Hirsch’s biggest undertaking, however, is a review, the first since 1974, of the MLA’s structures of knowledge, its divisions and discussion groups. This may sound bureaucratic but it affects everything from the convention to job listings and the structure of academic departments. For instance, foreign languages such as Chinese and Arabic are gaining importance and need more space in the MLA, as does the teaching of writing.

But with mass demonstrations in Moscow and St. Petersburg, the country is “as politicized as I’ve seen Russian society since the early 1990s,” he said. “Many well educated Russians who were not particularly interested in politics really made a special point to talk with me about what was going on.”.

Bulk Metallic Glasses (BMGs), even called bulk amorphous alloys, are a category of new advanced materials with a disordered atomic scale structure. Their unique microstructure imparts outstanding physical and chemical properties (Huang et al., 2016) to the manufacts (Schroers, 2010b; Schroers et al., 1999; Mirsayar et al., 2016, 2017).The absence of long range atomic order lead to unique, physical, chemical and mechanical properties of bulk metallic glasses, that have found pilot applications in a wide range of field from sporting goods to precision mechanical components, electronics and biomedicine (Wang et al., 2004; Schroers, 2010a; Kumar et al., 2009; Inoue and Takeuchi, 2011).Zr based BMGs are technologically attracting since they can be processed in larger parts due to their broad super cooled liquid region and high glass forming ability. Among the Zr based alloy systems recently developed, containing different combination of Cu, Al, Ti, Ni (Wang, 2007; Shen et al., 2005; Jiang et al., 2008; Liu et al., 2007; Mattern et al., 2002), we investigate a commercial BMG containing the same atoms but with the addition of Be.

Just like gradient lenses, polarised lenses will push the price for a pair of Ray Ban RB3025’s up above the $100 mark. I’m not really a fan of Polarised anyway, they have good advertising but they can cause you to see distortions on screens like on an iPhone which can be quite annoying. They are also terrible for motorcycle riding you cant see through a helmet visor properly becuase of the rainbow distortion.

At JTS, Newman studied the Bible, the Talmud and Hebrew literature and at Columbia, he took a class on hieroglyphics. He felt inspired by the “almost magical” experience of celebrating Shabbat at JTS with the great American Jewish scholars of the time, including Abraham Joshua Heschel and Louis Finkelstein, and studying the Middle East at Columbia with the distinguished Israeli statesman and visiting professor Abba Eban. After graduating, he went to rabbinical school in London at Leo Baeck College..
