(Book). A Perfect Union of Contrary Things is the authorized biography of musician and vintner Maynard James Keenan. Co-author Sarah Jensen's 30-year friendship with Keenan gives her unique insight into his history and career trajectory. The book traces Keenan's journey from his Midwest childhood to his years in the Army to his time in art school, from his stint at a Boston pet shop to his place in the international spotlight and his influence on contemporary music and regional winemaking. A comprehensive portrayal of a versatile and dedicated artist, A Perfect Union of Contrary Things pays homage to the people and places that shaped the man and his art. Until now, Maynard's fans have had access to only an abridged version of his story. A Perfect Union of Contrary Things presents the outtakes, the scenes of disappointment and triumph, and the events that led him to take one step after the next, to change direction, to explore sometimes surprising opportunities. Included are sidebars in his own words, often humorous anecdotes that illuminate the narrative, as well as commentary by his family members, friends, instructors, and industry colleagues. The book also features a foreword by Alex Grey, an American visionary artist and longtime friend of Keenan. Accompanying the text are photos of Keenan from childhood to the present. Maynard's story is a metaphor for the reader's own evolution and an encouragement to follow one's dreams, hold fast to individual integrity, and work ceaselessly to fulfill our creative potential.

The cognitive abilities of birds are remarkable: hummingbirds integrate spatial and temporal information about food sources, day-old chicks have a sense of numbers, parrots can make and use tools, and ravens have sophisticated insights in social relationships. This volume describes the full range of avian cognitive abilities, the mechanisms behind such abilities and how they relate to the ecology of the species. Synthesising the latest research in avian cognition, a range of experts in the field provide first-hand insights into experimental procedures, outcomes and theoretical advances, including a discussion of how the findings in birds relate to the cognitive abilities of other species, including humans. The authors cover a range of topics such as spatial cognition, social learning, tool use, perceptual categorization and concept learning, providing the broader context for students and researchers interested in the current state of avian cognition research, its key questions and appropriate experimental approaches.

Glasmalerei und Architektur des 13. Jahrhunderts gehören zu den zentralen Themen der Kunstgeschichte, es handelt sich um klassische Gegenstände der Forschung. Analysiert werden sie bis heute getrennt voneinander: Das Fenster in Form und Gefüge zählt zur Architektur, seine Verglasung nicht. Die Schnittstelle zwischen Werkstein und Verglasung gilt mehr als trennend denn als verbindend – eine Auffassung, die der mittelalterlichen Baupraxis diametral gegenüberstehen muss. Das II. Internationale Paul-Frankl-Kolloquium, ausgerichtet vom Institut für Kunstgeschichte und Archäologien Europas der Martin-Luther-Universität Halle-Wittenberg gemeinsam mit den Arbeitsstellen für Glasmalereiforschung des Corpus Vitrearum Medii Aevi Deutschland in Potsdam (Berlin-Brandenburgische Akademie der Wissenschaften) und Freiburg im Breisgau (Mainzer Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur) stellte 2014 in Halle/S. erstmals die Frage nach der gegenseitigen Abhängigkeit von Architektur und Glasmalerei im 13. Jahrhundert in Mitteleuropa und widmete sich den offenen Fragen zum Verhältnis von Bauhütte und Glasmalereiwerkstatt: Nahm man Rücksicht bei der Rahmenform auf den Bildinhalt? Gab es provisorische Verglasungen? Wie ist das Verhältnis der Farbfassungen von Fensterrahmen und Verglasung? Gibt es auf mittelalterlichen Planzeichnungen Hinweise auf die Berücksichtigung von Glasmalereien? Gibt es überhaupt bauliche Rücksichtnahmen auf die Glasmalerei über die Wiedereinsetzung älterer Fenster in einem Neubau hinaus? Der Tagungsband vereint zwölf Aufsätze, in denen Kunsthistoriker, Bauforscher und Restauratoren aus Deutschland, Polen und der Schweiz hierzu ihre aktuellen Forschungsergebnisse vorstellen.
