LEpopee de Gilgamesh: Le Grand Roi Qui Ne Voulait Pas Mourir by Jean KardecIl est celui qui a explore les confins des pays, celui qui a connu et experimente toutes choses; il est lerudit et lomniscient qui a eclairci les mysteres du monde, celui qui a perce les secrets de la vie, leve le voile sur ce qui etait cache et nous a transmis les connaissances davant le Deluge. Ainsi debute lEpopee de Gilgamesh, ce roi illustre mais tyrannique, humain pour un tiers et divin aux deux tiers, qui partit en quete de limmortalite et tira de son periple les enseignements qui menent a la sagesse veritable. Dune puissance lyrique epoustouflante, ce recit initiatique, qui inspira les mythes fondateurs des trois grandes religions monotheistes, constitue le plus ancien texte litteraire de lhumanite et aborde avec un regard sensible les themes indemodables de lamitie, de la recherche du bonheur et du sens de la vie. Afin de replacer lhistoire dans son contexte et de la rendre accessible a tous, lauteur a en outre pris soin dajouter, tout au long de cet ouvrage, diverses annotations melant etudes historiques, mythologiques et archeologiques.
vice lord documentary part 1
The Vice Lord nation is one of the largest gangs in the United States with chapters in every state in the nation and almost every city and town in this country. The Vice Lord nation has grown so powerful because of the goals the nation has tried to accomplish over time. Many think it is all about drugs and money but the real cause for the nation is not about drugs and money or not even about violence, but this is the behavior that often results from membership but the nation itself does not condone violence and criminal activity. There was a time in history where our country had faith in the Vice Lords and even offered assistance; as a result, something positive and marvelous developed from it that helped west side youths live better lives. The Vice Lords were positive for the North Lawndale community and had a very positive impact on the youth during this time period. What needs to be understood is there was barely any opportunity for black youths on the west side of Chicago and there was often only one way to go.
Ronald Terry, 49, once alleged to be the leader of the Memphis branch of the Chicago-based Vice Lords, was found shot to death along with a female companion, Candid Sanders, 36, on Thursday afternoon. A Memphis Police Department spokesperson said the investigation is active and she could not share other details. On the day of the shooting, the Tennessee Department of Corrections locked down every prison in the state "due to information received from external law enforcement partners," according to a statement. The restrictions were lifted at some prisons a day later, but others remained locked down as of Saturday. South Central Correctional Facility in Clifton remains locked down pending an investigation into fights that broke out Thursday evening, according to Amanda Gilchrist, a spokesperson for CoreCivic , the private company that runs the facility. Around 8 p. Thursday, there were two separate "inmate-on-inmate assaults" at the prison, Gilchrist said in a statement.
