... tide Also referred to as ‘left‐of‐centre’, ‘left‐leaning’, and ‘radical social democratic’ governments in Latin America. The term first came into public discourse following the victory of Hugo Chávez in the Venezuelan presidential elections of 1998 . Subsequently, the election of governments in Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Bolivia, Nicaragua, Ecuador, and Guatemala consolidated the pink tide. In terms of their regional and diplomatic policies, pink tide governments attempted to be more assertive in their response to US policy imperatives and that...

...diverging from High German dialects that were developing below the so-called Benrath Line (running just south of Düsseldorf, Kassel, Magdeburg, and Frankfurt an der Oder) into a distinct language through a series of vowel and consonant shifts. Compare Dutch tijd and English tide with German Zeit ‘time’, or English plow and Dutch ploeg with German Pflug , among other regular patterns. This restructuring of consonants through the effects of the High German sound shift phonetically separated English, Frisian, and Dutch from German. These sound shifts...

Written during a break in the composition of Victory , it was finished in early January 1914 . In the course of trying to secure serialization for the tale, Pinker approached Pall Mall Magazine , whose editor recommended that the title be changed to ‘Davidson of Saigon’. In response, Conrad suggested simply ‘The Dollars’ and, as an alternative, ‘The Spoiled...

...phenomena. As Halley pointed out, this did not result in solving the problem of finding longitude at sea, but was of theoretical importance. Halley spent another season at sea ( 1701 ), investigating the tides in the English Channel in the same vessel he had used for his Atlantic voyages. Again, the result was a chart, indicating the direction of the tides, with a formula for estimating their height according to the position of the moon. After a diplomatic appointment for recommending improvements of port fortifications in the Mediterranean ( 1702–1703 ),...

...The pattern of Conrad’s relationships with publisher changed in two major ways during his career. By engaging J. B. Pinker as his literary agent in 1900 , Conrad was largely released from the burden of personally marketing his fiction. But this great advantage also brought with it a set of new economic pressures, since he also lost that network of supportive relationships and financial sponsorship provided by individual publishers. With Pinker as his middle-man, he became but one writer among many in a competitive and increasingly industrialized Edwardian ...

... Zimmermann , the painters and sculptors of the Asam family, as well as the sculptor Kändler , who provided models for the Dresden porcelain factory, contributed to a distinctive central European Rococo style that continued to flourish in the late 18th century, long after the tide of taste in France and elsewhere had turned towards the solemnity of Neoclassicism, beginning in the 1760s. Rococo first came under sustained attack in the country that had invented it. In the age of the Enlightenment, a style that had no intellectual underpinning was vulnerable...

...as embodied chiefly in the hero, while deploring the cowardice of the Lugarenos , the corruption of the Spanish. and the fanatical passions of Irishmen like O’Brien. The novel shows the English and Spanish struggling to maintain control of their colonies against a rising tide of nationalism and demands for secession and independence. As in Nostromo , which Conrad began writing immediately after Romance , national interests can take strangely European forms: O’Brien rules Cuba for the Spanish and makes war on the English with American-built schooners,...

This scenario seems, however, to have lingered in Conrad’s memory, since he later used certain of its features in ‘The Planter of Malata’ ( Within the Tides ). A further proposal by S. S. Pawling in May 1904 that Conrad and R. B. Cunninghame Graam might collaborate on a joint articale was initially ‘fascinating’ ( CL , iii.140), but turned out to be impracticable. Three later desultory attempts at collaboration similarly came to...

...of filial piety, a main tenet of which segregated and confined women to their domestic roles as wives and mothers. This coalescence of historical forces was embodied in the increasingly common practice of foot‐binding. As a mark of distinction, foot‐binding achieved the high tide of its common appeal during the Ming ( 1368–1644 ) and Qing ( 1644–1912 ) dynasties. According to one estimate, half the women under Ming‐Qing rule had bound feet. More than a mere custom, foot‐binding became ensconced in the everyday life; it prompted a certain ambitiousness...

...birds follow ibises, feeding in their wake. Ibises tend to eat small prey that are swallowed quickly, avoiding loss to piratical attacks. Ibises are diurnal, although spoonbills more often feed crepuscularly and at night. Along the coast, the feeding schedule is determined by tides. Communal roosts, which are located near feeding grounds and may be shared with herons, storks, and cormorants, have been known in some species to number in the tens of thousands of birds. Specific roost sites may be temporary, lasting only as long as nearby food supplies;...

...formal experimentalism prized by T. S. Eliot and Ezra Pound . His poems of the early 1930s display instead a mastery of rhyme and stanza forms, as well as an urbane, liberal, and modern sensitivity keenly aware of the fragility of its aspirations and pretensions. To the rising tide of economic depression and fascism in Europe, MacNeice's response was a pragmatic, skeptical socialism rather than the communism of many of his friends: “To a Communist” ( 1933 ), indeed, warns against basing sweeping generalizations upon contingent historical circumstances.

...he tackles the more compact genre of the short story. Perhaps the most surprising aspect of Stone's novel Damascus Gate ( 1998 ) is its Dickensian plotting, in which a multitude of seemingly disparate souls collide with and carom off each other amid the frenetic and dangerous tides of modern-day Jerusalem. Stone makes a concerted attempt to paint the Holy City as, morally and politically, nothing less than the center of the world, the place where “religion…is something that's happening now, today,” because “the monuments of Jerusalem [do] not belong to the...
