Programming on this one is more in-depth with a nice break, acceleration and some cool guitarwork. Pure Steel records songs: The album title and cover art already indicate what’s on offer; a blend of American mould, 90’s Atmospheric PowerMetal centered around a Mythical concept that is perfectly voiced by singer Chapel, delivering a semi-narrative like level-tone voice in a low, mid-range key.

Most of the atmospheres on the album are funnelled by the Dark sphered synths and the ‘stretched’ vocal-lines of Chapel Stormcrow. Riffs are gripping and the guitars ‘grainy’ which adds up to the pure, live-like sound of it all.

Wiktionary — Wiktionary is a multilingual, web-based project to create a free content dictionary of all words in all languages. It is collaboratively edited via a wiki, and its name is a portmanteau of the words wiki and it is available in languages and in Simple English. Like its sister project Wikipedia, Wiktionary is run by the Wikimedia Foundation and its wiki software, MediaWiki, allows almost anyone with access to the website to create and edit entries.

The English Wiktionary includes a Wikisaurus of synonyms of various words, Wiktionary data are frequently used in various natural language processing tasks. Wiktionary was brought online on December 12, , following a proposal by Daniel Alston, on March 28, , the first non-English Wiktionaries were initiated in French and Polish.

Wiktionaries in numerous other languages have since been started, Wiktionary was hosted on a temporary domain name until May 1, , when it switched to the current domain name. As of November , Wiktionary features over Seven of the 18 bots registered at the English Wiktionary created , of the entries there, of the , definitions the English Wiktionary provides for , English words, , are form of definitions of this kind. This means its coverage of English is slightly smaller than that of major monolingual print dictionaries, the Oxford English Dictionary, for instance, has , headwords, while Merriam-Websters Third New International Dictionary of the English Language, Unabridged has , entries.

Detailed statistics exist to show how many entries of various kinds exist, the English Wiktionary does not rely on bots to the extent that some other editions do. The French and Vietnamese Wiktionaries, for example, imported large sections of the Free Vietnamese Dictionary Project and these imported entries make up virtually all of the Vietnamese editions contents. Almost all non-Malagasy-language entries of the Malagasy Wiktionary were copied by bot from other Wiktionaries, like the English edition, the French Wiktionary has imported the approximately 20, entries from the Unihan database of Chinese, Japanese, and Korean characters.

Part of the International Year of Planet Earth book series IYPE Abstract Peatlands are an important natural archive for past climatic changes, primarily due to their sensitivity to changes in the water balance and the dating possibilities of peat sediments. In addition, peatlands are an important sink as well as potential source of greenhouse gases.

The first part of this chapter discusses a range of well-established and novel proxies studied in peat cores peat humification, macrofossils, testate amoebae, stomatal records from subfossil leaves, organic biomarkers and stable isotope ratios, aeolian sediment influx and geochemistry that are used for climatic and environmental reconstructions, as well as recent developments in the dating of these sediments. The second part focuses on the role that peatland ecosystems may play as a source or sink of greenhouse gases.

Emphasis is placed on the past and future development of peatlands in the discontinuous permafrost areas of northern Scandinavia, and the role of regenerating mined peatlands in north-western Europe as a carbon sink or source.

In breaststroke, competitors are allowed to take one dolphin kick at the start and one after each turn before starting their breaststroke kick. But with no underwater video judging, swimmers are sometimes able to sneak in an extra dolphin kick – a whip-like motion generated from the hips. Video replays appear to show van der Burgh taking three of them. He also said other swimmers employ the same tactic.

Silver medalist Brenton Rickard appeared to use dolphin kicks at the start last week, and at the World Championships, 50m breaststroke winner Felipe Silva used a dolphin kick at the finish. In the Sydney Morning Herald story, Van der Burgh said there was underwater video technology used at a meet in Sweden in Eight badminton players were kicked out of the Olympics last week after they were accused of deliberately not trying during matches to give themselves a lower seed in the later rounds – effectively securing an easier trip to the finals.

Just like the badminton case, the van der Burgh incident is a fair play issue.
