What is Italy known for?


huge lead

on a DVD release entitled ''Touring the Angel: Live in Milan''. On Lisa's suggestion, Homer decides to run for mayor against candidates numbering in excess of 200, from the Comic Book Guy, to the Italian (Italy) chef Luigi Risotto, to Springfield Elementary School bully Jimbo Jones, to newsman Kent Brockman, to actor Rainier Wolfcastle, playing on his popularity as the Safety Salamander and building a huge lead in the polls. In Jimbo' closing statement it says "Tough on nerds, tougher on dorks". It does not help Homer's competitors when Smithers (Waylon Smithers) puts out a negative advertising campaign that points out that Homer hardly ever shows up at the Springfield (Springfield (The Simpsons)) Nuclear Power Plant (Nuclear power) anymore, and instead pays a homeless man (Vagrancy (people)) to do his job for him. But when Marge washes Homer's salamander costume after witnessing him vomit (vomiting) therein — though more generally, acting up on her own concern that his possession of the outfit has not included it being washed — it falls apart during a debate forum (where we learn that the Crazy Cat-Lady (Crazy Cat Lady)'s real name is Eleanor Abernathy and is very intellectual despite her deranged rantings for "cats in everyone's pants!"), and the crowd turns on him. Eventually, none of the new candidates gain the 5% of master vote needed to oust Mayor Quimby. On his news program, Brockman states that he did not really want to be mayor anyway ("Sorry! Your loss, ''jackasses''!"). Nevertheless, Lisa confides in Homer that she is very proud of him and glad he is her father. As they dance in the deserted ballroom, Homer notes that he can't believe he lost "after Ben Affleck campaigned night and day for me" and Lisa sighs and says "Yeah, I warned you about that." '''Stanisław Brzozowski''' (28 June 1878, Maziarnia, Russian Empire - 30 April 1911, Florence, Italy) was a Polish (Poles) philosopher, writer, publicist, literary and theatre critic. He is considered to be one of the most important Polish philosophers of all time and is known for his concept of the 'philosophy of labour', rooted in Marxism,. Besides Marx, among his major inspirations were Sorel (Georges Sorel), Nietzsche, Bergson, Carlyle (Thomas Carlyle), and Newman. Brzozowski's core idea was based on the concept of socially engaged intellectual (artist). Although he was in favour of historical materialism, he strongly argued against its deterministic interpretation. In his philosophical approaches, Brzozowski rejected all the concepts that were comodyfing a human being. Since Autumn 1898 Brzozowski suffered heavily from tuberculosis which was a consequence of the time spent in prison. For recovery reasons, he decided to go to the sanatorium in Otwock. In 1900 he met there Antonina Kolberg and they married the next year. In 1903 his only child, daughter Anna Irena, was born. His health problems accompanied him for the rest of his life. In 1905 for the first time he went to Nevi, Italy to receive more intense medical care. In 1906 he went to Italy again and resided in Florence until his death in 1911. Last few years of his life, although spent in gradually degrading material and health conditions, were the most productive period of his life. Brzozowski then wrote his ''opus magnum'' - novel ''Płomienie'' ''Flames'' - a response to Dostoyevsky ''The Possessed'', as well as main books concerning his philosophical and cultural program: ''Idee. Wstęp do filozofii dojrzałości dziejowej.'' (''Ideas. An introduction to the Historical Maturity'') and ''Legenda Młodej Polski'' (''The Legend of Young Poland''). In 1952, he moved with his family to Italy, where he stayed for two years as visiting professor in the Brazilian Studies Department of University of Rome (University of Rome La Sapienza).

He scored a total of 4 goals in the tournament, and most importantly also had a great collaboration on the field with towering striker Pierre van Hooijdonk. During the tournament, they defeated SC Freiburg, Rangers F.C., PSV Eindhoven and Internazionale Milano before meeting German team Borussia Dortmund in the final. Tomasson scored the goal to 3–1, in a game that ended 3–2 to Feyenoord, and he was subsequently voted man of the match.

Warren later attended Yale University and obtained his B. Litt. as a Rhodes Scholar from New College, Oxford, in England in 1930. He also received a Guggenheim Fellowship to study in Italy during the rule of Benito Mussolini. That same year he began his teaching career at Southwestern College (now Rhodes College) in Memphis, Tennessee. The prose cycles of the 13th century, the Lancelot-Grail cycle and the Post-Vulgate Cycle, further adapt the chivalric attributes of the Round Table. Here it is the perfect knight Galahad, rather than Percival, who assumes the empty seat, now called the Siege Perilous. Galahad's arrival marks the start of the Grail quest as well as the end of the Arthurian era. In these works the Round Table is kept by King Leodegrance of Cameliard after Uther's death; Arthur inherits it when he marries Leodegrance's daughter Guinevere. Other versions treat the Round Table differently, for instance Italian (Italy) Arthurian works often distinguish between the "Old Table" of Uther's time and Arthur's "New Table." Hoffman, Donald L.

Amānullāh's reforms touched on many areas of Afghan life. In 1921 he established an air force, albeit with only a few Soviet planes and pilots; Afghan personnel later received training in France, Italy, and Turkey. Although he came to power with army support, Amanullah alienated many army personnel by reducing both their pay and size of the forces and by altering recruiting patterns to prevent tribal leaders from controlling who joined the service. Amanullah's Turkish advisers suggested the king retire the older officers, men who were set in their ways and might resist the formation of a more professional army. Amanullah's minister of war, General Muhammad Nadir Khan, a member of the Musahiban branch of the royal family, opposed these changes, preferring instead to recognize tribal sensitivities. The king rejected Nadir Khan's advice and an anti-Turkish faction took root in the army; in 1924 Nadir Khan left the government to become ambassador to France. thumb left List of monarchs of Afghanistan King (File:King Amanullah Khan.jpg) Amanullah Khan

hot political

Schildhauer . The issue of Italian prisoners of war in the Soviet Union remained a hot political topic in post-war Italy. It was never seriously investigated because of the Soviet authorities’ unwillingness to yield information about the destiny of the tens of thousands of missing soldiers. Their case was used in an instrumental way by the centre-right parties which accused the Soviet Union of not returning its prisoners of war (Democrazia Cristiana manifesto, 1948), and denied as anti-communist propaganda by the left (Robotti) during the first democratic elections in Italy (1948). Unbiased information underpinning the size of the tragedy and an objective historical reconstruction came only after the fall of the Soviet Union (Giusti, 2003) when most public interest in Italy had already faded away. A few years later he became acquainted with Abbot Attala, who had come to Luxeuil on a visit, and, with permission of Abbot Eustace of Luxeuil, joined Attala's community at Bobbio in Italy. Upon the death of Attala in 627, Bertulf was elected by the monks of Bobbio as their abbot. Like his predecessor, he insisted on the observance of the austere rule introduced by St. Columban, the founder of Bobbio Abbey, and preached fearlessly against Arianism, which had gained a firm foothold in Italy under the Lombard kings. He entered the Society of Jesus at eighteen, and, having finished his studies, taught philosophy and theology in several colleges of his Order. He was subsequently rector of Barcelona and Cervera, and Chancellor of the University of Gandia. He was in Madrid, supervising the printing of some books, when the decree of the expulsion of the Society from Spain was announced. He went on board ship without complaint, reportedly thinking only of consoling his companions, several of whom were old and infirm. He took up his abode in Ferrara, Italy and it was there, in exile, that he carried out much of his philological work. His only help was the public library, and even that his infirmities often prevented him from consulting. http: www.newadvent.org cathen 01236a.htm Education and Erasmus He received a superb education firstly from James Watson, later Dean of the Arts faculty at St Andrews, and latterly from Patrick Paniter whom he seemed to have been close to. In 1507 Alexander Stewart was sent to France on the royal ship the ''Treasurer (Treasurer (warship))''. His education continued with lengthy journeys to the Low Countries, and Italy in 1507. In Padua he studied rhetoric and Greek (Greek language) under Erasmus who wrote a moving obituary after young Alexander’s death at the battle of Flodden Field.

Since ancient times (classical antiquity), Etruscan (Etruscan civilization), Magna Graecia and other cultures (Prehistoric Italy) have flourished in the territory of present-day Italy, being eventually absorbed by Rome (Ancient Rome), that has for centuries remained the leading political and religious centre of Western civilisation (Western world), capital of the Roman Empire and Christianity. During the Dark Ages (Dark Ages (historiography)), the Italian Peninsula faced calamitous invasions by barbarian tribes (Migration Period), but beginning around the 11th century, numerous Italian city-states rose to great prosperity through shipping, commerce and banking (indeed, modern capitalism has its roots in Medieval Italy). Especially during The Renaissance, Italian culture thrived, producing scholars, artists, and polymaths such as Leonardo da Vinci, Galileo, Michelangelo and Machiavelli. Italian explorers such as Polo (Marco Polo), Columbus (Christopher Columbus), Vespucci (Amerigo Vespucci), and Verrazzano (Giovanni da Verrazzano) discovered new routes to the Far East and the New World, helping to usher in the European Age of Discovery. Nevertheless, Italy would remain fragmented into many warring states for the rest of the Middle Ages, subsequently falling prey to larger European powers (Power (international relations)#Modern Age European powers) such as France (French First Empire), Spain (Spanish Empire), and later Austria (Austrian Empire). Italy would thus enter a long period of decline that lasted until the mid 19th century.

After various unsuccessful attempts, the second (Second War of Italian Independence) and the third (Third War of Italian Independence) wars of Italian Independence resulted in the unification (Italian unification) of most of present-day Italy between 1859-66.

Italy plays a prominent role in global military, cultural and diplomatic affairs "Italy plays a prominent role in European and global military, cultural and diplomatic affairs. The country's European political, social and economic influence make it a major regional power." See ''Italy: Justice System and National Police Handbook'', Vol. 1 (Washington, D.C.: International Business Publications, 2009), p. 9. and thus is considered a major regional power. "Operation Alba may be considered one of the most important instances in which Italy has acted as a regional power, taking the lead in executing a technically and politically coherent and determined strategy." See Federiga Bindi, ''Italy and the European Union'' (Washington, D.C.: Brookings Institution Press, 2011), p. 171. Italy is a founding and leading member of the European Union. Italy is a member of numerous international institutions, including the UN, NATO, the OECD, the OSCE, the DAC (Development Assistance Committee), the WTO, the G4 (G4 (EU)), G6 (G6 (EU)), G7, G8, G10 (Group of Ten (economic)), G20, the Union for the Mediterranean, the Latin Union, the Council of Europe, the Central European Initiative, the ASEM and the Uniting for Consensus.
