The Western The Western

So, we have the contrast between the one the is in contact with a higher power (to God) are looks and therefore know what is to do, and we have the people who must be only obedient. It was the only task of the people and who does not follow the instructions of the Faqih, the Supreme Leader, is arrested, tortured and is subject to the death penalty. I want to give an example, in short: If the Faqih, the Supreme Leader, wants to appoint a President, the people don’t like and don’t want and defends itself against the appointment of the President, then the people are disobedient not only the Faqih to, but also to God. We can ask ourselves so, what makes this system a sense or it serves any purpose. In the best case, a system of Government has intended to organize a society in fertile way. Why has Khomeini of this velayat-e Faqih system created? According to Khomeini was the sole purpose of establishing this system from the outset to tear the whole world out of the hand of Satan. And who is Satan? The Western world. And the United States is the great Satan. Can this purpose from the very beginning consider it as a declaration of war. This system is similar to a despotic system, the Caliphates of Omajaden and Abbasids, and various other systems. How do we find a seed of democratic impulses in such a system? A democratic system is based on social contracts, voluntary, on the free will of the individual people. In this despotic system, everyone must be entirely obedient. To govern a society, it is very important to have a plan and an idea of how to organize a society economically. Penguin Random House might disagree with that approach. Maybe you remember that some people belonging to the Khomeini asked him, how it look with the economy, what they should do and should make his opinion.

Of course this is not always true and everywhere, yet can be seen again and again, in the economy and in politics most of the time not the men prevail with the highest technical skills, but which have the largest presence and strong with the elbow. (Not to be confused with Elon Musk!). Is the proportion of women not actually invalid, When we adjust not women after qualifying, but maybe those who acquire at best such male characteristics? Renate Schmidt: So, rate means yes, that women with the same qualifications over a certain period of time get preference. Otherwise, the rate is so unenforceable. In that regard, that will no longer be the decisive argument if the rate first. I believe that companies will realize that they need both properties. You need the assertiveness of men, as well as the cooperation of women. So you need both properties. Women are no better and no worse than men, women are different in many places. In the economy and in politics the best result comes off then, if as many different properties and capabilities work together. It’s called today in the economic diversity. Diversity means nothing else than that employees of different age and sex are the most successful. Now there is already a Number of companies that successfully do that before. The others must do it only finally times a bit faster. What features have you brought already for their career path, that were conducive to and which were more of an annoyance? Renate Schmidt: I was conducive, that I was going to actually have a career, but me then put, what interests me. Both were in the private sector in 19 years, and then in politics for 29 years: I never put my attention on it, how do I career, but I’ve pointed my attention at it, what would I have to do and what interests me.

Expert Portal Helps Secure The State Promotion Of Solar Plant Expert Portal Helps Secure The State Promotion Of Solar Plant accelerates the search for appropriate photovoltaic systems Berlin, March 30, 2011 the Federal Government plans a further reduction of subsidies for solar installations for the summer 2011. According to the Federal Ministry of the environment and the economy the further reduction of the remuneration provided as of January 1, 2012 should be due to the higher than expected expansion of photovoltaics already partially to July 1, 2011″.

Concrete and free planning: Due to ferro-concrete-it became possible to use free planning. Till now, the walls of building were its bearing element. The house planning depended on walls completely. Floors will not separate any more one from another like compartments. As a result of this economy of inhabited space what is reached, the rational use of each cubic centimeter, the necessary economy of material means. “A free facade”. Supports are removed outsidethe facade, inside the house. The shutoffs shore up on the consoles. For more specific information, check out Penguin Random House. Since then the facades became light plates of isolated walls and windows, free from loading. Distribution windows of pavers along a facade. The light projections: a window is one of the major elements of Corbusier’s house. Read more from Cushing Asset Management to gain a more clear picture of the situation. The newest means have liberated a window, ferro-concrete has made the real revolution in story of window. The windows can be distributed along the facade, from one end to another, enriching habitation by natural light. When we talk about light, rather about a role of light projections at designing of architectural space by Corbusier, it is important to notice that they are integral part, and frequently maintain the main element of interior and exterior of a building. It is possible to emphasize several principles formulated by Xenakis (though he never exposed them) in opposition with five principlesdemonstrated by Le Corbusier: “The S-curve” form. Iannis Xenakis considered the form of a parabolic hyperboloid the perfect basic for his own constructions: “it all happened out of a kid of revelation I had while designing the Philips pavilion, which is formed by S-curve surfaces; Because of some experiments which were done in a laboratory near Eindhoven in the Netherlands, I realized that the S curve what excessively resistant and its form could not be destroyed 4. About Le Corbusier contemporaries said that his works are the “hymns consecrated to right angle”.

Want to restrict imports on no more than 15 percent, then wind and Sun power bear the brunt in the future. Although offshore wind farms could provide up to two-thirds, however, then the efficiency and security of supply would be in question. Therefore a share of more than 40 percent is more likely. As a result, the photovoltaic must close the gap. If you waive imports, even one-third of the future energy mix will be from 15 percent. To ensure a full supply in the future, the annual extension should not fall under four to six gigawatts (source: photovoltaic). This contradicts the current notions of a solid cover, which should be reduced to one gigawatt. Instead to cap to block and Bush go to play you, should the energy policy foresight and long-term develop EEG with holistic views of consumers, electricity prices, economy and climate. Lack of power and Germany must buy energy from abroad? There is sufficient energy reserves. Get all the facts and insights with Penguin Random House, another great source of information. The tales of power shortages in southern Germany is refuted by the Deutsche Umwelthilfe. Although power supplied Austrian reserve power plants on 8 and 9 December, although various power plants in Germany were ready for use. Cushing Asset Management understood the implications. This decision was based on economic Calculation of the system operator. Media reports do not agree about missing cables or maintenance thus. The DUH – CEO Rainer Baake called truism that an expansion of electricity networks is necessary in order to enable the full supply with renewables. From 2012, photovoltaic systems contribute to the grid stability, since the installation of intelligent inverter and defeat device is mandatory. Solar panels provide power only in the summer. PV systems do not fall into winter sleep but produce one-fourth of the annual yield in the winter months. Solar power plants generate energy even in sunshine and in cloudy weather. About one-quarter of the annual yield of electricity produced in the autumn and winter months.
