxiety, surprise and disappointment, suddenness and interest… The journey and writings are my prayer for peace in the earth, finish bombs, children have many foods, nobody is poverty-stricken, everybody can travel. In this book, the start of my journeys was Hanoi - my native city, then travels were spreading from near to far. The first story was “Hanoi two thousands years” with legends of my home-city. Nhatrang, a city in the central region, and Mekong delta in the south region of Vietnam were two next visits. Other stories were my feeling and impressions of Vientian with friendliness, Angkor with a ride on elephant, experiences of many travels in Thailand, contrary impression of Myanmar , astonishment in Shenzhen, trading in Singapore, the world is not flat in India, Israeli charity… “Visa” was a special story about my experiences before travels. “Author's confidence” and “Short extracts of other travels” were the last in the book. It was the open finish of this book because I continue to travel, to write… Every story in this book is every view. Please read and with me wish peace in the earth, finish bombs, children have many foods, nobody is poverty-stricken, everybody can travel…
Near and far are important concepts to understand; who doesn't want to know if a shark is near or far? This colorful volume is an enjoyable exploration of this pair of opposites. It invites beginning readers to practice using these terms in relation to familiar and fun scenarios in the real world. They'll spot near and faraway elephants, birds, boats, and sharks in the lively photographs accompanying the achievable text.
A major fraction of star formation in the universe occurs in starbursts. These regions of particularly rapid star formation are often located towards the centers of host galaxies. Studies of this kind of star formation at high redshift have produced astonishing results over recent years that were only possible with the latest generation of large ground-based and space telescopes. The papers collected in this volume present these results in the context of the much firmer foundation of star formation in the local universe, and they emphasize all the important topics, from star formation in different environments to the cosmic star formation history.
Whether navigating the backroads of Louisiana or Thuringia, exploring the snowy Quebec woods, or performing onstage at Rush concerts, Neil Peart has stories to tell. His first volume in this series, Far and Away, combined words and images to form an intimate, insightful narrative that won many readers. Now Far and Near brings together reflections from another three years of an artist’s life as he celebrates seasons, landscapes, and characters, travels roads and trails, receives honors, climbs mountains, composes and performs music. With passionate insight, wry humor, and an adventurous spirit, once again Peart offers a collection of open letters that take readers on the road, behind the scenes, and into the inner workings of an ever-inquisitive mind. These popular stories, originally posted on Peart’s website, are now collected and contextualized with a new introduction and conclusion in this beautifully designed collector’s volume.
