    • CASCA Are not you moved, when all the sway of earth
      Shakes like a thing unfirm? O Cicero,
      I have seen tempests, when the scolding winds
      Have rived the knotty oaks, and I have seen
      The ambitious ocean swell and rage and foam,
      To be exalted with the threatening clouds:
      But never till to-night, never till now,
      Did I go through a tempest dropping fire.
      Either there is a civil strife in heaven,
      Or else the world, too saucy with the gods,
      Incenses them to send destruction.   Shakespeare, Julius Caesar I/iii
    • Hello guys,

      I run a bookstore. My wife's biggest dream is to visit London. And that dream would be fulfilled very soon. We going on a trip to London for 2 months. We would stay at her cousin's apartment during that period. My younger daughter would be in charge of the bookstore until we come back. Every day a huge amount of books arrive at the store. It would be difficult for her to lift the books into the store. When discussed this with my friend, He suggested using a scissor lift. What are the things I should consider while buying a scissor lift? Please do reply. Thanks in advance.   edited to remove forbidden sales link  
    • Stephen Hawking's last book and it does give brief answers to big questions.  The first one is : Is there a God? This is an accessible book fairly easy to read and cogent.  Stephen Hawking comes across as a man who has a wicked sense of humour just bubbling from the surface and incapable of keeping it in.  He also comes across, unlike other scientists, as a man who understands why non-scientists and ordinary people have trouble understanding what physics is about. He also doesn't seem to have a huge ego, which is refreshing.   The book is interesting and entertaining, which in a science book is rare.   I'd recommend it.
    • That summer bird its oft repeated note Chirps from the dotterel ash and in the hole The green woodpecker made in years remote It makes its nest--where peeping idlers strole In anxious plundering moods--and bye and bye The wrynecks curious eggs as white as snow While squinting in the hollow tree they spy The sitting bird looks up with jetty eye And waves her head in terror too and fro Speckled and veined in various shades of brown And then a hissing noise assails the clown And quick with hasty terror in his breast From the trees knotty trunk he sluthers down And thinks the strange bird guards a serpents nest   John Clare - 'The Wrynecks Nest'
