Retirement is usually perceived as boredom, hopelessness and, virtually, the dead end of one's life. But it is a complete misconception. In fact, retirement is the beginning of another phase of life that can be satisfying and meaningful, even better than the 'productive phase', provided we make some smart choices and follow the right strategies. Like other important things in life, we must have some higher purpose, some goal, or mission in life to fulfil after retiring. Our inspiration and deeds should convince others of how great, wonderful and purposeful retired life can be. Retired But Not ... View more info

Beda Stjernschantzin (1867?1910) opintie vei Pariisiin, missä hän tutustui ajan kansainvälisiin taidevirtauksiin ja kiinnostui erityisesti symbolismista. Matka jatkui Viroon, Venäjälle, Italiaan ja Yhdysvaltoihin. Sairauden sävyttämä, lyhyeksi jäänyt elämä on syynä siihen, että hänen taiteellinen tuotantonsa jäi suppeaksi eikä sitä heti ymmärretty. Hiljattain löydetty Stjernschantzin kirjeenvaihto ja muistiinpanot antavat hänestä aiempaa täydemmän ja monisyisemmän kuvan. Printed Pages: 302. View more info

Narrow, polished flutes have been formed on bedrock surfaces at a number of localities on the south-western and north-eastern sides of the Åland Sea. These were eroded by subglacial, sediment-charged meltwater. The fluted surfaces are polished, in sharp contrast to the surrounding, coarser bedrock surfaces with glacial striae. The glacial striae have been rubbed off from the fluted surfaces at most sites and replaced by comparatively deep and narrow erosion marks. Printed Pages: 39. View more info

Berättelserna handlar t.ex. om flykten undan ryssarna, om hunger, köld och andra vedermödor som drabbade både lokalbefolkningen och soldaterna på båda sidor. Printed Pages: 236. View more info

Spår av hav, yxa och penna ger ett bidrag till den undervattensarkeologiska metodologi inom vars ramverk kännedomen om Östersjöns förflutna under de senaste seklerna har dragits fram i dagsljuset. Boken vill ge en bakgrund till utforskandet av gångna sjöolyckor i Sveriges och Finlands kustvatten under en tid, då de bägge länderna var förenade, med ett gemensamt ämbetsmaskineri och gemensamma lagar. Myndigheternas skriftliga kvarlåtenskap i förening med undervattensarkeologiska rön ger värdefulla informationer, som forskningen kan utnyttja. n. Printed Pages: 214. View more info
