Energy resources: Geothermal energy
Energy from sources other than fossil and nuclear fuels is to a large extent free of the concerns about environmental effects and renewability that characterise those two sources. Each alternative source supplies energy continually, whether or not we use it. This unit considers one of these alternative sources, geothermal energy derived from the interior heat of the Earth, and the potential for this alternative to supplant fossil and nuclear fuel use to power social needs fast enough to avoid th

"A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning" by John Donne (poetry reading)
The alternative title "A Valediction: Forbidden Mourning" is sometimes used. The picture of compasses is from SciencePhoto: http://www.sciencephoto.com/media/409760/enlarge As virtuous men pass mildly away, And whisper to their souls to go, Whilst some of their sad friends do say The breath goes now, and some say, No: So let us melt, and make no noise, No tear-floods, nor sigh-tempests move, 'Twere profanation of our joys To tell the laity our love. Moving of th' earth brings harms and fears

Neurasthenia is the old-fashioned name for what was later called ME (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis) and still more recently CFS (Chronic Fatigue Syndrome). The poem is a rarity because it is in the voice of the patient. It is over 100 years old.
