Excerpt from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone Voldemort is the villain of the Harry Potter series. In this scene, Harry sees Voldemort for the first time. What clues does J. K. Rowling use to communicate that Voldemort is an evil character in the story? “Look—” he murmured, holding out his arm to stop Malfoy. Something bright white was gleaming on the ground. They inched closer. It was the unicorn all right, and it was dead. Harry had never seen anything so beautiful and sad. Its long, slender legs were stuck out at odd angles where it had fallen and its mane was spread pearly-white on the dark leaves. Harry had taken one step toward it when a slithering sound made him freeze where he stood. A bush on the edge of the clearing quivered. . . . Then, out of the shadows, a hooded figure came crawling across the ground like some stalking beast. Harry, Malfoy, and Fang stood transfixed. The cloaked figure reached the unicorn, lowered its head over the wound in the animal’s side, and began to drink its blood. “AAAAAAAAAAARGH!” Malfoy let out a terrible scream and bolted—so did Fang. The hooded figure raised its head and looked right at Harry—unicorn blood was dribbling down its front. It got to its feet and came swiftly toward Harry—he couldn’t move for fear. From J. K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (NY: Scholastic, 1997), pages 255–256.
Course Name: Harry Potter and the Holocaust: Collective Memory and Alternative Ways of Talking about Racism and Genocide Time: MW 5 (MAT 0108); F 5 (MAT 0018) Instructor: Dror Abend-David (firstname.lastname@example.org) Office hours: T 5,7; R 5 Course Description What is collective memory? And what is the difference between symbol, image, and icon? How do inadvertent visual descriptions compare to direct statements when it comes to speaking to children, adolescents, and even adults about the holocaust? The course will compare the treatment of the holocaust, racism and genocide in books such as Night, The Diary of Anne-Frank and Maus: A Survivor's Tale with a more general discussion of violence and racism in books such as The Wave, Animal Farm, and Lord of the Flies (as well as Shirley Jackson's short story, "The Lottery.") The main texts for this course will be two books out of the Harry Potter series (The Goblet of Fire and The Deathly Hallows), a series which has been intended for children, and which makes almost no mention of historical events and identity while speaking of purity of blood, racial violence and (eventually) state-run racial persecution. Grades (1) Class participation, including short weekly assignments (20%); (2) Written assignments (20%); (3) Midterm paper (30%); (4) Final paper (30%) Grading Scale
The easiest way to connect your Ipod to the Renault radio. Before explaining how to do this, first the advantages and disadvantages: Advantages: 1. Easy to install 2. Material needed costs less than EUR 10 3. Volume (including mute) will work with the remote control behind the steering wheel 4. Your Ipod music on your radio Disadvantages: 1. No music/song information on the radio screen 2. It will not automatically charge your Ipod 3. You cannot skip songs with the radio remote control With more advantages than disadvantages ☺, here is the story: While surfing on the forum I discovered that the standard Renault radio has an AUX-input on the back of the radio. There are several interfaces (like IceLink) which connect your Ipod to almost any radio, but they are quite expensive. Because the Renault radio does not produce spectacular sounds, a cheap and easy way would do fine for my Ipod music. The link to start, with many thanks to our German forum members, was: http://board.mccforum.de/viewtopic.php?t=1656&highlight=aux The relevant info for the standard Renault radio can be found on the back of the radio: With this information, the search for an easy adapter just began. After a few hours of ‘googling’ I found a “mini-iso mini jack” converter cable at the Conrad store (http://www.conrad.nl).

US paid for and bought Ukraine mess -- end story . First it was Orange Revolution, and it was a flop. Cost Ukrainians dearly. Then came Yanukovich, inheriting the Orange disaster, and trying to fix it by blackmailing both the West and Russia. Oligarchs ran him, and he pretended to run the country. The politics of sitting on the fence, turned out the policy of sitting on a razor's edge. US invested FIVE BILLION --the fact -- into preparing this revolution -- new and improved Orange II . This time, US had allies, Galicia's own nazi parties ******* АНТИСЕМИТИЗАМ ЈУЛИЈА ТИМОШЕНКО ВИКТОР ЈАНУКОВИЧ

The latest 3.4 litre version of the Powertec RP V8 Doubled up Tom Sharp investigates a cost effective V8 racing engine on behalf of Powertec. It essentially consists of a pair of Hayabusa engines, arranged at a 72° bank angle, driving a common crankshaft and mounted to a dedicated dry-sumped crankcase. The result is a P keenly priced V8 engine that is very light, powerful and reliable. The having initially a 2.6 litre displacement, it had been commissioned by been joined by three other varieties (see Table 1), which demonstrates Radical Motorsport for installation into that company’s SR8 sports-racing just how much flexibility is in the base package. The numbers tell the car. Radical specialised in motorcycle-engined sports-racers and was story of commercial success well enough. Powertec have to date built keen to augment its popular four cylinder machines with a V8. a total of 110 RP engines (including 75 RPAs and 25 RPBs); volumes owertec Engineering’s innovative, Suzuki Hayabusa-based engine is now owned, manufactured and built by Powertec Engineering RP V8 engine was introduced in the UK at the Autosport from its base in Peterborough, England.

However, DOSSIER : POWERTEC RP V8 ENGINE RP V8 CAD image governs UK motorsport – they banned it on the grounds of it not being derived from a passenger-carrying vehicle. Horne’s solicitors eventually ensured the car received its required log book but the MSA made it clear that the RP was not welcome in rallying. Powertec’s original product portfolio plan had included a 2.0 litre ‘screamer’ version, but as Ted Hurrell explains customer demand drove the capacity in the opposite direction. “The screamer was originally conceived for use in 2.0 litre hillclimb and VdeV sportscar racing, however the VdeV regulations quickly changed to insist upon four cylinder car engines and our hillclimb customers went in the direction of the unlimited classes, which means increasing swept volume as far as possible to maximize torque. So only one 2.0 litre engine was built before that variant was then unfortunately the RP series only represents 20% of Powertec’s business; the majority revolves around building and tuning the Suzuki Hayabusa four cylinder shelved. “Those two examples, of the 2.5 and 2.0 litre engines go to engines for markets such as motorbike racing, low volume production...
