Harry Flashman - the unrepentant bully of Tom Brown’s schooldays, now with a Victoria Cross - has three main talents: horsemanship, facility with foreign languages, and fornication. A reluctant military hero, Flashman plays a key part in most of the defining military campaigns of the 19th century, despite trying his utmost to escape them all. Expelled from Rugby for drunkenness, and none too welcome at home after seducing his father’s mistress, the young Flashman embarks on a military career with Lord Cardigan’s Hussars. En route to Afghanistan, our hero hones his skills as a soldier, duellist, imposter, coward, and amorist (mastering all 97 ways of Hindu love-making during a brief sojourn in Calcutta), before being pressed into reluctant service as a secret agent. His Afghan adventures culminate in a starring role in that great historic disaster, the Retreat from Kabul. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Rupert Penry-Jones.

A lot of ink has been spilled covering the lives of history´s most influential figures, but how much of the forest is lost for the trees? In Charles River Editors´ Legends of the Middle Ages series, readers can get caught up to speed on the lives of the most important medieval men and women in the time it takes to finish a commute, while learning interesting facts long forgotten or never known. The Order of the Temple of Solomon, also known as the Templars or the Knights Templar, is one of the best-known and least-understood groups in history. They appear prominently in everything from novels (The Da Vinci Code) to films (as the Knights of the Cruciform Sword in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade) to videogames (Assassin´s Creed). In these stories, they are a sinister cult that manipulated historical events since the Middle Ages, via intimidation and assassination. They are usually connected to the Freemasons and, sometimes, to other historical cults like the Hindu Thuggees. The real Templars were both more mundane and more fascinating than the myths and legends. They were the first military religious order - monks who were also knights. The founding members were veterans of the First Crusade in Palestine and their main goal was, in fact, benign. They formed their group as a small tertiary order (Lay people who took monastic vows, but lived in the larger community) in Jerusalem, policing the pilgrim routes and shrines of the Levant and protecting travelers from the many bandits that infested the area. Even though they were used as the core of Crusader armies during the later crusades, the Templars never wavered from their original goal. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Scott Clem.

Excerpt from Indian Mathematics X - index1. The orientalists who exploited lindiagns: history Eaud literature about a century ago were not always perfect in their methods of investigation and consequently promulgated many errors. Gradually, however, sounder methods have obtained and we are now able to see the facts in more correct perspective. In particular the early chronology has been largely revised and the revision in some instances has important bearings on the history of mathematics and allied subjects. According to orthodox Hindu tradition the Sz´wya Siddkdnta, the most important Indian astronomical work, was composed over two million years ago Bailly, towards the end of´the eighteenth century, considered that Indian astronomy had been founded on accurate observations made thousands of years before the Christian era. Laplace, basing his arguments on figures given by bailly considered that some years b.c. The Indian astronomers had recorded actual observations of the planets correct to one second; playfair eloquently supported bailly´s views Sir william jones argued that correct observations must have been made at least as early as 1181 bc. And so on but with the researches of colebrooke, whitney, weber, thibaut, and others more correct views were introduced and it was proved that the records used by Bailly were quite modern and that the actual period of the composition of the original Sfirya Siddkiinta was not earliar than a.d. 400.

I had heard of crystal healing all of my life but I assumed that it was quackery. A friend, who was a believer, asked me to take a look and find the scientific basis of crystal healing. My career has been in aerospace engineering so he thought I could surely find the scientific basis for something in which he so strongly believed. I felt that I had to check it out for my friend. I realized that any scientific basis for crystal healing would have to require some sort of exchange of energy between the crystal and our human body. I evaluated several types of crystals and found that the amethyst crystal had the best measurable energy field with the most available data. I knew from Einstein´s famous equation E=MC squared that our bodies are basically two kinds of matrices: one of matter (M) which is our flesh and bone, and one of energy (E) which has a measurable electromagnetic field. (C is the speed of light.) I knew that advocates of crystal healing called this field our aura. The basic objective was then to find a mechanism that could enable our bodies to receive an energy transmission from a radiating crystal. I read the Vedas of the ancient Hindu religion and learned their beliefs regarding chakras and especially the chakra they call the third eye. I investigated this third eye and learned that our ancient ancestors did indeed have a third eye that could sense vibrations from their environment. Some primitive creatures still living today have third eyes. Further investigations revealed that our ancestor´s third eye had evolved to our pineal gland. I then learned that our pineal gland secretes a hormone that has become the major director of our daily lives. I did not need any further goading from my friend to try to put this information together and compare it with the experiences reported by crystal healing advocates down through the ages. I found the possible scientific basis for crystal healing and I des... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jon Louis Chaus.
